“The capacity for absorption of the crowd is very limited and her understanding is weak. Propaganda should be aimed more to the emotion of the public than to their reason”. “It is possible to make people believe by ingenious and continued propaganda, that Heaven is Hell or that the most miserable life is like Paradise”. “Every lie, even the most scandalous one leaves a track behind……..that fact is well known to all professional liars, who conspire in this art.” A.Hitler in Mein Kampf.

“Every person in Germany, and in the whole world, knows what a genius and propagandist Dr Goebbels is. Often his propaganda would have been so successful if it was not built from the beginning on a scarcity of truth! Often the Doctor fooled the nation. He never muttered in his beard, but praised something to high heaven that later proved to be a lie. His propaganda was founded in absolute truth, in unyielding fanatical truthfulness. (Wilfrid Bade)
“Our leadership assumed a mobile defence and took new positions that would greatly shorten our transport routes in order to put numerous forces, who were previously employed in the rear, into operation in order to provide for favourable possibilities for the future defence of the front in the east.” 1943

It is a publication that exclusively serves the Dutch cause by keeping the Americans informed about the abuse of the Netherlands and what is being done from outside the Netherlands by Dutchmen to liberate you. The Knickerbocker Weekly is an independent Dutch weekly that has set itself the goal to engage itself for your cause and to see to it that America stays informed about your faithfulness to your own traditions and of your steadfast will to become free again.

The American are there! On 26 January 1942 American troops landed again on European territory, 24 years and 7 months after the First US Expeditionary Army arrived in France and so decided the war in favour of the Allies. Without the loss of a single life the convoy of troop ships arrived safely from America in Northern Ireland where the troops have now moved into their barracks. Following this Winston Churchill announced in the House of Commons on 27 January: “The vanguard of an American army has already landed in the United Kingdom. Substantial armed forces will follow when the opportunity is favourable. These armed forces will be stationed in the British Isles and together with us they will face everything that confronts us. They give mobility to all armed forces in Britain; greater than which we would have had otherwise. Numerous American fighter and bomber squadrons will also participate in the defence of Great Britain and in the steadily increasing intense bombing offensive against Germany.” Two black dates for the Jerries: 26 June 1917: The Americans land in France 26 January 1942: The Americans land in Northern Ireland What they said about these: In the previous war: Before the German defeat “Our enemies are presently bluffing against us and we see that they are calling upon the big army on the other side of the ocean. That army can neither swim nor fly. It won’t come”. Hergt, Prussian Finance Minister, January 1918. After the German defeat: “Would America arrive in time to wrest the laurels off our heads? That, and only that, was the decisive question. I believed I could reply to this in the negative. But I was wrong.” Hindenburg in his memoirs. In this war: Before the German defeat: “What are they hoping for? That America will enter the war? Right from the beginning we took every possibility into account. Every ship, whether in a convoy or not, and appears in front of our torpedo launchers will be torpedoed.” Adolf Hitler, 30 January 1941. After the German defeat:

Announcement The male population did not sufficiently respond to the appeal by the Mayor for labour input. The measures taken will now be applied fiercely. Towards this end some arrests have already been made. All male persons in the municipal area of Zwolle born between 1920 and 1928 have to report immediately at the Municipal Labour Office at 18 Kamper Street, Zwolle. Persons with a surname starting from A to L must report on Thursday 22 February 1945 between 09:00 and 17:00 and persons with a surname from M to Z must report on Friday 23 February 1945 between 09:00 and 17:00. Persons with a document of exemption need top produce this for control purposes. This labour service will be performed in the town’s vicinity. If the town does not reach the required number of workers on 23 February 1945 then reprisals against life and property will follow. Your attention is again drawn to the decree of 14 September 1944 (see the announcement). The Plenipotentiary of the Reich Commissioner for the Province Overijssel.

PUTTEN. How the brutes carried on in our village Putten An hommage to the Swiss and the Swedish Red cross. _______Lest it be forgotten________
EPILOGUE The Germans burnt down a large part of Putten, deported 600 men to Germany. By personal order of General Christiansen. Only 5 of them survived; they returned as human wrecks.
In June 1943 NSB Police Inspector Peter Kaay was shot dead on the Kuipersdijk in Enschede. As reprisals 24 career police employees were taken to a Stalag in Germany. Dirk Bongers was one of them.
In addition to Jews many Dutch citizens were locked up in the “Police Transit Camp” in Amersvoort. The Dutch mostly played a role in politics and also persons who did not hide their negative feelings against the Nazis too carefully. They were maltreated and humiliated in the “lager” and especially the Jews to a terrible extent. The non-Jews were either released after a short while or sent to a concentration camp. The Jews were murdered directly or transported to a gas camp.
In Haaren and St Michielsgestel good Dutchmen were locked up as hostages. If “sabotage” took place anywhere against the Nazis, some of these innocent persons were shot.
In these prisons are no riffraff, but Holland’s glory, dash it all!

Traitors to their country Mary my child, please play “I love you my Netherlands” again, but quite loudly so that all can sing along and so that the traitor to our country standing outside can hear this very well. September 1941 Traitors to their country by Max Blokzijl The unmarried engineer with a very high income has been sacked because of his convictions and he now sells magazines about the struggle – for the Netherlands. The courageous citizens now sit behind their windows and grimace: “There he stands, the traitor to the country, freeze yourself to death, and then freeze yourself to death. Mary, play on the piano the beautiful song, “I love you, my Netherlands”. And children, all sing along! And daddy too. Loudly, so that the lad outside should hear it well! The devil may take me, but I don’t know why these hundreds of thousands of traitors to their country are traitors. Can one then be, or have been a traitor to his country when one has shown that one wants to give everything one possesses to the country, that one now wants to betray? Mary – your song sounds quite false. Or is it your parents who are forcing you to play like this? I don’t want to hear the song from you anymore.

Italy still has the same King as in the year 1915. Victor Emanuel III Allied propaganda pamphlets
The Italians believe in Realpolitik Mussolini actually stated: “We are going with Germany to the bitter end!” In any event Mussolini shortly afterwards sent his son in law, Count Galeazzo Ciano, as Italian Ambassador to the Pope. The Vatican State, of which the Pope is the leader, is neutral. The Pope has said time and again that his highest political wish is: Peace on earth. A delegation of captured Italian Generals, under the leadership of General Bergonzoli, was received recently by the Mayor of New York, F. La Guardia. Mayor La Guardia is of Italian descent – and, as is known, he is not very friendly towards the Germans. In America the Italians are legally no longer regarded as hostile foreigners.
During 1943 important events happened in the Mediterranean area. We wanted to know whether the Axis powers have lost anything by the treason of the spiteful royal Victor Emanuel or of his politically inferior equal, Umberto. The answer is ‘no!’ (Dr Ley)
On 25 July 1943 the King dismissed Mussolini outright. On 8 September the capitulation of Italy followed. The diary of Goebbels: “The King of Italy is a traitor!” “The capitulation is a stab of a dagger in the back!”
In May 1938 the Fuhrer was in Italy for the second time. In his honour a number of festive occasions were held, a march of the fascist militiamen and of Italian troops in Rome and also a large naval exercise in the Bay of Naples!

