Dedicated to Those Who Opposed the War Against Germany
Everyone hated Hitler and opposed him. Everyone thought the war was absolutely necessary to “stop that evil tyrant”! Everyone knows he was a “war monger” and that he wanted to “rule the world”, right? Wrong! There were many respected voices around the world, but especially in England and The USA who opposed the war. Were they just stupid “Peaceniks”, “Liberals”, “Appeasers”, “Commies”, or “Closet Nazis”?? Nope!
This page is very lengthy and contains many historical quotes from notable politicians, diplomats, nobles, respected authors and journalists, as well as, from Hitler and Churchill themselves. I hope that people will read and give consideration to all of these in order to better understand the true history and context of that “Great War”, which we are always reminded of and admonished to learn from, so that we do not repeat the mistakes of the past.
HITLER PROCLAIMED FROM THE START IN 1933:
“As regards its foreign policy the National Government considers its highest mission to be the securing of the right to live and the restoration of freedom to our nation. Its determination to bring to an end the chaotic state of affairs in Germany will assist in restoring to the community of nations a State of equal value and, above all, a State which must have equal rights. It is impressed with the importance of its duty to use this nation of equal rights as an instrument for the securing and maintenance of that peace which the world requires today more than ever before. May the good will of all others assist in the fulfillment of this our earnest wish for the welfare of Europe and of the whole world.” ~ Adolf Hitler, democratically elected and duly appointed Chancellor of Germany, first Speech to the Reichstag, February 1st, 1933
TO THE EDITOR OF THE TIMES
“The undersigned who believe that real friendship and co-operation between Great Britain and Germany are essential to the establishment of enduring peace not only in Western Europe but throughout the world, strongly deprecate the attempt which is being made to sabotage an Anglo-German rapprochement by distorting the facts of the Czecho-Slovak settlement.
We believe that the Munich Agreement was nothing more than the rectification of one of the most flagrant injustices of the Peace Treaty. It took nothing from Czecho-Slovakia to which that country could rightly lay claim, and gave nothing to Germany which could have been rightfully withheld. We see in the policy so courageously pursued by the Prime Minister (Neville Chamberlain) the end of a long period of lost opportunities and the promise of a new era to which the tragic years that have gone since the War will seem like a bad dream.”

BACKGROUND TO THE MUNICH AGREEMENT
The dismemberment of Germany following the Great War meant that the Sudetenland (Bohemia and Moravia), part of Germany for 700 years and with a population of over 3 million Germans, being moved – against their wishes – out of their homeland to become part of a newly-created country, populated mainly by Czechs and Slovaks, which was to be called Czecho-Slovakia.
The Sudeten Germans suffered greatly under Czech rule. On March, 4th, 1919, public meetings calling for self determination were brutally broken up and 52 German civilians were murdered. Lord Rothermere described Czechoslovakia as a ‘swindle’
Conditions imposed upon the Sudeten-Germans were so harsh that during 1919, 600,000 were forced to leave their settlements of centuries. Throughout the ensuing years, the Czech President, M. Benes, saw to it that conditions became so intolerable that even England and France felt it necessary to concede this injustice of Versailles and agreed to its return to Germany.
“The worst offence was the subjection of over three million Germans to Czech rule.” – H.N Brailsford, Leading left wing commentator
The Czech administration which wanted the German territory but not its population, agreed, but refused to do so and instead began a reign of terror aimed at driving the German population over the borders into Hitler’s Germany in a program that has since been termed ethnic cleansing.
THE GRUESOME RESULTS
“Let us examine the gruesome tale of figures. On one single day 10,000 refugees, the next day 20,000, then 37,000. Two days later 41,000, then 62,000 and 78,000. Soon it was 90,000, 107,000, 137,000 and today the figure is 214,000. Whole districts are being depopulated. Villages are being burnt down and shrapnel and gas used to exterminate the German population.” – Adolf Hitler, September 26th 1938
Similarly, when under the terms of the Versailles Treaty, a large part of Germany and its German population was awarded to Poland, so began an anti-German racist pogrom resulting in widespread murder and mayhem resulting in over a million Germans being ‘ethnically cleansed’ from their homelands of centuries.
“Let there be no mistake; the 30th January was not the beginning of the agitation against Germany; in 1923 over half a million Germans had to leave their historical homelands, Posnia-West Prussia, and this number increased – according to Polish statements – to a million by 1931.” – Heinz Roth, publisher
Hitler’s Germany could no longer act as bystanders to the grim unfolding tragedy. When German troops re-entered their former territory, the Sudetenland, there was rejoicing in the streets.
