Goebbels and the Jews

Despite the enormous power of the Propaganda Ministry over German cultural life, Goebbels’ status began to decline once the Nazi regime was firmly established in power.[35] This was because the real business of the Nazi regime was preparation for war, and although propaganda was a part of this, it was not the primary objective. .By the mid-1930s, Hitler’s most powerful subordinates were Hermann Göring, as head of the Four Year Plan for crash rearmament, and Heinrich Himmler, head of the SS and police apparatus.^ By the mid-1930s, Hitler’s most powerful subordinates were Hermann Göring , as head of the Four Year Plan for crash rearmament, and Heinrich Himmler , head of the SS and police apparatus.
  • Boston University School of Theology Archives 6 January 2010 8:30 UTC sthweb.bu.edu [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

^ With Hitler preoccupied with the war, Himmler focusing on the "final solution to the Jewish question" in eastern Europe, and with Hermann Göring ’s position declining with the failure of the German Air Force ( Luftwaffe ), Goebbels sensed a power vacuum in domestic policy and moved to fill it.
  • Boston University School of Theology Archives 6 January 2010 8:30 UTC sthweb.bu.edu [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

^ However, the inability of Himmler to persuade Hitler to cease his support of Bormann, the defection of SS generals such as ObergruppenfĂŒhrer Ernst Kaltenbrunner , the Chief of the Reichssicherheitshauptamt and his powerful subordinate GruppenfĂŒhrer Heinrich MĂŒller , the head of the Gestapo , to Bormann, soon persuaded Goebbels to align himself with the Secretary to the FĂŒhrer at the end of 1944, thus accepting his subordinate position.

From May onwards, he orchestrated a "hate campaign" against Poland, fabricating stories about atrocities against ethnic Germans in Danzig and other cities. Even so, he was unable to persuade the majority of Germans to welcome the prospect of war.[53]
Once war began in September 1939, Goebbels began a steady process of extending his influence over domestic policy. After 1940, Hitler made few public appearances, and even his broadcasts became less frequent, so Goebbels increasingly became the face and the voice of the Nazi regime for the German people.[54] With Hitler preoccupied with the war, Himmler focusing on the "final solution to the Jewish question" in eastern Europe, and with Hermann Göring’s position declining with the failure of the German Air Force (Luftwaffe), Goebbels sensed a power vacuum in domestic policy and moved to fill it. Since civilian morale was his responsibility, he increasingly concerned himself with matters such as wages, rationing and housing, which affected morale and therefore productivity. He came to see the lethargic and demoralized Göring, still Germany’s economic supremo as head of the Four Year Plan Ministry, as his main enemy. To undermine Göring, he forged an alliance with Himmler, although the SS chief remained wary of him. .A more useful ally was Albert Speer, a Hitler favorite who was appointed Armaments Minister in February 1942. Goebbels and Speer worked through 1942 to persuade Hitler to dismiss Göring and allow the domestic economy to be run by a revived Cabinet headed by themselves.^ People who actually know a lot about a few things are much more useful than some moron who knows a little about many things.

However, in February 1943, the crushing German defeat at the Battle of Stalingrad produced a crisis in the regime. Goebbels was forced to ally himself with Göring to thwart a bid for power by Bormann, head of the Nazi Party Chancellery and Secretary to the FĂŒhrer. Bormann exploited the disaster at Stalingrad, and his daily access to Hitler, to persuade him to create a three-man junta representing the State, the Army, and the Party, represented respectively by Hans Lammers, head of the Reich Chancellery, Field Marshal Wilhelm Keitel, chief of the OKW (armed forces high command), and Bormann, who controlled the Party and access to the FĂŒhrer. This Committee of Three would exercise dictatorial powers over the home front. Goebbels, Speer, Göring and Himmler all saw this proposal as a power grab by Bormann and a threat to their power, and combined to block it.
However, their alliance was shaky at best. .This was mainly due to the fact that during this period Himmler was still cooperating with Bormann to gain more power at the expense of Göring and most of the traditional Reich administration; Göring's loss of power had resulted in an overindulgence in the trappings of power and his strained relations with Goebbels made it difficult for a unified coalition to be formed, despite the attempts of Speer and Göring's Luftwaffe deputy Field Marshal Erhard Milch, to reconcile the two Party comrades.^ But beyond that, because most of these folks are puppets is someting far more sinister and that is the fact that , which can be supported through research, that this has been going on historically forever as one Republic or power base if you will, is substituted for another.

