10 newspapers from 1915-1938 before the Holocaust even happened.
Why Six Million?
How do we know the number?
Everyone knows that six million Jews died in the Holocaust. How do we know it? Because everybody else knows it. The figure has been accepted as accurate and without question since as long ago as 1945. But are not this universal knowledge, certainty and immutability rather unique? How many Ukrainians died in the Second World War? How many civilians died in the sieges of Leningrad and Stalingrad or in the bombing of Tokyo? How many have died in the 2003 invasion of Iraq and its consequences? Nobody really knows, and in this last case you will find figures differing almost by a factor of 10 depending on how you interpret the question, how you gather your evidence, from what sources and who is publishing it, etc. Yet Iraq has beeen open to access by the media and by investigative bodies to an immeasurably greater extent than was the case in Eastern Europe in the Second World War and its aftermath. How many Germans died in the evacuation of the Eastern territories in 1945? You will find figures quoted in a range of 500,000 to 3,000,000, usually more informed by political bias than by demography.
The six million figure is broken down quite differently depending on who is doing the calculations, with, in the most extreme case, Lucy Dawidowicz giving 1,300,000 Jewish deaths for the Majdanek camp and Raul Hilberg less than 100,000 of whom 50,000 were Jews. The “official” total for Majdanek today is 78,000 dead, all groups combined. These historians have struggled to reach the Holy Grail of Six Million, with Dawidowicz stopping just short at 5,900,000, Hilberg managing only 5,100,000 and the first in the field, Gerald Reitlinger, falling very short indeed at just over 4,000,000, which perhaps explains why he has fallen into oblivion. Figures for individual camps are regularly revised downward, but the Six Million remains intact and sacrosanct.
The origins of the Six Million
Though the meme of ”Six Million Jews” can be traced back to the 19th century, it first gained prominence during WW1 in America. It concerned Russian Jews: at that time the six-million story repeatedly focussed upon what was allegedly happening in Russia - ‘the six million Jews in Russia’ etc.1915.
- The Sun NY: six million Jews are being persecuted… 4 June 1915
- New York Times: Six million souls will need help when war is ended… 18 October, 1918.
- New York Times: ‘6,000,000 are in peril’ ‘6,000,000 souls .. are going to be completely exterminated – article about Ukrainian Jews, 8 September, 1919.
- New York Times:Terrible plight of Jews, “worst sufferers in the War”: 6,000,000 souls are in dire poverty, starvation…, 12 November 1919
Don Heddesheimer’s book, The First Holocaust: Jewish Fundraising Campaigns With Holocaust Claims During and After World War One details the slew of Jewish atrocity propaganda even from before World War I. The First Holocaust features a remarkable collection of press clippings and propaganda articles dating back to the late 19th century whereby claims of the suffering and imminent extermination of European Jewry were used for fundraising. The magic six million number may have got going around the time of the First International Zionist Congress of 1897.
The 1930s and 1940s
The story gradually moved from the US to Europe and in the 1930s came to focus upon what Germany was doing. The Holocaust of European Jews concept first appears in 1936:
- New York Times 31.5.36: ‘The European Holocaust’
In February 1943 the Reader’s Digest announced that six million Jews were being massacred (in an article by the Jewish Hollywood script-writer Ben Hecht, a supporter of Jewish terrorism in Palestine).
Finally in 1945, “Six million Jews are dead” was proclaimed at Nuremberg. The total of six million was not the result of any statistical assessment, but the culmination of this mythical story that had been gathering momentum through the first half of the 20th century.
Stories of “Six Million” in the press 1900-45
Between 1900 and 1945, at least 167 references have been found in newspapers and elsewhere to “six million Jews “, usually in a context of danger, most frequently of mortal danger:
- 1900 - Stephen S. Wise, New York Times, June 11, 1900: “There are 6,000,000 living, bleeding, suffering arguments in favor of Zionism.”
- 1902 - Encyclopaedia Britannica, 10th Edition, Vol. 25, 1902, page 482: “While there are in Russia and Rumania six millions of Jews who are being systematically degraded …”
- 1902 - Samuel W. Goldstein, New York Times, November 27, 1902: ”PLEA FOR ZIONISM … In answer I would say: Does Dr. Silverman represent the 6,000,000 Jews in Russia, 300,000 in Roumania and the 1,000,000 in Galicia?”
