Nazi children 'left behind' in Norway

February 25, 2000 the Telegraph carried a story that describes the fate and experiences of children fathered by German soldiers in Norway during World War II.   Now, many decades and two generations later, some of those children are launching a class-action suit against the Norwegian Government in an attempt to obtain compensation.

Do the children that Norwegian women acquired from German soldiers have a legitimate claim for damages inflicted on them?

The children left behind by German soldiers aren't the only children ever left behind. Elsewhere and elsewhen in the world children were acquired under similar circumstances — throughout human history and evolution.

In 1961-62 I worked in Korea. I had never heard of any American soldier raping a Korean woman, although without any doubt a rape of a Korean woman must have been alleged at least once. No, the only obvious evidence of the desirability, extent and existence of sexual relations between the mostly American UN soldiers (under a Russian UN Commander-in-Chief) and Korean women was that the American soldiers were given condoms before they went on leave, and that Korean women were lining up along the streets outside the camp gates when the soldiers were coming out on leave.

One would imagine that most American soldiers don't frequent prostitutes, but some do. Most Korean women are not prostitutes, but some are. Most Korean woman — prostitutes or not — who had sex with American soldiers didn't become pregnant, but some did. The evidence after a few years of the presence of American soldiers was quite obvious in Seoul, a city of about 2.5 million people at the time I worked there. The American soldiers had been doing their best to leave behind the evidence in the form of deposits that Korean women obviously much desired, because so many of them had given birth to the consequences.  The evidence was quite obvious, especially if the men who had fathered those children had been black.

The Korean women were no less or no more chaste than the French, Norwegian, Polish, and Russian women under German occupation or the German women under French, English, Russian and American occupation, in fact, no more or no less chaste than any women at any time and anywhere with whom soldiers ever mingled under any kind of social circumstances.

That is human nature. Evidence exists that shows that kind of mingling is far more common than many people think. Human nature was the cause of massive and steady migration throughout the world. Not all of that migration happened through immigration by whole and ready-made families. Much of it was during all of human existence in the form of fraternization between military forces that occupied or moved through localities anywhere and everywhere humans resided and where men and women met.

If the soldiers involved in the fraternization traveled long distances, the children that they fathered were easily recognizable. In Korea, Indochina, Vietnam, Germany, Italy, England and France, for instance, the consequences of the fraternization between Afro-American soldiers and local women are now a prominent and logically obvious part of the population.  If the children had been fathered by Whites, then the evidence was a little less obvious but still present.

DNA testing has not yet been employed to the fullest to determine the extent and history of genetic diversification and migration. Without any doubt the migration happened, and without any doubt, pieces of the general picture are emerging, now that the human genome project is completed or is said to have been completed. Soon we'll know for sure why there are so many blond and blue-eyed Italians who look as German as the most Germanic-looking German does. Their genealogical roots go back to the Vandals, the Visigoths. There are a lot of black-haired Germans whose genealogical roots, I'm sure, go back to the time of the Roman Empire. The Romans didn't just leave their culture, their factories, their roads, their fortified walls, their buildings and stadiums. They also left their genes wherever they went, and so did Attila and his hordes. The latter, so it is said, raped all the women and killed all the men wherever they went. Did they, really?

Until this day it can be observed that some children born in an area around Berlin in Germany wear the blue Mongoloid spot at birth at the bases of their spines. Attila and his army had traveled through there, although his soldiers didn't rape the women and kill the men in that part of Germany. History has it that the soldiers under the command of one of his generals went AWOL after they had suffered a defeat in another part of Northern Germany and were on retreat. They hid in the woods and were eventually taken in and assimilated by the local population in that area where we now have Berlin. Obviously they were well-liked; therefore today's blue spots at the base of the spine of some babies born around Berlin and elsewhere.

I suppose that any children who ever resulted from such military "conquests" felt discriminated against and claimed that any treatment they received and didn't like constituted maltreatment — discrimination of a massive sort directed at them. Some of these children are probably right. Were all of them being maltreated and discriminated against? Canadian Natives make that very claim with respect to having been forced into attending residential schools that their parents wanted them to go to. The parents had wished that their children would learn the white man's ways and language. The story goes that the Native children were then promptly "abused" (in reality no more than any white man's children were who went to school anywhere in the world).

