Auschwitz: myths and facts
Auschwitz: myths and facts
Anonim

Who was really rotten in fascist concentration camps? Russians. It was only for the Russians that they posted warnings that “the Russians who take water here will be shot.” ​​With the occupied French, for example, the Nazis were much more correct.

Where did Europeans get their hatred for Russians, for Russia? Because we are different. Our dictionary contains the word "conscience", but Western Europeans do not have it.

Only we will not go into metaphysics, but put facts: photographs of Auschwitz. And let's start with a group photo of emaciated Jewish prisoners released from a concentration camp.

Well, and the fact that this whole disgusting Holocaust story is everywhere accompanied by lies, anyone can be convinced of this for himself. To be sure: watch the change of official memorial plaques at the entrance to the Auschwitz Museum! After all, at first it was absolutely accurate, in the judicial order, in the international, besides, it was reliably found out that 4 million people died in Auschwitz.

And two years ago, Polish historians also reliably calculated that the deaths in Auschwitz were not 4 million, but 1 million (second line of the list, left column).

Image

We translate the table heading from Polish: "Estimates of the number of victims in the main German death camps on Polish soil during the war."

Is it possible to believe the new figure? And why is it possible for her, but the previous, official one, is not allowed? And before that, somewhere in 1980, the commemorative plaque, which is in the photo on the left, was changed to another with a figure of 2 million dead.

Image

Of course, one million is a terrible figure. And the fascists are notorious villains, like the Americans who bombed Vietnam or the racist Jewish usurers. But we will not drown in emotions, but try to soberly assess and understand: if the so-called. the Holocaust is the death of 6 million Jews, then it was calculated long before 1980, i.e. before the change of the plate in Auschwitz. And even more so before the calculations of the Polish historians of our century.

So why is the figure of 6 million not adjusted depending on new, updated and more truthful data ??? Agree, 4 million and 1 million, 90% of whom are supposedly Jews - a big difference!

But no, they talk to us about the mythical 6 million absolutely regardless of the facts. That is why we declared that all Holocaust stories are blatant and blatantly blatant lies. A lie that cannot withstand the use of even the rudiments of common sense.

Auschwitz: myths and facts

Image

Almost everyone has heard of Auschwitz (in the West, Auschwitz is called Auschwitz - trans.), The German concentration camp of World War II, where masses of prisoners - mostly Jews - were allegedly exterminated in gas chambers. Auschwitz is widely believed to be the worst Nazi extermination center. However, the camp's terrible reputation is not true to the facts.

Scientists disagree with the Holocaust story

To the surprise of many, more and more historians and engineers are questioning the generally accepted history of Auschwitz. These "revisionist" scholars do not deny that large numbers of Jews were deported to this camp, or that many died there, especially from typhus and other diseases. However, the compelling evidence they provide proves that Auschwitz was not a center of extermination and that the stories of massacres in the "gas chambers" are a myth.

Image

Auschwitz camps

The Auschwitz camp complex was established in 1940 in the central-southern part of Poland. Many Jews were deported there between 1942 and mid-1944.

The main camp was known as Auschwitz I.Birkenau or Auschwitz II was supposedly the main extermination center, and Monowitz or Auschwitz III was a large industrial center for the production of gasoline from coal. In addition, they were adjacent to dozens of smaller camps that worked for the military economy.

Four million victims?

At the post-war Nuremberg Tribunal, the Allies claimed that the Germans massacred four million people at Auschwitz. This figure, invented by the Soviet communists, was accepted uncritically for many years. For example, she has appeared frequently in major American newspapers and magazines. [one]

No serious historian today, not even those who generally accept the extermination story, believes this figure.

Israeli Holocaust historian Yehuda Bauer said in 1989 that it was time to finally admit that the famous figure of four million was a notorious myth. In July 1990, the Auschwitz State Museum in Poland, together with the Israeli Holocaust Center Yad Vashem, suddenly announced that in all, probably one million people (Jews and non-Jews) had died there.

