Unfair Requirement

To the Editor

Your Nov. 29 front-page article on the Jewish groups involved in the distribution of settlement money from Swiss banks reports that the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany "has all faced criticism from survivors and others." That is putting it mildly.
     For the last three years the Association of Survivors of the Holocaust From the Former Soviet Union has been fighting the claims conference while our members are living and dying in poverty.
     The most demeaning requirement that prevents many survivors from receiving restitution is the refusal by the claims conference to accept eyewitness testimony from survivors or outside witnesses of persecution. Thus, someone who miraculously outvied and crawled out from under a pile of corpses at Babi Yar would be denied restitution because he or she had no documentation to prove it.

St FRUMKIN Los Angeles, Nov.30, 1998

The writer is senior Adviser, Association of Holocaust Survivors From the Former Soviet Union.
     The above is scanned by me from a copy of the news paper. I neither can nor will comment upon at this stage. I might come back to the letter later.
     I ask you all to save my letters you might need them later.

To all my American readers.
     You should ask your senators and other politicians how far they will let the destruction of your armed forces go. For more information, please read Pensacola News Journal from November 19, 1998. Here you will find some statements:

All over in the military one have discovered large holes in the armaments.
- Ships like aircraft carrier "Enterprise" sails in the Persian Gulf with a lack of 300 seamen
- the Air Force have problems to find pilots for the jet fighters. Jet fighters with experience leave their duty because of lack of spare parts. They are tired of being commanded to go all over the world
- the Marian Corps uses armoured vehicles that constantly needs mending
- the Army can not educate the recruits satisfactory, reason the weapons are too old

If one of you can send me the story, I will mail if to all my readers.

Today’s historical news letter
     To day I will tell you the story of a some unfortunate Jews at Sachsenhausen. You can find the story in a Czech document dated Prague December 15, 1945. The document has number U-395/45 and is issued by "Czechoslovakian Ministry of the Interior, Central Crime Office". The story is that of 12 Czech Jews and 33 Jews of other nationalities. These unfortunate Jews were forced by the Germans to produce false banknotes, of British and US currency.
     The document tells us that Germany from the beginning of their occupation of Czechoslovakia started to steal gold, silver, foreign currency and other valuables from Czech banks. They even tried to get hold of Czech valuables in foreign banks. All of cause in order to buy weapons to be prepared for the coming war.
     (The document fails to tell of the gold President Edvard Benes sent and took with him out of the country to buy supporters for his policy among French and British politicians. Part of the money Benes took with him was used by him and Masaryk and others. See David Irving’s book on Churchill Volume I. my comment)

Here is the first part of the report:

SECRET
Translation from Czech  Czechoslovak Ministry of the Interior, Central Criminal Office.