Some of the abuse claims may well be true. I remember receiving a good caning for something I didn't do. So what? I didn't receive a caning for a lot of other things that definitely weren't that good and should have caused one. On the balance of things I didn't just get even, I came out ahead, but if I wanted to persecute the teacher who gave me that undeserved caning, I could do it. The teacher doesn't live anymore, but the government that employed him still does, and I can still produce eye-witnesses of the "abuse" I received. For good measure I could add as additional evidence a couple more canings (that I *did* deserve, but why mention that, it's counterproductive).

I used to have that teacher's picture (the picture got lost along with all of my other personal possessions — including my underwear — when me first wife walked out of our marriage). The teacher's oldest son was one of my five best friends. We went to school together and we had at that time 45 boys in our class. His dad had just returned from a prison-of-war camp about two years after the war was over. He was one of the first male teachers in our neighbourhood who had returned after the war. He was one of the few men who did come back, one of the very few men who were still in one piece.

If I would have had that caning happen to me in Norway and I would have been the illegitimate child of an unwed Norwegian mother, I could probably sue the Norwegian government now for compensation. Whether I would do that is another question and depends on the size of the offer I can't refuse. We can find instances of abuse everywhere we look for them, but most people don't look, only those do who find it profitable to be victims. What the heck, if it works wonders for Canadian Natives, why not for anyone else who wants to be a victim? The "government" will pay, the "government" will pay — and in the meantime our taxes are inexorably increasing to ever new and ever higher levels as more and more "victims" follow the rush and put in their claims. There's gold in them-thar claims of victimhood.

If they tried really hard, and if they went back far enough, and if they would find a lawyer smart enough and sufficiently savvy, I know that the German descendants of Attila the Hun's hordes could today put in a claim for back child support and other damages that would bankrupt the current Chinese government. Moreover, if we were to assume only a reasonable average inflation rate for the damages caused by Attila the Hun, the total amount of the claim that the descendants of his victims could put in today would exceed the value of all of the money supply in the whole world, by many times that amount. Why not?! Go for it! The "government" will pay.

Where and when will somebody put his foot down and draw the line? Is the limit only set by the imagination of lawyers and that of the victims they fabricate continuously? It doesn't matter, the "government" will pay.

There's gold in victimhood, so, go and dig for it.

Norwegian government sued over children Nazis left behind

By Tony Paterson and Allan Hall in Berlin


THE Norwegian government is facing a series of highly embarrassing lawsuits following shocking allegations that it connived after the war in the maltreatment of thousands of children fathered by German troops during the Nazi occupation.

The plight of the estimated 12,000 children born to Norwegian women but fathered by Germans under the Nazis' infamous lebensborn racial purity programme is to be brought before the Norwegian courts later this year after more than 50 years of official lack of interest in the subject.

In the run-up to the court cases, many lebensborn victims have spoken out about the savage treatment meted out to them by the Norwegian government and by ordinary citizens during the postwar years for the crime of being Tyskerbarna or "German bastards". Many were locked away in orphanages or mental asylums for years - where they were subjected to sexual abuse - or had the "Germanness" beaten out of them by their Norwegian foster parents.

An initial 150 cases researched by the lawyer Randi Hagen Spydevold will form the basis of legal claims by lebensborn children for compensation from the Norwegian government. However, the Oslo-based lawyer says that since she began drawing attention to their plight, hundreds of other cases have been brought to her notice.

Mrs Spydevold told the Telegraph last week: "My clients' lives have been wrecked by a combination of official stigma and individual brutality. All we learned in school was how bravely the Norwegian resistance fought against the Nazis. I first heard about the plight of lebensborn victims a year ago and I was outraged."

Norway capitulated to the Germans on April 10, 1940. The Norwegian government subsequently fled into exile in Britain leaving the Nazi sympathiser and nationalist leader Vidkun Quisling heading a puppet regime.

Most of the victims were products of the Nazi SS leader Heinrich Himmler's lebensborn or "fountain of life" policy, which actively promoted sexual relations between German troops and women classed as true Aryans - such as the Norwegians. The children conceived were taken from their mothers to be raised as "racially pure" citizens for the Third Reich.

