Les Celtes et la civilisation celtique by Jean Markale

By Jean Markale

Rien n'est plus étrange et déroutant que l'histoire des Celtes, ce peuple surgi de l'obscurité vers le Ve ou le VIe siècle avant J.-C., qui conquit toute l'Europe occidentale et qui disparut sous l. a. poussée combinée des Romains et des Germains.
Disparus, les Celtes ? En apparence seulement. Pour Jean Markale, ils ont exercé sur l'Occident une effect si profonde que leur esprit demeure. En les connaissant mieux, en s'attachant à ce qu'ils ont apporté de spécifique aux idées humaines, il est sans doute attainable d'enrichir notre réflexion sur le monde de demain.

Gold in the Furnace by Savitri Devi

By Savitri Devi

Gold within the Furnace is an ardent nationwide Socialist s brilliant and relocating account of lifestyles in occupied Germany within the aftermath of global conflict II, in line with vast travels and interviews performed in 1948 and 1949. The authoress, Savitri Devi, is scathing in her description of Allied brutality and hypocrisy: hundreds of thousands of German civilians died from Allied firebombing; thousands extra perished after the warfare, pushed from their houses by means of Russians, Czechs, and Poles; greater than 1000000 prisoners of warfare perished from deliberate hunger or outright homicide in Allied focus camps; untold millions extra disappeared into slave labour camps from the Congo to Siberia. Savitri Devi describes in bright aspect how person nationwide Socialists have been subjected to de-Nazification by way of Germany s democratic liberators : homicide, torture, hunger, show-trials, imprisonment, and execution for the better echelons; petty indignities and recantations extorted below the specter of imprisonment, starvation, and the denial of livelihood for usual social gathering participants. She additionally chronicles the systematic plunder of Germany by way of the Allies: the clear-cutting of old forests, the dismantling of factories, the robbery of usual assets. despite the catastrophe, Savitri Devi didn't view it because the finish of nationwide Socialism, yet as a purification a tribulation through hearth isolating the bottom steel from the gold a prelude to a brand new starting. therefore Savitri additionally devotes chapters to proposing the elemental philosophy and the positive political programme of nationwide Socialism. Gold within the Furnace is a necessary historic rfile: of the nationwide Socialists who by no means misplaced religion, regardless of affliction, persecution, and martyrdom of the normal Germans who respected Hitler even after the warfare of the frequent rumours of Hitler s survival of the hopes of impending nationwide Socialist revival, probably within the aftermath of a 3rd international conflict of the expectancies of Soviet victory in this type of warfare and of the philosophy, stories, and precise character of a extraordinary lady. Gold within the Furnace is without doubt one of the first revisionist books on global conflict II and its aftermath. yet even supposing Savitri Devi exposes many falsehoods in regards to the focus camps, she permitted the lifestyles of homicidal fuel chambers and considered makes an attempt to disclaim the mass-extermination of Jews as intellectually cheating pandering to humanitarian sentimentality. It used to be merely in 1977, after interpreting Arthur Butz s The Hoax of the Twentieth-Century, that Savitri Devi got here to reject the principal claims of the Holocaust tale. beforehand, Gold within the Furnace has been nearly very unlikely to discover. released in a tiny version via Savitri Devi s husband A.K.
