ALBRECHT WIRTH WAS AMONG those who detailed Germans’ multiraciality. He argued that Germans were originally composed of “Celtic, Lithuanian, Germanic and Slavic blood, then Romans, Jews, Huguenots and Italians, with a smattering of Swedes, Scots, Croats, Irish, Hungarians, Spaniards and Turks.”[1] Was this hybridity the reason for Germany having been so deeply divided for so long? For Germany having no single economic, cultural or political center until the advent of National Socialism?

Hutton suggests that in order to successfully overcome these divisions, an “operational conception” of Germanness had to be adopted by the Nazis. What Hitler came up with was nothing short of brilliant: we must recognize the importance of race as it relates to the German people, and secondly, we must acknowledge the presence of the Aryan which unites us all in a common bond. This operational definition of Germanness was initially workable, but over time it faced serious challenges to its validity and applicability. The Aryan concept yielded to the Nordic concept which then gave way to the more inclusive German-blooded concept. Hitler’s main concern was the creation of a Party and accompanying doctrine that could rival Marxism in its influence and ability to unite. This is why there was initially little tolerance for varied viewpoints. No movement was going to break Marxism’s appeal unless it was as intolerant and dogmatic as Marxism: hence the Aryan-Nordic cultism of the early NSDAP.

We will now delve further into the academic tensions of Third Reich racial discourse: for example, the battle between racial anthropologists and linguists. The problem with the linguistic approach to defining the German Volk was that it allowed inclusion of aliens whom were racially too far removed from the Germans, so much so that their inclusion would probably not result in harmonious assimilation and acculturation. These racial aliens were almost always Negroes, Jews and Gypsies. In addition, German racial anthropologists had a point when they declared that no one could mistake a Mongol for a black man or a Chinese man for a white man. The differences were apparent. What the racial anthropologists struggled with was defining the German in positive terms. How were they to differentiate Germans from the Jews living among them, for example? This difficult task of racial differentiation, which was ultimately biopsychosocial, is what led to the Nuremberg Laws. The only way to determine what was German was to exclude what was obviously or reasonably not German. In application, this meant exclusion of the majority of black Germans, Gypsies and Jews from Germanhood.

Contrary to NS propaganda, Nazi theorists, like most mainstream intellectuals at that time, acknowledged the mixed-race state of the German people. The central problem they dealt with was not determining what constituted the German race (deutsche Rasse) – a term that was rejected by the majority of German academicians and politicians alike – but which races made up the German Volk and which should be allowed to continue to infuse new blood into this Volk. Most Nazi theorists argued that the Germans were composed of some six different races and that some of these races created harmonious mixtures that surpassed the achievement and cultural levels of the two original stocks from whence they were derived.

One example that was frequently cited as superior to the Nordic element by itself was the Nordic-Alpine hybrid. Ernst Kretschmer said that while these two race cores were very different, they nevertheless mixed harmoniously. According to Max Gerstenhauer, the Alpine race resulted from “pure” Germanics interbreeding with the indigenous slaves. He did not view this mixing kindly and asserted that Germans had lost “racial quality” as a result. Gerstenhauer was ostensibly dismayed by the fact that the German Volk was only 2/3 Germanic; the other 1/3 consisted of Alpine non-Germanics. Juxtaposed to this trajectory was the thesis of Walter Goetz, who argued that “racial mixing was a prerequisite for the greatest human achievements.”[2] Hermann Muckermann avowed that “the contribution of the Nordic race was at its greatest where it had mixed in a harmonious way with other compatible racial groups,” such as the Dinaric, Alpine and Phalian races. Robert Gradmann argued that the Nordic-East Baltic mixture of northern Europe resulted in the blond-haired population there. Eugen Fischer suggested that the German Volkhad benefited” from the different European peoples mixing with one another. Fischer also avered that “…many of the great Germans had come from racially mixed areas of Germany, [and] that the Nordic race in its pure state had not achieved as much as in a mixed state. There were examples of gifted Mischlinge, such as Pushkin [part-black] and Booker T. Washington [also part black].” He therefore concluded that the Germans were fortunate to have benefited from the Nordic race, but “also from the other racial elements…” Wilhelm Schmidt asserted that race-mixing between the Hamitic and Nordic peoples “gave the Nordic race its special advantage, giving it both its conquering attributes, and, to a lesser degree, the artistic gifts of totemistic town-dwellers, as well as in a great measure the thoroughness, seriousness and conscientiousness of the matriarchal agricultural people.”[3] In addition, Schmidt argued that the Nordic race’s oldest links “stretched deep into Africa and Asia.” If accurate, this negates the argument that the Nordics were “racially pure” and that Scandinavia was their birthplace as a race. Hans Günther regularly depicted the Alpine race as the “ugliest” in his various publications. In an attack on Günther, race dynamic theorist Friedrich Merkenschlager stated that southern Germans bore “up to 80 per cent ‘yellow blood’ from the Mongol race.”[4] Otto Hauser wrote that the Alpine was the result of the Nordic race crossing with the Polar (yellow) race. Furthermore, he claimed that the Mediterranean race was the result of the Negro mixing with the Nordic. If correct, this means that a “bastardized, negrified” race surpassed the civilizational level of the “pure Nordics” in Scandinavia. Classical Greece and Rome were both Mediterranean products, not Nordo-Scandinavian products.

