The Holocaust Trust version of Holocaust history

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , — furtherglory @ 3:32 pm

This quote is from an article in the Huddersfield Daily Examiner, which you can read in full here.

“For 16 years, the Holocaust Education Trust (HET) has been running trips to Auschwitz, the extermination camp where 1.2m innocent people were murdered simply because they didn’t fit narrow Nazi ideals.”

The official number of deaths at Auschwitz is now 1.1 million, down from 4 million, which was claimed for years. But it never hurts to add another 100,000 or so victims, just in  case.

The article also contains these claims:

1. Auschwitz played a leading role in the Holocaust where six million Jews and five million Slavs, Gypsies, homosexuals, disabled people and political enemies were massacred by Hitler’s genocidal regime.

2. the Polish town of Oswiecim.

The name (pronounced ‘oshee-entsim’) was once a regular town with 8,000 Jews comprising the majority of its population.

3. In 1939, it was occupied by the Nazis and renamed Auschwitz as part of the party’s ‘Lebensraum’ (living space) policy.

4. Oswiecim was purged of its Jewish population.

5. In a cemetery a short distance from the Oswiecim’s attractive main square we learn that Jewish gravestones were removed and used as paving stones, our HET guide Martin Winstone says. Hitler was determined to erase the Jewish race from the past as well as the present.

8. [the Arbeit macht Frei sign] means ‘work makes you free’ and was presumably intended as a sick joke; no prisoner was supposed to leave Auschwitz alive.

The Arbeit Macht Frei sign was only put on gates into camps that were Class I camps, where prisoners had a chance to be released.  http://www.scrapbookpages.com/Poland/Auschwitz/Auschwitz12.html

Now you know the true facts of the Holocaust, dear readers.  Don’t try to deny any of this or you might go to prison for 5 years for “Holocaust denial” which is a crime in 19 countries.

Jewish women were forced to play in an orchestra as Jews marched into the gas chambers

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , — furtherglory @ 10:27 am

You can read about the Jewish women, who were forced to play in an orchestra as Jewish prisoners were marched into the gas chambers, in this article in The Star online newspaper.

The headline of the article is

Sheffield play looks at strange true story of Auschwitz orchestra

The following quote is from the news article in The Star:

The extraordinary story of an orchestra of women who were forced to play music in the Nazi death camp at Auschwitz is told in Playing for Time, which is at the Crucible Theatre next week.

The story is based on the memoirs of star cabaret singer Fania Fenelon, played by Sian Phillips, who was forced to join the orchestra like the other women.

They had to perform for their SS captors and also as fellow prisoners were led to their deaths in the gas chambers.

An orchestra, consisting of 54 female prisoners, played at the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp for a year and a half; this was the only female orchestra commissioned by the SS during World War II. After the women’s orchestra leader, Alma Rosé, died in October 1944, the other 53 women were sent to Bergen-Belsen, where all of them survived.

Anita Lasker Wallfisch played the cello in the women’s orchestra. In an interview in 2008, Wallfisch told a reporter that she survived Auschwitz because she was in the orchestra: “As long as they wanted an orchestra, they couldn’t put us in the gas chamber. That stupid they wouldn’t be, because we are not really replaceable. Somebody who carries stones is replaceable.”

As far as I know, Anita Lasker Wallfisch did not say that she was forced to play in an orchestra. She wanted to play in an  orchestra; no one put a gun to her head.

When I started blogging 5 years ago, my first blog post was about Tadeusz Borowski, an Auschwitz prisoner who wrote a book entitled This Way for the Gas, Ladies and Gentlemen.  In that blog post, I wrote: “As the victims marched to the gas chamber, there were other privileged prisoners playing soccer, as well as the prisoners in the camp orchestra who would be practicing for a concert in another nearby field.”

I also wrote about the orchestras that played at Auschwitz-Birkenau, as the prisoners marched to the gas chamber, on this blog post.

The news article in The Star continues with this quote:

[The women] had to perform for their SS captors and also as fellow prisoners were led to their deaths in the gas chambers.

Israeli-born Noa Bodner plays Esther, a harmonica player.

She said: “She doesn’t say much. She is quite a competent musician, she’d like to think. When she does intervene and talks she is very gritty.

“She speaks almost like a politician. She is really trying to get the others to understand the importance of continuing the Jewish lineage. She is quite proud she is a Jew.

