Heinrich Himmler,”the monster in the round spectacles”

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 10:14 am

The title of my blog post today comes from an article which you can read in full at

http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/diary-reveals-heinrich-himmler-enjoyed-back-rub-before-killings/news-story/d190b719131293ada01bd5d931ec12a7

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

Himmler had been the one responsible for the introduction of gas chambers, after ordering that more “efficient” ways be found to complete his assigned task of killing Europe’s 11 million Jews.

The scale and horror of the task, however, did not daunt [Himmler] the monster in the round spectacles.

Himmler, like Hitler, liked to rise late and work well into the evening or the early hours.

A typical day, according to his diaries, began with a two-hour massage from Dr Felix Kersten to prepare for his day.

Another daily feature, dutifully recorded in his diary, were [was] his phone calls home to “Mammi and Puppi” — his pet names for wife Margarete and daughter Gudrun.

End quote

I had a childhood friend, whose nickname was “Poopie” which is the way that the word Puppi is pronounced. Correct me if I am wrong, but I think that the word Puppi means “little doll” in German.

The German word Mammi is pronounced the same as the English word Mommie, as far as I know. However, I believe that the German word Mutti, pronounced Mooty, was used more often back then.

The following quote is also from the news article:

Begin quote

The diaries cover 1938 as well as the crucial war years of 1943 and 1944. Historians studying them say they are “of shudderingly outstanding historical significance”.

Again, the understated nature of the entries about hugely significant events is staggering. For example, entries for October 4, 1943, recorded a visit to Poznan, in occupied Poland, for a series of meetings, lunch and, “17.30: speech to SS officers”.

The speech, in fact, was Himmler’s most explicit public description of the Holocaust, in which he described the SS’s mission as “the extermination of the Jewish race”.

He congratulated himself and the rest of the SS for carrying out this “difficult duty” while still being “decent fellows”.

End quote

After the war, Heinrich Himmler tried to escape by putting on a Wehrmacht uniform and a patch over one eye, but he was captured by the British Army about two weeks after the Germans surrendered.

Himmler allegedly committed suicide by biting down on a cyanide capsule, that he had managed to keep hidden in his mouth while eating a sandwich during his interrogation by the British.

Himmler’s daughter did not believe that her father committed suicide. Himmler and his daughter, Gudrun, are shown in the photo below.

The story is that Himmler had a cyanide capsule hidden in a hole in one of his back teeth. However, his daughter said that Himmler had a perfect set of teeth with no cavities nor holes.

The following quote is from a news article which you can read in full at

http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/nazi-monster-heinrich-himmler-described-8548665

Begin quote:

Yesterday the [British newspaper called the Daily] Mirror told how notes belonging to the architect of the Nazi death camps had come to light in a military archive near Moscow.

[These papers came to light many years ago.]

Now it can be revealed an innocent entry on October 4, 1943, in occupied Poland – entitled “Group Leader meeting” – is Himmler outlining the Jewish extermination programme to underlings who carried out the Holocaust.

He told officers in no uncertain terms: “I am talking about the evacuation of the Jews, the extermination of the Jewish people.

“It is one of those things that is easily said. ‘The Jewish people is [are] being exterminated,’ every Party member will tell you, ‘perfectly clear, it’s part of our plans, we’re eliminating the Jews, exterminating them, a small matter.’

End quote

What was the German word that Hitler used, which was translated into the English word exterminate?

Here is the English translation of Himmler’s Posen speech, with the original words between brackets like this < >

Begin quote from Himmler’s Posen speech:

I am thinking now of the evacuation <Evakuierung> of the Jews, the extermination <Ausrottung> of the Jewish people. It is one of those things that’s easy to say: “The Jewish people will be exterminated” <wird ausgerottet>, says every Party comrade, “that’s quite clear, it’s in our program: elimination <Ausschaltung> of the Jews, extermination <Ausrottung>; that’s what we’re doing.” And then they all come along, these 80 million good Germans, and every one of them has his decent Jew.

