A Straight Look at the Second World War

WHAT FOLLOWS IS AN ATTEMPT to set the historical record straight, without influence from the powers that be. By this phrase, I do not exclude the influence and power of organized Jewry, which is heavily involved in the sad history of the Aryan West. Further, I believe that liberals who do not recognize this influence are a part, knowing it or not, of the cosmopolitan array dedicated to exterminating our race forever.(1)
It is now 67 years after the holocaust known as World War II. Perhaps it is time to look at it truthfully. America is in big trouble. The unpayable national debt is only a small part of it. Fact is, the white world is in big trouble. Not only America, but Europe—the homeland of the white race—is facing mortal danger. It’s life or death for the white race—the race that for all its faults created Western civilization.(2)
The so-called victors of World War II won that costly struggle for the survival of Stalinist Russia and killed the very movement in Europe that was specifically dedicated to—and was accomplishing—the destruction of Communist Russia—the National Socialist movement created and led by Adolf Hitler.
Worse, the Allies—Roosevelt, Churchill and Stalin then proceeded to perpetrate crimes upon the survivors unparalleled in Europe since Genghis Khan. Probably 3 million innocent Europeans perished from torture, murder, exposure and starvation after the hostilities ended.(3)
These atrocities were directed by the Allied supreme commander, Dwight Eisenhower, a protégé of financier Bernard Baruch,(4) known at the time as “king of the Jews.” It was Baruch who influenced Roosevelt to promote Eisenhower, a desk bureaucrat who had never seen combat, over the heads of 1,109 officers superior to him in experience, competence and seniority to take supreme command of the hostilities. Ike’s superior was in fact not FDR but the “king of the Jews.”
At least 55 million people were killed in Europe in this war, not counting at least 60 million who were killed by the Communists for political or racial reasons in the Soviet Union before and during WWII. This number includes the gifted and handsome Russian aristocracy. Of these martyrs, almost all were non-Jewish Aryan.(5)
The Allied supreme commander, Eisenhower, illegally crowded a million captured German soldiers into open fields surrounded by barbwire in subfreezing weather. Without shelter, without food, without even toilet facilities, they died in misery. Civilians who tried to feed them were shot, on direct orders from Ike.
Of course, Wehrmacht soldiers who surrendered to the Russians fared as badly—most died in Siberia or were tortured. The Soviet Union never signed the Geneva Conventions. See Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s Gulag Archipelago.
James Bacque, in his Other Losses, documents this horror with the appalling facts. Giles MacDonogh—heavily prejudiced against Germans—cannot deny what happened in his After the Reich: The Brutal History of the Allied Occupation. Dr. Austin App has written more than one short booklet about American atrocities visited upon helpless German civilians. (See bibliography at end of article.)
Edward L. van Roden served in World War II as chief of the Military Justice Division for the European theater. Van Roden was appointed in 1948 to an extraordinary commission charged with investigating the claims of abuse during U.S. trials in Germany. Here is an excerpt of what van Roden wrote:
American investigators at the U.S. court in Dachau, Germany used the following methods to obtain confessions: Beatings and brutal kickings. Knocking out teeth and breaking jaws. Mock trials. Solitary confinement. Posturing as priests. Very limited rations. Spiritual deprivation. Promises of acquittal…. We won the war, but some of us want to go on killing. That seems to me wicked…. The American prohibition of hearsay evidence had been suspended. Second-and third-hand testimony was admitted….
Lt. Perl of the prosecution pleaded that it was difficult to obtain complete evidence. Perl told the court. “We had a tough case to crack, and we had to use persuasive methods.” He admitted to the court that the persuasive methods included various “expedients including some violence and mock trials.” He further told the court that the cases rested on statements obtained by such methods.
The statements which were admitted as evidence were obtained from men who had first been kept in solitary confinement for three, four and five months. They were confined between four walls, with no windows and no opportunity of exercise. Two meals a day were shoved in to them through a slot in the door. They were not allowed to talk to anyone. They had no communication with their families or any minister or priest during that time….
Our investigators would put a black hood over the accused’s head and then punch him in the face with brass knuckles, kick him and beat him with rubber hoses. Many of the German defendants had teeth knocked out. Some had their jaws broken. All but two of the Germans, in the 139 cases we investigated, had been kicked in the testicles beyond repair. This was standard operating procedure with American investigators. Perl admitted use of mock trials and persuasive methods including violence and said the court was free to decide the weight to be attached to evidence thus received. But it all went in.
One 18-year-old defendant, after a series of beatings, was writing a statement being dictated to him. When they reached the 16th page, the boy was locked up for the night. In the early morning, Germans in nearby cells heard him muttering: “I will not utter another lie.” When the jailer came in later to get him to finish his false statement, he found the German hanging from a cell bar, dead. However, the statement that the German had hanged himself to escape signing was offered and received in evidence in the trial of the others.
One of the most remarkable persons in European history was born in the small town of Linz, Austria, on April 20, 1889. From boyhood his friends knew that he was special. His closest friend was August Kubizek, whose book The Young Hitler I Knew is a fount of information concerning this person, and it is highly recommended for interested parties.
Kubizek relates incidents where Hitler would—as if seeing visions—tell his friend how he intended to rebuild Linz and his architectural plans for the entire area.
Art was Hitler’s chosen calling and he supported himself before World War I in Vienna by selling his. A Texan, Billy Price, has published a book containing about a thousand of these interesting pencil sketches and watercolors.
Many of Hitler’s attributes are acknowledged, such as his incredible memory, his physical courage, his speaking ability, his ability to charm persons on a one-on-one basis and his political acumen.
What writers who are unfriendly do not wish to recognize, however, are his profound and detailed knowledge of history and historical personalities, his strong sense of fairness, his pronounced interest in art and architecture, his talent as a first-class military strategist, his idealism and his justified determination to redress the punitive Versailles Treaty that had crippled Germany after World War I.
In 1919, with the outbreak of war, Hitler enlisted in the German army and by so doing made the political statement that he detested the Austrian royal leadership and considered himself German.
Hitler’s military record is outstanding. This was before tactical commanders could use telephone or radio to issue orders or otherwise communicate to coordinate the army’s units. To get messages from commanders to commander required a soldier of uncommon dependability and courage. Hitler volunteered for this job and went through every major battle during that harrowing period, repeatedly going through the worst of the fighting. He was gassed in 1914 and wounded in the leg in 1916. These battles includeYpres (Oct. 14-17, 1914), Neure Chapelle (March 10-13, 1915), Arras (April 9 June 16, 1917), Passchendalle (July-Nov., 1917) and Somme (Oct. 1916).
In contrast, neither Roosevelt nor Churchill ever served a day in combat. Churchill was a newspaper reporter and was captured in South Africa in 1899 by Boers, but all he did was to hold up his arms and surrender.
After the war, the British blockaded Germany in order to starve to death as many Germans as possible. Realizing that only leadership could meet this mortal crisis, Hitler looked around for a political movement, a movement with capable leadership that he could support .After considerable effort, he found a fledgling party, the National Socialist German Workers Party (Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei; NSDAP). He joined as member No. 7. Meanwhile, at least 763,000 Germans were purposefully starved to death.
Soon, he discovered that he had a talent for public speaking and political leadership. The subsequent story of the growth of the NSDAP is fantastic. Before long, meetings at which Hitler spoke were attended by thousands. Communists—who were well organized—tried to break up the meetings and the outdoor rallies using brutal violence but the NS membership was always ready for these tactics and, in defending their right to exist, developed their own street army, the Sturmabteilung (SA).
Many German workingmen who had been beguiled by the well-financed Communists gravitated to the NSDAP with its strong message of nationalism and patriotism.
Britain’s traditional policy regarding the continent was “balance of power,” meaning that it would support the weaker nation or coalition on the mainland and play off the power combines against each other, thus freeing Britain to further aggrandize itself on the 17/20ths of the globe it then controlled.
In spite of these facts, Hitler had no animus against Britain, and he made it clear in his Mein Kampf as well as in many speeches and in his foreign policy that he wanted peace with this nation, whose Anglo-Saxon and Keltic peoples were so closely related to Germans. Let the British rule their empire on which the Sun never set and give him a free hand on the continent so that he could turn his attention to the vital job of keeping the Soviet Union at bay. Hitler knew that Stalin’s strategy was to conquer Europe (including the British Isles) and add it to the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR). Hitler was far too smart to entertain any idea of “conquering the world.” His motives, in other words, were good.
Hitler wanted peace, but his sin was that he recognized the corrosive, destructive influence of the Rothschild-Zionist-Jewish presence in Europe and tried to do something about it. In their eyes, this was intolerable, and the British declaration of war against Germany on Sept. 3, 1939 was the answer to the perceived problem.
Today there are few if any historians who do not agree that the Versailles Treaty imposed on Germany after World War I was extremely one-sided and practically guaranteed another war.
Following its traditional policy, on Sept. 3, 1939, England allied itself with Communist Russia and declared war on a Germany that did everything possible to avoid hostilities. Rothschild-Jewish pressure on England was irresistible. And while Roosevelt was promising America over and over again in his fireside chats, “I say to you again and again and again that your boys will not be sent to a foreign war,” he was scheming with Churchill to do precisely that.
Before the war, Jewish organizations—supported by the international press—screamed that Hitler was exterminating Jews by the millions. This is exactly what the Jews claimed during World War I, and they used the same number then: 6 million. [See The First Holocaust by Don Heddesheimer.]
Of course, this was a blatant lie. True, Hitler imprisoned some minorities who were opposed to his policies, including Communists and religious zealots, to avoid sabotage of the German war effort, exactly as FDR imprisoned the Japanese in camps across the United States.
The Big Lie of the so-called “Holocaust” has netted Jews not only billions of dollars in U.S. and German coin but additional billions in German goods, such as highly advanced submarines and weapons, not to mention a very valuable piece of real estate in Palestine plus the tearful sympathy of American and European media and politicians.
Hitler’s war aims were to defend Germany from England’s (and later, America’s) invasion and to exterminate Soviet Communism. He and the German foreign minister, von Ribbentrop, made every conceivable diplomatic effort to placate England, Hitler finally resorting to sending his deputy Rudolf Hess as a last-ditch effort for peace in the West. When Hess arrived in Britain in May 1941, Churchill refused to see him. Hess was locked up for the rest of the war and the rest of his life. Failing to die naturally, he was murdered by a British assassin in his cell in 1987 at Spandau Prison at the age of 92.
