The Homosexual Threat to Civilization: A Speech by Heinrich Himmler Hermann Hitzinger (ed.)— A 1938 speech by SS-Reichsführer Heinrich Himmler dealing with homosexuality and its long-term implications for society, reproduction rates, criminality, and history. Starting with a review of the extent of homosexuality in Germany before 1933, Himmler discusses how the SS dealt with internal cases of homosexuality—and how the ancient Germans dealt with it. Himmler points out that one of the drivers of homosexuality is the masculinization of women’s organizations, which reduces the differences between males and females, something which, he says, the NSDAP does not confront as diligently as the SS. 52 p-sc $10
