Was Adolf Hitler really a sadistic monster, hell-bent on world domination and the destruction of the Jews?

In the gallery above you may have noticed the presence of a particular young girl in more than one photograph. Her name is Rosa Bernile Nienau, a Jewish girl who was a favorite of Hitler and who shared his birthday. Here she is again in a special 1933 photograph Hitler addressed to Rosa's mother, the widow Frau K. Nienau, on which he attached with glue some of his favorite Edelweiss flowers. The caption reads "To my darling and good Rosa Nienau, Munich, June 16, 1933. Adolf Hitler":

Part of the series, Adolf Hitler: The Greatest Story Never Told, this next video briefly portrays Hitler's rise to power from the writing of Mine Kampf to the rapid transformation of a destitute Germany to one that was admired by many world leaders.

Much like the myth of homicidal gas chambers, so too is the legacy of Adolf Hitler saturated in untruths bestowed upon us by Zionist-Jewish interests who wish to maintain their geopolitical grip and the significant stream of revenue that might otherwise be jeopardized should the truth about Hitler and the holocaust be widely disseminated. Here again we must be willing to put aside what we have been told by our governments, educational institutions and the mainstream media before we can consider who Adolf Hitler really was and what motivated him to abandon his desire to become an architect and pursue a career in politics instead.

Contrary to what the public is led to believe, Hitler was far removed from the image of an ignorant psychopath that has been painted by the victors of the Second World War. He was an inquisitive intellectual with a seemingly insatiable appetite for knowledge. Although a loner and extremely poor throughout most of his life, he had a passion for architecture and art and he devoured many books from great authors.

Leon Degrelle, who would join the Waffen SS and later become a General, and who was close to Hitler, wrote:

His behavior and his lifestyle never changed even when he became the ruler of Germany. He dressed and lived frugally. During his early days in Munich, he spent no more than a mark per day for food. At no stage in his life did he spend anything on himself. Throughout his thirteen years in the chancellery he never carried a wallet or ever had money of his own.


His intellectual curiosity was limitless. He was readily familiar with the writings of the most diverse authors, and nothing was too complex for his comprehension. He had a deep knowledge and understanding of Buddha, Confucius and Jesus Christ, as well as Luther, Calvin, and Savonarola; of literary giants such as Dante, Schiller, Shake- speare and Goethe; and of analytical writers such as Renan and Gobineau, Chamber- lain and Sorel.


The universality of Hitler’s knowledge may surprise or displease those unaware of it, but it is nonetheless a historical fact: Hitler was one of the most cultivated men of this century. Many times more so than Churchill, an intellectual mediocrity; or than Pierre Laval, with his mere cursory knowledge of history; or than Roosevelt; or Eisenhower, who never got beyond detective novels.

The Enigma of Adolf Hitler

Hitler's bravery and patriotism cannot be questioned. During the First World War he repeatedly volunteered for hazardous duty and was injured on several occasions, one which left him temporarily blind and with permanent eye troubles as a result of exposure to mustard gas. Regardless of the severity of his injuries however, Hitler always returned to his unit as soon as possible even when he was not obligated to return at all. From former sergeant Max Amann with the Bavarian R.-F.-R., 1916:

Hitler never hesitated in the least in carrying out even the most difficult order, and very often took on the most dangerous duties for his comrades.

Couriers for the regimental staff had to be among the most reliable people, because serving as a regimental courier during battles and skirmishes required iron nerves and a cool head. Hitler always did his duty, and even after his severe thigh wound, [he] volunteered to be sent back to his regiment from the reserve battalion, immediately after his release from the hospital.

During one particular battle, armed only with a pistol, Hitler single-handedly captured five French soldiers. For this he was awarded the coveted Iron Cross, 1st class, which was not only an highly prestigious honor, but also an award which was unlikely to be bestowed upon a mere corporal. The citation was signed in 1918 by Baron von Godin, the regimental commander, who stated:

As a dispatch runner, he has shown cold-blooded courage and exemplary boldness both in positional warfare and in the war of movement, and he has always volunteered to carry messages in the most difficult situations and at risk of his life. Under conditions of great peril, when all the communications lines were cut, the untiring and fearless activity of Hitler made it possible for important messages to go through. Hitler received the Iron Cross Second Class for gallant conduct during fighting at Wytschaete on 1 Dec 1914. [He] fully deserves to be awarded the Iron Cross First Class.

Hitler would eventually receive a total of six medals for bravery during combat.

Prior to Hitler's rise to power during the Weimar Republic after the close of World War I, Germany faced a serious threat of a takeover by communist sympathizers residing within her, many of whom were Jewish. Outraged by this and other factors, including the Treaty of Versailles which had gutted and vilified Germany, the young Adolf Hitler, who had wanted to become an artist, decided instead to pursue a career in politics and thus joined the revolutionary National Socialist German Workers Party (NSDAP), eventually becoming its leader in 1921.

Hitler was imprisoned in 1923 after a failed attempt by the NSDAP to seize power of the German government in Munich. It was during this time that he authored Mein Kampf, one of the best selling books ever written of which more than 12 million copies were distributed by the end of World War II. Even today it still ranks high among some of the best seller lists despite the fact that the book is banned in over 20 countries, including the United States (in late 2015 the copyright expires and Mein Kampf will be in the public domain, negating the ban).

In 1933 Hitler was appointed Chancellor of Germany. Many Germans were willing to tolerate the socialist police state dictatorship that he had set up because he was the only leader who offered meaningful solutions to the utterly desperate situation Germany faced, including devastating hyperinflation, crushing unemployment, wide-spread drug use, pornography, prostitution and general lawlessness.

In the following interview of Ernst Zündel which was conducted by an Israeli journalist, we can learn a great deal more about what motivated Hitler and what his intentions were:

In just a few years after being appointed Chancellor, Hitler eliminated the massive unemployment problem by creating approximately six million jobs and restored the German economy while much of the rest of the world was still reeling from the Great Depression of 1929. The outpouring of admiration the people of Germany freely bestowed upon Adolf Hitler is abundantly clear in the massive and enthusiastic crowds he drew everywhere he spoke, especially in Nuremberg, Munich and Berlin which saw some of the largest gatherings the world has ever known.

Hitler would become the most popular leader in all of Europe and was supported by an unprecedented 90% of the nearly 80 million Germans because he followed through on the promises he made. To my knowledge, no other leader before or since has ever been able to come close to replicating the rapid and complete rise from the depths of poverty, chaos and social and political dysfunction as was experienced in Germany in the late 1930's. The people of Germany had placed their hopes for the future upon the shoulders of Adolf Hitler and he delivered. Hitler's accomplishments include:

  • Created approximately 3 million of jobs in his first year in office and went on to virtually eliminate unemployment.
  • Restored the German economy.
  • Eliminated debt slavery (interest on loans).
  • Cleaned up the massive crime, drug, prostitution and pornography problems, especially in Berlin where there had been approximately 270,000 suicides in 1932 alone.
  • Created various social programs, including financial support for expectant mothers.
  • Conceptualized the Volkswagen, a tough, reliable and inexpensive car that nearly every German could afford.
  • Greatly expanded the autobahn, a system of highways stretching across Germany.
  • Introduced a 40 hour work week with mandatory breaks for employees and paid overtime.
  • Introduced government subsided vacations for German workers.
  • Promoted environmentalism and introduced animal rights.
  • United the German people and restored their dignity and confidence.

Not popular with the mainstream historians are the many attempts Hitler made to resolve the growing tensions peacefully and avert the Second World War, however those who stood to gain from a war with Germany would have nothing to do with his offers of peace:

  • 17 May, 1933, Hitler delivers a speech declaring that Germany is willing to disarm if the neighboring countries would reciprocate, stating in part:

Germany will be perfectly ready to disband her entire military establishment and destroy the small amount of arms remaining to her, if the neighboring countries will do the same thing with equal thoroughness.

  • 18 Dec., 1933, Hitler submits a six point proposal for the improvement of international relations. The last point was:

6. The European nations guarantee one another the unconditional maintenance of peace by the conclusion of non-aggression pacts, to be renewed after ten years.

  • 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, stating in a speech:

Germany declares herself ready to agree to any limitation whatsoever of the caliber-strength of artillery, battleships, cruisers and torpedo boats. In like manner the German Government is ready to accept any international limitation of the size of warships. And finally it is ready to agree to limitation of tonnage for submarines, or to their complete abolition in case of international agreement.

  • 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, stating in part:

The German Government believes that with the peace plan proposed above it has made its contribution to the reconstruction of a new Europe on the basis of reciprocal respect and confidence between sovereign states. Many opportunities for such a pacification of Europe, for which Germany has so often in the last few years made her proposals, have been neglected. May this attempt to achieve European understanding succeed at last!

  • 30 Sep., 1938, Hitler makes an agreement with the British Prime Minister, stating in part:

We regard the agreement signed last night and the Anglo-German Naval Agreement as symbolic of the desire of our two peoples never to go to war with one another again.

We are resolved that the method of consultation shall be the method adopted to deal with any other questions that may concern our two countries, and we are determined to continue our efforts to remove possible sources of difference and thus to contribute to assure the peace of Europe.

  • 6 Dec., 1938, Hitler instructs the German Foreign Minister to make an agreement with France which states, in part:

The German Government and the French Government fully share the conviction that peaceful and good-neighborly relations between Germany and France constitute one of the most essential elements for the consolidation of the situation in Europe and the maintenance of general peace. The two Governments will in consequence use all their efforts to ensure the development of the relations between their countries in this direction.

  • 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:

In the war with Poland, I endeavored to restrict aerial warfare to objectives of military importance, or only to employ it to combat resistance at a given point. But it must surely be possible to emulate the Red Cross in drawing up some universally valid international regulation. It is only when this is achieved that peace can reign, particularly on our densely populated continent a peace which, un-contaminated by suspicion and fear, will provide the only possible condition for real economic prosperity. 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.

Following is a quote from Hitlers broadcast in Berlin to the German people in 1941:

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.

At approximately 3 AM on 29 April, 1945, the day before his death, Hitler authored the following political testament:

The last known photograph of Adolf Hitler

My Political Testament

More than thirty years have now passed since I in 1914 made my modest contribution as a volunteer in the first world war that was forced upon the Reich.

