Himmler's crystal skull found in Germany
UPI.com ^ | 03-10-2011 | Staff

BERLIN, March 10 (UPI) -- A Swiss journalist said a crystal skull believed to have belonged to Nazi SS chief Heinrich Himmler was found hidden in a German home on a roof beam in the home of a woman who was once married to a high-ranking SS officer appears to be one of a series of skulls revered by the Mayans in ancient Mexico, The Daily Mirror reported Thursday.

Himmler, who committed suicide after being captured by British troops during World War II was well-known to have been fascinated by myths and legends during his tenure as one of the highest ranking Nazis under Adolf Hitler. Burgin said the skull, which weighs about 20 pounds, is similar in appearance to the death's head on the uniforms of Himmler's men. "I am 99 percent sure that this is one of the skulls of the Mayans, but we need clarity and al available tests will be carried out to ascertain authenticity," Burgin said.

OMG. My Aunt Rosie,who was a HitlerYouth, blamed all the Nazi sins on Himmler. Hitler was only trying to help the German people of course.

I always hate it when they do not put a picture of the artifact with the story. Just a pet peeve.

I am sure valuable things from WW2 will be popping up for years to come.

Don't believe any of those crystal skulls have been authenticated.

Some historians actually claim that Himmler was the actual brains of the Nazi regime, Hilter was just a front man.

Years ago I read a book about the Mitchell-Hedges crystal skull and if I remember correctly, they mentioned that there were some crystal skulls that had been manufactured in germany back in the 1800s. The author was comparing the Mitchell-Hedges skull with the german ones to illustrate the superiority (crystal quality, anatomical accuracy, etc.) of the former.

Aren’t there supposed to be a certain number of crystal skulls, and if you find them all it will unleash the power of the universe or something?

Himmler's real skull is buried somewhere on Luneberg Heath. The only person who knew where was the British sergeant who buried him.

The crystal skull probably has more brains than Himmler.

I always confuse the top Nazis except for Hitler and Goering. Which one was probably a Soviet spy? was it Bormann?

Lucky they found it on the beam. Those crystal skulls have a way of levitating and floating away before anybody can get their hands on them. As if they had a mind of their own....then their eyes begin to glow....

The usual suspects [in order of likelihood] are Bormann and Heinrich Mueller, head of the Gestapo. Since Bormann’s remains were found in Berlin in the early 70s, and the bones in Mueller’s grave are from four different bodies, none of them likely to be Mueller’s, he’s the more likely candidate.

Now Heydrich’s an interesting character. Olympic class fencer, concert level violinist, fighter pilot [Me 110s] who flew in Norway and the USSR [where he was shot down], workable to fluent in seven languages, and the most amoral bastard in the Reich. He was the brains behind Himmler.

“... if you find them all it will unleash the power of the universe...?”

I do remember something like that on a t.v. show that I saw about the crystal skulls. They are suppose to be one piece not several put together and you can feel “vibrations” from it. Either way, it looks pretty cool.

Yep. Chaired the Wansee conference. Planned and oversaw the phony attack on the Gleiwitz Radio station used as a pretext to start the war. Oversaw the kidnapping of Payne and Best at Venlo. Was the Reichs Protector of Bohemia-Moravia [Czechoslavakia] until assasinated in May [died in June] 1942. Death led to the eradication of Lidice, and the deaths of thousands in Prague.

Holocaust actions in 1942-1943 named “Aktion Reinhard” in his “honor”.

He had Jewish blood, and everybody knew it, but since he was so effective, and Hitler liked him so much, he was untouchable, but Himmler sure didn't shed any tears after his assassination.

So you’re saying that the arguably most powerful man in the world at the time was just a puppet of someone?
