Auschwitz memorial site has a twitter account

“Everything is up to date in Kansas City” — and at the Auschwitz Memorial Site which now has a twitter account to honor the Jews who were killed there.

Sign at the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp says in English: “You are in a building where the SS murdered thousands of people. Please maintain silence here: remember their suffering and show respect for their memory.”

My photo below shows the signs at the location of an alleged gas chamber that was allegedly destroyed by the Nazis before they abandoned the camp. Or was it destroyed by the prisoners who stayed behind and hid when the prisoners were marched out of the camp by the Nazis? Who knows?

DOCTOR Josef Mengele gets no respect

Dr. Mengele is the man on the far left

Shown in the 1944 photo above, from left to right, are Dr. Josef Mengele, Richard Baer, Karl Hoecker, and Walter Schmidetski. Richard Baer, known as the last Commandant of Auschwitz, was the commander of the main camp; his adjutant was Karl Hoecker.

Dr. Josef Mengele was one of 30 SS officers at Auschwitz II, aka Birkenau, who allegedly decided who would live and who would die in the gas chambers. If selections were made by 30 SS men, this means that Dr. Mengele only made around 3% of the selections. Yet every Holocaust survivor claims that Dr. Mengele was on duty when they went through the selection process.

Dr. Josef Mengele was nicknamed the “Angel of Death” by the concentration camp prisoners because he had the face of an angel, yet he allegedly made selections for the gas chambers at Auschwitz.

DOCTOR Josef Mengele

One of the regular readers of my blog, who is a Holocaust denier, made a comment, in which he mentioned “Mengele” without using Dr. Mengele’s title of Doctor. Holocaust believers do not give Dr. Mengele the title of Doctor because they believe that Dr. Mengele made selections for the gas chamber.

Josef Mengele, Rudolf Hoess and Josef Kramer

Dr. Mengele had a Ph.D. in Anthropology as well as a degree in medicine, which he received in July 1938 from the University of Frankfurt. He earned his Ph.D. in 1935 with a thesis on “Racial Morphological Research on the Lower Jaw Section of Four Racial Groups.”

In January 1937, Dr. Mengele was appointed a research assistant at the Institute for Heredity, Biology and Racial Purity at the University of Frankfurt. He worked under Professor Otmar Freiherr von Verschuer, a geneticist who was doing research on twins.

As the war-time director of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute of Anthropology, Human Hereditary Teaching Genetics, located in Berlin, von Verschuer secured the funds for Dr. Mengele’s experiments at Auschwitz. The results of Dr. Mengele’s research on twins was sent to this Institute. The grant for Dr. Mengele’s genetic research was authorized by the German Research Council in August 1943.

Dr. Mengele was very nice to the little children in the camp, yet he allegedly experimented on them as though they were laboratory rats. He volunteered to do the selections at Birkenau, even when it wasn’t his turn, because he wanted to find subjects for his medical research on genetic conditions and hereditary diseases, which he had already begun before the war. He particularly wanted to find twins for the research that he had started before he was posted to Auschwitz-Birkenau.

Dr. Josef Mengele is the man on the far left

Dr. Josef Mengele was one of 30 SS officers at Auschwitz II, aka Birkenau, who allegedly decided who would live, and who would die in the gas chambers. The other 29 officers were probably not as handsome, nor as charming, as Dr. Mengele, so they never became famous.

Dr. Mengele had arrived at Auschwitz-Birkenau in early May 1943, just at the time that the second typhus epidemic was starting. Dr. Mengele himself contracted typhus while he was at Birkenau.

Dr. Mengele was known by all the prisoners because of his good looks and charm. According to Gerald L. Posner and John Ware, the authors of “Mengele, the Complete Story,” many of the children in the Birkenau camp “adored Mengele” and called him “Uncle Pepi.”

Vera Alexander, a survivor of Birkenau, said that Dr. Mengele brought chocolate and the most beautiful clothes for the children, including hair ribbons for the little girls.

