Please, please, please — stop using photos like the one above to illustrate the horror of Auschwitz.  One prisoner in the photo is having trouble walking out of the camp, after it was liberated, but the other men in the photo look like they are in excellent condition.

The photo above was used in a news story about how Auschwitz survivors confronted Reinhold Hanning, a former SS man who worked at the Auswchwitz 1 camp.  Hanning allegedly mistreated the prisoners at Auschwitz, so let’s see some photos of the prisoners who were mistreated.

Notice the man on the far right, who has a double chin. None of the survivors of the Auschwitz main camp look like they were starving.

The photo above would be more suitable for showing the prisoners after they had been liberated from the main Auschwitz camp.

The photo above would be suitable to illustrate the horror of the Auschwitz camp, but why was this boy allowed to live?  He was under the age of 15, and he was not in good health, so why wasn’t he gassed?

The photo above is also used in the news article, but again, this shows that the survivors of Auschwitz were in good health.  The man in the center of the photo is leaning on a crutch, but maybe he had just sprained his ankle.  At least, the Nazis provided him with a crutch, instead of forcing him to crawl around.

The photo below is my favorite Auschwitz survivor photo.

Notice that the woman in the photo above is wrapped up in a warm comforter, but she is unhappy about being dragged out of her warm bed to pose for an Auschwitz liberation movie.


  1. German Justice …. the whore of the elite for centuries. These trials are the result of the law ,with the consent of the elite being reinterpreted in 2011, under pressure from Jewish lobbies. They are not the result of any ” war criminals ” being found after 70 years of searching. They are show trials as the verdict is known in advance ie guilty .
    Anybody who worked in any capacity at the Aktion Reinhard camps as well as Auschwitz 2 ( aka Birkenau ) was from 2011 liable to prosecution as an accomplice in murder. This gentleman was a guard in Auschwitz 1 during a period when no alleged homicidal gassings occurred there
    The only interesting thing in this case is that if he is found guilty which is a foregone conclusion it will extend the net even further to all concentration camps including Belsen, Buchenwald as well as opening up the possibility of laying charges against those who worked in any capacity for the German rail system during the war. The aim will be to criminalise the Hitler Youth members on the charge of co conspiracy.

    • The show must go on…

      Be lenient with the Zio-Masonic Globalist elites. They can’t sell a thing as miserable, absurd and unexciting as democracy, nor a state as aggressive and murderous as Israel, nor a project as lousy and cynical as the establishment of a borderless and raceless world of greedy fool consumers, without their so dear “there’s no pleasant life and freedom outside democracy” & “Jews need their own state as a refuge for the next shoah” deception-show.

          I mean that all these mock trials of old ‘Nazis’ (who will never go to jail) are mere theater plays only intended to keep the Holo-show going on and on. And I also mean that the Holohoax is a new religion which is central to the Zio-Masonic Globalist ‘New World Order’, and that this is the reason why it is so heavily promoted and supported by Jew-owned academia and mainstream media.

          • HERMIE. What does it mean Zio-Massonic Globalst World Order? Or do you prefer the ISIS Islamist World Order? If so, remember the ties between Nazis and Islamists.

              That’s a Jewish & Masonic program over centuries for the establishment of a Jerusalem-centered world government through the obliteration of all races (except the Jewish race), states (except the State of Israel) and religions (except Judaism), and the Jewish grabbing of all world wealth. The idea is to secure the coming of the Jewish Messiah (who will come only when Jewry owns all world wealth) ruling the world from Jerusalem. To the dumb gullible Freemasons (Jewry’s useful idiots), the idea is to bring a utopian/unrealistic world of universal brotherhood and everlasting world peace into existence, culminating with the rebuilding of the Jerusalem Temple.

              I prefer none of these.

              ISIS world order, what a joke!! If any group is out for world domination, that’s your own race.

              A Bosnian Handschar division and a support for the anti-Zionist resistance by the Mufti of Jerusalem are no big deal. Germany supported the Mufti’s anti-Zionist struggle during WW2 mainly in order to cause trouble to her British enemy. Basic war strategy. Germany also supported the Indian independence movements during both world wars for the same purposes. Mere implementation of the principle “The enemy of my enemy is my friend.”

  2. Considering that Auschwitz was without electricity, running water, waste and sewage disposal for between 6 to 8 days after the Germans had evacuated the camps – plus the fact that any available food and medical supplies had to be scavenged for, then the inmates that we see in the above photos are in relatively good health. Fair enough we are not seeing those who might be lying sick or emaciated within the barracks, but the photos are indeed dishonest if they are being used to denigrate Reinhold Hanning before his trial opens.

    A more truthful set of images would be those that come from out out of the so-called ‘Auschwitz Album’ that were taken in the middle of 1944, when the camps were fully functional and Mr Hanning was actually present there.

    • I wrote about what it was like for the Jews at Monowitz after the Germans abandoned the Monowitz camp, marching out the Jews who could walk. Primo Levi was in the hospital there and couldn’t walk.

      • Your article about Primo Levy says that he was incarcerated in the hospital at Monowitz – not the one at Birkenau. I didn’t know that Monowitz had its own small hospital, but if so, this would account for Levi’s claim in his book “that there were constant selections made in the hospital. The patients who didn’t get well in a hurry were sent to the gas chamber”.

        It becomes clear therefore, that – yes, selections were made in the hospital at Monowitz, but the patients were not being sent for extermination, but being transferred to the main hospital at Birkenau, the quarantine block, or the convalescence depot there. Levy probably didn’t know this at the time, and only after the war, when the “selections for gas chambers” myth exploded on to the international scene, did he combine his own experience with the official story as laid down by the Nuremburg Tribunals.

        • Here is Levi’s famous poem, “If this is a man”:

          Begin quote

          You who live safe
          In your warm houses,
          You who find, returning in the evening,
          Hot food and friendly faces:
          Consider if this is a man
          Who works in the mud
          Who does not know peace
          Who fights for a scrap of bread
          Who dies because of a yes or a no.
          Consider if this is a woman,
          Without hair and without name
          With no more strength to remember,
          Her eyes empty and her womb cold
          Like a frog in winter.
          Meditate that this came about:
          I commend these words to you.
          Carve them in your hearts
          At home, in the street,
          Going to bed, rising;
          Repeat them to your children,
          Or may your house fall apart,
          May illness impede you,
          May your children turn their faces from you.
          End quote

          This famous poem shows Primo Levi’s attitude. He was treated well at the Monowitz camp where he was a prisoner, yet he was whining and complaining the whole time.

          • FUTHERGLORY. I am not a friend of Primo Levi. However he as a specialis chemics he could stay in not a so hellish condition as many and many other inmates. Note that, in the first years after his return home he could not find a pubblisher, perhaps his evidence did not suit the comunist efforts to enlist former fascists in party ranks. His writings got the deserved attention and success only years after war end.
