  • Indiana Jones Isn’t Wrong—The Nazis’ Fascination With The Occult Was Very Real

    The Federalist ^ | 07/14/2018 | Nathanael Blake
    The Nazi fascination with fantastical science and the occult has long made for spectacular entertainment. From Indiana Jones trying to save the Holy Grail and the Ark of the Covenant from the Nazis, to comic-book super-soldier serums, to the reoccurring use of supernatural charlatanism to dupe the Germans in Hogan’s Heroes, pop culture has propagated the idea of the Nazis as obsessed with mysticism and mad science. And pop historians have eagerly provided background for these tales.How much of it is true?Quite a lot, it turns out. Recently released in paperback by Yale University Press, Eric Kurlander’s book Hitler’s...
  • How the woman who identified Hitler’s dental remains ended up in prison

    Berlin’s ruins still smoldered as three Soviet military intelligence officers questioned a tall, lithe blonde in 1945. A Red Army lieutenant, the group’s translator, opened the burgundy satin cover of a cheap jewelry box and showed her its contents. Nestled inside were charred human teeth, gold dental crowns and a complete lower jaw. “I took the dental bridge in my hand,” Käthe Heusermann wrote decades later. “I looked for an unmistakable sign. I found it immediately, took a deep breath and blurted out, ‘These are the teeth of Adolf Hitler.’ I was showered with expressions of gratitude.” Within weeks, Heusermann...
  • Poland Changes its Controversial Holocaust Law

    Jerusalem Post ^ | June 2018 | Herb Keinon, Jeremy Sharon
    Poland has amended its controversial Holocaust law that made it a crime punishable by up to three years in jail to say “Polish concentration camps,” four months after the law went into effect. Polish lawmakers voted on Wednesday by a vote of 388-25, with five abstentions. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he is pleased that Poland “fully rescinded” clauses in its Holocaust law. “I’m pleased that the Polish government, the parliament, the senate and the president of Poland decided today to fully rescind the clauses that were signed and caused a storm and consternation in Israel and among the international...
  • June 30, 1934: the Night of the Long Knives, Hitler's purge of those standing in his way

    The Night of the Long Knives was a purge that took place in Nazi Germany from June 30 to July 2, 1934, when the Nazi regime carried out a series of political murders. When Hitler rose to power in early 1933, he owed much of his success to the muscle of his Nazi Storm Troopers, the SA, a violent, ruthless army headed by Ernst Röhm, Hitler’s long-time friend. Röhm and his Storm Troopers brought Germany into submission by gaining control of the streets gangster-style and violently eliminating Hitler’s political enemies. However, a threatening, revolutionary force was no longer useful now...
  • How a victorious Bashar al-Assad is changing Syria

    A NEW Syria is emerging from the rubble of war. In Homs, which Syrians once dubbed the “capital of the revolution” against President Bashar al-Assad, the Muslim quarter and commercial district still lie in ruins, but the Christian quarter is reviving. Churches have been lavishly restored; a large crucifix hangs over the main street. “Groom of Heaven”, proclaims a billboard featuring a photo of a Christian soldier killed in the seven-year conflict. In their sermons, Orthodox patriarchs praise Mr Assad for saving one of the world’s oldest Christian communities.

    It's time to address the “Nazi, Hitler, Holocaust issue.” I’m a Jew. It’s time to stand up to these mentally disturbed, liberal bullies, frauds and exaggerators. Nothing compares to the Nazis. Nothing is the Holocaust. No one is Hitler. Stop using those words, you frauds. Do you know how ridiculous you sound? You’re destroying the meaning of such powerful words. “Never forget” will soon be forgotten, because you’ve trivialized the meaning of the words “Nazi, Hitler and Holocaust.” There is no comparison in this modern word to those horrible words and deeds (except for radical Islamic terrorism- which Democrats don’t...

    Seriously, the Democrat party should embrace this guy as their poster child candidate. ======================================= He believes in instituting a patriarchal system, with women under the authority of men; he supports abolishing age restrictions for marriage and laws against marital rape; he believes that white supremacy is a “system that works,” that Hitler was a “good thing for Germany,” and that incest should be legalized, at least in the context of marriage. And at one point in a conversation with The Post, he seemed to express admiration for the system run by the Taliban in Afghanistan, noting that the country’s birthrate...

    Meghan McCain slammed President Trump on Tuesday for his "buddy-buddy" meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, whom she denounced as a "dictator." The cohost of ABC’s “The View” and daughter of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said that, though she was initially on board with the summit, she was disturbed by the symbolism of both nations’ flags flying together in Singapore. “This is a totalitarian communist dictator in the same vein as Hitler — murder, enslavement, imprisonment, sexual violence, starvation, forced abortions, political, racial, religious persecution,” McCain said. “We are not the same,” she continued. “[Kim’s North Korea] is...

  • Tests on skull fragment cast doubt on Adolf Hitler suicide story

    Bone with bullet hole found by Russians in 1946 came from an unknown woman, not the German leader Tests on skull fragment cast doubt on Adolf Hitler suicide In countless biographies of Adolf Hitler the story of his final hours is recounted in the traditional version: committing suicide with Eva Braun, he took a cyanide pill and then shot himself on 30 April 1945, as the Russians bombarded Berlin. Some historians expressed doubt that the Führer had shot himself, speculating that accounts of Hitler's death had been embellished to present his suicide in a suitably heroic light. But a fragment...

    French researchers claim to have put an end to conspiracy theories surrounding the death of Adolf Hitler, after a study of his teeth proved he definitely died after taking cyanide and shooting himself in the head in Berlin in 1945. The researchers reached their conclusion after they were given rare access to fragments of Hitler’s teeth which have been held in Moscow since the end of World War II. "The teeth are authentic, there is no possible doubt. Our study proves that Hitler died in 1945," said professor Philippe Charlier. "We can stop all the conspiracy theories about Hitler. He...

    Liberals can go marching at the drop of a hat over any causes they feel are going to make them feel better about themselves at the time - even if they don’t have a grasp of the public policy issue which is the central purpose for that particular march. In this case, The Left was marching against the Left. Yes, liberals have been trying their darnedest to hang the Nazis on the Right since Hitler murdered six million Jews. But they were the National Socialist German Worker’s Party. But the Left always wants to rewrite history to make it in...

    Pinal County Sheriff's Office says an electronic road sign showed an offensive message overnight in San Tan Valley. Several ABC15 viewers reached out Friday morning regarding a road sign along Hunt Highway that said "Hail Hitler". According to PCSO, the department first received a call about the sign around 2:30 a.m. A private company reportedly owns the sign and Pinal County officials say they were unable to reach the company for help at that time. They also reached out to Pinal County's public works department for help, but they too were unable to turn off the sign. Crews eventually covered...

    Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) said President Trump’s White House is “full of white supremacists” in a new interview Friday. “The White House itself is full of white supremacists,” she told The New York Times. It is the latest response in a four-day controversy over Trump's response to military families who have lost a loved one. Wilson earlier this week described a phone conversation she was listening in on between Trump and the widow of Army Sgt. La David Johnson, who was killed in Niger. The White House later accused Wilson of politicizing a "sacred" issue. Wilson's interview is not the...

    More than one-fifth of millennials in the U.S. -- 22 percent -- haven't heard of, or aren't sure if they've heard of, the Holocaust, according to a study published Thursday, on Israel's Holocaust Remembrance Day. The study, which was commissioned by The Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany and conducted by Schoen Consulting, also found that 11 percent of U.S. adults overall haven't heard of the Holocaust or aren't sure if they did. Additionally, 41 percent of millennials believe two million Jews or fewer were killed during the Holocaust, the study found. Six million Jews were killed in World...
  • A Nazi Easter Ceremony for 1944

    03/30/2018 10:29:35 AM PDT · by GoldenState_Rose · 9 replies
    The Nazis developed an elaborate system of rituals and ceremonies. Their most powerful competitor in this regard was the Church, which the Nazi Party fought hard to displace. One way to do that was to take over Church festivals, giving them new content. This is an example of a speech to be given by party leaders at Easter ceremonies in 1944. As the introduction puts it: “We Germans celebrate Easter as a festival of spring, which has been passed down to us for millennia from the mists of German time.” There is no mention of Christianity. Life can never perish...

    A satirical video that overdubs fiery rhetoric of Adolf Hitler (in German) over a speech given by student activist David Hogg at Saturday's "March for our Lives" in Washington has earned it a warning to would-be viewers on YouTube. The video channel, owned by Google, flagged the 56-second send-up of the gun control advocate -- who shot to fame following his reporting and commentary at the Parkland, Fla. school shootings -- as "inappropriate" or "offensive." Viewers attempting to watch the video were met with the following message, and then had to click "I understand and wish to proceed" in order...

    Today’s gun control and confiscation rally was nothing new. Nazis and leftists have been using children for decades in their attempts to take guns away from law abiding citizens. Here’s a history lesson for young adults in America – Hitler’s regime took away guns from people in Germany and then herded those they did not like into boxcars and shipped them to concentration camps where they were enslaved, beaten, raped and murdered. The victims didn’t fire a shot in self-defense because their guns were taken away. Hitler said – “These boys and girls enter our organizations [at] ten years of...
  • Russia Feared Hitler's Panzer Tanks. But They Might Have Feared Who Led Them Even More.

    The wide tracks of Soviet T-34S and colossal KV-1S crunched through the snow. Night had fallen west of Belgorod on March 15, 1943. The Soviet tank column was headed toward a village, looking for shelter for the night. Although the village appeared deserted, the Soviet commander was wary. For days now there had been heavy fighting, with the Nazis trying to recapture Kharkov from the Soviets. The T-34s fired incendiary shells, setting ablaze a few peasant huts. When nothing moved, the tanks rumbled into the village. The commander’s tank came to halt, unaware that the muzzle of a Tiger tank...

    Difficult as it is to fathom, given most people's conception of dictatorship, most Germans appear to have led happy, productive, even normal lives in the Third Reich. This indicates that a dictatorship can enjoy widespread popularity among the majority even while committing unspeakable crimes against minorities and others. The horrors of the Nazi regime and the Holocaust still present some of the most disturbing questions in modern history: Why did Hitler’s party appeal to millions of Germans, and how entrenched was anti- Semitism among the population? How could anyone claim, after the war, that the genocide of Europe’s Jews was...
