On May 13, 1942 eleven Jewish communists belonging to the Herbert Baum terror group — and the Werner Steinbrinck group (also called “Franka Group”) — carried out a cowardly arson attack on the exhibition “The Soviet Paradise” at Berlin’s Lustgarten. Five German civilians were killed in the fire.
During Operation Barbarossa, the German military was absolutely shocked when they saw first-hand the actual living conditions of the average worker in Soviet-Communist Russia — the “worker’s paradise” promised by the Judeo-Bolsheviks turned out to be a living nightmare.
A decision was made to bring back some of the real-world evidence of the misery and devastation of life under Jewish-Bolshevism — to show to the German people what they were fighting against. This material proof became the basis for a public exhibit ironically called “The Soviet Paradise”.
Communist Jews in Germany, of course, were offended by the exhibit — and hatched a juvenile plan to disrupt the exhibit with homemade explosives and incendiary devices. Very little of the exhibit was damaged during their craven terror attack, but five innocent Germans were killed. The Jewish terror group that masterminded the attack — along with other Jews tangentially involved with their underground resistance movement were swiftly arrested and executed.
According to a German brochure describing the purpose of the exhibit,
The exhibition’s organizers often had the feeling that their portrayal of conditions in the Soviet Union was far from accurate. This feeling has since been confirmed — but in an entirely different manner than expected. Everything that had been said about Bolshevism before the outbreak of the war with the Soviet Union has been thrown into the shadows by reality. Words and pictures are not enough to make the tragedy of Bolshevist reality believable to Europeans. This agrees with what our soldiers repeatedly say. It is impossible to portray conditions in the Soviet Union without oneself having seen and experienced them.
The idea therefore was to provide German citizens with an exhibition based on everyday life under Bolshevism in order to show them the misery of life there. A number of expeditions to areas held by our troops were made to gather the necessary original material for the exhibition.
Millions of visitors have received an accurate picture of the misery of life under Bolshevism through the numerous original items. Experts, above all our soldiers, still agree that even this exhibition does not give a full picture of the misery and hopelessness of the lives of farmers and workers in the “Soviet Paradise.”

And for a sympathetic account of this Jewish act of terror, read the excerpt below. And notice how this account conveniently leaves out the crucial detail that five innocent German civilians were murdered in the terror attack.
[Excerpted from the chapter, “Herbert Baum Groups: Networks Of Jewish, Leftist, and Youth Resistance in the Third Reich,” from the book The Human Tradition in Modern Europe: 1750 to the Present (2009) by John Cox]:
On 8 May 1942, Soviet Paradise, an exhibition staged by Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels depicting the poverty and degradation of Russia under its supposed “Jewish-Bolshevik” regime, opened with great fanfare in the Lustgarten square in Berlin. One newspaper optimistically predicted that it would be “the most successful political exhibition yet…. Several million people shall visit.”
However, not everyone was quite as enthusiastic. At approximately eight o’clock on the evening of 18 May, several explosives ignited around the periphery of “Soviet Paradise”. Although fire trucks responded quickly, a portion of the installation burned that evening. The German press was predictably silent, but news of the attack spread by word of mouth, and the dictatorship suffered a rare embarrassment. Had Goebbels and his immediate superior, Adolf Hitler, known the identity of the saboteurs at the time, they would undoubtedly have been even more enraged: this bold action was perpetrated by young Jews — moreover, they were German Jews who belonged to leftist organizations.
The Gestapo was too efficient and methodical to allow such an act to go unpunished. Within days, the police had rounded up, tortured, and sentenced to death most of the members of two underground groups led by Herbert Baum, who had organized the attack. While the spectacular assault on “Soviet Paradise” increased the outside world’s knowledge of the internal leftist opposition, the Baum groups had already earned a reputation within the German underground resistance.
Herbert Baum had begun building his network of dissident groups and circles in the first days of the dictatorship, and it would become the largest organization of German-Jewish resisters. The story of the Baum groups is also significant because it is only one example of a broader history of anti-Nazi activism among young Jews living under Hitler’s reign of terror….
“Words and pictures are not enough to make the tragedy of Bolshevist reality believable to Europeans,” began the exhibition’s accompanying pamphlet, so Goebbels’s team assembled a collection of dilapidated shacks and other ramshackle buildings to illustrate the “misery and hopelessness of the lives of the farmers and workers.” Rita Zocher, a friend of Herbert Baum’s since childhood, recalled that “Soviet Paradise” was replete with “a great big pile of dung . . . old apartments, old farmers’ huts,” depicting a society in which “nothing [was] newly built” and “the people were all robbers and criminals.”
The catalog accompanying “Soviet Paradise” was explicit in its anti-Semitism and in its identification of Judaism with bolshevism.
Werner Steinbrinck had been working as a lab technician for about two years at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute in Berlin. He was able to purloin a kilogram of explosive black powder, as well as a flammable solution, carbon disulfide.
