73rd Anniversary of Bombing of Dresden – Worst War Crime of 20th Century?

73 years ago today, the British RAF began a bombing attack on the German city of Dresden, an attack specifically ordered by Prime Minister Winston Churchill.

In stark contrast to the propagandistic garbage spewed by so-called historians who, in reality are professional liars who never dare to veer from the orthodox, approved narrative, I am going to call the bombing of Dresden what it was – a truly disgusting and murderous war crime, an unjustifiable mass murder that was ordered by a bloodthirsty alcoholic and served no purpose in the war effort.

Germany was already a defeated nation by February 1945, it was just a matter of time before the allied armies overran all of the territory of the Reich and forced the Germans into unconditional surrender.

Murderous bombing raids like Dresden were a prime factor in ensuring the German troops fought to the bitter end, which cost untold numbers of lives of Allied servicemen and prolonged the war.

Dresden was a cultural centre of great historical importance and one of the most architecturally beautiful cities in the entire world; however, it was not in any way, shape or form, a valid target for annihilation as it did not contain any significant industries or facilities, nothing that was important to the German war effort.

As the firestorm blazes, another 8,000lb bomb hurtles down into the inferno, silhouetted against the blazing city.

Dresden did contain the Carl Zeiss factory that made the famous Contax cameras and some optics used by the German armed forces, but this was hardly a major target, the Zeiss factory that made a significant input to the war effort was located in the city of Jena.

The bombing attack was ordered by Churchill himself, and he was fully aware of the fact Dresden was not a target of significance to the war effort, so the motives for the attack are not altogether clear, most likely, Churchill wanted to demonstrate to the Russians the sheer destructive power of the British and American strategic bomber forces.

A horrific firestorm begins in a German city, as more target indicator showers rain down as guides for the oncoming main force.

Certainly Churchill knew that it was a city packed with refugees escaping the advancing Red Army and certainly he was aware of the fact that unleashing a holocaust on the city was a great crime – we have proof of this as a month later, Churchill attempted to shift the blame onto the RAF, an action that was bitterly opposed an the memo Churchill sent was angrily returned; the RAF steadfastly refused to have the blame shifted onto them.

In March 1945 Churchill wrote to his Chiefs of Staff, attempting to shrug off responsibility for the Dresden raids. They refused to accept the document

The official figure of 25,000 deaths is nonsense, the real figure is many times greater; no-one will ever know for sure, but it is highly likely that several hundred thousand innocent Germans, mostly civilians and many of them homeless refugees were consumed by the firestorm. Furthermore, the death toll was deliberate – the RAF and USAF tactics were specifically designed to maximise the number of casualties.

The atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and the fire bombing of Tokyo rival Dresden for murderous destruction, but those cities were legitimate targets that contained vital war industries and military facilities; Dresden stands alone as a great war crime as it was unjustifiable as part of the war effort. Quite simply, it was deliberate wholesale slaughter of innocent civilians.

There is one historian who has honestly written about the destruction of Dresden and that is David Irving, his work on the subject earned him worldwide acclaim and brought into the Anglosphere a subject that had been almost completely unknown – even senior RAF commanders were largely unaware of the true nature of the death and destruction.

I encourage everyone to educate themselves about the bombing of Dresden, it will cause you to reassess what you think you know about World War 2 and who were the ‘good

guys’. The stark truth is that the Allies were far from the ‘good guys’ that we have been programmed to believe they were and that many war crimes and incidents of mass murder and genocide were carried out against the people of continental Europe, Dresden is just the prime example.

David Irving has made the full text of his book available at his website:

Apocalypse 1945: the Destruction of Dresden by David Irving

Or you can buy it at Amazon or your local bookstore, why I encourage everyone to do, this is a crime that must be remembered.

You can also watch the videos of Irving’s lectures on the subject:

  1. Nicely done Ian; hope you are feeling better. As a child I read Slaughterhouse Five by Vonnegut; it takes me back a bit to think of those being burned to death in a firestorm. Truly no one wants to believe that their Nation is capable of such an evil senseless action. Thank God for television, eh?

  2. “Appropriately enough, it is a distinction which is much less clear in the German, and perhaps in other European languages than it is in our own.
    ‘Recht’ for example covers both LAW and RIGHT in some contexts where we are obliged to choose one word or the other.

    • “The course of events, and the genius of the English language, seem together to have taken early cognizance of the fact that

      a separate name would be required for
      the thing peculiar to those who speak it, namely

      a rule of conduct which is enforceable by the Courts
      before
      it has been enacted by the legislature –
      a common or ‘unwritten’ LAW.”

      – Barrister Owen Barfield:
      History of English Words

    • PS: I am willing to entertain the objection Barrister Barfield has overlooked the German noun ‘Gesetz’, yet his argument refers to a matter I believe not covered by this interesting noun.

