DOCTOR Josef Mengele gets no respect

Dr. Mengele is the man on the far left

Shown in the 1944 photo above, from left to right, are Dr. Josef Mengele, Richard Baer, Karl Hoecker, and Walter Schmidetski. Richard Baer, known as the last Commandant of Auschwitz, was the commander of the main camp; his adjutant was Karl Hoecker.

Dr. Josef Mengele was one of 30 SS officers at Auschwitz II, aka Birkenau, who allegedly decided who would live and who would die in the gas chambers. If selections were made by 30 SS men, this means that Dr. Mengele only made around 3% of the selections. Yet every Holocaust survivor claims that Dr. Mengele was on duty when they went through the selection process.

Dr. Josef Mengele was nicknamed the “Angel of Death” by the concentration camp prisoners because he had the face of an angel, yet he allegedly made selections for the gas chambers at Auschwitz.

DOCTOR Josef Mengele

One of the regular readers of my blog, who is a Holocaust denier, made a comment, in which he mentioned “Mengele” without using Dr. Mengele’s title of Doctor. Holocaust believers do not give Dr. Mengele the title of Doctor because they believe that Dr. Mengele made selections for the gas chamber.

Josef Mengele, Rudolf Hoess and Josef Kramer

Dr. Mengele had a Ph.D. in Anthropology as well as a degree in medicine, which he received in July 1938 from the University of Frankfurt. He earned his Ph.D. in 1935 with a thesis on “Racial Morphological Research on the Lower Jaw Section of Four Racial Groups.”

In January 1937, Dr. Mengele was appointed a research assistant at the Institute for Heredity, Biology and Racial Purity at the University of Frankfurt. He worked under Professor Otmar Freiherr von Verschuer, a geneticist who was doing research on twins.

As the war-time director of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute of Anthropology, Human Hereditary Teaching Genetics, located in Berlin, von Verschuer secured the funds for Dr. Mengele’s experiments at Auschwitz. The results of Dr. Mengele’s research on twins was sent to this Institute. The grant for Dr. Mengele’s genetic research was authorized by the German Research Council in August 1943.

Dr. Mengele was very nice to the little children in the camp, yet he allegedly experimented on them as though they were laboratory rats. He volunteered to do the selections at Birkenau, even when it wasn’t his turn, because he wanted to find subjects for his medical research on genetic conditions and hereditary diseases, which he had already begun before the war. He particularly wanted to find twins for the research that he had started before he was posted to Auschwitz-Birkenau.

Dr. Josef Mengele is the man on the far left

Dr. Josef Mengele was one of 30 SS officers at Auschwitz II, aka Birkenau, who allegedly decided who would live, and who would die in the gas chambers. The other 29 officers were probably not as handsome, nor as charming, as Dr. Mengele, so they never became famous.

Dr. Mengele had arrived at Auschwitz-Birkenau in early May 1943, just at the time that the second typhus epidemic was starting. Dr. Mengele himself contracted typhus while he was at Birkenau.

Dr. Mengele was known by all the prisoners because of his good looks and charm. According to Gerald L. Posner and John Ware, the authors of “Mengele, the Complete Story,” many of the children in the Birkenau camp “adored Mengele” and called him “Uncle Pepi.”

Vera Alexander, a survivor of Birkenau, said that Dr. Mengele brought chocolate and the most beautiful clothes for the children, including hair ribbons for the little girls.

Olga Lengyel, a prisoner at the Birkenau camp, wrote in her book entitled “Five Chimneys” that she had heard about Dr. Mengele from the other inmates before she saw him. Lengyel wrote that she had heard that Dr. Mengele was “good-looking” but she was surprised by how “really handsome” he was.

Lengyel wrote, regarding Dr. Mengele: “Though he was making decisions that meant extermination, he was as pleasantly smug as any man could be.”

