Chilling picture emerges of Nazi leader Himmler taken just moments after he swallowed cyanide pill

The moustache is gone but the familiar round glasses are still there in this chilling photograph of Heinrich Himmler seconds after he killed himself.

This is the first time this picture has been seen of the architect of the Holocaust, which claimed the lives of six million Jews, just after he crunched a cyanide capsule in his mouth.

The photograph, which is due to be auctioned, was taken by British intelligence officer Guy Adderleyin in May 1945.

Dishevelled Himmler, who had been arrested by the British, was due to be interrogated by intelligence chiefs over his war crimes the following day.
