Handguns in Auschwitz dressing room

Postby Carto's Cutlass Supreme » 4 years 8 months ago (Thu Jul 16, 2015 1:01 pm)

From my understanding of the story, after Mengele sorted the people, those unable to work went directly to the undressing room, and then the gas chamber. But there has not been any kind of search of their bodies or belongings. They've brought stuff because they believed they were going to a work camp. Isn't it likely that out of 2,000 people the occasional pistol would have been found in their pocket or bag in the undressing room after they had gone to the gas chamber? That's a handgun a day. Since the standard story is that the Jews in the sonderkommando ran the killing operation, and presumably Jews gathered their belongings in the undressing room and sent them to "Kanada" (the sorting area for Jewish belongings coming into the camp) it's pretty reasonable that Jewish sonderkommandos themselves would have recovered a handgun maybe once a day. Dario Gabbai claims the sonderkommando didn't starve because they were often finding food like tins of fish in the belongings.

Were handguns illegal in Poland at that time?

Now consider from air photos that crematorium 2 and 3 are barely guarded, on the perimeter of the camp, and near fields and woods. Yet with access to guns and considering what their job was, no revolt?

Compare the intrusiveness of the TSA inspection regime at U.S. airports with the relatively laid back induction of the detainees into Auschwitz-Birkenau - readily visible in real photographs of the "ramp". Groups of women and men resting under trees or walking casually towards what was obviously a shower and delousing.

I would venture to guess that the guards at Auschwitz were not doing genital patdowns on toddlers and octogenarians or making the inmates go through nude body scanners.

No, that's strictly Talmudic, 'gino.....it's the only way to treat cattle.
