First Jew chosen to become conductor of the Berlin Philharmonic

Published by carolyn on Wed, 2015-07-01 00:12

Here he is - described by one disappointed critic as a mythical figure from Wagner's operas, “the tiny gnome, the Jewish caricature,” which brought on cries of "anti-Semitic hatred."

The next chief conductor of the Berlin Philharmonic has been chosen: He is Kirill Petrenko, a Jew born and raised until age 18 in Russia! [Strangely, or not, the announcement was made on June 22 (the date of the German invasion of the Soviet Union in 1941).] Isn't it wonderful, and so international as befits an “international city” like Berlin, yes?

The problem for true Berliners, though, is that Petrenko was selected over a Berlin-born German who many expected to get that job: Christian Thielemann, currently chief conductor for the Sächsische Staatskapelle Dresden and former music director of the Munich (Bavarian) Philharmonic. Thielemann is 56 years old (born April 1, 1959), with a brilliant career in opera, being a regular conductor at Bayreuth and the Salzburg Festivals.

In 2003, Thielemann was awarded the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany (Bundesverdienstkreuz). In October 2011, he received honorary membership of the Royal Academy of Music in London. This year Thielemann won the Richard Wagner Award (Richard-Wagner-Preis) of Leipzig. He is described as a world-renowned expert on the German sound.

Carolyn reads chapters 5 and 6. Chapter 5, "The Testimony of Witnesses," looks into how credible witness testimony was obtained by the judges. All witnesses took a "real" oath, and the judges sought verification for all testimony, sometimes going to great length to do so.

Chapter 6, "Expert Medical Opinion" explains how medical officers distinguish the nature of wounds, whether from battle or deliberate mutilation, whether inflicted before or after death. The most common mutilations (which occurred daily on the Eastern Front) were the gouging out of eyes and the cutting off of genitals. Severing feet and hands was also carried out by the savage Russian and Jewish partisans. 1hr12m

Left: Corporal Hans Muth, victim of mutilation: medical examination determined that his eyes had been deliberately put out while he was unconcious.

 

What will be the fate of Kevin Wheatcroft's incredible "Nazi" collection?

Published by carolyn on Sat, 2015-06-27 16:40

Kevin Wheatcroft stands in his private home in England in 2015, next to what he says was Adolf Hitler's favorite war portrait of himself. Enlarge

What will happen to Kevin Wheatcroft's' amazing collection of World War II German military vehicles and National-Socialist memorabilia now that he is publicizing it to the world?

The hefty Mr. Wheatcroft is 55 years old, and looks to me like a pretty good candidate for a heart attack in the next 10 years. How will he preserve what he has spent his life collecting? -with more heartfelt feelings than financial ones, it appears. The son of a WWII British "war hero" and his German war bride, he told a Guardian newspaper reporter that "Adolf and Hermann" are "my real love." If that is true, we can expect Mr. Wheatcroft to have a care about what happens to his collection.

Will he build and endow a museum (or two) to permanently house it all? But what can stop the Jewish-British government from confiscating the whole she-bang and destroying it? Or turning any museum he creates into a "documentation center" which tells the whole story as a criminal enterprise by "Adolf and Hermann" (and company).

Carolyn reads chapters 3 and 4. Chapter three is titled "Related German Agencies" and describes the numerous other official agencies with whom the War Crimes Bureau collaborated, and how cooperation was carried out.

Chapter four, "Methods of Obtaining Evidence" tells us how cases were built and gives some vivid examples of mutilations and other outrages committed against German soldiers on the East, West and South Fronts. The bulk of the testimony (approx. 85%) came from ten's of thousands of sworn witnesses giving depositions to military judges or local courts. 1hr12m

"Lost" Third Reich art treasures come to light

Published by carolyn on Thu, 2015-06-25 00:52

Some top-notch famous sculptures by Adolf Hitler's two favorite artists, for whom he built gigantic studios for their super-large works to be created for public buildings and public spaces, have been confiscated by the Berlin State Office of Criminal Investigation. It is the preliminary determination that the rightful owner of this artwork is the German State, or German government.

Among the masterpieces discovered and expropriated from their current owners are (click on images to enlarge):

"Die Wehrmacht," one of two sculptures created by Arno Breker for the main courtyard of Hitler's New Reich Chancellery in 1939 was discovered on a large estate near Kiel in northern Germany.

In this first installment, Carolyn reads selections from the Introduction by Alfred de Zayas and the full content of chapters one and two. Some highlights:

  • Some history of war crimes investigations from WWI;
  • Learning from that war, the German govt. established a new war crimes bureau on Sept. 4, 1939;
  • Name, history and statements from some of the Wehrmacht judges;
  • The author's negative attitude toward the Third Reich and praise for members of the resistance brings up some issues;
  • Hitler's "Barbarossa Decree" of 13 Sept. 1941 is read in full and discussed. 1h33m

An idealist and United Nations advisor, Alfred de Zayas today still has hope for Democracy and the sovereignty of nations.

