the Four Million Dead at Auschwitz

the Four Million Dead at Auschwitz

I'm new here and I've spent some time this morning, reading articles and leaving some comments.

 

One thing I ran across is the Holocaust denier meme "the Four Million Dead at Auschwitz."  I've always been curious about this meme, it ignores certain historical facts.

1) The original plaque never specified who the victims were, it always said "people" and never "Jews."

2) The Poles and Soviets refused to separate their dead, all were "victims of Fascism" and treated as such.

3) In relation to Auschwitz the Soviets never mentioned Jews during the IMT.

4) This number was generally rejected (Four Million) by Gerald Reitlinger and Raul Hilberg, both of whom placed the number at around a million dead and actually specified this as mostly Jews who died.

5) At the time of his trial Rudolf Hoess {the Commandant of Auschwitz) placed the number much closer to one million, later research later confirmed this number.

 

So, the number is a red herring used by Holocaust deniers to refute the number of Jewish dead, the reality is that the "Four Million" never specified Jews to begin with.

But that's my only comment on this. We should forget that old shit and concentrate on how to avoid the coming killing of hundreds of millions in the coming war some are preparing for the profit (?) of a few loonies...

Who cares if it was 1 million or 4 million or 6 million or even 6 billion?  Is 1 million any less bad, less callous, less despicable?  What makes 1 million more acceptable?
Jeffrey Kelly Added May 16, 2017 - 4:12pm
It doesn't, of course.  Any number is bad but Holocaust deniers seek to minimize the suffering of Jews and others in order to make National Socialism a viable option.

It's the agenda that counts, not the figure. It will be the same in the next war. History will say (if there will be history) that some wanted global control and therefore the "free" Western countries had to defend themselves. Collateral damage, by whatever means.
 
We know better but our voices will be gone, and history will - again - be written in favor of the winners. Whoever was wrong or right.

Do you know what was going on at that time?

How about this:
The Rwandan Genocide was wrong, those people didn't deserve to die because of their ethnic identity. 
The same with the destruction of Europe's Jews, the ethnic cleansing of Bosnia, the Armenian Genocide, etc., etc.  
 
No one deserves to die because of their ethnic identity.

The Rwandan Genocide was wrong, those people didn't deserve to die because of their ethnic identity. 
 
It had NOTHING to do with ethnicity. It had to do with colonial structure installed by the French, where a majority was marginalized. It had to do with Western propaganda bombing a mostly illiterate people with hate slogans.
 
And when people tell me ok, Africans are dumb anyway look at Yugoslavia were after Tito the same thing happened to white, apparently "educated" people which have been living together in peace before.
 
One person can be intelligent, but a mass is stupid. No matter which background. As I say, the layer of civilization is thin.
 
And every injustice will be paid back, just to be followed by another one sometime.
 
That's why we will never progress. We are our most enemy. Better believe it. If not, we'd be peacefully living together since we found out that we have a BRAIN.

I will, at some point, address the previous "Holocausts" of the Jewish people described in the link you provided.
 
But, to answer your question, yes, I do know what happened in 1906.  This was right after revolutions broke out in Russia.  I'll attach a link:

Pogroms broke out in Russia, threatening the lives of Jews there.  There were approximately 6 million Jews living in the Russian Empire, most of them situated in the Pale of Settlement.

So, what did the Soviets actually say about Auschwitz at Nuremberg?
 
"In only two camps of death the criminals exterminated 5 1/2 million people. In proof of this I quote the conclusions of the Extraordinary State Commission for Auschwitz. I will quote only a short excerpt. It is preceded by a detailed calculation. The Tribunal will find this reference on Page 356 of the document book, second column of the text, fourth paragraph. I begin the quotation:
"However, employing rectified coefficients for the part-time use of the crematorium ovens and for the periods when they stood empty, the technical expert commission has ascertained that during the period of time that the Auschwitz Camp existed the German butchers exterminated in this camp not less than 4 million citizens of the U.S.S.R., Poland, France, Yugoslavia, Czechoslovakia, Romania, Hungary, Bulgaria, Holland, Belgium, and other countries."
Not a word about Jews.

Jeffrey Kelly Added May 16, 2017 - 11:21pm
I don't think Billy actually read anything I posted.
Bill Kamps Added May 17, 2017 - 9:01am
Jeffery, since close to 100 million died in the war in total ( estimates of course ), it doesnt matter a lot how many died in the German camps.  All sides had a hand in the killing, and to say that one side was worse because of their motives, or because they lost they war, or because they started the war, is all besides the point.  There arent "just" killings in a war and "unjust" killings, there is just killing.
 
At least in WWII the Allies knew what they wanted to end the war.  These days we go to war and we dont even know what we want for a result.  We go to war with "terrorists", and then say we wont negotiate with "terrorists".  Since all wars need a political solution, that means all wars end in negotiation.  If we say we wont negotiate then either there is no end, or we have to kill everyone on the other side.  Neither is a practical.
 