“The way she looks at the Germans, they are not quite human, they are monsters. She thinks, ‘we are the chosen people and I am proud to be one, regardless of those monsters’.”

Did you catch that, dear readers? The Jews are proud to be Jews; the Germans are “not quite human, they are monsters.”  The Jews are the “chosen  people” and the Germans are “monsters.”  The Germans are not quite human and they will always be hated and reviled — until the end of time.

Did Amon Goeth have the authority to order executions?

Amon Goeth's mugshot after he was arrested by the Germans

Amon Goeth’s mugshot after he was arrested by the Germans

In my blog post today, I am answering a comment made by one of my readers. The comment is quoted below:

“So he [Amon Goeth] didn’t shoot from the balcony. That excuses the thousands upon thousans whose deaths he ordered? Where did you study convoluted logic and denial at? You ought to have a master’s degree.”

Here is my answer to this question:

Several years ago, I went to visit the spot where the Plaszow camp was formerly located. I also visited a small museum in Krakow, where I copied Goeth’s mugshot photo at the top  of this page. Goeth had been arrested by the Germans for stealing from the warehouses of the Plaszow camp.

I read several books about Amon Goeth where I studied “convoluted logic and denial.”  In all my study of this subject, I never learned that Amon Goeth had had the authority to order thousands of deaths.

Amon Goeth, the commander of the Plaszow camp

Amon Goeth, the commander of the Plaszow camp

As the commandant of the Plaszow camp, Goeth had been ordered to carry out the executions that were ordered by others. These executions took place at the Plaszow camp. The people who were executed were not prisoners in  the Plaszow camp.

According to David Crowe’s book, entitled Oscar Schindler,  Wilek Chilowicz was a Jewish prisoner, who was the head of the OD, the Jewish police at Plaszow. Crowe wrote that “Göth sought permission to murder Chilowicz and several other prominent OD men in the camp on false charges.”

In all the Nazi concentration camps, the staff had to get permission from headquarters in Oranienburg to punish a prisoner, but punishment did not include murder.

Dr. Georg Konrad Morgen was a Waffen-SS officer and attorney, whom Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler had put in charge of investigating murder, corruption and mistreatment of prisoners in all the Nazi concentration camps in 1943. Dr. Morgen’s first investigation had resulted in the arrest of Karl Otto Koch, the Commandant of Buchenwald, and his later execution by the Nazis.

According to David Crowe’s book, Goeth asked one of his SS officers, Josef Sowinski, to prepare a detailed, false report about a potential camp rebellion led by Chilowicz and other OD men. Based on this report, Koppe sent a secret letter to Goeth giving him the authority to carry out the execution of Chilowicz and several other OD men. The execution took place on August 13, 1944; Goeth was arrested exactly a month later and charged by Dr. Morgen with corruption and brutality, including the murder of Wilek Chilowicz and several others.

The office in Oranienburg did not have the authority to give an execution order; an execution could only be authorized by the Gestapo in Berlin.

Due to the fact that Germany was losing the war and the SS now had bigger problems, Goeth was never put on trial in Dr. Morgen’s court and this was the last investigation done by the SS.

After the war, Dr. Morgen was arrested as a “war criminal,” and imprisoned in the bunker at the Dachau concentration camp, which had been converted into “War Crimes Enclosure No. 1″ by the American military. According to David Crowe’s book, Wilek Chilowicz was the head of the OD, the Jewish police at Plaszow. He wrote that “Göth sought permission to murder Chilowicz and several other prominent OD men in the camp on false charges.” In all the Nazi concentration camps, the staff had to get permission from headquarters in Oranienburg to punish a prisoner, but punishment did not include murder.

Dr. Georg Konrad Morgen was a Waffen-SS officer and attorney whom Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler had put in charge of investigating murder, corruption and mistreatment of prisoners in all the Nazi concentration camps in 1943. Dr. Morgen’s first investigation had resulted in the arrest of Karl Otto Koch, the Commandant of Buchenwald, and his later execution by the Nazis. When Goeth realized that he was being investigated by Dr. Morgen, he sought permission from Wilhelm Koppe in the central office in Oranienburg to execute Wilek Chilowicz, who could have testified against him.

