The Destruction of Dresden

Just a few days before the destruction of Dresden, Churchill sat with Stalin and Roosevelt at Yalta to talk about the future of Germany. Keegan maintains that, according to some evidence, “Stalin asked for the bombing of Dresden at Yalta, though in conversation, not on paper.”

 

Destruction of Dresden

…by Jonas E. Alexis and Michael Hoffman

 

Michael A. Hoffman is an independent scholar based in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. He is a former reporter for the New York bureau of the Associated Press. He was educated at the State University of New York at Oswego and Hobart College. He is the author of numerous books, including Judaism Discovered, Judaism’s Strange Gods, and The Great Holocaust Trial.

[ Editor’s Note: I first ran across Michael Hoffman during the early days of the American Heritage movement that was organizing to push back against political correctness with flank attacks against some of the historical constructs that fueled strategy of pitting one group of Americans against another, the upteenth version of the divide and conquer game.

Hoffman is famous from those days for his short but information packed “They were white and they were slaves”, a well researched and sourced book that revealed one of America’s darkest secrets, the history of white slavery in the early colonial days, when the term slave and servant were synonyms.

I actually broke into TV media by doing two back to back shows in Nashville, one of them on Hoffman’s book. I was later told that show had drawn more viewer response than anything ever aired on the station before. I immediately decided to get into public tv in Atlanta, and never looked back.

The book is still available on Amazon, with many reviews to check out. I highly recommend this one folksJim W. Dean ]

Jonas E. Alexis: Virtually every serious historian now knows that the bombing of Dresden in February 1945 was a war crime.[1] The late historian John Keegan called it “the most savage of all acts of the strategic bombing campaign of the Second World War.”[2]

Even the British Telegraph has said that “Dresden was a civilian town with no military significance.”[3] The Telegraph didn’t hesitate to say that:

“British (and some American) heavy bombers dropped 2,400 tons of high explosives and 1,500 tons of incendiary bombs onto the ancient cathedral city of Dresden. In just a few hours, around 25,000 to 35,000 civilians were blown up or incinerated.”[4]

“Children,” the Telegraph continued, “under the age of three had simply been vaporised.”[5] “Operation Gomorrah” did a lot worse the previous year, where bombing civilians is estimated to be 900,000 in just 18 months. Millions of others were seriously injured “six million homes” were destroyed. The bombing also “de-housed” 25 million, “creating a humanitarian crisis.”[6]

It got worse. The Commander-in-Chief of Bomber Command “said he had been intentionally bombing civilians for a year.”[7] Bombing civilians, the Powers That Be told us, “was a vital part of the war. Churchill wrote that he wanted ‘absolutely devastating, exterminating attacks by very heavy bombers from this country upon the Nazi homeland.’”[8]

The bombing of Dresden, the Telegraph again says, was “hell.” It states:

“Seventy years on, fewer people ask precisely which military objective justified the hell unleashed on Dresden. If there was no good strategic reason for it, then not even the passage of time can make it right, and the questions it poses remain as difficult as ever in a world in which civilians have continued to suffer unspeakably in the wars of their autocratic leaders.”[9]

But why or how did Dresden, one of the most powerful cities in Germany, become a hellish place? Who really were the perpetrators? Why is it that historian Frederick Taylor cannot come out and declare forthrightly that the bombing of the city was a war crime?[10]

Part of the reason is that the Allied hated the Germans, and their paid historians have been following that pattern ever since. Churchill himself was quite comfortable about starving millions of German civilians to death during World War I, largely because the Jewish oligarchs (who also hated the Germans) economically and politically owned him.

Just a few days before the attack, Churchill sat with Stalin and Roosevelt at Yalta to talk about the future of Germany. Keegan maintains that, according to some evidence, “Stalin asked for the bombing of Dresden at Yalta, though in conversation, not on paper.”[11]

In other words, the soldiers and even the generals who bombed the city were just following orders, and it seems that they knew they were being used as puppets. Marshall Harris, head of RAF Bomber Command, lamented later: “The attack on Dresden was at the time considered a military necessity by people more important than myself.”[12]

Those people were first and foremost Jewish oligarchs who had vowed to make Germany pay. Germany was an economic and industrial powerhouse before World War I, and the oligarchs obviously did not like that. After World War I, Germany was economically reduced to rubble. The average German was starving to death—until Hitler came along and changed the economic and political climate.

