Gen. Eisenhower predicted Holocaust denial long before it started

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust, World War II — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 8:26 am

In the news today, I learned that House Speaker John Boehner sent a letter to the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) in which he compared the work of MEMRI to Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower’s efforts to prevent Holocaust denial after American troops discovered the Ohrdruf labor camp, a sub-camp of the Buchenwald concentration camp, on April 4, 1945.

This quote is from the article in The Washington Times:

“Eisenhower ordered all available American troops to go and witness the horrors he’d just seen. He also forced German citizens and officials from nearby towns to do the same,” Mr. Boehner said in the letter.

“He understood that there must be a record, first-hand evidence and incontrovertible answers to those who would deny the Holocaust.”

Civilians forced to enter barracks to view bodies of prisoners who died from typhus

Gen. Eisenhower was worried that future generations would not believe the horror that American soldiers had seen at Ohrdruf. Civilians in the town of Ohrdruf, who had nothing to do with the camp, were ordered to enter the lice-infested barracks to view the dead bodies. After their forced visit, the mayor of the town and his wife went home — and killed themselves!

Notice in the first photo that some of the bodies appear to be partially burned.  The Germans burned the bodies in an effort to stop the typhus epidemic; they had no DDT nor vaccine to prevent the epidemic.  Did Gen. Eisenhower order that all the civilians in the nearby town should be vaccinated?  No, of course not.  He was only concerned with spreading propaganda that would cause future generations to hate the Germans for all time.  How many of those civilians got typhus as a result of being exposed to this disease without being vaccinated?

For all of his efforts, Gen. Eisenhower did not succeed in stopping Holocaust denial.  If anything, he made it worse.

  3. yes there were dead bodies aplenty but ! NO SYSTEMATIC GASSINGS the people forced to see these bodies saw more from allied bombings …. the bodies seen here died of typhus and starvation ….none were gassed !! . the truth will come out …
    all truth has three steps
    first it ridiculed
    second it vehemently and violently opposed
    then it is accepted as self evident .et al

    • The big lie told about Ohrdruf is that the prisoners were burned alive. A huge photo of the remains of the burned bodies at Ohrdruf hangs in the US Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC. This is the first photo that you see when you step off the elevator into the first display room in the Museum. College history professors believe that Jews were burned alive at Ohrdruf. I am withholding names to protect the ignorant.

  4. to: who+dares+wings,
    Just a minor correction: That guy’s name was C.D. Jackson (Charles Douglas Jackson), not “J.D.”. Everything else appears to be correct. Please, don’t take it personal. The enemies of mankind are catching any wrong or misspelled word to prove us wrong. We cannot afford to be sloppy, while making references or quating the names or evidence we have

  5. J.D. Jackson and William S. Paley, the only two Americans in Sir Bruce Lockhart’s elite and very secret PWE (Political Warfare Executive) had a lot to do with Gen. Dwight Eisenhower’s filmed visits to the German concentration camps. J.D. Jackson is even captured on film at Buchenwald presenting the citizens of the town of Weimar with false evidence of Nazi depravity- shrunken heads, a human skin lampshade etc. J. D. Jackson was Eisenhower’s friend and an intelligence advisor. He was at various times an editor at Time, LIFE and Fortune magazines. He launched Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty and was an indefatigable promoter of “The American Century.” What was that? It was Disneyland in France. Go see Monsieur Mickey and shake his four fingered hand. The Holocaust was a psyops. Lt. Col. Murray C. Bernays was these psyche warrior’s legal eagle at Nuremburg. I’ve tried and have found nothing on this man’s post war career. Both Eisenhower and Kennedy made cryptic speeches about behind-the-scenes power. We’re supposed to connect the dots and believe they we’re on the citizen’s side and not the side of whatever it was they warned us about. This seems like even more disinfo since it was probably that power which put them both in the presidency.

    • Gen. Eisenhower only made one visit to a camp, and that was his visit to Ohrdruf. He was in the area, looking at the Nazi gold that had been stashed in a nearby mine and his interpreter convinced him to go on a side trip to Ohrdruf. Gen. Eisenhower couldn’t have cared less about the concentration camps — except for their propaganda value. He didn’t even mention the name of the camp in his book.

      If you follow the link to my web site page about Ohrdruf, you will see photos of Gen. Eisenhower looking at the gold and art treasures that were later confiscated by America as the spoils of war. You will see Benjamin B. Ferencz in several of the photos at Ohrdruf and in the mine. In 1945, Ferencz had been transferred from General Patton’s army to the newly created War Crimes Branch of the U.S. Army, where his job was to gather evidence for future trials of German war criminals. He was taking notes at Ohrdruf for future charges at Nuremberg.

      I am aware of the false evidence at Buchenwald (the shrunken heads and the alleged human lampshades) but thanks to Gen. Eisenhower, people the world over still believe in this stuff. He was the one who ordered as many soldiers as possible to visit Ohrdruf, Buchenwald and Dachau. Now those soldiers are out on the lecture circuit, telling school kids about what they saw.

        • There is reason to believe that Gen. Eisenhower went to Ohrdruf because the Germans were testing an atomic bomb near there. There was a German army base near the Ohrdruf camp during World War II and it was still there when I went there in 1999. The whole area was off limits. That is why there is no Memorial Site at Ohrdruf, as there is at every other spot where Jews died in World War II. The motive behind two World Wars was to destroy Germany forever, not just the country but the German people and German culture. The plan is in the last stages now and will be accomplished in a few years.

          You are right about America being perpetually at war. But has America ever made a formal declaration of war against any country? How many times has America violated the Crimes against Peace ex post facto law under which the Nazis were convicted and hanged?
