    Thanks for posting. Unfortunately the Jews were always blamed for bad news at least all over Europe and for many centuries. Stefan.

    Stefan I think from this quote
    Many of the German people were realising that the war was not always going their way and once the Allies began heavy bombing of Germany I assume many realised this was a regime that would not succeed

    There have been many discussions in recent years about Germans who had badly suffered from the bomb war.
    I still remember very well a lively audience discussion about this some years ago. Until a very old lady asked the main speaker: "If you had the choice: A night in Hamburg in a hail of bombs or a beautiful summer's day as a prisoner in a KZ: which would you rather be?"
    "Surprisingly" >cough<, the discussion was over after that

    I think by this point the German citizens were first shaken into reality and a wide spread but discreet joke regarding Goring's public quip "“If planes drop bombs on Germany, you can call me Meyer" was doing the rounds.

    In these very sad days and among my WW2 history friends, I sometimes refer to him as Hermann Meyer.

    I took these at a recent visit to Hendon Museum this year. What a Great Shame that the Fat Herman Meyer wasn't a victim of his own words :mad:
