There are numerous omissions and half-truths in this posting, but I'll 
only point out a couple of the most egregious.

Mr. Beaulieu writes:

>But often, messages were simply transmitted with the liberation of >inmates (Laqueur, 'The Terrible Secret', page 169 and Garlinsi [sic], >'Fighting Auschwitz', pages 54-5 & 112).

Cf. Josef Garlinski in _Fighting Auschwitz_ (Fawcett Publications, 
1975), p. 80: 'In this preliminary period, when the underground was 
taking its first steps almost in the dark, sending reports via 
released prisoners was found to be the most practical method.  
Releases were very rare, but they did happen from time to time.  It 
all depended on whether the released man was already a member of the 
secret camp organization.  The risk of sending anything by someone who 
was not completely trustworthy was unacceptable for the underground 
and for Warsaw, as both sides would have had to reveal their secret 
contact.'

Mr. Beaulieu also writes:
>Communications between Poland and London were relatively easy for the >Resistance.

He neglects to note what Garlinski states about the time lag involved 
in such communications.  Garlinski says about the first report from 
Auschwitz: 'Pilecki's first report, transmitted to Warsaw orally in 
November 1940 by means of a released prisoner, was immediately made 
use of.  The contents were included in the secret mail, sent by 
courier from the Commandant of the ZWZ, which arrived in London via 
Stockholm in March 1941.'  (Garlinski, p. 79).

Mr. Beaulieu also writes:
>What is astonishing here is that over 2 years and a half, the >systematic murder of hundreds of thousands of jews seems to be >ignored while the polish resistance is suppose to be aware of a >single gasing of russian pows at a time. [deletion]  Before the mid >1944, the atrocities were generally not concerning Auschwitz and when >it was th case, the mass gasing of jews was not mention.

Mr. Beaulieu tends to confuse what is _reported_ with what is 
_publicized_.  He fails to note that the first report on Auschwitz 
that provided details of the gassings there was a two-part report 
written on 10 and 12 August 1943.  This, the first detailed report to 
reach the West, was received by the Office of Strategic Services in 
London in April 1944.  It was based on information gathered by the 
Polish underground in Auschwitz, and contained information about the 
number of inmates at Auschwitz; the number of Jews gassed up to 
September 1942; the number of Romany who had been gassed; and the 
numbers of Jews arriving from various countries between September 1942 
and June 1943.  The report added that of these, only two percent were 
still alive.  The report also contained descriptions of the gassing 
procedure and of the crematoria as well as of the medical 
experimentation being conducted on inmates.   Also included was 
information about the conditions in the camp and names of some key 
figures in the Nazi staff.

The Polish source had requested that the information in the report be 
given publicity; the OSS did not do this.

For more details, see Raul Hilberg, _The Destruction of the European 
Jews_ (abridged edition, NY, 1985), pp. 321-22; see also David S. 
Wyman, _The Abandonment of the Jews_ (NY, 1984), p. 314.  The report 
itself, Wyman notes, is held by the National Archives: Description of 
Conc Camp at Oswiecim, 8/43, u/c Belin to Langer, 4/10/44, RG 226, R & 
A 66059.

>From  Jozef Garlinski, _Fighting Auschwitz_ (Fawcett, 1975), pp. 
133-34:

	'There, in the cellar [of Block No. 20], underground electricians set 
up a transmitting station.  It was an excellent place, for typhus was 
rife in the camp and the SS-men were very unwilling to enter the 
infected area: Block No. 20 was specially set aside for infectious 
ilness.  Through contacts, established earlier for sending reports and 
secret correspondence, the Silesia District of the Home Army was 
informed of the wavelengths on which they would broadcast.  Reception 
was organized as near as possible to the camp.  For seven months, 
Stössel tranmitted from the secret radio-station.  Transmissions were 
infrequent, at various times; the bulletins concerned new transports, 
the death rate in the camp and general living conditions.  
Unfortunately no details concerning reception have been preserved; 
none of the people near the camp, who organized the monitoring of the 
secret station and forwarded the news, survived the war.
	'The SS-men soon got to know that the transmitter was working and 
looked for it furiously.  They pulled up floors in the workshops and 
stores, tapped the walls, questioned informers.  It was a painful time 
for the whole SS garrison, as it undermined their prestige and made 
fools of them in the eyes of the prisoners.  The search for the 
transmitter was carried on outside the camp as well, in areas 
adjoining it.  The SS-men never found it, but in the autumn of 1942 it 
was thought necessary to dismantle the set and stop transmitting.  Too 
many prisoners knew about it and not all would be able to keep silent.
	'Some informants state that the organization had a second crystal set 
at this time, but Pilecki's report does not confirm this.'

Two notes.  First, the content of the transmissions is not 
discoverable.  It is nonsense, then, to assert that the transmissions 
did not contain information about gassings.  No one knows either way.

Second, the transmitter was in operation for seven months, ending in 
autumn 1942.  The mass extermination of the Jews in Auschwitz began in 
the summer of 1942; the crematoria at Birkenau, however, were not 
completed until 1943.  See Nora Levin, _The Holocaust_ (Schocken, 
1973), pp. 315-16; Raul Hilbert, _The Destruction of the European 
Jews_ (abridged edition, Holmes & Meier, 1985), p. 233.

The widespread typhus, t.b., and dysentery were primarily due to malnutrition
and appalling living conditions.  These were direct results of Nazi policies.

To which cultures does your phrase 'such cultures' refer?  The 
convention of noncombatant immunity is not a recent development in 
Western thought.

Mr. Giwer: In response to my request for sources re: your assertions 
about Terezin, you replied, 'Read the frigging NG for further 
details.'  I suggest you heed your own advice; were you to do so, 
you'd realize that this is indeed a lie.

Sufficient for what?  See below.

You forget an essential part,

According to Garlinski - who, let it be noted, is a choice of your own 
choosing, transmissions _ended_ in the autumn of 1942 (Garlinski, 
_Fighting Auschwitz_, p. 133).  Also, see my posting in response to 
that of Mr. Curtis re: what is or is not known about the content of 
the transmissions.  Your point?

Again, Mr. Beaulieu, you fail to make a crucial distinction.  Yes, 
someone released from Auschwitz-Birkenau may well have told others of 
what they had seen there (though let it be noted that at least some of  
the people who were released report having had to sign non-disclosure 
statements); such personal communications, however, must be 
distinguished from communications which would have been relayed by 
members of the Polish resistance.  For the Allies to have received 
information, a communications link - i.e. a contact in the Polish 
resistance - was necessary.  You were, after all, not writing about 
what was known _in Poland_.

Not necessarily, perhaps - I don't have information about the routing 
procedures for such communications; nor, I must add, have you supplied 
any such referenced information.  Nevertheless, you just wrote that '4  
months for a letter wasn't and [sic] exception.'  Your words.

This again must be emphasized.  The murder of the Jews by gas at 
Auschwitz _was_ reported by the Polish resistance in 1943, although 
logistics meant that the report was not received until 1944; the 
Auschwitz-Birkenau information was not, however, publicized in the 
West until the Vrba-Wetzler report.

Why 'impossible'?  Especially in light of the fact that you've already 
stated '4 months for a letter wasn't and [sic] exception'.  Please 
give references re: the communications network between the underground 
and London.

[snip]

'[A] year and a half or close to it' _for what_?  Again, distinctions 
must be made between a) reports being compiled in Poland; b) reports 
being received by the Allies; and c) newspapers publicizing the 
information.

Mr. Giwer: Again, you miss the point of my post. And by the way, I am 
well acquainted with Deja News, and thus know perfectly well that the 
references re: Terezin were not posted - nor have they been since my 
request.