- 1944 - Nahum Goldmann, Jewish Western Bulletin, December 8th, 1944: ” … apart from Jewish losses in combat service, 5,500,000 Jews have been killed in Germany and German-occupied tesritories [territories] since the outbreak of the awr [war]. These figures exceed the number anticipated even by the most pessimistic. … Yes, the Germans murdered close to six million Jews … “
- 1944 - Ilya Ehrenburg, Soviet War News, December 22nd, 1944: “In the regions they seized, Germans killed all Jews, from the old folks to infants in arms. Ask any German prisoners why his fellow countrymen annihilated six million innocent people … “
- 1945 - New York Times, January 8th, 1945: “6,000,000 JEWS DEAD. The Jewish population in Europe has been reduced from 9,500,000 in 1939 to 3,500,000. Of the 6,000,000 European Jews who have died, 5,000,000 had lived in the countries under Hitler’s occupation.”
At Nuremberg, where the US delegation was predominantly Jewish, it was affirmed that six million Jews had been exterminated. The SS agent Wilhelm Höttl declared—on condition that his life was spared— that he had heard such a story from Adolf Eichmann in August 1944. That statement was dated 5 November, 1945. His affidavit stated that four million were killed in camps, the other two million were killed in other ways, e.g. shot in the East by the ‘Einsatzgruppen’ But Eichman later denied it. No counting of the dead took place.
No statistical study was ever undertaken to attempt to determine the number of missing Jews.
All that happened, was that a German SS officer had his life spared on condition that he came out with the magic number, and he did so. He cited the word of another, who later denied it. Thereby the mantric number lived on, and the world believed it.
In January 1945 the Soviets liberated Auschwitz, taking with them the death-records, the so-called ‘Death Books.’ In May of that year they declared that four million had been murdered at Auschwitz, and people believed this, for they (the Soviets) had the records, though the Soviets did not specify how many were allegedly Jews. Finally in 1989 Mikhail Gorbachev made public these death-books, and it turned out they had the deaths of only twenty-nine thousand Jews recorded at the Auschwitz camp.
Some real numbers
- In all the lands ever occupied by the Nazis, there were probably fewer than four million Jews, including the multitude of survivors.
- How many died in the camps? The primary source here is the Arolsen Archives, set up after the War by the International Red Cross, which has thrice published its total of WW2 camp mortality. In 1979, its total recorded deaths for thirteen camps was 271,501; in 1984, that total was given for fifteen labour-camps, amounting to 282 thousand. Then finally in 1991 for the fifteen camps it was 296,071 ‘officially certified deaths in German concentration camps’.
- There were mainly Poles, Russians and Jews in the German labour-camps, and around 40% were Jewish, giving a total of 120 thousand deaths. There were probably around ten percent of camp inmates unregistered at any given time, so let’s increase that total to 130 thousand deaths. But, to err on the side of caution, let’s quote the careful writer Georges Thiel, who estimated (based on the Arolsen totals) that there was ‘a theoretical maximum of 200,000 authenticated deaths of Jews in all the German camps for the whole National Socialist era.’ (Heresy, in twenty-first century France, a case of insubmission to the “Holocaust” dogma, 2010, p.73). He was sent to jail for expressing this sensible view. Some would put that total higher: thus the US took records from the Dachau camp after liberating it after the war, and they submitted at Nuremberg a total of 25.6 thousand dead, which we may compare to the 18.4 thousand for Dachau given by the Red Cross/Arolsen - that is 40% more.
- Between five and six million ‘Holocaust-survivors’ have come forward to take cash from Germany. It has paid out one hundred billion Deutschmarks overall. That figure was reached in 2002: (‘Germany Has Paid Out More Than $61.8 Billion in Third Reich Reparations’ Institute for Historical Review, 17,6) to some four million of these. They are mostly Jewish. There were various estimates around the turn of the century, of one million ‘holocaust survivors’ receiving compensation from Germany.