Mrs Spydevold said she also had evidence of human rights abuses which went far beyond brutality. They involved four lebensborn children who died allegedly after being used in the 1950s and 1960s by the Norwegian defence ministry and the CIA to test the effects of the hallucinogenic drug, LSD.

Karl-Otto Zinken, 60, was one of the victims. Born to a German soldier and a Norwegian mother, he was placed in a lebensborn home in the Norwegian port city of Bergen after his birth in 1941. After the war the Norwegian authorities placed him in a mental institution where he was beaten and tortured and subsequently sexually abused by two doctors. Mr Zinken said: "We were regarded as the rubbish that the Germans left behind. The Norwegian authorities simply shut their eyes and let it happen."

Another of the lebensborn children was Tove Laila. She was taken at the age of one by the SS to her German grandparents in the east German city of Eberswalde in 1942 after her father was killed in action. Mrs Laila, now aged 59, remembers: "It was the happiest period in my life."

In 1947, under an agreement reached by the Allies and the Norwegian government, Mrs Laila was returned to her Norwegian mother where she was an unwelcome guest. Aged only six and speaking no Norwegian, she was beaten daily by her stepfather whenever she uttered a word of German. He later regularly sexually abused her.

Mrs Spydevold said: "No attempt was made by the Norwegian authorities to check what kind of family Mrs Laila was being sent to. She suffered years of abuse because nobody was interested in her well-being."

An estimated 50,000 Norwegian women are thought to have had affairs with Germans during the occupation. They were branded as Tyskerhoren or "German whores" by much of the population during and after the war.

Branded as collaborators, the women were publicly ostracised and subjected to humiliating punishments, such as having their heads shaved after the defeat of Germany. Tor Brandacher, of the Association of Lebensborn War Children, said: "We needed somebody to hate after 1945 and women were ideal targets." Documents collected by Mr Brandacher suggest that it was Norwegian policy after the war to portray the women and their children as mentally deficient.

To date, the Norwegian government has shown little interest in lebensborn victims. It has argued that their cases are "spent" because the injustices occurred more than 30 years ago. Norway's Social Democrat health minister, Tor Toenne, said: "They had an especially difficult childhood, but the misdeeds against these children were lapses. It is difficult to reconstruct what happened to them after so many years."

The survivors are adamant, however, that the government should address one of the most shameful chapters in Norway's history. Gerd Fleischer, a 58-year-old Oslo charity organiser and the daughter of a German soldier and a Norwegian woman, said: "The terminology used to describe us was as bad as the Nazis in its contempt for mankind. I grew up as a second-class person in hell. As a civilised nation, Norway must finally apologise and bring all the facts to light."

Seizing children — a tactic for the destruction of the family and to attain state-control of the population

Throughout history, rampant child apprehensions and state-ownership of children went hand-in-hand with totalitarian regimes and tyrannies.

Antiquity — The apprehension of children – boys – in antiquity

20th Century — Evolution of the Hitler Youth

...in a series of coldly and shrewdly calculated moves, radical extremists usurped the youth movement that was very much splintered along political and religious ideological lines and consolidated it into a unified and rigorously controlled sector of the German population.  The slogan that motivated the Nazi leaders was an adaptation of a slogan attributed to Napoleon "Who controls the youths controls the future!"  (Wer die Jugend hat, hat die Zukunft), although its origins go back to Socrates (whom Plato, in Republic, has offer this advice to philosopher kings: "Take all the children from their parents and rid the city of adults."), and, as the history of Ancient Greece shows with respect to Sparta, even farther back in antiquity.

Modern Times — Big Sister Is Watching

First they came for the fathers, then for the mothers, and now for   both parents in intact families.  In the end all children will be in the care, custody and control of the State.

An epidemic of state-sponsored kidnapping feeds a tyrannical system hungry for revenues.  Child Protective Services and Children's Aid Societies systematically and increasingly often rob children from their parents.  Kafkaesque chicaneries that the targeted families find impossible to comply with are the tools used to keep the revenues rolling in.  Many families don't survive the ordeals that they are being subjected to by any given CPS or CAS.
