Kurt Franz the last Commandant of Treblinka

I have been doing some more research on Treblinka II, one of the Nazi “death camps,” and Kurt Franz, the last Commandant of Treblinka II. (Treblinka I was a “labor camp.”) From this website, I have found a description of Kurt Franz, which mentions that he served in the Buchenwald camp in 1941, the same year that the zoo in Buchenwald was built by Karl Otto Koch.  I am now ready to concede that the photo that was found in the private album of Kurt Franz was taken at Buchenwald.  So The Black Rabbit of Inlé , who is a regular reader of my blog, is correct in identifying the photo of bears in a zoo, as a photo taken at Buchenwald, not Treblinka.  The photo of the bears was incorrectly identified by the Yad Vashem museum.

Why is all this important? It is important because there is a wealth of misinformation about the Holocaust and numerous Holocaust and World War II photos that are fake or misidentified.  It has gotten to the point that you can’t trust anything anymore.  A big Thank You to all the revisionists who are working hard on the Holocaust story. I happen to know that “the Black Rabbit” is young and British.  He is doing some fantastic work in setting the Holocaust story straight.  Thank God that there are young people today who are carrying on this important work.

The following quote is from the deathcamps.org website:

FRANZ, Kurt Hubert SS-Untersturmführer SS-Number: 319 906
17/01/1914 – 04/07/1998

BACKGROUND:
Not a member of NSDAP or affiliated organizations. Belonged to the Waffen-SS.

Born in Düsseldorf. Extended elementary school from 1920-1928 in Düsseldorf.
Since 1929 he was trained as a cook, at first in the restaurant “Hirschquelle”, then in “Hotel Wittelsbacher Hof” in Düsseldorf without final examination. Soldier during 1935 – 1937. In October 1937 he joined the Waffen-SS (3. SS-Totenkopfstandarte Thüringen). End of 1939 summoned to the Führer’s Chancellery and detailed for service as cook in the euthanasia institutes at Grafeneck, Hartheim, Sonnenstein and Brandenburg.
As member of the 6th battalion he served at the Buchenwald concentration camp in 1941 (SS Clothing Department, perhaps cook).
On 30 January 1940 he was promoted SS-Unterscharführer, in 1941 (?) SS-Scharführer. During Spring 1942 ordered to the Generalgouvernement.

Treblinka is very important to the Holocaust story because it is second only to Auschwitz in the number of Jews who were allegedly killed by the Nazis. Between 700,000 and 900,000 Jews were allegedly killed at Treblinka, compared to an estimated 1.1 million to 1.5 million who died of all causes at Auschwitz.

The first Commandant of the Treblinka “death camp” was SS-Obersturmführer Irmfried Eberl, who held this position from July 1942 to September 1942. He was succeeded by SS-Obersturmführer Franz Stangl, who served as the Commandant from September 1942 to August 1943. Prior to his service at Treblinka, Stangl had been the commander of the Sobibor death camp and before that, he was on the staff at Schloss Hartheim, where mentally and physically disabled Germans were sent to be killed.

The 3rd and last Commandant of the Treblinka “death camp” was SS-Untersturmführer Kurt Franz who was the commander from August 1943 until October 3, 1943. Franz was a handsome man who was nicknamed “Lalka” by the Jewish prisoners at Treblinka. The word Lalka, or Lalke, is the Yiddish word for doll.

The Treblinka “death camp” was located 62 miles northeast of Warsaw, near the railroad junction at the village of Malkinia Górna, which is located 1.5 miles from the train station in the tiny village of Treblinka.

Raul Hilberg stated in his three-volume book, The Destruction of the European Jews, that there were six Nazi extermination centers, including Treblinka. The other extermination camps were at Belzec, Sobibor, Chelmno, Majdanek and Auschwitz-Birkenau. All six of the “death camps” were located in what is now Poland. The last two camps in the list also functioned as forced labor camps (Zwangsarbeitslager), and were still operational shortly before being liberated by the Soviet Union towards the end of the war in 1944 and early 1945.

The camps at Treblinka, Belzec, Sobibor and Chelmno had already been liquidated by the Germans before the Soviet soldiers arrived, and there was no remaining evidence of the extermination of millions of Jews. The combined total of the deaths at Treblinka, Belzec and Sobibor was 1.5 million, according to Raul Hilberg.

