Charleston's Beth Elohim Synagogue which stood from 1793 — 1838 (burnt down)
"Painter and printmaker John Rubens Smith (1770 — 1834) drew this pencil sketch of the first
Beth Elohim synagogue building in Charleston, South Carolina, which was consecrated in 1794."
"Masonry and the synagogue were connected in 1793 at the laying of the corner-stone of the new synagogue of the Beth Elohim Congregation on September 14 of that year. The committee of arrangements consisted of Daniel Hart, Gershom Cohen, and Moses C. Levy. The ceremony, according to the glowing report of this committee to the vestry, "was conducted by the rules and regulations of the ancient and honorable fraternity of Freemasons." ... The eight marble stones were laid by the following members of the congregation: Israel Joseph, Philip Hart, Lyon Moses, Isaac Moses, Emanuel Abrahams, Mark Tongues, Hart Moses, and Abraham Moses, all of whom, judging from the account, and in the absence of Masonic records of the time, may have been Masons."

Moses Michael Hays (photo source), the man chosen
to introduce Scottish Rite Masonry to the United States.
"Why such extraordinary powers were granted to Hays, a Jew, is a question remaining to be answered"
"The leading figure among the Jews in connection with early Masonry in the United States was Moses Michael Hays (1739 - 1805) ... Hays was prominently identified with the introduction into the United States of what is called in Masonry the "Ancient Accepted Scottish Rite," ... In recognition of the powers conferred upon him he was elected Grand Master of that Grand Lodge (Massachusetts) at the annual elections from 1788 to 1792, ... Before becoming Grand Master, Hays had been Junior Grand Warden of the Grand Lodge in 1785. Previous to that time he had been Master of King David's Lodge in Newport from 1780 to 1782. Prior to 1780 he had been Master of that lodge in New York where it had been originally organized under a warrant issued to him by George Harrison, Provincial Grand Master of New York, February 33, 1769. His connection with Masonry probably commenced about 1768 when he was appointed Deputy Inspector General of Masonry for North America by Henry Andrew Francken, who had been commissioned by Stephen Morin, of Paris, acting under the authority of Frederick II of Prussia, the Grand Master of Masons of Europe and holding jurisdiction over America. The appointment was made with the view of establishing the Scottish Rite in America, and power was given to Hays to appoint others with like powers. Under this authority he appointed several Deputy Inspectors General of Masonry for various States, of whom mention will be made in treating of those States.' Why such extraordinary powers were granted to Hays, a Jew, is a question remaining to be answered. ... Hays' son and all his grandsons and great-grandsons were Masons. Hays left one son and five daughters."

Alexander L. Easterman (1891 - 1983), Scottish-born Jew, a lawyer and
journalist who became Political Secretary of the World Jewish Congress
in the late-'30s and head of its International Affairs Department in 1941.
We're told by historians—whose pronouncements are only doubted by hate criminals—that the world learnt that six million was the number of Jews holocausted on December 14, 1945; the day William Walsh, a U.S. prosecutor at the main Nuremberg trial, submitted an affidavit of SS-Sturmbannfuehrer (turned O.S.S. agent) Wilhelm Hoettl, in which he claimed Adolf Eichmann had told him 6,000,000 Jews had been killed.
Evidence suggests that this wasn't the case at all; numerous Zionists were claiming six million was the number of Jews killed up to 22 months prior to Hoettl's confession being presented to the Nuremberg courtroom.
Below is another example of a Zionist claiming 6,000,000 were dead, on this occasion 4 months prior to when he was supposed to have learnt that was the figure. Following is a transcription of a letter from Alexander Easterman sent to the military judge who headed the British war crimes unit in post-war Europe, which can found in a file now held at the British national archives:

Deputy Judge Advocate General,
Spring Gardens, W.1.
Dear Brig.General Shapcott,
I write to thank you for your courtsey in discussing with me last Thursday certain aspects of the forthcoming War Crimes Trials at Belsen-Bergen [sic], in which the World Jewish Congress is closely concerned.
As I inform you, the World Jewish Congress has been in relations with the United nations war Crimes Commission and with various Governments on the question of the Jewish aspect of war crimes. In formal memoranda and in many discussions with these authorities, the Congress has expressed their views upon the specific character of the crimes committed against the Jews in Europe by the Nazi Government of Germany and their satellites, crimes which have culminated in the extermination, as a result of a calculated and planned conspiracy against the Jewish people, of some six million Jewish men, women and children.

During a debate that took place at Harvard University in 1985, Romanian-born Jewish scholar Andrei Markovits told of how in 1964 he'd witnessed his cousin use his "Auschwitz bonus" to bully a West German police officer into ripping up a ticket that had been put on his illegally parked luxury car by accusing the policeman of being a Nazi and having washed with soap made from members of his family:
When my father and I first visited our relatives in Frankfurt in 1964, we found a parking ticket on our hosts' car as we exited from a movie theater. Irate about this, my father's cousin drove to the police station and demanded to speak to the officer who had penalized him for parking in a clearly prohibited area. Without attempting to justify his actions - indeed boasting of his contempt for what he called "this Nazi law" - he asked the officer in a hostile tone whether he (the officer) had taken showers during the war. When the startled policeman, who was probably in his mid-fifites, answered affirmatively, my father's cousin shot back: "Well I just wanted you to know that you washed with soap which you Nazis made out of my family." Shocked and speechless, the policeman tore up the parking ticket. My father's cousin, exiting triumphantly from this Frankfurt police station, had been the beneficiary of what has been called the "Auschwitz bonus," or as Günther Rühle, the Schauspielhaus' director was later to put it, the "Schonzeit" or "no hunting season."
I remember distinctly being very upset hearing for the first time that Jews were made into soap by the Nazis. Confronting my father on this matter, he confirmed what I had taken to be hyperbole of his cousin's rather flamboyant style. I detected that my father was also upset about the parking ticket incident, though for different reasons than I was. In part, he was jealous that his cousin could cash in so profitably on this "Auschwitz bonus," which was non-existent in Austria. My father was also worried that in the not too distant future this "Auschwitz bonus" would be depleted in the Federal Republic as well, especially once police officers such as the one who rightfully penalized his cousin began to be drawn from a generation which was born after 1945.

Former Labour Party politicians Tony Benn and Greville Janner, and Australian journalist Margaret Jones
In January 1982 Tony Benn said of journalists who criticised the train drivers who were members of the trade union ASLEF, and, in Benn's opinion, refused to write independently of their politically right-wing employers:
'Their role could be likened to the Jews in Dachau who herded other Jews into the gas chambers.'1
Benn later apologised for this comment,2 but not before his colleague Greville Janner criticised his analogy, claiming that it was inaccurate, because there were no gas chambers at Dachau. Greville was quoted in an article written by Margaret Jones:
Mr Benn should have known better. For one thing, as furious leaders of Britain's Jewish community pointed out, there were no gas chambers at Dachau.
The president of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, Mr Greville Janner, who is also MP for Leicester West, said he had received many protests.
"It was a phrase which caused considerable offence: first because it was incredibly inept, second because it was inaccurate," he said.3
This would not be Janner's last faux pas when disseminating Holocaust "facts". In 2006 he claimed that 3,000,000 people were killed at Auschwitz.4 But in fairness to the recently deceased child molester, in 1982 the Dachau museum insisted that their homicidal gas chamber was never used, although they didn't say that they never had one.5

"Collection of human hair from barber and beauty shops
was made compulsory in towns of 10,000 people or more."
Much is made of the fact that the Germans use to collect hair of prisoners held in their concentration camps, particularly the large amounts of hair found at Auschwitz by the Soviets, which is claimed to have been cut off the victims of the gas chambers once they were dead.
There are dozens of original German documents that show that hair was collected in concentration camps, and the British decrypted German radio messages which discussed the collection of hair in camps and what it was use for, therefore knowledgeable revisionists do not wholly dispute the collection and use of human hair by the Nazis, merely some of the wilder, unevidenced claims about what it was used for.
In March 1944, a report titled "The Textile Industry in France" was compiled by staff of Liberated Areas Branch of the Foreign Economic Administration, a U.S. agency set up in September 1943 (and dissolved in late 1945) to deal with issues relating to foreign economic affairs which had previous been managed by many different agencies within the US government.
Interestingly the report mentions that the Germans had issued orders in the autumn of 1942 that all human hair was to be collected from barber shops and beauty saloons in French towns with a population of over 10,000 people. This order had been part of the "Third Kehrl Plan", an economic programme covering the period October 1942 - October 1943, devised by Hans Kehrl, the head of the planning office in the Reich Ministry of Economics. He was subsequently tried at the Nuremberg Ministries trial where he received a 15 year sentence.
It's worth noting that the cited Foreign Economic Administration report only concerns itself with France, so it makes no mention of what measures being employed in Germany regarding the collection of human hair from citizens or camp inmates. Although, the report does mention that a total of four "Kehrl Plans" were effected during the war, so anyone looking to learn about other hair collecting schemes could do worse to track down his plans to see if they contain instructions regarding this.

