The region influenced by German culture extends far beyond the boundaries of the German population area, far into the east of Europe. It comprises the territories of many non-Germans who, however, remained for centuries under the over-lordship of the Reich or belonged to that state of many peoples, Austria.

The German colonists flowed into the lands of eastern Europe in three great waves: the eastward migrations from the 11th to the 14th centuries inclusive; from the 17th and 18th  centuries; and of the 19th century. About four million Germans now live in the Germanic regions of eastern Europe as successors to these colonists [at the time of writing - approximately 1937 -cy].

Our earliest forefathers were the Norsemen of the early stone age (2500-1800 B.C.). After the ice had worked its way back onto the mountains, the Norsemen descended into the western regions along the East Sea (Baltic Sea). For many thousands of years they dwelt in southern Sweden, in Denmark, and northern Germany.

The Norsemen developed a high agrarian culture. They knew husbandry, cattle raising and seafaring. They set up permanent monuments to their dead, dwelt in high gabled houses similar to our farmers today, formed vessels and tools out of wood, knew how to tan the finest leather out of animal hides. Their artistic sense was highly developed, showing itself clearly in beautiful stone weapons, the dagger and the battle axe.

The threefold character of the German territory

Chapter Seven: The German Territory (Handbook online is here)

The German Reich in 1900.


By German Territory we mean every region of central Europe inhabited by Germans in more or less permanent settlements, which has received its cultural imprint from the German people. This territory includes the heart of Europe, and it's location has influenced tremendously the historical fate of our people.

Outnumbered German Fleet bests the British in the great Battle of Skagerrack

KNOWN TODAY AS THE Battle of Jutland, between Britain's Royal Navy Grand Fleet under Admiral Sir John Jellicoe, and the Imperial German High Seas Fleet under Vice-Admiral Reinhard Scheer, the Battle of Skagerrack was the largest naval battle and the only full-scale clash of battleships in WWI, plus the last major battle in world history fought primarily by battleships. It took place from May 31 to June 1, 1916 off the North Sea coast of Denmark's Jutland Penninsula, utilizing a total of 151 British combat ships to 99 for Germany. Both sides claimed victory even though the British lost more and larger ships (14 to 11) and more than twice as many sailors. The British press criticised the Grand Fleet's failure to force a decisive outcome. THE FATHERLAND celebrated the German showing and skill in several articles which I have reproduced below.

The Republican National Nominating Convention was underway in Chicago, but as news reporting was much slower in those days, and the outcome was not decided ahead of time, the choice was not yet known. Also note the return of my favorite writer, Edmund von Mach. -cy

America moves closer to war; Wilson unhappy with conciliatory German Note

Published by carolyn on Fri, 2019-04-05 22:34

Artist's depiction showing a German U-boat surfacing to see to the rescue of passengers and crew of a torpedoed American ship. In the Spring of 1916, Germany agreed not to sink any ship of any country without a prior warning and the safe removal of all aboard. Not all ships carried passengers, of course, and the number varied greatly.


THE FIRST THREE SELECTIONS BELOW FROM THE FATHERLAND of May 10, 1916 show the U.S. entry into the European war becoming increasingly inevitable, but slow in coming due to the Presidential election in November. The country was still not in favor; Wilson needed a good portion of the German vote, but his sympathies were entirely with the Allies. In the fourth and fifth longer articles, from the May 17th issue, we get insight about the very important German Note that came in reply to Secretary of State Lansing's note to Germany of April 19th. Fascinating. The censorship and political persecution back then was even worse than it is today. -cy