Ciano’s diaries: “We have never been treated as allies, but always as servants. Every [military] operation has always been conducted without our knowledge.”
“The German nation is a militaristic but not a bellicose one!” “Give the German a lot of sausages, butter, beer and a Volkswagen, and then he does not feel like having his stomach pierced!” Il Duce remarked in this regard. (Ciano’s diaries)
10 March 1939: “Mussolini was very impressed by a report from Attalice essentially confirming two matters: 1. That the Fuhrer feels very strongly about the solidarity and is prepared to march with us. 2. That the German nation stands in closed ranks behind the FÃ¼hrer but would like to see any danger from war being disposed of.”
[Left top] The tragic dictator and his imitator. [Right top] Two nations and one catastrophe [Centre] For the fifth time the Fuhrer and Il Duce met with one another: Venice, June 1934; Berlin September 1937; Rome, May 1938; Munich September 1938 and on the Brenner Pass, March 1940. “At the altitude of 1370 metres on the Brenner pass, Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini had a fateful meeting. The discussion of two and a half hours was wide-ranging and of importance not only for German-Italian friendship, but also for the whole of Europe.” (Newspaper report) “18 March 1940. It is snowing on the Brenner. Mussolini is waiting for the guest with a kind of anxious joy. In recent times he became increasingly aware of the FÃ¼hrer’s fascinating power. The reasons are Hitler’s military successes, the only thing that Mussolini really appreciates and longs for.” (Ciano’s diaries)
Mussolini, why are you smiling like this?
State visit by the Fuhrer to His Majesty the King of Italy and Emperor of Ethiopia and appearing also with Il Duce of fascist Italy. “Since the cooperation of both dictators started in September 1937, the Axis had to endure quite a burden. For the first time they are behaving themselves as neighbours. The anschluss has not been forgotten in Italy and the concern about South Tyrol is increasing! The English-Italian agreement of April was not received with any enthusiasm in Berlin.” (Bullock)
Protocol required of Hitler, as head of state, to stay at the Quirinale Palace with the King. The ceremonial reception bored him and left him with an increasing feeling of aversion towards the Italian royalty. Diary of Goebbels: “Mussolini deserved a better nation than the one he is leading at present…” (27 March 1942)
Victor and Adolf greet each other at the station.
Two nations; one catastrophe!
The Munich Agreement. Article 1: The German and Italian nations are in agreement that they will also in future strive side by side with a united strength to secure their lebensraum [space of living] and to maintain peace. Article 2: If, against all wishes and hopes, it should happen that one or more of the parties in the agreement would become involved in warlike actions with another power, or with other powers, then the other party to this agreement will immediately come to his aid as an ally and support him with all military forces on land, at sea and in the air. Article 5: The parties to the agreement already now commit themselves that, in the event of a war waged in common, they would only conclude a truce or peace in consultation with each other.
Mussolini is greeted by Sir Franz von Epp (1938). Mussolini gave along a secret memorandum with General Cavallero on 30 May 1938 for Hitler. In this many of the points were again repeated that Mussolini prepared in his memo for Ciano before the meeting in Milan. He emphasised very strongly that Italy still needed until 1942 for a period of preparation and of peace! It would be advantageous to whittle away the powers of the Western countries to resist, because Il Duce did not want any war! If, however, Mussolini had known what Hitler said on 23 May â€“ in other words on the day after concluding the ‘Iron Pact’ â€“ to the commanders in chief of the army, navy and air force, his concern would have shot up sky high! War, said Hitler, was inevitable… 9 September 1943, Goebbels wrote: The Italians are leaving us in a critical time. It will be clear to them that they have chosen the most disgraceful political decision in history. They have lost face. One can after all not break one’s word twice in 25 years without one’s political honour going down in history with disgrace and shame.
Diary of Goebbels, 10 September 1943. The Fuhrer has absolutely expected the Italian treason with certainty! Where Mussolini is at the moment, is completely [un]known. 14 September 1943 The fortunate news came early in the evening that in a surprise move it was possible to free Il Duce. That is an act of heroism of the SD, the parachute troops of Student and the Waffen SS. Together with Il Duce was Caballero, who was thus not shot. We are of course humanly moved that the liberation of Il Duce succeeded. Badoglio brought Il Duce to a small hotel at Gran Sasso, high in the Abruzzi. Otto Skorzeny executed the surprise move with a section of the SS.
Adolf Hitler with Victor Emanuel III, King of Italy, Emperor of Abyssinia, later also for a time King of Albania. Victor Emanuel was only interested in his coin collection. This was probably the reason why Mussolini found it so easy to wrest away the real power in his favour. The King can only be regarded as a puppet!
Diary of Goebbels 11 September 1943: The King too cannot be spared anymore in our propaganda. The FÃ¼hrer gave his opinion that Princess Mafalda (the second daughter of the King, married to Prince Phillip of Hessen, who died in the Buchenwald concentration camp) provides the most friction from all in the Italian royal household. He believes that she bumped off her brother in law, Boris of Bulgaria, from alive to dead. It would also be possible that the Italian plutocratic clique had treated Mussolini with some poison, because Mussolini’s illness has been a mystery over a period of time.
Mussolini: The King always plays the anti-German game, but he had his daughter married to a German, his son to a Belgian woman of German descent and in his house one counts the marriages with Germans in their dozens!
“When Il Duce thought the time was right when the continuing intolerable attacks against him by especially the French and the British and he assumed his position with a rifle in the hand and the King declared war, this then happened in the full freedom of his decision. Italy’s entry has contributed to speeding up the full realisation in France that further resistance is futile. Since I personally have the honour the be this man’s friend, good fortune smiles upon me to have so much in common with someone than both our revolutions and yes, above all, the history of our unity and the overall victory on the part of both nations! Our cooperation on the political and military terrain is a complete one! The injustice will be solved that has been placed upon the German and Italian nation over the centuries. So: At the end of it all stands our common victory!”
Il Duce was very annoyed this morning about the King that told him some unpleasant things, e.g. Konrad of Bavaria had told him that Mussolini is only referred to in Munich as the Gauleiter of Italy. Il Duce said to me: “If Hitler had such a floppy tail as the King between his legs he would never have been able to take over Austria and Czechoslovakia.” (Ciano, 27 September 1939).
Initially friends, later on brothers in suffering. They drank on fraternity, but they were not “the real brothers”! Nothing was said about South Tyrol: In ‘Mein Kampf’, page 708, Hitler wrote: “Whoever today believes that through protests, declarations or club parades, the South Tyrol question can be solved, is either a total rogue or a German bourgeois.”
Frederick the Great!
“Germany and Italy have two completely different structures, but history has closely intertwined the fate of both nations. The key to this agreement in the most divergent areas is found in the outlooks on the world embodied by the great personalities of the Fuhrer and of Il Duce. From their cradle – and in neither case this stood in an aristocratic castle – through a hard time of youth right up to their present role as statesmen, fascinating parallels are to be seen. The enormous experience of the Italian corporal Benito Mussolini, and also of his German counterpart, Adolf Hitler, during the First World War formed the idea of the need for an inner unity and to bring their nations closer to each other. They believed this is necessary when called upon to have a voice in the concert of nations. Both created their parties upon this idea. Based upon this they pointedly conducted their struggle to create the state of their ideals. The FÃ¼hrer and Il Duce furthermore feel the same about the struggle for real socialism and concomitantly about their sharp rejection of Marxism and the world pest of Bolshevism for which the word, “socialism”, is a mere slogan propagating the aims of this destructive class struggle”. (Dr Otto Dietrich, Reich press chief).
Hitler publicly praised Il Duce at the Berlin Olympic Stadium as one of the lonesome men of all time who are not tested by history, but who make history! (28 September 1937).
The militiaman’s ten commandments 1. The fascist, and especially the militiaman, may not believe in permanent peace. 2. Punishment is always earned. 3. Also the guard of a barrel of fuel serves the fatherland. 4. The comrade is your brother – 1) because he is living with you and 2) because he thinks and feels like you. 5. Your rifle and bandolier should not be neglected when you are resting, but be held ready for the war. 6. Never say: The government is paying, because it is you who are paying. You have voted for the government and you wear its uniform. 7. Obedience is the god of the army, without it no soldier is conceivable, but only unruliness and defeats. 8. Mussolini is always right. 9. The volunteer has no rights when he is not obedient. 10. One thing is most important above all else: Il Duce’s life! (From: La Dottrina del Fascismo). .
In every person’s history – his history his hates and loves are clearly written. His inner being appears here in the light but not everyone can read it not everyone understands. Friedrich Bodenstedt, 1819 – 1892.
The Fuhrer, Adolf Hitler, born 20 April 1889 and committed suicide on 30 April 1945.
Il Duce, Benito Mussolini, born 1883, hanged in April 1945. Giervius: “The trip was completely unsuccessful. Both dictators are highly jealous of each other. They prowl around each other suspiciously. They feel like competitors rather than allies!”
And what are you doing?
Prices are rising! It is the nationalist robbers’ fault.
Italians: Don’t buy any German goods!
Fascist proletariat: Wake up!
The poet, Gabriele d’Annunzio, born in Pescara in 1863, was promoted in 1924 to the Prince of Monteneroso.
Benito Mussolini was born in 1883 in Predappio, a village in the Forli region of Romagna. His father was Alessandro Mussolini, a poor smith and an ardent socialist. Benito became a teacher, but after only a few months he left this position. He travelled around in Switzerland and occupied himself with revolutionary socialist propaganda. He was arrested in 1902 in Lausanne for vagrancy and in Berne for a political transgression and he was ultimately banned from Switzerland. Returning to Italy, he became a journalist with the newspaper, ‘Il Populo’, and afterwards of the socialist paper, ‘Lotto di Classe’ and of ‘Avanti.’ He participated in the First World War and was soon released from service because he was wounded. When communists became active, he founded the Fascist Party in 1919. In 1922 he executed a coup d’etat and became the dictator of Italy. In the meantime d’Annunzio, who did not want to go along with Fiume being granted to Yugoslavia by the League of Nations, occupied Fiume in 1919 with a crowd of volunteers in order for Fiume to stay within Italy. With funds that were in reality been gathered for the children of Fiume, Mussolini was able to conduct his famous march in 1922 from Naples to Rome.
The lofty ideals of humanity bridge many thousands of years; Rudolf Ismair. The Olympic gold medallist of 1932, swears the Olympic oath to all the participants; Haendels “Hallelujah” solemnly concludes the festive scenery;
The Hitler youth was the guard of honour for the bell.
Only a few of the contenders knew of the country hosting the Olympics. What they knew , they had often heard only in parts and and maliciously twisted;
The Olympic Bell sends its ironclad message to the world. A thundering salute comes from the cannons; Spyridon Louis, the winner of the 1896 Marathon, hands the Fuehrer an olive branch he has cut in the holy Grove of Olympia; Past and present join hands;
The Olympic Bell with the inscription:” I call the youth of the world”
The Olympic oath: In the name of all competitors, I promise that we shall take part in these Olympic games, respecting and abiding by the rules that govern them, in the true spirit of sportsmanship, for the glory of sport and the honour of our teams.
The Olympic flame spread its light over the heights of the Werdenfelser Land. The olympic flag flew on the highest pole in the skiing stadium; After the youthful teams of 28 Nations had entered the stadium and Adolf Hitler,Fuehrer and Chancellor of the new Germany had announced the opening of the fourth Winter Olympics, we have put up those signs of the desire for Olympic peace;
The countryside around Garmisch-Partenkirchen accommodated from the 6th to the 16th of February 1936 an extended family of nations, filled with mutual respect and affectionate understanding;
What nobody could or would have asked for ,for the first time English man and French man gave their host the German salute at an official meeting
Presence of mind and quick decisions are often apart from all other sailing factics, decisive in contending for place and victory with an equally matched opponent. Neither the redoubted Scandinavian countries, nor the United States ,so accustomed to winning ,were victorious. Instead, the winners were Italy, England, Germany and Holland .
The Fuehrer,accompanied by the Commander of the Navy and the Reichssportfuehrer on board of the yacht “Nixe”, attended the olympic sailing regattas on th Kieler Foerde.
Between the calm and the storm on Germany’s blue Kieler Foerde a regatta week was held,in such weather conditions as could only have been wished for to have an ideal Olympic competition;
The son of the former builder of the German stadium in Gruenewald,Werner March, designed a new project based on the ideas of the Fuehrer which surmounted in spaciousness and compactness everything that has been created in the world so far; West of the capital, surrounded by the greenery of the Grunewald,the Reichssportfeld was built on an area of 120 hectare.
The magnificent Olympic happening has relayed its waves to the farthest places on earth; The Olympic idea has grown new powerful buds faraway from Germany’s borders!
In the meantime Adolf Hitler had taken the fates of the German people to heart; The Fuehrer had the conversion plans brought to him, studied them and inspected the site; He then decided that the construction will take place.
Outside Berlin in Doeberitz an Olympic Village has been built with the help of the army, enabling all of its occupants to prepare themselves in perfect tranquillity for their competition; A dreamy residential village; This magical landscape with its forests and green meadows is refreshing;
Germany skillfully utilises the occasion to show the “Third Reich” at its best ( on the back:Loyalty is the mark of honour,Von Hindenburg )
Finally we can not win with muscular or spiritual force only, externally and internally.The more these feelings have blood and race at their roots,the more succesful the effort will be.
The motto of the Olympic games :Fortius,Altius Citius (Stronger,higher,faster)
On the opening day of the Olympic Games the airship “Hindenburg” captained by Dr.Hugo Eckener,an apparent anti-Nazi) flew over the stadium and Berlin.
Mens sana in corpore sano(not Hitlers words)
On postcard; For us the future men with brilliant spirit period in a beautiful body is our highest ideal;
New people are born from earth’s womb and fight forever for honour and victory; Slowly the tree of friendly competition blossoms into a different flower as sports become a consciously felt meaning of life; The era of machinery and motors casts men into a new form. The pure magnificence of the body is revealed to be a miracle of nature and considered to be of equal state to the realm of spirituality; The naturalness of acting and thought returns on a national level. This era was still dawning when the classic sites of antiquity were carefully lifted into the light of sun and perception by German scientists; ( L.E.May )
Athens 1896 , Berlin 1936 , Tokyo 1940
The flags of Germany, Greece and Japan are hoisted on the olympic victory masts; A voice sounds from their visible heights:” I call the youth of the world to Tokyo”; Hands join and the earth’s nations are peacefully united in the magic of Olympia.
Leading in this process is radio technology, as new technologies had to be developed to deal with this special tasks in the giant stadiums with their complicated acoustics.
Not only the big sports events and the exemplary arenas are admirable, but also the fantastic technical apparatus which has made the recording, processing, preparation and execution possible;
May the Olympic flame shine through all generations for the benefit of humanity in its strie for a more courageous and purest world. (Baron de Coubertin )
The fine architectural colonnade at the Olympic arena is a wonderful sight;
State, government and people are united in supporting the will of Adolf Hitler in calling the youth of the world to the German Heimat; The youth of foreign countries looks with astonishment
at the wonderful image of German unity and future
The final scene is tremendous; United States and Germany; The United States, with their incomparable sense of justice ( later the multinational warmongers ) and with their numerous non-Arians, are for the German people the most powerful sports competitors; In comes Germany, the Swastika banner at its head. Behind it, Reichssportfuehrer von Tschammer and Osten leads his Olympic team, dressed in dazzling white, through the Marathon Gate. The German hymn resounds with mighty power. The march of nations is ended.
Every German speaker is overwhelmed with emotion as German winners are honoured! The Deutschland Lied and the Horst Wessel Lied emanate from the throats of hundreds of thousands of people.
The Fuehrer stays until the last competitor have left the arena; The wonderful day comes to an end , unforgettable for those who lived it ,incomparable in its harmoniousness and beauty, its solemnity and purity, realising the highest ideals of humanity;
The entry of the contending nations begins. A strict tradition is being followed; Greece is given the all-time honour to lead the march, followed by the other nations in alphabetical order; The end is brought about by the host country; Applause and cheers roar over the contenders; People from all around the world meet at the festival of peace; The blue-and-white flag of Greece is lowered in front of the VIP stand as a greeting, and the guests all salute the German Fuehrer with raised hands.
For Goebbels, it is not interesting that somebody wins, but that he is a German; Or, if that is not possible, at least an Arian. In the third Reich, sport is a matter of propaganda;
The Olympic flame burns in Berlin. An enormous wave of enthusiasm swells up and continues to flow with an ever increasing volume and power over man and his work;
The Olympic Games now belong to the past; They have gone down in the history of sports and nations; A new era began with these universal games, especially with regard to our fatherland; Germany’s youth had convincingly shown its athletic abilities.; 33 gold, 26 silver and 30 bronze medals were won by our young men and women for their fatherland; And this is the country of Adolf Hitler! The whole world recognises with admiration what the Fuehrer has created; He and he alone was the originator of the most wonderful Olympic Games of all times in the whole wide world; Only two nations dominated the Olympic Games 1936, Germany and the United States; We are the leading sports nation in the world and our thanks go only to Adolf Hitler. (Ludwig Hayman,former heavyweight boxer ).
The Cigaretten-Bilderdienst edited many books during the Nazi period; The Garbaty-Cigaretten-Factory wanted to give its customers complementary pleasure;
Cheers of joy as the retrieval of youth and energy are addressed with unrestrained openness at all the young messengers from all nations ; Nowhere in the world were both men and space so filled with the Olympic spirit as in Berlin. State, government and people are one in supporting the will of Adolf Hitler, who called the youth of the world to the German “Heimat”. (From : Olympia)
From the newspaper :”Der Mittag”
By God, this entry of the participants of all nations; But whilst everybody is listening breathlessly to music and cheering, the last torch bearer appears and runs through the stadium with the holy flame, lit at the altar of Olympia, mounts the steps to the sacrificial bowl and lights the Olympic flame, which will from now on burn continuously throughout the Olympics Games.
***And here comes Spyridon Lenis the Greek ,who won the first marathon of the modern games in Athens 40 years ago and who, dressed in the national costume of his home country mounts the steps to the Fuehrer and hands him the olive branch from the Olympic Grove;
Flaming torch passed from hand to hand
Highlight : the daily visit of the Fuehrer!
The highlight was the daily visit of the Fuehrer, an integral part of the festive days that could not have been missed, which stimulated general enthusiasm, incited the German contenders,both female and male and brilliantly underlined the significance of those days in the eyes of the Germans and the whole world;
Over all obstacles of the Olympic idea as an ideal of peace unites the outstanding athlets of the world and constitutes as such the recognition of a new universal concept of harmony of body, spirit and soul; ( The fascinating eloquence of Dr.Josef Goebbels led to this imaginative picture of the Olympic Games);
The Fuehrer appears saluted with cheers. The hymn of German fighting spirit;
Dark clouds float over Europe! In anxious anticipation millions of people live in great tension, enormous revolutions discharge powerful sparks; Germany however floats like an island of peace in the sea of nations; the German people led by their Fuehrer have rediscovered their self-esteem and are passing strongly and surely through the troubles of time;
Solemn and clear the last words:” Burn, holy flame, keep on burning and never be extinguished!” sound over the large stadium. A quiet murmuring in the national banners seems to confirm their understanding;
The sports festival of all nations is displayed in magnificent splendour on this island of peace
The International Olympic committee gave the games to Germany in 1932, when Hitler was not yet in power. Starting in 1933, growing numbers of people protested against having the games in a country in which people believe in superior and inferior races, and which continues to proclaim its love for war; Other people maintained, however, that sports should be separated from politics and that it would be unfair and not “sportive“ to take the Olympic Games away from a country at the last moment! These defenders of fairness did not see that the Nazis, and especially Goebbels, used the sports event to convince their country that the world has accepted Hitler.
Everything is done to give foreign visitors a favourable opinion; They get a good impression, eating and drinking well, seeing a well tended Berlin. They start doubting the reports about concentration camps and Gestapo cellars.
The placards “Jews not admitted” disappeared from the streets; Even the journal of Julius Streicher could not be displayed in newsagents for a few weeks;
There is only one “but” to the games; They do not prove the superiority of the arian races but instead, the extraordinary performances of the American blacks;
Incomprehensible and strange is the act of fate assigning the Olympic Games to Germany when it was in the midst of bloody battles. No country on earth, however ,has earned the right to celebrate this solemn festival of youth more than Germany in this hour;
Internally the Jews in German sports leagues were subjected to the directives defended by the Director of Sports of the SA,in his book” Body training “in National Socialist thinking as follows: The Jewish leaders in sports and those contaminated by Jewish influence, the pacifists and the appeasers, and the pan -Europeans have no place on German territories;they are worse than the cholera, than pest, than syphilis, worse than the burning hoards of Mongolians, worse than fire storms, famine, breaking dikes, drought, poison gas; The world has still to face its greatest battle: the fight against Jewry.
One of the fundamental principles of the Olympic games is the solidarity of all nations and races; Hitler announced that the government of the Reich would respect the rights of non-arians throughout the Olympic games; The outside world was misled by this promise. (“ The yellow stain”) by Lion Feuchtwanger.
Publicity card .Think of Olympia 1936! ( Support fund )
Trumpet blasts break the silence, Hitler, Fuehrer of the Reich, patron of the Olympic Games, comes down the steps that lead to the internal arena next to the marathon gate;
Next to him walk Count Baillet – Latour and his Excellence Lewald,both wearing the Olympic chain of office; All arms go up as if to say : you have given a miracle to us and the world; Accompanied by the music of Wagner’s “Huldigungsmarsch”( March of honour) Hitler
mounts the steps of the VIP stand. On reaching his seat he greets his people; The German hymn is played,and the German nation sings with heartfelt emotion.
The Olympic idea was deeply engraved in hearts and minds;
The loudspeaker asks to listen to the words of the initiator of the Olympic Games, Baron Pierre de Coubertin, spoken from the quietness of his home to the world : The idea of the Olympic Games is not victory but participation; Its aim is not contention, but chivalry;
The ocean of Berlin’s houses trembles with the expectation of events never seen before; The greatest event is still to come and the flapping of the banners in the festive decorations is no more than a forewarning of dawning greatness.
All streets are packed. The Regimental band of the “Watchregiment Berlin” plays a big wake-up call at eight o’clock in the morning. There are huge poles with enormous Swastika-Banners everywhere.
An endless stream of people floods the Main Street.
A Compatriot answers: The fact alone that such a despicable and discredited contemporary such as Dr Goebbels has the audacity to speak on behalf of our fallen, our fighters, and our workers, is pure scorn and derision and really makes an answer superfluous. Nevertheless â€“ we again need to become used to not allowing his one-sided Party arguments and moral sermons to go unchallenged, but rather to contradict him through the opinion of an open-minded nation. Because the author of the so-called “Thirty war articles for the German nation” is the voice of a system in terms of the principle: “No answer is also an answer” he has forced the “yes” by the German nation to the right of general silence â€“ and thereby bringing us to the verge of the abyss. Here is the answer, article by article: Answer 17. Everything is transitory Everything passes by, First Heinrich Himmler goes And then the Party. Answer 18. There is no more stupid phrase than the burden of responsibility is the heaviest. What kind of responsibility is it then when the “responsible” cannot be held to account for his responsibility? But our leaderships sees to it that it cannot be brought to accountability. Answer 19. Nothing is more contemptuous than the point of view of the leadership and of hundreds of thousands of “busy” party members … [here the page ends]
West-Kurier 13 March 1945 Newspaper for the soldiers of an army Appeal by the Fuhrer to the German Wehrmacht With regard to the Heroes’ Memorial Day of 1945 the FÃ¼hrer directed the following appeal to the German Wehrmacht: Soldiers! In the peace treaty of Versailles the same opponents as today lay upon Germany the condition to disarm completely and to institute a ridiculous professional army rather than a national army. It was also solemnly promised that this disarmament would be the condition for a general worldwide disarmament. All of this was a lie and deceit. Germany had scarcely finally laid down its arms when the time began of oppression and of plundering. In the peace treaty the dismemberment of the Imperial Empire was detailed. But the hostile powers rearmed themselves as never before â€“ with Soviet Russia at the forefront. The eyes of the rest of the world were closed and so this state built up gigantic armed forces with the objective, that was never denied, to overwhelm Europe by force, rendered defenceless by the Jewry. How large the dimensions of this armament are, you know best, my soldiers from the East. If Germany had remained in its situation of military impotence, the whole of Europe would have been under Bolshevism by now, in other words the war of extermination would have been in full flow for some years already. In the knowledge of the threatening future lying across our continent I ordered immediately after I assumed power to prepare the Reich to be defended again so that there should be no fear of at least a minor attack. But this only happened after our enemies denied my numerous offers for a general disarmament, to limit the size of the air force, to exclude warfare by bomber aircraft, to eliminate heavy artillery and armour, to limit troops to a minimum number, etc. This denial simultaneously showed us the brutal objectives of our enemies. Now 10 years have passed since March 1935 when general military service was instituted and Germany had possession of a means of power that was necessary to maintain itself. Without this action there would now have been no Germany anymore. The Jewish alliance between capitalism and Bolshevism threatening Europe today, has in the meantime lifted the veil from the gigantic armament efforts to destroy our continent. Nevertheless the German Reich, shamelessly betrayed by most of its allies, has now been offering military resistance for more than six years and achieved victories of unique proportions. Even if fate has seemingly conspired against us there is no doubt that these set-backs will be overcome, as so often before, with courage, persistence and fanaticism. There is no great historical state in the past that did not find itself in a similar state: Rome in the second war against Carthage, the Prussians in the seven year war against Europe. These are but two examples from many. It is, therefore, my irrevocable decision and it has to be our resolute general will not to give the world around the kind of bad example that this world has given us. The year 1918 will thus not be repeated. We all know what otherwise the fate of Germany will be. Drunk from their victorious inebriation our opponents have already announced: The extermination of the German nation. Today, since the tenth anniversary of the day is approaching on which national military service was instituted, there is only one commandment: To do everything with bitter determination to withstand the dangers, to effect the turning of the tide and to strengthen materially and spiritually the aim of our nation and of its Wehrmacht. And equally our resistance has to be fanatical to crush those who seek to resist. When a great nation, such as the German, with a history of nearly two thousand years never allows to lose its faith in success, but fulfils its duty fanatically, regardless of whether better or worse times are approaching, then the almighty Lord will eventually not withhold his blessings. Who fails in history, has been found as too light and the God of the worlds only help them who are determined to help themselves! We are already experiencing in large parts of the East what is facing our nation and also in many parts of the West. What we thus have to do is quite clear: Offer resistance as long as possible and hit back against the enemy so that they would become tired and then fall apart! ….
West Falian Daily Newspaper ‘Neuer Emsbote,’ 19 February 1943. Arousing and compelling speech by Dr Goebbels in the Sports Palace. The nation is standing up! The storm is erupting! The world will soon recognise what the unanimous will of some 90 million can achieve. There is no turning back anymore, only forwards now! In Germany’s greatest hour the Lord God sent us the greatest leader of all times! … Stalingrad was and is the greatest warning cry of fate to the German nation! A nation that has the strength to suffer such a misfortune and overcome this, and yes, to garner strength from this, is unconquerable. The memory of the heroes of Stalingrad should be a strong duty for me and for all…
18 October 1941. In terms of certain information it would appear that the Germans are slowing down their march on Moscow. Did they not introduce their victory song somewhat too early? 20 October 1941. Allieri reported on a long conversation with Von Ribbentrop who played the old song again: Victory has been reached, the Russian army has been smashed and England’s days are numbered. In addition the armoured divisions outside Moscow came to a halt facing strong fortifications and many German soldiers will still have to call for their mothers before the Reich’s banners would be waved in front of the Kremlin. In the meantime winter is creeping up! (Count Galeazzo Ciano: Diaries)
[continued] … nation that is a rock of iron from which all attempts bounce off to break it. It was created during long peaceful times and killing the highest moral strength of the national soul bit by bit, namely the love for the fatherland for which no sacrifice is too high. Therefore, oh Lord, rather give us some war again, so that the ‘Teutonic furore’ so that its sharp sword can hack through the tied knot of the essentially Jewish and its national inciting press. We are facing large changes. Whoever has ears to hear, let him hear: Our father did not only give us Jewish prophets!” (Editorial committee of the viribus unitis appeal, PO Box 17 Weimar. 1912!
“May Jupiter grant that the Germans will acknowledge their strength, grant that they will aspire to loftier matters with their diligence. They will then not be people, but gods!” We were not spared the war and rather earlier than later before the ongoing destructive process in the interior diminishes the probability of victory. The great capital, dominated by liberalism, of course does not fear anything more than a courageous, enthusiastic and belligerent … [continued]

