Bradley Smith is still making trouble at American universities

Filed under: Holocaust — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 8:10 am

Today, I received an e-mail alerting me to a new letter that Bradley Smith has sent to Professor Steven Pinker at Harvard University. This is nothing new. Bradley Smith has been making trouble for years, by constantly sending letters to universities, asking for the name of one person (with proof) who was gassed by the Nazis.

Remains of the gas chamber at Sachsenhausen which had a floor drain

Can a homicidal gas chamber have a floor drain, like the one shown in the ruins of the Sachsenhausen gas chamber, in the photo above?  Just asking!

Although there are numerous Holocaust survivors, out on the lecture circuit, who are claiming that their relatives were “gassed,” there is no proof whatsoever that gas chambers were used to kill people during the “Holocaust.”

I have written several blog posts about the alleged gas chambers at the Majdanek “death camp,” which you can read here: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/tag/majdanek-gas-chamber/

Dwight D. Eisenhower

Dwight D. Eisenhower

This quote is from the letter to a Harvard professor, written by Bradley Smith:

Back in 2009 The Harvard Crimson ran a one-column, two-inch ad where I asked why Dwight D. Eisenhower, in his book Crusade In Europe, did not mention the words “gas chambers.” Publication of the ad caused a scandal and The Crimson withdrew it after one run. You can review that story here. From what I can find, you did not comment on this Free Speech scandal. Reading your principled article in The Boston Globe, it occurs to me to wonder why.

Why do you think General Eisenhower wrote his account of World War 11 and choose to not mention “gas chambers”? No one was in a better position to know what weapons of mass destruction the Germans employed during that war and which they did not. Eisenhower chose (he chose!) to not support a narrative about gas chambers that he had every reason to understand was corrupt. At the same time, having in mind to further his career, he would evade risking that career by discounting them.

Why does Bradley Smith keep taunting people like this? He knows why Eisenhower did not mention the “gas chambers,” and so does everyone else of Eisenhower’s generation. [Eisenhower was born in 1890.]

Back in 1948, when Eisenhower wrote his best selling book, everyone knew what a homicidal gas chamber was.  Everyone knew that a crematorium, that was not air tight and did not have a tall stack to vent the gas, could not have been used to gas 2,000 people at one time, as the Holocaustians now claim.

Back in 1948, America had gas chambers to execute criminals, including the gas chamber in Jefferson City, MO where two people could be gassed at the same time.

I wrote about the gas chamber in Jefferson City, Missouri on this blog post: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2012/06/03/what-does-a-real-gas-chamber-look-like/

New book by Wendy Holden tells about new-born babies who survived the Holocaust

New book by Wendy tells about babies born to mothers in concentration camps, who survived

New book by Wendy Holden tells about babies born to mothers in a concentration camp

The cover of Wendy Holden’s book shows a photo of the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp. The prisoners, about whom she writes in her book, were originally sent to Auschwitz-Birkenau.

Mauthausen was the only Class III camp in the Nazi concentration  camp system. It was for criminals, who were classified as “return unwanted.”  There were no female prisoners at Mauthausen until the last days of the war, when women were transferred there because Russian soldiers were on their way to liberate the three Auschwitz camps.

You can read a news article here about survivors of the Holocaust who were born in concentration camps during World War II.

The news article tells about survivors of the Mauthausen camp who honored their liberator, U.S. Army Sgt. Albert Kosiek, a 28-year-old son of Polish immigrants living in Chicago, [who] led the platoon of 23 men who liberated 40,000 prisoners from Mauthausen and other nearby camps in Gusen. He also handled the surrender of 1,800 German soldiers.

I wrote about the liberation of Mauthausen in this previous blog post: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/tag/mauthausen-liberation/

I wrote about the Mauthausen camp on my website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/Mauthausen/KZMauthausen/index.html

This quote is from the news article:

U.S. Army Sgt. Albert Kosiek, a 28-year-old son of Polish immigrants living in Chicago, led the platoon of 23 men who liberated 40,000 prisoners from Mauthausen and other nearby camps in Gusen. He also handled the surrender of 1,800 German soldiers,

“He really didn’t talk much about it,” says his oldest son, Larry Kosiek, 67, of Mount Prospect. “When we were studying World War II in school, I said, ‘Well, you were in the Army. Tell me about it.’ And he gave me this: a letter he had written to his mother.”

