Martin Luther's 28th Theses: It is certain that when money clinks in the money chest,
greed and avarice can be increased;
but when the church intercedes,
the result is in the hands of God alone.
“.........It is clear that the clerical [politicians] in 1943 didn't go to Rome
in order to wait in the Forum
or in the proximity
of the blessed presence of the pope
the German victory,
they went to Rome in order to be near the British [authorities].......”

"........Erich Priebke (born July 29, 1913) is a former Hauptsturmführer (Captain) in the Waffen SS. In 1996 he was convicted of war crimes in Italy, for participating in the massacre at the Ardeatine caves in Rome, on March 24, 1944. 335 Italian civilians were killed there in retaliation after a partisan attack had claimed the lives of 33 German soldiers (an SS military police battalion from South Tyrol). Priebke was one of those who was held responsible for this mass execution. After the defeat of Nazi Germany, he got help to flee to Argentina where he lived for over 50 years.
In post-World War II trials, Priebke had been set to be tried for his role in the massacre, but he managed to escape from a British prison camp in northeastern Italy in 1946. After he had escaped, he lived with a family in Sterzing/Vipiteno. During this time he received on 13 September 1948 a second baptism by a local priest. After his time in South Tyrol he went to Vatican City in Rome to find protection. Bishop Alois Hudal, a main participant in the Vatican's Ratlines, was accustomed to making false travel documents for German officials who had been involved in the war, and he supplied Priebke with a falsified visa to travel to Argentina (then led by Juan Perón). Though alleged to have been responsible for war crimes, Priebke lived in Argentina as a free man for 50 years.
Priebke told Donaldson that the victims - from 14 year old boys to 75 year old men - were, in his view at the time, terrorists. He admitted that it was he who compiled the lists of those who were going to be executed.
In March 1995, after nine months of delays, the president of the Jewish organization B'nai B'rith was promised, by among others, the Argentine president Carlos Menem, that the case would soon be closed, and that Priebke was to be transferred to Italy by the end of the month. In spite of these promises, the Supreme Court of Argentina decided that the case was to be transferred to the local court in Bariloche where the case was originally brought up. This opened the possibility for years of delays from future appeals, while Priebke could live at his home.....
In court, Priebke declared himself not guilty. He did not deny what he had done, but he denied any responsibility. He blamed the massacre on whom he branded as "the Italian terrorists" who were behind the attack in which 33 young German soldiers were killed. The order came directly from Hitler, and he thought it was a legitimate punishment.
During the trial it became clear that Priebke had personally shot two Italians. This was also in his testimony from 1946 before he managed to escape..........."

"......Lučka Kralj Jerman is born in Gorica/Gorizia on 4th June 1934 in the family of the politician doc Janko Kralj and Anica Simčič . At those times his father was doc Janko Kralj, the leader of numerous clandestine Christian social organizations in the daily life and under the Fascist oppression. After the death of the father she went back in Gorica/Gorizia. There Lučka Kralj frequented the local Slovenian gymnasium and continued the studies in the musical school. In the year 1948 she, with the mother, the sister and the younger brother, emigrated in Argentina, in Buenos Aires. At the end of year 1954 she married Franceta Jerman. In the family there were born five children, three boys and two girls, who grew in the city of Patagonia Bariloche, near a see under the Ande mountains. The sudden death of the father surprised the family in 1980.....”
"........The modern settlement of Bariloche developed from a shop established by Carlos Wiederhold, a German immigrant that had settled in the area of Lake Llanquihue in Chile. Carlos Weiderhold then crossed the Andes and established a little shop called "La Alemana" (The German) near the present city center.A small settlement developed around the shop, and by 1895 the settlement was primarily settled by Austrians, Germans, Slovenians, Chileans and Italians from the city of Belluno. It has been claimed that Bariloche got its name after the German-Chilean pioneer Carlos Wiederhold.......
Nazis in Bariloche
Bariloche made headlines in the international press in 1995 when it became known as a haven for Nazi war criminals such as the former SS Hauptsturmführer Erich Priebke. Priebke had been the director of the German School of Bariloche for many years.
In his 2004 book Bariloche nazi-guía turística, Argentine author Abel Basti claims that Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun lived in the surroundings of Bariloche for many years after World War II. The estate of Inalco has been pointed out by Abel Basti as the place that Argentine Nazis chose as Hitler's refuge.
A book published by British authors[who?] in 2011 proposed that Hitler and Eva Braun hid at Hacienda San Ramon, six miles east of Bariloche, until the early 1960s. This account is disputed by other historians...................".

