Dystopian and anachronistic map of Nazi New Order.

„Die Volksdeutsche Mittelstelle, seit 1941 ein Hauptamt des Reichsführers SS, arbeitete 1939 einen Plan aus, in Transdanubien (Dunäntül) die Magyaren auszusiedeln und Volksdeutsche anzusiedeln; später dachte sie daran, an beiden Seiten der Donau in einer Breite von 50 — 100 km bzw. 35 km von Mohäcs bzw. Orsova (rumän. Orsova) bis zum Schwarzen Meer Volksdeutsche anzusiedeln s. 1940/41 dachten reichs- und Volksdeutsche Kreise daran, aus Banat, Batschka (Backa, Bdcska) und Baranya (Baranja) einen „Prinz-Eugen-Gau" zu bilden und Belgrad zu einer „Reichsfestung" zu machen. Die Berliner „Reichsstelle für Raumordnung" dachte von den deutschen Siegen im Osten bis Mitte 1944 daran, die Slowakei und das Gebiet von Raab (Györ) in ein Ost-Bayern einzugliedern und die südliche Grenze der „Südmark" bis an den Plattensee (Balaton) und die Stadt Laibach zu erweitern; als Entschädigung für die an das Deutsche Reich abzutretenden Gebiete sollte Ungarn das Gebiet um Lemberg und Nordwest-Rumänien erhalten. (Derartige Expansionsgelüste können nicht damit entschuldigt werden, daß auch auf der anderen Seite ähnliche Pläne geschmiedet wurden, so z. B. im Sommer 1940 in Laibach in der Schrift eines Erjavec, der das slowenische Volksgebiet bis Salzburg, Linz und Wien ausweitete.) In ödenburg selbst ging seit dem Anschluß Österreichs das Gerücht um, das Deutsche Reich werde dieses Gebiet früher oder später annektieren. Um den ungarischen Charakter ödenburgs und seiner Umgebung zu sichern, schlug der ungarische Außenminister Graf Csäky dem Reichsminister des Innern Dr. Frick, der im Juni 1939 in Ungarn weilte, vor, die Bevölkerung der dortigen kleinen deutschen Dörfer gegen die ungarische Bevölkerung der Gemeinde Engerau bei Preßburg (Pozsonyliget- falu, slowak. Petrialka; seit dem 1. Wiener Schiedsspruch beim Deutschen Reich) auszutauschen. Die Reichsregierung verständigte jedoch am 2. Oktober 1939 die ungarische Regierung, daß sie den Plan nicht akzeptiere *. In ungarischen Regierungskreisen kursierte im Jänner/Februar 1939 das Gerücht, Berlin werde bei einer Durchführung der ungarischen Aktion gegen die Karpatoukraine als Repressalie deutsche Truppen in das Gebiet um Ödenburg einrücken lassen.“
„Ein solcher Beleg sind aber die Denkschriften „Der Anschluß ödenburgs an das Deutsche Reich" und „Die Eingliederung des deutschen Westungarn in das Deutsche Reich" (mit Anlagen und Kartenmaterial), die auf Anregung des Gauleiters und Reichsstatthalters von Niederdonau, Dr. Hugo Jury11, entstanden lt. Eine Notiz des Auswärtigen Amtes vom 4. September 1940 besagt ls: „Der Gauleiter von Niederdonau, Dr. Jury, hat zahlreiches Kartenmaterial überreicht, mit dem bewiesen werden soll, daß die Grenze zwischen dem Deutschen Reich und Ungarn noch zu unseren Gunsten durch Einverleibung der derzeit ungarischen Gebiete um Wieselburg, Ödenburg, Güns und St. Gotthard berichtigt werden müßte, da dort zum großen Teil Deutsche wohnen. Es wird um Entscheidung gebeten, ob dieses Kartenmaterial dem Gesandten von Rintelen 14 zugeleitet werden darf.“
(Österreichische Osthefte)

“The short-sightedness of the Horthyite policy of territorial revisionism is demonstrated by the fact that, while Hungarian leaders were congratulating themselves on their success, in Berlin plans for the military annexation of Hungary had been ready for a year. Evidence of this is to be found in Hermann Rauschning's book.”
(The New Hungarian quarterly, by Iván Boldizsár)

“Veesenmayer wants to solve the Hungarian question in the manner that Hungary should come absolutely under the power-policy of the Reich. He strives for an enlargement of the Reich to the Danube, that is, a final incorporation of Hungary into the Great-German Reich. Paragraph VII of his proposals speaks already of a special emissary, invested with far-reaching powers. Veesenmayer was appointed Minister Plenipotentiary of the Reich.”
(Eichmann in Hungary; documents, by Jenö Lévai)

“Hungary was to be simply invaded, as an enemy country, and that by a mixed force which was to include contingents from Roumania, Slovakia and Croatia, besides Germans. The satellites were, it seems, to be rewarded by satisfaction of their national claims : Roumania and Slovakia by cancellation of the two Vienna Awards; Croatia by the attribution of the Muraköz, and it seems likely that the old plan of forming South Hungary into a Prinz Eugen Gau was revived. What was left of Hungary was to be placed under direct German government, involving at any rate the introduction of the Reichsmark as currency and the incorporation into the Wehrmacht, under direct German command, of such elements of the Hungarian Army as were allowed to remain under arms. Gestapo and specialist detachments were to carry through a complete clean-up of the country. Both Himmler and Ribbentrop approved of this plan, and certain advance preparations were begun.”
(A history of Hungary, 1929-1945, by Carlile Aylmer Macartney)