In these three decades I have been actuated solely by love and loyalty to my people in all my thoughts, acts, and life. They gave me the strength to make the most difficult decisions which have ever confronted mortal man. I have spent my time, my working strength, and my health in these three decades.

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.

Three days before the outbreak of the German-Polish war I again proposed to the British ambassador in Berlin a solution to the German-Polish problem—similar to that in the case of the Saar district, under international control. This offer also cannot be denied. It was only rejected because the leading circles in English politics wanted the war, partly on account of the business hoped for and partly under influence of propaganda organized by international Jewry.

I have also made it quite plain that, if the nations of Europe are again to be regarded as mere shares to be bought and sold by these international conspirators in money and finance, then that race, Jewry, which is the real criminal of this murderous struggle, will be saddled with the responsibility. I further left no one in doubt that this time not only would millions of children of Europe's Aryan peoples die of hunger, not only would millions of grown men suffer death, and not only hundreds of thousands of women and children be burnt and bombed to death in the towns, without the real criminal having to atone for this guilt, even if by more humane means.

After six years of war, which in spite of all setbacks will go down one day in history as the most glorious and valiant demonstration of a nation's life purpose, I cannot forsake the city which is the capital of this Reich. As the forces are too small to make any further stand against the enemy attack at this place, and our resistance is gradually being weakened by men who are as deluded as they are lacking in initiative, I should like, by remaining in this town, to share my fate with those, the millions of others, who have also taken upon themselves to do so. Moreover I do not wish to fall into the hands of an enemy who requires a new spectacle organized by the Jews for the amusement of their hysterical masses.

I have decided therefore to remain in Berlin and there of my own free will to choose death at the moment when I believe the position of the Fuehrer and Chancellor itself can no longer be held.

I die with a happy heart, aware of the immeasurable deeds and achievements of our soldiers at the front, our women at home, the achievements of our farmers and workers and the work, unique in history, of our youth who bear my name.

That from the bottom of my heart I express my thanks to you all, is just as self-evident as my wish that you should, because of that, on no account give up the struggle but rather continue it against the enemies of the Fatherland, no matter where, true to the creed of a great Clausewitz. From the sacrifice of our soldiers and from my own unity with them unto death, will in any case spring up in the history of Germany, the seed of a radiant renaissance of the National-Socialist movement and thus of the realization of a true community of nations.

Many of the most courageous men and women have decided to unite their lives with mine until the very last I have begged and finally ordered them not to do this, but to take part in the further battle of the Nation. I beg the heads of the Armies, the Navy, and the Air Force to strengthen by all possible means the spirit of resistance of our soldiers in the National-Socialist sense, with special reference to the fact that also I myself, as founder and creator of this movement, have preferred death to cowardly abdication or even capitulation.

May it, at some future time, become part of the code of honour of the German officer—as is already the case in our Navy—that the surrender of a district or of a town is impossible, and that above all the leaders here must march ahead as shining examples, faithfully fulfilling their duty unto death.

Hitler's "final solution to the Jewish question" was not a policy of extermination, but a policy of expulsion. The Jews residing in Germany could leave at any time of their own accord and were certainly encouraged to do so. Those that chose to stay, and were more then half Jewish, would be forced out. To further encourage the emigration of the Jews, the Nazis made a pact the with the Zionists called the Haavara Agreement which allowed 60,000 Jews to emigrate to Palestine with their assets generally intact. This pact, also known as The Transfer Agreement, served the purpose of both the Nazis and the Zionists, the latter of which needed the German Jews in order to establish the state of Israel. The Haavara Agreement was in effect from 1933 until 1941 when it was terminated due to the outbreak of World War II.

Though the majority of the German Jews chose to migrate before the war broke out, those who were only partially Jewish, as determined by their heritage, were allowed to remain in Germany and many did. There was even a functioning Synagogue in Berlin, the same city in which the Reich Chancellery was located, until the allies bombed it in 1943. There were also as many as 150,000 Jews that served in Hitlers army, some of which rose to the highest ranks, and those that made up the Waffen Schutzstaffel (Waffen SS) were primarily volunteers of various ethnic backgrounds from approximately 30 countries including Belgium, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, the Netherlands and Ukraine. Germany had possibly the only multinational military at that time that did not segregate based on race, unlike the United States military which had special units for African Americans and others.

Several chemists, scientists, scholars, lawyers, historians, Polish officials and a gas chamber execution expert have questioned or flatly refuted the validity of homicidal gas chamber claims, each presenting substantial evidence to support that the official account of six million Jews killed is, at a minimum, severely flawed, a great deal of this evidence being centered around Auschwitz. In 1989, Polish historians made a dramatic revision to the number of people who died in the notorious Auschwitz "death camp" where the old figure of approximately 4.1 million was reduced to approximately 1.1 million. This revision was the result of evidence brought forth during the "false news" trial of Ernst Zündel in Canada. The new figure, which many revisionists would argue is also inflated, and which includes all deaths of all causes, natural or otherwise, is also quoted by the Anti-Defamation League in their hit piece on Carolyn Yeager:

Yeager claims that Auschwitz was not an extermination camp and that Nazi guards looked after the health of inmates. Reputable scholars estimate that 1.1 million people, 90% of them Jewish, died at Auschwitz.

Are these are the same "reputable scholars" that made the three million blunder in the original Auschwitz death toll?

Visitors arriving at Auschwitz prior to 1989 would have seen a memorial plaque near the entrance which stated that 4 million people died at the hands of the "Nazi murders" between 1940 and 1945. After 1989 this figure was officially reduced to approximately 1.1 million by Franciszek Piper, chair of the Historical Department at the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum, and the old plaque was replaced with a new one which states that 1.5 million died, which is of course three tenths of million more than the figure stated on the museums own website.

Most disturbing is that, although the death toll was lowered by three million, the infamous "six million" figure representing the total number of Jewish holocaust victims during the Second World War is still cited by the mainstream media and is therefore widely accepted as the official figure by the public. Holocaust mathematics, where 6,000,000 - 3,000,000 = 6,000,000, is apparently quite unlike the mathematics the rest of us were taught in grade school.

Even in some holocaust scholar circles, significant discrepancies such as these are too often overlooked by those who do not wish to have their neck stomped on by the jackboot of antisemitism which is eternally poised to crush any who dare challenge the official version of Jewish holocaust history. The real threat to the holocaust peddling industry is not historical accuracy however, as we shall soon discover.

Whatever the actual death toll for Auschwitz may be, and there is compelling evidence that suggests it is but a fraction of the alleged 1.1 million, it is imperative to understand that this figure includes all deaths of all people from all causes, including typhus, typhoid and other diseases which caused the vast majority of those deaths, yet the plaque at Auschwitz clearly states that all of these people were murdered by the Nazis. While it is certainly reasonable to attribute many deaths to the war, either directly or indirectly, is it not a stretch to insinuate that those who died of disease were murdered at the hands of the Nazis?

Perhaps the most significant issue here is not so much the reduction of three million victims from the official record, but that it is perfectly acceptable for mainstream historians to revise their figures, while any holocaust revisionist attempting to do the same, Jewish or otherwise, and regardless of the strength of the evidence, is automatically branded as an antisemitic loony who must be forever silenced.

Majdanek Death Toll
Historical reductions in the number of dead at Majdanek

Auschwitz is not the only camp where significant changes have been made to the official death toll by mainstream historians. For example, at Majdanek the death toll has been reduced from its original figure of 1.7 million to 42,000 and, again, this figure includes all deaths regardless of the cause. Following is a timeline of reductions made to the death toll at Majdanek:

Regarding the total number of deaths during the war which can be attributed to persecution, Barbara Kulaszka writes in her book Did Six Million Really Die? - Report of the Evidence in the Canadian 'False News' Trial of Ernst Zündel:

Doubtless, several thousand Jewish persons did die in the course of the Second World War, but this must be seen in the context of a war that cost many millions of innocent victims on all sides. To put the matter in perspective, for example, we may point out that 700,000 Russian civilians died during the siege of Leningrad, and a total of 2,050,000 German civilians were killed in Allied air raids and forced repatriation after the war. In 1955, another neutral Swiss source, Die Tat of Zurich (January 19th, 1955), in a survey of all Second World War casualties based on figures of the International Red Cross, put the "Loss of victims of persecution because of politics, race or religion who died in prisons and concentration camps between 1939 and 1945" at 300,000, not all of whom were Jews, and this figure seems the most accurate assessment.

Following are the original estimated figures for the world Jewish population before they were revised using figures supplied by the World Jewish Congress:

Before the war:

World Almanac 1929 (p. 727): 15,630,000
National Council of Churches USA 1930: 15,600,000
World Almanac 1936 (p. 748): 15,753,633
World Almanac 1938 (p. 510): 15,748,091

During the war:

American Jewish Congress Council of Synagogues 1939 15,600,000
World Almanac 1940 (p. 129): 15,319,359
World Almanac 1942 (p. 849): 15,192,089

After the war:

World Almanac 1947: (p. 748): 15,688,259
World Almanac 1948: (p. 849): 15,763,630

In the figures above, we can see that in 1936, before the war, the world Jewish population is estimated to be 15,753,633 while after the war, in 1948, it is estimated to be 15,763,630. Even when considering the natural increase in population which one would expect from the years 1930 to 1936 where the population rose only 153,633, where is the missing six million? This seemingly revealing statistic is not necessarily definitive however due to the problems of emigration, the redrawing of geographic borders, estimated verses actual figures, what data is included, what data is excluded, the source of the data, revisions to the data, how the data is compiled and by whom, who is considered a victim of the holocaust, fraud, and even who is or is not considered to be Jewish. I can only suggest reading some of the material in the resources section for those who wish to pursue this course, particularly Arthur R. Butz: The Hoax of the Twentieth Century and Did Six Million Really Die? by Richard Harwood. Many more documents can be found in the CODOH and IHR libraries. What is definitive however, is that approximately three million supposedly murdered Jews were subtracted from the Auschwitz death record by the mainstream Polish historians, a fact that alone destroys the legendary 'six million' figure. Furthermore, the six million figure is a Jewish symbolic figure that can be traced back to the early 1900's in newspaper articles and long before that in religious texts.

The 'six million' figure was rolled out again recently when Benjamin Netanyahu, the current prime minister of Israel as of 2018, used it to promote utter lies about Iran's non-existent nuclear weapons program. The following quote from Bloomberg, May 9, 2018, is included in an article by Jonas E. Alexis which appeared on the Veterans Today website under the title, Netanyahu to Putin: Iran seeks to destroy 6 million Jews:

There is a country in the Middle East, Iran, which calls for the destruction of another 6 million Jews.

Rescuing Israel: The Holocaust - The Bodies

"It is easier to believe a lie one has heard a hundred times than a truth one has never heard before." -- Robert S. Lynd, American sociologist, The Passion of Labour (pg. 67)

Most of us have seen the naked, decaying corpses in photographs and film, piles of them everywhere being thrown or bulldozed into pits or laying in the open waiting to be disposed of. When these images are combined with the voice of the narrator in a documentary film, there seems to be no question as to how these people died; they were murdered in gas chambers or by other means at the hands of the brutal Nazis.

These images, burned into our minds after nearly 70 years of schooling, books, documentary and Hollywood films, along with the often present violin music, pose what may be the greatest barrier toward critical thinking one may face regarding the alleged holocaust of World War II. We all saw the bodies! How can anyone have the audacity to question the fact that the Nazis sent six million Jews to their deaths after witnessing these atrocities with our own eyes?

Here is what Dr. Russell Barton, who was one of the first British medics to arrive at Bergen-Belsen, has to say regarding the piles of bodies and general conditions in the camp:

Almost all of the photographs and film of corpses we have seen share some common attributes; 1), the time frame in which they were captured, 2), many of the bodies are emaciated, 3), there is no unusual discoloring apparent in the fresher corpses and 4), most of the images are from the Dachau, Bergen-Belsen and Buchenwald camps.

While we are encouraged to believe that the piles of corpses were the result of mass gassings, the simple fact is that there were no homicidal gas chambers at Buchenwald or Bergen-Belsen, nor was there ever a functioning gas chamber at Dachau (actually there was no gas chamber at all, a fact which we will expand upon later). These facts are agreed upon by both reputable exterminationists and revisionists.

The photograph of the pile of bodies in image number 1 was captured by the allies after U.S. troops liberated the Buchenwald concentration camp in Germany on April 4th, 1945. The majority of the deaths in the camps occurred during the final months of the war, a period during which conditions deteriorated drastically due to the increased pressure and bombing of infrastructure caused by the allied forces. It is estimated that 500 people perished daily in Bergen-Belsen during the final months of the war while the camp was under the control of the Germans and this figure soared to approximately 1700 deaths per day after the camps were liberated and the inmates were in the care of the allies.

Typhus had reached epidemic proportions throughout occupied Europe but other diseases, including typhoid, dysentery and tuberculosis, were prolific as well. The problem of disease was greatly intensified in the camps due to severe overcrowding as the Germans were forced to consolidate prisoners in a smaller and smaller number of camps due to the allied advanced as Germany began to lose the war. Image number 4 is of a sign that was posted at Auschwitz which warned people about the danger posed by typhus, the deadly disease carried by lice for which the Germans had no cure.

Allied bombing had been taking place on a massive scale throughout occupied Europe, resulting in many thousands of civilian casualties. Piles of corpses were a common sight, as seen in the 3rd photograph which was captured after the brutal allied slaughter that took place in Dresden. Roads, bridges and railways which were vital for transporting food, medicine and other supplies to the camps and elsewhere were obliterated and therefore many thousands of the deaths in the camps can be indirectly attributed to the indiscriminate allied carpet bombing campaign. Image number 6 shows how the death toll in Buchenwald rose from about 200 per month to approximately 4000 per month during the bombing campaign. The deaths of many thousands more occurred while the camps were under allied control after their liberation.

Both hydrogen cyanide and carbon monoxide poisoning can cause distinct blue or bright red to pink patches on the skin as seen in image number 5. This discoloration would have be clearly visible on the fresher corpses had they been exposed to hydrogen cyanide or carbon monoxide gas. Even in gray-scale photographs, dark patches on the skin should be visible. An article from eMedicineHealth states:

The skin of a cyanide-poisoned person can sometimes be unusually pink or cherry-red because oxygen will stay in the blood and not get into the cells.

From an eNotes article titled Suicide Investigation:

Cyanide turns to lethal hydrogen cyanide gas on contact with the acid of the stomach. Hydrogen cyanide prevents the body's cells from using oxygen; this gives the blood a characteristic pink color that will be evident to the pathologist on autopsy. The victim's face is often a brick-red hue after cyanide poisoning.

From the book Forensic Pathology, Second Edition by Dominick DiMaio and Vincent J.M. DiMaio M.D.:

The gastric mucosa and blood will have a bright red color. Livor mortis is often bright pink. This coloration is caused by cyanide's inhibiton of the cytochrome oxidase system, which prevents utilization of circulating oxyhemoglobin. It is oxyhemoglobin that gives the bright pink color to the blood, not cyanohemoglobin, which is not formed in any significant quantity in life. If a strong solution of potassium or sodium cyanide was ingested, there may be some alkaline burns of the gastric mucosa. If there was some vomiting of the material, these burns might be seen in the skin adjacent to the mouth. If hydrogen cyanide is inhaled, the only changes at autopsy are a bright pink color to the blood and livor mortis.

Unknown to many is the fact that autopsies were conducted on a large number of corpses after the camps were liberated. It is very telling indeed that these autopsy reports were not entered as evidence during the Nuremberg tribunals. 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 the corpses in the German concentration camps:

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. [1]

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." [2] 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, [3] confirmed that "never was a case of poison gas uncovered." [4]

Dr. John E. Gordon, M.D., Ph.D., professor of preventive medicine and epidemiology at the Harvard University School of Public Health, who was with U.S. forces in Germany in 1945, said:

Most deaths in the concentration camps were caused, not by starvation or maltreatment but by typhus.

In an article titled Disease killed Nazis' prisoners, MD says we read:

Thousands of prisoners who died at the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp during WWII weren't deliberately starved to death but died from a rash of diseases, according to a psychiatrist who was there in 1945.

From the trial of Ernst Zündel, formally a political prisoner of Canada, the United States and Germany, Emil Lachout read the following evidence from a Circular Letter of the Military Police Service dated October 1, 1948:

Military Police Service Copy

Circular Letter No. 31/48 Vienna, 1 Oct. 1948 10th dispatch

1. The Allied Commissions of Inquiry have so far established that no people were killed by poison gas in the following concentration camps: Bergen-Belsen, Buchenwald, Dachau, Flossenbürg, Gross-Rosen, Mauthausen and its satellite camps, Natzweiler, Neuengamme, Niederhagen (Wewelsburg), Ravensbrück, Sachsenhausen, Stutthof, Theresienstadt.

In those cases, it has been possible to prove that confessions had been extracted by tortures and that testimonies were false.

This must be taken into account when conducting investigations and interrogations with respect to war crimes.

The result of this investigation should be brought to the cognizance of former concentration camp inmates who at the time of the hearings testified on the murder of people, especially Jews, with poison gas in those concentration camps. Should they insist on their statements, charges are to be brought against them for making false statements.

From a document titled The Rudolf Verdict As Pronounced By Mannheim District Court On 2 May 2007, we read:

# 6 What about those pictures of mountains of dead bodies in the concentration camps?

Here is a photograph of victims of the typhus epidemic in a mass grave on the concentration camp in Bergen-Belsen, taken by the British Army. It is typical of a large number of such photos often shown on TV Holocaust documentaries either without commentary or else with allegations that the dead are victims of the Holocaust. In fact, it is a photograph of victims of an epidemic which occurred at war's end. The cause of death is evident from the condition of the corpses. If they had been gassed they would not be emaciated and if they had died of starvation they would have swollen joints and stomachs. Any medical professional will see at first glance that these people died of typhus.

All photographs of heaps of corpses were taken in Western camps around the end of the war, such as Dachau, Bergen-Belsen, and Buchenwald, where historians now agree no mass murders took place. Significantly, there are no such photographs taken at the camps in which mass murder is alleged to have occurred (Auschwitz, Treblinka, Belzec, Sobibor, Chelmno, Majdanek.) These eastern camps were all in areas which came under Soviet control at war's end. It is very telling that the Soviets released no pictures of mass graves or heaps of corpses and allowed no journalists, medical professionals, or other experts to examine the camps. Since the end of the 1980s, Revisionists have been investigating these sites for evidence of mass murder, but the officials have obstructed their efforts by all possible means.

In the absence of authentic photographs documenting mass murder, it frequently happens that photographs of those who died in the Western camps at war's end of malnutrition and typhus are presented as evidence of deliberate mass murder. To be sure, the hellish conditions in the Western camps at war's end convinced many Allied observers that mass murder had taken place, so that initial reports to that effect are understandable. In reality, these conditions resulted from a situation for which the German government was not solely responsible. Toward the end of the war, Himmler illogically ordered the evacuation of the eastern camps as the Red Army approached, which led to hopeless overcrowding in the western camps. By that time, Allied bombing had completely destroyed the German infrastructure, making it impossible to supply the camps with food, medicines, and sanitation supplies. Misunderstandings about the causes of the massive die-off continue to this day, especially among Americans. The respected leftist historian Norbert Frei has given the following reason for misinterpretation, (from Vi erteljahrshefte für Zeitgeschichte 35 (1987) page 400):

The allied destruction of Dessau, Germany, 1945
The allied destruction of Dessau, Germany, 1945

"The shock of these discoveries [of mountains of corpses] often led to false conclusions which turned out to be enduring."

There is no denying that a government which imprisons people in camps is responsible for them and so the unjustly imprisoned were therefore victims of the Third Reich, even if they died "only" of disease. However, one should not overlook the fact that by the war's end, mountains of corpses had become commonplace throughout Germany. In German cities there were 600,000 victims of Allied terror bombings. Millions more died of starvation and disease, which continued rampant through 1949. In Eastern Germany and Czechoslovakia, three million Germans were murdered by Serbs, Czechs, Poles, and Russians in the course of history's bloodiest ethnic cleansing. In the POW camps of the western Allies, a million young German men died and millions more allowed to vegetate. Hundreds of thousands more were shipped to the labor camps of the Soviet Gulag never to be seen again. But the media show only one variety of corpse piles, those in the concentration camps. We should ask ourselves why this is so.

Should the dignity and respect that we owe the victims of atrocities, depend on their nationality?

