Introducing The Aliens

Did they sniff the air and pick up 'Omens' of what was to come?

The German Empire from 1871-1919/1945

AFTER 1871 - The German Empire had Risen as a Power in Europe

© Copyright May & June 2011 Wayne David Knoll -

After 1871 when Germany became an Empire, rather than a hoytchpoytch of Duchies, Reichs, Leagues, states and small city states.

The Deutsch Reich was declared at Versailles in 1871 after the Prussians took Paris subsequent to the French attack which resulted in the Franco-Prussian War of 1870.


Many young German men were raised to peaceable, to decency, to the grace of Christian belief, to values other than the mercenary expediencies of political violence which the zietgeist brought into play, put on the platter on offer as if they were the only power daydreams for more than fourty days and fourty nights of national temptation.


But Britain did not want Germany to rise, seeing the Prussian work-ethic as a threat to its global economic prosperity and dominance. The treaties of Protection, Tarriff and Taxation that England made with France and Russia, were designed to check and punish the German nation in advance, as if they had not already woken from, and could be drugged back into their lapsed centuries of productive peace - in their wine and beer, their poetry, their theology. their philosophy and their music. After 1870, all that was achieved by British attempt at playing world policeman against Germany, and to forward their own sometimes doubtful if not corrupt advantage, was too annoy Germany, to infuriate the Germans in their rising and pride, first to the point of anger, and then, to mushroom out of its darker shadow side, into the militating attitudes of chauvinism, added to which came the arming of itself with the ruthless politics and the progressively modern technologies of violence.


Many of the young men were nevertheless disgruntled with the way in which their German Empire was going. An aggrieved and militaristic social climate is anathema to some natures, as it is anathema to many beliefs. One thing many objected to was the compulsory military service brought in under the militaristic and Prussian mindset of the time after the Unification.

Many young men left Germany, or Austria, before it ever came to war.

A segment of those departing came to AUSTRALIA.

These were young men leaving Deutschland ANTI-WAR in three senses.

1. They were set Against the Militarism and the Martial Chauvinism of their time.

2. They left anti the War, before the War, realising early on what it was that was likely to come.

3. Avoiding Conscription: many did not want to participate as conscripts under a militaristic regime, and choose to flee, refugees from what they saw as the oppression on an attitudinal pressure-peerage. or what was often seen as the 'Prussianised' Compulsory Military Service.

Young men trickled out through the ports of Germany, Holland and Belgium. Great numbers more went via England. Some even crossed the Alps and embarked from port in France and Italy.

I am here concerned with those who came to AUSTRALIA, though my study is really only concentrated in the Melbourne region of Australia.

Two World Wars where Germany - and Germans - were the enemy - saw them permanently estranged from both their people and their heritage.

After the Unification of Germany under Prussia in 1870/1871, when Universal Conscription was brought in across all the States of Deutschland, the pattern of emigration from Germany to Australia changed. Instead of the earlier pattern of the majority of settlers arriving in families, young single men started to arrive, young men who were at odds with the increasing militarisation of their Fatherland, and also often at odds with the Rampant Chauvinisation of German Social Life.

GO! He said, and they went, some went very far away, and not where he expected. Count Otto Von Bismarck was credited with being the power that worked the Unification of Germany -and maybe, also, its 'BLOOD & IRON' Militarism.

Many of these young men were also avoiding military service, but the sacrifice they made for their principles was also to be distanced, even disenfranchised and disowned by their families in Germany.

And often, then persecuted as Enemy Aliens in Australia.

Count Erich Hermann Konrad KILLISCH von HORN (1867 - 1941)

One significant aristocrat among this tide of young German men coming out of the world's sea into Australia, was Erich Hermann Conrad Heinrich KILLISCH Von HORN, the son of Countess Marie Antonie nee WEIGEL, & Count Hermann Theodor Killisch Von HORN (1821-1886), one of the leading financial newspaper proprietors in Berlin, Brandenburg, Prüßen (Prussia).

Erich H. C. H. KILLISCH Von HORN was one of the four sons, of the five children in his family. He was the third son and fourth child of the family, and, as is often the way of younger sons, appears to have taken a viewpoint somewhat at odds with his elder brothers.

Erich Hermann Conrad Heinrich KILLISCH Von HORN

As a young man of the age of nineteen, the Berlin Newspaper Baron's son, Erich Hermann Conrad Heinrich Killisch von Horn arrived on the ship "SWANMORE" in Melbourne, Australia, in December 1888.

Typical of many an Anti-Militaristic Australian émigré from Prüßianised Deutschland, when he came to marry, it was to a non German girl. Erch Killisch von Horn was married to Hovell's Creek, Lara, Victorian-born, Maria IRWIN, daughter of John IRWIN from Braunton, Devonshire & Jindivick, and Susannah WARE from Chiddicott, Devonshire.

The Marriage took place at the St Paul's Church of England, Warragul, West Gippsland, on the 14th of May 1895

The KILLISCH von HORN children were:
1. Antonie Maria Susannah 1896-1897 Buln Buln;
2. Gertrude Elise Antoinette 1896-1994 Caulfield [Mrs EDGCUMBE)
3. Hermann Theodorburt Johann 1902 Buln Buln;
4. Irmgard Irene Marie 1904 Buln Buln (Mrs DARBY) died 1981 Warragul;
5. Erich Ernst Arnold b. 1907 Buln Buln - d. Malvern, Vic. 1977;
6. Arnold Royal Georg Killisch von Horn, b.1910 Buln Buln - 1916 Ringwood, Victoria.