„Also: Der Führer hat es neuerlich Kaltenbrunner erklärt. Ungarn wird im künftigen neuen Europa kein selbständiger Staat mehr sein. Überhaupt wird an das Großdeutsche Reich alles angeschlossen werden, was früher zum alten Österreich gehörte, inklusive Kroatien und Siebenbürgen. Mit dem Verlust des letzteren wird Rumänien für seinen Verrat bestraft. Ob auch wir für die Niederlagen, die wir uns von Rußland beibringen ließen, bestraft werden, wurde nicht gesagt. Jedenfalls stellt sich diese ganze Problematik des Donauraumes, die seit Prinz Eugen die besten Geister befaßt und zu keiner entsprechenden Losung gebracht hat, nun höchst einfach dar. Sie umfaßt nichts anderes als eine Polizeiaufgabe: widerspenstige Völker kirre zu machen. Man sieht wieder, daß Hitler vom alten Osterreich und den ihm innewohnenden zentripetalen und zentrifugalen Kräften keine blasse Ahnung hat (wie übrigens zum Beispiel auch Neubacher wirklicher Kenntnisse auf diesem Gebiete entbehrt, sonst würde er nicht in der Wiedererweckung einer kroatischen Militärgrenze eines der Elixiere für die Losung der südslawischen Frage erblicken). Leider, fürchte ich, werden wir - wenigstens unsere Generation - nicht mehr dazukommen, unser Gehirnschmalz an diese Dinge zu verschwenden. Aber eines ist jedenfalls interessant. Irgendwie dämmert im Unterbewußtsein des Führers die Erkenntnis, welch großen Wert das alte Osterreich für die Behauptung des Deutschtums in Europa gehabt hat! Ich habe denn auch nicht verfehlt, meinem aus jüngeren SS bestehenden heutigen Zuhörerkreis vor Augen zu bringen, daß seit einem Vierteljahrtausend, das heißt seit der Gründung des österreichischen Großreiches, am Plattensee kein äußerer Feind gestanden ist. Dies zu ermöglichen, war erst uns vorbehalten . . . „
„Zu diesem hochmächtigen Manne, der auch das Ritterkreuz des Kriegsverdienstkreuzes mit Schwertern trägt, kam ich nun. Was er mir erzählte, war im Augenblick so grotesk, daß ich meinen Ohren kaum traute. Ich wisse es vielleicht schon, daß der Führer bei völligem Verzicht auf Osterwerbungen die Absicht habe, alle im ehemaligen österreichischen Raume entstandenen Staatsgebilde unter unmittelbarer reichsdeutscher Herrschaft, sozusagen als Gaue des Reiches, zu vereinigen (unter anderem nannte Kaltenbrunner zum Beispiel Jury als künftigen Gauleiter von Ungarn). Daß solche Pläne existieren, war mir nicht neu.“
„Im einzelnen sollten Kroatien und die Slowakei natürlich irgendwie Bundesländer werden, wobei es für alle Beteiligten klar war, daß Kroatien ohne Pavelic neu zu organisieren sei. Ein Gegensatz bestand nur insofern, als ich der Meinung war, den Poglavnik so bald als möglich aus dem Lande herauszubringen, während Kaltenbrunner ihn drinnen lassen möchte. Der besondere Groll der Mächtigen gilt offenbar den Ungarn. Diese seien, Gott sei Dank, zu erheblichem Teile ausgerottet. Man werde so auf einfache Weise die Bodenreform durchführen können, das Land zunächst mit einem Heer deutscher und in Deutschland geschliffener ungarischer Polizisten überziehen und auch die Wirtschaft völlig unter deutsche Führung zwingen. Weites, unbesiedeltes Land werde Gelegenheit zu neuen, geschlossenen deutschen Siedlungen bieten, wobei Kaltenbrunner auch an preußische Siedler in der Puszta dachte. Ich erlaubte mir, an Serbien, Siebenbürgen und Rumänien zu erinnern. Serbien und Rumänien werde man wohl in ein Abhängigkeitsverhältnis zu Deutschland bringen müssen, über Siebenbürgen sprach sich der große Staatenplaner nicht näher aus.“
(Ein General im Zwielicht: Die Erinnerungen Edmund Glaises von Horstenau, by Edmund Glaise von Horstenau)

“Yet the damage his revelation had caused was not only irreparable; it spread quickly and alarmingly. Lakatos learned from his intelligence sources that had he taken over, the Germans would have abrogated the regent's authority and named a Gauleiter (provincial chief) over a large portion of Hungary, allowing the Slovaks, Romanians, and Yugoslavians to occupy the rest.”
(A Man for All Connections, by Andrew Handler)

“On that occasion, I showed him a document sent by the German Volksbund to Neubacher, the German economic attache to the south-east, outlining a plan to divide Hungary into its ethnical units and incorporate these on a federal basis in the National-Socialist Reich. Von Papen knows that I made no secret of this in giving the Germans my views on it.”
(Memoirs, by Miklós Horthy)

„Eine sehr konkrete Vorstellung zur Lösung der deutschen Frage im Südosten oder zumindest in Siebenbürgen hatte der VGF, als er 1942 beim SS-Hauptamt in Berlin seinem Schwiegervater SS-Obergruppenführer Berger den Vorschlag machte, Siebenbürgen unter Abtrennung von Rumänien unmittelbar oder mittelbar zum Reichsgebiet zu machen. Damit dieser Vorschlag für die Nachwelt nachweisbar von ihm stamme, schrieb er auch einen gleichlautenden Brief an den Reichsführer SS Himmler. Erschütterungen in Rußland Franz nahm wieder Abschied von der Schule.“
(Sarah: Unerhörte Schicksale 1933-1995, by Hans Wolfram Hockl)

