Kitty Werthmann has a warning for everyone.


“I am a witness to history.

“I cannot tell you that Hitler took Austria by tanks and guns; it would distort history.

If you remember the plot of the Sound of Music, the Von Trapp family escaped over the Alps rather than submit to the Nazis. Kitty wasn’t so lucky. Her family chose to stay in her native Austria. She was 10 years old, but bright and aware. And she was watching.

“We elected him by a landslide – 98 percent of the vote,” she recalls.

She wasn’t old enough to vote in 1938 – approaching her 11th birthday. But she remembers.

“Everyone thinks that Hitler just rolled in with his tanks and took Austria by force.”

No so.

Hitler is welcomed to Austria

“In 1938, Austria was in deep Depression. Nearly one-third of our workforce was unemployed. We had 25 percent inflation and 25 percent bank loan interest rates.

Farmers and business people were declaring bankruptcy daily. Young people were going from house to house begging for food. Not that they didn’t want to work; there simply weren’t any jobs.

“My mother was a Christian woman and believed in helping people in need. Every day we cooked a big kettle of soup and baked bread to feed those poor, hungry people – about 30 daily.’

“We looked to our neighbor on the north, Germany, where Hitler had been in power since 1933.” she recalls. “We had been told that they didn’t have unemployment or crime, and they had a high standard of living.

“Nothing was ever said about persecution of any group – Jewish or otherwise. We were led to believe that everyone in Germany was happy. We wanted the same way of life in Austria. We were promised that a vote for Hitler would mean the end of unemployment and help for the family. Hitler also said that businesses would be assisted, and farmers would get their farms back.

“Ninety-eight percent of the population voted to annex Austria to Germany and have Hitler for our ruler.

“We were overjoyed,” remembers Kitty, “and for three days we danced in the streets and had candlelight parades. The new government opened up big field kitchens and
everyone was fed.

“After the election, German officials were appointed, and, like a miracle, we suddenly had law and order. Three or four weeks later, everyone was employed. The government made sure that a lot of work was created through the Public Work Service.

“Hitler decided we should have equal rights for women. Before this, it was a custom that married Austrian women did not work outside the home. An able-bodied husband would be looked down on if he couldn’t support his family. Many women in the teaching profession were elated that they could retain the jobs they previously had been re-quired to give up for marriage.

“Then we lost religious education for kids

“Our education was nationalized. I attended a very good public school.. The population was predominantly Catholic, so we had religion in our schools. The day we elected Hitler (March 13, 1938), I walked into my schoolroom to find the crucifix replaced by Hitler’s picture hanging next to a Nazi flag. Our teacher, a very devout woman, stood up and told the class we wouldn’t pray or have religion anymore. Instead, we sang ‘Deutschland, Deutschland, Uber Alles,’ and had physical education.

“Sunday became National Youth Day with compulsory attendance. Parents were not pleased about the sudden change in curriculum. They were told that if they did not send us, they would receive a stiff letter of warning the first time. The second time they would be fined the equivalent of $300, and the third time they would be subject to jail.”

And then things got worse.

“The first two hours consisted of political indoctrination. The rest of the day we had sports. As time went along, we loved it. Oh, we had so much fun and got our sports equipment free.

“We would go home and gleefully tell our parents about the wonderful time we had.

“My mother was very unhappy,” remembers Kitty. “When the next term started, she took me out of public school and put me in a convent. I told her she couldn’t do that and she told me that someday when I grew up, I would be grateful. There was a very good curriculum, but hardly any fun – no sports, and no political indoctrination.

“I hated it at first but felt I could tolerate it. Every once in a while, on holidays, I went home. I would go back to my old friends and ask what was going on and what they were doing.

“Their loose lifestyle was very alarming to me. They lived without religion. By that time, unwed mothers were glorified for having a baby for Hitler.

“It seemed strange to me that our society changed so suddenly. As time went along, I realized what a great deed my mother did so that I wasn’t exposed to that kind of humanistic philosophy.

“In 1939, the war started, and a food bank was established. All food was rationed and could only be purchased using food stamps. At the same time, a full-employment law was passed which meant if you didn’t work, you didn’t get a ration card, and, if you didn’t have a card, you starved to death.

