NOTES: Nine of human troops shall be put aside separated by judgment and council: Their destiny shall be divided in percentage: The Allies’ conferences concerning the post-war settlement of nine countries (Germany, Austria, Yugoslavia, Greece, Hungary, Bulgaria, Rumania, Poland and Czechoslovakia) shall decide their destiny in proportion to the occupiers’ politico-military influences upon them;

« Accord of the occupying powers as to the administration of Germany. June 5 [1945]. Declaration of the four powers (USA, USSR, Great Britain and France) in Berlin. The European consultative Commission, which started its works on January 14, 1944, in London, envisaged without delay, at the instigation of the British, a division of Germany into occupation zones and not into several countries. On 12 September, 1944, the Big Three sign the protocol concerning the occupation zones in Germany in the frontiers of the Reich of December 31, 1937, as well as the administration of the Greater Berlin. These accords were ratified at Yalta. Stalin accepted, equally, on this occasion of the Big Three’s conference that France would be the fourth occupation power and seated at the Allied Control Council. He added there a condition: that the territory of the French occupation zone should be deducted from those of the British and American zones.» (Kaspi, 1980, p.517).

« The division of Germany (1945-9) Germany was divided into four zones by the Soviet Union in the east, Britain in the north, France in the west and the US in the south. All German territories east of the Rivers Oder and Neisse were placed under Polish and Soviet administration. Despite initial endeavours at cooperation, which only succeeded in a few circumstances such as the Nuremberg Trials, the Soviet zone became administered increasingly separately from the other three… East Germany (1949-90) The German Democratic Republic (GDR) was founded in the Soviet eastern zone on 7 October 1949, in response to the foundation of the FRG. Led by Ulbricht, who transformed it into a Communist satellite state of the Soviet Union, the GDR’s economy suffered from its transformation into a centrally planned economy, and from the dismantling of industries by the Soviet Union. Disenchantment with the dictatorial regime and the slow economic recovery compared to West Germany sparked off an uprising of over 300,000 workers on 17 June 1953, which was crushed by Soviet tanks. However, the country’s viability continued to be challenged by the exodus of hundreds of thousands of East Germans to West Berlin every year. To enable East Germany’s continued existence, the Berlin Wall was built on 13 August 1961 as a complement to the existing impenetrable border between East and West Germany... West Germany (since 1949) the Federal Republic of Germany (FRG) was founded on 23 May 1949, and after a narrow election victory Adenauer became its first Chancellor. Aided by a rapid economic recovery masterminded by Erhard, the new democracy won general acceptance and support. This stability was further strengthened by Adenauer’s policy of integration into the Western alliance, e.g. through European integration and the joining of NATO, which enabled the speedy gain of full sovereignty for the new state from the Western allies.» (
Palmowski, p.256).

« Austria at the end of the war. April 27, 1945. The former Federal Chancellor, a Social-Democrat, Karl Renner formed an Austrian government recognized by the Occidental powers on July 7, 1945. This government enjoyed a liberty of decision otherwise limited by the inter-Allied Control Council which ordains in unanimity. Austria has been finally shared in four occupation zones like Germany.» (Kaspi, id., p.502-505); « Austria: Allied occupation (1945-55) In 1945, Austria was occupied in four zones by the Allies (USSR, USA, UK, and France), who encouraged the readoption of the 1920 Constitution under the leadership of Renner, and the formation of political parties. Renner had persuaded the Allies to regard Austria not as a perpetrator, but as Nazism’s ‘first victim’, a perception that became a founding myth for post-war Austria. On 25 November 1945 the first parliament was elected, which resulted in an absolute majority for the conservative Austrian People’s Party (Österreichische Volkspartei, ÖVP). Through large-scale nationalizations of heavy industries, banks, and energy suppliers, and through Marshal Aid, the economy was soon on the path to recovery… Austrian State Treaty (15 May 1955) The treaty, signed by the Soviet Union, the USA, Britain, and France, formally recognized the second Austrian republic and agreed that occupation forces would withdraw within five months. Unlike in Germany, whose eastern half the Soviet Union had integrated into its Communist sphere of influence, the USSR agreed to vacate its Austrian zone of occupation, in return for reparation payments, and Austrian adherence to a strict policy of neutrality.» (
Palmowski, p.42-43).

