Today is the anniversary of the liberation of Dachau

Filed under: Germany — Tags: , — furtherglory @ 10:00 am

On my scrapbookpages.com website, I have a whole section about the Dachau concentration camp:  http://www.scrapbookpages.com/DachauScrapbook/KZDachau/index.html

In my web pages about Dachau, I have a section about the liberation of Dachau. I have personally spoken to Dan Dougherty, one of the liberators who lives near me. I wrote about what he said, regarding the liberation of Dachau, on this page of my website: http://www.scrapbookpages.com/DachauScrapbook/DachauLiberation/LiberationDay.html

The following quote is from my website:

Begin quote:

Liberation of Dachau, 29 April 1945

“Sunday, just after the noon meal, the air was unusually still. The big field outside the compound was deserted. Suddenly someone began running toward the gate at the other side of the field. Others followed. The word was shouted through the mass of gray, tired prisoners. Americans! That word repeated, yelled over the shoulders in throaty Polish, in Italian, in Russian, and Dutch and in the familiar ring of French. The first internee was shot down as he rushed toward the gate by the guard. Yet they kept running and shouting through eager lips and unbelieving eyes. Americans!” Dachau Liberated The Official Report by the U.S. Seventh Army

  1. That picture . Number one it looks like their at a bachelor party,but this is the one that got me. I thought all these inmates they freed,were afflicted with mal nutrition. Looks like a few are holding wine bottles (bottles of something). I heard that if you give food or drink to someone who is on the brink of starving to death ,I could possibly kill them. So what’s the story with these drunk bastards? Well every time I hear of the prisons being liberated,they always say,the inmates were just skin and bones(something like that). These fools don’t seem to be hurtin

    • The movie “Shutter Island” shows some scenes about Dachau. I wrote about this at https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2010/02/10/shutter-island-scene-shows-dachau-massacre/

    • The jubilant guy wearing the sweater, sitting front stage, and holding his bottle of booze high in the air, has just recently murdered someone by bashing him to death with a heavy wooden baton. But don’t worry about that folks – you just keep hating the Germans, worshipping the exterminated six million innocent souls, and ensuring that generous amounts of cash – from whatever source – keeps flowing into the hands of the Jews.

      • Clearly they weren’t starving then. I see he’s got a smoke hanging out of his mouth. Booze and smokes are the last thing I’m worried about,if I’m starving to death. I always wondered, how a abused,starving and knocking on deaths door inmate,can just get up and walk away from the prison. What about all the breakouts I hear about. Their in piss poor physical shape. How the hell are they gonna get the energy for a jail break? I’m the type of person who’ll hear both sides,then I’ll draw my own conclusion,but when I see pics like this,it’s damn hard to buy into the abuse went through. I’m not saying some of em weren’t abused. When pics like this surface,it’s hard to believe “all” the horror stories.

          I would like to thank Talbot for pointing out some facts about the liberation of Camp Dachau, which the Americans really screwed up, to use their usual expression. Bushyhead’s Unit used the wrong entrance to start with, (which goes due north to another exit/entrance about a mile away and does NOT go the the concentration camp) and they came immediately onto the SS-Hospital site on the left side of the road, which was located behind the Main Heating Plant , which is very rarely shown, except on aerial photography.
          Those inmates shown in that picture were most likely employed there and had to some degree the freedom of movement. As to their physical condition, there were two extremes, those that were needed for work had sufficient food and clothing, those that were sick and diseased would die.
          The picture was taken after the massacre on the embankment of the small creak that supplied water to the swimming pool.
          The SS-man killed with the shovel was most likely an orderly, if you look closely you see his creased trousers. He was unable to walk after a GI shot a Cal. .45 through his left foot.
          Typically this is neither shown here or after he was murdered and dumped on the heap of other dead bodies as can be seen if you scroll d further down on http://dachaukz.blogspot.co.nz/2011/08/dachau-kz-suffering-and-death.html
          Without being cynical, I hope that bunch settled all in the States, you are welcome to them.

