"Sonderbehandlung Reports" Sold at Auction!

Postby Kladderadatsch » Wed Feb 22, 2012 2:18 am

Well I'll be sonderbehandelt!

I was looking online for photo examples of death certificates from the camps, when I found these three curious documents as part of an auction lot of "Judaica" from Regency Stamps. The items are sold, so their images probably won't stay up on Regency's site for much longer, but I think it's safe to copy them here. After all, if they really are historical documents, then they're in the public domain, and if they're fakes . . . you can't really copyright a forgery, now can you?

Well, of course they're forgeries.

Either that or they're the most important evidence for the equation Sonderbehandlung ["special treatment"] = murder ever found! (And to think, they were sold off for about a hundred bucks each--they didn't even reach their pre-auction estimates . . . )

I'm not completely sure about some of the abbreviations (I'd appreciate help with that), but I'll try a rough translation. (I'll just do the first--they're all more or less the same.)

Kiev, 3rd Oct. 1941

Security Police Ukraine
Section B IV
Num. IV/678

To the
Security Police Sec. A IV
Kiev.

Re.: Jewish sabotage.
Auth.: [?! Authority? Vorg. = Vorgesetzte? help!]: Directive of the Garrison Headquarters Num A.B. 133/41
Att.: [Attachments? Anlg. = Anlage?] 0

Report, that on 1 Oct. 1941, following persons were given special treatment [sonderbehandelt worden sind]:

. . . and then the names. The stamp "Geheim" is short for "Geheimnis," secret. (Just how dumb are the Germans supposed to be?! This is how they keep a secret?)

Anyway, I'd be happy to get any corrections or suggestions about the translation.

Otherwise, I was just curious about what other people here think about them as documents. As I say, they're obviously fakes, because if they were real they'd be headline news ("Documents prove that Nazi 'Special Treatment' meant murder!") instead of being sold off on the sly to suckers on the Internet. But it's the details that interest me.

One thing that stands out, for example, is the way that the capitalization is backwards: the nouns "sabotage" and "partisanen" should be capitalized, and the adjective "jüdisch" (assuming that 'Jüd.' is meant to be an adjective) should not.

Betr.: jüdische Sabotage
Betr.: jüdische Partisanen

But my German is pretty basic. I'm curious to know what more knowledgeable people here think.

Also, what about the "Schreiben des Standortkommandantur Nr. A.B. 133/41" stuff? I'm assuming that it's meant to refer to some "directive" from headquarters, under the authority of which the "Sonderbehandlung" was carried out. Does anyone know of other examples in which the existence of such orders has been alleged? Clearly the forger must have used some such claim as the basis for including that detail.

I'm curious what other people can see in these.

Kladderadatsch,

forgive me but I had to laugh (discreet I promise) when you wrote "they're the most important evidence for the equation Sonderbehandlung ["special treatment"] = murder ever found". As a matter of fact, there are dozens of such documents known to me, even much more explicitly by the way, and I am just an amateur researcher. I can only imagine the grin of a real expert on German SS/police documents if he reads your claim.

Here's an example:

Code: Select all
[Geheimes Staatspolizeiamt]
- II A - (Siegel) Berlin, den 26. September 1939
In der heutigen Referentenbesprechung legte Abteilungsleiter II2 nochmals die
Richtlinien dar, nach denen die sogenannten Kriegsdelikte zu behandeln sind:
2 Die Leitung der Abt. II des Geheimen Staatspolizeiamtes (identisch mit dem Amt
Politische Polizei im Hauptamt Sicherheitspolizei) hatte der Chef der Gestapo, der damalige
SS-Standartenführer Heinrich Müller.

