500 Known Mass Graves in Ukraine: 500 mass graves might sound impressive to the casual observer, but this is only because the casual observer doesn’t actually know that much about the Holocaust. First off, the alleged death camps were all located in Poland. Not Germany, and certainly not Ukraine. Mentioning mass graves in Ukraine is a deferral to ‘bullets in the East’. As I’ve said before, bringing this up is an attempt to distract from the problems with the narrative of the alleged homicidal gas chambers. And, as I have demonstrated before, the killing of Jews in the East was because they were partisans acting against the German army.
I have previously devised a system for determining whether or not a mass grave can be considered evidence of a genocide. To do this the following questions need to be answered: 1. Was an archeological investigation done? 2. If so, how many bodies were found? 3. Were they even Jewish? 4. If so, were they civilians or enemies of war?
Let’s take this article from The Times of Israel. The headline, which is all most people will read, declares that Holocausts-era mass graves have been ‘uncovered’ in Ukraine. So I read the rest of the article to see if any of my questions can be answered.
Lo and behold the answer to the first question is no. This means there no way to know how many bodies are in the grave and if they were even Jewish people from the Holocaust era. Is not disturbing the dead the real reason the bodies were not exhumed?
Contrast that alleged Holocaust era mass grave with a mass grave containing victims of Stalin’s regime as reported by the following article. Great lengths were gone to do an archaeological investigation, not disturbing the resting place of these victims wasn’t a consideration here. Leaving the dead to rest in peace seems more like an excuse not to investigate, especially considering there were Jewish victims of Stalin’s purge that would have been in that mass grave.
Reminder: Great Britain, the US and other Allies teamed up with Stalin knowing full well of the atrocities he was responsible for.
I have yet to find a mass grave that can be used as evidence of a German perpetrated genocide against Jewish people. If you believe you know of one please leave a comment below.
The Jager Report and Einsatzgruppen Reports: I have previously covered the Jager Report and Einsatzgruppen Reports. To summarize, these report contain numbers of Jews killed by the Einsatzgruppen. Investigations of these reports done by revisionists like Carlo Mattogno have found that these reports are filled with inconsistencies and improbilities.
These reports do not indicate that these Jews were killed for simply being Jewish. In fact there are reports of the problems Jews were causing for the German army and native population. Holocaust Denial on Trial actually provides such a report in the following excerpt from this article. Ignoring blackout regulations puts civilians in danger by making them a target to Soviet air raids. Holocaust promoters would like to have you believe that innocent Jews were being slaughtered but that simply isn’t the case.
Most importantly, without the physical evidence of dead bodies the numbers in the reports mean nothing. And, and I demonstrated in the previous section, there are no mass graves that can be used as evidence of a genocide.
Thus far this meme is not much of a gotcha for Holocaust deniers. Will one of the last three items on the list trip me up? Read part six to find out!
