After the Rialto Holocaust assignment fiasco, students will now study “The Holocaust Chronicle,” a Jewish history of the Holocaust (updated)

Filed under: California, Dachau, Holocaust — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 11:50 am

Scroll down to read the update.

You can read about the new assignment for the students in the Rialto school district at http://www.sbsun.com/social-affairs/20140918/rialto-unified-details-plan-to-re-teach-holocaust-were-really-trying

Previously, the students were asked to study both sides of the Holocaust and write an essay, giving their opinion. Now these same students will be trained in only the Jewish side of the story.

The Holocaust Chronicle is a 709 page book, which weighs about 20 pounds. I have a copy of this book in my home library and I have read most of it.

I found this quote, regarding the identity of the girl on the cover:

The young girl pictured on our homepage, and on the cover of The Holocaust Chronicle book, was discovered by British troops in the typhus ward of the Bergen-Belsen, Germany, concentration camp in April 1945. She was one of approximately 60,000 inmates found alive at the camp. Of that number, at least 10,000 were so ravaged by disease and the effects of overwork that they died after their liberation.

The girl’s name, background, and ultimate fate are unknown. We do know that she looked into a camera in April 1945, and that she may very well have walked out of Bergen-Belsen, ready to make her future. If you feel you can identify this girl, please contact us by clicking here, and forward your remarks.

So you can’t get past the cover of this book without reading mistaken so-called facts about the Holocaust. There were 13,000 prisoners who allegedly died after Bergen-Belsen was voluntarily turned over to the British.  Bergen-Belsen was an EXCHANGE camp, a fact which should have been mentioned.

There are numerous mistakes in The Holocaust Chronicle.

In looking for the mistakes, I started with the section on Dachau. On page 578, there is a full-page photo of a Dachau guard who has been shot in the leg, so that he can’t escape the prisoners who are preparing to beat him to death with a shovel. There is an American soldier in the background, holding a pistol. He has his back turned and is ignoring the whole thing.  Is he the one who shot this man in the leg so that the inmates could beat the man to death with a shovel?

German was shot in the leg at Dachau so that the prisoners could beat him to death with a shovel

This is a photo that illustrates the “Dachau massacre,” but the book does not mention this war crime committed by the American liberators.  The man who is preparing to beat the man with a shovel is a Polish Resistance Fighter who was legally incarcerated at Dachau because he was an illegal combatant.  Does The Holocaust Chronicle explain this?  Of course not.

I didn’t have to look very far from the above cited page to find another serious mistake on page 585. There is a photo of some Gypsy children on page 585.  The caption on the photo says that these children “had been subjected to savage medical experiments.”

Gypsy children who are suffering from a disease called "Noma."

I blogged about these children, who are suffering from a disease called “Noma,” on this blog post:

I also blogged about a famous photo, taken at Nordhausen. This photo is shown on page 598 of The Holocaust Chronicle, with a caption that says that these bodies are the bodies of inmates, which the Germans “had left to rot” at Nordhausen.

Should public schools in America allow children to study the Jewish version of history, or is this a violation of the First Amendment?

What if a student points out a mistake in The Holocaust Chronicle?  Will he or she be expelled for the crime of “Holocaust denial”?

Update Sept. 26, 2014:

I started looking through my copy of The Holocaust Chronicle again this morning to get an idea of what the students in the Rialto school district will be learning about the Holocaust.

On page 451 of the book, I found the photo below, which I have on my website scrapbookpages.com.

Demonstration of how the corpses were dragged to the ovens at Dachau

This photo is not on a page about Dachau in The Holocaust Chronicle. It is on a page about the Warsaw ghetto. The caption on the photo identifies the men in the photo as Sonderkommandos, and says that the Sonderkommando Jews assisted the Nazis in order to spare their own lives.  There is no hint that this photo was taken after the liberation of Dachau, at the suggestion of the American liberators.

The photo above is part of a set of 3 photos.  The other two photos, which I have on my website are shown below.

This quote is from the page of my website which shows the three photos above:

The three old photos [above] show crematory workers demonstrating how they dragged the dead bodies out of the morgue, loaded them onto a stretcher and then shoved them into the cremation ovens. Posed photographs, such as those shown [above], were offered for sale to American soldiers who visited the museum set up in Baracke X by the US Army after the liberation of Dachau. All three photos are courtesy of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

According to Marcus J. Smith, a U.S. Army doctor, who wrote a book called “The Harrowing of Hell,” the chief of the crematorium crew was Ludvik “a heavy, powerfully muscled Czech who has labored in the crematorium for a long time.” Smith wrote that Ludvik sent him a letter in which he complained that his team of 10 people were not being treated as well as they had been by the SS. Ludvik wrote in this letter: “We feel that after our liberation, at least the same standard of living should be maintained. But our position is worse than then as to food, drinks and tobacco.”

