Disgraceful beliefs of the Talmud

The full text of the Babylonian Talmud: http://www.come-and-hear.com/talmud/index.html

Search in the Babylonian Talmud: http://www.come-and-hear.com/tindex.html

1. The Eternal Jew is, unfortunately for him, the product of the Talmud. [Babylonian Talmud, page XII.]

2. The Jews refer to the remainder of Earth’s inhabitants, the non Jewish peoples, as gentiles, goyim. Observe what the Jewish Talmud teaches the Jews about the non Jewish majority, that is, those who are not a part of Jehova’s so called Chosen People:

3. The Jews are called human beings, but the non Jews are not humans! They are beasts! [Talmud: Baba mezia, 114b.]

4. The non Jew is like a dog! Yes, the Jewish scripture teaches us to honour the dog more than the non Jew! [Ereget Raschi Erod, 22, 30.]

5. Even though god created the non Jew, they are still animals in human form! It is not becoming for a Jew to be served by an animal! Therefore he will be served by animals in human form! [Midrasch Talpioth, page 255.]

6. A pregnant non Jew is no better than a pregnant animal! [Coschen hamischpat, 405.]

7. The souls of non Jews come from impure sprits, and are called pigs! Jalkut Rubeni gadol, 12b.]

8. Although the non Jew has the same body structure as the Jew, they compare with the Jew like a monkey to a human! [Schene luchoth haberith, page 250 b.]

9. If you eat with a non Jew, it is the same as eating with a dog! [Tosapoth, Jebamoth, 94b.]

10. If a Jew has a non Jewish servant or maid who dies, one should not express sympathy to the Jew! You should tell the Jew: God will replace your loss, just as if one of his oxen or asses had died! [Jore dea, 377, 1.]

11. Sex between non Jews is like sex between animals! [Talmud Sanhedrin, 74b.]

12. It is permitted to take the body and the life of a non Jew! [Sepher ikkarim, III, 25.]

13. It is the law to kill anyone who denies the Torah! The Christians belong to the ones who deny the Torah! [Coschen hamischpat, 425; Hagah 425, 5.]

14. You may kill outright a heretic non Jew with your own hands! [Talmud, Abodah Zara, 4b.]

15. Every Jew, who spills the blood of the godless non Jews, is doing the same as making a sacrifice to god! [Bammidber raba, 21; Jalkut, 772.]

16. The Talmud is Judaism’s holiest book! Its authority takes precedence over the Old Testament in Judaism! [Erubin, 21b.]

17. Whosoever disobeys the rabbis deserves death and will be punished by being boiled in hot excrement in hell! [Erubin, 21b.]

18. If a Jew is tempted to do evil, he should go to a city where he is not known and do the evil there! [Moed Kattan, 17a.]

19. Jews are divine! If a non Jew hits a Jew, the non Jew must be killed! Hitting a Jew is the same as hitting god! [Sanhedrin, 58b.]

20. It is recommended for Jews to cheat non Jews! [Sanhedrin, 57a.]

21. A Jew need not pay a non Jew the wages owed to him for work! Jews have superior legal status! [Baba Kamma, 37b.]

22. Jews may steal from non Jews! [Baba Mezia, 24a.]

23. If a Jew finds an object lost by a non Jew, it does not have to be returned! [Baba Kamma, 113b.]

24. God will not spare a Jew who marries his daughter to an old man, or takes a wife for his infant son, or returns a lost article to a non Jew! [Sanhedrin, 76a.]

25. Jews may rob and kill non Jews! When a Jew murders a non Jew, there will be no death penalty! What a Jew steals from a non Jew he may keep! [Sanhedrin 57a.]

26. Non Jews are outside the protection of the Law, and god has exposed their money to Israel! [Baba Kamma, 37b.]

27. Jews may lie to non Jews! [Baba Kamma, 113a.]

28. Jews may use lies to circumvent a non Jew! Non Jewish children are subhuman! All non Jew children are animals! [Yebamoth, 98a.]

29. Non Jewish girls are in a state of filth from birth! [Abodah Zarah, 36b.]

30. Non Jews prefer sex with cows! [Abodah Zarah, 22a-22b.]

31. The vessels of non Jews impart a worsened flavour to the food cooked in them! [Abodah Zarah, 67b.]

32. The mother of Jesus Christ was a whore! [Sanhedrin, 106a.]

33. A passage from Sanhedrin, 106 gloats over the early age at which Jesus died!

34. Sanhedrin, 43a says that Jesus was a sorcerer, and that he was executed because he practiced sorcery!

35. Gittin, 57a says that Jesus is currently being boiled in hot excrement!

36. Sanhedrin, 43a says that Jesus deserved execution!

37. Sanhedrin, 90a says that those who read the New Testament will have no portion in the world to come!

38. Shabbath, 116a says that Jews must destroy the books of the Christians!

39. Gittin, 69a says that, to heal his flesh, a Jew should take dust that lies within the shadow of an outdoor toilet, mix it with honey, and eat it!