“For weeks our soldiers did not attack Kiev to save German blood and because the leadership knows that this city will in any event fall into our hands, where last Saturday the encompassing battle came to an end. The enemy may of course not learn of this plan. In the meantime the mendacious British propaganda news is claiming that our attack faltered because pest amongst the corpses has broken out. Mr Bramsig and Mrs KnÃ¶terrich heard this on the English radio during their edification time and furthermore said that rumour has it that a wife or a mother whose husband or son is stationed near Kiev are thus full of concern and heart ache, and we cannot tell them the truth because we have to remain silent in the interests of our soldiers!” (Goebbels: The Iron Heart) 5 October 1941

Milton Shulman in “Defeat in the West” “There is no army, no British and no American, that can encircle or capture us! It is certain that we will be victorious in this war. It is equally certain that our illustrious divisions will never stop fighting and that they will do their duty – unconquered right to the end of the war. Whoever thinks and speaks differently will get a good clip in the face! Order of the Day on 14 August 1944 from Lieutenant General Richard Schimpf.

Because the handsome, heroic, talented Captain Prien by far outshone his superiors in terms of popularity, it was decided to cut him down to size. He should take to sea in a U-boat that needs repairs! He refuses, is arrested, disappears in a concentration camp and dies in the damp cells of the military detention barracks of Torgau! On 24 May 1941 the public heard: “Prien did not return from a voyage against the enemy!”

“Thursday afternoon the first division of our victorious army marched into the Reich capital through the Brandenburg Gate. They are men from especially Berlin and Brandenburg who are received here by a grateful Berlin population after long and hard months of warfare. Now many families in Berlin will hear of the heroic deeds from their fathers and sons. Now they can be cheered and be thanked by those present. On the breast of some men shines the ribbon of the Iron Cross. Now the day of honour has arrived that will remain a great memory for everyone.” (War reporter Lieutenant Heysing) (From: Advance across Battlefields by Kurt Hesse)
Makeshift gantry rather than blown up bridge. The enemy is destroyed. The way is open again. Free for the infantry to race on further, free for the heroic sappers who now start with bridge-building, free for the larger part of our troops. The crossing has been forced…” War correspondent Dr Storz.

The banner of the new German infantry: The black Iron Cross with a silver border, with four swastikas on the corners, in which an eagle stands on top of a swastika.
The new ensigns issued in 1936 are different for the army, air force and navy.
Hagen of Tronje maliciously murdered the great hero, Siegfried (of the Nibelungen). With the victory of the Nazis a whole number of new banners, standards and flags were introduced. A banner is always bound to a pole, while a flag is hoisted and hauled from its pole. A standard is mostly a small square banner.
Banners and standards are symbols of loyalty, unity and solidarity. The Reich banner showed 955 AD (the battle of Lochtfolde), Archangel Michael, and later the eagle. From the white dress of the orders and the black cross of the German order of knights the Prussian colours of white and black came into being.
German nation! At this moment an advance is taking place that is the largest in terms of expanse and scope that the world has ever seen. In the company of Finnish fighters, the victors of Narvik are standing at the northern Arctic Ocean. The formations of the German eastern front range from East Prussia to the Carpathians. On the banks of the Pruth to the lower regions of the Danube to the beaches of the Black Sea German and Romanian soldiers are united under head of state Antonescu! The objective of this front is thus not the protection of individual countries anymore, but the security of Europe and thereby everybody’s salvation! (22 July 1941) Inexorably the German march advanced through the villages burnt down by the Soviets! Flowers for the German liberation troops â€“ in rolling attacks the German Luftwaffe decimated Soviet aircraft with its rows of Red bombers. In Ukraine the German soldiers were welcomed as liberators. Dr Ley: We have the best soldiers on earth. They persevere in the East amongst unimaginably cold conditions. Stalin had hoped differently. He believed that he would be able to win with the masses of his people, but Stalin is wrong. The German soldier will break down the immensely large steppes, the Red czar and his masses. Our soldier even conquers natural disasters and also the cruelty of the Bolshevists! (Ley: The big Hour).
Dr Ley: The German genius is triumphant! The most highly paced Bolshevist is in all aspects always still lower than the must humble German person! 2 February 1942 The German Sixth Army was cut off at Stalingrad. The catastrophe has arrived!

20 July 1944, or 8 August 1944, was a victory of the Party over the generals. On 20 July the generals sought to assassinate Hitler and on 8 August the execution of eight generals took place by means of the rope. Although they forced the Nazis on 30 June to purge their own ranks, the account was paid on 8 August, because their victories that they achieved after the outbreak of war for the Nazis, suddenly did not count anymore after their losses. With the day of the attempted assassination of Hitler came the disgrace and ignominy that has ever been perpetrated upon a German general, and with him, also the whole of the officers’ corps. This became the day on which eight generals were hanged on the gallows!
30 June 1934 saw a victory of the Reich army generals over Nazidom. The tragedy of the whole of the German nation was encapsulated in their lack of understanding value of this victory. The generals felt that they were not a match for the lack of scruples and of the brutality that the Nazis used ostensibly to save and preserve their powerful positions in the state. They committed the mortal error to leave the power in the state to the Nazis! They had to abandon their last positions of power step by step! Ultimately the generals were forced to give up the homogeneity of the Reich armed forces and of the officers’ corps in return for which they received a Trojan horse in the form of an army of a million men with grandiose equipment.
“Raid” As soon as one had heard this word in the occupied territories the streets emptied of people. Everyone rushed to his hiding place to avoid falling in the hands of the “green police”. Even women and children fled because it was possible to be shot senselessly without any reason! Hitler before the special court in the Munich military training institute in Blutenburg Street on 26 February 1924, after the failed attempt of 9 February1923: “I believe that the hour will arrive when the masses who are today standing on the streets with our swastika banners will unite with those whop had shot us on 9 November. I believe that the blood will not divide us for ever. When I learned that the green police had fired on us I had a lucky feeling: it was at least not the Imperial army. The hour will arrive one day when the Imperial armed forces will stand on our side!” (Hitler Process, p. 269).
“Upon the declaration of war rationing immediately came into effect … We have also developed in all areas our German possibilities to the utmost … They will not be able to subjugate us in the least either militarily or economically. Only one can win here, and that is us!!”
Shortly after the FÃ¼hrer leaving the citizen’s beer hall on 8 November 1939, a heavy explosion happened at the place where the FÃ¼hrer had stood! (Unfortunately the FÃ¼hrer was not there anymore!…) “The circumstances that point towards England, are being investigated” (Newspaper report).
On 8 November 1939, apropos the commemoration of 9 November 1923 in the beer hall in Munich, the FÃ¼hrer addressed the old warriors of the Nazi party.
Songs of the Hitler Jugend We have not yet come to an end The struggle is not yet over Our hands are folded into fists We are still not going home The first battle was won This was only the beginning: Continue fighting, storm columns, For Hitler’s dictatorship! “I have calculated in every possibility right from the start!”