Saturday, 23 May 2015
In the December 1917 edition of the American publication Everybody's Magazine appeared a lengthy article titled "Invaded America" by Samuel Hopkins Adams, about the threat posed to the United States—then an official participant in The Great War—by pro-German propaganda from its citizens of German ancestry who worked in the publishing industry.
Adams claimed that in the state of Missouri, wandering German propagandists were fearmongering the black community by telling them that if they enlisted to fight for the U.S., and were taken to Europe and killed, their corpses would be made into soap by the Germans who would then send it to the U.S. where it possibly could be used by their own mothers to do their laundry.
Following is the section in full:
Scaring the Negro
MEANTIME, in the South, a word-of-mouth propaganda was conducted among the blacks, with a view to prejudicing them against the war and in favor of Germany.
Commercial agents, supposed or real, selling sewing-machines, crayon enlargements, household utensils, and the like, went from cabin to cabin spreading the report that the equality denied to the negroes by the United States would be theirs when the Kaiser came into power; therefore any colored man taking arms against Germany would be fighting his race's best friend. To what extremes this campaign was carried may be judged from the incident which follows. A young, "foot-loose" negro came to the postmaster and storekeeper of a south-eastern Missouri town for information:
"Boss, I want to ask you you-all sumfin'. You-all got any Gehman soap in yo' sto'?"
"No, Jake; haven't got such a thing. What do you want with German soap?"
"I do' want any!" cried the negro. "Lawdee! I do' want any. I jes want to know."
"Well, now, you know," said the post-master, and as the young man still hesitated,
"What else is on your mind, Jake?"
"Boss, do them Gehmans make soap?"
"Certainly. They have to if they want it."
"An' they sen' it over heah foh weuns to use?"
"Why, I reckon they used to before the war."
"An' they goin' to sen' some mo' afteh the wah?"
"Likely they are."
"Nossuh!" vehemently declared the youth. "Nossuh! Dey do' git me to enlis'. I'se go'n' to light out, I is! And dey'll be plenty go with me."
After some persuasion the postmaster extorted and explanation of the caller's obvious horror. Some German agent, having devised or had furnished to him
a means of turning the famous "kadaver" rumor to local uses, had been sedulously working upon the fears of the negroes.
It will be remembered that the Germans were accused—and subsequently denied the charge with heat and probably with truth—of using dead bodies of friend and foe in their reduction plants and deriving animal fats therefrom.
Having passed through the manipulative processes of German-American propaganda, this legend, duly fortified by newspaper clippings (which always bear conviction to the mind of the ignorant black whether he can read them or not) had been borne through Missouri by a wandering propagandist in the fore of a horror-tale, with a conclusion somewhat to this effect:
"And when your old mother goes out to her washing after the war is over, she will pick up a bar of soap—and that will be you, her boy, that was killed!"
Imagine the effect upon a ghost-ridden race!
This section of Adam's article was later reprinted in the January 1918 edition of the Canadian publication MacLeans Magazine:

The Daily Mirror published the story the following day.
Sunday, 8 March 2015
(Front row, left to right:) Ernst Kaltenbrunner, Franz Zieries, Heinrich Himmler, August Eigruber, and Georg
Bachmayer pictured walking down the path from the Mauthausen prisoner camp to the stone quarry during 1941.
In 2008, the U.S. National Archives published The Mauthausen Concentration Camp Complex: World War II and Postwar Records, researched and written by archivist Amy Schmidt and intern Gudrun Loehrer; it's essentially a guide to all the records on Mauthausen held at the U.S. National Archives at College Park, Maryland.
Browsing through the guide, I was startled to learn the following (p. 51):
Items cited as enclosures but missing from the Taylor Report
A 1943 “protocol” signed by Mauthausen Commandant Ziereis and Georg Bachmayer converting a police wagon into a mobile gas chamber.
The American Lt. Jack Taylor was an officer in the Office of Strategic Services who was held prisoner at Mauthausen for little more than a month before it was liberated by his countrymen in May 1945. Taylor had been captured by the Germans working with partisans after he'd been parachuted-in behind enemy lines, and was therefore treated as a political prisoner opposed to a typical prison of war. Following liberation Taylor turned his skills to compiling evidence of German atrocities at the Mauthausen-Gusen concentration camps and sub-camps; more about Taylor's report can be read on the NARA guide linked above by searching for his name.
A protocol signed by a camp commandant and one of his senior men about converting an old police van into a homicidal gas chamber on wheels would certainly be of use to orthodox historians, so it is indeed unfortunate for them that it went missing. Assuming of course that the document was not an embarrassingly crude forgery, which it almost certainly was; it can easily be shown that there were some truly absurd claims being made by War Crimes investigators at Mauthausen about gas vans.
The following is an excerpt from Nuremberg documents PS-499, a report on the killing of inmates at Mauthausen concentration camp which declared that a gas van operated at Mauthausen in which Zyklon B was the deadly agent used to kill its passengers. No promoter of the claim that the Nazis operated homicidal gas vans today insists that anything other than the exhaust fumes of the vans' engines were used to kill the victims. This excerpt of PS-499 was also quoted (NMT:5, p.1137f) by American judge Michael A. Musmanno in his Concurring Opinion on the judgment of the 4th Nuremberg Military Tribunal, the "Pohl Trial":