Holocaust survivor tells his story — the ultimate sign of victory

The title of my blog post today is a quote from a news article, which you can read in full at https://www.algemeiner.com/2017/03/20/in-ultimate-sign-of-victory-elderly-holocaust-survivor-returns-to-auschwitz-birkenau-recounts-his-harrowing-experiences-there/

Begin quote from news article:

A video of an elderly Hasidic Holocaust survivor [shown in the photo above], returning to the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp in Poland and emotionally recounting his harrowing experiences there has gone viral on Facebook, drawing hundreds of thousands of views in just a few days.

This is such big news, that I have put it on my own Facebook page.

In the video, Rabbi Nissen Mangel is seen telling a group of Boyaner Hasidim in Yiddish about how he, at the age of 10, underwent the “selectzia” process — supervised by infamous Nazi doctor Josef Mengele — with his family, who were from Bratislava. Mangel lied to Mengele about his age — claiming he was 17. Even though Mengele realized this was not true, Mangel and his father were chosen for slave labor, rather than immediate execution.

“It was a miracle,” Mangel said. “1.5 million children were sent to the gas chambers and to me Mengele said to work with my father.”

End quote

Notice that Dr. Mengele is never given the title of Doctor.  Mengele killed Jews, so he can never be forgiven, nor given any respect.

I think that this man should show a little respect for DOCTOR Mengele by using his title of DOCTOR.

The enormity of what transpired through this gate

The gate that is shown in my photo above is the same gate that is shown in the photo below. The road through this gate goes through the middle of the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp. Elie Wiesel wrote in his famous book, entitled “Night” that he walked through this gate.

==============================================================

Recent photo of a gate inside the Birkenau camp where student visitor is resting

The following quote is from a news article, which includes the photo above: http://www.spencerdailyreporter.com/story/2397625.html

Begin quote:

Krakow is the home of Auschwitz. Auschwitz was actual several camps in the Polish area. Auschwitz was the original camp, then there was Auschwitz II Birkenau and Auschwitz III Monowitz. The original Auschwitz was mostly a political prison where Birkenau and Monowitz were more what one would think of as extermination camps. They were split into two groups. One was for the use of labor until their usefulness was gone. The second group were automatically sent to the gas chambers.

Warsaw had what was known as the Ghettos. Jews were segregated into these areas where they were overcrowded and had no food. They waited here until they were deported to the camps. To this day, there is still an uneasiness for the Jews in Poland.

End quote

I am totally confused by this article. I wrote about Krakow on my website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/Poland/Kazimierz/Kazimierz01A.html

Does the person who wrote this article think that the Auschwitz camp was in the city of Krakow?

Oświęcim, the town formerly known as Auschwitz, is in the news today; you can read the story at https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/24/world/europe/poland-auschwitz-nazi-stunt-sheep.html

Begin quote:

Malgorzata Jurecka, a spokeswoman for the district police office in Oświęcim (Auschwitz is the German spelling), said late Friday that 11 people were detained — six Poles, four Belarussians and one German. “At the moment, we are gathering and securing all the evidence connected with this case to determine the exact involvement of the individuals in this dramatic incident,” she said. “It was macabre.”

End quote

I wrote about Auschwitz on this previous blog post: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2016/05/31/why-auschwitz-was-picked-as-the-location-for-a-concentration-camp/

My photo of a house on the road to the town formerly known as Auschwitz

The town of Auschwitz was originally founded by German people in 1270, according to historian Robert Jan van Pelt. The town is now known by its Polish name, Oświęcim.

The original name of the town was Auschwitz and it was known by this name when the three Auschwitz camps were in operation; the Germans did not change the name of the town and they did not keep it a secret that they were turning the brick barracks, in a suburb of the town, into a concentration camp for political prisoners.

When the Auschwitz camp was set up, more than half of the inhabitants of the town were Jews and the second most prevalent population in the town was Gypsies.  There were very few Polish people in the town.

