Excellent story from a woman who grew up in Austria under Hitlers rule. She says that Hitler was such a nice man at the start telling everyone what they wanted to hear, so much so that Austria voted to annex themselves to Germany. It took 5 years with slow incremental changes before they were living under total tyranny.

Its so rare we get to hear these testimonials. Its wisdom we can never buy. But for 19 minutes you lose track of time hearing her stroy. How she believes an armed society is a safe society. She talks about education, health care, religion and politics. PLEASE WATCH THIS.

Wow. I'm just blown away by her story...I hope you're as deeply moved as I am by it.

"AN ARMED SOCIETY IS A SAFE SOCIETY" she says!!!

Honestly, I'm shocked no one has viewed her interview and commented on her story. I know I'm not the only one who had family in WWII who was affected by it...guess I'm just fascinated and humbled by history and the wars that have shaped our society.

More importantly, I'm concerned with the way things are headed and this woman has knowledge and insight into CURRENT political issues that affect us all. 

Does anyone else find there to be some common ground between what was happening then and what is happening now in the US and Canada?

If you guys can post about winston churchill's words of wisdom, what about Kitty Werthmann's words of wisdom? A lot of the folks on this board are old enough to appreciate where she's coming from and what she has to say.

Sorry to bring this up again, I guess since May 5th (the day that the Netherlands celebrates when Canadian tropps liberated Holland, recognized annually with 1 MILLION tulips in Canada's honour) and how emotional May 5th is for my family and many others, I'm just surprised no one has taken an interest in this lady's story.

She's really something. I hope you find the 19minutes to hear her out. She opened my eyes to the things the history books can't teach you.

Your link didn't work for me Huntress but I did look it up.
And to be honest with you I lost interest at the 5 minute mark..

There are millions and millions of stories about Hitler and the war,this one wasn't all that good atleast the part that I watched anyway.

Sorry..

Here's a story for you Huntress..

Imagine being an infantryman advancing across a patato field in Belgium in the Great War when suddenly you are raked by machinegun fire.
Your belly burns with pain and you fall down in the field between the rows of barely growing patatos..

You lay there and can see some of your intestines hanging out of your wound but you can do nothing...nothing but lay there and wait.

Wait for what? Death maybe?

But you just lay there and wait...for three days without water or food,not that food is a big deal at this point in time for you.

Then you hear someone approaching and you beg them to finish you off because at this point in time it would be a blessing.

They don't,instead they drag you back to safety and send you to a frontline hospital where after many months you heal and recover.

After the war is over you get married and have five children,4 boys and 1 girl.

And one of those boys gets married and has 4 kids....the youngest will someday post on a forum with a username of Sonny.

Thank you Grandpa...

Here is where you can read her story in a lot less than 19 minutes ;). I found it to be very interesting. Sonny, your war story is great, quite the story, but kitty's story really isn't a war story at all. It's about how slowly Hitler changed their country, and how they elected him in because they liked him.

Exactly Bonnie! It wasn't the "story" I was fascinated with. Its the politics behind how he came into power. And yes, becasue they liked him!!! And its appalling to think nowadays how anyone could like a man like Hitler, but it was those key incremental changes which were happening behind closed doors and overnight that were suddenly POLICY.

The correlation and whole reason I posted it was because we have had soooo many key incremental changes happening right in our own back yard and we voted obama, and harper into our countries. And now the gun policy, the health care, the education, the religion....its all being changed and we have no control over it.

Sorry I bored you Sonny, I was fully captivated by what she had to say. And thanks Bonnie for the link to a shorter version. I listened to her and it was like listening to my Oma talk. We've all heard plenty of war stories, but not the events which led up to it. What that was like.

Thank you to those who have taken the time to read into her (as per Bonnie's link) and/or watched the 19min long interview. I understand not everyone has 20 minutes in a day to watch a video. We do live in a fast paced society and convenience is the only thing that seems to matter anymore. Kinda makes me sick to be honest.

I completely agree about Obama, that man actually scares me for many reasons, but Harper is the one who scrapped the gun registry, so I disagree with you on that one E. I'm also not convinced he can be blamed for our health care issues either. I think we can mostly look in our own backyard for that.

I certainly don't think or ever said he was responsible for the health care issues.

I just implied that people are voted in because we like them.

For example: obama, harper, etc... It was just an example.

I do not agree with omnibus bills though. And Harper himself was an advicate against them...til he became pm. But I know everyone on this forum seems to love him (and he is an economist and has scrapped the gun registry), so I don't discuss him anymore on here. Scrapping a gun registry is a real good reason for many ppl to just look past all the other policies he's passing behind closed doors. But no one cares about that, and I don't care that no one else cares. Null.

Being new here it took me awhile to get around to watching this video, and like you Elizabeth, I did find it very interesting, even tho Ive heard similar storys told many times by many people. Practically everyone in my lineage has served in the military in one form or another, myself included, and I have met many Kitty's and listened to their stories. Nowadays the general public doesnt face the same percieved threat that was common place before the wars or even during the cold war so many simply dont understand what life was like for someone like Kitty and the freedoms she would have seen taken from her family. I personally consider myself very lucky, in my time we were witnessing the end of the cold war and performing peacekeeping missions in places like Syria and Lebanon, Ive never been shot at, but yet it was still a very disturbing time and the people we saw endured horrible circumstances. However these days it seems many have forgotten how quickly their world can be destroyed, they worry more about the neighbor with a rifle until some terrorist reminds them how fragile their cosy little world is.

Probably gonna step on a few toes now but... anyone that thinks the gun registry was dropped to benifit the gun owner is living in a dream, wake up, it was dropped because the majority tax payer values his dollar more than he hates your gun, no politician could sell it any longer.
