No More Bullshit

Christopher Spivey / The Daily Chimp.

 

Now, far be it for me to say that the Daily Chimp reads what I and my commenter’s have to say and reacts accordingly, but these ‘coincidences’ do appear to happen time and again.

For instance, following an article on Lee Rigby, which questioned if the two ‘terrorists’ were even in prison, someone left a comment saying that; no one he knew within the prison system had seen or heard hide nor hair of Michael Adebolajo or Michael Adebowale.

And, low and behold, a day or so later it was reported that Adebolajo had been attacked in Belmarsh.

This report was unusual in itself because as a general rule, the whereabouts of high profile prisoners and any trouble involving them is not reported on whilst they are on remand.

Adebolajo & Adebowale are in court later today by the way, so any articles in the MSM  won’t be one of those  coincidences.

Certainly, the Daily Chimp knows exactly who I am. I know this as one of my readers rang the newspaper up about an article that I had written only to be met with a reply of “oh him, he’s got it in for us” or words to that effect.

Anyway, following on from my article about The Cunt Cameron and the Holocaust, there are – surprise, surprise – two stories about Auschwitz in today’s Daily Chimp, along with another article which is relevant and related in an around about sort of way.

Now, once I had stopped rolling on the floor laughing (or ROFL as it is more commonly known), at the absurdity of this first article, a number of things were instantly obvious to me mainly by there absence.

However, before I discuss this first fairy tale, I want to add a quick word about the fast growing numbers of those – myself included – who do not believe that the number of Jews murdered by the Nazi’s in concentration camps etc, was anywhere near the 6 million mark – Or that the camps were anywhere near as bad as what our Zionist leaders would have us believe,  as well as being sceptical about  the existence of the  gas chambers.

What I have noticed is that we have all been banded together under the umbrella of Holocaust deniers by TPTB.

Course, the reason for this is so as the pathetic, spineless sheeple will associate a Holocaust denier with being a Jew hating, far Right Wing, Neo-Nazi thug.

Very much in the same way that anyone who challenges any official government story is branded a Conspiracy Theorist, which translates in that leak infested brain belonging  to your average citizen as a tin foil hat wearing fruitcake.

Yet neither label could be further from the truth.

You see, those branded  Holocaust denier’s do no such thing and people such as me are not Conspiracy theorist’s since I have never warn a tin foil hat in my life.

Yet we can instantly be dismissed in Joe Public’s opinion because anyone who denies that the Holocaust happened would have to be bonkers… Which they would.

And anyone wearing a tin foil hat to stop their self from being zapped with micro waves – or whatever other reason they wear them for – has to be a fruit cake… Which they would be… Probably.

But I don’t deal with theories, I deal with fact and probable fact based on overwhelming evidence.

And the fact is, Holocaust deniers do no such thing as deny the Holocaust.

Of course the Nazi Holocaust happened although throughout history there have been many other Holocausts, a lot more brutal with far more dead.

Yet people either haven’t heard about them, or if they have, they have long since forgotten about them simply because they serve no purpose to the elites by having them thrust in your face every five minutes.

As a demonstration of how in ya face the Nazi Holocaust is, you need do no more than answer these 6 questions taken from my article ‘keeping the faith':

Question 1.  How many British died in World War II?

Question 2.  How many Americans died in World War II?

Question 3.  How many Germans died in World War II?

Question 4.  How many Russians died in World War II?

Question 5.  How many people died in World War II in total, to the nearest 10 million?

How are you doing so far?  Not too well I suspect.  OK let’s make it a little easier…

Question 6.  How many Jews died in World War II?  Source

So, you scored one out of six then?

And yes, the Nazi Holocaust happened, but nowhere near that  number of Jews died.

For a start, there are still survivors of the Holocaust concentration camps living today, nearly 70 years after it ended. Yet we are meant to believe that all children were gassed on arrival at the camps.

And, even if they wasn’t gassed they would still of surely perished through disease or hunger?

So why are so many still alive?

In fact, official records show that there were still well over a million survivors of the so called ‘Death Camps’ still alive in 2011.

Course, the Plaque fitted to the gate at Auschwitz in 1950, proclaiming; 4 million died here at the hands of Nazis, is also a dead give away.. No pun intended.

