But have you heard about the millions of German men, women and children starved to death by America at the end of WWII?

The following bit of history made me vomit in my mouth. This is the first I have ever heard of this.


"I hold in my hands absolutely authentic photographs which have been taken at the beginning of the winter in the city of Berlin. These photographs are interchangeable for horror with the photographs with which we became familiar from Dachau, Mauthausen, Buchenwald, and other extermination camps. These are photographs of children between the ages of 5 and 14…"


Here’s something the fascist swine you call public school history teachers don’t cover in their communist indoctrination classes:



Throughout all of 1945 the Allies forces of occupation ensured that no international aid reached ethnic Germans. [9] It was directed that all relief went to non-German displaced persons, liberated Allied POWs, and concentration camp inmates.[10]
...
During 1945 it was estimated that the average German civilian in the U.S. and the United Kingdom occupation zones received 1,200 calories a day.[13] Meanwhile non-German Displaced Persons were receiving 2,300 calories through emergency food imports and Red Cross help.[14] In early October 1945 the UK government privately acknowledged in a cabinet meeting that German civilian adult death rates had risen to four times the pre-war levels and death rates amongst the German children had risen by 10 times the pre-war levels. [13]

General Lucius Clay stated in October 1945 that:

“undoubtedly a large number of refugees have already died of starvation, exposure and disease…. The death rate in many places has increased several fold, and infant mortality is approaching 65 percent in many places. By the spring of 1946, German observers expect that epidemics and malnutrition will claim 2.5 to 3 million victims between the Oder and Elbe.[13]"

U.S. occupation forces were under strict orders not to share their food with the German population, and this also applied to their wives when they arrived later in the occupation. The women were under orders not to allow their German maids to get hold of any leftovers; “the food was to be destroyed or made inedible”, although in view of the starving German population facing them many housewives chose to disregard these official orders.[15] Nevertheless, according to a U.S. intelligence survey a German university professor reportedly said: “Your soldiers are good-natured, good ambassadors; but they create unnecessary ill will to pour twenty litres of left-over cocoa in the gutter when it is badly needed in our clinics. It makes it hard for me to defend American democracy amongst my countrymen.”[16]

In January 1946, 34 U.S. Senators petitioned that private relief organizations be allowed to help in Germany and Austria, stating that the desperate food situation in occupied Germany: “presents a picture of such frightful horror as to stagger the imagination, evidence which increasingly marks the United States as an accomplice in a terrible crime against humanity.”[17]

....

Criticism of the situation increased, Senator William Langer stated in a speech in the United States Congress:

“ …among the crimes with which this (Nazi) leadership has been charged (at Nuremberg) is the crime of systematic and mass starvation of racial or political minorities or opponents…. Yet to our utter horror, we discover that our own policies have merely spread those same conditions…I hold in my hands absolutely authentic photographs which have been taken at the beginning of the winter in the city of Berlin. These photographs are interchangeable for horror with the photographs with which we became familiar from Dachau, Mauthausen, Buchenwald, and other extermination camps. These are photographs of children between the ages of 5 and 14…[18]



In June 1946 a relief worker described the situation encountered in Germany thus:


Starvation is not the dramatic thing one so often reads and imagines... of people in mobs crying for food and falling over in the streets. The starving... those who are dying never say anything and one rarely sees them. They first become listless and weak, they react quickly to cold and chills, they sit staring in their rooms or lie listlessly in their beds... one day they just die. The doctor usually diagnoses malnutrition and complications resulting therefrom. Old women and kids usually die first because they are weak and are unable to get out and scrounge for the extra food it takes to live. It is pretty hard for an American who has lacked enough food to become ravenously hungry perhaps only once or twice in a lifetime to understand what real starvation is.[3]


Not only am I outraged at what my country did to these people, I am outraged that this is the first time in my 34 years of life that I have heard about this being done to the German people.

This is so disgusting I am at a loss for words.

