Found in Strasbourg: bodies of Jews used in experiments at Natzweiler

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 9:08 am

In a news article, which you can read in full here, it was reported today that the remains of 86 Jews, used in Nazi experiments during World War II, have been found.

This quote is from the news article:

The remains of 86 Jews used for Nazi experiments have been found at a laboratory in eastern France, it emerged today.

They had been killed in German gas chambers in 1943 during the Second World War Holocaust before their corpses and body parts were taken to the legal medical institute in Strasbourg.

It was thought they had been buried in a common grave in 1946, following the liberation of the city by the Allies two years earlier.

But the Strasbourg authorities confirmed many of the remains were, more than 70 years on, still being stored.

The discovery has raised serious concerns, with one organisation, which represents the UK Jewish community, stating that ‘serious questions’ needed to be asked.

A Board of Deputies of British Jews spokesman said: ‘This discovery raises serious questions about who knew about these remains and why they did not reveal this sooner.

This building, near the Natzweiler concentration camp, was the gas chamber building

This building, near the Natzweiler concentration camp, was the  building where Jews were gassed

When I visited the former Natzweiler concentration camp in 2004, I had to hire a driver to take me there, as there were no trains nor buses that went to the former camp.

I tried to hire another driver to take me to the gas chamber building, but I was told that it was strictly off limits and no one is allowed to get anywhere near it. I don’t know if that is still the case.

A book which I purchased from the Natzweiler Memorial Site, on my visit in 2004, has this to say about the gas chamber:

4. The affair of the Israelite corpses

Hirt, professor of anatomy in Strasbourg, received corpses from the camp of Russian war prisoners at Mutzig, but as he thought they were too lean, he asked for people in a good physical condition for studies on heredity.

87 Israelites (30 of whom were women) were sent from the camp at Auschwitz. They were shut up in block 13 at the Struthof where they were measured, and they had to undergo experiments on sterilization. On August 11, 13, 17, 19, 1943, under the direction of doctors from Strasburg, the S.S. gassed the 87 Israelites in the gas chamber at Struthof with cyanide. Death occurred after 30 to 60 seconds. The corpses were transported to the Institut d’Anatomie in Strasburg. 17 entire corpses (3 of which being women’s) were found at the liberation as well as many dissected pieces.

According to Dr. Lang, there were 16 of the 86 bodies (3 women and 13 men) that were found intact in November 1944, not 17, and an autopsy was performed on the bodies.

“The liberation” referred to in the above quote probably means the liberation of France in August 1944. The Natzweiler-Struthof camp was abandoned in September 1944 so it was not actually “liberated.”

Dr. Hans-Joachim Lang was able to identify the 86 Jews who were gassed at Natzweiler after locating their prisoner numbers in the Auschwitz archives. The 29 women and 57 men who were gassed had been deported to Auschwitz from Norway, Poland, Greece, France, Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands.

The bodies of the 86 victims are buried in the Jewish cemetery of Strasbourg and a grave stone with the 86 names was placed there in December 2005.

The Natzweiler-Struthof concentration camp was located on top of a 2,500 foot high mountain in the Vosges range, which was a ski area before the camp was built, and still is today as far as I know.

Natzweiler-Struthof was not a death camp, specifically built for the Holocaust, which was the mass extermination of the Jews. It was a camp for the imprisonment of convicted German criminals and Anti-Fascist resistance fighters.

However, the reason that Natzweiler is so well known today is that a small number of Jews were killed there in a gas chamber, according to the Simon Wiesenthal Center and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

The gas chamber building, shown in the photo above, has been preserved, although I don’t know if anyone is allowed to see it. However, it is not necessary to examine the gas chamber because we have the confession of Josef Kramer, in which he said that he personally gassed 80 Jews. Kramer made his confession after he was arrested at Bergen-Belsen when that camp was voluntarily turned over to the British on April 15, 1945.

Le Struthof, as the camp is known to the French, was located 31 miles from Strasbourg where Dr. August Hirt, a Professor at the University of Strasbourg, was conducting research on racial characteristics. When he requested Jewish skeletons that were undamaged by bullet holes or body blows, Heinrich Himmler ordered that Jews should be brought from Auschwitz to Natzweiler so that they could be killed in a gas chamber there.

