Re: Products that were produced by inmate labor

A strange question. At Dr. Sigmund Raschers "Station 5" at Dachau, they were not flying, but dying for the Luftwaffe.

Re: Belzec Survivor Braha Rauffmann

It is not clear from the interview that she, indeed, was within the infamous camp, even for a short time. Belzec is (and was during WW II) a middle-sized town, where even long-range trains stop. As far as I understand, she and her mother were living in the town. As she obviously survived the war, sh...

Re: Products that were produced by inmate labor

AFAIK, this has not yet been done systematically. Special studies are existing, e.g. for Daimler-Benz, Krupp, Heinkel, or Hasag (IIRC). These studies, however, consider all forced labor, not only that from the concentration camp inmates. Most CC labor, however, was not employed in production, but in...

Re: Boston University: "Holocaust" is religion, not history

So what? Haven't I read more often than once at CODOH that "The Holocaust is belief," "is sort of a religion," etc.?
Should you, Mrs. Yeager, not be happy that it is taught there where Revisionists seemingly think it belongs to, at the Religion department?

Re: What if laws against Holocaust negationists were pointle

Signed a petition. And voted for a good candidate in elections. BTW, Polish law enforcement is far from that of Germany or France. Irving was able to tour there freely. In GE or FR, he would have got into trouble.

Re: What if laws against Holocaust negationists were pointle

Italy will have to have a law (or laws) that penalize(s) Holocaust denial. EU law demands this from all member states. It will depend, however, how the law(s) will be enforced. French, German and Austrian authorities tend to prosecute even fringe cases, which in countries such as the UK or Denmark w...

Re: Auschwitz needs £120million restoration

@ Hektor: My question was whether the wooden doors etc. on the pictures you show are at Birkenau? I don't remember to have seen them there. @ C. Yeager: Are you saying that the other camps were built better than Birkenau? Only Birkenau was shoddy, built with inferior lumber, etc? And are you saying ...

Re: Auschwitz needs £120million restoration

As I said in another post, Birkenau was not conceived to exist in eternity, much was only done makeshift, and the material used for building was of the worst quality. When, in the 1960s, first considerations were made how to commemorate Birkenau, distinguished artists proposed to let nature take ove...

Re: Auschwitz Guard Towers - Soviet Creations?

Birkenau was not built by the Germans for eternity. The material used was, as a rule, of bad quality, a fact about which Camp Commandant Hoess more than once complained, a last time in his memoirs written in Polish captivity. Auschwitz has a rather bad climate, and from the adjacent industrial regio...

Re: Post-war Polish Christians having Auschwitz tattoos

@Ilikerealhistory: CCS is right, tattooing is against Jewish law, written in the Torah. It was one of the many rules issued about 2,500 to 3,000 years ago by Israel's leaders to distinguish their people from their neighbors. The bans best known among non-Jews probably are those of making pictures (c...

Re: Post-war Polish Christians having Auschwitz tattoos

Dear Miss Yeager, if this is really your opinion - Here we go again, depending on "witnesses." No higher authority or "decree." If this is the case, I may join those who doubt there was ever a policy to tattoo prisoners at Auschwitz. - you should better leave the field of histori...

Re: Post-war Polish Christians having Auschwitz tattoos

Apart from the last paragraph, this is picked up entirely from USHMM's page on Auschwitz tattoos. You could have just given a link. And how do we know it is accurate? There are no sources given for where this information was obtained. The USHMM sets itself up as the unquestioned authority on all ma...

Re: Post-war Polish Christians having Auschwitz tattoos

@ CCS: 1) The Polish professor never had Reich citizenship, the Belgian survivor neither, and the Sinto had Reich citizenship, but was not "Aryan." Reich citizenship was quite a complicated matter. I published an article about it (in German) some time ago in theologie.geschichte, a peer-re...
