Bill O’Reilly says that abortions are “Nazi stuff”

Filed under: Germany, TV shows — Tags: , , , , , — furtherglory @ 11:49 am

Last night, when I heard Bill O’Reilly say “Nazi stuff,” like in the “Third Reich,” I at first thought that he referring to the murder of deformed children at Hartheim Castle. I had to watch the show, for the second time, before I realized that he was comparing today’s abortions in America to what happened in the “Third Reich,” which was Hitler’s Germany.

This quote is from a news article about Bill O’Reilly’s show:

After sounding off on the Planned Parenthood scandal in his Talking Points Memo, Bill O’Reilly spoke to Republican presidential contender Chris Christie.

O’Reilly pointed out that some of the body parts that Planned Parenthood is harvesting come from 18-week-old fetuses.

He noted that to get those body parts, they have to kill the fetus in a certain way.

“Now many people feel this is Nazi stuff. This is what they did in the Third Reich with these experiments,” O’Reilly said.

The Nazis in the Third Reich did not perform abortions. No, it was the exact opposite.  The Nazis encouraged women to have as many children as possible.

Gold Star that was given to German mother who had lots of children

Gold Star that was given to German mother who had lots of children

A German woman, who had at least 3 children, during the Third Reich, was given a medal.

This quote is from Wikipedia, about the medals that were given to German women for having lots of children:

The Cross of Honour of the German Mother (German: Ehrenkreuz der Deutschen Mutter), referred to colloquially as the Mutterehrenkreuz (Mother’s Cross of Honour) or simply Mutterkreuz (Mother’s Cross), was a state decoration and civil order of merit conferred by the government of the German Reich[1][2] to honour a Reichsdeutsche German mother for exceptional merit to the German nation.[2][3][4] Eligibility later extended to include Volksdeutsche (ethnic German) mothers from, for example, Austria and Sudetenland, that had earlier been incorporated into the German Reich.[4]

The decoration was conferred from 1939 until 1945[5] in three classes of order, bronze, silver, and gold,[2][6] to Reichsdeutsche mothers who exhibited probity, exemplary motherhood, and who conceived and raised at least four or more children in the role of a parent.[7][8] A similar practice, that continues to this present day, was already established in France since 1920, by conferring the Médaille de la Famille française (Medal of the French Family), a tribute to the French mother who raised several children in an appropriate way.

Not only did the Nazi not encourage abortions, they set up Lebensborn homes where single girls could go to have a baby, fathered by a German soldier.  You can read about this at

This quote, from Wikipedia, is about Lebsenborn:

Lebensborn e.V. (literally: “Fount of Life”) was an SS-initiated, state-supported, registered association in Nazi Germany with the goal of raising the birth rate of “Aryan” children via extramarital relations of persons classified as “racially pure and healthy” based on Nazi racial hygiene and health ideology. Lebensborn encouraged anonymous births by unmarried women, and mediated adoption of these children by likewise “racially pure and healthy” parents, particularly SS members and their families.

A news article, which you can read in full here, tells the story of Dennis Avey sneaking in the Monowitz camp, which was the Auschwitz III camp. At the time that he allegedly sneaked into the Nazi camp, Avey was a prisoner in a nearby POW camp, which you can read about on my website at

Another news story, which you can read in full here, casts some doubt on Avey’s story.

I have written several blog posts about his claim that he broke into the Monowitz camp, which you can read at

you know nothing, John Snow

Filed under: Dachau, Germany, movies — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 10:43 am

No, I am not writing about John Snow, nor about Game of Thrones; I just wanted to get your attention.

The man who knows nothing is Fred Leuchter, who has now gone into hiding, similar to John Snow, who is allegedly dead.

The claim of the Holocaust True Believers is that Fred Leuchter knows nothing because he has a degree in History, not a degree in Chemistry.

I am presenting a report, written by Fred Leuchter, about the alleged Dachau gas chamber.  My readers can decide for themselves whether Fred Leuchter knows anything about gas chambers.

