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.

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.

Watch "Hellstorm - The Documentary"

Published by carolyn on Thu, 2015-05-14 23:45

It's high time I mention this incredible feat of revisionist history produced by Kyle Hunt of Renegade Broadcasting Network. I finally set aside the time to watch it, and only got through half of it before something interrupted my viewing. When I returned to it I found I didn't have the stomach to continue. Two days later, I did watch the rest. I haven't watched it a second time, but I will have to do so. It's hard, but necessary.

Some comments I can make:

The Heretics' Hour: Nick Kollerstrom, author of "Breaking the Spell"

Carolyn interviews London-based Nicholas Kollerstrom on his new book Breaking the Spell: Holocaust Myth & Reality. After being thrown out of his British university, where he had spent 15 years as a science historian, for daring to publish 3 simple research papers on how Zyklon was used in WWII, including in the German labor camps, Nick had nowhere to turn except into the Revisionist movement. Lucky for us!

Subjects from the book under discussion:

  • The non-existence of homicidal gas chambers, and the science behind that claim;
  • "Holocaust" as the new world religion featuring 6 million martyrs put to death in fiery furnaces;
  • Bletchley Park Decrypts: How cracking the Enigma code may have helped the British win the war, but undermines the extermination camp narrative;
  • The Reinhardt camps controversy - David Irving, the Korherr Report and Höfle Telegram;
  • Appendix IV: Know Your Rights when it comes to "holocaust denial," "hate speech" and "inciting the public";
  • and much more.

Kollerstrom is an engaging personality who also authored Terror on the Tube (2009) on the London 7/7 subway bombings. His website is http://whatreallyhappened.info

The Heretics" Hour: Does Germany owe Greece ... anything?

Greece has come up with "war crimes" from WWII against "Nazi" Germany that they want today's German government to compensate them for, and which they say amount to several hundred billions of euros. Germany's economy minister has called it "stupid" but the new Greek government, with a communist at its head, isn't giving up. Are these legitimate claims or just another instance of wanting to "stick it to Germany?"

Carolyn looks into the historical background of the claims and at what some financial experts say.

The Final Flight of Poldi Wenger - April 10, 1945

Published by carolyn on Fri, 2015-04-10 11:31

Today is the 70th Anniversary of the death at age 23 of Oberleutnant Leopold Wenger, Jr after over 400 combat missions in the defense of the Reich. At the time of his death, Poldi was Squadron Commander of Schlachtgeschwader 10/Jagd 2 stationed at Markersdorf airfield near St. Pöltan, close to Vienna. In this year of 2015 with so many 70th anniversaries relating to the end of World War II going on, this one should not go unnoticed.

To honor Poldi, I am presenting this report, in a somewhat edited form, written by his younger brother, Willy Wenger, about Willy's search for information on Poldi's last days and the dogfight above Vienna with Russian fighter planes that brought about the belly landing by the seriously wounded pilot and Knight's Cross holder. See here for more background. As fate would have it, April 10 was the birthday of Leopold Wenger Sr., who had an especially close bond with his first-born son.

My Investigation

Spring 1997

The winter of this year was particularly long-lasing and a lot of work was waiting for me in the garden. No sooner had I made up my mind to dig up a very extensive root stock than a policeman in uniform came into our garden. He waved his hand when he noticed my puzzled face. I could not explain his appearance. Had I been up to something?

Text of Himmler's Secret Speech to Gauleiters, August 3, 1944, with commentary

Published by carolyn on Wed, 2015-04-01 22:17

Translated by Shoahbloger

Translation of a secret speech for Gauleiters (district leaders of NSDAP) held 2 weeks after the assassination attempt on Hitler by Stauffenberg. Himmler talks about the treacherous and defeatist attitudes activities in the leadership of the Wehrmacht before and during the War,  about the conspiracy to kill Hitler and take power in Germany, and the consequences of the 20th of July. A copy of this speech was deposited by Martin Bormann in the Central Archive of NSDAP and today it is at the Institut for Zeitgeschichte in Munich. It was published in Vierteljahrshefte für Zeitgeschichte in 1953.
