Adolf Hitler on ‘Nation and Race’

MK_Dalton

Walking around in the garden of nature, most men have the conceit to think that they know everything. Yet almost all are blind to one of the outstanding principles that Nature employs in her work: the inner separation of the species of all living beings on Earth.

Even a superficial glance shows that nature follows a rigid basic law in which all lifeforms are restricted to definite limits when propagating and multiplying their own kind. Each animal mates only with one of its own species. […] Deviations from this law take place only in exceptional circumstances.

Every crossing between two breeds that aren’t quite equal yields a product that holds an intermediate place between the levels of the two parents. […] Such mating contradicts the will of nature towards the selective improvements of life in general. […] The stronger must dominate and not mate with the weaker, thus sacrificing its own greatness. […] The consequence of this urge for racial purity, universally valid in nature, is not only the sharply-defined outward distinction between the races, but also their uniform character in themselves.

If the case were different, progress would cease, and even regression would occur. Since the inferior always outnumber the superior, the former would always increase more rapidly … the end would be that the best would be driven into the background. Therefore a corrective measure in favor of the better must intervene.

THE RESULT OF RACIAL MIXING

[If superior individuals and races mix with weaker ones,] all [natures’s] efforts, throughout hundreds of thousands of years, to establish an evolutionary higher type of being, might be rendered futile.

History provides countless proofs of this law. […]

MAN AND IDEA

Here we meet an insolent pacifist objection, one that is Jewish in its inspiration: “Man can control even nature!” […]

The real truth is that, not only has man failed to overcome nature in any sphere whatsoever, but that at best he has merely succeeded in getting hold of and lifting a tiny corner of the enormous veil she has spread over her eternal mysteries and secrets. He never creates anything. All he can do is to discover something. […]

And not only that! Certain ideas are even confined to certain people. This holds particularly true with regard to those ideas that have roots not in objective scientific truth but in the world of feeling. […] Such ideas owe their existence to the creative powers of man’s imagination.

Now then, a necessary condition for the maintenance of such ideas is the existence of certain races and certain types of men. […] our planet once moved through the ether for millions of years without men, and it may do so once again—if we forget that, wherever humans have reached a superior level of existence, it wasn’t due to the ideas of a few crazy visionaries, but by knowing and rigorously applying the iron laws of nature.

RACE AND CULTURE

All that we admire in the world today—science, art, technology, and inventions—are the products of the creative activities of a few peoples; and perhaps even originally of one race. The maintenance of civilization is wholly dependent on them. Should they perish, all that makes this Earth beautiful will descend with them into the grave.

[…]

All the great civilizations of the past decayed because the originally creative race died out, as a result of poisoning of the blood. The ultimate cause of such a decline is the fact that the people forgot that all culture depends on men, and not the reverse.

[…]

He who would live must fight. And he who doesn’t wish to fight in this world of permanent struggle has no right to live. [A famous sentence that is widely quoted.]

Such a saying may sound harsh—and so it is! Yet far harsher is the fate of he who believes that he can overcome nature, and thus in reality insults her. Distress, misery, and disease are her replies!

THE ARYAN AS FOUNDER OF CULTURE

Every manifestation of human culture, every product of art, science, and technical skill that we see today, are almost exclusively the creative product of the Aryan. This very fact fully justifies the conclusion that it was the Aryan alone who founded a superior type of humanity; therefore he represents the archetype of what we understand by the term ‘man.’ He is the Prometheus of mankind, from whose shining brow the divine spark of genius has at all times flashed forth […]

Just as in our daily life the so-called man of genius needs a particular occasion, and sometimes indeed a special stimulus, to make him shine, so too with racial genius in the life of peoples. In the monotony of everyday life, even men of significance seem just like the others, and don’t rise above the average of their fellow men. But as soon as such men find themselves in a situation in which others stray or become hopeless, the humble and ordinary man reveals traits of genius—often to the amazement of those who had, until then, only known him in the pettiness of everyday life. That’s why a prophet only seldom counts for anything in his own country.

[…]

As stated already, this applies not merely to the individual but also the race.

[…]

[T]he most obvious example of this truth is furnished by that race that has been, and still is, the standard-bearer of human progress: the Aryans. As soon as fate confronts them with special circumstances, their powers begin to develop progressively and to be manifested in tangible forms. […] Had it not been possible to employ members of the inferior race, the Aryans would never have been in a position to take the first steps toward a future culture. Similarly, without the help of certain suitable animals that they were able to tame, they would never have come to a technology that has subsequently enabled them to do without these beasts. The phrase, ‘The Moor has done his work, the Moor can go’ has, unfortunately, a deep meaning. For thousands of years, the horse has been the faithful servant of man, helping to lay the foundations of human progress: […] without its collaboration, man could scarcely have come to the stage of development where he is today.

