OF THE JULY 20, 1944 ANTI-NAZI COUP :
STAUFFENBERG AND TRESCKOW WERE OURS !
"Nationalism of liberation and anti-Fascism cannot nor should not be opposite"
20, 1944, colonel Von Stauffenberg had tried to kill the Führer. Five people
were killed in the attack, Hitler escaped from it and the conspirators were
executed. They had tried to topple the “fascist regime” by a Coup
d’Etat, failed in Berlin, but succeeded
– in vain – in Paris and Vienna.
then, “20 July 1944” is the purpose of an ashamed revisionism in the Federal German Republic. After having a time
qualified the conspirators of “traitors”, one honours them officially, but
by disguising or concealing their anti-liberal and anti-Western
ideology. One keeps going confusions on the “Stauffenberg/Tresckow
group” and its national-revolutionary ideology.
group was in the Prussian
tradition of state socialism and Russian friendship. The
“national-conservative” marshals and generals gave up the putsch on July 20,
after having made it fail by starting Walkyrie 3 hours too late in Berlin (the
putsch was successful in Vienna and Paris, the SS imprisoned !). The
Anglo-Saxons wanted in 1944 the destruction of Germany and proclaimed it. Stalin

Freies Deutschland”, founded in 1942, and of which several organizers were
close to the Stauffenberg group. Their action of antifascist resistance had as
background the “orientation to the East”, typical of the national-Bolshevik
and national-revolutionary circles.
adversaries of Hitler in the body of the officers, followed in September 1943,
when the “UNION OF THE GERMAN OFFICERS” was founded. Then, marshal
PAULUS, the defeated man of Stalingrad, several generous Generals and officers
joined the National Committee.
found there old adversaries of HITLER,
like Ottomar PECH, future general of the NVA, who belonged to the Berliner
network of the “RED ORCHESTRA”, directed by the national-Bolsheviks ARNACK
and Schulze-Boysen. Or General Otto KORFES, member of the national-revolutionary
group of STAUFFENBERG (his brother-in-law was executed for having taken part in
the heroic uprising of July 20, 1944).
propaganda actions of the “National Committee”, with its million leaflets,
newspapers and the daily appeals of Radio Moscow “to the German people and the
German Wehrmacht”, contributed to the disintegration of the Nazi machine of
the “National Committee” will come out the revival of the KPD in Eastern
Germany and, in front of the failure of STALIN’s plans, who is germanophile,
one is unaware of it too often, aiming at a democratic, neutral and socialist
unified Germany, the birth of GDR.
SS called the Stauffenberg group “Schwarze Kapelle” for their
proximity with “Rotte Kapelle”, the great resistance network of the
National-Bolsheviks Schulze-Boysen and Arnack.
propaganda of the FRG, mentioned in our media liars occults all that.
Particularly films and reports broadcasted at the time of this 60th anniversary
of “July 20, 1944” by ARD, ZDF or ARTE.
cannot speak about Stauffenberg without inevitably leading to the “Circle
of Kreissau”, from the name of this small village of Silesia where certain
numbers of militants from the “CONSERVATIVE REVOLUTION”, of whom the count
Helmuth James VON MOLKTE, one of the great names of the Prussian State, and the
brothers VON STAUFFENBERG and many others, led an anti-nazi resistance network
which prepared and carried out the attack of July 20, 1944 and the abortive
anti-hitlerian putsch which followed it. Among the members of the “CIRCLE OF
KREISSAU”, great names of anti-Nazi resistance who sacrificed their lives in
the fight against hitlerism, such as count YORK VON WARTENBURG, executed on
August 8, 1944 or ambassador VON HASSEL.
the circle of Kreissau, these men from the “conservative Revolution” and close
to the national-revolutionary circles, had offered former social democrat
leaders, trade unionists, members of the KPD a helping hand.
besides, the proclamations of the authors of the July 20, 1944 Coup d’Etat do
not leave any doubt about their adherence to the “nationalism of liberation”
which the national-revolutionary circles proposed.
us come to colonel Klaus Von STAUFFENBERG and his brother Berthold, both
executed after July 20, 1944. SANDOZ also locates without ambiguity the
membership of the count of STAUFFENBERG in the national-revolutionary circles.
Speaking about Ernst JÜNGER, the head of the German NR of the 20-30ies,
he says that it was a “man also very appreciated by Von STAUFFENBERG”.
speaks in connection with STAUFFENBERG about the ideas about “revolution”,
“nation”, and “socialism” as the “incarnation of his
hopes” and he adds that “the leader of the conspiracy was, in his
manner, a "revolutionary””. His brother, Berthold, he, will
say to the Gestapo : “Put into practice by the regime, the essential ideas
of National-socialism were transformed into their opposite. People of modest
means who exerted a power without control replaced at the top the predestined
One understands better why official historiography passed over in silence this aspect of the conspiracy of July 20, 1944.