  3. Ian is right about established historians but hasnt fully decoded the extent of what they are hiding. While it is true that bankers are deeply involved, the jewish bankers actually supported the rise of Bismarck and Germany’s unification. Unknown to most the British elites for a century had been working Germany and other nations against the jews in order to prevent any potential move away from Britain as the most important partner.
    At the time when the bankers were up to their necks in causing the bloodshed they really believed that the continental people hated them for irrational reasons and that the angloamericans were their best chance.The British deep state (including Edward VII until 1910), were extremely significant in coercing Germany into war as well as in helping nazism to come about. So even if Ian may speak for the common people there was more than bankers behind that troubled era.

    • PS: On the other shore Larry Horn, negation expert, wrote me, yes, Yale library ain’t got no Anthony Suttons today.

    • I was most grateful for the German librarian’s offer to donate the copy of Barrister Shrimpton’s book for which I was promised in January 2014
      the university library would notify me when ready to borrow, but didn’t. After reading the first 25 pages, I wrote the libraeian he was completely wrong.

    • PS: The same German librarian responsible for acquisition of the book for the university library had received from the publisher a copy of Spyhunter and kept it for two years for himself, without notifying me, violating his duty. After repeatedly checking the university library catalogue to only find only the indication the book was “in process”, I went to the library a short while ago to complain.

    • ….and Hitler was the illegitimate grandson of one of the Rothschild…..hence his hook nose….it was all a Zio game and the bankers were the only ones laughing….all the way to the bank

    • Please observe that the two Germans who post here have in common their concern about Germany, that’s fine. But after awhile one notices many Germans are only interested in Germany – get it? Persons like Ian who present unprejudiced reports will be applauded, as also those who report non-German anti-German factors also get German applause. That’s why it’s important to point out to Germans there ain’t no Ich without Universe.
      (Buber and Gotthard Gunther tried it with Du.)

  4. Winston Churchill, instead of being hailed a great statesman, should instead be treated as the despicable drunkard, degenerate and war criminal that he is. A liar, fraud and self serving individual who cared for nothing else but himself. Someone who constantly backpedaled when ever anything backfired on him and was even quicker to absolve himself of any blame.
    He owed everything to his zionist masters who continually bailed him out financially. His life history should read one of self serving at the cost of others, of catastrophic failures and miscalculations. Both world wars lay at the feet of that fat, bloated degenerate and disparate Churchill.
    The fire bombing of Dresden along with the criminal bombing campaign over North korea will both go down as the great war crimes of the 20th century.
    The only other war crime is the creation of the state of israel.
    If you wish to read further about Churchill’s grand exploits, I suggest the book, ” Churchill, Hitler and the Unnecessary War” by Pat Buchanan.

    • Greetings John
      Without getting into a tirade over the causes of ww2 it suffices to point to the front page of headline march 24 1933 ( 33! ) in the Daily Express “Judea declares war on Germany” ( and similarly ones inother cmm papers in the ‘West’, and not withstanding noble attempts by some to shine a light on these crimes, the zio takeover was successful- Germany’s constitution is not beeing used, Germany does not have a peace treaty, the German people are forced to borrow from zio owned & operated high-finance and media is censored. Not to mention all the political prisoners.

    • Why doesn’t Aldebaran mention the fact what role the Roman Catholic church has in departments of theology and philosophy in which German state universities and why?

    • Wunderbar Andreas, thankyou very much. I highly recommend all of David Irving’s books for real insight into WW2 and the Nazi era, many of them are available in German too as Irving is fluent in the language. Here is something to consider that is quite shocking and disturbing – Irving is probably the only English language historian and author who actually speaks and reads German! So all the others who write about WW2 cannot look at German archives and source material. If there are other WW2/Nazi era subjects you would like to see covered, please ask and I would be delighted to do my best to cover them.

      The British and German peoples are full blood brothers and sisters and we never, ever fought each other for centuries; the first time we fought each other was 1914, a war manufactured by the bankers.

      My Grandfather’s generation and my great grandfather’s fought Germany, so I want to do my best to try to repair some of the damage done to Anglo-German relations by those conflicts and the best way I can do that is to share with people the truth about how those conflicts were engineered and artificially created.

      Best wishes from England.

    • Thank you Andreas for translating it to german so my brother and sister, who are not able to read English text can read it now for themselves

    • BTW my old boss, who was a medical doctor in germany (borne in 1918) told me also about the “Rheinwiesenlager” and we often visited the war important parts of France. His father, who was also a medical doctor in WW 1 was stationed in Laon/France in the hospital in the church of Laon.
      My old boss wasn´t able anymore to drive for himself so I helped him and got a lot to see on these places for which he paid me and the journey. Also Verdun was on that list.

    • It is indeed a sad sign that persons for whom I have great respect are so naive to believe the absurd assertion the Dresden bombing is not known in Germany. I have never met a German student at a German university who does not know about the Dresden bombing, and I have heard many complain about it.

    • Well, it would not surprise me if Shrimpy is working on his own article on Dresden, but given that he described the RAF terror bombing of German civilians as a ‘glorious slaughter’ and lamented that ‘we didn’t kill enough German civilians’ I expect his article will be rather different than mine.

