MILLIONS OF GERMANS EXPELLED AT WW2 END

The aftermath of the end of Second World War was even more brutal than the war itself especially for German civilians in Europe in Germany and elsewhere. The war of conquest unleashed by Hitler's Nazi Germany had embittered the countries that had suffered in German hands. They also feared that a resurgent Germany in the future would harass and invade them again on the pretext of 'saving' German minorities in other countries. Hitler had done exactly that. So as WW2 ended the mood in countries in eastern Europe was to throw all German minorities back into Germany.
It led to a most brutal expulsion history has ever seen.

SAVAGE EUROPE AFTER WW2 ENDED: GERMAN POW BADLY TREATED BY ALLIES

If the Germans had thrown the Geneva Conventions of 1929 out of the window during WW2, the victorious Allies acted no better. Though German prisoner of war were treated better in American and British camps then the Soviet ones, they hardly acted as angels.

HITLER'S SECRET WEAPON: V3

The V3 was the natural development from the V1 and V2 weapons that had terrorised London in 1944 - a weapon for revenge ('Vergeltungswaffen'). The V3 was never fired at London though it was used in a very minor way in the Battle of the Bulge.

The V3 was not a rocket like to V2 nor a pilot-less plane like the V1. It was a dart-shaped shell nine feet long and the 416 feet gun barrels targeted by the Lancasters were, on paper, capable of firing 600 of these shells every hour.

SOME RARE IMAGES OF HITLER

What is surprising, then, is that Hitler never visited a single concentration camp, let alone death camp. He kept himself aloof from the dirtiest work of his regime. He did not speak about the "Final Solution", even to his closest entourage, other than in vague terms. 
He spoke publicly, and in the most vicious way, about the persecution of the Jews, but he never associated himself in plain language with their killing, as Himmler did. In October 1943 the Reichsführer addressed SS leaders about what it was like to see 1,000 corpses lying side by side, describing "the extermination of the Jewish people" as a "glorious page in our history that has never been written and is never to be written".

AMERICAN GIs TOO RAPED MANY MANY GERMAN WOMEN DURING WW2

The general perception is that the Russian soldiers were the real bad guys of the WW2. Those Mongoloid brute despoiled many innocent German women.

The American soldiers were the good guys. They gave chocolates to poor German girls and saved many of them from the big bad Red Army rapists.

The truth is far from it, if recent writings in Germany are to be believed. Americans were as bad rapists as the Russian one. They raped despite the fact that they were much better off and could have wooed their victims rather than forcibly ravaging them.

German estimates are that nearly 2,00,000 German women were raped by GIs during and after WW2.

WHAT WAS THE DREYFUS AFFAIR?

In 1894, Alfred Dreyfus (1859-1935) was accused of treason and condemned by a military tribunal to degradation and deportation to the Ile de Diable, an island off the coast of French Guyana. Two years later, in 1896, the government found that the first condemnation was based on false documents and that a deeply indebted officer, Commandant Esterhazy (1847-1923), was more than likely the actual traitor. After a mockery of a trial, however, Esterhazy was acquitted.

OSTFRONT LAST MONTHS: SOME IMAGES

The Russians dismissed the much hyped allied landings on Normandy on D-Day as of little consequence. Which is true to a great extent. If the Russians had not dug in at Moscow in the winter of 1941 and stubbornly stopped all German assaults, there would have been no D-Day. If the Russians had not taken heavy losses at Stalingrad and defeated the Germans there would have been Britain from where the Americans launched D-Day.


The Eastern Front in WW2 was a harsh place which saw some of the most brutal and inhuman fighting between two great proud peoples, the world has ever seen.

Below are some images of the last months of the war on the Ostfront. The Russians with lot of men and arms are moving inexorably towards Germany... to Berlin. A desperate Nazi regime is exhorting its men to fight till the end. The German defence was fierce, born out of desperation. They knew the Russians would take no prisoners. And deservedly, after what the Germans did in Russia...