None of these institutions said how many of them were actually killed, just as the estimated number of people allegedly killed by gases was not named. [2] Prominent Holocaust historian Gerald Reitlinger estimates that approximately 700,000 Jews died at Auschwitz.

Recently, Holocaust historian Jean-Claude Pressac estimated that around 800,000 people died at Auschwitz, of whom 630,000 were Jews. Although even these downward-corrected figures continue to be incorrect, they show that the history of Auschwitz has undergone tremendous changes over time.

Ridiculous stories

At one time it was argued in the most serious way that Jews were systematically electrocuted at Auschwitz. American newspapers, citing the testimony of a Soviet eyewitness from the liberated Auschwitz, told their readers in February 1945 that the methodical Germans killed Jews there using "an electric conveyor belt that could simultaneously electrocute hundreds of people and then transport them to ovens. burned almost instantly, producing fertilizer for the nearby cabbage fields. " [4]

In addition, at the Nuremberg Tribunal, US Chief Prosecutor Robert Jackson argued that the Germans used "a recently invented device to instantly" vaporize "20,000 Jews in Auschwitz without leaving a trace of them." [5] Today, no prominent historian takes such fictional stories seriously.

Image

Hess's "confession"

The key Holocaust document is the "confession" of the former Auschwitz commandant Rudolf Hess on April 5, 1946, presented by the US prosecution at the main Nuremberg trial. [6]

While it is still widely cited as clear evidence that Auschwitz was an extermination camp, it was actually a false claim, obtained through torture.

Many years after the war, British military intelligence officer Bernard Clarke recounted how he and five other British soldiers tortured the former commandant, seeking a "confession" from him. Hess himself explained his torment in the following words: “Yes, of course, I signed a statement that I killed 2.5 million Jews., whether it is true or not. " [7]

Even historians who generally accept the Holocaust extermination story today admit that many of Hess's "sworn" statements are simply lies. For this reason alone, not a single serious historian and scientist today claims that 2, 5 or 3 million people died in Auschwitz.

In addition, Hess's "affidavit" states that Jews were exterminated by gas in the summer of 1941 in three other camps: Belsec, Treblinka and Wolsek.The Wolseck camp mentioned by Hess is a complete fiction.

Such a camp has never existed and its name is now not mentioned in the Holocaust literature. Moreover, those who believe in the Holocaust legend now claim that the gassing of Jews began in Auschwitz, Treblinka and Belsec only in 1942.

Image

Lack of documentary evidence

After the war, the Allies confiscated many thousands of classified German documents relating to Auschwitz. None of them mentions a plan or program of extermination. When it comes to facts, the history of extermination cannot be reconciled with documentary evidence.

Disabled Jewish Prisoners

Image

It is often claimed that all Jews who were unable to work were immediately killed at Auschwitz. It is alleged that old, young, sick or weakened Jews were gassed immediately upon arrival, and those who were temporarily left to live were exhausted to death by labor.

However, in fact the evidence shows that a very large percentage of Jewish prisoners were disabled and nevertheless not killed. For example, in a telegram dated September 4, 1943, the head of the Labor Department of the Main Economic and Administrative Directorate of the SS (WVHA) reported that of the 25,000 Jewish prisoners in Auschwitz, only 3,581 were able to work, and the rest of the Jewish prisoners were approximately 21,500 or about 86% were disabled. [eight]

This was also confirmed in a secret report on "security measures at Auschwitz" dated April 5, 1944, from the Chief of the SS concentration camp system, Oswald Pohl, sent to the Head of the SS, Heinrich Himmler. Paul reported that there were 67,000 prisoners in the entire Auschwitz camp complex, of whom 18,000 were hospitalized or disabled. In the Auschwitz II camp (Birkenau), supposedly the main extermination center, there were 36,000 prisoners, mostly women, of whom "approximately 15,000 were disabled." [9]

Image

These two documents are simply not consistent with the history of the extermination at Auschwitz.