a) S o n d e r b e h a n d l u n g (Exekution):
Sonderbehandlungen werden grundsätzlich bei I I A 3 bearbeitet mit Ausnahme
von Fällen der Sonderbehandlung gegen Geistliche, Theologen und Bibelforscher,
für die I I B4 zuständig ist.
I n der Vorlage an den Reichsführer SS soll n u n nicht etwa der Bericht der Stapo-
(leit)stellen wörtlich verwandt werden, sondern es soll eigener Stil (möglichst Telegrammstil)
zur Anwendung kommen. Der Bericht m u ß enthalten:
Die wirtschaftliche Lage, persönliche Verhältnisse, Sachverhalt, Würdigung.
Es ist ein Vorschlag zu machen, entweder lautend auf Exekution, oder es ist die
Bitte u m Weisung, was geschehen soll, auszusprechen. Darüber hinaus sollen dem
Reichsführer SS auch Fälle vorgelegt werden, die besonders gelagert sind und besonderes
Interesse beanspruchen, ohne daß Sonderbehandlung (Exekution) erforderlich
ist. Hier kann der Zusatz gemacht werden: „Eignet sich nicht zur Sonderbehandlung."
Zur Zuständigkeit von I I A gehören auch Sonderfälle der Hamsterei, in denen es
auch denkbar ist, daß Exekution vorgeschlagen wird.
b) H e i m t ü c k e :
Heimtückefälle sind von verschiedenen Referaten zu bearbeiten, u n d zwar:
V o m R e f e r a t I I A, sobald es sich u m kommunistisch-marxistisch eingestellte
Elemente handelt,
v o m R e f e r a t I I C5 bei sogenannten Reaktionären und politisch farblosen Leuten,
dazu schwarze Front,
v o m R e f e r a t I I B in Fällen, i n denen die katholische Einstellung richtunggebend
ist (aber nicht Fälle, in denen es heißt „Marxist"
und „Katholik", solche Fälle würden bei I I A zu bearbeiten
sein).
Die Statistik über Heimtücke soll nach wie vor bei I I A geführt werden.
c) An die Stapo(leit)stellen sollen von hier aus konkrete Anweisungen nicht gegeben
werden, damit die Stapo(leit)stellen selbst Initiative entwickeln und auch die
Verantwortung tragen. In allen diesen Fällen ist zurückzuschreiben mit dem Bemerken,
daß in eigener Zuständigkeit zu entscheiden ist. Ausgenommen sind natürlich
die u n t e r a) erwähnten Fälle, die für eine Sonderbehandlung in dieser oder
jener Form geeignet sind.
d) Aus der bei POL H ö f e r geführten K a r t e i sind alle diejenigen Fälle herauszusuchen
(Heimtückefälle), die von den betreffenden Referaten i n eigener Zuständigkeit
weiterbearbeitet werden sollen.
e) A b h ö r e n a u s l ä n d i s c h e r S e n d e r:
Bezüglich des Abhörens ausländischer Sender hat I I L 6 auf Sondervortrag entschie-
den, daß die Stapostellen zunächst dem Gestapa diese Fälle melden sollen, damit hier
Erfahrungen gesammelt werden können. Das Verfahren wird also demnach so sein,
daß die Stapostelle entscheidet, ob der Betreffende in Schutzhaft zu nehmen ist oder
nicht. Die Vorgänge betr. Radio-Abhörens sind hier gesondert zu sammeln. Ab
26. 9. hätte jeden Tag Wiedervorlage der gesammelten Fälle zu erfolgen, um festzustellen,
in welchen Fällen Strafantrag durch die Stapostellen zu stellen ist. Entscheidung
erfolgt durch II L.
gez. Heller.

Another one:

Code: Select all
Einsatzbefehl Nr. 20

Betr.: Gesamtübersicht über Sonderbehandlung von Personen

Die Einsatzgruppen und die Kommandeure der Sicherheitspolizei und des SD sowie die Befehlshaber der Sicherheitspolizei und des SD weisen ab 1.7.1942 nach folgender Aufteilung monatlich die Zahl der im Rahmen der sicherheitspolizeilichen Befriedungsaktionen sonderbehandelten Personen nach:

1. Partisanen
2. Kommunisten und Funktionäre
3. Juden
4. Geisteskranke
5. Sonstige reichsfeindliche Elemente

Gesamtzahl:
Bisheriger Stand:
Endgültige Gesamtzahl:

Operation order number 20 of Müller to the Einsatzgruppen of 4 July 1942, from Peter Klein, Die Einsatzgruppen in der besetzten Sowjetunion 1941/42. Die Tätigkeits- und Lageberichte des Chefs der Sicherheitspolizei und des SD

Or another one:

Code: Select all
Das Dorf Borjoska wurde wegen Beherbergung von Räuberbanden durch ungarische Truppen niedergebrannt und die Bevölkerung sonderbehandelt...


http://www.justice.gov.il/mojheb/Eichman/t1412.pdf

Anybody who wants to maintain that Sonderbehandlung was not an euphemism for killing in the SS and police forces does not know a shred about the documents of the time.