You see, that plaque has since been replaced with another stating that; 1.5 million died here mainly Jews.

Were the history books revised at the same time?

Were they fuck.

That 1.5 million figure was once again reduced with the Polish authorities stating that less than a Million Jews died in Auschwitz.

Moreover, according to sources, that figure looks as though it is going to be again revised and lowered to less than 700,00o.

4 Million minus 3.3 Million equals 700,000.

So you now have a deficit of 3.3  million people mainly Jews silently removed from Holocaust history… Which halves that figure of 6 million.

Neither did any Jews die in the so called gas chambers, because they didn’t exist, hence there is not a single photo amongst the thousands upon thousands of Holocaust photographs showing dead bodies in what we are told were the Gas Chambers.

The following is again from my article ‘Keep the faith':

 “No-one in the USA was more knowledgeable about the functioning of [penitentiary] gas chambers than Fred A. Leuchter, an engineer from Boston.  I went to visit Leuchter on February 3 and 4, 1988 and found that he had never asked himself any questions about the ‘gas chambers’ in the German camps.  He had simply believed in their existence.  After I began to show him my files, he became aware of the chemical and physical impossibility of the German ‘gassings’ and he agreed to examine our documents in Toronto.

After that, at Zündel’s expense, he left for Poland with a secretary (his wife), a draftsman, a video-cameraman and an interpreter.  He came back and drew up a 192-page report (including appendices).  He also brought back 32 samples taken, on the one hand, from the crematories of Auschwitz and Birkenau at the site of the homicidal ‘gassings’ and, on the other hand, in a disinfection gas chamber at Birkenau.  His conclusion was simple: there had never been any homicidal gassings at Auschwitz, Birkenau, or Majdanek.”  Robert Faurisson, historian

Never the less, if you genuinely seek the truth, then you can read all about that 6 million dead Jews hoax in the afore mentioned article.

Now, this first article by the Daily Chimp would have you believe that Heinrich Himmler ordered a Rabbit breeding program in Auschwitz and other concentration camps.

Well why not? After all, the Nazi’s were unlikely to start a Rabbi breeding program were they?

Moreover, Hitlers right hand man, Himmler appears to have had so little to do that he was able to be involved in every aspect of this breeding program… Well not necessarily the fucking  part, but you know what I mean.

Then again,  knowing the elites sexual penchants like I do,  he may very well have taken part.

Never the less, we are then told that the Rabbits were bred for their fur to make coats, socks and  undercrackers for the military… STOP LAUGHING.

Obviously, Poland must be too cold to breed sheep and cattle.

The article then says that inmates were made to look after the Rabbits which they had to feed with the best fresh vegetables while the prisoners feeding them only had dust to eat.

Now, despite the absurdity of this article, the Daily Chimp goes on to say that there is plenty of photographic evidence to back this ‘factual’ rabbit story up… But neglects to publish any.

The article also states as fact that:

Some of these inmates were even executed if their S.S. overseers believed they were not treating their rabbit charges with enough respect.

While prisoners were starved, beaten and tortured to death in Auschwitz, Buchenwald, Sachsenhausen and Dachau, the rabbit hutches in these and 27 other camps camps were spacious and heated. 

We are then treated to a photo of these starving, brutally treated inmates, who actually look rather healthy. One even looks as if he is about to burst the button on his jacket.

However, what I found interesting is that there is not a single mention of the 6 million death toll in the article.

Moreover, you may have noticed from reading the above, that the article states:

While prisoners were starved, beaten and tortured to death in Auschwitz, Buchenwald, Sachsenhausen and Dachau

Not one mention of any gas chambers though. Very strange.

The second Daily Chimp article is about a new book out in regard to the women who allegedly helped perpetrate the Holocaust.

The book, as far as I can make out from the article, is in my opinion pure propaganda and bullshit.

Again, there is not one mention of the 6 million and the only mention of gassing is that of German mental patients in a castle which had been converted into a mental hospital.

The articles first account of violence committed by a woman is that of  Senior SS Officers wife Erna Petri.

How improbable does this sound :

Blonde German housewife Erna Petri was returning home after a shopping trip in town when something caught her eye: six small, nearly naked boys huddled in terror by the side of the country road. 

