Raping German Women and Children as a Form of Revenge After WWII (Part I)


“There is not one German who has not murdered our fathers. Every German is a Nazi. Every German is a murderer.” Menachem Begin, former Prime Minister of Israel[1]

We have seen in previous articles how the word “Holocaust” itself has progressively become a potent weapon in the ideological war.

But the Holocaust establishment has worked tirelessly over the past few years to ensure that this weapon is spread across the world, including Asian countries.

Last January, the New York Times had an article entitled, “Raising Asian Awareness of the Holocaust.”[2]

Throughout the entire article, nothing was said about Stalin’s extermination programs, which eventually were responsible for the death of millions upon millions of Russian peasants.[3]

Nothing was said about Mao’s slaughter houses and execution programs, which killed at least 45 million people;[4] nothing was even remotely mentioned about China’s eugenic program, which literally obliterated millions of innocent lives,[5] and about Vietnam’s communist regime, which brutally massacred millions of people.[6]

In the twentieth century alone, many Asian countries were infected by the communist virus, which ended up killing at least fifty million people just in Asia alone.

What the New York Times ended up saying indirectly was that Asia does not have enough “Holocaust” problem; Asia, which is where this writer currently resides, needs to consider the only Holocaust in recent memory: Nazi Germany. In short, the new doctrine is pretty straightforward: Thou shalt have no other gods before the Jewish “Holocaust”!

If the New York Times wanted Asians to have a good history lesson, they certainly should have mentioned Stalin and others as well. That certainly betrays their prejudice.

Moving on to the Middle East, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has recently called the “Holocaust” “the most heinous crime” in modern history. It seemed that he was trying to appease the Israelis, who didn’t even acknowledge the apology.  In response, Benjamin Netanyahu declared,

“Instead of issuing statements designed to placate global public opinion, (Abbas) needs to choose between the alliance with Hamas, a terrorist organization that calls for the destruction of Israel and denies the Holocaust, and a true peace with Israel.”

President Abbas perhaps didn’t know what happened to the Germans after World War II, our topic in this article.

Then we have Steven Spielberg recently saying that “Mass graves don’t have to open up before we act…It took me years of directing sharks, aliens, and dinosaurs before I felt ready to tackle the Holocaust.”[7]

After the release of Schindler’s List, Spielberg founded the Shoah Foundation Institute at the University of Southern California. If you think Spielberg is going to help found a similar institute for the innocent Russians, Chinese, and Germans who died after the war, think again.

 After World War II, 12 to 14 million German people—including women and children under the age of sixteen—were brutally driven from their homes.[8] Some historians place the figure as high as fifteen million.[9]

During the expulsion, thousands lost their lives from starvation, disease, and ill-treatment. Some died in wagons without food, water, or heating during long trips; others collapsed by the roadside. The death estimate is between 500,000 and 1.5 million.[10] Other historians estimate that the figure amounts to 2 million.[11]

Moreover, thousands upon thousands of children were separated from their families.[12] Historian R. M. Douglas notes that many of these issues are not discussed among popular historians and even ignored in some scholarly circles.

“Today, outside Germany, they are almost completely unknown. In most English language histories of the period they are at best a footnote, and usually not even that.

“The most recent (2009) edition of Mary Fulbrook’s excellent History of Germany 1918-2008 disposes of the episode in a single uninformative paragraph…The Cambridge Illustrated History of Germany is typical in not according the expulsions even a single mention.”[13]

Historian Pertti Ahonen likewise declares that “The political dimensions of the expellee problem in the Federal Republic form a particular of neglect” and the accurate history of the expellees remains

“poorly investigated, especially on the federal level, despite the obvious importance of the newcomers’ political integration for the Federal Republic’s stability.”[14]

orderlySome historians dismiss these accounts as “wild expulsions,” while others defend the position that the Allies were justified in brutally turning out the Germans.[15] Some historians, such as Keith Lowe, have even gone on record saying that the brutality and vengeance against German civilians “tended to be a small-scale affair.”[16]

This was not the case. While Lowe concedes the fact that German women were brutally raped and other shameful acts were committed on women in places like France, Italy, Denmark, Holland,[17] he prefaces these facts by saying that they were done on a minor scale, which seems to be contradictory. He writes,

“The sexual nature of the rituals themselves is also significant. In Denmark the women were frequently stripped naked during their head-shaving ceremonies, and their breasts and backsides painted with Nazi symbols.

“In many areas of France women also had their bare bottoms spanked, and their breasts daubed with swastikas.”[18]

But the “sexual nature” cannot be “significant” if it was done on a minor scale or that it was limited to a small area. Then Lowe knocks himself out by saying

“it is difficult to judge, at a distance of some seventy years, whether these women deserved to be punished in this way, in an alternative way, or not at all.”

He cites British Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden saying that “those who had not been through the ‘horrors of occupation’ had no right to pronounce upon what a country does.’”[19] Lowe’s analysis here is so morally untenable as to hardly deserve a rebuttal—on what grounds, then, can he condemn Nazi Germany?

There is much to be learned from his book Savage Continent. He argues quite rightly that after the war German children faced enormous discrimination in the nation in which they were born. For example, the Norwegian daily newspaper, Lufotposten, wrote of the German children who were growing up in the country:

“All these German children are bound to grow up and develop into an extensive bastard minority in the Norwegian people. By their descent they are doomed in advance to take a combative stance.

