The Rock Of Poland (Polska) the repeated attempts to lobotomize Polish society

On August 22, 1939, a few days before the official start of World War II, Hitler authorized his commanders, with these infamous words, to kill "without pity or mercy, all men, women, and children of Polish descent or language. Only in this way can we obtain the living space [lebensraum] we need".

The assault on Polish National identity has been truly staggering over the centuries. First let us look at Poland leading up to and through World War II.

The Rock Of Poland (Polska) the repeated attempts to lobotomize Polish society

April 10, 2010 The leadership of Poland was killed in a plane crash to visit the first memorial that Russians participated in of the murder of the surviving leadership of Poland by Stalin's NKVD known as the Katyn Forest Massacre.

Ethnic Germans in Poland identified the intelligentsia to pave the way for decapitation of Polish leadership:

During the Invasion of Poland of 1939, a number of similar units operating in Poland and led by volunteers trained in Nazi Germany were officially merged into one organization. The unit took part in fighting as a Fifth Column, and then served as the auxiliary force of the Gestapo and SS during the early stages of the occupation of Poland. Numbering 82,000 men on November 26, 1939, the unit was disbanded and the majority of its members joined the German SS or Gestapo by the spring of the following year. -

With the beginning of the Invasion of Poland on 1 September 1939, Selbstschutz units engaged in hostility towards the Polish population and military, and performed sabotage operations helping the German attack on the Polish state. In mid-September, the chaotic and autonomous activities of this organization were coordinated by SS officers. Gustav Berger was placed in charge of the organization and district commanders in occupied zones made by the German army were put in place — West Prussia, Upper Silesia and Warthegau.

While the SS leadership was limited to overseeing the operations, local units remained under the control of ethnic Germans who had proven their commitment at the beginning of the war.

Selbstschutz also organized concentration camps for Poles. Occasionally they were founded in places whereWehrmacht or German police units established camps. There were 19 such camps in the following places:Bydgoszcz (Bromberg), Brodnica (Strasburg), Chełmno(Kulm), Dorposz Szlachecki, Kamień Krajeński,Karolewo, Lipno (Lippe), Łobżenica, Nakło (Nakel),Nowy Wiec (near Skarszew), Nowe (over Vistula),Piastoszyn, Płutowo, Sępolno, Krajeńskie, Solec Kujawski (Schulitz), Tuchola (Tuchel), Wąbrzeźno(Briesen), Wolental (near Skórcza), Wyrzysk (Wirsitz). The majority of the Poles imprisoned in those camps (consisting of men, women and youth) were murdered in cruel ways. [5]

After German invasion of Poland Selbstschutz worked together with the Einsatzgruppen in massacres of Poles. For example this organisation took part in first action of elimination Polish inteligentia. Intelligenzaktion was the plan to eliminate all Polish intelligentsia and Poland's leadership class. The operation took place soon after the fall of Poland, lasting from the fall of 1939 until the spring of 1940. [4] [6] As the result in 10 regional actions were killed 60,000 Polish nobles, teachers, polish entrepreneurs, social workers, military veterans, members of national organisations, priests, judges and political activists. [7] [8]

Polish Losses in World War II:

Poland Prewar population: 35 Million

Jewish Deaths: 3 Million

Polish Deaths: 3 Million

Approximately 1.5 million enslaved. (5% of population)

% of educated classes killed by Germans:

40 % of professors,

57% of lawyers

to give an idea...

Stalin executed 20.000 Polish Officers in the Katyn Forest, and perhaps another 120,000 in other actions.

By 5 October 1939, in West Prussia alone, Selbstschutz under the command of Ludolf von Alvensleben were 17,667 men strong, and had already executed 4,247 Poles, while Alvensleben complained to Selbstschutz officers that too few Poles had been shot. (German officers had reported that only a fraction of Poles had been "destroyed" in the region with the total number of those executed in West Prussia during this action being about 20,000. One Selbstschutz commander, Wilhelm Richardt, said in Karolewo (Karlhof) camp that he did not want to build big camps for Poles and feed them, and that it was an honour for Poles to fertilize the German soil with their corpses [9] There was little opposition or lack of enthusiasm for activities of the Selbstschutz among those involved in the action [9] . There was even a case where a Selbstschutz commander was relieved after he failed to account for all the Poles that were required, and it was found that he executed "only" 300 Poles [9] .

The total number of Selbstschutz members in Poland is estimated at 82,000.

The organization was ordered to be dissolved on 26 November 1939, yet this process continued until the spring of 1940. Among the reasons for this order were cases of extreme corruption, disorderly behaviour and conflicts with other organizations as well as excessive use of force.

The existence of a large paramilitary organization of ethnic Germans with Polish citizenship that helped in the German war against Poland and engaged in widespread massacres of Poles served as one of the reasons for theexpulsion of Germans after the war.
