"Will be interesting to see what comes to the surface now that she’s dead - mementoes, writings, etc. although she had no children so god only knows where her belongings will turn up." J. Duncan, above

Most bios of Gudrun Himmler Burwitz state that she and her husband had two children...is there some lingering doubt about this?

Gudrun Burwitz, born Gudrun Himmler, passed away in the year 2018. https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gudrun_Burwitz

The reason for all the photos from her childhood years is not understandable to me, what is the reason for all this?

Is this a topic for "collectors", what exactly is the reason for posting all these photos?

Hans...again here goes!

People are interested and its part of the research on families
and people of the time.

Himmler and his family are certainly of interest and her life since
the war is also of some interest to many.

We (forum) have been researching all types of people and posting
photos as long as we give source.

Helge posts interesting info.

Annelie,

I try to understand, but where will it end, in detailed close-ups of the poisened children of the Goebbels family?

And someone will find all this, would this be also okay here in the forum, for sure not.

Sorry!

Hans Gudrun died two years ago.

I am sure these children photos will in no way upset this women.

As to the grandchildren and great grandchildren....I don't think there is
much interest other than years ago everyone was interested in Hitlers
family in North America but they were wise to change their names and
live an normal life I am told.

"Is this a topic for "collectors", what exactly is the reason for posting all these photos?"

This question from Hans1906 is indeed interesting. From my viewpoint, this and similar forums are places for those who are not only collectors of artifacts from the Third Reich and NSDAP era, but also for those of us who are historians -- either professionally or as amateurs -- and those who are simply interested in that most unusual and greatly influential period of world history. So, from that position, I think the personalities of those individuals who were actively involved in creating and sustaining that era are certainly of historical interest -- at least to me -- as are their families as they continued living into our own time period.

Hope this is helpful to you. Prosit,

Br. James

Sorry, my view is much different.

Gudrun Himmler/Burwitz was never a person of public interest, the daughter of Himmler, thats it.

Her own later political "activities" do not belong in a forum like the AHF, as a person and her later life, I am not interested
in this person.

Annelie, this lady is not "Gudrun" to me, sorry, but this is probably the difference between you and me, to me the
lady is "Gudrun Burwitz", nothing more, nothing less.

Makes absolutely no sense, to struggle all this any longer, she is dead and gone.

The topic and posts regarding families of personalities of the Dritte Reich are of
interest to some people.

The History Forum also must think this is correct for all these years there have always
been such and hopefully continue.

Makes no matter what I think or for that matter you or others....not my call.

Thank you, Annelie; I completely agree. Indeed, there are a number of forum topics and threads that I don't find of interest and don't read, but to say that any of the forums or topics that are of no interest to me "do not belong in a forum like the AHF" is far beyond my authority to decide! That there are those here who do find those topics of interest is fine with me!

Imagine...

Being the grandson, the granddaughter, of a former war criminal, just image this.

And imagine, to see dozens and dozens of photos from your own family heritage enrolled to the worldwide public...
For no reason, just for the so called "curiosity" of the longing audience.

I am not talking about the daughter of Himmler at all, just a few photos of her would have been enough.
No, not enough, the audience wants to see more and more, the thirst for sensation is not fulfilled, yet.

Sorry, not my interest, whoever needs all this, not my problem.
