• Hitler and the Third Reich

    618

    Today’s Date April 20th: April 20, 1889, the founder of National Socialism, Adolf Hitler, was born in Braunau. Hitler was an artist, politician, author, commander and leader of the German folk. Here is the story of his life.


    Childhood

    Adolf Hitler was born on April 20, 1889, in the town of Braunau in Upper Austria. Braunau had previously belonged to Bavaria but in 1779 it became Austrian. The fact that Hitler was born on the German-Austrian border was, in his view, a major reason why he later fought for a united Germany when he felt that “the same blood belongs in a common kingdom.

    After a few years, the Hitler family moved to Passau and later to Linz, the capital of Upper Austria. His father, Alois Hitler, was a customs official and married to Klara Pölzl. Subsequently, Klara Hitler had born three children before Adolf, who died in a cot. Adolf had a little brother, Edmund Hitler, and a little sister, Paula. Paula Hitler, who was the only siblings who reached the age of adults, died in 1960 and never distanced herself from her brother. She said that Adolf Hitler would not have been able to carry out a “holocaust” and that he was definitely not aware of any such occurrence.

    Hitler’s national consciousness came early and was largely due to the historian teacher Hitler had at the secondary school in Linz and mentioned in Mein Kampf. The history teacher Leonard Pötsch identify himself with the storytelling, like the schoolchildren when they listened to him. Hitler felt that the school was “ridiculously easy” and he instead spent a lot of time outdoors. His favourite subjects were world history and geography, and he showed early funding for drawing. Hitler’s artistic interest would later result in a conflict with his father who wanted Adolf to also take a desk service, and Hitler therefore deliberately neglected the school to get his will through. Until his father finally gave in.

    At the age of 12, Hitler came into contact with the theatre culture when he saw Wilhelm Tell performed at the theatre in Linz. A few months later, for the first time, he listened to opera, Lohengrin by Richard Wagner. The interest in art and culture would follow him throughout his life.

    His father died of a stroke when he was only 13 years old. At the age of 17, Hitler sought to Vienna’s Academy of Arts, but was refused and was advised to rather apply to the Academy’s Architectural School where it was focused within the field of his talent. When the Jews largely mastered the art of life in Vienna, this event, which happened before Hitler had come to the knowledge of the Jewish question, was used by obscene historians as evidence that Hitler was obsessed with the Jews, as he was blamed because he himself was a “failed “Artist. This is not true. Admittedly, Hitler felt a year later that the influence of the Jews over the art had destroyed the same, but he accepted the rejection he received from Vienna’s Academy of Arts. Hitler writes in Mein Kampf that “for the first time in my young life, I was dissatisfied with myself […] After a couple of days, I also realized that I would become an architect.

    However, when Hitler tried to become an architect, the neglect of some subjects would be punished when the architectural school demanded a full real school diploma. Hitler decided to go to Vienna and try his luck himself, but now as an artist and not as an architect. An accelerator of the decision was that his mother passed away with breast cancer when Hitler was 17 years old. He was now orphaned, economically embarrassed and had nothing to lose on going to Vienna.

    Hitler wrote about his parents in Mein Kampf that “I had honoured my father, but loved my mother“.

    Vienna

    In 1907, Hitler went to Vienna with “a suitcase with clothes and linen in his hand and with an unshakable will in his heart“. But life in Vienna was extremely difficult for many. Hitler spent several years working as a craftsman and painter at construction sites. A job could be for a couple of hours or days at its height, and when the construction site was ready, Hitler was forced to seek a new job. After a few years, he got a little better, as he was able to make a living on his painting, but not even the money was enough. Hitler was homeless for a period and was forced to live at a shelter. He described his stay in Vienna as “five years of sadness and sorrow“.

    “The old residence castle in Munich” by Adolf Hitler.

    But it was also in Vienna that Hitler became politically aware, first about the social issue, later on the Jewish. Hitler writes in Mein Kampf:

    There were thousands of unemployed in front of the palace on Ringstrasse, and during this time the old Austria’s ‘triumphalism’ had their homelessness in the clouds and thunder of the canals. There was hardly any German city where the social issue could be studied better than in Vienna. But you have to do it the right way. These “studies” could not be done from above. Those who do not even know the worm squeeze around their throats will never get acquainted with their poison teeth.