“They have no nation, they have no father, they just have hate, and this is their only heritage. They are unable to become Norwegians. Their fathers were Germans, their mothers were Germans in thought and action. To allow them to stay in this country is tantamount to legalizing the raising of a fifth column.”[20]

The war brought unwanted baggage to the German civilians, and ethnic German children who grew up in places like Norway faced tremendous pressure, including rejection by their own family.[21] This has had a detrimental effects on generational children who, according to a 2001 study,

“suffer higher death rates, higher divorce rates and worse health than the rest of Norway’s population…They are also significantly more likely to commit suicide than their peers.”[22]

Norman Davies states,

“For every European who was involved in the fighting of the Second War, there were at least ten civilians who were not directly involved but who nonetheless were forced to suffer the painful consequences of international conflict.”[23]

Douglas argues that the expulsions, along with rape on a massive scale, were meticulously “carried out by troops, police, and militia, acting under orders and more often than not executing policies laid down at the highest levels.”[24]

For example, when a Czechoslovak soldier carelessly discharged his weapon, wounding himself, Germany civilians were to blame and at least nine of them were executed.[25]

Similarly, twenty local Germans were shot because “an SNB officer accidentally blew himself up in Bruntal while handling a grenade.”[26] Even before the war was over, ordinary Germans were destined to pay the price of World War II. In January 1945, the Soviets torpedoed German cruiser Wilhelm Gustloff, which was carrying about 9,000 refugees, “4000 of whom were children.”[27]

savage-continentAfter the war, the Allies re-established concentration camps for national and ethnic Germans.

“Many of the Sudeten German Social Democrats who were put in concentration camps by the Germans for being anti-Nazi when liberation came were transferred to Czech labor camps merely because they were of German origin.”[28]

For example, “Hrnecek personally took revenge on his former captain in the Ceske Budejo-vice police force by pole-hanging the man for four to five hours while having him ‘beaten with cow-hide horsewhips’ until he fainted, and resuscitating him by pouring water over him.”[29]

Similar torture in those camps happened almost every night, which resulted in an increase of suicides among the prisoners.[30]

“Many ex-Nazi concentration camps like Majdanek or Theresienstadt—and even the camp at Auschwitz—never went out of business, but were retained in operation as detention facilities for ethnic Germans for years after the war.”[31]


the former Konzentrationslager of Boleslawiec (Bunzlau), a subcamp of Gross-Rosen in Poland, held approximately twelve hundred boys aged between twelve and fifteen, who were used as forced labor on road-building projects.

“Of the ninety-five inmates of the children’s camp at Ceske Kridlovice in Czechoslovakia during the month of July 1947, a third were under six years of age.”[32]

Similar reports have surfaced—in other concentration camps such as Mirosov, many prisoners were “younger than fourteen years of age; forty-five of them were below the age of six.”[33]

Those camps represented “a system of organized and ferocious maltreatment of internees, with the stated intention of completing in five months what the Nazis had failed to accomplish at the camp in five years.”[34]

By June 1945, ordinary Germans were forced out of their homes and made to walk hundreds of miles with no food and water. One survivor wrote,

“Many weak and sick people, old folks and children had to be left on the road dead. It was a lamentable procession of utmost misery…Heaven only knows how often we were plundered by Poles or Russians and how many times the women were assaulted again and again.”[35]

Sexual torture happened on a large scale, so large in fact that Douglas called it “ritualized sexual humiliation and punishment suffered by female inmates.”[36] One particular woman, Johanna Janisch, was raped “some twenty times by Red Army soldiers,” and contracted gonorrhea as a result.[37]

Between May and August 1945, some places “functioned as a sexual supermarket,” whose detainees, ethnic Germans, were brutally raped.[38] At Potulice, one of the largest Polish camps for Germans,

“the sexual humiliation of female prisoners had become an institutional practice by the end of 1945.”[39]

In Czechoslovakia, torture by the Revolutionary Guards included “exposing women’s body parts and burning them with lighted cigarettes.”[40] The male detainees sometimes “were compelled to perform sexual acts upon each other.”[41] (Sounds like a precursor to Abu Ghraib.)

Reports given by the Belgrade embassy in 1946 concurred.[42] In contrast,

“Women survivors of German concentration camps have recalled that, notwithstanding the unrestrained brutality that pervaded most other aspects of daily life, rape or other forms of sexual maltreatment at the hands of their guards was an extremely rare occurrence, and severely punished by the authorities if detected.”[43]

Adrian Kanaar, a British military doctor, actually witnessed the brutal torture which the Allied forces inflicted on ordinary Germans. He later wrote that he was willing to face court martial for raising public awareness with regard to the Germans and declared that the Allied forces had established “a tyranny…which is as bad as the Nazis.”[44]

Ignacy Cedrowski, the camp physician at Potulice between 1945 and 1948, lost his family during the Nazi era and was a survivor of Auschwitz. He was appalled at how the Allied forces were treating the Germans.[45]

John Colville, a former private secretary of Winston Churchill, noted the same thing, adding that “concentration camps and all they stand for did not come to an end with the defeat of Germany.”[46]

Yet even after all these events, the vast majority of the ordinary Germans remained servile.[47] Catholic priest Josef Neubauer, who was in one of those camps until November 1945, wrote:

“On June 27, 1945, I was suddenly ordered to the guard-room. There I was made to strip completely naked and was beaten with sticks and fists. As a result, one of my ribs was broken and my teeth were knocked out.