A system of bunkers made a peaceful crossing impossible. High above the water of the Meuse splashed under a hail of bullets and it is no reassuring feeling to see our sappers in their MG clothing…” (War reporter Biebrach in Southern Holland).
The first four paragraphs of the German soldier’s catechism read as follows: 1. The Wehrmacht is the arms carrier of the German nation. It shields the German Reich and the fatherland, the nation united in Nazism and its territory. The sources of its power lie in a glorious past, in the German nationhood, the German earth and German labour. Service in the Wehrmacht is an honourable service to the German nation. 2. The honour of a German soldier lies in his uncompromising commitment of his person to the nation and fatherland right up to sacrificing his life. 3. The highest soldier’s virtue is his bellicose courage. He encourages hardness and decisiveness. Cowardice is intolerable and vacillation is unsoldierly. 4. Obedience is the basis of the Wehrmacht, belief is the basis of obedience.
Already since the days of Frederick the Great the Germans have looked with fear and respect to soldiers. It was, therefore, only natural that the soldiers doing general national service would so readily adopt the discipline that encouraged the cult of the professional soldiers. The thought of a complete subjugation to a Fuhrer was strengthened considerably by the approach of Nazism and its theory of a ‘Fuhrer principle.’ The officer corps made an idol of discipline and in this way suppressed any secret resistance that could break out amongst the soldiers.
It depends on you! â€“ It depends on you! In you hands lie the fatherland’s good and bad fortune! It depends on you! As heavy as never before your action in this high moment. It depends on you, you, the farmer behind the plough you, the labourer who operates the machine it depends on you who thinks boldly in your spiritual flight of the last wonder of the universe. It depends on you Your sacrifice builds the stages from night and ice towards the eternal light It depends on you! The expensive dead are calling Horst Wessel is watching you: Do your duty! Heinrich Hanacker, from ‘German reader for national schools.”
“I would like to close now by referring to those nameless ones who are now fulfilling their duty no less than those millions who are doing their duty and placing life and limb in peril and who were prepared at any time to bring the highest sacrifice as German officers and soldiers for their nation as a man has to offer. Many of them now lie imbedded on the side of the graves in which their fathers from the Great War are resting. They are the symbols of the hundreds of thousands of musketeers, anti-tank gunners and armoured protectors, sappers and gunners, sailors of the navy, and men of the air force, men of the Waffen SS and of all the other combatants in the German Wehrmacht who have stood up for freedom and the future of our nation and for the eternal size of the Nazi Great German Reich!” (Germany, Sieg heil!)
We will never forget you Who marches you into death We measure in your heroes’ death What this time delivers. You are the death’s pains, The soft reconciliatory sense Of the nation kneels with a burning heart before our sacrifices. You hear the shots echoing With bodies covered by blood You could not make a fist anymore You knew he did not fall: You knew the FÃ¼hrer is alive! (Gerhard Schumann)
“Last night regular Polish troops fired shot on our own territory. As from 05:45 we are returning the fire! And from now on every bomb will be retaliated by another. Whoever fights with gas will know we fight back with gas. Whoever distances himself from the rules of humanitarian warfare, can expect nothing else from us to take the same steps. I will continue this struggle, regardless of against whom, for as long as it takes to guarantee the security of the Reich and its rights. I have now been working for more than six years in building the German Wehrmacht up again. In this time more than 90 billion Marks have been spent in rebuilding our Wehrmacht. It is today the best equipped and it is far beyond comparison with the year of 1914. My confidence in you is unshakeable.” (Speech on 5 September 1939)
German Nazism was the most dangerous exponent of German militarism, the hereditary and vile evil that has made the German nation ill for many centuries and from which the healing can only be successful if this militarism can be eradicated from top to bottom.
Militarism is always and everywhere an aggressor’s spirit. His core being was always the corps of officers, the brotherhood of war labourers, a preferred caste, the idol of a nation. The power state recruited its henchmen amongst these and surrounded them with the glory of a “hero” and they are simultaneously also virtuous heroes!
German militarism means the destruction of the so-called “Prussian spirit” and this is the dubious merit of Nazism that it popularised this Prussian spirit into the Nazi spirit and forced this upon the nation in all its classes, provinces and districts and inculcated especially the German youth.

The organisation of “education before and after military service”. Until the outbreak of the war it was foreseen that youth would leave the Hitler Jugend upon becoming 18 years old and then enter the Reich labour corps in conjunction with doing a two year stint of national military service. After his period in the Wehrmacht he became a so-called “after military educated,” submitting to the SA. In terms of the “Fuhrer’s order” of 27 January 1939 a “commanding council” was founded specifically for the SA. This organisation was of significant importance that was neither respected nor acknowledged by military experts from abroad. Without this newly created organisation it would have been impossible in the autumn of 1944 to establish the so-called Volkssturm and the National Grenadier Division and to let it arise from the earth apparently from one day to the next. All reserve officers too who were not liable for military duty anymore, were encompassed by this organisation and drawn in as instruction officers.
“In their education towards heroic people,” the German youth was brutalised against “people not like us”. The biggest brutes became the “best heroes” The old customs of good manners and morals became twisted. To breed a “characteristic” race extramarital sex was not only tolerated, but it was encouraged. In some defined geographical areas the aiding and abetting gave rise to coercion. A long healing process was needed until the recuperation was visible.” (Orb)
“The Nazi state recognised correctly that parents and family had a decisive influence on the education of their children. Therefore, it saw to it that the German youth would be alienated to a large degree from the parental homes. The co-determination of the parents on the education of their children was minimised. In decisive matters it was completely abolished. Parents were powerless against any ‘order’ that a 12 or 14 year old banner bearing leader gave to their 8 or 10 year old son!”
The old Barbarossa the Emperor Friederich in the underground castle he stays there bewitched. He has never died he is thus still alive lost in the castle he lay down to sleep. He took upon himself the empire’s splendour and will one day be resurrected together with you, at his own time. The throne is of ivory upon which the Emperor sits the table is of marble that supports his head. His beard is not flaxen it is the fire’s glow it grew through the table upon which his chin rests. It nods as if in a dream his half open eye twinkles and after a long while he winks at a boy. He speaks in his sleep to the boy: “Go to the front of the castle, oh gnome and see whether the magpies are still flying around on the mountain. And if the old magpies are still flying there so I need to sleep further bewitched for another hundred years. Friedrich RÃ¼ckert (16 May 1788 – 31 January 1866) And when stupid flags are flown around the castle I fly to my ancestors and I climb on my steed. (Added later)

Kyffhauser is in the Wald Mountains in northern Thuringia. Tales relate of the return of Emperor Friedrich the Red Beard who is buried there. The Imperial association of German students was founded 1881. It was in the forefront for a national monument for the students’ movement. The Imperial association of war veterans (established 1898) is the leading organisation of all German war veterans’ associations, alter incorporated into the Nazi Reich war veterans’ association. The Kyffhauser war veterans’ association has declared that it is loyal to Hitler.

The Nazi Reich war veterans’ association emerged from the Imperial Kyffhauser war veterans’ association was the leading organisation of the associations and leagues of previous members of the old Imperial army, navy and colonial troops, the Imperial armed forces and of the new Wehrmacht. The leader of the Reich war veterans was Gen Reinhard.
Our indestructible belief: “My mission as standard bearer of the movement is to proceed uninterruptedly in front. As long as fate allows me to live, so long will I carry this flag and never haul it down and never roll it up.” Hitler 22 January 1933. The Fuhrer’s words have become for us memorable words of a specific kind because we always experience it again that when the FÃ¼hrer speaks, that wonderful power that emanates from him to all of us and that these by themselves give us security and confidence. The FÃ¼hrer has allied himself with the German nation and this duty bounds us to the movement of standard bearers. (18 April 1941).
Versailles By Ernst Kleuker “Father!”- “My boy?” – “Tell me, have you ever wept?” Do men also weep? Say: has an enemy ever conquered you? Father, don’t laugh! See how grey your hair became And when you laugh, your laughter is not honest!” “But I’m your boy and one day I’ll be a man, One day I’ll force others, which today I cannot do! Don’t shake your head so wearily and in suffering The youth wants to fight; he is steeled by derision.” “Boy, my last son: hear my word: The war sometimes whisks away the eldest It brought him down to earth in a maniac’s game And I â€“ was proud, because he fell in the name of pride!” “Mother? â€“ yes, I often find mothers as being too soft â€“ Mother was ill and followed him soon after Then â€“ peace came that broke Germany asunder Son, ‘Versailles’ is the name of our shame!” When you hear ‘Versailles, then you turn scarlet from shame: This is the name of the word that removed our honour from us! When you hear ‘Versailles’ your hand clamps together, and this is the name of the word that broke our country asunder!” When you hear ‘Versailles’ then your head hangs, because your fathers believed traitors. When you hear ‘Versailles’ give death your blessing Rather rotten than brutalised in disdain!” “Look, you are young â€“ my heart is torturing me: Still, believe in the sun, be glad when you joke, Don’t listen to the shout from the robbed land Don’t look at the hate around the smouldering fire.” “Father, stop! Because my word is my bond!” “Germany is not perishing, it is still only asleep, Germany is ill and it is awaiting its time, Germany will one day again wear its robe with pride, Germany needs to go down pitch black ways, Germany must die in order to be resurrected, Germany lives forever! ‘Versailles’ is the name of the appeal That will see Germany’s boys becoming men!”

Lieutenant General Friedrich Christiansen, called in the army “the old papa” was a famous pilot in the First World War 1914-1918 and received the then highest Prussian wartime order, “Pour le Merite”. In 1930 he was the Commander of the Do X (American Flight) and he was later engaged at the Dornier aircraft company. He was not, as was normal, from the cavalry, but he came from the navy as lieutenant commander to the flying corps. He was a personal friend of Udet and Goring, he was no old party member and was thus not promoted to Reich leader of the Nazi party but only as corps leader of the Nazi Flying Corps. “When the invasion was threatening in 1940/41”, for which the Luftwaffe was supposed to be the spearhead, he was appointed as Holland’s Military Governor. (H Orb)
Dr Arthur Seyss-Inquardt was Reich Governor in 1938/1939 in occupied Austria and then became a Reich Minister. His treason against Austria after the annexation earned him the gratitude of the Nazis. When the “need arose to place the neutrality of Belgium and the Netherlands ‘under the armed guard of the Reich’ and provided proof at the time that ’the former government of the Kingdom of the Netherlands was neither in the position nor seriously willing to apply the obligations in international law emanating from the declaration of neutrality”, Seyss-Inquardt was named by the Fuhrer after the capitulation of the Dutch army as Reich Commissioner. He started his duty in a festive way on 25 May 1940. (Du Prel/Janke: The Netherlands)

Dutch East Company Dutch land Class Urban dwellers descended from farmers Let your son become a farmer and return to the land. Farmers’ inputs in Eastern Europe are opening up and there are many possibilities for you and your son. Farming leader Roskam, leader of the Dutch land class, will be speaking to you about this on 28 June 1943 in the Krasnapolsky Hotel, starting at 2 o’clock.
The working environment of the Nazi party in the Netherlands has the aim and the will not to allow anyone to be outdone it in its efforts on behalf of the Fuhrer and to concretise in exemplary fashion the idea of a communal life between the Germans and the cohabitation with the Netherlands in terms of Nazidom.
The Netherlands’ Germanness does not stand aside anymore as a small slandered and ridiculed group, but it is today the best representative of National Socialism in the Dutch territory for the continually growing understanding between the Dutch and Germans.
“The will to common labour by all Nazis was most clearly demonstrated at the festivities arranged by the Dutch Nazi organisation (NSB) for the Fuhrer’s birthday in 1941. For the first time representatives from the Dutch group spoke at all Nazi local branches and agreed to their alliance with all Germanic people under Adolf Hitler! (Reich Party Office Leader Sommer)

YANKEE, ENGLISHMAN, BOLSHEVIC, THEY ALL DANCE TO THE PIPING OF THE JEWISH CLIQUE!
Blood and ground The foundation on which a real vibrant nation is based, are blood and earth. Blood: Life itself, both of the nation and of compatriots, it binds individuals to clans and clans to nations. Blood is and simultaneously symbolises the vitality of a nation. Earth: It gives life and it dissolves this in the eternal cycle of creation and decay. The earth is and simultaneously symbolises the conditions of life of a nation. It is not be coincidence that reference is made to a real vibrant nation. One could use the Jewish nation as example where the bond of blood and of clans is present – but where the link with the earth is lacking – then it becomes apparent that this nation is not really vibrant. Exactly this being removed from his own piece of earth, “ubi bene ibi patria,” gave course and direction to the Jews â€“ apart from his strong bonds of blood â€“ and contributed to their parasitic role that this nation has played in world affairs since early times.
Our emblem The wolf’s hook is a sign (it presumably came about as a combination between the Germanic writing signs of […] and […] meaning victory, and […] emergency, danger, with which the German nations sought to denote places where wolves were known to have been sighted. The wolf’s hook simultaneously a sign of caution for whomever entered onto that site and also a magical sign to ward off any danger. This is why the wolf’s hook is this magazine’s emblem the aim of which is to inform our nation of its own character and its own strength so that hey can maintain themselves in the midst of the dangers threatening their existence.
What earlier was incredible for us, happened in this way. The Germanic person was pushed from the centre-point of his existence, his world was uprooted, and his spiritual world was dissolved! One thing though could not be taken away from him: his racial identity. This wonderful fact gave rise to the fact that resistance has continually taken place, sometimes even vehemently. This resistance is also now occurring with a resolute, revolutionary violence under the genial leadership of Adolf Hitler! Even if racial degradation is increasingly encouraged by means of racial mixing on the part of the decadent materialism in all its forms, our racial identity is indeed the only factor that has elevated itself above every external influence. This is where the eternal value of our blood is situated! Each time the unsullied is reborn in a young Germanic child who grows up and quite soon would want to be completely himself.

In the first instance the German Fuhrer is a National Socialist. He is no conqueror, but a prophet. He is the creator of a new world. He is a man who has always demonstrated that he understands what a mature culture is that is not driven by capitalist tendencies, but which feels responsible for preserving the civilisation that white nations have built up over centuries, that will not destroy it but will preserve it even when it is alien to its own spirit and its own nation.

Your place is in the Dutch Labour Service [right] And look here at the Labour Service that will place the deeper and liberating feeling of labour again in the hands of the Dutch youth. In what way? The name is self-explanatory: by working while serving, by working as a service, as an offering, yes, as a service of honour for nation and country. The youth that is noble-minded and readily gives will find the Labour Service as an opportunity to get to work and to do something for the benefit of the fatherland. Do you want to learn what kind of comradeship this labour can provide, how much energy this can emanate, how much pleasure even the most simple work – together and singly and done at the behest of your country and nation – will give you? Do you want to experience how artificial contradictions and schisms are that are based on difference in descent, development, religion, and spirituality, and how to bridge these with ease? Do you want to experience with others a spiritually and bodily enervating camp life where you will be transformed into a Dutchman who is worthy of his place in society? Well then… Go and register yourself! The registration for voluntary service in the Labour Service is available for all male Dutch citizens. These Dutch need to comply with the following conditions: 1. They need to be no younger than 17 and no older than 23; 2. They need to be unmarried; 3. They need to be healthy. Registration at: a. all municipal offices; b. all labour offices; c. the staff of the Dutch Labour Service, 59 Gevers Deynoot Road, Scheveningen; Tel. No. ‘s-Gravenhage 55.36.95.
To the Fascist Young Women The Fascist young woman knows what she is: a future mother, being the moral basis on which the state rests. This conscience gives her an elevated feeling of responsibility: this conscience gives her dignity. A person without anxiety is an irresponsible person. To have duties is to have anxieties and is to be responsible. The fascist young woman is not afraid of having anxieties. She knows that internal struggles lead to a person reaching self-realisation. Important things are not reached without struggles. Only when one has struggled to achieve something, does one realise what it is worth. The fascist young woman no longer asks for personal rights, for pleasure or to be gaudy. She knows she has a high calling.

Why Mussert is showing the way In 1931 Mussert showed the way towards the new Europe. For nearly nine years he brought the truth to the attention of the Dutch population without needing to be concerned about “popular favour” or “support”. All these years Mussert, in full view of the whole of the Dutch nation, described the views in word and in deed and led throughout in accordance with the lines of the Dutch Nazi Party. Mussert was the best and thus also the most dangerous Dutch Nazi for politicians. Mussert was also the man who was most exposed to terror, slander, calumny by aliens and their flunkies in the political parties. Mussert lost his job in 1934 because he rated the struggle for the future of his nation than the interest of his own community job.

