SS Culture – Volume Five: Germanic First Millennium
Translated from original SS publications. Starts at the time of the late Roman Empire and ends with the early First German Empire.
We must free ourselves from many passed own views and perceptions. Even if they are still often in print in textbooks of the old period, they have not thereby become more correct. They have, on the other hand, caused a lot of ill and put weapons in the hand of our world-view opponents, which they still use against us today. We can beat them, if we have the necessary knowledge. It is not about individual, historical dates, rather the view of the great connections.
We must especially refute two false perceptions: first, that Germanic-German history only started when Germanic man came into contact with the mediterranean culture of the Romans. Second, that most of the Germanic tribes voluntarily converted to Christianity, and that this faith was quite suited to their nature!
Regarding the first, earlier educational material has taught us that there was Germanic history long before they had contact with the Romans and later with Christianity. We can trace back the cultural history of our ancestors more than four thousand years before Christ, hence more than six thousand years before our own time. That we know less about the actual history, is only because we lack the earlier, written accounts, and we are hence solely dependent on finds and excavations and what other folks report about Germanic man. But that alone suffices for the proof, that they were, for example, at least equal to the Romans in terms of real culture, but were superior to them especially in terms of concepts of honor and morals. We truly do not have to be ashamed of our ancestors – they were not “wild men”! They also did not adopt Christianity for the sake of allegedly higher “moral values”.
We thus come to the second point. Many Germanic tribes did indeed voluntarily convert to Christianity. But why did they adopt the new teachings, if they did not completely correspond to their views? The correct answer was in the past prudently not given.
More or less always, the leaders and high ranking were the first to convert! For them there were many reasons, which had little to do with the faith. Only so did they, alone or with their followers, enter the Roman Reich and its service. It was simply a step of political cleverness to then adopt the state religion, especially since it was presented to Germanic man in a significantly modified form, adapted to their nature. These reasons became more important when Germanic man no longer entered Roman service individually or in small groups, rather formed his own states on the basis of Roman law and hence come into close contact with the Christian-Roman populace. The followers, however, were obligated to the leaders by unconditional loyalty – for them it was self-evidence, to accept baptism at the same time as the leader. The rest of the people then followed them; the church then had the opportunity to step-to-step take back the concessions to German folk-feeling and to take up the struggle against the remnants of “pagan superstition”.
In the previous issue, we learned of the Germanic treks and their first collisions with the mighty, organized state of the Roman world empire. In order to survive against this power, they had to give themselves a firm, state organization. However, alien institutions and views were thereby brought into the Germanic tribes, which indeed enabled them to create states too, but at the cost of the folk substance. That meant that the folk that had to bear the state was weakened and soon the state, too, collapsed as a consequence. We already learn this from the example of the Roman world empire, which was composed of a mixture of folks, infiltrated by Germanic man, and soon had to capitulate as a state. We then learn it as well from the example of the Germanic states of the so-called folk-wandering period, which collapsed from the same causes. We see it especially in the Frankish state, which could nonetheless, before its fall, perform educational work on the Germanic tribes of today’s Germany, that later enabled the formation of a German state. The struggle for the preservation of a healthy folk and at the same time a strong state, which can secure the life foundations of the folk, is something we will be able to follow through the whole subsequent course of German history.
Here we will see how the Germanic states, and especially the Frankish state, used foreign, Roman-Christian concepts in order to above all strengthen their own power, but later fell victim to precisely these forces. More than from the successes, we learn from the mistakes of the past!
SS Culture – Volume Seven: Christianity
Translated from original SS publications. The articles are about the impact of the Christian church on Germanic man.
The priest portrayed the blessedness of the baptised and painted the hell torments of the damned who did not want to listen to the word of the high priest in Rome. Now Wulfram of Sens turned to Ratbod himself:
“So take then, king, the water of baptism, so that you, freed from all sin, one day enter heaven with the flocks of the faithful, to sit at the right of all-knowing God from eternity to eternity, while all those go to hell who died without baptism!”
Ratbod’s voice interrupted the talking bishop.
He asked in the language of his ancestors: “You have said, priest, I shall come into heaven, if I have myself baptised? Now tell me, priest, where are my parents, who are all dead and were not baptised?”
Horror swept through the ranks of the band of priests, because the sacred act had unexpectedly been interrupted. The bishop, completely in the fervor of the conversion, uttered the words:
“All of them are with the devil in hell, because they died as heathens!”
Then Radbod smashed the earthen pan basin with the sacred water, so that the pieces fell to the ground crashing. And he hurled his free word into the cleric’s face:
“Then I wish to tell you, priest, I go rather to my parents to the devil in hell than with you priests to heaven!”
Volume One: Germanic Crusade in the East
Translated from the very first issue of the SS magazine “Germanische Leithefte” published in 1941 for the non-German Waffen-SS volunteers. Emphasis on Germanic kinship and the war against Russia. Reveals the heart and soul of the Third Reich’s fighting elite. (Note: This is the one and only volume of this set that was actually published a few years ago, although with a different cover, as item #547-A.)
“Just as the discovery of the earth’s revolution around the sun led to a revolutionary change of the general view of the world, so will the blood and race teachings of the National Socialist movement produce a transformation of the knowledge and hence of the view of the history of the human past and its future.”
– Adolf Hitler
This realization of the fateful significance of the laws of nature of blood and race form the basic idea of the SS. It is an order of Nordic-determined men and their clans.
Helped by the laws it chooses itself, the SS wishes to make a living contribution to the victory of the blood idea in Europe. It wishes to preserve and practice the highest virtues such as loyalty, bravery, comradeship and noble attitude. It is a team in which the following’s Germanic loyalty is unconditionally given to the Führer.
