I have just read a news article which claims that Auschwitz was originally owned by Preston Bush:

Was “Preston Bush” an ancestor of former president George Bush?  I don’t think so!

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

George Bush’s grandfather was Prescott Bush. I previously blogged about this at https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2016/10/23/auschwitz-was-originally-owned-by-prescot-bush-who-knew/

    Why the ‘Holocaust’ myth must be crushed:

    • We voted like African Americans, Latinos and Muslims, not like other Whites. Because we’re not Whites. We are a consanguineous Negro-Euro-Asian parasite (Inbred mongrels, what a prowess !!) vaguely resembling our White host for mimesis purposes.

    • Perhaps more germane is this part: Because we remember. — exactly what do they remember? — of course they remember the ‘Holocaust’, which was perpetrated by Whites — therefore they must vote against the interests of Whites, in order to make sure there is not another ‘Holocaust’ — QED — oh and if in the process they get others to hate Whites too then that is also not a bad thing.

  2. No, Auschwtiz was originally a selection of polish barracks located near the city that is currently called Oswiecim. The base was originally polish, and not owed by bush.

      You are correct that Auschwitz was not owned by Bush. The news article has been taken down and replaced by a new page.

    • No, D-H. The camp was originally built & owned by the Germans or Austrians (as a transit camp for laborers during WW1) and then used by the Polish authorities (as a military base during the interwar period).

      • “No, D-H. The camp was originally built & owned by the Germans or Austrians ”

        No the camp was made from a abandoned polish base near the mentioned town. It’s rather simple.

        • It’s rather simple to see that you don’t know what you’re talking about…

          What later became the Auschwitz concentration camp, was built by the Central Powers during WW1 for the dispatch of laborers. No surprise since Auschwitz was a major railway hub in Europe.

            The Auschwitz I camp was located in a former Polish Army garrison.

            • “…located in a former Polish Army garrison,” itself located where a migrant worker camp used to be during WW1.

              May I quote your own words?

              [quote] When railroad lines were 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.

              In 1919, Poland became an independent country again and Auschwitz became a Polish town called Oswiecim. The former migrant worker camp was used as a garrison by the Polish Army. [/quote]

      I clicked on the link and it worked, but it went to a page that was not the original page in the link. The article has been taken down. Maybe it was because I pointed out the mistakes in the article.