Married to a senior SS officer, the 23-year-old knew instantly who they were.

They must be the Jews she’d heard about — the ones who’d escaped from a train taking them to an extermination camp.

But she was a mother herself, with two children of her own. So she humanely took the starving, whimpering youngsters home, calmed them down and gave them food to eat.

Then she led the six of them — the youngest aged six, the oldest 12 — into the woods, lined them up on the edge of a pit and shot them methodically one by one with a pistol in the back of the neck…

… She had followed her husband to Poland and lived in a mansion overseeing a vast estate for the Race and Resettlement Office of the SS, with ‘sub-human’ Slavs as slaves.

So she found 6 near naked boys by the side of the road who had escaped from a train taking them to a concentration camp.

Fair enough I suppose, except:

  1. If they escaped from a train, why were they now in clear sight by the side of the road, presumably with signs hung around their necks saying: “Jewish Escapee, please feed me”.
  2. Why were they nearly naked and how were they all together? I mean, Concentration Camp bound train passengers were told that they were being sent to labour camps and all children were loaded onto the trains with their families and belongings.
  3. How did they escape from the train when they were all locked from the outside.

And then, she took them home, got them warm, fed them, presumably slipped out while they were eating to dig a mass grave, led them into the woods and shot them… OH NO ITS ANOTHER TRUE STORY.

Except its not true.

Erna Petri and her husband, Horst who was not a senior officer in the SS – unlike the Queen & the Ducks 3 brother in laws who were senior SS Officers – were tried together for various crimes, none of which appear to include the shooting of 6 runaways by Erna.

Although she was found guilty of shooting Jewish Children amongst others.

The couple were found guilty at their trial with Horst being sentenced to death and Erna receiving a life sentence in prison.

Their case was listed as being Case Nr.1073 and their crimes were all committed in the Ukraine.

The charge sheet lists their occupation as being a Management couple in charge of the SS-estate Grzenda and lists their victims as being:  Foreign Labourers, German Soldiers, Jews, Civilians.

German Soldiers!!! Woops.

Erna was convicted of : Participation in chasing after escaped Jews. Shooting of Jewish men and children who had been caught or who were discovered wandering. Mistreatment of girls employed at the estate. Delivery of female Ukrainian workers into a concentration camp.

Although she was convicted of shooting Jewish men and children, there is no mention of murdering them, which put another way, suggests that her victims didn’t die.

Had they done, she too would have swung.

Other crimes listed in the book include:

Another SS wife, Lisel Willhaus, wife of a camp commandant, used to sit on the balcony of their house and take pot shots at Jewish prisoners with her rifle.

The Author appears to be getting Lisel confused with her husband Gustav, the Commandant of Janowska labour camp.

According to camp inmate Alexander Black, Willhaus, allegedly for the “amusement” of his “wife and six year old daughter” one day took pot shots at prisoners, killing 2 and severely wounding a third.

Another of the fairy tales included in the book is this one:

Also in Poland was Vera Wohlauf, whose husband Julius commanded a police battalion ordered in 1942 to round up 11,000 Jewish inhabitants of a small town for transportation to Treblinka for liquidation.

She sat by her husband in the front seat of the lorry that led a convoy of killers to the town, and stood in the market square brandishing a whip as nearly a thousand who resisted the round-up or collapsed in the summer heat were beaten to death or shot.

She was pregnant at the time, a further incongruity.

Can you imagine a pregnant woman whipping people to death? Bit of an exertion and not good for the baby I would have thought.

However, while it would make a good Hollywood script, the story is once again only a half truth

Captain Wohlauf was the commanding officer of First Company, Police Battalion 101, at that time conducting mass executions of Jews in eastern Poland.

After the first major killing action in the town of Jozefow, Frau Wohlauf joined her husband for a delayed honeymoon.

During the next few weeks, Vera Wohlauf, now pregnant, witnessed several killing operations at her husband’s side.

Accompanied by Frau Lucia Brandt, wife of Lieutenant Paul Brandt, also of Police Battalion 101, they were witnesses to the day-long massacre and deportation of the Jews in Miedzyrec on August 25. Other wives of officers were party to all this as were a group of Red Cross nurses.

