The most important date in the XX century – and very probably in the whole modern human history – is June 22nd, 1941. On that date, German Wehrmacht and Waffen SS launched Operation Barbarossa – a de-facto preventive strike on the Bolshevist Soviet Union.
Although at that time Adolf Hitler and his generals were unaware of that, German attack pre-empted the Soviet attack on Germany by no more than 48 hours (most likely, less than that). In one of the sections of this book, I will prove it beyond the reasonable doubt.
By that time Adolf Hitler and the Nazis have been fighting Communism (and thus protecting the Western civilization) for over two decades. However, prior to that date, it was a political struggle, not the war. This struggle was violent at times with (prior to Nazi coming to power in Germany) casualties on both sides but still it fell far, far short of the full-fledged war.
True, Nazi Germany (its Legion Condor, to be more precise), has been involved in the Spanish Civil War fighting against the Republican government supported by the Soviet Union, but the Republicans were not exactly Communists.
Only on June 22nd, 1941 Nazi Germany began executing its Divine Mission in earnest by staring an all-out “hot” war with the Bolshevist Soviet Union. According to Egyptian and some other pagan mythologies, this is the day when the “good” God (“God of the Light”) attacks and defeats the “bad”, “dark” God – “God of the Darkness”.
The Nazis were not exactly the “Forces of Light” – as national-sociopaths, they were driven in this war by purely colonial objectives more (much more) than by anything else. Still, regardless of their perceived motivations, they were fighting to save the Western (and the whole human) civilization from being invaded, conquered and destroyed by the Bolsheviks. Ultimately rather successfully, but not completely successfully.
And as the Nazis (incorrectly) believed that they were fighting an existential war with “Judeo-Bolshevism” (they were completely wrong about the “Judeo” part), on the same day they commenced the “Final Solution of the Jewish Question”.
The Holocaust. The Shoah. A well-engineered and well-organized project that had but one diabolical objective – complete extermination of Jews in Europe. First by Einsatzgruppen death squads and from the beginning of the next spring in the gas chambers of death camps – Belzec, Sobibor, Treblinka, Chelmno, Majdanek and Auschwitz.
