The following is the first video I got when I searched for ‘Holocaust’ on YouTube. Unbelievable is an apt term for descripting the orthodox claims made about Auschwitz because I certainly don’t believe them.
However, PBS is using the term ‘unbelievable’ for a different reason. Allow my robot assistant, Bill, to explain:
Very interesting, thank you, Bill.
‘The Unbelievable Reality of Auschwitz’ is from a multiple-episode documentary called, The U.S. and the Holocaust, produced by PBS. That documentary is basically meant to be guilt trip for White Americans by accusing them of not doing enough for the Jews during WW2. Nevermind the fact that 16 million, mostly White, Americans served in WW2 and 405,000, mostly White, Americans died in WW2. Nonetheless, discussion of this documentary deserves its own article and today I will stick to addressing some of the claims made by ‘The Unbelievable Reality of Auschwitz’.
The video features Holocaust survivor Eva Geiringer. At mark 2:01 Geiringer claims that she was not sent to the gas chambers because the doctor doing the selection was wearing a wide hat and didn’t notice how young she was. She calls this the “first miracle” (note that this term is similar to calling it unbelievable, thereby invoking the ‘unbelievability paradox’). To me, a person that is not an average Holocaust believer, the fact that an SS doctor would wear a hat that would impede his ability to do his job seems pretty dumb. I doubt the average Holocaust believer would even notice this small nitpick. Instead the claim that the Nazi’s mudered those that could not work is reinforced by Geiringer’s story. Of course there were children living in Auschwitz and they looked pretty healthy.
At mark 2:49 Geiringer says that all of their hair was cut off, and they were sent to actual showers. She relates this information after telling the story of how the Nazis dehumanized them by giving them their numbered tattoos and taking away their names. Thus, the audience is setup to believe that the life-saving act of delousing to curb the spread of disease was just another Nazi cruelty.
Next the documentary brings up The Auschwitz report.
There seems to be some internal inconsistency as the documentary claims it contained first hand testimony from three men who escaped from Auschwitz while the Holocaust Encyclopedia says it was two. Why can’t the state and privately sponsored propaganda apparatus (PBS) and the state and privately sponsored propaganda apparatus (The United States Holocaust Memorial and Museum) get their stories straight?
I also couldn’t help but notice that the diagram from the report of a supposed homicidal gas chamber is completely inaccurate.
The first image is the actual blueprint of crematorium II (crema III is a mirror image of crema II), where a gas chamber was alleged to be housed in. I have added the numbers for identification purposes. The second image is a layout for crema IV and V. As you can see the diagram from the report isn’t even close. Of course the average Holocaust believer watching this documentary wouldn’t know that. They wouldn’t know that PBS and anyone else trying to present this report as being reliable are being dishonest. They would just going on listening and believing.

- Alleged gas chamber (underground)
- Crematorium ovens (ground level)
Now that I have seen two state and privately sponsored propaganda apparatuses presenting ‘The Auschwitz Report’ as being reliable I was compelled to go into detail about the report. Click here to read about it.
