Bauer's blame shifting and complete turnabout (compared to his statement from 1990) is just another lie. There was no experimental lab for the manufacture of human soap at Danzig. That place was an anatomical institute. And among various things, anatomical institutes prepare skeletons for studies and collections. One of the byproducts from the preparation of skeletons for anatomical purposes is fat, human fat in the case of human skeletons, fat from body fat stores and also fat from the degreasing of bones. Any anatomical institute in this world produces human-fat 'soap' similar to the piece provided by the Soviets at Nuremberg, as a byproduct of its activities.
Excellent point, so they just passed that soap-like byproduct on as "evidence" for "soap production"? Now that's how the innuendo works: Pass on something that can be expected to be presented as evidence for something outrageous.
My impression was also that they may have used soap utilized for cleaning work in the lab (hygiene being very important there) for testing. That means you'd have human body particles mixed in with the commercial soap. And tests could yield exactly that. Voila, to a gullible audience that then could be portrayed as "proof" of human soap manufacturing. Now, if you follow a thorough path of debunking this, by dissecting facts, causalities and intentions. The hoaxers can simply reply: "Look how desperately this Nazi sympathizers try to deny Nazi atrocities". An elaborately constructed, yet simply stated, lie can easy be disseminated to the public. Objective rebuttals with complex explanations (like it's commonly the case in the real word) is a far more difficult sell. To me it seems that's what the Holocaust lobby was thriving on right from the beginning. Mudslinging accusations is far more easy then doing police work, especially when the waters were already muddied by propaganda and war-time polarization.