The SS is the protector of the inner security of the Reich and the toughest battle troop against the external enemy. The present struggle is against the anti-life forces of international Jewry, against the world bolshevism allied with him and with the Jew-dependent, greedy, English money rule and freemasonry.
The goal of the present, turbulent conflict is the formation of a natural and hence enduring New Order of Europe. This task of new ordering has been assumed by the Reich founded on the Greater Germanic development in close cooperation with brave allies.
Europe should find the lasting foundation for a splendid future, however, in the active community of fate of the Germanic folks. The SS fights for this noble goal. And so in the Führer’s SS – next to the Reich Germans – ethnic Germans from all parts of the world, especially from Romania and the rest of southeast Europe, are also assembled for battle.
Furthermore, for the first time volunteers from Flanders, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Sweden also find alongside the Reich German SS-men.
SS Creed – Volume Three: Blood
Translated from original SS publications.
Specially, these articles come from the January and March 1939 issues of the SS Leitheft. They deal with the significance of blood and even blood type, selection and reverse selection, the causes for the death of a folk, perpetuation of the clan and the duty of German youth to ensure the survival of their folk. The original illustrations are also included.
A decade ago people of our folk as well still even believed in a necessary decline. Oswald Spengler’s prophecy that the occident had to decline due to fate, was held to be true by the weaklings and cowards, who no longer possessed any faith in life. They did not see the mistake and the errors in Spengler’s line of thought, which spoke loudly and urgently of the fateful decline of all Europe’s folks. Spengler claimed: According to an inner law every folk and its culture must one day die, after it has lived through its youth and its peak time. Like a tree or a person ages in order to then necessarily perish, so must a folk also age and finally die.
The comparison of a folk with the coming and passing of an individual tree or an individual person, however, is false. For each organism receives with birth new, young life and fresh life energy. This is, after all, the miracle of life, the sacred secret in procreation and birth, that through the continued procreation eternal youth and the renewal of life is possible. The life of the individual is limited, the individual ages and must die. The individual tree comes and passes away, but the forests are eternal. The individual person as well comes and must pass away, but the folks live eternally!
Folks need not die like the individual person or the tree, but folks can die.
There are three natural causes for the death of a folk. History teaches that as well as the present. The culture folks of antiquity did not die in accordance with a fate which cannot be proven, rather because they violated the divine laws of life.
The Führer once said: “Man should never make the mistake of believing that he has advanced to master over nature, rather he must understand the fundamental necessity of nature’s rule and comprehend how his existence as well is subservient to these laws of eternal struggle upward. He will then feel that – in a world where planets and suns orbit, moons orbit around planets, in which strength is always master over weakness and forces it to be an obedient servant or destroys it – there can be no special laws for man. The eternal principles of this wisdom apply to him as well. He can try to grasp them, but he can never separate himself from them.”
Life wants the eternal triumph of the strong and healthy over the weak and sick. The wisdom of nature hence created three principles:
First: The living must always profusely breed new life.
Second: In the struggle of life, only the capable preserves himself. Through constant selection of the strong, the weak and inferior perishes.
Third: In all of nature the breeds remain loyal to themselves. Breed belongs to breed.
The folks who perished in history violated the wisdom and causality of nature. The natural causes of their decline and extinction are thus:
First: Violation against the duty to numerous profuse self-preservation.
Second: Violation against the law of natural selection.
Third: Violation of the demand for keeping pure of the breed, the keeping healthy of the blood.
My Part in Germany’s Fight by Dr. Joseph Goebbels. His diary from early 1932 until spring 1933 – while the Nazi party was achieving power and giving birth to Nazi Germany.
This is the personal diary of one of the most prominent figures in the stirring events that occurred in Germany from the beginning of 1932 to the middle of 1933, and resulted in Hitler’s accession to power.
The diary grips the reader owing to the fact that it enables him to follow the struggle between the Nazis and the Communists. Street fights, virulent speeches and press-campaign, daylight murders, fiercely-fought election battles, the organization against the Jews and the plan adopted by the Nazis to counter adverse propaganda in foreign countries, are some of the myriad facets of Hitlerite activity that are set before us vividly.
The story is dramatically told and cannot fail to hold the attention of every reader.
The historical revolution which, beginning on January 30th, 1933, wrought itself out thenceforth in the public life of the Reich before the eyes of the world, has a significance and bearing not immediately to be plumbed and measured. This event rightly bears the name of the German Revolution, for it has to do, indeed, with a revolution in values, with the overthrow of an entire world of thought which up to that date had been accepted as a matter of course by the German people.
The revolution was achieved with a clarity hitherto unknown, at least in political matters, in German public life. Its effects have placed the economical, cultural, and political life of the nation on an entirely new basis. Not only has the mental outlook of 1918, one quite alien to German nature, been given up, but those who had it, both individuals and parties, have had to abandon public life in favour of new men and new ideas.
The sheer speed by which the revolution was carried out, and the self-evidence with which it was accepted by the broad masses of the German people, have caused its effects to penetrate deeply into the national consciousness. No one in Germany today dreams they are irrevocable. They have come to stay.
Once more the government stands at the head of the country as the strong source of its will. Currents of fresh energy and resolution flow thence throughout the mass of the people, to the very last village and the very last man.
On account of the great rate at which the German Revolution went through, the contemporary onlooker may have lost, somewhat, clear perception as to how these historical events are brought about. What which yesterday was paradox, has become a triviality today. Things unthinkable, chimerical but a few months ago, are become today mere matters of course, about which no one makes any further ado.
