    Post Oaths of the Third Reich

    ......some material to overcome the stereotypes regarding giving ones oath during the period of the Third Reich it is a common place stereotype for anti-NS to place an emphasis on the swearing of loyalty to Adolf Hitler whilst placing an anti-christian sentiment to the whole practice, however as one can see from the following material there is great emphasis on "God" then often depicted in mainstream beliefs upon the practice.

    Many German scientists working at Peenemuende were required to take an oath of silence about some developments made there. It was the basic: What happened in Peenemuende says in Peenemuende-type oath. This oath and varients in other scientific-technical communities have been hard to crack. Germans take this very seriously. Usually the only hope is a death-bed confession.

    Note the SS oath, which also invoked God.