Appeal to the citizens of Oldenzaal You will all know that on 26 August a rubberised cable of the German Wehrmacht was cut in this town. Hitherto the perpetrator(s) has/have not been detected. Of course a similar deed that cannot be condoned, with which nothing at all can be achieved, will not be tolerated in the least by the German occupying power in time of war. They have reiterated that if this to be repeated, the strongest possible measures will be taken. I can tell you that should a similar case happen again in future the most severe penalties can be expected in terms of which severe measures – even leading to shooting – of fellow citizens who have been taken as hostages will follow. Until now only light penalties have been instituted against the population, such as cable guard duties, confiscation of radios and house arrest for juveniles. The perpetrators should and must be found! I am, therefore, urgently appealing to all of you who will condemn these deeds from the bottom of your heart to prevent all deeds of such sabotage, that the London radio and others are encouraging. The fomenters stay behind the scenes. You are carrying the brunch and become the victims! I am strongly appealing to you to inform me or the police of every case that may lead to sabotage. I am referring inter alia to the circulation of anonymous letters encouraging sabotage, suspected persons, rumours, etc. Anything that you may convey to me or the police will be treated in strict confidence. Especially parents and teachers of the youth should all co-operate. The acting Mayor of Oldenzaal AHG Weustink Oldenzaal, 4 October 1941.

Out of sheer sadism the Germans feigned that the Dutch have cut German Wehrmacht cables. As a result practically all young Jews in Twente were arrested, taken to Mauthausen and murdered there.

How are families of volunteers cared for? [top third column] Who can register himself? Dutch from Aryan blood in the ages of 17 to 45 years (also married) who are well developed physically and also psychologically and who can devote themselves fully to the challenges that their training demand. For what period does one commit himself? Duration of the war. 2 – 4 years. It is possible to commit oneself for a longer period. Who can become an officer? Anyone can become an officer in the Waffen SS who has proven his proficiency after a year’s service. His school record is not a determining factor. The eventual promotion of an SS officer is determined by character, conduct and performance. In which armed sections can one serve? The sections of the SS are … [top fourth column] … completely motorised and comprise all sections, such as infantry, cavalry, armour, anti-armour, mountaineering troops, sappers, motorised troops, intelligence corps, medical corps and anti-aircraft artillery. Placement at a guard battalion in Holland is also possible. Wishes in terms of a specific section are accommodated as far as possible after completion of basic training. Dutchmen initially serve in “their” SS regiment, “Westland”. What follows afterwards? After demobilisation a volunteer is returned to his previous occupation. Upon resuming his old work he is supported in all possible ways. For volunteers who served longer (2 or 4 years) placement at the police or other services is also possible. If you so desire, you can also obtain German nationality. [bottom] Follow the call of honour and conscience!

Mr JE Scharrenburg had to serve time in the prison in Zwolle for “insulting” a member of the Dutch Nazi party. He served 14 days. The insult was calling the Nazi a “traitor.” Scharrenburg subsequently made a declaration that he had lost his identity document, but in reality he gave this to the underground movement for its use.
Since the neutral south eastern states refused to allow war to be waged in favour of the plutocracies, the latter planned with the permission of Holland and Belgium to invade Germany. And also this time the Fuhrer went one better than his opponents. On 10 may German troops crossed the Dutch and Belgian borders. And so the Great German army entered into a decisive struggle in terms of the Fuhrer’s call on the soldiers at the western front that “the fate of the German nation will be decisive for the next thousand years.”
The Herrenvolk along Holland’s roads. “There is darkness everywhere where the Germans are seen.” (Queen Wilhelmina on Radio Oranje.)
“German honour is German trustworthiness” (Himmler) “Concentrate on the victory! The Fuhrer is a unique example for you as a German! One of the essential characteristics of the unique genius, Adolf Hitler, is that this titan understands how to concentrate on the efforts that need to be solved first.” (Dr Ley)
Colonel Brauer, the first parachute soldier, the conqueror of Dordrecht and Moerdijk. This is how the war started for the Dutch: During the early hours of 10 May 1940 many hundreds of German aircraft flew into our territory and released countless parachute troops over our airports and bridges. So our small country was overwhelmed callously and treacherously. And this by a neighbour who feigned his friendship with us! (From: ‘Five moving Years.’) “To the soldiers on the Dutch war theatre. For five days you attacked a strong, well-prepared army and surmounted apparently invincible obstacles and military fortresses that were strongly defended. You knocked out their air force (about 20 aircraft) and then forced them to surrender. In doing so you rendered a performance (such as bombing Rotterdam) that is unique. On behalf of the German nation I express my thanks and my admiration.” Fuhrer’s Headquarters 16 May 1940.
“Only through your exemplary cooperation, because of the equally strong leadership, the heroism of the soldiers, as well as specifically the heroic death-defying efforts of the parachute and air transported troops this success became possible”. (Adolf Hitler) After engaging parachute troops for the first time in this war, Rotterdam capitulated on 14 May. The Dutch commander gave up his doomed resistance and ordered the Dutch army to stop fighting.”
Speech on 1 September 1939 before the Reichstag in Berlin: “The neutral states have assured us of their neutrality as such, exactly as we had assured this to them earlier. We are very resolute in our assurance!” “In secret agreements with the ostensibly neutral states of the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxemburg the English and French armies are preparing themselves to invade the Reich’s territory through these countries. Therefore, in the early hours of the morning the German army crossed the Reich’s borders and marched into Belgium, Holland and Luxemburg!”

The war has broken out! A German army consisting of 89 divisions marched into Holland, Belgium and France on the morning of 10 May. ‘The postal service has been suspended. Return to sender!’
The sender wrote on 22 November 1939: “Hopefully Holland can be saved from the war. Although here in Bolivia this is not thought feasible. The atmosphere here is currently emigration friendly and Nazi unfriendly!”
Legal sterilisation The Jewish press commission informed us that in the “Artzliche Mitteilungen” [Medical Journal] of 20 May, published by the Association of German Medical Practitioners – the so-called Hartmann Association – an article, written by Dr L Vellguth, was published about legal sterilisation. To promote racial hygiene the author demands the promulgation of a law that would grant the sterilisation of persons under certain conditions. The author writes: “With the above mind, this will unite large groups of inferior people with easily observable common characteristics. In this connection good use can be made of the divisions I made when inferior persons were registered in my district. There are seven groups: 1. Feeble minded; 2. mentally deranged; 3. epileptics; 4. unsocial ‘criminal’ elements; 5. dumb and deaf; 6. bodily debilitated because of tuberculosis; 7. persons of a foreign race.” In the further course of the article he states his opinion about each of the abovementioned groups. Regarding point 7 he wrote: “The mixture of blood of a foreign race in the organism of our nation should be avoided as far as possible. Jews, Negroes, Mongols, and such nations can thus be sterilised without any penalty and voluntarily regardless of whether they are healthy or ill.”
“Am I an Aryan or not?” Question that thousands of Germans are asking – Active work at the population register. Dr. Gercke gives orders. BERLIN – 31 May . Now that the Nazis are distinguishing between Aryan and non-Aryan races, the population register offices are overwhelmed daily by persons who like to know more about their descent, mostly hoping that they would appear to be full-blooded Aryans. Private research offices too are run off their feet by similar enquiries. Since the German bourgeoisie formally dates back to 1875, one needs to research in parish registers that date back to the 16th century both amongst Protestants and Catholics, but they are quite incomplete because much has been lost in the Thirty Year War. Dr Achim Gerke, head of the government’s office of racial research, replied in answer to a question who is and who is not an Aryan that all non-European tribes – such as Mongols and Negroes – are not Aryan. Slav nations are Aryan, but there is a difference between Aryans and persons of the Germanic race. The latter are naturally born Aryans, but vice versa not every Aryan is of the Germanic race. According to Gerke, “as far as the Nazi party is concerned only those who can prove a pure Aryan descent since 1800 belong to our race. This date was chosen because the emancipation of the Jews in the German provinces took place between 1806 and 1813 and before this it was quite impossible that Jews may have married Aryans.” (Reuter) July 1933
“Roosevelt, lackey of the Jews.”
Text on the right: Get off your high horse! Roosevelt, lackey of the Jews, has made the lying claim that Germany wants to wipe out all of the world’s religions. On November 8th, the Fuehrer replied to this accusation as follows: ‘I am now 52 years old, and I have better things to do than to occupy myself with childishness and stupidity. Moreover, it does not interest me in the least which religions exist in the world and what attitude the world’s peoples take towards these religions. The only person interested in any of this is the American President, Mr. Roosevelt. In the German Reich (and in our own view) anyone may seek his salvation in whatever way he pleases! I have read that, in the United States, it is forbidden for a preacher to argue against the state, and that soldiers are prohibited from attending such sermons. It is the same here, with one difference: that in Germany the various religions receive almost 900 million Marks from the state every year. In America, by contrast, they receive not a penny!’ Word of the Week, No. 49/1941 / Central Press of the NSDAP, Munich

Obergruppenfuhrer* Franz Ziereis, Commander of Mauthausen concentration camp and its annexes, was responsible for the death of thousands of our comrades. When his son was questioned, he made the following statement: “On my birthday, my father ordered some prisoners to be brought before me. He handed me his revolver and I used it to shoot one prisoner after another, because he wanted me to learn to shoot at living targets.” Ziereis was captured when the camp was liberated. He escaped for a time, but was later recaptured and then executed. *Translator’s Note: The rank of Obergruppenfuhrer was the highest in the SS.

“Herrenmenschen” (“Members of the Master Race”): Himmler, Kaltenbrunner and the SS Camp Commanders Ziereis and Bachmeyer, visiting Mauthausen concentration camp in 1941. Himmler and Kaltenbrunner agreed that the “re-education” of the inmates was proceeding well. (SS Archive) The wall to the right of the entrance was known as “The Wailing Wall”: Here, the prisoners had to stand up close to the stone surface with their faces to the wall, sometimes for day and nights on end. Most of these were prisoners who had not yet been checked and approved by the “Political Department”. They stood there without food or drink, and without any possibility of relieving themselves, until they collapsed. Often, naked or near-naked prisoners had to stand at the wall for three days in freezing temperatures; and at intervals of approximately three hours, they had cold water poured over them. Connected to the crematorium was the gas chamber. Cemented into the wall at the entrance was an iron structure that served as a gallows. There was a also a cellar where prisoners were shot in the neck. The gas chamber is disguised as a bathhouse, with showerheads and drains. Only one element seems out of place here: halfway up the wall, a thick iron pipe with a wide slit… *Translator’s Note: The Nazi rank of Standartenfuhrer was comparable to that of Colonel

Mauthausen Concentration Camp Upper Danube The following regulations must be observed when corresponding with prisoners: 1) Each of the prisoners in protective custody* is entitled to receive and to send two letters or cards per month from and to his family. Letters to prisoners must be written legibly in ink and may contain a maximum of 15 lines per page. Only one standard-sized page is permitted. Padded envelopes may not be used. Each letter may contain no more than five 12-Pfennig stamps. Anything more than this is forbidden and may be confiscated. Postcards are ten lines in length. Photographs may not be used as postcards. 2) It is permitted to send money, but the prisoner’s surname, first name, date of birth, prison-block and cell must be stated. 3) Newspapers are permitted, but may only be ordered via the post office of Mauthausen Concentration Camp. 4) Packages are not permitted, as the prisoners can buy everything [they need] in the camp itself. 5) It is pointless to request that the camp authorities release any of the prisoners in protective custody. 6) Visits to the prisoners in the concentration camp, or requests to speak with them, are strictly forbidden. Any postal items that fail to conform to these regulations will be destroyed.

“As a first stage in the final solution of the Jewish question, Heydrich announced, all Jews living in rural regions were to be transported to the cities. Apart from the areas east of Krakow that were densely populated with Jews, no Jewish communities with a population of less than 500 would be permitted to exist, except in places with a railway connection. Each of these was obliged to elect a ‘Jewish Council’ with at least 24 members. The main task of these Jewish Councils would be to organise the transportation or reception of those Jews who had been selected for relocation.” (Gerald Reitlingen)

On May 5th, led by the International Committee, the surviving inmates of the Mauthausen camp staged a revolt. The Committee took over the camp, armed the prisoners, and organised defences against the SS hordes, who still wanted to liquidate all the inmates in the very last days of the war. On May 7th 1945, the area of the Mauthausen camp had finally been cleansed of the SS. The prisoners were free. The International Committee then issued the following announcement (here reproduced in part): Today, one of the worst and bloodiest camps opens its doors: Mauthausen… Only yesterday, the inmates, now liberated, were still threatened with death at the hands of the Nazi thugs. From their deepest hearts, they thank the victorious allied nations for their liberation, and they send their greetings to all peoples, with the jubilant cry of freedom regained… On the secure foundations of the international community we want to raise the most beautiful memorial we can imagine to the fallen soldiers of liberty: a world of free people! To the entire world, we say: Help us in this task! Long live international solidarity! Long live freedom!
PHOTO: The procession in Munich on November 9th: Hitler, Goering, von Ribbentrop and others walking behind the “Blood Flag” held by Grimminger. Heading the parade is the Jew-hating primary schoolteacher Julius Streicher, publisher of the vicious and trashy paper “Der Sturmer”. He was sentenced to death in Nuremberg.
Von Krosigk: “In a furious tirade, the Frankish schoolteacher appealed, not to the rationality of those who read his ‘Sturmer’, but to their lowest impulses. He was a sadist who took pleasure in torture.”
Judgement at Nuremberg: As Jewish Enemy No.1, Julius Streicher had poisoned the German spirit with the bacillus of anti-Semitism. He was responsible for the Nuremberg Laws, and he demanded and pushed through the extermination of the Jews.

