I do not think A. B. is present...Gauleiter Grohe, Karl Wolff, Fritz Weitzel, and Julius Schaub.

That's not Albert right behind Hitler?

The Mother of Gudrun smiling: a rarity.

I admire Gudrun; she did in fact inherit a large burden and she has come out on top.

So does David irving, who wrote this little tidbit on Gudrun in his recent "Radical's Diary":

Gabriel A. asks if there is anywhere to see my current lectures on video, perhaps on YouTube?

I reply: "We are gradually posting all my old Real History lectures on DVD and they will be available at my bookstore. Several new releases coming this month!"

Felicity Boncardo remarks that Gudrun Burwitz, Heinrich Himmler's first daughter (right), is her idol. I reply:

Gudrun Burwitz is happily married and a charming old lady now. She has spent her life in the grim shadow of her father. I met her once at the German Federal Archives, in 1993. It was the day I was finally thrown out of the archives "in the interests of the German people" (i.e., their puppet government). She thanked me for donating copies of two of her father's missing diaries, 1935 and 1939, along with a ton of other documents to the archives. I asked her what she was researching. "I am writing a book to clear my father's name," she said. She has been doing it since 1945. I hope my four surviving daughters will one day be as loyal.
Felicity adds: "I'm finding Peter Longerich's biography on Himmler really unfulfillling and arbitrary." I explain: "Peter Longerich comes from the turgid and unreadable 'Richard Skunky Evans' School of Historiography. He is a German, and displayed his charmingly vague knowledge of English in the witness box for Lipstadt in her 2000 trial for libel

Typical Irving quotes, revealing him to be, as always, vicious, unbalanced and deep in denial. He really is a loathsome piece of work, at every level. Gudrun Himmler at least has the excuse of a deeply traumatic adolescence to explain her mental state.

Having said, I am also finding Longerich's biography a disappointment.

Annelie, the photo has no date. But I have your same thought on the possible dating. The boy's face to the left of Gudrun (the one with the bow tie) is not new. I'm thinking .....

A good photo, happy faces in a time that might not have been so good.
