91-year-old WWII veteran breaks his silence about the Dachau massacre

Filed under: Dachau, Germany, Holocaust, World War II — Tags: , — furtherglory @ 10:38 am

Most news articles, about the American soldiers who liberated the Dachau concentration camp on April 29, 1945, mention that these veterans have never talked to their families about the horror of Dachau.  Now one of the Dachau liberators, Don Ritzenthaler, has broken his silence and has told his grandson about what really happened at Dachau when the camp was liberated.

Gatehouse at Dachau concentration camp, 1945

This quote is from an article written by John Deem on May 25, 2012 in the Lake Norman Citizen newspaper:

Grandpa Ritz has never been able to talk about Dachau, other than to say he was there, and that what he saw was horrible. After reading about the place and what the Germans did to their mostly Jewish prisoners, I wasn’t surprised that the mention of Dachau rendered my typically effusive grandfather mute.

But there always was something in Grandpa’s reaction that made me wonder: Was he haunted by more than just the ghosts of what he’d seen on April 29, 1945?

According to the Official Report by the U.S. Army, there were 31,432 prisoners in the main camp on the day the camp was liberated.  Among the survivors were 2,539 Jews who had been brought to the main camp from some of the 123 sub-camps just a few weeks before the liberators arrived.

Most of the prisoners in the sub-camps of Dachau were Jews who had survived Auschwitz and had been brought on trains to Germany after Auschwitz was abandoned by the Germans in January 1945. Other Jews at Dachau on the day of liberation had been brought there from three Lithuanian ghettos in the Summer of 1944. The American liberators got most of their information about the Dachau main camp from these Jews who had only recently arrived and were eager to tell their stories.

Throughout its 12-year history, Dachau was mainly a camp for political prisoners, including Communists, Social Democrats, trade union leaders, spies, resistance fighters, and others who were considered “enemies of the state.”  Also among the prisoners were Catholic priests, common criminals, Gypsy men, homosexuals, and asocials. Dachau was not a death camp for the genocide of the Jews.

This quote is from the article written by John Deem:

“We were some of the first ones in,” he [Don Ritzenthaler] recalled. “It was a terrible place.”

We’d heard that much before, and nothing more. But I always sensed that there was something more. I even had a pretty good idea just what that something was.

“After what we saw, we shot any German guards we saw on sight,” Grandpa [Ritzenthaler] continued.

The shooting of the “German guards” and a few Wehrmacht soldiers who were dragged out of a military hospital at Dachau, an event known as the Dachau massacre, was kept secret for over 40 years.

The article by John Deem includes this quote:

I now knew that for 67 years, the uncharacteristically violent actions of this uncommonly gentle man had only multiplied the horror of what he’d seen, because he had become a participant in it.

Of course, most of us would have done the same thing. But leaving hell with Satan’s blood on our hands makes us the Devil’s kin, even if it’s as distant cousins. It means we’ve surrendered to the very hate that so repulsed us in the first place.

While he’s never said so, I can’t help but believe that this nexus of revulsion and revenge triggered something unrecognizable, something uncontrollable, in Grandpa, and it frightens him still.

Here is the full story on the liberation of Dachau:

On April 29, 1945, SS 2nd Lt. Heinrich Wicker surrendered the camp to the 42nd Rainbow Division of the US Seventh Army, which had found the camp on its way to take the city of Munich, 18 kilometers to the south. Accompanied by Red Cross representative Victor Maurer, 2nd Lt. Wicker surrendered the Dachau concentration camp to Brigadier General Henning Linden, commander of the 42nd Rainbow Division, under a white flag of truce.

The 45th Thunderbird Division of the US Seventh Army also participated in the liberation of Dachau, arriving at the nearby SS garrison before the 42nd Division approached the main entrance on the south side of the Dachau complex where 2nd Lt. Wicker was waiting to surrender the camp.

Before reaching the concentration camp, the 45th Thunderbird Division had discovered an abandoned train, with no engine, on a branch railroad line which at that time ran from the Dachau station along Freisinger Street in the direction of the camp. Inside the 39 train cars were the corpses of prisoners who had been evacuated from Buchenwald on April 7, 1945 and, because of heavy bombing and strafing by Allied planes in the last days of the war, had not reached Dachau until three weeks later, two days before the American soldiers arrived.

Most of the regular SS guards and the administrative staff had fled from the camp the next day and there was no one left to oversee the burial of the bodies. No precise figures are available, but the train had started out with approximately 4,500 to 6,000 prisoners on board and between 1,300 and 2,600 had made it to Dachau still alive. Some of the dead had been buried along the way, or left in rows alongside the tracks. The gruesome sight of the death train, with some of the corpses in the open cars riddled by bullets, so affected the young soldiers of the 45th Thunderbird Division that they executed Waffen-SS soldiers stationed at the Dachau garrison after they had surrendered.

Upon entering the camp after the surrender, the American liberators, and the news reporters accompanying them, were horrified to discover over 900 dying prisoners in the infirmary barracks. According to the court testimony of the camp doctor, as many as 400 prisoners were dying of disease each day in the final days before the liberation.

Accompanied by Communist political prisoners, who served as guides, the Americans toured the prison camp and were shown the building, just outside the barbed wire enclosure, which housed the homicidal gas chamber disguised as a shower room. The Americans heard eye-witness accounts from Dachau survivors who said that prisoners had been gassed to death in the fake shower room; they also heard stories of how prisoners had been shoved into the crematory ovens while still alive. Bodies of fully-clothed dead inmates were found piled inside the new crematorium building and many more naked corpses were piled up outside. Outside the disinfection chambers, there was a huge pile of clothing waiting to be fumigated with Zyklon-B gas pellets.

Waffen SS soldiers, still wearing battle fatigue uniforms, were sent to Dachau to help with the surrender of the camp

The so-called “guards”, who were killed by the Americans, were German and Hungarian SS troops who had been sent from the battlefield to help with the surrender of the camp.  The men, who were killed by the American liberators, were completely innocent, but were murdered in cold blood by the Americans who didn’t bother to ask questions before shooting anyone they saw who was not dressed in a prison uniform.

It is good that some of the Americans involved in the Dachau massacre are now admitting what they did.  Here is one last quote from the article by the grandson of Don Ritzenthaler:

What I pray, though, is that he dies knowing he was nothing like the Germans who acted as Satan’s lackeys at Dachau. If he had been like them, he wouldn’t have shot them, because he wouldn’t have given a damn.

I agree that, if Don Ritzenthaler had been like the Germans at Dachau, he would not have shot the “guards” who were wearing battle fatigues or the Wehrmacht soldiers who were recovering from war wounds in a hospital.  He would not have shot anyone, after the Army that he was fighting with, had accepted the surrender of a camp that held mostly political prisoners.

  1. There were, of course, no gas chambers.

    What the Americans and other believed was what they were told. They never saw any gas chambers in operation, and so their belief was due to propaganda started probably by the British. The British, who hated the Germans as much as the Jews did, were broadcasting propaganda about Germans gassing people as early as 1943 – Anne Frank wrote about it in her diary while she was still in hiding.

    Autopsies of the prisoners at Dachau later showed that none of the deaths were due to being gassed, and the shower room “gas chambers” were proven to have been just shower rooms. There was a fumigation chamber that was mis-labeled as a gas chamber, but this has since been corrected.

      Yes, Virginia, there were gas chambers. There was a sign right on the door which said “gas chamber” There was a skull and crossbones on the door.

      Scroll down, on this page of my website, to see a gas chamber door: http://www.scrapbookpages.com/DachauScrapbook/GasChamber/disinfection01.html

      This gas chamber was used to kill lice in the clothing of the prisoners. It was used to save lives.

