If you don’t know the difference between Rudolph Hess and Rudolf Hoess, don’t be writing news articles

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 7:58 pm

In a recent news article, which you can read in full here, Rudolf Hess is mistakenly named as the Commandant of the Auschwitz camp.

The name of the Commandant was Rudolf Hoess. Rudolf Hess was Hitler’s deputy and and his close friend.

The following quote is from the news article:

German prosecutors have alleged that Helma M., who served as a radio operator for camp commander Rudolph Hess in 1944, received details of incoming shipments of Jews to be murdered at the Nazi camp.

The newspaper caption on the photo above is this:

This is not the railway track LEADING TO THE INFAMOUS GATE OF DEATH.  This photo actually shows the tracks inside the camp, not the tracks leading to the camp.

My photo below shows the track LEADING INTO the camp.

With regard to Rudolf Hess, here is the background on him, from my website:

It was in the Max Josef room of the Hörhammer Inn that a group of Dachau residents met in November 1922 to form the Bund Oberland which became the Dachau Nazi party in 1929. The Nazi party held regular meetings at the Inn.

The KPD, as the Communist party was called, also held meetings here and the two parties had frequent clashes. The Communists would attempt to break up meetings by the Nazis and prevent them from speaking.

One of the Nazis who was preventing from speaking at a meeting at the Hörhammerbräu was Rudolf Hess, a resident of the nearby town of Augsburg.

Hess became famous during World War II when he took off in his own plane from an airfield in Augsburg and flew to Scotland with the intention of negotiating with the British to end the war in 1940. His peace attempt failed and he spent the rest of the war in prison in England, then the rest of his life in Spandau prison in Berlin after being convicted as a war criminal at Nuremberg.

The following quote is also from the news article:

Begin quote

Despite camp duty rosters that reportedly confirm she was in Hess’s service from April to July 1944, Helma M. escaped prosecution at the end of the war because no evidence that she personally harmed any Auschwitz inmates during her time at the camp was ever presented to German courts.

In recent years however, Germany’s laws regarding the prosecution of former Nazis has shifted, and now defines suspects’ involvement in death camps as sufficient grounds for culpability in Nazi war crimes, even without proof of committing a specific crime.

As a result, a wave of new investigations into former Nazi guards, medics and other camp workers has led to a handful of trials against a dwindling number of aging suspects.

In 2015, Jens Rommel, Germany’s top Nazi hunter, charged Helma M. with complicity in the murders of 260,000 people in the Auschwitz death camp.

      There must exist a yiddish word for “mock trials intended to secure further testimonial ‘evidence’ of extravagant claims but no incarceration of the alleged perpetrators” (because of a health reasons in this case). Probably the same word as the yiddish word for ‘bamboozlement.’ 😉

      Whatever, their present need to collect additional testimonial ‘evidence’ of the “Holocaust” speaks volumes about the probative value of testimonial ‘evidence’ itself. Why the patent eagerness to collect more testimonies about the “Holocaust” if the already-numerous testimonies about that had indeed proved anything but public gullibility as often claimed? They can pile BS up to the sky or beyond if they want to; I’m afraid they won’t succeed in turning that shit into anything other than a very big pile of shit despite their efforts and posturing…

  3. The character named above, who is going to prosecute Helma M., is someone called Jens Rommel, and he is described as “Germany’s Top Nazi Hunter” ( is this not a splendid title to hold? ) I’m quite certain that he is held in the highest esteem throughout Germany and beyond.

    But I tried to find out more about this gentleman in order to find out why a 43 year old guy, who himself had never experienced the terrible upheavals of WW2, should dedicate his career to the pursuit of very elderly men and women who were caught up in events that were way beyond their capacity to influence – let alone change. I thought at first he was related to the legendary Field Marshal – Erwin Rommel, and wanted to make some kind of gesture of atonement for the alleged transgressions of his late relative. But no – his name has no link with that family, and is actually quite forceful in distancing himself from any such connection.

    But the news website “” gives some details of what makes Jens Rommel tick. It says;-

    ” The Ravensburger prosecutor Jens Rommel is the new head of the Central Office for the Investigation of National Socialist Crimes in Ludwigsburg. This was announced by Minister of Justice of Baden-Wurttemberg Rainer Stickelberger ( SPD ) on Tuesday in Stuttgart.’ Even 70 years after the end of World War II crimes can be cleared from the Nazi tyranny and tracked thanks to the meticulous work still “, Stickelberger said.

    ” Since it began its work on 1 December 1958, the Central Office launched preliminary investigations against 7569 former concentration camp guards. Twelve judicial inquiries are currently pending. In future, the site also work faster than research and information center, as alleged perpetrators are increasingly already died. ”

    ” The new head has formerly worked among others with the Federal Attorney General and latterly as deputy Director of Public Prosecutions in Ravensburg.’ During an almost three year tenure as Managing observers to the European Union in Brussels Jens Rommel also has his great diplomatic skills and his excellent knowledge of foreign languages ​​proved “, Stickelberger said.

    ” Jens Rommel attaches importance to the statement ’no relation by marriage’ with Erwin Rommel – the German field marshal in the era of National Socialism “.

    Thus we can readily see that Mr Rommel is not a selfless, fearless hunter for justice against Nazis at all. No, he is merely a careerist lawyer, a bureaucrat, who is appointed into his position by those above him. He carries out his orders from them, and in return he will be rewarded handsomely for his sturdy endeavours to achieve convictions against frail old people. In addition, he will certainly gain recognition and fame, at least inside Germany, and this will not harm his own career advancement in any or shape or form whatsoever.

    So – my advice to you Mr Rommel, is to cease persecuting the elderly, and go and do something worthwhile with your life instead – like selling ice cream and soda to the kiddies at the beach!

  4. I enjoy reading this especially after hearing Jim having issues debunking the Hoess memoirs XD

    This person and Jim are two of a kind! They would get along greatly due to their lack of knowledge of history!

    • Are you Anonymous #2? There is another “Anonymous” who is commenting here, so it is confusing. You should give yourself a unique name, so you are not confused with another Anonymous who is commenting here.