40. Shabbath, 41a gives The Law Regulating How To Piss In A Holy Way

41. Yebamoth, 63a states that Adam had sex with all the animals in the Garden of Eden!

42. Yebamoth, 63a declares that agriculture is the lowest of occupations!

43. Sanhedrin, 55b states that a Jew may marry a three year old girl!

44. Sanhedrin, 54b states that a Jew may have sex with a child as long as the child is less than nine years old!

45. Kethuboth, 11b assures us that when a grown up man has sex with a little girl, it is nothing!

46. Yebamoth, 59b assures us that a woman who has had sex with a beast is eligible to marry a Jewish priest! A woman who has sex with a demon is also eligible to marry a Jewish priest!

47. Abodah Zarah, 17a states that there is not a whore in the world that Rabbi Eleazar has not had sex with!

48. Hagigah, 27a states that no rabbi can ever go to hell!

49. Baba Mezia, 59b tells us of how a rabbi once debated with god and defeated him, with god admitting that the rabbi won the debate!

50. Gittin, 70a teaches us that, on coming from an outdoor toilet, a man should not have sex until he has waited long enough to walk half a mile, because the demon of the privy is with him for that time, and that if he does have sex, his children will be epileptic!

51. Gittin, 69b assures us that in order to heal the disease of pleurisy, a Jew should take the excrement of a white dog and knead it with balsam, and eat it, although it may loosen the limbs!

52. Pesahim, 111a explains how it is forbidden for dogs, women or palm trees to pass between two men, nor may others walk between dogs, women or palm trees, and that special dangers are involved if the women are menstruating or sitting at a crossroads!

53. Menahoth, 43b-44a states that a Jewish man must say the following prayer every day: Thank you, god, for not making me into a non Jew, a woman, or a slave!

54. Shabbath, 86a-86b informs us that, because Jews are holy, they can not have sex during the day unless the house can be made dark, and that a Jewish scholar can have sex during the day if he uses his garment like a tent to make it dark! Gittin, 57b claims that four billion Jews were killed by the Romans in the city of Bethar! Gittin, 58a claims that 16 million Jewish children were wrapped in scrolls and burned alive by the Romans!

55. Abodah Zarah, 70a states that the question was asked of the rabbi whether some wine stolen in Pumbeditha might be used, or if it was defiled due to the fact that the thieves might have been non Jews, since a non Jew touching wine would make the wine unclean. The rabbi says not to worry, that the wine is permissible for Jewish use because the majority of the thieves in Pumbeditha, the place where the wine was stolen, are Jews!

56. Kallah, 51a teaches that god approves of rabbis who lie: The elders were once sitting in the gate when two young lads passed by; one covered his head and the other uncovered his head. Of him who uncovered his head (Jesus Christ), Rabbi Eliezer remarked: He is a bastard! Rabbi Joshua remarked: He is the son of a child conceived during a woman’s menstrual period! Rabbi Akiba said: He is both a bastard and a son of a child conceived during a woman’s menstrual period! Rabbis Eliezer and Joshua said to Akiba: What has induced you to contradict the opinion of your colleagues? Akiba replied: I will prove it concerning him. He went to the lad’s mother (Mary, mother of Jesus) and found her sitting in the market selling beans. Akiba said to her: My daughter, if you will answer the question I will put to you, I will grant you eternal life. She said to him: Swear it to me! Rabbi Akiba, taking the oath with his lips but annulling it in his heart, said to her: What is the status of your son? She replied: When I entered the bridal chamber I was menstruating, and my husband kept away from me; but my best man had sex with me, and this son was born to me. Consequently, the child was both a bastard and the son of a child conceived during a woman’s menstrual period! It was widely declared: Blessed be the god of Israel who revealed his secret to Rabbi Akiba!

57. Soferim, 15, rule 10 says that even the best of the non Jews should all be killed! (Israelis annually take part in a national pilgrimage to the grave of Simon ben Yohai, to honour this rabbi who advocated the extermination of non Jews!

Neither catholic popes nor protestant leaders have insisted that the rabbis of Judaism repudiate or condemn the Talmud! On the contrary, the heads of Jewish Christianity have urged the followers of Christ to obey, honour and support the followers of the Talmud!

[1] On December 17, 1862, General Ulysses Grant wrote to the Assistant Adjutant General of the US Army:

„I have long since believed that in spite of all the vigilance that can be infused into post commanders, the specie regulations of the Treasury Department have been violated, and that mostly by the Jews and other unprincipled traders. So well satisfied have I been of this that I instructed the commanding officer at Columbus to refuse all permits to Jews to come South, and I have frequently had them expelled from the department. But they come in with their carpet-sacks in spite of all that can be done to prevent it. The Jews seem to be a privileged class that can travel anywhere. They will land at any woodyard on the river and make their way through the country. If not permitted to buy cotton themselves, they will act as agents for someone else, who will be at a military post with a Treasury permit to receive cotton and pay for it in Treasury notes which the Jew will buy at an agreed rate, paying gold.“

Also, on December 17, 1862, General Ulysses S. Grant issued General Orders No. 11. This order banished all Jews from Tennessee’s western military.