  2. My husbands grandfather was a Liberator and is now 91 as he was 20 years old at the time they entered Dachau. I had the opportunity to speak with him recently and he is now ready to share his stories with me. I am curious to know if there are any other surviving vets that may have been there. My email is sfd.o.c.events@gmail.com
    I truly thank all of you and pray for all who have had to endure this.
    Thank you

      If he still remembers the voluntary surrender of Dachau to the Americans, ask him if he remembers who killed the man who surrendered the camp.

  5. You are the worst kind of mindless sheep to ever be poked by a stick and say BAH. Or should I say Heil Hell or can I wipe your misdirected ass please furer bend me over. We are Hitlers Wives or boys. Ill quit shaking after my next night of drugs (yes i misspelled it because it should never be said again beyond a joke of stupidity). My Grandfather liberated that camp after beating the germans in Africa. Then sent to liberate Dachau. I can’t imagine the mass murder that he learned to live with in the street as bodies rotted and the smell wafted along….while towns people thought we don’t know its just death? The ss where selected for there lack of self determinism and ability for no ability in the case of these camps. My Grandfather was a feeling man that helped people for the rest of his life despite having seen things he would only sparingly relate to me. I had to learn the real truth with real research. Im glad they were forced to see this and bury all the dead. You mindless, peace of meat.

  6. Aside from some of their low numbered allies, the Germans were the most, if not only, honorable soldiers in recent memory and possibly ever. Unfortunately both the Communists ad the Western Allies(all-lies) were already completely owned by the kikejew bankers, to whom rules do not apply. The Holohoax is the sickest greatest lie ever concocted and to this very day keeps fraudulently extracting billions of shekels from the slavish goyim, which is why this is the only event in history that cannot be questioned, countless nations imprison anyone that even doubts the precise number of the satanic 6,000,000 total. Meanwhile well over 6,000,000 war crimes were committed upon the entire populace of Germany both during and after the war. Nevermind the 66,000,000 White Russians Christian civilians savagely massacred by the jewish Bolsheviks and Communist Soviets whose leadership was over 85% jewish, not Russian. This menace was Hitler’s only concern, but the other countries refused to fight Communism with him because all where controlled by jews, just like the Weimar Republic had been not long ago, a filthy degenerate cesspit controlled by parasitic jews. When the host expels it’s blood sucking parasite, the host begins to heal and the sickness disappears, which is exactly what occurred in Germany. This led to international jewry openly declaring war on Germany via the jew owned New York Times front page. Years before any actual War began. Everyone involved in World War Two lost, except the jews. They had the least deaths and were the only winners. Ask yourself, if the alleged holocaust actually occurred, what type of sick minded people would thank the very peoples that saved them from the brink of extinction by openly taking over every one of their savior’s countries and destroying each and every one of them in every way imaginable? Neverending Degeneracy, 3rd World Immigration, Economic Destruction, Dumbing Down Education, Slowly Genociding the entire White Race. I’d dare to wager that any non-jew allied troop involved in WWII is absolutely disgusted at what has become of their once beloved country, without exception. The jews might’ve labelled them the “Greatest Generation” as a cruel inside joke amongst themselves when in fact a much more honest and succinct title would be the “Greatest Degeneration” Thanks jews!

    • Much respect to you Semi Antite for speaking the truth. Nobody has ever even heard of one of the greatest mass murderers of all time Jewish head of the NKVD Genrikh Yagoda, who is responsible for the death of at least 10 million Europeans. As Nobel prize-winning author Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn says: “You must understand, the leading Bolsheviks who took over Russia were not Russians. They hated Russians. They hated Christians. Driven by ethnic hatred they tortured and slaughtered millions of Russians without a shred of human remorse. It cannot be overstated. Bolshevism committed the greatest human slaughter of all time. The fact that most of the world is ignorant and uncaring about this enormous crime is proof that the global media is in the hands of the perpetrators.”

      • Jesus to the Satanic Jews:
        John 8:44 (KJV)
        Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

        Revelation 2:9 (KJV)
        I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.

        Comment by Theodor Casella — March 2, 2016 @ 10:27 pm

        • Theador, you took both of those versus out of context. In john 8:44, jesus is talking to the pharasies who are trying to trap jesus in his words. Jesus says that abraham ( one of the fathers of the jews) would never do that.
          You need to understand that the disciples of jesus were jews! They were great people who did miracles through jesus! So don’t use the bible to try and prove your lies!
          Heres a good verse for you and and others on here that jump to point fingers at the jews
          Romans 2: 1-3
          You may be saying ” what terrible people you have been talking about!” But you are just as bad, and you have no excuse! When you say they are wicked and should be punished, you are condemning yourself, for you do these very same things. And we know that god in his justice, will punish anyone who does such things. Do you think that god will judge and condemn others for doing them and not judge you when you do them, too?

          • Well let’s have a look at some of what their Satanic Talmud teaches:
            Whoever disobeys a Rabbi deserves death…Erubin 21b. Whosoever disobeys the rabbis deserves death and will be punished by being boiled in hot excrement in hell.
            Moed Kattan 17a . If a Jew is tempted to do evil he should go to a city where he is not known and do the evil there.
            Non-Jews are Not Human Baba Mezia 114a-114b. Only Jews are human (“Only ye are designated men”).
            Also see Kerithoth 6b under the sub-head, “Oil of Anointing” and Berakoth 58a in which Gentile women are designated animals (“she-asses”).
            Jews are Divine, Sanhedrin 58b. If a heathen (Gentile) hits a Jew, the Gentile must be killed. Hitting a Jew is the same as hitting God.
            O.K. to Cheat Non-Jews, Sanhedrin 57a . A Jew need not pay a Gentile (“Cuthean”) the wages owed him for work.
            Jews Have Superior Legal Status, Baba Kamma 37b. “If an ox of an Israelite gores an ox of a Canaanite there is no liability; but if an ox of a Canaanite gores an ox of an Israelite…the payment is to be in full.”
            Jews May Steal from Non-Jews, Baba Mezia 24a . If a Jew finds an object lost by a Gentile (“heathen”) it does not have to be returned. (Affirmed also in Baba Kamma 113b).
            Sanhedrin 76a . God will not spare a Jew who “marries his daughter to an old man or takes a wife for his infant son or returns a lost article to a Cuthean…”
            Jews May Rob and Kill Non-Jews, Sanhedrin 57a . When a Jew murders a Gentile (“Cuthean”), there will be no death penalty. What a Jew steals from a Gentile he may keep.
            Baba Kamma 37b. Gentiles are outside the protection of the law and God has “exposed their money to Israel.”
            Jews May Lie to Non-Jews, Baba Kamma 113a. Jews may use lies (“subterfuges”) to circumvent a Gentile.
            Non-Jewish Children Sub-Human, Yebamoth 98a. All Gentile children are animals.
            Abodah Zarah 36b . Gentile girls are in a state of niddah (filth) from birth.
            Abodah Zarah 22a-22b . Gentiles prefer sex with cows.
            Abodah Zarah 67b . “The vessels of Gentiles, do they not impart a worsened flavor to the food cooked in them?”
            Insults Against Mary, Sanhedrin 106a . Says Jesus’ mother was a whore: “She who was the descendant of princes and governors played the harlot with carpenters.” Also in footnote #2 to Shabbath 104b it is stated that in the “uncensored” text of the Talmud it is written that Jesus mother, “Miriam the hairdresser,” had sex with many men.
            Gloats over Christ Dying Young, A passage from Sanhedrin 106 gloats over the early age at which Jesus died: “Hast thou heard how old Balaam (Jesus) was?–He replied: It is not actually stated but since it is written, Bloody and deceitful men shall not live out half their days it follows that he was thirty-three or thirty-four years old.”
            Says Jesus was a Sorcerer, Sanhedrin 43a . Says Jesus (“Yeshu” and in footnote #6, Yeshu “the Nazarene”) was executed because he practiced sorcery.
            Horrible Blasphemy of Jesus, Gittin 57a . Says Jesus ( see footnote #4) is being boiled in “hot excrement.”
            Sanhedrin 43a . Jesus deserved execution: “On the eve of the Passover, Yeshu was hanged…Do you suppose that he was one for whom a defense could be made? Was he not a Mesith (enticer)?”
            Attacks Christians and their Books, Rosh Hashanah 17a . Christians (“minim”) and others who reject the Talmud will go to hell and be punished there for all generations (see footnote #11 for the definition of minim).
            Sanhedrin 90a.Those who read the New Testament (“uncanonical books,” see footnote #9) will have no portion in the world to come.
            Shabbath 116a (p. 569). Jews must destroy the books of the Christians, i.e. the New Testament.