- From the Jewish Week 28 November 2003: Sergio DellaPergola, a demographer for the Institute of Contemporary Jewry at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, found 1,092,000 Holocaust survivors worldwide. Lawrence Eagleburger, chairman of the International Commission on Holocaust Era Insurance Claims, commissioned this survey, to help in distributing the yearly ‘humanitarian’ funding. The sheer number of these alleged survivors has totally undermined the claims made at Nuremberg of mass extermination. It is high time Germany ceased paying out that money.
- We have finally found one real figure of six million Jews: the number who have to-date applied to Germany for reparations, as alleged Holocaust-survivors.
Let us hope that future scholars will be allowed to investigate the WW2 figures of Jewish deaths in German labour-camps objectively, using primary-source documents, without having their careers terminated. Essential sources here are the British-intelligence decrypts, for the numbers in the camps 1941-42, the Death-Books of Auschwitz and the Arolsen Archives.
RED CROSS EXPOSES “JEWISH” HOLOCAUST HOAX: INTERNATIONAL RED CROSS (IRC) DOCUMENT CONFIRMS 271 THOUSAND NOT 6 MILLION DIED IN CONCENTRATION CAMPS
TG: “This appeared in Ireland in the Kilkenny Journal and was sent to me by a friend. Here is the link to the original article which I have pasted in full here below:”
OFFICIAL INTERNATIONAL RED CROSS RECORDS RELEASED
Sealed and guarded since the end of WWII at Arolsen, Germany, the Official IRC records reveal the actual Concentration Camp total death toll was 271,301
For years, people around the world – “the West” in particular – have been told that “six million Jews were systematically murdered by Germans in ‘Concentration Camps’ during World War 2.”
Thousands of honest people disputing this claim have been viciously smeared as a hateful anti-Semite. Several countries around the world have jailed and heavily fined people for disputing the claim that “6 Million” Jews were killed.
Provided here is a scanned image of an Official International Red Cross document, proving the so-called “Holocaust” [the long-and-often-claimed-6-million Jews] is just plain wrong. Jews around the world have intentionally exaggerated and perpetually lied for the purpose of gaining political, emotional and business advantages for themselves.
They committed willful, criminal FRAUD upon millions of trusting people around the world!
Please NOTE that the truth has been known since long before 1979!!! The above compiler, replying to a letter, had to rely on information that was already in existence!!!
Tax-payers of Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Latvia, Poland and other nations have had multiple millions of dollars taken from their wages to be paid out to “holocaust survivors” and their descendants for something that DID NOT HAPPEN.
The tax-payers of these United States of America spend Billion$ each year in direct, indirect and military support of the State of Israel (which is not Biblical Israel).
This is intentional, criminal fraud on a scale so massive as to be almost incomprehensible.
Red Cross and East German government figures put the total deaths at every camp as 272.000, and 282,000 respectively which includes homosexuals, communists, gypsies, murderers, paedophiles etc. The 6 Million figure is a Kabbalist number, a magickal figure which featured in news papers in the early 1900’s
I call for criminal prosecution of individuals and groups who filed false lawsuits to obtain holocaust reparations and financial damage awards and perpetrating deliberate fraud upon Courts.
I call for the removal of Holocaust references in History books and educational materials.
I call for the removal of Holocaust Memorials worldwide.
It is long overdue that this intentional fraud be halted and those who perpetrated it be brought to justice for over 60 years of National Blood Libel against Germany and other nations through vicious lies and financial fraud.
Two of the most important surveys of the Jewish question in Europe during World War II are David Irvings examination of the Russian archives after the wall came down. Irving published his findings in his book, “Hitler’s War” and said not one word about gas chambers.
When question about this omission he said that there was no reference to gas chambers in the archives and therefore he did not discuss the question of gas chambers. Irving was arrested in several countries for hate speech for his scholarly omission.
The International Red Cross published their analysis in a three volume “Report of the International Committee of the Red Cross on its Activities during the Second World War” published in Geneva in 1948. This analysis expanded findings of two previous publications: “Sur L’activite’ du CICR en faveur des civils detencus dans les camps de concentration en Allemagne 1939-1945 (Geneva, 1946) and “Inter Arma Caritas: The Work of the ICRF during the Second World War” (Geneva, 1947).
In 1949 the International Red Cross interviewed prisoners in the German camps. They were not allowed to interview prisoners in the Russian camps which were far more harsh.
