"The Real New Order - Terror "

Part 1

The German-Soviet War has not brought any change in the attitude of the German occupants to the Poles. When yet ,another attempt to persuade Poles to cooperate with the Germans failed, the Germans abandoned their intentions of, lightening the oppression, Numerous arrests were made of men who had been prominent in Polish public life, on the ground that they had refused to co-operate.

The course which the occupants intended to pursue in future was clearly indicated in the speech which Governor-General Frank made when the territory of South Eastern Poland, conquered from the Soviets, was incorporated with the, General ,Gouvernement. In this speech Frank said: " For the first time in history almost the entire territory inhabited by Poles is now subject to German direction.


For the first time it. has. become possible to settle the Polish question in a purely German sense, and that settlement must be based on the following conceptions:


1. The Polish nation must be freed from bearing the responsibility "for its own political destiny, because in its attempts to achieve. its expansionist great power designs it· has again sacrificed the peace of other nations.


2. The Polish nation must be restricted to a small area of settlement, since by the numerical size of its population it belongs to the secondary nations. of Europe.


3. The Polish nation has no right to put forward any demand for equal claims to Self-government; the strict and unequivocal demarcation bet~ what is German and what is Polish is the right of the German nation.

 

Germanizing Activities

 

There has been no modification in the general tendency to Germanize Polish inhabitants especially of the incorporated areas. Besides the more direct ethnic approach to the question, the German occupant authorities are steadily proceeding with the Germanization of the country by the systematic destruction of everything Polish in the political and economic system, in society, in the family, and even local customs.


At every step the superiority of Germanism is emphasized. The Germans intend to base their domination of the country upon the Reichsdeutsche who have been introduced, who chiefly. supply the Treuhänders, the directors of economic, and commercial life, and who are also entrusted with the leadership of the Nazi Party in their area. All the types of party organizations which have existed for years in Germany have been setup in the incorporated areas, and even in the General Gouvernement.

 

German party houses, soldiers' houses, leaders' training schools, children's, homes and nurseries, amusements, celebrations, frequent old pagan German festivals, while Catholic festivals are ignored and religious processions prohibited, all these are exploited as instruments of Germanization.

 

Germanizing tendencies in the cultural and educational sphere find expression in the opening of German theatres (the one in Poznan was opened by Goebbels himself), German concert halls, as in Cracow, opened by Frank.· and the showing of propaganda films exclusively for Germans.
To quicken the interest of the Volksdeutsche National Socialist instructors have been brought in specially from the Reich. In 1941 there are 980 male instructors and 250 female instructors at' work in the incorporated areas of Pomerania, Poznan, Silesia and the area of Ciechanow.

 

Germanisation Polish names of the streets in Warsaw 1940 - 3 names of 3 Maja street.

There are 450 girls spending their vacation in Polish areas, 800 technical students, 630 students sent to S.S. settlement detachments; and 3,000 girls from the bunde deutscher Madel . The Nazi Party has organized 76 agricultural service camps and 26 labor service camps, where a National Socialist programme on approved Reich German lines is carried out.

 

In addition, in the incorporated areas a policy of direct Germanization is being applied, on the ground that the inhabitants of these areas are either. former Germans, or have German connections, or are living in a German milieu. The legal economic situation of the Germans brought into Polish areas from the Reich has been defined in the words of the leader of the German labor front, Dr. Ley.

 

When visiting Governor-General Frank in his capacity as Reichsorganizationsleiter, Ley said:
 

The fact that you are German requires that you, should have larger dwellings and greater living possibilities than the Pole or the Jew. By what law? By the law of our blood, the law of self-preservation."


This cynical law is legal warrant for economic pillage, violence and theft, if it is in German interests. The process of separating out the German nation is also being applied in the sphere of civil laws. A decree on civil law, dated December 14th, 1940, dissolves mixed marriages, and even German marriages can only be celebrated at a German registry office.

 

The judiciary, which is organized on the principle of colonial capitulations, removes Germans from the jurisdiction of Polish courts even for the most common of crimes, while the German courts regard such crimes as a kind of heroism.


This is the practical application of the German slogan:

 

"We are not like others, who force their way into colonies and foreign countries, plundering them and living on dividends extracted from them, for every German works honestly. The party's job is to arouse idealism, the sense of a certain mission to be fulfilled, in which the basis of existence is to be inspired by self-devotion in service for the Fuhrer."


The occupant authorities attach considerable importance to giving the Germans confidence in the permanence of the present lawless and arbitrary government. Since November 1st, 1940, the Krakauer Zeitung has been printed in 90,000 copies and the Warschauer Zeitung has been printed in 15,000 copies.

 

There are also German illustrated journals, trade and technical journals, and special publications for agriculturalists and the youth. The Ost-Deutscher Beobachter has published in Poznan and the Litzmannstiidter Zeitung in Lodz. The parasitic press is continually discussing problems of settlement, the part played by German colonists in Polish history, attempts to trace Polish names etymologically back to a German origin, etc. And of course everything Polish is sneered at, while the great Polish scientists, and artists, such as Copernicus, Wit Stwosz, Matejko and Moniuko, are given the stamp of Germanism.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
