Hitler protected Jewish WW1 veteran

http://www.n-tv.de/panorama/Hitler-schuetzte-einen-Juden-article6652691.html

Hitler schützte einen Juden


Als sie eine Ausstellung vorbereitet, entdeckt eine Historikerin einen Brief, der aufmerksam macht: Heinrich Himmler weist darin im August 1940 die Behörden an, den Juden Ernst Hess "in jeder Hinsicht unbehelligt" zu lassen. Der Befehl kommt direkt von Adolf Hitler.



Ernst Hess war einer von zwei Juden, von denen bekannt ist, dass sie zeitweilig unter dem Schutz Adolf Hitlers standen.

Adolf Hitler soll sich persönlich für einen jüdischen Juristen eingesetzt und ihn zeitweise vor der Verfolgung geschützt haben. Nach einem Bericht der in Berlin erscheinenden englischsprachigen Zeitung "Jewish Voice from Germany" (Jüdische Stimme aus Deutschland) blieb der Düsseldorfer Amtsrichter Ernst Hess, der zeitweise Hitlers Kompaniechef im Ersten Weltkrieg gewesen war, auf Intervention des Diktators bis 1941 weitgehend unbehelligt. Hess (1890-1983) überlebte das Nazi-Reich als Zwangsarbeiter in einem Konzentrationslager in Bayern. Später wurde er Bahn-Präsident in Frankfurt/Main.


Ein Brief des "Reichsführers SS" Heinrich Himmler vom August 1940 wies die Behörden an, dass Hess, "entsprechend dem Wunsch des Führers ... in jeder Hinsicht unbehelligt gelassen wird". Die Historikerin Susanne Mauss hatte das Dokument bei der Vorbereitung einer Ausstellung im vergangenen Jahr im Landesarchiv Nordrhein-Westfalen entdeckt.
Mit dem Bericht werde deutlich, dass Hitlers willige Helfer die Befehle des "Führers" bedingungslos erfüllten - egal, ob als Retter oder Massenmörder, wie der Herausgeber der Zeitung, Rafael Seligmann, sagte. Bisher war nur ein weiterer Fall bekannt, nach dem Hitler sich für einen Juden eingesetzt hatte. So soll der Linzer Arzt seiner Mutter, Eduard Bloch, bis zu seiner Emigration 1940 unter dem Schutz des "Führers" gestanden haben.
Hess bekam einen neuen Pass
Hess war im Zuge der "Arisierung" als Richter abgesetzt worden. Wie die Historikerin Mauss berichtet, zog er daraufhin mit seiner Familie nach Bozen in Südtirol. Nach dem jetzt bekannt gewordenen Brief Himmlers, den die Zeitung in ihrer Juli-Ausgabe nachdruckt, hatte Hess Kontakt zu Hitler über einen gemeinsamen Kriegskameraden gesucht. Der Hauptmann Fritz Wiedemann war von 1934 bis 1939 Adjutant Hitlers. In dem Brief bat der zum Protestantismus konvertierte Hess, dass er nach den Nürnberger Rassegesetzen als "Halbjude" gelte und demzufolge nicht "als Jude" gebrandmarkt werden sollte.
...Zwar lehnte Hitler diese Bitte ab, wies aber über Himmler die Behörden an, Hess die Versorgungsbezüge nach Italien zu überweisen. Hess erhielt auch einen neuen Pass, dem der für Juden zwingende Zwischenname "Israel" fehlte. Somit war er äußerlich nicht mehr als Jude erkennbar. Auch der Chef der Reichskanzlei, Hans Heinrich Lammers, und der deutsche Generalkonsul in Italien, Otto Bene, schalteten sich für Hess ein.
1941 zog Hitler seinen Schutz zurück
Nach dem Hitler-Mussolini-Pakt über die "Italianisierung" Südtirols musste die Familie Hess 1939 nach Deutschland zurückkehren und ließ sich im bayerischen Dorf Unterwössen nieder. 1941 erhielt Hess die Nachricht, dass er nicht mehr unter Hitlers Schutz stehe.
Hess wurde in das Konzentrationslager Milbertshofen bei München gebracht. Nach Angaben der Historikerin Mauss rettete ihn die "Mischehe" mit seiner nichtjüdischen Frau Margarethe vor der Deportation. Tochter Ursula wurde als Zwangsarbeiterin in einer Elektrofirma eingesetzt. Doch Hess' Mutter Elisabeth und die Schwester Berta wurden auf Anweisung von Adolf Eichmann deportiert. Berta Hess wurde in Auschwitz ermordet, der Mutter gelang in den letzten Kriegswochen die Flucht aus Theresienstadt in die Schweiz.

Hugo Gutmann (1880–1962) was a German-Jewish veteran of WWI who is famously known as Hitler's superior officer during the war, as well as the man responsible for recommending Hitler for the award of the Iron Cross.

Anti-Israel German activist lied about IDF service


BERLIN – A German poet and anti-Israel activist has acknowledged that she fabricated her supposed service in the IDF during the First Lebanon war.

