A Jewish visitor to Sachsenhausen completely misunderstands the history of the camp

You can read, in this news article, about how a young Jewish woman was completely mislead about Sachsenhausen:

I have a section on my website where you can read all about Sachsenhausen:

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

I walked into a concentration camp in Germany – and I walked out. A Jewish woman leaving a Nazi camp defies the odds and realities of millions of human beings.

“If you are done with the alt-right you filthy kike, then fuck off to Israel or just get into the oven. Problem solved.” A man wrote me those words, which I read before coming face to face with the crematorium at a Nazi concentration camp in Germany, the very ovens where bodies of millions of Jews were incinerated.

I found myself unexpectedly terrorized, shaken to my core. Never did I imagine visiting a concentration camp. Despite being born to a Jewish mother, I had zero desire and felt no family connection to the Holocaust. But there I found myself in Sachsenhausen: standing trapped within barbed wire and walls, fighting the most intense bone chill of my life, losing hope in humanity and in myself.

On the heels of hearing a German parliamentarian negate that anti-Semitism is on the rise in Europe or worldwide, a cab driver affirm that Jews were responsible for 9/11, and a former neo-Nazi quote an Austrian military officer in saying his radical political beliefs would have been welcome had they won the war, I felt paralyzed – staring into the ovens in search of answers, of lessons, of direction.

The following quote is from my website:

Station Z was the nickname that the SS gave to the execution site at Sachsenhausen. Beginning in the fall of 1939, Station Z was the site where prisoners who had been condemned to death in a Nazi court were executed by a firing squad.

According to the memoirs of Rudolf Höss, who was on the staff at Sachsenhausen for a time, anyone who was convicted of war-time sabotage or enemy activity against the state was sent to the nearest concentration camp for execution, and the first such execution after the war started in 1939 was carried out at Sachsenhausen when a Communist, who had refused to perform his assigned air raid duties in an aircraft factory, was shot.

Staton Z is also the location of an alleged gas chamber that was allegedly first put into operation in 1943, presumably to gas Russian POWs since there were no Jews in the camp at that time.

At a Military Tribunal conducted by the Soviet Union in October 1947, Camp Commandant Anton Kaindl confessed to the gassing of prisoners, on his own authority, at Sachsenhausen. This was an obvious lie.

The gas chamber and the execution site were both inside the Industrial Yard, where the factories were located; they were separated from the prison enclosure by a brick wall.

The name Station Z was intended to be a joke, according to the Memorial Site, because the entrance to the camp was through Building A, which was the gate house, and Station Z was the exit from the camp for those who had been executed.

  1. The corpse factory from WW1 is revealed to be fake news according to the fake news BBC ….the Holocaust is not fake news of course ; as the report emphasises in the last paragraph

    • The Holocaust is not “fake” news just outright LIES!

    • BBC news states: “these false stories “encouraged later disbelief when early reports circulated about the Holocaust under Hitler”.”

      An understandable disbelief. When one mixes the WW1 fake news of corpse factories with the WW1 fake news of gas chambers, one almost gets the Soviet ‘report’ on Auschwitz. Add to your mixture the WW1 fake news of mutilations in Belgium and turn it into mutilating medical experiments and the resemblance is almost perfect… 😉

  2. Mislead? I didn’t major in journalism, didn’t major in English, nor any other language (I’m a technocrat), but I still read attentively (and am now a proofreader/editor).

    Are you/we getting tired of me? I work (exclusively) for our side.

      I DID major in Journalism and I worked on a newspaper where my first job was checking news stories for errors in grammar and spelling.
