"It is no exaggeration when I say that the majority of all Auschwitz propaganda, which was spread at that time all over the world, was written by ourselves in the camp...We carried out this propaganda for the world public until our very last day of presence in Auschwitz."
This is a significant revelation needing further discussion.
Agreed, what was the "propaganda" Baum spoke of? We cannot discuss what he said, without knowing what he said, despite many deniers thinking it is possible to make decisions on witness testimony they have never read.
Extracts from various wiki entries about this man.
On December 4, 1935, Baum was arrested together with Honecker and Edwin Lautenbach. Baum spent 18 months in custody in Plötzensee. He was then sentenced to 13 years in prison for treason. From 1937 to 1943, Baum was imprisoned in Brandenburg-Görden Prison and then transferred to Auschwitz. At Auschwitz he became head of the "combat group".
Kampfgruppe Auschwitz was founded in 1943. In 1944, together with the Polish Underground State, the Kampfgruppe set up an overall Auschwitz Military Council to coordinate resistance. The majority of members of the Group were communists, socialists, captured Polish and Soviet partisans, members of anti-Nazi resistance movements, and former members of International Brigades. The members of the Kampfgruppe were from Austria, Poland, France, Germany, Yugoslavia, Czechoslovakia and the Soviet Union. Among them were also many Jews.
If there was ever a case for a jew to be "executed" it should have been this man. The camp Gestapo must have been aware of this mans subversive nature. Yet he survived the camp and the war when so many other jews who committed no crime were gassed.
Three months after the end of the war, on July 31, 1945, this same Bruno Baum boasted as follows in an article entitled “We Were Radioing From Hell,” published in the German newspaper Deutsche Volkszeitung¸ the central organ of the German Communist Party at that time:
“All the propaganda that now began to circulate about Auschwitz in foreign countries originated with us, assisted by our Polish comrades.”
In his 1949 book Widerstand in Auschwitz (Resistance in Auschwitz), he stated:
“I believe it is no exaggeration if I say that the biggest part of Auschwitz propaganda, which was spread in the world around that time, has been written by us in the camp... We spread this propaganda to the public at large until the very last day of our stay in Auschwitz.
In a later edition of the book, this was changed to more politically correct statements.
In his early post-war statements, Baum also stated that the SS improved the conditions in the camp to such an extant that “Auschwitz became a model camp in the end.”
On February 29, 1944 the British Ministry of Information issued a letter to the British Broadcasting Company (BBC) along with high-ranking members of the British clergy urging these groups to cooperate with an orchestrated propaganda campaign designed to distract the British and American public from the murderous acts committed by the approaching Russian Bolshevik army by accusing the Germans of far more monstrous crimes against humanity:
I am directed by the Ministry to send you the following circular letter:
It is often the duty of the good citizens and of the pious Christians to turn a blind eye on the peculiarities of those associated with us.
But the time comes when such peculiarities, while still denied in public, must be taken into account when action by us is called for.
We know the methods of rule employed by the Bolshevik dictator in Russia [Stalin] itself from, for example, the writing and speeches of the Prime Minister himself during the last twenty years. We know how the Red Army behaved in Poland in 1920 and in Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Galicia and Bessarabia only recently.
We must, therefore, take into account how the Red Army will certainly behave when it overruns Central Europe. Unless precautions are taken, the obviously inevitable horrors which will result will throw an undue strain on public opinion in this country.
We cannot reform the Bolsheviks but we can do our best to save them — and ourselves — from the consequences of their acts. The disclosures of the past quarter of a century will render mere denials unconvincing. The only alternative to denial is to distract public attention from the whole subject.
Experience has shown that the best distraction is atrocity propaganda directed against the enemy. Unfortunately the public is no longer so susceptible as in the days of the “Corpse Factory,” and the “Mutilated Belgian Babies,” and the “Crucified Canadians.”
Your cooperation is therefore earnestly sought to distract public attention from the doings of the Red Army by your wholehearted support of various charges against the Germans and Japanese which have been and will be put into circulation by the Ministry.
Your expression of belief in such may convince others.
I am, Sir, Your obedient servant,
(signed) H. HEWET, ASSISTANT SECRETARY
The Ministry can enter into no correspondence of any kind with regard to this communication which should only be disclosed to responsible persons.
Essentially, this letter demands that the BBC and British churches enter into a conspiracy to falsely accuse the Germans of heinous wartime atrocities and ‘crimes against humanity’ in order to protect the public reputation of their Allies, the blood-thirsty ‘Russian’ Bolsheviks (many of whom were indeed ethnic Jews) as they raped, plundered, and murdered their way west across Europe during the German retreat.
The letter proves the ‘Holocaust’ propaganda campaign was planned long before the war ended, and certainly long before the Allies opened the concentration camps and saw the alleged ‘evidence’ of German ‘atrocities’.
Victor Cavendish-Bentick, the Head of British Psychological Warfare Executive (Propaganda), in a handwritten note, written on Aug 27th, 1943, confirmed that the alleged mass murder of Jews in the so-called ‘death camps’ was a psy-op when he wrote:
“We have had a good run for our money with this gas chamber story we have been putting about, but don’t we run the risk eventually we are going to be found out and when we are found out the collapse of that lie is going to bring the whole of our psychological warfare down with it? So isn’t it rather time now to let it drift off by itself and concentrate on other lines that we are running.” [Public Record Office Document F0371/34551 revealed by Stephen Mitford Goodson, Inside the South African Reserve Bank]
And right after the war, in his 1949 memoir, Bruno Baum, the jewish-communist President of East Germany and former inmate at Auschwitz, admitted that Jews in the concentration camps had indeed made up the war crimes that they had accused the ‘Nazis’ of:
“It is no exaggeration when I say that the majority of all Auschwitz propaganda, which was spread at that time all over the world, was written by ourselves in the camp. We carried out this propaganda [for] the world public until our very last day of presence in Auschwitz.”
This psy-op by the orwellian British Ministry of Information was so successful that 75 years later, the vast majority of the public still believes this wartime atrocity propaganda to be historical truth.
People can even be shown these three above-mentioned independent witnesses that confirm the ‘Holocaust’ stories are 100% fiction, and yet most will still insist on believing that they are true.
In part because it’s far easier to convince someone of a lie that it is to convince someone that they’ve been lied to.
And people are terrified to confront the cold stark truth that the ‘innocent’ Jews intentionally fabricated the blood libel of the ‘Holocaust’ against the German people — and White European Christians in general — in order to cover up their own very real and documented crimes against humanity committed by their fellow jewish Bolsheviks — a death toll in excess of 60 million.
And Hitler’s great crime was trying to save Europe from these Bolshevik hordes.
But the Jews live in constant fear that if this truth ever spreads to the general public, there will be a great day of reckoning for them.
And they know they can’t keep this truth hidden indefinitely — thanks to the free internet, millions more are waking up with each passing year.
But they’ve invested far too much in the Holocaust ‘get out of jail free card’ to let it drop as they should; instead they are doubling down, investing billions in Holocaust indoctrination programs in order to silence their critics.
Yet the younger, computer-savvy generations are far more skeptical — the Jews are losing the propaganda battle.
And the harder they fight ‘antisemitism’ with Holocaust ‘education’, the more ‘antisemtism they create.
Note: the best documentary film to demonstrate the homicidal depravity of the Bolshevik Army as it swept across eastern and central Europe on its way into Germany is Thomas Goodrich’s Hellstorm: The Death of Nazi Germany, which can be viewed here.

Perhaps you could be kind enough to translate it for us. Here is the German version.