This quote, regarding the service of Kurt Franz at Treblinka, is from the deathcamps.org website:

SERVICE AT BELZEC AND TREBLINKA: [Kurt Franz] Kommandant of Treblinka, from 27 August 1943 – November 1943.In spring 1942 (as SS-Scharführer) to Belzec. On 20 April promoted SS-Oberscharführer. He worked as cook, and trained the Ukrainian guards there. In August/September 1942 he was ordered to Treblinka where he took over the Ukrainian guard squads and rose to be deputy camp commandant. Commandant of Treblinka, from 27 August 1943 until November 1943. Promoted SS-Untersturmführer on 21 June 1943.Franz was the dominant personality in Treblinka when it came to the day-to-day running of the camp, and especially with regard to the prisoners. To the prisoners Franz was the cruellest and most frightening among the SS personnel in the camp. His physical appearance was extremely deceiving: he was nice-looking; he had a round, almost baby- face; and he was younger than most of the other SS men. He was therefore nicknamed “Lalke” (“doll” in Yiddish) by the prisoners. However, he was a murderer and a sadist who made the prisoners’ lives a nightmare.

Not according to the book Treblinka, written by Jean-Francois Steiner. In his book, Steiner devotes a lot of pages to the description of the parties and marriages in the Treblinka II camp.  Kurt Franz brought in women for the Jews who worked in the camp, but he performed marriages before men and women were allowed to live together.  This indicates to me that Kurt Franz was a very moral and considerate man.  He also set up an orchestra for the workers at Treblinka. How could a man like that be a “murderer and a sadist”?  I think that Kurt Franz was a decent man, and because of this, he had to be demonized by the Holocaustians.

This quote is also from the deathcamps.org website:

Mostly, when Franz made the rounds of the Lower Camp and the extermination area, his dog Barry accompanied him (Barry’s first owner was Paul Groth, Sobibor). Depending on his mood, Franz set the dog on inmates who for some reason had attracted his attention. The command to which the dog responded was, “Man, go get that dog!” By “Man” Franz meant Barry; the “dog” was the inmate whom Barry was supposed to attack. Barry would bite his victim wherever he could catch him. The dog was the size of a calf so that, unlike smaller dogs, his shoulders reached to the buttocks and abdomen of a man of average size. For this reason he frequently bit his victims in the buttocks, in the abdomen and often, in the case of male inmates, in the genitals, sometimes partially biting them off. When the inmate was not very strong, the dog could knock him to the ground and maul him beyond recognition. But when the defendant Franz was not around, Barry was a different dog. With Franz not there to influence him, he allowed himself to be petted and even teased, without harming anyone. (Donat, p.313)

The dog named Barry

The dog named Barry

Note that the dog named Barry was at Sobibor at one time.  This settles another question about Barry, who was apparently at both Sobibor and Treblinka. However, I am not convinced that Kurt Franz actually commanded his dog to attack the prisoners.

If  Treblinka was not a “death camp,” what happened to the 900,000 people who were sent there? Treblinka was one of the Operation Reinhard camps, which the Nazis set up after the Wannsee Conference.  The Nazis claimed that these camps were set up as transit camps for Jewish “Transportation to the East.”

Is there any evidence that the Jews were resettled in the East?

Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler, the head of all the Nazi camps, was responsible resettling many people during World War II.  By March 1943,  he had resettled 629,000 ethnic Germans from the Baltic countries into the Polish territory that had been incorporated into the Greater German Reich in October 1939.

Himmler was also responsible for deporting 365,000 Poles, from the part of Poland that was incorporated into the Greater German Reich, to occupied Poland. He also deported 295,000 citizens from Luxembourg and the provinces of Alsace and Lorraine, after these places were incorporated into the Greater German Reich.

All of this had been accomplished by Himmler by March 1943 when Dr. Korherr, who was Himmler’s chief statistician, made his report on what had happened to the Jews who were living in Eastern Poland.

