Gerwarth doesn't believe that Heydrich -- this man who inspired such fear among his subordinates that they followed his every order without question -- was born what Swiss diplomat Carl J. Burckhardt called a "young, evil god of death." He also feels this view was popular in postwar Germany because it made it easier for others to shift their own guilt onto the conveniently dead Heydrich. Here, Heydrich (right) is seen with Heinrich Himmler, the man who gave Heydrich his first job within the Nazi's intelligence apparatus.