He also went to a library, by coincidence only a couple of hundred meters west of the Lustgarten, and borrowed a book on fireworks. On Sunday, 17 May, Steinbrinck brought the materials he had procured from his workplace to Joachim Franke’s apartment, and the two worked for several hours constructing a few rudimentary explosive devices, while Franke’s wife Erika attended to the couple’s eight-year-old son.
Beginning at seven o’clock the next evening, eleven members of the Baum and Franke groups made their way to “Soviet Paradise” in groups of one or two. Marianne Baum and Hilde Jadamowitz arrived first, mingling with a crowd that grew to number approximately two thousand visitors. Steinbrinck made his way to the Lustgarten and handed Baum one of the explosive devices. Franke was to deposit another one in a cupboard in the so-called Speisehaus, or meal room, of the ersatz Soviet village. The conspirators were compelled to look for another location, however, upon finding that the Speisehaus was closed that day.
Steinbrinck joined Franke, and they threw one of the explosives into a shack that was part of the exhibit, and then fled the scene when another device, held by Steinbrinck in a briefcase, began to emit smoke. They tossed it into a sewer drain a few blocks away. When Herbert Baum’s small firebomb also malfunctioned and began incinerating the bag that contained it, Baum fled the exhibit, as did the other members at about the same time, approximately an hour and a half after most of them had arrived.
Despite these difficulties, Baum and his compatriots had succeeded in placing one firebomb, which burned the shack and a small part of the exhibit before firefighters arrived and a large police contingent cordoned off the area. Although the Baum and Steinbrinck-Franke groups had damaged a minor part of “Soviet Paradise,” the exhibit opened as usual the next day.
The German press dutifully neglected to report the incident, but the Gestapo set to work immediately, forming a special investigating committee. Heinrich Himmler, in his capacity as chief of the Gestapo and of all the German police, received a telex that afternoon informing him of the “sabotage attack on the anti-Bolshevik exhibition, the ‘Soviet Paradise.’”
Steinbrinck had planned to meet Baum five days later, on Saturday, 23 May, but that meeting never took place. At noon on 22 May, Herbert and Marianne Baum, Gerhard Meyer, and Heinz Rotholz were arrested at their workplace, the Elmo-Werke. Joachim Franke, Werner Steinbrinck, and all the members of their group were arrested the same day. Another four dozen people — some of whom were only tangentially linked to the Baum groups were arrested in June and July.
The courage and spirit of defiance of many of the young resisters is evident from the transcripts. Heinz Rotholz stated, “I wish to add that I knew about the preparations of the sabotage action against the ‘Soviet Paradise.’ Had the comrades not excluded me from the act because of my Jewish appearance, I would have gone on Monday to the exhibit and taken part in the act.”
Lotte Rotholz told her inquisitors, “One must utilize every opportunity to fight against the present regime. . . . But one thing was clear to me: as a Jew I must not lag behind….my ties were and remain with Baum.”
Herbert Budzislawski stated that he was compelled as a Jew to fight “injustice in Germany”— the only way, as he saw it, to find a way to “live in Germany as a human being.”
The police dragged Baum back into the Elmo-Werke plant, hoping that he might reveal some of his collaborators or that some of this friends would inadvertently expose themselves when they saw their badly beaten comrade. This effort failed.
On 11 June the Gestapo informed the state prosecutor that Herbert Baum had been declared a suicide, although it is likely that he had been tortured to death in the three weeks after his arrest — in either case, a victim of state terror.
The Gestapo kept no interrogation records on the case, and simply noted, without providing a coroner’s report or other evidence, that Baum had “hanged himself”.
At least three other members of Baum’s groups died in police custody, either murdered or by their own hand. All told, thirty-two members and supporters of Baum’s groups were executed or otherwise murdered by the German authorities over the next year and a half. Sixteen of those executed were no more than twenty-three years old. Most were charged with “high treason” and tried before the Nazis’ “special courts,” which prosecuted political crimes.
Remember this, Communism is Judaism – look it up!
THE JEWISH PLAN TO MURDER SIX MILLION EUROPEANS.
Abba Kovner (1918–1987) was a Jewish terrorist leader, mass murderer, poet and writer. Kovner was born in the Crimean Black Sea port city of Sevastopol but soon moved with his family to Vilnius, Lithuania where he joined and became an active member in the Marxist–Zionist youth movement Hashomer Hatzair. In June 1941 Germany troops liberated the city, which had been seized by Bolshevism during the 1920’s. Kovner assembled a Jewish terrorist force known as the United Partisan Organization in the forests near Vilnius and engaged in sabotage and terrorist attacks against German troops.
“When Hitler Declared War on the United States”
“We realized very clearly that under no circumstances could we allow the enemy the opportunity to strike first into our heart. Nevertheless, in this case the decision [to attack Soviet Russia] was a very difficult one. When the writers for the democratic newspapers now declare that I would have thought twice before attacking if I had known the strength of the Bolshevik adversaries, they show that they do not understand either the situation or me.
