Whatever Hitler has stated regarding the Jewish People, and whatever Himmler, Heydrich, Eichmann or Hoess did in furtherance of what der Fuhrer demanded, The Jews paid with their lives. Today, apologists and deniers all seek to absolve Hitler of his responsibility in The Holocaust. They seek to see Hitler abdicated from all that he promulgated in favour of some non-specific role amidst the maelstrom. What this would achieve, as opposed to what is sought, would be to damn all those Allied Soldiers who fought against him to a seemingly pointless end.
That too will be said of the many German soldiers, for whom God and Country was a sole byeword of their participation in the conflict. Wars are fought on the pretext that one side or the other has God on their side. One or other is justifiably correct in its approach to war. One is even morally obliged to take up the gauntlet and fight for what is considered the rights and wrongs of some injustice or slight.
All Are Implicated.
Hitler’s open aggression, September 1st. 1939 against Poland was an act of War. Britain and France have every moral right and obligation to stand alongside their treaty partners and fight the good fight. Both responded with a Declaration of intent 3rd. September 1939. That Poland was practically abandoned to its fate, thereafter, is an accusation from within History of an assistance which was late coming and all events and destructions were borne out of that failing.
That Hitler now had open access to some 3,000,000 more Jews gave him all the leverage he required to come up with a term that his minions would deliver upon: die Endlosung der Judenfrage, The Final Solution of The Jewish Question was the term and the end result was the Destruction of 6,000,000 Jewish People in The Holocaust. The World must never be allowed to forget that!
