I was alerted, by one of the readers of my blog, to the news that the famous Dachau “Arbeit Macht Frei” sign was stolen overnight, between Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 2, 2014.  You can read about it in the news here.

Who would do such a thing?  “Arbeit Macht Frei” is a slogan that is owned by the Jews, although Dachau was not primarily a camp for Jews.  You can read about the history of Dachau on my website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/DachauScrapbook/overview.html

Rudolf Höss (Hoess) was the man who originated the “Arbeit Macht Frei” slogan. Translated into English, the words mean “Work will set you free.” In his autobiography, Hoess explained that this expression means that work liberates one in the spiritual sense, not that the prisoners literally had a chance of being released if they worked hard.  These words have now been twisted, by the Jews, to mean that the Nazis taunted the Jews, making them think that they would be released if they worked hard.

The following quote is from this news story about the theft:

Dr. Max Mannheimer, a Holocaust survivor and vice president of the International Dachau Committee, said he was “horrified that Nazis apparently so desecrated the memorial to those murdered here and violated the reverence due to such a place.”

I wrote about Dr. Max Mannheimer on this previous blog post:  https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2010/08/12/90-year-old-holocaust-survivor-was-with-muslim-leaders-on-trip-to-dachau-and-auschwitz/

All of the photos below were taken by me, except the old black and white photo.  Click on the photos to see a larger size.

Before tourists were allowed to enter the former camp through the “Arbeit Macht Frei” gate, there was a high wall between the gate and the former SS camp at Dachau and it was impossible to take a photo like the first photo above.  It was during that time that I took the two photos below.

In 2003, before the Arbeit Macht Frei gate was open to visitors, tourists had to enter the camp through an opening in the barbed wire fence around the camp.

You can see more photos and read about Dachau on my website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/DachauScrapbook/KZDachau/DachauLife01G.html

Most of the news stories, about the theft of the gate, say that 40,000 to 50,000 Jews were killed at Dachau.  I wrote about the death statistics at Dachau on this page of my website:  http://www.scrapbookpages.com/DachauScrapbook/deathstatistics.html

Few people visit the town of Dachau, which is shown in my photo below.

  1. Was in Dachau today as part of the course I’m doing which all tour guides must complete and pass in order to give tours at the site. I’m not a guide but teach down the road and wanted to take advantage of the only time such a course is offered in English.
    Anyway, I was told that security at the site is being significantly beefed up, that realia is being replicated to put the real material in a secure location, and that the word is that it is still not known at all who took the sign, but that it will turn up by the end of next year. They couldn’t say where they got that information from but that it’s just what’s being intimated.

    • Are the tour guides being trained, at Dachau, to tell tourists that there was a homicidal gas chamber at Dachau?

  3. The death stats at Dachau are well illustrated in this graph, which is part of Exhibit 8.3 in the Permanent Exhibition:

  4. [quote]A blog by Israel’s Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial condemned the theft.

    “While we do not know who is behind the theft of the sign, the theft of such a symbolic object is an offensive attack on the memory of the Holocaust,” it said. [end quote]

    So, according to the Yad Vashem, even detention-labor camps for non-Jews devoid of any execution facility are symbols of the “Holocaust”. Ridiculous…

    [quote]Thousands of Jews, foreigners and other groups persecuted by the Nazis were later held at Dachau – initially built to house political prisoners. Many inmates were shot or gassed [end quote]

    So the BBC still believes in the Dachau homicidal gas chamber. Very telling about the evidential standards of the Holocaust industry and the Zionist-owned media.

    United States Holocaust Memorial Museum’s website: “In 1942, the crematorium area was constructed next to the main camp. It included the old crematorium and the new crematorium (Barrack X) with a gas chamber. There is no credible evidence that the gas chamber in Barrack X was used to murder human beings.” (http://www.ushmm.org/wlc/en/article.php?ModuleId=10005214)

    ‘Evidence’ apparently credible enough for the BBC by the way.😉

    • The BBC is a state propaganda outlet which since 1939 has broadcast the lies of the ruling western elite.

    • Between 1960-1964 there was a big sign above the southwest “gas chamber” door which advised visitors in German and French that the gas chamber never operated properly; between 1965-2003 it claimed the gas chamber was never used as a gas chamber.

      People who’ve not visited Dachau don’t appreciate just how dishonest the museum is about there to be or not to be gas chamber.

      Sign 3406 in the room adjacent to the “gas chamber” reads:

      “Gas chamber

      This was the center for potential mass murder.
      The room was disguised as “showers” and
      equipped with fake shower spouts to mislead
      the victims and prevent them from refusing
      to enter the room. During a period of 15 to
      20 minutes up to 150 people at a time could
      be suffocated to death through prussic acid
      poison gas (Zyklon B).”

      Compare that with the text which the House of Bavarian History originally designed for the “gas chamber”

      “Gas chamber

      The center for potential mass murder was
      located in the next room. The gas chamber
      was disguised as “showers” and equipped with
      fake shower spouts to mislead the victims and
      prevent them from refusing to enter. During
      a period of 15 to 20 minutes up to 150 people
      at a time could be suffocated to death through
      prussic acid poison gas (Zyklon B).
      But the gas chamber was not used for mass
      murder. Survivors have testified that the SS
      did, however, murder individual prisoners and
      small groups here using poison gas.”

      The swindlers at the Dachau museum evidently wanted a more ambiguous sign; they don’t want to make it clear to visitors that there’s serious doubts, even among Holocaust historians—who usually accept anything—that this “gas chamber” was ever used,

      Immediately next to the sign quoted above is sign 3405, which reads:

      “Disrobing room

      This is were the victims were to leave their clothes before
      entering the gas chamber disguised as “showers“.
      Their clothing was to be brought to the disinfecting
      chambers before the next group could enter the room.”

      Visitors to Dachau who read these signs are deliberately given the impression that the “gas chamber” was used, regularly.

      It will only be the rare visitor who also reads sign 8.3 (which is roughly 520 metres away) in the Permanent Exhibition in the former Maintenance Building:

      >>>> “The gas chamber was not used for its originally intended function as a death factory. There are, however, indications that a small number of prisoners were murdered there by poison gas.”

      and

      >>>> “From reports it is known that the gas chamber was used only on an experimental basis.”

  5. Dachau was never primarily a camp where Jews were sent. It certainly was never a ‘death camp’, although many people died there of course.
