In October 1935 Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels peremptorily announced that ‘It is forbidden to list the names of fallen Jews on memorials and memorial plaques for the fallen of the world war.’ According to Nazi ideology a Jew, even a Jew who had died for Germany, was not a real German. Following Goebbels’ edict, some war memorials duly underwent ‘Aryanisation’. At Heilbronn a memorial was dedicated in March 1936, but the names of the Jewish war dead had been chiselled out and replaced with those of First World War battles.

In August 1914 the leading institutions of the German-Jewish community had endorsed the patriotic cause. A Berlin orthodox synagogue introduced a special prayer imploring God to ‘Help our king … our people, [and] … our fatherland’. In the ensuing conflict 100,000 German Jews enlisted. Yet, as conditions deteriorated, antisemitism flourished. Jews were accused of profiteering, of avoiding military service, even of spying. In October 1916 War Minister Adolf Wild von Hohenborn, a Prussian, under pressure from antisemitic groups, commissioned a census of Jewish soldiers to ascertain how many were serving at the front. The ZVfD (Zionist Organisation for Germany) rightly considered this initiative ‘a flagrant abuse of the honour and the civic equality of German Jewry’.

The end of hostilities brought little relief. Many Germans held Jews responsible for both defeat and revolution. The fact that some of the revolutionary leaders were Jewish, notably Kurt Eisner and Rosa Luxemburg, encouraged some commentators to contend that the German army had not been defeated but undermined from within (the myth of the ‘stab in the back’ or Dolchstoss Legende).

‘All Jews are shirkers’ was a recurrent motif. The Völkischer Beobachter offered a thousand marks to anyone who could name a Jewish mother who had had three sons at the front for more than three weeks. In 1919, in similar vein, Otto Armin (the pen name of Alfred Roth) published what he claimed were the results of the War Ministry census. According to Armin they showed that, for every Jewish soldier who had died, over 300 non-Jewish Germans had been killed. ‘The notion of the selfless devotion to the people and the fatherland has no place among them’, he concluded. Jacob Segall refuted Armin’s allegations, pointing out that 12,000 German-Jewish soldiers had died during the war. The RJF (Association of Jewish Frontline Soldiers) also highlighted their military contribution.

Concerning the commemoration of German-Jewish soldiers’ wartime endeavours, the author identifies two contrasting narratives. On the one hand there were the ‘aggressive myths of the war experience’, elaborated by the National Socialists and others. These ‘sectional narratives of the conflict’ downplayed or disputed their contribution. In Mein Kampf Hitler claimed that they had completely avoided front-line service. In October 1933 the Kyffhäuserbund, an ex-serviceman’s association aligned with the National Socialists, duly removed Jewish veterans from its membership list. When the Tannenberg National Memorial Association issued guidelines for a design competition in 1925, only German and German-blooded architects were invited to apply.

But Dr Grady also identifies a ‘national conservative’ reading of the German-Jewish soldiers’ wartime sacrifice. According to President Paul von Hindenburg, anyone ‘good enough to fight and to die for Germany’ should be exempted from the 1933 law which removed Jews from public service. In July 1934 Hindenburg also insisted that a new war medal be awarded to all ex-servicemen or their surviving relatives with no racial or religious exceptions.

Hindenburg’s death in August 1934 all but terminated this national conservative interpretation of the war and his protection of Jewish war veterans. They were dismissed from public service and excluded from German citizenship. Veteran status subsequently conferred no protection on German Jews in the Holocaust. Grady records that one soldier badly wounded at Verdun committed suicide in Berlin en route to a concentration camp. Yet, bizarrely, the city authorities in Hamburg (and in several other towns and cities) continued to maintain the German-Jewish section of the war cemetery throughout the Second World War.
Nationalist narratives, as historian Lucy Riall has observed, invariably combine invention with reality, as the story of the German-Jewish soldiers bears witness.

DIE JUDISCHEN GEFALLENEN
A Roll of Honor Commemorating the 12,000 German Jews
Who Died for their Fatherland in World War I.


After several years of work, the RAJCV has drawn up, ten years after the end of the Great War, the foregoing list of Jewish servicemen killed in action in the German Army, the German Navy, and the German Colonial Forces.


