This is what happened to Germans who didn't support the 'Holocaust' narrative:
Birkenau Commandant Josef Kramer was ultimately hanged:I have heard of the allegations of former prisoners in Auschwitz referring to a gas chamber there, the mass executions and whippings, the cruelty of the guards employed and that all this took place either in my presence or with my knowledge. All I can say to all this is that it is untrue from beginning to end.
Julius Streicher wasn't even a member of the military nor did he take part in planning the 'Holocaust'. He was hanged for statements such as these:To this day I do not believe that 5 million were killed. I consider it technically impossible that that could have happened. I do not believe it. I have not received proof of that up until now.
SS Ernst Kaltenbrunner was also hanged for his "denial":Show me one of those men or any of those orders. It is utterly impossible.
...as was SS Hans Aumeier:I know nothing about any gas chambers and no detainee was gassed during my tour of duty.
Alfred Rosenberg was hung, as well:But that there was an order for the individual annihilation of the entire Jewry, I could not assume... it was not interpreted as an individual extermination, an individual annihilation of millions of Jews.
It gets even deeper:
- Auschwitz Commandant Richard Baer was the only defendant who did not appear at the Frankfurt Auschwitz Trial in 1963. Though in perfect health, he died "in a highly mysterious way" while in prison before the trial had begun. This is of particular interest because a Paris newspaper had recorded his insistence that "during the whole time in which he governed Auschwitz, he never saw any gas chambers nor believed that such things existed," and from this statement nothing would dissuade him.
- Deputy Commandant Gustav Franz Wagner lived in Brazil after the war. After Simon Wiesenthal initiated a hunt for a man falsely identified as him, the real Wagner voluntarily handed himself over to the Brazil special police. Wagner reportedly told police “I never saw any gas chamber at Sobibor”. A year later Wagner allegedly committed suicide by stabbing himself to death in the bathroom of his rural home.
- There were also mysterious pre-trial "suicides" of Joseph Goebbels, Heinrich Himmler, Adolf Hitler, Odilo Globocnik and several others.
As over-cited as he may be, Rudolf Hoess probably deserved better than what he got:Psychologically I was almost cut in pieces. They wanted to know all about everything, and this was also done by Jews. They left me in no doubt whatever as to the fate that was in store for me.
Whatever they did to him, it worked. He blamed himself for crimes he wasn't even aware of:Since I was Commandant of the extermination camp Auschwitz I was totally responsible for everything that happened there, whether I knew about it or not. Most of the terrible and horrible things that took place there I learned only during this investigation and during the trial itself. I cannot describe how I was deceived, how my directives were twisted, and all the things they had carried out supposedly under my orders.
Oswald Pohl dealt with similar problems:As result of the brutal physical mistreatment in Nenndorf and my treatment in Nuremberg, I was emotionally a completely broken man. I was 54 years old. For 33 years I had served by country without dishonor, and I was unconscious of any crime.
Pohl had to say about the general character of postwar trials against German leaders:It was obvious during the Dachau trials, and it also came out unmistakably and only poorly disguised during the Nuremberg trials, that the prosecution authorities, among whom Jews predominated, were driven by blind hatred and obvious lust for revenge. Their goal was not the search for truth but rather the annihilation of as many adversaries as possible.
Both Pohl and Hoess were executed by hanging.
Once subsequently-tried German officials "got the picture", the only dependable option became acknowledging 'extermination' while denying involvement. This became the standard for SS confessions.
