Gestapo, Hitler’s Secret Police

3 November 2013

The Geheime Staatspolizei (German for Secret State Police, abbreviated “Gestapo”) was the secret police of Nazi Germany, and its main tool of oppression and destruction, which persecuted Germans, opponents of the regime, and Jews. It later played a central role in helping carry out the Nazi’s “Final Solution.”

The Gestapo was formally organized after the Nazis seized power in 1933. Hermann Göring, the Prussian minister of the interior, detached the espionage and political units of the Prussian police and proceeded to staff them with thousands of Nazis. On April 26, 1933, Göring became the commander of this new force that was given power to shadow, arrest, interrogate, and intern any “enemies” of the state. At the same time that Goring was organzing the Gestapo, Heinrich Himmler was directing the SS (Schutzstaffel, German for “Protective Echelon“), Hitler’s elite paramilitary corps. In April 1936, he was given command of the Gestapo as well, integrating all of Germany’s police units under Himmler.

Did MI5 join Gestapo to hunt reds?

COLLABORATION between MI5 and the Gestapo was crucial to surveillance of Communist Party members in Britain including historian Eric Hobsbawm, an explosive new analysis reveals.

This video from Britain says about itself:

Professor Eric Hobsbawm is interviewed on the so called ‘Responsible capitalism.’

Eric Hobsbawm fled nazi Germany in the 1930s. Being a Jew, that very probably saved him from Hitler’s Holocaust.

The Conrad Landin aricle continues:

Historians yesterday blasted British governments for double standards as they attacked Eastern bloc states over surveillance while using similar tactics on an industrial scale.

The first sections of Mr Hobsbawm’s MI5 file were opened to public access at the National Archives last autumn, and reveal that British security services first took an interest after he corresponded with journalist and International Brigades member Hans Kahle.

Investigating the late Mr Hobsbawm’s file for the London Review of Books, historian Frances Stonor Saunders concludes it is “likely” some of Mr Kahle’s file “came from MI5’s liaison with the Gestapo” as it included “close knowledge” on his activity in the German Communist Party.

Ms Stonor Saunders argues that a “crucial liaison” was established between MI5 deputy counter-espionage chief Guy Liddell and Rudolf Diels, head of nazi spying bureau Abteilung 1A, which soon became the Gestapo, in 1933.

“MI5’s prewar liaison with Hitler’s political police was built on the promise of reciprocity, so it is reasonable to fear that there was two-way traffic in blacklists between Berlin and London,” she wrote in an article to be published next month.

“How long this arrangement lasted is a matter of speculation.

“What is known is that both MI5 and MI6 had information that must have come from a German source concerning the political activities of the left-wing refugees who sought sanctuary in Britain from 1933 onwards.

“If they didn’t already have a personal file, most of them acquired one within days of arriving at a British port.”

In the months immediately following the end of the war in 1945, “fresh traces on suspected communists were being received daily from British intelligence outposts in the defeated territories of the Third Reich,” Ms Stonor Saunders notes.

There is no evidence that Mr Hobsbawm’s own file included direct imports from Germany, but it is possible that files handed over included information on the Sozialistischer Schuelerbund, the communist-affiliated organisation of school students of which Hobsbawm was a member.

Communist Party of Britain history group convenor Graham Stevenson said the confirmation came as “no surprise.

“Anyone reading the Daily Worker in the 1930s would see it was going to efforts every day to highlight how Britain was working with Germany to undermine the Soviet Union,” he told the Star.

Mr Stevenson said the same criticisms made of socialist governments in Eastern Europe could be made of Britain’s surveillance tactics.

“You see the hypocrisy, the comparison with the Stasi, when you see the level of intrusion in these files.”

It come days after it was revealed the Metropolitan Police’s Special Branch hold files on 10 serving Labour MPs.

Labour MP Mike Gapes labelled Special Branch “the Stasi’s British equivalent” in a debate about their surveillance in Parliament on Thursday.

Nazis hide from racism protesters behind cops

Monday 23rd March 2015

A TINY posse of far-right extremists was outnumbered and heavily protected by police when they staged a march in Newcastle on Saturday.