[…]

It was no accident that the first forms of culture arose where the Aryan came into contact with inferior races, subjugated them, and forced them to obey his command. The members of the inferior race became the first technical instrument in the service of a developing culture.

EFFECTS OF BLOOD-MIXING

Thus the road that the Aryan had to follow was clearly marked. As a conqueror, he subjugated inferior races and turned their physical powers into organized channels under his own leadership, forcing them to follow his will and aims. By imposing on them a useful, though hard, activity, he not only spared their lives but probably made their lives easier than they had been with their former so-called ‘freedom.’ While he ruthlessly maintained his position as their master, he not only remained master but he also maintained and advanced human culture. […]

As soon, however, as his subject began to rise up and approach the level of their conqueror—probably at the point when they began to use his language—the dividing wall between master and servant broke down. The Aryan neglected his own racial purity and thereby lost the right to live in the paradise that he himself had created. He became submerged in the racial mixture and gradually lost his cultural creativeness, until he finally became, both mentally and physically, more like the subjugated aborigines rather than his own ancestors.

Thus cultures and empires declined, yielding their places to new formations.

Blood mixture and the subsequent racial deterioration are the only causes of the decline of ancient civilizations. It’s never by war that nations are ruined, but by the loss of their powers of resistance, which are contained only in pure racial blood.

Everything in this world that is not racially good is like chaff.

Every historical event in the world is nothing but a manifestation of theinstinct of racial self-preservation, whether for better or worse.

[What I take from this regarding where the Aryan race is today: As a group, we have lost our Will—our all-important Will—to uphold our supremacy. As we gave more and more rights to the less developed, racially distinct people, and allowed them more migration and social, as well as business mixing, we’ve been overwhelmed and over-ruled by the “equality” arguments and the human rights arguments. After human rights came civil rights. Now we find that those to whom we acted in kindness and let down our guard are now calling for our heads, and seeking to overtake us and rule over us. And we wonder why we’re not the people we used to be. Ever it has been so. Hitler warned us. More than any other single factor (and there are others), it was the Jew who engineered this loss of Will in Europe and Anglo-America.]

To be continued …

Letter From Ursula Haverbeck On Her Upcoming Hamburg Trial

The lovely Ursula is now in prison in Bielefeld serving a two-year sentence, but is also having to defend herself from another charge brought by the prosecutor in the Hamburg court.

Regarding myself, I am not a University professor; I am not a Chemist; I am not a technician; Like the judge and prosecutor, I am dependent on the statements of witnesses and experts with regard to the nature and character of Auschwitz.

But for twelve years now I have travelled from one end of the BRD (Federal Repubic of Germany) to the other in order to participate in the trials of comrades and in my own; trials based upon paragraph 130 [Race hatred laws] of the German criminal code. By this experience, I have been able to gain a deep isight into the nature of the judicial process here in the Federal Republic.

Many judges, – including German judges – regard paragraph 130 as incompatible with Article 5 of our Basic Law [which guarantees Freedom of Speech and enquiry, etc.]. Perhaps even you have your doubts, Lady Judge [a woman judge has been assigned the case].The case involves crimes “committed” by the National Socialists. It is undestood to concern the Holocaust. The question, as to whether the Holocaust was actually committed, may not be put.  The question itself is already a crime, because the crime is obvious.

By this means a “Stop” sign is deliberately put in place to thwart the scientific research of  History: it is forbidden to proceed any further; it is forbidden to conduct research into this subject. Clearly what we  see here is a symptom of  weakness [of the case against us]: a subjective assertion becomes the thing claimed or assumed [a postulate].

This trial is not a conventional trial, that is, a trial to consider whether a crime has been committed. Here we have two contrary, opposed opinions, each based on received but contradictory sources. Neither of the two parties, neither the prosecution nor the defendant has personally, directly been victim of an alleged  crime. So it is not a question here of crimes but of opinions. It is a question of seeking the truth of a historical happening / event. That can not be the task of jurists; that is the task of independent historians.

