LEBENSBORN PROGRAM PTII: NAZI KIDNAPPING OF CHILDREN

 Family Court Injustice has been documenting historical events and real life stories of children stolen from their families by unjust courts or through government and judicial policies and/or abuses of power. This article about the Lebensborn Program (1935-1945), Nazi Occupied Europe gives a glimpse into the Nazi eugenics program to create a “master race” that also included kidnapping and murder in it’s policies. 

“Lebensborn” meaning “fount of life” was a secret program implemented by the Nazis (1935-1945) with the goal of engineering a “master race”. Another part of Lebensborn included ridding the population of those considered “unwanted” or “subhuman” to further the Aryan race. The official purpose of Lebensborn was the “preservation and promotion of racially valuable Germanic hereditary property”.

Part I of the Lebensborn series includes information on women selected as “racially pure” who were chosen to bear children with SS officers and other Nazi officials. Most of the women (85%) participating in the Lebensborn program were single, the women were able to conceive in secrecy, and give up their babies for adoption without ridicule or public shame (which was the common response of that era). The children were pledged to the Nazi state, and the SS took charge of their education and adoption (small numbers of women did chose to raise their children). Lebenborn homes were also set up to become maternity homes and birthing centers for wives of Nazi officers. Read Part I here: https://familycourtinjustice.wordpress.com/2015/02/15/lebensborn-pt-i-nazi-program-breed-master-race/

Part II of the Lebensborn series is about the secret Nazi plan to kidnap children in order to “Germanize” them, creating future generations of soldiers and loyal servants to the Third Reich. In Poland alone, from 1940-1945, an estimated 200,000 Polish children living on the German occupied territory in Poland were forcibly taken from their families. An estimated 400,000 children were kidnapped from other parts of Europe including Poland, Russia, Ukraine, Czechoslovakia, Romania, Estonia, Latvia, Slovenia and Yugoslavia.

Kidnapped children were “Germanized”, meaning they were given a German name, forced to speak German, indoctrinated with Nazi ideology and forced to cut all ties with their family and former life. The children were given a new birth certificate, a fake genealogy, and adopted or fostered into German homes. Other children lived in institutions, state boarding schools or military camps. Younger children (ages birth to age 6) were cared for at Lebensborn homes until they could be adopted.

Children found to be “unwanted” or children who resisted “Germanization” were sent to slave labor camps or concentration camps, targeted for medical experimentation, or murdered. These medical experiments became the basis for the later MK Ultra and Operation Artichoke programs implemented by the US government, who had imported Nazi scientists after the war. 

 CHILDREN KIDNAPPED BY THE NAZIS:

The Nazi kidnapping of children was kept highly secret, and operated through 6 Nazi programs, all under the leadership of the SS.

When the Nazi could not breed enough “super race” children, the Nazis sought “racially valuable” children of non-German populations, meaning those with “Aryan” traits such as blond hair and blue or green eyes. Kidnapped children were taken by force, and by gunpoint. Force includes hunting children down in schools, parks and markets. Police came to homes with guns drawn to seize children. Some parents were told their children were being sent to work, and would return. Other children were just taken with no information given to parents. Some families hid children or smuggled them to safe places, to avoid the Nazis.

Once seized by the Nazis, children were sent to “children education camps” or Kindererziehungslager, which were used to test “racial values”. Children were given thorough medical exams, with their skulls measured, birthmarks meticulously analyzed, the color of hair or eyes considered, to determine eligibility.

The process to “Germanize” the children was brutal. Children were told their parents were dead or did not want them to get the children to reject their families. Children were told to forget their home, their country of origin and brainwashed into Nazi ideology. Children were given new German names; the names were often closely related to their real name, or German variations of their real name. The thought was a similar name would help the children feel more connected, and be able to better integrate. 

“Germanized” children were given a new name, new birth certificate, falsified genealogy and shipped into Germany to live in institutions or be adopted into German families. Younger children (ages 2-6) were sent to Lebensborn homes. German families were not told about the true origin of the children they adopted, and often accepted these children with love, and considered them their own. Other German families considered it their duty to raise children who were loyal to the Nazi state, and enforced Nazi ideology. Other children were held in boarding schools or institutions, and military camps, treatment of the children in these settings varied, many children reported abuse from caretakers.

