Enslavement of Prisoners of War is a violation of the Geneva Convention. – Article. 75

The educational mantra would have us believe that slavery was abolished throughout the British Empire in 1833. This is what British students are taught; why would they believe otherwise?

How then does one explain this? In a report published in The Chicago Tribune (August 24, 1946), one of America’s greatest war correspondents, John Thompson, reported:

Great Britain in August 1946, 15-months after the war’s end, according to the International Red Cross, had 460,000 German prisoners of war slaving for her.”

Given widespread censorship no blame is attached to post-war generations for their being blithely unaware of the massive human slavery sanctioned by Britain’s unelected plutocracy during World War II.

In 1946, Britons on rations were suffering the dreadful aftermath of Winston Churchill’s calamitous war. It is easily imagined that their having been press-programmed to blame Germany for their wretchedness there would be little sympathy for the defeated foe anyway. In fact, ordinary British people got on very well with German prisoners of war in their communities.

German prisoners arriving from Europe and the US reached 400,000.

Today, thanks to the controlled mainstream media losing its grip on news dissemination we can look back on the period with a less jaundiced eye. How many know that it was the British public who revolted against their regime’s use of prisoner of war slavery?

In the late 1940s Britons were deeply ashamed and offended by their government profiting by over $250,000,000 each year from German slave labour. The Westminster regime was hiring prisoners of war out at up to $20 a week, and yet paying the slaves up to 20 cents a day. The prisoners were never given cash but provided with credits instead.

In March 1946, 140,000 prisoners-of-war were working on farms, which earned the British government $14 a week per prisoner, 24,000 on housing and bomb damage projects, 22,000 on the railways; others in odd jobs or waiting on GI brides awaiting shipment to America.

In Britain, among other public projects, German prisoners of war were forced to build in Kensington Gardens, a British victory celebration camp to house 24,000 Empire troops who marched in a four mile column to celebrate the Victory Day Parade. One foreman remarked, “I guess the Jerries are preparing to celebrate their own downfall. It does seem as though it is laying it on a bit thick.”

The London office of the Chicago Tribune Press Service on August 27, 1946 reported:

Such were the desperate straits of the German prisoners-of-war that an increasing number of them were escaping from British slave camps and they were doing so assisted by British civilians. “Accounts of the chases by Military Police are reminiscent of pre-Civil War pursuits by fleeing Negro fugitives.”

The bonds between ordinary Britons and Germans endured for many years after the war. One German slave labourer was not alone in referring to the farmer and his wife for whom he worked as ‘my English parents’.

Most Britons were in favour of allowing Britain’s hundreds of thousands of slaves to return to their German homelands. There was hardly a word of dissent when a journalist pleaded:

If we must have foreign labour to make up our shortfall let it be free labour… forced labour is intolerable.”

Little known is that it was German prisoners of war who were pivotal in rescuing Britain and the British people from disaster two years after the war had ended. During February 1947 the worst weather conditions on record brought the United Kingdom to a stop.

The British Minister of Fuel and Power conceded that he could not guarantee electricity or gas supplies beyond another week. Deep snowdrifts had paralysed the railways and roads. Coal, the nation’s primary power resource, was no longer reaching power stations, gasworks, factories and homes.

In order that the roads and railways be cleared thousands of British workers worked shoulder-to-shoulder with equal numbers of German prisoners of war. The Independent newspaper says:

Though the role of the prisoners was played down at the time and has never been officially recognized, without their contribution it is unclear how the nation could have avoided disaster.

The newspaper went on to say: ‘Doubtless, Britain would have survived somehow but where else could it have found 400,000 strong and reasonably willing workers for a shilling (5 U.S Cents) a day.’ Let us be fair; it was the British people, not William Wilberforce in 1833, who finally destroyed slavery in the United Kingdom.

