- WORLDWIDE EXCLUSIVE BASED ON RECORDS RECENTLY RELEASED
- Secret documents recently released by the British Records
Office at Kew in London reveal the stark horror of ritual executions of
German POWS carried out by British, American and Jewish torturers, assisted
incredibly by certified doctors. Here is a story that will shock the world.
- GERMANY HONOURED ITS FOES
- The stark contrast between the Axis and Allied treatment
of prisoners of war is only now being revealed. Typically, in September
1939 after the speedy success of the German-Polish campaign, captured Polish
generals and officers, as well as those of other ranks, were treated according
to convention and even chivalrously. There are no records of their being
abused or maltreated by their German captors.
- Acclaimed historians such as A.J.P Taylor, as far as
permitted, resisted political interference in the accurate recording of
events. The late professor conceded that the German attack on Poland was
in response to British-backed Polish aggression to which Czechoslovakia
was already a victim. Since the Polish occupation of Czechoslovakia Germany
too suffered repeated Polish attacks on its borders and the occupation
of its territory.
- Matters were finally brought to a head by Polish Foreign
Minister Beckís inflexibility over the Danzig question as well as
daily revelations of murderous atrocities committed against German nationals
in Polish occupied territories.
- HITLER PAYS HIS RESPECTS
- Having secured German borders Adolf Hitler paid a personal
visit to the tomb of Marshall Pilsudski, the renowned Polish President.
Bareheaded and with military cap in hand he paid silent respect for several
minutes. In 1940 after the fall of France the German leader made a similar
chivalrous gesture when visiting the tomb of his predecessor Napoleon Bonaparte.
- During the occupation members of the former French government
were left in peace and were never molested by the German authorities. An
honourable peace agreement had been signed with the lawful government of
France at the beautiful spa town of Vichy.
- Throughout occupied France life went on as normal. William
L. Shirer the Jewish journalist and author of The Rise and Fall of the
Third Reich, though notorious for putting a Jewish spin on the Third Reich,
accepted that "The Parisians actually believed the Germans would rape
the women and do worse to the men ... the ones who stayed are all the more
amazed at the very correct behavior of the troops."
- German soldiers undeniably behaved in a correct and courteous
manner towards the French populace. Any violations of this code were severely
punished by court martial. As a remarkable further gesture of reconciliation
Adolf Hitler ordered that the remains of Napoleonís son, the ill-fated
Napoleon 11, be removed from its burial chamber in Vienna and re-interred
at Les Invalides in Paris. It is difficult to imagine a more conciliatory
and generous act of placation being placed before the French people.
- BRITISH FAKE VICTORY PHOTOGRAPHS
- Professor David Dilks giving a lecture at Leeds University
disclosed "that the British version of the famous film in which Hitler
skips for joy at the defeat of France was doctored by us (the British)
for propaganda purposes". He also revealed that "Hitlerís
tread that day was in fact remarkably sober." - Sunday Telegraph,
- Those attending this lecture, ëChamberlain, Churchill
and the Fall of Franceí included Lord Boyle, former Financial Secretary
to the Treasury and Mrs. Stephen Lloyd, daughter of former Prime Minister
- Good relations continued until the Soviet Unionís
entry in to the war 1941. It was then that the French Communist Party,
in cohort with the French runaway renegade, General deGaulle who with Winston
Churchill took the war to the German occupiers by planning acts of terrorism;
sabotage, assassination and murder.
- Members of Britainís special forces were parachuted
in or dropped off along Franceís extensive coastline. Once ashore
atrocities were committed against German troops and their civilian administrators,
and then evidence was left to suggest local rebellious guilt. The purpose
was to goad the Germans into reprisals that would then ignite the inconveniently
complacent population. The Germans assisted by the French authorities,
did resort to vigorous counter measures.
- VIOLETTE SZABO WAS NEVER TORTURED - OFFICIAL
- One such agent was the Anglo-French woman, Violette Szabo.
Recruited as an agent she made several drops into occupied France and with
others brought about considerable destruction and loss of life. Twice she
was captured and twice she escaped. On a third occasion, holed up with
others, she killed several German soldiers before being captured. She was
shot ñ according to convention ñ in the winter of 1944-1945.