« Accompanied by Anthony Eden, General Sir Hastings Ismay, his chief-of staff, and Field-Marshal Sir Alan Brooke, the C.I.G.S., the Prime Minister travelled via Naples, Cairo, and Simferopol’ and arrived in Moscow on the evening of October 9 [1944]. At 2200 hours, he and Eden were conducted to Stalin’s office. Stalin, accompanied by Molotov, was waiting for him. And in the absence of Averell Harriman [US ambassador in Moscow], the four men lost no time in making a preliminary survey of the world situation. Doubtless Harriman would not have objected to their decision to invite the Polish government to send a delegation to Moscow. But perhaps he would have thought that Churchill was unduly compromising the future as well as the U.S.A. if he had heard him tell Stalin: “Let us settle about our affairs in the Balkans. Your armies are in Roumania and Bulgaria. We have interests, missions, and agents there. Don’t let us get at cross-purposes in small ways. So far as Britain and Russia are concerned, how would it do for you to have ninety per cent predominance in Roumania, for us to have ninety per cent of the say in Greece, and go fifty-fifty about Yugoslavia ?” And even more so if he had seen Churchill make in writing a proposal which had never ben agreed by London and Washington. Churchill in fact, while his words were being translated, scribbled on a half sheet of paper:
      Russia……….90 %
      The others…...10%
      Great Britain...90 %
      (in accord with U.S.A.)
    Yugoslavia……..50-50 %
    Hungary………..50-50 %
      Russia……….75 %
      The others…...25%”
Stalin ticked the paper passed to him by Churchill, who wrote: “It was all settled in no more time than it takes to set down.”» (Bauer, 1979, p.586).

Poland: « On October 13, the Polish delegation of the government-in-exile, consisting of its Prime Minister, Stanislas Mikolajczyk, Professor Grabski, and Foreign Minister Tadeusz Romer started discussions with Stalin Molotov, Chuchill, Eden, and Harriman, who had been instructed to keep strictly to his rôle as observer. They intended to reach an agreement on two questions: firstly, the eastern frontier of Poland; and secondly, the formation of a unified Polish government, including the London government’s representatives and members of the Lublin “National Committee”. Although they expected to make some territorial sacrifices to the Soviet Union, Milolajczyk and his colleagues were aghast when they discovered that the Teheran agreement (which had been concluded behind their backs by the “Big Three”) had prescribed the Curzon Line as their country’s frontier; thus 48 per cent of Polish territory would be surrendered to the U.S.S.R. without the population involved being consulted about the transfer. The Polish prime minister’s protests against the acquiescence which was being demanded of him left Stalin cold and uncompromising. After this session, the British and Poles met. Churchill described to Mikolajczyk the advantage which would compensate Poland for the sacrifice he was calling upon her to make: “But think what you will get in exchange. You will have a country. I will see that a British ambassador is sent to you. And there will also be an ambassador from the United States, the greatest military power in the world… ” “If you accept the Curzon line, the United States will devote themselves most actively to the reconstruction of Poland and will doubtless give you large loans, perhaps even without your having to ask for them. We will help you too, but we will be poor after this war. You are obliged to accept the decision of the great powers.” Otherwise it would be the end of Poland… » (Bauer, id., p.587).

: « December 12, 1943. The Soviet Union signs with Czechoslovakia a treaty of friendship, of mutual assistance and of cooperation for the post-war period. Under the impression of the traumatism suffered at Munich, Beneš [President of Czechoslovakia 1935-8, 1945-8] has deployed the greatest efforts in relation to the Occidentals and to the USSR from the beginning of his exile, in order to secure the continuity of the State of Czechoslovakia. In October 1939, in fact, a Czechoslovak National Committee was formed in London. In July 1941, immediately after Germany attacked the USSR on 22 June, the Soviet ambassador in London, Maïski, advises Beneš of the USSR’s desire of an independent Czechoslovakia and refusal of meddling with her internal affairs. On July 18, 1941, Maïski signs with the Czechoslovak Foreign Minister, Jan Masaryk, son of the father, founder of the first Czechoslovak Republic Tomáš Masaryk, a treaty recognizing Czechoslovakia as an independent and sovereign country in her frontiers before Munich. The British and American governments recognize soon after the Czechoslovak government.» (Kaspi, 1980, p.390-391).

 « Obviously, in October 1944, Churchill and Eden no longer had any illusions about the future direction of Marshal Tito7s policy, in spite of the Anglo-American arms deliveries which had saved him from defeat and death. Moreover, in this division of spheres of influence, it was clear that Churchill had completely forgotten Albania, on which Greece had some claims.» (Bauer, id., p.586).

Kap. Thita lambda
: « An anonymous contributor, writing in the number of November 1724 of the Mercure de France, is of opinion that these letters are the abbreviation of the name Καθολικ
οῖ : the quatrain may announce the persecution of the Catholics.» (Brind’Amour, 1996, p.162).

