Just in case there might be some newbs reading this, who don’t know who the most diabolical criminal in all human history was, I won’t keep you in suspense. “The most diabolical criminal in all human history” was, of course, Rudolf Hoess, the commandant of Auschwitz.

Rudolf Hoess

The following quote is from a news article which you can read in full here:

Begin quote

The Auschwitz commander [Rudolf Hoess] who oversaw the deaths of 2.5 million people was captured and interrogated by a Jewish soldier.

Liverpool-born Karl Louis Abrahams was part of the team which tracked down Rudolf Hoess, the man in charge of the [Auschwitz] death camp in Nazi-occupied Poland from 1940 to 1943.

The arrest was made on March 11 1946, 70 years ago this week.

Hoess introduced the use of Zyklon B in the camp’s gas chambers, which could kill 2,000 victims in less than an hour, and confessed in 1946 to being responsible for 2.5 million deaths – most of them Jews.

Sergeant Karl Abrahams joined the British Army Intelligence Corps in 1942, but it was not until 1946 that he was given the mission of his life, to apprehend who he called “the most diabolical criminal in all human history”.

You can read the confession of Rudolf Hoess on my website here:

The current number, for the Jews killed at Auschwitz is 1.1 million. Why did Rudolf Hoess confess to more than twice this number?  The newspaper article does not mention that Rudolf Hoess was tortured, by “the Jewish Brigade”, in order to force him to give this false confession.
