Yesterday I explained why the claims made about Ilse Koch and her human skin collection are implausible. Today I will show that the claims of these shrunken heads being Jewish inmates is also implausible. Once again I must credit Dean Irebodd’s documentary, Buchenwald—A Dumb Dumb Portrayal Of Evil, for providing me with critical talking points.
It is not in doubt that these shrunken heads are authentic shrunken heads. What is in doubt whether they were made from Jewish inmates at the camp and whether they were even found in the camp in the first place. The former is impossible to prove or disprove so I will focus on the latter.
Here is a picture taken by after the camp was liberated. Notice how no one has long hair. This is because hair was cut in order to save lives by reducing the spread of typhus, a deadly disease spread by lice.
I have a few more things to say about that picture. It and images like it are used to promote the official Holocaust narrative. It’s important to remember this was a photo shoot done for the purposes of propaganda. The inmates had pants and shoes as you can see in the photo below which is also from Buchenwald. Yes some of them look malnourished but the presenters of pictures like this will never tell you that the Allied bombing of food supplies was the reason for this. According to The Buchenwald Report; “With this the camp food rations were about equal to the basic rations for the civilian population. In general the food rations for camp inmates remained constant up to February 1945.” When you see pictures like the one above it’s important to keep your thinking cap on and consider it with a critical mind.
Back to the shrunken heads. Yes, there were two on the table of atrocities but only one went on to be center stage at the Nuremberg trials. Sorry shrunken head #2, guess you didn’t make the cut.
The second problem with the heads being made from Jewish victims is the color. This is a shrunken head is of a caucasian woman. Although Jews are not caucasian they do share a similar skin color. the two shrunken heads from the atrocity table a much darker.
Here is are the two side by side for your viewing convenience.
Lastly we have the shoddy workmanship of the pedestal. Not only does it look like the product of an inept freshman in shop class, it also appears that there might have been some sort of plate or plaque on the front that was removed.
Any, or even all, of the items on this table of atrocities could have been from outside the camp.
Int’s important to keep in mind that America had a psychological warfare department with Eisenhower at the top (SHAEF was the Supreme Headquarters Allied Expeditionary Force).
If showing the defeated Germans a table full of supposed Nazi atrocities and then using that footage as propaganda for your own country isn’t psychological warfare then I don’t know what is.