West German society, the reserves, even the hostility, to the anti-nazi
resistance members seem to endure a long time.
In parallel took shape an opposite movement of takeover in the German
conservative high society, and in the military circles of Bundeswehr and
NATO (where one carries IIIrd Reich Nazi decorations), of which some tend
to adapt the heroism of the officers of July 20 to erase the
memory of their rallying with Hitler at the time of his coming to power in 1933.
It is also a means of minimizing the role of the left-wing resistance,
since 1933, the Communist, social democrat and trade unionist militants being
the first to get to know the concentration camps, the role of clerics, students
as the Munich group of the white Rose or that of isolated individuals. The
national-Bolsheviks and the national-revolutionaries - whom Tresckow and
Stauffenberg belonged to, purely
and simply passed to the trap door of the West German revisionism.
today, and even if they do not pass any more for traitors, the merit from the
some 200 conspirators of July 20, for the majority executed by the Nazis, does
not achieve the unanimity : “can one be proud of these men?” dares
still question the STERN magazine !
the GDR, the treatment of the antinazi Resistance heroes was very different. The
will of the GDR, the “socialist nation” (which was also the
name of the national-Bolshevik group of PAETEL, decimated by the Nazis for facts
of resistance in 1933-34) as the SED defines it, was to base its identity on
historical roots. Those are the Lutheran past, the popular traditions of the
wars of the peasants of the Middle Ages and the war of liberation of 1812-1813
against NAPOLEON, but also antifascism, true ideological base of the GDR,
and, slowly but surely, the past of Prussia, this other ideological
was incontestably more legitimate than the takeover of STAUFFENBERG by
the liberal republic of Bonn, whereas the colonel, disciple of the
national-revolutionary ideas, vomitted
liberalism and was in favour of an agreement with the USSR.
East Germany, in the old GDR, as we saw, German Resistance on the contrary was
exalted for ideological reasons quite as obvious, antifascism being one of the
pillars of the national-Communist regime of Berlin.
one was unaware of and even sometimes that one taxed with treason in the FRG the
national-Bolshevik militants of the “Red Orchestra”, those were praised to
the skies in East Germany. The same applied to the many resistance fighters of
the disappearance of the GDR, one quasi officially attended an attempt of the
German bourgeois regime to make disappear this aspect from Resistance. In East
Germany, since the reunification, the monuments, the museums, the memory even of
antifascist Resistance were destroyed, cunningly systematically eliminated.
role of the German National-revolutionaries and National-Bolsheviks, who were
as of 1932 the first to resist against Hitlerism and who were the driving
force in the most serious and most effective attempts in the fight against the
IIIrd Reich, was most of the time passed over in silence. There too the
ideological reasons prevail.
most spectacular aspect of German Resistance under the IIIrd Reich was the
durable organization of resistance networks which carried frightening blows
to the hitlerian beast. It is symptomatic that one finds at the head of these
networks, National-revolutionaries or National-Bolsheviks who sometimes carried
out until the end of the war their struggle inside even the military, economic
and administrative structures of Nazism. In the foreground of these networks
appears the Ernst NIEKISCH’s “WIDERSTAND Organization” between 1933
and 1937, which the Germans call “HARNACK - Schulze-Boysen Organization”,
i.e. the German branch of the network known under the name of “Red
Orchestra”, the “Treskow-Stauffenberg group” of the
conspirators of July 20, 1944, whose action begins, one is unaware of it
generally, from 1937, and finally, the most ignored of all, the “HIELSCHER
group”, which from 1933 to 1945 undertook a tireless sap against
National-socialism inside even of its bodies of management.
Resistance does not have anything to envy the other European groups of
resistance. It does not have demerity, far from it, because its members risked
even more than many in other European countries. Whereas “some” would like
to be unaware of their sacrifice, we, their ideological heirs, we have the duty
to keep their memory vis-a-vis the assassins of the memory ! It is this anti-hitlerian
heritage which our Party, the PCN, which today embodies alone legitimately
the national-Bolshevik and national-revolutionary heritage and tradition,
assumes in its fight against the neo-Nazi and neo-liberal far right, that we
call the “blue-brown far right”. Our political current does not have any
lesson to receive from anybody. And today, like its predecessors of yesterday,
in the fight against the disgusting beast, it is in the first line and most
German national-Bolsheviks and national-revolutionaries of the Twenties and
Thirties paid the price of blood. They fought, they fought for their ideas,
their dignity, the freedom and the independence of their Nation, for the
socialist values in which they believed and which we share. Their fight is today
indissociable of ours.
Whereas all lay down, they refused to abdicate.
They stood up, fought and fell upright and free.
Faced with people on their knees, they embodied alone the honour of their Nation.
We have not forgotten! We have not forgiven ! The fight continues !
