Joseph Goebbels

1897- 1945

German Nazi Leader

Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels received a PhD in Literature and History from the University of Heidelberg. In 1922, he joined the Nazi Party and quickly climbed through the party ranks.

When Hitler came to power in 1933, Goebbels was appointed propaganda chief, controlling all forms of German media -- print, radio, film and theater.

He used that position to glorify the Nazi movement and attack its opponents. As the war's end approached and Russian troops arrived in Berlin, Goebbels poisoned his six children, and then he and his wife shot themselves.


Goebbels children

The Goebbels children were the five daughters and one son born to Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels and his wife Magda Goebbels. The children, born between 1932 and 1940, were murdered by their parents in Berlin on 1 May 1945, the day both parents committed suicide.

Magda Goebbels had an elder son, Harald Quandt, from a previous marriage to Günther Quandt. Harald, then aged 23, was a prisoner of war when his younger half-siblings were killed. There are many theories of how they were killed one is that Magda Goebbels gave them something 'sweetened' to drink. Currently, the most supported theory is that they were killed with a cyanide capsule.

The source of the big lie technique is this passage, taken from Chapter 10 of James Murphy's translation of Mein Kampf (the quote is one paragraph in Murphy's translation and in the German original):

But it remained for the Jews, with their unqualified capacity for falsehood, and their fighting comrades, the Marxists, to impute responsibility for the downfall precisely to the man who alone had shown a superhuman will and energy in his effort to prevent the catastrophe which he had foreseen and to save the nation from that hour of complete overthrow and shame. By placing responsibility for the loss of the world war on the shoulders of Ludendorff they took away the weapon of moral right from the only adversary dangerous enough to be likely to succeed in bringing the betrayers of the Fatherland to Justice.

All this was inspired by the principle – which is quite true within itself – that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods.

It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying.

The Cold War historian Zachary Jonathan Jacobson describes its use: [10]

Adolf Hitler first defined the Big Lie as a deviant tool wielded by Viennese Jews to discredit the Germans' deportment in World War I . Yet, in tragically ironic fashion, it was Hitler and his Nazi regime that actually employed the mendacious strategy. In an effort to rewrite history and blame European Jews for Germany's defeat in World War I , Hitler and his propaganda minister accused them of profiting from the war, consorting with foreign powers and "war shirking" (avoiding conscription). Jews, Hitler contended, were the weak underbelly of the Weimer state that exposed the loyal and true German population to catastrophic collapse. To sell this narrative, Joseph Goebbels insisted "all effective propaganda must be limited to a very few points and must harp on these in slogans until the last member of the public understands."

In short, Nazi fascism hinged on creating one streamlined, overarching lie . the Nazis built an ideology on a fiction, the notion that Germany's defeat in World War I could be avenged (and reversed) by purging the German population of those purportedly responsible: the Jews.

The phrase "big lie" was also used in a report prepared during the war by the United States Office of Strategic Services in describing Hitler's psychological profile: [11]

His primary rules were: never allow the public to cool off never admit a fault or wrong never concede that there may be some good in your enemy never leave room for alternatives never accept blame concentrate on one enemy at a time and blame him for everything that goes wrong people will believe a big lie sooner than a little one and if you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it. (CIA) [12]

The above quote appears in the report, A Psychological Analysis of Adolph Hitler: His Life and Legend, by Walter C. Langer, [12] [13] which is available from the US National Archives. [14] A somewhat similar quote appears in Analysis of the Personality of Adolph Hitler: With Predictions of His Future Behaviour and Suggestions for Dealing with Him Now and After Germany's Surrender, by Henry A. Murray, October 1943: [15]

Never to admit a fault or wrong never to accept blame concentrate on one enemy at a time blame that enemy for everything that goes wrong take advantage of every opportunity to raise a political whirlwind.

