(Click Here To Let Us Know)

The Auschwitz Album is the only surviving visual evidence of the process of mass murder at Auschwitz-Birkenau. It is a unique document and was donated to Yad Vashem by Lilly Jacob-Zelmanovic Meier. The photos were taken at the end of May or beginning of June 1944, either by Ernst Hofmann or by Bernhard Walter, two SS men whose task was to take ID photos and fingerprints of the inmates (not of the Jews who were sent directly to the gas chambers). The photos show the arrival of Hungarian Jews from Carpatho-Ruthenia. Many of them came from the Berehovo Ghetto, which itself was a collecting point for Jews from several other small towns. The photos in the album show the entire process except for the killing itself.

    haunting piece … always difficult to mentality grasp the fact that this was a reality and people did this to other people…scary …

    I’ll watch at least some of this for the shots of those labelled ‘Hungarian Jews’ but for a start, National Geographic is owned by …… in association with …. and the film was funded by a ……….. organisation. In the description, we have evidence of NO evidence that the inmates were …… as these ‘two SS officers’ conveniently only recorded ‘the inmates’ ‘not those jews sent to the gas chambers’ boom boom. So no surprises here.

        For once I agree with you. I note all holocaust deniers hate jews. Where are the holocaust deniers that don’t hate jews? Kind of makes the holocaust hoax theory stink a bit of self-serving bullshit. I am no fan of the Zionists – and most of the jews I have known (Israelis) were annoying brain washed morons. But that alone doesn’t mean I should deny the holocaust – because there is plenty of evidence for it:

          I don’t hate Jewish people or any other person because of their race, colour or religion but I also have questions about the stunning lack of evidence that Jews were gassed at Auschwitz.

          For a long time I was unwilling to look at the evidence but when I was able to open my mind & deprogram myself so I could ask questions & search for the truth, I was stunned to learn the facts.

          Rothschild Zionism was seeking to create Israel & the idea of a Jewish Holocaust was instrumental in this regard.

          I ask all people to question & research what we are told by media & government & to not be scared to seek the truth, wherever it may take you. 

          Unless you place truth above myth creation, you remain both ignorant & abdicate your God given right to free thought & speech.

          You shouldn’t let anyone tell you what you can & can’t ask, think , feel or say because if you do you, you acquiesce to mind control by another & that is a waste of life.

          Separate Zionism from Jewish people. Many Jewish people oppose Zionism as the terrorist ideology it is.

            Wikipedia is certainly the best at being the easiest source to quote. 

            To understand the truth of any matter it is always wise to jump the fence and review the counterargument. The majority of ‘information’ that points us toward the conclusion that six million jews were systematically exterminated by the National Socialists is hearsay. Not physical, but built on the tenuous foundations of word of mouth.

            If the case was to go to an impartial court for trial the odds of it being dismissed through lack of evidence would be very low indeed. Go and see how concrete the findings were on the subject of mass extermination at the Nuremburg trials. You may be surprised.

        You didn’t refute any of the points. I for one have not researched into this subject, and doubted the possibility, but I’m also surprised at the depth of the questions presented by cole.

        Inability to weigh the reverse of your acusations is your downfall on debating such topics. Think about it.

          ROFL. Just because some random person on the internet (me) decides not to respond or get involved in an argument with some other random person on the internet (him), is reason enough for you to draw conclusions about an event that occurred 70 years ago? You truly have no right to be here making ridiculous accusations. Think about it.

          I am not interested in such a debate. I have no interest in changing your – or anyone else’s - mind. Think what ever you like. Just try and stop being a fool.

          • Johnny Hammer

            You are not interested in such a debate, or a debate in general? 

            If someone picks me up on any inconsistencies in  one of my points of argument, whether it be on the internet or face-to-face, I feel obligated to clarify my position through the delivery of supportive facts. 

            Pounding out descriptions of where I am rolling or how loud I am laughing doesn’t give me much satisfaction frankly…I guess this is one of the many areas in which we differ.

