Some uninformed defenders of the Holocaust tale declare that if the Jews hadn’t been forced or taken against their will from their homes and lifestyles, none of this would have never happened even if it were just the unfortunate death of hundreds of thousands by starvation and typhus. Very few understand that there were TWO entities that wanted the German, later European Jews, to emigrate out of Germany and Europe…the German Nazis and the Zionists. The World Zionist Organization and the American Jewish Council were adamant that Jews emigrate nowhere else than Palestine. The Germans had tried to arrange emigration to Madagascar and Uganda but those possibilities were closed by Jewish organizations. What remained is a working relationship with the Zionist organizations Irgun and Haganah to facilitate emigration to Palestine. The British made this difficult.
Edwin Black, of Jewish heritage, an erudite scholar wrote The Transfer Agreement: The Untold Story of the Secret Pact between the Third Reich and Jewish Palestine, published in 1984. Dr. Sybil Milton of the Simon Wiesenthal Center calls it,
a spellbinding, exciting book. This subject has not been previously explored. It adds a significant new dimension to our understanding of this critical era.”
Yoav Gelber of the Yad Vashem Israel Holocaust Museum states,
Edwin Black’s research is striking in its dimension and scope. The vast uncovering of source material and its extensive use are almost overwhelming. He penetrates deep into the political and economic processes of inter-Jewish relations and into gentile attitudes involving the rescue of Jews from Nazi rule for the benefit of the Zionist enterprise of Eretz Yisrael.
Black focuses primarily on the effects of the Zionist elements among world Jewry which had declared war on Germany by means of a boycott on all German goods.
Although propagandists attempt to dismiss this amazing event as just a newspaper headline, it lead to high level negotiations between the German government and Zionists. Since Jews controlled much of the world’s shipping, they could effectively block German commerce. The terms of the Transfer Agreement were that the boycott would end in return to the transfer of German Jews to the Palestine.
The German Chancellor, Heinrich Bruning, had responded to the boycott by establishing currency restrictions that prevented ANYONE, German or foreigner, Christian or Jew, from transferring their wealth out of the country without permission. The restriction was NOT aimed at Jews OR Christians, but at speculators and hoarders.
At the same time, the British, who controlled the Palestine under a League of Nations mandate following WW I, limited Jewish entry into Palestine only to those in possession of at least a thousand pounds (equal to about $5000 today).
The Transfer Agreement began to degenerate into a personal feud along tactical lines. The Mapai or Labor Zionists wanted a communal, collective for a Jewish elite who would do manual work and farming. The Revisionist Zionists wanted a mixed urban-rural society based on free enterprise instead of socialism. Mapai used political intrigue and long-term manipulation whereas Revisionists were very fascist and impatient. Chaim Arlosoroff headed the Mapai and Sam Cohen, the Revisionists. Cohen saw personal advantages to the power he was concentrating in his own hands as a Jewish hero. Arlosoroff was murdered.
Black’s analysis was that the economic relationship with Germany was indispensable in the creation of the State of Israel. Without Germany and the Nazis, there would have been no “aliyah,” the Return to Jerusalem.
The close alliance of Nazi Germany and the Zionists was even more probable because many of them were of Jewish heritage.. A German Jewish schoolteacher, Dietrich Bronder, wrote Before Hitler Came in 1964 in which he documented the Jewish Heritage of Adolf Hitler, Rudolf Hess, Reichsmarshall Hermann Goering, Dr. Josef Goebbels, Gregor Strasser, Alfred Rosenberg, Hans Frank, Heinrich Himmler, Reichsminister von Ribbentrop, SS Leader Reinhard Himmler, and Hitler’s bankers, Ritter von Strauss and von Stein.
In 1974 an Austrian Jew, Henneke Kardel wrote Adolf Hitler: Founder of Israel:
The cooperation which existed between Heydrich’s Gestapo and the Jewish self-defense league in Palestine, the Haganah, would not have been closer if it was not for Eichmann who made it public…the commander of Haganah was Feivel Polkes, born Poland, with whom in February 1937, the SD troop leader Adolf Eichmann met in Berlin in a wine restaurant, Traube, near the zoo. These two Jews made a brotherly agreement. Polkes the underground fighter got in writing this assurance from Eichman: ‘A body representing Jews in Germany will exert pressure on those leaving Germany to emigrate only to Palestine. Such a policy is in the interest of Germany and will be executed by the Gestapo.”
Polkes invited his Jewish “brother”, Eichmann, to the land of their ancestors. When he returned from Palestine, Eichmann wrote,
People of Jewish national circles are very excited about the radical German politics toward the Jews, as this has increased Jewish population in Palestine many-fold. In a short time they will become the majority among the Arabs.
