We don't usually hear anything positive about WW11 Germany, and this piece has propaganda undertones, but it can't be denied that the victors have benefited greatly from German high technology.

Nazi Germany Had Unequalled Quality of Life, US and British Soldiers Looted it Out of Existence

Mike Walsh Mon, Sep 23, 2019


Only now can the story break through the media’s censorship of real history:
“The sacking of Germany after her unconditional surrender will go down in history as one of the most monstrous acts of modern times. Its excess beggar’s description and its magnitude defy condemnation.” ~ Ralph F. Keeling, Gruesome Harvest; 1947. The Institute of American Economics.​
Keeling didn’t mince his words:
“When we arrived the Germans were strongly anti-Communist; they have since started fleeing our zone and entering the Russian where they are welcomed into the Communist Party and even into the Red Army, in whose ranks they may someday be able to get their revenge on us.”​




Elegance and Fashion in the Reich was world-class
Mainstream media air-brushes the scale of Allied looting of defeated Germany. Upon its conquest, Germany’s wealth was first to be liberated. Every house and every apartment was entered, searched, and stripped of everything valuable and moveable, jewellery, silverware, and works of art, clothing, household appliances, and money.


Elegance and Class in Hitler’s Reich equalled that of Paris

Stores, shops and warehouses were ransacked. Farms were deprived of their farm animals, machinery, seed stocks, fodder, wine, food stocks. Telephones were removed, telegraph equipment dismantled. Cars, trucks, even fire engines were seized. The Americans, Russian and British troops found themselves knee-deep in the remnants of a standard of living that most could only dream about.


Innovation and engineering elegance in Hitler’s Germany was world class.

William H. G. Stoneman Foreign Correspondent, Chicago Daily News May, 1945:
“Millions of dollars’ worth of rare things varying from intricate Zeiss lenses to butter and cheese and costly automobiles are being destroyed because the Army has not organized a system of recovery of valuable enemy material.” The term ‘recovery’ is a euphemism for looting.​



Reich achievements were never matched for decades afterwards

He went on to describe, scattered everywhere, millions of dollars’ worth of plundered goods. The troops simply could not carry everything that they could steal so they vandalized it and left it to rot. It is estimated that the value of looted properties by the allied armies ran into hundreds of millions of dollars and ‘deprived the German civilian population the comforts and necessities so sorely needed.”

Standards of living in Hitler’s Germany were incomparable elsewhere

In a displaying of breathtaking chutzpah, the Soviets complained that,

“American officials have stolen equipment from plants in a zone earmarked for shipment to Russia and sold it to foreign countries at a profit.”​


Chicago Sunday Tribune, which back then was a great deal more honest than media today, was damning:
“No effective steps were taken to discourage looting by the invading armies during the war. It was tolerated under such euphemism as ‘souvenir collecting.”​


The quality of life in the Reich was a world best


Over 200 German art masterpieces were looted by the American armed forces and are still held under lock and key in the United States. The British were equally piratical:

“The British seem to be everywhere when there is any scientific or industrial information to be gleaned.”​


Germans during the Reich lived an enviable life
Hand-in-hand with the plundering of Germany was the removal its means to trade: The production of shipbuilding, manufacture and operation of aircraft, ball and taper roller bearings, all heavy machine tools, heavy materials, aluminium, magnesium, beryllium, vanadium, radioactive materials, hydrogen peroxide, synthetic oils, gasoline, ammonia, ceased.

Ralph F. Keeling:

“German science has been destroyed, and with it German ability to compete commercially with the war victors.”​
He goes on to say:
“We even managed to kidnap a large number from the western Russian zone when we retired to let the Russians take over. As a consequence, we now have at our disposal hundreds of German scientists who no doubt constitute one of our most profitable acquisitions taken from the fallen Reich.

Assistant Secretary of State, William L. Clayton, on June 1945 was equally candid: “We intend to secure the full disclosure of all existing German technology and invention for the benefit of the United Nations (sic).”​

Life in the Reich was superlative

America’s pre-war isolationist policies came to an end. By 1945 Winston Churchill, the unelected premier of a bankrupt Britain had placed much of the British Empire’s assets with Wall Street’s pawnbrokers. Bloated on war plunder a now expansionist United States was to build on its ill-gotten gains for the next 75 years.


Reich lifestyle was unmatched

Nick Cook, Aerospace Consultant for Jane’s Defence Weekly wrote in the Daily Mail August 19, 2001:
“A lot of the (American) expertise on anti-gravity dated from decades earlier and National Socialist Germany in particular. Much of what formed the basis of the Skunk Works’ (Lockheed) projects came from the German technology and expertise plundered by the Allies at the end of the Second World War. Germany was a treasure trove of desirable technology, covering everything from weaponry to electronics to textiles and medicine.