The only arguable question is whether Sonderbehandlung meant killing also in certain local context for instance in some files related to Auschwitz concentration camp. Mattogno, as we know, disputes this meaning in his writings, but not very coherent and founded.

In my opinion, the actual answer is twofold. Sonderbehandlung clearly means killing in the most of the documents related to Au, as follows from their context and readily backed up by testimonial evidence (see also the article Mattogno's special treatment of evidence), whereas there is no proper evidence to establish a different meaning. In some case, in the context of construction projects in Auschwitz-Birkenau, the term was apparently deformed to an euphemism for the whole treatment of the "Jewish problem" in Auschwitz, which included but was not limited to killing. But apart from these few cases, the local meaning of Sonderbehandlung in Auschwitz complex fits into the global use within the German paramilitary forces as unjudicial killing.

Here are some more documents with Sonderbehandlung:

Here is what Reinhard Heydrich, Chief of the Reich Main Security Office, and responsible for the "Jewish question" had to say about "Sonderbehandlung" in 1939. On September 20th, 1939, Heydrich sent a telegram to Gestapo regional and subregional headquarters on the "basic principles of internal security during the war." (Remember that Heydrich was assassinated in 1942, long before the Russians or Americans could have tortured him into writing this):

Zur Beseitigung aller Mißverständnisse teile ich folgendes mit:
...ist zu unterscheiden zwischen solchen, die auf dem bisher üblichen Wege erledigt werden können, und solchen, welche einer Sonderbehandlung zugeführt werden müssen. Im letzteren Falle handelt es sich um solche Sachverhalte, die hinsichtlich ihrer Verwerflichkeit, ihrer Gefährlichkeit oder ihrer propagandistischen Auswirkung geeignet sind, ohne Ansehung der Person durch rücksichtloses Vorgehen (nämlich durch Exekution) ausgemerzt zu werden.

[translation]

To clear up all misunderstandings, I inform you of the following:
... a differentiation is to be made between those who can be finished off in the hitherto usual way, and those to whom a special treatment applies. In the latter case, we are dealing with circumstances that because of their degradation, their danger or their propaganda consequences, it is appropriate without regard to the person, to eliminate him through a ruthless procedure (namely by execution).

Source: 1944-PS

On September 26th, 1939, a memo at a staff meeting held at the Reich Security Main Office indicates which sections were to be responsible for handling the "special treatments." Next to the words "special treatment" are written, in parentheses, "execution."

Source: 905-PS

Paragraph A, section III of a memorandum from Heinrich Himmler, dated February 20th, 1942, states: "Special treatment is carried out by hanging."

Source: 3040-PS
Here is Porter about the document: http://www.jrbooksonline.com/cwporter/3040-ps.htm

In a Memorandum of Gestapo Headquarters, 15 June 1944, the following text appears:

In amending my directive of June 20 1944, I request that those people subject to special treatment be sent to a crematorium to be cremated if possible.

Source: TMWC, Vol. IV, p. 1166.
This is a mistaken reference. This volume only has 572 pages. What is the real source of this document?

Special treatment is to be restricted to a minimum

Source: 3012-PS
Porter on the document: http://www.jrbooksonline.com/cwporter/3012-ps.htm

From "USSR Operational Report No. 124," dated October 25th, 1941, page 6: " Due to the grave danger of epidemic, the complete liquidation of Jews from the ghetto in Vitebsk was begun on October 8th, 1941. The number of Jews to whom special treatment is to be applied is around 3,000." The meaning of "special treatment" is clearly spelled out in many such reports from the eastern front.

