Lina Heydrich's Book

Postby Revision » 3 months 3 weeks ago (Fri Jul 31, 2020 8:07 am)

I found nowhere discussion about this so I'm posting this here.

______________________________________________


The New York Times: Widow of Heydrich Says 'Holocaust' Ignores Facts: https://www.nytimes.com/1979/02/07/arch ... camps.html


"Lina Heydrich's husband, Reinhard Heydrich, is believed to have been the architect of the Nazi extermination of six million European Jews. Mrs. Heydrich does not believe her late husband had anything to do with the 'Final Solution.'"

"Husband Defended in Book

As a visitor leaves, Mrs. Heydrich offers a book she wrote about her husband called 'My Life With a War Criminal,' in which she says he was not one."

https://archive.org/details/HeydrichLin ... r/mode/2up



In page 48 Reinhard is quoted: "Ich fühle mich frei von aller Schuld." which translates "I am free of any guilt feelings."

Is Reinhard Heydrich denying his guilt relating to Jews? Can someone who knows more German explain the context?


Full Page and annotation:

______________________________________________


I tried to translate the whole document with Google Translate, but the OCR has failed in many places. And because the OCR has failed, the search function neither works perfectly. I also found myself looking many times to the original German document for clarity, Google Translator's English translation being quite unclear.

_______________________________________________


Can someone who knows German better do a little research to find out if there are some other interesting statements?

I might do a new video about this subject and if he/she wants, I will give credits to him/her for helping.

The rest of the paragraph suggests that he is saying that he doesn't feel guilty about the death of SA leader Ernst Röhm during the "Night of the Long Knives" in 1934, though it was a personal sacrifice to him.

Thanks for clarifying.


I did a little bit more research and this passage might be interesting (I had to use Google Drive's OCR because Internet Archives OCR had many mistakes):

P. 106-108:

Bei aller Begeisterung für seine neue Aufgabe hat er sein Amt in Berlin nicht vernachlässigt. Sein Schicksal ereilte ihn ja auch auf einer der routinemäßigen Fahrten nach Berlin. Schon Ende 1941 übertrug ihm Göring einen Auftrag, der sich nachträglich als die größte Anschuldigung und Belastung herausstellen sollte: Die „Endlösung der Judenfrage". Durch seine Unabkömmlichkeit in Prag wurde eine Zusammenkunft aller maßgeblichen Herren und Dienststellen auf den Januar 1942 verschoben. Als Reinhard mir von diesem Auftrag erzählte, stellte er die Sache verhältnismäßig sachlich dar. Es handelte sich, wie er sagte, um die Organisierung der „Auswanderung aller europäischen Juden nach Zentralrußland“. „Du willst", fragte ich ihn, damit doch wohl nicht sagen, daß alle Juden nach Sibirien deportiert werden sollen?" Seine Antwort: „Ja, das will ich damit sagen. Sibirien ist nicht das Land des Schreckens. Es ist nur durch die Strafgefangenenlager der Russen zu einem Schreckgespenst gemacht worden. Denk' doch mal an den Vater von Pomme.“ Was sagte der? Ich besann mich. Major Pommes Vater (Pomme war bei Reinhard Chefadjutant für die Polizei) war im Ersten Weltkrieg Kriegsgefangener in Rußland gewesen und nach Sibirien verschickt worden. Er hat immer wieder zu seinem Sohn gesagt: „Einmal noch möchte ich als freier Mann nach Sibirien. Es ist ein wunderbares Land."

