Debunking the myth of the Holocaust
Photos of German concentration camps below show that prisoners had access to banks, hospital clinics, swimming pools, libraries, leisure halls and even brothels. When their time was up, they were released from the camp.
These photos show that the German Nazis treated the concentration camp inmates humanely.
The photos of dead corpses being thrown into pits were of the prisoners who died in typhus epidemics. Typhus is a disease that causes diarrhea and severe and rapid weight loss. People who die from it are usually emaciated in appearance. It is prone to occur in people whose immune resistance is lowered by insufficient food intake. Loss of weight due to typhus illness in already underweight people caused the skeletal appearance of many of its victims.
Atrocity propaganda: The faking of photos is often employed in atrocity propaganda campaigns that are done to demonize a nation.
Towards the end of the war, when the Allied bombing became severe, cutting off the food supply to the camps, the camps’ burial system was overwhelmed by the number of people who died from typhus. In addition to the camp inmates, these camps had to bury people who lived in the surrounding locale.

Typhus was called “gaol fever” in England. Other names for the disease are camp fever, jail fever, hospital fever, ship fever, famine fever, putrid fever, and petechial fever (because of the rash, “petechiae”, it produces). Anne Frank, who was sent to the Bergen-Belsen camp, died of typhus, which she contracted at the camp.
Typhus is spread by the louse (plural is “lice”), which are carriers of the organism called ‘rickettsia’ that causes this illness. Right: Soldiers living in the trenches picking off lice from their clothes during WWI.
Typhus was a common disease in prisons, concentration camps and other places where large numbers of people collected, in the pre-antibiotic age.
Rickettsia prowazekii is a bacterium that causes epidemic typhus.

Typhus was rampant during the American Civil War, and prisoners held in American concentration camps looked just like the ones in German concentration camps.
What is Gaol Fever?
Symptoms include severe headache and muscle pain, fever, delirium and a characteristic rash […]
The cause of epidemic typhus is Rickettsia prowazekii, bacteria usually transmitted by body lice. It thrives in overcrowded places where sanitation is poor and immune systems are weakened by hunger. Outbreaks were common in armies well into the 20th century, and it often killed more soldiers than combat, as in Napoleon’s 1812 retreat from Moscow. The last outbreaks of gaol fever to kill significant numbers of Europeans were in Hitler’s concentration camps.
It commonly occurred in the appalling conditions of Britain’s prisons before Victorian reformers cleaned them up, hence the name ‘gaol fever’. Being held in prison before trial could be tantamount to a sentence of death, and more died of gaol fever in the 1700s than were executed.

Newham Prison: This was called hell on earth. Durham Prison (center) and Fleet Prison (right). Typhus was common in these places, and was called “gaol fever”. Many epidemics in the 19th century and earlier attributed to “plague” were actually typhus epidemics.

Her relative said that she had spots on her body, and when the rash turned black, they thought she was going to die. If a typhus rash stayed red, many people believed the patient would survive the disease. Typhus was a common disease in the first half of the last century and earlier.
The Nazis tried to counter typhus disease epidemics by shaving the heads of the prisoners. Lice, which are the carriers of the bacteria that cause typhus, live in hair and clothes.
Nits (lice eggs) in hair. They are slightly smaller than the size of sesame seeds. On the right, close-up of nits.
This is why you see many prisoners in German concentration camps with shaven heads. Prisoners’ hair was shaven to prevent prisoners from getting typhus. (Note typhus is a different disease to typhoid. Typhoid is a gastrointestinal disease that is caught from eating or drinking contaminated food.)
Left: Shaving heads at Sachsenhausen Camp. Inmates walking in Auschwitz Camp.
In addition, the Nazis tried to stop the epidemic by fumigating the clothing and bedding of the prisoners to kill the lice and eggs that carried the bacteria causing typhus. They would disinfect clothes, sheets, pillow cases and blankets by hanging them on racks and releasing Zyklon gas into the delousing cubicles to kill the lice.
A dispenser that supplied hydrogen cyanide gas (Zyklon B) to the delousing chambers (chambers to disinfect clothes and similar materials) like the ones on the right. The delousing chambers were too small to be used for killing large numbers of people.
Americans used DDT powder during WWII to kill lice and control typhus epidemics, and Europeans, including Germans, used hydrogen cyanide (hydrocyanic acid). Zyklon B is the German name for hydrogen cyanide.
Left: Cans containing hydrogen cyanide pellets (Zyklon B). These pellets were placed into dispensing machines like the Degesch machine above. Cyanide was used by Germans (and other Europeans) as an insecticide. The insecticide was released in the form of gas into chambers that held the clothes and other items for disinfection, and delousing took place that way. Americans used DDT powder. Right: American soldier applies DDT powder to a fellow soldier.
Left: During WWII, Americans used DDT powder to delouse hair and clothes. Right: Lice infestation of clothing.
Somehow the story of Germans trying to save the lives of prisoners, by controlling the epidemics of typhus with the fumigation of clothing and bedding using cyanide gas, got turned into the “Germans gassed 6 million Jews to death” myth.
Left: Lice on clothing. Right: Inmate and officer working at a delousing chamber. In the delousing procedure, lice in the clothes was killed. In the photo, the racks hold clothing. The racks are mobile and so can be slid in and out of the chamber. Clothes hangers can be seen on the racks.
However, despite the claims that the Germans killed prisoners in shower rooms by releasing cyanide gas into them, many scientists, including a chemist who worked at the Max Planck Institute, could not find any evidence that shower rooms were used for killing by gas. Also, the Holocaust revisionist scientists and other experts found no evidence that the gas cubicles that were used for delousing clothes in these camps were used to kill humans. The fumigation cubicles were too small for one thing, and could not fit the dozens of people into them that they would have had to for the “six million gassed by cyanide gas” story to be true. On the whole, the small fumigation cubicles were impractical for gassing people, especially large numbers of people.
Lice and nits prefer to settle in the seams and creases of clothing.
Furthermore, you can see from the pictures of the de-lousing fumigation cubicles that they were equipped with racks and hangers, on which clothes and bedding were draped.

