The Incineration of Hamburg - Another Terrifying and Completely Unnecessary US/UK War Crime

PLEASE SHARE ON SOCIAL MEDIA:  The total destruction of the German city of Dresden in February 1945 has never been justified. There are squalid attempts to downplay the numbers of martyred civilians. Over three days of infamy, 1,249 USAAF and RAF bombers removed from the face of the earth a once-great city. The holocaust, to give the inferno its proper term, is falsely claimed to have led to the loss of 22,000 to 25,000 lives.

Such figures are so absurd that those who recycle loss of human (civilian) life amounting to less than 100,000 should be handed long prison sentences for defamation of the dead and holocaust denial.

The fact is, whatever their losses in the RAF and USAAF, those responsible for the quite uneccasry carnage, compared with the stoicism of the defenceless German population below, were cowards. It was, in their own words, terror bombing for the purpose of instilling terror.  There is nothing heroic about that.

Apologist would have us believe that 1,249 bombers, each of the bombers armed with high explosive bombs, incendiaries and outlawed phosphorous bombs, accounted for the incineration of just seventeen civilians?  Red Army soldiers with Kalashnikovs accounted for more dead civilians than each of the allied bombers?

Common-sense, a formula that palace-publishers never waste their time with and think we won’t either, exposes the propagandists whitewash.

Records reveal that before the outbreak of war the population of Dresden was 650,000. Records go on to reveal that in 1945, the population was 450,000. So, what happened to the 200,000 people no longer living in Dresden?

By late 1944, the armed forces of three world empires, British, Soviet and American, had all but overwhelmed a nation half the size of Texas.  Dresden was an undefended city without means of contributing to the war effort. For this reason, many, included hundreds of thousands of refugees fleeing from the American and British armed Red Army also added to the distressed city’s population.

By any estimate, it is perfectly reasonable to assume a population of 1.5 million mostly defenceless civilians was present in Dresden in February 1945.

The entire city was consumed by flames as a consequence of day and night carpet-bombing by the RAF and USAAF. The most cursory glance at postwar pictures of Dresden reveals a catastrophic panorama of total ruination. Yet, we expected to believe that so few people died their numbers wouldn’t wouldn’t fill a small town’s sports stadium?

Subterfuge and deception, fake news, a state media, censorship and armies of palace publishers ensure secrecy of the history’s most horrific holocausts.

There is the usual excuse that ‘they, the Germans started it’. Not so, WITNESS TO HISTORY by historian Michael Walsh (Amazon) holds a compilation of concessions by British and RAF commanders that admit it was Britain, not Germany that initiated the illegal bombing of non-strategic cities.

This treacherous strategy was used to draw Reich attention from Bolshevik Russia. It is acknowledged that London, Liverpool, Birmingham, Coventry and other British cities were sacrificed to save Soviet cities.

The British who died in retaliatory bombing raids died not for Britain or their country’s way of life but they did suffer and die for the terrifying Soviet Union and its abhorrent way of life.

Yet Dresden was only one of the hundreds of European cities and towns cremated by the Allies. When on April 4, 1945, the City of Kassel surrendered, of a population of 250,000, just 15,000 were left alive. The All Lies Invasion by Mike Walsh.

Airbrushed from the palace publishers story is the account of the equally horrific total destruction of Hamburg, one of the world’s most cultured, Christian, ancient and architecturally beautiful cities in the world (see video).

DEATH OF A CITY by Michael Walsh details the effects of carpet bombing on a civilian population in such horrifying detail that caution when reading is recommended.

The horrendous allied attacks on Hamburg between July 24 and August 3, 1943, reduced to rubble more than 6,000 acres of Hamburg. An estimated 100,000 people lost their lives. When a thousand-year-old city of 1,000,000 souls is incinerated with the loss of so many lives what effect does it have on survivors?

An official German document states: ‘For weeks afterwards eyewitnesses were unable to report without succumbing to their nerves and weeping hysterically. They would try to speak, they would break down and cry: ‘I can’t stand seeing it again; I can’t stand it.’

Many weeks later, a woman who did survive was interviewed. She had still not recovered from the experience: ‘I saw people killed by falling bricks and heard the screams of others dying in the fire. I dragged my best friend from a burning building and she died in my arms. I saw others who went stark mad. The shock to the nerves and the soul, one can never erase.’

The Police President of Hamburg reported: ‘Its horror is revealed in the howling and raging of the firestorms, the hellish noise of exploding bombs and the death cries of martyred human beings as well as the big silence after the raids.

Speech is impotent to portray the measure of the horror, which shook the people for ten days and nights and the traces of which were written indelibly on the face of the city and its inhabitants. No flight of imagination will ever succeed in measuring and describing the gruesome scenes of horror in the many buried air raid shelters. Posterity can only bow its head in honour of the fate of these innocents, sacrificed by the murderous lust of a sadistic enemy.’

Martin Caidin is one of the world’s leading authorities on military science subjects. The high-ranking U.S. Government official was an expert on bombing effects and author of many related books. He described the bombing of Hamburg as: ‘Standing out as the worst of the disasters visited upon civilisation during the insanity of the Second World War.’

The incineration of Hamburg is not a story for the faint-hearted. It is, however, a story that needs to be told so that now and in the future war and profiteering from war is the only enemies of mankind.
