Sandra Your Questions About Commandant Of Auschwitz

Sandra asks…

Can anyone tell me who said this?

“This so-called ill treatment and torture in detention centers, stories of which were spread everywhere among the people, and later by the prisoners who were freed… were not, as some assumed, inflicted methodically, but were excesses committed by individual prison guards, their deputies, and men who laid violent hands on the detainees.”
Was it:

A) George W. Bush
B) John Ashcroft
C) Donald Rumsfeld
D) Someone else

If you answered “someone else”, you’d be right. It was Rudolf Hoess, SS commandant of the infamous Auschwitz death camp where over 2.5 million people were murdered.

It is a nice quote and demonstrates how close the US & UK are coming to Nazi methods.

Betty Your Questions About Commandant Of Auschwitz

Betty asks…

Why did the people who supported the Nazis tolerated Jews being exterminated?

I was reading this today and it really shocked me:

” We had two SS doctors on duty at Auschwitz to examine the incoming transports of prisoners. The prisoners would be marched by one of the doctors who would make spot decisions as they walked by. Those who were fit for work were sent into the camp. Others were sent immediately to the extermination plants. Children of tender years were exterminated since by reason of their youth they were unable to work. Still another improvement we made over Treblinka was that at Treblinka the victims almost always knew that they were to be exterminated, and at Auschwitz we endeavored to fool the victims into thinking that they were to go through a delousing process. Of course, frequrently they realized our true intentions and we sometimes had riots and difficults due to that fact. Very frequently, women would hide their children under their clothes, but of course when we found them we would send the children in to be exterminated. It took from three to fifteen minutes to kill the people in the death chamber, depending upon climatic conditions. We knew when the people were dead because their screaming stopped. We usually waited about one half-hour before we opened the doors and removed the bodies. After the bodies were removed our special commandos took off the rings and extracted the gold from the teeth of the corpses” – Hoss, commandant of the Auschwitz camp from May 1, 1940 to December 1, 1943

My main questions are: (1) Were the German people aware that the concentration camps were killing Jews? (2) Why didn’t the Germans protested against their Nazi government over the horrible treatment of Jews? (3) And, how did the Nazis raitonalized killing people if they didn’t view it as psychologically taxing?

Our pick of the answers:

Read Mein Kampf, where The Fuhrer spells out the reasons. Before Hitler came into power, powerful Jews were using their influence to corrupt German society, similar to what Jewish supremacists are doing to the entire western world today. After Germany’s economy completely tanked, the already fed-up German people were ready for a leader (i.e. Hitler) to restore long-lost German nationalism.
