Residents of the town of Dachau were forced to view the atrocities in the Dachau camp after it was liberated

Filed under: Dachau, Germany, Holocaust, World War II — Tags: , — furtherglory @ 11:37 am

Today I read a blog post, written by a follower of my blog; you can read his blog post for yourself here.

This quote is from his blog post:

Below are photographs of an article entitled “Are Germans Human?” which appeared in the July 1945 edition of Woman’s Home Companion magazine, published by the Crowell-Collier Publishing Company of Park Avenue, New York City. The article was written by American war-correspondent Patricia Lochridge after her trip to the Bavarian town of Dachau, and its sensationalised concentration camp.

I originally wanted to track down this article due to its title, and Lochridge certainly had nothing but contempt for the Germans—even the children—she meet in Dachau, but what is really startling about her description of the Nazi horror camp, is the conspicuous absence of any mention of the gas chamber.

Lochridge writes in the article of being escorted around the town of Dachau by an “interpretor sergeant”, and meeting several Germans. She states: “The Americans liberated the camp three days earlier …”. Dachau was surrendered to the U.S. Army on April 29, 1945, meaning Lochridge likely toured the Dachau camp and town on May 2, 1945.

When I read that German citizens of Dachau were “likely” forced to tour the Dachau concentration camp “three days” after the camp was liberated, I remembered that I had read, in a book entitled Legacies of Dachau, written by Harold Marcuse, that the German tour of the camp took place on May 7, 1945, the same day that German citizens of the town of Dachau were forced to haul 2,400 corpses out of the camp.

Local farmers from the Dachau area were forced to haul the corpses of the Dachau prisoners, who had died in the typhus epidemic,  to Leitenberg, a hill near the camp, where they were buried in mass graves, even though their names were known. The farmers had to dress in their best Sunday clothes and the wagons had to take a circuitous route through the town of Dachau. The US Army had plenty of trucks and personnel for this task, but it was important to humiliate the locals and make them feel guilty.

This quote is from Legacies of Dachau:

While this burial work was taking place, an America officer decided to take a group of 25-30 responsible but not directly implicated Dachau notables on a tour of the Dachau concentration camp (illustration 9)  They were followed by journalists and an army film crew. […]  Patricia Lochridge, who had been an exchange student in Germany before the war and had accompanied the Dachau notables on their tour, sought out some of the involuntary participants a short time later and asked them about their reactions to what they had seen.

Were there two tours of Dachau, made by German citizens of the town?  As far as I know, there was only one tour of Dachau, taken by residents of the town.  Illustration 9 in Marcuse’s book shows the backsides of two mature men, wearing fedoras, who are looking at the bodies in the morgue room in Baracke X.  This room is adjacent to the shower room, which is now claimed to have been a “gas chamber,” although not for mass gassings.

In his blog post, which I quoted at the top of my post, the Black Rabbit expressed surprise that Lochridge did not mention the “gas chamber” in her magazine article.  On May 15, a group of four Congressmen gave their report on the Dachau gas chamber.  I previously blogged about the Congressmen and their report here.  The Congressmen had arrived at Dachau on May 1, 1945 and had perhaps written their report before the Americans had finished turning the shower room into a gas chamber.  The official visit to the “gas chamber” by the Congressmen was on May 3, 1945 when they were officially photographed inside the “gas chamber.”

Left to right,  in the photo above, the Congressmen are Senator Wherry from Nebraska, Senator Brooks from Illinois, Representative Vorhys from Ohio and Representative Richards from South Carolina. The American soldier who is standing between Senator Wherry and Senator Brooks is James Bolin. He is the third man from the left.

Were the bodies, found in the morgue room on the day of liberation, still there on May 7th when the Germans toured the camp?  That would have been 8 days after the camp was liberated.  These bodies were being kept for the benefit of American soldiers who were brought to see the atrocities at Dachau, on the orders of General Eisenhower, who wanted as many witnesses as possible to the German atrocities, in case that some day people would try to deny it.

