Timewatch: Himmler, Hitler and the End of the Third Reich

I was going to do an intro but I found the  introduction below on youtube which is so thorough, that anything else from me would be superfluous.  I will add though that in the second video you get a good idea was as to why Germany was ultimately doomed due to Hitler’s rigidity of military strategy. In February 1943 after the surrender of the 6th Army at Stalingrad, the German S.S. Panzer Corps. composed of the three  panzer grenadier divisions Leibstandarte S.S. Adolf Hitler, Das Reich, and Totenkopf,  (superbly equipped, trained, motivated and lead, and arguably man for man the best soldiers of World War II) was  about to be trapped in the Ukrainian city of Kharkov.  Their commander, S.S. General Paul Hausser asked for permission to withdraw out of the certain entrapment but Hitler forbade it demanding that they hold fast (a decision which would have annihilated them).  Hausser decided to disobey the order and had his men withdraw  (if he had been a Wehrmacht instead of an S.S. general he might have been courtmartialed) and successfully made it  out to safety. Having done so, the German commander of Army Group South Field Marshal Erich von Manstein (the most talented commander in World War II – Europe)  regrouped and  launched a counter attack on the overextended Soviet advance and defeated the Red Army while the S.S. Panzer Corps recaptured Kharkov (“The Third Battle of Kharkov, Feb. 19 – March 15, 1943“) – the last major Soviet victory on the Eastern Front.  Manstein felt that the days of rigid “hold fast”  strategies were outdated and suicidal and that the Germans needed defensive /offensive flexibility i.e. freedom of maneuver,  to make the Soviets outrun their supplies and then hit them on their flanks.  Fortunately for the Soviets and the Western Allies, Hitler’s refusal to cede any ground ultimately doomed Germany.

The post accompanying this video (written by someone else) on youtube:

By the spring of 1945, Himmler had lost faith in German victory. He came to the realization that if the Nazi regime was to have any chance of survival, it would need to seek peace with Britain and the United States. Toward this end, he contacted Count Folke Bernadotte of Sweden at Lübeck, near the Danish border, and began negotiations.
When Hitler discovered this, Himmler was declared a traitor and stripped of all his titles and ranks the day before Hitler committed suicide. Hitler’s successor as Chancellor of Germany was Joseph Goebbels. At the time of Himmler’s denunciation, he held the positions of Commanding General of the SS, Chief of the German Police, Realm Commissioner of German Nationhood, Realm Minister of the Interior, Supreme Commander of the People’s Storm (Volkssturm), and Supreme Commander of the Home Army.
Unfortunately for Himmler, his negotiations with Count Bernadotte failed. Since he could not return to Berlin, he joined Grand Admiral Karl Dönitz, who by then was commanding all the German forces within the northern part of the western front, in nearby Plön. Dönitz immediately sent Himmler away, explaining that there was no place for him in the German government.
Himmler next turned to the Americans as a defector, contacting the headquarters of General Dwight Eisenhower and proclaiming he would surrender all of Germany to the Allies if he was spared from prosecution as a Nazi leader. Eisenhower refused to have anything to do with Himmler, who was subsequently declared a major war criminal.
Unwanted by his former colleagues and hunted by the Allies, Himmler wandered for several days near the Danish border, around Flensburg, the capital of the Dönitz government. Attempting to evade arrest, he disguised himself as a sergeant-major of the Secret Military Police, using the name Heinrich Hitzinger, shaving his mustache and donning an eye patch over his left eye, in the hope that he could return to Bavaria. He had equipped himself with a full set of false documents, but someone whose papers were wholly “in order” was so unusual that it aroused the suspicions of a British Army unit in Bremen. He was arrested on May 22, and, in captivity, was soon recognized.
Himmler was scheduled to stand trial with other German leaders as a major war criminal at Nuremberg, but committed suicide in Lüneburg by swallowing a potassium cyanide capsule before interrogation could begin. His last words were “Ich bin Heinrich Himmler!” (“I am Heinrich Himmler!”). Shortly afterward, Himmler’s body was secretly buried in an unmarked grave on the Lüneburg Heath. The precise location of Himmler’s grave remains unknown.

    Hitler’s successor, Grand Admiral Karl Doenitz also labored under the illusion of a separate peace with the West. The Nazis did not realize that they were loathed by both East and West. The Soviets certainly wanted revenge for all the Nazi war crimes committed on their territory and nothing but unconditional surrender would do.

