    {sigh} Some days I wonder if there is a screen a denier basic training
    to make sure that no one there has passed a course in logic.

    If the entry by Dr. Frank is authentic, then why would that entry
    invalidate either gas chambers or evacuations to the East?

    Isn't it possible that there were different policies at different
    times?  Isn't it possible that there were different policies at the
    same time for different sub-groups of the population?

    Isn't it possible that Dr. Frank (rather than summarizing all
    comprehensive policy with this diary note) was merely commenting to
    himself on a new policy established that day?

One, if the victims were locked in an air tight room; they could not

they would not make an unusual order.

This was one of my ideas, I have a few others, but I feel it would be
worthless to post them since most people have failed to explain why the
removal would be necessary for the extermination of people.  None of
the historians that were quoted on that thread gave a reason, and none
of the posters had given a valid reason.

This may come as a surprise, but the SS was located throughout Europe.
The five ton order referred to in Professor Hilberg's book did not
specify a destination for Auschwitz.  On page 570 of his original
version,  the Central Sanitation Depot of the Armed SS had received
50 tons of Zyklon B in 1943.  Twelve tons were distributed to
Auschwitz.  There were other grades of Zyklon, so I do not know if
this figure accidently contains the other grades.  The only two other
camps I have heard that used Zyklon B for the Extermination of people
were Majdanek and Neugamme.  I doubt if the remaining thirty eight tons
were sent to these two camps (maybe some, but not all).

This is the quote from your article that I had responded to.  I did

No not really, but I do find that there are a lot of missing pieces
in the puzzle of World War II.  For example, I find very few references
to the last commandant of Auschwitz Richard Bdr (or Baer).  According
to a New York Times article on December 21, 1960 he was arrested on
December 20, and  the article claimed he was the last commandant of
Auschwitz.  He was charged on May 3, 1963 and he died on June 18,
1963.  According to some Revisionists, he had made claims that the
gas chambers were a myth.  I cannot find any English (non-revisionist)
sources for this statement, but I find very few references to this
man in non-Revisionist books.  Some Revisionists claim he was murdered
or infer  that he was murdered.  That may be a rumor.  Professor
Hilberg does not claim (in the original version) that he was the
commandant of this camp, but of Auschwitz I.  He claims that Rudolf
Hvss returned on May 1944, but does not give a departure date.  In
the second version, he claims Hvss came back May 1944 and left again
on June 1944 with Richard Bdr taking control of the camp afterwards.
Now since this man was in German custody for two and a half years,
and if he was commandant of the entire Auschwitz complex since May
1944, I can only guess that the German police have interrogated him
not once but several times.  So far, I have heard nothing of this
man on this usenet or very little in standard history books on the
Final Solution.

The entry by Dr. Frank (the quote were he said: "the directive for
the annihilation of the Jews")  was not made on on August 24, 1942,
but on December 9, 1942.  On page 581 Volume XXIX of the blue series,
it does say that.  The English translation of the red series Volume
IV page 902 does not give a date, but there are asterisks separating
the the paragraph of December 9, 1942 and the selected paragraphs of
August 24, 1942.  Also, at the end of the August 24 entries it says:
"End of the meeting:1640 hrs."
 
 
 
On the article I had responded  to you (but did not quote this
portion) it was written:
 
 
 
#To top things off, Mr. Roberts finishes his article by responding to
#a particularly brutal section of Frank's diary.  The diary reads:
 
#   It is clear that the working program is made difficult when in the
#   middle of the program, during the war, the order for complete
#   *annihilation* of the Jews is given.  The responsibility for this
#   cannot be placed upon the government of the General Government.
#   The directive for the *annihilation* of the Jews comes from higher
#   quarters.
 