    Hitler began to read everything about politics and realized how much influence Jews had over Vienna. He also noted that the Jews mastered art and culture in Vienna, owned the media and supported the monarchy. From the beginning, Hitler did not care about this Jewish influence. He was rather ashamed that he had these thoughts and could not understand why the people of Vienna despised the Jews.

    I saw in the Jews only his creed of faith and, therefore, was of pure human tolerance, even in this case opponents of religious persecution. Thus, the tone of the anti-Semitic press in Vienna seemed unworthy of the cultural tradition of a great people.

    That’s when Hitler discovered that the media expressed themselves as hostile to Germany as he began to “consider the great press with greater caution“. Over time, he also began to consider the men behind the press with great care, until one day he had reason to make a personal consideration:

    When I saw a beautiful day flanking in the centre, I suddenly encountered a black locked revelation in the long covenant.
    Is this also a Jew? Was my first thought.
    They did certainly not look this way in Linz. I looked at the man furtively and cautiously, but the longer I stared into this strange face, and with a search, I studied that move, the more in my mind the first question took another form:
    Is he also German?

    When Hitler realized who ruled Vienna’s prostitution activities, he first got “cold shivers down his back” before he “exploded“. Then he began to discuss and actively seek information on these conditions:

    Now I did not stop talking about the Jewish question, no, now I wanted to discuss it on the contrary. When I learned to search for the Jews in all directions and opinions of cultural and artistic life, I suddenly encountered him in places where, I certainly not, expected to find him. When I found the Jew as a Social Democratic leader, the mountains began to fall from my eyes […] For me, the moment was the greatest revolution ever in my heart. From being a passive citizen of the world, I had become a fanatic antisemite.

    The first World war

    At the beginning of 1912, Hitler left Vienna for Munich. Bavaria’s capital was nothing but the “Babylon of the races” he lived in the past five years. The time in “the Metropolis of German Art” became Hitler’s “happiest and incomparably most harmonious pre-war era“. By this time, Hitler devoted greater interest to foreign policy than social policy. He followed the newspapers of interest what was happening during both the Boer War and the Russian-Japanese war. Hitler also understood that Germany, surrounded by three superpowers, was heading for a major war.

    In August 1914, the First World War broke out and Hitler applied for permission to belong to a Bavarian regiment. He came, though he was Austrian, to belong to the infantry regiment in List throughout the war. Hitler became the orderly of the regiment and always volunteered for dangerous missions.

    Hitler quickly became known for his “courage and exemplary conduct during every battle“, which “combined with his admirable inseparability, acquired his respect for both the superior and the crew“. The fact that Hitler was not promoted said one of his officers, Lieutenant Horn, was because “if Hitler had been promoted to Sergeant, he would not be able to remain orderly” and that the government would “lose one of its best orderly.” During the war, Hitler received numerous awards and was decorated with two iron crosses. He was also wounded on two occasions.

    In November 1918, Germany surrendered. Hitler had been wounded (blind to battle gas) and was in a military hospital in Berlin when he received the message of a priest. With tears in his eyes, the priest told the wounded soldiers that the Emperor had been forced to abdicate and the Socialists proclaimed a republic. Hitler was desperate.

    NSDAP’s early development

    While the Germans had fought at the front, the Marxists, with Social Democracy as its main representative, organized an anti-war front on the home ground. The Social Democratic goal was to get into power, overthrow the monarchy and introduce a republic, but a victorious Germany was in the way of their plans. Therefore, they propagated against German victory in Germany.

    The result of this dagger shock in the back was that Germany lost the war and the November Revolution, which began as a mystery within the German Navy, broke out. Various Marxist groups, Social Democrats and Bolsheviks fought about who would have power. The Jewish Communist, Kurt Eisner – then taken care of by a reserve officer – established a council dictatorship in Munich on 7 November, and on November 9, the Emperor left. However, the great threat of civil war forced the Social Democrats to seek military support and the most extreme Bolshevik leaders were captured and killed, including Jewish Spartacists Karl Liebknecht and Rosa Luxemburg. In August 1919, the Weimar Constitution was signed and Germany became a parliamentary democracy.