In 2000, a document called the Höfle Telegram was discovered by Holocaust historians in the Public Records Office in Kew, England. This document consists of two intercepted encoded messages, both of which were sent from Lublin on January 11, 1943 by SS-Sturmbannführer Hermann Höfle, and marked “state secret.” One message was sent to Adolf Eichmann in the Reich Security Main Office (RSHA) in Berlin and the other to SS-Oberststurmbannführer Franz Heim, deputy commander of the Security Police (SIPO) at the headquarters of German-occupied Poland in Krakow.

The encoded messages gave the number of arrivals at the Operation Reinhard camps during the previous two weeks and the following totals for Jews sent to the Treblinka, Belzec, Sobibor and Lublin (Majdanek) camps in 1942:

Treblinka, 71,355; Belzec, 434,500; Sobibor, 101,370; and Majdanek, 24,733.

The number for Treblinka, 71,355, was a typographical error; the correct number should be 713,555, based on the total given. The total “arrivals” for the four camps matches the total of 1,274,166 “evacuated” Jews in the Korherr Report.

So there is proof that 1.275 million Jews were transported to the East, but where is the proof that they were killed?

  1. If this was all fake why didn’t Kurt Franz come out and be brave like all the millions of German frontline soldiers in ww2 and deny the holocaust even if it meant death. Millions of germans died for Germany in ww2 do he could have done it if he had some balls

    Comment by Truthinhistory — January 14, 2017 @ 7:38 pm

  2. A proof that they were evacuated ???? Oh yeah ? Well…where then ? And where would they have been sent ?? What a nonsense…
    Franz himself admitted that Jews were gassed in Treblinka (and in Belzec too, where he had served before): he just denied he was responsible of anything, pretending he was just the Chief of the guards…despite the accusations of former Treblinka personnels (who thus acknowledged too that jews were gassed in mass in that camp)., that led to his convictikon and his life sentence…
    “Evacuated” or “transit camp” were just internal code-names within the SS, as for “sent to,the East” or sent to labour – as if kids and even new borns or old people could work.
    So, on the extermination side, you have testimonies from survivors and SS, various documents, even pictures regarding the extermination by shootings in former USSR. Tell me, on the evacuation side, what proof do you have ? None, not even registration of trains evacuating the jews from these camps to some other places “to the East”, no testimony from any guard/SS man, no survivor… Strange isn’t it ?
    Pure nonsense.

  5. I have been searching for years for the “smoking gun” tbat proves the atrocities took place.. Piles of emaciated corpses only proves there were dead people.. Many have scolded me and with zeal would point to the defendants “confessions at nueremburgh.. That dosent do it either.. I myself would confess to anything if my genitalia were being crushed with a pair of pliers.. Every confession would in an american. court be disallowed… Its disconcerting that i. can’t find the proof when tthe world so.strongly believes otherwise…. I am not a holocaust

  6. “Transportation to the East” was of the many euphemisms covering terror invented by the Nazis the most notorious. Everyone knows it meant physical extermination (murder). If any of the Holocaust deniers want to look for proof of those millions of deaths they have no further to look than to compare the pre-war and post-war demographics of the relevant countries. Or the evidence everywhere else–for example the films that the defendants at Neuremberg called those “awful films)-which got them hanged. Or the transcripts of the testimony of Nazi defendants at trial, including Eichman in Israel.

  8. Here is a photo of Kurt Franz with three prisoners being disciplined on ‘punishment posts’ at Buchenwald camp.

    http://www.holocaustresearchproject.org/othercamps/buchenwald.html

    The photo is about halfway down the page on the right side.

    I have read several of your earlier blog entries that examine the conditions and circumstances around the Bible Students and the Jehovah’s Witnesses during WW2 in Germany. I believe that there was much political maneuvering, within the Watchtower organization and with key players in the SS, that resulted in a distinct separation between the two groups – the JWs and the Bible Students/Researchers – which resulted in those prisoners that were loyal to the New York Watchtower being given special treatment, and those who still followed the Bible Student/Russell doctrine of Zionism being selected out for adverse treatment and execution. (J. Rutherford abandoned the dual covenant doctrine around the time that he changed the name of his splinter group to Jehovah’s Witnesses in 1931).

    I am interested in knowing if anyone has done genealogical research on Kurt Franz.