Nope, no mention of a whip there.

Moreover, the perpetrators were not Nazi SS:

These were not men specially trained to carry out mass executions by shooting people in the back of the skull. The men of Batallion 101 were just street cops mainly from Hamburg. That’s why the book mentioned is entitled, “Ordinary Man”. Source

There are many other fabricated stories of horrors in the book allegedly committed by women during the Holocaust all along the same lines.

For instance  Johanna Altvater , who allegedly called a little Jewish girl over, told her to close her eyes and open her mouth for a sweet, and on doing so, Altater put a gun in the little girls mouth and blew her head off… Like you do.

However, since the first 3 I researched turned out to be bollocks, I couldn’t be arsed to look into any more.

Besides, apart from Erna Whatsisface – her of the life sentence – all the other women mentioned in the chimp article were either tried and acquitted or released after questioning.

Now remember, this is the Daily Chimp, an MSM newspaper reporting on this new book so if the women were acquitted or released after questioning, then they were innocent.

Look at how the propaganda rag was running stories on Michael Turner (Kevin Webster) just a week or so ago, with headlines such as “He should never have been charged”.

Turner, it seems, will now make a fortune from the trial, and the message this conveys by the  Daily Chimp, is that Turner was acquitted so why shouldn’t he… He is innocent.

It seems theses cunts want it all ways.

However, as I said at the beginning, the Daily Chimp always seems to come up with stories on the same topics as  my more controversial articles, following their release.

Now, obviously the nay sayers will tell me to get over myself or brand me as being paranoid… Ho hum.

But here is the thing, this Daily Chimp article was published on the 25th of September 2013 and has the sub heading: Chilling new book has unearthered thousands of complicit German women.

Yet the writer of the book, Wendy Lower made all this information freely available in July 2010, at the very latest – as you can see from the photo below or an article from the Jewish World website  found by clicking HERE  … Don’t laugh.

 

Alright, the book may be new but the information contained in the book has been freely available for over 3 years.

Hmmm.

Article number 3 by the Daily Chimp is, as I said, only related in a round about way.

The article carrys the headline:

The clues found near Mary Magdalene’s home that suggest Jews and early Christians once worshipped together

Excavations of an ancient synagogue found in a city where Mary Magdalene is thought to have lived have thrown up clues about how the Jewish and Christian religions developed. 

I can only presume that they found a pair of Mary Magdalene’s dirty knickers or something, to be able to come up with that information, but the message is loud and clear, once you know the way that the Daily Chimp operates.

The message is that Jews and Christians are good people, on the same side… Lets kill the Muslims.

You really couldn’t make this shit up, don’t cha know.

 

 

*UPDATE 8 AM 26/9/13

How bizarre!

It would appear that since I started writing this article last night, another article about Auschwitz was added to the Daily Chimp website.

And, coincidentally enough this extra article includes the very same photo that I used for the main photo at the top – minus the speech bubbles of course.

Moreover, this new article not only makes mention of the gas chambers and the 6 million Jews murdered, it also states that:

Some 1.5 million people perished at Auschwitz, mostly Jews but also Roma, Poles and others, between 1940 and 1945.

I will say it again; how bizarre… It is almost like a story line that you would watch on the long running TV series, The Twilight Zone.

You can read this extra article by clicking  HERE

Course,  in stating that fact about the 1.5 million, as opposed to the original 4 million, the Daily Chimp fails to mention that if this was true, everyone would have been taught that eight and a half million Jews perished in the Holocaust.

And that my friends, would never do since it would have been out of sync with all the other historical events which happened long before the Holocaust in regard to catastrophes involving 6 million 4 by 2’s… Just saying

Perhaps the Daily Chimp has installed a direct line to my computer now.

 

 

 

Operation Munchkin: Bizarre Nazi plan to breed giant Angora rabbits in concentration camps for fur-lined clothes for Hitler’s men

  • Starving inmates of concentration camps were forced to grow fresh vegetables to feed the animals
  • Some were even executed by the SS for not showing the animals the proper respect
  • The brain child of Heinrich Himmler rabbit breeding programmes existed at 31 death camps
  • He wanted their fur for lined coats for the Luftwaffe pilots, cosy socks for U-Boat personnel and warm underweat for the infantry
  • Animals given heated hutches and ‘plenty of space’ often just yards from where prisoners lived in squalid, over-crowded and freezing blocks

Details of a bizarre Nazi plan to breed giant Angora rabbits in concentration camps to provide fur-lined clothing for Hitler’s armed forces has been unearthed in a German archive.

