Nigel Jonesfrom The Telegraph (U.K.) reviews — After the Reich: From the Liberation of Vienna to the Berlin Airlift
Giles MacDonogh is a bon viveur and a historian of wine and gastronomy, but in this book, pursuing his other consuming interest – German history – he serves a dish to turn the strongest of stomachs. It makes particularly uncomfortable reading for those who compare the disastrous occupation of Iraq unfavourably to the post-war settlement of Germany and Austria.
MacDonogh argues that the months that followed May 1945 brought no peace to the shattered skeleton of Hitler’s Reich, but suffering even worse than the destruction wrought by the war. After the atrocities that the Nazis had visited on Europe, some degree of justified vengeance by their victims was inevitable, but the appalling bestialities that MacDonogh documents so soberly went far beyond that. The first 200 pages of his brave book are an almost unbearable chronicle of human suffering.
His best estimate is that some [3,000,000] Germans died unnecessarilyAFTER the official end of hostilities. A million soldiers vanished before they could creep back to the holes that had been their homes. The majority of them died in Soviet captivity (of the 90,000 who surrendered at Stalingrad, only 5,000 eventually came home) but, shamefully, many thousands perished as prisoners of the Anglo-Americans. Herded into cages along the Rhine, with no shelter and very little food, they dropped like flies. Others, more fortunate, toiled as slave labour in a score of Allied countries, often for years. Incredibly, some Germans were still being held in Russia as late as 1979.
The [2,000,000] German civilians who died were largely the old [people], women and children: victims of disease, cold, hunger, suicide – and mass murder.
Apart from the well-known repeated rape of virtually every girl and woman unlucky enough to be in the Soviet occupation zones, perhaps the most shocking outrage recorded by MacDonogh – for the first time in English – is the slaughter of a quarter of a millionSudeten Germans by their vengeful Czech compatriots. The survivors of this ethnic cleansing, naked and shivering, were pitched across the border, never to return to their homes. Similar scenes were seen across Poland, Silesia and East Prussia as age-old German communities were brutally expunged.
Given that what amounted to a lesser Holocaust was unfolding under their noses, it may be asked why the western Allies did not stop this venting of long-dammed-up rage on the (mainly) innocent. MacDonogh’s answer is that it could all have been even worse.

The US Treasury Secretary, Henry Morgenthau, favoured turning Germany into a gigantic farm, and there were genocidal Nazi-like schemes afoot to starve, sterilise or deport the population of what was left of the bombed-out cities.
The discovery of the Nazi death camps stoked Allied fury, with General George Patton asking an aide amid the horrors of Buchenwald: ‘Do you still find it hard to hate them?’ But the surviving inmates were soon replaced by German captives – Dachau, Buchenwald, Sachsenhausen and even Auschwitz stayed in business after the war, only now with the Germans behind the wire.
It was Realpolitik, not humanitarian concern, that caused a swift shift in western attitudes towards their former foes. Fear of Communism spreading into the heart of Europe, and the barbarities of the Russians – who kidnapped and killed hundreds of their perceived enemies from the western zones of Berlin and Vienna – belatedly made the West realise that they had beaten one totalitarian power only to be threatened by another.
Even that hard-line, Kraut-hater Patton was sacked for advocating a pre-emptive strike against Russia. Building up West Germany and saving Berlin from Soviet strangulation with the 1948 airlift became the first battles of the Cold War – even if that meant overlooking Nazi crimes and enlisting Nazi criminals in the ‘economic miracle’ of reconstruction.
Although MacDonogh roundly condemns all the occupying powers, the British emerge with some credit. Apart from one Air Marshal who looted art treasures; and an MI5 interrogator nicknamed ‘Tin Eye’ Stephens who ran a private torture chamber, British hands may have been grubby, but were not deeply blood-stained. British squaddies preferred to purchase their sex privately with a packet of fags or a pair of nylons, rather than in the Soviet style.
MacDonogh has written a grueling but important book. This unhappy story has long been cloaked in silence since telling it suited no one. Not the Allies, because it placed them near the moral nadir of the Nazis; nor the Germans, because they did not wish to be accused of whitewashing Hitler by highlighting what was, by any standard, a war crime. Giles MacDonogh has told a very inconvenient truth.

From the desk of Fjordman
Last year I wrote an article about how Swedish society is disintegrating and is in danger of collapsing, at least in certain areas and regions. The country that gave us Bergman, ABBA and Volvo could become known as the Bosnia of northern Europe. The “Swedish model” would no longer refer to a stable and peaceful state with an advanced economy, but to a Eurabian horror story of utopian multiculturalism, socialist mismanagement and runaway immigration. Some thought I was exaggerating, and that talk of the possibility of a future civil war in Sweden was pure paranoia. Was it?
