Margaret Huffstickler returns with another great musical show -- a tour of German Christmas music that was heard and enjoyed during the Third Reich. Eleven selections are played, ranging from children's choirs and soft lullabys to the voices of soldiers from all the many fronts in 1942 singing Stille Nacht together connected by radio ... and by their comradeship.

Margaret translates and comments on each selection, giving us some background information and a sense of how Germans celebrated Weinachten at that time. I hope you enjoy it and Fröhliche Weinachten to you all!! [1hr50min]

Can you imagine a Holocaust-free world - or at least Western world? As the "facts and figures" upholding the holohoax continue to fall to the wayside as they are proven false, what will continue to hold it together? Some points of discussion:

  • Young German woman suffering from guilt wastes her time catering to 81 yr old lying Polish "survivor" who was a child in Auschwitz;
  • Some reasons given for the poor hygiene reputation at Majdanek;
  • Nick Kollerstrom's new book has an effective scientific approach, such as using the affirmation, "Mass human cyanide gas chambers have never existed in human history."
  • Ray Goodwin calls and we discuss whether the "Jews for Justice for Germans" is a good idea;
  • A comment at eliewieseltattoo.com demonstrates the disinterest in "reason and science" of most believers;
  • The Latin American Pope Francis is teaching that the greatest evil in the world today is antisemitism;
  • What the book "We Wont See Auschwitz" reveals to Carolyn about the Jewish mindset. [1hr52min]

Seventy-five years ago, on Nov. 30, 1939, the Soviet Union invaded Finland, thinking it could overwhelm a much smaller country by its size. But the Soviets were in for a surprise. What lessons does this short but brutal war have for us today? Included are:

  • Molotov-Ribbentrop pact and secret protocol;
  • How intelligence and motivation aided the Finns;
  • Losses -26,000 Finnish dead or missing vs 127,000 Soviet Russian dead or missing;
  • Can the Ukrainians hold off the Russians as well as the Finns did?

Plus, a closer look at Ukrainian nationalist leader Stepan Bandera and his arrest and incarceration at Sachsenhausen near Berlin. Included :

  • Bandera's fanatical movement veered away from sharing the same objectives as N-S Germany;
  • Bandera's death in 1959 ordered by the KGB head Alexander Shelepin and Nikita Khrushchev;
  • Ukrainian nationalists have been the most persevering of all, and most hated by the Russians. [1hr51min]

Adolf Hitler, at the left, at his Wehrwolf headquarters near Vinnytsia, Ukraine in 1942 or 43.

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.

Why Hitler and Himmler did not enlist nationalist Russians and other Slavs to help them fight the war on the Eastern Front.2hr23min.

  • Adolf Hitler's opinion of Jews and Slavs originated with his experiences in Vienna in his late teens, early twenties;
  • Hitler considered the Germanic peoples the leading race of Europe and once much of Europe was occupied by the German Reich, thought to include other Germanic nations/peoples into the Reich, but only after careful "Germanization";
  • Himmler was desirous of preserving all "Germanic blood" - Hitler advised caution;
  • Danzig Free State and "Falsifications of Polish History" give important background on the true long-term intentions of Poland against Germany;
  • Himmler speaks at some length about "the Russian" whether Czarist or Stalinist, and about General Vlasov in his speech at Posen, Oct. 4, 1943;
  • The N-S attitude is "we take care of our own first" and this is what the so-called anti-slavism is all about.

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?

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.