Goebbels instead tried to persuade Hitler to appoint Göring as head of the government. .His proposal had a certain logic, as Göring â€“ despite the failures of the Luftwaffe and his own corruption â€“ was still very popular among the German people, whose morale was waning since Hitler barely appeared in public since the defeat at Stalingrad.^ Be very wary of this, as these people function through problem, reaction – solution logic, and any problem reacted to they will have a solution planned for, they are not one dimensional in their control strategies.

However, this proposal was increasingly unworkable given Göring’s increasing incapacity and, more importantly, Hitler’s increasing contempt for him due to his blaming of Göring for Germany's defeats. This was a measure by Hitler designed to deflect criticism from himself.
.The result was that nothing was done â€“ the Committee of Three declined into irrelevance due to the loss of power by Keitel and Lammers and the ascension of Bormann and the situation continued to drift, with administrative chaos increasingly undermining the war effort.^ War vies with magic in its efforts to get something for nothing...

On 18 February, he delivered a passionate "Total War Speech" at the Sports Palace in Berlin. .Goebbels demanded from his audience a commitment to "total war," the complete mobilization of the German economy and German society for the war effort.^ It is in war that the State really comes into its own: swelling in power, in number, in pride, in absolute dominion over the economy and the society.

To motivate the German people to continue the struggle, he cited three theses as the basis of this argument:
.
  1. If the German Armed Forces (Wehrmacht) were not in a position to break the danger from the Eastern front, then Nazi Germany would fall to Bolshevism, and all of Europe would fall shortly afterward;
  2. The German Armed Forces, the German people, and the Axis Powers alone had the strength to save Europe from this threat;
  3. Danger was a motivating force.^ In all history there is no war which was not hatched by the governments, the governments alone, independent of the interests of the people, to whom war is always pernicious even when successful.

    Germany had to act quickly and decisively, or it would be too late.
Goebbels concluded that "Two thousand years of Western history are in danger," and he blamed Germany's failures on the Jews.
Goebbels hoped in this way to persuade Hitler to give him and his ally Speer control of domestic policy for a program of total commitment to arms production and full labor conscription, including women. But Hitler, supported by Göring, resisted these demands, which he feared would weaken civilian morale and lead to a repetition of the debacle of 1918, when the German army had been undermined (in Hitler's view) by a collapse of the home front. .Nor was Hitler willing to allow Goebbels or anyone else to usurp his own power as the ultimate source of all decisions.^ Although tyranny...may successfully rule over foreign peoples, it can stay in power only if it destroys first of all the national institutions of its own people.

Goebbels and the Holocaust

Heinrich Himmler, one of the architects of the Holocaust, preferred that the matter not be discussed in public. .Despite this, in an editorial in his newspaper Das Reich in November 1941 Goebbels quoted Hitler’s 1939 "prophecy" that the Jews would be the loser in the coming world war.^ About the quote : This quote comes from "Homage to Catalonia," Orwell's 1936 eyewitness account of the Spanish Civil War.

It now perishes according to its own precept of ‘an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth’!"[58]
In 1939, in a speech to the Reichstag, Hitler had said:
.If international finance Jewry in and outside Europe should succeed in thrusting the nations once again into a world war, then the result will not be the Bolshevisation of the earth and with it the victory of Jewry, but the destruction of the Jewish race in Europe.^ War can really cause no economic boom, at least not directly, since an increase in wealth never does result from destruction of goods.

