Part 2 of "The Continuing False Statements of Jim Condit, Jr."

Condit references "Hennecke Kardel" and Dietrich Bronder's books as his proof that Adolf Hitler and his top associates were all Jews. No matter how many people tell Condit he is full of it, he won't listen and continues to insist on "his sources." He says that I, Carolyn Yeager, "NEVER ONCE gave a reason why a source of his was illegitimate." Here, I offer more correct information on 'Who is Jewish' and I'd like to see Condit prove any of it wrong.

From the Introduction to Adolf Hitler—The Founder of Israel by "Hennecke Kardel":

The reader might look unsuccessfully for a book which long ago disappeared from the market. It was an extraordinary and instructive investigation conducted by a German Jew, [there are no German Jews, only Jews who live in Germany] Dietrich Bronder, a high school teacher. Its title is: Before Hitler Came. It was printed in 1964 and is about who was who in the Hitler's apparatus: "Of Jewish descent, or being related to Jewish families were: the Leader and Reichschancelor Adolf Hitler; his representatives the Reichsminister Rudolf Hess; the Reichsmarshall Hermann Goering; the Reichsleader of the NSDAP Gregor Stressed (sic - should be Strasser), Dr. Josef Goebbels, Alfred Rosenberg, Hans Frank, Heinrich Himmler; the Reichsminister von Ribbentrop (who pledged close friendship with the famous Zionist Chaim Weizmann, the first head of the State of Israel who died in 1952); von Keudell; field commanders Globocnik (the Jewish destructor); Jordan and Wilhelm Hube (sic); the great SS-Leaders Reinhard Heydrich, Erich von dem Bach-Zelewski and von Keudell II, who also were active in the destruction of Jews. Next came Hitler's bankers and before 1933 supporters: Ritter von Stauss (Vice-president of the NS-Parliament); von Stein; the General Field Marshall and Secretary of State Milch; the Under-Secretary of State Gauss; the physicist and old Vice-president of the NS-Parliament Party members Philipp von Lenhard and Abraham Esau; the very old party-member Hanffstaengel (sic) NSDAP's newspaper Chief of Foreign Department (later on an advisor to President D.E. (sic) Roosevelt) as well as professor Haushofer."

Is any of this true? My own research revealed the following:

Was Adolf Hitler Jewish? NO. Please see my article "The Fake Legends of Adolf Hitler's Jewish Grandfather."

Was Rudolf Hess Jewish? NO. Hess was born in Alexandria, Egypt, the eldest of four children, to Fritz H. Hess, a prosperous German Lutheran importer/exporter from Bavaria, and Clara (née Münch). His mother was of Greek descent, of the Georgiadis family of Alexandria. The family lived in luxury on the Egyptian coast, near Alexandria, and visited Germany often during the summers, allowing the Hess children to learn the German language and to absorb German culture. The family moved back to Germany in 1908, where Rudolf was subsequently enrolled in boarding school in Bad Godesberg.

Was Hermann Göring Jewish? NO. Hermann Göring was born at Rosenheim, Bavaria, on January 12, 1893 (one of five siblings). His father was a German colonial official; his mother, a simple peasant girl. His godfather, Dr. von Epenstein [born Hermann Epenstein], was a half-Jew, a Christian convert, whose Castle Veldenstein was the romantic setting for Göring's boyhood. Educated at home, at boy's schools, and at officer-cadet school, Göring entered the military academy at Gross Lichterfelde, outside Berlin, in 1910. Herman Göring had a younger brother,  Albert, who rumor had it was sired by von Epenstein, making Albert 1/4 Jewish. But even if the rumor, which was pure speculation, were true, it doesn’t make Göring Jewish.  More on Göring:

His father was the first Governor-General of the German protectorate of South West Africa (modern-day Namibia) as well as being a former cavalry officer and member of the German consular service. He had distinguished ancestors. His mother (of all five children) was from a peasant family and his father’s second wife. Göring was named after Arminius, who defeated the Roman legions at Teutoburg Forest. Hermann Epenstein did not become Göring's godfather until Albert was born in 1895. He was a "Christian of Jewish descent."  Epenstein’s father was an army surgeon in Berlin; son Hermann after WWI became a wealthy physician and businessman. In other words, he became rich and bought a minor title, becoming Hermann, Ritter von Epenstein. He purchased two old castles in Baviaria and Salzburg and renovated them. Later, the relationship cooled and the Göring family no longer lived in the castle. Epenstein married a singer half his age and bequeathed his estate to her.

