    What Do We Know About the Third Reich Period ?

    Friends, if not to follow Hollywood`s treatment of history of this period, what we know about the Third Reich ? How many percent of truth are openly and how many are closed for mass consciousness. What we can't speak till now? Opinions are interesting.

    I think it started off doing tremendous things for war and depression torn post WWI Germany, and was a valiant attempt to put greater Germania where it belonged in the European and world hierarchy, both contemporary for it's day and based on past earned glories.

    At the end of the day, it became mismanaged, over reaching in scope logistically as a war machine, corrupted in it's original ideals and purpose, and ultimately failed.

    As Germanic people, we will suffer the consequences as outlined some 80 or so year ago should it fail.

    This is but one facet of German history agreed. However I have both an "armchair scholar" as well as a family vested interest in the topic, and I am not loath to discuss this subject willingly, albeit at the risk of sounding like a drone or kook to some.

    I think it is also of great interest to us as a race, on this forum and elsewhere, because like it or not, it IS the most momentous thing we Germanic people have attempted historically speaking in a very long time.

    It was a great idea, the management of which was sometimes delegated to unworthy persons who perverted the message of National Socialism. Further, Germany was sandwiched in between two massive nations and certain mistakes in the execution of the war and conquered populations emerged to create significant problems in regards to the sustainability of the empire. I still believe in the Lebensraum idea, but not on this planet. I think it's time to put the violently hostile anti-slavic sentiment behind us. In the future, I envision the Lebensraum that Germanic people unquestionably need, being acquired on other habitable planets.

    Decided to move this to it's own topic out of consideration to the original poster.

    I’m afraid anything good about the Third Reich has been suppressed. Nobody dare speak up for it in case they’re called a Nazi and any written documents that may portray it in a favourable light have no doubt been destroyed!

    Still, I have had the pleasure of knowing some people who lived through this great period and one was my landlady in London (25 years ago) who told me what a euphoric chapter of German history it was and a time of genuine happiness for so many. Obviously, perceptions are subjective but she truly believed that this was a fantastic era and always spoke with real fondness and emotion about it. Sure, a lot of elderly folks talk about “the good old days” but this went way beyond simple nostalgia and she even managed to convince some of my student mates that NS Germany had its good points! To be honest, I’d always thought of Adolf Hitler as more bad than good (but by no means a demon) up until then but this lady, Frau Doe, persuaded me otherwise.

    My knowledge of the Third Reich was then increased further when I went to Germany for a year. There I met a girlfriend who, I would have to say, even made velvet look quite moderate Her family were all NS and her brother’s idea of a good Saturday night out was a punch-up with American soldiers from Pforzheim barracks (which is another tale ) but it was her older relatives who had the most interesting stuff to tell. Her Granny related how she and about half a dozen of her female friends had spent 36 hours working almost non-stop to make a hand-stitched, giant-sized banner when they knew that the Führer was coming to their home town - could any politician inspire such devotion today? I doubt it! Regular chats with her parents tied in almost exactly with what I’d heard from my landlady and the same key words kept cropping up, such as “pride” “dignity” “loyalty” “unity” and so on (how many of these qualities have survived?) plus a few more that some would find surprising such as social justice. This was considered to be far greater than in our (so-called) liberal democracies by those who had actually lived under the two systems and I couldn’t argue because, unlike them, I had no means of making a first-hand comparison.

    So I think my learning experience about the Third Reich had more to do with dispelling old myths rather than discovering any major *revelations* that I can wow everyone with. I’m just sorry I made a complete prat of myself on more than one occasion by (for example) asking whether train drivers were shot if their trains ran late It all sounds pretty stupid now but when you’ve been hearing this kind of garbage for 20-odd years you do begin to wonder if there's any truth in it, and don’t forget there was no independent media back then such as the Internet to check these things out. As fast as my admiration for Hitler was growing, my anger at being deceived for so long was mounting so there was a double mechanism at work here and I have since spent hours looking at those massed gatherings that are now widely available at places like YouTube. You can clearly see the joy of 1930's Germans and, contrary to what the latter-day propagandists tell us, they didn’t all have guns in their backs! You cannot fake this sort of exuberance on such a vast scale and you soon realise that something very special was happening back then, the like of which we may never see again.

    Under National Socialist Germany there were enacted the:
    -First anti-animal cruelty laws
    -Some of the first animal conservation laws
    -First anti-smoking laws
    -First cancer awareness campaign

    -The Volkswagen was desinged
    -The Autobahn was constructed

    -Encouraged the usage of home gardens, healthy eating, and exercise

    -Restored Germany to a major militarial power
    -Restored German pride and interest in German history (encouraged things relevant to Paganism and old German ways)

    National Socialist Germany was not an "evil opressive military dictatorship that wanted to annex the whole world"
    -Tried to peacefully unite German peoples under one government (many of whom were being opressed/discriminated against in their current country)
    -Refrained from bombing civilian targest until Churchill ordered a full scale bombing of Berlin after a single German bomber got lost in fog and dropped bombs on London
    -Let the British evacuate from Dunkirk
    -Built concentration camps, not death camps. The inmates were to be peacefully relocated after the war (it's not like he can do it during a war)

    -Hitler and numerous other party members actively sought peace throughout the course of the war (see: Rudolf Hess)


    This website has some interesting information about the positive things that happened under Hitler that we are never told about: http://www.adolfthegreat.com/

    The British was Hitler's favor,Hitler well respected his brothers but nothing came back in return.

    Under Hitler/The Third Reich,European women were encourage to have loads of children for the survival of our own European race.Hitler was on par with how the Japanese and Islam Muslim think about there culture and people today...preserving and making sure that they survive for another 1000 years.

    The National Socialist regime also managed to reverse the post-World War I, post-Versailles Treaty German economy in an astonishingly short amount of time. Weimar hyper-inflation, though shorter in duration than the American Great Depression, was far worse...the wealth of most of Germany's citizens had been destroyed. Here is an interesting website detailing the change-

    http://www.joelscoins.com/exhibger2.htm

    The Nazi's of course did great things for Germany, particularly as other posters have said in restoring honor and military power to what was perceived as a broken Germany, and because of the positive aspects of the regime they were able to gather the support of most German citizens. Post-war propaganda will say they were all under the spell of Hitler's occult-influenced charisma and place great emphasis on resistance movements, but not once during the stretch of the war, even when things were at their most bleak and grim, did the German people betray the Nazi regime.

    I think I also read somewhere that after the war was over, before re-education and propaganda were introduced, that an overwhelming majority of Germans said they felt positive about the Nazi regime. If only this sense of honor, pride, and self-confidence could be restored in the West today...