“I then received at the hand of my two tormentors another 50 strokes with a length of steel cable, the thickness of my thumb, on my stomach, back, chest and buttocks. I was made to count the blows myself. At the end of this beating, my entire body was bleeding.

“I told my tormentors that I forgave them and that God should not count it as a sin against them. They were baffled by this statement of mine and from that moment onward left me in peace.”[48]

Western responses to those atrocities have been appalling. The life of Johannes Kostka, a German prisoner of war in a British camp in Egypt, is a case in point.

By the end of 1947, Kostka wrote a letter to the U.S. Office of Military Government in Frankfurt about his wife Gertrud, a detainee in the Southwestern Polish town of Bielsko-Biala. Kostka was separated from his wife for four years and finally got a letter from her, which he passed on to the U.S. agencies.

His wife was pregnant as a result of rape and had contemplated suicide. The United States passed the letter to the British embassy in Warsaw, but in the end both countries decided to drop the issue. The British embassy finally declared that “we propose that [the case] should be dropped.”[49]

Moreover, in most of the camps, the Red Cross and other humanitarian organizations were prevented from providing assistance. There was no organization working on the behalf of the detainees, despite the fact that their mistreatment was widely known (though only a few Americans knew about it).[50]

(This is similar to what we are seeing with respect to Israeli mistreatment of Palestinian children.[51]) When the war was over, the vast majority of polls in Britain, France, and the United States made no distinction between “ordinary Germans” and “Nazis.” Not only that,

“some carried [the] perception…that it was appropriate even that children pay the price for Nazi misdeeds.

“When the London-based National Peace Council issued a call in September 1945 for Britons to accept reduced food rations so that expellee women and children might be fed, a correspondent to the Daily Herald condemned those among his countrymen who still harbored ‘tender feelings towards this race of murderous white savages.’”[52]

Some Allied officers such as Goronwy Rees ascribed to similar views.[53] A few voices, such as Jewish publisher Victor Gollancz, made it clear that if ordinary Germans were going to be held accountable for what happened in Nazi Germany, then the United States and Britain must collectively be responsible for what was being done to the German civilians. Other voices within the Christian community, most particularly the Church of England, protested against the massive expulsions of the Germans.[54]

In August 1945, when the British arrived on German shores,

“A convoy of trucks pulled into the village, and the Tommies took over from an easygoing US infantry division. Within hours, the British had ordered everybody in the centre of the village to pack their belongings and leave.

“Bad Nenndorf was heaving with refugees from the bomb-ravaged ruins of Hanover, 18 miles to the east: hundreds of people were given 90 minutes to pack some food and valuables, and get out.

“‘We thought everyone would be allowed back in a few days,’ recalls Walter Münstermann, now a retired newspaperman, but then a 14-year-old.

“‘Then the soldiers started putting barbed wire fences around the centre of the village, and slowly we began to realize that this was going to be no ordinary camp.’”[55]

Bad Nenndorf, the place where the prisoners were kept and tortured, “became known as das verbotene dorf—the forbidden village.”[56]

berlinInstead of crying out only against Nazi concentration camps, popular history books should decry all concentration camps, Nazi as well as Soviet, where millions of non-Jews were sent during and after World War II.

The fact that the Holocaust establishment rarely discusses these issues tells us that they are only interested in propagating ideologies as opposed to real history.

The time to move to the next chapter of history and discuss what happened after the war is long overdue. Serious historians cannot live in fear anymore and cannot afford to follow an ideology as opposed to real history.

Noted British historian Giles Macdonogh writes that after the war,

“In most cases it was not the criminals who were raped, starved, tortured or bludgeoned to death but women, children and old men.”[57] It proved to be devastating, “particularly for civilians.”[58] The Red Army

“raped wherever they went. They even raped Russians and Ukrainians. The worst and most aggravated rapes were perpetrated against the women of the enemy—first the Hungarians, then the Germans.”[59]

MacDonogh notes that raping women was probably viewed as “a form of vengeance against these ‘superior women and the best way to humiliate them and their menfolk.”[60]

Historian Alfred Maurice de Zayas likewise notes that “one of the aberrations practiced by the soldiers was to take victims, mostly female, strip them naked and nail them to barn doors in cruciform fashion. This one particular atrocity features prominently in many eyewitness reports.”[61] Road signs read, “Soldier: you are in Germany, take revenge on the Hitlerites.”[62]

Historian Antony Beevor says that the Soviet propaganda of hatred towards the Germans started in 1942.

“Every opportunity had been taken to drum in the scale of German atrocities in the Soviet Union. According to a French informant, the Red Army authorities exhumed the bodies of some 65,000 Jews massacred near Nikolayev and Odessa, and ordered them to be placed alongside the road most used by troops. Every 200 metres a sign declared, ‘Look how the Germans treat Soviet citizens.’”[63]

The political department of the 1st Ukrainian Front declared, “We were constantly trying to step up hatred towards Germans and to stir up a passion for revenge.”[64]

General Ivan Danilovich Chernyakhovsky, who “used to recite poetry with humorous panache” to Ilya Ehrenburg, told his soldiers when they reached East Prussia in January, “Soldier, remember you are now entering the lair of the fascist beast!”[65]

This is not a surprise at all, for Ehrenburg was the author of the novel The Unusual Adventure of Julio Juarenito and his Pupils, in which we find the phrase, “Murders must be committed for the well-being of mankind.”[66]