  1. A wonderful article. Mike. Empathy for others is what makes us human. Empathy was something lacking in our political leaders back then as well as now. I doubt Churchill had an empathetic bone in his body and the same goes for Stalin, FDR, Truman, and Eisenhower. The insane and useless wars the West gets involved in for Zionist and Globalist interests is a horrible evil dress up as patriotism and essential by the Media who are also perpetrators of this evil. It is interesting you mentioned William Wilberforce. It was men like Wilberforce and the American Thomas Jefferson who helped destroy the Atlantic Slave Trade. Now, their statues are in danger of being pulled down and destroyed by idiots driven on by identity politicians.

    • Europeans are constantly blamed for slavery yet abolished slavery and Europeans were by far the most enslaved. Today, 40.3 million people are slaves ~ of non-Europeans.

      • I don’t know about that, Mike. My Talmud-Vision set tells me, constantly that there is something wrong with Europeans and especially Germans. I also just learned from the Hitler Channel, that the Fuhrer escaped and got away to Argentina where he built a monstrous military ready to invade the United States.

  2. I completely agree with you. The destruction of National Socialist Germany was a horrid tragedy. And, we of European heritage are paying for it now.

  3. I just finished reading the Hanna Reitsch book “Fliegen – Mein Leben” (Flying – My Life). If there ever was even the tiniest sliver of doubt about Adolf Hitler’s death in 1945, this book puts that to rest. Hanna was in the bunker with Hitler and the others from April 26 to 29, 1945. Like you say, Mike, Hitler had many opportunities to run, but he never wavered in his loyalty and love of his Volk, and stayed in his leadership position to the bitter end. Under Hitler’s orders, Hanna Reitsch left the bunker together with Feldmarschall v. Greim. It was a minor miracle that they made it out alive. Hitler, Goebbels and his family, Eva Braun, and a few others whom she named, stayed behind. Hanna’s description of Hitler the last time she saw him was an image of a man whose life was already leaving him.
    Hanna Reitsch then spent 18 months as a prisoner of war. The Americans who held her interrogated her hard because of their suspicions that she got him out of there. That was their total fabrication and fantasy. Her big crime was her deep love of her country and that she stayed loyal to the German army to the end.

  4. Thank you, Monika. Hanna Reitsch was a true German patriot. I pray she didn’t go through the horror and abuse Leni Riefenstahl went through when taken captive. By the way, are you someone who just had their Facebook page erased? If you are the same Monika, just remember, you are in good company. They de-platformed Dr.Ron Paul, also.

    • Hello Papasha, I was booted out of Facebook last June, and was unable to get any access to my page or any Facebook page since then. But my page was still visible to others. I don’t know if it is now completely gone or not. I will get my friend to check for me tomorrow. My full name is Monika Schaefer, and my profile picture on Fb was a 911 Truth banner. The banner across the top of my page was a beautiful picture of voyageur canoes on the Athabasca River in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta.
      My website was taken down on January 11th. I am working on rebuilding another one. It will be up soon. freespeechmonika.com

      • Hello, Monika. I tried to contact you when Brian Ruhe gave me your e-mail address, but, somehow I lost it. I was basically going to say what I mentioned earlier. Take the deletion of your Facebook page as a mark of honor. You are in good company. Dr. Ron Paul, E. Michael Jones, and Ryan Dawson have all experienced what you have. I’m surprised I’m still up. But, I’m seriously considering changing platforms. I’ll be looking for your new site. Keep well, Monika. I hope your brother Alfred is doing O.K.

  5. Years ago I knew one of the German soldiers mentioned in the narrative. He was only a young conscript but had still seen much. He had been at Monte Casino and had some fascinating stories to tell of the battle and his time in Italy. Anyway, he had come to Britain as ‘slave labour’ working on the railways. His face was scarred and I one day I asked asked him if the scarring was a war wound. He laughed and said no, he had survived the war relatively unscathed. The scarring was the result of a steam engine explosion in this country. He was from the eastern part of Germany and when he had finished his ‘servitude’ was given the option of staying or returning to Soviet occupied Germany. He stayed, married locally(Suffolk), and ran his own business. He’s undoubtedly gone now and I should record some of the stories he told, some of them quite hilarious.

    • Our family’s German POW friend lived and worked on the farm next door to our cottage. Strange, I have happily known hundreds of Germans but he was the only Fritz I ever knew.
