Gudrun Himmler Burwitz is still very much alive, at age 79, and she remains active, to a degree, in National Socialist issues and the care of Third Reich Veterans. She usually does not grant interviews, receive research visitors or communicate with neo-Nazi's unless they are already introduced to her by a trusted party, such as an SS veteran (of whom very few remain alive today). She prizes her privacy, but continues when necessary to defend the actions and policies of her father, Reichsfuhrer-SS Heinrich Himmler. There have been some rare exceptions to her general policy of privacy, however. One example, noted in a post above, is her appearance at the Ulrichsberg Association meetings of former Waffen-SS men, which takes place annually in October in Ulrichsberg, Austria. Another example is her recent (late August, 2008) brief note communicated through "Stille Hilfe" to endorse the founding of a new National Socialist party in the United States, the American neo-Nazi Party (the ANNP). [Edited by Moderator.] The extent to which the new ANNP is connected to German organizations is, at this point, unclear. But at least this post gives a bit of new information. Thank you! Ohlendorf2.
