Who blew up the buildings at Auschwitz-Birkenau — the Germans or the Russians?

Filed under: Auschwitz, Holocaust, Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 4:45 pm

I am writing this blog post in answer to an argument that is going on in the comment section of my blog.

This quote is from the comments:

Begin quote

“….the Germans started breaking down those buildings [at AuschwitzBirkenau] before the Soviets got there.

You and FG’s “theory” that the Soviets blew up those buildings matches no reality, Jim.

End quote

The following quote, regarding this subject, is from my website: [My website is kosher — written before I became a Holocaust denier.]

Begin quote from my website:

Old photo of Crematorium III at Auschwitz-Birkenau

In May 1944, the railroad tracks at Auschwitz-Birkenau were extended from the train station into the camp so that the trains carrying the Hungarian Jews could be brought inside the camp. The old photo above shows the tracks a few feet from the 10-foot high barbed wire fence around Krema III.

According to a book [which I purchased from the Auschwitz Museum], Crematorium III was blown up by the Nazis on Jan. 20, 1945, the same day that Crematorium II was destroyed [allegedly by the Nazis].

A book from the U.S. Holocaust Museum entitled “The World Must Know” by Michael Berenbaum says that “Soviet troops entered Birkenau on January 18, 1945.” January 18th was the same day that 60,000 prisoners were being death-marched out of Auschwitz-Birkenau by the Nazis.

Krema II and Krema III were both T-shaped brick buildings which were mirror images. Each of these buildings had an [alleged] underground gas chamber where Jews were murdered with Zyklon-B, a poison gas that was also used for delousing the clothing at Auschwitz-Birkenau. Both buildings are now nothing but ruins; they were [allegedly] blown up by the fleeing Nazis on Jan. 20, 1945, two days after the camp was abandoned [and the prisoners were marched out].

End quote from my website

Allegedly, the Nazis came back two days after they had abandoned the camp, and destroyed these buildings, so as to leave no evidence behind. Or was it the Jewish prisoners who destroyed these buildings in order prove their future Holocaust story? Or maybe the Russians destroyed the buildings! Who knows!

The Nazis kept names of victims who were gassed — who knew?

Filed under: Auschwitz, Germany, Holocaust, Uncategorized — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 1:36 pm

My 2005 photo below shows the glass door, in the rear of the Auschwitz gas chamber, through which the Jews entered the chamber to be gassed. Strangely, none of the Jews ever tried to break the glass to save themselves.

My 2005 photo of the glass door into the Auschwitz gas chamber

The following quote is from a news article which gives names and dates for the gassing of the Jews: https://www.justsecurity.org/42483/time-sounds-silence/

Begin quote from news article:

My father was on a death march through Yugoslavia when liberated by Tito’s partisans in November 1944. My mother was in a courtyard in Budapest waiting to be executed by a firing squad, when Jewish resistance fighters dressed as Arrow Cross policemen intervened and saved her life. My paternal grandparents were murdered in the gas chamber at Auschwitz on May 26, 1944.

End quote

I did not know that the Nazis kept the names and dates that Jews were gassed. Were they trying to get caught or were they just stupid? Where are these record books kept now? Inquiring minds want to know.

The Holocaust was the most important thing that ever happened in the entire history of the world

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust, Uncategorized, World War II — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 8:33 am

On my blog today, I am commenting on a news article, about Bronia Brandman, which you can read in full at https://www.brooklyneagle.com/articles/2017/5/8/holocaust-survivor-makes-emotional-return-auschwitz

The news article starts off with this quote:

Begin quote

In an emotional journey that served as her ultimate triumph over the Nazis, an elderly Borough Park resident [Bronia Brandman] who survived the horrors of the Holocaust paid a return visit to the infamous Auschwitz death camp — this time as a free woman.

It was the first time Bronia Brandman, 86, had seen Auschwitz since her liberation nearly 72 years ago.

End quote

Then Brandia’s story continues with her own story of what happened to her during the Holocaust:

Begin quote

“I came to Auschwitz in 1943 as a child of 12. My parents and four siblings were consigned to the gas chambers. The daily bestiality and dehumanization was beyond words, and the world’s silence was deafening,” Brandman said in a statement. “I never wished to return to that place of our degradation and annihilation, but to return in the presence of our noblest, the bravest of the brave — our IDF soldiers, allows my spirit to soar with pride and hope.”