Nazis' Argentine village hide-out pulls in tourists
12:01AM GMT 14 Feb 2004
The bookshops of Bariloche, an Alpine-style town on the edge of the Argentine Andes, are running out of copies of their new bestseller - a guide to the homes of senior Nazis who found refuge there after the Second World War.
The author and publisher of Nazi Bariloche, Abel Basti, said: "It is a serious investigation, presented in non-traditional format, which seeks to demonstrate that Bariloche was a Nazi stronghold."
His evidence is compelling. A small yellow-brick building in the town centre houses a delicatessen once owned by an SS captain, Erich Priebke."He was an excellent neighbour who always behaved like a gentleman," said the 79-year-old.
Priebke is serving a life sentence in Italy for his role in the massacre of 335 Italians, including 75 Jews, but his former neighbour Cecilia Maahs vividly remembers "the sorrowful day" a decade ago when he was arrested.
She was "always fully aware" of the former Nazi's past "because he never felt the need to hide it here", she said. "It never bothered me in the slightest."
Across the road from Priebke's delicatessen is the Club Andino Bariloche, a mountaineering association set up in 1931 by Otto Meiling, the father of Argentine winter sports and a former member of the Hitler Youth. Its membership lists from the late 1940s include Hans Ulrich Rudel, former head of the Luftwaffe and a close confidant of Hitler, and Frederich Lantschner, the former Nazi governor of the Tyrol.
Hugo Jung, the club president, remembers Rudel well: "I know he was a Nazi, but it doesn't bother me at all. He was a great man and despite the fact that he had only one leg, he still managed to be an excellent skier."
Two blocks further up the hillside is the timber-built house where Priebke lived for 50 years.
His son 63-year-old George, still lives there. "We were always very well accepted here," he said. "I went to a local school and, despite the fact that everyone knew who my father was, I never had any problems.
"The culture here is different. In Italy people call us assassins and scream at us. Here they greet us and shake our hands."
Other sites of interest listed in the guide include Otto Meiling's isolated mountain cabin, preserved as a museum open to the public; the home for many years of Joseph Schwammberger, commander of the Polish ghetto Przemysl (*); and Primo Capraro (**), the local German school. Erich Priebke was its president at the time of his arrest and it once proudly flew a swastika flag outside its entrance.
At the town hall in the city centre, Josef Mengele, the Auschwitz death camp doctor who was known as the "Angel of Death", took his driving test twice in the 1940s, having failed the first time.
Now retired, Francisco Calo, who ran the tests, said: "There were always rumours that Mengele was here, but when I saw his face I was certain it was him."
It is no secret that many Nazis fled to Argentina following the Allied victory in 1945. Argentina's then president, Juan Peron, explained: "When the war was over some useful Germans helped us build our factories and make the best use of what we had and in time they were able to help themselves too."
For decades most of them lived on undisturbed in the country, and the local population still refuses to condemn them for their actions.
A federal police sergeant in Bariloche said: "We have never received a single complaint, charge or denunciation from the civilian population against any of the Nazis." Sergio Perez, a taxi driver, simply did not want to know the truth: "For our community they were great people who did everything they could for us," he said.
"We felt impotence when Priebke was arrested because we could not help this man who was like a father to us." At the time of the arrest the pupils of Primo Capraro took to the streets to protest on his behalf.
Mr Basti, whose book has prompted a Buenos Aires travel agency to set up tours of the sites he highlights, said he had been "inundated with angry e-mails asking how I can attack these great men".
He added: "There remains a strong neo-Nazi sympathy in Bariloche today."
Jewish targets were bombed twice in Buenos Aires during the 1990s - first the Israeli embassy and then a Jewish community centre, an attack which left 85 people dead. Daniel Reisfeld, the vice-president of the 150-strong Jewish community in Bariloche, lost a sister in the second bombing and in the same year, after Priebke's arrest, became acutely aware of the pro-Nazi sentiment in his home town.
He received several threatening phone calls saying a bomb had been placed in his house or his shop. "I was inundated by phone calls asking why this was happening to poor old Priebke," he said.
"There is still a lot of ignorance and, without doubt, anti-Semitism in Argentina.
"Nobody wanted to notice the Nazis here and that is why Priebke freely admitted his past without fear of repercussions. "It might be comical if it were not so tragic."
And no one want to hear about that in today's Slovenia.