The Nazis also took children from parents who were considered dissidents, resistance or enemies of the state. The parents were often murdered or sent to prisons or concentration camps. If the children were viewed as desirable, they were selected for “Germanization”. If not, the children were sent to concentration camps, slave labor camps or killed. For example, on July 25, 1942, Himmler ordered children from Slovenia to be seized and sent to Germany. Their fathers had been shot for resistance activities, and their mothers had been sent to concentration camps.

 Children who resisted “Germanization” were beaten, drugged, deprived of food and  if they did not comply, killed or sent to concentration camps. An untold number of children disappeared. Project InPosterum has preserved stories of the children kidnapped by the Nazis, including stories of children who resisted “Germanization” and a few that managed to run away: http://www.projectinposterum.org/docs/lucas3.htm

The Nazis began destroying records of Lebensborn and the kidnapping programs in 1945. Much of the information known was gathered by the UN Tracing agents who interviewed families and older children. About 25,000 Polish children out of the 200,000 reported missing were returned home and, entirely through the efforts of individual UN Tracing teams. Researchers have found it nearly impossible to determine just how many children were taken, and how many survived.

Court Forces Mother Who Survived Brutal Attack to Write Abuser Letters in Jail or Face Contempt

Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire (UK), Feb. 3, 2011- Natalie Allman, 29, was beaten and tortured for 7 hours, much of the attack happening in front of her children, by her ex-fiancee Jason Hughes. Jason was upset that Natalie wanted to end the relationship and retaliated with rage. The attack began when Natalie was sleeping and Jason attempted to smother her with a pillow. Natalie was also beaten with a dumbbell and slashed across the throat because Jason wanted to make her “ugly”.

After 7 hours, Jason let Natalie call an ambulance. The first responders were horrified to find Natalie’s bloodied body in bed, with the twin boys covered in blood and clinging to their mother.

Natalie surived the brutal attack with 8 wounds to her head and 5 fractures to her face. She also needed cosmetic surgery to rebuild her throat, and to this days, bears visible scars. 

Natalie Allman survives brutal attack: Newsteam, retrieved from Daily Mail

In 2012, Jason Hughes was sentenced to just 9 years in prison for malicious wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.
Jason reports that while in prison he enjoys playing X Box until 5 am, and has a job as a bee keeper. The prison also provides Jason with fresh organic fruit and vegetables. Jason has shown no remorse and seems to enjoy taunting Natalie with the letters.

Jason Hughes – (NewsTeam, SWNS News Group). Retrieved Daily Record.

The ordeal did not end there… Natalie, the mother of twin boys, has been court ordered to write Jason letters in prison to give him updates on the children. If Natalie refuses, she could be found guilty of contempt and face fines or up to 2 years in prison. A parental rights law mandates that Natalie must write Jason at least 3 times a year and send photographs every Easter, September and December. The order requires that the letters include “an update regarding the ­children’s general progress, both at nursery/school and socially, to include details of their health and emotional ­development”. Hughes is also allowed to send birthday cards.

Natalie says, “I couldn’t believe it. I could end up being split up from my children and sent to prison when he was the one who attacked me. I’m the one being treated like a criminal.”

Jason can continue the legal abuse because he gets free legal representation through Legal Aid. Natalie cannot afford legal help, and has went through all of her savings fighting this legal battle. 

Despite the struggles, Natalie Allman is bravely working to rebuild her life and give her children a happy childhood free of violence. She has a new boyfriend, and is the mother of another child.

____________________

Comments: Cases like this are why I  why I say that Family Court is “Legally Insane”…

Jason Hughes is a remorseless monster who attempted to murder Natalie Allman, and endangered the lives of his twin boys, and has subjected them to horrific trauma. Jason deserves no less than life in prison for what he has done. The Court should protect Natalie and her children from Jason, instead of enabling his abusive behavior to continue. Jason Hughes should be stripped of all parental rights, not given a second chance.

Natalie and her children’s lives are at risk due to this ridiculous court order…Jason Hughes attempted to kill Natalie, right in front of the children, he has absolutely no business having any contact with her or the children. This is case another tragic example of why need family court reform, and increased accountability for judges and other judicial officers. When the system fails, lives are put at risk, and there is no justice in that.

The Lebensborn Program Pt. I: Nazi Program to Breed ‘Master Race’

Family Court Injustice has been documenting events and real life stories of children stolen from their families by unjust courts or through government and judicial abuses of power. This article about the Lebensborn Program (1935-1945), Nazi Occupied Europe gives a glimpse into the Nazi eugenics program to create a “master race” that also included kidnapping and murder in it’s policies. Equally horrendous is the persecution of women participating in Lebensborn, and their innocent children, after the War ended. 

A dark chapter from history is the Lebensborn Program or Registered Society Lebensborn (1935-1945), Nazi Occupied Europe. Under the Lebensborn program, women (mostly unmarried) who were approved by the Nazi party to be racially pure were encouraged to get pregnant with SS officers, and high ranking Nazi officials in order to breed a “master race”. While some of the women chose to keep their children, a majority gave their children over to state care.

Equally horrific is the treatment of Lebensborn children in Norway, after WWII ended. The Norwegian government sponsored discrimination against Lebensborn children as well as torture, rape, abuse and forcible imprisonment because the child had a Nazi father and thus were considered “inferior” or a posed a danger as future traitors. Mothers were often imprisoned or sent to slave labor camps for their participation in the Lebensborn program. Many were forced to give up their children. Children as young as 4 years old were held in mental institutions by the Norwegian government because it was thought something must be mentally wrong for a mother to have a child with a Nazi, so the children must also be mentally deficient. In essence, innocent children were being punished for Nazi atrocities.

Another aspect of the Lebensborn Program is the Nazi kidnapping of Polish children. The children selected had fair complexion, blonde hair and blue or green eyes and notable Aryan features. Polish children were forcibly taken from their families and shipped by cattle car into Germany. The children were given new names, forbidden to speak their language and taught propaganda so they would reject their families, and reject their Polish heritage. The children were kept in state homes, foster home or adopted. Children who resisted were beaten, or sent to concentration camps, and killed. Children who were deemed “inferior” were also killed. After WWII ended some of these Polish children returned to their families but a majority did not — they either were so brainwashed that the children no longer identified as Polish, or had disappeared.

Read below for more details…

What is Lebensborn? Lebenborn means “wellspring of life” or “fountain of life”. Lebensborn was a secret Nazi genetic engineering project whose intention was to re-populate the planet with a superior race of Aryans.  As an extension of the SS Marriage Order of 1932, the 1936 Lebensborn ordinance mandated that every SS member should father four children, in or out of wedlock. The stated mission of Lebensborn was to create “racially, biologically, and hereditary valuable families”. The program was largely kept secret due to the stigma against illegitimate births, though the Nazi leaders planned to disclose these births to the public at an appointed time (it did not happen) when the “master race” would be revealed to society.

In 1935, Nazis began to actively target the Jews, banning intermarriage and enforcing the Nuremburg Laws…then began the ghettos, death camps, and mass murders of the Holocaust. The plan was to eliminate the “inferior” race with the “Final Solution” and promote the “superior Aryan race”.

Heinrich Himmler founded Lebensborn on December 12, 1935 (Himmler also oversaw the “Final Solution” or genocide of the Jews). Lebensborn was in part of the Schutzstaffel (SS) responsible for certain family welfare programs, and also a society for Nazi leaders. At the time, Germany’s birth rate was decreasing; in part due to a high rate of abortions. To grow the population and promote the “Aryan” bloodline, Himmler created the Lebensborn program to encourage SS and Wermacht officers to have children with “Aryan” women. Himmler also thought Lebensborn children would create future Nazi armies. Young women were enticed, and told it was their duty, to get pregnant with SS and Wermacht officers. Both mother and father were tested for racial purity; desired traits being blond hair with green or blue eyes, and a family line that could be traced back at least 3 generations. Candidates had to swear allegiance to the Nazi state.

