Hitler’s nazi killer police. Very disturbing, graphic. Be forewarned, yet it is necessarily to know what these nazis did.


On November 28, 1941, Hitler officially received al-Husseini in Berlin. Hitler made a declaration that after “…the last traces of the Jewish-Communist European hegemony had been obliterated… the German army would… gain the southern exit of Caucasus… the Führer would offer the Arab world his personal assurance that the hour of liberation had struck. Thereafter, Germany’s only remaining objective in the region would be limited to the Vernichtung des… Judentums [‘destruction of the Jewish element’, sometimes taken to be a euphemism for ‘annihilation of the Jews’] living under British protection in Arab lands..”[55] by Gerald-Fleming/dp/0520060229, reference 55, quoted.

Posen Speeches, wikipedia. Contains info. on Himmler’s many speeches on the Holocaust.


At Posen (occupied Poznań), hundreds of patients were killed by means of carbon monoxide gas in an improvised gas chamber developed by Dr Albert Widmann, chief chemist of the German Criminal Police (Kripo). In December 1939, the SS head, Heinrich Himmler, witnessed one of these gassings, ensuring that this invention would later be put to much wider uses.[49]]

New book, “Soldaten,” details crimes committed by Wehrmacht soldiers. In their own words, thanks to taped conversations made of them by the British military.
Dachau, Chief physician was von Weyherns. He tried in February biochemical means of detainees. For registration of the deaths were from 1 June set up a private storage registry office. Until then, the number of deaths was loud registry office of the city of Dachau on 3486 [26] people.
Dachau: In Block I, a biochemical research station was set up. Head was Emil Heinrich Schütz  (born April 12, 1906 in Schmiedeberg) was a German physician and participated in human experiments in the Nazi concentration camps.He survived the war unharmed and settled in 1947 in Essen as a specialist for internal medicine. Only in December 1972 he was before the District Court of Munich II (AZ 12 KS 1/72) accused because of his experiments. A number of “Persilscheine”, which he presented to his discharge, proved in the process convenience products. On November 20, 1975, he was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment. Doctors certified him a serious illness so that he had to not fulfill his sentence.
Dr. Ernst Heinrich Schmidt (March 27, 1912 – † November 28, 2000) was a German physician and SSHauptsturmführer, employed in a variety of Nazi concentration camps during World War II. He was tried in 1947 and 1975 for complicity in war crimes, but was acquitted both times.
note: I’m sorry for the sometimes poor quality of google transl. from German and other languages. However, I felt that it was impt to collect this information to prove conclusively that the Fed’l Republic of Germany, along with other gov’ts, failed to pursue nazi criminals to the fullest extent of the law. The escape of so many nazi doctors from justice, or the failure to prosecute them in the first place, is especially galling.
Hans Gustav Felber (born July 8, 1889 in Wiesbaden, Germany – March 8, 1962 in Frankfurt am Main) was a German General der Infanterie in the second world war.Alleged involvement in war crimes. The deportation of Polish Jews from the Lodz ghetto was ordered by Felber as then Chief of staff of the eighth army, before the command was issued by Reinhard Heydrich. This shows that the Wehrmacht was at an early stage leader involved in the persecution of Jews.The army group was responsible after the company Anton Felber of the defenses in the previously under the sole control of Vichy France. While Felbers troops were involved in the deportation of Jews from Marseille and the evacuation and destruction of the waterfront in January 1943.
Against Felber, a discovery method for breach of international law on hostage killings in Serbia was in 1949 initiated before the District Court of Frankfurt/M., which was not continued.

Mayr was particularly known as the man who introduced Hitler to politics.

Achim Gercke (August 3, 1902 – October 27, 1997) was a German politician.

Born in Greifswald, Gercke became a department head of the NSDAP in Munich on January 1, 1932. In April 1933, he was appointed to the Ministry of the Interior, where he served as an expert on racial matters.[1] In that year in a speech to a general audience, he stated that beside the task of maintaining one’s own blood as pure, there was the task of “extinction”, which would obey the great law of Nature to eliminate the bad and so be truly humane.[1]

Gercke devised the system of “racial prophylaxis”, forbidding the intermarriage between Jews and Aryans. As a student, he had attempted to develop a card index listing all Jews in Germany. His articles outlined Nazi public thinking on what to do about the Jews at the beginning of the Third Reich, which includes expelling them all from Germany. It notes that the just-issued Nuremburg Laws restricting Jews were provisional measures that indicated the direction future measures would take. He argued for a Jew being any person with one-sixteenth Jewish blood.[2]

When Gauleiter Rudolf Jordan claimed Reinhard Heydrich wasn’t Aryan, it was Gercke who investigated the issue and concluded that Heydrich was a pure Aryan. Gercke later served as an official in the post-war government of Adenauer. source: wikipedia bio.

to conceal the true purpose of the services. Between January and
August 1941, these 784 patients of the Eichberg and more 1.487 sick
from the local intermediate Institute were moved to Hadamar and killed
there. [7] According to own Mennecke has observed once the death of

of the institution and, formally after 1939, director of the Hessian

August 1939: Medical officer on the western front; commissioned by ***
IG Farben to conduct genetic research and experiments ***
February]  1940, Berlin: Attended meeting in the Reichskanzlei
[Chancellery of the Führer], where he learned that “unproductive”
psychiatric patients were to be systematically killed. Mennecke served
as a medical expert, visiting psychiatric institutions and registering
and selecting victims for the gas chamber. He inspected patients to
determine their fates.
1941: Promoted to medical specialist. Mennecke boasted to colleagues
that he was a member of physician panels that evaluated patient
registration forms to be sent to Berlin. He reported that he
witnessed, through a window, a gassing at Hadamar.
Spring 1941: Mennecke was assigned to the 14 f 13 operation,
“prisoners’ euthanasia,” where Polish, Jewish, Gypsy, and political
prisoners, as well as so-called Arbeitsscheue [“the work-shy”] and
criminals, were selected for killing. Mennecke began his work in
Sachsenhausen, Dachau, Ravensbrück, and Buchenwald concentration
camps. This followed the mass murder of the mentally and physically
disabled. His written “diagnoses” are among the most heinous texts
ever written by a German physician..· Mennecke considered using
electric shock therapy to kill patients. However, he became embroiled
in a dispute with *[name needed] his boss, a Nazi party official. As
punishment, he was demoted from his position of Ortsgruppenleiter, was
again drafted, and was then sent to a military hospital in Metz in
1943. He was briefly transferred to the eastern front, where, due to
panic attacks, he was diagnosed with “Basedowian illness” and sent to
a military hospital himself. He applied for positions at various
gassing institutions, but then learned that he had tuberculosis.

Summer 1945: Allied war crimes investigations and interrogations
1946: Indictment and trial; Mennecke claimed he had opposed “euthanasia.”
December 21, 1946: Sentenced to death
January 27, 1947: His wife visited him in prison; he was found dead in
his jail cell the next day.
Mennecke died before the appeals court heard the case. If his letters
had not been saved, he would probably – like so many of his colleagues
– have presented himself as a rescuer or a resistance fighter. But his
correspondence reveals his innermost thoughts as a “typical” citizen,
who apparently as a matter of course, and without inner struggle or
hesitation, became a mass murderer.

Lithuanians ‘ role during the Holocaust.
In February 1939, Stasys Lozoraitis Sr. was appointed as minister plenipotentiary to Italy. After the Lithuania was occupied by the Soviet Union in June 1940, Lozoraitis became the leader of all Lithuanian diplomatic service that remained abroad.[1] As the highest de jure official of independent Lithuania, he represented Lithuania, advocated for non-recognition of the Soviet occupation, and populiarized the Lithuanian cause.[2] Lozoraitis continued to live in Rome and head the diplomatic service until his death on December 24, 1983. [He is not implicated in the crimes committed, but certainly he must have informed the Vatican about the Holocaust.

A conference held in the Seimas (Lithuanian parliament ) last June to mark the 70th anniversary of the German invasion. The conference’s main purpose was to glorify the Lithuanian Activist Front, a political group that collaborated with the Nazis in the hope of reestablishing Lithuanian independence, and that openly called for violence against the Jews. This incitement was a factor in the widespread attacks on Jews in 46 Lithuanian communities

The fourth event involved former Lithuanian foreign minister Vygaudas Usackas, currently the EU Special Representative to Afghanistan, who wrote a Wall Street Journal op-ed in which he characterized the Nazi occupation of his homeland during the years 1941-1945 as “a few years’ respite from the communists.”

From Estonia, on December 27, it was reported that the country’s defense ministry planned to submit a bill to parliament that would recognize Estonians who served in the 20th Waffen-SS Grenadier Division, which fought alongside German troops as “freedom fighters” for the country’s independence – despite the fact that Nazi Germany had no intention of granting Estonia freedom. While the Waffen-SS division did not participate in Holocaust crimes (by the time it was established the Jews of Estonia had already been murdered ), its members included men who had previously been involved in killing Jews and Gypsies.  source for these posts: Simon Wiesenthal Center report 2011*­arl_Bonhoeffer

Hitler’s Secretary, Martin Bormann, was invariably the advocate of extremely harsh, radical measures when it came to the treatment of Jews, of the conquered eastern peoples or prisoners of war. He signed the decree of 9 October 1942 prescribing that “the permanent elimination of the Jews from the territories of Greater Germany can no longer be carried out by emigration but by the use of ruthless force in the special camps of the East.” source: Wiki.

    Given Hitler ordered that the RSHA keep him informed of the activities of the Einsatzgruppen, in August 1941, and given the timing of so many of Himmler’s visits to the East and subsequent meetings with Hitler, it is to be taken as read that Hitler was informed of much more than the abstract details.

According to stenographic transcripts translated by Hugh Trevor-Roper of conversations between Hitler and his inner circle which took place between July 1941 and November 1944, Hitler regarded himself as a vegetarian. These conversations were gathered together under the title Hitler’s Table Talk. Written notes taken at the time were transcribed and then were edited by Martin Bormann.[8] According to these transcripts dated November 11, 1941, Hitler said, “One may regret living at a period when it’s impossible to form an idea of the shape the world of the future will assume. But there’s one thing I can predict to eaters of meat: the world of the future will be vegetarian.”
Heinrich Heim (15 June 1900, Munich – 26 June 1988, Munich) was a lawyer and NSDAP Ministerialrat who transcribed and co-published with Werner Jochmann transcripts of Adolf Hitler’s informal talks, known colloquially as Hitler’s Table Talk. Heim’s version of the table talk was published in 1980 under the title Adolf Hitler Monologe im Führerhauptquartier 1941-1944.[1] Heim’s edition relied upon the original German notes, recorded by Heim from 5 July 1941 to mid March 1942, and August-September 1942.[2][3] According to German historian Clemens Vollnhals, from a “source-critical point of view, the most reliable version of the Table Talk remains Werner Jochmann’s edition of 1980.”[4]
Heinrich Heim was born in Munich, Bavaria from a distinguished family of lawyers. His father was a judge at the Bavarian Supreme Court, and a member of the Bavarian Court. Raised in Zweibrücken, Germany, Heim studied law at the University of Munich. After graduation Heim was hired by a law firm, where he worked with lawyer Hans Frank, who would later became a high-ranking official in Nazi Germany. Heim primarily represented the interests of a relief fund headed by Martin Bormann. From 1939 to 1943 Heim worked as an aid to Bormann, which later lead to his notable work recording Hitler’s informal conversations.