As platoon leader, Sgt. Kosiek was moving his troops through the foothills of the Austrian Alps in the waning days of World War II when Red Cross workers told him about the camp and the Nazi guards’ plan to abandon the site after killing all the prisoners so as to leave no witnesses to tell about the gas chambers and mass executions.

Note that the article mentions “gas chambers” [plural]. As far as I know, there was only one “gas  chamber” at Mauthausen, which was in the shower room. You can read about the one and only Mauthausen gas chamber on my website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/Mauthausen/Gas%20Chamber/GasChamberEntrance.html

The following quote is also from the news article. See if you can spot a huge mistake in this quote:

In addition to Olsky and her newborn son, Slovak teacher Priska Lowenbeinova and her newborn daughter, Hana, and Anka Bergman, and her newborn daughter, Eva, were found. All the women had hidden their pregnancies from infamous SS inquisitor Dr. Josef Mengele, who sent them to Auschwitz instead of having them killed. They all ended up at Mauthausen, the final concentration camp to be liberated.

Bergman, whose husband and baby boy died in the camp at Auschwitz, went into labor at the shock of arriving at Mauthausen. Her daughter, Eva Clarke, who now lives in England, said her mother told her there was an order to kill all babies, but one guard intervened. “I haven’t seen a baby in years,” said the guard, who wanted to hold and play with the infant. When the Americans arrived, the malnourished baby was sick and near death, until a U.S. medic gave her a dose of a new drug called penicillin.

The three moms all infused their babies with the importance of living lives in defiance of Hitler’s plan to extinguish them all.

If Hitler had a “plan to extinguish them all,” he failed miserably.

Did you notice the mistake in the  news article?  Dr.  Mengele was a doctor at Auschwitz, yet he sent the women  to Auschwitz. Who knows what the writer was trying to say.

This quote is also from the news article:

“Nobody can identify with 6 million people. Everybody can identify with one family,” says [Eva] Clarke, who lives in England and tells her story to schools and charities.

I wrote about Eva Clarke on this previous blog post: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2010/05/06/holocaust-survivor-was-born-in-mauthausen-concentration-camp/

and on this blog post: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/tag/holocaust-survivor-eva-clarke/

As is customary in today’s journalism, only one side of the story was told in this news article  —  the  side of the  Holocaustians.

I also wrote about Mauthausen in this previous blog post: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2014/12/09/holocaust-survivor-who-was-sent-to-the-mauthausen-gas-chamber-the-day-before-the-camp-was-liberated/

According to Deborah Lipstadt, there is only one side to the story of the Holocaust.  I wrote about this on this previous blog post: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/tag/denying-the-holocaust/

New documentary about 119 relatives of a RT reporter who died in Nazi concentration camps

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 1:25 pm

You can read a news article about Paula Slier, a RT reporter, who has made a new documentary about 119 of her relatives who died in Nazi concentration camps during World War II. Paul Slier claims that one of her relatives was killed in a gas chamber at Sobibór.

Processed by: Helicon Filter;

Sobibor was a whistle stop on a branch railroad line

I wrote a previous blog post about the claim that the names of the Jews who were gassed are unknown: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2013/05/10/30000-records-kept-by-the-nazis-but-not-one-name-of-anyone-who-died-in-a-gas-chamber/

RT is a global news network that broadcasts 24/7 in English, Arabic and Spanish from its studios in Moscow, Washington, DC, and London.  It is available to 700 million viewers worldwide. RT is the most watched TV news network on YouTube with more than 2 billion views. RT is the winner of the Monte Carlo TV Festival Awards for best 24-hr broadcast, and the only Russian TV channel to garner three nominations for the prestigious International Emmy Award for News.

