General Leroy Lutes remarked: "The French now grumble that the Americans are a more drunken and disorderly
lot than the Germans and hope to see the day when they are liberated from the Americans." Lutes discovered
that the Allied propaganda which portrayed the Germans as brutes was untrue: "I am informed the Germans
did not loot either residences, stores, or museums. In fact the people claimed that they were meticulously treated
by the Army of Occupation."
"I saw absolutely
no evidence of German abuse of the [French] population."

If you believe
that the Allied soldiers, American and British soldiers were angels compared to the evil German and Russian soldiers; you
are mistaken. (I do not talk of the cruel nuclear bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki nor of the terror bombing of Dresden
in 1944)) World War Two did weird things to all the fighters of all nations. They too had the blood lust. Even the American
and British soldiers. Below are instances when the 'good' Allied soldiers went bad. One hardly hears of them. But to be a
impartial student of history one has to be single-minded in the devotion to fairness. Other wise it would not be history,
but mere western propaganda.
of Allied witnesses interviewed for this narrative, almost every one had direct knowledge or even experience of the shooting
of German prisoners during the campaign... Many British and American units shot SS prisoners routinely,
which explained, as much as the fanatical resistance that the SS so often offered, why so few appeared in POW cages."
Patton wrote in his diary on 4 January 1945: "The Eleventh
Armored is very green and took unnecessary losses to no effect. There were also some unfortunate incidents in the
shooting of prisoners. I hope we can conceal this."
German resistance continued on into the Fall and
"the discipline of even some of the finest U.S. units was cracking," including the famous 82nd and 101st Airborne
Divisions. On 5 November 1944, Eisenhower's driver and girl friend, Kay Summersby, recorded: "General Betts reports
that disciplinary conditions in the army are becoming bad. Many cases of rape, murder, and pillage are causing complaints
by the French Dutch, etc." A month later, General Leroy Lutes remarked: "The French now grumble that the
Americans are a more drunken and disorderly lot than the Germans and hope to see the day when they are liberated from the
Americans." Lutes discovered that the Allied propaganda which portrayed the Germans as brutes was untrue:
"I am informed the Germans did not loot either residences, stores, or museums. In fact the people claimed that they
were meticulously treated by the Army of Occupation." By the end of the war, over 450 GIs were sentenced to
death by courts-martial, nearly all for having committed nonmilitary offenses like rape and murder.
In sharp contrast
with the picture long held up to us of American GIs being welcomed by a grateful French populace, David Irving ("War
Between The Generals") is one of several historians who are casting new light on these events. It seems that far from
acting like Boy Scouts out on a mission of mercy, American soldiers terrorized many of the people they were supposed to
be liberating from the clutches of the nasty Nazis. As Irving informs his readers: "An ordeal began for the
French who stayed behind in Normandy to welcome their liberators. They were liable to be vandalized, robbed, raped, murdered.
Indeed, the behavior of GIs throughout liberated Europe was causing apprehension in Washington. The Joint Chiefs
reviewed a report from Rome too that conditions now were worse than when the Germans had been there." Following a visit
to Caen, B.H. Liddell Hart, the famous British military strategist and historian, pointed out that "Most Frenchmen
speak of the correctness of the German Army's behavior. They seem particularly impressed that German soldiers were shot
for incivility to women and compare this with the American troops' bad behavior toward women." According to an official
U.S. Army report, "Unfortunately most of these undisciplined acts were caused by colored troops."
American author Marguerite Higgins visited
Germany during the time in question and later wrote of her experiences. In her book, "News in an singular thing"
she described a visit to a GI "Interrogation Center"
"The GI led us to the main door of the camp...Behind the bars of the cell we saw 3 uniformed Germans.
Two of them, beaten and covered with blood, were lying unconscious on the floor. A third German was lifted up
by the hair on his head, and I shall never forget, he had red hair like a carrot. A GI turned his body over
and struck him in the face. When the victim groaned, the GI roared, "Shut your mouth, damned Kraut!"
....It turned out that for almost a quarter of an hour, the doubled rows of 20 to 30 GI’s stood aligned taking turns
methodically beating the six captured Germans...It came out later that the worked-up GI’s had captured six young German
boys, who had never even been members of the SS. The youngsters had only recently been inducted into a government work battalion.
The boy with the red hair was 14 years old. The other 5 German boys in the cell blocks were between 14 and 17 years old."

An SS officer is ordered by his interrogators to take off his shirt and undershirt. He is then beaten about the
face and back with a whip. An MP extinguishes his lit cigarette on the man’s back. He is then ordered to stand with
his face against a wall, while his interrogators press the muzzle of a gun against his neck. A chain is placed around his
wrist and twisted until the man collapses from the pain.

then urinates all over his body.
At a special camp run by the Americans
for captured SS and Nazi Party members, a sadistic American Sergeant, Paul Doyle, brutally torments the men under his charge.
Daily he beats men into unconsciousness, often breaking their ribs. The men are beaten so frequently and so badly that
they have to be hospitalized. One night he enters a cell and beats a man for an exceptionally long period of time. When
the victim becomes unconscious, water is thrown into his face to revive him. He is then beaten again. Finally, he is dragged
from his cell unconscious. The man is later hospitalized for severe injuries, internal and external. Another SS officer
is so badly beaten by Doyle that he later dies of his injuries. Another victim has his head pushed under water for long
periods of time and his buttocks so severely whipped that the skin is torn and hanging.

MASSACRES BY BRITISH SOLDIERS
(Near Hamburg, 1945)
A week after the discovery of the Belsen Concentration Camp, a rumour reached the British Army's 'Desert Rats'
that the 18th SS Training Regiment of the Hitler Jugend Division, had shot their prisoners at the nearby village of Rather.
The 'Rats' were engaged in a fierce battle with the SS defenders in the village of Nahrendorf. Slowly, and in groups, the
SS began to surrender. As the noise of battle died away the villagers emerged from their cellars and found the bodies
of 42 SS soldiers lying in a shallow grave. The bodies were then interned on a hilltop cemetery near the village.
Each year, hundreds of SS veterans visit the cemetery to pay tribute to their fallen comrades whom, they say, were shot
in cold blood on the orders of a ‘crazed blood-thirsty British NCO’. (Perpetrators are honoured, victims are

In the aftermath of the Malmedy massacre
a written order from the HQ of the 328th US Army Infantry Regiment, dated December 21, 1944, stated: No SS troops
or paratroopers will be taken prisoner but will be shot on sight. Major-General Raymond Hufft (U.S. Army) gave instructions
to his troops not to take prisoners when they crossed the Rhine in 1945. "After the war, when he reflected on the war
crimes he authorized, he admitted, 'if the Germans had won, I would have been on trial at Nuremberg instead of them.'"
Stephen Ambrose related: "I've interviewed well over 1000 combat veterans. Only one of them said he shot a prisoner...
Perhaps as many as one-third of the veterans...however, related incidents in which they saw other GIs shooting unarmed German
prisoners who had their hands up."

