Dear Friends and Fellow Aryans (see article on anti Semitism)

For the past 55 years we have been pestered by the Jews regarding the alleged loss of Jews due to gassing by the Germans during World War II. The alleged number of lost Jews has varied from 48 million by rabbi Dr. Miklos Nyszli in his book "Behind Humanity" to 5,370,000 by Lucy Dawidowicz. This in spite of the fact that more than 4,344,371 Jews survived the concentration camps. This last number was given to us by the Jews themselves in their Zionist publication, "The Canadian Jewish News", of 1. January 1981. The number, 4,344,371, represent 99,1% of the Jews that by the end of 1980 had claimed indemnity from the German state for their stay in any of the concentration camps during World War II. Using arithmetic we come to a total number of 4,388,825 Jews who survived the war. But should we believe this is the number?

I have great doubt even as to this number especially since the number has been given to us by the Jews through the Jew's greed for money.

Let us look into the number of Jews living in the world before World War II.

Let me give you some details regarding the Jewish population in Europe prior to WWII: - the world's Jewish population faced a serious demographic crisis before WWII. This was true even for Jews living in Eastern Europe.

- during the 1930's roughly 1,000,000 Jews left the historical places in central and eastern Europe for North and South America, Palestine, western Europe and several other minor recipient countries.

- at the beginning of WWII there were less than 16 million Jews in the world. They were found in the following areas:

- United States of America: .......................................... 5,0 million (4,8)

- USSR (including Baltic states) .................................... 5,3 million (3,2)

- Palestine .................................................................. 0,4 million (0,4)

- European countries occupied by Germany during WWII: 2,9 million (6,1)

- rest of the world: ....................................................... 2,4 million (2,2)
Total ....................................................................... 16,9 million (16,6)

- at the outbreak of the war the largest part of the Jews were moved to Siberia.

Less then 15% of the Jews living in the Soviet Union fell into German hands.

- one million Jews died while fighting in the Red Army or in Siberia. (even though their brethren ran the gulags. If interested I can give you names of some of the Jews who ran the gulags in the USSR.)

After WWII there were 14,7 million Jews in the world. They were spread as follows:

- United State of America ............................................... 5,2 million (5,0)

- USSR (including Baltic states) ...................................... 4,3 million (2,0)

- Palestine .................................................................... 0,6 million (0,6)

- European countries occupied by Germany during WWII: 2,4 million (1,1)

- rest of the world: ....................................................... 2,2 million (2,3
Total ........................................................................ 14,7 million (11,0)

These numbers come from the book "The Dissolution of the Eastern European Jewry" by Walter N. Sanning, 2nd Edition Torrance/California 1985 We must trust Sanning in his specification of the number of Jews. His book has been praised by Jews around the world.

The World Zionists give higher numbers for Jews before WWII and in 1945 than Sanning, but since the Zionists are a propaganda organisation I do not think it is wise to believe their numbers. Zionist numbers are in brackets above.

Let us look further into the number of Jews in Palestine just after WWII. In 1948 Jerusalem had a population of 100,000 Jews, and in Palestine as such more than 850,000 Jews. This number was given by the UN in connection with the establishment of the state of Israel. Were did all these Jews come from? Europe!!!!

Looking closely at the rise in the numbers of Jews living in Palestine between 1939 and 1945 we see that this number has risen the same amount the population of Jews in European countries occupied by Germany has fallen.

We also know that Jews emigrated from Hungary and Romania to Palestine during WWII. They emigrated without the concurrance of Germany through Turkey on ships to Palestine. This was stopped as Germany did not want to ruin her relationship with the Arab states.

Based on these numbers not many Jews died during WWII

We might agree on a few thousands, with an upward limit of 150.000 Jews. Of these we know that some 74.000 inmates died at Auschwitz. This number is based on the death books discovered in Moscow after perestroika. Not all these dead inmates were Jews.

Since none of the death books of the other camps have been discovered we are not in a position to give any realistic numbers for those camps.

Treblinka was a camp used early on during the war for producing sand and gravel for roads during the early campaign against Russia - and since Germany at that time had full dominion over her own air space we must assume that they could get medicines to those inmates at Treblinka who became sick. Further, as Treblinka is not located in an area of damp with a high water table it is less likely that the amount of typhus, cholera and other deseases could spread among the inmates as they did at Auschwitz. To dig out sand and gravel one does not need many men because the Germans had machinery to help them.

Majdanek was another camp located in the east of Poland. The camp at Majdanek was obviously a camp for detaining Jews before they were to be shipped eastwards. When the Germans did not manage to overrun Russia as they had planned the Jews who were gathered at Majdanek had to be shipped to other camps in Poland or in the Baltic states. We might even think that some of them ended up in Auschwitz and were either transported westwards as the Germans withdrew or chose to wait for the oncoming Soviets.

