According to his personal recollections, Hitler’s number two bit on a cyanide capsule and dropped down dead.
And while Himmler’s final words are widely believed to have been: ‘I am Heinrich Himmler’, according to the diaries he laughed in the face of a young officer before swallowing the pill.
Unbeknown to the British, Himmler was among the German soldiers captured after the Nazi surrender – disguised in a sergeant’s uniform with a patch over one eye.
But his ruse was blown by his own shocked comrades who immediately informed their British captors of Himmler’s presence.
