The relentless and merciless bombing raid continued over the course of the 2 nights and 2 days (13 – 15 February, 1945). The British bombed by night while the Americans dropped bombs each day. Dresden, a refugee city with a swollen urban population (fleeing the raping, pillaging Red Army), was not the only victim of the Allied terror bombing campaign but it was the most deadly, more deadly than the bombing of Hamburg, or even the 2 atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki combined. As the Allies often shamelessly do, the “official” estimates of deaths in the fire bombing of Dresden are grossly understated, absurdly understated. The true figure can never be known, but in a city (a civilian population center) of nearly one million souls that Ash Wednesday in 1945, can you really believe that only 25,000 lost their lives?! And, even 25,000 constitutes a horrific mass murder, does it not?
We must never forget Allied war crimes and Allied lies. And, on this blog, we will never forget!
Dresden, the willful, purposeful atrocity, was a holocaust. (Sadly, and this ought to be deeply offensive to any readers with an ounce, even a gram or grain of humanity: German photos of stacked corpses of dead German civilians horribly burned in the Dresden firestorm were later used in postwar propaganda as “photographs of holocaust victims”, purporting to show alleged Jewish victims of a German genocide of the Jews. One of these photos in particular can be seen in the indicated linked article below.)
These linked posts (see below) by others tell the story better than we could. We might say the Allies, driven mad with their fanatical hate, brought Hell to the Earth for the citizens and refugees of Dresden. When you read about the postwar trials at Nuremberg, be sure you read the indictments and the definitions of war crimes included with those indictments. Then ask yourself, were not the morally superior, holier than thou Allies themselves guilty of barbarous, heinous war crimes?! And, do not believe the lie that the prosecution of a “just war” legitimizes the use of immoral means. That is denial. That’s self-deception.
What of the long dead war criminals? Arthur “Bomber” Harris, head of bomber command for the British Royal Air Force, took up knitting (or was it cooking, or was it gardening?) after the war. And, each day when he sipped his afternoon tea, he told others and himself that he would do it all over again without any hesitation or regrets. Winston Churchill, recently lionized in a movie that ignores the inconvenient facts and serves to suppress the truth, was one of history’s greatest, most extreme war mongers.
What of the long dead victims, those that were burned to death at the time, and those who were both physically and psychologically maimed and scarred for life?
What of justice, both sides of the coin of justice?
A personal reflection: Call to mind the final scene of the 1968 movie, Planet of The Apes. Recall Charlton Heston’s final words in that film. That serves to convey the righteous anger many of us feel at such hidden outrages committed by the Allies.
See these links (from several sources) for in-depth history, the facts, about the Dresden firestorm. There are additional links with related topics as well. We encourage readers to look over this lengthy list and click on one or more linked essays.
A lengthy account of the bombing of the city:
Another piece for those unfamiliar with this historical event, and from which we include this quote:
The documentation of this war crime committed by the Allies, commissioned by the Hitler government in the aftermath of the Dresden holocaust, fell into Allied hands. These mountains of dead captured in the filmed footage were later edited and spliced into Allied propaganda films about “concentration camp atrocities” and were shown to the world at large as “evidence” of Jewish dead. – from the 4th from the last paragraph.

The second image in this next post is a photo (of stacked corpses horribly burned) that was used in postwar Allied propaganda to promote belief in the Jewish holocaust story.

An interesting point of view, from an Allied POW held by the Germans in the vicinity of Dresden at the time, is found in this link:

A rather in-depth, annotated analysis on the death toll at Dresden:
The woman who posted this next essay is currently a prisoner in jail in Germany. Although Monika Schaefer is a Canadian citizen, for her exercise of a limited freedom of speech in Canada, after travelling to Germany she was arrested by German authorities. If you break or otherwise violate German speech laws outside of Germany and then subsequently travel to Germany, you can be arrested by the German authorities – even if you are not a German national! Read this essay that speaks of Germans who mourn for their war dead and are now smeared as “neo Nazis”.
