#OTD #OnThisDay from Himmler's Appt Book, June 8, 1941: Himmler arrived at the office this Sunday morning and had an intriguing meeting with SS-Obersturmbannführer Bender at 1145.
Bender was the Superior SS- and Police Judge on Himmler's staff. Himmler in particular was interested in a penal unit of the SS-Totenkopf Division.
This had been established as a punishment unit by Theodor Eicke the first Commander of the concentration camps to avoid incarcerating them in the camps themselves.

Homicide always requires a certain hubris: a pride that vaunts the "wants" or "needs" of the killer over the life of the killed.

That hubris is now on display with a posting from "Auntie Lynn."
That posting directs itself to the women of Georgia (and other States adopting "#heartbeat" #abortion restrictions).

The posting pretends to be an invitational note from an old Auntie who lives in New York. Well, no, it is an invitation so it isn't a pretense in that respect.
The pretense is that it comes from one's Aunt rather than from folks involved in #murdering #uterine #children for hire. Auntie Lynn wants poor repressed mothers in #Georgia and elsewhere to know that #abortions will still be available to them in #NewYork.

@maggieNYT is her own special #freakshow. Reads that #Edelweiss was playing at the #WH, sees Nazis in the woodwork. #Edelweiss, the SHOW TUNE, did not exist during the lifetime of #AdolfHitler or of the #ThirdReich.
It was written by the hit machine team of Rodgers and Hammerstein, for their 1958 Broadway smash hit, "The Sound of Music."
The #SOM loosely rendered the story of the meeting and marriage of the Von Trapps, and their escape from the Third Reich's annexation of Switzerland via the Anschluss.

1/ Featured today: RuSHA trial prosecution doc NO-1615: decree signed by Ulrich Greifelt re obtaining Polish children for Germanization. "It is necessary that they are subjected to a racial & psychol process of selection; those considered racially valuable will be Germanized..."
"age 6-12 will be sent to German Folkschools, age 2-6 boarded with families designated by Lebensborn." Childless SS families preferred. "Special attn to be given that the phrase 'Polish children suitable for Germanization' not reach the public."
3/ Children spent 6 weeks at Brockau (Bruczkow), in a palace taken over for this purpose. Later they were housed in a convent in Kalisz. Those who passed selection sent on to Germany. Other sources say remainder sent to concentration or labor camps, most died. (Pic: Brockau)
