The little-known, sad story of Franz Hössler

Filed under: Uncategorized — furtherglory @ 4:17 pm

Update July 6, 2015:

The latest death toll for Bergen-Belsen is 72,000. You can read the true facts about Bergen-Belsen in this news article: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3056202/Holocaust-survivors-paying-sombre-tribute-commemorate-liberation-Bergen-Belsen-concentration-camp-70-years-ago.html

However, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum says that only 50,000 people died at Bergen-Belsen.

Ever since I saw the British movie about Bergen-Belsen at the Memorial Site, many years ago, I have been concerned about the sad story of Franz Hössler.

In the movie, Hössler was forced to stand in front of a wagon load of bodies that were the bodies of prisoners who had died of typhus or other diseases after the Bergen-Belsen camp had been voluntarily turned over to the British.  The movie showed that he was being deliberately humiliated by being forced to tell lies about his duties in the camp.

I wrote about Hössler in this previous blog post:  https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2011/09/26/franz-hoessler-the-commander-of-the-womens-camp-at-auschwitz-birkenau/

Hössler was convicted of “Crimes Against Humanity,” in the Belsen Trial, conducted by the British, after the camp had been voluntarily turned over to them. Hössler had voluntarily stayed behind to help the British.

I’m sure that Hössler didn’t know that he would be arrested and charged with “Crimes Against Humanity” when he foolishly stayed behind to help the British, so I am going to give the definition of this crime for the benefit of his descendants, if he has any.

“Crimes against humanity” include any of the following acts committed as part of a widespread or systematic attack directed against any civilian population, with knowledge of the attack:

murder; extermination; enslavement; deportation or forcible transfer of population; imprisonment; torture; rape, sexual slavery, enforced prostitution, forced pregnancy, enforced sterilization, or any other form of sexual violence of comparable gravity; persecution against an identifiable group on political, racial, national, ethnic, cultural, religious or gender grounds; enforced disappearance of persons; the crime of apartheid; other inhumane acts of a similar character intentionally causing great suffering or serious bodily or mental injury.

Which of these crimes did Hössler committ at Dachau, Auschwitz, or Bergen-Belsen? Let’s go to Wikipedia to find the answer:

Franz Hößler, also Franz Hössler was a Nazi German SS-Obersturmführer and Schutzhaftlagerführer at the Auschwitz-Birkenau, Dora-Mittelbau and Bergen-Belsen concentration camps during World War II. Wikipedia

Born: February 4, 1906, Marktoberdorf, Germany
Franz Hößler, also Franz Hössler

Captured by the Allies at the end of the war, Hößler was charged with crimes against humanity in the First Bergen-Belsen Trial, found guilty, and sentenced to death. He was executed by hanging at Hameln Prison in 1945.[…]

After the establishment of the Dachau concentration camp in July 1933, he became the first member of the guard staff and worked later as a cook. He served at Dachau until after the outbreak of World War II.[6][7]

[…]

On 8 April 1945, Hößler arrived with his transport at Bergen-Belsen and became deputy camp commander under Josef Kramer.[15] There he directly shot prisoners until the liberation of the camp, crimes for which he would be eventually arrested andtried. On 15 April 1945, Hößler was found hiding among the prisoners in camouflaged clothing and was detained with the remaining SS staff by a unit of the British Army. The SS detainees were then forced to bury thousands of corpses lying around on the camp grounds in mass graves.[16]

[…]

Hößler and 44 other camp staff were tried in the Belsen Trial by a British military court at Lüneburg. The trial lasted several weeks from September to November 1945. During the trial Anita Lasker testified that he took part in selections for the gas chamber.[17] On 17 November 1945 Hößler was sentenced to death by hanging. The sentence was carried out by British hangman Albert Pierrepoint on 13 December 1945 at Hameln prison.[6]

Note that Wikipedia says this:  On 15 April 1945, Hößler was found hiding among the prisoners in camouflaged clothing and was detained with the remaining SS staff by a unit of the British Army.

So Hössler volunteered to stay behind at Bergen-Belsen, to help the British, but then he hid in camouflaged clothing and was detained by the British, along with the remaining SS staff.

Notice that Hössler had kept his uniform and he put it on after he was “detained by the British” and forced to speak in a movie that they made, to show the horror of the Belsen camp and the war crimes committed by the Germans.