The idea of this book is to offer a summary of the historical happenings in Germany during 1932 and the beginning of 1933, in the form of a diary. The author had neither the wish nor the power to write a comprehensive objective history of so significant a period for Germany. He stood back then, and still stands, in the midst of events. He was called upon to take an active part in them. It was neither his temperament nor his wish to watch their sequence from out the quiet of the professional study, or to treat them in an impersonal and neutral manner. From the very outset he actively espoused them, and furthered them with all his might and main, so that they might be brought about.
Whoever takes up this book looking for a history, in the ordinary acceptance of the word, will seek it there in vain. All inscribed in these pages was jotted down in the hurry and flurry of the day, and often by night. It bears evidence of the shocks and fierce emotions aroused by the events recorded, which carried away everyone who actively took part in them. It is strongly coloured by the passions of the moment, and deeply impressed by them.
God’s hand has been upon it all. He has visibly directed the Leader and his Movement. Only the faithless affirm that it has been luck that has favoured us. In reality, General von Moltke’s saying, “In the long run only the clever man is lucky,” applies to the Leader and his Party. That which had long been preparing, and which had grown organically, broke forth like a torrent on January 3oth, 1933, onwards, and swept over the whole country.
The German Revolution has imposed personal and material sacrifices on leaders and men, of which the public up to now has no idea. The peaceful unrolling of events often leads those who took no part in them to suppose that power fell into our laps like fruit, without us doing anything about it. This supposition is unfortunate, in that it ignores the wealth of sacrifice which the Movement, following its own compulsion, was bound to exact, and might even lead to the idea that we had not really deserved to come to power.
The express purpose of this book is to dispose of such errors once and for all. The unprejudiced reader will come to the conclusion that if anyone, we National Socialists, and none others, had a just claim to power, and that everything that took place was a natural consequence of the unalterable laws of higher historical development.
The adversaries of the National Socialist Movement never wearied, when opposed to us, of trying to drive a wedge between the Leader and his original colleagues. From their point of view this was easily to be understood. They were not so foolish as not to know that their only chance of deflecting the Movement from its objects, and of ruining it at length, lay in breaking up the community of National Socialist leadership.
It was seldom that the men round Adolf Hitler elected to fight the adversary with his own weapons. They knew only too well that they could not put a stop to the campaign of lies in the press. However deep they might have to wade in the mud themselves there was one thing so sacred nobody dared impugn it, but which they would or1ly openly profess under strong inducement, i.e. their unshakable love, fidelity, and devotion to the Leader.
They felt themselves one with the political troops entrusted to their guidance. They shared their sacrifices, and shared their blind devotion for the man to whom they had given themselves, and to whose hands they hoped to confide the German Nation.
This book is a monument to the Party in its great struggle, and to the “Sturm Abteilung” (S.A., Storm Troops). It offers more to the world than could be gathered from any erection of stone or marble.
Dr. Joseph Goebbels
Basic Ideas of National Socialist Cultural Policy
Translated from the Third Reich original Grundgedanken nationalsozialistischer Kulturpolitik by Munich university professor Wolfgang Schulz, which was published by the central publishing house of the NSDAP (Franz Eher Verlag) in 1939 after the author‘s death. The objective of this policy was a culture that remained true to folk and race and hence promoted the spiritual and biological health and integrity of both.
…The false doctrine that all human beings are the equal still haunts heads and resists the fundamental truth of the inequality of human beings according to their appearance, their genes and their accomplishments. The valuation of human beings that results from this is portrayed as arrogance of the more valuable, yes, as injustice.
One scorns our desire as racial arrogance, without noting that we do not judge the individual according to race, rather according to accomplishment. But in regard to the folk whole, we are concerned about the race, because the Nordic race alone has over the course world history passed a performance test that is so mighty that it obligates us to also employ this race for the new, even far greater accomplishments that matter now…
…Or one says: Culture must grow, one cannot manufacture it artificially. Just what previously proliferated among us were the weeds, and we want to exterminate them so that the beautiful and noble plants, which up until now often withered or even died, can better thrive.
Cultures need their care like forest, field and garden, and indeed a reasonable one that accounts for the laws of nature and increases them to greater beauty and order.
Forester, farmer and gardener must love nature, must understand it intimately, but must also know and have learned much about it so that the growth entrusted to them does to grow wild or become desolate…
…We speak of race, if a larger group of individual beings within their species agree in the special and balanced constitution of many and precisely the most important genes, and hence in the characteristics and traits in which the genes show themselves. Corresponding to the unity of body and soul, it is about the physical and psychological characterizes, and in man, whose soul produces spiritual and moral forces, also about the spiritual and moral and about the genes that determine this. Race is hence so comprehensive that may sciences are involved in researching and portraying the various sides of its essence, its physical and its psychological, spiritual, moral, its meaning in the present and its working in the past…
…The genes in which the members of a race must agree so that the race exists at all determine through the characters and accomplishments that grow from them the value of this race. These characteristics and accomplishments can hence be designated as racial properties…
…The valuable, cultural-creative characteristics of the culture-bearers are the foundation; the inherited goods, their products, build upon them. So it is justified to designate the respective supply of gene-based characteristics as racial properties of the first order and the tradition values as racial properties of higher order…
…Third, an effeminacy of cultured man through his cultural institutions, which enrich his life of feeling, broaden his knowledge, beautify his existence, but all too easily paralyze his decisiveness down to the bone.