Joseph Goebbels put forth a theory which has come to be more commonly associated with the expression "big lie". Goebbels wrote the following paragraph in an article dated 12 January 1941, sixteen years after Hitler first used the phrase. The article, titled "Aus Churchills Lügenfabrik" (English: "From Churchill's Lie Factory") was published in Die Zeit ohne Beispiel.

The essential English leadership secret does not depend on particular intelligence. Rather, it depends on a remarkably stupid thick-headedness. The English follow the principle that when one lies, one should lie big, and stick to it. They keep up their lies, even at the risk of looking ridiculous. [16]

The following supposed quotation of Joseph Goebbels has been repeated in numerous books and articles and on thousands of web pages, yet none of them has cited a primary source. According to the research and reasoning of Randall Bytwerk, it is an unlikely thing for Goebbels to have said: [17]

If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.

To support his attempts to overturn the 2020 United States presidential election, President Donald Trump and his allies repeatedly and falsely claimed there had been massive election fraud and that Trump had really won the election. [6] [7] U.S. Senators Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz subsequently contested the election results in the Senate. [19] Their effort was characterized as "the big lie" by then President-elect Joe Biden: "I think the American public has a real good, clear look at who they are", Biden said two days after the Capitol was attacked. "They're part of the big lie, the big lie." [20] Republican senators Mitt Romney and Pat Toomey, scholars of fascism Timothy Snyder and Ruth Ben-Ghiat, Russian affairs expert Fiona Hill, and others also used the term big lie to refer to Donald Trump's false claims about massive election fraud. [21] By May 2021, the Republican party had come to embrace the false narrative and use it as justification to impose new voting restrictions in its favor. [22]

Dominion Voting Systems, which provided voting machines to many jurisdictions in the 2020 election, is seeking $1.3 billion in damages from Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani. In the lawsuit, Dominion alleges that "he and his allies manufactured and disseminated the 'Big Lie', which foreseeably went viral and deceived millions of people into believing that Dominion had stolen their votes and fixed the election." [23]

In early 2021, The New York Times examined Trumps promotion of "the big lie" for political purposes to subvert the 2020 election, and concluded the lie encouraged the 2021 United States Capitol attack. [8] [24]

During the second impeachment trial of Donald Trump, the house managers Jamie Raskin, Joe Neguse, Joaquin Castro, Stacey Plaskett and Madeleine Dean all used the phrase "the big lie" repeatedly to refer to the notion that the election was stolen, with a total of 16 mentions in the initial presentation alone. "The Big Lie", leading up to and including the election period, formed the first section of the "provocation" part of the argument. [25] [26]

In early 2021, several prominent Republicans tried to appropriate the term "the big lie", claiming that it refers to other issues. [27] Trump stated that the term refers to the "Fraudulent Presidential Election of 2020". [28] Mitch McConnell and Newt Gingrich said that "the big lie" is opposition to restrictive new voter ID requirements. [27] [29]


Joseph Goebbels - History

Reverend Dr. Hardy Lloyd has a long history of European Civil Rights activism. He founded the ONS in 1993, and co-founded the White Pittsburgh Front with local Skinheads in 2003. He holds the rank of High Priest in the Creativity religion, having been ordained by Rev. Matt Hale. He also formed the CHURCH OF CREATIVITY in 2003, which became the CHURCH OF BEN KLASSEN in 2015. He has been a member and supportive komrade of the following groups: the World Church Of The Creator, The Creativity Movement, The Creativity Alliance, The National-Socialist American Workers Party, The Amerikan Free Core, Wotan's Volk, The Keystone State Skinheads, White Aryan Resistance, The National Alliance and White Revolution. He also inspired the formation of the group 'National Socialist Order' (AtomWaffen Division) in 2015. Many of his essays can be read on WIKILEAKS, and he is also quoted in several books on the Twin Towers demolition, as well as USA "Domestic Terrorism". He has written 4 books: THE CREATIVITY MANUAL, THE CREATIVITY HANDBOOK, THE WOLF MANIFESTO (which includes THE PHILOSOPHY OF THE WOLF essay) and THE WOTANIST BIBLE. The WOLF ESSAYS were used as inspiration for the following films: RAMPAGE, RAMPAGE 2 - Capital Punishment, RAMPAGE 3 - President Down, and ASSAULT ON WALL STREET. He holds a medical degree from East Peoria, Ill. in Salubrious Medicine, and has a doctorate of philosophy from New Hampshire. He has done 11 years in the JOG's concentration camp system, always staying true to his Faith!