    Hitler returned to Munich, first in November 1918 and then in March 1919. He accepted an offer to become a political agent for the national defence and was charged with investigating a small association called the German Labor Party, which had only six members. Hitler listened to a lecture of “the boring association”, as he called it, and was prepared to go when a discussion was to be held. One of the participants argued that Bavaria would free himself from Prussia, which was such a kind of peacemaking speech Hitler deprived and whom he would fight for years to come. Hitler asked for the word and said his opinion. This made such an impression that they would like to recruit Hitler and that he finally accepted this offer, after much doubt.

    Hitler began his political work as the party’s propaganda officer. He wanted the party to get more members and managed to get the other members to perform before the public. From the beginning, a few dozen people came to their meetings but soon they became 100. This meeting was a big success and saved the party’s money. During the winter of 1919-1920, Hitler spoke constantly and hundreds of audience gathered at his meetings.

    On February 24, 1920, the party hosted its first mass meeting in Hofbräuhaus, which gathered thousands of listeners. At this meeting, the party’s twenty-five-point program was adopted. The party was still called the German Labor Party but would become the National Socialist Labor Party, NSDAP, in April that year. The party program, which to its content was not only national but also socialist, would break up foreign influence over the media, tear up the Versailles Treaty and unite Germany.

    The party’s meetings were now protected by the SA, founded in 1920. Hitler made early that SA should not be a secret organization but also a military security association. In Mein Kampf, Hitler writes that SA’s education must “not be done according to the military but for the party’s purposeful views“. Another point Hitler had where the party had to take care of its own security because “every meeting, which is exclusively protected by the police, discredits the organizers in the eyes of the public audience.

    On February 3, 1921, NSDAP held its first really big mass meeting, which took place at Circus Krone, where a total of 6500 listeners gathered. The threat of explosion by the Red Campaigns came to an end, and Hitler spoke for less than 2.5 hours. Hitler, was now regarded as an unofficial leader of the party, but he became the party leader in July the same year.

    On November 4, 1921, the meeting of NSDAP, which took place in Munich’s Hofbräuhaus, would eventually blow up. Hundreds of tough communists were commanded to attend the meeting. It also argued that NSDAP’s new phones had not been installed in the party’s new premises, resulting in only 46 national socialists in place to defend the meeting. This would be SA’s first really big power measurement. Hitler writes in Mein Kampf about when it broke loose and SA struck back:

    The dance had hardly begun until my storm troops – so they called from this day – went to attack. Like wolves, they threw in flocks of eight or ten over and over again their opponents and eventually throw all of them out of the hall. Already after five minutes, I hardly saw one of those who was not overcrowded with blood […] Twenty minutes, this hellish alarm lasted, but then the opponents, who I could count to seven or eight hundred men, were mostly driven out of the hall and chased down the stairs by my troops, which did not even reach fifty men.

    Hitler coup

    On the morning of November 9, 1923, Hitler marched with 2000 SA men against the Warsaw ministry in Munich. It was time for the story of the Hitler-Putsch (sometimes Hitler-Hindenburg-Putsch), which was later also called the “Beer Hall Putsch” because it started in the beer hall Bürgerbräukeller.

    The aim was to take over Munich and lead the march against Berlin. In 1923, French and Belgian troops had moved into Ruhr to claim compensation payments that had been decided in Versailles and signed by the November representatives in Berlin. Hyperinflation affected Germany and the economy broke down. The support for national socialists had increased and at this time 55,000 members were counted, most of them in Bavaria.

    The state cup failed. Hitler was to be betrayed by the General Commissioner Gustav von Kahr, who was deeply involved in the plot of the coup, General Otto von Lossow, as well as the Colonel Hans Ritter von Seisser. The coup attempt was fought at Feldherrenhalle and sixteen national socialists and four police were killed during the shooting.

