CHAPTER 1: NAZIS AND ZIONISTS BEFORE THE WAR
on January 27, 2018
Section 1: Nazi Anti-Semitism and Jewish Emigration from Greater Germany 1933–1940
The first thing that any rational person notices about media coverage of the Third Reich, Hitler, or the “Six Million” story, is that although there is always plenty of coverage of Nazi Anti-Semitism, there is hardly any attempt to explain why Hitler was able to come to power on such a strongly anti-Jewish political platform.
If this topic is addressed at all, it is quite often claimed that the Nazis were “jealous” of Jewish money, intellect or achievements, or any variation on that topic. The reality is, like the entire Six Million narrative, very different to the postwar propaganda.
The real reasons for Nazi anti-Semitism were far deeper:
- Jews were identified as a racially-alien group engaged in political, social and moral subversion. Politically, the Nazis pointed to the undisputed facts that the founder of Communism, Karl Marx, had been a Jew; that a majority of the Communist leaders who had seized power in the “Russian Revolution” of 1917 had been Jews (such as Leon Trotsky, real name Bronstein); that the majority of post First World War Communist leaders in Germany had been Jews (Rosa Luxemburg and Karl Liebknecht); that much of the mass media in Germany was owned by Jews; that Jews were largely responsible for “modern art,”; that those convicted of war-profiteering and financial swindles of the 1920s were Jews (the Sklarek scandal, which also involved the Social Democratic Party, being the most famous case), etc.
- The Nazis also associated Jews with extremist capitalist exploitation, which was linked to a much older—and European-wide—objection to Jewish financial dealings. Objections to Jewish money lending practices were as old as the Jewish community in Europe, and were even specifically mentioned in the English Magna Carta. They were also the primary reason why Jews were expelled from every single European nation during the Middle Ages.
In summary then, the Nazis sought to expel Jews from all aspects of Germany political cultural and social life, and it was to this end that their anti-Semitic policies were aimed.
To this end, by order of Reich Marshal Hermann Göring, a “Reich Central Office for Jewish Emigration” was set up, whose official tasks were listed as follows:
a) to make all necessary arrangements for the preparation for an increased emigration of the Jews,
b) to direct the flow of emigration,
c) to speed the procedure of emigration in each individual case.”
(Wannsee Protocol, January 20, 1942.)
Below: Contrary to postwar propaganda, the Nazi government actively encouraged Jewish emigration. This illustration, from the Encyclopedia Judaica (1971), Vol. 7, col. 494, shows Jews waiting at the Palestine Office, Berlin, for permits to enter Palestine (“Eretz Israel”) in 1939.
According to official figures, there were approximately 523,000 Jews in Germany as of January 1933, prior to the Nazis coming to power. At the time of the annexation of Austria in 1938, there were approximately 181,882 Jews in that country.
The Nazi efforts to encourage Jews to leave this combined “Greater Germany” were largely successful. By September 1939, approximately 282,000 Jews had left Germany and 117,000 had left Austria. Of these, some 95,000 emigrated to the United States, 60,000 to Palestine, 40,000 to Great Britain, and about 75,000 to Central and South America, with the largest numbers entering Argentina, Brazil, Chile, and Bolivia. More than 18,000 Jews went to Shanghai, in Japanese-occupied China, creating a long-lasting Jewish settlement there.
By 1940, official figures showed that 131,800 Jews remained in Germany, and 43,700 in Austria—a total of 175,500. (Wannsee Protocol, January 20, 1942.) This was a significant decline from the pre-war total of 704,882.
Section 2: Zionist and Nazi Collaboration on the 1935 Nuremberg Laws
It is one of the great ironies of history that the Zionists and National Socialist government policy with regard to Jews coincided to a very large degree. In fact, National Socialist and Zionist policy coincided prior to the war, and cooperation carried on at least until 1943, as will be shown below.
The reason for the Zionist-Nazi cooperation was simple: the Nazis wanted the Jews to leave Germany, and the Zionists wanted the Jews to come to Palestine to help create the Zionist state.
The 1935 Nuremberg Laws, for example, which are now dismissed as “Nazi anti-Semitic laws,” were in fact drawn up with the active assistance and support of the German Council of Jews.
What makes this fact even more astounding is that the definition of who is a Jew, as created by Israel’s Law of Return, as amended in 1970, is based on the definition as contained in the Nuremberg Laws (Jewish Virtual Library, The Law of Return: An Introduction,2014, The American-Israeli Enterprise).
