WW2-News-Rape-German Women-2 Million

2 Chron. 19:2 "Should you help the wicked and love those who hate the Lord, and so bring wrath on yourself from the Lord."


Do you think it is possible  that so much of our problems today are because we helped and loved the  most evil people who were responsible for the rape and murder of hundreds of millions of Christian people?


The Allies Win WWII & An Epic Orgy Of Torture, Rape, Pedophilia & Coerced Prostitution Descends Upon Defenseless German Civilians

By John Wear
…Senegalese and the French soldiers, drunk at night, would go from door to door until they found girls’ names listed of any age they wished to rape… American provost marshal, Lt. Colonel Gerald F. Beane, said that rape represents no problem to the military police because ‘a bit of food, a bar of chocolate, or a bar of soap seems to make rape unnecessary.’
Churches were frequently used by Russian soldiers to rape… In unending succession were girls, women and nuns violated… Not merely in secret, in hidden corners, but in the sight of everybody, even in churches, in the streets and in public places were nuns, women and even eight-year-old girls attacked again and again…
Most Frenchmen speak of the correctness of the German Army’s behavior. They seem particularly impressed that German soldiers were shot for incivility to women and compare this with the American troops’ bad behavior to women…
There was no where to hide after WWII was intentionally prolonged to carpet bomb Germany. Mothers and girls fleeing the Red Army on foot desperately hoped for better chances in other Allied occupied sectors. Approximately 2 million were raped, this represents more rapes against a defeated enemy than any other war in history. Even bedridden 80-year-old Nuns were raped, young attractive girls stood no chance.
The Rape of German Women
Stalin sought to ease the fears of the Western Allies concerning Soviet atrocities against the German people by issuing the following order to his troops:
Occasionally there is talk that the goal of the Red Army is to annihilate the German people….It would be foolish to equate the German people and the German State with the Hitler clique. The lessons of history tell us that Hitlers come and go, but the German people, the German State, they shall remain.”[1]
Stalin’s reasonable words were not followed by his troops. In reality, rape of German women was implicitly condoned by Stalin. Stalin asked Yugoslav communist leader Milovan Djilas,
Can’t he understand it if a soldier who has crossed thousands of kilometers through blood and fire and death has fun with a woman or takes some trifle?” The Red Army, most of whose soldiers were sex-starved after four years of fighting, raped wherever it went.[2]
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, then a young captain in the Red Army, describes the entry of his regiment into East Prussia in January 1945:
For three weeks the war had been going on inside Germany and all of us knew very well that if the girls were German they could be raped and then shot. This was almost a combat distinction.”[3]
Solzhenitsyn was a committed opponent of such atrocities and vocally opposed the rape of German women. As a consequence, he was arrested and banished to a gulag.
Some of the other Soviet front line troops shared Solzhenitsyn’s attitude toward the proper treatment of German women. Many of these Soviet first echelon troops were more concerned with fighting and survival than with rape and revenge. However, most of the second echelon of Soviet troops were from Asiatic Russia and brought with them attitudes toward conquered people inherited from Genghis Kahn. Other second echelon troops were members of penal battalions or were ex-prisoners from the German concentration camps who had been freed by the Red Army and sent to the front. These soldiers who formed the second wave of troops were regarded even by their comrades as completely merciless.[4]
The savagery of Soviet soldiers was acknowledged by British Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery in his Memoirs. Montgomery wrote:
From their behaviour it soon became clear that the Russians, though a fine fighting race, were in fact barbarous Asiatics who had never enjoyed a civilization comparable to that of the rest of Europe. Their approach to every problem was utterly different from ours and their behaviour, especially in their treatment of women, was abhorrent to us.”[5]
Russian soldiers continually raped German women as the Red Army advanced through Silesia and Pomerania towards Berlin. The German women were frequently ganged raped, often again and again on successive nights. A woman interviewed in Schwerin reported that she had “already been raped by 10 men today.” A German officer in East Prussia claims to have saved a few dozen women from a villa where
on average they had been raped 60 to 70 times a day.”
Another woman in Berlin stated: “Twenty-three soldiers one after the other. I had to be stitched up in a hospital. I never want to have anything to do with any man again.”[6]
There are genuine questions about the German “Guilt” narrative justifying this brutalization.
Churches were frequently used by Russian soldiers to rape German women. A priest from Neisse reports:
The girls, women and nuns were raped incessantly for hours on end, the soldiers standing in queues, the officers at the head of the queues, in front of their victims. During the first night many of the nuns and women were raped as many as fifty times. Some of the nuns who resisted with all their strength were shot, others were ill-treated in a dreadful manner until they were too exhausted to offer any resistance. The Russians knocked them down, kicked them, beat them on the head and in the face with the butt-end of their revolvers and rifles, until they finally collapsed and in this unconscious condition became the helpless victims of brutish passion, which was so inhuman as to be inconceivable. The same dreadful scenes were enacted in the hospitals, homes for the aged, and other such institutions. Even nuns who were seventy and eighty years old and were ill and bedridden were raped and ill-treated by these barbarians.[7]
A letter written by a priest smuggled out of Breslau, Germany on September 3, 1945, states:
In unending succession were girls, women and nuns violated…Not merely in secret, in hidden corners, but in the sight of everybody, even in churches, in the streets and in public places were nuns, women and even eight-year-old girls attacked again and again. Mothers were violated before the eyes of their children; girls in the presence of their brothers; nuns, in the sight of pupils, were outraged again and again to their very death and even as corpses.[8]
When Russian soldiers “liberated” Danzig they promptly liberated all the women of their virtue and chastity. A Russian soldier told the Danzig women to seek shelter in the Catholic cathedral to protect them from the rapes. After hundreds of women and girls were securely inside, the Russian soldiers entered and “playing the organ and ringing the bells, kept up a foul orgy through the night, raping all the women, some more than 30 times.” A Catholic pastor in Danzig states, “They even violated eight-year-old girls and shot boys who tried to shield their mothers.”[9]
A pastor from Milzig said of the Soviet soldiers:
There were no limits to the bestiality and licentiousness of these troops…Girls and women were routed out of their hiding-places, out of the ditches and thickets where they had sought shelter from the Russian soldiers, and were beaten and raped. Older women who refused to tell the Russians where the younger ones had hidden were likewise beaten and raped.”[10]
German women frequently took steps to make their appearance unattractive to Soviet soldiers. The German women sometimes covered themselves with ashes to make themselves look old, painted on red spots to feign disease, or hobbled around on crutches to appear disabled. One woman in East Pomerania took the precaution of removing her false front tooth to make herself look older. Such precautions rarely worked, and the rape victims ranged in age from tiny children to great-grandmothers. Some German women kept their small children by them at all times, and sometimes these children provided a disincentive against the Russian attacks.[11]
Even today people admire Stalin while vilifying this young woman. Stalin slaughtered 10’s of millions and devastated the lives of many millions more.
The Russian rapes caused many German women to commit suicide. The preferred form of suicide was poison, and most Berlin women seem to have been provided with poison before the Red Army arrived. Even when Berlin women were not driven so far as to take their own lives, the rapes inevitably caused disease and unwanted babies. A high percentage of women became infected with venereal disease. Since antibiotics were often unaffordable, eventually the Russians decided to treat the local population themselves. Abortion was a common occurrence, and many abortions were performed without anesthetic. Despite the high incidence of abortion, it is estimated that between 150,000 and 200,000 “Russian babies” were born to German women.[12]
The Soviet soldiers were not the only ones who raped German women. The French Senegalese and Moroccan troops were notorious for committing rape. Police records of Stuttgart show that 1,198 German women were raped by French troops during the French occupation. Dr. Karl Hartenstein, prelate of the Evangelical church in the city, estimated a higher number of 5,000 rape victims in Stuttgart. In the town of Vaihingen, with a population of 12,000, 500 cases of rape were reported. So it went in other German cities and towns occupied by French troops.[13]
Charles Lindbergh was told by an Army officer that there were over 6,000 cases of rape reported in Stuttgart and that the Germans were crying for the Americans to come in and replace the French. Lindbergh writes:
I had been told that in French-occupied territory it was required that a list of the occupants of every building, together with their ages, be posted outside, on the door, and that both the Senegalese and the French soldiers, drunk at night, would go from door to door until they found girls’ names listed of any age they wished to rape. As we drove through Stuttgart we saw that each main door of the habitable buildings contained such a list—white sheets of paper tacked onto the panel—a column of names, a column of birth dates. And most of the women of Stuttgart show in their faces that they have gone through hell.”[14]
In Germany as a whole it is estimated that approximately 2 million German women were raped in the aftermath of the Second World War. This represents more rapes against a defeated enemy than any other war in history.[15]
The arrival of the Red Army in Austria was also accompanied by sexual violence on a large scale. Stalin informed his troops that Austrians had been the first victims of German aggression, and he stipulated that Soviet troops were to behave correctly toward Austrians. However, the Soviet NKVD in Austria admitted that “there have been cases of excesses by individual members of units of the Red Army against the local population.” In the Steiermark, for example, thousands of women sought medical help after being raped by Soviet soldiers. In the city of Graz more than 600 cases of rape were reported to police—a number which is probably only a fraction of the total sexual assaults that occurred in the city.[16] In Vienna 87,000 women were reported by doctors and clinics to have been raped.[17]
While a large percentage of American troops deported themselves properly, the record of American troops as a whole in regard to German women is hardly exemplary. Rape charges in the U.S. Army rose to 402 in March and 501 in April 1945, as a result of slackening military resistance.[18] Altogether 487 American soldiers in Germany were tried for rapes allegedly committed in March and April 1945.[19]
One reason there were fewer reports of rape by American soldiers is that desperately hungry German women would have consensual sex in exchange for food or cigarettes. Despite Eisenhower’s edict against fraternization with Germans, no orders from above could slow the American soldier’s desire to have sex with German women. American newswoman Freda Utley states,
Neither army regulations nor the propaganda of hatred in the American press could prevent American soldiers from liking and associating with German women, who although they were driven by hunger to become prostitutes, preserved a certain innate decency.”[20]
American soldiers would offer a basket of food or other presents in order to have sex with the unconditionally surrendered women of Germany. The Christian Century reported on December 5, 1945:
The American provost marshal, Lt. Colonel Gerald F. Beane, said that rape represents no problem to the military police because ‘a bit of food, a bar of chocolate, or a bar of soap seems to make rape unnecessary.’ Think that over if you want to understand what the situation is in Germany.”[21]
After a visit to the American zone, Dr. George N. Schuster, President of Hunter College, stated:
You have said it all when you say that Europe is now a place where woman has lost her perennial fight for decency because the indecent alone live. Except for those who can establish contacts with members of the armed forces, Germans can get nothing from soap to shoes.”[22]
L.F. Filewood stated in the October 5, 1945, issue of the Weekly Review in London:
Young girls, unattached, wander about and freely offer themselves, for food or bed…Very simply they have one thing left to sell, and they sell it…As a way of dying it may be worse than starvation, but it will put off dying for months—or even years.”[23]
Young women who had elderly relatives, children or younger siblings were easily coerced. Slave labor by day, sex slave at night. It was ultimately better than being in an Allied-run concentration camp known as History’s Most Terrifying Peace.
German women, many with children to feed, were often forced to become slaves to Allied soldiers in order to survive. A British soldier acknowledged:
I felt a bit sick at times about the power I had over the girl. If I gave her a three-penny bar of chocolate she nearly went crazy. She was just like my slave. She darned my socks and mended things for me. There was no question of marriage. She knew that was not possible.”[24]
The Germans tried to be careful in their dealings with the people…We were told that if a citizen attended strictly to business and took no political or underground action against the occupying army, he was treated with correctness.”[25]
Neither criminalizing or burning history will work. There are simply too many contradictions regarding the WWII narrative. Germany’s War: The Origins, Aftermath & Atrocities of WWII

