Adolf Hitler and the Army of Mankind

     Page twenty. I'm always amazed and excited when a new page is born. If you've read all of the pages up until now, I salute you. You are the golden tiny percentage of people who use their brains instead of letting someone else think for them. It's up to us to get the others to think for themselves and learn the truth. A difficult task, but more and more people are waking up to the truth. This is not only from the quickly deteriorating conditions of this world, but from the efforts of thousands of warriors of truth on the internet. They are true soldiers fighting this silent war to awaken the people. They are selfless, and from many different countries and backgrounds. They post on social networking sites, forums, image boards, comment sections, etc. all over the internet. They are the true heroes of this embattled world. Some risk their personal safety and freedom to spread the truth. Those comrades behind enemy lines, in hostile countries where freedom is almost non-existent, are truly priceless to us.

As we see the Aryan race dwindling away, day after dark day; as we watch the enemy celebrating our fall; as we grimace to our women committing racial suicide; as we turn our heads in disgust as our countries become prisons; as we throw our hands into the air and declare 'burn it all!'; as we walk the lonely path of sanity and unpopular and even illegal views; as we do everything we can to alert our sleeping brethren to the approaching doom; as we shake our heads in disappointment, yet continue on unabated; as we steel ourselves inside, hardening our hearts and minds for the coming collapse; as we can only smile at the peaks of insanity this world has reached.

It's important we not be demoralized or lose hope. We are gaining new allies every day. Keep focused on our goal and on your personal duties. A soldier does not worry about total victory, but instead concentrates on his orders and the battlefield before him. Do not get frustrated and overburdened. Keep pushing back, keep fighting -- be relentless.

'...when I look back, I have only one sentiment: an enormous regret.
Regret that we did not succeed...

And when we see what there is on the other side, what 30 years of the others’ victory has given,
this anarchy in the world, this rout of the white world, this desertion throughout the universe;
when we see in our own countries the decay of morals,
the fall of the fatherland, the fall of the family, the fall of social order;
when we see this appetite for material goods which has replaced the great flame of the ideal which animated us,
well then, truly, between the two we chose the right side.
The small, miserable Europe of today, of this impoverished Common Market,
cannot give happiness to men. Consumer society poisons humanity rather than elevating it.

So, for our part, we dreamed of something great, and we have only one desire,
that this spirit be reborn. And with all my might, up to the last moment of my existence,
I will fight for this. So that what was our struggle and our martyrdom, will one day be the resurrection.'

-Léon Degrelle

[Above: Paquita Louise de Shishmareff, better known as Leslie Fry]

• Leslie Fry (February 16, 1882 – July 15, 1970) was the pen name of Paquita Louise de Shishmareff, although there are a handful of names and spelling variations of her name attached to this enigmatic woman. Who is she, some of you may ask? She is none other than the person who brought The Protocols of the Elders of Zion to Henry Ford, the great American industrialist and automobile manufacturer. Ford would later publish this explosive, evil writing in The Dearborn Independent. In this newspaper, between 1920 to 1922, he published it in a series of articles titled 'The International Jew: The World's Foremost Problem'. The Dearborn Independent reached approximately 700,000 readers. It no doubt influenced another work published by Ford called 'The International Jew', a four-volume set of pamphlets distributed in the early 1920s in the 100s of thousands. These pamphlets detailed the Jewish destructive character and their insidious deeds. Fry was also the advisor to the editor of the Dearborn Independent on Jewish matters.

In 1921, Ford would be quoted as saying:

'The only statement I care to make about the Protocols is that they fit in with what is going on. They are 16 years old, and they have fitted the world situation up to this time.'
-Wallace Max, 2003, The American Axis, 2003

[Above: From left right: Leslie Fry, Henry Allen, Conrad Chapman and Mr. Gurin, pose in the only known photograph of Leslie Fry, in 1937.]

Leslie Fry, this monumental and all-important, history-making woman, is practically unknown in the world today, which is little different from yesterday. But this was her intent. She didn't want fame, prestige or recognition, she only wanted to awaken her fellow man to the dire truth. The truth that an entirely evil force was quietly enslaving them, and that they had plans for much, much worse.