In The Secret Contacts: Zionism and Nazi Germany –1933-1941 by Klaus Polkehn and serialized in the Journal of Palestine Studies confirms what Edwin Black had revealed, that on February 28 1937, Feivel Polkes, head of the Haganah had told Adolf Eichmann that he was interested most of all in “accelerating Jewish migration to Palestine so that the Jews would obtain a majority over the Arabs in his country.” Polkehn revealed that collaboration between the Zionists and the Third Reich was cemented by the “Mossad Aliyah Beth” which had been created by Haganah as an illegal immigration organization. Pina Ginsburg and Moshe Auerbach, with the blessings of the Reich, set up offices in Berlin to carry out their immigration activities in 1938.
Jews Jon and David Kimche in Secret Roads wrote that the Mossad special mission
converged with the intentions of the Nazi government. Only with the support of the Nazi leaders could the project be carried out on a larger scale
The Gestapo had discussed with Ginsburg “how to promote and expand illegal Jewish immigration into Palestine against the will of the British mandate government.
That summer, Eichmann met in Vienna with another Mossad representative, Bar-Gilead, who requested permission to set up training camps for emigrants so they could be prepared for their work in Palestine. Consulting with Berlin, Eichmann was granted permission to supply all that was needed to facilitate the Zionist training program. Pina Ginsburg in Berlin, working with Nazi authorities set up training camps.
The leaders of Zionism and the Third Reich collaborated in their effort to force the emigration of German Jews to Palestine. The Nazis found a Final Solution to their problem and Zionists succeeded in skewing the demographics of Palestine toward a Jewish majority. Camps were built; money was confiscated and transferred to Zionist banks in Palestine to circumvent the British barriers to Jews. The discriminatory round-up of German Jews and their persecution was planned and implemented with the consent and collaboration of Jews who called proudly called themselves “Zionist.”
A year and a half after the outbreak of war, January 11, 1941, the Irgun Zvai Leumi offered an agreement of collaboration with the Third Reich. They said:
It is often stated in the speeches and utterances of the leading of Nationalist Socialist Germany that a New Order in Europe requires as a prerequisite the radical solution of the Jewish question through evacuation. (Judesreines Europa)
The solving of the Jewish problem and thus the liberation of the Jewish people once and for all is the objective of the political activity and the years long struggle of the Jewish freedom movement: the National Military Organization (Irgun Zvai Leumi) in Palestine.
The NMO, which is well acquainted with the goodwill of the German Reich Government and its authorities towards Zionist activity inside Germany and towards Zionist emigration plans is of the opinion that:
- Common interests could exist between the establishment of a new order in Europe in conformity with the German concept and the true national aspirations of the Jewish people as they are embodied by the NMO.
- Cooperation between the new Germany and a renewed Hebrew nation would be possible.
- The establishment of the historical Jewish state on a national and totalitarian basis and bound by a treaty with the German Reich would be in the interest of maintaining and strengthening the future German position of power in the Near East.
The indirect participation of the Israeli freedom movement in the drawing up of the New Order in Europe, already in its preparatory stage, would be connected with a positively radical solution of the European Jewish problem in conformity with te above-mentioned national aspirations of the Jewish people. This would strengthen to an uncommon degree the moral basis of the New Order in the eyes of the entire world.
Proceeding from these considerations, the NMO in Palestine offers to take an active part in the war on Germany’s side, provided that above-mentioned national aspirations of the Jewish liberation movement are recognized by the German Reich government.
This offer by the NMO, whose validity extends over the military, political, and information levels, inside and also according to certain organizational preparations outside Palestine, would be bound to the military training and organizing of Jewish manpower in Europe under the leadership and command of the NMO. These military units would take part in the fighting to conquer Palestine, in case such a front is formed.
Such a front did not form, the Germans chose not to take up the offer and the Zionists found another way to accomplish the same ends, turning the Nazi collaboration against them. Propaganda laid the groundwork to crystallize public opinion against the Nazi/Zionist training camps and letting the natural course of war — disruption of supplies, typhus, typhoid, dysentery, and starvation — create the setting for blaming the Nazis for atrocities and genocide.
The effectiveness of that propaganda campaign can be seen today. Soviet Archives that held the complete records of the camps became available to researchers in the early 90’s. Even though the Israeli Holocaust Museum agreed with an assessment, based on early results from the archives, that not 4 million, but 1.5 million Jews died at the Auschwitz complex, that did NOT reduce the total from 6 million to 3.5 million. The mantra of 6 million could not be budged no matter what facts came to light. When the microfilms were shown to total no more than 400,000 and only 73,000 at the Auschwitz complex–far below the 1.5 million, the propagandists had to propose secret lists to make up the difference and maintain the 6 million icon of the Holocaust Industry.
