    Post ϟϟ-Obergruppenführer Reinhard Heydrich (ᛉ1904 – ᛣ1942): An Example for Future Generations


    by H.H. Norden

    Reinhard Tristan Eugen Heydrich was born on 7th March 1904 in Halle an der Saale. He was the son of Richard Bruno Heydrich, a composer and Elisabeth Anna Amalia Krantz. The father was at the time of his birth director of a music school. Reinhard visited the Reform-Realgymnasium at the Hedwigstraße in Halle an der Saale.

    Already as a scholar he was very educated. He studied for instance the book „Histoire de la civilisation“ by the French author Charles Seignobos and discussed the contents with his friend Erich Schultze.

    After having finished his grammar-school Reinhard Heydrich Joined the Reichsmarine as a see-cadet in Kiel-Holtenau. The influence of the famous „Seeteufel“ Graf Luckner, who stayed frequently as a guest at the residence of the Heydrich-family, certainly played a part with regard to Heydrich’s choice for a career with the navy. He started his service with the Crew 22.

    After a training-period of four and a half years he was promoted Leutnant zur See on 1st October 1926 and then educated for a liaison officer. In 1928 he became Oberleutnant zur See. According to the later vice-admiral Kleikamp Heydrich was a man who as far as talent, knowledge and skillfulness were concerned, stood far above the average. Nothing seemed to obstruct a successful career with the navy. Destiny however had decreed otherwise.

    On 6th December 1930 Oberleutnant Heydrich met with the eighteen years old Lina von Osten. She came from the island Fehmarn in the Ostsee where her father was a school-master. On Boxing-day 1930 the couple became engaged. Heydrich sent his engagement-card also to a former girlfriend who was the daughter of an influential industrialist. The latter demanded from Heydrich that he would marry his daughter who wished to be Heydrich’s fiancée herself.

    When he refused this, the father lodged a complaint through admiral Raeder resulting in Heydrich being summoned before a navy court of honor. Giving effect to a recommendation of this court of honour admiral Raeder decided that Oberleutnant zur See Reinhard Heydrich had to be dismissed from the navy. It is remarkable that one has never discovered a written piece of evidence relating to the described court of honor-procedure. Heydrich was convinced that he was dismissed from the navy because of political reasons.

    Through the later ϟϟ-Obergruppenführer Karl von Eberstein Heydrich made contact with Heinrich Himmler who had become Reichsführer. SS in January 1929. Himmler was just in search of a capable man to build up an intelligence service for the ϟϟ. He gave Heydrich twenty minutes time to put on paper how he would take up such a task.

    Heydrich wrote down his ideas, sketched a suitable organization-structure and submitted the result to the Reichsführer who was very impressed and immediately decided to admit the former naval officer. Heydrich who already had become a member of the NSDAP on 1st June 1931, became a member of the ϟϟ in Hamburg on 14th July 1931. He now was an ϟϟ-Sturmmann with the SS-number 10120. On 26th December 1931 the marriage between Reinhard Heydrich and Lina von Osten took place in the village-church of Grossenbrode.

    Heydrich began now with building up an intelligence department. This was in the early days known as „Abteilung Ic“. End 1931 two rooms were rented for the „ϟϟ-Ic“ on the fourth floor of the Türkenstraße 25 in Munich. This was the residence of party member Viktoria Edrich who had been hiding the „Blutfahne“ in her wardrobe during the period that the SA and the ϟϟ were banned.

    In these times Heydrich was an ϟϟ-Hauptsturmführer. On 25th December 1931 he became ϟϟ-Sturmbannführer and on 29th July 1932 ϟϟ-Standartenführer und Chef des Sicherheitsdienstes des Reichsführers-ϟϟ. The name of the service was now Sicherheitsdienst (SD).

    In September 1932 the SD had its seat at a small villa in the Zuccalistraße 4 in Munich; Heydrich and his wife lived at the same address. Heydrich as leader of the Sicherheitsdienst was called „C“; his office „Zentrale Dienststelle des SD“.

    In June 1933 Heydrich’s first son Klaus was born. The year of the assumption of power, 1933, also brought the rank of ϟϟ-Brigadeführer. The SD now had its seat at the Wittelsbacherpalace in the Briennerstraße in Munich.

    On 9th November 1933 the SD became an independent ϟϟ-office. During the months November and December 1934 the SD moved to the Wilhelmstraße 102 in Berlin.


    On 17th June 1936 Reinhard Heydrich became Chef der Sicherheitspolizei und des SD. On 27th September 1939 the Reichssicherheitshauptamt was formed with Heydrich as chief. In 1940 he was elected Präsident der Internationalen Kriminalpolizeilichen Kommission.

    At the beginning of the German campaign in the West Heydrich passed his fighter pilot examination. During the campaign in Norway he flew from Stavanger several reconnaissance flights over England and Scotland with a Me 110. For his heroic way of acting he was awarded with the bronzene Frontflugspange and the Eiserne Kreuz II. Klasse.

    In the middle of May 1940 he was back in Berlin. On 1st January 1940 he became Reichsleiter des Fachamtes Fechten im NS-Reichsbund für Leibesübungen. During the campaign in Russia Heydrich served once more as a fighter pilot in southern Russia and was awarded with the silberne Frontflugspange and the Eiserne Kreuz I. Klasse,

    On 23rd September 1941 Hitler relieved the Reichsprotektor für Böhmen und Mähren, Constantin von Neurath, of his office and appointed as from 27th September 1941 Reinhard Heydrich as acting Reichsprotektor. At the same time he was promoted ϟϟ-Obergruppenführer. The Führer relied on Heydrich to make the government of the protectorate function in close harmony with the Reich. Karl Hermann Frank, the Staatssekretär, who descended from the Sudetenland should assist him.

    In Prague Heydrich assumed command during an official ceremony at Hradcany Castle. With his wife and children he moved into the castle of Jungfern-Breschan which is situated at about twenty kilometers distance from Prague. In contradiction to the false information which is spread nowadays the measures taken by Heydrich were well received in the protectorate. Two hundred thousand pairs of shoes were distributed free and the tobacco rations for the workers were increased substantially. Heydrich also had plans to rebuild Prague as a German city and to link it through the German Autobahn system with Berlin.

    Besides the position of Reichsprotektor Heydrich did retain the office of chief of the Reichssicherheitshauptamt. It was in this capacity that on 20th January 1942 he presided at a conference which took place in the villa Am Großen Wannsee 56/58 in Berlin. The Reichsmarschall Hermann Göring had authorized Heydrich to make preparations with regard to the solution of the Jewish question.

    In contrast with the allegations of post-war publicists the objective of the national-socialist Germany was not the physical extermination of the Jewish people but to bring to an end the Jewish influence which was experienced as a burden in all parts of the national community. As early as in the thirties German government departments had taken the initiative to stimulate – in cooperation with Jewish organizations – the emigration of Jewish citizens to Palestine. As examples of this policy I can mention the „Haavara-agreement“ and the „Rublee-Wohlthat-agreement“.

    For a detailed explanation of the above-mentioned terms I can recommend the book „Auswanderung der Juden aus dsm Dritten Reich“ by Ingrid Weckert. Particularly the SS believed in a policy which pursued the emigration of the Jews. It was due only to the war – which Germany did not cause – that the emigration started to decrease. In the course of the war the decision was taken to evacuate the Jews to labor settlements in the East. In this context one should remember that already in March 1933 World Jewry had declared war on Germany. The taking of measures to evacuate the Jews from Europe has been the subject of the Wannsee-conference.


    Meanwhile Eduard Benesch who considered himself as president in exile had evolved plans to have Reichsprotektor Heydrich assassinated. Two non-commissioned officers of the former Czechoslovakian army, Jan Kubis and Josef Gabcic, were chosen for this mission. Together with some others they were parachuted into the protectorate on 28th December 1941. During the following months they went into hiding and made inquiries regarding Heydrich’s lifestyle and movements.

    In connection with the increase of activities of terrorist groups, stimulated and financed by London, particularly in Belgium and France Heydrich – who had with his measures restored order in the protectorate – would be appointed to Chef der Zivilverwaltung for Belgium and North-France and to Protektor of Vichy-France. On 27th May 1942 he would leave by plane to Berlin for a meeting with the Führer. By that time the assassins had chosen a hairpin turn in the Prague suburb of Holeschowitz as the place most suited for the assassination since there Heydrich’s car had to reduce speed.

    On 27th May 1942 Heydrich had left Jungfern-Breschan at 10.00 h.; at 10.30 h. he arrived at the spot where the assassins were waiting. He was driven by SS-Oberscharführer Klein in his dark-green open Mercedes Benz. One of the murderers, Gabcic, aimed a stengun at Heydrich and pulled the trigger. Nothing happened. The weapon malfunctioned and failed to fire. Heydrich now drew his pistol and fired at Gabcic.