Of course, it’s quite clear that the others are pigs, but this one is one first-class Jew. Of all those who speak this way, not one has looked on; not one has lived through it. Most of you know what it means when 100 bodies lie together, when 500 lie there, or if 1,000 lie there. To have gone through this, and at the same time, apart from exceptions caused by human weaknesses, to have remained decent, that has made us hard.

This is a chapter of glory in our history which has never been written, and which never shall be written; since we know how hard it would be for us if we still had the Jews, as secret saboteurs, agitators, and slander-mongers, among us now, in every city — during the bombing raids, with the suffering and deprivations of the war.

We would probably already be in the same situation as in 1916/17 if we still had the Jews in the body of the German people.

End quote

I lived in Germany for two years after World War II, and I heard the German people use the word “ausrotten” many times in a conversation.  It was “ausrotten” this and “ausrotten” that. I understood the word to mean “get rid of”. It was used in a sentence many times when the word obviously meant to “get rid of,” not to kill.

I did not take German when I was in college, but my husband did. He would try to speak, in German, to the German people, but they could not understand a word that he said.

In those years, nearly everyone in Germany spoke English, and they preferred to speak English because Americans did not pronounce German words correctly, according them.

Many years after I came back from Germany, I took a college class in German. I still remembered  a little bit of German from my time in Germany, but the teacher would not accept my German. She insisted that I speak like an American speaking German.

Two of the students in my German class made a trip to Germany shortly before the class ended. When they came back, they said that the German people could not understand a word that they said.  Told you so! In Germany, German is spoken differently.

the famous letter from Sigman Rascher to Himmler

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 3:14 pm

A letter written by Sigman Rascher to Heinrich Himmler is used by Holocaust True Believers to prove that there was a homicidal gas chamber at Dachau.

The letter is quoted below, first in German and then in English.

Esteemed Reichsführer! [Himmler]

Wie Sie wissen, wird im KL Dachau dieselbe Einricht[ung] wie in Linz gebaut. Nachdem die “Invalidentransporte” sowieso in bestimmten Kammern enden, frage ich, ob nicht in diesen Kammern an der sowieso dazu bestimmten Personen dieWirkung unserer verschiedenen Kampfgase erprobt werden kann? Bis jetzt liegen nur Tierversuche bezw. Berichte ueber Unfaelle bei Herrstellung dieser Gase vor. Wegen dieses Absatzes schicke ich den Brief als “Geheimsache.”
(signed)
S. Rascher 28

The English translation of the body of the letter is as follows:

As you know, the same installation as in Linz [Austria] is to be built in Dachau. As the ‘invalid transports’ terminate in the special chambers [in Linz] anyway I wondered if it would be possible to test the effects of our combat gases in these chambers [in Dachau] using the persons who are destined for those chambers anyway. The only reports which are available so far are for experiments on animals or of accidents in the manufacture of these gases.

What role did Albrecht Speer play in the Holocaust?

One of the readers of my blog asked this in a comment: “So you think that [Albrect] Speer should be prosecuted for what he did?  What did he do wrong?”

What did Albrect Speer do wrong? Part of what he did wrong was that he was Adolf Hitler’s best friend.  Speer was guilty by association.

In 1933, the airfield called the Zeppelin Field, which was outside the Nuremberg city center, was first used for the annual Nazi party rally because it offered a huge space for party members to gather and listen to the nationalistic speeches of Hitler, the party leader.

Heinrich Himmler stands behind Hitler was the first party rally

According to Albert Speer, Hitler’s architect, in his Memoirs entitled Inside the Third Reich, the first Nazi Party Rally was held at the Zeppelin field in 1933, after Hitler was appointed Chancellor of the Reich.

As Hitler’s official architect, Speer was commissioned to design a temporary reviewing stand at the Zeppelin Field. He designed a gigantic eagle with a wingspread of over 100 feet. “I spiked it to a timber framework like a butterfly in a collection,” Speer wrote.

