Yes, this is from Norway, from 21 July, 1941 Hereby [you are] called into SS-Standarte ‘Nordland’ One believed in the national-socialism, that it was something ‘forthcoming’, ‘new’ And it seemed like that too And we believed it to be bringing, if not a ‘paradise’, then something similar to one I was determined in joining the SS,
I was counting on that It was then like the [French] Foreign Legion…
Many went there; who did not fit in Sweden[‘s society] I felt I was maladjusted [“misfit”] It was all [sorts of] nastiness, evil,
it was murder of everything alive There existed no reason, sense…
in war there is no sense When we were at Kharkov, ’43, and I saw all that nasty,
there was no discernment with people,
there was just… killing all With that moment, I was no longer nazi,
I was not a nazi anymore,
I became a soldier who only wanted home It was such a damned… shit… It was there, that one of our Panzers… a German one… It drives forth, and there was a house, and it goes through the house, and comes out the other side… And there lies not just childrens’ clothes,
but pieces & threads of children.. skulls, of children… [upset weeping] [breaks down]…”painful”[inaudible, crying] It was [damn] devastating Interviewer: “How do you feel today?” Damned/awful [that it was done, and can’t be undone] I was engulfed in that [the early nazism], or I think so,
because it can’t be (because of) anything else, I could as easily had become a communist,
or whatever else… Interviewer: “How do you feel about those
[neo-nazis] who still today supports nazism…?” That it’s sick.
It’s sick. It’s sick… nothing else.
That’s what I can say about them
