One of the most misunderstood historical events, the Jewish holocaust of World War II is a fascinating and complex subject, as well as a political hot potato.
How much do you really know about the holocaust?
Question 1 of 10
Approximately six million Jews were systematically exterminated in German controlled concentration camps throughout Europe during World War II.
Answer 1 of 10
"I was in the big concentration camps in Germany. I must truthfully state that in no camp have I ever seen anything that might have resembled gas chambers." -- Dr. Benedikt Kautsky, Austrian Social Democrat and Jewish prisoner of various concentration camps from 1938-1945, including three years in Auschwitz, quoted in Auschwitz -- A Personal Account, p. 4
The six million figure is a Jewish symbolic figure that is easily traced back decades before the start of the Second World War in 1939. This figure is no longer supported by any creditable historian.
It had once been claimed that approximately four million people were put to death "at the hands of the Nazi murders" at Auschwitz alone. Polish historians have since reduced this figure to approximately one million and this includes all deaths from all causes, including Typhus. Similarly, death tolls were drastically lowered for several other camps as well.
Though the actual number of Jews who died in concentration camps is difficult to estimate, it is clearly a tiny fraction of the six million figure and there is relevant evidence to suggest it is less than one million. It must also be considered that Jews who died in areas controlled by the Germans, regardless of the cause of death, were often listed as victims of the holocaust.
Despite the massive reduction in deaths by mainstream historians, the erroneous six million figure is still promoted by the mainstream media and other influential institutions. Even Wikipedia still uses it.
Question 2 of 10
The Nazis used fat from the bodies dead Jews to manufacture soap and tattooed skin to make lampshades.
Answer 2 of 10
"It’s a general conception that the Nazis manufactured soap," says [Michael] Berenbaum [author of The World Must Know: The History of the Holocaust as Told in the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum], who was project manager for the USHMM before it opened in 1993 and headed the museum’s research institute until 1997. "But those of us working in this area have not used it as an example [of Nazi atrocity] in the last 10 to 15 years. We don’t have any evidence that the Nazis actually manufactured soap with human bodies."
Outlandish and malicious claims of shrunken heads, lampshades made from human skin, Jews being locked in cages with an eagle and a bear, soap made from human fat, as well as a plethora of others, have been so thoroughly debunked that they are no longer supported by any serious historian, yet some of these claims are still regurgitated by some mainstream institutions, including the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Nevertheless, it was claims such as these, as well as confessions produced through the application of torture, that were used to convict the German "war criminals" during the Nuremberg and Dachau tribunals.
The human soap fallacy first appeared during the First World War and was debunked then as well. No human skin lampshade has ever been found and the lampshade alleged to have been made from human skin which was discovered in the home of Ilse Koch at Buchenwald was proven to have been made from animal skin, which comes as no surprise given there was a factory near the camp that produced lampshades from animal skins.
The shrunken heads of Jews that were displayed for all the world to see as part of a U.S.military psychological warfare operation vanished when the Nuremberg Tribunals began, along with other alleged evidence which was used to turn public opinion against Germany.

Question 4 of 10
Jews declared war on Germany.
Answer 4 of 10
Prominent Jews called for an international boycott of German businesses on March 24, 1933, six years before the outbreak of World War II. This pronouncement was followed by Hitler eight days later when he ordered a boycott of all Jewish owned business in Germany. Hitler collaborated with Zionist officials that same year to create the Transfer Agreement as part of a peaceful effort to encourage Jews to migrate to Palestine along with their asserts. Although the Zionists needed Germany's Jews to populate Palestine, they also realized the value of their persecution which would later be used to solicit reparations.
"When they asked me, couldn't you give money out of the United Jewish Appeal funds for the rescue of Jews in Europe, I said, 'NO!' and I say again 'NO!' ... one should resist this wave which pushes the Zionist activities to secondary importance." -- Yitzhak Greenbaum, Chairman of the Rescue Committee of the Jewish Agency, addressing the Zionist Executive Council in Tel Aviv, Feb. 18, 1943
Question 5 of 10
The evidence conclusively proves that homicidal gas chambers were used to exterminate Jews.
Answer 5 of 10
Evidence collected by scientists, engineers, historians, scholars and others, a number of which are Jewish, strongly support the conclusion that the facilities alleged to have been homicidal gas chambers could not possibly have been used to exterminate human beings for a number of fundamental reasons, including the lack of hermetically sealed enclosures, the absence of explosion-proof electrical fixtures (hydrogen cyanide is an explosive gas), the absence of any significant trace of hydrogen cyanide in test samples, the absence of blue staining from repeated exposure to hydrogen cyanide gas, the absence of equipment to introduce, circulate and exhaust the deadly gas from the enclosures, the presence of unbarred, breakable glass windows, the use of flimsy household doors, some of which opened inward which would have made it impossible to open them after the victims collapsed against them, and many others.
Curiously, the sign at the prisoner shower room at Dachau states that the room was a gas chamber disguised as a shower room, but never used as a gas chamber. In fact, the shower room was altered after the war to resemble a gas chamber for visiting government officials from the United States who would later use this forged evidence to convict the Germans at the Nuremberg and Dachau Tribunals.
