(translated!) A video to share the film of the first Dutch Waffen-SS battalion. We will see the Battalion in the Hague or 'Den Haag' Holland. They're swearing in to the Waffen-SS and declaring loyalty to Adolf Hitler (something many Dutch Waffen-SS men didn't like BTW). The leader of the Dutch Nazi party the NSB Ir. Anton Adriaan Mussert says some final words to the men. Many high Nazi's are present at the 'Binnenhof' in Den Haag. Some of them are later killed after the war for war crimes or betrayed.
This video is of great historical value in my opinion since it shows an important part of the Dutch WW2 history. So see this as so. For the non Dutch speaking people, there are no offensive words in this video. It's very interesting to hear how the Dutch Nazi's spoke at the time and how they organized things. I will type some information in the video also a disclaimer in the beginning otherwise I will be bombed by negative comments and other ridiculous things.
The picture is still interesting even though it's in Dutch. I will translate some parts so non Dutch speaking people can understand it. I will type it in the video. This video is not meant to adore the Dutch SS but people should have some respect for them. You can see their faces, happy and not knowing were they signed up for. Those men fought one of the most brutal battles of men kind and those men fought one of the hardest battles of Dutch history. But they received no respect or honor what so ever. This is understandable on one hand but on the other, I think that we do not have the right to call these men traitors or anything. They are excellent fighters but I don't encourage fighting for the German cause of course. But this fight against the Russians wasn't only for Germany but also for Holland in their opinion. And maybe they were right in one way with their fight. I've ordered a book about the Dutch SS and I'm searching on more information.
The rest is pending for now.