            Israel Shahak reports that the Zionists burned hundreds of New Testament books in Occupied Palestine on March 23, 1980 (cf. Jewish History, Jewish Religion, p. 21).
            Sick and Insane Teachings, Gittin 69a . To heal his flesh a Jew should take dust that lies within the shadow of an outdoor toilet, mix it with honey and eat it.
            Shabbath 41a. The law regulating the rule for how to urinate in a holy way is given.
            Yebamoth 63a. States that Adam had sexual intercourse with all the animals in the Garden of Eden.
            Yebamoth 63a. Declares that agriculture is the lowest of occupations.
            Sanhedrin 55b . A Jew may marry a three year old girl (specifically, three years “and a day” old).
            Sanhedrin 54b . A Jew may have sex with a child as long as the child is less than nine years old.
            Kethuboth 11b . “When a grown-up man has intercourse with a little girl it is nothing.”
            Yebamoth 59b . A woman who had intercourse with a beast is eligible to marry a Jewish priest. A woman who has sex with a demon is also eligible to marry a Jewish priest.
            Abodah Zarah 17a. States that there is not a whore in the world that Rabbi Eleazar has not had sex with.
            Hagigah 27a . States that no rabbi can ever go to hell.
            Baba Mezia 59b. A rabbi debates God and defeats Him. God admits the rabbi won the debate.
            Gittin 70a . The Rabbis taught: “On coming from a privy (outdoor toilet) a man should not have sexual intercourse till he has waited long enough to walk half a mile, because the demon of the privy is with him for that time; if he does, his children will be epileptic.”
            Sanhedrin 59a: “Murdering Goyim is like killing a wild animal.”
            Abodah Zara 26b: “Even the best of the Gentiles should be killed.”

            Sanhedrin 59a: “A Goy (Gentile) who pries into the law (Talmud) is guilty of death.”
            Libbre David 37: “To communicate anything with a Goy about our religious relations would be equal to the killing of all Jews, for if the Goyim knew what we teach about them, they would kill us openly.

            ” Yebhamoth 11b: “Sexual intercourse with a little girl is permitted if she is of three years of age.

            ” Sanhedrin 105ab: “Jesus fornicated with his jackass.

            ” Gittin 57a: “Jesus is in hell and is being punished by being boiled in semen. Christians are boiled in dung.

            ” Schabouth Hag. 6b: “Jews may swear falsely by use of subterfuge wording.

            ” Zohar 1,160a: “Jews must always try to deceive Christians.” Hilkkoth Akum Z1: “Do not save Goyim (Gentiles) in danger of death.

            ” Choschen Ham 388, 15: “If it be proven that someone has given the money of israelites to the Goyim, a way must be found after prudent consideration to wipe him off the face of this earth.”

            Choschen Ham 266, 1: “A Jew may keep anything he finds which belongs to the Akum (Gentile). For he who returns lost property (to Gentiles) sins against the law by increasing the power of the transgressors of the law. It is praiseworthy, however, to return lost property if it is done to honor the name of God, namely if by so doing Christians will praise the Jews and look upon them as honorable people.”

            • All those laws you just quoted were laws implemented thousands of years ago for certain purposes. They dont apply to todays laws. And those laws have nothing to do with the bible. Jesus came back to teach the jews and gentiles that those laws are wicked and arnt to be followed. Jews dont belive those laws today. You look at any law manuscript from over 4,000 years ago and its gonna be just as harsh! Im just saying, if your gonna be racist, dont bring the bible into it. God deosnt agree with your racism.

                • I see that you are well aquatinted with old jewish law. but I’m confused. you obviously hate the jews, but as far as I’ve seen, you believe in jesus. I’m assuming this because you quoted the bible above. well my friend..jesus is A JEW! who is the descendant of king David..A JEW! so if you are condemning the jews, then you are also condemning jesus. and if you believe in what the bible teaches, then you can’t pick and choose which part of it you want to believe. I quoted Romans 2: 1-3 above which talks about not condemning others. so if you believe in the bible, you are directly disobeying god! if you really believe that the jews have done wrong, then leave it to god to judge. i don’t need to quote any more scripture since you’ve obviously read them, but you know just as well as i do that it says in many different scriptures that when you judge others, god will judge you!

                • It is you who condemns and passes judgement on me calling me a racist and Jew hater. I quote scripture that states there are Jews that lie and are the Synagogue of Satan, and those who deny Christ as the father is antichrist etc. I do not believe Jewish/Gentile lies about the Holocaust™ and that makes me neither a racist nor Jew hater. Jews who do not follow Satanic Judaism and accept Christ as the father are my fellow Christian brothers/sisters.

                • alright well if you don’t hate jews or any other race for that matter, then your not racist. I’m not judging you, I’m just confused on why you deny the holocaust if your not racist against jews. because i can tell you every other holocaust denier on this page is most definitely racist with the horrible comments they’ve made! but as a christ follower i believe everyone falls short of the glory of god, not just jews. i know many jews in the bible have a horrible reputation, especially the Pharisees, but it was the jews who received gods law first, so really if it weren’t for the jews, we wouldn’t have the bible! but anyways, if its not hate or racism that drives you to not believe that the holocaust happened, then you can believe what you want. I’m just sick of seeing white supremacist’s try to make a point driven by hate and anger.

                • Upon learning the official number of the Holocaust™ death toll at Auschwitz dropped from 4 million to “about 1.5 million” without effecting the 6 million I had to take a closer look. I came to learn you cannot gas peope in a regular room with a regular door and thin glass window that opens inward without a lock 😃 Especially when the holes in the ceiling of said “gas shamber” were put there after the war under the direct orders of Stalin, along with the chimney outside that isn’t even connected to anything, why? Then seeing how Jews in the media have been claiming 6 million Jewish victims multiple times for over 60 years before the war. Then I learn about the fire bombing of Dresden that killed 600,000 civilians, and Eisenhower’s Rhine Meadows death camps where between 9-15 million Germans, mostly civilians, we’re deliberately starved to death after the war. Why I don’t believe the Holohoax? Because it is a proven fraud regardless what people who haven’t investigated it thinks.

                • actually 1.5 million jews killed at Auschwitz is correct. it was 6 million killed throughout the entirety of the war through many different camps. and 9-15 million germans starved??? where do you get these numbers? from 1940-1945 there were only 400 thousand german pow’s brought to america. in fact many of them were paid to work on farms and rural areas. many of them ended up staying in america because they didn’t want to return to germany. 4.5 million german soldiers were killed throughout the entirety of the war. so 9-15 million is a made up number. So if you don’t believe that jews were killed in camps. then why were so many deported from there countries, far away lands, which is a fact! proven by countless signatures from Adolf Eichmann for deportation. then do you think that millions were deported to come be friends with the germans..lol.. and how come out of the over 6 million that were deported, only some thousand returned alive? if they were just bombed by the americans, then there would be proof of body parts scattered everywhere. thats what happens when you are killed by a bomb. but no, there were stacks of body’s, in which many had horrible wounds on them, many bullet holes to the head. all were starved to death, and many had horrible diseases from terrible living conditions. countless grave sights unburied with body’s that also were examined and had terrible wounds to them. there weren’t stacks of body’s or graves found in america, because there was no mass killing of Germans in america. after the war, most people fled germany, and many fled to the U.S. so if the U.S. was so evil, why flee to it??? you keep saying its a fact that the holocaust didn’t happen. but you have provided nothing but nazi influenced nonsense, created by other holocaust deniers, which is in fact, not fact at all!

                • 6 million Jews died in the Holocaust™ In 1989 the number killed at Auschwitz gets reduced from 4 million to 1.5 million of which 90% were Jews, and the 6 million still stands. That nearly cut the Holocaust™ in half and the 6 million number isn’t effected. The 6 million number is debunked right there= Fact. Holocaust™ “deniers” were imprisoned for simply questioning that number. The Dresden Holocaust of 600,000 fact

              • I will admit that the number of jews killed is a bit shakey and it has changed over the years. but what is interesting to me is that the initial claim of 4 million jews killed at Auschwitz came from the former commandont of Auschwitz, Rudolf Hoess. The original 6 milion jews murdered, came from a statement from SS officer Wilhelm Hottl made, who claimed that Adolf Eichmann, head of the jewish devision of the Gestapo, had told him that 4 million died in camps, and 2 million elsewhere. now whats really interesting is that Many jewish scholars and historians such as Raul Hilberg and Yehuda Bauer, have claimed that not as many jews as the nazi’s themselves claimed, were annihilated. Bauer stated ” A historians first duty is to tell the truth.”
                so I’m just wondering, why would the nazi’s themselves claim more jews were killed than the actually number? in my opinion, they were bragging. they wanted the world to believe they caused much more destruction to the jews than they actually did and for a couple of reasons. one, they intended on killing more had the war continued, and two, because of the hate they had for the jews. now tell me, why would jews themselves claim that these numbers of 6 million killed were false and that in reality it was much less? why would they have any reason to do this unless they were being honest? and you can look up and research the scholars / historians i listed for yourself! wether it was 6 million, 4 million or 2 million. the fact of the matter is, they were murdered, and it doesn’t make it right!

        The Holohoax is so believable they have to enforce it by law in 18 countries. It is the only historical event in history that has to be enforced by law for a reason. It was no different that the Russian show trials where forced false confessions were used also. Neuremberg even used the same judge!

Seems fair enough to me! You obviously hate jews, because you are racist, and what drives you is hate! I don’t hate germans. Ive met some great people from Germany through my life. But germans will tell you themselves that they are ashamed of what there country did! It is a fact that jews were murdered by the nazis! It is a fact that in the summer of 1944, jews were gassed at auswitch. There was enough zyclon B found to annihilate an entire nation of people!

  9. It is interesting to ask why would the Germans move the Jews from Auschwitz in Jan 1945 as they evacuated Poland under the Red Army Bolsheviks advance as if they were precious commodity to the Reich. If an extermination program was truly the overriding policy why keep them alive and use perfectly good trains and waste manpower while battles were raging for that purpose. These Jews were being kept alive while German soldiers were being killed on the Russian front. Doesn’t make sense. Can anyone explain?

    Comment by Al Suther — May 24, 2015 @ 6:20 pm

    • When I was in second grade my family and I went to see Dachau. And I will never forget what I saw and even as a child I did not understand why people had died there. We saw the showers, the pictures, the barbed wire and all of it was very real. Even as a child I felt the evil and that place scared me. I remember clinging to my mother because I was so scared and couldn’t wait to leave.There are no myths that place is real. No one knows how many prisonerswere there before the Germans surrendered. And if those soldiers were remorseful why didn’t they unlock the gates set the prisoners free? So instead of taking those soldiers through a trial and hanging the Americans did what was right and shot them. I applaud the American soldiers for shooting them. So don’t try to portray this horrific piece of history as a myth or dismiss that Dachau as being real.

      • You wrote: “And if those soldiers were remorseful why didn’t they unlock the gates set the prisoners free? So instead of taking those soldiers through a trial and hanging the Americans did what was right and shot them.”

        You have brought up TWO issues:

        1. Why didn’t the German soldiers set the prisoners free?” There was a typhus epidemic in the camp and the Germans did not want the prisoners to spread the epidemic throughout the country side. There were numerous sick prisoners that the Americans had to take care of after the camp was liberated.

        2. The inmates included common criminals who had been sent to the camp after committing two or more crimes. Also included were men who were fighting the war, not as soldiers, but as illegal combatants. If released, these men would have gone immediately to the town of Dachau and killed German civilians. (This was what happened when Buchenwald was liberated.)

        It was against the Geneva Convention to kill prisoners of war, such as the German soldiers who were taken prisoner at Dachau. Prisoners of War had rights under the Geneva Convention that was in effect at that time.

        I think you have a total misconception about Dachau. I have written about Dachau on my website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/DachauScrapbook/KZDachau/DachauLife.html

        I have written about the Jewish prisoners at Dachau on this page of my website: http://www.scrapbookpages.com/DachauScrapbook/KZDachau/DachauLife4.html

        Some of the prisoners had been marched out of the Dachau camp before the American liberators arrived. I wrote about this on my website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/DachauScrapbook/DachauLiberation/LiberationDay2A.html

        Comment by furtherglory — June 7, 2015 @ 11:47 am

    • Makes sense when you realize that the prisoners were kept alive only because the coward Germans were RUNNING away from the camp and didn’t have enough time left to finish their evil deeds.
      Who but a complete moron would try to justify leaving the prisoners alive? You really are sick!

      Comment by hier Mueler — September 18, 2015 @ 12:23 pm

  10. I visited Dachau. Even Americans agree there was no gassing of prisoners at Dachau. It was a myth. If extermination there was why were there the full complement of population of nearly 40,000 inmates? If the intent of the camp is to kill they would have been killed already. No the camp was there to rehabilitate. Or use them as slave workers. Most died of typhus but so did Germans on the front line. This is not the only example of retaliation. While there I noticed the bunks that had been preserved allowed 1 bunk per inmate. After he end of the war nearly 1 million Germans perished in improvised Bavarian camps with no barracks, with little food (Eisenhower forbade Red Cross parcels). The death rate was 10 times what it was in British and French camps. Check Canadian journalist book “Other Losses.” It’s time to tell the truth. We were no angels either.

      • Hitler didn’t start the war. At the conclusion of WW1, the French Versailles Diktat terms of Surrender for the Germans included stripping away key landmass and territories taken from East Germany, Austria, Lithuania, and Russia to CREATE an independent Poland. The Poles were desperately doing an ethnic cleansing of German-speakers and Volks-Deutsche so Germans would have no later claim, and this resulted in mass expulsions and also rapes and murder. The attacks by the Poles on the ethnic Germans was so intense it spurred Hitler’s invasion, which is memorialized in his speeches how the hypocritical West is silent when German lives are involved, and culminated in the Bromberg Massacres where an estimated 28,000 Volks-Deutsche were mutilated with eyes-gouged out and murdered on the eve of Hitler’s invasion to reclaim German land stolen by the illegal treaty of Versailles.

        To avoid WAR with France and Britain, he collaborated with Stalin, since Germany and Austria were united, and Stalin’s Soviet Russia had absorbed Lithuania, nearly 1/2 of Poland consisted of land belonging to bot, and Hitler felt a united Germany and Russia would thwart any claim by the West. After all, as he said in one speech what business is it of their’s where a German border lies?

        What HAPPENED is quite complex and deceptive. You see, Wall Street and Britain had an interest in the Tsar’s Billions, and SPONSORED the Communist Revolution. When the Ribbentrop-Molotov pact was signed between Germany and Soviet Russia, Stalin did something interesting, within 2 months he initiated a draft, and lowered the draft age from 21 to 18 and increased the size of Soviet Forces to 5.5 million, this is shared by former KGB agent and defector, Viktor Suvorov, author of The Icebreaker. When Hitler was shown irrefutable evidence that Stalin was amassing huge numbers of troops he anticipated, and correctly, that Stalin had betrayed him with a secret pact with the Allies and was forced to launch the suicidal Operation Barbarossa in the forlorn hope, as he was militarily over-extended on 2 fronts, that an aggressive blitz might stop Stalin, and the Communist takeover of Europe. Sadly, the Russian winter was unseasonably cold that year, and Britain and America poured millions in cash and material into Stalin’s war machine… effectively dooming Europe to Communist overseership and financial destruction for the next several decades.