In conclusion, the story that prisoners were gassed in shower rooms has too many holes and inconsistencies to be credible. The claims about mass gassings are not supported by scientific findings.
Below are two images that contrast with one another. In current practice, a Hazmat suit and gas mask are worn by those people dealing with patients who have suffered cyanide poisoning.
On the right, a drawing shows a man handling dead inmates who were supposed to have been gassed. This is a drawing by a former inmate of a German camp. Note the man is not wearing gloves. His torso is naked.
It is highly unlikely that people would have handled the bodies of people who had died from cyanide poisoning without wearing the proper clothing and without any gloves on. They would have been exposed to highly toxic chemicals that would have come out through the pores of the skin of the dead bodies, and would have become sick.
LEFT: A man dressed in a Hazmat suit and wearing gloves. This protection is worn to prevent the absorption of cyanide residues through the bare skin and to stop the inhalation of deadly cyanide gas fumes emanating from the poisoned patient’s body. RIGHT: A man with a naked torso is handling allegedly gassed bodies in this illustration made by a former concentration camp inmate.

IMAGE: San Quentin gas chamber. Only chambers of this kind can be used for executing people with dangerous gases such as cyanide gas.
Based on the evidence above, the story of prisoners being gassed in shower rooms with leaky wooden doors in the camps is not credible. Such gassings would cause the death or serious illness of practically everyone around the shower rooms for a distance of several meters, including the guards standing outside.
Below is a typical gas chamber used for executing prisoners in the US. This is a chamber that can be tightly sealed to ensure that no lethal gas can escape and kill the people outside operating the chamber or witnessing the execution. The chair has straps to keep the prisoner tightly secure and prevent them from trying to escape, by breaking the windows, for example.
A gas chamber for executing prisoners in America. Cyanide gas was used in these gas chambers. It was the same gas used to fumigate clothes and other personal belongings in the German camps of WWII. The door could hermetically seal the chamber, which was important to prevent the escape of lethal gas to anyone outside the chamber in the execution room.
You can see how the chambers are hermetically sealed and have ventilation pipes coming from them to vent the gas safely away after the execution.
Chambers would have to be equipped with straps to restrain the prisoners being gassed to stop them trying to escape.
The shower rooms that were claimed to be where camp inmates were gassed were just that––shower rooms.
IMG: A shower room which was supposed to be a gas chamber (Mauthausen Camp). The shower heads were there to fool people, according to some camp inmates. However, it is unlikely they were used for this purpose. The doors when closed do not hermetically seal the room. There is no blue staining of the walls. There are no restraints holding the prisoners down either. (Photo from Further Glory)

The Nazis were noted for being fastidious people. They would not have built leaky gas chambers with wooden doors, and without proper ventilation pipes to pipe away lethal gas – the same as no gas chamber in America would be built with those things omitted.

Nazi concentration camps – What were they really like?
Activities that could be done in the camps include swimming, playing soccer, tending a greenhouse, horse grooming, playing in an orchestra, taking part in plays, and breeding rabbits. There were even brothels, dental clinics (equipped with modern dental equipment), libraries, and post offices in the camps. The camps had their own currency system.
Conditions deteriorated only in the later stages of the war due to the cutting off the food supply to Germans by Allied bombing.