Belzec, Chelmno and Sobibor were camps in the east of Poland and surely used as rest places before transportation eastwards into Russia. For those of you who know your holocaust history you might recall that Belzec was the camp were the Germans killed Jews by forcing them to stand in water up to their hips before turning on the electricity which killed the Jews. After all the Jews were killed the water was pumped out and the electrified iron floor which the Jews stood on was again turned on and the dead Jews were fried to ashes. This story was told by Dr. philo. (PHD.) Stefan Szende in the book "Poland's Last Jew". Even Simon Wiesenthal has told this story. Everyone who has by mistake left a chop too long in the pan knows it is impossible to burn/fry a chop to ashes.

Let me now return to the fantastic numbers of The Canadian Jewish News", of 1. January 1981: 4,344,371. This is obviously the number of Jews who have blackmailed Germany into paying them money, but the number has nothing to do with the number of Jews within the grasp of Germany during WWII.

If one adds the post WWII numbers of Jews given by the Zionists to the number of allegedly gassed Jews given by Lucy Dawidowicz, 5,370,000, one comes to a larger number than that of the Jews living in occupied Europe before WWII. See for yourselves: 1,100,000+5,370,000 = 6,470,000. This number is higher than the number of Jews who lived in occupied Europe before WWII. And in this number we have not accounted for those Jews who survived WWII and demanded compensation from Germany, 4,344,371 Jews.

If we then add the Zionist numbers for Jews living in occupied Europe to the number of those whom by 1981 had gotten compensation from Germany we get: 5,444,371 and to this number add the rise in Jewish population in Palestine between 1939 and 1945 we get 5,844,371. This leaves us with a number of dead Jews of 255,629 which is far from the number given by the Jew Lucy Dawidowicz.



Well, we could estimate this to be 1,3% (per cent) per year of a positive rise in population. Based on the number of Jews living in Germany and the countries she occupied this would be based on 2,9 million Jews giving a rise in population per year of 37,700. But this number must be less since the greatest part of the Jews were in camps and were not allowed to copulate - the Germans did not want an explosion in the number of Jews during the Jews stay in these camps. I say this knowing that there were delivery rooms and midwives in each camp.


The population of Jews only increased by 1,6 million between 1945 and 1985. This shows that they are not that fertile. You can surely use this number for your further discussions with friends and proselytes of the Jews. Ask them to explain.


Whatever way we look at the numbers of Jews in the world in 1939 and 1945 as provided to us by the Jews we cannot find a loss amounting to millions.

Any way we look at the number of "lost" Jews as given above:

- Sanning: 100,000

- Zionists: 255,629

- my estimate: 150,000

We are far from any millions of Jews walking towards chambers of any kind, either one in a mountain containing a frying pan or in Auschwitz-Birkenau with it's alleged gas chambers.

The above number must be understood based on the unhealthy situation in some of the camps, people getting sick from typhus, cholera, tuberculosis and other illnesses.

According to the Zionists the number of Jews in the world between 1939 and 1945 fell by 5,600,000.   According to Lucy Dawidowicz 5,370,000 were gassed.

If this number is correct the Germans were responsible for Jews who died in the USSR as well as all other countries.

No, my statement regarding something rotten in those numbers stands.

If any of you are interested we can return at a later time to look at the various eye witnesses and what they have said regarding how the gassing took place. If anyone wants to discuss my statement I am more than willing to do so and will even post your comments on the net.

WWI and the Jews TOP

How the Great War affected a great number of Jews around the world.

Most people are aware of the place of World War II in Jewish history. The impact of World War I, however, is not as widely known or discussed. WWI was a significant turning point for world Jewry on several fronts. The following article describes the serious and lasting effects that the First World War had on world Jewry. It is reprinted with permission from A Historical Atlas of the Jewish People edited by Eli Barnavi and published by Schocken Books.

The First World War, the most appallingly savage international conflict in all preceding history, had a profound impact on world Jewry. This was due to the existence of a large concentra­tion of Jews within one of the principal arenas, the enlistment of unprecedented numbers of Jews to the armies of the belligerent nations, and the success of Jewish leaders in influencing the political policies of the major powers. Furthermore, increasing tensions during the war years deepened the hostile attitudes towards the Jews, particularly in Germany and in Eastern Europe.

world war I and jewsThe war on the eastern front between Russia and the Central Powers (Germany and Austria) was conducted on territories that were home to almost four million Jews. In the autumn of 1914 and the winter of 1915, Russian forces occupied Austrian Galicia, and in the spring and summer of 1915, Germany and Austria conquered Congress Poland (the duchy annexed by Russia according to the treaties of 1815), Volhynia, Lithua­nia, and western Belorussia. Under Russian rule, the Jews were suspected of collaboration with the enemy, and 600,000 of them were banished from the front by the czarist army, a traumatic experience and aneconomic catastrophe that was still felt long after the war. To aid their displaced and impoverished brethren, Jews around the world established welfare organizations on a scale previously unknown.