In August 1943, a special gas chamber was constructed by adapting an existing building, formerly owned by the Struthof hotel, which was located about a mile from the concentration camp on a side road. This room had previously been used as a refrigerator room by the hotel.

Killing the Jews in one of the gas chambers at Auschwitz and shipping the skeletons to Strasbourg wouldn’t do – the skeletons had to be prepared with great care by Dr. Hirt himself.

According to a Tübingen Professor, Dr. Hans-Joachim Lang, two anthropologists, who were both members of the SS, Dr. Hans Fleischhacker and Bruno Beger, were sent in June 1943 to Auschwitz to select Jews to be gassed so that their skeletons could be added to the rassistische/rassenideologische collection of Dr. August Hirt. There were 57 men and 29 women in the group that was selected.

In the documents submitted to the Nuremberg International Military Tribunal, it is mentioned that the Jewish victims were put into quarantine for a time at Auschwitz because there was a typhus epidemic in the camp; then they were brought to Natzweiler-Struthof.

The Nuremberg IMT documents show that 86 corpses were brought to the Anatomie Institute of the Reichsuniversitat Strassburg and that an assistant of Prof. August Hirt saw the tattoos on the arms and secretly wrote down the 86 numbers on a piece of paper.

Update, 9:30 a.m. today

According to another news article, which you can read in full here:

When the story of Alice Simon was last told in the newspaper in 1994, her family in Wisconsin believed they finally had learned her fate. Records at Auschwitz death camp suggested she was murdered there by the Nazis.

Another shock was yet to come.

Alice, a 56-year-old widow who had sent her two children to safety in England, actually left Auschwitz alive, only to be killed days later in the gas chamber at another camp, Natzweiler-Struthof, in August 1943.

And there was more. The Nazis had a diabolical plan to create a museum display of Jewish people’s skeletons. Alice was one of those 86 people.

Hans-Joachim Lang, a German historian, painstakingly identified all of those victims from the numbers tattooed on their arms. Alice was marked with 45263. Lang learned as much as he could about each one and their families, and in 2004 wrote a book called “Die Namen der Nummern,” which translates to “the names of the numbers.”


  1. What a load of BS!!!
    Killed in gas chambers that no one can see at one location and then bodies brought in from Auschwitz!!!
    Only the gullible will eat this garbage…

    • This has nothing to do with the price of tea in China, but it’s worth mentioning. This ones a load BS too. There’s a show im watching now. “Auschwitz:hitlers final solution”. It’s worth mentioning. They said Treblinka no longer exists because the Krauts tore it down when they left. Okay. They spoke of the Hebs being gassed with exhaust fumes. Thry showed a picture of the place where the Heb’s got the exhaust fumes. Smoke is coming out through the exhaust pipes in the roof ( no this wasn’t where they torched the jews.they said it was building with exhaust fumes). Then the idiot narrating the show,turns around and says it was “gas”. Make up my mind,which is it. Then they got some other hammerhead jew talking about some SS officer at some camp,who was kind and decent towards the jews. No! That’s impossible. All SS men were assholes. They then showed a different way for torching the stiffs. A pit was dug. Inside that pit,another pit was dug. They bombed the pit and then poured gas on the jews. I thought you had to maintain a consistent temperature,in order to torch the bodies effectively. Next thing they had was,”super jew”. He came up with a “bold plan” ,for an escape. There was a jew that worked in the motor pool. He repaired the kraut cars. Super jew told him to boost a car for their escape. Next on the list. Super Jew had a couple of his boys with him. Now they stroll right past SS guards and God. They waltz right on into a hut that holds uniforms and weapons. They’re losded for bear. Loading up on the grenades and mp40s. They each put on a Nazi uniform. They get in the car,that the one nazi boosted. They got another gate to get through. It was like a gate on the perimeter. Super Jew tells his crew ( this ain’t verbatim) ,” if it looks like we aint gonna make it past this gate,then we kill ourselves”. They done beat the odds and at the last minute super jew said they gonna kill themselves if they get busted. Super Jew pipes up and thought to himself,”these men are depending on me. I have to do something.” They hit the guard shack. Super jew pops off with something to say to the guards. Low and behold,super Jew saves the day again. Come on. This BS is a movie script somewhere. No surprise the jews the Jews own a shit load of Hollywood. They’re as phony as Hollywood herself.

