Newsgroups: alt.revisionism,soc.history Subject: Holocaust Almanac - Berg's CO Generators: Another Lie Summary: Report written in 1941 makes it clear that Friedrich Berg's insistence that CO generators were readily available to the Nazis, and that they would have been utilized instead of diesel engines at the Operation Reinhard camps, is utter nonsense. Reply-To: firstname.lastname@example.org Followup-To: alt.revisionism Organization: The Old Frog's Almanac, Vancouver Island, CANADA Keywords: Lines: 94 Archive/File: people/b/berg.friedrich gas-generators-available Last-Modified: 1994/07/20 On July 11, 1994, during a continuing discussion (if that is the word for it) related to the toxidity of diesel exhaust, Friedrich Berg offered the following tidbit: As an alternative which they were required, by law, to know was extremely deadly, the Germans had producer gas generators--18% to 35% CO--on hundreds of thousands of trucks. Those generators were extremely dangerous--everyone had to know that because gas leaks were not only toxic but also highly explosive! When the engines were shutoff, the generators would keep on generating until the internal fire could be extinguished. Can anyone really believe the Germans would have used Diesel exhaust as a source of CO, when they had 18% to 35% CO? These were essentially the same people who built the first jet and rocket-propelled fighter airplanes, the first ballistic missiles, who also invented the gasoline engine, Diesel engine and even the automobile. I can't really believe that Mullins can be that stupid--but, then again, perhaps he is? (Berg, Diesel A,B,C's) Writing in 1956, Leon Poliakov offers the following information about the Polish extermination camps - of particular interest is the material from Wetzel, which directly contradicts Mr. Berg. (I would like to thank Mr. Berg, by the way, for citing Leon Poliakov during his discourse on the engines used at the Reinhard extermination camps. Clearly Mr. Berg considers Poliakov a reliable source, as indeed he seems to be, and had he not mentioned this work, I would not have run across the Wetzel report. During the next few months, thanks to Mr. Berg, I will be offering a substantial number of citations from Poliakov's "Harvest of Hate.") "Fragmentary information gives us a glimpse into the part played by the euthanasia technicians in the extermination of the Polish Jews. But many things still remain obscure. In general, our knowledge of the history of the Polish camps is incomplete. It seems certain, however, that according to the original RSHA plan, the Jews of Europe were to be exterminated, at least in part, in the occupied territories of the USSR, that 'Reichskommissariat Ostland' to which the first convoys of German Jews were sent at the end of 1941. A few letters that passed between the 'Reichskommissariat' administration in Riga and the 'Ministry for the Occupied Regions of the East' in Berlin give us some exact information on the matter. We learn from them that after preliminary contacts between Eichmann and the high officials of this Ministry, the cooperation of the euthanasia experts was solicited for the establishment on the spot of the necessary installations. A report by Wetzel, whose specialty was 'demographic planning' in the East, dated October 25, 1941, pointed out that 'Oberdienstleiter Brack, of the Fu"hrer's Chancellery, has agreed to help us build the necessary buildings and gas machines.' The machines in question are not at present available in Germany in sufficient quantity and must be specially built. Brack thiks that their manufacture in Germany itself would create more difficulties than if they were made locally. For this reason he prefers to send his men directly to Riga, particularly his chemist, Kallmeyer, who will take care of what is needed. I should like to point out that SS Major Eichmann, a specialist in Jewish questions in the RSHA, agrees with this procedure.<19>" (Poliakov, 191) "The machines in question are not at present available in Germany..." Perhaps Mr. Berg would like to explain this discrepancy between his peculiar version of history and the documented reality... <19> Report sent by Wetzel to the Reich Commissioner for "Ostland" on "The Solution of the Jewish Question," Berlin, October 25, 1941.