“Women who stayed home to raise their families didn’t have any marketable skills and often had to take jobs more suited for men.

“Soon after this, the draft was implemented.

“It was compulsory for young people, male and female, to give one year to the labor corps,” remembers Kitty. “During the day, the girls worked on the farms, and at night they returned to their barracks for military training just like the boys.

“They were trained to be anti-aircraft gunners and participated in the signal corps. After the labor corps, they were not discharged but were used in the front lines.

“When I go back to Austria to visit my family and friends, most of these women are emotional cripples because they just were not equipped to handle the horrors of combat.

“Three months before I turned 18, I was severely injured in an air raid attack. I nearly had a leg amputated, so I was spared having to go into the labor corps and into military service.

“When the mothers had to go out into the work force, the government immediately established child care centers.

“You could take your children ages four weeks old to school age and leave them there around-the-clock, seven days a week, under the total care of the government.

“The state raised a whole generation of children. There were no motherly women to take care of the children, just people highly trained in child psychology. By this time, no one talked about equal rights. We knew we had been had.

“Before Hitler, we had very good medical care. Many American doctors trained at the University of Vienna..

“After Hitler, health care was socialized, free for everyone. Doctors were salaried by the government. The problem was, since it was free, the people were going to the doctors for everything.

“When the good doctor arrived at his office at 8 a.m., 40 people were already waiting and, at the same time, the hospitals were full.

“If you needed elective surgery, you had to wait a year or two for your turn. There was no money for research as it was poured into socialized medicine. Research at the medical schools literally stopped, so the best doctors left Austria and emigrated to other countries.

“As for healthcare, our tax rates went up to 80 percent of our income. Newlyweds immediately received a $1,000 loan from the government to establish a household. We had big programs for families.

“All day care and education were free. High schools were taken over by the government and college tuition was subsidized. Everyone was entitled to free handouts, such as food stamps, clothing, and housing.

“We had another agency designed to monitor business. My brother-in-law owned a restaurant that had square tables.

“Government officials told him he had to replace them with round tables because people might bump themselves on the corners. Then they said he had to have additional bathroom facilities. It was just a small dairy business with a snack bar. He couldn’t meet all the demands.

“Soon, he went out of business. If the government owned the large businesses and not many small ones existed, it could be in control.

“We had consumer protection, too

“We were told how to shop and what to buy. Free enterprise was essentially abolished. We had a planning agency specially designed for farmers. The agents would go to the farms, count the livestock, and then tell the farmers what to produce, and how to produce it.

“In 1944, I was a student teacher in a small village in the Alps. The villagers were surrounded by mountain passes which, in the winter, were closed off with snow, causing people to be isolated.

“So people intermarried and offspring were sometimes retarded. When I arrived, I was told there were 15 mentally retarded adults, but they were all useful and did good manual work.

“I knew one, named Vincent, very well. He was a janitor of the school. One day I looked out the window and saw Vincent and others getting into a van.

“I asked my superior where they were going. She said to an institution where the State Health Department would teach them a trade, and to read and write. The families were required to sign papers with a little clause that they could not visit for 6 months.

“They were told visits would interfere with the program and might cause homesickness.

“As time passed, letters started to dribble back saying these people died a natural, merciful death. The villagers were not fooled. We suspected what was happening. Those people left in excellent physical health and all died within 6 months. We called this euthanasia.

“Next came gun registration. People were getting injured by guns. Hitler said that the real way to catch criminals (we still had a few) was by matching serial numbers on guns. Most citizens were law-abiding and dutifully marched to the police station to register their firearms. Not long afterwards, the police said that it was best for everyone to turn in their guns. The authorities already knew who had them, so it was futile not to comply voluntarily.

“No more freedom of speech. Anyone who said something against the government was taken away. We knew many people who were arrested, not only Jews, but also priests and ministers who spoke up.

“Totalitarianism didn’t come quickly, it took 5 years from 1938 until 1943, to realize full dictatorship in Austria. Had it happened overnight, my countrymen would have fought to the last breath. Instead, we had creeping gradualism. Now, our only weapons were broom handles. The whole idea sounds almost unbelievable that the state, little by little eroded our freedom.”