          • If they want to migrate over to here,we’ve got the Aryan Brotherhood to welcome them. Well when one of our favorite Jews Earl Krugel got sent to the Phoenix federal pen for his crimes,the ABs rolled out the welcome matt. No more Earl (yeah. I’m really crying over that).. What is the “heating plant”? Is it slang for something or is it literally a heating plant? Hey there’s a lot of shit about this historical event that nobody ever mentions. A lot of the stuff they speak of,sometimes turns out to be BS. Getting facts about this,prove to be difficult. I found out,once I think I’ve been given the correct version of separate pieces in the overall picture,it ends up being BS. Oh well. The historians will continue telling the version that suits their propaganda best.

          • H.S. von Waldeck – I was reading the Dachau BlogSpot, and was struck by the following paragraph, entitled CRUELTIES;-

            “Since 1938 corporal punishments in Dachau were carried out in the courtyard of the new Bunker on seven specially installed stakes which had hooks driven into them and prisoners tied onto them and beatings carried out. Since 1940 when these stakes were no longer sufficient the location was changed towards[outside sic] the prison bath (Häftlingsbad) were a crossbar held up by two support posts was erected . The crossbar had a number of hooks with a spacings of about 40-50 cm between them. This way you could torture now around 50 people at a time. The duration of the punishment lasted for one hour, in some exceptional cases even longer. The prisoner had his hands tied with a chain on the back and after stepping onto a footstool an SS man attached the chain to a hook and would kick the stool from under his feet. After the first initial excruciating pain the victim would slowly faint and fall into unconsciousness. The SS men then punched the prisoner in the face, or by pouring cold water over him to regain consciousness. The unnatural position with the upper arm twisted at the back restricted breathing and could after two hours lead to death. Unfortunately after an hour of this type of torture in most cases this resulted in long-term paralyzes of the hands and the shoulder blades.”

            I seriously doubt that this kind of medieaval punishment was ever meted out to inmates. It sounds like the over-exaggerated, and unverified testimony of former prisoners who, after the war, had a vested interest in making conditions inside the camp appear as harsh and as cruel as possible.

            Two things struck me about this punishment;- 1) Would the SS administration really have approved such a torture that could easily lead to serious injury, and even death, to inmates who are purely there for protective detention or work. 2) The grizzly description of the two posts connected by a cross-bar that could suspend up to 50 men at a time, is “way-over the-top”. I suspect in reality, that this frame, with its hooks, was being used for hanging-up and airing inmates clothing while they took a bath inside the adjacent bath house.

              The entire blog is a translation from German, which I did as accurate as possible.
              Your assumption that it could be the testimony of former prisoners who, after the war, had a vested interest in making conditions inside the camp appear as harsh and as cruel as possible, could be possible

              • Ah – so it was it was a Polish author who originally wrote that Dachau Blog. That speaks volumes!.

                According to the Blog, traffic offenders could even be incarcerated in Dachau. That means, its quite possible that any Bavarian motorist could find himself hanging by his arms from a hook outside the bath-house – alongside 49 other miscreants – after he had driven into downtown Munich and parked inadvertently in a disabled bay outside Trudi’s Delicatessant. That’s certainly a draconian punishment! The poor driver probably only wanted to purchase some pastries and pretzels, but instead, found himself suffering the most extreme agony, and finishing up with permanently dislocated arms and shoulders!

                • I read the piece about Stanislav Zamecnik on your Dachau Scrapbook page, and although his account of the camp is heavily biased with a Polish perspective, he does write a thought-provoking paragraph in his book entitled “That was Dachau” (by Stanislav Zámecník);-

                  “The anti-Hitler movement inside Germany, which included German communists and Jehovah’s Witnesses, was the largest indigenous resistance movement of any country during the whole war. Only in Germany was an attempt made to assassinate their leader. Around 800,000 were sent to prison at one time or another for active resistance to the regime. While the western allies did all in their power to help other resistance movements, ie;- in France and the Netherlands, they did nothing to help or encourage the movement in Germany which in all probability could have ended the war sooner. But the Allies were intent on unconditional surrender and refused to make any deals at all with Germans. Accordingly the Allies viewed all Germans as bad, not only Nazis.”

                Stanislav Zámečník was a Czech National, arrested at the age of 17 and served after other camps in Dachau as an orderly in the prison infirmary. After the war he studied History in Prague and most likely wrote his memories about KZ Dachau during his studies as his Thesis. He died during 2011.

