Himmler, Hitler and the End of the Reich (2001)
Documentary looking at the relationship between Hitler and Himmler, and how the latter made secret approaches to the Allies as the Second World War in Europe drew to a close, a betrayal of the Nazi principle of absolute loyalty and obedience to the Fuehrer. Also looks at his failed attempts to use Jewish hostages to barter for money or equipment with the Allies, and at instances where other SS generals contradicted or refused to follow unnecessary suicidal military orders from Hitler.

Tells the story of Himmler's double-dealing at the end of the Second World War. After it became apparent that Germany was losing the War and whilst Hitler cowered in his bunker, his supposedly loyal henchman was making overtures to his enemies, hoping to save his own skin. Includes testimonies from German veterans, and concentration camp survivors, as well as unfamiliar archive material. Other contributors include Prof Ian Kershaw.
