Birmingham Daily Post-Monday 21 December 1942
Here is another example of the Holocaust by “Electrocution” story.
In the meantime, special Extermination Commando had been organised and trained in murder beforehand in Germany, The methods employed in deporting from the ghetto all who survive the murders and shootings in the streets exceed imagination. In particular, children, old people and those too weak for work are murdered. News is available that places of execution have been organised where those who survive the shootings are murdered en masse by means of electrocution and lethal gas. No fewer than 85,000 of the 86,000 Jews who were living in Jugoslavia when that country was attacked have been slaughtered, and the remaining thousand are interned. The Jews of Croatia have been annihilated by a special section of the Fascist Guards, which ceased to function on June 15 last year, having completed its task. In Serbia, the Jews were dealt with by a special section of the Gestapo. In February-this year, this organisation carried out its last task by exterminating by lethal gas the few score remaining Jewish women and children kept in a camp. Actual extermination of the Jews in Belgium was not decided upon until May last, and deportation began in July, when convoys were sent to unknown destinations, probably Silesia. According to a German newspaper, 25,000 of the 52,000 Jews living in Belgium in 1941 had been accounted for in this way up to the end of November, 1942. The statistics are German. Up to the end of October, more than 72,000 Jews left Bohemia and Moravia and 65,000 left Slovakia for the Polish ghettoes—men. women and children being treated alike. A commission was set up at the Slovak Ministry of the Interior on November 10 to consider the final solution of the Jewish problem—the deportation of the remaining 20,000.
I wonder how the Germans responded to these accusations of mass murder as I assume they would have access and knowledge to foreign media reports?