In the end the Nordicists were not only forced to come to terms with racial mixing, but they also conceded that the Nordic race was “frequently understood as related to, or hybridized with, the Phalian race.”[5] Notions of race purity were irretrievably out the door. (As an aside, “even the most liberal lines of racial anthropology were unable to distance themselves from the notion that the ‘Negro’ was essentially inferior. This assumption was built into the foundations of that academic science from the very beginning.”[6])

Another important thing to understand about this time period is that German academics and policymakers were worried about the fall of German civilization. Since Darwin’s evolutionary theory was taken so seriously in Germany, intellectuals feared that German civilization was doomed to collapse like all the great civilations before it. And of course with that collapse would go the German Volk. But the perceived ability to reverse Germandom’s decay and eventual collapse into oblivion via eugenics rekindled these racial pessimists’ hopes. Eugenics was one tool among several that offered a solution to Germany’s racio-cultural quandary. If only the best Germans were permitted to have children, then much of Germany’s degeneration could be halted and even reversed. The Nordicists saw in eugenics the promise of re-breeding a Nordo-German upper class which could then rule over all the “bastardized” and “racially degenerated” masses of Germans, eventually improving the German people overall. Fortunately such wild breeding schemes were never realized under the Nazi government and as a matter of fact Walter Schultze

stressed that there was no programme to ‘breed’ an ideal tall, narrow-faced, blue-eyed, blond type; no hereditarily healthy member of the German Volk should feel second-class or inferior on account of lacking these features. It was the psychology, the morality, the personality of the individual that counted, and the inheritance of external physical characteristics was a matter of secondary importance. The idea that racial policies took as their ideal a particular physical type was misinformation spread by the enemies of National Socialism.”[7]

The real threat to the German Volk was not the Jews per se, but “the losses of territory and vitality, rising assimilation into other nations [such as America] and the lack of internal unity.” Georg Schmidt-Rohr, a theorist who came under official fire but was later rehabilitated by the Race Policy Office in 1939, argued that “[t]hese problems could not be solved by persecuting Jews as an outlet for the embittered discontent of the masses: cheap anti-Semitism was no solution.”[8] Rohr stressed the importance of the German language in maintaining German identity worldwide. If Germans began speaking English, Spanish, etc., then they would slowly lose their attachment to their Germanness. And that is in fact what happened to many a German before, during and after World War II. Germans abroad were amongst the most numerous and unswerving enemies of the Reich, whether they were Polish, British or American. Himmler even remarked on this problem of ‘lost Germans’ in his Top Secret Posen speech of 24 October 1943 (see hitler & himmler UNCENSORED).

Jewish International vs. Nordic International

Perhaps even more interesting than Clauss’s insights was the idea that the Nordic race component was at war with the Jewish race component. The two were seen by certain Nordicists as twins, one good and one evil, and these twins were vying for world domination. There was in fact a “curious, half-repressed racial link” shared between the Jews and the Germans, as both “shared a partial origin in the Near Eastern race.”[18] But there was a fundamental difference between these two twins that made the Jew the stronger and more influential: the Jewish twin required no physical territory to thrive and in fact flourished in modernity and the urban realm. The Jewish twin could claim his written history (the Talmud and Torah) as the basis of his collective identity, so there was no need for a territorial one. The Nordic twin, on the other hand, had no recorded history with which to identify and was therefore only at home when he was tied to his land, nature and a rural existence. He could not contend with modernity and in fact went wayward when exposed to such a context. What’s more, the Jewish twin existed equally well as a pure race and as a mixed-race; the Nordic no longer had a pure form and his existence was altogether dependent on the Völker that still bore his blood. To make matters worse for the Nordic twin, his traits seemed to diminish when he mixed with other races whereas the Jewish twin’s traits dominated when he mixed. The Nordic was the frail dying twin, the Jew the robust thriving twin. It was this metaphysical backdrop that set the stage for the intellectual racialist trajectory that the Nordic International was at war with, and simply must triumph over, the degenerative Jewish International. The very existence of the German Volk depended on a Nordic International victory. All would be lost if the Jew triumphed, hence the desire to Nordify the German people who would otherwise continue to be Judaized. Since few Nazi theorists were able to completely disavow this intellectual milieu, Nordicism was able to hang on almost to the bitter end. Even rational Hitler hints at this raciospiritual war in his Platterhof speech.

