In Mein Kampf, Hitler wrote about his plans for these "Rhineland Bastards". When he came to power, one of his first directives was aimed at these mixed-race children. Underscoring Hitler's obsession with racial purity, by 1937, every identified mixed-race child in the Rhineland had been forcibly sterilized, in order to prevent further "race polluting", as Hitler termed it.
Hans Hauck, a Black Holocaust survivor and a victim of Hitler's mandatory sterilisation program, explained in the film "Hitler's Forgotten Victims" that, when he was forced to undergo sterilisation as a teenager, he was given no anaesthetic. Once he received his sterilisation certificate, he was "free to go", so long as he agreed to have no sexual relations whatsoever with Germans.
Although most Black Germans attempted to escape their fatherland, heading for France where people like Josephine Baker were steadily aiding and supporting the French Underground, many still encountered problems elsewhere. Nations shut their doors to Germans, including the Black ones. Some Black Germans were able to eke out a living during Hitler's reign of terror by performing in Vaudeville shows, but many Blacks, steadfast in their belief that they were German first, Black second, opted to remain in Germany. Some fought with the Nazis (a few even became Lutwaffe pilots)!
read J.Ducan post please,why do you think the Africans run to Frace, cause for most of them it's there birth place before they went woundering to naibouring countries.The Germans did not even have a unit of African soildiers in ww1 or ww2 at all, while the germans did have units of asians and middle eastern soildiers. The German Govenment did not regonsized them as being german at all just like how they think of the jews NOT GERMAN.MY point is that just cause they were staying in Germany that does not mean there classed as Germans.
My dad came to Austraila from England in 1956 and guess what, he's still an Englishman a british subject.If ever Austrlaia and England went to war,doubt that will ever happend. It will sound something like this- What should we do with all of these British subjects living in Austraila.
During ww2 Britain's P/M Churchill order German subjects that were living in Britain to go back to Germany,these Germans are living in England and not even classed as English people.So most of those Africans staying in Germany would of been classed as French Africans cause that's were they orginginated from apart from Africa.
