Organization: The World, Public Access Internet, Brookline, MA Date: Mon, 9 Sep 1996 10:18:50 GMT Lines: 45 Seems we can document another big lie from our "revisionist scholars". A few days ago, Jean-Francois Beaulieu claimed that Richard Baer, the last commandant of Auschwitz I, denied the murder by gas "in his camp": Jean-Francois Beaulieu Subject: Re: No criminal evidende in the Wannsee protocol Date: Thu Sep 05 22:38:06 EDT 1996 # No torture? Let just say that it didn't transpire if it # happened. Poor Bauer [Baer], he chose to deny the gas chambers # in his camp and died in his early fifties...coincidence? This is not the first time I heard this claim; I kept asking our "revisionists" for a source, but never got one. Beaulieu did post a hodge-podge of meaningless speculations, which amounted to "I think that what Baer's wife said in some private conversation may have meant that he suspected the gassings never took place". Usually, the flat claim is made that Baer denied any murder by gas. This is a "revisionist" lie. In "Nazi Mass Murder", Yale Uni. Press, 1993, on page 142, a statement of Baer from Dec. 22, 1960, is quoted, with the full source: "I commanded only Camp I at Auschwitz. I had nothing to do with the camps where the gassings took place. I had no influence over them. It was in Camp II, at Birkenau, that the gassings took place. That camp was not under my authority". Remember, Baer arrived at Camp I only at 1944; by that time, there was indeed no gassing in Krema I in that camp - that took place only in 1941-2, till the much bigger gas chambers in Birkenau were built. Since Baer was ill, and died during his trial, the "revisionists" are trying to suggest he was "murdered" because he "denied the gassing myth". He obviously did not. So, we have another outright lie from our "revisionist scholars". Interestingly enough, Beaulieu indicated that he based his claim on Butz's book. What does that make Butz? -Danny Keren.