Red Cross: A total of 271,301 deaths in camps
Translation of the above document:
From: International Red Cross, Arolsen, West Germany
Date: 11 July 1979
Compiled from the records of deaths kept in concentration camps
German camp records released by the Soviets in 1989: 280,000 deaths in total
The document, which shows death records from the Nazi concentration camps, is stored at Arolsen, Germany. According to the Auschwitz Museum, after the fall of communism in 1989, the Soviet Union turned over to the International Committee of the Red Cross 46 volumes of Death Books (Sterbebücher) which they had confiscated from the Auschwitz camp.
These records, which were kept by the political department (Gestapo) at Auschwitz, show that there were around 69,000 registered prisoners who died between July 29, 1941 and December 31, 1943.
The Death books from June 14, 1940 to July 28, 1941 are missing, as are the death books from all of 1944 and January 1945.
Based on these records, the International Red Cross has estimated that a total of around 135,000 registered prisoners died in the three Auschwitz camps. These figures are for Jews and non-Jews.
When did the “six million” number first come out?
The “six million” figure pertaining to Jewish suffering or disasters and other adverse events affecting the Jewish population was circulated long before the internment of Jews in German camps during World War II.
Some accounts citing the six million figure can be found even before Hitler came to power (he became leader of the Nazi Party in 1933), and before the Nazi Party even existed (it was formed in 1920).
It was only in 1939 that Jewish and citizens of non-German countries started to be interned in large numbers in German internment camps. (Similarly, the Japanese were interned in large numbers in internment camps in America at the outbreak of hostilities between America and Japan).
The following video shows that references to “six million Jews” suffering a calamity were made in nine American and Canadian newspapers between 1915 and 1938. This was before the large-scale internment of Jews and similar people began to take place in Germany and occupied nations.
Mention of “six million Jews” appear in nine newspapers from 1915-1938
And the “European Holocaust” is mentioned in one newspaper, in 1936.
1. The Sun (New York), June 6th, 1915, fifth section of the front page:
Quote: “Since the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem the Jewish people have had no darker page in their history than that which the Russian Government is writing today. Six million Jews, one-half of the Jewish people throughout the world, are being persecuted, hounded, humiliated, tortured, starved […]”
Quote: “Dear brethren, have mercy on the six million Jews in Russia and take our part! Ask the Russian Ministers why we are being tortured so mercilessly.”
2. New York Times October 18th, 1918, p.12:
Quote: “Six Million Souls Will Need Help to Resume Normal Life When War Is Ended.”
3. New York Times, September 8th, 1919, p.6:
Quote: “Mass Meeting Hears That 127,000 Jews Have Been Killed and 6,000,000 Are in Peril.”
Quote: “This fact that the population of 6,000,000 souls in Ukrainia and in Poland have received notice through action and by word that they are going to be completely exterminated––this fact stands before the whole world as the paramount issue of the present day.”
4. New York Times, November 12th, 1919, p.7:
Quote: Paul Warburg: ‘”The successive blows of contending armies have all but broken the back of European Jewry,” he said, “and have reduced to tragically unbelievable poverty, starvation and disease about 6,000,000 souls, or half the Jewish population of the earth.”‘
5. Atlanta Constitution February 23, 1920, front page:
Quote: (Article is titled “$5000 Raised to Save Suffering Jews”) “[Mr. Rusland] called upon the Atlanta Jews to arise to the occasion, and to contribute to the emergency fund in order that the lives of six millions of Jewish people may be saved.”
Quote: “[Rusland] drew a graphic picture of the starvation and suffering of the 6,000,000 Jews who live in eastern Europe and Palestine and reviewed the persecution they have undergone, not only in the last four years, but for almost a century.”
6. New York Times, May 7, 1920, p.11:
Quote: “The fund for Jewish war sufferers in Central and Eastern Europe, where six millions face horrifying conditions of famine, disease and death, was enriched yesterday by a contribution of $100,000 from Nathan Straus.”
7. New York Times, July 20, 1921, p.2:
Quote: Headline: “BEGS AMERICA SAVE 6,000,000 IN RUSSIA”
“Massacre Threatens All Jews as Soviet Power Wanes, Declares Kreinin, Coming Here for Aid.”
Quote: “Russia’s 6,000,000 Jews are facing extermination by massacre. As the famine is spreading, the counter-revolutionary movement is gaining and the Soviet’s control is waning. This statement is borne out by official documents presented to the Berlin Government, which show that numerous pogroms are raging in all parts of Russia and the Ukraine.”
8. Montreal Gazette, December 29th, 1931, p.6:
Quote: Headline: “Six Million Jews Face Starvation”
Quote: “Six million Jews in Eastern Europe face starvation, and even worse, during the coming winter.”
9. New York Times, May 1, 1936, p.14: This does not state six million but mentions the “European holocaust”
Quote: “stressed the intolerable sufferings of the Jews in the European Holocaust”,
10. New York Times, Feb 23, 1938, p.23:
Quote: “A depressing picture of 6,000,000 Jews in Central Europe deprived of protection or economic opportunities, slowly dying of starvation, all hope gone, was presented to the teachers by Jacob Tarshis, known to his audience as The Lamplighter.”
New York Times, October 6, 1940, p.10: “New World Order”
NEW WORLD ORDER PLEDGED TO JEWS
Arthur Greenwood [Deputy Leader of the British Labor Party], member without portfolio in the British War Cabinet, assured the Jews of the United States that when victory was achieved an effort would be made to found a new world order based on the ideals of “justice and peace.”
Talmud: “Romans killed 40 million Jews at Bar Kokhba”
Bar Kokhba was a famous fortress of the Jews that the Romans placed under a siege during ancient times. In the Talmud, it is written that 40 million Jews were killed during this siege. This sounds like the “Nazis killed six million in the Holocaust” story. There is a history of Jews inflating and exaggerating the numbers of Jews killed and the atrocities they suffered at the hands of their opponents.
This drawing is from “Tales of the Holohoax”.
Auschwitz officially reduces death toll from 4 million to 1.5 million
In 1992, the Poland Government reduced the number dead at Auschwitz by 250%. This gives lie to the 6 million figure instantly. However, Holocaust promoters still use the “six million” figure. (The International Red Cross gives a much lower figure: a total of people died at the camps: 270,000.)
Newspaper article with headline announcing that the number of deaths at Auschwitz had been reduced to a million.
In 1948, Auschwitz displayed a memorial tablet that mourns “four million” killed “at the hands of the Nazi murderers”. Later, in 1989, after the USSR released the Death Registry Volumes, the plaque was changed to one that said that “one and a half million men, women, and children, mainly Jews” perished in the camp, a reduction in deaths of 2.5 million people.
Holocaust researchers, e.g. Ernst Zundel, have been imprisoned for only questioning the six million figure.
The memorial plaque in Auschwitz that was erected in 1948 says that 4 million inmates died. 1948 was the year that Israel was established. This figure was changed to 1.5 million in 1989 after the USSR released the Death Registry Volumes. Holocaust revisionists are imprisoned for doing what the Auschwitz museum did: revising down the number of the people who died in the camps. Because they simply questioned the number who died in the camps, Holocaust revisionists are branded as “antisemites” and “deniers” (of the truth).
As many as 150,000 Jews were in Hitler’s Army
According to Bryan Mark Rigg, author of “Hitler’s Jewish Soldiers”, there were 150,000 Jews in the German military, some of them officers.
“Hitler’s Jewish Soldiers” by Bryan Mark Rigg The Greatest Story Never Told
Even though Nazi Germany had race laws, it seems that these were interpreted loosely. For example, half-Jews were not allowed to serve in the Nazi Army. However, many Mischlinge (half-Jews) DID serve in the regular Germany army (Wehrmacht). The fact that these people were half-Jews was overlooked by the people in charge.
Some notable people who were Jews and served in the Nazi Army include Helmut Schmidt, the Chancellor of East Germany.

