the Holocaust of the bullets

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust, World War II — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 7:33 am

Today, I am writing about the “Holocaust of Bullets” which refers to the mass shooting of Jews and others when Germany invaded the Soviet Union.

Normally, when a country goes to war, it means that people, in another country, get shot. But it is a crime when a war includes the shooting of Jews, who are a special category: God’s Chosen People. It is a crime to shoot Jews during a war.

The following quote is from the news article about the “Holocaust of Bullets”:

Begin quote:

The exhibition, which opened [in Berlin] late last month, confronts the mass murder of Jews and other minorities after the Nazis invaded the Soviet Union in June 1941. For all the attention paid to the past here, this display is the first in Germany to focus solely on those executions of more than two million people. Their bodies fell into pits, which were then covered and left as anonymous mass graves.

This “Holocaust of the bullets,” as it has come to be known, is deeply familiar to citizens of the former Soviet Union, particularly in Ukraine, Belarus, the Baltics and large parts of western Russia. The very oldest people in those places have vivid, direct memories; those who are middle-aged were raised on Soviet documentaries and war movies; and the young are exposed to modern displays of remembrance.

In Germany, however, the mass shootings are less known than the gas chambers and horrors of Auschwitz, Treblinka and other camps in Nazi-occupied Poland.

I first learned about the Holocaust of Bullets when I visited the Wannsee Museum near Berlin. I wrote about this on my website at

http://www.scrapbookpages.com/EasternGermany/Wannsee/Museum.html

On the day that I visited the Wannsee Museum in 1999, I had just visited the Memorial Site at the former Sachsenhausen concentration camp located in Oranienburg, a few miles away. The museum and displays at Sachsenhausen show the biased viewpoint of the Communist resistance fighters against the Nazis, while the Wannsee Museum reflects the viewpoint of the Jewish victims of the Holocaust. Both of these museums are careful to leave out all information that might be favorable to the Nazis.

The entire display in the Wannsee villa is relatively small and does not cover the Holocaust, nor the 12 years of the Nazi regime, in any great depth.

Section 5 in the Wannsee Museum is about the “Mass Executions” by the Nazis. Details are given about the shooting of the Jews by the Einsatzgruppen. There is a telex message on display, dated June 29, 1941 from Reinhard Heydrich to the commanders of the four Einsatzgruppen, which reads as follows:

Begin quote from telex message:

Efforts to carry out purges on the part of anti-Communist or anti-Jewish groups in the territories to be newly occupied must not be hampered. On the contrary, they are to be provoked although without leaving traces – if necessary intensified and carefully guided in the right direction. This must be done in such a way that these local ‘self defense groups’ will not be able to claim later on that they were given instructions or political assurances.

    Not any more – there is now an excellent exhibition on both topics.

    “The museum and displays at Sachsenhausen show the biased viewpoint of the Communist resistance fighters against the Nazis, while the Wannsee Museum reflects the viewpoint of the Jewish victims of the Holocaust. Both of these museums are careful to leave out all information that might be favorable to the Nazis.”

    Really? – why would you expect either of these museums to present information that might be favourable to the Nazis?

    Sachsenhausen was a Nazi concentration camp, and 56-58 Am Großen Wannsee was where the Nazi’s planned the final solution

    A little ridiculous to expect either site to be favourable to the Nazi’s isn’t it FG?

    “Normally, when a country goes to war, it means that people, in another country, get shot. But it is a crime when a war includes the shooting of Jews, who are a special category: God’s Chosen People. It is a crime to shoot Jews during a war.”

    It’s a crime to murder unarmed civilians (non-combatants) during wartime – doesn’t matter whether they are Jew’s or non-Jews. From your phrasing, I assume that you believe that it is not a crime to shoot Jews during wartime – am I correct FG?

    • If Jews were involved in treason’s activity…like covert partisan activity, killing German soldiers indiscriminately, you now stuff like that that deserved to be shot. That is exactly what happened to many of them that participated in that activity. Why would that be illegal? Because they were Jews?
      Anyone that was involved in that activity and caught were killed. Were innocent people caught up in the cross fire? I’m sure there were that is the collateral damage of war.
      By the way when the ghettos were being cleared out, that is exactly what happened to them there. They weren’t supposed to have weapons in the ghettos
      and many did so the Germans went in and cleared the troublemakers out….many Germans also suffered causalities, but in times of war these things happen.
      Would of been handled the same way today in the USA if the same things were going on. Maybe even worse.

      • And why were they in the ghettos in the first place Jim?

        Do 3 year old children count as partisans?

        This is how the Dirlewanger brigade cleared helped clear the Warsaw ghetto:

        Here is part of the Stroop report – http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/Holocaust/nowarsaw.html

        Read a real history book Jim, you might be able to present a credible coherent argument for a change – your anti-semitic rants are getting really boring now

        • In war sorry to say all the family suffers….no different than the Muslims being jailed in American camps/prisons even now. At least the Jews were all together.
          The Jews were put in the ghettos because most of them were enemies of the State. Communist sympathizers, people trying to upset the German war effort, which by the way was against the Hague convention…as is all underground subversive activity to undermine the Govt that is in charge was. Nothing unusual here.
          What do you do with all these people? You contain them in places called ghettos with all the family together… At least the family is together…
          I find it especially troublesome that the Jews were the only ones whose suffering counted….it was all about the Jews. I’m not anti-Semitic just hate Jews that lie. And even if I was, is it against the law to hate someone? You most likely hate me but you don’t see me crying…..

          • As I said Jim – read a real history book Jim, you might be able to present a credible coherent argument for a change – what you wrote above shows what a feeble understanding of the history of the ghettos you have.

            Did you even give me the courtesy of reading the links I posted?

          I went to see the site of the Warsaw ghetto in 1998. I wrote about the Warsaw Ghetto uprising on this blog post:

            Please answer the question FG

              In war time, the same rules should apply to Jews and non-Jews alike. If Jews are fighting as non-combatants during a war, it is O.K. to shoot them, just as it is O.K. to shoot non Jews.

              • 23.8.41 Jaeger Report 1,609 Jewish children – all these were illegal non-combatants?

                So do you condone the killing of Jewish Children FG?

          • I notice you haven’t written a post about Oskar Dirlewanger FG

  2. Great! Now show me where these millions of bodies are buried.

  3. The “Holocaust By Bullets” is a new propaganda program that was launched by a French Catholic priest named Desbois who produced a coffee table “Holocaust By Bullets” picture book and went on an international lecture tour to promote it. Whenever he was led to a grave site by villagers with knowledge of them rabbis showed up to demand that these graves not be disturbed. We are told it is against Jewish holy law to disturb a Jewish grave which puts a halt to any disinternment preventing a thorough forensic examination of these sites. It’s not even certain the bodies found in some of them are Jews. Debois’ book has some nice photos of old bullets and shell casings and other military hardware to lend legitimacy to the unproven premise that the Einsatzgruppen murdered 2 million Jews who lay buried in mass graves along the Eastern Front. We are shown a few photos in books and on museum walls and told we must accept this story on faith, or be fined, jailed and socially shamed if we don’t. The Holocaust Industry was recently exposed trying to pass off a tile fragment found buried at Treblinka as a gas chamber relic by a young revisionist named Eric Hunt. The isolence of the sham archeology used to prop this fib up was made transparent in this film: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=47rbRNSGQUs

  4. For either museum (in Germany) to display ANY material tending to exculpate the Nazis in any way would be a violation of German law. The museums would be closed and the curators put on trial.
