724 words - 3 pages

Heimlich Himmler was one of the main responsible persons for the holocaust. He was born in Munich on October 7, 1900 to a Roman Catholic middle-class family. His father was a teacher and his mother was a devout Roman Catholic. He had two brothers, Gebhard and Ernst. Heimlich was a good student, but struggled in athletics. He had poor health with lifelong stomach complaints as a child.

In 1915, Himmler began training with the Landshut Cadet Corps. He was accepted as an officer candidate due to his father’s connections with the royal family. He was eventually promoted to lieutenant. While he was still in training in November 1918, World War I ended with German’s defeat. He was never able to become an officer or see combat. He returned to Landshut.