    I realize it is a shot in the dark…but….would there be a possibility that Kurt Franz had family connections to Frederick Franz, one of the New York Watchtower presidents? Fred Franz took over as president of the Watchtower Society, along with Nathan Knorr, following the death of J. Rutherford in 1942.

    Thank you.

    • The photo in your link is a fake. According to Harold Marcuse, Professor of History at the University of California at Santa Barbara, this scene was created in 1958 for an East German DEFA film, which is why the photo is no longer used. Reference: H. Obenaus, “Das Foto vom Baumhängen: Ein Bild geht um die Welt,” in Stiftung Topographie des Terrors Berlin (ed.), Gedenkstätten-Rundbrief no. 68, Berlin, October 1995, pp. 3-8.

      I previously blogged about the “tree hanging” punishment at https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2012/11/07/was-the-tree-hanging-den-baum-hangen-punishment-used-at-auschwitz/

      I doubt that Kurt Franz was related to Frederick Franz. If they were related, this was a very distant relation. In any case, the fake photo does not show Kurt Franz. It is a still shot from a film made by the East German Communists. The fake photo hung in the Dachau Museum for a few years before it was taken down because it was a fake.

      • Kurt Franz has no shadow in that photo.

        Comment by benny — April 2, 2014 @ 4:32 pm

        • I don’t know what photo to which you are referring. I was a professional photographer back in the old days, so I know that it is entirely possible to take photos without shadows. This is easily done, by using two light sources. When taking photos outside, the sun can be one light source, and a flash gun held to the side of the camera, can be the other light source.

          Shadows can be avoided by taking the flash gun off the camera and holding it off to the side of the camera. Taking the reflector off the flash gun is another way to avoid shadows.

          A photo with a harsh shadow is the mark of an amateur photographer, or a press photographer who does not know how to take pictures. Sometimes, a photo with a shadow is deliberately done because the shadow is part of the composition of the photo.

  9. Thanks for your kind words Furtherglory.

    So, the bears picture could be from Franz’s album then. I might see if I can get hold of the published version to make sure.

    Here’s an interesting letter someone wrote to Irving on the Hoettl telegram in early December 2012.

      Comment by The Black Rabbit of Inlé — January 2, 2013 @ 12:56 am

    • I read the letter in the link which you gave. Here is the most important part of the letter:

      “The Revisionist view is merely that, on that Eastern border of what was then Poland the railway gauge changed, and the ‘Aktion Reinhardt’ camps were around that boundary. While changing trains they came to Treblinka to be cleaned up and deloused &endash; that’s all.”

      I was one of the first “revisionists” (if not THE first) to point out that the railway gauge changed. I have written about this many times, starting in 1998.

      Comment by furtherglory — January 2, 2013 @ 5:21 am

      • So FG, are you now calling yourself a revisionist? Or a “revisionist?” Not so long ago you protested right here on this blog that you were not a revisionist and didn’t want anyone to think you were, or call you one. Your reason being you didn’t want your house to be burned down (a la Ernst Zündel) or to be arrested if/when you went to Europe. You also said “the revisionists” would never prevail. Are we seeing a new, bolder man who now wants to take credit for contributions to “revisionism?”

        Comment by Carolyn Yeager — January 2, 2013 @ 10:54 am

        • No, I am not calling myself a revisionist. To me, a revisionist is a serious researcher like Carlo Mattogno or Germar Rudolf. I am not taking credit for contributions to revisionism.

          I write for the masses, the current generation, the people who are not Holocaust experts. For example, my latest blog post about the “gas chamber” at Hartheim Castle. The average person believes the story that disabled people, who had one arm and one leg, and were blind and deaf, walked into a “gas chamber” which could not have been a gas chamber. The average person is not going to read the Leuchter report about Hartheim Castle, but they might see my blog post on Facebook.

          • “No, I am not calling myself a revisionist. To me, a revisionist is a serious researcher like Carlo Mattogno or Germar Rudolf. I am not taking credit for contributions to revisionism.”

