Frases Heinrich Himmler
„La mayoría de ustedes saben lo que significa cuando un centenar de cadáveres yacen lado a lado, o 500, o mil. Para que se sacó, y al mismo tiempo - salvo excepciones provocadas por la debilidad humana - para seguir siendo personas decentes, eso es lo que nos ha hecho duros. Esta es una página de gloria en nuestra historia, que nunca se ha escrito y nunca se ha escrito.... Teníamos el derecho moral, que tenía el deber de nuestro pueblo, para destruir a este pueblo, que querían destruir.“
„No vamos a perder mucho tiempo en los Judios. Es muy bueno para poder familiarizarse con la raza judía en el pasado. Cuanto más que morir, mejor, golpeándolos representa una victoria para nuestro Reich. Los Judios debe sentir que hemos llegado. Queremos poner a la mitad y tres cuartas partes de todos los Judios del Vístula. Vamos a aplastar a los Judios siempre que podamos. Todo está en juego. Obtener los Judios fuera del Reich, de Viena, en todas partes. No tenemos necesidad de Judios en el Reich. Es probable que la línea del Vístula, detrás de esta línea no más. Nosotros somos el pueblo más importante aquí.“
„It is a war of ideologies and struggle races. On one side stands National Socialism: ideology, founded on the values of our Germanic, Nordic blood. It is worth the world as we want to see: beautiful, orderly, fair, socially, a world that may be, still suffers some flaws, but overall a happy, beautiful world filled with culture, which is precisely Germany. On the other side stands the 180 millionth people, a mixture of races and peoples, whose names are unpronounceable, and whose physical nature is such that the only thing that they can do - is to shoot without pity or mercy. These animals, which are subjected to torture and ill-treatment of each prisoner from our side, which do not have medical care they captured our wounded, as do the decent men, you will see them for yourself. These people have joined a Jewish religion, one ideology, called Bolshevism, with the task of: having now Russian, half [located] in Asia, parts of Europe, crush Germany and the world. When you, my friends, are fighting in the East, you keep that same fight against the same subhumans, against the same inferior races that once appeared under the name of Huns, and later - 1,000 years ago during the time of King Henry and Otto I, - the name of the Hungarians, and later under the name of Tatars, and then they came again under the name of Genghis Khan and the Mongols. Today they are called Russian under the political banner of Bolshevism.“

Heinrich Himmler speaking in Stettin to soldiers of the SS (13 July 1941)
„One basic principle must be the absolute rule for the S. S. men. We must be honest, decent, loyal, and comradely to members of our own blood and nobody else. What happens to a Russian and a Czech does not interest me in the least. What the nations can offer in the way of good blood of our type we will take, if necessary by kidnapping their children and raising them here with us. Whether nations live in prosperity or starve to death interests me only in so far as we need them as slaves for our culture: otherwise it is of no interest to me. Whether ten thousand Russian females fall down from exhaustion while digging an anti-tank ditch interests me only in so far as the anti-tank ditch for Germany is finished. We shall never be tough and heartless where it is not necessary, that is clear. We, Germans, who are the only people in the world who have a decent attitude towards animals, will also assume a decent attitude towards these human animals. But it is a crime against our blood to worry about them and give them ideals, thus causing our sons and grandsons to have a more difficult time with them. When somebody comes up to me and says: 'I cannot dig the anti-tank ditch with women and children, it is inhuman, for it would kill them,' then I have to say: 'You are the murderer of your own blood, because if the anti-tank ditch is not dug German soldiers will die, and they are the sons of German mothers. They are our own blood....' Our concern, our duty, is our people and our blood. We can be indifferent to everything else. I wish the S. S. to adopt this attitude towards the problem of all foreign, non-Germanic peoples, especially Russians....“

The Posen speech to SS officers (6 October 1943)
„Some information and observations of recent date have led me to draw up plans that I would like to bring to your attention. This concerns Jehovah’s Witnesses.. . . How are we going to govern and pacify Russia when. . . we will have conquered vast areas of its territory?. . . All forms of religion and the pacifist sects must be supported . . . , among all the others the beliefs of Jehovah’s Witnesses. It is well-known that the latter have characteristics incredibly positive for us: Apart from the fact that they refuse military service and anything to do with war . . . , they are incredibly reliable, do not drink, do not smoke; they are relentless workers and of rare honesty. For them the spoken word stands. These are ideal characteristics . . . , enviable qualities.“
