- In 1997 James Bacque published his Crimes and Mercies,
which showed that more than nine million Germans (mostly civilians) died
as a result of Allied starvation and expulsion policies in the first five
years after World War II. These deaths were not accidental, but were the
result of deliberately genocidal policies instituted by Dwight Eisenhower
and Henry Morgenthau. They began planning for this in 1944, before the
extent of the atrocities of the death camps became known. (That more Germans
did not starve to death or die of illness in the post-war years was due
to the humanity of Herbert Hoover and others.) Awareness of this act of
genocide has been suppressed for fifty years not only by the Allied governments
but also by the German government.
- James Bacque: Did the Allies Starve Millions of Germans?
- Here is a review of James Bacque's Crimes and Mercies
- By Eric Blair -
- Crimes and Mercies: A Hidden Holocaust--Revealed
- Chapter VIII of the book: History and Forgetting.
- The book is available from Amazon US and also from Amazon
UK, where a reviewer writes:
- "Bacque's book is an amazing revelation of some
of the worst crimes ever committed in this century - the fact that they
were covered up for so long only makes it worse. After reading this book
you will ask yourself who the 'good guys' really were. The truth is that
there were no good guys - only amoral manipulators and criminals - on both
sides. [Well, actually, as Bacque makes clear, there were some good guys:
Herbert Hoover, Mackenzie King, Norman Robertson and Victor Gollancz among
others.] This is the book the establishment does not want you to read -
and with good reason! It tells of deliberate allied policy to 'reduce'
the German population after the war by mass starvation. Well, they succeeded,
by 5.7 million to be precise - this in addition to the 1.1 million starved
prisoners of war, 2.5 - 3 million murdered ethnic German refugees from
Eastern Europe and tens of thousands of civilian forced labourers killed
from maltreatement in France. Bacque's other excellent book - Other Losses
- gives more information about this hidden Holocaust. Order this book
now and forget the lies your history teacher told you - remember that history
is only the version as told by the winners."
- The book been translated into German as Der geplante
Tod and is available from amazon.de.
