Origin of the 5 million non-Jews killed in holocaust lie

Postby Carto's Cutlass Supreme » 8 years 6 months ago (Mon Mar 07, 2011 2:42 am)

According to Deborah Lipstadt, the often heard 5 million non Jews and 6 million Jews, comes from Simon Wiesenthal who just made it up. I saw the link at the IHR to Lipstadt's review of Tom Segev's bio on Wiesenthal.

When Israeli historians Yehuda Bauer and Yisrael Gutman challenged Wiesenthal on this point, he admitted that he had invented the figure of eleven million victims in order to stimulate interest in the Holocaust among non-Jews. He chose five million because it was almost, but not quite, as large as six million. When Elie Wiesel asked Wiesenthal who these supposed five million victims were, Wiesenthal exploded and accused him of suffering from "Judeocentrism." In recent months, Wiesenthal's concoction has been further improved upon by a group of rabbis and imams who visited Auschwitz under the aegis of the US State Department. The statement they issued after their visit referred to the "twelve million victims, six million Jews and six million non-Jews." Now we have parity. One wonders what's next.

Segev, for his part, explains away Wiesenthal's invention of the "eleven million" as his means of stressing "the brotherhood of all the victims," something Jews generally fail to do. He lauds Wiesenthal for "judg[ing] people by their deeds and merits rather than by their group affiliation. This was the basis for his humanistic views and his faith in justice. It was the basis for his belief in good and his longing for conciliation."

I think this is closely enough related to stay in the same thread, but I'm willing to move it if people object.

I have read in various places that even the believers among historians today don't take the six million figure seriously, merely paying the lip service to it that the rest of the world must, and in a book review in Inconvenient History of Holocaust: The Nazi Persecution and Murder of the Jews, by Peter Longerich, Thomas Dalton comments:
Finally, what was, to me, the most surprising omission: the 'six million' is nowhere to be found. Not once does Longerich mention this number, so vital to the orthodox account that the powers-that-be are willing to mete out prison sentences and book-burnings for those who dispute it. And it's not that he has an alternative figure; he simply offers none at all. On a couple of occasions I found mention of "millions" of Jewish deaths—but how are we to take this? If it's 'two millions,' then Longerich is in for trouble. Whatever he has in mind, I think revisionists should take heart here: the absence of the sacred touchstone may portend a future backing-down, and thus yet another concession to revisionism.

Does anyone have any other evidence to support this thesis?

As Segev shows, Wiesenthal's account of his experiences during the years of the Holocaust is clearly fabricated
from the link CCS posted.

Are they now going to close those horrendous hate "centers"? Give back any of the money? Apologize for attacking the Germans? Will the media pick up on this and continue to bring down this repulsive character? Didn't think so

Postby Carto's Cutlass Supreme » 8 years 6 months ago (Mon Mar 07, 2011 1:56 pm)

I think I looked up holocaust in World Book Encyclopedia and it said 5 million non-Jews. Lipstadt gives other major figures who repeated that, like Jimmy Carter's committee or something like that.

But I remember seeing in the movie "One Third Of The Holocaust" about an April 1945 congressional committee hearing, Presided by Emmanuel Celler and another congressman, and in it Joseph Thon's speech where Thon mentions 15 million people of which 6 million were Jews. So some level of this was there from the beginning. It's just could there really be that many Roma, Sinta, Jehovah's Witnesses, and homosexuals? It's such a muddled story! haha.

The other thing is the forgiveness of lying with Weisenthal. It reminds me of the forgiveness of Irene Zisblatt by that Michigan professor. Or the forgiveness of Wiesel because "conceptually it's true." Or "some things are true that never happened." I mean contrary to what people think, there is a lot of forgiveness in that community. LOL.

I looked up "holocaust" and "concentration camp" in World Book Encyclopedia. A huge reference for middle school and high school. Both entries made Wiesenthal's fabricated lie have more of a researched feel, saying something like "although the exact amount can never be known it is believed that 11 million died in which 6 million were Jews." There you have it: 5 million non-Jews.

Just here on this forum i have stressed many times that historians don't care about this number, though as a matter of fact, it is written in public's mind, and in jewish sensibilities, therefore, Historians don't bother to contest publically and loudly its public existance neither. This 6 millions is a shortcut, based on thin air, but that does not mean that the magnitude of the disaster is that wrong. Public Opinion relies often on such shortcuts regarding historical events. And So do the revisionists when they stick with their obsession regarding this number.
The famous " 6 millions - 2 millions = 6 millions" is as stupid and based on thin air as the 6.000.000 figures itself.

It is comprehensible that the " Holocaust industry" sticks with the figure, because you have to keep it simple for the general public. I guess most of you don't consider "advbertising" on TV as "scienfific documentaries", do you ?
Hilberg estimate never got over 5.100.000...But a genocide should not be defined by the numbers of victims, which are often unknown precisely. And that is valid with all "Shoah's", not only the jewish one!

And by the way, it is quite rare to find Wiesenthal's name in any serious scientific research on the subject.

