>>570371 No one claims Nazis wanted to exterminate them, they were so few they were of no consideration. But now people who post that picture want to exterminate them anyways, so the point of the picture and the people who post it are stupid.
>>570371 It is true, but some things should be pointed out: volunteer units were often given second-rate equipment, and many of these units weren't in it for the ideological side of the conflict. The Azad Hind (Indian volunteers, upper left) were there because they thought if Hitler won, the Raj would end. Africans were rarely used in the Heer, same with Arabs, and so never formed a unit of any major consequence.
Actually, Rommel forbade the raising of native Libyan units because he felt the Italians had relied on them too much, and that was the reason they'd done so poorly in late-1940. That image also omits that many "volunteer" units were later staffed by conscripts.
So true, but there's a lot more to the story than the image and captions convey.
>>570371 Subhuman is the wrong word. They were human, but the Nazi-Aryans were considered better humans. Lesser-human would be a better way of describing what the Nazis meant when they talked about untermenschen.
>If they had blacks fighting for them it means they weren't racist! How idiotic. The Romans employed barbarians that they despised to fight for them. The Rhodesians and South Africans had black soldiers despite an official policy of apartheid. Getting some idiot to die for you is not proof that you like their kind.
>>570926 They were very easy to train, pay out (considering the wages Africans normally got back then it's pretty big and paying the widow of the guy dies is pretty paltry but then again African wages are abysmally low and being a soldier got you something resembling a decent salary.) and you gave no fucks about them since you can train more since Africans are disposable.
>>570371 Cornelius Ryan in his book 'The Longest Day' claims that US Army captured Wehrmacht soldiers with Asian facial features. They couldn't communicate until they found a specialist in Central Asian languages. Those 2 soldiers were forcibly taken to Red Army, captured by Wehrmacht, forcibly taken once again and sent to fight on Western Front. Germany had no problem with Asians, Indians or Turks, but their propaganda showed black US soldiers as barbarian murderers and rapists that want to destroy European civilisation.
Gotta love the simplistic "people think nazis were [insert something blatantly false here], when in reality the complete opposite was true, as proven by this handful of pictures"- thing all of these have going.
>>571763 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yang_Kyoungjong >Korean foced to serve in Imperial Japanese Army >Gets captured by Soviets and send him to camp >Germans invade, soviets take huge casualties and press the prisoners into military units >Gets captured by the Germans and serves in second rate unit made out of formed prisoners of war. Sent to guard Normandy >captured by Americans during D-Day
so her served in 4 different armies and was captured 3 times. Also these is a korean film about him, My Way, but it's pretty bad
