DESCRIPTION

Interesting letter written by Himmler in 1933, relating to a requested visit to a concentration camp.  In the letter, Himmler politely acknowledges receipt of the request, then says that he will allow Americans to visit "the camp" but that women would not be allowed.  Given Himmler's position as Political Police President of Bavaria, and given that Dachau, which was the only camp in Bavaria, opened on 22 March 1933, this is the camp being referred to.

Himmler also mentions that a visa for one Dr. Eliasberg will be sent to the addressee, a Mrs. Diehl.  It is not known who Diehl was, or who Eliasberg was.  The letter bears Himmler's actual signature.  Also included is a photograph of Himmler and others.  The photo bears a Nazi stamp on the reverse, and also a very old pricetag stamp from a store in the United States (50 cents).  This set was mounted archivally on matting, and is ready for framing.

Quite an interesting letter, suggesting that for some reason, a group of Americans were given permission to enter a camp, presumably Dachau, just after it opened.