        As for America “finishing” things, what a joke. WW2 was decided on the Russian Front, and the Soviet onslaught which pushed into Berlin. The Americans came along as a clean-up force to savor and gloat over a victory they handed to Joseph Stalin, a man who his own people accused of more than 100x the murders ever accused of Hitler and the Nazi regime. It was the pan-European Waffen-SS which truly united Europe to save European heritage from the atheistic Communist plunder.

It’s too bad most Germans who worked in these camps got away and never saw a day in prison. After the war no one gave a crap about these camps they just wanted to move on and fight the new enemy the Soviet union. Your blog tries to re-write history and minimize the facts about the 3rd Reich, and how they committed genocide of civilian populations. The German people were nothing more then Cowards.

            • You are ignorant but I can’t blame you. As you should suspect by now a great deal of disinformation and history rewriting is made by the victors for propaganda purposes to manage the feelings of the folks back home. The Brits did it as of course did the Soviet who excelled in disinformation. Remember the organised separation and treatment of the Jews were due a great deal to the realization Russia’s Bolshevism / Soviet was very much the work of a controlling Jewish minority. Jews in power in the Siviet Union killed to 40 million Christians through starvation, deportation to Siberia and executions. Americans have no idea. History has taught even on TV is highly filtered to make Americans look as saints.
              As a son of occupied Europe I heard stories of atrocities committed by our side. German never committed atrocities at random. Villagers were lined up and killed as retaliation of partisan action in violation of Geneva convention. One cannot shoot others out of uniform. That’s what the partisans did. Come up as civilians to a couple street patrolling unsuspecting German soldiers and pull a gun on them. Raping was punished by death unlike Soviets who were encouraged to rape 4 million German women in 1945-46 as young as 5 year old.

            • I happen to live literally down the road from Mr. Whiteway, have seen him speak publicly, and had the pleasure of conversing with him on this topic. I am quite satisfied that his testimonials and his collection of photographs, are genuine, and that his, along with the testimony of my jewish wife’s relatives who survived the camps and were freed by the Swedes, are enough for me to believe that the aforementioned Nazi atrocities were quite real. It happened. Get over it(my grandfather-in-law was the sole survivor of his extended family- we have photos of his murdered mother and aunts on display in our home…).
              Have you heard of operation paper clip? you know the one where top ranking Nazis and doctors/scientists were secretly evacuated and placed in the good ol’ USA in places such as upstate New York Mental hospitals, NASA, and hidden away in South America? Yeah that happened too. American corporations such as IBM, some auto manufacturers and of course pharmaceutical companies, the Bush family etc., were complicit in the whole Nazi business end of things it gets downright embarrassing to consider… anyway, I digress…
              Now let’s discuss the FEMA/private prisons in this country and maybe consider for a moment how close we are to a repeat- time to turn off the damned TV/ Associated Press nonsense and stop following pro sports for a moment and take a good long look at what we are paying our allegedly elected officials to do to us, and maybe do something about it before we all have a achance to meet in person in one of those camps. btw there are 800+ of them already constructed and waiting to be filled.

            • “After the war no one gave a crap about these camps they just wanted to move on….” Not true. There were massive efforts to feed and heal any prison inmate who had a chance for survival. (Those who didn’t have a chance, were made as comfortable as humanly possible, such as via opiate dosing, so they could at least die in their sleep.) The death camp denialists forget that some of us were there. And don’t tell me that everything is just propaganda. I translated camp documents, some of which were used at Nuremberg.

          • Didnt need it before,dont need it now. the convention wasnt mentioned at Neurenberg.As we all know the victor is Always right. Just remember that the terror bombing purposely aimed at civilians,is as wrong as locking up the pollitical inconvenient.
            Next to that the deathtoll in the camps was mainly triggered by mallnutrition and disease.So the allies are as much to blame for the many dead prisoners.
            The same mindset made the honourable eisenhower starve 1,7 million “disarmed enemysoldiers” to death.

  12. Other accounts of the massacre at Dachau identify Lt. Jack Bushyhead as the man behind the tripod-mounted machine gun. Charges were brought against Bushyhead but later dropped…according to some sources. An American medical officer was present at Dachau and later wrote about the massacre. The book, I seem to recall, was entitled, “Day of the Avenger”.

    Concerning American war crimes in WW2: Aside from the Dachau massacre, the bombing of Dresden (February, 1945) and the Eisenhower death camps were notable examples..
    The Eisenhower camps for surrendered German soldiers are documented in James Bacque’s book, “Other Loses”.

    Comment by Dean — April 20, 2014 @ 11:00 pm

    • The author of the book was Col. Howard A. Buechner, a medical officer with the 3rd Battalion of the 157th Infantry Regiment, 45th Division. The title of the book is “The Hour of the Avenger.” Buechner wrote that 520 German Prisoners of War were killed by American soldiers at Dachau.

      The Waffen-SS was an elite volunteer army that fought in battle; they had nothing to do with the concentration camp that was located next door to the SS garrison at Dachau.

      The concentration camp guards were a separate group in the SS, called the SS-Totenkopfverbände, or the Death’s Head SS.

      Waffen-SS soldiers, including some Hungarian soldiers, had been sent to Dachau to surrender the camp. Other Waffen-SS soldiers were stationed in the garrison next door to the Dachau concentration camp.

      “The Avenger” in the title of Col. Buechner’s book is 1st Lt. Jack Bushyhead, a “full-blooded Cherokee Indian” who was the Executive Officer of I Company, 3rd Battalion, 157th Infantry Regiment, the unit which allegedly murdered 346 Waffen-SS soldiers in cold blood, on Bushyhead’s orders.

      In his book, Col. Buechner explained that Lt. Bushyhead was avenging the wrong that had been done to the native population of America by the white settlers. Bushyhead’s people had been brutally uprooted from their ancestral homes in Georgia and North Carolina and had been forced to walk more than a thousand miles to Oklahoma on the “trail of tears” where they had “perished in untold numbers and without retribution.”

      According to Col. Buechner, Lt. Bushyhead felt a kinship with the Jews who had also been “harassed and driven from country to country for thousands of years.”

      Buechner’s book is very controversial. Many people don’t believe his version of the story. I have communicated with Bushyhead’s family and one of his relatives told me that he was, in fact, the man who was operating the machine gun. After the war, Jack Bushyhead stayed on in Germany and committed other crimes against the German people, according to his relatives. He died an early death, according to his relative.

        • It was several years ago that I got an e-mail from a relative of Jack Bushyhead. I get millions of e-mail messages and I do not keep them all. I don’t remember the name of the relative.

          I wrote the following about Jack Bushyhead on this page of my website: http://www.scrapbookpages.com/DachauScrapbook/DachauLiberation/BuechnerAccount.html

          Begin quote:

          Col. Buechner wrote the following in his book:

          Lt. Bushyhead suddenly found himself in command of the camp and a small cadre of men armed with rifles, pistols, a Browning automatic rifle, and two machine guns. He could no longer reject the role which fate had fashioned for him and for which he seems to have been predestined. Acting with what he believed to be compelling justification, he became an instrument of vengeance and recompense for the atrocities he had witnessed.

          In a matter of minutes, he ordered his prisoners to line up along a high brick wall and disposed of them with a few bursts of machine gun fire. He then armed three or four inmates with pistols and allowed them the satisfaction of completing the execution.
          End quote

          The subject of Col. Buechner is controversial. Many people think that he was never at Dachau. I wrote about him on this page of my website:

    • Bacque’s book is rubbish. “Other losses” was a catch-all term for personnel mostly just sent home. There was no reason to continue holding kids and elderly reservists, members of the many paramilitary outfits (the Germans loved uniforms), military railroad and construction troops, and the like. This author was accusing Eisenhower of running American extermination programs. Very bad scholarship, the worst I’d seen in a long time. It did not happen.

