“Never again” scratched on a gas chamber wall…

The things you learn on the Internet!  In fact, what did we do before the Internet changed our lives?  I got my first computer that had a modem for dial-up access to the Internet in 1993.  In the first few weeks, I used up an entire ream of paper, printing out stuff that I had read. Then I realized that I didn’t have to print out everything I had read; it would be there forever, or at least for a long time.

Today I read this in an article written by James Zumwalt on 9/19/10:

A sobering piece of evidence of this evil were the words “Never Again”—scratched into a gas chamber wall by a Jewish victim minutes before death as a warning to future generations.   

I have personally never seen these words on a gas chamber wall, but they could have been put on one of the gas chambers that were blown up by the Nazis. No, wait a minute!  Why did this Jew write his message in English?   Wouldn’t he have written the words “Never Again” in German, or Yiddish, or Polish, or Hungarian?

The photo below was taken inside the gas chamber at Auschwitz by Simon Robertson on January 12, 2004.  When I went to visit Auschwitz for the second time in October 2005, the scratches had been sanded off or painted over and I did not get to see them.

Scratches on the wall of the Auschwitz gas chamber

The Jews who were gassed at Majdanek allegedly scratched the walls with their fingernails, but when I saw the Majdanek gas chamber in October 1998, I did not see the scratches.

Zumwalt’s article also includes this quote:

The Mufti of Jerusalem, Hajj Amin Al Housseini, collaborated with Nazi death merchants Adolf Eichmann and Heinrich Himmler to help expedite the extermination process.

The Grand Mufti opposed the Zionists; he did not want the Jews in Europe to move to Palestine. He came to visit Hitler in Berlin in 1936 and begged him not to help the German Jews get into Palestine.

Adolf Eichmann’s deputy, Dieter Wisliceny, gave this testimony at the Nuremberg IMT:

The Mufti was one of the initiators of the systematic extermination of European Jewry and had been a collaborator and adviser of Eichmann and Himmler in the execution of this plan. … He was one of Eichmann’s best friends and had constantly incited him to accelerate the extermination measures. I heard him say, accompanied by Eichmann, he had visited incognito the gas chamber of Auschwitz.

Gas chamber in the Auschwitz main camp

I took the photo above in the gas chamber at the Auschwitz main camp in October, 2005.  Wow!  To think that I’ve walked in the footsteps of the Grand Mufti!

  1. Eichmann had first contact with the Mufti and his gang when visiting Palestine in November 1937 and so their friendship and cooperation started,

  3. Why do you let Oklahoma Rose post long copy-and-pastes from her blog? That is letting your blog be used as an outlet for other bloggers.

    • The link to her blog was on her name, so my blog software didn’t classify it as spam. That’s why her blog post got through. After it was already up, I decided not to delete it. I have approved other blog posts that have a link to a Holocaust denier blog, so I have to be consistent, and allow both sides to have their say.

  4. I have no idea how they get away making up lies like they scratched a message in the gas chamber.

    It doesn’t even make sense to write “never again” during the Holocaust.

    • You are correct: “Never Again” was not a slogan until after the Holocaust. I wonder how many English-speakers were gassed at Auschwitz.

      Comment by furtherglory — September 23, 2010 @ 7:41 am

      • Thousands, perhaps. Many Holocaust victims were well-educated Nazi Party opponents, thought I doubt someone actually wrote “Never Again” while being suffocated.

  5. The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Hajj Amin Al Housseini was walking down the gas-chamber, while it was on the scheduled maintenance. That makes perfect sense to me. However, I have always believed that it was Mahmud Ahmadinejad who had designed and built those gas chambers, since he is full-time Anti-Semite and a PHD in civil engineering in his spare time.

