Heinrich Luitpold Himmler was Reichsführer of the Schutzstaffel and a leading member of the Nazi Party of Germany. He saw over all internal and external police forces, including the Gestapo. Himmler was seen as one of the most powerful in all of Nazi Germany. As overseer of the Einsatzgruppen task forces, Himmler coordinated the killing nearly six million Jews, and 11 million members of other minorities the Nazis considered "sub-human". Shortly before the end of the Second World War, he offered to surrender both Germany and himself to the Allies if he were spared. After being arrested by Allied forces, he committed suicide before he could be questioned.

Hellboy Edit

While Heinrich Himmler does not ever appear in person in Hellboy comics, he is very often mentioned as being a key member or leader of various Nazi 'Doomsday projects', such as Project Ragna Rok, or the Nazi space program. Hans Ubler's Chamber of Horrors, in Berlin, was very popular with Himmler's inner circle of mystics and scientists.

During the Seed of Destruction story arc it is revealed that Himmler first introduced Grigori Rasputin into Germany.
