Historical Interest from WW2 by Craig White.
During the preparations for Germany's Operation Sea Lion (the intendedinvasion of Britain), Reinhard Heydrich's office tasked Walter Schellenberg to prepare the infamous Sonderfahndungsliste, the special search list. It directed Franz Six to round up 3,000 specific individuals during the planned Nazi invasion of Great Britain. The SS had produced similar litterature when preparing for the invasion of Poland. Schellenberg also identified numerous groups and institutions to be targeted for persecution. Among these was the "British Israel World Federation."
British Israelites, or adherents of related offshoots (e.g. Nordic Israelism) were persecuted or suppressed by the Nazis during
World War Il.
In Nazi occupied territories in Europe, British Israelite or related literature was banned because it was considered as having a Jewish agenda or considered to be anti-German (see Assyria and Germany in Anglo-Israelism). Nederlandsche Israel-Kring, a Netherlands based organisation teaching the Dutch offshoot of British Israelism was closed down by the Nazis.
Like the Jehovah’s Witnesses and other minority Christian groups who were persecuted by the Nazis,
British Israelites or related adherents of offshoot teachings were arrested by the Gestapo and placed in Nazi concentration camps (see Purple triangle), where some died.
The son of Nordic Israelite identity preacher Albert Hiorth, Frederik Hiorth, died in a Nazi concentration camp for his related British Israelite beliefs. While most British Israelites or related offshoots were persecuted by the Nazis because they were philo-semites (Philo-Semitism).
Paradoxically the Christian Identity movement [rather, some of them] which sprung from British Israelism turned into antisemitism and [in our time] supported Nazism.
