Can Manstein kindly give us the date of Jost's letter to him?
I received Archivist Manager U. Jost response to my inquiry 11/27/2006
So I guess that has now been answered!Amongst all this meticulous, careful data, one wonders whether a single file anywhere records a death due to cyanide poisoning...?
Atigun wrote:"As a rule, other causes of death were given for inmates..." Since it is alleged that thousands were gassed in a single day, what was the source for these "other causes"? Did the Germans have a list of various fatal diseases and maladies that they chose from? Was it a rotating list that just repeated endlessly? It just seems curious to me that, if faced with a mountain of dead bodies, how one would go about assigning various causes of death on a totally random basis. I'm not presenting this as evidence, it just seems truly odd, even bizarre.
To whom it may concern:
It has come to my attention that the documents at Bad Arolsen have now been opened to researchers.
Do any forensic documents exist within the Archive which would indicate the cause of prisoners' deaths to have been due to gas poisoning? If such is the case how can one obtain photo copies of the same.