Thus it is no surprise that soon after the Nazis came to power, the Zionist Federation of Germany submitted a document to Hitler’s office which offered its support in “solving the Jewish question” (Memo of June 21, 1933, as reproduced in The Third Reich and the Palestine Question, Francis R. Nicosia, Austin: University of Texas, 1985, p. 42). The document continued:
“Zionism believes that the rebirth of the national life of a people, which is now occurring in Germany through the emphasis on its Christian and national character, must also come about in the Jewish national group. Our acknowledgment of Jewish nationality provides for a clear and sincere relationship to the German people and its national and racial realities. Precisely because we do not wish to falsify these fundamentals, because we, too, are against mixed marriage and are for maintaining the purity of the Jewish group and reject any trespasses in the cultural domain, we—having been brought up in the German language and German culture—can show an interest in the works and values of German culture with admiration and internal sympathy” (ibid.).
When the Nuremberg Laws were first adopted by the Nazi Party at its congress of 1935, they were specifically welcomed by the Zionist-supporting Jewish German newspaper, the Jüdische Rundschau, which published an editorial which read:
“Germany … is meeting the demands of the World Zionist Congress when it declares the Jews now living in Germany to be a national minority. Once the Jews have been stamped a national minority it is again possible to establish normal relations between the German nation and Jewry.
“The new laws give the Jewish minority in Germany its own cultural life, its own national life. In future it will be able to shape its own schools, its own theater, and its own sports associations. In short, it can create its own future in all aspects of national life.
“Germany has given the Jewish minority the opportunity to live for itself, and is offering state protection for this separate life of the Jewish minority: Jewry’s process of growth into a nation will thereby be encouraged and a contribution will be made to the establishment of more tolerable relations between the two nations” (Jüdische Rundschau, Sept. 17, 1935).
Below: The Jüdische Rundschau, Sept. 17, 1935, the official Zionist newspaper in Germany, which welcomed and supported the Nuremberg Laws. This support for the legal definition of who is a Jew—as created by Nazis and Jews working together—is still referenced to the present-day in Israel’s “Law of Return” which regulates Jewish immigration into that state.
The head of the Zionist State Organization, the Jewish Cultural League, and former head of the Berlin Jewish Community, Georg Kareski, declared in an interview with the Nazi newspaper Der Angriff that:
“For many years I have regarded a complete separation of the cultural affairs of the two peoples [Jews and Germans] as a pre-condition for living together without conflict . . . I have long supported such a separation, provided it is founded on respect for the alien nationality. The Nuremberg Laws . . . seem to me, apart from their legal provisions, to conform entirely with this desire for a separate life based on mutual respect . . . This interruption of the process of dissolution in many Jewish communities, which had been promoted through mixed marriages, is therefore, from a Jewish point of view, entirely welcome” (Der Angriff, Dec. 23, 1935).
Section 3: “A Nazi Travels to Palestine”—How the SS Supported the Zionist Colonization of Palestine
The SS—supposedly the epitome of evil, if postwar propaganda is to be taken at face value—was particularly enthusiastic in its support for Zionism. A June 1934 internal SS position paper urged active and wide-ranging support for Zionism by the government and the Party as the best way to encourage emigration of Germany’s Jews to Palestine.
The Zionist-SS co-operation became public when SS officer Leopold von Mildenstein and Zionist Federation official Kurt Tuchler, toured Palestine together for six months in order to assess the progress of the Jewish colonization efforts.
Von Mildenstein wrote a series of twelve illustrated articles for the important Nazi paper, published by Joseph Goebbels, Der Angriff, in late 1934 under the heading A Nazi Travels to Palestine. The articles expressed great admiration for the pioneering spirit and achievements of the Jewish settlers. “A Jewish homeland in Palestine,” von Mildenstein wrote, “pointed the way to curing a centuries-long wound on the body of the world: the Jewish question.”
Below: Ein Nazi Fahrt Nach Palastina—“A Nazi Travels to Palestine.” A selection of articles from the Joseph Goebbels-edited newspaper, Der Angriff, as penned by SS officer Leopold von Mildenstein.
Der Angriff issued a special medal, with a Swastika on one side and a Star of David on the other, to commemorate the joint SS-Zionist visit. A few months after the articles appeared, von Mildenstein was promoted to head the Jewish affairs department of the SS security service in order to support Zionist migration.