    Hitler was now considered by many Germans as a hero and was also sentenced to the lowest possible punishment. Adolf Hitler, Friedrich Weber, Hermann Kriebel and Ernst Pöhner were sentenced to five years in prison each and five of the others sentenced for involvement in prison for one year and three months. Hitler spent a total of 13.5 months behind bars. He had now become famous throughout Germany and received gifts that he often gave away to co-workers or to the children who brought by visitors.

    During this time Hitler put forward ideas for national socialism. The book, the first part of which was written in the prison in Landsberg, was titled Mein Kampf and was dedicated to the martyrs who died in front of the Feldherrenhalle.

    The road to power

    Hitler was released from the prison just before Christmas in 1924 and on February 27, 1925, he again spoke in Bürgerbräukeller. The audience in the full hall listened to Hitler’s call for the ever more split motion. Hitler explained that NSDAP would continue the fight against the system, by legal means. Propaganda should be intensified. The party was newly formed, like the storm departments. However, SA would now be seriously incorporated into NSDAP as its political struggle. In addition to protecting the party’s meetings, SA would also work to spread the national socialist worldview. The SA men now got their brown shirt.

    In March 1925, Hitler was banned from speaking publicly in Bavaria and in other states. This ban was enforced until March 1927, for two years. In Prussia, the ban was lifted only at the end of 1928. However, this could not quell Hitler’s will. Hitler wrote articles to Völkischer Beobachter, wrote the second part of Mein Kampf and spoke in areas outside Bavaria where the ban was not available. Neither did the German capital need to be left behind. In 1926 Joseph Goebbels was appointed Gauleiter over Berlin. Like Hitler, Goebbels had an iron-hard will and mastered the art of the century. The Berlin Street Fight was extremely hard and Berlin SA’s uncompromising attitude gave the party lots of new members and fame, during a time when Hitler himself could not fully agitate.

    In November 1928, the system in Germany made another ban – a specific ban on national socialists to carry weapons. The unarmed SA men were subjected to a Communist terrorist wave without its similarity, where the outcome rarely was as in Bloodsnatten in Wöhrden. Estimated, the Communists harvested a thousand victims only in a few years and significantly more were seriously wounded. The foremost martyr became Horst Wessel who was feared and hated by the Communists because he could penetrate their meetings, agitate for national socialism and oppose recruiting from their joints. One of Horst Wessel’s poems, Die Fahne Hoch, (Horst Wessel-Lied) was recorded and became the NSDAP official song and a second national anthem beside Deutschlandlied.

     

    The hard-hitting SA continued to fight and the party grew uninterrupted. In 1930, the NSDAP was the country’s second-largest party and in April 1932 the party had over one million members. Later in the same year, in July and November, two parliamentary elections held rooms where NSDAP received 37.4 percent and 33.1 percent of the votes. Despite a slight decrease in the second election, NSDAP was now the country’s largest party and, on January 30, 1933, the power was further consolidated when Hitler was appointed to the Chancellor of Hindenburg.

    In the evening of February 1, Hitler held his first speech as a new national chancellor in a packed Sportpalast in Berlin. Hitler asked the people to give the National Socialists four years to power before they left them. Hitler promised that the new government was prepared to work for the German resurrection but that it would not come by itself, but that the people themselves had to work for it. He talked about not relying on foreign powers, without Germany being strong and independent.

    The third Reich

    On February 27, 1933, a fire broke out at the Parliament House in Berlin. It was a Dutch communist and another suspect, who was acquitted, was the KPD leader Ernst Torgler. For a long time, idiosyncratic historians have suggested or alleged that the national socialists were behind the House of Representatives in order to find a sweep to ban the communists. Information that the National Socialists would have put behind the fire is based on “evidence” fabricated by communists.

    The Communists would, however, be banned by a decree signed by the Reichstag President Hindenburg. Parties such as the KPD, who previously had the ability to commit a variety of raids and murders against national socialists and other national, were banned as enemies to the state.

