Auschwitz was originally owned by Prescot Bush — who knew?

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust — Tags: , — furtherglory @ 9:11 am

This morning, I was shocked to learn, from a news article, that Auschwitz was originally owned by Prescot Bush.The article doesn’t say that this man was the grandfather of George Bush, the former President of the United States. Maybe there was more than one person with this exact same name, except for the extra letter t in one of the names.

The article also refers to this man as Preston Bush.

You can read about George Prescott Bush here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prescott_Bush

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote:

Originally owned by Preston Bush who used the site to make a fortune from Polish slave labour, Auschwitz was sold to the Nazi regime who established it as the largest extermination camp in Europe in 1940. Today the museum and memorial serve to commemorate the victims of the Holocaust so the world never forgets the atrocities of World War II.

End quote

The article continues with this quote:

Auschwitz was the largest Nazi German Concentration and Death camp in the years 1940-1945. The Nazis deported at least 1,300,000 people to Auschwitz and carried out 1.5 million executions of Jews, Gypsies, Soviets and political prisoners. Approximately, 90 percent of the victims were Jews. The SS (Schutzstaffel) murdered the majority of them in the Gas chambers. Just about 10 kms from Krakow city, Auschwitz Concentration Camp attracts many tourists, who want to visit the place and pay homage to the hapless victims during the Holocaust.  Visitors hear eye-opening accounts of the prisoners and victims that were brought here explore the blocks where they lived and the gas chambers where the majority of them died. Silently they go around, some unable to control their tears, and offer prayers for the departed souls and return with heavy hearts.

End quote

The article then continues with this quote:

Begin quote

The Nazis deported at least 1,300,000 people to Auschwitz and carried out 1.5 million executions…

End quote

You have to hand it to the Nazis — they could take 1.3 million people and carry out 1.5 million executions.  Only the Germans could do something like that, but after all, they are the smartest people in the world.

I could quote the rest of this news article, but I don’t want any of my readers to die laughing.

Ovens at Auschwitz

The photo above shows the cremation ovens in the main Auschwitz camp.The black objects in front of the ovens are trolleys that were used to shove the bodies inside the ovens.

I took photos of the crematorium at Auschwitz when I visited the camp in 1998. Note that the dull brown trolleys have been upgraded to shiny black ones.

I was the only tourist there, so I could take lots of photos, which you an see on my website at

  1. One thing we all can be assured about as to the FACTS, nobody was part of a homicidal gassing in this place as an extermination practice of the National Socialist. You can dream all you want, you can call all your false lying witnesses, you can THINK people were gassed there in that little bomb shelter, coal bin, YOU HAVE NO PROOF…….NOTHING indicates that little building was EVER set up for a gassing of anyone. No heaters, no fans, no NOTHING……To keep the lie going that this was a building for mass murder is nothing but blatant “BEARING FALSE WITNESS”…….say your prayers before God.

    • Irving has admitted to gassings in the Bunkers.

      Comment by Denying-History — October 24, 2016 @ 4:44 am

      • You wrote: “Irving has admitted to gassings in the Bunkers.”

        What buildings are you calling the “bunkers”?

        Comment by furtherglory — October 24, 2016 @ 6:14 am

        • The buildings which have been labeled the bunkers… If you cannot understand this FG then you cannot understand Auschuwitz.

          Comment by Denying-History — October 24, 2016 @ 6:52 am

      • Irving bases his claim for gassings in these bunkers from an unverified, pencil-written memoir, alleged to have been composed by the former Deputy Commandant of Auschwitz – Hans Aumeier – while being held as a prisoner in British custody after the war.

        But let Wikipedia continue the story;-

        ” On 11 June 1945 Aumeier was arrested at Terningmoen camp as a result of the capture by the British MI6 of Gestapo files. He was still in full SS uniform and admitted almost immediately his name and rank. He was handed over to United States intelligence officers at Akershus Prison for interrogation in August 1945. In 1946, he was extradited to Poland to face trial as a war criminal along with thirty-nine other members of the SS staff of Auschwitz-Birkenau, before the Supreme National Tribunal in Kraków. The trial lasted from 25 November to 16 December 1947, and Aumeier stated that if he was found guilty and sentenced to death, he would “die as a ‘Sündenbock’ (scapegoat) for Germany”. He told the court that he had never killed anyone at Auschwitz and neither had any of his men and denied knowledge of the gas chambers.[3] On 22 December Aumeier was sentenced to death, and he was hanged on 28 January 1948. ”

        Oh dear, there does seems to be some discrepancy between Irving’s claims of an unsworn “sort of confession” given in writing to his interrogators; and a declaration made publicly under oath at an open tribunal. I’m pretty confident that what Aumeier told the court in Poland is much more credible that this dubious piece of writing that Irving relies upon!

