[back] Holocaust revisionism
Simon Wiesenthal wrote in 1975 that "there were no extermination camps on German soil."
[Buchenwald had variety shows, motion pictures, sporting contests and a brothel just like Auschwitz. It is interesting to see how many intellectuals were interned there, see here. They did the psyop Human skin lampshades here with Ilse Koch as the patsy. Buchenwald when liberated was about 1/5 Jewish.]

The internet video Buchenwald: A Dumb Dumb Portrayal of Evil (2008) makes the assertion that Psyche Warfare planted evidence at Buchenwald. Seeing Things by John Ellis (published by I.B. Taurus in 2000) mentions Billy Wilder forcing German audiences to watch footage of Buchenwald in order to receive bread rations. The movie Buchenwald: A Dumb Dumb Portrayal Of Evil Episode 2 points out that Wilder is actually in the Buchenwald footage, helping to direct. Buchenwald Flyer Sources
Hunt, Eric 'Holohoax Survivors Who Tell The Truth' has really hit a nerve. It's shocking to hear Auschwitz inmates tell about their elaborate stage, with curtain rings and a grand piano, where they had plays and other musical performances. It's shocking to see video of happy children playing in Theresenstadt juxtaposed with a woman telling about fun costumed children's plays in her Auschwitz block, along with arts and crafts activities, with beautiful children's murals painted on the walls. According to the official Holocaust narrative, all children were immediately gassed upon arrival! "Testimony" such as this is extremely important to cast doubt on the "factory of death" Holocaust promoters push. Auschwitz and Buchenwald inmates speak about being paid for their work in special currency, using their currency in camp cantinas and at the camp movie theater, receiving and sending postcards, and playing in well organized soccer tournaments.
Weber was the first person to publish a secret U.S. Army report on conditions in Buchenwald concentration camp written immediately after the capture of the camp by the Americans. This report differed in very, very many substantial ways from the official story about Buchenwald that was being put out by the American government at the time.

Furthermore, a number of Holocaust authorities have now publicly decreed that there were no gassings, no extermination camps in Germany after all! All these things, we are told, were located in what is now Poland, in areas captured by the Soviet Red Army and off-limits to Western investigators. In 1960 Dr. Martin Broszat, who is now director of the Munich-based Institute for Contemporary History, which is funded by the West German government to SUPPORT the Holocaust story, wrote a letter to the German weekly "Die Zeit" in which he stated categorically: "Neither in Dachau nor in Bergen-Belsen nor in Buchenwald were Jews or other prisoners gassed."(16) Professional Nazi-hunter Simon Wiesenthal wrote in 1975 that "there were no extermination camps on German soil."(17) And Dachau "gas chamber" No. 2, which was once presented to a stunned and grieving world as a weapon which claimed hundreds of thousands of lives, is now described in the brochure issued to tourists at the modern Dachau "memorial site" in these words: "This gas chamber, camouflaged as a shower room, was not used."(18) The Liberation of the Camps by Theodore J.

Rassinier entitled his first book The
Lies of Odysseus in commemoration of the fact that travellers always return
bearing tall stories, and until his death he investigated all the stories of
extermination literature and attempted to trace their authors. He made short
work of the extravagant claims about gas chambers at Buchenwald in David
Rousset's The Other Kingdom (New York, 1947); himself an inmate of Buchenwald,
Rassinier proved that no such things ever existed there (Le Mensonge d'Ulysse,
p. 209 ff) Rassinier also traced Abbé Jean-Paul Renard, and asked him how he
could possibly have testified in his book Chaines et Lumières that gas chambers
were in operation at Buchenwald. Renard replied that others had told him of
their existence, and hence he had been willing to pose as a witness of things
that he had never seen (ibid, p. 209 ff).
Rassinier also investigated Denise Dufournier's Ravensbrück.- The Women's Camp of Death (London, 1948) and again found that the authoress had no other evidence for gas chambers there than the vague "rumours" which Charlotte Bormann stated were deliberately spread by communist political prisoners. Similar investigations were made of such books as Philip Friedman's This was Auschwitz: The Story of a Murder Camp (N.Y., 1946) and Eugen Kogon's The Theory and Practice of Hell (N.Y., 1950), and he found that none of these authors could produce an authentic eye-witness of a gas chamber at Auschwitz, nor had they themselves actually seen one. Did Six Million Really Die? by Richard Harwood
All photographs of heaps of corpses were taken in Western camps around the end of the war, such as Dachau, Bergen-Belsen, and Buchenwald, where historians now agree no mass murders took place. Significantly, there are no such photographs taken at the camps in which mass murder is alleged to have occurred (Auschwitz, Treblinka, Belzec, Sobibor, Chelmno, Majdanek.) These eastern camps were all in areas which came under Soviet control at war's end. It is very telling that the Soviets released no pictures of mass graves or heaps of corpses and allowed no journalists, medical professionals, or other experts to examine the camps.