                Although I lived within the Camp for almost ten years, roaming around at my pleasure, I never saw the Hanging Poles as he describes, unless they had been removed what was then a restricted area that became the US Army Stockade after the War Crimes Tribunal Trils were completed

                  Begin quote:
                  The official history of Dachau is now a book entitled That was Dachau written by Stanislav Zamecnik and published in 2002. Zamecnik was a Polish political prisoner at Dachau from 1941 to 1945. His book has replaced the old Dachau history, written by Paul Berben, who was also a Dachau prisoner. Berben’s book told too many good things about Dachau; he did not write about the atrocities committed by the Germans, so that’s why his book had to be replaced.

                • H.S. von Waldeck. On a visit to some of these German camps in 2012, I do seem to recall seeing one of these “hanging poles” – but I can’t remember whether it was in Dachau or Sachsenhausen. These two KZ camps are so similar in design and layout, that they sort of merge together in my mind.

                  But I just wonder if this torturous punishment is really nothing more than a figment of former inmates vivid imaginations. It is quite possible that the present-day custodians of these camps latched-on to the survivors post-war stories and decided to create a piece of “macabre theatre” by erecting these timber poles with hooks in them in order to “wow” visitors ( like poor old me ) with fabricated cruelty and horror!

                  The pole hanging story is no longer told at Dachau. This turned out to be just another one of the lies told by the Soviets.

      The Americans liberated around 30,000 prisoners at Dachau. Most of the latter were in quite good health…

      But such pics were/are of no help to ‘explain’ to average civilians and soldiers who were/are the goods guys and the bad guys of WW2…

      …nor why the Zionists have/had to be allowed to steal Palestine from its legitimate owners.

      • The Canadian Jewish Chronicle article of June 1st, 1945 talks about two senior Jewish figures – one a surgeon – who originally came from Kaunus in Eastern Poland. But isn’t there something wrong here?. Kaunus lies even further to the east than the alleged “death camps” at Treblinka, Majdanek and Sobibor – let alone those at Auschwitz and Chelmno; so why are they still alive at Dachau in South West Germany at the very end of the war, when the official holocaust narrative claims that all the Jews from the Kaunus region were massacred into machine-gun pits somewhere inside occupied Soviet territory.

        In addition – the article claims that there were 2,539 Jews in Dachau at the end of the war. But again, according to holocaust orthodoxy they should have all been taken to the “death camps” in Poland and killed there long before the Americans arrived.

        • You wrote: “the article claims that there were 2,539 Jews in Dachau at the end of the war.”

          That is not correct. The following information is from my own website:

          According to the official report by the US Army, there were 31,432 survivors in the main Dachau camp, including 2,539 Jews who had been brought to the camp from the sub-camps just a few weeks before the liberators arrived. The Jewish prisoners from the five sub-camps of Mühldorf had been evacuated to the main camp, accompanied by Mühldorf Commandant Martin Gottfried Weiss. Prisoners from the sub-camps of Kaufering had also been brought to the main camp in the last weeks before the liberation of Dachau. Among the Jewish survivors were a few mothers with babies, including Miriam Rosenthal and her son Leslie, who had been born in one of the Kaufering sub-camps.

              Yes. It is remarkable that the Nazis allowed pregnant women to live and their babies to live. The women and the men were in separate barracks, but they managed somehow.

              • What I found remarkable,is they all looked to be in good shape. They had to have been getting medical care. You’ve written on here before that the survivors spoke of babies having their heads caved in by prison guards,once they get off the train. Okay. If they wanna say that happened,then why I ain’t they snatching these new borns up? Better yet,why didn’t they just bump off the expectant moms when they rolled up in the camp? A lot of these accountings don’t make sense. Too much contradiction.

              • Okay. Another question ( off the subject). Nobody liked Wagner as a human being. That’s what I’ve gathered from what I read. I went looking for something on Hans Zimmer and got sidetracked when I stumbled across Wagner. I read something in the Jew journal. They said in so many words,he was an asshole. The article went on to say,”his influence in music,poetry and theater is colossus”. You wrote sometime back that Wagner didn’t want Jew music because it’s rather melencholy. I listened to a few Jew composers and the shit was depressing. I listened to Wagner and there is a big difference. What’s the big stink about Wagner and the holo? It was an article I saw on a Jew site. I didn’t read it,because I figured the Jews would be one sided if Wagners music connected to the holo. So what exactly are they talking about when they connect his music to the holo?