Have a gander at what this ass-clown proposed; here's the Morgenthau Plan. This guy wanted to wipe out 25,000,000 civilians. Is it sheer coincidence that he was a banker? I think not.

Hey, but I’m not done yet. I bet you didn’t know we forced all men, women, and children above the age of 14 in the entire American sector of Germany in to forced labor either.

I bet you also didn’t know we sent hundreds of thousands of German POWs to their deaths in forced labor camps either.

1,300,000 Allied controlled German POWs are listed as missing.

How the *snip* do you loose a million people.

Tell me how.

My father's cousin was in one of those camps. That kinda stuff didn't get talked about much afterwards.

The US government is an organization of criminal looting genocidal thieves.

They have been this way since the inception of the federal reserve.

The US government has no redeeming qualities left at all.

It is run by genocidal maniacs.

How does such atrocity escape the US history books?

How can it be that I am 34 years old and have never heard this before?

How can this be?

Some one tell me.

Quite frankly, it's been a rumour and a dirty little secret and if not for the ubiquity of the internet, it likely would have remained so.

I am familiar with the homicidal bombing of Dresden conducted by our criminal government, which wiped out 25,000 civilians and destroyed 75,000 homes, but the criminals teaching our history classes can gloss over that one as a consequence of war.

This however is totally unconscionable.

Millions needlessly killed.

Millions of children killed at the hands of the criminal US government.

Millions of German citizens enslaved.

Millions of German POWs outright slaughtered and enslaved.

Everyone talks trash about my beloved Deutchland (ancestral home).

WW1 and 2 were engineered to destroy the powerhouse and people that were Germany.

The pathetic French had much to do with it.

Had the squable that started over french fear been left alone, hundreds of thousands (millions?) of lives would have been saved.

Nope. Thats not the way it was wanted to play out.

Everybody and their brother jumped into the dogpile. Versailles Treaty was made. Hitler was created.

Making the seeds for the next go round.

This is a case where the USA, Britain, and FRANCE were definately at fault.

Franz Ferd and the Serb was BS.

I am American but this was something we shouldnt have been in. Lusitania? Legit target (as was the gaza crap) as it was carrying munitions.

"Oh, the poor civilians that died. Damn those Huns".

Yeah. Put collateral in the way of war and you have an easy leverage.

Wilson was a good NWO employee.

sanf


edit to add.

this is also part of the attack on Germanics as a race. We as a people are not ones to bow (ask the Romans).

Thats why they are brainwashing our kids with multiculturalism and self-hatred. I met a couple of young men on a soccer pitch a few months ago. Didnt take long to figure out they were kinsmen from the Fatherland.

I said "Hey brothers, where are yall from?" Almost sheepishly, they said "Germany". I replied, "Well, yall are almost home men. Texas is full of us". They looked like they were embarased.

the mind control is starting to take effect.

In 1946 General Clay ordered the registration in the American zone of Germany of all persons capable of work between the age of 14 to 65 for men and 15 to 50 for women. 'All persons incapable of work because of illness, disability, etc., must present to the labor office proof of incapacity. the labor office is empowered to direct compulsory labor when necessary.' Under Allied Control Law No. 3 of February 17, 1946, German males from fourteen to sixty five and women from fifteen to fifty were subject to compulsory labor; the penalty for disobedience was imprisonment and having their ration cards taken away, a penalty that the International Military Tribunal declared inhuman when it was inflicted by the Germans."

Quite easy, you lose the paperwork, lost in the shuffle.

The same way corporations like I.B.M. are still in business today.

Tell me you have heard about I.B.M. assisting Hitler in tracking down the Jews?

IBM and the Holocaust: The Strategic Alliance Between Nazi Germany and America's Most Powerful Corporation




Amazon Review :

Was IBM, "The Solutions Company," partly responsible for the Final Solution?

That's the question raised by Edwin Black's IBM and the Holocaust, the most controversial book on the subject since Daniel Jonah Goldhagen's Hitler's Willing Executioners.

