Red Cross (DRK) Criminal Organization Claim?

Postby TruthSeeker7 » 1 week 2 days ago (Mon Nov 16, 2020 2:14 pm)

I came across a picture of a German Red Cross vehicle column that was strafed by Allied planes, most agree that this is an illegal act, but you always have that select group thay tries to defend the Allied criminal actions. So here is the quote/claim. How would someone combat this?

“In the years 1939–1945, the German Red Cross (DRK) was involved in crimes against humanity, particularly against Jews and the Polish nation. As early as 1938, in fact, the organization was lead by Oswald Pohl, a main administrator of concentration camps. Without question, the DRK became a *de facto* Nazi entity” — from Wolfram Wette’s *The Wehrmacht: History, Myth, Reality*

Sir / Madam, a good post.

The photo is indeed damning yet not surprising given the horrendous Allied record of war crimes.
Besides the massive Allied terror bombing of German & Japanese civilians, including the horrendous use A-bombs on Japanese civilians, there certainly was illegal strafing of German civilians. We should remember the Allied attacks on civilian transports of food & medicines that were going into the various work camps. Even renowned US pilot pilot Chuck Yeager admitted to killing German farmers in their fields.

As for the quoted text:
In the years 1939–1945, the German Red Cross (DRK) was involved in crimes against humanity, particularly against Jews and the Polish nation. As early as 1938, in fact, the organization was lead by Oswald Pohl, a main administrator of concentration camps.

Where's the proof from Wolfram Wette? Just him saying so? Too many people are inclined to believe words that appear in 'books'. It's verification, confirmation that matter.

Revisionists are just the messengers, the impossibility of the "Holocaust" narrative is the message.

I didn't find this quote in this edition:

But perhaps I just missed that.

I think the argument is that the German Red Cross (a national organisation) had leading members that were also in NS-organisations.
Didn't realise this until now, but in that light it's strange that I don't recall any allegations against the German Red Cross, since that is the modus operandi to make accusations against any organisations that had NS-links of some sort.