                  I don’t believe that “nobody liked Wagner as a human being”. The German people worshiped Wagner; it was the Jews that hated Wagner because he was worshiped by the Germans.

                  One of my relatives is a music expert and he explained to me why Wagner’s music is so good.

Said something about him sleeping with other men’s wives if he had a hard time finishing up a piece of music (whatever that means). It said he lived in Zurich for about 11 years,because his politics wasn’t in line with Germany’s at the time. It said people didn’t like the man,but his influence on music is undeniable . That fella John Williams . He did the Star Wars and Jaws musical score to name a few. He was heavily influenced by Wagner. Lot of composers worship him

                  Jew-owned establishment hates Richard Wagner because of his anti-Semitic essay ‘Jewry/Jewishness in Music’ (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Das_Judenthum_in_der_Musik) and because he was Hitler’s favorite composer (together with Liszt). An original Wagner score was even destroyed along with Hitler in the Fuhrer’s bunker in 1945. Hitler often had Wagner’s music performed at Nazi party rallies. Wagner’s grandiose music is now regarded by Jew-owned establishment as Nazi music. Woody Allen once said: “Every time I listen to Wagner, I get the urge to invade Poland.” (Jewish humor, ha ha ha)

                  Tim wrote: “What’s the big stink about Wagner and the holo?”

                  Winifred Wagner was the wife of Richard Wagner’s son Siegfried. Winifred Wagner ran the Bayreuth [Wagner] Music Festival – a great Nazi celebration during the Nazi era – after her husband’s death in 1930 until 1945. During WW2, the Bayreuth Festival was even turned over to the Nazi Party, which sponsored Wagner operas for wounded soldiers returning from the front. Winifred Wagner was a close personal friend and supporter of Hitler, and she and Hitler maintained a regular correspondence (unfortunately never released by the Wagner family).

It said something about the protesters were trying to block access to the AFD congress. One of the demonstrators shouted,”no rights for nazi propaganda”. It said Von Storch (I think that’s the name) made the statement,”Islam is incompatible with the German constitution”. It went on to say this group wants to build a better relationship with Russia . So who is this group?

                • The AFD is ‘Alternative Für Deutschland,’ a right-wing anti-EU political party founded 3 years ago in Germany. The million Arab migrants greeted by the Establishment currently ruling over Germany last year probably strengthened the AFD, what scares the so-called anti-fascist groups (in fact, anti-German Reds) in Germany.

Is there even gonna be a Germany left. What about the German people themselves. Are they trying to push the Germans to the point of extinction ? Maybe I should say,”the German race as we know it”. It just seems like everything is getting out of hand over there . Seems like they want to wipe out the Germans

                  No, I’m saying the arrival of so many migrants in so little time is good for far-right parties because most natives are usually scared by such events and so vote en masse for far-right parties.

                  Tim wrote: “Are they trying to push the Germans to the point of extinction ?”

                  Yes, they are. They are trying to push the entire White race to the point of extinction. Very low birthrates and the mass arrival of foreigners is the equation of racial extinction. Mathematical exactitude. Two eyes and a few brain cells in working order are enough to realize that. Many Europeans have now accepted this idea and just respond ‘What’s wrong with that? Are you some kind of racist nazi-who-wants-to-kill-six-million-jews or something?’. Pathetic sight…

I don’t have problems with Telemundo or Univision being shown in America,but Al Jezzera is another story. Far as I’m concerned,they should be called “the terrorist network”. Good ol Al Gore is helping them achieve their goals .

If someone is being referred to as “the butcher”,wouldn’t it make sense to look into their exploits? They did it with Roschmann. They nicknamed him,”butcher of Riga ” however were gonna let this SOB skate for what he did to Dresden ? I’m not a sexist,but tell those gals if they wanna make a point,do it with their shirts on. I ain’t gonna hear word one they have to say when they topless. They think going topless,their message will be seen with no problem. Problem with them being topless, who gives a damn about their message.
