The First Holocaust

by Don
Heddesheimer is a critical work documenting the continuous Jewish
attempts at floating out Holocaust propaganda before, during and after
World War One, often invoking the magical “6,000,000″ figure and using
the term “Holocaust”. Of course, these clever propagandists have since
accomplished their goal of establishing the outrageous myth of the
Jewish Holocaust™ in the public consciousness following the end of WW2.
In large part due to fictional Hollywood movies like “Shindler’s List”
from that lying venomous worm, Steven Spielberg. Read The First
Holocaust online here.

Why
the number “Six Million”?
As documented in the book The First Holocaust, the Zionists have
continuously and hysterically attempted to claim that six million Jews
were dead, dying or in grave danger in Europe and Russia since the late
1800′s. Any time there was turmoil in Europe, albeit turmoil often
instigated by Jews in the first place, prominent Zionist figures and
Jewish-controlled media organizations world wide continuously whipped
up a frenzy with phony sob stories to get people to feel sorry for
Europe’s Jews and donate money to Jewish charities. It turns out that
this mythical six million figure, long since discredited even by
mainstream Holohoax historians, comes from a Jewish-Talmudic religious
myth that says “ye shall return minus six million” or “you shall return
to the land of Israel with six million less”, and of course WW2 birthed
the modern state of Israel which was established in 1948. Israeli Jews
often excuse their systematic genocide of Palestinians and theft of
Palestinian lands by bringing up the so-called Holocaust™ of WW2, which
any serious researcher and critical thinker knows by now is a fraud of
collosal proportions. The Zionists have so much influence that they
turned a delusional Jewish religious prophecy into “historical fact”.
[Quote
1] Jewish prophecies in the Torah require that 6 million Jews must
“vanish” before the state of Israel can be formed. “You shall return
minus 6 million.” That’s why Tom Segev, an Israeli historian, declared
that the “6 million” is an attempt to transform the Holocaust story
into state religion. Those six million, according to prophecy, had to
disappear in “burning ovens”, which the judicial version of the
Holocaust now authenticates. As a matter of fact, Robert B. Goldmann
writes: “. . . without the Holocaust, there would be no Jewish State.”
A simple consequence: Given six million Jews gassed at Auschwitz who
ended up in the “burning ovens” (the Greek word holocaust means burned
offerings), therefore, the prophecies have now been “fulfilled” and
Israel can become a “legitimate state”. –Unknown

[Quote 2] Regarding the ‘six million’ number you should know the
following: In the Hebrew text of the Torah prophesies, one can read
“you shall return”. In the text the letter “V” or “VAU” is absent, as
Hebrew does not have any numbers; the letter V stands for the number 6.
Ben Weintraub, a religious scientist, learned from rabbis that the
meaning of the missing letter means the number is ’6 million’. The
prophesy then reads: You will return, but with 6 million less. See Ben
Weintraub: “The Holocaust Dogma of Judaism”, Cosmo Publishing,
Washington 1995, page 3. The missing 6 million must be so before the
Jews can return to the Promised Land. Jahweh sees this as a cleaning of
the souls of the sinful people. The Jews must, on the return to the
Promised Land, be clean — the cleaning shall be done in burning stokes.

Poland refuses to give back the territory stripped away from Germany at
the end of WW1, namely the formerly German city of Danzig/Danzig
corridor connecting the German mainland to East Prussia.

In
September Poland is invaded from the west by Germany and from the east
by the Soviet Union. Britain and France declare war on Germany,
supposedly because of Hitler’s invasion of Poland. However, Britain and
France did not declare war on the Soviet Union which also had invaded
Poland.
The
reason they left the Soviet Union alone was because the Soviet Union
was, for all intents and purposes, under Jewish rule. The purpose of
WW2 all along was not to free Poland but to destroy Germany, who had
broken loose from the grip of the Jews. The Allies dumped Poland, along
with the rest of Eastern Europe, off to the Communist butchers at the
end of the war, thus confirming Poland was nothing more then a pawn
used to sucker the Third Reich into a war.

Meanwhile…
Jews today still claim “six million” even though the numbers have been

Also
in 1990 the “Nazis made Jews into soap and lampshades” charge is
finally dropped by the propagandists, adding to the long list of
previously dropped lies about “electroshock chambers”, “steam

Allied-Zionist-Communist propaganda machine…
However,
lying Jews still claim this happened, even today;
The
revisionists estimate the combined death toll in the German camps was
somewhere around 300,000 (only about half of which were Jews) based on
records released by the Red Cross (who continuously inspected the Nazi
camps), the Auschwitz
death books
released to the Soviet archives in 1990 and other
evidence. Main cause of death: typhus/starvation.

