How students today completely misunderstand the Holocaust

My 1998 photo of kitchen building in Auschwitz main camp

Notice that my 1998 photo above shows the same scene as the student photo, but the student did not mention the antique sentry box that is located near the camp kitchens.

This quote from the news article is what the student wrote about her visit to the kitchen buildings:

Begin quote

Of the many barracks we visited, one stands out in my mind — the kitchen house where Jewish musicians would play for the amusement of the SS men. I could easily imagine the musicians, their trembling lips on a trumpet, their skeletal fingers dancing a bow on the violin, creating music, a solitary remnant of beauty in a living hell. “

End quote

Nice writing, but the trip to the main Auschwitz camp, which is a historic place, was completely lost on this student because all she could think about was how the Jews were murdered by the Nazis. She didn’t even notice that there were several kitchen buildings. The shutters on these buildings are now closed so that students can’t see the huge stoves and the pots that were used to cook the food for the prisoners.

The following quote is also from the news article, cited above:

Begin quote

Life has a knack for continuously shaping our perspectives, for changing how we view the world through exposure to new experiences and ideas. These changes can be gradual or arrive in a sudden rush of mind-blowing revelation, as happened when my life was changed by my visit to Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp.

A history buff, I had been looking forward to this day for months. It was summer last year. I was taking a fun school course in Europe with a great class. At first, this was just another destination, albeit a momentous one.

But as soon as we entered [the main Auschwitz camp], my mood changed entirely. It was like a heavy weight was pressing down on me as I glimpsed the rows of barracks, barbed wire, the silent streets. I was haunted by the amount of misery, anguish and suffering that had occurred there, a sentiment reflected in the faces of those around me. Minutes earlier, everyone was chatting and enjoying themselves, even being a bit callous about what we were about to encounter.

End quote

The news article continues on with this quote from the young student:

ArbeitGate.jpg

Begin quote

But as soon as we set eyes on the gate [into the main Auschwitz camp], an unprompted hush fell on us all. 

The arch above the gate bore the words “Arbeit Macht Frei — Work will set you free.” In retrospect, it seems fitting that such a place should have a twisted and deformed motto. After all, who would create such a place as Auschwitz except those utterly twisted and deformed of mind?

End quote

The truth is that, with their “utterly twisted and deformed mind[s],” the Auschwitz main camp was originally built by the Germans as a camp for migrant workers. From Auschwitz, the workers could get on a train and travel to any place in Europe. Auschwitz was literally a major “cross road” of Europe.

The news article continues with another quote, written by this young student:

Begin quote

It is astounding how meticulous the Nazis were. Nothing was wasted or left to chance, not even the geographical position of Auschwitz. Away in Poland, the Nazis could continue to hide the truth of the concentration camps from the rest of the world. [Auschwitz was far from hidden. It was a major railroad hub in Europe.]

Families were ripped apart, screaming children were torn from their mother’s arms. With a wave of his hand, an SS officer would decide a person’s fate: an instant agonizing death or the slow torture of the labour camps. But the deportees knew nothing of this. Instead, they saw each line split, people headed for the camp or the “shower room” to be “disinfected.” 

Those sent to the showers suffered a grim fate. Through the vents and shower valves, a gas was released causing a slow agonizing death. It took up to 15 minutes for a person to die.

End quote

What kind of “shower valves” can have Zyklon-B pellets flowing through them? Did this young student mean “shower valves” like the ones in the Dachau gas chamber, which is shown in my photo below:

My photo of the last remaining shower head at Dachau, which is now gone

The student did not include a photo of the gas chamber in the main Auschwitz camp. That could be because photographs are strictly forbidden in the alleged gas chamber now.  I took the photo below on a trip to Auschwitz in 2005.

My 2005 photo of the gas chamber in the main Auschwitz camp

That’s all she wrote, and she rubbed that out.

    When I visited Auschwitz in May 2015, taking photographs was most definitely still permitted in every area of the camp, including in the Auschwitz I ‘gas chamber’ because I took quite a few myself, and the ‘guide’ said and did nothing.