General Orders No. 11 declared: „1. The Jews, as a class, violating every regulation of trade established by the Treasury Department, are hereby expelled from the Department.

„2. Within 24 hours from the receipt of this order by Post Commanders, they will see that all of this class of people are furnished with passes required to leave, and anyone returning after such notification, will be arrested and held in confinement until an opportunity occurs of sending them out as prisoners, unless furnished with permits from these headquarters.

„3. No permits will be given these people to visit headquarters for the purpose of making personal application for trade permits.

„By order of Major Gen. Grant.

Germany Overcomes Jewry

Lecture: The Jew, the cause of this war

In this war for the life or death of the German people, we must daily remember that Jewry unleashed this war on us. It makes no difference whether he faced us as a Bolshevist or as a plutocrat, as a Freemason or with some other disguise, or even without a mask at all: he always is the same. He is the one who incited and confused the various peoples opposing us today, making them into more or less helpless tools of international Jewry. Particularly in this fifth year of war, we may not permit ourselves to overlook the Jewish question in any way.

Before the takeover of power…

Before the takeover of power, Germany was wide open to the Jews. They could live here unhindered and were as free as all other citizens. National Socialism, however, declared war on the Jews and immediately after the takeover of power the Jew was excluded from every part of German national life. You who do not know what life in Germany was like before 1933 cannot even imagine the radical changes that brought about in the entire public life of our people. Jewish teachers disappeared from schools, Jewish attorneys from courtrooms, Jewish doctors from hospitals, but above all Jewish profiteers and big capitalists from economic life. Many of you will ask how all this could happen, how could the Jew infiltrate these positions in such numbers, although he was only a small number in comparison to the German people. Why must he think and act differently than we? This evening meeting will provide an answer. Only one who knows the Jew can fight against him and win.

Jewry — a racial mixture

We still meet individuals of our people who see the Jew only as a member of another religion. That is a serious mistake that has to be completely eliminated. The Jews have known how to conceal themselves by using the lie they themselves invented, so successfully that in the past generation it was thought unrefined to even mention the Jewish question. Today, however, we know that Jewry is most deeply distinguished from the German people by its racial nature. The NSDAP has repeated this fact since it began its existence. In hard, pitiless struggle it educated the German people about the true nature of Jewry. Today we know that the Jew does not belong racially to us or other European peoples. He is also not a separate race as such, but rather a mixing of races that occurred a long time ago, long before our era. This racial mixture includes characteristics of the Middle Eastern and Asian race, but also Negro characteristics and various other elements. The interaction of these various races determined the character and appearance of the Jew, as we still know at least from reports and pictures.

He first came to Germany as a livestock dealer or peddler. We know that Eastern Jews first crossed the boarder with caftan, hair locks and a black cap, intending to slowly but surely to transform themselves into what they thought were ordinary Europeans. They still seemed foreign to the German people. They had bowed legs, they mumbled, and always appeared unwashed to us. As they began their social rise they showed off, the women, but also the men, wearing excessive jewelry. Over time, many learned to conceal themselves more cleverly. They learned how to hide their physical failings through fine clothing and elegant behavior, becoming even more dangerous for us. Two statements by great Germans reveal to us the character of the Jew. Philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer called them “the great masters of lying” and Königsberg philosopher Kant said that they were “a people of merchants and swindlers.” Their goal is entirely directed at gaining possessions, and particularly money. They see that as the best fortune they can have. That is why they want to rule all other peoples on the earth. To encourage this drive for world domination, they are always reminded of their law, also called the Torah, which is reflected in the Talmud. There it is forever ordained that Jews are the chosen people, that they are the leaders of this world, and that the universe itself exists only because of the Jews. Their God Jahwe gives them rule over all Gentiles, who should be persecuted, hated, held in contempt. The Jew may kill, rape, and corrupt the blood of Gentiles. All that earns Jahwe’s praise and serves the goal of becoming rulers of the whole world. The Jew should be a trouble-maker and warmonger, he should build a state within the state. He should jewdify Gentile life, but should remain a Jew himself. As long as he maintains the purity of his own blood, he can murder, steal, be a profiteer, lie, intentionally mislead, bribe, and smuggle. The Jews gave these laws to themselves and they have lived according to them for centuries. It is obvious to us that people of this nature do not see work as a duty, something with great value. The Jew prefers to engage in commerce and leaves work to others. He does not want to build values, but rather to heap up money that serves the goal of world domination.