Albrecht Speer designed this huge monument at the Zepplin Field

Speer wrote, in his autobiography, that he had designed the Tribüne at the Zeppelin Field so that it would still look beautiful even “after generations of neglect, overgrown with ivy, its columns fallen, the walls crumbling here and there, but the outlines still clearly recognizable.”

Speer was tried by the International Military Tribunal in Nuremberg in 1945; he was convicted and served 20 years in Spandau prison for his part in the “common plan” of the Nazis to commit war crimes. Speer was the man in charge of the forced labor camps in Germany during the war. In a footnote in his book, Speer mentioned that the Palace of Justice was repaired, in preparation for the International Military Tribunal, by the forced labor of the defeated Germans.

In September 1938, the last peacetime rally had taken place at Nuremberg. This was the largest Nazi rally ever held; there were around 700,000 members of various Nazi organizations which took part in the festivities which lasted for a week.

On Saturday, September 10, 1938, over 800,000 members of the Hitler Youth marched into the Nuremberg stadium and performed military style maneuvers which they had been practicing for a whole year. In the grand finale, they spelled out the name Adolf Hitler. Hitler gave a speech in which he said, “You, my youth, are our nation’s most precious guarantee for a great future, and you are destined to be the leaders of a glorious new order under the supremacy of National Socialism. Never forget that one day you will rule the world.”

As it turned out, Germany does not rule the world. The Germans are now ruled by the Jews, who have come back to live in Germany.

The ignominious way that Catholic priests were treated by the Nazis

My photo of the gate into the Dachau camp

My photo of the gate into the Dachau camp where Catholic priests were held

The photo above shows the gate into the Dachau concentration camp, which was the main camp where Catholic priests were imprisoned.

One of the regular readers of my blog wrote a comment which I am quoting:

I was also thinking about Catholics v Jews — Poland is a very Catholic country, and they would like a lot more (international) attention paid to eg the Nazi persecution of the Catholic Church and priests in Poland during WWII, including at Auschwitz: At least 1811 Polish clergy died in Nazi Concentration Camps. An estimated 3000 clergy were killed in all.

I read the article about the Polish clergy and found that no reliable source was given.  The source of the information about the priests was this:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nazi_persecution_of_the_Catholic_Church_in_Poland

The information for the Wikipedia article came from Ian Kershaw and Ann A Pawelcz 1980 Values and Violence In Auschwitz: A Sociological Analysis

I have previously written about the Catholic priests on at least two blog posts:

https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2010/06/16/lies-told-by-catholic-priests-who-were-prisoners-at-dachau/

https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2010/10/04/priests-killed-in-the-gas-chamber-at-dachau/

I also blogged about the famous story of “the 9th day” which involved a priest at Dachau:  https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/tag/the-ninth-day/

Dachau was the main camp where 2,720 clergymen were sent, including 2,579 Catholic Priests. The priests at Dachau were separated from the other prisoners and housed together in several barrack buildings in the rear of the camp.

There were 1,780 Polish priests and 447 German priests at Dachau. Of the 1,034 priests who died in the camp, 868 were Polish and 94 were German. Source: “What was it like in the Concentration Camp at Dachau?” by Dr. Johannes Neuhäusler.

Other clergymen at Dachau included 109 Protestant ministers, 22 Greek Orthodox, 2 Muslims and 8 men who were classified as “Old Catholic and Mariaists.”

Dr. Johannes Neuhäusler, an auxiliary Bishop from Munich, was one of the 8 clergymen at Dachau who had a private cell in the bunker, the camp prison building. He was free to leave his cell and walk around the camp. He could also receive visitors from outside the camp.

The worst thing that happened to Dr. Neuhäusler at Dachau was that he was once punished by being confined indoors in the bunker for a week. He was punished for secretly hearing the confession of a former Italian minister who had just arrived at the bunker the day before.