In Sibirien, so erzählte Reinhard mir, gäbe es alles: fruchtbares Land, Erze, Mineralien und Kohle. Als ich ihn skeptisch fragte, ob die Juden denn mit den neuen Verhältnissen auch fertig werden würden, sagt er nur: „Aber sicher. Sie sind intelligent, und sie brauchen einen neuen Anfang'. So wie es jetzt ist, geht es nicht mehr weiter. Wir wollen dieses Problem ein für allemal aus der Welt schaffen. Jetzt, im Krieg, bietet sich eine einmalige Gelegenheit!" Und dann skizzierte er seinen detaillierten Plan, der selbst den Wegebau einschloß. Natürlich würde ein großer Prozentsatz, so hob er hervor, diese Umsiedlung nicht überstehen, insbesondere nicht die alten Juden. Mit einem natürlichen Schwund müsse man rechnen. „Die Juden, die wir nach dort bringen“, fuhr er fort, „werden sich einleben.“ Und als ich ihn fragte, wo dieser Staat denn entstehen solle, sagte er: „Im Norden, im Süden, vor oder hinter dem Ural. Hinter dem Ural und in der Mitte." Und dann zeigte er mir das Gebiet auf der Karte. Die Sache hatte nur einen Fehler. Das Gebiet mußte erst erobert werden. Warum, so fragte ich mich danach, sollte eine solche Menschen verschiebung nicht möglich sein. Die Männer Reinhards würden das schon schaffen. So hat für mich die berüchtigte ,,Wannseekonferenz" begonnen.




Google Translator's translation:

Despite all the enthusiasm for his new job, he did not neglect his office in Berlin. His fate overtook him on one of the routine trips to Berlin. As early as the end of 1941, Goering assigned him an order that would later turn out to be the greatest accusation and burden: The "final solution to the Jewish question". Due to its inevitability in Prague, a meeting of all relevant gentlemen and departments was postponed to January 1942. As Reinhard me told about this order, he presented the matter relatively factually. As he said, it was about the organization of the "emigration of all European Jews to Central Russia". "You want," I asked him, so that I would not say that all Jews are to be deported to Siberia? "His answer:" Yes, I mean that. Siberia is not the land of terror. It was only made into a specter by the Russian prison camps. Think of the father von Pomme. "What did he say? I remembered. Major Pomme's father (Pomme was chief adjutant to the police for Reinhard) was a prisoner of war in the First World War had been in Russia and had been sent to Siberia. He kept saying to his son: “Once again I want to go to Siberia as a free man. It is a wonderful country.

Reinhard told me that there was everything in Siberia: fertile land, ores, minerals and coal. When I asked him skeptically whether the Jews would be able to cope with the new conditions, he only said: “Sure. They are intelligent and they need a new start. As it is now, it doesn't go on. We want to remove this problem once and for all. Now, in the war, there is a unique opportunity! "And then he outlined his detailed plan, which included road construction himself. Of course, a large percentage, he emphasized, would not survive this resettlement, especially not the old Jews. With one natural shrinkage has to be expected. "The Jews we bring to there," he continued, "will settle in." And when I asked him where this state was supposed to come from, he said: "In the north, in the south, in front of or behind the Urals. Behind the Urals and in the middle. " And then he showed me the area on the map. There was only one mistake. The area had to be conquered first. Why, I asked myself, should such a shift not be possible. Reinhard's men would do it. That's how the infamous "Wannsee Conference" started for me.

There was no "Night of the Long Knives" during 1934 since the extra-legal executions of Ernst Roehm & Co. thwarted that plan.

Hitler also explains this in his speech:

The story obviously got twisted over time shifting the name from one side to the other.

Nice job finding something no one's ever discussed here. Nor have I ever heard of this.

Is there any version of this speech that has English subtitles?
Now what does it mean for the independent expert witness Van Pelt? In his eyes he had two possibilities. Either to confirm the Holocaust story, or to go insane. - Germar Rudolf, 13th IHR Conference

Not that I know of. The criticalpart is:

....Das heißt, während die Mitglieder der inneren Sekte die eigentliche Aktion planmäßig vorbereiteten, wurden dem weit größeren Kreis der SA-Führer nur allgemeine Mitteilungen gemacht des Inhalts, daß eine zweite Revolution vor der Tür stünde, daß diese zweite Revolution kein anderes Ziel besitze als mir selbst die Handlungsfreiheit zurückzugeben. Daß daher die neue und diesmal blutige Erhebung die „Nacht der langen Messer“, wie man sie grauenvoll bezeichnete, meinem eigenen Sinn entspräche. Die Notwendigkeit des eigenen Vorgehens der SA wurde begründet mit dem Hinweis weiter auf meine Entschlußunfähigkeit, die erst dann behoben sein würde, wenn Tatsachen geschaffen wären. Vermutlich unter diesen unwahren Vorwänden wurde die außenpolitische Vorbereitung der Aktion Herrn von Bethgen übertragen. General von Schleicher nahm das außenpolitische Spiel teilweise persönlich wahr, beziehungsweise ließ es durch seinen Kurier, General von Bredow, praktisch betreiben. Gregor Strasser wurde beigezogen. Anfang Juni ließ ich als letzten Versuch Stabschef Röhm noch einmal kommen zu einer nahezu fünfstündigen Aussprache, die sich bis Mitternacht hinzog. Ich teilte ihm mit, daß ich aus zahllosen Gerüchten und aus zahlreichen Versicherungen und Erklärungen alter treuer Parteigenossen und SA-Führer den Eindruck gewonnen hätte, daß von gewissenlosen Elementen eine nationalbolschewistische Aktion vorbereitet würde, die über Deutschland nur namenloses Unglück bringen könnte....


According to Hitler "Night of the long knives" was the name given to the coup planned by a sect within the SA and serveral others. Essentially this would be a "second Revolution" and I presume the plan was something in the direction of Killing off more moderate National Socialists, liberals and conservatives and then "Nationalising" the "means of production" - that is at least the key industries and big business. Pretty certain that this would have dominoed into wide-spread chaos in Germany and perhaps neighbouring countries. Probably this would also called on other countries to further intervene into Germany. It's counterfactual speculation of course, but plausible one by that. I'm also sure that something like this was the perception among the NS-leadership and even broader non-NS circles in Germany at the time. In that light the harsh response becomes understandable. Bear in mind the frequent political violence in Germany in the years prior to the NS-take-over. So an inner-party purge against suspected coup-plotters shouldn't be too astonishing. And I think it actually had wide-spread approval among the German people, since they were tired of the unrest, uncertainty and political quackery of the previous Weimar period. People wanted finally to rebuild their lives and enjoy the fruits of technological and social progress they had so long worked for.

We should be aware that there can a use of sub-editors or even ghost-writers in books of this sort. Some quotes from the first quarter of the book (references to Kindly download and "He" and "Reinhard" being Reinhard Heydrich, unless context indicates otherwise):
"One day he told me that it had been decided in Hitler's headquarters to establish a large reservation for the Jews in Russia." (780)
So that's revisionist friendly.
"He organised a conference to which all those who had to do with the Jewish problem participated. This conference took place on 20 January 1942 in the guesthouse of the Main Imperial Security Office in Wannsee. Days after the Wannsee conference the attack was carried out on Reinhard in Prague, of whose effects he died. (785)
Which tells us about the limitations on Lina's knowledge.
"In August 1942 a man placed near the front came to her as chief architect on a short visit to us. And he told me what he had seen and experienced. He spoke of mass shootings [.....] It's called "Aktion Reinhard!" (794)
Not good to hear, but consistent with revisionism.

A good find.

Regarding to that passage on the attack on Reinhard, I also felt confused how she could confuse that time, January 20 (The Wannsee Conference) being much colder time than May 27 (the attack) or June 4 (the death of Reinhard).

I made some slight changes to the text in the spots where I was pretty sure I can get them right. However I'm asking if anyone could check and correct the translation. I can understand just a little bit German language (I took a few classes in school), but I feel I would not be good enough for the job. I am not even a native English speaker and I'm only 18 years old with not very many years of experience in the English language, so I'm not even fully sure about the translation in that sense.

(To helper: Please also tell if it is OK or not if I give a small shoutout to you.)



Slightly corrected English translation:
As early as the end of 1941, Goering assigned him an order that would later turn out to be the greatest accusation and burden: The "final solution to the Jewish question". Due to its inevitability in Prague, a meeting of all relevant gentlemen and departments was postponed to January 1942. As Reinhard me told about this order, he presented the matter relatively factually. As he said, it was about the organization of the "emigration of all European Jews to Central Russia".