WILSON PERMITS RED CROSS TO AID ENGLAND ONLY

An Exchange of Letters bearing on the British Ideal of Cecil Rhodes

Published by carolyn on Mon, 2019-04-01 17:42

IN MY PREVIOUS POST, I INCLUDED THE STUNNING ARTICLE by F. F. Schrader published in the March 22, 1916 issue of THE FATHERLAND, relating the facts about the Secret Will of Cecil Rhodes in its relation to the United States and the pro-England, pro-war element rising in that country: The Great Conspiracy Exposed. A month later there appeared in the April 26 issue an open letter from Mr. Sinclair Kennedy, author of the book “The Pan-Angles” that was quoted in Schrader's article. A Massachusetts native and graduate of Harvard Law School, Kennedy sought to give a different interpretation of his work than that thought to be given by Schrader. The letter from Kennedy is followed by a brilliant rebuttal by Frederick Schrader. I'm posting both so you, the reader, can judge for yourself what relevance, if any, might exist between Rhodes' plan and the ongoing war. -cy

Henry Ford and Cecil Rhodes, on opposite sides, make news in The Fatherland

Published by carolyn on Fri, 2019-03-29 00:29

Left: American Henry Ford, Right: Englishman Cecil John Rhodes


IN THE FIRST SELECTION, AUTO MAGNATE HENRY FORD goes to the White House to discuss his “Peace Ship” to Europe with Wilson, and is shocked by the President's fixed, pro-war attitude. For fans of Ford, this is a must-read.

The second selection brings us writer Fredrick Schrader once again,  brilliantly laying out what he calls “the great conspiracy” to make the United States an integral part of Great Britain … in war as well as in peace, of course. This is not at all far-fetched, as it is still being proposed in our current time. I note Peter Brimelow at VDARE coined the term “the historic American nation,” by which he means English-settled; while VDare's John Derbyshire looks favorably on the concept of a brexited Britain forming an economic and political union with the U.S.A., making for a greatly enlarged Commonwealth. Both men are naturalized U.S. citizens who immigrated from England. If such a union came to pass we would see the dream of Cecil Rhodes come true! -cy

In 1916, Wilson Administration drops façade of neutrality; attacks German Americans

Published by carolyn on Sat, 2019-03-23 17:42

In order to whip up public support for war, former President Theodore Roosevelt and various industrial and military elites organized the Preparedness Movement, which among other things held parades throughout the country to raise public awareness and support. After all, every one loves a parade, and sending your sons and fathers to die on a foreign battlefield is so much easier to swallow when it is dressed up with flags and jolly marching music.


THE FOLLOWING SELECTIONS FROM THE FATHERLAND in Dec. 1915 through Feb. 1916 show the Wilson administration's commitment to neutrality was too weak to withstand the pressures and ambitions stirred up in an election year. The actions of the Wilson administration against the German “sympathizers” are the mirror image to what the radical democrats of today are doing to the current president—leveling charges and investigations in spite of no evidence ever showing up. Even the Lusitania “atrocity” is resurrected as the best pretext Wilson had, or may have, to enter the war in order to save England from financial collapse, as well as political humiliation. -cy

The Brussels documents and the heresy of Woodrow Wilson

Published by carolyn on Tue, 2019-03-19 11:42

British Foreign Minister Edward Grey (left) and French Foreign Minister Théophile Delcassé (right) schemed to "inspire hostile feelings against Germany" from 1905 to 1914.


Two extraordinary articles from The Fatherland, by two extraordinary writers, make up this post, along with a shocking report on the US postal service further caving in to English demands.

First, we discover the World War I version of the famous “Potocki Papers” of WWII. Jerzy Potocki was the Polish ambassador to Washington from 1936 to 1940, whose dispatches to his government in Warsaw were discovered by the Wehrmacht after their victory in the 1939 German-Polish war. These documents proved the involvement of Franklin Roosevelt's "neutral" government with both Poland and England to incite war in Europe.

In likewise fashion, as Frederic Schrader informs us in the important article below, diplomatic documents were discovered in Brussels by the victorious German Army which revealed the machinations carried on by Great Britain beginning already in 1905 “to inspire hostile feelings against Germany.” Sir Edward Grey, Britain's foreign minister, and his French counterpart Théophile Delcassé schemed secretly to set the stage for a realignment of European powers. -cy