There is only one picture known of Leslie Fry, which is shown above. Personal information on her is nearly non-existent, but we do have various technical data available. Let's go over some of what we have.

She was very pro-Christian and her knowledge made her very anti-Jewish. Much of that knowledge she embued into her 1931 book Waters Flowing Eastward. The book details the fact that Jews are to blame for Capitalism and Bolshevism and that Jews were responsible for the creation and instigation of WWI. It became clear to Leslie Fry that certain Jews were working behind the scenes, generation after generation, for total world domination.

Although Fry emigrated from Russia to the United States in 1917, she was born in Paris to American parents. She spent over a decade in St Petersburg and in 1906 married an officer in the Russian Imperial Army, Feodor Ivanovich Shishmarev. Her new husband's family was part of the Russian aristocracy. This marriage to Feodor would change her life and set her on a lifelong search for answers. During the communist revolution in 1917 her husband was murdered by communists. She fled Russia with her two sons to San Francisco. She eventually ended up in New York, but after some years moved back to California in 1926. Somewhere during this time she was involved in certain 'fascist political circles'.

She used her wealth to support various political causes that she saw as furthering the truth she had so hard learned. But perhaps nothing was more important than her meeting with Henry Ford in 1920. The two no doubt talked about the darkening world situation and politics before she presented him with a volume of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion.

[Below: A selection of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion.
From the top left: 1963 Spanish edition, 1937 Brazilian edition, English edition, 1934 English edition.
Second row, from left: American edition, Arabic edition, 1924 Swedish edition, Polish edition.
Bottom row, from left: French edition, Japanese edition, Canadian edition, English edition.]

During the 1930s she continued to support various patriotic, fascist and National Socialist efforts in the USA, and also founded her own effort, The Christian Free Press. Her enemies labeled this 'an anti-Semitic newspaper modeled after Germany's infamous Der Sturmer'. Allegedly documents were uncovered by the San Diego Police in a former colleague named Henry Douglas Allen's (1879-1961) briefcase in 1938 that implicated Fry as being a 'paid Nazi agent'. Supposedly Fry also attempted to revitalize the Ku Klux Klan with Allen. It is also during this time that Fry wrote her work that would cement her in the halls of history: Waters Flowing Eastward (1931).

The curious title is taken from a passage from the book itself:
'Beneath the great westward flow of civilization, there are undercurrent moving eastward. These are impelled by a spirit which looks back to the East, to the day of tyrant and slave, of luxury and misery, and incidentally the suppression of Western Culture. The spirit is retrogressive, though often calling itself "progressive"; and its ways are devious.'

[Above: Waters Flowing Eastward.]

It was a book like no other of its time. Four years later she wrote The Jews and the British Empire (1935).

In 1940 Fry visited Italy, but like most of her life it is unknown what she did there. After the U.S. instigated attack on Pearl Harbor she returned to America, only to be arrested on Ellis Island for sedition. Like thousands of Americans who also were arrested on trumped up charges for speaking out against the tyrannical American government and its hidden rulers, she was imprisoned for years and released after the war. The powers-that-be feared anyone speaking out against it and went to extreme lengths to silence them, even building concentration camps to house Japanese, Italian and German citizens.

'In this country we hold fast to the concept of freedom as one of absolute validity. We know in our hearts that we are in imminent danger of losing both our freedom and our material well-being if we go on drifting. But if indeed national re-organization has to be bought at the price of losing our freedom, many of us feel that it would be better for humanity to descend once again into the abyss of barbarism and struggle back painfully at some later epoch to a civilization capable of satisfying both its material desires and its spiritual aspirations.'
-Waters Flowing Eastward

Waters Flowing Eastward not only examined The Protocols, it also detailed its current application to destroy Christian, and moreso Western civilization. Fry saw Communism and Capitalism as the same beast, pretending to be enemies when really their goals were identical and both were controlled by the same Jews. In a chapter called 'How the Protocols Came to Russia' Fry details the origin of the insidious publication and how it was sold to a Russian diplomat's daughter by a Jewish Freemason named Joseph Schorst in 1884. This document was apparently smuggled out of a Jewish Freemason lodge in Paris. Records show that Schorst fled Paris afterward and was soon murdered.