    Hitler was not opposed (starting in 1943) to a separate peace with either the British/Americans or with Stalin. However he did not want to propose one until he had won a massive victory somewhere – something that he was no longer capable of achieving. He wanted to negotiate from a position of strength.

    Both Himmler and Goering were expelled from the Nazi Party by Hitler in April 1945. Himmler after word of his secret talks with Bernadotte were leaked, Goering after he had sent Hitler a telegram asking to be able to take over from him (Hitler) since he was isolated in Berlin.

    Well, I’d say at the beginning of the Progressive era about 100 years ago when the Communists and their sympathizers began their strategy of affecting change via academia, culture, organized labor and “group” movement politics and organizing.

    /rhetorical

    How do we fix this? I used to think Fox News was a start, but not so much anymore. I know the blogs are making a small impact, but (IMO) not enough.

    Himmler had a daughter, Gudren, who I believe is still alive and an unreconstructed Nazi.

    This film glosses over Himmler’s stay in the hospital for ‘a cold’. He was hiding out/running away.

    Albert Speer did the same thing but for different reasons, I think. Himmler hid out when he was given command of an Army and knew he was incompetent. Speer hid out when he finally figured out what was going on with the Jews.

    We’re starting from an even bigger disadvantage due to the fact the GOP has pretty much ignored the problem, or in many cases went along with it.

    No matter how loud we can be on the Right whether it be in the blogosphere, at the voting booth, or at rallies, we’ll never advance unless we can get a viable political party that’s willing to admit the size and scope of the problem without being skeered of the media or Democrats calling them “sensational” and “outrageous.” Then a clear message needs to be communicated by whatever means necessary.

    The Left has messaging and propaganda down to a science, while the GOP seems content to delude themselves into thinking that the American public will research issues on their own and reasonably conclude that the Conservative argument is stronger.

    A big difference back in the old days the press was open and honest about its bias and point of view. Today’s Big Lie is that the main stream media is fair and impartial; both false claims.

    I’ve always been a news hound,read 2 newspapers per day and never missed the 5PM news. I was a dedicated Peter Jennings/ABC guy until the 2000 election when I discovered Fox News and the expanding blogosphere. Up until Fox and the blogosphere, ABC, CBS, NBC and CNN had a monopoly on broadcast news. At any rate, in 2000 I realized that Pete and his other media cohorts had been lying to me for as long as I had been watching them. The print media was/is every bit as bad and they no longer get a dime of my money. The new media is making a difference and it’s a thorn in Obammy’s ass. I firmly believe that the internet played a major role in bringing down the Soviet Union. The free dissemination of news, information and truth is a killer for totalitarians.

    @ Dolphin:

    What’s happened with Fox is a very good example, IMHO, of what’s happened in general.

    The Left talks as though they are correct in all matters, and any dissenting view from their secular, globalist, Marxist utopia is branded as “extreme.”

    FNC deliberately moved Left in order to placate the disciples of this worldview to appear more moderate, and they did it because they care about the opinions of a few movers and shakers and are AFRAID to be viewed as “extreme.”

It was based on the the reputation and honesty of the reporter that sold the story (well that the paper bought the story from the independent news person) – maybe I just answered my own question, maybe there should not be reporters who are employed by the media, they should be independent and paid accordingly so.

    That is my point. What changed and why?

    What changed was the publication of a little book called “Das Kaptial” published in 1867 in Germany. Then the next significant change was Joseph Goebbels. The advocates of Marxism began to infiltrate America’s educational system in the late 1800′s and early 1900′s.

    When those early Marxist’s in America saw the profound affect that Joseph Goebbels Ministry of Propaganda had on the German people they made the decision to branch out into the media, first Hollyweird, then the various schools of Journalism like Columbia and Annenberg.

    Joseph Goebbels taught them that what they were already doing a few students at a time in the Universities across America could also be done on a massive scale through Movies and Television and print publications. That my dear Dolphin is what changed.

    Senator Joesph McCarthy was 100 percent right about them, sadly on a personal note, he was also a bit of an asshole. Worse yet, they had already by the time McCarthy became aware of them, infiltrated academia, the legal system, politics and the media to perhaps a hundred time greater degree than even he suspected.

    When he attempted to expose them they responded from directions and places he was 100 percent unprepared for. Their hit job/character assignation of him was so successful that even today most Americans believe the lies and misinformation written about him. By the early 50′s nearly a full quarter of the American Fourth Estate were already members of the Fifth Column Treasonous Media. Right now it’s closer to 80 percent with nearly 60 percent being so brainwashed that they are constitutionally and intellectually incapable of the personal honesty required to even understand that they are TREASONOUS BASTARDS.