As many as 150000 Jews served in Hitlers military, some with the Nazi leader’s explicit consent, according to a U.S. historian who has interviewed hundreds of former soldiers.
Bryan Mark Rigg, history professor at the American Military University in Virginia, told Reuters on Thursday
“Arbeit Macht Frei” – Working literally set you free at the camps
The sign above the camps was “Arbeit Macht Frei”, which means “Work Makes You Free”. The camps were labor camps. The Germans wanted to utilize the labor of the prisoners to produce the weapons and other materials for their war machinery.
Prisoners could be set free early if they had shown themselves to be good workers. Hence, the sign with “Work makes you free” written on it was posted at the entry to these camps to encourage the prisoners to work hard.
Auschwitz, a town in Poland, was chosen as a site for a work camp by the Germans because it was a railway center. Auschwitz was located where several railways lines from all around western Europe intersected, making the transportation of raw materials and goods to and from the camp convenient.
Auschwitz was a major manufacturing center, producing synthetic rubber and medical and armament supplies.
These signs promised prisoners a reward of early release if they worked hard
If the camp inmates did their quota of work and behaved well, they were released after a set time. These discharges occurred during camp-leaving ceremonies where the prisoner received a certificate and a formal farewell from the camp commandant.
“Graduation” from the camps
Prisoners were released from the camps after they had finished their time.
Above is a release certificate from Auschwitz, and below is a photo showing the camp commandant of a camp in Hamburg farewelling prisoners who are being released. (Photos are from a Holocaust Museum)

“Arbeit Macht Frei” – “Work Makes You Free”. Working hard meant early release from the camps.
The Nazi camps were work camps: more evidence
It was to Germany’s advantage that prisoners be healthy so that they could work in the concentration camp factories to produce weapons and other goods needed for the war effort.
Long before World War II, Germany had labor camps for dissidents. In these labor camps, people were set to work.
In socialist Germany, everyone was assigned a job. If people agreed to the system, they were paid by the government in new government-issued currency. This system was very popular as it helped reduce unemployment which was one of the main problems of the hyperinflation period of the Weimar era. It gave people the chance to feed themselves and their families, and put a roof over their heads, and very importantly, gave people dignity. By the end of 1939, unemployment, which had been 50% at its peak, was practically wiped out. ihr.org
Despite the claims that the concentration camps were extermination camps – claims mainly supported by the Holocaust gassing story – much evidence exists that these camps served as work camps, much in the same way as they functioned before the outbreak of war and the internment of Jews.

The decision to build chemical factories at Auschwitz transformed both the camp and the town. On February 2, 1941, Herman Göring ordered the Jews in the town to be relocated to a ghetto, and German civilians moved into their former homes.
Auschwitz quickly went from a primitive Jewish town of 12,000 inhabitants to a modern German town of 40,000 people which included an influx of German engineers and their families. Both the main Auschwitz camp and the Birkenau camp were expanded in order to provide workers for the factories. Auschwitz – Monowitz

Japanese-Americans were interned in concentration camps too
- 110-120,000 Japanese were interned.
- 62% were American citizens
- Internment happened after Pearl Harbor.
- On the mainland, they were forced into western interior camps.
- On Hawaii, 1200-1800 of the 150,000 were interned.
- Even those who had 1/16 Japanese blood and orphaned infants were interned.
- There was an order that Japanese people were to be excluded from the West Coast.
- United Census Bureau assisted in internment of Japanese.
- There were 8 US Department of Justice camps
- 7000 German Americans and 3000 Italian Americans were also interned in the DOJ camps.

Diff’rent strokes for diff’rent folks: Germans used cyanide, USA used DDT for typhus control
During the Second World War disinfection was done with DDT powder in America, and with Zyklon B gas in Europe. Killing lice and nits (lice eggs) was an important measure to reduce the incidence of typhus, a common killer before the use of antibiotics was widespread, especially where people lived in close quarters, such as jails, labor camps and institutions.
The louse is a vector (carrier of an organism) for rickettsia prowazekii, the rod-like microorganism which causes typhus.
Clothing harbors lice and nits. They are found preferentially in creases and seams of clothing.

The Finnish too, like many other Europeans, used Zyklon B as an insecticide to control the typhus infection. Note the gas masks worn. Before the antibiotics came to be widely used, typhus was a major problem around the world. Starvation reduced resistance to disease and increased the likelihood of contracting typhus. Tuberculosis, typhoid fever (a gastrointestinal illness) and dysentery were other causes of morbidity and fatalities in the camps. Typhoid illness (a gastrointestinal infection) is often confused with typhus but the two diseases are quite different.

Note the similarity to American execution chambers. A tight seal is needed for this steaming operation. Photo: CW Porter RIGHT: Mississippi gas chamber for executing prisoners.

Germans also used a tunnel for large-scale disinfection of certain items. Carriages would pass into these tunnels on tracks. The heavy door would be closed. Then gas would be released into the tunnel for delousing. Note the heavy steel door on the left. It was suspended from the rails above. CW Porter

Heads were shaved to keep lice infestation down
German camp commandants shaved the heads of camp inmates to keep lice infestation down. Head lice were carriers of typhus, a deadly disease that was common in the camps. Controlling head lice also controlled body lice.

Quotes are from National Geographic: Head lice trigger body lice epidemics
Body lice causes typhus epidemics
Quote: Body lice, which cause highly lethal epidemics (trench fever, typhus and relapsing fever Borrelia), originate from head lice, an international group of scientists reported today.
Body lice originates from head lice
Quote: The discovery indicates that it is not possible to eradicate body lice without first eradicating head lice, which until now has proved impossible, according to the researchers.
Body lice and head lice are the same species
Quote: “Until now, head lice, which feed on the scalp and lay their eggs on hair, and body lice, which feed on the rest of the body and live in the creases of dirty clothes, were thought to be different species. However, researchers from the Emerging Infectious and Tropical Diseases Research Unit […] and two U.S. teams have shown that these lice have the same origin,” CNRS said.
Genetics of head and body lice are same
Quote: Through genetic analysis of the louse genome, the researchers observed that “it was impossible to distinguish the head louse from the body louse at the genetic level,” CNRS added.