When a person of some reputation in Great Britain declared that Ehrenburg needed to abandon his “lust for revenge,” Ehrenburg wrote back,

“My mother is religious too, and in the name of religion she asks, ‘kill the Germans with my blessings…One must not pity a wild beast…rather, one must destroy it.”[67]

When Ehrenburg actually saw what the Red Army was doing to the Germans, he “was deeply shaken on a visit, but it did not make him moderate his ferocity in print.”[68] A Soviet soldier remembered,

“There was a big slogan painted up in our canteen, ‘Have you killed a German yet? Then kill him!’ We were very strongly influenced by Ehrenburg’s appeals and we had a lot to take revenge for.”[69]

Historian Richard Bessel declares that the soldiers “unleashed an orgy of wanton destruction…There could be no motive for such destruction other than revenge against a now helpless German population.”[70]

Ilya Ehrenberg

In his last article of the war, Ehrenburg wrote,

“Germany is dying miserably, without pathos or dignity. Let us remember the pompous parades, the Sportpalast in Berlin, where Hitler used to roar that he was going to conquer the world.

“Where is he now? In what hole? He has led Germany to a precipice, and now he prefers not to show himself…Germany does not exist; there is only a colossal gang.”[71]

A talented propagandist, Ehrenburg delivered lectures at the Frunze military academy, condemning what the Red Army was doing and “blaming it on the troops’ ‘extremely low’ level of culture.”

When it came to rape, Ehrengurg’s only defense was that Soviet soldiers “were not refusing ‘the compliments’ of German women.”[72]

Certainly the Red Army took Chernyakhovsky’s and Ehrenburg’s message seriously, as they went out to put churches and civilian buildings to the torch and raped women in West Prussia and Pomerania; many of the victims committed suicide afterwards.[73] One testified that she had been raped thirteen times.[74]

Other crimes against civilians in Pomerania were widespread during the first week of occupation.

“Near the Puttkamers’ village, an elderly couple were chased into the icy waters of a village pond, where they died. A man was harnessed to a plough, which he was forced to drag until he collapsed.

His tormentors then finished him off with a burst of sub-machine-gun fire. Herr von Livonius, the owner of an estate at Grumbkow, was dismembered and his body thrown to the pigs. Even those landowners who had been part of the anti-Nazi resistance fared little better.

“Eberhard von Braunschweig and his family, assuming that they had little to fear, awaited the arrival of the Red Army in their manor house at Lubzow, near Karzin. But his reputation and numerous arrests by the Gestapo did him little good. The whole family was dragged outside and shot.”[75]

When Chernyakhovsky died, Marshal Vasilevsky took over, and was told about the looting and damage that the Red Army was doing. After a moment of silence, “Vasilevsky, perhaps the most intelligent and cultivated of all Soviet commanders,” said, “‘I don’t give a [expletive]. It is now time for our soldiers to issue their own justice.’”[76]

The German civilians, those “fascist beasts,” had to pay a terrible price for the Soviet’s perception of what the Nazis had done. One playwright of the time, Zakhar Agranenko, wrote:

“Red army soldiers don’t believe in ‘in-dividual liaisons.’ Nine, ten, twelve men at a time—they rape them on a collective basis.”[77]

“Burn their homes to the ground and enjoy the flames. These were the messages that permeated the last years of the war. Marshall Zhukov’s orders to the First Belorussian Front on the eve of the January 1945 offensive into Poland did little to dampen the Soviet soldier’s lust for revenge:

“‘Woe to the land of the murderers,’ the orders stated. ‘We will get our terrible revenge for everything.”[78]

One of the Red Army Field Postal Service letters stated:

“And now we take our revenge on the Germans for all their despicable acts committed against us. We’re being allowed to do what we please with the German scoundrels. German mothers shall rue the day they gave birth to a son. May German mothers now feel the horrors of war firsthand.

“What they wanted to do to other people they will now experience themselves! We spend the night in their houses and drive the Germans out into the cold, just like they did to us. There are only old people and children in Germany, very few girls. But we kill them all anyway.

“Now we’re meeting up with German civilians, and our soldiers are making good use of German women. There are plenty of women around, but they don’t understand a word of Russian. But that’s even better because you don’t have to talk them into it.

“Just aim the Nagan [pistol] and shout, “Lie down!”…take care of your business and be off…Our boys have already tried out all the German women.[79]]

Norman Naimark notes that although the reasons for raping and torturing German women were many, one of the primary reasons was that the Russians were directly motivated by vengeance.

Rape “was not fundamentally motivated by sexual needs,” Naimark argues, but “is a crime of violence.” To say that “war breeds rape” does not explain the fact that not only did the Soviets rape women on a massive scale, but that long before they came to Germany, they propagandized “more reason for revenge.”[80]

“Throughout the Soviet press, the idea was widespread that the Germans—women on the home front included—would have to ‘pay’ for their evil deeds.”[81]

The social history of rape was largely “unknown to the Western zones.”[82] “It was not untypical for Soviet troops to rape every female over the age of twelve or thirteen in a village, killing many in the process…The reports of women subjected to gang rapes and ghastly nightly rapes are far too numerous to be considered isolated incidents.”[83]

bobOn February 26, 1945, the Soviets captured one German village and “systematically plundered” it. “Virtually all of the women were raped. ‘The screams of help from the tortured could be heard day and night.’”[84]

When the Soviets finally overtook the city of Budapest, one observer, Julius Hay, noted,

