Even without Sobibor and Treblinka, we seem to be missing a lot of dead you-know-whos, don’t we?
The comments below can be found in the 1948 report of the International Committee of the Red Cross and were extracted, originally, from chapter nine of ‘Did Six Million Really Die?’
"Civilians deported on administrative grounds, who were arrested for political or racial motives because their presence was considered a danger to the State or the occupation forces… were placed on the same footing as persons arrested or imprisoned under common law for security reasons."
"As many as 9,000 (food) parcels were packed daily… From the autumn of 1943 until May 1945, about 1,112,000 parcels with a total weight of 4,500 tons were sent off to the concentration camps."
“Parcels were sent to Dachau, Buchenwald, Sangerhausen, Sachsenhausen, Oranienburg, Flossenburg, Landsberg-am-Lech, Flöha, Ravensbrück, Hamburg-Neuengamme, Mauthausen, Theresienstadt, Auschwitz, Bergen-Belsen, to camps near Vienna and in Central and Southern Germany. The principal recipients were Belgians, Dutch, French, Greeks, Italians, Norwegians, Poles and stateless Jews."
"The Committee was in a position to transfer and distribute in the form of relief supplies over twenty million Swiss francs collected by Jewish welfare organisations throughout the world, in particular by the American Joint Distribution Committee of New York."
"The Committee's delegates were able to visit the camp at Theresienstadt (Terezin) which was used exclusively for Jews and was governed by special conditions. From information gathered by the Committee, this camp had been started as an experiment by certain leaders of the Reich...
These men wished to give the Jews the means of setting up a communal life in a town under their own administration and possessing almost complete autonomy. . . Two delegates were able to visit the camp on April 6th, 1945. They confirmed the favourable impression gained on the first visit."
"In the chaotic condition of Germany after the invasion during the final months of the war, the camps received no food supplies at all and starvation claimed an increasing number of victims. Itself alarmed by this situation, the German Government at last informed the ICRC on February 1st, 1945...
In March 1945, discussions between the President of the ICRC and General of the S.S. Kaltenbrunner gave even more decisive results. Relief could henceforth be distributed by the ICRC, and one delegate was authorised to stay in each camp."
"Not only the washing places, but installations for baths, showers and laundry were inspected by the delegates."
"A large proportion of the Jewish minority had permission to stay in the country, and at certain periods Slovakia was looked upon as a comparative haven of refuge for Jews, especially for those coming from Poland. Those who remained in Slovakia seem to have been in comparative safety until the end of August 1944, when a rising against the German forces took place.
While it is true that the law of May 15th, 1942 had brought about the internment of several thousand Jews, these people were held in camps where the conditions of food and lodging were tolerable, and where the internees were allowed to do paid work on terms almost equal to those of the free labour market."
"The Jews from Poland who, whilst in France, had obtained entrance permits to the United States were held to be American citizens by the German occupying authorities, who further agreed to recognize the validity of about three thousand passports issued to Jews by the consulates of South American countries."
"Until March 1944, Jews who had the privilege of visas for Palestine were free to leave Hungary."
"The Government of the United States... now specifically repeats its assurance that arrangements will be made by it for the care of all Jews who in the present circumstances are allowed to leave."Not what we're taught in school, is it?
Time for some new (and better) teachers, methinks.