The decision in principle to deport the German and Austrian Jews to unspecified destinations "in the east" was made in September. Goebbels immediately pressed for the Berlin Jews to be deported first. He traveled to Hitler’s headquarters on the eastern front, meeting both Hitler and Reinhard Heydrich to lobby for his demands. He got the assurances he wanted: "The FĂŒhrer is of the opinion," he wrote, "that the Jews eventually have to be removed from the whole of Germany. The first cities to be made Jew-free are Berlin, Vienna and Prague. Berlin is first in the queue, and I have the hope that we’ll succeed in the course of this year."[61]
Deportations of Berlin Jews to the ƁódĆș ghetto began in October, but transport and other difficulties made the process much slower than Goebbels desired. His November article in Das Reich was part of his campaign to have the pace of deportation accelerated.
In December, he was present when Hitler addressed a meeting of Gauleiters and other senior Nazis, discussing among other things the "Jewish question." He wrote in his diary afterward:
With regard to the Jewish Question, the FĂŒhrer is determined to make a clean sweep of it. .He prophesied that, if they brought about another world war, they would experience their annihilation.^ They can carp about us to one another as easily as they can to us.

There they could be worked into extinction in accordance with the plan agreed on at the Wannsee Conference convened by Heydrich in January.

.Goebbels saw Himmler as a potential ally against Bormann and in 1944 is supposed to have voiced the opinion that if the ReichsfĂŒhrer SS was granted control over the Wehrmacht and he, Goebbels, granted control over the domestic politics, the war would soon be ended in a victorious manner.^ (Goebbels and his wife killed their six children before killing themselves a week before the surrender that ended of the Second World War.

.However, the inability of Himmler to persuade Hitler to cease his support of Bormann, the defection of SS generals such as ObergruppenfĂŒhrer Ernst Kaltenbrunner, the Chief of the Reichssicherheitshauptamt and his powerful subordinate GruppenfĂŒhrer Heinrich MĂŒller, the head of the Gestapo, to Bormann, soon persuaded Goebbels to align himself with the Secretary to the FĂŒhrer at the end of 1944, thus accepting his subordinate position.^ Posteriormente, como es sabido, se suicidaron Adolf Hitler, Heinrich Himmler (a cargo de la consolidaciĂłn de las Schutzsaffel, conocidas como SS, la GESTAPO y la red de campos de concentraciĂłn) y Joseph Goebbels, quien junto con su esposa envenenĂł a sus hijos para posteriormente quitarse su propia vida.

When elements of the army leadership tried to assassinate Hitler in the July 20 plot shortly thereafter, it was this trio that rallied the resistance to the plotters. It was Goebbels, besieged in his Berlin apartment with Speer and secretary Wilfred von Oven beside him but with his phone lines intact, who brought Otto Ernst Remer, the wavering commander of the Berlin garrison, to the phone to speak to Hitler in East Prussia, thus demonstrating that the FĂŒhrer was alive and that the garrison should oppose the attempted coup.[73]
Goebbels promised Hitler that he could raise a million new soldiers by means of a reorganisation of the Army, transferring personnel from the Navy and Luftwaffe, and purging the bloated Reich Ministries which satraps like Göring had hitherto protected. As it turned out, the inertia of the state bureaucracy was too great even for the energetic Goebbels to overcome. Bormann and his puppet Lammers, keen to retain their control over the Party and State administrations respectively, placed endless obstacles in Goebbels’s way.[74] .Another problem was that although Speer and Goebbels were allies, their agendas in fact conflicted: Speer wanted absolute priority in the allocation of labor to be given to arms production, while Goebbels sought to press every able-bodied male into the army.^ I went into the Army believing that if you want peace you must prepare for war.