‘Operation Munchkin’ as it was known, was the brainchild of sinister S.S. chief Heinrich Himmler who was had a career as a trained chicken farmer before he became the architect of the Holocaust.

He ordered a breeding programme for the rabbits and specified that they were to be raised in luxury just yards away from the most terrible places of humanitarian places on earth.

While prisoners were starved, beaten and tortured to death in Auschwitz, Buchenwald, Sachsenhausen and Dachau, the rabbit hutches in these and 27 other camps camps were spacious and heated. 

 

The furry residents were also given a daily supply of fresh vegetables -probably more than the human inmates forced to tend them saw in a month.  

The idea was for the rabbits to produce enough fur to make lined coats for Luftwaffe pilots, cosy socks for U-Boat personnel and warm undergarments for the infantry in winter according to the German newspaper Der Spiegel.

The plans were detailed the ‘Angora book’ which was discovered hidden at his home on the fringes of the Tegernsee lake in Bavaria in 1945.

Apparently he deliberately hid it there for fear that it would fall into enemy hands.

It contains 150 photos of fluffy rabbits, some being cared for by concentration camp prisoners in their trademark striped ‘pyjama’ uniforms.

Some of these inmates were even executed if their S.S. overseers believed they were not treating their rabbit charges with enough respect.

The breeding programme began in 1941 shortly after the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union.

Himmler got the idea for utilising rabbits for wool production after reading of a small-scale scheme that was started during the First World War.

He wrote at the time: ‘Throughout Europe it is my intention to establish breeding stations in concentration camps’ and even decreed that they should be kept in pens where they had ‘plenty of space.’

Often their hutches were just yards away from barrack huts designed for 200 where upwards of 800 prisoners lived.

In Dachau, the first such camp and the one which became a model for all that followed, he ordered the cultivation of peppers which were intended to feed the rabbits.

Himmler, who was also obsessed with creating the perfect blonde, blue-eyed ‘Aryan’ master race of Germans, immersed himself in every aspect of the plan. 

But like many other Nazi ideologies Himmlers plans failed to match up to reality.

A chart in his book counted 6,500 rabbits by the end of 1941 and 25,000 by 1943.

But by that year, when the project finally stopped as the war began to turn disastrously against Germany, the total amount of wool collected amounted to less than five tons.

When the camps were liberated many empty hutches were found but the rabbits were long gone.

Jack DeWitt, one of the liberators of Dachau near Munich himself ‘liberated’ a fur-lined jacked which he found on a pile in a storeroom at the camp where 36,000 people were murdered between 1933 and 1945.

He called it his ‘bunny coat.’

The Nazi women who were every bit as evil as the men: From the mother who shot Jewish children in cold blood to the nurses who gave lethal injections in death camps

  • Chilling new book has unearthered thousands of complicit German women
  • At least half a million witnessed and contributed to Hitler’s terror
  • Have been dubbed the ‘primary witnesses of the Holocaust’
  • Secretaries typed the orders to kill and filed the details of massacres
  • Only a small number of women were called to account for their crimes

At the heart of Nazi killings: Irma Grese was a concentration camp guard and one of the few women to be called to account for her crimesAt the heart of Nazi killings: Irma Grese was a concentration camp guard and one of the few women to be called to account for her crimes

Blonde German housewife Erna Petri was returning home after a shopping trip in town when something caught her eye: six small, nearly naked boys huddled in terror by the side of the country road.

Married to a senior SS officer, the 23-year-old knew instantly who they were.

They must be the Jews she’d heard about — the ones who’d escaped from a train taking them to an extermination camp.

But she was a mother herself, with two children of her own. So she humanely took the starving, whimpering youngsters home, calmed them down and gave them food to eat.

Then she led the six of them — the youngest aged six, the oldest 12 — into the woods, lined them up on the edge of a pit and shot them methodically one by one with a pistol in the back of the neck.