The original doors of the homicidal gas chamber in Auschwitz I
(according to the Polish embassy in London and the Jewish Chronicle)
In December 1991, the Daily Post newspaper of Liverpool, England, published the following letter by David Irving:
EILEEN TAYLOR (Daily Post, November 30) implied that I am among those historians according to whom "concentration camps, like Auschwitz' didn't actually exist".
Credit me with some intelligence please: any of your readers can see from my biography Hitler's War, that I print one two-page photograph of Auschwitz and another of Jews being deported from Stuttgart to the East.
My position is simply defined: as the Poles themselves now admit, the "gas chambers" on display at Auschwitz were built after the war for tourists to look at.
David Irving, London.
Daily Post (Liverpool, England; 3 a.m. edition), Monday, December 16, 1991, p.14.
The following month the paper published a response to Irving's letter written by the press attaché of the Polish Embassy in London:
I WAS sure that the statement of Mr David Irving (Letters, December 16) that "as Poles themselves now admit, the gas chambers on display at Auschwitz were built after the war for tourists to look at" was absolute nonsense.
Nevertheless, I took the trouble to verify from which source he might have obtained his information.
I must say that neither the government officials nor members of political parties and social organisations, journalists, academics, virtually everybody I approached on the subject had ever heard anyone publicly expressing such an absurd opinion.
Embassy of the Republic of Poland, London.
Daily Post (Liverpool, England; 3 a.m. edition), Wednesday, January 22, 1992, p.14.
Two days after the Polish government official's letter was published, the London weekly newspaper the Jewish Chronicle published the following article, after clearly having spoken to both Irving and the Polish embassy (strong words the JC attributes to the Polish embassy official were not actually published by the Daily Post):
David Irving in row with Poles over Holocaust
By BERNARD JOSEPHS
Revisionist historian David Irving was under fire this week from Polish diplomats over his claim that the gas chambers at the site of a Nazi death camp were fakes, built as attractions for tourists.
Mr Irving's allegations were contained in a letter published in the Liverpool Daily Post, in which he wrote: "As the Poles themselves now admit, the 'gas chambers' on display at Auschwitz were built after the war for tourists to look at."
In a reply to the paper, a Polish Embassy official described Mr Irving's statement as "absolute nonsense." The official said he had checked with government, political and academic sources in Poland, and "virtually" all of them said they had never heard "such an absurd opinion."
He added: "I think that only a mentally unstable person could have said the words which Mr Irving attributes to 'Poles.'"
Mr Irving. who wrote the foreword to the Leuchter Report, a pamphlet by an American engineer claiming that there was no evidence of mass gassing of Jews in Auschwitz, declined to name his source. But he added: "All I can say is that the person who made the statement was the person best suited to know."
Jewish Chronicle (London), Friday, January 24, 1992, p.5.
Jean-Claude Pressac had admitted in his 1989 book that the gas chamber was reconstructed after the war (pages 123 and 150). His book was heralded by the world's press as being the complete refutation of Holocaust revisionism, but clearly no one from the JC, the Polish embassy in London, nor the plethora of Polish movers and shakers the press attaché claimed to have asked about the issue had bothered reading it.
Eight months after the JC article, a young Jewish-American revisionist named David Cole famously got the curator of the Auschwitz-Birkenau museum to admit on camera that the Auschwitz I gas chamber was reconstructed by the communists after the war.

Below is a photograph that appeared in a collection that was sent to the U.S. government by Soviet affiliated Poles [opposed to their adversaries, the then-exiled Polish government] at some point prior to December 30, 1942, and is now available to be downloaded from the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum in New York.
The photo purportedly shows the bodies of Jews who electrocuted in a Nazi death camp [undoubtedly Belzec] which have been loaded onto a truck or cart ready to be taken to a factory to be made into soap or oil.
"This photograph shows bodies of electrocuted victims piled on a truck, which
is going to a factory where the bodies will be used for making oil and soap."
The very same photograph is available on the website of the Ghetto Fighters' House museum in Israel, but this time it's claimed the photo shows a Soviet soldier standing next to a wagon full of corpses found inside a liberated Nazi camp:
"A soldier of the Soviet Red Army in a Nazi camp following its liberation,
standing beside a wagon loaded with corpses ." - Getto Fighters' House
Both captions are obviously fraudulent. The photo was passed to the Americans before the end of 1942, and therefore could not show the scene inside any German camp liberated by the Soviets, as they didn't begin to liberate camps until after the war turned in their favour following the Battle of Stalingrad. The story of the electrocution death chamber at Belzec was abandoned almost immediately after the war, as were claims that soap was manufactured from the bodies of the camp's victims; even if we consider for a moment that argument about the cause of death is irrelevant, no one would seriously suggest that an active-duty Soviet soldier could have been photographed with a cart load of corpses in any of the Action Reinhardt camps during late 1942.
The photo possibly shows the corpses of Soviet prisoners of war, which would mean the Soviet-Poles who forwarded the photograph to the U.S. in 1942 deliberately mislabelled a recent photograph of genuine suffering in a German-run PoW camp. Or, perhaps, their deceit was even greater, and the photo shows Holodomor victims in the early 1930s; the soldier is certainly wearing a coat and hat similar to those worn by Red Army troops at that time.
Over at Holocaust Controversies, Roberto Muehlenkamp published this photograph with the GFH's caption as proof of German atrocities during WW2 (see photo 2.107):

On November 11, 1933, the Polish newspaper the Illustrated Daily Courier published a horrendous piece of atrocity-propaganda in which it claimed the Polish police had uncovered a Nazi-affiliated group operating in Poland, France, and Czechoslovakia, which sought to entice army officers and soldiers into becoming spies for the Nazi movement with money, gambling, orgies, and specially trained attractive female agents who would seduce the men.
Should the men refuse the offer of becoming a Nazi agent, or if they were ineffective agents, the paper insisted, they were murdered and their bodies were dissolved in acid. So far 505 men had been murdered by the group known as the German Patriotic League.
Following is a British newspaper article which reported on the story in the Polish paper, and then a translation of the full article from the Polish newspaper:
These wholesale murders are alleged to
have been the work of the Deutsche
Patriotische Liga, known for short as
"Depali," and the discovery of their
activities is attributed to the Polish

The list includes:

slovakians have also been done to death.
Many of the victims are said to have been
army officers and soldiers.

paper, beautiful women were employed by

“Depali” – A Bloody Clandestine Murderers’ Organization
(by telephone from our correspondent)
Warsaw, November 9 (Pm.). The Warsaw investigation authorities are dealing at the moment with a matter that undoubtedly will have strong reverberations in the international arena.
It is about a long series of clandestine murders perpetrated in Germany during the last ten years. In many cases scores of Polish citizens were victims of these murders, and therefore the matter is investigated in Warsaw at the moment.
Recent investigations by the authorities in Warsaw are throwing a glaring light on dozens of secret murders, perpetrated by the Germans, which until today have been covered by an impenetrable fog.
The shocking story reveals certain conspiratorial methods, used by Nazi organizations already before their takeover in Germany.
What is “Depali”? Horrible confession of a convict in a prison cell.
For many years, a certain Wilhelm Wagner, a Polish citizen of German nationality, had a shop in Bydgoszcz [Bromberg]. In 1928 Wagner went bankrupt. He then moved illegally to Germany, where he posed as “a victim of the Poles.”
In Germany Wagner joined a burglar’s gang, for which he was sentenced to four years of imprisonment. To serve his sentence, he was sent to Waldheim, where he was put into a prison cell together with Ernst Hening, a German citizen, sentenced by a court in Dortmund to death for committing two murders, but the sentence was commuted to lifelong imprisonment.
When time for Wagner’s release from prison was approaching, Hening who knew that Wagner, as a Polish citizen, would leave Germany, told him a shocking story concerning Poland, France, and Czechoslovakia, wanting that Wagner should report about this matter to the authorities in these countries. Before we will give details of this confession, we are stressing that Hening’s confession was supported by certain clues, which have found complete corroboration by the investigation made by the Warsaw authorities.
The following was told by Hening:
Espionage head offices.
Since the first years of Nazism, in its bosom an institution has grown with the name “Deutsche Patrioten-Liga,” short “Depali.” This institution’s task was to inflict damage on Poland, France, and Czechoslovakia by all means.
Special agents of “Deptali” established head offices in various towns of these three countries, the task of which was to recruit professional soldiers and draftees to spying for Germany.
These espionage head offices were very precisely organized. There were special departments and divisions, at the services of which stood individuals from various fields.
Particularly strongly developed was the propaganda net, which had the task to make the soldiers desert. Easygoing people were chosen, and the soldiers were seduced by various methods, e.g. by hypocritical revolutionary propaganda, money, gambling, orgies, or by female secret agents specially put onto them. Young and pretty women made selected soldiers fall in love with them and persuaded them with promises to desertion and helped them to cross the border to German territory, where they were enlisted to the German espionage service. Quite often the families of the deserters suddenly lost all information about the disappeared and never found out what happened to them and what was their fate.
With bestial cruelty hundreds of useless secret agents were murdered.
Only now it has come out that their fate was cruel. It happened that the recruited deserters did not want to do spy work, or that they were not suited for it. In this case they disappeared for ever. Such was also the fate of those deserters who, after some time, turned out to be useless.
Before their liquidation the candidates were exposed to sadistic orgies against the background of a certain sexual deviation that was strongly developed in Germany. After these orgies the poor man disappeared for ever. Orgies and entertainment took place in fashionable nightclubs and casinos, where rooms were specially reserved for the members of this organization. An owner of such a facility was the prisoner Hening with his life sentence. The perverts used to come to his establishment.
Government subsidies and prominent personalities.
Many prominent personalities, who up to the present have held high positions in office, belonged to the “Depali” organization.
As Hening wanted to blackmail the vehme organization in order to get more money, he stole the organization’s files which contained many secrets of their members in high positions and the list of the victims murdered by “Dopali.”
The list contains the names of 250 French deserters, murdered at Wiesbaden, 198 names of Polish deserters, killed at Breslau, 11 Czech names, and 46 names of Germans murdered as enemies of the Hitler movement.
The corpses of the murdered were thrown into caustic acids, under whose influence they were completely destroyed, and then thrown into the sewers. This way no traces of the crimes were left.
Besides that the list which Hening acquired contained many names of high-ranking personalities from society and state administration.
Hening did not succeed in blackmailing. With the help of influential personalities he was committed to prison, accused of the murder of two individuals, who, indeed, had been murdered in his establishment by the criminal organization “Depali.” Hening was sentenced to death. He succeeded, however, in hiding the stolen documents in a safe place. He, therefore, was left alive to find out from him the hiding-place of the documents. In the meantime Hening tried to get a revision of his trial. There was a time when the rulers were prone to this revision and were preparing for it.
But at this moment the Hitler coup d’état took place, which foiled all preparations. Hening initiated Wagner into the secret. He should try from abroad to get Hening out of prison. Then Hening would hand over the documents to the respective governments.
The investigations of the Polish authorities corroborate the revelations.
The question arose whether Hening’s revelations were based on facts.
Hening gave Wagner the names of several dozens of deserters from Poland, who had been killed by “Depali.” After his return to Poland, Wagner gave the Polish authorities the names of those deserters.
The investigation in this matter confirmed that in the period of time mentioned by Hening, individuals whose names were mentioned, indeed, deserted,. Some families of these deserters were already interrogated. They confirm that all traces of the escapees had been lost, and that the families regard them as having died.
These circumstances let the authorities treat the matter very seriously.
At present the investigation wants to establish how many deserters from Poland to Germany were recruited by the organization “Depali” and how many vanished from the surface of the planet.
At the same time the authorities have already exposed some threads of the central office of this criminal organization that acted, and probably is still acting, on Polish soil.
With regard to Hening who is sitting with a life sentence in prison for a crime he did not perpetrate, it would be better if the Human Rights League’s took up the issue, if not for Hening himself, then at least in order to acquire the documents which could reveal the secrets behind a shocking crime, committed without punishment against some hundred citizens of Poland, France, and Czechoslovakia.