“This is my eyewitness account.

“It’s true. Those of us who sailed past the Statue of Liberty came to a country of unbelievable freedom and opportunity.

“America is truly is the greatest country in the world. “Don’t let freedom slip away.

“After America, there is no place to go.” ~Kitty Werthmann.

**Please note. I may not agree with Kitty Werthmann’s religious beliefs, but I do believe that we can learn from what she has said here.

**I have recently started reading “The Hiding Place” by Corrie ten Boom. It also details how things changed (in Holland) slowly over the course of a few years. At first they were a neutral country, but then the Germans took over and things changed gradually for the worst. Curfews were implemented, and at first, it was 10pm. Over time it ended up getting lowered to 8pm.. Identity cards were mandatory and any soldiers or policemen could ask to see them at any time and they had to be produces. Ration cards were implemented also and you could only use them for what was advertised in the paper, nothing else.  (They were being told what they could and could not buy.)
I haven’t read it all yet but it is very telling. If you think about it, you can see these things starting to happen in many places. Slowly but surely we are losing our rights, but most people aren’t noticing because they believe it is for the best. But it’s not and these people need to wake up and see what’s going on.
It’s so important to be seeking Jesus in these end times, because without Salvation through him, there is no hope.

    • This is very true. I live in Australia and things are ramping up over here too and people seem to have lost their minds because they are falling for it all.
      I’m reading 1984 by George Orwell at the moment and I can’t believe how eerily similar it is to the times we are in now.
      People really do seem to be losing track of what we once were as a country and are singing the praises of the loss of rights and freedoms now. 😦

      • America is in the throws of this same repeat of history. We are going down hill very fast. Hitler is dead. Satan is alive and seeking all who he may devour. He is against all and every thing that is good and promoting everything that he can to deceive the world and its people. I will not let satan defeat me. I STAND WITH JESUS CHRIST WHO IS ALIVE AND WELL AND WILL REIGN OVER ALL. HE IS THE LORD OF LORDS AND KING OF KINGS. WAKE UP PEOPLE. TRUST IN JESUS CHRIST. HE IS THE ONLY WAY THE TRUTH AND LIFE AND OUR ONLY HOPE OF PEACE AND HAPPINESS ON THIS EARTH AND BEYOND.

  1. Thank you for your eye witness account. I appreciate your courage to share. Im quite shocked at the process. We are nesring the end of that process now. The authorities are revealing their intentions..we have a very short time left and all earthly freedom will be gone. Yet there is a freedom that can never be lost. John 3:16. May we all have faith and be ready to stand before the Son of God. He is coming! I will not be suprised that your eyes will see Him coming in the clouds…and the sorrow of this present day is nothing compared to the glory which is coming! Praise God.

    • Just to clarify, this is not my personal eye witness account. I came across this some time ago and reposted it on the blog.

      What she says is so vitally important to listen to, because these things are happening quite rapidly in many countries.

  2. My mother was German and told me a similar story. At least what she could remember of it. PTSD left many holes in her memory. We are in the middle of that same pattern here now. We have been sold out to the 1% with all the money who want to rule the whole thing. Conflict is arranged to prove their points. History will repeat itself. Some will stand against it. The rest will buy into it. We celebrate our independence today but we have no idea that it’s being pulled out from under us. God help us all.

    • Wow. Your mother would have had some stories! I’m sorry to hear that she has PTSD. That’s such a debilitating disorder to have I would imagine.
      I came out of a small cult like home church and that alone did a fair bit of damage, not only to myself, but to others who stayed longer than I did. It’s been almost 4 years since I left, and things are much better, but there are a few niggly things that still affect me from time to time. I couldn’t imagine what your mother would have gone through. 😦

      I don’t live in America, but I can definitely see how this is happening over there. It’s happening in Australia too, albeit not in such a big way, yet.

      • I’m from Germany but left as a small child. My brother and sister had a few years of school in Germany and I could tell they were indoctrinated because we had totally different views about many things like: Israel, home schooling,
        freedom, etc… they believed the government should have more control while I believe the opposite. I used to joke telling them I was the smartest of us 3 because I waited for the war to be over before I was born.