First of all, a list of Jewish KIAs was put together by asking Jewish congregations and local chapters of the RAJCV. Then, in 1928/29 this list was published in weekly installments in the official bulletin of the RAJCV, the “ Shield,” in order to correct any possible errors and to complete the list.


After appropriate preparatory steps we approached the Central Records Office for War Casualties and War Graves in Spandau, where the names of all casualties from the German Army, the German Navy, and Colonial Troops are kept. We were able to verify 10,060 of the 10,623 names that we had on our list.

Of the 10,623 names on our list, we were able to verify 10,060 from the lists and card files at the Spandau office. And so the 10,060 names published here correspond to the 10,060 names found in the official casualty records. Of the remaining names, 94 were confirmed from local Registry Offices. As a result, a total of 10,154 names, that is 95.6%, have been verified from official records.

(1)That leaves 469 names that are mentioned only in the records of Jewish congregations. We have not been able to confirm any of these names with either the Central Records Office or with local Registry Offices. These names have been listed separately in the Appendix. The main list contains only Jewish casualties, meaning those who were officially listed as belonging to the Jewish faith at the time of death. For this reason, many of the fallen are not listed because at the time of death they had abandoned their faith. An example of this is the well-known fighter pilot Wilhelm Frankl from Frankfurt am Main.



Experience with further investigation has shown that these lists should not be considered as final. So, for example, after we had prepared, in collaboration with our friend Dr. Theilhaber, the second edition of the book, (2) augmented with 125 Jewish airmen who had flown in combat, suddenly 50 more names came in. It is therefore to be assumed that the present edition will elicit numerous further reports of Jewish KIAs from all over the country. Therefore we have set up a system to easily file the additional names that are to be expected. These supplements will permit the as yet incomplete casualty lists to include those who died after the Armistice.


Indeed, the Central Records Office informed us after our initial inquiry that the registration of war casualties would include all those who could be proven to have died in veterans’ hospitals as a result of war wounds up to June 28, 1920, that is, one year after the peace agreement. The well-known German total casualty figure of 1,880,000 was determined in this manner. We were only able to add 325 names after the Armistice, of which 112 were found in the Spandau records. Countless numbers of unquestionable war victims could not be recorded because at the time of death they had no relation with the military.

Also, from the nearly 125,000 men missing in action, the only ones that could be listed were those who had been legally declared dead or those for whom official inquiries were called off as futile. A large percentage of those who were missing in action, but whose names did not make the official reports, must be left out until individual cases can be clarified at a later date by application to the Central Records Office.

Surely among these, our co-religionists, who number in the hundreds, will come to light. In addition, it must be pointed out that, due to regulations in force at the time and for procedural reasons, only a comparison with our incomplete list could be carried out. It was not possible for us to complete our lists based on a thorough examination of the records. And here something must be said regarding the relation of this list to the two earlier


statistical assessments regarding the number of Jewish servicemen killed in action.


It is known that during the war a so-called “Jewish Count” was set up by army headquarters. According to this count, 3411 Jews were supposed to have been killed in action by Nov. 1, 1916, while the total number of Germans killed in action by that date amounted to 906,625. According to this assessment, the total number of Jewish casualties by the end of the war could have been not more than 6,000, a number which does not hold true numerically and simply indicates how inaccurate the “Jewish Count” was.

When one can see that today, twelve years after the end of the war, there is a list of over 10,000 Jewish servicemen killed in action, of which every single one has been verified by official records, it shows that the numbers used then and the count derived from them did a grave injustice to the Jewish people.

(3) Between 1917 and 1921 a census was undertaken on behalf of the great Jewish organizations, lead by Dr. Jacob Segall and under the direction of the director of the Berlin State Statistical Office, Dr. Heinrich Silbergleit. This work, (4) carried out under the greatest of difficulties, revealed the following: of the 555,000 Jews living in the Reich in 1914, 100,000 served during the war in the Army, Navy, and Colonial Troops and 12,000 remained on the field of honor.



Not counting the regions of Hamburg, the Province of Posen and Alsace-Lorraine, 10,089 Jewish KIAs were counted. Based on this number and after painstaking evaluation by Silbergleit and Segall, it was determined that proportionately another 2,000 from these areas could be added to the total number. So, the total number would be 12,000 Jewish servicemen killed in action.