Below: The medallion ordered struck by the Joseph Goebbels-edited newspaper, Der Angriff, to mark the Zionist-Nazi cooperation with regard to Palestine. The medallion contained the title of the article which appeared in his newspaper, “A Nazi Travels to Palestine,” encircling a Star of David.
The official SS newspaper, Das Schwarze Korps, proclaimed its support for Zionism in a May 1935 front-page editorial: “The time may not be too far off when Palestine will again be able to receive its sons who have been lost to it for more than a thousand years. Our good wishes, together with official goodwill, go with them.”
Section 4: Nazi Financial Assistance to Zionism: the “Haavara” Transfer Agreement
The centerpiece of Nazi-Zionist cooperation was something called the “Transfer Agreement,” a pact that enabled tens of thousands of German Jews to migrate to Palestine with their wealth.
The Agreement, also known as the Haavara (Hebrew for “transfer”), was concluded in August 1933 following talks between German officials and Chaim Arlosoroff, Political Secretary of the Jewish Agency, the Palestine center of the World Zionist Organization.
Through this arrangement, each Jew bound for Palestine deposited money in a special account in Germany. The money was used to purchase German-made agricultural tools, building materials, pumps, fertilizer, and so forth, which were exported to Palestine and sold there by the Jewish-owned Haavara company in Tel-Aviv. Money from the sales was given to the Jewish emigrant upon his arrival in Palestine in an amount corresponding to his deposit in Germany. German goods poured into Palestine through the Haavara, which was supplemented a short time later with a barter agreement by which Palestine oranges were exchanged for German timber, automobiles, agricultural machinery, and other goods.
The Agreement thus served the Zionist aim of bringing Jewish settlers and development capital to Palestine, while simultaneously serving the German goal of freeing the country of an unwanted alien group.
Hitler personally reviewed the policy in July and September 1937, and again in January 1938, and each time decided to maintain the Haavara arrangement. The goal of removing Jews from Germany, he concluded, justified the drawbacks, which included alienating the Arab world.
Below: A Nazi-Zionist Haavara certificate issued in Hebrew and in English.
The Reich Economics Ministry helped to organize another transfer company, the International Trade and Investment Agency, or Intria, through which Jews in foreign countries could help German Jews immigrate to Palestine. Almost $900,000 was eventually channeled through the Intria to German Jews in Palestine.
Other European countries eager to encourage Jewish emigration concluded agreements with the Zionists modeled after the Haavara.
In 1937 Poland authorized the Halifin (Hebrew for “exchange”) transfer company. By late summer 1939, Czechoslovakia, Romania, Hungary, and Italy had signed similar arrangements. The outbreak of war in September 1939, however, prevented large-scale implementation of these agreements.
Section 5: The Jewish Declaration of War against Germany and the Organized Boycott of German Goods
Zionist cooperation with the National Socialist German government was however marked by extreme schizophrenia. While some Jews actively sought out German assistance in building Palestine, others viewed the Nazis as mortal enemies. On September 5, 1939, Chaim Weizmann declared war against Germany on behalf of the world’s Jews, stating: “the Jews stand by Great Britain and will fight on the side of the democracies... The Jewish Agency is ready to enter into immediate arrangements for utilizing Jewish manpower, technical ability, resources etc.”(Jewish Chronicle, September 8, 1939).
Below: As early as March 24, 1933, World Jewry had declared war on Germany. Despite the Nazis’ best efforts to cooperate with the Zionists, who also sought the removal of Jews from Germany, the German government regarded the Jewish population as subversives and justified their physical expulsion by pointing to announcements such as this one.
This announcement was repeated in banner headlines in many newspapers of the time. World Jewry therefore declared itself to be a belligerent party in the Second World War, and there was therefore ample basis under international law for the Germans to intern the Jewish population as a hostile force. In response to these campaigns, the National Socialist government organized its own boycott of Jewish businesses within Germany.
These images are most often shown without it being explained that they were reactions to the Jewish-initiated boycott outlined above.
Below: A mass rally of Jews in New York City, 1933, calling for a boycott of Germany.
Below: The organized Jewish boycott is announced in London, 1933, using the same headline as in the Daily Express.
Below: Advertising by the American Jewish War Veterans calling for a boycott of Germany, 1933. The boycott started in March 1933 in both Europe and the US and continued until the entry of the US into the war.