When I visited Auschwitz for the second time in 2005, I asked someone at the hotel, where I was staying, to call a taxi for me, because I wanted to go to the town. I was told that I was the first American to ever ask to see the town.

After visiting the town, I wrote the following on my website:

The actual town of Oświęcim has virtually nothing to recommend it to a typical tourist. As far as I could see, there were only four hotels in the town in October 2005, and no night life.

There is a 17th century Catholic church at the entrance to the Old Town, and the ubiquitous Duke’s castle on a bluff overlooking the Sola, a small stream that passes for a river, but nothing is left of the original castle except a small tower, now obscured by trees, which is not at all impressive. Like the church, the castle tower will never make it into most tourist guidebooks.

The town is completely devoid of charm. No famous artists come here to paint. There is no house that has been preserved as the birthplace of a famous person, nor any important historical buildings. The town square is surrounded by very ordinary looking buildings, constructed during the last 200 years, and has only one building of interest: the District Court.

An ugly looking modern store built right in the middle of the town square has totally ruined any character that Auschwitz might have had. There were no thatched-roof cottages, no log houses, nor half-timbered buildings that I saw on my trip there in October 2005. The town now has a population of 50,000 and it appears that most of the residents live in high-rise apartments built during the Communist era.

There are many ordinary towns in Poland and it is only because Auschwitz has become the most famous town in the history of the Holocaust that anyone today marvels at how ordinary it is. Yet a suburb of this ordinary town is included in every package tour of Poland or Eastern Europe: an afternoon of horror at the Auschwitz concentration camp, sandwiched in between stops to see the famous salt mine and the Black Madonna, the other main tourist attractions of Poland.

Wannsee Conference where the genocide of the Jews was planned

Filed under: Uncategorized — furtherglory @ 2:47 pm

Wannsee house where the Holocaust was allegedly  planned

You can read a recent article written by Alan Dershowitz at https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/10108/the-origin-of-fake-news-in-holocaust-denial

The title of the article is The Origin of “Fake News” in Holocaust Denial

The following quote is from the article:

Begin quote

No reasonable person with a modicum of intelligence can actually believe that Hitler and his Nazis co-conspirators did not plan the mass extermination of Jews at the Wannsse Conference, and that they did not carry it out at death camps, such as Treblinka, Sorbibor, Majdanek and Auschwitz, Birkenau, as well as by SS mobile killing units that gathered Jews in such places as Babi Yar and the Ponary Woods.

End quote

He’s talking about me: I am not a reasonable person, according to Dershowitz, and I don’t even have a “modicum of intelligence” according to him.

Maybe I have a little bit more than a “modicum of intelligence” and that’s why I don’t believe in the Holocaust.

Alan Dershowitz continues on with this quote:

Begin quote

… let me be clear that I do not believe that any university should tolerate, in the name of academic freedom these falsehoods being taught in the classroom. There is not and should not be academic freedom to commit educational malpractice by presenting provable lies as acceptable facts. Universities must and do have standards: no credible university would tolerate a professor teaching that slavery did not exist, or that the Earth is flat. Holocaust denial does not meet any reasonable standard deserving the protection of academic freedom.

End quote

What he is saying, as I understand it, is that Holocaust denial should not be included in “free speech” which we still have in America, but not for long. It won’t be long before the USA becomes the 21st country that will not allow free speech about the Holocaust, although every other claim will still be allowed. In other words, believing in flying saucers will still be allowed but Holocaust denial will not be allowed.

700 at a time were sent to the Auschwitz gas chamber

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust, Uncategorized — furtherglory @ 11:59 am

My photo of Auschwitz gas chamber

My photo above shows the gas chamber in the Auschwitz main camp.

