    the biggest misconceptions are the ones promulgated by the nazis themselves -- that the camps were housing criminals (yes there were a few, but most were either political opponents or non germans slave laborers.

    The six million figure used in the Jewish death toll is an estimate for total lives lost. These Jewish lives were taken by a number of groups, not just Nazis. The six million figure includes Jewish lives lost in other countries as well, not just Germany, and by the various modes of killing, not just camp deaths. Ukrainian deaths were due to Russian and Nazi perpetrators alike, some killed on "acquired" German soil, others killed on Russian soil, some killed outright, others  worked or starved to death.

    The total Murdered By the Nazis in WW2 was 15 Million including the 6 million Jews

    The Nazi Euthanasia Centre at Bernburg operated from 21 November 1940 to 30 July 1943 in a separate wing of the State Sanatorium and Mental Hospital Bernburg on the River Saale  It was one of several euthanasia centres run by the Nazis under their official "Euthanasia Programme", later referred to after the war as Action T4. A total of 9,384 sick and handicapped people from 33 welfare institutions and nursing homes as well as around 5,000 prisoners from six concentration camps were killed here in a gas chamber using carbon monoxide gas.

    Each extermination camp operated differently, yet each had designs for quick and efficient industrialized killing. While Höss was away on an official journey in late August 1941 his deputy, Karl Fritzsch, tested out an idea. At Auschwitz clothes infested with lice were treated with crystallised prussic acid.

     The crystals were made to order by the IG Farben Dupont chemicals company for which the brand name was Zyklon-B. Once released from their container, Zyklon-B crystals in the air released a lethal cyanide gas. Fritzch tried out the effect of Zyklon B on Soviet POWs, who were locked up in cells in the basement of the bunker for this experiment. Höss on his return was briefed and impressed with the results and this became the camp strategy for extermination as it was also to be at Majdanek.

    Besides gassing, the camp guards continued killing prisoners via mass shooting, starvation, torture

    The first period of operation in Belzec and Sobibor lasted about three months, in Treblinka five weeks. After this initial phase, those holding key positions in Operation Reinhard decided to introduce "improvements" into the camps so as to increase their extermination capacity. This decision was brought on by Himmler's order of July 19, 1942 that all the Jews in the General Government, with a few exceptions, were to be eradicated by the end of that year.

    The main problem was finding a way to speed up the extermination procedure, i.e., increasing the absorption capacity of the gas chambers.

    Belzec was the first camp in which large gas chambers were built. The old wooden structure containing the three gas chambers was demolished, and on the same spot a larger, strong building was erected, which was 24 m. Iong and 10 m. wide. It contained six gas chambers. Statements differ as to their size; they fluctuate between 4 x 4 m. and 4 x 8 m. The new gas chambers were completed in mid July. (StA Munich 1, AZ: 22 Js 68/61, pp. 2602, 2613.)

    When the horrors became public what happened in the Nazi death/work camps, German people said they didn't know.

    Dave (aka 'nonpartisan')

    Why do you keep repeating this stuff.

    You have been told - I don't know how many times - that the figure published in the NY Times was *not* a body count. It was an estimate based on the size of the Jewish population in Europe in 1945 compared with the pre-war population.

    So the Auschwitz figures would have made no difference at all.

    You are, with the figure 4 million, referring to the Auschwitz plaque put up by the Russians - it never referred to 4 million Jews but to 4 million *people* killed in Auschwitz - again you know this.

    You also know that "the Zionists" did not declare war on Germany in 1933. You base this on a headline in the notoriously unreliable 'Daily Express' - which doesn't actually mention Zionists - it says "Judea declares war on Germany"

    Here's one of theExpress's more recent headlines:

    "End of the world: 'Jesus Christ soon to return' as Bible expert reveals signs in the skies"

    And you say:

    "Between Britain and the Zionist (the Jewish so-called "leaders" who claimed to champion everything Jewish), both had the finances (and supposedly, the reason) to move each and every Jew out of Germany - both had worked to establish a homeland for the Jews in Palestine, yet neither would lift a finger to help them."

    Where do any Zionists 'claim to champion everything Jewish'?

    When and how did Britain "work to establish a homeland for the Jews in Palestine"?

    The Zionists did help to move Jews out of Germany - you yourself mention the Haavara Agreement.

    And:

    "But after Kristallnacht, the British government agreed that some Jewish children under the age of 17 could temporarily come to Britain to safety.Over the coming nine months, thousands were rescued."

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/46877532

    And you end with this:

    "It was as if...both wanted to see the Jews become martyrs, to justify their declarations of war against Germany (Zionists - 1933, Britain - 1939)."

    The Zionists did not - could not - declare war on Germany in 1933

    (see above)

    The UK told Hitler that if he invaded Poland they would declare war on Germany

    He did invade. They did declare war. They never claimed that Hitler's treatment of the Jews was their reason for making the declaration or pursuing the war.

    So, no, it wasn't as if...

    Just in case anyone misses the comments below Dave has appeared to tell me I am talking 'drivel' and it's not worth his time to address it.

    He also says, of the 1945 article which mentions 6 million Jews:

    " - I'm sorry, but if you saw the word "estimate" where I didn't, please point it out."

    It's here:

    The headline to the article in the NY Times was:"6,000,000 JEWS DEAD; Jacob Lestchinsky Estimates Reduction in Europe Since '39"

    https://www.nytimes.com/1945/01/08/archives/600000...

    I think you'll find I am not the one talking 'drivel.'

      toll - not 'estimated effects' of anything.
      And you have been told repeatedly that the estimated death toll was based on those figures. I don't understand what your problem is.

    Homicidal gas chambers, mass exterminations, the idea that Britain and their own Zionist leaders cared about them.

    A New York Times ran a story on January 8th, 1945 that had a headline reading "6 million Jews Dead". The interesting thing is, Auschwitz wasn't liberated by the Soviets until January 25, 1945 - 17 days AFTER the story ran in the Times.

    How did the author of that story know there would be 6 million Jews dead if 4 million (1.1 million today - revised) wouldn't be found for another 17 days? Where is he getting his body count?

    Most of the deaths in the camps were the result of disease epidemics - this fact is seldom mentioned by the "6 million exterminated" agenda. Between Britain and the Zionist (the Jewish so-called "leaders" who claimed to champion everything Jewish), both had the finances (and supposedly, the reason) to move each and every Jew out of Germany - both had worked to establish a homeland for the Jews in Palestine, yet neither would lift a finger to help them.

    It was as if...both wanted to see the Jews become martyrs, to justify their declarations of war against Germany (Zionists - 1933, Britain - 1939).

      Or as Dave (currently nonpartisan) has said "the Nazis tried to care for them..."