        The website called ARC says this about the Aumeier document;-

        ” Strangely, his [Aumeier’s] statements kept in the British Public Records Office were not unearthed until 1992 by David Irving, who did not immediately make his findings public. ”

        The word “strangely” is indeed an appropriate one for us to use here, because it is strange on three levels; 1) Who placed this document in the British Public Records Office, and why was it not handed over to the Americans ( and then the Poles ) for interrogation purposes immediately after Aumeier had been transferred into their custody. This would have been a crucial piece of incriminating testimony at a trial in which the Brits were not involved at all. 2) Why did such a document remain hidden for all those years. After all, if it is authentic, then this statement written by such an important figure as the Auschwitz Deputy Commandant would have provided the world with confirmation of the early series of gassings at Birkenau. 3) If Irving found this document in 1992, then why has he remained silent for all these years, and was prepared to go into court to dispute with Lipstadt’s lawyers, historians and experts, about gassings at Auschwitz!

        I’m afraid, on this issue, Irving’s credibility is in some doubt !

        • Lol it’s not a memoir, it’s an interrogation.

          As for unverified, please show how it’s not.

          Comment by Denying-History — October 24, 2016 @ 6:55 am

        • You wrote: “Irving bases his claim for gassings in these bunkers from an unverified, pencil-written memoir, alleged to have been composed by the former Deputy Commandant of Auschwitz – Hans Aumeier – while being held as a prisoner in British custody after the war.”

          This is what you call “grabbing at straws.” Hans Aumeier was what you call “small potatoes”.

          SS-Hauptsturmführer Hans Aumeier was tried by a Polish court in Krakow for war crimes committed when he was an assistant to Rudolf Hoess, the Commandant of Auschwitz. He was convicted and hanged on January 28, 1945″

          Aumeier was lying in order to save himself, but it didn’t work.

          Comment by furtherglory — October 24, 2016 @ 8:00 am

        • At this juncture, let us take a look at the testimonies give by the Commandant, and the Deputy Commandant of Auschwitz.

          Rudolf Hoess – the Commandant – claimed that he was responsible for killing 4 million people at the camp, and says that many of them were exterminated in gas chambers.

          Hans Aumeier – the Deputy Commandant – claimed that neither he, nor his men, killed any one at all, and denied any gassings took place.

          Now, to my way of thinking, there does some to be an enormous discrepancy between the evidence of these two gentleman. One of them claims 4 million murdered victims; and the other……well – none at all.

          Please help us out of difficulties, all you holohoaxers out there. Whose right ?

            On this blog post, I wrote about how Rudolf Hoess was tortured to make him confess

            Comment by furtherglory — October 24, 2016 @ 8:17 am

            • Hoess was tortured it is said, and for three days he was “incoherent”..I guess we would call that torture.
              Go see the movie Goya’s Ghost and see what torture will make you say….are you a monkey yet? Lol..
              Hoess testimony said a lot of unproven things, you know, like things you’d say if one was tortured….
              It’s usually not used anymore except by ignorant holocaust researchers and dopes……

              Comment by rizolitv — October 24, 2016 @ 9:42 am

              • Hoess was tortured via beatings… He was also deprived of sleep as well. This in no way would cause him to write the his memoir though, as he had nothing to gain from it, and Hoess has only confirmed what he has admitted to, and corrected areas he felt were not accurate.

                Comment by Denying-History — October 24, 2016 @ 12:24 pm

          • Tal, you have no idea what in the hell you are talking about.

            Hoess never said he killed 4 million people, Hoess testified he killed 2.5 million but this was Eichmanns figures (according to him) and they were off. Read Commandant of Auschwitz (the memoir he wrote after being sentenced to death and had nothing to gain form writing it) and he admits this number to be to high. His own figure is on max 1.5 million could have been killed but that the number lies under 1.2 million.

            as for Hans Aumeier, so what? Broad has already corroborated with Hoess. This point is irrelevant.

            “Now, to my way of thinking, there does some to be an enormous discrepancy between the evidence of these two gentleman. One of them claims 4 million murdered victims; and the other……well – none at all.”

            Now that I think about it. You have only looked at two testimonies. Good Job Tal! You have broken a record and ignored everyone else.

