Six Million Jews victims of German terror
El Paso herald., April 07, 1919, HOME EDITION, Page 8

Yes I know it is well-trodden turf but it would be remiss of me not to post this fine example of the Six Million Jews meme from 1919

“Do You Know of a Single
Gentile Charity Which Is
Not Largely and Willingly
Contributed to By. People
of the Jewish Faith?”
George Ade
One of America’s most gifted writers brings home
to every Gentile a statement of facts and conditions
that many of them have been overlooking. Take
time to read what Mr. Ade says below
“In any campaign to feed the hungry or lift up the stricken or
shelter the homeless it is taken for granted, as a matter of course,
that the Jews will do their full share and then oversubscribe a little.
They are accustomed to do things in a big way and are not dismayed by ordinary tasks.
“Now they are up against an extraordinary task; an under
taking, vast in proportions, hedged in by appalling handicaps. The
American Jewish Relief Committee is endeavoring to save from
starvation six million Jews who are the helpless victims of the German Terror.
“Between the committee in New York City and the unfortunate refugees or penned-in prisoners that they are trying to help, are
open seas and devastated provinces.

6,000,000 Jews 1879

6,000,000 Jews 1879
Swindon Advertiser and North Wilts Chronicle – Saturday 18 January 1879

Curiouser and curiouser! Here’s an article from 1879 that seems to carry some common themes. 6,000,000 Jews, Palestine, Rothschild and prophecy. The writer appears to be dismissing a suggestion put forward by another writer about Jews buying up land in Palestine, displacing the existing population and creating a new society therein. Obviously such an absurd proposal could never come to pass!!!

A writer in the Standard has a short and ready way of getting rid the Turkish difficulty. If the Porte will only put its pride in its pocket, it may have £60,000.000 or the asking, and easily buy out and compound with other creditors! The plan this, there are 6.000,000 of Jews in the world, and it is a moderate computation that they are good for a £10 a head. Sixty millions will thus buy up the fee simple of Palestine, and the return the Jews and the literal fulfilment prophesy may be effected by financial arrangement. The writer, however, forgets the difficulties which make such a scheme more than impracticable. To begin with, how are we to expropriate the existing inhabitants? There are. Arabs. Syrians, and Christians of all nationalities already in occupation of much of the land . and even if they were bought out—which is an absurd proposal—what kind of society and what institutions would these returned Jews set up in the place of the Sultan’s rule? Would they elect a Rothschild President and a Montefaire as Chancellor of the Exchequer. The proposal is worthy of the author of “Tancred.”

Six Million Jews Leitmotif

Six Million Jews

Irish Independent – Friday 24 February 1905

Well, well we have it all here. One could almost believe some of the conspiracy theorists judging by the commentary in this article…… Financial, journalistic??? and backbone of “Russian Socialism” (I think they later called it communism but I’ll have to fact check that). I think there could be a theme running here.

organisation in Germany, Franco, and Austria. The Jews have good cause to hate Russian rule, and it is from this race in its financial, journalistic, and other strongholds in Berlin, Vienna, Paris, and London that the Tsar’s Government has to meet its strongest and most resourceful foes. There are upwards of six million Jews in Russia. They are rightly discontented at the exceptional laws in operation against them. They are the backbone of what is termed Russian “Socialism,” and until Russian rulers learn the wisdom of justice in the treatment of alien races under their dominion, the Jews of Russia and of the world will continue to be the most vigilant and aggressive opponents of Russian I government_ and of its credit and policy, line the ranks of its many assailants

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. 

And So It Begins

Six million Jews 1921

JEWS IN PERIL

SIX MILLIONS FACING

MASSACRE

PARIS, Wednesday.

A Berlin message says that in Russia six million Jews are facing extermination by massacre as famine spreads a counter-revolutionary movement and the control of the Soviet wanes, according to Dr, Joseph Kreinin, the well-known Jewish social worker and president of the Russian Joint Board of Jews’ Societies, who has just arrived in Berlin after escaping from Moscow. He states, that in Ukraine several villages have been burned and scores killed, seventy persons being slaughtered in one village alone. Dr. Kreinin is now on route to America, where he plans to hold series of meetings.

Six Million Jews 1943
Western Morning News – Friday 05 February 1943

So it’s in the middle of the war and the “six million Jews” appears yet again. At that time they are in a state of peril and not yet exterminated. I believe the six million figure is purely a symbolic number and not based on any accurate population figures. I’ve found the phrase in the newspaper archives going back to around 1825. It’s seems to have been repeated through history parrot fashion as the Jewish population figure for various countries eventually morphing into the number of Jews exterminated in the “holocaust”.

Text reads:

If Hitler consents to allow Jews to get away it will certainly not be for humanitarian reasons. He will try to get Fifth Columnists among them. He would welcome any opportunity to cause embarrassments to us with the Arabs, and he would seize any opportunity of trying to create or stimulate anti- Semitic feeling.

All these represent dangers to be faced in any scheme, and clearly nothing can be done except by international agreement. We can neither accommodate six million Jews here nor dictate the attitude of other Governments. These are facts to be borne in mind when the Government is criticized for moving too slowly.

Oh look, here’s the current population estimate of Israel. How odd

Notice the US figure hovers around six million too

Notice the US population figure hovers around six million too. Hmmm must just be a coincidence…
