The literally thousands of tons of paperwork which the Allies captured from the National Socialist state at the end of the second World War give us a more detailed record of the functioning of Hitler's Germany than we have for almost any other time and place. Hardly ever in history have so many raw records been released without the oversight and censorship of a self-protective government. In one respect this immense documentary treasure trove proved unsatisfactory: it contained not a trace of the plans for the extermination of the Jews, nor of the industrialized mass execution of millions of Jews in gas chambers at Auschwitz, Treblinka, etc.

Doctor Kubovy, from the Tel Aviv "Documentation Center", admitted in 1960 "There is no document signed by Hitler, Himmler or Heydrich which speaks of exterminating the Jews... and in 1981, Walter Laqueur, author of "The Terrible Secret", admitted: "Until now, we have never found Hitler's order to destroy the European Jewish community, and in all probability the order was never given."

In Poliakov and Wulf’s "Das Dritte Reich und die Juden: Dokumente und Aufsätze" (Berlin, 1955), the most that they can assemble are statements extracted after the war from people like Höttl, Ohlendorf and Wisliceny, the latter under torture in a Soviet prison. In the absence of any evidence, therefore, Poliakov is forced to write: “The three or four people chiefly involved in drawing up the plan for total extermination are dead, and no documents survive.”

This seems very convenient. Quite obviously, both the plan and the “three or four” people are nothing but nebulous assumptions on the part of the writers, and are entirely un-provable.

Walter Laqueur, the Director of the Institute of Contemporary History in London, wrote in "The Terrible Secret",  Boston: 1981,  that "Auschwitz internees who had served their sentences were released and returned to their home countries. If Auschwitz had actually been a top secret extermination center, the Germans would certainly not have released inmates who 'knew' what was happening in the camp". 

In his book, "Was niemand wissen wollte," (Ullstein, 1982) he states that 982 inmates were released in 1942; a few more releases took place in 1943, and in 1944.



 


 

This extremely well-preserved echo from the Nazi Holocaust is an original postcard sent from by one of the very first Polish inmates interned in Auschwitz. It was written on an official formulary Auschwitz postcard. The front bears the original Hitler stamp cancelled at the Auschwitz 2 post office on 2 February 1942.

In the middle, vertically written section the inmate, Johann Klausa, signed his name, indicated his prisoner number (#1124), birthdate (22 November 1908), block number (13) and postal address (K.L. Auschwitz O/S Postamt 2).

Auschwitz archives indicate he was one of 100 prisoners sent from the police prison in Sosnowitz to Auschwitz on 25 June  1940, barely one month after the camp had opened. The historical value of this item is increased significantly by the fact that Klausa was one of the inmates to be released from Auschwitz. [Johann Karski's brother was also released from Auschwitz during the war].

Archives of the State Museum of Auschwitz indicate Johann Klausa’s release occurred on 27 November 1943 after he surviving nearly 3 and one-half years in the camp. The card was written on 18 January 1942 to a brother living in Hohenlinde, Kreis Kattowitz, Oberschlesien (occupied Poland).

The message contents are written in German in the older cursive style. The face of the letter is imprinted "Konzentrationslager Auschwitz" along with the camp commandant’s regulations for sending and receiving mail. Also on front appears the boxed red 3-line handstamp, "Postzensurstelle K.L.Auschwitz...Geprüft" applied and initialed by the SS censor.

Dear brother and sister in law

I'm writing you a few words again and inform you that I am in best of health and hope the same of you. How are things with brother Wilhelm is he still in Witebsk or is he already further on than that has he written in recent times? Why do you write so little? You can write every fourteen days and more often. What is Fernes (?) doing, does he often come to see you? Best wishes to you all and acquaintances.

The camp kitchen - one of the largest service buildings in Auschwitz, with state-of-the-art cooking facilities.
There were  twelve of these throughout the camp.

The caloric content of the diet was carefully monitored by camp and Red Cross delegates. It only deteriorated in Auschwitz and other camps towards the end of the war when German railroads and the entire transport system collapsed under constant aerial attacks.








