The lead-up to the opening of the “Bookkeeper of Auschwitz” Oskar Groening trial has started–and has been marked by the “gas chamber” at Auschwitz suddenly moving location away from the long-claimed “bunkers underground the crematoria” to a “half-built farmyard outside the camp,” according to a new report by Holocaust historian Peter Winter.
Writing on his personal blog, Winter, who is author of the best-selling The Six Million: Fact or Fiction, wrote that the “first day of the Oskar Groening court case has now dawned. SS sergeant Oskar Groening, 93, faces trial for being a guard at Auschwitz—and his appearance has generated mass media coverage in an overt attempt to hold back the growing tide of Holocaust revisionism.
“The very first thing that emerged from media coverage of the first day of media coverage is that the ‘gas chambers’ at Auschwitz have now completely changed location!
“The traditional Holocaust Storyteller’s narrative is that Jews were gassed at underground bunkers next to the crematoria in the main camp at Auschwitz.
“Now, however, according to the Daily Mail newspaper and other coverage, the ‘gas chambers’ were actually a “half-built farmyard near to the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp”—and not in the underground bunkers at all.
“According to the Daily Mail coverage, Groening allegedly said:
“‘On one night in January 1943 I saw for the first time how the Jews were actually gassed. It was in a half-built farmyard near to the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp. A gas chamber was built there. We were searching the wood nearby for prisoners who had escaped.’
“The shifting location of the “gas chambers” is something mentioned in The Six Million: Fact or Fiction, under the section discussing an article in the politically mainstream journal OstEuropa in May 2002 by the managing editor of the German magazine Der Spiegel, Fritjof Meyer (“Themen der Zeitgeschichte Fritjof Meyer Die Zahl der Opfer von Auschwitz. Neue Erkenntnisse durch neue Archivfunde”, Heft 5/2002). In that article, Meyer wrote that “new” research made it clear that there had indeed been no gassings in the mortuaries of the crematoria (as claimed by “eyewitnesses” and all the forced “confessions” obtained from SS-men). Instead, he wrote, the gassings had actually taken place in the sites now called “Bunker 1” and “Bunker 2,” a distance away from the crematoria buildings.
“The Daily Mail article offers no such explanation, of course, and just presumes that its readers are uninformed enough not to know the details of the claimed “underground gas chambers with the crematoria” story.”
Winter ends his report with an assessment of how the Groening trial will proceed:
“The Groening trial will, as predicted earlier, follow the usual pattern used in all such processes in post-war Germany: because it is a criminal offence to even suggest that there were no “gas chambers,” the only defense open to Groening will be to admit that they existed, but to deny that he was ever involved in any of the operations.
“It is a defense which, in the hysterical media-generated lynch-mob atmosphere, is unlikely to succeed.
“Nonetheless, it will be amusing to see how the location of the “gas chamber” at Auschwitz jumps around from place to place once again.”