- Szabo was never tortured as has been alleged. Claims
that the Gestapo routinely tortured captives are so wide of the mark that
incidences of maltreatment had to be made-up. The most infamous of these
frauds related to the captured Violette Szabo which were later repeated
in the film (Carve Her Name With Pride), books and of course various websites.
- Her fellow prisoners, Captain Peuleve and Wing Commander
Yeo-Thomas G.C., both of whom were interrogated and imprisoned with Szabo
stated unequivocally that Szabo was never maltreated by the Germans.
- "The torture claims made by her researcher Mr. Minney
caused Captain Peuleve much embarrassment. He had wrongly and without his
knowledge been named as the sole source of evidence for the torture allegations
in the posthumous George Cross citation awarded to Szabo." - Sunday
Times 4th April 1965.
- THE WORLDíS FIRST FULL SCALE RACE WAR
- US Commander-in-Chief Ge-neral Dwight D. Eisenhower who
took personal responsi-bility for ensuring the des-truction of the German
people was also of Jewish descent.
- Through the early period of the war an unspoken understanding
and shared chivalry existed between the British and German air forces -
until May 1940. Then Winston Churchill, by cajolery and trickery succeeded
in ousting influential government ministers who regarded him as a warmonger
and favored honorable peace negotiations with Germany. Consequently British
attitudes rapidly deteriorated as the ëphony warí rapidly turned
into the total war for which Churchill had long plotted. Americaís
President Roosevelt had by this time assured him of the material support
of the United States.
- From this point on the military war against Germany turned
into the worldís first war of racial genocide; a war that had one
purpose; to totally destroy Germany as a nation and to decimate beyond
recovery the German people. Their nation had been handed a death sentence
and the consequences would cost millions of lives.
- It was a war in which prisoners of the allies would be
taken only reluctantly. Those captured would be slaughtered; others enslaved,
deported, worked to death or subjected to mortal deprivation. Simultaneously
the allies prepared for an unprecedented air war that would incinerate
Germanyís civilian population in their homes.
- Virtually all Germanyís adversaries were of non-European
stock. Roosevelt was of Dutch-Jewish ancestry and surrounded himself with
Americaís most powerful Jewish figures, many of them prominent in
- Winston Churchill though not Jewish was the offspring
of an American ësociety familyí and was proud of his Iroquois
Red Indian blood. He detested and feared Europe and felt belittled by its
culture. He is also on record as saying: "I am a Zionist." One
of his first acts on seizing power (Churchill was unelected) was to halt
all intelligence gathering on Soviet suspects, which led to the wholesale
infiltration of MI5 and MI6.
- US Commander-in-Chief General Dwight D. Eisenhower who
took personal responsibility for ensuring the destruction of the German
people was also of Jewish descent. The eminent anthropologist Arnold Leece
described as ësheer nauseating nonsenseí his message of goodwill
to the sinister Jewish lobby group Bínai Bírith.
- "Our primary purpose," Eisenhower later told
war journalist J. Kingsley Smith "Is the destruction of as many Germans
as possible. I expect to destroy every German west of the Rhine and within
that area in which we are attacking." - General Eisenhower. J. Kingsley
Smith (INS) Paris. February, 24th, 1945.
- BLOOD-SOAKED DICTATORS
- On the eve of the Jewish New Year Eisenhower issued this
message: "Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year, is significant to every
American, in the deepest spiritual sense, we are all the seed of Abraham
- The Soviet dictator, the blood-soaked Georgian Joseph
Stalin, whose racial origins are far from European, also surrounded himself
by Jews, which included his father-in-law. Yiddish was the language used
habitually by his family.
- Against this formidable international array holding stupendous
world power stood a revitalized Christian and financially independent Germany
with its European Axis partners.
- Roosevelt at this time was about to plunge the unwilling
and deceived American people into war with Japan and soon afterwards Germany.
Despite Americaís so-called neutrality its warships had already
been given the nod to sink German shipping and betray German shipping movements
to Britainís armed forces.
- Britain in the meanwhile, again in defiance of international
law, had initiated the cold-blooded deliberate bombing of civilian targets.
This understandably provoked retaliatory German raids on Britainís
cities. The ruse gave the British warlord two advantages. It weakened Germanyís
defensive capabilities (Russia was mobilizing to attack Germany) and it
brought about a total war psychosis in the beleaguered English populations.
