Leberkäse:The Food of Bavarian Royalty

Filed under: Food, Germany, Health, Uncategorized — furtherglory @ 8:19 am

leberkaese liver cheese, German foodI found an interesting article about this German food that you can read here.

Apparently it tastes almost exactly like spam.

Begin quote

Despite my curiosity, I wasn’t feeling confident about ordering the mystery meat so  J.P. (my German husband) offered to order it so that I could try a bite.  When it came out, I told my German companions that I thought it resembled SPAM which was met with blank stares.  “You know the meat that comes out of a can that’s really cheap and popular with university students.”  From the scowls on their faces it was clear that my unflattering comparison of Leberkäse to canned meat wasn’t appreciated.

I cautiously tasted a small bite – yep it tasted exactly like warm SPAM. Warning, if you feel the same way, you might want to keep your comments to yourself, or try one of the German dishes that is actually really good.

Should Germany’s “Monument of Shame” be torn down?

Berlin's Monument of Shame

The Monument of Shame in the heart of Berlin

SHOULD THIS MONUMENT OF SHAME BE TORN DOWN? YES!!!

Bjoern Hoecke said Tuesday that the Berlin memorial to the millions of Jews killed in the Holocaust is a “monument of shame.”

Björn Höcke in 2015

The following quote is from a news article which you can read in full at http://www.reuters.com/article/us-germany-afd-idUSKBN1521H3

Begin quote
BERLIN (AP) — Germany’s vice chancellor on Wednesday harshly condemned remarks by a prominent member of the nationalist Alternative for Germany party, who suggested ending the country’s decades-long tradition of acknowledging and atoning for its Nazi past.

Sigmar Gabriel wrote on Facebook that even though he knows the AfD party thrives on provocation, the comments by Bjoern Hoecke, who leads the party in the eastern state of Thuringia, were “shocking.”
“This is not just some kind of provocation,” Gabriel wrote. “We must never let this kind of demagoguery be undisputed.”

Hoecke had called the Berlin memorial to the millions of Jews killed in the Holocaust a “monument of shame.” He told party supporters in the eastern city of Dresden that no other country would erect such a memorial in its capital and called instead for Germany to take a “positive” attitude toward its history. He also said Germany needs to perform a “180-degree turn” when it comes to remembering its past.

My 2002 photo of the construction site before the Memorial to the Jews  was built

The 19,000 square-meter Memorial for the murdered Jews of Europe, which was opened to the public on May 12, 2005, consists of 2711 stones placed on sloping, uneven ground in an undulating wave-like pattern, giving visitors the feeling of insecurity as though the stones were on unstable ground.

Visitors can enter from all four sides, day or night, and wander on their own through the maze of stones, as though visiting a graveyard with nameless tombstones. The columns are sunk into the ground to various depths and at some places, they are higher than the heads of the visitors. There are no set paths or sign posts to guide viewers. The memorial was designed by architect Peter Eisenman to deliberately disorient visitors by having all the stones tilted slightly and paths that are not level.

Before 1945, this location was part of the Ministry Gardens; it was adjacent to the large complex of buildings which included Hitler’s Chancellery. After the war, it was part of the “death strip” along the Berlin wall. The memorial covers an area very close to the underground bunker where Adolf Hitler committed suicide on April 30, 1945. There is no access to Hitler’s bunker which still exists underground.

The famous Wannsee house — then and now

Famous house where the Holocaust was planned

Famous house where the Holocaust was planned

I copied the photo above from a recent article in USA today that you can read here.

My photo of the wanneee house, taken several years ago

My photo of the Wanneee house, taken several years ago

My photograph above, taken several years ago, shows the front of the Wannsee villa, as you approach from a short straight driveway off a street named Am Grossen Wannsee. (Wannsee is pronounced VON-say.)

The property has now been converted into a Holocaust Museum, which opened in 1992 on the fiftieth anniversary of the conference.

Wannsee is a famous suburb of Berlin, where Brad Pitt once rented a house, when he was making a movie in Germany several years ago.

My blog post today has nothing to do with Brad Pitt, but I wanted my readers to know that Wannsee is a famous location in Germany — where the rich and famous live.

More important is the fact that Wannsee is famous as the place where the Holocaust was planned.

The following quote is from my website:

After World War II ended on May 8, 1945, the Allied powers began a search for the Nazi documents that they would need as evidence at the Nuremberg International Military Tribunal which was set to begin in November 1945. They found tons of paperwork including secret documents hidden in salt mines and behind walls in the Nazi administration buildings. But the one most important document, the order signed by Adolf Hitler which gave the authority for the genocide of the Jews, was never found.

