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:

  • A key German court that was involved in the legal proceedings against the National Socialist Underground.
  • Cardinal Frings, who was instrumental in the rise of Joseph Ratzinger through the Vatican ranks.
  • Jurg Haider attended a meeting of Waffen SS veterans that was linked to Stille Hilfe.

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. . . .
