The total destruction of the German city of Dresden in February 1944 has never been justified. There are squalid attempts to downplay the numbers of martyred civilians. Over three days of infamy, 1,249 USAAF and RAF bombers removed from the face of the earth a once-great city. The holocaust, to give the inferno its proper term, is falsely claimed to have led to the loss of 22,000 to 25,000 lives. Common-sense, a formula that palace-publishers never waste their time with and think we won’t either, exposes the propagandists whitewash. Records reveal that before the outbreak of war the population of Dresden was 650,000. Records go on to reveal that in 1945, the population was 450,000. So, what happened to the 200,000 people no longer living in Dresden?
Apocalypse 1945: The Destruction of Dresden
At 10 p.m. on February 13-14, 1945, the Master Bomber broadcast the cryptic order: ‘Controller to Plate-Rack Force: Come in and bomb glow of red T.I.s as planned.’ The ill-famed R.A.F. attack on Dresden had begun. The target city was among Germany’s largest, but had little military or industrial value. It was a center for the evacuation of wounded servicemen, and schools, restaurants, and public buildings had been converted into hospitals.
