Flashback 2002: The Battleship Auschwitz is Still Sinking After All !

- The Battleship Auschwitz is Still Sinking After All !
by David Irving, http://www.fpp.co.uk/textindex.html, August 13-14, 2002
“The Battleship Auschwitz is still sinking after all — if it has not been sitting, just upright, on the sandy bottom ever since 1988, already mortally torpedoed by Fred Leuchter: just like the battleship HMS Queen Elizabeth in Alexandria, holed in 1942 by an Italian Navy one-man-torpedo team.”
In the mail is a photocopy of a learned paper tucked away in Osteuropa’s issue for May 2002, a respected German journal on eastern Euroepan history (DVA), Fritjof Meyer, a leading editor of Der Spiegel, quietly abandons Krema II at Auschwitz as a gas chamber, saying — on the basis of Pelt’s latest research finds — that it was never used, and only being prepared for possible use as one (yeah, right); until now, it was claimed that a million souls perished in that underground mortuary, with cyanide dropped through holes in the roof. We even had video, which I showed in court, of Professor Robert Jan Van Pelt sobbing on the roof of Krema II and calling this building the epicenter of the world’s genocide history.
Now Meyer writes that all the killings, such as they were, were done off site in the two “bunkers” (i.e. the converted peasant cottages of which the Auschwitz officials Aumeier and Höss both talked, and which I freely agreed at the trial may have been used on a modest scale for gassings). That is, unless I have read the paper completely wrongly. Meyer also cuts the number killed there from 4,000,000 to not much over 300,000, which is close to what the Kraków Trial found in 1947.

In delicious vignettes, Meyer reveals too that:
* until the Soviet collapse in 1989 Auschwitz staff were promised instant dismissal if they publicly doubted the figures: but he himself still goes on to quote as an authority the very Auschwitz official, Franciszek Piper, a communist (and Jewish) “historian”, who issued the threats of dismissal; and that
* my old enemy and rival, the late Martin Broszat, quietly deleted from his “scientific” publication of the Rudolf Höss memoirs all the blatantly phoney figures which might otherwise have aroused scepticism.
Gradually the ducks are waddling into a row. Of course it would be nice if Pelt had admitted this in the Lipstadt trial: Mr Justice Gray could surely not have then found against me. But his paymasters would have been none too happy, I suppose.
I don’t recall seeing this May article blazoned in headlines around the world the same way that my financial devastation and eviction that month were.
I have always argued that the original Holocaust figures are probably exaggerated by a factor of ten, and Meyer’s article also supports this proposition.
Published without any fuss in May 2002, Meyer’s paper is nonetheless a noteworthy breakthrough, and a victory for revisionism and Real History (but won at what a price…)