Neither the Memorial centres [at Auschwitz and elsewhere], nor the SPIEGEL editor[Fritjof Meyer] have ever been charged with “denial of the Holocaust”. On the contrary it is said that the Spiegel editor verified (that is, he reported truthfully), which is not a criminal offence. Therefore how does it come, that to this very day German citizens who question the Six Million victims of the gas-chambers, are dragged into the courts and condemned to fines or prison sentences ? That has got nothing to do with a proper legal system. That is pure arbitrariness.  But how could it have come to such a state ?

It is all due to the fact that paragraph 130 is incompatible with the Basic Law.

The question of whether Auschwitz was an extermination camp or a work-camp, can not be decided by this court. One should not forget that for forty years Katyn was taken to be a crime committed by the Germans. Then the Russian government handed over to the Polish government the proof that Stalin had ordered the crime; and so it was clearly proven that the Bolsheviks had committed the crime.

Lastly here is an indication that Jews and Israelis – two of whom I know personally- long for and  yearn to be liberated from the Holocaust and from the chosen people. Gilad Atzmon, a renowned, Jewish saxophonist and author made the following public statement at a meeting in Bochum in the year 2005:

“Put an end now to your guilt-complex. The Holocaust is an invention of the American and Israeli secret services.”

Now that is an opinion that may be false or true. But under no circumstances can it be a crime. That would be the end of a free, liberal state based upon the rule of law. We should be less antagonistic to dissenters and deal with them with a more tender understanding. The truth does not belong to any one person. But we all have a duty to seek the truth.

It is now high time, 72 years after the end of the Second World War that we free ourselves from this “mental prison”. What Avraham Burg the former Speaker at the Israeli Knesset [parliament] urged upon his fellows in Israel, applies equally for the Justice-system in the Federal Republic of Germany. We are making our selves the laughing stock of the world. We are making ourselves unworthy of serious consideration so long as we continue to sacrifice the Rule of Law to paragraph 130 [the Racial hatred law], and against all Law and conscience force German judges to send guiltless men and women to prison.

Ursula Haverbeck.

RUNIC SYMBOLS AND MEANINGS OF THE SS- TOTENKOPF HONOR RING

TRIANGLE AND SIGRUNE- The sigrune was a German symbol for victory. The triangle or Triag points upwards and was the symbol for life. The three represents the cycle of life (The Beginning of life, the future of one’s life, and the ending of one’s life.) A sigrune is a Nordic sign for Victory which was used in ancient Germany as a greeting. It is the origination of the Adolf Hitler salute better known as the Hail Victory or SIEG HEIL salute.

HAGAL RUNE- The Hagal Rune is an asterisk inside a six sided hexagon. The asterisk has six lines shooting from the center in all directions. The Hagal Rune is an expression of ones inner strength to overcome all problems and adversity. It was also used to instill an inner strength in the German people so that they would be fearless; enabling them to conquer the world. Also, the Hagal Rune could be used to form any of the eighteen symbols of the Nordic Runic Alphabet.

SWASTIKA- The Swastika or “Fryfros”  is an ancient symbol of eternal life and good luck. Also, it symbolizes the GIBOR RUNE – This means: GIB – give and OR- descendant. It was used as a sign of prosperity and the survival and future of the whole German race. The Swastika’s true meaning represents the German people being one with “God and enternity”.

CIRCLE – DUAL SIGRUNES AND TYRUNE – The dual sigrunes was the symbol of the SS-Schutzstaffel.  The many symbols within the circle had a meaning for one to be “FEARLESS, TRUE, BRAVE, that DEATH CANNOT KILL. ” TYR was the ” God of War “and OL the sword was the spirit. Both are represented in the circle TYROS and come from Runic Alphabet.

Adolf Hitler On Causes Of The Collapse Part 4

MK_Dalton

RELIGIOUS CONDITIONS

All these symptoms of decay must be attributed to the lack of a definite and uniformly accepted worldview, and the subsequent general uncertainty of attitude toward the great questions of the time. This accounts for the habit of doing everything half-way, beginning with the educational system, the reluctance to undertake responsibilities, and finally, the cowardly tolerance of recognized abuses. Humanitarian garbage became the fashion. And in weakly submitting to these aberrations and sparing individual feelings, the future of millions was sacrificed. [Exactly where we are today, and increasingly so since 1945.]

An examination of the religious situation before the war shows that the general process of disintegration was growing. […] While both Christian denominations maintain missions in Asia and Africa in order to win new followers—with only modest success compared to the growth of Islam—these same denominations were losing millions and millions of adherents at home in Europe. These former adherents either gave up all religion or adopted their own interpretation. The consequences, particularly in morality, are not good.

