Update on the “Star of David” tiles found at the site of the Treblinka II camp

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.”

The Smithsonian YouTube Channel announcement that “Star of David” tiles have been found at Treblinka which “prove” the “gas chambers” at the camp.



  1. I have just learned that some readers are coming to my blog from Google Comment:

    Oh no! Students are being directed to my blog by google. Google is supposed to be kosher. Students are now being exposed to Holocaust Denial, and they probably don’t even realize it.

  2. I don’t know how to tell you this, but the tiles are significant evidence of the holocaust…Collis just got two different testimonies mixed up when she made her claim:

  3. I confused Schumel with someone else. Sorry.

  4. The British Jewish Brigade or some Ritchie Boys or maybe even Soviet Army interrogators probably got to Suchomel after they beat Oskar Dirlewanger to death in his cell. The confessions of captured German officers are about as trustworthy as the liewitness testimony of Irene Zisblatt.

    • I’m not endorsing Suchomel by any means; but your explanation doesn’t address the 4.6 hour interview in 1976 with Claude Lanzmann: There’s plenty wrong with this testimony but it’s not a forced confession (at least not directly).

      • What does a court of law do when “There’s plenty wrong with this testimony” ?

        Just wondering…

  5. Germar Rudolf and Dr. Fredrich Toben discussed this tile story last night (14/4/14) on Carolyn Yeager’s The Heretic’s Hour podcast. Both men are former academics who have served jail sentences in Germany for their public skepticism about the received history of the Holocaust. Their comments about the impossibility of forensic archeology doctoral candidate Caroline Sturdy-Colls receiving a Ph.D if she doesn’t go along with the official “Treblinka was a ‘death camp’ not a transit camp” narrative were informative. Previous digs at the site conducted by the Soviets and Poles along with the first GPR (Ground Penetration Radar) study conducted by Australian engineer Richard Kriege and why it was never released were also discussed.

  6. I prefer the testimony of a Nazi Officer, he. Suchomel — given AFTER his sentence…that and the fact that there are about 3 million missing Jews (most perished in treblinka, Sobibor and Auschwitz. You’re reaching big time.

    • Hey Foodie, sorry to be blunt, but just piss off with this Suchomel crap.

      Look at the facts and common sense rather than some attention grabbing old man

    • Suchomel was a Sudeten German. The Sudeten Germans were robbed, persecuted and occasionally murdered by the Prague regime before the Munich Agreement. After the war, the Sudeten Germans were raped, murdered and hideously tortured in large numbers. Then all the survivors were expelled from the country. Given that context, Suchomel probably had perverse fun playing the Good Soldier Schweik-giving his questioners all they wanted and more.

      And he wan’t an officer, he was a Sergeant.
