Hitler himself attempted to contribute to molding America’s image of his New Order. In an interview with the Hearst correspondent Karl von Wiegand, he pointed out that Germany was one of the few countries that had never made any attempt to meddle in American affairs, and to reassure those Americans alarmed by reports of Nazi activities in Latin America he said, “Germany has never had any territorial or political design on the American continent, and has none at present.”
(Hitler's War Aims, Ideology, the Nazi State and the Course of Expansion, Norman Rich)

"If the British Empire collapsed to-day, it would be thanks to our arms, but we'd get no benefit, for we wouldn't be the heirs. Russia would take India, Japan would take Eastern Asia, the United States would take Canada."
"The Americans will certainly take Canada, and they may well have other demands which Britain will not tolerate; the result must be unbroken and intense tension."
(Hitler's Table Talk 1941-1944)

“But in German eyes Canada had, in fact, no authentic image or identity distinct from that of a lackey of England or a pawn of America. Reporting on 14 September 1944 on the Quebec conferences, Volkischer Beobachter would endorse what it perceived as the British view that Canada was a "no man's land between Empire and USA." Even as late as January 1945, Canada presented no clear identity for the crew of U-Dobratz (U-1232). They regarded Halifax quite simply as Amerika, and spoke of "teaching the Yankees a lesson.”

“As with Australia, Germany finds that the simplest solution of the future of Canada is to annex her to the United States of America. "Canada and Australia could seek union with their more powerful neighbours." (Die Woche January 31st, 1940) . "There can be no doubt that Canada belongs to America." (Dr. Max Clauss in Berlin-Rome- Tokio, quoted by Trans-ocean News Service November 15th, 1940) . But within this plan there is another plan. The Americas from the Yukon down to Cape Horn will be presided over by Nazi Gauleiters already training alongside those destined to rule the British Isles. "At the German Universities there are special courses which young men can attend in order to learn to become Gauleiters in Britain and the Americas. One such course in Berlin University had six hundred students, who have already received specialized education and are now being given the final polish to fit them to become Gauleiters of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and other states and provinces in the United States and Canada." (Walter Tschuppik in Die Zeitung, November 3rd, 1941) .“

“As part of a Fascist intent to conduct a smear campaign in the United States, the Nazi propagandists promised that Germany would return expropriated land to Native Americans. Convinced that Indians possessed little loyalty to America, Goebbels predicted that they would revolt rather than fight Germany.”
(Crossing the Pond: The Native American Effort in World War II, By Jere B. Franco)

“In the 1930, the German American Bund, a Nazi organization in the United States, welcomed certain Native Americans as members of a pure warrior race and even had the German minister of propaganda, Joseph Goebbels, proclaim that Indians were honorary Aryans, or members of the same racial group as Germans. When the war started, Goebbels also promised that if Germany won, Native American tribes would get back the land stolen from them.27 Richard Neuberger, a freelance writer, offered a rejoinder to the propaganda in the widely popular American weekly magazine the Saturday Evening Post. According to Neuberger, a Nazi radio broadcast had “predicted an Indian uprising in the United States,” should Native Americans be “asked to fight against the Axis.” There was, according to Neuberger, a certain degree of elementary logic in Nazi propaganda. In the name of American progress, Native Americans had been slaughtered, dispossessed of their lands, forcibly stripped of many aspects of their tribal cultures, and left the poorest of the nation's poor. “How could the American Indians think of bearing arms for their exploiters?” Radio Berlin was re- ported to have rhetorically asked.”
(Code Talkers and Warriors: Native Americans and World War II, by Tom Holm)