Why would America enter the European war when no interests of the country were remotely threatened? The simple answer is that the Roosevelt administration was heavily laden with Jews, as has been documented by Elizabeth Dilling in her books and newsletters of 1934 and later. And Roosevelt was guaranteed a third and fourth term.
Mrs. Dilling, a concert-level harpist, mother and socialite in Chicago, traveled to Russia in 1931 to see the great Communist experiment for herself. Deeply shocked by what she saw, and the conditions the people had to endure, she dedicated her life to exposing Communism, especially its influence in America. In 1936 she wrote The Roosevelt Red Record and Its Background, and in it listed over 100 extreme liberals/Communists in the Roosevelt administration, most of them Jewish.
Numerous times Hitler warned Britain that entering the hostilities would bankrupt England and cost it its empire. Hitler regarded the British Empire, like the Catholic Church, as an element of world stability. His words were lost in the Jewish cacophony for war. The Britons Oswald Moseley, John Amery, Arnold Leese and others made similar arguments directly to the British people.
Hitler’s far-seeing strategy was anathema to the lords of England as well as to the powerful Rothschild-Jewish entity that ruled the Bank of England and its separate enclave, the City of London, which most definitely is not that big metropolis on the Thames River but another entity entirely—the financial hub of the Rothschild world empire.
Meanwhile, for the most part, the American media was conditioning the public for war, to the extent of telling gullible taxpayers to draw their window shades at night so as to not permit light from the lights inside their houses to be seen and so guide Nazi bombers to them. Yes, we had blackouts in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
Fort Wayne was 4,000 miles from Germany, making a round trip of 8,000 miles—a feat impossible for any airplane of the day. But what citizen would bother to dispute the facts reported in their daily paper? Would the “free press” lie so blatantly?
Unfortunately, white Americans have a messianic complex and publicists can easily manipulate them into spending billions for crusades for everlasting peace if they support an internationalist foreign policy, so profitable for the war makers. Who wants to be called an isolationist? Thus, today we have troops in 135 countries around the globe interfering in the domestic affairs of people who wish to be left alone. This is worse than useless; it sows seeds of mistrust and hatred and manufactures terrorists and more war. But it also feeds the profits of corporations that manufacture tanks, guns, planes, ships and other war materiel. Bankers love war and debt financing, and war pays the salaries of thousands of bureaucrats who work in the Pentagon and offices around the globe.
There are at least 8,000 bureaucrats employed in the Pentagon. Many drive 200 miles each day to and from work. While the rest of America wallows in unemployment and recession, the Washington, D.C. area is prosperous. War and debt mean prosperity for millions, no matter that our bipartisan foreign policy is programmed for defeat and national bankruptcy.
FDR wanted a third and then a fourth term, and he knew the only way this could be accomplished would be to get America into war. As stated, with Churchill, he plotted exactly that.
Tyler Kent, an American citizen, was a code clerk stationed in London. He transmitted communications between Churchill and Roosevelt and was very alarmed, seeing that the two were plotting war. He kept copies, planning to give them to senators, such as Burton K. Wheeler, who were leaders in the effort to keep America out of war. His plan was discovered, and he was arrested by Churchill’s orders and illegally kept in a British jail without trial for the duration of the war. Nothing could be permitted to stand in the way of war.
Knowing that Hitler had no intention of attacking the U.S. or even England, Roosevelt adopted a devilish scheme: He would take “the back door to war” (the title of Dr. Charles Callan Tansill’s magnum opus) and get the Japanese to attack the U.S.
Japan needed oil, and the closest was in the South Pacific. FDR knew that was the pressure point to bend Japan to his will—to leave no other option to Japan but to attack the United States.
FDR’s scheme—with which Churchill was totally familiar—worked. Roosevelt knew that the Japanese would do almost anything to avoid war with the U.S. because American code breakers were monitoring all of Japan’s secret communications between Tokyo and their diplomats. Through its Ambassador Kichisaburo Nomura, Prince Konoye and Minister of Foreign Affairs Yosuke Matsuoka, Japan made every effort to ensure friendly relations with the U.S.
FDR knew well in advance that the Japanese would attack Pearl Harbor, and he cheerfully sacrificed the lives of 3,000 men, four battleships and much more, including the reputations of Adm. Husband Kimmel and Gen. Walter Short, who he criminally blamed for the attack, permitting his treason to go unknown and unpunished. As Roosevelt said, Dec. 7, 1941 is indeed “a day which will live in infamy”—Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s infamous treason.
Roosevelt knew that the American people were overwhelmingly opposed to war. His plan was not merely a contemptuous repudiation of the electorate, but done with full knowledge that the war would cost millions of American, German and other lives. But his unnatural lust for a third term seized him.
His partner in this crime was Winston Churchill, prime minister of Great Britain. In his sober moments, which were very few, Churchill was a master of words. Churchill loved war and killing for the sport of it.
By 1938, when he was 64 years old, Churchill had so lived beyond his means that his creditors prepared to foreclose on him. He was faced with the prospect of the forced sale of his luxurious country estate, Chartwell.
At this hour of crisis a dark and mysterious figure entered Churchill’s life. He was Henry Strakosch, a multimillionaire Jew who had acquired a fortune speculating in South African mining ventures after his family had migrated to that country from eastern Austria. Strakosch stepped forward and advanced Churchill a loan of 150,000 pounds sterling just in time to save his estate from the auctioneer. In the years that followed, Strakosch served as Churchill’s adviser and confidant but miraculously managed to avoid the spotlight of publicity, which thenceforth illuminated Churchill’s again-rising political career.
It must be said that hard thought was never Churchill’s forte because he was always either drunk or nearly so. Alcoholism was not the only eccentric characteristic of this strange man, who would often greet visitors stark naked. But Churchill, Roosevelt and Stalin were the warlords of World War II, and to them must go the primary responsibility for the results—the greatest disaster in the history of Europe and the white race.
Every time he was told that German bombers were en route, and even though he initiated the policy of bombing civilians, a policy Hitler abhorred, Churchill fled London.  The two leaders were both manifestly unfit for power. FDR was sick in body and mind, and Churchill was a sot.
British and American bombers carpeted German cities with millions of explosives and incendiary bombs. They made little effort to target railheads, factories, docks or military installations. They deliberately killed millions of civilians. The flames of a burning Hamburg were a mile high. According to David Irving, Dresden—an undefended art city—was totally destroyed along with at least 18,375 inhabitants, mostly children, women, and cripples, 16,130 were injured and 350,000 people made homeless; 35,000 were missing. No one knows how many of these were killed.
Such mass murder (genocide) is supposedly outlawed by the Geneva Convention, but that meant nothing to Roosevelt, Churchill and Stalin. In one leaflet headlined Kill, Soviet propagandist Ilya Ehrenburg incited Soviet soldiers to treat Germans as subhuman. The final paragraph concludes:
The Germans are not human beings. From now on the word German means to us the most terrible oath. From now on the word German strikes us to the quick. We shall not speak anymore. We shall not get excited. We shall kill. If you have not killed at least one German a day, you have wasted that day…
If you cannot kill your German with a bullet kill him with your bayonet. If there is calm on your part of the front, or if you are waiting for the fighting, kill a German in the meantime. If you leave a German alive, the German will hang a Russian and rape a Russian woman. If you kill one German, kill another there is nothing more amusing for us than a heap of German corpses. Do not count days, do not count kilometers. Count only the number of Germans killed by you.
Kill the German—that is your grandmother’s request. Kill the German—that is your child’s prayer. Kill the German—that is your motherland’s loud request. Do not miss. Kill.
The war that followed—as was World War I—must be seen as a civil war in the West; 8.5 million American, British and continental European troops were killed in WWI and 43 million in WWII. The civilian count in WWI is about 13 million and 38 million in WWII. The dysgenic effect of these needless wars is incalculable. Before birth control became feasible and popular, losses like this would be made up naturally by the high birth rate. But not today.
Many millions of white children of the dead have never been born. Their absence has to a large extent been made up by non-white immigrants into America and Europe, both legal and illegal, and the influx of nonwhites grows daily. No more is America a white, Aryan nation; in fact, today the dialog regarding immigration forbids the factor of race from even being mentioned in our Jewish-controlled media. The Marxist rule of political correctness is the norm.
Lenin, Stalin and the other (mostly Jewish) leaders in Communist Russia murdered some 60 million Russians, particularly the pro-Western Aryan aristocracy, symbolized by the Christian royal family of Czar Nicholas. Regardless of persons like Tom Brokaw (who refers to WWII as “the good war,” it was unnecessary, and all belligerents—Great Britain, America and Russia included lost. American Francis Yockey pointed out that to win a war, a power must gain resources, strength and prosperity. Since 1939, all three major powers who started and fought it have declined into a pit of escalating inflation, unpayable debt, national bankruptcy, loss of national character, the immigration of millions of aliens and a highly questionable future.
The mass killing of Germans and other Europeans has paved the way for the legal and illegal immigration of not only Muslims but black Africans, even to countries as far removed from Africa as Finland. This has vastly increased the welfare budget and crime. European cities that once were clean and orderly today are ridden with trash and derelicts. A former resident of London reports that the streets resemble those in Nairobi, Kenya. Manfred Roeder reports that the EU plans to bring to Europe some 60 million more black Africans. Any plan to halt this torrent to Europe of this plague is attacked by the media as “Hitlerism.”
To most Americans, war is an exciting game. They watch the suffering and the action safely on television, radio, newspapers and magazines with the “Tom Brokaws” exulting.
But what do they profit? Death, debt and the ever-tightening yoke of Jewish political and economic supremacy.
Any sensible white person, if aware at all of what is happening, has to acknowledge the truth. His race, which is responsible for Western civilization, is on the defensive and retreating before an army of racial and cultural aliens.
The racial crisis cannot be ignored further. Whites must brave the Bronx cheers and profanity from liberals and Jews and face the problem squarely or civilization is lost.
The future for the U.S. seems clear: The McCarran-Walter immigration law has been repealed and no more are immigrants let into America mainly from Europe. Today, America is taking in millions of non-whites from everywhere, legal and illegal. These invaders have no cultural or racial compatibility with the Aryan whites who founded, civilized and developed this continent. Without racial and cultural homogeneity, there can be no rational government in any country, only efforts to arbitrate among groups until the inevitable anarchy.
Is the future therefore hopeless? Is the white race doomed? Of course not, just the opposite. Today, whites are confronted with major difficulties, and that is good, not bad. The problems we have are a trumpet call to awaken. At last we have a challenge. It is literally life or death for our kind. Political liberalism is a thing of the past. Jewish influence is intolerable and must be quashed by whatever means. We mean to survive and that means only this: Unconditional defeat for our enemies and unconditional victory for the next phase of white aggrandizement.