„Volksgruppenführer Andreas Schmidt ließ bereits im Februar 1941 den Gauleiter des rumänischen Banats, Peter Anton, den Leiter des Schulamtes, Nikolaus Hans Hockl, und den Leiter des Amts für Propaganda, Hans Wedel, ihrer Ämter entheben, weil sie sich angeblich für den Anschluß des rumänischen Banats an den geplanten „Reichsgau Banat" eingesetzt hatten, was als Landesverrat gegenüber Rumänien hätte interpretiert werden können. In Wirklichkeit sollen diesen Amtsenthebungen persönliche Rivalitäten zugrunde gelegen haben, denn Andreas Schmidt hat selbst, wie aus Schreiben an seinen Schwiegervater, SS-Gruppenführer und Chef des SS- Hauptamts, Gottlob Berger, hervorgeht, davon geträumt, Siebenbürgen unter Abtrennung von Rumänien „unmittelbar oder mittelbar zum Reichsgebiet zu machen". Sogar einige Tage nach dem Frontwechsel Rumäniens, im August 1944, hielt er den Zeitpunkt für gekommen, diesen Plan zu verwirklichen. Er befürwortete desgleichen eine deutsche Besiedlung der „Lücken" zwischen Graz und Siebenbürgen im Hinblick auf die Gründung eines deutschen Staatengebildes. Der siebenbürgisch-sächsische SS-General Arthur Phleps soll sich in einem Memorandum an Adolf Hitler dafür ausgesprochen haben, statt der geplanten Ostsiedlung die „völkischen Lücken" beginnend…“
(Siebenbürgisches Archiv, by Harald Roth)

„Auf Seite 37 E, Anmerkung 128: „In einem frühem Brief an Berger (6. 12. 1943) schrieb Schmidt: ,Nun habe ich meine Volksgruppe auf den Reichsführer geschworen, die Partei wird von SS-Führern geführt, die ganze Arbeit, alles steht zu Euch, der Schutzstaffel!' — Ende August 1944, wie ähnlich schon in früheren Jahren, setzte sich Schmidt offen dafür ein, Siebenbürgen unter Abtrennung von Rumänien ,unmktelbar oder mittelbar' zum ,Reichsgebiet' zu machen (an Berger, am 28. 8. 1944, vgl. dazu Berger an Himmler 2. 10. 1942)".“

German Race in South-eastern Europe Dr. Josef Marz, Professor of Prague University, National Zeitung, Essen (24.9.42) : " Since the days of the Hungarian Queen Gisela, when German knights, burgers, peasants and craftsmen helped to bring Hungary to order within the European community of nations,"since the immigration of the Mosel Franks to Transylvania, when a firmly established German community sprang into existence, up to the colonization of the Banat and far into the 1 9th ( century, the German race (Volkstum) has again and again acted as a leaven, permeating the countries of South-eastern Europe.

“During the war, Himmler briefly entertained the idea of setting up a reservation for the "racially pure Sinto and Lalleri Gypsies.”
(God, Greed, and Genocide: The Holocaust Through the Centuries, by Arthur Grenke)

“On order by Reichsfuhrer-SS Heinrich Himmler, head of the Gestapo and the Waffen-SS, Gypsies were further classified by tribes: Lalleri, Sinti, and Romani, who, Ritter recommended, should be isolated and put on reservations. According to Himmler and his advisers, the Lalleri, German Gypsies because of their long residency in the country, and the racially "pure" Sinti, who made up about 10 percent of all Gypsies in the Reich, were to be declared Aryans.”
(The Gypsies of Eastern Europe, by David Crowe, ‎John Kolsti)

“In October 1942, Himmler issued a decree appointing nine Gypsy men as so-called speakers, eight pure Sinti and one Lalleri. They were to identify pure Sinti and Lalleri and some "good hybrids" for exemption. Himmler intended to permit these pure Sinti and Lalleri to wander within a "designated area" and to follow their "customs and habits." It was obviously one of Himmler's pet ideas to keep a few Gypsies, those he thought most representative of their kind, as living museum pieces on a reservation he would select and supervise. While some Nazi leaders were assembling Jewish books and artifacts to display after the Jews had disappeared, Himmler chose to collect living specimens to exhibit after the Gypsies had disappeared.
(Nazi Genocide, by Henry Friedlander)
 
“For ideological reasons, SS-Chief Heinrich Himmler wanted to spare a small minority of "pure" German Sinti and Lalleri Gypsies, eventually to be concentrated on a reservation somewhere in the General Government.”
(Holocaust: The end of the final solution and its aftermaths, by David Cesarani, Sarah Kavanaugh)
 
“Himmler had not yet given up his plans to exclude the racially pure Sinti and Lalleri from the general Gypsy statutes and persecution plans. His plan, to allow this privileged group "to roam in a certain area [according to Joan Riedl, he probably thought of the district of Ödenburg, now Sopron, in Hungary], to live according to their customs and traditions and to work in an occupation suitable to their tribe," reminds one of colonial reservations. The preparations to realize this special plan were still in progress — the suitable group of people had yet to be determined — when this decree was superseded by the next one that contained the final solution to the Gypsy question.”
(National Socialism and Gypsies in Austria, by Erika Thurner)

“Rudolf Höss, the commandant of Auschwitz, in his postwar memoirs named the area of Lake Neusiedler on the border between Austria and Hungary as the place assigned to the pure Gypsies, but we have no corroboration for this recollection. The RKPA is supposed to have thought of a reservation in the General Government and even to have proposed allowing the pure Gypsies to join an “Indian Legion” recruited from Indian prisoners of war. But we lack details for these schemes too. The issue of the “settlement of the pure Gypsies” was discussed at a 35-minute meeting between Sievers and Nebe on February 10, 1943,19 and that is the last time this subject is referred to in any documentary source.”

