Dachau according to John F. Floyd in the Gadsden Times

Filed under: Dachau, Germany, Holocaust, TV shows, World War II — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 2:26 pm

Last night I read a commentary entitled “Could the Holocaust happen again?” written by John F. Floyd in the Gadsden Times and I was very upset about it.  This morning I was still bothered about this article.

Almost everything in John F. Floyd’s article is wrong.  You can read the whole article here. At first, I assumed that Gadsden was a city in Scotland or some place where people would not be expected to know anything about Dachau or the Holocaust, but it turns out that Gadsden is actually in Alabama in the good old USA.  Mr. Floyd began his article by writing that he got his information for his article from the History Channel.

Mr. Floyd wrote, regarding what he heard on the History Channel:

“One narrative showed the Americans advancing at a fast pace in Germany, when all of a sudden the advance came to a dead stop. The reason for this sudden termination of the advancement was not German resistance, but a German village called Dachau.”

The photo below shows what a nice village Dachau was. When the Americans arrived, every house was flying a white flag of surrender.

Dachau was a beautiful village of 13,000 people in 1945

The troops had to stop in the village of Dachau because the bridge across the river had been blown up by the Germans, not because the village was some sinister place.

This was followed by this quote from Mr. Floyd’s article:

“When American officers observed the gaunt, emaciated, starving and dying members of the human race, they called an immediate halt to the advancing U.S. forces and locked the gates to the prison. They immediately went into the German town of Dachau and made all town officials assemble at the concentration camp and witness the horrible conditions American troops had found.”

Why did the Americans lock the gates at Dachau?  The Americans were the “liberators” and liberators usually liberate or turn the prisoners loose.  Mr. Floyd didn’t mention any reason for locking the gates, probably because the History Channel didn’t address this issue.  The reason the gates were locked at Dachau was to keep the TYPHUS epidemic at the camp from spreading throughout Germany to kill both Germans and Americans.   During World War I, there were 4 million deaths from typhus, and that was just in Poland.  There were 20 million deaths from influenza in World War I.  The American liberators immediately recognized that it would be difficult to control an epidemic in war time, so the first thing they did was to lock the prisoners inside the camp.

So why didn’t John F. Floyd mention the typhus epidemic?

When I went to Journalism School, we were taught that there are only three rules of Journalism:

1. Accuracy  2 Accuracy  3. Accuracy

Those rules are now long gone.  Journalists now choose a side (left wing liberal or right wing conservative) and write propaganda for their side.  The  concept of telling both sides of a story and reporting accurately is completely unknown in today’s news.

Here is another quote from Mr. Floyd’s article:

There had been rumors of atrocities by the Germans in concentration camps, but what faced the Americans was reality, a reality so horrible, that even today it defies description. It was the German concentration camp called Dachau.

O.K. the “reality” defied description.  This could be interpreted that the “reality” was that the atrocities at Dachau were really committed by the American liberators.  Why didn’t John F. Floyd mention the Dachau massacre in which American soldiers killed the Waffen-SS soldiers who had surrendered?

Guards in Tower B were killed after they surrendered

German soldiers were herded into a box car and killed after they surrendered the Dachau camp

Wounded Wehrmacht soldiers were dragged out of a hospital at Dachau and shot while they had their hands in the air

John F. Floyd wrote that the History Channel documentary “hit home” because he and his wife had visited Dachau in 1980 and his wife had previously seen the camp in 1956 when Dachau was a Displaced Persons camp for ethnic Germans who had been expelled from Czechoslovakia. In his defense, Mr. Floyd would not have learned about the killing of the German soldiers who had surrendered at Dachau on his visit to Dachau in 1980 because this was still a closely guarded secret and the one-sided propaganda TV show called the History Channel would not have mentioned it.

In his article, John F. Floyd wrote the following:

Connie and I walked where so many people of the Jewish faith, gypsies, Ukrainians, homosexuals and anyone else the German Third Reich decided was unfit to live had walked to certain death.

So the “German Third Reich” decided that Ukrainians were “unfit to live”?  The Ukraine was in the Soviet Union back then and millions of Ukrainians were deliberately starved to death by the Soviets.  I didn’t know the real story, as told on the History Channel, that the Ukrainians were really “walked to certain death” at Dachau.  The homosexuals were sent to Dachau for at least 6 months of rehabilitation after they had served two sentences for breaking the law against homosexuality which had been on the books since 1871 (Paragraph 175).  The homosexuals were not sent to Dachau for “certain death.”  Gypsies were sent to Dachau only if they broke the law that called for everyone to have a permanent address or if they refused to work; they were not sent to Dachau because the German Third Reich decided they were unfit to live.

