If you’ve ever wondered why Hitler killed the Jews, this home movie explains it

Filed under: Holocaust, movies — Tags: , — furtherglory @ 9:02 am

This news article, about a new short film, will help you to understand why Hitler killed the Jews:

http://forward.com/culture/349794/an-auschwitz-home-movie-scored-by-eric-clapton/

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

I’d always avoided Auschwitz,” Philippe Mora says near the beginning of his new documentary, “Three Days in Auschwitz.” “I was like, ‘Who wants to go to Auschwitz?’”

Mora’s question is, at least on the surface, perfectly understandable. After all, with any number of exotic and enticing locations currently available for our visiting or vacationing pleasure, a site [Auschwitz-Birkenau] where at least 1.1 million people (90% of them Jewish) were gassed, shot, starved and worked to death by the Nazis hardly conforms to anyone’s idea of an appealing destination.

[He’s talking about Auschwitz-Birkenau, not Auschwitz, the main camp.]

Of course, one visits former concentration camps not to “get away from it all,” but to bear witness to one of the darkest chapters in human history. And for Mora, a French-born Australian film director and artist whose extensive filmography includes such notable credits as “Mad Dog Morgan,” “Death of a Soldier” and the second and third installments of the “Howling” horror franchise, the emotional, psychological and historical pull of Auschwitz eventually proved too compelling to ignore.

Born four years after World War II ended, Mora learned much later that eight members of his family had been killed at Auschwitz. Seeking to come to terms with their deaths, in 2010 he finally traveled to Poland’s Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum for the first time — a visit that inspired several returns and eventually led to the making of “Three Days in Auschwitz,” which was released in select U.S. theaters and on DVD and Video On Demand on September 9.

Why were there “quarantine barracks” in a death camp? Did the Nazis want to make sure that none of the prisoners died of typhus or other diseases? Did they want to make sure that the prisoners were perfectly healthy when they were gassed to death?

  1. FG:
    “If there were actual proved history, there would be no deniers.”

    There are people out there that believe that the Soviets didn’t murder the Polish officers at Katyn.
    There are people out there that believe the US didn’t drop atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. At one point there existed a website that said the Japanese didn’t bomb Pearl Harbor, the British did.
    People believe all sorts of crazy crap.

    “Deniers do not deny “proved history.”

    Yet, they can’t prove where the Jews went if the Germans didn’t murder them. Don’t you and other deniers out there think this is important? After all, if you have alternate theory on what happened to the Jews during WW II, isn’t it incumbent on you to prove it?

    “Deniers are not mentally ill and delusional.”

    Deniers fall under three categories (as far as I can tell):
    1) German/Nazi apologists
    2) Anti-Semites (1 & 2 are closely connected)
    3) Conspiracy theorists who will believe anything

    3 may not necessarily be anti-Semitic but once they buy into denier mythology they generally become so.

  2. You mentioned the Jews not being gassed but were then “worked” to death”…..seems to me like plenty of them survived to tell their HoloHoax lies later on and collect their HoloHoax welfare checks.
    So maybe you can first show us one person who was witnessed being gassed, and one who was worked to death.
    Then you can show us those babies who were thrown into the fire pits alive. Interesting how several thousand babies were born in the camps when the official HoloHoax story says everyone under the age of 15 were killed upon arrival.
    Of course the official Jewsish version of the HoloHoax changes as the moon, so next week there will be another one.

    Oh, by the way, here is my latest interview of another person censored by the HoloHoax lobby.
    Gotta love those Jews….considering they look at revisionist as liars they sure do their best trying to stop us.
    If the truth stands on it’s on merit why all the fuss?

    My interview with Monika Schaefer the latest in the revisionist purge.

    • You wrote: “seems to me like plenty of them survived to tell their HoloHoax lies later on and collect their HoloHoax welfare checks.”

      I have often wondered why Holocaust survivors live so long. One would think that having a meager diet with very little meat would cause a person to be so weakened that they would die at a young age. In fact, it was just the opposite. I seems that a meager diet of potatoes and very little meat causes a person to live longer.

      That is why I eat a lot of potatoes and other vegetables, with very little meat. I am very healthy, at the age of 83.

    • “You mentioned the Jews not being gassed but were then “worked” to death”…..”