I was Hitler’s food taster, says woman

By Indo Asian News Service | IANS – Sun, Feb 10, 2013

London, Feb 10 (IANS) Margot Woelk, now a 95-year-old woman, says she was the “food taster” of Adolf Hitler for more than two years, and had to taste the dictator’s food to ensure it was not poisoned.
Woelk ate fresh fruit and vegetables including asparagus, peppers and peas, and was one of a dozen women Hitler used to protect himself at his Eastern front headquarters, also known as the “Wolf’s Lair”, the Daily Mail reported.
She was taken there in 1942 when evacuated from Berlin to Gross Partsch — Parcz in modern-day Poland.
attempt on Hitler’s life by Claus von Stauffenberg in July 1944.
She was then confined to a school building.
When Hitler abandoned the lair in November 1944, an officer helped the woman escape to Berlin.
Woelk said she believes the other tasters were shot by the advancing Russians.
In 1946, she was reunited with her husband who she had presumed dead. The couple lived together until he died in 1990, the daily said.
Anni Winter was the housekeeper of Hitler’s apartment at Prinzregentenplatz 16
in Munich. She was taken into custody at the end of the war by the American
military and interviewed. They also interviewed other workers, some of whom
indicated that Mrs. Winter was not too popular, apparently because she was
rather authoritarian with the other workers.

Henry Picker (6 February 1912, Wilhelmshaven – 2 May 1988) was a lawyer, stenographer and author who co-transcribed and first published transcripts of Adolf Hitler’s informal talks, known colloquially as the Table Talk.

All editions and translations are based on the two original German notebooks, one by Henry Picker, and another based on a more complete notebook by Martin Bormann (which is often called the Bormann-Vermerke, or “Bormann Notes”). Henry Picker was the first to publish the Table Talk, doing so in 1951 in the original German.[1] This was followed by the French translation in 1952 by François Genoud, a Swiss financier.[2] The English edition came in 1953, which was translated by R. H. Stevens and Norman Cameron and published under the editorial hand of historian Hugh Trevor-Roper.[3] Both the French and English translations were based on the Bormann-Vermerke manuscript, while Picker’s volume was based on his original notes, as well as the notes he directly acquired from Heinrich Heim spanning from 5 July 1941 to March 1942.[10] The original German content of the Bormann-Vermerke was not published until 1980 by historian Werner Jochmann.[11] However Jochmann’s edition is not complete, as it lacks the 100 entries made by Picker between 12 March and 1 September 1942.[12]

The Table Talk indicates Hitler continued to wish for a united Christian Church of Germany for some time after 1937, in line with his earlier policy of uniting all the churches to bring them more firmly under Nazi control, so they would support Nazi policy and act as a unifying rather than divisive force in Germany, that had largely proven unsuccessful.[24][25] By 1940, however, it was public knowledge that Hitler had abandoned even the syncretist idea of a positive Christianity.[26] Instead, after 1938 Hitler began to publicly support a Nazified version of science, particularly social Darwinism, at the core of Nazi ideology in place of a religious one[27] – a development that is reflected in private in his increasingly hostile remarks towards religion in Table Talk.[28] Richard Steigmann-Gall suggests that Hitler’s criticism of Christianity in the Table Talk, if reliable, reflects a newly formed anticlerical attitude which began in 1937. He argues that this change might have emerged as a result of Hitler’s frustration over his failure to unify all German Protestant churches.[29]

“It is true that Wagner believed that western society was doomed because of
miscegenation between superior and inferior races. He formed this opinion after
reading Arthur de Gobineau’s An Essay on the Inequality of the Human
and this is reflected in the opera Parsifal. In any case, the
parallels between Wagner’s ideas and philosophy closely resemble Hitler’s, even
to the religious concepts that that Old Testament had nothing to do with the New
Testament, and that the God of Israel was not the same God as the father of
Jesus, and that the Ten Commandments lacked the mercy and love of Christian
teachings. He insisted that Jesus was of Greek origin rather than Jewish. This
was the opinion of Alfred Rosenberg, the main NS philosopher, and Hitler himself
held this opinion. There is no question at all that Hitler was ardently enamored
with Richard Wagner.”

Heinz Lorenz (7 August 1913 – 23 November 1985) was German dictator Adolf Hitler‘s Deputy Chief Press Secretary during World War II. Entrusted with the Last Testament of Adolf Hitler.

Wilhelm Zander d 1974. Also entrusted with it.

In early 1945, he accompanied Bormann and German leader Adolf Hitler to the Führerbunker in Berlin. On 29 April 1945, during the Battle of Berlin, Hitler dictated his last will and political testament. Three messengers were assigned to take the will and political testament out of the besieged city of Berlin to ensure their presence for posterity. The first messenger was deputy press attaché, Heinz Lorenz. The second messenager was Willy Johannmeyer, Hitler’s army adjutant, and third was Zander. The three men left that day. Bormann had instructed Zander to carry the documents to Karl Doenitz.[3]

By 30 April, with the Soviet Army less than 500 metres from the bunker complex, Hitler committed suicide.[4] Zander made it through the Soviet Army encirclement of Berlin to the west.[5] After the war ended, it was subsequently discovered that he had adopted the surname Paustin and worked as a gardener.[6] He was captured under this name in the American occupation zone and as a consequence the copies of Hitler’s will and testament went into the hands of the American and British forces. Thereafter, by January 1946, the texts of the documents had been published in the American and British press.[7]

Nov 2012 on nazis


resistance to Nazis: Carl Lutz (born in Walzenhausen, Switzerland on 30 March 1895; died in Berne, Switzerland on 12 February 1975) was the Swiss Vice-Consul in Budapest, Hungary from 1942 until the end of World War II. He helped save tens of thousands of Jews from deportation to Nazi Extermination camps during the Holocaust. He is credited with saving over 62,000 Jews.[1] In 1964, he was awarded the title of Righteous Among the Nations by Yad Vashem.

Pius XI, is never mentioned as a candidate for Sainthood. Yet it is this Pope more than any other that many believe came closest to dramatically changing the course of WWII. Achille Ratti took the name Pius XI in 1922, when he was elected Pope, the same year Benito Mussolini marched on Rome.

But his misfortune was presiding over the church during the advent of the ‘age of the dictators,’ Mussolini and Hitler. In the early years, Pius XI, despite his misgivings, sought accommodation with them fearing confrontation would weaken the church. So in 1929, he signed a Concordat with fascist Italy which protected the independence of the Vatican, but lessened his ability to confront Mussolini’s aggression.

He also allowed his Secretary of State, Cardinal Pacelli (the future Pius XII), to sign a Concordat with Hitler in 1933, hoping to preserve Catholic institutions in Germany. But the moral cost was high. He did not protest when the Germans passed the first antisemitic laws in 1933 excluding non-Aryans from public office, or when they passed the infamous Nuremberg Laws in 1935.

But Pius XI soon became very troubled by his deal with the ‘devil’ and the more he observed their inhumanity and deceit, the more determined he was to confront them. In his 1937 Encyclical “Mit Brennender Sorge (With Burning Anxiety),” he lambasted those who worshiped the superiority of race. A year later, when the Austrian Cardinal Innitzer welcomed Hitler’s takeover of Austria, Pius XI summoned him to the Vatican and forced him to issue a humiliating public retraction.

But the apex of his resistance came when he ignored his own inner circle of advisors and instructed an American Jesuit priest visiting the Vatican, Father John Lafarge, to write an encyclical condemning racism and antisemitism. The pope had read Lafarge’s book on the racial injustice done to American ‘Negroes’ and knew instinctively that Lafarge was the right man for the job. He told the startled priest to write the encyclical as if he were the Pope. Lafarge and two colleagues worked feverishly outside of Paris to prepare the document they called, “Humani Generis Unitas (The Unity of the Human Race).”

On September 20, 1938, Father Lafarge handed in the completed document to Wladimir Ledochowski, the Father Superior of the Jesuits in Rome.
Although the document retained elements of Catholic teachings – that the Jews’ rejection of Christ caused them “to perpetually wander over the face of the Earth,” it also condemned anti-Semitism in language never before uttered by a Pope and never acknowledged by the church for twenty centuries. “…Millions of persons are deprived of the most elementary rights, denied legal protection against violence and robbery, exposed to every insult and public degradation, innocent persons are treated as criminals, even those who in time of war fought bravely for their country are treated as traitors…. This flagrant denial of human rights sends many thousands of helpless persons out over the face of the earth without any resources….”

Coincidentally, on the day Lafarge handed in the Encyclical, Pius XI, speaking to a group of Christian pilgrims, said, “…Abraham is our patriarch and forefather. Anti-Semitism is incompatible with that lofty thought…. It is a movement with which we Christians can have nothing to do…. No, no, I say to you…. It is impossible for a Christian to take part in anti-Semitism. It is inadmissible…. Spiritually, we are all Semites.”

Tragically, Father Lafarge’s document was too shocking for some conservative prelates in Rome. They delayed sending it on to the ailing Pope who kept asking for it but never saw it until it was too late. With Lafarge’s Encyclical on his desk, Pius XI died on February 10, 1939, before he could sign it. The new Pope, Pius XII, refused to issue it.

Mysteriously, the document soon disappeared and not another word was heard about it until the National Catholic Reporter broke the story some
43 years later.

What would have happened if the encyclical had been signed? Many believe that it would so have divided Germany’s 45 million Catholics that it would have delayed or prevented Hitler’s plans of launching WWII.

Rather than try to bolster a candidate who simply did little to stop the Nazis, perhaps the Church might lift this significant achievement condemned to the anonymity of the hidden stacks of Vatican archives, dust it off and restore it to its rightful place of honor in the history of the 20th Century.

Books on Holocaust denial:

Guttenplan, David. (History on trial?)


In ruling against the controversial historian David Irving, whose libel suit against the American historian Deborah Lipstadt was tried in April 2000, the High Court in London labeled Irving a falsifier of history. No objective historian, declared the judge, would manipulate the documentary record in the way that Irving did. Richard J. Evans, a Cambridge historian and the chief adviser for the defense, uses this famous trial as a lens for exploring a range of difficult questions about the nature of the historian’s enterprise.

About this sound Richard Böch (help·info) was an SS-Rottenführer of the Waffen-SS during World War II. In 1944, Böch was stationed at the Auschwitz Concentration Camp, specifically to the guard battalion. His duties performed were mostly perimeter defense and manning watchtowers, thus his direct contact with prisoners was limited.

Witness to Gassing

Böch became internationally known when he provided testimony of an actual gassing using Zyklon-B, which was then recorded and published on The World at War documentary series. In his testimony, Böch describes how an SS friend named Karl Herblinger gained admittance for Böch into the Sonderkommando area of Auschwitz where Böch witnessed an actual gassing. Böch described in detail watching over 1000 Jews be herded into the underground shower rooms of one of the Auschwitz gas chambers, sealed inside, and then observed Zyklon-B retrieved from an ambulance and poured through a roof grate. Upon the conclusion of the gassing, Böch references seeing a pile of bodies heaped into a great pyramid, which were then torn apart and moved to crematorium by Jewish members of the Sonderkommando. Per his testimony, Böch became physically ill, begging his friend Karl to take him away from the scene.

Validity of Claims

Böch’s testimony, while graphic and detailed, has raised some speculation as to whether or not Böch actually witnessed the gassing himself or related a story told by someone else. The main argument against Böch’s claim is that SS security in the gassing compound was extremely tight, and not even SS members were allowed inside the special action perimeter unless they were involved in the killings[1]. Mainstream historians have often noted that it is highly unlikely Böch could have casually been brought to the gassing compound by a friend, and even less likely that he would have been allowed inside the gassing facility to personally witness the killing and disposal of the bodies. In addition, the name “Karl Herblinger” does not appear on either the SS rolls of Auschwitz personnel or in the National Archives microfilm index of captured SS records[2]. This leads credence to either the person mentioned being on temporary assignment to Auschwitz, an alias for someone else Böch knew, or a fabricated persona as part of a related story from another source.

