75nd anniversary of the slaughter-bombing of the city of Dresden
By Michael Hoffman
In the aftermath of the bombing of Dresden, Germany, 1945
Today, Feb. 14, is the 72nd anniversary of the Allied Aschermittwoch (“Ash Wednesday”) slaughter-bombing holocaust against the art city of Dresden, Germany, where upwards of 100,000 civilians were incinerated, and the priceless art treasures of the historic city were forever obliterated. Even if we limit concern to aesthetics alone, the savage fire-bombing of this mostly medieval German city wiped out a fairy tale architecture of awesome beauty.
The night before, on Shrove Tuesday, Allied bombers hit trains and buses full of children returning from parties preceding Ash Wednesday.
The saturation incendiary bombing by the RAF and the US Army Air Force was one of the most barbarian assaults in the history of the West. Because the victims were the “wicked” German people however, this holocaust is barely a blip on the moral outrage screen of our patrician “Good War” enthusiasts.
Winston Churchill, the architect of the auto-da-fe, who later disavowed his role with the chicanery that was typical of this scoundrel, is hailed on “conservative Christian” college campuses both Catholic and Protestant as the epitome of a “ great statesman of western civilization.”
Such a view is a grave failure of vision. Dresden is in Saxony and the English are a Saxon and Norman people (or at least they were in 1945). The fratricide in Dresden was an act of insanity on the part of the British and American representatives of western syphilization. As long as Churchill is presented as a paradigm of any kind of goodness, the bipolar mentality inculcated by that fraud will continue to shackle our ability to wrangle a future for our children.
The spot where the corpses of German civilians in the photo above were piled is today marked by an engraved stone put up by the post-war German government. It is inscribed, “Germany brought war to the world and here it was brought back to Germany.”
Do the fools who scribbled that epitaph understand the implications of their alibi for terrorism? It was America that “brought war” to Iraq. Therefore, is it permissible for Iraqis to commit terrorism against American civilians? It was the Judaic Bolsheviks who had been (largely) raised in Talmudic homes who “brought war” to the Christians of Russia. Therefore, was it permissible for Hitler to terrorize Judaic civilians? There is no excuse for targeting civilians, whether by ISIS in the Middle East or the British and Americans in the heart of ancient Saxony.
This writer has had friendships with a few combat veterans of the Second World War Germany army. One of these was the Roman Catholic German soldier Hans von der Heide. In 1985 he related to me (on videotape) that he and his brother soldiers were held captive in an American POW camp after the war and were shown atrocity photos of "German crimes." One of the photos was said to be of “Jewish victims of Auschwitz.” The photo shown was the one we have reproduced in this column. Mr. Von der Heide told me that one of the German soldiers present knew Saxony well and shouted to the American in charge of their “re-education” session, “Those are the dead of Dresden, not Auschwitz!”