The staff officer recording Hitler's views noted, How long the Führer will adhere to the treaty concluded with Slovakia is doubtful. The High Command of the Army has the impression that when the time comes the Führer will rid himself of this, and will use Slovakia as a political bargaining counter between himself, Poland, and Hungary. For the time being, however, Hungary is to be kept in check. The Führer agrees with the proposed frontier delimitation (line of the Waag) [the river Vah, presumably the military frontier between Slovakia and the Protectorate]. Should Slovakia be partitioned, the eastern frontier (Nitra line) is to become the frontier and Pressburg [Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia] is to be included.
"The time had come to make perfectly plain once again, particularly with reference to the countries of Southeastern Europe, that Slovakia is in our Lebensraum, that is, that our wishes alone count".
(Hitler’s War Aims, the establishment of the New Order, Norman Rich)

„…weiterhin den Eindruck, die Slowakei als politisches Handelsobjekt zwischen Polen und Ungarn verwenden und über die Waaglinie hinaus die Westslowakei mit Preßburg bis zum Flusse Neutra dem Reich einverleiben zu wollen.“
(Der ungarische Revisionismus und die Zerschlagung der Tschechoslowakei, by Jörg Konrad Hoensch)

“The Fuehrer agrees to the border line proposed (line of the river Waag). In case Slovakia should be divided, the eastern border (line of the Neutra river) should be the border, including Bratislava. For Bratislava possibly a plebiscite ; the Fuehrer does not expect difficulties because the town is not tending toward Hungary. Engerau shall become a permanent Garrison.”
(Nazi conspiracy and aggression)

Lösung I : Bildung eines Gaues Böhmen und eines Gaues Mähren bzw. Marchland und Angliederung der Restgebiete an die angrenzenden Gaue.
Lösung II: Bildung eines Gaues Böhmen unter Einbeziehung des Gebietes Olmütz. Bei dieser Lösung wird in das Gebiet des Gaues Böhmen nach Lösung I das Gebiet Olmütz mit einbezogen, während die übrigen Gebiete Mährisch-Schlesiens an die schlesischen Gaue, bzw. den Gau Niederdonau abgegliedert werden.
Lösung III: Bildung eines Gaues Böhmen und Aufteilung des mährisch-schlesischen Gebietes auf die schlesischen Gaue, bzw. den Gau Niederdonau.
(Die Deutschen in der Tschechoslowakei, 1938-1947, by Václav Král)

“At this point Slovakia also became a target of the SS and its ambitious population policy. Independent Slovakia, which had been created in March 1939, had a German minority of about 130000 people. The leadership of this group, which had Nazi views, sought affiliation with the Reich, which, in view of the areas of ethnic German settlement, would have implied the annexation of large parts of Slovakia. This was opposed to the official policy of the Nazi regime, which was much more in favour of a Slovakian state dependent on Germany than of bringing these ethnic Germans ‘home to the Reich’.”
(Heinrich Himmler: A Life, by Peter Longerich)

“President Tiso tried to walk a balancing wire, countering the more extreme elements of his party as well as the 'Deutsche Partei', the German party in Slovakia, which continuously clamored for a more Nazi orientation, and even the outright incorporation of Slovakia into the Reich. His intentions were quite evident to German diplomats in Slovakia, but it appears that Hitler thought best to countenance them for the sake of stability in the war effort, since Tiso was immensely popular among his own people.”
(Illustrated Slovak History, by Anton Špiesz)

“Their scholarship of legitimation aimed not only to boost German claims of having brought civilization to Slovakia in medieval times and consequently deserving special rights in the country, particularly in the stewardship of land and cultural “leadership.”3 It also supported the National Socialist leadership of the DP in its program of forging a homogenous Volksgruppe out of distinctly diverse, particularist German-speaking settlements in Slovakia.4 Ultimately, this sort of scholarship would have laid the intellectual groundwork for an eventual absorption of the Slovak lands and people into Greater Germany.”
“In what directions the IHF in Käsmark would have evolved had the war turned out differently remains pure speculation. Given examples from other regions, however, a probable scenario emerges. If the moment had ever come for “germanizing” the Western Carpathian region, including Slovakia, something several DP functionaries and SS officers speculated about,36 the IHF in Käsmark would have been perfectly situated to endow such dubious plans with a pseudo-scholarly cachet.”
“These included three major settlement regions, known as “linguistic islands” (Sprachinseln) in the ethnological jargon of the day: Preßburg (Slovak: Bratislava) and its environs in the southeast, the central region around Deutsch-Proben (today Nitrianske Pravno, before 1945 Nemecké Pravno) and Kremnitz (Kremnica), which became known as the “Hauerland”; and the Zips (Spisˇ) in the northeast. Furthermore, separate German communities existed in rural areas throughout the country and in most larger cities, such as Tyrnau (Trnava), Kaschau (Kosˇice), and Sillein (Zˇilina). From the DP's racialist point of view, people of German descent who had culturally assimilated to their Slovak or Magyar-speaking surroundings should be “reclaimed” as Germans. These included the “Habaner” in western Slovakia, a group apparently descended from sixteenth-century Anabaptist emigrants and a favorite subject of DP functionaries and Reich-based academics alike.”
”As early as 1937, Karmasin, then still right-hand man for the Slovak lands to Sudeten German Party chief Konrad Henlein, wrote that the Germans of Slovakia needed to unify their separate linguistic enclaves and link their political fate to that of German- dom as a whole, while also stressing their common links to other Southeast European German minorities.”
“According to DP functionary Ruprecht Steinacker, “We have the advantage that, owing to the betrayal of the Southeastern peoples, consideration for them will no longer be necessary when the ethnic group is rebuilt after the war,” 6 March 1945, BArch, R70 Slowakei 4/41-5. The SS-Hauptamt representative in Slovakia, Obersturmbannführer Viktor Nageler, claimed in his “political situation report for Slovakia”: “The racial substance of the Slovak people is the largely the same as that of the Germans ... [in that respect] all preconditions for an assimilation are given.” SS-Hauptamt-Chief Gottlob Berger to Heinrich Himmler, 19 February 1943, BArch, NS19/2042/8-9. In his study of the relationship between “race” and “folk culture,” Bruno Schier remarked on “the high percentage of the fair races in the composition of the Slovak people” without explicitly anticipating the Slovaks' assimilation. See Schier Schier, “Aufbau der slowakischen Volkskultur,” 140–150.”
(German Scholars and Ethnic Cleansing, 1919-1945 by Ingo Haar, Michael Fahlbusch)