Head lice turns into body lice by migrating to body
Quote: In addition, fieldwork has shown that, in populations living in extreme poverty, the proliferation of head lice led to the emergence of lice able to adapt to clothes and turn into body lice. These body lice were then able to cause epidemics of body lice and bacterial epidemics.
New discovery shows body lice can’t be eradicated directly
Quote: This discovery shows that it is not possible to eradicate body lice without first eradicating head lice, which until now has proved impossible. In addition, this explains the regular appearance of body lice in areas where they were previously unknown, when sanitary conditions rapidly deteriorate.
Head lice permanently endemic
Quote: “Head lice are therefore permanently in an endemic state. In highly unfavorable sanitary conditions, head lice proliferate, and some of them migrate into clothes, triggering a new epidemic of body lice,” CNRS said […]
How do you get head lice?
Quote: Getting head lice is not related to cleanliness of the person or their environment, according to the CDC.
Head lice spread by direct contact: camp, playgrounds, slumber parties
Quote: Head lice are spread by direct contact with the hair of an infested person. The most common way to get head lice is by head-to-head contact with a person who already has head lice. Such contact can be common among children during play at school, home, and elsewhere (e.g., sports activities, playgrounds, camp, and slumber parties).
Transmission spread by clothing, bedding, combs, towels
Quote: Uncommonly, transmission of head lice may occur by wearing clothing, such as hats, scarves, coats, sports uniforms, or hair ribbons worn by an infested person; using infested combs, brushes or towels; or lying on a bed, couch, pillow, carpet, or stuffed animal that has recently been in contact with an infested person, the CDC says.

‘Gaol Fever’: Typhus in American Civil War concentration camps
None of the German camps had execution rooms like the ones found in Soviet-occupied Latvia
The execution room of a detention and torture center run by the Soviet Union in Latvia. Bolsheviks occupied Latvia between 1940-1941. Execution was done by shooting. The room was carefully designed. Wooden boards covered the walls to absorb the bullets. The doors had wood panelling. Wood is well-known to muffle sound. The floor was covered with tiles so that the blood could be easily washed off. Curtains hung down the walls to prevent splashes of blood going onto the walls. The Horrible Year
A drain hole in the corner of one of the execution rooms in the detention center of the Soviets. 240 bullets were found in the groove that was near the hole. Countless bullets probably fell into the drain hole. The Horrible Year

