Fresh extracts from the recently discovered war diary of SS chief Heinrich Himmler in the Russian Military Archive near Moscow detail the most sinister speech in history which he delivered to underlings who carried out the Holocaust.
“And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.” Genesis 12:3 (KJV)
It was October 4, 1943 and marked in the diary of the ‘Reichsführer-SS’ as a ‘Group Leader meeting.’ The innocuous sounding title masked the true horror of what Himmler would say in his speech at 5.30pm in Poznan, occupied Poland.
It was the secret key speech of the entire extermination programme in which, among other things, Himmler told his executioners: ‘I am talking about the evacuation of the Jews, the extermination of the Jewish people.
‘It is one of those things that is easily said. ‘The Jewish people is being exterminated,’ every Party member will tell you, ‘perfectly clear, it’s part of our plans, we’re eliminating the Jews, exterminating them, a small matter.’
‘And then along they all come, all the 80 million upright Germans, and each one has his decent Jew. They say: all the others are swine, but here is a first-class Jew. And none of them has seen it, has endured it. Most of you will know what it means when 100 bodies lie together, when 500 are there or when there are 1000.
‘And… to have seen this through and — with the exception of human weakness — to have remained decent, has made us hard and is a page of glory never mentioned and never to be mentioned. Because we know how difficult things would be, if today in every city during the bomb attacks, the burdens of war and the privations, we still had Jews as secret saboteurs, agitators and instigators.
‘Altogether we can say: We have carried out this most difficult task for the love of our people. And we have suffered no defect within us, in our soul, or in our character.’
At 9.30pm that evening he dined with the SS killers and two hours later boarded his private train Steiermark for the journey back to Berlin.
Other entries from the diaries, discovered in a Russian military archive after vanishing in the chaos of the defeat of Nazi Germany in 1945 and being serialised by the best selling BILD newspaper in Germany, include two from 1938.
The private life of Heinrich Himmler also surfaces in the diaries of the monster – truly illustrating the banality of evil.
False teacher Steven Anderson continues the Nazi legacy of hatred for the Jews:
This video is so pathetically bad in it’s attempts to rewrite both history and the Bible that it would be laughable if it wasn’t so serious. Anderson’s hatred for the Jews would do Hitler proud. But we show it here to remind you that Nazism and anti-semitism did not die with Adolf Hitler.
On March 9 that year he records a ‘comradely’ lunch at the Dachau concentration camp outside Munich: the first such camp set up by the regime which would go on to kill 36,000 people by the time the war ended.
The next day he chronicles a visit to the Sachsenhausen concentration camp outside of Berlin with propaganda maestro Joseph Goebbels. And four days after that he was in the east of the country visiting the Buchenwald concentration camp where he also lunched.
Later that night he travelled to Weimar where he dined with the Nazi party Gauleiter – local leader – Fritz Sauckel, a man who would later hang for war crimes at Nuremberg for organising slave labour in wartime.
This is what really happened to the Jews in Nazi Germany:
Himmler noted in his diary: ‘Tea and agreement to become godfather to his son.’ Himmler was the godfather to dozens of children of high ranking Nazis during his career.
These diaries were not written by Himmler himself. As such, they are not as personal a record as the letters that were published two years ago, in which Himmler could be seen writing fondly to his wife after touring horrific places such as Auschwitz.
These diaries were instead written by a series of adjutants, who would record with utmost meticulousness nearly every hour of Himmler’s long days. But the devil is well and truly present in these pages and pages of details.
On one day in 1944, the diary records how Himmler receives a massage from his private physician. Then the banality slides into brutality. What shocks most about the new diaries is the utter blandness in which visits and events such as this are recorded, and are juxtaposed with the routine chores of officialdom — such as lunches and meetings — endured by any bureaucrat or politician. To appreciate that is to start to understand the unique evil of Nazism. source