“For, in the meantime, Sturmbannfu ̈hrer Nageler, who had been assigned to the Hlinka Guard as an adviser, had started to create an elite unit from the members of the Guard, the so- called Wehrmannschaften (defence teams), who were envisaged as in the future helping the SS to integrate Slovakia into a greater Germanic empire. By creating such an elite, Nageler intended nothing less than to select racially 'valuable' Slovaks in order to amalgamate them with the 'Germanic' population. This was a project with which Himmler sympathized and which he was to return to in the following year.71 However, the implementation of such ideas would have damaged in the long term the privileged position the German ethic group was claiming for itself in Slovakia, and this was the reason for Karmasin's opposition.”
(Heinrich Himmler: A Life, by Peter Longerich)

Der SS-Hauptamt-Beauftragte für die Slowakei, Obersturmbannführer Viktor Nageler, behauptet in einem „Politischen Lagebericht über die Slowakei": „Die rassische Substanz des slowakischen Volkes ist weitgehend dieselbe wie die des deutschen [...] (insofern) sind alle Voraussetzungen fur eine Assimilation gegeben."
(Südostforschung im Schatten des Dritten Reiches, by Mathias Beer, ‎Gerhard Seewann)

„Nageler war Angehöriger des SS-Hauptamtes und sein Chef, Gottlob Berger, schrieb 1943 Heinrich Himmler, daß in „volkspolitischer" Hinsicht die „rassische Substanz des slowakischen Volkes [...] weitgehend dieselbe [sei] wie die des deutschen, zurückgehend auf die germanische Vorbesiedlung und eine tausend Jahre währende deutsche Besiedlung und Durchdringung". Entsprechend sei „eine Umsiedlung in größerem Ausmaße unnötig", für eine Assimilation jedoch seinen „alle Voraussetzungen [...] gegeben".8 Berger stützte sich bei diesen Ausführungen auf Arbeiten von Bruno Schier.“

The " Germanic " and " Aryan " elements among the Czechs to be " re-absorbed " Reinhardt Heydrich, Reich Protector for Bohemia and Moravia, later assassinated, in Neue Tag, Prague (20.11.41) : " The present population of Bohemia and Moravia originated from various races migrating from the East to these lands, where, during the course of centuries, they have become strongly intermingled with Germanic elements."German-controlled Prague-Radio (24.11.41) : " By reason of blood ties with the Reich, the Czech nation was for nearly a thousand years part of the German-speaking Holy Roman Empire. It is, furthermore, a member of the great Aryan race which is being led by the German nation. This is a fact which must be driven home by the teaching profession. ... A fundamental principle of National Socialism is that a nation is determined by blood-relationship." The extermination of any non-" Germanic " elements among the Czechs was of course Heydrich's speciality, as brilliant second to Himmler.

“Not only had Wetzel called for curbing Polish population growth through forced emigration, he also advocated a “peaceful integration” of “Kaschubians,” “Masurians,” “Water Poles,” and Goralen, regional subgroups whose language and culture placed them outside the mainstream of Polish nationality, into German Volkstum. All of Wetzel's proposed measures aimed to extract “Nordic racial elements” from the Polish population and “germanize” them, if possible. Members of ethnic groups with a rassenfremden Kern (a core “alien” to the German race) should be enslaved and deported to Kernpolen (“core Poland”), the drastically reduced rump of the Polish state.”
(German Scholars and Ethnic Cleansing, 1919-1945 by Ingo Haar,Michael Fahlbusch)

“Nazi designs for eastern Europe are exposed in a secret memorandum 'Considerations Regarding the Treatment of Foreign Ethnical Groups in the East,' signed by Heinrich Himmler on 15 May 1940 and forwarded to Hitler. In part it reads: 'In handling the foreign ethnical groups in the East we must pay heed to recognize and to show attention to as many searate peoples as possible. Thus, next to the Poles and Jews, the Ukrainians, the White Russians, the Gorelians, Lemkians and Kashubians should be considered. If any other fragmentary national group can be found, we must recognize it as well. I want to state thereby that we must have great concern not to unite the people of the East, but to dissect them into as many parts and splinters as possible. Also within the ... We must dissolve them into innumerable small fragments and atoms ... Only by dissolving this whole stew of people in the Government General, numbering some 15 million inhabitants, and likewise the 8 million of the Eastern provinces, will we succeed in carrying through the racial selection, which must remain the foundation for our plans. We will shift the racially valuable elements out of this stew and send them to Germany, there to assimilate them ... In 4 to 5 years I believe the notion of the Kashubians must have become unknown. There will be no more Kashubian people (this also applies to the West Prussians). The notion of there being a Jewry, I hope to see disappear, by virtue of a mass emigration of all Jews to Africa or into some colony. It must also be possible within a somewhat longer stretch of time, to bring about the disappearance of the ethnical concepts of the Ukrainians, Gorelians, and Lemkians”
(Searching for Place, by Lubomyr Y. Luciuk)

“The Reichsfiihrer SS spoke at the time of his presence on 13 and 14 March in Cracow in detail about the plans of settlement for the next few years and about the planned germanization. Among other things, he took the view that the Gorales, Lemkes, and Hutzules whose Germanic origin, or at least Germanic mixture, is in his opinion indubitable, should be germanized in due course.”