The ORDER OF NATIONAL-SOCIALISM (The ONS) was founded in 1993 by Rev. Dr. Hardy Lloyd as a spiritual and philosophical organization. It is a world wide, decentralized, order who follow the philosophical teachings of Dr. Lloyd, Nazi Mysticism and Traditional Fascism as well as the philosophies of BEN KLASSEN, Julius Evola, Francis Parker Yockey, Giovoni Gentili, Rene Guenon, Savitri Devi, Miguel Serano, Adolf Hitler, Joseph Paul Franklin, Nietzsche, George Lincoln Rockwell, Strasser, Mussolini and LaVey. It was founded with the following mandates: 1) To spread the spiritual and philosophical teachings of Nazism and Fascism. 2) To unite ALL PEOPLES under Third Position in a World Union of Fascists. 3) To save the European Race from extinction. Followers believe that the JEWS are the physical manifestation of the negative force (evil), and that European Civilization is the positive force (good) created to stop them. Followers honour their Ancestors daily, live by the tenets of Nazism, and believe in martyrdom for the furtherance of the sacred Jihad the complete eradication of world jewry, zionism, communism, judaism, the JOG (lost estados unidos, canuckastan + england) and christ-insanity.

The CHURCH OF BEN KLASSEN, formerly known as the CHURCH OF CREATIVITY, was founded by Dr. Lloyd in 2003, with the renaming in 2015. This small church, with followers in several countries, was started as a breakaway from the WORLD CHURCH OF THE CREATOR (now known as the CREATIVITY MOVEMENT). Dr. Lloyd is the PM, or Grand High Priest of the church. Lloyd's church allowed for a third church of Creativity to exist during a rather bleak era in White Civil Rights. The CoBK is run not as a political organization, nor as a membership group. The CoBK is run as an old-school, though radical and extreme, church. In 2021 the Church was relaunched with renewed purpose!

The WHITE PITTSBURGH FRONT (The WPF) was co-founded by Dr. Lloyd, Isaac Skipworth, George + Bob of the KSS and Billy, a former NSM member…. It was formed in 2003 and continues today. It focuses on street activism, mostly Skinhead, in Western PA and Eastern Ohio. It is most active in Pittsburgh, Johnstown and Cleveland. They hold a yearly picnic and flier drive each Spring and Summer. Hardy Lloyd is still an associate, but no longer deals with leadership. The WPF was involved in the great fight at the MOOSE bar, and was later found to not have broken any laws. It is an association and NOT a membership group!

NOTE: Fascism and Nazism are multi-racial, multi-ethnic philosophies. Rev. Dr. Lloyd has networked with ALL RACES from dozens of countries!! He has family and komrades in Latin Amerika, and is ethnically Latin (AKA: Nordic Hispanic, or sometimes referred to as White Latinos. The German looking folks on Telemundo would be an example.). Also note that Creativity embraces ALL EUROPEANS, no matter their nationality or ethnicity! WE COMPLETELY REJECT ANY AND ALL FORMS OF NORDACISM!!

Joseph Goebbels

Paul Joseph Goebbels was born on October 29, 1897, in Rheydt, Germany, an industrial city located in the Rhineland. Because of a club foot that he acquired during a childhood bout with osteomyelitis, a swelling of the bone marrow, the young Goebbels was exempted from service in the German army during World War I (1914-18). Instead, he attended a series of German universities, where he studied literature and philosophy, among other subjects, and went on to earn a Ph.D. in German philology from Heidelberg University.