          • 1010100110

            If you don’t have any interest in “changing anyones mind” why exactly are you posting on here with such emotion about an event “that occurred 70 years ago” as if it happend to you, yesterday and they killed your family in a gas chamber?

            The questions presented are in physical reality. Chemical traces are an excellent starting point for discussion yet you seem to avoid the physical reality. I would guess from being a voice of dissent against popular conspiracy on this website that you would have the better half of information. Yet you limit yourself and serve a holocaust deniers with an unanswered question.

            I wouldn’t call it a winning statment.

    of course it shows no gas chambers,you people are so easily duped. Just because Jews were rounded up and put in camps,does not mean they were mass murdered. You can believe the lies,or the evidence. Illogical people ignore evidence,and believe propaganda. Knowledgeable people know there was no holocaust.

       Just because you don’t see gas chambers doesn’t mean Jews weren’t mass murdered. There is photographic EVIDENCE of mass Jews (and others) being killed with guns, starving to death, disease ridden and beaten. So, what do you say about that?

    I get annoyed at all the wannabe amateur revisionist historians here, who make shit up to feed their own ego regarding how clever they are. Holocaust Denial is a classic case. You SERIOUSLY think that after all this time, YOU have something to add, or a source that can be pointed to, that will simply SMASH the time tested and accepted fact that is The Holocaust. Well – stand in line with the other 2bit contenders. You couldn’t research your way through your own childhood utilising accepted methodologies – let alone change history. “The Jews made up the Holocaust”. Give me a fucking break you deadbeats.

    • Johnny Hammer

      You seem to have provided the perfect analogy of a man wielding stones in his glass house. Here is why I think your post is important enough to reply to:

      Open and honest public debate regarding the contentious points of this issue has rarely been entertained as a concept, let alone allowed to materialize in a forum with any substantial reach into the cocoon-like world of current Holocaust ‘fact’ acceptance. This cocoon has been strengthened by wide ranging and Draconian European law which has driven any such debate either underground, abroad, or as we are endeavouring to do here, online. 

      For too long the passive acceptance of the case presented by the victors of World War Two has coloured the glasses through which the period has been viewed by the general public. It is time to remove the distortion and pick up the magnifying glass instead, and this should be done without the fear of prison hanging over the heads of one side of the debating chamber. 

      There are too many unanswered questions about the curious use of hearsay and the substantial lack of physical evidence – both for the order to conduct the Holocaust and the execution of such a massive undertaking as the extermination of an entire people whilst fighting a world war – being silenced or mocked by those strong enough to ask them.

      You mention the use of ‘obscure pieces of “evidence”‘ as something that counts against people who are interested in covering as much ground around this topic as possible; I personally consider this to be essential in gaining insight into any matter, whatever its size or importance. You are right about things such as Rudolf Hoess’ ‘confession’ being obtained after several days of torturous interrogation being obscure; most casual observers of the argument wouldn’t even know who Hoess was, let alone the substantial role his ‘confession’ played in convicting the defendants in Nuremberg.

      I have no problem with you, with Jews, nor with debating difficult topics, and this is one of the most difficult. What I do have an issue with is the use of loaded dice in games of this degree of importance. I look forward to your open, objective, and considered rebuttal…

        What makes you so arrogant, as to assume this discussion hasn’t occurred before – or that any that have discussed it, were ignorant? What makes you so arrogant as to assume that this has not been covered thousands – if not millions – of times before, by people with more knowledge on the subject and closer ties to the original events ( “passive acceptance of the case presented by the victors of World War Two has coloured the glasses through which the period has been viewed by the general public”)? Your ego – that is what.

        • Johnny Hammer

          Admittedly it is a struggle to think of any salient topic that hasn’t been discussed at length by others before me. Is it arrogant to still want to talk about them?