Finally, in 1947, long after the first proceedings of the Nuremberg IMT had ended, the minutes of a conference held on January 20, 1942 at a villa in Wannsee, a district of Berlin, were found. At this conference, the plans for the “Final Solution to the Jewish Question” had been discussed. Today, tourists can stand in the very room where the plans were made for the genocide of the Jews.

My photo of the Wannsee house

My photo of driveway leading up to the Wannsee house

Fifteen top officials of the Nazi bureaucracy and the SS attended the Wannsee conference, which was led by 38-year-old Obergruppenführer Reinhard Heydrich, the chief of the Reich Security Main Office (RSHA).

On May 27, 1942, Reinhard Heydrich was wounded when a group of Czech resistance fighters, who had escaped to England, returned and made an attempt on his life in Prague. Heydrich died of his wounds on June 4, 1942.

The minutes or protocols of the Wannsee meeting, 15 pages in all, were written by 36-year-old Adolf Eichmann. The copy that was found in 1947 was undated and unsigned; it had no stamp of any Bureau. The copy appeared to be a draft report of the meeting that was held on January 20, 1942 at Wannsee.

The full title of the Conference was “The Final Solution of the Jewish Question in Europe.” The original phrase was “a final territorial solution of the Jewish question.” The term “Jewish Question” referred to a question that had been discussed for years: Should the Jews have their own state within the country where they lived, or should they assimilate?

On the witness stand at the Nuremberg IMT, Hermann Goering said that the conference was about “the total solution to the Jewish Question” and that it meant the evacuation of the Jews, not extermination.

The full words to the song are:

Heilig Vaterland! In Gefahren
deine Söhne sich um dich scharen.
Von Gefahren umringt, heilig Vaterland
Alle stehen wir Hand in Hand

Bei den Sternen steht, was wir schwören
Der die Sterne lenkt, wird uns hören
Eh der Fremde dir deine Kronen raubt
Deutschland, fallen wir Haupt bei Haupt!
Heilig Vaterland, heb zur Stund Kühn

dein Angesicht in die Runde

Sieh uns all entbrannt, Sohn bei Söhnen stehn
Du sollst bleiben, Land, wir vergehn

The English translation is:

Holy Fatherland! In dangers
Your sons are gathered around thee.
Surrounded by perils, holy Fatherland
We all stand hand in hand.

The stars are what we swear
He who directs the stars will hear us
the stranger robbed thee of your crowns
Germany, we fall head at home!
Holy Fatherland, rise to the hour.

Bring your face into the round.

Look at us all burned, son with sons
You shall stay, land, we will perish.

Wilhelm Canaris

Filed under: Dachau, David Irving, Germany, Uncategorized, World War II — furtherglory @ 7:34 am

‘Nun ja, wir mussten den kleinen Admiral mehrmals hoch und runter ziehen weil er so lange zappelte bis er endlich aufgab,.

Translation: Well yes, we had to pull the little Admiral several times up and down because he struggled quite long before he gave up.

Wilhelm Canaris was the head of the Abwher, which was the German military intelligence agency during most of the Nazi era.  Canaris was also a traitor and a double agent, who plotted to assassinate Hitler.  He ended up being hung and strangled by a violin wire on April 9th 1945 in the Flossenberg concentration  camp.

If Donald Trump is the new Hitler, and history repeats itself, then that would mean that Trump’s new appointment, who will become the head of American military intelligence, will also be a traitor, just like Canaris, and might end up being executed for treason.

Bundesarchiv Bild 146-1979-013-43, Wilhelm Canaris.jpg

On January 12th 2017, I wrote a blog post, in my new “name that Nazi” series, in which I asked my readers to identify the man in the photo above.  That same day, I also wrote another blog post entitled “Trump compares US intelligence agencies to Nazi Germany”. 

 You can read my January 12th blog posts here:

https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2017/01/12/

There were two outstanding comments on this earlier blog post.  There was an exceptional comment, made by Herbert Stolpmann, that I used, in part, to begin this blog post today.

Jett Rucker was the first reader to correctly identify the man in the photo.

BEGIN OUTSTANDING COMMENTS ON MY EARLIER BLOG POST:

One of the two hangman commented during an interview about the execution of Canaris: ‘Nun ja, wir mussten den kleinen Admiral mehrmals hoch und rrunter ziehen weil er so lange zappelte bis er endlich aufgab,.

(‘Well yes, we had to pull the little Admiral several times up and down because he struggle quite long before he gave up)

This means that a lynching procedure took place and would have been ordered from the highest level of the hierarchy, with Hitler’s full knowledge, so as to make it as cruel as possible.