If I recall correctly, it was originally claimed that 6,000 persons died in the WTC attacks. Today, it is claimed that the actual death toll is roughly half that. Now, If the public or media figures were to say today in 2011 that 6,000 persons died in the WTC on 9/11, would that be considered a mere "shortcut?" No, of course not - that would be a gross error, and it would be quickly pointed out as such. Since establishment historians and revisionists both agree that the six million figure is incorrect, they should both inform the public that this is indeed the case. After all, people shouldn't continue believing in things that are simply not true...right?

Cloud,

I don't think one can compare an isolate incident like 9/11 and a process like the Holocaust that has been carry on during 4 years in different manners. As far as i remember, when i saw the tower tumbling down, i thought the dead tolls would be in the 10's of thousands...the whole day, the number got more precise (and yes more suspiscious), and the 3600 +- were quickly established.

You know just like all of us that the first "russian estimates" were 4.000.000 for Birkenau; 1.500.000 for Majdenek...numbers that were spread around the world by the Communist press and papers. of course, they did not insist on the Jewishness of the victims...But still we have already more than 5.500.000 just for those two camps alone ! It would be interresting to sum up the russian estimates of 45, btw.
From there, two things
- Those figures were even superior than the Jewish organization estimates
- Those figures did not last very long (at least in the west).
- In this regards, Hillberg cut the number by more than a half.

But more important, those fantasy numbers does not mean that no one was killed in those camps...

Since establishment historians and revisionists both agree that the six million figure is incorrect, they should both inform the public that this is indeed the case.


The agreement stops there, i am affraid. But that what is done, already...Anyone who cares to read good researches won't find this figure, but a whole range of estimates. Historians are not popstars or politicians. They do conferences and speeches in front of a hundred people (when famous) or a few dozens of students (most of the times), publish books (when famous), articles in specialized revues (most of the time)...that is all they can do...I would add that Historians are not meant to be famous, their goal is to have their work recognized by his peers...I personnally would not trust a lot any Historian who keeps being invited on TV shows to spread his words...
I think again, you are confusing the Holocaust industry which is not meant to make new discoveries, and most of the time prevent questions from being asked and Historical researches, which most of the time are anonymous, rarely translated in foreign languages...and even difficult to find on the net...Historical science is not popular, and scientifical articles most of the times just bore the public...and certainly are not available at Barnes and Nobel...

Hmm. Balsamo want's to discuss the alleged '6,000,000' while the thread is about the additionally alleged '5,000,000 others'. No subject changing, Balsamo.

Knowing that the 'grand total' claimed is at least 11,000,000 makes the lack of human remains even more obvious. 11,000,000 claimed murders and a not single mass grave as alleged can be shown, not one.
And, the storyline claims that these 'others' were supposedly murdered using the same methods as the fictitious '6,000,000 Jews'. So, essentially, the impossibility of the gassings and cremations of Jews as alleged is now doubled, which simply makes the laughable claims even more ridiculous ... if that's possible.

Balsamo, do you believe in the magic German 'gas chambers'?

from a previous thread:
Hannover wrote:Remember that the alleged grand total is actually 11,000,000-12,000,000. These 'others' were supposedly killed in the same manner as the Jews. Imagine, 12 million bodies and they cannot show us one mass grave commensurate with the storyline. Not one. In a real court of law, among other things, the murder weapon and methods alleged would be examined closely. The only forensic report on the alleged weapon submitted at Nuremberg was a detailed Soviet document which claimed that the Germans used a steam chamber for mass murder ... a steam chamber..

The onus is upon the accusers to present the proof. Revisionists simply look at what has been presented and expose the impossible absurdity of it all.

It's all so easy.

· Underground mass extermination in enormous rooms, by means of high voltage electricity;[8]

· Killing in vacuum chamber or with steam or chlorine gas;[9]

· Mass graves with hundreds of thousands of bodies, removed without a trace within a few weeks; a true miracle of improvisation on the part of the Germans;[10]

You gotta love Balsamo's use of shyster Hilberg to buttress the moronic 'holocaust', see;

see Hilberg sliced & diced here:

'fraudulent historian Hilberg exposed in court'
http://forum.codoh.com/viewtopic.php?t=100

Revisionists are just the messengers, the absurdity of the 'holocaust' fraud is the message.

But it's worse than that. Their own claims deny it. Of the 1.1M allegedly killed at Auschwitz a whole 1M were Jews, and for Treblinka the disproportion is even huger: IIRC something like 2,000 non-Jewish victims acknowledged. They can't tell you anything about the "other" 5M: not who they were or where they died. It's just occasionally repeated for propaganda by, usually, uninformed persons. It's become an embarrassment to the Industry, who are concerned to emphasise the Jewish exclusivity of the Big H. Suppose they had to demand reparations for the "survivors" of the 5M? They don't acknowledge them in any of their memorial centres, and I don't think they get a mention in "Holocaust education".

As has been commented earlier: if 6M/5M refers to total losses, it is far too low for the non-Jews; if it refers only to those deliberately murdered in an alleged racial Holocaust there is no way they could ever remotely approach the 5M figure. (Leaving 6M out of the discussion.)
