Today, I received an e-mail alerting me to a new letter that Bradley Smith has sent to Professor Steven Pinker at Harvard University. This is nothing new. Bradley Smith has been making trouble for years, by constantly sending letters to universities, asking for the name of one person (with proof) who was gassed by the Nazis.
Can a homicidal gas chamber have a floor drain, like the one shown in the ruins of the Sachsenhausen gas chamber, in the photo above? Just asking!
Although there are numerous Holocaust survivors, out on the lecture circuit, who are claiming that their relatives were “gassed,” there is no proof whatsoever that gas chambers were used to kill people during the “Holocaust.”
I have written several blog posts about the alleged gas chambers at the Majdanek “death camp,” which you can read here: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/tag/majdanek-gas-chamber/
This quote is from the letter to a Harvard professor, written by Bradley Smith:
Back in 2009 The Harvard Crimson ran a one-column, two-inch ad where I asked why Dwight D. Eisenhower, in his book Crusade In Europe, did not mention the words “gas chambers.” Publication of the ad caused a scandal and The Crimson withdrew it after one run. You can review that story here. From what I can find, you did not comment on this Free Speech scandal. Reading your principled article in The Boston Globe, it occurs to me to wonder why.
Why do you think General Eisenhower wrote his account of World War 11 and choose to not mention “gas chambers”? No one was in a better position to know what weapons of mass destruction the Germans employed during that war and which they did not. Eisenhower chose (he chose!) to not support a narrative about gas chambers that he had every reason to understand was corrupt. At the same time, having in mind to further his career, he would evade risking that career by discounting them.
Why does Bradley Smith keep taunting people like this? He knows why Eisenhower did not mention the “gas chambers,” and so does everyone else of Eisenhower’s generation. [Eisenhower was born in 1890.]
Back in 1948, when Eisenhower wrote his best selling book, everyone knew what a homicidal gas chamber was. Everyone knew that a crematorium, that was not air tight and did not have a tall stack to vent the gas, could not have been used to gas 2,000 people at one time, as the Holocaustians now claim.
Back in 1948, America had gas chambers to execute criminals, including the gas chamber in Jefferson City, MO where two people could be gassed at the same time.
I wrote about the gas chamber in Jefferson City, Missouri on this blog post: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2012/06/03/what-does-a-real-gas-chamber-look-like/
