Nazis on Drugs

Check out this fascinating book review in the New York Times — High on Hitler and Meth: Book Says Nazis Were Fueled by Drugs by David Segal.

Here are a few choice quotes.

“Then along comes Norman Ohler, a soft-spoken 46-year-old novelist from Berlin, who rummages through military archives and emerges with this startling fact: The Third Reich was on drugs.”

“All sorts of drugs, actually, and in stupefying quantities, as Mr. Ohler documents in ‘Blitzed: Drugs in Nazi Germany,’ a best seller in Germany and Britain that will be published in the United States by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt in April.”

“Through interviews and documents that hadn’t been carefully studied before, he unearthed new details about how soldiers of the Wehrmacht were regularly supplied with methamphetamine of a quality that would give Walter White, of “Breaking Bad,” pangs of envy. Millions of doses, packaged as pills, were gobbled up in battles throughout the war, part of an officially sanctioned factory-to-front campaign against fatigue.”

“Mr. Ohler believes that Hitler’s drug consumption prolonged the war, by enabling his delusions.”

Watch the CCHR documentary, The Age of Fear: Psychiatry’s Reign of Terror, which exposes the origins of psychiatry, its roots in German psychiatric institutions and concentration camps. The obvious genesis of the worst atrocity in the history of the world lies in Germany, where a eugenics movement originated in the field of psychiatry. This documentary chronicles the history of these atrocities and how crimes against humanity are still being perpetrated by psychiatry today.