        I wrote about Eisenhower’s death camp on my website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/EasternGermany/Gotha/index.html

        Here is a quote from my website:
        BEGIN QUOTE
        On March 10, 1945 as World War II was coming to an end, General Eisenhower signed an order creating the status of Disarmed Enemy Forces for the German Prisoners of War who would soon be surrendering to the Americans. This order was a violation of the Geneva Convention because it allowed Eisenhower to disregard the rules for the treatment of Prisoners of War. It allowed him to starve the German POWs, deny them the right to send and receive letters, and to receive Red Cross packages and packages from German civilians. All of these rights were enjoyed by the prisoners in the Nazi POW camps and even in the notorious concentration camps. Eisenhower signed this order before he had even seen the horrors of the concentration camps, which so affected him.

        In his book entitled “Other Losses,” James Bacque wrote the following:

        There were no tents in the Gotha DEF camp, only the usual barbed wire fences round a field soon churned to mud. On the first day, they received a small ration of food, which was then cut in half. In order to get it, they were forced to run a gauntlet. Hunched over, they ran between lines of guards who hit them with sticks as they scurried towards their food. On April 27, they were transferred to the U.S. camp at Heidesheim further west where there was no food at all for days, then very little.

          • I don’t expect you to read long articles from my website, so I am giving you an important quote about the prison camp for German soldiers at Dachau

            Begin quote:

            The authority for charging the defeated Germans with war crimes came from the London Agreement, signed after the war on August 8, 1945 by the four winning countries: Great Britain, France, the Soviet Union and the USA. The basis for the charges against the accused German war criminals was Law Order No. 10, issued by the Allied Control Council, the governing body for Germany before the country was divided into East and West Germany.

            Law Order No. 10 defined Crimes against Peace, War Crimes, and Crimes against Humanity. A fourth crime category was membership in any organization, such as the Nazi party or the SS, that was declared to be criminal by the Allies. The war crimes contained in Law Order No. 10 were new crimes, created specifically for the defeated Germans, not crimes against existing international laws. Any acts committed by the winning Allies which were covered under Law Order No. 10 were not considered war crimes.

        • “Other losses” did happen in American mass open air concentration camps under Eisenhower. The Germans had no protection from the weather unlike the Dachau inmates. My uncle who was a “malgré nous” a French Alsatian forced to serve in German uniform was in one of those camps until he was able to identify himself. Still had to escape reprisal in France by joining the French foreign legion. Remember the U.S. Army coverups at Mai Lai and friendly fire in Afghanistan in the death of AZ Cardinal linebacker.
          Eisenhower engineered huge coverups for his actions against German soldiers (Geneva Convention does not cover post surrender prisoners).

          Comment by Al Suther — May 24, 2015 @ 6:11 pm

  13. Why would SS troops be sent to help surrender a camp? Is there documentation that the SS command sent them for that purpose? We’re they so clueless or arrogant to think they were immune from reprisal? I cannot think of any reason why an Axis soldier would want to help the Allies liberate one of the more notorious camps.

    Comment by Spruce Jewett — September 20, 2013 @ 10:29 pm

    • The Commandant of the Dachau Camp (Eduard Weiter) had left the camp, leading a group of important prisoners out of the camp. Thousands of prisoners from the sub-camps of Dachau had been brought to the main camp, to be surrendered to the Allies.

      The acting Commandant (Martin Weiss) had left the camp with most of the SS guards. He had only arrived at the Dachau main camp a few days before, leading a group of prisoners from one of the main sub-camps. When Weiss left the main camp with the regular guards, there was no one left to guard the prisoners except 128 SS men who were prisoners themselves at Dachau. That’s why Hungarian Waffen-SS soldiers were sent to the camp to keep order during the surrender. These Hungarians were not “Axis soldiers.” They were Hungarians who had volunteered to join the Waffen-SS.

      There were many divisions in the Waffen-SS from other countries; you can read about the SS at https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2010/05/25/ss-soldiers-have-an-undeserved-bad-reputation/

      Hungary was an Ally of Germany at the start of World War II, but as the war progressed, Hungary changed sides and joined the Axis side.

      This quote is from Wikipedia:
      “According to Harold Marcuse, the camp commander SS-Hauptsturmführer Martin Weiss, together with the camp guards and the SS garrisons, had fled the camp before the arrival of U.S. troops. SS-Untersturmführer Heinrich Wicker (killed after the surrender) was left in charge and had roughly 560 personnel at his disposal; these came from inmates of the SS disciplinary prison inside the Dachau concentration camp and from Hungarian Waffen-SS troops.[6]”

      Heinrich Wicker had only recently arrived at the main camp, leading prisoners from several of the sub-camps. He was recruited, by the Red Cross man in the camp, to surrender the Dachau main camp to the Americans.

      Dachau was not a “notorious” camp until after it was liberated. Before that, it had the reputation for being the best of the concentration camps.

      A “reprisal” was a legal action against the enemy to stop illegal actions of the enemy. Wikipedia calls the Dachau massacre a “reprisal” but this is incorrect. I wrote about this in another blog post at https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2013/04/27/dachau-liberation-reprisals-another-term-for-the-dachau-massacre/

      Comment by furtherglory — September 21, 2013 @ 7:13 am

      • You are confused with the term Axis. Axis were Germany, Japan, Italy and briefly Russia. Allies was the term you should have used. Hungary NEVER joined the Allies either, as toward the end of the war, the Germans came in and controlled the country when they found out that Hungary was negotiating a surrender.
        Interestingly, my real father was a Hungarian Officer that fought against the Soviets on the Danube river. He was considered a hero in Hungary and later was knighted in to the VItez Order and later I was also. The Soviets had a price on his head. After the war, he was an undercover operative for French Intelligence in Hungary and later taught Hungarian for the CIA.
        My mother and I were also at the bombing of Dresden and were straffed by US aircraft while on a refuge train. My parents divorced after the war and my mother later married my stepfather, a US officer.
        My step-father, was an American officer that liberated Dachau. I found a group of pictures that he had that I turned over to the Weisenthal Holocaust Museum in D.C. The museum kept the ones that had SS soldiers lying on the ground by a canal. At the time I presented these pictures, one of the leading officers was speaking at the museum about the “Dachau Massacre” mentioned in these comments.

    • What is written here is true. Recorded after investigation by author Michael Selzer in his book “Deliverance Day, the last hours of Dachau.” The regular camp staff, the ones that were responsible for all the atrocities at the camp, escaped. To maintain order until the Americans would arrive in the following days, combat troops who were recuperating in the next door military hospital and barracks were ordered to take charge of the camp and to surrender it to the advancing Americans. The only ones who had weapons were the ones manning the guard towers. All other weapons were stashed and stacked to be handed to the Americans. The guard towers had weapons to maintain order and prevent rioting. There are no reports of them being used. When Americans arrived the next day the Germans did not fire upon them and simply came out with their hands up and were all shot as they emerged from the towers. About 120 soldiers were lined up against the wall and executed by machine gun. Some Americans gave pistols to prisoners who executed kapos and other soldiers brought in from the surrounds.

    • Those poor, innocent German boys did not fear reprisal, for they had done nothing wrong. You people are so mindfucked from Jewish lies, you retroactively second guess and judge men you never have, and likely will (if the Jews keep getting their way) never have the privilege of knowing anything about.

      Comment by KarmaQueen — April 24, 2015 @ 9:48 am

    • You are speculating. If they were sent to liquidate 40,000 prisoners they obviously didn’t do a good job, and there was no proof of hurried mass liquidation as Russian communist Jews had done to 17,000 Polish officers at Katyn Forest in Belarus in one day.