On page 54 of his book Legacies of Dachau, Harold Marcuse wrote this:

Thus when news of Dachau’s liberation on 29 April reached the high command, General Patch ordered that the evidence of German brutality be left untouched awaiting inspections.  Four members of the congressional delegation toured Dachau on 1 May, within 48 hours of liberation.  The 18 member newspaper delegation arrived on 3 May. […] In a pre-tour briefing upon arrival in Paris, Eisenhower made clear to the delegation of journalists why the US government had brought them to Germany to tour the concentration camps. […]  He wanted somehow to make the American people know what sort of savages we were dealing with.

I read the whole article, written by Patricia Lochridge, and I didn’t see the word “typhus” but maybe I missed it.  Was she vaccinated for typhus before going inside the camp?  I did read that Lochridge was a graduate of Wellesley and also a graduate of the Columbia University School of Journalism. Columbia University was the home of the Frankfurt school, which included Herbert Marcuse, the grandfather of Harold Marcuse.  To his credit, Harold Marcuse did write about the typhus epidemic in his book Legacies of Dachau.

Lochridge wrote, in her article about the tour, that the mayor of Dachau was Edmund Suse, a name that I had never heard before, even though I have done extensive research on Dachau.  She mentioned that Suse was a “newly released” prisoner of Dachau, and had been “newly appointed” as the mayor, apparently by the American military.  Marcuse names 5 different mayors of Dachau, but the name Suse was not included.  Lochridge also mentioned that “two Polish girls” were working as “slaves” in a Dachau home.  Dachau was a camp primarily for men.  The few female prisoners worked in the homes of Dachau residents.

Patricia Lochridge wrote what was expected of a graduate of the Columbia School of Journalism.  Apparently, she was not told about the “gas chamber” at Dachau, or she most certainly would have included it in her story of the tour of the camp.  Her assignment was to demonize the German people, and “make the American people know what sort of savages” the Germans were; she accomplished that with her story.

The residents of the town of Dachau knew very well what was going on in the camp.  The SS guards came to the town to party with the locals, and two former prisoners of Dachau lived in the town.

The four-story building in the two photographs above is the former location of the Cafe Belstler, which was a popular spot for drinking and dancing during the years that the SS had a Training Camp and garrison west of the Dachau concentration camp. If there were any atrocities going on in the Dachau camp, the locals would have known about it.

If Longridge is still alive, she is probably kicking herself that she didn’t hang around long enough to witness the newly completed “gas chamber.”

    Were the Jews given the inhuman order to refrain putting their hands over the readily accessible shower heads to stop the release of the deadly gas?

    Comment by Eager For Answers — January 20, 2013 @ 7:34 pm

    • Very few Jews were tall enough to reach the showerheads. Back then, the Jews were famous for being short; many were around 5 feet tall. Today’s Jews are taller because they have mixed with non-Jews. Hitler would not allow that. Now such people are called “multi-ethnic.” Remember that Himmler originally wanted the SS men to be at least 6 ft. tall and have perfect teeth. I believe that the purpose of this rule was to eliminate any Jews that might try to join the SS; Himmler did not want men 5 ft. tall with a mouth full of gold teeth in the SS.

  2. Harold Marcuse writes:

    “Lochridge, who used pseudonyms in the article, wrote that the tour group was selected by the “newly liberated” and “newly appointed” mayor of Dachau. The person who most closely fits the bill is Georg Scherer, a participant in the 28 April uprising. Scherer, however, was released well before liberation, and was not “imprisoned for helping a French boy escape slave labor,” as Lochridge wrote.”

  3. I wonder why you seem to doubt the Holocaust narrative; hasn’t it been endorsed by the intellectual giants of our time?

    Comment by Eager For Answers — January 14, 2013 @ 3:47 pm

    • I watched the video. At 5:26 in the video, the narrator says (regarding Auschwitz) that “some were selected to work, the others were sent to the gas chambers, which were disguised as shower rooms.” As we hear these words, there is a photo of the door into the Dachau shower room, and another photo of a shower head in the Dachau shower room, followed by a shot of the east wall of the Dachau shower room. This is a very educational video; thanks for the link. It is very touching that these football players are given such an excellent education.