An Accurate Endorsement of My Thesis

I found this excerpt on a WN website…a pleasant surprise and accurate endorsement of my research (for a change)!

Question: Who was on watch in Germany when the door was first opened to a staggering number of foreigners?

Answer: Ironically, Germany’s immigration crisis began under Hitler’s watch, but he was advised to do it by more raceless technocrats who thought this was needed to win the war. What had happened is that a much abused Germany had temporarily gone into embracing a destabilized elite with high risk foreign policies, and with a need to compete with other great powers – or have its economy grind to a halt – Hitler launched an all out attack on Russia. And that didn’t have much anything to with some idealistic concept of spreading White pride worldwide.

No, it was about nothing less than bringing down “Jewish Bolshevism” and colonizing Russians and Slavs (members of the White race) and their living space.

In the attempt to do this, however, Germany not only drained and expended much of its best manhood (see David Starr Jordan’s anti-war book ‘The Blood of the Nation’ if this subject interests you), but absorbed a tremendous number of foreigners to fill the manpower loss and keep the industries going.

Racial sensitivities were to be temporarily cast aside or liberalized for this gamble, and a staggering number of those who were absorbed by the military or industries were either partly Jewish, non-Germanic Whites, Asians, Arabs, and even Negroes (Ref: Veronica Clark’s two volume set ‘Black Nazis’ was one many efforts to detail this much neglected subject which actually offers researchers no shortage of stunning photos as well.)

Over a third of Germany’s troops on the eastern front were former Soviet prisoners, but others came in voluntarily from fascist countries throughout the world. Then after the war, even though most were returned to their native lands, many returned again as Germany’s economy was restored; especially the Turks, as they had been in close contact with the Germans since the 17th century.

This is why the Turks comprise such a large minority in Germany today. The German business community’s appetite had been wetted by what it accomplished during wartime under Hitler, but many soldiers never came home, so the foreigners eagerly accepted the invitations to return

It’s also important to notice that, although the war began a deracination process for both types of national socialism, in Germany and the US, that the US was doing it at a slower pace. Additionally, American “national socialism” had not only the advantage of far greater resources, but represented a more modern type of business colonialism that did not always have to hold living space by its own expenditure of blood.

And the US certainly had “colonial possessions” itself, but the people in those territories had mostly been successfully moved from a more exploitative relationship to the much less exploitative relationship of a modern economy.

This is why, after superseding Germany’s colonialism, the US eventually superseded much of the colonialism of Britain (Roosevelt insisted on Britain opening up her markets to American business before getting serious about helping her) and eventually Russia.

A RODOH exchange which makes me despair…

AS: “I know what I am actually saying and I will not read an entire book only to satisfy your demands or to read about hypothesis modern science already refuted.”

Me: Out of Africa is disputed, not debunked. There’s a big difference. And I am not saying that all humans originated in Africa anyway, nor is Sergi. You did not read his book and apparently refuse to do so.

Right up front in the portion of his intro which you cut and pasted above, Sergi acknowledges that the Eurasiatic race also left its mark on Germans and throughout Europe (today’s Russian backed thesis). What he disputes is that the Germans are Aryans. If you can prove otherwise, I would like to see that because the Nazi researchers themselves acknowledged that Germans were/are not Aryans. The researcher who pushed the German-Aryan-Nordic thesis was Hans F. K. Guenther, and he had no anthropological credentials. He was a faux researcher in this respect. I would invite you to read the work of Gregor, a university professor who further discredits the German-Aryan-Nordic thesis. In any case, this is why the Nazis dropped the term officially, which I already went over. They also struggled with the term Nordic later on.

You apparently do not understand the passage above that you yourself cut and pasted. You misinterpreted that information.

What Sergi says is that the Eurafrican race, which originated on the continent of Africa and emigrated to Europe, branched off into three subgroups, which included the Nordic and Mediterranean races. Those two branches then differentiated from the primordial Eurafrican core race owing to their respective geographies/climates/circumstances/racial mixing-infusions ex post facto.

AS: “If the Aryans comes from Africa continent then from where the Negroes comes from?”

Me: Please show me where Sergi makes the claim that Aryans originated in Africa.