„So von der SS im Generalgouvernement an Himmler herangetragen, verfolgte dieser seit März 1942 den Plan, deutsche Bauern aus dem rumänisch besetzten Teil der Ukraine, eventuell auch aus den deutschen Dörfern bei Petrikau im Landkreis Zamosc anzusiedeln. Himmlers Plan ging noch weiter: Gora- len, Lemken und Huzulen sollten eingedeutscht werden, aus der Slowakei sollten die Zipser Deutschen umgesiedelt werden, und an San und Bug sollten deutsche Siedlungen das Polentum von allen Beziehungen zu anderen Völkern abschneiden.“

„Der »Flurbereinigung« diente ein Nationalkataster, die »deutsche Volksliste«. Ihre Einträge sollten eine »restlose Beseitigung« des polnischen Elementes und der »Judenheit« vorbereiten und die »Umvolkung« oder »Eindeutschung« verschiedener Gruppen »schwebenden Volkstums« wie Kaschuben, Masuren, Slonsaken, Lemken, Huzulen und deutsch-polnischer »Mischlinge« ermöglichen. Letztere erhielten die deutsche Staatsangehörigkeit »auf Widerruf«. Dagegen galten die sogenannten Kongreßpolen als »Schutzangehörige des Reiches«, ihrer bürgerlichen Rechte gleichkam.” Zur »Germanisierung« des gewonnenen Raumes wurden die Auslandsdeutschen mobilisiert. Der Moskauer Grenz- und Freundschaftsvertrag ermöglichte die Umsiedlung solcher Gruppen aus Ostpolen und Wolhynien. Abkommen mit den baltischen Republiken führten zur »Heimkehr« der dortigen Vorposten des Deutschtums.“

This extract from Himmler's circular runs as follows: „The group of foreign nationalities that can be Germamized comprises at most 1,000,000 who, raci-ally related to us through their blood, represent a valuable population increase to the German nation.”He did not fail to mention elsewhere that: ”those who use a non-German language at home (viz. the Masurians, Kashubs, Silesians (Slonzaken), and Upper Silesians can also be regarded as Germans.” In another letter Himmler wrote to the Minister of the Interior (16 Sept. 1940): "I wish to stress that the number of Poles suitable for Germanization because of racial reasons has been set by the Fiihrer at 1,000,000 at most. In fact this is a case of recovering lost German blood."

"The whole United Kingdom, including all of Ireland, was to be under German control. No decision had been reached as to whether this would be a puppet state of some sort, possibly under the Duke of Windsor, or incorporated directly as a Gau, a German province…"

“In the next directive, No. 17, of August 1, Hitler ordered an all-out air war against Britain and called for intensive operations on the seas. The plan for Britain's occupation was designed to turn the country into a German colony, to enslave its population and to exterminate all persons capable of resistance. The wealth of the country was to be shipped out. Under the projected system of coercive and punitive measures part of the population was to be deported and the rest greatly reduced by diverse methods of extermination.”

“The danger of the island kingdom becoming a German Gau was, however, real; the Imperial War Museum in London has reprinted both the German military government handbook for Great Britain and the very extensive arrest list. There is, further, an interesting facet of the notorious Wannsee-Protocol, the record of the German conference of Ianuary 1942, in which the apparatus of the German government as a whole was harnessed to the European portion of the program to murder the world's Jews. Included in the listing of those to be killed were the Jews of Britain, estimated at 330,000. Several questions were discussed at the conference, but this point was taken for granted and no discussion was thought necessary. It was assumed that all of Britain, including Ireland, was to become a German Gau.”
(A Companion to World War II, by Thomas W. Zeiler, ‎Daniel M. DuBois)

“Several of the orders, he claimed, made it clear that the Germans intended to occupy Southern England only, and he also claimed that one of the documents was a draft regulation concerning the passage of civilians back and forth from occupied to unoccupied British territory.”
(The Last Ditch: Britain's Secret Resistance and the Nazi Invasion Plan, by David Lampe, Gary Sheffield)

“The aim of Sea Lion' was to be the occupation of southern England as far as a line from Maldon to the Severn estuary. Occupation of northern England was thought to be unnecessary. This area could be left to its own devices, rather like Vichy France.”
“The final phase would be the investment and occupation of London and the securing of the Maldon-Severn line.”
(Invasion: From the Armada to Hitler, 1588-1945)

"Between 1925 and 1935 Hitler was emphatically working for a German-British alliance including a worldwide demarcation of interests between Berlin and London. In order to win over the British to this idea he seemed prepared for a long-term, though not a permanent, renunciation of colonies. In the period from 1935 to 1937 the ambivalent phase of his policy began. This was characterized both by a renunciation of colonial possessions and by the demand for them, used by way of pressure. But regardless of the fact that in March 1935 Britain rejected his idea of an alliance, while the naval agreement of June 1935, to which certain hopes had been attached, was not followed by any substantive political agreement, Hitler continued to pursue his original plans for an Anglo-German alliance. Not until 1937-9 did Britain become for him the “hated adversary”. He now intended to implement his programme-which aimed at hegemony in Europe in the short term and overseas world-power status in the long run-no longer only if he came to an arrangement with Britain, but, if necessary, against her. Even the successful realization of the first step would have automatically provided Germany with colonies and brought about a Greater German empire whose ‘power [would extend] from the Urals to the Atlantic, from the British Isles to the hearth of Africa’.”

"As soon as we beat England we shall make an end of you Englishmen once and for all. Able-bodied men and women between the ages of 16 and 45 will be exported as slaves to the Continent. The old and weak will be exterminated. All men remaining in Britain as slaves will be sterilised; a million or two of the young women of the Nordic type will be segregated in a number of stud farms where, with the assistance of picked German sires, during a period of 10 or 12 years, they will produce annually a series of Nordic infants to be brought up in every way as Germans. These infants will form the future population of Britain. They will be partially educated in Germany and only those who fully satisfy the Nazi's requirements will be allowed to return to Britain and take up permanent residence. The rest will be sterilised and sent to join slave gangs in Germany. Thus, in a generation or two, the British will disappear."

