Why do people deny the Holocaust, the most documented event in the history of the world?

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust, World War II — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 10:13 am

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC has a website, which has a page on Holocaust Denial, with this headline: COMBATING HOLOCAUST DENIAL: ORIGINS OF HOLOCAUST DENIAL

This quote is from the USHMM website page about Holocaust Denial:

The Holocaust was a state secret in Nazi Germany. The Germans wrote down as little as possible. Most of the killing orders were verbal, particularly at the highest levels. Hitler’s order to kill Jews was issued only on a need-to-know basis. The Nazi leaders generally avoided detailed planning of killing operations, preferring to proceed in a systematic but often improvised manner. The Germans destroyed most documentation that did exist before the end of the war. The documents that survived and related directly to the killing program were virtually all classified and stamped “Geheime Reichssache” (Top Secret), requiring special handling and destruction to prevent capture by the enemy. Heinrich Himmler, Reich Leader of the SS and Chief of the German Police, said in a secret speech to SS generals in Posen in 1943 that the mass murder of the European Jews was a secret, never to be recorded. 

Oops, Himmler has been cut off in mid-Sentence again.  I previously blogged here about the Posen speech which is routinely cut off in mid-sentence by the Holohoaxers.

The USHMM article on Holocaust Denial continues with this statement:

In order to hide the killing operation as much as possible from the uninitiated, Hitler ordered that the killings not be spoken of directly in German documentation or in public statements. Instead, the Germans used codenames and neutral-sounding terms for the killing process. In Nazi parlance, for example, “action” (Aktion) referred to a violent operation against Jewish (or other) civilians by German security forces; “resettlement to the East” (Umsiedlung nach dem Osten) referred to the forced deportation of Jewish civilians to killing centers in German-occupied Poland; and “special treatment” (Sonderbehandlung) meant killing.

So it turns out that the Nazis had planned the current “Holocaust Denial” from the very beginning.

There is a Holocaust Museum at the house in Wannsee, 50 miles from Berlin, where the Nazis planned the Holocaust. The dining room of the house, where the conference was held is shown in the photo below.   The minutes of the meeting were not found until many years later.

An excerpt from Heinrich Himmler’s famous speech at Posen on October 4, 1943 is quoted in the museum display:

…”The Jewish people are being exterminated.” every party member says. “Of course, it’s in our program, elimination of the Jews, extermination, we’ll do it all right.” Among all those who talk like this, no one has witnessed it, no one has seen it through. Most of you will know, however, what it means to see 100 corpses lying together, or 500, or 1,000. To have stuck it out and at the same time to have remained decent – aside from a few exceptions succumbing to human weakness – that has made us tough. This is a page of glory in our history, unwritten and never to be written…

As quoted by the museum, Himmler’s speech is cut off in mid sentence. According to Holocaust historian Martin Gilbert, the full sentence from Himmler’s speech is as follows:

This is an unwritten and never-to-be-written page of glory in our history, for we know how difficult it would be for us if today under bombing raids and the hardships and deprivations of war – if we were still to have the Jews in every city as secret saboteurs, agitators, and inciters. If the Jews were still lodged in the body of the German nation, we would probably by now have reached the stage of 1917-18.”

The last part of the sentence is a reference to 1917-18 during World War I when the Jewish labor leaders called a strike of ammunition workers in 1917 and the Jewish Social Democrats overthrew the established government and declared a Republic in Germany in 1918. The Nazis believed that the Jews were responsible for their defeat in World War I because Jewish Social Democrats had signed the Armistice and the Treaty of Versailles. The part of the sentence, that the museum display cut out, explains why the Nazis made the decision to “transport the Jews to the east” six months after they attacked the Soviet Union.

  2. Assuming the incriminating part of the Posen speech is not just a forgery with a voice imitator saying words for Himmler*, the Posen speech thing is quite laughable. In 1993, Robert Wolfe, supervisory archivist for captured German records at the U.S. National Archives admitted that a more precise translation of “Ausrottung” would be “extirpation” or “tearing up by the roots”. And no need to use an allegedly secret speech by Himmler anyway. Hitler said in public speeches that he would “ausrotten” European Jewry on several occasions. Either “ausrottung” only meant “mass murder” as Holohoaxers claim and the Posen speech is useless because Hitler publically used it in connection with European Jewry several times. Either “ausrottung” had several meanings, including non-murderous ones, and the Posen speech is useless because Himmler’s words about the extirpation of European Jews can’t prove any genocidal policy on the Nazis’ part.

    * There is a controversy about some of Churchill’s wartime speeches claiming that they were told by the English voice imitator Norman Shelley. Whether true or not doesn’t really matter. Such things can be done…

    • You can read a lengthy explanation of the word “ausrottung” on David Irving’s website at http://www.fpp.co.uk/Auschwitz/docs/Ausrottung/argument.html

      This subject came up during the trial when Irving sued Lipstadt.

      • It’s sometimes claimed that “ausrottung” only means “mass murder” when referring to people. Maybe it’s true for the Germans of today. I don’t know. But it doesn’t mean it was so for the Germans of the 1930s and 1940s. Raul Hilberg was compelled to concede that the meaning of some words can sometimes change a lot through decades. When Zündel’s lawyer Douglas Christie asked Hilberg “Do the meaning of the words change that much?” in 1985, Hilberg had to answer “Well, actually, they do” (see below). Another great example of that is the article “Should we exterminate the Jews?” in the French newspaper “L’Appel” (https://shoabloger.wordpress.com/2013/02/01/extermination-of-the-jews-attention-to-the-meaning-of-the-word/). That article dealt with the elimination of the Jews of French life by induced emigration, “numerus clausus” in some professions and a massive transfer after German victory. As a French-speaking guy, I can tell you that the words “exterminate the Jews” (“exterminer les juifs”) only means “kill them all” to any French-speaking person of today, but it was obviously not the case for French-speaking people of the early 1940s.

        [quote]
        Christie referred Hilberg to page 570 of his book, The Destruction of the European Jews, where it read as follows:

        From the Dessau Works, which produced the gas, shipments were sent directly to Auschwitz Extermination and Fumigation Division (Abteilung Entwesung und Entseuchung).

        What is the translation for entwesung?, asked Christie.

        “To deprive something of life,” said Hilberg, “that is, extermination. There is no very accurate translation which doesn’t carry connotations, but I think you will find that that’s an acceptable translation of the German term.”

        I put it to you, said Christie, that it means ‘delousing’ and it refers specifically to vermin.

        “No… No. The term wesen is a live thing, anything alive. The prefix ent is to negate life, to deprive it of life. The suffix ung in entwesung, and having been deprived of life, or depriving something of life.”

        Christie produced and showed to Hilberg an English-German dictionary (with which Hilberg said he was not familiar). Christie put to Hilberg that the dictionary referred to wesen to mean disinfect, to sterilize, to exterminate vermin, to delouse, extermination of vermin, delousing, disinfection. Right?, asked Christie.

        “Yes,” said Hilberg. “… What is the date of this dictionary, sir?”

        I don’t know, said Christie. Do the meaning of the words change that much?

        “Well, actually, they do, but without going into that, I would simply say that in ordinary circumstances, including Germany today, extermination is confined to vermin. When we say ‘extermination’ in Canada or in the United States, we generally mean that it is not human beings who are exterminated by commonly styled extermination terms,” said Hilberg. (5-1132)

        So you agree that entwesung is a term meaning to use just disinsecticidization?, asked Christie.

        “It refers to any killing,” said Hilberg, “any deprivation of the quality of life of something that is alive… [And wesen] is anything that walks, anything that has life.”