Her journey back to Auschwitz was part of a 10-day trip to Poland and Israel sponsored by FIDF.

Israeli soldiers and FIDF supporters accompanied a group of Holocaust survivors across Poland and Israel. The trip began on April 24 and ended on May 3.

End quote

What am I complaining about now, you ask? I am writing about this woman because she has no conception of why the Germans put Jews into camps during World War II. She also has no conception of the reason why she was not killed, along with the 6 million Jews who were allegedly killed.

Why did the Nazis save young children who would live for years and tell the world about the Holocaust? Stupid Nazis!!!

The Majdanek concentration camp is in the news

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust, Uncategorized, World War II — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 2:34 pm

I have visited the Majdanek camp, and I wrote about it on my website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/Poland/Majdanek/index.html

This news article tells about the Majdanek concentration camp in Poland: https://www.wired.com/2017/04/vr-holocaust-history-preservation

The photo below is at the top of the news article.

The Majdanek monument in the far distance looks like a hat on the head of the man in the photo

You can read more about the Majdanek camp on my web site at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/Poland/Majdanek/Majdanek01.html

My photo of the monument

This huge monument is very near a major highway which goes past the former Majdanek concentration camp.

My photo of the other side of the monument

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

Pinchas Gutter has returned to Majdanek at least a dozen times, but this trip is his final one to the onetime Nazi concentration camp. His first was one he was 11, when he was taken to Majdanek; now he’s 85 years old, and this is the last time he’ll come here to tell people what the Nazis did to his family. As he rides up to the shuttered camp in the backseat of a chauffeured sedan, he talks about why he’s told his story so many times. Without that living, breathing reminder, the Holocaust becomes easy to forget—or even deny. Without personal accounts, Gutter says, it’s hard for people to accept its atrocities as “the gospel truth.”

Gutter is right about that. That’s why his trip to Majdanek, and the horrific experiences he recounts in the camp’s barracks and crematorium, are being preserved with virtual reality—thanks to the USC Shoah Foundation.

Getting back to basics…

Filed under: Holocaust, Uncategorized — Tags: , — furtherglory @ 8:34 am

Every morning, as soon as I wake up, I turn on my computer and check the number of people who have read my blog the day before. For some reason, these numbers are going higher and higher. People are being directed to my blog on Facebook.

I suspect that these new readers are young people who are new to the zoo. Very soon, America will become the 21st country to pass a Holocaust denial law. That means that you will spend 5 years or more in prison if you deny the story of the Holocaust, as told by the Jews.

You can start educating yourself by reading what the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum says about the Holocaust: https://www.ushmm.org/wlc/en/article.php?ModuleId=10005143

Being quote

The Holocaust was the systematic, bureaucratic, state-sponsored persecution and murder of six million Jews by the Nazi regime and its collaborators. Holocaust is a word of Greek origin meaning “sacrifice by fire.” The Nazis, who came to power in Germany in January 1933, believed that Germans were “racially superior” and that the Jews, deemed “inferior,” were an alien threat to the so-called German racial community.

During the era of the Holocaust, German authorities also targeted other groups because of their perceived “racial inferiority”: Roma (Gypsies), the disabled, and some of the Slavic peoples (Poles, Russians, and others). Other groups were persecuted on political, ideological, and behavioral grounds, among them Communists, Socialists, Jehovah’s Witnesses, and homosexuals.

End quote

I have a whole section on my scrapbookpages.com website about the Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC.

http://www.scrapbookpages.com/USHMM/index.html

Start by reading this page about the Holocaust Museum:

http://www.scrapbookpages.com/USHMM/Intro.html

When I visited the Holocaust Museum on two successive days, I saw only one person that I could identify as Jewish. He was laughing his head off at the exhibits.  The Holocaust Museum is a place for the goyim to worship the Jews, not a place for the Jews to visit.

The entrance to the Holocaust Museum is on the left; the Washington Monument is in the background

The Holocaust Museum is not really in the shadow of the Washington Monument, but it is very close to the monument.