Olga Lengyel, a prisoner at the Birkenau camp, wrote in her book entitled “Five Chimneys” that she had heard about Dr. Mengele from the other inmates before she saw him. Lengyel wrote that she had heard that Dr. Mengele was “good-looking” but she was surprised by how “really handsome” he was.

Lengyel wrote, regarding Dr. Mengele: “Though he was making decisions that meant extermination, he was as pleasantly smug as any man could be.”

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

A 94-year-old former Auschwitz guard has been convicted of being an accessory to the murder of at least 170,000 people, at the end of what is likely to be one of Germany’s last Holocaust trials.

Reinhold Hanning was sentenced to five years’ jail for facilitating the slaughter at the death camp in Nazi-occupied Poland, having served at Auschwitz during the Second World War between January 1942 and June 1944. He had faced a maximum sentence of 15 years.

During his four-month trial, Hanning admitted serving as an Auschwitz guard. He said he was ashamed that he was aware Jews were being killed but did nothing to try to stop it.

End quote

Herr Hanning appears to be in excellant health. I believe that Hanning will be able to serve his time in prison. All of the many Holocaust survivors, who are still alive, will be very happy with this verdict. REVENGE, REVENGE, REVANGE — the motto of the Jews.

The 6 million number never changes, no matter what

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 10:28 am

“…into the valley of death rode the 600 6 million…”  Source

The number of Jews who died in the Holocaust [6 million] remains the same, no matter what new evidence is found.

The number of Jews killed at Auschwitz was originally 4 million, according to testimony given at the Nuremberg International Military Tribunal; now that number is officially down to 1.1 million.

The number of deaths given for Majdanek was originally 1.5 million, but the number of Jewish deaths has been reduced to 59,000.

You can read about the 6 million Jews on this website.

The caption underneath the photo above reads:

On May 14, 1946, Rudolf Hoess, the former commandant of Auschwitz, signed a declaration stating that during his tenure in office, 2 million Jews had been gassed at Auschwitz and another 500,000 killed in other ways. Hoess overestimated the number of Jews gassed by about 1 million.

There have been allegations that this confession was obtained from Rudolf Hoess by means of torture. Rupert Butler wrote in his book entitled Legions of Death, published by Arrow Books in London in 1983, that Hoess had been beaten for three days by a British team of torturers under the command of Jewish interrogator Bernard Clarke.

In 1946, Rudolf Hoess, the former Auschwitz commandant, was put on trial in Poland; he was charged with the murder of “around 300,000 people held at the camp as prisoners and entered into the camp’s records and around 4,000,000 people, mainly Jews, who were brought to the camp in transports from other European countries for immediate extermination and thus not listed in the camp’s records.” During his trial, Hoess changed the figure in his confession to a total of 1,130,000 Jews that were gassed but declared “During my tenure at Auschwitz, millions of people died, whose exact number I cannot determine.”

Rudolf Hoess wrote in his autobiography that Obersturmbannführer Adolf Eichmann and his deputy were the only ones who knew the total number of Jews that were gassed at Auschwitz-Birkenau because Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler had ordered the records to be burned after every special action. The Nazis always used code words when talking about the genocide of the Jews: a mass gassing was called a “special action.”

In the last days of World War II, shortly before Berlin was surrounded by Soviet troops, Eichmann allegedly told Hoess that 2.5 million Jews had been murdered at Auschwitz Birkenau. Eichmann was an SS Lt. Col. who was the head of Department IV, B-4, the section of the Reich Central Security Office (RSHA) in Berlin, which was responsible for deporting the Jews. It was Adolf Eichmann who was in charge of deporting the Jews on the trains to the death camps.

According to the Auschwitz Museum, no records of the number of prisoners who died at Auschwitz-Birkenau have ever been found.

In order to avoid going to prison for 5 years in 19 different countries which have laws against Holocaust denial, you must believe in the 6 million, even though the numbers no longer add up.

