Today, the German people are celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Berlin Wall coming down. You can read about it on the news at

November 9th is a very important date in German history because it was on that day that three very significant events happened.

It was on Nov. 9, 1918, that the Social Democrats took over Germany, forced the Kaiser to abdicate and then declared The Republic of Germany.  Two days later, the Great War (WWI) ended.  But it’s not over til it’s over.  The peace terms of World War I led to World War II.

On that November day in 1918, Hitler was lying in a hospital bed, after being blinded by gas that had been used, by both sides, in battle.  The take-over by the Social Democrats, on Nov. 9, 1918, led to Hitler and the Nazis taking over Germany, which then resulted in the Holocaust.

It was on November 9, 1938 that the event known as Kristallnacht (Night of Broken Glass) took place.  This was a one-day event in which Jewish stores and synagogues were destroyed throughout Germany.

Today, few people remember the first two events, but the fall of the Berlin wall, which took place, 25 years ago, on November 9th, is being celebrated today.


  1. I was moved to tears by the extraordinary story of Martin Greenfield; we all know how jews are quick to pardon their tormentors, and German girls eager to bed death camp inmates.

    By the way, Mr. Martin Greenfield forgot to mention this unique episode in the long article dedicated to his life two years ago.

    In newly liberated Buchenwald, he remembered cheering Eisenhower next to a boy who happened to be … Elie Wiesel. But wasn’t poor Elie in the hospital at the time?

    Martin Greenfield nor Elie Wiesel would lie, wouldn’t they?

      • I read about Martin Greenfield in this article:

        Buchenwald was not a camp for Jews. Near the end of the war, Jews were brought to Buchenwald and imprisoned in the “Little Camp,” which was a quarantine camp. Before that, Jews from Auschwitz were brought to the main camp and then sent to one of the sub-camps of Buchenwald, such as Ohrdruf, which was the only camp that Eisenhower ever visited. The mayor of Ohrdruf and his wife also killed themselves. Martin Greenfield has written a new book, which he is promoting.

        Elie Wiesel wrote in his book Night that he and some other boys went, from the Buchenwald camp, to Weimar where they consorted with German girls. This is believed to be a lie since the German girls would not have been glad to see prisoners who had been liberated. The prisoners went to Weimar to kill German civilians.

    • General Eisenhower was never at Buchenwald. His only visit to a concentration camp was his visit to Ohrdruf, a sub-camp of Buchenwald. I wrote about it on this blog post:

      There is no proof that Elie Wiesel was ever at Buchenwald, nor at Auschwitz. There are many mistakes in Elie’s story, which indicate that he was never in a concentration camp.

      • Although I take Mr. Greenfield”s tales with a truckload of salt, his presence in Auschwitz and Buchenwald appears to be unquestionable; this story displays no less than 7 period documents. (scroll down)

        Did Mr. Wiesel ever submit similar documentation?

        • You can read about the documentation on Elie Wiesel on this blog post:

          This is on a blog that is totally about the question of whether or not Elie Wiesel was ever at Buchenwald or at Auschwitz. There is no evidence that he was ever at either of these camps.

          I don’t think that anyone is questioning whether or not Greenfield was at Auschwitz or Buchenwald. People, including me, are questioning his story of eating rabbit food, being whipped and deciding to kill the wife of the Commandant. I think that he is including these details in order to sell a book. No one wants to read about a Holocaust survivor who was treated well in two different camps.

        • Another “death camp” survivor.

      Yeah, a deep bloody hatred through “only” 7 generations and then everything is forgiven. Real saints indeed… 😉

      Thanks for sharing that laughable story with us. Obviously a fraud but pleasant to read as a joke anyway.

      I was amused to tears when thinking about the numerous gullible Gentiles believing in such ridiculous stories. Eastern Jews have always been well-known natural born storytellers but their stories are always full of lies easily debunked by anyone even with a half brain.

      What we know is how Jews project their evil deeds onto others; like the 66 million who perished in the Soviet gulags under Jewish supervision.

      (See Solzhenitsyn, “200 Years Together,” for both the number and the Jewish supervision.)

  2. And on November 9, 1923, Hitler’s Munich Beer Hall Putsch took place, what made Hitler go to jail where he wrote Mein Kampf. In the evening of November 9, 1938, Hitler, other Nazi leaders and Gauleiters were commemorating the Fallen heroes of the failed Munich Putsch (15th anniversary) when they heard of the first news about the starting Kristallnacht.

    Funny fact. In Europe, November 9 is written 9/11… 😉