From the book The Hoax of the Twentieth Century - The Case Against The Presumed Extermination Of European Jewry by Arthur R. Butz, we read about the allied destruction of infrastructure which was vital for transporting supplies to the camps:

The conditions in the camps had forced the German government, in March 1945, to take the final step in reversal of its earlier policy of absolute exclusion of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) from the concentration camps (existing conventions covered POWs, not concentration camp inmates). On March 29, 1945, SS General Kaltenbrunner authorized the ICRC to place one delegate in each camp for the purpose of distributing relief supplies, on the conditions that the delegate remained there until the end of the war. The ICRC organized road transport for relief supplies (use of the rail- ways was out of the question) [...]

And again, regarding the railways:

The German rail system was in utter chaos and conditions in April 1945 are difficult to imagine [...]

And here, regarding the cause of death:

The causes for the dead bodies which were found at the camp when it was captured were described in a 1948 publication of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. As the US Army advanced into Germany, it encountered the sorts of conditions which its medical services had anticipated and for which they had prepared counter-measures:

"Germany in the spring months of April and May was an astounding sight, a mixture of humanity traveling this way and that, homeless, often hungry and carrying typhus with them. [...] The more territory that was uncovered, the greater was the number of reported cases; for Western Germany in the areas of the American advance was rather uniformly seeded with typhus. To be sure, there were heavily involved communities and others lightly affected. There were great accumulations of cases in the concentration and prison camps, and in nearby small communities.

As estimated 35,000-40,000 prisoners were found in [Dachau], living under conditions bad even for a German camp of this kind and worse than any other that came into American hands. Extreme filthiness, louse infestation, and overcrowding prevailed throughout the camp buildings. Several car-loads of human bodies were found packed in box cars in the railroad yards adjacent to the camp, the vestiges of a shipment of prisoners from camps further north who were transferred to Dachau in the late days of the war to escape the advancing United States troops.

The number of patients with typhus fever at the time the camp was first occupied will never be known. Days passed before a census of patients could be accomplished. Several hundreds were found in the prison hospital, but their number was small compared with the patients who continued to live with their comrades in the camp barracks, bed-ridden and unattended, lying in bunks 4 tiers high with 2 and sometimes 3 men to a narrow shelf-like bed; the sick and the well; crowded beyond all description; reeking with filth and neglect - and everywhere the smell of death."

It is not surprising that Dachau had experienced catastrophes very similar to those at Belsen. Since the beginning of 1945, there had been an estimated 15,000 prisoner deaths from typhus, mostly in the final two months.

In closing, there is not any creditable forensic evidence that gassings were conducted in any of the camps, including those that are alleged to have had homicidal gas chambers. I hope that the reader will begin to understand how propaganda and images are used by the media and governments alike to tell a largely falsified story that fits a particular agenda and how such a narrative, after being repeated over and over again, can permeate the public perception to the point where the truth is nothing but a distant shadow.

Rescuing Israel: The Holocaust - The Gas Chambers

"Given the nonsense that is turned out daily by the Holocaust industry, the wonder is that there are so few skeptics." -- Norman Finkelstein, Jewish American political scientist, activist, professor and author, quoted from his book 'The Holocaust Industry'

"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, Jewish prisoner of Auschwitz from 1938-1945, Did Six Million Really Die? p. 382

Video: Auschwitz - The Surprising Hidden Truth

Many of us assume that there must be testimony from many thousands of eyewitnesses which support the conclusion that homicidal gas chambers were used to murder six million Jews and other undesirables in the German concentration camps of World War II, however the truth is far different. From my research it has become readily apparent that many of the alleged eyewitnesses, and perhaps the vast majority for which testimony is available, learned of the gas chambers only after the conclusion of the war, never having seen a homicidal gas chamber despite the fact that the facilities alleged to have been gas chambers were in plain view in at least some of the camps, Auschwitz included. It has also become apparent that the total number of alleged eyewitnesses is not in the thousands, nor even the hundreds, and many of them have been thoroughly discredited long ago, including Irene Zisblatt. From a document tiled Eye Witness Testimony of Homicidal Gassings in German Concentration Camps During World War II by Jürgen Graf, we read:

6. Are there really "Thousands of Witnesses"?

A person of average intelligence, confronted with the arguments of revisionists, is not going to question the superiority of documentary and forensic proof versus eye-witnesses, but will insist that it is impossible for "Thousands of Witnesses" to lie. Therefore the gas chamber stories must be essentially true even if the number of victims is inflated. This argument has a basic flaw. There are no "Thousands of Witnesses." Only someone who saw what happened and can give a fair description of an event is assumed to be a witness. When at the court case in April of this year against the Swiss revisionist Gaston-Armand Amaudruz, in Lausanne, two former Jewish concentration camp inmates, Toman and Klein, appeared; the former a co-plaintiff, and the latter as a witness for the prosecution.[16] The press reported that they were gas chamber witnesses. But in reality, neither one of them admittedly witnessed a human gassing. They observed many people enter gas chambers and not leave them. (Toman and Klein further stated that they continually saw flames belching from the chimneys of the crematory, which is impossible, as any expert will attest). The two Jews at the Amaudruz court case are a typical example of many of the so-called gas chamber witnesses. They only convey what they heard from others or what they have read. The number of witnesses who actually describe gassings, number a few dozen at best. For decades, while reading "Holocaust" literature, the same names pop up: Höss, Broad, Vrba, Müller, Tauber, Dragon, Nyiszli, Bendel, Gerstein, Wiernic, and a few more. If one wants to examine the trustworthiness of those witnesses, as I did in my book Auschwitz: Perpetrator Confessions and Witnesses of the Holocaust,[17] he has a solvable job in front of him, since he only needs to concentrate on a few accounts. The whole "Holocaust" rests on their credibility.

Treblinka Samuel Rajzman report
The article in the Jewish Western Bulletin, 24 Nov., 1944, "Nazis Slew 2,700,000 Jews in Tremblinka" is based on a report written by a single Jewish witness, Samuel Rajzman

In the case of Treblinka, the prosecution at the Nuremberg Tribunals relied upon the testimony of a single Jewish alleged eyewitness to show that 2,764,000 Jews were exterminated at the camp.

During the Nuremberg trials in 1945-46. Rajzman was the only witness to testify about Treblinka and was the chief witness at the Treblinka trial at Dusseldorf in the early 1950s. In 1965, he was a leading witness at the trial of Franz Stangl. commandant of Treblinka.

Perhaps the most damaging evidence which threatens the allegation that there was a policy to exterminate the Jews is the testimony of who many consider to be the worlds leading authority on the holocaust, Raul Hilberg. During the first seven week trial of Ernst Zündel in Canada in 1985, Hilberg was forced to make several extremely damning admissions:

The prosecution expert in the first trial was Raul Hilberg, an American professor of Jewish descent and author of the standard reference work, The Destruction of the European Jews (1961), which Paul Rassinier discussed in Le Drame des Juifs européens (The Drama of the European Jews). Hilberg began his testimony by explaining, without interruption, his theory about the extermination of the Jews. He was then cross-examined by Zündel's lawyer, Douglas Christie, who was assisted by Keltie Zubko and myself. Right from the start it was clear that Hilberg, who was the world's leading authority on the Holocaust, had never examined a single concentration camp, not even Auschwitz. He had still not examined any camp in 1985 when he announced the imminent appearance of a new edition of his main work in three volumes, revised, corrected and augmented. Although he did visit Auschwitz in 1979 for a single day as part of a ceremonial appearance, he did not bother to examine either the buildings or the archives. In his entire life he has never seen a "gas chamber," either in its original condition or in ruins. (For a historian, even ruins can tell tales). On the stand he was forced to admit that there had never been a plan, a central organization, a budget or supervision for what he called the policy of the extermination of the Jews. He also had to admit that since 1945 the Allies have never carried out an expert study of "the weapon of the crime," that is to say of a homicidal gas chamber. No autopsy report has established that even one inmate was ever killed by poison gas.

Hilberg said that Hitler gave orders for the extermination of the Jews, and that Himmler gave an order to halt the extermination on November 25, 1944 (such detail!). But Hilberg could not produce these orders. The defense asked him if he still maintained the existence of the Hitler orders in the new edition of his book. He dared to answer yes. He thereby lied and even committed perjury. In the new edition of his work (with a preface dated September 1984), Hilberg systematically deleted any mention of an order by Hitler. (In this regard, see the review by Christopher Browning, "The Revised Hilberg," Simon Wiesenthal Center Annual, 1986, p. 294). When he was asked by the defense to explain how the Germans had been able to carry out an undertaking as enormous as the extermination of millions of Jews without any kind of plan, without any central agency, without any blueprint or budget, Hilberg replied that in the various Nazi agencies there had been "an incredible meeting of minds, a consensus mind-reading by a far-flung bureaucracy."

In the following interview David Cole, a Jewish revisionist, questions historian, scholar and chair of the Historical Department at the Auschwitz State Museum, Franciszek Piper, about the anomalies and contradictions among the tour guides regarding the alleged gas chamber at the Auschwitz main camp. Though not wanting to be recorded, Cole eventually convinces Piper to go on the record after which he confirms what a senior tour guide had told Cole earlier in that the gas chamber in question was a mortuary and air-raid shelter that was reconstructed by the Soviets after the end of the war:

Video: David Cole Interviews Dr. Franciszek Piper, Director, Auschwitz State Museum

No researcher denies that a variety of methods were employed for disinfection purposes to combat diseases such as typhus, including gas chambers, steam, hot air, chlorine and simple soap and water, however gas chambers for the purpose of mass extermination is quite another matter. I am very much focused on the truth in this regard because Auschwitz and its alleged gas chambers are the very centerpieces of the Jewish holocaust. Without the victimization status afforded by the alleged slaughter of six million Jews, the political influence of Israel and the Jewish Zionists would be greatly compromised, as would the revenue stream enjoyed by Israel and many alleged holocaust survivors which is bestowed upon them in the form of holocaust reparations. This political influence is precisely why large institutions such as the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), under the guise of eliminating hate speech and racism, are dedicated to ensuring that the people of the world are supplied with a particular version of the historical record which supports the geopolitical aspirations of Israel and the Jewish Zionists.