In short, the destruction of Dresden was carefully preplanned and meticulously orchestrated. It was not an accident at all, and this disastrous event puts the Holocaust establishment in a difficult situation: It makes it very hard to explain why Roosevelt and Churchill had to ally with a complete psychopath like Stalin.

Stalin was slaughtering millions upon millions of peasants long before Hitler came on the scene, and the West was completely silent.[13] Stalin was never put on trial for his crime, but the Allied forces wanted to drain every German blood because the Germans were all Nazis who ought to be expunged. As former Prime Minister of Israel Menachem Begin once put it,

“There is not one German who has not murdered our fathers. Every German is a Nazi. Every German is a murderer.”[14]

If every German is a murderer, then it makes no difference whether German civilians during the bombing lived or died. They were all ontologically guilty. But Churchill himself had second thought about this perverse thesis. Right after the complete disaster, he had to acknowledge:

“It seems to me that the moment has come when the question of bombing German cities simply for the sake of increasing the terror though under other pretexts should be reviewed. Otherwise we shall come into control of an utterly ruined land. The destruction of Dresden remains a serious query against the conduct of allied bombing. I feel the need for more precise concentration upon military objectives rather than the mere acts of terror and mass destruction, however impressive.”[15]

After seeing some photos of the destruction of Dresden, Churchill asked, “Are we beasts?” Well, you tell me, Mr. Churchill. Who starved millions upon millions of Germans to death during the Great War?

It was none other than Churchill himself, who was being used as a complete puppet. When he was pressed to give a rational explanation as to why he bombed Dresden, Churchill declared:

“I cannot recall anything about it. I thought the Americans did it.”[16]

This is the man the Holocaust establishment has been called one of the great liberators in history. Churchill may be a liberator to fools who posit themselves as historians, but we don’t buy this.

Michael A. Hoffman: Feb. 14, is the 72nd anniversary of the Allied Aschermittwoch (“Ash Wednesday”) slaughter-bombing holocaust against the art city of Dresden, Germany, where upwards of 100,000 civilians were incinerated, and the priceless art treasures of the historic city were forever obliterated. Even if we limit concern to aesthetics alone, the savage fire-bombing of this mostly medieval German city wiped out a fairy tale architecture of awesome beauty.

The night before, on Shrove Tuesday, Allied bombers hit trains and buses full of children returning from parties preceding Ash Wednesday.

The saturation incendiary bombing by the RAF and the US Army Air Force was one of the most barbarian assaults in the history of the West. Because the victims were the “wicked” German people however, this holocaust is barely a blip on the moral outrage screen of our patrician “Good War” enthusiasts.

Winston Churchill, the architect of the auto-da-fe, who later disavowed his role with the chicanery that was typical of this scoundrel, is hailed on “conservative Christian” college campuses both Catholic and Protestant as the epitome of a “great statesman of western civilization.”

Such a view is a grave failure of vision. Dresden is in Saxony and the English are a Saxon and Norman people (or at least they were in 1945). The fratricide in Dresden was an act of insanity on the part of the British and American representatives of western syphilization. As long as Churchill is presented as a paradigm of any kind of goodness, the bipolar mentality inculcated by that fraud will continue to shackle our ability to wrangle a future for our children.

The spot where the corpses of German civilians in the photo above were piled is today marked by an engraved stone put up by the post-war German government. It is inscribed, “Germany brought war to the world and here it was brought back to Germany.”

