Whoever is concerned with processes having taken place in Germany from 1933 to 1945 is often hastily regarded politically by superficial fellow men.
Very often these are contemporaries who are not really able to form a political opinion of their own and cannot judge the statement of others realistically. So it is expressively pointed out here that dealing with the Deutsche Reichsbahn and further topics from Germany before 1945 is by far no appreciation of the political events of that time!
The German Reichsbahn was firmly involved in the cynic policy of the fascist dictatorship and its war machine. These and all other irrefutable historical truths are not here under discussion!
The subject of this informative compilation is rather a view on technical states, processes and relations.
Very many historians are precedentally concerned with political and cultural events, against which nothing can be objected. Unfortunately much too seldom technical aspects are shown as the work of human beings with the original target of benefit for everyone. Certainly human work was abused again and again in history and used as harm to human beings, but therein is no difference of this time to other epochs. So no political attitude can be derived from any dealing with technical issues of any period. Whoever is reading the following pages attentively, will find out that they do not contain any identification with National Socialist ideas, but dissociate expressively and with no restriction from them.