Specialists believed that Hitler’s stomach-cramps were hysterical in origin, for he would have needed an iron constitution to meet the demands he placed upon himself between 1930 and 1943. Through the good offices of Marshall Antonescu of Rumania, he obtained a Jewish cook named Marlene Kunde. Antonescu himself had had a stomach ailment. Having delivered his country into the hands of the Nazis, he now presented his health-bringing cook to the Nazi commander-in-chief. Marlene knew how to make excellent vegetarian meals. She brought the Fuhrer sauerkraut and noodles, turnips, kidney beans and apple strudel, until it came to Himmler’s attention that Marlene Kunde was a Jew. “Let her be Aryanised!” roared Hitler. Eventually though, he had to choose between Marlene’s culinary skills and his own hatred of the Jews; Marlene departed, making way for Miss Manzialy, who liked to smoke cigarettes, which Hitler had strictly forbidden. She was in constant fear that her master would suddenly turn up in her kitchen.
Racial anti-Semitism sees its goal as the liberation of Aryan humanity from Jewish influences, for it regards the Aryan and the Jewish spirit as polar opposites: where the two meet, the Jewish spirit dissolves the Aryan. Therefore, the future of Germanic culture can only be saved by eradicating all Jewish influences, spiritual, intellectual, cultural or moral. Racial anti-Semitism is tireless in its prosecution of the struggle against the Jewish essence and its carriers: against Jewish writers of the present and the past, against Jewish artists and scholars, journalists and publishers. It has only one objective: the spiritual autarchy of the Germanic-Aryan race. In this struggle against the Jewish spirit, it was impossible to ignore religion. On the one hand, the anti-Semites could not avoid noticing that the Holy Book of the overwhelming majority of Germans is a national product of the Jewish spirit: the Bible. Both Testaments, in their entirety, are the work of Jewish authors: Jewish writers and historians, poets and philosophers, kings and lawmakers, prophets and saints. One part of this work contains the Jewish national history, another the Jewish national law; the Psalms constitute the finest flower of Jewish poetry, while other Biblical scriptures embody the highest pinnacle of Jewish ethics. This great document of the Jewish spirit has had an incomparably deeper influence on the spiritual structure of the Germans and other European peoples than all the other works by Jewish authors combined. And that influence continues undiminished today. In their history lessons, German schoolchildren are taught about the deeds of the great German Kaisers; then, next door, in their religion class, they hear the Biblical history of Israel, they hear tell of the great deeds of Moses and David, the heroism of Samson and the wisdom of Solomon. Every Sunday, many millions of German men, women and children gather in their churches to hear the words of Jewish prophets or Evangelists and the songs of Jewish poets. Through the Bible, countless fragments of ancient Jewish thought have become part of the German nationâ€™s common heritage. Meanwhile, the Ten Commandments proclaimed by Moses are recognised even by most non-Jewish Europeans as the highest laws of morality. European art in its entirety is fertilised by the Bible: in churches and chapels, on bridges and marketplaces, in Germany and throughout Europe, there are millions of statues and paintings that depict Jewish patriarchs and prophets, apostles, evangelists, saints and martyrs. A movement that aimed to eradicate all Jewish influences from German culture could not ignore the fact that the religion of contemporary Germans emerged from the Jewish religion and is rooted, first and foremost, in Jewish thought. (R. N. Coudenhore-Kalergi: Judenhass von heute [Jew-Hatred Today], 1936)
This question is by no means as strange as it looks! Let us see what kind of peculiar creature the Jew is. He has been abused, terrorised, persecuted and oppressed, kicked, slaughtered, burned and hanged, by every ruler and every nation, singly and in unison – and yet he lives! What is a Jew, that he was never capable of allowing himself to be seduced by any kind of wordly goods offered to him by his oppressors and persecutors, offered repeatedly, if only he would change his faith and abandon his own Jewish religion? The Jew is the sanctified being who brought from heaven the eternal flame and thereby illuminated the entire world. He is the religious source, the wellhead from which the other peoples have drawn their faith and their religion! The Jew is the pioneer of culture and liberty, the emblem of civic and religious tolerance, and the emblem of eternity. He, whom neither the butcheries nor the tortures of millennia could wipe out; he, whom neither fire nor sword nor Inquisition could remove from the earth; he, who was the first to announce the word of God; he, who for so long was the guardian of the prophecies, and who communicated them to the rest of humanity – such a nation cannot die. The Jew is eternal, as permanent as eternity itself!
What is a Jew?
Leo Tolstoy, 1904: “Love the stranger and the foreigner” demands Moses, “because you yourself were a stranger in the land of Egypt.” And that was said in such wild and distant times, when races and nations were trying to enslave each other! When it comes to religious tolerance, the Jewish faith is far removed from the spirit that hungers to convert others. On the contrary: The Talmud instructs rabbis that they must make it clear to those who come freely that their acceptance into the community will create difficulties for them, and that the just men and women of all nations have their part in the life to come. Not even the moralists of the present day can lay claim to such a lofty and ideal tolerance!

The study of European history in the last few centuries teaches us one recurrent lesson: nations that accepted the Jews and treated them kindly have flourished, while those that tortured and oppressed the Jews have called down a curse upon themselves.” (Olive Schreiner, 1906) “The history of the daughter-religions is a history of incessant murder attempts against their own mother; whenever such an attempt succeeds, the culprit perishes too, in the very act.” (M. Steinschneider, 1893)
“Serb, resist the abyss!”
“Parliamentarianism and democracy are inventions of the Jews. They served to drug the people, and then to tame them, domesticate them and exploit them.” “When I look at the representatives of these two worlds, the National Socialist German world and the Bolshevist-Jewish world – when I compare Adolf Hitler with the great beast Stalin – then I see in the former a unique and uniquely-gifted genius of the kind produced by humanity only once in several thousand years; and in the latter, a clumsy desert prince devoted to vodka.” (Dr. Ley)

Heydrich assigned Eichmann the task of forming the Central Office for the Solution of the Jewish Question. It was March 1944 before Hungary’s turn came up. Eichmann’s resources were insufficient; but in the Hungarian Ministry of the Interior, State Secretaries Endre and Baky deployed the apparatus of the Hungarian Gendarmerie. Eichmann’s aim was to perform a “lightning action”, and he did indeed carry out this plan. The only part he failed to realise was the deportation of the Jews of Budapest: The plan was revealed in time, and – following the intervention of foreign diplomats – Horthy forbade it. (From: “The Third Reich and the Jews”, by Poliakov and Wolf.) There were no concentration camps in Hungary. Certain preferred Jews were assigned to work groups that were deployed behind the front lines and in the country’s interior. The Post Office assigned them special “Jewish Postcards” featuring a diagonal yellow stripe.

The Postal Authority therefore points out that such behaviour is impermissible and will lead to the termination of the telephone connection.

[CAPTION TO CARTOON: It’s a sick old nag, that horse he sold you – The slyest swindler is the Jew.] On the Nature of Jewry Gradually, the struggle against Jewry has become the concern of all Europe. The day is not far off when the peoples of the world will recognise Judah as their true enemy. In itself, the struggle against Jewry is nothing new. For as long as Jewry has existed, the peoples have defended themselves against it, and they have done so out of a natural, spontaneous aversion towards the parasitic nature of the Jews. Enemies of the Reich The current war, too, is about primacy in the world. England will lose, Germany will win, and peace will reign once more between the former antagonists. But one conflict will not end: the war against the arch-enemy, Judah. His most dangerous weapon is concealment. Jewry is neither a people nor a race nor a religion. Behind these lofty human values [sic], rather, it conceals a low hunger for power and an unstillable desire to rule the world. Depending on the circumstances, Jewry knows which aspect of itself to put on display: the unity of a people or the breadth of a religion. Therefore, the struggle against Jewry requires clear, firmly-grounded, natural terms, and a brave willingness to face and uphold reality. The struggle against Jewry is fought not only when we encounter the Jew face-to-face, but whenever calculating intellect or short-sighted egotism forgets the eternal values of Volk and Fatherland and betrays these for the sake of petty and momentary advantages. Prof. D. Georg Bertram, Giessen (from “Welt-Dienst”, No. X/17, 1943).

[CAPTION TO CARTOON: Every last thing the Jew must take / Misery and poverty come in his wake.] Adolf Eichmann (to whom Hitler had given the task of executing the programme designed to deal with the Jewish Question) estimated that six million Jews were killed in pursuit of this policy, of whom four million perished in extermination camps! International Military Tribunal, Protocol, p. 16495, Nuremberg. It was not Goebbels (as generally believed), but the historian Heinrich von Treitzschke who coined the phrase: ‘The Jews are our misfortune!’ And he did so as early as 1880.
A letter from the Nazi publication ‘Der Stuermer’ to the manager of the Edel margarine company in Schuettorf, near Hanover: March 22nd, 1938. To the manager: Dear Sir, We note with regret that our letter of Feb. 22 still remains unanswered. Nonetheless: You too will remember how, just a few years ago, Jewish moneygrubbers and stock-market crooks, Jewish banks and Jewish firms, brought utter ruin upon the German economy; how almost 7 million German people, unemployed and impoverished, sought their salvation in Jewish-internationalist Muscovite Bolshevism, and how, in their hunger and desperation, they allowed themselves to be misused for terrorism and crime. The brilliant and unanticipated resurgence of the Germany economy only began when National Socialism assumed power and removed the Jews from their positions in government and industry. This is why World Jewry has declared Germany its deadly enemy. This is why the Jews are forming devilish plans and boycotting our factories, in the hope of wrestling our revitalised German economy to the ground. These Jewish machinations are reason enough to pursue our education campaign with even greater energy than hitherto. We are confident that we can reckon with your cooperation. As an exemplary German manager, you are no doubt conscious of your responsibilities. Therefore: Give your employees the opportunity to deepen their knowledge about the Jews. To this end, join the great community of the Stuermer campaign, which has sworn to exterminate the murderous Jewish race. Heil Hitler! Der Stuermer, Nuremberg.
‘In the Name of Civilization’, judified and niggerfied France has now unleashed its black beasts upon us for the third time. It will have to be the last time. It will be the last time!!
‘Translation into German forbidden!’ – notes the President of the American Peace League, the Jew Th. Nathan Kaufmann, in his hate-brochure. There he writes, among much else: ‘After complete sterilisation of the German people, there will be no further births and the population will cease to grow. With a normal mortality-rate of 20 percent annually, the life [sic] of Germany will shrink by 1,500,000 souls every year. In this way, something will be achieved within two generations which would otherwise have cost millions of human lives and centuries of effort, namely, the complete eradication of Germanness and its carriers.’ Roosevelt collaborated with the Jew Kaufmann on this murder-programme. The German people will take note of that! Word of the Week No. 44/1941 / Central Press of the NSDAP
Hermann Esser: The Jewish World Plague For the first time in the history of the West, a great people of the Nordic-Germanic sort has succeeded in frustrating the global plans of Jewry: we, the National Socialist German people under Adolf Hitler! The Fuhrer unmasked the Jews as the arch-enemies of all Volkish culture. Today, we are the first Germanic people to free ourselves from Jewry; but we are also the last Germanic bastion against World Jewry. This is why Jewry hates us with a passion! And this is why Jewry will use any means at its disposal to destroy us without trace!
The Jew is the opposite pole of the Nordic human being and the arch-enemy of every free people in the world.
In Commemoration of of the Beilis Trial in Kiev A special supplement to the Israelistisches Familienblatt (“Israelite Family Paper”), Hamburg Thursday, December 4th, 1913. No. 49 With this special supplement, we commemorate a grim occasion: the ritual-murder trial in Kiev, a sad and bloody satire that pierced our heart like a sharp knife. Should we grit our teeth in pain, or should we cry with laugher at the grotesque deceitfulness of these echt-Russian demon-hunters? Certainly, this echt-Russian chain of events was a gripping tragedy with an undertone of black humour. Once again, we saw Slander sitting at her spinning-wheel, weaving lies. Once again, unscrupulous demagoguery had busied itself making money by creating and exploiting stupidity amongst the populace. Once again, stupid prejudice had forced its way into a quiet, peaceful Jewish household and tried to cast an absurd and terrible suspicion on the head of an innocent man. Yet the tragedy of Wendel Beilis was not the tragedy of one man alone, but the tragedy of an entire people; for the suspicion cast upon a single individual was also a dreadful slander against Judaism itself and its holy teachings. Much was at stake, for slander has always managed to find ears that would hear it. And so it came about that we had to rejoice at the fact that an innocent man had not been found guilty; that the jury, simple men of the people, refused to have their judgment clouded by slanders — shameless and deliberate slanders concocted by people without conscience. But here is the saddest thing about this trial: Yet again, we had to fetch out our holy scriptures – the books of the Bible, the scrolls of the Talmud, and the works of Chassidic literature – in order to demonstrate the groundlessness of the accusations of ritual murder. Beilis has been declared innocent and set free, and we are pleased that justice has not been desecrated; but all Jews have suffered defamation as a result of these accusations. That we had to experience such a trial in the twentieth century: this has caused us pain we will not so quickly overcome. The ritual-murder trial in Kiev is and remains a sad memorial to the shame of the times we live in. [CAPTION: Beilis with his family.]
From the history of the Jews of Prague: On September 2nd 1744, the Prussian King Friedrich II appeared in person with his army; and the siege of Prague began. One hundred and twenty of the city’s Jews had already been called up to build protective walls. Soon, there was great mistrust against them in the general population, for the Jews did not want to work on their Sabbath. The authorities, however, did acknowledge their desire to observe their customary holy day; but, in return, 240 Jews (i.e. twice the usual number) were expected to work on Sundays. In addition, they had to provide a firewatch comprising 300 men. When the city commander refused to surrender, Friedrich II ordered the bombardment of Prague. Though the cannons caused considerable damage, the Jewish quarter happened to remain untouched; as a result, the population grew even more suspicious, and the Jews were soon hated as “friends of Prussia”. On September 17th, the commander capitulated: shortly thereafter, however, the Prussian king had to withdraw from Bohemia; and now, the population of Prague felt obliged to take revenge on the detested Jews, for the belief that they had served the Prussians as spies and lackeys had already developed into a kind of psychosis. The watchword was: “Get the Jews!” The mob moved towards the Jewish quarter, and the plundering began. Very soon, the Empress also got wind of the rumours that Prague’s Jewish population was “Prussia-friendly”- and she had never made any secret of her own aversion against the Jews. For Maria Theresa, the moment had come to begin eradicating the Jews of Bohemia. On December 18th 1744, she ordered the Jews to leave the city of Prague by January 31st of the following year; and shortly thereafter, they were ordered to vacate the country too. Numerous influential Bohemian aristocrats and civil servants pointed out that this would lead to the collapse of the entire economy; but the Empress remained intransigent. Even England, Holland and Spain intervened; and eventually, she was persuaded to withdraw her decree. In 1748, after four years of exile, the Jews were permitted to return to Prague. Their “eradication” was finally completed by SS Obergruppenfuhrer Reinhardt Heydrich.
Tuesday, June 9th, 1942 The Jewish Star in France Since June 7th, Jews in the Occupied Zone of France have been forbidden to appear in public without wearing a visible yellow star. […] The realisation comes late – as late as the statistics, which now suddenly appear. They inform the astonished French citizen that in the last century-and-a-half, the number of French people has increased by around 44 while the number of Jews living in France has grown more than 3,000 and that 57of all banks, 71of all music publishers and 82of the film industry in France are in Jewish hands. “The Jews were hidden”, complains the French press: “They wore no yellow stars.” … Now they do wear them. Now, thanks to a German initiative, the dividing line between French people and Jews has been drawn, externally. It is now up to France, to the French people, to the compatriots of Gobineau and Drumoni, to draw that line within themselves too. F.F.
Where a synagogue once stood: The Church of the Holy Grave, Deggendorf, Bavaria. In the year 1314, Emperor Ludwig of Bavaria expelled the Jews from his territories. Unluckily for them, they soon found ways to return. In Deggendorf in 1337, they were subjected to the most furious (and best-known) wave of persecution in Bavarian history. It soon spread through all of Bavaria and Austria. “With the help of a Christian woman, the Jews managed to acquire Hosts [the consecrated wafers used in Catholic services]. These they pierced with a cobbler’s awl until the blood sprang out. Then they scratched the Hosts with sharp thorns, whereupon a beautiful boy-child appeared to them. Then they threw the Hosts into an oven, where they merely became more beautiful still than freshly-baked wafers. At last they laid the Hosts upon an anvil and hit them with sledgehammers; but this too was of no use. Then they threw the Hosts into a well, upon which the voice of the Mother of God was heard, weeping and wailing bitterly!”On the day after Michaelmas, the citizens of the town, together with the knight Hartman von Degenberg, fell upon the Jews, who lost their lives under the most appalling tortures. That a church was built to immortalise this act of holiness; that the Popes and Bishops showered indulgences upon the perpetrators; that, from then on, pilgrims streamed into Deggendorf from every corner of the pious Fatherland: all this goes without saying. A painting and a comedy (still performed in 1801, in Regen) depict the cruel murder of the Jews in the most gruesome colours.” From: History of the Jews in Bavaria, by Johan Christ, Freiherr von Aretin, 1803)
We ask: Aren’t those people also guilty who created and supported the racial laws? Aren’t those judges and civil servants equally guilty who delivered “justice” according to these laws, and who willingly assisted in the persecution of those who opposed Hitler? The intellectual progenitors of the Nazi atrocities are as guilty as Eichmann and his accomplices; yet today they sit in high public positions. What contempt this shows for the victims! Whoever tolerates and covers for them damages democracy and the reputation of our people! Eichmann is on trial; but in the Federal Republic of Germany, those who fought against the murderous Nazi regime, those who fell victim to its terror, are being persecuted once again. The Federal Minister of the Interior, Dr. Schroder, slanders their organisations – the Associations of Victims of the Nazi Regime (VVN) — and demands their prohibition. Yet Dr. Schroder was once an SA-AnwÃ¤rter! Such behaviour speaks for itself! Look at the mistrustful attitude towards those Germans who fought against Hitler and the Eichmanns while in exile. Compare the political incitement against people and organisations that stand up for peace and understanding. It is all part of the same pattern. The prospects are bad for democracy in the Federal Republic of Germany, as long as such things are possible. The prospects are bad for democracy as long as a Dr. Hans Globke can be Secretary of State, and the retired Nazi General Foertsch â€“ who was handed over to the Federal Government as a war criminal without amnesty — can become Inspector General of the German Army. The prospects are bad for democracy as long as former leading Nazis can hold key positions in public life. There must be an end to this! There must be an end to the toleration of those guilty of Nazi crimes; the infiltration of public life by former representatives of the “Third Reich”; the defamation of resistance fighters and victims of the National Socialist regime. The good name of our people demands this. We owe it to the millions of victims of Nazi terror and of the war. Eichmann is on trial. It is high time that the “Eichmanns” in the Federal Republic were made to answer for themselves. Only in this way can we come to terms with our dark past. Only thus can we open the path to a life in peace and freedom. Board of the Associations of Victims of the Nazi Regime (VNN) —————————————————————————– Responsible for the content: A.