“It was impossible to spend a day or even an hour in Budapest without hearing of brutalities committed by [Russian] soldiers.”[85]

At other occasions, “Hungarian girls were locked in Soviet quarters on the Buda side of the city, where they were repeatedly raped and sometimes killed.”[86] In the city of Rostock, “women and girls were raped in the presence of their children and parents.”[87]

During these circumstances, the German police could do little to stop the violence, since the Soviet soldiers would not hesitate to shoot any police who intervened. Naimark notes that

“the police archives are filled with complaints about the [German police’s] inability to protect German women from rapists ‘in the uniform of the Red Army.’”[88]

 On a few occasions, women would resist the rapists, but they ended up “brutally beaten or killed as a result.” On other occasions, when the attacker was alone, some Germans did not hesitate to show strong resistance:

“In one such instance, a group of young people who beat up a Russian soldier attempting to rape a German girl were arrested by the police for being alleged Werewolves—members of the underground Nazi youth.

“In another, a German policeman was shot and killed while trying to stop the rape of a woman. In the third, the Ministry of International Affairs operations group arrested a German policeman who had seized the Russian rapists.”[89]

There were a number of Russian officers who “were terribly ashamed of the behavior of their compatriots,”[90] and there were a few soldiers punished for their crimes,[91] but that happened only on rare occasions. Raping and plundering were commonplace.

And no one was spared. German women were even raped at transportation centers and railway crossroads, where railway officials could do little to stop the situation.[92] Farmers “who refused to turn over goods to the Soviets or who resisted rape attempts were shot and sometimes killed. Isolated farm houses were broken into and the women were raped.”[93]

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn was a young captain in the Red Army during that time, and he strongly opposed brutal abuse against women and the German people; for that he was sent to the Gulag. He wrote in 1945:

“Yes! For three weeks the war had been going on inside Germany and all of us knew very well that if the girls were Germans they could be raped and then shot. This was almost a combat distinction.”[94]

Rape, “from 1945 to the end of 1946 or the beginning of 1947…became a part of everyday life in the remote villages of Burgenland and Lower Austria.”[95]

Moreover, there seemed to be no age limit, for there were reports that “women as old as eighty” were also victims of the Red Army.[96] And women were raped numerous times; at least one woman by the name of Wanda was raped 128 times.[97]

One sixteen-year-old girl, who had been repeatedly raped, “drowned herself in the Stau Lake.”[98] Nuns were not spared either,[99] and some were reported to have been raped as many as fifty times.[100] Naimark notes that even when German women

“entered bunkers and cellars where Germans hid from fierce fighting, Soviet soldiers brandished weapons and raped women in the presence of children and men. In some cases, soldiers divided up women according to their tastes. In others, women were gang-raped.

Generally, the soldiers raped indiscriminately, not excluding old women in their seventies or young girls.”[101]

Antony Beevor recounts the same thing. After three days, “the women tried to kill the children and themselves by cutting all their wrists, but evidently they had not known how to do it properly.”[102]

When rape was the norm, consequences followed:

“Women committed suicide after the event; many contracted venereal diseases; others became pregnant and had to seek abortions.”[103]

Soldiers were punished for raping women “only if they caught venereal disease from victims, who had usually caught it from a previous rapist.”[104] Today, some Soviet historians, as Antony Beever puts it,

“still produce evasive circumlocutions. ‘Negative phenomena in the army of liberation,’ writes one on the subject of mass rape, ‘caused significant damage to the prestige of the Soviet Union and the armed forces and could have a negative influence in the future relations with the countries through which our troops were passing.”[105]

Abortions, which were illegal in Germany at the time, were done under extreme conditions.

In concentration camps, men and women were forced to perform sexual acts:

“Men and women were stripped naked and forced to perform sadistic acts on one another or eat excrement; girls had to press burning banknotes between their legs. There were many small children in the camp. Some of these were later taken away and given to Polish foster parents.”[106]

Like in our modern day, Jews who stood up against such immorality were severely punished. “When the Ukrainian Jewish intellectual Lev Kopelev tried to intervene to save a German woman from a group of rampaging soldiers, he was accused of ‘bourgeois humanism’ and imprisoned for nine years.”[107]

East Prussia was the first German territory that the Red Army visited. “In the course of a single night,” writes MacDonogh, “the Red Army killed seventy-two women and one man. Most of the women had been raped, of whom the oldest was eighty-four. Some of the victims had been crucified.”[108]

Russian soldiers broke into at least one hospital operated by surgeon Hans Lehndorff and robbed

“his patients of their watches, beating up anyone who stood in their way. One of the attackers, ‘a really young fellow, suddenly burst into tears because he had yet to find a watch. He struck three fingers in the air. He was going to shoot the people if he did not get one at once.’ They found him a watch.”[109]

Watches were so important to them because of their “inability to master anything technical,” and it was considered as “an inexhaustible chapter.”[110] They not only stole watches, but

“all the bicycles they could find. [One woman] saw them take them up to a street near the Hasenheide where they practiced riding them. They sat ‘stiff on the saddles like champanzees in the zoo.’ They frequently fell off before they mastered the use of the two-wheeled beast. Many bicycles were broken in the process and the wreckage strewn over the street.”[111]

The next day, “swarms of soldiers attacked the population as they ventured out of the warrens they had inhabited during the long siege. They were beaten, robbed, stripped and, if female, raped.”[112]

Given those horrible circumstances, “a very large number of [the populace] took their own lives to escape the indignity of Soviet revenge.”[113] The soldiers quickly contracted sexually transmitted diseases.