Black, a son of Holocaust survivors, is less tendentiously simplistic than Goldhagen, but his thesis is no less provocative: he argues that IBM founder Thomas Watson deserved the Merit Cross (Germany's second-highest honor) awarded him by Hitler, his second-biggest customer on earth.

"IBM, primarily through its German subsidiary, made Hitler's program of Jewish destruction a technologic mission the company pursued with chilling success," writes Black.

"IBM had almost single-handedly brought modern warfare into the information age [and] virtually put the 'blitz' in the krieg."

The crucial technology was a precursor to the computer, the IBM Hollerith punch card machine, which Black glimpsed on exhibit at the U.S. Holocaust Museum, inspiring his five-year, top-secret book project.

The Hollerith was used to tabulate and alphabetize census data. Black says the Hollerith and its punch card data ("hole 3 signified homosexual ... hole 8 designated a Jew") was indispensable in rounding up prisoners, keeping the trains fully packed and on time, tallying the deaths, and organizing the entire war effort.

Hitler's regime was fantastically, suicidally chaotic; could IBM have been the cause of its sole competence: mass-murdering civilians?

Better scholars than I must sift through and appraise Black's mountainous evidence, but clearly the assessment is overdue.

The moral argument turns on one question: How much did IBM New York know about IBM Germany's work, and when?

Black documents a scary game of brinksmanship orchestrated by IBM chief Watson, who walked a fine line between enraging U.S. officials and infuriating Hitler.

He shamefully delayed returning the Nazi medal until forced to--and when he did return it, the Nazis almost kicked IBM and its crucial machines out of Germany.

(Hitler was prone to self-defeating decisions, as demonstrated in How Hitler Could Have Won World War II.)

Black has created a must-read work of history.

But it's also a fascinating business book examining the colliding influences of personality, morality, and cold strategic calculation.

Edwin Black : IBM and the Holocaust


Amazing, isn't it, that corporations like I.B.M. remain untouched?


Quote from : Wikipedia : I.B.M. and the Holocaust : I.B.M.'s Response

IBM has not directly contradicted any of the evidence in the book or the many documentaries, but instead has questioned Black's research and methodology.

IBM has also not disputed Black's allegations.

IBM and the Holocaust has been featured in many news articles, magazine stories, TV shows and documentaries, with virtually no rebuttal from IBM.

IBM claimed it does not have much information about this period or the operations of Dehomag, and most documents were destroyed or lost during the war.

IBM also claimed a (dismissed) lawsuit was filed to coincide with the book launch.

In 2002, IBM dismissed Edwin Black's claim that IBM is withholding materials regarding this era in its archives.

Nevertheless, IBM had turned over its corporate records of the period several years ago to academic archives in New York and Stuttgart, Germany, for review by independent scholars.


The same corporation which is now pushing the R.F.I.D. chip program.

The same corporation which assisted Hitler as it assisted America.

Through the Census Program.



IBM RFID Commercial - The Future Market


The same corporation which is tied to organizations like Destron Fearing.


Quote from : Destron Fearing Website

Destron Fearing is a global leader in innovative animal identification.

With presence in over 40 countries worldwide we seek to provide real world ID solutions to match the ever increasing complexity and opportunities related to animal identification.

Since 1945 we have provided innovative products addressing the needs of livestock producers, companion animal owners, horse owners, wildlife managers and government agencies.

Destron Fearing provides a full complement of radio frequency identification products and software solutions to automate the collection of critical livestock production and carcass information.

Individual and herd information can then be easily transferred between all parties involved in the production and retail of meat products. Information sharing allows the food industry to meet the discriminating demands of the market place.


I sure wonder why the Trading with the Enemy Act was never used.


Quote from : Wikipedia : Trading with the Enemy Act

The Trading with the Enemy Act, sometimes abbreviated as TWEA, is a United States federal law, 12 U.S.C. § 95a, enacted in 1917 to restrict trade with countries hostile to the United States.