It ended reluctance for his war against Hitlerís Germany. The ultimate
fate of Britain and Europe, indeed the world was about to be sealed.
- As the war neared its conclusion in 1944 and Germany
and its Axis partners fought against overwhelming odds, the principle instigators
of the near destruction of western civilization relished their moment.
Winston Churchill, often drunk, attended conferences at Tehran and Yalta
to conspire in the dismemberment and looting of central Europe and the
removal of Germany as a trade competitor.
- Attending the conferences were the worldís most
evil men including Josef Stalin and of course Roosevelt and his henchmen.
Between these malevolent conspirators representing the Capitalist and Communist
facade of world Jewry, all of prostrated Europe lay at their mercy. There
was to be no mercy and no compassion.
- NO MERCY FOR EUROPE
- Never in the history of mankind have the northern hemisphereís
multi-national populations had their fate decided by so few. Tragically
among those manic few were men who already held humanityís chilling
record for race genocide - and the worst was yet to come.
- In 1943 at the Tehran Conference Stalin with cold-blooded
effrontery, among other diabolical schemes, proposed that following the
Allied victory 50,000 German officers were to be randomly selected and
- The Soviet dictator had already executed virtually all
of his own Red Army general staff in 1937 so the casual liquidation of
tens of thousands of German officers posed no particular problem for him.
- Winston Churchill balked at the proposal but not because
he was opposed to the scale of the unfolding atrocities. He had already
covered up the Soviet Unionís wholesale slaughter of 14,500 Polish
Army officers at Katyn and elsewhere. He had by then turned a blind eye
to the deportation and partial liquidation of 1.7 million Poles under Soviet
jurisdiction. Nor was his reluctance due to the fact that the proposed
atrocity was a gross violation of international law. He demurred simply
because even the British people, despite years of poisonous anti-German
propaganda, would be repelled at being dragooned into assisting the Soviet
Unionís genocidal killing machine.
- US Admiral Daniel Leahy was angry: "I felt sorry
for the German people. We were planning - and we had the force to carry
out our plans - to obliterate a one mighty nation."
- MASS KILLINGS WITHOUT TRIAL
- Churchill favored instead the immediate mass shooting,
without trial, of the 100 most influential leaders of the German nation.
Sham trials would be arranged for the rest so that Stalin would get what
he wanted and the British warlord would keep his bogus respectability.
- The European-wide killing machines were already being
set up. These included military tribunals and mock judicial trials later
to be damned as kangaroo courts by thousands of jurists, ecclesiastics,
military leaders, politicians, diplomats and writers throughout the world
- These courts were given a judicial veneer to add spurious
legitimacy to the wholesale slaughter of the defeated nationís military
personnel. The outcome was that Stalin got his 50,000 corpses ñ
and more, whilst Winston Churchill was able to distance himself from implication
in Soviet-style mass murder without trial.
- TENS OF THOUSAND POWS MURDERED
- The number of captive German soldiers, National Socialist
and civilian functionaries summarily killed or tortured to death from the
warís end and through the 1950s runs into tens of thousands. One
of the biggest mass slaughter machines ever created was cranked up to liquidate
20% of the people of the defeated German nation, but there was capacity
and desire to increase this dreadful quota.
- Henry Morgenthau US Secretary of the Treasury and Robert
Vansittart, the US London-based Diplomatic Advisor in 1940 along with other
prominent Jews demanded the genocide of the German people. Theodore Nathan
Kaufman, another of Americaís most influential Jews also insisted
on the end of the German peoples existence. He demanded the forced sterilization
of all people of German stock and demanded that the German nation be divided
between the conquerors. He calculated a period of two generations to achieve
- Much of these plans were in fact carried out. Germanyís
population was decimated and one third of its historical lands are even
now occupied by satellite states.
- The Soviet Union within months of the warís end
kidnapped an estimated 5,000,000 people. Mostly but not exclusively they
were members of the German armed forces. Their destination, the notorious
Gulag Archipelago chain of slave camps through the Siberian hinterland.
- GERMANY PERISHES
- The United States, France and Britain were directly and
indirectly responsible for deaths far exceeding these dreadful figures.