I think this is 2233-PS, but am not sure.

Here is Porter on the documents:
905 PS and 1944 PS are not in the IMT volumes, which makes me rather
suspicious; 2233 PS was type-set by the Soviets; really we ought to look at
the original; 3012 PS is a facsimile but is, I believe, authentic; while
3040 PS is also type-set.

I am very suspicious of all except 3012 PS which seems logical in the
context of guerrilla warfare. I'll translate it some time. Taken as a
whole, it gives rather a different impression


Also, not Sonderbehandlung, but sonderaktion:
Telex by Karl Bischoff, December 18, 1942:
Sonderaktion der Gestapo bei sämtlichen Zivilarbeitern

Translation: special action by the Gestapo of all civilian workers


My comment:
Special action could refer to anything. It could mean execution, but not one by gassing, because nobody was gassed.

:lol:

Hans, that's all right, I don't mind being laughed at now and then if I'm learning something along the way. And I admit, I'm still pretty naive about these things, being new to the subject. So the way I put it in my post last night probably sounds pretty dumb. Let me rephrase it.

I don't doubt that "special treatment" could be used in the context of discussing executions: that much is obvious. When discussing the different kinds of treatment to be accorded different categories of prisoner, certain categories naturally would be set aside as requiring "special treatment," with "special" here simply meaning "different in a significant way." (In other words, meaning "set aside," without any of the "happy" connotations of the English word special--a special treat! a special surprise!--which are supposed to make the use of the term by the SS so cynical. In that sense, I sometimes think that a better English translation of the term would be "separate handling.")

At any rate, it doesn't surprise me to see the term used in the context of official instructions regarding the treatment of "Kriegsdelikte" and the like. And I have seen similar evidence before.

What did surprise me--and I admit, I may be naive in this--was to see the term used in alleged reports from the field in which an officer declares that "die folgende Personen . . . sonderbehandelt worden sind." Is that in fact the standard expression, as found in previous, authenticated documents of the kind? Are there examples of such documents to be found in the relevant literature?

Thinking about it again, I suppose there must be: you'd have to be a pretty dumb forger to forge something for which no authentic examples are attested. So I may have gotten it entirely wrong in my post last night; I may be the dumb one here.

I'd still be interested, all the same, in seeing authenticated examples in the literature.

In the meantime, I'm also still curious about the specific documents from the Regency auction. Do they seem authentic to you?

Toshiro, thanks for the quotations. As I say to Hans, I'm not surprised to see the term "Sonderbehandlung" in the context of official instructions, though it's good to have your material quoted here. But I still have the same question to you as I have for Hans: do you know of any examples of "execution reports" of the kind here? And do you think that the documents from Regency are authentic?

Looking to learn. Thanks.

No, I don't; first time I saw any are these posted by you.

They could be, I'm not really experienced to say. Even if they are, they're not really that important to begin with.

Documents are not prove that a crime has been committed, it could be construed as intend, but that would still not be evidence. To prove a crime has indeed been committed more is needed.

This “Sonderbehandlung” term is presented by True Believers as evidence, it isn't. In the “Gutachten des Institutes für Zeitgeschichte“(Analysis by the institute for contemporary history), Munich 1958 we read concerning that term:

“Der Ausdruck „Sonderbehandlung“ bedeutete in der nationalsozialistischen Terminologie während des Krieges vielfach soviel wie „Tötung“...“(p.62)
(The term “Sonderbehandlung” was often used to mean something like killing)

A very careful terminology by the Institute, using the words as “vielfach”(frequently, often) and “soviel wie”(as much as). The problem with this is, when did it mean killing, if ever, and when not? How was the person in charge to know what it meant? Thus, it had to be clarified as was done here, courtesy of Hans:

“a) S o n d e r b e h a n d l u n g (Exekution): “

So Hans, please explain to me why the “Nazis” would have bothered with Tarnsprache if in the end it has to be explained, in clear terms, what was meant? This is just too silly.

The term “Exekution” is also problematic.