The Story of Count Von HORN – - by Mal Darbys

Herman Conrad Erich Killisch VON HORN was born in Germany in 1865, the youngest of five children. His father owned the Berliner Zeitung newspaper and the family live din very comfortable circumstances. Erich matriculated at fifteen, but did not go on to university. He was unhappy with the militaristic atmosphere of his home country, so with the help of his aunt, he left Germany for Australia in 1886. He avoided military service, but his actions prevented him from being able to return to his home country until he was pardoned many years later.

While on the ship he met up with a Swiss doctor, David Trumpy, who taughthim some basic English. On arrival in Port Phillip he accompanied the Trumpy family to the area (Warragul) and he worked as a labourer in the Buln Buln district. In 1895 he married Maria IRWIN, the daughter of a well-known local family. He was naturalised in 1904. They had six children, but only four grew to adults.

In 1900, on the death of his father, Erich inherited the title and he received a fifth share of the paternal estate. He was able to purchase ‘Belmont’ in Brandy Creek Road, Buln Buln, extending the house and buying neighbouring property until he had about 300 acres. He lived the life of a gentleman, employing a Mr Walsh as manager. There was an extensive orchard and a flock of Merino sheep. He also raced greyhounds. He had flashy horses to pull his buggies and jinkers and later owned one of the first motorcars in the district, a Talbot. His children were educated by governesses at home, but the Count supported Buln Buln State school.

Erich became interested on civic affairs. He was a Warragul Shire Councillor from 1907~1915, serving his term as President in 1910~1911. He donated the council table and chairs during his term as president. He was involved with the formation of the Agricultural High School and donated implements to assist the farm. He served on the Committee of Management of the West Gippsland Hospital and was the fourth President. The Agricultural and Horticultural Societies also had his support; he was President from 1912~1915.

With the outbreak of World War 1, the money from Germany ceased and public feeling against Germans amounted to hysteria. He was abandoned by many of his friends in Warragul and resigned from or lost his various public offices. The family sold the farm and left the district, moving to Ringwood, and later Nunawading, where they bough orchards, which were later subdivided. His German origins were not as important there and he no longer feared internment.

Count Von Horn died of a stroke in 1940, possibly brought on by his distress at the outbreak of World War 2. In Warragul the flag of the Shire was flown at half-mast and the Editor of the Warragul Gazette, in his obituary, gave him full credit for his services to the town. - Referenced from - from Warragul/Drouin Historical Society Newsletters


For all his anti-war principles Hermann Conrad Heinrich Killisch von Horn found his lot was to be a farmer in Buln-Buln, near Drouin, Gippsland, and later an Orchardist near Ringwood, Victoria. While he was in West Gippsland he stood as a local councillor for the North Riding in Warragul, where he took his turn as Shire President. He was reknown for his great generosity in many public endowments. But, he lived saddened, even mortified, by the enmity and hardness of both sides in whole period of the Two World Wars, wars he lived to rue as a great and personal tragedy.

NOTE: The race hate and prejudice against the distant 'HUN' had been whipped up by the Australian Press and by little local demagogues to the point that it literally encouraged the enmity of ordinary Australians against their neighbouring Germanic-Australians to such an extent that even model citizens had, as it were, to once again 'prove themeselves' and watch every word, for every tiny hint of disloyalty would be seized on as 'Alien Sympathy', if not that, then, they would suspect 'Traitorious Intent.' So, many an Anti-militaristic German-Australian emigree found themselves having to give allegiance to the European and far-distant Britian, when they really intended their loyalty to the antipodean Australia under the British Crown.

This is instanced in the feeling of self-protective and self defensive necessity ahead of any oncoming persecution here evinced in the content of the letter Erich Killisch von Horn wrote and sent to THE ARGUS Newspaper in Melbourne, as published on Tuesday 18 May 1915: - [This was after the whipped up newspaper frenzy of reportage that saw the Germans as the meanest of baby-killers in Belgium.]

Sir - I ask permission to announce for the public information the fact that I am a British subject owing, neither allegiance nor duty to Germany, nor my other nation.

My friends know me to be what I am - as loyal to the throne of England as any of her subjects - but, for those who do not know me, may I shortly state the following facts.

For 30 years I have lived in this country during which time I have had no dealings beyond it, or with those who were not of it.

I was naturalised in 1889 and again upon the foundation of the Commonwealth.

I have endeavoured, in a practical way to show my sympathy for Belguim in her distress and have given my whole-hearted support as a loyal British subject to the efforts being made to render assistance to or furnished comforts for our Allies in the field.

I am neither more nor less than a loyal citizen of Australia and a loyal subject of England.
- Yours &.c (Erich) E KILLISCH VON HORN, Melbourne,
May 11 (1915).

P.S. - Will you kindly forward enclosed cheque- £10/10/-to the British Red Cross Society, which I take this opportunity of enclosing.

[Unfortunately, Von Horn's gift to British charity now comes across in some sense as a voluntary bribe to face off or avoid any oncoming accusation or persecution from the over-Britishified, the mad for Brittania and its Empire-Day drugged populace.

Although such principle action led him into great personal sacrifice and cultural mortification and loss, men like him acted for a noble sense of an integrity that shaped the peace of Australia. They effect may be far more significant that has yet been told. They left a lasting legacy of integrity and quiet noble purpose that has been hid from historical memory as from sight and from the Australian consciousnes too long

Erich Killisch Von Horn and his wife had six Australian children, at least two of whom died in infancy. He raised his children to be articulate, and with a mentality that was neither militaristic, nor cowardly. The Courage and nobility of his thought was passed on to his children and the following essay shows that he not only rejected the selfishness behind the militarism of his fatherland, he was willing eager to encourage a stand against it. This might be why his family in German cut him out of all acknowledgement.

