Special Request: Holocaust

                I was asked to do a post on the Holocaust and because it ties in closely with a previous post I’m going to write about it now. Let me go ahead and say that I am a firm believer that the holocaust did indeed happen. But, I’m going to look at just the facts and try to explain them all as best I can.

                I’ve heard a lot of pieces of “evidence” against the Holocaust, so, to try and best cover as many as possible I’m going to use this person’s article: This person has some interesting things to say against the Holocaust, so his points will be the same ones I analyze.
            Fred A. Leuchter is America's leading specialist on the design and fabrication of execution equipment, including homicidal gas chambers. In 1988, Leuchter scraped samples from the alleged gas chamber walls in Auschwitz, Birkenau and Lublin. Cyanide residue would be clearly evident on all these walls if gassings did occur. To his astonishment, Leuchter found no significant cyanide traces in any one of these rooms.” (Unless stated otherwise, all quotes are taken from aforementioned site) This is a very compelling piece of evidence to readers. We are told that a leading expert found no evidence of cyanide...some 40-50 years after the chambers were used. I’m sorry to call a “leading expert” this, but this guy has to be an idiot. First off, Hydrocyanic Acid (AKA Zyklon B) was not used in every single gas chamber, in some cases it was Carbon Monoxide. But even assuming that Hydrocyanic Acid was used in all of these chambers he analyzed, remember he is scraping the walls in an attempt to find not only a forty-year old residue, but a forty-year old SOLUBLE residue. That’s right, Hydrocyanic Acid will dissolve fully in water. This makes it extremely easy for a last minute Nazi to wash away the evidence, or for a rainstorm leaking through the dilapidated structure to wash it all away. Another thing to take into account is that all chemicals deteriorate over time, and cyanide deteriorates quickly (Only taking 20-60 minutes to be reduced to half the initial concentration in a human body). So when you are looking at something that has been sitting idle for more than forty years, you are going to be lucky if you even manage to find an atom.
            The structural integrity of these "gas chambers" is also extremely faulty. These rooms have ordinary doors and windows which are not hermetically sealed! There are large gaps between the floors and doors. If the Germans had attempted to gas anyone in these rooms, they would have died themselves, as the gas would have leaked and contaminated the entire area. Also, no equipment exists to exhaust the air-gas mixture from these buildings. Nothing was made to introduce or distribute the gas throughout the chambers. There are no provisions to prevent condensation of gas on the walls, floors or ceilings. No exhaust stacks have ever existed.” Here is a picture of the gas chamber at Auschwitz:
 If you wish to consider this a room with “ordinary doors and windows” I’m afraid your sense of ordinary is a little bit screwed up. And by the time this area was finally captured most Germans had done whatever they could to hide the evidence. There are holes all over the gas chamber! Here are some photos from a reconstruction made to look exactly like this original: There is ventilation. As to whether it led to an “exhaust stack” that is not for me to say, but I don’t think it was just some Nazi décor.
            Though six million Jews supposedly died in the gas chambers, not one body has ever been autopsied and found to have died of gas poisoning. We have been shown piles of bodies from World War II, but most of these persons died of typhus or starvation or Allied bombings and a great many of those were murdered Germans, not Jews. Roughly the equivalent of ten football fields should be packed full of gassed bodies to present as evidence, yet not one body has ever been discovered.” As I have already said, Cyanide has a short half-life (the amount of time it takes for the concentration to reach half of what it originally was). Even today people sometimes only find low concentrations of it in the blood on the bodies of people who died of Cyanide poisoning. So that part goes out the window right here and now. I will give them this, most of the bodies in pictures are indeed of other murdered people, not Jews. Gee, I wonder why nobody took any pictures of the people dying in the concentration camps. Maybe because it would be suicidal. Can anyone really expect a camera-bearing citizen to waltz up to the pile of dead bodies and politely ask the Nazi on guard duty if he would be so kind as to allow a photograph of the rotting corpses?
            The Germans documented everything in meticulous detail from shrubbery to arbors, but no pre-war or wartime plans or documents exist that detail or even mention any gas chambers for reasons of genocide. All documents ever presented were drawn up AFTER the war.” I don’t remember ever hearing that the Germans documented anything at all…
            “Even if we threw away all the evidence and accounted for every so-called gas chamber, it would have taken 68 YEARS to accomplish gassing six million Jews! “ Some reports say that as many as 700-800 people were shoved into gas chambers at a time. Therefore this statement can only be classified as an ALGEBRA FAIL. Even if only 700 people were gassed a day, it would only take 4 years for more than a million people to be gassed. If you had, say six chambers, you could reach the full six million in four years with just 700 a day. Not to mention "six million" is a total death count, and not all of them were gassed to death.
            Even The Diary of Anne Frank is a hoax. Portions of the diary were written with a ball point pen. These pens were not in use at the time Anne Frank lived.” The first ball-point pen was made in 1888 and similar pens have been used ever since.
It is not denied concentration camps existed. Tragically, many died of typhus or starvation, as often happens in such situations. There is, however, no evidence that any gassings occurred for the reasons of genocide.” Other than hundreds of testimonies, no there isn’t. Either way, people were gassed, even if it was just prisoners of war.
“It is an interesting fact that the number of so-called persecuted Jews KEEPS INCREASING. Hal Greenwald, program director for the Hillel Foundation at Duke University, a Jewish student group, has been promoting the idea that NINE MILLION JEWS WERE EXTERMINATED IN HITLER'S GAS CHAMBERS (New York Times, Nov. 9, 1991, AP). NOW IT'S 9 MILLION AND GROWING. ..JUST LIKE OUR DEBT/TAX MONEY SUPPLY...THE NUMBERS JUST KEEP COMING OUT OF THIN AIR...” I give this one to the author entirely. The numbers do keep growing, and most of that is bogus. People do make money off this stuff, I’m not going to deny it, but to ignore all of these accounts from both survivors and the Nazi’s themselves is like saying 9/11 didn’t happen at all and that all the videos were faked and there never was a World Trade Center.