      A bit literal on my part.
      Those not gassed were to work until they couldn’t work anymore.

      “seems to me like plenty of them survived to tell their HoloHoax lies later on and collect their HoloHoax welfare checks.”

      How many? How much?
      Proof, now. Whatever you have.

      “So maybe you can first show us one person who was witnessed being gassed, and one who was worked to death.”

      Yes, because the Nazis took intimate photographs of their crimes.

      Oh, but wait!!!!
      I do have pictures of gassed victims!!!!!

      http://ww2today.com/4-september-1944-secret-images-taken-by-auschwitz-sonderkommando

      “Then you can show us those babies who were thrown into the fire pits alive.”

      That description seems to only come from Eli Wiesel…someone that Yeager and FG claim was never in the camp.

      So, which is it? He was there and saw it or he was never in the camp so his descriptions are irrelevant?

      “Interesting how several thousand babies were born in the camps when the official HoloHoax story says everyone under the age of 15 were killed upon arrival.”

      So? Nazi policy was flexible. Himmler called a halt to the killings in the Fall of 1944. Do records exist of babies being born before then?

      As far as the 15-year-old issue….the selectors did not have birth certificates so larger/taller children younger than 15 could survive selection….as I’ve stated about a million times.

      “Of course the official Jewsish version of the HoloHoax changes as the moon, so next week there will be another one.”

      Well, one thing never changes, me asking you this:
      If the Nazis didn’t kill the Jews, where did they go?
      You’ll need to provide proof of destination.

      • Jeff….LOL….Really now did you really look at those pictures? I didn’t see anyone being gassed but some frolicking through the woods….
        And the fire pits? And what does that prove? Unbelievable that you would think that these pics would prove anything.

          Deniers have a special type of glasses they put on when confronted by evidence that their heroes committed atrocities.
          Those glasses help them sleep at night.

            True Believers, like yourself, have a special type of glasses that they put on when confronted with the truth about what actually happened in the camps. How many Holocaust survivor books have you read? I have many books, written by survivors, which tell some truth about what actually happened when they were in a camp.

              I know exactly what happened in Auschwitz-Birkenau. Those not gassed, worked. See, there’s the truth. I have no problem with that.

              “How many Holocaust survivor books have you read?”

              Exactly zero. I don’t have to.

              “I have many books, written by survivors, which tell some truth about what actually happened when they were in a camp.”

              The beatings, the starvation?

                My answer to your comment:

                So you have never been to any of the camps, and you have never read any survivor books. I have read many, many survivor books and I have been to most of the former camps. I have been to both Dachau and Auschwitz several times.

                I have been to the US Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC and to Holocaust museums in Germany. I have been studying the Holocaust since 1997.

            How the Jews do things……They are bullies and censors, and you sadly defend them. Consider AIPAC….
            AIPAC hates ANY criticism even if it is true.

  3. “Why were there “quarantine barracks” in a death camp? Did the Nazis want to make sure that none of the prisoners died of typhus or other diseases? Did they want to make sure that the prisoners were perfectly healthy when they were gassed to death?”

    Because those not gassed were supposed to work. You don’t want them dropping dead of disease when the expectation is to work them to death. Also, diseases killed the camp SS, this quarantine protected them and their families, not to mention the surrounding countryside from epidemics.

    Which, of course, you already know.

    Comment by Jeff K. — September 16, 2016 @ 9:52 am

    • But why the need for a quarantine barracks at all? Why not execute every diseased prisoner from the moment they show a single hint of a symptom and then cremate them? Having a quarantine barracks requires medical staff and supplies, food, beds, etc. This put Germans at risk of disease too, and it used up supplies that were becoming invaluable as the war progressed. It would’ve saved time, money and effort to exterminate the sick instead of housing them in barracks.

      If there was any type of extermination policy, every diseased prisoner would’ve been immediately executed to prevent the risk of further contamination of healthy prisoners and German staff. Bu no… the Germans treated the sick instead. That’s why Otto Frank was in an infirmary being treated for typhus and not “exterminated.” Do you honestly believe the Germans were trying to nurse Frank back to health to then just work him to death?

      Of course you don’t, but you’ll never admit it.

      By the way, the photographs you previously provided in no way prove homicidal gassing occurred. You prove dead bodies were burned (which no one has ever denied). Well done! You can’t prove how they died, though. If you claim they were gassed, the onus is on you to prove they were.

