WHAT DO THEY FEAR? WHOM DO THEY FEAR?

ZOG scum even have to fall to the level of destroying a man's grave after falsely imprisoning him for 46 years before murdering him as they feared the Prisoner of Peace so much. Notice how in parts this report from the BBC says that Rudolf Hess was 'found hanged' in Spandau Prison, not 'hanged himself' as even they know that the 'Hess committed suicide' nonsense is wearing a bit thin amongst even non-NS people.

When will they be exhuming Josef Stalin, destroying his grave (mausoleum), burning his body and throwing his ashes in the sea?

Remember, Rudolf Hess was NEVER convicted of any 'atrocities', he was convicted on spurious evidence of 'waging aggressive war' which, coming from the three most aggressive nations to ever exist on this planet, the UK, the USA and the Soviet Union, is a bit rich.

Remember, Hess flew to Britain in 1941 to sue for peace between Britain and Germany, our two kindred nations. The people who threw him into solitary confinement for 46 years and then murdered him in 1987 were the REAL criminals.

Wasn't Rudolf Hess' widow Ilse Hess and other relatives of Rudolf Hess also buried in that grave? What has happened to their remains?


Top Nazi Rudolf Hess exhumed from 'pilgrimage' grave

The grave holding the remains of Adolf Hitler's deputy Rudolf Hess has been destroyed to stop it being used as a pilgrimage site by neo-Nazis.

Hess's bones were exhumed at the graveyard in the town of Wunsiedel, southern Germany, early on Wednesday.

The remains were later cremated and are to be scattered at sea.

Hess was captured after flying to Britain in 1941 and sentenced to life in prison. He killed himself in a Berlin jail in 1987 at the age of 93.

As he requested in his will, he was buried in the small Bavarian town of Wunsiedel, where his family had a holiday home and where his parents were already interred.

The local Lutheran church which supervises the cemetery gave its permission for the burial at the time, ruling that the wishes of the deceased could not be ignored.

But they and local people have since become concerned by the number of far-right groups visiting the grave.

'Peace'

Each year on the anniversary of his death, neo-Nazis have attempted to stage a march to the cemetery, saluting the grave with its epitaph "I dared", and laying floral wreaths.

A member of the church council, Hans-Juergen Buchta, told the Associated Press news agency: "The whole town was shut down and in turmoil and there was a huge police presence. We here at the graveyard were not always able to cope."

A 2005 court order banning such gatherings had little effect so the church decided to terminate the family's lease on the grave as of October 2011.

A granddaughter of Hess objected to the decision and filed a lawsuit in an attempt to prevent it going ahead, but was eventually persuaded by the parish council to drop the case and allow the exhumation to go ahead.

Roland Schoeffel, the deputy mayor of Wunsiedel, told AFP news agency that the monument had been razed "in an operation not open to the public".

Cemetery administrator Andreas Fabel told AP news agency on Thursday: "The grave is now empty. The bones are gone."

One resident, named as Mrs Koenig, said: "Perhaps we will now have some peace when he is gone. Perhaps they won't come any more, which is what Wunsiedel wants."

Charlotte Knobloch, the head of the Jewish community in Munich and Upper Bavaria, welcomed the move.

"For decades this town and its inhabitants were terrorised by far-right extremists from all over the world," she is quoted as saying by AFP.

Hess was one of Hitler's closest aides. But in 1941 he made a solo flight to Scotland, where his plane crash-landed, in an apparently unauthorised peace mission which was denounced by the fuhrer.

He was imprisoned by the British for the duration of the war.

At the Nuremberg Trials in 1946, Hess was cleared of war crimes and crimes against humanity but convicted of crimes against peace and jailed for life.

He spent 40 years in Spandau Prison in Berlin.

He was the last remaining inmate at the prison when he was found hanged there in August 1987.