[O]ur world would be inconceivable without the practical existence of a religious faith. The great masses of a nation are not philosophers. For the masses of people, faith is the only basis of morality. The various substitutes that have been offered haven’t shown any results that would justify replacing existing faiths. […] The purely intellectual idea is, of itself, a variable thing that is subject to endless interpretations. It’s only through dogma that it has a precise and concrete form, without which religion couldn’t become a living faith. […]

A political leader shouldn’t estimate the value of a religion by taking its shortcomings into account, but rather by virtue of a demonstrably better substitute. Until such a substitute is available, only fools or criminals would think of abolishing that which exists. […] In the conflict [between religion and so-called exact science], victory will nearly always be on the side of science, though perhaps after a hard struggle. And religion will thus suffer heavily in the eyes of those who can’t penetrate beyond mere superficial knowledge.

POLITICAL MISUSE OF RELIGION

But the greatest damage of all has come from the misuse of religion as a means to serve political interests. […] The impudent liars who do this profess their faith before the whole world to stentorian tones, so that all sinners may hear—not that they are ready to die for it, but rather that they may live all the better. They are ready to sell their faith for a single political swindle. For ten parliamentary mandates they would ally themselves with the Marxists, who are the mortal foes of all religion. […] If religious life in pre-war Germany left a bad taste in many mouths, it was because Christianity was abused by a so-called ‘Christian’ party. They shamelessly attempted to identify the Catholic faith with a political party.

PARLIAMENTARY HALF-MEASURES

Even before the war, the institution that should have represented the strength of the Reich was recognized by many as its greatest weakness: the parliament, the Reichstag. Here, cowardice and irresponsibility were completely unified.

[…]

From the immense number of devastating evils that were due either directly or indirectly to the parliament, I’ll pick one of the most typical, that was the most irresponsible of all time: the terrible half-heartedness and weakness of the political leaders in conducting the internal and external affairs of the Reich. This was primarily attributable to the action of the Reichstag, and was one of the principal causes of the political collapse. […]

The foreign policy of the Reich in the matter of alliances was an example of such half-heartedness. They wanted to maintain peace, but in doing so they steered straight into war.

Their Polish policy was also carried out by half-measures. One merely irritated without ever finishing anything. It resulted neither in a German triumph nor Polish conciliation, and it made enemies of the Russians.

They tried to solve the Alsace-Lorraine question through half-measures. Instead of crushing the French hydra’s head once and for all with a brutal fist, and then granting Alsace-Lorraine equal rights, they did neither. Nor could they have done otherwise, for the biggest parties had among their ranks the biggest traitors.

PARLIAMENTARY CRIMES AGAINST THE ARMY

But all this would have been bearable, if the half-heartedness hadn’t extended to that one power that was ultimately responsible for the survival of the Reich: the army.

[…] On the most miserable of pretexts, these parliamentary henchmen filched from the hands of the nation its weapons of self-defense—the only thing protecting the liberty and independence of our people. If the graves of Flanders were to open today, bloodstained accusers would arise: hundreds of thousands of our best German youth, who, poorly-or-half-trained, were driven into the arms of death by those conscienceless parliamentary criminals. […]

While the Jews, in their Marxist and democratic press, spread the colossal falsehood about ‘German militarism’ throughout the world and tried to incriminate Germany by every possible means, at the same time the Marxist and democratic parties obstructed measures that were necessary for the adequate training of our national defenses. […]

The German people lost the struggle for the freedom and independence of their country because of the half-hearted and defective policy employed during peacetime, in the organization and training of the defensive strength of the Fatherland.

FAILED NAVAL POLICY

The number of recruits trained for the land forces was too small. But the same half-heartedness was shown in regard to the navy, and it made this weapon of national self-preservation more or less worthless. Unfortunately, even the naval authorities themselves were infected with this spirit of half-heartedness. The tendency to build all ships somewhat smaller than the British didn’t show much foresight, and less genius. A fleet that can’t achieve the same numerical strength of the enemy should compensate by the superior fighting power of the individual ships. It’s superior fighting power that counts, and not any sort of traditional ‘quality.” […]

If they neglected superior artillery power and speed, it was because of their fundamentally false so-called ‘principle of risk.’ The naval authorities from the very beginning renounced the principle of attack, and thus had to follow a defensive policy. But by this attitude they also renounced any chance of final success, which can only be achieved by attack.