Another quote from John F. Floyd:

“Paths led to the gas chambers where the Jewish population was told they were going to the showers to be de-loused, but the showerheads spewed poison gas.”

Dachau gas chamber

As the photo above shows, all the showerheads at Dachau, except one, have been stolen as souvenirs and one can look into the holes and see that the showerheads were not connected to anything.

In 1980, the Dachau Memorial site was telling people that the Jews were killed at Dachau with poison gas that spewed from the showerheads?  What about the sign in the gas chamber which said that the gas chamber was never used?  I thought that the sign was there in 1980, but I could be wrong.   How did the guides explain how pellets “spewed” through the tiny holes in the showerheads?  How did the tour guides explain the bins on the east wall in 1980?

Dachau tour guides tell visitors that gas pellets were poured into the gas chamber through these bins on the east wall of the  gas chamber building

Another quote from John F. Floyd:

A footpath led to the hanging room where men, women and children took their last steps.

What “hanging room” is he talking about?  I was at Dachau in 1997 and there was no “hanging room.”  I returned in 2001 and again in 2003 and 2007, but I did not see a “hanging room.”

The prosecution did not mention that women and children were hanged at Dachau in the proceedings of the American Military Tribunal at Dachau.  Mr. Floyd does not give any sources, other than the History Channel documentary and his  visit to Dachau in 1980.

In his article, Mr. Floyd did mention that his wife, Connie,  “was at Dachau in 1956 and she said many awful reminders of the Holocaust no longer were there, such as lampshades made of human skin, walking canes made of the femurs from the dead, mountains of shoes that belonged to victims of the Germans and piles of teeth from which the gold had been extracted.”

So all these things were being shown in the first Dachau museum in 1956?  No wonder the Bavarian government demanded that the first museum be taken down.

Mr. Floyd wrote:

The television program then showed Dachau townspeople, at the American military’s insistence, loading the dead onto vehicles and stacking the bodies like cordwood. German men were dressed in coats and ties and the women looked like they were going to the theater.

This sounds like the Dachau townspeople were acting badly because they dressed up too much for the burial of the bodies.  As far as I know, the women from the town of Dachau did not participate in burying the bodies.  The Germans were ordered by the American military to dress up when they visited the camp.  Clothes were very hard to  get during World War II, even in America.  The idea was to have the German people ruin their best clothes as they buried the bodies; this was their punishment for allowing the prisoners to die in a typhus epidemic.

Men from the village of Dachau took the bodies in wagons to be buried

German civilians bury the Dachau bodies at Leitenberg

Here is a final quote from John F. Floyd:

Hitler and Himmler paid special attention to the Jews, with the objective of eliminating all of them from Germany. What many people fail to realize is this is one goal Hitler achieved. Today, there are only 3,000 people of the Jewish faith living in Germany, out of a population of 80 million.

Even this part of the article is wrong.  There were 585,000 Jews in Germany when Hitler came to power; some books and web sites put the number of Jews in Germany even lower, down to 522,000.  The population of Germany is now close to 82 million. The number of Jews now in Germany is around 200,000, according to Wikipedia.

  2. Hello, this is some great work by Herr Berg, to have truth denied as hate speech is the way our jewish friends(enemies) want it , so nobody out there can question the great Holyhoax and live to tell about it from the outside,, I have to wonder if they haven’t murdered the courageous David Cole, for speaking out against this travesty. Anyone who still believes this nonsense is truly an idiot or ,of course, a jew on his way to the bank to cash his holohoax cheque.

  3. I don’t know about the Dachau deaths but I do know that near the end of the war, the Germans could not delouse the prisoners as well as they had been (the agent was Zyklon-B) so many more deaths from typhus would be expected. As well, the German people were starving and it’s somewhat understandable that prisoners would be also.

  4. Yo Berg, you better watch your Kraut chomping mouth talking about American soldiers should hang themselves. My grandfather is first generation Italian who fought for America and destroyed Mussolini, along with your fellow Germans so you should remember that it was your people who could not win a war. Although that may be because having Hitler as Reichs Fuhrer In Chief was like playing Stratego with Charles Manson. He makes seven good moves and then shoves the dice up his ass. But that’s neither here nor there as the Germans did lose the war but did fight to the end. I do not believe all the crap about the Holocaust, but I do have a problem with you Mr. Berg saying American soldiers should off themselves. I at least have enough respect for the Germans that they did fight to the death and fought with pride. Regardless of what happened or didn’t happen, times of war are times of war. Shite happens. The Germans surrendered, got shot, IT WAS A WAR. People die in wars. My cousin died in Iraq, you fight a war, there is a very high chance you may not come home alive. I don’t wish death on all the Iraqi people. Although I do wish they would at least stop playing “Who’s On First” and make up their mind about who they ally with. The only country I wish would turn into a crater is The Republic Of Turkey, as their is huge proof they did knowingly kill Greek brethren and Armenian folk and can’t even admit it to this day. That my brothers and sisters, is a Genocide denying bunch of hypocrites. I am sorry if I seem long winded, Mr. Berg just made my blood boil :). Great essay by the way, good arguments.

