Farewell to the Soldier Who Found Hitler's Will
Arutz Sheva ^ | 1-2-11 | Chana Ya'ar

Posted on 01/02/2011 7:31:40 AM PST by SJackson

The Jewish U.S. soldier who was instrumental in finding Adolf Hitler's last will and testament during World War II has died at the age of 86.

Arnold Hans Weiss – born Hans Arnold Wangersheim – a banker and attorney who lived in Chevy Chase, Maryland, died of pneumonia. His wife predeceased him in 2005; he is survived by two sons and three grandchildren.

Weiss played a pivotal role in the final days of the war as a member of a counter-intelligence unit. Together with a British intelligence officer and historian, and a second U.S. intelligence agent, Weiss helped track down SS Standartenfuhrer Wilhelm Zander, chief aide to Martin Bormann. It was Bormann who had controlled access to Hitler.

After finding Zander posing as a gardener at a Bavarian farmhouse, Weiss translated as the team questioned him until he finally broke down, revealing his identity. Zander described Hitler's last days in the bunker and the fate of other Nazi officials as well.

At last, he said, “I suppose you want the documents.” He revealed that Hitler's last will and testament, as well as the certificate of his deathbed marriage to Eva Braun, were stored in a hidden compartment of a suitcase.

Fear not, my FRiend. All will eventually be revealed, and then it will be a great shame and humiliation for those who supported this present darkness.
For whatever reason people supported him, either ideological, racial, guilt, or deception, it is on Their Heads when they realize how they have been deceived.

Meanwhile, Our Job is to continue shining the LIGHT, until it all comes together.

RIP to another of MY HEROES.

Many of America’s Greatest Generation of which my father was a member lie in graves today. They fought against the savage dictatorships of Hitler, Mussolini, and the evil in Japan. In my opinion, there is evil every bit as heinous within our government. Their policies and actions are designed to undermine our Constitution and to steal our freedom. Their end game will destroy our children and grandchildren’s future. Like our fathers and grandfathers, who fought evil, it is up to us to continue their fight. We The People/Tea Party must stay organized, stay informed, and ensure that we vote these Arrogant, Amoral, Corrupt Elitists out of office in 2012, 2014, and 2016. We will preserve our country and our freedom in honor of all the American heroes that came before us. We can do no less.

No doubt about it!!! The mantra of Hitler, Stalin & Mussolini is alive and well in the Obama/Democrat mind, heart & soul. The American people just don’t get it. Maybe a little viewing of the History & Military cable channels will clear the fog out of their brains. Cause, the present prize and pride of the Nazi’s resides in the White House!!! And......that’s a fact!!!

Unfortunately all they will get from the History Channel now-a-days are the history's of the potato chip and Hitler's secret flying saucer base at the North Pole.

What you say is very accurate and worth repeating.

Glad you did not include the military channel in your response. These last few weeks, along with the WWII campaigns, they have stressed how effectively “Big Brother” ruling tactics were foisted on the German people. Exactly the same tactics Obama and his minions used to get their agenda passed. Of course, in the end, the rule of brutality fell and these evil people were done away with, prisoned or otherwise destroyed. Most dictators, and Obama is one of them, come to not so comfortable ends. This dude is a lightweight and will disappear as quickly as a candle flame is blown out. IMHO, the majority of the American people have his number. Come 2012, he and his America hating wife takes a hike back to Chicago and disappears forever into the obscurity he and she so richly deserve.

God bless you for stating what needs to be imprinted upon the minds of all voters in the days, weeks, months and years ahead of us. May God help us survive the socialist regime now in power that is systematically dismantling the American way of life and the US monetary system.

Or the NPR propaganda talking heads and shows spewing global warming hoax fears and promoting/protecting Islam. No wonder so many people unplugged their TVs for good.

Amen to your post #9.

May G-d grant us the strength to do what is right in our time.

The Greatest Generation is passing. They have thrown the torch of freedom to us. We dare not let it fall.

Thanks SJackson.

Consider this WWII topic a highly unusual ping for the GGG list, and I do apologize for the bandwidth. Ordinarily I would just add it to the catalog.
  • Adolf Hitler's Last Will
    ...It is untrue that I or anybody else in Germany wanted war in 1939. It was desired and instigated exclusively by those international statesmen who were either of Jewish origin or working for Jewish interests. I have made so many offers for the reduction and elimination of armaments, which posterity cannot explain away for all eternity, that the responsibility for the outbreak of this war cannot rest on me. Furthermore, I never desired that after the first terrible World War a second war should arise against England or even against America. Centuries may pass, but out of the ruins of our cities and monuments of art there will arise anew the hatred for the people who alone are ultimately responsible: International Jewry and its helpers!
To all -- please ping me to other topics which are appropriate for the GGG list.

Wow, if Hitler really believed that nonsense that he didn’t start the war he must have been truly psychotic.

As Michael Savage says, “the enemy is within.” Our elected leaders are supposed to protect from all enemies, foreign and domestic. Hopefully it’s not too late because the enemy has infiltrated every facet of our society like a cancer which has spread from our schools all the way to the oval office.
