More unfounded propoganda.
Ofcourse, there was a euthanasia program. Nobody denies this. However, this weren't just arbitrary killings; they needed a doctor to verify that the person in question was uncurable, and were thus given a mercy killing. It's up to you whether this is moral or not, personally I don't feel strongly either way.
Lebensunwertes Leben, or "life unworthy of life".
Is this a real term, or just propoganda?
First applied to the mentally impaired, later to the "racially inferior", or "sexually deviant", or merely "enemies of the state" both internal and external.
Again, any evidence? I agree with the first one, as detailed above, but I was under the impression this whole "master race" thing was a work of propaganda. 100 of thousands of the German armed forces were foreign volunteers, some black, and ofcourse some weren't "Aryan". The Nazis had numerous supporters in non Aryan countries. Yes, there was a programme of eugenics, but is that so extremely objectionable. On top of that, the German people consisted of several sub races, but nobody seriously contends the majority of Germans were going to be killed off! As for "sexually deviant", as we revisionists know, homosexuality was a crime on a lot of countries back then, and homosexuals, after their prison sentences, were sometimes sent to the concentration camps. Ofcourse I don't agree that homosexuality should be punished, but the Nazis attitude to it is slightly more progressive then certain countries today. "Enemies of the state", that is political prisoners were sometimes executed, but also sent to the concentration camps where they were made to change their views.
From very early in the war, part of Nazi policy was to murder civilians en masse, especially targeting Jews
That'w why Hitler and co were adamant supporters of the Geneva convention, right?
I don't deny some civilians were killed, as in every war, but may I remind you it was the Allies who started bombing German civillians, and the "evil" Nazis waited 3 months before responding to this, however much they didn't want to? Could a revionist who knows more about real history then this propaganda elaborate on the real actions, or lack of, by Nazis towards civilians?
which later in the war became Hitler's "final solution", the complete extermination of the Jews.
IIf it was a complete extermination, he did a extremely poor job on it. Anyway, see Carlo Mattogno's book on Treblinka for a in depth listing of documents that disprove that the infamous final solution was the extermination of the Jews.
Beginning with Einsatzgruppen death squads in the East, killing some 1,000,000 people in numerous massacres,
The Einzatgruppen were for fighting partisans- once again see the Treblinka book for more on this. I won't deny however that some civilians were killed, though. As for the one million, as we all know the reports claiming this are unreliable to say the least.
later in concentration camps where prisoners were actively denied proper food and health care
This is a blatant lie. In no camp I know of, where the inmates deliberately denied food and health care- any problems were from Allied bombing and such resulting in a lack of food. There were hospitals at several of the camps, and reports dealing with the food still exist (for more on this, there are details spread thoughout the Holocaust handbook series, detailing the adequate food the inmates received, and also serious efforts to improve conditions. Wow, these lies are so easy to demolish...
and ending with the construction of extermination camps -- government facilities whose entire purpose was the systematic murder and disposal of massive numbers of people.
Need I say anything about this?
In 1945, as advancing Allied troops began discovering many camps, they found the results of these policies: hundreds of thousands of starving and sick prisoners locked in with more thousands of dead bodies
As a result solely of ALLIED BOMBING. Seriously, did the person writing this article even know anything about history? Also, in some camps some of the prisoners looked well looked after and fed, look at some of the Auchwitz photos.
Evidence of gas chambers, high-volume crematoriums, thousands of mass graves, documentation of awful medical experimentation, and much more
No real comment. Not much to say on gas chambers, the crematoriums have been proved to not have been able to cremate the amount they need to, where ARE the mass graves, I've never seen the awful medical experiments either.
The Nazis killed more than 10 million people in this manner, including 6 million Jews.
Again, no comment. Is it 10 million now? Not 12 million? Or just 6 million all together? Or 11 million? Get your (non) facts straight! One of the comments claims 17 million!
I can't believe I used to swallow propaganda like this right up, without even asking for proof. In a way, I feel ashamed, but it has to be said everyone is susseptible to the big lie technique. I mean, most of the stuff in this article consists of pretty straight lies, but your average person will believe it. Ofcourse, lies like this are being used to control the world, from the situation in Isreal, to the problem of multiculturalism, to any feeling and Nationalism. You will already know all about this.
As for the photos:http://cdn.theatlantic.com/static/infoc ... 043944.jpg
I'm pretty sure this has been dealt with somewhere before. Could someone clarify this?http://cdn.theatlantic.com/static/infoc ... 043951.jpg
This picture has also been dealt with before somewhere. It was concluded it is probably a fake of some description.http://cdn.theatlantic.com/static/infoc ... 715499.jpg
Do these people look unhappy or in distress to you?http://cdn.theatlantic.com/static/infoc ... 010184.jpg
Not much to say here, but again the deportees don't seem to be very distressed.http://cdn.theatlantic.com/static/infoc ... 030957.jpg
Weren't children killed? These look quite young.http://cdn.theatlantic.com/static/infoc ... 000001.jpg
I can't say for sure, but sounds like propaganda is the vain of the shrunken heads.
All the photos showing masses of dead bodies are from the disease and starvation that prevailed in the last months of the war- not from limitless cruelty as the article claims.http://cdn.theatlantic.com/static/infoc ... 406116.jpg
As said above, yes this looks like a man sleeping.
Also, one of the comments:
Can you please forward this to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad?
According to him, this never happened. It was all theater.
He knows that these bodies are from non-intentional starvation and disease, as was happening in the rest of Germany at the time. Once again, ignorance. Seeing the true believers in the comments, I can't help but be annoyed that the true perpetrators of these crimes- the "allies"- are not know to them. Yes, these photos are horific. But let's reveal who is responsible for them, please.