No. U.395145. Prague, December 15, 1945.
REPORT
SACHSENHAUSEN
     From the very beginning of the occupation of Czechoslovakia, the Germans did all in their power to take possession of Czechoslovak claims abroad, of foreign currency in banks, of gold and indeed of all means by which they could carry out purchases of goods and raw materials abroad. They needed these urgently for further arming. This endeavour was successful, but in addition the occupying power took several other legal measures to secure possession abroad of privately owned assets of Czechoslovak subjects. As these measures were largely unsuccessful, the Nazis worked with the help of their trustees, who were connected with the so-called Zollfahndungstellen (customs-offices). These used the vilest methods, especially among the Jews who tried to escape abroad before their internment. As a result the Jews tried to buy English and American currency at any price. Its value, therefore, increased on the black market considerably. The demand for English pounds and for the American dollar led to the forging of these notes and the forged notes were then sold to Jews, who wanted to leave the Protectorate illegally; a separate report on this forgery will be presented to the British authorities. The above mentioned events and the activity of the German financial authorities have confirmed that the independent German economy, praised by Hitler, and the value of the German Mark, was an untrue boast. Already during the first years of the occupation it was known that the Germans did not possess the most necessary foreign currency, mainly English and American.
     The Germans pretended seriously to the protectors of law in Europe and made a lot of fuss with the famous German Academy of Law - just as in 1940 they made a lot of fuss with the International Criminal Police Commission (International Bureau); at that time Himmler ordered the transfer of this Commission from Vienna to Berlin; its head was to be the Chief of the German Security Police, Reinhard Heydrich. All along they pretended to have the consent of all states which participated in the Commission. After the extermination of Heydrich by Czech patriots in May 1942, Himmler appointed as his successor Ernst Kaltenbrunner, on May 29,1943. Kaltenbrunner had similarly occupied a leading post in the German Security Police. In the paper of the International Criminal Police Commission, internationale Kriminalpolizei, they organised a faked battle against criminality and published for example descriptions of completely insignificant counterfeits of English bank-notes. They did likewise in another international bulletin called Erkennungszeichen, which was to have been the means of exposing forgers of banknotes. We would have, however, looked in vain for the descriptions of counterfeits of the Sachsenhausen type in these papers. It is evident from here ascertained facts that the forgers in the International Criminal Police Commission and in the Reich Criminal Police Bureau, the German expert teachers and possibly even the Reich Bank, served the German public crime and war crime.
     In this connection it is necessary to point out, that already in 1940 when the Prague Criminal Police liquidated Vojtech Hrdina's workshop, in which English one-pound notes were forged, two officials of the Reich Headquarters of the Security Bureau (RSHA - Reichssicherheitshauptamt) in Berlin, arrived in Prague and showed unusual interest in the whole case, although the case had no connection whatever with German interests and from the standpoint of criminology the whole case had been completely cleared up. The Germans showed similar interest in the case of Richard Hallasch, forger of five-pound notes, in 1941. Both these cases were intentionally published in the , "Internationale Kriminalpolizei" as having been exposed by the German Criminal Police. This was one of the attempts to prove to the world that they had a will to fight against criminality, although at the same time these same German Police searched for experts amongst the Jews all over the concentration camps. For the German forging-factory at Sachsenhausen. There is no doubt that the counterfeits of the Sachsenhausen type came to the Reich Bank, as these were put into circulation already from 1941, and at that time almost the whole of Europe and the Mediterranean were under German domination.
     The Goebbels propaganda went hand in hand with Heydrich's and Kaltenbrunner’s activity. It presented to the world the following sensational information as if the Allies had forged bank-notes of liberated countries.
     The counterfeits were made for the Germans to use when invading Britain. When the Germans decided they did not want to invade Britain the counterfeits they decided to drop the counterfeits over Britain in order to start a confusion in the British monetary system.

Let us read part of the report:

Four bank notes were printed on one sheet of paper. Firstly the whole reproduction was printed and then numbers and series added by the numbering machine. When five-pound notes were being printed, there was one extra stage in the work as the word FIVE on the left hand side at the bottom had to be printed separately. This is printed in a special black colou, differing from the rest. The printers had great difficulty with the print and with the colou. They could never achieve the tone of the original. The numbers and series were printed on the watermarked paper according to an index, brought from time to time by Krueger from the RSHA. The printing works was the center of the SS's attention; the work in it, as in the other workshops, was under constant guard.
     Apart from English 5,10, 20, and 50 pound notes, there were also printed various counterfeits of bonds and documents (see separate chapter later on).
     Ing. Oskar Skala made some secret notes about the printing of these bank notes. According to this and from his memory, bank notes to the total value of £ 134,609,945 were printed from December, 1942 to February, 1945, i.e.

3,945,867 - five pound notes
2,398,981 - ten pound notes
1,337,325 - twenty pound notes.

All printed counterfeits were entered in books, according to value, numbers, series and numbers of watermarks. In these books it was also noted which counterfeits were issued to the RSHA. Apart from other counterfeits, 500 series of five pound notes with the letter A,E,D,H,P,S,V,U were printed. On some counterfeits the place of issue was Liverpool, Birmingham or Manchester and these were named )~supplementary series'(. The supplementary series had the serial number at the top and the letter V at the bottom. In addition to other series, series V 153,163, 158,165 and 170 belong to this. The dates of issue of the bank notes and their series depended on the letters and numbers of the watermarks. Among others, eighty series of ten pound notes were printed on paper marked with the letters A, B, C, and about fourteen series of ten and twenty pound notes on paper marked with the letter M. Nine series of twenty pound notes and twenty series of fifty pound notes were printed on paper marked with the letter N.
     Of this vast production of counterfeits, the following were sent to the RSHA:

264,863 - five pound notes
176,361 - ten pound notes
141,046 - twenty pound notes
89,152 - fifty pound notes.