The title of my blog post today is a quote from this news article: https://www.christiancentury.org/article/how-evil-wins-and-how-beat-it

The following quote is from the news article, written by Samuel Wells:

Auschwitz [main camp] is the epitome of World War II. It was originally a Polish military camp. When western Poland was annexed by Germany, Auschwitz became an internment camp for Polish elites and political prisoners. When the Final Solution was decided upon and the extinction of European Jewry was planned in earnest, the camp began to kill people in two ways: a minority worked in hideous conditions until they dropped dead—after around two months in most cases. The majority, 700 at a time, went to the gas chamber. Five other extermination camps were opened, all in what had been western Poland, but Auschwitz was overstretched, so a second camp, Auschwitz-Birkenau, opened two miles away. Each of its four gas chambers could kill 2,000 people at a time. Railroads brought people in overcrowded carriages right into the camp. When the train emptied, 20 percent of the occupants were directed to the workers’ quarters, and the rest walked half a mile down the platform and into the gas chambers. [80% of the Jews arriving at Birkenau were gassed immediately upon arrival.]

End quote

If anyone, who is reading this, thinks that a German person would put 700 people at a time in a gas chamber, you don’t know the German people. Germans are noted for being very intelligent and very precise in everything that they do.

If the Germans had wanted to kill 700 people at a time, they would have lined them up at the edge of a pit, and shot them, so that the bodies would fall into the pit, where they would be covered over with the dirt that had been shoveled out of the pit.  In fact, the Germans DID in fact kill some of their enemies this way.

My photo of the Auschwitz gas chamber

In the photo above, the door into the gas chamber is shown in the background. The door into the oven room is shown on the left hand side. The current story of the Auschwitz gas chamber maintains that the prisoners were brought through the oven room into the gas chamber, not through the door in the background, as originally claimed.

You can read all about the Auschwitz gas chamber on my website, written before I became a Holocaust denier: http://www.scrapbookpages.com/AuschwitzScrapbook/Tour/Auschwitz1/Auschwitz08E.html

The news article continues with this quote:

Begin quote

I had often wondered why Nazis used gas to achieve their grisly purposes. After visiting the camp, I knew: by giving every prisoner a number, the inmates were dehumanized; by killing them in a sealed chamber, the murderers did not have to watch their victims die, still less meet their eyes; and by using chemicals, the bodies could be disposed of relatively straightforwardly despite the enormous numbers. If soldiers had simply machine-gunned people in the ghettos, none of these things would have been the case.

End quote

No, no, no! The prisoners were not given a number BEFORE they were allegedly gassed. If they had been given numbers, we would know exactly how many were gassed, and we would have the prisoner numbers, so that we could look up their names in the records kept by the Nazis.

Has Samuel Wells, the author of the article, ever stopped to think about how 700 dead bodies, that were stacked up to the ceiling, were removed from the gas chamber?

Allegedly, after 700 people were shoved into the gas chamber, with the babies thrown on top of the adults, the gas pellets were dropped through holes in the roof of the chamber.

The babies allegedly made scratch marks near the ceiling of the gas chamber

At Auschwitz all signs seem to omit the fact that the victims were Jewish.

Filed under: Holocaust, Uncategorized — furtherglory @ 5:25 am

You can read a news article headlined “The Persistence of Memory at Auschwitz” at http://www.thehoya.com/the-persistence-of-memory-at-auschwitz/

The title of my blog post is a quote from the news article.

The news article begins with this quote:

I spent my spring break with 32 other students from Georgetown and Seton Hill University on a Holocaust Forensics trip to Poland and Belarus. My experiences on this trip have changed me and will have a permanent place in my consciousness. What I saw gave me hope for our future, but also deeply worried me.

We spent two days in Poland and five in Belarus. Although the trip as a whole was memorable, my day in Auschwitz will forever be in my mind. Auschwitz was far more than a concentration camp; it was a complex with over 39 factories. One-and-a-half million people were sent to the complex of Auschwitz during World War II, including 1.1 million Jews, thousands of Roma, homosexuals and Soviet prisoners of war. There were almost no survivors.

