Cyanide at Auschwitz
Zyklon-B was used at Auschwitz, as an insecticide. It was vital in attempting to maintain hygiene that mattresses be deloused. Liquid hydrogen cyanide was adsorbed onto clay-type granules, designed to make the deadly gas as “safe” as it could be. If you go to Auschwitz today, you can’t see any authentic gas chambers. You see stone huts, and experts have testified that they could not have been used to gas people, owing to problems in sealing them up (Zyklon-B released its cyanide gas rather slowly).
In 1988 the scientific team of Fred Leuchter (a US execution-expert “Mr Death” in gas-chamber technology) visited Poland, and concluded that the Auschwitz “gas chambers” could not possibly have functioned in the alleged manner – i.e., they were not gas chambers. In the following years, others would confirm the accuracy of his seminal, “Leuchter Report” . The German chemist Germar Rudolf, who worked at the Max Plank institute for Solid State Physics, is now in jail, because he likewise measured the high levels of the cyanide in the walls of the de-lousing chambers. It happens that this gas bonds permanently with iron, and iron is present in all the cement etc of stone walls. Whereas, he found none in the walls of what were supposed to be the “gas chambers” which were mainly shower units. He thereby confirmed the work of Leuchter who likewise only found remains of the cyanide gas-insecticide in the de-lousing chambers.
After Rudolf’s report was published in 1993, he lost his job and was prevented from completing his doctorate, then a few years later he was given a jail sentence. He is now in a high-security prison near Stuttgart, for the crime of not finding cyanide in the “gas chambers,” echoing Leuchter’s cyanide residue investigations.  When a chemist is put in jail, for replicating the result of another – in Germany of all places, the nation which invented chemical procedure – then the farce cannot continue for much longer (The gas chambers were conveniently located east of Germany behind the Iron Curtain to make them inaccessible to westerners, which helped the myth to flourish).
The Leuchter results were almost too good to be true, with a three orders of magnitude difference between the cyanide levels in the delousing chamber walls (about one part per thousand) and those in the washing chambers (aka “gas chambers” ), around one part per million. They are not published in any peer-reviewed chemistry journal, for obvious reasons. The only way to hold a debate on this subject appears to be in a courtroom, while being prosecuted! It is hard to reach the calm condition necessary for replication of chemical measurements. Nonetheless people have replicated the fundamental result, and even folk with no interest in chemistry can appreciate the pretty blue colour on the outside of the de-lousing chamber (where the ferrocyanide has seeped right through the wall) and its complete absence around the so-called “gas chambers.” Let’s face it, the case is established: the cyanide poison was used where the German records state that it was used for delousing mattresses, clothing etc., whereas it was not used where the US and UK (at Nuremberg) alleged.
Tourists, thirty million of them, have filed through “Krema 1” at Auschwitz, with its piteous piles of shoes, etc of the dead. This was reconstructed after the war in 1946, a fact revealed 1992 by Dr. Franciszek Piper, the Senior Curator and Director of Archives of the Auschwitz State Museum. The historic remains from the camp are such things as shower-unit huts, a swimming pool and a morgue. There was a camp orchestra, and quite a collection of pictures from the camp art-classes,although these cannot be shown in Germany or Poland, on account of laws prohibiting the doubting of the Holocaust. Anne Frank of “Diary” fame came to the camp in 1944 with her father who was ill. He was put into the hospital there, and recovered, suggesting that he was decently looked after.
The “gas chambers” at Auschwitz had water pipes in their ceilings, indicating that they were designed as shower units. They generally lacked tight-seal doors, which would have been essential, even though these were easy to install – the Leuchter report cited the absence of such seals as one reason why the alleged “gas chambers” would never have functioned.
“The Final Solution” An Export Program
The “Final Solution” of Adolf Hitler retained a single meaning right through WW2, central to the program of “National socialism,” and signified the deportation of jews, generally eastwards to Poland and Russia. This program did not change at any point, e.g. the Wannsee conference of 1942,to signify deliberate extermination. If that practice ever happened, it was not a centrally-directed policy and did not involve gas chambers: many tons of documentation of “Third Reich” policies remains, and no-one has been able to find therein any hint of such a meaning of intentional genocide. The historical record fails to show any central decision to exterminate jews by “Nazi” Germany.