In 1940, Fry published a vast chart she called 'the Politico-Occult-Judaeo-Masonry Chart' illustrating the interconnection between the organizations involved in the Protocol's plans for Jewish domination, from the Bavarian Order of the Illuminati, to the League of Nations.

For the next decades, until her death on July 15, 1970, very little is known about Fry's life. But knowing her selflessness and previous desire to operate quietly in the background, Fry probably didn't just stop her fight. But what she did, what she funded and where she channeled her remarkable energy, we may never know.

• Portugal has always been an interesting country to me. It's been elusive in my research, seldom coming up. When I learned of Portuguese volunteers fighting with their Spanish comrades for the Third Reich I became even more interested. That these men would leave their homes for a distant war in Russia, on the Eastern Front, said a lot about their courage and selflessness. They believed in a new Europe. They wanted to help usher that new age into being. With blood and determination, faceless and nameless, they fought and died in the Blue Division, all but forgotten. We do not know how many of them, mostly by foot, traveled to Germany and later to Russia, to fight communism to the death.

But we know they were there.

To these brave warriors, buried under Russian earth, our Portuguese brothers, we have not forgotten you!

To help us better understand Portugal and the men who volunteered to fight communism, our Portuguese comrade, Selureva, has written a short introduction for us. Do yourself a favor, add to your knowledge, and give it a read!


In 1890 Portugal received from its old ally, England, an ultimatum of war unless Portugal concludes the project of unification of all their colonies in Africa; this was not the first nor the last strategy of England to strip colonial power from Portugal and pressure continued until the Portuguese colonial war in the 1960s.

Portugal was the principal European country with colonies all over the world since the Renaissance era. This colonization was rarely achieved by military force, because as a small country there was a lack of human means, this inevitably led to losing many of these colonies to England; in the more civilized countries of the East, the strategy of commercial trade was approached and small Portuguese districts were founded, such as Goa in India and Macao in China.

At the point of the English ultimatum, Portugal was militarily weakened after the war against the French Liberalists who tried to conquer Europe; next another civil war started between two brothers disputing the Portuguese throne, leading to the permanent loss of the main colony, Brazil, in 1822, ending the main economic sustenance of Portugal.

King Carlos I had no choice but to comply promptly with the ultimatum of the British, that created unpopular feelings of revolt against the King's submission. Masonic and Liberal inspired republican forces seized this moment of the king's lack of sympathy from the people. In 1908, D. Carlos I was assassinated in Lisbon's main square together with his heir son. Although Freemasonry claim its action as the implementation of the republic in Portugal, in reality the murder was organized by Carbonaria. Today millions of people pass by without noticing the marks of the shots, still visible in one of the walls, as a memory of the end of the Monarchy.

[Above: Terreiro do Paço, where King Carlos I was murdered.]

In order to maintain the Republican power, all possibilities of Monarchic rebirth were attacked, destroying a great part of the castles, palaces and churches. On the cradle city of Portugal, Guimarães, home of the first king, a popular revolt rises against republican forces and prevents any damage to its castle, a monument of glory.

The Church was also a problem, because it allied itself with the Monarchy against Freemasonry, which led to the prohibition of any religious cult in Portugal for several years, some priests were chained and walked as dogs as a form of humiliation, some of them were shot to death, many churches desecrated and turned into stables and taverns. The bells stopped tolling in the villages as if time itself had stopped.

The Iberian Christianity of Portugal and Spain is characterized by a pagan syncretism, the main deity of worship is the personification of the mother, who assumes various forms and epithets, related to a call for help -- Pain, Sickness, Travel, Birth, etc.

