Re: Mengele denied performing ghastly experiments on anybody

Postby Friedrich Paul Berg » 7 years 5 months ago (Wed Apr 25, 2012 6:40 pm)

Saigon has not come back to this discussion with any answers to my challenge. Perhaps he will later. I hope he does.

In any event, I did find my copy of The Nazi Doctors by Robert Jay Lifton. The book is well worth looking at closely but critiucally, even buying ("used"for only $3.07), for the monumental quackery and pseudo-scholarship that it represents so well. Lifton was and is not just some ordinary pious quack; he is, according to the cover: "Distinguished Professor of Psychiatry and Psychology at John Jay College [of Criminal Justice] and The Graduate Center of the City University of New York." Wow! The back cover even has the warmest praise from Raul Hilberg. Small wonder that American criminal justice is such a monumental disaster as was made clear a few nights ago on The Frontline PBS special about "forensic science" in America, even today. http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/real-csi/ In general, it is clear that no accusation against the Nazis, especially Mengele, was ever too foul or too stupid for Lifton to include in his book. The book is a vast but useful garbage pail.

One can "search in" the book itself using the following link to Amazon.

http://www.amazon.com/dp/0465049052/ref ... 0465049052

If one then searches further, for example, for "Eva C." one can see the actual text of page 363 where Lifton says: "Eva C., for instance, on the whole an accurate and earthy observer,..." Eva C. was almost certainly the famous Eva Mozes Kor who has made many YouTube videos which can easily be found and seen on YouTube. I personally questioned her and her twin sister, Miriam (both "survivors" of Auschwitz) many years ago through a radio interview. It became so obvious that she was lying her head off that even the interviewer jumped in on my side and pointed out just how malicious and grossly stupid her claims were. She was changing her testimony as she was talking on the show. The fact that Mengele had drawn blood from her arm was no more criminal than what occurs in almost every doctor's office every day. Mengele probably needed to test her blood for typhus in order to keep her alive. But then she added that he also injected her in her back as well, and it was all so painful---oh my! Eva Kor, an important "witness" indeed for Lifton, is right up there with Irene Zisblatt.

No doubt, if Mengele had been found alive in Brazil and had been put on trial, he would have been given a death sentence and no justice at all. He was not some minor Nazi but already a major subject in the Belsen Trial. Mengele was and still ia a kind of poster boy for Nazi, even German, fiendishness and utter depravity. That even today there is no shred of real evidence of any atrocious misconduct on his part--only shows how hoaky the entire "holocaust" hoax really is. Some day, Jews will be distancing themselves from shameless quacks like Lifton and Hilberg. "Lifton and Hilberg were merely figments of neo-Nazi ranting"--but their books may still remain to prove otherwise.

No doubt, when Saigon began his posts on this thread, he had total confidence that there must be some serious evidence, somewhere, that Mengele had done at least something wrong. The holocaust claims could not possibly be as baseless and shabby as I insisted--and yet, folks, things really are that bad and even worse. It all reflects on America and its dominant, continuing role in the world today. One might as well wake up, folks, better late than never, to the shocking reality that America really is a kind of luxury lunatic asylum for self-righteous monsters. Lifton's books and the endless praise which they still garner in spite of their utter shabbiness only prove it.

The Holocaust story is a hoax because 1) no one was killed by the Nazis in gas chambers, 2) the total number of Jews who died in Nazi captivity is miniscule compared to what is alleged.

Charles Traynor wrote:Exactly Borjastick, if the Jewish Holocaust Industry had any real dirt on Dr. Mengele the whole world would know about it. As it is, all the History Channel and their researchers can offer Joe and Jill Sixpack is countless boring and repetative documentaries on how he escaped to South America.

The charlatans never go into any detail about Mengele’s work at Auschwitz because there is no evidence of him ever conducting any blood curdling experiments. Dr. Mengele joined the medical profession to save lives not to take them.

An interesting report from the U.S. Department of Justice In the Matter of Josef Mengele and related post war investigations on him.
A Report to the Attorney General of the United States, October 1992.
SUBJECT: Mengele Report
Enclosed is a copy of OSI's report "In the Matter of Josef Mengele."
The report is the culmination of our investigation, commenced in 1985, into the whereabouts and postwar activities of this infamous Nazi criminal.
I would like to acknowledge the outstanding contributions made to the investigation and to the preparation of this report by the following former OSI personnel: Deputy Director Michael Wolf, Trial Attorney Philip L. Sunshine, and Chief of Investigative Research David G. Marwell.