The news article starts out with this quote:

Begin quote

MOSCOW, May 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — In “119 Lives Unlived,” RT correspondent Paula Slier looks into her family’s past to discover the exact fate of the 119 members of her family who were exterminated in Nazi concentration camps during World War 2. Seventy years after the end of the war, she conducts a personal investigation into where and how they died.

Paula Slier starts her search in Amsterdam, where a shoebox with postcards and letters that belonged to her second cousin Flip Slier was found during construction work on an old house. In 1943 Flip was murdered in a gas chamber of the Sobibor concentration camp.
[…]

119 Lives Unlived will premiere globally on RTDoc and RT International on May 20. A special pre-premiere screening of the documentary in Russian will take place in Moscow on Monday, May 18 as part of RT’s ClubDoc project. Watch the promo here: http://clubdoc.rt.com/

Did you catch that, dear readers? Paula Slier has the name of one of her relatives, who was gassed at Sobibór. And you thought that there were no gas chambers at Sobibór.

Does anyone besides me think that the story of this camp is very strange?

Let’s go to Wikipedia for the true story.

This quote is from Wikipedia:

Begin quote

Jews from Poland, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Czechoslovakia and the Soviet Union, as well as the Soviet prisoners of war, were transported to Sobibór by rail and suffocated in gas chambers fed by the exhaust of large petrol engines. Up to 200,000 people were murdered at Sobibór,[3] and possibly more. During the postwar trial against the former SS personnel of Sobibór, held in Hagen, Professor Wolfgang Scheffler estimated the total figure of murdered Jews at a minimum of 250,000.[4][5]

All of this will come as a great surprise to Bradley Smith, who has been asking for the name of one person (with proof) who was gassed by the Nazis. I wrote about Bradley Smith and his search for one person who was gassed on this blog post:

The gas chamber in the Auschwitz main camp

The gas chamber in the Auschwitz main camp (click on the photo to enlarge)

Is the room shown in the photo above a “gas chamber” or a crematorium? You had better believe that it is a gas chamber, if you don’t want to go to prison for 5 years.  There will soon be laws against Holocaust denial in North America.

In a recent news article, which you can read in full here, I learned that a football player in Canada was fined for tweeting about a You Tube video that was put up on March 18, 2015. The video contains factual information, which constitutes “Holocaust denial.”

This quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

A CFL player was fined and apologized on Friday for making inappropriate tweets.

Montreal Alouettes defensive lineman Khalif Mitchell took to Twitter and made inappropriate statements, including linking to a Holocaust denial video.

Mitchell, a defensive tackle who previously spent two years on the San Francisco 49ers’ practice squad, posted a link to a video titled “The greatest lie ever told — The Holocaust” on May 8.

The CFL Playes’ Association and B’nai Brith Canada, a Jewish human-rights organization, were both part of the apology.

“I wholeheartedly apologize to all those who I know I let down by posting those videos, especially those who look up to me as a professional athlete,” Mitchell said. “I fell into a trap by watching that video and I hope others can learn from my very public mistake.

[…]

Mitchell was fined undisclosed amounts by the CFL and the Alouettes for violating the league’s social media policy. The league fine will be donated to a charity of the player’s choice.

It is my personal opinion that a Holocaust denial law will soon be passed in America.  I blogged about this at https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2013/03/29/when-a-holocaust-denial-law-is-eventually-passed-in-america-what-will-us-citizens-be-required-to-believe/

Oskar Groening wants to bear witness to refute Holocaust deniers

Oskar Groening in court (Julian Stratenschulte/AFP)
Is this the face of a depraved killer?

Former German soldier Oskar Groening is back in court today, after a short stay in a hospital, which interrupted his trial.

In the latest news report about his case, which you can read in full here, Groener explained why he has gone over to the other side and now wants to refute Holocaust denial, which is against the law in Germany.

This quote is from the news article:

Begin  quote

Mr Groening, who after his stint at the death camp was captured by Allied forces and spent time in a prisoner of war camp in Britain, described in a matter of fact tone some of the murders he witnessed at Auschwitz.

