Has Germany given up “its effort to overcome past misdeeds by suppressing any vestige of nationalism?”

Filed under: Germany, Uncategorized, World War II — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 9:57 am

The title of my blog post includes a quote from an article in a German newspaper. You can read the article in full at https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/17/world/europe/germany-far-right-politics-afd.html?_r=0

The following quote is from the newspaper article, cited above:

Begin quote

POTSDAM, Germany — As the far right rises across Europe, its ascent in Germany has seemed among the most alarming and puzzling.

For decades, Germany was thought to be inoculated against far-right politics by its history with Naziism and the Holocaust. But today, Germany is experiencing a resurgence of the right — driven, at least in part, by its effort to overcome past misdeeds by suppressing any vestige of nationalism.

Since World War II, trying to define the German national identity, much less celebrate it, has been taboo. Doing so was seen as a possible step toward the kind of nationalism that once enabled the Nazi regime. [German] Flags were frowned upon, as was standing for the [German] national anthem.

End quote

I recall an incident, several years ago, when I was watching a parade of cars, down a main street, in a Germany city. Young men were sitting on top of the back seats of the cars, smiling and waving. A crowd of German people was standing on the street and waving to the men, but no one was cheering. Not the players, not the crowd of people.

I asked a German man who was standing near me: “What is going on?” He told me that these men were the players on a football team that had just won a national championship.

Finally, I understood: the German people were not allowed to have any pride. They had to forever hang their heads in shame because the Germans killed Jews many years ago.

It seems that now the Germans are taking back their pride in being German.  I am cheering for the German people.

The news article ends with this quote:

Begin quote

But spurred by a sense of lost control over the country’s borders, economy and politics, many Germans are reaching for a shared identity but finding only an empty space. Into that vacuum slipped the Alternative for Germany, known by its German initials, AfD, the nation’s fastest-growing party with recent polls showing support at 12 percent, ahead of some mainstream parties.

Were there two women at Auschwitz, named Edith Stein and Edith Steiner?

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust, Uncategorized, World War II — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 10:24 am

Sometimes it is possible to find the light of love even in the darkest of times. Like Edith Steiner who was just 20 when she barely escaped death while being held at the Auschwitz concentration camp by the Nazis. John Mackay, the then-23-year-old Scottish soldier who saved Edith, is still with her celebrating their 71st Valentine’s Day together. Edith and her mother were the only remaining members of their family who had not been sent to the gas chambers which meant certain death. But they were saved by a commando team – which Mackay was a part of – that freed a number of Jewish prisoners from the clutches of the Nazis in Poland.

I didn’t know that Scottish soldiers liberated Auschwitz. Stupid me!

I wrote about the liberation of Auschwitz on my website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/AuschwitzScrapbook/History/Articles/Liberation.html

The following quote is from my website:

The Auschwitz main camp, the Birkenau death camp and the Monowitz labor camp were liberated by soldiers of the Soviet Union in the First Army of the Ukrainian Front, under the command of Marshal Koniev, on January 27, 1945.

How could I have been so wrong! Now I know that it was actually Scottish soldiers who liberated Auschwitz — NOT!

I have added the link above, which goes to my favorite movie, which is about the bombing of Dresden.  This link goes to a free movie.

In the movie, if you listen closely, you can hear when David Irving’s book on the bombing of Dresden, is mentioned in the movie.

You are encouraged to take some time today, to watch this movie and think about what happened on February 13, 1945.

In an article that you can read here, it is claimed that Otto Skorzeny worked as a Mossad agent.

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

Otto Skorzeny, one of the Mossad’s most valuable assets, was a former lieutenant colonel in Nazi Germany’s Waffen-SS and one of Adolf Hitler’s favorites.

Nazi Killer Magic (AHC)

Filed under: Germany, TV shows, Uncategorized, World War II — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 6:44 am

I had a chance recently to watch a TV show on the American Heroes Channel, AHC, which was entitled “Nazi Killer Magic”.

Much of the show follows the typical AHC format.  It is made to look more “historical” by the flashing of a series of dates, which will be familuar to more sophisticated viewers. These dates are then followed by stock footage, which AHC seems to use again and again, in show after show.

I am particularly interested in Rudolf Hess and his relation to astrology and the occult.

Begin list of dates and players:

March 20th 1945 – Final assault on Berlin begins.  The show claims that Gobbles, the third Reich’s biggest skeptic turns to Astrology.

November 30th 1945 – Nuremberg trials, the show claims that any reference to the occult is forbidden from being admitted into evidence.