The Case For Open Debate
An Introduction

THE CONTEMPORARY ISSUE
Is asking questions a crime? If you develop
doubts about the Holocaust, isn’t the only way to get rid of these
doubts by asking questions? A lot of individuals and groups are enraged
by those who ask critical questions about the Holocaust. These
doubters, who call themselves Revisionists, are often defamed as
“Holocaust deniers.”
Every other historical issue is debated as a
matter of course, but influential pressure groups have made the
Holocaust story an exception. Anyone should be encouraged to
investigate critically the Holocaust story in the same way they are
encouraged to investigate every other historical event. This is not a
radical point of view. The culture of critique was developed millennia
ago by Greek philosophers like Socrates, and was renewed centuries ago
during the Enlightenment.
THE HISTORICAL ISSUE
Revisionists agree with establishment
historians that the German National Socialist State singled out the
Jewish people for special and cruel treatment. In addition to viewing
Jews in the framework of traditional anti-Semitism, the National
Socialists also saw them as being an influential force behind
international communism and behind the so-called international “finance
capital,” which they held responsible for the worldwide economic crisis
and for the impoverishment of German workers. During World War II, Jews
were considered to be enemies of the German State and a potential
danger to its war efforts, much like the Germans, Italians, and
Japanese were viewed in the U.S. Consequently, Jews were stripped of
their rights, forced to live in ghettos, conscripted for labor,
deprived of their property, deported, and otherwise mistreated. Many
tragically perished.
In contrast to establishment historians, Revisionists
claim
that the German State had NO policy to exterminate the
Jewish people (or anyone else) in homicidal gas chambers or by killing
them through abuse or neglect. Revisionists also maintain that the
figure of six million Jewish deaths is an irresponsible exaggeration,
and that no execution gas chambers existed in any camp in Europe which
was under German control. Fumigation gas chambers, both stationary and
mobile, did exist to delouse clothing and equipment to prevent disease
at POW, labor, and concentration camps and at the fighting front. It is
highly likely that it was from this lifesaving procedure that the myth
of extermination gas chambers emerged.
Revisionists generally hold that the Allied
governments, and in particular the Soviets, decided to carry their
wartime “black propaganda” of German monstrosities over into the
postwar period. This was done for essentially three reasons. 1. The
Allies felt it necessary to continue to justify the great sacrifices
that were made in fighting two world wars. 2. The Allies wanted to
divert attention from, and to justify, their own particularly brutal
crimes against humanity. Soviet atrocities alone caused the death of
uncounted millions of civilians in the Soviet Union and in all
countries of eastern and central Europe. American and British
saturation bombings of German and Japanese cities causing over a
million civilians to be burned or buried alive. 3. The Allies needed
justification for postwar arrangements involving the total dismantling
of German industry, a policy of starvation causing the deaths of many
millions of German civilians, the robbing of German patents worth
trillions of dollars, and the annexation of large parts of Germany into
Poland and the USSR. These territories were not disputed borderlands
but consisted of 20% of the entire German territory. The twelve million
Germans living in these regions were robbed of their property and
brutally expelled. More than two millions perished during this most
heinous ethnic cleansing of world history.
During the war, and in the postwar era as
well, Zionist organizations became deeply involved in creating and
spreading Holocaust stories. Their purpose was to drum up world
sympathy and support for Jewish causes, especially for the creation of
the State of Israel. Today, the Holocaust story, which is perceived as
a crime of a right-wing regime, plays an important role for
leftist-internationalist groups, for Zionist organizations, and for
groups within Jewish communities. It is the leaders of these political
and propaganda organizations who continue to work to sustain the
orthodox Holocaust legend and the myth of German monstrosity during
World War II.
Those who claim that these interpretations
are anti-Jewish are reading into them something which simply is not
there. Revisionists do not claim that Jewish leaders or organizations
did anything in the war and postwar era which the Allied Governments
themselves did not do.
For those who believe that the Nuremberg
Trials revealed the truth about German war crimes, it is a terrible
shock to discover that the then Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme
Court, Harlan Fiske Stone, described the Nuremberg court as “a
high-grade lynching party” for Germans (Alpheus T. Mason, Harlan Fiske
Stone: Pillar of the Law, New York: Viking, 1956, p. 716).
The Photographs
We’ve all seen “The Photographs.” Endlessly.
Newsreel photos taken by U.S. and British photographers at the
liberation of the German camps, and especially the awful scenes at
Dachau, Buchenwald, and Bergen-Belsen. For instance, look at the one at
the top of this leaflet. These photos and films are usually presented