Smith wrote that, because the cremation efforts were too slow, the bodies were buried by German civilians “at the American commander’s request.” The corpses were taken on carts to the burial site on a hill called Leitenberg where the bodies were transferred to a bulldozed excavation, according to Smith. He wrote that “Eventually 2,400 bodies were buried.” That would mean that there was a total of 3,110 bodies in the camp, including those of the prisoners who died between April 29th and May 6th after the liberation. There were allegedly 2,310 bodies on the death train that arrived in the camp on April 27, 1945, which would have to be included in this total. There were 2,226 prisoners who died in the month of May 1945 after the liberation of the camp; they were buried in a cemetery in the town of Dachau.

Why is this photo, taken after the liberation of Dachau, on a page about the Warsaw ghetto in The Holocaust Chronicle?

The only reason, that I can think of, is that this is a horrible photo which illustrates how evil the Nazis were.  Students, who will be required to study this book, will assume that the dummy in the photo is a human being who is being dragged to an oven, probably while still alive.

  1. Thank you, FG. That was an awesome EXPOSE! Kudos!

    • The people in Rialto are about dumber than a bag of hammers. They said they are teaching this,so it “don’t ” happen again. Where have these people been. That’s happened plenty of times since then. The Mntagnards in Nam. The Mayans in Guatemala . Even more recently,Bosnia. Since those folks ain’t Jews ,I don’t guess they count.

  2. How come they never put any jews on trial.dont try the, “they feared fir their life if they didn’t”. The defense attorney for patricia Hearst tried that at her trial. Brainwashing by the SLA didnt fly either. She was taken against her will too. She was given 35 years but in the end only pulled 22 months at the graybar.

  3. Prisoners had enough strength to beat someone with a shovel, I ain’t gonna extend any pity to their Jew asses. They don’t sound all that sick to me. Tell em to get their lazy jew ass to work.

    Comment by Tim — April 26, 2015 @ 4:58 am

    • The prisoner who is preparing to beat a man with a shovel is a Polish resistance fighter who was captured and sent to Dachau because he was an illegal combatant.

      Comment by furtherglory — April 26, 2015 @ 6:49 am

      • Well Geneva Convention says in so many words “if they hide their true identity ( I’ve never seen resistance fighters wear uniforms,yet they’re are still are on one side or the other) by hiding in the ranks of ordinary people,the convention ain’t gonna lift a finger to cover ’em”. The Krauts could’ve done to them,whatever they saw fit and would’ve been well within their rights. So whatever they did to’em,they bought it on themselves.

  4. To all comentators of this article: On Holocaust history there can be only the version based on facts. You ought to study the condition of East and Central Europe after the foolish Versailles Treaty, specially the economic and social problems which made possible the rise of power of Mussolini and Hitler. As the hatred against Jews had been preached by churches for centuries, the racist nazi doctrine could have followers, many of which became fanatical SS men and accomplices of the mass executions and other ways the Jews had been murdered. About the figure of, at least, six million victims, one must keep in mind that to the members of Jewish communities we ought to add those who had only Jewish ancestry and had been considered Jewish only by the racist nazi-fascist rulings. I trust that this will be clear.

    • The problem is that the records and names of Jews who were gassed have never been found. The train records of the Jews being sent to Auschwitz have never been found. Much of the information about the Holocaust comes from the confessions of Rudolf Hoess. He made several confessions, and the numbers vary in his confessions, depending on how much he was tortured before each confession.

      I wrote about this on my website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/AuschwitzScrapbook/History/Articles/DeathStatistics.html

      Comment by furtherglory — September 26, 2014 @ 8:28 am

      • The Nazis, before the war ended, ordered the destruction of such documents. Number of victims can only be estimated.The study of Bettina STANGHNET, now available in English, on the figure of Eichmann, shows that in his interviews to Stassen this nazi officer himself spoke of six million Jews his organization had murdered. But this is another of his many lies as Eichmann had no authority on Poland and the Eastern Territories (Lithuania, Ukraine, etc) where the number of victims – due to the action of Hans Frank and Alfred Rosenberg had been very high. Clearly the theory of Hanna Arendt about the banality of evil is a clear nonsense.

