A reader of my blog made a comment in which a link to the filmed court testimony given by Lt. Jack Taylor was included. I believe that Lt. Jack Taylor was the worst liar of all the Holohoax liars; his lies deserve a blog post of their own, so bear with me, please.
First, a bit of background about the Mauthausen camp:
The Mauthausen concentration camp was a Class III camp in Austria for “Return Unwanted” prisoners. The camp was liberated by American troops on May 5, 1945; it was the last of the Nazi camps to be liberated by American soldiers, just three days before World War II ended on May 8, 1945. The American soldiers were greeted at the gate by 37-year-old Lt. Jack H. Taylor, a Commando in the United States Navy, who had been captured after leading a sabotage mission behind enemy lines. In other words, he was an illegal combatant, and that’s why he was arrested and sent to a prison camp.
When the Americans arrived, Lt. Taylor had been a prisoner at Mauthausen for only 35 days; he had arrived in the camp on April 1, 1945, after being transferred from a Gestapo prison in Vienna because Soviet troops were 50 kilometers from the city and advancing rapidly. The Nazis didn’t want him to get killed in the fight to take the city of Vienna.
Lt. Cmdr. Jack Taylor gave the following testimony at the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg:
“In October ’44, I was the first Allied officer to drop onto Austria. I was captured December 1st, by the Gestapo, severely beaten, ah, even though I was in uniform, severely beaten, and, and, considered as a non-prisoner of war. I was taken to Vienna prison where I was held for four months.
When the Russians neared Vienna, I was taken to this Mauthausen concentration lager [camp], an extermination camp, the worst in Germany, where we have been starving and, and beaten and killed, ah, fortunately, my turn hadn’t come. Ah, two American officers at least have been executed here. Here is the insignia of one, a U.S. naval officer, and here is his dog tag. Here is the army officer, executed by gas in this lager [camp]. Ah…there were…
[Question: “How many ways did they execute them?”]
Five or six ways: by gas, by shooting, by beating, that is beating with clubs, ah, by exposure, that is standing out in the snow, naked, for 48 hours and having cold water put on them, thrown on them in the middle of winter, starvation, dogs, and pushing over a hundred-foot cliff.”
Lt. Cmdr. Taylor was the first witness for the prosecution in the Mauthausen trial, which was brought before an American Military Tribunal at Dachau. By now, Taylor was an experienced prosecution witness and he elaborated on his Nuremberg testimony.
When asked by prosecutor Lt. Col. William Denson, on direct examination, how many different forms of killing that he had come in contact with in Mauthausen, Taylor testified as follows:
“Gassing, hanging, shooting, beating. There was one particular group of Dutch Jews who were beaten until they jumped over the cliff into the stone quarry. Some that were not killed on the first fall were taken back up and thrown over to be sure. Then there was exposure. Any new transport coming in was forced to stand out in the open, regardless of the time of the year, practically naked. Other forms of killing included clubbing to death with axes or hammers and so forth, tearing to pieces by dogs specially trained for the purpose, injections into the heart and veins with magnesium chloride or benzene, whippings with a cow-tail to tear the flesh away, mashing in a concrete mixer, forcing them to drink a great quantity of water and jumping on the stomach while the prisoner was lying on his back, freezing half-naked in subzero temperatures, buried alive, red-hot poker down the throat. I remember a very prominent Czech general who was held down in the shower room and had a hose forced down his throat. He drowned that way.”
Of course, Jack Taylor had never seen anyone carried back up to the top of a cliff and thrown off a second time, nor had he ever seen anyone mashed in a concrete mixer, nor buried alive, nor killed with a red-hot poker shoved down their throat. These were
stories lies that he had heard from the other prisoners.
This kind of hearsay testimony was common in all the Dachau proceedings. The purpose of reiterating these stories in sworn testimony on the witness stand was to get these atrocities entered into the record, so that these alleged crimes would go down in history for future generations to read as the gospel truth.
Lt. Cmdr. Taylor may have been confused about the nationality of the general. There were similar stories about a Russian general, Lt. Gen. Dmitry Mikhailovich Karbyshev, who was either drowned in the shower or forced to stand outside in freezing weather while water was poured over him on some unknown date in February 1945. A statue of Karbyshev encased in a block of ice stands near the gate into the Mauthausen camp. (see the photo at the top of this page)
Lt. Condr. Taylor testified during the trial that he had been scheduled to die in the Mauthausen gas chamber on May 6, 1945, but he was miraculously saved when American troops arrived the day before his planned execution.
In his debriefing statement, Lt. Condr. Jack Taylor told Dr. Stransky Milos, the Czech prisoner who wrote the statement, the following:
“After the Americans had liberated us, I discovered that I should have been executed on 28 April 1945, along with 27 other prisoners from Block 13. A friendly Czech, Mylos [Milos], who worked in the political department had, unknown to me, removed my paper and destroyed it so that I was not included with the 27.”
According to an addendum to the debriefing statement, written by Dr. Stransky Milos, an order was given to execute 27 prisoners who had been sent to Mauthausen on January 4, 1945 [1.4.45]. Lt. Jack Taylor, who had arrived on April 1, 1945, was included in this order.
Dr. Milos wrote the following in his addendum to the debriefing statement:
“Execution ordered by Kommandeur der Sicherheitspolizei und des Sicherheitsdiestes in Wien based on martial law for 27 police-prisoners, many of the transport from 1.4.1945 [January 4, 1945] took place on 28.4.1945 at Mauthausen afternoon. The execution of the Captain Taylor has not been carried out, because 3 days before I burnt his documents.”
Keep in mind that the Germans were building Messerschmitt ME262 jet airplanes at Mauthausen and V-2 rockets at a sub-camp of Buchenwald, but they were allegedly too stupid to notice that the only copy of an execution order had been burned by an inmate.
When Jack Taylor arrived at Mauthausen, there was a typhus epidemic in progress and 300 prisoners were dying each day, but according to Taylor’s court testimony, 367 prisoners had been marched from Czechoslovakia to Mauthausen during the epidemic, and instead of being taken to the Quarantine camp which was directly across the street from the crematorium, they were immediately taken into the crematorium to be killed and then burned in the a new oven that Taylor had been working on to build.
The photo above shows the smoke stack for the underground crematorium at Mauthausen. The street in the foreground is the main camp road. On the left in the photo is the gate into the Quarantine camp where incoming prisoners were held for two weeks in order to prevent the spread of disease. The stairs down to the crematorium are next to the green building, and directly across from the Quarantine camp.
The location of the Quarantine camp now has memorials to the prisoners that were killed in the alleged gas chamber. There is no mention that the prisoners were put into quarantine in an attempt to save lives.
To sum up, of all the Holohoax liers that you will ever meet, and all those that you won’t meet, Lt. Jack Taylor was the worst.