363 Q Please state your name, rank, serial number and organization.
Howard E. Buchner, 1st Lieutenant, MC, 0-435481, 3rd Bn., 157th Infantry.
(The witness was advised of his rights
under the 24th Article of War.)
364 Q Do you remember the taking of the Dachau Concentration Camp?
365 Q Were you the surgeon of the 3rd Battalion, 157th Infantry, at that time?
366 Q Did you see or visit a yard by the power plant where some German soldiers
had been shot?
A I did, sir.
367 Q Can you fix the hour at which
you saw this?
A Not with certainty, but I would judge about 4:00 o'clock in the afternoon.
Q Of what day?
A I can't give the exact date.
Q Describe to me what you saw when you visited this yard.
A We learned
that one of our companies had gone through the camp and that it was something to see out there. So, we got on one of the
peeps to visit there and we were detained for some time by the commanding officer of the 1st Battalion, 157th Infantry, because
he didn't know whether the place had been cleared. When we got there we saw a quadrangular enclosure, there was a cement
wall about ten feet high and inside this enclosure I saw 15 or 16 dead and wounded German soldiers lying along the wall.
Q Did you determine which were dead and which were wounded?
A I did not examine
any of them, sir, but I saw several of them moving very slightly.
371 Q Did you make any examination to determine
whether or not those who were not dead could be saved?
A I did not.
Q Was there any guard there?
A There was a soldier standing at the entrance of this
yard whom I assumed to be a guard.
373 Q Do you know the soldier or what company he was from?
374 Q Do you know whether or not any medical attention was called for these wounded German soldiers?
I do not.
COL. HOWARD A. BUECHNER
Near the French village of Audouville-la-Hubert 30 German Wehrmacht prisoners were massacred by U.S.
Lieb has found that many US and Canadian units were ordered to not take prisoners during the D-Day landings in Normandy.
If this view is correct it may explain the fate of 64 German prisoners (out of 130 captured) who did not make it to the
POW collecting point on Omaha Beach on D-Day.
According to an article in Der Spiegel by
Klaus Wiegrefe, many personal memoirs of Allied soldiers have been willfully ignored by historians until now because
they were at odds with the "Greatest Generation" mythology surrounding WWII, but this has recently started
to change with books such as "The Day of Battle" by Rick Atkinson where he describes Allied war crimes in Italy,
and "D-Day: The Battle for Normandy," by Anthony Beevor. Beevor's latest work is currently discussed by scholars,
and should some of them be proven right that means that Allied war crimes in Normandy were much more extensive "than
was previously realized".
A SURVIVOR OF THE DACHAU MASSACRE RECOLLECTS (Source)
of the Dachau Massacre was Hans Linberger, who was one of the German soldiers that were forced out of the SS hospital and
lined up against a wall to be shot. In the photograph below, which shows the scene of the shooting, the hospital building
is on the right.
The following article
about Hans Linberger was written by T. Pauli for Berkenkruis in October 1988.
is the magazine of the veterans of the Flemish SS volunteers in World War II; T. Pauli was the chairman of the group in
1988 when this article was published. Pauli quoted from the testimony given to the German Red Cross by Hans Linberger.
Begin quote from article in Berkenkruis, October 1988, by T. Pauli:
Hans LINBERGER was wounded east of
Kiev when an AT-gun blew away his left arm and covered his body with shrapnel. It was his fourth wound. After a long stay
in the hospital he was posted to the Reserve-Kompanie at Dachau, on the 9th of March 1945.
On the 9th of April,
1945, the heavily wounded laid down their weapons; they were no longer suited to be put into action. They reported themselves
to the head of the hospital, Dr. SCHRÖDER, who sent them to the barracks. Evacuated women and children were present
in barrack right next to it. Preparations to be evacuated were made, doctors, staff and caretaking personnel all wore white
coats and the German Red Cross-armband.
Occasional battle noise was heard from SCHLEISSHEIM that day
(April 29, 1945), but around 4:30 PM things got quiet again. When suddenly single gunshots were to be heard, LINBERGER went,
holding a small Red Cross-flag, to the entrance (of the hospital). (This occurred around noon.) As could be seen from his
empty left sleeve, he was badly injured. To the Americans, who were pushing forward in battle-like style, he declared that
this was an unarmed hospital.
One Ami (sic) placed his MP against his chest and hit him in the face. Another
one said "You fight Ruski, you no good". The Ami (sic) who placed the
MP (Machine Pistol) against his chest went into the hospital and immediately shot a wounded man, who fell down to the ground
motionless. When SCHRÖDER wanted to surrender, he was beaten so hard that he received a skull fracture. (Ami was German
slang for an American.)
The Americans drove everyone
out to the main place and sorted out anyone who looked like SS. All of the SS men were then taken to the back of the central
heating building and placed against the wall. A MG (Machine gun) was posted and war correspondents came to film and photograph
the lined up men.
Here begins SS-Oberscharführer
Hans Linberger's testimony, under oath to the DRK (German Red Cross), about the following events:
comrade who was standing right beside me fell on top of me with a last cry - "Aww, the pigs are shooting at my stomach"
- as I let myself fall immediately. To me it didn't matter if they would hit me standing or lying down. As such I only got
the blood of the dead one, who was bleeding badly from the stomach, across my head and face, so I looked badly wounded. During
the pause in the shooting, which can only be explained by the arrival of drunken KZ-prisoners, who, armed with spades, came
looking for a man named WEISS. Several of them (the wounded soldiers) crawled forward to the Americans and tried to tell
them that they were foreigners, others tried to say that they never had anything to do with the camps. Yet this man WEISS
said: "Stay calm, we die for Germany". Oscha. (Oberscharführer) JÄGER asked me, while lying down, if
I had been hit, which I had to deny. He was shot through the lower right arm. I quickly gave him a piece of chocolate, as
we were awaiting a shot in the neck. A man wearing a Red Cross armband came to us, threw us some razor blades and said "There,
finish it yourself". JÄGER cut the wrist of his shot arm, I cut the left one, and when he wanted to use the blade
on me, an American officer arrived with Dr. SCHRÖDER, who could barely keep himself standing, and the shooting was
stopped. This allowed us to drag away the wounded. I remember a comrade with a shot in the stomach, who came to us at Dachau,
in a room of café Hörhammer, where all possible troops were mixed together. On the road, we were spit upon and
cursed at by looters from the troop barracks who wished we would all be hung. During this action (sic) 12 dead were left
nameless. As I later found out, documents and name tags had been removed on American orders, and a commando (work party)
of German soldiers were supposed to have buried these dead in an unknown location. During the shooting, the wife of a Dr.
MÜLLER, with whom I had been in correspondencer years before, had poisoned herself and her two children. I was able
to find the grave of these persons. In this grave supposedly are buried 8 more SS-members, including an Oscha. MAIER. MAIER
had an amputated leg and was shot in another area of the hospital terrain adjacent to the hospital wall. He lay there with
a shot in his stomach and asked Miss STEINMANN to kill him, since he could not bear the pain any longer. His dying relieved
Miss STEINMANN from completing the last wish of this comrade. In the proximity of the hospital/mortuary were probably other
comrades executed at the walls, as I later found traces of gunfire there.
as a prisoner of war, I was pointed to a grave in the same hospital terrain, by the wife of a former KZ-prisoner, who on
All Saints Day in 1946 (November 1st) came near the fence and, while crying, remembered some children buried in the grave.
The children must have died after the collapse (Zusammenbruch) when the Americans took over the camp. Further, comrades from
the Waffen-SS are buried in the same grave, as could be concluded from a message of the Suchdienst (the German MIA tracing
AMERICAN BRUTALITY IN THE PACIFIC
American soldiers in the Pacific often deliberately killed Japanese soldiers who had surrendered.
According to Richard Aldrich, who has published a study of the diaries kept by United States and Australian soldiers, they
sometimes massacred prisoners of war. Dower states that in "many instances ... Japanese who did become prisoners were
killed on the spot or en route to prison compounds." According to Aldrich it was common practice for U.S. troops
not to take prisoners. This analysis is supported by British historian Niall Ferguson, who also says that, in 1943,
"a secret [U. S.] intelligence report noted that only the promise of ice cream and three days leave would ...
induce American troops not to kill surrendering Japanese."
such practices played a role in the ratio of Japanese prisoners to dead being 1:100 in late 1944. That same
year, efforts were taken by Allied high commanders to suppress "take no prisoners" attitudes, among their own personnel
(as these were affecting intelligence gathering) and to encourage Japanese soldiers to surrender. Ferguson adds that measures
by Allied commanders to improve the ratio of Japanese prisoners to Japanese dead, resulted in it reaching 1:7, by mid-1945.
Nevertheless, taking no prisoners was still standard practice among U. S. troops at the Battle of Okinawa, in April–June
Ulrich Straus, a U.S. Japanologist, suggests that frontline troops intensely
hated Japanese military personnel and were "not easily persuaded" to take or protect prisoners, as they believed
that Allied personnel who surrendered, got "no mercy" from the Japanese. Allied soldiers believed that
Japanese soldiers were inclined to feign surrender, in order to make surprise attacks. Therefore, according to Straus, "[s]enior
officers opposed the taking of prisoners[,] on the grounds that it needlessly exposed American troops to risks..." When
prisoners nevertheless were taken at Gualdacanal, interrogator Army Captain Burden noted that many times these were
shot during transport because "it was too much bother to take him in".
Ferguson suggests that "it was not only the fear of disciplinary action or of dishonor that deterred German and Japanese
soldiers from surrendering. More important for most soldiers was the perception that prisoners would be killed by the enemy
anyway, and so one might as well fight on."
U. S. historian James J. Weingartner
attributes the very low number of Japanese in U.S. POW compounds to two important factors, a Japanese reluctance to surrender
and a widespread American "conviction that the Japanese were "animals" or "subhuman'" and
unworthy of the normal treatment accorded to POWs. The latter reason is supported by Ferguson, who says that "Allied
troops often saw the Japanese in the same way that Germans regarded Russians—as Untermenschen."
AMERICAN SOLDIERS: STARVATION AT REMADEN
capture of the Remagen Bridge, the US Army hastily erected around 19 Prisoner of War cages around the bridge-head to hold
an estimated one million prisoners. The camps were simply open fields surrounded by concertina wire. Those at the Rhine
Meadows were situated at Remagen, Bad Kreuznach, Andernach, Buderich, Rheinbach and Sinzig. The German prisoners
were hopeful of good treatment from the GIs but in this they were sadly disappointed. Herded into the open spaces like cattle,
some were beaten and mistreated. No tents or toilets were supplied. The camps became huge latrines, a sea of urine from one
end to the other. They had to sleep in holes in the ground which they dug with their bare hands. In the Bad
Kreuznach cage, 560,000 men were interned in an area that could only comfortably hold 45,000. Denied enough food and water,
they were forced to eat the grass under their feet and the camps soon became a sea of mud. After the concentration camps
were discovered, their treatment became worse as the GIs vented their rage on the hapless prisoners.
In the five camps around Bretzenheim, prisoners had to survive on 600-850
calories per day. With bloated bellies and teeth falling out, they died by the thousands. During the two and a half months
(April-May, 1945) when the camps were under American control, a total of 18,100 prisoners died from malnutrition, disease
and exposure. This extremely harsh treatment at the hands of the Americans resulted in the deaths of over
50,000 German prisoners-of-war in the Rhine Meadows camps alone in the months just before and after the war ended.
'SICK' BEHAVIOUR OF AMERICAN SOLDIERS
Some Allied soldiers collected Japanese body parts.
The incidence of this by American personnel occurred on "a scale large enough to concern the Allied military
authorities throughout the conflict and was widely reported and commented on in the American and Japanese wartime press."
The collection of Japanese body parts began quite early in the war, prompting a September
1942 order for disciplinary action against such souvenir taking. Harrison concludes that, since this was the first real
opportunity to take such items (the Battle of Guadalcanal), "[c]learly, the collection of body parts on a scale large
enough to concern the military authorities had started as soon as the first living or dead Japanese bodies were encountered."
When Japanese remains were repatriated from the Mariana Islands after the war, roughly 60
percent were missing their skulls.
In a memorandum dated June 13, 1944, the U.S. Army Judge
Advocate General (JAG) asserted that "such atrocious and brutal policies," in addition to being repugnant,
were violations of the laws of war, and recommended the distribution to all commanders of a directive pointing
out that "the maltreatment of enemy war dead was a blatant violation of the 1929 Geneva Convention on the sick and wounded,
which provided that: After every engagement, the belligerent who remains in possession of the field shall take measures
to search for wounded and the dead and to protect them from robbery and ill treatment."
sailor with a Japanese skull
These practises were in addition also in violation
of the unwritten customary rules of land warfare and could lead to the death penalty. The U.S. Navy JAG mirrored that opinion
one week later, and also added that "the atrocious conduct of which some US personnel were guilty could lead
to retaliation by the Japanese which would be justified under international law".
THE DACHAU KILLINGS (April, 1945)
The Dachau Concentration Camp, near Munich, was liberated by US forces on
the 29th. of April, 1945. First to enter the camp and confront the horror within was Private First Class John Degro, the
lead scout of Company 1, 3rd Battalion, 157 Infantry Regiment, 45th Division of the US 7th Army. Prior to entering the camp,
the troops had come upon a train of thirty nine cattle trucks parked just outside the camp. The train had come from Auschwitz
in Poland after a journey of thirty days. The trucks were filled with the corpses of 2,310 Hungarian and Polish Jews who
had died from hunger and thirst. Enraged, the Americans rounded up most of the SS guard complement of 560 men, hundreds of
whom had already deserted. Included in the round-up was a detachment from the 5th SS Panzer 'Viking' Division sent to Dachau
earlier to maintain security and replace those who had deserted. Guarded by angry GIs, one group of guards were lined up
against a wall to await the appearance of their commander, SS Obersturmfüher Heindrich Skodzensky.
When he appeared, dressed immaculately with polished boots, and giving the military salute, which was
ignored by the US company commander, Lt. William Jackson, who ordered "Line this piece of shit up with the rest of
'em over there". The GIs lost control and began shouting 'Kill em, kill em'. Filled with murderous rage
and with tears streaming down his face, one GI of the 15th Infantry Regiment, opened fire with his machine-gun. After three
bursts of raking fire, a total of 122 SS men lay dead or dying along the base of the wall. A few of the camp inmates, dressed
in the familiar striped clothing and armed with .45 caliber pistols, then walked along the line of dead and dying guards
and administrated the coup de grace to those still alive. Forty other guards were killed by revengeful inmates, some having
their arms and legs torn apart. At another site near the SS hospital, hundreds of German guards were machine
gunned to death on the orders of the executive officer of Company 1, 3rd Battalion. Altogether, a total of 520 persons,
acting as camp and tower guards, including many Hungarians in German uniforms and recently returned from the Eastern Front,
were killed that day. The sad fact is that many of these guards were new arrivals at the camp and were not the real culprits,
the truly guilty had already fled. (Controversy rages to this day over just how many camp
guards were killed at Dachau and different units of the US Army are still claiming the title 'First Liberators')
THE WEBLING ATROCITY
On the same day that the Dachau Concentration Camp was discovered, a massacre took place in the little
hamlet of Webling about ten kilometres from the camp. A Waffen-SS unit had arrived at the hamlet, which consisted of about
half a dozen farm houses, barns and the Chapel of St. Leonhard, to take up defensive positions in trenches dug around the
farms by French P.O.W. workers. Their orders were to delay the advance of American tanks of the 20th Armoured Division and
infantry units of the 7th US Army which was approaching Dachau.
The farms, mostly run by women (whose husbands were either dead, prisoners of war or still fighting)
with the help of French POWs, came under fire on the morning of 29th April causing all inhabitants to rush for the cellars.
One soldier of Company F of the US 222nd Infantry Regiment of the 42nd Rainbow Division, was killed as they entered the
hamlet under fire from the Waffen-SS unit. The first German to emerge from the cellar was the owner of the farm, Herr Furtmayer.
Informed by the French POWs that only civilians, not SS, were in hiding in the cellers, the GIs proceeded to round up the
men of the SS unit.
surrender was an officer, Freiherr von Truchsess, heading a detachment of seventeen men. The officer was immediately struck
with a trenching tool splitting his head open. The other seventeen were lined up in the farmyard and shot. On a slight rise
behind the hamlet, another group of eight SS were shot. Their bodies were found lying in a straight line with their weapons
and ammunition belts neatly laid on the ground. This would suggest that the men were shot after they surrendered. Altogether,
one SS officer and forty one men lay dead as the infantry regiment proceeded on their way towards Dachau. Next
day the local people, with the help of the French POWs, buried the bodies in a field to be later exhumed by the German War
Graves Commission and returned to their families.
DRESDEN (February 13/14, 1945)
This city of culture is situated on both sides of the Elbe river. Of no
tactical or strategic value to the German war effort it was considered 'safe' from destruction by air attacks. By 1945 it
became a shelter for some 350,000 refugees fleeing from the approaching Red Army. At the Yalta conference Stalin requested
more action against cities such as Berlin, Leipzig and Chemnitz. No mention was made of Dresden. The fact that Dresden was
chosen was because the Russians at that time were only fifty kilometres away from the city, much nearer to Dresden than than
they were to Berlin, Leipzig or Chemnitz. No doubt Churchill was eager to impress the Soviet leader, Stalin. RAF and USAAF
bombers devastated the city in the most concentrated incendiary attack of the war in Europe (Operation Thunderclap) In
all, 733 British bombers dropped 1,478 tons of high explosive bombs and 1,182 tons of incendiary bombs and 311 US Flying
Fortresses dropped 771 tons of bombs on the city. Around 35,000 persons were reported as 'missing' after the fire-storm which
engulfed the city and destroyed eleven square miles of its center including 14,000 houses, 22 hospitals, 72 schools and
31 department stores. By the 10th of March, 18,375 dead and 2,212 seriously injured were accounted for. The final death
toll was expected to reach 25,000.
In one of the city squares 6,865 bodies were cremated.
Thousands of British and American prisoners-of-war were on work detail in the city from the large POW camp Stalag IVb at
nearby Muehlberg. Casualties among the prisoners were fewer than a hundred. Around 200,000 refugees from the east were camped
in the city's 'Grosser Garten'. It was estimated that about 1,300,000 people were in the city as the raid started. The
toll would have been much higher had not some bomber crews, knowing that thousands of refugees were in the city, deliberately
jettisoned their bomb loads wide of the mark. It is doubtful that the air attack on Dresden shortened the war by
even one day. At this point of the war, Germany was on the brink of collapse so why give the still twitching corpse this
one final brutal kick? Churchill was later to say "The destruction of Dresden remains a serious query against the
conduct of Allied bombing". In 1956, Dresden in Germany and Coventry in England, (1,236 deaths) entered a twin-town
relationship. (In 1956, the German Statistical Office estimated that German civilian dead, due to air raids throughout the
war, to be around 410,000)
The merciless revenge perpetrated on
the entire German civilian population of Eastern Europe during the closing stages of the war, and for many months after,
took the lives of over 2,100,000 ethnic German men, women and children. For generations these Germans had lived and toiled
in areas that today are part of central and Eastern Europe. Around fifteen million of these Volksdeutsche were driven from
their homes and ancestral lands in Poland, East Prussia, Silesia, Ukraine, Belarus and Serbia and forced back into the Allied
occupied zones of Germany.
This was the greatest forcible evacuation of people in European history. It is estimated
that of the eight million Germans expelled from Poland around 1,600,000 died in the process. In Czechoslovakia, memories
of the Lidice massacre inspired acts of revenge against German soldiers and civilians. Soldiers were disarmed, tied to stakes,
doused with petrol and set alight. Wounded German soldiers in hospital were shot in their beds, others were hung up on lamposts
in Wenzell Square and fires were lit beneath them so that they died the gruesome death of being roasted alive. These ethnic
Germans lived in fear of the Russians but no one thought that the dreadful fate which awaited them would not even emanate
from the Soviets at all but from their own neighbours, the Czechs!
Thousands of innocent German residents were
murdered in their homes by the Czechs, others were forced into interment camps where they were beaten and maltreated before
being expelled. Bishop Beranek of Prague declared: 'If a Czech comes to me and confesses to having killed a German,
I absolve him immediately'. The Americans, utterly blind to the political consequences of allowing the Soviets to liberate
Czechoslovakia, halted at the Karlsbad-Pilsen-Budweis line. The Sudeten Germans now had no protection from the
torrent of bestiality vented on them by the Czechs. In Brno, 25,000 German civilians were forced marched at gun-point to
the Austrian border. There, the Austrian guards refused them entry, the Czech guards refused to re-admit them. Herded into
an open field they died by the hundreds from hunger and cold before being rescued by the US 16th Tank Division on May 8th
1945. In the Russian occupied zones of Eastern Europe and in Germany, hundreds of thousands of civilian men and women, Poles,
Czechs, Romanians and Germans, were transported to the Urals in the Soviet Union and used as slave labourers until released
in the late 40s. Mostly ignored by the world's press, the unimaginable suffering experienced by the expellees is
largely unknown outside Germany, yet it was systematically carried out in a brutal fashion as official Allied policy in accordance
with the decisions formulated at Yalta and Potsdam.
RAMPAGE ON MONTE CASSINO
Monte Cassino fell to the Allies on May 18, 1944. After a four month struggle and the abbey bombed into ruins
by the US Air Force, Polish troops of the 12th Lancers, 3rd Carpathian Division, raised their regimental flag over the ruins
of the 6th century Benedictine Monastery situated high in the Apennines of central Italy. The next night thousands
of French Moroccan, Algerian, Tunisian and Senegalese troops, attached to the French Expeditionary Corps, swarmed over the
slopes of the hills surrounding Monte Cassino and in the villages of Ciociaria and Esperia, which is in the region of Lazio,
raped every woman and girl that came within their sight. Over 2,000 women, ranging in age from 11 years to 86 years
suffered at the hands of these gang-raping soldiers as village after village was entered. Menfolk who tried to protect their
wives and daughters were murdered without mercy, around 800 of them died. Two sisters aged 15 and 18 were raped by dozens
of soldiers each. One died from the abuse, the other was still in a mental hospital in 1997, 53 years after the event. Most
of the dwellings in the villages were destroyed and everything of value was stolen.
Later in the war, these same
troops raped around 500 women in the Black Forrest town of Freudenstadt, on April 17, 1945, after its capture. In
Stuttgart, colonial French troops, mostly African, but under the command of General Eisenhower, rounded up around 2,000
women and herded them into the underground subways to be raped. In one week more women were
raped in Stuttgart than in the whole of France during the four year German occupation.
Allied troops, as well as Axis troops, committed terrible atrocities during the war. Some
years after the war a mass grave was discovered just west of the city of Nuremberg. In it were the bodies of some 200 SS
soldiers. It was not until 1976 that one of the bodies was positively identified. It was the body of SS Hauptsturmfuhrer
Kukula, the commander of the 1st Battalion, 38th SS Panzer Grenadier Regiment. Autopsies on the other bodies showed
that most had been shot at close range, the others beaten to death by the rifle butts of the US Seventh Army GIs. In the
village of Eberstetten, 17 German soldiers of the 'Gotz von Berlichingen' Division were shot after they surrendered to US
On April 8, 1945, fourteen members of the 116th Panzer Division were marched through the streets
of Budberg to the command post of the US 95th Infantry Division. There, they were lined up and shot. Three
were wounded but managed to escape.
On April 13, 1945, tanks of the US 97th or 78th Infantry Division were approaching
the village of Spitze about fifteen miles east of Cologne. They came under fire from a 8.8 anti-tank gun which disabled one
of the tanks. That night, the village was pounded by tank and artillery fire and at daybreak the US forces entered the village.
All the inhabitants, about eighty, were gathered together in front of the church. Included in the eighty were twenty German
soldiers, members of an anti-aircraft unit stationed in the village. They were separated from the civilians and
marched several hundred yards to a field just outside the village. There, they were lined up and mowed down by machine-gun
fire. Next day the US Army ordered the civilians to dig graves and bury the dead. On April 14, 1995, a memorial
for the twenty victims was built near the spot.
At the village of Chenogne in Belgium a
group of twenty-one German soldiers emerged from a burning building carrying a Red Cross flag. Their intention was
to surrender to the US forces but as they exited the doorway they were shot down by machine-gun and small arms fire. This
happened soon after the Malmedy Massacre on December 17, 1944.
During the Allied assault on Sicily, the largest of the Mediterranean
islands, (July, 1943) a dozen unarmed civilians, including some children, were apprehended by US troops after the town of
Canicatti surrendered. The civilians were reported to be looting after they had entered a bombed out soap and food factory
and were filling buckets with liquid soap that had spilled on the ground. At around 6pm, when an American officer,
a lieutenant-colonel, and a group Military Police, accompanied by three interpreters, entered the factory the officer fired
a series of shots from his automatic Colt-45 point blank into the crowd. He reloaded and fired again. Eight of the civilians,
including an eleven year old girl, died. The officer and soldiers then drove off. Fearing reprisals from
the residents of the town, the incident was hushed up for over sixty years. Due to the efforts of Dr. Joseph S.
Salemi of New York University, this atrocity was brought to light. The perpetrator of this crime, Lieutenant Colonel McCaffery,
died in 1954.
During the fighting at Leonforte in July 1943, according
to Mitcham and von Stauffenberg in the book The Battle of Sicily, The Loyal Edmonton Regiment killed captured German prisoners.
Kurt Meyer, of the 12th SS Panzer Division Hitlerjugend, accused Canadian
forces of the 3rd Canadian Infantry Division during the 1944 Normandy campaign of breaching the Hague Conventions. He claims
that on 7 June notes were found that ordered no prisoners to be taken, information confirmed by Canadian infantry under
interrogation; that prisoners were not to be taken if they hindered operations. Hubert Meyer also confirms this story; he
states that on 8 June a Canadian notebook was found that contained orders to not take prisoners if they impeded the attacking
force. Kurt Meyer also calls upon evidence from Bernhard Siebken’s war crimes trial during which the allegation was
made that Canadian infantry shot, on at least one occasion, German soldiers who had surrendered during the campaign.
C.P. Stacey, the Canadian official campaign historian, reports that
on 14 April 1945 rumours had been spread that the commanding officer of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders of Canada
had been killed by a civilian sniper; this resulted in the highlanders setting fire to civilian property within the
town of Friesoythe in a case of reprisal. Stacey later wrote that the highlanders first removed German civilians
from their property before setting the houses on fire, he commented that he was "glad to say that [he] never
heard of another such case".
AMERICANS KILLED MEN OF SS TOTENKOPF
When the Totenkopf surrendered (to the Americans) they were
turned over to the Soviets Linz in 1945. Those who were wounded or simply too exhausted to make it to Pregarten were executed
by the Americans along the way (some 80 in all suffered this fate).
MORE ON THE DACHAU MASSACRE, APRIL 29, 1945
The incident was investigated by Lt. Col. Joseph Whitaker, the Seventh
Army's Assistant Inspector General. A report on the "Investigation of Alleged Mistreatment of German Guards at Dachau"
was filed on June 8, 1945. It was marked secret, but the contents were later revealed to the public in 1991. A copy of the
report is included in Col. John H. Linden's book "The Surrender of Dachau 29 April 1945." The paragraphs below,
from the Secret Report, pertain to the Execution of German soldiers by members of the 45th Division.
Dan Dougherty was a 19-year-old soldier with C Company, which was ordered to relieve
I Company after the SS soldiers were killed. In an interview in April 2005 with Jennifer Upshaw, Assistant City Editor of
the Marin Independent Journal in Marin County, California, Dougherty said that the men of I company had "gone berserk"
under the strain.
"They became very emotional,
crying," Dougherty said. "We went in to relieve them. They'd walked along that same train of boxcars. We came to
the coal yard. It was a strange sight because here are about 10 reporters standing in this courtyard around corpses of SS
officers." An estimated 200 to 300 SS guards were rounded up - two to three dozen were "killed unnecessarily,"
Dougherty said. "I Company, we now know they got there about noon and at 2 p.m. arrived at the southwest corner and
worked over to the east side where the prison was. They were holding the prisoners of war in the coal yard. We know there
something happened. About 17 (guards) were shot." Dougherty said he has learned through his research a U.S. Army private
insisted the group had fired at the guards in self defense, although the company's commanding officer said the group was
not provoked. "I think it haunted some of them," he said. No one was ever charged with a crime, he said.
In a previous interview
with Ronnie Cohen of the Jewish Weekly News of Northern California in April 2001, Dougherty said that, soon after
he arrived at Dachau, he had seen about 10 reporters staring at a pile of corpses. The following is a quote from
Dougherty in this article: "This
mound of corpses was about 2 or 3 feet high and 15 feet across. And they were SS. One of the corporals in my company
whips out a hunting knife and cuts a finger off one of the bodies. He wanted an SS ring for a souvenir."
Herbert Stolpmann was a German POW
who worked for the US military at Dachau after the liberation. In an e-mail letter to me, Stolpmann wrote:
When American Troops "liberated" Camp
Dachau proper, they forced all the SS-families, including women and children, out of the so-called villas, put their
fathers against the wall and shot them. Most of the mothers had cyanide capsules; they gave them to their children
and told them, put them into their mouths, bite onto them as soon as Daddy is shot. The American "Liberators"
stopped the shooting after about 24 children were dead.
The American soldiers who were involved in the Dachau massacre were
court-martialled, but the papers were torn up and then burned by General George S. Patton, Commander of the US
Third Army. The Dachau massacre was kept secret until 1991 when information was finally released.
KILLINGS BY BRITISH
(Near Hamburg. 1945) A week
after the discovery of the Belsen Concentration Camp, the news reached the British Army's 'Desert Rats' that the 18th SS
Training Regiment of the Hitler Jugend Division, had shot their prisoners at nearby Rethem. The 'Rats' were engaged in a
fierce battle with the SS defenders in the village of Nahrendorf. Slowly, and in groups, the SS began to surrender. As the
noise of battle died away the villagers emerged from their cellars and found the bodies of 42 SS soldiers lying in a shallow
grave. The bodies were then interned on a hilltop cemetery near the village. Each year, hundreds of SS veterans visit the
cemetery to pay tribute to their fallen comrades whom, they say, were shot in cold blood on the orders of a ‘crazed
blood-thirsty British NCO’.
THE FRENCH PEOPLE THOUGHT THE GERMANS WERE
German resistance continued on into the Fall and "the discipline of even some
of the finest U.S. units was cracking," including the famous 82nd and 101st Airborne Divisions. On 5 November 1944,
Eisenhower's driver and girl friend, Kay Summersby, recorded: "General Betts reports that disciplinary conditions
in the army are becoming bad. Many cases of rape, murder, and pillage are causing complaints by the French Dutch, etc."
A month later, General Leroy Lutes remarked: "The French now grumble that the Americans are a more drunken and
disorderly lot than the Germans and hope to see the day when they are liberated from the Americans." Lutes
discovered that the Allied propaganda which portrayed the Germans as brutes was untrue: "I am informed
the Germans did not loot either residences, stores, or museums. In fact the people claimed that they were meticulously treated
by the Army of Occupation." By the end of the war, over 450 GIs were sentenced to death by courts-martial,
nearly all for having committed nonmilitary offenses like rape and murder.
"We have no doubt about your bravery or devotion to your fatherland,
nor do we believe that you are the monster described by your opponents."
... Mahatma Gandhi to Adolf Hitler
They Did It To Eastern Europe And Germany And They Will Do It To You Next.
What “we” did to Germany, during and after World
War Two, was of such bestiality and horror, that it beggars belief, that seventy years on, the only feature of
that war, a war which Germany was forced to fight, which is still discussed, is the unproven claims of crimes against
Jews, the very people whom called for the total annihilation of the German people.
This continuing propaganda is used to distract us
from the savagery of their own behaviour against civilians all across the region. All of the barbarity of which
they accuse the Germans should be laid, where it belongs, at their door.
General Eisenhower, the beast who would soon be the
President of the United States, at the opening of the Ruhr drive declared. “Our primary purpose is the destruction
of as many Germans as possible. I expect to destroy every German west of the Rhine and within that area in which
we are attacking.” Eisenhower, the Swedish Jew, having raped, robbed and destroyed his way across France
and Germany, then went on to starve one and a half million German Prisoners of War to death in his Rhine Meadows
Jew trio of Roosevelt, Churchill and Stalin, did then at Yalta, condemn millions of the people, of Eastern Europe
to a life under the control of the mass murdering Jew, Joseph Stalin, under whose orders untold millions of Christians
were brutally tortured and murdered.
In 1933, the declared aim of International Jewry, was the mass murder of the German people, every man,
woman and child, for daring to break free from the stranglehold of the Jew controlled, international banking system.
to disguise this truth, a tsunami of propaganda had to be unleashed, which was directed against the German victims
of those Jews, which turned reality on its head, condemning the German people to be accused and found guilty, of
things, which even had they been true, were as nothing compared with what the Jews did to the Germans.
It is now common knowledge, that Jew Bankers funded
a coup d’etat in Russia, followed by the incredibly brutal slaughter of sixty-five million Christians, which
included the starvation of millions in Ukraine, the Holodomor.
Two decades later these same Jews were initiating a war against Germany,
having already laid out their intention to wipe Germany off the face of the earth, by whatever means necessary.
In the middle of this slaughter of the Germans, when they had managed to murder a mere twenty-million poor souls,
the Jew Morgenthau’s Plan, to murder them all, had to be called off, due to International repulsion at what was
going on. As was the City of London Jew’s attempt to starve the Irish to death, when shiploads of supplies
arrived from America.
The Jews then claimed to have themselves suffered during this cold-blooded war against the Germans.
No shit? Suffering which in the main was due to ‘starvation’ – which is of course the Jews own
favourite weapon,- as a result of the murderous bombing of food convoys, which were bringing supplies to the
Camps, attacks which were carried out by the Jews own allies and disease, mainly Typhus. Most children now believe
that the war was declared to stop Hitler from killing Jews, such is the power of propaganda and the lies of those
German cities above 50,000 population and many smaller ones were from 50 to 80 per cent destroyed. Dresden, as
large as Pittsburgh, was wiped out and nearly all of its 620,000 inhabitants buried under the ruins.”
The British, whom to this day congratulate themselves
for having fought the “Good War,” when in view of what they did to the German people, they should
be down on their knees, begging forgiveness for having been duped into an illegal war for the Jews, they instead,
to this day, vilify their victims the ‘Krauts’ mainly of course in their Jew controlled media newspapers,
hiding the hate speech under the excuse of a football match.
“Hamburg, with its 1,150,000 people, was blasted
by huge attacks, in one of which the flames rolled a mile into the sky and roasted alive hundreds of thousands
of civilians in street temperatures of a thousand degrees.”
The British still celebrate their glorious victory, without
regard for the bloodshed involved, while still praising the way they coped with the minuscule bombardment of London,
which they call the ‘Blitz,’ and the attack on Coventry, when Churchill left the people to die, under
the bombs, when he had known the raid was coming.
“So, on April 4, 1945, Kassel (a town which was bombed on dozens of occasions)surrendered,
not more than 15,000 of its 250,000 still in the city and living. Thousands lay buried under the countless tons
of brick and mortar and twisted steel that had been dwellings and stores and factories.
“That was a year ago and it’s no exaggeration
to say that they are still dazed. Only a few have snapped out of their stupor to become real leaders. It is not
uncommon to see a person burst into helpless tears, if the conversation turns to recounting the war”(unnamed
The British and their allies, are now using the same scorched earth policy, across the Middle East, where
they are now employing the same terror tactics, this time crouching behind the same Commissars, now calling themselves
ISIS, using the same terror tactics which served during the invasion of Germany, rape, crucifixion, torture and
beheadings, which, had they been given the chance, would have massacred the German people out of existence. The
aim now is in order to reduce the population of the Middle East, to satisfy the dark desires of Israel.
The same thing was done to the ethnic Germans
in Eastern Europe, which created the greatest mass expulsion of people in history. This was when ‘hostilities
ended’ for the rest of us maybe, but not for the Jews in Soviet Russia, whom carried on their ‘Bitter
Harvest’ against White Christians, in all of the States which they had grabbed as ‘booty’ at
readers, what is going on in the Middle East today, can be traced all the way back to the shenanigans after the Great
War, the Russian coup d’etat, the downfall of the Ottoman Empire, the dismantling of the Austro Hungarian
Empire, and the handing over of an already populated Palestine into the hands of the Jews. The next step in this
grisly history is the installation of Greater Israel and then The New World Order, which will insist on a mass
genocide i.e. according to their own scribblings, they would prefer there to be no more than five-hundred-millions
of us.This genocide will include the ‘good Jews’ and there are
many of them, along with the rest of us. We are all in it together.
Between the months of April and May, the German capital Berlin saw more than
100,000 rape cases according to hospital reports, while East Prussia, Pomerania and Silesia saw more than 1.4 million rape
Between the months of January and August
of 1945, Germany saw the largest incident of mass rape known in history, where an estimated two million German women were
raped by the Soviet Red Army soldiers, as written by Walter Zapotoczny Jr. in his book, ‘Beyond Duty: The Reason Some
Soldiers Commit Atrocities’.
Hospital reports also stated
that abortion operations were being carried out daily across all German hospitals.
Natalya Gesse, who was a Soviet war correspondent at the time, said that
the Soviets didn’t care about the ages of their victims. “The Russian soldiers were raping every German female
from eight to eighty. It was an army of rapists,” she said.
caused the deaths of no less than 200,000 girls and women due to the spread of diseases, especially that many eyewitnesses
recounted victims being raped as much as 70 times in that period.
Red Army soldiers would mass rape German women as a kind of revenge against their enemy: The German army. They felt
that it was their earned right to do so as the German army had ‘violated’ their motherland by invading it. In
addition to not being in contact with women for long periods causing their animal instinct to be heightened.
In his book, Zapotoczny said that even female Russian soldiers did not disapprove of the
rapes, some finding it amusing.
“Our fellows were so sex-starved,” a Soviet major told a British
journalist at the time, “that they often raped old women of sixty, seventy or even eighty - much to these grandmothers’
surprise, if not downright delight.”
In his book, Zapotoczny
said that even female Russian soldiers did not disapprove of the rapes, some finding it amusing.
In 1948, rape cases decreased vastly after Soviet troops were ordered back to their camps
in Russia and left residential areas in Germany.
Bandits in Uniform' The Dark Side of GIs in Liberated France
who fought in World War II have commonly been depicted as honorable citizen warriors from the "Greatest Generation."
But a new book uncovers the dark side of some GIs in liberated France, where robbing, raping and whoring were rife.
May 29, 2013
The liberators made a lot of noise and drank too much. They raced around in their jeeps, fought in the streets
and stole. But the worst thing was their obsession with French women. They wanted sex -- some for free, some for
money and some by force.
After four years of German occupation,
the French greeted the US soldiers landing in Normandy on June 6, 1944 as liberators. The entire country was delirious
with joy. But after only a few months, a shadow was cast over the new masters' image among the French.
By the late summer of 1944, large numbers of women in Normandy were complaining about rapes
by US soldiers. Fear spread among the population, as did a bitter joke: "Our men had to disguise themselves
under the Germans. But when the Americans came, we had to hide the women."
With the landing on Omaha Beach, "a veritable tsunami of male lust" washed over France, writes
Mary Louise Roberts, a history professor at the University of Wisconsin, in her new book "What Soldiers Do:
Sex and the American GI in World War II France." In it, Roberts scrapes away at the idealized picture of
war heroes. Although soldiers have had a reputation for committing rape in many wars, American GIs have been largely
excluded from this stereotype. Historical research has paid very little attention to this dark side of the liberation
of Europe, which was long treated as a taboo subject in both the United States and France.
American propaganda did not sell the war to soldiers as a struggle for freedom, writes Roberts,
but as a "sexual adventure." France was "a tremendous brothel," the magazine Life fantasized
at the time, "inhabited by 40,000,000 hedonists who spend all their time eating, drinking (and) making love."
The Stars and Stripes, the official newspaper of the US armed forces, taught soldiers German phrases like:
"Waffen niederlegen!" ("Throw down your arms!"). But the French phrases it recommended to soldiers
were different: "You have charming eyes," "I am not married" and "Are your parents at home?"
After their victory, the soldiers felt it was time for a reward. And when they enjoyed themselves
with French women, they were not only validating their own masculinity, but also, in a metaphorical sense, the
new status of the United States as a superpower, writes Roberts. The liberation of France was sold to the American
public as a love affair between US soldiers and grateful French women.
the other hand, following their defeat by the Germans, many French perceived the Americans' uninhibited activities
in their own country as yet another humiliation. Although the French were officially among the victorious powers,
the Americans were now in charge.
'Scenes Contrary to Decency'
The subject of sex played a central role in the relationship between the French and their
liberators. Prostitution was the source of constant strife between US military officials and local authorities.
Some of the most dramatic reports came from the port city of Le Havre, which was overrun by
soldiers headed home in the summer of 1945. In a letter to a Colonel Weed, the US regional commander, then Mayor
Pierre Voisin complained that his citizens couldn't even go for a walk in the park or visit the cemetery without
encountering GIs having sex in public with prostitutes.
contrary to decency" were unfolding in his city day and night, Voisin wrote. It was "not only scandalous but
intolerable" that "youthful eyes are exposed to such public spectacles." The mayor suggested that
the Americans set up a brothel outside the city so that the sexual activity would be discrete and the spread of
sexually transmitted diseases could be combated by medical personnel.
the Americans could not operate brothels because they feared that stories about the soldiers' promiscuity would
then make their way back to their wives at home. Besides, writes Roberts, many American military officials did
not take the complaints seriously owing to their belief that it was normal for the French to have sex in public.
But the citizens of Le Havre wrote letters of protest to their mayor, and not just regarding
prostitution. We are "attacked, robbed, run over both on the street and in our houses," wrote one citizen
in October 1945. "This is a regime of terror, imposed by bandits in uniform."
'The Swagger of Conquerors'
were similar accounts from all over the country, with police reports listing holdups, theft and rapes. In Brittany,
drunk soldiers destroyed bars when they ran out of cognac. Sexual assaults were commonplace in Marseilles. In
Rouen, a soldier forced his way into a house, held up his weapon and demanded sex.
The military authorities generally took the complaints about rape seriously. However, the soldiers who were convicted
were almost exclusively African-American, some of them apparently on the basis of false accusations, because racism
was also deeply entrenched in French society.
A café owner from
Le Havre expressed the deep French disillusionment over the Americans' behavior when he said: "We expected
friends who would not make us ashamed of our defeat. Instead, there came incomprehension, arrogance, incredibly
bad manners and the swagger of conquerors."