The main religious site of Portugal, Cape Espichel, a place of worship and spiritual practice since the Paleolithic, evolved as an annual cult, Our Lady of the Cape; royalty and nobles participated with large donations, this cult was dismembered by the new republic with success and today is only remembered and practiced by locals. This sacred place was so important that it even had an Opera House for the elite, while popular festivities occurred outdoors for the common people. Later, the Church recovered the annual cult with the apparitions of the Virgin to 3 children at Fátima village in 1917, being the main religious cult of Portugal today, although an artificial cult without the millennial and pagan continuity of Cape Espichel.

[Above: Cape Espichel Sanctuary: the people celebrated in the inner patio, the Opera house can be seen roofless on the right side, the long corridor of houses lodged the pilgrims.]

What we assume today as Democratic freedom and golden days, is nothing but propaganda carried out by the current forces in power, hiding all the oppression and crimes that were done to reach a goal. Freedom of voting has no relation historically with an improvement in the quality of life. Today European countries that still conserve a life-lasting king and royal family instead a democratic president, have a better quality of life, such as Belgium, Norway, England, Sweden, etc.

In the Portuguese case, since the implantation of the republic it was not possible to maintain a president in power for a long time, the completion of a mandate was rare; coups, power struggles, corruption, assassinations, military control, led to a period of disorganization and various political crises. From 1910 until the establishment of the dictatorship of Salazar in 1933 there were 16 different governments in Portugal, within normality there should would have been only 6 governments.

[Above: Proclamation of the Portuguese Republic with freedom at the center. ]

Portugal is bankrupt, to recover from the situation, Salazar, the best Portuguese professor of economy, is invited to lead as minister of finance; Salazar accepts with the condition to control all the accounts of all the ministries. In only 1 year Portugal is out of bankruptcy and has a positive monetary balance This is still today considered a miracle, Salazar gained political and people's confidence, allowing him to create a new constitution in 1933 giving way to the dictatorship in Portugal, in line with several other European countries.

With the new constitution began the program called New State; the motto was "God, Country and Family", and also "Everything for the Nation, Nothing against the Nation." The country invested in self-sufficient production, the southern part of Portugal is transformed into large grain fields, “the granary of Portugal”, on the north, investment goes to wine, all importations are avoided. Entire villages were created from nothing in most rural areas so that no field was left uncultivated, people received houses for free in remote villages in return for their work there. This allowed more wealth into families in return of more taxes, more taxes created more jobs and more exportations, thus again more taxes received. Roads and all communication ways were improved, the most important and current national infrastructures of Portugal today are still from that time.

Most of the monuments destroyed in the past by republicans were rebuilt giving emphasis to patriotism. Arts were also important, giving focus to traditional ways and valor, the best Portuguese cinema made is from the New State era.

[Above: António Oliveira Salazar.]

In order to end the constant exchange of political power that led Portugal to ruin, a secret police, PIDE (International Police and State Defense), is created. Communism, Syndicalism and Masonry are prohibited. The headquarters of Freemasonry are destroyed and handed over to the Portuguese Legion, a legionary militia where men and women could integrate.

By 1946 women could fully vote and be part of political position for the first time. The compulsory education is reinforced and improved, more than 7000 schools are built all over the country, every child should go to school at least until fourth grade. It is also created the Portuguese Youth, divided into masculine and feminine, with rigorous physical and intellectual education. It started at the age of 7 with the degree of Lusito (meaning little Lusitano, Lusitânia is considered the ancient name of Portugal before Romanization). Next followed the Infante degree at age 10, Avant-gardist at 17, and finished with a Cadet level with a ceremony at 25 years old.

[Above: Portuguese Youth reunion at Palácio da Independência.]

[Above: Portuguese Youth female standards and banners, next to a New State monument portraying important Portuguese figures.]

Portugal was a rare country that remained neutral during the war. Since all other countries were at war, Portugal's exports increased, selling textiles and metals to any European country. To maintain neutrality, one air base is given to the British and Americans and wolfram was provided to the Germans; to prevent war with its neighbor country it signed a non-aggression treaty with Franco, also a fascist leader.

