Heinrich Luitpold Himmler was a leading member of the Nazi Party, commander of the Gestapo and Reichsführer of the Schutzstaffel. He also served as the right-hand man of Nazi leader Adolf Hitler until 1945.


Heinrich Himmler was one of the most powerful men in Adolf Hitler's entourage. Castle Wewelsburg was Himmler's SS training school which was attended by Helmut von Mephisto.[1]

At some point, Joseph Goebbels brought in Himmler and his SS to assist agents in an operation without Hitler's knowledge to acquire an Imperial Fasces from the time of Julius Caesar to keep it out of the hands of Benito Mussolini.[2]

After hiring Indiana Jones to find the Ark of the Covenant in 1936, US Army Intelligence major Eaton provided information on prominent Nazis which included Himmler. He made reference to Himmler's anti-semitism and word that the man held delusions of being tenth-century German king Heinrich I.[3]

Himmler was present with Hitler at the Berlin book-burning rally at the Institute of Aryan Culture in 1938 where Indiana Jones was attempting to retrieve his father's Grail Diary.[4]

Behind the scenesEdit

Heinrich Himmler was played uncredited by the late Ronald Lacey in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Lacey had previously played Gestapo agent Arnold Ernst Toht in Raiders of the Lost Ark.