The official figure of 3.5 million German dead is completely bogus. Even
Churchill who was unlikely to exaggerate such figures stated: "I am
not alarmed by the reduction of the population. Six million Germans have
lost their lives in the war. We can expect that by the end of the war many
more will be killed, and then there will be room for those expelled"
(ethnically cleansed from their original homelands) ñ Voice of History
1944-1945. Speeches and Papers of Roosevelt, Churchill, Stalin, Chiang,
Hitler and Other Leaders, p 615.
- To Churchillís figures can be added an estimated
13,000,000 ñ 15,000,000 German people who were liquidated by various
means - after the warís end. Approximately 20 million central Europeans,
members of one of the most gifted Christian nations on earth had lost their
lives by the early 1950s. All had perished at the hands of the victor nations
who almost to a man took their instruction from those who were neither
European by race nor Christian by faith.
- (British dead including civilians is placed at 264,000.
For every Briton who died 80 Germans died).
- With tens of millions of displaced people wandering aimlessly
across central Europe it was left to the ravages of nature, principally
typhoid, starvation and a destroyed infrastructure to 'cull' the surviving
German population. All means of survival were blocked at the defeated countryís
borders to assist nature in 'taking its course'. Corpses littered the highways
and byways, towns and cities of the German nation. What Stalin had brought
to the Ukraine he brought to central Europe, with the assistance of Churchill
- GUARDS AMUSE THEMSELVES BY SHOOTING PRISONERS
- In the vast holding camps of General Eisenhower it is
estimated that 740,000 German POWS died from malnutrition, disease and
maltreatment. This included casual murder on a horrifying scale. One ex-guard
described how some of the other guards would amuse themselves by placing
food outside the camp parameters, and then shoot dead those POWS who were
sufficiently foolhardy to take their chances.
- Five million members of Germanyís armed forces
had already been spirited away to the slave camps of the USSR. Millions
more fetched up in camps across Europe, America and Canada. The French
post war army took charge of nearly one million prisoners from the Americans
for use as slave labour euphemistically called ëreparationsí.
Even Rome at its most decadent had stopped short of carnage and slavery
on such a monstrous scale. Of these postwar prisoners such were the conditions
they were held in that 250,000 of them died in the most distressing of
circumstances. Britain laid claim to 460,000 German slaves who were kept
until 1948 when the International Red Cross insisted upon their release.
- Most were soldiers of the Wehrmacht who had laid down
their arms in May 1945 but scores of thousands were civilians including
women, elderly people; even children. Most of these appalling deaths were
listed as 'other losses' or 'Perdu Pour Paisons Diverses'. James Bacque
in his book, 'Other Losses' has established the truth about these and other
atrocities beyond all doubt.
- THE FIRST GENOCIDAL RACE WAR WAS JEWISH
- The first war in which race was the killing factor rather
than by unfortunate circumstance, as with the Native American and Australian
aboriginal populations, was Jewish. Its victims white European and Christian.
- The evidence suggests that the killing frenzy of Americaís
Jews was motivated by the desire to kill hundreds of thousands of innocent
people, not for any crime they had committed, but simply on the grounds
that they were of different race to themselves.
- In Washington DC as the Second World War came to its
bitter end with the ëunconditional surrenderí of Germany imminent,
a bitter policy dispute arose between Henry Morgenthau and the then Secretary
of State Henry Stinson.
- Morgenthau by this time proposed the execution (without
trial) of all members of the German National Socialist Party. Such was
the Jewish desire for the spilling of German blood. Only when he learned
that there were 15,000,000 NSDAP cardholding Germans was he forced to modify
his demands. Stinson held his ground in favour of legally processing individual
Germans ñ which was in itself without precedent and illegal ñ
but he was on the losing side for several months.
- Meantime the killing machine in Germany ground on. It
was only when Morgenthauís plan to exterminate the German people
leaked out to the American Press, which was not entirely Jewish controlled,
that Stinsonís view prevailed.