      • The men you are describing from the motor pool were not Jews. They were Poles, one of them was a Catholic priest. The reason why they did not use their weapons was they did not want the other prisoners to be punished for them killing German guards. The leader of the group decided that if they were caught they would commit suicide so they would not be recaptured. I remember this both from the program and from the book.

        • I remember all that. Now I wasn’t there and you weren’t there. Clearly we don’t know the specifics of the story. I’m talking “commitment”. If you’re gonna have the stones to pull that,you better be ready to go to the proverbial “mat”. Contingency. Is that word in their vocabulary? Maybe the term ,”unforeseen circumstance”. The HNIC only had the one plan? I would’ve told him to get f**cked. Ya can’t say he wasn’t thinking clearly. He came up with the plan. If these guys got caught they were going to shoot themselves . Nothing would happen to the prisoners still back at the camp? Successful or not,some of the people back at the camp would still have to pay the bar tab while those 4 chuckleheads have the party. If I’m gonna go through all that heartache,im gonna have a backup plan in case that one didn’t fly. All that BS just to off yourself if your shit don’t fly with the guards. Cmon. That shit don’t fly either . Remember when we had the Texas 7 escape from the pen back in December 2000? I knew somebody locked down there. He said the Screws were hammerin down on everyone. This idiot is trying to convince us he’s worried about reprisals on his fellow man. Please. Use the guns or not. Successful or not, you know damn good and well the Krauts are gonna make “examples” of these idiots. The minute they’ve managed to cover anything (probably would’ve taken a few weeks) and back in their “comfort zone” in a safe area, they were probably hammering down a few and gettin laid. History is written by those who write it. All you got is the version given by those 4 men. Be awful damn tempting to make yourself look ” 10 feet tall and bullet proof”. Clearly they made the break. Fooled a Screws in the process, but I still question some of it

  2. I wonder if the remains today would display evidence of death by cyanide gas. I know – can’t check. Talmudic law, respect for the (Jewish) dead, etc., etc.

    Anything to prevent information.

    • I was waiting for someone to ask that.

  3. What the f**k ever. The jew community said,”this raises some serious questions,about who knew about this and why it wasn’t revealed sooner.” WTF ! What. We’re running out of nazis to prosecute,so we’re gonna come up with some other BS? I like how this clown said he gassed 80 of ’em. Okay. Who gassed the remaining 6? I guess it’s against union rule to gas more than 80. What about this building formerly owned by the hotel? I went looking for it on the net. I didn’t find anything about it. I thought it was so damned important that “everything”,dealing with the holocaust be written down. 70 years later and this shit just now come to light? You got the remains of 80 stiffs and nobody noticed. Guess people thought they were hog jowls or pickled pigs feet. These people are so outrageous,it’s not even funny

  4. Apparently 46 of the 89 Jews gassed at Natzweiller were from Thesselonika. Note that Dr. Lang is promoting the Auschwitz mass gassings myth. He provides “selection” totals for various transports the Natzweiler victims arrived at Auschwitz in. BTW If Dr. Hirt had requsitioned and gassed Jews to make skeletons out of how did Dr. Lang find their tattooed numbers? I smell some over ripe schmutz in ths story.

  5. I’ll bet the Hitler mustache on Dr. Hurt was painted onto the photograph by someone in the U.S. Army Dept. Psychological Warfare SHAEF, or in Soviet intelligence and submitted as evidence to Nuremburg prosecutors. Thomas Dodd presented two shrunken Jivaro tsantas (Amazonian shrunken heads) at the IMT and claimed they were the heads of two Polish prisoners who had been killed and their heads shrunk for looking askance at German women. Pioneer revisionist David Cole Stein (whose new book is a gas) insists he’s found the paper trail confirming the guilt of Dr. Hirt and the existance of his experimental (used only once to kill the 89 Jews) Natzweiler-Struhoff gas chamber.
