Terrible RevengeThe ethnic cleansing of the East-European Germans
by Alfred-Maurice de Zayas
1994, St. Martin’s Press, 149 pages

The most grievous violation of the right based on historical evolution and of any human right in general is to deprive populations of their right to occupy the country where they live by compelling them to settle elsewhere. …the victorious powers decided at the end of WWII to impose this fate on hundreds of thousands of human beings … in a most cruel manner. — Albert Schweitzer, ca.

Book Review: Other Losses (1991)

The shocking truth behind the mass deaths of disarmed German soldiers and civilians under General Eisenhower’s command
By James Bacque
Reviewed by Brian R. Wright

Reviewer’s note: I first became interested in this subject by some revisionist history in connection with WW2 where one of the respondents pointed to a column in [“Eisenhower’s Holocaust – His Slaughter of 1.7 Million Germans” (6-22-2008)] describing the systematic murdering by policy, —though conducted at the instigation of United States General Dwight David Eisenhower, head of SHAEF,[1]—of disarmed German soldiers, not to mention civilians… that persisted months after the end of the war.

“…it is hard to escape the conclusion that Dwight Eisenhower was a war criminal of epic proportions. His (DEF) policy killed more Germans in peace than were killed in the European Theater.”

“For years we have blamed the 1.7 million missing German POW’s on the Russians. Until now, no one dug too deeply … Witnesses and survivors have been interviewed by the author; one Allied officer compared the American camps to Buchenwald.”
— Canadian news reporter, Peter Worthington, of the
Ottawa Sun, from his column on September 12,1989. [Worthington had read the Canadian release of Other Losses, 1989.]

Yes, as disturbing as the BIG facts are, they’re undeniable. Mr. Bacque’s book is a thoroughgoing account of Eisenhower’s holocaust[2], which documents his directive of ‘confinement, torture, and death by bureaucracy’ of hundreds of thousands—the author’s own numbers are: at least 900,000 documented, with very likely a million more murdered in the camps, uncounted—helpless individuals, authorized by a sadistic hater of all things German. It’s an account of life’s necessities deliberately not supplied—thru contrived bungling, devious wording of policy, and pathetic acquiescence of subordinates—over a period of months from spring 1945 into winter 1946.