Concerning properly the documentary references given about "Medical Experiments" carried out by Mengele, that report mentions:

Reference #1, p 1&2
Mengele was also notorious for performing grotesque pseudo-medical experiments on prisoners -- children and adults alike -- especially those who were twins.

In 1981, the State Prosecutor in Frankfurt issued a warrant for Josef Mengele's arrest.[2] This document, included in the appendix to this report, contains a lengthy recitation of Mengele's crimes. It is perhaps most accurately described as a catalog of horror. Mengele is accused of murder on a colossal scale. He held in his pointing index finger the power of life and death for the hundreds of thousands of innocents whom he confronted as they stepped from the overcrowded freight trains that brought them to Auschwitz (Oswiecim), Poland, some from the farthest corners of Europe. In a grotesque perversion of the physician's role, Auschwitz's so-called "Angel of Death" employed his knowledge of the workings of life in order to destroy it. He determined who would die immediately in the gas chambers of Auschwitz and who would be exploited for labor or Nazi "science" before being killed. On some, he carried out ghastly experiments without their consent, in an attempt to advance a twisted pseudoscience. Beyond the scale of these crimes, what is perhaps most shocking is their range: from the "detached" direction of mass killings to the personal murder of young children for the "sheer pleasure" of it. These were crimes that prosecutors were prepared to prove before a court of law.
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
2 - The State Prosecutor in Freiburg im Breisgau had issued an arrest warrant in June 1959. The Frankfurt State Prosecutor subsequently assumed jurisdiction over crimes committed at Auschwitz, and a new warrant based on more extensive evidence was issued in 1981; see appendix p. 1.


Reference #2, p 106&107
Manfred Wolfson, a senior research analyst in the Berlin branch of the OCCWC, wrote a memorandum to the chief of the Berlin branch, Benjamin Ferencz on November 7, 1946, two weeks after the medical trial indictment was issued. The seven-page memorandum references information in Mengele's SS file as well as several witness statements linking him to experiments conducted at Auschwitz. Wolfson's memorandum concludes, "In view of the above stated facts it is recommended that SS Haupsturmfuehrer Dr. Josef Mengele be placed on the Wanted List and that he be indicted for war crimes."175/

Reference #3, p 97-102
b. Allegations Against Mengele

Although the Theater Judge Advocate had no jurisdiction over crimes committed at the Auschwitz concentration camp (since the camp was in Poland, it was not located in the U.S. zone and was not liberated by U.S. forces), a U.S. investigation was nevertheless begun. The evidence unearthed during this investigation -- documents and witness testimony, including evidence regarding Mengele's activities -- was given to the Poles for use by them in their trials.[156] The documentation makes clear that, by June 11, 1945, significant evidence was in U.S. hands describing horrendous crimes committed by Josef Mengele at Auschwitz.

Auschwitz was liberated by the Soviet Army on or about January 27, 1945. Almost immediately, stories began to appear in the world press concerning the crimes that had been committed there.[157] On April 23, 1945, the United Nations War Crimes Commission received a formal statement of charges against a number of individuals for their crimes at Auschwitz. The U.N. War Crimes Commission committee charged with evaluating incoming allegations decided to place the names of those individuals charged by the Poles on List No. 8 of the U.N. War Crimes Commission Wanted List.[158] On this list, dated May 1945, one can find Dr. Josef Mengele as No. 240. His name is correctly spelled and he is properly identified as a Hauptsturmfuehrer and camp physician. The particulars of the charges against Mengele include the allegation that he took "part in the mass extermination of internees in the gas chambers."[159]

The earliest document in the Theater Judge Advocate investigation concerning Auschwitz that mentions Mengele is dated April 30, 1945. A "Report on War Crimes" from Lieutenant Gerard Meillet, French Liaison G5, XIII Corps to CIC Control, lists some

individuals responsible for the crimes at Auschwitz. The second named is Mengele: "Mengele called 'Mephisto,' had a hobby about twins. Made surgical experiences [sic] on them, but taking good care of them. Another fact about Mengele: Any sick person of a anti-pathetic looking [sic] would have noted on the sickcall card, by Mengele, 'uncurable,' that ment [sic] death!"[160] The letter "A" was placed in the margin next to Mengele's name, denoting that he would be considered an "accused". in the Auschwitz investigation. A statement made by a Czech physician, Dr. Kirk Grunwald, that was forwarded to the commander of VIII Corps by a Military Government Officer in "Armstadt" on May 13, 1945 and which ended up in the Auschwitz investigation records, says the following about Mengele:

Chief physician in Auschwitz II, Birkenau -- responsible for the organization of man murder [sic]. He did for years the deary [sic] job of selections. He also was responsible for the 'scientific' experiments made on healthy people. Millions have been murdered during his office.[161]

In a sworn statement taken by an investigator for the War Crimes Branch of the Judge Advocate Section of the U.S. Seventh Army on May 19, 1945, Dr. Simon Eisen of Antwerp, Belgium mentioned an SS Obersturmfuehrer [sic] "Mengeles," who "controlled and operated" the "Bruckenau" camp, two kilometers from Auschwitz. Dr. Eisen described "Mengeles" as wearing pince-nez glasses, being 5'10" or 11", and weighing about 180 pounds.[162] In what appears to be a radio script or similar text prepared by the psychological warfare detachment of the U.S. Ninth Army, dated 28 April 1945, a "Dr. Mengels" and his activities at Auschwitz are described in some detail:

"[He] was one of the chief selectors in the camp. In the hospital he used to joke with the patients whom he would condemn to the gas chamber a minute later. While he put the sign of death on a patient's chart he amused himself by whistling and singing popular tunes. His hobby was to select particularly all twins and liliputians for the gas chamber. He also used these types for his famous experiments and was assisted by a couple of women physicians who had specialized in dentistry, opthalmology, and anthropology."[163]

In addition to these witness statements, the Auschwitz investigation file also contains a report from the Research Office of the United Nations War Crimes Commission, dated June 1945, which lists a Dr. Mengele as a war criminal at the Auschwitz concentration camp.[164] Beyond these specific allegations directly against Mengele, a considerable body of evidence concerning the general conditions at Auschwitz was collected by U.S. authorities by early June 1945.
However, merely knowing that a Dr. Josef Mengele was accused of horrendous crimes was not sufficient to locate him. Victims of his crimes were unlikely to know of Mengele's personal history, home address, or place of birth. It was also too early to have obtained that kind of pertinent information from people with such knowledge. Personnel files that would reveal Mengele's place of birth and other biographical data, and which were late to be collected in a U.S.-run document center in Berlin, had not yet been located.[165]

One document that did provide this information, however, was discovered and found its way into the Auschwitz investigation files by the end of May 1945. The document was a captured recommendation list, dated March 29, 1944, for the awarding of the War Service Cross, second class. First on the list to receive the decoration was "Dr. Josef Mengele, born in Guenzburg." The citation for the award indicates that Mengele was a camp doctor at Auschwitz from June 17, 1943, and that he had been active with "urgent scientific problems in research concerning the racial identification of gypsies." In what can now be recognized as euphemistic language for the selection of victims for annihilation, Mengele is also cited for "regularly cooperating in the carrying out of special tasks."[166] This document, which bears the handwritten note "carded 31 May 45," would have given investigators Mengele's place of birth and therefore a place to begin searching for him.
_________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
156 - See discussion infra.
157 - Much, of course, was known about Auschwitz prior to the end of the war. See Lacquer, Walter, The Terrible Secret and Gilbert, Martin, Auschwitz and the Allies among other works.
158 -The surviving records of the Commission are housed in United Nations archives in Manhattan.

165 - These files were located in October 1945.
166 - JAG Auschwitz File 000-50-3, NARA: RG338..

We can easily imagine what would be the content of Ref#2. However, it would be interesting to know what was the actual documentary evidences of Ref#1&3 for the claims against Mengele and his alleged "grotesque pseudo-medical experiments on prisoners" as well as his responsibility in the selection of people for the gas chambers.
Eventually, it should be possible to obtain such document from German and US Archives.
The genuine integral documents of the Report are available from the Archives of the US Department of Justice. However as I have some problem with my line for loading I couldn't check if the appendix 1 is on it or not.