This essay was published on page four of the Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian (Vic. : 1900-1940) on Saturday 15 April 1916. PRIZE ESSAYS.
The following essays, were awarded first prize in their respective classes at the recent Ringwood Show:

Because it is one of the first duties of man to defend his own home, and in times of national peril the evil which threatens the country as a whole threatens every part of it. True patriotism is based upon the love of all that makes home dear, with the addition of gratitude for all the gifts conferred upon us by membership of a great Empire. Because it is the duty of every man to do whatever he can to help on the cause of Right, and though we are no doubt biassed in favor of our own country, yet most of the civilized nations among the neutrals admit that this war has been deliberately forced on (us) by Germany for her own purposes, and that her professed ideals are selfish in the extreme. Since the victory of the Central Powers would mean the wide spread of such doctrines, no one who desires to see the triumph of Righteousness over Evil is justified in doing less than his utmost to secure that victory. Because the time has come when victory can only be won by opposing men in over-whelming masses to the enormous masses Germany can send into the field. Reinforcements are needed now and continuously, and each man is responsible for himself and all those he can influence. Because either failure or slackness in responding to the call for men implies that the blood hitherto shed will have been shed in vain. Another reason which should weigh with all who are eligible is that apparently the day of conscription is not far off. Those who will leave their country to demand - as a debt - what at present she accepts as a gift, are depriving them-selves of something which would be a great joy and an abiding honor to them. Moreover, in all likelihood the duty which is so repugnant to to them will ultimately have to be performed, shorn of all that would to-day lend grace and dignity to it. The reasons why those who can go should go are so many and so varied that we cannot enumerate a fraction of them. They are based both on the comparatively low ground of expediency, and on the higher and nobler ones of Gratitude, Patriotism, and Love of Right.

Erich Killisch von Horn died in the southern autumn of 1941 in Balaclava, Melbourne, in the thick of World War Two, and, for him, as for many German-Australians, the second period of sustained mortification and grief over Hitler's war. That was a war that saw the German nation of his birth become the evil and stereotypical enemy of the free world for much of the century to come.

Though Australian records clearly show that he was the son of Hermann Killisch Von Horn (1921-1886) & Marie Antonie WEIGEL the online Killisch von HORN family tree based in Germany have expunged this son from the familt, and left their noble Australian son and scion entirely out. In fact they have left him out of all mention. KILLISCH VON HORN FAMILY TREE The old KILLISCH VON HORN Park & Mausoleum

FROM the Gippsland Times, Victoria (1861-1954) Thursday 10 April 1941
PERSONAL: The death occurred last week, at Balaclava (Melbourne) of Count E. Killisch Von Horn, once well known in Warragul district and other parts of Gippsland. Before the world war of 1914-18 he was in regular receipt of very substantial monetary remittances from a wealthy estate in Germany, and was noted, locally and in various parts of the State for lavish generosity. For some time Count Von Horn was a representative of the north riding at the Warragul Shire Council table, and had a term as president. The handsome presidential chair, which now forms part of the council chamber furnishings, was one of his gifts to the municipality when its president. He was also a leading member of the Warragul Race Club, when it was a flourishing body - many times its president - and prominently associated with the agricultural society. One of his costly hobbies was coursing, and he always had running in his name tip-top greyhounds, with which he won many of the biggest State events, including a Victorian Derby and Waterloo Cup. His dogs were trained by the late Mr. Walsh, at Buln Buln. Whilst residing here, the Count was proprietor of the Belmont Estate, on the Brandy Creek Road, near Warragul.


Between 1875 and 1915 when these young German men immigrated, this was usually a one-way trip. Their act of leaving Germany was usually a one-way ticket, whether they knew it at the time or not, for the events of world war and attitude of the time meant that their self-banishment it soon became permanent. And before long they became Australians, often marrying girls of British or Celtic stock.

What they left to their Australian offspring was a Universal pacifistic attitude and an anti-war legacy, which is largely unremembered, quite uncelebrated, if it is not even, completely unknown, either in Australia, where they were very often persecuted as enemies, or in Germany, where they were very often seen as traitors.

Their often lonely heroism and solo action is quite at odds with the spirit of the War Memorials in Stone raised across Australia, just as is at odds with our annual Anzac or Remembrance days. The very often noble internationalism of these German-Australians was at odds with the rowdy flag waving of British Empire ra-ra and bias some Australians in the early twentieth century, just as it would be with the jingoistic Australian flag waving nationalism of the early 21st century. For they were very often soldiers not of war, but of peace; not of limited nationalism, but of global dignity and hope.

For these thousands of young emmigrant German-Australian men had already declared their desire to defeat the war, and their strong opposition to war, by voting with their whole beings to live on the other side of the world.

K. Wilhelm KNOLL, lifelong pacifist, primary producer, communitarian.

I know of this story in the first instance because my own great grandfather, Karl Wilhelm KNOLL (1870-1953) was just such an immigrant.

Wilhelm Knoll arrived in Port Melbourne, Australia in April 1893 on the steamer "KARLSRUHE" having come by way of the Suez after departing from the German Port of Bremen. He was then aged just 22, though the ship's manifest records his age as 30.

My reading of this blatant age discrepancy is that he deliberately raised his age on paper to avoid detection, to escape the scrutiny of likely Military Recruiters' Agents watching the ports for departees and refugees fleeing from their bullying edicts of control. At a guess, by 30 years of age a young German man would be presumed to have completed his military service, whereas at 22 or 23 he would presumably have enlisted and about to go into military camp - or else already well within its hold. - If this age feint was a lie on Knoll's part to be shed of what, to him, was an obnoxious militaristic culture, and so to shed himself of a chauvinistic and militarist Deutsch Reich Stadt, it would also be a mature canny ruse, a ruse made of dire necessity to escape from a miswrought and alientated culture of overbearing suspician and distrust. Also, it comes to be seen as exceptional, for it is the only known untruth or deceit that Wilhelm Knoll would ever be known to make.