„Höhepunkt seiner diesbezüglichen Ambitionen war ein detailliertes Programm zur „völkischen Neuordnung Westeuropas“, das er im Herbst 1941 formulierte. Ausgangspunkt war für ihn die Überzeugung, dass Westeuropa nicht aus „völkisch einheitlichen“ Staaten, sondern aus einer Vielzahl regionaler „Volkstümer“ bestünde. Neben den als Staatsnationen anerkannten Völkern wie Franzosen, Spaniern oder Engländern lebten hier auch Friesen, Flamen, Basken, Okzitanier, Korsen, Bretonen, Katalanen, Galizier, Schotten, Waliser und Kelten. Als konsequente Folgerung aus der nationalsozialistischen Volkstumsideologie forderte Best, die politische Neuordnung Europas auf diesen Volkstumsunterschieden aufzubauen, allerdings unter der Maßgabe, dass die getroffenen Maßnahmen mit den militärischen und wirtschaftlichen Interessen Deutschlands vereinbar seien. Als „Maximalprogramm“ formulierte Best folgende Punkte: 1. Eingliederung der Niederländer ins Reich, gegliedert nach Gauen; Eingliederung Flanderns ins Reich, Errichtung eines Protektorats Wallonien 2. Eingliederung des französischen Gebiets nördlich der Loire ins Reich, Errichtung eines Schutzstaates Bretagne 3 Zusammenschluss von Nordirland mit Eire; Schaffung einer britischen Föderation mit Schottland und dem keltischen Südwesten als selbstständige Einheiten 4. Basken, Katalanen und Galizier als selbstständige Völker Im hier behandelten Zusammenhang ist Punkt 2 von besonderem Belang. Die Absicht, ganz Nordfrankreich bis zur Loire in das Deutsche Reich einzugliedern, beruhte auf der – wohl unter dem Einfluss der Theorien Steinbachs und Petris entstandenen – Ansicht, die heutige Bevölkerung Nordfrankreichs sei ihrem „Volkstum“ nach überwiegend den Germanen zuzurechnen.“
(Germanen und Romanen im Merowingerreich, by Hubert Fehr)

“Stuckart's plans were justified in the same way: releasing the strength of 'healthy racial elements' would weaken the power of 'Parisian France'. Calling for a 'volkisch New Order' for Europe, which would allow the Germans to create grateful allies among the regions' minorities, others recommended giving self-determination to the Bretons and the Basques. They even looked forward to putting similar ideas into effect across the Channel once the British had surrendered: they would detach Scotland from the United Kingdom, create a unified Ireland and give autonomy to the West of England. It was, in short, a vision of securing German hegemony in the West through a nationalities policy, a kind of mirror image of what the French and British had tried to do in eastern Europe after 1918.”
(Hitler's Empire: Nazi Rule in Occupied Europe, by Mark Mazower)

“In a contribution to the Archivfür das Studium der neueren Sprachen Eduard Eckhardt argued that folk life in Scotland had remained basically Germanic, at least in the Scots-speaking areas, and therefore Germans had more affinity with Scottish than with English, which was sothoroughly penetrated by foreign elements that itwas statistically speakingmore Romancethan Germaniclanguage. The alienation of contemporary England from its Germanic nature was mirrored in the infiltration ofthe language by nonGermanic loan words (Eckhardt 1944:86).”
“Fréville and Simon's works are based on archive sources found both in France and Germany. Weisgerberplays a central role in Fréville's account of Brittany under the German occupation; Fréville puts Weisgerber's 'cultural' activities in thecontext of a grandstratagem to divide Europe into spheres of influence. Non Mediterranean Europe would be under the domination of Germany, and the Mediterranean areawould followthe hegemonyof Rome. Werner Best, the head ofthe military administration in occupied France (1940–2) accorded Brittany a pivotal role as the southern Atlantic guard (balancing Norway in the north).To protect Europe from an Atlantic threat from the United States, defensive positions were required in Brittany and Ireland, or at least these needed tobe areas fallingwithin a strong German sphere of influence. Brittany was politically suitable because of its secessionist aspirations, and would play a key role in the setting up of a Celtic front against England, with theissue of Celtic political rights providing possible pretexts for intervention against of Celtic political rights providing possible pretexts for interventionagainst Englishinterests, in addition to its role ina classic colonial 'divideand rule' strategy in France.”

The Exception : the Unredeemable British ' National Zeitung, Essen (Goring's paper) (1.8.42) : " Friedrich List in 1846 already harboured the thoughts which since then every politically-minded German has considered worthy of realization. Like Adolf Hitler, he believed in the possibility of England listening to the voice of reason and foresight. . . . List pointed to the history of the German Hansa towns and reminded England that everything she stands for is based on the German Hanseatic spirit which turned a nation of sheep-breeders into seafarers and merchants. . . . List concluded his pamphlet by warning England that Germany would shortly be so strong that any further anti-German policy on the part of England would give rise to the. cry among the German people : ' Carthage must be destroyed.' That is indeed the cry which a strong Germany is to-day raising against England. ..." Goebbels, at Poznan (19.1.40) : "In Germany there is only one opinion about the English — destroy them." (Goebbels at Poznan, 19.1.40.) " England must be destroyed and become once more that unknown green island that she was centuries ago." (Dr. Ley, leader of the German Labour Front, Angriff, 20.12.39.) " A German Emperor spoke for the whole of Europe when there was not yet an England, nor an English language. What is happening to-day is the liquidation of the intervening period between then and now." (Alfred Rosenberg, head of the Nazi Party's Central Department for Foreign Policy, Volkischer Beobachter, 1.3.41.)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------FENNOSCANDIA---------------------------------------------------------------------------
“Hitler's interest in Scandinavia increased after his successful conquests of Denmark and Norway. His reasons were primarily strategic and economic, but he was also influenced by ideology. There were a number of high ranking Nazis—like Heinrich Himmler (1900—45) and Alfred Rosenberg (1893—1946)—who pointed to the fact that the Scandinavians were a kindred Aryan people and natural allies of Germany. Hitler wanted these countries as part of his empire, but without infringing their individuality.”
(Hitler's Wave-Breaking Concept: An Analysis of the German End-Game in the Baltic, by Henrik O. Lunde)