The Gestapo and Zionists were collaborating in the late 30s because they had in this respect similar aims.But, a German Foreign Office circular bulletin of June 22, 1937 stated that: “In view of the anti-German agitation of international jewry, Germany cannot agree that the formation of a Palestine jewish state would help the peaceful development of the nations of the world” .International jewish organisations twice declared war on Germany, in 1933 then again in 1939. As the “final solution” policywas thwarted by the Allies, the camps became places of hard labour; then under the impact of Allied terror-bombing ravages of disease and famine took place.
At the Auschwitz trial held at Frankfurt in the mid-sixties, the court had to conclude that it lacked “almost all the means or evidence available in a normal murder trial” including “the bodies of the victim, autopsy reports, expert reports on the cause of death, evidence as to the criminals, murder weapons, etc.” Far from leading to doubt, this gave to the mythic gas chambers a metaphysical status, doubt of which was forbidden. ‘ No documents have survived, perhaps none ever existed,’ concluded the Holocaust historian Léon Poliakov.
“In the case of the rush to impute to the ‘Nazis’ a programme for the extermination of millions of people which has implausibly left no material traces, all the normal rules of historiography seem not only to have been suspended, but to have been violated over and over again. Historians routinely cite documents from secondary works like Raul Hilberg’s The Destruction of the European Jews (1961) or from printed collections of documents, such as Robert Wolfe’s Holocaust: The Documentary Evidence – but they never cite original documents.
The nearest we have to primary-source documents concerning what went on within the camps, comes from the bulky, three-volume International Red Cross Report published in 1948. This and especially Volume III describes the couple of thousand regular, routine inspection-visits that its doctors made through the war years to the Polish labour-camps. Their report never hints at any gas-chamber, nor any mass-cremations. While maintaining a politically neutral position, it confirms that mortality in the camps was to a large extent caused by the allied terror-bombing.Likewise Winston Churchill’s bulky, six-volume account of the War gives no allusion to the subject, especially volume Six, Triumph and Tragedy where one would expect to have some allusion if he believed it had happened.
The head of the SS camp administration office sent a directive dated Dec. 28, 1942, to Auschwitz and the other concentration camps. It sharply criticized the high death rate of inmates due to disease, and ordered that “camp physicians must use all means at their disposal to significantly reduce the death rate in the various camps.” Furthermore, it ordered: “The camp doctors must supervise more often than in the past the nutrition of the prisoners and, in cooperation with the administration, submit improvement recommendations to the camp commandants … The camp doctors are to see to it that the working conditions at the various labor places are improved as much as possible.” The directive stressed that “the Reichsfuhrer SS [Heinrich Himmler] has ordered that the death rate absolutely must be reduced.”A further letter to all concentration camp commanders dated 20th January, 1943, reaffirmed that “every means must be used to lower the death rate.” By September 1943 Auschwitz still had mortality peaking at 80/day, viewed as “catastrophic” by the SS administration. Thus, from authentic documents concerning the need to reduce fatalities at the Auschwitz camp, the world has moved to a belief in genocide, with not a single authentic, supporting document. The Auschwitz camp was set up as an industrial plant using the giant coalfields of Poland, and located at the confluence of rivers; it was essential to the war-effort – it would have made no sense to start exterminating its inmates.
The Hamburg judge Wilhelm Staeglich had been positioned near Auschwitz during the war and had on various occasions dropped into the camps around there. The conditions seemed fairly tolerable, he recalled, and certainly nothing resembling an extermination program existed. In particular, he had discerned no fear of mistreatment amongst the inmates. He published a testimony to this effect in 1973, and in return for his shocking news a German inquisition forced him to resign his job, stripped him of his doctoral degree, and banned his book. He was then subjected to police raids. His book, translated into English, is an essential text.
German military radio messages were successfully decrypted at Bletchley Park using the “enigma” codebreaker. Concerning the labour camps, over the period Spring 1942-February 1943, the following information was obtained:
“The return from Auschwitz, the largest of the camps with 20,000 prisoners, mentioned illness as the main cause of death, but included references to shootings and hangings. There were no references in the decrypts to gassings.”
That seems clear enough – though no-one took any notice of it at Nuremberg.