Eisenhower’s camps: 500,000 Germans died
VIDEO: Learn the Truth of WW2 – Eisenhower’s death camps Youtube
Full video documentary about Eisenhower’s “death camps” that held German POWs here.
Eisenhower was able to circumvent the Geneva Protocols concerning the treatment of POWS by calling the German soldiers and actually ALL German civilians “disarmed enemy forces”. Using this designation, Eisenhower withheld food, water and other basic necessities to the POWs in the camps.
As a result, the post-war mortality of German POWs in Eisenhower’s camps was 500,000.
It is estimated that 1.5 million Germans, including civilians, died in Allied camps in total over the course of the war.
“Tales of the Holohoax” examined
This is a satirical expose of the Holocaust myth. The drawings may look facetious but the accompanying writing actually sheds much light on the so-called “atrocity” of the Holocaust and the examination of the so-called Holocaust is sober and uses sources from the literature, including scientifically sound research.
Below, one of the most famous images of the so-called Holocaust, is proven to be a fake. Doctoring photographs to show abuse and atrocities that did not happen is part of a phenomenon called “atrocity propaganda”. Atrocity propaganda is done to demonize a nation or a group of people. It can be used to perpetrate real atrocities.
Many of the famous photos depicting the so-called Holocaust or the “brutality” of the Nazi Germans are actually hoaxes.
The fake chimney in Auschwitz is shown below. It is not even attached to the building. It is supposed to be a chimney of a crematorium. The Soviets built it in 1947.
Dresden, Ohio was the site of a railway accident in 1912. The image from that accident turned up as an image depicting dead bodies in Auschwitz of 1944.
A railway disaster occurred in Dresden, Ohio, USA in 1912. The picture of the accident showed up later as an Auschwitz photo.
The photo on the right was used as a postcard by Jews in Russia.
Is Holocaust revisionism antisemitic?
It can be argued that correcting people’s understanding of the so-called Holocaust and pointing out disinformation about German concentration camps is prosemitic. It is also pro-gentile. It is to the benefit of everyone to be told the truth about any event, whether the audience is Jewish or Gentile. It also ends the persecution and slander of the German people.
Everyone, including Jews, deserves to know correct information. Therefore, Holocaust revisionism is not antisemitic but the opposite. It is prosemite and pro-gentile from the point of view that correcting misconceptions about historical views is helpful and useful to humanity.
Persecuting revisionists and spreading hysteria and paranoia about the Holocaust and treating any discussion about the Holocaust revisionism as a taboo subject plays into the hands of those who promote atrocity propaganda.
It should be asked: “Who is the real antisemite?” Who is promoting the view that all Jews must collude together to lie collectively about an event that concerns them? Who are the people who make it easier to spread the view that Jews think and act as a group that functions separately and in secret enmity to the gentile people they live amongst? Who is creating a backlash against Jews? Holocaust revisionists or Jews who advocate the shutting down of discussion about Germany’s treatment of Jews during WWII?
It should be noted that quite a few notable Holocaust revisionists or “deniers” are Jewish people ethnically. Some of them are communists too.
Is Holocaust revisionism pro-Nazi?
The position of Holocaust revisionism infers neither a pro-Nazi or anti-Nazi stance. Holocaust revisionism is just that: it is reviewing the history of the internment of prisoners in German camps during WWII, and revising misconceptions about them.
“Nazi” (Nationalsozializm) is German for national socialism. Nationalism and socialism are movements that were a phenomenon not only seen in post-Weimar Germany, they also existed (and currently exist) in many other parts of the world.
Nationalism and socialism can occur as a combined political ideology (national socialism) in nations, and they can occur separately (as nationalism and socialism) in countries too.
Germany is socialist today. Sweden is socialist. Many nations in western Europe and around the world are socialist. Iran, Syria, Kuwait, and Libya (before the fall of Gaddafi’s government) in the Middle East, and Norway, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom in Europe, and Canada, Venezuela and Ecuador in the Americas are all countries that can be considered “socialist”.
Some communists and former communists are Holocaust revisionists. For example, Paul Rassinier, Lenni Brenner and Horst Mahler (formerly communist and now national socialist) are all Holocaust revisionists or “deniers”. These three Holocaust revisionists are Jewish too.
Persecution of Holocaust heretics: modern-day witch hunts
Denial of the truths revealed through Holocaust revisionism should be seen as the real antisemitism. Suppression of the truth through censorship and persecution of revisionists through imprisonment, slander, bullying, physical attacks, verbal threats of violence, boycotting, blacklisting, and character assassination are all the tactics that Christian authorities used against the so-called heretics of the Christian religion who had discovered the earth was a sphere and revolved around the sun during the Dark Ages, pre-18th century.
These tactics are being used against Holocaust Revisionists. The same censorship, blacklisting, imprisonment, boycotting, blacklisting, expulsion and excommunication from society, physical attacks, legal harassment––all forms of persecution are being used against the truthtellers of the 20th and 21st centuries.
Religious heretics of the past
Galileo was an astronomer who put forward the heretic idea that the Earth revolves around the sun.
Galileo was put on trial for his heretical idea that the Earth revolved around the Sun. Like the Holocaust defamation laws in many countries, including Germany, truth was no defense back in those days. So even though Galileo could show proofs for his heretical ideas about the galaxy, he would be denounced and declared a heretic and put to death. In the Dark Ages, heretics against Christianity or Christianity-deniers were put to death. So even though Ernst Zundel, Germar Rudolf and Frederick Toben (among other Holocaust researchers) showed evidence that supported their views in court, the truth was no defense, and they were convicted for merely stating the results of their research.
Preventing the light from shining on the truth about the so-named Holocaust indicates that the people doing so have something to hide and something to gain by preventing the truth from being discovered.
The so-called Holocaust is used by some people to create an “us against them” mentality among Jews: Jews vs Gentiles. This helps the agenda of separatism and exceptionalism of some Jews. As “victims”, they can claim special privileges.
LEFT AND CENTER: Horst Mahler has been in prison for 12 years in Germany for the crime of “Holocaust denial”. For Horst Mahler, there is no such thing as free speech. In Germany, the truth is no protection. Even if you could prove your case that the Holocaust story was not true, you would still be jailed regardless.
RIGHT: Sylvia Horz, the lawyer for Horst Mahler, was also thrown into jail for showing she supported the work of Holocaust revisionists and that she believed parts of the Holocaust story were false during the course of the trial of her client.
Punishment of thought crimes of scientists; are we still living in the Dark Ages?
LEFT: Ursula Haverbeck was in her 80s when she was put into prison for Holocaust heresy. CENTER: Germar Rudolf, a chemist who used to work for the Max Planck Institute, was jailed for Holocaust heresy. RIGHT: Germar Rudolf having his mug shot taken after his arrest for heresy.
LEFT: Professor Robert Faurisson. He was assaulted by Zionist thugs and hospitalized. RIGHT: David Irving, a British historian, was jailed for Holocaust heresy. He too has been assaulted by Zionists for his stance on the so-called Holocaust.
LEFT: Fred Leuchter of the Leuchter Report. He worked in the corrections department in charge of the execution of prisoners. He visited German camps to study the so-called gas chambers. Because of the nature of his profession, he was familiar with the procedures involved and the equipment used in executions by cyanide gas. His report debunked the Holocaust story. For doing that, he was harassed and lost his job and found it hard to find another job in the field he was trained to perform in and had expertise in. Because of the single-minded pursuit to protect the sanctity of the official Holocaust story, Zionist groups exerted their influence in victimizing and persecuting him.
CENTER AND RIGHT: Australian Frederick Toben has been jailed twice in Australia for Holocaust heresy. His website “Adelaide Institute” has been banned by the Australian authorities. For this Holocaust heretic, there is no free speech.
LEFT: Professor Arthur Butz, an American who wrote a book about the Holocaust story called “The Hoax of the Century”, has been slandered in the media and treated like an outcast because of his Holocaust heresy. It has impacted his academic life, and the heads of the faculties within his university have disowned him. This excommunication by the general public and authorities was also a common feature of the treatment given to heretics in the Dark Ages.
CENTER AND RIGHT: Ernst Zundel was a Canadian who was deported to Germany, the country of his birth, to face trial for Holocaust heresy. He is shaking hands with David Cole, an American of Jewish ancestry who made a video debunking the gas chambers story. Being Jewish did not mean Cole escaped persecution. Bowing to pressure and the threats of being “excommunicated” by a powerful strata of Jewish society, he backtracked and disavowed his own work and research; he even denounced fellow Holocaust researcher Ernst Zundel as a liar and fraud. Later, he changed his position once again and supported Holocaust revisionism once more, recanting his backtracking, and made a public apology for attacking Zundel.
Excommunication in the 20th and 21st century involves being smeared as a racist, as a liar and as a would-be genocidist by the Zionist-dominated main-stream media, the influential and powerful shaper of public opinion.
Like the Christian church leaders in the Middle Ages, which would hold inquisitions and similar trials and use torture to extract “confessions” from heretics, the Zionist-dominated main-stream media of the West holds “inquisitions” and denounces heretics of the Holocaust religion, insisting on state-sanctioned and executed punishment for non-believers under draconian “Holocaust denial” laws that bypass the free speech protections.
