Remember All That Talk About Guillotines In The US? Did You Know That Nazis Used Them To Execute 16,000 People?

If you recall, back in the days of the usurper, Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah, there were several stories out about guillotines being purchased and placed in FEMA camps.  To my knowledge, as hard as I tried to actually verify the stories, it was always from some mysterious, anonymous source with no evidence.  I’m not saying the stories aren’t true, but I am saying I’ve not seen evidence for them.  Nurse and nutritionist Kate Shemirani shared with me some of her research into Nazi Germany, specifically, a chilling revelation about the use of guillotines to deal with many dissidents.  As you read this, keep in mind that the Nazis didn’t actually lose.  They merely were transplanted and are among us today.

Most people think of the French Revolution when they consider the guillotine, but nearly a decade ago, the story of the guillotine’s use in Nazi Germany surface in The Daily Mail.

Today, we associate the guillotine with the brutality of the French Revolution, when 16,549 men and women were executed by the device. However, the Nazis were equally devoted to it.  They are thought to have beheaded almost as many victims as the French Reign of Terror during their 12 horrific years in power.

The Nazis’ use of the guillotine came disturbingly to light again over the weekend, when the guillotine used to chop off the head of one of the regime’s youngest and bravest opponents was re-discovered in the basement of the Bavarian National Museum in Munich.

Experts have concluded that the guillotine, which has been hidden in a store room for decades, was responsible for the beheading of the 21-year-old Sophie Scholl on February 22, 1943.

Her ‘crime’ was to have been a leading member of the White Rose movement, which had peacefully resisted the regime by writing anti-Nazi leaflets and distributing them around university students in Munich.

Sophie was the first of her fellow conspirators to be led to her death, which took place within just three hours of being found guilty by the rabidly Nazi judge, Roland Freisler, in his People’s Court, notorious for its kangaroo trials.

At 5pm that day, she was led from the cell she shared with her brother Hans and their friend Christoph Probst, also members of the White Rose movement. According to one account, Sophie walked proudly across the yard to a small building, which contained the guillotine.

Before being strapped down, Sophie is said to have uttered these, her last words: ‘How can we expect righteousness to prevail when there is hardly anyone willing to give himself up individually to a righteous cause? Such a fine sunny day, and I have to go, but what does my death matter, if through us, thousands of people are awakened and stirred to action?’

Within seconds, the young woman’s head lay in a bloodied basket. She was just one of the 3,009 people despatched by Nazi Germany’s leading executioner, Johann Reichhart, who was later to claim that Sophie was the bravest person he had killed.

Within the hour, Reichhart had also beheaded Hans Scholl and Christoph Probst. Hans is reputed to have shouted ‘Long live freedom!’ as he was marched across the prison yard.

It is often forgotten that, when the Nazis took office, they were  initially cautious about using the death penalty. Their grip on power was not as firm as it would come to be and they were aware that public opinion might turn against them if they executed too many of their own citizens.

At Plotzensee Prison, for example, where the execution described in Hans Fallada’s novel takes place, only 45 people were put to death from 1933 to 1936 — a figure that would be dwarfed in years to come. In those early years of the Nazi regime, Hitler was concerned by the idea that, across Germany, methods of judicial execution varied. There was the guillotine, but also hanging, shooting, and perhaps most medieval of all, the axe.

Hitler therefore established a commission to standardise the way in which he would put supposedly miscreant citizens to death. At first, the Fuhrer was reluctant to use the guillotine, as it carried with it the alarmist image of the French Reign of Terror. He preferred to remove people to the concentration camps.

‘At least we have not set up a  guillotine,’ Hitler said in a news-paper interview at the end of 1933. ‘Even the worst elements have only needed to have been separated from the nation.’

However, in October 1936, acting on the advice of his justice minister, Franz Gurtner, Hitler decided that the guillotine should be Nazi Germany’s preferred method of execution. Twenty guillotines were secretly ordered — and distributed to prisons across the Reich.

Over the following eight-and-a-half years, some 16,500 souls were killed with the device. Though it was talked of as a supposedly painless way to die, there is anecdotal evidence that the brain still functions within the severed head for at least 90  seconds after the blow.

Nevertheless, one Nazi doctor was to claim absurdly that a trip to the ‘dentist was worse than the guillotine’, because the severance of any nerve endings in the beheading meant the brain would not feel any pain.

Those who were killed came from all walks of life — and all age groups. The youngest to be beheaded was Helmuth Hubener, who was just 17 when he was guillotined for distributing anti-war leaflets around Hamburg.

After he had been sentenced to death, Helmuth said to the judges: ‘Now I must die, even though I have committed no crime. So now it’s my turn, but your turn will come.’

The sentencing of a child to death appalled many. Even members of the Gestapo appealed for  clemency. However, at 8.13 on the evening of October 27, 1942, Helmuth was beheaded.

For executioners such as Sophie Scholl’s killer Johann Reichhart, the Nazi boom in the use of the guillotine made them wealthy. Those who dropped the blade  were paid 3,000 Reichsmarks per year — and received a 65  Reichsmark bonus per  execution. Reichhart made enough to buy a villa in an affluent  Munich suburb.

Cruelly, the Nazis even charged the families of those they had imprisoned and beheaded. For every day that a prisoner was held, a fee of 1.50 Reichsmarks was charged. The executions cost 300 Reichsmarks. Even the 12 pfennig cost of posting the invoice was demanded back by the Nazi state.

On October 12, 1943, another member of the White Rose sat in his prison cell waiting for the guillotine. His name was Willi Graf, and he had acted as a recruiter for the group.

He wrote to his family that morning. ‘On this day I’m leaving this life and entering eternity,’ he wrote. ‘What hurts me most of all is that I am causing such pain to those of you who go on living.’

They had no idea that Willi had been beheaded and found out the truth only when a letter they sent to him was returned, stamped with the bald word ‘Deceased’.

His own letter reached the Graf family a few days later.

It is likely that Willi met his fate on the same guillotine as Sophie Scholl. In fact, several hundred — perhaps more than 1,000 — died on this piece of macabre machinery.

I don’t bring this story to frighten people.  Rather, I’m sharing this with you for a reason.  First, know that the people running the show are corporate fascists, which the Nazis were, but this is also prevalent in the psuedo-science we have seen over the past few years, and even decades.

The murderous intent of Big Pharma, global cabal criminals and politicians who pimp their products is on full display for all to see.  Therefore, know that if you will not resist them to your last breath, they have sadistic horrors they would seek to impart to you.  Just as the German Nazis needed to be stopped, but sadly were largely moved West and now are in every sphere of our society, today’s Nazis, hiding under “Americanism” need to be stopped, and the only people who can stop them is us.
