"Le chant du Diable" and "SS Marschiert" (Cameron Sawyer, Russia, 07/03/19 3:44 am)

"Le Chant du Diable" (Eugenio Battaglia, 1 July) is not indeed peculiar to the French Charlemagne Division; it is merely a French translation of the standard Waffen-SS marching song, "SS Marschiert":

SS marschiert in Feindesland,
Und singt ein Teufelslied.
Ein Schütze steht am Oderstrand,
Und leise summt er mit.
Wir pfeifen auf Unten und Oben,
Und uns kann die ganze Welt.
Verfluchen oder auch loben,
Grad wie es die wohl gefällt.
Wo wir sind da geht's immer vorwärts,
Und der Teufel der lacht nur dazu!
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!
Wir kämpfen für Deutschland,
Wir kämpfen für Hitler,
Der Rote kommt nie mehr zur Ruh'.
Wir kämpften schon in mancher Schlacht,
Im Nord, Süd, Ost und West.
Und stehen nun zum Kampf bereit,
Gegen die rote Pest.
SS wird nicht ruh'n, wir vernichten,
Bis niemand mehr stört Deutschlands Glück.
Und wenn sich die Reihen auch lichten,
Für uns gibt es nie ein Zurück.
Wo wir sind da geht's immer vorwärts,
Und der Teufel der lacht nur dazu!
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!
Wir kämpfen für Deutschland,
Wir kämpfen für Hitler,
Der Rote kommt nie mehr zur Ruh.

The SS marches in the enemy land/And sings a devil's song . . . 


JE comments:  Fascinating.  Given the international composition of the SS, this little ditty must exist in 20 or more languages--Arabic as well?  There were some Muslim SSers.

  • Muslims in the SS (Eugenio Battaglia, Italy 07/07/19 6:44 AM)
    John E wrote, "There were some Muslim SSers."

    It would be more correct to use the adjective "many" rather than some.

    The Muslims were mainly in the SS Division "Hanschar" from Bosnia, but also in the "Kama" (or 2nd Croatian) plus the Albanian Skanderbeg. There were also Muslims from the Caucasus, plus Turkmens, Indians, Tartars, Arabs, etc. Many other foreigners joined the Wehrmacht, including Muslims.

    In the past we mentioned Nazi propaganda to be dismissed.  I would like to comment on the Gleiwitz/Gliwice attack.  Was it Nazi propaganda or Empire propaganda?

    The world believes the story of the false-flag German attack on the radio station of Gleiwitz at 20:30 hours on 31 August 1939, as it was related by SS Sturmbannfuhrer Alfred Naujocks.

    This fellow in November 1944 deserted and surrendered to the American forces. At the Nuremberg Trials he left a written declaration describing the attack in great detail.  He then disappeared in Argentina. Only in 1966 was he arrested and sent back to Germany, where he suddenly died aged 55 of a heart attack.

    Hitler in his speech to the Reichstag stressed his readiness to fight for Germans abroad.  He mentioned 21 border incidents without any detail and never mentioned the great "casus belli" that would have been Gleiwitz.

    Does not sound strange? This is also the impression that the researcher/historian Jak Mallman-Showell has had recently.

    About suspicious confessions, Rudolf Hess declared that three million people were killed at Auschwitz, but now the official number of deaths is 1.1 million. The ill-famed British historian David Irving in his book Nuremberg, the Last Battle has a long list of interesting confessions and of similar facts which depending on the side ones are good the others are bad.  It is all strange.

    Happy 4th of July!

    JE comments:  So Gleiwitz was a "false false-flag" operation?  Eugenio, are you claiming that the incident indeed was carried out by irregular Polish troops, or that it never occurred at all?

    Regarding the deaths at Auschwitz, are we speaking of Rudolf Hess or Rudolf Höss?  I presume the latter, who was the camp's commandant.