In the first half of the 1920s, after unsuccessfully attempting to establish a career as a journalist, novelist and playwright, Goebbels became a member of the National Socialist German Workers’ (Nazi) Party, which promoted German pride and anti-Semitism. Goebbels eventually became acquainted with the organization’s leader, Adolf Hitler. At this time, inflation had wrecked the German economy, and the morale of the German citizenry, who had been defeated in World War I, was low. Hitler and Goebbels were both of the opinion that words and images were potent devices that could be used to exploit this discontent. Hitler was impressed with Goebbels’ ability to communicate his thoughts in writing, while Goebbels was enamored of Hitler’s talent for speaking in front of large crowds and employing words and gestures to play on German nationalistic pride.

Rise to Nazi Power

Goebbels quickly ascended the ranks of the Nazi Party. First he broke away from Gregor Strasser (1892-1934), the leader of the more anti-capitalistic party bloc, who he initially supported, and joined ranks with the more conservative Hitler. Then, in 1926, he became a party district leader in Berlin. The following year, he established and wrote commentary in Der Angriff (The Attack), a weekly newspaper that espoused the Nazi Party line.

In 1928, Goebbels was elected to the Reichstag, the German Parliament. More significantly, Hitler named him the Nazi Party propaganda director. It was in this capacity that Goebbels began formulating the strategy that fashioned the myth of Hitler as a brilliant and decisive leader. He arranged massive political gatherings at which Hitler was presented as the savior of a new Germany. In a masterstroke, Goebbels oversaw the placing of movie cameras and microphones at pivotal locations to accentuate Hitler’s image and voice. Such events and maneuverings played a pivotal role in convincing the German people that their country would regain its honor only by giving unwavering support to Hitler.

Propoganda Minister

In January 1933, Hitler became the German chancellor, and in March of that year he appointed Goebbels the country’s minister for public enlightenment and propaganda. In this capacity, Goebbels had complete jurisdiction over the content of German newspapers, magazines, books, music, films, stage plays, radio programs and fine arts. His mission was to censor all opposition to Hitler and present the chancellor and the Nazi Party in the most positive light while stirring up hatred for Jewish people.

In April 1933, at Hitler’s directive, Goebbels orchestrated a boycott on Jewish businesses. The following month, he was a guiding force in the burning of “un-German” books in a public ceremony at Berlin’s Opera House. The works of dozens of writers were destroyed, including German-born authors Erich Maria Remarque (1898-1970), Arnold Zweig (1887-1968), Thomas Mann (1875-1955), Albert Einstein (1879-1955) and Heinrich Mann (1871-1950), and such non-Germans as Émile Zola (1840-1902), Helen Keller (1880-1968), Marcel Proust (1871-1922), Upton Sinclair (1878-1968), Sigmund Freud (1856-1939), H. G. Wells (1866-1946), Jack London (1876-1916) and André Gide (1869-1951).

In September 1933, Goebbels became director of the newly formed Reich Chamber of Culture, whose mission was to control all aspects of the creative arts. An offshoot of the formation of the chamber was the forced unemployment of all Jewish creative artists, including writers, musicians and theater and film actors and directors. Because the Nazis viewed modern art as immoral, Goebbels instructed that all such “decadent” art be confiscated and replaced by works that were more representational and sentimental in content. Then in October came the passage of the Reich Press Law, which ordered the removal of all Jewish and non-Nazi editors from German newspapers and magazines.