Was Gregor Strasser Jewish? NO. Not a shred of evidence.  Gregor Strasser and his younger brother Otto  were born into the family of a Catholic judicial officer who lived in the Upper Bavarian market town of Geisenfeld. No mention of any jewish ancestry, no rumors.

Was Joseph Goebbels Jewish? NO.   Goebbels was born in Rheydt, an industrial town south of Mönchengladbach on the edge of the Ruhr district in a Catholic family. His father was a factory clerk, his mother originally a farmhand. Goebbels had four siblings: Hans (1893–1947), Konrad (1895–1949), Elisabeth (1901–1915) and Maria (born 1910,). He was educated at a Christian Gymnasium, where he completed his  university entrance examination in 1916. He had a deformed right leg, the result of    childhood osteomyelitis and a failed operation to correct it. Because of this, he was rejected for military service in World War I, which he bitterly resented. He did act as an "office soldier" from June to October 1917 in Rheydt's "Patriotic Help Unit."

Goebbels attended the boarding school of German Franciscan brothers in Bleijerheide, Kerkrade in the Netherlands. Gradually losing his Catholic faith, he studied literature and philosophy at the universities of Bonn, Würzburg, Freiburg and Heidelberg, where he wrote his doctoral thesis on the 18th century romantic novelist Wilhelm von Schütz. His two most influential teachers, Friedrich Gundolf and his doctoral supervisor at Heidelberg, Max Freiherr von Waldberg, were Jews. Goebbels intelligence and political astuteness were generally acknowledged even by his enemies.

 The Kardel book says: Dr. Joseph Goebbels was born to Spanish-Dutch Jews and in school was called "Rabbi". His Jewish mother-in-law Friedlander lived in his household until the end of the war.

Wikipedia says: Magda Goebbels was born in 1901 in Berlin, Germany to 22-year-old Auguste Behrend, and was the acknowledged daughter of engineer Oskar Rietschel. They married later that year. Magda's mother Auguste later married a Jewish manufacturer named Richard Friedländer and moved with him to Brussels in 1908. She divorced him in 1914, but retained the name of Friedländer. The stepfather had given his name to Magda, which she also continued to use for a time. Magda's mother was not Jewish.

Was Alfred Rosenberg Jewish? NO. Rosenberg was born in 1893 in Tallinn in Estonia (then part of the Russian Empire) to a family of Baltic Germans : his father, Waldemar Wilhelm Rosenberg was a wealthy merchant from Latvia, his mother, Elfriede, from Estonia. The young Rosenberg studied architecture in Riga and engineering at Moscow's Highest Technical School, completing his PhD studies in 1917. During the Russian Revolution of 1917 Rosenberg supported the counter-revolutionaries, The White Army; following their failure he emigrated to Germany in 1918 along with Max Scheubner-Richter who served as something of a mentor to Rosenberg and to his ideology. He arrived in Munich and contributed to Dietrich Eckert's publication, the Völkischer Beobachter (People's Observer). His first wife was Hilda Leesmann, an ethnic Estonian; his second wife was Hedwig Kramer, with whom he had two children. Neither were Jewish.