  1. In whatever civilization they have lived for some 3,000 years, the Jews have always considered themselves separate and distinct from their host people. Their Talmud, as well as the Old Testament, is authority enough for this. Thus, historians and observers cannot logically consider them as an integral part of the community.
  2. Arthur Kemp’s classic March of the Titans: A History of the White Race is strongly recommended.

Web of Deceit: The Jewish Puppet Masters Behind World War II

Edited by Lasha Darkmoon




It was these three powerful individuals, the winners of WWII, who decided to carve up the world between them by manufacturing pretexts for a catastrophic world war that would claim 60-80 million lives, roughly 3 per cent of the world’s population, and reduce Germany to a wasteland of rubble. Behind them, lurking in the shadows, stood their Jewish Puppet Masters, egging them on and telling them exactly what they had to do.



Here are the highly toxic and politically incorrect views of four key diplomats who were close to the events leading up to World War II. Ponder them carefully and ask yourselves: Could they all have been mistaken?


Joseph P. Kennedy, US Ambassador to Britain during the years immediately preceding World War II, was the father of the famous American Kennedy dynasty. James Forrestal, the first US Secretary of Defense (1947-1949), quotes him as saying “Chamberlain [the British Prime Minister] stated that America and the world Jews had forced England into the war.” (The Forrestal Diaries, Cassell 1952, p.129).


Count Jerzy Potocki, the Polish Ambassador in Washington, in a report to the Polish Foreign Office in January 1939, is quoted approvingly by the highly respected British military historian Major-General JFC Fuller. Concerning public opinion in America, Count Potocki says:


Above all, propaganda here is entirely in Jewish hands. Their propaganda is so effective that people have no real knowledge of the true state of affairs in Europe. 


It is interesting to observe that in this carefully thought-out campaign no reference at all is made to Soviet Russia. If that country is mentioned, it is referred to in a friendly manner and people are given the impression that Soviet Russia is part of the democratic group of countries.


Jewry was able not only to establish a dangerous centre in the New World for the dissemination of hatred and enmity, but it also succeeded in dividing the world into two warlike camps. President Roosevelt has been given the power to create huge reserves in armaments for a future war which the Jews are deliberately heading for.”

— JFC Fuller, The Decisive Battles of the Western World, vol 3, pp 372-374.


Hugh Wilson, the American Ambassador in Berlin until 1938, the year before the war broke out, found anti-Semitism in Germany “understandable.” This was because before the advent of the Nazis “the stage, the press, medicine and law were crowded with Jews. Among the few with money to splurge, a high proportion were Jews. The leaders of the Bolshevist movement in Russia, a movement desperately feared in Germany, were Jews. One could feel the spreading resentment and hatred.” — Hugh Wilson, American diplomat, quoted in Leonard Mosley, Lindbergh, Hodder, 1976.


Sir Nevile Henderson, British Ambassador in Berlin “said further that the hostile attitude [toward Germany] in Great Britain was the work of Jews, which was what Hitler thought himself.” (AJP Taylor, The Origins of the Second World War, Penguin 1987, p. 324).


ANTI-SEMITIC CARTOON. “One could feel the spreading resentment and hatred.” — Hugh Wilson, American ambassador in Berlin, c.1938


Is this negative attitude toward international Jewry attributable to a groundless antisemitism—to a hatred of Jews for no valid or justifiable reason? A knowledge of the economic background to the war is necessary for a fuller understanding of this complex question.


At the end of the First World War, Germany was essentially tricked into paying massive reparations to France and other economic competitors and former belligerent countries by the terms of the iniquitous Treaty of Versailles, thanks to the meddling of liberal American President Woodrow Wilson, himself acting under Jewish advice. [See Paul Johnson, A History of the Modern World (1983), p.24; and H. Nicholson, Peacemaking, 1919 (1933), pp. 13-16]


Germany was declared to be solely responsible for the Great War of 1914-1918 in spite of the fact that “Germany did not plot a European war, did not want one, and made genuine efforts, though too belated, to avert one.” (Professor Sydney B. Fay, The Origins of the World War (Vol. 2, p. 552).


As a result of these massive enforced financial reparations made by the Versailles Treaty, by 1923 the situation in Germany became desperate. Inflation on an astronomical scale became the only way out for the government. Printing presses were engaged to print money around the clock. (See this picture). In 1921 the exchange rate was 75 marks to the dollar; by 1924, it  had become roughly 5 trillion marks to the dollar. This virtually destroyed the German middle classes, reducing any bank savings to a virtual zero. (See Arthur Koestler, The God that Failed, p. 28).


According to distinguished British historian Sir Arthur Bryant:

It was the Jews with their international affiliations and their hereditary flair for finance who were best able to seize such opportunities. They did so with such effect that, even in November 1938, after five years of anti-Semitic legislation and persecution, they still owned, according to the Times correspondent in Berlin, something like A THIRD OF THE PROPERTY IN THE REICH. Most of it came into their hands during the hyperinflation.


To those who had lost their all, this bewildering transfer seemed a monstrous injustice.




The Jews obtained a wonderful ascendancy in politics, business and the learned professions in spite of constituting LESS THAN ONE PERCENT OF THE POPULATION.


The banks, including the Reichsbank and the big private banks, were practically controlled by them. So were the publishing trade, the cinema, the theatres and a large part of the press—all the normal means, in fact, by which public opinion in a civilized country is formed. The largest newspaper combine in the country, with a daily circulation of four millions, was a Jewish monopoly.




At this time it was not the ‘Aryans’ who exercised racial discrimination. It was a discrimination that operated without violence. It was exercised by a minority against a majority. There was no persecution, only elimination. It was the contrast between the wealth enjoyed—and lavishly displayed—by aliens of cosmopolitan tastes, and the poverty and misery of native Germans, that has made anti-Semitism so dangerous and ugly a force in the new Europe.


Beggars on horseback are seldom popular, least of all with those whom they have just thrown out of the saddle.


— Sir Arthur Bryant, Unfinished Victory, 1940 pp. 136-144, emphasis added.

The caption to a famous anti-Semitic German cartoon headed sarcastically “The Land of Freedom”, referring to Germany under the Jewish heel, has a caption in German that translates as: “When one is ruled by the Jews, freedom is only an empty dream.” (See the 1939 cartoon here).

Strangely enough, a book unexpectedly published by Princeton University Press in 1984, Sarah Gordon’s Hitler, Germans and the “Jewish Question”, essentially confirms what Sir Arthur Bryant says above. Sarah Gordon, incidentally, is Jewish, so this is a rare example of a Jew actually admitting that anti-Semitism could have a rational basis:

“Jews were never a large percentage of the total German population; at no time did they exceed 1% of the population during the years 1871-1933.

Jews were over-represented in business, commerce, and public and private service. They were especially visible in private banking in Berlin, which in 1923 had 150 private Jewish banks, as opposed to only 11 private non-Jewish banks. They owned 41% of iron and scrap iron firms and 57% of other metal businesses. Jews were very active in the stock market, particularly in Berlin, where in 1928 they comprised 80% of the leading members of the stock exchange.

