Himmler and other SS officials visiting a concentration camp in Mauthausen. Unlike Hitler, Himmler paid visits to such camps throughout the war period and guided the process of establishing extermination camps. It is said during one of his visits Himmler "turned green in the face" after brain matter from a executed Jew splattered on his coat. After that incident the Nazi's began to search for new ways to "deal" with Jews and thus the foundation of the infamous gas chambers.