I cover all of this and much, much more in my trilogy…

Jan Peczkis Reviews “Lives of Hitler’s Jewish Soldiers”

Includes Details on Full-Blooded Nazi-Spared German Jews

By Jan Peczkis | October 4, 2009

hitler-jewish-soldiers-hitler-zionistIn this sequel to his HITLER’S JEWISH SOLDIERS, Rigg focuses on individuals’ experiences. WARNING: The descriptions of the carnage at the Russian front are graphic, and may be upsetting to the sensitive reader.

Rigg reminds the reader that racial Nazi ideology and Nazi officials decided who was Jewish; self-identifications and self-repudiations of Judaism did not. Tens of thousands of Christians of Jewish origin, most of whom didn’t feel Jewish, were murdered by the Nazis as Jews. (p. 17). According to the Nuremberg laws, a Jew was anyone who had three or four Jewish grandparents. A half-Jew (1st Degree Mischling) had two Jewish grandparents and a quarter-Jew (2nd Degree Mischling) had one Jewish grandparent. (p. 12). According to the Halakah (rabbinical law), more than half of the 2nd-Degree Mischling were Jews. (p. 13).

Hitler's Jewish Soldiers (vídeo)

Some of the interviewees acknowledge once admiring Hitler, as for the extensive employment opportunities created by his Autobahn program. (p. 79). The interviewees served in the armed forces as German patriots. (e. g., p. 57). Rigg considers the Yiddish term Goy to be derogatory. (p. 14).

While it is true that the majority of the German Jews and Mischlinge interviewed by Rigg escaped persecution by concealing their background or being fortunate to serve under officers that disregarded it, there were also quite a few of them known and spared by top Nazi officials and re-labeled Aryans. Hitler did this with the stroke of a pen. (p. 13). In his Chapter 3, which is on those who received the Deutschblutigkeitserklarung (declaration of German blood), Rigg wrote: “No fewer than twenty-one generals, several admirals, and one field marshal of Jewish descent served with Hitler’s consent. And thousands in the lower ranks of the Wehrmacht remained there because Hitler personally exempted them from the laws.” (p. 171). Rigg reiterates the fact that Erhard Milch had been either a half-Jew or full Jew. (pp. 177-178). In his Chapter 4, Rigg discusses those who got the Genehmigung (racial amnesty, and permission to remain in the German armed forces.)

hitler jewish soldiers

The implications of the foregoing are clear. Typically, the Jewish victims of the Germans are, tokenism aside, exclusively featured in educational Holocaust materials. The chief argument adduced in support for this monopoly is the one about Jews being uniquely targeted for TOTAL extermination. This is once again shown to be manifestly incorrect.

image008The religious views of the interviewees figure prominently in this book. The interviewees recall their ancestors’ conversions to Christianity for opportunistic reasons, and describe their Christianity as mainly a cultural one–like that of most gentile Germans. Currently, many of the interviewees fault German Christian leaders for supporting Hitler, and view both Christianity and Judaism as purveyors of divisiveness and intolerance. One of them saw the Jews’ problems as the outcome of Jewish particularism and sense of being better than others. (p. 86). Most of the interviewees lost belief in God as a result of the Holocaust and of the battlefield horrors they had experienced. One, however, believed that God had audibly led him away from a location of certain death (pp. 73-75), while another interviewee felt that God was with him and that his sense of being abandoned by God was no different from that of Christ while on the Cross. (p. 241). Rescued Rebbe Joseph Isaac Schneersohn (1880-1950) is faulted by Rigg for contending that the Holocaust was God’s punishment for the Jews’ sins. (pp. 266-268). [However, one should remember that collective divine punishment for the Jews’ sins is a common Old-Testament theme (e. g., the Babylonian Captivity).]

Several of Rigg’s interviewees took part in the 1939 German conquest of Poland. Ironic to the common portrayal of Polish soldiers as foolhardy, one of the interviewees alluded to German foolhardiness: “[Dieter] Fischer recalled that his Frankfurt division lost 25 percent of its officers, many to snipers noticing rank insignia on their uniforms. He pointed out that `stupid courage’ got many killed. One day several officers drove up and asked for a status report. Fischer explained they had spotted a Polish tank down the road and should not go further. `Are you a coward?’ one of the officers asked. They drove on and a few minutes later, the tank blew up the car. Every officer inside died.” (pp. 232-233).

Ha’avara preceded the Nuremberg race laws.

The Ha’avara Agreement was an agreement between Hitler Germany and Zionist German Jews signed on 25 August 1933.

The Nuremberg Laws were introduced on 15 September 1935 by the Reichstag at a special meeting convened at the annual Nuremberg Rally of the NSDAP.