In the following story we will see the characteristics of the Jew that we have just discussed. A German craftsman’s son Hans Unwirsch and the Jew Moses Freudenstein have earned their diplomas on the same day. Both young boys are going back home.

Reading: Gold — the Jew’s only goal!

Master Samuel Freudenstein was waiting the return of his son as eagerly as Hans Unwirsch’s relatives were awaiting him. He paced restlessly through the house, moving boxes around, poking into forgotten corners, as if he wanted to conduct an inventory of his possessions and his thousands of commercial items. He talked to himself. The big decision that he had thought about so long, and which he had now made, left him almost drunk. Around 11 he sent his maid Esther to a back room and locked the doors. He took out secret keys and opened secret drawers in his desk. He opened a secret door in a secret cabinet. It sounded like gold and silver, it rustled like government bonds and other valuable papers, and between the clanking and rustling Father Samuel said:

“He was born in a dark corner, he will long for the light; he has lived in a dark house, he will live in a palace. They have mocked and beaten him, he will have revenge under the law: An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth! He is a good son and has learned what a person needs to know to rise in life. He has not been impatient, but has sat at his desk and read his books. He has done his work and I have done mine. He will find me at this desk where he has sat throughout his young life. He will leave and I will stay, but my eyes will follow him along his way and I will have great joy in him. I have always watched him and he is a good son. Now he has become a man, and his father will no longer have any secrets. May the God of our fathers give this good son and his children six hundred, seven hundred, two thousand blessings.”

The old man was startled out of his calculations and thoughts by Esther’s shouts and complaints and by a knocking at the door.

“God of Abraham, here he is!”

His hand shaking, he opened the door and hugged his son.

“There he is! There he is! My son, the son of my wife! Moses, tell me, what happened!”

Moses’s face showed no expression, he seemed as calm as ever and showed his father the diploma.

“I knew they would have to write what they have written. They did not like it, but they had to give me first place! Don’t be silly father, don’t be crazy Esther. They would have preferred to make that sentimental Hans the first, but they couldn’t do it. I knew it. By all the gods, father, what have you been doing this morning? Gold, gold, and more gold. What is it? What does it mean? My God, father, where….”

He stopped and bent over the desk. For this moment, at least, he lost all self-control.

“It’s yours! Yours! All yours!” his father cried. I said that I would do my part if you did yours. I’m not done yet! There — there!

The old man went again to the wall safe and through a small bundle to the black floor, and several more documents on the table. His eyes glowed feverishly.

“You are armed and protected, lift your head high, eat when you are hungry and do all you want to do. You will succeed if you are smart; you will become a great man among the foreigners! Be smart! Don’t stand still, don’t stand still, don’t stand still!”

Moses Freudenstein stood before the richly loaded desk. He was pale, his lips twitched, he fingered through the pile of gold, and shivered slightly. A thousand thoughts flashed through his mind, but not one came from his heart. He thought not of the the work, the toil, the — love that had fathered this pile of wealth; he thought only of what to do with this sudden wealth, how it would change his life. His cold heart beat so hard that it almost hurt. It was an evil moment when Samuel Freudenstein told his son that he was a rich man, and that his son would be, too. A thousand dark threads stretched from this moment into the future; what was dark in Moses’s soul became even darker in this instant, nothing became brighter. Egotism rose up and stretched its hungry octopus arms out to encircle the world.” Wilhelm Raabe, Der Hungerpastor

Lecture: Jewry — The parasite among the peoples

At the beginning of their struggle, the NSDAP — and the Führer in particular —  always called the Jew a parasite. The so-called ‘educated circles” responded with mockery. They rejected the Führer’s argument that all of humanity had to suffer because of Jewry’s parasitic nature. They had a lot of fun mocking such “fanatics.”

In order to properly understand this claim, we must first make clear what a parasite is. Most of you know the expression from the plant and animal kingdoms. The word parasite comes from the Greek and in German is translated as “fellow eater” or parasite (Schmarotzer). In nature, nearly all plants get the nourishment they need from the soil. However, there are plants that suck what they need from other plants. That slows the growth of their hosts and may even kill them. That, of course, removes their own source of life. Mistletoe is a plant that you can see on trees. It is such a parasite, as is the tapeworm among animals. Science today has discovered that viruses and bacteria are also parasites that can survive only at the cost of their hosts. Nature is in constant battle against parasites. Plants and animals defend themselves with all their resources against these foreign bodies. A person, too, has an instinctive aversion to all types of parasites. The body constantly makes defensive substances. That was known for a long time, yet people did not believe the Führer’s warnings. They found it uncomfortable to hear the Führer say: “If a person believes he can get along with a parasite, it is like a tree attempting to form a beneficial alliance with mistletoe.” The Jew works to infiltrate the peoples and hollow them out. He fights with his weapons, with lies and slander, poison and discord. He intensifies the battle until the bloody extermination of his hated foes. We say today, and forever more: The Jew is the parasite among the peoples! He can as a parasite attack individuals, whole people, indeed, all of humanity. Examples from nature teach us, however, that we have no other choice that to combat him with all our strength and finally to destroy him.

