Ukrainians and their relationships with their neighbors through the centuries. How did Ukraine become a Slavic nation? Just how much of a role did Hitler play in the sufferings of Ukrainians in 1941-44?

  • The Goths, the Huns and the Khazars all settled in the area at different times;
  • The Varangians (Scandinavians) arrived around 880 and created the most powerful state in Europe: Kievan Rus;
  • It was devastated by a 13th Century Mongol invasion and eventually succeeded by the state of Galicia-Volhynia;
  • Lithuanians and Poles controlled vast estates in Ukraine, the Cossacks led an uprising and Russians moved into the Crimea;
  • Hitler reunites Eastern Galicia and Volhynia with Ukraine;
  • What led to the violent ethnic cleansing between Poles and Ukrainians in Volhynia in 1943;
  • Why the spirit of extreme nationalism contradicted the concept of the Slavic nations and National Socialist Germany fighting the Soviets together.

See that inverted triangle in the center? That is a beautiful example of the kind of Ukrainian floral/fruit design that I like so much. I believe such folk art developed from the importance to them of the fertility of the earth, which Ukraine definitely represents. Enlarge

The tendency of the Czechs to invent a history for themselves that is far grander than what actually took place is similar to what we've already learned about Polish "history." The number of Czechs in Czecho-Slovakia was only 7 million, yet they wanted to be a great, ruling European nation-state. However, they still today claim the German city of Prague (pictured right). Included in this program:

  • The Paris Peace Treaties forcibly annexed German, Hungarian, Ukrainian and Polish territories to a Czech core, forming CzechoSlovakia;
  • The majority Czechs took a criminal and genocidal attitude toward the minorities;
  • It took 18 painful years for the situation to gain the serious attention of the European Powers who had created the mess in the first place;
  • Adolf Hitler finally broke through the dilly-dallying with the Munich Agreement in 1938;
  • Post-WW2 history give a slanted picture of the end of this illegitimate state to make Hitler out to be an aggressor, rather than a savior and restorer.

Poland – the Great Pretender. The truth about its origins and history tear away the pious mask of the victim and show a cruel-minded victimizer at work – still today. Carolyn Yeager explains why the treatment meted out to the Poles by National-Socialist Germany was justified. 2hr53min.

  • Was the "1000 years" of Polish history invented in more recent times;
  • The late appearance of Polish literature and written language, in the 18th and 19th centuries;
  • One million of the original  2.5 million Germans left the provence of Poland before 1939 because of persecution;
  • The most extreme brutality was directed against the Ukrainians because they were the largest minority group and voted to send their own representatives to the Sejm;
  • Poles had never succeeded in forming a successful state on their own, for example in 1916 Germany gave them independence and made a pact with Pilsudski;
  • Poles insisted most of all that all minorities speak Polish, send their children to Polish-only schools and become totally Polonized;
  • Many examples given of horrible treatment of Ukrainians, Germans and White Russians mainly to discourage them from maintaining their own communities and language;
  • Markus calls in and gives valuable input, plus helps me sum up at the end.

Hitler meets with Polish Foreign Minister Josef Beck in 1937. Beck was a chain smoker and Hitler, who mostly refused to allow smoking in his presence, made an exception for Beck but doesn't seem too happy about it.

Carolyn continues from last week, answering accusations that Hitler hated Slavs and his anti-Slav policies caused Germany to lose the war. 2hr30m.

  • Polish car-stealing gangs operate in Frankfurt am der Oder in Brandenburg State by just crossing the river because of EU Schengen laws;
  • Using quotes from Mein Kampf as representing Hitler's policies in 1939 is absurd, yet most Hitler detractors do it;
  • Persecution of ethnic Germans trapped in Poland and Czechoslovakia is recorded in online reading at Wintersonnenwende archive;
  • Hitler speaks of his invasions of both Poland and Soviet Union as due to forces beyond his control;
  • Serbia's role in WWI revisited - assassinated Austrian Archduke and wife under orders from Russia, helped along and encouraged by France;
  • Austrian Emperor was not unreasonable for wanting some punishment for and restraint in Serbia;
  • Serbia's long history of failure and frustration of nationalist goals, and warring behavior with it's neighbors;
  • EU member states should be classified into an order something like A, B and C groups, and any new European Order should too;
  • Did Hitler have a hatred of Serbia because of 1914?

  • Hitler sees the mentality of the Russians revealed in their Feb. 24th attempted assassination of Amb. Franz von Papen in Turkey;
  • Explains why the Turks are better allies than the Bulgarians;
  • Long exposition of the Policy of the Reich in the East, with historical perspective including Charlemagne and Frederick the Great;
  • Why Frederick the Great was a better man than Napoleon and the weakness of hereditary monarchies;
  • Hitler concludes that the future Germany must be a republic with a Führer at the head, chosen by a specially selected Senate.
  • Very important ideas are presented in this episode.

