the Holocaust ovens

Filed under: Dachau, Germany, Holocaust, World War II — Tags: , — furtherglory @ 10:41 am

In a recent news article which you can read in full here  it was mentioned that “the Holocaust ovens were too small to kill 6 million Jews.”

The person who wrote this news article seems to think that Jews were killed, during the Holocaust, by being shoved into cremation ovens while still alive.

According to the official Holocaust story, which you must believe in 20 countries, if you don’t want to go to prison for 5 years or more, the Jews were killed in gas chambers and their dead bodies were then burned in ovens, like the ovens shown in my photos below.

According to Marcus J. Smith, a U.S. Army doctor, who wrote a book entitled “The Harrowing of Hell,” the chief of the crematorium crew at Dachau was Ludvik “a heavy, powerfully muscled Czech who has labored in the crematorium for a long time.”

Smith wrote that Ludvik sent him a letter in which he complained that his team of 10 people were not being treated as well as they had been by the Nazi SS men who had governed the Dachau camp.

Ludvik wrote in this letter: “We feel that after our liberation, at least the same standard of living should be maintained. But our position is worse than then as to food, drinks and tobacco.”

Smith wrote that, because the cremation efforts at Dachau were too slow, the bodies were buried by German civilians “at the American commander’s request.” The bodies were buried on a hill named Leitenberg.

You can read about the burial of the Dachau bodies, by German citizens, on the hill called Leitenberg, on my website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/DachauScrapbook/DachauTown/HistoricPlaces/Leitenberg01.html

The corpses of Dachau prisoners were taken on carts to the burial site on the hill called Leitenberg where the bodies were transferred to a bulldozed excavation, according to Smith.

He wrote that “Eventually 2,400 bodies were buried.” This would mean that there was a total of 3,110 bodies in the camp, including the bodies of prisoners who died between April 29th and May 6th after the liberation.

There were allegedly 2,310 bodies on the death train that arrived in the camp on April 27, 1945, which would have to be included in this total.

There were 2,226 prisoners who died in the month of May 1945 after the liberation of the camp; they were buried in a cemetery in the town of Dachau.

Leitenberg was consecrated as a Christian cemetery on December 16, 1949. Most of the prisoners in the Dachau concentration camp in the later years were Catholic. They had been arrested as “resistance fighters” who were fighting illegally during World War II.

Shown in the photo above, which I took in the middle of the Leitenberg cemetery, is a Christian cross, made of wood, which was designed by Klaus Backmund from Munich. On all four sides of the cross are panels which are engraved with likenesses of Christian martyrs.

On my visit to Leitenberg, I was the only person there, except for two men who were having sex in plain view. They didn’t seem to mind that I saw them. During the Nazi era, these men would have been put into a concentration camp.