Oh dear, oh dear. In two weeks time, I'm supposed to teach an 
undergraduate course on the Second World War - and now I realise that 
I can't be sure it really happened!  (You are, of course, right: by 
Mr. Giwer's criteria, there is no proof.)  Wait till I tell my head of 
department!

And I'm also supposed to teach a course on the Enlightenment.  But how 
do I know that Montesquieu ever existed, let alone wrote _The Spirit 
of the Laws_?  I don't have any physical evidence, after all.

I guess my only hope is that that the students lack Mr. Giwer's 
acumen.

(BTW, is there a typographical sign for sarcasm?)

'Resettlement in the East' was the phrase: but how does this professed 
policy equate, prima facie, the 'Final Solution' (i.e. genocide)?  
Deportation is not the same as mass murder.

Why are we to 'assume' this, Mr. Moran?  Testimony consistently states 
that those arriving at Auschwitz were first divided by sex and then 
selected for labour or the gas.

The header, as you must know, reads, 'Dedicated to the nearly twelve 
million victims ruthlessly destroyed by Adolf Hitler and his Nazi 
regime'.  As I'd think you also must know, 'victim' is not the same as 
'camp inmate'.  Much of the killing occurred outside of the camps.

You _are_ being disingenous, aren't you?

Nobody?  From the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum website's 
'Five Questions About the Holocaust' 
(http://www.ushmm.org/misc-bin/add_goback/education/5quest.html):

'1. What was the Holocaust?

'The Holocaust was the state-sponsored, systematic persecution and 
annihilation of European Jewry
by the Nazi Germany and its collaborators between 1933 and 1945. In 
1933 approximately nine
million Jews lived in the 21 countries of Europe that would be occ 
upied by Germany during World
War II. By 1945 two out of every three European Jews had been killed. 
Jews were the primary
victims -- six million were murdered; Roma (Gypsies), the handicapped 
and Poles were also
targeted for destruction or decimation for racial, ethnic or national 
reasons. Millions more,
including Soviet prisoners of war, political dissidents, homosexuals 
and Jehovah's Witnesses
suffered grievous oppression and death under Nazi tyranny.

[...]

'3. Why did the Nazis want to kill large numbers of innocent people?

'The Nazis believed that Germans were "racially superior" and that 
there was a struggle for survival
between them and "inferior races." Jews, Roma (Gypsies) and the 
handicapped were seen as a
serious biological threat to the purity of the "German (Aryan) Race" 
and therefore had to be
"exterminated." The Nazis blamed the Jews for Germany's defeat in 
World War I, for its economic
problems and for the spread of Communist parties throughout Europe. 
Slavic peoples (Poles,
Russians and others) were also consi dered "inferior" and destined to 
serve as slave labor for their
German masters. Communists, Socialists, Jehovah's Witnesses, 
homosexuals and Free Masons
were persecuted, imprisoned and often killed on political and 
behavioral (rather than racial) grounds
. Sometimes the distinction was not very clear. Millions of Soviet 
Prisoners of War perished from
starvation, disease and forced labor or were killed for racial 
political reasons.'

To state what should be obvious: the selection process on the ramp was 
a _process_.  Men and women were separated from each other; small 
children, their mothers, and the infirm were separated from the 
others; the adult men and adult women were then inspected cursorily 
and directed either to join the group destined for labour or that 
which would be sent to the gas.  Survivors with whom I've spoken 
invariably testify to the rapidity of this sorting process; any 
photograph, however, can obviously show only one stage.  'Selection', 
with reference to new arrivals, denotes the process as a whole.

I've just checked the catalogue for the Seattle Public Library system, 
which lists several copies of this book.  I know it is readily 
available in university library systems both in America and in the UK.  
I cannot know what the strengths or shortcomings of the Beverly Hills 
Library's collections may be; I would remind you, however, of 
interlibrary loan services.


>And then it is testimony. 