Dr. Neuhäusler wrote in his book entitled “What was it like in the Concentration Camp at Dachau?” that he had been betrayed by a Bible inquirer (Jehovah’s Witness) who worked as the Hausl (housekeeper) in the bunker.

Dr. Neuhäusler did not mention any ill treatment at Dachau but he did write about how he was beaten when he was initially sent to the Sachsenhausen camp.

The main camp, to which the Catholic priests were sent, was the Dachau concentration camp. The first clergymen to arrive at Dachau were Polish priests who were sent there in 1939. The Polish priests had been arrested for helping the Polish Resistance after Poland had been conquered in only 28 days.

The Catholic priests were not sent to Dachau just because they were priests. Catholics and Protestants alike were arrested as “enemies of the state” but only if they preached against the Nazi government.

An important policy of the Nazi party in Germany was called Gleichschaltung, a term that was coined in 1933 to mean that all German culture, religious practice, politics, and daily life should conform with Nazi ideology. This policy meant total control of thought, belief, and practice and it was used to systematically eradicate all anti-Nazi elements after Hitler came to power.

There were around 20 million Catholics and 20,000 priests in Nazi Germany. The vast majority of the German clergymen and the German people, including the 40 million Protestants, went along with Hitler’s ideology and were not persecuted by the Nazis.

Bishop Franciszek Korczynski from Wloclawek, Poland published a book in 1957, entitled “Jasne promienie w Dachau” (Bright Beams in Dachau) in which he claimed that the extermination of the Polish clergy was planned by the Nazis as part of the liquidation of the Polish intelligentsia. He wrote that the priests at Dachau were starved and tortured and that the Nazis used the priests for medical experiments.

Among the priests at Dachau, one of the first Polish prisoners was Archbishop Kozlowiecki who had been arrested on November 10, 1939 in Krakow. According to a speech which he gave when the Catholic Memorial at Dachau was dedicated in 1960, the Archbishop was held in prison for the next five and a half years: three months in Montelupi prison in Krakow, five months in Wisnicz concentration camp in Poland, six months in Auschwitz and four years and four months at Dachau.

In his speech, Archbishop Kozlowiecki said that the Gestapo never gave him a reason for his arrest. As quoted in the book “What was it like in the Concentration Camp at Dachau?” Archbishop Kozlowiecki said that a watchman once gave him a reason: “Because you have an ideology which we do not like.”

Although Archbishop Kozlowiecki did not mention, in his speech, any atrocities that he had endured at Dachau, he did say “For years every dark morning we got up with this horrible feeling of agony and absolute helplessness; it was with a heavy and trembling heart that we went to the morning inspection and to our work.”

Theodore Koch, a Polish priest who was a Dachau prisoner from October 1941 to April 1945, testified at the American Military Tribunal proceedings against the Dachau staff that the prisoners had to do exercises as punishment. According to Koch, the prisoners had to jump, do knee-bends, and other gymnastics, including running on their knees. Koch testified that from Palm Sunday until Easter Sunday, the priests had to go through exercises on the roll call place from 6:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. except for a break for dinner. Koch claimed that many priests died during and after these exercises.

The first German priest to enter Dachau in 1940 was Father Franz Seitz, according to Dr. Johannes Neuhäusler, who wrote a small book about Dachau. The first priests were put into Block 26, but it soon became over crowded because “practically all the priests interned in the camp at Sachsenhausen-Oranienburg were transferred to Dachau, especially many hundreds of Polish clergymen,” according to Dr. Neuhäusler.

Dr. Johannes Neuhäusler wrote, in his book, that an emergency chapel was set up in Block 26 and on January 20, 1941 the first Mass was celebrated. “Some 200 priests stood enraptured before the altar while one of their comrades, wearing white vestments offered up the Holy Sacrifice.”