Race Research that Upturns a Whole Lot

More HERE.

My own book Nation & Race gets into skull shape in detail. I explore Mediterranean race theory vs. Nordic race theory as well. Incidentally, Sergi proved that the Germans were also predominantly brachycephalic, not dolichocephals like the true Nordics. Basically a lot of Nazi race theory was rooted in mythology (e.g., the “Aryan race”).

Thank you to the person who sent this along. Much appreciated since it (in part) supports my own thesis.

Jan Peczkis Reviews “The Butcher of Poland: Hitler Lawyer Hans Frank”

Nazism in Context: The Personal and Professional Life of the Butcher of Poland. Atypical Insights on Stauffenberg

By Jan Peczkis | May 7, 2014

One major shortcoming of this book, for which reason I give it three stars, is the information and quotations that are not linked to any of the sources in the bibliography. This makes it difficult for the reader to conduct further research, and s/he must resort to other books on Hans Frank.

Author O’Connor puts emphasis the role of the Bavarian Catholic Church in supporting Hitler. However, he sees this as a church that had allowed itself to be shaped by the popular culture, as he comments, “`The Church which is married to the Spirit of the Age will be a widow in the next’. Dean Inge’s judgment is often quoted today in support of Catholic traditional values. In many disastrous ways the Catholic Church in the late 1920’s and the 1930’s was married to the `Spirit of the Age’.” (p. 103).

In time, the Nazis showed their true anti-Christian colors. Already in 1934, the song of the Hitler Youth included stanzas that were anti-Christ, anti-papist, and openly stated that the singer is not a Christian and not a Catholic. (p. 97). Hitler repeatedly made snide remarks about Christianity. (pp. 98-on). The Nazis abolished mandatory prayer in schools in 1935, and eliminated religious education for 14-15 year olds in 1940. (p. 95, 105).

The author touches on the sexuality of the Nazis. They modeled their homosexuality on that of the male bonding of the Spartans. (p. 57). He considers it inconclusive as to whether Hans Frank was a homosexual or bisexual. He also puts the later Nazi persecution of gays in perspective, “Later the Nazis prosecuted homosexuals and sent them to concentration camps, though this did not happen with the thoroughness of the destruction of Jews, Catholics, intellectuals, opponents of the regime, and the disabled.” (p. 95).

What about the possible Jewish ancestry of some of the Nazi leaders, including Hitler? The author notes that this question is not answerable because the Nazis had destroyed the relevant records. (p. 87).

Unfortunately, this book repeats the old canard about Polish cavalry charging German tanks during the 1939 German-Soviet conquest of Poland. (p. 124). On the other hand, author Gary O’Connor has a good grasp of the Nazi German crimes in occupied Poland, especially for a non-Polish author. These crimes were hardly limited to Jews as victims. The author features the destruction of Poland’s intelligentsia, and mass shootings of Poles, the systematic confiscation and destruction of Polish cultural treasures, the mass deaths (by starvation and cold) of Poles expelled from the Reich-annexed territories, the thorough German destruction of Warsaw after the fall of the Soviet-betrayed Warsaw Uprising, etc. One minor point: the genocidal “Zamosc experiment” against Poles is misspelled as Zamosz. (p. 171).

But, according to white nationalists, Hitler was “Mr. White Solidarity”, “White Power”, “White Nationalism.” Why, then, did he do this to the white Poles?

The author demythologizes Claus von Stauffenberg, notably as portrayed in the movie VALKYRIE. The would-be assassin of Hitler supported the German conquest, exploitation, and colonization of Poland. Even in 1944, Stauffenberg wanted a peace with the Soviet Union that would return Poland to the partitioned state of 1914. (p. 130). This reminds us once again that being anti-Hitler does not make one an anti-Nazi, and that being an anti-Nazi does not prevent one from being a German imperialist.

At the Nuremberg trials, the Nazi defendants commonly attempted to exculpate their conduct by blaming it on the “injustices” of Versailles, and by adopting an “Allies were just as bad” line of rationalization. Some tried to equate the authoritarianism of the Nazis with that of the Catholic Church. Psychologist Douglas Kelley, accused of being the one who smuggled the cyanide capsule to Goering, later (December 1957) himself committed suicide by taking the same poison–an alleged souvenir from the Nuremberg trials. (p. 238).

Hans Frank warned that Hitler was but the first stage of a “new man”–one that is amoral. The author then juxtaposed it with the warnings of Pope John Paul II about the emergence of a “culture of death”, albeit one that manifests itself in many different forms, and not only totalitarian ones. (p. 220).