After World War II ended, the American military turned Amon Goeth over to the Polish government for prosecution as a war criminal. He was brought before the Supreme National Tribunal of Poland in Krakow. His trial took place between August 27, 1946 and September 5, 1946. Goeth was charged with being a member of the Nazi party and a member of the Waffen-SS, Hitler’s elite army, both of which had been designated as criminal organizations by the Allies after the war. His crimes included the charges that he had taken part in the activities of these two criminal organizations. The crime of being a Nazi applied only to Nazi officials, and Goeth had never held a job as a Nazi official. In fact, at the time of Goeth’s conviction by the Polish court, the judgment against the SS and the Nazi party as criminal organizations had not yet been made by the Nuremberg IMT.

At Goeth’s trial, the Nazi party was said to be “an organization which, under the leadership of Adolf Hitler, through aggressive wars, violence and other crimes, aimed at world domination and establishment of the National-Socialist regime.” Amon Goeth was accused of personally issuing orders to deprive people of freedom, to ill-treat and exterminate individuals and whole groups of people. His crimes, including the newly created crime of genocide, came under a new law of the Allies, called Crimes against Humanity.

The charges against Amon Goeth were as follows:

(1) The accused as commandant of the forced labour camp at Plaszow (Cracow) from 11th February, 1943, till 13th September, 1944, caused the death of about 8,000 inmates by ordering a large number of them to be exterminated.

(2) As a SS-Sturmführer the accused carried out on behalf of SS-Sturmbannführer Willi Haase the final closing down of the Cracow ghetto. This liquidation action which began on 13th March, 1943, deprived of freedom about 10,000 people who had been interned in the camp of Plaszow, and caused the death of about 2,000.

(3) As a SS-Hauptsturmführer the accused carried out on 3rd September, 1943, the closing down of the Tarnow ghetto. As a result of this action an unknown number of people perished, having been killed on the spot in Tarnow; others died through asphyxiation during transport by rail or were exterminated in other camps, in particular at Auschwitz.

(4) Between September, 1943, and 3rd February, 1944, the accused closed down the forced labour camp at Szebnie near Jaslo by ordering the inmates to be murdered on the spot or deported to other camps, thus causing the death of several thousand persons.

(5) Simultaneously with the activities described under (1) to (4) the accused deprived the inmates of valuables, gold and money deposited by them, and appropriated those things. He also stole clothing, furniture and other movable property belonging to displaced or interned people, and sent them to Germany. The value of stolen goods and in particular of valuables reached many million zlotys at the rate of exchange in force at the time.

The last charge, as stated in number (5) above, was the crime for which he had been arrested by the Gestapo on September 13, 1944, after an investigation by Waffen-SS officer Dr. Georg Konrad Morgen.

Auschwitz now has online lessons for visitors

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 1:21 pm

You can read all about the online lessons, for visitors to Auschwitz, in this news article in the Jewish World.

This quote is from the online lessons link in the news story: http://auschwitz.org/en/history/

Begin quote:

All over the world, Auschwitz has become a symbol of terror, genocide, and the Holocaust. It was established by Germans in 1940, in the suburbs of Oswiecim, a Polish city that was annexed to the Third Reich by the Nazis. Its name was changed to Auschwitz, which also became the name of Konzentrationslager Auschwitz.

The direct reason for the establishment of the camp was the fact that mass arrests of Poles were increasing beyond the capacity of existing “local” prisons. Initially, Auschwitz was to be one more concentration camp of the type that the Nazis had been setting up since the early 1930s. It functioned in this role throughout its existence, even when, beginning in 1942, it also became the largest of the death camps.

End quote

Several years ago, I did a blog post, in which I wrote that the original name of the town was Auschwitz. I suppose that I will have to take that blog post down because the official history of Auschwitz now states that the original name of the town was Oswiecim.

Curiously, the online lessons do not have any information about the gas chambers at Auschwitz.  Maybe it’s there and I couldn’t find it.  I did find a photo of the ruins of Krema II, which is very similar to a photo, shown below, that I took in 2005.

My 2005 photo of the Ruins of Krema II at Auschwitz-Birkenau

My 2005 photo of the Ruins of Krema II at Auschwitz-Birkenau

I think that the online lessons should include a photo of the gas chamber in the main Auschwitz camp, and explain how the gassing of the prisoners was accomplished. That’s the main thing that visitors want to know.

