Absolute Must Viewing: Little Heard Version of WW2-The German Side of the Causes of the War

Most have heard: "There are two sides to every story and then there is the truth."

Also, most have heard, "History is written by the Victors."

Most have not heard the German side of the causes of World War 2.

In the US, as in essentially all countries and in all times, the citizens are presented w/ one version of critical events; the version that the people that control the State want the people to hear.

This documentary presents a version of the events leading to WW2, the causes of that war, from the German Perspective.

This version is the one that the US/western PTB did not want the citizens of those lands to hear:

Is this version the full truth? Likely not. However, the best way to determine the full truth of a matter is to allow all the interested parties to tell their story, their side.

In theory, our legal system is designed to do just that; allow all their "Day in Court". It is debatable that our current legal system reaches that standard to anything close to an acceptable degree.

What is not debatable is whether our current system(mass media, education system) of relaying critical information on critical events reaches the "Day in Court" standard. It does not by a huge margin; we are steered to a predetermined conclusion. The "Day in Court" standard is the only means by which the citizens of a supposedly free country would be properly supplied with the basic information necessary to effectively and properly reflect a correct "Will of the People" back to our Representative Government. Our Rulers will not allow that lest we reach a conclusion different from their desires.

Please watch and comment on this documentary. Thanks.

UPDATE: It is troubling/disturbing to read many comments to this post along the lines of-I don't need to watch/I already know followed by a detailed comment of what they already know/believe and a statement that the submitted documentary was not viewed or not viewed in totality.


Isn't this the mindset we are fighting? The mindset that "My worldview is written in stone-there is no information that could cause me to reassess/reconsider my worldview-SOoooo don't bother/I won't even examine any new info?!

This post is NOT HITLER GOOD!!

This post is simply a doc I came across purporting to give the German side of the WWII story as told by Germans.

It is NOTHING more, Nothing less. I have no opinion on it's value other than it is worth the time to view. Disagree-No problem but if you do disagree without viewing the doc-seems to me an expression of emotion rather than logic.

I repost the following comment from below because examining very important events like WWII is not a waste of ones time, at least in the view of the authors of the cited references:

Nope. Hitler was only a lame copycat.

Nope. Hitler was only a lame copycat.

He didn't invent anything. But he DID "succeed" in the applications, granted. Or up to a point anyway.

Ever heard of Mr. Francois-Noel Babeuf (aka Gracchus Babeuf) ?

If not, help yourself :

Or ... how the French Revolution ideals were taken out to the garbage.

Now you know why I cherish the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

Everyone has their own perspective of what happens in any event. I have been watching Oliver Stone's 'Untold History of the United States' and he definitely has his own personal perspective. It's a different narritive of history then I learned even with the same videos. It is true? I have no idea but I do enjoy watching all these other perspectives. Now to watch this video...

Okay, I watched it and found it very interesting. I always wondered why the German people went along with so much of the early years of the war. Again, the events were the same but the perspectives were different. Propaganda was very effective on all sides of these war years. Now I have more information to consider why my ancestors in Germany decided to support Hitler. My dad fought in the Pacific, but his four brothers all fought in Europe against their ancestors. I never got their stories while they were alive. The third perspective I would like to study a bit would be that from Russia. Anyone got a good book to recommend?

BTW, German innovation is back again. The Atomic Age was discovered by the Germans and the Americans exploited it after the war and actually took the wrong path with it. At the dawn of the atomic age, uranium and thorium were equally important as the element of choice in researching nuclear energy. Either one could have powered the world’s reactors. But it was uranium that won out, and thorium, which is far cleaner, safer, and more abundant than uranium, was relegated to the dustbin of science. With it went the possibility of creating a low risk nuclear energy source to power our planet. What might have happened had our scientists, our government, and the nuclear power industry invested the resources to develop this little known yet abundant element? Would we face a global energy crisis and the prospect of catastrophic climate change today? Why are countries around the world, including rising economic superpowers India and China, rushing to develop electricity from thorium while the United States, which studied thorium reactors extensively in the 1960s, plays catch-up?

Look at Russia for the answers


If you want to avoid the noise of debates like this, partly caused to divert attention away from something else, look at Russia during WWII.

They did everything Hitler did, had the same plans, ethnic cleansing of whole populations, and kept the concentration camps they captured from Hitler going. Russia was also responsible for inflating the figures of the concentration camps in their captured territories, because it benefited them to do so - it provided a justification for seizing eastern europe.

