GENOCIDE of German PoWs: EISENHOWER’S DEATH CAMPS ?
There has been some unresolved controversy regarding an alleged deliberate policy by the Americans to kill German PoWs by neglect, starvation and exposure in 1945.
The story of Eisenhower’s Rhine Meadows death camps — a claim of a deliberate policy of extermination of the surrendered German forces by the Americans and French, in post-war Germany (Rheinwiesenlager) — was revealed to the world by a Canadian named James Bacque in his 1989 book entitled ‘Other losses’.
"The victims undoubtedly number over 800,000, almost certainly over 900,000 and quite likely over a million. Their deaths were knowingly caused by army officers who had sufficient resources to keep the prisoners alive".
An attempt was immediately made in certain predictable quarters to discredit the claims in the book as false.
I had read the book a long time ago, but I had never come across an eye-witness testimony of this alleged genocidal treatment from one of the victims. Until today.
The following account is from Roger Büttner, one of the prisoners. He mentions in passing his own experience of the treatment of himself and other German surrendered soldiers, in this account of a Near-death-experience (NDE) he had in a camp while near to death by starvation and neglect.
2,525,000 (3.4% Jews) lived in the Russian Empire 1942 (link) Add to this about 2 million Polish people forcibly transferred with a jewish population of 16.25% (325 k) bringing the total jewish population to 2.85 million jews under the Soviet Sphere of Influence.
The russian population in 1942 would have been 74.3 million to get the historical figure for jews above. (3.84% being jews.) During pre war, war, and post war period the NKVD murdered 34.8 million over a 14+ year period (2.32 million pa) link. (1939-1953)
Assuming Jews were a representative part of the murdered population, considering they did not have special status the number of jewish deaths in that period would be 1.3 million.
This is not to demean the deaths at the hands of the Nazis (how they died is irrelevant) but it seems to me that the supporters of the Holocaust is blind to the fate of their fellow brethren at the hands of the Soviets.
Alexander Solzhenitsyn shouted the fate of a good proportion of jews in his book "the Gulag Archipelego", but got wacked over the knuckles for exposing the jews in power organizing the mass terror. They eventually got their come uppance by Stalin, but the mayhem they caused prior to this is quite considerable.
Why has the murder of 1.3 million jews by the Soviets gone largely unnoticed by the Holocaust crowd?
“Those who play with the devil's toys will be brought by degrees to wield his sword” – R. Buckminster Fuller, 1895
For decades the US has lied, covered-up, whitewashed and justified their policy of ex-judicial murders of non-white people in non-European countries. Decades of murders by US military — even massacres and rapes — of innocent civilian non-combatants has been excused by the Pentagon, US politcians and US Presidents. Thankfully that appears to be changing, as one of the recent murders of non-whites in foreign countries is coming under criticism from main-stream media... finally. That seems to be because seven of the murdered were children.
...the footage from both drones shows that children were nearby at the time of the strike. One view from directly above is less clear — black-and-white footage showing heat sources — but there still seem to unmistakably be small bodies moving around near the car just before the strike. A second drone nearby shows higher resolution footage, where it's much more clear that children were in the alleyway by the house just prior to the strike.
That the strike happened anyway is apparently part and parcel for how the military has used drones in the War on Terror. It's why whistleblowers have been warning us all along that the U.S. has been misleading us by claiming these strikes are precise, and capable of taking out terrorists without collateral damage.
The footage certainly reinforces the analysis The New York Times published in December that determined that not only has the military dramatically under counted the number of civilians killed by drone strikes in Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Syria, and other countries, it also seems to have very little interest in analyzing what causes strikes to go bad and has done a poor job of analyzing its failures. Furthermore, it was operational policy for the military to call for drone strikes even when children were present if officials could argue that there was an important "military advantage" gained by the strike.
In 1918 the philosopher and ward/grandson of the UK Primeminister Lord Russel, was given a prison sentence.
Bertrand Russell was punished in 1918 on the tenuous grounds that he had interfered in British war time foreign policy. Russell's activism against British participation in World War One led to him receiving severe fines, a loss of freedom of travel within Britain (near house arrest, Russell was permitted to travel only by foot) and the non-renewal of his fellowship at Trinity College, University of Cambridge. Russell was eventually sentenced to a jail-term in Brixton prison in 1918 on the grounds that he had interfered in British foreign policy – he had argued that British workers should be wary of the United States Army on British soil, for it had seasoned and expert experience in strike-breaking.
Here is his description of his time in Brixton Prison:
"I was rather interested in my fellow-prisoners, who seemed to me in no way morally inferior to the rest of the population, though they were on the whole slightly below the usual level of intelligence, as was shown by their having been caught.
I was much cheered, on my arrival, by the warder at the gate, who had to take particulars about me. He asked my religion and I replied "agnostic." He asked how to spell it, and then remarked with a sigh: "Well, there are many religions, but I suppose they all worship the same God."
This remark kept me cheerful for about a week.
One time, when I was reading, I laughed so loud that the warder came round to silence me, yelling: "You must remember that prison is a place of punishment!".

WARNING: Idiotic, ignorant, racist, hate-driven fools who have become stubborn and wilful victims of decades of ‘holyhoax’ misinformation and think ONLY Jews suffered or were killed in their millions prior to, during and after WW2 LOOK AWAY NOW. Or risk experiencing cognitive dissonance and perhaps sinking still lower by feeling compelled to excuse or deflect from the following somehow.
Here is an excerpt from an article still vainly attempting to minimise and somehow justify the theft, loot and rapine of the American, Russian armies and other allied forces.
Magnitude of the sexual and predatory crimes committed by Allied Forces during and after WWII
Giles MacDonogh: “A Russian lieutenant walked into a barber’s shop and proceeded to rape the [German] cashier in front of the customers.”
By Jonas E. Alexis, Senior Editor - October 4, 2022
The evidence is quite clear that raping women and children was a form of revenge for the Allied forces. And as one scholar puts it, “rape was an earth-shattering experience.” ...
[Hanna Schissler, The Miracle Years: A Cultural History of West Germany, 1949-1968 (Princeton: Princeton University Press, 2001), p. 28]
Antony Beevor has written that the Soviet soldiers “raped every German female from eight to 80.” Many Western historians are scared to to write about these issues because the Allied Forces, of course, have been viewed as liberators. But the fact is that the Allied Forces viewed themselves as “avengers.” “One of the French officers is supposed to have said, ‘We are the avengers, the SS of the French Army.’”
The French units “were made up of French soldiers from the 5th Armoured Division, Foreign Legionaries, and Moroccan and Algerian troops from the 2nd Moroccan and the 3rd Algerian Infantry Divisions. From the first the French made it clear that the people were going to be properly punished.
“There would be three days of plunder. A sergeant said that the troops would be released from discipline, and a quartermaster added, ‘In the next few nights no woman will go untouched’…
“The surviving houses were systematically destroyed with benzene: 649 were burned down in this way. It was now open season for any women aged between sixteen and eighty. It is generally said that the Moroccans behaved the worst.”
The French soldiers moved to Stuttgart, where “3,000 women and eight men were raped”. In another place called Vaihingen, “A further 500 women were raped…”
Yet revenge was one of their plans, and they were... On 7 May the Red Army deliberately started fires in the ruins. What was left of the city was looted.
“On 10 May the library of the university or Leopoldina for which Brahms had written his famous Academic Festival Overture went up in flames; on the 15th it was the turn of the city museum. On the same day the twin towers of one of the city’s great Backsteingotik churches—St. Mary Magdalene—were blown up.”
THE THIEVING ALLIES Other atrocities were committed as well. After the war, the Americans joined the Russians in looting German towns and villages. The Soviet forces, of course, started “all sorts of theft.”
During the first two days of August, it is estimated that they stole “1,280,000 tons of materiel and 3,6000,000 tons of equipment.” U.S. soldiers were accused of stealing paintings, and two U.S. officers “of the Women’s Army Corps were tried for stealing $1,500,000 worth of jewelry.”
… In my lifetime, the United States has overthrown or attempted to overthrow more than 50 governments, mostly democracies. It has interfered in democratic elections in 30 countries. It has dropped bombs on the people of 30 countries, most of them poor and defenceless. It has attempted to murder the leaders of 50 countries. It has fought to suppress liberation movements in 20 countries. The extent and scale of this carnage is largely unreported, unrecognised, and those responsible continue to dominate Anglo-American political life …
Having soaked for 82 years in a deep bath of righteousness that is the official version of the last world war, isn’t it time those who are meant to keep the record straight declared their independence and decoded the propaganda? The urgency is greater than ever.