At the start of World War II in 1939, Goebbels was entrusted with the task of uplifting the spirit of the German people and employing the media, and specifically the cinema, to convince the population to support the war effort. A typical project he instigated was “Der ewige Jude,” also known as “The Eternal Jew” (1940), a propaganda film that ostensibly charted the history of the Jews. In the film, however, Jews are depicted as parasites who disrupt an otherwise tidy world.Goebbels also orchestrated the production of “Jud Süss” (1940), a feature film depicting the life of Josef Süss Oppenheimer (1698-1738), a Jewish financial consultant who collected taxes for Duke Karl Alexander of Württemberg (1684-1737), ruler of the Duchy of Württemberg, in the early 18th century. After the duke’s sudden death, Oppenheimer was put on trial and executed. Under Goebbels’s stewardship of the project, the story of Jud Süss was transformed from a human tragedy to an allegory about Jewish self-importance and greed.

As the war plodded on and German casualties mounted, Goebbels became a proponent of an all-out battle to the death against the Allied forces. In this regard, he employed his own abilities as a public speaker to further incite the German populace. On one occasion, in August 1944, speaking from the Sports Palace in Berlin, he commanded the German people to support a total war effort. If Germany was destined to lose the war, he reasoned, it was fitting that the German nation and people be obliterated.

As 1944 segued into 1945, the German defeat seemed inevitable to the Nazi regime. While other Nazi higher-ups made contact with the Allies in the hope of negotiating lenient treatment after the German surrender, Goebbels remained steadfastly devoted to Hitler.

During the last days of April 1945, as Soviet troops were on the threshold of Berlin, Hitler was holed up in his bunker. Goebbels was the lone senior Nazi official at his side. On April 30, Hitler committed suicide at age 56 and Goebbels replaced him as Germany’s chancellor. However, Goebbels’ reign was short-lived. The following day, he and his wife, Magda (1901-45), fatally poisoned their six children. The couple then took their own lives, although accounts of exactly how they died vary.

Joseph Goebbels > Quotes

&ldquoOne always feels the need to wash one’s hands after being forced to deal with the methods of U.S. interventionism. It is so unpleasant and filthy that one shudders. When one hears the pious nonsense of the Jewish-led world plutocracy over the radio or reads it in the press, one need only to look behind the scenes to feel pity for the miseries of mankind. That such a man has the impudence to judge us, to call on God and the world as witnesses of the purity of his deeds, to incite war and send innocent people singing “Onward Christian Soldiers” to battle for his filthy financial interests can only fill anyone with even the most primitive sense of decency with the deepest horror. Were there only such people in the world, one would have to despise humanity.

"Mr. Roosevelt Cross-Examined", 30 November 1941&rdquo
― Joseph Goebbels

&ldquoI believe that history has meaning. The misfortunes that have struck us cannot destroy this faith. I am certain that the Führer will find a way out of the dilemma, and that only then will the outwardly lost meaning of this war be renewed. The tests that we have to withstand today are enormous and put the German people through trials it has only seldom faced in its history. Nonetheless we must stand firm, or else everything will be lost. This war will be decided one second before midnight. Should we lay down our weapons before that, things can only go against us. Each of us knows what that would mean. Our enemy has told us that himself often and openly enough so that no one any longer can have the least doubt. If one of us now and again forgets that in the midst of the war’s events and surrenders himself and the nation to common disaster, he must be taught better by friendly reminder or firm warning. It is no time to forgive weakness or faintheartedness. Our focus is entirely and only on our people, which is in the midst of a severe life crisis. Only we can resolve this crisis. If we succeed, we win everything if we fall, we lose everything.

