The Decent One

A documentary that uses a cache of letters, diaries and documents to reveal the life of SS-leader Heinrich Himmler.


Through previously undiscovered private letters, photos and diaries that were found in the Himmler family house in 1945, the ‘The Decent One’ exposes a unique and at times uncomfortable access to the life and mind of the merciless ‘Architect of the Final Solution’ Heinrich Himmler.