When Wilhelm Knoll embarked from Bremerhaven, it was as one of only five passengers on what seems to have been primarily a cargo ship. All five passengers were single young men of an age between 20 and 30 - all young men of a type normally to found at that time doing their conscripted military training. So, it seems likely that Wilhelm Knoll and his fellow passengers were familiar, maybe even engaged with, a clandestine anti-conscription movement, as one that educated young men into the ways and the dangers of escaping the universal drafting into the Deutsche Reich Military could be found by those asking in sympathetic need. His loyalty at that time, as a southern German, was not likely to be with the Hohenzollern Emperors, who had been adopted into the Deutsche Reich, from their northern Prüßen (Prussia), but a loyalty to those closer at home. He came to live and the light of his mother's differing mentality that was conversant where he was born. He was born in 1870, and, so, before the German Empire came into existence, among the vineyards at Thalhausen, a tiny hamlet near Markgröningen, northwest of Stuttgart, in the crafty and inventive, the warmer and gentler Kingdom of Württemberg (Königreich Württemberg).

On disembarking in Port Melbourne Wilhelm Knoll went more or less immediately up to the Yarra Valley and took on work on the Dandenongs hinterland farms of George Parker, a pioneer at South Wandin. This was a district of permanent rivers, of hills and streams, with a backdrop of mountains, similar, uncannily alike to the homeland of the Neckar region of the South German Württemberg Knoll had just departed. It seems obvious today, when we can compare geographies so easily on the internet, that he did not find fault with the reality of that kind of stream and mountain farm-plantation physical landscape. It must have beed something of the mental and social landscape in Deutschland that was found wanting. For Wilhelm Knoll was a gregarious man whom people found to be good company. He was embraced into the family of his employer Parker, who sold him thirty acres of hs own good Silvan land, and was taught English by his employer's son-in law and neighbour, Vancouver Island-born Canadian, Ted Reeves. Knoll was married in 1897 to a young relative of his employer, Ada Jane Hollis, an Yarra-Valley-born girl whose family were the furthest-out South Wandin pioneers. The pioneer Hollis family came of a heritage of ancient farming folk who had become gentrified as yeoman and Oxfordshire landowners along the River Thames. In anticipation of his marriage Wilhelm Knoll wrote home to Germany in 1897, requesting the dispatch of the rest of his due and value in an inheritance, but after a fobbing-off and dismissive sob-story of a reply, wheren his brother uses the hurdle of his far-off Australian remoteness, and Wilhelm Knoll's own self-banishment from Deutschland as excuse enough to deny him his due, he never wrote again. He had no further contact with his family in the Circle of the Neckar Valley, and never returned to Germany. It is now known that back in Germany, his brother Jakob Knoll named a son Karl Wilhelm Knoll, as if to replace him.

By 1896 Wilhelm Knoll was a key player in his local community at South Wandin, which became Silvan, and he was a force in the rebuilding of the local Mechanics Hall after the first one was lost in the bushfires of 1898, and then, to the building of a district church at Burleigh, Silvan South, where there was formerly no place of worship. He was a man who gathered people and community together, both at home, and in the wider district where he became a respected pioneer.

When the Great Spring Snow of about 1903 destroyed the whole seasons raspberry crop in Wandin South, Knoll worked as navvy in a Goldmine in Campbells Creek where his brother-in-law, the New Zealand-born Engineer Albert Stewart, was the manager. Later Wilhelm Knoll supplimented his dirt-farm income by tendering for Lillydale Shire contracts for maintenance and repair of the infamously terrible roads, which were often reduce to deep-rutted tracks and quagmires. He used do all the work by hand. He would dig the rut-walls down with a shovel, and fill in potholes from a horse and dray.

The respect that he garnered by being a generous neighbour, churchman, friend and citizen, might have protected him somewhat from the persecution which he also encountered. That did not stop him being interviewed and interrogated and watched by the authorities, as evinced by the MP/16 file in his name held in the Australian National Archives, but no disloyalty, no accusation of his hateful detractors and persecutors could be made to stick. Anyway, he consistently worked with a passion to produce food of his orchards, his berry vines and vegetable crops, so that his uber-providence went to ameliorate the suspicion too often engendered in the violence that lurks in the shadows of a community living on war-footing.

But not one son of his went to their war, not one grandson of his, went to a second world war, in the aftermath of his early departure from a looming European horror.


When young Germans fled their fatherland as refugees from its shadowy face and from its hurtful side, the great majority of them showed a remarkable ability to let that past fall into silence. The Australian writer Dymphna Cusack wrote of this syndrome in her 1960 novel ‘Heat Wave in Berlin’ which though set after World War Two, speaks of a similar post-chauvinistic forgetting.: “Whatever was hidden by his (earlier) years before he stepped out on Australia soil, ceased to matter to all of them. Only when she pressed him would he tell her of his terrible days… soon her desire to know what lay behind him dwindled before his reluctance. Life (in Australia) was too full, and by the time Annie (their daughter) was born he was so completely one of them that she often forgot he wasn't Australian himself. He wanted to be Australian. He was naturalized at the earliest possible moment. Indeed, her (Australian) father used to say he was more Australian than many Australians. He gave himself completely to his new land…" - [pp. 10 - Dymphna Cusack ‘Heat Wave In Berlin’ 1961 Readers Book Club ]-

This forgetting, while helpful for the individuals at the time, does not do justice to the greater passion and truth of the full story. This silence needs now to be broken, and the reality of the courage and principle underpinning the human story of the Germanic exodus and expatriation needs to be exposed.