It is interesting to compare the earlier results with the list we have today. If we subtract the 1007 that we were able to identify from those regions, even today only partly accessible to us, then 9616 names remain, that is 4.68% less than the former statistical investigation had yielded. This difference is, on the one hand, of minor significance, in view of cessions of territory which have occurred since, and their corresponding obstacles to our investigation, and on the other hand in view of the high percentage of verified names. Our efforts form an excellent -



confirmation of the findings of Jewish Committees for War Statistics, and from these results one can assume as a fact that war casualties from German Jews amounted to 12,000 killed in action.

This number, given all that was said above, can be seen as rather too low and represents a questionable minimum quantity. (5) We would like at this point to thank all the Jewish agencies and organizations that have significantly and materially supported our efforts.

Our appreciation is also extended to the national, regional, and city agencies which at all times assisted us in a most valuable way; especially the Central Records Office in Spandau and its branch offices in Munich, Dresden and Stuttgart, whose extensive casualty lists, the result of fifteen years of comprehensive official organization and activity, made it possible for us to carry out our difficult comparison activities.

1. Some quite noteworthy facts were revealed in our lists. Among the 10,060 names we found 270 officers and 155 medical officers. As a result of this, there must have been 322 officers and 185 medical officers among the 12,000 Jews killed in action. In addition 30 of the fallen were airmen who died a pilot’s death.

2.“Jewish Fliers in the World War” by Dr. Felix A. Theilhaber; “The Shield,” Berlin 1924. - addenda 1932.

3.Official material was published in “Jews in the Army” by Otto Arnim (Alfred Roth); Deutscher Verlag Munich 1922.

4.“German Jews as Soldiers in the 1914/1918 War,” a statistical study by Dr. Jacob Segall, with a foreword by Prof. Dr. Heinrich Silbergleit; Philo-Verlag G. m. b. H., Berlin 1922
5.A comparison of this number with German totals is only possible when the peculiar social, occupational and demographic distribution of German Jews in the total population is taken into consideration. Among the German population, the urban and rural population distribution must have been worked out according to religion, profession, age even for war casualty figures, so that a comparison of average numbers can only lead to error. An example will clarify this: The 550,000 Jewish people with German citizenship in 1914 were predominantly living in big cities. If you compare this with the percentage of Germans living in cities, for example the population of Munich at the time was 645,000, you get the following results. Munich suffered 13,725 killed, while from the Jewish population of 555,000, 12,000 were killed. This gives a percentage of 2.1% killed for both populations. You get the same picture in other individual cases, to the extent the demographic relationships are fairly consistent

WILHELM FRANKL
Wilhelm Frankl is the most well known German Jewish fighter pilot of World War I. He was born in Hamburg on December 20, 1893, and his family later moved to Frankfurt-am-Main. After graduating from school, Frankl went to Germany’s famous aviation center at Johannisthal and took flying lessons from Germany's first female pilot, Melly Beese. After the war started he volunteered for the air service and proved to be an outstanding fighter pilot. In 1916 Frankl became engaged to the Christian daughter of an Austrian naval officer, and he made a controversial decision to convert to Christianity. Some say he converted to please his future wife, while others say he converted in the hope that he would have better career opportunities. (Jews in Germany were not allowed the same rights as Christians.)
In a short amount of time Frankl shot down several enemy planes, and soon afterwards his picture was featured on German postcards and he was hailed as a national hero. Frankl received the Pour-le-mérite (nicknamed the "Blue Max"), which was Germany's equivalent to America's Medal of Honor. He was made commander of his own squadron, Jasta 4.

Frankl was killed on April 8, 1917, when the Albatros D.III he was flying fell apart during combat over France. Just three days before he had shot down three enemy aircraft in one day, for a total of 19. He was buried in Berlin-Charlottenburg, but his grave has been lost to war and history. Frankl was excluded from Pour-le-mérite Flieger, Walter Zuerl's 1938 chronicle of German World War I fighter pilots who had received the Pour-le-mérite. In spite of his conversion, Frankl apparently was, in Nazi eyes, still a Jew.

In 1973 the West German Luftwaffe named a squadron after him.