THE TIMES RECOGNIZED REAL POLITIK
“It was one of the mistakes of the Peace Treaty that though the principle of self-determination was much in evidence in Paris, the wishes of the Germans in Bohemia as of their fellows in Austria were never consulted; or, insofar as by their self-organized efforts those wishes found some expression, they were harshly brushed aside. What remains to be done is rectify the error of 1919.” – The Times, June, 14th, 1938
THE MUNICH PACT
The Munich Pact is the name given to the agreement which recognized the injustice of that section of the Versailles Treaty, which had delivered over 3 million Germans and their homelands to a newly formed state, and subjected them to the antagonisms of a hostile government.
The Munich Pact “… was a triumph for all that was best and most enlightened in British life.” – Prof. A.J.P. Taylor, Historian
NOTE: Neville Chamberlain on his return from Munich was denounced for having negotiated a peaceful settlement and his effigy was burnt – in Moscow. On the strength of a report, later found to be false, Mr. Chamberlain guaranteed Poland’s borders. The irony was that Hitler himself was prepared to guarantee those very same borders but had his proposals rejected.
“If the principle of self-determination had been applied in Germany’s favor, as it was applied against her, it would have meant the return of the Sudetenland, Czechoslovakia, parts of Poland, the Polish Corridor and Danzig to the Reich.” Lord Lothian, in his last speech to Chatham House
“Personally I am sorry to say I am convinced that we cannot permanently prevent these Sudeten Germans from coming into the Reich if they wish it and undoubtedly, the majority today do so.” – Neville Henderson to Lord Halifax
“I cannot see what else Europe could expect. No mobilization except commonsense. We should take Hitler at his word.” – George Lounsbury, Ex-Chairman of the Labour Party
“The Locarno Pact is dead. It goes unhonoured and unsung into the tomb of political errors.” – Lord Rothermere‘s newspapers
“Hitler has given new hope to humanity. His points are inspired by a most generous spirit which, if accepted, will surely blow away the dark fears.” – Sir. Philip Gibbs
“As one of Hitler’s greatest friends put it to me recently; ‘You can start a preventive war; you can bomb our cities and occupy our territory. But this time you will not break our spirit. There will be no November, 1918 in the next war.” – H. Powys Greenwood. Hitler’s First Year
“I am gratified beyond measure to observe that since the 7th March there has come in foreign countries a growing realization that Germany – speaking through the mouthpiece of her Leader – has a sincere pragmatic desire for peace for the worried, suspicious European countries.” – Douglas Chandler, American journalist
NATIONAL SOCIALIST PHILOSOPHY CONTRARY TO WAR AND CONQUEST
“The repeated declaration, for example, that it is against Nazi convictions to want to turn Poles, Frenchmen or Czechs into Germans is based on the idea that the process must lead ‘to the destruction of the German elements, and that the ‘victors would thus in reality become the vanquished’. When Nazis assure me that they regard the conquest of non-German elements as likely to weaken them, I am inclined to believe it, as racial purity is a fundamental article of their faith. It is this faith itself which is leading them to adopt a more conciliatory attitude towards the adjoining races.” – H. Powys-Greenwood, Hitler’s First Year
“However, she does not want to fight at all if it can be helped; and the racial idea itself leads her to be thoroughly alive to the terrible threat of modern warfare to women and children, the bearers of the race, and to the dangers that would threaten the white races in the event of another internecine struggle.” – H.Powys-Greenwood, Hitler’s First Year
“If their legitimate aspirations are thwarted and their tentative moves towards reconciliation with former enemies rejected; if their attempts to get in touch with other people – the British people above all – and evoke sympathetic understanding at least of some of their aims, are met by a persistent barrage of uncomprehending criticism; the chance of influencing the still young plant of National Socialism will be thrown away and the New Germany, leaders and led alike, may in despair turn to the blatant gospel of force. A preventive war, which always seems to me to be the acme of defeatism, the action of men or nations who have no confidence in their future, would at any rate be more logical.” – H. Powys-Greeenwood, Hitler’s First Year
“One young S.S Man from the Rhineland, who had been telling me harrowing tales of the Negro occupation, added that as a German nationalist nothing would please him better than a war of revenge against France, but as a National Socialist, with the good of the people at heart, he earnestly wished to end a thousand years of futile conflict with the hereditary enemy.” – H. Powys-Greenwood, Hitler’s First Year
PRIME MINISTER CHAMBERLAIN
“In three days last week I had 2,450 letters, and 1,860 (76%) of these were ‘stop the war’, in one form or another.” – Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, October 1939
LEAGUE OF NATIONS
“He (Hitler) is totally convinced that England wants to strike Germany down again, and that everything which he himself undertakes, therefore, has a defensive character. Nevertheless, not very long ago, in an intimate circle on the Ober-Salzburg, Hitler expressed this opinion: ‘A European war could be the end of all our efforts even if we should win, because the disappearance of the British Empire would be a misfortune which could not be made up again. If they, the British Government, force me into belligerency however, then I will seize the initiative and will use every means at my disposal.” – Carl. J. Burckhardt, High Commission of the League of Nations, 1938
WHEN WAR WAS DECLARED (GERMANY)
When Britain declared war on Germany, (3rd, September, 1939) and the contents of the British Declaration of War were read out to Hitler, it was, ‘as if he had been turned to stone. For a while dead silence prevailed in the room. Finally, Hitler turned to Ribbentrop, his Foreign Minister, and said; ‘What now?”