On his first day on the ramp where Jewish prisoners exited the trains, he saw an SS colleague grab a crying baby and slam its head against a truck until it was quiet.

He also told of an incident when he saw naked Jews herded into a farm house near the camp. A soldier then locked them in, donned a gas mask, and poured the contents of a can down a hatch.

“The screams became louder and more desperate but after a short time they became quieter again,” Mr Groening said.

End quote

Does anyone besides me see something suspicious about these stories told by Groening in the courtroom?

I recognize these stories as claims that have been told many times by former inmates at Auschwitz-Birenau. Slamming the heads of babies against a train or a truck is the Number One atrocity story told by the former prisoners. The “screams” of the prisoners as they were being gassed is the second most common story told by survivors.

According to the news article: “Mr Groening admitted to being an enthusiastic Nazi and to working as an SS guard at Auschwitz between May and June 1944, when more than 400,000 Jews from Hungary were brought there and at least 300,000 killed almost immediately in gas chambers.”

How is it Groening’s fault that 300,000 Hungarian Jews were killed in only 10 weeks time?  How was he supposed to stop the gassing of the Hungarian Jews?

If Groening is responsible for the gassing of the Hungarian Jews, he is also responsible for saving the Hungarian Jews, who are now in the courtroom testifying against him.

This quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

Eva Kor, one of the co-plaintiffs, told The Telegraph she lost her parents and her two older sisters when the entire family was taken by the Nazis from Hungary and sent to Auschwitz.

“I can’t bring anybody back,” she said just before the trial began. “But I want information on how the system worked. How they decided on selecting who went to the gas chambers, and I want to see files on the medical experiments that were carried out on me and my twin sister by (Josef) Mengele,” said the 81-year-old, who now lives in the US.

End quote

The news article also mentions Susan Pollack [Zsuzsanna Blau from Felsogod, Hungary], who was sent to Auschwitz-Birkenau at the age of 14.  Susan lost 50 members of her family, and she was the only member of her family to survive the Holocaust. She was moved from Auschwitz to Bergen-Belsen where she was liberated after the camp was voluntarily turned over to the British.

Allegedly, everyone under the age of 15 was gassed at Auschwitz, but not Susan Pollack. Dr. Josef Mengele, who was one of the 30 SS men who selected the prisoners to be gassed, allowed her to live because he knew that some day old men, who had nothing to do with the selection of prisoners to be gassed, would be put on trial as war criminals and witnesses would be needed to testify 70 years later.

Margaret Bourke-White’s famous photo of Buchenwald prisoners

Filed under: Buchenwald, Germany, Holocaust — furtherglory @ 6:23 pm
Famous photo of Buchenwald survivors was taken by Margaret Bourk-White

Famous photo of Buchenwald survivors taken by Margaret Bourke-White

A recent news article, which you can read in full here, included the photo shown above with a credit given to Time and Life Pictures/Getty Image. This photo was taken by the well known photographer Margaret Bourke-White, who was famous for posing her pictures, and passing them off as candid photos.

The description of this photo, in the news article is this:

“Emaciated male prisoners, victims of Nazi genocide, staring through barbed wire fence at their liberators after American forces overran the Buchenwald concentration camp”

The men in the photo are far from being “victims of Nazi genocide.” If they had been genocided, they would have been dead at the time that the prisoners liberated themselves before the American soldiers  arrived.

The photo above, taken by Margaret Burke-White, on April 15, 1945, after the liberation of Buchenwald, shows a group of unsmiling male inmates, who were privileged Communist political prisoners, lined up in front of a barbed wire fence in the camp.

In the center of the photo is a dapper-looking gentleman with a neatly trimmed moustache and short beard; he is wearing freshly-laundered striped prison pants, and what looks like a new wool overcoat.

