RANSACKING THE REICH
In terms of manufacturing wealth, Hitler’s Germany was second only to the United States. During the 1930s Hitler’s Reich and the German people were so wealthy it was inevitable it would be mugged. Comparisons between life in the Capitalist West and Communist East were being compared to the paradise National Socialist Germany had become. This was a threat to the Capitalist / Communist alliance.
A taboo topic is the Allied plunder of the defeated Reich. From the onset of war and the cost of millions of lives (and 6 million Jews so we’re told), the Allies constantly spurned Germany’s many reasonable peace offers. To accept would jeopardise opportunity to ransack the Reich.
From as early as February 1943, the USSR established the Trophy Brigades. Their purpose was to ransack and to share with the Allies the spoils of war. Every German home, thousands of factories, tens of thousands of cars, millions of captive slaves became the prize of war.
Germany’s entire merchant marine and manufacturing base became war booty. The ransacking of Germany reduced the Reich to an empty shell. Plunder included surrender to Stalin 21 nations including Poland for whose territorial integrity the war was started. Don’t laugh, it is not a laughing matter.
Ralph Keeling, Institute of American Economics: “The sacking of Germany will go down in history as one of the most monstrous acts of modern times. Its excess beggars description and its magnitude defy condemnation.”
“I felt sorry for the German people. We were planning, and we had the force to carry out our plans, to obliterate a one mighty nation. I had an uneasy feeling that those eighty million Germans somehow or other would survive to fight again.” U.S. Admiral Daniel Leahy.