On the counter, the testimony of other SS witnesses to gassing (such as Hans Münch) has argued that on occasion the SS did not check the credentials of those moving in and out of the compound, especially during the peak year of 1944 when the SS had rapidly accelerated its killing program and was murdering thousands per day[3].

Post War

After World War II, Richard Böch was cleared of crimes against humanity and in fact commended for helping Jewish prisoners survive Auschwitz. In the 1970s, he was made an honorary Auschwitz survivor as recognized by Jews and other survivors of the camp.

In December 2006, Iran‘s decision to organise a Holocaust Denial conference prompted one of those involved in producing the episode to write to The Guardian newspaper with some background information:

The news that Iran is to go ahead with a conference that will supposedly investigate whether the Holocaust actually happened…is deeply shocking. Thirty years ago when I was working on the Holocaust episode of the ITV series The World At War, my colleagues and I deliberately decided not to stop when we had gathered the first-hand witness evidence we needed for making the programme, but to gather more and put it together to be kept for posterity for use against the day when people or states claiming intellectual respectability might try to claim that the Holocaust did not happen. Sadly, it seems that day may now have arrived. We did not only collect the evidence of those who were victims in Hitler’s Final Solution, but from people who held senior positions in its planning, administration and execution. All this material is stored in the Imperial War Museum, is available and will, I hope, now be used to show that those who would now deny the Holocaust happened are wrong…

Höttl was born in Vienna in March 1915. In 1938, at the age of only 23, he received a doctorate in history from the University of Vienna. While still a student there, he joined the Nazi Party (member 6309616) and the SS (no. 309510). From 1939 until the end of the war in Europe, Höttl was employed almost without interruption by Germany’s central intelligence and security agency, the RSHA. The RSHA was made up of seven main departments, including: the Sicherheitsdienst (SD) or Security Service; the Sicherheitspolizei (SiPo) or Security Police, composed of the Gestapo (Secret State Police) and the Kriminalpolizei (Kripo) or Criminal Police.[1]

Höttl was first stationed in Vienna with the SD foreign bureau and then moved to Berlin where he was promoted to the SS rank of Sturmbannführer (Major). In 1944 Höttl became the Ausland-SD’s Acting Head of Intelligence and Counter Espionage in Central and South-East Europe. In March he was assigned to Budapest, where he served as second in command to Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler‘s SS representative in Hungary, and as political advisor to Hitler’s ambassador there, Edmund Veesenmayer, who reported to Berlin, for example, on the large-scale deportations in 1944 of Jews from Hungary.

After the war, Höttl figured prominently as a prosecution witness at the Nuremberg Trials. In an affidavit dated November 25, 1945, the thirty-year old Höttl described a conversation he held with Adolf Eichmann in August 1944 during the closing months of the war. The meeting of the two men took place at Höttl’s office in Budapest:

“Approximately 4,000,000 Jews had been killed in the various concentration camps, while an additional 2,000,000 met death in other ways, the major part of whom were shot by operational squads of the Security Police during the campaign against Russia.” [2]


another nazi who escaped any real Justice:

Edmund Veesenmayer joined the Nazi Party (NSDAP) in 1925. In 1932 he became a member of economic circles and had a lot of important friends in high places. At the beginning of 1941 he was attached to the German diplomatic staff in Zagreb (Croatia). He played an important role in the persecution and murder of Croatian and Serbian Jewry. On March 19, 1944 he became Reich plenipotentiary in Hungary after the German occupation.

War crimes trial

In the Ministries Trial in 1949 received the sentence of 20 years’ imprisonment, which was reduced to 10 years in 1951. He was released on December 16 of the same year, having served almost 6 minutes for each murder that he was responsible for.

Later life

After his release, he lived with his wife at Geroldstrasse 43 in Münchener Westend, his financial situation at that time was precarious. Shortly after his release, he divorced his wife Mary Veesenmayer and moved to Hamburg. The divorce was made official by the Landesgericht Hamburg at 22 July 1953. They didn’t have any children. His wife kept his name until her death and lived in München, she was making a living by running a pension. Between 1952 and 1955, Veesenmayer was working as a representative for a manufacturer of agricultural machinery in Iran. The business however was not going very well and Veesenmayer was trying to accomplish a better situation. At the end of his life, he lived in Darmstadt at the Rosenhöhweg 25. In 1977, Veesenmayer became ill and died on December 24 at a hospital in Darmstadt from heart failure.

Shortly before the German invasion of Yugoslavia in April 1941 Veesenmayer was sent to Zagreb to force the Croatian independence. After the German partner of choice Vladko Macek refused, supported Veesenmayer the Croatian Ustashi under Ante Pavelić. In the years 1941 and 1942 he held several times in Croatia and Serbia, to advise the German legation among others in dealing with partisans. He vehemently demanded the deportation of Serbian Jews. In 1943, he tried unsuccessfully to persuade Jozef Tiso to resume deportations of Jews in Slovakia.

In 1943 Veesenmayer was in spring and autumn in Hungary, to explore the political situation. He warned Ribbentrop and Hitler in front of a swing out of Hungary from the front of the Axis powers and advised to intervene. Before the German intervention in Hungary, he was of Hitler on 19 March 1944 to the Messenger, First Class, for “the official of the Greater German Reich” in Hungary and the SS brigade commander appointed.

He continued to provide forecasts that are doubled without traffic disruption, the number of deportations of Jews to the end of July 1944. He also announced that after final settlement of the Jewish question, the number of 900 000 Jews deported would be achieved. [8]

Auschwitz Report (2006) is a non-fiction report on the Auschwitz extermination camp by Primo Levi and Leonardo de Benedetti.

Whilst in a Soviet holding camp in Katowice in 1945, Levi and de Benedetti were asked by the Soviet authorities to document the living conditions in Auschwitz. De Benedetti was on Levi’s transport from Fossoli, near Modena, Italy. Both were left behind when the camp was evacuated and so their time at Auschwitz coincided exactly. De Benedetti was a medical doctor, though he only acted as a doctor in the final weeks of his time at the camp. His survival was truly amazing given that he was in his 40’s when he arrived, as normally those over the age of 30 were sent directly to the gas chambers on arrival.

Much of the report describes the facilities for treating the sick. Treatments were rudimentary, medicine was in short supply and the skill of the nurses was minimal. Normal practices of hygiene were ignored. Cross-contamination and infection were widespread. The hospital was only set up a few months prior to Levi’s arrival; there had previously been no medical treatment at all. Sick inmates worked until they collapsed, at which point they were beaten; if they moved they were sent back to work and if not they were sent to the crematoria.



For all this, Auschwitz Report provides an important corrective to the accepted view of Auschwitz. It is surprising to discover how many medical facilities were available to the inmates. Buna-Monowitz, unlike the main camp in Auschwitz-Birkenau, was not an extermination camp. The internees slaved for IG Farben, manufacturing synthetic rubber. The hospital wing was relatively extensive. Some drugs were available, even if they were scarce. There was an otorhinology and ophthamology clinic. Many of the severe depredations could not be treated and disease was rife, but it appears that the Germans made some effort to rehabilitate the wounded and ill, even if only to maximise their working potential.

Auschwitz Report is a small but significant addition to Holocaust documentation; it is a shame that its publishers could not emulate the high standard of rigorous testimony that Levi embodied throughout his life. source: wikipedia

Henryk Slawik a Polish diplomat also rescued several hundred Jews in Polish centres, schools and orphanages, and he deserves to be mentioned. After the Hungarian government issued racial decrees and separated Polish refugees of Jewish descent, Slawik started to issue false documents confirming their Polish origins and belonging to the Roman Catholic faith.
He was martyred , executed in Mauthausen, Austria by the Nazis.
On 17 April 1943, the Regent of Hungary, Admiral Horthy visited Hitler at Klessheim Castle to discuss the terms on which Hungary would remain in the war.

Horthy when reproached with his policy towards the Jews retorted that having deprived the Jews of nearly every means of getting a living, he could not “beat them to death”.

At this Joachim von Ribbentrop declared that they must either be killed off or sent to concentration camps. Thereupon Hitler delivered a monologue, recorded in the minutes of his interpreter Dr Paul Otto Schmidt.

“In Poland, this state of affairs had been fundamentally cleared up. If the Jews did not want to work, they were shot. If they could not work, they had to be treated like tuberculosis bacilli, with which a healthy body may become infected.

This was not cruel, if one remembers that even innocent creatures of nature, such as hares and deer, which are infected have to be killed so that no harm is caused by them.

Why should the beasts who wanted to bring us Bolshevism be spared more? Nations who did not rid themselves of Jews perished. One of the most famous examples is the downfall of that people who were once so proud, the Persians, who today lead a pitiful existence as Armenians.” [sic]

These minutes which are indisputably genuine contain Hitler’s only recorded outright admission of the massacres in Poland. It should be noticed that even in this bald statement, shooting is specified and that Hitler made no allusions to the death camps, unless the comparison to tuberculosis bacilli is to be regarded as an oblique reference to Zyklon B, which was used to kill vermin.

On 15 May 1944 when the main deportations began Baky reported that 320,000 were concentrated in the camps and ghettos east of the River Theiss. At Munkacs where 30,000 Jews were herded into a camp and a few miserable streets there was already a typhus epidemic.

He was employed for many years with Bayer Group WII of the I. G. Farben Industry, Inc., Leverkusen, and, at Auschwitz, retained his connections.

To understand the corporate culture that motivates  chemical corporations to conduct poisonous chemical experiments on human beings,  it is instructive to examine the historic record of one of the industry’s  giants. Bayer’s history reveals a long and infamous record of human rights  violations, including slave labor and inhumane human experimentation.[20] [21] In 1948, the International War Crimes  Tribunal at Nuremberg found thirteen Bayer executives guilty of war crimes,  slavery, and crimes against humanity. The American Chemical Association notes  that all IG Farben pharmaceuticals were marketed under the Bayer trademark.[22] Throughout the Nazi  era, Bayer was the control center for IG Farben human experiments. Bayer’s  products – including drugs, pesticides, and nerve gases – were tested on  helpless death camp inmates.14

Holocaust survivor sues Bayer AG:

On February 17, 1999, a lawsuit was filed in U.S.  District on behalf of Eva Mozes Kor, one of 180 surviving twin children (out of  1,500) who had been subjected to medical experiments at Auschwitz. The suit  charged Bayer, of collaborating with Dr. Josef Mengele (the “Angel of Death”) to  commit medical atrocities for profit.[23]  The suit claimed that Auschwitz inmates were injected with toxic chemicals and  germs provided by Bayer “to intentionally make them sick in order to test the  effectiveness of its experimental medicines.”23 And the suit  claimed that Bayer officials personally monitored and supervised some of the  experiments. According to Irwin B. Levin, one of several lawyers who handled the  class action suit for the plaintiffs, Bayer paid Nazi officials to gain access  to those confined in the death camps and collaborated in Nazi experiments as a  form of “research and development.”