P.S. Some people present “images” of Jewish weddings, or football games, etc taking place in concentration camps. This supposedly shows that concentration camps were not actually killing camps. These are never actual photographs, they are movie stills. These are from somebody else’s imagination, never take them seriously.

  1. I realized I forgot to explain how the non-airtight chambers would not also kill the Nazi's standing outside and howit would manage to kill the Jews. The best way to explain it is by using your imagination.
    Imagine a house that has been contaminated with Carbon Monoxide. nobody is allowed to enter the house for a while, but do they evacuate the whole neighborhood? No. Why? Because once Carbon Monoxide, or any toxic gas for that matter, gets out into the air it becomes diluted. The ratio of toxin to oxygen is so low that nobody would even know it existed. It's like if Bill Gates dropped a penny on the sidewalk; his net-worth would go down, but it would be by so little nobody would ever notice. So, unless you are directly in its path, you won't be affected by it. Unfortuanetly for the Jews, they were stuck in a room and crammed tightly together, standing directly in the gas' path. They had no escape.
    Alternately the Nazi's could have reduced the amount of gas coming out by simple running a strip of rubber under the door, of even by simply sliding in a well-fitted piece of wood. Something like that would reduce the rate in which the gas flows under the door and make it even safer for the people outside.
    So basically, all the Nazi's probably had to do was leave the building or open a window to avoid toxicating themselves because toxic gases will not leak out of the cracks too terribly fast. And again, Nazi's could have easily plugged these cracks with a number of items we can't even expect to find, or maybe even associate with the gas chambers.

  2. Captured German war records prove that millions of innocent Jews (and tens of thousands of others) were systematically exterminated by Nazi Germany - mostly in gas chambers. These facts have been proven repeatedly through countless thesis and dissertation research papers. Virtually every PhD in the world will stake their career on these known Holocaust FACTS. Despite this knowledge, Holocaust deniers ply their mendacious poison everywhere, especially with young people on the Internet. The deniers have only one agenda - to distort the truth in a way that promotes antagonism against the object of their hatred (Jews), or to deny the culpability of their ancestors and heroes.

    Museums and mandatory public education are appropriate tools to dispel bigotry, especially racial and ethnic hatred. Books and films can also establish the veracity of genocides, such as recent Holocaust films. They help to tell the true story of the perpetrators of genocide; and they reveal the abject terror, humiliation and degradation resulting from such blind loathing and prejudice. We must disclose the cruelty and horror of genocide to combat the deniers’ virulent and inaccurate historical revision. By doing this, we protect vulnerable future generations from making the same mistakes.

    Whenever we stand up to those who deny or minimize genocide we send a critical message to the world. As we continue to live in an age of genocide and ethnic cleansing, we must repel the broken ethics of our ancestors, or risk a dreadful repeat of past transgressions. A world that continues to allow genocide requires ethical remediation. We must show the world that religious, racial, ethnic and gender persecution is wrong; and that tolerance is our progeny's only hope. Only through such efforts can we reveal the true horror of genocide and promote the triumphant spirit of humankind.

  3. I agree! The Holocaust was just the biggest of many, many persecutions still continuing today. And people want to pretend that the holocaust never even happened. And if we submit to this we are opening our arms wide for any other hate crimes and genocides. Thank you for reading my blog. I'll be sure to check out your book!