The need for children was so great that marriage was not a requirement, it was also allowed for a married officer to have an affair for the purpose of procreation in the Lebensborn program. A majority of mothers who entered the program were unmarried, about 60%. At the time it was a social stigma to have a child out of wedlock. Women who had children out of wedlock often faced losing jobs, housing and being publicly ostracized. Lebensborn offered a safe, secret way to bear children without public shame, and then offered alternatives to provide for the baby after birth. Wives of high ranking party members chose Lebensborn for maternity care.

The first Lebensborn home opened in 1936, in the tiny village of Steinhoering (near Munich), an estimated 2,800 children were born here. The home was furnished with goods stolen from Jewish families, who were then sent to the death camp Dachau. Many of the Lebensborn facilities were residences, nursing homes or other buildings stolen from Jewish families and business owners. Lebensborn quickly grew with 14 homes in Germany and Austria, 9 in Norway, and one home in each Belgium, Denmark, France, Luxemburg and Holland. Lebensborn homes offered an opportunity for SS officers to meet women for the purpose of procreation. The homes also offered a safe, comfortable place for the pregnant women to convalesce before birth. The women were given the best medical care and told it was their duty to produce children for the Nazi state.

 

After birth, the baby was thoroughly inspected and given a medical exam. Any child that was disabled or deemed unfit was killed or sent to concentration camps. If the baby was approved, the baby was baptized in an occult SS ceremony that involved a SS dagger raised over the baby while oaths were said, pledging lifelong loyalty to Nazi ideology.

The government took care of the child’s education and upbringing (either fostered, adopted or raised at the Lebensborn center). Other women chose to raise their children as single mothers, most mothers who did so told children that the father had died in the war and refused to talk about Lebensborn program. When adults, some of these children stumbled upon the secrets surrounding their birth.

When Lebensborn did not increase the birth rate the way Hitler hoped, in 1942 the program was expanded to include “racially pure” women of other Nazi occupied nations, who may not be of pure German blood. Women approved as racially pure were offered sexual relations with SS and Wermacht officers, and allowed to stay at Lebensborn homes during the pregnancy, and offered complete secrecy to bear children who would later be signed over to state care. The ten years of the Lebensborn program produced at least 7,500 children born in Germany and another 10,000 born in Norway.

Warning Signs for Bribery of the Family Court Judge in a Custody Case

Emily Court:

Sounds familiar… I am not sure all judges & court officers are being bribed as this article claims but this a list of warning signs on what to look for to identify family court injustice. Other reasons may include: bias, cronyism, corruption or incompetence.

Originally posted on Autism Custody Battles:

All over the world, poor people are denied access to legal representation or family support because they cannot bribe the corrupt CPS worker or prosecutor, then held indefinitely in a custody battle—or found guilty—because they cannot bribe the corrupt judge. The ability to put cash in the right hands often makes the difference between freedom and entrapment for victims of abuse of the judicial system.

Judge Garson accepted $1,000 and a box of cigars

everyone is equal before the law.”

Update ** Bill Windsor – American Hero Exposing Government Corruption

Bill Windsor is an American hero, who has courageously worked to expose government, judicial and law enforcement corruption. Bill has filmed the testimonies of everyday Americans negatively impacted by abuses of power in his efforts to create a documentary film called “Lawless America”.

Also included in “Lawless” is a segment called “Love Letters to the Children” which features the heartfelt words of parents speaking to the children they have been separated from. Many of these parents lost custody of their children in unjust family court or CPS proceedings. 

Bill has traveled all across America (in every state but Alaska) meeting people who have shared horrific stories including: children being wrongly taken by CPS or family court, people being wrongly imprisoned, whistle blower testimonies, targeted individuals and guardianship/elder abuse and more. Hardworking volunteers and supporters have aided Bill and “Lawless”, lending their time, energy and efforts to the cause of justice.

