On the night of August 31st – September 1st, 1939 Nazis (real actual factual members of the Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei) took several concentration camp prisoners and one Silesian farmer with pro-Polish sympathies arrested the day before and murdered them after a short broadcast in Polish to make it appear as if there had been a Polish attack on a small radio station in Gleiwitz. This was used as the primary casus belli for the Nazi conquest of Poland.

It was what is commonly called a ‘false flag’ operation.

A second German soldier has been arrested in the investigation into an alleged false flag terror attack. The suspects are accused of plotting to shoot left-wing politicians and then pin the blame on Syrian refugees in Germany. The first soldier in the plot was found to be posing as a Syrian. The case has fueled concern over a larger neo-Nazi network within the German army.
