Did the prisoners in the Nazi concentration camps have toilet paper?

Filed under: Uncategorized — furtherglory @ 3:05 pm

In the comments section of my blog, someone asked if the prisoners in the Nazi concentration camps had toilet paper to wipe their ass after shitting.

Good question. I know the answer to this question. When I went to visit the location of the former Majdanek concentration camp, there were signs that pointed to the toilets, which were claimed to have been there when the camp was filled with prisoners.

Dome at Majdanek camp

After I visited the former Majanek camp, I wrote the following on my website:

Also to the left, as you face the dome, is the very inappropriate location of the toilets, which are underground but have air vents sticking up, that look like some weird sculpture. The first thing that the tour guides explain to Americans is the toilet etiquette in Poland. In many places, including the camp at Majdanek, one must pay the attendant on duty to use the toilets. Bring your own toilet paper because there is usually none available, even though the charges are supposed to pay for the cost of the paper. The toilets are for both sexes and there is no door on the men’s facility. When I visited the camp, the toilets were unbelievably filthy, just like at the Auschwitz II camp at Birkenau.

The photograph above shows the Mausoleum. To the right of it is located the reconstructed crematorium building. Standing on this spot, you have a panoramic view of the camp below you. Behind the Mausoleum are new modern apartment houses, their balconies painted red, yellow and blue, resembling buildings made with children’s colorful building blocks.

As you are standing in front of the Mausoleum facing the camp area, to the left there are more apartment buildings in the city of Lublin. To the right, as you face the camp area, is Lublin’s main Catholic cemetery which borders the camp; this cemetery was being used when the concentration camp was in operation.

There are noisy black crows flying overhead, which the tour guide says are always present here, as if to give further warning to visitors.

    • You wrote: “I’d say corn cobbs” [were used for toilet paper”]

      The German people did not eat corn back then. In Germany, Corn was considered to be pig food back then. A human being would have a hard time eating the cob of a corncob, or using a corn cob for toilet paper.,

      • I was referring to outhouses. You grew up with one you said. I figured you see where I was going there. They even had Spencer’s Gifts back in the 70’s,electric corncobs. I don’t think too many of their customers would’ve understood it though.

    • Or perhaps they just used Herbert Stolpmann’s propaganda leaflets as toilet paper. I fail to imagine another use for his ludicrous rants.

      • I’m still waiting for your book on Zionism, hermie. After all, one gets tired of using Holocaust Handbooks to line the bird cage. I want to use yours.

        Herbert actually fought in a war and suffered, hermie. You? You are just a pathetic armchair warrior.

          Intimidation through suffering. Hmmm…so Holocaustian. Almost a real thought this time. There’s still hope for you, I see. Keep faith and persevere. Lies always prevail…

              Kicking dumb believers’ asses is too good to be stopped or changed.

                LOL, you’ve never kicked my ass, hermie. Delusional, much?
                You lack balls to go anywhere else and you started to bore me. I just popped in for a visit.

                  People, yes. Sheeple, no.

                  With your help, I’ve only demonstrated many times that you and the other Holocaust conspiracy theorists have no palpable evidence to support your dear politically-motivated horror stories and that you don’t even plan to ever bring some. All the Holocaust conspiracy theorists have is a set of testimonial BS and a few ludicrous conspiratorial theories supposed to explain why their hands are empty. Debunked smoke and mirrors…

                  Anybody not planning to waste 4 hours a day playing with you and your friends on your forum, lacks balls??? How childish and dumb. I’ve wasted more than enough time debating with you and your accomplices (those who dared to come here at least) on this blog.

        • Well, I have mentioned this piously that you could not buy or obtain toilet paper during the war years in Germany. What almost every family did, mainly us children, we waited for the newspaper to arrive and since all the propaganda was absorbed, we would cut the paper into small squares which were hung up on a hook inside the toilet.

          Visiting relations or other families I never seen anything else.

          As children we competed, when it came to a picture of Hitler and giggled to have defecated the face of our Führer!

          No – I can not imagine that KZ inmates had toilet paper.

          As a by-note, traveling the far east, through India up to China, the left hand is the ‘dirty hand’ that’s their substitute for toilet paper which I had to follow, even places considered tourist attraction, but there was always a bucket of water handy to wash up.

            These small pieces were normally called ‘Scheisshauspapier’ – somewhat obscene

        • You know what a warrior is? Do you even know that? Believe me,you don’t want to. Put something other than that in your vocabulary until you fight. Trust me. It’s not fun.

          • Should’ve been “war” not “wat”. My bad Brice
