- Good Morning from the Zundelsite:
- The ZGram below is one that probably few people ever
forgot who read it on May 31, 1996 when I first sent it out. In the wake
of what Truman said about the cruelties of certain people in power who
care not at all about others, it certainly merits a repeat.
- Brace yourselves - it is not pleasant reading.
- Yet this is the kind of sadism I saw with my own eyes
as a child, and this is why so many of the World War II generation so bitterly
resent what is being claimed over and over about them.by their detractors.
There was unbelievable, truly satanic suffering in Europe in those years
- and much of it happened long after all shooting had stopped.
- Here is my ZGram I sent around the world more than seven
- Good Morning from the Zundelsite:
- May 31, 1996
- Some months ago Ernst asked me to do a report on Allied
atrocities during and after World War II, and toward that end, he sent
me some information, among them a book in German title, "Alliierte
Kriegsverbrechen" - Allied War Crimes.
- I started reading it and underlining certain passages,
but not for long-because I realized that I was getting nauseated. It was
a compilation of first-person testimony as to what happened when the Allies
(particularly the Red Army) started to carve up a prostrated and defeated
- I made several attempts to finish this assignment, but
I couldn't do it. I simply couldn't do it. Even now, I feel a moral obligation
to finish it, but even thinking about it makes my palms clammy and my heart
race. People in the West have simply no idea what went on in Europe after
the Allies began to push the Germans back - from 1943 on!
- I have given the material below a lot of thought as to
whether or not I should send it to my ZGram readers. It isn't pretty reading.
It was published recently in Der Freiwillige, June 1995, pages 10-11, under
the title In Their Terror All Were Alike, written (or edited) by Hans Koppe.
- ". . . Since the same old stories of war crimes
allegedly committed by the Germans are being parroted over and over again
in prayer-wheel fashion, particularly by the younger generations who are
too lazy (or deliberately unwilling) to obtain a real grasp of the subject
through the study of documents from the archives of our former enemies'
documents which are both accessible and irrefutable - we wish to call to
mind the following report which first appeared 30 years ago in the Deutschland
Journal of April 23, on p. 7 of issue 17.
- It is supplemented with the eyewitness report of an armoured
infantryman who recorded his impressions on March 7, 1995. P. 7, issue
17, April 23, 1965 (Deutschland-Journal). Report of the German-Brazilian
citizen Leonora Geier, nee Cavoa, born on October 22, 1925 in Sao Paulo,
Brazil. Before the expulsion she lived in Hirschberg, Bahnstrasse 8.
- Present at the writing of this report:
- Bernhard Wassmann, born on May 10, 1901, Bautzen, Senftenberger
- Reiner Halhammer, born on February 3, 1910, Bautzen,
- Manfred Haer, born on April 9, 1929, Gorlitz, A.Bebel-Strasse
- Kyrill Wratilavo, born on March 3, 1918, Bautzen, Karl-Marx-Strasse
- The witnesses present confirm that the aforementioned,
Leonora Geier, made this report without any coercion, threats or other
outside influence, motivated solely by the need to make the terrible events
of the time of the German Reich's collapse known to posterity since she
has received permission to emigrate to Brazil.
- The report was drawn up on October 6, 1955 and discusses
the events of February 16, 17 and 18 1945, which are already partially
known. At that time the witness was employed as typist in Camp "Vilmsee"
ofthe RAD), the Women's Labour Service. Being a Brazilian. she was considered
by the Russian Army to be an ally put to forced labour in the .service
of the National-Socialist state.
- These prerogatives were attested to by a document which
she presented here and which bears the rubber stamp of the First White
Russian Army. Since the present report disregards existing moral standards
and sexual taboos, it must under no circumstances be made available to
- All events are recounted in a plain, straight-forward
manner in order to document historical accuracy. Nothing has been added,
nothing was withheld.
- Bernhard Wassmann and Manfred Haer were members of the
Infantry Artillery and Training Company I. G. 81 and were assigned to rescue
operations in the aforementioned camp when the city of Neustettin was occupied
following the temporary retreat of the First White Russian Army:
- "On the morning of February 16 [19451 a Russian
division occupied the Reich Labour Service camp of Vilmsee in Neustettin.