Empty cannisters of Zyklon-B prove the Holocaust

Empty Zyklon-B cans found at Auschwitz (Click to enlarge)

Empty Zyklon-B cans found at Auschwitz (Click to enlarge)

The title of my blog post today comes from a line in a newspaper article, written by Michael Curtis, which you can read in full here:

http://www.algemeiner.com/2015/04/27/holocaust-denial-is-real-and-frightening/

The newspaper article begins with this quote:

Everyone – except the idiots of the world – knows the truth about Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest of the Nazi death camps, and the one where an estimated 1.3 million people were murdered. It is preserved as it was in January 1945 when the camp was liberated. The gas chambers at Birkenau were destroyed by the Nazis to remove evidence of their atrocities. But the reminders of the horrors are the plentiful human hair, shoes, suitcases, and eyeglasses of the victims. Above all, there are the empty canisters of Zyklon B poison, and evidence of documentation of the Nazi planning of the genocide, mostly – at least 90 percent- against Jews.

Take that, all you deniers out there! Why would there be thousands of empty Zyklon-B cans at Auschwitz-Birkenau, if there were no gas chambers? The most amazing thing is that the Nazis didn’t even bother to haul away this incriminating evidence of the gassing of the Jews.

Zyklon-B was used to kill the lice in the clothing of prisoners in all the concentration camps. Lice spread typhus, a deadly disease, which was prevalent in all the camps.

I wrote a previous blog post about Zyklon-B being used at Auschwitz-Birkenau to disinfect the clothing: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/tag/zyklon-b/

Stains on the wall of a disinfection building  at Auschwitz-Birkenau

My photo above shows the stains on the outside of a disinfection building at Auschwitz-Birkenau. These stains were caused by the use of Zyklon-B to disinfect the clothing of the prisoners and the bedding in the bunk buildings. There were several buildings, like this, at Birkenau where the clothing of the prisoners was disinfected with Zyklon-B. The last time that I was at Auschwitz-Birkenau in 2005, these buildings were off limits; tourists were not allowed to see how Zyklon-B was used to save the lives of prisoners.

The news article ends with this quote:

Begin quote

The idiots [Holocust deniers] have had some success. According to an ADL 2014 Survey, 35 percent of those surveyed in 100 countries said they had never heard of the Holocaust and 32 percent believe it is a myth or has been greatly exaggerated. Even if one agrees that censorship is undesirable, the difficult question arises again. Should the Holocaust deniers, not intellectually respectable and historically fraudulent, be banned or punished? France has censored the comedian Dieudonne for his spreading of racism, anti-Semitism, and Holocaust denial, and has emphasized the urgency to deal with manifestations of anti-Semitism. The secret meeting in London, expounding the Protocol of the Elders of Anti-Semitism, shows that all societies should engage in that urgent task.

Holocaust survivor identifies herself in famous photo taken after Auschwitz-Birkenau was liberated

la-2414823-me-adv-beat-holocaust-friends-03-cmh-j-20141206Paula Lebovics is shown, at the age of 6, in the front row of the photo above.

Paula is also shown in the photo below, which is a still shot from a film taken by the Soviet liberators of Auschwitz-Birkenau.

She is the third child from the left in the middle row of the photo below.

Berkenau survivors

You can read a recent news article, in the LA Times, about Paula Lebovics here.

This quote is from the news article in the LA Times:

[Paula] Lebovics is Jewish and a Holocaust survivor, liberated at age 11 from Birkenau concentration camp. On her left forearm, she bears the Nazis’ tattooed identification number.
Lebovics was 6, living in Ostrowiec, Poland, when World War II abruptly destroyed her childhood.  […]

That little girl [Paula Lebovics] had seen public hangings, snow stained red by blood and the skies above her camp turned crimson by smoke from the ovens that ran all day, spewing out residue that stuck to her skin. […]

Birkenau had been liberated. A Russian soldier, in tears, had lifted Lebovics up and rocked her in his arms. Not a parent, not a relative, just a fellow human being reaching out.

There is no photo of Paula being carried, but the photo below shows a young boy being carried in the arms of a Russian soldier.

I previously blogged about photos that promote Holocaust denial in this blog post: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2014/05/17/beware-of-illustrating-news-articles-with-photos-that-promote-holocaust-denial/

How did all these children in the photos above, including Paula Lebovics, survive the famous DEATH CAMP known as Auschwitz-Birkenau?

Everybody knows that children under the age of 15 were immediately sent to the left to the gas chamber by Dr. Josef Mengele, unless they were twins, who could serve as subjects for his experiments.

Why was Paula allowed to live after she had witnessed the “skies above her camp turned crimson by smoke from the ovens that ran all day”?

Why is Paula still alive today, at the age of 81, after her ordeal in Auschwitz-Birkenau?  Did Dr. Mengele use some “special treatment” to make sure that Paula lived, so that she could testify against the Nazis 70 years after the camp was liberated?

Old women were liberated by Russian soldiers at Auschwitz-Birkeanu

Adults over the age of 45 were automatically sent to the gas chambers at Auschwitz-Birkenau, according to the official Holocaust story. Except for the old ladies in the photo above, who were allowed to live.

This blog post is beginning to sound like a Geico commercial, so I am going to sign off now.  (Well, do you know that children as young as 6 were allowed to live in the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp?)

The amazing journey of William Schick — from the Nazi death camps to the good life in America

Filed under: Holocaust — Tags: , , , , — furtherglory @ 9:39 am

You can read the tale of William Schick on Don Moore’s War Tales website here. Schick died on New Year’s Eve in 2010, at the age of 90, in Gloucester, MA in the USA.  Schick is shown below in his back yard at his winter home in Venice, Florida. (Photo credit: Don Moore)

WilliamSchick

William Schick was a young Jew, living in Prague, Czechoslovakia, innocently minding his own business, when he was sent, as one of the first prisoners, to the concentration camp formerly known as Theresienstadt.  After spending time in Theresienstadt, which Schick called a “show camp,” he was sent in 1941 to the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp where prisoners were expected to live for only three months, according to the War Tales article.

At Auschwitz-Birkenau, Schick was put into the Czech family camp, where men, women and children lived together; this section of Auschwitz-Birkenau was called B11b or B2B. You can read about the Czech family camp and the selections for the gas chamber on my website here.

This quote is from the article about William Schick on the War Tales website:

After three months at Auschwitz, a prisoner’s time was up.

“They told everyone in Camp B2B we were going to be sent to Germany as slave laborers, but we had to clean up and shower first and we’d be issued new uniforms,” he said. “When we reached what the guards said were the ‘showers’ there was a commotion going on. I could speak a little German and I heard the guards say something was ‘kaput.’”

He learned later the apparatus that filled the showers with poison gas was ‘kaput.’ The prisoners from B2B had escaped death. They were marched back to their barracks. Three days later they were marched back to the gas chambers to die.

“We were just about to go into the gas chambers once more and there was another commotion out front.

“A train with 10,000 Jews from Hungry had just arrived. They had no place to put them. We were sent back to our barracks once again. They marched all 10,000 Hungarian Jews into the three gas chambers at Auschwitz and killed them all in 24 hours.”

[…]

The third call-up for Schick and the other Jews in B2B was ordered by Dr. Josef Mengele, the notorious “Angel of Death.” He checked them out to determine if they lived or died.

“When Dr. Mengele came to our camp, we had to stand before him completely naked. We were nothing but skin and bones,” Schick said.

“He was dressed to kill,” no pun intended. “He was unbelievable in his tailor-made uniform and handcrafted boots. I could see myself in his shiny, black boots as I stood for 10 or 15 seconds before him while he looked me over.”

He signaled with one thumb that Schick was to join those in the right line. Those in Schick’s line looked healthier. The less healthy prisoners in the left line would be sent to the gas chambers.

William Schick was saved from the Nazi gas chambers THREE times; what are the odds of that?  Actually, it was not at all unusual for Jews to escape the gas chamber multiple times. Every Holocaust survivor has a story to tell about how he or she survived the gas chambers at Auschwitz. Some survivors were saved from the gas chamber as many as six times.  What a sloppy way to conduct a genocide!  Hitler would be turning over in his grave, if he had a grave.