- Field Marshall Bernard Montgomery, the British military
chief at the time derisively described the planned trials of Germanyís
political and military leaders as ëvictors justice.í They were
a mockery of real justice. In planning such ëwar crimes trialsí,
a dictum of Clausewitz was applied: ëThe pursuit of political aims
by other means.í
- THE ALLIES QUASI-LEGAL ABATTOIRS
- The entire quasi-legal process reeked of hypocrisy and
double standards. The chief Soviet ëjuristí at the Nuremberg
Trials was none other than the malevolent Andrej Vyshinsky, the chief prosecutor
at Stalinís 1930s show trials. Those sham trials had horrified the
world before the Soviet dictator became ëGood old uncle Joe (Stalin)í.
Victims of those ëtrialsí included hapless British engineers
who had been enlisted to work in Russia only to be abandoned when later
condemned as ëimperialist spies.í
- Stalinís show trials served as a prototype for
the military tribunals and Nuremberg ëtrialsí then being set
up. These kangaroo courts excluded a defense, relied on evidence obtained
through torture and made up laws as they went along.
- The wickedness of these trials haunted the British Chief
Prosecutor, Sir. Hartley Shawcross, for the rest of his life. He was often
heard to declare that he "often inwardly wished that the great allied
war criminals, Stalin, Churchill and FDR (Roosevelt) could also be put
on trial" Muttering under his breath that the war with Germany had
been unnecessary and a terrible mistake leading to Britainís downfall.
Sir Hartley freely and publicly admitted the ghastly mistake but by then
it was far too late.
- THE WISE TOOK THEIR OWN LIVES
- In stark contrast to Germany generosity accorded to leaders
and governments of countries occupied by the Reich, Germanyís captured
leaders suffered as few other captives have in history. All civilized standards
were excluded as Asiatic bloodlust for the victors ërightsí
took hold. The ëlucky prisonersí were those who before capture
took their own lives and those of their loved ones.
- As the German leaders were rounded up they were fed into
a manic process of humiliation, torture and death. On being seized they
were placed in manacles and placed under armed guard. They were then stripped
of their uniforms, even in freezing conditions and their decorations and
insignia were torn away from them. They were then unceremoniously placed
in unheated cells.
- In these cells bright lights burned all night and with
guards watching over them they were even forbidden to change their sleeping
posture. In fact it was common procedure to keep the prisoners awake as
a form of torture.
- Beatings up were commonplace and typical was the statement
proffered by Ken Jones of Wrexham, Wales. This former private with the
Fifth Royal Horse Artillery had been stationed at Heidi in Schleswig Holstein.
He described the standard procedure when Rudolf Hoss "whom the Dutch
hadnít been able to break" was brought in to be prepared for
- PREPARED FOR INTERROGATION
- Two other soldiers were detailed with Mr. Jones to join
Rudolf Hoss in the cell to help break him down for interrogation. "We
sat in the cell with him night and day, armed with axe handles. Our job
was to prod him every time he fell asleep to help break down his resistance."
bragged the former private.
- "When Hoss was taken out for exercise he was made
to wear only jeans and a thin cotton shirt in the bitter cold. The prisoner
was simultaneously being starved. After three days and nights without sleep
Hoss finally broke down and made a full confession to the authorities."
Jones concluded. ñ Wrexham Leader, October 17, 1986.
- Rudolf Hoss was afterwards charged with murdering 2,500,000
Jews, which has since been derided as ludicrous.
- Just as typical (thousands of times over) was the torture
and murder of Dr. M.M Rost van Tonningen, former High Commissioner for
the League of Nations in Vienna and President of the Bank of the Netherlands.
- As a prisoner of the allies he was eventually transferred
to Scheveningen prison. The term transferred is best considered a laundered
expression. On his arrival at the prison he was physically thrown from
the vehicle. As his legs had already been tied to a pole and he couldnít
bend them sufficiently to recover his balance he fell to the ground, much
to the amusement of his baiters. He was then beaten with poles and told
that he would never leave the prison alive. He didnít.
- PERVERTED SEXUAL BRUTALITY
- From there on his daily routine was a cycle of maltreatment
and humiliation which included his being stripped naked and paraded with
a line attached to his penis as a bull is baited by pulling the ring through
its nose. Such were the horrifying conditions of the hellhole of Scheveningen
prison; such were the screams emanating from the prison, that even the
local police felt it necessary to intervene.