The Oprah Winfrey Show: May 1, 1989
Vicki Polin: Jewish Satanic Ritual Child Sex Abuse Survivor
https://www.bitchute.com/video/7Mx2iiJEOcbf/ [original disappeared from YouTube]
Vicki Polin, is the founder of ‘The Awareness Centre,’ a group who supports victims of sexual & ritual abuse.
Broadcasted on the May 1, 1989, she appeared under the pseudonym of ‘Rachel,’ on an edition of the Oprah Winfrey Show, titled “Mexican Satanic Cult Murders” - On which she stated:
"There would be rituals in which babies would be sacraficed... There were people who would grab babies in our family."
"My family has an extensive family tree and they keep track of who has been involved and who hasn't been involved and it goes back like to the 17th century."
"When I was very young I was forced to participate in that I was forced to sacrifice an infant."
"There are other Jewish families across the country, it's not just my own family."
"Not all Jewish people sacrifice children."
Following the show's broadcast, the Anti-Defamation League, a Jewish organisation with a reputation for labelling any criticism of Jews or Israel, even if 100% accurate; as antisemitism & hate speech, were out to discredit Vicki Polin. She later said:
"After I was on the show the ADL came after my family. Oprah didn't even know my real name, so I was amazed that in less then 24 hours that they did. I was stopped on the streets by holocaust survivors on my way to school, telling me that "I was going to start another holocaust" by saying what I did."
On July 18, 1989, she wrote the following letter to the ADL:
"To whom it may concern:
In my eyes and the eyes of other Jewish Survivors of Ritual Abuse, you attempted to discredit us the same way the Revisonism Movement trys to discredit the fact that the Holocaust occured.I feel you owe each and every Jewish Survivor of Ritual Abuse an apology. I believe the Jewish Community needs to take it's head out of the sand and open it's eyes!!! Incest, Child Sexual, and Ritual Abuse happens in Jewish Families. Jews are not exempt from perpetrating these crimes.
Our society believes the myth that Jews can't be pedophiles, or abuse their own children. This is a "MYTH", they do abuse children. There are even those who practice cannibalism, and perform human sacrifices. Believe me I saw it with my own eyes. I've come to the point in my life were I feel I need to bare-witness. I have and will continue to until I'm sure what I had to endure as a child is believed by you and others like you. I will do what ever is possible so what happened to me doesn't happen to anyone else!"

Julius Streicher at Nuremberg.
As is very well known, whilst giving testimony during the Nuremberg trial Julius Streicher claimed that he [was] inhumanly treated by U.S. soldiers following his capture, and that these claims by Streicher was subsequently stricken from the record. Eighteen years ago Carlos W. Porter quoted verbatim from the original mimeographed transcript what Streicher had claimed in his work Not Guilty at Nuremberg. The same year David Irving vividly detailed in his book Nuremberg: The Last Battle (pdf) Streicher's treatment by the Americans following his capture—without making his source clear (pp.84-5 and note 164 on p.473). Irving claimed to provide proof of further mistreatment Streicher endured whilst at Nuremberg (p.272 and note 598 on p.517), which perhaps occurred the evening after Streicher's second day on the stand, as during his first day he'd stated that he was being properly treated at Nuremberg.
Throughout the eleven month long trial copies of the mimeographed transcript were sent to the Foreign Office in batches every few days, and these transcripts are now held in the U.K. National Archives. In this post I'll provide photographs and quote from the ones which relate to Streicher's subsequently stricken testimony, whilst providing hyperlinks to images I've made of the mimeographed transcript compared to the transcript published in the volumes known as the Blue Series.
The image below is from the Blue Series volume 12, pp.398-399 (Avalon project version), and features an extract from the transcript of the Morning Session of Tuesday, April 30, 1946, whilst Lawrence (the British main judge and court President), Jackson (chief U.S. prosecutor) and Marx (Streicher's defence counsel) were discussing expunging parts of Streicher's testimony from the record:
Below is the mimeographed transcript of the same discussion. This copy was received at Foreign Office in Whitehall on May 7, 1946. The phrasing is slightly different in places, but it features parts (indicated by my red annotations) that were omitted from the printed version above. They expunged all details of what the court was discussing expunging!
(enlarged version - the two versions side by side) FO 371/57470, U 4668: 'Minutes of the Nuremberg Trial'
In the extract below I've indicated in bold what was omitted from the printed volume of the transcript (C. W. Porter didn't quote this part):
JACKSON: May it please the Tribunal; I should like to make a motion to the case of Streicher. I desire to move that Streicher's testimony found at pages 8494, 8495, and 8496 of April 26th be expunged from the record, and on page 8549 of yesterday's testimony in which Streicher makes charges against the United States army of mistreatment. If this testimony is irrelevant, it has no place in this record. If it is relevant, then it calls for an answer at considerable time and at considerable difficulty in view of the redeployment of people in the service of the United States. In our view it is utterly irrelevant. It was not responsive to any question and, no matter how it should be resolved, it would not help to determine whether Streicher is or is not guilty of the offences charged here, but it is not a pretty charge to leave unanswered in a record for all time.
It may be that we are unduly sensitive, as it has been suggested, but the United States has tried to conduct this war within the rules and the forces of the United States have sane sensitivity about their record in that respect.
In order to obtain a clear-cut ruling and in order to know whether we should take any steps in reference to this, I move that this be expunged as immaterial and irrelevant testimony and, of course, if it is irrelevant, we are excused from any duty to deal with it; if not, we will know that we must.
THE PRESIDENT: I can tell you what it was. The motion was that passages on pages 8494, 8495, and 8496 and on page 8549, in which the defendant Streicher made certain charges against the United States Army, be expunged from the record.
(Enlarged version - the two versions side by side ) FO 371/57470, U 4793: 'Minutes of the Nuremberg Trial'
Julius Streicher testified over two days at Nuremberg, taking the stand in the the afternoon of Friday, April 26, 1946, and remaining there for all of the morning and into the afternoon session of Monday, April 29, 1946. The image above is three pages from the transcript of April 26, which was received in London on May 4, 1946. My annotations in red indicate the parts of Streicher's testimony which was stricken from the record, which is also quoted below (here Streicher was being questioned by his defence counsel Dr. Hanns Marx):
"If I might finish now with the description of my life, it will be with the description of an experience which will show you, gentleman of the Tribunal, that without the government's wanting it, things may happen which are not human, not according to the principles of humanity.
Gentlemen, I was arrested, and during my internment I experienced things such as we, the Gestapo, have been accused of. Four Four days I was without clothes in a cell. I was burned; I was thrown on the floor, and an iron chain was put upon me. I had to kiss the feet of Negroes who spit into my face, Two colored men and a white officer spit into my mouth, and when I didn't open it any more, they opened it with a wooden stick, and when I asked for water I was led to the latrine and I was ordered to drink from there.
In Wiesbaden, gentlemen, a doctor took pity, and I state here a Jewish director of the hospital acted correctly. I state here, in order not to be misunderstood, the Jewish officers who are guarding us here in the prison have acted correctly, and the doctors who also treat me have even been considerate. And you may see from this statement the contrast from that prison until this moment.
What I have told you now I have reported to an American officer and the officer has forwarded the report to Frankfort. What happened to it I have never found out. That was my life. Now, please ask your questions."

