Murders “en masse”

Another example of the “electrocution” rumour.

Text reads:

ONE-HALF TO BE KILLED THIS YEAR

Himmler, after a visit to Warsaw, ordered that one-half of the Polish Jews were to be killed in one year. In pursuance of this order deportations were carried out at the rate of ten thousand a day. Places of execution were organised at Chelm and Belzec, where murders “en masse” are carried out by means of electrocution and lethal gas. Early this month the State Department in Washington gave figures showing that the number of Jewish victims deported or “perished” since 1939 in Axis-controlled Europe had reached the appalling total of 2,000,000, and that 5,000,000 were in danger of extermination

  1. Belzec is an interesting case. Supposedly this “death” camp was in operation for only 13 months (1942 – 1943), yet we read of estimates of from 600,000 up to 3,000,000 people were killed there. The very wide range of estimates is a red flag, and we should be skeptical. Whereas, the other alleged extermination camps have seen their death figures fall since the end of communism in Poland, Belzec’s numbers have risen. (The official placue at Auschwitz-Birkenau now reads one million, and not the previous 4 million deaths. The same situation is true for the numbers for Treblinka and Maidanek.) Perhaps, Belzec is the “plug” number to get to the “Six million”. In Nora Levin’s 1968 tome, The Holocaust – The Destruction of European Jewry, the figure given for Belzec was 500,000 or 600,000, with no mention of upwards to 3 million. How does one account for such a range – 600,000 to 3 million?! There was only one known “survivor” of Belzec, Rudolph Reder.

      1. Yes, “dancing” on an electrified metal plate is alleged to have been used at Belzec. Electrocution is not claimed elsewhere, except if any camp inmates ran into electrified barbed wire fencing to kill themselves.
