about

On January 27, 1945 the Red Army liberated Auschwitz-Birkenau, where over one million people were murdered in an attempt to eradicate so-called Jews, Homosexuals, Roma and Sinti as well as any other human being that didn't fit into the Nazis' dream of a "german nation".

Today, 68 years later, we should not only commemorate those who lost their lives in this unique act of barbarism but also remind ourselves that the elements of hate - which were neatly perfected by the Nazis and those who (not-so-blindly) followed them - still exist and even play a major role in this our capitalist society. We have no reason to believe that Opportunists and Sadists will never again join forces to inflict their love of death upon the world. By ignoring that we become Culprits ourselves.

But more than everything we are obliged to celebrate every life that has been saved by the few people who stood up against fascism inside germany and the many people from outside of germany that prevented the barbarians' dream to come true.

Yet antisemitism, antiziganism and homophobia are nowhere near of becoming a thing of the past and this we cannot take too seriously. Declaring our solidarity is the very least we can do. But more importantly, when reactionaries once again begin to sing "Deutschland über alles" (both literally and metaphorically) we must stand up and tell them to shut up.

Nie wieder Faschismus.
Nie wieder Deutschland.

Track Name: Opportunist Waltz
Bis '34 war ich Sozialist,
war auch kein Beruf,
hat man auch nicht davon leben können.

Später dann ging ich demonstrieren,
zu die Schwarzen, zu die Hahnenschwanzler,
nicht, zu der Heimwehr.
Da hab ich fünf Schilling bekommen,
war ja ein Geld damals.

Dann bin ich hinüber, zu den Nazis,
zu den damaligen Nazis,
da hab ich auch fünf Schilling bekommen.

Dann ist eh schon der Hitler gekommen.
Das war ein Jubel, eine Begeisterung,
wie man es sich überhaupt nicht vorstellen kann
nach diesen furchtbaren, nach diesen traurigen Jahren.
Der Wiener hatte endlich mal wieder eine Freude,
eine Hetz, hat was gesehen.

Österreich war immer unpolitisch,
wir waren nie politische Menschen.
Ein bisschen Geld kam halt zusammen.

Wir sind gestanden, am Heldenplatz, am Ring,
man hat gefühlt, man ist unter sich.

Es war wie bei einem Heurigen,
es war wie ein riesiger Heuriger,
aber feierlich, ein Taumel.

Da sind sie einmarschiert, die Deutschen,
mit klingendem Spiel, nicht?
Die Polizisten sind dort gestanden,
mit Hakenkreuzbinden.
Fesch! Furchtbar, furchtbar!
Ein Verbrechen, wie man
diese gutgläubigen Menschen
in die Irre geführt hat.
Führer hat geführt.

Aber eine Persönlichkeit war er.
Man hat eine gewisse Größe gespürt.
Er war ja nicht groß.
Bin ja vor ihm gestanden.
Da hat er mich angesehen,
mit seinen blauen Augen,
ich hab ihn angesehen.
Dann hat er gesagt: "Ja, ja!"
Dann hab ich alles gewusst,
wir haben uns verstanden.

Until '34 I was a socialist,
wasn't a job either,
couldn't live off of that.

Later, I've been demonstrating
with the "blacks", the Hahnenschwanzler,
right, the Heimwehr [the austrofascists].
I got five schilling there,
that was some money back then.

Then I went on to the Nazis,
the Nazis back then.
There I also got five schilling.

Then Hitler came already.
That was jubilance, exaltation,
you couldn't imagine
after these horrible, after this sad years.
The Viennese finally had some joy,
a pleasure, they were coming around.

Austria was always unpolitical,
we never were political people.
Some money was collected.

We stood there, at the Heldenplatz, on the Ring,
and you felt, you are amongst the likeminded.

It was like at a Heuriger,
it was like a giant Heuriger,
but celebratory, a happening.

So they marched in, the germans,
with drums beating and flags flying.
The policemen stood there
with swastika armbands.
Fetching! Terrible, awful!
A crime how
those trustful people
were misled.
Leader has led.

But he was a personality.
You felt a certain largeness.
He wasn't tall.
I stood before him.
He looked at me,
with his blue eyes,
I looked at him.
Then he said: "Ja, ja!"
Then I knew everything,
we understood each other.
Track Name: Anschluß March
Austria was showered with swastikas.
It was the 12th of March, 1938
and Hitler hat finally emerged
from his self-imposed inactivity.

He crossed the border near
his birthplace at Braunau.
The people rejoiced
at this first act of expansion
which they saw as the fulfillment
of the old dream of the german nation.

The Anschluß, an emphatic display
of self-determination.
And the city that had seen
his early failure has now
given him a hero's reception.

From the balcony of the
Imperial Palace he announced:

Sauerkraut. Schnitzel. Schtonk.
Blah... Blah... Blah...
Track Name: Sadist Dance
Alles, was man uns da vorgeworfen hat,
das war ja falsch.

Da war bei uns im Gemeindebau,
da hatten wir einen Juden gehabt,
ein gewisser Tennenbaum.
Ansonsten ein netter Mensch.

Und da haben sie so Sachen
geschmiert, gegen die Nazis,
auf die Trottoirs, auf die Gehwege.
Und er hat's aufwischen müssen,
der Tennenbaum.
Nein, nicht er alleine,
die anderen Juden auch.
Ich hab ihn hingebracht,
damit er's aufwischt.
Der Hausmeister hat zugeschaut,
hat gelacht, der war immer
bei einer Hetz dabei.

Nach dem Krieg ist er zurückgekommen,
der Tennenbaum.
Bin ich ihm begegnet, auf der Straße.
Hab ich gesagt "Dere, Herr Tennenbaum."
Schaut er mich nicht an.
Hab ich mir gedacht:
Siehst du's, jetzt ist er böse.

###################

Everything they accused us of,
that was false.

There was with us at the Gemeindebau,
we had a jew there,
a certain Tennenbaum.
Apart from that a nice person.

And they smeared some things,
against the Nazis,
on the trottoir, the sidewalk.
And he had to clean it,
the Tennenbaum.
No, not him alone,
the other Jews too.
I brought him there
to clean it.
The janitor watched,
laughed, he always was there
for some amusement.

After the war, he came back,
the Tennenbaum.
I ran into him, on the street.
I said "Salute, Mr. Tennenbaum."
He wouldn't look at me.
I thought:
You see, now he's mad.
Track Name: Culprit Requiem
This is London Calling.
Here is a news flash:
The german radio has just announced
that Hitler is dead.

General Eisenhower informed me
that the forces of germany
have surrendered to the United Nations.
The flags of freedom fly all over Europe.