Regarding the Jews, (even if this was not the main focus of the III Reich as it is popularized) Portugal had annihilated their presence back in 1492, after the Jews received the order to get out of Spain or convert to Christianity; around 93,000 of them fled to Portugal, but soon after that, Portugal too ordered their departure or conversion. Many of these converted Jews were given a new family name based on trees and cities, and were called New Christians; the practice of Judaism continued in secret; this heresy was condemned with death by fire by the Inquisition (witch burnings were rare, most of the burnings were actually relapsed Jews).

New Christians didn’t integrate fully and in 1506, at Easter day mass, while praying for the end of the drought and plague that was affecting the land, the face of Christ shined. A New Christian criticized it saying it was only the sun shining through the window behind, he was beaten to death where he stood and at this point a popular rebellion gathered and slaughtered any New Christians they could find for 3 continuous days. They were blamed for the plague as a curse, accounts from that time estimate more than 4,000 Jews were killed in that massacre.

Another curious fact, the same church where the massacre began was used for indoor burnings when the person was well known, avoiding riots; the church suffered a fire later on and was preserved half restored, it has a very unique look.

At the time of WWII and still today, Jewish presence in Portugal is very small and there is indifference in the Portuguese culture about Zionism and the Jews. Salazar in a neutral way allowed only the passage of Jews, their integration into national territory was not allowed.

[Above: S. Domingos church in Lisbon, where the 1506 massacre began.]

Portugal did not enter the Second World War, but in 1961 the colonial war started in Africa. After the English lost several of their colonies, pressure for Portugal to give away their colonies increased, acts of liberating fronts rose in Africa, raiding farms and massacring Portuguese civilians, leaving the raped women hanged and eviscerated. This resulted in a huge mass of Portuguese and Africans fleeing to Portugal; later all their properties and money got expropriated by the new local government. Portuguese troops were sent to maintain peace and order in the African colonies, but the New State would fall and the war was to be lost.

Portuguese colonies during the New State suffered an industrial and urban growth, providing a mass immigration of Portuguese to work there. Those infrastructures remain today without any significant urban evolution, after being raided, vandalized and occupied they remain degraded as a shadow of the past.

Luanda, Angola, one of most expensive cities to live in, has the contrast of high poverty rate with a minimum monthly wage that is lower than 100 U.S. dollars. Streets are filled with piles of garbage with an unbearable stench, no garbage collection services operate on a regular basis, basic services like water and electricity are stolen and resold by locals; white people have to be accompanied by a black security guard on the streets, constant harassment by police forces demanding bribes is normal in Angola. This was the improvement in the quality of life for the ex-Portuguese colonies in exchange for the so-called "freedom" of independence, being Portuguese is still highly regarded and looked for by Africans, in order to live in Portugal or to enter Europe.

[Above: Portuguese banner, a Templar sign, another long story, Templar culture contrary to popular belief, is not to be found in England or France.]

Salazar dies in 1970 at the age of 81 after falling from his chair, Marcello Caetano continues to rule until April 25 of 1974. A disorganized and tired-of-war country was led to a revolution by a military party that strategically occupied another military headquarters without receiving opposition. In this coup only 4 people died, it was a peaceful revolution with the surrender of Marcello Caetano.

The aim of the military was to deliver Portugal to a new democracy. Right after, the communist party, that had promoted the speech of "freedom", began to execute a plan to create a new communist dictatorship; cutting off immediately all the media communications such as TV and radio, but it failed after loosing the elections to the socialists.

In the following years an anarchist terrorist group remained active, killing several civilians and police with bullets and bombs while robbing banks. This group was called People’s Force 25, it is currently inactive.

After April 25 Portugal entered an anarchy state, inflamed by communist/anarchist parties claiming the land belongs to the people and should be removed from the rich owners. Looting ravaged the whole country, owners of large estates were expropriated from their lands, with a utopian vision of dividing the profits by the workers without bosses. This ended in robbery and posterior abandonment of the properties where no one wanted to work anymore.

This was a blow that the country did not recover from until today. Farms in areas with rich agricultural soil and water are nothing today but collapsed ruins.

