I suggest both of you listen to the recording again.
This are the exact words :
After his father dismissed the accusation Rolf mengele states ( minute 3:18 ) :
" I THAN STEPPED BACKWARD AND SAID OK - SELECTIONS ! , I THINK THAT WAS A FACT , AND WAS ADMITTED BY HIM VERY CLEARLY "
I would like to remind you that Rolf mengele is NOT a revisionists . He believes in his father crimes . So when he says " SELECTIONS " he means selections as mainstream historians view them - selections that sent people to their death.
Had he thought those where mere mere work arrangement why would he feel the need to confront his father about it ? why would he mention that his father admitted that fact to him ? This make no sense unless Rolf Mengele thought those " selections " involved something very sinister indeed.
It is also clear from the way he says it that Rolf Mengele does not think those " selections " meant some non harmful procedure - one would have to be blind not to see that.
It seems you have a problem with proper text analysis here. We got two Protagonists here - and I'm explaining this all on face value no fictitious Eiegesis from my side into what they side:
- Josef Mengele (medical doctor in Auschwitz)
- Rolf Mengele (son of the above didn't grow up with his father)
Rolf Mengele tells us about his visit to his father and how he experienced this. Bear in mind that Rolf grew up with all the propaganda against Germany, which likely included disinformation about his father, too. Given that he has a personal attachment to this, due to his fathers (supposed) role in Auschwitz, plausibly he was be very interested in this. He's obviously believing the narrative that has been constructed via media and education in Germany. So you have a person that thinks Selection = Sending people to gas chambers. This is not in dispute.
Then you have Josef Mengele, who talks out of memory, based on his own experiences. To him Selections have a completely different meaning: Examination and sorting prisoners in terms of labour capability or in need of medical attention. So no, this is not an admission of Dr. Mengele that he took part in homicidal gassings as decision maker on who will be gassed. This becomes very clear, if you listen from 2:43 onwards, especially 3:02ff. There Rolf Reports that his father asked him, whether he couldn't see that this (the media narrative) was propaganda lies.
If the Holocaust Narrative was true, the response would have been different. Something like:"Yeah, it was tough, but we did what we were ordered to, so we exterminated the Jews".
Rolf Mengele seems to be a fairly intelligent person, educated as well, lawyer I think. He speaks English relatively well for a German of his time. But he also appears to be a rather naive character. It's the gullible, but intelligent personality, many Germans have. Since everybody says it, it must be true. No wonder most people believe it. He was actually born short before the end of fighting in Europe, so he must be in his seventies now, possibly still alive.
The issue we have here at hand is typical for the Holocaust subject. Holocaust proponents simply interpret all kind of gruesome ideas into otherwise relatively innocent or ordinary concepts. With other words they change the meaning of what documents and witnesses say or what the artifacts are.
Here is an article:http://www.nytimes.com/1986/06/18/world ... er-up.html
I guess the interview was done somewhere in the 80s with the meeting of Rolf and Joseph Mengele having occured about a decade or so before.
