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 !

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