When that happened, they would burst into hospitals and “demanded treatment at gunpoint.”[114] But nothing dimmed their undying hatred towards the Germans:

“Those who lived in the villages of East Prussia fared no better than the townsfolk. A witness who made it to the west talked of a poor village girl who was raped by an entire tank squadron from eight in the evening to nine in the morning. One man was shot and fed to the pigs.

“Another woman tried to take the last train from Mohringen, but it was derailed and the passengers proceeded on foot, only to run into the Russians. She describes these soldiers breaking into a farmhouse and finding an Iron Cross, Second Class.

“The owner of the decoration and his wife were taken out and shot in the back of the head. The narrator herself was raped around twenty times the night she was captured, but there was worse in the store. She was carried off by two officers and seven men, whom she suspected were deserters, or temporarily estranged from their unit.

“They lodged her and eight other females, including a fourteen-year-old girl, in a house in the forest, where they raped them for a week. Their ordeal came to an end only when the GPU, the secret police, found the house. The woman was then taken to Insterburg and shipped beyond Stalingrad to the north-eastern Urals.

“She was in a carriage with fifty women for three weeks. During that time she had only two hot meals. The guards gave them salted herrings.

“They were so thirsty that they licked the condensation off the window panes. Five of the women had died by the time they reached their destination. They were suffering from typhus, dysentery and facial erysipelas.”[115]

 Once the Russians had done all they could to denigrate the Germans, they set the city on fire. “Once the fun was over the remaining citizens were assembled for forced marches to camps. Anyone who was too old or too ill was shot there and then, either in their beds or in the gutters.”[116]

The Russians moved on to other cities, committing the same horrible crimes. In Pomerania, the women knew about the Russian rapists. “To protect them- selves,” MacDonogh tells us,

“the women covered themselves with ashes to make themselves look old, hobbled around on crutches or painted on red spots to feign disease. In a village near Greifenberg, in the western part of East Pomerania, the squire’s wife Kathe von Normann took the precaution of removing her false front tooth to make herself look older, and dressed herself in peasant costume.

“The older women adopted the same attire. It rarely worked—the Russians were none too choosy anyhow, and the victims ranged in age from tiny children to great-grandmothers.”[117]

In Danzig,

“it was open season for the Russian soldiers once again. They raped, murdered, and pillaged. Women between the ages of twelve and seventy-five were raped; boys who sought to rescue their mothers were pitilessly shot.

“The Russians defiled the ancient Cathedral of Oliva and raped the Sisters of Mercy. Later they put the building to the torch. In the hospitals both nurses and female doctors were subjected to the same outrages after the soldiers drank surgical spirit.

“Nurses were raped over the bodies of unconscious patients in the operating theatres together with the women in the maternity ward. Doctors who tried to stop this were simply gunned down…

“Many Danzigers took their own lives. The men were rounded up, beaten and thrown into the concentration camp at Matzkau. From there 800 to 1,000 were despatched to Russia twice daily.”[118]

Similar things happened in other cities such as Silesia, where

“in one appalling incident thirty women were driven into a barn and raped. When one refused she was shot. The local Soviet commander heard about the atrocity and went to the barn and shot four of his own men.”[119]

One mother “went with her heavily pregnant sister to see a Russian doctor, believing that he would be a civilized man. They were both raped by the medic and a lieutenant, even though she herself was menstruating. The soldiers raped every female they found; one twelve-year-old girl complained of the terrible tearing they had caused her.”[120]

Can the Holocaust establishment really discuss Nazi Germany while ignoring all these facts? Unless those rabble rousers can come to terms with those historical events, we should not listen to their daily moaning, which begins to get on people’s nerves.

  1. The two men most responsible for the German genocide were the Jew war criminals Roosevelt and Churchill. They were more treacherous and evil than Stalin.

  2. ““There is not one German who has not murdered our fathers. Every German is a Nazi. Every German is a murderer.” Menachem Begin, former Prime Minister of Israel”

    And every Jew is a lying Bolshevik Marxist scum bag and a hypocrite.

    Begin was a murdering criminal terrorist so his remarks are keeping with his Pharisee style hypocrisy.

  3. You judge about what you write. Equivalently, that the Russian can think about what your ancestors did to the Indians Cherokee, Navajo, Sioux and Chipev.

    • My ancestors didn’t do anything to them. However we do know that the Paiutes exterminated red haired people they called Si-Te-Cah, who pre-dated them in Nevada. Perhaps the Si-Te-Cah were my ancestors.

  4. When you read contemporary accounts of the chaos in Germany and the terror in Russia in the 1920s you cannot be surprised that Jews were seen as being largely responsible.

    That Israel should be the benificiary of that awful period is a cruel irony. Their attitude seems to be “Blame the victims”, and they now apply that to the Palestinians

  5. “We won this war with atrocity propaganda…and now we will start more than ever! We will continue this atrocity propaganda, we will increase it until nobody will accept one good word from the Germans anymore, until everything is destroyed which might have upheld them sympathies in other countries, and until they will be so confused that they don’t know what to do anymore. When this is reached, when they begin to pollute their own nest, and this not reluctantly but with hasty willingness to obey the winners, only then the victory is complete. It will never be definite. The reeducation demands thorough, steadfast nurture like English lawn. Only one moment of inattention and the weed will break through, this ineradicable weed of historic truth.”
    – Sefton Delmer, former British chief propagandist, commenting after the capitulation in 1945 to the German expert on international law Prof. Grimm.


