I’m not talking about the movie Judgment at Nuremberg which starred Burt Lancaster; I’m talking about the convictions of the accused German “war criminals” in the Nuremberg International Military Tribunal.
There have been numerous articles in the news lately about the Majdanek concentration camp where around 10,000 old shoes recently burned up. Almost all of the articles mention that 79,000 or 80,000 prisoners died at Majdanek.
At the Nuremberg IMT, the Soviet Union submitted documents USSR-8 and USSR-29, which told in detail how the Germans killed 4 million prisoners at Auschwitz and 1.5 million at Majdanek. Now it is accepted by historians that 1.1 million people died at Auschwitz and 79,000 died at Majdanek. Around 900,000 Jews died at Auschwitz and 59,000 Jews died at Majdanek, according to the latest figures.
