It's no exaggeration to say 5 to 6 million were killed at Auschwitz

April 1945 affidavit of Emil Worgul, a part of Nuremberg trials document PS-2222 (found here):

"It is no exaggeration to say that Auschwitz took the lives of 5-6,000,000 people. When the extermination of the Hungarian Jews in the spring of 1944 took place, 975,000 were gassed to death."


  1. Send this affidavit to the HET, who can then send it onto the Daily Mail and the BBC news. It can provide definitive proof and reinforce the faith.
    Actually the Daily Mail would run it on the front page.The BBC would run it on their internet site as a new find !
    BTW was Victor Darling part of the Hoess interrogation team?

    1. "was Victor Darling part of the Hoess interrogation team?"

      Not that I know of. Although a Captain Victor Cross of the 92nd Field Security Section certainly was.

      Cross signed (as a witness) Hoess' first confession: March 14, 1946 (NO-1210), and wrote the arrest report dated March 15, 1946, in which he admitted Frau Hoess was arrested on March 6 and didn't disclosed Hoess' whereabouts until the 11th. In 1985 Cross admitted to the curator of the Military Intelligence Museum in Chicksands that Hoess' children had been held in custody all that times as well. You can see photos of them Faurrison obtained from one of Hoess' daughters on this link, although these were taken a few years prior, the eldest son Klaus was 15 in 1946)

      In 1985 Cross donated the handcuffs which Hoess was forced to wear to the Military Intelligence Museum in Chicksands—he'd even had Hoess' name and the date of his arrest engraved upon them!

  2. Charles F. Wennerstrum, an Iowa Supreme Court justice who served as presiding judge in the Nuremberg trial criticized the one-sided handling of evidence.

    "Most of the evidence in the trials was documentary,selected from the large tonnage of captured records. The selection was made by the prosecution. The defense has access only to those documents which the prosecution considered material to the case."

    Hal Foust, Nazi Trial Judge Rips "injustice" Chicago Tribune Feb,23,1948 pp.1,2

    Quoted in : The Nuremberg Trials and the Holocaust Do the "war crimes" trials prove extermination?

    1. hey LDL

      I tracked down that newspaper article:

  3. " The defense had no fair chance to defend German foreign policy. Our prepared application for the submission of evidence was not allowed. . .Without good cause being shown, half of the 300 documents which the defense prepared were not admitted.

    Witnesses and affidavits were only admitted after the prosecution had been heard;most of them were rejected. Correspondence between Hitler and Chamberlain,reports by ambassadors and diplomatic minutes, etc., were rejected.

    Only the prosecution,not the defense, had access to German and foreign archives. The prosecution only searched for incriminating documents and their use was biased.

    It knowingly concealed exonerating documents and withheld them from the defense." . . .

    - German Foreign Minister von Ribbentrop.

    Quoted in:
    W. Maser, Nuremberg: A Nation on Trial (1979), p. 199

  4. Milton R. Konvitz a Jewish specialist of law and public administration taught at the New York university, warned at the time that the Nuremberg Tribunal

    " defies many of the most basic assumptions of the judicial process."

    - M.R. Konvitz, "Will Nuremberg Serve Justice?." Commentary, January 946 Vol. 1, No. 3, P. 11.

    1. Konvitz also said:

      "The Nuremberg trial constitutes a REAL THREAT to the basic conceptions of justice which it has taken mankind thousands of years TO ESTABLISH"

      - Professor Milton Konvitz, New York University 1946

  5. "The (Nuremberg) Tribunal shall NOT be bound by technical rules of evidence."

    Article 19 of the Statutes of the International military Tribunal at Nuremberg

    "The (Nuremberg) Tribunal shall NOT require PROOF of FACTS of common knowledge, but shall take judicial notice thereof."

    Article 21 of the Statutes of the International military Tribunal at Nuremberg

    1. It is normal in modern civilized legal procedures that "proof of facts of common knowledge" is not required.

    2. Milton R. Konvitz a Jewish specialist of law and public administration taught at the New York university, warned at the time that the Nuremberg Tribunal

      " defies many of the most basic assumptions of the judicial process."

      - M.R. Konvitz, "Will Nuremberg Serve Justice?." Commentary, January 946 Vol. 1, No. 3, P. 11.