Reinhard Heydrich is back in the news

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust, World War II — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 1:38 pm

Reinhard Heydrich

You can read a recent news article about Reinhard Heydrich at https://sofrep.com/76321/reinhard-heydrich-hunting-devil/

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

Apart from Hitler, perhaps no one typified the evil of Nazism more so than Reinhard Heydrich. Cold, calculating, arrogant and brutal, he is a figure whose hands-on approach to dealing with perceived enemies of Germany made him author of some of the worst crimes ever perpetrated by man.

Tall, slender with smooth blond hair and a somewhat high pitched voice, he joined the SS in the early 1930’s, and quickly rose through the ranks with cutthroat efficiency, running the SS intelligence service, the Sicherheitsdienst or SD. In this office, he helped orchestrate notable events which defined Hitler’s policies by purging suspected political rivals in what became known as The Night Of The Long Knives in 1934, and terrorizing Jews in the Crystal Night pogrom of 1938.

End quote

I am not a fan of Reinhard Heydrich, but he is an interesting person who has gotten a bad rap.

White House Holocaust Remembrance Day statement failed to mention Jews

This news article tells about Donald Trump’s Holocaust Remembrance Day statement:

http://www.slate.com/blogs/the_slatest/2017/02/07/republicans_block_vote_on_resolution_stating_that_holocaust_targeted_jews.html

The Donald failed to mention Jews in his Holocaust Remembrance Day statement.

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote from news article:

The resolution, a shrewd effort to pin Republicans down on something the Trump administration has needlessly made an issue, condemned the White House’s Holocaust Remembrance Day statement, which failed to mention Jews or the anti-Semitism that led to Adolf Hitler’s genocide against them. It also called for the House to reiterate “the indisputable fact that the Nazi regime targeted the Jewish people in its perpetration of the Holocaust,” condemn Holocaust denialism, and demand acknowledgment from the White House that Jews were targeted.

In the wake of controversy over the Holocaust Remembrance Day statement, the White House defended it, saying that it had wished to be inclusive by acknowledging that other groups had been killed by Hitler’s regime as well.

End quote

So-called “other groups” who were killed by “Hitler’s regime” don’t count. The Holocaust is about the Jews. Why didn’t Trump’s Jewish son-in-law advise him on this subject.

Here is what you will need to know when America passes a Holocaust denial law

Filed under: Dachau, Germany, Holocaust, Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 8:11 am

DachauE030.jpeg

My photo of the entrance into Dachau camp

This morning, when I started my day by reading the most recent Holocaust news, I read an article which includes all the false information that you will need to know when America becomes the 21st country to pass a Holocaust denial law.

You can read the news article at http://www.edmondsun.com/news/central-th-graders-study-holocaust-survivors-son-shares-parents-story/article_4be3e71a-f30c-11e6-84b8-d3a4e27fa8d5.html

The news story begins with this quote:

For Central Middle School eighth graders, their yearly study of the “Diary of Anne Frank” was made even more real as Edmond resident Mike Korenblit visited them and shared the Holocaust through his parents’ eyes. He has written a book about his parents, Manya and Meyer Korenblit titled “Until We Meet Again: A True Story of Love and Survival in the Holocaust.”

End quote from news article

Years ago, before I became a Holocaust denier, I wrote about Manya and Meyer Korenblit on this page of my scrapbookpages.com website: https://www.scrapbookpages.com/DachauScrapbook/DachauLiberation/LiberationDay2A.html

Begin quote from my website:

Also among the prisoners on the march [out of Dachau], who were liberated by the Americans, was Majir Korenblit, who had changed his name to Major Kornblit when he moved to Ponca City, Oklahoma in 1951. In 1983, his son Michael Korenblit co-authored a book about the Holocaust experience of his father and his mother, Mania, who changed her name to Manya after the war. The book is entitled “Until We Meet Again: A True Story of Love and War, Separation and Reunion.”

After the Nazis had conquered Poland in September 1939, Majir Korenblit and his teen-aged sweetheart Mania hid from the Gestapo, along with a handful of other Jews, in a hand-dug crater underneath a three-story haystack. Eventually, hunger forced them out of their hiding place and they went to work for the Nazis in the Hrubieszow ghetto.

