Lost for words,----------- well printable ones anyway.
Thanks for posting VP
I hope the Mossad pays a late night visit to some of these creeps, if they are still alive.
Thanks for posting though
What vile, deluded scum.
Shocking, but if the nazis had invaded Britian there would have been a few ready to join them.
Some right characters on there.
Well, I just got around to watching the whole thing, and I too mostly came away with 'fascinating'.
People are strange, complex, and interesting creatures, and these people grew up in the strangest times.
Regret, bitterness, experience, pride, caring & not caring, propaganda, youth, stupidity, cleverness, survival instinct... and honesty; all there in this film.
It all happened, we know that, but I'd rather the individual's story were told than hidden away, whether we like that story or not.
Every country would and did have the same few. The examples in this video seem to be to some degree from the lower orders and thus motivated by the will to 'improve' their situation. The worst group were those that did not require the same stimulus, especially a few that were in very privileged positions.
The absolute hatred for Mussert expressed by one chap was interesting.
You could feel exactly where he thought the real blame lay for the entire unhappy business. Mussert & his kind.
I'd tend to agree, on the whole; young men have assorted motivations, but it takes a leader to mould thoughts into events.
Agreed. I came across this letter a while ago
Thanks for posting VP.
Here's some info on the German-American Bund
I'm sorry, but I find it all too convenient an excuse to use. Wrong is wrong.
Why does being poor give them the right to beat the snot out of Jews or Bolsheviks? Or just become murdering little bastards?
Funny how there's always an excuse and that most never knew what was really going on. I've read a few stories form Heer regiments...even they knew what was going on. Even they knew what the SS were like and they weren't even in it.
No, I don't believe them, strangely.
Where did anyone say it (social position...or anything else) gave them a right to do stuff, Combover?
All I can see is people commenting on how that might provide fertile ground for recruiters like Mussert. Which, in many cases, it did.
Separate names with a comma.