The following image shows the alleged homicidal gas chamber that is shown to tourists at the Auschwitz main camp (Auschwitz I). The lack of blue staining, as well as other factors, provide clear evidence that this room was never exposed to large quantities of hydrogen cyanide gas. In fact, this former air-raid shelter and medical facility was reconstructed after the war by the Soviets who added four crude holes in the roof from where we are told the Zyklon B pellets were deposited. Dr. Franciszek Piper, former chair of the Historical Department at the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum, admitted as much during an interview conducted by David Cole, a Jewish historical revisionist who was later physically attacked and had his life threatened by the Jewish Defense League (JDL) for revealing such inconvenient facts.
Below is gas a chamber at Auschwitz-Birkenau (Auschwitz II) which is known to have been used for non-homicidal purposes (disinfection of bedding, clothing, etc.). Notice the prominent blue staining as a result of repeated exposure to hydrogen cyanide. This blue residue is so penetrating and permanent that it is still visible on the exterior walls of some of these enclosures after approximately seven decades of exposure to the elements.
Zyklon B, chlorine, steam, haircuts, uniforms and simple soap and water were used to disinfect buildings, bedding, clothing, personnel and other items. The fact that the Germans dedicated a great deal of time, effort and resources toward preserving the health of the inmates is, in and of itself, a contradiction of the official story.
Of the many hundreds of tons of documents obtained by the allies, not a single document has ever been discovered which proves there was a policy to exterminate Jews. According to all creditable evidence, the policy regarding the Jews -- the "final solution" -- was one of expulsion from Germany, not extermination. Furthermore, it must be considered that this policy was not unique to Germany as Jews had been expelled from approximately 67 countries and persecuted in as many more prior to World War II according to Jewish history. As one historian stated, "When you ask what have the Germans done to the Jews, you must always ask what have the Jews done to the Germans".
Lastly, the internment of subversives and undesirables, however unethical, was not unusual at that time, a time when blacks were still being lynched in the United States. The U.S. government forced both German and Japanese Americans into concentration camps during World War II and similar actions were taken elsewhere throughout history.
Question 6 of 10
What was the leading cause of death of the inmates in the German concentration camps of World War II?
Answer 6 of 10
The volume of creditable witness and scientific evidence seems to prove beyond any reasonable doubt that the vast majority of deaths were due to disease and starvation. Typhus, a lethal disease carried by lice, reached epidemic proportions throughout Europe during the 1940's. The problem became even worse within the camps toward the end of the war as a direct result of the barbaric and indiscriminate carpet bombing of German cities and infrastructure which was used to transport food, medicine and other supplies. The horrific conditions the inmates endured within the camps can therefore be directly attributed to the allies. Furthermore, many of the deaths in the camps occurred while they were under allied control.
Lastly, there is little evidence of maltreatment of the prisoners by the Schutzstaffel Squadron (SS) and no evidence that any of the deaths were caused by exposure to hydrogen cyanide, the gas produced from Zyklon B pellets. Unknown to many is the fact that thousands of autopsies were conducted which support this conclusion, however this evidence is well hidden from the public and these documents were not entered as evidence during the Nuremberg trials. The Institute for Historical Review has the following to say regarding Dr. Charles Larson, a pathologist and member of the U.S. War Crimes Investigation Team, who preformed hundreds of autopsies on concentration camp corpses:
When American and British forces overran western and central Germany in the spring of 1945, they were followed by troops charged with discovering and securing any evidence of German war crimes.
Among them was Dr. Charles Larson, one of America’s leading forensic pathologists, who was assigned to the US Army’s Judge Advocate General’s Department. As part of a US War Crimes Investigation Team, Dr. Larson performed autopsies at Dachau and some twenty other German camps, examining on some days more than 100 corpses. After his grim work at Dachau, he was questioned for three days by US Army prosecutors. 
Dr. Larson’s findings? In an 1980 newspaper interview he said: "What we’ve heard is that six million Jews were exterminated. Part of that is a hoax."  And what part was the hoax? Dr. Larson, who told his biographer that to his knowledge he "was the only forensic pathologist on duty in the entire European Theater" of Allied military operations,  confirmed that "never was a case of poison gas uncovered." 
Question 7 of 10
Several amenities were available for use by the prisoners of Auschwitz, including a swimming pool.
Answer 7 of 10
The pool was pretty deep, and you could drown if you didn’t know how to swim. But if you paddled with your arms and legs, you could stay on the surface. We were in the water about 5 or 10 minutes. -- Stanislaw Bialas, inmate who was transported to Auschwitz in 1940
Not usually part of the Auschwitz tour, curious visitors are sometimes told the swimming pool is not a swimming pool at all, but rather a water reservoir for fighting fires which was built in the shape of a swimming pool. If that were true, one may wonder why such a reservoir would have steps and ladders leading into it, as well as a high dive, starter blocks and decorative fixtures. The swimming pool is clearly located where the prisoners had access to it as we can see the barracks to the left of the perimeter fence in the photograph.