    Hoodie Day Tomorrow!

    Some Pittsburgh schools to hold ‘Hoodie Day’

    Several Pittsburgh public schools today will honor the teenage victim of a controversial Florida shooting with students wearing hooded sweatshirts, which are rapidly becoming a symbol of protest against authorities’ handling of the boy’s death.

    The schools, including Pittsburgh Stevens K-8 in Elliot, Pittsburgh Colfax K-8 in Squirrel Hill and the Creative and Performing Arts high school, Downtown, will have “Hoodie Day” in response to the Feb. 26 death of Trayvon Martin, 17, said schools spokeswoman Ebony Pugh. Students will be allowed to wear hooded shirts and sweatshirts, similar to what Martin was wearing when he died.

    “The students asked principals if they could do this, and anytime students want to organize and use their voices, we support that,” Pugh said. CAPA and Colfax students will be allowed to wear hoodies, and students at Pittsburgh Stevens will hold a march. Students can choose whether to participate, Pugh said.

    Beck has said some really nutty things since leaving Fox and seems to have become almost a Paulian. His time has come and gone. He was better on Fox although at times he acted as if he was on the verge of a breakdown.

Chuikov told him to fuck off. After that he committed suicide and took his wife and 6 children with him.

    If you are masochistic enough to force yourself to watch them, their are documentaries out there about them.

    Films
    Main articles: Nazism and cinema and List of German films 1933-1945

    The Nazis produced many films to promote their views. Themes included the virtues of the Nordic or Aryan type, German military and industrial strength, and the evils of the Nazi enemies. On March 13, 1933, The Third Reich established a Ministry of Propaganda, appointing Joseph Goebbels as its Minister. On September 22, 1933, a Department of Film was incorporated into the Chamber of Culture. The department controlled the licensing of every film prior to its production. Sometimes, the government would select the actors for a film, financing the production partially or totally, and would grant tax breaks to the producers. Awards for “valuable” films would decrease taxes, thus encouraging self-censorship among movie makers.[42]

    Under Goebbels and Hitler, the German film industry became entirely nationalised. The National Socialist Propaganda Directorate, which Goebbels oversaw, had at its disposal nearly all film agencies in Germany by 1936. Occasionally, certain directors such as Wolfgang Liebeneiner were able to bypass Goebbels by providing him with a different version of the film than would be released. Such films include those directed by Helmut Käutner: Romanze in Moll (Romance in a Minor Key, 1943), Große Freiheit Nr. 7 (The Great Freedom, No. 7, 1944), and Unter den Brücken (Under the Bridges, 1945).

    Schools were also provided with motion pictures projectors because film was regarded as particularly appropriate for propagandizing children.[43] Films specifically created for schools were termed “military education.”[43]

    Newsreels were explicitly intended to not be the truth, but to portray such of the truth as was in the interest of Germany to spread.[44]

    Triumph des Willens (Triumph of the Will, 1934) by film-maker Leni Riefenstahl chronicles the Nazi Party Congress in Nuremberg. It features footage of uniformed party members (though relatively few German soldiers), who are marching and drilling to classical melodies. The film contains excerpts from speeches given by various Nazi leaders at the Congress, including speeches by Adolf Hitler. Frank Capra used scenes from the film, which he described partially as “the ominous prelude of Hitler’s holocaust of hate” in many parts of the U.S. government’s Why We Fight anti-Axis seven film series, to demonstrate what the personnel of the American military would be facing in World War II, and why the Axis had to be defeated.

    Der ewige Jude (The Eternal Jew, 1940) was directed by Fritz Hippler at the insistence of Goebbels, though the writing is credited to Eberhard Taubert. The movie is done in the style of a documentary, the central thesis being the immutable racial personality traits that characterize the Jew as a wandering cultural parasite. Throughout the film, these traits are contrasted to the Nazi state ideal: while Aryan men find satisfaction in physical labour and the creation of value, Jews only find pleasure in money and a hedonist lifestyle.

    My teenage son would get ‘in-school suspensions’ for wearing his hood up in class. The classes are FREEZING with the air-conditioners set so low. This is because of ‘modern’ school designs that dictate year round climate conditioning. No more open the windows for fresh air.

    Anyway, lately, there’s not a peep of protest from faculty about the students with their hoods up in class.

    This is the only thing positive I can say about this ‘hoodies’ controversy.
