Auschwitz Trials, a complete outrage:­culty/marcuse/classes/133c/133­cproj/08proj/Pendas2006Curtis0­8z.htm

Defendants denied committing any crimes, or even knowing what Auschwitz was for.

Robert Jan van Pelt (born August 15, 1955 in Haarlem, Netherlands) is an author, architectural historian, professor at the University of Waterloo in Ontario and a Holocaust scholar. One of the world’s leading experts on Auschwitz, he regularly speaks on Holocaust related topics, through which he has come to address Holocaust denial. He successfully helped defend Deborah Lipstadt in the civil libel suit brought against her by David Irving.


The U.S. lead prosecutor in the Nuremberg War Criminal Tribunal against the IG Farben anticipated this development when he said, “These IG Farben criminals, not the lunatic Nazi fanatics, are the main war criminals. If the guilt of these criminals is not brought to light and if they are not punished, they will represent a much greater threat to the future peace of the world than Hitler if he were still alive.”

The scientific value of all these experiments, whether ordered by the IG Farben or not, was in fact zero. The test persons were in bad physical condition, caused by forced labor, insufficient and wrong nutrition and diseases in the concentration camp. In addition to this there were generally bad sanitary circumstances in the laboratories. “The test results in the concentration camps, as the IG laboratory specialists should have known, could not be compared to results made under normal circumstances”.
IG Farben. Includes a list of major Nazi war criminals.

Carl Krauch
2 years

Ter Meer, 3 years

Max Faust, d. 1980.
This Nazi criminal doesn’t seem to have done time

Butefisch, Heinrich d. 1969
3 years

Durrefeld, 3 years d. 1967 duerrfeld 18991967

Carl Wurster, chairman of the board of BASF until 1974 was, during the war, on the board of the company manufacturing Zyklon-B gas d 1974

After 1945, Carl Wurster remained plant manager with the approval of the occupying powers, until he was arrested in 1947 and charged in the I.G. Farben Trial in Nuremberg. Acquitted in 1948, he resumed the position of chairman of the managing board in 1952 and was the driving force behind the reestablishment of BASF, an honorary professor at the University of Heidelberg, and the holder of honorary doctorates and the title of honorary senator at several other German universities. In 1955, he was awarded the Great Cross of Merit with Star of the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany and the Bavarian Order of Merit. He retired in 1965, but continued to be active as a member and chairman of supervisory boards at numerous other German industrial concerns (such as Robert Bosch, Degussa, and Allianz).

Carl Winnacker, chairman of the board of Hoechst until the late 70’s, was a member of the Sturm Abteilung (SA) and was a member of the board of IG Farben. (?)

Curt Hansen, chairman of the board of Bayer until the late 70’s, was co-organizer of the conquest of Europe in the department of “acquisition of raw materials.” Under this leadership the IG Farben daughters, BASF, Bayer, and Hoechst, continued to support politicians representing their interests. (?_)

Otto Ambros, d. 1990
higher ups at A.Birkenau. Ambros was one of the inventors of Sarin gas. 3 years.

” Between 1941 and 1944, he visited the I.G. Auschwitz construction site a total of 18 times. Ambros was an active advocate of the use of concentration camp prisoners at the construction site”.

Nazi chemist Otto Ambros was a Director of I.G. Farben,
the company that had a major role producing the extermination gas used at Auschwitz.
At the Nürnberg trials, Ambros was convicted of slavery and mass murder.
Eight years was a surprisingly lenient sentence for the death of hundreds of thousands of Jews, yet it was commuted to only 3 years. Then, with the help of US Military Intelligence and the Central Intelligence Agency,
he was hired as a consultant by the US Army Chemical Corps,
by Dow Chemical Company, and by WR Grace Chair, J. Peter Grace.

Ambros was not the only murderer brought to this country
by US Military Intelligence and the Central Intelligence Agency.
d. 1990

Dr Otto Bickenbach, d 1971**
Experimented with poison gases.
(1901 -1971) was a virologist and professor of biology at the University of Strasbourg, who conducted experiments on humans in the concentration camp Struthof during the Second World War.

He conducted experiments with phosgene gas (for which he had yet found an antidote before the war) of 15 common criminals and gypsies in the gas chamber Struthof, who died in agony.