By 1933, when the Nazis began eliminating Jews from prominent positions, 85% of the brokers on the Berlin Stock exchange were dismissed because of their “race”. At least a quarter of full professors and instructors at German universities had Jewish origins. In 1905-6 Jewish students comprised 25% of the law and medical students. In 1931, 50% of the 234 theatre directors in Germany were Jewish, and in Berlin the number was 80%.

In 1929 it was estimated that the per capita income of Jews in Berlin was twice that of other Berlin residents.”


Arthur Koestler, also Jewish, confirms the Jewish over-involvement in German publishing:

“Ullstein’s was a kind of super-trust; the largest organization of its kind in Europe, and probably in the world. They published four daily papers in Berlin alone, among these the venerable Vossische Zeitung, founded in the eighteenth century, and the BZ am Mittag, an evening paper. Apart from these, Ullstein’s published more than a dozen weekly and monthly periodicals, ran their own news service, their own travel agency, and were one of the leading book publishers. The firm was owned by the brothers Ullstein: they were five, like the original Rothschild brothers, and like them also, they were Jews.”

— The God that Failed (1950), ed. R.H.S. Crossman, p. 31.


Edgar Mowrer, Berlin correspondent for the Chicago Daily News, wrote an anti-German tract called “Germany Puts the Clock Back”, published as a Penguin Special and reprinted five times between December 1937 and April 1938. He notes alarmingly:

“In the all-important administration of Prussia, any number of strategic positions came into the hands of Hebrews.




The Jews came in Germany to play in politics and administration that same considerable part that they had previously won by open competition in business, trade, banking, the Press, the arts, the sciences and the intellectual and cultural life of the country. And thereby the impression was strengthened that Germany, a country with a mission of its own, had fallen into the hands of foreigners.


No one who lived through the period from 1919 to 1926 is likely to forget the sexual promiscuity that prevailed. Throughout a town like Berlin, hotels and pensions made vast fortunes by letting rooms by the hour or day to baggageless, unregistered guests. Hundreds of cabarets, pleasure resorts and the like served for purposes of getting acquainted and acquiring the proper mood.”

(“Germany Puts The Clock Back”, pp. 153-4, emphasis added)


Sir Arthur Bryant, already quote above, describes throngs of child prostitutes outside the doors of the great Berlin hotels and restaurants. He adds “Most of them—the night clubs and vice resorts—were owned and managed by Jews. And it was the Jews among the promoters of this trade who were remembered in after years.” (pp. 144-5).

Douglas Reed, Chief Central European correspondent before WWII for the London Times, was profoundly anti-German and anti-Hitler. But nevertheless he reported:

“I watched the Brown Shirts going from shop to shop with paint pots and daubing on the window panes the word “Jew” in dripping red letters. The Kurfürstendamm was to me a revelation. I knew that Jews were prominent in business life, but I did not know that they almost monopolized important branches of it.


Germany had one Jew to one hundred gentiles, said the statistics; but the fashionable Kurfürstendamm, according to the dripping red legends, had about one gentile shop to ninety-nine Jewish ones.

— Douglas Reed, Insanity Fair (1938) p. 152-3, emphasis added.


In Reed’s book Disgrace Abounding (1939), he notes:

“In the Berlin (of the pre-Hitler years) most of the theatres were Jewish-owned or Jewish-leased, most of the leading film and stage actors were Jews, the plays performed were often by German, Austrian or Hungarian Jews and were staged by Jewish film producers, applauded by Jewish dramatic critics in Jewish newspapers…


The Jews are not cleverer than the Gentiles, if by clever you mean good at their jobs. They ruthlessly exploit the common feeling of Jews, first to get a foothold in a particular trade or calling, then to squeeze the non-Jews out of it. It is not true that Jews are better journalists than Gentiles. They held all the posts on those Berlin papers because the proprietors and editors were Jewish.”


(Douglas Reed, Disgrace Abounding, 1939, pp. 238-9).


Jewish writer Edwin Black gives a similar picture. “In Berlin alone,” he states, “about 75 percent of the attorneys and nearly as many of the doctors were Jewish.” (The Transfer Agreement (1984),  p. 58)

“I watched the Brown Shirts going from shop to shop with paint pots and daubing on the window panes the word JEW in dripping red letters.” — Douglas Reed, 1938.  Note that 99 out of 100 shops in the High Street were owned by Jews, and yet Jews made up less than one percent of the population.


To cap it all, Jews were perceived as dangerous enemies of Germany after Samuel Untermeyer, the leader of the World Jewish Economic Federation, declared war on Germany on August 6, 1933. (See Edwin Black, The Transfer Agreement: the Untold Story of the Secret Pact between the Third Reich and Palestine (1984), pp. 272-277). According to Black, “The one man who most embodied the potential death blow to Germany was Samuel Untermeyer” (p. 369).


This was the culmination of a worldwide boycott of German goods led by international Jewish organizations.


The London Daily Express on March 24, 1933 carried the headline “Judea Declares War on Germany”.  The boycott was particularly motivated by the German imposition of the Nuremberg Laws, which ironically were similar in intent and content to the Jewish cultural exclusivism practiced so visibly in present-day Israel. At a single stroke, this headline disproves the lie  that Germany initiated World War II. International Jewry is here clearly seen declaring war on Germany as early as 1933. It would take the Jews another six years to cajole their Anglo-American stooges to go to war on their behalf.


Next time you hear anyone claim falsely that “Germany started World War Two”, send them a copy of this headline picture from The Daily Express, dated March 24, 1933:




Hitler saw the tremendous danger posed to Germany by Communism. He appreciated the desperate need to eliminate this threat, a fact that earned him the immense hatred and animosity of the Jewish organisations and the media and politicians of the west which they could influence. After all, according to the Jewish writer Chaim Bermant, although Jews formed less than five percent of Russia’s population, they formed more than fifty percent of its revolutionaries. According to the Jewish writer Chaim Bermant in his book The Jews (1977, chapter 8):


“It must be added that most of the leading revolutionaries who convulsed Europe in the final decades of the last century and the first decades of this one, stemmed from prosperous Jewish families.. They were perhaps typified by the father of revolution, Karl Marx. Thus when, after the chaos of World War I, revolutions broke out all over Europe, Jews were everywhere at the helm: Trotsky, Sverdlov, Kamenev and Zinoviev in Russia; Bela Kun in Hungary; Kurt Eisner in Bavaria; and, most improbable of all, Rosa Luxemburg in Berlin.


To many outside observers, the Russian revolution looked like a Jewish conspiracy, especially when it was followed by Jewish-led revolutionary outbreaks in much of central Europe. The leadership of the Bolshevik Party had a preponderance of Jews. Of the seven members of the Politburo, the inner cabinet of the country, four, Trotsky (Bronstein), Zinoviev (Radomsky), Kamenev (Rosenfeld) and Sverdlov, were Jews.”


Other authors agree with this assessment , including Jewish historian Sarah Gordon, already cited once above:


There has been a tendency to circumvent or simply ignore the significant role of Jewish intellectuals in the German Communist Party, and thereby seriously neglect one of the genuine and objective reasons for increased anti-Semitism during and after World War 1….


The prominence of Jews in the revolution and early Weimar Republic is indisputable, and this was a very serious contributing cause for increased anti-Semitism in post-war years.


It is clear then that the stereotype of Jews as socialists and communists led many Germans to distrust the Jewish minority as a whole and to brand Jews as enemies of the German nation.”


— Sarah Gordon, Hitler, Germans and the ‘Jewish Question’, Princeton University Press (1984), p 23. (Emphasis added)


Martin Bernal in Back Athena (vol 1), pp.367-387 reinforces the above:


“The second paroxysm of strong anti-Semitism came after the critical role of Jews in International Communism and the Russian Revolution and during the economic crises of the 1920s and 30s. Anti-Semitism intensified throughout Europe and North America following the perceived and actual centrality of Jews in the Russian Revolution.. Such feelings were not restricted to Germany, or to vulgar extremists like the Nazis. All over Northern Europe and North America, anti-Semitism became the norm in ‘nice society’, and ‘nice society’ included the universities.”


Is it any wonder that Hitler, along with millions of others all over Europe, should join the growing ranks of the anti-Semites?


It is clear that the Jews were almost universally hated, not because they Jews, but because of their obnoxiously pushy behavior and the fact that they were in the forefront of dangerous revolutionaries dedicated to the downfall of their host countries. You cannot move into someone else’s house and take it over and expect to be loved by your victims.


—  §  —


Hitler came to power in Germany with two main aims, the rectification of the unjust provisions of the Versailles Treaty and the destruction of the Soviet/ Communist threat to Germany. Strangely enough, contrary to the mythology created by those who had an opposing ethnic agenda, he had no plans or desire for a larger war of conquest. Professor AJP Taylor proved this in his book The Origins of the Second World War, much to the annoyance of the professional court historians. Taylor says: “The state of German armament in 1939 gives the decisive proof that Hitler was not contemplating general war, and probably not intending war at all” (p.267). And again: “Even in 1939 the German army was not equipped for a prolonged war; in 1940 the German land forces were inferior to the French in everything except leadership” (p. 104-5).


British historian Basil Liddell Hart confirms this assessment. He writes: “Britain and France declared war on Germany, not the other way around. Hitler wanted peace with Britain, as the German generals admitted. (Basil Liddell Hart, The Other Side of the Hill, 1948, Pan Books 1983).