#Mr. Roberts responds:
 
#   *Annihilation*  I guess without seeing the document that the word is
#   ausrottung [root out/uproot.]
 
#Well, first of all, Mr. Roberts, "Ausrottung" does not mean "uproot,"
#though the two words are cognate.  It means to destroy a living thing,
#to kill it.  I can suggest a dozen dictionaries which will verify this
#(and I'm not exaggerating -- probably more than a dozen).
#
#But, second of all, the German word is not "ausrotten," it's
#"vernichten."  Unluckily for you, Mr. Roberts, I just happen to have
#visited the library last night and checked out that exact volume of the
#Blue Series.  Volume 29, p. 582:
 
#   Es ist klar, dass der Arbeitsprozess erschwert wird, wenn mitten in
#   dieses Arbeitsprogramm des Krieges der Befehl kommt, alle Juden
#   sind der Vernichtung anheim zu stellen.  Die Verantwortung hierfuer
#            ^^^^^^^^^^^
#   trifft nicht die Regierung des Generalgouvernements.  Die Weisung
#   der Judenvernichtung kommt von hoeherer Stelle.
#      ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
 
#The German noun "Vernichtung" means "annihilation" -- it's as close a
#translation as any word can be.
 
 
 
Now the "SELECTED QUOTES" I have used does not state that you had
looked at page 581.  Therefore it would be wrong to accuse you of being
dishonest, ignoring vital information, being insane, being idiotic, or
being illogical.  If you had, I still wouldn't say it.

      >In whatever difficulties you observe some place here, in the form of

Please turn to page 580 Volume XXIX,  the German version of this speech
contains ellipsis.  These ellipsis may have been part of the original
document, but I don't believe so since document 2233-PS does not contain
the complete text of Dr. Franks Diary.  Instead it contains extracts of
statements that Dr. Frank (and others) have made during the war years.
What I find interesting is that Hans Frank has made a direct reference
to killing people (Hungertod) via starvation (a specific weapon), and
he had given a specific number.  I find it strange that he should be
so blunt about killing people via starvation, but be vague with
regarding anti-Jewish measures.  Also if one read various books on the
Final Solution, it is claimed that many people were being killed through
gas chambers during that time of year.  On page 112 of Martin Gilbert's
The Macmillan Atlas Of The Holocaust, it is claimed that 250,000 Jews
were killed in the various camps in the first half of August (not all
were from the General Government).  Now I don't have evidence that Hans
Frank was aware of the details of the deportations, but I think he would
have been interested on this subject.  According to Mr. Neumann's speech
(which is part of the August 24, 1942 diary):
 
 
 
"Proposed resettlement projects, such as are planned according to reports
>from  the Department Leaders of Lemberg and Lublin, must in my opinion be
postponed, for the sake of a frictionless procurement and effecting of
the harvest for the coming year."  (VOLUME IV page 898  red series)
 
 
 
This statement does not refer to Jews specifically, and I do not believe
it is referring to them indirectly,  since Germans were being resettled
in Western Poland which was incorporated into the German Reich, and
Poles were resettled into the General Government from Western Poland,
plus Poles were shipped to Germany as laborers.  This statement could
mean anything.
 
 
 
I have read the partial (yes it does say partial) English translation
of Hans Frank's diary for that particular day.  Dr. Frank was commenting
on the critical food situation occurring that year.  Hans Frank at that
time took an us or them policy.  It may sound ugly, but that's war for
you (for your information the final solution was an event during World
War II, not the other way around).  While the Soviets retreated in
1941, they had used scorched earth policy as a tactic.  They burned
fields, killed livestock, etc. (Didn't the Soviets realize this may
affect the civilian population in those areas?  YES they did since their
ultimate goal was victory)  How this affected  Europe in 1942 is unknown
since so much of the history of WWII is biased.  I believe the weather
did not prove to be favorable to agriculture for that year (1942) as
well.  Since his diary entries are incomplete (based on 2233-PS), I
cannot base my conclusions on inaccurate evidence.  If he did say those
words, it could have been hyperbole.  There were massive deaths due
to starvation in the Warsaw Ghetto (based on Mr. Gilbert's atlas) prior
to this speech.  If he had made this speech in August 1941 or 1940,
then there may  have been some truth to these words since there seemed
to be an enormous death rate in the ghettos prior to his speech.  What
I find amazing is Dr. Frank didn't mention this in his presentation.
If Europe had an enormous amount of foodstuffs to distribute, maybe
the National Socialists would have distributed it properly, but that
is all hypothetical.  Since this speech was made in August of 1942,
it does not match the events (deportations) as presented by post-war
historians.
 