Although several different methods are alleged to have been used to carry out the mass extermination of the Jews, the two most prevalent are hydrogen cyanide (HCN) and carbon monoxide (CO) gas, both of which cause death by asphyxiation. Hydrogen cyanide is an extremely lethal and highly flammable gas that was used only in the United States for the purpose of capital punishment until 1999. This gas is a very poor choice for preforming mass executions because it requires careful handling, moisture and temperature control, hermetically sealed enclosures with explosion-proof electrical fixtures and special equipment to introduce, circulate and exhaust the gas.

Carbon monoxide is said to have been produced by internal combustion engines, including at least one which was allegedly acquired from a captured Soviet tank. While carbon monoxide is far less dangerous to handle and less problematic than hydrogen cyanide, the problem is that we are told it was produced using the exhaust from diesel engines. Although diesel engines can produce a lot of thick, black soot when the engine is under a heavy load, the soot is a particulate which is not very toxic and they produce very little carbon monoxide compared to gasoline powered engines. Thus the use of carbon monoxide for the purpose of mass extermination is an even poorer choice than hydrogen cyanide. One may also question why the Germans would chose to use a diesel engine from a captured Soviet tank rather then their own engines for which they would have had the necessary parts and expertise to repair and maintain. Unfortunately, such claims where made by simpleminded people who failed to consider the technical and logistical challenges which they presented and thus many mainstream holocaust historians have been forced into a position where they are compelled to defend impossible and improbable claims.

Furthermore, the Germans had already been using wood-gas generators to power vehicles because of the war-time fuel shortage and severe rationing. These wood-gas generators output a great deal more carbon monoxide than either a gasoline or diesel powered engine and therefore there would have been an excellent source of CO gas for mass executions.

Regarding exposure to hydrogen cyanide, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) states:

  • Hydrogen cyanide is highly toxic by all routes of exposure and may cause abrupt onset of profound CNS, cardiovascular, and respiratory effects, leading to death within minutes.
  • Exposure to lower concentrations of hydrogen cyanide may produce eye irritation, headache, confusion, nausea, and vomiting followed in some cases by coma and death.
  • Hydrogen cyanide acts as a cellular asphyxiant. By binding to mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase, it prevents the utilization of oxygen in cellular metabolism. The CNS and myocardium are particularly sensitive to the toxic effects of cyanide.

Since hydrogen cyanide is highly toxic by all routes of exposure, it is therefore toxic not only when inhaled, but also when absorbed through the skin. In spite of its lethality, the following is a most incredible account of Moshe Peer, a Jew who claims he was sent to the gas chamber at Bergen-Belsen to be executed no less than six times, yet managed to survive:

As an 11 year-old boy held captive at the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp during World War II, Moshe Peer was sent to the gas chamber at least six times. Each time he survived, watching with horrors as many of the women and children gassed with him collapsed and died. To this day, Peer doesn't know how he was able to survive. "Maybe children resist better, I don't know," he said in an interview last week.

Regarding his nonsensical comment that children are more resistant to hydrogen cyanide, the Center for Disease Control has this to say:

Children exposed to the same levels of hydrogen cyanide as adults may receive larger doses because they have greater lung surface area:body weight ratios and increased minute volumes:weight ratios.

Most damaging to the claims put forth by Mr. Moshe Peer and The Nizkor Project which quotes this utter nonsense in their "Scholar FTP Archives", is the fact that both mainstream historians and revisionists alike have long agreed that there were no homicidal gas chambers at Bergen-Belsen, which happens to be the same camp from where many of the photographs and film of piles of corpses which are used to represent the holocaust and homicidal gas chambers were captured. This inconvenient fact did not deter Mr. Peer from engaging in speaking tours where he would relate his fictional story to impressionable young minds however. It may also be worthwhile to note that it was the allies, using allied equipment (the bulldozer in the image is a British model), were the ones depositing the bodies of the deceased into mass graves after the camps were liberated and under their control, during which time many thousands of inmates perished.

Children, we are told, were especially vulnerable to the whims of the evil Nazis and were sent to the gas chambers directly upon arrival at the "killing centers" according to this excerpt from a page entitled Children during the Holocaust on the the USHMM website:

Upon arrival at Auschwitz-Birkenau and other killing centers, the camp authorities sent the majority of children directly to the gas chambers.

Does it not seem odd that all these children in the images below, many of whom are apparently Jewish, not only lived to see the liberation of the camps, but appear to be in good health and spirits as well:

This next photograph is "the only photographic documentation of the entire extermination process at Auschwitz" according to the Holocaust Survivors website. The full caption reads:

From "The Auschwitz Album", the only photographic documentation of the entire extermination process at Auschwitz. An SS has just sent the woman with the infant to join those being sent to the crematoria; her hair is covered in the tradition of the Orthodox Jewish wife. A man is standing between the columns missing his pants and one shoe; this was a common occurrence in the overcrowded boxcars. On the left stand inmates in striped camp clothing. The main gate to Birkenau camp under which the trains pass is [at] the rear left of the photograph.

What do you see in the photograph above when the accompanying text from the Holocaust Survivors website is ignored? Where is the chaos and the beatings and the abundance of SS guards ripping babies in half segregating the old women and men? Is this image proof that six million Jews were sent to their deaths in homicidal gas chambers? Why does the Holocaust Survivors website, like many other pro-holocaust websites, only display small, low resolution images in certain instances where much higher quality images are readily available? Look very carefully at the faces of the people who are standing close to the SS (click the image to enlarge it) and you will quickly discover what it is that many exterminationists would rather you did not see in photographs like these.

Allegations of homicidal gas chambers in German concentration camps have been debunked time and time again as more data is gathered and wartime propaganda is revealed to be just that; propaganda. In fact, there is no credible evidence of mass execution by gassing in any of the camps, nor is there a single wartime document alluding to a policy of exterminating the Jews or anyone else. Paul Rassinier, a French revisionist, author, educator and former prisoner of both the Buchenwald and Dora concentration camps from 1943 until the end of the war, writes:

With regard to gas chambers, the almost endless procession of false witnesses and of falsified documents to which I have invited the reader's attention during this long study, proves, nevertheless, only one thing: never at any moment did the responsible authorities of the Third Reich intend to order — or, in fact, order — the extermination of the Jews in this or any other manner. Did such exterminations take place without orders? This question has haunted me for 15 years.

At the end of the war in 1945 it was alleged that exterminations occurred regularly at 22 camps throughout Germany and Poland using a wide variety of methods including hydrogen cyanide, carbon monoxide, electrocution, steam and even boiling water. A mere 5 years later that figure was officially reduced to just six camps, all of which were located in Poland where they could not be properly examined by forensic specialists because of their location behind the Soviet Iron Curtain. Rassinier writes:

After a lecture tour I made in Germany covering a dozen cities, the Institute for Contemporary History (Institut für Zeitgeschichte) of Muenchen, a democratic institute, of course, was obliged on 19 August 1962 to state officially that "there were no gas chambers in any of the concentration camps in the territory called by the Nazis 'Greater Germany,' "none in Dachau, none in Bergen Belsen, Mauthausen, Ravensbrück, etc. One concludes that the witnesses in the 13 Nuremberg trials and in the Eichmann trial who stated under oath that there were gas chambers in these camps were no more than vulgar false witnesses.

Another revealing piece of information regarding homicidal gas chambers can be found in the Lachout Document, Memo Number 31/48, which was issued by Allied Military Police HQ in Vienna on 1 January, 1948:

MEMO Nr:31/48

The Allied Committee of Inquiry has to date proven that no poison gas was used to kill prisoners at the following camps: Bergen-Belsen, Buchenwald, Dachau, Flossenburg, Gross-Rosen, Mauthausen and satellite camps Natzweiller, Nevengame, Niederhagen (Wewelsburg), Ravensbruck, Sachsenhausen, Stutthof, Theresienstadt.

In all cases where gassings were alleged, it could be proven that torture had been used to extract confessions and witnesses have lied.

Any former inmate who, during their debriefing continues to allege that poisoning gas was used to murder people (in particular Jews), are to be reported to this office and if they insist further, they are to be charged with perjury.

If 16 alleged mass-extermination camps have been dropped from the official historical record as a result of hard evidence, then should we not question the mainstream position that there were homicidal gas chambers at the remaining six camps in Poland?

Video: Auschwitz: The missing cyanide

In addition to the many claims discussed and sources linked to in this document, there are numerous problems that supporters of the homicidal gas chambers have failed to address with anything that could be considered a reasonable argument, including:

  • Most of the gas chambers which are claimed to have been used for extermination by exposure to hydrogen cyanide (Zyklon B) or carbon monoxide gas were not hermetically sealed, some having multiple unnecessary openings, thus being completely unsuitable for containing any type of deadly or flammable gas, of which HCN is both. Some of these facilities had unsealed floor drains that would have transported the gas to adjacent buildings connected to the same drainage system, thus endangering the the lives of the occupants of those buildings as well, including those that were occupied by the SS in at least one case. Although some or all of the drains are presently sealed, it appears they were sealed after the war since we are told in at least some cases the enclosures were washed down after each gassing and therefore they would have had to have been open to allow the water to drain.
  • In the gas chambers where hydrogen cyanide is alleged to have been used for extermination, there is a complete absence of blue staining which would result from repeated exposure to HCN gas, yet there is significant and clearly visible blue staining, as well as extremely high levels of hydrogen cyanide residue in test samples in the facilities where Zyklon B was used for non-homicidal (delousing) purposes. This blue staining is resilient and penetrating enough that in some cases it is abundantly clear even on the exterior walls of the enclosure which have been exposed to the weather for 60+ years. The alleged washing of the gas chambers is used to explain the lack of blue staining and cyanide byproducts found in test samples on the interior walls, however those making this claim are apparently unaware that 1), water apparently has the opposite effect, making the cyanide residue penetrate deeper into the wall, and 2), the humidity as a result of evaporation from the washing would have greatly reduced the rate at which the hydrogen cyanide gas evaporated from the Zyklon B pellets, thereby making subsequent gassing operations less efficient. Furthermore, if we ignore the science that indicates otherwise and assume that water would have washed away both the cyanide residue and the blue staining, then why is there significant blue staining present on the interior walls of the disinfection gas chamber at Majdanek but none at all in the alleged homicidal gas chambers at Auschwitz? If the gas chamber at Majdanek were used for homicidal purposes as alleged, would it too not have been washed down after the gassings?
  • Some of the unsealed gas chamber doors were nothing more than household wooden doors with windows in them. One might wonder what prevented the panic stricken occupants from breaking the glass or, more obviously, simply opening the non-locking doors and walking out. Fortunately the historians have an answer for this too where they tell us that there were guards positioned outside the doors who would shoot anyone trying to escape. This claim is completely ludicrous for several readily apparent reasons; 1), there can be no conceivable reason to install a door with a large, breakable window to contain a highly flammable and extremely toxic gas in the first place. If one needed to inspect the interior during a gassing operation, a simple port hole would have sufficed as in the case for the door on the disinfection gas chamber at Majdanek; 2), If the glass were broken for any reason, accidentally or otherwise, anyone in the vicinity would have been exposed to the hydrogen cyanide gas and the last thing on their mind would be punishing the person who broke the glass; 3), it is ludicrous to assume that the people inside a gas chamber, who are being subjected to an excruciating death, would make a conscious choice to remain there and die from asphyxiation rather than try to escape, regardless of the consequences; 4), again this claim fails to address the issue of the doors which were not gasketed and therefore could not have been used to seal an enclosure containing a deadly and highly flammable gas.
  • Some of the doors of alleged homicidal gas chambers opened inwards which presents a significant problem when removing the bodies, some of which would have fallen against the doors making them impossible to open without destroying the door. Yet we are led to believe that the Germans, who were accomplished engineers and had access to properly constructed disinfection gas chambers which could have been used as templates, completely failed to consider how they would remove the bodies after they were gassed. In the highly unlikely event that this obvious problem was overlooked during the design process, why would the builder not correct the problem later as it would have been blatantly apparent that the doors could not have been opened after the first gassing operation?
  • No proper mechanism existed in the alleged homicidal gas chambers to 1), safely introduce the Zyklon B pellets without exposing others in the vicinity to the gas; 2), to heat the pellets to a temperature necessary to produce the hydrogen cyanide gas in a timely manner, especially in cold weather and/or humid conditions where the release could take several hours; 3), to distribute the gas within the enclosures which were, we are told, so tightly packed with people that the flow of gas would have been greatly hindered; 4), to properly exhaust the gas after the operation was complete without putting everyone in the vicinity at risk of exposure, including SS personnel and other camp staff. Without a proper method of evacuating the gas, it is estimated that it could take days before a gas chamber could be safety reentered, yet we are told that gassings took only minutes and up to 6000 people were gassed each day (or was it more than 20,000?). The number of people said to have been processed per day, in any account, is impossible for multiple reasons, including 1), the time required to kill a human with cyanide gas, 2), the time required to evacuate the gas before the chamber could be reentered, 3), the time required to remove hundreds or thousands of bodies, and 4), the time required to cremate the bodies, which takes at least a full hour per corpse in a modern cremation oven. It is simple math, physics and logic problems such as these that exterminationists cannot possibly overcome and it is precisely for this reason that Raul Hilberg and others make utterly absurd statements such as "There was a Holocaust, which is, by the way, more easily said than demonstrated".
  • The gas chambers did not have explosion proof electrical fixtures which would have been required since hydrogen cyanide is extremely flammable at concentrations over 5.6%. While some argue that explosion-proof fixtures were not necessary because the concentration of gas required to cause death is below 5.6%, it is quite obvious that not everything always proceeds according to plan and safety measures are put in place for exactly this reason. Furthermore, the lower the gas concentration, the more time it would have taken to complete a gassing operation. The only reasonable conclusion, especially when considering the safety features that were incorporated into the delousing facilities, is that explosion proof fixtures were not installed because the enclosures were never used to contain a flammable gas.
  • The facilities alleged to be homicidal gas chambers at Auschwitz, which were actually mortuaries that doubled as air raid shelters, were in the same building as the crematory ovens. The problem with locating these features in the same building without a secure, hermetically sealed barrier dividing them, is that any of the highly flammable hydrogen cyanide gas that leaked from the gas chambers could have come into contact with the flames of the crematory ovens and caused a massive explosion.
  • Some of the alleged homicidal gas chambers at Auschwitz and elsewhere were located near or next to other occupied buildings, including prisoner barracks, hospitals and buildings used by the SS. They were also in clear view of the prisoners barracks areas. Since the alleged gas chambers were not hermetically sealed and lacked proper venting, anyone in the vicinity would have been at risk of exposure to the hydrogen cyanide gas not only when it was released, but throughout the entire gassing process. This is also the reason why it is improbable that anyone would have been quartered near the alleged gas chambers.
  • Claims that carbon monoxide gas from diesel engines was used for mass extermination are completely absurd for the simple reason that exhaust from a diesel internal combustion engine contains some oxygen and, more importantly, far less carbon monoxide than the exhaust from a gasoline internal combustion engine or wood-gas generators and therefore there is not enough of the gas present to cause death in a timely manner that is consistent with alleged numbers killed. While diesel exhaust can cause health problems such as lung cancer, it is an incredibly inefficient method to use for mass extermination and the Germans were well aware of how diesel engines operated.
  • Finally, in hundreds of tons of German documents captured by the allies, there is not a single document which can prove that homicidal gas chambers were ever constructed or employed for mass extermination, whether for use with hydrogen cyanide or carbon monoxide gas, nor a single document that alludes to a policy of exterminating the Jews. Had there been such a document, would it not be featured prominently at every holocaust memorial museum?

For more detail regarding the absurdity of the alleged homicidal gas chamber at the Majdanek concentration camp, see the following video by Eric Hunt:

Video: The Majdanek Gas Chamber Myth

Gas chamber door at Auschwitz
Thin, wooden, non-hermetically sealed door with a breakable glass window which is said to be the door of a homicidal gas chamber at Auschwitz

At he left is an image of one of the original doors for an alleged homicidal gas chamber at Auschwitz. Note that it is a cheaply constructed household type door with a breakable glass window and it is not hermetically sealed to prevent a deadly gas from escaping, much less is it capable of withstanding the force of "hundreds" or "thousands" of people pushing against it in an effort to escape asphyxiation. Apparently these flimsy wooden doors were substantially stronger than i have mistakenly assumed however, at least according to this account which contradicts the claims that those submissive Jews selected for extermination did not bother to try and save themselves from an excruciating death:

Secondly, most people tried to push their way to the door. It was psychological - they knew where the door was, maybe they could force their way out. It was instinctive, a death struggle. Which is why children and weaker people, and the aged, always wound up at the bottom. The strongest were on top. Because in the death struggle, a father didn't realize his son lay beneath him.

This account at the Holocaust Education & Archive Research Team website confirms the above and offers a bit more detail on the integrity of household doors with windows in them:

The whole transport exactly filled the mortuary to capacity - the doors were then sealed and the gas shaken down through the holes in the roof. I do not know how long the killing took. For a little while a humming sound could be heard - when the powder was thrown in, there were cries of gas, then a great bellowing and the trapped prisoners hurled themselves against both doors.

But the doors held, they were opened several hours later, so that the place could be aired.

While there is no explanation for the "humming" sound which cannot be attributed to the use of Zyklon B, the "cries of gas" are a bit more interesting since many people cannot smell hydrogen cyanide at all and those who can have described a faint bitter almond odor. Far more significant is the impossible robustness of the flimsy wooden doors and the windows in them which were able to withstand the "death struggles" of prisoners who "hurled themselves against both doors", especially when we account for the many thousands of people over the course of several years. At least the Germans were thoughtful enough to spare other prisoners in the vicinity of the gas chambers from having to listen to the death screams by running tractor engines to drown out the cries of the dying, according to the Jewish Virtual Library.

Perhaps even more damaging is that the alleged eyewitness quotes above debunk an important aspect of the holocaust by stating that the gas chamber doors "were opened several hours later" and not several minutes later as other alleged eyewitnesses have claimed. The problem here is that the number of people that were alleged to have been exterminated in gas chambers is not remotely possible if each gassing required several hours. Again the mainstream holocaust historians are forced into a corner from which they are obligated to defend an indefensible position.

In addition to the mathematically impossible number of victims and cremation times, let us also consider the efficiency of the alleged gassing operation in Krema I at the Auschwitz Main Camp, or rather the complete lack thereof. Auschwitz officials would have us believe that the gassing process resembled that which is illustrated in the diagram below. In this scenario, we are told that each day many thousands of prisoners were herded through several small rooms, 90 degree turns and narrow doorways. After the gassing operation was complete, the bodies would have to be transported through a narrow doorway to the crematory ovens where they were incinerated before being transported out of the building to be disposed of.

Lack of Efficiency of Alleged Homicidal Gassing Operations at Auschwitz I
Diagram depicting the very inefficient route prisoners followed during alleged gassings in Krema I at Auschwitz I

This nonsensical process is staggeringly inefficient, yet the Germans are certainly not regarded as being stupid nor inefficient. The layout of this building is logical only if it was a morgue and/or crematorium where a relatively small number of bodies were expected to be processed.

The cremation process alone would have required approximately 50 hours per gassing if we assume a number of only 300 prisoners (we are told the "gas chamber" in Krema I could hold several hundred). This estimate is the result of simple and conservative mathematics where each corpse would take one hour to burn (the minimum time in a modern crematory oven) in the six crematory ovens that were available and therefore 300 people / 6 ovens = 50 hours of incineration time. This logic is constant for every crematory oven in every camp.

Exterminationists argue that the extremely inefficient and radically different design of the homicidal gas chambers was due to the fact that the task of building them was left entirely to the camp staff to figure out. This bewildering claim, even if it were true, completely ignores the resources that were available to the staff, including physical access to non-homicidal gas chambers which could be used as templates, as well as access to the engineers who built them.

Because of the formidable challenges associated with the larger size of the alleged homicidal gas chambers, including the increased hazards in terms of accidental exposure, explosions, and preventing the occupants from escaping, it is unthinkable that the Germans would have completely overlooked the available resources, choosing instead to completely reinvent the wheel in the most inefficient way imaginable.