          Countless subjects have been mulled over by scholars and laymen alike for thousands of years. Should we not talk about contentious issues such as ethics, beauty, war, and the existence of God because others have done so in the past? That would be a strange and unproductive attitude to have, and one that surely makes redundant almost any philosophical conversation worth initiating. 

          Science is also built upon the previous counterpoint and discovery of others, but any scientist who wants to excel at his profession excludes prior discussion in his chosen field of study at his peril.

          My original point was that serious discussion on the subject in question involving the opposing view has not been entertained publicly in Europe, the continent that saw the most death and destruction of any period of mankind over seven terrible years last century. The idea of conducting a debate has been censured, and against all democratic ideals it has also been made illegal. Even when the estimated figures on how many people were killed are revised and lowered by Allied countries, as well as on the plaque at Auschwitz of all places, it is still illegal to dispute the initial figure they had quoted.

          What kind of truth needs laws to protect it from debate? To think that an open and frank dissection of the points made on either side of this topic needs to go to Iran to be heard is an indictment on the state of freedom of speech in Europe.

          A man named Socrates encouraged his students to question everything and construct their own opinions on matters that were universally accepted by the scholars and thinkers of the day. These ‘experts’ sentenced him to death because of it. These days the ‘experts’ prefer to use European law to imprison dissenters and silence their critics. Almost Stalinesque, don’t you think?

          “The key to wisdom is this – constant and frequent questioning, for by doubting we are led to question and by questioning we arrive at the truth.”

  • TC_EIRE

    Wild speculation and conjecture at the end. It clearly was not Hoecker on the ramp!! And the conclusion he “put on another uniform for the day the SS were photographing the camp” is laughable! No solid proof it was him at all in that picture. Good Documentary over all though.

  • Tim

    Has the leader of Iran (Mahmoud Ahmadinejad) who today denounces the existence of the Holocaust and publicly calls for the destruction of Israel, seen any of this? If I were a citizen of Israel today, I would either join the Israeli air force, or move. Hitler, Himmler, Hoecker, whoever. Jesus!

  • Everett

    There were enough eye-witness accounts to prove the Auschwitz death camp was just that — a death camp. There is also forensic proof of the mass murders.

    It is madness to propose these deaths did not occur in vast numbers.

    Only anti-Semitic individuals (people who hate Jewish people) would dare disclaim Hitler and his evil regime’s vile crimes against mankind.

    They are people who would have willingly taken part in the Holocaust of WWII.

  • http://www.informationclearinghouse.info I be Toby saah, uh uhmm

    @ NAND Gate…Here, in the flesh is a denier, at least of the level at which murders were claimed. And murders they were, no doubt about that. I dont hate jews, but I dont have any particular liking for zionism or the promoters of. Does that make me anti semite? A phrase leveled at anybody who doesn’t accept that some omnipotent entity appeared to one man without any witnesses and promised them a desert as a homeland?
    Apart from “the other side” who use the word infidels to describe those who dont believe/accept their religion, I believe jews are the only other religion that uses derogatory phrases and words to describe those that dont believe in their particular brand. Lost in my mind for the moment, but nevertheless, on the tip of my tongue are a number of hebrew words (with unpleasant meanings) given to non believers. I’m sure all these torahs, bibles qurans etc were all the rage when the earth was flat and I feel fully sure that had I been without knowledge of what is now the known universe,I too would have subscribed to one or the other based I feel, purely on my location on the planet, but back to the point in hand. The poster known as Anonymous at the top of the page is quite right. Documentaries,entertainment industry films, dramas, newspapers and any other medium I’ve left out that is owned or funded by zionists will hardly go against the grain. Will they? OK, now I will proceed to actually watch the movie.
    FYI I was raised in/by catholic schools in England, and NO, I was not the victim of any abuse, other than a few strikes of a cane or a T square across my short trousered arse, or as in the case of one twisted Headmaster/Principle,Mr Docherty (The Doc) whacked across the outstretched thumb and fingers of upraised palms with 14 inches of serrated garden hose pipe. I know it was always carefully measured at 14″ because I stole it from him many times. As I did the 36″ thin cane favored by Mr Bird…the Deputy Headmaster/Principle. These days I am free of crazy beliefs that upon death I will be received to whatever particular paradise I’ve earned. Just like the flys you swat with a newspaper or SUV, or the ants crushed under your feet or corporately poisoned by whomsoever, I, just like your good self, will rot in the ground or water, or be scattered to the winds. Except for one thing which has just struck me…My body is promised to Gunter von Hagens et al.
    My…that was some ramble. Now. The Movie.