Hitler made known his intentions, regarding the Jews, from the very beginning

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 5:03 pm

A new reader of my blog wrote this in a comment:

One may dispute certain aspects, figures, whatever of the Holocaust in general (for example, how many folks actually died at a camp or via the Einsatzgruppen), but the general reality of an intentional program to eliminate certain groups in a brutal manner is indisputable.

It is true that Hitler had “an intentional program” to eliminate the Jews.  He made his intentions known in a number of speeches and in his book entitled Mein Kampf

You can read Hitler’s intentions in several speeches and in quotes from his book.

Hitler wrote in Mein Kampf:

(Quote regarding “The Big Lie”) All this was inspired by the principle–which is quite true in itself–that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional
nature than consciously or voluntarily, and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they are more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in tha art of lying. These people know only too well how to use falsehood for the basest purposes.

From time immemorial, however, the Jews have known better than any others how falsehood and calumny can be exploited. Is not their very existance founded on one great lie, namely, that they are a religious community, whereas in reality they are a race? And what a race! One of the greatest thinkers that mankind has produced has branded the Jews for all time with a statement which is profoundly and exactly true. He (Schopenhauer) called the Jew “The Great Master of Lies.” Those who do not realize the truth of that statement, or do not wish to believe it, will never be able to lend a hand in helping Truth to prevail.

Mein Kampf, 1925

Hitler’s Reichstag speech on January 30, 1939

We see clearly that this war could only end with the extermination of the Germanic peoples, or that Jewry must disappear from Europe. I already said it on September 1, 1939 [sic] in the German Reichstag…that this war will not end the way the Jews have foreseen it, namely that the European Aryan peoples will be exterminated; rather the result of this war will be the annihilation of Jewry. For once all the others will not bleed to death alone; for once the ancient Jewish law will come into play: an eye for an eye; a tooth for a tooth.

——-

This quote is from Hiler’s speech on January 30, 1942 (monitored by the Allied monitoring service)

The Bolshevist monster, to which they want to deliver the European nations, will someday tear them and their people to pieces. The Jew will not however exterminate the European peoples, rather he will be the victim of his own plot.

——–

Hitler’s words, in 1943, regarding the Jews

I have also left no doubt that, if the nations of Europe are again to be regarded as mere shares to be bought and sold by those international money and finance conspirators, then that race, Jewry, which is the real guilty party in this murderous struggle, will be saddled with the responsibility. I also made it clear that this time, not only would millions of children of European Aryan races starve, not only would millions of grown men meet their death, and not only would millions of women and children be burned or bombed to death in the cities, but that the real culprit would atone for his guilt, even if by more humane means.

Quoted from Hitler’s Political Testament, page 3

——–

This quote is from Mein Kampf, 1925, Volume 1, page 358

The most fearsome example of this kind is Russia where he (Jewry) allowed 39 million humans in truly fanatical wildness to die or starve in inhuman agony, in order to secure the mastery of a great people for a gang of Jewish literati and stock exchange bandits.

The result is not only the end of freedom for the people oppressed by the Jews, but rather also the end of these parasites of the peoples themselves. After the death of the victim, the vampire dies sooner or later.

——–

The following quote is from Mein Kampf, 1925, Volume 1, page 61

Was there any excrement, any shamelessness in any form, above all in cultural life, in which at least one Jew would not have been involved? As soon as one even carefully cut into such an abscess, one found, like maggots in a decaying body, often blinded by the sudden light, a kike.

——-

At no time did Hitler ever say that the Jews were a  superior group of people, who had never done anything wrong, but he wanted them out of Europe, for no reason at all.

Students in Copperas Cove, TX create mixed up Holocaust projects for school assignment

When I first read a news article here about 14 year-old students creating Holocaust projects for a school assignment, I had to look up the location of the town called Copperas Cove.  My first thought was that this was a town in the UK.  The project sounded like something that British students would do.

The news article begins with this quote:

COPPERAS COVE — It was a small suitcase filled with personal items, such as a handkerchief and a favorite necklace, from a young girl’s life that would soon end.

But to Crinity Easlick, 14, it represented what Anne Frank might have packed when she and millions of Jews were sent to concentration camps during World War II.

Easlick was one of about 175 eighth-graders at Copperas Cove Junior High School who made individual projects reflecting some aspect of the Holocaust for the school’s annual “Our Holocaust Living Library” presentations Thursday.