  6. " The Nuremberg war-crimes trials were based upon a complete disregard of sound legal precedents,principles and procedures.

    The court had no real jurisdiction over the accused or their offenses; it invented ex post facto crimes; it permitted the accusers to act as prosecutors,judges,jury and executioners; and it admitted into the group of prosecutors those who had been guilty of crimes as numerous and atrocious as those with which the accused were charged.

    Hence, it is not surprising that these trials degraded international jurisprudence as NEVER BEFORE in human experience."

    - Professor Harry Elmer Barnes,

    1. "We are dealing here with the chief war criminals WHO HAVE ALREADY BEEN CONVICTED and whose conviction has been already announced by both the Moscow and Crimea [Yalta] declarations by the heads of the [Allied] governments.... The whole idea is to secure quick and just punishment for the crime." - Major-General Iona Nikitchenko (BEFORE the 'Tribunal' convened), one of the three main drafters of the London Charter, Soviet Union's judge at the Nuremberg trials, also presided over some of the most notorious of Stalin's show trials during the Great Purges of 1936 to 1938.

      "If... the judge is supposed to be impartial, it would only lead to unnecessary delays." - Major-General Iona Nikitchenko.

      "The Allies are still, technically-speaking, at war with Germany... As a military tribunal, this tribunal represents a continuation of the war efforts of the Allied nations." - American Attorney General, Robert H. Jackson, July 26th 1946.

      "Chief US prosecutor Jackson is away conducting his high-grade lynching party in Nuremberg, I don't mind what he does to the Nazis, but I hate to see the pretense that he is running a court and proceeding according to common law. This is a little too sanctimonious a fraud to meet my old-fashioned ideas." - US Supreme Court Chief Justice Harlan Fiske Stone.

      “You know how I have despised anti-Semitism. You know how strongly I feel toward those who preach intolerance of any kind. With that knowledge — you will understand when I tell you that this staff is about seventy-five percent Jewish. Now my point is that the Jews should stay away from this trial — for their own sake. For — mark this well — the charge ‘a war for the Jews’ is still being made and in the post-war years it will be made again and again. The too large percentage of Jewish men and women here will be cited as proof of this charge. Sometimes it seems that the Jews will never learn about these things. They seem intent on bringing new difficulties down on their own heads. I do not like to write about this matter —it is distasteful to me — but I am disturbed about it. They are pushing and crowding and competing with each other and with everyone else.” - Thomas Dodd, second in command on the American prosecution team, Sept. 25, 1945.

      "The entire atmosphere here is unwholesome ... Lawyers, clerks, interpreters and researchers were employed who became Americans only in recent years, whose backgrounds were imbedded in Europe's hatreds and prejudices." - U.S. Judge Wennerstrum, President of one of the IMTs but resigned and flew home because he was disgusted by the proceedings.

      "The Nuremberg trials are so repugnant to the Anglo-Saxon principles of justice that we must forever be ashamed of that page in our history ... The Nuremberg farce represents a revenge policy at its worst." - US Representative Lawrence H. Smith of Wisconsin.

      "As a representative of the American people I desire to say that what is taking place in Nuremberg, Germany, is a disgrace to the United States... A racial minority, two and a half years after the war closed, are in Nuremberg not only hanging German soldiers but trying German businessmen in the name of the United States." - John Rankin, U.S. Congressman.

    2. "a spirit of vengeance, and vengeance is seldom justice. In these trials we have accepted the Russian idea of the purpose of trials - government policy and not justice - with little relation to Anglo-Saxon heritage." - President John Fitzgerald Kennedy.

      "The Nuremberg Trials were a tragic mistake. They will haunt us always." - Major General James E. Chaney, USAF.

      "Aside from the horrendous demand for 'Unconditional Surrender,' certainly the most stupid error of America's World War Two policies was to sponsor and participate in the so-called Nuremberg Trials." - Honorable Howard Buffett. Lawyer, U.S Congress.

      "What's the difference between Nuremberg and chaining the captured vanquished to the chariot of the victor to be dragged around an arena to the plaudits of the victor's henchmen?" - Hon. George Bell Timmerman, LL.D. American jurist.

      "Our country could never live down its participation in such a shameful travesty of justice." - Major General John Shirley Wood, USA.