If Reitlinger's statement was a rearguard action, the statement of the Institut für Zeitgeschichte was a general retreat. What made it so sensational was that not only had a host of former inmates testified that "gassings" took place at concentration camps in the Reich, but several commandants of these camps even signed "confessions" affirming the existence of the alleged "gas chambers." At the Nuremberg IMT trial, the British Chief Prosecutor Sir Hartley Shawcross specifically cited Dachau, Buchenwald, Mauthausen, and Oranienburg as places where murder was "conducted like some mass production industry in the gas chambers and ovens."---Zeitgeschichte in Munich 1960 The Auschwitz Trial: A Judge Looks at the Evidence by Dr. Wilhelm Staeglich
Neither in Dachau nor Bergen-Belsen nor in Buchenwald were Jews or other inmates gassed. The gas chamber in Dachau was never finished and put into operation . . . The mass extermination of the Jews by gassing began in 1941/42, and occurred in a very few places, selected exclusively for the purpose and outfitted with the appropriate technical facilities, above all in occupied Polish territory (but nowhere in the German Reich proper).10
"It is true that there were no extermination camps on German soil and thus no
mass gassings such as those that took place at Auschwitz, Treblinka and other
camps. A gas chamber was in the process of being built at Dachau, but it was

October 1943 and deported to Germany, where he was held prisoner until the end

was profoundly distressed by the many lies and myths about the concentration
camps that were being circulated. He wrote:
"Then one day I realized that a false picture of the German camps had been created and that the problem of the concentration camps was a universal one, not just one that could be disposed of by placing it on the doorstep of the National Socialists. The deportees — many of whom were Communists — had been largely responsible for leading international political thinking to such an erroneous conclusion. I suddenly felt that by remaining silent I was an accomplice to a dangerous influence." Rassinier became increasingly skeptical of the reports of systematic killings of Jews in gas chambers:
"With regard to gas chambers, the almost endless procession of false witnesses and of falsified documents to which I have invited the reader's attention during this long study, proves, nevertheless, only 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. Did such exterminations take place without orders? This question has haunted me for 15 years."
The number of Jews who perished in Europe during the war years, he concluded, could not have been more than about 1.6 million. Paul Rassinier
From July 1943 until the end of the war, Morgen investigated some 800 cases
of corruption and murder within the SS, which resulted in about 200 trials. Five
concentration camp commanders were arrested, and two of them were shot. For
example, Buchenwald commandant Karl Koch was executed by the SS for corruption
and murder. After the war Morgen established himself as a successful attorney in
I quoted from Morgen's description of Buchenwald, where he lived for eight months:
"The prisoners were healthy, normally fed, sun-tanned, working ... The installations of the camp were in good order, especially the hospital. The camp authorities, under the Commander Diester, aimed at providing the prisoners with an existence worthy of human beings. They had regular mail service. They had a large camp library, even books in foreign languages. They had variety shows, motion pictures, sporting contests and even had a brothel. Nearly all the other concentration camps were similar to Buchenwald." (Source: IMT "blue series," Vol. 20, p. 490)
Morgen also explained the reason for the terrible conditions in the camps in the final months of the war, which resulted in the horrible scenes filmed by the British and Americans when they overran the camps:
"To a great extent the horrible conditions at times prevailing in some concentration camps did not arise from deliberate planning, but developed from circumstances which in my opinion must be called force majeure, that is to say, evils for which the local camp leaders were not responsible. I am thinking of the outbreak of epidemics. At irregular intervals many concentration camps were visited by typhoid fever, typhus, and other sicknesses caused especially by the arrival of prisoners from the concentration camps in the eastern areas. Although everything humanly possible was done to prevent these epidemics and to combat them, the death rates which resulted were extremely high. Another evil which may be considered as force majeure was the fluctuating numbers of new arrivals and the insufficient billets. Many camps were overcrowded. The prisoners arrived in a weakened condition because, due to air raids, the transports were under way longer than expected. Towards the end of the war, there was a general collapse of the transportation system. Supplies could not be carried out to the necessary extent; chemical and pharmaceutical factories had been systematically bombed, and all the necessary medicines were lacking. To top all, the evacuations from the East further burdened the camps and crowded them in an unbearable manner." (IMT "blue series," Vol. 20, pp. 498-499)  My Role in the [Ernst] Zündel Trial