The law gives the President the power to oversee or restrict any and all trade between the U.S. and her enemies in times of war.

In 1933 President Franklin D. Roosevelt amended the act to extend the scope to hoarding of gold, which was passed by Congress, and then outlawed gold ownership with Executive Order 6102.

These restrictions continued until January 1, 1975.

The Trading with the Enemy Act is often confused with the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, which grants somewhat broader powers to the President and is invoked during states of emergency when not at war.

As of 2008, Cuba is the only country restricted under the act.

North Korea is the most recent country to have the restrictions lifted.


Probably because like all programs the Government wants they keep it quiet.

Or hide it within the bureaucracy.

Or hope people are just too lazy.

You left out Bush's grandfather and IG Farben.

www.guardian.co.uk...


George Bush's grandfather, the late US senator Prescott Bush, was a director and shareholder of companies that profited from their involvement with the financial backers of Nazi Germany.
The Guardian has obtained confirmation from newly discovered files in the US National Archives that a firm of which Prescott Bush was a director was involved with the financial architects of Nazism.

His business dealings, which continued until his company's assets were seized in 1942 under the Trading with the Enemy Act, has led more than 60 years later to a civil action for damages being brought in Germany against the Bush family by two former slave labourers at Auschwitz and to a hum of pre-election controversy.

The evidence has also prompted one former US Nazi war crimes prosecutor to argue that the late senator's action should have been grounds for prosecution for giving aid and comfort to the enemy.

I want a German civilian Holocaust memorial stuck in the middle of the White House front lawn.

Every day the president of this criminal country wakes up, he should have to look out his window and see a reminder of the genocidal actions our criminal government engaged in.

Every time a photo-op takes place on the White House grounds, the press should have to see an image of a starving German child staring them in the face.

Every time a visitor comes to greet the president, they should get to see a reminder of just how evil and criminal our government is.

Look into Henry Ford and the Dearborn Independent. My father once asked me if I could find a copy of the collected articles in the university library. I was bemused to find it in German, published in Leipzig during the war years.

WW2, like all wars, was more about money than altruism. It's still a good thing the Nazis lost.

As everybody should learn about the real history of their countries all the nasty things along with the good. If a monument was built for every atrocity that every country has committed in the world we would have already ran out of mountains to carve stuff into bronze and granite.

Prolly paper mache to.

Just make people aware of what was done in the past so the children will learn from their fathers mistakes. I mean its never ever worked before once a generation or two comes out but HEY keep a stiff upper lip, one day pigs might really fly.

Edit to add Read up on that IBM stuff years ago now thats some real sick twisted stuff.

Mnemeth, I always love your threads. S+F

And I was actually aware of this myself. And believe it or not, I found out about this when I was looking into the holocaust. A lot of the infrastructure damage that allowed these actions to happen also may have affected those in the work camps. By 1945, there weren't really any roads left in Germany. Most work camps were completely disconnected from transportation lines. And then you get into Allied forces seeing the damage done and as always, taking advantage of the situation with this by strangling the entirety of Germany.

America certainly has changed from its foundation. What's funny is that if you study ethics, you can see the change ethically speaking. We went from Natural Law to Utilitarianism. The ends apparently justify the means.

I hope the Americans realise there is a hate for Americans all over the world due to your Government. I myself used to hate Americans until i started using internet extensively and came to know that Americans, majority of them are kept in dark and you guys are good. But i doubt how many will see that and have the patience to review patiently the facts. The matter of fact is America is walking on a very thin rope, very very thin rope. Your leaders will escape to safety if America is under attack but you will suffer. Dont let your leaders to more damage to you guys. America once which was land of dreams is now a land of destruction. I'm sure many still think so. If you guys dont stop your government from destroying world and yourselves, it is very bad to everyone who is living in this planet. Do something before the martial law is declared. It may be too late then.