    At that time the second murderer, Kubis, threw a bomb which exploded close to the right rear-wheel of the Mercedes. Heydrich was seriously injured by fragments but fired nevertheless several shots at Kubis. Then he collapsed. A Czech lady hastened to Heydrich’s assistance and so he was brought to the Bulovka-Hospital where both Czech- as German surgeons tried to save his life during more than one week. Unfortunately it was of no use: in the morning of 4th June 1942 Reinhard Heydrich died.

    The coffin with the mortal remains of the Reichsprotektor lay in state, covered with a swastika flag, in the court-yard of Hradcany Castle. An honor guard of Wehrmacht- and SS-officers stood watch. In the afternoon of 7th June 1942 the coffin was brought by train from Prague to Berlin to be lain in state at the Reichssicherheitshauptamt, Prinz Albrecht Straße 8, and later – on 9th June 1942 – in the Mosaic Hall of the new Reichschancellery.

    During the funeral ceremony the Reichsführer-ϟϟ Heinrich Himmler delivered an oration in which he pointed out the great importance of Reinhard Heydrich. The last speaker was Adolf Hitler who called him one of the best national-socialists, one of the strongest defenders of the idea of the German Reich and one of the greatest adversaries of all enemies of the Reich.

    The Führer awarded the fallen hero the Verwundetenabzeichen in Gold and the oberste Stufe des Deutschen Ordens. The coffin with Heydrich’s body was placed on a gun-carriage towed by six black horses and transported from the Wilhelmstraße to the Invaliden-cemetery. There the great soldier Reinhard Heydrich was laid to his last rest.

    In which way can we, national-socialists in the twenty first-century, follow the example Reinhard Heydrich gave us during his lifetime? In the first place we have to believe unconditionally in the immutable national-socialist ideology and be prepared to do whatever may be necessary for the future of the Aryan race. It is our sacred duty to combat our adversaries with unprecedented hardness. If necessary we will use conspiratorial means while in other situations we will take up arms.

    We do not recognize the legitimacy of the democratic systems which are governing Europe since 1945 and our purpose is consequently to conquer the democracies and to eliminate the prominent politicians of these terrible times. When we as national-socialists really want to gain political and military power there is still a long way to go. Very rarely nowadays one meets politicians who are as national-socialists comparable to their glorious predecessors from the twenties, thirties and forties of the last century.

    It is an insult for every convinced national-socialist that the Jewish controlled media put on a level politicians who pretend to be nationalists and patriots – just think of certain people in Belgium and Austria – with true national-socialists.

    These politicians have nothing to do with the ideology of our Führer Adolf Hitler; repeatedly they disassociate themselves from the so-called ,,crimes of the Third Reich“. One should mistrust these people even more than the Christian, liberal or socialist politicians; they are nothing but characterless cowards and weaklings. The life of ϟϟ-Obergruppenführer Reinhard Heydrich shows us the course to pursue.

    Reinhard Heydrich SS-Obergruppenführer (1904-1942),




    Reinhard Heydrich SS-Obergruppenführer (1904-1942), the Greatest, the ideal National Socialist. Reinhard Heydrich was second in importance to Heinrich Himmler in the Nazi SS organization. One of the best national socialists, one of the best believers in the German ideology, and one of the greatest opponents to all enemies of the Third Reich. Adolf Hitler.



    The Gods of our ancestors looked different. They were men and each had a weapon in his hand, symbolizing the attitude of life that is inherent in our race, that of action, that of a man’s responsibility to himself and to his people. – Reinhard Heydrich.



    “Neither rest nor relax, always keep working on yourself and strive to advance that is the basic creed whether in sport or duty.” – Reinhard Heydrich.



    "We must work on ourselves. We must anchor and maintain the eternal foundations of the ideology transmitted to us by The Leader in unprecedented self – discipline. To protect our Folk, we must be hard on our enemies even at the risk of hurting individual enemies from time to time, and being criticised for our unrestrained brutality from otherwise well meaning people. No one will excuse us, no one will plead extenuating circumstances on our behalf, if we fail in our historical mission due to over objectivity or excessive humanitarianism! It will simply be said that we failed in our historical mission. “ – Reinhard Heydrich.



