Even then, he just acted even worse than before, not changing for the better but for the worse.

Griffin had almost personally witnessed the murdering of a homosexual man in Maine, and Himmler’s orders had killed Heinz. Before the two men were murdered, they both were in anguish over their lovers. These two homosexual men also share the same pasts in a way because they had similar lives of being homosexual, losing a lover, and being murdered. Although it was Himmler’s command and notion to capture and kill thousands of Jews and homosexuals, he “did not like to watch the suffering of his own prisoners” (256). This juxtaposition is powerful because it meant that he did not wish to witness the consequences of his decisions and refused to accept responsibility for the deaths that he had caused.