History is written by the victors. And one of those victors happened to be Russia.

In fact, they gained the most from the war. We even had a general assassinated over it.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

Benjamin Freedman's speech Audio

I started reading and then started looking to see if there was an audio and found this site.

Benjamin Freedman's speech

Benjamin Freedman's speech was very enlightening. Thanks for the link.


I'm in Germany and the video is blocked here... Any idea why?
WE can't have the truth getting out can we?

When Fascism goes to sleep, it checks under the bed for Ron Paul!

It's an interesting video

While shedding some blame the narrator however white washes Hitler's role. I think it's a dub of a German documentary, could be that.

It could also be that the you tube user unfortunately seems to have fascistic and far right leanings as well anti-semetic... Such things are not protected as free speech there.

I know many people here...

And they know more about it than the average American...

When Fascism goes to sleep, it checks under the bed for Ron Paul!

Sorry that came out wrong

since its a dub of a German documentary could have been taken off on copy right grounds.

I'm not for a second trying to say a Germans dub would want to white wash the past, they seem determined to learn from the mistakes of past generations rather.

The people yes...

The govt, no.

When Fascism goes to sleep, it checks under the bed for Ron Paul!

The old Rothbardian Anti-Jew / Sons of the South ploy, eh?

Well played.

IF (big if), IF *Hitler ONLY conquered Poland and France (left everyone else alone), they would have STILL gotten their lilly-white butts kicked (for that alone).

The military campaign is NOT why NO ONE wants to hear the German-version (rationalization) -- It's the death-murder / experimental-torture on Christians and Jews without RATIONAL warrant.

No amount of "the Jews don't play fair" can justify what they did to Christians (let alone what they did to Jews).

Guilt by association *sheesh*

Octo, Are you directing your comment to me?

If so I have no "ploy"(at least not knowingly). I do not like any view to be suppressed. I believe all voices must be allowed in the marketplace of ideas/opinion and trust that people of goodwill applying critical thinking skills will, over time, do an excellent job of sorting the truest truth from trash.

My ONLY agenda is TRUTH and LIBERTY. If some truth slaughters some sacred cows-they were never properly sacred cows.

I find that it is a prevailing aspect of human nature to seek only information supportive of ones preferred world view and to avoid any information that may do damage to ones preferred world view.

I have always sought to find only pure truth, no matter how ugly, depressing, etc. the pure truth may be. I have no preconceived world view. My world view is shaped only by the best truth I can discern and is constantly evolving and always a work in progress.

If you take offense to this post I am sorry you are offended but your offense is misplaced and based on misunderstanding. Do I present this as the absolute truth? No I do not and stated so above. This is a version of events I have never heard/seen and offer it only as further input/commentary on a very important time in human history. If every bit of this is complete crap-no problem/no skin off my butt. I urge any and all to tear it to shreds if that is the case(with proper and complete support of course). If only one tiny scrap of this documentary is an unknown/little known truth then it serves good purpose by bringing that scrap of truth to light.

No offense my friend but I am afraid you look at the world through filters-which puts you in the company of 99.9999% of humanity.

It is sad when people do this because they risk missing some very critical truths of life.

P.S. Other than gleaning your general displeasure, I do not understand what you are trying to say specifically w/ your comment here. Please do clarify your comment. Thanks.

A free-society according to Mises is one where the consumer


The Nazi's controlled all forms of consumption and killed Germans and stole consumptive power and redistributed wealth without censor.

Trying to see the good in the growth in non-market goods/tools is pretty much the antithesis of s free-market and I'm not so sure that studying failed regimes is the path to to free-enterprise do you?

Death-murder? Experimental-torture?

Those are some emotionally loaded words that you're throwing around there. Do you have any actual sources to back up these claims that the Germans murdered, tortured and experimented on Christians, or is this some kind of new addition to the holohoax myth?

How about a book

written by a Dutch Christian who spent time in a concentration camp?

Was she lying? I think not.

The Hiding Place by Corrie ten Boom

I once worked with a man from Poland who I happened to sit next to on a plane for a business trip in 1988. He had a tatoo...crude numbers on his forearm inflicted upon him in a German concentration camp as a small child. He did not want to talk about it. Was he lying? I don't think so.