  4. What a reader of the original article wrote: “The meaning is crystal clear – the gas-chamber narrative was cooked-up between May 2 and 15.”

    I think the gas-chamber narrative was cooked-up long before. I think the Americans were converting this room into an alleged “gas chamber” between May 2 and 15. So IMO the idea was old but the implementation of this idea was underway in the beginning of May 45.

    I said the idea was old because some anglo-saxon newspapers ‘reported’ a “gas room” at Dachau camp as early as 1937.

    • There is a book entitled The Women Who Wrote the War: The Compelling Story of the Path-Breaking Women by Nancy Caldwell Sorel, parts of which you can read online.

      It is mentioned in this book that Patricia Lochridge arrived one day after Dachau was liberated. So she arrived on April 30, 1945. The gas chamber at Dachau had not yet been constructed. The four Congressmen, who arrived on May 1, 1945, described the “gas chamber” in their report, as having a 10 ft. ceiling. Work on the gas chamber probably started on May 2, 1945 and on May 3, 1945, it was ready for the four Congressmen to be photographed, standing inside it. The May 3rd photo shows a room with a 7.6 ft. ceiling.

      It is possible that the German citizens of the town of Dachau were not shown the newly constructed “gas chamber.” The German people have a reputation for being very intelligent, so it is possible that the American liberators did not want to show the Germans the new construction, for fear that they would make some comment about the shower heads being stuck in the ceiling with no pipes. On May 7, 1945, when the German residents of Dachau toured the camp, the new “gas chamber” had only been completed a few days before, and visitors were being told that the poison gas came through the shower heads that had no visible pipes.

        Well done FG for pinning down the dates. That’s what I believe happened, the “gas chamber” just wasn’t ready to show Lochridge when she was there.

        To be fair to that Anonymous commentator, he was referring to yet more imbecilism from Yeager. He was not insisting there was no plans afoot to present Dachau as having possessed a gas chamber. Although those are two startlingly early claims about gassings you’ve found. They reminded me of this:

        • This explains why the shower room at Dachau had metal gas-proof doors. Poison gas was used as a weapon in World War One, and the Germans anticipated that it would be used again in World War II. That’s why they put gas proof doors on the shower room, so they would have a place to go in case of a gas attack. The building where the “gas chamber” (shower room) was located at Dachau was outside the prison enclosure and convenient to the SS garrison next door to the concentration camp. The shower room for the prisoners at Dachau was in the Administration building, which is now a Museum. Thanks or giving us this link to your blog.

        • Correction:”Mr Anonymous” was not responding to me with that sentence at all! (He responded to me with something else, although it’s not a response.) Anonymous was backing up what you wrote — that this article “proves” that the gas chamber at Dachau story was invented between May 2 and 15. I was pointing out that it “proves” no such thing. That is because this story was not written by Patricia Lochridge — a recent graduate from journalism school who was engaged by the US military to be part of their post-war psychological operations (propaganda team) to play whatever role they gave her. This story was written by military psyop writers much higher than her, and her name put on it. What could be more appealing for Ladies Home Companion readers than a young American female “journalist” dressed in GI clothing telling them the “truth” about Germany. What a heroine! Of course, they would trust every word she wrote!

          If we don’t make correct and discerning judgements about the SOURCE of the information we use, how good can it be? If the source is not reliable, it just adds to the confusion, which is what disinfo is all about. Just saying.

          It’s true, I take this subject very seriously. It’s not a game for me, or a hobby with little consequence.

          • I tracked down, and purchased (cost me about US $35 inc p&p) this 67 year old magazine, and uploaded to the web, for everyone to see, a very early article on Dachau in which the gas chamber is not mentioned. That’s what I wrote. That’s “the story” in my blog post. Admittedly I didn’t not spoon feed people the obvious i.e. this is a war-time propaganda article on a German concentration camp, but it’s not my style to spell out the ridiculously obvious, and only you ever complain about it.

            Yeager wrote >>>> “Anonymous was backing up what you wrote — that this article “proves” that the gas chamber at Dachau story was invented between May 2 and 15.”

