Peasant spreading manure. Hitler said of the German peasant farmers, "The peasantry is the solid backbone of the nation, for husbandry is the most chancy occupation on earth."

Carolyn Yeager and Ray Goodwin read and comment on the Aug. 3-6, 1942 lunch and dinner table monologues by the German Leader, as taken down in shorthand by aide Heinrich Heim, who has returned. Included in this episode:

  • Hitler uses the instinctual behaviors within bee and ant colonies to explain the value of merciless perseverence when its a question of survival;
  • American military courts established in Britain - Poor military decision-making influenced by Jews;
  • Food and food supply - stories of Prince Arenberg;
  • Praise plus criticism for the Italians -more on ruling the Eastern territories;
  • Living in open rather than crowded spaces gives one a wider view - St. Petersburg and Moscow must be destroyed - creating markets in the occupied East;
  • Mistreatment of the peasant class led to migration of some of the best of Germans - France and Italy both have strong peasantry which stabilizes a nation.

The Heretics' Hour: What the Fuehrer did and didn't say in his Platterhof talk

Adolf Hitler's view on race and the German Volk in his talk to Officers of May 1944 has been misrepresented by Veronica Clark in two books that she has sold on Amazon. Carolyn discusses the most interesting parts of the talk and points out the mistakes in Clark's translation:

  • Changing the word Volk to Rasse, or race, in one instance where it could not be an honest error (on page 48 of the German copy, shown at right - click on image for enlarged view);
  • Other inexplicably poor translation seemingly designed to detract from Hitler's strict attitude on race;
  • Attributing to Adolf Hitler in her foreward a false quote that she knew was actually written by another man, Otto Wagener;
  • Hadding Scott comes on the line in the last 15-20 minutes and confirms the correctness of Porter's translation over Clark's in some specific instances.

The Führer's talk to Generals and Officers on May 26, 1944 at the Platterhof in Obersaltzberg, Part 2 of 2

Published by carolyn on Sun, 2015-02-15 20:17

The Platterhof Hotel accommodated National Socialist events and visitors of the Führer, including military officers, when he was staying at his private home on the Obersalzberg.

 Continued from Part 1:

Translated by Carlos Whitlock Porter

The Führer is speaking:

But first, of course, it’s not a pretty picture, I admit it. At first, we had all sorts of difficulties, and you can really get some white hair before you’ve put everything back in order again. But I always counted on one thing: the time will come when that will all have been worth it; then you’ll see that this selection process, which has been made one of the hard principles of the party, is correct. And really, that’s the most basic thing: the most decisive. Since today, when we speak of a national community, you can only do so on the condition of suitable leadership and people.

There are a lot of training courses being given today for officers, in the so-called Ordenburgen [fortresses built by the Teutonic Knights], not just because they’re suited for it but because that gives them an insight into the way we start out with our youth, building up their education. Of course, gentlemen, nothing is perfect. You ought not to forget: we came to power in 1933. The war began in 1939. So we had barely 6 years. During the war, there’s a limit to what we can do to continue building, but there’s no doubt about it: when our people have had 50 years of peace, then we’ll see something: the whole nation will be completely organized, and the leadership of the nation will consist of the best political leadership corps we’ve ever had, carefully selected from the best we’ve got. There’s no doubt about that.

New translation of Hitler's May 1944 talk to officers at the Platterhof

Published by carolyn on Wed, 2015-02-11 18:40

Adolf Hitler greets and decorates officers at his Wolfsschanze headquarters in East Prussia in 1943.

INTRODUCTION by Carolyn Yeager

This unrehearsed talk was taken down by stenographers at the time it was given by Adolf Hitler to his top officers. A single typed copy exists in the archives of the Institut für Zeitgeschichte in Munich, Germany. To obtain it, a Munich woman familiar with the Institute had to go there in person and request it, then make a copy on the premises, after which she mailed the copied pages to me for a fee. It consists of 70 typed, double-spaced pages, with some words on every page illegible because of fold marks.

I made 3 sets of copies and mailed them to 3 persons, one of which was Carlos Porter, who agreed to translate it--a really hard job considering the length and the poor quality of the original. I asked Carlos to do the translation in a more or less direct fashion, not concerning himself overmuch with the quality of the prose. I wanted the exact idea of what the Fuehrer said and meant. Since I'm not in the business of selling books for a profit,  the ease of readability for the general public is not my first concern. My first concern is a very clear rendition of the ideas Hitler was expressing to his audience.

The Gleiwitz "False Flag" Incident is Pure Fiction

By Carolyn Yeager

copyright 2012 Carolyn Yeager

Following Monday night's Heretics' Hour program on the Dreyfus Affair, I am featuring this article from 2012 for awhile because it was discussed during the program.

This article is based on the notes for my radio program of March 19, 2012, and expanded to include further research and also clarification of a few details. I hope readers will continue to spread this article far and wide. It should really be on my "Most Popular Articles" list but it doesn't have enough reads.

Hundreds attend memorial mass for WWII Croatian leader in Zagreb

Published by carolyn on Tue, 2014-12-30 13:15

Hundreds of Croatians attended a memorial mass in the Basilica of the Heart of Christ in Zagreb on Sunday, Dec. 28, for World War II-era leader Ante Pavelić [shown at right] on the 49th anniversary of his death, it was reported by local media.

Pavelić was the founder of the nationalist Ustaše movement which advocated for an independent Croatia and called for armed rebellion against the Kingdom of Yugoslavia. Croatia was put into this brand new “state” of Yugoslavia when it was created at the Paris Peace Talks after the First World War.

Yugoslavia's capital Belgrade allied the state with Stalin and the Bolshevist Soviet Union. After the Germans conquered Yugoslavia in 1941, Pavelić became the new head of state of Croatia and allied his regime with National Socialist Germany and Facist Italy.

In Memoriam: Hans Krampe 1943-2014

Published by carolyn on Mon, 2014-12-22 12:47

Hans Krampe admired this City Hall in Nauen, East Germany, where he grew up, and wanted to use it as a picture representing himself. It was built around 1885.

It is with deep sadness that I learned only today that Hans Krampe, the gifted German emigre to British Columbia, Canada, has passed on. While he was with us, he was a force for uncompromising truth about Third Reich Germany and Germany's role in World War II.

Hans was a typical German liberal thinker who came upon the truth about his homeland late in life, which was probably a hard blow. I too didn't learn the truth until late in life and my reaction is to be very angry about it. We are angry about what was withheld from us, and have no patience with its continuance.

I believe I first came in contact with Hans through reading something by him at Arthur Topham's website, Radical Press. Arthur was a guest on one of my earlest The Heretics' Hour programs in March 2010:  http://carolynyeager.net/heretics-hour-interview-arthur-topham

Hans and Arthur were neighbors in Quesnel, BC and Hans had begun contributing, both editorially and financially, to a physical newspaper Arthur started in 1998. Hans and I began corresponding and he agreed to come on my radio program and tell about his interesting childhood history in East Germany. This is the program from March 21, 2011:  http://carolynyeager.net/heretics-hour-interview-hans-krampe
