An Austrian, inflamed with hatred, bigotry and ill corroded complex, dragging the world into one of the most devastating moments of humanity, full of blood and fire and pain. His name Adolf Hitler who was born in Braunau am Inn, Austria-Hungary, April 20, 1889, he was the president and chancellor of Germany between 1933 and 1945. Led to power National Socialist German Workers Party or Nazi Party, and led a totalitarian regime during the period known as the Third Reich. In addition, he was the one who directed Germany during World War II, initiated by him with the main purpose to meet its expansion plans in Europe.
Adolf Hitler saw in Masonry a danger, his animosity towards Freemasonry could have grounds, as Freemasons were precisely those who overthrew him, remember to US presidents, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Harry S. Truman, and for the British part was Winston Churchill all Freemasons who fought him to beat him.
In Hitler’s rise to power, the ten Grand Lodges of Germany were dissolved. Many prominent members of the Order and dignitaries were sent to concentration camps. The Gestapo seized the membership list of the Grand Lodges and looted their libraries and collections of Masonic objects. Much of this loot was then exhibited an anti-Masonic Exhibition opened in 1937 by Dr. Joseph M. Goebbels in Munich.
The persecution was carried over into Austria when the country was captured by the Nazis. The Masters of the various Vienna lodges were immediately confined in the most notorious concentration camps, including the horrible living hell at Dachau in Bavaria. The same procedure was repeated when Hitler took over Czechoslovakia, then Poland. Immediately after the conquest of Holland and Belgium, the Nazis ordered the dissolution of the lodges in those nations
Hitler hate Freemasonry clearly is documented in 1931, when officials of the Nazi party were given a charter and guide instruction in which he declared: “The natural hostility that farmers should have against the Jews, and Masonry” . Likewise, the Official Handbook for schooling the Hitler Youth, attacked freemasons, marxists, and Christian churches for their “mistaken teaching of the equality of all men.” on April 7, 1933, Hermann Goering, who once considered to be a mason He met von Heeringen Grandmaster of the Grand Lodge of Germany, saying there was no place of Freemasonry in Nazi Germany.
However, more of a mason was crossed into the path of Hitler. One was Sir Winston Churchill, the two used “like” ways to gain power. The tenacity and oratory helped them to achieve their ends. They had one of those qualities; the other, the learned: They were not great speakers, but Churchill spent 14 hours in the mirror preparing speeches and Hitler cut his teeth on the street and in breweries where going to see comedians to learn, especially the timing and pace at speeches.
Both were authoritarian, but what made one bloody dictator and the other not, were features of his temperament. Churchill was very hard, but not cruel. And he had a great sense of humor and ability to laugh at himself, which is hard to imagine Hitler. A world separated them, not only for his political ideas, but also for its social origins: Hitler was the son of an Austrian customs, while Churchill, a descendant of Grand Duke of Marlborough, belonged to the great English aristocracy.
But Hitler and Churchill also had some elements in common: both were politicians with a great instinct for survival, both were the best orators of his time, both fought in World War II, the two became the latest European statesmen not had no compunction in intervening directly in making strategic and tactical decisions of war and … they were both painters.
Winston Churchill was knighted after World War 2 and buried in Westminster Abbey, perhaps the highest tribute that could be paid to him, while Adolf Hitler has been accorded the status of perhaps the most evil politician in human history.
WINSTON CHURCHILL in 1940
“When I look around to see how we can win the war I see that there is only one sure path. We have no Continental army which can defeat the German military power.. Should [Hitler].. not try invasion [of Britain].. there is one thing that will bring him back and bring him down, and that is an absolutely devastating, exterminating attack by very heavy bombers from this country upon the Nazi homeland. We must be able to overwhelm them by this means, without which I do not see a way through. We cannot accept any aim lower than air mastery. When can it be obtained?” [Extract from Winston S Churchill ‘The Second World War’ (Volume 2 Their Finest Hour Appendix A), Memo from Prime Minister to Minister of Aircraft Production, 8.July 1940].