            I wrote no such thing you idiot. He was referring to you.

            • Wrong again, BR. You always do have trouble with reading. Here is what he wrote:

              Anonymous10 January 2013 03:07

              “Excellent work as always. The meaning is crystal clear – the gas-chamber narrative was cooked-up between May 2 and 15. Please don’t dumb-down your reporting for the likes of Carolyn.”

              He’s telling you that you do excellent work and your meaning is that the gas chamber narrative was invented between May 2-15. You did not correct him. He is talking to YOU and only referring to me in the last sentence. Not addressing me. Not responding to me. “Referring” to me is not “responding” to me.

              You wrote in your blog: “Dachau was surrendered to the U.S. Army on April 29, 1945, meaning Lochridge likely toured the Dachau camp and town on May 2, 1945. On May 15, 1945, a report on Dachau, in which the gas chamber featured, was presented to the U.S. Congress.”

              The reason I complain about your blog is because you post so much Jewish propaganda on it in a way that it is not clear it is lies. What’s with the female Nazi porn queen with the whip on your banner?

                • The only answers you ever come up with are childish insults. We know why people do that, don’t we?

                  A question I’d really like you to answer is: What is the objective of your blog? What are you trying to accomplish in the long run? Maybe nothing? Maybe you just like to look things up, and decided to start a blog and post the stuff you find there. You don’t have a developed political or social philosophy … or do you? The fact that people like to come to your blog to see what’s there keeps you at it. That’s what it seems to me.

          • In researching Patricia Lochridge, I found this information:
            Begin quote:
            Pat Lochridge […] had known the Roosevelts in Washington (the fact that she had come down with polio when young had cemented their relationship). End Quote

            In other words, Pat Lochridge was no ordinary reporter. She had been hobnobbing with President Franklin Roosevelt and his family before she became a reporter. She arrived at Dachau, along with Lee Miller, whose photos of Dachau are copyrighted and cannot be used without permission. I had to take a Lee Miller photo off my Dachau website when her estate complained.

            I also learned that Marguerite Higgins, who was there when the Dachau camp was surrendered by Lt. Wicker, was only 24 years old at that time. All this was in the book about the women reporters and photographers, who covered the liberation of the camps.

            • That’s interesting, but surely if:

              “This story was written by military psyop writers much higher than her, and her name put on it.” (claims Yeager)

              They’d surely not have forgotten to mentioned the homicidal gas chamber.

                As the link to the original article is broken, it’s hard to read what is written in it, except for titles and pictures. I note there are many pics of Dachau but none of the alleged “gas chamber”. I think it was still under construction at that time.

                • Just realized the U.S. congressmen toured the camp and the gas chamber on May 3, 1945. So my previous comment is not relevant. Sorry.

              • Why talk about newly invented gaz chambers when the objective of the propaganda directed at women was to tell them not to feel sorry for the Germans — they’re a nasty people, even the children. Women notoriously want to forgive and forget. The Army didn’t want American women to do that. The Army under Eisenhower had plans to do terrible things to the German people; they had to be seen to “deserve” it.

                Comment by Carolyn Yeager — January 15, 2013 @ 10:31 pm

                • Strangely, no one has addressed the issue of the headline of the article. Headlines are written by the copy editor, not by the writer of an article. The headline “Are the Germans Human?” is unforgivable, considering that 25% of Americans were German-American at that time. In places like Missouri, 75% of the population was German-American. Are German-Americans Human?

                  What does the headline on the article mean? Should we interpret it to mean that only Jews are human, and the German goyim are animals, according to the teaching of the Jewish religion?

                  Pat Lochridge arrived at Dachau, one day after Marguerite Higgins, who was present when the camp was surrendered to the Americans. Marguerite would have told her about being there, during the surrender. The Germans were humans, who surrendered the camp, without killing all the prisoners, unlike the American soldiers who proceeded to massacre the German guards, and give guns to the prisoners so that they could participate in killing the Germans. The headline should have read “Are American Soldiers Human?”

