Section 39: Eichmann Only Admitted Deporting Jews, Never Murdering Them
The 1961 trial of Adolf Eichmann, an SS Lieutenant Colonel in charge of arranging the deportation of Jews to the east, has also been touted as “conclusive evidence” of the Holocaust.
Actually, at his trial, Eichmann in fact specifically denied murdering anyone, although he did say that if anyone had died as a result of the deportations which he had arranged, then he would have been indirectly responsible.
Below: Adolf Eichmann on trial in Israel. He denied killing anybody and his “memoirs” have obviously been altered, as evidenced by gaping inconsistencies in their chronological narrative and blatantly false claims.
The Jewish journalist Hannah Arendt, in her book Eichmann in Jerusalem (Penguin, 1978), wrote that the evidence presented against the SS man was hearsay evidence, “rumours testified to” (p. 208), and therefore without legal validity. The testimony of all witnesses who had “seen him with their own eyes” collapsed the moment a question was addressed to them.
Arendt also described how Eichmann was placed under severe mental and physical pressure to make statements, revealing how he was kept tied to a bed for eight days after his kidnapping (p. 241).
The Israeli government-paid defense lawyers refused to cross-examine any prosecution witnesses, and Time magazine of April 14, 1961 reported that “Eichmann had found it impossible to recruit ex-Nazi colleagues to serve as defense witnesses. Reason: the Israeli government had refused to promise that they themselves would not be arrested if they set foot on Israeli soil.”
During the trial, Eichmann claimed that he had seen “preparations in the East for extermination.” This was a reference to his earlier claim, made in a taped interview in Argentina, that he had visited a gas chamber in operation at the Majdanek camp near Lublin in “the latter part of 1941” for which a Russian U-Boat motor was used to generate exhaust fumes which allegedly killed Jews.
This claim has always been a subject of dispute because even the Holocaust storytellers claim that there were no gas chambers at Majdanek in 1941.
The Lublin camp was built as a prisoner-of-war camp in 1941 to accommodate some of the thousands of Soviet soldiers captured during the opening offensive of the German invasion of Russia, and the official guide book handed out at the camp museum in 2010 stated that the “construction of the gas chambers at Majdanek started in August 1942 and was completed in October 1942.”
This would make Eichmann’s claim to have seen a gassing in 1941 impossible. So why did he say this?
Section 40: Eichmann’s Doctored “Memoirs”
The reason might be found in the rest of his so-called memoirs, which were published in Life magazine in 1960 and which contain so many “mistakes” and contradictions that they give cause for great doubt as to their authenticity.
For example, in the section entitled “The Final Solution: Liquidation,” Eichmann claims that the Wannsee Conference took place on “Jan. 10, 1942”—whereas it in fact took place on January 20th (Life, Vol. 49, No. 22, November 28, 1960, pp. 24, 101–102). It is unlikely that Eichmann would have made such an error, seeing as he was responsible for organizing the meeting.
Other impossible claims made in Eichmann’s “memoirs,” which cast further doubt on their authenticity, included a claim that he had witnessed the gassing of 1,000 Jews in buses which “were normal, high-windowed affairs with all their windows closed. During the trip, I was told, the carbon monoxide from the exhaust pipe was conducted into the interior of the buses. It was intended to kill the passengers immediately.”
Apart from the fact that an ordinary windowed bus full of people would never be airtight, there is no possible way that the victims would have not opened or smashed out the windows as soon as the exhaust fumes entered the interior.
This version also contradicts the Holocaust storytellers’ claim that the “gas buses” used by Nazis were specially constructed machines with no windows.