Below: The Nazi boycott of Jewish businesses in Germany, was, unlike the Jewish boycott of Germany, a one-day affair held on April 1, 1933. Images such as these are always presented without the explanation that the Nazi boycott was only a reaction to the international Jewish measures implemented elsewhere in the world.
Section 6: The Truth about Kristallnacht
One of the most commonly referred to events in pre-war Germany was the wholesale attacks by crowds of Germans on Jewish shops during the night of November 9–10, 1938. Large numbers of shop windows were smashed out, with the broken glass then giving rise to the “crystal” name. The events of Crystal Night are important because they provide a valuable lesson in how postwar propaganda presents events in Nazi Germany—and how important information is deliberately left out to provide as incomplete a picture as possible.
The attacks on Jewish businesses was not “pre-planned” as the postwar allegations claim, but were a spontaneous outburst of anger which followed two high profile murders—by Jews—of important German figures outside the country.
The first murder occurred on February 4, 1936, when the Jew David Frankfurter shot dead Wilhelm Gustloff, the German leader of the Nazi Party in Switzerland. Gustloff’s murder was greeted with outrage in Germany, and his funeral was attended by tens of thousands of mourners, including Hitler, Goebbels, Göring, Himmler, and German foreign minister Joachim von Ribbentrop. Gustloff was proclaimed a Nazi Blutzeuge (martyr) and had a large ship named after him.
Below: Left: The NSDAP leader in Switzerland, Wilhelm Gustloff, murdered by the Jew David Frankfurter, right.
German public outrage over the Gustloff murder had barely subsided when the Jew Herschel Grynszpan murdered the German diplomat Ernst vom Rath inside the German embassy in Paris on November 7, 1938.
Below: Left: The German diplomat in Paris, Ernst vom Rath, murdered by the Jew Herschel Grynszpan, right.
When news of the second murder reached Germany, angry crowds turned out in the streets all over Germany and attacked Jewish shops and synagogues.
The vehemence of the reaction took Germany’s leadership by surprise, and the attacks only stopped after Goebbels issued a public order for the violence to stop, as was reported in the New York Times of November 11, 1938.
That newspaper also reported that the attacks were “revenge” for the Vom Rath murder.
Below: Even the New York Times admitted in its coverage of the events of Kristalnacht that it was Goebbels and the Nazi leadership who halted the violence. This fact is always ignored by the Holocaust storytellers.
Postwar coverage of Kristallnacht almost always omits to provide the two most important facts around this unfortunate incident: namely that:
– The attacks were spontaneous responses to a series of murders committed by Jews on prominent Germans; and
– That the “pogrom” was stopped after the Nazi leadership, taken by surprise over its violence, ordered it halted.
This technique of “omitting” all the facts and instead presenting only one aspect—in this case the events of the night of November 9–10, 1938 in isolation so as to create an “impression” rather than the full story—is the model used by all postwar propaganda around the Six Million story, as will be seen below.
Section 7: The Creation of the Concentration Camps
The concentration camp system lies at the core of the Six Million story, and, just like Kristallnacht, has also been subjected to an ongoing series of “impressions” rather than the full facts since 1945. Firstly, as is well-known amongst historians, the first concentration camps were not German, but British, and date from the Second Anglo-Boer War of 1899–1902.
Disease—typhus in particular—was a great killer in these British camps, and idiot of dying internees display the characteristic thinness and weakness which post-World War II propaganda has most commonly—and falsely—associated with “gassings” in German camps.
Below: Lizzie Van Zyl (1894 –May 9, 1901), a child inmate who died from typhus in the British-built Bloemfontein, South Africa, concentration camp during the Second Anglo-Boer War of 1899–1902. The thin body—caused by dehydration which follows massive diarrhea—was also seen in the German concentration camps. While pictures of thin bodies are most often presented as evidence of “gassing,” they are in fact the product of typhus.
Secondly, the legal basis for the creation of the concentration camp system in Germany was not, as is often claimed, Nazi in origin, but based upon the Weimar Constitution, which preceded Hitler’s coming to power. Article 48 of the Weimar Constitution specifically allowed for emergency measures to be taken to suspend civil liberties, a fact which was used to set up the legal framework for the concentration camp system
Thirdly, the camps were not set up to “imprison all Jews,” as postwar propaganda has claimed. The camps were first and foremost prisons for political dissidents, then specially-created labor camps, then prisoner of war camps (Auschwitz, dealt with below, was for example originally a POW camp for Polish soldiers), and then finally, transit camps meant to facilitate the deportation of Jews to the Far East.
