These girls love to get carried away by Hitler's passion. Nazi frenzy. This picture helps understand why Germans so blindly adored Hitler. Schwarzach/St. Veith during Hitler's Austrian election campaign.

It is a wonder what a leader with an obsession and fiery oratory can do to the masses.

Nazi culture: The play "Night of the Amazons" in progress at Nymphenburg Castle park, Munich. 1939.


This original musical drama is based on the Bread Riots of the French Revolution, when women marched from Paris to Versailles, stormed the palace, and killed the Swiss Guards. The Night of the Amazons tells of the climactic night in the lives of five of the women who occupied the palace overnight before bringing Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette to Paris to stand trial.


The Night of the Amazons
by Herbert Rosendorfer, Translated by Mike Mitchell

Original title: Die Nacht der Amazonen
Original language: German

Published in early 1990s

The Night of the Amazons is the blackest of black satires on Nazi Germany. It charts the rise of Christian Weber, one-time groom and pub bouncer, who exploits his status as one of the ‘Grand Old Soldiers’ of the ‘Movement’ (i.e. the Nazi Party), and certain compromising facts he knows about Hitler, to a position of power and influence and an immense fortune. Weber’s breathtakingly complete lack of any moral sense gives him total self-assurance and he proceeds to gratify his appetites in episodes of self-indulgence which are both chilling and grotesquely comic.

The absolute control the Nazis exerted gave figures like Weber the means to act out their own private fantasies at public expense and, often, in public, presenting them as concerns of ‘national importance’. In Weber’s career this culminates in the ‘Nights of the Amazons’, grotesque Wagnerian pageants financed by the City of Munich, in which well-developed members of the Bund Deutsche Madeln (the Nazi girls’ squad) parade naked, apart from cardboard helmets and the odd sash, on horseback before an audience of tens of thousands.

Snippets From History

German Soldiers in Russia: Part 1

Hubert Menzel was a major in the General Operations Department of the OKH (the Oberkommando des Heers, the German Army headquarters), and for him the idea of invading the Soviet Union in 1941 had the smack of cold, clear logic to it: 'We knew that in two years' time, that is by the end of 1942, beginning of 1943, the English would be ready, the Americans would be ready, the Russians would be ready too, and then we would have to deal with all three of them at the same time.... We had to try to remove the greatest threat from the East.... At the time it seemed possible.'

Battle for Berlin, 1945

'We started to fire at the masses,' says one former German machine gunner. 'They weren't human beings for us. It was a wall of attacking beasts who were trying to kill us. You yourself were no longer human.'


Berlin after it fell to the Russians, 1945

"Vladlen Anchishkin, a Soviet battery commander on the 1st Ukrainian Front, sums up the horror of the whole event, when he tells how he took personal revenge on German soldiers: 'I can admit it now, I was in such a state, I was in such a frenzy. I said, 'Bring them here for an interrogation' and I had a knife, and I cut him. I cut a lot of them. I thought, 'You wanted to kill me, now it's your turn.'

Dramatic Pictures: Battle For Stalingrad
"...Effective command no longer possible... further defense senseless. Collapse inevitable. Army requests immediate permission to surrender in order to save lives of remaining troops."
General Paulus' radio message to Hitler on January 24, 1943

"...Capitulation is impossible. The 6th Army will do its historic duty at Stalingrad until the last man, the last bullet..."

Points To Ponder....

The fall of France was shocking. It reduced France to virtually a non-player in the Second World War. The efforts of Charles de Gualle were more symbolic than material. But the martial instincts of the French must never be doubted. Under Napoleon they were a formidable military power. The French definitely have more iron in their blood then say, the Italians [I do not mean it in a derogatory sense. War never makes sense]


Bias Of Western Historians

Soviet resistance made possible a successful Allied invasion of France, and ensured the final Allied victory over Germany.

It can hardly be called mere 'resistance'! If it hadn't been for the Russians, Hitler would have made mincemeat of British forces in Africa and landed on British shores in no time. Hitler attacked Russia first because it had more land and resources than Britain. It is as simple as that.