In at least some of the camps prisoners could send and receive mail from the camp post office. In Auschwitz there was also a theater, a library and approximately 22 kitchens, as well as hot houses for growing food, areas for music, art and sports and even a brothel. From the camp store prisoners could use the money they earned while working in the factories in Monowitz (one of the three main camps at Auschwitz) or sent to them in parcels to purchase some convenience items when they were available, including cigarettes and even weak beer.
Question 8 of 10
Hitler disarmed the German population, thus preventing them from defending themselves against his brutal regime.
Answer 8 of 10
Contrary to what the public is often told, the change to the German gun laws in 1938 removed or relaxed several prominent restrictions regarding firearms. Permits were no longer required for long guns and the acquisition and transfer of rifles and shotguns, as well as the possession of ammunition was deregulated. Also the age limit for purchasing firearms was lowered from 20 to 18 and firearm permits became valid for three years instead of one. While it is true that Hitler disarmed the German Jews, this occurred years after international Jewry had declared economic warfare upon Germany, thus formally establishing themselves as an enemy of the state which, according to international law, gave Germany the legal right to disarm the German Jews.
Question 9 of 10
Had Hitler won the war, we'd all be speaking German!
Answer 9 of 10
It does not appear that Hitler had any intention of world domination and this is certainly not something the German people aspired to. In fact Hitler made many documented attempts to avert World War II, however each of his peace offerings were flatly and universally rejected by those who stood to gain from a war with Germany.
- 17 May, 1933, Hitler delivers a speech declaring that Germany is willing to disarm if the neighboring countries would reciprocate. The proposal is rejected.
- 18 Dec., 1933, Hitler submits a six point proposal for the improvement of international relations.
- 26 Jan., 1934, Hitler completes a non-aggression pact with Poland.
- 21 May, 1935, Hitler makes another attempt to avoid the growing possibility of war.
- 18 Jun., 1935, Hitler negotiated a Naval agreement with Great Britain in which it was stated that Germany was to have a naval strength limited to 35% of that of the British Navy.
- 31 Mar., 1936, Hitler formulates a comprehensive plan for peace.
- 6 Dec., 1938, Hitler instructs the German Foreign Minister to make an agreement with France.
- 23 Aug., 1939, Hitler signs the German-Soviet Nonaggression Pact.
- 3 Sep., 1939, Great Britain and France declare war on Germany followed by India, Australia and New Zealand. Several more countries soon follow.
- 6 Oct., 1939, after war had been declared on Germany, Hitler makes a speech, stating in part, "I do not believe that there is any responsible statesman in Europe who does not in his heart desire prosperity for his people. But such a desire can only be realized if all the nations inhabiting this continent decide to work together. To assist in ensuring this co-operation must be the aim of every man who is sincerely struggling for the future of his own people."
In a 1941 radio broadcast in Berlin, Hitler stated, in part:
This conspiracy of democratic Jews and Free Masons dragged Europe into war two years ago. Arms had to decide.
Since then a struggle has been taking place between truth and lies and, as always, this war will end in the victory for truth. In other words, whatever lies British propaganda, international world Jewry and its democratic accomplices may concoct they will not change historical facts. And it is a historical fact that for two years now Germany has been defeating one opponent after another.
I did not want it. Immediately after the first conflict I again held out my hand. I have been a soldier myself and I know how difficult it is to win a victory.
My hand was rejected. And since then we have seen that each peace offer was immediately exploited by the warmonger Churchill and his confreres so that they could say it was proof of our weakness.
And on April 29, 1945, the day of his death, Hitler wrote:
It is untrue that I or anyone else in Germany wanted the war in 1939. It was desired and instigated exclusively by those international statesmen who were either of Jewish descent or worked for Jewish interests. I have made too many offers for the control and limitation of armaments, which posterity will not for all time be able to disregard for the responsibility for the outbreak of this war to be laid on me. I have further never wished that after the first fatal world war a second against England, or even against America, should break out. Centuries will pass away, but out of the ruins of our towns and monuments the hatred against those finally responsible whom we have to thank for everything, international Jewry and its helpers, will grow.
Question 10 of 10
Governments can incarcerate citizens for challenging the mainstream version of the Jewish holocaust of World War II.
Answer 10 of 10
"To determine the true rulers of any society, all you must do is ask yourself this question: Who is it that I am not permitted to criticize?" -- Kevin Alfred Strom
If you live in one of the following countries, your right to free speech according to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights is under severe attack and you can be fined and/or imprisoned for challenging the establishment view regarding the Jewish holocaust
For each of the countries listed below there are laws that restrict historical revisionism and freedom of speech, or legislation which is being considered, or the country has a history of prosecuting historical revisionists. If you live in one of the following countries you should research any legislation that may be applicable before possessing, publishing, sharing, or discussing in public any subject which is critical of historical events, particularly the alleged Jewish holocaust of World War II:
- Canada (considering legislation, history of persecution)
- Czech Republic
- European Union
- Ireland (possible history of persecution)
- United States (considering legislation, history of persecution)
