  Why do you lie so blatantly? You were involved in a thread just a
  few days ago where your misstatements about Dachau were corrected
  now you come back and lie about it *again*?

  That was never a secret.

  Oh, spare us your inveterate lying.



      "Tell us who were there that it never happened"

      Remarks of Felix L. Sparks given on May 8, 1995 at the
      U.S. Holocaust Museum.

      I have before me a document prepared by the Institute for
      Historical Review, Costa Mesa, California. It can be purchased
      from that so-called historical institute at a price of $2.00 for
      ten copies. This so-called document professes to prove that the
      Holocaust never happened. It asserts that there is no evidence
      to prove that any member of the Jewish faith was ever persecuted
      or died at the hands of the Nazi Government of Germany. Among
      other things, it is claimed that gas chambers and crematoriums
      were constructed after the war as tourist attractions. The
      document contains a total of 66 questions and answers to prove
      that the Holocaust never happened.

        I beg to disagree with the authors of this totally sick and
      false literature. I am in a good position to disagree. On the
      morning of April 29th, 1945, I was a lieutenant colonel
      commanding an infantry battalion of the United States 45th
      Infantry Division, with the mission of breaching the defenses of
      the city of Munich, Germany, in my assigned combat
      sector. Shortly after I had launched an attack against the outer
      defenses of Munich, I received an order to immediately proceed
      to the Dachau Concentration Camp. I knew nothing about the camp,
      nor had I ever heard of it.

        Our first experience with the camp came as a traumatic
      shock. The first evidence of the horrors to come was a string of
      forty railway cars on a railway spur leading into the camp. Each
      car was filled with emaciated human corpses, both men and
      women. A hasty search by the stunned infantry soldiers revealed
      no signs of life among the hundreds of still bodies, over 2,000
      in all.

        It was in this atmosphere of human depravity, degradation and
      death that the soldiers of my battalion then entered the camp
      itself. Almost all of the SS command guarding the camp had fled
      before our arrival, leaving behind about two hundred lower
      ranking members of the command. There was some sporadic firing
      of weapons. As we approached the confinement area, the scene
      numbed my senses. Dante's Inferno seemed pale compared to the
      real hell of Dachau. A row of small cement structures near the
      prison entrance contained a coal-fired crematorium, a gas
      chamber, and rooms piled high with naked and emaciated
      corpses. As I turned to look over the prison yard with
      un-believing eyes, I saw a large number of dead inmates lying
      where they has fallen in the last few hours or days before our
      arrival. Since all of the bodies were in various stages of
      decomposition, the stench of death was overpowering. The men of
      the 45th Infantry Division were hardened combat veterans. We had
      been in combat almost two years at that point. While we were
      accustomed to death, we were not able to comprehend the type of
      death that we encountered at Dachau.

        Many of the prisoners were still alive, but many were dying as
      we arrived and continued to die at the rate of over a hundred a
      day for about two weeks after our arrival. There were over six
      hundred troops from the 45th Infantry Division who were in
      Dachau on the day of liberation, along with some troops from the
      42nd Infantry Division. During the month of April, 1945, several
      hundred other slave labor and death camps were liberated by
      American, British and Russian soldiers.

        Most certainly, there were well over a hundred thousand Allied
      soldiers who were eyewitnesses to the unspeakable horrors of the
      Holocaust, along with a considerable number of Holocaust
      survivors. To those sick people in our society who say that it
      never happened, I say: Tell us who were there that it never
      happened, instead of trying to disseminate your bigotry and
      hatred by total revision of the Holocaust history. Your efforts
      will never prevail. This remarkable United States Holocaust
      Memorial Museum in which we are all assembled today will always
      stand as a living monument to remind us forever that caring men
      and women must always actively resist those forces of evil which
      practice intolerance, bigotry, hatred and slavery.

      Felix L. Sparks
      Brigadier General, AUS (ret)