My photo of the Dachau shower room, which was allegedly a gas chamber

My photo of the Dachau shower room, which was allegedly a gas chamber (Click on photo to enlarge)

Report written by Fred Leuchter:

The alleged execution facility at Dachau is located in a building called “Baracke X”. This installation was erected in 1942 and contained a crematory consisting of four (4) retorts.
It was constructed primarily as a replacement for the older and smaller two (2) retort crematory located nearby. The facility also housed a morgue, fumigation cubicles (delousing chambers), related work areas and a room identified by a sign over the door as a “Brausebad” (shower room). It is this shower room which has been alleged to be the gas chamber and which tourists today are informed was the “gas chamber”.
The alleged gas chamber has an area of some 427 square feet and a volume of some 3,246.7 cubic feet. It originally was a shower room but appears to have been modified sometime after Dachau’s capture by the Americans. The present ceiling is some 7.6 feet in height and contains some seventeen (17) pseudo-shower heads, fabricated out of what appears to be soldered sheet zinc. Additionally, it contains some eight (8) recessed lighting fixtures which are not explosion proof. It also contains two (2) alleged gas inlet ports (dumps) with internal grates measuring 15.75 inches x 27.25 inches which are welded open to the outside. This alleged gas chamber also contains a ventilation port clearly added after construction. The walls are of tile and the ceiling of concrete painted white. There are two (2) 20.5 inch x 26 inch floor drains connected to the other floor drains throughout the building and the camp. It has two (2) doors with provision for gasketing, as do many European doors.
It appears from construction that the alleged gas chamber was originally a shower room, as found in all the other investigated camps. The pseudo-shower heads are fabricated from sheet metal of a cylinder and a cone with a sprinkler type head as found on a garden type watering can. The end is sealed and not threaded. They are not connected, nor are they capable of being connected to any piping system. They are designed to appear as functional shower heads when observed from below. The ceiling with the phoney shower heads seems to have been added at a time later than original construction, apparently after capture of the camp. The ceiling is fabricated of poured concrete, cast around the pseudo shower heads. It is typical suspended-slab concrete construction. Document No. 47 of the 79th Congress, 1st Session, of the United States, includes an investigation of Dachau.
In this document, the gas chamber is described as having a 10 foot ceiling containing brass fixtures for introducing gas into the chamber. The present ceiling, as noted, is only 7.6 feet high and has none of the gas inlet fixtures described in Document No. 47.
Directly over the shower room are the steam and heating pipes, which is consistent with good and standard design for supplying hot water to the shower area. These pipes cannot be seen in the shower room today. Their existence, however, can be confirmed by observing the pipes entering into the shower room area from an off-limits corridor behind the shower room and visible only from a rear window of the building. It is an inept and extremely dangerous design to put hot, high pressure steam pipes over a chamber containing potentially explosive gas. At one end of the chamber the ventilation port was clearly added. The ports alleged to have been “Zyklon B” introduction ports, not different from apartment incinerator garbage shutes, were obviously added after the original tiling. Both these modifications are clearly discernible from the uneven replacement of the interior tiles and the exterior brick. At one end of the room there are two (2) recessed electrical boxes with grates, something which should not be in a room containing potentially explosive gas. There is no means for sealing the room to prevent gas leakage and there is no system for exhausting the gas after use or any suitable vent stack (40 foot minimum is standard). The doors are not gas proof, or even water proof. They are only water resistant. There is no system for evaporating (heating) or distributing a gas into or within the chamber. The use of the improperly designed “Zyklon B” introduction port would prevent proper evaporation of the gas from the “Zyklon B” pellets because of insufficient surface area exposure. Most, if not all, of the “Zyklon B” pellets would remain in the dumping mechanism due to insufficient angular motion of the gas pellet dump.
On a sign posted within the alleged gas chamber, Dachau Museum officials state: “GAS CHAMBER – disguised as a ‘shower room’ – never used as a gas chamber”. An examination of the alleged gas chamber clearly shows, however, that this facility was constructed as a shower room, used only for this purpose. The modifications to the room which include the addition of the ceiling, pseudo shower heads, air intake and gas inlet ports were made at a time much later than the original construction of “Baracke X” and the shower room, and for reasons and by persons unknown to this author. No samples were taken at this location due to excessively heavy tourist traffic inside the alleged gas chamber.
For the record, this alleged gas chamber would have held only forty-seven (47) persons utilizing the nine (9) square foot inclusion rule as accepted by standard engineering practice for air handling systems. Without an exhaust system or windows, it would require at least one week to vent by convection. This estimate is based on American gas chambers requiring twenty (20) minutes to vent with two complete air changes per minute, and a minimum of forty-eight (48) hours to vent a fumigated building with an abundance of windows.
An inspection of the four (4) new crematory retorts at “Baracke X” revealed that, although fired, none of these ever experienced much use, if any. These retorts were coal fired.
After an in depth investigation of the alleged gas chamber at “Baracke X,” Dachau, this investigator, in his best engineering opinion, categorically states that this installation could not have ever been utilized as an execution gas chamber. It was in fact a shower room (Brausebad) as originally labeled by the Germans.