To better understand the Jews, we need to review his history in the world.

The history of the Jews in the world

It is an old, widespread, and readily believed myth that the Jews went into exile after the destruction of Jerusalem, then spread throughout the entire world. Only because of poverty did they turn to gaining wealth. Only when oppressed did they attempt to use all possible methods to gain wealth and power. That, too, is a filthy lie that the Jews worked hard to spread. Long before the destruction of Jerusalem, they had spread across the Eastern Mediterranean. From the harbors of Egypt and Asia Minor they spread to Greece and then to the Western Mediterranean. They always followed major commercial routes that offered them ways to make good money easily. The first Jews came to Germany during the Roman Era and began their money businesses. They lived in special Jewish districts of cities, but enjoyed the city’s protection. Only in the late Middle Ages when usury rose to intolerable levels (as high as 60%) did the people turn against the Jews. There were many expulsions of Jews. Cologne was the first in 1429, followed by Mainz and Strassburg in 1433, Augsburg in 1439, Silesia in 1954, Tyrolia in 1499. Since there was not a complete expulsion of the Jews, however, they soon returned, now as bankers for the nobility. The Jewish plague was particularly bad among the lesser nobility. Each had his own court Jew, for example Karl Eugen’s notorious Jew Süß Oppenheimer in Württemberg. There were also Jews in the Kaiser’s court. The following reading will show the role of the Jew Phillip Lang, valet to Kaiser Rudolf II.

Reading: An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth…

The reading is from Wilhelm Kohlhaas’s Mars und Skorpien, which I am not translating. It describes the Jew Phillip Lang’s efforts to sell choice posts for high sums.

Lecture: Jewish emancipation

The ideas of the French Revolution, liberty, equality, fraternity, triumphed. Racial differences vanished. Over time all the German rulers proclaimed the equality of the Jews. Chancellor Hardenberg introduced Jewish emancipation in Prussia. Marriages between Jews and Gentiles were allowed. With the exception of the officer corps, all professions were open. The little haggling Jew vanished, replaced by the ruthless, clever, calculating bank Jew striving toward world domination, by the refined, brutal merchant who did no work but destroyed the life work of others. The House of Rothschild is the best example. The Jewish exploiters were particularly dangers for German farmers, many of whom lost everything they had through Jewish trickery. Smallholder Büttnerbauer, inheritor of an uneconomic piece of land, was forced to take out large loans and fell into the hands of grain trader Horrowssowitz [a reference to Wilhelm von Polenz’s novel Der Büttnerbauer]. Sam first pretends to be a generous and helpful friend of humanity, showing his true face only when the farmer and his farm are hopelessly lost. He buys the property at the auction and is now the master.

Lecture: The Jew — Grave digger for the German people

The ideas of the French Revolution, liberty, equality, fraternity, triumphed. Racial differences vanished. Over time all the German rulers proclaimed the equality of the Jews. Chancellor Hardenberg introduced Jewish emancipation in Prussia. Marriages between Jews and Gentiles were allowed. With the exception of the officer corps, all professions were open. The little haggling Jew vanished, replaced by the ruthless, clever, calculating bank Jew striving toward world domination, by the refined, brutal merchant who did no work but destroyed the life work of others. The House of Rothschild is the best example. The Jewish exploiters were particularly dangers for German farmers, many of whom lost everything they had through Jewish trickery. [This is by error repeated from the previous section.] The economic life of the German people was badly shaken. International capitalism grew out of the Jewish business spirit. On the other side, the Jew presented himself as the friend and leader of the working masses. Karl Marx, the rabbi’s son from Trier, called for treason against one’s own people and proclaimed the slogan: “Workers of the world, unite!” Freemasonry is yet another Jewish tool to destroy peoples and their independence. The Jewish spirit infiltrated culture and the press, corrupting them with its poison. As doctors and attorneys, as so-called artists and scientists, as bankers and civil servants, the Jews threatened to become the gravediggers of the German people. New swarms of Jews came to Germany from the East, the real center of world Jewry. It reached its epitome of power during the System State between 1918 and 1933.

How would it all end _ _ _ ?

Lecture: Germany, awake!

The Führer battled the Jews from the beginning and proclaimed in Point 4 of his party program:

“Only he can be a citizen who is a people’s comrade. A people’s comrade can only be someone of German blood, regardless of religion. No Jew, therefore, can be a people’s comrade.”

That is a declaration of what to which the Jews respond in the nastiest and crudest ways.

They have the power of the state, after all, and believe themselves secure.

The Jew had to give way — — —

National Socialism is stronger. After years of struggle, he succeeds and Adolf Hitler becomes chancellor of the Reich on 30 January 1933. The total exclusion of Jewry from German national life begins.

