Various Maps on the German Language

These maps show beautifully, why our national anthem states: “[...] Von der Maas bis an die Memel, Von der Etsch bis an den Belt [...]” resp. in English “[...] From the Meuse to the Memel, From the Adige to the Belt [...]”. This simply is the ancestral Heimat of our people.

Note on Alsace-Lorraine and on France's policy of robbery and expulsion against Germany

The map version of the edition A presents Dutch and Wen­dish in a separate graph­ic, it will be pub­li­cized in summer 2022. John de Nugent wholeheartedly values French cul­ture and the French language. However, his thoughts re­gard­ing French poli­cy towards the German Reich and the German peo­ples, especially with regard to Al­sace-Lor­raine, are clear.

Article extract, publicized on JohndeNugent.com, Oc­to­ber 20, 2015: “[...] The entire Thirty Years War of 1618-48 was not really a Protestant-Catholic thing at all, but a French plot to break Germany up and in the end it was broken into 256 independent micro-countries. One-third of the Ger­man peo­ple had perished after decades of starvation, rape, mer­ce­nary atrocities, and mass murder. To the shock of all sincere Catho­lics, Car­di­nal Richelieu of France, the prime minister, ac­tu­al­ly sent in French troops and money to aid the Prot­es­tant ‘heretics’ in Germany and the invading Swedish Prot­es­tants! A Catholic cardinal aid­ing Protestants?

It is always about this: Divide-and-con­quer, divide-and-conquer -- the age-old recipe that takes ad­van­tage of hu­man pug­na­cious­ness and pig-headed stupidity.

Later on, France despicably seized the purely German-speak­ing areas of Alsace and Lorraine while Germany (with Po­land) was defending white, Christian Europe against the Turks!
