“THE CRIME OF OUR AGE – DEDICATED TO THE CHRISTIAN PEOPLE OF AMERICA: In the firm belief that the truth will arouse them to action.” Published by American Christian Historian, Ludwig A. Fritsch, Ph. D in 1947, revised 1949. This booklet was published in moral outrage concerning the “crimes against humanity” being perpetrated by the American government against the defenceless German people after the alleged conclusion of World War II by the victorious ALL LIES.
The virtual decapitation of the German Government without any offer of a peace treaty, the Morganthau Plan to starve to death millions of Germans, Eisenhower’s Death Camps for the surrendered German forces and years of enslavement of many more, the forced mass expulsions of millions of Germans from their ancestral homes, the mass rape of millions of German girls and woman, military occupation, mass theft of everything of value, and the Nuremberg Show Trials, were just a continuation of the war which the Bankster Gangster puppet Roosevelt had ultimately started, while claiming to be neutral.
Here, however, was a Christian Theologian and Historian of German descent, speaking out in America for the defenceless Germans! Even while apparently taking much of the Victor’s narrative of the war relatively at face value and Dr. Fritsch still believed that America was lied into the war, and strongly condemned what was being done to the German people in the aftermath. Even taking into account the crimes he speaks of, allegedly committed by “Hitler and the Nazis”, he felt that these were minuscule in comparison to what had been done, and was still being done to the Germans, long after hostilities had supposedly ended.
His criticism, however, was not limited to the criminal conduct and the barbaric anti-Christian actions and policies of the U.S. Government. He also chastised the Christian churches of America for not speaking out in protest, and for doing little or nothing to relieve the suffering of Christian Germany, which had been the central defender of the faith in Europe for over 1,000 years. He called for “Justice for Germans”.
Dr. Fritsch also, however, levelled sharp criticism at German-Americans, which he said made up fully one third of the U.S. population, for having not spoken up to prevent U.S. involvement in the war, and for doing nothing to relieve the suffering of their cousins in Europe, including the millions of ethnic Germans in Eastern Europe who were being driven out of their homelands.
Some readers may take exception to his reading of American history (or portions thereof) and others may call some of his perspectives “racist”. I take exception to a number of the statements he made concerning Hitler and WWII, however, these does not really detract from his overall thesis. Remember, this was written some 65 years ago. Fritsch was not blessed with all of facts we possess today about the Hitler, National Socialism and World War II. He obviously did not understand that Hitler himself had always called himself a Christian, and that National Socialism (as I have pointed out often) was Christian based, though some of you out there hate to hear that. C’est la vie.
While Fritsch understood that the “Versailles Dictates” were criminal, resulting in untold misery for the Germans, and that this had no doubt spawned the rise of Hitler and the NSDAP, Fritsch nonetheless condemned Hitler, in the sense that, he believed him to be a “self-appointed saviour of Germany”, and thus, that had “placed himself above God”. In fact, Hitler and his party were duly elected. His popularity and that of the party continued to grow rapidly thereafter, as high unemployment rapidly diminished, an economic miracle unfolded, hunger, poverty and despair were eliminated, social chaos gave way to “law and order”, and German honour and dignity were being restored, not to mention, German culture. Hitler united a greatly divided people and gave them substance, not just hope or empty promises.
It was the average German people themselves who had prayed for a saviour, for salvation from the nightmare that was the Weimar Republic, and for relief from the chains of enslavement of the Versailles Dictate. They also feared Bolshevism. It was they who, in desperation, turned to Hitler to be their saviour, not in terms of their individual souls, but for physical salvation and spiritual renewal. He was the embodiment of the German nation in one man, who could lead them out of the wilderness and into national salvation.
Hitler delivered what he had promised, and thus, he “delivered his people” from evil. He did what 13 years of democratic chatter boxes of the dozens of parties did not or could not do. He did nothing for his personal prestige or enrichment. Everything he did he did for the people, and that is why they loved him and would fight for him and for the Germany he built to the bitter end. Was that evil? No, he was a “God send” for Germans! Compare that to the record of Roosevelt in so-called “Christian America”. By the way, Church membership grew under Hitler and he also instituted payroll taxes to help support the churches.
So, those misconceptions by Dr. Fritsch notwithstanding, here are a number of his admonishments to the Clergy of America:
“TELL OUR PEOPLE, that it is not true that Germany is the most warring nation. The historical fact is that she is the most peace loving of all the great nations because she waged the least number of wars.”
