Dear Mr. Rennie, I am certainly NOT trying to imply that a "recollection" has no validity, simply that the so-called Hoess "Confession" is not a Nazi- wartime. It was written, if the Translator's Note by Constantine FotzGibbon is to be believed at the beginning of--Commandant of Auschwitz:The Autobiography of Rudolf Hoess--Popular Library, NY, 1951, pages 5-7, in "January and Februaru of 1947, that is to say, after the preliminary inquiries had been completed, but before he faced trial." Recollections do have validity, but when they are the obvious result of torture--sane people do tend to reject them. An old axiom of police work going back at least as far as the middle ages and witchcraft trials is the following: If you have no evidence, try to get a confession. To get a written statement like Hoess's under the circumstances was rather easy. Any good communist interrogator--Russian communist or Polish would have certainly qualified--would have known how to do it easily enough. If his SS personnel records were available as they probably were, it was even easier. "Sit down Herr Hoess and write your entire life-story--we have time, and tell us everything." Hoess writes for a few days and then submits his text. The interrogator then tells Hoess: "That was good but you did not mention anything about all those people you murdered--you must add that and describe the process in detail." Hoess protests but is persuaded to cooperate. He writes a new text, which is resubmitted and then rejected because this or that is missing. After numerous rewrites, a satisfactory text is finally produced--which means it says what the interrogator wants the defendant to say, personal info is window-dressing--and, it is in the defendant's own handwriting with all kinds of personal details: therefore, to the idiots who cannot think beyond the obvious--It Must Be A Genuine, Voluntary Confession. For all those people, who cannot believe Hoess was under "duress", we have some slightly used bridges around here that can be purchased for a very good price. Holocaust is a HOAX. Except for some rather short and vague sections pertaining to mass murder, the vast bulk of the Hoess confession is totally irrelevant to the Holocaust charges--except for convincing the naive that those short and vague sections have some credibility. Auschwitz was a nice place to spend the war--compared to many of the alternatives. FPBERG
