This blog post was posted at 4:01 pm, January 30th where I am, but I choose the time because it is now 4:01 am January 31st in Germany.

Please take 9 minutes to listen to this very sad, but also very beautiful song.  Think about what happened on this sad day.

Brunhilde Pomsel, another person who should have been aware of the ‘Holocaust’ (given her job) but who knew nothing about the use of homicidal gas chambers in Auschwitz and Treblinka until she saw pics of a health disaster in Belsen and Dachau. The Holohoax conspiracy theory is so laughable and nonsensical…

You can read more about Brunhilde on Wikipedia:

Strangely, David Irving does not mention her in his book about Hitler’s War. She couldn’t have been that famous if David Irving didn’t  even bother to mention her.

How to begin your Holocaust tour — first stop Dachau

Filed under: Dachau, Germany, Holocaust, Uncategorized — Tags: , — furtherglory @ 8:19 am

The Holocaust is a vast subject. Where should you begin? My recommendation is that you start with a tour of Dachau, one of the first concentration camps, if not THE first.

My photo below shows the Arbeit macht Frei gate into the Dachau concentration camp.


I took the photo below on my first visit to Dachau in 1998. At that time, this was the tourist entrance into the former camp. You could not enter through the “Arbeit macht Frei gate” at that time.


The former Dachau camp is now inside the town of Dachau, which is very close to the city of Munich. There is an airport just outside the city of Munich, and you can take a bus from the airport, into the city of Munich, and then take a bus to Dachau.

You could stay in a hotel in Dachau, where you could start your Holocaust tour by going to the former Dachau camp, which is open to visitors every day of the week.

The site of the former Dachau camp now has a nice visitor’s center where you can start your Holocaust tour. Hitler would be turning over in his grave if he knew about this ultra modern building. Hitler once dreamed of being an architect.

I have a large section about Dachau on my website at

This section on my website  is all about the Dachau gas chamber:

Please prepare yourself before going inside the Dachau gas chamber. You don’t want to laugh and get arrested for being a Holocaust denier. Yes, Germany has strict laws against Holocaust denial. If you get arrested, don’t come crying to me.