Do the fools who scribbled that epitaph understand the implications of their alibi for terrorism? It was America that “brought war” to Iraq. Therefore, is it permissible for Iraqis to commit terrorism against American civilians?  It was the Judaic Bolsheviks who had been (largely) raised in Talmudic homes who “brought war” to the Christians of Russia. Therefore, was it permissible for Hitler to terrorize Judaic civilians? There is no excuse for targeting civilians, whether by ISIS in the Middle East or the British and Americans in the heart of ancient Saxony.

This writer has had friendships with a few combat veterans of the Second World War Germany army. One of these was the Roman Catholic German soldier Hans von der Heide. In 1985 he related to me (on videotape) that he and his brother soldiers were held captive in an American POW camp after the war and were shown atrocity photos of “German crimes.”

One of the photos was said to be of “Jewish victims of Auschwitz.” Mr. Von der Heide told me that one of the German soldiers present knew Saxony well and shouted to the American in charge of their “re-education” session, “Those are the dead of Dresden, not Auschwitz!”

    I think the debate over the number of deaths was primarily due to the city being packed with refugees fleeing the advancing Soviets. The parks were full of people camping and records of people in movement were not only spotty, but toasted. Hospitals were full, etc. Attacks on population centers to cause mass casualties was an official war aim. I read a bomber command report years ago explaining this to the air wing people, with the goal of their “mental health” is slaughtering so many non-combatants. The goal of the report was to absolve them of any personal guilt. The bottom line for the justification was that the huge casualties would undermine support for the Nazi regime, and that would help end the war sooner and save Allied lives…nice and simple. Left out of the analysis was that the unconditional surrender was the big killer as the German command would have ended the War after D-day with a reasonable peace, and the Soviets would never have gotten into Europe. Stalin was sweating his Western Allies bailing out, as that was the smart play, and what he would have done. Most of the Jewish camp losses came during this period, when at the end all food and medicine deliveries ended, causing the big body piles, and of course the Allies put that all off on the Germans when Allied planes was strafing everything that moved at the end.

      Ed… one of the most influential factors that resulted in allied air superiority was the wind tunnel testing at a 1:1 scale. It allowed them to eliminate scale factor errors and delays associated with testing prototypes. It would be interesting to speculate on the advances in German air innovations if they had developed the same testing technology.

    There seems to be major disagreement as to the number of deaths inflicted by the murderous incendiary bombing of Dresden. The Allies have predictably reduced the number to 35,000 or even lower. David Irving in his “Destruction of Dresden” cites a figure of 135,000.
    Referring to Irving’s figure of 135,000, British historian F.J.P. Veale had this to say:
    “Having regard to the fact that there were at the time over a million people crowded into the city and to the complete lack of air raid shelters, this would seem an absurdly conservative estimate. Generalmajor Hans Rumpf mentions a figure of 250,000, but says that “we do not know and never shall know how many perished.” – F.J.P. Veale, Advance to Barbarism.
    The West German government recorded: “The bombing of Dresden on February 13, 1945, when the city was packed with refugees, cost the lives of 250,000 men, women and children.” – Germany Reports, Official publication of West German Gov’t., 1953
    Whatever the number of deaths, one thing is beyond dispute. The nature and scale of the attacks leave no doubt whatsoever that their intent was to utterly destroy a defenseless City and kill as many of the civilian populace as possible by burning them alive.

    I don’t agree. Again and again “someone heard, someone watched, someone seemed that someone said”. It reminds me USA Media and CIA modern methods of proof – “We watched in Youtube”.
    I may declare right now THAT Churchill suggested to bomb Dresden! Why not him? He had a plan to attack USSR after WW2 with A-bombs (thanks God he had none of them and USA had little). What would he look like if he could do it? Then there would be no difference between him and Stalin. Why don’t you blame in all Media the names of those [email protected] who gave order to nuke Hiroshima and Nagasaki? They are better than Stalin? I doubt. Look, Dresden devastating was a pure crime! The same crimes as Hitler’s army of euro bums who killed Soviet people, burned cities and villages. It is a cliche – Stalin is most cruel murderer in the world! There were MANY western persons who killed a lot of people (in colonies and etc.) But it is so convenient to blame a dead Person, especially when the Soviet Party Bosses helped to blackmail his name. Look at social stats in Russia and see how many people approve Stalin’s epoch. This is not my personal propaganda, but to make this strong person a scarecrow – not wise.
    P.s. Now take your guns and come to visit me 🙂