  1. Hey Jeffrey;

    The huge monument to the Red Army in Berlin is called "The tomb of the unknown rapist" by the people in Berlin. That is what the older ones called it while I was stationed there in the 1980's

  2. I had a good friend who was the curator of a museum in Huntsville, AL back in the 90's. He interviewed a German veteran (who I later got to meet). The interview took about two weeks and my friend ended up with six 90 minute cassette tapes. The mans story was incredible. He joined the army before the war and was captured about ten days after D-Day. Towards the end of the interview the veteran is telling a story of a Christmas party with his surviving relatives in 1965 (one brother KIA on the eastern front and another missing, both parents killed in a bombing raid two weeks before the war ends). Anyway it is the vet, his wife, two brothers, and two sisters and they are having a toast to surviving the war and twenty years past. One of the sisters breaks down and begins to weep inconsolably. She tells for the fist time that the night the Russians made it to her neighborhood on the outskirts of Berlin that she was raped 26 times in one night. She had never told a soul.

  3. The Russkies were absolute animals, no question. You can't defend it, but whatever little they'd had before the war was gone - home, family, friends, town - you name it. The German women were the wives, mothers, sisters, girl friends, daughters they'd lost

    This was their revenge. If they'd ever had any moral teaching, the war killed it. The accepted version is the Krauts lost because there were so many Russians, but, if you look at casualties, the Russians' losses were anywhere between twice and four times as many as the Germans - Barbarossa, Blue, Citadel, Bagration. The surviving Russians just didn't give a damn any more

    1. " The accepted version is the Krauts lost because there were so many Russians, but, if you look at casualties, the Russians' losses were anywhere between twice and four times as many as the Germans"

      Yes, the Russian loses were enormous. Just after WW2 and all through the "Cold War" Russian loses were kept secret. The Soviets lied about their loses for years and years. It was estimated that the Russians lost a million men trying to take Berlin. A combination of things licked the Jerries. I would say the greatest single contributor to their defeat was the cracking of the Enigma Code and their almost complete confidence that the code was too complex to be broken.

  4. This was sobering. I only ever read one account detailing the Sov's vs. Germans treatement of civilians. The story was a small village in Russia that traded hands a few times. Every time the Sov's took the Russian village, they pillaged and raped their way through it. When the Germans took it, they worked on defenses and were if not kind, at least didn't pillage and rape.