David Irving wraps it all up in the foreword to his book The Warpath (1978) where he refers to “the discovery that at no time did this man (Hitler) pose or  intend  a real threat to Britain or the Empire.”


I think all this proves, beyond any shadow of doubt, that the chief aggressors in World War II were the Anglo-Americans—as indeed they were arguably the chief aggressors in World War I and most of the wars that have plagued the world during the 20th century and up to the present time. As for the moneyed international Jews, these were demonstrably the Puppet Masters jerking the strings of the three great leaders of the Western World—Churchhill, Roosevelt and Stalin—who went to war at their behest and on their behalf.


It is not without significance that each of the legendary figures mentioned above has been accused at some time or other of enjoying exceptionally strong Jewish connections.


Of one thing we can be reasonably sure: whenever there is a major new war or revolution being planned which requires heavy financial backing—the Russian Revolution is a perfect example—the hidden hand of international Jewry is almost certain to be behind it. Partout où il y a de l’argent, il y a des Juifs, said Montesquieu. — “Wherever there is money, there you will find the Jew.”


And wherever there is war, the most profitable money spinning activity known to man, there also you are likely to find the Eternal Jew—Der Ewige Jude—counting his gold coins over a mound of corpses.


How Franklin Roosevelt Lied America Into War
William Henry Chamberlin

... American involvement in war with Germany was preceded by a long series of steps [by FDR, including] ... the orders to American warships to shoot at sight at German submarines, formally announced on September 11 [1941]. The beginning of actual hostilities may be dated from this time rather than from the German declaration of war, which followed Pearl Harbor ... The promises to "keep America out of foreign wars" were a deliberate hoax on the American people, perpetrated for the purpose of insuring Roosevelt's re-election and thereby enabling him to proceed with his plan of gradually edging the United States into war.
Life Magazine Prepares Americans for War 
Life magazine (1938)

Ten months before the outbreak of war in Europe, the most influential US illustrated weekly magazine was psychologically preparing Americans for war with alarmist claims that Germany threatened the United States. This major article in the October 31, 1938, issue of Life magazine, headlined "America Gets Ready to Fight Germany, Italy, Japan," told readers that Germany and Italy "covet ... the rich resources of South America," and warned that "fascist fleets and legions may swarm across the Atlantic." In fact, at the time Hitler and all other high-level German officials fervently sought to avoid any conflict with the US, Britain or France. But President Franklin Roosevelt was secretly pushing for war. In September 1939 Britain and France -- encouraged by the US -- declared war against Germany.

                              Adolf Hitler: My Political Testament (Berlin, 29 April 1945)


Since 1914, when as a volunteer, I made my modest contribution in the World War which was forced upon the Reich, over thirty years have passed.


In these three decades, only love for my people and loyalty to my people have guided me in all my thoughts, actions, and life. They gave me the strength to make the most difficult decisions, such as no mortal has yet had to face. I have exhausted my time, my working energy, and my health in these three decades.


It is untrue that I or anybody else in Germany wanted war in 1939. It was desired and instigated exclusively by those international statesmen who were either of Jewish origin or working for Jewish interests. I have made so many offers for the reduction and elimination of armaments, which posterity cannot explain away for all eternity, that the responsibility for the outbreak of this war cannot rest on me. Furthermore, I never desired that after the first terrible World War a second war should arise against England or even against America. Centuries may pass, but out of the ruins of our cities and monuments of art there will arise anew the hatred for the people who alone are ultimately responsible: International Jewry and its helpers!


As late as three days before the outbreak of the German-Polish War, I proposed to the British Ambassador in Berlin a solution for the German-Polish problem -- similar to the problem of the Saar area, under international control. This offer cannot be explained away, either. It was only rejected because the responsible circles in English politics wanted the war, partly in the expectation of business advantages, partly driven by propaganda promoted by international Jewry.

But I left no doubt about the fact that if the peoples of Europe were again only regarded as so many packages of stock shares by these international money and finance conspirators, then that race, too, which is the truly guilty party in this murderous struggle would also have to be held to account: the Jews! I further left no doubt that this time we would not permit millions of European children of Aryan descent to die of hunger, nor millions of grown-up men to suffer death, nor hundreds of thousands of women and children to be burned and bombed to death in their cities, without the truly guilty party having to atone for its guilt, even if through more humane means.


After six years of struggle, which in spite of all reverses will go down in history as the most glorious and most courageous manifestation of a people's will to live. I cannot separate myself from the city which is the capital of this Reich. Because our forces are too few to permit any further resistance against the enemy's assaults, and because individual resistance is rendered valueless by blinded and characterless scoundrels, I desire to share the fate that millions of others have taken upon themselves, in that I shall remain in this city. Furthermore, I do not want to fall into the hands of enemies who for the delectation of the hate-riddled masses require a new spectacle promoted by the Jews.


I have therefore resolved to remain in Berlin and there to choose death of my own will at the very moment when, as I believe, the seat of the Fuehrer and Chancellor can no longer be defended. I die with a joyful heart in the awareness the immeasurable deeds and achievements of our soldiers at the front, of our women at home, the achievements of our peasants and workers, and the contribution, unique in history, of our youth, which bears my name.


It goes without saying that I thank them all from the bottom of my heart and that it is also my desire that in spite of everything they should not give up the struggle, but continue fighting wherever they may be, faithful to the great Clausewitz, against the enemies of the Fatherland. From the sacrifices of our soldiers and from my own comradeship with them, there will come in one way or another into German history the seed of a brilliant renaissance of the National Socialist movement and thus the realization of a true national community.


Many very brave men and women have resolved to link their lives to mine to the very end. I have requested them, and finally ordered them, not to do so, but instead to take part in the continuing struggle of the nation. I ask the commanders of the army, navy, and air force to strengthen by all possible means the spirit of resistance of our soldiers in the spirit of National Socialism, emphasizing especially that I too, as founder and creator of this movement, have preferred death to cowardly flight or even capitulation.


May it be one day a part of the code of honor; as it is already in the navy, that the surrender of an area or of a town is impossible, and above all in this respect the leaders should give a shining example of faithful devotion to duty unto death.


Several brave men have joined me by their own free will and do not wish to leave the capital of the Reich under any circumstances, but on the contrary are willing to perish with me here. Yet I must ask them to obey my request, and in this instance place the interests of the nation above their own feelings.


Through their work and loyalty they will remain just as close to me as companions after my death, just as I hope that my spirit will remain amongst them and will always accompany them. Let them be hard, but never unjust; above all, let them never allow fear to counsel their actions, but may they place the honor of the nation above everything on this earth. Finally, may they be conscious of the fact that our task of building a National Socialist state represents the labor of the coming centuries, and this places every single person under an obligation always to serve the common interest and to subordinate his own interests. I demand of all Germans, all National Socialists, men and women and all soldiers of the Armed Forces, that they remain faithful and obedient to the new government and to their President unto death.


Above all, I charge the leadership of the nation and their followers with the strict observance of the racial laws and with merciless resistance against the universal poisoners of all peoples, international Jewry.


Given at Berlin, 29 April 1945, 4 AM.

(Stolen from Germany after World War I)


The August 28th headline of the Hitler-hating New York Times confirmed that Hitler sought to avoid war with Britain & France.




 The “free city” of Danzig is 95% German. Along with its surrounding German area of East Prussia, Danzig was isolated from the German mainland by the harsh post-World War I treaties. Formerly German territory now belongs to Poland, cutting right through the Prussian/Pomeranian region of Germany. As had been the case with Germans stranded in Czechoslovakia, the Germans in Poland (those not expelled in 1919) are a persecuted minority.

Hitler tries to solve the problem of the "Polish Corridor” peacefully. He proposes that the people living in Danzig, and the “corridor” be permitted to vote in a referendum to decide their status. If the region returns to German sovereignty, Poland will be given a 1 mile wide path, running through Germany to the Baltic Sea so that it would not be landlocked.  

The Poles consider Hitler’s solution, but behind the scenes, Poland is urged by FDR to not make any deals with Germany. When it becomes apparent to Hitler that Poland will not allow a referendum, he then proposes another solution – international control of the formerly German regions. This sensible offer is also ignored. The Globalists intend to use foolish Poland as the match which ignites World War II.

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/b/b0/Polish_Corridor.PNG http://group17.finaldispatch.com/wp-content/blogs.dir/3/files/danzig/danzig.jpg

Germans stranded in the stolen 'corridor' and the "free city" of Danzig were abused and denied the right to self-determination.



AUGUST 25, 1939


The Polish-British Common Defense Pact contains promises of British military assistance in the event that Poland is attacked by another European country. This builds upon a previous agreement (March 1939) between the two countries, and also France, by specifically committing to military action in the event of an attack.

With this agreement, powerful Zionist-Globalist forces in the UK have now trapped the reluctant Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, as well as France and Poland. All that is left to do now is for Polish-Jewish border thugs to deliberately provoke Germany into action and get the ball rolling.


NevilleChamberlain.jpg  photo 0331-polishguarantee1.jpg

The British-Polish Common Defense past was forced upon Neville Chamberlain.

AUGUST 31, 1939




Overestimating their strength, underestimating German strength, and knowing that France and the UK would now be forced to back them, Polish-Jewish terrorists cross the border and attack a German radio station in Silesia, Germany. It is actually the latest in a string of deliberate border instigations against Germany.

