Re: joachim neander has names of 2 gassed

Sorry, "PS" - Wikipedia is neither a source nor a reference book for historians. As I already said, I would not take an oath on the number "600 + 250", most probably the number was far less. Numbers of crowds normally are overestimated by witnesses, even by professionals, such as...

Re: joachim neander has names of 2 gassed

Have you been in the basement of Block 11? I have, several times. It is quite spacious (not all parts are part of the museum and therefore open for the public). I would not take an oath at the number "850," but as a frequent passenger on the 502 bus to Nowa Huta (which is always crammed fu...

Re: Denial of the Holocaust and the genocide in Auschwitz

Hannover asked: Now Hans, Joachim, what was that you were saying about 'gas chambers'? As far as I am concerned: I did not say anything about gas chambers at this thread. Reading your post, I could return your GIGO argument, but I will not do so, I dislike ad hominem attacks. But may I humbly ask yo...

Re: Denial of the Holocaust and the genocide in Auschwitz

1) The body of an average, not totally emaciated, human being has enough chemical energy to even burn without supply from outside. See e.g. the cases of so-called "spontaneous combustion." . Please mr. Neander, could your give some more information on this wonderful phenomenon of 'spontan...

Re: Denial of the Holocaust and the genocide in Auschwitz

ps said: Herr Neander, stimmen Sie meinen Ausführungen zu und können wir gemeinsam ein Kommunique verfassen, in welchem dieser endgültige Beweis der Welt bekannt gemacht werden kann? Sorry, I cannot follow your temperature-based calculations. Maybe you're right, maybe not, I cannot decide on it. I'm...

Re: Denial of the Holocaust and the genocide in Auschwitz

@ the responses to cremation times and ashes: What a bunch of nonsense. The only physical evidence that might prove the numbers claimed by the Exaggerationists is miraculously unattainable. These excuses that the deposits would've been absorbed into the soil or taken down river (although I haven't ...

Re: The Original Yiddish Version of Elie Wiesel's "Night"

@ C. Yeager: That Buchenwald "recycled" inmate numbers can be seen from the prisoners' file cards and is mentioned in every standard scholarly book on Buchenwald. Those file cards that survived are in the Buchenwald Memorial museum or in the Thurigian State Archives, copies should be at th...

Re: The Original Yiddish Version of Elie Wiesel's "Night"

@ Carolyn Yeager: for a recently (1 month previous) deceased inmate's Buchenwald ID#123165 on the questionaire (ID numbers were not normally repeated so this brings up a red flag). If you mean by "ID number" the number a prisoner was given on intake, you are wrong: Buchenwald used to give ...

Re: The Original Yiddish Version of Elie Wiesel's "Night"

@ C. Yeager: And I also asked you to account for the change from foot to knee in his memoir All Rivers. Saying that autobiographies are not "photographic" and talking about literary categories is dissembling, not answering the question honestly. Your "question" is of a type that,...

Re: The Original Yiddish Version of Elie Wiesel's "Night"

@ Helen Chicago: I vaguely remember reading somewhere --- I forget where --- that in the original Yiddish version Wiesel described going out at night with gangs of other recently-freed young Jewish men and molesting German girls. Can anyone confirm this? I would be careful. Men, especially young men...

Re: The Original Yiddish Version of Elie Wiesel's "Night"

Mr. Hunt, it seems that you have done quite a lot of research about Jewish life at Auschwitz, which makes you paint a picture totally different from that given, for example, in reference works such as "Anatomy of the Auschwitz Death Camp." As you certainly know, revising history is far mor...

Re: The Original Yiddish Version of Elie Wiesel's "Night"

@ Miss Yeager: I'm afraid your main problem is that you are not aware that autobiographies never, never, are photographic records of the author's life, even if the author states this and is convinced of it. Forget about this. Autobiography as a literary category has been analyzed in great detail by ...

Re: The Original Yiddish Version of Elie Wiesel's "Night"

@ Eric Hunt: I stand corrected - I looked up some of my notes and found out that, in some VERY RARE cases, also Jewish prisoners were allowed to participate in a soccer game, even to use the fire brigade's water reservoirs for swimming. Maybe at a certain time, cigarettes were available at Buchenwal...

Re: The Original Yiddish Version of Elie Wiesel's "Night"

Dear Mr. Hunt, I'm afraid you believe things about Auschwitz that, maybe, someone has told some time, but that did not happen as told. First, to understand Auschwitz, it is absolutely necessary to distinguish between the main camp, aka Auschwitz I, Birkenau, aka Auschwitz II, and the ca. 30 sub-camp...