- The brutality persisted and finally the son of the Commander
in Chief of the Netherlands Indian Army was beaten to death with a rifle
butt, his lifeless body was then hurled over the prison balustrade. Years
later his adored wife, Florentine gave an interview to the Netherlands
- "Everybody thinks my husband committed suicide,
which is not true. I did not even get a death certificate. So I contacted
the sanitation service since it was they who had carted his body to the
cemetery. On the way I learned which cemetery it was, so I looked up the
director. I was told that I couldnít be told anything it was all
too secret. But they led me to the area where the graves of the poor where
and pointed out to me a mass grave in which my husband was said to rest.
Then I went to the hospital and there I learned, my husband had been tortured
so horribly, the body couldnít possibly be shown to the public."
ñ Deutsche Nationalzeitung, July 27 1979.
- It should be stressed that these were not isolated incidents
and were typical of the treatment meted out to many thousands of prisoners
of all ranks by the victorious allied armies.
- WOMEN AND CHILDREN BRUTALIZED
- Even the wives and children of prisoners were not spared
and although perfectly innocent they were imprisoned, insulted and abused
over long periods of time. A case in point being the wife of Alfred Rosenberg
the esteemed National Socialist philosopher and author (The Myth of the
Twentieth Century) and his pretty teenage daughter.
- No family members were allowed to visit the accused though
one or two exceptions were surreptitiously made. Never since the English
king, after his victory over the French at Agincourt, had personally slit
the throats of the captured nobles of France, had such acts of horror been
- With fabricated ëretrogressive lawsí ñ
laws that were invented for the obscene quasi-judicial proceedings, various
German ranks were accused of planning and carrying out acts of ëaggressive
war.í against other countries. The most eminent non-German historians
and commentators have since refuted these charges.
- Released Soviet archive material has since confirmed
the German Reichís claims that Stalinís Red Army was poised
to attack Western Europe and that Hitlerís reaction was pre-emptive.
It is equally now well known that the attack on Poland and France were
equally pre-emptive as both of these countries, backed and goaded by Britain,
had first declared war on Germany by carrying out acts of war against Germany.
France had formally declared war against her peaceful neighbor on September
- "CYNICAL AND REVOLTING"
- The German leaders were also falsely accused of having
carried out deliberate acts of genocide, an allegation, which has beaten
a retreat since the 1950s. Today it finally stands exposed as "The
Hoax of the 20th Century"; bogus blackmail to keep Germany in the
thrall of a never ending cycle of slavery and national masochism devoted
to paying out endless ëreparationsí to Israel.
- Of the Nuremberg ëtrialsí Lord Hankey spoke
for thousands of others of similar standing who similarly expressed themselves:
"There was something cynical and revolting in the spectacle of British,
French and American judges sitting on the bench with a colleague representing
a country which before, during, and since the trials, had perpetrated half
the political crimes in the calendar." - Lord Hankey, House of Lords,
May, 5th, 1949.
- These show trials were not international at all; just
a few of the victor nations were responsible for them; neutral countries
representatives were excluded. Even the US Supreme Court washed its hands
of any responsibility for them
- Before, during and after these ëtrialsí torture
of German and other POWs was routine: At the Dachau US Military Tribunals,
interrogators posed as priests to extract confessions. The American judge,
Edward L. Van Roden, one of the three members of an American Army Commission
set up to investigate claims of maltreatment found:
- TORTURE OF PRISONERS
- "Posturing as priests to hear confessions and give
absolution; torture with burning matches driven under the prisoners' fingernails;
knocking out of teeth and breaking jaws; solitary confinement and near-starvation
rations. The statements which were admitted as evidence were obtained from
men who had first been kept in solitary confinement for three, four, and
five months.... the investigators would put a black hood over the head
of the accused and then punch him in the face with brass knuckles, kick
him and beat him with rubber hoses. All but two of the Germans, in the
139 cases investigated, had been kicked in the testicles beyond repair.
This was standard operation procedure with our American investigators."
- THE NUREMBERG TRIAL JEWISH RITUAL MURDER
- Louis Marschalko, Special Correspondent; Playwright and
Poet affirmed: "Out of 3,000 people employed on the staff at the Nuremberg
Courts, 2,400 were Jews." Many of them wore uniforms to which they
had no entitlement.