    On March 5, elections were held in Germany when national socialists still were not in their own majority. During this last parliamentary election, NSDAP was by far the largest party with just over 17.3 million votes, corresponding to 43.9 percent of the vote. The result was not enough, however, but with the German National People’s Party, national socialists received 51.8 percent of the votes.

    Just a week after this earthquake victory, World War II declares war against Germany. The American Jews launched a global economic boycott against Germany in order to crack it, following Versailles, fragile German economy. When the Jews controlled large parts of world trade, this boycott was extremely harmful to Germany. NSDAP responded on April 1 with a nationwide boycott against Jewish shops in Germany. Unlike the Jewish Trade Boycott, this boycott lasted for only one day as a symbolic act.

    Jews in Madison Square Garden, March 27, 1933

    In June 1933, a book fire took place in Germany, where antique or degenerate literature of predominantly Jewish writers was thrown into the fire. Like the boycott against Jewish affairs, this action was also symbolic and a one-day action. There was no ban on reading these books, as it does in democratic countries of today, prohibiting politically incorrect literature through the law on popularization.

    The years 1933-1939 were, with a few exceptions, frictional and constructive where the Germans under national socialist leadership showed that they could stand strong and independent. In particular, Germany successfully managed to eradicate unemployment. In 1932, under the Weimar Republic, six million unemployed Germans were openly unemployed. In 1937 five million of these had received work. Numerous social reforms were carried out in Germany. In addition to better wages, workers also received termination agreements, more vacation than other European countries, better housing standards, health care and much more.

    A large part of the workers worked with the motorway Autobahn. In 1938, Organization Todt was founded as Fritz Todt himself led. This giant organization, employing about 1.5 million workers, incorporated the construction of the Autobahn with other missions such as repairs of war-damaged bridges, roads and railways, as well as the construction of the Atlantic Falls and the West Bank.

    Several NGOs came to Germany. One of these was the Winterhilfswerk des Deutschen Volkes (Winter Aid), a charity that brought together food, money and clothes for the needy. The slogan sounded: “No one should starve or freeze” and in 1939, this organization had 1 million volunteer members. That year, a total of 419 million rich fields were collected, with a large part of the money also coming from slightly richer Germans. One of the purposes of the Winter Aid was to “strengthen the social and national sense of the German people”. The winter aid payments also confirm that Jews were allowed to live and work in Germany as long as they did not act hostile to the state or the people. Sven Eriksson writes in his writing the community’s pre-eminence (data were taken from Lyoka Rosberg’s A People Building) as follows: “1933/1934, 14 053 persons of non-German nationality were helped by the Winter Aid Action, including 8791 domestic and 2250 foreign Jews.

    A common picture in Germany during this time.

    In 1936, the summer Olympics were held in Berlin, where Swedish Sven Hedin held the opening ceremony. The OS became a great triumph for Germany, winning by far the most number of medals (of all denominations) in total. Today’s OS traditions, such as the Olympic Fire, also come from the Berlin Olympic Games. According to the historians of Bonniers, Hitler has refused to hand out medals to or congratulate black striker Jesse Owens from the United States, as by his victories, he “broken the myth of Aryan superiority”. Hitler did not congratulate anyone else either after being told by the IOC that it was not allowed. On the other hand, Hitler waved up to Jesse Owens, which Owens also writes himself in his memoirs:

    As I passed the National Chancellor, he rose, waved his hand to me, and I waved back. I think the writers showed poor judgment in criticizing Germany’s leaders at the time.

    During the first six years of the national socialists, the man revoked the Versailles Treaty and declared it invalid. The Versailles Treaty was determined after the First World War by France, the United States and Britain to keep Germany down. According to this treaty, Germany was responsible for the entire war and was obliged to pay a huge war damage of 269 billion golds (which was later reduced to 132 billion golds). With the help of the treaty, victory forces stole German territories and forbade Germany from having their own defence. Germany was also forced to recognize Austria’s independence.