The barracks at Bergen-Belsen were burned down by the British to stop the epidemic of typhus

The barracks at Bergen-Belsen were burned down by the British to stop the epidemic of typhus which had killed thousands of prisoners

Here’s the rest of the story, according to this page on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anita_Lasker-Wallfisch

During the Belsen Trial which took place from September to November 1945 Anita testified against among others the camp commandant Josef Kramer, camp doctor Fritz Klein and deputy camp commandant Franz Hössler who were all sentenced to death and hanged that year.[3]

To what could Anita Lasker-Wallfisch have testified at the Belsen trial? Did she testify that Franz Hössler had failed to bow low enough to her when he voluntarily stayed behind to help the prisoners at Bergen-Belsen during a typhus epidemic?

I would really like to know which “crime against humanity” was committed by Hössler. Did he deliberately infect prisoners with typhus?

  2. That’s the most information I have seen in one place.

  3. To be considered as Crimes against humanity” include any of the following acts committed as part of a widespread or systematic attack directed against any civilian population, with knowledge of the attack:
    murder; extermination; enslavement; deportation or forcible transfer of population; imprisonment; torture; rape, sexual slavery, enforced prostitution, forced pregnancy, enforced sterilization, or any other form of sexual violence of comparable gravity; persecution against an identifiable group on political, racial, national, ethnic, cultural, religious or gender grounds; enforced disappearance of persons; the crime of apartheid; other inhumane acts of a similar character intentionally causing great suffering or serious bodily or mental injury.

    All of these crimes have been committed by the ” allies ” of WW2. To be charged before a criminal court for the above crimes you need to be on the losing side, being a victor means never having to appear before a war crimes tribunal.

  4. To what could Anita Lasker-Wallfisch have testified at the Belsen trial?

    As you wrote above: During the trial Anita Lasker testified that he took part in selections for the gas chamber.

    One wonders when — or if — the British will have the decency to admit that there was no gas chamber at B-B.

    Anyway, given the horrible conditions and scenes the British found, the remaining Germans were never going to escape the severest punishment.

    • I just clicked the link in this comment.
      Holy crap.
      I’m now going to go wash my hands.
      I thought the boys over at Storm Front were bad.

      • Bad? As in truthful?
        That’s why the world is getting so intolerable.
        Many people have an aversion to facts.

        Comment by sonofeurope — July 24, 2015 @ 6:28 pm

        • No, I’m not talking about the truth. I’m talking about the hideous anti-Semitic cartoons. I do recognize one of them, the tame one about the stab in back, that one I think is from the 20’s.
          Do you honestly see Jews that way, as monsters? Is that how you see the world? Finally, do you even know any Jews? Have you met a Jew? I know it’s difficult in some parts of Europe due to the fact the Nazis wiped them out. It might help you to do so.
          Jews are humans, separated by age, ethnicity, political beliefs, sexual orientation, etc. They are not what you depict on that web page.

          • Not that you will bother looking at it you shameless shill, but I have painstakingly put together this monster mega post proving most of the negative things said about that demonic tribe are true. I could have easily made it 10X as long as it now is, but considerations of space limited me. I post it not for idiots like you, but for if there are lurkers reading this who are seriously curious to see why these monsters are justly hated:

            Most of it is here, from how they stabbed Germany in the back, faked the “Holocaust”, murder Palestinian civilians, and tons more.

            • WoW! That’s a LOT of useful information!!
              Thanks a ton!
              I can’t wait to share this link with everybody I know!

              Thanks for the info!

            • I’m surprised that you are a Holocaust Denier. From what I can tell, you would applaud and pour the Zyclon B into the chamber, turn on the engine and/or shoot defenseless women and children in the back. You would say that it was justified.
              You didn’t answer the question, “Son of Europe.” Have you ever met a Jew?
              And as for the Stab in the Back MYTH, Jews in Germany during WW1 died at the front at the same rate as regular Germans. I bet it shames you that your hero, Adolph Hitler received his Iron Cross First Class on the recommendation of a JEWISH officer. Just think of that, a greasy Jew pinning that Iron Cross on Hitler’s proud chest. Are you feeling nauseous? Do you want to vomit now?
              Germany lost WW1 because it wore itself out over 4 years of fighting, the British Blockade, weak allies, the governments inflationary policies and the introduction of fresh US troops not Jews stabbing them in the back.
              Before I go I want you to picture it one more time:
              A Jew, dressed in a German officer’s uniform, pinning an Iron Cross, First Class, pinning it on Hitler’s chest.