The Jews are back in Berlin and they have their own Olympics

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 8:43 am

A news article about the new Jewish Olympics, which you can read in full here, starts off with this quote:

After dropping to 7,000 in 1945, there are 45,000 Jews in Berlin today – many arriving from Eastern Europe, Israel, Australia, France and the United States – attracted by the capital’s tolerance, low cost of living and creative arts scene.

The Jews now have their own Olympics in the Olympic Stadium in Berlin — no Nazis or Lutherans allowed.

The Jewish Olympics in Berlin, no Germans or Christians allowed (click to enlarge)

The Jewish Olympics in Berlin, no Germans or Christians allowed (click to enlarge)

This quote from the news article explains it:

Seven decades after Adolf Hitler sought to stop Jews from competing in the 1936 Olympics in Berlin, more than 2,500 Jewish competitors will take part in the 14th European Maccabi Games from Wednesday (Thursday NZ time) at the same Olympic Stadium.

Germany, home to the world’s fast-growing Jewish population, is full of pride that the country responsible for the Holocaust in which six million Jews were killed will host the 10-day “Jewish Olympics”, with participants from 36 nations in 19 disciplines from athletics to basketball, soccer and squash.

“I think it’s great that the Jewish community in Germany is growing and Jewish life has become so vibrant here again,” Heiko Maas, Germany’s justice minister, said ahead of the opening ceremony for the Games that will be held in the Olympic Stadium and sports complex and run to August 5.

Why do the Jews need their own Olympic games? This is to insure that only Jews can win. It all goes back to the 1936 games when Hitler limited the number of Jews that could compete. Now the tables have turned, and Germans are not allowed to compete in Olympic games in their own country, unless they are Jewish.

Lets go back to 1936. What was the status of  the country of Germany and the Jews in 1936?

In 1936, Hitler was more loved and admired than all the other world leaders put together. He was also the only world leader who was actively helping the Zionists [Jews] with their plan to reclaim Palestine as their country.

While America and the rest of Europe was still in the depths of the depression caused by the stock market crash in October 1929, Germany had stabilized its economy and had virtually eliminated unemployment.

Unlike the other countries in Europe in 1936, Nazi Germany was doing well, thanks in part to American investment capital. Many American businessmen, led by auto maker Henry Ford, supported Hitler and his Fascist form of government. Other prominent Americans who supported Hitler included Joseph P. Kennedy (the father of President John F. Kennedy), and Prescott Bush (the grandfather of President George W. Bush) and Charles Lindbergh.

Meanwhile, the American government was drifting to the liberal left; Communist refugees like playwright Bertold Brecht and Jewish refugees like Albert Einstein were flocking to America and their influence was strong in American politics.

In the 1936 presidential election in America, Al Smith, who had run as the Democratic candidate in 1928 against Herbert Hoover, accused fellow Democrat President Roosevelt of being a Communist.

Hitler had thumbed his nose at the Versailles Treaty by stopping the payment of reparations to France and Great Britain, and a massive program of industrialization had restored Germany to full employment, compared to the 20% unemployment in America in 1936. Roosevelt had copied many of the social welfare programs in Germany, including Social Security, but America was still struggling to recover from the depression.

The workers in Nazi Germany enjoyed unprecedented social benefits such as paid vacations under the Strength Through Joy program (Kraft durch Freude). Factory workers listened to classical music as they worked, and took showers before going home. In order to demonstrate their importance to the country, workers were allowed to march in Nazi parades, carrying shovels on their shoulders just like the soldiers who marched with their rifles.

Everything in Nazi Germany was clean and orderly; there were no slums; the trains ran on time. By 1938, the crime rate was at an all-time low because repeat offenders were being sent to a concentration camp after they had completed their second sentence. Anyone who did not have a permanent address and some visible means of support was hauled off the Dachau and put to work.

The political parties of the opposition (Communists and Social Democrats) had been banned in Germany; political dissidents were being locked up; there was no more bomb throwing or revolutionary fighting in the streets. There were no more crippling general strikes because the trade unions had been banned to prevent the Communists from organizing the workers.

A healthy lifestyle was encouraged by the Nazis and group calisthenics for young people were compulsory. Family values were the order of the day: abortion was banned; homosexuals and prostitutes were imprisoned; women were encouraged to be homemakers, and mothers with four or more children would shortly be awarded military style medals for serving their country.

It was safe to walk the city streets in Germany at night; no bars were needed on the windows of German homes to keep the criminal element out; all the social misfits were being sent away to the concentration camps; bums and vagrants were no longer allowed to beg on the streets.

Money that had formerly been spent to care for institutionalized persons with mental and physical disabilities was now being used for other purposes as the mentally ill and the severely disabled were being put to death at Hartheim Castle and other places.

The single-minded Nazis were attempting to achieve a perfect world like Disneyland’s Main Street which ends at a replica of Germany’s Neuschwanstein Castle; their advanced technology was the Tomorrowland of its day.

Fifty years later, the backlash from the German ideology of racialism and nationalism was the impetus for the creation of today’s Politically Correct world of diversity and tolerance, which is the exact opposite of Nazi Germany.

The Nuremberg laws, which Germany enacted in 1935, stripped the Jews of their citizenship and made it a crime for Jews to have sexual intercourse with Germans. Jews were excluded from many jobs and government positions, and they were not allowed to ride on street cars or sit on park benches reserved for Aryans.

The rest of the world, particularly Americans, ignored these early warning signs.

In 1936, America was a segregated country with institutionalized racism.  There were many restricted neighborhoods in America where Jews were not allowed to buy a home. American universities had quotas for Jewish students and numerous clubs and organizations did not allow Jews as members.

While the Nazi racists were encouraging 300,000 Jews to leave Germany in the 1930ies, the American government was handing a one-way ticket to Mexico to 500,000 Mexican immigrants and Mexican-American citizens during the same time period.

Ever since the leftist revolutions, led by the Jews in Russia and Germany, had brought an end to World War I, the world had been polarized by Communism and Fascism.

The first hint that a second world war was soon going to be fought over the conflicting ideologies of Communism and Fascism came in July 1936 with the Spanish Civil War, which started when General Francisco Franco led a military revolt against the leftist Republic.

Hitler and Mussolini gave their support to Franco, while Roosevelt and the leftist French leader supported the Communist side. The battle lines for World War II were already drawn in 1936 when Nazi Germany formed the Axis Alliance with Mussolini’s Fascist Italy and imperial Japan.

In his book Mein Kampf, written while he was imprisoned for treason in 1924, Hitler had already predicted future problems between Japan and the United States.

The Treaty of Versailles included a provision for establishing the League of Nations, which consisted of the Allied countries and any neutral countries that wanted to join. Not until years later was Germany allowed to join. The purpose of the League, which America did not join after Congress voted against it, was to prevent future wars. The League was a forerunner of the United Nations which was formed in May 1945, shortly before the end of the second World War.

Germany was eventually allowed to join the League of Nations in 1926 after the country had been politically rehabilitated, but Hitler withdrew from it because the main objective of the Nazi party was to overturn the Treaty of Versailles.
In July 1938, President Roosevelt sponsored a conference at which the countries of the Western world met to decide what to do about the problem of thousands of German Jewish refugees, but no country was willing to change its immigration quotas, including the United States of America.

The end result was the Holocaust in which 6 million Jews died.  I wrote about the German Jews, who were killed in the Holocaust, in this previous blog post:

Is there any standard at all for carrying oneself through a museum honoring 4.1 million lost souls?

Filed under: Holocaust — Tags: , — furtherglory @ 8:07 am

My blog post today is a tribute to an excellent piece of writing, which I read this morning in the Irish Times online.

This is the headline of the article:

Travel Writer Auschwitz: “I remained ashamedly stoic, wondering ‘why did we come here?'”