It is as if the creations of culture had become independent, as if the culture-bearers had lost their mastery over them, even though they are still able to ever increase and perfect the accomplishment itself, and as if the cultural institutions rebelled against their creators…
…Genes are fate. Their application and development, however, elevates itself above fate and juts into the realm of freedom. The products finally, which the racial properties of the first order bring into the racial properties of the higher and highest order, make us really free, if we apply them correctly and make sure that they continue to work according to the law from which they have been breed, according to the law of the spirit of our own nationality and the culture-bearing race determining it.
For the freedom for which we strive does not consist of us renouncing our own folk’s essence, rather of fulfilling it. We want to finally be, and be allowed to become, those who we actually already always were, and we want the freedom to act accordingly.
The insights according to which the dangers of high culture are banished, and being able to move the forces that work in the wrong direction into the right one, demand that we develop a conscious cultural technology…
…The educators of the old school believed that all people are equal and education can achieve its goal with everybody. If one encounters difficulties, then one only needs to employ more and better educators and teachers.
Insight into the processes of hereditary and the fatefulness of the genes has destroyed this delusion. There are limits to rearing, even education. They can be broadened under favorable conditions and through suitable means, but not overcome. Much that the individual educator does not achieve can be performed by the educating force of a well delineated community. If the necessary traits are lacking or if they are too weak, than all effect is ultimately in vain, however.
On the other hand, if the traits are especially valuable and decisively effect in a certain direction, they triumph even if rearing and education have been lacking for long stretches. The young mind seizes at the decisive moment with natural force what is necessary for its thriving and growth and constructs for it its inner and outer life. It triumphs even against an oppressive environment or at least can do it, in the event the outer conditions are not all too unfavorable.
But this it not true for the average person; he needs rearing and education, and even the extraordinary talents are endangered without it.
The teachers of the old school believed that it depends on knowledge. Knowledge was supposed to encompass everything worth knowing. And what would not be worth knowing? So the subject matter burst the school, but one did not take that too seriously. The pupils learned for test and diploma and thereby earned their right to advancement and employment. Certainly, if he wanted to achieve more, he had to sit longer. The ability to devote oneself to a cause, even an intellectual one, was killed in favor of flat practicality considerations. Nobody portrayed the moral damage of this system of justification better than Lagarde…
…The statements by Lagarde characterized the situation already back then. The first: We cannot educate in our schools as long as the parents of the children who sit in front of us are not educated. The second: The pupil sits in school, gaze fixed on the door and not at the object of instruction. The third: One cannot educate generally, rather only for something…
Anton Holzner (the pseudonym for SS-Sturmbannführer Albert Hartl) was a former Catholic priest (!) who left the priesthood and the church and became an SS officer!
In all millennia, serious people have researched and pondered about the meaning of this life. Some found their life goal in enjoying the pleasures of this life as much as possible. They became superficial materialists. Others figured this life is only a brief, but difficult, test, a bridge to a better afterlife or eternal damnation. The most diverse religions portrayed this afterlife each according to the racial nature of its promotors and spreaders. The diverse priest castes did more or less good business with this afterlife. Each claimed sole and absolute knowledge about this afterlife. They sold – following diverse cult ceremonies – to living and dead places, advantages, honorary offices and mercy-gifts. It was the simplest and most primitive business, because no person returned from the afterlife and held the priest accountable. The witchdoctor of the Negro Bushmen ran as little risk as the oriental magician, if he sold the afterlife to the believers as a business.
In all periods there have also been people who opposed this afterlife materialism. A medieval story relates: Two monks portray the afterlife to each other again and again in their conversations. They imagine all the individual choruses and departments of angels and holy-men, the rank differences of the individual heavenly places, the otherworldly music, the heavenly hallelujah songs, God’s throne etc.. They promise each other that the one who dies first will appear to the other the first night in a dream and tell him what it looks like in the afterlife. If it is as they imagined it, he will simply say “totally”. If it is different, he will say “different”. When one of the monks died, he actually did appear to the other the first night. But he did not say “totally” or “different”, rather “totally different”.
That is the old wisdom of Nordic man: The Almighty has put in curtain in front of life after death. It is a secret to us. No person may presume to possess any privileged knowledge about life after death. And yet, our faith and our knowledge go beyond our earthly life. We know that each of us is a link in an endless chain that stretches from the oldest ancestors to the most distant descendants, that our river of blood comes from distant times and flows across our earthly life into the distant future. And this knowledge broadens our view and leads it across hundreds of thousands of years. And this knowledge gives us the strength of millennia and lets us surmise eternity. It places us into the endless cycle of creation.
We know that even the person who is the last link of his clan can secure an eternal future through his works and deeds. The unknown worker who chisels, transports, and puts together the building blocks for the great protective wall of the German folk or for the splendid buildings of the Third Reich, will live on in these works just like the great intellectual creators of these works. The soldier and the policeman who were the guarantors for the safe return of lost German territories to the Reich, and the quiet fighters for the freedom of the German folk, will live on forever in the Greater German Reich just like its great shapers.
Our reverence for the Almighty, however, is so great that we reject portraying the afterlife materialistically. We openly affirm here: About an afterlife we know nothing and will never know anything.
This affirmation leads us with doubled energy to this side, to earthly life. The creator put us in the life cycle of our folk. The meaning of our life is to fulfill the task given us in the organism of this folk.
We fulfill the meaning of our life, when we do everything possible to manifest and shape, to train and perfect the energies and abilities the Lord has given us. We are on earth so that we continue God’s work of creation in our blood and body, in our intellect and our soul.
Father of All Things
Translated from the Third Reich original Vater aller Dinge. It is exactly what the subtitle states: A book of war!
Whoever has experienced war in its reality, knows the terrors of blood and wounds, of destruction, annihilation, desperation, of deprivation, of sacrifice and renunciation.
