The Holocaust Is Undeniable - Why Question The Holocaust?

According to wikipedia the term "holocaust" (Heb., sho'ah) is derived from the Greek holokauston, which originally meant a sacrifice totally burned by fire; it was used in the translation of I Samuel 7:9, "a burnt offering to God". In the course of time it came to be used to describe slaughter on a general or large scale, and, especially, various forms of the destruction of masses of human beings. In the 1950s the term came to be applied primarily to the destruction of the Jews of Europe under the Nazi regime, and it is also employed in describing the annihilation of other groups of people in World War II. The mass extermination of Jews has become the archetype of GENOCIDE, and the terms sho'ah and "holocaust" have become linked to the attempt by the Nazi German state to destroy European Jewry during World War II.

The use of the Hebrew word sho'ah to denote the destruction of Jews in Europe during the war appeared for the first time in the booklet Sho'at Yehudei Polin (The Holocaust of the Jews of Poland), published by the United Aid Committee for the Jews of Poland, in Jerusalem in 1940. The booklet contains reports and articles on the persecution of Jews in eastern Europe from the beginning of the war, written or verbally reported by eyewitnesses, among them several leaders of Polish Jewry. Up to the spring of 1942, however, the term was rarely used. The Hebrew term that was first used, spontaneously, was hurban (lit., "destruction"), similar in meaning to "catastrophe", with its historical Jewish meaning deriving from the destruction of the Temple. It was only when leaders of the Zionist movement and writers and thinkers in Palestine began to express themselves on the destruction of European Jewry that the Hebrew term sho'ah became widely used. It was still far from being in general use, even after the November 1942 declaration of the Jewish Agency that a sho'ah was taking place. One of the first to use the term in the historical perspective was the Jerusalem historian BenZion Dinur (Dinaburg), who, in the spring of 1942, stated that the Holocaust was a "catastrophe" that symbolized the unique situation of the Jewish people among the nations of the world.

But did it happen exactly the way it is presented in the offical version of the Holocaust History, as an isolated historical event to exterminate the Jews - blamed soley on Germany, starting with the Reichskristallnacht (Night of Broken Glass) on November 9, 1938 and terminated with the liberation of the concentration camps or was there an obvious leading-up to the Holocaust?

The common explanation is that the Germans have always been anti-Semites, but history tells otherwise: Jews experienced a period of legal equality from 1848 until the rise of Nazi Germany. German Jews enjoyed full equality in the Weimar Republic, many receiving high political positions like foreign minister and vice chancellor. The Weimar constitution was the work of a German Jew, Hugo Preuss, who later became minister of the interior. Marriages between Jews and non-Jews became somewhat common from the 19th century; for example, the wife of German Chancellor Gustav Stresemann was Jewish.

What had happened in Germany or Europe that brought Hitler to power -originally an Austrian, convicted and incarcerated for High Treason- a man who blamed the Jews for the disastrous economy of pre-Nazi Germany and thus turned a whole nation into beastly Jew-haters and mass-murderers as the Germans in general are described in the Holocaust history?

To get a more complete picture we have to look back at World War I.

The Great War, World War One, consisted of two stages: conventional warfare that lasted from 1914 to 1916, and a war of desperate expedients, when both sides struggled for their own existences, lasting until the end. The two sides of the war consisted of the Allied Powers (France, Great Britain, Russia, the United States, and other smaller countries) and the Central Powers (Germany, Austria-Hungary, and Turkey/Ottoman Empire, along with other smaller country support).

Though Germany turned out to be the Central Power most involved in the war, there is little or no evidence that the Germans had planned for war. There are several fundamental causes that had brought the world to the brink of war: nationalism, imperialist competition, militarism, and the build up of prewar alliances. These growing appearance of these factors perhaps inevitably led to what was called the Great War, World War One that resulted in the Treaty of Versailles.

The Treaty of Versailles has become infamous for the harsh reparations it imposed on Germany. Perhaps even more notorious is the “War Guilt Clause” contained in the peace. The “War Guilt Clause,” Article 231 in the treaty, arose out of a controversy during the negotiations in the spring of 1919 concerning the nature of reparations that would be collected. It was argued whether or not to include war costs in the reparations to be levied or “just” civilian damages suffered. The Reparation Settlement was the worst condition set upon Germany—the country could not possibly hope to meet its demands and maintain financial security at the same time. Chambers et al state, “Germany was made liable for sums unspecified and without foreseeable end…”

This "War Guilt Clause" was in absolute contradiction to the fact that the US 67th Congress in the 4th Session (Nov. 20, 1922-Mar. 3, 1923) in Senate Document 346 stated plain and openly that “…the full responsibility for the First World War rests on the shoulders of the international Jewish bankers.”

