Racial Hygiene in NS Germany



Comment:


The Kaiser Wilhelm Institute of Anthropology, Human Heredity, and Eugenics quickly became the leading center for human genetics in Germany and gained recognition for, among other things, its empirically-based research. The institute's staff worked as experts, assessors and consultants for government policies.
Founded in 1927, the new institute, as Eugen Fischer had announced proudly, would no longer occupy itself with mere skull measuring. In the sense of opening up anthropology toward human genetics, which Fischer outlined with the catchword of anthropobiology, the conventional, static, taxonomically organized concept of race that proceeded from morphological features was to be abandoned in favor of a dynamic concept of race conceived in terms of evolutionary biology and grounded in genetics. It could be applied to a multitude of topics, practically all anatomical, morphological, physiological, pathological, and psychological features and characteristics.
In 1933, Fritz Lenz came to Berlin where he established the first specific department devoted to eugenics at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute. Lenz specialised in the field of the transmission of hereditary human diseases and racial health. The results of his research were published in 1921 and 1932 in collaboration with Erwin Baur and Eugen Fischer in two volumes that were later combined under the title "Human Heredity Theory and Racial Hygiene" (1936). This work and his theory of race as a value principle placed Lenz and his two colleagues in the position of Germany's leading racial theorists. Lenz was a member of the "Committee of Experts for Population and Racial Policy".
For Lenz, human genetics established that the connection between racial identity and human nature was actually physical in character. Lenz also claimed that the revolutionary agitation in Germany after 1918 was caused by inferior racial elements, warning that the nation's racial quality was threatened. He stated that "the German nation is the last refuge of the Nordic race... before us lies the greatest task of world history".

    1. He'd probably recognize what's happening for what it is - destruction of the Aryan Race and complete globalization.

  2. Despite decades of liberal political and social effort to condense the whole human species into One Human Race, any trip to a shopping mall, any amount of time spent in a busy airport, any occasion where you have no choice but to use a public bathroom, all should convince anyone that equality among the races is a fiction! It is OBVIOUS. But oh how people love to babble the one world platitudes, or drop the curse "racist" on even a chatterbox TV weatherman who flubs the name of Martin Luther King (he said Coon) lest we all be tainted by what is OBVIOUS: the races are different, and they sure as hell ain't equal. Our race and culture are drowning in a rising tide of color that will bring the entire planet down to a low common denominator even more rancorous than the present day...but at least we'll all have cell phones, the ultimate leveling device !

    1. The U.S. Constitution proclaims that all men are created equal. The problem with that is you can't change facts by issuing edicts and decrees. You can't give an order that everyone is equal. The best you can do is order that everyone is to be treated as equals. It's just that many people - and not just us so-called racists - would have trouble treating someone they know is inferior as an equal. They just couldn't go along with that. Slowly, discrimination would creep into society and bit by bit we would have first class citizens, second class, third class an so on based on one's race. That's why it is imperative for the multiculturalists to convince the people that we are all equal whether we are or not. The obvious disparities between races are explained away by using socio-economic factors to explain why some races fail to "measure up" to other races. "They were abused as kids." "Their parents were druggies." "They were extremely poor." We've all heard the bullshit excuses. The multiculturalists know they are bullshit excuses. They just hope the great, uninformed public doesn't realize it. Those few who do can be labled as racists, but they can pull that on everyone.
