My final thoughts about Majdanek

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 12:54 pm

Here are my final thoughts about Majdanek, a former Nazi death camp in Poland:

Imagine you are driving down I-5, a super highway in California, and there is heavy traffic, with no place to pull over and stop. Imagine that someone says to you “Look over there and you will see a gas chamber building where the Nazis gassed Jews.”

You look out the window and you see two identical buildings, so you say “Which one?” Your guide tells you that the gas chamber is the building on the left, and that the identical building on the right was used for delousing the clothing of the prisoners.

You say: “Can I see the delousing building first?” and your guide says “No, you may not. You may not go anywhere near the delousing building and you cannot peek into the windows because they are covered.”

At this point, you say to yourself: “Something wrong!”

Then imagine that you drive a few more feet down this major highway, and your tour guide says “Look over there, that two-story white house is where the Majdanek Commandant lived with his wife and three young daughters.”

You are very upset! You say “Do you mean to say that three young girls were living in a house that was literally a stone’s throw from a homicidal gas chamber?”

Your tour guide says “Don’t worry, the wife and daughters  were not isolated. This highway goes into the city of Lublin (pronounced Loo-Bleen), which is only a few miles away. Lublin is a major city.”

You say, “But the three children must have been very unhappy because they were cooped up in the house, and could not play outside.”

Your guide says, “No, the girls played outside every day; their yard was very large and they had a doll house and a swing set.”

You are appalled! Little girls playing outside, while, a few yards away, Jews are marching into gas chambers to be killed.

That’s when you begin to understand that the Nazis really were the worst people in the world.

End of Story

  1. Ok our resident HoloHuxster DH….was it diesel or petrol gas? You say petrol, Gerstein says diesel….. who should I believe? I guess a punk college 20 something knows more than the history books…..of course Gerstein wasn’t telling the truth in the first place but that is another story.
    You don’t even accept his HoloHoax story….

    From Bergs article on it….of course you won’t acknowledge this because the facts kick you ass…

    The text which follows is a portion of the Gerstein statement as given in the English translation of Harvest of Hate by Leon Poliakov. Aside from a rather brazen “error” on the part of Poliakov, namely the claim that 700 to 800 bodies were crowded into 93 square meters instead of only 25 square meters (which is the way the original documents actually read) it is probably no worse a translation than any of the other versions which can be found. (fn. 6)

    SS men pushed the men into the chambers. “Fill it up,” Wirth ordered, 700-800 people in 93 [sic] square meters. The doors closed. Then I understood the reason for the “Heckenholt” sign. Heckenholt was the driver of the Diesel, whose exhaust was to kill these poor unfortunates. SS Unterscharführer Heckenholt tried to start the motor. It wouldn’t start! Captain Wirth came up. You could see he was afraid because I was there to see the disaster. Yes, I saw everything and waited. My stopwatch clocked it all: 50 minutes, 70 minutes, and the Diesel still would not start! The men were waiting in the gas chambers. You could hear them weeping “as though in a synagogue,” said Professor Pfannenstiel, his eyes glued to the window in the wooden door. Captain Wirth, furious, struck with his whip the Ukrainian who helped Heckenholt – The Diesel started up after 2 hours and 49 minutes, by my stopwatch. Twenty-five minutes passed. You could see through the window that many were already dead, for an electric light illuminated the interior of the room. All were dead after thirty-two minutes! Jewish workers on the other side opened the wooden doors. They had been promised their lives in return for doing this horrible work, plus a small percentage of the money and valuables collected. The men were still standing, like columns of stone, with no room to fall or lean. Even in death you could tell the families, all holding hands. It was difficult to separate them while emptying the room for the next batch. The bodies were tossed out, blue, wet with sweat and urine, the legs smeared with excrement and menstrual blood. (fn. 7)

    So much wrong with this testimony…but again thats for another time.

  2. “That’s when you begin to understand that the Nazis really were the worst people in the world.”

    Or it is when you realise that the whole story is a fraud, from top to bottom, back to front, and you have been lied to your whole life.
    All in order to keep a certain group in power, by enabling them to claim victim status for something that never occurred in the manner claimed.

      Pure sarcasm on furtherglory’s part. Probably…

  3. FG… It’s a fair distance from the road…

    • You wrote: “It’s a fair distance from the road.”

      I was there; you weren’t. The gas chamber was very close to the road. I suspect that the road has changed and is now far away from the gas chamber. I think that the road might have been changed because it was a hazard to have drivers looking over at the former camp. There might have been accidents caused by people looking out the window, not at the road.

      • No…. It really isn’t. The Highway hasn’t changed ether.

        Comment by Denying-History — October 30, 2016 @ 4:17 pm

    • If the yellow line represents the road, then the road has definitely changed; it has been moved a considerable distance.

      • From what I can see from the aerial photos dating from those years, the main road hasn’t changed. Den is more-or-less correct about the yellow line following the road alignment. But there is no doubt that civilians driving, cycling and walking along the highway would have been able to see in the distance the alleged gas chambers with victims lining up outside. This is confirmed by the street camera on Google Earth which clearly picks out these structures from the highway.