    "If somebody is our conscious opponent, he must be defeated subjectively and without exception. If for example every German out of pity excludes “one decent” Jew or Freemason from the fight, that would mean60 million exceptions.” – Reinhard Heydrich.



    “It is not our personal happiness which matters, but only whether we achieve our goal or not.” Reinhard Heydrich.



    “The SS man must abide absolutely by the basic principles to be true, honest, decent, loyal and comradely to members of our own blood, but to nobody else.” – Reinhard Heydrich.



    Heydrich was also the recipient of several high ranking Nazi and military awards, including the German Order, Blood Order, Golden Party Badge, bronze and silver combat mission bars and the Iron Cross First and Second Classes. The German Order (German: Deutscher Orden) was the most important award that the Nazi Party could bestow on an individual for "duties of the highest order to the state and party". This award was first made by Adolf Hitler posthumously to Reichsminister Fritz Todt at his funeral in February, 1942. A second posthumous award of the German Order was given to SS-Obergruppenführer Reinhard Heydrich at his funeral in June of that same year. Cynics called the award the "dead hero order" as it was almost always awarded posthumously. The only two persons who received the German Order who survived the war and its consequences were Konstantin Hierl and Arthur Axmann. The German Order was originally to be awarded in three grades, but only the neck order (the highest grade) was ever awarded. This award ranks the second rarest award in the Third Reich (second only to the National Prize for Art and Science). The holders of this award were supposed to form a confraternity. Adolf Hitler viewed this award as his personal decoration to be bestowed only upon those whose services to the state and party he deemed worthy. For this reason, plus the fact that the reverse of the medal bears a facsimile of his signature, it was also informally known as the 'Hitler Order'. There were in all eleven confirmed recipients of this award between 1942 and 1945.



    Biographies of Heydrich are simply extremely biased Allied propaganda describing him as the one responsible for the holocaust. An objective look at Heydrich is hard to find, because History is written by the victors and their exceptional treatment of Heydrich says everything. He is the most maligned individual in today's history books. Why was Heydrich the only senior German figure that the Allies assassinated? Heydrich was appointed as Reich Protector, one of the first things he did was to relax restrictions and to increase food rations and improve the working conditions up to Reich standards. Heydrich was quite popular with Czech farmers due to agricultural policies he introduced which increased their profits. Armament production went up. He instituted a lot of the same programs Hitler had instituted in Germany proper. He was a brave man, an individualist of the first order, an organizational genius, a man of exceptional intelligence and one of the most efficient governors any state or country has ever had. They also knew the resulting inevitable recriminations (i.e. Lidice) would help sour German-Czech relations and push Czechs into the Allied camp. Heydrich had been driving around Prague for years in an open top car because the Czech population was no threat. At factory meetings he mixed among the workers without protection. There was friendship between the Czechs and the Germans. Like the Danes the Czechs accepted German occupation, the German troops behaved well as they did in all occupied countries. There was no tyranny, mistreatment or exploitation, no unemployment or hunger, no national or religious repression, and no plundering or rapes. The Czechs were happy and there was no underground. The Al lies recognised immediately he was very dangerous. The British decided to assassinate him and give the credit to the Czech Government in exile they had set up in London. They weren't partisans, who bombed his car but British-trained assassins of Czech origin, sent to Prague to kill Heydrich. In 1941 and 1942 several small teams of Czechoslovak parachutists were trained at Cholmondeley Castle and Park in Malpas, Cheshire, UK. These teams were dropped into Czechoslovakia to organise the Czechoslovak Resistance and to orchestrate the assassination of SS-Obergruppenfuhrer Reinhard Heydrich who was in command of this area. With the support of other small groups of parachutists dropped later, plans were laid to effect the assassination, with the knowledge and support of the exiled Czechoslovak Government in England. At this time, resistance to German rule in what they had called "the Protectorate of Bohemia and Morvia" was subdued, with many Czechs apparently accepting their situation. It was not enough to assassinate Heydrich, it was then necessary to viciously assassinate his character as well, think about it. In 1933, Canaris was made head of the Abwehr, Germany's official military intelligence agency, and there was contact with British intelligence during this time, despite the war between the two countries. Reinhard Heydrich and Heinrich Himmler investigated in detail the sources of Canaris's information on Operation Barbarossa, arriving at the conclusion that there had indeed been contact between him and the British. David Irving has hypothesized that Abwehr head Wilhelm Canaris was working for British Intelligence, and Heydrich seems to have been on to him. Canaris realized this and told his handlers, who took out Heydrich to remove the threat to their source. Canaris who was involved in numerous plots to depose or kill Hitler was executed as a traitor on 9 April 1945, in the Flossenbürg concentration camp, just weeks before the end of the war.