In 1940, the German bishops and the Pope had persuaded Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler to concentrate all the priests imprisoned in the various concentration camps into one camp, and to house them all together in separate blocks with a chapel where they could say Mass.

In early December 1940, the priests already in Dachau were put into Barracks Block 26 near the end of the camp street. Within two weeks, they were joined by around 800 to 900 priests from Buchenwald, Mauthausen, Sachsenhausen, Auschwitz and other camps, who were put into Blocks 28 and 30. Block 30 was later converted into an infirmary barrack.

At first, the priests at Dachau were given special privileges such as a ration of wine, a loaf of bread for four men, and individual bunk beds. The priests were not required to work and they were allowed to celebrate Mass.

In October 1941, these privileges were taken away. Only the German priests were now allowed to say Mass. All non-German clergymen, including Poles, Dutchmen, Luxembourgers and Belgians, were removed from Block 26 and sent to Block 28. A wire fence was placed around Block 28 and a sentry stood guard. The non-German priests were now forced to work, just like the rest of the prisoners. Allegedly, this change happened because the Pope had made a speech on the radio in which he condemned the Nazis, and the German bishops had made a public protest about the treatment of the priests.

Dr. Johannes Neuhäusler wrote the following in his book entitled “What was it like in the Concentration Camp at Dachau?”:

To prevent the non-German priests from even looking into the chapel from their nearby block, a thick white paint was spread over the chapel windows. The commanding officer of Block 28 forbade the prisoners all practice of religion and threatened severe penalties for any breach of rule. The prisoners were forced to give up all breviaries, rosaries, etc.

During the time that the Polish priests were not allowed to say Mass, they asked the priest from Block 26, who was in charge of the chapel, to give them hosts and wine so they could celebrate Mass in secret, according to Dr. Neuhäusler. The Polish priests who worked on the plantation (farm) at Dachau would kneel on the ground and pretend to be weeding. They had a small portable altar which one of the priests would press into the ground. The priests would knell down and receive Communion from their own hands.

On Christmas Eve in 1941, after 322 days without Mass, Dr. Neuhäusler was allowed to say Mass in a temporary Chapel in one of the cells of the bunker where he was a prisoner. He had received everything necessary for the mass from Cardinal Dr. Michael Faulhaber in Munich, who sent regular packages to Dachau right up to the day the camp was liberated.

A letter from Wolf Murmelstein

I have recently received the following e-mail letter from Wolf Murmelstein:

 

Dear Furtherglory!
 and Commentators!
In some posts and comments on your blog, there is a reference to an alleged order given by Heinrich Himmler – in 1942 – to avoid any physical abuse of the prisoners, or to a statement made by Ernst Kaltenbrunner at Nuremberg about punishment of SS men who were guilty of thefts.
The above seems clearly to have been mockeries in order to fool the International Red Cross Committee, who just at the beginning of 1942, had started action to help civilians, brought to the Concentration Camps, so from the Reich as from the countries under occupation.
The Nazis pretended that, in the Concentration Camps, the treatment had been STRENG ABER GERECHT –severe but just. This was one of the many lies the Nazis had circulated.
When mentioning delousing, or so, we forget that typhus or other diseases had been instrumental in the mass killing of Jews and other prisoners,  who were called, in Nazi Deutsch UNGEZIEFER, – insects – to be extirpated.
The personal safety of the mass of prisoners in a concentration camp had never been a concern of the Nazis; the death marches had been the instrument to murder the most possible prisoners who were still alive. Consider that from Buchenwald and Bergen Belsen, in April 1945, many inmates had been transported away to nowhere, except to death in the overcrowded closed box cars on the trains.
In the USA,  and in the UK and elsewhere, it is still not clear that the THIRD REICH had been run by a group of criminals, who were followers of a racist murder doctrine.  They had taken advantage of the the respect for authority, which was peculiar to the German people, and to many Jews too.
Best.
Wolf Murmelstein.