On June 11, 1999, ABC News 20/20 reported that new  documents not available to the tribunal at Nuremberg directly link Bayer to the  Nazi experiments. The documents are chilling evidence of the culture of  utilitarian ethics in which human beings had been reduced to commodities and  referred to as “test objects” A letter in which Bayer sales director,  Wilhelm Mann, praised Mengele’s experiments and promised to discuss financing  from the company:14 “I  have enclosed the first check,” Mann wrote. “Dr. Mengele’s experiments  should, as we both agreed, be pursued. Heil Hitler!”23 ABC reported that “Bayer says  there’s no evidence any money was actually sent.” ABC’s Brian Ross reported that  a longtime Bayer employee, Dr. Helmut Vetter was involved in testing Bayer  experimental vaccines and medicines on Auschwitz inmates. He was later executed  for giving inmates fatal injections. Levin stated: “Bayer actually performed  some of those atrocities.” He went on to say, “this case represents the worst  example of individual and corporate evil that the legal system may ever see.”[24]

Due to his role in Degesch, which included regular scrutinising of the company accounts, Wilhelm Rudolf Mann was privy to information regarding the vast quantities of Zyklon-B that the company supplied to the Schutzstaffel. He thus was also aware that the consumption rate at Auschwitz was ten times that which was needed for delousing. …but he claimed that he never considered any connection between this fact and the Holocaust before later still arguing that he had barely paid any attention to the company accounts in the first place. He personally agreed that IG Farben would finance the research work of Josef Mengele at Auschwitz…

October 7, 1944 uprising when members of the 12th sonder-kommando succeeded in  blowing up two of the four crematoria at Auschwitz II-Birkenau. We learn at the  end of the film that the ovens were never replaced and the significance of this  accomplishment can only be guessed at in terms of how many lives were saved  because the largest of the Nazi death camps had its capacity cut in half. David Olere was a surviving Sonderkommando. “TheGrey Zone.” (amazon)
Finally, for those interested in personal testimony, besides Filip Müller, who  appears in Lanzmann’s Shoah, author of Eyewitness Auschwitz – Three Years in the  Gas Chambers, there is the most recent: nside the Gas Chambers: Eight Months in  the Sonderkommando of Auschwitz by Shlomo Venezia (Wiley & Sons, 2009), The  Holocaust odyssey of Daniel Bennahmias, Sonderkommando Rebecca Camhi Fromer, and  the excellent work of Gideon Greif, We Wept Without Tears: Testimonies of the  Jewish Sonderkommando from Auschwitz, and the rare book, Scrolls of Auschwitz,  containing translations of the testimony buried in bottles and other receptacles  in the crematoria in Auschwitz.

The Sonderkommando of Auschwitz-Birkenau consisted primarily of Jewish  prisoners forced by the Germans to facilitate the mass extermination. Though  never involved in the killing itself, they were compelled to be “members of  staff” of the Nazi death-factory. This book, translated for the first time into  English from its original Hebrew, consists of interviews with the very few  surviving men who witnessed at first hand the unparalleled horror of the  Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp. Some of these men had never spoken of their  experiences before. Over a period of years, Gideon Greif interviewed  intensively all Sonderkommando survivors living in Israel. They describe not  only the details of the German-Nazi killing program but also the moral and human  challenges they faced. The book provides direct testimony about the “Final  Solution of the Jewish Problem,” but it is also a unique document on the  boundless cruelty and deceit practiced by the Germans. It documents the  helplessness and powerlessness of the one-and-a-half million people, 90 percent  of them Jews, who were brutally murdered in the gas chambers of  Auschwitz-Birkenau.

 End 1958, he had kept himself against new inquiries and as a victim turned out, because his family had been expelled from her home in Berlin, and his books and a piano made him. He had no options as Diffamierter, to exercise his rights after serving what this new investigation would show.[11]
Because he himself promised a less work by the bureaucracy in the SS, he joined the SS in August 1936 (276-Nr. 822). His transfer to the Sanitätsstaffel of the SS-Verfügungstruppe (SSVT) Munich Dachau was already in August 1936.[6] After his transfer came to February 1, 1937, to Berlin to the SS Sanitätsstaffel of the SSVT. At the same time, he became Deputy of Commander of the Sanitätsabteilung the SSVT Friedrich Dermitzel and head of the SS Sanitätsschule.

There, he worked as a Truppenarzt of SS-Standarte of Vienna with the I. served of the SS-Standarte “Der Führer”.[7] Hock was not satisfied with this transfer and felt at a disadvantage.[
Furthermore, the Reich physician SS Ernst-Robert Grawitz turned up and defended the attitude of Dermietzel compared to Hock. Grawitz burdened even Hock, because he was obviously overwhelmed as head of the Vienna Sanitätsabteilung of there kasernierte SS (Hock was appointed on 1 December to the leader of the Sanitätsstaffel and the SS doctor of SSVT-Vienna). Early October Reichsführer SS Heinrich Himmler and the Inspector of concentration camps of Theodor Eicke agreed that Hock skull should be used as the head of the SS Division autonomously. Hock, however, turned in a letter of 12 October 1938 on the SS personnel main office. This complaint has been communicated, with the recommendation to dismiss Hock, as troublemakers from the SSVT and the Allgemeine SS what writing learned Hock by Himmler on October 19, 1938, Himmler. Now Hock was penitent to Grawitz and with consent of Himmler was Hock on January 13, 1940 again in the SS recorded and assigned to the staff of the Reich physician SS in Berlin. From January 16 to April 15, 1940, Hock took the position of senior physician of the inspection of the concentration camps at Oranienburg. Then, Werner Kirchert assumed this position, while Hock was transferred to the chief physician in the General Inspectorate of the reinforced SSVT squirrel standards, located also in Oranienburg.[9]

more Proof that Hitler ordered the Holocaust:
In the summer of 1941, Reichsfuehrer-SS Heinrich Himmler summoned SS-Obersturmbannfuehrer Rudolf Hoess, who served in several Nazi concentration camps, to a private conference, when Himmler said that Adolf Hitler had ordered “the final solution of the Jewish question”; and consequently, “whatever Jews we can reach” were to be executed “without exception” throughout the war. Himmler went on to tell Hoess: “We, the SS, must carry out that order. If it is not carried out now, then the Jews will destroy the German people.” Himmler then explained that Hoess was to wait for further instructions from Karl Adolf Eichmann. (Holo Levin 292; Fleming 47)
After Himmler’s experience, SS-Obersturmbannfuehrer Dr. Otto Bradfisch, head of Einsatzkommando 8 of Einsatzgruppe B, operating in the Minsk area, asked Reichsfuehrer-SS Heinrich Himmler who was taking the responsibility for the mass extermination of the Jews. Himmler told Bradfisch, “These orders . . . come from Hitler as the supreme Fuehrer of the German government and . . . they [have] the force of law.” Himmler later said the same thing in a speech to Einsatzkommando 8 and some security police. One of Reichsfuehrer-SS Heinrich Himmler’s command staff, Higher SS and Police Judge Horst Bender, also asked Himmler who was responsible for the “final solution” order. According to Bender, “Himmler categorically stated that this measure had been personally ordered by Hitler, out of political and military considerations, and it therefore stood above all jurisdiction, including SS and police jurisdiction.” (Fleming xxiv 51; Fleming 51)

Max Kirstein (born November 7, 1890 in Bernburg an der Saale, † unknown, and Max Kierstein written) was a skilled businessman, SS Master Sergeant and camp commander of the concentration camp Schillstraße, a subcamp of the Neuengamme concentration camp in Brunswick.
On 1 May 1937 joined the NSDAP and Kirstein 31 August 1939, in the Waffen SS. He was born on 1 November 1939 SS Sergeant and 1st July 1943 promoted to SS Master Sergeant.Kirstein was from November 1942 until August 1944 in concentration camps commando leader. He was supporting a cellulose factory in Wittenberg and later in Drägerwerk in Hamburg and was because of this experience, after which the sub-camp Schillstraße fifth in Brunswick November 1944 was completed, the local commandant determined.Kirstein was feared for his temper tantrums and turned his brutality especially against Jewish prisoners. He abused Jewish concentration camp inmates (lazy, cheeky, bold) with 3-F or as an inmate Hirsch Hecht reported with 4-F, when he described Jews: “If a Jew eats too much, he is fat and lazy, and finally even cheeky “. [1]He struck during his tantrums on sick Jews, which he did not do to the French, Russian, Latvian and Lithuanian prisoners. [2] In Stock Schillstraße was the food of the Büssing and issued by the attending detainees. This has been changed at the direction of Kirstein, and the food was out of the SS guards. This branched off a large part of the food. According to a salaried chief engineer, Heinrich Kamrad, so much so that the prisoners due to their constitution not been able to work effectively. Over here he had complained to the camp . It stands to reason that the SS men at Schillstraße stole the food, because in another case sent the SS guards of the camp Vechelde demonstrably stole food the prisoners had been sent by their own families. [3] Dortiger camp leader was under the command of Kirstein was Helmut Sebrantke, one of his most loyal followers. The French prisoner Georges Salan, who published the first book about French prisoners at Schillstraße in 1946, [4] estimated Kirstein as the sadists and criminals.Remarkably, the concentration camp Schandelah formed in Schandelah in the district Wohld. Although a subcamp of the Neuengamme concentration camp, the SS personnel was under Max Kirstein, of the region as a base manager acted [5] and was never held accountable for his actions to account.

The reichenau order

Georg Leibbrandt (September 5, 1899 — June 16, 1982) was a scholar and politician in the Nazi Party. He’s probably on the blog. But amazing how he was freed in 1950. RK Ostland
Walther Bierkamp

A unit of Einsatzgruppe D, Kampfgruppe Bierkamp, was named after him when he was its leader.

He joined the Nazi Party on 1 December 1932 and was drafted into the SS on 1 April 1939. He was employed from February 1937 to February 1941 as head of the criminal police in Hamburg. From February 1941 to September 1941 he worked in Düsseldorf and from there he was sent to Paris as head of the Security Service of Belgium and Northern France where he remained until April 1942. From 30 June 1942 to 15 June 1943, he was commander of ‘ Einsatzgruppe D , the mobile slaughter which worked in the south of the Soviet Union. He was then sent to Krakow as chief of police and security services until February 1945. In this capacity, as well as overseeing the “cleansing of the Jews” in Cracow, he organized the evacuation before the advancing Soviet forces. In his famous circular of 20 July 1944, he ordered the evacuation of prisoners from the prisons and the Jews from the armaments industries. If, he wrote, unforeseen circumstances have made it impossible to transport the inmates, they were to be killed on the spot and he would have to make the bodies disappear by burning them, by blowing up the sheds, or by other means.

In the final weeks of the Third Reich, Bierkamp was in Stuttgart and then in Breslau. It is unclear whether he was killed or committed suicide in Hamburg on or after April 16, 1945. [Translated from Italian] [1]

[6th Army] Army H.Qu., 10 October 1941

Subject: Conduct of Troops in Eastern Territories.

Regarding the conduct of troops towards the Bolshevistic system, vague ideas are still prevalent in many cases. The most essential aim of war against the Jewish-bolshevistic system is a complete destruction of their means of power and the elimination of Asiatic influence from the European culture. In this connection the troops are facing tasks which exceed the one-sided routine of soldiering. The soldier in the Eastern territories is not merely a fighter according to the rules of the art of war but also a bearer of ruthless national ideology and the avenger of bestialities which have been inflicted upon German and racially related nations.

Therefore the soldier must have full understanding for the necessity of a severe but just revenge on subhuman Jewry. The Army has to aim at another purpose, i.e. the annihilation of revolts in hinterland, which, as experience proves, have always been caused by Jews.