RISE UP and FIGHT BACK, Sweden … it’s in your genes!
In a new sociological survey (pdf in Swedish, with brief English introduction) entitled “Vi krigar mot svenskarna” (“We’re waging a war against the Swedes”), young immigrants in the troubled city of Malmö have been interviewed about why they are involved in crime. Although it is not stated, most of the immigrant perpetrators are Muslims. In one of the rare instances where the Swedish media actually revealed the truth, the newspaper Aftonbladet reported several years ago that 9 out of 10 of the most criminal ethnic groups in Sweden came from Muslim countries. This must be borne in mind whilst reading the following newspaper article:
Immigrants are “waging war” against Swedes through robbery
The wave of robberies the city of Malmö has witnessed during this past year is part of a “war against the Swedes.” This is the explanation given by young robbers from immigrant backgrounds when questioned about why they only rob native Swedes, in interviews with Petra Åkesson for her thesis in sociology. “I read a report about young robbers in Stockholm and Malmö and wanted to know why they rob other youths. It usually does not involve a lot of money,” she says. She interviewed boys between 15 and 17 years old, both individually and in groups.
Almost 90% of all robberies reported to the police were committed by gangs … not individuals.
“When we are in the city and robbing we are waging a war, waging a war against the Swedes.” This argument was repeated several times. “Power for me means that the Swedes shall look at me, lie down on the ground and kiss my feet.” The boys explain, laughingly, that “there is a thrilling sensation in your body when you’re robbing, you feel satisfied and happy, it feels as if you’ve succeeded, it simply feels good.”
“It’s so easy to rob Swedes, so easy.” “We rob every single day, as often as we want to, whenever we want to.” The immigrant youth regard the Swedes as stupid and cowardly: “The Swedes don’t do anything, they just give us the stuff. They’re so wimpy.” The young robbers do not plan their crimes: “No, we just see some Swedes that look rich or have nice mobile phones and then we rob them.”
Why do they hate the Swedes so much? “Well, they hate us,” Petra Åkesson (Sri Lankan adoptee) reports them as answering. “When a Swede goes shopping, the lady behind the counter gives him the money back into his hand, looks into his eyes and laughs. When we go shopping, she puts the money on the counter and looks the other way.”
Åkesson, who is adopted fromSri Lanka and hence does not look like a native Swede, says it was not difficult to get the boys to talk about their crimes. Rather they were bragging about who had committed the most robberies. Malin Åkerström, a professor in sociology, sees only one solution to the problem: “Jobs for everybody. If this entails a deregulation of the labor market to create more jobs, then we should do so.”
It is interesting to note that these Muslim immigrants state quite openly that they are involved in a “war,” and see participation in crime and harassment of the native population as such. This is completely in line with what I have posited before. SWEDEN
The number of RAPE CHARGES IN SWEDEN HAS QUADDRUPLED (400%) in just above twenty years. Rape cases involving children under the age of 15 are six times (up 600%) as common today as they were a generation ago. Most other kinds of violent crime have rapidly increased, too. Instability is spreading to most urban and suburban areas. Resident aliens from Algeria, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia dominate the group of rape suspects. Lawyer Ann Christine Hjelm found that 85% of the convicted rapists were born on foreign soil or from foreign parents.
The phenomenon is not restricted to Sweden. The number of rapes committed by Muslim immigrants in Western nations is so extremely high that it is difficult to view these rapes as merely random acts of individuals. It resembles warfare. This is happening in most Western European countries, as well as in other non-muslim countries such as India.
European jails are filling up with Muslims imprisoned for robberies and all kinds of violent crimes, and Muslims bomb European civilians. One can see the mainstream media are struggling to make sense of all of this. That is because they cannot, or do not want to, see the obvious: this is exactly how an invading army would behave: rape, pillage and bombing. If many of the Muslim immigrants see themselves as conquerors in a war, it all makes perfect sense.
Malmö in Sweden, set to become the first Scandinavian city with a Muslim majority within a decade or two, has nine times as many reported robberies per capita as Copenhagen, Denmark. Yet the number one priority for the political class in Swedenduring this year’s national election campaign seems to be demonizing neighboring Denmark for “xenophobia” and a “brutal” debate about Muslim immigration.
During last years Jihad riots in France, SWEDEN’s Social Democratic Prime Minister Göran Perssoncriticised the way the French government handled the unrest in the country. “It feels like a very hard and confrontational approach.” Persson also rejected the idea of more local police as a “first step” in Sweden. “I don’t believe that’s the way we would choose in Sweden. To start sending out signals about strengthening the police is to break with the political line we have chosen to follow,” he said.