 
 
Also another detail you had forgotten to include, what date was this
policy going to take effect.  According to Mr. Neuengamme (YOU HAD
QUOTED HIM ON YOUR ORIGINAL ARTICLE BUT YOU FORGOT TO MENTION THAT
THOSE WERE HIS WORDS NOT DR. FRANK'S) page 896 Volume IV red series,
he did not give a specific timetable.  Below that quote he gave a time
table for non-German normal consumers.   On page 901 Volume IV, it is
written: "The Governor General then declared that it was left to a
coming conference of the authoritative factors of the government of
the General Government to take measures against the results of the
present decision.  The results would, to be sure, first take effect
at the beginning of next year, since the old rations were valid until
the end of this year."  I don't believe you had used this last quote
in YOUR ORIGINAL ARTICLE.  You had forgotten to include the third
paragraph of page 895 Volume IV in YOUR ORIGINAL ARTICLE.  If this
statement, applied to Jews as well, then this would invalidate the
deportations, since according to Martin Gilbert, the National Socialists
exterminated 250,000 Jews in the first half of August of 1942 (this figure
does contain people outside of the General Government).  They could
possibly kill and dispose of one million people in just two months now
couldn't they.

I have already explained this; this was not part of the August conference.

So is the lack of food possible, and what the food they had was
allocated to the military first, civilians second, and the
prisoners last.

Many of these prisoners came from Auschwitz.  If the killing machine
was so efficient they could have kept one chamber open by January of
1945 and kill off the prisoners in ten days.  Also, who gave the order
to Commandant Kramer telling him not to destroy the corpses?

I recall a new report of President Clinton's visit to Babi Yar.
The news report claimed that over 100,000 people were shot and
buried there, some people claim that 35,000 people were killed.
I believe two years later the National Socialists had these graves
opened and the bodies destroyed through fire (if you believe the
accounts of certain journalists or historians).  Where the National
Socialists concerned about the water table in the Ukraine?

Of course I am only surmising.  In all the quotations that have
appeared on this thread, no one has explained why it was necessary
to remove the indicator if it was used to kill people.

I had consulted my modest library as well; there are few references
to the use of Zyklon-B from non-revisionist sources.  I have seen
a facsimile of the of the war-time (NI-9912) manual in Jack Ketch's
Made in Russia: The Holocaust pages 368-382 (the English translation
{by Dorothea L. Galewski} and the German), and the post-war facsimile
located in the Leuchter Report pages 135-162.  Both of these manuals
do not use the phrase Zyklon-B, but a general term Zyklon.
 
Document NI-9912, does not seem to have been issued by DEGESCH firm,
but instead by the Health Institution of the Protectorate Bohemia
and Moravia in Prague.  Whether or not this document is an exact
verbatim of the DEGESCH manual or a summary is unclear.  Zyklon is a
brand name for Hydrogen Cyanide, so the fact that it appears on the
document does indicate that the H.I.P.B.M copied most if not all from
the original source.  The English translation does have a section on
the effects on "warm-blooded animals."  It does not specify rodents,
but it does warn on the effects on human beings.  It also states the
birds (I didn't know they had bird cages in the delousing chambers)
and fish (I didn't know they had aquariums in the delousing chambers)
are susceptible to prussic acid.  On part two at the end of this section
that states the addition of irritant does not minimize the poisonous
effects of the acid.  On part seven number 2 and the first sentence
of part nine, it does use the word English word Vermin.  The word in
English can be applied to rodents, but I cannot locate the German word
schddlinge in my dictionary.  Therefore, I do not feel I should contest
the translation.  The post war manual of DEGESCH does  mention rodents
on page 4 (page 139 of the Leuchter Report), but this is a post war
document so I guess that invalidates that.
 