            IMO as you revise History on your blog, you can be called a revisionist, FG. Not everybody can be a Mattogno or a Rudolf. But smaller contributions are not to be neglected because of that. Wasn’t it on blog that the most famous “Holocaust picture” of the world was recently debunked? 😉

            I know that being called a revisionist is risky. But I’m afraid you will be labelled “a denier” anyway because you doubt some aspects of the official Holocaust narrative. Irving may have claimed everywhere he was not a Holocaust revisionist, he is still systematically labelled “a leading Holocaust denier” in the media.

  10. “Prior to his service at Treblinka, Stangl had been the commander of the Sobibor death camp and before that, he was on the staff at Schloss Hartheim, where mentally and physically disabled Germans were sent to be killed.”

    Today’s classical Holocaust narrative tells us the gas chambers of the Nazi Euthanasia institutes were pre-Holocaust gas chambers that were refined and then applied in the Reinhardt camps. But in October 1945 an American military court was held and sued the workers of the Nazi Euthanasia institute of Hadamar. The interesting thing is these workers were judged for lethal injections and not for gassings. The “Nazi gas chambers” were already an important part of the American anti-nazi propaganda but the U.S. court ‘forgot’ to mention the alleged gas chamber of Hadamar. http://www.stormfront.org/forum/t894006/

    My theory is nobody was gassed in the Nazi Euthanasia Institutes (only lethal injections) and the alleged Nazi Euthanasia gas chambers were invented by the Holocaust propagandists in order to make the Holocaust gas chambers credible.

    Anyway this story is pretty ridiculous. The Nazis allegely gassed tens of thousands of people with bottles of pure carbon monoxide (very efficient killer) in their Euthanasia institutes, refined their gassing method and then used (Diesel?) engine exhaust (very poor killer because of low CO levels) to kill millions of jews in their Reinhardt camps. Total technical nonsense…

    Note: Hitler’s euthanasia order was found. It seems the Nazis didn’t always tried “to erase all traces of their crimes” as Holocaust propagandists claim… 😉

    • Hitler did indeed sign a decree authorising euthanasia for incurables who were suffering and had no chance of recovery after medical assessment . This was in September 1939 and was only coincidentally connected with the outbreak of WW2; in fact it was connected to a court case which had occurred earlier in the year. It was meant to help those poor unfortunates living in institutions with severe mental and physical disability. These in the 19th century would have died but were in the 20th century being kept alive and suffering.
      It was applied to a few hundred between 1940 and 1942 and gas was never used but injections including sodium pentothal were. Most of it is now mixed in with the legend of the H.

        Could you please tell me more about this court case, pete?

        I thought the euthanasia decree was due to the beginning of WW2 in order to avoid a pitiful slow death to the disabled people of the German asylums. The Nazis called the euthanasia of disabled people “the mercy death”. I’ve read somewhere 140,000 disabled people had died in the German asylums during WW1 because of a lack of food and care (due to the privations of war). I found this number interesting when compared to the 70,000 deaths (I believe that’s the official number) of the Nazi euthanasia program.

        I’d like to add that the euthanized people of Nazi Germany were only euthanized after their case had been examined by a council of doctors. It was a case by case program based on medical advice, not an arbitrary eugenist mass extermination as it is presented today. Nazi eugenism was applied by sterilizations (as in USA and other countries), not by euthanasia.

        Comment by hermie — January 2, 2013 @ 8:27 am

        • The 1939 case which was the origin of this program was that of Gerhard Kretschmar who was born near Leipzig with one arm and no legs and an IQ of an ” idiot” . His father requested that he be ” put to sleep” .. After research by the paediatrician the case was brought to the attention of Hitler who authorized a barbiturate injection to end the suffering in July 1939. This
          formed the basis of the later decree given to Brandt and Bouhler authorizing euthanasia by barbituarte injection in circumstances where the individual had ” an incurable illness and for the relief of their suffering after a panel of doctors had agreed “.
          Most of the fable which followed is gruelpropaganda.
          As Brandt said at his trial before he had his neck stretched;
          Nein. Ich fühle mich dadurch nicht belastet. […] Es war getragen von einem absolut menschlichen Empfinden, ich habe nie etwas anderes beabsichtigt und nie etwas anderes geglaubt, als daß diesen armseligen Wesen das qualvolle Dasein abgekürzt wird
          or I dont feel guilty. It was carried out for reasons of humanity. I hadn’t any other intention than that of relieving these poor people of their miserable suffering.