Terminus: Auschwitz. Eichmann’s victims make their final journey.
A Monster on Trial The mass-murderer Eichmann is now on trial. He has millions of innocent victims on his conscience: men and women, children and old people. How could this bloodbath take place? Who let the monster Eichmann loose on humanity? Who prepared the ground for the “Final Solution of the Jewish Question”? Eichmann could never have carried out his bloody task without many helpers in the ministries, in the Reich Security Head Office (Reichssicherheitshauptamt), and in the offices of the so-called “Defence Industry Leaders” (WehrwirtschaftsfÃ¼hrer – a title given to those German industrialists who were regarded as particularly important to the war effort.) Even now, some of them are still living among us as “honourable men.”
BUCHENWALD CONCENTRATION CAMP In the fascist concentration camps, the most horrifying places of mass extermination, more than 11 million people, citizens of almost every European nation, were gassed, beaten and tortured to death by the Nazis. Auschwitz, Dachau, Maidanek, Mauthausen, Buchenwald, RavensbrÃ¼ck, Sachsenhausen: these are just a few of the many “KZs” constructed by the Nazis in Germany and in the European countries they occupied. Until the end of time, these camps will constitute a cry against the inhumanity of a regime that raged with unimaginable cruelty against its own population, and to the other peoples brought war, terror, fire, destruction and bloody oppression. Buchenwald was built in 1937, in the heart of Germany, on the hill of Ettersberg near Weimar. 250.000 people from 23 nations passed through this camp and its 60 external annexes. Fifty-six thousand – more than one-fifth – were slaughtered by the Nazis or died during their imprisonment. In a specially-constructed device that delivered a bullet to the neck, 7,200 soldiers and officers of the Soviet army were shot dead. They had been told they were undergoing a medical examination. Under the dreadful conditions pertaining in the camp, it was clear that only united action could provide any prospect of surviving the terror. An international camp-leadership was created from among the most reliable anti-Fascists. What mattered in this context was not party-membership, religion or world-view, but simply the readiness to fight against the terror of the system. Thanks to this international solidarity, the lives of many conscious anti-Fascists were saved. In the summer of 1942, the first steps were taken to initiate an illegal military organisation of the prisoners. The victorious advance of the Soviet armies also quickened the hearts of the anti-Fascist prisoners, filling them with new confidence. Thanks to the illustrious deeds of the Soviet forces, the day of liberation drew nearer; and shortly before that day, the prisoners’ military organisation succeeded in protecting the camp against the crime planned by the SS. Twenty-one thousand prisoners took the Buchenwald Oath and entered upon the road to freedom. To honour all those who perished in Buchenwald, a special set of stamps was issued, featuring the portraits of some murdered anti-Fascists. In addition, the Board of Trustees for the Erection of National Memorials approved the manufacture of a number of large postcards. These postcards and special-issue stamps depict the following people: Ernst ThÃ¤lmann, the great leader of the German working class; Rudolf Breitscheid, Social Democrat representative in the Reichstag; the Protestant vicar Paul Schneider; Albert Kuntz, Organisational Secretary of the German Communist party’s Berlin-Brandenburg section; Walter Staecker, chairman of the Communist section in the Reichstag; Rudolf Renner, member of the Parliament of Lower Saxony; Dr. Kurt Adams, Social Democrat member of Hamburg’s State Parliament; and the young Communist and popular block-elder in the Jewish Block at Buchenwald, Rudi Arndt.