The provision, after Germany’s Weimar Republic delegates signed the treaty on June 28, 1919, bound the German nation to accept full moral responsibility for all damages to the citizens of the Allied countries and for the precipitation of the war itself. The provision blatantly ignored Austria-Hungary’s culpability in the conflict, as that country was completely dismantled by a separate treaty. Public reaction in Germany to the treaty was to say the least unfavorable. In addition to the devastation of World War I, the reparations imposed on Germany precipitated a deep depression before 1924. After the Wall Street Crash of 1929, the US called in its loans to Germany, and the German economy collapsed. The Number of unemployed grew between 1928 and 1932 from 2 million to 6 million; people starved on the streets. Only after the Weimar Republic busted into national bankruptcy and the mark ceased to exist as a practical means of payment did the Allied countries base reparations on Germany’s ability to pay them. Because of the reparations, many Germans, in particular the industrialists who lost wealth and power with the Saar and Rhineland occupation by the French, proved to be hostile to the republic, maintaining that it had betrayed the German people by accepting the treaty.

Throughout the life of the Weimar regime, that became known as the Judenrepublik -though Jews comprised only a tiny minority of the German population- Jewish businessmen, journalists, and politicians were among its most active and ardent supporters. Through their commercial and banking activities, Jews contributed to the substantial economic development and reconstruction that took place during the Weimar era. Jewish firms accounted for nearly 80% of the business done by department and chain stores, 40% of Germany’s wholesale textile firms, and 60% of all wholesale and retail clothing businesses. Almost half of all private banks were owned by Jews, as were the largest and most successful of the credit banks and the majority of the newspapers.

The reference to front-page headline "Judea Declares War on Germany" on the March 24, 1933 edition of the British newspaper, the Daily Express,  followed in America by Samuel Untermeyer's speech on WABC in August 1933, declaring a 'holy war' by the Jews against Germany is usually rejected as a reaction to the Ermaechtigungsgesetz (Enabeling Law) that was introduced the same day but who knows that Bernard Lecache, President of the World Jewish League, on 07-20-1932 declared in Paris "Germany is our public enemy No.1. It is our object to declare war without mercy against her" even before the elections of 1932 that made Hitlers party the strongest in the German Reichstag?

As a largely overpopulated country, Germany was dependent on export. It could not exist and survive without export. Adolf Hitler's election to chancellorship marked the beginning of the end of presumptuous and unregulated Jewish influence in many areas of German affairs, including banking matters. To the Jewish Diaspora, the world's most powerful trading and political bloc, Hitler's election meant interruption and interference with the world's commercial and political cohesion in which Jews were heavily involved. As the boycott organised by world Jewry spread, German trade was hit particularly hard and during the first quarter of 1933, Germany's vital exports were less than half its 1932 trade.

"The fight against Germany has been carried out for months by every Jewish conference, trade organisation, by every Jew in the world.... we shall let loose a spiritual and a material war of the whole world against Germany." - (M. Jabotinsky, founder of Revisionist Zionism, Natcha Retch, January, 1934)

What was known at that time and why did the world turn a blind eye to it, and what happened at the same time in other parts of the world, primarily in Palestine?

The ideology of Adolf Hitler's Nazi Party was to enforce the establishment of an Aryan empire throughout Europe and Russia, a racial supremacy; Hitler vigorously supported Zionism’s proposal for Jewish emigration to Palestine from 1933 until 1940-41, yet on July 5, 1938, eleven days after Hitler annexed Austria, the EVIAN CONFERENCE (France), was called by President Roosevelt to discuss what to do about the Jewish refugees trying to escape Nazi Germany. Delegates of thirty-two nations attended and decided they could do very little. The Dominican Republic and Costa Rica were the only countries willing to take in Jews fleeing Europe - and then only for payment of huge amounts of money, leaving only the illegal immigration to Palestine for those who could escape Nazi Germany.


Instead of providing answers, the view back at history opens up more and new questions:

The estimated number of victims who died in the holocaust is not 6 but at least 11 million - by Religion approx. half of them were Jews, the other half were mostly Christians; by citizenship half of them were Poles. The first mass execution of World War II took place in Wawer, a town near Warsaw, Poland on December 27, 1939 when 107 Polish non-Jewish men were taken from their homes in the middle of the night and shot.