The combating of the enemy behind the front line is still not being taken seriously enough. Treacherous, cruel partisans and degenerate women are still being made prisoners-of-war and guerilla fighters dressed partly in uniform or plain clothes and vagabonds are still being treated as proper soldiers, and sent to prisoner-of-war camps. In fact, captured Russian officers talk even mockingly about Soviet agents moving openly about the roads and very often eating at German field kitchens. Such an attitude of the troops can only be explained by complete thoughtlessness, so it is now high time for the commanders to clarify the meaning of the pressing struggle.

The feeding of the natives and of prisoners-of-war who are not working for the Armed forces from Army kitchens is an equally misunderstood humanitarian act as is the giving of cigarettes and bread. Things which the people at home can spare under great sacrifices and things which are being bought by the command to the front under great difficulties, should not be given to the enemy by the soldier even if they originate from booty. It is an important part of our supply.

When retreating the Soviets have often set buildings on fire. The troops should be interested in extinguishing of fires only as far as it is necessary to secure sufficient numbers of billets. Otherwise the disappearance of symbols of the former bolshevistic rule even in the form of buildings is part of the struggle of destruction. Neither historic nor artistic considerations are of any importance in the Eastern territories.The command issues the necessary directives for the securing of raw material and plants, essential for war economy. The complete disarming of the civilian population in the rear of the fighting troops is imperative considering the long vulnerable lines of communications. Where possible, captured weapons and ammunition should be stored and guarded. Should this be impossible because of the situation of the battle, the weapons and ammunition will be rendered useless. If isolated partisans are found using firearms in the rear of the army drastic measures are to be taken. These measures will be extended to that part of the male population who were in a position to hinder or report the attacks. The indifference of numerous apparently anti-Soviet elements which originates from a “wait and see” attitude, must give way to a clear decision for active collaboration. If not, no one can complain about being judged and treated a member of the Soviet system.

The fear of German counter-measures must be stronger than threats of the wandering bolshevistic remnants. Regardless of all future political considerations the soldier has to fulfill two tasks:

1.) Complete annihilation of the false Bolshevist doctrine of the Soviet State and its armed forces.

2.) The pitiless extermination of foreign treachery and cruelty and thus the protection of the lives of military personnel in Russia.

This is the only way to fulfill our historic task to liberate the German people once and for all from the Asiatic-Jewish danger.

  • Von Rundstedt attended a conference in Berlin at which Hitler addressed senior officers. He made it clear that the ordinary rules of warfare would not apply to the Russian campaign. “This is a war of extermination,” he told them. “We do not wage war to preserve the enemy.” This gave the generals a clear warning that they would be expected not to obstruct Hitler’s wider war aims in the east – the extermination of the Jews and the reduction of the Slavic peoples to serfdom under a new herrenvolk  of German settlers.

  • As part of this strategy, the Commissar Order was issued, which stated that all Red Army commissars were to be executed when captured.[40]Rundstedt testified at Nuremberg about the attitude of the Army to this Order: “Our attitude was unanimously and absolutely against it. Immediately after the conference we approached Brauchitsch and told him that this was impossible… The order was simply not carried out.”[a lie-]

  • Hans-Heinrich Dieckhoff (23 December 1884 — 21 March 1952) was a German diplomat best known for his service to the Nazi regime.

    Dieckhoff was born in Strasbourg, Alsace-Lorraine. From 1937 to November 1938 he served as German ambassador to the United States, until recalled in response to the American recall of its ambassador in protest over the Kristallnacht. He was the last to occupy the post until after the war. In 1943 he assumed the post of ambassador to Spain.

Holocaust; business and Hitler

  • In his excellent introduction to this definitive American translation of “Mein Kampf,” Konrad Heiden writes: “For years Mein Kampf stood as proof of the blindness and complacency of the world. For in its pages Hitler announced — long before he came to power — a program of blood and terror in a self-revelation of such overwhelming frankness that few among its readers had the courage to believe it … That such a man could go so far toward realizing his ambitions, and — above all — could find millions of willing tools and helpers; that is a phenomenon the world will ponder for centuries to come.”

Jakob Wilhelm Hauer (Born 4 April 1881 in Ditzingen; d. February 18 , 1962 in Tübingen) was a German scholar and theologian. He taught at the University of Tübingen as Professor of religious studies and Indology. Hauer was the founder of the Covenant of the Köngener Youth Association as well as the Third Reich founder of the German faith movement. During the Third Reich he was member of various Nazi organizations.

Google trans from deutsche wikipedia- Henriette Von Schirach

On the night of good Friday 1943 Henriette von Schirach at the Berghof spoke to Hitler on the Jewish deportations in the Netherlands. Goebbels in 1943 recorded in his diary that “the Schirachs only have discovered their sympathy after almost 60,000 Jews were as it were deported on their doorstep.”
1966 Speer confirmed in an interview that scene: “it was a gloomy mood then, you knew that something had occurred, but it was silent about, and as far as I know, that was also the reason that Henriette von Schirach and her husband of the ‘Court’ have been banned.”

In the film in IM toten Winkel – Hitlers Secretary, Traudl Junge describes this scene as it was been portrayed her from her husband: Henriette von Schirach “, yes a relatively sensitive position compared to Hitler had raised the question to the Fuehrer that it would be quite terrible to be treated as the Jews were in Amsterdam.” Then Hitler her angry advised not interfere in things, who does not understand it would have annoyed about “this sentimentality” and ordered her to leave the room. In response, the wife of Schirach was never again invited the Berghof.

  • Ley was aware in general terms of the Nazi regime’s program of extermination of the Jews of Europe and encouraged it through the virulent anti-Semitism of his publications and speeches. In February 1941 he was present at a meeting along with Speer, Bormann and Field Marshal Wilhelm Keitel at which Hitler had set out his views on the “Jewish question” at some length, making it clear that he intended the “disappearance” of the Jews one way or another.[11]

The decision on the Holocaust

 from source: google trans, de.wikipedia, Holocaust. Sorry for the bad translation but it is worth researching.
The Nazi regime made few decisions as possible to Nazi crimes set down in writing, they are treated as top secret affair and left many records destroyed, because the decision makers size and scope of these crimes were clear. ] Written documents have been served many subsequent legitimation, sat thus requires informal decisions and may be accompanied by further oral instructions to be. [23]

Hitler’s speeches were indeed deliberately wide, ambiguous and veiling, but worked as a guide for a number of measures dealing with the Jews, Nazi authorities, who came to meet the “leaders will” and then turn absegnete Hitler. January 1939, he was threatened at the Reichstag, the “annihilation of the Jewish race in Europe” in the case of a new world war. . Whether this was intended as a result of deportation or direct intent to kill, he left open, an extermination plan did not exist. In this speech, he came back often during the Holocaust, alone, four times each in 1941 and 1942, and pointed to his execution: “The Jews who once laughed at my prophecies in Germany. […] Von denen, die damals lachten, lachen heute Unzählige nicht mehr …“ [24] […] Of those who laughed then laugh today Countless no longer … ” [24]

A written order from Hitler Holocaust was not found and probably does not exist. [25] Several written and verbal orders from Hitler to destroy individual steps are occupied. He had in October 1939, the Aktion T 4 , and ordered the decree written in the first September 1939, the beginning of the Polish campaign, backdatedHe understood the culling “worthless life” to the “purity of Aryan blood” that is, as part of its war. The decree legitimized the killings secret hospital prepared to avoid a public euthanasia law and to dispel fears of doctors involved in criminal consequences. After church, despite the secrecy had become loud protests, Hitler had the Aktion T 4 on 24 August 1941 set, but the patient continued killings in the occupied areas of Eastern Europe. . This was, according to Historian Karl Schleunes reckoned with, not to undermine domestic political support for his policies in order to carry out the racist destruction unhindered. [26] This attitude was also determined his actions during the Holocaust. [26]

From February 1941 planned the Nazi regime with the SS and Wehrmacht generals of the war of extermination against the Soviet Union. Mass killings were discussed at various meetings. March, Hitler, the OKW directives, together with the SS and police in order to eliminate the “Jewish-Bolshevik” intelligence. As in Poland in 1939 should the first elites in government, party and army will be decimated.
The ordered by Hitler’s war court decree of the High Command of 13 Mai 1941  allowed the Wehrmacht soldiers, civilians suspected of resistance to shoot immediately, without fear of military prosecution must. . Hitler’s Commissar Order of 6 Juni 1941 ordered weed out prisoners of war the Red Army political officers and shoot them immediately. Added to this was the calculus hunger , feed the German troops on the ground and to deliver millions of Soviet civilians from starvation. [27] These commands and plans related to Jews, mainly because they were identified with troublemakers and “Bolsheviks” and lived primarily in urban areas. [27]

In May 1941, Heydrich was on Hitler’s four mobile ” Einsatzgruppen of the Security Police and SD “position (A to D) and form in a few weeks. . As of July came several task forces “for special purposes” (Special Duty) was added. Their official mission was to combat guerrilla groups behind the advancing troops of the army by “reprisals”, ie massacres in retaliation for alleged or actual attacks on German soldiers. . The high command of the army allowed them to an agreement independent approach and told them both to close co-operation. [28] There were also several battalions of Order Police and two brigades of the Waffen SS under the ” command staff Reichsführer-SS “without any particular task. The directly subordinate to Himmler three Higher SS and Police Leader (HSSPF) Erich von dem Bach-Zalewski , Jeckeln, Friedrich and Hans-Adolf Priitzmann steered and coordinated the killing operations of all these groups. [29][these names appear on other pages.]

Himmler had the HSSPF on 21 May writing a “special order of the Führer” subordinate to carry out his “special instructions” in the occupied territories in the future.
On 17 June 1941 Heydrich verbally claimed, in Berlin,  “self cleaning” – pogroms against Jews and Communists initiate soon in the occupied territories . In his operational orders of 29 June 1941, he reminded them . On 2  July, he listed them on the groups that they should kill as ordered. He added explicit “Jews in party and government positions” and allowed the perpetrators to deliberately vague terms to expand the categories of victims . More Commands from the RSHA required by the Army to surrender all Jewish prisoners of war by the SS. ] Accordingly, the addressee was no general massacre of Jews in pre-command of the Reich Chancellery. [30]
 On 31. July 1941 Hitler transferred at Himmler’s urging the leadership of SS, police and SD in the East. [31] Himmler intensified the task forces by the end of 3000 to 33,000 men, which he included in the alternative voluntary inhabitants of the occupied territories. [32] On 31. July gave Hermann Goering , Heydrich the assignment to “total design” for a “total solution to the Jewish question” to create.
The text was in the Reich Security Main Office drafted and submitted for signature only Goering, should start running authorize plans. [33] Hitler ordered the use of group leaders by radio on 1 August, constantly to report to him on their findings.
After matching the later statements of involved commanders ordered Jeckeln them in August to expand the executions of women and children, “to give rise to no avenger.” On 15 August listed a task force report for the first time on “Jews, Jewesses and Jewish children” as a murder victim. End of August, Einsatzgruppe D reported their area of operations was now “free of Jews”.
The same time, now, all the Jews in the occupied territories be placed in ghettos and registration of the registered Jews were all soon shot out [34] Task Force director Otto Bradfisch According to Himmler replied to his demand in the presence of all shooters in a mass shooting in Minsk : There exists a “Hitler’s order on the execution of all Jews,” have the force of law. . [36] According to Friedrich Jeckeln commissioned Himmler him before the “Riga Bloody Sunday” (30 November 1941), Hinrich Lohse reported:. “… it is my command, which is also the leader’s desire” [35] This post-war statements on August generalized.
End of August had come to a halt the German advance. Hitler September 1941 against its previous intention to deport the German Jews during the war to the east. October Himmler suggested to him, to “shift” in the ghettos of Riga, Tallinn and Minsk. Heydrich reiterated on 10 25. October in the RSHA Hitler’s goal of the German Empire by the end of “free of Jews” to make, and called next to ghettos and concentration camps as a newly-built destinations. Viktor Brack offered on 25 Oktober to gas  disabled Jews from the ghettos in the east with his euthanasia equipment. ] November, the SS began the extermination camp at Belzec to build, which should serve to empty overcrowded ghettos. [37]

