European Court of Justice maintains that the Nazi gas chambers are a “historic fact”

You can read a news story, which explains the difference between the laws, pertaining to the Armenian genocide and the Holocaust, at http://www.haaretz.com/news/world/1.564226

This quote is from the news article:

The [European Court of Justice] drew a distinction between the Armenian case and [the] appeals it has rejected against convictions for denying the Nazi German Holocaust against the Jews during World War II.

“In those cases [convictions for denying the Holocaust], the applicants had denied the historical facts even though [the historical facts] were sometimes very concrete, such as the existence of the gas chambers. They had denied the crimes perpetrated by the Nazi regime for which there had been a clear legal basis. Lastly, the acts that they had called into question had been found by an international court to be clearly established.”

What “international court” was it that “clearly established” the “existence of gas chambers”?  Is this a reference to the Nuremberg International Military Tribunal, where Rudolf Hoess, the Commandant of Auschwitz-Birkenau, testified about the gas chambers?

I previously blogged about the Nuremberg testimony of Rudolf Hoess at https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2012/10/06/when-rudolf-hoess-stood-trial-at-nuremberg/

Testimony at the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg also established the “historical facts” that 4 million people were killed by the Nazis at Auschwitz and that 1.5 million people were murdered at Majdanek.  These “historical facts” have now fallen by the wayside, but it is still a crime to “call into question” the gas chambers.  It used to be a crime to claim that the gas chamber in the main Auschwitz camp was a reconstruction, but now the reconstruction is being admitted.

You can see photos of the reconstructed gas chamber at Auschwitz on my website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/AuschwitzScrapbook/Tour/Auschwitz1/Auschwitz08.html

Just because the Auschwitz gas chamber is a reconstruction doesn’t mean that you can deny that the room was a gas chamber at one time.  The belief in gas chambers is still required by law.

  1. I once had some literature that I got from Auschwitz in 1991 which unfortunately I seem to have mislaid, but anyway, it stated that the Nazis planted birch trees around Birkenau because they grew quickly and would cover up their crimes.

    But Birkenau is named after the birch trees, surely. And of course they are visible in photos. They would not name a camp after some trees and then plant the trees later, would they?

    Such is the nonsense, but believe it you must. Or else…..

  2. Pre-2009 sign in Majdanek homicidal gas chamber no.4 (the one in Building 41, adjacent to the shower room) read:

    “Eksperimental [sic] gas chamber for exterminating prisoners with Cyclone B thrown into the chamber through holes in the ceiling.”

    Post-2009, the new sign in precisely the same place, in precisely the same room reads:

    “The dressing room was also adapted to disinfect prisoners’ clothes, using a chemical known as Zyklon B. To active this, heated air was forced inside via pipes installed within the wall. The gas was ventilated through holes in the ceiling. The disinfected clothes were stored in the adjoining room (which currently displays a collection of Zyklon B cans).”

    For 63/64 years the Majdaenk museum claimed Jews were killed in this room with Zyklon B, but in 2008/9 they quietly dropped that claim. And people wonder why we question the other “homicidal gas chambers!”