  5. I love Amazon’s reader reviews “…I wager that the whole book is a fabrication along with Glidden himself. The aim of such a book is obvious to me: shill-writing with an ulterior motive, hidden agenda and under-current. And bad shill-writing at that. The good writing is focused on how the Jews are the smartest people in the world and have subjugated just about every country. The author cannot resist bragging, boasting, taunting and grandstanding. Every other page he slams the reader with Hitler this and Hitler that. On and on and on about the Nazi’s. Mitigation hedges and dis-info about the slave trade. Even bum dope about the origins of words such as “taboo” and “manna.” This book is not about educating anyone.”

  6. the Jewish version of history

    Re the ‘Holocaust’, what other (acceptable) version is there?

    Comment by eah — September 25, 2014 @ 1:30 pm

    • The Jewish version of history is required in 19 countries now. The Jewish version is not yet officially required by law in America, but this case in the Rialto school district might set a precedent which will become law.

      Comment by furtherglory — September 25, 2014 @ 3:01 pm

      • Can you list those 19 countries?

        Comment by Anonymous — September 27, 2014 @ 7:14 pm

        • These countries have a law against Holocaust denial:

          Austria, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzeovinia, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Israel, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland and Russia.

          Comment by furtherglory — September 28, 2014 @ 6:19 am

          • Good news there. Some of those countries are already acclimated to having free speech and thought stymied

  7. Schools, especially public schools, are indoctrination institutions. WHAT they are indoctrinated in is merely a reflection of the power structure that governs the institutions. Is anyone surprised? Put off? Able to figure out how to combat it?

    Comment by Jett Rucker — September 25, 2014 @ 1:00 pm

  8. So why was this young girl (on the cover) in the typhus ward at Bergen-Belsen? don’t tell me those wicked Nazis were actually trying to help her recover..? Hasn’t the world been told for decades that all they wanted to do was gas and kill every jew in sight….?
    Wasn’t Ann Frank and her father also treated in the camp hospital…? (The father survived but not Ann.) Why would the Germans do that if all they wanted to do was kill them….??
    Makes no sense whatsoever. When the Russians were closing in, the Germans offered the camp inmates a choice of staying to welcome their glorious Communist liberators or going with them further in to central Germany…..the great majority went with the Germans. Again, why would they do that if they thought they would be killed….??

    There’s no business like Shoah business……..

    • Auschwitz like other Camps had been evacuated by the SS and inmates had been forced to the DEATH MARCHES. At Auschwitz the Red Army found those inmates the SS did manage to evacuate. That it is! Clear? Then who is the author of that heavy bool? Besides, In USA there had been pubblished the very good and accurate book THE WAR AGAINST THE JEWS of Lucy Dawiidowitz of Yeshiva Univeristy who takes account of general history too. And then: How they teach at Rialto School District the Eiropean History?

      Comment by Wolf Murmelstein — September 25, 2014 @ 12:30 pm

      • The Holocaust Chronicle was not written by one person. There is a whole page of names of people who wrote parts of the book.

        The Rialto School District does not teach European History, as far as I know. That would be a vast history.

        The point that I was making in my blog post is that an American school is now required to teach history from a Jewish history book. America has no laws against Holocaust denial, so American students should be allowed to study both sides of the Holocaust.

        Comment by furtherglory — September 25, 2014 @ 1:12 pm

        • The point is that Holocaust history is strictly connected to European history and so Dawidowicz and Hilberg duly consider this connection in their books.There is only one side of Holocaust history: the sad truth of more than six million Jews disappeared in Mass executions, in Ghettos with unbearable life conditions, Gas Chambers, Forced Labor etc., as a result of a racist doctrine which came to power because of historical circumstances. The hatred against the Jews had been preached for centuries by churches. Clear?

          Comment by Wolf Murmelstein — September 26, 2014 @ 12:03 am

          • Of course you and they never ask the question “why us?”

            Comment by Schlageter — September 26, 2014 @ 9:44 am

          • We’ve been lied to about the Jew ashes being used to make soap. Lied to about the Nazis shrinking Jew heads. Lied to about Jew skin used to make lamp shades. Lied to about the electrical killing grid. Lied to about the number that died at Auschwitz.

            What thinking person can believe any thing that comes out of the same pack of lies and liars is beyond me.
