'CONSTRUCTION PLANS OF TRUE HELL' Auschwitz Blueprints Go on Display in Berlin

'CONSTRUCTION PLANS OF TRUE HELL'
Auschwitz Blueprints Go on Display in Berlin

Original blueprints of the Auschwitz death camp, discovered by chance in a Berlin apartment last year, have gone on display in the German capital. Vladislav Bartoszewski, an Auschwitz survivor, said they give a glimpse of "true hell".

Original blueprints showing construction plans for the Auschwitz death camp have gone on display in Berlin in an exhibition opened on Monday evening by a survivor, 86-year-old former Polish Foreign Minister Vladislav Bartoszewski.

"The exhibition gives a shocking insight into the abyss," Bartoszweski said in a speech, "even if the objects on display seem harmless. Or maybe precisely because of that. There are blueprints, building instructions. Technical drawings. Calculations and maps."

"The horrific thing about them lies in their systematic nature. In their cold perfectionism. In their professional quality. The plans of Auschwitz shake the soul of every thinking and feeling individual because they're the expression of an inhumanity created by humans. They are the construction plans of true hell."

The exhibition is being shown at the Berlin headquarters of German publishing group Axel Springer, publisher of the mass-circulation Bild newspaper, until February 28.

Bartoszweski was imprisoned by the Nazis in Auschwitz in 1940, before it had been converted from a concentration camp into a death camp. He was released after he became seriously ill.

The construction plans are dated 1941 and 1942 and include a gas chamber and a crematorium. More than a million people were murdered in Auschwitz. An estimated 6 million Jews were killed in the Holocaust.

This is the first time the blueprints are being displayed. They were found by chance in an apartment in Berlin last year. Historical experts from the German government archive and the Auschwitz memorial site confirmed their authenticity.

The owner's asking price for the blueprints was so high that the Federal Archive refused to purchase them. Bild bought the blueprints instead.

Ironic, Auschwitz is the blueprint for Israel. Had Auschwitz not been built, Israel would not have been created. Wow!

So that's your main objection to Auschwitz?

Allow me to disagree. The time was right for Israel's creation with or without the Auschwitz. With Balfour Declaration many years ago, the time was perfect after a world war, with Palestine under the British and with the Ottomans defeated and unable to retain territories. Even had Hitler emerged victorious, Zionists would've found a way to lobby German politicians into helping the creation of Israel.

Quite true--the zionist colonization of Palestine was well underway before WWII, and many means were employed to achieve their goal.

Ah, one little problem with that theory: if Hitler had been victorious there would have been no Jews left to go to "Israel".....

One little problem with that theory: Hitler spent years deporting Jews from Germany. Odd thing to do if he wanted all of them dead, huh.

One little problem with that theory: no country (including the U.S.) would take them.

A lie, which you know as well as I. Even the 'Official Zionist History' admits that hundreds of thousands were admitted by several countries--including the U.S.

Forced Emigration of German Jews

Not many.

By comparison, how many died in the ovens?