Briton Ian Fleming, who was later to write the James Bond novels, set up what was virtually a private army tasked with ‘tech-plunder’. However, the British were ill-prepared to take advantage of the opportunities that faced them. The more resourceful (rapacious) Americans simply removed the paperwork for hundreds of thousands of patents and shipped them home. According to the US Office of Technical Services, the body set up to ensure that German technology was rapidly moved into American industry, the documents contained a wealth of material which “very likely contained practically all the scientific, industrial and military secrets of National Socialist Germany.”​


Compared to UK, US and USSR depression the Reich flourished

Under the term ‘reparations’ millions of German peoples were transported to the Soviet gulags to be used as slave labour. For the large part these unfortunates, women and children included, were sealed in American made rolling stock and transported across a railway infrastructure built on slave labour using Western-made materials.


Ralph Keeling says:
“At Potsdam, Russia was apportioned the lion’s share of reparations. She was to receive her own zone (East Germany/East Berlin) plus 25% from other zones.”​
The value of Germany’s bombed and battered plant was put at between 5 and 10 billion dollars; half of it was in the Russian zone and was now the Soviet Union’s ‘by right of conquest’. It was agreed that 40% of it could be removed to the USSR. Three hundred and ten plants were dismantled and accordingly removed.



Mercedes-Benz T80 Museum, Stuttgart, Baden-Württemberg, Germany. Officially sanctioned by Adolf Hitler (a race car fan influenced by Stuck), the project was started in 1937, while the Nazi Third Reich was at the height of its powers. Automotive designer Dr.Ferdinand Porsche first targeted a speed of 342 mph, but after George Eyston’s and John Cobb’s successful LSR runs of 1938 and 1939 the target speed was raised to 373 mph.
Off they went:
“Six shiploads carrying the physical assets of the Deschmag Shipyard, Germany’s largest shipbuilding company. Twenty carloads of machinery and tools valued at $5,000,000, representing half of Germany’s largest ball-bearing plant, the Gendorf Amorgana Chemical works valued at $10,000,000, and the vast Daimler-Benz underground aircraft engine plant.”​
According to Reparations Commissioner, Edwin W. Pauley, the United States had earmarked 144 plants for removal to Russia. Many of Germany’s greatest producers of civilian goods were dismantled and shipped eastwards. Among them were the two largest factories, the largest sugar refineries, the largest grain processing mills in Europe, the great Bemberg silk mills famous for their hosiery and lingerie, and the Zeiss Optical works at Jena. All secondary rail lines were torn up and all-electric locomotives removed. Two hundred key plants were placed under direct Russian control, with the German workforce of 1,300,000 on subsistence wages, the profits going to the USSR.”


Village May Day – Germany – 1930s – Architecture of the Third Reich – Adolf Hitler – Deutschland Ostmark
“Russia is as keen to get as much loot as possible to help make her Five Year Plan successful, and ultimately to absorb the Reich into the Soviet Union.”

“France is ravenous for loot, has been anxious to destroy Germany forever, wants to get rid of Germany as a trade competitor, while retaining her as a market for British goods,” wrote Ralph Franklin Keeling. He added that “German nationals of Latin American nations were to be picked up and sent to Europe as slaves.”​


The pillage of the defeated Reich reached across German borders: Switzerland, Sweden, Spain, and other countries were forced to hand over to the United States, all German assets, investments and properties. In what amounted to an obituary of a once trading rival Keeling solemnly writes:
“Taking their foreign trade away from them, and making it impossible for them to export manufactured goods was tantamount, therefore, to pronouncing the death sentence on the German people.”​

The quality of life there is still pretty decent. No speed limits so you can run 200 plus MPH on your way to work. Definitely not a nanny state like we have in the US.

I wonder how Switzerland was forced to do anything with its bank assets.
Interesting.

Germany is still the source of world class quality even after being plundered, pillaged, and bombed into the dark ages. They make the best cars, industrial equipment, robotics, etc. and produce the best engineers and scientists in the world, still.

I'm thinking that the Germans got off easy. In the siege of Leningrad alone the Germans starved to death at least 800,000 civilians. The Soviet Union and Germans even had just signed a non-aggression treaty. Yet, total Soviets killed due to the Germans were some 25 million people. So yeah, take their shit- all of it- at an absolute minimum.