FRIEDRICH RÜDENBERG

Friedrich Rüdenberg was born in 1892 in Hanover. As a young man he studied to become an electrical engineer, and he had just finished his courses and was preparing to take his state exams when the war started. Rüdenberg postponed his education and volunteered for duty. He applied to an aviation detachment and after completing the basic training started going on reconnaissance missions. He collected valuable data and was awarded the Iron Cross in mid-1917. Because of his excellent record, he was selected for fighter pilot school and after his training was assigned to Jagdstaffel 10, under Richthofen’s wing command. Toward the end of the war he was allowed to complete his education, and after the war he taught for several years at the university level. He eventually was made Technical Director of the Istanbul branch of General Electric, but in 1936 he was dismissed from his job because he was Jewish. He wisely decided not to return to Germany but instead immigrated to Palestine.

Whenever I ask, why "the evil Naaazis" did not destroy a single Jewish cemetery, people always go

:dunno: :dunno: :dunno:

Jewish cemeteries are the oldest you will find in the FRG, most are extremely well kept, by gentiles and the "state",
while the bones of Germans get thrown out of the earth (or just stacked one upon one) after at least 20 or thirty years,
and the place is let to the next who still can pay for it. Increasingly more Germans can't afford this and their remains
get burnt and burried in anonymous pauper's graves.

Whenever I ask, what they are doing with the bones that they dig up, to lease the place anew, people always go

Yes, I think you'll find that most of them are FRG, or from the former DDR Soviet side. I'm not big on war monument history though, so I could be wrong? Oracle and PFIZ will know much more about it than me.

As you may well know already though many war monuments and anything that reminded the German people of the legacy of the Reich or ''Hitler's Germany'', was destroyed in the ''denazification'' process, and zealously replaced with monuments to communists and Jews. More Here

Out of respect for the Jewish Soldiers of WWI and WWII that fought for Germany, I think it's rather sad that their honour was stripped from them, at least the one's who fought bravely alongside German soldiers. I think it was wrong to dishonour them. However, they were gradually fazed out of serving in the Wehrmacht because of the high number of Jews that supported Communism, hence they became enemies of the state, and trust issues developed. The Nuremberg laws of 1935 forbid Jews to serve as officers in the Wehrmacht, though some still remained serving right through the second world war I believe? Grey area though, I don't think anybody is certain of the numbers.

The Reichsbund jüdischer Frontsoldaten (Reich Federation of Jewish Front Soldiers, RJF) was founded in Germany, February 1919, by Leo Löwenstein (Leo = lion, Löwenstein = lion stone).

Only German architecture and any kind of Germanic art was destroyed or looted and sold to rich ... persons.
Now the FRG is plastered with ... other monuments and "architecture", which clearly shows a completely different mindset,

“KNOWING THE NS STATE FOR WHAT IT WAS”
.
The significance of these Germans of Jewish descent serving the Third Reich has not been lost on the academic world: for example, the following quote from historian John Keegan in his review of Bryan Mark Rigg’s book:

“The revelation that Germans of Jewish blood, knowing the Nazi regime for what it was, served Hitler as uniformed members of his armed forces must come as a profound shock. It will surprise even professional historians of the Nazi years.” – John Keegan, author of The Face of Battle and The Second World War, (www.kansaspress.ku.edu/righit.html)

Keegan is of course, mistaken in the one sense, in that even a cursory study of NS racial laws will have revealed that the Blood Protection Law of 1935 make specific allowances for such cases, and only the general hysteria and ignorance of what the National Socialists actually said and did has allowed people to be “shocked” by the large number of part Jews serving the Reich.
.
The phrase “knowing the Nazi regime for what it was” above by Keegan, is however the real significant part: for indeed, if the NS regime really had been about mass-murdering, gassing and burning millions of Jews, it is extremely unlikely that these 150,000 prominent Germans of part-Jewish descent, would have served the Reich at all, never mind having made specific application to be granted full Aryan status – especially given that there were only approximately 600,000 full blooded Jews in NS Germany (about two million if one counts part-Jews).