Kap. Thita lambda dead, banished astray: The Catholics in the Eastern Europe shall be persecuted under the communist regime; « This method is based upon the writing system of the ancient Hebraic language, where the vowels are missing. We named this method “anagram by syncope or permutation of vowels” [Ionescu, 1976, p.144]. In the present case, it is a syncope of vowels:
Κ, Θ, Λ are the consonants that form the ironwork of the word ΚαΘοΛιΚ(ός, , òν) ‘catholic’. The last verse tells therefore the persecutions suffered by the Christians beyond the Iron Curtain (dead, banished astray). In general, the term “Catholic” is used for the Roman Church. Equally, the Church of the East or Orthodox is – by its proper title – “Catholic”. For, since the Schism of the East, there have been the two Churches: Greco-Catholic and Romano-Catholic. In order to underline the equal reality of the one and the other of the two Churches, issuing from the original Christianity, Nostradamus employs the Greek letters. Thus, the implication of the Greek Church is evident.» (Ionescu, 1976, p.606-607).

« The Second World War had for its prelude the Conference of Munich where the Great Powers at the moment decided the future of Czechoslovakia even without consulting her government and imposed their solution upon her, which widely opened the doors of the Danubian world to Hitler. The Second World War was finished by the application of the decisions made in the course of another international Conference, that of Yalta, where the new Great Powers, the USA, the UK and the USSR, decided in the same voluntary ignorance of the vows of the population to place the countries of Eastern Europe in the sphere of Soviet influence. Thus was born at Yalta this Eastern Europe as we understand it today in our political jargon, an Europe of the East, to which belongs the totality of the Danubian and Balkan States, Poland as well as a part of the former territory of the Reich that had been attributed to the USSR as occupation zone and became in 1949 German Democratic Republic. Thereafter, Eastern Europe was going to live under the shadow of Moscow.» (Bogdan, 1990, p.374-375);

« The attitude of the Communist power in regard to the religion and the Church was different according to the countries. In Bulgaria and Rumania, where the population in large majority was orthodox, the new power immediately made rally to it the leaders of the Church in playing with their traditional hate against Rome and at the same time with the necessity of unity around the Patriarchate of Moscow, entirely devoted to the Soviet State. The Orthodox Church of Serbia adopted from the start the same attitude of submission in regard to Tito’s regime. Everywhere, the recalcitrant elements of the Orthodox clergy were removed from their parishes with the complicity of the hierarchy, relegated into monasteries, even imprisoned. In Rumania, the suppression of the Uniate Church in 1948 scarcely seemed appreciated by the faithful and the clergy who continued clandestinely their activity in suffering often persecutions.» (Bogdan, 1990, p.438-439).

« In the Catholic countries, the situation showed different. The Catholic Church, by virtue of its ties with Rome and its centralized structure, constituted a considerable force, which, if it was not neutralized or at least not controlled by the State, risked being the point of rallying of the opposers against the regime. As early as 1945-1946, a number of priests and monks as well as remarkable personalities of the Catholic world had been arrested and condemned for “collaboration” and “anti-Soviet activities”, as it was the case in Yugoslavia with Mgr. Stepinac. The repeated public protestations of the Catholic Church against the blows to the religious liberty, against the encroachments of the temporal upon the spiritual, against the abuses of the regime, triggered off from the end of 1948 physical persecutions of a certain number of prelates. Tens of thousands of Hungarians who hurried to hear the sermons of the cardinal Mindszenty and hundreds of thousands of Poles who gathered at the Marian sanctuary of Czestochowa could not but confirm the Communist leaders in their idea of striking hard and sharp. The arrest of the cardinal Mindszenty on December 26, 1948, under the inculpation of complot against the Republic, of espionage and trade of money, his trial, in the course of which he appeared physically broken and avowed his “crimes” not without reticences, his condemnation to a life imprisonment, aroused an intense emotion in the country. In order to avoid the worst, the Hungarian episcopate made a concession, and on April 30, 1950, the Archbishop Grösz resigned himself to signing with the government an accord which guaranteed officially the liberty of cult and the grant of financial aid to the Church in exchange of the recognition of the Socialist State by the Church secured by way of oath of fidelity. It was in fact a market of dupes. A week after the conclusion of this compromise, the Hungarian government pronounced the dissolution of almost all of the religious Orders; more than 10,000 monks and nuns were dispersed, a large number of them confined in the labour camps. At the beginning of the next year, the Archbishop Grösz was in his turn arrested and condemned to 15 year imprisonment. In the same year in Czechslovakia, those of bishops who had not been arrested in 1950 were arrested in their turn and especially the archbishop of Prague, Mgr. Beran was apprehended on March 10, 1951. In Poland, in the same year, the police arrested the bishop of Kiekce Mgr. Kaczmarek and the former archbishop of Lvov, Mgr. Baziak. Also in the same year, all the Catholic bishops of Rumania were imprisoned in their turn. The high clergy was not the only victim of these physical persecutions. The low clergy was submitted everywhere to these torments of every kind, the prelates were arrested, the seminaries were closed.» (Bogdan, id., p.439-441).
