REF:


GERMANY AFTER THE WAR



THE RESPONSIBLE STATESMAN OF THE ALLIED NATIONS DECLARE: -
1941
It is not our intention to bring about the economic ruin of Germany or any other country. I say this
not out of any fondness for Germany, but because a starving and bankrupt Germany in the middle
of Europe would poison us who are its neighbours. That is not sentimentality, but sound common sense.
EDEN 29.7.41
1942
It would be foolish to identify the Hitler 'clique' with the German people or with the German state.
History shows that 'Hitlers' come and go, the German state and the German people remain.
STALIN 23.11.42
1943
We make no war against nations as such. We make war against tyranny.
CHURCHILL 21.9.43
The Allied Nations do not intend to enslave the German people. It is our
wish to give the German people the opportunity for normal and peaceful
development as a useful and respected member of the European family of
nations.
ROOSEVELT CHRISTMAS 1943
HOWEVER GOEBBELS CONTINUES TO LIE:-
1) England wants to deliver Europe to Stalin's knife.
2) Slaughter Df the Germans - new brutal English plan of shame.
3) Germany to become a slave state.
4) Devil's plan against our children.
5) A brutal Churchill plan.
6) They want spiritual and physical destruction of the German people.
AND HE WILL CONTINUE TO LIE LIKE THIS UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE.

Ref: Mistreatment of prisoners


Troops are advised that information is being received in ever increasing
volume concerning the mistreatment and murder of German POW's by Allied
Forces. However incomprehensible and even unbelievable occurrences of
this nature may seem to German military thinking, these documentarily
proven crimes can be explained however by the hate and the callous
brutality of the Jewish incited underworld in angle-Saxon cities.
THIS DOCUMENT WAS POSTED IN GERMAN STAFF QUARTERS.
PERHAPS THESE ALSO BELIEVED IT. TODAY THEY ARE PRISONERS OF WAR.