“TELL OUR PEOPLE that our propagandists are the greatest misleaders and thus the greatest hate-mongers, for they claimed contrary to their better knowledge, in thousands of radio speeches and articles, that the Germans are the most “war- loving” nation and that they started the two World Wars.”
“TELL OUR PEOPLE, that they were belied and misled by the satanic propaganda that the Germans are aggressors. A look at the map shows the real aggressor nations. The formerly 100 million German people in the heart of Europe live in a land which is not quite as large as Texas with her 3 million inhabitants ! Had the Germans been aggressors they, too, would have an empire such as England, France, Russia, little Holland and as we Americans have!”
“TELL OUR PEOPLE for truths sake, that we Americans, in comparison with the Germans are a more “war-loving” and more “cruel” nation. It is a historical fact that we in our short national history waged comparatively more wars than the Germans did in their 2000 years history. We conquered this great and blessed country from the Atlantic to the Pacific and from the Gulf of Mexico to Canada (a territory about 20 times the size of Germany!), took everything we wanted unpunished and exterminated the aboriginal inhabitants by starvation, whisky, and disease.”
“TELL OUR PEOPLE, that the Germans never had any intention of conquering the world, as confirmed by General G. C. Marshall and the Nuremberg lynch trial!”
“TELL OUR PEOPLE, the Germans never interfered in our affairs as we waged aggressive wars against the Indians, Spain, Mexico etc. and took everything we wanted”
“TELL OUR PEOPLE, that the Germans never were our enemies but our friends and benefactors in our whole national history; that we could not be the world’s greatest and richest nation without German blood and sweat; that there is German blood flowing in the veins of every third American!”
“TELL OUR PEOPLE, that the Germans never wanted war with Us, but it was we who set out twice to destroy them because our leaders feared that German ingenuity and diligence would conquer the world in a peaceful way’.”
“TELL OUR PEOPLE, that we were lied into this war through Roosevelt’s “smart way” over Japan, not on ideological grounds but out of greediness and power politics, just as we are now stirred up against Russia not because of Communism, but because of the oil fields in Iraq and Iran, and the great might of the Russians!”
“TELL OUR PEOPLE, what Oliver Lyttlet, on British Minister of Production, told the Chamber of Commerce of America June 20, 1944, as reported by the United Press: “Japan was provoked into attacking the United States at Pearl Harbor. It is a travesty on history ever to say that America was forced into the war.” And how did our propagandists, led by President Roosevelt, misuse the “sneak attack” story and thus stirred hatred against Japan?”
“TELL OUR PEOPLE, what cruelties our troops committed against the heart of the world, how our flyers destroyed everything mercilessly, killed millions of civilians, how enlisted men and officers have stolen and raped, how our government set up a systematic starving campaign, how millions of innocent Germans were driven from their centuries old homes into death by freezing and starving!”
“TELL OUR PEOPLE, that before God and history, the had of responsibility for the chaotic conditions and the indescribable misery all over the world rests on our conscience: because we played havoc with prehistoric brutality and saved Bolshevism making it a world menace. Without our intervention there would have been peace and order in Europe and the world long ago !”
“TELL OUR PEOPLE, how hypocritical and selfish we act forbidding non-Americans through the “Monroe Doctrine” to intervene in the affairs of the Western Hemisphere, while we because of our power mix into the affairs of all the other nations and continents !”
“TELL OUR PEOPLE, that after we have destroyed the bulwark of Christianity and of the white race, the great stabilizer in world affairs, the biggest educated and most cultured nation on earth, after we have pierced the heart of Europe – now we have to shoulder the great responsibilities for all that, for which Germany stood in all her glorious history in the last thousand years. We have to become a militaristic nation to be enabled to defend the most precious treasures of mankind: Christian culture and civilization!”
“TELL OUR PEOPLE what the most famous American historian, Professor Harry E. Barnes, says: “President Truman has well said that constructive public acts must be based on truth. It is too bad somebody could not have whispered a little truth into his ear before he left for Potsdam. There is little prospect that a structure erected wholly on lies in 1945 will endure any better than the one that was wholly based on lies in 1919!” ”
“TELL OUR PEOPLE to study “PEARL HARBOR, THE STORY OF THE SECRET WAR” by George Morgenstern; “HISTORY’S MOST TERRIFYING PEACE” by Prof. Austin J. App Ph.D.; “GRUESOME HARVEST’ by Ralph F. Keeling, of the “Institute of American Economics” in Chicago, and “THE PLANNED FAMINE” by A. O. Tittmann, in order to learn the truth about the chaotic conditions which our leaders brought deliberately over mankind!”