    “Do not let yourself be disconcerted by the worldwide clamor that will now begin, There will come a day, when all the lies will collapse under their own weight, and truth will again triumph.”
    — Dr. Joseph Goebbels, Berlin, May 1st, 1945.

  6. Eisenhower murdered 1.7 million Germans in prison camps.
    https //www.youtube.com/watch?v=yhl0Jw5JW0c

    Germans were the real victims of WW2.

    See justice4germans.com and ‘the greatest story never told’.

  7. After reading another of Jonas’s works it accorded to me that the bombing of railroads, houses, hospitals, roads, electrical power plants, and entire cities created all of the fatalities in and around Germany. That means every living thing that depended on water, food, shelter and medicine and lived in Germany during and after WWII was at mortal risk. No extermination chambers required, the whole country was a death trap. The U.S. Britain, France, and Russia are responsible, not the Germans.
    This is sick.


    ——Israel the Shameless, Liar the “Evil Empire” & the Most Hated Country in the World—–It’s Self- Destructive Bomb is Ticking.

    —–Today, the Whole World have heard Ron Dermer, the Israeli-American Zionist, the Israeli Ambassador to USA, and a longtime aide to Benjamin Netanyahu, “when he said at an ADL Holocaust gathering (he would not dare to say this anywhere in USA), it was David Ben Gurion who gave Israel it’s independence, (Not USA, UK or UN)”.

    —–“Today, the Whole World learned, Donald Tokowitz Sterling, Israeli-American Zionist, the 80-year-old billionaire and Clippers Owner (since 1981, 33 yrs.) reportedly ordered V. Stiviano, his former mistress who is (black & Mexican), not to be seen in public with black people, and should not bring black associates, including Magic Johnson to Clippers games – and also to remove photos of herself with black people from her Instagram page. Sterling continues “I give them food, and clothes, and cars, and houses,” Sterling also goes down rambling about the Holocaust and asked her how black people are treated in Israel – “the blacks are treated like dogs,” Sterling said. ”

    “She said I kept a photo with Matt Kemp, because he’s (black & Mexican) like me.”

    • The Week of the Zionists Termites Expose

      Hill Republicans call on Kerry to apologize, resign
      for reported Israel ‘apartheid’ remarks

      —The Neo-Cons, the Zionists Termites & Israel Firsters want to make Patricia Nuland the Israeli-American Zionists, a wife a Neo-Con, to become USA Secretary of States.

      ——“A firestorm broke out among congressional Republicans Monday over Secretary of State John Kerry reportedly saying Israel could become an “apartheid state,” with the No. 2 House leader saying he should apologize and a senator calling on him to resign.

      ——“Reports that Secretary Kerry has suggested Israel is becoming an apartheid state are extremely disappointing,” House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, who is Jewish, said in a statement. “The use of the word apartheid has routinely been dismissed as both offensive and inaccurate,and Secretary Kerry’s use of it makes peace even harder to achieve.” The Virginia congressman also urged Kerry to “apologize to the Israeli government and people.”

  9. Another most excellent article in a continuing series of unmatched quality. Welcome to the world of Bolshevism and it “fruits”. This is the hell on earth that Bolshevism and Neo-Bolshevism (what we have now in America) produces. And the origin of Bolshevism is World Zionism, no less, from the same luciferian families that have hijacked America via its Central Banking and who covertly run Congress through Israeli espionage fronts like Aipac, the ADL, B’nai Brith, and the like.

    Bolshevism, Neo-Bolshevism and World Zionism are the Ultimate Evil and plague on Mankind and those who practice such tyranny are the soulless scum of the Earth and deserve to be thrown on the trash-heap of history as soon as possible.

    Since they worship death so much let them all be indicted, tried and executed for Treason, Sedition, Espionage, murder and mass-murder and crimes against humanity, and let them learn firsthand that “payback can be a bitch”.

  10. THANK YOU JONAS, for doing all this tremendous research and stretching out your neck for Germany.All your articles need to be published soon in bookform.Not only will you make a lot of money , once they are sold (unless they don’t let them be sold) but you will become one of Germany’s biggest hero.Thanks again, for your commitment to the truth.Guess, Asia is the safest place to be for your right now.Blessings to you!

  11. Jonas, this is a masterpiece. I have NEVER heard anything resembling this history, naturally, but have often wondered how the German people were SO repressed that there was literally NO ONE to stand up and say, “Hey wait a minute, that’s just not true!”. Now I know… they were all killed, raped, silenced, humiliated, embarrassed and scorned. Makes perfect sense, knowing what I know about the war. Now, it makes PERFECT sense. Thanks for your efforts and please keep them up while you stay safe. Peace.

    • Nothing much has changed truthman. Same dynamics happening today-all over our ‘civilised’ world. Banks doing the works of their masters. Another bankster jumped to her death in Paris following workplace meeting at around 10 am. 14 in a relatively short period.

  12. This disturbing article should go viral. Excellent work, as are all your articles. You say, “Serious historians cannot live in fear anymore and cannot afford to follow an ideology as opposed to real history.” It’s more like they should muster up the courage to do so, although they should rightly fear that their professional careers will be destroyed by the “Masters of Discourse”. One source you don’t mention here, though you may in a future article, is James Bacque’s “Other Losses the Shocking Truth Behind the Mass Deaths of Disarmed German Soldiers and Civilians Under General Eisenhower’s Command”, which documents the intentional Allied policy, especially American and British, to allow to die, especially by exposure, malnutrition, and disease, up to 2 million Germans after the war, by and large civilians, including women and children. The Morgenthau plan under FDR initially sought to exterminate up to 10 million but was ultimately vetoed as “too extreme” since it could end up being counter-productive to the victors. (The only victor, however, was Satan.)