<>Authorities seek to erase memory of Rudolf Hess with ‘disappearance’ of his remains
By SIOBHAN DOWLING
<>The Guardian, London Thursday, 21 July 2011
 
BERLIN
— For the past two decades, every 17 August has seen the small Bavarian town of Wunsiedel become overwhelmed by neo-Nazi pilgrims. The far-right gathers to commemorate the death of Rudolf Hess, the [National Socialist] deputy to Adolf Hitler, who was buried in the town cemetery.


Now officials in Wunsiedel are hoping they have come up with a way of keeping the rightwing hordes away. In the early hours of Wednesday morning, Hess's remains were exhumed and the gravestone — which read "Ich hab's gewagt" or "I have dared" — has been destroyed.

With the agreement of his family members, his remains were then to be cremated and his ashes scattered at sea. The opportunity to remove the grave came when Hess's granddaughter applied for a 20-year extension of the grave's lease, which was due to expire in October.

"We decided not to extend the lease because of all the unrest and disturbances," said Peter Seisser, the chairman of the parish council.

COLLUSION WITH CHURCH PASTOR

Although some relatives initially objected to the exhumation, negotiations between the church's pastor and Hess's granddaughter resulted in the agreement to remove the remains from the town. The far-right has long considered Hess to be a "martyr to the Fatherland" and they rallied in Wunsiedel for their first march in his honor in August 1988.

One of Hitler's closest aides, Hess was captured after flying to Scotland in 1941 in a failed attempt to convince Great Britain to negotiate a peace agreement with Nazi Germany.

He was convicted of war crimes at the Nuremberg trials and sentenced to life imprisonment. Hess was the sole inmate in Spandau prison in the British-occupied part of West Berlin when he [allegedly] killed himself* on 17 August 1987 at the age of 93.

Wunsiedel's Protestant parish council reluctantly agreed at the time to honor his final wishes to be buried with his parents in the cemetery.

However, local people became increasingly annoyed with the town's status as a Nazi pilgrimage site. In 2004, the mayor, Karl-Will Beck,
launched the "Wunsiedel is colorful and not brown" campaign and, together with town councilors, church officials and citizens, he tried
to block the neo-Nazis from gathering at the grave.

‘INCITEMENT TO HATRED’

The German parliament passed an amendment in 2005 to the existing legislation on incitement to hatred, specifically to prevent such gatherings. Otto Schily, Germany's interior minister at the time, said it was done "in solidarity with the democratic public of Wunsiedel".

However, this failed to solve the problem and the neo-Nazis kept coming. "The Hess marches may have been forbidden but groups like
the far-right National Democratic party could still hold demonstrations on other issues," Seisser told the Guardian.

He hopes the removal of the remains will put an end to the annual invasion. "At least the pilgrimage site for the radical right has been removed," he said. "The grave no longer exists."

* Actually, he was murdered by a special British MI5 team, with the collusion
of the Americans and French, to prevent him from revealing details of his peace mission.

Rudolf Hess's remains taken from grave in dead of night, cremated and scattered after it became neo-Nazi pilgrimage site

  • Last surviving member of Hitler's cabinet and last inmate of Spandau died in 1987 aged 93
  • Deputy Fuhrer was early confidant but was captured in Scotland in 1941 on failed mission to negotiate peace

The remains of Adolf Hitler’s deputy, Rudolf Hess, have been secretly removed from their grave after it became a pilgrimage site for neo-Nazis.

Workers exhumed Hess’s bones from the grave in the small Bavarian town of Wunsiedel yesterday in the middle of the night.

They then cremated the remains and scattered them secretly in a lake, whose name and location are not being revealed.

'The grave is now empty,' said cemetery administrator Andreas Fabel. 'The bones are gone.'

Deputy Fuhrer Hess was captured in 1941 when he parachuted into Scotland - breaking his ankle in the process - on a mission to negotiate peace between Britain and Germany.

The attempt was denounced by Hitler, and Hess later told British authorities that the Nazi leader knew nothing of it.

He was later convicted at the Nuremberg trials after the Second World War, and died in 1987.