            “Please help us out of difficulties, all you holohoaxers out there. Whose right ?”

            How about you learn how witness corroboration works, then we can talk.

            Comment by Denying-History — October 24, 2016 @ 12:22 pm

            • Anybody reading your explanation wouldn’t have a clue of what you are talking about either. Even if Rudolf Hoess did change his totals according to the prevailing circumstances in which he found himself – his figures are way, way at odds with his Deputy Commander who came out with a total of zero!

              You threw Eichmann’s name into the mix – but I don’t take any notice of his testimony. He swore on oath that they were using Russian submarine engines at Treblinka – and he also witnessed Jewish blood geysers somewhere-or-other on his travels.

              And is this Broad character the same Perry Broad who claimed that the Disinfectors at Auschwitz were opening hazardous poisonous cans of Zyklon B with hammers and chisels ? If so – then I’m afraid this guy’s testimony is no good to either man nor beast.

              Now listen here Den – would it not be a good idea before we accept all these totals from a dubious menagerie of witnesses, that you holocaust proponents commence a search for the remains of all these human beings that are alleged to have perished in the Auschwitz-Birkenau complex. Because, after 71 years, all that we have been able to verify, are approximately 700 bodies who were found inside the two camps when the Soviets arrived.

              Where do all the other remains lie buried ? Can you point us in the direction of the official Soviet or Polish report that details the search for human remains that took place in the years immediately following the end of WW2.

              Comment by Talbot — October 24, 2016 @ 2:20 pm

              • Tal, Hoess’s confessed every time and wrote a memoir of the events when he had nothing to gain… This makes him a more important. Broad as well wrote a memoir as well and retracted nothing.

                I didn’t throw in Eichmann that is just where Hoess claimed the 2.5 million figure was from Eichmann. Pelt notes this in his expert report.

                Comment by Denying-History — October 24, 2016 @ 3:13 pm

              • The mass graves at Auschwits were disposed of. Read pelts report or the good old days. You will learn the mass graves disposed of via cremation means.

                Comment by Denying-History — October 24, 2016 @ 3:14 pm

                • So what you are saying is; that there were no searches carried out for human remains at Auschwitz. And consequently no one can tell us where any humans remains lie buried today, or how and when the alleged mass graves were destroyed.

                  All you offer, is a book entitled “The Good Old Days” – ( whatever that means ) and a report prepared by Robert Jan Van Pelt – a man who was not present at Auschwitz during the post-war years, and thus has no first hand experience of the matter in hand, but relies solely on untested witness statements that were supplied to him by the Auschwitz State Memorial Museum.

                  Comment by Talbot — October 24, 2016 @ 3:58 pm

                • The human remains were cremated… There were some digs but nothing major like Treblinka or Majdanek to my knowledge. This is irrelevant though.

                  Comment by Denying-History — October 24, 2016 @ 4:39 pm

                • Tal… I would also like to comment… If you don’t know the book then you haven’t even looked into the event at all. Its impossible to not see a quoted testimony from it.

                • The USHMM figure is 15 to 20 million, which is way to high.

    • You wrote: “the Poles were the ones [who] owned Auschwitz first.”

      The town of Auschwitz was built by the Germans in the year 1270. The word Auschwitz is a German word. If the Poles had built the town, they would have given it a Polish name. The town is now known by its Polish name, and no Germans live there anymore.
      I have written several blog posts about the town:

        Comment by Denying-History — October 23, 2016 @ 11:43 am

        • You wrote: “we are talking about the [main Auschwitz] camp.”

          The town of Auschwitz was the location of the main railroad yard in Europe. Auschwitz was the European equivalent of North Platte, Nebraska, which is the largest railroad hub in America.

          When railroad lines were first built in the 19th century, the little town of Auschwitz, at the junction of three empires, became the crossroads of Europe. There were 44 train lines coming into Auschwitz, making it at one time a larger railroad hub than Penn Station in New York City.

          It was because Auschwitz was such an important railroad junction that a camp for migrant workers was built in a suburb of the town in 1916; seasonal farm workers from all over Europe were sent from Auschwitz to the large German estates. The migrant worker camp, with its beautiful brick barracks buildings, was the place that eventually became the Auschwitz I concentration camp.

                • I went to Wikipedia and looked up Oświęcim, which is now the name of the town formerly known as Auschwitz.

                  Strangely, Wikipedia does not mention a “polish military installation in the town”.

                  The historiography that exists on a college campus is kosher. Real history is not taught in college, where only the Jewish version of history is taught. That’s why my blog gets millions of hits, in countries around the world.

                  As I have quoted for your enough times, Auschwitz 1 was created from polish military barracks.

                • The holocaust is generally taught in two classes from what I have been told 10th grade history, but you learn about the American internment camps and Gulag at the same time… So what you learn is so diluted that it really shouldn’t be considered a holocaust course.

                  And I have heard its common to read night by Elie in 9th grade English… I didn’t have to read it though. Years later I did end up reading it and found the account disappointing and inaccurate to Auschwitz 3.

                  As far as I know, there was no camp that was named Auschwitz 3. It was called Monowitz. As far as Elie Wiesel is concerned, he finally admitted that he was never in any camp, and his books were pure fiction. He was highly praised for telling the truth.

                • Auschwitz 3 was MONOWITZ… Its really not hard to understand. And Elie never made such an admission. Please provide evidence of this admission, besides Yeagers email which doesn’t say what you claim.

          When I visited the town of Auschwitz, I had a hard time communicating with the Polish people, none of whom could speak English, nor German. I was told by one of the Polish citizens that there was store owner who could speak German, and that I could talk to her. I went to the store and talked with his woman, who told me that there were no Germans living in the town. Maybe a few Germans have come back to the town, but why would anyone want to live in a place where they are hated, and might even be killed because they are German?

      Auschwitz I was a Polish military barracks prior to the Germans converting it into a KL; Jan Karski was posted there in 1939 when war with Germany was threatening. But the facility was built by the regional Galician authorities [then part of Austro-Hungarian empire] as a labour exchange for the 300,000+ Russian and Galician seasonal migrant workers who headed to the Oswiecim—which was situated where the German, Austro-Hungarian, and Russian empires met—hoping to be selected by agents representing farms in Germany and Austria that required labourers.

      The facility was planned in 1914, completed in 1918, and consisted of 27 brick dormitories which housed 3000 men and 90 wooden barracks for 9000 men; it had a chapel, theatre, hospital, post-office, telegraph station, and police station.

      Due to the re-drawing of borders after WWI, Oswiecim was no longer a border town and the labour exchange was no longer required.

        I wrote essentially the same thing on my website. The following quote is from my scrapbookpages.com website:
        Begin quote

        Konzentrationslager Auschwitz, the main camp, was originally opened on June 14, 1940, as just another concentration camp, in the former Polish military garrison in Zazole, a district of the town of Auschwitz. Thirty German criminals, who were prisoners in the Sachsenhausen concentration camp, were brought to Auschwitz in May 1940 to convert the garrison into a prison camp. Throughout its existence, the Nazis called Auschwitz a concentration camp, not an extermination camp or Vernichtungslager. The term “extermination camp” was coined by the Allies and initially, it applied to all the Nazi camps.

  4. No link to the article quoted. Auschwitz was a military barracks before it was a concentration camp. Who would have enslaved Poles to work as slave laborers there in order for “Preston” Bush to make a fortune off of them before Hitler and his henchmen?

      The camp had been built originally for migratory farm laborers on their way to seasonal work on large German estates. This farm labor exchange was built in a district of the town of Auschwitz, called Zazole, in 1916.

      Auschwitz was then in Galicia, a province in the Austro-Hungarian sector of the former country of Poland, which had been divided between the Russians, Austrians and Prussians (Germans) in 1795. At the time that the concentration camp was opened in Auschwitz, this area had been incorporated into the Greater German Reich; it was not part of German-occupied Poland.

          Close, but no cigar.

          Auschwitz was selected to be the site of the first concentration camp in what is now Poland because of its location near a major railroad junction and because there was already a military camp there with usable buildings. The camp had been built originally for migratory farm laborers on their way to seasonal work on large German estates. This farm labor exchange was built in a district of the town of Auschwitz, called Zazole, in 1916. Auschwitz was then in Galicia, a province in the Austro-Hungarian sector of the former country of Poland, which had been divided between the Russians, Austrians and Prussians (Germans) in 1795.

          • Auschwitz 1 was constructed from abandon polish barracks… So I’m not sure what you are talking about.

          • Auschwitz Burkinau might be what you mean by was created as a farm… This isn’t really accurate though as Auschwitz was originally planned to be the Aryan model city, but this plan was never fully realized.

          • “Auschwitz I, the main camp, was the first camp established near Oswiecim. Construction began in April 1940 in an abandoned Polish army barracks in a suburb of the city.”