The total value of £ 10,361,325, worked out as a percentage, is not quite 70/0 of all counterfeits printed. The greatest number was taken away after the invasion in June 1944. According to the statements of the 55 some consignments of counterfeits were put straight into aeroplanes and taken to the rear of the Allied armies where they were used by saboteurs.

LET US THEN LOOK AT THE CONCLUSION OF THE REPORT

Conclusion
    From the 5th May, 1945 to the present date, the following counterfeits, which were asserted by former members of the Sonderkommando to be counterfeits of the Sachsenhausen type, have been confiscated in Czechoslovakia: Fourteen five-pound notes, nine ten-pound notes and two twenty-pound notes. These counterfeits were offered for sale to the Czechoslovak National Bank and all their holders were certain of their genuineness. The counterfeits are so perfect that only an expert, after careful examination, could determine that they were forged. They were brought by members of the Western forces from Austria and Bavaria where they had either exchanged them or obtained them from military personnel. The Central Criminal Office is at the same time investigating the possibility that former prisoners, members of the Sonderkommando, may use these counterfeits. There is no positive evidence that this may be the case.

Our investigations basically clear up the German crime and their results may serve the American and British authorities as a basis for completely clearing up the forging of banknotes in Sachsenhausen~ It seems especially necessary to carry out investigations in the Reichsbank, in the former Central Office for the Prosecution of Forgers of Money in Berlin, in the paper-mill in Hanemuehle, and to trace Krueger's secretary, Witek-eva, whose last residence was in Berlin, and to search systematically for members of the SS, who were direct participants, as far as the Allies are concerned in the case.

The result of the investigation brought not only a great deal of evidence for the prosecution of forgers of money, but it also proved that the German Police led by the Austrian Kaltenbrunner, as a leading factor in the International Criminal Commission, misused this high institution for a state crime, which, by its extent, will enter the history of criminal law.

NOT ONLY MONEY WERE COUNTERFEITED IN SACHSENHAUSEN

Translation from Czech of photostatic copy of Newspaper Ojtting

Peculiar Counterfeits of English Postage Stamps

We bring further details of the recent news of the CTK from Stockholm. These details come from the Swedish stamp collectors magazine: Svensk Filatelistik Tidskrift.

"Swedish collectors and agents for postage stamps, have received from the firm" Special Stamp (which gave as their address a Post Office Box and a number of the banking account of the Post Office Savings Bank in Stockholm) a great deal of curious postage stamps with this note attached:

"Special series of stamps were issued in memory of the opening of the invasion on the Western Front. These should express the sincere friendship between the invasion armies and the Soviet Army. The British government also express through this emission the friendship which influences the Allied policy towards the Soviet Union. The profits from the sale of occasional stamps will be donated to generally useful purposes. The main part of the profits will, however, be used for the establishment of a basic fund for the research of the common idea of the British and Soviet imperialism. We should be obliged if "you would send" he money for the stamps through the Post Office Savings Bank. If you wish to be supplied with further series write to the address of our Post Office Box, stating the number of stamps required."

There can be no doubt that the stamps are very special. They are being circulated either new or stamped "London, 6 June 1944 Special Stamp", i.e. with the date of the invasion. The series is similar to that still valid with the portrait of King George VI, valuing from 3d. to ½d. The cross on the crown, however, was exchanged for a Soviet star which can also be found in the real heraldic floral motive. On the left hand side are a sickle and hammer. Another series has a black quadrangular overprint. Below the top frame of the overprint is written De Liquidation of Empire", above the bottom frame are mentioned alternately names of various British colonies such as Barbados, Bermuda, Hongkong, Jamaica, St. Lucia, Singapore, Trinidad, etc.

To crown it all, there is a forged English Coronation stamp of 1937. On this stamp the portrait of the Queen was substituted by that of Stalin and instead of the original date there is this text: "Teheran, 28.11.1943". Further, the monogram in the stamp has been changed to "USSR", which letters we also find above the portrait of the King. Above Stalin's portrait is, on the contrary, Britannia. The hammer was put into the Royal crown. The Soviet symbols are also to be found on both sides of the stamp.

