The German population area in Europe since 2500 B.C.

Chapter Eight: The German Population Area (Handbook online is here)

German language area in 1910–11; the boundaries of states are in red.


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. Continue reading at Carolyn Yeager

AfD begins campaign against the Greens on environmental policy

AfD poster for its campaign to stop the Greens asks the question  "Beautiful Green World?" with "We demand a climate of reason!", and in the circle "Stop the Greens - Protect the Environment".


By Carolyn Yeager

I'M REPORTING ON THIS IN RESPONSE TO MY READERS who attack the German Alternative für Deutschland party as “controlled opposition” because these readers believe being anti-Israel is the only important issue. They attack US President Donald Trump for the same reason. But both are doing tremendously worthy work for us in other very important areas.

The Alternative for Germany party (AfD) has begun a campaign to stop the Greens (a strongly rising leftist political party) from making advances the AfD sees as detrimental to the welfare of the German people. They write on their website:

“Today, September 20th, the Climate Cabinet of the Federal Government in Germany will meet to decide once again on additional financial burdens for the citizens of Germany under the guise of climate rescue. Continue reading at Carolyn Yeager

Marriages, births and deaths—National Socialist population policy explained

From the Handbook for Schooling the Hitler Youth

Chapter Five: Population Policy (Handbook online is here)

It is the duty of the leaders of a people to be concerned about having as large a population as possible. This is the objective of our population policy. Fostering heredity obviously works hand in hand with population policy to produce a quantitative increase in population.

The German people at the moment is no longer a growing folk. If its birth-rate remains unchanged it is threatened with slow extinction. This seems at first to be contradicted by the fact that the population of the Reich has risen from 62.6 million in 1925 to 65.3 million in 1933. But this population increase during the past decade is not real growth. It is due to a damming up of old blood. This is proved by the death figures which sank from 17.4 to 10.8 per thousand. The consequence is an exceptional growth in the higher age brackets.

The births, on the contrary, have greatly decreased. The marked growth in the higher age bracket and the decrease in the birth rate at the same time has brought about very serious changes in the age structure of our people. The social and economic consequences of this superannuation will place a burden upon coming generations. If a numerically smaller body of individuals that are capable of working have to support a larger number of people incapable of working, the social cost is greater than in the normal case.

The fostering of heredity for racial integrity

 From the Handbook for Schooling the Hitler Youth

Chapter Four: Heredity and Race Fostering (Handbook online is here)

From the teaching of genetics we learn that the individual is only a connecting link in the long chain of generations. All families and branches of a people have a common origin, a unified heritage which is continued into the future by means of the heredity stream.

The fostering of heredity aims to combat injuries which appear within the heredity stream of the folk. The most serious of the inheritable diseases are: congenital weak-mindedness, schizophrenia (mental lapses), lunacy (mental sickness), hereditary epilepsy, hereditary St. Vitus dance, hereditary blindness and deafness, and the serious hereditary malformations of the body, to which, among others, belong: congenital dislocation of the hips, clubfoot, harelip, wolf's mouth, diseases of the blood, and the like. We can also cite: abnormal number and shortness of fingers, flat and weak feet, so-called birthmarks, near and far-sightedness, squinting, cataract, as well as the factors causing: jaundice, obesity, cancer, and tuberculosis.  Continue reading at Carolyn Yeager

Effects of Heredity and Environment on Race Formation

From the Handbook for Schooling the Hitler Youth

Chapter Three: Race Formation (Handbook online is here)

Now we ask ourselves, what really constitutes a race and how does nature produce such races. We say that groups of individuals with the same heredity will continually produce their kind. We can also say that  individuals without the same heredity will produce descendants unlike the parents. What laws govern here?

The study of heredity is based on the laws which Johann Mendel (pictured above with pea plants)  established after his experiments with species of sweet peas, beans, and hawkweed, which he published in 1865 and 1869. Mendel was an Austrian German whose parents were too poor to send him to university but, because of his recognized mental gifts, were able to enter him into an Augustinian cloister from where he was sent to the University of Vienna. He studied natural science, becoming a teacher, which gave him the opportunity for carrying out his experiments in cross-breeding. Mendel is sometimes called the Father of Genetics.
