September 1, 1939

    Country:
    Germany
    The war begins with an order for mass murder...!


    On September 1, 1939, at exactly 4:45 a.m., the Second World War begins with the shelling of the Polish "Westerplatte" by the German battleship "Schleswig-Holstein"!

    But the "Führer" of the "Großdeutsches Reich" has something else to do on this day:

    On the same day he authorizes in writing the "Reichsleiter" of the Nazi party NSdAP, SS-Obergruppenfuhrer and head of the "Chancellery of the Führer" Philipp Bouhler...

    [IMG]

    ... and the SS "doctor", Gruppenführer Dr. Karl Brand...

    [IMG]

    ...to carry out the so-called "T4 action", by which the Nazis mean, from their point of view, "destruction of unworthy life"...:

    This "Führer Decree" is the only surviving written murder order that bears Hitler's signature!

    [IMG]

    As the result, within a very short time (from October 1939 to March 1940) and under central control, at least 70,000 people - men, women and children! - killed with physical, mental and psychological disabilities - either with lethal injections or in buses, inside which engine exhaust gases are ducted...:

    Bouhler and Brand direct the action from the specially created "Central Office T4" in Berlin, whereby "T4" is nothing more than the abbreviated postal address of the "Central Office", namely Tiergartenstraße No. 4!

    This party confiscated villa (destroyed during the war) had previously been the home of the late Georg Liebermann, of all things, a staunch anti-Nazi and older brother of the famous painter Max Liebermann!

    Due to protests from church circles (also from abroad), the Nazis only continued the "Vernichtung unwerten Lebens" ("destruction of unworthy life") after this mass action in a covert and less obvious way.

    In total, around 200,000 mentally and physically handicapped people were murdered during her rule.

    It is satisfying for me that neither Brandt nor Bouhler survived the Nazi Reich for long:

    Brandt was tried before the First American Military Tribunal in Nuremberg from December 9, 1946 to August 20, 1947 as part of the Nuremberg Doctors' Trial...

    [IMG]

    ...on August 20, 1947 sentenced to death by hanging and executed on June 2, 1948 in Landsberg am Lech.

    His murder buddy Bouhler...

    [IMG]

    ...joined the group of people who fled Berlin to Bavaria together with "Reichsmarschall" Hermann Göring shortly before the end of the war in order to save their own skin.

    American troops arrested Bouhler and the entire Göring entourage on May 9, 1945 at Fischhorn Castle near Zell am See...:

    On the way to the Dachau internment camp on May 9, 1945 (the day on which the Nazi Reich had to surrender unconditionally), Bouhler committed suicide shortly before arriving in Dachau with the help of a prussic acid capsule.