ADOLF HITLER in 1940
Britain and France declared war on Germany, not the other way around. Hitler wanted peace with Britain, as the German generals admitted (Basil Liddell Hart, The Other Side of the Hill 1948, Pan Books 1983) with regard to the so-called Halt Order at Dunkirk (24 May 1940), where Hitler had the opportunity to capture the entire British Army, but chose not to. Liddell Hart, one of Britain,s most respected military historians, quotes the German General von Blumentritt with regard to this Halt Order:
“He (Hitler) then astonished us by speaking with admiration of the British Empire, of the necessity for its existence, and of the civilization that Britain had brought into the world. He remarked, with a shrug of the shoulders, that the creation of its Empire had been achieved by means that were often harsh, but where there is planing, there are shavings flying,. He compared the British Empire with the Catholic Church saying they were both essential elements of stability in the world. He said that all he wanted from Britain was that she should acknowledge Germany,s position on the Continent. The return of Germany,s colonies would be desirable but not essential, and he would even offer to support Britain with troops if she should be involved in difficulties anywhere..”
Another mason who crossed Hitler was Franklin Delano Roosevelt, born on January 30, 1882 who was a politician, diplomat and lawyer US, which reached to act as the thirty-second president of the United States and has been the only one to win four elections presidential in this nation, received a bankrupt nation and exalted to the position of economic and military power. The entry of the US into World War II dealt the fatal blow to Hitler. In his speech of December 11, 1941 to the Reichstag, Hitler had already lashed out at the US president, who defined it as “the rich boy and a Freemason.” On April 14, 1939, President Franklin D. Roosevelt took the lead in directing an unusual letter to Hitler and Mussolini, in which, after finding “rumors that we hope are unfounded, according to which new attacks are made against other nations independent “asked bluntly both statesmen:
“Are you willing to promise that his armies did not attack the territories or possessions of the nations mentioned?”
Then cited a list of thirty-one countries, and ended by expressing the hope that the fulfillment of such a promise could secure at least half a century of peace, saying that “the United States, in which case they would be willing to participate in negotiations to alleviate the world from the burden of armaments. ”
As noted by Bishop Giovanetti (Le Vatican et la Paz), addressing only the Axis powers, President Roosevelt seemed to put a priori in the dock. That unfortunate letter, rather than a fumble and a violation of diplomatic usage, was rude and provocative.
Benito Mussolini was in full conference with Goering and Ciano in Rome when he delivered the letter, and that was when Mussolini gave his famous prediction: “Effects of progressive paralysis …” echoing Goering: “Principles of mental illness” (Conde Ciano. Memoirs)
Hitler’s reaction was immediate. Von Ribbentrop ordered that their services will make the following questions to each of the countries mentioned by Roosevelt:
1 – Did you have the impression that Germany threatened them?
2 – They had asked Roosevelt to serve their spokesperson?
Naturally these questions were not made to Poland, France and Britain, who were in the struggle with Reich about Dantzig. The 28 countries surveyed responded with a double negative.
Before Deputies and members of the Reichstag, Hitler read, one by one, the answers of the respondents states, ie Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Norway, Switzerland, Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania, Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary, Yugoslavia, Turkey, Portugal, Ireland, Iran, Liberia, Ecuador, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Peru, Panama, Guatemala, Venezuela, and Cuba Urugua. It was a speech of rare eloquence, frequently interrupted by torrents of applause and laughter from the audience. Hitler said:
“I solemnly declare that the allegations of German attack against American territories are but deceptions and gross lies, not to mention that such arguments can not be more out of the imagination of a madman.”
In a speech to the Reichstag, Hitler said:
“Mr. Roosevelt sought to be given assurances that the German armed forces will not attack, and especially not invade the territories or possessions of the following independent nacionnes: Finland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Netherlands Belgium, Britain, Ireland, France, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, Leichtenstein, Luxembourg, Poland, Hungary, Romania, Yugoslavia, Russia, Bulgaria, Turkey, Iraq, Arabia, Syria, Palestine, Egipo, and Iran ”
I have taken the trouble to check that those mentioned states respond, first of all, if they feel threatened, and second, what is most important, if the research done by the American president was directed to us under suggestion or consent. Their responses were negative in both cases, and in some cases decisively.
I have to make the following statement: The German government is peser all, prepared to give each of those States mentioned a warranty. Given the condition that they ask for a guarantee from Germany, will be completely reciprocal and corresponding viable proposals. As the number of states included in the list of Mr Roosevelt, this question can be considered as established from the beginning, assuming that we’re allied with them or at least united by common bonds of friendship. As for the duration of the agreements, Germany is prepared to come to terms with each individual State in accordance with the wishes of that State. But I would not miss this chance, especially without giving the President of the United States a guarantee, considering that these territories should be for him, because of fear of the United States itself and also from other states in America. I hereby solemnly declare that all afirmacines, which have circulated freely about a German invasion or attack on American soil, are downright frauds and lies. Besides, the fact that such claims are true as mlitares possibilities could only be the product of the sickest imagination. In the wake of England today in the press and officially support holding the idea that Germany should be opposed in all circumstances; and it is confirmed that the bypass family policy, the basis for the naval treaty has been removed. I therefore have resulted send a communication to this effect to the British Government. This is for us a matter of practical importance materials, so I hope to avoid an arms race with England, and instead see it as an act of self-respect. If the British government wanted to enter again into negotiations with Germany on this issue, no one would be happier than me to be able to still get a clear and correct understanding.