“At the same time, in the 1930s, Joseph Goebbels's propaganda ministry initiated an: effort to lure American Indians into a favorable view of Nazism. . . . Nazi propagandists linked the communist path to which FDR ostensibly committed America with the “Jewish world plot” and racism . . . As Germany had pledged an offensive to combat the Jewish world menace, Nazis could not permit further exploitation of Indians by Jewish-controlled America. . . . To conceal the full implication of racial doctrine, propagandists veiled their ideology with the inclusion of Native Americans as Aryans . . . The explanation advanced the idea that a lost Germanic people had wandered into the New World in the distant past and bred themselves into the native population, thus building a link to German ancestry.68 The Nazis bet on the alienation of Indians from the United States government, which had “historically relegated” them “to extinction through warfare or federal Indian policies [while] Germany admitted some Indians to full Aryan status and viewed all Native Americans as potential bearers of German culture.” One Nazi propagandist posited that if the United States and Germany were to eventually wage war against one another, “How could the American Indians think of bearing arms for their exploiters'?” According to German anthropologist Colin Ross, who toured western states and Indian reservations in 1934 and 1936, a “red state” was needed to create a separate nation not controlled or interfered with by the US. federal government.”
(Peoples of the Earth, by Martin Edwin Andersen)

“It is interesting to note that Ross's suggestion of a "red state" paralleled in time a similar consideration by Hitler of a Jewish state on the island of Madagascar.”
(World War II and the American Indian, by Kenneth William Townsend)

“He saw a chance to carve out his own Nazi fiefdom in the heart of America. In 1931, Nieland declared that the New York group would form the nucleus of a new "Gau [region] USA." The reorganized party soon expanded to other cities, where it put the remnants of the rival Teutonia out of business. The "League [Bund] of the Friends of the New Germany" became the official Nazi organization in this country. The Bund was born. The league divided the United States into three Gaue, East, Middle West, and West. Heinz Spanknobel, a young German photoengraver, assumed the title Bundesfiihrer or Bundes letter (League Leader or League Director). Spanknobelreceived financial assistance and advice from the Nazi party, as well as from Germanconsular officials. Spanknobel convinced Deputy Fuhrer Rudolf Hess that thousands of GermanAmericans were waiting for the new leadership that he offered them.”

„MIT DEN BEIDEN AUF DER FÜHRERTAGUNG im August 1933 in Chicago bestätigten ersten Bundesbefehlen legten die Freunde des Neuen Deutschland eine neue, für Ortsgruppen auf dem Gebiet der USA und Kanadas geltende Organisationsstruktur fest. Die Richtlinien, die Spanknöbel entworfen hatte und die in Chicago zur Abstimmung kamen, entsprachen den Organisationsgrundlagen der NSDAP im Reich. Das Einflußgebiet des Bundes wurde danach in vier Gaue unterteilt. Neben dem Gau Kanada, der von Hans Strauss in Detroit, USA, geleitet wurde, unterhielten die Freunde des Neuen Deutschland drei weitere Gaue auf dem Territorium der Vereinigten Staaten. Es handelte sich hierbei um den Gau Ost, den Hans Stolzenburg von New York aus betreute, den Gau Midwest, der Fritz Gissibl in Chicago unterstand, und den Gau West, dem Robert Pape vorstand und der von Los Angeles aus die Geschäfte der FONG führte. Als Sitz der Bundesleitung bestimmte Heinz Spanknöbel das Hauptquartier des Gaues Ost in der Lexington Avenue in New York City, das auch mit der Abkürzung EFDENDE bezeichnet wurde.“

“to enable the Bund to carry out its mission, an elaborate national organization was developed.” Again modelled on the Party structure of the National Socialists in Germany, the Bund was organized in pyramidal fashion. In accordance with the Nazi leadership principle, a national leader and his executive committee occupied the highest rank in the Bund. Directly beneath the national Fuhrer, whose headquarters were in Montreal, stood three district leaders. These district leaders controlled Bund activities in the three main divisions of Canada—the eastern district (Quebec and the Maritimes), the middle district (Ontario), and the western district (the four western provinces). The three districts were further divided into subdistricts. For each subdistrict a leader was appointed, with the task of overseeing the activities of the local units of the Bund in his section. These units, which were known as Ortsgruppen and Stützpunkte, each had their own leaders.”
(Brothers beyond the sea: national socialism in Canada, by Jonathan Frederick Wagner)