Evidence shows that Auschwitz-Birkenau was established primarily as a camp for disabled Jews, including the sick and old, and those awaiting departure to other camps. This is the conclusion reached by Dr. Arthur Butz of Northwestern University, who also says it was responsible for the unusually high death rate there. [10]

Princeton University history professor Arno Mayer, who is Jewish, admits in a recent book on the "Final Solution" that more Jews died at Auschwitz from typhus and other "natural" causes than were executed. [eleven]

Image

Anne frank

Probably the most famous prisoner of Auschwitz was Anne Frank, who became famous throughout the world for her famous diary. However, few people know that thousands of Jews, including Anna and her father Otto Frank, "survived" Auschwitz.

This 15-year-old girl and her father were deported from Holland to Auschwitz in September 1944. A few weeks later, due to the advance of the Soviet army, Anna, along with many other Jews, was evacuated to the Bergen-Belsen camp, where she died of typhus in March 1945.

Her father contracted typhus at Auschwitz and was referred to a camp hospital for treatment. He was one of thousands of sick and weakened Jews left there by the Germans when they left the camp in January 1945, shortly before it was captured by Soviet troops. He died in Switzerland in 1980.

If the Germans had planned to kill Anne Frank and her father, they would not have survived Auschwitz. Their fate, though tragic, is inconsistent with the extermination story.

Allied propaganda

The Auschwitz gassing stories are largely based on the oral statements of former Jewish prisoners who themselves have not personally seen evidence of extermination. Their claims are understandable, since rumors of gas killing at Auschwitz were widespread.

Allied planes dropped a huge number of leaflets in Polish and German on Auschwitz and the surrounding areas, claiming that people were being gassed in this camp. The Auschwitz gas story, which was an important part of the Allied war propaganda, was also broadcast on the radio to Europe. [12]

Survivor testimony

Former prisoners confirmed that they saw no evidence of extermination at Auschwitz.

Austrian Maria Fanhervaarden testified before the Toronto District Court in March 1988 about her stay in Auschwitz. She was interned at Auschwitz-Birkenau in 1942 for having sex with a Polish prisoner. As she was being taken to the camp by train, a gypsy woman told her and the others that they would all be gassed at Auschwitz.

Upon arrival, Maria and the other women were told to undress and walk into a spacious concrete room without windows and take a shower. Horrified, the women thought they were going to be killed. However, instead of gas, water came from the shower heads.

Maria confirmed that Auschwitz was not a resort. She witnessed the death of many prisoners from diseases, especially from typhus, some even committed suicide. But she saw no evidence of any massacre, or gassing, or evidence of any kind of extermination plan. [thirteen]

A Jewish woman named Marika Frank arrived in Auschwitz-Birkenau from Hungary in July 1944, when an estimated 25,000 Jews were gassed and burned daily. She also testified after the war that she had not seen or heard anything about the "gas chambers" while she was there. She heard the "gas" stories only later. [14]

Image

Released prisoners

Auschwitz prisoners who had served their sentences were released and returned to their home countries. If Auschwitz were in fact a secret extermination center, then the Germans, of course, would not have released prisoners who "knew" what was happening in the camp. [15]

Himmler orders to reduce mortality

In response to the increase in deaths among prisoners as a result of disease, especially from typhus, the German authorities in charge of the camps have taken tough measures to combat the disease.

The head of the SS Camp Administration sent a directive dated 28 December 1942 to Auschwitz and other concentration camps.

It sharply criticized the high mortality rate of prisoners due to disease and ordered that "camp doctors should use every means at their disposal to reduce the death rate in the camps." Moreover, the directive provided that:

Camp doctors should check the nutrition of prisoners more often than in the past and, together with the administration, make recommendations to the camp commandants … Camp doctors should ensure that working conditions and workplaces are improved as much as possible.