End quote

This student claims that there were almost no survivors of Auschwitz, yet you can read the story of a survivor almost every day in American newspapers. Are these people all fake survivors?

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

However, what I saw at Auschwitz gave me much hope for “never again.” Not all of Auschwitz II–Birkenau — the site of slave barracks and the gas chambers — remains. Some of the land has since been sold, and regular people now have homes on the former grounds of a death camp. If you look outside the camp, you see an ordinary Polish town. There are houses, dogs barking, a church, a playground and people going about their everyday lives.

On our visit, we walked the same path that the Jews who went straight to the gas chambers took. The first crematorium, the site of the “Red House,” is now a plot of green grass surrounded by a locked chain-link fence. On this plot of land, the Nazis built the crematorium and killed 100,000 people, before destroying it to hide the evidence at the end of World War II. After they retreated, a Polish landowner used blueprints of the gas chamber to petition for a subsidy from the Polish government to rebuild his house. It took over 100,000 euros to buy back this murder site and commemorate it.

End quote

The little red house was located north of where the fourth gas chamber, called Krema V, was later built. It was completely destroyed by the Nazis and nothing remains of it.

The little red house was allegedly the site of the first gassing of the Jews at Birkenau, beginning in March 1942. The little white house was put into operation as a gas chamber in June 1942.

My photo of the location of the little white house at Auschwitz-Birkenau

The little white house was located just west of the Central Sauna, which was built in 1943 to house a shower room and numerous disinfection chambers used to kill lice in the clothing of the prisoners.  I believe that the “little white house” was used as a shower room before the Central Sauna was built.  The “little white house” was not built by the Nazis — it was the home of a Polish peasant before it was taken by the Nazis to be used for showers.

Another view of the location of the little white house at Auschwitz-Birkenau

The little red house was located north of where the fourth gas chamber, called Krema V, was built. It was completely destroyed by the Nazis and nothing remains of it.

The little red house was the site of the first gassing of the Jews at Auschwitz-Birkenau, beginning in March 1942. The little white house was put into operation as a gas chamber in June 1942. The two largest gas chambers at Birkenau were not finished until the spring of 1943.

Pressburger, a survivor of Birkenau, said that the gassings always took place at night, never during the day time, because the victims would scream or try to escape from the gas chamber. As quoted by Laurence Rees, Pressburger said, “We only saw the bodies the next morning piled beside the pits.”

Pressburger worked in a special unit of prisoners whose job it was to bury the bodies of the victims who had been gassed in the little white house and the little red house. He said that the SS men brought the bodies to the burial pits during the night and the next morning, his special unit had to bury them.

Oscar Groening, an SS man who worked at Birkenau, also said that the gassing of the Jews in the two farmhouses was done at night. As told by Laurence Rees, Groening said that he had witnessed a gassing one night after he had been awakened by an alarm because a number of Jews had escaped as they were being marched to the gas chamber. He saw the lights on in one of the farm houses, and seven or eight bodies out in front of the building. He assumed that these were the escapees who had been caught and shot.

Groening was “overcome by curiosity,” according to Rees, and he and his comrades stayed around to watch what was going on at the farm house. They saw an SS man, wearing a gas mask, pour Zyklon-B pellets through a hatch in the side of the cottage wall. They heard screaming for a minute, followed by silence. Then an SS man went up to the door, and looked through a peephole to see if all the prisoners were dead.

Barnes & Noble, where you can buy some Holocaust deniers

The Holocaust deniers on Amazon are only the visible part of the iceberg. There are other sites, such as iBookstore, and other outlets, such as the large U.S. bookstore Barnes & Noble, where you can buy some Holocaust deniers.

A new generation of young people is learning about Anne Frank

Note that the photo included in the news article was taken from the middle of the canal that runs past the Anne Frank house. I was standing on the bank of the canal, risking my life, as I took my photo of the house. Earlier, I had taken a trip on a boat, down the canal, hoping that I could get a photo of the house, but the boat sped past the house, going down the middle of the canal.