"The Swedish government thought that unless Sweden bent it would find itself a German state. The strength of Swedish neutrality was based on its expertise in the intelligence field and its capacity to anticipate developments in the Baltic area. In mid- April 1941, the Swedish military attache in Helsinki reported that the Finnish and German general staffs were collaborating on a technical level and that the expectation in Helsinki was that if Germany attacked the Soviet Union the Finns could regain the territory lost by the Peace of Moscow without serious fighting, and would therefore be given a chance of establishing a more satisfactory frontier. At the same time, senior officers on the active list had recruited a Finnish volunteer battalion to fight for Germany. The Finnish government did nothing to oppose this force, which they considered was more of political than military value. The German military attache in Helsinki told his Swedish counterpart that the Germans intended to attack Russia in June, and that in return for transit rights through Sweden, with the approval of the Finns, the Swedes could expect to gain the Aland Islands.”
(Scandinavia: At War with Trolls, by Tony Griffiths)

"The English intended establishing a connection with the Eastern theatre of war via Sweden. But the Swedes are determined to oppose by force of arms anybody who attacks their territory. At least that is what they say today. It would have been better if we had also taken Sweden during our campaign in the North. This state has no right to national existence anyway."
“Frielitz tells me about the situation in Denmark. Much better than in Norway. But the Danes continue to harbour a few illusions about their future as a nation. I intend to invite a large group to study in Germany.”
(The Goebbels Diaries)

"Inside Europe, the countries of Scandinavia – Denmark, Norway, Sweden, and Finland – were to be annexed to Germany."
(Visions of Victory: The Hopes of Eight World War II Leaders; Gerhard L. Weinberg)

“In the longer term, however, the plan was turn Denmark into a German province. The population were to be brought gradually to a willingness to become part of a future ‘Germanic’ Greater Reich, and pressure to do so was to be slowly increased. Hitler thought little of Renthe-Fink, who had to suffer reproaches for his ‘wishy-washy’ policy, and nor did he want in the long run to put up with the existence of a Danish monarch.”
(Germany and the Second World War: Organization and Mobilization in the German Sphere of Power, by Bernhard Kroener, Rolf-Dieter Müller, Hans Umbreit)

“We have only vague indications of the Nazis' ultimate intentions in Denmark. According to remarks made by Hitler it appears that the country was to be turned into a German province, but that Danes being 'Aryans' and 'Teutons' were meant to have a privileged status as part of the Grossgermanische Reich, the core, and the racial centre of power, in a Europe dominated by the Nazis.”
(Resistance in Western Europe, by Bob Moore)
 
“There was no doubt anout the ultimate objective: ‘Denmark’s de facto inclusion in the Greater German area’. This represented a ‘natural and in the long run inevitable development’, because ‘as a military indispensable bridge to the Norwegian Atlantic position, vital to Germany’, this country was never to be given up.”
“Annexation of the country and its transformation into a Reich Gau were not originally considered. At most, frontier adjustments were to be effected at some time or another. Only later, following the serious deterioration of German-Danish relations in the autumn of 1942, Hitler in his irritation determined to turn the northern neighbour into a German province, ‘because he needs Norway to keep Britain in check, and for that purpose possession of Denmark is indispensable’.
(Germany and the Second World War: Organization and Mobilization in the German Sphere of Power, by Bernhard Kroener, Rolf-Dieter Müller, Hans Umbreit)

“Heinrich Himmler and his SS, for istance, planned for the resurrection of a Greater Franconian-Germanic Reich in which a German Reich commissioner would take charge of Switzerland while central and southern Sweden would be incorporated into Germany. When economic experts both in the Reich economic ministry and in private companies discussed and planned the Großwirtschaftsraum (Greater Economic Space), they firmly anticipated some control over neutral countries such as Sweden, Switzerland and Spain.”
“In 1940, Hermann Göring suggested that, in a future, even larger, Großdeutschland, Sweden would occupy a position much like Bavaria. In a similar vein, Heinrich Himmler, when planning for the resurrection of a Greater Franconian-Germanic Reich, looked forward to the incorporation of central and southern Sweden into Germany. The AA was more ‘generous’ in its views on the future role of Sweden. Werner von Grundherr, head of the Northern Department of the AA, compared Sweden’s position-to-be to that of Hungary and Slovakia.”
(Nazi Germany and neutral Europe during the second world war, by Christian Leitz)

"In that case, what would happen to the United States? They would be territorially intact. But one day England will be obliged to make approaches to the Continent. And it will be a German-British army that will chase the Americans from Iceland."
(Hitler's Table Talk 1941-1944)

“But early in 1940, German Grand Admiral Erich Raeder had endorsed a proposal to seize Iceland and occupy the Canary Islands for use as bases from which an attack on the US Navy could be launched.”

No, just.... "Manira" means "Breaking" in tagalog.

Oh! Now I understand. That’s an unfortunate, and I fear inevitable, coincidence. Are you familiar with the romanization of Japanese? en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Romaniza…

I don’t speak Tagalog but apparently “Manira” could also mean “reside; dwell”:

That would be a nice meaning.

Sweden, Norway and Denmark are completely annexed. Finland should be more or less incorporated/annexed as a federated state.
