Now ya see it. Now ya don’t!
We seem to have a little contradiction here. In 1949 this newspaper reported about the “gas chamber” at Dachau. Now today, official wisdom says there was no gas chamber at Dachau. Who is right?
Must Take a Shower
Now, at Dachau, they live hemmed in by instruments of horror. Their ramshackle barracks sprawl under the shadow cast by a towering brick chimney rising from a low concrete building—the camp crematorium, near to which an engraved bronze plaque starkly states: This area is being retained as a shrine to the 238,000 individuals who were cremated here.” Strolls take the Sudeten refugees past other macabre landmarks ” hanging trees ” with neatly-looped nooses, gallows, and the pistol range where Hitler’s infamous SS guards practised marksmanship on living targets. By contrast the crematorium seems almost merciful. In logical one, two, three sequence is divided into shower room, gas chamber, and furnace room. At Nuremberg an SS officer testified, “There was never any trouble in the gas chambers. We just explained to the Jews that, after the long train ride, they were dirty and must take a shower.” The victims, their pores opened by the hot steam, were then herded into the gas chamber, there be exterminated and finally passed on to the crematorium.
Superstition Among Villagers
Gas jets still protrude like horns from the low ceiling of the gas chamber. In the long furnace room are four furnaces, ‘ two in the centre and one on each side, each big enough to hold two bodies at once. Trays shaped to fit the contours of the, body still gape from each furnace opening. Clustered on a tree-lined hill top a few miles from the former concentration camp are the pleasant, white-painted cottages of Dachau village. The villagers look prosperous in their red-trimmed green Bavarian jackets. lederhosen, and green hats. But among them a superstition is growing. “The essences of death,” they whisper,” which once puffed from the crematorium’s smoke stack and hung over the countryside have settled like a poisonous gas on Dachau moor. “It’s the gas,” a villager may mutter when he breaks out in a rash
Now in comparison, the USHMM says there is no evidence of this gas chamber being used to kill people. Who is right?
Or is the more likely explanation that the gas chamber claim was just part of war time propaganda that could not be backed up by hard evidence and was quietly dropped. Subsequently the gas chamber myth was transported in cattle cars to the east.
The gallows and firing range story continues.
Also note that the article claims 238,000 were cremated at Dachau yet that bastion of truth and facts claims
Over the 12 years of use as a concentration camp, the Dachau administration recorded the intake of 206,206 prisoners and deaths of 31,951. Crematoria were constructed to dispose of the deceased. Visitors may now walk through the buildings and view the ovens used to cremate bodies, which hid the evidence of many deaths. It is claimed that in 1942, more than 3,166 prisoners in weakened condition were transported to Hartheim Castle near Linz, and were executed by poison gas because they were deemed unfit. Between January and April 1945 11,560 detainees died at KZ Dachau according to a U.S. Army report of 1945, though the Dachau administration registered 12,596 deaths from typhus at the camp over the same period
Therefore in that logic more people were cremated than had actually passed through the prison camp. Holocaust logic, questioning the holocaust can get you sent to prison in some countries. Questioning the holocaust can ruin your livelihood and job prospects in most countries.
There is something rotten in the sate of Denmark.