Underneath a photo of the gatehouse at the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp, I read this quote: “Is there any standard at all for carrying oneself through a museum honoring 4.1 million lost souls?”

I would like to make Kelly Konya, the author of the article, feel better by pointing out that it was not 4.1 million Jews who were murdered at Auschwitz — it was only 1.1 million people.  The number of 4 million, which was given at the International Nuremberg Trial of the German war criminals, was a gross exaggeration. The number has been officially cut down to 1.1 million, which includes 900,000 Jews, several thousand Gypsies and a few miscellaneous others.

The article includes an excellent photo of the Auschwitz-Birkenau gatehouse taken from an unusual angle.  I took the photo below on one of my three trips to the camp.

My 2005 photo of the Auschwitz-Birkenau gate house

My 2005 photo of the gate house entrance into the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp

This quote is from the article:

I knew that going to Poland for the sole purpose of seeing Auschwitz was problematic, and our roundabout trek from Kraków to the site underscored this fact. The woman at the airport gave us confused directions; the Starbucks barista put us on the wrong bus entirely. It was as if the town itself wanted to forget that the camps were there.

“the Starbucks barista”?  There was a time when the idea of a Starbucks, located anywhere near Auschwitz, would have been considered unthinkable.

This quote is also from the article:

The unexplainable attraction to sites of mass death or suffering is labeled “thanatourism,” or dark tourism. Ground Zero in New York City, the Dachau, Mathausen, and Terezin concentration camps, and the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum in Cambodia are only a few of such places that tourists flock to each year. Some psychologists believe the appeal of dark sites is hidden beneath a human desire to feel more alive. According to Dr. Philip Stone of the Institute for Dark Tourism Research, people feel anxious before visiting dark places, “and then better when they leave, glad that it’s not them.”

Whatever my reason for visiting Auschwitz, I did not leave feeling alive, nor did I satisfy any morbid intrigue. In fact, walking through Auschwitz left me feeling anything but full of life; instead, I felt demoralized and more alienated by humanity than ever before.

Gröning Holocaust trial ‘may have been for nothing’

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust — Tags: — furtherglory @ 8:55 am

The title of my blog post today is a quote from the headline on the latest news article about Oskar Groening, the accountant of Auschwitz who has been recently convicted of being an “accessory to murder.”

Oskar Groening still clinging to life after his conviction

Oskar Groening still clinging to life after his conviction

In the photo above, Oskar Groening appears to be pleading with God to deliver him from the hateful Jews who want him to be sentenced to life in prison.

This quote is from the news story:

Oskar Gröning’s conviction has still not been upheld, as appeals from both plaintiffs and defense wait to be heard. Prosecutors fear that the ruling will be left hanging forever, diminishing its historical importance. […]

Former SS officer Oskar Gröning was convicted a week ago, but the legal process is a long way from over. Both the defense and a handful of co-plaintiffs have now appealed the verdict of the Lüneburg court, which saw the “accountant of Auschwitz” sentenced to four years in prison on 300,000 counts of accessory to murder.

The co-plaintiffs, all based in the United States, think the sentence is too short, and have instructed their Berlin-based lawyer Andreas Schulz to appeal to Germany’s Federal Court of Justice (BGH) to change Gröning’s conviction from accessory to murder to actual murder. “The legal consequence of a murder conviction would be a life sentence,” Schulz told “Der Spiegel” news magazine last Thursday.

That appeal has been derided in the media as “nonsense” by various legal commentators. Gröning spent two years at Auschwitz counting and sorting cash taken from the Jews arriving at the camp. He also stood guard on the ramp as the new arrivals were ordered from the trains. Without proof of any specific crimes, jurists said, there is no way that German law can uphold a murder conviction. “During the trial, I didn’t hear a single piece of evidence that could support a murder conviction,” said lawyer Thomas Walther.

In my humble opinion, this story sheds some light on why the Jews were Holocausted in the first place.  It is because the first three rules of the Jewish religion are REVENGE, REVENGE, REVENGE.

Oskar Groening is literally on his death bed, but these survivors who are living the good life in America now, courtesy of the Holocaust, want him to spend the rest of his life in prison. That kind of attitude contributed to the reason that Hitler wanted the Jews out of Germany in the first place.