Bodies were disposed of by individual cremation, and the records for coke fuel consumption over the period February 1942 – October 1943 for the cremation ovens indicate that around five thousand bodies were then burnt. That accords with the number of registered, deceased inmates, viz those who had died from natural causes, who had to be cremated rather than buried because of the great typhoid epidemics. This suggests that no mass-incineration of bodies took place. Josef Kramer, a supervisor at the Auschwitz camp, gave a statement after the war which is recommended by Professor Butz as probably genuine: it had 350-500 deaths per week happening over May-November 1944, all from natural causes, a very high figure because sick prisoners were sent there, and the dead were all cremated. He believed the camp held up to 100,000 prisoners, mainly Poles and Russians.
Not only is there no trace of “Third Reich” documentation for what is alleged, but no photographs exist showing anything resembling such a group-gassing procedure. Do you believe that jews both male and female stripped then marched into the gas chambers, then were hauled out in piles? If so, are you willing to believe that neither the very-thorough Germans nor the clever jews wanted or were able to get a single picture of this ultimate horror? Go to Google and search – you’ll find rows of emaciated bodies, dead of typhus, will that do? I don’t think so.
US air-photographs taken in 1944 (released in 1978) when the “program” was supposed to be in full swing do not show any huge crematoria burning corpses nor queues entering the “gas chambers”:
“The few air photos of Auschwitz-Birkenau known to date from the period of December 1943 to February 1945 show no signs of fuel depots, smoke from chimneys or open fires, burning pits or pyres. The photos were altered: Zyklon B input hatches, groups of inmates, and walls around crematoria were retouched onto the photo negatives. […] To this day there is no air photo evidence to support the alleged mass murder of the jews at any location in Europe occupied by the Germans during World War Two […] That the photos in western hands were altered in order to incriminate Germany, and were first published by the CIA, is also very significant indeed.” 
The Fabrication of Untruth
Let’s hear a couple of testimonies concerning the dreaded gas-chambers. An Austrian woman, Maria Van Herwaarden, testified about her camp experiences in a Toronto District Court in March 1988, as she had been interned in Auschwitz-Birkenau in 1942 for having sexual relations with a Polish forced laborer. On the train trip to the camp, a Gypsy woman told her and the others that they would all be gassed at Auschwitz. Upon arrival, Maria and the other women were ordered to undress and go into a large concrete room without windows to take a shower. The terrified women were sure that they were about to die. But then, instead of gas, water came out of the shower heads. Auschwitz was no vacation center, Maria confirmed, and she witnessed the death of many fellow inmates by disease, particularly typhus, and quite a few committed suicide. But she saw no evidence at all of mass killings, gassings, or of any extermination program.A jewish woman named Marika Frank arrived at Auschwitz-Birkenau from Hungary in July 1944, when 25,000 jews were supposedly gassed and cremated daily. She likewise testified after the war that she heard and saw nothing of “gas chambers” during the time she was interned there. She heard the gassing stories only later.
The Allied carpet-bombing destroyed the supply lines for the Camps, and so the death-toll mounted from famine and disease. Leaflets were dropped from the air, alleging that at Auschwitz a “final solution” /extermination of jews policy was being conducted, using gas.  That was the genesis of the story, as those Allied-propaganda leaflets were believed. Greeted by the sight of rows of famished jews who had died of e.g. typhoid, it was not hard to see its confirmation. “Far from it being common knowledge in Germany that people were being gassed […] the vast majority of Germans were horrified by the United Nations accusations and they protested that they had never heard of such acts until after the cessation of hostilities when they had begun listening to United Nations broadcasts.” Since the British Broadcasting Corporation had been broadcasting these accusations regularly for many months before the end of the war, those Germans who had “common knowledge” of the gassing before the war’s end most likely got this “knowledge” from the BBC! The gas-chamber legend was born in December 1941, when the German author Thomas Mann declared on the BBC that in German hospitals the severely wounded, the old and the feeble were culled with poison gas. This was the “first appearance of gas chambers in propaganda.” 