Like other whistle blowers before him, Bill has faced retaliation for exposing the corruption, dishonesty, violations of law and illegal activities that are destroying the America we know as the “land of the free”.  Bill has been harassed, stalked and attacked by agents intent on destroying “Lawless” and silencing those who so courageously shared their stories. Those attacking Bill are truly dangerous, psychopathic individuals that represent, support and enable the corruption. Yet Windsor is not deterred. He continues to investigate and report incidents of corruption, and is now filing criminal charges. 

Lawless” is still going strong… and deserves our support. These are real life people– our families, our children, our neighbors, our friends — telling their story to  “Lawless”; they deserve to be heard. The corruption needs to be exposed so we can fight for justice. You have a right to know the truth.

Wednesday January 21, 2015: Update from Bill Windsor, “Lawless America”

BILL WINDSOR BEGINS FILMING THE STORY OF CYBERSTALKER U, THE UNIVERSITY OF MONTANA

According to the authorities in Montana, I can’t Tweet or Email or print the name of a UNIVERSITY OF MONTANA EMPLOYEE somewhere. But there is no prohibition on videos.

So, “we be videoing.” It will be X-rated for profanity.

For those who don’t know, the short story is this: Bill Windsor set out to film a movie exposing government, judicial, and law enforcement corruption. He traveled to every state (except Alaska), and he filmed over 750 stories of corruption and has thousands more who wanted to be filmed.

Evil people, some working for various government entities, set out to destroy Bill Windsor and the movie, Lawless America. Bill Windsor has been defamed online in the largest case of defamation in U.S. history. His life has been threatened many times. A UNIVERSITY OF MONTANA EMPLOYEE attempted to murder him. He was put into the Ellis County Texas Jail illegally for 53 days as a political prisoner.

The State of Montana has filed five criminal charges against William M. Windsor for sending a Tweet, publishing the UNIVERSITY OF MONTANA EMPLOYEE’s name (the would-be killer) four times, sending a legal notice email to a University of Montana attorney, and filming the movie and the pilot for a TV show that will expose Montana as the most corrupt state in the country. Now Bill Windsor is wanted for these dastardly crimes, and he is hiding out in exotic places like Tahiti and Bora Bora. All of that was true except the last four words.

And in a recent development, “law enforcement” had LawlessAmerica.com removed from the Internet. This website contains over 1,400 articles exposing corruption. Bill Windsor is now working with a friendly offshore hosting company to return the website to the Internet outside the clutches of American evildoers.

The Difficulties & the Dream: Remembering MLK Day

“I say to you today, my friends, so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream…” – Martin Luther King, Jr. “I Have a Dream” speech, 1963

Martin Luther King Jr. Day is just another day without my children. Another day my children are being forcibly alienated from their mother, and their maternal family of origin (including our culture and family history). 

Remembering Martin Luther King Jr. Day 2010… We sat shoulder to shoulder, huddling over a bright yellow piece of construction paper. JJ impatiently grabbed for the markers, she always had to be first at everything. My son, DJ, is more thoughtful, deliberate.

I read the “I Had a Dream” speech to my children, and talked to them about what life was like for Blacks when Dr. King gave this powerful speech by sharing with them stories from our own family. I flipped open our family photos, taking my children back to our family beginnings in Alabama, memories collecting in the overgrown back roads, sharing stories about the adventures my cousin and I had visiting the places important to our family.

Now we were doing an art project. I wrote on the paper some of the words from the “I Have a Dream Speech”… I have a dream that one day… Little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls and walk together as sisters and brothers…

http://www.let.rug.nl/usa/documents/1951-/martin-luther-kings-i-have-a-dream-speech-august-28-1963.php

dream2

My children and I then placed our hands on the paper, tracing our hands beneath those words. My big fingers touched the slender fingers of my daughter JJ. My son DJ traced his fingers over mine, one day his hand would be bigger than mine. One day DJ would hold my hand with the tenderness I had shown him, when I first held his newborn hand in my own, counting every finger. One day DJ’s bigger hand would wrap my hand in warmth, “Mommy come look…” He’d say, pulling me along.