The Communist Party is banned. Jews lose their influence over the working class. With the voluntary dissolution of other parties, the Social Democrats above all, they lose a further area of operation.

They soon get what they deserve in the economy and financial system. They disappear from the press. Theatre and film expel them.

The decisive step in overcoming Jewry comes only with the Party Rally of Freedom in September 1935: the Nuremberg Laws.

The Reich Citizenship Law distinguishes between nationality and citizenship. It states that no Jew can be a citizen.

A Jew is someone with three racially Jewish grandparents.

This law expelled Jews from the German people’s body and placed them under separate laws.

The second extraordinarily important law was the Law for the Protection of German Blood and German Honor (Blood Protection Law).

This law prohibits:

  1. Marriages between Jews and those of German or related blood. Violations are published with prison.
  2. Extramarital relations between those of German and related blood. A man violating the law receives a prison term.
  3. Those of German or related blood under the age of 45 may not work as a servant in a house with a Jewish man.
  4. Jews may not raise the Reich and national flags or display them.

Through these two laws, the German people force the foreign infiltrators into a corner.

Jewish hatred has no limits

Jewish hatred knows no limits. They began to agitate in the crudest ways against Germany from abroad — refraining not even from murder. Wilhelm Gustloff fell in Switzerland in 1936 at the hand of the Jew David Frankfurter, and two years later diplomat von Rath was murdered in Paris by the Jew Herschel Grünspann. The Reich could not tolerate that. Sharper measures against the Jews were implemented. They had to pay a fine of 2,000,000 RM [the actual figure was one billion RM]. Their businesses were closed. They had to wear the Jewish star and take on Jewish names. These and many other actions prepared for their final removal from German territory.

The Jew is and remains our greatest enemy

During these years there have always been German people’s comrades who believed they had to say a good word about the Jews. You may have heard someone or another talk about “decent Jews.”

Anyone who does that proves that he has not made the slightest effort to understand the true nature of the Jew. He is nothing but a dangerous parasite from which we Germans had to free ourselves were we not to perish slowly but surely as a people.

The single feeling that must fill each German is not pity for the Jew, but rather thanks for the Führer who saved us from this fate.

The impact of the Jews in the world

We said at the beginning of this meeting that the Jews began this war, and now want to conclude with this question. Although the Jew is forever finished in Germany, he has infiltrated other states even more strongly.

He has fared best in the Soviet Union, England, and America. In England and America we find him as a big capitalist, as a war profiteer and armaments merchant. Jews stand behind Roosevelt and Churchill. They have incited these ‘blind statesmen” into war so that they could make money and become the real rulers of the world when it is over.

The Soviet Union is the other state that is truly ruled by Jews. Stalin, too, is only their tool. Of the 550 commissars in the Soviet Union in 1921, 30 were Russian, 24 Latvians, a few Hungarians and Poles, and — 447 Jews!

The Führer said:

We see in Bolshevism Jewry’s attempt in the 20th century to gain world domination.”

The Komintern (Communist International) with its branches throughout the world was its instrument for gaining world domination. Although Stalin recently announced that the Komintern had been dissolved, we know that that is only a genuine Jewish lie, an attempt by the Jewish parasites throughout the world who conduct communist propaganda to conceal themselves. The Jew has made the Soviet Union, England, and America its allies.

The Jew who conducted his business unhindered in our land until 1933, is still today our real enemy.

The Führer’s conviction, however, is also ours:

“We will strike our external enemy just as we put an end to our internal foe. The end of this war will mean the destruction (Untergang) of the Jews.”

The National Socialist movement has freed the Reich of Jewish parasites — it will not hesitate to do the same with World Jewry.

Reading:

“We in Germany are proud that Bolshevism and criminal Jewry has found their ultimate opponent in our Führer and in our movement, and we promise that these destructive forces will never return to Germany as long as we and our descendents live.” Alfred Rosenberg.

In ‘Eisenhower’s Death Camps’: A U.S. Prison Guard Remembers

Martin Brech

In October 1944, at age eighteen, I was drafted into the U.S. army. Largely because of the „Battle of the Bulge,“ my training was cut short, my furlough was halved, and I was sent overseas immediately. Upon arrival in Le Havre, France, we were quickly loaded into box cars and shipped to the front. When we got there, I was suffering increasingly severe symptoms of mononucleosis, and was sent to a hospital in Belgium. Since mononucleosis was then known as the „kissing disease,“ I mailed a letter of thanks to my girlfriend.

By the time I left the hospital, the outfit I had trained with in Spartanburg, South Carolina, was deep inside Germany, so, despite my protests, I was placed in a „repo depot“ (replacement depot). I lost interest in the units to which I was assigned, and don’t recall all of them: non-combat units were ridiculed at that time. My separation qualification record states I was mostly with Company C, 14th Infantry Regiment, during my seventeen-month stay in Germany, but I remember being transferred to other outfits also.