The event was billed as a “White Man March” and groups taking part included the National Front and the British Movement — the openly nazi group founded and run by the late Colin Jordan.

Marchers carried union flags and banners featuring far-right symbols such as the sun wheel, or Black Sun, symbol, also used by Ukraine’s fascist Azov Battalion.

Anti-fascists estimated that about 85 people took part, far fewer than those who gathered to oppose them.

It is believed that nine of the right-wing extremists were arrested.

The master race has never been very bright or attractive, so before the march even started two senior figures in the National Front were arrested,” said a spokesman for anti-racism group Hope Not Hate.

– Just four people turned out to a demo in Edinburgh by Germany-based right-wing outfit Pegida on Saturday.

German neo-nazi violence drives mayor away

German far-right chases mayor away

Today, 20:55

In eastern Germany, a mayor has resigned out of fear of the extreme right. Neo-Nazis have received permission from the government of the state of Saxony-Anhalt to demonstrate against the arrival of asylum seekers today at the private residence of the mayor of Tröglitz.

That was a reason for mayor Nierth Markus (CDU) to surrender his chain of office. “Not because he is afraid of the Nazis, but to protect his family,” said his wife. According to her, the family suffered all week from the worst abuses.

“Should I have exposed my children, who lately had to endure so much already, to armed agents in front of their children’s rooms while racist and hate-filled chants were heard?

Markus Nierth on Facebook

In a statement on Facebook Nierth confirms that he wanted to protect his children and he writes that he feels abandoned by the state government.

The main party in the Saxony-Anhalt state government is Mayor Nierth’s own party: the (conservative) Christian Democrats.

Tröglitz has 3,000 inhabitants. The asylum center would accommodate 50 people. In recent weeks, there were plenty demonstrations against it. Opponents of the village administration were supported by the neo-Nazi political party NPD. Nierth (CDU) favors the coming of the asylum center.

German Pegida racists’ anti-refugee violence


This video is called Pegida: Hatred on the march. It says about itself:

11 February 2015

In this episode of Observers Direct, we had to the city of Dresden in eastern Germany. Dresden is home to the PEGIDA movement, which stands for “Patriotic Europeans against the Islamisation of the West”. Since October, they’ve held weekly rallies over what they see as the threat posed by Muslim immigrants to … society.

Our Observer works with refugees in Dresden. Julien Pain went to meet him there.

Translated from Wirtschaftswoche weekly in Germany:

Dresden: Right-wing Pegida protesters attack refugee camp

Pegida boss Bachmann always pretends that his followers are peaceful. After a recent “walk” by these critics of Islam, however, rightist persons tried to attack a protest camp of refugees.

After the end of a Pegida demonstration in Dresden about two dozen right-wing extremists have tried to attack a protest camp of refugees. On Monday night the police in the square in front of the Semperoper immediately positioned themselves between the two sides and prevented worse. Of injured people, initially nothing was known, a police spokesman reported in the early hours of Tuesday. In the square, several hundred supporters of the refugees had gathered to prevent an evacuation of the camp expected that evening.

Around 6,000 supporters of the anti-Islam movement Pegida had gone on Monday evening to Dresden. After the end of the rally, about 100 people flocked to the protest camp. While about two dozen of them tried to storm the place, others demanded verbally the evacuation of the camp.

According to Dutch NOS TV, the Pegida attackers threw incendiary devices at the camp, while shouting: ‘Ausländer raus!’ [Foreigners out].

The Wirtschaftswoche article continues:

Despite a ban, in the Belgian port city of Antwerp on Monday night about a hundred Pegida supporters gathered. The police surrounded the demonstrators according to a report by the Belgian news agency Belga. Some people have been arrested. The city government had banned the demonstration as too dangerous.

Among the demonstrators was Filip Dewinter, leader of the extreme right party Vlaams Belang. Also, Dutch neo-nazis of the Nederlandse Volksunie (NVU) had traveled to Antwerp to join the demonstration, according to the NVU Facebook page. Dutch (right wing) daily De Telegraaf writes that 12 Pegida people were arrested, and one policeman was injured.