This schizophrenic combination of warm-hearted mother one minute and cold-blooded killer the next is an enigma and one that — now revealed in a new book based on years of trawling through remote archives — puts a crueller than ever spin on the Third Reich.

Because Erna was by no means an aberration. In a book she tellingly calls ‘Hitler’s Furies’, Holocaust historian Professor Wendy Lower has unearthed the complicity of tens of thousands of German women — many more than previously imagined — in the sort of mass, monstrous, murderous activities that we would like to think the so-called gentler sex were incapable of.

The Holocaust has generally been seen as a crime perpetrated by men. The vast majority of those accused at Nuremberg and other war crimes trials were men. 

The few women ever called to account were notorious concentration camp guards — the likes of Irma Grese and Ilse Koch — whose evil was so extreme they could be explained away as freaks and beasts, not really ‘women’ at all.

Ultra-macho Nazi Germany was a man’s world. The vast majority of women had, on Hitler’s orders, confined their activities to Kinder, Küche, Kirche — children, kitchen and church. Thus, when it came to responsibility for the Holocaust and other evils of the Third Reich, they were off the hook. 

But that, argues Lower, is simplistic nonsense. Women were drawn into the morally bankrupt conspiracy that was Hitler’s Germany as thoroughly as men were — at a lower level, in most cases, when it came to direct action but guilty just the same.

Ironically, it was the professional carers who were the first to be caught in this evil web. From the moment the Nazis came to power and imposed policies of Aryan racial purity, countless nurses, their aprons filled with morphine vials and needles, routinely slaughtered the physically disabled and mentally defective.

Pauline Kneissler worked at Grafeneck Castle, a euthanasia ‘hospital’ in southern Germany, and toured mental institutions selecting 70 ‘patients’ a day. At the castle they were gassed, which she decided was not that bad because ‘death by gas doesn’t hurt’.

Johanner Altvater, who killed Jews for sport

Meanwhile, midwives were betraying a whole generation of German women by reporting defects in unborns and newborns and recommending abortions and euthanasia, as well as sterilisation of mothers.

From the outset, Lower concludes, ‘women made cruel life-and-death decisions, eroding moral sensibilities’. A line had been crossed. It was no big step when the racial purification process turned to the Final Solution of exterminating millions of Jews.

That Jews were the enemy and their annihilation the answer was taken for granted by millions of women who would later deny knowing what was going on under their noses.

 

Lower, though, dubs them ‘primary witnesses of the Holocaust’.

The worst outrages took place in the ‘Wild East’, Hitler’s newly acquired (by military conquest) territories in Poland, Ukraine and other parts of overrun Russia. At least half a million young women joined in this colonisation process, and became accomplices to genocide on an unprecedented scale.

A mass of secretaries, for example, typed the orders to kill and filed the details of massacres. This placed them at the very centre of the Nazi murder machinery, but they, like so many others, chose to shut their eyes and benefit from their proximity to power.

But, picnicking in the country on their days off, how did they miss the mounds that hid mass graves, the gagging smell of rotting corpses? Whose clothes and possessions — plundered from ghettos or confiscated at camps and killing fields — did they think they were cataloguing for redistribution back home?

Trainloads of booty went back to Germany in what Lower calls ‘the biggest campaign of organised robbery in history’. And German women, she charges, were among its prime agents and beneficiaries.

Even more caught up in the criminal madness were administrators such as Liselotte Meier, who worked so closely with her strutting boss, an SS officer, that they were almost indistinguishable. She joined him on shooting parties in the snow, hunting and killing Jews for sport.

She was hanged aged 22 in 1945 and him in 1946

 

In the early phases of the Holocaust, massacres were generally by shooting. In her area of Belarus, she coordinated the arrangements with the executioners and even decided who lived and who died.

She spared the life of the Jewish woman who did her hair, while another secretary removed from a woman from the death line who hadn’t yet finished the sweater she was knitting for her.

Secretaries had another important role, too. After each operation, it was usual for the SS killers, many of them drunk on schnapps, to seek solace in the women’s quarters, whether for sexual release or a shoulder to cry on after the exertions of mass execution.  In support of the men, women even manned refreshment tables during executions so the killers could take a break.