We freedom-loving Americans would be furious if we were forced to leave all of our possessions and be carted off to camps - even if it was only one family this happened to - we wouldn't stand for it. Why was it OK to do to Jews and other nationalities during WW2? I don't care if it was only one Jewish family or thousands of Jewish families. It was a horrific and horrible -evil acts committed by evil hearts.

Do unto wouldn't want that done unto you... no way.

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.

Check out Diet Eman, C. Ten Boom, Helmut Ziefle, & Anita Dittman

Books on Amazon. Eye-witness accounts from Christians who saw the Nazi regime abuse themselves and other Christians.

Christians should not be warmongers!

Ok, let's see…

Anita Dittman is a Messianic Jew, not Christian. Also not murdered, not tortured, not experimented on. Not one of the brighter holohoaxers, but then you don't need to appeal to common sense with these stories, just raw emotion. Her narrative follows the established holocaust™ story that six million died. Claims she was sent to a "concentration camp" (doesn't say which camp), located in a cow barn where she slept on straw and sang Christmas Carols (conveniently evoking images of Jesus in the manger). Claims she narrowly escaped hours from being exterminated after she was let out to get supplies for the camp. You do see the problem with this, don't you?

I couldn't find much about Helmut Ziefle, but he does not appear to have been tortured or experimented on, and is still alive. He wrote one book called "One Woman Against the Reich". I'll let the book's description speaks for itself:

"While no one suffered under Hitler more than the Jews, truly committed Christians found themselves facing two terrible alternatives: conform to or be consumed by the monstrous political ambitions and genocidal blood lust of the Third Reich."

Wow, sounds like that book isn't given to sensationalism at all. /sarcasm

As for Diet Eman and Corrie Ten Boom, they were both resistance fighters who were sent to prison for hiding Jews (who were considered political dissidents) from arrest and deportation. I couldn't find any mention of either of these women being tortured or experimented on, and they certainly weren't killed. Boom died at 91 years of age. Eman is still alive at 92.

I would also like to point out that individuals harboring jews or providing some pro-jewish service does not offer proof that the Nazis attempted to exterminate jews.

I'll answer you just once more, (not for your sake--

you don't want truth); But for the sake of others here. In Ziefle's book, he relates many things. One of which was a story of his Christian uncle being forcefully castrated without anesthesia for calling Hitler a scoundrel while at work.

Diet Eman was slowly starved (she did survive to tell) and her Christian fiance killed in a concentration camp before the war was over.

Corrie Ten Boom was starved, beaten, and had to watch her sister die of maltreatment in a "work" camp.

Most humane people would consider the above torture.

You're obviously not a life and liberty lover. Go away.

Christians should not be warmongers!

I want the truth. That's why I question everything.

"1controversialchick", you don't know me. So I'll thank you not to define what I am and tell me where to go. You are quick to imply that I am being inhumane for not accepting these stories at face value (ad hominem), but I don't know if they are true, so why should I accept them without question? How do you know these stories are true? Can you give me any proof besides "it says so in the book"?

Yes they did horrible things

But once you discover the intention of WWI and the reasons behind it you'll understand why Hitler "Started" WWII and the rest of Germany sought to exterminate the Jews. I'm not preaching we do the same the very thought of it is disgusting; I wish to ask that you look into the details surrounding WWI and WWII. As we can see from looking at these we get the picture that Hitler wanted to fight against the global bankers and their country's they occupied. He just did it in a foolish way. I invite you to actually research it and take it from Germany's perspective. A good place to start is the BERLIN BAGHDAD RAILWAY and OIL


If he was doing it to fight against the globalist bankers, why not go after the Rothschilds themselves? Why kill innocent Jews? And why kill others such as Gypsies and handicapped people?

“It is not our part to master all the tides of the world, but to do what is in us for the succour of those years wherein we are set, uprooting the evil in the fields that we know, so that those who live after may have clean earth to till." -J.R.R. Tolkien

To send a message?

Who houses the global bankers, WE DO so why not go after us; although the question arises about Germany's own globalist bankers, I wonder what happened to them. I believe Hitler went after these bastards the only way he could by doing what you listed; why else kill the ethnic groups that you believe are behind your downfalls. WWI was orchestrated by the European elite/bankers regarding the BAGHDAD RAILWAY and oil markets at the turn of the 19th century, I plead you all to look into it. Maybe I'm wrong and look like a total dick but maybe I'm right; take a look into German propaganda, watch the film DIE ROTHSCHILD, study WWI you might get a different look. I also believe the whole Arayn super race Hitler wanted was maybe why he extended his groups to gypsies and handi-caps ect. Hitler was indeed a mad man and hes legacy is dark but you must look at all issues from both sides; I can't seriously believe one man inspired a country to conquer Europe and the world on the bases of race and superiority. Certain players and key elements have been proven to be behind many wars so why not the biggest one of them all.

