Begin quote from news article:

A 96-year-old former Nazi guard and SS officer known as the “bookkeeper of Auschwitz” has been deemed fit to serve jail time for his 2015 conviction as an accessory to murder, German prosecutors say.

Kathrin Soefker, a spokeswoman for prosecutors in Hanover, northern Germany, said doctors had determined that Oskar Groening was well enough to start his four-year prison sentence, so long as he was able to receive “appropriate medical care” while incarcerated.

A 96-year-old has physical constraints but … he is fit for prison,” Soefker said.

Oscar Groening is a former SS man who worked at Auschwitz-Birkenau. He has admitted, in the past, that Jews were killed in gas chambers at this camp.

Groening said that the gassing of the Jews, in two old farmhouses, took place at night. As told by writer Laurence Rees in one of his books, Groening said that he had witnessed a gassing one night after he had been awakened by an alarm because a number of Jews had escaped as they were being marched to the gas chamber.

Groening said that he saw the lights on in one of the farm houses, and seven or eight bodies out in front of the building. He assumed that these were the bodies of the escapees who had been caught and shot.

Groening was “overcome by curiosity,” according to Rees. Groening and his comrades then stayed around one night to watch what was going on at the farm house. They claimed that they saw an SS man, wearing a gas mask, pour Zyklon-B pellets through a hatch in the side of the cottage wall. They heard screaming for a minute, followed by silence. Then an SS man went up to the door, and looked through a peephole to see if all the prisoners were dead.

Groening said that this remote area was considered to be a good location for the use of Zyklon-B which was a dangerous poison that had the potential to kill the SS men who were throwing it inside the building.

Until March 1942, the gassing of the Jews had allegedly been done in Krema I at the Auschwitz main camp. Krema I was situated between the SS hospital and the Gestapo building, not a good location for the use of  a dangerous poisonous gas. That is why a new location for gassing had to be found.

In his autobiography, Rudolf Hoess, the  former Commandant at Auschwitz-Birkenau, wrote regarding the gassing in the little white house:

Begin quote from the autobiography of Rudolf Hoess:

“Hundreds of men and women in the full bloom of life walked all unsuspecting to their death in the gas chambers under the blossom-laden fruit trees of the orchard. This picture of death in the midst of life remains with me to this day. I looked upon them as enemies of our people. The reasons behind the Extermination Program seemed to me [to be] right.”

End quote from autobiography of Rudolf Hoess


  1. This is an excellent article below that shows how Hitler with some very good planning got things back on track in Germany.
    This is exactly what we could use today but as we know the Jews don’t want us to make it on our own they want to control all the purse strings.
    This is the real reason why the allies wanted Hitler out of the picture they couldn’t deal with the competition and the fact that Hitler was doing the right thing for his people.
    The Jews couldn’t let this information get out and had to contain it as fast as they could.
    Even though Churchill heard repeated appeals from Hitler for peaceful solutions Churchill would have no part of it. This file is a downloadable pdf worth reading and filing away.
    I have it in booklet form and just happen to find it on the internet for the rest of you.

    • Jimbo. Here’s my question. If Hitler spent all his time thinking about how to destroy the Jews,where is gonna find time to get the Fatherland back on track. I mean those in America were standing in line at the soup kitchen and his people were taking state sponsored vacations.

        • I got 2 questions. First one. How many Hebs were involved in the treaty of Versailles ? I ask ,because Hitler knew the Jews were outright trouble,long before WW1 started . I don’t see where he outright hated them. He just knew they were up to some monkey business. My next question. What’s the “German Confederation”? I understand the basic principle. It was put together to coordinate the economies of the seperate German speaking nations. It came about as a result of the former Roman Empire being involved. They said it went to shit ,because Prussia and Austria were acting like bitches towards each other. I guess what I want to know is,did this confederation give Germany any claim to Austria prior to WW1? Was Austria ever considered part of the Fatherland? It just seems that some of what I’ve read,Germany has been f–led out of a lot of real estate.

  2. He did not stand up for what was right he deserves to go to jail. He’s just a liar like all the rest of the Holohuxsters trying to save his ass by going along with this hoax now he’s going to jail. He thought he was going to save his ass but now he’s going to jail should have just told the truth in the beginning he’s just a coward I have no respect for him even though he’s 90-something years old he’s a coward.