The "Poles" then broadcast a message (in Polish) urging others to take up arms and start attacking Germans. German police quickly arrive and retake the station, killing one of the Red terrorists. Jewish Red terrorists, their Polish government protectors, and their Globalist-Zionist masters have picked a fight with Germany! 

Modern historians claim that the Gleiwitz incident was staged by Germans dressed as Polish terrorists. But as is the case with the Reichstag Fire conspiracy theory, they offer no evidence, (beyond a forced “confession” obtained after the war) to support this theory – a theory that ignores the outrageous and repeated pattern of provocations directed at Hitler's Germany ever since 1933, the numerous border incidents, and also Hitler’s sincere attempts to negotiate a fair resolution to the Corridor and Danzig controversies.


gliwic002.jpg http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_hntojuBOgo0/SOfcKpsay5I/AAAAAAAADms/hLXxl0pCLKM/s400/JewishPartisans.gif

Soon after broadcasting a call to kill Germans, Polish-Jewish partisans, with the blessing of the Polish government, kicked off the war between Poland and Germany.






"I lived in Germany during the 1980's when many people who lived during the war were still alive. I sought out anyone who lived near Poland in 1939 and was lucky enough to meet several people. One was a customs official who said it was so bad on the border they were armed and also had grenades in their office ready for attacks. Another told me his farm animals were often stolen by Polish (Jewish?) terrorists. Another told of his niece being raped by a Pole (Jew?) who crossed the border. He told me in 1940 they caught the man and showed me a copy of the death order signed by Heydrich, in which he ordered the man put to death.

 This is just one of many stories told to me by German civilians who witnessed these border incursions just like had happened in 1919-1928. One thing many people fail to see is that Poland openly attacked Germany right after World War I, which led to many border battles. Once Germany started pressing Poland to work out a solution to the corridor, the attacks started again. .And one thing that is clear to me is that Germany did not make up these attacks."

SEPTEMBER 17, 1939


With the Polish army being routed by the advancing Germans in the west, Stalin cleverly decides to break the Soviet-Polish Non Aggression Pact of 1932. Poland is stabbed in the back as Soviet forces pour in from the east. The advancing Reds carry out massacres, the most infamous being the Katyn Forest Massacre in which 10,000 Polish Army officers are shot in the head. 

Other than the pre-Versailles German areas which Germany will reclaim, the Soviets will take.all of Poland. In a shocking double-standard, the anti-German Globo-Zio press, FDR, France & the UK remain oddly silent about this brutal Soviet aggression.

Poland appeals to Britain for help, citing the Poland-British Defense Pact just signed a few weeks ago! The Polish ambassador in London contacts the British Foreign Office pointing out that clause 1(b) of the agreement, which concerned an "aggression by a European power" on Poland, should apply to the Soviet invasion. The UK Foreign Secretary responds with hostility, stating that it was Britain's decision whether to declare war on the Soviet Union!

The truth is, the Allies don't give a rat's ass about Poland. They only used its foolish ultra-nationalist leaders to instigate Hitler so that they could have their war.  The horror that Poland will suffer under Soviet occupation is Poland's problem, not Britain's!
3332.jpg http://news.bbc.co.uk/nol/shared/bsp/hi/dhtml_slides/09/german_invasion_of_poland/img/slide_3.gif
The Soviets executed 10,000 Polish Army officers at Katyn Forest. They would later try to blame it on the Germans.

SEPTEMBER 17, 1939


Within a few weeks, the German-Polish War is already over. Hitler receives a hero’s welcome upon his arrival in liberated Danzig. Hitler addresses the Danzig crowd:

“No power on earth would have borne this     condition as long as Germany. I do not know what England would have said about a similar peace solution (Versailles) at its expense or how America or France would have accepted it.

 I attempted to find a tolerable solution - even for this problem. I submitted this attempt to the Polish rulers in the form of verbal proposals. .You know these proposals. They were more than moderate. I do not know what mental condition the Polish Government was in when it refused these proposals. …….As an answer, Poland gave the order for the first mobilization. Thereupon wild terror was initiated, and my request to the Polish Foreign Minister to visit me in Berlin once more to discuss these questions was refused. Instead of going to Berlin, he went to London.”

Hitler receives a hero's welsome in Danzig

OCTOBER 1939 - MAY 1940



The German-Polish War has ended quickly. There is nothing that the Allies can do help their Polish puppet. The French actually invade Germany on September 7th, advancing 8 km before stopping.  The quiet period between the end of the Polish war until May 1940, is dubbed by a US Senator as "The Phony War."   

During this time, Hitler pleads for the Allies to withdraw their war declarations. Towards France he declares: ."I have always expressed to France my desire to bury forever our ancient enmity and bring together these two nations, both of which have such glorious pasts." 

To the British, Hitler says: “I have devoted no less effort to the achievement of Anglo-German friendship. At no time and in no place have I ever acted contrary to British interests….Why should this war in the West be fought?”

Hitler’s pleas for peace are ignored as the allies amass 600,000 troops in Northern France! Plans are openly discussed to advance eastward upon Germany, via Belgium and Holland, as well as establishing operations in neutral Norway and Denmark, with or without their consent.
















As Hitler continues to plead for peace, the British government deploys its army and frightens its people.



Stalin's War Against His Own Troops

The Tragic Fate of Soviet Prisoners of War in German Captivity

By Yuri Teplyakov


At dawn on June 22, 1941, began the mightiest military offensive in history: the German-led Axis attack against the Soviet Union. During the first 18 months of the campaign, about three million Soviet soldiers were taken prisoner. By the end of the conflict four years later, more than five million Soviet troops are estimated to have fallen into German hands. Most of these unfortunate men died in German captivity.


A major reason for this was the unusual nature of the war on the eastern front, particularly during the first year -- June 1941-June 1942 -- when vastly greater numbers of prisoners fell into German hands than could possibly be accommodated adequately. However, and as Russian journalist Teplyakov explains in the following article, much of the blame for the terrible fate of the Soviet soldiers in German captivity was due to the inflexibly cruel policy of Soviet dictator Stalin.


During the war, the Germans made repeated attempts through neutral countries and the International Committee of the Red Cross to reach mutual agreement on the treatment of prisoners by Germany and the USSR. As British historian Robert Conquest explains in his book Stalin: Breaker of Nations, the Soviets adamantly refused to cooperate:


"When the Germans approached the Soviets, through Sweden, to negotiate observance of the provisions of the Geneva Convention on prisoners of war, Stalin refused. The Soviet soldiers in German hands were thus unprotected even in theory. Millions of them died in captivity, through malnutrition or maltreatment. If Stalin had adhered to the convention (to which the USSR had not been a party) would the Germans have behaved better? To judge by their treatment of other 'Slav submen' POWs (like the Poles, even surrendering after the [1944] Warsaw Rising), the answer seems to be yes. (Stalin's own behavior to [Polish] prisoners captured by the Red Army had already been demonstrated at Katyn and elsewhere [where they were shot]."


Another historian, Nikolai Tolstoy, affirms in The Secret Betrayal:


"Hitler himself urged Red Cross inspection of [German] camps [holding Soviet prisoners of war]. But an appeal to Stalin for prisoners' postal services received a reply that clinched the matter: 'There are no Soviet prisoners of war. The Soviet soldier fights on till death. If he chooses to become a prisoner, he is automatically excluded from the Russian community. We are not interested in a postal service only for Germans'."


Given this situation, the German leaders resolved to treat Soviet prisoners no better than the Soviet leaders were treating the German soldiers they held. As can be imagined, Soviet treatment of German prisoners was harsh. Of an estimated three million German soldiers who fell into Soviet hands, more than two million perished in captivity. Of the 91,000 German troops captured in the Battle of Stalingrad, fewer than 6,000 ever returned to Germany.


As Teplyakov also explains here, Red Army "liberation" of the surviving Soviet prisoners in German camps brought no end to the suffering of these hapless men. It wasn't until recently, when long-suppressed Soviet wartime records began to come to light and long-silenced voices could at last speak out, that the full story of Stalin's treatment of Soviet prisoners became known. It wasn't until 1989, for example, that Stalin's grim Order No. 270 of August 16, 1941 -- cited below -- was first published.


-- Mark Weber



"What is the most horrible thing about war?"


Marshal Ivan Bagramyan, three-time Hero of the Soviet Union Alexander Pokryshkin, and Private Nikolai Romanov, who has no battle orders or titles, all replied with just one word: "Captivity."


"Is it more horrible than death?" I was asking soldier Nikolai Romanov a quarter of a century ago when, on the sacred day of May 9 [anniversary of the end of the war against Germany in 1945], we were drinking bitter vodka together to commemorate the souls of the Russian muzhiks who would never return to that orphaned village on the bank of the Volga.


"It's more horrible," he replied. "Death is your own lot. But if it's captivity, it spells trouble for many ..."


At that time, in 1965, I could not even vaguely imagine the extent of the tragedy which had befallen millions upon millions, nor did I know that that tragedy had been triggered by just a few lines from the Interior Service Regulations of the Workers' and Peasants' Red Army: a Soviet soldier must not be taken prisoner against his will. And if he has been, he is a traitor to the Motherland.


How many of them were there -- those "traitors"?


"During the war years," I was told by Colonel Ivan Yaroshenko, Deputy Chief of the Central Archives of the USSR Ministry of Defense, in Podolsk near Moscow, "as many as 32 million people were soldiers, and 5,734,528 of them were taken prisoner by the enemy."


