Let us look at that claim.Werd wrote:Cremation remains and documents saying Jews were transited to Treblinka are consistent with the revisionist/transportation camp thesis.
Firstly, where all of the witnesses? If Treblinka (which camp, he does not say) was a transit camp, there would be witness evidence. Those transited through the camp are witnesses. Those who worked at the camp are witnesses. But the revisionist thesis does not provide any witnesses to back it up. Why? Because there are none. All of the witness evidence relating to TII, those who were inside the camp, say it was a death camp, not a transit camp. So, revisionism deals with that by just ignoring all of the witnesses and pretending it is fine to have no witness evidence at all.
Secondly, the revisionist thesis avoids quantifying how many cremains there are at the camp. No mention will be made of the two surveys of the camp, both of which found cremated remains and disturbed ground over many acres at the site. If there had just been natural deaths and since some buried bodies were found there, why not just bury the dead, rather than cremate them? That shows straight away that we are not dealing with minimal deaths. If the Nazis had to cremate, which revisionists have suggested they did to stop local water contamination, that means we must be dealing with large numbers of dead.
Thirdly, the documents show that by the end of 1942, 713,555 had arrived at the camp. By its closure in October 1943, it is estimated that c850,000 had arrived. The potential for the number of dead is huge. There are also no documents from any source showing those people left the camp. The documentary evidence trail runs out at TII. That is rather odd for a transit camp thesis. If it was a transit camp sending so many people elsewhere, where are all of those other places and their documents recording arrivals from TII?
The revisionist transit camp thesis involves cherry picking parts of the evidence, ignoring witness evidence in its entirety and it falls down completely due to the lack of transit evidence from TII to anywhere else.
