United Kingdom

 

Anthony Eden    1897-1977

 

 

In 1935

he became

foreign secretary

at the extraordinarily

early age of 38,

although he resigned

within three years,

in protest

at Neville Chamberlain's

appeasement policy

towards Germany.

 

While he always had

an awkward relationship

with that other prominent

anti-appeaser,

Winston Churchill,

the latter's elevation

to the premiership

in May 1940

restored Eden

to the Foreign Office.

 

In 1940-1945,

and again

in 1951-1955,

Eden was not only

Churchill's

foreign secretary,

but also his acknowledged

and uncontested successor

as leader

of the Conservative Party.

 

However,

he grew resentful

at Churchill's

refusal to step down

and by the time

he finally succeeded

Churchill in April 1955,

he was already suffering

from poor health.

By June 1941,

when Germany

invaded

the Soviet Union,

Himmler controlled

not only the police

but the political

administration

of the occupied territories

and, through

his control of the SS,

the concentration camp

system.

 

In 1943,

Hitler appointed Himmler

minister for the interior.

 

In this post

he oversaw

the 'Final Solution'

- the attempt

to exterminate

all the Jewish people

in Europe -

and administered

the system

of forced labour.

Heydrich

was Hitler's

right-hand man

and was tipped

to one day

succeed

the leader himself.

 

He was ruler

of the occupied

Czech Republic

and by 1942

he had killed hundreds

and was ferociously

stamping out

resistance.