    Comment by Vinternatt — August 21, 2010 @ 5:19 pm

    • I think that Mr. Berg meant that American soldiers should hang their heads in shame, not hang themselves by the neck until dead. The Germans were held accountable for alleged war crimes; Americans committed real war crimes but were never brought to trial. BTW, the Italians changed sides so they could be on the winning side.

    • Vinternatt, take a dollar bill out of your wallet and look at what it says along the top margin. It says “Federal Reserve Note”, not “United States Note”. This begs the question…what exactly is the origin of that note? Who issued it and under what authority? It says right on there that the United States Government did NOT issue that note. The FEDERAL RESERVE issued that note. How did that happen – magic? The Jewish Federal Reserve was foisted on the American people in 1913 by Woodrow Wilson, one of the worst traitors in American history.

      Ever hear of “Jewish Lighting”? Well, there’s also such a thing as “Jewish Magic”. Jewish Magic is when a groups of foreign International Bankers bribe members of congress and the President (Woodrow Wilson, in this case) to enact a law giving a private group of Jewish bankers the exclusive right to “create” your money and lend it to your government for repayment plus interest. Oh…and the interest rate for repayment…is set by those same Jewish bankers. Is that awesome or what folks? Can you imagine the kind of power that a situation like that would entail for that group of Jewish bankers? Just imagine the implications of that kind of power.

      Apparently, Thomas Jefferson could imagine the implications of that kind of power – as he said:

      “‘If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation the banks and corporations that grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.’

      How did Jefferson know that? Because that was the whole reason the Revolutionary War was fought. The Jewish Bank of England was screwing the colonies. Hang on folks…why am I calling the Bank of England Jewish?” The Bank of England is a “Rothschild” bank. Rothschild means “Red Shield” in German. Rothschild is an assumed name taken by a Jewish banker named Meyer Amschel Bauer – who founded the Bank of England (among others). Gotta know your history folks…get with the program.

      Anyway, we’ve had this Federal Reserve thing since 1913. So how does it work again? It goes like this: The Jewish Federal Reserve banks literally “create” money by simply making a “book entry”. That’s right – they just write down a number…and that amount of money is “created”. Then, they lend it to the US government with a promise to repay it plus interest.

      Folks, you’re looking confused :o. Do you need to re-read that? Go ahead if you need to.

      Yes, the Jewish Bankers just get deluged with money from essentially nowhere. Isn’t that awesome? I guess that’s why they call them the “chosen” people. Long story short, with all that money they have subverted governments, acquired assets and even hired propaganda tools like Rush Limbaugh.

      So what does this Jewish Federal Reserve thing have to do with Dachau?”. The Jewish Federal Reserve System is you Shadow Government. This Jewish Shadow Government implemented the “collective guilt campaign” in post WW2 Germany which sought to individually charge each and every white German with each and every real, imagined and spurious atrocity committed against Jews during WW2.

      The same game-plan of “collective guilt” was then used against each and every individual white American in the United States during the Jew/Communist “civil rights campaign” for every real, imagined and spurious incidence of Slavery of negroes.

      This was done to damage white European solidarity. You are reaping the benefits of all that today…especially in places like Detroit.

      Essentially, the goal is to crash the current system and replace it with Jew-run communism. Some people call that the “new world order”. Call it what you will, but cultural marxism (aka, political correctness) and communism go hand in hand. That’s what they’re trying to do.

      Earlier, I mentioned Rush Limbaugh being a propaganda tool of Zionist Jews. Limbaugh’s check is signed by a foreign national. An Israeli woman by the name of Orit Gadiesh…used to work in “Israeli Intelligence”…actually the rumor is that she’s MOSSAD…well – she’s the CEO of a company called Bain Capital Partners in Boston http://www.baincapital.com/. Bain Capital owns Clear Channel Communications – and Limbaugh works directly for Clear Channel Premier Radio Networks. Anyway, Orit Gadiesh is an Israeli national with direct ties to the Israeli Intelligence community – and as you know – propaganda is real important to those Intelligence types.

      They pay me lots of Jewish Federal Reserve Notes to:

      1) Channel your anger away from Israel and Jews, and
      2) Get you to associate “patriotism” with support for a foreign nation – Israel.

      There are others on the payroll as well: Hannity, Beck, Savage (aka Weiner), Levin, etc.

    • Vinternatt, unfortunately the US government had already been subverted by the Jewish Federal Reserve banking system and their many bribes made with YOUR money.

      Frankly, knowing what I know now…if I would have lived back then – I would have fought for the Germans against the Jewish Federal Reserve controlled US and British governments.

      Your affirmation of US atrocities against Germans AFTER THEY HAD SURRENDERED is reprehensible. Those US troops who committed those crimes should have been executed.

      Frankly, many of those who fought then are regretting it now that they are seeing what the Zionist Jews have done to both Europe and the US after the war.

      I think we would all have been much better off if the Zionist Jew banking system was destroyed.

      BTW, why do you think we’re in Iraq and Afghanistan? Do you think it’s because “they hate our freedoms?” How about: it’s because we’re fighting wars for our Zionist Jews Shadow Government.

      Isn’t it a coincidence that you now have 4 jews on the supreme court…our of 9 justices – when jews comprise only about 2 percent of the population?

      Isn’t it a coincidence that your media is Zionist Jew owned and operated?

      Isn’t a coincidence that hollywood is Zionist Jew owned and operated?

      Damn, there sure are a lot of coincidences around here.

  5. An important essay that gives a real picture of what Dachau was really like, is: http://www.nazigassings.com/TwoTimesDachauWECKERT.html

    The Nazis really were the “Good Guys.” Americans should, with only few exceptions, hang themselves for shame for their own sadistic and cowardly war crimes.

    • I am familiar with the article by Weckert. Arthur Haulot, a prisoner at Dachau, asked to speak on behalf of the Commandant of Dachau at the American Military Tribunal proceedings where the Commandant was convicted, but Haulot was not allowed to say anything good about the Commandant.

  6. Accuracy my ass. Just another denying nazi apologist. Your points are just like the ones used by UFO types and Kennedy WTC conspiracy theorists. You put thoughts in the heads of others, such as “Why did they lock the gates?”

    Yes, your poor innocent Dachau nazi villagers and Ss guards were not responsible at all.

    You are an idiot.

    Comment by tampalam — July 27, 2010 @ 1:11 am

    • How do you explain the deaths of 2226 prisoners who died in the month of May, 1945 and 196 prisoners who died in the month of June 1945 at Dachau after the camp was liberated?

      Paul Berben, the official historian of Dachau and a member of the International Committee which controlled the main camp at the end, wrote about the typhus epidemic in his book called “Dachau 1933 – 1945: The Official History”.

      How do you explain that more than half of the deaths (18,296) at the Dachau main camp and all the sub-camps were between November 1944 and the end of May 1945? According to Paul Berben, most of these deaths were due to the typhus epidemic in the camp.

      • FG, this is another great blog. Why bother with this rude ignoramus who calls himself tampalam – he has said not one thing with even the least bit of intelligence. If he had to stand up in front of people in a real-life situation and answer questions he wouldn’t be able to open him mouth. He knows zilch.

        He’s probably not even as knowlegable as John and Connie Floyd and that’s saying something. Yuk, yuk.

        It’s really astonishing that The Gadsden Times would publish an article someone wrote from watching The History Channel. That backs up what you say about current journalism. But still, never give up countering the lies.

        Comment by Skeptic — July 28, 2010 @ 5:32 pm

        • I am now moderating all comments which include insults; tampalam got in just under the wire before I started moderating. I have to keep my blood pressure from rising because I am looking after my health.

          Comment by furtherglory — July 28, 2010 @ 6:38 pm

          • Please take care of your health.

            Holohoax nonsense can destroy one’s physical and mental health.

            This is an excellent essay. I was referred here by Mr. Berg of nazigassings.com

      • Plus, you’ve done a fantastic job with the photographs once again.

        Comment by Skeptic — July 28, 2010 @ 5:34 pm

    • In response to tampalam(lamb): If you are not a conspiracy theorist then you believe the official party line instead – that a magic bullet capable of stopping in midair and changing direction killed Kennedy, that his route was redirected by someone with no malintent, etc. Or that some guy gave a kid a boxcutter and told him to take down the twin towers. “You put thoughts in the head of others…”, what kind of a sin is that, and as if the jewish propoganda machine doesn’t do the same thing. Discussing historical truth with most people is much like discussing trigonometry with a water buffalo. It is easy to spot those that have been brainwashed (too strong a term perhaps but will do for now). Their convictions take on a quasi-religious nature and they all too readily show their anger. The reason that propoganda takes hold so well is one of survival, to get everyone on, as they say now, the same page. That very intellectual timidity now works against us.