His expression is one of disdain, as though he can’t wait for the picture taking to end, and the cigarettes and chocolate bars to be handed out. The rest of the prisoners in the picture, all of them clean shaven, including one elderly gentleman leaning on a cane, are looking at the camera as though they are puzzled by the sight of this self-assured American woman, dressed in full Army regalia, who is standing behind a camera set upon a tripod, and holding a flash fill-light attached to the camera.

Margaret Bourke-White, America’s most famous photographer, had been traveling with the Third Army and had accompanied the American soldiers when they crossed the Rhine. She had arrived at Buchenwald on April 15, 1945, along with General George S. Patton. This was four days after the prisoners had liberated themselves on April 11, 1945.

“Train 1000 to Auschwitz” on the 8th of May 2015

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 11:50 am

You can read about the Train 1000 in today’s news at http://www.europarl.europa.eu/news/en/news-room/content/20150507STO53210/html/Schulz-in-Auschwitz-We-have-come-together-here-to-keep-the-memory-alive

1000 young people were brought on a train to Auschwitz to hear a group of old men speak today at the site of the International Monument at Auschwitz-Birkenau. These young people are being urged to “keep the memory of  Auschwitz alive.”

The photo below was shown at the top of the news article:

This road led to the Sauna  where incoming prisoners took a shower

The monument is between the ruins of two of the largest gas chambers at Auschwitz-Birkeanu. The location  of the monument  prevents tourists from knowing that there was a road which led to the  Sauna.

Some of the prisoners, who got off the train, were given  a shower in the Sauna while their clothing  was disinfected, and they were then given uniforms fresh out of the disinfection chambers.  This was done to save lives; that’s why there are so many Auschwitz survivors still alive today.

The incoming prisoners, who had been selected for work, immediately after getting off the train, were sent to one of the three disinfection buildings that were close to the train tracks. They were given a shower and then given clean  uniforms that had just been disinfected.

When I visited Auschwitz-Birkenau in 2005, the disinfection buildings were off limits. I presume that today’s 1000 students  were not allowed to see these buildings.

It is up to the younger generation to keep the Holocaust story alive. God forbid they should learn what really happened.

The most egregious lies about the Holocaust were told by Lt. Jack Taylor

Entrance into the Mauthausen camp where Lt. Jack Taylor was a prisoner for a few days. The white stone object is the back side of a monument to the Russian general who was frozen to death.

A reader of my blog made a comment in which a link to the filmed court testimony given by Lt. Jack Taylor was included. I believe that Lt. Jack Taylor was the worst liar of all the Holohoax liars; his lies deserve a blog post of their own, so bear with me, please.

Lt. Jack Taylor testified in  court about the Mauthausen gas chamber

Lt. Jack Taylor testified lied in court about the Mauthausen gas chamber

First, a bit of background about the Mauthausen camp:

The Mauthausen concentration camp was a Class III camp in Austria for “Return Unwanted” prisoners. The camp was liberated by American troops on May 5, 1945; it was the last of the Nazi camps to be liberated by American soldiers, just three days before World War II ended on May 8, 1945. The American soldiers were greeted at the gate by 37-year-old Lt. Jack H. Taylor, a Commando in the United States Navy, who had been captured after leading a sabotage mission behind enemy lines. In other words, he was an  illegal combatant, and that’s why he was arrested and sent to a prison camp.

When the Americans arrived, Lt. Taylor had been a prisoner at Mauthausen for only 35 days; he had arrived in the camp on April 1, 1945, after being transferred from a Gestapo prison in Vienna because Soviet troops were 50 kilometers from the city and advancing rapidly. The Nazis didn’t want  him to get killed in the fight to take the city of Vienna.

Lt. Cmdr. Jack Taylor gave the following testimony at the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg:

Begin quote:

“In October ’44, I was the first Allied officer to drop onto Austria. I was captured December 1st, by the Gestapo, severely beaten, ah, even though I was in uniform, severely beaten, and, and, considered as a non-prisoner of war. I was taken to Vienna prison where I was held for four months.