American Historian Looks At 'Ethnic Cleansing’ of Germans
The German Expellees: Victims in War and Peace, by Alfred-Maurice de Zayas. New York: St. Martin's Press,
1993. 200 pages. 24 Photographs. Map. Notes. Bibliography. Index.
by Robert Clive
The grim fate of the 15
million German civilians who found themselves trapped in the path of the Red Army in the closing months of World War II,
or on the wrong side of the re-drawn postwar borders, is not a topic that has tended to excite the interest of historians.
And the general public, which is subjected to constant reminders about wartime Nazi brutality, is certainly not aware that
at least two million Germans lost their lives in the course of flight and mass expulsion from their ancestral homes in Eastern
Alfred de Zayas, a graduate of Harvard Law School
who earned a doctorate in history at the University of Gottingen in Germany, has devoted much of his professional career
to setting the record straight. His earlier books, Nemesis at Potsdam (which detailed Allied responsibility for
the brutal mass expulsion of Germans at the end of the war), and The Wehrmacht War Crimes Bureau, met with critical
acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic.
First published in
German in 1986, The German Expellees is based on extensive research in European and American archives. This American
edition is updated with new material not included in the German version.
Chapter One sketches the history of the Germans living throughout East Central Europe. Even students of history
are generally unaware of the fact that, starting in the twelfth century, German artisans, farmers, soldiers, and churchmen
were invited by reigning princes, kings, and emperors to settle in their domains. The essentially peaceful character of
the so-called “Drang nach Osten,” which witnessed the establishment of a German presence in East Prussia, Pomerania,
East Brandenburg, Silesia, Bohemia, Moravia, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Transylvania and Russia, has long been misrepresented
as some sort of "march of conquest."
then turns to the Paris Peace conference, where President Wilson's lofty pledge to secure "self-determination"
did not, it turned out, apply to Germans, Austrians, and Hungarians. The Treaty of Versailles also denied the right of self
determination to German citizens who resided in areas to be separated from pre-war Germany, including those living in Danzig,
Posen, and West Prussia. De Zayas recounts that the interwar Czech and Polish governments discriminated against their German
minorities. Polish atrocities against ethnic Germans (Volksdeutsche) were, unfortunately, not a fiction of Goebbels'
propaganda office, but were all too true. Soviet atrocities against the German civilian populations of East Prussia, Pomerania,
and Silesia have been recounted before, even if they are still not widely known.
De Zayas reviews these grim events, drawing specific attention to the fate of Nemmersdorf, East
Prussia, which fell to the Red Army in October 1944 and was then recaptured a short time later by the Wehrmacht. Women and
children were gang raped and then murdered in the most brutal fashion.
In the words of American historian and diplomat George Kennan: “The disaster that befell this area with the
entry of the Soviet forces has no parallel in modern European experience. There were considerable sections of it where,
to judge by all existing evidence, scarcely a man, woman or child of the indigenous population was left alive after the
initial passage of Soviet forces … The Russians … swept the native population clean in a manner that has no
parallel since the days of the Asiatic hordes.”
decisions for "resettlement" are considered in Chapter Four. Although the 1941 "Atlantic Charter" proclaimed
by Roosevelt and Churchill expressly rejected territorial changes that did not meet the desires of the affected people,
this did not discourage the British and American leaders from victims of this relatively unknown holocaust have later supporting
the forcible mass expulsion of ethnic Germans from Eastern and Central Europe. As early as August 1942, the Allied leaders
accepted the principle of forcible expulsion, which they reaffirmed at the Teheran Conference in 1943. At the February 1945
Yalta Conference, Churchill and Roosevelt further agreed to permit Stalin to use Germans as slave labor after the war, a
practice that the diplomats dubbed "reparations in kind." An estimated 874.000 German civilians were abducted
to Soviet ~ Russia, of whom 45 percent perished in captivity.
expulsion and deportation of millions of ethnic German civilians from Czecho-Slovakia, Poland, Hungary, Romania and Yugoslavia
is detailed by the author, who remarks that "hitherto it would seem that the blackout on this period of history had
been complete." While the Allied leaders at the Potsdam Conference called for the "orderly" and "humane"
resettlement of the hapless Germans, in practice it was anything but.
As de Zayas further points out, mass deportations were designated as "war crimes" and "crimes against
humanity" by the Nuremberg Tribunal. But even as the Allied court was sentencing Germany's wartime political and military
leaders to death for such acts, millions of Germans were being brutally driven from their homes.
The German Expellees is a well-written, concise introduction to a chapter of what James
J. Martin has characterized as "inconvenient history." These horrific events were not haphazard or spontaneous.
Rather, this mass "ethnic cleansing" of German civilians was official Allie policy. For too long, the victims
of this relatively unknown holocaust have remained largely forgotten and unmourned.

