Just seeking clarity.

So Sid has a fair question - As of December, 1943, would you consider Heinrich Himmler as part of the "German Resistance" and a fit and reliable partner in peace negotiations?
Really. You and SID seem mighty close. Are you a team? And how close are you? Close enough to share the same underwear and sock drawer?

Just askin'. And Happy Easter. :D

Hi rcocean,

Thank you for your evident concern at our domestic arrangements.

Yes, the underwear and sock drawer has become a bit of an issue of late.

I swear that if daveshoup2MD uses my champagne-pink, Hello Kitty, boxer shorts again, the Civil Partnership is off!

Still, that is our private grief and way off thread.

Back on thread.

Are you proposing Himmler was part of the "German Resistance" and a fit and reliable partner in peace negotiations?

This apparent approach by him is only two months after his notorious "Posen Speech" where, addressing a high ranking SS audience, he explicitly mentions his and their role in their ongoing attempt to exterminate the Jews.


Cheers,

Sid.

Don't tell Ms. Shoup. After 30+ years, she'd be surprised...

Luck of ducks out for Easter, I think.

Indeed. She's half crazy, but that's why one wants to be there...