In late March or early April 1945, I was sent to guard a POW camp near Andernach along the Rhine. I had four years of high school German, so I was able to talk to the prisoners, although this was forbidden. Gradually, however, I was used as an interpreter and asked to ferret out members of the S.S. (I found none.)

In Andernach about 50,000 prisoners of all ages were held in an open field surrounded by barbed wire. The women were kept in a separate enclosure that I did not see until later. The men I guarded had no shelter and no blankets. Many had no coats. They slept in the mud, wet and cold, with inadequate slit trenches for excrement. It was a cold, wet spring, and their misery from exposure alone was evident.

Even more shocking was to see the prisoners throwing grass and weeds into a tin can containing a thin soup. They told me they did this to help ease their hunger pains. Quickly they grew emaciated. Dysentery raged, and soon they were sleeping in their own excrement, too weak and crowded to reach the slit trenches. Many were begging for food, sickening and dying before our eyes. We had ample food and supplies, but did nothing to help them, including no medical assistance.

Outraged, I protested to my officers and was met with hostility or bland indifference. When pressed, they explained they were under strict orders from „higher up.“ No officer would dare do this to 50,000 men if he felt that it was „out of line,“ leaving him open to charges. Realizing my protests were useless, I asked a friend working in the kitchen if he could slip me some extra food for the prisoners. He too said they were under strict orders to severely ration the prisoners’ food, and that these orders came from „higher up.“ But he said they had more food than they knew what to do with, and would sneak me some.

When I threw this food over the barbed wire to the prisoners, I was caught and threatened with imprisonment. I repeated the „offense,“ and one officer angrily threatened to shoot me. I assumed this was a bluff until I encountered a captain on a hill above the Rhine shooting down at a group of German civilian women with his .45 caliber pistol. When I asked, „Why?,“ he mumbled, „Target practice,“ and fired until his pistol was empty. I saw the women running for cover, but, at that distance, couldn’t tell if any had been hit.

This is when I realized I was dealing with cold-blooded killers filled with moralistic hatred. They considered the Germans subhuman and worthy of extermination; another expression of the downward spiral of racism. Articles in the G.I. newspaper, Stars and Stripes, played up the German concentration camps, complete with photos of emaciated bodies. This amplified our self-righteous cruelty, and made it easier to imitate behavior we were supposed to oppose. Also, I think, soldiers not exposed to combat were trying to prove how tough they were by taking it out on the prisoners and civilians.

These prisoners, I found out, were mostly farmers and workingmen, as simple and ignorant as many of our own troops. As time went on, more of them lapsed into a zombie-like state of listlessness, while others tried to escape in a demented or suicidal fashion, running through open fields in broad daylight towards the Rhine to quench their thirst. They were mowed down.

Some prisoners were as eager for cigarettes as for food, saying they took the edge off their hunger. Accordingly, enterprising G.I. „Yankee traders“ were acquiring hordes of watches and rings in exchange for handfuls of cigarettes or less. When I began throwing cartons of cigarettes to the prisoners to ruin this trade, I was threatened by rank-and-file G.I.s too.

The only bright spot in this gloomy picture came one night when. I was put on the „graveyard shift,“ from two to four a.m. Actually, there was a graveyard on the uphill side of this enclosure, not many yards away. My superiors had forgotten to give me a flashlight and I hadn’t bothered to ask for one, disgusted as I was with the whole situation by that time. It was a fairly bright night and I soon became aware of a prisoner crawling under the wires towards the graveyard. We were supposed to shoot escapees on sight, so I started to get up from the ground to warn him to get back. Suddenly I noticed another prisoner crawling from the graveyard back to the enclosure. They were risking their lives to get to the graveyard for something. I had to investigate.

When I entered the gloom of this shrubby, tree-shaded cemetery, I felt completely vulnerable, but somehow curiosity kept me moving. Despite my caution, I tripped over the legs of someone in a prone position. Whipping my rifle around while stumbling and trying to regain composure of mind and body, I soon was relieved I hadn’t reflexively fired. The figure sat up. Gradually, I could see the beautiful but terror-stricken face of a woman with a picnic basket nearby. German civilians were not allowed to feed, nor even come near the prisoners, so I quickly assured her I approved of what she was doing, not to be afraid, and that I would leave the graveyard to get out of the way.

I did so immediately and sat down, leaning against a tree at the edge of the cemetery to be inconspicuous and not frighten the prisoners. I imagined then, and still do now, what it would be like to meet a beautiful woman with a picnic basket under those conditions as a prisoner. I have never forgotten her face.

Eventually, more prisoners crawled back to the enclosure. I saw they were dragging food to their comrades, and could only admire their courage and devotion.