Wilhelm & Ada Knoll had five Australian children. He applied himself as a good servant to Australia in uber-hard work, in bountiful productivity. Likely, he did that also as a bastion of integrity in self defence against every potential dobber, whinger or seeker of enemies, so confounding even the known haters in his locality.

His noble train went out the year mine came, as he died in 1953, the year I was born. But his non-violent, non militaristic attitude was imbued through his descendants. He is buried with his wife Ada, in the district he pioneered and served, in Lilydale Cemetery. When he died it was the local Wandin Riding Councillor, Harold Parker, a man made entirely of English-Australian ears and cultural prejudices, a one time Lillydale Shire President, who nevertheless wrote and initiated the publication of a grand obituary of tribute to him in the Lilydale Express, wherein he praises Wilhelm, or, at least, an 'Englished' version of him as 'Bill Knoll' as a community visionary, calling him "the hardest worker ever to settle in the district."

My father remembers him pausing from the weeding of his offspring's farms which he undertook up to the day of his death, to ask in his Schwabian Württemberger German accent, probably with delight and mischief, certainly with some ironic cheek in his eye, "Hard at it, are you?"






Many a peace-loving, Anti-war German refugee and Australian émigré then suffered prejudice and persecution in Australia. But that was very often borne in sacrificial silence because they knew they would be likely to suffer a worse persecution on any return to Deutschland.

At twenty two years of age, after three and half years in Australia, Gustave Hermann TWISSELMANN wrote to the Government officer from Paddington, Sydney, NSW on the 7th March 1917...

" Dear Sir, Experiencing considerable difficulty here in obtaining definite information regulations (obligation and remaining rights & privileges) concerning before-the-war-Naturalized British subjects born in enemy country. I was finally referred to you, and beg leave to state my case in particular before you.

My Certificate of Naturalization (Vol 16, Page 15296) was issued to me on 27th February 1913.

I was born 6th February 1891 in Schleswig-Holstein, then part of Germany. Both my parents being born there when under Danish rule (my father is 68, and my mother 60 years of age). I may claim to be Danish.

I did not serve in the military because I was utterly opposed to German soldiering, and for that same reason I finally left Germany altogether before the age of Compulsory service. It will be a well-know fact that leaving there under those circumstances means being banished for life or severe punishment on return.

I took the oath of naturalization in the true sense of the word and therefore I beg you to give my case due consideration."

Respectfully yours, Gustave H Twisselmann,

C/- Mrs. E. Wolschky, 22 Stuart St, Paddington, NSW. -

P.S. My foreign name seems to be the sole preventative of my obtaining employment & I desire to change it if permitted under regulation. - G.H. Twisselmann


Abilities and Sensibilities -

In the letter above Johann Wilhelm CARL writes with a sense of finality - of the resolve and yet, the heartache, of the breach inherent in his youthful decision on emigrating:- "Alienating me for ever from obligations, privileges, &c., under German Rule." Fact is, sensitive young hearts were in a quandary; the minds that rejected the martial chauvinism and militarism of Germany, and made decisive moment for real change they could be sure of, did not revile from the breaking sense in their hearts, of depths which loved their fatherland and its goodly inheritance. They did not depart easily, and not without the tortured tearing of the bond-strings in the blood's double-binds, beyond reluctance.

Loyalties and Sensitivities -

- In the letter above, Otto Treichel writes that he left Deutschland for 'Obvious Reasons.' The interesting dilemma for the historian is that many of the German Emigrants to Australia did likewise, and never so much as stated the glaring truth of the 'Obvious' Anti-Militarism of their stance


The longing was both to evade neighbourly persecution, and to evade Authoritarian Internment, so, back then, German-Australians, if they wanted peace as well as freedom, had to live at the uttermost heights of a demanding conscientiousness.

This demanded conscientiousness made many German Australian settlers into model citizens, and asked them to step up to ways of being and relational places of real character and service to their people, whoever they were.


German-Australian émigrés who were Refugees and Aliens of German Militarism and Martial Chauvinism then too-often suffered the persecution and prejudice rising out of Martial Hardening and Chauvinism, or was it just the pettiness and hatred of their fellow non-German-Australians ?

Their Australian families often suffered the same hateful targeting.

Sorting Truth from the Hate and 'Fearful Chatter'

Many petty-minded letters were published in the newspapers. However, such as they were answered, and those representing the better British spirit -of magnanimous largesse- came out to silence the pettifloggers with the bigger-hearted truth of the universe. Such a one was F.S.G.

Otto Von BISMARCK and Adolph HITLER

In his Review of Jonatham Steinberg’s new biography: ‘Bismarck: A Life’ by Jonathan Steinberg (Oxford University Press, 2011) Stephen Loosley writes:

“The proclamation of the German Empire on January 18, 1871, took place at the Hall of Mirrors in the Palace of Versailles, once the symbol of imperial power in the recently defeated France of Napoleon III. Prussian armies had accomplished an extra-ordinary military victory. But the architect of the even greater triumph represented by the creation of the new German Reich was the Imperial Chancellor, Otto von Bismarck. …
… This biography is an outstanding feat of writing, skilfully weaving the personal and the political: the Prussian Junker culture with the pressing demands of economic modernisation; the strategic shifts in Europe in the late 19th century with the emerging aspirations of its diverse nationalities and ambitious citizens. Bismarck is correctly viewed as having embodied Realpolitik, the ruthless pursuit of goals with little or no regard of a set of principles…The one constant in Bismarck’s life was power and the accumulation and exercise of it…

… If Machiavelli was right in insisting that a wise man ought to take the example of a great man who excelled in achieving a great exploit, then Bismarck will continue to be worthy of study. Steinberg balances the achievements, however, by analysing the flaws: a rebuke from the Kaiser sends Bismarck to his sick bed; there are prolonged absences from Berlin at his estates; gluttony gradually erodes his health; mendacity is routine and bullying a constant.