Proving the truth of one’s positions and views by providing scientific and forensic evidence offers no protection under the law in nations that prohibit Holocaust heresy.
Likewise, showing proofs of the validity of the scientific theory that the Earth revolved around the sun conferred no indemnity to astronomers against persecution, including excommunication, imprisonment, torture and execution.
Persecution of religious heretics
LEFT: Being burned at the stake was a common punishment for religious heresy in the Dark Ages. People were also punished by execution for heresy or “witchcraft” in Puritan America in the 17th century. Persecution of modern-day heretics revolves around the Holocaust. Heresy against the Christian religion is no longer punished. However, denying any parts of the so-called Holocaust story is punished with prosecution and incarceration in many countries of the West (Germany, France, Australia, Canada, Austria, Great Britain). The US does not offer asylum for people facing prosecution for exercising their free speech. Simon Sheppard’s application for asylum on the basis that he was being persecuted for free speech for publishing a satirical cartoon about the Holocaust was denied. He was placed in jail as soon as he arrived on US soil. He was deported to the UK where he was put on trial and imprisoned for the cartoon.
RIGHT: Abe Foxman of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL)
The punishment for religious heresy in the Christian world was being burned at the stake and other forms of execution. In modern times, the punishment for Holocaust heresy in the Western world is media denunciation, slandering, blacklisting, career harassment and loss of job opportunities, financial and legal attacks, physical attacks, and even incarceration. Furthermore, the slandering and abuse (especially the labeling as anti-semitic or neo-Nazi or pro-genocide) at the hands of the general public, that, on the whole, is ignorant of the work of the Holocaust revisionists, compounds the persecution of the Holocaust heretics further.
LEFT AND CENTER: Heretic’s fork, a torture instrument. The wearer could not fall asleep. Dropping one’s head forward could mean the chin or the chest was pierced with the two-pronged fork. Heretics were executed in often gruesome methods. This was done to warn off people from being heretics of the religion.
“Land of the free” or land of the muzzlers of speech?
Simon Sheppard and Stephen Whittle, the publishers of the cartoon “Tales of the Holohoax” that landed them in jail. Simon Sheppard’s application for asylum on the grounds of free speech was rejected by the US court. The US Government treated him like a criminal as soon as he landed in the US seeking political asylum and he was flown back to Britain, where he was prosecuted and jailed for publishing the satirical cartoon. Despite the comical nature of the drawings, the cartoon addresses serious themes and shows the author has researched the subject matter extensively.
The governments should not prevent people from exploring the event called the Holocaust. Governments who do this must rescind the laws that prevent the right of people to examine the history of this period and make up their own minds about the events of that time.
Analysis of the work camps run by the Germans to house the political prisoners, using the scientific technique, to increase knowledge of what happened during the war, and open discussion about the “Holocaust” is prosemitic and progentile.
Stopping this is totalitarian and smears the Jews as a people as being intolerant of free speech and working in collusion to subvert the truth about events that are part of their history, and turns the “Holocaust” into a religion.
Alongside the “religion” of the Holocaust resides the “religion” of political correctness. Like the religionists of the Holocaust “cult”, the religionists of the political correctness “cult” seek to suppress and silence the voice of heretics, and even criminalize their speech.
Free speech heros
As science comes to the fore more and more in today’s Scientific Age, it is not so easy to dismiss the findings of Holocaust Revisionists as mere “antisemitism”. Indeed, labeling the work of these researchers, including that of scientists, as the product of antisemitism actually feeds antisemitism itself. In such labeling is the presumption that all Jews are in agreement that the so-called Holocaust happened, which is not the case.
Furthermore, as people see the harassment and persecution of and the denouncements made against the Holocaust revisionists, and the blind refusal of many in the Jewish community to even look at the research and let it be widely circulated among the people, and the attempts by Jewish representatives to suppress the research and the reporting of it and criminalize the dissemination of the information about the so-called Holocaust, the people who make up the general public may be drawn to accepting the antisemitic idea that not only do Jews all think the same, but that they collude with each other secretly to attack those who threaten their power, and use slander, mob tactics, undue influence in legal, media and political institutions, and propaganda to do so.
Lastly, some may suppress speech of Holocaust revisionists with the reasoning that allowing the speech to be heard may give support to “fascists” who want to “persecute” Jews all over again, like they did in World War II, such as putting them in concentration camps and gassing them. This is the position of the “Never Again” group.
However, this argument is circular. The “fascists” never gassed people in shower rooms in concentration camps. The total that died in camps numbered around 200,000 and this number not only included Jews, but other groups of people, other ethnicities and other nationalities.
It is specious to claim that suppression and prosecution of speech is necessary to prevent some atrocity that was claimed to have happened in the past when the veracity of the claims of the people who say this atrocity happened has not been established.
In fact, suppression of speech of the people who call into question parts or the whole of the Holocaust can produce a real atrocity. In the course of the Holocaust religious mania, a nation has been slandered, the people have been vilified, and their rights have been trampled on.
This made-up atrocity has been used politically to victimize another group of people, who are wholly uninvolved in events that happened half-a-globe away, and whose land has been seized to create a homeland for the ‘victims’ of a fake atrocity.
Not lying about the internment camps that housed the Japanese-Americans during World War II does not endanger anyone. It does not mean that the Japanese-Americans will be victims of persecution again. It does not mean that they will be interned again if a war breaks out between Japan and America again. There is no need to create atrocity stories in order to prevent the spectacle of internment in camps occurring again.
Similarly, telling the truth about the German internment camps does not endanger Jews if a war breaks out again between Germany and another nation.
The internment of Jews in the camps and their humane treatment in the camps by the Germans, who instituted life-saving measures in the camps to protect the well-being of camp inmates, such as building delousing gas chambers, is unrelated to the prevention of atrocities in future wars.
However, the insistence on exceptionalism, separatist attitudes, collusion of certain Jewish groups in suppressing free speech, the spreading of the myth that “all Jews think alike” (a myth that is spread by many Jews themselves, especially with their frequent abuse of the label “antisemite”), and that all Jews must act in concert together on all issues––behaviors that are on display with regards to the so-called Holocaust, does give rise to antisemitism, and a sentiment that Jews must be excluded from a gentile society.
History is written by the victors
Which countries make Holocaust revisionism a crime?
Is the Holocaust being used as a shield to cover-up the crimes committed by Jewish people during the war?
Can so-called victims be the aggressors? Things are rarely black and white. Two sides in a conflict can be both victims and aggressors. No one comes out as completely clean in a conflict.
With the passage of time, people in general become more emotionally divorced from the events of World War II, and are able to view history with a more dispassionate eye.
Researchers are constantly unearthing new information about World War II. In particular, evidence is being discovered that Jews as an ethnic group were also the aggressors as well as the victims of World War II, and the cruelty of Jewish aggressors rivaled the worst abusers of human rights of that period, as the following account shows.
“Latvia: Year of Horror”: Atrocities committed by Soviets in Latvia
This book, also called “The Ghastly Year” or “Horrible Year” (“Baigais Gads”), was written by Paula Kovalevskis, Oskars Noritis and Mikelis Goppers, Editors. It was first published in Riga, Latvia by Zelta Abele Publisher in 1942. It is about the year 1940 when the Soviets arrived in Latvia. The photos document the events that followed.
“The Horrible Year”: http://www.latvietis.lv/BaigaisGads/BG/eng/Lapas17_19.htm
Warning: The photos in the links are distressing. There are pictures of torture and disfigurement.
Left: The hallway lined with cells of the KGB center in Riga, Latvia. Center: A solitary cell, one of the methods of torture. In such a cell it is impossible to stretch nor to sleep. Those arrested were first made exhausted in order to reduce their strength and resistance ability during questioning. Right: The shooting gallery room of the KGB center. Here much care was taken into the design of the room. The walls were covered with wood so that the bullets did not ruin the walls, and the doors were covered with soft paneling – its well-known that wood muffles sound. The floors were covered with cement plates so that blood could be more easily washed off. (Photos: Baigais Gads – “The Horrible Year”)
Left: The shooting gallery. They were covered with special coated cloth to protect the walls from blood splashes. Right: The blood ran away through a drain in the corner of the shooting gallery. After the horror job was committed, the room was rinsed for the next time. In this way, 240 bullets were later found in a groove surrounding the drain. How many bullets were rinsed down the drain? (Photos: Baigais Gads – “The Horrible Year”)
Left: Three bodies in the cellar. All were members of one family. Their crime was hanging a piece of white cloth in front of their apartment. The justification for the death penalty was they were giving signals to the German army. As the German army drew closer to Riga the terror of Bolsheviks became indescribable. Right: A pile of corpses in a room in the cellar of Liepaja Militia, where a hand grenade was thrown in first, and then those remaining alive were shot. (Photos: The Ghastly Year “Baigais Gads”)

