At this time, the alleged plan to murder all deported Jews not needed for labor had not come into effect. Mr. Himmler's intention to induct 150,000 German Jews into the concentration camp system within 4 weeks seems highly optimistic and so it proved.
This alleged plan, are you referring to the Wannsee conference? But it does not say to murder all deported Jews which are not needed for work.
I agree, to provide for 150,000 Jews in concentration camps within 4 weeks is very tight.
There is no record in the Auschwitz Calendar of registration numbers being issued to these people. If there were no mass gassings at Auschwitz
then those unfit for labor would routinely have been accommodated elsewhere. In that sense, the Schwarz message is not especially incriminating. Whilst revisionists still have the problem of locating where all these people may have disappeared to, exterminationists might ponder on the reason why Lieutenant Schwarz sought to employ euphemisms beyond the supposedly standardized 'Sonderbehandlung'.
In the latest VffG magazine, which came in the mail yesterday, is a piece by Mattogno: Franciszek Piper and The Number of Victims of Auschwitz. I am doing the translation for Rudolf right now to be published in about 6 months. I am almost finished with it and can post it here in a day or two.
The first problem is, how many Jews were deported to Auschwitz. F. Piper, the head of the History Department of the Auschwitz museum wrote a book about this, The Number of Victims in Auschwitz, and Mattogno rips the book apart.
The first problem of course is, to find out how many Jews actually were deported to Auschwitz. Mattogno comes up with 1,111,100 deportees, including 914,600 Jews and 196, 500 non-Jews.
About 401,500 inmates were registered, of these were about 205,000 Jews.
The number of transferees from the transfer camp of Birkenau to other camps is at least 98,600.
At least 250,800 prisoners were transferred or evacuated in 1944 and 1945.
The number of dead in Auschwitz is about 135,500.
The number of dismissed, transferred and liberated from 1940 to 1945 is at least about 364,600.
The difference (1,111,100 – 364,600 – 135,500) = about 611,000. This is the number of victims which were according to the official history “non-registered gassed”.
A total of not less than 500,100 prisoners were accepted in the camp, of these 401,000 registered and about 98,600 were quartered in the transfer camp of Birkenau.
Mattogno: The fate of the missing Jews
Neither F. Piper nor any other historian has ever furnished even a trace of proof of gassings of non-registered inmates. On the other hand it can be shown with absolute certainty that two in the literature widest exploited alleged gassings – the one of the gypsies in Birkenau and the one of the inmates of the ghetto in Lodz are actually history falsifications (Mattogno adds to further pieces about this in the magazine which I will do afterwards). Of the other alleged gassings does not exist a single documentary proof.
It is also a fact that the official historiography considers at least 79,200 non-registered Hungarian Jews who were admitted to the transfer camp of Birkenau, were considered gassed. Piper reduces this still to 54,200!
Concerning the fate of the 611,000 missing Jews, several documentary sources indicate, that they were deported to the East. Reichsminister Albert Speer talked in this connection, specifically referring to Auschwitz in an important document of “Ostwanderung” (Eastern emigration).
We challenge you to name some of these camps. A dozen will do, for starters. Then we shall see how many people could possibly be accounted for.
I heard this before. Was it Roberto or Hans?
There are several documents talking in a general way about deportations of Jews to the East. But there is very little which specifically gives names of camps, towns.
But there is no proof of gassings or gas chambers either. And the cremation capacity was also quite limited.
The evidence was presented at the Irving-Lipstadt trial:
http://www.davenportlyons.com/www/legal ... ction2.htm
So who is right? Mattogno or the defense team of the Irving trial?
By the latter assertion, he means the claim they were gassed. Note he does not dispute the registration numbers of those inducted into the camp. Mr. Faurisson evidently accepts the authenticity and accuracy of the registration numbering system. So do we. If Mr. Sailor wants to continue in his unfounded belief that tens of thousands of unregistered Jews were held in Auschwitz during 1943, that is his business.
Is that what I said? Was the question not about what happened to 4000 Jews or so and I suggested maybe they were sent to a “Schonblock” (SB) (recuperation block), which caused a big commotion on another forum by Hans. (He is a fan of interpreting SB as “Sonderbehandlung” which to him is a codeword for killing).
But I am puzzled somewhat about the purpose of the Birkenau camp. I am not convinced of the work camp version, except work for the operation and maintenace of the camp itself, and may be some minor outside work assignments. Or was it mainly a “Durchgangslager” (transfer camp)?