in a way in which it is either stated or implied that the scenes
resulted from deliberate German policies. The photographs are real, but
their interpretation is false.
Even mainstream historians admit that there
was no German policy at any of those camps to kill the internees. In
the last months of the war, while Soviet armies were invading Germany
from the east, British and U.S. bombers were destroying every major
city in Germany with saturation bombing. Transportation, the food
distribution system, medical, and sanitation services all broke down.
That was the purpose of these air raids, which was the most barbaric
form of warfare in Europe since the Mongol invasion.
Millions of refugees fleeing the Soviet
armies were pouring into central and western Germany. As a result of
the ongoing war, of starvation, and epidemics, millions of civilians
were dying all over Germany. The camps were not exempted from this
tragedy. Camps that were still under German control were overcrowded
with internees evacuated from the east. By early 1945, these inmates
suffered from malnutrition and epidemics like typhus and cholera, to
which many succumbed. When the press entered the camps with British and
U.S. soldiers, they found the results of that. They took “The
Photographs.”
Still, at camps such as Buchenwald, Dachau,
and Bergen-Belsen tens of thousands of relatively healthy internees
were liberated. They were there in the camps when “The Photographs”
were taken. There are newsreels of these internees walking through the
camp streets laughing and talking. Others picture exuberant internees
throwing their caps in the air and cheering their liberators. It is
only natural to ask why you haven’t seen those particular films and
photos while you’ve seen the others hundreds of times.
Documents
It is often claimed that there are “tons” of
captured German documents proving the Jewish genocide. When challenged
on this, however, only a handful of documents are produced, the
authenticity or interpretation of which is highly questionable. If
pressed for reliable documentation, it is then claim that the Germans
destroyed all the relevant documents to hide their evil deeds, or the
absurd claim is made that the Germans used code language, whispered
verbal orders, or conveyed orders through a meeting of minds.
As a matter of fact, all available
documentation and material traces indicate that there was no order for
a mass murder of Jews, no plan, no budget, no weapon—that is, no gas
chamber—and no victim—that is, not a single autopsied body has been
shown to have been gassed.
Eyewitness Testimony
During medieval witch trials, many witnesses
told similar accounts about broom-riding witches and the devil. Since
most statements were made independently of each other and without
pressure, this was taken as evidence that the stories must be true;
material evidence was never produced. “Common knowledge,” a word
invented in those days, and social expectations formed the basis of
these accounts, not the truth.
Today, we face the same “common knowledge”
produced by 60 years of one-sided mass media propaganda and massive
social and sometimes even legal pressure to conform to certain views.
To support their theories, anti-Revisionists depend almost exclusively
on “eyewitness” testimony produced in this poisoned atmosphere.
During the war crimes trials many
“eyewitnesses” testified that Germans made soap out of human fat and
lamp shades from human skin. Allied prosecutors even produced evidence
to support these charges. For decades, highly respected scholars at the
most prestigious universities in the world sanctioned these stories,
leading us to believe that such stories were “irrefutable truths.” But
within time, many such stories have become untenable: In 1990, Yehuda
Bauer, director of Holocaust studies at Hebrew University, Tel Aviv,
admitted: “The Nazis never made soap from Jews…” (Jerusalem Post, Int.
Ed., 5 May 1990, p. 6).
Bruno Baum, a former communist inmate in
Auschwitz, was allowed to brag in summer 1945 in a Soviet newspaper:
“The whole propaganda which started about Auschwitz abroad was
initiated by us [German communist inmates] with the help of our Polish
comrades.” (Deutsche Volkszeitung, Soviet paper in occupied East
Germany, 31 July 1945). Thus, it is not surprising to learn that during
several trials in Germany, it emerged that the testimony of witnesses
from eastern Europe had been orchestrated by communist authorities.
During a trial against an alleged former
camp guard in Jerusalem, even the Israeli court had to admit that all
witness testimony was not credible, which resulted in the defendant’s
acquittal.
The only two witnesses who were ever
cross-examined had to admit in 1985 that their accounts were not true:
Arnold Friedman confessed of never having experienced what he had
claimed, and Rudolf Vrba admitted of having used poetic license to
“embellish” his statements. Vrba is one of the most famous Auschwitz
witnesses. However, once asked if all claims Vrba had made about
Auschwitz in the famous movie Shoa were true, Vrba replied: “I do not
know. I was just an actor and I recited my text.” He told this with a
sardonic smile to his Jewish friend Georg Klein (G. Klein, Pietà,
Stockholm, p. 141).
During and after the war there were
“eyewitnesses” to mass gassings at Buchenwald, Bergen-Belsen, Dachau,
and other camps in Germany proper. Today, virtually all recognized
scholars dismiss this testimony as false.