When the Gestapo came to the ghetto, Major and Manya separated and escaped, spending the next 2 1/2 years on the verge of death. Between them, Majir and Mania survived 13 concentration camps, including Auschwitz where both acquired a tattoo on their arms when they were registered.

Mania survived Auschwitz because she volunteered to work in Czechoslovakia where she was liberated by the Soviet Army. Majir was sent to Germany to work and wound up in Dachau in the last days of the war.

Mania and Majir lost their entire families in the Holocaust, except for Mania’s younger brother Chaim, who moved to Great Britain after the war. Mania and her brother were reunited in 1982.

End quote from my website

To get back to the news article, the following quote describes how students are taught today about the Holocaust.

Begin quote from news article:

Without trivializing the Holocaust, Mike explained to the students that the Holocaust started with a group of people being bullied. The bullies, the German soldiers, targeted certain victims, not only based on who they were, but on their appearance, sexual orientation and religion.

“There were also those who stood by and watched while others were victimized, and didn’t do anything to stop it. In many ways, the Holocaust shared the characteristics of school bullying,” Mike said.

End quote from news article

News articles like this are very upsetting to me. Rarely does a news article explain what really happened. Nobody cares about the true story of what really happened.  It’s all about teaching the Jewish version of history to young people today.

Were there two women at Auschwitz, named Edith Stein and Edith Steiner?

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust, Uncategorized, World War II — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 10:24 am

Sometimes it is possible to find the light of love even in the darkest of times. Like Edith Steiner who was just 20 when she barely escaped death while being held at the Auschwitz concentration camp by the Nazis. John Mackay, the then-23-year-old Scottish soldier who saved Edith, is still with her celebrating their 71st Valentine’s Day together. Edith and her mother were the only remaining members of their family who had not been sent to the gas chambers which meant certain death. But they were saved by a commando team – which Mackay was a part of – that freed a number of Jewish prisoners from the clutches of the Nazis in Poland.

I wrote about the liberation of Auschwitz on my website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/AuschwitzScrapbook/History/Articles/Liberation.html

The following quote is from my website:

The Auschwitz main camp, the Birkenau death camp and the Monowitz labor camp were liberated by soldiers of the Soviet Union in the First Army of the Ukrainian Front, under the command of Marshal Koniev, on January 27, 1945.

How could I have been so wrong! Now I know that it was actually Scottish soldiers who liberated Auschwitz — NOT!

Is The Donald a fascist? Say it isn’t so!

Filed under: Germany, Trump — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 2:32 pm

This article claims that Donald Trump is a fascist!

http://www.salon.com/2017/01/21/congratulations-america-you-did-it-an-actual-fascist-is-now-your-official-president/

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

Donald Trump, a serial liar, narcissist, failed businessman, political con artist, adulterer, professed grabber of women’s genitals without their permission, man who does not read, ignoramus, admirer and fan of despots and dictators, encourager of vigilante violence against innocent people, actor in a porn video, person who does not pay his employees, member of the Vladimir Putin fan club, racist landlord, preferred candidate of neo-Nazis and other fringe racists, professional wrestling villain, and candidate who incites violence against his political opponents, is now the 45th president of the United States of America.

Donald Trump is also a fascist authoritarian in the American mold and leader of the world’s most powerful and influential “democracy.”

Throughout the 2016 presidential campaign, the American news media desperately avoided using such language to describe Donald Trump. They did this because of material self-interest and advertising revenues, as well as an inability to accept how Trump had gamed obsolete journalistic norms of “fairness,” “balance” and “objectivity.”

In doing so, the American news media facilitated Trump’s rise to power. They labeled Trump as a “populist” who was “unconventional.” The American news media kept suggesting that Trump would “pivot” for the general election in order to win more “mainstream” and “centrist” voters. There were some bold voices who said that Trump had “authoritarian tendencies.” But very few commentators had the courage to plainly state that Donald Trump was a fascist — even though the evidence was growing then and is now insurmountable.

End quote

So what is wrong with being a “fascist”? The Nazis were “facists”.  A person can’t get any worse than being a fascist!