  2. Whoops! TBR is The Basilik Press Report not the The Barnes Review. (“Backstory on Robert Trumbell Crowley CIA and Gregory Douglas from The Barnes Review circa 2014 : http://www.tbrnews.org/?p=897“).

  3. Gregory Douglas… BELIEVE IT, OR NOT!

    …”The Bloodstone report is presented here (a facsimile of the cover page can be found in the Appendix) along with an extensive compendium of figures relating to Auschwitz from 1940, when the camp opened as a prisoner of war establishment, until December of 1944 when the camp was being disbanded and its worker/inmates transferred to the relative safety of the west.

    The statistics are taken directly from the official German records and are to be found on thousands of pages of microfilmed material that came from former Soviet Archives.

    It should be noted that until recently, the Bloodstone report was highly classified and not available for research and the release by the Russians of the main Concentration Camp records in 1990 was termed a “serious error” by Jewish activist groups. The latter do not dispute the authenticity or accuracy of the files but question the motives and the wisdom of the Russian archivists who facilitated their public and unrestricted release.”

    • CIA. What a joke. I don’t believe what they say,no further than I can throw them. If their name is connected to anything. The character from MASH. Colonel Flagg. He’s the perfect representation of the CIA. When communism went poof in east Germany ,CIA found out the way the rest of us did,CNN.

  4. The Holohoax scam has been exposed the only thing they can do now is stop people from looking into the nooks and crannys of the camps.
    These nooks and crannys would raise too many questions for the inquisitive mind…..of course most people today would rather have the lies told to them…… the lies are more interesting.
    The question that I would like answered by the HoloHuxsters that read this is…..why do so may “eyewitnesses” lie?
    When cross examined the truth will come out…..yes the truth has come out and people with open minds are seeing it.
    The real haters are those that continue to believe the lies.

  5. I bought antiquities while in Persia. No value, brass containers that had been made over a period of 200 years. The oldest had a clear picture engraved. The newest had lines that could be understood only if you new what the original was like.

    Same with the stories about the jewish holocaust.

    Comment by Dr Kim — May 30, 2016 @ 12:17 pm

    • Hey Doc. Brass containers were made over 200 years ago,or they’ve been made that way for 200 years

      Comment by Tim — May 30, 2016 @ 12:48 pm

      • Very similar cylindrical boxes were made over let’s say 100 or 200 years. I don’t have to be precise here as I only wanted to say that once there was an original version that was copied again and again.
        Eventually one could no longer recognise
        the original. Actually the same with Persian seals.

        Comment by Dr Kim — May 30, 2016 @ 1:51 pm

        • Hey Doc you know anything about Egyptian antiquities ? There’s a website called museumsurplus.com. They have some Ushatis for sale on there. A couple of them I’m thinking about getting. They all got a price tag of $695.00. 665 to 524 BC is the age listed. They have a 2 sided eye of Horus amulet for sale. It’s $350.00. It’s
          850 to 500 BC. Know anything about Egyptian artifacts ? I just started collecting them a few years back. I’m mostly into it,for the art work itself. I got a framed peice of mummy wrap a few months back. It’s from the 2nd century AD to the 1st century AD. I’ve heard where people have bought real Egyptian mummies. I heard at one time mummies were so plentiful,that back in 20’s they were grinding them up to powder form and being sold for medicinal purpose. Wish I was alive back then. I could’ve gotten one for a song

          • I mainly know about Persian antiquities but of course see the other things passing by in auctions. Ushabtis are plentiful. Try catawiki auctions in Europe.

            Comment by Dr Kim — May 31, 2016 @ 1:16 am

            • Hey Doc. You can do absentee bidding with these folks. I do that with superior livestock. They have to take my bids over the phone,since I don’t have high speed internet. It’s not practical for me to go to a production sale,that’s 1,500 to 2,000 miles away from me,if there’s only one animal I’m interested in. I get a buyers number and letter of reference from my bank and on the day of the auction I call In my bid to a Superior Livestock Rep. and they place my bid. Does the auction house you spoke of,work that way?