    On March 12, 1938, German troops arrived in Austria and met with great jubilation. The Annunciation had occurred because the Catholic right-wing dictator Dollfuss-Schuschnigg pursued political opponents, pursued electoral fraud, and had created a catastrophic economic situation that greatly affected the Austrians. It was mainly due to the desire of Austria to belong to Germany. This proved a month later in an All-American election, with an overwhelming majority, 99.7 percent, voted in favour of Austria’s transposition into the Great-German Empire.

    Hitler speaks before 200,000 listeners in Heldenplatz in Vienna.

    By this act, Germany had rejected the Versailles Treaty. Different forces, which for common or different reasons would fight the Germans, now gathered for a new great war.

    The Second World War

    The city of Danzig, with a German population of more than 90 percent, had been given to Poland at the Versailles peace. Formally, the city was a “sanctuary” under the patronage of the League of Nations, but the city belonged to De facto Poland. During the spring and summer of 1939 negotiations were ongoing, which meant that, through the construction of a motorway, an “air gap” between Germany and Danzig would be opened and the German population of the city would be protected by legislation. Due to British and French guarantees to the Polish Government, all German negotiating requirements were rejected.

    On September 1, 1939, disputes between German and Polish troops began and the war was a fact. France and Great Britain declared Germany war a few days later. Poland was quickly conquered by the German troops and capitulated on 6 October 1939. Hitler would already offer France and Britain peace in September 1939. This peace appeal to the English government would be repeated a large number of times during the war. Hitler regarded the British as an embroiderer and never wished war with the country. When Winston Churchill came to power in England, these peacekeepers would never even be considered. Churchill was a former German hater and regarded Germany as a major threat to the British world dominance.

    On April 6th, the start of Operation Weserübung, the invasion of Norway and Denmark, came as a response to mainly British expansion plans in the north. Battles in Norway continued until June 10, 1940. The German forces opened a second front against the enemy on May 22 when they attacked France. The French Army and the British expedition were broken quickly and France applied for peace on June 16th. Hitler decided that peace talks would be held in the Compiègneskogen, in the same train car, where German negotiators were forced to sign the 1918 demeaning peace agreement.

    The French Capitulation.

    A German expedition head under General Erwin Rommel arrived in Africa in February 1941 to help his hard-hitting Italian arms brothers. Thanks to the German reinforcements, the British could drive a long retreat. Due to Italian failures in their war with Greece, Hitler had to return to Italy’s aid. German troops defeated Greece and the country-wide British quite easily. At the same time as the campaign against Greece began, a British-based military regime in Yugoslavia was overthrown. SS captain Fritz Klingenberg and ten soldiers entered the Yugoslav capital Belgrade on April 12, 1941. Yugoslavia surrendered less than a week later.

    On June 22, 1941, the world’s largest field train began when the German warfare began Operation Barbarossa, the invasion of the Soviet Union. The German gangs advanced at a rapid pace on all fronts and extracted very large amounts of Soviet ties. Already in the fall of 1941 stood at the gates of Moscow. Thanks to the great strengthening of Asian troops, the Soviet Union could hold back the German troops and even go to the offensive. In December 1941, after the Japanese War Initiation with the United States, Germany also declared war against the United States.

    To the German summer offensive in 1942, Hitler’s plans had changed. The goal of this offensive was not to take Moscow without the important Russian oil fields in the Caucasus. During the summer, the city of Stalingrad reached a very hard battle. Here, the German troops would suffer their first major defeat when the traitor Friedrich Paul surrendered with the entire German 6th arm.

    After the defeat in Stalingrad, the German leadership considered that there was no reason to try to smooth the failure. On the contrary, one would speak plainly to the German people. Germany’s propaganda minister, Goebbels, held on February 18, 1943, his famous talk of the total war calling on the people to fight for the last blood drop.

    Great British gains were reached during the summer of North Africa and during the fall, they could go to offensive. A major battle at El Alamein was fought where Erwin Rommel was forced to retreat by the great hostile superpower. American troops also landed in the French possessions in North Africa. After the treacherous surrender of Stalingrad, the German army went to counteroffensive in February 1943. This offensive ended with the destruction of about 50 Soviet divisions and the readmission of the city of Charkov in Ukraine.

