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

Mad Dogs and Polish Murders

It was worse than we thought. The Nazis had specially trained dogs to rip apart men women and children. The bodies fed into the crematorium produced the electricity to murder more people and the waterworks were designed to drown people. I’m surmising that the gas used was the slow release Zyklon B.

I have seen today a concentration camp here covering an area of 15 miles, which resembles a huge factory, with chimneys, shops, roads, electricity, waterworks and barracks,’’ says the Exchange Telegraph Co. correspondent.
“It was factory—a factory of death, its shops were gas chambers, the chimneys belonged to the crematorium where corpses were burned, and the power was used for murdering by electricity and the water for drowning.
“Along the roads men, women and children were driven and beaten to death, while 200 dogs were trsined to participate In mass murder by tearing the victims to pieces.

 

Into the valley rode the six million

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”.

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

No April Fools

No it’s no April Fools joke. Apparently the Germans used Jews as horses according to this article. It’s all true you’ve heard from the horse’s mouth.

Doomed Jews As Horses

WHEN all the Jews of Borisov ‘ were underground. 8.000 more were taken to the town from other areas and on their way to the death-place, harnessed to coaches place of horses, and ” forced to haul their executioners to the execution ground.” Soon after, all the Nazi newspapers in White Russia cynically reported: “The Jewish problem in White Russia is now solved. But there are still 5.000.000 Jews left alive in the United States