Testimony of a survivor quoted Steegmann:

“After 10 minutes I heard a thud – as if struck hands – were the lungs of two inmates who walked around “and foaming at their mouths , as well as their ears and noses. ”

Natzweiler , the Waffen SS left behind a rare document in which, contrary to the coded terminology generally employed by the Nazis, specific mention was made of “the construction of a gas chamber at Struthof.”

O­tmar von Verschuer
The founders of The Mankind Quarterly included some of the most renowned scholars of their time in the field of anthropology and related disciplines. In the course of its 45-year existence its editorial board has included the following distinguished scholars:

Mankind Quarterly, Founding scholars:
Genetics: David C. Rife (New Delhi), J.D.J. Hofmeyr (Pretoria); O. von Verschuer (Muenster) ***

Verschuer was Mengele’s mentor in racial hygiene. This is the quarterly mentioned in the Atlantic magazine post, below. So the scientist Matare who is quoted favors these ideas.

Lately, though, Mataré’s scientific attention has wandered from physics to eugenics. He has written two books on the subject and become a frequent contributor to a pseudo-scientific journal called Mankind Quarterly. Among its founders was a Nazi doctor who conducted experimental genetic research on cadavers he obtained from Auschwitz. (Verschuer)­/201003/dignitas-assisted-suic­ide/4


Hans Deichmann was there. A lawyer who represented IG Farben (constructors of Auschwitz) in its contract with Italian construction. He witnessed the murders and determined to become a ‘traitor’ .,*:IE-SearchBox%26rlz%3D1I7ADFA_en


**They admit there was a death camp at Auschwitz Birkenau -Monowitz.

Bosch and Duisberg were probably not guilty of war crimes, as they died before A.Birkenau were developed fully.

The use of slave labour for major German firms including Krupp, Siemens and I.G. Farben.

In the Auschwitz files correspondence was discovered between the camp commander and Bayer. It dealt with the sale of 150 female prisoners for experimental purposes and involved haggling over the price. One exchange notes: “The experiments
were performed. All test persons died. We will contact you shortly about a new shipment at the same price.­isting/1-news-items/12829-reme­mber-bayer-on-holocaust-memori­al-day

The Nazis stripped the corpses of everything useful. One gruesome exhibit – 7 tons of human hair – shows traces of poison gas, proving that the prisoners’ heads were shaved AFTER they had been gassed.­_Germany3_Auschwitz.htm­/2011/05/07/holocaust-survivor­-speaks-on-being-a-teen-in-aus­chwitz-birkeneau/ It should be mandatory reading for young people who can have no idea of what another generation went through

However Bild recently gleaned some key information from just a few of the 4,000 pages of the BND’s secret Eichmann file which tells another story. It shows that West German intelligence already knew in 1952 that Eichmann was in Argentina, where he was living with his wife and children under his own name.
Adenauer’s close adviser, Hans Globke, helped strip Jews of their rights under the Nazis was a widely publicized scandal, but it only distracted from the larger shame that countless lesser-known Nazis lived and worked under the radar throughout West German society, including in the ranks of the BND.­/09/arts/anniversary-of-adolf-­eichmanns-trial-sheds-light-on­-postwar-germany.html?_r=1&src­=me&ref=general

“In 1942, carried on by full knowledge and witness of the practices of mass murder at Auschwitz, “Topf and Sons” applied for a patent for a “continuous-operation corpse incineration oven for mass use.”

On the Topf site, they admit that “[Karl] Schulze and [Gustav Braun] returned in 1955.” Returned I presume to Erfurt, East Germany, where their former employer, Topf, was located? There were also two other guilty parties technical draughtsman Keller and a Herr Grosch. Kurt Pruefer and Fritz Sander both died in the Gulag.­s-www/index.php?id=72&l=1

Although Ernst-Wolfgang Topf last in the design and construction of technically undemanding Abfallvernichtungsöfen specialized, his company went bankrupt in 1963. On 23 February 1979 Ernst-Wolfgang Topf died at the age of 74 years in Brilon.

    In 1933 in reaction to the arrival of Jewish refugees in Palestine , Arab attacks on Jews were launched , and continued unabated until 1939.
    Nazi broadcasts beamed to Palestine , Syria and Egypt helped ensure Arab hostility helped ensure that Arab hostility towards the Jewish refugees from Nazism would be kept as high as possible. In response to Arab terror , and afraid of alienating Arab support , the British blocked hundreds of thousands of Jews , attempting to flee Nazi terror , to enter Palestine.

    History has shown that when anti-Semitism is allowed to spread beyond the cesspool of the mind that contains it, slaughter of innocents and the destruction of entire nations seem inevitably to follow. Today, Israel is about the size of the state of New Jersey, with a Jewish population of less than 1% of the world’s population. Yet, Iran’s president says the Holocaust is a “myth” and Israel “must be wiped off the map.”-which would mean the genocide of another 5 million Jews , nearly half of the world’s Jewish population . Over half of all Holocaust survivors today live in Israel (as do many descendants of Holocaust survivors), and it would be a hideous twist of history for these too to perish in the flames of anti-Jew hatred, as they would do if Israel was destroyed by forces of evil (God forbid that this should ever be allowed to happen!)

    And Venezuela’s Stalinist President , Hugo Chavez , states that “descendants of those who crucified Christ…have grabbed all the world’s riches for themselves.”

    Hilberg’s brilliant and dispassionate treatment of attempts throughout history to destroy the Jews sets a new standard for scholarship and for the historical analysis of emotionally charge subjects. Through his own efficient analytic framework of precedents, antecedents, and scope of organization, Hilberg gives us a lucid formula for both understanding and explaining the subtext, context, and pretext of the 1500-year old continuously running saga of anti-Semitism. The effect is to place the reader in the cockpit of the planners of one of the worst disasters known to man, the holocaust of World War-II. But more importantly, he also provides us with all the necessary facts that go with, and that load his framework.

    The context of the holocaust is 1500 years of progressive improvements in ways of addressing the so-called “Jewish problem (or threat),” and corresponding Jewish cultural adaptations to these improved attempts to annihilate them. The improvements have ranged from failed attempts by Catholics to convert Jews into Christians, to expelling them from Europe, to Hitler’s creation of a bureaucracy of industrialized death to implement his “final solution.” (The author summarizes this progression as conversion, expulsion, and annihilation.)

    The subtext of anti-Semitism ostensibly has always been about the “predatory Jewish character” but in fact has been about fears, fears of cultural, religious and ethnic differences and about independence from ordinary orthodoxy. It is precisely these fears that are the most easily serviceable, and most easily ignited into action during times of stress. They are best facilitated through hatred — especially when guided by a catalyst of evil, ignorance, demagoguery, or demented and corrupt leaders. Inexorably they pass through a process of condoned and sanctioned violence to collective murder. (Fear of Jewish independence and failure to accept the Christian Jesus as their religious messiah and savior have throughout history served as one of the key subtexts of anti-Semitism).

    Just as the pattern that serves as the subtext for anti-Semitism is generalizable to other forms of chauvinism, racism and hatred, so too is the pretext: The target is first demonized, dehumanized and vilified; and then disenfranchised, hounded and spatially as well socially segregated. This process of dehumanization then leads logically to, and serves as justification and collective psychological cover for, committing criminal acts against the targeted groups — including mass industrialized murder. (Jewish religious idolatry, and ethnic character flaws, i.e. their predatory business acumen and slipperiness, their fear of honest work, etc. has throughout history served as the pretext for justifying criminal acts against Jews).

    This book puts to rest the popular “magic bullet theory” of the holocaust: that explaining Hitler explains everything anyone would ever need to know about the holocaust. It does not. The anti-Semitic pressures along fault lines leading up to the holocaust had been building up for more than 1500 years. It was these pressures and not Hitler that bear the primary responsibility for the holocaust. Hitler just happened to be the demented catalyst that sparked an anti-Semitic eruption at a time when a demoralized German people needed a tonic for restoring their national pride

    Some of the parallels with early Nazi anti-Semitism and the new anti-Semitism of the 20th century , are chilling.

    For example the boycott of all Jewish shops , cafes and businesses in the 1930’s in Germany is echoed by the calls for sanctions and divestment against Israel and for boycotts of Israeli products and businesses , by academics , far-left politicians and trade unions , around the world today.Also , the cultural , professional and academic boycotts of Jews in Europe then , are echoed by the cultural , professional and academic boycotts of Israel and Israelis , including the banning of Israeli scholars and research today in various universities across the world , including North America and Europe.

    70 years ago the cry of the anti-Semites in Europe was ‘Jew , go to Palestine!’ . Today the cry of anti-Semites (Yes-anti-Semites!) around the world is ‘Jew-Out of Palestine’.
