Q: When is a criminal prosecution not a criminal prosecution?

A: When it’s a photo-op!

With gratitude to Gerard Menuhin for the lyrics, for the photo-op idea and for the inspiration to use Schubert’s adaptation of Goethe’s Der Erlkoenig.

The Einsatzgruppen – an alternative approach

The information in this blog post is taken from the fourth in a series of videos by French revisionist, Vincent Reynouard, on the Einsatzgruppen – German action squads sent behind the Eastern front in 1941 to ‘clean up’ the threat posed to Hitler’s Third Reich by Bolshevists and Jewish Partisans.

In the first three episodes (as yet without English subtitles) Reynouard builds up to his grand finale with an exposé on the reasons why this most bloody and gruesome chapter of World War Two came about. With characteristic passion and aplomb, he details events which preceded the outbreak of war in 1939 and analyses Hitler’s decision to invade Russia. Using original documents, photographs and film footage, Reynouard then goes on to describe deployment of the Einsatzgruppen .

At the beginning of Part 4, Reynouard thanks contributors who, by their kind donations, have allowed him and Belgian revisionist colleague, Siegfried Verbeke, to buy copies of the official Einsatzgruppen reports (which are the result of collated Einsatzgruppen field reports) made at the Reich’s Berlin headquarters. Verbeke studied the 3,000 pages in order to calculate the number of executions carried out by these so-called ‘mobile death squads’.

Indeed, it seems that, to date, there has never been any study or research based on these original, official documents by conventional historians. Moreover, here you can see screenshots of court transcripts of the Nuremberg statutes concerning presentation of these same documents at the Einsatzgruppen trial. Only the accusation – the victorious Allies – was granted full access to the Einsatzgruppen reports. The defence – the losers – was kept in the dark and only shown extracts from 15 of the thousands of reports – extracts indicting them of ‘war crimes’. Verbeke and Reynouard’s work reveals not only the gaps left by historians, it shows us how the prosecution at Nuremberg managed to have the defence convicted by way of lies, fraud and deception.

The Einsatzgruppen were divided into four units of roughly 500 men each and were spread out from north to south along the Eastern occupied territories. We learn from the Nuremberg court transcripts that their mission – as well as ‘cleaning up’ Bolshevik enemies of the Reich – was to concentrate all Jews into cities and large towns, Jews being the natural allies of the Bolsheviks.

Squads would enter a town, find the local notables and officials who would then be interviewed by the Einsatzgruppen resident Gestapo – the German secret police. If the officials were found to be useful – say, as informants – their lives would be spared. If not, they would be shot and the execution would be duly reported, giving date, time, place as well as the reason for the killing.

It was a bloody war, without rules, without honour and without mercy. A war which would decide the future of the Reich, now fighting on two separate fronts. The German soldiers were constantly under threat from terror attacks by Jewish partisans who were also spreading anti-German propaganda amongst the eastern populations. If German soldiers were found to have been tortured and killed in an ambush, the Einsatzgruppen would then be ordered to retaliate by rounding up and executing civilians – mostly Jews. With strict German military formality, these mass executions would also be recorded in field reports which would then be sent to Berlin by the squad Kommandants to be collated into the official documents, as studied by Verbeke. These reports were copied 62 times before being circulated to party officials, suggesting that they must be authentic.

Verbeke’s research of the 3,000 pages found only a small fraction of reports relating to mass executions. At Nuremberg, the number of deaths 1941-1942 cited is 1,000,000. Verbeke’s calculations show a maximum total of 450,000 of which 357,000 were Jews. The greater part of the Einsatzgruppen reports relate to more banal matters of schools, hospitals, food supply, welfare, as well as ghettoisation of Jews, etc.

We learn that mass executions sometimes took place out of sheer necessity. Food sources were becoming increasingly scarce. Locals were starving which caused further unrest. Reports show that the worst-affected patients of at least two mental institutions were liquidated in order to relieve the situation and improve the lives of local residents. A mass execution took place in another town where Jews had been stealing food and then selling it on the black market.

Several reports inform us of the local population’s satisfaction over these killings. Jews were widely hated and seen as collaborators. They often held top positions in local administration because of their allegiance with the despotic Bolsheviks.

As with the magical six million figure and the fantastical gas chamber murder weapon, a shroud of deception has been placed over the verifiable functioning of the Einsatzgruppen. They were not sent out to systematically kill all Jews. If this were the case, then why bother to concentrate Jews in ghettos built specially for them, where they had their own officials and were generally left to their own devices?

Mass executions were not carried out indiscriminately, but were done for reasons of retaliation against Partisan terrorism or out of absolute necessity during a time of war. Horrific though this might seem, the official records confirm that there was no systematic extermination policy concerning Jews. Conventional spin on the Einsatzgruppen is yet another ruse intended to elevate Jewish suffering to a quasi-religious belief which cannot be equalled. How can a single crucifixion compare to six million souls being sent to their deaths just because they happen to be Jewish?

Times are changing, and at last the mist is dissipating and the full picture is about to be revealed. Jews suffered no more and no less than other groups during World War Two. Jews were not the only ones to be rounded-up, sent to camps or indeed shot and buried in mass graves by the Einsatzgruppen. We know that Jews also fought in the German army and gave orders as Sonderkommandos in the camps.

Vincent Reynouard is still alive, but the persecution he has suffered for what he describes as “the cause” is far from being imaginary. Like Siegfried Verbeke and other revisionists, he has even been imprisoned for his opinions in a so-called ‘democratic’ and ‘free’ Liberated Europe! Recently, Reynouard was forced to flee France and – like myself and so many other dissident voices – has lost work, been separated from his family and is obliged to be on constant guard vis-à-vis the immoral deception of our common enemy: Zionism. Please support him if you can.

Our enemy is also the enemy of humanity. It’s time to wake up, to open your eyes and resist Zionism’s evil oppression.