END COMMENTS ON MY EARLIER BLOG POST

I wrote a little bit about Canaris on my website, which you can read here:

http://www.scrapbookpages.com/DachauScrapbook/ElserExecution.html

BEGIN QUOTE FROM MY SCRAPBOOK PAGES WEB SITE

On the same day that the Dachau Museum says that Georg Elser was killed by a bomb, April 9, 1945, a group of traitors to the Fatherland, including Rear Admiral Wilhelm Canaris and General Hans Oster were executed at the Flossenbürg concentration camp on the orders of Gestapo Chief Heinrich Müller, but there was no attempted cover-up of these executions. Canaris, who was the head of the Abwehr, Nazi Germany’s military intelligence agency, before he was arrested, was involved in two failed attempts to assassinate Hitler in 1938 and 1939. General Oster had been arrested the day after the failed July 20, 1944 attempt to assassinate Hitler. On April 8, 1945, General Wilhelm Canaris and General Hans Oster were put on trial and both were convicted.

END QUOTE FROM MY SCRAPBOOKPAGES WEB SITE

You can read about the downfall of Canaris on Wikipedia by clicking here:

Wikipedia makes a few glaring errors.  In particular, the reason for Canaris initially being removed from his post.

https://en.wikipedia.on/wiki/Wilhelm_Canaris#Downfall_and_execution

Canaris was removed from his post as head of military intelligence, because he failed to obtain any intelligence about the allied landing at Anzio on January 22, 1944.

In  the 2002 version of David Irving’s book entitled “Hitler’s War”, the real story of Canaris’s dismissal from his position, as head of military intelligence, is given.

BEGIN QUOTE FROM HITLER’S WAR PAGE 652:

Wholly unexpected – and without even a hint from the German Intelligence services – on Jan 22 an American corps staged a sudden seaborne landing south of Rome at Anzio – to the rear of the German lines.  Misled by the assurances of Admiral Canaris, Kesselring had denuded this coastline; only two German battalions met the American troops….

Hitler asked Jodle to determine precisely why Intelligence had failed to predict the landing at Anzio.  Kesselring claimed that it was Canaris’s fault.  In February, Erich Vermeheren, an important Abwher agent in Turkey, put the last nail in the Admiral’s coffin.  This brought even Cicero’s operations to an abrupt end.  Hitler had had enough of Admiral Canaris.  He told Himmler to set up a “unified German secret Intelligence service.”

END QUOTE FROM HITLER’S WAR

Also completely absent from the current Wikipedia page is the important date of September 26th 1944.

BEGIN QUOTE FROM HITLER’S WAR – PAGE 740-741

Later that day, September 26, [1944], Heinrich Himmler arrived with a bulging briefcase of things to discuss.  Heading the agenda was the topic, ‘Treason since 1939.’  In a locked safe at the Abwher headquarters outside Berlin, Gestapo investigations had found documents proving that Mayor Gordeler, General Oster, General Beck, and above all Vice-Admiral Canaris – the slippery former chief of Intelligence – had been plotting Hitler’s overthrow since 1939 at least.  Canaris and his men had deliberately betrayed the plans and dates of Hitler’s 1940 western campaign (‘Yellow’) to the enemy.

These documents had been assembled by two of the admiral’s staff – General Oster and Hans vot Dohnanyi – with the view toward someday prosecuting Brauchitsch, then the army’s Commander in Chief, for refusing to aid the anti-Hitler plotters.  From General Munzos Grandes, who had commanded Spain’s contingent in Russia, Hitler had already learned some time ago that Canaris had personally warned Franco against bringing Spain in to the war on Hitler’s side.  Since his arrest in July, Canaris had told ingenious tales, but those who had rejected the Third Reich – Oster and Dohnbanyi – betrayed their friend Canaris equally willingly in face-to-face encounter.  General Alexander von Pfuhlstien, former commander of the ‘Brandenburg’ (Commando) Division, had been arrested on September 4, [1944] and he had once discussed using the division to storm the Wolf’s Lair; Canaris had confidently predicted Germany’s defeat for December 1943.  Colonel George Hansen invited his questioners to search for Canaris’s diaries, these damning documents were evidently found in the locked safe of another Abwher colonel who had succumbed to the suicide epidemic after July 20 – they vanished at the end of the war.