The Nazis were “Green” when being Green wasn’t cool

Update: August 31, 2014:  I have checked my blog stats again and I have discovered that many of my readers have been directed to my blog by this website: http://bbs.tiexue.net/post2_8278990_1.html

I can’t read Chinese, so I don’t know what is written on the website, which I have cited above. However, the photos show me that the Chinese are now being educated in all the Holocaust lies. For example, the soap made from Jewish fat, which is pictured on the Chinese website. I have many of the same photos on my scrapbookpages website and on my blog, which is apparently what is attracting Chinese visitors.

The Chinese website has a link to this post on my blog: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/page/30/

In that particular blog post, I told about one of the more outrageous lies told by Holocaustians. Are the Chinese now interested in the Holocaust because they believe that these outrageous lies are true?

Continue reading my original blog post:

I always check my blog stats every morning, to see what posts on my blog are being read and by whom.  For the last couple of days, there have been hundreds of people in China reading my blog.  What could I possibly have written that could be of interest to the Chinese?

I go to a Traditional Chinese Medicine doctor and I have written several blog posts about Chinese medicine, including two blog posts which you can read here:

https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2011/08/05/can-traditional-chinese-medicine-help-people-with-type-i-diabetes/

https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2010/09/24/your-life-span-is-determined-by-your-kidneys-and-the-kidneys-are-the-first-organs-to-fail/

But why would people in China want to read what I have written about TCM? Finally, I checked the news and found that the Chinese are getting interested in saving the environment.

The Nazis are noted for trying to save the environment in the early 30ies when this was virtually unknown.

I blogged about Heinrich Himmler growing medicinal herbs at Dachau on this blog post: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2014/04/24/letters-written-by-heinrich-himmler-to-his-family-are-being-published-in-a-german-newspaper/

I also blogged about Heinrich Himmler doing organic gardening at Dachua on this blog post: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2011/04/12/heinrich-himmer-the-chicken-farmer/

I am very happy that people in China are reading my blog posts, but Good Luck with understanding my writing. A lot of what I write is sarcastic and might be hard for people to understand unless they are native English speakers.

Letters written by Heinrich Himmler to his family are being published in a German newspaper

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust — Tags: , — furtherglory @ 11:09 am

According to a newspaper article, which you can read in full here, the letters written by Germany’s Recihsfuhrer-SS Heinrich Himmler to his wife, are being published in installments by a German newspaper.

Heinrich Himmler is the man in the foreground

Heinrich Himmler is the man in the foreground

This quote is from the article, cited above:

Himmler does not explicitly write about the atrocities of World War II [in his letters]. But small letter fragments and quotes reveal his involvement — often shocking in the banality of its evilness — as when he writes to his wife “I’m going to Auschwitz, kisses, yours Heini.”

Before going on an inspection tour of various death camps in occupied Poland, where he wanted to watch the gassing of hundreds of Jews firsthand, Himmler wrote on July 15, 1942, to his wife. “In the next days, I will be in Lublin, Zamosch, Auschwitz, Lemberg and then at a new accommodation,” he said. “I’m curious if and how it will work out with (talking on) the phone. … Have good days with our daughter. Lots of love and kisses. Yours Pappi.”

I detect some slight-of-hand in the above statement.  Did Himmler write, in a letter to his wife, that “he wanted to watch the gassing of hundreds of Jews firsthand”?

Or did the person who wrote this article assume that Himmler wanted to watch a gassing when he went to visit these places.

Lublin was the location of the Majdanek “death camp.” Auschwitz was the location of three camps, two of which allegedly had gas chambers, but the other two places, mentioned in the letter, did not have gas chambers, as far as I know.  This makes me think that his trip was not for the purpose of inspecting the gas chambers.

I wrote about Himmler’s visit to the Auschwitz III camp on my website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/AuschwitzScrapbook/History/Articles/Monowitz.html

You can read more about Himmler’s visits to the camps on this website: http://www.holocaustresearchproject.org/ar/himmlerARvisit.html

Note that Zamosc is mentioned on the website, cited above. Himmler visited this place because Germans were being  settled there, according to the text on the website.

