West German court guilty of Holocaust denial





It is a criminal offence in Germany to deny that Jews were murdered by poison gas in the appex-roofed brick building in the above photograph of the former German concentration camp Majdanek. Which is mightily ironic when you consider the fact pointed out by Carlo Mattogno, Juergen Graf and Thomas Kues in their study Sobibór: Holocaust Propaganda and Reality,1 that the verdict of the 1950 West-Berlin trial of former Sobibor "gas master" Erich Bauer, states that 15,000 Jews were shipped from Majdanek to Sobibor to be gassed, because Majdanek had no homicidal gas chambers!

6. Transport aus Maidanek. 

Einmal kam ein Transport jüdischer Häftlinge in einer Stärke von ungefähr 15.000 Mann aus dem Lager Maidanek, das keine Vergasungsanlage besass, zum Vergasen an. Da die Vergasungsanlage im Lager Sobibor gerade nicht in Ordnung war, mussten sie tagelang im Lager I auf ihre Vernichtung warten, ohne beköstigt zu werden. Viele von ihnen starben daher an Entkräftung. Als andere, denen etwas Essen gereicht werden sollte, sich darum schlugen, schossen die SS-Leute und auch der Angeklagte in diesen Haufen wehrloser Menschen. Der Angeklagte tötete dabei auch mindestens vier bis fünf Häftlinge.2

6. Transport from Majdanek. 

At one point a 15,000 men-strong transport of Jewish prisoners arrived from Majdanek camp, which did not possess a gassing facility [installation], to be gassed. Because the gassing facility in Sobibor camp was not [yet] in working order, they [i.e., the prisoners] had to wait all-day in Camp I for their extermination without being provided with food. Many of them therefore died of exhaustion [starvation]. When others who were handed out food fought over it, the SS and the defendant shot at the defenceless crowd. The defendant killed at least 4-5 prisoners through [doing] this.

Update 08.11.14:

I have recently learnt that it was actually Robert Faurisson who first brought attention to this matter:
