Yes, it could be, and in fact, it is false. That is my personal conclusion (and I am not alone in that conclusion) after having studied the period (1930s and 1940s) rather extensively since the early 1990s.
Having arrived at my conclusion some years back, and with more recently published, thoroughly researched, revisionist works having bolstered my confidence in the accuracy (correctness) of my conclusion, I am forced to ask: What else have we been lied to about in the Western world during the past century or more? (Some months back, we posted an essay about many of the lies that Americans have largely accepted without questioning.)
This is all just food for thought, and an invitation to concerned and interested readers to educate themselves and retain a healthy skepticism towards official narratives.
The World War II official narrative is largely self-serving victors’ propaganda. And, this raises the issue of an ingrained anti-German bias in Western historiography. Of what value is “history” if it is not objective and if it buries important facts? If the history that is put into the text books is propaganda, then the so-called historians are liars (guilty of all 3 forms of a lie). Now, to be fair, many of these writers of history have not dared to question and dig deep to get at the truth as that means not having any publishers take their work to press. As well, such free thinkers daring to question official narratives do not get tenure at leading institutions of higher learning in the West. (Yes, we also have complaints with higher education today as it has become indoctrination. But, we have already posted on that years back.) But, if we are to excuse the propagators of lies for the reasons above, then we must conclude these practitioners of history are not interested in the truth and are also quite cowardly. Oh, you say in their defense that they were not aware of inconvenient truths about the period. Then, they are incompetent as historians by relying on flawed, truncated and biased source material. Or, are they just plain lazy?
The truth that no one is allowed to think in the West without risking being smeared as a “Nazi” or an “anti-Semite” is that Hitler made many very reasonable peace proposals both before and after the outbreak of war in Europe in September, 1939 – a war that was forced on to Germany. As well, powerful forces worked to destroy the German economy from the time that Hitler became Chancellor of Germany in late January,1933. Terrible boycotts of German exports were initiated throughout Europe and the US beginning in 1933. For a nation that needed exports to feed itself, these boycotts were economic warfare directed at the German people. The amazing economic recovery and prosperity that Germany attained within a few years of adopting the National Socialist economic model are all the more amazing given the orchestrated international boycotts against its exports.
Enough. You will either move on as you are not interested, or you might buy some banned books and expand your range of thinking. Believe me, you will value what you yourself uncover much more than anything I can give you here. As I said in a recent post: none of us is under any moral obligation to remain in the ranks of the uninformed, the ignorant, or the insane.
We present 3 images that cause us to pause and ponder. Think about it.
Now, we move on to other topics.