Whoever has suffered it, unlearns praising it in the fanciful mood of a romantic.
War has in no way become more “humane” through the “progress” of a mankind pledged to unconditional civilization.
Quite the opposite, the more war was elevated from the plane of the power thought of ambitious and particularistic princes and unscrupulous power groups into the sphere of mighty and passionate struggles of ideas of whole folks and races, all the more ruthless became the clash of the troops filled with these ideas, and the more “total” became war itself.
Is war then a fate, a judgement, that folks in history hold over each other? Enthusiasts and utopians, dreamers and ideologues have tried through an allegedly “ennoblement”, which, in reality, lead to a psychological and blood, character and will weakening, to divert from the conduct of war, yes, even of warlike bearing. The bourgeois decadent pacifism of the most recent period was just as little able to fundamentally change the warrior instincts of the folks as already previously also the Christian pacifist teaching, despite the most unscrupulous application of all means of power, was not able to create a peaceful world of “little children”.
War is a reality, which can be covered over with neither slogans nor theories. Warlike bearing, the having-to-defend-oneself for reasons of self-preservation, is a security measure, dictated by instinct, of a healthy folk based on its life right and its life duty.
It is also not acceptable that war is presented as just an unavoidable evil. Whoever is not able to see in war an idea and in the conduct of war a hypothetical necessity, must at some time fail mentally or psychologically due to the distress caused by the conduct of war.
No “justification” of war is required. It is much more about that a correct position, a just standpoint on war is found.
The reality of war is harsh and brutal. Its state is for the soldier who has overcome Russia’s ice fields, the swamps of impenetrable forests, the scorching heat breeze of the sand-storm whipped deserts, who in rain and cold, day in and day out, must wait for countless nights for an ever looming enemy, for an unknown fate, which can fulfill itself destroying at any moment, sometimes hardly bearable. The state of constant threat can have such a burdening, such a hopelessly crushing effect that the soldier forced to live in this state can be driven by the desperate idea of having to be smashed by the pressure of this state.
The moment of war conduct shows only the destructive side of war, it sometimes requires the thought of an entire generation until war itself is recognized and experienced as rejuvenating and testifying power.
The soldier acting in war requires less an “intelligence” esteemed in bourgeois life than instead precisely the character often enough despised in eras of bourgeois imperturbability.If the great soldier Boyen posited the demand that the soldier should look forward to war, then precisely this teacher of war means by this not, say, a vain patriotism, which wants to acquire cheap laurels in the often enough quoted happy-go-lucky wars, rather that bearing of the soldier, determined and ready for action, who wants to experience in war the great test of his ability in order to know himself and his warrior essence confirmed.
God and Folk – Soldierly Affirmation
Translated from the Third Reich original Gott und Volk – Soldatisches Bekenntnis, which was published by the Theodor Fritsch Verlag in Berlin. The author describes himself as a youth of the Weimar Republic generation, soldier and National Socialist activist. But his name is not provided. Christianity is rejected. Service to the God-given folk is proclaimed true meaning of life and ultimate religious act. Fulfillment of duty replaces salvation and heaven. And honor outweighs love. The chapter titles are: Our Path, Decision, Revolution of the Soul, God, Germany, Life, Death, Duty, Honor, Love, Hate, Guilt, Our Task.
Our faith is carried by two ideas: God and folk. They are the holiest and highest ideas that we know. As old as the human species is the question about the deepest sources of our life. As long as human beings exist, they have pondered and searched: Who is God? Where is God? Some found him in light, in nature, in life. Their religions have been young and strong, because they derive from the eternal. And only healthy and strong folks could be bearers of this healthy faith.
Others have not penetrated so deep. Because their hearts no longer pulsed pure and powerful, because their blood was poisoned. Or because their nature demanded a Biblical God. How could a folk in whose land “milk and honey flowed”, to whom heaven brought the harvest with arms spread wide, achieve that serious faith of fate [Schickalsglaube] of Nordic man, who struggled with the earth and with his fate. The oriental, from whose homeland Christianity came to us, has only remained an observer of God. His soul has never been able to soar into those pure heights in which Nordic man strides powerful and devout. Since he never had to win his God over doubting and seeking, rather just saw how he bestowed and punished, his last question went: Who is God? So he created for himself an image of that power that we dare only to surmise. He gave him the shape and language and the weaknesses and strengths of human spirit. He forced the divinity into letters and formulas. And a Christian church finally set them into chains. God just was no longer a clever, powerful being in human form, who sat on his throne up there in heaven as a kind father or punishing master, with whom one could talk and trade, yes, whom one could deceive and trick. The “Holy Scriptures” are full of such blasphemy. The Christian God is derived from this Jewish God of imperfection. The dear, all-knowing father, who also sits in heaven and gave his commandments to us sinful earth worms.
Anton Holzner (the pseudonym for SS-Sturmbannführer Albert Hartl) was a former Catholic priest (!) who left the priesthood and the church and became an SS officer!
Providence rules over the fate of people and folks.
This affirmation of a higher power should stand at the beginning of this book.
Countless Germans – laymen, priests and monks – have waged the most difficult inner and outer struggles for their simple belief in a God since natural German faith has been supplanted by foreign missionaries.
Millions of people struggle today for the Almighty and his laws. “God’s Law” reports of this.
This account has grown from my own personal experience and the same experiences of more than a dozen friends – former Catholic priests and monks – which correspond to reality in their overall result and in their individual features. My wife, who stood at my side in building a new world, also participated in the composition of this publication.
Natural faith incorporates the highest moral responsible within it.