                  In the article, Lochridge mentioned that the German citizens of Dachau broke down when they saw the bodies piled up against the wooden shed on the outside of the Baracke X building. There was a pile of bodies of the German guards there too. Was that what caused the Dauchau citizens to break down?

                  Furtherglory, it was the title of the Londrigde article that enticed me to buy the magazine. I’ve collected quite a bit of anti-German propaganda, and Longridge’s article is fairly mild in comparison, and I do suspect it was the editors who gave it the “Are Germans Human?” title, If you look and the 2nd part, you’ll see an advert for War Bonds with the headline ‘Are Japs Human?’

                  At the bottom of this blog post, you’ll find links to some full-on hatred of all things Germanic before, during, and after the war.

                • Yes, I noticed the headline “Are Japs Human?” I was a child during World War II and I recall the extreme hatred for “the Japs.” There was no such hatred for the Germans DURING the war, at least not in Missouri, a state that was heavily populated with German-Americans.

                  The article by Sauermann does not mention anything about the number of ethnic Germans, in the country of Germany, declining because Germany would be occupied for the next 100 years and filled with African-American soldiers who would mate with the German girls and produce mixed-race babies.

                • Regarding the statements made by Marion Bennett, after his trip to Germany, I believe that he was being insincere in his comments. Bennett was from Missouri, although his name suggests that he was not German-American. He was saying what he was expected to say, after being one of those chosen by Eisenhower to tour the camps.

                  Buchenwald was the only camp that Bennett had seen when he made this statement. The situation at Buchenwald was not horrendous because the typhus epidemic was almost over at that camp. They still had coal to burn the bodies at Buchenwald. The prisoners had been in charge of the camp at Buchenwald, and it was the prisoners who had liberated the camp. There was not even a gas chamber at Buchenwald.

                  I believe that Bennett was making a facetious remark.

            • These young women were brought over, lots of secretaries too, to give the men a lift and to make it possible to have co-ed parties. It was all a big game because they had Germany all to themselves, with the Germans as their servants.

                Not only in Germany, Carolyn. In November 1945 the French girls wanted to see the ‘American liberators’ go back home too.

                But the GI’s behavior was even worse in Germany.

                • Thanks for that, Hermie. I have a few stories about the “social life” that was going on in the lead up to and during the Nuremberg ‘major war criminals’ trial. The visiting VIPs, like the senators FG writes about and others, had to be entertained, so they had parties to which all the female secretaries and clerks were invited. It was just loads of fun, with plenty of booze and dancing. The ‘girls’ were also invited on a trip or two — a ‘tour’ like Patricia went on — so they could ‘see’ Germany and take home their memories. One woman’s memories that I read were superficial, to say the least. She was entirely clueless as to what was really going on.

                • My pleasure, Carolyn. 😉

                  There exists a good French documentary on the mass rapes perpetrated by the American ‘liberators’ (see below). I don’t know if you’ve heard about it and if it has been translated into English.

                  I’ve read the American occupying forces deliberately provided insufficient food rations in order to force German women and younger girls to be prostitutes for their soldiers. If you have info about that, I would be glad to have them.

  5. Frankfurt School members Herbert Marcuse, Theodore Adorno, Frans Neumann and Max Horkheimer worked for the OSS. Marcuse, Mickey Marcus and Murray C. Bernays (all of them Jewish) designed the Nuremburg trials. “Nazi War Crimes, US Intelligence and Selective Prosecution at Nuremberg: Controversies Regarding the Role of the Office of Strategic Services” by Michael Salter almost, but not quite blows the lid off The Frankfurt School’s behind the scenes manipulation of the history of the Third Reich, use of selective and false evidence and hearsay testimony from paid witnesses at Nuremburg. http://www.amazon.com/Crimes-Intelligence-Selective-Prosecution-Nuremberg/dp/190438580X/ref=la_B001H6QP9Q_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1358197527&sr=1-2. Although I haven’t read his book I would not trust Harold Marcuse to write an unbiased history of Dachau.

    • Of course, the book is not unbiased. It gives the “official” history of Dachau, or what you are required to believe. If he had written the true history, he would have been renditioned to Germany and put on trial, followed by 5 years in prison.
