Other Losses DVD
Before Julian Assange and Edward Snowden astonished the world with their revelations about US secret documents, the Canadian James Bacque published his book “Other Losses” as early as 1989. The foreword was written by the US military historian Colonel Dr. Ernest F. Fisher.It is a detailed examination of how the US Army and the French Army became guilty of the deaths of about one million German prisoners of war – on the highest orders, but unnoticed by the world public. Together with the US army historian, Bacque analysed numerous American documents. They were able to prove that immediately after the German surrender, General Dwight Eisenhower, later President of the United States, had given the order to deny weather protection and food to the millions of German soldiers and civilian prisoners fenced in under the open sky. The Morgenthau Plan for the “pastoralisation” of Germany had been drafted by Roosevelt and Churchill at a secret conference in 1944. It envisaged the starvation of millions of prisoners of war and civilians – including Germans expelled from the East. Under the guise of “reparations”, industrial production sites were looted and everything still usable was taken away. Probably the biggest patent theft of all time took place – especially through the kidnapping of German specialists and highly trained professionals. It was not until 1946 that the situation for the maltreated people improved somewhat as a result of an extraordinary international relief action. It was led by the American Herbert Hoover (“Hoover Food”) and the Canadian MacKenzie. Our documentary – based on a total of three books by Bacque – shows astonishing and harrowing new footage, supplemented by interviews with American commanders of the death camps and with German victims who survived these inhuman hardships.