The Starving of Germany in 1919
I first read about the starvation of
Germans at the end of WWI in a book written by British historian Clive Ponting, he reported that close to 900.000
Germans died of starvation in 1918 and 1919.
policy” had begun in 1914. Winston Churchill, then First Lord of the Admiralty and one of the framers of
the scheme, admitted that it was aimed at “starving the whole population — men, women, and children,
old and young, wounded and sound — into submission.”
policy was in contravention of international law on two major points.
First, in regard to the character of the blockade, it violated
the Declaration of Paris of 1856, which Britain itself had signed, and which, among other things, permitted “close”
but not “distant” blockades. A belligerent was allowed to station ships near the three-mile limit
to stop traffic with an enemy’s ports; it was not allowed simply to declare areas of the high seas comprising
the approaches to the enemy’s coast to be off-limits.
point is related to contraband. Briefly, following the lead of the Hague Conference of 1907, the Declaration
of London of 1909 considered food to be “conditional contraband,” that is, subject to interception
and capture only when intended for the use of the enemy’s military forces.
In December 1918, the National Health Office in Berlin calculated that 763,000 persons had already died as a result
of the blockade by that time. In some respects, the armistice saw the intensification of the suffering, since
the German Baltic coast was now effectively blockaded and German fishing rights in the Baltic annulled.
The reason for
the food blockade to be kept in place after the end of the hostilities was aimed at forcing Germany to sign the
Versailles Treaty without any change on the strict conditions they were imposing. Today no one remembers it because
it was kept secret and there were no leaks to the western press while 900,000 German men, women and children died
because of the British naval blockade. Even today only a few non-Germans know the truth and American and British
historians, seems to have brushed off this most appalling crime as a footnote in history.
Even the founder of the Boy Scouts, Robert Baden-Powell,
naively expressed his satisfaction that the German race is being ruined; though the birth rate.
Although the war had ended in November 1918,
Germany was still under Allied blockade, which was ruthlessly enforced. The first state of Germany to benefit
from a lifting of the blockade would be communist-controlled Bavaria.
One must search diligently for historical references to the continued, devastating blockade. Diether Raff confirms
the peace-time blockade in his “A History of Germany – From the Medieval Empire to the Present”:
peace terms turned out to be extremely severe, far exceeding the worst fears of the German government… The
peace treaties of Brest-Litovsk and Bucharest were declared invalid and the food blockade around Germany was to
continue… Thus Germany’s capitulation was accomplished and an end set to four years of enormous bloodshed.
the blockade that finally drove the Central Powers to accept defeat,” says Richard Hoveth in his study of
the struggle on the high seas during World War I: “At first mild in its application, the blockade’s
noose gradually tightened until, with the American entry, all restraint was cast aside. Increasingly deprived of the means
to wage war, or even to feed her population, the violent response was insurrection; apathy and demoralization
the mute consequence of dashed hopes and thin potato soup.”
Basil Liddell Hart is quoted by Hoveth to the effect that, revolution and internal unrest notwithstanding, the
blockade was “clearly the decisive agency in the struggle.”
After confiscating the German merchant
navy, the Allies proceeded to confiscate German private property all over the world, contrary to all precedent
from previous wars when private property had been held in escrow until the ratification of peace treaties, when
it would revert to its legitimate owners.
The Allied powers reserved
the right to keep or dispose of assets belonging to German citizens, including companies they control [Article
167 B]. This wholesale expropriation would take place without any compensation to the owners [Articles 121 and
Germany remained responsible for the liabilities and loans on the assets that were taken from them. Profits, however,
remained in the hands of the Allies. Thus, private German property and assets were confiscated in China (Articles
129 and 132), Thailand (Articles 135-137), Egypt (Article 148), Liberia (Articles 135-140) and in many other countries.
Germany was also precluded from investing capital in any neighboring country and had to forfeit all rights “to whatever
title it may possess in these countries.
The Allies were given
free access to the German marketplace without the slightest tariff while products made in Germany faced high foreign
tariff barriers. Articles 264 to 267 established that Germany “undertakes to give the Allies and their associates
the status of most favored nations for five years.
already experiencing near famine conditions but it was at this moment that the Allies decided to confiscate a substantial
part of what was left of Germany’s livestock. The American representative at Versailles, Thomas Lamont,
recorded the event with some indignation:
“The Germans were made to deliver cattle, horses, sheep, goats, etc.,…
A strong protest came from Germany when dairy cows were taken to France and Belgium, thus depriving German children
Herbert Hoover, a mining engineer and future president of the United States – in 1900 defended Tianjin
from the assaults of the Boxer – was sent on a mission to help the starving population but he could do very
little because of the fury of the French and the British. Shipments had been delivered to Allies and to
neutrals, but British officials had refused to break their blockade to let cargoes go into Germany. Moreover,
Germany had failed to act on an agreement to turn over merchant ships before receiving food [eventually forced on the Weimar
government and showed no desire to pay for shipments in gold – a possibility that French financiers were
thought to be opposing so that their nation might get what gold there was as indemnity.
There is evidence that Wilson actually thought
the European powers would accept his 14 Points” and feed starving Germans now that the war was over but,
of course, that was not the case as discovered by Wilson’s humanitarian point man, Hoover. England’s
Prime Minister, Lloyd George, meanwhile, thought that the starvation was being ameliorated. He favored –
although quietly – feeding his ex-enemy.
In early March 1919, General Herbert Plumer, commander of the British Army of Occupation,
informed Prime Minister Lloyd George that his men were begging to be sent home; they could no longer stand the
sight of “hordes of skinny and bloated children pawing over the offal from the British camps”.
Finally, the Americans
and British overpowered French objections and at the end of March, the first food shipments began arriving in Hamburg.
But it was only in July, after the formal German signature to the Treaty of Versailles, that the Germans were
permitted to import raw materials and export manufactured goods.
On May 7 of that year, Count von Brockdorf-Rantzau had indignantly
referred to this fact in addressing the Versailles assembly:”The hundreds of thousands of noncombatants,”
the German chief delegate had stated, “who have perished since November 11, 1918, as a result of the blockade,
were killed with cold deliberation, after our enemies had been assured of their complete victory.”
The food blockade ended on July 12, 1919.
Besides the direct effects of the British blockade,
there are the possible indirect and much more sinister effects to consider. A German child who was ten years
old in 1918, and who survived, was twenty-two in 1930. Vincent raises the question of whether the miseries and
suffering from hunger in the early, formative years help account to some degree for the enthusiasm of German youth
for Nazism later on.
Incredibly, the last cheque covering reparations for WW1 was issued
by Angela Merkel in 2010.
DARK SECRETS OF THE D-DAY LANDINGS
Allied troops and vehicles are seen on Omaha Beach after it was secured after D-Day
Irish-American film director John Ford, famous for movies such as Stagecoach and The Grapes of Wrath, filmed
the D-Day landing at Omaha Beach from both ship and land, being wounded himself in the process. But very little
of his filming has been released to the public. The Eisenhower Centre reported in the 1990s that they were “unable
to find the film”.
This is because of what the film contained, we only ever see what’s approved, whether the invasion
of Normandy or anywhere else in the war.
The late historian Stephen
Ambrose, who was both Eisenhower and Richard Nixon’s official biographer, conceded that one third of all
the American combat GIs he’d ever interviewed (he’d interviewed well over 1000) said they had witnessed
unarmed, surrendering German soldiers with their hands up being shot (Bradley A. Thayer, Darwin, and international
relations p.190). And that’s just the ones prepared to confess it; let the enormity of it sink in for a
This indicates war crimes on a gigantic scale having been committed, all while we’ve
been brainwashed and deceived into thinking the Allies were ‘the good guys’. Many of the Allied troops
were openly encouraged not to take prisoners and no charges were ever brought against those who shot prisoners.

and for all.

US General Dwight D. Eisenhower, a war criminal of epic proportions boasted at the time of D-Day, “Once
and for all, the stage is being set for the beginning of the United Nations.” What he really meant is it was
being set for the New World Order.
After Pearl Harbor, the US state