              Comment by HCW — July 30, 2015 @ 3:14 pm

              • What an asinine question. “Have I met a jew”. I grew up in the “entertainment capital of the world” so I was swimming in fucking jews so I know them inside out. Most of my friends were jews, I even dated jews, so don’t try to pull than angle. Besides, it’s not the jews themselves, but the evil things they do and all the misery they create.
                All we want is to be left alone to manage our own affairs. It’s just jew shills like yourself and idiots brainwashed by your garbage who say we want to harm anyone. After all, we are not israelis! LOL!
                Anyway, that holocaust fairy tale is full of so many gaping holes I don’t see how anyone over the age of 5 can take that shit seriously. In fact everything you claim is true can only be conceived as such by ignoring many of the pertinent facts. Will you deny the jews are entirely responsible for communism? And what is this “new world order” you are currently pushing for? It is just Communism under another name.
                Anyway, please stop wasting my time as you are obviously an idiot. All the information anyone needs to know is in the link I provided so fuck off. Your words are as the rattling of pebbles inside a tin can they are so meaningless and distracting.

                Comment by sonofeurope — July 30, 2015 @ 3:31 pm

                • I’m not pushing for any new world order, what are you talking about? I think the garbage you peddle has rotted out your brains. Or perhaps the revelation that Hitler once stooped to accept Germany’s highest military order from a Jew has unhinged you? But why would you not want the Holocaust to be true? After all, it would get rid of all of the Jewish evil in the world. And only the delusional would think that Communism was a Jewish plot. Or perhaps only someone with a child like brain with a child like need to explain the boogeyman hiding in the corner?
                  I can’t be angry at someone whose child like need to reduce all of the evils to such a simplistic world view. I pity someone who feels the need to hide behind nasty cartoons and filthy racism to hide the fact they are frightened by that which they don’t understand.

                • I’ve not bothered reading any of your BS. The link has all the information anyone would need to know. Why you childishly insist on going back and forth with me I don’t know. I went through a lot of trouble compiling that information so I wouldn’t have to waste time on assholes like you.
                  Be a gent and buzz off now. Like all members of your tribe you are genuinely annoying.

                • I’m not a Jew, dipshit. I’ve been to your website. If the crap you put in those links is peddling the same crap, I’ve seen it. It’s still the same racist ignorant crap I’ve seen before.

                  Comment by HCW — July 30, 2015 @ 9:33 pm

                • Wow, that’s a witty rejoinder. You’re something of an imbecile, aren’t you? So, according to you, facts are “crap”. LOL! No, YOU, my friend, are crap.
                  People come to these blogs because they know PC is bullshit and is destroying the west, so calling something “racist” isn’t going to carry any weight around here.

                  Comment by sonofeurope — July 30, 2015 @ 11:27 pm

                • Wow! What a witty rejoinder there, calling facts you haven’t even bothered refuting “crap”. You are something of an imbecile, aren’t you? Actually, I think it’s obvious that it is YOU who are crap.
                  Also, people come to these blogs because they know PC is garbage and is doing possible irreversible harm to our civilization, so I wonder at how you think calling something “racist” is going to sway anybody here about anything.
                  Now please, stop childishly wasting everyone’s time and go away.

                  Comment by sonofeurope — July 30, 2015 @ 11:35 pm

                • Just ignore that asshole. He can’t refute anything in that link. Fucks just never know when to shut up.

                  Well, the good part about pricks like them is they give me an opportunity to share my links so other people can see the light.

                • Why would I follow your links when all I have to do is click on your original link for that vile website you’ve already posted? As for refuting what you’ve said, I don’t have to refute the words of juvenile, racist pigs who resort to vile stereotypes to get their points
                  across.
                  Oh by the gentleman, do you kiss your mothers with those mouths?
                  I find that those who have no legs to stand on resort to foul language.

                • Why are you still yammering away at me? I told you have nothing to say to you as people can click the link if they want the facts.

                I like the one about the yids being behind child prostitution.
                No surprises there, they have always been pimps, panderers and pushers.
                Fucking scum.

                  And if you are no longer reading my comments then why do you keep replying?