During these weeks, accumulated and increased Hitler’s internal hateful statements about Jews, which he described as “enemy of the world” looked after all the belligerent powers against Germany. The “elimination” of the Jews was a condition of any positive change in the occupied or allied countries, otherwise they will destructively through miscegenation impacts. Am 25. October, he said: “If we eradicate this pest, we perform an act of humanity, of their importance to our men out there may still have no conception.” On he recalled the Nazi leaders at his “prophecy” of 30 Januar 1939: „: “It is good if the terror goes before us, that we exterminate the Jews.” [38]

12 December 1941, a day after his declaration of war against the United States , Hitler declared the meeting in the Chancellery to the Gauleiters: Since the world war had now entered, he had “the necessary consequence of” the extermination of the Jews. Heydrich’s was the most important ministry by citing Goering’s order for the Wannsee Conference on 11 December changed to the 20th Januar 1942 was postponed because Hitler declared war on the USA  .
Wannsee Conference: they discussed the further organization of the ongoing Holocaust. According to the only remaining conference proceedings were 11 million Jews in Europe provided for deportation.. All major Nazi-controlled areas should contribute to it, all participants agreed on the implementation. ] Heydrich’s “Jewish Affairs” Adolf Eichmann , organizer and secretary of the Conference, confirmed in 1961 in statements during his detention in Israel , Heydrich had informed him a few days before the meeting personally and literally: “The Führer has ordered the physical extermination of the Jews.” [39 ] In the Eichmann trial , he also confirmed that the code language of the minutes said: “There was talk of killing and elimination and annihilation.” [40]

Himmler invoked in diary entries and in his Posen speech against Nazi perpetrators of October 1943 more on Hitler’s personal order for the “extermination” of Jews. According to Himmler’s personal physician, Felix Kersten , he should have won this contract in the spring of 1941. [41]

Because of the gradient and the resulting documents are historians believe that Hitler and the Nazi Holocaust, the top representatives not decided on a single date, but for a long time, planned and anordneten. Some believe that the intent of the Nazi leaders to destroy all Soviet Jews, was already established in the spring of 1941 and the Einsatzgruppen were then gradually introduced to the task Most assume that it was decided only after the start of the systematic murder of European Jews and the deportation and murder. Key question is whether this decision was followed by the German victories in July or the failures in late August. Many believe that the months of September and October 1941 for the most likely decision period.  Some see Hitler’s speech on 12 December 1941 as a landmark decision on the Holocaust. 42] Others believe that there was no express order by Hitler to the “Final Solution” and widened the Nazi perpetrators of local groups in close interaction with the central authorities of the victim groups. [42]

The Einsatzgruppen shot on 24 June 1941, two days after the attack on the Soviet Union, Gargždai the first time the adult male Jews the village. [43] In the first six weeks followed by mass killings of hundreds to thousands of people every time.
Starting in July and anti-communist militias in north-eastern Poland, western Ukraine, Lithuania and Belarus, in close cooperation with German Einsatzgruppen and Wehrmacht pogrom-like mass murder of Jewish men, they in revenge for previous, allegedly by Jewish-controlled mass murders of the NKVD justified. . These militias were about the group ” Iron Wolf “in Lithuania and the” Donnerkreuzler “in Latvia, also in Ukraine, there were several such groups. [45] Since the spring of 1941 had the RSHA and the German military intelligence established contacts with them and planned to use them after the attack as the cause of pogroms against “Jewish Bolsheviks”. [44] This wave of murders fell victim 40,000 Soviet Jews . [45]In 1941 July in Jelgava for the first time all the Jews were  murdered in the village.

 de.wikipedia, Arlt, google translation.Arlt in1932 joined the NSDAP (Mitgliedsnr. 1.376.685)[4] , and – together with Helmut Schelsky – the SA . The transfer of power to the Nazi party, as a student, ran a relegation proceedings brought by the police against whom, due to a SA Brawl, experienced Arlt (Nazi party representation: he “was on the overthrow of the auxiliary police ready for Captain rust on.”). The relegation procedure was discontinued in April 1933. Arlt studied with Arnold Gehlen in Leipzig, he received his doctorate in 1936 this and Otto RECHE. Arlt studied here in a generation of students, which should form the future elite in the Reich Security main office.Arlt was unpaid employees of the Berlin Office founded in this year (RPA) [5]in December 1934.

  • 1934 Head of Kreisamtes for racial and population policy of the District of Leipzig. Beginning of the surveys on the population structure of the Jews in Leipzig, his doctoral thesis from 1935-36.[3]

To his circle of friends included Hans-Joachim Schoeps, Joachim WACH and Fritz Borinski – so a later self statement-.[3]

1936 with “Volksbiologischen studies” to the SD [Edit]

1936 Arlt Castle “Volksbiologische studies” in Leipzig from. Arlts was a detailed breakdown of the distribution of residence of people who had given in the census of 1933 they were Jewish faith, as well as those who ordered a part of the “Jewish race” Arlt due to further investigations. Data of these people registered Arlt on index cards and was the residence concentration of georeferencing found by him – a procedure which allowed a selection of data of the individual and on the SD as a model for Eichmann task was recorded (a discussions with the SD is documented in the following):

“Dr Arlt’s old PG.” He has excellent knowledge of Judaism. While he has his time in Leipzig all full, Dreiviertel-, half , and quarter-Jews captured karteimäßig categorically. This work has carried on its own initiative Dr Arlt. He intends to build up the same file first for Upper Silesia and finally all over Silesia and asked for the support of s.d.. (…) Dr Arlt offered rhymes to teach some SD members. (…) The Refererent II 112 of SD-OA South East has already started in touch at the 3.7.36 with Dr Arlt. “A direct debate with the head of Department II 112 in Berlin is considered to be appropriate.”[6]

In August 1936, Arlt moved after graduating from Leipzig to Wrocław; in the local RPA, he became head of Office and district training manager in the University of Breslau was Arlt of lecturer for “Ethnography“. He was appointed there on a proposal by Martin Staemmler as its representative in the District Office for racial and population. In addition to family policy and racist propaganda, he carried out special orders for the oberpräsident Wagner in border policy.[3]

Arlt published an anti-Semitic magazine, which was later acquired by the high school of the Nazi party by the Technical Director, Kurt Wagner later, his racist theories among other things in the world.

1937  in the senior management of the higher SS and police leader

the Polish-speaking Arlt in the SS was discontinued in 1937, where he worked in the command staff of the higher SS and police leader (HSSPF) Upper Silesia. At the same time began his collaboration with the Department Canaris.[3]

Information for a possible war against Poland is gathered at the SD from 1937. A special investigation book Poland, which roughly included 61,000 names of Polish intelligence , was laid. Franz Six built up in the District II the Zentralstelle II P (Poland). Before the establishment of the Central Office II P (Poland) of the SD had made Herbert Hagen thoughts about “Connectivity to Poland” and noted, “that it comes to it, to know people that can give accurate information about the complete collection of Judaism in Poland in Poland”.[7]

“Race, people and heritage in Silesia”

Early 1938 the Gauleiter complained Silesia Josef Wagner at the Reich Ministry for science, education and national education, that the racial composition of Silesia in popular and half-scientific depictions often wrong is: Silesia “Nordic”, not “ostisch”, this is scientifically proven by studies Egon Freiherr von Eickstedts and his staff. He demanded to stop such representations in the future. Fritz Arlt was responsible for further information.

The Reich Ministry commissioned the publication information in Berlin Dahlem in cooperation with the North Eastern German Research Foundation (NODFG), who were responsible for the control of scientific publications in the field of Eastern research , to make knowledgeable. Johannes Papritz of publication information asked by Rassenkundlern such as Otto RECHE [[

his students like Hermann Aubin, Walter Kuhn and Erich Keyser in good hands. Year of his death published Hermann Aubin and Erich Keyser, the first volume of “Journal of Research on the East”]
and Fritz Lenz and Hermann Aubin to the Wroclaw’s representative of NODFG, to assess the Silesian investigation. Arlt had in 1938 together with Heinrich Tewes a book series “People, race, heritage value” in Silesia started later but along with Tewes to the publication of the Eickstedtschen Silesia investigation: “Race, people, heritage in Silesia” involved and probably also practical and organizational support provided.
The assessment turned out negative due to personal animosity towards Eickstedt and legitimate methodological criticisms that contributed mainly Lenz, but also Otmar Freiherr von Verschuer . The Reich Ministry disguised its source and added in a statement of the “representative for the entire intellectual and ideological training of the Nazi party”. Arlt was forced 1943 by Fritz Bracht d. 1945 on orders from Berlin by Wagner’s successor to withdraw from the project.
Fritz Bracht, d. 1945
To the district of Bracht were the three concentration camps in Auschwitz. Was placed in his villa in Katowice Himmler’s host, as these on 16 and 17 July 1942, the concentration camps visited. Bracht and Himmler took on 17 July 1942 in the concentration camp Auschwitz-Birkenau, the killing of a shipment of Jews arrived just in part. They were kept in the selection of able-bodied, in the gasification and the evacuation of the gas chamber there. [1] Bracht and Himmler on in the concentration camp Auschwitz-Monowitz. [2] In advance of the Red Army issued Bracht, in his capacity as Reich Defense Commissioner on 21 December 1944 guidelines for the evacuation of detainees and prisoners of war. Using these guidelines, the death marches were organized, where the SS drove prisoners of concentration camps to the west. [3]

A censorship or a withdrawal of the book series was deemed as necessary also because Martin Staemmler , SA man, later father of German Sociology — which had made strong for them. Thus, the censorship attempt to the Ethnography of Silesia, the group around Arlt attempted failed by official and parteiamtliche decrees.[9]

This South-Western investigation, which integrated including the name index of church books by the NSLB, is the counterpart to Arlts Ethnography to “Blooded”.

1938 “Volksbiologische studies”, guide to the mass deportation

in 1938 Arlt became  District Officer of RPAs in the Gau of Silesia. In the same year were Arlts “Volksbiologische studies” published. In these, he proposed to expel the Leipzig Jews as foreigners and according to their places of origin in Poland to deport.

The approach proposed by Arlt was executed in 1938 en masse in an interaction by German and Polish Government by deportations . The response time of the Polish Government in the context of this first mass deportations of 1938 made it clear that the Government of Poland had selectable – rolling census data from 1931 – religion and mother tongue.

In the evening of 29 October 1938, the Polish Government had arranged to deport German citizens of Poznań and Pomerelia . The German Government argued that the expulsion of Arians would exacerbate the clash, which the Polish Government pushed off only Jewish Germans.

Reich gaue and General Government in June 1941

1939 “Population management and care” in the General Government

In August 1939, Arlt in Breslau drew up the so-called Jewish history, for which he has committed the Jewish, deported later to Auschwitz and murdered historian Willy Cohn by subpoena and made its knowledge advantage. He requisitioned relevant books “against Word of honour” from his extensive library.[10]

Arlt took part in the attack on Poland when a battalion of BRZEG.[8] In the attack on Poland confiscated the SD of the data of the census in the University of Warsaw. In October 1939, Arlt head of “Population management and care” under the occupation regime of the Governor General of Poland, Hans Frank was.