The Commissar, who spoke German well, informed me that the camp was dissolved
and that, as we were a uniformed unit, we were to be transported immediately
to a collecting camp.
- Since 1, being a Brazilian, belonged to a nation on friendly
terms with the Allies, he entrusted me with the leadership of the transport
which went to Neustettin, into the yard of what used to be an iron foundry.
We were some 500 girls from the Women's Reich Labour Service.
- The Commissar was very polite to us and assigned us to
the foreign workers' barracks of the factory. But the allocated space was
too small for 11 of us, and so I went to speak to the Commissar about it.
- He said that it was, after all, only a temporary arrangement,
and offered that I could come to the typists' office if it was too crowded
for me, which I gladly accepted. He immediately warned me to avoid any
further contact with the others, as those were members of an illegal army.
My protests that this was not true were cut off with the remark that if
I ever said anything like that ever again, I would be shot.
- Suddenly I heard loud screams, and immediately two Red
Army soldiers brought in five girls. The commissar ordered them to undress.
When they refused out of modesty, he ordered me to do it to them, and for
all of us to follow him.
- We crossed the yard to the former works kitchen, which
had been completely cleared out except for a few tables on the window side.
It was terribly cold, and the poor girls shivered. In the large, tiled
room some Russians were waiting for us, making remarks that must have been
very obscene, judging from how everything they said drew gales of laughter.
- The Commissar told me to watch and learn how to turn
the Master Race into whimpering bits of misery. Now two Poles came in,
dressed only in trousers, and the girls cried out at their sight. They
quickly grabbed the first of the girls, and bent her backwards over the
edge of the table until her joints cracked. I was close to passing out
as one of them took his knife and, before the very eyes of the other girls,
cut off her right breast. He paused for a moment, then cut off the other
- I have never-heard anyone scream as desperately as that
girl. After this operation he drove his knife into her abdomen several
times, which again was accompanied by the cheers of the Russians.
- The next girl cried for mercy, but in vain, it even seemed
that the gruesome deed was done particularly slowly because she was especially
pretty. The other three had collapsed, they cried for their mothers and
begged for a quick death, but the same fate awaited them as well.
- The last of them was still almost a child, with barely
developed breasts. They literally tore the flesh off her ribs until the
white bones showed.
- Another five girls were brought in. They had been carefully
chosen this time. All of them were well-developed and pretty. When they
saw the bodies of their predecessors they began to cry and scream. Weakly,
they tried desperately to defend themselves, but it did them no good as
the Poles grew ever more cruel.
- They sliced the body of one of them open lengthwise and
poured in a can of machine oil, which they tried to light. A Russian shot
one of the other girls in the genitals before they cut off her breasts.
- Loud howls of approval began when someone brought a saw
from a tool chest. This was used to tear off the breasts of the other girls,
which soon caused the floor to be awash in blood. The Russians were in
a blood frenzy.
- More girls were being brought in continually. I saw these
grisly proceedings as through a red haze. Over and over again I heard the
terrible screams when the breasts were tortured, and the loud groans at
the mutilation of the genitals.
- When my knees buckled I was forced onto a chair. The
Commissar always made sure that I was watching, and when I had to throw
up they even paused in their tortures.
- One girl had not undressed completely, she may also have
been a little older than the others, who were around seventeen years of
age. They soaked her bra with oil and set it on fire, and while she screamed,
a thin iron rod was shoved into her vagina until it came out her navel.
- In the yard entire groups of girls were clubbed to death
after the prettiest of them had been selected for this torture. The air
was filled with the death cries of many hundreds of girls. But compared
to what happened in here, the beating to death outside was almost humane.
- It was a horrible fact that not one of the girls mutilated
here ever fainted. Each of them suffered mutilation fully conscious. In
their terror all of them were alike in their pleading; it was always the
same, the begging for mercy, the high-pitched scream when the breasts were
cut and the groans when the genitals were mutilated.
- The slaughter was interrupted several times to sweep
the blood out of the room and to clear away the bodies. That evening I
succumbed to a severe case of nervous fever. I do not remember anything
from that point on until I came to in a field hospital.