      I look forward to your evidence.

        I have written several blog posts about Anne Frank:
        https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/tag/ottp-frank/

        The following quote is from one of my blog posts about Anne Frank:

        Begin quote: The whole family was sent to the infamous Auschwitz-Birkenau camp, after their hiding place was discovered.

        Soon after he arrived at Auschwitz-Birkenau, Otto Frank had himself put into the camp hospital, claiming that he was too sick to work. He stayed in the hospital until the camp was liberated by Soviet soldiers on January 27, 1945.

        I blogged about Otto Frank, and his stay in the camp hospital, on this previous blog post: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2014/06/01/how-does-the-story-of-anne-frank-prove-the-holocaust/

        Begin quote from blog post, cited above:

        Later, Otto Frank apparently felt guilty because he did not advise the rest of his family to voluntarily put themselves into the hospital at Auschwitz-Birkenau so that they would not have to work, and would get better food, as he did, because he was supposedly sick.

        After less than two months in the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp, Anne and her sister Margot were transferred to the Bergen Belsen exchange camp in Germany in October 1944. We know that the train carrying Anne and Margot to Bergen-Belsen was a “sick transport” because the Red Cross was asked to monitor the train along the way.

        Otto Frank was not being treated for typhus. He did not have typhus. Otto Frank asked the Nazis to put him into a hospital because he did not want to work. He worked for only a couple of days before he decided that he did not want to work.

        The prisoners were put into quarantine the moment that they arrived at Auschwitz. At that point, it was not yet known whether these incoming prisons were infected with some disease, or not. If this had not been done, one infected person could have infected the whole camp.

        Comment by furtherglory — September 17, 2016 @ 7:24 am

        • ” The prisoners were put into quarantine the moment that they arrived at Auschwitz. ”

          There is a famous photo image from the Auschwitz Album, taken in the early summer of 1944, which shows Hungarian women and children who have just disembarked from a transport at the Ramp and are heading off towards the family camp – which is in the totally opposite direction from the “quarantine camp”.

          So was there a quarantine section inside the family camp itself ? – or are these women and children heading towards the Sauna to change their clothing; be showered; and then sent on to the quarantine camp ? It could be, however, that the quarantine camp was only fully in use when there were typhus epidemics in Birkenau, or when certain transports arrived from places where typhus and other diseases were rife.

          Maybe the arrivals from Hungary were deemed to be “risk-free” and were allowed to enter the camp directly.

        That’s not the purpose of a quarantine barrack. As FG pointed out, new arrivals went to the quarantine barrack in order to see if they had diseases. There is an incubation period for diseases. There are quarantines for many things, the Nazis did not invent the concept. There was a quarantine for Ellis Island, for example.

        “If there was any type of extermination policy, every diseased prisoner would’ve been immediately executed to prevent the risk of further contamination of healthy prisoners and German staff. Bu no… the Germans treated the sick instead. That’s why Otto Frank was in an infirmary being treated for typhus and not “exterminated.” Do you honestly believe the Germans were trying to nurse Frank back to health to then just work him to death?”

        There were infirmaries at the Action Reinhard Camps where prisoners were given a brief time to get better. These were valuable sources of labor, they were given a chance to recover.

        “Of course you don’t, but you’ll never admit it.”

        I realize this is the first time we’ve corresponded. Never make assumptions on what I will say or admit to.

        “By the way, the photographs you previously provided in no way prove homicidal gassing occurred. You prove dead bodies were burned (which no one has ever denied). Well done! You can’t prove how they died, though. If you claim they were gassed, the onus is on you to prove they were.”

        Well, we have naked women walking and the their bodies on the ground. What do you think happened to them?

        “I look forward to your evidence.”

        Later. I’m at an amusement park with my family.

          You are assuming that the photos of naked women walking are photos of the same women whose bodies were on the ground, and that these women had been killed. The prisoners who took a shower undressed before they went into the shower room, so this accounts for the naked women walking. The bodies on the ground were the bodies of dead women. Their clothing was removed after they died; the clothing was disinfected and used again.

            Except that the men who took those photographs specifically stated that the pictures were of women sent to the gas chambers. They risked their lives to document this crime.