Sun Tzu tells us, we need to know the desired outcome before we start the war.  War is just another way to get a negotiated settlement on better terms.  If we dont know the desired outcome when we start, ie Iraq, Afghanistan, ISIS, etc, we should not start. 
 
 
Jeffrey Kelly Added May 17, 2017 - 9:09am
Bill, it's unlikely that 100 million people died in the war.  
 
It does matter.  There is a vast difference in dying in combat or being caught up in military action (civilians) and dying as part of a genocidal action.  We also cannot forget the 2 million Soviet POWs that died between the Summer of 1941 and the Spring of 1942 or the disabled that the Nazi regime also murdered simply for being disabled.
 
No one denies that many people died in the war.  I do this because there are people out there that deny a percentage of those that did die their rightful due.
Billy Roper Added May 17, 2017 - 11:59am
Yes, I read your post. I would agree that Jews should not be counted as people. When the Communists first occupied Auschwitz and built the "gas chambers" there, after the war, they also tried to inflate the numbers of people who have died there. Whether the plaque says that the total four million original number noted were Jews, that 4 million number is what is used to come up with the six million which people in Europe are prosecuted and imprisoned for questioning. So, the red herring is used by Holohoax and Shoah business promoters, through their false claim that six million Jews (counting the 4 million total dead first claimed at Auschwitz) were snowflaked. I don't know how many Jews died during World War II, and neither do you. The Red Cross estimate was about a quarter million, most of them from Typhus. But if you say less than six million in many countries, you're going to jail. That's how desperate they are to keep up the charade.
Jeffrey Kelly Added May 17, 2017 - 1:08pm
@ Billy Roper:
"Yes, I read your post. I would agree that Jews should not be counted as people."
 
Oh, really?  Why not?
 
"When the Communists first occupied Auschwitz and built the "gas chambers" there, after the war,"
 
Actually, only Krema I was restored.  The Soviets and Poles left II-V and Bunkers I & II in the state the Germans left them in.  The Germans blew up these structures before they left the camp.
 
"they also tried to inflate the numbers of people who have died there."
 
They didn't "try," they did.  The Soviets falsely assumed that Auschwitz started killing people earlier than it actually did. You can read the link and what I posted to see how they came up with the numbers.
 
"Whether the plaque says that the total four million original number noted were Jews, that 4 million number is what is used to come up with the six million"
 
Oh, I'm sorry boyo but you are wrong.  Nuremberg established that four million Jews died in the camp system AS A WHOLE, not just Auschwitz:
 
"Thus, in this period of three years, according to the records of the then Governor General of Occupied Poland, between 2,400,000 and 3,400,000 Jews had been eliminated.
The total number of Jews who died by Nazi hands can never be definitely ascertained, It is known, however, that 4 million Jews died in concentration camps, and that 2 million Jews were killed by the state police in the East, making a total of 6 million murdered Jews. The source of these figures in Adolph Eichmann, Chief of the Jewish section of the Gestapo. The figures are contained in an affidavit made by Dr. Wilhelm Hoettl, Deputy Group Leader of the Foreign Section of the Security Section, AMT VI, of the RSHA. Hoettl, in his affidavit, states as follows:
"Approximately 4 million Jews had been killed in the various concentration camps, while an additional 2 million met death in other ways, the major part of which were shot by operational squads of the Security Police during the campaign against Russia."(2738-PS)."
 
This is what Nuremberg established as the number of Jewish dead at Auschwitz as a whole from 1942-1944:
 
"An official United States government report issued by the Executive Office of the president of the United States, War Refugee Board, on the German camps at Auschwitz and Birkenau, sets forth the number of Jews gassed in Birkenau in the two year period between April 1942 and April 1944. The figure printed in this report is not a typographical error. The number is 1,765,000. (L-22)"
 
That's too high based upon later research but it's still less than the "4 million" that deniers slobber on about.
 
Here's the link:
http://avalon.law.yale.edu/imt/chap_12.asp
 
Nuremberg also established an actual number of about 5.75 million dead but for some reason I can't find the link.  In any case the origin of the "six million" is Hoettl's statement.  The reality is that historians differ over the numbers, myself I think the total is around 5.5 million.
 
"which people in Europe are prosecuted and imprisoned for questioning."
 
Actual it's more about "hate speech" (the way I understand it) than numbers.  Myself, I disagree with "memory laws."  I say let nut jobs howl away in the void and don't give them publicity.
I've actually signed petitions requesting such laws be abolished.
 
BTW, do you feel the same about laws that criminalize Holdomor Denial or Armenian Genocide denial?  Or does it only piss you off when it's about dead Nazis?
 
"So, the red herring is used by Holohoax and Shoah business promoters, through their false claim that six million Jews (counting the 4 million total dead first claimed at Auschwitz) were snowflaked."
 
Aaawww, I'm sorry but you are still wrong. Read what I posted above.  BTW, the biggest snowflakes I see are Trump supporters and whiny Republicans.  Just sayin'.
 
"I don't know how many Jews died during World War II, and neither do you."
 
I've got a better idea than you do.  Obviously.
 