But much worse than these active accomplices were the women who killed — often the wives of SS officers. Erna Petri — callous dispatcher of those six Jewish boys — was one such Frau. She had followed her husband to Poland and lived in a mansion overseeing a vast estate for the Race and Resettlement Office of the SS, with ‘sub-human’ Slavs as slaves.

Another SS wife, Lisel Willhaus, wife of a camp commandant, used to sit on the balcony of their house and take pot shots at Jewish prisoners with her rifle.

Also in Poland was Vera Wohlauf, whose husband Julius commanded a police battalion ordered in 1942 to round up 11,000 Jewish inhabitants of a small town for transportation to Treblinka for liquidation.

She sat by her husband in the front seat of the lorry that led a convoy of killers to the town, and stood in the market square brandishing a whip as nearly a thousand who resisted the round-up or collapsed in the summer heat were beaten to death or shot.

She was pregnant at the time, a further incongruity.

In the Ukraine, 22-year-old secretary Johanna Altvater played an even more prominent role in a massacre while working for regional commissar Wilhelm Westerheide.

During the liquidation of a Jewish ghetto, Fräulein Hanna, as she was known, was seen in her riding breeches prodding men, women and children into a truck ‘like a cattle herder’.

The Holocaust has often been depicted as a crime perpetrated by men, but women also submitted themselves to the bankrupt morals championed by Adolf Hitler The Holocaust has often been depicted as a crime perpetrated by men, but women also submitted themselves to the bankrupt morals championed by Adolf Hitler

 

She marched into a building being used as a makeshift hospital and through the children’s ward, eyeing each bed-ridden child. Then she stopped, picked one up, took it to the balcony and threw the child to the pavement three floors below. She did the same with other children. Some died, and even those who survived were seriously injured.

Her speciality — or, as one survivor put it, her ‘nasty habit’ — was killing children. One observer noted that Altvater often lured children with sweets. When they came to her and opened their mouths, she shot them in the mouth with the small pistol that she kept at her side.

The new book involves information from archives which revealed some women were as guilty as the menThe new book involves information from archives which revealed some women were as guilty as the men

 

On another occasion, she beckoned a toddler over, then grabbed him tightly by the legs and slammed his head against a wall as if she were banging the dust out of a mat.

She threw the lifeless child at the feet of his father, who later testified: ‘Such sadism from a woman I have never seen. I will never forget this.’

Close to the mass-shooting site where the ghetto inhabitants were herded to await their deaths, Westerheide and his deputies partied with some German women. Altvater was among the revellers, drinking and eating at a banqueting table amid the bloodshed.

Music playing in the background mixed with the sound of gunfire. From time to time, one of the Germans would get up, walk to the shooting site, kill a few people and then return to the party.

Violence to children was also the trademark of Gestapo wife and mother Josefine Block, who liked to carry a riding crop and lash out at prisoners waiting to be deported.

A little girl approached her, crying and begging for her life. ‘I will help you!’ Block declared, grabbed the girl by the hair, smashed her with her fists, then pushed her to the ground and stamped on her head until she was dead.

Desperate Jewish parents often approached Block to ask for help, assuming that, as a young woman and mother, she’d be sympathetic.

But she would use her pram to ram Jews whom she encountered on the streets and was said to have actually killed a small Jewish child with it. Such treatment is an affront to any sense of humanity, let alone womanhood — all the more so because most of these crimes went unpunished.

Erna Petri was the exception and spent more than 30 years in prison. But all the others mentioned here were either tried and acquitted or released after questioning.

Their defence was often to play the helpless woman card and blame the men. ‘I was just a secretary,’ pleaded Johanna Altvater. Meanwhile, the millions of other women who were complicit in these odious events got on with their lives after the war as best they could, as if the whole Hitler era had been a nightmare to be put aside and forgotten once everyone had woken up.

Yet the deep stain remains. Thirteen million women were actively engaged in the Nazi Party. Not all of these could have been innocent bystanders.

Lower says: ‘To assume that violence is not a feminine characteristic and that women are not capable of mass murder has obvious appeal: it allows for hope that at least half the human race will not devour the other, that it will protect children and so safeguard the future.