 
 
>Please try again.
 
 
I have a few other ideas as to why this indicator or irritant
would be removed.  They may even support the exterminationist thesis.
I wouldn't mind posting them, but unfortunately no one on this thread
was able to provide a source for the "REASON" that it was removed in
order to help in killing human beings.  All that was written was that
the SS placed an order for Zyklon-B without the indicator, no reason
is given, as well as no destination.  One person claimed that it was
to disguise the smell.  Another person claimed that gas mask filters
may not work.  Both of these ideas, I find unacceptable.  The one
idea that I did put forward may not be the valid reason, but because
of the lack of information available or a direct reason given by
non-revisionist historians, I can only rely on guesses or
conjectures.

Ok, how do your read the following internal Nazi memo from Dr Becker:

  "Apart from that I gave orders that all men should stand as far away
  as possible from van during the gassings, so that their health would
  not be damaged by any escaping gases. I would like to take this
  opportunity to draw your attention to the following: Some of the
  Kommandos are using their own men to unload the vans after the
  gassing. I have made commanders of the Sonderkommandos in question
  aware of the enormous psychological and physical damage this work can
  do to the men, if not immediately then at a later stage."

	Dr August Becker on 16 May 1942 to SS-Obersturmbannfuherer Rauff

In particular, "the enormous psychological ... damage this work can do
to the men..."

So assume that the irritant, which was designed to be so noxious that
even if you had no idea what it was you'd run the other way long
before the levels of cyanide became harmful, were still in the
Zyklon-B. You'd have quite a period of screaming, tortured-sounding
people. Cyanide, in its pure form, is not very recognizeable, just an
almond-smell. And by the time you can smell it you're probably within
a few breaths of losing consciousness and dying.

Also, what about emptying the gas chambers rapidly? They didn't air
them out like one might a ship's hold, overnight etc. Might the
irritant have been too much for others to work around?

Remember, it was *designed* to make you run the other way even in tiny
quantities. That was the point, it didn't rely on your recognizing the
odor of the irritant (unlike, say, mercaptan, the sulfrous odor they
add to home cooking/heating gas which is merely meant to be an
unambiguous indicator you're supposed to recognize), it just made you
want to get away.

I could imagine that being rather inconvenient when, eg, removing and
disposing of the corpses etc. Cyanide would blow away when the room
was aerated, it doesn't particularly cling to clothing etc (tho I'd
use gloves or wash my hands really well, but that's the limit of it,
it doesn't go thru your skin, I've worked with cyanide), but almost
any amount of such a strong irritant would be a processing problem at
every step.

As I said in another note, it was a very strong irritant designed to
make you want to run the other way in even tiny quantites (ie, long
before the cyanide it was protecting you against became a danger.)

I can think of a few reasons why to remove it. But the most compelling
to me is that this irritant was probably a problem in processing the
bodies after they were dead.

Another is that, referring to Dr Becker's warning to
SS-Obersturmbannfuherer Rauff about the problems with morale in troops
involved in gassings, this made the process a bit "quieter", the
irritant would no doubt prompt screams of anguish (that was its
design, after all) long before poisonous levels of cyanide were
attained (again, that was the irritant's purpose, to make you get the
hell away from the stuff.) I can imagine that becoming a morale
problem among troops who had to supervise etc the extermination
process.

As has been pointed out before, just slitting people's throats
would've been a fairly efficient and very cheap way to kill the
prisoners (consider how a livestock slaughterhouse operates.)