  
Air raid shelter door at Auschwitz

Hans Lamker and Hans Nowak have shown in detail how the SS installed modern (and highly) expensive microwave delousing facilities to protect the lives of inmates. [1]

 

Together with Michael Gärtner and Werner Rademacher, they are currently working on a comprehensive history of the Auschwitz camp, equipped with all means necessary to ensure the survival of tens of thousands of prisoners: hospitals, dentists, kitchens, laundries, butchers, as well as recreation facilities like sport fields and gardens.


Together with the fact that the overall costs of erecting this camp complex were on the order of magnitude of some five hundred million dollars, these facilities clearly contradict an intention by the German authorities to use this camp as an extermination center. There are cheaper ways of killing humans than to spend 500 dollars per capita. [2]

Compare it to the postwar American death camps along the river Rhein in Germany, where German POWs were held captured and died by the thousands between 1945 and 1947 due to lack of food, water, and medical care. All you need for an extermination camp is barbed wire and a few guards, just a few thousand dollars in materials.

Did the Inmates in Auschwitz know?

Traditional Holocaust historiasns claim in many of their arguments that in Auschwitz nobody knew what was going on 24 hours a day at the other side of the fence. That is the only way to explain many passages of what survivors tell about their experiences in the camp, mainly a common life in a work camp.

But...according to Eliezer Hauser, the brother of a Sonderkommando, the smell of burning bodies from the crematoria was constantly in the air.

When Elie Wiesel stepped off the cattle car at the Auschwitz subcamp Birkenau, "he smelled the stench of burning human flesh and saw the crematorium throwing its flames into the sky..."

Sonderkommandos were inmates and had contact with other inmates. Innmates were taken out to work in the manufacturing facilities in nearby towns, transferred out, escaped and were released.
 
So it is impossible to say that someone did not know what was supposedly happening there. Such a thing should be known by everybody... and that doesn't match at all with MOST of survivors tales.

The story says: 'two thousand per batch waited outside the gas chambers while two thousand inside were being gassed, they went in and never came out'
... impossible for other inmates to miss that....

The story says: 'screams of those being gassed could be heard'
... so then, other inmates did 'know'....

The story says: 'bodies were piled high outside the crematoriums'
... impossible for other inmates to miss that....

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

The story says: 'trainloads of in coming Jews were immediately sent to the gas chambers, they were gassed on arrival'
... impossible for other inmates to miss seeing the trains unloaded and the contents disappear....

The story says: 'after being gassed, luggage, shoes, and hair were left behind, it's proof of extermination'
... piles of hair & possessions left behind, the people are nowhere to be seen, but the inmates curiously wouldn't have noticed....

Fact:

The Germans left thousands of Jews behind when they evacuated. This was after the Jews were given a CHOICE to leave with them or stay and await the advancing Soviets. MOST CHOSE TO RETREAT WITH THE GERMANS.








The Buna Works

The Buna Works, which Dr. Morgen mentioned, was another name for .  So, two top SS officials knew about the gas chamber at Monowitz, but what about the prisoners?  Did they also know about the Monowitz gas chamber.  Yes!




Strangely, the Allies did not do any research on the Auschwitz camps, or they would have discovered that there was a “Gaskammer” in the Monowitz camp, where they were bombing the factories. 

The most frequent criticism of President Roosevelt, who failed to stop the Holocaust, centers on the claim that U.S. planes could have bombed the tracks leading to the Auschwitz II camp, aka Birkenau.  U.S. planes did, in fact, bomb the railroad tracks in Germany, which caused even more deaths of Jews, but did not stop the gassing.  For example, the deaths of thousands of Jews on the “death train” to Dachau.

Incidentally, one of the American pilots who flew over Auschwitz in 1944 was young George McGovern, the future presidential nominee.

Bombing the homicidal gas chambers at Auschwitz would not have done much good because the disinfection buildings, where the clothing was deloused, could have then been used to kill the Jews.


The photo above shows one of the buildings where the clothing of the prisoners at the Auschwitz II camp was disinfected with Zyklon-B, the same gas that was used to murder the Jews in the crematoria buildings.