Later I learned where this happened and when. Thus, the Red Army suffered the most tragic losses in terms of prisoners of war in the following battles: Belostok-Minsk, August 1941, 323,000; Uman, August 1941, 103,000; Smolensk-Roslavl, August 1941, 348,000; Gomel, August 1941, 30,000; Demyansk, September 1941, 35,000; Kiev, September 1941, 665,000; Luga-Leningrad, September 1941, 20,000; Melitopol, October 1941, 100,000; Vyazma, October 1941, 662,000; Kerch, November 1941, 100,000; Izyum-Kharkov, May 1942, 207,000. People were taken prisoner even in February 1945 (Hungary), 100,000.


The same archives in Podolsk hold another 2.5 million cards "missing in action" -- two and a half million who never returned home. Experts believe: two million of them are still lying in Russia's forests and marshes. And about 200,000 must be added to the list of POWs. Proof? From time to time the Podolsk archives receive a letter from somewhere in Australia or the United States: "I was taken prisoner. Request confirmation that I took part in battles against fascism."


This person was lucky -- he survived. The majority, however, had a different lot. German statistics put it on record: 280,000 person died at deportation camps and 1,030,157 were executed when trying to escape or died at factories or mines in Germany.


Many of our officers and men were killed by famine before they reached the camps. Nearly 400,000 men died in November-December 1941 alone. During the entire war there were 235,473 British and American prisoners of war in Germany -- 8,348 of them died. Were our men weaker? Hardly. The reasons were different. In the West it is believed that the millions of our POWs who died in captivity fell victim not only to fascism but also to the Stalinist system itself. At least half of those who died from hunger could have been saved had Stalin not called them traitors and refused to send food parcels to them via the International Red Cross.


It can be argued how many would have survived, but it's a fact that we left our POWs to the mercy of fate. The Soviet Union did not sign the Geneva Convention concerning the legal status of prisoners of war. Refusing to sign it was consistent with the Jesuitical nature of the "leader of the peoples."


From Stalin's point of view, several provisions of the Convention were incompatible with the moral and economic institutions which were inherent in the world's "freest country." The Convention, it turns out, did not guarantee the right to POWs as working people: low wages, no days off, no fixed working hours. Exception was also taken to the privileges fixed for some groups of POWs. In other words it should be more humane. But greater hypocrisy can hardly be imagined. What privileges were enjoyed at that very same time by millions in [Soviet] GULAG prison camps? What guarantees existed there and how many days off did they have?


In August 1941 Hitler permitted a Red Cross delegation to visit the camp for Soviet POWs in Hammerstadt. It is these contacts that resulted in an appeal to the Soviet government, requesting that it should send food parcels for our officers and men. We are prepared to fulfill and comply with the norms of the Geneva convention, Moscow said in its reply, but sending food in the given situation and under fascist control is the same as making presents to the enemy.


The reply came as a surprise. The Red Cross representatives had not read Stalin's Order of the Day -- Order No. 270, signed on August 16, 1941. Otherwise they would have understood how naive their requests and offers were, and how great was Stalin's hatred for those who had found themselves behind enemy lines.


It made no difference: who, where, how and why? Even the dead were considered to be criminals. Lt.-Gen. Vladimir Kachalov, we read in the order, "being in encirclement together with the headquarters of a body of troops, displayed cowardice and surrendered to the German fascists. The headquarters of Kachalov's groups broke out of the encirclement, the units of Kachalov's group battled their way out of the encirclement, but Lt.-Gen. Kachalov preferred to desert to the enemy."


General Vladimir Kachalov had been lying for 12 days in a burned out tank at the Starinka village near Smolensk, and never managed to break out to reach friendly forces. Yet this was of no concern for anyone. They were busy with something else -- looking for scapegoats whom they could dump all of their anger on, looking for enemies of the people whose treachery and cowardice had again subverted the will of the great military leader.


We had to be "convinced" again and again: the top echelons of authority, the leaders, have no relation whatsoever to any tragedy, to any failure -- be it the collapse of the first Five-Year Plan or the death of hundreds of thousands of soldiers on the Dnieper. Moreover, these misfortunes cannot have objective reasons either, being due solely to the intrigues of saboteurs and the enemies of the progressive system. For decades, ever since the 1930s, we have been permanently looking for scapegoats in the wrong place, but finding them nevertheless. At that time, in the first summer of the war, plenty of them were found. And the more the better. On June 4, 1940, the rank of general was re-established in the Red Army. They were awarded to 966 persons. More than 50 were taken prisoner in the very first year of the war. Very many of them would envy their colleagues -- those 150 generals who would later die on the battlefields. The torments of captivity proved to be darker than the grave. At any rate the destinies of Generals Pavel Ponedelin and Nikolai Kirillov, mentioned in the same Order No. 270, prove that this is so. They staunchly withstood their years in the German camps. In April 1945 the [western] Allies set them free and turned them over to the Soviet side. It seemed that everything had been left behind, but they were not forgiven for August 1941. They were arrested after a "state check-up": five years in the Lefortovo jail for political prisoners and execution by a firing squad on August 25, 1950.


"Stalin's last tragic acts in his purging of the military were the accusations of betrayal and treachery he advanced in the summer of 1941 against the Western Front commanders, Pavlov and Klimovskikh, and several other generals among whom, as it became clear later, there were also people who behaved in an uncompromising way to the end when in captivity." This assessment is by the famous chronicler of the war, Konstantin Simonov. It appeared in the 1960s, but during the wartime ordeals there was indomitable faith: the prisoners of war (both generals and soldiers) were guilty. No other yardstick existed.


International law states that military captivity is not a crime, "a prisoner of war must be as inviolable as the sovereignty of a people, and as sacred as a misfortune." This is for others, whereas for us there was a different law -- Stalin's Order No. 270.


If ... "instead of organizing resistance to the enemy, some Red Army men prefer to surrender, they shall be destroyed by all possible means, both ground-based and from the air, whereas the families of the Red Army men who have been taken prisoner shall be deprived of the state allowance [that is, rations] and relief."


The commanders and political officers ... "who surrender to the enemy shall be considered malicious deserters, whose families are liable to be arrested [just] as the families of deserters who have violated the oath and betrayed their Motherland."


Just a few lines, but they stand for the hundreds of thousands of children and old folks who died from hunger only because their father or son happened to be taken prisoner.


Just a few lines, but they amount to a verdict on those who never even thought of a crime, who were only waiting for a letter from the front.


Having read these lines, I came to understand the amount of grief they carried for absolutely innocent people, just as I understood the secret sorrow of the words Private Nikolai Romanov told me a quarter of a century ago: "Your own captivity spells trouble for many."


I understood why the most horrible thing for our soldiers was not to be killed, but to be reported "missing in action," and why before each battle, especially before the assault crossing of rivers, they asked one another: "Buddy, if I get drowned, say that you saw me die."


Setting their feet on a shaky pontoon and admitting, as it were, that they could be taken prisoner solely through their own fault, they mentally glanced back not out of fear for their own lives -- they were tormented and worried over the lives of those who had stayed back at home.


But what was the fault of the hundreds of thousands of soldiers encircled near Vyazma when Hitler launched Operation Taifun -- his advance on Moscow? "The most important thing is not to surrender your positions," the General Headquarters of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief ordered them. And the army was feverishly digging trenches facing the west, when panzer wedges were already enveloping them from the east.


General Franz Halder, Chief of Staff of the Wehrmacht's ground forces, made the following entry in his diary on this occasion: "October 4 -- 105 days of the war. The enemy has continued everywhere holding the unattacked sectors of the front, with the result that deep envelopment of these enemy groups looms in the long term."


Who was supposed to see these wedges? A soldier from his tiny foxhole or Stalin from the GHQ? And what was the result? Who was taken prisoner? Who betrayed the Motherland? The soldier did.


In May 1942, as many as 207,047 officers and men (the latest figure) found themselves encircled at Kharkov. When Khrushchev held power, it was Stalin that was considered to be guilty of this. When Brezhnev took over, the blame was again put on Khrushchev who, incidentally, had been merely warned by Stalin for that defeat which opened the road for the Germans to the Volga. But who then betrayed the Motherland, who was taken prisoner? The soldier.


May 19, 1942, is the date of our army's catastrophe in the Crimea. "The Kerch Operation may be considered finished: 150,000 POWs and a large quantity of captured equipment." This is a document from the German side. And here is a document from the Soviet side cited by Konstantin Simonov: "I happened to be on the Kerch Peninsula in 1942. The reason for the humiliating defeat is clear to me. Complete mistrust of the army and front commanders, Mekhlis' stupid willfulness and arbitrary actions. He ordered that no trenches be dug, so as not to sap the soldiers' offensive spirit."


Stalin's closest aide and then Chief of the Main Political Administration (GPU), Lev Mekhlis, the first Commissar of the Army and Navy, returned to Moscow after that defeat. And what did the soldier do? The soldier stayed in captivity.


There is no denying that no war can do without treachery and traitors. They could also be found among POWs. But if compared with the millions of their brothers in captivity, they amounted to no more than a drop in the ocean. Yet this drop existed. There is no escaping this. Some were convinced by leaflets like this one:



The Murderous Balance of Bolshevism:


Killed during the years of the Revolution and Civil War -- 2,200,000 persons.


Died from famine and epidemics in 1918 -1921 and in 1932-1933 -- 14,500,000 persons.


Perished in forced labor camps -- 10,000,000 persons.


Some even put it this way: I am not going into action against my people, I am going into action against Stalin. But the majority joined fascist armed formations with only one hope: as soon as the first fighting starts, I'll cross the line to join friendly troops. Not everyone managed to do this, although the following fact is also well known. On September 14, 1943, when the results of the Kursk Battle were summed up, Hitler explained the defeat by the "treachery of auxiliary units": indeed, at that time 1,300 men -- practically a whole regiment -- deserted to the Red Army's side on the southern sector. "But now I am fed up with this," Hitler said. "I order these units to be disarmed immediately and this whole gang to be sent to the mines in France."


It has to be admitted that it was Hitler who rejected longer than all others the proposals to form military units from among Soviet POWs, although as early as September 1941 Colonel von Tresckow had drawn up a plan for building up a 200,000-strong Russian anti-Soviet army. It was only on the eve of the Stalingrad Battle, when prisoners of war already numbered millions, that the Führer gave his consent at last.


All in all, it became possible to form more than 180 units. Among them the number of Russian formations was 75; those formed from among Kuban, Don and Terek Cossacks -- 216; Turkistan and Tatar (from Tataria and the Crimean Tatars) -- 42; Georgian -- 11; peoples of the Northern Caucasus -- 12; Azerbaijani -- 13; Armenian -- 8.


The numerical strength of these battalions by their national affiliation (data as of January 24, 1945) was the following: Latvians -- 104,000; Tatars (Tataria) -- 12,500, Crimean Tatars -- 10,000; Estonians -- 10,000; Armenians -- 7,000; Kalmyks -- 5,000. And the Russians? According to the official figures of Admiral Karl Dünitz's "government," as of May 20, 1945, there were the 599th Russian Brigade -- 13,000, the 600th -- 12,000, and the 650th -- 18,000 men.


If all of this is put together (as we are doing now), it would seem that there were many who served on the other side. But if we remember that only 20 percent of these forces took part in hostilities, that they were recruited from among millions of POWs, that thousands upon thousands crossedthe front line to return to friendly troops, the brilliance of the figures will clearly fade.


One detail -- the Reich's special services displayed special concern over forming non-Russian battalions as if they knew that they would be required, especially after the war when whole peoples, from babies to senile old men, came to be accused of treachery. And it made no difference -- whether you were kept in a prison camp or served in the army -- all the same you were an enemy.


But the POWs themselves were not yet aware of this -- everything still lay ahead. The hangover after liberation would set in a little later. Both for those who themselves escaped from the camps (500,000 in 1944, according to the estimate of Germany's Armaments Minister Speer) and for those who after liberation by Red Army units (more than a million officers and men) again fought in its ranks.


For too long a time we used to judge the spring of 1945 solely by the humane instructions issued by our formidable marshals -- allot milk for Berlin's children, feed women and old men. It was strange reading those documents, and at the same time chewing steamed rye instead of bread, and eating soup made of dog meat (only shortly before her death did my grandmother confess she had slaughtered dogs to save us from hunger). Reading those orders, I was prepared to cry from tender emotions: how noble it was to think that way and to show such concern for the German people.


And who of us knew that at the same time the marshals received different orders from the Kremlin with respect to their own people?


[To the] Commanders of the troops of the First and Second Byelorussian Fronts [Army Groups], and the First, Second, Third and Fourth Ukrainian Fronts ...


The Military Councils of the Fronts shall form camps in [rear-zone] service areas for the accommodation and maintenance of former prisoners of war and repatriated Soviet citizens -- each camp for 10,000 persons. All in all, there shall be formed: at the Second Byelorussian Front -- 15 [camps]; at the First Byelorussian Front -- 30; at the First Ukrainian Front -- 30; at the Fourth Ukrainian Front -- 5; at the Second Ukrainian Front -- 10; at the Third Ukrainian Front -- 10 camps ...


The check-up [of the former prisoners of war and repatriated citizens] shall be entrusted as follows: former Red Army servicemen -- to the bodies of SMERSH counter-intelligence; civilians -- to the commissions of the NKVD, NKGB, SMERSH ...


J. Stalin


I phoned Col.-Gen. Dmitri Volkogonov, Chief of the Institute of Military History under the USSR Ministry of Defense [and author of Stalin: Triumph and Tragedy]: "Where did you find that order? Both at the State Security Committee and at the USSR Ministry of Internal Affairs they told me that they had nothing of the kind."


"This one is from Stalin's personal archives. The camps existed, which means that there are also papers from which it is possible to learn everything: who, where, what they were fed, what they thought about. Most likely, the documents are in the system of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. The convoy troops were subordinate to this government department. It included the Administration for the Affairs of Former Prisoners of War. Make a search."


And search I did. Maj.-Gen. Pyotr Mishchenkov, First Deputy Chief of the present-day Main Administration for Corrective Affairs (GUID) at the USSR Ministry of Internal Affairs, was sincerely surprised: "This is the first I heard about this. I would be glad to help, but there is nothing I can do about it. I know that there was a colony in the Chunsky district of the Irkutsk Region. People got there after being checked up at the filtering camps mentioned in Stalin's order. They were all convicted under Article 58 -- high treason."


One colony ... Where are the others, what happened to their inmates? After all, as many as 100 camps were at work. The only thing I managed to find out -- by October 1, 1945, they had "filtered" 5,200,000 Soviet citizens; 2,034,000 were turned over by the Allies -- 98 percent of those who stayed in Germany's western occupation zones, mostly POWs. How many of them returned home? And how many went, in accordance with Order No. 270, into Soviet concentration camps? I don't yet have any authentic documents in my possession. Again only Western estimates and some eyewitness accounts.


I spoke to one such eyewitness on the Kolyma. A former "traitor to the Motherland," but then the accountant general of the Srednekan gold field, Viktor Masol, told me how in June 1942 in the Don steppes after the Kharkov catastrophe they -- unarmed, hungry, ragged Red Army men -- were herded like sheep by German tanks into crowds of many thousands. Freight cars took them to Germany, where he mixed concrete for the Reich, and three years later they were sent in freight cars from Germany across the whole Soviet Union -- as far as the Pacific Ocean. In the port of Vanino they were loaded into the holds of the Felix Dzerzhinsky steamship [named after the founder of the Soviet secret police], which had previously borne the name of Nikolai Yezhov, [a former] People's Commissar of Internal Affairs [that is, the NKVD or secret police], bound for Magadan. During the week they were on their way, they were given food only once -- barrels with gray flour, covered with boiling water, were lowered through the hatch. And they, burning their hands and crushing one another, snatched this mess and stuffed it, choking, into their mouths: most often people go crazy with hunger. Those who died on the way were thrown overboard in the Nagayev Bay, the survivors marched into the taiga, again behind the barbed wire of -- now -- their native prison camps.


Just a few survived and returned. But even they were like lepers. Outcasts. How many times they heard: "Better a bullet through your head ..."


Many former POWs thought about a bullet in the 1940s-1950s. Both when they were reminded from the militia office -- "you are two days overdue" (all the POWs were kept on a special register with mandatory reports on strictly definite days), and when people told them: "Keep silent. You whiled away your time in captivity on fascist grub ..."


And they did keep silent.


In 1956, after Khrushchev's report, it became possible to speak about Stalin. Former POWs were no longer automatically enemies of the people, but not quite yet defenders of the Motherland. Something in between. On paper it was one way, but in life everything was different.


Two years ago, on the eve of V-Day, I interviewed Col.-Gen. Alexei Zheltov, Chairman of the Soviet War Veterans' Committee. As befits the occasion, he was telling me with tears in his eyes about the holiday, about a Soviet soldier, an accordion in his hands, in the streets of spring-time Vienna. And I don't know what made me ask him, well, and former prisoners of war, are they war veterans?


"No, they are not veterans. Don't you have anything else to write about? Look how many real soldiers we have ..."


If Alexei Zheltov, the tried and tested veteran commissar, were the only one to think that way, that wouldn't be so bad. The trouble is that this philosophy is preached by the majority of the top brass. Both those who have long retired on pensions and who still hold command positions. For nearly 40 years we have been "orphaned," have lived without "the father of the peoples," but we sacredly revere his behests, sometimes not even noticing this ourselves.


Human blood is not water. But is has also proved to be a perfect conserving agent for Stalin's morality. It has become even thicker. It has not disappeared even after several generations. It lives on. And not infrequently it triumphs. Try and raise the problem of prisoners of war (even before me this theme was taken up on more than one occasion, so I'm no discoverer here) -- the reaction is always the same: better talk about something else. And if you fail to heed a "piece of good advice," they may even start to threaten: "Don't you dare!"


To whom should one address his requests? To the government or the Supreme Soviet? What beautiful walls of the Kremlin should one knock on to demand that soldierly dignity be returned to former POWs, that their good name be restored?


Suppose your knocking has been heard. They will ask: what are you complaining about? What resolution do you take exception to? Oh, not a resolution. You are only worried over the past? How strange ...


But it's even more strange that we still have real soldiers, real heroes and real people, meaning that there are also those who are not real. To this day our life is still like a battle front: by force of habit, we continue putting people in slots -- these on this side, others over there. There seems to be neither law nor Order No. 270 any longer, like there is no one and nothing to fight against, but all the same whatever was once called black may at best become only gray. But by no means white.


... May 9: the whole country cries and rejoices. Veterans don their medals and pour out wine, remembering their buddies. But even in this circle a former POW is the last to hold out his glass and the last to take the floor.


What then is to be done? What should we do to squeeze the Stalinoid slave out of ourselves?