When the Russians neared Vienna, I was taken to this Mauthausen concentration lager [camp], an extermination camp, the worst in Germany, where we have been starving and, and beaten and killed, ah, fortunately, my turn hadn’t come. Ah, two American officers at least have been executed here. Here is the insignia of one, a U.S. naval officer, and here is his dog tag. Here is the army officer, executed by gas in this lager [camp]. Ah…there were…

[Question: “How many ways did they execute them?”]

Five or six ways: by gas, by shooting, by beating, that is beating with clubs, ah, by exposure, that is standing out in the snow, naked, for 48 hours and having cold water put on them, thrown on them in the middle of winter, starvation, dogs, and pushing over a hundred-foot cliff.”

This cliff at Mauthausen was called the “parachute jump” (Click on the photo to enlarge)

Lt. Cmdr. Taylor was the first witness for the prosecution in the Mauthausen trial, which was brought before an American Military Tribunal at Dachau. By now, Taylor was an experienced prosecution witness and he elaborated on his Nuremberg testimony.

When asked by prosecutor Lt. Col. William Denson, on direct examination, how many different forms of killing that he had come in contact with in Mauthausen, Taylor testified as follows:

Begin quote:

“Gassing, hanging, shooting, beating. There was one particular group of Dutch Jews who were beaten until they jumped over the cliff into the stone quarry. Some that were not killed on the first fall were taken back up and thrown over to be sure. Then there was exposure. Any new transport coming in was forced to stand out in the open, regardless of the time of the year, practically naked. Other forms of killing included clubbing to death with axes or hammers and so forth, tearing to pieces by dogs specially trained for the purpose, injections into the heart and veins with magnesium chloride or benzene, whippings with a cow-tail to tear the flesh away, mashing in a concrete mixer, forcing them to drink a great quantity of water and jumping on the stomach while the prisoner was lying on his back, freezing half-naked in subzero temperatures, buried alive, red-hot poker down the throat. I remember a very prominent Czech general who was held down in the shower room and had a hose forced down his throat. He drowned that way.”

End Quote

Of course, Jack Taylor had never seen anyone carried back up to the top of a cliff and thrown off a second time, nor had he ever seen anyone mashed in a concrete mixer, nor buried alive, nor killed with a red-hot poker shoved down their throat. These were stories lies that he had heard from the other prisoners.

This kind of hearsay testimony was common in all the Dachau proceedings. The purpose of reiterating these stories in sworn testimony on the witness stand was to get these atrocities entered into the record, so that these alleged crimes would go down in history for future generations to read as the gospel truth.

Lt. Cmdr. Taylor may have been confused about the nationality of the general. There were similar stories about a Russian general, Lt. Gen. Dmitry Mikhailovich Karbyshev, who was either drowned in the shower or forced to stand outside in freezing weather while water was poured over him on some unknown date in February 1945. A statue of Karbyshev encased in a block of ice stands near the gate into the Mauthausen camp. (see the photo at the  top of this page)

Lt. Condr. Taylor testified during the trial that he had been scheduled to die in the Mauthausen gas chamber on May 6, 1945, but he was miraculously saved when American troops arrived the day before his planned execution.

In his debriefing statement, Lt. Condr. Jack Taylor told Dr. Stransky Milos, the Czech prisoner who wrote the statement, the following:

“After the Americans had liberated us, I discovered that I should have been executed on 28 April 1945, along with 27 other prisoners from Block 13. A friendly Czech, Mylos [Milos], who worked in the political department had, unknown to me, removed my paper and destroyed it so that I was not included with the 27.”

According to an addendum to the debriefing statement, written by Dr. Stransky Milos, an order was given to execute 27 prisoners who had been sent to Mauthausen on January 4, 1945 [1.4.45]. Lt. Jack Taylor, who had arrived on April 1, 1945, was included in this order.

Dr. Milos wrote the following in his addendum to the debriefing statement:

“Execution ordered by Kommandeur der Sicherheitspolizei und des Sicherheitsdiestes in Wien based on martial law for 27 police-prisoners, many of the transport from 1.4.1945 [January 4, 1945] took place on 28.4.1945 at Mauthausen afternoon. The execution of the Captain Taylor has not been carried out, because 3 days before I burnt his documents.”