“Risking One’s Own Life“, Das Reich, 15 April 1945.&rdquo
― Joseph Goebbels

&ldquoWho is it that drives the Russians, the English, and the Americans into battle and sacrifices huge numbers of human lives in a hopeless struggle against the German people? The Jews! Their newspapers and radio broadcasts spread the songs of war while the nations they have deceived are led to the slaughter. Who is it that invents new plans of hatred and destruction against us every day, making this war into a dreadful case of self-mutilation and self-destruction of European life and its economy, education and culture? The Jews! Who devised the unnatural marriage between England and the USA on one side and Bolshevism on the other, building it up and jealously ensuring its continuance? Who covers the most perverse political situations with cynical hypocrisy from a trembling fear that a new way could lead the nations to realize the true causes of this terrible human catastrophe? The Jews, only the Jews! They are named Morgenthau and Lehmann and stand behind Roosevelt as a so-called brain trust. They are named Mechett and Sasoon and serve as Churchill’s moneybags and order givers. They are named Kaganovitsch and Ehrenburg and are Stalin’s pacesetters and intellectual spokesmen. Wherever you look, you see Jews. They march as political commissars behind the Red army and organize murder and terror in the areas conquered by the Soviets. They sit behind the lines in Paris and Brussels, Rome and Athens, and fashion their reins from the skin of the unhappy nations that have fallen under their power.

“Die Urheber des Unglücks der Welt,” Das Reich, 21 January 1945&rdquo

Total War-Göbbels Sport Palast Speech

Like all delusional leaders, Hitler would not have been able to carry out his plans without having people around him that encouraged his delusional ideas.

Göbbels was without a shadow of a doubt Hitler’s most devoted henchman and enabler.

On February 18,1943 he gave his most famous speech in the Sport Palast in Berlin. The aim of the speech was to convince the German people of a Total war, statig that a total war would be a shorter war. At least that is what the banners over the podium said.

At this stage the tide of World War II was turning against Germany. Göbbels held his speech at the Berlin Sportpalast to a carefully selected audience of 14,000 party officials, war veterans, workers, and women. Millions of other Germans listened to the speech via radio.

Below is the English translation of the main part of the speech and also the recorded audio version of the speech.

2Let me, to establish what the truth is, ask a number of questions of you, my fellow Germans, which you must answer me to the best of your knowledge and convictions. When my listeners indicated their spontaneous approval of my demands of January 30, the British press the next day claimed that it had been a propaganda spectacle, and was not representative of the true mood of the German people.
Well, to this meeting today I invited a cross section, in the best sense of that word, of the German people. In front of me there sit, row on row, wounded soldiers from the eastern front, men with scarred bodies, with amputated legs or arms, men blinded in action who have come here with their Red Cross nurses, men in the prime of life whose crutches are standing in front of them. In between, I count as many as 50 wearers of the Oak Leaf Cluster and of the Knight’s Cross, a splendid delegation from our fighting front. Behind them, there is a block of armaments workers, from Berlin’s armored car factory. Behind them, there sit men from the various party organizations, soldiers from our fighting forces, physicians, scientists, artists, engineers, architects, teachers, officials, civil servants from their offices and studies, proud representatives of our intellectual life on all its levels, to whom the country at this time of war owes miracles of inventiveness and human genius. Distributed over the entire auditorium of the Sports Palace I see thousands of German women. Youth is represented, and so is venerable age. No estate, no profession, no age group was overlooked when our invitations went out. Thus I can properly say that facing me is a cross section of the entire German people, at the front and at home. Is that correct?

Then you, my listeners, are representing the nation at this moment. And it is you whom I would like to ask ten questions. Give me your answers, along with the German people, before the whole world, but particularly before our enemies.

The British claim that the German nation has lost its faith in victory. I ask you: Do you believe, with the Führer and with us, in the final, total victory of the German people? I ask you: Are you resolved to follow the Führer through thick and thin in the pursuit of victory, even if this should mean the heaviest of contributions on your part?

Second. The British claim that the German nation is tired of the struggle. I ask you: Are you prepared to continue this struggle with grim determination, and undeterred by any circumstance decreed by fate, to continue it with the Führer, as the phalanx of the home front behind our fighting armies, until victory is ours?

Third. The British claim that the Germans are no longer in a mood to accept the ever increasing amount of war work demanded of them by the government. I ask you: Are you, and the German nation, resolved to work ten, twelve, and if need be fourteen or sixteen hours a day, if the Führer should command it, and to give your all for victory?

Fourth. The British claim that the German nation is resisting the government’s measures of total war, that what the Germans want is not total war but surrender. I ask you: Do you want total war? Do you want it, if need be, even more total and radical than we are capable of imagining it today?