[…]

As already emphasized, army leadership didn’t allow themselves to be led astray by such fundamentally erroneous ideas. Ludendorff, who was then a colonel in the General Staff, led a desperate struggle against the criminal half-heartedness with which the Reichstag treated the most vital problems of the nation. In most cases, it voted against them.

[…]

At the same time, higher government authorities knew little or nothing of the value and nature of propaganda. Only the Jews knew that, by an able and persistent use of propaganda, heaven itself can be presented as hell, and vice versa, the most miserable kind of life as paradise. Only he knew this, and acted accordingly. But the German, or rather his government, hadn’t the slightest idea of this.

GERMAN ADVANTAGES

The foremost advantage was the fact that, alone among the European nations, the German nation made the strongest effort to preserve the national character of its economic structure; for this reason, it was less subject than others to control by international finance. And yet, this was a dangerous advantage, one that later turned out to be the chief cause of the World War.

[…] we must single out three institutions that were constant sources of regeneration.

First, the state form as such, and the manner in which it was developed in modern Germany. […]

[In spite of all it’s defects, which Hitler enumerates] the monarchical form guarantees stability in the entire state leadership, and safeguards public offices from the speculative turmoil of ambitious politicians. Furthermore, the dignified tradition […] and the fact that the whole corps of officials, and the army in particular, are raised above the level of party obligations. […] another was that the supreme rulership of the state was embodied in the monarch as an individual person, and whose example of personal responsibility was stronger than that of any anonymous parliamentary majority.

THE ARMY—AN IRREPLACEABLE SCHOOL

During that process of disintegration that was slowly extending throughout the social order, the most positive force of resistance was the army. This was the strongest school of the German nation, and for that reason, the hatred of our enemies was directed against this buttress of national freedom and independence. The strongest testimony in favor of this unique institution is the fact that it was derided, hated, combated, and also feared, by all inferior peoples. The fact that the international exploiters of our people, who gathered at Versailles, directed their enmity especially against the old German army proved once again that it deserved to be regarded as the defender of our national freedom against the power of the stock exchange. Without this warning power, the intentions of Versailles would have long since been carried out. There is only one word to express what the German people owe to this army: everything.

[…]

The army trained its men with a spirit of idealism and devotion to the Fatherland, while greed and materialism dominated everywhere else. The army united a people who were divided into classes; and in this respect had only one defect, which was the voluntary one-year military service. It was a mistake because the principle of absolute equality was thereby violated. Those who had a better education were thus placed outside the setting of their general environment. […]

But the greatest credit earned by the army was that, at a time when the individual person counted for nothing and the majority was everything, it placed individual personal values above majority values. Confronted with the Jewish-democratic idea of a blind faith in numbers, the army defended its belief in personality.

THE INCOMPARABLE CIVIL SERVICE

There was a third institution of value that has to be placed beside the monarchy and the army; this was the civil service of the Old Reich.

Germany was the best organized and best administered country in the world. There may have been objections to the bureaucratic red tape, but from this point of view, the other countries were no better; and often worse. […] What other country in the world possessed a better-organized and administered business enterprise than the German State Railways? It was left to the revolution to destroy this exemplary organization […]

Efficiency and capability have been replaced by party ties, and independence of character and initiative are more of a hindrance than a help.

STATE AUTHORITY

The wonderful might and power of the old Reich was based on the monarchical state-form, the army, and the civil service. On these three foundations rested that great strength that’s now entirely lacking: State authority! […] In the long run, systems of government are not maintained by threats of violence but on the belief of the people in the merits and sincerity of those who administer and promote the public interests.

Though in the pre-war period, certain grave evils tended to infect and corrode the inner strength of the nation, it must be remembered that the other states suffered even more than Germany from these drawbacks. And yet they didn’t fail and breakdown when the time of crisis came. If we remember further that those defects in pre-war Germany were outweighed by great positive qualities, we’ll have to look elsewhere for the effective cause of the collapse. And this is actually the case.

The ultimate and most profound reason for the German decline is the fact that the racial problem was ignored*, and that its importance in the historical development of nations wasn’t grasped. Events that take place in the life of nations are not due to chance, but are the natural results of the effort to conserve and multiply the species and the race—even if people aren’t conscious of the inner motives of their conduct.

Jakiw Palij Sent To Germany On A Stretcher

I have written two articles over the past couple years about the never ending hatred  and harassment aimed at this 95 year old man, and it would seem as though the Jewish lobby finally had their way, not surprising under this American President.