    • as usual the videos are not available in country domain germany. God thx that moste of them are already available in Prox domains or via VPN.
      Shrimpy is a barrister by BAR Assoziation so no wonder he has to hate the germans. Even suspend he can create a lot of damage, this warmonger.

    • That’s characteristic for a dream state of consciousness that a link is given for videos in German for our German readers when anybody in Germany or Switzerland knows videos featuring David Irving cannot be viewed online because of German and Swiss laws. Who cares?

    • I asked Barrister Shrimpton to consider in the revised 2nd edition of his book what Jim Fetzer says to JFK & 9/11 and Richard Hall to Madeleine McCann, since neither Jim nor Richard want to consider what Michael writes. – I doubt that there are significant non-German historians of German history who cannot read and speak German. I also doubt that the injustice and inhumanity of the Dresden bombing has been ignored by German historians.

  5. I used to say: the magnitute of mankind’s inhumanity to man never ceases to amaze me. That was before I realized it is not man’s inhumanity to man but those satan worshipers inhumanity to man. They simply are beasts, servants who were tricked into trading their souls and the untold misery of mankind for a comfortable, temporal and fleeting existence. I do not hold against them their cruelty. What I hold against them is their loss of instinct.
    We should not hold accountable alone Churchill or Stalin or any psycopath who wants wealth and power or any of those soulless men but, we should hold those responsible those grooming them to never question a method towards the goal because the method is the goal. The goal is the slow torturous destruction of the Human soul and spirit. They are the same soulless men that hatched countless wars, the Napoleonic wars, WW1&2 to name a few; and are in the process of incubating unimagined misery to unleash on this planet. Those men we know whom they are and where they live. Those are the same men with the lineage of the beast in them, they are those of the mark of Cain, a mark of wealth and power. What are we going to do about them?

  6. BTW I just took a look at this report https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ppnj0rZKfqQ
    It also deals with Churchill, but gives a different (Russian) version of Churchill’s relation with Stalin, than the one we usually hear :
    “ What if everything you think you know about Joseph Stalin isn’t true? Similarly, what if the icon you perceive Winston Churchill to have been – is a mere illusion of history? Anomalies in the way history is written is nothing new; the more or less objective truth is published many years later.”
    In this episode, Mikhail Poltoranin, former Head of the Government Committee on the Declassification of KGB “Archives, talks about the way that the US airforce bombed Soviet bases in 1950 – in reaction to Stalin’s power. But they didn’t stop until their mission was complete – that is the death of Stalin. It’s even possible that others within the Soviet system were asked to take responsibility for his death – given the many theorists who took on that claim, as explained by Poltoranin . . . ”

  7. Think General Longstreet summed up the shameful actions of the British Jewish overlords when he said
    “This was a measure of unnecessary severity towards non-combatants and had an unsalutary effect. When men volunteer to fight in their countries cause they should be credited with faith in it’s righteousness and with expectations of meeting soldiers worthy of their mettle. Appeals to turn their strength against women and children and non-combatants are offensive to manhood , demoralizing in influence and more likely to aggravate and prolong the war spirit than to open ways of order and amity.”

    What’s really untrue is that this terror bombing of German , Japanese and even British cities had an effect on the outcome of the war , wars end when the nations army surrenders not when women and children are destroyed. It was thus in the American civil war , it ended when Lee & Johnston surrendered their armies and could fight on no more, not when Richmond fell, or when Atlanta was burned. It was thus in WW2 also the German army could fight no more and the Japanese also.

  8. This exebistionist ( apptly labeled by A.H. as the archtype of a corrupt and drunk journalist ) also about the same time drew up a list of 45 population centres in Germany to be bombed with poison gas. Some advisers however talked Churchill out of this as it was feared ( and rightly so ) that Germany might possess something as bad or worse.
    The truth about crimes or alleged crimes usually eventually comes out, like in golf of Tonking, WMD’s in Irak etc., ( depending how important the lie is for the overall conduct of world affairs ) but by then those responsible are succeded in office or are deceased but the damage is done and the ‘goywheel of change’ keeps turning.

    • It wouldn’t be the first time that drunken fool brought up gassing entire populations. Included are the Indians and the Aborigines in Australia.
      It’s difficult to fathom how Churchill thought this way. It is rumored his biological father was not Lord Churchill and that Lord Churchill was actually sterile from syphilis.

    • It is being dug up, that real history. The darkness of a moonless night never extinguishes the light of dawn, it just delays it. Soon light will shine on the truth.

    • “In the 9th & 10th centuries these Northmen, the Scandinavian Teutons, whom our ancestors called Danes, established an ascendancy over a large part of England. They seem to have mingled easily with the English, and we can trace back to their dialect some of the very commonest features of our language.

    • “The mighty word LAW, together with OUTLAW, . . . serve to remind us that the Danish ascendancy was no hugger-mugger affair, but a firm political organization. . . .
      Thus, our useful distinction between LAW and RIGHT was once geographical rather than semantic, the two words covering roughly the eastern and western halves of England.