WHEN WAR WAS DECLARED (BRITAIN)
“In Britain, Lord Halifax was reported as being ‘redeemed’. “He ordered beer. We laughed and joked.” – H. Roth, Why Are We Being Lied To?
AND AFTERWARDS: “I considered the Nuremberg Trials unjust for condemning the conquered Admirals as war criminals when, in reality, they did nothing other than defend their country with acknowledged patriotism.” – Vice Admiral Carlos Torres Hevia, Republic of Chile
BRITONS WHO OPPOSED WAR WITH GERMANY
During the war, thousands of British people were gaoled under a hastily contrived piece of legislation entitled ‘Regulation 18B’, as being potentially sympathetic towards National Socialism or, simply but actively being opposed to war with Germany. They were rounded up and without trial imprisoned. It was said ‘that every decoration from the Victoria Cross downwards, could be seen on the prison yard at Brixton’. – For Those Who Cannot Speak, Michael McLaughlin.
“Let us be fair to these people who were imprisoned under 18B, and let us remember that they have never been accused of any crime; not only have they not been convicted of any crime, but they have never been accused of any crime. This should be remembered in all fairness to them.” – Lord Jowett, The Lord Chancellor to the House of Lords, December 11th 1946
BRITISH PEOPLE FOR PEACE
“The largest indoor meeting ever held in Britain occurred when over 20,000 people packed Earls Court in London, to support a peace meeting organized by the British Union.” – Michael McLaughlin, For Those Who Cannot Speak
“A VISION WHICH EXCEEDED CHURCHILL’S”
“I had the privilege of enjoying the close friendship of Mr. Lloyd George for nearly twenty years, and it is clear from Lord Gladwyn’s letter (July, 28th) that he never knew him. He had all the courage of Churchill and even greater vision. Churchill once described him to me as ‘our most illustrious citizen, who was always in the next field but one,’ and Lord Birkenhead, when Lord Chancellor; ‘I have not yet discerned his equal, and doubt if I ever shall.’
Contrary to what Lord Gladwyn says, in the words of Harold Nicolson (who was there); ‘He fought like a tiger’ in Paris for a better peace treaty at Versailles. He failed, not because of Clemenceau – a ‘rude but reasonable man’ – but because of the obstinacy of President Woodrow Wilson. Afterwards he said to me: ‘The world is too torn and miserable and hurt just now for a just and lasting peace. But this is not the end, it is the beginning.’
I asked him what he planned to do, and he said; ‘Revise the Polish frontier in Silesia; abolish the Polish Corridor between East and West Germany, which is a running sore; abolish reparations, and with them all inter-allied debts; and get a good international monetary system. After that, we shall get, I hope, steady and agreed disarmament and closer European co-operation.’
He started well at the Genoa Conference of 1922, which he dominated. Then everything crashed. Rathenau was assassinated. He himself fell from power, Stresemann died, Briand was consigned to the political wilderness. The era of the political pygmies had arrived.
Lord Gladwyn goes on to say that he was an appeaser of the Nazis before the 1939 – 1945 war, ‘when the Foreign Office was increasingly firm and resolute’. This is flatly untrue. Lloyd George was never at any time an appeaser, nor did he ever advocate unilateral disarmament. On the contrary, he frequently condemned Neville Chamberlain’s disarmament, ‘which I never would have allowed’, and even Franklin Roosevelt’s hinting at the possibility of Pearl Harbour. Tom Jones, his Welsh Secretary persuaded him, and later Baldwin’s, because Jones, who accompanied him, thought he was the only man alive who could now prevent a Second World War.
But George gave nothing away, and afterwards Hitler said, ‘what a pity for them that they have no one else like that now.’ He reckoned without one.