Cooperatives were set up, where workers gave their produce to be sold, avoiding traders and indirect buyers following Marxist theory, but they succumbed to corruption and inability to cope with private competitiveness. Afterwards what was left of Portuguese farming was destroyed by money paid by the European Union. They prohibited Portugal from producing significant agricultural products and to give way to huge exportations to England, France and Germany. The entire Metallurgy, Chemical, Naval, Automobile and Railroad industry was slowly dismantled until there was nothing left. All national services of transportation, power, communications have been privatized, in order to maintain jobs for ex-politicians.

[Above: April 25th 1975.]

After the New State fell, personalities linked to socialist centrist politics, who had previously fled from Portugal to avoid their military duty, fearing death in the war, returned to Portugal claiming themselves as liberators. They formulated a new perspective on the events, creating the myth that they had to flee from the dictatorship because otherwise they would have been killed by the regime (half true), never claiming they were in fact just military deserters.

Since the end of the dictatorship, corruption has prevailed and bankruptcy returned to Portugal. The last prime minister was even arrested for corruption and robbery. The IMF (Internatinal Monetary Fund) has already intervened in Portugal 3 times after the fall of the New State, in '77, '83 and 2011. Mário Soares, exiled in France, returned right after the April 25th revolution, and was elected president and prime minister of the Republic several times. He created foundations for his own support, delivered colonies, changed state facilities to his own properties in return for high rents. He was also suspected of diamond smuggling in Africa, and many other crimes.

After his recent death, not even with all the political and television propaganda, his funeral attendance was extremely low. By contrast on a national TV show where people could vote who was the biggest personality of Portugal, Salazar won the first place.

Education and TV channels are far from neutral in Portugal, spreading dark myths about Salazar; current political power still invests on propaganda of a Portugal being a poor country because of Salazar, distorting historical facts that could help the country for their own gain:

• Traditional values of Salazar and lack of import policies are told as if it was a country that had stopped in time, blaming the sole figure of an old fashioned man.

• Tales of hunger during the dictatorship are told, which are true, but they never mention the direct comparison to other countries in Europe during the war with their main cities devastated by air attacks that lasted days, where thousands were killed at home and young people were sent abroad to face death.

• In schools children learn the 'horrors' of Salazar and about the holiday of freedom on April 25, known as the red carnations day (communists). In reality to signal peace the military placed white carnations on top of their guns.

• Women were said to be oppressed, when at that time a man that had sexual relations with a woman and refused to marry her would face jail. Regarding women receiving the right to vote, the truth is distorted to the point of saying Salazar believed women were dumb and gave them the right to vote, in hope they would maintain his power.

• Oppression and lack of freedom of the past give place today to higher crime rate and lack of police forces, without fuel for service cars and with officers required to buy their own uniforms. But still Portugal today is a safe place to live without violent crime.

• Censorship is exaggerated to the point of saying it was forbidden to talk back then; when today a text like this one would never be published in a mainstream publication. A scholar that would dare to speak neutral or focus on the good about the Salazar regime, would damage his career permanently. Symbols of communism and anarchist associations are allowed, during the last elections the extreme left party showed posters through the streets with the words “Death to Traitors” with total freedom and no consequences. But displaying a swastika, (also the symbol of pre-roman Portuguese and other ancient cultures) is forbidden, neo-Nazis' homes are raided by the police, confiscating personal property, this is the freedom of speech and mind we have today.

The main military figure Salgueiro Maia, that organized the April 25th revolution died disillusioned with the state of politics in Portugal.

Salazar was a patriot, who raised Portugal economically, people were proud to be Portuguese back then. Contrary to modern politics, Salazar did not enrich himself nor did he practice patrimony for family and friends. He served the country and never served himself over the country, dying poor with nothing in his bank account.

Public opinion in Portugal about Salazar is divided, even if common sense is based on communist myths and media sources, there are a good number of Salazar supporters, claiming someone like him is needed to straighten the country up.

Despite the political corruption in Portugal, being one of the countries with the lowest salaries in Europe, it is a country where the quality of life is reasonable, with basic food and services cheap. Safety is one of the main qualities that makes Portugal a good place to live, mainly because high masses of immigration from other continents do not come to Portugal, they prefer France, England and Germany, countries with high benefits for parasites that don’t work nor produce anything.