You claimed that 'Holocaust facts...assert the whole operation [i.e. 
the selections on the ramp] was concealed from the rest of the camp.'  
I provided a reference to a discussion of prisoners' responses to 
seeing the arrival of new transports.  You seemed dissatisfied with 
what the photos showed: that new arrivals could be seen from some 
parts of the camp.  Testimony indicates that there is nothing 
problematic in acknowledging that this was in fact the case.  As you 
have not furnished any evidence that 'Holocaust facts' (whatever you 
mean by that) do assert what you claim they assert (and here I am 
echoing your own grammatical construction: _facts_, of course, cannot 
themselves assert anything), I see nothing problematic in my citation.

To the extent that I can make sense of this sentence, I would simply 
reply that I have answered a number of your points.  The books I have 
in my office here do not contain plans of the Auschwitz-Birkenau 
complex, and so I cannot address your contentions re: its layout.  
Such plans are, of course, readily available.

Mr. Giwer:

>From  the SWC website (URL of text quoted: 
http://www.wiesenthal.com/resource/gloss.htm):

'CONCENTRATION CAMPS 
       Immediately upon their assumption of power on January 30, 1933, 
the Nazis established
       concentration camps for the imprisonment of all "enemies" of 
their regime: actual and
       potential political opponents (e.g. communists, socialists, 
monarchists), Jehovah's
       Witnesses, gypsies, homosexuals, and other "asocials." 
Beginning in 1938, Jews were
       targeted for internment solely because they were Jews. Before 
then, only Jews who fit one
       of the earlier categories were interned in camps. The first 
three concentration camps
       established were Dachau (near Munich), Buchenwald (near Weimar) 
and Sachsenhausen
       (near Berlin).'


Please note the final sentence.

You will say, of course, that this is not the SWC URL you posted. But 
you posted no such URL in support of your assertions.

You are lying.  But this is nothing new:

Inmates of Auschwitz-Birkenau knew about the gassings.  There are no 
such claims.

Read some books.

Please note that the writer whose letter is quoted was a member of the 
Free French Forces, and was presumably deported as such.  He was not 
victimized on account of being French.  To then state, as Mr. Giwer 
subsequently does, 'Where are the French?' is a non sequitur.

Moreover, 'the French' rightly includes those Jews of French 
citizenship.

What axe?

I have already quoted material from the USHMM.  To this I'll add 
material from the Simon Wiesenthal Center's '36 Questions About the 
Holocaust' (URL: http://www.wiesenthal.com/resource/36quest1.htm#3):

'3. How many non-Jewish civilians were murdered during World War II? 

       Answer: While it is impossible to ascertain the exact number, 
the recognized figure is
       approximately 5,000,000. Among the groups which the Nazis and 
their collaborators
       murdered and persecuted were: Gypsies, Serbs, Polish 
intelligentsia, resistance fighters
       from all the nations, German opponents of Nazism, homosexuals, 
Jehovah's Witnesses,
       habitual criminals, and the "anti-social," e.g. beggars, 
vagrants, and hawkers.'



And I needn't remind you of Nizkor's epigraph:

'Dedicated to the nearly twelve million victims 
        ruthlessly destroyed by Adolf Hitler and his Nazi regime'

>Where are the French?

See above.

References off-line - i.e. in libraries - are not hard to find, as 
you'd know if you made use of those institutions.

One of the most renowned (and most cited) writers of Holocaust 
testimony/literature is Charlotte Delbo, excerpts from whose trilogy 
are featured in most major anthologies of Holocaust writing.  Delbo 
was French; Delbo was not Jewish.  She is, I repeat, well known to all 
who are familiar  with the field.  Her work is, to reiterate, hardly 
considered a 'footnote', as you should know.

Put _what_ behind them, Mr. Giwer?  Are you backpedalling again?

And even if s/he's not Jewish, s/he is obviously a lackey of the Jews, 
so it still wouldn't count.

I wonder if even witnessing the gassings himself would be sufficient?  
Given Moran's propensity for referring to himself in the third person, 
he'd likely find even his own testimony suspect.