“On the other hand, I know my people, and I trust them. ”
Far from getting the results that the letter Roosevelt hoped, this is pressured by Great Britain and France form a democratic bloc against Germany, which managed to Hitler’s speech was cohesive with the Axis powers and nations sympathetic with German politics.
On June 22, 1941, yet subdue England, three million German troops attacked the Soviet Union, breaking the non-aggression pact Hitler had concluded with Stalin two years earlier. This invasion, called Operation Barbarossa, whose duration was estimated to be a few months, seized huge amounts of territory, including the Baltic states, Belarus, and Ukraine. Also encircled and destroyed many Soviet forces. But the Germans due to the delay of four months of operations in Greece and Yugoslavia, they failed to reach Moscow in December 1941, when it was also influenced by the early arrival of the Russian winter with temperatures down to -50 ° C (hardest in 50 years), all linked to the fierce Soviet resistance, Siberian troops reinforced the then General Zhukov specially adapted to extreme conditions. The invasion had failed quick triumph Hitler wanted.
Hitler signed the declaration of war against the United States on December 11, 1941, four days after the Empire of Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, many revisionist historians consider this step a serious tactical and political error, as well achieved in against a coalition that included the world, industrial and financial world (the United States) great (the British Empire) and the world (the Soviet Union) largest army larger empire.
In late 1942, German forces were defeated in the Second Battle of El Alamein, thwarting Hitler’s plans to seize the Suez Canal and the Middle East. In February 1943, the titanic battle of Stalingrad ended with the encirclement and destruction of the German 6th Army. Soon after came the Battle of Kursk (Soviet 1,300,000, 3,600 tanks, 20,000 artillery pieces and 2,400 aircraft, compared to 900,000 Germans, 2,700 tanks, 2,000 aircraft) giant.
From Stalingrad, Hitler’s military plan became increasingly erratic, the Russians began advancing forcing the withdrawal of German forces exhausted and domestic economic situation in Germany deteriorated. After the Allied invasion of Italy (Operation Husky) in 1943, Hitler’s ally, Mussolini was deposed by Pietro Badoglio, who surrendered to the Allies. Throughout 1943 and 1944, the Soviet Union steadily forced Hitler’s armies into retreat along the Eastern Front. On June 6, 1944, Allied armies landed in western northern France in what was the largest amphibious operation ever conducted, Operation Overlord. In the German army, the more realistic they knew that defeat was inevitable, and some officers plotted a plan to overthrow Hitler from power. In July 1944, one of them, former artillery observation officer Marshal Erwin Rommel, Claus von Stauffenberg placed a planted bomb in one of Hitler’s headquarters, the Wolfsschanze (Wolf’s Lair) at Rastenburg but Hitler get away with this attempt is one of the attacks against Hitler who was closest to succeed. He ordered savage reprisals, and relentless persecution by the SS, which resulted in the execution of over 4,900 people, sometimes by starvation in solitary confinement, followed by slow strangulation. The main resistance movement was destroyed, although smaller isolated groups continued to operate. The list of characters that fell is extensive and can quote Wilhelm Canaris, Erwin Rommel and Friedrich Fromm, and others. The attempt on Hitler on July 20, 1944 left him slowly progressive sequelae were affecting his reasoning, development and control of the situation.
Hitler also experienced a decline in health. His left hand trembled; biographer Ian Kershaw and others believe it may have suffered from Parkinson’s disease. It has also been suspected by some of the symptoms, which may have suffered from syphilis, although evidence for this is minimal. In the last days of the war, Hitler married his mistress Eva Braun, in his underground bunker in the ruins of Berlin, as the city was invaded by the Red Army of the Soviet Union and his army finally defeated. After marriage, Hitler and Braun committed suicide and their bodies were cremated.
Indeed, Hitler always hated Freemasonry. Like Stalin, Mussolini, Franco, and generally intolerant, bigoted and disturbed. Either way it makes sense that the fanatics, intolerant and disturbed those who want the most evil, hate the antidote to fanaticism, intolerance and irrationality representing Freemasonry.