Heinrich Himmler was the man who opened the Dachau camp in 1933. He is shown in the center of the photo above, on an inspection of the camp.

The photo below shows Himmler with his young daughter. He took his daughter with him on some of his visits to Dachau, where she reportedly enjoyed visiting the rabbit cages.  The second photo below shows Himmler at the experimental farm, just outside the Dachau camp, where Himmler, who had a degree in Agriculture, was growing medicinal herbs.

This quote is also from the article about Himmler’s private papers:

The paper said two U.S. Army soldiers found the trove right at the end of the war in May 1945, inside a safe in Himmler’s home in Bavaria.

Decades later, in the 1980s, the papers surfaced in Israel in the hands of Holocaust survivor Chaim Rosenthal. Welt says it is not clear how he obtained the papers.  Rosenthal kept them until 2007, when he sold the documents to Vanessa Lapa’s father, who then gave them to his daughter.

Lapa will debut a documentary she directed on the Himmler files at next month’s Berlin International Film Festival.

I think that it is a very bad idea to release the letters, written by Heinrich Himmler.  This will tend to humanize him.  Which of the Nazi leaders will we have left to hate?

What’s next, the love letters of Ernst Kaltenbrunner?

Once again, the Jews are overplaying their hand. The letters of Heinrich Himmler reveal that he hated the Jews. This will lead to people asking WHY he hated the Jews. Were the Jews in Germany doing anything to cause the Germans to hate them and to want them out of Germany?

Rudolf Höss was tasked by Himmler to perfect the techniques of mass execution

The title of my blog post today comes from a line in a news article in the British newspaper Express:

In May 1940 [Rudolf Höss] was made commandant of Auschwitz where he was eventually tasked by Heinrich Himmler with perfecting the techniques of mass execution that were the key element in Hitler’s murderous “final solution”.

What experience did Rudolf Höss have that qualified him for the job of “perfecting the techniques of mass execution”?  Himmler should have called in a gas chamber expert from Jefferson City, Missouri, which had one of the very few gas chambers at that time, although it was not a gas chamber for mass murder.  There were no gas chambers for mass murder anywhere in the world.  Rudolf Höss, a man with no experience in mass murder, and no experience with gas chambers, was given the job of “perfecting the techniques” of mass execution.

Rudolf Höss is quoted in this part of the news article in the Express:

“You could dispose of 2,000 head in half an hour but it was the burning that took all the time,” he explained later. “The killing was easy. You didn’t even need guards to drive them into the chambers. They just went in expecting to take showers and instead of water we turned on poison gas. The whole thing went very quickly.” He related all of this in a quiet, apathetic matter-of-fact tone of voice.

Wait a minute!  “…we turned on poison gas“?  No, no, no.  The poison gas was in the form of pellets, which came in a can.  Hoess should have said: “We opened a can of Zyklon-B and poured the poisoned pellets through a hole in the roof of the gas chamber.”

I recognized the alleged quote from Rudolf Höss as a quote from the book entitled Nuremberg Diary by G.M. Gilbert. It is on page 250.

The quote from page 250 of Gilbert’s book continues with this:

I was interested in finding out how the order had actually been given and what his reactions were.  He related it as follows: “In the summer of 1941, Himmler called for me and explained: “The Führer has ordered the Endlösung [final solution] of the Jewish question — and we have to carry out this task. For reasons of transportation and isolation, I have picked Auschwitz for this.  You now have the hard job of carrying this out.” As a reason for this he said that it would have to be done at this time, because if it was not done now, then the Jew would later exterminate the German people — or words to that effect.

So an American Jew, with a degree in Psychology from Columbia University, (home of The Frankfurt School) was sent in to get a confession out of Rudolf Höss?  Perfect.  Who better?

Note that Rudolf Höss supposedly said “it would have to be done at this time, because if it was not done now, then the Jew would later exterminate the German people — or words to that effect.”  Where did that come from?

Heinrich Himmler actually did say “words to that effect.”  The following quote is from a speech made by Heinrich Himmler:

As to the Jewish women and children, I did not believe I had a right to let these children grow up to become avengers who would kill our fathers and grandchildren. That, I thought, would be cowardly. Thus the problem was solved without half-measures.

So who was G.M. Gilbert and why should we believe anything he wrote?  This quote is from Wikipedia:

Gustave Gilbert was born in the state of New York in 1911,the son of Jewish-Austrian immigrants. He won a scholarship from the School for Ethical Culture at the College Town Center in New York. In 1939, Gilbert obtained his Ph.D. in Psychology from Columbia University. Gilbert also held a diploma from the American Board of Examiners in Professional Psychology.

During World War II Gilbert was commissioned as a military psychologist with the rank of First Lieutenant. Because of his knowledge of the German language, he was sent overseas as a military intelligence officer.

So a Jewish psychologist, who got his education from the home of the Frankfurt School, was able to get a confession out of Rudolf Höss.

Did Höss deliberately make mistakes, in his numerous confessions to the Allies, as a way of signaling to future generations that he was lying? No, I don’t believe that Höss was that clever, nor that devious.  I believe that he made mistakes in describing the gas chambers because he knew absolutely nothing about gas chambers.  And he couldn’t take any more of the torture, done by the Jews who beat the confessions out of him.

Heinrich Himmer the chicken farmer

Filed under: Health, Holocaust — Tags: , — furtherglory @ 3:54 pm

All the websites that you will ever see, besides all those that you won’t see, say that Heinrich Himmler was a chicken farmer.

For example, on this website, you will find this:

In 1929, Hitler appointed the former Bavarian chicken farmer, Heinrich Himmler, to the post of Reichsführer-SS, and charged him with forming the SS into “an elite troop of the Party.” In addition to protection for the Führer, it performed a number of different tasks, including carrying out functions previously reserved for the police. By this time, the SS had grown into a 52,000-man strong organization.

The Teacher’s Guide to the Holocaust — Perpetrators web site tells little kids this about Himmler:

Heinrich Himmler (1900-1945) was an unsuccessful chicken farmer and fertilizer salesman who became a leader in the Nazi party in the mid-1920s. As head of the SS as well as the Gestapo, he was a cold, efficient, ruthless administrator. He was the organizer of the mass murder of Jews, the man in charge of the concentration and death camps.

Does it seem strange to you that Himmler, who was only a lowly chicken farmer, did so well in the Nazi hierarchy?  And how about Hitler, who was claimed to have been a house painter and a wallpaper hanger before he became the Leader of Germany?

When I was a child in Missouri, my family had a chicken coop in the back yard.  It was my job to feed the chickens.  Does that make me a “chicken farmer?”

Himmler may have had a few chickens in his back yard, but I’m sure that it was his wife who fed the chickens.  Himmler had a degree in Agriculture.  His father was a school teacher and little Heini was highly educated, both at home and at school.  He was not a chicken farmer, any more than Hitler was a house painter.  Hitler was a talented artist and self-educated.

At Dachau, Himmler was experimenting with organic gardening, which was virtually unknown in the 1930s.  The photo above shows him kneeling on the right.  He was not using his education in agriculture for chicken farming.  He was growing plants that could be used as medicine.  Himmler was interested in health before health was popular.

Recently, a student e-mailed me to ask me why the survivors of Auschwitz looked so healthy.  The only reason that I can think of is that they had a healthy diet consisting mainly of whole grain bread and a soup made of vegetables with very little meat.  The prisoners might have been craving a corned beef sandwich on white bread, but they were not starved to death.  The Red Cross sent packages with oranges and chocolate.