The above image is from the transcript of the Morning Session of Monday, April 29, 1946, whilst Streicher was being cross-examined by British junior prosecutor Lieutenant Colonel John Griffith-Jones. This transcript was also received in London on May 4, 1946. Once again the phrasing slightly differs from that in the published volumes of the transcript, and in the extract below I indicate in bold Streicher's testimony which was stricken from the record (Streicher appears to have been struggling to hear the German translator through his headphones):
"GRIFFITH-JONES: Do you mean mean by "enlightenment" the word "persecution"? Is that why the Jew was to have no joy from it, from your enlightenment?
STREICHER: So as to avoid a misunderstanding, I have to say that I was beaten in Freising so much and for days without clothes that I have lost forty per cent of my hearing capacity and people are laughing when I ask. I can't help it that I was treated like that. Therefore, I ask to hear the question again."

Jews; Heinrich Heine, James Mayer de Rothschild and Karl Marx (Mordechai).
Not only was Karl Marx closely related to the Rothschild clan, he was also, related to, and
a close friend of poet Heinrich Heine, who was a close friend of of James de Rothschild.
Heine often wrote about his friend James de Rothschild, describing him as "the King of the Jews",
but strangely Marx never wrote a solitary word about the world's greatest bourgeois capitalist.

Curator of the Auschwitz museum Tadeusz Szymaski's August 1964 sketch of the gas chamber
at Birkenau commonly known as Bunker 2, based on information from survivor Dov Paisikovic.
source: Carlo Mattogno, The Bunkers of Auschwitz: Black Propaganda versus History, p.210.
Below is an excerpt of a sworn statement prepared in Paris during 1954 on behalf of Polish-born Jew Malvina Knabel née Margulies and her French Jewish husband Serge Knabel; the statement was based on information they had provided in earlier declarations and was issued as part of the procedure of claiming compensation from the West German government.
The quoted excerpt relates the story of how Malvina escaped from Auschwitz when aged ten years old:
"An Arbeitskommando was formed; we had to gather up stones. Once when I couldn't work any longer because of exhaustion and weakness, the SS-people beat me in the most brutal fashion and then brought me, together with other children, out of my barrack into the gas chamber. This happened in Winter 1943. It was night, and we waited a long time, perhaps two hours, before we were bought into the gas chamber. It is difficult for me, and I am reluctant, to report details about the gas chamber. There were a lot of us ["we were numerous"], all undressed, children of both sexes. At the top of the room there was a window-hole that served for ventilation after the gassing of prisoners. Two men that I didn't know, and that spoke a language unknown to me, helped me climb out of the hole, and likewise a boy, who still lives [is still alive today] in Russia. The boy was then 14 years old. He told me the following: after I came out through the hole out of the gas chamber, I lost consciousness. He carried me and was able to get to the adjoining fields, since the burning and gas installations were located outside the barbed wire. As I regained consciousness, we were in a small grove; it was still dark."
Her positioning of the gas chamber as outside of the barbed wire would suggest to some that it was Bunker 2, although that particular gas chamber is usually claimed to have been completely unused between the spring of 1943 and summer of 1944.
Following their escape, Malvina and the boy hid in the woods for several days, and begged for food and clothing. Eventually they made it the 250 miles to Berezhany (now in the Ukraine), where Malvina worked on a farm under an assumed named until the arrival of the Soviets in the spring of 1944; in 1946 she left for Israel on a children's transport. The statement does not detail how she came to be in France, nor how she had been reunited a 14-year-old French Jewish boy she'd originally met in Auschwitz during 1943, Serge Knabel, who became her husband.

Once upon a time the story was, that Death Camp: Sobibor had a sort
of trap door as the floor of it's gas chamber. And several witnesses
state that there was a "little train" into which the corpses fell.
Revisionists Jürgen Graf, Thomas Kues, and Carlo Mattogno published several
of the early accounts of the gas chamber trap door, and the little train in
their 2010 book: Sobibór: Holocaust Propaganda and Reality
"Upon his signal, the gas was shut off, the floor was mechanically drawn
apart, and the corpses fell below. There were carts in the cellar, and a
group of doomed men piled the corpses of the executed onto them."
Ber Moiseyevich Freiberg, (former Sobibór detainee) 10 August 1944
"the floor opened up automatically. The corpses fell into the car of a railway
which traversed the gas chamber and transported the corpses to the oven."
Zelda Met (former Sobibór detainee) 1944 or 1945
"once the people were dead, the floor opened up and they fell through"
Ursula Ster (former Sobibór detainee) 1945
"The floors open up and the dead bodies tumble down into small wagons
that are standing ready below, in the ‘bath’s’ cellars. The full wagons
roll out quickly. Everything is organized in accordance with the last
word in German technology."
Alexander Pechersk, (former Sobibór detainee) 1946
"that trap doors were located in the gas chambers through which the corpses would fall."
Chaim Engel (former Sobibór detainee) 1946
"At his order the machinery which opened the floor of the ‘bathhouse’ was activated,
and the corpses fell into small carts, which took them at first to mass graves."
Moshe Bahir (former Sobibór detainee) c.1950
"After some time, a buzzing sound would be heard, the floor opened up,
and the victims fell into the deep hollow below and were conveyed in
this little train into the pit where the eighty men of Camp 3 were
working, and they burned the bodies."

