5 Oct 1938

On October 5, 1938, the Reich Ministry of the Interior invalidates all German passports held by Jews. Jews must surrender their old passports, which will become valid only after the letter “J” has been stamped on them.

The government required Jews to identify themselves in ways that would permanently separate them from the rest of the German population. In an August 1938 law, authorities decreed that by January 1, 1939, Jewish men and women bearing first names of “non-Jewish” origin had to add “Israel” and “Sara,” respectively, to their given names. All German Jews were obliged to carry identity cards that indicated their heritage, and, in the autumn of 1938, all Jewish passports were stamped with an identifying red letter “J”.

The beer price was set by the NSDAP government so as to be affordable and the poor were fed a meal on the first day. It was a celebration of German culture, tradition and food. In 1936, the colors of Bavaria and Munich were replaced by the official colors of the Reich (black/white/red). In 1938, after the annexation of Sudeten Germany (Sudentenland), the Oktoberfest was renamed in “Greater German festival” and many Sudeten Germans were brought to the festivities.

The Michelangelo of the Third Reich

arno-breker-800x445.jpg
Arno Breker (1900 – 1991) was a German sculptor, best known for his public works in Third Reich Germany, which were endorsed by the NSDAP as the antithesis of degenerate art. During his time in Paris in the twenties and early thirties he was influenced by Jean Cocteau, Jean Renoir, Pablo Picasso and Aristide Maillol, who was later to describe Breker as ‘Germany’s Michelangelo’. He maintained personal relationships with Albert Speer and with Hitler. In 1937 Breker joined the National Socialist German Workers’ Party and was made ‘official state sculptor’ by Hitler. He was given a large property and provided a studio with forty-three assistants. As main sculptor and more or less number one on the Gottbegnadeten list, he was exempted from military service. His twin sculptures The Party and The Army held a prominent position at the entrance to Albert Speer’s new Reich Chancellery.

Arno Breker was represented at the Great German Art Exhibitions with 42 works. The neoclassical nature of his work, with titles like Comradeship, Torchbearer and Sacrifice, typified Party ideals, and suited the characteristics it’s architecture. On closer inspection, though, the proportions of his figures, the highly colorful treatment of his surfaces (the strong contrasts between dark and light accents), and the melodramatic tension of their musculatures perhaps invites comparison with the Italian Mannerist sculptors of the 16th century. While nearly all of his sculptures survived World War II, more than 90% of his public work was destroyed by the Allies after the war. Arno Breker had 10 sculptures displayed at the XXI Venice Biennale, 1938 and the XXII Venice Biennale, 1940, including ‘Pronti’ (‘Bereitschaft’, GDK 1939), ‘Ricardo Wagner’ (‘Bust of Richard Wagner’, GDK 1941), and ‘Ponderazione’ (‘Berufung’, GDK 1941). Four works by Breker were part of the art collection of Hermann Göring and destinated for the ‘Norddeutsche Gallery’. In 1946 Breker was offered a commission by Joseph Stalin but he refused.

After the war he continued to receive commissions for sculptures, producing a number of works in his familiar classical style, working for businesses and individual patrons. He also produced many bronze female sculptures, in smaller sizes. Some of these were casts from original models designed before 1945.

“Today, humanity is only occupied with various materials. Someone takes a piece of railroad track and sets it on a lawn, and that’s supposed to be art.” – Arno Breker

“If you look at history, you’ll see there are no schizophrenic sculptors. … We sculptors are too close to the material. We have to deal with stone, with the material. The overcoming of the material is a monumental task, one that challenges me from the moment my day begins.” – Arno Breker

“Hitler Was a Nice Uncle”

adolf-hitler-albert-speer-jr

Albert Speer Jr., son of Adolf Hitler’s chief architect, who had his own accomplished architectural career, died Friday in Frankfurt at age 83. His death was announced by his architectural firm, AS & P, in Frankfurt. It said the cause was complications of surgery he had undergone after falling at his home.

The younger Mr. Speer’s impact on urban landscapes was ultimately far greater than that of his father, whose architectural plans for the Third Reich were never realized. Albert Jr.’s firm designed master plans for Expo 2000 in Hanover, Germany; the Nigerian capital city, Abuja; and a so-called Automobile City on the outskirts of Shanghai, close to a large Volkswagen factory.

He had a particularly strong impact on Frankfurt, his home city, where he served as an adviser to the municipal government for many years and worked on master plans for the European Central Bank, as well as for a new section of the city known as the Europaviertel, which was built on land reclaimed from railroad freight yards.

Speer was 12 when his father was convicted in Nuremburg of “war crimes” and sentenced to 20 years in prison, where he was for much of his son’s childhood.

In a 2010 interview with German newspaper Sueddeutsche Zeitung he said: “I’m always being asked about my father. It’s annoying. I have tried my whole life to distance myself from my father, but it’s hard for young journalists to accept that.

“From the perspective of a young boy,” he recalls, “Hitler was a nice uncle to me. Visits to Hitler were joyous events. I was allowed to play with the dogs, I got sweets. ”

Professionally, Speer Jr. concentrated on designing environmentally sound and energy-efficient buildings. Many of his projects, however, were never implemented.

In preparation for the Beijing Olympics in 2008, Speer was criticized for a design that looked too similar to that of his fathers. “What I’m trying to do to Beijing is to take a 2,000-year-old city and move it into the future.”

His firm was selected to design the stadiums for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Adolf Hitler: In the Thicket of the Forest at Artois, 1916

youngahfront.jpg
In the Thicket of the Forest at Artois
(Direct English Translation)

It was in the thicket of the Artois Wood.
Deep in the trees, on blood-soaked ground,
Lay stretched a wounded German warrior,
And his cries rang out in the night.
In vain … no echo answered his plea …
Will he bleed to death like a beast,
That shot in the gut dies alone?

Then suddenly …
Heavy steps approach from the right
He hears how they stamp on the forest floor …
And new hope springs from his soul.
And now from the left …
And now from both sides …

Two men approach his miserable bed
A German it is, and a Frenchman.
And each watches the other with distrustful glance,
And threatening they aim their weapons.
The German warrior asks:
“What do you do here?”
“I was touched by the needy one’s call for help.”

Nordic National Socialists March Through Gothenburg

nordic.jpg

According to the police, around 50 people participated in the march through central Gothenburg, many of them waving Nordic Resistance Movement (Nordiska motståndsrörelsen, NMR) flags.

Media reports indicate that a minor fight broke out between a antifa counter demonstrator and some of the march participants, but police quickly intervened and calmed the situation.

“We have not made any arrests,” police spokesperson Jenny Widén said.

The demonstration, for which the patriots did not have a permit, was first reported to the police at 12.30pm. Some two hours later, the crowds had dispersed.

The true nationalist NMR group has announced plans to stage a march near a synagogue in Gothenburg on the Jewish holiday Yom Kippur. Sweden’s main organization for Jews is appealing the police decision to allow the September 30th demonstration to go on as planned.