Keep in mind that the Germans were building Messerschmitt ME262 jet airplanes at Mauthausen and V-2 rockets at a sub-camp of Buchenwald, but they were allegedly too stupid to notice that the only copy of an execution order had been burned by an inmate.

When Jack Taylor arrived at Mauthausen, there was a typhus epidemic in progress and 300 prisoners were dying each day, but according to Taylor’s court testimony, 367 prisoners had been marched from Czechoslovakia to Mauthausen during the epidemic, and instead of being taken to the Quarantine camp which was directly across the street from the crematorium, they were immediately taken into the crematorium to be killed and then burned in the a new oven that Taylor had been working on to build.

To  sum up, of all the Holohoax liers that you will ever  meet, and all those  that you won’t meet, Lt. Jack Taylor was the worst.

I wrote about the liberation of the Mauthausen camp on this previous blog post: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2010/05/07/the-liberation-of-mauthausen-may-5-1945/

Mauthausen was the only  Class III camp in the concentration camp system. Prisoners who were sent there were classified as  “Return  Unwanted” meaning that they had almost no chance of being  released.

There was one American  who was a prisoner at Mauthausen: Lt. Jack Taylor. You can read about him on this previous blog post: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2011/05/06/lt-cmdr-jack-h-taylor-americas-first-navy-seal/

The Mauthausen camp is unique because of these three things:

1. The Mauthausen camp is very beautiful; the town of Mauthausen is even  more beautiful.

2. More lies have been told about this camp than about any other Nazi concentration camp. The biggest lie ever told is the lie about the Mauthausen gas chamber, which was a multi-purpose room where prisoners could take a shower, or be killed by gas put into the room through an apparatus that was removed just before the camp was liberated.

The Mauthausen gas chamber was a fully functioning shower room

3. There are more memorials to the former prisoners of this camp than there are in any of the other Concentration Camp Memorial Sites.

I am reading a new book entitled “Holocaust High Priest”

New book about Elie Wiesel and the Holocaust

New book about Elie Wiesel and the Holocaust by Warren B. Routledge

I am currently reading a new book, written by Warren B. Routledge, about the Holocaust High Priest, which you may have guessed is Elie Wiesel.  The sub-title of the book is “Elie Wiesel, Night, The Memory Cult, and the Rise of Revisionism.”

I usually don’t start reading a non-fiction book by beginning on the first page. I like to skip around, using the index, to locate the best parts. In this case, the index is not designed for that kind of reading.

The Forward of the book starts off by describing how Elie Wiesel and his father followed the Germans when they abandoned Auschwitz, although they had been given a choice: Elie could have stayed in his cozy, warm hospital bed and waited for the nice Soviet soldiers to liberate him. Instead, he jumped out of his hospital bed and followed those evil German SS men out of the camp. Why wasn’t he afraid of being Holocausted?

So right away, this book tells you “Something wrong!” Why would Elie and his father march for miles through the snow, following those evil Germans when there were nice Russian soldiers coming to save them?

I thought that I knew everything about the Holocaust and Elie Wiesel, but in Chapter 1, I learned new information that I didn’t know before. So I am very glad that I didn’t skip around in reading the book, as I usually do.

Chapter 1 gets started on page 19. It is about a man that I had never heard of. My first thought was that I certainly would not have started a book by writing some boring story about a man that nobody had ever heard of before. But I kept on reading and learned that this information is extremely important.

I am almost to the end. On the very last page are two photos of the 1947 drawings done by David Olere, which depict Elie Wiesel’s description of what he saw on his first Night at Auschwitz.

I learned something new about the  painting shown in the photo above. The left side of the painting, as  shown on my website, has been cut off.  So to sum up, there is more to the story of Elie Wiesel that I didn’t know until I started reading this book.

In the book, there is a lot of coverage of the famous photo taken at Buchenwald, which allegedly shows Elie Wiesel. The author of this book gives a lot of information regarding the photo.