    The banality of evil. And yet, I can not help but reflect on the stories being told by Israeli soldiers about how they abuse, beat and torture Palestinians. How they too, like the Nazis depicted here, must perpetrate horrible things, and then go home to their families, lovers, and friends. One can only wonder that the Israelis have become apt students of the monsters they survived in the Holocaust to be so like the Nazis towards Palestinians. One thing that is a bit of revisionist history, this documentary begins with the insinuation that the Allies only became awaree of the concentration camps in 1944. This is entirely false.

    It is sickness to hear each time same story showing Jewish people as a victim, while they are killing millions of other people and many nations. They have %100 control in USA government. US government and president doesn’t care for Americans bur only Jewish community. Before the election each of them visit Jewish organisations and get their approval for for presidency even though their population is very low in US. They don’t meet with Mexican community even though their population is very high. Jewish are the one responsible killing millions in Iraq, Afghanistan because they pushed the US parliament for war.

    This makes me chuckle, i was waiting all film for the gas chamber photo’s and surprise surprise, its photos of them with there hair shaved, still not a nice thing, but it will stop the lice, to people dead on the grass, not many, maybe a hundred and thats that, there you go, prove that millions of jews were gassed, did you see the video of the gas chamber today, with the inside walls knocked down, no staining on the walls either. The ss officer only said what he did on tape to get a sorter sentence, he was out in 7 years.
    And i love burning the bodies in pits, using each body as fuel, haha, what bull shit, when your cremated, the ovens are over 3000c, for one body, but sorry burning 1000′s of bodies in pits esp in winter, with diesel and matches.
    Also fire and black smoke doesnt come out of a chimney when you burn bodies, but lies do.
    Did you know they had cash in there too, to buy from the shops they had, a post office, even a swimming pool, right next to a gas chamber,lol. Also had a football league, theatre, dont believe me, have a look.

      I’ve been to Berkenau-Auschwitz (I’m not Jewish, white and pro-Palestinian, in fact) and there was certainly no shopping, football or anything of that nature going on at the time. Whether it was 1/2 million Jews, 6 million Jews or 600 million it doesn’t make a difference to the suffering that occurred at the time. The numbers are debatable but the way people treated each other isn’t. Nobody should be forced from their home by an aggressive and dominating entity, let alone segregated and tortured or killed in the name of race or religion. Both sides could learn a bit.

    The key to understanding their mentality is EUGENICS and know that the whole Nazi party subscribed to the then popular belief that eugenics would improve mankind in the long run. Because of this, the Holocaust stands as a cautionary tale in all scientific ethics even today with DNA.

    Basically, Eugenics was a popular theory as a method of wiping out many of man’s illnesses and deformities by controlling those that were allowed to procreate. The Nazi’s decided that, by removing those people with “undesirable” traits (which were not only Jewish people but all Negroes, Gypsies, and anyone with a physical or mental disability) they were improving mankind, altogether. As I said, a cautionary tale on how rationalization can subvert the reasonable mind.

    One comment, also, on Joesef Mengle in particular. One of those interviewed for this documentary stated, “he had a PhD and a medical degree; he was very intelligent.” No. He was very KNOWLEDGEABLE and/or learned; not intelligent. Intelligence is how one USES the knowledge they have. But having knowledge does not make one more capable of using it.