The German camps held both political prisoners (Schutzhaflinge) and those convicted of crimes. The Germans allowed the Red Cross to distribute food, medicine and clothing to the prisoners.
Grateful prisoners sent letters of thanks from Dachau, Buchenwalk, Sangerhausen, Sachsenhausen, Oranienburg, Flossenburg, Landsberg-am-Lech, Fibha, Ravensbruck, Hamburg-Neuengamme, Mauthausen, Theresienstadt, Auschwitz, Bergen-Belsen and others.
“The principal recipients were Belgians, Dutch, French, Greeks, Italians, Norwegians, Poles and stateless Jews” (Vol. III, p. 83).
Regarding Theresienstadt, the Red Cross said, “”where there were about 40,000 Jews deported from various countries, was a relatively privileged ghetto” (Vol. III, p. 75).
“The Committee’s delegates were able to visit the camp at Theresienstadt (Terezin) which was used exclusively for Jews and was governed by special conditions … From information gathered by the Commmee, this camp had been started as an experiment by certain leaders of the Reich … These men wished to give the Jews the means of setting up a communal life in a town under their own administration and possessing almost complete autonomy … two delegates were able to visit the camp on April 6, 1945.
They confirmed the favourable impression gained on the first visit” (Vol. I, p. 642).
The ICRC also had praise for the regime of Ion Antonescu of Fascist Rumania where the Committee was able to extend special relief to 183,000 Rumanian Jews until the time of the Soviet occupation.
The aid then ceased and the ICRC complained bitterly that it never succeeded “in sending anything whatsoever to Russia” (Vol. II, p. 62). The same situation applied to many of the German camps after their “liberation” by the Russians.
The ICRC received a voluminous flow of mail from Auschwitz until the period of the Soviet occupation, when many of the internees were evacuated westward. But the efforts of the Red Cross to send relief to internees remaining at Auschwitz under Soviet control were futile.
However. food parcels continued to be sent to former Auschwitz inmates transferred west to such camps as Buchenwald and Oranienburg.
NO MENTION OF GAS CHAMBERS
One of the most important aspects of the Report of the ICRC is that it clarifies the true cause of those deaths that undoubtedly occurred in the camps towards the end of the war.
Says the Report: “in the chaotic condition of Germany after the invasion during the final months of the war, the camps received no food supplies at all and starvation claimed an increasing number of victims.
Itself alarmed by this situation, the German Government at last informed the ICRC on February 1, 1945 … In March 1945, discussions between the President of the ICRC and General of the S.S. Kaltenbrunner gave even more decisive results.
Relief could henceforth be distributed by the ICRC and one delegate was authorised to stay in each camp .I.” (Vol. III, p.83).
Clearly, the German authorities were at pains to relieve the dire situation as far as they were able.
The Red Cross are quite explicit in stating that food supplies ceased at this time due to the Allied bombing of German transportation, and in the interests of interned Jews they had protested on March 15, 1944 against “the barbarous aerial warfare of the Allies” (Inter Armet Caritns, p. 78). B
By October 2, 1944, the ICRC had warned the German Foreign Office of the impending collapse of the German transportation system, declaring that starvation conditions for people throughout Germany were becoming inevitable.
In dealing with this comprehensive, three-volume Report, it is important to stress that the delegates of the International Red Cross found no evidence whatsoever of ‘gas chambers’.
The original 1946 edition did not even talk of ‘extermination’ or ‘death camps’ but after the emotional impact of the Nuremberg trials the Red Cross felt compelled to introduce into the expanded 1948 Report several, very cursory references to ‘death camps’ (Vol. 1 p. 641) and ‘extermination camps’ (Vol. I p. 645).
However, no means of’extermination’ is indicated.
In all its 1,600 pages the three-volume Report does not even mention such a thing as a
‘gas chamber’. It acknowledges that Jews, like many other wartime nationalities, suffered rigours and privations, but’ its complete silence
on the subject of’gassings’ is ample refutation of the ‘Holocaust’ legend.
NOT ALL WERE INTERNED
Volume III of the Report of the ICRC, Chapter 3 (I. Jewish Civilian Population) deals with the “aid given to the Jewish section of the free population” and this chapter makes it quite plain that by no means all of the European Jews were placed in internment camps but remained, subject to certain restrictions, as part of the free civilian population.