As to how the stories got going, here is a remark by Faurisson: “The Foreign Office saw the new rumors of the Second World War only as jewish inventions, and many in American circles shared that conviction. Edward Beneš, President of Czechoslovakia (in exile in London), announced in November 1942, after inquiry by his staff, that the Germans, contrary to what had been reported to him, were not exterminating the jews. The “American” jew, Felix Frankfurter, a Supreme Court judge, stated to Jan Karski on the subject: “I can’ t believe you.” In August of 1943, Cordell Hull, Secretary of State, warned the U.S. ambassador in Moscow by telegram that in planning a joint Allied statement on “the German crimes in Poland“, it would be advisable to eliminate any mention of the gas chambers, since, as the British pointed out, there was “insufficient evidence” in the matter
The Hoax of Nuremberg
A modern inquiry needs to start from the data-fabrication at Nuremberg by the US/UK, using systematic assassination and torture of witnesses. The Nuremberg trials started in 1946 with the image of six million dead as firmly established.This did not emerge as a conclusion from the trials, but in its immensity it was presented to the tortured and/or beaten“Nazis” as a fact, and would they confess their part in it? All the main defendants at Nuremberg insisted that prior to the trial they had not known of any mass murder of jews: except that Rudolf Höss, the former Commandant of Auschwitz, signed on March 15, 1946, a document averring that he had overseen the slaughter of two and a half million jews, and this was read out on 15th April at Nurnberg. That day signified the birth of Auschwitz’s horror-myth. Two weeks earlier, Hoess had remarked:
“Certainly, I signed a statement that I killed two and half million jews. I could just as well have said it was five million jews. There are certain methods by which any confession can be obtained, whether it is true or not.”
Decades later, an account was published of how Hoess had been tortured for three days and nights without sleep by a British army team in order to extract that statement.In a letter to his wife, Hoess apologised for his “confessions” and explains that they had been extracted from him under torture. The victorious Allies could not have their “truth” come out at Nuremberg, without the assistance of torture. In 2001, Patricia Meehan discussed the network of secret “Direct Interrogation Centres” the British had set up in their occupational zone of Germany– torture chambers, to prepare “evidence” for the upcoming trials. A Zionist influence was noted at the Nuremberg trials,not least concerning the figure of six million.
Weighty books are in print as memorials to “the Holocaust,” but, let’s hear a sceptical view from Down Under:
“Yet in the case of the Holocaust, the dearth of material evidence for the existence of large-scale extermination programme is not perceived as significant. It is assumed that the ‘Nazis’ destroyed their vast death machinery so thoroughly as to preclude all possibility of postwar detection. It is not permissible to express doubts as to whether the ‘Nazis’ could really have eliminated all material evidence so completely, including making the ashes of six million people vanish from the locations at which they must have been interred. To think such doubts is to engage in thought crime.”
“The reality, therefore, is that the bulk of the ‘ evidence’ for the Holocaust derives from a corpus of documents that was expressly manufactured by the OSS and OCC in 1945-46 for the purpose of incriminating the leaders of the former German government at Nuremberg. The procedure went roughly along these lines: the Documentation Division in Paris created ‘ copies’ (in English only), certified them as true, and sent them to the prosecution in Nuremberg, while the original documents (if they ever existed) were never seen or heard of again. German translations of the original English texts were then prepared and sent to the defense in Nuremberg, where they arrived as late as possible so that the defense had insufficient time to worry about such matters as their authenticity.”
“Starting in May 1945 with the alleged suicides of SS-General Hans-Adolf Prützmann, SS head Heinrich Himmler and SS-General Odilo Globocnik while in British captivity, there followed a bizarre string of murders of individuals associated with the Auschwitz concentration camp. (These were perpetrated by a Jewish hit squad known as the DIN.) As Joseph Bellinger, author of a new book on Himmler’s murder, points out, within six months or so of the war’s end practically any one who could have shed light on the jewish policy of the Third Reich was murdered!”
This, it must be said, was extremely convenient for the prosecution at Nuremberg.
At Nuremberg, the German war-generals as well as being tortured had their wives arrested, to dissuade them from making inappropriate remarks in court. They were kept in solitary confinement to prevent their comparing notes, as each was presented with the Great Untruth and asked to believe it. Finally, most of them were hanged, by a court which felt free to invent new laws, and to act as prosecutor, judge, lawyer and executioner: American justice!