Establishment historians, however, still
claim that mass gassings happened at several camps in Poland. The
evidence for this claim is, in reality, qualitatively no different to
the false testimony and evidence for the alleged mass gassings at the
camps in Germany proper.
With regard to confessions by Germans at war
crimes trials, it is now well documented that many were obtained
through coercion, intimidation, and even physical torture, just like
during the medieval witch trials.
Auschwitz
In 1990, the Auschwitz State Museum revised
the old propaganda claim of four million murdered humans down to one
million—base not upon facts, but upon estimates! In 1994, a French
scholar reduced this figure further down to less than 700,000, and in
2002, another mainstream Holocaust scholar reduced the Auschwitz death
toll to 500,000—again not based on facts, but on “estimates.”
The Auschwitz Museum has put on display
piles of hair, boots, and eyeglasses, etc., but there is neither
evidence for the origin of these items nor for the fate of their former
owners. While such displays are effective propaganda, they are
worthless as historical artifacts.
In a videotaped interview, the Auschwitz
Museum authorities admitted that the gas chamber shown to tourists is a
“reconstruction,” again not based on facts, but only on unverified
eyewitness claims. The Museum’s tourist guides, however, tell visitors
that all they see is genuine…
Whereas some mainstream scholars claim that
the Auschwitz crematories, whose morgues supposedly served as gas
chambers, were the “absolute center” in the “geography of atrocities,”
other mainstream scholars claim that the mass murder did not take place
in those crematories, but elsewhere. Revisionist, however, want
certainty, not speculations and estimates.
Jewish Population Losses During World
War II
Only two monographs were written so far on
the question of how many Jews lost their lives during World War II. The
first is a revisionist book concluding that some 300,000 perished. The
second is authored by several recognized historians claiming that some
six million died. Whereas the Revisionist book takes into consideration
demographic changes of the Jewish population in all countries, the
mainstream book compiles its figures by simply subtracting the number
of Jews alive in Europe a few years after the war from those alive in
Europe several years before the war. It ignores that the Jewish
population in America, Israel, and other countries outside of Europe
had increased by almost six million in this period of time, as a result
of a new Exodus. Thus, those who had left Europe were simply declared
to be Holocaust victims.
The Hidden Genocide
Those who promote the Holocaust story
complain that “the whole world” was indifferent to the genocide which
allegedly was occurring in German occupied Europe. They claim that this
was due to some great moral flaw in the nature of Western man, or that
people did not realize the enormity of what was happening. It is true
that the world responded with indifference. But perhaps it was because
they did not believe it.
It is certain that if there had been
“killing factories” in Poland murdering millions of civilians, then the
Red Cross, the Pope, humanitarian agencies, the Allied governments,
neutral governments, and prominent figures such as Roosevelt, Truman,
Churchill, Eisenhower, and many others would have known about it and
would have often and unambiguously mentioned it, and condemned it. They
did not! The promoters admit that only a tiny group of individuals
believed the story at that time—many of whom were connected either with
Jewish or with Communist propaganda agencies. The rise of the Holocaust
story reads more like the success story of a PR campaign than anything
else.
Winston Churchill wrote his six volume work
The Second World War without mentioning a program of mass-murder and
genocide. In his book Crusade in Europe, Dwight D. Eisenhower also
failed to mention gas chambers. Was the weapon used to murder millions
of Jews unworthy of a passing reference? Was our future president being
insensitive to Jews?
Examples of Propaganda
During and after the First World War, that
is between 1916 and the late 1920s, mainly American Jewish
organizations were claiming that six million Jews(!) would suffer
terribly in poverty stricken Eastern Europe. In this context, it was
claimed that eastern European Jewry would face a Holocaust if they did
not receive massive funding. With such propaganda, millions of dollars
were raised in the United States, which at the end were mainly used to
finance the Soviet revolution in Russia.
On 22 March 1916, that is during the First
World War, the British newspaper The Daily Telegraph published an
article falsely claiming that the Germans had murdered 700,000 Serbs in
gas chambers. On 25 May 1942, that is during the Second World War, the
same newspaper reported that the Germans had murdered 700,000 Jews in
Poland in gas chambers.
How can we tell that the second story is
true, if we know that the first is a lie? In 1944, the British
Government asked the British media and churches to help spread
anti-German propaganda, which it had been putting out already for a
while, in order to distract from the atrocities it expected to be
committed by the Soviets as soon as they invade Germany. In its
circular, the British government expressed its regret that, after the
exposure of WWI propaganda lies, greater efforts would be necessary to