From that arose the obligation to publish this book.
Rome Against Reich: A Chapter of German History Around Bismarck
by Kurt Eggers. Translated from the Third Reich original published in 1935. This English translation by Gerhard Lauck was first published in 2007. A condemnation of political Catholicism in the Bismarck era.
The ship of the church danced on the waves, and the storm whipped into the rotten sails. It cracked and crackled in the beams and the old ship had more than one leak. One still tried to plug a leak here and there, and by appearances it seemed to work. But for how long? The ship would have probably held its own in calm times, but it is no longer up to the storm of the new time. It may be hard for the captain and the officers to see their ship’s end coming, and we can laugh with understanding, when they like to emphasis their soul-seller is seaworthy.
Today we do not want to talk at all about the situation in Germany. The memory of the church-political fighting is still too clear to have to refresh it. The most severe debates in the Evangelic camp as well have shown that the church definitely wishes to remain a spiritual reservation within – and, if necessary, against – the state. It is only a small step from spiritual to political struggle. Here as well, details are superfluous.
The spiritual power that we designate as the church – individual denominations do not count now – summons all its power, all its allies, in order to construct out of the daily struggle a struggle of ideas. Already audible are the voices of evil spirits beyond the border, those spirits that quickly fled upon the awakening of German spirit, and they speak of confederacy.
One seeks to lead the credulous church folk into the fight under the pretext as if dear God was personally at stake. And many a sheep in the pious herd emits a pitiful bah, because this or that bell-wether cut loose a cry of terror.
The struggle for the German soul must be waged with all determination. What is at stake is leading Germans out of the discord between blood and alien doctrine. What is at stake is eliminating the material of conflict in precisely the spiritual sphere that has cost the blood and soul of countless thousands of Germans.
Not by force! For the churches have in every era only gained from martyrdom,
Rather with knowledge! Through the clear seeing and researching of historical connections, through the presentation of secret cross-connections that intentionally sought to drive wedges into the folk.
In times when the life and honor of the folk are at stake, no considerations may be taken. Where freedom and honor compel action, the truth may no longer remain unspoken.
The treasonous activities of certain centralist circles in Germany are known. Too little known are the facts that led to the lost of German territory in the east and west! Too little known are the tricks of that Erzberger whom the folk judged.
Much of the background of separatist activity still awaits investigation.
In Austria, Christian cliques are at work to prevent and slay German freedom. Reflection and gathering of freedom-loving and nation-conscious circles on the one side, intensification of agitation, clouding of spiritual fronts, defamation and slander against everything conscious of its own kind on the other.
It is no longer about a struggle for the spirit, for the spirit has long since triumphed over the obscurantists. It is solely about power. Where the obscurantists cannot rule and pull strings unhindered, they scream about supression of freedom. Where they are in power and suppress freedom, they speak ingratiatingly about pacification in the name of God!
Germany’s spirit calls us to step forward in order to testify for the truth of the nation. We must administer the legacy of Walther von Vogelweide and Hutten, we must push forward in their spirit for the freedom of the folk.
We do not want a German to still suffer pains of conscience, whether he should obey the voice of his blood or the commands of whatever priests who serve an Asiatic god.
We want the great German unity, the genuine community of all German wanting, feeling and thinking.
The front of the church and of Christianity have been shaken, shot up and melted in the experience of the war.
Christians have wielded weapons against “Christians”. Christians have fetched “heathens” in order to kill Christians
The folk awakening followed the Christian disenchantment. Ask the assault soldiers, whether they went into the horror the battles of material with a Christian conception. Ask them, if you have the courage, ask those who sacrificed themselves again and again to speak of the cross!
Go to the young and old workers whose yearning is louder and stronger than the pulsating and hammering of motors and ask them, if they want to have the sweet comfort of the beyond!
Go to the young Germans whose yearning for folk and expanse, for struggle and heroism, is awake and admonishing, and ask them, if they want to renounce the struggle of this world for the sake of heaven!
The voice of the blood has cried out from the thousand-fold rape of everything German, which was carried out by agents of a foreign power, who claimed its kingdom was not of this earth, but which nonetheless took everything of this world, even the most primitive things, so seriously that no concordat emerges that does not deal with the question of money and possessions in the very earthly sense. One had indeed been able to silence Germans at the funeral pile, but not their souls. Stronger than the fanatical hatred of the weak against the strong; stronger than the drivel of morality puffed up decadence has remained the healthy sense of the folk, which only turned its back to the raging of men of the beyond with sublime contempt – unfortunately, sometimes as well when a fist-blow would have been more appropriate.
The German heart that undaunted overcame the horror of black barbarism is hated by the obscurantists. Germany has always dared to confront the cross of humiliation with the sun-symbol of victory, and hence those obsessed with the cross began a systematic war of extermination against the strong and life-centered people of the north. That is why one never wanted Germany to become a Reich. That is why one mocked that Germany would tear itself to pieces under Rome’s clever leadership!
This book about the culture battle that the champion of a strong, great, warrior-like Germany – Bismarck – had to endure, should show how Rome as well as certain circles of the “Evangelic center” spun a web in order to shackle and subjugate the young nation before it had really awakened to freedom.
Perhaps the book also contributes to proving as lie the claim of certain interested circles that Bismarck had been a Christian statesman.
And may then things be learned from the past for the present and for the future!

Summary of Our Demands
First, safeguard your health and, as long as you are at the age of development, be above all abstinent in regards to pleasure poisons (alcohol, nicotine) and sexual activity. (In this regard it should be remembered that precisely the Nordic person in general only reaches full maturity late.)
