One of the most popular marching anthems to ever come out of Germany, Erika is recognized far from its country of origin.
Often thought of as traditional folk tune, Erika is in fact a more recent military marching song created after 1930. The lyrics and the melody come from the German composer for marching songs, Herms Niel (1888–1954).
Niel was the leading Kapellmeister (the main bandleader) of the Reich Labour Service and composed many songs for the Reich over its twelve years of existence including 'Engel-land-lied’, one of the main German war songs throughout the conflict.
Published under its original title “Auf der Heide blüht ein kleines Blümelein” (“Erika”), the songs main theme focuses on a man longing for his sweetheart back home.
The name "Erika" has a double meaning both as a traditional German girls name and also that of a flower.
The flowers known in German as Heidekräuter (Erica) are a genus of about 860 species of flowering plants in the family Ericaceae. One variety of heather or heath flowers, Glockenheide (bell heather), has the Latin name Erica tetralix.
'Erika' is a flower found growing “auf der Heide” (on the heath) or in a moor in Germany and other places.

Germans migrated down the Danube in three major waves beginning more than 700 years ago, and settled in mountainous areas of Bohemia and Moravia. These Ethnic Germans became very prosperous and those in Hungary, Romania and Yugoslavia were known as Danube Swabians.
It is estimated that between 12 and 15 million ethnic Germans, including children, were systematically expelled, tortured, raped, put in camps, starved, enslaved and executed after World War II from 1944-1948, and later. Their only crime was being German. These actions were in many cases government sanctioned and done in full knowledge of the victorious allies. To date, no one has ever been held accountable, and most do not know or do not acknowledge this genocide.
Through interviews with survivors, the memory of this sad period in human history is preserved, and hopefully provides peace to the almost 15 million souls lost.
Germar Rudolf, who went to prison for giving an unbiased chemistry engineering report on the so-called "gas chambers" of Auschwitz, is exposing the core of the problem in this simple video. Of course, the book was banned, but you can download it, as well as many others, at http://holocausthandbooks.com/
A nice amateur movie based on the famous "bring your own weapons" classified : what if that classified was really from a time traveller looking for a mate ?
Low budget, so not many effects (the effect at the end is probably it), but still entertaining and fun to watch.
A documentary made before politically correct speech, showing the savage destruction of civilization which took place in Africa right after Caucasian colonists were robbed, slaughtered/raped and the survivors sent to Europa, from where their ancestors had come three generations prior to transform what was esssentially a desert into a garden... And how the uncivilized hordes of white-hating negroes who took over reverted it back to a wasteland in the blink of an eye.