Finally, the directive stressed that "The Reichsfuehrer SS [Heinrich Himmler] ordered that the death rate must be absolutely reduced." [sixteen]

Internal regulations of German camps

The official rules of the internal order of the German camps clearly show that Auschwitz was not a center of extermination. These rules provided the following provisions: [17]

Those arriving at the camp should undergo a thorough medical examination, and if in doubt [about their health] should be sent to quarantine for observation.

Prisoners complaining of discomfort must be examined by the camp doctor on the same day. If necessary, the doctor must admit the prisoner to a hospital for professional treatment.

The camp doctor must regularly inspect the kitchen to check the cooking and the quality of the food. Any deficiencies noted should be reported to the camp commandant.

Particular attention should be paid to the treatment of casualties in accidents so as not to impair the productivity of prisoners.

Prisoners to be released and transferred must first be examined by a camp doctor.

Aerial photography

In 1979, the CIA released detailed photographs of Auschwitz-Birkenau taken over several days during aerial reconnaissance in 1944 (at the height of the alleged extermination there). These photographs do not reveal any traces of either the mountains of corpses, or the smoking chimneys of crematoria, or crowds of Jews awaiting death - all that allegedly happened there.

If Auschwitz were the extermination center, as it was claimed, then all these signs of extermination would be clearly visible in the photographs. [eighteen]

Absurd claims related to cremation

Cremation specialists confirmed that thousands of corpses could not be cremated daily at Auschwitz during the spring and summer of 1944, as is commonly claimed.

For example, Ivan Lagas, director of a large crematorium in Calgary, Canada, testified in court in April 1988 that the stories of cremation at Auschwitz were technically impossible. The claim that 10,000 or even 20,000 corpses were burned daily at Auschwitz in crematoria and open mines in the summer of 1944 is simply "absurd" and "completely unrealistic," he swore. [nineteen]

Gas chamber specialist refutes extermination story

Fred Leuchter, a leading American gas chamber expert and engineer from Boston, carefully examined the alleged "gas chambers" in Poland and concluded that the story of the gas killing at Auschwitz was absurd and technically impossible.

Leuchter is one of the foremost specialists in the design and installation of gas chambers used in the United States to execute convicted criminals. For example, he designed gas chambers for the Missouri State Penitentiary.

In February 1988, he carried out a detailed onsite survey in Poland of the "gas chambers" at Auschwitz, Birkenau and Majdanek, which were still intact or only partially destroyed. In his affidavit in a Toronto City court and in his technical report, Leichter detailed every aspect of his research.

He stated that he had come to the convincing conclusion that the alleged gas installations could not have been used to kill people. Among other things, he pointed out that the so-called "gas chambers" were not tightly closed or ventilated and would inevitably poison the German camp personnel if these "gas chambers" were used to kill people. [twenty]

Dr. William B. Lindsay, a research chemist with 33 years at the DuPont Corporation, also testified in court in 1985 that the stories of gassing at Auschwitz were technically impossible.

On the basis of a thorough site survey of the "gas chambers" at Auschwitz, Birkenau and Majdanek, and based on his professional experience and knowledge, he stated: “I have come to the conclusion that no one was killed in this way with Cyclone B (hydrogen cyanide gas) deliberately or intentionally. I think it is absolutely impossible. " [21]

Conclusion

The story of the extermination of people at Auschwitz was the product of war propaganda. More than 40 years after the end of World War II, it is necessary to take a more objective look at this chapter of history, which causes such conflicting opinions. The Auschwitz legend is at the heart of the Holocaust story. If no one systematically killed hundreds of thousands of Jews there, as it is claimed, this means that one of the biggest myths of our time has collapsed.

The artificial maintenance of the hatred and emotions of the past prevents the achievement of true reconciliation and lasting peace. Revisionism promotes the development of historical consciousness and international understanding. That is why the work of the Institute for History Revision is so important and deserves your support.