But it does seem the Nazis wanted a more sterile, hands-off method of
killing. I think it's reasonable to surmise that even battle-hardened,
propaganda crazed troops would quickly sicken of, eg, slitting throats
all day.

etc.

Baer was supposed to be tried in the big "Auschwitz Trial" in

claimed they were in Auschwitz II (Birkenau) and he was not

Baer is mentioned in "Nazi Mass Murder" (Yale University Press, 1993)
and in some other books. He was supposed to be tried in the Frankfurt
Auschwitz trial in 1963. Baer claimed that he was not in charge of
Birkenau and therefore is not to blame for the mass gassings that
took place there.

I see, there were gassings but I knew nothing about them. Sounds familiar.
I'll have to recheck Staeglich when I get the chance but I'm fairly certain
he denied them per se.

Exactly what date did the DEGESCH officials remove the entire
indicator.  The sources used by Professor Hilberg were in the
Spring-Summer of 1944.  Neither he nor Mr. Borkin had given an
exact date as to when the production of Zyklon-B without the
indicator began nor why.

Maybe you should look at the errata page in Mr. Pressac's book.
He gives a different opinion.

Well according to Mr. Pressac (page 15 of Auschwitz Technique .  .  .),
he claimed that 95% was used for delousing.  Professor Hilberg (The
Destruction of the European Jews original edition page 570) claims
that most was used for gassing people, and said that the quantities
ordered were not large.  You have two different opinions from the
exterminationist side.  There were forty camps that were part of
Auschwitz [Walter Laqueur, The Terrible Secret page 22 {Although
he use the word branch which could mean just an office, I have
heard through other sources that there were more than three
Auschwitzs.  They may not have had the name of Auschwitz IV etc.,
but they were part of the Auschwitz complex}]  The three most famous
were located near or on swampy land.  This area may have had more
problems with insects and other creatures.

BELOW IS THE THE COMPLETE QUOTE:

I did use the phrase Auschwitz complex at least once, but you are
correct in that I should be more specific in every instance.  So
when I used the words Auschwitz camp, I did mean the entire Auschwitz
series of camps.  Some people when they are talking about Auschwitz
II (Birkenau), call it Auschwitz, so there can be some confusion
when one isn't specific.  Therefore I apologize.  If Richard Baer
was the last commandant of the Auschwitz complex (depending on one's
sources) he may have left a paper trail.  I am quite sure something
revealing is located in there.  Why wasn't anything turned over by
the Soviet?  Are they still typing up documents?  Since he was
captured by the West Germans, he must have been interrogated.
I have not seen  any references to any interrogations in most
history books.

It's about time!  The other references did not give a reason (this
includes Mr. Borkin); this reference at least gave a plausible reason.
Plus I have been doing my "homework."  With the limited amount of
references to this particular topic, it would be difficult to come
to some firm conclusions.  I will say that participating in this
particular thread has broadened and altered some of my opinions,
but the main gist of my beliefs has not changed.  The request for
the absence of the indicator was not influenced by the alleged
extermination of people.

Don't worry there is no need to type in its entirety.
 
One, according to a memorandum by Rudolf Hoess, the Zyklon contained
less of an odor ingredient.  This memorandum is dated August 12, 1942.
 
Two, the manual NI-9912 does not call the irritant a tear inducing
irritant.  It just says irritant.  The memo by Rudolf Hoess and the
request by Murgowski's representative does not mention any tear
inducing irritant, but a odor indicator.  Now the manual may not be
accurate in their descriptive terms, but maybe the individuals
who were using it were familiar with the features of the product.
 
Three, according to Mr. Pressac (page titled errata, Auschwitz
Technique . . .) the percentage of the indicator was reduced,
because of a shortage in the supply.
 
 
Four, the alleged conversation between Gerstein and Dr. Peters took
place in June 1943.
 