  4. Once again,lies and contradiction. What happened to the shower rooms for gassing? That’s where they the Jews were bumped off at. Now it turns out,it was two farmhouses. Accessory to the murder of 300,000. Where? He said out in front of a farmhouse,were 9 stiffs. That would be a long way to go,if you’re gonna get 300,000 stiffs

    Comment by Tim — August 3, 2017 @ 2:22 pm

    • What really happened at the farm house:
      The first trainload of Jews to be transported to Auschwitz arrived in the spring of 1942. Tired and disoriented by their journey, these ,men, women and children were taken off the train in Birkenau, where those judged able to work were led away, and the rest were marched six hundred yards to one of the small farmhouses at the back of the camp.
      Here they were told to undress behind specially erected screens, all the while unaware of the fate that awaited them. On one of the farmhouse doors had been written the words ‘Disinfection Room’, and towards the guards directed the prisoners, telling them, with the assistance of interpreters, that they should remember where they had stowed their luggage so that they could locate it after the disinfection room, two or three hundred at a time, before the doors were screwed tight. The guards on the roof dropped two canisters of granulate Zyklon B into the room below.
      After ten minutes, all the prisoners were dead. An hour later, the doors were opened by the Sonderkommandos Jewish prisoners forced to assist with the operations – who pulled gold teeth and rings from the bodies and pilled them high in deep pits, next to the farmhouse .
      With one-hundred in each pit, they were set on fire with old bits of cloth doused in petrol.
      Once the bodies were aflame, additional corpses were added. As they burned, fat from the bodies was collected from the edges of the pit, using metal buckets, and and added to the top of the pile to accelerate the inferno.The fires took seven to eight hours to burn out. Once cooled, any remaining bones were removed by the Sonderkommandos and crushed using heavy wooden pestles on flat concrete mortars. The resulting ash was then loaded onto trucks and dumped into the river Vestula (Weichsel in German) a few miles away.
      Throughout this process, Rudolf Höss (Höß) made sure that he was seen as leading by example. He didn’t want anyone to believe that he wasn’t capable of performing these duties

        I don’t think that the Germans would have dumped ashes into a river that they were using for drinking water.

          Drinking Water

          Vielleicht, das war einmal – Perhaps it was once upon a time:

          The Vistula is brown and black in places at Cracow, centuries-old coronation town of the Polish kings. “The river is a fluent chemical laboratory,” says Krzysztof Bolek, head of the Center for Environmental Control of the Voivodeship of Cracow, one of the 49 administrative districts of the country. In the core of the 750 000 inhabitants of Krakow, sewage water is introduced to the Vistula River: the steel Moloch Nowa Huta, a soda factory, a chemical plant, an electric power station, a metal Hut and a pharmaceutical factory.

          Nowa Huta, classified by the Ministry of Environment in Warsaw as the third largest polluter of the country, stands for the misery of the Polish heavy industry.Under the guidance of Soviet experts, the work was built in the 1950s with the technology of the twenties. To produce a ton of steel it takes five times as much energy and ten times as much water as modern Western steel companies. Two mechanical sewage treatment plants clean the sewage by means of a system of screens and screens. But only the coarse dirt can be withheld.

          Nowa Huta is not an isolated case. Every year, 12 billion cubic meters of industrial and municipal sewage flows into the Polish rivers, more than half of them entering the Vistula River.

  5. Good. Age doesn’t cleanse the crimes he was complicit in.

    Comment by David Pearce — August 3, 2017 @ 2:15 pm

    • Review the definition of complicit, then review the case — there is no evidence he was “complicit” in any crime, much less a capital crime — or that he even knew of any crimes — he was employed at what the Germans stipulate was a “death camp”, during a time when the Germans stipulate murder was committed — this is how the Abkommen from the Demanjuk case is used to summarily convict these old people of ‘accessory to muder’, with no proof whatsoever.

      If you’re going to comment here, try to do it with a bit more honesty and integrity.

      You fag.

      Comment by eah — August 3, 2017 @ 4:51 pm

      • If he didn’t realise that people were being murdered in gas chambers and treated brutally in a small camp where he mixed with other SS officers who did know then he obviously had his head as far up his arse as you have. I assume he also had eyes and olfactory senses.

        He was complicit because he was part of the death camp process.

        Why resort to calling me a fag ? Name calling is usually the last resort of a losing argument. Actually I’m not “a fag” if by that you mean Americanese for homosexual ? Are you ? If you are I wouldn’t have a problem with that. I understand that those that are vociferously anti gay are actually latent homosexuals themselves. Perhaps you need to speak with someone.

        In any case I’m very glad that he was found guilty and will have his spend his last few years on this earth with time enough to dwell on his previous life.

        Comment by David Pearce — August 4, 2017 @ 2:35 am

        • people were being murdered in gas chambers and treated brutally

          Of course as I said no concrete evidence of any such thing is provided at these “trials” — do you know what the word stipulate means? — instead such a “trial” consists of Jews screeching at the defendant — in decent countries people are not convicted of crimes when there is no evidence of their participation or knowledge of said crimes — it is as simple as that — sadly Germany is no longer a decent country — and it’s cretins like you who help enable that kind of disgrace.

          Actually, you are a fag — I do not call homosexuals fags.

          Comment by eah — August 4, 2017 @ 7:46 am

          • I still would like to know why you feel the need to call me “a fag”. What do you mean exactly ? It’s very strange indeed. As for the drivel you write well that’s something else entirely.

          There is no such word as Americanese. As I recall, I have told you this before, yet you continue to make this mistake.