…..Rasse ist viel, aber nicht alles

[Race is a lot, but not everything]

Melitta Schiller was born in 1903 in the then-German province of Posen in the town of Krotoschin. Her father came from a Jewish fur-wholesaler family, which had its seat in the Odessa, Ukraine area. Before the First World War he converted to the Protestant faith, then enlisted voluntarily in 1914 in the German Reichswehr and rose to become an officer, a captain, and receive the Iron Cross.

In 1929 Melitta began to take flying lessons and earned flight licenses for all aircraft types, including even seaplanes, as well as the stunt-flying license “K.2.”



In 1937 she earned the rank of Flugkapitän [air captain]., In 1938, in England, together with the aviatrix Elly Beinhorn, she represented the National Socialist Flying Corps.

After the outbreak of the Second World War Melitta, Countess Schenk von Stauffenberg was ordered to the test site of the Luftwaffe [Air Force]. By 1942, she had already performed on test planes 900 measured and filmed dive-bombing runs, mostly from 1,000-5,000 meters altitude [3-5k feet]. In February 1943, she became the fourth German woman to be awarded the Iron Cross and shortly thereafter, upon completing her 1,500th dive-bombing run, the Pilots Badge in Gold with Diamonds.



On April 8, 1945, she was transferring in a small, unarmed aircraft to a new duty station and was shot down by an American fighter plane near Straubing, Bavaria. The Luftwaffe buried her with full military honors.

So here was a half-Jewess fighting and giving her life for national socialism and then we see full whites who spend their time attacking me, their own comrade! More Here

FRITZ BECKHARDT

Fritz Beckhardt was from Wallertheim in Hesse. At the start of the war he volunteered for the infantry and later trained as a pilot in Hamburg and Hanover. He flew long-range reconnaissance missions and later received fighter pilot training and served with Jagdgeschwader 3, Jagdstaffel 26, and Kest 2. During the war Beckhardt received the Iron Cross (First Class), the House Order of Hohenzollern with Swords, the Hessian Medal of Bravery, the Hessian Order of Ernst Ludwig, the aviator's badge, a silver cup for bravery, and various badges for accomplishments and wounds. After Germany lost the war, Beckhardt refused to deliver his plane over to the enemy and instead flew it to Switzerland.



Fritz Beckhardt flew a Siemens Schuckert fighter with a swastika on it. Pilots on both sides flew planes adorned with swastikas, which during World War I represented the sun, good fortune, or just something interesting.

BERTHOLD GUTHMANN

Berthold Guthmann was born in 1893 and had just started his university studies when the war started. He volunteered for military service, as did his two brothers (one of whom was killed at Verdun). He became an observer and gunner on military aircraft and received the Iron Cross (Second Class), the Tapferkeitsmedaille (Medal for Bravery), and the Verwundetenabzeichen (the German equivalent of the Purple Heart). After the war he became a prominent attorney in Wiesbaden. In addition to being the secular leader of the Wiesbaden community during its most difficult years (1938-1942), Guthmann was second in charge of the Frankfurt Jewish congregation during its final months (1942-1943).

Berthold Guthmann had served Germany faithfully in its fledgling air force during World War I, but that made no difference to the Nazis. He was not seen as a German, a veteran, or a human being. In 1943 Guthmann and his family were arrested, split up, and sent to various concentration camps. Although Guthmann had saved Beckhardt's life a few years earlier through his plea to Hermann Goering, no one interceded on Guthmann's behalf, and he was killed at Auschwitz as if he had been nothing more than an insect.

The President of the Reich Berlin, October 3, 1932
Dear Dr. Lowenstein!

I express my cordial thanks to the Reich Association of Jewish Combat Veterans for their good wishes on my 85th birthday as well as for the gift of flowers and the Commemorative Album. I accept the book in respectful memory of those comrades from your ranks fallen for the Fatherland and will make it a part of my war library.

With comradely greetings!

The Reich Association of Jewish Combat Veterans
Attn: Dr. Lowenstein, Captain of the Reserves, Retired
Kurfurstendamm 200
Berlin W 15

The noblest German blood is that which is shed by German soldiers for Germany. To these also belong the 12,000 killed in action from German Jewry, who thereby earnestly in their turn successfully passed the test of blood in the German sense of the word. To the extent that their names could still be identified, they are perpetuated in this book, which their comrades who came home again respectfully dedicate to their memory.
