In 1628 a man of high position, mayor of Bamberg, Johann Junius imprisoned for practicing witch craft secretly wrote a letter to his daughter, Veronika. “A hundred thousand times good night my dearest daughter Veronica. Guiltless I am in this prison, guiltless I have been tortured and guiltless I have to die. Whosoever comes in here has to be a “Druder” (warlock) and is tortured until he admits to something which he has invented in his mind. I will tell you what happened to me. The first time I was interrogated Dr. Braun, Dr. Koetzendoerfer and two foreign Drs. (the inquisitors) were there. Dr. Braun asked me: “good fellow” how come you are here? I answered: Through falsehood and misfortune. Listen here, he said: you are a Druder. Do you want to admit it willingly, if not we have witnesses with the hangman at their side. I begged the men, for god’s sake, they are all false witnesses. But they did not care and only said that the hangman will force me. And then, God have mercy, the hangman put the thumbscrews on that the blood spurted out and I could not use my hands for four weeks which you can see from my bad writing. After that I was pulled up in torture eight times. I thought heaven and earth are perishing. And all of that stark naked. Dearest child. In order to escape the horrible torture I told sheer lies. I had to name a few persons. I did not know anybody. And so they named Dietmeyer, and I had to name him. My dearest child. Here you have my lies, may God help me. God in heaven knows that I do not know anything for which I have to die. Dearest child, I know that you are as pious as I and if I may advice you take all the money and other assets and for half a year go on a pilgrimage or just leave. Dear child. This writing keep well-hidden otherwise I will be horribly tortured and the guards will be beheaded. I worked a couple of days on this letter, I am in a bad way. I beg of you for the sake on account of the last judgment day, guard this writing well and pray for your father. Good night then. Your father Johannes Junius will never see you again.”

Commissioned by Rom two Dominican monks published the book: Der Hexenhammer. Pope Innocent VIII (1432-1492) wrote the preface. “With glowing desire we wish that the Catholic faith grow and the heretical evil is eradiated. With deep pain we hear that persons of both sexes sin with the devil either by lying under him or on top of him.” After cohabitation with the devil, the persons belonged to him, he rewards them with being able to engage in malevolent magic. A favorite pastime of the witches was to take away men’s penises. The following story is in the Witches Hammer: A young man had through magic lost his penis. He suspected a witch in Worms. He went to her and she told him to climb a certain tree. The young man found a nest in which were several male members. When he wanted to take a big one, the witch told him: “No, not that one that belong to a priest.” We find the Witches Hammer macabre, absurd and grotesque. But people listened and believed the stories with the same putrid delight with which we watch horror movies. We love to be scared.

But do not feel enlightened, modern and good about yourself. Just read holocaust literature. You find the same macabre, absurd and grotesque content as in the Witches Hammer. I know as a fact that the American public listens with the same delight to the lurid, absurd and grotesque tales of the Holocaust survivors. Let me talk of another Johann Junius of the “enlightened” twentieth century, Rudolf Hoess. Rudolf Hoess was a former commander of Auschwitz. Under torture and alcohol he signed a document which was used as a key document at the MIT trial at Nuremberg and which could not be questioned. After the war Hoess he had gone into hiding. His wife was threatened with deportation to the Russians and a firing squad. But what broke her will to keep her husband’s hiding place a secret was the threat that her children would wind up in a Siberian work camp. (Sauckel had ten children. The same threat was used on him). Mrs. Hoess’s children were also interrogated and intimidated. She told her interrogators the farm were her husband was working under the alias, Franz Lang. A British Jew, Sergeants Bernard Clarke and five secret policemen found Hoess, rammed a flashlight into his mouth that he could not bite on a cyanide capsule which his captors thought he might have in his mouth. Naked he was put on a butcher’s block and beaten to such an extent that a Doctor intervened and told his tormenters, that if they would not stop they would have a corpse.

In torture nudity plays a great role in the dehumanization of the victim. Johann Junius was tortured in the nude, Hoess was tortured in the nude and Jesus Christ was crucified in the nude. After the initial torment whiskey was put down Hoess’s throat. But Clarke prevented him from falling asleep by thrusting a stick under his eyes: “Keep your pig eyes open, you swine.” Nude he was put into a cell where for three days he was tortured until he confessed what the accusers wanted to hear. Hoess’s confessions are written in English, a language which Hoess did not know and are absurd. He just might have wanted them to be absurd that later generations would realize that these confessions could not be true. But instead of looking at the absurdity of these confessions the “German” (Judea’s willing executioners) government enshrined these confession as a “religion” which has to be believed by law (&130). Just recently 96 year old Groening was put into prison. (He recently died in prison) He was a bookkeeper at Auschwitz. He was not condemned for having committed a personal crime, but simply for having been there. Groening did not want to spend his remaining days in prison and therefore confessed to having seen atrocities which like Johann Junius he invented. Monika Schaefer right now is imprisoned in the Stadelheim prison in Munich. Her relatives in Canada, completely under the spell of the “Witches Hammer” betrayed her to the German government and told them that she would attend the trial of Sylvia Stolz, another “witch.” The present day German government continues on where the Allies had stopped namely to accuse and punish their own countrymen. In his book: Das Recht in Siergerhand (Justice in the Hand of the Victors) Franz W. Seidler wrote: The Nuremberg trials against the accused, convicted and hanged Germans was a crime in itself. It contradicted all the values of the civilized world and has done nothing to establish a more peaceful world. More wars have been fought by the main accuser at Nuremberg, the USA (70 % of the personal at Nuremberg were Jews) than ever before. Again the war clouds are hanging over us. If war comes it will be a nuclear war, and that will be the end. Back to Hoess. He was handed over to the Poles and hanged at Auschwitz.
