Torture and Abuse
In the minds of many, the words Gestapo and torture belong together. Yet when reading about Allied tortures after the war (British, American, Soviet), a new standard has to be defined.
From 1940 to 1943, Rudolf Höss was the commandant of the infamous Auschwitz Camp. Today’s orthodox narrative has it that during this time, some 500,000 people were killed at Auschwitz in gas chambers. Yet when Höss was captured after the war, he confessed to having killed some 2,500,000 during that time. 40 years later, it was revealed that Höss had been severely tortured by his British interrogators. This is an excerpt of the upcoming study by Carlo Mattogno. It tells the gripping story of Höss’s capture and mistreatments, and presents the texts of the various “confessions” which the British extorted from Höss while in their custody.
History contains many precedents for every element of Höss’s dolorous fate from the time of his capture. The oldest is hundredth of years old: A Thousand and One Arabian Nights. Here the link between the two stories is explained.
Already in 2005, British journalist Ian Cobain wrote two papers published by the British daily The Guardian in which he presented evidence that the British occupation forces in Germany systematically tortured German inmates after the war in order to have them sign confessions which then could be used to either indict them or others for war crimes.
Now Cobain has followed up with a new article, this time published in the London Daily Mail about torture centers in Britain itself, where again German inmates were tortured into signing questionable confessions. The following paper discusses the implications this information might have.
Bad Nenndorf is a bathing resort in the fringe of the uplands of the River Weser’s watershed where people with joint ailments are treated with mud baths and soaks in sulfurous waters. On the grounds of the spa suffused with sulfur fumes stands a stately mud-bath house from the 19th Century. At the entrance, cure-seekers are greeted by the goddess Hygeia. Late in the 1920s, the bathhouse was extended into a massive complex with innumerable bathing huts.
Did the US occupational forces conducting war-crimes trials in Germany after World War II employ second- and third-degree interrogation methods and other illegal measure to obtain the convictions they wanted? A new book by a mainstream historian disputes this, claiming instead that those trials were paragons of fairness and justice. This denial of the obvious could hardly be more brazen.
