I think the real key to what is being attempted by this article is a shift of responsibility on to the lower level Germans for the Holocaust (that never happened). With the ultimate aim being, sometime in the future, shifting it on to the German people as well. Upping the ante, so to say.
The following quotes from the article indicate this to me:
"contradict the traditional image of senior German officers as having little or no knowledge of the mass-killings."
"Another clue to the Holocaust being common knowledge"
"This is further evidence that knowledge of the atrocities was much more widespread among senior officers than many wanted to admit after the war."
"This is a blow against the sanitised Hollywood image of the German army as a clean army totally removed from the atrocities."
More guilt heaped upon the German people.
Have any here not read "Germany Must Perish" By the Jew Theodore N. Kaufman. 1941?
THIS DYNAMIC VOLUME outlines a comprehensive plan for the extinction of the German nation and the total eradication from the earth, of all her people. Also contained herein is a map illustrating the possible territorial dissection of Germany and the apportionment of her lands.
Ch. 1 - GERMANY MUST PERISH
Today's War is not a war against Adolf Hitler.
Nor is it a war against the Nazis.
It is a war of peoples against peoples; of civilized peoples [Jews] envisioning Light,
against uncivilized barbarians [Germans] who cherish Darkness.
Of the people of those nations who would surge forward hopefully into a
new and better phase of life, pitted against the peoples of a nation who
would travel backward enthusiastically into the dark ages. It is a
struggle between the [white] German nation and humanity [Jews].
This war is being waged by the German People. It is they who are
responsible. It is they who must be made to pay for the war.
For not only must there be no more German wars in fact; there must not
even remain the slightest possibility of one ever occurring.
This does not mean an armed mastery over Germany, or a peace with
political or territorial adjustment, or a hope based on a defeated and
repentant nation. Such settlements are not sufficiently conclusive
guarantees of no more German aggression.
This time Germany has forced a Total War upon the world.
As a result, she (the German People) must be prepared to pay a Total Penalty.
And there is one, And Only One, such total Penalty:
Germany (and all people of German descent)
must perish forever! - In fact --not in fancy!