Fifth. The British claim that the German nation has lost its confidence in the Führer. I ask you: Is your confidence in the Führer more passionate, more unshakable than ever? Is your readiness to follow him on all his paths, and to do whatever is necessary to bring the war to a successful conclusion, absolute and unlimited?

I ask you my sixth question. Are you prepared henceforth to devote your entire strength to providing the Eastern front with the men and materials it needs to give Bolshevism its mortal blow?

I ask you my seventh question. Do you swear a solemn oath to the fighting front that the country stands behind it, its morale high, and will give it everything necessary to achieve victory?

I ask you my eighth question. Do you, especially you, the women yourselves, want the government to see to it that German women, too, give all their energies to the pursuit of the war, filling jobs wherever possible to free men for action and thus to help their men at the front?

I ask you my ninth question. Do you approve, if necessary, the most radical of measures against a small group of draft-dodgers and blackmarketeers, who play peace in the midst of war, and mean to exploit people’s sufferings for their own selfish purposes? Do you agree that a person who interferes with the war effort shall lose his head?

As my tenth and last question I ask you: Is it your wish that even in wartime, as the party program commands, equal rights and equal duties shall prevail, that the home front shall give evidence of its solidarity and take the same heavy burdens of war upon its shoulders, and that the burdens be distributed equitably, whether a person be great or small, poor or rich?

I have asked you. You have given me your answers. You are a part of the nation your response has thus shown the attitude of the German people. You have told our enemies what they must know lest they abandon themselves to illusions and misinformation. “

The Bible offers two explanations of the name Yosef: first, it is compared to the word asaf from the root /'sp/, "taken away": "And she conceived, and bore a son and said, God hath taken away my reproach" Yosef is then identified with the similar root /ysp/, meaning "add": "And she called his name Joseph and said, The LORD shall add to me another son." [7] The Jewish Encyclopedia says that it is a theophoric name referencing YHWH. [8] The name can also consist of the Hebrew yadah meaning "praise", "fame" and the word asaf. [ citation needed ]


Lida Baarová: Her Fall And Her Redemption

When World War II ended, Lída Baarová immediately attempted to return to Berlin. Arrested at the border by U.S. military police, she was extradited to Czechoslovakia. For 18 months, she faced a death sentence in Pankrac prison, trying to survive on the barest of rations.

After being released for lack of evidence, she learned that her family had been persecuted because of her association with Goebbels. Her mother had died of a heart attack while being interrogated. Unable to face the contempt of her colleagues, her sister had jumped out of a window and committed suicide.

While other actors of her era managed to resuscitate their careers after the fall of the Third Reich, Lída Baarová never escaped the shadow of the Nazis. She did continue to work. She was even cast in prestigious films like I Vitelloni directed by Federico Fellini. Rainer Werner Fassbinder gave her a role in the touring production of The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant.

Still, she was shunned and unforgiven by many. In 1967, she was greeted at the Graz Theatre by protesters throwing eggs.

Some time in the early 1990s, after a political shift in the country, Lída Baarová returned to the Czech Republic and published her autobiography, Života sladké hořkosti (A Life of Sweet Bitterness). In 1995, she was interviewed by Helena Trestikova for a television documentary.

Smoking cigarette after cigarette, with hands shaky from Parkinson’s disease, she repeatedly circled around her unfortunate affair with Joseph Goebbels. “I loved him in my own way,’ she ruefully confessed, “I was very young and you are very susceptible at that age … He loved me so deeply, that I fell in love with love itself.”

Lída Baarová died in 2000, at the age of 86, in Salzburg. She had no children, though she was married twice after the furor over her notorious affair died down. In 2016, a film based on her life — The Devil’s Mistress — was made in the Czech Republic. It starred Tatiana Pauhofová as Baarová and Karl Markovics as Joseph Goebbels.