In recent years, Hess has come to be seen as a martyr by the far-Right.

Thousands of neo-Nazis have used the anniversary of his death on August 17 as an occasion to hold large rallies, with Wunsiedel - near the Czech border -often a focal point.

'I REGRET NOTHING': THE LIFE OF RUDOLF HESS

Born to a wealthy Bavarian family, Hess spent his first 14 years in Egypt before going to Germany to finish his education and begin a career as a merchant.

At the outbreak of the First World War, Hess enlisted in the German infantry. He was wounded on several occasions and was awarded the Iron Cross, second class, for his exploits.

Hess first heard Adolf Hitler speak at a Munich rally in 1920. He became devoted to Hitler and joined the fledgling Nazi Party as one of its first members.

After Hitler assumed dictatorial powers in early 1933, Hess was named 'Deputy to the Fuhrer'. On 1 September 1939, the day Germany invaded Poland, Hitler announced that should anything happen to both him and Hermann Göring, Hess would be next in the line of succession.

Like Goebbels, Hess was privately distressed by the war with Britain because he had hoped it would accept Germany as an ally.

On May 10, 1941, Hess took off from Augsburg in a Messerschmitt Bf 110. After reaching the west coast of England he turned east before climbing and parachuting over Renfrewshire and he landed at Floors Farm near Eaglesham.

Winston Churchill initially sent Hess to the Tower of London, making him the last prisoner to be held in the 900-year-old fortress. Hess was detained by the British for the remainder of the war.

After the end of the war, Hess was tried at Nuremberg alongside other Nazi leaders. He was sentenced to life in prison for crimes against peace but told the tribunal, 'I regret nothing.'

Following the release in 1966 of Baldur von Schirach and Albert Speer, Hess was the sole remaining inmate of Spandau Prison, partly at the insistence of the Soviets.

On 17 August 1987, Hess died at the age of 93. He was found in a summer house in a garden located in a secure area of the prison with an electrical cord wrapped around his neck.

His death was controversially ruled a suicide by asphyxiation. Spandau Prison was subsequently demolished to prevent it from becoming a shrine.

Hess was the last surviving member of Hitler's cabinet.

Such rallies have been banned since stricter laws were implemented in 2005, but the grave continued to attract far-Right extremists to the town.

German newspaper Suddeutsche Zeitung said the descendants of Hess were initially against the idea of exhuming his body.

A granddaughter of Hess even filed a law suit to prevent it.

But the family eventually caved in to pressure from the local authorities and agreed to have his remains taken away.

However, according to Fabel, with the lease on the burial plot coming up for renewal in October, Hess’s relatives and Lutheran church authorities in the town decided it was best to remove the remains.

'Both sides were in favour of it,' he added.

Hess was an early confidant of Hitler, and, while Hitler was imprisoned in the 1920s, the Nazi leader dictated much of his infamous manifesto Mein Kampf, or My Struggle, to him.

Hess eventually rose to the position of deputy Nazi party leader, but by 1941 his influence with Hitler was waning.

His flight to Scotland is widely seen by historians as an attempt to restore his importance.

Instead, Hitler said he was delusional and the British treated him as a prisoner of war.

The Fuhrer then sacked Hess and ordered him to be shot if he ever returned to Germany.

He appointed Martin Boorman as his new deputy.

At the Nuremberg trials after the war, Hess was found innocent of war crimes and crimes against humanity, but sentenced to life imprisonment for crimes against peace and conspiracy to commit crimes against peace.

Hess was the last inmate at Spandau Prison in then-West Berlin when he died on August 17, 1987 at the age of 93.

Allied authorities said he hanged himself with an electrical cord.

The prison was demolished shortly afterwards and the rubble secretly disposed of.

Hess was buried in his family plot in Wunsiedel, at his request.

Many far-Right groups say Hess did not commit suicide but was killed by British military guards in prison, and conspiracy theories about the Nazi, who was interested in the occult, abound.