Two non-commissioned officers of the former Czechoslovakian army, Jan Kubis and Josef Gabcic, were chosen for this mission. Together with some others they were parachuted into the protectorate on 28th December 1941. During the following months they went into hiding and made inquiries regarding Heydrich’s lifestyle and movements. In connection with the increase of activities of terrorist groups, stimulated and financed by London, particularly in Belgium and France Heydrich – who had with his measures restored order in the protectorate – would be appointed to Chef der Zivilverwaltung for Belgium and North-France and to Protektor of Vichy-France. On 27th May 1942 he would leave by plane to Berlin for a meeting with the Führer. By that time the assassins had chosen a hairpin turn in the Prague suburb of Holeschowitz as the place most suited for the assassination since there Heydrich's car had to reduce speed. On 27th May 1942 Heydrich had left Jungfern-Breschan at 10.00 h.; at 10.30 h. he arrived at the spot where the assassins were waiting. He was driven by SS-Oberscharführer Klein in his dark-green open Mercedes Benz. One of the murderers, Gabcic, aimed a stengun at Heydrich and pulled the trigger. Nothing happened. The weapon malfunctioned and failed to fire. Heydrich now drew his pistol and fired at Gabcic. At that time the second murderer, Kubis, threw a bomb which exploded close to the right rear-wheel of the Mercedes. Heydrich was seriously injured by fragments but fired nevertheless several shots at Kubis. Then he collapsed. A Czech lady hastened to Heydrich's assistance and so he was brought to the Bulovka-Hospital where both Czech- as German surgeons tried to save his life during more than one week. Unfortunately it was of no use: in the morning of 4th June 1942 Reinhard Heydrich died.



    The coffin with the mortal remains of the Reichsprotektor lay in state, covered with a swastika flag, in the court-yard of Hradcany Castle. An honor guard of Wehrmacht- and SS-officers stood watch. In the afternoon of 7th June 1942 the coffin was brought by train from Prague to Berlin to be lain in state at the Reichssicherheitshauptamt, Prinz Albrecht Straße 8, and later – on 9th June 1942 – in the Mosaic Hall of the new Reichschancellery. During the funeral ceremony the Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler delivered an oration in which he pointed out the great importance of Reinhard Heydrich. The last speaker was Adolf Hitler who called him one of the best national-socialists, one of the strongest defenders of the idea of the German Reich and one of the greatest adversaries of all enemies of the Reich. The Führer awarded the fallen hero the Verwundetenabzeichen in Gold and the oberste Stufe des Deutschen Ordens. The coffin with Heydrich's body was placed on a gun-carriage towed by six black horses and transported from the Wilhelmstraße to the Invaliden-cemetery. There the great soldier Reinhard Heydrich was laid to his last rest.



    The death of Heydrich according to Himmler, “hit Hitler harder than a lost battle.” The National Socialist funeral began in Prague where a death mask was made the day he died. The following night an SS detachment, accompanied by torchbearers, bore the coffin on a gun carriage to the Hradshin Palace where the coffin was put on display in the Ehrenhof courtyard, behind a giant Iron Cross, flaming torches set in the wall sconces and a black-and-white SS flag at half mast. Thousands filed past to pay their respects. The funeral service in Prague was accompanied by Beethoven, the SS-Treuelied, the German national anthem and the Horst Wessel. The deceased had been a thinker who had won the love of the people of Bohemia and Moravia. The coffin then left Prague aboard a special train for Berlin to the Mosaic Room at the New Reich Chancellery. The State Orchestra played the Funeral March from Wagners’s Götterdämmerung. Himmler lead the eulogies praising Heydrich. Hitler laid a wreath and said


    “I have only a few words to dedicate to the deceased, he was one of the best National Socialists, one of the strongest defenders of the concept of the German Reich, one of the greatest opponents of all enemies of the Reich. As Führer of the Party and the German Reich, I decorate thee, my dear comrade Heydrich, the second German to receive it following Todt, with the highest award in my gift, the highest stage of the German Order.” The orchestra played The Dead Soldier’s Song –Ich Hatt’Einen Kameraden before the coffin was carried out to Beethoven’s Eroika. The body was then interred in a simply grave at the Invaliden Cemetery.