New Podcast series: The Wehrmacht War Crimes Bureau, 1939-1945

I'm starting a new podcast series, a reading by me of The Wehrmacht War Crimes Bureau, 1939-1945 by Alfred M. de Zayas. I hope to have the first installment posted on Monday, June 22.

I've owned this book for a number of years and I've known of Dr. de Zayas for even longer. He is a great friend of German culture who has done yeoman research into the treatment of ethnic Germans by the communist Poles, Czechs, Yugoslavs, Russians, etc. during WWII and post-war. This resulted in the ambitious War Crimes book (German edition 1979; English 1989) and two other books: Nemesis at Potsdam: The expulsion of the Germans from the East, 1989 and A Terrible Revenge: The Ethnic Cleansing of the East European Germans, 1993.

De Zayas was born in Havana, Cuba of Spanish parents in 1947 but came to the US after the Castro revolution. He received a law degree from Harvard Law School and a Doctorate in modern history at the University of Göttingen. He is a human rights specialist who worked at the United Nations from 1981 to 2003 in the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights. He is known as an advocate of “the right to homeland” as a universal human right. From his long association with the United Nations, you will understand that he necessarily takes a politically correct view of Adolf Hitler and “Nazism,” which will be evident at times in the reading. Although I heartily disagree with this position, it plays a very small part in the whole and his honest and documented overview of this subject has much to teach us. 

The intro/outro music for this series is from the stirring Deutschland Uber Alles sung by Heino.

How Jews distort the nations they live in

Published by carolyn on Fri, 2015-06-19 16:06

The following news article is an example of how Jews distort a nation's meaning and historical lntegrity. Martin Luther is one of Germany's greatest sons, of whom all Germans are rightfully proud, but some Jew, speaking on behalf of some council they formed in Germany, calling themselves German Jews, puts himself into a superior position to Luther by demanding that today's Protestant church officials censure and condemn their founder because of his 'anti-Semitic' text On the Jews and Their Lies (shown below left as the original publication in 1543). 

From this example we can see that, contrary to Jewish propaganda, Jews do NOT enrich other nations with their presence. Instead, they behave as a foreign element which seeks to alter the native beliefs and ideals of a people for the purpose of getting this people to make a special place in their nation for these Jews and their progeny. It is exactly the same practice as that of the cuckoo bird (right, disgustingly voracious baby cuckoo being fed by a brown warbler after taking over its nest).

German Jewish leader asks Protestants to condemn Luther’s anti-Semitism

BERLIN (JTA) — Germany’s top Jewish leader urged Protestants to confront and condemn anti-Jewish teachings of Martin Luther, who began the Protestant Reformation.

Speaking at a conference in Berlin last week, Josef Schuster, head of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, said he hopes for a clear sign from the Protestant Church condemning Luther’s anti-Jewish writings, ahead of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation in 2017.

Hitler Youth at Nuremberg Party Day in 1935: the future German leadership before the Jews brought about world war against them. enlarge

Carolyn and Ray conclude this special reading of Adolf Hitler's private address to Generals and officers on May 26, 1944. In the second half, Hitler emphasizes how he overcame the class system in Germany, and the opportunities for advancement that exist for ALL German folk. He talked frankly about the need for his Jewish program and called it ruthless but not cruel, making the point that kindness to the Jews meant cruelty to his own people.

He encourages his officers to care for their soldiers as he cares for the German people.

In this 2nd part we find that Veronica Clark changed the word "Volk" to "Rasse" (People to Race) in her translation that she is selling in a book. We also find that Hitler never mentioned "the Slavic question" and remained the same as ever toward Poland. 1hr33m28s

The Heretics' Hour: Ray Goodwin reads Hitler's NOT so significant May 1944 address to military officers

The Fuehrer at the Platterhof Hotel on Obersalzburg July 4, 1944 to address a gathering of industrialists, ministers and military officers. In uniform from left, Erhard Milch, Albert Speer, Rudolf Schmundt (behind Hitler, who was killed in the bomb blast of July 20th), Nicolaus Von Below and Julius Schaub on far right.

This private address by Adolf Hitler to Generals and Officers that took place at the Platterhof Hotel on May 26, 1944 is very interesting but is NOT Hitler's “most significant speech” as has been falsely promoted by non-historian Veronica K. Clark. It wasn't even a speech! As he addressed the officers, he was sitting down comfortably in a room where they were also seated. He did not speak from a prepared text.

Less than two months later (pictured above), on July 4, 1944, he addressed others of his staff in the same room of the same hotel, which he used often for special meetings.