"The Red Cross estimate was about a quarter million, most of them from Typhus."
 
I actually answered this on a different thread but I'll answer again.  Those numbers are incomplete and only deal with deaths that took place in regular concentration camps.  The Nazis never allowed the Red Cross into the Polish Ghettos (though they did allow them into Terezin, the model ghetto established in Czechoslovakia.  They only allowed them in after a suitable cleanup that included deporting the

Bill Kamps Added May 17, 2017 - 4:41pm
Jeffery, to me there is a minor distinction between civilians caught up in a bombing campaign, the 80K who died in Hiroshima, and the ones sent to concentration camps.  A lot of the bombing was done with the knowledge that it had little military benefit, and was more a psych thing. To me it is a fairly thin moral distinction because we claim the bombing was necessary, while the concentration camps more obviously were not.
 
Fortunately none of it would be tolerated today.  The killing in the Mideast is at a tiny scale compared to WWII. 
Jeffrey Kelly Added May 17, 2017 - 4:48pm
I disagree with you, Bill.  The fact is that bombing has a military application, deliberately attempting to destroy an entire people does not.  The allies were not out to commit genocide against the German people.
 
Now, because of Pearl Harbor and the way the Japanese treated POWs and civilians made the war in the Pacific more personal to the US troops but there was no genocidal attempt (regardless of the rhetoric) to wipe out the Japanese to the last man, woman and child.

Jeffrey Kelly.  Here in the UK to deny the Holocaust itself is regarded as anti-Semitic therefore a criminal offence not the numbers specifically. I do believe this is part of the generally accepted definition of anti-Semitic as adopted by the UN. Not sure best to check. Anyhow war is war and each side will do whatever it has to by whatever method it thinks best to win. to quote WT Sherman War is cruelty. There is no use trying to reform it. The crueler it is, the sooner it will be over.

  Antisemitic means you are against the Jews. Its obvious. To deny the holocaust happened is to be on the side of truth and truth works in everyone's interest except those who own and operate the UN.

Is that an alternate fact?  I guess that would be Trump approved.
Actually, Holocaust deniers are on the side of a lie.  There are many reasons why deniers believe the way they do, antisemitism, Hitler-hero-worship, blind belief in any whackaloon conspiracy theory they can gravitate to (I've seen lots of deniers who are also 9-11 "truthers" and so forth), etc.  It's sort of sad, I don't really understand it but there you go.

How do lampshades and soap have anything to do with the Holocaust?
I'm surprised you didn't mention shrunken heads.  That's a denier favorite.   Are you not feeling well?

Why spend one minute of your time refuting or debating a Holocaust Denier?  As if it really matters the exact amount of dead Jews was some other number than 6 million. Even if the images of the gas chambers could we wiped away, one can read almost any speech by Hitler to realize how something like the Holocaust could happen.  Or just visit any Holocaust museum.  Billy Roper should be ignored, by giving him any of your time, you're simply feeding the beast.

All the above is true.  However, I find it offensive that creatures like Billy spread their vileness about the Internet.  Why should he...and others like him.....be free to spread their crap with no rebuttal?

Yeah, Free Speech sucks, right? That's why Jews try to pass laws against it, especially when it comes to discussing the Holohoax myth.
John Minehan Added May 20, 2017 - 12:20pm
It's interesting to me that the Holocaust and the mass civilian bombing of the Second World War both rested on theories, that were largely untested: Hitler's racial theory; and Douhet's  theories on strategic bombing.

Yep. And sociopaths are not the ones who are interested in the world. Rather in themselves....and that's what makes them so ignorant. Trump will probably do his holiday tour without too many problems, but he will returned having learned nada.

No, I'm not.  Autumn is providing a platform for others to write what they wish.  That is the beauty of free speech.  I've already voiced my opposition to "memory laws."
What I'm saying is that Billy's laughable assertions (and others like him) need to be answered, not ignored.

Worse than  genocide: ineffective and counterproductive.

I also oppose the genocidal attacks which the United States carries out against Middle Eastern nations, nor do I flinch away from WHY it is done: to balkanize and weaken Israel's neighbors and make Greater Israel possible. Syria's destruction will give (((them))) the Golan Heights, for example. Countdown until Trump puckers up against the wailing wall...5,4,3,2,1...

I don't have any interest in debating with Jews and their Shabbos Goy unless there is an audience which might benefit from witnessing their destruction, and an absence of censorship. Your forum lacks either. I also am too busy to take on another sandbox, sorry.

Billy, all you have to do is leave the offensive crap behind.  Argue with your evidence, not with the racist filth.  You can do that, right?  Or, is all you have is racist filth?  That shows a lack of intelligence along with a depressing ignorance of history.

I'm not.  But, it would be good to have some fresh voices on Skeptic.

Actually, fail on your part, Billy.  The director stated that Krema I was a reproduction, not a hoax.

Six million (approximately) during the entire course of the extermination program. The four million number was a Soviet estimate (an incorrect one) of the number killed only at Auschwitz.