          Comment by furtherglory — August 4, 2017 @ 9:27 am

  6. Begin quote from the autobiography of Rudolf Hoess:

    Höss also said that 2.5m Jews were gassed to death at Auschwitz while he was Kommandant — but as is now well known, a plaque at the site today says the death toll was 1.1m, and this includes those who died of natural causes (or not so natural causes, as the case may be — after all, even back then typhus was survivable if properly treated) — so re both Höss’s testimony at Nürnberg, and what is in the book ‘Kommandant at Auschwitz’, you have to pick and choose what you believe — since many things in both are now known to be untrue.

        • Why did you single me out to ask that question to? You’re on a site where there are clearly people that are not fans of the Jews . So why ask me specifically ? What prompted your question? Why do you like them so? Hate is a pretty strong word. What evidence do you have to back you up,that I do loathe the Jew . I’ve made no direct statements eluding to the fact that I may or may not hate the Jew . So unless you have statements from,saying I hate Jews,don’t start talking shit like that.

            You wrote “I accepted the holo is BS” in your previous comment, Tim. More than enough to be called a guy who hates the Jews. Mere bullying and emotional blackmail. It’s not really about actually hating the Jews. It’s about submission [in accepting the canonical Gospels of the Holocult as a Holy truth] or vilification [as a mad bloodthirsty hater full of racial biases and hate-fueled false beliefs].

            • I don’t know. I guess this lil bitch is just trying to stir shit. I’ve mentioned before on here,it’s the collective that I hate. Not the individual ( okay,I’ve only known 2 Jews ). My Sgt. in Nam was a lifer. He was on his third tour,when my sorry ass arrived in country. He showed me how to survive. My first fire fight,I pissed all over myself ( wasn’t the badass I thought I was). He taught me how to work with my fear. That kept me alive. I’ll always be in debt to him for that. So I don’t hate the individual. I never spoke with Wolf about the holo,but he is one Jew that would’ve said,”survivor benefits are BS. Get off your lazy ass and earn your money”. Like I said,I hate what the collective promotes.

              • I rather think that he or she felt that you could be induced to change your views on the Holohoax and return to the Axis of Good, the side of Holocultism and Zio-Globalism. Perhaps he or she felt a fragility in your knowledge about the Holohoax. Hence his/her gross trick of emotional terrorism against yourself.

                • How am I gonna change my views? People keep changing their stories ( I don’t wanna hear any of them say ,”they’re old. They’re memories are failing. That’s why their stories keep changing). Like I said,they’re always changing the number of the dead. After all these years,no one can produce one single number of how many supposedly died. Their killing me here,is what they’re doing . My decision against the holo has nothing to do with race either . I don’t side with ’em,because I don’t like being lied. They got plenty of chumps on their side. I’m not gonna be one.

                  By feeling guilty of hurting their feelings with your disbelief, of killing a second time those people who have already suffered so much with your denial (as formulated in their style of phraseology). Or in other words, by turning off your rational brain because you are overwhelmed by a skillful manipulation of your emotions. That’s what they bet on. That’s their way to do it. I have seen it many times. Alas, often successfully…

They filled my head with a bunch of shit,that now I know is a 99.999% chance it didn’t happen. The Jews can’t keep their stories strait. If they only could’ve kept the number of the dead the same,or close to the same,I would’ve never started digging. When I started digging the just seemed to propagate . So how am I gonna feel guilty,or believe anything they say ?

    • Eah wrote: “so re both Höss’s testimony at Nürnberg, and what is in the book ‘Kommandant at Auschwitz’, you have to pick and choose what you believe”

      Important to keep in mind that Höss didn’t testify at Nuremberg as an accused but as a defense witness (the humor of the accusers was boundless). Thus he didn’t accuse himself as often claimed. He rather accused his bosses in the hope of a lenient treatment for himself and his family. A significant and telling nuance.

      Also important to keep in mind the means and tricks used to secure such testimonial ‘evidence’ at that time.

      Bribes/deals, threats and tortures were the norm at the postwar mock trials.

      “Our investigators would put a black hood over the accused’s head and then punch him in the face with brass knuckles, kick him, and beat him with rubber hose. Many of the German defendants had teeth knocked out. Some had their jaws broken. All but two of the Germans, in the 139 cases we investigated, had been kicked in the testicles beyond repair.” U.S. Judge Edward L. Van Roden

      Of course, not only the Soviets knew how to get the convenient “strange confessions” they needed for political purposes…

      In the car that took Höss to Nuremberg, there was another man and both men were able to talk freely. The other man’s name was Moritz von Schirmeister. He later said in a letter to Höss’ widow that Höss confided to him:

      “Certainly, I signed a statement that I killed two and a half million Jews. But I could just as well have said that it was five million Jews. There are certain methods by which any confession can be obtained, whether it is true or not.”

      Moritz von Schirmeister’s letter to Rudolf Höss’ widow, May 1948

      Book “Legions of Death” by Rupert Butler, describing how British Jewish ‘interrogator’ Bernard Clarke expressed pride in having tortured Rudolf Höss in order to obtain “a coherent statement” from him.

      And about Höss’ so-called memoirs, it’s good to keep in mind that ghostwriting was of course not born with Polanski’s 2010 movie ‘The Ghost Writer.’
