The Bajuwari are almost certainly nothing but Langobards and Thuringians under a
different name. In turn, according to T?ken, Knipper and Alt (in Kulturwandel in
Mitteleuropa, p. 36) the "groups that historical sources call Langobards in
Moravia and Lower Austria, where probably Thuringians, who in their new
settlements revived an older name that was associated with that region 300 years
earlier during the Markomanni wars."
3. Another Point of View re Ireland in
Ireland, Nazis, and victimization (Chotkowski)
Ireland remained neutral in World War II not because the Irish were pro-Nazi,
but because they were anti-British. Some 80 years later, few realize how bitter
and vicious the Irish struggle for independence was (e.g., the Easter Rising,
the Black & Tans, etc.). Eamon De Valera himself was condemned to death by the
British, and only escaped the fate of his comrades in the Easter Rising because
he was born in New York.
The Irish implemented their neutrality in ways that favored the Allies. German
diplomats were restricted in their activities (e.g., no use of encoded
telegrams) so they could not gather military intelligence. Irish citizens were
permitted to enlist in the British armed forces, and Allied air crews forced to
land in Ireland were released instead of being interned.
During the war, Ireland suffered shortages of foodstuffs and other necessities,
not because of the war, but as a result of British policy. The Brits used their
NAVICERT (i.e., navigation certificate, without which no merchant ship could
cross the Atlantic) system unnecessarily to restrict Irish imports. Given these
shortages, the Irish capacity to admit refugees was limited.
Ambassador Joseph P. Kennedy was not pro-Nazi; he was a pessimist by nature, and
feared that a second world war would lead to an economic and social collapse of
Europe and America. Thus in the summer of 1939 he told a colleague that he
hoped Britain would betray Poland, rather than start a war. His call in the
1930s for dictator and democratic countries to try to get along was no different
in principle from calls in the 1950s and 1960s for the
peaceful coexistence of communist and capitalist countries. Just as supporters
of peaceful coexistence were not necessarily pro-Communist, so Kennedy was not
I submit that whether a European nation was pro-Nazi or anti-Nazi was not a
function of religion or ancient tribal history going back to Roman times, but
rather a result of geography, national aspirations, and attitude toward the
Versailles peace settlement.
Thus Catholic Lithuania welcomed the Germans in 1941 because it hoped to regain
the independence lost to the Soviets in 1940, and Protestant Latvia and Estonia
welcomed them for exactly the same reason. The Catholic Poles and Czechs,
annexed by Germany, were anti-Nazi, but the Catholic Slovaks were pro-Nazi
supported their independence from the Czechs. Similarly the Hungarians
(Catholic and Protestant) hoped the Germans would help them regain lost
territory in Ruthenia and Transylvania.
All civilized nations have legal systems that distinguish between victims and
victimizers; this includes, among others, European nations and nations settled
by Europeans. It is also true that people are less sensitive to the plight of
victims other than themselves, and that in the course of history victims can
become victimizers. I do not agree that Hindus and Jews are exceptional. When
they have power and feel threatened, Hindus and Jews behave no differently (no
better and no worse) than others: the Hindus in postwar India, the Jews in