Speer, allied with Fritz Sauckel, the General Plenipotentiary for the Employment of Labor from 1942, generally won these battles.[75]
.By July 1944, it was in any case too late for Goebbels and Speer’s internal coup to make any real difference to the outcome of the war.^ Today the real test of America's power and wisdom is not our capacity to make war but our capacity to prevent it.

^ Today the real test of power is not capacity to make war but capacity to prevent it.
  • Quotes 6 January 2010 8:30 UTC antiwar.com [Source type: Original source]

The combined economic and military power of the western Allies and the Soviet Union, now fully mobilized, was simply too great for Germany to overcome. A crucial economic indicator, the ratio of steel output, was running at 4.5:1 against Germany. The final blow was the loss of the Romanian oil fields as the Soviet Army advanced through the Balkans in September. This, combined with the U.S. air campaign against Germany’s synthetic oil production, finally broke the back of the German economy and thus its capacity for further resistance.[76] By this time, the best Goebbels could do to reassure the German people that victory was still possible was to make vague promises that "miracle weapons" such as the Me 262 jet airplane, the Type XXI U-boat, and the V-2 rocket could somehow retrieve the military situation.

Defeat and death

In the last months of the war, Goebbels’s speeches and articles took on an increasingly apocalyptic tone:
.
"Rarely in history has a brave people struggling for its life faced such terrible tests as the German people have in this war," he wrote towards the end.^ In all history there is no war which was not hatched by the governments, the governments alone, independent of the interests of the people, to whom war is always pernicious even when successful.

.When other Nazi leaders urged Hitler to leave Berlin and establish a new center of resistance in the National Redoubt in Bavaria, Goebbels opposed this, arguing for a last stand in the ruins of the Reich capital.^ Last week, Sterling Burnett – a senior fellow at the Exxon-backed National Center for Policy Analysis – compared Al Gore to Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels.

By this time, Goebbels had gained the position he had wanted so long â€“ at the side of Hitler, albeit only because of his subservience to Bormann, who was the FĂŒhrer's de facto deputy. Göring was utterly discredited, though Hitler refused to dismiss him until 25 April. Himmler, whose appointment as commander of Army Group Vistula had led to disaster on the Oder, was also in disgrace, and Hitler rightly suspected that he was secretly trying to negotiate with the western Allies. Only Goebbels and Bormann remained totally loyal to Hitler.[80] .Goebbels knew how to play on Hitler's fantasies, encouraging him to see in the death of United States President Franklin D.

[81] On 22 April, largely as a result of Goebbels' influence, Hitler announced that he would not leave Berlin, but would stay and fight, and if necessary die, in defence of the capital.[82]
On 23 April, Goebbels made the following proclamation to the people of Berlin:
I call on you to fight for your city. .Fight with everything you have got, for the sake of your wives and your children, your mothers and your parents.^ If half of what Al Gore is saying is true, would you want your children to live in this world?

The battle for Berlin must become the signal for the whole nation to rise up in battle ..."[83]
Unlike many other leading Nazis at this juncture, Goebbels proved to have strong convictions, moving himself and his family into the FĂŒhrerbunker under the Reich Chancellery building in central Berlin. .He told Vice-Admiral Hans-Erich Voss that he would not entertain the idea of either surrender or escape: "I was the Reich Minister of Propaganda and led the fiercest activity against the Soviet Union, for which they would never pardon me," Voss quoted him as saying.^ That’s not to say he’s a bad guy, he’s what they made him become.