‘But minimising the violent behaviour of women creates a false shield.’

At least half a million women, she says, witnessed and contributed to the operations and terror of Hitler’s genocidal war. ‘The Nazi regime mobilised a generation of young women who were conditioned to accept violence, to incite it, and to commit it.

‘This fact has been suppressed and denied by the very women who were swept up in the regime and by those who perpetrated the violence with impunity.

‘But genocide is also women’s business. When given the “opportunity”, women too will engage in it, even its bloodiest aspects.’

For those tempted to think that things are different now, consider those shocking photographs earlier this month of a beheading in the Syrian bloodbath.

What was even more gut-wrenching than the gore was to see children looking on, unperturbed, drawn into a terrifying topsy-turvy morality, just as German mothers and children were 80 years ago.

Perhaps, too, the executioner wielding the sword went home to a wife who mopped his brow, in the same way as Hitler’s firing squads did. The lesson of the atrocities of the Holocaust is that they are not something of the past to be filed away and forgotten, but still very much with us.

The clues found near Mary Magdalene’s home that suggest Jews and early Christians once worshipped together

  • Excavations taking place on an ancient synagogue found in Migdal, Israel
  • Migdal is the modern name for the city where Mary Magdalene lived
  • Jewish artefacts date back to the time of Jesus and the rise of Christianity
  • Archaeologists claim this crossover suggests the two religions once worshipped together

Excavations of an ancient synagogue found in a city where Mary Magdalene is thought to have lived have thrown up clues about how the Jewish and Christian religions developed.

Jewish artefacts found at the site in Migdal on the shore of the Sea of Galilee – previously known as Magdala – include a table carved with a Menorah, yet the temple itself, as well as a coin, discovered on the site dates back to the time of Jesus and the rise of Christianity in the region. 

Archaeologists believe this combination suggests Jews and Christians may have once used the holy site to worship together, according to Israeli news site Haaretz, and it could lead to discoveries about how and when Jesus and Magdalene met.

WHY IS MIGDAL SIGNIFICANT?

 

Migdal is the modern-day name for the village of Magdala, situated on the northwestern shore of the Sea of Galilee at the foot of Mount Arbel.

Magdala is said to have been the hometown of Mary Magdalene, one of Jesus’ most loyal followers.

She is referred to in the gospels as Mary, and it is believed that her name was a variation of ‘Mary from Magdala’.

Researchers are studying the site looking for clues about how and when Magdalene first met and began following Jesus.

The synagogue was first uncovered in 2009 dating back to the 1st Century – around 2,000 years ago.

It measures 11 x 11 metres, and the walls of the room plus the six columns that supported the ceiling, which was probably made of wooden beams and mortar, would have been covered with frescoes painted in seven colours including dark red, yellow and blue panels in black and white frames.

The excavation revealed the synagogue was renovated in around 40 of 50 C.E, before being abandoned shortly before 68 C.E.

This year is significant because it was the time of the Great Revolt of the Jews against the Romans.

Archaeologists have also uncovered various Jewish artefacts, which Haaretz describes as ‘firsts in archaeological excavations, in Israel and even worldwide.’

 

 

However, a coin found on the site dated back to 29 A.D – a year before Jesus is said to have arrived in the area and four years before his crucifixion – making it potentially a location of interest for Christianity as well.

Magdalene is described as one of Jesus’ most loyal followers and it is also thought she was one of the first people to speak to him after his resurrection. 

She is referred to in the gospels as Mary, and it is believed that her name was a variation of ‘Mary from Magdala’.

However, there is no direct connection with Mary and the town of Magdala in the bible.

Researchers are studying the site looking for clues about how and when Magdalene first met and began following Jesus.

Father Juan Maria Solana, director of the Magdala Center told Public Radio International: From the Jewish point of view, the position is clear; it’s a first-century synagogue.

The dig at Magdala is being carried out by archaeologist Dina Avshalom-Gorni and Arfan Najar in collaboration with Marcela Zapata.

‘From the Christian point of view, we cannot doubt that Jesus would have been there sometime.

Yet Marcela Zapata, from the Anáhuac University of Southern Mexico City told on The Huffington Post: ‘there is no archaeological evidence to prove Jesus ever set foot inside.’