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

Museums that preserve and present the truth are also fighting revisionists and Holocaust deniers who are increasingly vocal on the internet, and who are confusing the public, at a time when firsthand accounts of the Holocaust are fading.

End quote

I am one of those revisionists and Holocaust deniers who are confusing the public.

This quote is also from the news article:

Begin quote

Early this month, the museum announced that it would expand the educational facilities and visitor entrance by 20 percent, redesign the entry halls and enhance exhibitions to provide more historical context. The project will cost around 10 million euros (about $10.7 million) and unfold during the next two years while the museum remains open.

[…]

Phase 1 of the [Anne Frank house] redesign began this month, when curators installed an introduction video at the start of the museum tour. It underscores the basics, explaining that Frank was born in Germany and her family fled to Amsterdam when she was 4 after the election of the National Socialist Party [Nazi].

“Germany became an anti-Semitic dictatorship in which opponents feared for their lives and Jews were systematically persecuted,” the narrator explains in the video. “The Nazi leader was Adolf Hitler.”

End quote

Wait a minute! That’s not the whole story! Anne Frank’s father was a fugitive from justice because he had been caught cheating his banking customers. He and his criminal brother tried to escape trial by going to America on the last ship that was rescuing criminal Jews. Ottos’s brother got in, but Ottto was turned away. That’s when he high-tailed it to Amsterdam to escape prison.

The late Elie Wiesel is back in the news as a Holocaust victim

Filed under: Holocaust, Uncategorized — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 9:57 am

I wrote about Elie Wiesel on my website, before I became a Holocaust denier: https://www.scrapbookpages.com/Buchenwald/Liberation2.html

ElieWiesel.jpg

Elie.jpg

According to this news article, Elie Wiesel is back in the news as a Holocaust victim, in spite of the fact that he finally admitted, on his death bed, that he was never in any concentration camp. http://www.swindonadvertiser.co.uk/news/15167923.Sharing_the_lessons_from_Auschwitz___a_great_responsibility_on_young_shoulders/

The news article begins with the following quote:

Begin quote

“HAND in hand we followed the crowd. An SS non-commissioned officer came to meet us, a truncheon in his hand.

“He gave the order: ‘Men to the left. Women to the right.’

“Eight words spoken quietly, indifferently, without emotion. Eight short, simple words.

“Yet that was the moment when I parted from my mother.

“I had not time to think, but already I felt the pressure of my father’s hand: we were alone.”

Those are the haunting words of Elie Wiesel, a survivor of the Holocaust who, as a young boy, was taken to the notorious Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration and death camp.

End quote

The news article continues with this quote:

Begin quote

One million Jews, 64,000 Poles, 21,000 Sinti and Roma, 15,000 Soviet prisoners of war and around 12,000 victims of other groups – murdered.

Who were these people? How did such a crime against humanity happen? How many others had to turn their heads or willingly collaborate in the process? And how do we ensure that in the future, the mantra ‘never again’ becomes more than just words?

These were just some of the questions going through the minds of 200 students from across the South West last month as they stood on the same spot where Elie Wiesel had been so cruelly parted from his mother more than 70 years ago.

End quote

Are there no fact checkers on newspapers any more? My first job on a newspaper, after I had graduated from Journalism school, was to check the facts in every news story before the paper went to press.

It was my job to yell “Stop the press” if I spotted a serious error. This is a serious error because Elie Wiesel finally admitted, just before he died, that he was never in any camp. He was hiding out in his home town, when the Jews were sent to camps.

I wrote this blog post about Elie Wiesel and his lack of a tattoo: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2017/02/07/did-the-late-elie-wiesel-have-a-concentration-camp-tattoo-or-not/

Elie always refused to show his non-existent  tattoo. The lack of a tattoo is proof that he was never in a camp.