Meanwhile, as their authorities have largely abandoned their third largest city to creeping anarchy, there is open talk among the native Swedes still remaining in Malmö of forming vigilante groups armed with baseball bats out of concern for their children’s safety. […]
What happened to the famous Swedish nanny state, you say? Don’t Swedes pay the highest tax rates in the world? Yes, they do. But tens of billions of kroner, some say several hundred billions, are being spent every year on propping up rapidly growing communities ofMuslim immigrants.

Multiculturalism is code for White ethnic cleansing.
Sweden has become the entire world’s welfare office, because the political elites have decided that massive Muslim immigration is “good for the economy.”
Soon Sweden’s “army” may comprise no more than 5,000 men, five thousand troops to defend a nation more than three times the area of England. Moreover, it may take up to a year to assemble all of them, provided they are not on peacekeeping missions abroad. That Sweden might soon need a little peacekeeping at home seems to escape the establishment. In 2006 the celebrated Swedish welfare state has become the world’s largest pyramid scheme, an Enron with a national flag.
Although Sweden is an extreme example, similar stories could be told about much of Western Europe. As Mark Steyn points out, the Jihad in the streets of France looked like the early skirmishes of an impending Eurabian civil war, brought on by massive Muslim immigration and multicultural stupidity.
Law and order is slowly breaking down in major and even minor cities across the European continent, and the streets are ruled by aggressive gangs of Muslim youngsters. At the same time, Europeans are paying some of the highest taxes in the world. We should remind our authorities that the most important task of the state – some would even claim it should be the only task of the state – is to uphold the rule of law in exchange for taxation. Since it is becoming pretty obvious that this is no longer the case in Eurabia, we should question whether these taxes are still legitimate, or whether they are simply disguised Jizya paid in the form of welfare to Muslims and our new Eurocrat aristocracy. Although not exactly the Boston Tea Party, perhaps the time has now come for a pan-European tax rebellion: We will no longer pay taxes until our authorities restore law and order and close the borders to Muslim immigration.
This is URGENT. When enough people feel that the system is no longer working and that the social contract has been breached, the entire fabric of democratic society could unravel. What happens when the welfare state system breaks down, and there is no longer enough money to “grease” the increasing tensions between immigrants and nativeEuropeans?
Foreign invader says he has “wasted” 10 years in SWEDEN and loves African and Somali, yet if deported … threatens to kill Swedish people who allowed him into their country.
And what happens when people discover that their own leaders, through the EU networks and the Euro-Arab Dialogue described by Bat Ye’or in her book “Eurabia,” have been encouraging all these Muslims to settle here in the first place? There will be massive unemployment, and tens of millions of people will feel angry, scared and humiliated, betrayed by the system, by society and by their own democratic leaders. […]

Lars Holger Holm is a Swedish author and violinist. He has written on a variety of subjects, such as the European musical tradition, for publications like Svenska Dagbladet, Expressen and contemporary magazine Salt, and spent several years as a host on the classical music radio station Stockholm Classic FM. A number of his books are available through Arktos, including “The Owls of Afrasiab,” “Homo Maximus,” and “Hiding in Broad Daylight.”
From a California school teacher – – -“As you listen to the news about the student protests over illegal immigration, there are some things that you should be aware of:
I am in charge of the English-as-a-second-language department at a large southern California high school which is designated a Title 1 school, meaning that its students average lower socioeconomic and income levels.
Most of the schools you are hearing about, South Gate High, Bell Gardens , Huntington Park , etc., where these students are protesting, are also Title 1 schools.
Title 1 schools are on the free breakfast and free lunch program. When I say free breakfast, I’m not talking a glass of milk and roll — but a full breakfast and cereal bar with fruits and juices that would make a Marriott (hotel) proud. The waste of this food is monumental, with trays and trays of it being dumped in the trash uneaten. (OUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK)
I estimate that well over 50% of these students are obese or at least moderately overweight. About 75% or more DO have cell phones. The school also provides [free] day care centers for the unwed teenage pregnant girls (some as young as 13 yrs.) so they can attend class without the inconvenience of having to arrange for babysitters or having family watch their kids. (OUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK)
I was ordered to spend $700,000 on my department or risk losing funding for the upcoming year even though there was little need for anything; my budget was already substantial. I ended up buying new computers for the computer learning center, half of which, one month later, have been carved with graffiti by the appreciative students who obviously feel humbled and grateful to have a free education in America .. (OUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK)
I have had to intervene several times for young and substitute teachers whose classes consist of many illegal immigrant students here in the country less then 3 months who raised so much hell with the female teachers, calling them “Putas” whores and throwing things that the teachers were in tears.