This conflicts directly with the “thoroughness” of the supposed “extermination programme”, and with the claim in the forged Hoess memoirs that Eichmann was obsessed with seizing every single Jew he could lay his hands on,” In Slovakia, for example, where Eichmann’s assistant Dieter Wisliceny was in charge, the Report states that “A large proportian of the Jewish minority had permission to stay in the country, and at certain periods Slovakia was looked upon as a comparative haven of refuge for Jews, especially for those coming from Poland.
Those who remained in Slovakia seem to have been in comparative safety until the end of August 1944, when a rising against the German forces took place. While it is true that the law of May 15, 1942 had brought about the internment of several thousand Jews, these people were held in camps where the conditions of food and lodging were tolerable, and where the internees were allowed to do paid work on terms almost equal to those of the free labour market” (Vol. I, p. 646).
Not only did large numbers of the three million or so European Jews avoid internment altogether, but the emigration of Jews continued throughout the war, generally by way of Hungary, Rumania and Turkey. Ironically, post-war Jewish emigration from German-occupied territories was also facilitated by the Reich, as in the case of the Polish Jews who had escaped to France before its occupation.
“The Jews from Poland who, whilst in France, had obtained entrance permits to the United States were held to be American citizens by the German occupying authorities, who further agreed to recognise the validity of about three thousand passports issued to Jews by the consulates of South American countries” (Vol. 1, p. 645).
As future U.S. citizens, these Jews were held at the Vittel camp in southern France for American aliens. The emigration of European Jews from Hungary in particular proceeded during the war unhindered by the German authorities. “Until March 1944,” says the Red Cross Report, “Jews who had the privilege of visas for Palestine were free to leave Hungary” (Vol. 1, p. 648). Even after the replacement of the Horthy Government in 1944 (following its attempted armistice with the Soviet Union) with a government more dependent on German authority, the emigration of Jews continued.
The Committee secured the pledges of both Britain and the United States “to give support by every means to the emigration of Jews from Hungary, ” and from the U.S. Government the ICRC received a message stating that “The Government of the United States… now specifically repeats its assurance that arrangements will be made by it for the care of all Jews who in the present circumstances are allowed to leave” (Vol. 1, p. 649).
Official International Red Cross Records Released
Sealed And Guarded Since The End Of WWII At Arolsen, Germany,
The Official IRC Records Reveal The Actual Concentration Camp Total Death
Toll Was 271,301
The reason why they are claiming six million deaths in Nazi camps, even though that number vastly exceeds the number of Jews in Europe at the time, is because this reference in their scripture is something they fear deeply and wish to prevent at all costs.
The Ashkenazi Jews, which I have experience with honestly believe that prophecy is real, but can be manipulated.
They believe that prophets see into the future, and see what was believed and said, and then write that down as much as they reveal the word of GOD.
SO there is a group of Ashkenazi Jews who wish to make the six million figure HISTORY to prevent it from ever happening in the FUTURE by repeating this number over and over and over into the social concience, in the hope that prophets of old will also latch onto this, and report it as a factual event in the future, which would now be history.
In other words, they believe they can lie themselves a new future. I don’t think so – I think their hardest days are ahead and one thing is certain, the genie is out of the bottle and through the word, the real truth of Fukushima may be like silly putty slowly sinking into the carpet, eventually it will be TOTALLY sunk in the carpet and nothing will get it out.
THIS could cause the six million Jewish deaths the prophecy speaks of, and No, I do not believe they can lie their way out of it.
Note to readers from Teena Gee: Does any reader know where or how to get a copy of this (these) German Red Cross documents? I would like to read the complete reports and explore the details contained in them. As a matter of simple mathematics, if there were less than 5,000 Jews in the whole of Europe at the time, and lets guess that one third relocated, that leaves a remainder of around 3 million – not 6.
I have a book called “Germany” published by Lonely Planet, ISBN: 1740594711 4th Edition published in MAY 2004 and I quote from page 34 which states: (bottom paragraph)
” …Another 165 work camps provided labour for big industry including IG Farbendinustrie AG, producer of the cyanide gas Zyclon B that was used in gas chambers to murder over three million Jews.”
How exactly did we get from 3 million to 6 million? and how did we get to either number when the Red Cross official death record states 271,301?