“At the height of popularity in 1937-38, membership in the organization likely did not exceed 2,000 However, the Bund was well organized with a headquarters in Montreal and three Districts – the eastern Gau (Quebec plus the Maritimes), the middle Gau (Ontario) and the western Gau (the western provinces). Each Gau was further subdivided into Ortsgruppen that would have fifteen or more members or Stützpunkt with five members. In Alberta, both Edmonton and Calgary had Ortsgruppen, and “a few scattered Stützpunkt existed beyond these centres.”
(On the Way!: the Military History of Lethbridge, Alberta, by Christopher R. Kilford)

“Nationally the Bund was divided into eastern, middle and western Gaue (administrative districts). The western Gau was divided provincially with Saskatchewan forming a separate unit (Gebiet) within it. These units were subdivided into Bezirke These Bezirke were subdivided again into Ortsgruppen or Stutzpunkte. An Ortsgruppe had fifteen or more members; a Stiitzpunkt contained a minimum of five members. Within this hierarchy the leadership principle prevailed where all members would, in theory, obey those higher up in the hierarchy. The Gau leader obeyed the national leader in Montreal, the Gebiet were guided by the Gau leadership, Bezirk leaders headed the orders of the Gebiet and the local Ortsgruppen and Stiitzpunkte obeyed the wishes of the Bezirk leaders.”

“On 25 July Hitler had still envisaged ‘dealing sharply with the USA’ after the conclusion of the Russian campaign, but in ‘table talk’ at operational headquarters on 10 September he repeated the view he had held in the 1920s that it would be for future generations to fight the decisive battle against the USA. ‘I shall not live to see it, but I rejoice for the German people that one day Britain and Germany will march together against America. Germany and England will know what each expects from the other. When that happens we shall have found the right ally.’ On 25 October 1941 he repeated this idea to Ciano, the Italin Foreign Minister: ‘A later generation will have to deal with the problem of Europe versus America. By that time it will not be a question of Germany or England, of Fascism, National Socialism or conflicting systems, but of then common interests of Europe as a whole within the European economic sphere with its complementary areas in Africa.’
(The Third Reich, by Klaus Hildebrand)

“ Three weeks later, Bullitt cabled Hull that he had been informed by a reputable source (Otto von Bismarck, the German charge d'affaires in London) that Hitler had been boasting of taking Czechoslovakia as a prelude to a conquest of all Europe. As a sequel, sometime in 1941 Hitler was expected to try to "conquer the United States by a joint attack with Japan on North and South America." Bullitt said he was certain that Hitler had made these statements.”
(Latin America and the transformation of U.S, by David G. Haglund)

“That night I heard mentioned for the first time the general outlines of the future great German overseas Reich. I was amazed to hear that Hitler was reaching out to the Pacific. Above all, he was interested in the former great German island empire, embracing the Dutch possessions and the whole of New Guinea. Japan must not be allowed to grow too big, Hitler remarked. It must be deflected against China and Russia. But Hitler also anticipated a Central African Dominion of Germany as well as a complete revolutionary transformation of the U.S.A. with the breakdown of the British Empire, Hitler believed he could also break Anglo-Saxon influence in North America, and substitute for it the German language and culture as a preliminary step towards incorporating the United States in the German world empire.”
“National Socialism alone is destined to liberate the American people from their ruling clique and give them back the means of becoming a great nation." Hitler had grown animated. All other conversation died away. "I shall," he continued,” undertake this task simultaneously with the restoration of Germany to her leading position in America." "In what sense, my Fiihrer?" asked Goebbels. "Have you forgotten that the declaration of German as the national language was lost by only one voice in Congress? The German component of the American people will be the source of its political and mental resurrection. The American people is not yet a nation in the ethnographical sense; it is a conglomerate of disparate elements. But it is the raw material of a nation. And the Yankees have failed to create a nation from it! They have instead kept their noses in their moneybags. Today this is being avenged. Their difficulties will become insuperable." ’’Do you mean,’’ I asked, ‘’that the German-American, rejuvenated by National Socialism, will be called to lead a new America?’’ ‘’That is exactly what I mean,’’ Hitler returned. ‘’We shall soon have an S.A. in America.”
"Who says anything of underestimation?" Hitler exclaimed angrily, as he rose to lead the way from the table. "I guarantee, gentlemen, that at the right moment a new America will exist as our strongest supporter when we are ready to take the stride into overseas space." "
(The Voice of Destruction: Conversations with Hitler 1940, by Hermann Rauschning)

“To what extent the world supremacy of the “Aryan race” was a matter of concern to Hitler becomes evident in the argument he had with Otto Strasser in May 1930, which led to Strasser's withdrawal from the party. During the course of the dispute, Hitler made many blunt references to his foreign policy. “The Nordic race,” said Hitler, “has a right to rule the world and we must make this right the guiding star of our foreign policy.” Germany's interest demanded a coalition with England, because it was about establishing “a Nordic-Germanic reign over Europe and—in connection with a Nordic-Germanic America, over the world.” When the discussion continued the following day, Hitler did not depart from his ultimate goals. Again he emphasized “our task,” “ bring about a fabu- lous organization of the world, so that every country produces that which is most suitable, while the white race, the Nordic race takes care of the organization of this gigantic plan.” “...Believe me,” continued Hitler, “all of National Socialism would be worth nothing if it were limited only to Germany and if it didn't seal its rule over the whole world for this highly valuable race for at least one to two thousand years.””
“At these two meetings, he also put into more concrete terms his picture of the “core of the Aryan race” in the world which, according to him, could lead to a final, lasting situation: “The Nordic blood which is present in England, Northern France and in North America will, in the end, join us to bring about the radical change of the world.””

“By good or evil we shall subjugate especially Rumania because of its sources of naphtha; Yugoslavia, Bulgaria, Turkey and Greece, with the aid of our brave ally, Italy. Then our way is open to the immeasurable supplies of raw materials in Africa, the country which is the natural and indisputable "living space" of Germany.”
" I have been asked about my opinion of America, especially the United States, and the danger of this pseudo-democratic Republic's possible attempts to hinder us in our historical development. There is no fear that this demoralized country will mix in this German war. In the first place, as in France and other countries, also in the United States we have many of our compatriots and even more friends among the citizens of the United States who are favorably disposed toward us.”
“The United States also will be forced by Germany to complete and final capitulation.”
“The only purpose of our offensive against the United States is forever to get rid of another bulwark of plutocracy, to regain what belongs to us, to establish order, to proportionately distribute property, and to teach America to respect Germany. With our help the dominions of former England and France will gain independence and will continue to be important markets for our products and faithful supporters of our ideas.”
(Alleged speech (1940), as reported in Life magazine 9 dic 1940. No German source known; could be allied propaganda.)

“A new world war will be unavoidable if states are not shaped on the basis of the racial Myth. America must remove the yellow race from the blossoming west. It is a future place for the culture of the Nordic race. This is of vital necessity and it stands above all other paper rights. We also demand the recognition of the racial rights of the cultured Japanese people, but not in America. It results from this that a coming North American racial state must abandon its possessions in east Asia. The Japanese from California can be resettled there. The American naval base on the Philippines will be regarded as a way of securing of American trade in east Asia. Simultaneously it could be a base for attack in case of a war. That is certainly necessary from the viewpoint of the cartel imperialism of today. This is no longer vitally important for North America once it has separated its alien racial components and begun to consciously arrange itself in its enormous living space between the Atlantic and the Pacific. The era of boundless expansion has ended with a world war and with the world rule of money. Today we begin the era of inner concentration which will produce a racially organically sectioned state system, To grasp these ideas consciously, and to work for their carrying through, all philosophers, historians and statesmen of all peoples are called upon today. The folkish idea is falsified today by the international capitalists. In that struggle between the states, every measure, indeed every idea, which can have a settling effect is suppressed.”

