'Protocols of the Elders of Zion' by Alternate Historian Robbie Taylor
Alternate Historian Alternate Historian Robbie Taylor says, Wilhelm Schoemann thought that his work at Isgarden in the last days of the 3rd Reich was a dead end in theoretical physics. Neo-Nazis in 1968 saw the potential of his work, though - and planned to use it to create the enemy they had always imagined.

The American Bund called for a total boycott of the film, and incited riots at many of the theaters showing it.

February 1
In 1959, the Japanese begin evacuations in order to save some of their people from the New Reich's Asian conquest.

February 4
In 1969, Wilhelm Schoemann finds himself in the alternate universe he has helped neo-Nazis create.

The devastation that he sees his double has caused brings him to the brink of suicidal despair.

February 2
In 1969, while sending a neo-Nazi into their new timeline, Faisal Yassin makes an offhand comment about German women.

February 3
In 1969, Faisal Yassin and Wilhelm Schoemann meet secretly to discuss what they feel has become a threat to their world, the New Reich they have helped create.

February 5
In 1941, the German Underground lost its Italian wing as the Greater Zionist Resistance obtained the blessings of the Pope as Europe's rightful rulers.

February 10
In 1992, Alex Haley, secretary to Malcolm Little of the Semitic-African Resistance, dies in exile in Namibia.

February 13

February 23

February 24
In 1975, guerilla fighter Nikolai Bulganin is finally caught and executed by Eurasian Union forces in Nizhny Novgorod, his home town. Bulganin, 79, had returned to his home because he felt too old to lead the struggle against the New Reich, and a cousin tipped the E.U. off to his presence.

April 2
In 1941, the German Underground secured control of most of northern Africa with the capture of Libya.

March 24
In 1944, Orde Wingate, a British convert and general in the Greater Zionist Resistance, is shot down by German Reich Luftwaffe over Burma. Wingate had been a natural at guerilla tactics, and joined the G.Z.R. after his own government proved unwilling to fight the rising fascist movement.

March 27
In 1945, the German New Reich's intracontinental missile program, the V4, produces an incredible strike on China.

Soon, German missiles would be menacing the world.

October 5
In 1941, Jewish Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis is lynched by American Bund brownshirts in Washington, D.C.

This event led the American Jewish and African-American communities to find common ground, forming the Semitic-African Resistance movement.

October 6
In 1973, the Yom Kippur War begins as New Reich stormtroopers blaze through the last surviving Jewish and Muslim villages in Palestine. The Reich at this point had eradicated Semitic existence from most of the northern hemisphere, and was about to begin its work on the southern.

October 20
In 1942, prominent African-Americans in Durham, North Carolina, issue the Durham Manifesto, calling on white Americans to stand for racial justice and end the scourge of hatred spreading across the country. Lynchings were at an all-time high, fanned by the fires of the German Underground's war in Eurasia and the American Bund's efforts to turn non-Aryan Americans into second-class citizens. While many reasonable people were swayed by the heart-felt plea of the manifesto, reason was not the emotion that was carrying the country away. Most of the signers of the manifesto were themselves lynched shortly after its publication.

October 22
In 1937, King Edward VII of Great Britain meets with German Underground leader Adolf Hitler and pledges his nation's support against the Greater Zionist Resistance.

In 1948, Republican Strom Thurmond of South Carolina defeated the American Bund candidate, Fritz Kuhn, and won the office of the presidency.

Its close ties to the New Reich in Europe were disturbing to all Americans who wanted a nation that still respected individual freedoms.

November 9
In 1934, Rabbi Carl Sagan was born in Brooklyn, New York. The spiritual leader of the Semitic-African Resistance in the northeastern United States, he led the non-violent movement through most of his life; after his wife and son were lynched in 1977, he began advocating more direct action against the worldwide Nazi movements.

November 15
In 1891, Erwin Rommel was born in Heidenheim, Germany. Astrid Pflaume recruited Rommel for the Greater Zionist Resistance herself, in spite of his gentile background, because she felt that they needed his military prowess.

November 16
In 1945, Yeshiva University opens its doors in New York City. The small college is established by educators from the Semitic-African Resistance in the hopes of changing American minds towards them. It closes its doors during the ascendance of the American Bund in the 1970's.

In 1990, following the long power struggle after Adolf Hitler's death, Albert Speer seizes the reigns of power in the New Reich. The power of the Reich in Eurasia and Africa is challenged only meekly by the few remaining independent nations of the western hemisphere.

The only major power in the hemisphere to still oppose the Nazi domination of the planet was Brazil.

December 5
In 1902, President Strom Thurmond was born in South Carolina.

December 10
In 1964, Martin Luther King, Jr., in an attempt to make the majority of Americans realize the plight being faced by African and Semitic people across the globe, leads the march of hundreds of thousands of people on Washington, D.C.

April 4

April 7
In 1963, Croatian partisan Josip Broz is captured by soldiers of the German Reich. Broz had led a 20-year campaign against the Reich in his native land, and even outlasted the Greater Zionist Resistance in Europe.

March 17

Irish leaders began a revolution against British rule on this most famous of Irish holidays.

February 8

Wells (African American), Archibald Grimke (African American), Henry Moskowitz (Jewish), Mary White Ovington (White), Oswald Garrison Villard (German-born White), and William English Walling (White, and son of a former slave owning family), to work on behalf of the rights of African Americans. During the nineteen forties, the rise of Hitler forced the NAACP to join forces with other indigenes, creating the Semitic-African Resistance (S.A.R). The S.A.R. were the heirs to the legacy of the Greater Zionist Resistance, attempting to protect their people after the G.Z.R. dream of conquest had been defeated.

January 24
In 1943, General Friedrich von Paulus of the German Underground, commanding officer of the 6th Army, requested permission from Adolf Hitler to accept the surrender of Greater Zionist Resistance soldiers in Russia.

January 23
In 1941, Senator Charles Lindbergh, leader of the American Bund party in the United States Senate, urges his fellow citizens to ally themselves with the German Underground.

January 16
In 1969, neo-Nazis converge on the laboratory of Faisal Yassin and Wilhelm Schoemann, ready to make a new world in their perverted image.

After seeing the caliber of men the neo-Nazis are entrusting with this operation, Schoemann begins to have serious second thoughts.

January 15
In 1929, Martin Luther King, Jr. was born in Atlanta, Georgia. He grew up to become the public face of the Semitic-African Resistance in America.

April 11
In 1945, in a rare moment, non-Jewish citizens of the former Greater Zionist Resistance in Gardelegen, Germany, rise up against New Reich forces and attempt to drive them from the city.

April 13
In 1941, although it had been a nominal ally of the German Underground, Japan abandons this stance when a small group of Japanese civilians are murdered by the G.U. in Berlin. They sign a treaty with the Greater Zionist Resistance, and promise to resist the racist aims of the G.U.

January 4
In 1891, German Underground general and New Reich leader Alfred Jodl was born in Wuerzburg, Germany.