March 1917 – Story about how Hitler moved away from his fellow solders as if guided by divine providence, moments before a shell strikes.  (I have been trying to find the account of this incident in Mein Kampf but can’t seem to find it)

Erik Jan HanussenNamed as famous occultist in TV show.  Show claims that Hanussen was Hitler’s speaking coach. It is later reveled that he was a jew.

January 30th 1933 – Hitler comes to power.

Febuary 27th 1933 – Reichstag fire which the show claims Hanussen predicted.  He is killed soon after.

March 12th 1938 – Anschluss with Austria, first mention of the “spear of destiny“.

September 1st 1939 – given as the start of world war two, when England and France declare war on Germany.

November 1939 – Failed assassination attempt on Hitler.

Karl Ernst KraftAstrologer – the show mentions that Goebbels, with Kraft’s help, is using predictions of Nostradamus for propaganda purposes.

Alister Crowleymentioned as inventor of the V for victory sign used in England.

Minute 19 into the program

Here was one part of the show I actually found interesting.

The show claims that  British intelligence officers were targeting Hess, planting information that the stars were beckoning him to come to Germany.

Interestingly, the show claims that the name of the British “black ops” mission was “Operation Mistletoe.”

I had never heard these claims about British black ops astrologers targeting Hess before.  I am currently researching David Irving’s writing on the subject of Hess’s flight to Scotland.

Aktion Hess – The show talks about how after Hess flew to Scotland, all of the Astrologers in Germany were rounded up.  The show did have a good quip from Gobbles on the subject.  “Surprisingly not one of them predicted it.”

Hanns Hörbiger – World Ice Theory

June 22nd 1941 – Invasion of Russia, show claims timing of invasion based on Hanns Hörbiger .

December 1941 – Germans turned back at the gates of Moscow.  Lack of winter clothing recanted.

1943  World Ice Theory blamed, Hitler dreams that V2 rockets will hit Ice in space and supposedly cancels V2 program for a while.

Winter 1944 – Spring 1945 Werewolf program,  the show includes images of medieval Werewolves interspersed with actual Hitler Youth partisans.  It claims that the name of this program is rooted in the occult.

I think this part of the show might really appeal to Twitards.

March 23rd 1945, sound of wolf howling played on German radio.

Febuary 1945 -defeat inevitable, astrologers brought in.

Almost lastly, the show claims that Hitler’s death was a magical act, in view of the fact that he wanted his body to be burned.

April 25th 1945 – Show recounts Patton’s recapture of the spear of destiny in Nuremberg.  Claims that Patton believed in the spear of destiny.  Show recounts how the spear was placed six years earlier in a vault under the chapel in the castle in Nuremberg.

November 30th 1945. (again) Show recounts how Hess was not allowed to make a statement.  “Hess was silenced, and they Silenced forever” (at least they got that part right!)

That was the end of the show.

For those interested in further research it is interesting to note that Wikipedia currently takes a very skeptical view of Nazi occult theory.

who remembers the bombing of Dresden?

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust, Music, Uncategorized, World War II — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 7:54 am

The German city of Dresden was bombed by Allied planes on the night of Feb. 13 & 14 in 1945. World War II was almost over; why did a beautiful German city, that had nothing to do with the war, have to be destroyed? Funny you should ask!

(FILES) Photo dated 25 February 1945 showing residents and emergency personnel lining up bodies to be burned at the Old Market in the east German city of Dresden, following allied bombings 13 February 1945. The 60th anniversary of the massive fire bombing of the city, which killed anywhere between 25.000 to 135.000 people, many of them refugees fleeing the Russian advance, will be commemorated in Dresden 13 February 2005, amidst calls by far-right parties to hold a mass rally in Dresden on the occasion.

All you want to know about fake Holocaust photos…

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust, World War II — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 4:51 pm

The title of my blog post today is similar to the headline on a news article which you can read here: All you want to know about Holocaust

The first photo below is shown in the recent news article:

same photo cropped differently

same location with a different photo cropped differently

Both of these two different photos show prisoners at the Nordhausen camp, who were killed by American bombs during World War II. Note the fence posts on the right hand side of both photos, which are the same kind of fence posts.

I wrote about this on this previous blog post:

https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2010/06/22/photos-dont-lie-but-liars-use-photographs-to-decieve/

The moral of this story is this: Don’t believe anything that you read in news stories about Jews, and don’t believe half of what you see on the Internet about Jews.

For info, Bruckner’s beautiful adagio was played twice in Germany during WW2: on January 31, 1943, after Paulus surrendered, and on May 1, 1945, as prelude to the announcement of Hitler’s death by Karl Dönitz.