            Thank you very much, Pete. Very interesting.

            Absolutely all what we were told by media and academic ‘historians’ about the Third Reich is a lie. Lies are a normal thing during wars. But the continuation of these lies for so long after the end of WW2 clearly demonstrates the huge influence of Zionists on what people are told and what they are not told.

            Comment by hermie — January 2, 2013 @ 3:12 pm

            • The continuation of the propaganda serves various masters not only the Zionist agenda. It justifies WW2, the hegemony of the plutocratic US in 2012, the continued colonization of Palestine and the post 1945 borders of states such as Poland and the Czech republic which were created by massive ethnic cleansing. It also hides allied WW2 crimes such as the atomic bombing of civilian cities .

            It can be useful to add that Dr Brandt and the other Nazi doctors of the Nuremberg “Doctors’ trial” were tortured in order to make them ‘confess’ their ‘crimes’. Prof. Dr. Karl Brandt was the most prominent of the accused. He weighed 44kg (97 pounds) when brought to Nürnberg, a consequence of hardships and torture inflicted on him by the British. The main charge against him was the T4 program, with Dr. Eugene Kogon, the chief witness, but Kogon had to admit later that what he told was hearsay.

            It’s an important clarification because Brandt ‘confessed’ under ‘interrogation’ that Hitler personally suggested him to use carbon monoxide for the Euthanasia program. As the alleged Euthanasia gas chambers are supposely the first step of the Holocaust mythology, this detail is not unimportant.

    • You are correct that lethal injections were used in the Euthanasia Institutes. The subjects of the euthanasia were in no condition to WALK into a gas chamber. Such children are not born today because their deformed condition can be determined during pregnancy and the fetus is aborted.

      • I have only once been to an institution housing the severely mentally and physically disabled. These are the poor souls you wouldn’t ever see outside being taken for a day out.
        The visit left me stunned as it did the other students. Modern society shuns euthanasia but prefers if these souls were looked after out of sight. We do allow in 2012 however late abortions upto 24 weeks for severe abnormalities.

        • “I have only once been to an institution housing the severely mentally and physically disabled. These are the poor souls you wouldn’t ever see outside being taken for a day out.”

          And it was a modern institution. In the beginning of the 20th century these institutions were much worse. There were no drugs (or very few) to keep the mentally disabled people quiet. Many of them were even chained to a wall. The mental asylums of that time were like zoos and the life of these patients probably looked like an endless hell on earth.

      • Of course that such children are born. Many many people do not agree with abortions, or they are just not willing to undergo it. And these people are then either always home or you can see them using wheelchairs.

    • “Is there any evidence that the Jews were resettled in the East?” Any one who asks this question is blind illiterate or incredibly stupid.

  11. It should be noted that this article or blog is sourced entirely in 1) deathcamps.org website, 2) a novel by Jean-Francois Steiner which has been described by bonafide revisionists as “repulsive trash literature shaped by pathological fantasies,” 3) a little bit of Raul Hilberg and 4) the questionable Höfle telegram. On such as this does the timid conclusion rest.

  12. The dog story is a classic. Of course it was huge, how else could it be? And of course, without the evil Nazi standing around, it was as playful and cuddly as could be. Seems the evil Nazis could influence the behaviour of dogs too

  13. He has a wiki entry written by the ADL as most ” Nazi” entries are. You can rate the entry for accuracy and can see that less that 8 people have done that.
    Interestingly the wiki entry includes the claim that at the Treblinka Trials in 1965, Franz denied having ever killed a person, having ever set his dog on a Jew, and claimed to have only beaten a prisoner once. Then he was found guilty of collective murder of at least 300,000 people, 35 counts of murder involving at least 139 people, and for attempted murder.
    There was no forensic evidence produced to back the prosecution claim which was entirely based on hearsay evidence.

    • Of course. Witnesses are valuable evidence, and there were many of them. It was not possible to provide courts with physical evidence because the trial took place 15 years after the way and Franz himself admitted that they did everything to cover what happened there. And as you probably read on wikipedia, he kept the photos from that time with cheerful nostalgia.
      Even if they exaggerated what he really did, his sentence was definitely not too long!