Roosevelt knew exactly what he meant when be demanded “unconditional surrender!” According to his barbaric interpretation that term included the right of the victor to dispose of everything, man and material, property and spiritual goods. The patents and secrets alone, which our troops have stolen and brought over here, counterbalance the billions we spent for waging war. The kidnapping and forced importation of German scientists and technicians to the East and West is taken for granted. – In the presence of God I ask our nation, I ask you, ministers of the Gospel: Did the Germans in all our histories ever inflict such injuries on us as we did in the two World Wars sent still do inflict on them? What wrong did the German nation do to us Americans that we punished them twice in a generation in the most cruel and inhuman way such as history never saw before? Do you call that American gratitude for all the hard work sent faithfulness by which German people here built up our country and won our victories?”
Roosevelt demanded “unconditional surrender.”
“This terrible term, born of a cruel heart, can be defined in two ways: the old barbaric one according to which the conqueror has the power to kill, destroy, lot, rape, enslave, starve, exterminate; and the Christian definition, to be as a victor magnanimous and kind to the beaten foe, to win him as a friend. Our democratic administration accepted the Roosevelt-Morgenthau plan which calls for the first conception in the most cruel and sadistic form.
Now, if we want to be just the shadow of a “Christian” nation then it is our duty before God and history to provide our unconditionally surrendered” enemies, after we destroyed and looted everything and thus made them unable to take care of themselves, with all the necessities of life until such time as they will be enabled to take over. The responsibility for the misery and chaos in the world today is ours because we decided both World Wars on the wrong side and thus destroyed the only great stabilizer and bulwark of civilization. It is high time that we see the consequences of our deeds and fall on our knees be searching the merciful Lord for forgiveness of our sins against mankind. It is high time for us to get rid of our hatemongers and hypocrites and repent, ere it is too late!”
One last thing…
GERMAN-AMERICA’S BETRAYAL OF THE MOTHERLAND
“Most tragic of all, however, is the fact that our Volksgenossen, as soon as they acquire wealth, reputation and influence, betray their race and work for the enemy. We need think only of the Wilkies, the Kaisers, the Rockefellers, the Astors, of the Eisenhowers, Eichelbergers, Wedemeyers, Nimitzes etc. and of those thousands in industry, in economics, in the intellectual world and in the armed forces. If all these had fulfilled their racial duty as did the British, the Poles, the Czechs, the Irish and the Jews, they could have prevented both World Wars and seen to it that ample space required for life (“Lebensraum”) would have been given to the Germans. Instead, they allow decorations to be conferred upon themselves by the English King and by Stalin because of their assistance in laying their mother-country in ruins.”
Here the good doctor is sadly confused. Most, if not all, of those family names he mentioned are German-Jewish, and it is they who are of that race who declared war on Germany in 1933, and like many more of that tribe, also financed and profited from the war.
“I have had the bitter experience that the greatest haters of the Germans are the disloyal Germans themselves as was the disloyal disciple of the Lord, Judas. Many are so intimidated through the hate-propaganda that they will attribute the very worst to their own people because of their fear of losing their bit of bread and their comfort… I side a thousand times rather with that true patriot, that great German-American, Carl Schurz, the right hand of the martyred President Lincoln when he said: “I love Germany as a child loves his mother, and I love America as a man loves his wife.” This should be the attitude of every German-American. He who does not love his mother violates the Command of God and is not worthy to be honored by his own children.”
(I would also disagree about Schurz and Linclon and the horrific war they waged against the South)
Little is known about the author. Metapedia states: “Ludwig Fritsch was a history professor in Romania before coming to the United States in 1921. Fritsch was pastor of the Honterus Lutheran Church in Youngstown, Ohio. In 1945 he resigned from the ministry and later moved to Chicago. Dr. Fritsch was married to Baroness Edith Gerlinde Brosig von Schwartzwasser.” No birth / death dates are included.
There certainly are a number of other things in his booklet which I disagree with. He was not too wise to the German-Jews and Marxists in America, judging by some of his statements. This booklet was written very soon after the war, and his understanding of Hitler and National Socialism was still impacted by war time propaganda. I hope that he may later have realized much more about the war time lies, and that he owed Hitler, a Christian, an apology.
Regardless of some his shortcomings or blind spots, however, I found this a fascinating read and do applaud the man’s honesty, courage and integrity. He was a scholar and keen observer of the U.S. media and politics, as well as a devout Christian. He was morally outraged regarding what was being done to the Germans by the American government and the Allies. He spoke the truth as best he knew it, and was not just “going along to get along” in the allegedly “land of the free and home of the brave”. He was also a proud Ethnic German!