Good news! Rudolf Hess is alive and well and giving speeches in England (updated)

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust, World War II — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 12:19 pm

Update 6:50 a.m. July 27, 2015

Yesterday, I mistakenly wrote that Rudolf Hess was present. It was actually a friend of Hess who spoke at the meeting. This quote is from another news article:

Former Spandau prison worker Abdallah Melaouhi, self-described ‘best friend’ of Hitler’s deputy, Rudolf Hess, was also a speaker at yesterday’s event.
Speaking in German, with translation provided by Irving, Melaouhi told the crowd about his time working as a prison nurse. He attended to Hess between 1982 and 1987 when Hess was held prisoner in Spandau, Germany, for war crimes.

Hess, Hitler’s deputy who during the Second World War was held prisoner after his plane crashed in Scotland in 1941, hanged himself in 1987. Melaouhi claimed Hess was murdered and released a book about him, describing him as ‘a man of great vision, intelligence and compassion’.

Update 1:37 p.m. July 26, 2015  Now that I have read the article more carefully, I see that it was the “best friend of Rudolf Hess”, who was there, not Rudolf Hess himself.

Continue reading my original post.

According to a news article, which you can read in full here, Rudolf Hess, who was Hitler’s deputy, is alive and well and he is speaking to Holocaust deniers in London, even women and teenagers.

I wrote about Rudolf Hess in this previous blog post:

This headline is part of the article, cited above:

  • Neo Nazis held secret meeting in four-star hotel in South Kensington
  • Event attracted 120 Right-wing sympathisers, including women and teens
  • ‘Best friend’ of Hitler’s deputy, Rudolf Hess, was also a guest speaker

This quote is from the news article:

Convicted Holocaust denier David Irving addressed fascist sympathisers and neo Nazis at a secret meeting in London yesterday.

Irving, a historian who famously lost a libel case after denying the existence of Nazi gas chambers, was the star speaker at an event that attracted an audience of 120 Right-wing sympathisers, including women and teenagers.

Behind closed doors at a four-star hotel in South Kensington, the discredited author gave a speech condemning the Second World War Allied bombing campaign over Germany and Nazi-occupied Europe as ‘a war crime’.

Irving’s contentious speech was titled: ‘Saturation Bombing in World War II – who is to blame?’

The photo of David Irving, shown above, was included with the news article.  Is this a recent photo?  If so, I am happy to see that he is doing so well.  I assume that Rudolf Hess, who died years ago, was also looking well.

German people might soon be allowed to read Mein Kampf

Hitler's famous book Mein Kampf (My Struggle)

Hitler’s famous book Mein Kampf  English translation: My Struggle

According to a news article, which you can read in full here, German citizens might soon be allowed to read Hitler’s infamous book entitled Mein Kampf.

This quote is from the news article:

Begin quote:

[Bavarian historian Christian] Hartmann works for the publicly funded German historical society IfZ. In 2009, as officials began to worry about what to do with the copyright set to expire, the IfZ applied for a tender from the state of Bavaria to produce an updated, annotated version of “Mein Kampf” providing a framework of historical context and critical analysis. Bavaria contracted the institute to prepare the new edition in order to pre-empt the publication of other editions with the expiry of the copyright.

“We have added more than 3,500 footnotes so far and have proven Hitler’s assertions to be wrong in hundreds of details,” Hartmann told SZ.

Though some groups are still trying to stop the new edition from being published on the grounds of Hitler’s discriminatory language, Hartmann believes that he has the law on his side.

“Our work is protected by Article 5 of the Basic Law for the Federal Republic of Germany, which covers freedom of research and scholarship,” Hartmann told SZ.

92 year old man accused of serving in a death camp — I hope this goes to trial!

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 12:40 pm

You can read here about the latest German man who is being accused of being an accomplice in the death of Jews at Auschwitz-Birkenau.

Why do I hope that this will go to trial? Because he is accused of being an accomplice, starting in November 1942.  You can read about the gassing that started at Auschwitz-Birkenau in November 1942 on this page of my website:

The following quote is from my website:

Building where the clothing of Auschwitz prisoners were disinfected with Zyklon-B gas

Building where the clothing of Auschwitz prisoners were disinfected with Zyklon-B gas (Click to enlarge)

There are two buildings located on the south side of the Auschwtiz-Birkenau camp, which were used to delouse the prisoners’ clothing with Zyklon-B, the same gas that was used to kill the Jews in the gas chambers. The two buildings are shaped like the letter T and are mirror images of each other.

