From the Trials --

Himmler, the holder of several offices, combined in one person the position of Reichsleiter of the Security Units (SS) and of Reich Commissioner for the Consolidation of Germanism (Reichskommissar fuer die Festigung des deutschen Volkstums). As such, he was charged with the leadership of all State and Party organs within Germany, which, in turn, controlled the German settlements, the work among the German Fascist minorities in other countries and the re-immigration of Germans into Germany.

In this field his executive apparatus was the so-called "Volksdeutsche Mittelstelle."

The leader of this organisation, and therefore the actual deputy of Himmler, in this special sphere was Obergruppenfuehrer S.S. Lorenz who will be discussed later.

Documents 13, 14, 15: The SS is accused of the legal

plundering of the occupied eastern territories. These

documents show that the laws in this respect were issued by

the Trustee for the Four-Year Plan, Goering, or the Minister

of the Interior, Frick. The Reich Commissioner for the

Consolidation of German Nationhood and the Office for Racial

Germans (Volksdeutsche Mittelstelle) were entrusted with the

resettlement and bringing back of Germans. This is shown by

Documents 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 22 and 23. Documents 25,

26, 30, 33, 34, 40, and Exhibit USA 674 I submit as evidence

that the Civil Service law, the

Documents 29, 36, 38, and 39 show that citizens of foreign

States, in so far as they were of German descent, were not

forcibly drafted into the Armies of their respective

countries, but into the Waffen SS. This was on the strength

of State agreements.

I've never run into any SS ID's from the "Volksdeutsche Mittelstelle." I know Rosenberg was involved in the Race and Resettlement program early on but , I don't know when Himmler to control ...a lot of reading ahead of me !

Curiously they not used Sutterlin .Regarding Volksdeutsche , Artur Plheps is a good example, Born in Transylvania when it belonged to Austria Hungary and of German ethnicity he was Imperial Officer in WW1 ,then Romanian ,reaching the rank of Romanian General ,he resigned for political reasons and when Romania enter in the War alongside Germany he returned to the military but inside the Waffen SS as all the Volksdeutschen who chosen not to stay into their national armies

    • I've never smoked a single cigarette in my 62 years so I can't compare, but I can say that I like Lapsang Souchong tea, having tasted it the first time when I was 16, and a sea cadet. I'm not a Brit, though.
    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
