In a chapter headed “Questioning the confirmed death toll” in our book Debunking Holocaust Denial Theories, we take the deniers to task for asserting it would have been impossible to six millions Jews at Auschwitz and other death camps over the course of the Holocaust. (See our blog of February 3).

The deniers of course mischievously overlook the fact that many of the Jewish deaths occurred in what historians refer to as “open-air killings” throughout Europe outside  of the death camps.

A further excerpt from the book follows:

One of many such examples is Babi Yar, a ravine in Ukraine’s capital city Kiev, where over just two September days (29th to 30th) in 1941, approximately 34,000 Jews were killed by death squads.

The History.com website details this event beneath the headline “Babi Yar massacre begins.” An excerpt from the article follows:

“The German army took Kiev on September 19, and special SS squads prepared to carry out Nazi leader Adolf Hitler’s orders to exterminate all Jews and Soviet officials found there. Beginning on September 29, more than 30,000 Jews were marched in small groups to the Babi Yar ravine to the north of the city, ordered to strip naked, and then machine-gunned into the ravine. The massacre ended on September 30, and the dead and wounded alike were covered over with dirt and rock.

“Between 1941 and 1943, thousands more Jews, Soviet officials, and Russian prisoners of war were executed at the Babi Yar ravine in a similar manner. As the German armies retreated from the USSR, the Nazis attempted to hide evidence of the massacres by exhuming the bodies and burning them in large pyres. Numerous eyewitnesses and other evidence, however, attest to the atrocities at Babi Yar, which became a symbol of Jewish suffering in the Holocaust.”

We have spoken to local Ukrainians of non-Jewish descent who confirm that in the western Ukraine entire towns that were almost exclusively Jewish before WW2 now have no Jews as all were executed by the Nazis.

Most tellingly, eyewitnesses to some of these massacres include high ranking German officers – one of those being convicted war criminal German SS-Gruppenführer Otto Ohlendorf, head of the intelligence and security division Inland-SD and commanding officer of Einsatzgruppe D task force, which perpetrated mass murder in Moldova, Ukraine and the Crimea.

In Herr Ohlendorf’s own words, “The Einsatzgruppen had the mission to protect the rear of the troops by killing the Jews, Gypsies, Communist functionaries, active Communists, and all persons who would endanger the security.”

The Einsatzgruppe’s victims were in reality almost entirely Jewish civilians. And directly contradicting Ohlendorf’s assertion that the mission was to “protect the rear of the troops,” not a single Einsatzgruppe member was killed in action during these operations – essentially proof that the true mission was to slaughter innocent people.

In its first year alone (1941), the Einsatzgruppen killed 300,000 civilians, mainly by shootings at mass-killing sites outside major towns.

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM) has recorded the eyewitness account of one survivor of an Einsatzgruppen massacre in Piryatin, Ukraine, where on April 6, 1942, the Germans killed 1600 Jews. It reads as follows:

“I saw them do the killing. At 5:00 pm they gave the command, “Fill in the pits.” Screams and groans were coming from the pits. Suddenly I saw my neighbor Ruderman rise from under the soil … His eyes were bloody and he was screaming: “Finish me off!” … A murdered woman lay at my feet. A boy of five years crawled out from under her body and began to scream desperately. “Mommy!” That was all I saw, since I fell unconscious.”

Peter’s review follows in full:

First-rate contribution to an important topic. ★★★★★

This book is the result of prodigious research. James and Lance Morcan consulted noted scholars of the Holocaust. After James Morcan discovered my book, entitled “Memories of Evil — Recalling a World War II Childhood,” he wrote a review of same on his website. Thereafter he asked me lots of questions via e-mail: about life in the concentration camps, about my life in the U.S. after the WWII. He also asked me many questions about anti-Semitism and Holocaust-denial in the U.S. I kept feeding him material on this topic and it turned that he used in his book.

I consider James and Lance Morcan true renaissance men. I recommend their book to everyone who has an open mind and wishes to learn more about this important topic.

 

Peter Kubicek is the author of Memories of Evil: Recalling a World War II Childhood, which James reviewed recently. (See blog post of March 11). You can find Memories of Evil on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Memories-Evil-Recalling-World-Childhood-ebook/dp/B00A6U49BK/

***************************************

Our latest book,  DEBUNKING HOLOCAUST DENIAL THEORIES: Two Non-Jews Affirm the Historicity of the Nazi Genocide, aims to end Holocaust denial once and for all by tackling the bizarre phenomenon head-on.

 

Holocaust ebook cover

New book inspired by the alarming global rise in anti-Semitism.

 

Debunking Holocaust Denial Theories  was written in close consultation with Holocaust survivors and World War Two historians, and no stone is left unturned in meticulously verifying the historical facts of the genocide. We present a wide array of sources including Nazi documentation, eyewitness accounts, scientific reports and shocking photographic evidence to shut down the debate deniers wish to create.

One by one, the various arguments Holocaust deniers use to try to discredit wartime records are carefully scrutinized and then systematically disproven. Theories debunked include: the six million death toll figure being an exaggeration; gas chamber exterminations being fictitious; Adolf Hitler and the Third Reich being wrongly vilified; the analysis of Holocaust records being a taboo due to specific laws in Europe criminalizing deniers; “Evil Zionists” and Israel being so powerful that they can censor history.

The Holocaust is shown in this book’s pages to be one of the most well-documented and most historically and forensically-proven crimes of the 20th Century. In the process, many of the world’s most infamous deniers, including disgraced British historian David Irving and the former President of Iran Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, are revealed to be nothing but anti-Semites seeking to further denigrate, undermine and demoralize the world’s Jewish population.

In this enlightening read that covers more than two millennia of global history, anti-Semitism is shown not only to be the root cause of every form of Holocaust denial, but also the reason for the relentless persecution of the Jews since Biblical times. The authors quote verbatim the often sickening and always baseless comments of kings, emperors, politicians, popes, bishops and muftis about the Jews and why they chose to commit numerous genocides against them over the centuries. These historical quotes prove eerily similar to the vicious anti-Semitic statements made by Holocaust deniers of this era…

If you wish to learn more about WW2 and the Nazi extermination camps, if you are confused by all the convoluted conspiracy theories circulating on the Internet about the Holocaust, or if you are currently a denier yourself, then this book is a must read.