Left: Liberated from the bloody yoke on July 1941, the earth revealed its secret. The facts which the Bolsheviks were very carefully trying to hide behind barred windows, barbed wires, in cellars and in their minds were uncovered. Right: Corpses line the courtyard of Riga Central Prison. In this manner, on June 28, 1941, during the final hours of their power, as the German army approached Latvia, the Bolsheviks massacred the people locked up in the prisons. (Photos: “The Horrible Year”)
Left: Riga Central Prison. The layer of earth that covered the prisoners shot by Bolsheviks was just a couple feet thick. The bodies were lying on the top of another, thrown into the pit in messy piles. Right: Within the surroundings of Riga were found numerous pits with victims of shooting by the Bolsheviks. Each of them contained 10 – 30 corpses or more. (Photos are from Baigais Gads “The Horrible Year”)
Civilians murdered in Jelgava. Prior to shooting they were tortured then thrown into the garbage. (Photos from Baigais Gads “The Horrible Year”)
Between 1940 to 1941, after the arrival of the Soviets in Latvia and the installation of the Soviet government in Latvia, 1,355 people were murdered, among them 18 children and 102 women.
In total, 34,250 people were either banished (driven away into exile), went missing or were murdered.
These kinds of atrocities committed by people of Jewish ethnicity are rarely talked about in the mainstream media.
It is only with the decentralization of information dissemination that became possible with the invention of the internet, that these events are coming to be known among the general population.

THE BALANCE SHEET OF THE GHASTLY YEAR
Everything that the Latvian people and state received from the Bolshevik
ARRESTED … BANISHED … MURDERED … MISSING …
Occupation of Latvia on two occasions: 1940-1941 and 1944-1990
The brutality of First Soviet occupation (1940-1941) was such that it has been named the “Year of Terror“. All Latvian property was nationalized. Some 35000 were arrested, murdered or expelled to inhospitably cold Siberia – most never to return. 1% of all Latvians (15000) were expelled to their deaths in Siberia in a single night of June 14, 1941 alone.