Easlick said Frank’s forgiveness impressed her the most. “Even when the Nazis killed her mother, she was positive and believed that everyone had a good heart.”

Oops! It appears that someone didn’t do enough research for her project. Anne Frank’s mother was not killed by the Nazis, nor by anyone else.  She died of tuberculosis in a hospital at Auschwitz in January 1945.

Anne never knew how her mother died, nor even that she was dead.  Anne and her sister, Margot, were sent from Auschwitz on October 28, 1944 to the Bergen-Belsen exchange camp on a transport which, according to the International Red Cross, consisted of sick women who were expected to recover from their illness. Later, Anne and Margot both became ill with typhus and died in March 1945 during the horrendous epidemic in Bergen-Belsen. Both were buried in one of the unmarked mass graves at Bergen-Belsen.

The famous quote, which impressed this Texas student, was written in Anne’s diary, while she was in hiding in Amsterdam.

Here is the famous quote from her diary:

It’s difficult in times like these: ideals, dreams and cherished hopes rise within us, only to be crushed by grim reality. It’s a wonder I haven’t abandoned all my ideals, they seem so absurd and impractical. Yet I cling to them because I still believe, in spite of everything, that people are truly good at heart.

But this was not the only mistake made by the Texas students.  This quote is also from the news article:

Zachery Lerue’s model of Auschwitz included an important but gruesome detail: ashes of the dead, which fell on the ground and were walked on by the living prisoners at the concentration camp.

Apparently, Zachery didn’t do any research to find out if ashes flew out of the crematoria chimneys and fell on the ground.

Every Holocaust survivor book that you will ever read, and some that you won’t read, includes testimony that ashes were flying out of the crematoria chimneys when the Jews got off the train at Auschwitz-Birkeanau.

Could this be true? I had to look it up on this Wikipedia page where I found this quote:

Contrary to popular belief, the cremated remains are not ashes in the usual sense. After the incineration is completed, the dry bone fragments are swept out of the retort and pulverised by a machine called a Cremulator — essentially a high-capacity, high-speed blender — to process them into “ashes” or “cremated remains”,[43][44] although pulverisation may also be performed by hand.

Photos taken at Auschwitz-Birkenau do not show smoke, nor ashes, flying out of the crematoria chimneys.

German woman arrested for wearing an Auschwitz T-shirt

The photo above shows a woman in Germany wearing a T-shirt which says “University Auschwitz Est (established) 1941.”  An outline of the gate house into the Auschwitz-Birkeanu camp is shown in the middle.  The words “Final Solution” are on one side of the T-shirt.

I had to read this news article several times before I could understand what this news story was all about.  It is NOT about Auschwitz or the Holocaust; the story is about the Muslims living in Germany who are recruiting young German men to join a radical Islam group called Salafism.  I had no idea that there are thousands of Muslims in Germany and that they are recruiting young German men for jihad.

One thing that confused me is that Auschwitz was NOT established in 1941.  According to the US Holocaust Memorial Museum website, the three Auschwitz camps were established in 1940 and 1942, not in 1941.

This quote is from the news article:

German protester who wore ‘University of Auschwitz, 1941′ T-shirt faces prison
The unnamed woman wore the T-shirt during an anti-Islam rally in October [2014] in Cologne.

A woman in Germany could face up to five years in prison for inciting hatred after she was filmed at an anti-Islam rally wearing a T-shirt that compared the Auschwitz concentration camp to a university.

The woman, who has not been named under German privacy laws, was filmed at a demonstration last October wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with the words “University Auschwitz, est. 1941”.

Under a silhouette of one of the infamous Nazi extermination camp’s most distinctive buildings, the T-shirt listed possible courses of study as “genetics, racial science, Final Solution”.

More than 1.1 million Jews were systematically murdered at Auschwitz, along with tens of thousands of gypsies, Poles and Soviet prisoners-of-war. […]

[The woman and her husband] were taking part in a rally organised by a group calling itself Hooligans against Salafism, or HoGeSa, which claimed to be against the rise of hardline Salafist Islam in Germany.

Under Germany’s Volksverhetzung law, inciting hatred against sections of the population or assaulting people’s human dignity is punishable by up to five years in prison.

