4 Walter Dornberger, "V2" (London and New York, 1954), quoted by Edward Crankshaw, The Gestapo. The Englishman Stephen H. Roberts described Himmler as

'a man of exquisite courtesy and still interested in the simple things of life. He has none of the pose of those Nazis who act as demigods . . . No man looks less like his job than this police dictator of Germany...' (quoted by Arendt, Origins of Totalitarianism).
From Chapter 9, Heinrich Himmler , Part 2 of The Face Of The Third Reich by J.C. Fest -- See further Notes
