Mattogno only talks about Einsatzgruppe B in this paragraph exactly because he thinks that the only gas vans in German documents are those of Einsatzgruppe B (or what he falsely considers as this paramilitary unit). That's exactly the problem here, and not my misunderstanding. Read the section again (it's not that long, so please really do).
"For 1942, from the very few documents adduced by orthodox Holocaust historiography, PS-501 and the Activity and Situation Report of Einsatzgruppe B for the time period 16 to 28 February 1942, dated 1 March 1942, supposing that they are authentic and have been interpreted correctly, the following distribution may be deduced:"
Nowhere does he say he limits himself to Einsatzgruppe B and is excluding other units.
"In the best of cases, the documents attest to 2 Diamond “gas vans” and 4 Saurer: 6 “gas vans” out of at least 26. There is no information at all about the remaining 20 vehicles. The question greatly concerns orthodox Holocaust historians, who make aggressive use of trial testimony without any objective confirmation in attempts to supply even the semblance of an answer....
The bold part only makes sense if he talks about all gas vans - irrespective of unit. Only if Mattogno means to say those 6 gas vans are the only mentioned in any German document in the best of cases, it makes sense to relate this to 26 (allegedly in total) and state "There is no information at all about the remaining 20 vehicles". Also, only in this case it makes any sense to say that the question of the remaining vehicles (allegedly not mentioned in the German documents) "greatly concerns orthodox Holocaust historians, who make aggressive use of trial testimony without any objective confirmation in attempts to supply even the semblance of an answer".
Mattogno is not saying that 26 gas vans belonged to Einsatzgruppe B. You are the one misreading things. Look at the ENTIRETY of page 309. He keeps bringing up other Einsatzgruppen on the page. You can't flip flop and claim that the 26 refers to only Einsatzgruppe B and then in the next claim that the entire section is talking about all the Einsatzgruppen
You have misunderstood me. I said "If your reading were right
, he would say that Einsatzgruppe B is claimed to have had some 26 gas vans...". Since your reading is wrong, he did no claim about 26 gas vans of Einsatzgruppe B. In fact, my argument is exactly that because no sane person would talk about 26 gas vans of Einsatzgruppe B (no even Mattogno), your reading of him that he only referred about Einsatzgruppe B in this paragraph has to be wrong.
I see nothing in there about 20 belonging to only Einsatzgruppe B. Much less 26. I bet if I ask Rudolf to ask Mattogno, I will be told that Mattogno is NOT saying that Einsatzgruppe B have/had 20 or 26 vans to themselves alone.
Yes, they would tell this. And they are right. Because Mattogno talks about the gas vans of all Einsatzgruppen here, as I say, and not only about Einsatzgruppe B, as you assume. They will tell you that my understanding is correct. Please ask them!
