The scale of Birkenau is overwhelming, and it was built for the sole purpose of murdering Jews

British students on HET tour at Birkenau

British HET tour at Auschwitz-Birkenau

The title of this blog post comes from a British news article which you can read in full at  http://www.watfordobserver.co.uk/news/14454508.Time_will_not_allow_us_to_forget/

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

By 1941 the Nazi genocide had stepped up and [the] Auschwitz [main camp] became too small due to the sheer number of prisoners arriving from across occupied countries.

Two miles away is the site of Auschwitz-Birkenau – a camp with an area covering an area the size of 250 football pitches [425 acres].

The scale of Birkenau is overwhelming, and harrowingly it was built for the sole purpose of murdering Jews.

The iconic railway tracks and entrance dominate the bleak and desolate camp. It is difficult not to see the brick watch tower from any part of the site.

Rabbi Barry Marcus of London’s Central Synagogue revealed that only around 25 per cent of prisoners were taken to the camps to work, while 75 per cent were sent straight to the gas chambers.

End quote

So the stupid Nazis built a camp that was the size of 250 football fields, just for the purpose of gassing Jews.

The news article continues with this quote:

Begin quote

The first camp we visited was Auschwitz [main camp], one hour from Krakow airport.

Originally the [Auschwitz main camp] site was used as a barracks [for German soldiers] but when the Nazis invaded Poland the empty buildings became the first concentration camp in that area.

As we made our way under the ”Arbeit Macht Frei” sign at the gates [into the main camp], the persecution was revealed in greater detail.

The sign translates as ‘work makes you free’ – a sick joke by the Nazis, as nobody was supposed to leave the [main Auschwitz] camp alive.

More likely than not you have heard horrifying stories from survivors or other Holocaust educators but the true extent cannot be described without seeing it for yourself.

End quote

What do British students learn from their HET tours? They learn to worship Jews and to hate Germans.  “that’s all ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.” [Ode to a Grecian urn]

  1. “The scale of Birkenau is overwhelming, and harrowingly it was built for the sole purpose of murdering Jews.”

    Not everybody says that. According to witness Zygmund Gross, Birkenau was not an extermination camp at all. He says that Birkenau was just a place where the newcomers used to learn how to behave properly in the Auschwitz Stammlager (base-camp).

    I suppose that the Vernichtungslager is in the eye of the beholder…😉

    • Birkenau was for women and children a camp for people who who didn’t work.
      That’s why the camp was do big.

  2. “Rabbi Barry Marcus of London’s Central Synagogue revealed that only around 25 per cent of prisoners were taken to the camps to work, while 75 per cent were sent straight to the gas chambers.”

    The orthodox Holocaust narrative claims that it was 10% taken to the camps to work and 90%straight to the gas chambers. But since Holohoaxsters have no evidence for their claims, Rabbi Marcus of London is free to say whatever he wants on that. Nobody will blame him for departing from the groundless exterminationist figures, i suppose. A fable or another, it doesn’t matter after all…

  3. Like I believe that Birkenau was an extermination camp especially with all the barracks that were there to house the people, ridiculous! Why would they have all those barracks to house all these thousands of people if they were just going to kill them. Do You think the people were going to just sit there and wait to be killed knowing what was supposedly going on there.
    Just another tall tale to keep the people interested.

  4. The news article quotes a Rabbi Marcus, who accompanied the group of students to Auschwitz. He said;- “…before the war broke out there were more than three million Jews in Poland. Now there are less than 5,000.”

    Well, this may not be strictly a dishonest claim – but its certainly a disingenuous one. The truth is, no one really knows how many Jews were living in Poland in the summer of 1939. The last census taken was 8 years earlier in 1931. In addition, almost half of pre-war Poland (i.e;- the part where the majority of the Jews lived) was annexed by the Soviet Union – and so we have no idea how many Jews were deported or migrated voluntarily into the interior of Russia between October 1939 and the summer of 1941 when the Germans launched Operation Barbarossa.

    The Rabbi fails to mention that post-war Poland does not include those territories which the Soviets annexed in 1939. Neither does he state that immediately after the war, there were still 300,000 Jews living in the newly re-established Polish nation. Many of these folk left Poland themselves between 1946 and 1968.

    So, the Rabbi feels that he can come out quite brazenly and get these youngsters to believe that the Nazis exterminated over 3,000,000 Polish Jews, leaving just 5,000 of them still alive.

    • How accurate is the Jewish almanac?

      Comment by Tim — April 27, 2016 @ 3:12 pm

      • Yes, how accurate are any of these figures. When all is said and done, the “holocaust” seems to consist of two things;-

        1) An assertion that huge – but unverified – numbers of people were taken to death camps and forest clearings, and there systematically murdered.

        2) Uncorroborated, and extremely doubtful testimonies from former SS guards, plus legions of elderly people who are described as “survivors”.

        Comment by Talbot — April 27, 2016 @ 4:16 pm

  5. No. They’d also learn that Jews don’t understand numbers. Well they said 6 mill,then 4 and eventually it became 1.5 mill. They said this place was used exclusively for bumping Jews off. Nothing else. Okay if 25 % went to work that left 75% that were killed. 75 is not a 100%. If 25% were sent to work,then it wasn’t completely a death house. Has there ever been any WW2 era Jews,that have said in so many words,a lot of what you hear about the holo,is BS?

  6. Why would it require such a big place just to kill people? And all those FACTORIES (they’re still standing, and have been used by Poles ever since the war – today they’re defined as “not in the camp.” SOLE purpose of murdering Jews? What about all that RUBBER (BUNA)? The writer of the second article seems to think (incorrectly) that Auschwitz was in Germany BEFORE the German invasion of September 1, 1939. Wrong (again). None other than Jan Karski was stationed there to defend Poland (he didn’t, and neither did his comrades there).

  7. Because the lies are never challenged — even the most absurd lies — those telling them only seem to grow bolder.