Free medical, free education, free food, day care etc., etc., etc. Is it any wonder they feel entitled to not only be in this country but to demand rights, privileges and entitlements?
To those who want to point out how much these illegal immigrants contribute to our society because they LIKE their gardener and housekeeper and they like to pay less for tomatoes: spend some time in the real world of illegal immigration and see the TRUE costs.
Higher insurance, medical facilities closing, higher medical costs, more crime, lower standards of education in our schools, overcrowding, new diseases etc., etc, etc. For me, I’ll pay more for tomatoes.
We need to wake up. The guest worker program will be a disaster because we won’t have the guts to enforce it. Does anyone in their right mind really think they will voluntarily leave and return?
There are many hardworking Hispanic/American citizens that contribute to our country and many that I consider my true friends. We should encourage and accept those Hispanics who have done it the right and legal way.
It does, however, have everything to do with culture: A third-world culture that does not value education, that accepts children getting pregnant and dropping out of school by 15 (yrs.) and that refuses to assimilate, and an American culture that has become so weak and worried about “politically correct” that we don’t have the will to do anything about it. If this makes your blood boil, as it did mine………forward this to everyone you know.
Isn’t that what the whole immigration issue is about? Business doesn’t want to pay a decent wage. Consumers don’t want expensive produce. Government will tell you Americans don’t want the jobs.
But the bottom line is cheap labor. The phrase “cheap labor” is a myth, a farce, and a lie. There is no such thing as “cheap labor.”
Take, for example, an illegal alien with a wife and five children. He takes a job for $5.00 or 6.00/hour. At that wage, with six dependents, he pays no income tax, yet at the end of the year, if he files an Income Tax Return! ………he gets an “earned income credit” of up to $3,200 free.
*He qualifies for Section 8 housing and subsidized rent.
*He qualifies for food stamps.
*He qualifies for free (no deductible, no co-pay) health care.
*His children get free breakfasts and lunches at school.
*He requires bilingual teachers and books
*He qualifies for relief from high energy bills.
*If they are or become, aged, blind or disabled, they qualify for SSI (Social Security Income). Once qualified for SSI they can qualify for Medicare. All of this is at (our) taxpayer’s expense.
*He doesn’t worry about car insurance, life insurance, or homeowners insurance.
*Taxpayers provide Spanish languagesigns, bulletins and printed material.
*He and his family receive the equivalent of $20.00 to $30.00/hour in benefits.

[Note: Ms. Taub identifies four immigration-related ways to improve Canada’s Health Care system: parts 1,3 and 4 deal directly with immigration; part 2 deals with “doctor shopping” and presumably involves both long-term Canadians as well as legal or illegal immigrants.]
Waiting times, shortage of doctors—–health care is a pressing concern to all Canadians. There are countless articles on how to reform health care: inject more money, repeal the Canada Health Act, privatize, combine private public etc. The suggestions and criticism are endless…………………………………………………………….
But the obvious, most fundamental problems, which would be simple to address and not require changes in the law or a huge injection of tax dollars to implement, are overlooked.
[Part 1] Has any politician ever thought to investigate whether everyone on the waiting lists, emergency departments, doctors’ offices is really eligible for health care??
Having a health card means little because there are hundreds of thousands of fraudulent [health] cards; the government of Ontario distributed 500,000 (!) too many under the Conservatives. In Ontario, the majority of health cards have no pictures, such as mine until several weeks ago. Thousands have obtained health cards fraudulently in Ontario and I am sure across Canada.
Americans living near the border can rent or buy health cards. Some permanent residents and citizens rent or lend their cards to friends or family who visit them from abroad. I am an immigration lawyer, and some of my clients have confirmed that this practice is rampant. (Editor’s Note: Former B.C. MLA David Schreck has recently pointed out B.C. irregularities similar to those in Ontario.)
It is not a monumental task to enforce the existing legislation to avoid fraud. Ensure that ONLY Canadian citizens, permanent residents and legitimate foreign workers have access to our health care system.
In addition to presenting a health card, each user should provide proof of being a citizen or permanent resident of Canada. This is not onerous because since December 31, 2004 all permanent residents are required to have PR cards. A passport, citizenship card or birth certificate (with photo I.D.) easily confirms citizenship. No new laws would be required for this confirmation, merely enforcing existing laws that limit health care to citizens and permanent residents. Refugee claimants are well documented and do not have health cards. Their health care costs are covered directly by the federal government, so they are not part of this problem. Rather than investigating individual cases that may come to the attention of authorities after the fact, it would be far more efficient and cost effective to prevent such fraud in the first place.