Second, marry as early as possible. Only then will you and your wife fully enjoy family joy.
Third, do not marry a breed-alien wife. You are responsible to your folk and your offspring for the purity of the blood.
Fourth, do not marry a genetically ill woman. You otherwise bear guilt for the suffering of your own children and grandchildren.
Fifth, choose a completely healthy woman for yourself. The true picture of the health condition and of the characteristics of your future wife are shown you by her clan.
Sixth, your wife should be racially at least as valuable as you.
Seventh, strive to get yourself and your children back to the land.
Eighth, avoid marriage with a relative, for unfavorable genetic traits almost always remain hidden to you and then manifest themselves twice as strong in your children.
Ninth, you must preserve your gene pool for your folk in the largest possible number of children. In your children you live on.
SS Viewpoint – Volume Five: SS Lead Articles 1941-1942
Translated from the SS newspaper Das Schwarze Korps, select articles from 1941 to 1945. Each volume is focused on a specific theme. If you enjoyed our SS Culture and SS Creed series, you’ll enjoy this series as well.
We do not presume to rule the world, to tell Indians how they should arrange their existence, or to tell Americans how to better organize their continent. Our opinion that East Asia belongs to the East Asians comes from our most sincere heart. We only want to establish ourselves where we can also maintain ourselves in the long-run. Our living space should not be larger than our life can really fill with the strength of our hearts, with the might of our swords and the fertility of our clans.
The plutocrats, however, indeed traders, shopkeepers and speculators, live in a world of unrealities. Only during the short apparent bloom of mercantilism did they appear to be the great realists, whose “sense of reality” dominated the world. On what is their claim based and on what is their power based?
In Australia, the descendants of a handful of adventurers occupy a continent. Their land acquisition met no resistance from the infinitely primitive natives. Literally taken, they moved into an empty house. But does an empty house always belong to whoever moves in? The Australians were only happy with their property so long as nobody showed up to contest it. They have nothing to show except right of custom. No folk energy, no weapons, not even a colonial achievement. But Japan knocks at the gate of their still empty house with its overwhelming folk energy, with the might of its weapons and with its mission to creatively shape Greater East Asia, which is assigned to it by fate. The 100 million Japanese must live in this space. The 6 million Australians do not have to.
The 100 million Japanese are a reality. The 6 million Australians are just the victims of a false world-view that confuses the transitory power of money with history-forming forces.
Because the many millennia old Chinese Empire has in the last centuries experienced a political-spiritual depression, the British and American traders, missionaries and their armed guards have been able to established themselves in its life centers and strangle. Their legal rights were only to be read by the rates of a few East Asian stock shares. They held as long as East Asia was weak and disunited. Their days are numbered since Japan sets out to fulfill its “Prussian” task in Greater East Asia.
Translated from the rare original SS picture book “Der Untermensch”.
As long as there are men on the earth, the struggle between man and subhuman with be the historical rule; this Jewish-led struggle against the folks, as far back as we can look, belongs to the natural course of life on our planet. One can safely be convinced that this struggle for life and death is just as much a law of nature as the struggle of an infection against a healthy body.”
Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler 1935
Just like night rises against day, just like light and shadow are eternally hostile – so is the greatest enemy of world-dominating man, man himself.
The subhuman – that biologically apparently same shaped creation of nature with hands, feet and a kind of brain, with eyes and mouth, is nonetheless a totally different, a terrible creature, is only an approximation of man, with human-like facial features – spiritually, psychologically, however, standing lower than any animal. Inside this being a chaos of wild, uninhibited passions: nameless will to destruction, most primitive desires, most undisguised baseness.
Subhuman – nothing else!
For not everything with a human face is equal.
Woe to whomever forgets that!
Whatever this earth possesses in great works, ideas and arts – man has conceived, created and perfected it; he reflected and invented, for him there was only one goal: to work his way upward into a higher existence, to shape the inadequate, to replace the insufficient with something better.
So developed culture.
So developed the plough, the tool, the house.
So did man become social, so developed family, so developed folk, so developed state. So did man become good and great. So did he rise far above all living beings.
So did he become second to God!
But the subhuman also lived. He hated the work of the other. He raged against it, secretly as thief, openly as slanderer – as murderer. He associated with his own kind.
The beast called the beast.
Never did the subhuman give peace, never did he give rest. For he needed the half-dark, chaos.
He shunned the light of cultural progress.
He needed for self-preservation the swamp, hell, but not the sun.
And this underworld of subhumans found its leader: the eternal Jew!
He understood them, he knew what they wanted. He fed their most base lusts and desires, he let the terror come over humanity.
It began in the historical time of the annihilation of the Persians, the Purim Fest, the first glorification of organized mass murder. 75,000 Aryan Persians fell victim to Jewish hatred. Even today, Jewry celebrates this deed of horror as its greatest “religious” holiday.
Eternal is the hatred of the subhuman against the light figures, the carriers of light. Eternally does the decline of the west threaten from the deserts.
Eternally do the powers of destruction gather together in the distant steppe, do Attila and Jenghiz Khan mass their hun hordes and race across Europe, leaving behind a living apocalypse, fire and death, rape, murder and terror, so that the world of light and thousand-fold knowledge, the powers of progress and human greatness, sink back into the abyss of primeval condition.
Eternal is the subhuman’s desire:
That it again becomes desert, where the light of sublime knowledge creatively illuminates the darkness, then his final goal would be achieved, chaos.
So does the struggle of both opposites happen for millennia in accordance to terrible, incalculable laws; again and again there is an Attila, a Jenghiz Khan, who rips open Europe’s gate, who knows only one thing: the total destruction of everything beautiful!