Wrong. There is no speed limit on the Autobahn. Germany is an occupied police state in every other way.

It would have been profitable to be a wheelbarrow producer, making wheelbarrows to haul all that wonderful german money in to buy a loaf of bread


Germany Was The Best! oh yeah,

im appalled their elite have restructured and regrouped and have begun to reintroduce their power and control over the German people...

3 months after signing that non aggression treaty the Soviets invaded Finland. The Soviets also invaded Poland a couple of weeks after the German invasion .....I won’t bring up the Katyn massacre. No declaration of war from England either.

You think the Bolsheviks were going to stop there?

Let’s not forget millions of Germans died after the war in POW/Slave labor camps. Russian rapes on German women living in the Soviet occupation zone went on for years after the war.
Let’s not forget the hundreds of thousands of ethnic Germans living in other countries for decades prior to WW2 (Poland, Czech, Romania, etc...) that were forced to pack a bag and surrender their homes, farms, businesses, etc... and start hiking to Germany.

Got off easy... harsh punishment is what lead to ww2. Germany had little options other than war, although hitler took it too far.

It's a common argument but it doesn't square with the fact that within 20 years of the 1919 signing of the Versailles treaty ending WW1, Germany had the resources to invade Poland and the Czech republic and was well on their way to conquering the rest of the world. They almost pulled that off. That's a remarkable achievement considering the intervening hyperinflation of the '20s and the depression of the '30s.

...Let’s not forget millions of Germans died after the war in POW/Slave labor camps...
Most estimates put the number at less than a million dead but they did have some 3 million POWs at the end of the war. Germans abused the captured Russians horribly just as the Russians abused the Germans (the Japs were- hands down- the absolute worst). But even the Allies (edit) were complicit by turning over many thousands of Germans who had surrendered to them, back over to the Russians.

War is HELL!

Edit to add: The Russians were Allies too. Should have said Americans instead of Allies.

The Allies sent an entire ship of refugees, they had actually made it to safety on a large boat, they sent the entire boat back to Germany

some here just think the boat was full of potatoes...that's a shame


parts of me believe we never left the evil behind...parts of me believe the entire world lost itself at that time, but no, humans have been fools for centuries...will continue to be so again, through the centureis...

All wars are bankers wars. Banks finance both sides and the mass media instigates them. What amazes me is that there are people who actually believe history written by the financiers and their media and entertainment industry.
Hollywood made some two hundred WW2/Holocaust movies to reinforce their story yet there is practically nothing on the greatest mass genocide war....the Bolshevik Revolution, which was also financed and instigated by the same entity.

Hollywood/mass media portrays the villains as victims and the victims as villains and the teevee addled masses believe it.

Hollywood 'brainstorms' with the CIA, regularly
They play out potential scenarios, scenarios that the CIA suspects as a potential activity, scenarios that they can't quite get their minds wrapped around, so, they go see the sci-fi writers and producers who reside in 'dreamland' and take away answers which now require them to come up with scenarios to resolve the 'What was the question' issue

This is why some of the stuff we see being produced from Hollywood which actually appears to imitate life...that is NOT a coincidence

the cia has plays in their book that were planned for decades ago...
Hollywood = CIA is not a stretch of the imagination

No one seems to want to mention

"Where did Germany get A LOT of their wealth?"

From country's that they conquered and jailed and in a lot of cases, they used the 'final solution' (ovens)

Go watch "Monuments Men" in case you don't know the facts - yeah it's a movie, but it IS a true s.tory

Here is the Truth. My mother-in-law who was wonderful to me was a German child in Frankfurt during the war. Her home was occupied by Americans who spit in her food and held them in contempt for all of the problems caused by Germans. The Americans were not rapists on a significant scale, nor was she raped. She later married my FIL who brought her to America.

Most Germans supported Hitler until things turn against them. Any other story is pure fiction.

If any Hollywood depiction of WW2 is the whole truth, then tell us why there aren't 200 Hollywood movies about the Bolshevik Revolution.

True story; ya sure.

Reed interviewed concentration camp prisoners and only 2 to 3 percent were Jews, about in line with their amount in the general population.

Western media dropped the fact that most of the prisoners were German's and instead said all the prisoners were Jews.

War starts with the liars telling lies.

Unless enough people wake up and bulldoze the MSM into the Stone Age!!!!

I can't speak for past long dead civilizations before human kind on our planet, but it seems this is the first generation of human beings which has the internet and the MSM, politicians and TPTB cannot hide their sins as there could before. Pandora's Box is wide opened now. Let's see if this time things will indeed be different!
