To this day the orthodox Holocaust historians maintain the narrative of Nazi made shrunken heads and tattooed human skin from Holocaust victims being found in the Buchenwald concentration (not death) camp.
In a short video on the the United States Holocaust Memorial and Museum (USHMM) website this atrocity propaganda is is being presented as serious and legitimate.
Besides the heads and tattooed skin there are preserved skull and organs. I’m not going to go into that suffice to say that this is something that is done for educational purposes all the time. Is the USHMM going to accuse the Anchorage Museum of atrocities for using authentic human bodies in their exhibits? Of course not.
Before I begin I’d like to credit Dean Irebodd’s documentary, Buchenwald—A Dumb Dumb Portrayal Of Evil, for providing me with many critical talking points.
So let’s start at the beginning, which will take us to the liberation of Buchenwald in 1945 and the table of alleged Nazi atrocities (you can watch stock footage of the scene here). This table was presented to Germans from the nearby town of Weimar to show the citizens how evil the Nazis were. On the table we can see some of the items from the USHMM video. Noticeably missing from USHMM’s video is the lampshade. Unlike the other items the lamp was never presented in the Nuremberg trial. This is probably because this lamp is obviously a normal lamp and not the human skin variety.
Tests were performed on the tattooed human skin is actually what they said it was. Although it is never explicitly said, you are led to assume that it came from Jewish victims.
Why should we assume this? Jews only accounted for 4,000 out of the 20,000 inmates. Not to mention that there is a Jewish law against tattooing.
Kenneth Kipperman, a man who has taken it upon himself to make sure the human material artifacts are preserved and treated with dignity, was able to discern the title of a book on the atrocity table. The book was a dissertation of Dr. Erich Wagner on the topic of tattooing. According to this article Wagner studied the tattoos, excluding the tattooed registration numbers, of the inmates of Buchenwald and found only 3% of the Jews in the camp were tattooed. This is about 120 people. This revelation actually gives us a plausible story of where the tattooed skin came from.
What is not plausible is that Ilse Koch had people slaughtered for their tattoos. This is because she had not been in the camp for almost 2 years before it was liberated by the Allies and the table of atrocities was presented. Are we really supposed to believe that all these alleged human skin products would have sat at the camp for 20 months waiting for the liberators to discover them? This idea becomes more preposterous when you know that a SS man, Konrad Morgen, was conducting an investigation of the camp both before and after Koch’s arrest. This investigation led to the execution of Karl-Otto Koch.
Ilse Koch is the unfortunate victim of vile slander. Stay tuned for more about her story.
What actually makes sense would be one of two things. The tattooed skin came from Dr. Wagner. Having a human skin tattoo collection not necessarily a sinister thing, especially if you study tattoos. A Japanese man named Fukushi Masaichi is celebrated for his collection. It could also be possible that the creators of the table of atrocities provided the collection of human skin themselves.
In his documentary Dean Irebodd brings up a question that the orthodox Holocaust historians don’t want you to think about:
Answer? We don’t.