The documents showed that the plotters had sent the then Colonel Georg Thomas – another of Keitel’s department heads – to win over Halder and Brauchitsch in November 1939.  Hadler had refused: Britain’s fight was against the whole of Germany, he had said, not just Hitler.  A 1939 “study’ by Oster dealt explicitly with a coup d’etat.  There were voluminous memorandum by General Bech, and scattered pages of the fabled Canaris diary throwing a revealing new light on the 1943 Black Chapel case and the Abwehr dealings with the Vatican.  In April 1940, the documents indicated, Thomas had shown Halder a treacherous message from one Dr. Joseph Muller: the Vatican was willing to intercede with the British and French provided Hitler and Ribbentrop were first eliminated.  On being informed of this approach, Brauchtish had proposed to Halder that Thomas be arrested.  The same Joseph Muller had betrayed the date of ‘Yellow’ to the Vatican evidently on Abwehr instructions, since Canaris ordered the affair hushed up.  Oster had also warned the Dutch directly.

Hitler grimly informed Jodl of the news Himmler had brought.  The facts about Admiral Canaris were so terrible, he said, that he could not make them public until the war was over; then there would be a state trial at which the German people could take their revenge.

END QUOTE FROM HITLER’S WAR

In the pages which follow, Irving records how, on the following evening, Hitler’s health took a turn for the worse, and how he was unable to attend war counsels for several days.

Irving leaves it to his readers to draw a causal connection between the news of September 26th and Hitler’s health problems which started in earnest the following night, and lasted for days.  When I read this, I did draw a probable causal connection between the two.

Irving goes on, in his book, to record the Admirals last days.

BEGIN QUOTE FROM HITLER’S WAR page 807-808:

…at Flossenberg camp they left the traitors Admiral Canaris and General Oster.  A few days before, General Buhle had stumbled by chance on the long-sought diaries of Canaris, and these sealed the Abwehr chief’s fate.  He and General Oster were hanged after a summary court-martial on [April] the ninth [1945].

The country of Germany, that once was, is now gone. The glory that was once Germany is gone, and it will never come back again. Germany is now full of non-Germans who commit crimes, and  wreak havoc.

Over a  million Jews have come back to Germany. The Jews are God’s Chosen People — everyone else is dog shit.  The Jews can live wherever they want; they don’t have to live in their own country.

The Jews prefer Germany, where they can now lie, steal and cheat to their heart’s content.

I have just finished watching the full version of Leni Riefenstahl’s award-winning film, entitled Triumph of the Will, which is over an hour long. This is a PG film that is suitable for children to watch.

However, I must warn you that this film is extremely boring — how many goose-stepping German soldiers can you watch without being bored to death?

You can hear German people speaking Germany correctly, which I could never do.  I cannot trill an R, the way that the Germans did back then.

One thing, that is very interesting in the movie, is that all the people in the movie are German, and none of them appear to be overweight; the men are all at least 6 ft tall and most of them have blond hair.

If you go to Germany now, you will see every race and nationality of people and these people are citizens of Germany. There are black Germans, Jewish Germans, and every other nationality of Germans. In other words, Germany is not Germany any more, and that is a pity.

This blog post generated a huge number of irrelevant comments which you can read on the link below. At last count over 166 completely irrelevant comments in all.

I have made a small collection of comments that have some relevance to my original blog post below.

Not true for Germany only. The rest of Western Europe is similar, to varying extents. And as far as I know, North America is not in a better condition. The Jewish poison is lethal and no people can survive a long-term exposure to it.

If any Gentile doesn’t rejoice at the [planned and organized] disappearance of his people, he/she is instantly labelled a Nazi, a hater, a racist and a genocidal murderer by the Jewish deceiver and his/her useful idiots.

  • Marvelous, isn’t it – that a professor in the educational world can come out with this blatant piece of genocidal racism, without his colleagues and peers objecting. And yet, if the word “white” were replaced with “black”, or “Jew” then they would all be howling like rabid dogs, and demanding that such a “hater” should be driven out of academia immediately.

Comment by Talbot — January 6, 2017 @ 8:52

  • Yeah, Germany is “history”. I mentioned that Hitler made a comment about the ”survival of Germany “ in Mein Kampf. He said Germany was fighting WW I for her very ”existence”.I don’t see how that is considered to be ”racist”. That’s one man who loved his country, and he wanted to make sure that it stayed in German hands.Germany is not like America. America IS a nation of immigrants. Germany isn’t Germans, who emigrated over here when Germany was still pretty much Germany, would talk about going back to the ”fatherland”. Good luck on trying to find it now.Comment by Tim — January 9, 2017 @ 11:48
  • Κλέων Ι.wrote: ” When they say ‘we’re the chosen people’, they mean that, according to their faith, God gave them extra responsibilities and codes of behavior that other groups aren’t burdened with. That’s all it means, that God bestows not particular privileges but rather particular duties upon Jews.”

