German vocabulary word of the day: “Scheißhaufen”

Filed under: Germany, Language, Uncategorized — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 7:00 am

The video, which you can see by clicking on the link above, is an example of “Scheißhaufen” according to an outstanding native German speaker.

You can see the German word “Scheißhaufen” used in a sentence in a comment made by Herbert Stolpmann, which you can read in the quote below.

Begin quote from Stolpmann

Well hermie -FG

That strong and vibrant voice of mein Führer is now silent [actually it sounds like a dog barking] and the world he set on fire will never be the same, at least not for me.
Just keep cranking out some more of these Scheißhaufen, some people like you seem to like it!

End quote from Stolpmann

In his youth, Stolpmann fought for Germany all the way to the bitter end, until he was ordered to surrender.  Then he survived as a member of the Disarmed Enemy Forces.  His first-hand recollections of those days are very valuable, and I have the utmost respect for his stories.  However, I fear that the word Scheißhaufen might lose something in translation.

Stolpmann is an outstanding blogger in his own right.

You can read his 2017 blog posts, about Dachau, by clicking here:




  1. The miscegenation agenda of the bi-polar New World Order was laid out in the 1920’s by the well connected, philo-Semetic half-Japanese Austro-Hungarian aristocratic “Father of the EU” Count Richard Coudenhove-Kalergi. In France patriotic miscegenation is called “métissage.” Listen to the ex-president of France tell his nation that crossbreeding is the challenge of the 21st century. Sarkozy is a Döhmeh (Turkish crypto-Jew). His wives, girlfriends and children are all Jews. The promotion of diversity and multiculturalism is essentially Jewish. Those who oppose it are for the most part the remnant of the century in which nations waged war against “Judeo-Masonic Bolshevism” and lost.

      Something I personally dislike by any commentator to bring up the subject of those mean old Nazis, to me, and I am sure it is offensive to say the least to other native speaking Germans that took part in combat action especially towards the end of the war. You will find that at present, no German politician will ever utter or use the expression ‘Nazis’. Even the Russians use the expression Hitlerites To me and those others that went through the last stages of the war I mentioned before it is hurtful.
      My main-function as a so called ‘Hilfsausbilder’ (Assistant Instructor) at the age seventeen, was to train Volkssturm -men that were my grandfather’s age in the use of a Panzerfaust in an effort to stop American Armour.
      I did deploy them as good as I could, but they had only one chance: A direct hit at an oncoming tank or Half Track vehicle.
      It was very rarely that I ever saw any that I had deployed and an entire Brigade was decimated south of Remagen. There was hardly a single NAZI among them, they just obeyed a seventeen old youngster for the glory of the Reich and the final victory!
      I am now 89 years old till living a comfortable life, yet I have a guilty conscience that haunts me. To see comments you and others publish are of interest to me and many others of the same background, but as a Nazi a gross insult.

      Finally, I would withdraw the use of Scheißhaufen if I could.

        Did you make a mistake in writing this? The expression “but as a Nazi” sound like you are saying that YOU are a Nazi.

          Americans in general seem to have little perception of the meaning; ‘Nazis’

          The expression ‘Nazi’ was originally coined as the battle cry of communist elements in the post-war period of WW I. Myself and the majority of German people followed the emergence of National Socialism under Hitler and had their support until the outbreak of war, but were never a member of the NSDAP or any sister organization thereof, whom you claim to be a Nazis in your option, although in most professions unless you persued a career, you had no choice but loin the NSDAP.
          Myself and the many millions like me considered themselves Germans first and die if necessary for your country but never as Nazis or being abused nor described as such.

          Those I sent at the end of the war to their deaths, their spirits haunt me in the early morning waking hours to this day

            Under the Hitler regime if you called me a Nazi, you would finish up in Dachau as a communist. I doubt that you would ever come out alive