    In one last attempt to take back the initiative on the eastern front, Hitler decided to implement a plan which, if successful, could have destroyed very large Soviet troop forces. Because of several reasons, the Soviet superintendent learned about the German plans, why the Soviet forces were well prepared when the attack came on July 5, 1943. Despite this, the German forces could advance and caused many enemies to suffer more losses than they suffered. The turning point came on July 11, when the Soviet invaded a massive counterattack while the military forces had landed in Italy at the same time. Since the German troops in Africa had to retire to Italy, the troops in the summer of 1943 landed on the Italian mainland. Italy surrendered shortly and formally joined the Allies.

    The Soviet summer offensive in 1944, the most highly manned German divisions on the eastern front, became more or less resolved. The offensive could only be temporarily suspended at the German border. Virtually all conquered territory to the east was lost. The roadside landslides roughly simultaneously in France and now Germany’s situation began to look serious. At home, a group of aristocratic officers tried to make a coup. On July 20, 1944, the coup makers placed a bomb in Hitler’s headquarters. Hitler survived the explosion miraculously and the coup failed.

    Holocaust

    In 1942 the “Holocaust” began. The concept of the “Holocaust” is based on the idea that the National Socialist Germany, on Adolf Hitler’s orders, killed about six million Jews, mainly using “gas chambers”. After the end of the war in 1945, the idea of what has happened emerged in varied dramatic descriptions, spread by the victory forces. Today, the one who questions the official version of the so-called Holocaust can be sentenced to prison in dozens of European countries. For example, an Austrian court sentenced the British historian David Irving to three years imprisonment for “denying the Holocaust of European Jews,” a Spanish court bookdealer Pedro Varela for two years and nine months to have marketed books as “justified genocide”, German court lawyer Horst Mahler to six years in prison for spreading the book Lectures on the Holocaust and more.

    Historian David Irving is one of many who have been subjected to political persecution to question the official version of the Holocaust.

    The question of the Holocaust is or is not sensitive because there is no actual evidence that millions of Jews and others were systematically executed in the camps, but the camps died of diseases such as typhoid and some hundreds of thousands.

    Already in 1938, Hitler and other leading people in the Third Reich worked with the Madagascar plan. This meant giving the Jews in Europe Madagascar, then in French possession, by moving one million Jews annually. This plan was stopped by Britain when they crossed Madagascar in 1942. The same year, the discussed Wannsee conference in Germany, where the “final solution” of the Jewish issue was discussed. The documents from this conference remain and show that this final solution meant an emigration of the Jews to the east and that the established camps would act as an alternative evacuation plan. One month after the conference, Franz Rademacher sent the Ministry of Foreign Affairs the following instruction to the UD:

    The war with the Soviet Union has in the meanwhile created the opportunity for disposal over other areas for the final solution. Therefore, the führern has decided that the Jews need not be moved to Madagascar without the east. Madagascar therefore no longer has to speak in connection with the final solution.

    The longest evidence that the Holocaust took place is the first letter to mention gas chambers in the KZ camps, the Vrba-Wetzler report. When one of the people behind the report, fraudster Rudolf Vrba, crossed in connection with a trial in 1985, he acknowledged that he had never seen a gas chamber in Auschwitz without actually telling what he had heard of others and “putting together a story”. The “acknowledgements” that came from prison guards at KZ camps have been caused by torture, as in the case of Rudolf Höss. In addition, the German government regularly reviewed possible misconduct in the camps, which resulted in the SS Commander Karl Otto Koch being executed by a German supreme court of execution. Koch had been guilty of two murders in the hospital wards and suspected of the murder of prisoners during a fought flight attempt. Such misunderstandings were enough for high SS officers like Koch to be executed, but at the same time, they would have systematically killed six million Jews in the camps?

    The end

    The last Soviet offensive against the German Reich began in spring 1945, quickly advanced and soon stood in Berlin’s outskirts. The few remaining German troops fought bravely, but nothing was done with the huge army. With Soviet troops literally at the knot, Adolf Hitler married April 29, 1945, with his long-lasting love Eva Braun.