At the Foreign Office, Sir. Horace Wilson replaced Lord Vansittart. If this is Lord Gladwyn’s idea of ‘increased firmness and resolution’ it isn’t mine. I went to lunch later with Lloyd George and Vansittart in the South of France. On the way back Vansittart remarked grimly: ‘We have no one of that caliber now’.
I find myself in agreement with Lord Gladwyn on only one point. While the treasure has been almost consistently wrong over the past 50 years, the Foreign Office has had occasional flashes of sanity, especially under Bevin, Home and Carrington. But the real miracle is that the British people have been great enough to survive them both for so long.” – Boothby, House of Lords, Daily Telegraph
“Indeed he went even further (Con O’Neill ‘brilliant Whitehall mandarin’). He told his boss, the then Foreign Secretary, Rab Butler, that Britain had always gone to war against cross-border organizations like the Community. Our traditional foreign policy, after all, had been to keep the continental powers divided.” – Daily Mail editorial. 2nd January 1995
AMERICANS AGAINST THE WAR
Seldom in American history were the American people as united in their views as they were in 1939 about staying out of the war in Europe. “When hostilities began in September, 1939, the Gallup Poll showed 94% of the American people against involvement in war. The figure rose to 96.5% in December 1939. On June, 3rd, 1941, 83% of the American population was against entering the war.” – Gallup Poll
“The entry of America into the war would lead to chaos lasting several generations.” – Charles Lindburgh
“All that is best in France is against war, almost at any price.” – Eric Phipps, Britain’s Ambassador to France
HITLER ON GERMAN-BRITISH RELATIONS
“I feel it to be a great misfortune that on August, 4, 1914, these two great Germanic nations (Germany and Britain) which, through all the fluctuations of German history, have lived in peace for hundreds of years, were plunged into war. I would be very happy if this unnatural state of things came to an abrupt end and our two kindred peoples found their way back to the old relations of friendship.” – Adolf Hitler speaking to a British journalist, October 18 1933
THE BRITISH LEGION
“The English have fought against the Germans only once. We, the representatives of the British Legion, are of the opinion that it was a mistake. This mistake must never occur again. I can well speak in the name of the soldiers of the British Empire when I say that during the war we had an extraordinary high esteem for the German soldiers. For me this esteem was confirmed when I came with the army of occupation in Cologne and saw how the Germans know how to bear great misfortune and hard times,” – Major F.W.C Featherstone-Godley, British Legion
“He (Hitler) disclosed on 20th, January, 1943, that the Germans in 1940 offered to retire Hitler if by doing so they could make peace with Britain.” – Joseph E. Davis, U.S. Ambassador to the Soviet Union, 1936/38
“Most Germans think the war is stupidly unnecessary and that the British were sticking their noses into what is none of their business. ‘Just think of it!’ they exclaim. Here we are so busy making over our country, and now we have to lay aside our fine construction plans to go and fight it out with those damned Englishmen.’” – Lothrop Stoddard, American philosopher, Daily Mail, January 1st 1940
“On the contrary, he (Hitler) wanted to remove Danzig as an obstacle, so that he could strengthen their friendship (between Germany and Poland).” – Lipski, Polish Ambassador to Berlin
“We have no doubt about your bravery or devotion to your fatherland, nor do we believe that you are the monster described by your opponents.” ~ Gandhi in a letter to Adolf Hitler
Reflecting back on World War I (1914-1918), he wrote a book in 1932. The title of the book was ‘Thoughts and Adventures’ and he stated: “Everything that happened in the four years of World War I was only a prelude to what the fifth year would have brought. The war of 1919 we never fought, but the ideas live on. Death stands at the ready, it only waits the word. Next time perhaps, it may be a matter of killing women and children, or the entire population.” ~ Winston Spencer Churchill
For Churchill, it appears, this new world war was just a continuation of the first, and he could not wait for it to begin, and was determined to not let it slip away, and to inflict as much damage upon the German people, regardless of her leadership. He, and his political masters had no desire for peace at all. Did his actions not also prove this?
In a speech to the German people and in leaflets air-dropped over the UK, Adolf Hitler criticised Winston Churchill and then French Prime Minister Paul Reynaud, for the “suffering they have caused by their counsels and decrees to millions of people”.
“It never has been my intention to wage wars, but rather to build up a state with a new social order and the finest possible standard of culture and every year that this war drags on is keeping me away from this work!
Mr Churchill ought perhaps for once to believe me, when I prophesy that a great empire will be destroyed – an empire which it was never my intention to destroy or even to harm.