    Quite true. But you forgot to mention that the main of these duties is our ‘liberation.’ In Jewish minds, God tasked them with the duty to destroy and abolish all the ‘artificial constructions’ established by Gentiles, the ‘false gods’ of all nations & peoples (i.e. the boundaries between Gentile races, classes, religions, moral standards, cultures, nations, genders, etc.). The ‘liberation’ of mankind is their divine mission. Every non-Jewish order must be obliterated for that specific purpose. Mashiah won’t show his ugly hooked nose before Jewry has fully achieved that. No world shabbat (rest) under the paternal guidance of benevolent Mashiah before that time. Jews are undeniably great destroyers, but they do that for our own sake, for our own freedom and happiness (in their twisted mind).

    A rare moment of Jewish honesty:

    But Jews also regard themselves as a superior people, as “the [real and legitimate] aristocrats of this world” (as once formulated by Zionist leader Samuel Untermyer). That’s is why they can be both supremacists and egalitarians. No paradox for them.

    Don’t fall for the Judeo-Masonic scam of egalitarianism. It’s a trap, a deadly and destructive trap…

    “The doctrine of equality! There is no more poisonous poison anywhere: for it seems to be preached by justice itself, whereas it really is the termination of justice. ‘Equal to the equal, unequal to the unequal’—that would be the true slogan of justice; and also its corollary: ‘Never make equal what is unequal.” -Friedrich Nietzsche

Trump compares U.S. intelligence agencies to Nazi Germany.

The most insulting thing, that anyone can do or say, is to compare anyone or anything to Nazi Germany. The Nazis were the worst! “The worst Jerry — the worst!” [quote from the Seinfeld show]

The following quote is from a news article which you can read in full at: http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/jan/11/anti-defamation-league-says-trumps-nazi-remarks-di/

Begin quote

The Anti-Defamation League on Wednesday accused President-elect Donald Trump of diminishing “the horror of the Holocaust” by comparing U.S. intelligence agencies to Nazi Germany.

“The President-Elect’s use of Nazi Germany to make a political analogy is not only an inappropriate comparison on the merits, but it also coarsens our discourse and diminishes the horror of the Holocaust,” ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt said in a statement.

His statement comes after Mr. Trump slammed U.S. intelligence agencies for allegedly leaking an unsubstantiated Russian report to the media.

You can read all about The Donald’s offensive tweet at http://www.cnbc.com/2017/01/11/trump-melts-down-on-twitter-are-we-living-in-nazi-germany.html

Here’s the short answer to your tweet, Donald:

Nazi Germany was a paradise because Hitler got the Jews out of Germany. The Trump administration will have Jews in high places, including your son-in-law Jared Kushner. So America will not be like Nazi Germany — it will be just the opposite of Nazi Germany.

Here is the full text of the news article:

President-elect Donald Trump on Wednesday claimed he has “nothing to do with Russia” and argued that he is the victim of political attacks after reports that intelligence officials briefed him with damaging accusations about ties to Moscow.

The FBI is not actively investigating the information, which was initially circulated among Trump opponents and has not been verified by intelligence agencies, two U.S. officials told NBC News. Those sources did not comment to NBC about the nature of the allegations.

On Twitter, Trump called the reports “unfair” and said, “Russia has never tried to use leverage over me.” Trump claimed that he has “no deals, no loans, no nothing” with Russia, an assertion that is difficult to verify because he has not released his tax returns, unlike every president since Jimmy Carter.

He [Trump] argued that political opponents “try to belittle” his electoral victory. Trump asked, “Are we living in Nazi Germany?”

End quote from news article.

On my website, I wrote about the conditions in Nazi Germany:

https://www.scrapbookpages.com/Sachsenhausen/introduction.html

The following quote is from the web page, cited above:

In 1936, Hitler was more loved and admired than all the other world leaders put together. He was also the only world leader who was actively helping the Zionists with their plan to reclaim Palestine as their country.

While America and the rest of Europe were still in the depths of the depression caused by the stock market crash in October 1929, Germany had stabilized its economy and had virtually eliminated unemployment. Unlike the other countries in Europe in 1936, Nazi Germany was doing well, thanks in part to American investment capital. Many American businessmen, led by auto maker Henry Ford, supported Hitler and his Fascist form of government. Other prominent Americans who supported Hitler included Joseph P. Kennedy (the father of President John F. Kennedy), and Prescott Bush (the grandfather of President George W. Bush) and Charles Lindbergh.
