Still looking for that gotcha evidence.
Physical Evidence: This item is rather vague and I could assume that 500 known mass graves in Ukraine is what they’re referring to, but I want to address that separately. The following is the Wikipedia entry for Evidence and documentation for the Holocaust. This is another list that may look impressive to the casual Holocaust believer. However none of it holds up to scrutiny. The fact that circumstantial evidence is even on the list is quite laughable. Today, however, the focus is on material evidence.
Wikipedia claims that thousands of mass graves exist. And their sources? Two things I have already debunked! You can read about the Einsatzgruppen mass graves here. You can read about how Father Desbois’ work is a sham here. To sum it up, the findings of these two sources are inconclusive and offer no evidence for the Holocaust narrative.
Yes it is true that the camps still exist. That is not in dispute. The question is where they extermination camps and were homicidal gas chambers being used as these alleged death camps. Wikipedia references a study by Jan Markiewicz who found low concentrations of cyanide residue in the alleged gas chambers. It is claimed that the lower concentrations found in the alleged gas chambers are consistent with the amount of cyanide needed to kill humans. You can read my article on why using lower concentrations of Zyklon B is no excuse for the lack of Prussian blue here.
Germar Rudolf’s book, The Chemistry of Auschwitz, addresses the Markiewicz study on pages 306-306, 338-343. The first two images below are from Germar Rudolf’s testing results for cyanide at Auschwitz/Birkenau and the last two images are Markiewicz’s results. As you can see both tests show traces of cyanide (CN) in control samples. You can also see that results from the alleged gas chambers are similar to some of the control samples. The results labeled ‘BW‘ are from the delousing chambers and you can see the CN content is much higher. There is much more to the test results including methodology used and further result interpretation. I encourage you to read the pages cited above if you’d like to learn more.
According to Germar Rudolf:
Thus Markiewicz’s testing does not prove the use of Zyklon B in the alleged gas chambers.
Next Wikipedia references the introduction holes of the alleged gas chambers and uses the BBC as a citation to the claims that these holes existed. Now I’m going to level with you. This matter is very complex and deserves it’s own article, which I haven’t written yet. Chemistry of Auschwitz explains the matter on pages 132-147 and dispels all claims that these introduction holes existed. I mean who are you going to believe? A ‘recent paper’ referenced by the television network that casted a Black man to play Achilles or a chemist who has written many books about the Holocaust?
Discussions from the Nuremberg trials are obviously not physical evidence of the Holocaust. I include this paragraph for the sake of completeness and because of the hilarious claim it makes at the end, “By means of a special process which Wirth had invented, they were burned in the open air without the use of fuel.”” I wrote about this claim in a previous article. The witness never reveals how Writh’s special process for burning bodies without fuel works. My guess is that it works by magic. Remember kids, you can’t pick and choose what to believe about the Holocaust. You have to believe all of it or you’re a big old evil denier!
Next Wikipedia tries to explain where all the ashes of the burned bodies of over 1 million people might have gone. Wikipedia claims there are documents that say ash was used as fertilizer. But where is the evidence that this was ashes from human remains? There are also photographs from Treblinka of what looks like ash piles. Oh, there’s photos of what could be ash piles? Well, I’m convinced! The Nazis burned over a million bodies outside without the use of fuel and then used what would be multiple tons of ashes as fertilizer. Sounds totally legit.
I’ll take your word for it that Zyklon B wasn’t explosive in normal application. So what?
Witness testimony can not prove the use of homicidal gas chambers. A court decision can not prove the use of homicidal gas chambers.
The rest of the Wikipedia article are documents and testimony. I’m sure the section I covered wasn’t all meant to be presented as material evidence but I addressed it nonetheless. I will probably address the rest of the article at some point as it is the first thing that comes up on a search for ‘evidence of the Holocaust’.
So I have refuted a mainstream source on physical evidence of the Holocaust. If anyone has something I didn’t cover I encourage you to share it in the comments below.