- In the Nuremberg courtrooms crowded with exultant Jews
a torrent of lies, distortions and fake evidence, provided by bogus witness,
were hurled at the ill fated prisoners in the dock. The questioning of
witness or their allegations was denied. Each of the prisoners faces revealed
evidence of deliberately induced torture and lack of sleep. The verdicts
of their vengeful accusers were a foregone conclusion. Denied a proper
defense they were to be systematically killed.
- All retained their courage to stand up and confront their
accusers, vehemently denying the preposterous catalogue of outlandish allegations.
The defensive words of the prisoners were summarily dismissed and no appeals
- On the night of October 15th 1946 ñ the Jewish
Feast Day Hoshana Raba - the American News Service announced at 2.45am
that eleven members of the defeated but nevertheless legitimately elected
government of Germany had been executed.
- GLOATING OVER THE DEAD
- The executions had begun at 1.00am and ended at 2.15am.
The bodies were then laid out in rows for witnesses to inspect and gloat
over. However, of the eleven victims Reichsmarshall Herman Goering, the
First World War ace fighter pilot had succeeded in cheating his captors
by taking his own life in his cell.
- Details concerning the burial of the eleven martyrs to
Germany were kept secret; such was the enormity of the allied crime and
the sadistic way by which the wretched prisoners were slain. Furthermore,
even in death the victorious allies were mindful of the affection and example,
which the executed still held in German hearts. Even the victims families
were denied all knowledge of their loved ones final resting places.
- In advance of these judicial murders a spokesman for
the prison governor had maintained a running public commentary of sickening
bad taste on how Goering and the other victims had spent their last days
- The condemned men passed most of their time reading and
writing and talking with the two chaplains. Most seemed resigned to their
fate whilst Goering spoke of his faith and lack of fear. He had fearlessly
faced death many times but hitherto against honorable opponents.
- Two of the captives complained about the security regulations
requiring the prisoners to sleep with their hands placed outside the filthy
blankets. Such was the deliberate stringency of measures against suicide
attempts that they were awakened if in their sleep they turned away from
the brilliant spotlights shining on their prison beds.
- All the prisoners, manacled to guards, took exercise
in the corridors of the condemned block except for Goering who for several
days declined. When taken to see his wife for the last time he walked briskly
ahead and turning to the warder chained to him remarked with a smile: "You
see, I am still a Fuhrer (leader)."
- STRANGLED TO DEATH
- Julius Streicher, a man with a finer intellectual mind
than has been represented by his gloating Jewish captors and their Gentile
propagandists, remained defiant to the end, even hurling abuse at his tormentors.
He had held no official position in the government of Germany and throughout
the war was a simple farmer. He was hanged merely for exposing and defying
Jewish power. The official United States undertaker, who was present at
the executions, stated that: "The Jewish-American boy in charge of
the execution (of Streicher) let him strangle, horribly for a long, long
- Admiral Husband E. Kimmel, Commander-in-Chief of the
US Fleet shared the outrage of Americaís officer class: "The
war crimes trials were a reversion to the ancient practice of the savage
extermination of a defeated enemy and particularly its leaders."
- SICK SNUFF MOVIES
- At the time of these internationally condemned executions
of Germanyís defeated leaders, Sir. Anthony Eden, former British
Foreign Minister and leading Conservative rose to his feet in the House
of Commons and pointedly asked Clement Atlee, premier of the first postwar
Labour government, if as had been rumored a film of the executions had
been made. He asked if the government was taking any action to prevent
the public exhibition of such film footage.
- Atlee replied: "My attention has been called to
this report. It is inaccurate. The Allied Control Council, on which His
Majestyís Government is represented, decided last week that no cinematographic
film or photograph should be taken of the executions. Photographs of the
bodies will be taken after death by an official photographer as representative
of each of the four powers, record purposes."
- But was this true? Although it remains uncertain whether
an actual film of the killings was made, executions of Tojo and other Japanese
leaders were filmed by their American executioners and shown to the delight
of cheering American audiences. Excerpts from this footage were certainly
shown on British cinema newsreels.
- Edenís reasons for posing this question remain
unknown, but as a former First World War officer who had fought in the
trenches he may have felt pangs of guilt and self-loathing. He was also
known to be anti-Jewish, a sentiment he shared with Ernest Bevan the then
British Foreign Secretary who by then had registered his disgust to the
destruction of Germany and its frightful genocidal consequences.
