Himmler's sister Olga in Ravensbrück

Postby Pieter Kuiper on 08 Aug 2005 18:25

Included among Ravensbrück prisoners were special prisoners such as ... Olga Himmler, sister of the SS chief, incarcerated because of her affair with a Polish officer.

I am intrigued. Could someone with a Himmler-biography confirm this, and maybe provide some details (like - what did Himmler do with the Pole?).

Absolute nonsense. Himmler didn't have a sister.

Philip E. Rosen and Eric J. Epstein wite in "Dictionary of the Holocaust - Biography, Geography & Terminology" (1997) under the entry Ravensbrueck:
Himmler’s sister, Olga, was imprisoned at this site for having sex with a Pole [Rassenschande].
No source is given.

The following only mentions an elder brother Gebhard and a younger brother Ernst:
