Precious items from the Monowitz Auschwitz III camp will be put on display soon in a new Museum, including the watch in the photo below.showimage-ashxThe photo above shows a precious pocket watch that was found at the Monowitz camp, also known as the Auschwitz III concentration camp.

Years ago, at the Nuremberg International Military Tribunal, the German SS was indicted as a criminal organization. The star witness for the defense, on the charges against the SS, was Sturmbannführer Georg Konrad Morgen, a judge who had been authorized by Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler to investigate the Nazi concentration camps for corruption and unauthorized murder.

Dr. Morgen found plenty of corruption at Auschwitz-Birkenau where the SS men were engaged in stealing from the warehouses that held the possessions, that had been confiscated from the prisoners, were stored.

In the course of his investigation in which he spoke to many of the prisoners, Dr. Morgen also claimed to have learned about the gassing of the Jews, not at the main Auschwitz camp, nor at Birkenau, but at Monowitz.

In his testimony, after the war, during the war crimes trials at Nuremberg, Dr. Morgen claimed that, although gas chambers existed at Monowitz, the SS was not involved in this crime.

Dr. Morgen testified that the gas chambers at Monowitz were not under the jurisdiction of the SS and that the order to build these gas chambers had come directly from Adolf Hitler, who had given this order to Christian Wirth of the Kripo (Criminal Police), who was not a member of the SS, according to Dr. Morgen.

Wirth had previously been in charge of the T-4 program in which severely disabled and retarded people had been gassed. Wirth later became the first commandant at the Belzec death camp, one of the three Aktion Reinhard camps under the jurisdiction of Odilo Globocnik.

On August 8, 1946, Dr. Morgen testified, as follows, at the Nuremberg IMT regarding the “extermination camp” at Monowitz:

Begin quote from Dr. Morgen’s testimony:

Then the trucks left. They did not go to the Auschwitz concentration camp, but in another direction, to the Monowitz extermination camp, which was some kilometers distant. This extermination camp consisted of a series of crematoria not recognizable as such from the outside. They could be mistaken for large bath installations. Even the detainees knew it. These crematoria were surrounded by barbed wire and were tended on the inside by the Jewish working groups already mentioned.


The Monowitz extermination camp was set apart from the concentration camp. It was situated in a vast industrial zone and was not recognizable as such. Chimneys smoked all across the horizon. The camp itself was guarded on the outside by a detachment of Balts, Estonians, Lithuanians, and by Ukrainians. The entire procedure was almost entirely in the hands of the detainees themselves, who were supervised only from time to time by a subordinate officer (Unterführer). The execution itself was carried out by another Unterführer who released the gas into that place.

End quote from Dr. Morgen’s testimony

Dr. Morgen’s testimony is included in IMT vol. XX, p. 550 – 551.

In a deposition, given to the British shortly after he was captured, Auschwitz Commandant Rudolf Hoess confessed that there was a gas chamber at the Buna Works at Monowitz. However, in an affidavit signed by Rudolf Hoess, which was entered into the proceedings of the Nuremberg IMT, the Buna Works was not mentioned as a location for a gas chamber.

The following excerpt is from the deposition originally given to the British by Hoess:

Begin quote

In 1941 the first intakes of Jews came from Slovakia and Upper Silesia. People unfit to work were gassed in a room of the crematorium in accordance with an order which Himmler gave me personally.

I was ordered to see Himmler in Berlin in June 1941 and he told me, approximately, the following:

The Fuhrer ordered the solution of the Jewish question in Europe. A few so called Vernichtungslager are existing in the General Goverment:

Belzec near Rawa Ruska Ost Polen

Treblinka near Malkinia on the River Bug

Wolzek near Lublin

The Buna Works

End quote from testimony

The Wolzek camp near Lublin was probably a reference to Sobibor which was one of the three Operation Reinhard camps in the General Government, as occupied Poland was called by the Nazis; the other two Operation Reinhard camps were Belzec and Treblinka.

The Buna Works was at Monowitz, which was in the Greater German Reich, not the General Government.

So what is the point of all this?

The point is that the Jews are a precious group of people, and every item, that was once touched by a Jew, is a precious item that should be shown in a Museum, where little children can be brought to worship the Jews.