One of the most significant problems that destroys the credibility of the pro-holocaust historians and the holocaust is that, as their claims are debunked one after the other, they are forced to alter the previous account in an attempt to allow for new evidence and the revised version is often more outlandish than the previous. For example, we were fist told that an entire gassing operation, including cremation, cold be completed in as few as 20 mminutes. After revisionists pointed out that it is clearly impossible to cremate the number of bodies said to have been cremated in the time a lotted, the story was changed, the new version alleging that multiple bodies were cremated simultaneously in a single oven. Requests for forensic investigations of the alleged mass graves where these millions of bodies would have to be buried are denied based on religious grounds. Perhaps the most prolific solution to countering any challenge which is critical of the Jewish holocaust is to simply ignore the evidence entirely and resort to personal attacks and utilizing holocaust denial laws, which in reality are the only options the exterminationists have since they cannot produce any credible evidence whatsoever which supports a Hitler policy to exterminate Jews, much less any physical evidence of mass extermination.

Gas chambers used for delousing
Gas chambers used for delousing

The following interview with Walter Schreiber, a supervising engineer for the construction of gas chambers, appears in a book written by German chemist Germar Rudolf titled 'The Rudolf Report - Expert Report on Chemical and Technical Aspects of the 'Gas Chambers' of Auschwitz' (emphasis added):

These crematoria are entirely comparable in size, equipment, and manner of construction to other similar installations built in the Third Reich at that time, as well as with those built today. In this connection, reference is made to the trial of the builder of the cremation installations in Birkenau camp. In 1972, the court acquitted the two defendants, master builder W. Dejaco and master builder F. Ertl, since suspicion of aiding and abetting in mass murder could not be corroborated. An expert report drawn up during this trial on the surviving plans and documents on the construction of the crematoria led to the conclusion that these buildings could not have been used or modified so as to serve as instruments of mass murder. In an eyewitness statement made recently, one of the master builders at Auschwitz, Walter Schreiber, stated as follows on the planning of these crematoria:

Q: In which positions were you active?
A: As supervising engineer, I inspected the Huta Corporation and dealt with the Zentralbauleitung of the SS. I also audited the invoices of our firm.

Q: Did you enter the camp? How did that happen?
A: Yes. One could walk everywhere without hindrance on the streets of the camp and was only stopped by the guards upon entering and leaving the camp.

Q: Did you see or hear anything about killings or mistreatment of inmates?
A: No. But lines of inmates in a relatively poor general condition could be seen on the streets of the camp.

Q: What did the Corporation build?
A: Among other things, crematoria II and III with the large morgues.

Q: The prevalent opinion is that these large morgues were gas chambers for mass killings.
A: Nothing of the sort could be deduced from the plans made available to us. The detailed plans and provisional invoices drawn up by us refer to these rooms as ordinary cellars.

Q: Do you know anything about introduction hatches in the reinforced concrete ceilings?
A: No, nothing more from memory. But since these cellars were also intended to serve the auxiliary purpose of air raid shelters, introduction holes would have been counter-productive. I would certainly have expressed an objection to such an arrangement.

Q: Why were such large cellars built, when the water table in Birkenau was so extremely high?
A: I don't know. Originally, however, above-ground morgues were to be built. The construction of the cellars caused great problems in retention and sealing.

Q: Would it be conceivable that you were deceived and that the SS nevertheless had gas chambers to be built by your firm without your knowledge?
A: Anyone who knows anything about what happens on a building site knows that that is impossible.

Q: Do you know any gas chambers?
A: Naturally. Everyone in the east knew about disinfection chambers. We also built disinfection chambers, which look quite different. We built such installations and knew what they looked like, even after the necessary installations. As a building firm, we often had work to do after installation of the machinery...

Q: When did you learn that your firm was supposed to have built gas chambers for industrial mass killing?
A: Only after the end of the war.

Q: Weren't you quite amazed about it?
A: Yes! After the war I made contact with my former boss in Germany and asked him about it.

Q: What did you learn?
A: He also only learned about it after the war, but he assured me that the Huta Corporation certainly did not build the cellars in question as gas chambers.

Q: Would building alterations be conceivable after the withdrawal of the Huta Corporation?
A: Conceivable, sure, but I would rule that out on the basis of time factors. After all, they would have needed corporations again, the SS couldn't do that on their own, even with inmates. Based on the technical requirements for the operation of a gas chamber, which only became known to me later, the building erected by us would have been entirely unsuited for the purpose in regard to the necessary machinery and practicable operation.

Q: Why didn't you publish that?
A: After the war, first, I had other problems. And now it is no longer permitted.

By "no longer permitted", Schreiber means that it is illegal in his country to publish information that could be construed as holocaust denial, even if that information is in the form of hard scientific evidence delivered in a court of law by creditable professionals. As Kevin Alfred Strom stated, "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?".

Germar Rudolf again covers the subject of the alleged homicidal gas chambers at Auschwitz in a more recent documentary titled The Chemistry of Auschwitz - Buna Rubber, Zyklon B, Prussian Blue and the Gas Chambers.

Video: The Chemistry of Auschwitz Updated (December 2018)

Continuing with the Walter Schreiber interview:

Q: Have you been interrogated as a witness in this matter?
A: No Allied, German, or Austrian agency has ever taken an interest in my knowledge of the construction of crematoria II and III, I or my other activity in the former general government. I was never interrogated in this matter, although my services for the Huta Corporation were known. I mentioned them in all my later CVs and recruitment applications. Since knowledge of the facts is dangerous, however, I never felt any urge to disseminate it. But now, when the lies are getting increasingly bolder and contemporary witnesses like myself are slowly but surely dying off, I am glad that someone is willing to listen and set down the way it really was. I have serious heart trouble and can die at any moment, it's time now.

Gas chamber sign at Dachau shower room
Former sign at the Dachau shower room stating that it was a gas chamber disguised as a shower but never used as a gas chamber

It was once alleged that hundreds of thousands of Jews were murdered in a gas chamber disguised as a shower room at the Dachau concentration camp in Germany. This allegation underwent several iterations as one after another was debunked, the current nonsensical claim being that Dachau served as a "school of violence" for the SS.

If you search the Dachau museum website for the words "gas chamber", of course no results are returned since it is no longer alleged that executions by gassing took place there.

Former U.S. Army captain Homer G. Richey wrote in a letter to the Institute for Historical Review:

Toward the end of World War II I was a US Army captain on the staff of Ambassador Robert Murphy, political advisor to General Eisenhower. I was at Dachau about a month after it had been liberated, either the end of May or the beginning of June, 1945. There was no gas chamber there, nor did I see one in the process of construction. What did occur was that some higher authority in the American occupation government, whether a civilian or military, I don't know, decreed that a gas chamber should be built, which was subsequently done.

I was also at the Buchenwald camp a few days after it was liberated on April 11,1945. There was a crematory there but no gas chamber.

The authority in the American government that Richey wrote of was the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), the precursor to the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). The OSS, British intelligence and the Soviets all manufactured propaganda aimed at demonizing the Germans.

United States government officials, including Dwight D. Eisenhower himself, toured Dachau and were shown the "gas chamber" as evidence of the holocaust. In preparation for their arrival, the OSS remodeled an existing shower room by installing a false ceiling and fake shower heads that were not connected to any plumbing in order to sell the story to the U.S. delegation. This lie was sold to the public and the U.S. congress, and was presented as fact during the Nuremberg trials where it was used to convict and hang many of the Nazi "war criminals". Only after the Nazi officials were sentenced was it admitted that gassings never took place at Dachau.

Video: The Holocaust - How Psychological Warfare Shapes Belief & Culture

From the Nuremberg trial transcript, page 470, we read:

Inside the showerbath [ at Dachau]- the gas vents. On the ceiling- the dummy shower heads. In the engineers' room- the intake and outlet pipes. Push buttons to control inflow and outtake of gas. A hand-valve to regulate pressure. Cyanide powder was used to generate the lethal smoke. From the gas chamber, the bodies were removed to the crematory.

The fact that there were no homicidal gas chambers at Dachau did not stop the Americans from murdering up to 150 camp guards by shooting them in a coal yard during the liberation of the camp. The entire farce of the Dachau "gas chamber" is described in greater detail in the following video:

Video: Inside Dachau

It is admitted even by the exterminationists that the vast majority of Zyklon B was used for delousing purposes, not homicidal. Typhus and other diseases became massive concerns within the concentration camps as well as throughout occupied Europe. Neither exterminationists nor revisionists deny that the Germans were disinfecting people, clothing, bedding and buildings to combat these diseases, or that prisoners were given hair cuts and uniforms for the same reason. Does this not cast a bit of doubt on the sinister reasons we are given for the piles of clothing, hair and empty Zyklon B containers we are repeatedly subjected to in the Jewish controlled media? What do these images really tell us when the accompanying clichés and violin music are stripped away? What they tell us is that the Germans were spending an enormous amount of time, effort and resources to preserve life by delousing camp facilities, providing clothing and cutting hair to rid the people of parasites, yet this simple truth is twisted into something infinitely more sinister that would have the world believe that the treatment of disease is proof that the Germans were nothing more than mass murdering, baby-killing barbarians. While i am not insinuating that all German military or SS personnel acted in an ethical manner, we must be honest and open-minded enough to the facts and evidence at hand and question what it is we think we know about Germany's role in the Second World War and the so-called "Jewish holocaust".

According to the books, The Hoax of the Twentieth Century by Arthur R. Butz and in Auschwitz: A Judge Looks at the Evidence by Wilhelm Stäglich, the rumors of homicidal gas chambers at Auschwitz began with three Jews; Alfred Wetzler, Rudolf Vrba and Rabbi Michael Dov Ber Weissmandel. These rumors were then promoted by representatives of the World Jewish Congress. From the book How the British Obtained the Confessions of Rudolf Höss by Robert Faurisson, we read:

We have known for some time that the Auschwitz myth is of an exclusively Jewish origin. Arthur R. Butz has related the facts in his book, The Hoax of the Twentieth Century, as has Wilhelm Stäglich in The Auschwitz Myth. The principal authors of the creation and the peddling of the "rumor of Auschwitz" have been, successively, two Slovaks, Alfred Wetzler (or Weczler) and Rudolf Vrba (or Rosenberg or Rosenthal); then a Hungarian, Rabbi Michael Dov Ber Weissmandel (or Weissmandl); then, in Switzerland, representatives of the World Jewish Congress like Gerhard Riegner, who were in touch with London and Washington; and finally Americans like Harry Dexter White, Henry Morgenthau Jr. and Rabbi Stephen Samuel Wise. Thus was born the famous World Refugee Board Report on Auschwitz and Birkenau, published in Washington in November 1944. Copies of this report were included in the files of the judges advocate general in charge of prosecuting the Germans involved in the Auschwitz camp. It constituted the official version of the story of the alleged gassing of the Jews in that camp. Most probably it was used as a reference work by the inquirers-interrogators-torturers of "the Commandant of Auschwitz." All the names here mentioned are those of Jews.

