bashing the heads of babies and desecrating cemeteries, the two most frequent crimes of the Nazis (Updated)

This quote is from a news article which you can read in full at http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/oskar-groning-trial-93yearold-auschwitz-guard-admits-he-was-morally-complicit-in-holocaust-crimes-10193173.html

Begin quote

A frail, white-haired former Nazi SS guard has described in harrowing detail how he watched one of his comrades batter to death the baby of a Jewish prisoner at the Auschwitz extermination camp and admitted that was “morally complicit” in the crimes against humanity committed during the Holocaust.

93-year-old Oskar Gröning, who served in the SS at Auschwitz from 1942 until 1944, shook visibly as he told a court in the German city of Lüneburg how, shortly after he arrived at the Nazi death camp, he was dispatched to the so-called “ramp” where prisoners were selected either for work or immediate death in the gas chambers.

“There was a little baby left lying behind on the ramp, after the main group was marched away, and it was crying,” Gröning told the court, “I turned round and saw one of my comrades pick up the child. He grabbed it by the legs and smashed it again and again against the iron side of a truck until it was silent – when I saw that my world broke down,” he added.

End quote

Oskar Gröning will soon be put on trial under the “common plan” ex-post-facto law, which dictates that if any German person was anywhere near a Nazi camp, during the Holocaust, they are guilty of every crime ever committed at the camp, whether the crime has ever been proven or not.

Continue reading my original post:

If you’ve ever read anything about the Holocaust, or seen a movie based on the Holocaust, you know that every Holocaust survivor claims to have witnessed a German soldier kill a baby by bashing its head against a tree or the side of a train.  If you believe the stories of the survivors, this was the most universal atrocity committed by the Germans against the Jews, except for desecrating every Jewish cemetery in Poland.

In a recent news article, I read about a group of students, who will be the future military leaders of America. They visited the last remaining synagogue in the town of Auschwitz, then toured the main Auschwitz concentration camp, after which they did some work in a Jewish cemetery.

These quotes are from the news article which you can read here:

On their last day in Oswiecim [Auschwitz], the group worked in a Jewish cemetery. Although, no Holocaust victims are buried there, the Germans desecrated the cemetery that dates from the 18th century.

[…]

[a student] recalled the Auschwitz guide’s story about a German bashing an infant’s head against a concrete wall. “How can someone do that to a human being?” he asked.

Note that this story was told by an Auschwitz guide.  In the story, it was a concrete wall, not a tree or a train.  Could this be the story of Wilhelm Boger, who bashed the head of a young boy and then ate the apple that the boy was carrying?  I previously blogged about this story here.  Did the guide give the name of the basher so that the students could do some research and make up their own minds about the truth of the story?

There was a time when I believed the head bashing stories, but then I heard one too many account of a German soldier bashing the head of a baby. There was even a story of a head bashing at Treblinka where there was a fake train station built to calm the fears of the Jews.  Did it make any sense to kill a baby right in front of the Jews who were being told that they would be taking a shower before being transported to the East to work?  The German army was noted for having strict disciple — except for bashing babies, which was apparently allowed.

Now I am beginning to doubt the desecrating of Jewish cemeteries stories.  Especially when I read these two atrocities told in the same newspaper article.  Are the Jews over-playing their hand in telling these stories?  I say Enough Already!

I previously blogged about the stories of desecrating cemeteries here. Read all the way to the end of the blog post cited above and you will learn about the cemetery in Krakow which was allegedly desecrated by the Germans.

My question is: Why do American students have to go to Poland to learn about alleged German atrocities during World War II? Shouldn’t they be learning about American atrocities so that these crimes will not be repeated by Americans in the future?

  1. There were a lot of anti-war Americans, who were not in the least concerned about the torture and deaths in the nazi death camps; They could care less if our mother country and our early laws, and ways of lif e be trampled under the nazi boot; it was a different story when the japs almost whipped our ass!

  2. I was told one time that the nazi assassins raped handsome teenage boys, killed them, and then cut off their penises, and testicles, and preserved them in large jars of alcohol. after the war, they were buried in a secret place.

      This is completely untrue. In Nazi Germany, the penalty for rape was death. This penalty was the law, whether it was the rape of boys or girls.

  3. I think youll find it was the ss, not german army.
    The totemkopftbande or something were the camp guards, and they were truly fuc*ing awful people:/
    The wehrmacht was made of ordinary folk fighting for their country, the ss… they were just evil.
    Ive seen other stories about ss guards throwing jewish babies from balconies/towers so others can use them as target practice.
    It always astounds me the potential of human evil😦

  4. And no, no atrocities are right, I speak out against the American and Russian atrocities in WW2 and Vietnam as well. But the SS soldiers should not be spared or defended…

  5. Are you kidding me with this, the Jewish people knew that when there family members went down that line that it would be the last time they would see them. The prisoners knew they were being killed off slowly by the SS my Grandmother was part of the resistance to liberate these camps, I find it extremely plausible that something like “head bashing” happened. If the SS were capable to line people up outside mass graves and try and shoot them before the liberators found the camp to cover their tracks, only stopping the massacres because they needed bullets to try and fight the Ally advance. Then they could be able to be that brutal and inhumane to “useless” bodies… This shit makes me sick that people are able to stand there and say none of this shit ever happened. I fucking hope you non believers burn in the deepest depths of hell with the Bastards that committed these atrocities..

    • Do you believe that the Germans cut the hands off babies in World War One?

      Comment by furtherglory — November 27, 2012 @ 5:15 am

    • Amen to that😦
      I cant believe theres even such thing as neo-nazis

      Like dont get me wrong, the ss uniforms were aesthetically appealing, but that is the only thing ive ever liked about them. I think its disgusting that the camp guaards were allowed to live at all. Anyone who commits such attrocities deserves to be brutally murdered (and screw the ‘human rights’ that supposedly incorporates them)

      • I have replied to your comment on a new blog post, which I put up today.

      • “I think its disgusting that the camp guaards were allowed to live at all. Anyone who commits such attrocities deserves to be brutally murdered (and screw the ‘human rights’ that supposedly incorporates them)”

        Atrocities ‘documented’ by the Psychological Warfare Division (probably a division focused on accuracy and truth) and then confessed during a ball-crushing ‘trial’.

        I can’t believe how stupid people to reject war propaganda from the equation and believe ALL what was reported, told, testified, photographed and filmed. There was deceitful propaganda during all the wars that America took part in – most people admit that – except for WW2, ‘the moral war’, ‘the last good war’, ‘the war that saved the world from tyrany and world genocide’, ‘the war that gave birth to Auschwitz’. In spite of all that vital importance to the contemporary Western values, most people can’t imagine war propaganda could be used by the Allies during that war too. They refuse to even think their values are based on war lies similar to the lies which are spread about enemies in every war. There is is nothing more commonplace than horror propaganda during war. And that’s also true for WW2, even if people don’t like that.

        “Truth is always the first war casualty. The emotional disturbances and distortions in historical writing are greatest in wartime.” – Historian, sociologist and criminologist Prof. Harry Elmer Barnes

        “Every war when it comes, or before it comes, is represented not as a war but as an act of self-defense against a homicidal maniac.” – George Orwell

    • I believe in an afterlife, but I cannot believe these Nazi guards, who were gassers, shooters, and head smashers, can be absolved of all their sins just to appease Christ. It seems as if we are being held hostage, because he went to the cross for our sins. Maybe i’m a doubting Thomas, but I do not think The Bible is clear on this subject.

        The Nazi guards at the camps did not gas or shoot people, nor did they smash heads. These are lies told by the Jews.

  6. American atrocities are ok so long as they are committed on behalf of a certain sh*tty little country in the Levant