It is important to note—because, once again, the erroneous belief has been created that only Jews were interred—that the concentration camps in Germany were primarily built to house political prisoners prior to the outbreak of the war.
At every camp, where Jews and other nationalities were detained, there were large industrial plants and factories supplying material for the German war-effort–the Buna rubber factory at Bergen-Belsen, for example, Buna and I. G. Farben Industrie at Auschwitz and the electrical firm of Siemens at Ravensbrück.
Below: The old entrance to the Siemens factory at Ravensbruck, idiot in 2011.
In many cases, special concentration camp money notes were issued as payment for labor, enabling prisoners to buy extra rations from camp shops.
The Thereisenstadt settlement—which was certainly not a concentration camp, even though the Holocaust storytellers claim that it was—had specially issued bank notes which can still be found today in the hands of specialist collectors.
Below: Nazi-issued banknotes for use in the Thereisenstadt settlement—called a “Ghetto” by the proponents of the extermination legend. Why would Nazis print up special banknotes for Jews if their intention was actually just to kill them all?
Section 8: Zionists Offered to Fight for the Nazis against the British
Yet another fact which is pertinent to the Six Million story is the reality that late in the course of the war, the leading Zionists in Palestine offered to take up arms against the British in order to facilitate a German victory.
The background to this astonishing—and suppressed—reality lies with the Jewish settlers in Palestine who found the British colonial administration unwilling to accede to the Zionist demand to turn the region into an exclusively Jewish homeland. The British were, of course, well aware of what the potential consequences would be for the existing Arab Palestinian population, and also the aftereffects such a development would have on the rest of the Arab world.
As a result, the Zionists in Palestine launched a terrorist war against the British and Palestinians, with the aim of driving both of these groups out. Many massacres of Palestinians took place (the most famous of which was at Deir Yassin, where hundreds of Arabs were killed by armed Zionist terrorists) and British soldiers were also regularly murdered and attacked.
The leading Zionist terrorist organization was called Lehi, although it is better known as the “Stern Gang,” after its leader Yair Stern. Lehi assassinated Lord Moyne, British Minister Resident in the Middle East and took part in many other incidents, including the Deir Yassin massacre which was carried out in cooperation with another Zionist faction called the Igrun.
In December 1940, Lehi contacted Germany with a proposal to aid German conquest in the Middle East in return for recognition of a Jewish state open to unlimited immigration (Colin Shindler, The Land Beyond Promise: Israel, Likud and the Zionist Dream, 1995, Tauris. p. 22).
Late in 1940, Lehi representative Naftali Lubenchik went to Beirut to meet German official Werner Otto von Hentig (who also was involved with the Haavara or Transfer Agreement, which had been transferring German Jews and their funds to Palestine since 1933).
On the assumption that the destruction of Britain was the Germans’ top objective, the Zionists offered cooperation in the following terms: Lehi would support sabotage and espionage operations in the Middle East and in eastern Europe anywhere where they had cells.
Germany would recognize an independent Jewish state in Palestine, and all Jews leaving their homes in Europe, by their own will or because of government injunctions, could enter Palestine with no restriction of numbers. Stern also proposed to recruit some 40,000 Jews from occupied Europe to invade Palestine with German support to oust the British.
On January 11, 1941, Vice Admiral Ralf von der Marwitz, the German Naval attaché in Turkey, filed a report (the “Ankara document”) conveying an offer by Lehi to “actively take part in the war on Germany’s side” in return for German support for “the establishment of the historic Jewish state on a national and totalitarian basis, bound by a treaty with the German Reich.”
Below: The 1941 covering letter from the German embassy in Ankara, Turkey, to the German foreign office, reporting on the offer by the Zionist Stern Gang to join the war on Germany’s side in return for Nazi support for the creation of a Jewish state in Palestine. The relevant section translates as: “3.) a proposal of the National Military Organization in Palestine regarding the solution of the Jewish question in Europe.”
By then, however, pressing demands of the war had eclipsed German government time, and nothing came of this particular offer. It is however important to note that one of the leaders of Lehi was Yitzhak Shamir, who later became prime minister of Israel. Lehi therefore represented an important and leading element in Zionist thought, and the concept of a Nazi-Zionist alliance in the middle of World War II makes a mockery of the later “extermination” claims.
