Adolf Hitler and the Army of Mankind

[Above: 'Wir alle sind Soldaten' = 'We are all Soldiers' (primitive late war graphic)]

     Page twenty-one. We'll start this with one of the strangest, unexpected profiles: Jews fighting for the Third Reich. If you don't already know, you are in for a mind blowing ride. Yes, there were thousands of Jews, around 150,000 that fought for Adolf Hitler. But I thought we were told they were all in concentration camps and being exterminated? More proof their narrative is bullshit. Wanna see more proof that our masters lied to us? Check out this German phone book from 1942/1943! Thousands of Jews listed, tons of businesses and other services ran by Jews. In BERLIN -- the capital of the Reich.

The rabbit hole just gets deeper and deeper doesn't it? It's all kind of hard to swallow after everything we've learned isn't it? So where is the truth? Why did they lie to us and lump all of the Jews into one giant pile of victims? Money, which they still get from Germany -- 75 years later, and counting!!! Sympathy. "Oh those poor, poor Jews..." The eternal victims. But what about that 150,000? I'm sure the commies and the Americans treated them badly and hurt their feelings. I think they should be getting payments too.

But the lies go much deeper. Jews were claiming the six million number as early as 1916. "Give us money now or six million Jews will starve." Check these out and fall deeper into the rabbit hole...

There were 150,000 'Nazi' Jews who fought for the Third Reich during WWII, including two generals, eight lieutenant generals, five major generals, 23 colonels and many of them no doubt giving their lives in combat. Why did they hide this from the world? Why were there a ton of Jewish businesses in 1943 in Berlin [see phone book above]? Of course, it's because it wouldn't fit their narrative of the poor defensless victim.

Bryan Rigg, from Cambridge University, has uncovered seventeen Jews who were awarded the Knight's Cross, Germany's highest military honor. Rigg also interviewed the former West German Chancellor, Helmut Schmidt, who had been an officer in the Luftwaffe even though he had a Jewish grandfather. Rigg had documented 1,200 cases and conducted more than 300 interviews of soldiers or their relatives. He uncovereed 30,000 documents and detailed the Jewish ancestry of two field marshals, 10 generals, 14 colonels and 30 majors.

'The revelation that Germans of Jewish blood, knowing the Nazi regime for what it was, served Hitler as uniformed members of his armed forces must come as a profound shock. It will surprise even professional historians of the Nazi years.'
--John Keegan, author of The Face of Battle and The Second World War

[Above: Some recent works. More and more information is coming to the light revealing more of their lies]

That is because these Jewish men knew what everyone else knew, National Socialist Germany was not the place that the victors painted it as. Below are just a few of the documented men with Jewish blood who fought for the Third Reich...

[Below: Emil Maurice, half Jewish, one of the Old Fighters who was beside Adolf Hitler during the Putsch. He was also the first personal driver of Adolf Hitler, not to mention an early member of the SS, and perhaps most importantly, a member of the Personal Guard of Adolf Hitler, the Stabswache. In 1923 he was imprisoned in Landsberg with Hitler for the failed Putsch. Note that in this picturee he wears the highly coveted Blood Order medal, for those who participated in the 1923 Putsch. After the war the Allies sentenced him to four years in slave labor camp.]

[Below: Admiral Bernhard Rogge, quarter Jewish, was awarded Germany's highest medal -- the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross plus the additional coveted oak leaves (not to mention both the Iron Cross 1st class and 2nd class). He was also awarded a samurai sword from the emperor of Japan.]

[Below: A half-Jewish Field-marshal named Erhard Milch. He was a personal friend of Hermann Goering. He joined the National Socialist party on April 1, 1929. He was awarded the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross on May 4, 1940. After Milch was promoted to Field-marshal he was also put in charge of all aircraft production. At the end of the war, after remaining faithful and fighting until the last moments, he was captured by Allied forces on the Baltic coast on May 4, 1945. Upon surrendering, he presented his coveted Field-marshal baton to the British Brigadier commando Derek Mills-Roberts, who cowardly broke the baton over Milch's head in a savage beating! A criminal act, not to mention despicable, but typical of the Allied code of conduct. Many, many soldiers were simply murdered upon surrendering and buried in mass graves. Many more were murdered in P.O.W. 'camps' (open fields with no shelter or food) or concentration camps. Another favorite of the Allies was to crush the testicles of their prisoners. I shit you not. Look it up for yourself. Milch was imprisoned for 'war crimes' in Landsberg, and was released almost a decade later in 1954.]

The crowd, Jewish residents of Lodz, screamed 'Herzlich willkommen' (heartfelt welcome). This is from Litzmanstadt, a Jewish ghetto in Poland.

[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:

'...by 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 artist has to fight in a serious and concentrated working procedure so that he may receive a blessing from it.'

'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.