The Imitation Game's deceitfulness
The Imitation Game passes off footage of starving Germans in Allied Occupied Germany as starving Brits during the war.
Monday, 12 January 2015
On June 18, 1945, George Clutton of the British Embassy, Stockholm, wrote a report on the German concentration camp Ravensbrueck, in which he describes how the Nazis operated a sort of gas train:
"There seem to have been two gas chambers at Ravensbruck. [One] was situated next to the crematorium outside the boundary of the camp and was a small brick building with the appearance of a washroom with showers. It took one hundred victims at a time. The existence of the second gas chamber was widely believed, but no one had ever seen it. It was said to have been brought to have been brought to Ravensbruck at the end of 1944 by S.S. Obsersturm [sic] führer Brauning from Auschwitz where he had been in charge of gassing methods. It consisted of what appeared to be two covered railway wagons attached together and connected with two railway tankers containing the gas. The women put into the trucks were unaware of the fate in store for them and were generally under the impression that they were to be removed to another camp. The doors of the waggons were shut and the gas pumped in at either end from the tankers. Death was stated to have taken two hours."
Clutton explained in his report as to where his information originated:
"I have the honour to report that, in the company of your [Victor Mallet, the British Envoy to Sweden] Assistant Military Attaché, Lieutenant Colonel E. B. Butler, I proceeded by air on the evening of June 5th to Gothenburg to visit the British subjects who had arrived in Sweden from concentration camps in Germany. I spent Wednesday, the 6th, and Thursday, the 7th, seeing them at a Hostel in Hindås where most of them were congregate and also in Gothenburg. On the 7th some of them left by air for the United Kingdom and I had the privilege of saying farewell to them at the airport. The purpose of the visit was in the first place to greet them on behalf of yourself and His Majesty's Legation and secondly to gather evidence regarding cases of deaths of British subjects in the camps from which they came. In accordance with Foreign Office telegram No.725 of 10th May, I also endeavoured to collect as much evidence as possible relating to the general administration of concentration camps and the policy of extermination pursued against the inmates. Colonel Butler in addition was particularly interested in tracing certain female personnel of his organisation whom his Headquarters believed might at one time have been in Ravensbruck. I returned to Stockholm on the morning of Friday, the 9th.
2. The background to the story of these refugees was already known to me from information I had obtained from refugees of various nationalities in Stockholm as well as from retorts from His Majesty's Consul General at Gothenburg, the British Consul at Malmö, the Swedish authorities and the World Jewish Congress. The task before me was therefore to piece together and construct into a coherent whole the disjointed evidence that [was] already obtained with any fresh information available. The fact of [sic] all the British refugees had been assembled together in one place afforded an admirable opportunity of doing this. One of the difficulties in interrogating refugees from concentration camps is that as a result of their sufferings their memories have be affected and dates and names often fail them. To overcome this difficulty Colonel Butler and I adopted the method of interviewing witnesses we knew had the most evidence to give and supplementing this by discussion afterwards with the whole assembly of refugees. We found that three or four refugees together could often supply a name which one alone could not do. The mention of a name or an incident in front of the assembly would frequently produce a string of further names and incidents that had slipped the memory of the individual witness."
Report is found in UK NA: FO 371/50982, U5141, but I first learned of it from Carlo Mattogno, Inside the Gas
Chambers: The Extermination of Mainstream Holocaust Historiography, Barnes Review, 2014, p. 198.

Dov Freiberg (1927 - 2008; aka Ber or Berale Freiberg), survivor of seventeen months in Sobibor.
In 2008 revisionist Thomas Kues published a detailed comparison of various accounts given by Freiberg over the years, but the earliest one then known to Kues was Freiberg's testimony at the trial of Adolf Eichmann in June 1961; Kues' colleague Carlo Mattogno mentions a 1945 account given by Frieberg in their 2013 book (p. 1179). [dead link]
The original 1946 edition of the The Black Book covers Sobibor with Ehrenburg's article "The Button Factory"—which had been published in the New York newspaper PM on September 11, 1944. In 1980 edition of the The Black Book, Ehrenburg's article is replaced by one titled "The Uprising at Sobibor", and the same article appears again in 2003 version The Complete Black Book of Russian Jewry.
Seemingly unknown in literature on Sobibor, is the article which is produced in facsimile below. It appeared in the Information Bulletin, on September 15, 1944, which was a publication of the Soviet embassy in Washington D.C., similar to Soviet War News, the daily publication of the London embassy.
Freiberg is quoted at length in the Bulletin article, and some of the quotes appear again in The Black Book (1980 and 2003), which also states that the quotes were taken from a written account Freiberg made of his experiences, dated August 10, 1944; Ehrenburg didn't mention Freiberg in his article that appeared in the original 1946 version.
Freiberg's detailing of the collapsible gas chamber floor—which was mandatory [dead link] in post-war accounts of Sobibor—features in both the Bulletin article and The Black Book (1980 and 2003), but absent from the latter is the estimated death toll of 2,000,000 and the following quote from Freiberg about the collection of human fat for shipment to Germany where it was made into soap:
"At the end of 1942 the cremation of corpses began in the third camp. rails were laid and fires were constantly kept burning under them. ... Thousands were burned everyday; the fires were kept burning day and night, the flames rising very high. ... Special containers were fitted to the rails for collecting human fat. The furnaces were manned by a special crew of 150 prisoners. The ashes were collected in sacks and sent to Germany for use as fertilizer. The fat was packed in barrels, also for shipment to Germany. The Germans said that it made good soap."

Guards S. Krasilshchik, Information Bulletin, published by the Embassy of the Union

In May 1919, the Russia-based Special Correspondent of the British news agency the Press Association, mentioned in an article how the Bolsheviks, and the "Jewish wirepullers" behind them, had permitted the Jewish residents of Kharkov to make their traditional Passover cakes, whilst simultaneously prohibiting the baking of Easter cakes by the city's Christian residents.

Four more Holocaust survivors from Elie Wiesel's home-town of Sighet.
Klara Wizel (2nd from left), who was tattooed with the number A-7845 at Auschwitz-Birkenau on June 28, 1944, pictured with her two sisters—both of whom also survived Auschwitz—and brother Lazar, who survived the Holocaust by moving to Russia before it started.
In the 2014 book Auschwitz Escape: The Klara Wizel Story by Danny Naten and R. J. Gifford, we learn that during November 1944 a 17 year-old Wizel and approximately seventy other sickly-looking women and girls were selected for the gas chambers by the notorious Dr. Mengele whilst conducting an inspection of their barracks.
They were marched immediately to the "bathhouse", where Wizel was given a black dress to wear, and they were all told to take a seat in the stadium-esque seating in the room (p.109) After a few hours, five big German guards burst in and ordered the women out:
We walked for a short period, until we came to a smaller brick-style building where we were shoved inside. Again, we were told to wait. A small bit of relief permeated the room. People gasped when they realized this wasn't the gas chamber but a small holding room next to it. But, I knew now, this was the end. The next door waiting for us, the next door we would go through would be the door entering the Auschwitz gas chamber. (p.112)
Despite being aware that they were in waiting-room for a homicidal gas chamber, except for Wizel, all seventy-odd of the other women and girls soon fell asleep.
I walked around and touched the walls. They were made of bricks, but not real bricks. They were the inferior kinds that were more dirt or adobe (earth and straw) than cement. Yes, I knew bricks from the days in my family’s dry goods business. I found a window out of view of the door, with bars, and I pushed on one of the bricks to see if I could get it to move. It didn't budge. I tried another, but again, nothing. Then I noticed that there were marks where it looked like another prisoner had dug around the bottom of one of the bricks. My hands shook, but I pushed and pulled at that brick.
I switched to rocking it back and forth, and it started to move. Once it was free, I used it to chip at the others. It took no time at all. The other bricks just pulled out, one after another. It was such a small passage, but my slender body slid under the iron, and I scrambled through the space, into the night.
I had escaped! I felt the fresh, cold air and a release from the horror. I wanted to live now, with all my heart. The freedom was so quick, so sudden, and so new that I forgot about dying. In a way, I had already died, so moving forward became the only option. I was still in the middle of the prison camp, and I still had an ordered death sentence from Mengele. They had my number. They had written it down. It was only a matter of time before they put me back into that room.
Wizel then escaped from Auschwitz-Birkenau by sneaking onto a train that was transferring 100 female prisoners to the womens forced-labour camp Mährisch Weisswasser (= Moravian White-Water; now in the Czech Rep.), a sub-camp of Gross-Rosen. On her arrival the Germans immediately put her in the camp hospital.
In her Auschwitz Chronicle 1939-1945 (H. Holt & Co: 1990) Danuta Czech details several separate transfers, totalling nearly 700 female Birkenau prisoners, to Gross-Rosen during November 1944, but for obvious reasons she doesn't list each of prisoner number (pp. 743-756). Wizel was possibly on one of these transports, if she did actually leave Birkenau during November 1944, and there is likely a document in the Auschwitz museum proving it.
Wizel's claim to have escaped Auschwitz is highly improbable, and her story about escaping a gas chamber waiting-room is obviously a complete fabrication. None of the alleged gas chambers at Birkenau had a mud-brick waiting-room as per her description, and regardless, according to the orthodox narrative: gassings ceased at Birkenau on November 2, 1944 (Ibid, p.743).

