The German ‘Master Race’ Myth

Hitler on Race

Tripartate Agreement“I promise you I am quite free from all racial hatred. It is, in any case, undesirable that one race should mix with other races. Except for a few gratuitous successes, which I am prepared to admit, systematic cross-breeding has never produced good results. Its desire to remain racially pure is a proof of the vitality and good health of a race. Pride in one’s own race – and that does not imply contempt for other races – is also a normal and healthy sentiment. I have never regarded the Chinese or Japanese as being inferior to ourselves. They belong to ancient civilizations, and I admit freely that their past history is superior to our own. They have the right to be proud of their past, just as we have the right to be proud of the civilization to which we belong. Indeed, I believe the more steadfast the Chinese and the Japanese remain in their pride of race, the easier I shall find it to get on with them.”

‘Master Race’ a term never used during the Third Reich

It was conveniently ‘assumed’ at Nuremberg that every word has only one meaning and can only be used in one sense, and has, therefore, only one translation. The ‘translation’ is then treated as if it were engraved in stone, by God, on Mt. Sinai, and is introduced into evidence as “proof” of more accusations!

This is like judging a beauty contest, choosing a girl, and then using your own choice as ‘proof’ that the girl you chose is the most beautiful.

For example, ‘Master Race’ is not a correct translation of “Herrenvolk”. ‘Volk’ is not the same as ‘Rasse.’ and ‘Herr’ is not necessarily ‘Master.’ For example, the Jews will admit to being a ‘Volk.’ but never a ‘Rasse.’

What would happen if you translated the Gettysburg Address into German using ‘Rasse’ instead of ‘Volk’? Herrenvolk is not Eroberervolk (a people or nation of conquerors). It is not Versklavervolk (a people, nation or tribe of enslavers). It is not Ausbeutervolk (a nation of exploiters). It is not Sklavenherrenvolk (a nation of slave masters). It is just, simply… Herrenvolk. (Further, ‘slave master’ in German is not ‘Herr’ anyway, it is ‘Sklavenherr’. The word ‘Sklavenherr’ does exist, but it is so rare that it is almost impossible to find on the Internet. The only place it can be found is in a translation from Cicero.)

German Racialism - SS StandartenfuhrerIt is worth noting in this regard, that Germany is the only country in Europe which never had anything to do with the trans-Atlantic slave trade and in actual fact, has been involved in fewer wars than any other country in Europe.

The most obvious meaning of ‘Herrenvolk’ is a nation of people possessing ‘Volksherrschaft,’ or popular government (and, presumably, a ‘Volkswirtschaft’ is a somewhat nationalist or socialist economy).

The term ‘Herrenvolk’ implies that the ‘Volk,’ ie; the working class, are placed on a level of equality or are identified with the ‘Herren’ ie; the middle classes, the bourgeoisie; a society in which Volk = Herren. This was the essential concept of National Socialism: a unification of the Socialist and Nationalist movements: that manual workers and intellectual workers – “die Arbeiter der Stirne und die Arbeiter der Faust” – would realize that they needed each other, and treat each other with respect.

‘Herr’ simply means a gentleman. Naturally, a gentleman may be ‘master’ of something, but this begs the question – “Master of What”?

Germany in the 1920s and 30s was not 18th century England or France, it was not Renaissance Italy or the ante-bellum South. A “gentleman” in Germany was not a useless member of a landed aristocracy, losing fortunes at dice and cards, fighting duels with sword and pistol –  a German ‘gentleman’ was usually someone who had passed certain state exams and had a claim on prestige by virtue of his education. He usually had very little money, and almost no real power. He may have been ‘Master’ (Herr) in a Master-Servant relationship (Herr-Dienerverhältnis) with a cook or housekeeper, but he was not really a person of any real power. Instead, he had a claim to respect.

‘Herr’ is a term of respect. To address or describe someone as ‘Herr’ is a compliment.
Generally speaking, there are 5 meanings of the word “Herr”.

  1. Man
  2. Gentleman
  3. Master (not in the sense of “dancing master or master cabinet-maker”, that is“Meister”)
  4. Lord
  5. God (“Herr im Himmel”).

There are 4 main meanings of the word ‘Volk’

  1. nation
  2. people
  3. race [usually in a more or less figurative sense, i.e., the English race, Irish race, etc.]
  4. tribe.

, from Herr = Volk, you have 20 possible combinations, where literal translations are concerned… ‘A Nation of Men’ or a ‘Nation of Gentlemen’ just for two examples.

What is a gentleman? Well, first of all, gentleman is a man, with everything that implies: courage, strength, self-reliance, reliability, acceptance of responsibility. To be a ‘gentleman’ implies, in addition, a certain sense of chivalry, of honour, of self-respect. Thus, a ‘Nation of Men/Gentlemen’ is a nation possessing self-respect and demanding respect from others. A Nation of Gentlemen is a nation which causes itself to be respected.

In Italy, ‘un uomo che si fa rispettare’ is somebody to be careful of. The same is true of nations. The National Socialists talked a great deal about “fremde Herrschaft” (foreign rule) and “Zinsknechtschaft” (interest rate bondage). A ‘Knechtvolk’ is a subservient people, a nation of serfs.

A ‘Herrenvolk’ is just the opposite.  The American equivalent to this concept is expressed by the rattlesnake flag: “Don’t Tread on Me”.

A gentleman may be ‘master’ of very little in a material sense, but one thing is for certain: he is master of himself. He is independent, he possesses ‘Selbstbeherrschung’ – self-control. He is ‘Herr der Lage’ master of the situation. He is ‘Herr im Haus’ – master in his own house.

To be “master in your own house” in a nationhood sense, means that you will not be kicked around by foreigners.

In the 1943-45 film, Kolberg, the most expensive National Socialist film ever made, the mayor of a small town during the Napoleonic wars received a letter from Napoleon asking him to surrender. Napoleon doesn’t consider it worthwhile sending an army after them, so they are conquered by mail order! The mayor, Joachim von Nettelbeck, played by the great German actor Heinreich George, says, “Knecht sein im eigenen Haus, wo man Herr sein könnte” – “to be a servant in your own house, where you could be the master”.

Thus, a ‘Herrenvolk’ is a ‘people (Volk) who are ‘Master’ (Herr) in their own house.

By Contrast – What the ‘Jewish Race’ has to say…

kalegri-2The Jews refer to the remainder of Earths inhabitants, the non-Jewish peoples, as “Gentiles”or “Goyim” – to be treated as cattle or slaves, where murder, rape or mistreatment of the Goyim, is not a crime, but commanded and considered as an acceptable and a pleasing sacrifice to God.

Menachem Begin, 6th Prime Minister of Israel
“Our race is the ‘Master Race’ – We are divine gods on this planet. We are as different to the inferior races as they are from insects… other races are beasts and animals, cattle at best. Our destiny is to rule over the inferior races. The masses will lick our feet and serve us as slaves.”

Benzion Netanyahu, father of current Israeli Prime Minister,Benyamin, stated in a 2009 interview;
“…there are no two peoples here, there is a Jewish people and a Palestinian population… There is no Palestinian people, so you don’t create a state for an imaginary people. They only call themselves people in order to fight the Jews.”

The Pot Calling the Kettle Black

With this kind of ideology, is it of any surprise that the German Nation wanted to protect itself from alien elements within its borders and to preserve its own race?

Self-Preservation is not Racial Superiority