At Nuremberg, invoices for the delivery of Zyklon-B were presented as evidence for human “gassings.” The normal, routine purpose and function of the Zyklon-B as an insecticidewas more or less completely omitted: the manufacture of the ten-cubic metre “gaskammer” (gas chambers) by the firm DEGESCH, for which the Zyklon-B was designed in order to delouse clothes and bedding, as part of the great struggle against typhus, was overlooked. Throughout the German labour-camps these chambers – installed in 1942 when the scourge of typhus arrived – consumed tons of Zyklon-B, and they can still today be visited, in the camps of Majdanek and Auschwitz, their walls a deep turquoise-blue due to saturation with iron-cyanide. These chambers are a lot smaller than the ones which tourists are taken round as alleged-human gas chambers.
At Nuremberg, the “gas chamber” illusion was perpetrated by conflating two different types of chamber. The little disinfection-rooms were properly designed with efficient fans, tight-fitting doors, heaters to make the Zyklon-B evaporate quickly, and ducts and tall chimneys to remove the deadly gas. The morgues were the opposite – long, cold and damp, built partly below ground to keep them cool, having only slow ventilation, no holes in the roof for you-know-what, and a large table down the middle for laying stiffs on, prior to their being taken to the cremation ovens next door. These morgues (or sometimes a washroom), were strangely re-imagined as human gas chambers, while the actual, real, working gas-chambers became forgotten. Such phantoms became alluded to as “Kremas,” a vague term suitable for rooms that never existed.
Coming of the Truthseekers
In the postwar years, anyone claiming to have a personal memory of the German gas-chambers would be liable to have Paul Rassinier turn up on their doorstep. Having himself experienced the Buchenwald camp he was far from being a fan of the “Nazis;” but, neither was he prepared to endure fabricated stories on the subject. He spent years travelling about Europe with his tape-recorder and questions, but always he found that the witnesses came out with “evasions or palpable lies,” and his published report concluded:
“With regard to the gas chambers, the almost endless procession of false witnesses and of falsified documents to which I have drawn the reader’s attention during this long study, proves, nevertheless, one thing: never at any moment did the responsible authorities of the Third Reich intend to order – or in fact order – the extermination of the jews in this or any other manner.”
That bold conclusion (for which he was, naturally, jailed) kick-started the “revisionist” movement! We may here note that the money which the FRG keeps paying out to “holocaust survivors” does enormous damage here, in stimulating “memories” and generating such averred cases.
Robert Faurisson investigated the configuration of the alleged Auschwitz “gas chambers,” then Zundelgot to hear of this. At a historic 1985 trial in Toronto, witnesses were grilled for the first time ever over the existence of the alleged “gas chambers,” and it was found that no such testimony would stand up. On the fourth day of this trial, a marvellous climax was reached when Zundel’s lawyer Doug Christie put these questions to a top “Holocaust” expert Dr Raul Hillberg, author of the multi-volume, multi-edition work, The Destruction of the European Jews:
Christie: Can you give me one scientific report that shows the existence of gas chambers anywhere in Nazi-occupied territory?
Hilberg: I’m at a loss.
Christie: You are [at a loss] because you can’t. I want one report, before, during or after the war that shows that someone was killed by the use of those gases.
Hilberg: You want an autopsy [report] and I know of no autopsy.
– he could not cite one scientific report! That surely remains the case today; as likewise he could provide no evidence for a single death as diagnosed due to cyanide poisoning, even though the symptoms of this are quite distinctive.
Faurisson was an advisor to Zundel in this trial, and a subsequent one, and this duo just kept on winning the arguments. The prosecution could come up with no credible witnesses for a gas-chamber’s existence:
“in 1988, during the second trial against Ernst Zündel, the public prosecutor deemed it prudent to abandon any recourse to witnesses. Canadian justice had apparently understood the lesson of the first trial: there were no credible witnesses to the existence and operation of the ‘Nazi gas chambers.’ Little by little, every other country in the world has learned this same lesson. At the trial of Klaus Barbie in France, in 1987, there was talk about the gas chambers of Auschwitz but no one produced any witnesses who could properly speak about them. All the while in France, during several revisionist trials, Jewish witnesses sometimes came to evoke the gas chambers but none of them testified before the court as to having seen one or having participated in a homicidal gassing by hauling bodies out of the ‘gas chambers.’
