A news article, which you can read in full here, is headlined Smithsonian Red-faced after “Treblinka Star of David Tiles” Shown to be Not Jewish at All.
One of the regular readers of my blog alerted me to this new development. I had previously blogged about the work of Dr. Caroline Sturdy Colls in finding the Star of David tile, which she claimed was proof that Jews had been gassed at the Treblinka II camp.
This quote is from the news article:
The Smithsonian Institutes’ TV documentary division has been severely embarrassed with the revelation that its recently-released “Treblinka: Hitler’s Killing Machine” documentary—which claimed to have “proved” the existence of “gas chambers” at Treblinka because of the discovery of “tiles with Stars of David,” is an extremely amateurish hoax.
The Smithsonian advertised the documentary on its YouTube Channel by saying that “The watershed discovery of Star of David tiles confirms the existence of Treblinka’s gas chambers and becomes the key to reconstructing the death camp’s sinister workings.”