The above-mentioned Swedish philatelist paper further adds that by investigation it was ascertained that neither the firm which offered the stamps nor the alleged Post Office Box, nor the number of the banking account of the Swedish Post Office Savings Account, exist. The paper concludes its news: It remains a mystery whence and why these counterfeits were distributed.

-------------

I presume you are not surprised if I tell you that some of the Jews that worked as counterfeiters were gassed.

I have not been able to establish wether or not the document were used in the Nürnberg Trials. The two index books are not written for documents searches search for documents. I would be very surprised if the document was used, but then anything was possible in those days. The only thing that counted was to smear the Germans and their leaders.

COMMENTS

The amazing thing about this report is:

  1) German Jews were allowed to leave the country before the war. Why would they not allow Check Jews to leave. Germany’s policy was to move the Jews out of Europe.
  2) Germany did not trade at the London Trade Exchange. They exchanged goods with the countries that needed German goods, or used other means of payment.
  3) The Germans could not find anybody but Jews to do the counterfeiting for them. Not even the engraver used by the Reichsbank was good enough to do the counterfeiting for SS and Himmler or Kaltenbrunner. Not even among the jailed Germans, known counterfeiters were asked/ordered to handle this task. No, only people from the race the Germans hated above all on earth were chosen. A further important point on this subject would the instance from about 1936 when Heydrich was able to have forged something like 10,000 letters incriminating the best officers in the Red Army in plots against Stalin. Such was the quality that the German forgers were capable off that they were able to forge the handwritting of so many. The files that this was put into was passed to Stalin by Benes whom then ordered a purge against the Red Army officer corps. The german forgers then were clearly very good, casting doubts on the truth on the claims made in this document about only Jewish forgers being good enough to handle the forging operation.
  4) Counterfeit money used by an invading army. 'Bull sh..’. Excuse my language. An invading army does not carry other currency but its own. If they need currency of the invaded country they demand it from the bank and leave a written "I owe You" which they pay at a later time, after the invasion.
  5) To drop counterfeit money in a country to create damage to a currency is a pure fairytale and especially when the counterfeits are so bad that anybody can see it. No inhabitant of a country would use it in order to harm his countries econnomy when it has been dropt from an aeroplane.
     By the way the counterfeits were so bad that could not be used. But of cause in a fairy-tale and as long as Germany was on the losing line everything was allowed.
  6) The counterfeits were really bad. The watermark was wrong. The paper was wrong and the colours were wrong.
     I am convinced that if a country wanted to make counterfeits of an other country’s money they could do so without being easily detected, and so could the Reichsbank. The reason why countries do not counterfeit each others money is the consequences that would lead to and of course international agreements. But as I said above when it comes to Germany during the war any fairytales can be told.
  7) Sachsenhausen was inside the old German borders. According to the August 19, 1960 news paper article in "Die Zeit" by Martin Broszat there were no gassing s of Jews within the old German borders, ie neither in Dachau nor in any other camps was anyone ever gassed during WWII.

This information can be checked on Internet. See: www.codoh/incom/incombroszat.html

I have the above story from a Danish book. It is an incredible story which everybody should read. I had a good laugh when I read it, and so would you I think.

Have a nice week, take care of yourselves. Be happy
     Heil og Sæl. Old Norse: "Heill ok sæll" reads "live - be invulnerable - and happy." The words can be found in Mariu Saga from the year 1230. In Njåls Saga from 1200, here it is used as "Kom heill ok sæll, frende". (Come alive and happy, friend) ok = and; frende = friend.The word heill can also be found in the Edda Poems.
     Now you all know some Old Norse, use it and let your frend know some Norse words. The Norsemen were remarkable, and so are those who seeks for truth.
     Did you know that Norway once possessed The Orkney Islands, (Norse Sudreyjar) Shetland Islands (Norse Hjaltland). These islands were given as guarantee to a loan for a dowry as his daughter married the king by the Danish King Christian II to a Scottish king. The daughter were so ugly that only a large dowry could make the king marry her. King Christian II never paid back the loan and Norway lost Hjaltland and Sudreyjar. I should probably reclaim the islands on behalf of the Norse Republic?

As time goes by I might even bring you some knowledge of Norse/Norway’s history. To my Norse is Norway, you might have an other opinion, but that does not count when it comes to Norsemen and The Land Norse.

Heil og Sæl
