None Could Be So Craven
In an earlier post entitled "Tender Hearts of the SS" we dealt with a profound and unanswerable contradiction created by the Holocaust proponents as they argue their low-tech vision of the "homicidal gas chambers."
As we noted in that post, we have gone from the high-tech, automated vision of death popularized by Hollywood and the press to a decidedly low-tech version of reworked delousing chambers at Auschwitz and wooden rooms filled with the exhaust of diesel engines at Treblinka.
These methods are, of course, labor intensive, requiring battalions of workers to drag corpses out of these makeshift facilities to civilian style cremation ovens in the case of Auschwitz, and to open burial pits in the case of Treblinka.
All of which prompts many skeptics to ask why the SS did not avail itself of much simpler low-tech means. Why didn't the SS simply shoot them? In the case of Treblinka, right into the open burial pits!
To which we get one of those truly incredible answers; namely, that they could not find SS troops willing to do this sort of work:

"Actually, the reason for not using bullets was because it took a lot of soldiers to shoot that many people every day and yes indeed the SS tried this and had "morale problems" which are also documented in their memos etc. Ordinary soldiers had a problem with mowing down men, women and children all day for very long."
As we have noted in the previous two posts in this series, the problem with Holocaust belief is the facility with which the images of camp life and conditions conjured by the proponents change, depending upon the point to be proven.
First, we have Holocaust protagonists believing that "Jewish Soap" can be extracted from emaciated gas chamber victims.
Next, we have Holocaust protagonists asserting that the SS resorted to primitive, labor-intensive gas chambers because all the "Ivan the Terribles" in that murderous "criminal organization" were conveniently missing when it came time for a few volunteers in each camp to wield a machine gun, or to fire it from the anonymity of the inside of a tank. All of which prompted one skeptic to note that, whatever SS troops might or might not be willing to do, they certainly would not be willing to enter gas chambers to fetch dead bodies shortly after a gassing. Such duty is dangerous and the SS troops would protest.
For which, without so much as a blink, our Holocaust protagonists had one of the most profoundly disturbing rationalizations conceived by man.
According to our first Holocaust proponent, work crews comprised of hundreds of Jews apparently pulled jewish corpses from the gas chambers to make room for the next batch of jews being herded to their deaths.
From: email@example.com (Jamie McCarthy) Date: Tue, 27 Sep 1994 18:47:10 -0400:
"First of all, do you suppose the Nazis cared? The people moving the corpses were the Sonderkommando: Jews who weren't ever going to leave the camp alive. (At least, that was the plan.) They recycled the Sonderkommando units every few months, the recycling process being an extermination of the old workers and their burial by the new. When your workers are under a death sentence anyway, you don't worry about OSHA regulations that might put them in danger."
According to our second Holocaust proponent, not only did large work gangs of "condemned" jews pull jewish corpses from the chambers, but these jewish work gangs also herded their fellow jews into the gas chambers and dumped the cyanide pellets through the hole into the acid:
From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Barry Shein) Date: Fri, 30 Sep 1994 06:57:13 GMT:
"Since what you are actually discussing is a murder device operated primarily by people who themselves are to be murdered (prisoners) then setting such a standard is unnecessary. This isn't a factory concerned with workers' health, this is a murder device and the more it kills the merrier. The guards only stand close enough to make sure the prisoners herd the others in and dump the cyanide pellets thru the hole into the acid."
Our second Holocaust proponent also casually informs us that these jewish camp inmates participated in the slaughter of their own kind for extra food, and a few weeks reprieve from the inevitable and well understood death sentence:
From: email@example.com (Barry Shein) Date: Fri, 30 Sep 1994 07:09:59 GMT:
"They were herding their fellow inmates, by the dozens if not hundreds, into chambers for execution. And you think the guards should have been concerned about a morale problem? "As to fresh meat, they were herding their fellow inmates, by the dozens if not hundreds, into chambers for execution. And you think the guards should have been concerned about running out of help?"
"If you get to do the loading then *maybe* you get to live another day, maybe you even eat a little better under starvation conditions."
And a third Holocaust proponent confirms the fringe benefits of participating in the murder of your own kind:
From: firstname.lastname@example.org (AnnyA666) Date: 2 Oct 1994 11:29:01 -0400:
"The Sonderkommandos were provided with gasmasks. They were well-fed for the short period they were employed, which is the main reason most of them took the job. (Cit: Fillip Mueller "Eyewitness Auschwitz")"
According to these Holocaust proponents, while no volunteers could be found within the SS to wield a machine gun to kill jews, plenty of jews could be coerced into killing their own kind in low-tech gas chambers!
To save the "homicidal gas chamber" story, the proponents are willing to make tens of thousands of ordinary jews in the camps the craven killers of their own kind. And all for some food and a short reprieve from their well understood death sentence!
All of this begs again the question,- why?
Why would the advocates of the Holocaust story stoop to such incredibly contradictory stories? What exactly are the passions that lead to these contradictions? Few passions, aside from raw hatred, are that strong!
Does the Holocaust story have so much importance as a tool for forcing the rest of us to obey the values of "tolerance" "compassion" and "diversity" that the proponents of this story are willing ultimately to sacrifice their own in this manner?
Talk about slandering the memory of the dead!
It is no wonder that the Zionists in Israel could not, at first, accept the Holocaust story. In the words of Tom Segev, from his work, "The Seventh Million" p 183-184:
"A few days after he came home from his mission to Hungary, paratrooper Yoel Palgi went to a veterans' club in Tel Aviv. It was June 1945. Everyone received him warmly and with admiration, he later wrote. They all wanted to hear what had happened over there. But no one was interested in accounts of Jewish suffering. They wanted a different story, about the few who had fought like lions. "Everywhere I turned," Palgi wrote, "the question was fired at me: why did the Jews not rebel? Why did they go like lambs to the slaughter? Suddenly I realized that we were ashamed of those who were tortured, shot, burned. There is a kind of general agreement that the Holocaust dead were worthless people. Unconsciously, we have accepted the Nazi view that Jews were subhuman.... History is playing a bitter joke on us: have we not ourselves put the six million on trial?"
"The term "sabon" (soap) expresses the contempt that native-born Israelis felt towards Holocaust survivors. (Segev The Seventh Million 1993 p183-4)."
Any hint of redemption for these "Sonderkommando" camp survivors must come at the expense of the "homicidal gas chambers."
Are there such hints?
Indeed there are!
As one advocate of the "homicidal gas chambers" notes, there was a rebellion at Treblinka in which the SS lost control of the camp to prisoners. The cause of the rebellion, apparently, was lack of food:
From: email@example.com (Barry Shein) Date: Wed, 28 Sep 1994 07:43:28 GMT:
"In order to starve to death thousands of people you need good lock-up facilities because it takes a while and they get pretty desperate. The Nazis did lose Treblinka to prisoner riots, for example."
It is hard to imagine prisoners rioting over food and not over the slaughter of their own kind. If they were under a death sentence anyway, why not fight?
But then, such are the demands of "Shoah Business."
Yggdrasil has no way of knowing whether this improbable story of "homicidal gas chambers" is true or not.
However, if forced to chose between the improbability of craven jewish camp inmates assisting in the slaughter of their own kind, or the improbability that these low-tech homicidal gas chambers existed in the first place, the choice is an easy one.
Yggdrasil would cast his vote in favor of the bravery and humanity of the camp survivors and against the advocates of these strange and twisted stories of "homicidal gas chambers."
The fever swamps of the Holocaust story are a modern creation, provoked and sustained by modern passions.
Handle with caution.