Regarding Saigon's posting of a quote from of the Wikipedia article on Mengele, people may be unsurprised to know that the quote as it appears on the wiki page has been censored. I.e. the wiki editors there had deleted a selection of the sentence as it appear in the cited source. Here is the full uncensored quote:
"Some forty years after the war, only a 100 sets of these twins could be found, many living in Israel and the United States. Strangely enough, many of them recall Mengele as a gentle, affable man who befriended them as children and gave them chocolates. Since many had immediately been separated from their families upon entering the camp, Mengele became a sort of father figure. Still a tension existed, that at any time they could be killed if they did not keep a low profile. Older twins "recognized his kindness as a deception - yet another of his perverse experiments to test (our) mental endurance."
http://www.longwood.k12.ny.us/lhs/scien ... ngele.html


To empahsisise the deliberate censorship at Wikipedia, here is only the bit that was deleted:
"Strangely enough, many of them recall Mengele as a gentle, affable man who befriended them as children and gave them chocolates. Since many had immediately been separated from their families upon entering the camp, Mengele became a sort of father figure."

The full quote makes it clear that not just a few but "MANY" of these surviving twins who had been children at Auschwitz had memories of him that were only positive.

As the source for this is a book detailing the consensus view of 'Mengele as monster', it attempts to explain that eyewitness testimony of Mengele's kindness by saying:
"..his kindness [was] a deception -- yet another of his perverse experiments to test (our) mental endurance."

But still, even with this 'explanation', it remains clear that even these other "older twins" also agreed that Mengele was kind to them.
In other words, the elder twins confirm the younger twins positive memories but felt the need to try and rationalise that kindness when talking to a researcher some forty years later, by describing it as a "deception" and as "another of his perverse experiments".

This strikes me as a good example of how holocaust 'history' has been recorded: even incontrovertible eyewitness testimonies which record Mengele's kindness to many of the twins whom he experimented upon must be explained as being some kind of cruel mental experiment of his.
Its also a good example of how that recorded history gets summarised by Wikipedia.

Summary:
1. positive assessments of Mengele are not allowed to be included at Wikipedia, even when it is from reliable eye-witness survivor testimony.
2. he was remembered as a gentle, affable and kind father figure by "many" children at Auschwitz.

Interesting pictures, Jerzy. It would be nice to think it was that easy. Unfortunately, while it appears that German paratroops (Fallschirmjaeger) did indeed use the harness in the pictures you found, the Luftwaffe used harnesses with a round center clasp very much like that shown in the "Mengele" pictures.

For example

So whatever else we might say about the Mengele myths, I don't think that the pictures of the high altitude experiements can be dismissed on the basis of the parachute harnesses alone.

Except that the harness shown in your picture is totally different to the one shown by Jerzy. Jerzy has clearly shown the harness to be an American version which of course would have been nowhere near a concentration camp during the war. The pictures of the so called jews being used in altitude experiments were, as far as I can make out, shot after the war by the psyche warfare dept. and used to push the myths of the nazis and their terrible deeds against jews.

Just to clarify that last post, I do see differences between the harnesses in the "Mengele" pictures and the Luftwaffe harnesses in the pictures I put up earlier. For example, in the "Mengele" pictures, the belly band appears to be missing. Assuming, for the sake of argument, that those pictures are in fact legitimate and that the harnesses are the same, I could only speculate that the belly band was unnecessary to the experiment, and thus omitted. (I suspect that the metal ring on one side of the belly band is the rip cord, and that the purpose of the band as a whole was to secure the parachute against the body until the cord could be pulled. If that's the case, omitting the belly band would make sense in an indoor experiment, since neither the parachute nor the rip cord would be needed then, just the harness.)

Anyway, I'm not looking to get into a big argument here about parachute harness design. My point is just that we need to be careful about how we examine evidence. I don't think we can conclude, from the pictures alone, that the harnesses in the "high altitude experiment" pictures are Luftwaffe equipment, but I don't think we can conclude that they are American either.

I think it's clear that the harnesses in the posed pictures are American, but, nevertheless, I strongly support Kladderadatsch in raising the issue. Revisionists must be rigorous with ourselves and each other, subjecting our hypotheses to testing as we demand of the opposition.

Mengele denied performing ghastly experiments on anybody

If a Nazi ever denies being a participant in a crime that he is accused of, then he is lying.