With the Statue of Liberty
looming overhead, an 11-year-old boy named Jurgen sat huddled in his coat, alongside his family and few pieces
of luggage, as a cold wind blew off the Hudson River.
Island is best known as the former gateway for millions of immigrants entering the US, but in the winter of 1944,
the boy – Jurgen – and his family were about to be deported to Germany.
“We were processed on Ellis Island as illegal immigrants,” said
Jurgen, now 82. “In reality, we were kidnapped by the US government.”
Jurgen and his family were among thousands of Latin Americans of German origin who were rounded up by
their respective governments on orders from the US following the bombing of Pearl Harbor on 7 December 1941.
They were detained in accordance with a little-known US state department program. The Special
War Problems Division would orchestrate the detention of more than 4,000 Latin Americans from Germany, Japan and
Italy in internment camps in Texas and elsewhere, as well as localized detention centers in Latin America.
In all, 15 Latin American countries would
deport residents and citizens of German ancestry to detention centers in the United States, often without legal
recourse, according to a statement from the National Archives.
The internment of more than 120,000 Japanese Americans in camps has been recognized
by the US Congress, but the story of Latin Americans with origins in axis countries has been largely lost to history.
As the 73rd anniversary of the US entry
into the second world war approaches, fewer and fewer people remain who experienced firsthand the Immigration
and Naturalization Service internment camps in the US.
The second world war arrived swiftly for Jurgen’s family and other Germans
living in Costa Rica. Less than a month after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, Jurgen’s father was arrested by
Costa Rican police on 2 January 1942.
By the late 1930s,the FBI had begun to identify possible Nazi sympathizers, fearing Axis forces would
establish a foothold in Latin America. In the case of Costa Rica, the US Embassy in San José submitted
a list of names to be deported to the government, a move acknowledged in a State Department memo dated 15 November 1943.
Larger countries like Mexico, Chile and
Argentina resisted the demand to deport their citizens, but that was not an option for the small Central American
nation. In 1942, the US state department announced that it would boycott all Costa Rican products from German-owned
companies. Coffee accounted for more than half of the country’s exports between 1938 and 1945 – and
the coffee business was dominated by German firms, according to Gertrud Peters, an economic historian at the National
University of Costa Rica.
to ship goods to Germany because of the allied blockade, Costa Rica – among many other Latin American nations
– was forced to comply.
weeks after Jurgen’s father was detained, a letter arrived from the police informing his family that he
had been deported to the US, where he was being held in the country’s largest internment camp, in Crystal
The dusty Texas
town could not have been more different from the mild climate and green mountains of San José.
The 500-acre internment camp, which at its
peak would house nearly 3,400 detainees, was still largely under construction when Jurgen arrived in late 1943.
“The camp was built on an
old spinach field,” Jurgen said. “There was a statue of Popeye in the town.” The statue still
stands in Crystal City today.
rain the unpaved roads would become thick with mud, and Jurgen and the other children took to walking to the latrines
on short stilts to protect their shoes.
Jurgen said that the camp provided all the basics for his family, including simple accommodation in three-unit row
houses, communal latrines and food. His father, a businessman, found work laying asphalt for the camp’s roads
and, briefly, plucking feathers off turkeys.
Jurgen and his younger brother cut beet greens with a knife to earn $1 an hour, which the family could use to
order goods from the Montgomery Ward Catalog. The family was already saving up to buy coats for the next leg of
their journey back to Germany.
Besides keeping axis nationals from supposedly impeding the US war effort at home, Crystal City served
an important role for the US abroad: providing the country with a grab-bag of prisoners who could be traded for
Americans held by the Third Reich.
with the prospect of spending the remaining years of the war in detention, Jurgen’s family volunteered for
The family traveled
by train to Ellis Island before they boarded a Red Cross ship and sailed back to Europe. Allied and Russian forces
were beginning to close in on Germany. As Jurgen and his family filed off the boat in Lisbon, a line of American
prisoners waited to board, bound back to the United States.
Jurgen’s family eventually returned to Costa Rica in 1948. They were able to
recover their properties, but the same could not be said for many German families, whose businesses and land were
seized by the government and sold to pay down the national debt and subsidize populist land reforms.
After years in war-torn Germany,
what they found in Costa Rica was yet more conflict: following a disputed election in 1948, the country fell into
a brief civil war. That war brought about the rise of President José Figueres, the leader who abolished Costa
Rica’s army in 1948. The following year, Costa Rica declared its political neutrality.
The "Nazis" never "proclaimed Deutschland uber alles." That well-recognized term
-- often mistranslated to "Germany above all others" and erroneously believed
to be the title of the song in question -- is actually only the opening line of the "Deutschlandlied" (Song of Germany). The
song, which later became Germany's National Anthem, was penned in 1841 by August Heinrich Hoffmann
- nearly a half-century before Hitler was even born, and three decades before the German state (Reich)
was consolidated. Far from preaching "supremacy," the "Deutschlandlied" only represented
the hopes for the eventual unification of the 30 or so German states, nothing more!
Hitler hadn't even born yet
when the lyric "Deutschland uber alles" was coined. In fact, Hitler's mom, Klara, hadn't been born either!
Additionally, the phrase "Deutschland uber alles" - (Germany
above all things), is always, and I mean always, presented out-of-context, as if
to suggest that the Germans were boasting of their superiority to all other peoples. The following line
of the song clarifies and confirms that the anthem, far from being a song about conquest, was actually about the unified
defense of the small German states which, historically, have been relentlessly attacked by Romans,
Huns, Mongols and, most relevant to the song, the French. Here
is the full translation of the harmless and beautiful song of national defense and brotherhood:
1. Germany, Germany
above all * (Deutschland uber alles)
Above everything in the world * (in terms of love
When, always, for protection and defense
From the Maas to the Memel
From the Etsch to the Belt,
Germany, Germany above all
Above all in the world.
2. German women, German fidelity,
German wine and German song,
Shall retain, throughout the world,
Their old respected fame,
To inspire us to noble deeds
the length of our lives.
German women, German fidelity,
German wine and German song.
and right and freedom
For the German Fatherland;
Let us all strive to this goal
Brotherly, with heart and hand.
Unity and rights and freedom
Are the pledge of fortune
Prosper in this fortune's glory,
Prosper German fatherland.
These lyrics transcend ideology and political
systems. Indeed, it was the ultra-liberal, western puppet, Jewish-owned Wiemar Republic, not "the
Nazis," who declared the Deutschlandlied the National Anthem in 1922! But that won't stop the Marxist-Jewish
propagandists from continuing to dupe good men with never-ending disinformation about "the Nazis"
and the phrase "Deutschland uber alles."
Hitler's 'Barbarossa' Proclamation
On the morning of June 22, 1941, Reich Minister Joseph Goebbels announced
to the world the startling news that German forces, together with Finnish and Romanian troops, had struck against
the vast Soviet Union. On German radio he read Adolf Hitler's historic proclamation justifying the attack. Among
other things, he said that Stalin had massed some 160 divisions to strike westwards. In reality, more than 300
Soviet divisions were assembled against Germany and Europe. Hitler and his generals had thereby greatly underestimated
the Soviet danger -- a fateful miscalculation that ultimately proved catastrophic, and not just for Germany. To
the Italian leader Benito Mussolini, Hitler wrote that deciding to attack Soviet Russia was "the most difficult
decision of my life." And even though it meant engaging Germany in a two-front war, something he had specifically
warned against in Mein Kampf, this was a decision he never regretted. Hitler's strike against the Soviet
Union, code-named "Barbarossa," has often been called his worst single military blunder because the immense
clash he unleashed ended four years later, in May 1945, with his suicide in his Berlin command post, Soviet forces
hoisting the Red hammer-and-sickle banner above the Reichstag, and Germany's unconditional surrender. Hitler's
"Barbarossa" assault is often, but simplistically, portrayed as a treacherous and unprovoked surprise
attack against a peaceable ally, motivated by greed, dreams of empire, loathing of Russians and other Slavic peoples,
and visceral hatred of Communism. Today, 60 years later, German and Russian historians continue to grapple with
the origins of this mightiest military clash in history. Because Hitler's proclamation of June 22, 1941, helps
to explain the German leader's motives for turning against Soviet Russia, it is a document of historic importance.
The text is given here in full.
German people! National Socialists!
down with heavy cares, condemned to months-long silence, the hour has now come when at last I can speak frankly.
September 3, 1939, the German Reich received the British declaration of war there was repeated anew the British
attempt to thwart every beginning of a consolidation of Europe and thereby its rise, by fighting against whatever
power on the Continent was strongest at any given time. That is how, in times past, Britain ruined Spain in many
wars. That is how she conducted her wars against Holland. That is how later she fought France with the aid of
all Europe, and that is how, at the turn of the century, she began the encirclement of the then German Reich and,
in 1914, the [First] World War. It was only on account of its internal lack of unity that Germany was defeated in 1918.
The consequences were terrible.
After hypocritical declarations that the fight was solely against the Kaiser and his regime,
and once the German army had laid down its arms, the annihilation of the German Reich began according to plan.
While the prophecies
of a French statesman that there were two million Germans too many -- in other words, that this number would have
to be eliminated by hunger, disease or emigration -- were apparently being fulfilled to the letter, the National
Socialist movement began its work of unifying the German people, and thereby initiating the resurgence of the
Reich. This rise of our people from distress, misery and shameful disregard was in the form of a purely internal
renaissance. In no way did that affect, much less threaten, Britain.
Nevertheless, a new, hate-filled policy of encirclement
against Germany began immediately. Internally and externally there came into being that plot, familiar to all
of us, between Jews and democrats, Bolsheviks and reactionaries, with the sole aim of inhibiting the establishment
of the new German people's state, and of plunging the Reich anew into impotence and misery.
Apart from us, the hatred of this international
world conspiracy was directed against those nations that, like ourselves, were neglected by fortune and were obliged
to earn their daily bread in the hardest struggle for existence.
Above all, the right of Italy and Japan, just as much as
that of Germany, to share in the goods of this world was contested and in fact was formally denied. The alliance
of these [three] nations was, therefore, purely an act of self-protection in the face of the egoistic global combination
of wealth and power that threatened them. As early as 1936 [Winston] Churchill, according to statements by the
American General Wood before a committee of the American House of Representatives, declared that Germany was once
again becoming too powerful and must therefore be destroyed.
In the Summer of 1939 the time seemed to have come for Britain to
begin to realize its intended annihilation by repetition of a comprehensive policy of encirclement of Germany.
The plan of the campaign of lies staged for this purpose consisted in declaring that other people were threatened,
in tricking them with British promises of guarantees and assistance, and of getting them to go against Germany,
just as had happened prior to the [First] World War.
From May to August 1939, Britain thus succeeded in broadcasting to
the world that Lithuania, Estonia, Latvia, Finland and Bessarabia. as well as Ukraine, were being directly threatened
by Germany. Some of these states allowed themselves to be misled into accepting the promise of guarantee proffered
with these assertions, thus joining the new encirclement front against Germany. Under these circumstances I considered
myself entitled to assume responsibility, before my own conscience and before the history of the German people,
not only of assuring these countries or their governments of the falseness of these British assertions, but also
of setting at rest the strongest power in the east [the Soviet Union], by especially solemn declarations regarding
the limits of our interests.
National Socialists! At that time you probably all felt that this step was a bitter and difficult one
for me. The German people has never harbored hostile feelings against the peoples of Russia. However, for more
than two decades the Jewish Bolshevik rulers in Moscow had been endeavoring to set aflame not only Germany but
all Europe. At no time did Germany ever attempt to carry her National Socialist worldview into Russia, but on
the contrary Jewish Bolshevik rulers in Moscow unswervingly endeavored to foist their domination upon us and other
European nations, not only by ideological means but above all with military force. The consequences of the activity
of this regime were nothing but chaos, misery and starvation in all countries.
I, on the other hand, have been striving for
two decades, with a minimum of intervention and without destroying our production, to arrive at a new socialist
order in Germany, one that not only eliminates unemployment but also permits the productive worker to receive an
ever greater share of the fruits of his labor. The achievements of this policy of national economic and social
reconstruction -- which strove for a true national community by overcoming rank and class divisions -- are unique
in today's world.
It was therefore only with extreme difficulty that I brought myself in August 1939 to send my [Foreign]
Minister [von Ribbentrop] to Moscow in an endeavor there to counter the British encirclement policy against Germany.
I did this only out of a sense of responsibility toward the German people, but above all in the hope of finally,
in spite of everything, achieving long-term detente and of being able to reduce sacrifices that otherwise might
have been demanded of us.
While Germany solemnly affirmed in Moscow that the designated territories and countries -- with the exception
of Lithuania -- lay outside any German political interests, a special [supplementary] agreement was concluded
in case Britain were to succeed in inciting Poland into actually going to war against Germany. In this case, as well, German
claims were subject to limitations entirely out of proportion to the achievements of the German forces.
The consequences of this treaty, which I myself desired and which was concluded in the interests of the German
nation, were very severe, particularly for Germans living in the countries concerned. Far more than half a million
[ethnically] German men and women, all small farmers, artisans and workmen, were forced to leave their former
homeland practically overnight in order to escape from a new [Soviet] regime that at first threatened them with
boundless misery and sooner or later with complete extermination.
Nevertheless, thousands of Germans disappeared. It was impossible
ever to determine their fate, let alone their whereabouts. Among them were no fewer than 160 men of German Reich
citizenship. To all this I remained silent because I had to! For, after all, it was my one desire to bring about
a final relief of tension and, if possible, a permanent settlement with this [Soviet] state.
However, already during our advance
in Poland, Soviet rulers suddenly, and contrary to the treaty, also claimed Lithuania. The German Reich never
had any intention of occupying Lithuania, and not only failed to present any such demand to the Lithuanian government,
but on the contrary refused the request of the then Lithuanian government to send German troops to Lithuania in
that spirit for that purpose as inconsistent with the aims of German policy.
Despite all this I complied also with this fresh
Russian demand. However, this was only the beginning of continually renewed extortions, which have been repeated
The victory in Poland, which was won exclusively by German troops, prompted me to address yet another
peace offer to the Western powers [Britain and France]. It was rejected, due to the efforts of the international
and Jewish warmongers. Already at that time the reason for this rejection lay in the fact that Britain still had
hopes of being able to mobilize a European coalition against Germany, which was to include the Balkans and Soviet
Russia. It was therefore decided in London to send Mr. Cripps as ambassador to Moscow. He received clear instructions
under all circumstances to resume relations between Britain and Soviet Russia, and develop them in a pro-British
direction. The British press reported on the progress of this mission, except insofar as tactical reasons did
not impose silence.
In the fall of 1939 and the spring of 1940 the first results actually made themselves felt. As Russia
undertook to subjugate by armed force not only Finland but also the Baltic states, she suddenly motivated this
action by the assertion, as ridiculous as it was false, that she must protect these countries from an outside
threat, or forestall it. This could only be meant to apply to Germany, for no other power could even intervene in the Baltic
area, let alone go to war there. Still I had to be silent. However, those in power in the Kremlin immediately went
in the spring of 1940 Germany, in accordance with the so-called Friendship Treaty [of Sept. 28, 1939, with Soviet
Russia], withdrew her forces from the eastern frontier and, in fact, for the most part cleared these areas entirely
of German troops, a deployment of Russian forces at that time was already beginning, to an extent that could only
be regarded as a deliberate threat to Germany.
According to a statement that [Soviet Foreign Minister] Molotov
personally made at that time, there were 22 Russian divisions in the Baltic states alone already in the spring of
1940. Given that the Russian government always claimed that it had been called in by the local population, the
purpose of their presence there could only be a demonstration against Germany.
While our soldiers from May 10, 1940,
onward were breaking Franco-British power in the west, Russian military deployment on our eastern frontier was
continuing to an ever more menacing extent. From August 1940 onward I therefore considered it to be in the interest of
the Reich to no longer permit our eastern provinces, which moreover had been laid waste so often before, to remain
unprotected in the face of this tremendous deployment of Bolshevik divisions.
Thus, and just as intended by this British-Soviet
Russian cooperation, there came about the tying up of such strong [German] forces in the east that a radical conclusion
of the war in the west, particularly as regards aircraft, could no longer be vouched for by the German leadership.
This, however, was in line with the goals not only of British but also of Soviet Russian policy, for both Britain
and Soviet Russia intended to let this war go on for as long as possible in order to weaken all Europe and render
it ever more impotent.
Russia's threatened attack on Romania was in the last analysis equally intended to gain possession of
or, if possible, to destroy, an important base of the economic life of not only Germany, but of all of Europe.
Since 1933 the German Reich sought with boundless patience to win over states in southeastern Europe as trading
partners. We therefore also had the greatest interest in their internal consolidation and order. Russia's advance
into Romania and Greece's alliance with Britain threatened to quickly turn these regions as well into a general
theater of war.
Contrary to our principles and customs, and at the urgent request of the then Romanian government, which
was itself responsible for this development, I advised that it acquiesce to the Soviet Russian demands for the sake
of peace, and to cede [the province of] Bessarabia. The Romanian government believed, however, that it could answer
for this before its own people only if Germany and Italy in compensation would at least guarantee the integrity
of what still remained of Romania. I did so with heavy heart, above all because when the German Reich gives a
guarantee, that means it also abides by it. We are neither Englishmen nor Jews.
I still believe at this late hour to have served
the cause of peace in that region, albeit by assuming a serious obligation of our own. In order, however, finally
to solve these problems and achieve clarity concerning the Russian attitude toward Germany, as well as under pressure
of continually increasing mobilization on our eastern frontier, I invited Mr. Molotov to come to Berlin.
The Soviet Foreign
Minister [during their November 1940 meeting] then demanded Germany's clarification of or agreement to the following
Molotov's first question: Is the German guarantee for Romania also directed against Soviet Russia in case
of attack by Soviet Russia against Romania?
My answer: The German guarantee is a general one and is unconditionally binding upon
us. Russia, however, never declared to us that she had other interests in Romania beyond Bessarabia. The [Soviet]
occupation of Northern Bukovina was already a violation of this assurance. I did not therefore think that Russia could
now suddenly have more far-reaching intentions against Rumania.
Molotov's second question: Russia again feels itself menaced by
Finland, Russia is determined not to tolerate this. Is Germany ready not to give any aid to Finland, and above
all immediately to withdraw German relief troops marching through to Kirkenes?
My answer: As ever, Germany has absolutely no
political interests in Finland. A new war by Russia against the small Finnish nation could not, however, be regarded
any longer by the German government as tolerable, all the more so because we could never believe that Finland could
threaten Russia. Under no circumstances did we want another theater of war to arise in the Baltic.
question: Is Germany prepared to agree that Soviet Russia give a guarantee to Bulgaria and, in this regard, send
Soviet troops to Bulgaria, in connection with which he -- Molotov -- was prepared to state that the Soviets did
not intend on that account, for example, to depose the King?
My answer: Bulgaria is a sovereign state, and I have no
knowledge that Bulgaria had ever asked Soviet Russia for any kind of guarantee such as Romania had requested from
Germany. Moreover, I would have to discuss the matter with my allies.
Molotov's fourth question: Soviet Russia absolutely requires
free passage through the Dardanelles, and for her protection also demands occupation of a number of important bases
on the Dardanelles and the Bosporus. Is Germany in agreement with this or not?
My answer: Germany is prepared at any time to
agree to altering the Treaty of Montreux  in favor of the Black Sea states. Germany is not prepared to agree
to Russia's taking possession of bases on the Straits.
National Socialists! Here I adopted the only attitude that I could
adopt as the responsible leader of the German Reich, but also a conscientiously responsible representative of
European culture and civilization. The result was to increase the activity in Soviet Russia directed against the
Reich, above all, however, the immediate commencement of undermining the new Romanian state from within, and an
attempt to remove the Bulgarian government by propaganda.
With the help of confused and immature leaders of the Romanian
[Iron Guard] Legion a coup d'etat was staged in Romania whose aim was to overthrow Chief of State General Antonescu
and produce chaos in the country so as to eliminate thee legal authority and thus remove the precondition for
implementing the German guarantee. I nevertheless still believed it best to remain silent.
Immediately after the failure of this
undertaking, there was renewed reinforcement of concentrations of Russian troops on Germany's eastern frontier.
Panzer detachments and parachute troops were transferred in ever increasing numbers to dangerous proximity to the
German frontier. The German armed forces and the German homeland know that until a few weeks ago not a single German
tank or motorized division was stationed on our eastern frontier.
If any final proof was required for the coalition meanwhile formed
between Britain and Soviet Russia, despite all diversion and camouflage, the Yugoslav conflict provided it. While
I made every effort to undertake a final attempt to pacify the Balkans and, in sympathetic cooperation with the
Duce [Mussolini], invited Yugoslavia to join the Tripartite Pact, Britain and Soviet Russia jointly organized that
coup d'etat which, in a single night, removed the government that had been ready to come to agreement.
For today we can
inform the German nation that the Serb putsch against Germany did not take place merely under the British, but
primarily under Soviet Russian auspices. While we remained silent on this matter as well, the Soviet leaders now
went one step further. They not only organized the putsch, but a few days later [April 5, 1941] concluded that
well-known friendship treaty with those submissive creatures, which was meant to strengthen the Serbs in their
will to resist pacification of the Balkans, and to incite them against Germany. And this was no platonic intention:
Moscow demanded mobilization of the Serbian army.
Because, even then, I still believed it better not to speak out,
those in power in the Kremlin went still further: The government of the German Reich today possesses documentary
evidence proving that Russia, in order finally to bring Serbia into the war, gave her a promise to supply her, by way
of Salonika, with weapons, aircraft, munitions and other war materials against Germany. And this happened almost
at the very moment that I was advising Japanese Foreign Minister Matsuoka to bring about an easing of tensions
with Russia, still hoping thereby to serve the cause of peace.
Only the rapid advance of our incomparable divisions to Skoplje
[Skopje], as well as the capture of Salonika itself, frustrated the aims of this Soviet Russian-British plot.
Officers of the Serbian air force, however, fled to Russia and were there immediately received as allies.
It was only the
victory of the Axis powers in the Balkans that thwarted the plan to tie down Germany this summer in months of fighting
in southeastern Europe while meantime steadily completing the deployment of Soviet Russian armies and strengthening
their readiness for battle in order, finally, together with Britain and supported by anticipated American supplies,
to tie down and then defeat the German Reich and Italy.
Thus Moscow not only broke but miserably betrayed the stipulations
of our friendship treaty. All this was done while the rulers in the Kremlin, exactly as in the case of Finland
and Romania, up to the last moment pretended peace and friendship and issued seemingly harmless denials.
Although I have been obliged by circumstances
again and again to keep silent, the moment has now come when to continue as a mere observer would not only be
a sin of omission but a crime against the German people -- yes, even against the whole of Europe.
Today something like 160 Russian divisions
are standing at our frontier. For weeks there have been constant violations of this frontier, not only affecting
us but also in the far north [against Finland], as well as Romania. Russian airmen consider it sport nonchalantly
to overlook these frontiers, presumably to prove to us that they already feel themselves masters of these territories.
During the night of June 17 to 18 Russian patrols again penetrated into Reich territory, and could only be driven
back after prolonged exchange of fire.
This has brought us to the hour when it is necessary for us to counter this
plot of Jewish-British warmongers and equally the Jewish rulers of the Bolshevik center in Moscow.
At this moment a deployment of forces is taking place that, in its extent and scope, is the greatest the world
hitherto has seen. United with their Finnish comrades, the fighters of the victory of Narvik are standing in the
Northern Arctic. German divisions commanded by the conqueror of Norway [General Dietl], together with the heroes
of Finnish freedom under their Marshal [Mannerheim], are protecting Finnish soil. Formations of the German eastern
front extend from East Prussia to the Carpathians. German and Romanian soldiers are united under Chief of State
Antonescu from the banks of the Prut along the lower reaches of the Danube to the shores of the Black Sea.
The task of this
front, therefore, is not merely the protection of individual countries, but the safeguarding of Europe, and thereby
the salvation of all.
I therefore decided today to once again lay the fate and future of the German Reich and our
people in the hands of our soldiers.
May the Lord God help us especially in this fight!
Excerpts from a presentation by Lady Michele Renouf, speaking in Vancouver, reporting
on a recent “Identitarian” conference in Mexico during which the true events of World War II were discussed
in relation to understanding current affairs in modern day Europe. She spoke of “swindle-speak”
and the historical misappropriation of terms by the media and enemies of truth, providing the term “holocaust”
(a burnt whole offering) as a major example. She cited historical facts concerning the British military policy
of targeting civilians in the WWII air war against Germany, and she concludes that it was the Germans who, by
definition, were the true victims of an actual “holocaust”. She referred to Churchill’s
policy, to “baste” the Germans and burn them alive. Thus, she said, “the German people should
rightfully reclaim this term for themselves”. She then quoted Dennis Richards, Official Historian of the
R.A.F. who admitted that the British initiated the air war, targeting civilians, in order to goad Hitler into bombing
England in retaliation.
activism in terms of “Identitarianism”, from her own expertise in the advertising industry, she says
that in order to reach the general public with the message, it is important to not use the adversary’s terminology,
to not act and dress as they wish, and of not adopt archaic or nostalgic symbolism which the enemies of truth have
already demonized. She urges civility and creativity in order to appeal to the wider audience with one’s
message and opposes the “Neo-Nazi” look and methods.
I attended this presentation and was involved in the Q&A
segment, included in this video. One should not assume, however, that I necessarily subscribe to the “Identitarian”
viewpoint. My issue is and remains “Justice for Germans” with the caveat, that humanity as whole will
also benefit from understanding the truth about Hitler, National Socialism and World War II. I was, however,
much impressed with her presentation. My main reason for attending was my great respect for her, in light of all
of her activism on behalf of the German people and for Our Fallen over many years, and indeed, for all of humanity
against our common enemy or “our predator” as she calls them.Her contention that the “Holocaust”
happened to the German people echoes my own sentiments. This is also evidenced in the documentary film “Hellstorm“.
was delightful to re-acquaint myself with her since our last meeting nearly 4 years ago. We spent several hours
chatting privately after the event had concluded, and I shared with her some of what I have done in that time,
including the founding of The Truth and Justice for Germans Society. She read the mandate and constitution, and she endorses it, saying “it is long overdue” and she wondered “why
has it not been done before?” Other TJGS members were also in attendance and greatly appreciated her presentation.

as many German civilians as possible.
are the intellectual bodyguards of the State. They shape and defend the “official line” or interpretation
on the State’s wars, its presidential regimes, or other key historical events and public policies. As a
result they enjoy high esteem and recognition in the mainstream media and academia. As defenders of the status
quo they frequently attack and label their critics as “conspiracy theorists,” “revisionists,”
“isolationists,” “appeasers,” “anti-intellectuals,” or other boogie men, rather
than engage in civil discourse or discussion.
British documents as referred to by David Irving (and many other
Non-Court Historians), and many quotes from the British military leadership confirm that the British and later
also the Americans, deliberately targeted civilians, contrary to International Law. (See Dehousing Paper) Further proof of this, however, is in the routine use of Delay-Action Bombs by the Allies.
Many of the bombs which were dropped upon German cities contained a perfidious mechanism which, rather than exploding
immediately upon contact with the ground or with buildings, were designed to explode hours or days later, thereby
causing harm to survivors when they had emerged from their bomb shelters and cellars. They also caused serious
danger to the Fire Fighters and Rescue personnel, sometimes killing them or making their duties virtually impossible
to carry out. Both the British and Americans had these types of ordinances in their arsenals and also and frequently
deployed them. Yes, this is how the so-called “good guys” and “liberators” waged war.
The chemical-mechanical fuse devices contained in them were housed in the rear portion of a
standard aerial bomb. However, added protection using artificial materials (celluloids) were built in to prevent
an immediate explosion upon impact. A glass ampule, located in the rear section, which contained acetone would
instead break open upon impact and then slowly begin to dissolve a series of the protective celluloid plates or
barriers, which barricaded the explosive materials, eventually triggering the firing pin and then finally
detonating the bomb at a later point in time. The time of detonation was dependant upon how long it took for the
acetone to dissolve the celluloid barriers. The speed of this chain of could also be varied according to the number
or thickness of the barriers and / or the strength of the acetone contained in the glass ampule. Thus, they
could be designed to detonate in any time frame ranging from several hours to a week. These Delay-Action Bombs
can only be regarded as murderous weapons of terror and mass destruction.
Infos auf Deutsch, siehe: http://de.metapedia.org/wiki/Alliierter_Bombenterror)
Many such bombs, however, did not explode at all and are still being dug up
today on German soil by farmers or in the course of road construction, the building of railways or the digging
of tunnels for underground public transportation lines, etc. These have also frequently been found in rivers and
canals. These bombs are, however, no less deadly than the day they were dropped, over 70 years ago. As a result,
and to this day, “bomb alarms” are still a common occurrence in German cities and towns, resulting
in sections of towns to be evacuated, roads to be closed and rail transportation to be halted for hours while highly
trained bomb-disposal experts attempt to diffuse them, move them, or to detonate them on the spot. They could,
however, under the right conditions, still explode spontaneously.
unexploded German ordinance on British soil is, by comparison, a more rare occurrence. Whenever one is found,
it is usually in London. This speaks to the fact that the German side did not use Delay-Action Bombs, as claimed
by Wikipedia (without citation) for example, and also to the fact that England was never bombed to anywhere near the same extent as
Germany. Nonetheless, when a single unexploded World War II German bomb is discovered in England, as was
recently the case in London on March 22, 2015, it is an international “sensation” and news reports of
this are carried world wide, apparently as proof of the barbarism of the “evil Nazis”. See my
web search for news reports here:
By contrast, it is rarely reported in the international media when
unexploded British or American bombs are found on German soil. Why? Perhaps because it is such a common occurrence.
Perhaps because they don’t want the world to know and to understand the full extent of the criminal Allied
Terror Bombing Campaign and the types of bombs that were used. Or perhaps because, “it happened to evil Germans
who deserved it, and so who cares”? One recent exception, however, appeared in the Wall Street Journal:
German City Evacuated After Unexploded World War II Bomb Is Found – Officials cleared 20,000 people from area surrounding Cologne’s Mülheim bridge (WSJ |May 27th,
“Seven decades since the end of World War II, unexploded bombs from are still found regularly throughout Germany,
a legacy of the Allies’ sustained bombing campaign aimed at destroying German industry [a
big lie, as exposed in the my previous posts] and breaking domestic morale. In Cologne alone, 25 bombs on
average are discovered and deactivated each year, so far without causing any incident, city officials say.
and midsize German cities were subject to bombing campaigns in the later phase of the war, leading to casualties
estimated between 305,000 and 600,000 people, according to various historical records. [These are typical, deliberately
downsized BRD stats]. In May 1942, Cologne became the first German urban area to face mass-scale bombing [refers
to the Area Bombing Directive of Feb. 14th, 1942 and does not consider earlier bombings of German cities] when British Royal Air Force bombers dropped
more than 1,400 tons of ordnance on the city. Allied forces bombarded the city 262 times during the war,
city spokeswoman Sabine Wotzlaw said.”