German historian Norbert Frei wrote of an interview he conducted with one of the western journalists who were invited to witness the presentation of the findings of the 'Polish-Soviet Extraordinary Commission for Investigating the Crimes Committed by the Germans in the Majdanek Extermination Camp':
"Dan De Luce, who participated in an August 1944 tour of the remains of Majdanek on behalf of the AP [Associated Press], explained in an interview with the author on May 7, 1986, that after the visit he remained distrustful of the Soviet information."
Immediately following his visit to Majdanek De Luce wrote the following article which contains information that he later admitted to finding distrustful. And he was right not to trust the Soviets. Numerous claims contained within the piece have now either been heavily reined in or abandoned entirely. Tomasz Kranz, the present director if the Majdanek museum, admitted in 2005 that the Polish-Soviet Extraordinary Commission "were motivated more by a political and propaganda agenda than by a search for historical truth."

British musician Paul Weller of The Jam and The Style Council
Music journalist Barry Cain writes in his 2007 book 77 Sulphate Strip about visiting the former Nazi concentration camp Dachau with the rock band The Jam in April 1977, and relates a extremely garbled story about Ilse Koch aka 'the Red Witch of Buchenwald' one of the band's entourage told him:
In the camp museum, manager John Weller [Paul Weller's father] looks at a picture of Nazis burning books before the war. The caption runs: 'where books are burnt humans will be burnt in the end.' Henrich Heine.
He remembers a newspaper report at the end of the war detailing the surreal sex life of a woman SS commandant. Every time a new batch of prisoners arrived she would choose the most virile-looking and lay him that night. The following morning she'd whip him to death, cut off his penis and pickle it in a jar. When her home was raided by American soldiers they found a room full of jars. She was known as the 'preying mantis' 1
Several years later, Weller's subsequent band The Style Council released a song called Ghosts of Dachau, which includes the line "Don't go to the showers".

Built in 1856, the original train station of the town of Auschwitz, then part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire
[From the Vienna Fremden Blatt, of November 14, 1889.)
At Wadomice, a town of Galicia, but little known, a trial is now taking place, the interest of which extends far over the limits of this monarchy. The crime imputed to the accused, "trade of emigrants to America," was committed by the same persons at the same time in Austria-Hungary and Germany. The prosecuting attorney, Tarnowsky, referring to this "trade," says in one part of his accusation that "there existed within the limits of Austria a territory which actually was beyond the reach of the law, where, in defiance of order and personal liberty, all kinds of tricks were played upon unfortunate emigrants." Nor did the prosecuting attorney omit to name the high officials who not only suffered this state of things to go on, but who, in some instances, even prompted the perpetration of these crimes.
As far as the police is concerned, it must be owned with shame that it lent a willing hand for a monthly remuneration or a certain percentage, and that, instead of preventing crimes, they committed them. In mitigation, however, it must be said that they were subject to the orders of the district authorities, whose instructions, as they allege, they simply carried out.
This trial also proves again the well-known fact that criminals are a fraternity, which is international and interconfessional. Polish, German, and Hungarian criminals here go hand in hand to cheat and rob Polish, German, and Hungarian emigrants. Christians and Jews for years carried on a nefarious traffic in human beings, selected alike from the ranks of Christians and Jews. Criminals flock together everywhere: they understand each other without regard to nationality and religion.
All the accused (sixty-five in number) were divided into 28 sections, and arraigned on the following charges: Violence and privation of personal liberty (par. 93), extortion (par. 98), abuse of official power (pars. 101 and 1021, accepting bribes (par. 104), bribing others (seduction) to abuse official power (par 105). robbery (par. 109), fraud (par. 197), false assumption of N official title (par. 199), concealment of deserters (par. 290), and inducing soldiers to desert (par. 222). The names of the principal offenders are: Julius Neumann, keeper of railway refreshment room at Auschwitz; Jacob Klausner, merchant; Simon Herz, cattle-dealer; Julius Lowenberg, merchant; Marcell Iwanicki, internal-revenue officer and chief of police; Adam Kastocki, custom-house official; Arthur Landau, merchant; Isaac Lunderer, merchant; Josef Eintracht, manufacturer of varnish; Herman Zeitlinger, railway door-keeper; Ernest Edward Zopoth, cashier at the railway station at Auschwitz, and Vienna Zwilling, farmer.
STATISTICS CONCERNING EMIGRATION.
Inquiries made by the courts of justice show that emigration to America from some of the districts of Galicia has assumed gigantic dimensions. In proportion to emigration is the sale of farms and the spread of pauperism, and if the books of the agent of the Hamburg steam-ship line seized at Auschwitz show that from May. 1887, to July, 1888, the sum of 695,051 florins was received for passage tickets, after deduction of agent's provision, and that the agent of the North German Lloyd took in the course of two months 27,313 florins, the sums are by no means all enumerated which annually find their way abroad. The reason why Auschwitz was selected by the steam-ship lines as the main point where to establish their agencies in Galicia was because it is the only town which is in direct railway communication with the German sea-ports.
The most notorious of the agents appointed by the Hamburg Lino was the. leaseholder of the railway refreshment rooms at Auschwitz—Julius Neumann. His outrageous conduct at last attracted the attention of the railway company, who gave him the choice to either give up the agency or the lease of the restaurant. As the. former could flourish only as long as he was at the same time lease-holder of the restaurant, he made over the latter, "pro forma," in 1882 to Herz & Lowenberg, but remained as silent partner. In this way the first emigration company was started at Auschwitz. Their immense gains soon created competition, which reached its climax when the controller of the custom-house and the commissary of police formed a partnership with the railway cashier and the door-keeper, and established an agency for emigrants on the premises of the railway depot. No emigrant could escape them, because every passenger had to come in contact with one or the other of these officials. The last established agency authorized by the provincial government was that of Klausener, at Brodly, who was the agent of the Cunard Steam-ship Company.
For some time the competing companies, by reducing the fares and increasing the commission of their agents, tried to monopolize the trade each for itself, until in 1886 they formed a ring, regulated the prices, and consolidated the different companies under one firm, authorized by Government, and styled the "Hamburg Agency at Auschwitz." Competition having now come to an end, they could henceforth more effectually fleece the emigrants by charging arbitrary prices.
DIVISION OF LABOR.
After consolidation had taken place, a system was organized to hire subagents, runners, and a force of men armed and provided with clubs, who had to escort the emigrants from the railway station to the hotel, owned by one of the company, where exorbitant prices were charged them for the poorest kind of accommodation, until the time had come for their departure.
We now come to the worst feature of the case. Railway officials, as well as police and revenue officers, were induced by the agents to give their aid, for a monthly pay, and they not only suffered this state of things to go on, but even took an active part in it. One Bezirkshauptmann (chief officer of the county) named Foderick, received an annual salary of 1,000 florins. Not only the Austrian officials allowed themselves to be bribed, but also the Prussian frontier guards accepted money from the agents. Nothing, in fact, was left undone to turn the stream of emigration to Auschwitz. Whenever emigrants refused to buy their tickets there or had already a ticket which had been sent to them from America, then the commissary of police appeared on the scene. This unscrupulous and avaricious official came to the railway station on the arrival of every train arrayed in full uniform, and had those emigrants pointed out to him by his agents, who accompanied the train, who had bought their tickets already or were going by other lines. They were then ordered to enter the office of the police commissary to show their documents and their money; and the tickets which they already had were confiscated, the commissary ordering them in his character of imperial royal police officer to purchase tickets at the imperial royal agency otherwise he would be compelled to arrest them and send them home again. Those who had no money to buy a second ticket were handed over to the police constables to be sent home.
After the opening of the Bremen agency, in May, 1888, the situation of the company became more difficult. A new philanthropist made his appearance on the stage, the owner of real estate and member of numerous corporations, Vincenz Zwilling. He was intrusted with the management of this agency in the fall of 1887 by the agent of the North German Lloyd at Krakow. At first he did not seem to be in a hurry to establish himself; he was probably negotiating with the rival company to come to terms with him. When he found that his efforts in that direction were fruitless he mounted the high horse of patriotism and philanthropy and petitioned the provincial government, claiming to have been solicited by the gentry to take charge of the Bremen agency because he could no longer stand quietly and see the wicked doings of the Hamburg agency. To prevent the public, however, from mistaking the Bremen agency for the Hamburg agency, he demanded the closing of the latter. This request the authorities did not grant, but he was allowed to open his agency in May, 1888.
The commission which the company allowed him was 3½ florins for each passenger, guarantying him, aside from his annual income of 6,000 florins, with no other duty to perform except to sign his name to the passage ticket. Zwilling thereupon commenced to organize his clerical staff. He engaged none but persons who had gained their experience at the Hamburg agency, and who knew all their secrets. The energy displayed is proven by the fact that from May 10 to July 24 Zwilling received for commission 1,781 florins, and Zeitinger, his chief clerk, 400 florins. The struggle between the two competing agencies was a most desperate one, and fights were of frequent occurrence at remote villages, at railway stations, and in the cars between the representatives of rival agencies. The scenes at the railway depot at Auschwitz, where the armed runners of both agencies posted themselves to receive the emigrants, defy description. Blood flowed freely, each party trying to get possession of the emigrants, who thereby suffered as much as the runners themselves by being knocked about. After the fight was over each party drove its victims to its own agency.
The office of the Hamburg agency was divided off in the center by a railing, in front of which stood crowded together the emigrants, while behind it strutted a person attired in a fancy uniform, trying to make believe that he was an imperial official, while his clerks addressed him as "Herr Bezirkshauptmann." A picture of the Emperor, in life-size, adorned the wall, for the purpose of giving the room the air of an imperial office. Outside the door were posted several runners, with orders to let nobody in or out during proceedings. The emigrants were then told to hand over their documents and their cash, which they usually did without any remonstrance. Arbitrary prices were demanded for tickets. In case of refusal the commissary of police was sent for, who appeared in full uniform, and threatened with arrest and transportation home. If threats had no effect, he would slap their faces and threaten to hand them over to the military authorities for evading military duty. This would invariably have the desired result. If an emigrant was short of money, the agent would telegraph in the emigrant's name to the relatives to send some.
Nor did the robbery end here. One of the clerks, Halatek, conceived the idea of bringing an alarm-clock to the office, when immigrants were told that a telegram had to be sent to Hamburg to find out whether there was still a vacant berth. The alarm-clock was set in motion, and after a while an answer came back, for which the emigrant, as a matter of course, had to pay. Telegrams were also sent to the "American Emperor" to find out whether he would permit the landing of a certain emigrant. All these "telegrams" had to be paid for by the emigrant. Another trick to extort money was for one of the clerks to put on a fancy uniform and pretend to be a surgeon to examine the emigrants and find out whether they were fit to go to America. This "examination" also had to be paid for. Sometimes an emigrant was pronounced to be unfit and he was given to understand that by offering 10 florins the "surgeon" he would be passed, which was frequently done. Passports for America were also issued and charged for with 10 or 20 florins. At the Hotel de Zator, kept by one of the gang, the emigrants had to pay exorbitant prices for the poorest kind of accommodations. What was left to them in Austria was finally taken away from them when they reached Hamburg.
From May, 1887, to July, 1888, 5,799 persons, aged from twenty to thirty-two years and liable therefore to military duty, were taken from the population.
Finally, however, the catastrophe came. A week before the closing of both agencies the agents were threatened with criminal proceedings and the publication of each other's doings. At the beginning of July, 1888, the governor of the province of Galicia and the president of the police at Krakow, instructed a police officer to proceed to Auschwitz and make a full report. On his arrival there a last attempt was made to avert the impending ruin by Landerer, who tried to bribe the officer by offering him 50 florins and a valuable ring. The officer accepted both, and, after depositing them, reported everything to his superiors who, after investigation, arrested the whole gang. Three hundred and seventy-seven witnesses will give testimony at the main trial, during which no less than four hundred and thirty-nine letters and other communications will be read, among the latter two communications from the ministry of public defense; depositions of the Austro-Hungarian consulates in Bremen, Hamburg, and New York; statements made by the minister of war, and a letter of the ministry of the interior of the German Empire.