    How hated was Reinhard Heydrich in Prague? - David Irving






    Lina Heydrich



    “At the moment I would’nt know where we would be safer than right here, Lina Heydrich, letter written to her parents on Fehmarn, 6 February, 1945, to flee as other women do, is out of the question for me. By my decision to remain here after Reinhard died, I made a political commitment. I am here what I always was, perhaps the only women in public life who has not disappeared into anonymity through the death of her husband. It is therefore pointless to do what others do. If we lose the war, the Russians will know where to find us to liquidate us. There will be no pardon for anyone who was active nationally or bandied themselves about. Either that or the British and Americans will come. And with them the Jews. With our Jewish laws we burned our bridges. The Jews will also be able to get at us. There is no point in deluding ourselves. All this we Know. Lina Heydrich.



    When he was dying Reinhard Heydrich advised his wife Lina to “go back to Fehmarn” and in March 1945 she did, as Germany’s enemies were converging on the Reich from the west, the east and the south. She had the coffin containing the remains of her son Klaus disinterred and set off in mid-April,1945 in a circus caravan in which was later destroyed by Al lied aircraft. She sheltered with Frieda Wolff wife of Himmler’s adjutant Karl Wolff then the American Army arrived. Because as she wrote “I have had to live as the wife of a war criminal .. “ she sent her children to her parents in north Germany. Two soldiers and a Hitler Youth boy took Heider and Silke to Lubeck. Descher the Hitler Youth boy took them on to Fehmarn to their grandparents Jurgen and Mthilde von Osten. Lina and little Marte finally arrived at her parents house on 7 September, 1945. 1946 she went through the first British military denazification procedure. Lina Heydrich feared the British would deport her to Czechoslovakia to stand trial on outstanding indictments. So in April, 1946 she went to Austria where she got work as a milkmaid on a farm at Wels, Lower Austria. On 19 October, 1947, the Prague Peoples Special Court, Department XIII, found Lina Heydrich, whereabouts unknown, guilty of supporting the Nazi Movement and Mistreatment of Jews during her residence at Schloss and sentenced her to life imprisonment, twenty years of which was to be spent at forced labour. The various offences included: starving prisoners, allowing guards to beat them with rifle butts and whips, refusing medical help to a prisoner who fell from a tree and later died, conspiring with the authorities to execute all persons suspected of complicity in the assassination of her husband. 29 June, 1949 Lina Heydrich was before the Main Denazification commission for Oldeburg/Holstein. She pleaded “ignorant of any guilt.” She had been a member of the NSDAP from 1933 to 1945. The Commission put her on the list of ‘Collaborators’. Since 1950 she had been filing suit against the Federal Republic of Germany for a widow and orphans’ pension for herself and her children. 9 February, 1952 she was awarded a pension back dated to 1950. The authorities appealed and after long drawn-out proceedings in three senates it was found in favour of the claimant on 20 June, 1958. This pension helped provide a modest existence until her death on the 14 August,1985. She also run a modest guesthouse at Todendorf, on Fehmarn. Lina Heydrich would not allow anything to be said against her husband. In 1962 she wrote to a Dutch historian: Why is it so important today? Why do discussed? Is it so unusual that my husband is absolute, that he utterly is. I ask you, is a warlord brutal because many people die under his command? Why is sadism, brutality, perversion, read into those decisions which my husband dictated in the course of his duties and which perhaps in his eyes were an unavoidable political necessity of State? We have all become accustomed to judge the decisions of those times from today’s warm bed. In 1965 she told a Dutch newspaper reporter Reinhard had not been anti-jewish. Reinhard had nothing against the Jews and he had nothing to do with the campaign against them. National Socialism was the solution to all our problems and the Führer was a fantastic man, he was charming, courteous and very intelligent.She was buried in the family vault marked Family grave von Osten, ‘Lina Manninen, widow of Heydrich, nee von Osten, 1911 – 1985. Rumour on the island has it that the vault also contains the remains of Reinhard Heydrich disinterred by SS men and brought to Fehmarn.

    The fact that ϟϟ-Obergruppenführer Reinhard Heydrich was the only German Commander to be singled out by the Allies to be shot and the necessity of the continued assassination of his character ‘speaks’ volumes about him.