In the thick of WWII, Allied pilots dropped some 2 million tons (estimates vary) of bombs on German soil. Most of the bombs exploded, but up to 15 percent were duds and failed to detonate
on impact. Today, these unexploded relics lie waiting. Experts figure that up to 250,000 live bombs remain scattered around Germany, and barely a week goes by without a bomb squad being summoned to one of them—unearthed,
perhaps, by a hapless construction worker or a farmer tending to his fields.
take precautions, but there are still accidents. Bombs go off suddenly and sometimes people die. Though most of
the Great War’s combatants are long dead, WWII’s casualty list keeps growing. Over the last few years,
the presence of unexploded ordnance (UXO) has become a more pressing problem. As WWII bombs grow old, their stabilizing
agents begin to decompose and they become sensitive to the tiniest of tremors. As this happens, the risk of spontaneous

either. Berlin, which was bombed to shit between 1940 and 1945, hosts an estimated 2,000 to 4,000 unexploded bombs (in addition to loads of unexploded grenades, rockets, artillery shells, mortars, mines, etc.) with around
ten to 15 live bombs found in the capital each year…

Excerpts from a presentation by historian David Irving from the late 1980s / early 90s in Germany in which he
explains how it was the British who started the aerial bombing and the targeting of civilians, and how it was Churchill,
from the beginning, who made it British policy, knowing full well that it was a war crime. The intent was to eventually
force Hitler to retaliate in kind. Hitler, himself, had always opposed the targeting of civilian populations, even
long before the war. Moreover, this was a deliberate policy of subverting Hitler’s attempts to make peace
by instigating hatred of the Germans in England. Irving provides some details of Hitler’s peace initiatives
and terms. It is well documented that Hitler and had always sought friendship with England. It was the British
war mongers in Parliament, however, who long before 1939 had been instigating for war. Statistics are also provided
here which demonstrate how little damage was actually done to German industry and military production as compared
to the monstrous destruction of German cities and towns, resulting in heavy civilian casualties.
Still more to follow on this topic!
It is widely believed to this day that the Germans instigated the aerial bombing campaign
against European and British cities, and thus “got what they deserved” in kind. Often cited are the
German bombings of Warsaw and Rotterdam. These two instances of bombings are not in dispute, however, the
context must be considered. The details are seldom discussed, and hence, little known. The rules of warfare must
also be considered. The deliberate targeting of civilians was indeed a “war crime”. The Hague conventions
tolerated the bombing of cities IF they were under military occupation (ie “defended”), which was the
case with both Warsaw or Rotterdam.
The Hague Conventions for Land Warfare
(which Germany was a signatory to) stated:
The attack or bombardment of towns, villages, habitations or buildings which are not defended, is prohibited.
The Commander of an attacking force, before commencing
a bombardment, except in the case of an assault, should do all he can to warn the authorities.
In sieges and bombardments all necessary steps should be taken to
spare as far as possible edifices devoted to religion, art, science, and charity, hospitals, and places where
the sick and wounded are collected, provided they are not used at the same time for military purposes.
The besieged should indicate these buildings or places by some particular and visible signs, which should
previously be notified to the assailants.
In the cases of both Warsaw and Rotterdam, the bombing was not
intentionally to target civilians. Indeed, Hitler had long campaigned against such actions in warfare and at the
commencement of hostilities with Poland, he gave explicit orders to the Luftwaffe to not target civilians, and
they adhered strictly to this order. In Warsaw, however, the Polish army retreated into the city and turned
it into fortress. In essence, they took the city and the population as a hostage. They were given several ultimatums
to surrender, with reasonable time to do so, but they refused. Flyers were also dropped from the air to warn civilians
of the imminent danger. All prudent measures were taken. While civilians indeed died, they were not intentionally
targeted. The aim of the bombing was to force a surrender of the Polish forces which were holed up there. That
was not, according to the international law, a “war crime”. Here, one may also question why Hitler
felt compelled to attack Poland in the first place. I have covered this in numerous past posts, however, to understand
this fully, I recommend reading:
100 Documents on the Origin of the War (German White Book) pdf
The situation in Rotterdam was very similar. A group of Dutch resistance
fighters that fought at the Grebbeberg took refuge in Rotterdam. This eventually resulted in a German ultimatum
that if the Grebbeberg resistance did not cease, Rotterdam would be bombed. The resisters finally complied and
the bombing raid was to called off at the last minute. However, there was a communications problem. Ground flares
intended to call off the attack were not seen or by one of the inbound bomber formations and Rotterdam was thus
inadvertently bombed. About 900 people died and 80,000 people became homeless as a result of ensuing fires which
were NOT caused by incendiaries, but rather, by hazardous materials stored on the ground. Mainstream history confirms
“Student radioed to postpone the planned attack.
When the message reached KG 54’s command post, the Kommodore, Oberst Walter Lackner, was already approaching
Rotterdam and his aircraft had reeled in their long-range aerials. Haze and smoke obscured the target; to ensure
that Dutch defences were hit Lackner brought his formation down to 2,300 ft (700 m). German forces on the Noordereiland
fired flares to prevent friendly fire — after three aircraft of the southern formation had already unloaded,
the remaining 24 from the southern bomber formation under Oberstleutnant Otto Höhne aborted their attack.
The larger formation came from the north-east, out of position to spot red flares launched from the south side of
the city, and proceeded with their attack. Fifty-four He 111s dropped low to release 97 tonnes (213,848 lb) of bombs,
mostly in the heart of the city.
Why the formation had not received the
abort order sooner remains controversial. Oberst Lackner of the largest formation claimed that his crews were
unable to spot red flares due to bad visibility caused by humidity and dense smoke of burning constructions and
subsequently needed to decrease altitude to 2,000 feet. But the red flare, which Lackner failed to see, might
have also been used by the Germans to show their location in the city to avoid friendly fire. An official German
form designated red as the colour for that purpose.”
While the details of what actually happened versus what was supposed
to happen (or not happen) remain somewhat sketchy, it was clearly a military vs military attack, and not intended
to deliberately target the civilian population of Rotterdam. This, however, will inevitably beg the question “why
did the Germans invade peaceful, neutral Holland? Surely they had no right to do so!” This question
must be answered with another question. Why did the neutral Dutch permit the RAF to use its airspace to attack
the German cities of the Ruhr Valley? Why did they not defend their stated neutrality? The German White Book
Nr.8 – The Sole Responsibility of England for the Bombing War (1943) indicates numerous instances of British
bombers attacking German cities in the Ruhr from the direction of neutral Belgium and Holland. To my knowledge,
this book is not available in an English translation.
Indeed, the British Expeditionary Force planned to attack Germany through these
countries, which were apparently not opposed, while still maintaining their declaration of neutrality. Germany
was therefore not obliged to respect their proclaimed neutrality in defence of its own sovereign territory.
It must also be noted that Germany did not bomb the city of Paris (or other major French cities). Why
not? Because the French declared them to be “free cities”. In other words not occupied by the
French military or “not defended”. Thus they and their cultural artifacts, architecture etc
were protected and would not be bombed by the Luftwaffe. That, however, did not dissuade the British and Americans
from bombing Paris and other French cities later, thereby destroying cultural artifacts and killing many thousands
of French civilians in the name of “liberation”.
bombing of German cities started well before Churchill even became Prime Minister, on Sept. 5th, 1939 at Wilhelmshaven.
Then resumed again with ferocious intensity in the Spring of 1940 and increased with the advent of the unelected
Churchill’s rise to power.
“On 3 September 1939
the French and British empires had declared war on Germany and England’s Royal Air Force began attacking German
warships along the German coast with the North Sea. The attacks by the Royal Air Force (RAF) on German cities began
with the attack on Wilhelmshaven on 5 September 1939. Eight months later, on the 9th of May 1940 began the German
offensive in the West. On the 11th of May the British Cabinet decided to unleash the Bomber Command on the air
war against the German hinterland. The following night British planes aimlessly dropped bombs for the first time
on residential areas of Mönchengladbach-Rheydt. And from then on made such attacks on cities in the Ruhr
area night after night. Up to the 13th of May 1940, i.e. two days later, the German side registered a total of
51 British air attacks on non-military targets plus 14 attacks on military targets such as bridges, railway tracks,
defense and industrial plants.The first carpet bombing of a German city was in the night of the 15th to 16th of
May 1940 in Duisburg. After that the RAF committed repeated air attacks on German cities. The night of the 24th
of August 1940 – bombs meant to be dropped on the Thameshaven oil storage depot and on the Short’s
factory at Rochester, by mistake or simply because they were randomly unloaded in order to escape fighters, fell on the
City of London and nine other districts inside the Greater London area. Incendiaries lit fires in Bethnal Green,
and St.Giles’ Church in Cripplegate was damaged. Oxford Street department stores were damaged. Nine people
were killed and 58 injured. On the 25th of August 1940, British bombers attacked Berlin by night, and indeed not
even to target important military targets, because the Royal Airforce (RAF) was not even capable, having not developed
any bomb-targeting devices. On the 6th to the 7th of September 1940, a German air raid on London took place –
but specifically on military targets such as ports, railway stations, war factories and power stations. Crews
were expressly prohibited to drop their bombs on residential areas, because thereby, no ‘war deciding’
successes could be expected.”

this for his assistance and am awaiting a reply. I will update this post if and when I receive the requested info).
Regarding England, the fact is, that Germany endured a solid 5 months of bombing of its cities
and civilians before responding in kind. The city of Coventry endured a mere 380 dead. While regrettable, that
was absolutely minuscule in comparison to the bombing of hundreds of German cities and towns, and the casualties
which the German side endured by this unprovoked, criminal British policy of targeting civilians.
For those who read German, I also recommend reading:
ERICH KERN. Verbrechen
am deutschen Volk. Eine Dokumentation alliierter Grausamkeiten. 1964. VERLAG K. W. SCHÜTZ • GÖTTINGEN
[J4G Exclusive, courtesy of Mike Walsh] During World War Two more bombs by weight were
dropped on the city of Berlin than were released on the whole of Great Britain during the entire war. All German
towns and cities above 50,000 populations were from 50% to 80% destroyed. The great city of Dresden, dubbed the
Florence of Northern Europe, was incinerated. Up to 300,000 civilians lost their lives.
Hamburg, one of Europe’s greatest and most beautiful cities, was torched. Genghis Khan
would have exulted in the methodical razing of an entire city and the destruction of its population. The only surviving
building was the city’s cathedral. This ecclesiastical wonder was saved not because of its spiritual symbolism.
It survived only because it served the Royal Air Force (RAF) and United States Air Force (USAF) as a bombing run
By no stretch of the imagination could such total destruction be
written off as legitimate. Entire areas of Hamburg and other European cities, that offered no war value, were
similarly destroyed. Furthermore, such total destruction of infrastructure and innocent lives cannot be dismissed
by the ‘they started it first’ false argument. Nor can it be dismissed as a tit-for-tat
bombing. In this one German city alone, over just a few nights in July 1943, the number of dead exceeded the
entire military and civilian death toll of Britain during the war.
September 1941 conceded that just 2% of (British) real estate had been destroyed by German bombing. The article
included a note that commented on ‘the furious pace at speculators who were buying the bombed sites for
a song’. This situation remained largely unchanged until the end of the war. Germany never engaged in blanket
or terror bombing, nor was it Germany that dropped atomic bombs on two of Japan’s most beautiful cities.
Cities that incidentally were the only two Christian cities in Japan.
Operation Gomorrah. July 1943. Following the RAF raids the volcanic flames were hurled 5,000 feet into the sky,
four times the height of New York’s Empire State Building. With the consequential gases, they rose as high
again, and caused meteorological reaction high as the earth’s stratosphere.
Between 1940 and 1945, sixty-one German cities with a total population of 25 million souls were destroyed
or devastated in a bombing campaign initiated by the English government. Destruction on this scale had no other
purpose than the indiscriminate mass murder of as many German people as possible quite regardless of their civilian
status. One of the campaign’s main aims was to reduce the German population (genocide) and furthermore reduce
its capacity to become a trade rival to Britain. The bombing campaign led to Luftwaffe bombing of Britain in retaliation.
This resulted in 60,000 British civilians’ deaths and 86,000 injured.
MOST UNCIVILIZED FORM OF WARFARE
The eminent British war historian

enthusiasm for the deliberate destruction of civilian populations could be traced back to his comment: “The
air opened paths along which death and terror could be carried far behind the lines of the actual enemy; to women,
children, the aged, the sick, who in earlier struggles would perforce have been left untouched.” –

The German chancellor,
on the other hand, was repelled by the mere thought of targeting civilians. “The construction of bombing
airplanes would soon be abandoned as superfluous and ineffective if bombing as such were branded as an illegal
barbarity. If, through the Red Cross Convention, it definitely turned out possible to prevent the killing of a
defenseless wounded man or prisoner, then it ought to be equally possible, by analogous convention, and finally to
stop the bombing of equally defenseless civil populations.” – German Chancellor Adolf Hitler.
“Hitler only undertook the bombing of British civilian targets reluctantly three months
after the RAF had commenced bombing German civilian targets. Hitler would have been willing at any time to stop
the slaughter. Hitler was genuinely anxious to reach with Britain an agreement confining the action of aircraft
to battle zones.” – J. M Spaight. CB. CBE. Bombing Vindicated, p.47. Principal Secretary to the
The first breach of international law: “This raid
on the night of May 11 1940, although in itself trivial, was an epoch-marking event since it was the first deliberate

forces. Their flight marked the end of an epoch which had lasted for two and one-half centuries.” –

“The first ‘area’
air attack of the war was carried out by 134 British bombers on the German city of Mannheim on the 16 December

THE TRUTH HIDDEN FROM THE BRITISH PUBLIC
“It is one of the greatest triumphs of modern emotional engineering that, in spite
of the plain facts of the case which could never be disguised or even materially distorted, the British public,
throughout the Blitz Period (1940 – 1941), remained convinced that the entire responsibility for their sufferings
it was undergoing rested on the German leaders.”

the public mind was conditioned prior to and during a period of unparalleled strain.” – Advance

bombing of the English city Coventry, a city with a manufacturing base is often claimed to be ‘our Dresden’.
It is difficult to imagine a more ignorant riposte. “The inhabitants of Coventry, for example, continued
to imagine that their sufferings were due to the innate villainy of Adolf Hitler without a suspicion that a decision,
splendid or otherwise, of the British War Cabinet, was the decisive factor in the case.” – F.
J. P Veale. Advance to Barbarism, P.169.
“One of the most unhealthy
features of the bombing offensive was that the War Cabinet – and in particular the Secretary for Air, Archibald
Sinclair (later Lord Thurso), felt it necessary to repudiate publicly the orders which they themselves had given
to Bomber Command.” – R. H. S Crosman. Labor Minister of Housing. Sunday Telegraph, October 1 1961.
“Is terror bombing now part of our policy? Why is it that the people of this country
who are supposed to be responsible for what is going on, are the only people who may not know what is being done
in their name?”
“On the other hand, if terror bombing be
part of our policy, why was this statement put out at all? I think we shall live to rue the day we did this, and
that it (he bombing of Dresden) will stand for all time as a blot on our escutcheon.” – Richard
This Member of Parliament was referring to the Associated Press
Correspondent of Supreme Allied Headquarters in Paris. This had gloated. “This unprecedented assault
in daylight on the refugee-crowded capital, fleeing from the Soviet Red Army tide in the East. The report had
been widely broadcast in America, and by Paris Radio. It was suppressed in Britain for fear of public revulsion.”
“Thus, in a minute dated 28 February 1943, Sir Archibald Sinclair explained to Sir
Charles Portal, Chief of the Air Staff, that it was necessary to stifle all public discussion on the subject because
if the truth had been disclosed in response to the inquiries being made by influential political and religious
leaders, their inevitable condemnation would impair the morale of the bomber crews and consequently their bombing
efficiency.” – F. J. P Veale, Advance to Barbarism, p.29.
CLASS TARGETED FOR HIGH KILL RATIOS
“The third and last
phase of the British air offensive against Germany began in March 1942 with the adoption of the Lindemann Plan
by the British War Cabinet, and continued with undiminished ferocity until the end of the war in May, 1945.
The bombing during this period was not, as the Germans complained, indiscriminate. On the
contrary. It was concentrated on working class houses because, as Professor Lindemann maintained, a higher percentage
of bloodshed per ton of explosives dropped could be expected from bombing houses built close together, rather than
by bombing higher class houses surrounded by gardens.” – Advance to Barbarism, F. J. P Veale,
British Author and Jurist.

areas in German cities. I am a Cromwellian – I believe in ‘slaying in the name of the Lord!” –

CHILDREN TO BE SLAIN AS A PRIORITY
“They (the British
Air Chiefs) argued that the desired result, of reducing German industrial production, would be more readily achieved
if the homes of the workers in the factories were destroyed; if the workers were kept busy arranging for the burial
of their wives and children, output might reasonably be expected to fall.” – Advance to Barbarism,

19 Pics: WW2: Soviets dressed as Germans killing people & Faked Photos
– Stalin’s Order # 0428: the ‘Torch-Men-Order’
is a really excellent article. This guy takes a close look at photos from WW2 and shows you real ones and faked
ones. This collection of real and fake photos is the best I’ve seen from WW2. I hope we can get more
such studies to look at closely.
becomes clear that certain photos have been used and modified. One that really stands out for me as nonsensical
is the one of them about to hang the guy from a German tank’s gun. Why would you use an important and expensive
piece of equipment for such a trivial purpose? If you are going to hang someone, just hang from from a nearby
tree. Why a tank? What if you damaged your weapon? It is a precision weapon. The last thing you’d want to
mess with is the gun which is what’s keeping you alive.
The mention of removing the background to hide the location is an important point. I’ve read that
the CIA can take almost any photograph and tell you where it was taken – simply by analysing shadows, etc.
It is important to see the points of how these guys were faking it as Germans,
while using Jewish communist techniques of execution.
A very important point also is this: Since this is 1941, why would the Germans destroy infrastructure
that they will benefit from? It is clear that throughout the time that the Germans advanced, that it was the Soviets
who were using scorched earth tactics. In fact, the Russians used scorched earth tactics against Napoleon.
In Wikipedia we read:
Grande Armée was a very large force, numbering 680,000 soldiers (including 300,000 of French departments).
It was the largest army ever assembled in the history of warfare up to that point. Through a series of long marches Napoleon pushed the army rapidly through Western Russia in an attempt to bring the Russian army to battle, winning a number of minor engagements and a major battle at Smolensk in August. Napoleon hoped the battle would win the war for him, but the Russian army slipped away and continued the retreat,
leaving Smolensk to burn. French plans to quarter at Smolensk were abandoned, and Napoleon pressed his army on after the Russians.As the Russian army fell back, the Cossacks applied scorched-earth tactics, burning down villages, towns and crops and forcing the French to rely on a supply system that was incapable of
feeding the large army in the field.
So even in Napoleon’s day
the Russians were using scorched earth tactics against the invaders. In fact the Russians even set fire to their
capital Moscow! That’s how determined they were.
So switching to WW2, it is totally consistent that ALL scorched earth tactics used during the time
of the German advance had to have come from the Soviets.
NB: Note also the cremation photo that was faked. That relates to the so-called Jewish holocaust! All nonsense
– and we’ll get to that topic more closely. Jan]
Here’s the excellent article:-
Order # 0428 – the ‘Torch-Men-Order’
Many ask, “How can [so-called] ‘Holocaust Deniers’ and Revisionists,
deny the photographic evidence of German Soldiers killing civilians?”
The so-called, proof in pictures.
What is Order #0428 – commonly known as?
[now confirmed by todays Russian Government]
Order #0428, commanded on the 17th November 1941, declared that Partisans wearing German uniforms, particularly
those of the Waffen-SS, were to destroy all settlements within a swathe of about 40 – 60 km depth from the
main battle lines and to ruthlessly kill the civilian population. With these tactics it was important to leave
a few survivors, who would report the supposed “German Atrocities.”
This method of warfare was also confirmed by German soldiers who captured many Russian Partisans wearing German
Almost daily, reports were being issued
by the media, that the German forces advanced with the declared politics and aim of a “scorched earth”
approach, which devastated the vast Russian lands in the most horrific way.
Apart from the logical fact that no invader destroys the very infrastructure necessary for his advancement in an
occupied territory, Germany’s Program, called “Ostacker Programm” (Eastern fields program) was
designed to restore the devastated lands.

[in progress] “Fackelmänner
Befehl” (torch men-order) confirmed.
Russian Security Service FSB published Stalin’s order No.
0428, as follows;
‘Deutsche Greueltaten’ – translation – ‘German Atrocities’
“All settlements, in which German troops are found, up to a depth of 40 – 60km from the
main lines of battle, are to be destroyed and set on fire, also 20-30km from the roads. For the destruction of
the settled areas in the required radius, the air force will be made available, also artillery and rocket-launchers
will be used extensively, as well as intelligence units, skiers and Partisan divisions, who are equipped with
bottles with flammable liquid. These hunting expeditions in their activities of destruction are to be dressed to the
greatest extent in German soldier’s uniforms and uniforms of the Waffen-SS looted from the German army.
This will ignite hatred toward all fascist occupiers and make the
conscription of partisans from the outlaying areas of fascist territories easier. It is important to have survivors
who will tell about “German atrocities”. For this purpose every regiment is to form hunter-units of
about 20- 30 men strong with the task to detonate and incinerate the villages. We have to select brave fighters
for this action of destruction of settled areas. These men will be especially recommended to receive bravery awards
when working in German uniforms behind enemy lines and destroying those settlement outposts. Among the population
we have to spread the rumor that the Germans are burning the villages in order to punish the Partisans.”
If the Jewish Bolsheviks were purposely sacrificing people in these ways,
to create anti-German propaganda, there is no doubt they would have photographed these horrors, to drive the message
No doubt, from this time originate the “famous” atrocity Photos
of mass-executions which are the favourites in the press.
Furthermore, this does not align
with the Official ‘Holocaust’ narrative, of the Germans going to great extent to conceal their crimes
by burning records and millions of bodies, which is one of the excuses as to why the Allies could not find any
evidence to the purported mass gassings of internees. The ‘Official’ narrative would have us believe
that the Germans (in the middle of war) hunted through millions of documents to dispose of records by burning
them, but leave hundreds of incriminating photographs accessible for the world to see?
Additionally, the single shot to the back of the neck/head, was the method
and training of the Cheka and NKVD, for singular executions.
The fear and hate hysteria created from
imagery, was not just limited to performing in front of the camera… simply manipulating the imagery by
superimposing over innocent photo’s for the desired effect, was also utilised… here is just a small
example of many.
Fraudulent Nazi Quotations
By Mark Weber
quotations attributed to Hitler and other Third Reich leaders have been widely circulated for years. Such quotes are often
used by polemicists -- of both the left and the right -- to discredit their ideological adversaries by showing that Nazis
held similar views. This tactic works because people have been educated to believe that anything Hitler and other Nazi leaders
thought or said was malevolent, wrong-headed or evil, and that no reasonable or ethical person could hold similar views.
Here's a look at a few of the many remarks falsely attributed
to Hitler and other top Nazis.
Goebbels: 'Truth is
the Enemy of the State'
Hitler's propaganda chief,
Joseph Goebbels, supposedly said:
"If you tell a lie
big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time
as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes
vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie,
and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State."
Rush Limbaugh, the popular American radio commentator, is just one of the many influential Americans who has cited
this quotation. During a May 2007 radio broadcast he claimed that these remarks are "from Hitler's war room, the Nazi
spinmeister-in-chief, Joseph Goebbels," who was "speaking for his cronies in the Nazi party." Limbaugh went
on to claim that American "Democrat Party" leaders were using "a version" of Goebbels' technique to
try to "repress dissent." And in January 2011 US Congressman Steve Cohen, a Democratic party politician of Tennessee,
accused Republicans of propagating "a big lie, just like Goebbels" about a proposed national health care plan.
In fact, Goebbels' views were quite different than what this
fraudulent quote suggests. He consistently held that propaganda should be accurate and truthful.
In an address given in September 1934 in Nuremberg, he said: "Good propaganda does
not need to lie, indeed it may not lie. It has no reason to fear the truth. It is a mistake to believe that people cannot
take the truth. They can. It is only a matter of presenting the truth to people in a way that they will be able to understand.
A propaganda that lies proves that it has a bad cause. It cannot be successful in the long run."
In an article written in 1941, he cited examples of false British wartime claims, and
went on to charge that British propagandists had adopted the "big lie" technique that Hitler had identified and
condemned in his book Mein Kampf. Goebbels wrote: "The English follow the principle that when one lies, one
should lie big, and stick to it. They keep up their lies, even at the risk of looking ridiculous."
Hitler and Gun Control
In a speech, sometimes said to have been delivered in 1935, Hitler is supposed to have exclaimed: "This year
will go down in history! For the first time, a civilized nation has full gun registration! Our streets will be safer, our
police more efficient, and the world will follow our lead into the future!"
This quote has been popular with Americans who defend the constitutional right to "keep and bear arms."
It's cited to discredit those who support restrictions on firearms ownership and use. It's also cited to support the often-made
charge that Hitler and his government curtailed gun ownership in Germany, and confiscated weapons held by private citizens.
The truth is rather different. When Hitler and his National
Socialist Party took power in early 1933, they inherited a somewhat restrictive firearms law that the liberal-democratic
"Weimar" government had enacted five years earlier. In 1938 Hitler's government revised the earlier law by loosening
those restrictions, thereby enhancing the rights of Germans to own weapons. The most thorough confiscation of firearms ever
imposed on Germans was carried out at the end of the Second World War by the occupation forces of the United States and
other victorious Allied powers.
Hitler on 'Law and
Hitler is supposed to have said during a speech
in 1932, shortly before he became Chancellor:
of our cities are in turmoil. The universities are filled with students rebelling and rioting. Communists are seeking to
destroy our country. Russia is threatening us with her might and the Republic is in danger. Yes, danger from within and
without. We need law and order! Yes, without law and order our nation cannot survive ... Elect us and we shall restore law
and order. We shall, by law and order, be respected among the nations of the world. Without law and order our Republic shall
This quotation, which is meant to embarrass and
discredit those who support "law and order," was especially popular with younger Americans during the late 1960s
and early 1970s. It appeared on posters and in the 1971 movie "Billy Jack."
In his many election campaign speeches in 1932 Hitler stressed the themes of justice, freedom, jobs
and national unity -- not "law and order." German universities in 1932 were not "filled with students rebelling
and rioting." In fact, German students were among the most fervent supporters of Hitler and his National Socialist movement.
Goering on Culture
Hermann Goering, a high-ranking Third Reich official, is often quoted as having said:
"Whenever I hear the word culture, I reach for my revolver." Reichsmarschall Goering (Göring), who
was commander of Germany's air force, would never have said anything like this. Along with other high-level Third Reich
leaders, he esteemed the arts, and prided himself on his appreciation of culture.
This quote is a distortion of a line by a character in the play Schlageter by German writer
Hanns Johst. The original line (translated) is "When I hear [the word] culture ... I release the safety on my Browning!"
A version of this quote is presented in a staged scene in "Why We Fight," a US government wartime propaganda film,
to suggest that the typical "Nazi" was an uncultured thug.
Hitler and Conscience
liberating man from the degrading chimera known as conscience," Hitler is supposed to have said. This widely repeated
quote appears, for example, in The Great Quotations, a supposedly authoritative collection compiled by Jewish American
journalist and author George Seldes. It's a version of a remark attributed to Hitler by Hermann Rauschning in his book,
The Voice of Destruction (Conversations with Hitler), which is a source of many fraudulent quotations
supposedly based on private talks with Hitler that, in fact, never took place.
The "original" text of this quote, as presented by Rauschning, is: "Providence has ordained that
I should be the greatest liberator of humanity. I am freeing men from the restraints of an intelligence that has taken charge;
from the dirty and degrading self-mortifications of a chimera called conscience and morality, and from the demands of a
freedom and personal independence which only a very few can bear."
In fact, Hitler repeatedly emphasized the importance of acting conscientiously. For example, in at least three different
public statements or speeches 1941 alone, he spoke about acting in accord with his conscience. Rudolf Hess, a close friend
and trusted colleague, once said that his devotion to Hitler was based in large measure on his regard for Hitler's resolute
conscience. In a 1934 speech Hess said: "The conscience of a moral personality is a far greater protection against
the misuse of an office than is the supervision of parliament or the separation of powers. I know no one who has a stronger
conscience, or is more true to his people, than Adolf Hitler ... The Führer's highest court is his conscience and his
responsibility to his people and to history."
'Destroy By All Means'
The US government propaganda
film, "Why We Fight," quotes Hitler as having said: "My motto is 'Destroy by all and any means. National
Socialism will reshape the world'." This is a version of a remark attributed to Hitler by Hermann Rauschning in his
influential book. The "original" text, as presented by Rauschning, is: "I want war. To me all means will
be right ... My motto is not 'Don't, whatever you do, annoy the enemy!' My motto is 'Destroy him by all and any means.' I
am the one who will wage the war!" Another version of this invented remark appears in the book Hitler and Nazism
(1961), by historian Louis Leo Snyder, who was a professor at City College of New York.
Hitler on Terrorism
has often been quoted as saying: "Terrorism is the best political weapon for nothing drives people harder than a fear
of sudden death." This quote is based on two invented remarks in Hermann Rauschning's mendacious book, The Voice
Hitler: 'We Are Barbarians'
Hitler has often been quoted as saying: "They refer to me as an uneducated barbarian.
Yes, we are barbarians. We want to be barbarians, it is an honored title to us. We shall rejuvenate the world. This world
is near its end."
This is another fraudulent Hitler
quote from the fanciful work of Hermann Rauschning.
and 'Brutal Youth'
"A violently active, dominating,
intrepid, brutal youth -- that is what I am after ... I want to see in its eyes the gleam of pride and independence, of
prey. I will have no intellectual training. Knowledge is the ruin of my young men." This widely cited remark is included,
for example, in George Seldes' The Great Quotations. The source cited by Seldes is an item in The Nation
by the popular American journalist and author John Gunther (1901-1970).
In fact, this is a version of a remark attributed to Hitler by Hermann Rauschning, whose imaginative work is a source
of many phony "quotes." Another fraudulent Hitler remark in this same spirit and from this same source, likewise
cited by the supposedly authoritative Seldes, is this: "Universal education is the most corroding and disintegrating
poison that liberalism ever invented for its own destruction."
These remarks misrepresent Hitler's real views. In fact, National Socialist Germany was a world leader in science,
learning, technology and medicine. Hitler was admired by some of the leading intellectuals of the age, including Knut Hamsun,
Ezra Pound, Louis-Ferdinand Celine and Martin Heidegger.