Maddrix: "What does Alfred Rosenberg have to say about National Socialism in North America?" Roland: "Again in his book 'The Mythus of the Twentieth Century,' Rosenberg wrote": After throwing off the worn-out idea, [on] which it was founded. . . i.e. after the destruction of the idea [democracy] represented by New York, the United States of America has the great task of setting out with youthful energy to put into force the new racial-state idea which a few awakened Americans have already foreseen. Prosecutor Maddrix: "What else, if anything does Rosenberg have to say concerning my previous question?" Witness Roland: "In a pamphlet entitled 'Nature, Principles and Aims of the NSDAP' [Nazi Party], he wrote": But National Socialism also believes that, far beyond Germany's borders, its principles and its ideology. . . will lead the way in the unavoidable struggles for power in the other countries of Europe and America. Maddrix: "What does Colin Ross [German author] have to say about National Socialism in North America?” Roland: "In his book 'Unser Amerika' — 'Our America' [Sub-title: The German Portion of the United States — 1936] — he developed the idea that the best in American life and civilization has been contributed by the German element in this country. He urges that German element to become conscious of its racial heritage and to prepare for the day when it may take over control of this country."

It is hidden — it is an unknown Germany, though it may comprise millions of German beings. . . . That is an unknown Germany in America. . . . But all the same it is the basic element of the future development of Germanism in America. And the future of Germanism in America is secure because there still exists a true German peasantry."

Very few people know that for many years Hitler has had a secret hobby. Mexico. The Fuehrer is an expert on this subject. He has read dozens of "books on Mexico and has even established a special Mexican division in von Ribbentrop’s office, which is responsible not to von Ribbentrop, but to Hitler himself. Hermann Rauschning, former President of the Senate of the City of Danzig, discusses this fact at great length in his "Conversations with Hitler", Hitler once told Otto Strasser, while the latter was still in his good graces, "Yes, colonies, — these are only moral victories. But to possess a land like Mexico, how wonderful that would be for Germany. What we could accomplish with all these riches— oil, cotton, silver, everything that German industry needs, exploited by German methods of organization."

Fraktur is pretty difficult to read, so better to use it as little as possible. It's not necessary for the Japanese map, is it?
Totentanz0 Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2014
I don't find Fraktur (Tannenberg Fett in this case) that difficult to read, at least when using a big character size like this one.
I too think that it's not extremely appropriate for the romaji in the Japanese section and I tried to find a more suitable font, but to no avail. Every other one looked (as) strange beside the Japanese characters. So I decided to use only the two fonts you see here.
VoCSe Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2014
The Nazis actually banned the script in 1941, suddenly declaring it Jewish after initially embracing it. For what it's worth, that would be one reason not to bother with it on either map.
Totentanz0 Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2014
Very true. That’s a strong objection. I was aware of the Antiqua–Fraktur dispute…
For that reason I refrained from using a random Fraktur font. Until I found the Tannenberg font… which was widely used in Nazi propaganda (it even has two Algiz runes). It was created in the 30s when Fraktur was the preferred Nationalsocialist typeface.
The later preference for Antiqua, probably largely based on the practicality of that script for foreign propaganda, reminds me of a similar Japanese policy. The use of the Kana syllabaries was preferred over Kanji for the teaching and spreading of a simplified Japanese in occupied territories, even in Manchuria. There were also proposals for the total elimination of Chinese characters. In the contex of Japanese nationalism before and during WWII there was even an interest for Jindai-Moji… allegedly purely Japanese symbols from before the introduction of Chinese characters.

My personal favourite would be Neu-Jorwik. York was called Jórvík under Scandinavian domination. Another possibility could be Neu-Amsterdam, from the old Dutch name of New York.
