Was the famous Lachau document a forgery?

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust — furtherglory @ 2:25 pm

The famous “Lachout document” has been recently revealed as a forgery.

You can read about the Lachout document on my web site: http://www.scrapbookpages.com/DachauScrapbook/GasChamber/LachoutDocument.html

The English translation of the Lachout document is reprinted below:

Military Police Service Vienna, Oct. 1, 1948
10th. copy
Circular No 31/48

1. The Allied Investigation Commission has established so far
that no persons were killed by the use of poison gas in the
following concentration camps: Bergen-Belsen, Buchenwald,
Dachau, Flossenbürg, Gross-Rosen, Mauthausen and its
extension camps, Natzweiler, Neuengamme, Niederhagen
(Wewelsburg), Ravensbrück, Sachsenhausen, Stutthof,
Theresienstadt.

In all these cases it could be proved that the confessions
were the result of torture and the testimonies were false.

This fact has to be taken into account in war crime
investigations and interrogations.

Former concentration camp prisoners testifying that persons,
especially Jews, were killed with poison gas in these
concentration camps, are to be informed of this finding by the
Allied Investigation Commissions. Should they insist in their
testimony, a charge of false testimony is to be filed against
them.

2. Paragraph 1 of circular 15/48 can be canceled.

The commander of the
Military Police Service:
Mueller, Major

At the American Military Tribunal proceedings against the staff members at Mauthausen, there were confessions from the accused about the gas chamber there, as well as eye-witness testimony. The Lachout document claims that there was no gas chamber at Mauthausen and that these confessions were obtained by torture.

The following information about the controversial Lachout document is from this Holocaust revisionist web site:

Begin quote

Emil Lachout was a lieutenant in the Military Police Service in Austria in 1948. His job was to accompany the Military Police and members of the Allied War Crimes Commission during the arrests of alleged war criminals to ensure that the suspects were not tortured or abused. Lachout was also involved in the investigation of the Austrian camps, including Mauthausen. (29-7890 to 7895) In 1944, Lachout had been a member of the German Military Police. (29-7948)

The Allied War Crimes Commission was composed of two military police investigators from each country and two Austrian observers, himself and Major Müller. It had been formed as a result of Allied mistreatment of alleged war criminals in such trials as Malmédy where it had been proved that false statements were extracted by torture. The Allies wanted to prevent such things from happening again. (29-7895 to 7897) The Commission was disbanded in 1949, and was reconstituted thereafter only for individual cases. (7901)

Lachout personally saw instances of tortured Allied prisoners. He talked to them privately and had to “break the ice” in order to get statements from them. Sometimes the men didn’t dare to speak because they suspected an Allied officer was there as well. On the basis of his observations, Lachout had instructed that the men be examined by doctors; it was clear that the men had been tortured. (29-7960)

The Commission conducted an investigation, in which Lachout was involved, into the allegation that a gas chamber had been used in Mauthausen. It concluded that there were no gas chambers in the camp. In the investigations he was involved in, they found that many of the accusations made, particularly by former concentration camp inmates, were false. (29-7897, 7898)

Although Lachout was not personally involved in the investigations of camps in Germany, his office received documentation from the War Crime Commissions located there, pursuant to which he freed prisoners who had been wrongly accused and imprisoned. (29-7951)

New Ursula Haverbeck photo!

Ursula looks so sad!  She has lost another appeal.  This photo appears to be a file photo, because her outfit does not match other photos of her November 28th, 2017 court appearance.

On  Nov 28, 2017 Deutsche Welle had another article about Ursula Haverbeck which you can read in full here:

Haverbeck has been handed several jail terms but has yet to be jailed….

…the 89-year-old woman lost her appeal to a prior conviction on Tuesday. However, four months were shaved off her original conviction of 18 months. Prosecutors wanted the sentence upheld, [but] Haverbeck’s lawyers were seeking exoneration…..

This Tuesday’s appeal verdict is not final, either. Haverbeck’s lawyers intend to take the case to the Higher Regional Court in the town of Hamm, their last chance to challenge the sentence.

Oskar Groening — the SS man who observed the gassing of the Jews at Auschwitz

My photo of the gas chamber at Auschwitz

I took the photo above, in the Auschwitz main camp, while my tour guide was screaming at me that I COULD not take photos. She should have said “you MAY not take photos”. I could take photos, so I did.

http://www.scrapbookpages.com/AuschwitzScrapbook/Tour/Birkenau/RuinsBunker2.html

The following text is quoted from my web site which you can read in full by following the link above.

Oskar Groening, an SS man who worked at Auschwitz-Birkenau, said that the gassing of the Jews, during the Holocaust, was done at night in two old farmhouses.

As told by Laurence Rees, Groening said that he had witnessed a gassing operation 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. 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 escapees who had been caught and shot.

Groening was “overcome by curiosity,” according to Lawrence Rees, and Groening and his comrades stayed around to watch what was going on at the farm house. 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.

This remote area at Auschwitz-Birkenau was a good location for the use of Zyklon-B which was a dangerous chemical that had the potential to kill the SS men who had to throw it inside the building.

Until March 1942, the gassing of the Jews had 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 dangerous poison gas.

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

Begin quote

“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 [the Jews] as enemies of our people. The reasons behind the Extermination Program seemed to me right.”