      Thank you, Edward, for your info. Envy your persistence and ability to raise facts.
      Surprise! – Ed – i don’t drink vodka at my job (as far as i’m a brigadier of manual welding team at Nordstream-2). I like Schnaps (German kind of vodka of lower degrees), i like Armenian and French cognac and i like white wines and Greek Metaxa. Shashlyk is the traditional Caucasus meat roasted food like barbecue, but better. We prefer natural food. GMO is smth like UFO for us. If you are to drink 100% Russian vodka – the best one is not Smirnoff brand, but Ossets (Caucasus) vodka. It has no 40 classic degrees by Mendeleev, but smth like 25-30. Also read about Abkhasian Chacha – grape vodka, but it has around 60-70 degrees. And never forget the rule NO1 – do never drink like soviets – your organism will not carry it out 🙂
      But we have a proverb: if you want to see a person as he is – drink alcohol with him.
      No advertisement. No propaganda. Alcohol leads to catastrophe and unwanted adventures 🙂

    And Meanwhile we have the “much ado about nothing” hot air from Trumpty Dumpty on Jan. 21, 2017 on moving the “Churchill Bust” in the Whitehouse. This turns out to be a complicated story because there were two busts of him. Trump displays his ignorance of history by worshiping this unindicted war criminal named Winston Chuchill. It looks like the late pofessor Laurence J. Peter was correct again with his “Peter Principle” where everyone rises to their level of incompetence; witness Trumpy Dumpty who either made a fool of himself, although most people are too ignorant themselves to see it, or he deliberately sought to fool a gullible public on the Chuchill Bust Hoax.

    The German movie “Dresden”(also subtitled in English) is a good place to start getting a feeling and understanding the magnitude of this war crime.

    • Khalid Talaat  February 17, 2017 at 8:10 am

      Let us not forget the bombing of London was unnecessary and detrimental to the German air strayegy.It gave Brittain time to replenish its Spitfires. Hitler was happy to slaughter a few civilians as a lesson and Churchill was equally happy to supply them.

    Jonas,

    At the top of your other article, “Lies about World War II and the lying liars who told them”, is a drawing of “The three amigos of the twentieth century”. This drawing is still perpetuating the cult of Stalin. It makes Stalin a larger-than-life character. He wasn’t. Let’s take their heights in order:

    FDR: 6′-2″ (hard to tell, since he was stuck in a wheelchair due to polio)
    Churchill: 5′-6″
    Stalin: 5′-4″

    All the drawings and photos are made to look like Stalin was a giant of a man. History and facts prove otherwise.

    Where was the archive of this so called “House of Windsor”, the House of Sachsen-Coburg-Gotha located ?

    • Trakkath  February 16, 2017 at 3:18 pm

      But there may be some historians that know where this archive was so guess why they fire bombed Dresden…

  8. Alex B  February 16, 2017 at 11:33 am

    A superficial analysis shows that the entire event is “aligned” on the occult code “2 8 / 8 2”. That includes, beyond any doubts: the date (3 points), and the major points in Mr. Churchill’s name (=208/8*2), in “Ash Wednesday”(=128/12=8*2*8/(2+8+2)) or “Allied Aschermittwoch”(=280/20), and in two possible descriptions: “A city is incinerated by barbarian bombing” = 343/36=7*7*7/(2*8+20), or, more specifically: “An art city is incinerated by barbarian bombing” = 396/40=66*6/(200-8*2). There may be even more precise ones, but it takes time to find them, and they won’t change anything in the authorship of this “masterpiece”, created by the same kind of sick hands and heads that have been specializing in this sort of “art” for centuries.

    A tragedy of immense proportions. Makes you wonder how “human ” our so called leaders are…