You can read about the “Final Solution” on my website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/EasternGermany/Wannsee/Wannsee01.html

When I first started reading books about the Holocaust, years ago, I noticed that the word Muselmann (pl. Muselmänner), which means a Muslim person, was frequently used by the Jewish prisoners to mean a person who was very skinny and starving to death because they were repeatedly shoved out of the food line by the stronger Jews.

Is this the revenge of the Muselmänner?  Are Muslims now converting young Germans to the Muslim religion so that they can kill German non-believers?

Former attorney Sylvia Stoltz convicted yet again of Holocaust denial

I previously wrote about Sylvia Stoltz in a blog post with the title Witch trials in Germany — yesterday and today. 

In Germany, Holocaust denial is called Volksverhetzung which, in English, means “Incitement of the Masses”  God forbid that anyone should incite the masses in Germany, which might result in the extermination of 6 million more Jews.

Today, I read a news story with the headline:

German Ex-Lawyer Convicted of Holocaust Denial in Munich

A former German attorney with well-known links to the far right has been convicted of Holocaust denial and sentenced to 20 months in prison.

Munich state court spokeswoman Andrea Titz said 51-year-old Sylvia Stolz was convicted of inciting racial hatred for denying the Holocaust in a 2012 speech. She argued during her trial that she was exercising her right to free speech.

Stolz already served time for Holocaust denial after a 2008 conviction related to her defense of notorious Holocaust denier Ernst Zundel, who was convicted himself of the crime in Mannheim in 2007.

Zundel’s initial Mannheim trial collapsed after Stolz was banned from the proceedings on grounds she was trying to sabotage them. During the trial, she repeatedly denied the Holocaust and ended a legal document with “Heil Hitler.”

Sylvia Stolz

Look up the word “Stolz” on google translate and you will learn that it means “proud” in English. Sylvia Stolz is not only a proud German woman, she is also very brave.  She has literally given up her career as a lawyer to defend Holocaust deniers in Germany.

Correct me if I am wrong, but as I recall, Sylvia Stolz also defended Germar Rudolf in court in Germany.

Holocaust denial is now a crime in 19 countries, but people still continue to deny the Holocaust.  Strangely, no one has ever been able to prove the Holocaust to the satisfaction of the deniers.

94-year-old former SS sergeant charged with 3,681 counts of accessory to murder at Auschwitz (updated)

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust — Tags: , — furtherglory @ 3:09 pm

Update  Feb. 24, 2015:

Former SS man who worked at Auschwitz main camp which has the sign "Arbeit Macht Frei"

Former SS man who worked at Auschwitz main camp which has the sign “Arbeit Macht Frei”

Quote from this news source:

Identified only as Hubert Z., a photo of him [shown above] in his Nazi S.S. uniform – emblazoned with the death’s head skull and double-lightning insignia of the feared military group – emerged today.

According to prosecutors in the city of Schwerin, north Germany, the now elderly man was a medical officer at Auschwitz.

He has been charged with complicity in the murders of 3,681 people with officials confident of a successful prosecution.

He is believed to have been an S.S. Unterscharfuehrer (junior squad leader) at the death camp in Nazi-occupied Poland where at least 1.1 million people, most of them Jewish, were systematically murdered during the Second World War.

The indictment against Hubert Z., who lives in the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern – the home state of Chancellor Angela Merkel – runs to 83 pages.

It is understood he was tracked down with the aid of the Simon Wiesenthal Nazi hunting agency in Israel and the Central Authority for the Prosecution of Nazi War Crimes in Germany.

“It is our contention that he underwrote the mass murder programme while in Auschwitz,” said a prosecutor.

It is known that the accused was born in the state where he lives and learned agriculture at college before he joined the S.S. in 1940.

He served as a medical orderly in the concentration camps of Sachsenhausen and Neuengamme in Germany before being sent to Auschwitz where his service records show that he commanded the S.S. medical service between 15 August and 14 September 1944.

My comment:  Note that Hubert Z. has a degree in agriculture and that he “underwrote the mass murder program”.  It’s been 70 years since he allegedly committed these crimes. Are the Jews getting him mixed up with  Heinrich Himmler, who also had a degree in agriculture and a first name that starts with an H.  How was such a low-level officer in the SS allowed to “underwrite” mass murder in the Auschwitz main camp, at a time when the gas chamber had been converted into a bomb shelter for the SS men?

Continue reading my original post:

A news story in the Guardian newspaper, which you can read in full here, claims that a former SS soldier will be put on trial for accessory to murder for the deaths of 3,681 people in the Auschwitz gas chamber.

The news article does not say that the murders took place at Auschwitz-Birkenau, but at Auschwitz, which I interpret to mean the main camp at the Auschwitz complex.   The photo that accompanied the article shows the main Auschwitz camp, which had a gas chamber, until it was converted, in 1944, to a bomb shelter for the SS men.

Auschwitz suspect charged in Germany on 3,681 counts
Former SS sergeant charged with 3,681 counts of accessory to murder in Nazi extermination camp.

German prosecutors have charged a 94-year-old man with 3,681 counts of accessory to murder over allegations he served in the Nazis’ Auschwitz death camp.

Stefan Urbanek, a spokesman for prosecutors in Schwerin, the capital of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, said on Monday that the suspect was an SS sergeant who served as a medic in an SS hospital in Auschwitz. In that role, Urbanek said the man helped the extermination camp function and could thus be charged as an accessory to the 1944 killings.

Urbanek would not release the suspect’s name, in line with privacy laws.

The man is one of 30 former Auschwitz suspects against whom federal investigators recommended in 2013 that state prosecutors pursue charges under a new precedent in German law.

The suspect’s lawyer, Peter-Michael Diestel, told the Bild newspaper that there was no evidence of any “concrete criminal act” by his client.

Someone please help me out here.  This man was an SS soldier who was working as a medic in the SS hospital, which was across the street from the Auschwitz gas chamber.

Were Jews taken to the SS hospital to be gassed in 1944 after the gas chamber was converted into a bomb shelter?

The photo below shows that the main Auschwitz camp is quite small.  The white building in the center was the camp kitchen.

The prisoners in the main camp were mostly political prisoners and illegal combatants.  There were very few Jews in the main Auschwitz camp.  I doubt that there were 3,681 Jews in the main camp at any time in the camp’s history.  Besides that, how is the exact number of Jewish deaths in the main camp known? The Nazis did not keep records of the names of people who were gassed.

Cincinnati, a city that once had a large German enclave, now has a Holocaust exhibit

Filed under: Holocaust — Tags: , , , , — furtherglory @ 10:38 am

You can read about the current Holocaust exhibit in Cincinnati in a news article here.

This quote is from the news article:

CINCINNATI — Visitors can explore the very depths of human cruelty — but also the heights of human hope and perseverance — at a new exhibit on the Holocaust [in Cincinnati] running through May 26.

“Unlocking the Gates of Auschwitz Seventy Years Later” opened in late January at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the liberation of perhaps the most infamous Nazi concentration camp of World War II. An estimated 1.1 million prisoners, most of them Jewish, died at the camp.

The story is told largely through the recollections of two Cincinnati-area residents who survived Auschwitz.

Bella Ouziel, 89, and Werner Coppel, 90, relate their experiences through video interviews interspersed with more than 100 concentration-camp documents, photographs and other artifacts.

Cincinnati, Ohio once had a famous German-American enclave called “Over the Rhine.”  That section of the city is no longer German-American and no one knows, nor cares, that Cincinnati was once famous for it’s large German-American community.  You can read about it on Wikipedia at

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Over-the-Rhine#German_neighborhood

This quote is from Wikipedia:

At the turn of the 20th century, the neighborhood population [of Over-the-Rhine]  reached a peak of 45,000 residents, with the proportion of German-Americans estimated at 75 percent.[7] By 1915 the more prosperous people left the dense city for the suburbs.[22] They were not replaced in as great numbers because new immigrants were attracted to fast-growing industrial cities in the Great Lakes region.[22] Over-the-Rhine became one of several old and declining neighborhoods that formed a ring of slums around the central business district.[22] Many people thought Over-the-Rhine would eventually disappear, swallowed up by the city’s growing business district.[18]

I previously blogged about the German-American town of Hermann, MO which now features Holocaust education in the schools.  https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2012/09/20/holocaust-education-comes-to-hermann-mo/

The Holocaust has taken over every aspect of American life.  All we ever hear about is the Holocaust and the survivors who are writing books, or out on the lecture circuit, teaching young people about the Holocaust religion.  Enough already!