But if he admits to participation, then he is always telling the truth.

Jerzy, as should be clear from my later posts in this thread, I have compared the pictures. And as I've noted, it's clear that the harnesses in the "high altitude experiment" pictures are not identical to the ones shown used by Luftwaffe personnel in the pictures I posted. As I've also noted, one plausible explanation for that difference is simply that the Luftwaffe harnesses were modified for the experiment by removal of the belly band--a modification for which I could easily find a natural rationale. And of course, that hardly limits the possibilities: the harnesses could easily have been another model of Luftwaffe-issue equipment, or an experimental model that otherwise didn't see service, and so on.

Naturally, I can't prove any of those hypotheses, but then, neither can you prove the idea that the harnesses in the Mengele pictures are American made. You haven't even tried. All you can do is point at them and say that they look similar. And they do, but so what? Have you looked closely at the pictures? In addition to the four corner straps that meet at the central clasp, the American T-7 model you've shown us has a fifth strap that reaches in from the wearer's left side:

Image

But if you look at the harnesses in the alleged Mengele experiments, there is no such strap to be seen:

Image

Image

So how exactly have you proven that these harnesses are "identical" to the American T-7? You could argue, I suppose, that the harnesses were modified for the purposes of the experiment, but then you're no better off than someone arguing that they're modified Luftwaffe issue. Try those odds against a smart, keen-eyed holocaust believer and see how far it gets you.

Anyway, like I said, I'm really not interested in arguing about the fine details of parachute harness design. It would be dumb to do so: the evidence of a few old photographs is ambiguous and hard to interpret, and there's too much other evidence that we do not have. (It would be nice to have the actual harnesses to compare, for example.)

My point is simply that we have to be honest and critical about the evidence that we do have, and which we try to use in making our arguments. Revisionists attack the orthodox party all the time for its deceitful manipulation of evidence, but that line of attack won't be worth much if revisionists get caught doing the same thing themselves.

Take a look at your original post again. I don't mean to accuse you of bad faith; I'm happy to assume that you simply jumped to a conclusion too soon. But the fact remains, you showed us pictures of German paratroops, with their square-shaped harness, while omitting to mention that Luftwaffe personnel used a very different four-point harness with a round central clasp that looks very much like the harness in the Mengele pictures. Presented that way, it seems like a compelling argument: Look, the hoaxers used an American parachute harness! The German one is completely different! But what happens later when a person sees pictures of the Luftwaffe harnesses, and realizes that it's really not that different after all? The best guess, Jerzy, is that they'll conclude that you were deliberately trying to deceive them--and then your credibility is shot.

If you want to compare pictures of the American T-7 and the Luftwaffe harnesses, and try to convince people that the "high altitude experiment" pictures show the former, not the latter, good luck to you. I don't think you're likely to have much success with the unconvinced, but at least it's an honest argument. But don't use pictures of the Fallschirmjaeger: that one is just too easy to shoot down.

Revisionism has it tough enough getting a fair hearing. Let's not make it even harder by using bad arguments that wind up making us look dishonest.

This took the form of placing a man in a large vat of cold water to simulate being thrown overboard at sea. He timed how long the subject could survive before losing body function and then losing consciousness etc.

I may be wrong but I believe this was actually filmed and the results are still used and quoted today in sea training classes.

Please correct me if I am wrong.

The origin of the parachute harness aside, what is the point of putting a prisoner in one of these harnesses and suspending him from a pipe in a room? What sort of experiment was this supposed to be? What was supposed to be learned from hanging someone from the ceiling in a parachute harness? The Youtube video displays the photo without comment.
As for the 1500 sets of twins, it appears to me to be a symbolic number with its origins in Kabbalahistic gematria. The 15, 24, 42, & 6 numbers appear over and over in the literature. 100 sets could still be located after 40 years in the U.S. and Israel? That sounds like a pretty good survival rate to me for people who have supposedly undergone torturous medical experiments. Did they look for any in the Soviet bloc? It doesn't seem reasonable to me that all 1500 sets would have been Jews. Did anyone look for Gentile twins? Now it might be reasonable that many sets went to Auschwitz if it was a center of twin research and twins were being directed there. Without better documentation presents, however, it looks to me like the number was conjured from thin air.