“I said I was in the IDF,” but “it was a lie,” Irena Wachendorff, 51, told The Jerusalem Post, in a telephone interview on Friday. She has termed strong pro- Israel activists “the neo-Nazi troop among the Jews,” and expressed support for Hamas in the Gaza Strip.
As an 18-year-old, she said, she left Germany for Israel and wanted to serve in the army, adding that she was in Israel when the IDF went into Lebanon to stop cross-border terrorist attacks, in a preliminary to the First Lebanon War, and departed Israel after six weeks. Asked why she lied, she said she was “ashamed” of her failure. Wachendorff further claims that her father is Jewish and fled to England in 1936, and her mother survived Auschwitz.The Post and Jennifer Pyka, a dogged investigative journalist in Munich, obtained evidence that contradicted Wachendorff’s alleged Jewish identity.
According to Pyka’s investigative essay, Wachendorff’s father, Raymund, served in the German Army during the Third Reich and her mother, Barbara, denies being incarcerated in Auschwitz.
Wachendorff admitted to the Post on Friday that her father was an officer in the Wehrmacht. She asserted on Facebook that her father served as an “adviser to a rabbi and a tzadik.” She could offer no proof that the former army officer performed advisory work for rabbis.
Wachendorff wrote on Facebook that her mother was “four months in Auschwitz” and has a “tattooed number on her arm.”
Wachendorff, however, told the Post that she could not recall the name of the extermination camp where her mother was imprisoned and that there is “something” on her mother’s arm, but she cannot identify whether it is a number. After Friday’s Post interview, Wachendorff closed her Facebook account on Saturday.
In a telephone interview on Saturday, Pyka told the Post that she smelled a fraudulent history almost two years ago and unraveled a string of deceptions and contradiction in Wachendorff’s Facebook assertions. In a long essay that appeared late last month on the German website Die Achse des Guten (The Axis of Good), Pyka uncovered a series of alleged half-truths and lies. Spiegel Online and the cultural website Perlentaucher cited Pyka’s expose as one of the top blog entries of the week.
Wachendorff repeatedly told the Post, “I am Jewish. I am member of a liberal Jewish community and I am not anti- Semitic.” According to Pyka’s research, there is no documentation supporting Wachendorff’s assertions that she is Jewish or a member of a German Jewish community.
Pyka sharply criticized Wachendorff for having traded on the tragedy of the Holocaust for personal and commercial gain. It is “perverse and brazen that Wachendorff presents herself as a Jew and the daughter of Holocaust survivors and engages in educational work in schools about anti-Semitism and Jewish life in the Third Reich,” she said.“Six million dead Jews serve her own publicity and at the same time she undertakes a perfidious victim-perpetrator inversion to damage Israel and all Jews,” the journalist said. Pyka summed up the growing scandal: “The entire thing is a Grusical [comic horror musical] that is made in Germany and only those who are themselves fake Jews or anti- Semites can stage and applaud the Grusical.” Ruprecht Polenz, a senior deputy in the Bundestag, vehemently defends the anti- Israel activist’s work.Polenz, the head of the Bundestag’s Foreign Affairs Committee, welcomed a group of Iranian lawmakers to Berlin last year. He has served as Wachendorff’s main advocate. In an email to the Post, he declined to provide specific comments on the string of alleged lies from Wachendorff. In addition to being under fire for defending Wachendorff, critics accuse the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) deputy of allowing his Facebook site to be turned into a magnet for jihadists, raging anti-Semites, haters of Israel and extremist leftists. In a number of entries examined by the Post, which appeared on Polenz’s Facebook, writers posted “that rich, industrial Jews planned the genocide on the Jewish people in order to create Israel.” In another entry, Darwisch Salman Khorassani wrote that if “USREAL [Israel and the US] attack, I will register as a suicide bomber. Not from Islamic motives but from pure humanistic motives.”

van Jungs, father and son



Mark van Jung was one of the richest men in estonia between the wars , owner of several wool and flax mills- factories in Sindi , Pärnu and elsewhere which were of course nationalized in 1940. As bourgeois element, family were listed for deportation by the soviets in 1941. For unknown reason they were not, and remained in Tallinn at the time the germans took the city. Van Jung was soon arrested by the nazis, but unlike other jews that all were shot , he was released after lengthy interrogation, where he maintained, that his father was dutch and mother of karaim descent. - More likely, IMHO man had still ressourses to bribe or/and blackmail SD personal - locals, to believe that. Its unclear, what he did and if he provided services to the nazis. however his wife, Elsa - nee Feitelberg didn't survive. By estonian sources, she was advised by her husband to give herself up and perished in nov. 1941. Remarkably, nkvd (kgb)files indicate, that Van Jung was their operative before and after the war. He was not prosecuted after the war and lived quite comfortably. he died in late 50_is.
Mark van Jung - likely, before the war


Viktor van Jung, before the war


Viktor in his 70_is

Viktor was mobilized in Red army and was taken by germans as POW in  Saaremaa in the nov. 1944.
he didn't returned to the soviets after the war but went to americans and was employed by CIA.