The Most Heartless War Crime Ever Committed: When the Soviets Sank a German Refugee Ship Full of Children
sinking of this refugee ship filled with innocent german women and children remains not only the worst nautical
disaster in world history but one of the most heartless and sadistic war crimes ever committed.
For millions of Germans cut off
on the Baltic coast by the rapid Red Army advance, only one avenue of escape remained open - the sea. Even
here, however, Soviet aircraft controlled the skies above and submarines prowled unseen below. In the various
ports along the coast, thousands upon thousands of ragged, frozen refugees pressed to the water’s edge in
hopes of landing a spot on one of the few vessels available.
The numbers were so great and the fear so consuming that efforts to board when ships did dock often resembled
“The crush to get on board
was just terrible,” a witness wrote from Pillau. “I saw a pram being squeezed out of all recognition
by the pushing masses. One old man fell into the water and there was nothing one could do in the crush—also
it was so cold he would have died on hitting the water.”
Because armed guards had orders to evacuate as many women and children as possible, babies
were used like tickets,
with half-crazed mothers tossing infants down to relatives
on the pier. Some children landed safely; some did not.
If anything, the situation at Gotenhafen was even more horrific. As the Wilhelm Gustloff made
ready to take on passengers in late January 1945, the ship’s crew was stunned by what they saw. “There must
have been 60,000 people on the docks . . . ,” remembered second engineer, Walter Knust. “[A]s soon
as we let down the gangways people raced forward and pushed their way in. In the confusion a lot of children got
separated from their parents. Either the kids got on board leaving their parents on the harbor or the children
were left behind as their parents got pushed forward by the throng.”
A former cruise liner designed to accommodate two thousand passengers and crew, by the time
the Gustloff cast ropes on January 30, the beautiful white ship had taken on as many as eight thousand refugees.
Even so, as she backed away from port, her path was blocked by smaller craft jammed with people.
“Take us with you,” the refugees cried. “Save the children!”
“We put down nets and everybody on the small ships scrambled up as best they
could,” said the Gustloff ’s radio operator, Rudi Lange. “As we got under way I think I remember
being told by one of the ship’s officers to send a signal that another 2,000 people had come aboard.”
That black, stormy night, as she struggled through high winds and heavy,
ice-filled waves, the Gustloff ’s ventilation and plumbing systems failed utterly. Strained far beyond its
limits, the tightly-sealed ship filled with a hot, nauseating stench of urine, excrement, and vomit. The groans
and screams of severely wounded soldiers and the wails of separated families added to the ghastly horror. But the
worst was yet to come. At approximately 9 p.m., three heavy jolts rocked the passengers on the Gustloff.
“Vroom—Vroom—Vroom! That’s what it sounded like,”
recalled a young boy upon hearing the torpedoes.
heard [the] explosions,” wrote engineer Knust, “and I knew what had happened at once, because the engines
stopped and then I saw a rush of water through the engine room. First the ship lurched to starboard under the
force of the blast. Then she rose and began listing to port. I put on my shoes and jacket and hurried out into
below deck stampeded through the narrow passageways crushing and clawing others in an attempt to reach the life
boats. “People were rushing about and screaming. Alarm bells shrilled,” remembered one terrorized passenger.
“We struggled through the crowd to one of the boats,” said
Paula Knust, wife of the ship’s officer. “It was so cold as the wind hit us. I was wearing only slacks
and a blouse and blazer. Already the ship had a heavy list. The waves seemed very high, and you cannot imagine how
terrible it looked.”
were frozen solid and even those that could be freed were mishandled in the panic and spilled their screaming occupants
into the black sea. Walter and Paula Knust grappled with one boat that did manage to get away. “As we hit
the water,” the husband recalled, “I could see people leaping from the side of the ship into the sea.
I thought those who escaped drowning would freeze to death. It was so cold.” Indeed, the water was so frigid that
those who leaped overboard might just as well have jumped into boiling oil or acid for their chances of survival
were almost as slim. In seconds, minutes at most, the struggling swimmers were dead.
While loud speakers blared words of comfort—“The ship will
not sink. Rescue ships are on the way”—thousands of freezing people pressed along the decks. Convinced
that the sealed bulkheads had held and that indeed, the ship would not sink, many passengers fled indoors once more
to escape the razor sharp winds and –20 degree temperature. The respite proved brief, however.
At ten o’clock a heavy tremor ripped the Gustloff as the bulkheads
broke and the sea rushed in. Within seconds, the big ship began to roll on its side. Sixteen-year-old Eva Luck
was in the ballroom with her mother and little sister:
[S]uddenly the whole music room tilted and a great cry went up from all the people there. They literally
slid in a heap along the angled deck. A grand piano at one end went berserk and rolled across the crowded room
crushing women and children in its path and scattering others before it. Finally it smashed into the port bulkhead
with a discordant roar as though a giant fist had hit all the keys at once.
Elsewhere, other victims went flying through glass enclosed decks into the sea.
Amid the screams, sirens and roar of rushing water, gunshots sounded throughout the doomed ship as those trapped
below committed suicide.
escaping the ball room with the help of a sailor, Eva Luck’s family frantically tried to escape:
My mother had forgotten to put her shoes on, and I moved clumsily on high heels
towards the iron rungs of the ladder going up the ship’s inside. People around us were falling about as the
ship moved but I was able to grasp the rungs and haul up my little sister. . . . My mother followed us to the
upper deck. When we got there it was terrible. I saw with horror that the funnel was lying almost parallel with
the sea. People were jumping in. I could hear the ship’s siren and felt the ice-cold water round my legs.
I reached out to try and grab my sister. I felt nothing but the water as it swept me out and over the side.
Fortunately for Eva and a few others, the force of the flooding water freed
a number of life rafts. As survivors scrambled aboard, the Gustloff began her swift descent. “Suddenly,”
remembered a woman in a lifeboat, “it seemed that every light in the ship had come on. The whole ship was
blazing with lights, and her sirens sounded out over the sea.”
Paula Knust also watched the drama:
I cannot forget the loud clear sound of the siren as the Gustloff with all her lights on made the final
plunge. I could clearly see the people still on board the Gustloff clinging to the rails. Even as she went under
they were still hanging on and screaming. All around us were people swimming, or just floating in the sea. I can
still see their hands grasping at the sides of our boat. It was too full to take on any more.
When rescue ships later reached the scene, they pulled from the icy waters
a mere nine hundred survivors. All else—an estimated 8,000-9,000 men, women and children—were lost.
Even then, however, the nightmare did not end. When rescue vessels touched
land, scores of victims were disembarked at Gotenhafen. Thus, in less than twenty-four hours, after a harrowing
night of incredible terror, some refugees found themselves on the very docks they had hoped to leave, once again
searching desperately for a way to escape to approaching Red Army.
Lost Story of German Latin Americans Interned During WW2
After Pearl Harbor, the US state
department strong-armed Latin American allies like Costa Rica
into dispossessing, and often deporting, German immigrants.
With the Statue of Liberty
looming overhead, an 11-year-old boy named Jurgen sat huddled in his coat,
his family and few pieces of luggage, as a cold wind blew off the Hudson River.
Ellis Island is best known as the former gateway for millions of immigrants entering the US,
but in the winter of 1944,
the boy – Jurgen – and his family
were about to be deported to Germany.
“We were processed on Ellis Island as illegal immigrants,” said Jurgen, now 82
. “In reality, we were kidnapped by the US government.”
Jurgen and his family were among thousands of Latin
Americans of German origin who were rounded up
by their respective
governments on orders from the
US following the bombing of Pearl Harbor on 7
They were detained in accordance with a little-known
US state department program.
The Special War Problems Division would
orchestrate the detention of more than 4,000 Latin
Americans from Germany, Japan
and Italy in internment camps in Texas
and elsewhere, as well as localized
detention centers in Latin America.
In all, 15 Latin American countries would deport residents and citizens of German ancestry to
detention centers in the United States, often without legal recourse,
according to a statement from the National Archives.
The internment of more than 120,000 Japanese Americans in camps has been
recognized by the US Congress,
but the story of Latin Americans with
origins in axis countries has been largely lost to history.
As the 73rd anniversary of the US entry into the second world war approaches, fewer
and fewer people remain
who experienced firsthand the Immigration and Naturalization
Service internment camps in the US.
The second world war arrived swiftly for Jurgen’s family and other Germans living in Costa Rica.
a month after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, Jurgen’s
arrested by Costa Rican police on 2 January 1942.
By the late 1930s,the FBI had begun to identify
possible Nazi sympathizers, fearing Axis forces
would establish a foothold in
Latin America. In the case of Costa Rica, the US Embassy in San José
a list of names to be deported to the government, a move acknowledged
in a State
Department memo dated 15 November 1943.
Larger countries like Mexico, Chile and Argentina resisted the demand to deport their citizens,
but that was not an option for the small Central American nation. In 1942, the US
announced that it would boycott all Costa Rican products
from German-owned companies.
Coffee accounted for more than half of
the country’s exports between 1938 and 1945 –
and the coffee
business was dominated by German firms, according to Gertrud Peters,
economic historian at the National University of Costa Rica.
Unable to ship goods to Germany because of the allied blockade,
Costa Rica – among many other Latin American nations – was forced to comply.
Two weeks after Jurgen’s father was detained, a letter arrived from
the police informing
his family that he had been deported to the US,
where he was being
held in the country’s largest internment camp,
in Crystal City, Texas.
dusty Texas town could not have been more different
from the mild climate
and green mountains of San José.
The 500-acre internment camp, which at its peak would house nearly 3,400 detainees,
was still largely under construction when Jurgen arrived in late 1943.
“The camp was built on an old spinach field,” Jurgen said. “There
was a statue
of Popeye in the town.” The statue still stands in
Crystal City today.
the unpaved roads would become thick with mud, and Jurgen and the other
children took to walking to the latrines on short stilts to protect their shoes.
Jurgen said that the camp provided all the basics for his family, including
in three-unit row houses, communal latrines and food. His
father, a businessman,
found work laying asphalt for the camp’s roads and,
briefly, plucking feathers off turkeys.
Jurgen and his younger brother cut beet greens with
a knife to earn
$1 an hour, which the family
could use to order goods from the Montgomery
Ward Catalog. The family was already
saving up to buy coats for the
next leg of their journey back to Germany.
Besides keeping axis nationals from supposedly impeding the US war effort at home,
Crystal City served an important role for the US abroad: providing the country with
a grab-bag of prisoners who could be traded for Americans held by the Third Reich.
Faced with the prospect of spending the remaining years of the
war in detention, Jurgen’s family volunteered for deportation.
The family traveled by train to Ellis Island before they boarded a Red
and sailed back to Europe. Allied and Russian forces were
beginning to close in on Germany.
As Jurgen and his family filed off
the boat in Lisbon, a line of American
prisoners waited to board, bound
back to the United States.
family eventually returned to Costa Rica in 1948.
They were able to
recover their properties, but the same could
not be said for many German
whose businesses and land were seized by the government and
sold to pay down the national debt and subsidize populist land reforms.
After years in war-torn Germany, what they
found in Costa Rica was yet more conflict:
following a disputed election in 1948,
the country fell into a brief civil war. That war brought
rise of President José Figueres, the leader who abolished Costa Rica’s
army in 1948. The following year, Costa Rica declared its political neutrality.
Germany's defeat in May 1945, and the end of World War II in
Europe, did not bring an end to death and suffering for the vanquished German people. Instead the victorious Allies
ushered in a horrible new era that, in many ways, was worse than the destruction wrought by war.
In a sobering and courageous book, After the
Reich: The Brutal History of the Allied Occupation, British historian Giles MacDonogh details how the ruined and prostrate
Reich (including Austria) was systematically raped and robbed, and how many Germans who survived the war were either killed
in cold blood or deliberately left to die of disease, cold, malnutrition or starvation.
Many people take the view that, given the wartime misdeeds of the Nazis, some degree of vengeful
violence against the defeated Germans was inevitable and perhaps justified. A common response to reports of Allied atrocities
is to say that the Germans "deserved what they got." But as MacDonogh establishes, the appalling cruelties inflicted
on the totally prostrate German people went far beyond that.
best estimate is that some three million Germans, military and civilians, died unnecessarily after the official end of hostilities.
Millions of these were men who were being held as prisoners of war, most
of whom died in Soviet captivity. (Of the 90,000 Germans who surrendered at Stalingrad, for example, only 5,000 ever returned
to their homeland.) Less well known is the story of the many thousands of German prisoners who died in American and British
captivity, most infamously in horrid holding camps along the Rhine river, with no shelter and very little food. Others,
more fortunate, toiled as slave labor in Allied countries, often for years.
Most of the two million German civilians who perished after the end of the war were women, children and elderly
-- victims of disease, cold, hunger, suicide, and mass murder.
Apart from the wide-scale rape of millions of German girls and woman in the Soviet occupation
zones, perhaps the most shocking outrage recorded by MacDonogh is the slaughter of a quarter of a million Sudeten Germans
by their vengeful Czech compatriots. The wretched survivors of this ethnic cleansing were pitched across the border, never
to return to their homes. There were similar scenes of death and dispossession in Pomerania, Silesia and East Prussia as
the age-old German communities of those provinces were likewise brutally expunged.
We are ceaselessly reminded of the Third Reich's wartime concentration camps. But few Americans are aware that such
infamous camps as Dachau, Buchenwald, Sachsenhausen and Auschwitz stayed in business after the end of the war, only now
packed with German captives, many of whom perished miserably.
vengeful plan by US Treasury Secretary Henry Morgenthau to turn defeated Germany into an impoverished "pastoral"
country, stripped of modern industry, is recounted by MacDonogh, as well as other genocidal schemes to starve, sterilize
or deport the population of what was left of the bombed-out cities.
It wasn't an awakening of humanitarian concern that prompted a change in American and British attitudes toward the
defeated Germans. The shift in postwar policy was based on fear of Soviet Russian expansion, and prompted a calculated appeal
to the German public to support the new anti-Soviet stance of the US and Britain.
MacDonogh's important book is an antidote to the simplistic but enduring propaganda portrait of World War II as
a clash between Good and Evil, and debunks the widely accepted image of benevolent Allied treatment of defeated Germany.
This 615-page volume is much more than a gruesome chronicle of death and
human suffering. Enhanced with moving anecdotes, it also provides historical context and perspective. It is probably the
best work available in English on this shameful chapter of twentieth century history.
The following is an interview with Karl Wilhelm Krause in the early 1990s. The interview is
recorded in the video: In The Service Of The Führer Hitler's Shadow Documentary (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b-15GPsXAqg). According to the video, Krause was Hitler's valet from 1934 to 1939, and was also responsible for his personal safety and
security during that period. But also from the interview it is evident that he had contacts with Hitler after his service
as valet was terminated.
The Service Of The Führer Hitler's Shadow Documentary
(1) At Min. 15:40:
Krause tells of a conversation shortly after he became Hitler's valet about joining the Party. When he asked Hitler about
this, Hitler told him it was not necessary to join the Party and in time he, Hitler, thought he might dissolve the Party.
Krause said he also heard Hitler make this statement to Richard Wagner's widow, Winfried Wagner. At Min: 16:63 Hitler said:
"There are only Germans, no Party."
(2) At Min. 26:00: Krause tells that what Hitler did, he did for his people not for himself.
He goes on to tell that Hitler was an uncomplicated man. His mission was to raise the German people up to the highest level.
(3) At Min 40:40: In reference to the German entry into Austria on March 12, 1938
and then the short dialogue at the hotel which raised the issue of the hotel bill: Hitler said in reply to the statement that
the bill was way to high, "Just pay it. Maybe they got many debts too." That evidences a view that if the money
is issued directly into the economy, the debt will come down. Maybe I am reading something into this here but that is consistent
with his January 30, 1939 speech.
(4) At Min. 41:50 Krause tells of Hitler's response when informed of the destruction
on Crystal Night: "What the hell have they done. I will get the blame for this." Krause continues in telling of
Hitler's outrage over this incident. This was only six weeks after the settlement of the Sudetenland crisis. Hitler obviously
knew this would be a strong propaganda tool for the warmongers. And it was, compounded by Roosevelt's public removal of the
American ambassador from Berlin. This raises the question: Did Jews from outside Germany instigate this incident, as some
(5) At Min. 43:40 Krause tells of Hitler's response to the signing of the Molotov-Ribbentrop
Pack: "He raised his hand and he slapped it down on his knee and he said: "Its done, Really." If this agreement
was meant to be consistent with Chapter 14 of Mein Kampf, then it had to be a bluff. Maybe the nest comment from Krause will
shed some light on why Hitler attacked Poland.
(6) At Min. 44:50 Krause tells that after the meeting with the generals immediately preceeding
the invasion of Poland, Hitler said: "The ball is rolling. Even I can't stop it now. God willing, it will have a good
outcome." Krause's statement on this decision to invade Poland: "I understood it this way. It was the Wehrmacht
that wanted to go into Poland and not him." But Krause also admits that Hitler was in agreement with the invasion and,
as head of state, was responsible for the decision to invade Poland.
What happened over the next six years was exactly what Hitler told in Mein Kampf would happen
if an agreement was made with Russia under Jewish Communist rule. Obviously Hitler violated his words in Mein Kampf. But did
he know he was violating those words when he made the decision on August 23, 1939 and more so on September 1, 1939? In other
words, did he believe that Stalin had become a nationalist not communist? Even if he believed this, he still had to know he
would still be dealing with the devil and by this invasion he would be doing the devil's work. This he rediscovered conclusively
a little over a year later with Molotov's visit to Berlin in November 1940. But even before Poland was secured militarily
the devil commenced to overrun the three Baltic counties, and invade Finland and Romania.
(7) At Min, 46:20 Krause recalls Ribbentrop's words to the Englishman, probably Sir Nevile
Henderson, the English ambassador: "Come to your senses, man!" Kruse then paraphrases Ribbentrop: "There is
no reason to start a war regarding Poland and then suddenly Mr. Eden ran down the stairs. And I remember how he said: 'If
I would have stayed up there another 15 minutes with them, I probably would have been in agreement with them, the Germans.
But that is not permitted!'" It is likely that Kruse misstated here, confusing Henderson for Eden. This is over fifty
years later and from the beginning of the war in the West, Eden was the British Foreign minister. It is to bad the interviewer
did not challenge this so as to either get a correction or a clarification.
(8) At Min 47:22 Krause reinforces that that was reasonably well known: That Hitler especially
wanted to be on good terms with England and if possible, also with the French. That Hitler made clear in his January 30, 1939
(9) At Min, 54:00 Kruse emphatically states: "don't believe for a minute that he,
Hitler, was told everything that was going on during the war. I can tell you of one episode of a situation briefing at the
Wolf's Lair all of the generals were there for a meeting and then they stepped outside. I glanced at my watch and then I realized.
Oh my. It is almost time for lunch. So I quickly went to the Kitchen to see how lunch was coming along. And everything seemed
good. Then when I came back out I realized that all of the generals were standing outside talking. Now there was sort of a
barracks on the one side then the hall and on the other side there were various rooms. The situation room was near the front.
As the generals were standing outside, I overhead them say: 'He can tell us what ever he wants, but we will just do what we
think is right.' The boss actually couldn't trust any of them. And he didn't."
(10) At Min. 37:30 Kruse gives his final opinion of Hitler: "Hitler wanted the best
for the German people. But he wasn't able to achieve it. And that really frustrated him, if you know what I mean. It really
tormented him inside. And that more than anything else is what led to his eventual demise."
Much of what Kruse says in these last two parts is in close agreement with Tedor's, Hitler's
Revolution. Kruse's comments that Hitler wanted the best for his people is evident in the change he made to the Riechsbank,
making it a bank of issue not a private institution beholden to a privileged private interest. That Hitler removed the Jewish
community from power in Germany was of no small purpose in achieving this most important of historical events in the modern
Solely from this achievement alone we might judge Hitler as the only true statesman in history
if we understand that the role of the statesman is to serve all of the people in his nation, not simply the elites, Hitler,
of all the statesmen the world has had since the written record of history was established, is the only one history records
to give the power of the issuance of the money to the people.
The commentary by Kruse is supportive of much other historical evidence that leads to the conclusion
that Hitler strove to make Germany a better place for all of its people, not just its elites. He did this by removing the
issuance of money from the privileged elites and placing in the government, presumably to the benefit of the people. But for
this he was to be defeated by the world's elites, including those in Germany, led dominantly by a small number of Jews
that seem to have control over almost all of the Jewish people.
The video ends with a statement from Gandhi to Hitler: "We have no doubt about your bravery
or devotion to your fatherland, nor do we believe that you are the monster described by your opponents."
HEROES HANG WHEN TRAITORS TRIUMPH
History is the propaganda of the victors but their spin on yesterday’s heroes
has since crashed on the internet highway. Had World War II ended in a peace deal, the German Workers Reich, before and after
Adolf Hitler, would have been far more omnipotent and yet much more peaceful than the United States.
By 1945 Bolshevism would have run its disastrous course rather than allowed to continue
harvesting tens of millions of Christian martyrs for a further 45 years. Britain and European would still today be influential
and bringing mutual prosperity to Far East Asia and Africa. South Africa and Rhodesia would be as prosperous and benign as
they were before Negro despotism.
Predictably, character assassination follows military defeat and many great men of the
period are since vilified. But had peace been negotiated London’s Hyde Park would be Lawrence of Arabia Park?
Norway’s monuments would celebrate Vidkun Quisling and Knut Hamsun. Romania would honour Cornelius
Codreanu. In Ireland, UK and U.S. the name William Joyce is affixed to great public buildings and boulevards in the United
States, Britain, and Ireland.
Few who now hate these men actually know them. What they do hate are the caricatures
that allied propagandists turned these brave men into. These caricatures created by the allies are as mythical as mermaids.
Heroes Hang when Traitors Triumph by Mike Walsh gives a different perspective of former
much-vilified foes. Here are the spin-free true stories of men who set examples of great courage and fortitude yet since
had their reputations defiled by victors’ horseshit.
T. E. LAWRENCE AKA LAWRENCE OF ARABIA
New evidence strongly suggests that one of Britain’s greatest war adventurers
was assassinated by the British Secret Service. The legendary desert warrior, friend of outstanding writer Henry Williamson
and admirer of Adolf Hitler, previous to his murder, had stated his intention to join the British Union of Fascists. If
T. E. Lawrence and Henry Williamson were to oppose the war then the Churchill led war clique’s intention to force
war on Germany via Poland’s provocations might have been derailed.
WILLIAM JOYCE HANGED FOR WORDS HE DIDN’T SAY
The academically brilliant William Joyce was falsely dubbed ‘Lord Haw-Haw’. During
the war, it was said the Irish-American had betrayed Britain. American LIFE magazine calculated that 50% of the English
people listened to William Joyce’s opinions broadcast from Hamburg. The manager of East Riding Radio Relay
Service complained; “We are inundated with requests for Lord Haw-Haw broadcasts, which we are not allowed to give.”
Statesman David Lloyd George; “The Government ought to take notice of every word this man says.”
The true account of William Joyce, family background, his tireless struggle against the Reds, his decision
to seek sanctuary in Germany when hunted by the Special Branch, and his tragic fate, will bring a lump to many throats.
VIDKUN QUISLING AND THE MARTYRDOM OF A VIKING
Unconvinced about the power of victors’ propaganda? Sir Vidkun Quisling thoroughly
earned his British knighthood. An adventurer and close friend of polar explorer Fridtjof Nansen, the great statesman worked
with the International Red Cross in famine-struck Ukraine.
With others, Quisling is credited with saving the lives of millions of Eastern Europeans. Throughout
his life, especially during the failed Bolshevik attempt to subvert Norway, Vidkun Quisling showed rare courage. This
and much more and yet his name has become synonymous with cowardice and treachery. His story will inspire you. It
will also teach you to respect the power of propaganda.
CORNELIU CODREANU IRON GUARD LEGION
It was student protests that helped to extinguish the flames of Bolshevism in Eastern
Europe. During the rise of the Reich, it was Leipzig students, not the NSDAP that inspired and initiated the mass
burning of Marxist ideology, pornography and anti-German subversive literature.
Elsewhere in post-war Europe student power helped topple governments. One such was Romania’s
Corneliu Codreanu, the fiery leader of the revolutionary Romanian Iron Guard. Had his aims been achieved then
Codreanu’s name in Romania today would be as revered as Kemal Ataturk’s is in Turkey. His is an inspiring
account of a little-known saga of Central European revolution.
KNUT HAMSUN NORWAY’S SOLZHENITSYN
In 1920 Knut Hamsun was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature but was it undeserved? Not
according to Ernest Hemingway: “Hamsun taught me to write.”
The roll-call of iconic giants of literature, who revered Knut Hamsun, includes Isaac Bashevis Singer who
said, “The whole modern school of fiction in the twentieth century stems from Hamsun.”
Franz Kafka, Leo Tolstoy, Stefan Zweig, Henry Miller, Hermann Hesse and many others of similar renown. Thomas
Mann described Knut Hamsun as, “A descendant of Fyodor Dostoevsky and Friedrich Nietzsche.”