  6. From “Red Flight Through Memory”: Walking in the footsteps of the Mufti was more impressive and impactive than standing in a concrete bunker where 10 million + humans were executed because they breathed? Because they believed in God? Because they were hard working, intelligent, industrious, generous, and took seriously their religious commandment of szedaka (charity being an easily understood meaning)? The poem on the foot of the Statue of Liberty was penned by an honored and honorable Jewess. How do you feel when you see photos and stories from the 9/11 Attacks? Real superficial response to the type evil you witnessed the remains of. Regardless of your opinion of the article you read, your response to that article sickening. To bad you didn’t see fit to make an intelligent conversation out of the article sent to you, opened it up for debate, in lieu of a comment that negates the agony and the pain of genocide and the memories of both survivors and the heirs. The actual tally of victims on a global level as a result of the Nazi Holocaust topped 60 Million!!! All across Europe, entire towns were emptied of Jews and the buildings burned, bulldozed, and erased for all time. Death camps were built atop Jewish cemetaries and the inmates used to wipe out their own homes and businesses before their own “erasure”. South America and Africa continued the carnage, and safe haven for the Nazi Elite. Any number of messages were scrawled and clawed, burned, and otherwise marked on walls, on concrete, in the crematoriums, on stone markers in any language or derivative thereof the victim could recall in an effort to scream “PLEASE REMEMBER ME. PLEASE DON’T FORGET. PLEASE DON’T LET IT HAPPEN. NEVER AGAIN.!!!” Jews, including women, have always been some of the most intelligent people on earth. Unfortunately, we have also been some of the most damned tolerant and forgiving. Even in the face of tyranny.

    • Yes, Oklahoma Rose, NEVER AGAIN.
      We will NEVER AGAIN allow you to dupe us into your stories. You, the most “hard working, intelligent, industrious, generous people of the world” will NEVER AGAIN dupe us into another war with each other. The cause of your problem is that you are claiming to be better than everyone else. You are most intelligent and we are stupid animals. You are most industrious (as far as creating money out of thin air) and we live from paycheck to paycheck.
      Hard working? Oh yes, at the Banks of England, et al. Most generous?
      Why Shakespeare’s “The Merchant of Venice” comes to mind?
      I am not even going to discuss the rubbish you have wrote: “All across Europe, entire towns were emptied of Jews and the buildings burned, bulldozed, and erased for all time”. You need to see a doctor, or better a psychiatrist.
      But, you are really a threat to civilization as we know it. You creating enemies at will. There was Hitler and after him many other “Hitlers” followed. Gamal Abdel Nasser was a “new Hitler”, then Saddam Hussein. We have a new “Hitler” in Latin America and his name is Hugo Chavez. And “Hitler” du jour is Iranian President Mahmud Ahmadinejad. I would recommend you to read (if you can, of course) a book written by Douglas Reed “The Controversy of Zion” Maybe, you would be able to understand how London’s “The Times” journalist and Iranian civil engineer came to the same conclusion on the matter?
      And don’t forget! Israel committed war crimes by dropping white phosphorus on the children in Gaza in January of 2009. This crime did override all of you “holocaust” claims, which nobody cares anymore. The zionists are committing war crimes, right now, period.

      • The statement of entire towns being razed, Gasan, is as much documented history as the rubbish you quote from. White phosphorus was not dropped on the children of Gaza in Jan., 2009. Napalm was dropped on the terrorists of Gaza during recent wars won by the Israeli Army which is THE best trained, and THE most qualified on the planet. Unlike the policy of Arab terrorists, CHILDREN were not the target of “war crimes” actions by Israel. Hamas, Hezbollah, and assorted other radical terrorists groups were. The fact that you have children you seem to believe are more holy and ordained in the eyes of God than the children of the people you slaughter on American and Israeli soil is a sure sign that you, not I, have the mental problem. I am not about to debate the state of my mind with a moron. To do so would be to further aid you in showing to the world precisely how dangerous and idiot you truly are, which would thus further your glory over your ignorance and I would hate so to do that your obviously fragile penile ego which can’t cope nor accept, nor respect either the opinions of or the superior intellect of a WOMAN, never mind a JEWESS. Get your head out of your ass and you will both see and hear better. Might even absorb more of the vital once your douche your brain.

        • I have read the post from great JEWESS with superior intellect.
          I laughed.

  7. Tying the Mufti into the holocaust hoax, all for the cause of European Jewish colonialism in the Mideast, aka Zionism.