  6. “Life has a knack for continually changing our perspective”. Who the f–k is this bitch supposed to be? Hemingway ? “Their skeletal fingers dancing a bow on the violin”. Look out Lawrence. This bitch is gonna make you poetry look like shit. Shit. Me and my wife went over to Lafayette for the weekend one time. We went to an old southern plantation. We saw the slave quarters at the plantation. Why couldn’t I come up with something like that after I saw the slave housing? Oops. My bad. Slaves weren’t Jews . Like the song goes. ” Meek and obedient,shall follow the leader,down well trodden corridors,into the valley of steel”.

From Auschwitz, the workers could get on a train and travel to any place in Europe. Auschwitz was literally a major “cross road” of Europe.”

    I’m not sure, are you joking with the above statement?
    Auschwitz I was a concentration camp for Poles deemed by the Germans to be a threat.

    “showers suffered a grim fate. Through the vents and shower valves, a gas was released causing a slow agonizing death. It took up to 15 minutes for a person to die.”

    It’s really sad that this girl misunderstood. She needs to read some good books on Auschwitz. A great one to begin with is Laurence Rees’ book, Auschwitz, A New History.

              You have said so much in your numerous comments on my blog. You have written more comments than any other person who reads my blog — and that is just under one of your names. Rizoli is just one person; it would be hard for anyone to address everything that you have said.

              • Well, if it helps, I didn’t say anything about the fingernail scratches.

                Comment by Jeff K. — May 30, 2016 @ 5:07 pm

                • I have written about the fingernail scratches on several blog posts, including this blog post:
                  https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2013/03/26/proof-that-the-dying-victims-inside-the-auschwitz-gas-chamber-scratched-the-walls-with-their-fingernails/

                  The scratches are a major part of the Holocaust. There is no need for you to avoid this subject.

                  Comment by furtherglory — May 30, 2016 @ 5:15 pm

                • A major part? Fingernail scratches on a wall in Krema I? Why is that a major part?

                  Comment by Jeff K. — May 30, 2016 @ 5:17 pm

                • The fingernail scratches on the wall of the Krema I gas chamber are Weltbekannt. Every person in every country in the world knows that the dying victims scratched the walls of the gas chamber in the main Auschwitz camp.

                  Comment by furtherglory — May 30, 2016 @ 5:21 pm

                • To be honest I think the fingernail scratches are irrelevant.
                  The original gas chamber was not used for very long. It’s not as important as the other gas chambers.

                  Comment by Jeff K. — May 30, 2016 @ 5:44 pm

                • I’ve always thought they’d try to play the claw marks for all they’re worth. Think about it. They’d have damn good dramatic value. What’s not to love about it . Those claw marks can pull major heart strings. People are standing in the room,looking at the claw marks. They think back to when the Jews were in there making the marks. It would get damned intense for some of the tourist. My favorite is still the star of Dave scratched on the bottom of the wall in one pic. The tour guide could play the tourist like a fiddle when it comes to pointing out the star. I can hear the tour guide now. ” Focus your attention on the star of Dave scratched into the wall. As the Jews were dying,they were brave till the end. I salute you little champs.” That’s the reason I think the claw marks,are extremely relative to the overall picture .

                • Didn’t you say something a couple days back,those folks fessed up and said the claw marks were a hoax of sorts

        • “possessions of a Jewish doctor who was held in Westerbork and Theresienstadt. He does not mention ‘gassings’ at all.”

          Is the assumption that all of the ghettos and camps had gas chambers?
          Wolf Murmelstein was held at Terezin. I know he’s mentioned a possible gas
          chamber.
          Also, how do you know this person didn’t mention gas chambers?
          Have you read these documents?

    • Jeff wrote: “I’m not sure, are you joking with the above statement? Auschwitz I was a concentration camp for Poles deemed by the Germans to be a threat.”

      Furtherglory was talking about WW1 (i.e. when the Germans built the Auschwitz main camp as a dispatching center for migrant workers) while you’re talking about WW2.

        I misread it.

        • Glad I could help to clarify that.