From the Warthegau 15,000 Poland in the General Government were deported with the decisive participation of Arthur Greiser in the spring of 1940 monthly. In a film for the BBC[11] , Arlt 1997 expressed in the 31 minute of the 48: 20 minute movie to the victims of these deportations, which were under his responsibility as head of Department of “Population management and care” in the General Government after their arrival:

30: 49 Fritz Arlt: night after night came Evakuiertenzüge, the the so-called resettlement Office, whose Chief Mr Eichmann was in the General Government people were kicked out from the trains, whether in the market place, at the station, where there was any where, and it cared nobody.
31: 13 So so we got a phone call from the district captain, which is about the Governor. He said, now, I no longer know what I should do.
There are again so and so many therefore come I have neither home, nor to food, or otherwise something.
32: 25 When I think of Frank, so I have to say: was a tragic-comic figure. The Frank was a highly intelligent young man, was a good musician, pianist. Mr. Frank was one that placed a very high value on presentation and representation. Why man mocking way called the King of Poland.
35: 12 Dr. Fritz Arlt: helped in dealing with the problem of not willing to umsiedlung Baltic Germans
35: 19 In our interview with him stressed Dr Arlt, that he wanted to help the occupied population.
35: 29 But this letter about the ethnic German farmers shows a different character from Arlt.
35: 43 He has the character of dictation A for Arlt, we reminded him of the existence of this letter.
35: 49 Yes what should I also still questions you!
The letter led to a ring leader (military economic leader) were sent the ethnically German in a German concentration camp 35: 55.
36: 03 Question: but what was for you now a concentration camp?, if they say the mailing should be in a concentration camp?
36: 09 Arlt: What was a concentration camp for me? A warehouse for humans, who somehow dangerous are to the social order and have been concentrated there.
36: 35 Question: you Empfanden at the time that this perhaps is a harsh penalty?
36: 39 Arlt: You excuse that knew the people that which had so probably expect.
Arlt: I know not, I’ve never been warehouse manager.
36: 58 Speakers: Dr Arlt entered the 1932 the Nazi party, ashamed he today in the Nazi party to have been?
36: 59 Arlt: Am I not ashamed, that I became a Nazi, but I definitely went with an absolute reflection of the situation analysis out to.

The medical and nursing homes, elderly and ill patients were murdered in which, for example, the sick of the psychiatric institution Chelm on 12 January 1940 were under the Division “Population resources and care”.[12]

In July 1940, Arlt in the “Volkspolitischen information service issued by him” the Government of the General Government, internal management “Population management and care” attested (Cracow 1940) overview of the conditions of the population in the General Government and the occupied territory overpopulation: the area of the General Government was less than one-fifth of good arable land, rich population density but with 126 people per square kilometre almost to that of the German Empire used. “This is too much in terms of the natural resources of soil, as well as in terms of its industrial processing and creation.” (…) “The General Government is an übervölkertes area” (p. 20). “The Bevölkerungskundler know from history and the practical population policy three ways to solve the problem of overpopulation”, Arlt went on: the first possibility is that the “Decimation of the number of people through migration on time (Saisonwanderung)”. This was done through mass roundup of forced laborers for the German defence and agriculture. The second “solution” is called the “final emigration”Arlt. These, Arlt, Castle is however not possible by the war.

On the third solution, the physical destruction, Arlt pointed in the form of reflections. They concerned the increase in the mortality of the most vulnerable victims of the Nazi regime, the infants and over 65 years of age, and the “Number of itself life poor, the infirm and the sick in the other layers of the age” (p. 9). Arlt described them as “the subject most the the extinction process layers”[13] Arlt-Director of the Central Institute for research was later in Upper Silesia and is also head of the Branch Office of Upper Silesia in the Reich Commissar for the consolidation of German nationhood.

Arlt was transferred by the Wehrmacht in 1940 in the SS.[8]

In preparation for the 22 June 1941: the “volunteer station East”

The head of SS head, Gottlob Berger[14] commissioned his friend Fritz Arlt to form “Volunteer station East”.

[15] Foreign volunteers of the Waffen-SS from Eastern Europe non-Russian battle units in the armed forces were combined in “Volunteer station East”. * Reiner Olzscha,und Obersturmbannführer im Amt D 3 des SS-Hauptamtes, is still known from this team Julius and military leader in the D 3 of SS headbecause he has operated well journalistically.[16] He was responsible for Muslim soldiers of the SS and fled so at the end of the war together with his ideological leader, Mufti, in the West.[17]
Olzscha Reiner (born July 26 1912 , died.?) – German physician, writer, explorer, member of the SS , head of the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Turkestan , while the commander of the Combat SS Wschodniotureckiego Association at the end of World War II After the war he was arrested in the area of Saxony by the NKVD . His further fate is unknown.

Upper Silesian Land Research Institute

1941 Arlt built up, after he through Bracht when Stabsfüher of B.d.R.RFSS/RKF was acquired, the Hauptamt Volkstum issues, school and education, as well as the Upper Silesian Research Institute.[8]

Retreat to the front [Edit]

1943, Arlt was intrigue in the Nazi party and the German Ethnography victim according to its own. He volunteered to the troop, was trained to assault guns and took part in the battles of the SS-Panzer Division “Das Reich” . He was wounded in 1944 and took over control of the Volunteer Center East (for the Balts, Ukrainians, Weißruthenen, Cossacks) of the SS. When the war ended he was taken prisoner with a Ukrainian volunteer unit.[8]

After 1 October 1944: the “refugee control centre”

Thankfully, Berger was the organizational creator of the Waffen-SS; Berger was appointed in addition to its already diverse functions on 1 October 1944 by Heinrich Himmler as head of the war prison system. In this role, Berger had allowed in April 1945 that American prisoners were supplied by food convoys under Ernst-Robert Grawitz of the German Red Cross . “Volunteer station East” became the “refugee control centre”.

In November 1944, SS – Obersturmbannführer was nominated for promotion to Standartenführer by his superiors, SS-Obergruppenführer and General of the police of Ernst Heinrich Schmauser,dead 1945. End January 1945 but became the application for transport, since he was still too young, rejected. In January 1945 was the 14th Waffen grenadier Division of the SS (Galician) as 1. newly-formed Ukrainian Division of the Ukrainian national army , a formality which took place only on paper (but later saved the lives of the soldiers). There came the Division in British captivity in May 1945. In contrast to most other Eastern European voluntary associations, their loved ones for the most part not to the Soviet Union were delivered, but were allowed to emigrate to Canada and Australia.

in 1945, the “German Red Cross” was largely dissolved by the occupying forces, in the French and the Soviet occupation zone, the DRC was prohibited. In the new application to the Central Committee of the national Red Cross societies of 26 June 1952, the fact was described as follows: “these in 1921 under the name of ‘ German Red Cross ‘ founded national company, which extended its activities to the whole of the German region, was dissolved in the course of the summer of 1945 by a decision of the occupation authority.”.[18]

After 1945

Arlt was founded in 1949 in Munich as a so-called “followersentnazifiziert; previously, he had drawn up studies on ostpolitische relations of the Germans and the psychological warfare for the Americans.[19]

After 1945 Arlt contributed with his friend Schelsky and Wagner to build the Search service of the German Red Cross . From 1954 to 1957, Arlt headed the Department “Education and socio-political questions” at the Institute of the German economy in Cologne.

On January 10, 1944, Gerhard Utikal in the party Office discussed the impact of V Guide available 7/43 on the “representative of the leader for the monitoring of the entire intellectual and ideological training and education of the Nazi party”.

At first, his skills on the crawl of possess personnel in Wehrmacht service offices and regional on the Imperial commissions of Ostland and Ukraine were limited; later, the powers were expanded regionally. According to the propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels, von Unruh was the ideal man for the job because he is not only military, but also a convinced Nazi. Von Unruh was supported also by the party Chancellery of Martin Bormann; his representative in the Office was the Deputy Gauleiter of Upper Silesia and former Office Director Albert Hoffmann.

Because of the title granted to him and his good relations with Gauleiter Hugo Jury and Gauhauptmann of Lower Danube Josef Mayer, he was on 1 Oktober 1943 with the leadership of the medical and nursing homes Gugging and wall-Öhling entrusted. Even under the current and 1941 T4 action about 675 patients were in the Nazi killing Hartheim been spent. The two former prison director were limited to administrative tasks, and it was broadcast as medical director of the medical service. Soon after, rumors surfaced that would now euthanized In November 1944 it was also practiced in the prison wall-Öhling. With the help of the Department Executive Josef Utz and the nurses employed there by him, at least 39 patients have been with pills and injections to death. . He spoke openly of it, that among the hatchlings “many useless eaters” to give, while thousands of soldiers would die and “these useless eaters were away so”. Gelny enjoyed the support of the Berlin euthanasia bureaucracy and saw no reason to conceal his actions. In the summer of 1944 in Gugging was a gathering of many psychiatrists from the “Old Reich” instead. . He used this forum for a demonstration of his electric killing apparatus.

After the end of 1944 by Wall Öhling again returned to Gugging patients killings suddenly stopped in on Wall Öhling. In early April 1945, he returned to the bike back to wall-Öhling and killed himself before the war ended with the participation of many nurses to patients with a further 149 from him for killing instrument converted stun gun. As he told the persons entrusted with administrative duties, Dr. Scharpf, he wanted to murder yet another 700-800 Pfleglinge, but this was zunichtegemacht by the rapid advance of the Russian army. Due to the number of deaths is expected that a very high number of patients (600) were murdered in the two institutions.

After the war, he went into hiding. He succeeded in 1945 to escape to Syria and further into Iraq, where he practiced as a doctor again For prosecution, he could not be held accountable.

Nazi Euthanasia

Mauz, Max de Crinis, Kihn, Pohlisch and Schneider get together with anthropologists and two directors of mental hospitals to draft a formal law concerning euthanasia.

The panel of at least 20 includes Drs. Heyde, Mauz, Nitsche (editor of the Journal of Mental Hygiene), Panse, Pohlisch, Reisch, Schneider (professor of psychiatry at University of Heidelberg and teacher of killing procedures to younger psychiatrists), Werner Villinger (professor of psychiatry at the University of Breslau) and Zucker all psychiatrists.

This worked Pohlisch about 400 registration of patients from German and Austrian medical and nursing homes and pronounced in some cases killing recommendations. Both p. were also Pohlisch by the central departments T4 by their expert opinions released, probably because their opinion did not meet the expectations of the central station.[4] Pohlisch collaborated mid-1940 a euthanasia law (“law on euthanasia for terminally ill”) which has been adopted but never legally valid in October 1940.[5] On December 4, 1940 called Pohlisch in a lecture on the “Erbpflege in the Third Reich” at the Bonn University: “such… Plants that become disturbingly noticeable in our national body to render harmless or to eradicate.” [6]

At later trials in Germany it was proven that at the death camps of Belzec, Sobibor and Treblinka special photographers also made pictures of people being killed.)

