Genocide against the German people refers to several incidents in modern history in which the Germans were the aim and victim of genocide. The biggest and most drastic crimes against Germans took place during the Thirty Years' War (in 1618-1648) and in the period of the "Second Thirty Years' War" (from 1914 to 1945) as well as afterwards till 1955. As for the period from the end of the Second World War to 1955 at least 8,800,000 Germans were killed by genocidal actions. Since 1955 new menaces exist which can turn into renewed genocide actions.

Genocide as a crime

Definition according to Convention of the United Nations of 1948

By genocide is understood actions which are committed in the intention to destroy a national, ethnic, racial or religious group, in whole or in part. This definition follows the legal definition as found in the 1948 United Nations Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (CPPCG).[1] Article 2 of this convention defines genocide as "any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such: killing members of the group; causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life, calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; [and] forcibly transferring children of the group to another group."

According to this Convention genocide in wartimes and peacetime must be pursued, as a crime according to international law, by the signatory states.

Genocide in another sense

In another sense genocide also encloses the deliberate homicide of political, economical, ideological or also ethical-moral opponents, but not the military homicide of soldiers, i.e. war in the narrow sense.

Genocides of the German people

17th century

Before the 20th century the genocide of the German people during the Thirty Years' War is to be considered as the most important event. This war originated from confessional differences in the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation and from the intensifying differences between the system of estates and the Habsburg Monarchy. By the intervention of external powers the Empire became the scene of a European struggle for power. The heartland of Europe suffered most. From 5.75 million genocide victims of the Empire during the Thirty Years' War, the Germans lost nearly five million people, which was about one third of 15 million German people.[2] The German population figures of 1600 (14 millions) are reached only in 1750 again.

Later in the 17th century the Palatinate was laid waste in the predatory attacks of the French King Louis XIV during the War of the Palantine Succession (in 1688-1697), about 50,000 Germans were killed. The French had put up a list of 1200 German towns and villages, "eradication" of the people was the openly expressed maxim.[3]

From 1900 to 1945

During the First World War (in 1914-1918) 130,000 Germans were murdered in tsarist Russia (Volhynia/Western Ukraine) only because of their nationality. 508,000 German prisoners of war of the First World War were killed (401,000 of them in Russia). One million civilians in Germany and Austria were slain by the Allies in 1917/18 by a starvation blockade.[4]

The Polish crimes on ethnic Germans between 1918 and 1939 are also to be added to the genocide in the German people.

During the Second World War (in 1939-1945) the Bolshevik elite ordered genocide against the German people once more. In the course of the deportation of Volga Germans within the Soviet Union from 1941 on, from over a million deportees who are taken away in cattle carriages without any opposition at least 400,000 died. The lowest number of defenceless German civilians which the Allies kill during the Second World War by carpet bombings, dropping 1.3 million tonnes of bombs, amounts to 593,000.[5]

Press announcement of Associated Press (AP) of 24th of April 1945 about mass killings of 992,578 German prisoners of war by Western Allies in April 1945

Western Allies commit mass genocide against German prisoners of war in April, 1945

From the 1st to the 22nd of April, 1945, shortly before the complete breakdown and the capitulation of the German armed forces, the Western Allies killed 992,578 German prisoners of war in mass actions. The source is a press announcement on 24th of April 1945, published by the US international news agency Associated Press (AP) from Paris. The announcement appeared among others in "The Evening Independent” (St. Petersburg, Florida) and is documented and generally accessible on account of the digitization of newspaper archives in the USA carried out by Google.[6]

Press announcement of 24th of April 1945:

„April Prisoner Bag Over 1,000,000
Paris, April 24–AP–The Allied bag of German prisoners during April already has passed the one million mark with six more days left in the month. From April 1 to 22 inclusive 992,578 prisoners were killed. It is estimated that well over 20,000 were captured yesterday.“The Evening Independent (St. Petersburg, Florida), Issue of 24th of April, 1945[7]

Since 1945

Research on Eisenhower's Death Camps

Under Soviet rule 66,000 Baltic Germans are murdered after the capitulation of 8 May 1945, from 1944 on in Yugoslavia at least 200,000 Germans who lived there were killed. Authorities, countless groups and individual perpetrators of expelling countries kill 2,110,000 Germans in the course of the expulsion. Apart from the killings of the Western Allied Forces – for example, American military commanders rejected certain auxiliary deliveries of the Red Cross for Germany[8] – 1,094,250 German prisoners of war lost their lives in the Soviet Gulag.[9]

Record of the 20th century

In the period from 1914 to 1919 and from 1941 to 1955[10] at least 6,050,000 Germans, just based on their nationality, were eliminated by members of other nations by genocide.[11]

According to other calculations, which are based on the lowest, in the 1950s and 1960s, official figures obtained, after the surrender of the armed forces only in the period from 1945 to 1950 at least 8.8 million - probably more than 10 million - Germans were killed by the main war victors and perpetrators from the expelling countries Poland, Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia.[12] Perpetrated was the genocide by deliberately starvation (four million victims), by expulsion and massacre expulsion, extermination of prisoners of war and of civilian deportees by means of forced labor, also decimation due to communist hatred. In this way, communists killed in the Soviet camps in the Soviet Occupation Zone 96,000 prisoners.[13]

That a death toll of more than 10 million for the period from 1945 to 1950, in which also the expulsion took place, comes close to reality, derives from the statement of the first Federal Chancellor of the FRG, Konrad Adenauer. About the survivors of the 13 to 17 million German expellees after 1945 Adenauer wrote in his memoirs:

„Only 7.3 millions have come into the East Zone and into the three West Zones. Six million Germans have disappeared from the surface of the earth. They have gone bad, have died.“[14]

In these actions long devised Allied plans to eradicate the German people were realized. Those who gave the orders and the culprits were motivated not least by German-hating extermination ideologists like Henry Morgenthau (→ Morgenthau Plan), Theodore N. Kaufman (→ Kaufman Plan), Ilya Ehrenburg, Frederick Lindemann or Edvard Beneš.

Genocide threat since 1950

Nuclear weapons

After the foundation of the occupied puppet states Federal Republic of Germany (West Germany) and German Democratic Republic (Middle Germany) in 1949 the differences intensified between the West-allied winners and the Soviet Union. This led not only to the fact that the disarmed were armed again in both occupied states on behest of their supremacies and were brought mutually in position, but since 1953 also to the stationing of a big number of atomic weapons on German ground. This fact which exists under the command of the United States till this day makes the FRG the first target for an attack to switch off this arsenal and in this respect involving the risk of the entire destruction of the German people. Since the partial unification of the German states in 1990 there have been on the part of the FRG government no serious strains to finish this threatening situation by drawing these weapons off.[15] On the contrary, it is to be assumed that the FRG will use big amounts to modernize the American menace potential and to maintain.[16]


Zionists such as Barbara Spectre have promoted the massive immigration into Europe to wipe out the native population. Native Europeans are becoming a minority in their own native countries. In the 21st century, the most popular baby name in The UK changed from a British name to Mohammed.[17]


“American and European historians still seem to be light years away from historicizing contemporary history and its aftermath. This is understandable, in view of the fact that acting and writing otherwise would throw an ugly light on crimes committed by the Americans in Germany during and after the second World War and would substantially ruin antifascist victimology, including the Holocaust narrative.” Tomislav Sunic[18]
