The real story of the Dachau gas chamber, according to Carlo Mattogno

Filed under: Dachau, Germany, Holocaust — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 11:32 am

A big THANK YOU to The Black Rabbit of Inlé, who directed me to an article about the Dachau gas chamber, written by Carlo Mattogno, who is a  famous Holocaust expert.

The article is quite long, so I am going to start by quoting from the very end of the article:

Here we come to the problem of fake showers. The sources cited above say that, originally, the showers were real. By whom and why were then installed the current fake showers?

First we must examine why these showers [at Dachau] are fake. The photograph was taken by me [Carlo Mattogno] of the Image 37 in 1990 to a shower pommel torn from the ceiling. Remains the external sheet and the center we see a circle that can be the outlet of a water pipe. The Picture 38, a photograph taken by Thomas Dalton in 2011 49, shows the recess in the ceiling that contained a pommel shower. Even here, at the center, there is a circle that looks like a metal water pipe dented.

The above quote from the article by Mattagno is followed by several photos, which look like photos that I took at Dachau and put on my website.

My photos above show the bins on the outside wall of the Dachau gas chamber, which I believe were added by the Americans after they liberated the Dachau camp.

I am very pleased that Mattogno seems to agree with me that my photos show work that was done by the Americans AFTER the camp was liberated.

Mattogno wrote the following, regarding the windows:

In this context, it remains important that the last element to be analyzed is constituted by the two windows. They were built just to pour into the room from the outside a can of Zyklon B?

It is unknown when and why they were built the two windows. Although, in principle, they can serve as devices for payment of Zyklon B, can be expressed reservations about the fact that they were conceived for this purpose.

The following quote is also from Mattogno’s article:

Even the size of the windows appear ridiculous: for what purpose to create openings in the local high70 cm? In addition, the device is quite plain compared to the estimated construction cumbersome the “gas chamber”: Zyklon-B pellets thrown on the floor, with the risk, as I explained above, that would end directly in the grids runoff.

This is similar to what I wrote on my website about the windows in the Dachau gas chamber. Putting the Zyklon-B pellets on the floor, near the drains in the gas chamber shower room, would have made it easy for the victims to push the pellets down the floor drains.

This quote is also from Mattogno’s article:

The film shot by the Americans at Dachau (Picture 45) 61 shows a fence, like a small shack on the outside of the “gas chamber”, at the two windows above. Front has amassed a huge pile of corpses. This corresponds to the description of Captain Fribourg, who, on May 25, 1945, mentioned precisely a “palisade”, inaccessible because of storage of corpses. It is worth noting that these corpses had been there for more than three weeks, since there were already April 29.

I don’t think  that the corpses were in front of the wooden structure on the day that the camp was liberated. I think that the photo of the corpses was taken a few days AFTER the liberation of the camp.

I wrote about the bodies and the wooden structure on this previous blog post: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2012/07/16/wooden-enclosure-found-at-dachau-baracke-x-by-american-liberators/

In a previous blog post, I criticized Carlo Mattagno for using Eugen Siebold as a source. In this new article by Mattagno, I found the following  quote:

The declaration of [Eugen] Seibold, as regards the true showers and the new ceiling of the “gas chamber”, remains enigmatic.

One of the fundamental problems of the “gas chamber” at Dachau is the fact that, despite being allegedly completed and functional, was never used. Above I mentioned that the crown of the plant, in the perspective Holocaust, is the fence that covered the two small windows, so that prying eyes could not see the operation of the payment of cans of Zyklon B into hoppers metal. If this were true, the “gas chamber” was now ready for use. Why, then, a “gas chamber” so sophisticated and cumbersome, which was undoubtedly cost much money and labor, was never used? So far they have been provided with the most convoluted conjectures (the “sabotage” of detainees, the fear of the population of the town of Dachau, etc.), But no one has given a convincing answer.

The most convincing answer is that the “gas chamber” was never used because it was not a “gas chamber”.

What Pressac says about the behavior of Americans is more plausible. They went to Dachau with the preconception that there should be a gas chambers (as explained in my first article) and made a play of disinfestation chambers with clothes hanging in front of them and the local “Brausebad” Next, considering the documentation on Zentrallbauleitung relative the the crematorium , they realized that their representation was unfounded and then “lightened” documentation “discarding” documents that shed light on the history of the alleged “gas chamber”

When they finally deign to make public all the documentation, you can answer with certainty to all questions that I raised above.

In his article, Mattogno included a photo similar to my photo below, except that his photo is reversed. I don’t understand why he reversed the photo.

What is the truth about the infamous Aktion Erntefest at Majdanek?

Prisoners allegely marching to their death at Majdanek

Prisoners allegedly marching to their death at Majdanek

Erntefest, or Harvest Festival in English, is the title given to the alleged execution of 18,000 Jews in only nine hours on November 3, 1943 at the Majdanek concentration camp in Lublin, Poland.  I wrote about this event on my website, after visiting the Majdanek Memorial Site in October 1998.  You can read about it on Wikipedia here.

There has been some discussion in the comments section of my blog about this event.  I thought that the famous Erntefest was a proven fact, but others have doubted it.

I finally did a search to find out what Carlo Mattogno has to say about it.  I consider Mattogno to be the foremost Holocaust revisionist and the most reliable Holocaust historian, because he seems to me to be completely unbiased.  Not that other revisionists are biased, but Mattogno is noted for being completely unbiased.

I found an article here which mentions Mattogno and the famous Erntefest at Majdanek.

The following quote is from the article:

My Italian friend Carlo Mattogno – who is doubtless the world’s foremost expert on the ‘Holocaust’ – and I have decided to do the work all other historians have failed to accomplish. Our book, KL Majdanek. Eine historische und technische Studie has been published in German. (4)

In June 1997, Mattogno and I spent time in Lublin. Our book is essentially based upon the following sources:

– Documents found in Russian archives in 1995 (5);

– Documents found in the archives of Majdanek museum, as well as in the archives of the city of Lublin;

– The Polish literature;

– Practical investigation on the ground of the former concentration camp.

Unfortunately, the documentation about the Lublin camp is by no means as complete as the historian would desire; many documents are missing or were destroyed before the liberation of the camp. Therefore, it would be quite difficult to write a ‘history of Majdanek.’

To mention but one example, we do not know how many prisoners were deported to Majdanek during the almost three years of its existence, and we have to content ourselves with estimates. Still, the extant documents permit us to determine the death figure of the camp with reasonable accuracy and to refute the myth of the homicidal gas chambers as well as the legend of the mass shooting allegedly perpetrated in November 1943.

If Mattogno refutes the “legend” of the mass shooting, that’s good enough for me.

When I visited the Majdanek camp in 1998, I had a private tour guide, who drove me there in her car. The camp was originally built just outside the city of Lublin, but when I visited, the camp was inside the city limits. We were driving down a street, that was a major road in Poland, when  all of a sudden, my tour guide said to me:  “Look over there. That’s the Commandant’s house.”

Then I saw the huge monument that is very near the road.  I was so taken aback that I had a hard time operating my camera, and I didn’t get a good photo of it. I borrowed the photos below.

The ashes of the 18,000 prisoners who were allegedly killed are under the dome, shown in the photo below. On the right, in the photo, there is one of the original wooden guard towers.  The three objects on the left side are toilets for the tourists, which are the source of a very foul smell.

The point that I am trying to make, in showing the photos above, is that the monuments at the Majdanek Memorial Site are way over the top.  I have since learned that the Majdanek camp was not a major extermination camp, and  probably not an extermination camp at all.

This quote is from the article which you can read in full here:

According to the orthodox ‘Holocaust’ historians, the Germans set up six ‘extermination camps’ in Poland where Jews were systematically murdered in gas chambers. One of these purported extermination centres was Majdanek, near the city of Lublin.

The ‘Holocaust’ historians claim that Majdanek served both as a labour camp and a murder factory. Between September 1942 and October 1943, the Germans are supposed to have gassed large numbers of Jewish prisoners, partly by means of Zyklon-B, partly by means of carbon monoxide. Moreover, the Germans are accused of having shot about 18,000 Jews at Majdanek on November 3, 1943. This was allegedly the beastliest mass murder ever committed in any German concentration camp on a single day.

Tens of thousands of books have been published about the ‘Holocaust.’ One would therefore expect to find an abundance of scientific studies about these six alleged mass murder sites. In reality, the exterminationist historians have almost exclusively focused their attention upon Auschwitz. Much to his dismay, the would-be-student of Majdanek quickly discovers that there is not a single serious book about this camp in any western language!

The original claim, by the Soviet Union, was that 1.7 million people had been killed at Majdanek.  Now that figure has been OFFICIALLY reduced to 78,000, including 59,000 Jews. I am ready to concede that the figure for the Erntefest should be reduced, from 18,000, to perhaps 180 prisoners who were killed.

There is a famous photo of prisoners being marched to their death at Majdanek, which you can see at the top of my blog post.

Years ago, when I visited the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles, CA, there was a man at the entrance to the underground parking lot, who looked remarkably like the man in the lower left corner of the photo.  He was stopping all the cars, in order to determine if it was safe to allow the occupants inside the museum.

Did the man in the photo survive and make his way to Los Angeles,  where he is now living the good life in America, like so many other Holocaust survivors?  Anything is possible.

Doubting the Holocaust could soon be a crime in Italy

Italy is one of the last countries in Europe to allow freedom of speech with regard to the Holocaust, but that might soon change, according to a blog post, which I have quoted below.

Famous Holocaust deniers and a possible future Holocaust denial prison

Famous Holocaust deniers and a photo of a possible future Holocaust Revisionist Penitentiary

Begin quote from the post, written by a fellow blogger:

Freedom of thought and expression is under threat in Italy, as Italian turn-coats in Parliament introduced a new amendment to the country’s criminal code that would make doubting the sacred “holocaust” a crime.

The legislation was signed Tuesday by politicians across several parties, including the center-left “Democratic” Party, the center-right People of “Freedom” Party and the anti-establishment Five Star Movement, ANSA reported.

“It would be a significant response to all those episodes of revisionism, alas all too present in Italy and in Europe, that seek to distort history and memory,” said “Democratic” Party Sen. Monica Cirinna.

The demented Italian politician relished at the prospect of jailing people for having the wrong “attitude,” adding: “A hateful attitude, which now becomes a prosecutable crime.”

“Hateful attitude” is a Zionist code word for non-compliance with Jewish supremacy.

Holocaust denial is already either implicitly or explicitly illegal in 17 countries, including Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Israel, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Switzerland and Romania.

However, Italian law makers will not try to outlaw skepticism of Communist or Zionist atrocities, only the questionable holocaust story.

Zionist psychopaths are very pleased with the new developments.

End Quote

I was horrified when I read the blog post which I have quoted above.

The most highly respected Holocaust Revisionist is Carlo Mattogno, who is an Italian citizen, if I am not mistaken.  Even if he is a citizen of another country now, he could be renditioned to Italy for trial, the same way that Germar Rudolf was renditioned to Germany, where he was “persecuted” for Holocaust denial.

I have read some of the writing of Carlo Mattogno, and he definitely DOES NOT  have a “hateful attitude.”  Just the opposite.  The writing of Carlo Mattogno is remarkable for its lack of hatred.

In a trial of a “Holocaust denier” in Germany, there is no defense.  Note the photo of Sylvia Stolz in the group photo at the top of this page.  Stolz is a lawyer, who was put in prison because she defended her client, a Holocaust denier, who was on trial.

If Italy does pass a law against Holocaust denial, aka Holocaust Revisionism, it will probably include a clause which says that the Holocaust is the truth, and there is no defense against the law, for that reason.  In Germany, the Holocaust is “manifestly obvious.”

The Holocaust is not “obvious” to men like Germar Rudolf and Carlo Mattogno.

You can read below what Mattogno wrote about himself and his research on the Holocaust:

My own contributions to the progress of revisionism began in 1985 with the publication of Il rapporto Gerstein. Anatomia di un falso,[27] for which I used the copious wealth of archival documentation, which I had been able to identify in the preceding years. In January of 1984, at a time when the work was already finished, I sent a few selected pages to Pierre Guillaume to allow him to judge the contents, hoping that it could be published in French. Towards the end of the month, I received an answer from Prof. Faurisson in the name of P. Guillaume, stating his appreciation of the extract I had sent and saying that they had been “très agréablement surpris” (very pleasantly surprised) to discover a text which was “manifestement de haute qualité scientifique” (obviously of high scientific quality). This praise caused me to persevere in revisionist studies.

Until the end of 1989, I maintained a correspondence with various archives in Europe, America, and Israel and received by mail the documents I needed. In 1989, I made my first visit to the Museum and the Camp at Auschwitz and began to collect directly the photocopies of the original documents in the archives. This work resulted in the book Auschwitz: la prima gasazione,[28] a critical and detailed analysis refuting the alleged first homicidal gassing in the basement of Block 11 of the Auschwitz camp, which had served as a model of further assumed gassings. In 1994, I published a reply to the second book on Auschwitz by Jean-Claude Pressac[29], entitled Auschwitz fine di una leggenda.[30] Together with the refutation by Prof. Faurisson and contributions by other scholars it was included in the work organized and edited by Germar Rudolf Auschwitz: Nackte Fakten. Eine Erwiderung an Jean-Claude Pressac.[31]

From 1995 on, I had access to the documents in Moscow and elsewhere, as I mentioned above. Thanks to these sources, I wrote a book on the structure and operation of the Central Construction Office at Auschwitz, entitled La “Zentralbauleitung der Waffen-SS und Polizei Auschwitz,”[32] as well as an essay under the title “Sonderbehandlung” ad Auschwitz. Genesi e significato,[33] both containing a wealth of documents in the appendix, and finally an extensive two-volume work on the history and the technicalities of the cremation ovens at Auschwitz, not yet published. From June 1997 onwards, many of my articles appeared also in the journal Vierteljahreshefte für freie Geschichtsschreibung, and since 2003 also in the English sister magazine The Revisionist. The fact that my correspondence with Prof. Faurisson ceased in 1995, the year in which I first visited the Moscow archives together with Jürgen Graf and Russell Granata, is not just a coincidence. From that time on, our positions with respect to the tasks of revisionist research and to the value of historical results achieved by it were too far apart and collisions were inevitable.

If Carlo Mattogno is living in Italy, he had better get out of that country FAST.  America is probably the only safe haven left for Holocaust revisionists.

It has gotten to the point where even bloggers are sent to prison for denying the Holocaust, as reported in this news article, about a Swiss blogger, who was convicted of Holocaust denial:  http://www.jewishpress.com/news/breaking-news/swiss-blogger-sentenced-for-denying-holocaust/2013/08/01/