Eternal flames burned atop the sacred buildings and stained glass was overhead. Two policemen or the SS stood guard on either side of the memorial’s base. Visitors were required to be silent, remove their hats and keep children in order. After the war the Americans, keeping to their evil, grisly selves, exhumed the bodies and destroyed the once beautiful temple.

[Above: This photo was taken by Heinrich Hoffmann (whom would later become Hitler's official photographer) in May 1919. It is of 'Mohamed Husen' in Munich. Husen was a highly decorated officer who served in East Africa with the Germans and later with a Freikorps unit. The inscription on the photo reads in part 'To the battles: Munich. A loyal East African fighter.' Mohamed Husen is shown here while working with the 'Lettow-Vorbeck Freikorps' acting as a chauffeur. He is what is called an 'askari' (An askari was a local soldier from Africa serving in the armies of the European colonial powers, particularly in East Africa, Northeast Africa, and Central Africa. The word was not only used by the Germans, but also the French, English, Italian, Urdu and Portuguese).]

Mohamed Husen (birth name Majub) was born in Tanzania (German East Africa) in 1905. At the age of nine Husen volunteered to fight with Germany against his country's invaders in WWI. After the war he was given combat pay by Germany for his deceased father who was killed in action during the war.

Sometime later he found a job as a steward in a German ship. This job enabled him to travel to Germany, first to Hamburg and later to Berlin.

During this tumultuous time he joined the revolutionary 'Lettow-Vorbeck Freikorps' acting as a chauffeur. Sometime during this time he earned German citizenship and later got a job in a circus as an entertainer. In his spare time he also taught Swahili to German government civil servants and diplomats, who would later use these language skills in Africa.

[Above: Mohamed Husen]

After Adolf Hitler came to power Husen began appearing in German films and proved to be a popular actor. He appeared in eleven films from 1934 to 1941.

A London Guardian news article reported about him:

' the mid-1930s, he was dressing up in military gear and appearing at rallies in front of National Socialist banners.'

Not much is known further about Husen. It is reported that he had a wife while in Germany and later children. Reports say that at least one of his children died in Allied Terror Bombings and possible his wife as well.

One thing is clear: Husen's story is another piece of proof that the National Socialists were not the racists their enemies teach that they were.

• In WWI the askari were led by their most beloved German leader Paul Emil von Lettow-Vorbeck. Lettow-Vorbeck was a general in the Imperial German Army and the commander of its forces in German East Africa. For four long years, with a force that never exceeded 14,000 (3,000 Germans and 11,000 Africans), he held in check a much larger force of 300,000 British, Belgian, and Portuguese troops. His loyal troops and he endured hunger, malaria and the elements in what has been described by Edwin Palmer Hoyt as 'the greatest single guerrilla operation in history, and the most successful.'

Lettow-Vorbeck's force was undefeated in the field. His fluency in the Swahili language earned the respect and admiration of his African soldiers. He appointed black officers, proclaiming to his men what he believed in his heart:
'we are all Africans here'.

[Above: Poster bearing the image of General Paul Emil von Lettow-Vorbeck on horseback leading African soldiers. Text at top reads 'Colonial War Funds Donation'.]

• The historian Charles Miller stated 'It is probable that no white commander of the era had so keen an appreciation of the African's worth not only as a fighting man but as a man.'

After the armistice of WWI Lettow-Vorbeck's army surrendered to the British. The British repatriated the white German soldiers but confined the askaris in filthy concentration camps. General von Lettow-Vorbeck refused to leave until he had won promises of decent treatment and early release for his black troops.

General von Lettow-Vorbeck brought back some of his askari soldiers to Germany where they served in his brand of Freikorps.

[Above: Postcard with the picture of General Paul Emil von Lettow-Vorbeck and Governor Dr. Heinrich Schnee.]