On the backside of the paper, I wrote “I have a dream that one day…” And my daughter JJ wrote “little kids are okay and good” Then she drew a picture of a group of smiling children. In the middle of the group is “Mommy” wearing a dress and high heels.

okpic

I have so many dreams for my children…

I dreamed that I would cook big, hearty family meals for my children. I would show the children family recipes passed down from our cousin in Alabama who learned from the women in our family, who learned from their mommas generations back… cornbread, rice casserole, baked macaroni and cheese, smoked ribs… We’d eat until our bellies were full, then fall on the couch in exhaustion, cuddled up together to watch a movie.

I dreamed of watching my little girl JJ grow up. When JJ was little, she had such a sparkly spirit… she loved to sing. In my happiest memories, JJ puts on a pink party dress and a blonde wig. Her small legs wobble in my tall black boots. JJ grabs a wooden spoon as a “microphone” and sings to a rendition “Dancing on Sunshine” by Aly & AJ. JJ looks at me with a gleam in her eye then kicks one boot and me then the other! Then JJ rips off her wig and throws that at me too! JJ was never able to finish that song, she was laughing so hard.

I dreamed of exploring with my son DJ, traveling down back roads to discover unusual finds, such as the yard that was decorated with the two toilets with flowers stuffed in the bowel. DJ’s attention often wanders, he has big thoughts. When DJ was little he would sit in his walker, playing happily one minute. But when you turned your back, DJ would start running, crashing the walker into a baby gate like a battering ram. Once the baby gate was toppled over, a mangled mess, DJ would scream with triumphant joy. He enjoyed his freedom, swinging open cupboard doors, chasing the dog… Even now I remember the sound of his small feet thundering across the floor. Now those feet wear a size 12 shoe!

The dreams I had for my children were stolen. Not by men in combat boots carrying rifles, not by tornado or other disaster, but those dreams were stolen by judges in flowing black robes, whose unjust rulings have destroyed my family. When I told the Judge that my children are being alienated from their family, their history, their religion…he looked at me with a blank face and shrugged.

Those dreams were stolen by the pinched-faced Guardian ad Litem (GAL) who has actively worked to give sole custody of my two children, who have experienced abuse and were homeless in order to escape the violence in our home, to the man who has abused them. The GAL said that if an abuse victim is afraid of her abuser—as I am—then that abuse victim must be mentally ill. The GAL said that it is much worse to have fear of an abuser than to be the one actually causing harm to your family. All of these reasons were her justification to give custody of the children to the abuser.

 Those dreams were stolen by their abusive father, whose rages are familiar to my children as a lullaby. In a final act of retaliation, the abuser is now alienating my children from their mother, and any connection to their maternal family; inflicting on my children incredible grief and loss.

I take a deep breath, and push back the pain, remembering JJ’s sweet soprano voice singing, remembering the one dimpled simple of DJ as he crashed through the baby gate… I have a dream. And I will not give up on that dream. I will fight for that dream. And one day that dream will prevail. One day my children will come back home. And one day there will be justice for the parents who have been victimized by the injustice and corruption in family court. I believe in that dream, even in the darkness of corruption, just as Martin Luther King Jr. believed, while sitting in the darkness of a jail cell.

(a) “The best interests of the child” means all relevant factors to be considered and evaluated by the court including…

(10) the capacity and disposition of the parties to give the child love, affection, and guidance, and to continue educating and raising the child in the child’s culture and religion or creed, if any;

(11) the child’s cultural background….

The Court and the court appointed Guardian ad Litem does not care, and will not protect the right of my children to be raised in the culture and religion of the maternal side of their family. I would expect there to be some compromises, and sharing, when co-parenting but instead, I have been totally excluded from the lives of my children. When I bring up my concerns to the court that my children are being alienated not only from their mother but from their family, culture and religion, I am simply dismissed. I am told “culture is not a factor” or “I am bringing up old issues”. This is my child’s identity we are talking about!
