COMMENT: It is not very sur­pris­ing that Hein­rich Himm­ler’s daugh­ter was employed by the BND, the final incar­na­tion of the Gehlen spy out­fit. Many of the most heinous of the SS war crim­i­nals she worked to pro­tect under the aus­pices of Stille Hil­fe (“Silent Help”) were employed by the “Org” from its ear­li­est incar­na­tion, through­out its time as an annex to the CIA.

Her employ­ment there was osten­si­bly for two years, end­ing in the very sig­nif­i­cant year 1963, when “Team Gehlen” was involved with the mur­der of Pres­i­dent Kennedy.

Some of the many links Stille Hil­fe has to peo­ple and insti­tu­tions around the world, past and present:

Bur­witz remained active in the orga­ni­za­tion vir­tu­al­ly to the end.

“Hein­rich Himmler’s Daugh­ter Was Employed in Post-War West  Ger­many” by Lucia Suarez Sang [Bild] ; Fox News; 6/29/2018.

The daugh­ter of Hein­rich Himm­ler, who led Adolf Hitler’s ruth­less SS, worked as a sec­re­tary for West Germany’s spy agency in the 1960s despite nev­er renounc­ing Nazism and remain­ing active in far-right extrem­ism for decades.

The BND, the country’s for­eign intel­li­gence agency, con­firmed to Fox News on Fri­day that Gudrun Bur­witz-Himm­ler was employed from 1961 until 1963 as a sec­re­tary in Munich under a dif­fer­ent name. . . .

Gudrun Bur­witz as a child and an elder­ly woman.

. . . . Bur­witz-Himm­ler, who was famous­ly pho­tographed with her father at var­i­ous Nazi events when she was a child, was a noto­ri­ous post­war sup­port­er of the extreme right and remained active in those cir­cles into her old age. She died last month in Munich at 88. . . . .

. . . . She worked at the BND at a time when it was led by Rein­hard Gehlen, a con­tro­ver­sial ex-WWII Ger­man gen­er­al who also worked for U.S. intel­li­gence post­war and employed many for­mer mil­i­tary offi­cers and Nazis as spies. Gehlen ran the then-West Ger­many spy agency until 1968.

After the war, Bur­witz-Himm­ler was arrest­ed and made to tes­ti­fy at the Nurem­berg tri­als and repeat­ed­ly sought to jus­ti­fy her father’s actions. She mar­ried jour­nal­ist Wulf Dieter Bur­witz, who lat­er became a par­ty offi­cial in the Bavar­i­an sec­tion of the far-right NPD.

She was also affil­i­at­ed with Stille Hil­fe, or “Silent Assis­tance,” which helped accused Nazi war crim­i­nals find refuge and avoid extra­di­tion. It is believed the group was first cre­at­ed by a group of SS offi­cers and right-wing Ger­man cler­gy. She remained a com­mit­ted Holo­caust denier until her death. . . .
