Treblinka

By its victim count, Treblinka is by far the largest and probably most notorious of the four “Aktion Reinhardt” camps, which according to orthodox historiography served as “pure extermination camps” for the mass murder of Jews in gas chambers. The other camps are: Belzec, Chelmno/Kulmhof, and Sobibór.



An alleged revisionist forgery In 1990 German revisionist Udo Walendy published an issue of his journal Historische Tatsachen (Historical Facts) entitled Der Fall Treblinka (The Treblinka Case) that focused on the numerous absurd allegations surrounding this supposed “pure extermination camp”. On one of the first pages of this publication Walendy …

Jean-François Steiner's 1966 book Treblinka purports to be a factual account of what happened at the German concentration camp during the Second World War. It was, he says, based on the eyewitness testimony of 40 of the 600 inmates who escaped during the August 2, 1943 prisoner uprising. In the …

1. Diesel Exhaust and Zyklon B Most National Socialist homicidal gassings were supposedly committed with Diesel exhaust rather than cyanide or Zyklon B.

Throughout all these years, the Exterminationists have continued to peddle the claim that there was a definite attempt by National Socialist Germany to exterminate all Jews and so they proffer the "Gerstein Statement" in support of their theory which popularly has been dubbed the "Holocaust." The "Gerstein Statement" was supposedly …

I have seen the complete nine and one half hour documentary, Shoah, which purports to be "An Oral History of the Holocaust."

Let’s say, hypothetically speaking, that someone wanted to design and implement a systematic process for mass-murdering hundreds of thousands of people, in a short period of time, using poisonous gas. How might one go about doing this? This is the question that must have been brought to bear on certain …

During recent years there have appeared from time to time new books on the Treblinka “death camp”.

In any trial of even the most ordinary murder, one can expect an abundance of information about the murder weapon, including a detailed description of the weapon and how it was used. Surely, with regard to murder as novel and as bestially spectacular as the alleged mass-murder of millions of …

Die eigentlichen Schwierigkeiten waren bisher allerdings überwiegend …
