From February 13 to 15, 1945, American and British bombers unleashed a devastating firestorm on the beautiful city of Dresden. There were no military targets, and the city was overflowing with German refugees fleeing westwards from the invading Red Army. The commanders of the Allied Forces knew full well that the city was full of women, children, the old, the injured and refugees, in other words, all civilians. Architecturally and aesthetically, this had been one of the most magnificent cities in Germany. The Allies laid it flat and set it on fire.
The authorities today in Germany (Dresden mayor and other officialdom) do everything they can to downplay the destruction of this beautiful city 72 years ago. Not only do they screech “neo-Nazi” about those who dare to commemorate the German victims, the authorities have reduced the number of dead to a ridiculously low “up to 25,000”, easily an order of magnitude lower than the real figure. The mayor has gone on record as saying that Dresden was not innocent, thereby he justifies the Allied bombing of the German city.
Is this behaviour normal? Is the mayor mentally ill? Or does it reflect the behaviour of a puppet in an occupied country!
Alfred Schaefer observed this about an “official” event in Dresden on 11 February 2017:
We listened to an official commemoration at one of the big grave yards, and this is what they told us there: The day after the bombing of Dresden on February 13, 1945, the last of the jews were deported from Dresden to be exterminated. They said that without turning red in the face, without twitching. The holocausted Germans from Dresden are accused of having nothing better to do than round up the last jews and deport them, the day after they had their own city burnt and destroyed. Amazing audacity.