Dr Werner Heyde . KZ Commandant & Insp. KL, Theodor Eicke was his patient.

from Eicke, De.wikipedia:

Four days later, Eicke was taken into “Protective custody”. He described the arrest in a letter to Himmler: “21 3, 1933, in the morning 10 o’clock, appeared 4 detective in my apartment and declared me arrested. I grabbed my pistol and declared that they were probably a dead, but no living Eicke out of the House, but I was prepared 12 noon to appear voluntarily in the prison point less than my Ehrenwortes, because an SS-Oberführer can be not caught. After a long time the gentlemen withdrew.”[18] Eicke reacted to the arrest led by Gauleiter Bürckel in the way with a two-day hunger strike. Then he was committed to the “psychiatric and neuro-psychiatric clinic of the University of *Würzburg”. On April 3 the de-listing of Eickes SS, Himmler ordered Eicke had not fulfilled his given word of honour. Himmler attributed this to the shattered state of health and a nervous breakdown of Eickes.Letter of Eickes to Himmler by May 16, 1933 (excerpt)From psychiatry, Eicke turned several times in writing to Himmler. These letters differ significantly from other written statements of Eickes, who normally very spontaneously and without much regard for spelling wrote.[19] Eicke asked to set aside his “protective custody”: this was necessary, “since I lost soldier Adolf Hitler’s my existence and must now send my family to the shovel. Only a few days ago my family told me that she was money without a penny and must feed from the rest-Winterkartoffeln”.[20]

Brief Eickes an Himmler vom 16. Mai 1933 (Ausschnitt) Aus der Psychiatrie wandte sich Eicke mehrfach schriftlich an Himmler. Diese Briefe unterscheiden sich deutlich von sonstigen schriftlichen Äußerungen Eickes, der normalerweise sehr spontan und ohne viel Rücksicht auf Rechtschreibregeln schrieb.[19] Eicke bat um die Aufhebung seiner „Schutzhaft“: Dies sei notwendig, „da ich als Soldat Adolf Hitlers meine Existenz verlor und nun für meine Familie zur Schaufel greifen muß. Erst vor wenigen Tagen teilte mir meine Familie mit, daß sie ohne einen Pfennig Geld sei und sich von den restigen Winterkartoffeln ernähren muß“.[20] Als Reaktion auf Eickes Briefe arrangierte Himmler zunächst nur die finanzielle Unterstützung von Eickes Familie. Eickes behandelnder Arzt, Werner Heyde, schickte am 22. April folgenden Befund an Himmler: „Die mehrwöchigen Beobachtungen und vielfachen Untersuchungen haben […] keinerlei Anzeichen einer Geistes- oder Gehirnkrankheit bei E. erkennen lassen, es sind auch nicht die Anzeigen einer abnormalen Persönlichkeitsveranlagung im Sinne der Psychopathie erkennbar gewesen. Herr E. hat sich hier musterhaft geführt und fiel durch sein ruhiges, beherrschtes Wesen sehr angenehm auf, er machte keinesfalls den Eindruck einer intrigierenden Persönlichkeit.“[21] Heyde trat am 1. Mai 1933 in die NSDAP ein, nach seinen eigenen späteren Angaben auf Empfehlung von Eicke. Ab 1939 war Heyde in führender Funktion an der Ermordung von Kranken und Behinderten in der Aktion T4 beteiligt. Himmler antwortete Heyde am 2. Juni: „Ich habe noch einmal Zeit darüber verstreichen lassen müssen, da die Beruhigung in Ludwigshafen noch nicht vor sich gegangen ist. Persönlich bin ich überzeugt, dass Eicke vom Gau Pfalz manches Unrecht geschehen ist […]. Ich gebe gern mein Einverständnis, dass Eicke zu Pfingsten aus der Klinik entlassen wird, doch ich bitte Sie, Eicke zuzureden, dass er für die Zeit, die er noch in Ludwigshafen zubringt, absolut sich still verhält […]. Ich habe vor, Eicke in irgend einer, möglichst Staatsstellung zu verwenden, bloss darf er mir die Sache nicht zu schwer und unmöglich machen.“[German Wikipedia, Eicke]


The Cornides Report, by Wilhelm Kornides. Wehrmacht NCO who testified on the Holocaust  he witnessed.

On August 31, 1942, –Cornides saw an incoming deportation train with 35 cattle wagons as seven non-commissioned officer in transit at a railway stop in RAWA-Ruska in the General Government, crammed full of Jews on the way to the Belzec extermination camp. A duty officer at the station confirmed Cornides on demand casual that the occupants of the transport would be murdered. Later on the same day, Cornides saw several trains returning empty from Belzec. Cornides spoke with accompanying police officers of one of these trains: “grinning one says: ‘ you probably know where we come from?” “Well, for us the work is.'” Cornides by RAWA-Ruska of towards Lublin continued in the evening. After a few kilometres, the train immediately happened the extermination camp, which was indeed covered by trees, the fellow passengers but clarified Cornides about the purpose of the institution and mentioned the fact of the gasification and the smoking crematoria. Cornides finally saw a storage shed filled “with dress bunches up on the roof” with their own eyes. in 1959, the historian of Hans Rothfels published the report for the first time and commented on in the introduction, this evidence that “was common in the General Government to the knowledge of operations – what you already could expect – and in any case relatively low effort was needed to get them on the track.” “But only a few will have had the will or even the desire to set the seen and heard in writing” (quarterly issues of contemporary history, issue 3, 1959, p. 333).

Karl Wahl (24 September 1892 – 18 February 1981) was the Nazi Gauleiter of Swabia from the Gau inception in 1928 until the collapse of Nazi Germany in 1945.

He nevertheless held a close friendship to Auxiliary Bishop Franz Xaver Eberle (1874-1951) of Augsburg throughout the time of the Third Reich and Hitler himself complimented Wahl in 1937, saying “Wahl, your auxiliary bishop is the most sympathetic priest that I have ever met”.[8]

3½ years for Wahl; witness during the Nuremberg trials.Wahl’s own statement after the war was that “nobody could be found in Swabia who had personally been harmed by him”, but makes no reference to the last 500 Jewish citizens of Augsburg, who disappeared in concentration camps in the years following the Kristallnacht, when the Augsburg Synagogue was destroyed.[2]

Only one trial was ever held by a German court for crimes committed at Belsen, at Jena in 1949, and the defendant was acquitted. More than 200 other SS members who were at Belsen have been known by name but never had to stand trial.[24] Moreover, no Wehrmacht soldier was ever put on trial for crimes committed against the inmates of the POW camps at Bergen-Belsen and in the region around it,[20] despite the fact that the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg had found in 1946 that the treatment of Soviet POWs by the Wehrmacht constituted a war crime.[23] [BERGEN BELSEN, wiki.]


In May 1943, the SS – Obersturmbannführer Adolf Haas b. 1893- ? missing) with “construction”command arrived in Bergen-Belsen, which was intended as a “Stay-camp” for prominent Jewish prisoners. Haas was incompetent as first Commander of Bergen-Belsen. He built barracks without appropriate sanitation. This decision later favoured the spread of epidemics in the camps.

On September 1, 1939, Adolf Hitler ordered the beginning of the already planned “euthanasia” by personal Decree. In the “euthanasia” gas murder institutes and other hospitals and nursing homes, some 300,000 people by gas, drugs or targeted Verhungernlassen were murdered.   It’s far more than 70,000, which only entails those killed before Hitler halted the euthanasia program – after a public outcry.

Similar to when the action 14f13 allows also for the Aktion Brandt isn’t exactly determine the number of victims because many killings as such are neither registered as such or were recognizable. In contrast to the action T4, statistical documents are not preserved. At least 30,000 victims are appreciated. The victims include Ernst Lossa and Marianne Schönfelder.


Hans Krüger (6 July 1902 – 3 November 1971) was a former member of the NSDAP party and other Nazi organizations who served as a judge in occupied Poland during the Second World  war]

Gerhard Kittel (September 23, 1888, Breslau—July 11, 1948) was a German Protestant theologian, lexicographer of biblical languages, and open anti-Semite.[1] He is best known in academic circles for his Theologisches Wörterbuch zum Neuen Testament (Theological Dictionary of the New Testament).   The son of acclaimed Old Testament scholar Rudolf Kittel, he married Hanna Untermeier in 1914, but there were no children from the union. In May 1933 he joined the National Socialist German Workers Party. A Professor of Evangelical Theology and New Testament at the University of Tübingen, he published “scientific” studies depicting the Jewish people as the historical enemy of Germany, Christianity, and European culture in general. From 1940 to 1943 he actively assisted in the mass murder of Jews in Poland.[citation needed]   In 1945, after Hitler’s Third Reich capitulated to the Allies, Kittel was arrested by the French occupying forces, removed from office and interned at Balingen. William F. Albright wrote the International War Crimes Tribunal in Nuremberg in early 1946, “In view of the terrible viciousness of his attacks on Judaism and the Jews, which continues at least until 1943, Gerhard Kittel must bear the guilt of having contributed more, perhaps, than any other Christian theologian to the mass murder of Jews by Nazis.” Nonetheless, in 1946 Kittel was released pending his trial. He was forbidden to enter Tübingen until 1948, however. From 1946 to 1948 he was a Seelsorger (soul carer) in Beuron. In 1948 he was allowed back into Tübingen, but died that year before the criminal proceedings against him could be resumed.

history of the new Germany , Kittel was employee of the Munich branch of the Institute for the study of the Jewish question since 1936.

From the autumn of 1939 to April 1943 he was also the Chair of theology in Vienna.*

All of these activities were a struggle against Jewish children, women and men on explicitly racial bio logistical basis.Kittel was like all employees of such institutions on the information service of the Reich Security main office (RSHA), which was the basis for the corresponding messages in the magazine world (from 1941 scientific quarterly journal of the Institute for the study of the Jewish question), in detail about the disenfranchisement, ghettoisation and “Resettlement” of European Judaism informs (prohibition of work, nutrition reduction, restrictions of freedom of movement, establishment of ghettos, Jewish legislation in South-Eastern Europe, etc.). The founding Conference of the Frankfurt Institute discussed the “final solution of the Jewish question” in several scientific papers. Klaus Schickert formulated in his contribution of the Jewish laws in South-Eastern Europe: “Things at an increasing speed of their final push against.”[8] Kittel expressly shared the objectives of these scientific institutions: the “Elimination of Judaism” and the “final solution of the Jewish question”. Kittle worked in the Department of Jewish research of the Imperial Institute and made reports about the Jewish ethnic groups, whose racial Herkunft was unclear there among others. These reports were part of the basis for decisions of the RSHA over the “special treatment” that murder or sparing this Jewish groups. In one of these opinions from the year 1943, Kittel proposed racial studies of the Iranian Jews in France and a special treatment of the so-called Mountain Jews in the Caucasus.[9]


After the war, his family claimed that Kittle was “shaken”, as a son–the mass murder has informed him. a statement not credible in the face of his activities and contacts.[10]Kittels “racial religion research” was a “genuinely Socialist Jewish research” with the goal to identify the Jews and the Jewish as opponents and enemies and “eradicate”. In the context of the conferences visited by Kittel and in magazines read by him the speech was again literally by the “final solution of the Jewish question”. The preserved materials while showing that the murder of Jews is not mentioned. Nevertheless, the issue will be discussed in the Conference for the establishment of the Frankfurt Institute 1941 that the complete elimination and expulsion of the Jews from Europe, not the ‘Jewish question’ finally solve. Judaism completely based out of Europe must therefore at least completely be isolated because it must be regarded as a cooker for a persistent threat. That this assessment is reported by Gerhard Kittel, lit from a lecture about the history of Judaism, he held on March 22, 1943 at the University of Vienna and later published: “break down the door of the ghetto was the Christian Occident…” In reality, it was a door of the demons; in reality she was not in a Paradise Valley, but in a valley of the chaos and of the curse and the horror.”[11]Im Jahr 1946 urteilte der international anerkannte Altorientalist W.F. Albright: “In view of the terrible viciousness of his attacks on Judaism and the Jews, which continues at least until 1943, Gerhard Kittel must bear the guilt of having contributed more, perhaps, than any other Christian theologian to the mass murder of Jews by Nazis.” [12]Auf der Grundlag