The embodiment of this will for destruction is today called Bolshevism! But this Bolshevism is not a manifestation of our time. It is not a product of our days! It is also nothing new in the framework of human history. Rather it is as old as the Jew himself. His pioneers are named Lenin – Stalin.
“The leading minds in a folk are butchered, and then it comes into governmental, economical, cultural, spiritual, psychological and bodily slavery. The rest of the folk, robbed of its own value through countless blood mixtures – becomes deformed – and in the historically short course of centuries one knows at best that such a folk had once existed.”
Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler 1935

Germanic Life Will
Our National Socialist worldview replaces the liberal concept of the individual and the Marxist concept of humanity with the folk, which is based on blood and soil. A very simple statement, yet with huge ramifications.
For perhaps the first time in human history, in our land we realize that of all the tasks we face, the most noble and hence the most holy for men is the preservation of our Godgiven, blood based kind.
It is not for men to judge why Providence created races, rather just to realize that it punishes those who mistreat its creation. Just as the knowledge that the earth revolves around the sun led to a great change in the general worldview, so will the blood and race teachings of the National Socialist movement produce a major change in the view of human history and the future.
This will not lead to an alienation of the folks – quite the contrary, it will lead for the first time to genuine understanding.
If the first time in its history the German folk has achieved greater unity, this is due to the influence of this inner experience.
Countless prejudices will be destroyed, many barriers will be brushed aside as inconsequential, bad traditions will fade, old symbols will lose their value, out of the impotence of regional, dynastic, ideological, religious and political division arises the German folk carrying its banner of unity, which symbolically does not document the victory of a state, rather of a racial principle.
Reichstag Speech of January 30, 1937
Defender Against Bolshevism
by Reichsführer SS Heinrich Himmler. English translations of Himmler’s writings are rare! Here’s your chance to get one at low cost. Translated from the original SS Third Reich book.
Today much is said about BOLSHEVISM. Most people think Bolshevism is phenomenon that emerged during the present time. Many even believe that Bolshevism – this JEWISH ORGANIZED and led struggle of sub-humanity – is totally new in world history.
We believe it is important to establish that as long as there have been men on earth, the STRUGGLE BETWEEN HUMANS AND SUB-HUMANS HAS BEEN THE HISTORICAL RULE. This Jewish led war against the folks has belonged to the natural course of life on our planet as long back as we can see. One can comfortably say this struggle for life and death is as much a law of nature as man’s fight against pestilence and the attack by pestilence against the healthy body.
It is hence necessary to study a few very clear EXAMPLES of the METHODS OF THEIR STRUGGLE FROM THE PAST TO OUR PRESENT TIME in order to recognize the TACTICS OF THE JEWISH-BOLSHEVIK ENEMY.
SS Culture – Volume Three: SS Faith
Translated from original SS publications. The articles are about SS “religiosity”. They are arranged in the chronological order of the SS magazine issues where they appeared, ranging from volume four in 1938 to volume ten in 1944. The original illustrations are also included.
We are Germans. As Germans we also want to step before our God. We want to step before him upright as that, which we are, as soldiers.
Soldiers know their law. They have sworn to a leader and a flag. They await the call, they heed the order, they obey it.
Who has sworn to a leader, no longer doubts. He was gained a firm faith.
This faith gives him his security, his proud straightness, his silent readiness. Who is always so on the march to a great goal, who is so ready, to risk his life as well, has already won eternity in the earthly. When he then steps before his God, before the God of his folk, he will not ask him for what men can give and present him, he will not ask for what he is always ready to risk in this great struggle; God is not a trader, God is not a kind old man who is smilingly inclined to childish wishes.
We feel him as the strength that allows us to give ourselves strength.
Lord, do not let me become cowardly, called the unknown soldier of the World War when he demanded the hardest from himself.
That we do not lose our courage, that we not over-esteem all joy, that we gain new strength from suffering, that is what we ask for.
The peasant’s harvest may be destroyed by hail, his hard labour may be annihilated by drought, can be just go there and complain and want to do nothing more? No, he should step before his God and ask for what alone can help him to overcome this blow, he should ask for the strength that pulls him up again, that again gives him light in the eyes, defiance in the fists and the courage to try it again.
One may have given everything to people whom he valued and whom he loved, and now one disappoints and deceives him; should his heart be allowed to turn to stone, to mock loyalty and disavow the noble? No, he should step before his God and has him for what alone can still help him, he should ask for the strength that shows him that loyalty is stronger than betrayal, that faith conquers doubt, that courage is more compelling than distress. Has he not recognized everything that threatens him? Has he not nonetheless dared the path and the struggle?
We have sought comrades who can still laugh in distress, who in death still believe in victory. And so many died, and they believed in victory, because they believed in us. Because we remember them, we are already stronger; because we remember them, the path has already been shown to us.
So for all of us the order is valid to anew look for people, who believe in us, for their sake and for our sake.
As the peasant again draws his plough, so must our love again be active and our loyalty.
Not according to those should we orient, who are smaller than we, rather according to those who provide us with an example.
We are Germans, and if we ask for help, he directs us to those who once stood great in our folk.
They are not dead, we feel that in such an hour. They are not dead, because their faith, their courage, their will was greater than everything that stood against them, even greater than dying.
And so they today still speak to us, and God speaks through them. For as he had us awaken to this life as Germans, so do we feel his command when we strive to think and to act as the best Germans managed.
Although we cannot make for ourselves a picture or image of God, so nonetheless sense his presence in everything, and we sense it most deeply where we approach the high and noble. In the great Germans he has spoken to us. There will probably come hours when we sl