  15. the Americans behaved correctly, none of this scum were innocent, they all deserved to die much more horribly than they did. There is no excuse for the conditions the prisoners were held under – because there is no excuse they were held or murdered at all. That even German civilians actively murdered the few survivors still in April 1945 is an obscenity. The allies should have carried on bombing these monsters to the end and past it – as the Germans had done to their victims

    Comment by smo — March 5, 2013 @ 7:32 am

    • Did the Americans behave correctly when they kept the killing of the “scum” at Dachau a secret for over 40 years? Why not let the American public know that German soldiers, who “all deserved to die much more horribly than they did,” were killed by the liberators of Dachau? The American public should have had the chance to rejoice over the killing of German soldiers who “deserved to die.”

      Comment by furtherglory — March 5, 2013 @ 8:54 am

    • The shooting of unarmed enemy soldiers who had surrendered and had their hands in the air was a war crime because it was a violation of the Geneva Convention. Approval of a war crime is not against the law in American, but if you live in France you could be sent to prison for what you wrote.

  16. There is a lot of history here for me to learn about as I have more time to dedicate to it in the future.

    All I can contribute for now is that when I was in college and travelling Europe in 1980, I went to Dacau.

    The feeling was ominous as I entered the gates and slowly made my way to the “visitors” center. I couldn’t face the over-whelming emotions and stayed outside, waiting for my friends. What a place! What an experience!

The current visitor’s center is all about the Holocaust and it doesn’t explain the history that led up to the opening of Dachau.

  18. There is no justification for what the Americans did. The SS were patients – the Americans the liberator who acted just the same as their victims. My Grandfather was one of the SS soldiers who was a fighting soldier, got wounded on the western front and was dragged out of the hospital, put against the wall and was shot in cold blood. He wasn’t killed by the first round of fire and was shot again. Germans were hanged after the war for doing less.

  19. Found this on Wicker and I was wrong about him he did see combat. However I have never seen any evidence that identifies a Waffen SS combat unit the guards are reputed to come from. Wicker commanded a unit of camp guards and they must be a more likely source of troops.

    Equally I am perfectly aware of the difference between an extermination camp and a concentration camp. However some make out that Dachau was some kind of harsh prison and this is not true it was a place where thousands died in appalling conditions.

    April 15-29, 1945 (circa): Wicker placed in charge of training “Kampfgruppe Süd” (Combat Group South) – a 250-man scratch unit formed from KZ guards who formerly served at subcamps Neckarelz, Kochendorf and Hessental. Wicker’s mother, sister, girlfriend and son visit Wicker at KZ Dachau sometime during this time frame. However, Wicker’s relatives claimed after the war to have last heard from him in January 1945.

    April 28, 1945: Senior commanders of KZ Dachau flee installation. Wicker is left in charge, but is unclear who his orders came from. Also unclear if his orders were to evacuate or to surrender the camp

    • Everything that you wrote about 2nd Lt. Wicker is on my website.

      As for the Waffen-SS combat unit, go to this page of my web site: http://www.scrapbookpages.com/DachauScrapbook/DachauLiberation/SoldiersKilled2.html where you will see a photo of a Waffen-SS soldier who is Hungarian. It is the 5th photo on the page. This page of my website is based on the testimony of Hans Linberger, who was a survivor of the shooting at the wall of the coal bin near the hospital where Linberger, a wounded Wehrmacht soldier, was dragged out to be shot. I also have the testimony of Hans Linberger in the original German on my website.

      Wicker was not “left in charge” of the camp. When the acting Commandant, Martin Gottfried Weiss, left the camp, he turned it over to the International Committee of Dachau. There was a Red Cross man there, and he was the one who recruited 2nd Lt. Wicker to surrender the camp. When the Americans entered the camp, they were greeted by Albert Guérisse, a British SOE agent who was the head of the International Committee.

      Wicker had only been at Dachau since April 15, 1945 (about two weeks). He did not deserve to be killed and his body thrown somewhere where it was never found. He was the man in charge of bringing prisoners from the sub-camps so that they could be surrendered to the Americans.

      I know that you want to make excuses and say that innocent men deserved to be killed because they were German or were fighting with the German military, but the Dachau Massacre was a war crime. Hatred of the German people is still being promoted by people like yourself. Get over it!!!

      • AMEN! They are currently promoting this hatred in every school in the US and Canada. A young teenager was recently called into the Principals office for merely stating the truth that Dachau was NOT as portrayed by the lying “victors” (Jew hired, trained and paid THUGS!). I was a senior debater in High School, and we were encouraged to perform healthy debate, offer thesis, offer information and prove it. Not so for kids today! They NO LONGER have freedom of speech, now that the poor lampshade Jews are fully in control! The “victors” offspring are so god awful ashamed, and hell bent on not facing the truth of how they were duped by lying, commie jews. Even a child pointing out the ever increasing obviousness of the holohoax lies, is perceived as a threat and the key to unlocking the truth they want to keep hid. Free speech DENIED- Jackasses of the allied armies, enjoying your fake “freedom”, now that you handed your descendents over to world communism? Reap it.

      There are a number of errors in your summary; one I would take exception to is the Religion you state that “Gottgläubig” means believing in God, far from it, it is exactly the opposite, any German that states this on the typical questions for tax purposes thereby claims that he has officially left his church, which by the way is a lengthy process and “He” or “She” is more or less an Agnostic. Almost all SS-men were de-programmed in that respect, as the higher command could not carry out often ruthless operations. The Commandment “You Shall Not Kill” did sometimes came to the forefront. I myself had SS-Instructors and was by experts de-programmed down to the age of three, they could not erase the first little prayers taught to you by your parents or grand parents.
      PS.: I was not a member of the SS. I did live, however, in Camp Dachau, the Hospital Complex House 52B next to the coal bunker where the massacre took place until January 1957.

  20. Nice to see the old “the guards were Waffen SS soldiers” chestnut trotted out again. no one ever can explain which unit of the Waffen SS they are ( I know they had WSS cammo but the place was the centre of SS uniform production and distribution). Many non Waffen SS got themselves camouflaged uniforms. Also if they were Waffen SS why do they have a 24-year old named Wicker (a former SS-TK member who served for most of the war in the SS-WVHA at Natzweiler-Struthof, Cochem, Mannheim-Sandhofen camps as well as Dachau and a short stint at Junkerschule Bad Tölz) who has never seen a days combat in command.

    I can’t see any relevance in the statement that Dachau was not a “death camp for Jews” and suggest it was the testimony of Jews that provoked the reaction. Dachau was a death camp, from Jan- April 1945, over 100 Dachau inmates died PER DAY of overwork, execution, malnutrition and illness – well over 12,000 total – and that number doesn’t include the 2,000 found dead on the second “death train” outside the camp or the 1,000+ plus inmates that died on the forced death march to Tegernsee, nor the 2,466 inmates who died between April 29th and June 16th 1945 despite the best efforts of US XV Corps medical personnel. Add to that the Luftwaffe medical experiments and you have a death camp by most peoples standards.

    • Thank you for your comment. I see now that I did not make my blog post clear enough. I did not mean to imply that the guards at Dachau were Waffen-SS soldiers. The guards at Dachau were SS-Totenkopfverbände (Death’s Head) soldiers. Almost all of the regular guards had left the Dachau camp the night before the camp was liberated; they had been replaced by Waffen-SS soldiers who were sent, directly from the battlefield, to help with the surrender of the camp. These soldiers, who were Hungarian, did not stop at the uniform factory at Dachau and pick up camouflage uniforms to wear. Hungary was an ally of Germany.

      You can read about the SS on my website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/DachauScrapbook/SScamp/SSHistory.html

      I checked out my own website and found this information about Lt. Wicker:

      From August 3, 1943 to November 24, 1943, Wicker was in training at the Officer Candidate School at Bad Tölz. After successfully completing the officer training course for disabled soldiers, Wicker was assigned to Amtsgruppe D des SS-Wirtschafts-Verwaltungshauptamt in Berlin-Oranienburg with the rank of SS-Oberscharführer. Amtsgruppe D of the SS-WHVA was the concentration camp branch of the SS Economic and Administrative Main Office.

