From the Records of the Frankfurt Auschwitz Trial

Published: 2003-02-01

In 1999, Germar Rudolf managed to buy from a lawyer a complete set of the investigation records leading up to the infamous "Auschwitz trial" at Frankfurt, Germany, in 1963-1966. Only after settling into his new (temporary) home in America in 2002 did he find the time to start reading them. This series contains a number of papers he subsequently wrote and published on his analysis of these records. The series got interrupted when Rudolf got arrested and deported back to Germany in late 2005.

Unfit for Labor in Auschwitz[1] "Since I now was no longer fit to work, I feared that I would be gassed. It had become general knowledge that all those unfit for work were gassed." This is from the statement by witness Rajzla Sadowska (p. 657), who thus follows the …

Internal Contradictions The statements of witness Erwin Valentin made during the pre-trial investigations leading to the Auschwitz trial contain some very telling contradictions. Valentin stated that in 1940 he was sent to the Jewish labor camp of Neutomischel (Warthegau) due to his non-Aryan (that is: Jewish) descent, where he, as …