"He couldn't escape also because he was Berlin's Defence Commissioner and he considered it would be disgraceful for him to abandon his post," Voss added.[84]
On 30 April, with the Soviets advancing to within a few hundred meters of the bunker, Hitler dictated his last will and testament. Goebbels was one of four witnesses. Not long after completing it, Hitler shot himself. Of Hitler's death, Goebbels commented: "The heart of Germany has ceased to beat. The FĂŒhrer is dead."
In his last will and testament, Hitler named no successor as FĂŒhrer or leader of the Nazi Party. Instead, Hitler appointed Goebbels Reich Chancellor; Grand Admiral Karl Dönitz, who was at Flensburg near the Danish border, Reich President; and Martin Bormann, Hitler's long-time chief of staff, Party Minister. Goebbels knew that this was an empty title. .Even if he was willing and able to escape Berlin and reach the north, it was unlikely that Dönitz, whose only concern was to negotiate a settlement with the western Allies that would save Germany from Soviet occupation, would want such a notorious figure as Goebbels heading his government.^ OK, true, Nazi Germany was much worse than Goebbels’s films would ever show.

I shall follow his example'."[85]
On 1 May, within hours of Hitler's suicide on 30 April, Goebbels completed his sole official act as Chancellor of Germany (Reichskanzler). He dictated a letter and ordered German General Hans Krebs, under a white flag, to meet with General Vasily Chuikov and to deliver his letter. Chuikov, as commander of the Soviet 8th Guards Army, commanded the Soviet forces in central Berlin. .Goebbels' letter informed Chuikov of Hitler's death and requested a ceasefire, hinting that the establishment of a National Socialist government hostile to Western plutocracy would be beneficial to the Soviet Union, as the betrayal of Himmler and Göring indicated that otherwise anti-Soviet National Socialist elements might align themselves with the West.^ A man who kills at his government's request is a national hero.

When this was rejected, Goebbels decided that further efforts were futile.[86] Shortly afterward he dictated a postscript to Hitler's testament:

For the first time in my life, I must categorically refuse to obey a command of the FĂŒhrer.

[88] According to Kunz's testimony, he gave the children morphine injections but it was Magda Goebbels and Stumpfegger, Hitler's personal doctor, who then administered the cyanide.[89] .Shortly afterward, Goebbels and his wife went up to the garden of the Chancellery, where they killed themselves.^ (Goebbels and his wife killed their six children before killing themselves a week before the surrender that ended of the Second World War.

The details of their suicides are uncertain. After the war, Rear-Admiral Michael Musmanno, a U.S. naval officer and judge, published an account apparently based on eye-witness testimony: "At about 8:15 pm, Goebbels arose from the table, put on his hat, coat and gloves and, taking his wife's arm, went upstairs to the garden." They were followed by Goebbels's adjutant, SS-HauptsturmfĂŒhrer GĂŒnther SchwĂ€germann. "While SchwĂ€germann was preparing the petrol, he heard a shot. Goebbels had shot himself and his wife took poison. SchwĂ€germann ordered one of the soldiers to shoot Goebbels again because he was unable to do it himself."[90] .One SS officer later said they each took cyanide and were shot by an SS trooper.^ An old man sauntered up and asked what they were doing and the kids started to run, but the old man said your doing it wrong and one of the kids said “how would you do it”?

An early report said they were machine-gunned to death at their own request. According to another account, Goebbels shot his wife and then himself. This idea is presented in the movie Downfall.
The bodies of Goebbels and his wife were then burned in a shell crater, but owing to the lack of petrol the burning was only partly effective, and their bodies were easily identifiable. .A few days later, Voss was brought back to the bunker by the Soviets to identify the partly burned bodies of Joseph and Magda Goebbels and the bodies of their children.^ Sterling Burnett, senior fellow at the Exxon-backed National Center for Policy Analysis, compared Al Gore to Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels.

To the end he was what he had always been: the propagandist for himself. Whatever he thought or did was always based on this one agonizing wish for self-exaltation, and this same object was served by the murder of his children ... They were the last victims of an egomania extending beyond the grave. However, this deed, too, failed to make him the figure of tragic destiny he had hoped to become; it merely gave his end a touch of repulsive irony."[92]

Osteomyelitis, an infection within the bone marrow, can cause the destruction of one or more of the growing points in the long bones of the leg, a condition known as septic osteoblastic dysgenesis.