'In 1953 in Dar Es Salam (Tanzania-ed.) I wanted to greet my old Askari. At mid-day I arrived at the local market place and I was surrounded by over 400 Askari, they had tears in their eyes and covered my hands in kisses. Around open campfires the Askari talked all through the night and they said that I had shaken the hand of every one of them, they said it is something that the English never did'.
-Paul von Lettow-Vorbeck, from his 1957 book Mein Leben (My Life)

'The Wehrwolf movement represents a minority. Only the best of our people belong to it.
It is more worthwhile and more promising of success to fight with a hundred determined men and women than to have a thousand [nominal] members.'

-Radio Wehrwolf, April 7, 1945.

Hermann Löns was a life long nature and animal lover who found immortality through his beloved Der Wehrwolf novel. Although he wrote a handful of other books, none are so well known and loved as Der Wehrwolf. To this day over seven million books by Löns have been printed. He was also a beloved poet, in 1911 he released a collection of poems. One of these poems, the 'Matrosenlied' (Sailors' Song) has the chorus 'Denn wir fahren gegen Engelland' (For we are sailing against England), was put to music by Herms Niel and was one of the most-sung German military songs of World War II!

But Hermann Löns would never see the fame and wealth that largely escaped him during his tumultuous life. At the age of 48, after first being rejected for ill health, he managed to join the German Army and fight in WWI. On the dark day of September 26, 1914 the great patriot and naturalist fell. Löns died just three weeks after enlisting on September 3. Of the 120 brave men in his unit only about two dozen survived an assault on a French position at Loivre near Reims in France.

[Above: Hermann Löns (August 29, 1866 – September 26, 1914)]

[Above: Third Reich era copy of Der Wehrwolf. By 1945 the Wehrmacht alone sold more than 865,000 copies of the book! This made him one of the most successful authors in Germany at the time.]

• Löns was a poet whose poems often dealt with the natural world. He was a pioneer of nature conservationism. In fact, he was co-initiator of the Heideschutzpark at Wilseder Berg which later grew into the famous Naturpark Lüneburger Heide (Lüneburg Heath Nature Park), which was the first nature reserve in Germany.

[Above: This copy of Der Wehrwolf was printed with proceeds going to help needy soldiers in the Wehrmacht (left). On the right is one of the many editions for soldiers to read at the front.]

• Löns was buried on the battlefield where he fell. In 1934 his remains were located and reburied in Germany. Today there are some 113 memorials to Löns in Germany, plus another eight in Austria and 19 in other countries. There are also 247 streets and roads in Germany which have been named after him. Twelve schools also bear his name and even a stadium.

[Above: March 1916 provisional stamps. These relatively rare postage stamps were never issued. The condition of the majority of these stamps is poor due to the fact that they were buried in wet soil and later dug up (in August 1921)! Only a small part of the issues were salvageable, and after being returned to Germany from East Africa, they were put up for auction in May 1922. How odd is that?]

• Athena is the goddess of wisdom, courage, inspiration, civilization, law and justice, strategic warfare, mathematics, strength, strategy, the arts, crafts, and skill.
Most interesting in this context, Athena is a devoted companion of heroes and is the patron goddess of heroic endeavor. She was called 'Minerva' by the Romans and Athena by the Greeks.

Here is a quote from the 1930s book 'Die Kunst im Dritten Reich':

'Athena is the goddess of war and art. She personifies the strong, fresh spiritual strength of the human being. She stands freely, upright. She recognizes, measures, and uses the strength of all things in the victorious battle with the enemy and in the conquest of nature for the creation of art. The picture of the goddess is the fitting expression of the heroic character of the Führer and the National Socialist movement and, in the deepest sense, of the art the Führer wants. An art form for which the artists has to fight in a serious and concentrated working procedure so that he may receive a blessing from it.'

Many other medals and the like were inscribed with the holy image of Athena. Here's a description of one from the Academy of Art of Munich:

'The Academy of Art of Munich gave Hitler a golden medal. On the front was the head of Pallas Athena. The back featured Pegasus. The medal carried the following inscription: 'To the leader of the German people, Adolf Hitler, who has put national thought in the center of our spiritual life and who has rendered back to art it's old rights. His prophetic plans have given art its own task, to be the language of the people.'