  13. Mr. Alexis just continues to turn out first rate articles.

    It is now time to positively deconstruct the official narrative of the Second World War in Europe as “the Good War”, the war fought by the virtuous allies against the evil Nazis who wanted to take over the world and replace the Bible with Mein Kampf.

    A good start would be reading, or suggesting the reading of a few of these works which I have found extremely enlightening

    “The Last 100 Days” by John Toland.

    “The Origins of the Second World War” by A.J.P. Taylor

    “The Forced War” by David Hoggan

    “Stalin’s War of Extermination” by Joachim Hoffman

    “The Chief Culprit” by Victor Suvorov

    “Hitler’s Revolution” by Richard Tedor

    “Freedom Betrayed Herbert Hoover’s Secret History of the Second World War and its Aftermath” by Herbert Hoover

    “Adolf Hitler Democrat” by Leone Degrelle

    “The Second World War” by JFC Fuller

    “Bombing Vindicated” by JM Spaight

  14. So how well does revenge work? The American, French, British and Soviet soldier goes home and regales his parents, wife and children with stories of raping old women and children, killing defenseless people? Of a particular torture he invented? Unfortunately among their numbers are some prominent persons like Dwight Eisenhower and his concentration camps. You have harmed me so now I will harm myself again by harming you. A strange and perverse logic is at work. We all have to live with our memories even the ones we repress. And bad and terrible dreams deprive one of the much desired sleep of the just. Oneself is the one person one can not escape. So then what does one do with memories of women screaming and memories of blood splattering from gun shots and violent blows? And for some reason alcohol and drugs fail as a repressant and may even ignite anamnesis. Perhaps in the end a revolver pressed against one’s skull works best.

    • “Perhaps in the end a revolver pressed against one’s skull works best.” To be or not to be, THAT is the question. Apologies to Bill Shakespeare. I say go for it. Then, peace.

  15. In one of the novels of The Avignon Quintet (1992), Lawrence Durrell presents a French woman through whose affair with a German officer the lives of many French persons were saved in the south of France. Since he lived in the south of France his tale is no doubt based on stories he was told. Of course she had to punished later on for her evil alliance.

    Well, there is nothing like killing children as a remedy for Weltschmerz. And just to show how evil the Nazis were the occupied when liberated needed to do exactly the same evil deeds!

    If one will remember the treatment meted out to the native Americans over a long period of time (even now poisoning their wells and the air with uranium mining operations) it is no puzzle that when given the opportunity there will always be sufficient demented persons to treat people horribly and sufficient weak ones to join in the activity.

    And we call animals brutal!

  16. I hope these brilliant articles will soon be appearing in a book.

    Just a slight correction to the photo caption that reads “German corpses after the war”. Not to be too persnickety, but that is a photo taken after the Allies firebombed Dresden, an undefended city of refugees women and children during the closing months of the war.

    There was a “holocaust” in WWII all right, but it occurred in places like Dresden, Hamburg, and Forzheim.(sp?)

    One last note that might help your already encyclopedic “holocaust” knowledge. That photo is what bodies look like after they have been burned on railway ties. It is claimed that the alleged 870,000 bodies that vanished at Treblinka were burned using this method.

    One can compare that photo of dead burned Germans and wonder if the genetic makeup of Jews is so vastly different from gentiles that Jews burst into flames like the vampyres in the Blade movies?

  17. On the eve of the Second World War, when a British ambassador to Germany protested Nazi camps, Herman Goering rebuffed the criticism by pulling out an encyclopedia and looking up the entry for concentration camps, which credited the British with being the first to use them in the Boer War.

  18. The distinction has to be made between Soviet Bolsheviks and Russians. We allow ourselves into a trap when we do not distinguish the two. Only one group reserves for themselves their ‘sacred right of revenge’, using collective judgment, guilt, sentencing and punishment against the elderly, women, and children for future generations. We must reject that self awarded “right”. The use of the “third echelon” by the Soviets and the Allies is an interesting study. After victory was assured, the Soviets escalated their third echelon to the front lines to appear as liberators’ while they committed atrocities using their ‘sacred right’ against the defenseless. The third echelon then were first out of the crime scene to return home leading the victors parade. Meanwhile, the Americans were halted at the Elbe, while the Soviet third echelon destroyed and planted evidence, on their rampage of revenge to Berlin as a part of their ‘first mover’ advantage given to the Soviets at Yalta by the U.S. Then the Allied U.S. third echelon arrived in the form of legal and psy-ops teams to bookend the crimes, turning western legal civilization on its ear at Nurenburg. Let us reject the lies that were forced upon us as “history”.

    • I’d think that about sums it up what was really behind it, and the holohoax lies too. from what I’ve been learning, hitler was deporting a “whoish problem” was just a part of a plan to establish a fascist izrahell from the start. relocation camps werent concentration camps until after “allies” had cut all supply lines, is when the massive dying by starvation and disease began, but to tell the truth would destroy the myths as well as political “power” gained, by some of the most ruthless satanic critters on the planet!