My opinion of WWII is Hitler had the right Idea BUT!

I believe when Hitler came into power he could still remember the work and lies behind world war one. I did a big research paper on world war one as well as posting it up on here the dailypaul. I discussed how WWI was probably not the result of the assassination of Austria/Hungary Archduke Franz Ferdinand. In my research paper we go over topics that are not common knowledge when learning WWI; I cover the importance of the Berlin Baghdad Railway and oil. Yes when you look at the economic and industrial events pre-WWI, you get a feeling that WWI was over something much more than entangling alliances and the Assassination of Franz Ferdinand. I believe WWI was orchestrated by the English hierarchy as well as their friends the Rothschild and their associates; the war was fought mainly because of the BERLIN BAGHDAD RAILWAY. Germany at the time had no oil producing colonies unlike France, England and Russia; the only way to get it was to trade with the dutch or build a railway to their friends in the Ottoman Empire. The railway allowed Germany to acquire oil from the Ottoman Empire for their newly achieved industrial strength; in the years before WWI Germany surpassed England in steel and Iron production. With their new found industrial strength and the invention of combustion engines; all they needed was large amounts of oil and they would be the next European SuperPower. The other main reason behind the railway was the strategic military advantage it would allow over the English and their north African, Mesopotamia and Saudi-Arabian colonies which were England's backbone for their oil production. Because of this Germany and the Ottomon Empire could use the railway for pinpoint attacks in that region; hell the first British battle regimate deployed was deplyoed to BARASA present day IRAQ to defend their oil. Also the Rothschilds had the Royal Dutch Oil company and their friends the Rockefellers had Standard Oil; the whole oil market was cornered by these two groups; so when Germany thought it would get a slice of oil pie, I could only imagine how the they and the English felt. If you don't believe me Watch ROBERT NEWMANS HISTORY OF OIL, he does a funny show on the matter. I don't want to get into the war details right now I'll post up my research paper link in the end of this comment. Anyways I believe Hitler saw the people behind WWI as the English and the Jews specifically the Rothschild's; after returning Germany to its former glory around the 1930's that's when in my belief Hitler wanted to get back at them. My evidence in such a claim? Go watch the Nazi Propaganda films and you'll quickly realize not all of it is "Propaganda" watch the film DIE ROTHSCHILD, it gets a little anti-semetic but it clearly points out the whole Waterloo scandal and Nathan taking over England's finances. If Hitler would of attacked those specific Jews and not try to kill them all I believe a different picture would have been painted. I would like to hear Hitlers speeches translated to see if it contains any evidence of him knowing about the Rothschilds. Also is you look at the career of Charles August Lindbergh you can find quotes of him speaking out against the federal reserve, I only wonder why his family joined Hitler or helped him (I don't know if he did or not) they fought against the same evil. So to wrap my controversial comment up; I believe Hitler was in a sense doing the right thing until he sought to conquer Europe along with Killing all those innocent people.

As promised my WWI Research Paper, Enjoy

Jefferson's picture


was a strong proponent of non-interventionalism and was even part of the "America First" party which dissolved quickly after the attack on Pearl Harbor.
My basic understanding is that America was largely "isolationist" after WWI and didn't want anything to do with war until the convenient attack on PH.
I was watching the (revisionist) "History Channel" the other day, and they were talking about how FDR was making deals with Churchill to not only supply him with ships but with use of our factories in trade for British technological secrets like the magnetron and rough plans for the A-bomb.
Thanks for the different perspective. I will check it out when I have more time. The discrepancies are astounding between what we were taught in "school" and what actually happened.

Thank you

For Posting. Will view and get back.

That's just what the liberty movement needs... A youtube video on the Daily Paul's front page justifying Hitler's horrific acts. Are you fucking kidding me? What's next? A video about how great slavery was? Hitler was so awful that he makes Abe Lincoln look tolerable. Oh, that Stalin... He wasn't so bad. Give me a break. You're doing us all a disservice. Of course American foreign policy is bad. But don't be stupid.
