Rudolf Hoess had an affair with Elenore Hodys but he did NOT have her murdered

Several days ago, I wanted to answer a comment made by Ken Kelso on this post on another person’s blog. Ken commented on something that Brigitte Hoess, the granddaughter of Rudolf Hoess, said about him: “How can there be so many survivors if so many had been killed?’.

I think that Brigitte has asked a legitimate question.  There does seem to be a lot of Holocaust survivors, many of them still alive, 70 years after they escaped the gas chambers.  I previously blogged about Brigitte here.

I am quoting Ken Kelso’s comment (which has now disappeared) in which he answers Brigitte’s question:

First the Nazis kept records of all the Jews and other civilians they murdered.
The fact she makes such a lying comment shows how evil this woman is.

Then she tries to make excuses for her genocidal father by saying he had no choice.
Wrong! Hoess had Jews slaughtered in the gas chamber because he was a sadist murderer.

Its also well known, Hoess had an affair with a female prisoner in Aushwitz and was afraid his wife would find out about her, so Hoess sent her to the gas chamber and had her murdered. Why did Hoess have this innocent woman murdered? That was his choice.
This shows how evil this sadist Hoess was.

Then she tries to blame the British for saying her Father admitted to murdering 1 million Jews, instead of the mass murderer her father was.
I hope this woman dies of cancer soon.
It will be one less evil person on this planet.

The female prisoner, with whom Rudolf Hoess had an affair, while he was the Commandant at Auschwitz, was Eleanore Hodys.  Hoess did NOT have her murdered.  On the contrary, Eleanore was transferred out of the Auschwitz camp, and Hoess lost his job as the result of having this affair.

Hoess was relieved of his duties as Commandant of Auschwitz-Birkenau complex and was sent to Oranienburg to replace Arthur Liebehenschel as the Senior Director of WVHA, the SS Economic Department.

On December 1, 1944, Liebehenschel became the new Commandant of Auschwitz, but only the Auschwitz I camp, not the whole Auschwitz-Birkenau complex.

Dr. Georg Konrad Morgen, an SS judge, who had been assigned to investigate corruption in the Auschwitz camp, allegedly learned of the affair and fired Hoess from his position as Commandant of Auschwitz-Birkenau because of this.

After Eleanor Hodys wound up at Dachau, she told her sad story to the American soldiers who liberated Dachau.  I quoted extensively from the story told by Eleanore Hodys on this blog post.