 
 
Although Mr. Pressac did not provide footnotes for his statements,
his seems  the most probable.  The alleged memorandum by Hoess was
distributed ten months prior to the alleged conversation between
Gerstein and Dr. Peters.  If this conversation is authentic, why
didn't either of these gentlemen bring up the fact that the irritant
was being phased out.

Small wonder - the man is a denier, it's his business. I may confirm here,
that this incredible judge, W.Staeglich, indeed denied the mass-gassings
at Auschwitz 'per se'. That is, Staeglich doesn't bother to consider
the evidence for the mass-murders - as the results of his investigations
were fixed 'per se'. What do you expect from a denier?

>Ok, how do your read the following internal Nazi memo from Dr Becker:
 
 
 
 
 
 
Simple, the memorandum that you had cited talks about gas vans.
These alleged gas vans used their engines to exterminate people.
Now if there were other alleged vans that used Zyklon, please
provide better sources.
 
 
This quote is very strange by Dr. Becker:
 
.  .  .  "Besides that I ordered that during  application of gas all
the men were to be kept as far away from the vans as possible, so they
should not suffer damage to their health by the gas which eventually
would escape.  I should like to take this opportunity to bring the
following to your attention: several commands have had the unloading
after the application of gas done by their own men.  I brought to the
attention of the commanders of those S.K. concerned the immense
psychological injuries and damages to their health which that work
can have for those men, even if not immediately, at least later on.
The men complained to me about head-aches which appeared after each
unloading.  Nevertheless they don't want to change the orders, because
they are afraid prisoners called for that work, could use an opportune
moment to flee.  To protect the men from these damages, I request
orders be issued accordingly."  . .  .
 
Document 501-PS; Volume III (I could be wrong) , page 419 red series
 
I though they issued gas masks in the German military.  If at that
stage of the war they had decided to discontinue (since the threat
of gas warfare was minimized), then I could understand not issuing
every soldier a gas mask.  The Germans should have had some gas masks
available for this effort.  I find it strange that Dr.  Becker did not
mention the use of gas masks either in the past, present,  or future
tense.  If the vehicle was moving, then the exhausts would have been
no different from any other moving vehicle at that time (sure each
vehicle emits different amounts of pollution, I doubt if it would have
been that dangerous to drive behind this vehicle if they were driving
several scores of yards away {in a military manner}).  If these alleged
activities were being  handled in the countryside, the amount of
pollutants from the vehicle would have been minimal compared to life in
a city.   Once the unloading would be carried out and if Dr. Becker
was concerned about his men getting headaches, all that was needed was
for the doors to be opened and allow a few minutes for the vans to be
ventilated, and of course have his men wear gas masks.

Even if the Zyklon-B did not have any type of scent, there would still
be panic in the gas chamber.  The first person to collapse would start
a commotion.

Well one could say that the removal of the indicator was necessary
to expedite the ventilation of the barracks, delousing chambers, etc.

Where does it state in the literature of that time that it was a tear
inducing irritant or even a skin irritant?  The Hoess memorandum refers
to an odor ingredient or something of that nature.  Professor Hilberg
refers to it as an odor indicator based on a letter.

Well because of the lack of facts presented by Exterminationist
historians one has to rely on their imaginations or conjectures.
You had brought up an interesting point about airing out the irritant
(if it was that strong).

According to page 49 Volume I of the blue series, it was claimed by the
Soviets that 100,000 people were killed their.  On page 458 Volume VII,
the 100,000 figure was used as well as the 52,000 figure (this was based
on Molotov's report of 1942 USSR-51)
 
I cannot find USSR-51 nor USSR-101 in Volume XXXIX of the blue series.
On page 550 of Volume VII of the blue series and on page 173 of Volume
XXIV, it is claimed that 101 is a photograph not a document.  Do you
know what volume USSR-101 is located in and do you have the correct
document number?

Our anonymous critic should try sniffing 2-Bromo-1-phenylethanone, for
example, and report back on the condition of his eyes...

Most 'irritants',  in case he is not aware, are also strong lachrymators.
