More German Historical Revisionism from the Vertriebene Groups

Com­ment: Adding to the momen­tum gen­er­at­ed by Eri­ka Stein­bach, the Ger­man min­is­ter over­see­ing the ver­triebene groups, peo­ple and insti­tu­tions involved with those orga­ni­za­tions have con­tin­ued to inti­mate that Poland and Britain bear respon­si­bil­i­ty for start­ing the Sec­ond World War.

Under the con­trol of the post­war SS under­ground, the ver­triebene groups embody the link between Ger­many’s present and future with its Nazi past.

Note that Dirk Baven­damm, the house his­to­ri­an for the Ber­tels­mann firm (which dom­i­nates Eng­lish lan­guage pub­lish­ing) has blamed World War II on Franklin Delano Roo­sevelt, U.S. impe­ri­al­ism and Jew­ish con­trol over the news media. (Ber­tels­mann was the pub­lish­ing out­let for the SS in World War II.)

“His­to­ry A La Carte”; german-foreign-policy.com; 9/8/2010.

Excerpt: . . . With their pub­lic state­ments, two aux­il­iary board mem­bers of the “Flight, Expul­sion, Rec­on­cil­i­a­tion Foun­da­tion” have caused the cur­rent scan­dal. They had been nom­i­nat­ed last July by the Ger­man League of Expellees (BdV) and elect­ed to their func­tions by the Ger­man Bun­destag. One of them, Arnold Tölg, BdV Region­al Chair­man in Baden Wurt­tem­berg, had told a right-wing week­ly that “while the vic­tors were right­ful­ly putting the Ger­man war crim­i­nals on tri­al in Nurem­berg, those same coun­tries [Poland, Yugoslavia, the Sovi­et Union, gfp] had com­mit­ted crimes sim­i­lar to those com­mit­ted by Hitler Ger­many, in regards to slave labor.”[1] The oth­er, Hart­mut Saenger, vice chair­man of the BdV Region­al orga­ni­za­tion in Hesse and a lec­tur­er in adult edu­ca­tion at the BdV, sug­gest­ed in a news arti­cle that Poland could share the blame for launch­ing World War II. In addi­tion he claimed that it was Great Britain, who “turned it into a world wide con­flict with its war for Danzig, which then became a glob­al con­flict when the USA entered” because of its inter­ests in the Pacif­ic. . . .
