P. O. Box 1627 ,
6 January 2004
I have somewhat belatedly read an article from The NZ Herald,
dated Nov. 6 03, entitled “Special forces commander fired over
anti-Semitic speech.” I enclose a copy of the article. The article
concludes with a quote from Paul Spiegel of the Central Council of Jews,
stating that “people abroad can’t understand” how certain
statements could be made from a Government employee and an Opposition
The statements deal with a speech made by Christian Democrat
Martin Hohmann who described Jews as “a race of perpetrators”.
Apparently Hohmann had stated in a speech in October that Jews had acted
“like a race of perpetrators” during the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution,
and that many had been involved with the Cheka and NKVD.
His party bosses reprimanded Hohmann and historians apparently
dismissed his statement as “amateur rubbish”.
Worst still Brig. Gen. Reinhard Günzel. Commander in chief of
the elite KSK forces and a forty-year veteran was dismissed for writing
a private letter of support to Hohmann.
As a non-German there are certainly things about this I
“can’t understand”, to use Mr Spiegel’s expression.
I can’t understand the statement from your “historians” who
claim that reference to Jewish involvement in Bolshevism and in
particular the terror squads, is “amateur rubbish”. What kind of
historians do you have and what rubbish are they teaching your youth? It
seems that the young are being taught to dishonour their parents and
grandparents, rather than to honour them for their sacrifices.
As for the alleged Jewish involvement in Bolshevik sadism, the
Jewish role in communism and the Bolshevik Revolution was widely known
by both Gentiles and Jews at the time. Winston Churchill for e.g. in an
article he wrote for the Illustrated Sunday Herald (“Zionism vs.
Bolshevism – a struggle for the soul of the Jewish people”, Feb. 8,
1920) described communism as “a movement among the Jews”, a “world
wide conspiracy… of envious malevolence” “for the overthrow of
civilisation.” In the context of what Hohmann and Guenzel were
condemned for stating, Churchill wrote: “…And the prominent, if not
indeed the principal, part in the [Soviet] system of terrorism… has
been taken by Jews…”
If we follow Churchill’s assertion, starting with the killing
of the Czar and his family, here Jews served as the perpetrators, from
the orders given by Jacob Sverdlov, first president of the
Immediately after the November Revolution the Petrograd Cheka
became the embryonic Soviet secret police, headed by Uritsky. The first
head of the Cheka was a Pole, Dzerzhinsky, of whom Vaksberg states he
was totally indifferent to his duties and focused on his position as
head of agriculture. Vaksberg states that the real head of the Cheka was
Yagoda, who became chief of the GPU.
Jewish academic G Ginsberg, states that “during the 1920s and
1930s Jews were a major element in the secret police…” (“The
fateful embrace – Jewry and the state”, 1994).
The director of the Gulag system was Frenkel, Matvei Berman was
chief of concentration camps. Boss of the White Sea canal slave labour
project was Firin; deputy chief, Rappoport; overseer Solts, at a time
when the NKVD was headed by Beria, whom the Jewish academic Prof. Ivan
Kalmar identifies as Jewish (“Portrait of a culture”, 1993).
The perpetrator of the contrived first Ukrainian famine was
Khalatov, and of the second Kaganovich. More died in that genocide
(7,000,000-10,000,000) than Jews who died in the German enemy alien
internment camps due to typhus and food shortages. In 1997 a book on the
Soviet secret police in the
In 1995 Ukrainian prime minister Valery Gurzin stated that the
reason for Ukrainian anti-Semitism was due to the Jewish predominance
among the NKVD and as perpetrators of the Ukrainian famine. Presumably
he would be jailed if he made that statement in Germany (?).
The situation was the same with the monstrous Soviet regime in
Where Bolshevik regimes were established outside the
Gen. Guenzel seems to have served his country with distinction,
yet one private letter that does not accord with the contrived image of
Jews as sacrosanct, albeit one based on historically-verifiable fact, is
sufficient to end a distinguished career overnight. What kind of nation
is it that treats its heroes and patriots in such a manner yet lauds
traitors such as Willy Brandt?
When one thinks of a Daniel Goldhagen or of the much lauded Elie
Wiesel, and many others who condemn Germans as a “perpetrator race”
on the basis of the Judaic concept of collective and hereditary guilt,
“people abroad” certainly “can’t underhand it”. Most of all we
can’t understand it when the German response to such ridicule is to
perversely roll over and beg for more. Certainly the double standards
involved are perpetrating an unwarranted Germanophobia against post-war
generations, as per the abuse German schoolchildren receive in
regard this as an open letter.

Hohmann, who apologised for his remarks last week, was rebuked by the
Christian Democrat leadership, but not asked to resign as an MP.
However, German Jewish leaders said his comments "reached into the
lowest drawer of disgusting anti-Semitism" and historians dismissed
his claims as "amateur rubbish".
Guenzel wrote to Mr Hohmann to congratulate him on his remarks. An
excerpt from his letter read: "You can be sure that with your
opinions, you are speaking from the soul for a majority of our people. I
hope you will not be put off by criticism from the left and that you
will hold your course with courage."