Worse, the system of Prussian government bequeathed by Bismarck on Germany, with its weak Reichstag and omni-present Kaiser, glorification of martial values, anti-Semitism, and intolerance of dissidents, proved fragile indeed.

It is significant the Ian Kershaw, in his multi-volumed biography of Hitler, noted that the Nazi leader drew his inspiration and solace from Bismarck. Well he might have, for Bismarck’s Prussia carried not only the spark and kindling for 1914 but the embers and ashes of 1945.”
Stephen Loosley *

So, the bullying culture, the disregard of principle, disdain for matters of conscience, the intolerance, and, above all, the ruthless valorisation of power, was already part of the mental furniture of the Reich that swamped all the other Germanies after 1871.

By the time 1933 came, it was more or less too late for departure. The effective vote, was with ones being, and that was made by those who voluntarily went into exile. The conscience-driven sensitive Germans became the Germanic diaspora. Many early dissidents of fascism, and so, of Nazism, were those who left, who emigrated after 1871 and before 1914. They departed from the Deutsch Reich early on, when their sensitivities were breached as its martial bullying was first encountered.

[The emphasis is mine. * Review by Stephen Loosley – of Bismarck,: A Life - by Jonathon Steinberg (Oxford University Press, 2011) - from The Weekend Australian (Newspaper) Review Sept 17-18, 2011]
Count Otto Von Bismarck painted as an old man, and in all his fine regalia, yet exhibits a sad glory, as if seeing the wrath to come in his aged premonitions.

The Problem of 'GERMAN PRIDE' and the Germanic Diaspora

In fact, given the fact of the ongoing sense of shame which unfortunately encumbers Deutschland, and many things German, from a proper expression of goodly pride, - because of the consequences of its own sometimes inglorious past, - given to chauvinistic, and then, fascist militarism - then, the legacy of high good conscience and devout integrity than can be found among many of Deutschland's multitude of expatriate sons and daughters, might provide a way into full expression of a proper Germanic self-valuation, even to acceptance of a Universal 'Germanity' of noble and challenging consequence.

I am proud to have a German surname. I am a proud Australian with a German surname to be proud of the same as my great grandfather was. He never considered changing his ancient good German name, either by clandestine pseudonym, nor by official deed poll. Yet the surname's pronunciation was changed from the German to the English, the likely cause being the Knolls gregarious acceptance of the everyday parlance in the Australian settler community in all its Anglophone defaults, given to expressing things as their parochial English ears gave them a limited avenue of hearing.

But he was a proud and noble product of Germany. He never Anglicised his name, and his tombstone of 1953 in the Victorian, Australian, Lilydale Cemetery reads, not Charles William as many a record attempts, but: Karl Wilhelm Knoll.

The Germanic Diaspora are part of the German story, part of the gift that Germany is to the world.

The following German-Australians, concentrated for the most part in the State of Victoria, are a small part of that global gift.

BY UNITED FORCES: - But the German Eagles in Pugnacious Fighting mode alienated many out of their own nest, to fly off that crest.


© Copyright May & June 2011 Wayne David Knoll -

[Period: 1870 - 1920 ]

Here, I hope to include a list of the names of arrivees after 1870 and before 1919, some of whom will be leaving Deutschland (or the Österreich - the Austro-Hungarian Empire) in frustration, in protest, in rejection, of a current zeitgeist of chauvinistic militarism.

A militarisic chauvinism had entered the zeitgeist of Central Europe even by the 1870s, and was pushing to dominate the older cultures of the Deutsche realms. Many young men of that other culture departed.

I am keen to hear from the families of those listed here, following, and select and highlight some of them, to tell their stories.

- these men (and women) may be those who left the Germanic Theatre in protest at the Militarism of that time. I have selected names associated with the Melbourne region, Victoria, Australia.

AMBIT LISTs : Note that these Alphabetical Lists are something of an ambit collection, comprised of various sources, including the German-born who married in Victoria after 1870, those men known to have arrived after 1870, and others - found variously , via internet contact, or through newspaper articles, or Naturalisation Papers, so in this initial in-gathering ambit some few might be netted who do not belong.

Contact me if you can tell me more about your ancestor, your historic neighbour - or relative.

Ernst Friedrich Carl Wilhelm VON BASTIAN
Schloss Güstrow (the Castle of Güstrow)
Ernst Friedrich Wilhelm Carl Von Bastian was born in about 1846 in Güstrow, Stadt Güstrow, in the centre of the Grand Duchy of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Deutschland. He was the son of Friedrich Georg Von Bastian & Mathilde Geberne Von Levekow. Von Bastian's father 'Fritz' was an Advokat, a duly Authorised Lawyer of the Duchy of Mecklenburg-Schwerin. Ernst Von Bastian arrived in the Colony of Victoria some time before 1880 when he married Emilie Auguste Henriette Schleicher in Melbourne. Emilie was already an old hand in the Colony, for though born in Schreibersdorf, in Kreis Lauban, Silesia in 1855, she had arrived in Port Adelaide on the ship 'HELENE' as a babe in arms, and had so been raised as an Australian. Emilie's family included her remarkable uncle, her father's younger brother Johann Theophilus Schleicher, born 1816 in the same village in Lutheran Silesia, who had gone out as missionary to India, and who was ordained in 1843 into Holy Orders by the Anglican Bishop of Calcutta. Rev. Theophilus Schleicher later came to Australia and by 1857 he was the Ordained Clergyman of the Church of England at Bacchus Marsh, Victoria, and later made many voyages between Australia, the Far East, Germany and England. Then, from January 1877 to December 1885 the Rev.'John' Theophilus Schleicher was Rector at Castle Hill, Sydney, N.S.W.
Meanwhile, the Von Bastian family of Melbourne had three children, Mathilde born 1881, though where has proved difficult to know, but she died aged 62 in Campbellfield: Ernst Emil Von Bastian, born 1883 in Carlton: & Emilie Agnes Von Bastian, 1885 in Carlton, who, in 1918, married 'where-else-but-Richmond-born' Richmond Francis Sylvester Payne. She died in Essendon in 1957.
Count Ernst Von Bastian died at age 58, where they were then living, at 113 Keele Street Collingwood, and was buried on Saturday the 5th March 1904 in the nearby Melbourne General Cemetery. His widow, Emilie Henriette Auguste Von Bastian, was another nearly caught in the hateful grinding mills of war by the Official Australian Enmity, for she applied in her 'Aliens' Memorial' for Naturalisation, on the brink of the times, on the 12th of August 1914 living at 533 Station street, North Carlton. If she had been declared an Enemy Alien it would have been for her three months of life in Deutschland, for by then she had been an Australian for just shy of 60 years.
Ernst Von Bastian junior was an administrative employee of the Victorian Railways who married and lived with his family in a house that is recorded on the Australian Electoral Roll, umlaut and all, as being called 'Güstrow’ in Moama Road, East Malvern. He died at Güstrow, East Malvern in 1936.