7-Pfennig stamp: Kathe Kollwitz (1867 – 1945), who served art. Daughter of Karl Schmidt LL.D (Dr. jur.), she married the physician Dr. Kollwitz. In her cycle “The War”, we hear the cry of tormented humanity; she herself had had to sacrifice her youngest son on the battlefield. During the period of the German Empire, her pictures were banned; in the Weimar Republic they were held in high esteem; under the Third Reich she was vilified and excluded from the Academy of Arts. Today, Kathe Kollwitz enjoys the recognition she deserves. 10-Pfennig: The prelate Lorenz Werthmann (1858 – 1921),who cared for the workers. 20-Pfennig: Johan Friedrich Oberlin (1740 – 1826).He studied medicine and natural sciences in his native town of Strassburg. In 1770, he founded the world’s first “kindergarten” and developed a planned school-system based on progressive ideas. “Papa Oberlin”, as he was known, was the very model of a genuine teacher of the people. 40-Pfennig: Bertha Pappenheim (1859 – 1936):a striking figure in Jewish history. Born in Vienna to wealthy parents, she was gifted in literature and the arts. Yet she was not content to be a “well-educated young lady”; instead, while still young and full of idealism, she chose to serve her fellow human-beings, who were suffering and dying. At the age of 36, she took on the management of the Jewish Orphanage in Frankfurt. She founded a kindergarten and established the Jewish Women’s Association. She demonstrated her versatility in running the Girls’ Reformatory in Neu Isenburg, which she had also founded. She showed her toughness in combating the criminal trade in young girls. Eventually, however, the floodwaters of racial hatred devastated her life’s work, which had brought so many blessings. The last years in the life of this courageous woman were darkened by painful presentiments of the horrors to come.
Albert Ballin, Director of the Hamburg-America Line (HAPAG) and Alderman of the last German Kaiser: born in Hamburg, buried in Ohlsdorf. Ballin took his own life when his friend Wilhelm II fled to Holland. The Kaiser had wanted to ennoble him if only he would convert to Christianity. Politely, Albert Ballin refused.
Mrs. Irene Harand This courageous and exceptional Viennese Christian tried to combat anti-Semitism by means of her “Irene Harand Movement”. When the Nazis invaded Austria, she only just managed to escape with her life. Irene Harand fled to the USA.
On February 17th 1856, Heine died in his ‘mattress crypt’ in Paris. In 1840, Heine wrote his “Damascus letters”. A Capuchin monk had been murdered in Damascus, and the Jews were blamed, with the notorious “blood libel” that they needed the blood for their Passover celebrations. The French consul Thiers actually promoted this lie. Though Heine had been baptised into the Christian faith, he took up the cause of his fellow Jews, and wrote: Heine wrote: M. Thiers’ response was a masterpiece of perfidiousness. By being evasive, by keeping silent about what he knew, by appearing to be timidly reticent, he managed to cast suspicion on his opponents in a quite exquisite manner. Anyone who heard him speak might end by actually believing that the Jews’ favourite dish was Capuchin flesh! But no, o great historian and very small theologian! In the East as in the West, the Old Testament permits its adherents no such filthy feeding. One of the great idiosyncrasies of the Jews is their horror at the idea of consuming blood. It is expressed in the very first dogmas concerning purity and impurity. No! The descendants of Israel, of the pure, chosen, priestly people: they eat no pork, and no old Franciscans either. And they would no more drink blood than they would drink their own urine, like Saint Elisabeth [de Hongrie], great-aunt of Count Montalembert.
“To present the Talmud as the priceless, peerless, sublime work that comprises all the treasures of science, scholarship and morality, a work beyond all criticism – this is not merely prettification and window-dressing, but actual deception. To defend ethically dubious sections is to indulge in whitewashing; to try to impose a deeper significance upon silly tales is to submit to a Sisyphean task. But those who take this gigantic work and cherrypick questionable lines from it; who remove harmless words from their context and apply a false interpretation, thereby producing caricatures or grotesqueries, making these Talmud verses the object of scorn and contempt: such people are pitiful wretches and dishonourable frauds.”(Emmanuel Goldschmitt)
In the Book of Books it is written (Matthew 26: 52): “All they that take the sword shall perish with the sword!” The best books were burnt by the Nazis!
[Translator’s note: The postcards are postmarked: “8. 11. 38. – German Book Week”] The Jews hold back raw materials, so that firms go bankrupt and workers are left without bread; they agitate in favour of Bolshevism, so as to escape in the chaos of financial divestment and seize everything they have not already bought up. Then we become minions of the Jews, and can only work for starvation wages under their whip. “And Joshua discomfited Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword. And the LORD said unto Moses, Write this for a memorial in a book, and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua: for I will utterly put out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven.” (Exodus 17: 13-14)
At the gateway to Dante’s Inferno stood the words: “Through me the way into the suffering city, through me the way to the eternal pain, through me the way that runs among the lost.[…] Abandon every hope, who enter here.” At the gateway to Dachau: “Arbeit macht frei!” (“Work will set you free!”) At the gateway to Buchenwald: “Recht oder Unrecht – mein Vaterland!” (“Right or wrong – my country!”)
Opposite the parade ground stood a long, low building that held the storerooms, kitchen, bathroom, and prisoners’ wardrobes. On the roof were painted the already-faded words: “There is one road to freedom. Its milestones are: obedience, industry, sobriety, cleanliness and orderliness.”
From time to time, the SS camp physician at Dachau carried out a so-called “selection process”. Anyone who was no longer steady on his legs counted as a “Musulman” and was singled out for transportation to Mauthausen or Auschwitz. Each of these groups comprised thousands of people. Once they arrived at their destination, they died very quickly.
The entrance to the camp was through the gateway, located in a low building mainly one storey tall, with a tower in the middle and a platform providing a complete overview of the entire camp. Its balustrade held a large clock -and floodlights that illuminated the barbed-wire area, morning, noon and night.
Dachau: anyone who believes in justice will shudder on hearing its name. Dachau: a name that freezes the blood of any honest man or woman. Dachau: a word that embodies all the misery of oppressed humanity.
Not far from Munich, around 18 kilometres to the north, is the notorious Dachau concentration camp: a small place; a fragment of land, soaked in the blood of innocent human beings. Its name is now notorious, and imprinted forever in the memory of the world.
“My dear husband! Since January 14th, I have heard nothing from you!”
Who amongst the former prisoners of Dachau can ever forget the terrible gravel-pits, where people had to stand barefoot in icy water, labouring until they dropped? And most of them dropped dead, if they hadn’t already been beaten to death, to say nothing of those who were buried alive.(Udo Dietmar)
Who amongst the former prisoners of Dachau can ever forget the torments he had to suffer, the sadism he was subjected to? The tortures, the whips, the trained dogs, the executions, the rifle-butts, the rubber truncheons, the casual shooting of human beings…
“No words, no words are capable of expressing the unspeakable suffering of these people.”
Rings were wrenched from the women’s fingers so that their knuckles broke. Their earrings were torn away with their earlobes!
Germany could make use of this hair: it was raw material. The monsters knew how to make use of everything – leather, paper, cloth — everything and anything that a human being could make use of. They could find a use for all of it. The only thing they despised and trod into the mud was the most precious good of all: human life itself.”(Wassily Grossmann)
“Women had their hair cut off; old women had their wigs taken away from them. This had a strange psychological effect: according to the barbers, this cutting of their hair at the moment of death did more than anything else to convince the women that they were in fact being led to a bathhouse.
The ruler here was Generalgouverneur Dr. Jur. Hans Frank, President of the Academy of German Law!
Day and night, for months on end, deadly fires and smoke rose to the sky. In dozens of surrounding villages and settlements, the inhabitants must have seen all this, for it could not be hidden. Impossible, too, to forget the terrible cries of the women and children, which again went on for months on end! How could anyone eradicate such sights and sounds from their memory? Those cries will forever ring in the ears of the local farming people, who, for months on end, carried the ashes of human beings from the death-camps to the roads of the surrounding area!
This card was returned to the sender because picture postcards of any kind were forbidden. What were the Nazis expecting to achieve by this? The card reveals nothing about the SS’s giant human slaughterhouses, the worst of which were located in the territories of the Generalgouvernement: in Lublin, Sobibur, Treblinka, Maidanek, Belschiza and Oswienzim. The Germans could keep nothing secret; they could not hide the evidence that millions of people were being murdered; they could not enforce silence on thousands of witnesses who had seen people from all over Europe transported to veritable death-factories. It was impossible!
“The Black Wall” They appeared in the courtyard: Camp Commander Fritzsch, SS Doctor Entress, SS Platoon Commander Stark, Work Services Commander Hessler, and Rapportfuhrer Palitsch. The last of these held a rifle in his right hand. A moment later, we saw Branek: he was bringing a naked elderly man whose hands were bound behind his back with barbed wire. They stopped in front of the black wall. Palitsch pushed the old man a little further forwards and placed him with his face to the wall. At the same instant, Palitsch raised his rifle to the old man’s neck and pulled the trigger. A shot rang out, the old man took half a step forwards and fell onto the sandy ground. Blood was spurting from the back of his head. Entress appeared, leant over the prone figure, raised its head to check the response of the pupils, and cried: “All right!” The corpse was carried away, and the blood-soaked earth strewn with sand. All this time, the SS men were smoking. Palitsch extinguished his cigarette-end with the heel of his boot, and roared: “Next!” Bronek appeared with a little blonde girl aged about eight or nine, and naked. Her big, pale-blue eyes observed her surroundings with a mixture of curiosity and fear. Her hands, like those of all the others, were bound with wire. With a trembling voice, she asked: “What’s happening now? Where’s Mama? Who are those gentlemen?” The SS men say nothing and stare at the ground. Fritzsch is playing with his fingers, nervously. Entress is cleaning his spectacles, slowly. Palitsch smiles at the girl and leads her to the black wall. With his right hand he holds her arm, with his left he raises the rifle: a shot rings out. The small body lies on the yellowish ground. The child’s hair harmonises weirdly with the sandy soil. And the blood… Palitsch is taking great interest in his rifle. He removes the lock and fiddles round with the hull. His movements are smooth and balanced, he is perfectly calm. “William Tell!” He demonstrates hardness and control of oneâ€™s feelings! He looks at his comrades disparagingly, no doubt thinking: “Weaklings!” He is making a show of indifference, although today is quite an occasion: he has shot his thousandth human being. Quite an “achievement” in just one year! Now he glances at the other SS men and says: “Today you’re all invited to a party – a jubilee. The little person I’ve just shot for the Fuehrer in Auschwitz is No. 1,000. You’ll all come, won’t you?” There is a clear tinge of irony to his voice. SS Hauptsturmfuhrer Fritsch, the Camp Commander at Auschwitz, raises himself to his full height: “Platoon Commander, I’ll ask not to discuss your private affairs while on duty!” Palitsch controls himself: “Jawohl, Herr Hauptsturmfuhrer!” He clicks his heels loudly together and gives a signal to Gerlach. The prisoners selected by Hans for the task emerge hastily from the block once more; they are carrying one of the long wooden boxes used for transporting corpses, and in this they lay the dead body. By now, Wacek is smoothing the sandy earth. Palitsch calls out: “Next!” From “Caps off!” by Zenon Rozanski: (“A Report from the Punishment Brigade at the Auschwitz Concentration Camp.”)
In some of these “affiliates” or sub-branches, living-conditions were even worse than in Mauthausen proper. Over the years, an estimated 335,000 persons of both sexes were imprisoned in these camps. According to the surviving documentation, 122,767 political prisoners were cruelly murdered in Mauthausen alone.
The following subsidiary camps were attached to the main camp at Mauthausen: Gusen (10-20,000 inmates) Loiblpass South and East (5,000) Melk (4-6,000 inmates) Schlier-Vocklabruck (1,500) Ebensee (8-14,000) Peggau (600) Linz I, II, III (7,000) Vienna-Jedlesee (400) Steyr (4,000) Vienna-HinterbrÃ¼hl (800) Saurerwerke Vienna (1,500) St. Agyd (400) Junkerswerke Vienna (2,000) Dippoldsau (600) Vienna Neustadt (1,000) St. Lambrecht (20) Vienna Neudorf (3,000) …and more. Grossraming (800) Klagenfurt (90)
A photo of the camp, taken by the SS in January 1942 (temperature: minus 10Â° Celsius). It shows 30 survivors, on their arrival in Mauthausen, out of a group of 2,000 Soviet prisoners of war transported there. The camp had been built in the summer of 1938 after the occupation of Austria.
The auxiliary camp at Melk was first opened in April 1944 and its underground factories were only completed at around the time of liberation. Every month, around one thousand inmates died while working on it.
Classified as ‘Level III’, Mauthausen was an extermination camp; the authorities deemed it ‘undesirable’ that anyone incarcerated there be allowed to return home. The camp lay stretched out on the mountain like a grim beast lying in wait for prey. Its watchtowers and smokestacks pierced the sky like poisonous spines. At night, blinding floodlights and metres-high flames from the crematorium’s chimneys could be seen for miles around in the Danube valley, and the sickly smell of burning human flesh permeated the entire surrounding area. The camp’s granite walls carried miles of deadly electrified barbed-wire: in countless rooms, terrible acts of sadistic inhuman cruelty were carried out.
The workshops were located in a tunnel, dug by inmates of the auxiliary camp at Ebensee. Twelve factory buildings were erected here, each of them 428 metres in length and connected by a corridor. In the course of any one year, thousands of political prisoners died from the effects of forced labour.
Postcard from the Dachau camp with an extract from the camp regulations:
The Murdered Children / by Orli Reichert “Three things have been left to us from Paradise: stars, flowers and children!” Can there be many people who would not give their wholehearted assent to these words of Dante’s? Is there anything that can touch us more than the pure, helpless, trusting eyes of a child? Hardly! How far astray must a human being go, how sad is the state of his soul, of his human feeling, if he is capable of murdering small innocent children! When we hear that a man or a woman has been murdered, a grown human being, repulsion and a diffuse horror awaken in our hearts. But when we hear that the victim is a child, then these two feelings are strengthened even more. They are joined by outrage, and we ask ourselves how such a thing can be possible. Before us, we see the children’s small helpless hands, we hear their high-pitched laughter, and we see their tears: big helpless tears from blue, brown and black eye-stars. Children’s eyes are stars, and woe to him who dims their glow or puts it out forever. He is damned. He has fallen deeper than any human being should ever fall. â€“ I would send all the people in Germany five years into the past, if I could – but especially the women and mothers. I would take them to Auschwitz, in the year 1943. Then they could see, in a single day, that bonfires have been set up; in a long line before them stand women with children in their arms. And these children are torn from their arms, and thrown living into the cracking fire. – And they could see a long, long line of children, children between the ages of six and 14. These children are standing, raising their hands in supplication to men and women in uniform. They are begging for their lives, for their poor helpless lives that have only just begun and are now about to end, so soon and in such a way. But their pleas remain unheard, and their last, stammered words echo in the gas chambers of the crematorium. – And on this day they could see an endless line of prams. They roll out of the barracks beside the crematorium, along the road that leads to Auschwitz Station. They are empty, these prams. When they came here, they were full of joy-bringing life. Little legs were kicking, blue and brown eyes looking round in wonder, tiny thumbs stuck in tiny mouths. Mothers had watched over them, worried and careful. Now these prams are empty, this endless line of prams from the most various countries. Was there ever such a parade of prams? Gone silent is the babbling of those babies; snuffed out, the horrified screams of their mothers. Men in uniform are pushing the empty prams to the railway station. Murderers’ hands! The prams are loaded onto the train and transported to the “Reich”. These three images should be shown to every human being in Germany. Just those three; they would have to be enough. If the screams of those thousands of murdered children have really gone silent, if there was and is no-one in Germany who is willing to hear them, if no-one recognises what has happened and feels profound shame for it, then we are damned, we are lost, and we shall sink ever deeper! ******************************************* AT BOTTOM OF PAGE: At the cabaret: In 1946, at a show in Reichenhall, Bavaria, the survivors were given a clear message when the envious “philanthropic” Nazis in the audience greeted the following simple words with thunderous applause: “The Jews are eating chocolate. Only six million of them gassed – Shame about that!”
From Hitler’s Speeches; To a Hitler Youth rally in 1935: “In stating our will to peace, we must name only one precondition: that we will do no harm to others and allow no others to inflict any harm on us!” Top Secret Reich Document: Experiments with Low Pressure … This was an experiment over an extended period of time, without oxygen, at an elevation of 12 kilometres. The subject was a 37-year-old Jewess in good general condition. Breathing continued for 30 minutes. After 4 minutes, the Experimental Subject (ES) begin to sweat and to waggle her head. After 5 minutes, cramps appeared; between the 6th and the 10th minute, breathing accelerated, ES unconscious. Between the 11th and the 30th minute, breathing slowed to 3 breaths per minute and then stopped completely. In the meantime, very severe cyanosis appeared, along with foam at the mouth. Autopsy report: When the breast cage was opened, the pericardial sac was seen to be filled to bursting (cardiac tamponade). When the pericardial sac was opened, it ejected 80 cc of clear yellowish fluid in a jet. — 1946: ‘We knew nothing!’
LEFT COLUMN, SECOND DOWN: Who is responsible for the war? Vernon Bartlett, one of the leading British political writers, recently let slip the following admission: “Amongst the civilized nations, England is the only one that resorted to the use of arms without having been attacked.” This is an open admission from the British side that England is the aggressor, and that they chose quite groundlessly to go to war with Germany. Yet it is only a partial admission of Britain’s entire guilt. Under the orders of Warmonger-in-Chief Roosevelt, the British government incited Poland against the Reich, compelled France to join in the British declaration of war, drove Norway, Holland, Belgium, Greece and Yugoslavia into war, and finally allied itself with the all-destroying force of Bolshevism. In doing so, Churchill has taken upon himself a monstrous burden of guilt. History will bear witness to the fact that Roosevelt, Churchill and Stalin are responsible for this war. But behind them stands the Jew. International Jewry wanted this war as a means of satisfying its striving for world-domination; Roosevelt, Churchill and Stalin are its willing tools. For this war, and for all the suffering and privation it has brought upon the world’s peoples, Jewry bears the guilt.

The Pro-War Agitator – in which we demonstrate that the Jew is the biggest warmonger and the greatest agitator in favour of war. He wishes to annihilate National Socialist Germany. And beyond Germany, he wants to set Europe and the world on fire by means of Bolshevism. Thus, on January 16th 1919, the Jewish newspaper “Jewish World” made the following admission: “International Jewry forced Europe to wage this war, not merely in order to pile up large sums of money, but so as to use that money to finance a new Jewish World War.” Today, that “new Jewish World War” threatens to become a second great struggle amongst the peoples.

Available in every Post Office, or directly from the publishers. The Pro-War Agitator Though only few know him, he has been unleashing wars for millennia. Who, even in the Middle Ages, drove peoples against one another and caused bloody wars? Who, since the dawn of time, has been responsible for mass murders, mass bloodbaths and mass butcheries? Who profited most from the Napoleonic Wars? Who agitated and drove the peoples into war in 1914? Who financed that World War, betrayed the peoples and emerged as the sole winner? Who would like to unleash a second World War against Germany? Drawing on historical data, confessions, admissions, and gruesome and chilling documents, Der Stuermer presents a special edition on the occasion of the NSDAP’s national party congress, the Reichsparteitag: [continues on next page]

Poor non-Aryan cows! In 1935, the “Wolfratshauser Tageblatt”, an organ of the NSDAP, published the following official proclamation by the local authority of Konigsdorf: 1. Any cows or other cattle bought directly or indirectly by Jews are excluded from access to the parish bull. 2. Any cows or other cattle kept in stalls that also accommodate livestock owned by Jews, will be kept under observation for a period of one year. During this period, they are excluded from access to the parish bull. The Mayor of the Township of Konigsdorf Signed: Ernst Schreyer, Mayor The management committee of the three bull-keeping cooperatives then passed the same regulation for their own areas of administration! One doesn’t know whether to laugh or cry!
Nowadays, money is brought into circulation by the State; and whenever the State itself needs money, it is forced to borrow it from Jewish banks while paying heavy interest. Were the State itself in charge of the money supply, then the interest on any money it lent out would accrue once again to the State itself. Today, the money is earned by the Jew, and the good German taxpayer is close to collapsing under the weight of this grim economic mismanagement. Therefore: Fight to the death against all unproductive capital – against Jewish lending-and-usury capital! Everyone has a duty to work, to help save our Volk from its current shocking misery. For this reason, we must also demand that the Jewish Volk take an active part, by performing manual labour in the coal mines, in the workshops, in the factories, as farm labourers, etc., — and that it cease to suck and feed and grow fat on the sick body of our Volk. Against their better judgement, some continue to deny their own Germanness and to work consciously against their own Volk for the sake of Jewish Mammon. Let them be unmasked! Already, certain workers’ leaders have learned anew and become convinced of the erroneousness of their party’s principles. There are honest-minded workers’ leaders who really have the best interests of the workers at heart. For the sake of the entire propertyless class, therefore, these leaders should free themselves from all alien and destructive influences and dedicate themselves only to the most ideal objectives of our German Volk. Despite all the invective against anti-Semites, etc., the awakening of the Volk proceeds apace. Comrades in race: it is essential that you do not listen only to the one-sided chatter of the press. Instead, you should take a look at other newspapers, which think differently and which write in a true, volkish, German spirit. There you will find a few grains of truth that will help you to understand the causes of our misery. â€“ Do not forget: it was the press â€“ of which 90is now in Jewish hands or under Jewish influence â€“ that mesmerised us, before, during and most especially after the war. Today, it is only with the greatest mistrust that one can encounter any newspaper written or managed by Jews. Do not let yourselves be mesmerised any longer by slogans about beating the Jews to death, etc.; for we fight the Jew, not as a human being, but as a race. And our struggle will continue until he abandons his ruinous and dissolving influence on our Volk and grasps that he is an alien — a mere guest in our house, and not its master. Therefore, my German comrades in race: I appeal to you urgently to work together in healing and restoring the mortally-sick body of our Volk. Since it is now clear that Juda bears the main guilt for the dissolution of our people, we must demand, with one voice, a judicial solution to the Jewish question. Without reducing the rights due to the Jews as a minority, we must all fight against their fatal dominance in our Volk. Examine the Jewish question closely and in depth, and then form your own opinion. In future elections, give your vote only to those parties that fight ruthlessly against everything rotten and rottenness-inducing in the body of our state. Do not let yourselves be mesmerised by their sloganeering politics. Vote only for German men who place the issue above the individual, and who will not work against their own convictions for the sake of Jewish money. There are still enough honest Germans who are capable of representing your interests strongly. So enough of Jews who claim to speak for you. If our Volk is to be saved from utter downfall, it will only be through the firm solidarity of all honest Germans – and that means, first and foremost, the German working class. The international Jewish dream of world domination is fraudulent, and can only be realised with the help of misguided masses of working people. Therefore: break its chains and stand up for the unity of the German Volk. – Only through Germans can Germans be helped. G. Seifert, joiner, Hanover.