On May 8, V.E. Day [1945], I decided to celebrate with some prisoners I was guarding who were baking bread the other prisoners occasionally received. This group had all the bread they could eat, and shared the jovial mood generated by the end of the war. We all thought we were going home soon, a pathetic hope on their part. We were in what was to become the French zone [of occupation], where I soon would witness the brutality of the French soldiers when we transferred our prisoners to them for their slave labor camps.

On this day, however, we were happy.

As a gesture of friendliness, I emptied my rifle and stood it in the corner, even allowing them to play with it at their request. This thoroughly „broke the ice,“ and soon we were singing songs we taught each other, or that I had learned in high school German class („Du, du, liegst mir im Herzen“). Out of gratitude, they baked me a special small loaf of sweet bread, the only possible present they had left to offer. I stuffed it in my „Eisenhower jacket,“ and snuck it back to my barracks, eating it when I had privacy. I have never tasted more delicious bread, nor felt a deeper sense of communion while eating it. I believe a cosmic sense of Christ (the Oneness of all Being) revealed its normally hidden presence to me on that occasion, influencing my later decision to major in philosophy and religion.

Shortly afterwards, some of our weak and sickly prisoners were marched off by French soldiers to their camp. We were riding on a truck behind this column. Temporarily, it slowed down and dropped back, perhaps because the driver was as shocked as I was. Whenever a German prisoner staggered or dropped back, he was hit on the head with a club and killed. The bodies were rolled to the side of the road to be picked up by another truck. For many, this quick death might have been preferable to slow starvation in our „killing fields.“

When I finally saw the German women held in a separate enclosure, I asked why we were holding them prisoner. I was told they were „camp followers,“ selected as breeding stock for the S.S. to create a super-race. I spoke to some, and must say I never met a more spirited or attractive group of women. I certainly didn’t think they deserved imprisonment.

More and more I was used as an interpreter, and was able to prevent some particularly unfortunate arrests. One somewhat amusing incident involved an old farmer who was being dragged away by several M.P.s. I was told he had a „fancy Nazi medal,“ which they showed me. Fortunately, I had a chart identifying such medals. He’d been awarded it for having five children! Perhaps his wife was somewhat relieved to get him „off her back,“ but I didn’t think one of our death camps was a fair punishment for his contribution to Germany. The M.P.s agreed and released him to continue his „dirty work.“

Famine began to spread among the German civilians also. It was a common sight to see German women up to their elbows in our garbage cans looking for something edible — that is, if they weren’t chased away.

When I interviewed mayors of small towns and villages, I was told that their supply of food had been taken away by „displaced persons“ (foreigners who had worked in Germany), who packed the food on trucks and drove away. When I reported this, the response was a shrug. I never saw any Red Cross at the camp or helping civilians, although their coffee and doughnut stands were available everywhere else for us. In the meantime, the Germans had to rely on the sharing of hidden stores until the next harvest.

Hunger made German women more „available,“ but despite this, rape was prevalent and often accompanied by additional violence. In particular I remember an eighteen-year old woman who had the side of her faced smashed with a rifle butt, and was then raped by two G.I.s. Even the French complained that the rapes, looting and drunken destructiveness on the part of our troops was excessive. In Le Havre, we’d been given booklets warning us that the German soldiers had maintained a high standard of behavior with French civilians who were peaceful, and that we should do the same. In this we failed miserably.

„So what?“ some would say. „The enemy’s atrocities were worse than ours.“ It is true that I experienced only the end of the war, when we were already the victors. The German opportunity for atrocities had faded, while ours was at hand. But two wrongs don’t make a right. Rather than copying our enemy’s crimes, we should aim once and for all to break the cycle of hatred and vengeance that has plagued and distorted human history. This is why I am speaking out now, 45 years after the crime. We can never prevent individual war crimes, but we can, if enough of us speak out, influence government policy. We can reject government propaganda that depicts our enemies as subhuman and encourages the kind of outrages I witnessed. We can protest the bombing of civilian targets, which still goes on today. And we can refuse ever to condone our government’s murder of unarmed and defeated prisoners of war.

I realize it’s difficult for the average citizen to admit witnessing a crime of this magnitude, especially if implicated himself. Even G.I.s sympathetic to the victims were afraid to complain and get into trouble, they told me. And the danger has not ceased. Since I spoke out a few weeks ago, I have received threatening calls and had my mailbox smashed. But its been worth it. Writing about these atrocities has been a catharsis of feelings suppressed too long, a liberation, that perhaps will remind other witnesses that „the truth will make us free, have no fear.“ We may even learn a supreme lesson from all this: only love can conquer all.

Who Caused the WWII?

 

I made this video, based on one article by Michael Walsh, to expose the great propaganda lie that the Third Reich started the WWII. This terrifying war was started by the British government – who, on 3.09.1939 turned a local conflict between Germany and Poland into a new World War!

P.S. I corrected some errors in the Walsh’s article.