"All Poles will disappear from the world.... It is essential that the great German people should consider it as its major task to destroy all Poles."
- Heinrich Himmler

Why are Polish victims divided by religion (Jews and non-Jews, Christians) other victims by their ethnicity (Sinti and Roma - Gypsies); why do we find seperate numbers for victims with disabilities, European Freemansons, Communists, Homosexuals and Jehovah's Witnesses? Have Polish Jews been killed primarily because they were Jews or because they were Poles?

"Raised by parents who had survived the Holocaust, I heard many stories about the atrocities of this World War II horror. I learned how one of my family's homes in Poland was burned to the ground by Nazis. I learned that my uncle was shot in the head by Nazi soldiers because his family was hiding a Jewish woman. Painful as it was for them to speak about it, my parents [Frank and Ewa Pencak] felt it was important that I knew the stories of the Holocaust. It was only after I moved to the Los Angeles area several years ago that I realized that many people were not aware that millions of victims of the Holocaust were NOT Jewish. Outside the Polish community, I heard very little mention about the five million non-Jewish victims -- usually referred to as "the others".

Whenever I would say that my parents were survivors of the Holocaust, people would look at me oddly and say, "Oh, I didn't know you were Jewish?"

I realized that most people were not aware of any other Holocaust victims except Jews."

- Terese Pencak Schwartz

Instead of pointing to the total number of victims of the Nazi-holocaust as a horrendous Crime against Humanity we have reduced the crime by half and singled out a selected group, the Jewish victims - the only group counted in one number, regardless of citizenship or possible other criteria mentioned above.

Sometime in the past the official number of Jews murdered by Nazi Germany was fixed at 6 Million. Since then the number of victims who died at Auschwitz has been reduced from 4 million to 1.3 million, approx. 1 million of them were Jews, yet the official number of 6 million remains unchanged.


With 6 million jewish victims The Holocaust has become the ultimate crime, impossible to be exceeded. What about the more than 5 million "others" - are they to be forgotten because they don't have a lobby?

Whoever raises doubts regarding this official version is branded anti-Semite, a revisionist or even a Holocaust denier, accused of dishonoring the victims or even jailed for demagoguery as is the case in some parts of Europe.
Independent scientific researches are rejected for the same reason. Don't dare to question it.


Is there a chance that some of the opposing arguments might be correct?

The similarity of this behavior to the 9/11 cover-up is more than obvious. Even the arguments are the same: it would dishonor the victims, yet in the case of 9/11 only those in charge could be dishonored. If 9/11 was to teach us but one lesson it is never to judge an event or incident at face value for reality might be different.  

For this reason we will present on the following pages little-known details of historical events that should be under close scrutiny for the possibility of either suppression or exaggeration for political reasons, or even a hoax - not only for the doubts on the official version of the story, but also for the fact that the reaction to these doubts meets the same criteria.

As the official versions are mostly well known, we will restrict our posting to contradicting documents, articles, and/or videos for their arguments are hardly presented in the Mainstream Media.

Instead of being a warning: "Never again", The Holocaust has become justification for "an eye for an eye" policy and occupation. Those rightfully fighting illegal occupation on their own soil have been branded "terrorists", thus stripping them of their undeniable right according to the Geneva Convention of which the U.S. and Israel are signatories.

"We have joined the 'War on Terror'" is the latest vindication by Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert regarding the ongoing occupation and land grab of Palestine in the name of Zionism. It hardly matters to Mr. Olmert that many Israeli Jews reject his plan and demand justice for the people he's now persecuting.

What hypocricy!

Though The Holocaust has stopped at the end of WWII, it is justification for an ongoing holocaust in the Middle East, veiled as a war on terror with victims or "casualties" that could exceed those of The Holocaust.

In order to honor all the victims we need to question the offical Holocaust History to find out what really happened, whatever the outcome.

Not only do we need to know what happened, we also need to know how it was possible to happen. We need to recognize the first signs of a dictatorship or false propaganda - once we have lost our civil liberties it is hardly possible to prevent states' terror from being carried out in our names. 

If there ever was a chance to give the complete holocaust its place in history as the last one in a long line of Crimes against Humanity, the political misuse has already prevented this.

Patriotism and Nationalism have again prevailed against Humanity. 

"Never again" has to be brought back to its true meaning, a reminder to the inalienable right of life and integrity that should apply to all peoples, regardless of nationality, race or religion.

In this, we not only bow to all victims of the Holocaust but also to the victims of occupation and the War on Terror.