“Today, gas chamber witnesses are making themselves extremely scarce and the Demjanjuk trial in Israel, which once again has revealed how much false testimony is involved in the matter, has contributed to the suppression. Several years ago, it happened that I was aggressively questioned at the rear of a law court by elderly jews who presented themselves as ‘living witnesses to the gas chambers of Auschwitz’, showing me their tattoos. It was necessary for me only to ask them to look me in the eyes and to describe for me a gas chamber that inevitably they retorted: ‘How could I do this? If I had seen a gas chamber with my own eyes I would not be here today to speak with you; I myself would have been gassed also.’”
The study of history cannot exist without dissenting views, and who would want to read a history journal that did not allow this? One fails to understand why “revisionism” should be reprehensible, and jews especially should be relieved to discover that their ancestors were never subject to such a horror. Bestselling author David Irving, who has written over a dozen books on WWII, was recently jailed. His definitive, 700- page blockbuster Hitler’s War gave no hint that the Fuhrer ever got to hear of a gas chamber, or gave any extermination command! Irving is known for the care with which he checks out his primary-source material. In 1991 his publisher, Macmillan, destroyed all their copies of his books. Irving has paid quite a price for the truth he discovered.
In November 1991 Fred Leuchter was about to speak at Chelsea Town Hall (invited by David Irving), when he was arrested onstage by the police at the request of the Board of Deputies of British jews, and deported back to the United States. So much for freedom of speech. When his trailblazing “Leuchter Report” was first published in 1989, the House of Commons denounced it as “‘Nazi’ propaganda” and a “fascist publication” (on July 20th, with 100 MPs voting). Even the House of Commons, however, cannot alter the laws of chemistry: the durability of the ferrocyanide ion is now pivotal to the Holocaust debate!
We are not likely to get important insights unless the “thought crime” penalty is lifted from the German people, and they are allowed to review their own past. The definitive modern textbook, Dissecting the Holocaust has chapters by some twenty different authors over six hundred pages.In 1995 the German Government demanded that all copies be confiscated and burnt!Edited by Germar Rudolf, it draws its inspiration from the pioneer labours of Ernst Zundel. While in Tennessee and publishing “revisionist” material, he was seized by the police and thrown into solitary confinement in a Canadian jail. After two years he was transferred to Germany, where his trial now progresses. He recently (October 2006) read to the court an open letter from the Iranian president to Germany’s chancellor – to the judge’s fury. The letter said, in effect, that Germany had been on its knees before Zion for fifty years and it was time to get up.
Forbidden Doubt and Fictional Horror
Doubt anything in our modern world, scoff at sacred texts, no-one will care – except that one kind of doubt is forbidden to you, which will land you in jail… in ten different nations! You can read the Hammer-horror account in, e.g., Auschwitz by Lawrence Rees (2005): every hour or so, a thousand naked jews were marched (somehow) into a room with space for maybe one or two hundred, the doors are locked, then the Zyklon-B is poured down special chutes or holes in the ceiling (which did not exist in the war, they were added later), then after the screaming stops “powerful fans” remove the poison gas. In your dreams, Mr Rees. There were no such powerful fans. But, then what? The mass of bodies will be mixed up with the Zyklon-B, and that is specifically designed to keep emitting the cyanide gas slowly. How is anyone supposed to shovel out this tortured mass of corpses mixed up with poison powder? Remember there are only ordinary-sized doors, mostly opening inwards. Its an unthinkable nightmare that could not possibly have worked, and would certainly have gassed any workers trying to operate it. It is the “safe” design of this insecticide material, which would have prevented it from functioning in this deliriously-imagined manner.
No German government existed after the war, that was the “unconditional surrender” which the Allies demanded. By losing both its senior military staff and government, Germany was in effect decapitated – necessary for the illusory version of events to be perpetrated. The verdicts of Nuremberg were made final and binding for the postwar FRG. Germany has since paid a hundred billion Deutschmarks to Israel by way of Holocaust-compensation. Germany should take the advice of Iranian leader Ahmadinajad and stop paying it, because that funding provides undue motivation for holocaust “memories.” Germany is helping to maintain the holocaust legend, by thus aiding the state of Israel.
The United Nations has now established its annual Holocaust Remembrance Day on 27 January, as of 2006. On this anniversary, we all need to mull over the faking of history and the Greatest Lie Ever Told. As Perseus gazed at the Medusa only via a mirror, to avoid being petrified, to too we need calm reflection and the power of Truth to avoid our collective destruction.
