Great Fright and miseries of Germans:

During preparation of Hitler’s war of expansion and ethnic cleansing

Berthold Brecht published a collection of short stories in the form of short play scenes between 1935-38 in several dailies outside Germany recounting the plight, fright and miseries of the population during the Nazi preparation for wars of expansion and ethnic cleaning.

Everything was geared for military preparation at the expense of decent daily living: more engine, more airplanes, more tanks

The German people suffered a lot and were reduced to almost famine conditions and perpetual fear of being detained during the night for reasons unknown to them.

Concentration camps for Germans mushroomed and torture was a daily staple throughout the land and nobody knew what was the daily order of this regime or its plans.

These are a few of the introductions to each piece:

There are the widows and orphans: To them promises are made for better days. First, they have to sacrifice and pay the taxes. Meanwhile, the price of meat is unreachable. Better days are not for tomorrow.

Working for meals and a pair of old boots is not so bad. I want to learn how to get paid for my works: I already learned what it is to work since I was 14.

He was freed from the concentration camp for re-education. His friends and his wife are terribly worried: did he talk? He was tortured all day long. At night, he was very quiet. Did he talk?

Those who informed on you are not sleeping well. It is not over yet: Each night is not the last one.

You see the guards of the camps for the German people who exhibited semi-reluctance to total loyalty to the Hitler. Those guards who are reduced to torture and oppress their citizens for a salary of misers.

The judges are ordered: “What is useful to the German people is the Just alternative verdict

How could the judges know what is useful to the German people? Nobody knew what the Nazi regime actually wanted or thought was good. And the judges had to exercise justice till all the people are incarcerated in order to safeguard their jobs.

And the surgeons and physicians, paid by the piece, have no alternative but to do patch up jobs on the victims that the torturers and executioners expedited to them.

And the scientists are to be contented with inexact physics theories, as long the sources and origin of the theories are typically Aryan.

If you are from the working class, your only right is to say thanks for whatever job they extended to you, and then pay your tribute of blood and sweat for the machinery of war.

And the troops got moving. No one said No. All of you are to keep your silence. Anyone dared say “This is not our war?”

Every students should be transformed into a potential informer. Teaching is based on this slogan:

Who can say something on his neighbour? Every child must become a hero and dare bring the torturer home to arrest one of his parents, traitor to Hitler, for unkind reasonable remarks and comments.

The peasant needs to feed his pig to prevent his squealing. Feeding famished pigs is against the law: All milk and cereals are to feed the soldiers and military apparatus.

The propagandist Goebbels-type give voice to the people: Between the micro and the tongue, they show their claws and fangs.

No bread, no milk, no butter. And it is cold and the voter is hungry. Yet, he is hurrying to vote for the Fuhrer.

It is easier for the kid to die: They fear more that the teacher blame them for cowardice.