      "A travesty of legality and violated the basic principles of justice which have been a treasured part of our heritage." - Admiral Thomas C. Kinkaid, U.S.N. Commander, Allied Forces, S.W Pacific

      "To me the Nuremberg Trials have always been totally inexcusable and a horrible travesty of justice." - Rear Admiral Robert A. Theobald, U.S.N. Commander, North Pacific Force

      "I consider the War Trials as one of the most disgraceful manifestations of the post war hysteria." - Vice Admiral Richard H. Cruzen, U.S.N, Commander, Naval Forces, Philippines, 1951

      "I feel very strongly on the basic principles involved in 'war crimes trials' and the flagrant travesty on justice resulting from such hypocrisy." - Rear Admiral James E. Arnold, U.S.N.R

      "The war crimes trials was a reversion to the ancient practice of the savage extermination of a defeated enemy and particularly its leaders." - Admiral Husband E. Kimmel, U.S.N Commander-in-Chief, U.S. Fleet.

      "To bring them to trial under post facto law, concocted to convict them, is a piece of hideous hypocrisy and humbug." - Major General J.F.C Fuller, C.B., C.B.E., D.S.O. British military historian and author.

      "The Nuremberg Trials were a disgrace to civilisation, and, as a teacher of young men and women, I have deeply regretted that my country joined in this outrageous action." Kenneth Colegrove, Ph.D. Consultant to General Douglas MacArthur

      "I have no doubt that the Nuremberg 'War Crimes Trials' were an instrument of revenge rather than of justice. As an American citizen, I apologise to Admiral Doenitz." - Colonel Ulius L. Amoss, U.S.A.F. Deputy Chief of Staff, 9th Air Force, World War II

      "They smell. I have always considered them as legalistic hocus-pocus to give semblance of respectability to barbarous vengeance inflicted upon opponents who have merely done their duty on the losing side of a war. A primitive idea supposed to be in disrepute for some centuries." - Rear Admiral George van Deurs, U.S.N. World War 2.

      "I attended the Nuremberg Trials for several days as a guest of one of the legal profession. One cannot help getting the impression that the law was fabricated." - General Sir Henry Charles Loyd, K.C.B., C.B., K.C.V.O., D.S.O., M.C. Commander-in-Chief, Southern Command.

      "A false tribunal based on false laws." - General Emile Janssens, Royal Belgian Army.

      "I think the Nuremberg trials are a black page in the history of the world.... I discussed the legality of these trials with some of the lawyers and some of the judges who participated therein. They did not attempt to justify their action on any legal ground." - Edgar N. Eisenhower, American attorney, brother of President Dwight D. Eisenhower

  7. The largely political nature of the Nuremberg process was the important Jewish role in organizing these show trials.

    Nahum Goldmann, one-time president of both the World Jewish Congress and the World Zionist Organization, reported in his memoir that the Nuremberg Tribunal was the brain-child of World Jewish Congress officials.

    Only after persistent effort were WJC officials able to persuade Allied leaders to accept the idea (of the tribunal)

    Nahum Goldmann, The Jewish Paradox (New York: 1978), p. 122.; N. Goldmann, The Autobiography of Nahum Goldmann (New York: 1969), pp. 216-217.;

    WJC official Rabbi Maurice Perlzweig claimed in 1949 that "it was the WJC which had secured the holding of the Nuremberg Trials ..."

    See: "W.J.C. Claims: The Nuremberg Trials," Jewish Chronicle (London), Dec. 16, 1949, p. 17.

    See also confirmatory letter by Zelmanovits in: Jewish Chronicle, Dec. 30, 1949, p. 16.

  8. And it has only gotten worse.Now they don't even require any evidence.See the Demyanjuc trial for example.

  9. OT: There is a funny "Hitler the anti-rassist"-video, showing Hitler promoting multi-cultism in Israel. It´s made by the "white rabbit".

  10. "Why on earth have all these people who made Auschwitz into a sacred cow. . . why didn't they go and look at Treblinka ? It was possible. There were survivors alive when all this started. Nobody did. It was an almost pathological concentration on this one place. A terrible place -- but it was not an extermination camp. " - Holocaust jewish historian Gitta Sereny, London Times, August, 19, 2001.