succeed this time.
POLITICAL CORRECTNESS AND REVISIONISM
Many people are bewildered when they first
hear Holocaust Revisionist arguments. The arguments appear to make
sense, but “How is it possible?” The whole world believes the Holocaust
story. It’s just not plausible that so great a conspiracy to suppress
the truth could have functioned more than half a century.
To understand how it could very well have
happened, one needs only to reflect on the intellectual and political
orthodoxies of medieval Europe, or those of National Socialist Germany
or the Communist-bloc countries. In all of these societies the great
majority of scholars were caught up in the existing political culture.
Committed to a prevailing ideology and its interpretation of reality,
these scholars and intellectuals felt it was their right, and even
their duty, to protect every aspect of that ideology. They did so by
oppressing the “evil” dissidents who expressed “offensive” or
“dangerous” ideas. In everyone of those societies, scholars became the
“Thought Police.”
In our own society, in the debate over the
question of political correctness, there are those who deliberately
attempt to trivialize the issues. They claim that there is no real
problem with freedom of speech in our society, and that all that is
involved with PC are a few rules which would defend minorities from
those who would hurt their feelings. There is, of course, a deeper and
more serious aspect to the problem. In American society today there is
a wide range of ideas and viewpoints which the mass media will not
allow to be discussed openly. Even obvious facts and realities, when
they are politically unacceptable, are denied and suppressed. One can
learn much about the psychology and methods of the Thought Police by
watching how they react when just one of their taboos is broken and
Holocaust Revisionism is given a public forum.
First they express outrage that such
“offensive” and “dangerous” ideas were allowed to be expressed
publicly. They avoid answering or debating these ideas, claiming that
to do so would give the Revisionists a forum and legitimacy. Then they
make vicious personal attacks against the Revisionist heretics, calling
them political names such as “hater,” “denier,” “anti-Semite,”
“racist,” “terrorist,” or “neo-Nazi,” even suggesting that they are
potential mass murderers. They publicly accuse the Revisionists of
lying, but they don’t allow the dissenters to hear the specific charge
against them or to face their accusers so that they can answer this
slander.
Revisionists are frequently accused of being
hate filled people who are promoting a doctrine of hatred. But
Revisionism is a scholarly process, not a doctrine or an ideology. If
the Holocaust promoters really want to expose hatred, they should take
a second look at their own doctrines, and a long look at themselves in
the mirror.
Anyone who invites a Revisionist to speak
publicly is himself attacked for being insensitive. When Revisionists
do speak publicly, they are regularly shouted down and threatened.
Libraries and bookstores face intimidation when they consider handling
Holocaust revisionist materials. All this goes on while the majority of
library, media, college, and university administrators sit silently by,
allowing political activists to determine what can be said in the media
and read in libraries.
Next, the Thought Police set out to destroy
the transgressor professionally and financially by “getting” him at his
job or concocting a lawsuit against him. It is sometimes often
deceptively claimed that Revisionist scholarship has been proven false
during a trial, though courts of law can never decide any scholarly
debates; they can only impose dogmas.
Finally, the Thought Police will inevitably
“straighten out” that segment of academia or media that allowed the
Revisionists a forum in the first place.
Some administrators in academia hold that
university administrations should take action to rid the campus of
ideas which are disruptive to universities. This is an open invitation
to tyranny. It means that any militant group with “troops at the ready”
can rid the campus of ideas it opposes and then impose its own
orthodoxy. Coward administrators might find it much easier and safer to
rid the campus of controversial ideas than to face down a group of
screaming militants. But it is the duty of university administrators to
insure that our universities remain a free marketplace of ideas. When
ideas cause disruptions, it is the disrupters who must be subdued, not
the ideas.
CONCLUSION
The influence of Holocaust Revisionism is
growing steadily both here and abroad. In the United States,
Revisionism was launched in earnest in 1977 with the publication of the
bookThe Hoax of the Twentieth Century by Arthur R. Butz. Professor Butz
teaches electrical engineering and computer sciences at Northwestern
University in Evanston, Illinois.
Those who take up the Revisionist cause
represent a wide spectrum of political and philosophical positions.
They are certainly not the scoundrels, liars, and demons the
anti-Revisionists try to make them out to be. The fact is, there are no
demons in the real world. People are at their worst when they begin to
see their opponents as an embodiment of evil, and then begin to
demonize them. Such people are quite prepared to harm their opponents.
The logic of their argument is that you can do anything you want to a
demon. We should not allow such a logic to prevail.