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Pouring millions of dollars into the existing health care system without addressing this massive costly abuse is like installing a high efficiency furnace in one’s home but leaving the windows wide open in winter.
[Part 2] There is a second area of abuse that is widespread and acknowledged: the overuse of the medical system by users who engage in doctor shopping. In order to get narcotics such as codeine, abusers will visit several different doctors to get multiple prescriptions for their personal addiction or for trafficking. [Also] patients who visit several different doctors for an ailment may end up with several different prescriptions, which, in combination may be deleterious to their health or even fatal. Then of course there are those who go from doctor to doctor until they get a diagnosis and treatment that they want, even though it is not necessary.
Digitizing medical records of each patient would make the system more efficient by permitting a doctor’s immediate access, with a password, to a patient’s medical history. This would curb abuse, multiple prescriptions and errors in over prescribing medication to patients, essentially abolishing doctor shopping. It would also improve waiting times and facilitate diagnosis and treatment or simply help narrow down or eliminate a diagnosis on the exhaustive list of differentials. Imagine having a patient’s previous CT or MRI on-hand when a potential stroke patient comes into the ER. Or imagine an unconscious patient being brought to ER and discovering immediately that they have diabetes and a history of hypoglycaemic episodes. It will also help bridge the gap in communication between health care facilities. Hospitals and clinics are over-crowded with patients’ paper records containing their health care information, which could be scattered anywhere from Ottawa to Toronto to Thunder Bay! Imagine the money saved on couriers, phone calls, faxes to obtain patient information, not to mention PAPER!
Critics of this on-line system cite the invasion of privacy, yet on-line banking that puts clients’ entire financial profiles on-line doesn’t seem to elicit the same fear-mongering.
[Part 3] The shortage of doctors can be partially addressed with the reduction of the number of foreign graduate residency placements in Canadian teaching hospitals. A significant portion of residents in most Canadian teaching hospitals are foreign medical graduates, particularly from Middle East countries, excluding Israel. The medical schools charge about $40,000 to $50,000.00 a year for each spot, enough to cover the training expenses. There are now approximately six hundred Saudi Arabian doctors getting their residency training in [our] Canadian system, along with some 300 from other countries, mostly from the Middle East. That represents about 10 per cent of all residency spots. Significantly, the Canadian Medical Association says the Canadian medical system needs about the same number of new Canadian residency spots as what the foreign doctors are buying, that. Plus, the CMA says, the medical schools need more funding, to produce the doctors to take that training.
Only the medical schools benefit from these tuitions. A significant proportion, if not the majority of residents in surgery, orthopaedics, emergency and other specialities, are Saudi, Libyan, Kuwaiti and other foreign graduate doctors who return to their countries upon completion of their 5 year resident programmes at major urban Canadian hospitals. Canada doesnot benefit in any way from these placements; on the contrary this may be a significant contributing factor to the shortage of doctors. As a result, our medical graduates compete for fewer residence placements.
The doctors in the hospital who train these foreign doctors do not get any compensation. Our Canadian residents also have to compete for training and attention from the attendees with these foreign medical graduates. The entire country is lucky to get a very limited number of new orthopaedic surgeons a year, because the majority are foreign graduates who return to the Middle East. In many hospitals, the surgical residents are often referred to as the “Saudi or Libyan team”
The solution is simple: that 10% (currently occupied by non-Canadians) should be reserved for Canadian doctors or immigrant doctors who will remain in Canada. If and only if there are surplus residence placements available afterwards, then and only then should the medical schools accept foreign medical graduates.
[Part 4] Immigrant foreign trained doctors: Unfortunately, multiculturalism interferes with granting Canadian medical licences to foreign-trained doctors in an efficient manner. It is not politically correct to state that not all foreign-trained medical doctors are equally proficient. We all know that medical standards around the world are not the same. Yet Canada insists on treating all foreign trained doctors the same. For example, it is well known that Western European, Israeli, Cuban and Japanese medical standards and training are far superior to those in third-world countries. The provincial governments should recognize the obvious and vary the length of residency training accordingly. This would allow Western-trained foreign doctors to enter medical practice sooner.
[Editor’s Note: While all this fraudulenthealth care acquisition, costing tens of million$ of our tax dollars (not to mention organized crime activities) is happening right “under our noses”, O.P.P. Commissioner Fantino and his minions think it’s more important to focus on ‘soft targets‘ such as Ontario drivers who fail to buckle their seatbelts as in the previous article [or HERE], where less than 1% of drivers stopped for inspection were not complying with this revenue-gathering law.]