Carolyn Yeager responds to Wolf Wall Street's request that she "resolve this question (the Slav Question) herself" by addressing the issue head-on. In the second hour, a call from Markus added much of interest to the program, and toward the end of the 2nd hour Wolf Wall Street (Bob) also called and we had a 3-way discussion. 2hr19min. Subjects included:

  • Slavic is a language group covering a large area of Eastern Europe;
  • Paul Goble reports on the inventions about history currently being propagated in Russia apparently with govt. approval;
  • Connection between Serbia and Russia, and their important role in instigating WWI;
  • How do Whites deal with the differences between themselves in order to remain something of a cohesive group with trust between them;
  • How to order a White society.

100 years ago: A German "triple triumph" established U-boat warfare

Published by carolyn on Sun, 2014-09-21 21:55

"Victories of U-9" - a contemporary German postcard showing the photo of Weddigen against the background of the sinking "Aboukir" and "Hogue".

On September 22, 1914 Lieutenant Otto Weddigen sunk three British armored cruisers. He was the first war hero for Germany.

A mere 600 tons of water was displaced when the Imperial U-boat "SMS U9" was immersed. Only 60 meters long, the boat had a driving force of about 1000 hp – not particularly strong. Although only four years old in September 1914, it was already outdated because it had petrol instead of more powerful diesel engines to power itself over water.

The three Goliaths the "U9" sighted in the early morning of September 22, 1914 were even older, but each was 144 meters long, with 12,000 tons displacement, 23.3-inch guns and 760-man crews,

Not the latest battleships of the British Home Fleet and the German High Seas Fleet, certainly—but each of these ironclads was deadly dangerous for a single small submarine anyway. Unless several special circumstances came together. That was the case on this Tuesday.

Everything you'll ever want to know about the Saint Anna (Sanktanna) settlement in Hungary

The History of the Donauschwaben

Compiled and translated by Wilhelm Kriessmann, April 2008

I have had this report in my alt files all this time. I knew I had it and had sent it to some family members, but I had forgotten how complete and how interesting it is. It was my dear friend Willi Kriessmann who encouraged me to study up on my Donauschwaben ancestors and provided me with his assistance, including the connection to Alf Kuhrt. Willi was an admirer of Maria Theresia and of this eastern settlement project. So with thanks and appreciation to him, I present it now as part of my Ancestry section that I'm building. ~Carolyn

Austrian Empress Maria Theresia started her 40-year reign in 1740. She was beloved of her people and had 16 children with her husband Francis 1 !

After the Osmans (Turks – Ottoman Empire) were pushed back during the 17th and 18th Century, the Habsburg emperors Leopold I, Karl VI, Josef II and Empress Maria Theresia began to populate the devastated areas of South Hungary. In the lowlands of the Danube and the Theiss (Tisza), farmers and craftsmen primarily from Southwest regions of the Empire were systematically settled. The total number of settlers, organized by the government or private enterprise, reached about 150,000. The majority were from Alsace-Lorrain, Palatinate, Baden-Wuertemberg, Luxemburg and Bavaria (including Franconia).

The Austro-Hungarian Empire in 1748-1776 (yellowish-tan) included good parts of the Banat and Transylvania where Germans were invited to settle. Enlarge

The Racial Awakening of the German People by Dr. Rudolf Frercks, parts 9-10

Published by carolyn on Sat, 2014-09-13 15:31

This article is reposted from National-Socialist-Worldview.

This booklet by Dr. Frercks, the vice-director of the NSDAP's Office of Racial Policy, was originally published in 1935. The edition on which this translation was based is dated 1942. Translation by Hadding Scott, 2014.

Translated: "The right choice of a mate is the prerequisite for a worthy and happy community of life. Make your decision only when you have a clear picture of the hereditary traits of the other's kin. Marry only the offspring of congenitally healthy, racially kindred stock. Mental and physical heritage is resurrected in the children. In your choice lies the destiny of your lineage and of the nation." Enlarge

Part 9 - Miscegenation

Our leader has coined the saying, "What is not race on this Earth, is chaff."* With that he conveyed that the value of a people lies in its race, its blood. A people that ceases to be loyal to its image, to its kind, and to its mission in history, has lost its right to life and is on its way to its demise. This has already played out many times in history. The descendants of the ancient Greeks and Romans no longer have anything physically and mentally in common with their ancestors who created those high cultures of antiquity. The men that live there today are different from those whose artworks we still admire today, whose philosophy and writings we still study today.
