Remembering my trip to the Natzweiler camp

Filed under: Uncategorized — furtherglory @ 1:50 pm

Way back in the dim past, I took a trip to the former Natzweiler camp.  As I recall, it was very difficult to get there. There was no bus nor train that went there. I had to hire a private driver to take me there and return to pick me up.

After I returned from my trip, I did a website about the camp, which you can see at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/Natzweiler/index.html

 

Natzweiler gas chamber

I was hoping to see the famous Natzweiler gas chamber, but no one is allowed to go there. There are guards that prevent anyone from getting near the gas chamber.

  1. It’s always interesting to read the German language Wikipedia page on these camps: KZ Natzweiler-Struthof — the caption on their foto of the gas chamber is Gaskammer, etwa 2 km vom Lager — so there it is also claimed there was a gas chamber — at the moment, there are exactly 31 footnotes, but none are given to provide some proof of a gas chamber — also the following crazy story has no reference:

    Einem Mann gelang es, sich die Uniform des Lagerkommandanten anzueignen. Mit dessen Wagen konnte er zunächst unbemerkt aus dem Lager entkommen, denn die Wachposten salutierten dem perfekt gekleideten „Kommandanten“. Da im Elsass die Résistance sehr aktiv war, konnte der ehemalige Häftling innerhalb weniger Tage bis nach Algerien gelangen. Dort hatte er nichts mehr zu befürchten. Dies war die einzige bekannte erfolgreiche Flucht aus dem KZ Natzweiler-Struthof.

    An inmate allegedly escaped by wearing the uniform of the camp Kommandant (which he stole), and then simply driving out in the Kommandant’s car — the guards saluted as he left — afterward he fled to Algeria; exactly why Algeria is not said.

    For these ‘Holocaust’-related articles, Wikipedia editors do not demand the same standard of references/documentation that they do for articles on other subjects — eg I have never seen a notice that says ‘More references are needed’ on a ‘Holocaust’-related article.

      When I was traveling to the former camps, I would always keep saying to myself “Don’t laugh.” I was always afraid that I would be arrested for “Holocaust denial.”

    • You wrote about the Natzweiler camp.

      Is this former camp still open to tourists? Is anyone allowed to see this “gas chamber”?

        I don’t know, but probably not — I have visited Buchenwald (also because it was near Weimar, which I wanted to see), Auschwitz (2x), and Dachau — I am not sure if I will ever visit another camp — certainly not any of the so-called ‘death camps’, since I no longer believe the conventional (‘exterminationist’) ‘Holocaust’ story — perhaps a visit to one of the other camps, eg B-B, might be interesting.

    Gayssot law. Exposing the boundless ridiculousness of the Nazi “gas chambers” in broad daylight is strictly verboten in France…
