The title of my blog post today comes from a line in a newspaper article, written by Michael Curtis, which you can read in full here:
The newspaper article begins with this quote:
Everyone – except the idiots of the world – knows the truth about Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest of the Nazi death camps, and the one where an estimated 1.3 million people were murdered. It is preserved as it was in January 1945 when the camp was liberated. The gas chambers at Birkenau were destroyed by the Nazis to remove evidence of their atrocities. But the reminders of the horrors are the plentiful human hair, shoes, suitcases, and eyeglasses of the victims. Above all, there are the empty canisters of Zyklon B poison, and evidence of documentation of the Nazi planning of the genocide, mostly – at least 90 percent- against Jews.
Take that, all you deniers out there! Why would there be thousands of empty Zyklon-B cans at Auschwitz-Birkenau, if there were no gas chambers? The most amazing thing is that the Nazis didn’t even bother to haul away this incriminating evidence of the gassing of the Jews.
Zyklon-B was used to kill the lice in the clothing of prisoners in all the concentration camps. Lice spread typhus, a deadly disease, which was prevalent in all the camps.
I wrote a previous blog post about Zyklon-B being used at Auschwitz-Birkenau to disinfect the clothing: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/tag/zyklon-b/
My photo above shows the stains on the outside of a disinfection building at Auschwitz-Birkenau. These stains were caused by the use of Zyklon-B to disinfect the clothing of the prisoners and the bedding in the bunk buildings. There were several buildings, like this, at Birkenau where the clothing of the prisoners was disinfected with Zyklon-B. The last time that I was at Auschwitz-Birkenau in 2005, these buildings were off limits; tourists were not allowed to see how Zyklon-B was used to save the lives of prisoners.
The news article ends with this quote:
The idiots [Holocust deniers] have had some success. According to an ADL 2014 Survey, 35 percent of those surveyed in 100 countries said they had never heard of the Holocaust and 32 percent believe it is a myth or has been greatly exaggerated. Even if one agrees that censorship is undesirable, the difficult question arises again. Should the Holocaust deniers, not intellectually respectable and historically fraudulent, be banned or punished? France has censored the comedian Dieudonne for his spreading of racism, anti-Semitism, and Holocaust denial, and has emphasized the urgency to deal with manifestations of anti-Semitism. The secret meeting in London, expounding the Protocol of the Elders of Anti-Semitism, shows that all societies should engage in that urgent task.
P.S. I have updated this previous blog post about Chelmno: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2011/04/08/in-the-final-solution-where-and-how-did-the-chelmno-death-camp-fit-in/