 

The Mauthausen concentration camp was established shortly after Germany annexed Austria in March 1938.

Next to the Alps, the Carpathian Range is the major mountain barrier of Europe. Extending about 900 miles (1,450 kilometers) across south-central Europe, dividing eastern Europe north and south.

The ICRC's Special Office in Arolsen keeps track of all officially documented deaths in German concentration camps of the Third Reich. A summary from December 31, 1983, documents a total of 282,077 deaths.

Since the Red Cross found more deaths at Mauthausen, the Austrian camp in the Czech corridor, than at Auschwitz, it would stand to reason most of the South East European Jews went there rather than over the Carpathian mountains into Poland. Why would the Germans ship them the way around or across the Carpathians, when the very disciplined camp of Mauthausen in Austria was much closer?

It is clear that Mauthausen housed the Hungarian, Rumanian, Czech, and Bulgarian Jews. Just due to railway routes, geographics, logistics.

The theory of the  mass destruction of the Hungarian Jews is based on documents of the Nuremberg Tribunal, but such documents are by no means always genuine, or true, and only ever provide evidence for deportations - they never document an extermination. One is reminded of the example of Dachau, the concentration camp where the IMT alleged that hundreds of thousands were gassed, a claim which in the end turned out to be nothing more substantial than an atrocity propaganda lie.

The US War Refugee Board’s Final Summary Report states that more than 200,000 Jews from Budapest were exempted from deportations following negotiations with the SS. Also, in its report the International Red Cross stated that some 100,000 Jews poured into Budapest from the provinces.

The Encyclopaedia  Britannica in its 1963 edition states that:

"At Mauthausen, one of the extermination camps in Austria, close to 2,000,000 people, mostly Jews, were exterminated between 1941 and 1945"

Now, the death toll has been revised:

"An estimated 197,464 prisoners passed through the Mauthausen camp system between August 1938 and May 1945. At least 95,000 died there. More than 14,000 were Jewish."

--United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, Washington, DC

An exaggeration of 1,905,000!

This camp is no longer considered by official sources who support the holocaust legend as an “extermination camp,” nor is it still claimed that any camps on German soil were either.



 






Jean-Claude Pressac 

In September 1983, a book by the French pharmacist Jean-Claude Pressac was hailed by the world's "free press" with deafening fanfare as the rebuttal of the revisionists. It is called Les crématoires d'Auschwitz , and also appeared in German from Piper Verlag under the title of Die Krematorien von Auschwitz. Pressac had already published a gigantic book under the title Auschwitz: Technique and Operation of the Gas Chambers, which is, however, hardly mentioned by the mass media.

In the introduction to his second book, Pressac repeatedly promises that he will not base his book on eyewitness testimonies, but will instead rely solely upon documents. During the reading, the astonished reader then notes that, every time the author begins to speak of concrete "gassing" operations, he cites an eyewitness as his source! As "definitive proof" of the existence of the execution gas chambers, he cites a document which contains not a single word relating to the gassing of human beings; it is simply a business letter related to the ordering of "gas testers".

Pressac never mentions any of the scientific or technical arguments of the revisionists. Not a single revisionist book is mentioned.

In the absence of any documentary proofs for the gassings of even one Jew in  Auschwitz, Pressac cites a few "criminal traces" in both his first and his second work; these "traces" are supposed to indicate the gassing of human beings.

Millions of people are gassed to death, and the only "proof" for this huge crime, dished up by "today's leading expert on Auschwitz", is nonsense like this! In late 1995, an anthology of articles critical of Pressac was published [ Auschwitz: Nackte Fakten, published by Herbert Verbeke, Vrij Historisch Onderzoek, Postbus 60, 2600 Berchem, Belgium].  

It dawned on the exterminationists that Pressac had done their cause a disservice. In Le Monde juif (January April 1996), the Jew Maurice Cling mercilessly criticized Pressac -- once celebrated as the "rebutter of the Revisionists" -- accusing him of "manipulations", "inventions", and "deviant statements". The revisionists couldn't have put it better themselves.