Hans will come up with "testimonies" by Eichmann and others (Mazuw, Hamann) where they stated the meaning was known to everybody and thus required no explanation.

Also worthy of mention is the letter Richard Korherr wrote to Der Spiegel in 1977:

Der SPIEGEL, Nr. 31, 25. Juli 1977, S. 12 :

DER bekannte, rassisch verfolgte Schriftsteller H. G. Adler, früher in Prag, jetzt in London, hat 1960 im Vorwort zur zweiten Auflage seines außerordentlichen Buches "Theresienstadt 1941--1945" geschrieben: "Es sei auch ausdrücklich festgestellt, daß die Bezeichnung Herrn Dr. Korherrs als 'SS-Statistiker' ... nicht stimmt, da er der SS nie angehörte und für sein Verhalten in den Jahren des Nationalsozialismus rehabilitiert ist."

Der SPIEGEL veröffentlicht leider die Behauptung des englischen Historikers Irving, ich hätte im Frühjahr 1943 auf Himmlers Order die Zahl der Opfer des Judentums berechnet. Tatsächlich wurden diese Angaben vom Reichssicherheitshauptamt (RSHA) fix und fertig samt Text mir geliefert mit der Auflage, keine Zahl und kein Wort ändern zu dürfen.

Die Angabe, ich hätte dabei auch aufgeführt, daß über eine Million Juden in den Lagern des Generalgouvernements und Warthegaus durch Sonderbehandlung gestorben seien, ist ebenfalls unzutreffend. Ich muß gegen das Wort "gestorben" in diesem Zusammenhang protestieren.

Es war gerade das Wort "Sonderbehandlung", das mich zu der telephonischen Rückfrage beim RSHA veranlaßte, was dieses Wort zu bedeuten habe. Ich bekam die Antwort, es handle sich um Juden, die im Bezirk Lublin angesiedelt würden.

Braunschweig

Dr. Richard Korherr


Der SPIEGEL, Nr. 31, 25. Juli 1977, S. 12 :

THE known, racially persecuted writer H. G. Adler, formerly in Prague, now in London, wrote the following in 1960, in the foreword to the second edition of his extraordinary book "Theresienstadt 1941--1945": "It should be expressly stated that the designation of Dr. Korherr as 'SS-statistician' ... is not accurate, as he was never a member of the SS and has been rehabilitated for his conduct in the years of National Socialism."

Der SPIEGEL unfortunately publishes the claim of English historian Irving that I had in the spring of 1943 calculated the number of Jewish victims at Himmler’s order. In fact these data were provided to me completely finished including text by the Reich Main Security Office (Reichssicherheitshauptamt – RSHA) with the condition that I was not allowed to change any number and any word.

The statement that I had mentioned that over a million Jews had died in the camps of the Generalgouvernement and the Warthegau through special treatment is also inaccurate. I must protest against the word "died" in this context.

It was the very word "Sonderbehandlung" ("special treatment") that led me to call the RSHA by phone and ask what this word meant. I was given the answer that these were Jews who were settled in the Lublin district.

If these were records for executions, why not use the regular German terms for it (wurden hingerichtet, wurden erschossen, wurden erhaengt)?
Anyway, according to orthodox Holocaust-lore, all Jews were to be executed. Why mention them Jewish partisans separately? Note this is in 1942:

It's also funny to make the same orthographic mistakes in series:
- dass would be spelled daß
- It's also not des Standortkommandatur. It's either, des Standortkommandanten or der Standortkommandatur

If three documents in a row could be forged that unprofessionally, for sure a professional intelligence service could forge far more documents of that kind. But what's even more interesting non of the professional historians does seem to notice that kind of oddities.

The typewriter used apparently did have the a key for the SS runes. It seems unlikely that anyone would build a typewriter with the SS runes but without ß. I don't know anything about the models of typewriters that might have been available, but Carlos W. Porter talked about different typewriter models in his discussion of the Nuremberg documents, so he might be a good person to ask for anyone who is interested. One would have to have a large body of documents (from the same kind of sources) to work with to judge whether this feature (using "ss" rather than "ß") is truly abnormal.