Firing a burst of atrocity-propaganda, U.S. Secretary of War Robert Patterson
On Thursday, July 13, 1944, Patterson led a press conference in Washington D.C. during which numerous weapons were shown off to the journalists. Two Army experts in booby trap detection were present to give details of the latest diabolical creations dreamt up by the Germans:
"One was a box of deadly hard candy with thermite centers which the enemy left behind as he retreated in Italy. When first plumped into the mouth of an unsuspecting Allied soldier the candy tasted good. However, when the core was reached the moisture in the soldier's mouth set the thermite on fire—and thermite burns with one of the hottest flames known to man."1
I'm no chemist, and know nothing about thermite or the different types of it, but it requires temperatures upwards of 1200°C to ignite it.2 Whereas the average temperature of saliva in a human mouth is a mere 37°C.
Regardless of the facts, had Nazi thermitic candy been a real thing, in action it might have looked something like this:3
Patterson's booby trap experts also made claims of:
"Another German trick is to replace the liquid soap in common soap dispensers with concentrated sulphuric acid. The hands of many men have been badly burned when he rubbed the powerful acid into his skin.4
"Another gadget is an innocent looking cake of soap which can be used for some time and then, when the out coating is worn away, detonates an explosive to blow off the hands."5

Churchill with Molotov and Soviet ambassador Ivan Maisky in the gardens of 10 Downing Street, May 26, 1942
Imperial War Museum
Following is the beginning of Molotov's speech at the Sixth Session of the Supreme Soviet of the U.S.S.R., Moscow, March 30, 1940. It was of course made when the Soviet Union had a non-aggression treaty with Nazi Germany, and some six months after the Soviet invasion of Poland.
Five months have elapsed since the last session of the Supreme Soviet. In this brief interval events have occurred which are of first-rate importance in the development of international relations. It, therefore behoves us at this session of the Supreme Soviet to examine questions relating to our foreign policy. Recent events in international life must be examined first of all in light of the war which broke out in central Europe last autumn. So far there have been no big battles in this war between the Anglo-French bloc and Germany, matters being confined to isolated engagements, chiefly on sea, and also in the air. It is known, however, that the desire for peace expressed by Germany at the end of last year was declined by the Governments of Great Britain and France, and as a result preparations for expansion of the war were further intensified on both sides.
Germany, which has latterly come to unite about 80 million Germans, which has brought certain neighbouring States under her sway, and which has in many respects strengthened her military might, has evidently become a dangerous competitor to the principal imperialist powers of Europe—Great Britain and France. The latter therefore declared war on Germany under the pretext of fulfilling their obligations towards Poland. It is now clearer than ever how far the real aims of the Governments of these Powers are removed from the purpose of defending disintegrated Poland or Czecho-slovakia. This is shown if only by the fact that the Governments of Great Britain and France have proclaimed that their aim in this war is to smash and dismember Germany, although this aim is still being concealed from the masses of the people under cover of slogans of the defence of “democratic” countries and “rights” of small nations.
Inasmuch as the Soviet Union refused to become an abettor of England and France in this imperialist policy towards Germany, their hostility towards the Soviet Union became still more pronounced, vividly showing how profound are the class roots of the hostile policy of the imperialists towards the Socialist State.