I have not sought war. To the contrary, I have done everything to avoid conflict. But I would forget my duty and my conscience if I were to do nothing in spite of the realization that a conflict had become unavoidable. Because I regarded Soviet Russia as the gravest danger not only for the German Reich but for all of Europe, I decided, if possible, to give the order myself to attack a few days before the outbreak of this conflict.
A truly impressive amount of authentic material is now available which confirms that a Soviet Russian attack was intended. We are also sure about when this attack was to take place. In view of this danger, the extent of which we are perhaps only now truly aware, I can only thank the Lord God that He enlightened me in time, and has given me the strength to do what must be done. Millions of German soldiers may thank Him for their lives, and all of Europe for its existence.
Two different paths in life! Franklin Roosevelt took power in the United States as the candidate of a thoroughly capitalistic party, which helps those who serve it. When I became the Chancellor of the German Reich, I was the leader of a popular national movement, which I had created myself. The powers that supported Mr. Roosevelt were the same powers I fought against, out of concern for the fate of my people, and out of deepest inner conviction. The “brain trust” that served the new American president was made up of members of the same national group that we fought against in Germany as a parasitical expression of humanity, and which we began to remove from public life.
And yet, we also had something in common: Franklin Roosevelt took control of a country with an economy that had been ruined as a result of democratic influences, and I assumed the leadership of a Reich that was also on the edge of complete ruin, thanks to democracy….”.
Interesting expose’ of the cruelty of jews who were not in Versammlunglager (concentration camp). Assuming some of these nice jews were Mischling, this helps explain the sabotage in the army , especially eastern front at critical time. And of the mutual distrust throughout the war.
Many “Mischling “, 150,000 were in the Wehrmacht, mostly navy but also army until the time that their presence no longer could be tolerated . Also, too late.
If there is one weakness National Socialist revealed it was discrimination and trust of their own (race principles) for Germans, usually aristocracy, who were victims of miscegenation, “Rassenscande”. And those who were communist (Frankfurt Schule) such as Sorge among others.
The Germans never realized the profound dedication “conversion” to an alien, amoral ideology . Perhaps this is from their cynical dismissal or mis-perception of their own Christian culture, which they could not discern as “German” and believed could be compromised, another victim of Roman Catholicism and Zionism.
Germany never recovered from the jewish Weimar liberalism. Do optimistic Americans presume they will survive the present jew ideologies ?
Yes, contrary to the claims of the exterminationist conspiracy theorists, there were tens of thousands of Jews living openly in Berlin at the end of World War II. Clearly, if the “Nazis” were hell-bent on rounding up every Jew and gassing them, these Jews would have been the first, and easiest, to locate. But, no, they were free to walk about Berlin and drop bombs at a public event….
Fantastic article and links from CFT team.
1. The book excerpt quoted here says “SUPPOSED” of the German exhibition of Soviet misery being characterized as jewish: “depicting the poverty and degradation of Russia under its supposed Jewish-Bolshevik regime”, then goes on to detail how it was jewish group that took umbrage with the exhibition and committed the terrorism.
2. Terrorism is one of the predominant traits of the biological jew, hand in hand with their historical anarchist movements. They are born cowards and sneaks.
3. Yet another example that puts lie to our jew-dominated society’s lie that all jews were rounded up into camps, considering that over a year and a half after the war outbreak, these jews were running free (with jobs) to commit terrorist acts.
4. Yet another example that puts lie to our jew-dominated society’s lie that the concentration of jews into labor camps was: for no reason whatsoever™ rather than the obviously very real necessity of wartime security. Germany lost the First World War only because jews within Germany launched a takeover of the government (the misnamed German Revolution) which then surrendered unconditionally to its fellow jew-dominated countries known as the Allies. It’s the very reason why during the second war, jews were rounded up into camps where they could do no similar harm, and the event featured in this excellent article is just proof that the reason was justified.
Germany lost the First World War only because jews within Germany launched a takeover of the government (the misnamed German Revolution) which then surrendered unconditionally to its fellow jew-dominated countries known as the Allies.”
Could you elaborate on this point? And maybe even an article reference; book or webpage.
Very interesting. I’d like to know more about this. Thanks!
As would I, since the mainstream history narrative goes along the lines of “Germany secreted Lenin into Russia, and his ensuing revolution freed up the Eastern Front by building an impenetrable wall of Soviet neutrality, and Germany was going to double down on the Western front but ‘Murica showed up and the Kaiser decided to throw in the towel and surrender because the USA was just, somehow, too daunting”
The mainstream narrative itself has holes, one I find fascinating was that Worst President Wilson launched a two-fronted invasion and occupation of post-revolution Russia, in conjunction with other Euro powers + the Japanese, suggesting that the Eastern Front was not blocked by any impetnetrable wall of Soviet neutrality.
I appreciate this site’s transcripts of Pastor Emry, as he makes the case that the modern Jew is indeed the Edomite, which would mean that one day Obediah’s prophesied comeuppance will be upon them.