The photo above shows building BW5b which is located in the B1b section of Birkenau on the left side of the camp as you are standing at the entrance gate into the camp. The east wing of the building above was used for delousing.

The second delousing building is BW5a in the B1a section, which is on the other side of the fence on the right in the photo above. The west wing of the BW5a building was used for delousing. Both of these brick buildings also had shower rooms for the in-coming prisoners.

On the blueprints of these buildings, the delousing room was called a Gaskammer which means gas chamber in English.

Did you catch that?  A building where clothing was deloused with Zyklon-B gas pellets was called a GASKAMMER, which is the German word for GAS CHAMBER.

The photo below shows a blueprint of the building where clothing was deloused with Zyklon-B gas.  Notice the word “Gaskammer” right under the number 1 in red.


So there you have it. This 92 year old man was trying to save lives by working in a building that had a gas chamber for delousing the clothing of the incoming Jews, in an effort to SAVE lives.

Photographs of the human hair in the Auschwitz Museum are no longer allowed

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 11:03 am

From a news article, which you can read in full here, I have learned that photographs of the hair, cut from the heads of the Jews at Auschwitz, are no longer allowed. Is this because the hair might be harmed by the flash of cameras? No, I think it is to prevent tourists from being trampled to death.

This quote is from the news article:

Knowing what was behind the glass [display cases] made it all so surreal.

Kevin Wagner of Carlisle was told heading into the [museum] room that no photography was allowed; that the contents [of the display cases] were considered holy by Jews.

There piled high from floor to ceiling [in a display case] was a mound of human hair shaved from the heads of men, women and children doomed to suffer an untimely death in the gas chambers of Auschwitz.

It was a co-mingled mass of strands colored black, brown and red with some even done up in braids. It was way too much to process…way too much to take in at once. Overwhelmed, Wagner broke down and cried while two others in the group left the room unsettled by the sight of so much lost humanity.

“How could another human being do this to somebody?” recalled Wagner, social studies program chair for the Carlisle Area School District.

“It was methodically efficient,” he added. “You can’t wrap your head around how someone can come up with that.”

Wait a minute! Was the hair cut from the heads of the Jews before or after they went into the gas chamber?  It would have been difficult to cut the hair from the dead bodies AFTER the Jews were gassed, so the hair must have been cut BEFORE the gassing. So why does the hair show the effects of gassing?

Personally, I think that the reason that photographs of the hair at Auschwitz are no longer allowed, is because there were, in the past, so many tourists crowding around the hair exhibit, trying to take photos, that there was a serious danger of someone being trampled to death.

When I first visited the exhibits in the main Auschwitz camp in 1998, there were so many people trying to take photos of the hair that I could not get close enough to take a photo. I had to be satisfied with taking a photo of a small amount of human hair.

I took the photo above in the Auschwitz Museum in 1998.  I have borrowed the photo below, which was taken by a Polish photographer in 2004.

The photo above shows that the hair of the women at Auschwitz was cut before they were sent to the gas chamber.  In fact, these women look as if they have been selected to work at Auschwitz-Birkenau. Why was their hair shaved?  The hair must have been shaved to prevent typhus, which is spread by lice that hides in the hair. Their public hair was also shaved — by a man.

This quote is also from the news article, cited above:

As World War II in Europe drew to a close, the Red Army of the Soviet Union was advancing rapidly from the east. Eager to hide evidence of the Holocaust, the Nazis burned to the ground the death camp at Belzec.

Wagner [who visited Belzec] described that memorial as a lunar landscape on a slope with a center path where visitors walk down a ramp to a wall carved with hundreds of Jewish surnames. The further Wagner descended, the more confining the space until he felt as though he was about to suffocate.

On my trips to Poland, many years ago, I did not visit Belzec because my tour guide told me that there was absolutely nothing there to see, except an empty field; the memorial had not yet been built. The Holocaust allegedly started with the gassing of Jews at Belzec, so why did Belzec get no respect for many years?