Was Hans Frank Jewish? NO. Frank was born in Karlsruhe  in 1900, and his parents were Karl Frank, a lawyer, and his wife Magdalena (née Buchmaier). He had an elder brother, Karl Jr., and a younger sister, Elisabeth. During the Nuremberg military tribunal he renewed the Roman Catholic faith of his childhood and claimed to have a series of religious experiences. Frank is a German name, even though Jews have taken it up. There is a Jewish Hans J. Frank who immigrated to the U.S. from Germany in 1933. He was born in Magdeburg. He helped Jews regain their “lost” property. No relation.

Was Heinrich Himmler Jewish? NO. Heinrich Himmler was born in Munich to a Roman Catholic Bavarian middle-class family. His father was Joseph Gebhard Himmler, a secondary-school teacher and principal of the prestigious Wittelsbacher Gymnasiam. His mother was Anna Maria Himmler (maiden name Heyder), a devout Roman Catholic. He had an older brother, Gebhard Ludwig Himmler, and a younger brother, Ernst Hermann Himmler. Heinrich was named after his godfather, Prince Heinrich of Bavaria of the royal family of Bavaria, who was tutored by Gebhard Himmler. In 1910, Himmler attended Gymnasium in Landshut, where he studied classic literature.

Was Joachim von Ribbentrop Jewish? NO. Joachim von Ribbentrop was born in Wesel, Rhenis in Prussia, the son of Richard Ulrich Friedrich Joachim Ribbentrop, a career army officer, and his wife Johanne Sophie Hertwig. Ribbentrop was educated irregularly at private schools in Germany and Switzerland. From 1904 to 1908, Ribbentrop took courses in French in a school at Metz, the most powerful fortress of the German Empire.

Was Hans von Keudell Jewish? NO. He was a WW1 flying ace; no intimation anywhere that he was jewish.

Was Odilo Globocnik Jewish? NO. Odilo Globocnik was born in 1904 into a family of Slovene descent in the Imperial Free City of Trieste, in the Austro-Hungarian Empire (now in Italy). He was the second child of Franz Globocnik who served as a Habsburg cavalry lieutenant in the Austro-Hungarian army. In 1914, the family left Trieste for Cseklész where Franz Globocnik was recalled to active duty with the outbreak of World War I. Odilo and his family moved to Klagenfurt. He had to leave school in order to help support the family financially. Globocnik first appeared in politics in 1922, when he became a prominent member of the pre-Nazi Carinthian paramilitary organizations and was seen wearing a swastika. At this time he became engaged to Grete Michner, whose father, Emil Michner, secured Globocnik a job as a technician and construction supervisor at a hydropower plant.

Was Wilhelm Hube (sic) Jewish? NO. Wilhelm Kube was born in Glogau, Prussian Silesia, and studied history, economics and theology. He was active in the Völkisch movement as a student, and was an early member of the National Socialist Party. In 1924 he was one of the first group of Nazi members elected to the Weimar Republic Reichstag. In 1928 he was appointed Gauleiter of Brandenburg and speaker of the tiny Nazi party faction (6 seats) in the Prussian Landtag. Kube remained an active Christian despite being a zealous National Socialist, and in 1932 he organised the list of candidates of the Faith Movement of the German Christians for the ordinary election of presbyters and synodals within the Evangelical Church of the old-Prussian Union. In 1936 it was claimed in an anonymous letter that Party Judge Walter Buch, the father-in-law  of Martin Bormann, was married to a half-Jew. In the course of a Gestapo investigation it came to light that the letter had been written by Kube, whom Buch had investigated owing to concerns over his private life and his leadership style in the Gau. Buch saw to it that Kube was removed from all his posts. Only on Hitler's orders was he allowed to remain a Gauleiter, albeit without his own Gau.

Was Reinhard Heydrich Jewish? NO. He was born into a well-to-do Catholic family. Music was a part of Heydrich's everyday life; his father was an opera singer as well as the founder of the Halle Conservatory of Music. Heydrich developed a passion for the violin, which he carried into his adult life, and he impressed listeners with his musical talent. His father was a German nationalist who instilled patriotic ideas in the minds of his three children. Wilhelm Canaris, who became good friends with Heydrich and his wife, said he had obtained photocopies proving Heydrich's Jewish ancestry, but these photocopies have never surfaced.    In 1932, a number of Heydrich's enemies had discovered the old rumours of his possible Jewish ancestry and began to spread them around. Henry Makow, a Jew himself, writes that Heydrich was part Jewish but without the slightest proof, as usual. 

