For the few faithful that not only read the words but feel what here was said.
Excerpt from the book under work:
The Life of Walther Alexander
The Hell’s furnaces (Die Öfen von Hölle)
One can say that the fate of Walther’s Prussian family came down to the General’s imposition to help Abraham and his family.
His brother Albert, couldn’t but try to persuade his older brother otherwise, as, if found out about he would be blamed as well.
What Albert didn’t know was that the General was deep inside the complot circle to get rid off the little Corporal from Deuchland Kommando when he decided to cover himself of any wrongdoing aftermath by volunteering to the pet project of Heydrich and Eichman as what he believed to be was an up and up position as internment-camps administration as he wasn’t privy of the Wannsee Conference particulars.
SS-Obergruppenführer Reinhard Tristan Eugen Heydrich was the second after Himmler on the SS totem pole, although, he was the Fuhrer’s favorite despite the SS boss dreams to be the second man after Adolf.
On 1942, Heydrich had chaired the Wannsee Conference at which he presented to the heads of a number of German Government departments a plan for the deportation and transporting of 11 million Jewish people from every country in Europe to be worked to death or killed outright in the East or, the implementation of the "Final Solution of the Jewish question" (Die Endlösung der Judenfrage) in the conquered territories. These killing units (Einsatzgruppen) task forces, special-ops units, were paramilitary groups formed under the direction of Reinhard Heydrich and operated by the Schutzstaffel (SS).
SS-Oberstumbannführer Adolf Eichmann.
Reinhard Heydrich disclosed to Eichmann in autumn 1941 that all the Jews in German-controlled Europe were to be exterminated. In 1942, Heydrich ordered Eichmann to attend the Wannsee Conference as recording secretary, where Germany's anti-Semiti measures were set down into an official policy of genocide.
Eichmann was given the position of Transportation Administrator of the "Final Solution to the Jewish Question", which put him in charge of all the trains that would carry Jews to the death camps in the territory of occupied Poland.
In 1944, he was sent to Hungary after Germany had occupied that country prior to a Soviet invasion. Eichmann at first made an offer through Joel Brand (who was to act as an intermediary) to trade captive European Jews to the Western Allies in exchange for trucks and other goods (Blood for goods). When there was no positive response to this offer, Eichmann started deporting Jews, sending 430,000 Hungarians to their deaths in the gas chambers.
Schtzstaffel Gruppenfürer Albert got his order’s papers of service not long away from Berling, he was sent to Sachsenhausen.
He wasn’t as naïve as he wanted his surrounders to believe, but although he suspected about the darks going ons, his own fantasy had not the capability to imagine the scope of the “Solution”
His first thoughts after been confronted with the crematorium furnaces were,
“ oh my God! What have I let myself into…”
But then, it was too late to retreat.
He understood then, that holding a pencil was as letal as holding a gun.
The overwelming scent of death clinget to the newcomer as a shroud.
The Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp was built in the summer of 1936 by concentration camp prisoners from the Emsland camps. Just north of Berlin, soon after Heinrich Himmler 'Reichsführer SS' was appointed to the post of 'head of the German police'.
The camp was located at the edge of Berlin, which gave it a position among the German concentration camps: the administrative centre of all concentration camps was located in Oranienburg, and Sachsenhausen became a training centre for SS officers (who would often be sent to oversee other camps afterwards). The camp was commanded by a number of notable SS officers, some who later commanded Auschwitz and Majdanek in Poland, and some who were some of the most brutal and infamous killers, such as Kramer, Palitzsch, Schwarzhuber who were at Austchwitz, Suhren at Ravensbruck and Graetschus and Niemann who both served at both Belzec and Sobidor death camps.
Albert, a First World War veteran, had seen the tortured faced of many soldiers by insomnia, fatigue, trench’s stress, depression and melancholy…
But the expression on the prisoners faces here were different.
He saw a sense of fatality in many eyes, of surrender, fear and hope, also a bewildered high raised brows of why?
And then there was the zombie expression of the “trusties,” the prisoners spared from the Final Solution as the ones cleaning up the gas chambers, taking the corpses to the crematorium, shoveling the human ashes on wheelbarrows with ungreased axles, so they would emit a maddening and repetitive first three notes of Bach’s introduction to his Toccata and Fugue, as they went back and forth from the Hell’s Furnaces made by man.

|It has always amazed me that common German soldiers could adapt to the horrible conditions and atrocities committed by the brutes and heartless thugs that ran the camps, and that obeyed the Fuehrer’s orders. A very scary chapter, Georg.

|Scapegoating others for whatever reason, is always a good start. The cowards will obey their masters if it is a popular sentiment, how far then down the road, or railroad this goes, no one first knows, or would want of imagine. The machinery of state and power, is never far removed from falling into the trap of selfrighteous ideologies, it is always wrong, but on whose side are you on is the question.
You think it can't happen anywhere else, think again, despite all the lessons and good will, humans are killers of the worst kind, especially if for whatever no good reason it is condoned by the masses. Check back into your Indian Native history, and right now, as one Jewish philosopher just noted on Holocaust Rememberance Day,
there is another Holocaust going on just now, it is more horroundeous, and on a daily, much larger scale, just a different species of beings, objectified or scapegoated for the convienience of your taste buds. You want an exuse to hurt someone, rationalizing the end purpose, has always been a neat trick don't you think. I heard all the excuses you could possibly think of, some might even quote the Bible, or some other Godly revelation, in any case it does not take away from your most artful and descriptive writing, and telling the truth as it was, and still is. Blessings! Jasmin Horst

|Hell's Furnaces, Made by Men.
Your book excerpt truly brings these man-made horrors back to life, and helps us all remember what mankind is so horrendously capable of.
And what a graphic.