I can see no reason why this war must go on!”
THE PRIVATE AND POLITICAL TESTAMENTS OF HITLER, APRIL 29, 1945 (excerpt)
“It is untrue that I or anyone else in Germany wanted the war in 1939. It was desired and instigated exclusively by those international statesmen who were either of Jewish descent or worked for Jewish interests. I have made too many offers for the control and limitation of armaments, which posterity will not for all time be able to disregard for the responsibility for the outbreak of this war to be laid on me. I have further never wished that after the first fatal world war a second against England, or even against America, should break out. Centuries will pass away, but out of the ruins of our towns and monuments the hatred against those finally responsible whom we have to thank for everything, international Jewry and its helpers, will grow.
Three days before the outbreak of the German-Polish war I again proposed to the British ambassador in Berlin a solution to the German-Polish problem—similar to that in the case of the Saar district, under international control. This offer also cannot be denied. It was only rejected because the leading circles in English politics wanted the war, partly on account of the business hoped for and partly under influence of propaganda organized by international Jewry.
I have also made it quite plain that, if the nations of Europe are again to be regarded as mere shares to be bought and sold by these international conspirators in money and finance, then that race, Jewry, which is the real criminal of this murderous struggle, will be saddled with the responsibility. I further left no one in doubt that this time not only would millions of children of Europe’s Aryan peoples die of hunger, not only would millions of grown men suffer death, and not only hundreds of thousands of women and children be burnt and bombed to death in the towns, without the real criminal having to atone for this guilt, even if by more humane means.” ~ Adolf Hitler

WATCH: Hitler’s War – What the Historians Neglect to Mention
There are always two sides to every story, and now the Germans are finally telling theirs. This film is a “must see” for anyone with a sense of justice, honour, fairness and dignity, who have respect for ALL of the victims of World War II (not merely the “politically correct” ones) and who are interested in an accurate account of history. Indeed, if we are to learn from history, and not be doomed to repeat it, then we must also have a fair and accurate account from which to draw our conclusions and upon which to make decisions in the present, and for our future.
Why don’t you know this history? Who doesn’t want you to know it? Who has benefited from your ignorance? And who is still benefiting from it, and at who’s expense? Why, the German’s expense, of course. but also at the expense of all those who fought against Germany, who falsely believed they were the good guys, the “liberators” doing the right thing. They were mere pawns in the game.
Bear all of this information in mind when in each November you are again asked to wear a poppy and “honour the fallen” with your SILENCE … as well as each June on during the D-Day ceremonies.
I for one shall not be SILENT. My people, the Germans, have wrongly suffered and have borne alone the burden of undeserved guilt and shame, for two world wars, for far too long, when even one day of this rubbish was too much, considering how Germany was already destroyed with millions killed.
Enough of this false history, propaganda, outright lies and deceit! Enough of the demonization and false war guilt from the allied kangaroo court known as the Nuremberg War Crimes Tribunal, with tortured confessions, fabrications and forged documents!! Enough of the Jewish propaganda masquerading as “history” being sold to the dumbed down sheeple, for the benefit of the International Bankster Gangster Elite and their New World Order agenda, which Hitler himself warned of and opposed. This is why he declared war against Freemasonry, banned them, and other secret societies.
Hitler was a threat to them, their global domination and banking system; not to the people of world. His crime was freeing his people from their financial enslavement and eternal debt servitude, to unite his people, to put them back to work, give them their pride, honour and prosperity back, and stopping the rapid destruction of the German culture that began after World War I in the Weimar Republic. More importantly, however, showing the world that one did not need these “Money Masters” or shall I say, “Money Changers”. Are we getting it yet?
How many outright, outrageous lies and distortions of fact would Hitler’s real enemies tell, to this day, and to what lengths would they not go, to smear him and smear Germany’s image, in order to con the masses into war, to protect their global empire? They are the inventors, masters and propagators of the BIG LIE technique. Hitler, however, spoke the truth and warned of their “Big Lie” technique in Mein Kampf. He knew of their evil cunning and had witnessed its effects in World War I.
Hitler was not one of the “elites: like Churchill and Roosevelt. He was a common man who fought bravely in the trenches in first war, was wounded and decorated several times. He knew the horrors of war and the stench of death personally, and he tried with all of his will, talents, intelligence and strength, and with all the means at his disposal to avoid another world war, for their New World Order agenda.
It is time for the real story to be told in its entirety, for the real High Perps to be named and shown for who and what they are. It is time for justice for the German people, both living and dead, at home and abroad, and indeed, for all those soldiers and civilians who died needlessly in two bloody World Wars.