In his book 'The Hoax of the Twentieth Century' in the chapter 'The War Refugee Board (WBR) Report: Birth of the Auschwitz Legend', Butz writes:

The high level Washington commitment to the claim that Auschwitz was an extermination camp came in November 1944, after the claimed termination of the killing program, in the form of the WRB report (the claim had appeared many times in the propaganda earlier in 1944; those stories are reviewed in Chapter 5). The issuing of the report was carried by the New York Times on November 26, 1944, (page 1) and some excerpts were given. The WRB report is described as two reports, one written by "two young Slovakian Jews" and the other by "a Polish major," all of whom had been inmates at Auschwitz from the spring of 1942 until the spring of 1944, when they escaped (the two Jews on April 7).

There is an additional short supplement said to be written by two other young Jews who escaped on May 27, 1944, and made their way to Slovakia (under German domination until 1945) to make their report, which is said to have been received in Switzerland on August 6, 1944. The authors are completely anonymous, and this anonymity is duly apologized for "whose names will not be disclosed for the time being in the interest of their own safety."

In his memoir, 'From the Depths', Rabbi Michael Dov-Ber Weissmandel writes:

May 15th, 1944 - In a cave near Lublin, Poland.

Sholom and Greetings.

We send you this special message to inform you that yesterday the Germans began the deportation of Jews from Hungary. It is the beginning of deportation of all the Hungarian Jews.

Every day, twelve thousand souls are being taken off. Four deportations of forty-five such train-loads move daily out of Hungary. Within twenty six days all that area will have been deported.

The deported ones go to Auschwitz to be put to death by cyanide gas. A great number are dead on arrival. The Germans allow a few of the strongest to stay alive. Those who are allowed to live are branded with a number burned into their arm and the Star of David burned into their chest.

Most of these privileged ones die within a month. Others take their place.

Those who go directly from the train to the gas chambers to be suffocated are not branded. They are completely consumed in the ovens and leave no evidence behind. These are 95% of each transport.

The dead bodies are burned in specially made ovens. Each oven burns 12 bodies an hour. In February there were 36 ovens burning. We have learned that more have been built.

Information supplied us by a few eyewitnesses reveals that in February there were four disposal buildings. We have learned that more have been built since then.

Formerly, the Germans killed and burned the Jews in the Forest of Birkenwald, near Auschwitz. Now the killing and burning take place in the buildings shown on the enclosed map.

In December, the Germans built special trains to transport the Jews of Hungary to their extermination. This is the schedule of Auschwitz, from yesterday to the end; twelve thousand Jews - men, women and children, old men, infants, healthy and sick ones - are to be suffocated daily and their bones and ashes are to be used to fertilize the German fields.

Let us consider some of the flaws in Weissmandel's memoir:

  1. The Star of David was never "burned" into the chests of Jewish prisoners at Auschwitz nor anywhere else. This claim is not mentioned even on the USHMM website.
  2. It is not even remotely possible to cremate 12 bodies per hour in a single crematory oven of 1940's technology, a process which takes an hour or longer per body in a modern day crematory oven.
  3. Obviously 12,000 Jews could not have been killed daily in homicidal gas chambers that did not exist, however even if we imagine they did exist, simple mathematical calculations make this claim utterly impossible.
  4. There is no evidence that crematory remains were used to manufacture soap, fertilizer, or anything else.

Nevertheless, in the end we are left with the fact that several German military personnel did confess to the systematic murder of Jews and other undesirables, however it is now well known that these confessions were obtained through torture. The following quote from American Atrocities in Germany by Judge Edward L. Van Roden sheds light on how these so-called confessions were attained:

Our investigators would put a black hood over the accused's head and then punch him in the face with brass knuckles, kick him, and beat him with rubber hose. Many of the German defendants had teeth knocked out. Some had their jaws broken.

All but two of the Germans, in the 139 cases we investigated, had been kicked in the testicles beyond repair. This was Standard Operating Procedure with American investigators.

Video: HoloHoax Survivors who Tell the Truth

Auschwitz was an extremely large complex of over 40 sub-camps where desperately needed rubber and other materials were produced for the German war effort. The three primary camps were Auschwitz I, the main camp, Birkenau, also referred to as Auschwitz II, and Monowitz, or Auschwitz III. The main camp and Birkenau were used primarily for inmate housing while Monowitz contained the factories, including IG Farben, where they worked.

Though the German concentration, labor and transit camps were not vacation resorts, it seems they provided adequate temporary living conditions during most of the war, Auschwitz included. The exception was during the last few months of the war when conditions deteriorated greatly in some of the camps due to the allied advance and subsequent overcrowding, that they could not be considered habitable by any reasonable standard.

Regarding Auschwitz, it is important to point out what many tend to conveniently overlook, and that which further erodes the longstanding myth that homicidal gas chambers were employed in an effort to exterminate Jews. Along with a hospital and post office, there were several recreational and other other facilities available for use by the prisoners, including a swimming pool, cinema, library, kitchens, areas for music, art and sports and even a brothel.

Video: The Auschwitz Football Pitch

Although most everything was in short supply during the war, Auschwitz prisoners could purchase some convenience items from the camp stores when they were available, such as cigarettes and even weak beer. Purchases were paid for using coupons or script the prisoners received in return for their labor in the factories, or money sent to them by their families or support organizations. This fact is even admitted on the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum website, though this obscure and brief mention of it is the only one i was able to find:

[...] the payment of scrip that could be used in the camp canteen (which offered cigarettes and other low-value trifles for sale), and free visits to the camp bordello (which opened in the Monowice camp in 1943).

The Auschwitz Album

The prisoner swimming pool is not always shown to visitors who tour Auschwitz and, when it is, they may be told that, yes, it was a swimming pool, but only for the SS, or that, no, it was not a swimming pool, but rather a water reservoir constructed for fighting fires which was built in the shape of a swimming pool. In another odd revision of the story it is claimed that the pool was originally a water reservoir that was converted to a swimming pool for use by the SS.

In the following photograph, note the perimeter fence line on the right and the prisoner barracks area on the left, clearly indicating that the pool was located within the perimeter fence where the inmates could easily access it:

Sign at Auschwitz I Swimming PoolBesides the obvious contradiction of the Auschwitz tour guides and historians, the claim that the swimming pool was not a swimming pool does not seem to 'hold water' when one examines the photographs and asks why a fire fighting reservoir was built in the shape of a swimming pool, complete with swimming pool amenities including decorative fixtures, a high dive, starter blocks and multiple ladders and steps leading into it. Likewise, the claim that it was a swimming pool, but only for the SS, makes no sense whatsoever when one considers why the SS, who were quartered on the other side of the camp, would want to swim in a pool which was located within the prisoner barracks area where they would be exposed to angry mobs who would have liked nothing more than to drown them in their own pool for sending their family members to the gas chambers.

Below is another view of the same pool, again showing that it was located within the prisoner barracks area of the camp (the perimeter fence is out of frame on the left). In addition to the diving platform and starter blocks, if you look closely at the center starter block you will see a decorative fixture on it. The fixture is an animal head with its mouth open, inside of which there appears to be a nozzle, presumably for filling the pool or perhaps for circulating the water:

There is also a very nice panoramic view of the pool available as a KML file which you can view in Google Earth if you have it installed.

Searching the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial Museum for the phrase "swimming pool", revealed only a single relevant document. Under the heading "THE FIRST TRANSPORT TO AUSCHWITZ", i found following statement from a polish prisoner who was transported to Auschwitz in 1940:

Stanislaw Bialas: 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.

Other statements which mention a pool or bathing, such as this one by another Polish prisoner who arrived at Auschwitz on the same transport, seems to imply that there was a different type of pool which was used for decontamination:

Adam Jurkiewicz: There were inscriptions in Hebrew over the door, and there was a big room inside with a swimming pool, where they let us bathe.

Marc Klein, former professor at the Strasbourg medicine faculty and a former inmate at Auschwitz, wrote the following in his 1947 book, 'Auschwitz I Stammlager':

The working hours were modified on Sundays and holidays, when most of the kommandos were at leisure. Roll call was at around noon; evenings were devoted to rest and to a choice of cultural and sporting activities. Football, basketball, and water-polo matches (in an open-air pool built within the perimeter by detainees) attracted crowds of onlookers . It should be noted that only the very fit and well-fed, exempt from the harsh jobs, could indulge in these games which drew the liveliest applause from the masses of other detainees.

If you search the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum for the keywords 'auschwitz swimming pool', again we discover almost nothing relevant except for one document under RG-50 (record group 50) which is a transcript of an audio interview. This document has since been removed from the USHMM website. In it we read:

40.24 A swimming pool was also built for non-Jews.

Many other camps had swimming pools as well, including Ravensbrueck, Theresienstadt, Bergen-Belsen, Esterwegen, Ebensee, Treblinka and Mauthausen.

Unless there were threats of physical violence breaking out, there was no forced segregation by the camp staff that i am aware of in any of the camps. While different ethnic groups may have preferred to gather among themselves, i have found no evidence that prisoners were segregated by the SS, whose presence in the prisoner areas of the camp appears to have been minimal. (in all of the photographs of the camps during the time they were operating normally, one often has to look carefully to find any SS staff at all). Jews and others seem to have been treated equally and treated well for the most part, with the exception of the time period toward the end of the war when conditions in the camps became deplorable because of the pressure being applied by the allies. During these last days of the war, hierarchies developed among the prisoners in some of the camps and food was denied to the lower classes.

Again, it is not my intention to assert that the German concentration, labor or transit camps were tantamount to resorts, nor that all of the prisoners had unrestricted access to all of the camp facilities all of the time, however in order to better understand what Auschwitz was really like, we cannot simply ignore the fact that 1), the aforementioned recreational facilities existed; 2), these facilities were located in the prisoner barracks area and 3), that their presence is not entirely consistent with a facility where the primary purposes is alleged to have been the mass extermination of the European Jews and other undesirables. Considering all of the land available at the Auschwitz-Birkenau site, including the separate area were the SS were quartered, it seems highly illogical to posit that such facilities were built for use exclusively by the SS.
