Léon Degrelle

(June 15,1906-March 31,1994)

Walloon Belgian politician, who founded Rexism and later led Walloon Waffen SS.

Upon reaching the Eastern Front he was not familiar with any weapon, but before his return to Germany he had 75 hand-to-hand kills.

He received the Ritterkreuz (Knights Cross) directly from Hitler's hands. I has been said that Hitler told him "if I had a son, I wish he'd resemble you". He was later awarded the oakleaves. Before reaching the Eastern Front he was not even familiar with a weapon, but before his return to Germany he had 75 hand-to-hand kills.

Rex Party

In the Depression-era 1936 Belgian legislative election, the Rexists garnered over 30 per cent of the popular vote in the French-speaking province of Luxembourg, compared to 9 per cent in equally French-speaking Hainaut. Rexism soon began to ally itself with the interests of Nazi Germany and to incorporate Nazi-style antisemitism into its platform after Adolf Hitler's rise to power, and got financial support from German interests, while ties to the Roman Catholic Church were increasingly cut off one-sidedly by the Belgian bishops. Some former Rexists went into the underground resistance against Nazi Germany, after they had come to see the Nazis' somewhat anticlerical and very anti-Semitic policies enforced in occupied Belgium. Most Rexists, however, proudly supported the occupiers and assisted Nazi Germany in its endeavors wherever they could.