    My friend's dad was an 8th Army soldier at the end of the war. He was on occupation for 2 years after the end. He had a "girlfriend" that was German. I understand now how and why that happened. What a horrible mess.

      US 8th Army was in the Southern Philippines under MacArthur.

  5. My mother met my father there while he was in the army and emigrated in 1948. This story makes me wonder what she had to endure. Neither my mother nor her parents ever talked about the war to me. I can see why they never did. That is something one does not want to remember.

    1. My dad was in the 1st Panzer Div. on the eastern front during WWII. He was blessed to survive 3.5 years and eventually....by the grace of God....be captured by Patton's 3rd Army instead of the Russians. He was well treated (all things considered) especially because he spoke pretty good English. He was out after 6 months. My uncle Fritz was captured by the Soviets and was put to many years of slave labor dismantling factories in occupied Germany or other eastern European countries and shipping them back and reassembling them in Russia, often east of the Urals. He did not return to Germany until 1954 I think.

      My mom lived in what was then German occupied Poland near Sczecin (sp?). She and her mother fled the advancing Red Army, sometimes being just a few kilometers ahead of them. They would often crowd onto rail cattle cars in the freezing winter. Sometimes when they exited there would be frozen dead babies left behind. My mom was 15 then and very attractive. They knew what lay ahead for her if they did not make it far enough west fast enough. Fortunately they did and she went to a family farm in a very small village near Hannover. Being so out of sight she was lucky to never face any abuse at the hands of the occupying Brits or American forces. Or, maybe she just never told us about it to maintain her dignity.

      They met in Hamburg in the early 50s when my dad was getting two PhDs (math & chemistry). My dad had admired the US since before the war and wanted to emigrate. He was on the eternal list until 1957 when the Soviets launched Sputnik and the space race required more science and engineering education in the USA. He quickly moved up to the top of the list and became a professor at Kalamazoo College in Michigan late that year.

      Mom & Dad were the most patriotic Americans I have ever known. My brother and I also served long stints in the Air Force and Navy to pay back that good fortune of having been raised in the USA.

    2. That is an interesting story Anon. Have you got any cool wartime photos?

      Delete
  6. Hey Jeffery. There are very few photos that we have from his time in the Wehrmacht and most of those were from early on in training. He was the weapon sighting guy on an 88mm anti-air flak gun crew that was part of the 299th Anti-Air Battalion (H.Flakart.Abt. 299). Later they also used that 88mm (famous as one of the best multi-purpose artillery weapons of all time) in an anti-tank role too. Lots of the soldiers destroyed their own before capture or surrender. Many were confiscated by the occupation forces in order to search for any evidence of war crimes, etc. There are a few of him and his buds that he brought home on one sick leave for a bit. The story of how they wound up surrendering to the 3rd Army was interesting. Basically the surrendered to some American advance forces in Hungary. Those troops disarmed them and told them that where they were was going to be Soviet occupied territory soon, and if they did not want to surrender to the Russians, they better head west until they ran into the US POW coordination elements. They were then left free to walk west. They ran into additional US forces as they went, including a unit of black American soldiers, and they all just kept telling them to keep going west. Finally they were directed to the 3rd Army elements that we establishing POW camps. As you may know if you have read much about Patton, he was convinced the US, Britain, and France would be back at war against the Soviet Union within months or a year of VE day. He had high regard for German soldiers and much of their officer corps and knew that even though now defeated, they would be a very valuable asset in the coming war for Europe vs. the USSR. So Patton ordered his soldiers to treat their POWs decently, no abuse, etc. And that was exactly what my dad experienced. Other German POWs held by other US, British of French forces were often treated much more harshly.

  7. Thanks for sharing. I re-enact WW2. One of my friends owns a "real" German 88 FLAK gun. Here is some footage of me and some of my friends crewing the weapon during the annual D-Day event at Conneaut, OH. I'd be interested in seeing scans of any wartime images your daddy may have left you. The story you described was not usual with German POWs. I spoke with a Tiger commander several years ago and he described almost the exact scenario (Patton and all).

  8. With all the history being shared, remember Eisenhower changing the German POWs designation to "Disarmed Enemy Fores." Setting up for the brutal murders and rapes to follow.
    Eisenhower's Holocaust the Murder of 1.7 million German POW's between 1945 and 1947
    remember Eisenhower said I not only hate the Nazis i hate the Germans as a Race. He Enacted this the Morgenthau plan this plan was approve by the US government especially the Treasurer to eradicate 25 % of the German People.

  9. In general reference to Irish's subject here, I recently DVR'ed a very interesting show on NatGeo channel called "After Hitler". It is a 2 part/2 hour documentary about the situation in Europe in the first few years after VE day. Almost all of it is original video from the time. It documents the revenge killings and rape that were widespread from a variety of "sides" or groups as they made their way "home" or to whatever was left of it, etc. You can find it here:
