Das Schwarze Korps
Das Schwarze Korps
(German for The Black Corps) was the official newspaper of the Schutzstaffel
Schutzstaffel
(SS). This newspaper was published on Wednesdays and distributed free of charge. Each SS member was encouraged to read it. The chief editor was SS leader Gunter d'Alquen;[1] the publisher was Max Amann
Max Amann
of the Franz-Eher-Verlag publishing company. The paper was hostile to many groups, with frequent articles condemning the Catholic Church
Catholic Church
(any act of intervention with the state being denounced as "political Catholicism"), Jews, Communism, Freemasonry and others.[2] The newspaper was published in close co-operation with the Sicherheitsdienst
Sicherheitsdienst
(SD; Security Service), which had substantial editorial control. The first edition appeared on 6 March 1935.[3] In November of the same year, publication reached 200,000 and by 1944 had increased to 750,000.[3] The newspaper saw some distribution outside Germany.[a]

History and its articles[edit] Formed in 1935, Das Schwarze Korps, was the official newspaper of the Schutzstaffel
Schutzstaffel
(SS). The newspaper was created to be a defender of Nazism, to disseminate and promote the ideological messages of their organization and its leader, Reichsführer-SS
Reichsführer-SS
Heinrich Himmler.[5] The paper was used to reinforced Himmler's beliefs, to identify and attack elements within German society that he found unacceptable, to boost morale among members of the SS, to combat anything considered to be pernicious enemies within the Nazi state, and to encourage the racial doctrine that "pure-blooded Nordics must be bred"—which included promoting the idea that it was partially the responsibility of members of the "elite" SS corps to correspondingly produce "beautiful" illegitimate children.[6] Illegitimate births aside, marriage was depicted as an obligation to the state, part of the mechanism to establish a racially productive community in which individual happiness was of no importance.[7] On other occasions the paper served to inform its readers on the pseudo-scientific research Himmler commissioned to support his beliefs in the mystical powers of the ancient Germanic predecessors. In one edition, Das Schwarze Korps
Das Schwarze Korps
reported on the archaeological whereabouts (previously unknown) of Henry I's remains, claiming that, "scientific evidence has established that the remains discovered during excavations in the crypt of Quedlinburg cathedral are in fact those of Henry I."[8] Besides the esoteric pursuits of Himmler, the SS newspaper strongly criticized party leaders whose worldview differed from SS doctrine.[9] Carefully crafted articles gave SS men and the other readers an elitist image of the organization. This by means of information about the SS, its activities and successes, which were constantly scattered throughout the paper.[10] Das Schwarze Korps
Das Schwarze Korps
routinely contained foreign news reports, analyses of threats, and theoretical essays on Nazi policies.[11] Praise for motherly women and families was contrasted with discrediting the women's movement of "Amazons" and women that the Nazis considered too manly.[12] It had a strong pro-natalist slant, though at one point, it declared some tactics were excessive: an employee being publicly admonished by a superior to have children, to divorce or adopt.[13] Anti-clerical articles appeared in the paper, many of which attacked senior members of the clergy, each article part of an effort to "demolish the moral authority of the Catholic Church."[14] Christian concepts like original sin were described as "intolerable" ideas that were "incompatible" with Nordic man and the otherwise "heroic ideology" about Germanic blood.[15] The paper also covered foreign press attacks with instructions on how to refute them.[16] In accordance with doctrines of Blood and Soil, it spoke of the need to break up the aristocratic estates, although this was not implemented.[17] Historian Amy Carney described Das Schwarze Korps as "a conduit through which the SS was able to reveal its ambitions to the German people."[18][b] Das Schwarze Korps
Das Schwarze Korps
provided members of the SS with articles reminding them of their need to "be mindful of their family's biological heritage when marrying" and for general readers, the paper demonstrated "how dedicated its men were to their Führer
Führer
and to the Reich and what an example they were setting for the entire Volk by adhering to the principles of eugenics."[18] Prior to the passing of the 1935 Nuremberg Laws, it called for a law to ban Rassenschande
Rassenschande
or intercourse between Jews
Jews
and Germans, as preferable to the extra-legal violence that the SA Stormtroopers indulged in;[19] after that edition, articles on the "Jewish Question" did not increase in number, but did grow more harsh in tone.[20]. Judicial leniency was either criticized or ridiculed and a 1937 issue explained the obligation of lawyers to protect the "national community."[21] In the late 1930s, the magazine featured an article written by physicist and Nobel Prize
Nobel Prize
winner Johannes Stark, who argued that the racial, physical triumph of the Aryan
Aryan
over 'the Jew' would only be a "partial victory" unless Jewish ideas and sentiments were not also fully destroyed. Stark added that, "we also have to eradicate the Jewish spirit, whose blood can flow just as undisturbed today as before if its carriers hold beautiful Aryan
Aryan
passes."[22] In October 1938, an editorial argued that German Jews
Jews
as "are also responsible for whatever world Jewry undertakes against Germany" and that they were also "liable for the damages which world Jewry inflicts and will inflict upon us."[23][24] A subsequent edition of Das Schwarze Korps
Das Schwarze Korps
communicated the harsh and foreboding message that if any single Jew harmed a German, they would all be held responsible, while another explicitly stated: "The day a murder weapon that is Jewish or bought by Jews
Jews
rises against one of the leading men of Germany, there will be no more Jews
Jews
in Germany!"[25] Immediately in the wake of the carnage of Kristallnacht, Nazi threats were becoming reality and the SS-sponsored paper cited among the reasons for their violence: anti-Semitism was prevalent in all racially healthy peoples for thousands of years, the Nazis were the only ones willing and "tough enough" to take effective and practical actions, and the international community was full of hypocrites who failed to help the Jews
Jews
out—namely when they refused to offer them "safe refuge."[26] Additional propagandistic usage of the SS journal included the promotion of the cult of personality surrounding Adolf Hitler, as his portraits abounded within the text. A telling example of the adulation dedicated to the Nazi leader shows in the following extract from Das Schwarze Korps:

The Führer
Führer
is the highest gift to the nation. He is the German fulfilment. An artist who wants to render the Führer
Führer
must be more than an artist. The entire German people and German eternity will stand silently in front of this work, filled with emotions to gain strength from it today and for all time. Holy is the art and the call to serve the people. Only the best may dare to render the Führer.[27]

Such deification of Hitler accompanied by anti-Semitic propaganda made the editorial staff of the SS newspaper a responsible entity in the institutional framework of the Holocaust. The newspaper itself is an indictment against the National Socialists collectively since it revealed even before the war that the SS was prepared to take radical action against the Jews.[26] Besides praising Hitler, the paper made specious claims against any perceived enemy; for example, Jews
Jews
were portrayed as having an inclination towards Bolshevism
Bolshevism
(a widely-known enemy of the Nazi state) in Das Schwarze Korps, indicated in the following excerpt from the 24 November 1938 edition:

Least of all we do not want to see hundreds of thousands of impoverished Jews
Jews
as a breeding-ground for Bolshevism
Bolshevism
and a recruiting base for the political and sub-humanity that, as a result of the selection process, is disintegrating on the margins of our own nationhood...In the event of such a development, we would face the harsh necessity of wiping out the Jewish underworld just as we are used to wiping out criminals in our orderly state: with fire and sword. The result would be the actual and definitive end of Jewry in Germany, its total extermination.[28][c]

Hate-speech from the editors of the SS newspaper portended the Jews' later fate. In lieu of the sweeping statements made in the official SS-journal, SD chief Reinhard Heydrich
Reinhard Heydrich
rarely appears within its pages, as he thought it was "ill-organized and poorly written."[30] This did not stop Heydrich from using the paper to reinforce his message that any and all dissenters to the Anschluss
Anschluss
with Austria were to be arrested, whether or not they wore a Nazi uniform.[31] During the war, whenever the Waffen-SS
Waffen-SS
would join the army in maneuvers, particularly at Hitler's behest, the instances were proudly reported in Das Schwarze Korps.[32] Deliberate propaganda efforts to bolster morale formed a notable portion of the content of the newspaper, especially in encouraging members of the SS and the public at large to remain prepared to report anyone who might oppose the war effort. For example, a 1943 article told the story of a soldier on leave from Stalingrad who overheard an old woman thought to be mentally impaired complaining about the war; the paper encouraged extreme action against people like this, calling them "cowardly traitors" and claiming in no uncertain terms that such persons deserve the same "harshness that we show toward the enemy, regardless of how stupid and innocuous we find them. This a war for our very survival. He who does not want our victory wants our defeat. He who wants our defeat wants our death."[33] References[edit] Informational notes[edit]
