Re: samuel Untermeyer - origins of a myth, call for a war!

A reasonable person would take this as another demonstration of how insane and paranoid Hitler was, that he could so reverse persecutor and persecuted, action and reaction, the powerful and the powerless in Nazi Germany.

Re: Polish Jews

The Polish census of 1931 showed 3.1 million Jews in Poland. Births outweighed deaths and emigration at this time (in the late 1930s, the Jewish birth rate was 20/1000 per year and the death rate 12/1000), leading to a slight population increase. The Jewish population would therefore be around 3.3 m...

Re: Birkenau: examining the currently accepted narrative

So Kramer originally said he didn't know anything about gas chambers, and then when confronted with evidence of his role in the gas chamber at Natzweiler, he admitted to their existence at both Natzweiler and Auschwitz. BT's reaction is not to assume the most obvious, that Kramer was a liar (1st sta...

Re: Birkenau: examining the currently accepted narrative

Don't think, don't question. Just feel the horror and believe the exaggeration and historically out-of-context, self-obsessed tale of personal suffering. Forget that during WW2 there was a war going on. Forget that in that war all parties deliberately interred people and used them as a labour force...

Friedrich “Fritz” Hartjenstein (...) Then he was again tried by the British for hanging a POW who was a member of the Royal Air Force and sentenced to death by firing squad on June 5 of that year. He was then extradited to France, where he was tried for his crimes at Natzweiler and sentenced to dea...

Re: Birkenau: examining the currently accepted narrative

"Scrapbook pages" is a denialist site posing as a serious page for information about the Holocaust. I wouldn't quote it if you're looking for the "currently accepted narrative" among historians. IIRC Birkenau was originally intended as a Soviet POW camp. The idea of using the site as an exterminatio...

Re: How to address Holocaust™-Revisionism in Germany?

Holocaust denial is a complete taboo in mainstream German society. It's quite commendable how denial, Nazi apologism and Antisemitism have been pushed so far to the margins, unlike in countries eg Japan, Turkey, or the USSR. Ordinary Germans will be resistant to giving denial any platform at all, so...

Re: Compare and contrast concentration and internment camps

So the revelation of the above few posts is that German Jews were opposed to the Nazis, and therefore Britain logically concluded that Jewish refugees wouldn't try to help Nazi Germany. Another point is that Britain investigated it's German and Austrian residents as soon as the war started, while Ge...