- German troops had temporarily recaptured Neustettin,
thus liberating us. As I learned later, some 2,000 girls who had been in
RAD, BDM and other camps nearby were murdered in the first three days of
- (signed) Mrs. Leonora Geier, nee Cavoa
- Copy of a handwritten report:
- "I read the account of an eyewitness, Mrs. Leonora
Geier. The bestiality she experienced, and described in her account, is
100% true and a typical reflection of the fantasies and exhortations of
the Soviet propagandist and chief ideologist Ilya Ehrenburg.
- This bestiality was a tactical measure intended to force
the German population to flee from the Eastern regions en masse, and was
the rule rather than the exception all the way over to the Oder River.
- What I myself witnessed:
- I was an armoured infantryman and had been trained on
the most modern German tank of those days, the Panther. Survivors from
tank crews were reassembled in the Reserves at Cottbus and kept ready for
- In mid January, 1945, we were transferred to Frankfurt
on the Oder River, into a school building. One morning we were issued infantry
weapons, guns, bazookas and submachine guns.
- The next day we were ordered to march to Neustettin.
We traveled the first 60 miles or so by lorry, and after that some 90 miles
per day in forced marches.
- We were to take over some tanks that were kept ready
for us in a forest west of Neustettin. After a march lasting two days and
nights, some ten crews reached the forest just before dawn.
- Two tanks were immediately readied for action and guarded
the approach roads while the other comrades, bone-weary, got a little sleep.
By noon all tanks, approximately 20, had been readied.
- Our orders were to set up a front-line and to recapture
villages and towns from the Russians. My platoon of three tanks attacked
a suburb that had a train station with a forecourt. After we destroyed
several anti-tank guns the Russians surrendered.
- More and more of them emerged from the houses. They were
gathered into the forecourt about 200 sat crowded closely together. Then
something unexpected happened.
- Several German women ran towards the Russians and stabbed
at them with cutlery forks and knives. It was our responsibility to protect
prisoners, and we could not permit this. But it was not until I fired a
submachine gun into the air that the women drew back, and cursed us for
presuming to protect these animals. They urged us to go into the houses
and take a look at what (the Russians) had done there.
- We did so, a few of us at a time, and we were totally
devastated. We had never seen anything like it utterly, unbelievably monstrous!
Naked, dead women lay in many of the rooms. Swastikas had been cut into
their abdomens, in some the intestines bulged out, breasts were cut up,
faces beaten to a pulp and swollen puffy.
- Others had been tied to the furniture by their hands
and feet, and massacred. A broomstick protruded from the vagina of one,
a besom from that of another, etc. To me, a young man of 24 years at that
time, it was a devastating sight, simply incomprehensible!
- Then the women told their story:
- The mothers had had to witness how their teen and twelve-year-old
daughters were raped by some 20 men; the daughters in turn saw their mothers
being raped, even their grandmothers.
- Women who tried to resist were brutally tortured to death.
There was no mercy. Many women were not local; they had come there from
other towns, fleeing from the Russians.
- They also told us of the fate of the girls from the RAD
whose barracks had been captured by the Russians. When the butchery of
the girls began, a few of them had been able to crawl underneath the barracks
and hide. At night they escaped, and told us what they knew. There were
three of them.
- The women and girls saw parts of what Mrs. Leonora Geier
described. The women we liberated were in a state almost impossible to
describe. They were overfatigued and their faces had a confused, vacant
look. Some were beyond speaking, ran up and down and moaned the same sentences
over and over again.
- Having seen the consequences of these bestial atrocities,
we were terribly agitated and determined to fight. We knew the war was
past winning; but it was our obligation and sacred duty to fight to the
last bullet . . ."
- Don't ask me why I do what I do for the Zundelsite. The
bestiality of World War II, caused largely by the Jew named Ilja Ehrenburg,
Stalin's main propagandist whose private papers and files were donated
by him to Israel before he died, and who whipped the Russian Army into
a frenzy of destruction, was worse than anything a sane mind can imagine
- and it is coming our way unless courageous men and women stop it.
