Holocaust Controversies: No Extermination At Monowitz

On the pro-Holocaust blog Holocaust Controversies [see note #1] which is maintained by a group of hardened Holocaust Enforcers such as Nicholas Terry, Andrew “Handy Andy” Mathis, Sergey Romanov and Roberto “Kinnstützenkamp” Muehlenkamp,  and some other people, they concede openly that extermination at Monowitz, in any shape or form, never happened. Now this is some progress, now they just need to let go off of their other unsubstantiated beliefs. How many “gas chambers” have they left to believe in, do anybody keep count of it? Do they actually know this themselves? Probably – they are after all Holocaust Enforcers.

In any case, let’s begin this entry the way it was supposed to start.


Right. Somebody asked one of their underlings the following question:

are you saying nobody was HOLOCAUSTED to DEATH at Monowitz, Nathan?


To which this “Nathan” responded accordingly:

As a matter of fact, yes. That’s what I’m saying. If I’m not mistaken, Roberto, Nick, JH [i.e Jonathan Harrison] and others would also say that too. Most people probably say that. At least, in the sense that it had no extermination function.


However, SS Judge Konrad Morgen [note #2 and #3] disagrees with these Holocaust Enforcers, and frankly, isn’t Morgen a better authority on the subject than these people, or could it be so embarrassing that Morgen’s interrogators simply forgot to coach him correctly? Because Morgen says this at the main Nuremberg Trial, as a witness:

THE PRESIDENT: Which is the witness talking about when he talks about extermination camps? Which are you talking about? Which do you call extermination camps?

HERR PELCKMANN: Please answer the question, Witness.

MORGEN: By extermination camps I mean those which were established exclusively for the extermination of human beings with the use of technical means, such as gas.

THE PRESIDENT: Which were they?

MORGEN: Yesterday I described the four camps of the Kriminalkommissar Wirth and referred to the Camp Auschwitz. By “Extermination Camp Auschwitz” I did not mean the concentration camp. It did not exist there. I meant a separate extermination camp near Auschwitz, called “Monowitz.”

THE PRESIDENT: What were the other ones?

MORGEN: I do not know of any other extermination camps.

MORGEN: I thoroughly investigated the entire stretch of territory and studied the layout and installations. The prisoners arrived on a side track in closed transport cars and were unloaded there by Jewish prisoners. Then they were segregated into able-bodied and disabled, and here already the methods of Hoess and Wirth differ. The separation of the disabled was done in a fairly simple way. Next to the place of the unloading there were several trucks and the doctor gave the arrivals the choice to use these trucks. He said that only sick, old persons and women with children, were allowed to use them. Thereupon these persons swarmed toward the transportation prepared for their use, and then he needed only to hold back the prisoners that he did not want to send to. destruction. These trucks drove off, but they did not drive to the Concentration Camp Auschwitz, but in another direction to the Extermination Camp Monowitz, which was a few kilometers away. This extermination camp consisted of a number of crematories which were not recognizable as such from the outside. They could have been taken for large bathing establishments, and that is what they told the prisoners. These crematories were surrounded by a barbed wire fence and were guarded from the inside by the Jewish labor details which I have already mentioned. The new arrivals were led into a large dressing room and told to take their clothing off.
HERR PELCKMANN: Is that not what you described yesterday?MORGEN: Of course,HERR PELCKMANN: What precautions were taken to keep these things absolutely secret?

MORGEN: The prisoners who marched off to the concentration camp had no inkling of where the other prisoners were taken. The Extermination Camp Monowitz lay far away from the concentration camp. It was situated on an extensive industrial site and was not recognizable as such and everywhere on the horizon there were smoking chimneys. The camp itself was guarded on the outside by special troops of men from the Baltic, Estonians, Lithuanians, Latvians, and also Ukrainians. The entire technical arrangement was almost exclusively in the hands of the prisoners who were assigned for this job and they were only supervised each time by an Unterfuehrer. The actual killing was done by another Unterf-i1hrer who let the gas into this room. Thus the number of those who knew about *these things was extremely limited. This circle had to take a special oath…

MORGEN: The extermination camp was under the direction of SS Standartenfuehrer Hoess. Hoess was commander of the Concentration Camp Auschwitz, and also of the extermination camp, Monowitz. Around Auschwitz were a number of labor camps and I have already said …

Apart from Morgen we have Sgt. Charles Coward, a British Prisoner of War, who testified at Nuremberg regarding the gas chamber at Monowitz [see note #4 and #5]. So, therefore, I’m a bit perplexed here. Let us imagine for a couple of minutes that I was a Holocaust Newbie and had just started to invest in the Holocaust ideology – what would I have made out from this story? It would send mixed signals. Who to believe, a bunch of Holocaust Enforcers, or a witness for the prosecution at Nuremberg along with a POW hero? This whole Holocaust story is a bit like “You tell me what to beLIEve and I’ll believe it”, something like that.

The “gas chamber” at Auschwitz III (Monowitz) vividly reminds me of: The Gas Chamber at Dachau: Now You See It, Now You Don’t [link]. Isn’t it a wonderful belief, a virtual smorgasbord to pick whatever you wish to believe in, and if you have a hand in the story – you can also remove the stuff gone bad, missing or simply unwanted…

Jolly good story, this Holocaust story!