Was (General) Erich von dem Bach-Zelewski Jewish? NO. He was born to Otto Jan Józefat von Zelewski, a Roman Catholic, and his Lutheran wife Elżbieta Ewelina Szymańska (written in German - Schimansky). Born Erich Julius Eberhard von Zelewski, he legally added "von dem Bach" to the family name late in the 1933. He went on to have "Zelewski" officially removed from his name in November 1941 because of its Polish sound.

He was descended from Michał Żelewski (1700-1785), who was a Polish nobleman in Pomerania. Roman Catholic Church sources claim that in 1855 in Strzepcz Otton August von Zelewski married Antonia Fryderyka von Żelewska (apparently from another Zelewski family). One of their sons married Elżbieta Ewelina Szymańska and they had three daughters and three sons, one of whom was Erich Julius Eberhard. In November 1914, Erich von Zelewski volunteered for the Prussian army, becoming one of the youngest recruits and serving until the end of World War I. He was wounded twice and won the Iron Cross. Although he had high rank in WWII, he did not have much military success. US military police arrested him on 1 August 1945. In exchange for his testimony against his former superiors at the Nuremberg Trials, von dem Bach-Zelewski never faced trial for any war crimes. Similarly, he never faced extradition to Poland or to the USSR. He left prison in 1949.

Was Ritter von Stauss Jewish? No such person. Kardel really struck out here.

Was Ernst Hanfstaengl Jewish? NO. Nicknamed "Putzi", he was born in Munich, Germany, the son of a wealthy German art publisher, Edgar Hanfstaengl, and an American mother. He spent most of his early years in Germany and later moved to the United States. His mother was Katharine Wilhelmina Heine, daughter of William Heine, a cousin of American Civil War Union Army general John Sedgwick. His godfather was Duke Ernst II of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha. He had an elder sister, Erna, two elder brothers Edgar and Egon, and a younger brother Erwine. On February 11, 1920, Hanfstaengl married Helene Elise Adelheid Niemeyer of Long Island. Their only son, Egon Ludwig, eventually enlisted in the US Army Air Corps. A daughter, Herta, died at the age of five.

Was Erhard Milch (Luftwaffe General) Jewish? YES! Milch was born in Wilhelmshaven, the son of Anton Milch, a Jewish pharmacist in the Kaiserliche Marine, and a Christian mother, Clara Milch, née Rosenau. In 1935, Milch's ethnicity came into question. This prompted an investigation by the Gestapo that Göring squelched by producing an affidavit signed by Milch's mother stating that Anton was not really the father of Erhard and his six siblings, and naming their true father as Karl Brauer, her deceased uncle. Milch, a loyal German in my opinion, was issued a German Blood Certificate by Adolf Hitler.

Was Philipp von Lenhard Jewish? NO. Philipp Eduard Anton von Lenard was a Hungarian-German physicist, the son of a wine merchant. Lenard's parents were German, and his family had originally come from Tyrol in the 17th century. He was the winner of the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1905 for his research on cathode rays and the discovery of many of their properties. He was also an active proponent of National Socialist ideology. During the NS regime, he was an outspoken proponent of the idea that Germany should rely on "Deutsche Physik" and ignore what he considered the fallacious and deliberately misleading ideas of "Jewish physics," by which he meant chiefly the theories of Albert Einstein, including "the Jewish fraud" of relativity. An advisor to Adolf Hitler, Lenard became Chief of Aryan physics under the Nazis.

  In addition, Adolf Eichmann, Julius Streicher, Heinrich Hoffmann and Eva Braun were also NOT JEWISH.
