Belsen Was A Gas

Belsen Gas Chambers

Yorkshire Evening Post -Tuesday 13th November 1945

Just a bit of fake news from 1945. I’ve found several articles alluding to gas chambers in Belsen. Most of the stories carry the suggestion of Belsen gas chambers in the heading but then the articles only refer to the alleged gas chambers at Auschwitz. It is easy to see how in the minds of the general public the belief that every German concentration camp had a gas chamber came about. But hey, fake news has never hurt anybody has it?

Here’s a Wikipedia quote on Belsen (I know Wikipedia is an untrustworthy source but people often refer to it)

wiki belsen

 

Someone even wrote a song about it

In response to a comment below here are more examples of allusions to Belsen and gas

Hartlepool Northern Daily Mail - Thursday 21 belsen gas

There’s plenty of other examples but I’m sure you’ll get my drift. This is misinformation and black propaganda popularised by the media of the time.

Majdanek Madness

Belfast News-Letter – Monday 04 December 1944

1,500,000 victims and specially trained Nazi dogs to drag children to the crematorium, wow if we didn’t know better one could be forgiven for thinking that someone might have made a lot of this holocaust stuff up.

Birmingham Mail – Wednesday 05 September 1945 

2,000,000 put to death by the Nazis at Majdanek.

Here is the official Majdanek website’s tally

80,000??? big difference there. Perhaps people have been plucking figures from thin air?

Overtones of Hansel and Gretel here, children lured to their deaths and then put into ovens.

Man survives eight Nazi Death camps? 

They can’t have been very efficient death camps then. Then again the Germans are renowned for clumsiness and disorganisation. 

The article has all the usual canards. 

Flames from chimneys 

Quote 

“We could see from a distance that there were flames coming out from four chimneys. I didn’t realise that this was the crematorium.”

Water instead of gas

Quote 

He remembers the infamous shower rooms, and the prisoners who were sent there.

“They put us into a block. All of us, one particular large block. Then the following morning, a selection of that block went into the shower room,” he said.

“We went to the shower room. It’s the same shower room that other people went in and the gas came in. But we got the water that came down and we washed ourselves.”

Just as an addendum to a comment below here is Buchenwald described as a “death camp” 

Monday 23rd April 1945 Aberdeen Press and Journal 

A Giant with Feet of CLAY

At 2.00 Clay Higgins repeats the claim that 700 people could be squeezed into that room, he then proceeds to explain that slave labour cremated the bodies in those six tiny ovens. I wonder approximately how long would that take to dispose of the corpses?

4,000,000 Jews @ Auschwitz 

Auschwitz 4,000,000 Jews

Liverpool Echo –Friday 21 September 1945

It’s that hoary old chestnut again. In 1945 4,000,000 Jews reported to have been murdered in Auschwitz compared to todays “official” figure of 1.5 million. The 4,000,000 figure was counted as part of the totemic 6,000,000 figure back then so why is there not a corresponding drop to reflect this decrease? 

Look it’s all true, holocaust survivors testimony is sacrosanct and can’t be questioned. There was even a prisoner that kept records to prove it. Somebody must be lying somewhere then. 

Undeniable Evidence 

Treblinka steam chambers

The Scotsman 15th December 1945 

More from the Nuremburg show trials. This article describes the mechanical methods of mass murder “gas and steam chambers as well as electric current” were used to slaughter Jews. Hmmm they don’t teach at school about steam and electricity being used even though they hold the Nuremburg trials as the pinnacle of justice and cannot be brought into question. 

They even mention the elusive gas vans. How many of those were ever found after the war?……. Oh that would be none