At the order of President Donald Trump, Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents removed 95-year-old Jakiw Palij from his Queens, New York, home on Monday.

“President Trump commends his Administration’s comprehensive actions, especially ICE’s actions, in removing this war criminal from United States soil,” the statement read. “Despite a court ordering his deportation in 2004, past administrations were unsuccessful in removing Palij. To protect the promise of freedom for Holocaust survivors and their families, President Trump prioritized the removal of Palij. Through extensive negotiations, President Trump and his team secured Palij’s deportation to Germany and advanced the United States’ collaborative efforts with a key European ally.”

jakiw-palij-abc-exclusive-ml-180821_hpMain_4x3_992

Looking frail with missing front teeth visible through his white beard, the only noise he made was a pained howl as agents hoisted him from his wheelchair onto the ambulance stretcher.

It’s unclear if Palij will face prosecution in Germany, which had previously maintained that they were not in a position to accept him because he’s not a German citizen.

Palij, who is Ukranian-born, had been living in the Jackson Heights, Queens neighborhood for 13 years. Protesters have regularly gathered outside of Palij’s house and the push for his deportation has garnered bipartisan support. In 2017, every congressional member of the New York delegation wrote a letter to former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson urging him to deport Palij before he dies.

Shameful, despicable, vengeful hate of the chosen people.

Hackers Change New York City Into ‘JEWTROPOLIS’

A map vandal transformed New York City into ‘Jewtropolis’ on a variety of apps, leaving residents both confused and outraged.

New Yorkers quickly discovered the change on Thursday morning as they opened up everything from Snapchat and the Weather Channel to Citi Bike.

The apps Jump Bikes, StreetEasy, and the real estate website Zillow were also affected.

Numerous users posted photos of the maps on social media, tagging the companies to report the hack and demanding that it be quickly addressed.

It was soon discovered that each of the hacked companies used the service Mapbox, a San Francisco-based start-up which provides custom online maps for websites and applications that also include Foursquare, Lonely Planet, and Evernote.

More than 420 million people around the world use maps created by the company. But it wasn’t Mapbox that was directly hacked.

The company crowdsources mapping data from OpenStreetMap, which describes itself as ‘a collaborative project to create a free editable map of the world’.

MapBox calls OpenStreetMap the ‘Wikipedia of maps’.

‘It’s a project founded on the belief that when data is open, everyone can work together to build a map,’ the company explains on its website.

‘Anyone can quickly add roads and buildings to keep up with a changing road.’

A spokesperson for Snapchat revealed on Thursday that OpenStreetMap had been vandalized.

‘Snap Map, similar to other apps, relies on third party mapping data from OpenStreetMap,’ they said in a statement to Buzzfeed.

‘This defacement is deeply offensive and entirely contrary to our values, and we want to apologize to any members of our community who saw it.’

‘We are working with our partner Mapbox to fix this as quickly as possible.’

Fears Of A Far-Right Mole In German Police

Demonstrations in Chemnitz after two immigrants were arrested following a fatal stabbing

The leak of an arrest warrant which names one of the chief suspects in a stabbing that riots in Germany this week has raised fears that the country’s police may have been infiltrated by the far-Right.

The confidential document, which was shared by far-Right groups on social media, names a 22-year-old Iraqi, one of two immigrants being held on suspicion of stabbing a German-Cuban man to death in the eastern city of Chemnitz at the weekend.

Giving the Roman salute and chanting: “A dead foreigner for every dead German”.

Police confirmed on Wednesday that the leaked document was genuine and said they had opened an investigation into suspected “violation of official secrets”.

There are fears of possible vigilante attacks after the leaked document gave the full name and address of one of the arrested men.

study last year found that attitudes carried over from former communist East Germany have made people in today’s east far more likely to be patriotic. The report concluded that eastern Germans are socialized to have an “exaggerated need for harmony, ‘purity’ and order” as well as a “collective, overwhelmingly positive and ethnically pure identity.” It also highlighted a “selective culture of memory,” in which eastern Germans repress negative memories of the communist past, fail to come to terms with the legacy of  anti-Semitism and tend to blame foreigners for social and economic problems.

The study was slammed by Saxony’s ruling Christian Democratic party (CDU) and months later disavowed by Iris Gleicke, who was then the federal government commissioner for eastern German affairs and had commissioned it. Despite criticism of the methodology, the findings were backed up by researchers in the field in eastern Germany.
