Auschwitz

Some 20% of post-war Polish territory is made up of former German lands; hence, some 20% of today’s Polish towns and cities once bore German names. All place names have long since been Polonized – all, except for one town, which displays bilingual entry signs: Auschwitz. Ethnically speaking, Oświęcim was never German. So why would the fiercely nationalistic Poles retain the Germanized name? Because it is big business. For the world at large, Auschwitz is synonymous with the Holocaust, and it represents the pinnacle of Nazi evil. Yet here we do not focus on the symbol which Auschwitz has become, but on the Auschwitz camp and its numerous satellite camps, such as Birkenau, Monowitz, Harmense, Raisko, etc.

Auschwitz is the epicenter of the Holocaust, where more people are said to have been murdered than anywhere else. But what if we look critically into the evidence for this claim? Stäglich has so far been the only legal expert to critically analyze the foundations of what we today think we know about Auschwitz. His research results leave the reader at times breathless when confronted with the scandalous way in which judicial authorities bent and broke the law in order to come to politically foregone conclusions. New, revised and corrected edition.

Jürgen Grafs Artikel »Was geschah mit den nach Auschwitz deportierten, jedoch dort nicht registrierten Juden?«[1] sowie die von Arthur Butz unter dem Titel »Was widerfuhr den ungarischen Juden? Eine Antwort an Jürgen Graf«[2] darauf verfaßte Entgegnung hat im revisionistischen Lager die Diskussion über die heikle Frage der Judendeportationen aus Ungarn von Mai bis Juli 1944 neu entfacht. Mit diesem Thema haben sich dann auch Richard A. Widmann[3] und Samuel Crowell[4] auseinandergesetzt.

Die von mir im Verlauf der letzten Jahre erworbenen, den Spezialisten noch unbekannten Dokumente sowie die Neuinterpretation bereits bekannter Urkunden im Lichte der neuen Dokumentenfunde ermöglichen es mir nun, eine provisorische Bilanz der Frage zu erstellen, die fraglos den Ausgangspunkt für künftige, weitergehende Studien bilden dürfte.
