The Holocaust Diary
My name is Friedrich Krebs. I am a 29-year-old free-lance journalist. I write about all things happening in Germany, and then sell them to newspapers and magazines all over the world. I am the only son of a World War 1 hero, and my mother who idolizes me. I am divorced with one son who resides with his mother. I’m young, blonde, blue-eyed, strong, and pure German. I’m what you would consider Hitler ideal German to be.
Rather than believing in the Weimar republic, I believe in democracy. I consider the Weimar republic to be week and helpless. I do not like what these groups of thugs who call themselves “Nazis” are trying to do. I mean they are trying to blame the war on the Jews, communists, and the liberals. Saying how Hitler will bring the Germans back to their farmer greatness. My own father agrees with the Nazis, he is already eager to rid the country of foreigners and especially Jews. But he doesn’t know that I have a Jewish girlfriend, named Anna. Also my wife is raising our son to become one of these criminals. He is only five and already belongs to some Nazi youth organization. I will do whatever it takes to make sure that these people don’t do anymore damage to our country.
On this day people who choose to take this oath have chosen to give in and not go for what they believe in but what he believes in. I on the other hand will not give in and choose not to take the oath and make a stand for what I believe in. I will try and contribte to working to defeat Hitler as much as I can. Since I am a journalist I can write about all the bad things happening to our country. After writing about these events I will sell them to newspapers and magazines all over the world, so they would know how much of a threat Hitler is not only to the people of Germany but also to the world.
Today is the day of the book burning kids running around yelling like the burning of the books doesn’t even bother them, they don’t know how much books would help them because their young children doing what they thought was right. The Nazis and police are knocking on people’s doors and confiscating their books, I know a lot of people who don’t agree with this but don’t want to put the lives of their family in danger. Me being a journalist I do not agree with this one bit not having books would change how we think so we wont have our own opinions, we would all have the same thoughts because we are only allowed to read similar books. I will have to go to this book burning later this evening and I will have a decision to make whether I want to participate in this and throw a book into the fire or try and stop them from throwing the books, so as I have returned you know I have made the decision to join in on the burning. A little boy came up to me and tried to put a book in my hand, as I refused a soldier walks up and stands right behind the boy staring at me and says, if you have trust in what Hitler is doing you will take the book and throw it in. I did not want to get arrested and loose the chance of spreading the word to the world about what’s happening here so I took the book and tossed it. It was a very hard thing to do but I did it for the sake of my country.
I am here in Berlin for the Olympic games to support my country of course. I walk into the stadium. There are so many people but not just Germans other nationalities are here to cheer on their country. I feel as if everywhere like they were watching my every move. I also notice some American reporters were also there, maybe this is my chance to get out to the world about what was happening here. The people here would know nothing about what’s going on here because Hitler had all the propaganda posters taken down and the cities cleared of anything that would alert the people from other...