      Lt. Wicker was a Waffen-SS soldier who had been wounded in combat; he was then transferred to the SS-Totenkopfverbände and became a concentration camp guard. The WVHA was the admistrative office which controlled all the camps. This office was originally at Dachau, but it was later moved to Oranienburg, near Berlin. Lt. Wicker was sent to Bad Tölz for retraining after he was wounded.

      You can read all about Lt. Wicker on my website at
      http://www.scrapbookpages.com/DachauScrapbook/DachauLiberation/Wicker.html

      The term “death camp” as used in reference to the Holocaust refers to six camps: Treblinka, Belzec, Sobibor, Chelmno, Auschwitz and Majdanek. “Death camp” does not mean a place where prisoners died; it means a camp where Jews were sent to be killed. Dachau does not fit that definition; Jews were sent to Dachau, but not for the purpose of deliberately killing them.

      You can read about the death statistics at Dachau on my website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/DachauScrapbook/deathstatistics.html

      I did not mean to imply that “the testimony of the Jews provoked the reaction.” The Dachau massacre was provoked by the sight of the “death train.”

      You can read about the “death train” on my website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/DachauScrapbook/DachauLiberation/DeathTrain.html

    • No one can deny Dachau was a death camp, when over 50 inmates died PER DAY, under American administration.

      Comment by Eager for Answers — June 19, 2012 @ 5:40 pm

      • evidently there are readers here who do not seem to understand that the terminology “death camp” refers as you say to the Operation Reinhardt camps. one wonders if these readers are simply naïve in understanding how and why conditions were what they were in Germany in April 1945 or are disingenuously making every holding facility a “death camp” and every German a Jewi-killing nazi.

        Comment by schlageter — June 19, 2012 @ 6:43 pm

        • You can split hairs and come up with all kinds of statistics, but you are only fooling yourself. Dachau was a Nazi death camp up until the time it was liberated by American soldiers. The American soldiers that liberated the camp had been in constant combat for several months. They were young, tired, scared, sad, and angry. These GI’s didn’t want to be in Europe seeing their friends killed and becoming killers themselves. They were there because Germany declared war on the United States. Perhaps the Waffen-SS should have done a better job explaining to the GI’s that Dachau was just a holding camp and not a “death camp”? In the GI’s defense, the 39 rail cars full of dead bodies probably confused them. The GI’s knew what they did was wrong, and they didn’t claim that they did it because they were simply “following orders”.

          Comment by Aaron Jones — September 24, 2013 @ 9:33 pm

          • You are correct that Dachau was a “death camp” at the time that the American soldiers arrived on April 29, 1945. The Nazis did not use the term “death camp.” This was a term made up by the Americans because there was a typhus epidemic in progress, when they arrived, and around 400 prisoners were dying PER DAY.

            There were 2,539 Jews at the Dachau main camp when it was liberated, and most of them had just arrived during the last two weeks before the camp was liberated.

            The book entitled “Dachau Liberated: The Official Report of the US Seventh Army, published in 1945”, mentions that 14,700 deaths had occurred at Dachau in the first quarter of 1945. Most of these deaths were due to the typhus epidemic.

            Paul Berben, a prisoner in the camp, wrote a book entitled “Dachau, the Official History 1933 – 1945”, in which he stated that 2,888 prisoners had died at Dachau in January 1945, 3,977 prisoners had died in February, 3,668 had died in March and 2,625 had died in April, for a total of 13,158 in the first four months of 1945. Most of these deaths were caused by typhus.

            In the month of May 1945, an additional 2,226 Dachau prisoners died after the Dachau camp was liberated. There were 196 more deaths in June before the typhus epidemic was finally stopped by the use of DDT and the vaccination of all the prisoners.

            The Nazis did not use the term “death camp.” It was the Allies who designated some of the camps “death camps” or extermination camps AFTER the war.

            You wrote: ” In the GI’s defense, the 39 rail cars full of dead bodies probably confused them.”

            You are correct that the American Soldiers did not realize that the bodies on the train were the bodies of prisoners who had been killed by American bullets when the train was strafed by American planes. This was proved at the trial of Hans Merbach which you can read about at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/DachauScrapbook/DachauTrials/HansMerbach.html

            A Jewish prisoner on the train testified that the prisoners were killed by American bullets. The train had taken 20 days to go 220 miles because American planes had bombed the tracks. The American liberators then went inside the SS garrison and killed soldiers who were stationed there; the victims were German soldiers who had nothing to do with the train.

          • Those American troops who committed the massacre at Dacau are criminals, just, simple criminals, like murders, serial killers, rapists and child molesters. There are the worst of the worst of criminals. Nothing in this world can excuse the crime they committed. Those soldiers, I meant, those narcissistic and psychopaths cowards who committed that atrocity deserve to rotten in hell for eternity, along with their rotten children. I am a soldier and I have been in war and I would rather kill myself before abusing and/ or murdering the defeated enemy. Only the wicked, the coward and the poor of heart commit crimes of this nature. The grandfather of the person who wrote this story is a piece of shit of a human being; he and the rest of the soldiers that participated in this massacre are not better than a child molester, a serial killer or a rapist.

        • Anyone in the SS or Waffen SS deserved death for their warcrimes, whether at Dachau or in actionen in the East, or in the other camps, or for their part in sending Europe’s Jews, Gypsies, Homosexuals, etc., to their dehumanisation and deaths. And this goes even more for the Hungarians in the SS.

          • The Americans who “liberated” Dachau and shot 120 innocent SS men deserves to hang.

            • No such thing as an innocent SS man. They all deserved the same fate.

              • I wrote about the SS men on this page of my website: http://www.scrapbookpages.com/DachauScrapbook/SScamp/SSHistory.html

                This quote is from my website:
                Begin quote
                At the Nuremberg International Military Tribunal, SS Lt. General Ernst Kaltenbrunner testified that there were 13 Stammlager (main concentration camps) in the Nazi camp system. One of these camps was Matzgau, located near Danzig; it was a camp where SS guards were imprisoned for offenses such as physical mistreatment of concentration camp prisoners, embezzlement, or theft. Yet tour guides at Dachau routinely tell visitors that the guards could do anything they wanted to with regard to abusing or killing the prisoners.
                End quote

                I also wrote about the SS in this blog post: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2010/05/25/ss-soldiers-have-an-undeserved-bad-reputation/

                If Germany had won World War II, would all Allied soldiers be “war criminals”?

                Do soldiers in a war have to be traitors to their country in order to NOT be war criminals?

                Comment by furtherglory — November 1, 2014 @ 11:20 am

                • Wow, you Nazi’s love some good old revisionist history! I’m sure General Kaltenbrunner couldn’t possibly have been lying;) Thank God those SS guards were shot. Too bad we didn’t get all of them! And as to your war criminal comment, the allies weren’t the ones engaged in genocide.

                  Comment by crosscon — November 5, 2014 @ 3:33 pm

    • What a crock of shit and lies. Your numbers are falsified in the extreme, and you neglected to mention the REAL reason ALL people were dying, including many Germans, because the evil allies bombed their foodand medical supply rail lines to the prisons where the Antichrist commies worked.

      Comment by KarmaQueen — April 24, 2015 @ 10:23 am

      • You nazi loving, short lived memory, glorified racists should really be torn from limb to limb. You try to scew the truth to make it work for your own agendas. You spew lies and denegrate everyone else except those who obviously committed war crimes. Yet you fail to notice how unbelievably naive you really are! You can’t see beyond your own Nazi prejudices! In your world everyone is a storm trouper look alike just like back in the day! In your world everyone who isn’t a nazi cannot be as important as you!
        In the end you are the real casualties of war, because its your hate that keeps you from living an open and care free life!