Friedrich Wilhelm Robert BETHMANN - Prisoner of War Internee SA/ NSW

Gustav Adolf Heinrich 'Harry' BETHMANN -born Germany, married Julia Emily NEIL 1912
Gustav Adolf Heinrich 'Harry' BETHMANN lived and worked the three States of Australia, for two years in Adelaide, South Australia, then Melbourne, Victoria for over 21 years, in Hobart Tasmania for a year, and then again in Melbourne for the latter end of his days. He had first arrived in Australia on the Nordeutscher Lloyd steamer "KAISER WILHELM" in Adelaide on the 2nd of April in 1890, but was in Melbourne by 1893. He was naturalized after being in Australia, as he declared it with Germanic precision, for 24 years and 4 months, in the Victorian Capital, but imprecisely, or at least I should say, untimely, for it was then quite late in the day of war, on 12th of August 1914. He was then a married man, but with no children, working as a cook, and living at 345 William Street, West Melbourne. He was born 3 years before the Deutsche Reich came into existence, on 28 October 1868 at Westerhausen, in the Harz Mountains of the then Kingdom of Hannover. His status even after his Naturalisation was still probelematic, for he had to wrestle with red tape when he applied for the Old Age Pension in Melbourne in 1929.

Friedrich Karl Gottlieb BLÄSS (BLAESS) was born on the 24th November 1864 at Wernigerode, on the River Holtemme, near Halberstadt, in the Harz mountains in the Provinz of Sachsen-Anhalt, Deutschland. Wernigerode is famous for its Fachwerchhausen, the German half-timbered houses. But Blaess's native Harz in Sachsen-Anhalt was engulfed within a rationalised Deutsch Reich after January 1871. BLÄSS thereafter felt a call to serve in Christian ministry in more distant parts of the world. He then attended the Mission Schools at Berlin and went into training at the Hermmansburg Free Church Seminary at Ülzen, Hannover. In 1884 BLÄSS left the rationalized and Right-Royally Prussian-meddled univeral State Church for reasons of principle and conscience. He emigrated to the USA for the sole purpose to studying for the Ministry at the Seminary in Springfield, Illinois, USA. He was then 'Called' by the worldwide Hermannburg Free Church as an itinerant missionary to the Maoris, and went to New Zealand. He first served at Taranaki, New Zealand from 1893 until 1906 and famously, there baptized Hamuera Te Punga, who later became a Maori Lutheran Minister in Australia and New Zealand. BLÄSS ministered to several congregations in both the North and South Islands of New Zealand. BLÄSS then emigrated from New Zealand to arrive at the Port of Sydney, Australia on the ship 'S.S. WIMMERA' on the 14th July 1906. He went from Sydney to Lobethal, South Australia where he served as Pastor from 13th July to the 2nd October 1896. He arrived in Jindera, in the Riverina of New South Wales on the 4th October 1906 and served there as the clergyman Pastor till 1916. Friedrich Karl Gottlieb BLÄSS took the Oath for his Aliens Memorial for Naturalisation in Jindera on the 20th August 1909. He had formerly already been Naturalised as a British subject of New Zealand. From 1916 the BLÄSSes went back to South Australia He became the Assistant missionary to the Aborigines at Koonibba, on the Eyre Peninsula of South Australia, from 1916 till 1918, after which he became the Lutheran City missionary to Adelaide until his death in that city on the 20th May 1921. Friedrich Karl Gottlieb BLÄSS was married in the antipodes to Dorette BENSEMANN and the BLÄSS's had ten children, three sons and seven daughters born in the Antipodes. Those born in Jindera or at Albury, New South Wales (where they were registered) were: Mathilde M. A. BLÄSS 1907; Max F. A. BLÄSS 1909; Luise M. E. BLÄSS 1909; and the youngest, Helene Ida BLÄSS, born Jindera 25 April 1910, who served with Australian Forces after 1939 in World War Two.

