Conclusion of the lectures at the Faculty of Political Science
"Two years ago I visited Hitler's birthplace, Braunau am Inn. They put a sign in front of his house, a commemorative stone from the Mauthausen concentration camp, with the following words on it: 'Never again fascism'. I started shouting towards the windows, I felt a relief." With these words, Branko Lustig started his fourth and final lecture at the Faculty of Political Science.
He emphasized how Hitler was not interested in denomination but rather race. Hitler was successfull in organizing the anti-Semitic programs and actions. That was recognized by the German rich men. National Socialists won the elections in 1933, and then Hitler completely got his space. He proclaimed the Nuremberg Laws based on racial grounds by which Germans protected their nation.
National Socialists did not start with the Jews. They first euthanized the patients who were deemed, mentally or physically inapt, thus vilifying the Germany. Afterwards they attacked the homosexuals, which could clearly be seen in the concentration camps in which they had to wear pink triangles as marks.
Lustig refered to the novel "The Tin Drum" in which its author Günter Grass comments how the fascism arised. Personally, Branko Lustig thinks that even some Jews were fascists. In the Theresienstadt and in the Warsaw Ghetto, Germans made policemen out of the Jews, who were worse than Germans themselves. In some countries, for example in the Independent State of Croatia, Germans were not tampering into concentration camps at all. The German ambassador from that period gave the note to Pavelić not to treat the inmates, especially the Serbs, so brutally. Belgrade was the first Judenfrei city, before Majdanek, Sobibor and Belzec. In Croatian concentration camps there were no Germans. The complete administration was managed by the Ustaše. Lustig concluded: "Germans found the help in all the countries in which they entered."