Heinrich Josef Jakob BRODEL - born Germany, married Edith May HARKENSEE 1911
Heinrich Josef Jakob BRODEL, Cook, was born 4th Dezember 1883 at Dresden, Sachsen, Deutschland. Joined Melbourne Deutscher Krankenverein 1907-1908

Although Heinrich Josef Jakob BRODEL had the perspicacity and foresight to get himself Naturalised where he was living in 1912 at 64 Highbury Grove, Kew, Victoria, before the Great War, but, when it came, a series of mortifying years suffering rejection and persecution as an 'Enemy Alien' meant that he could not stay in work, times that saw his family falling in such abject poverty that he appealed to the authorities to be Interned. From his home in 5 Derby Place, Kew, he was surrendered as destitute, and Interned at the Prisoner-of War camp at Langwarrin on the 28th March 1917. If his trade was that of cook as stated on his Nauralisation he was probably put to regular employment in Internment. Brodel had arrived in the Port of Melbourne on the ship "GERA' on 22 October 1906, orginally departing from his native Dresden, Saxony. He was married to Melbourne-born Edith May Harkansee in 1911 and by the time War was under weigh they had three young Australian children. Now, in 1917 with her husband interned, Edith Brodel, could not provide for the family, so she also appealed to the authorities for her and the children to be Interned with her husband. The social and business climate then was antagonistic to any people of Germanic appearance of name, and no explanation, no exception was to be heard. Whether they had sympathy with the Militarist or not was of no account when nobody would listen. Only the desperate welfare of the Internment camp saved the Brodel family through the war.

Adolph Friedrich Wilhelm BÜTTNER - Charters Towers, QLD
Friedrich Wilhelm Adolph BÜTTNER was born in about 1855 in Messingwerk, Brandenburg, Deutschland. -Robert T writes: ' "Messingwerk" is German for "brass factory", and that's exactly what was there and it included housing for the workers and their families. Messingwerk became part of the city of Finow. Finow in turn became part of the city of Eberswalde in 1970. So today, Finow with Messingwerk is a section of Eberswalde. Eberswalde is located about 30 miles northeast of Berlin. The administrative district (in German: Kreis) in which Eberswalde is located is today called simply Barnim.' Adolph BÜTTNER first took the Oath of his Alien's Memorial to be Naturalized when in business as a Storekeeper, at the age of 26, in Townsville, Queensland on the 27th April 1882. By then Adolph BÜTTNER was married, having wed Elise Sophie Friedericke Auguste LISTER in Queensland in 1879. Their Queensland-born children were: Elisabetha and Helene Emma Berta 'Lina' 1879-1880; Adolph Rudolph Wilhelm 1882-1961; - Adolph 1884-1884; James Friedrich Paul 1885; Christian Alexander Adolph 1886- 1964; and Friedrich Herbert Alexander BÜTTNER 1889. Come the war, though he had been resident for over forty years and Naturalised for over 35 years BÜTTNER was accused of being an enemy agent and put under scrutiny by the official investigation Branch of the Commonwealth Attorney General's Department during a zeitgeist of active and persecutive enmity against German-Australians around the time of the maelstrom of the 'not-so Great War'. Again, on April 28th 1922, the report came down to Brisbane and beyond, from a Constable No.822, J. W. Partridge, of Charters Towers, who reported that he "made careful and discreet inquiries into the character of the above-named person, who has resided at Charters Towers for many years.' 'Applicant is of good character and has never been guilty of disloyalty or of making disloyal utterances. Senior Sargeant S. O'Brien confirms this statement." BÜTTNER was then working as a Miner, living at Lister Street, Charters Towers, named for his wife's family in acknowledgement of their pioneering enterprise. Adolph BÜTTNER was re-Naturalised at that time at the age of 66 years. Friedrich Wilhelm Adolph BÜTTNER died during the Second world War in Dee Why, Manly, Sydney, New South Wales in 1941 aged 85 years. His wife predeceased him, dying in Manly, NSW in 1936.

Johann Albert BÜTTNER - born 10th Oktober 1880 at Tirschtiegel, Posen, in what had been Prussian territories before the Unification of Deutschland and now a part of western Poland) later residing in the Finsterwalde, in Brandenburg, Germany. Johann Albert BÜTTNER emigrated out of the Deutsch reich per the steamship "S.S.VARTZIN" arriving at the Port of Brisbane, Queensland in June 1906. On disembarking he went to Gramzow ROad, near Beenleigh, Queensland for three years, and then up the coast beyond Bundeburg to Baffle Creek, were he had opportunities to ply his occupation as an Engine Driver for the Baffle Creek Sugar Mills. After just six years in Australia, and precipitously close to brink of open war, as if well and truly aware of that his status in an Australia caught in the world situation was going to be a bomb, he went from his sugar-refining residence in Baffle Creek, north of Bundaberg, Queensland and swore the Oath of his Aliens memorial to be Naturalised on the 11th March 1913 in the town of Bundaberg, Queensland, Australia. Though obviously an competent and valuable trained worker and an able breadwinner, he was then unmarried. And, maybe his life and status remained lonely and single, as it did for many German-Australian men, especially those arriving late into the gathering enmity towards the war, because of the current of hostility and prejudice that saw an enemy rather than the man. Johann Albert BÜTTNER died in 1963 in Queensland, Australia, aged 82 years.

Paul Emil BÜTTNER was born on the 1st June 1872 at Zauckerode, a mining pit town near Dresden, Sachsen (Saxony), Deutschland, just one year or so after his homeland in Saxony was bereft of its independent status in the great German Unification. BÜTTNER emigrated out of the Deutsch Reich per the ship 'R.M.S.OPHIR' arriving at Port Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, on the 23rd July 1896. On disembarkation Paul Emil BÜTTNER soon went to Western Australia, working as a butcher and residing in Perth for ten years, at Northam for two years, then settling at Bunbury WA, when he had been working as a Butcher for twelve years by the 25th May 1920. His full report give his description as being blue eyed, fair haired, five feet four and a half inches in height and then aged 49 years. he was then still single. He lived through the hostility of two world wars where his people and his homeland were very often viewed with enmity and persecution. Paul Emil BÜTTNER died in Bunbury in the Wellington district of Western Australia in 1957 at the age of 85 years.