At the outbreak of the war, the Jews, eager to demonstrate their loyalty to their respective countries, rallied to the war effort. Initially the Jews in Russia were no exception, but when the policy of deportation was implemented, many Jews began to pray for the victory of the Central Powers. Nevertheless, about half a million Jews donned Russian uniforms. On the opposite side, almost 100,000 Jews were serving in the German army. Yet despite this massive enlistment, accusations of evasion and of profiteer­ing were brought against the Jews in both countries, and official investi­gations were instigated. Although the conclusions of these inquiries were never published, the statistics indicate that the percentage of Jewish losses was in no way smaller than that of the non-Jewish population. Suspicions concerning their loyalty were even voiced in England and the United States, since the Jews did not hide their hostility toward the oppressive Russian autocracy, the ally of the two powers; and indeed, there were those among the recently arrived immigrants from Russia who refused to enlist. In both countries, Jews of German origin were requiredto sign humiliating public declarations of loyalty.

While the loyalty of Jewish individuals was torn between the opposing camps, Jewish international associations, including the World Zionist Organization, declared themselves neutral. But in view of the nature of the czarist regime and the large proportion of Polish and Russian Jews, the sympathy of most Jewish leaders lay with Germany and the Austro­-Hungarian Empire. The German Foreign Office was aware of this, and during the first years of the war tried to exploit this to further German interests. GermanJews all over the world founded the "Committee for the East" which disseminated pro‑German propaganda among the Jews in Poland. Zionists in Germany conducted negotiations with the Foreign Office concerning cooperation over Palestine, and in 1915 the Jewish philosopher, Hermann Cohen, went to the United States to ask the Jews to try to persuade the American government to enter the war on Germany's side. These efforts undoubtedly spurred the British government to make advances to the pro‑English minority within the Zionist Organization, which contributed to the publication of the Balfour Declaration in November 1917.

Despite this first diplomatic victory for political Zionism, by the end of the war the majority of Jews found themselves confronting hatred and trouble. In Germany, the Jews were identified with the republican regime imposed on the country by the victors. Vanquished and humiliated, many Germans consoled themselves with the "stab in the back" myth, counting the Jews among the chief traitors. As the perennial scapegoat, the Jews were also blamed by many for the Bolshevik coup d'etat of October 1917; approximately 100,000 Jews were killed in the anti‑Bolshevik campaigns conducted by Ukrainians, Poles, and Russians.

The war's great upheavals changed the demographic map of the Jewish people. During the war, intercontinental migration dwindled, but there were large movements of refugees within Europe. Once the war was over, hundreds of thousands of Jews began leaving Europe again.

Before WWI alternatives considered had been Argentina and Uganda. But after, Palestine remained the only option, especially after the Balfour Declaration in 1917.

"Before 1917 some Zionist leaders took seriously proposals for Jewish homelands in places other than Palestine. Herzl's Der Judenstaat argued for a Jewish state in either Palestine, "our ever-memorable historic home", or Argentina, "one of the most fertile countries in the world". In 1903 British cabinet ministers suggested the British Uganda Program, land for a Jewish state in "Uganda" (in today's Kenya). Herzl initially rejected the idea, preferring Palestine, but after the April 1903 Kishinev pogrom Herzl introduced a controversial proposal to the Sixth Zionist Congress to investigate the offer as a temporary measure for Russian Jews in danger. Notwithstanding its emergency and temporary nature, the proposal still proved very divisive, and widespread opposition to the plan was fueled by a walkout led by the Russian Jewish delegation to the Congress. Nevertheless, a majority voted to establish a committee for the investigation of the possibility, and it was not dismissed until the Seventh Zionist Congress in 1905."

"In response to this, the Jewish Territorialist Organization (ITO) led by Israel Zangwill split off from the main Zionist movement. The territorialists attempted to establish a Jewish homeland wherever possible, but went into decline after 1917 and the ITO was dissolved in 1925. From that time Palestine was the sole focus of Zionist aspirations."

What Happened to the Jews After the Holocaust?

Not all of the Jews in Europe were murdered in the Holocaust. After the fall of the Third Reich, Europe was a war-torn shambles. Hundreds of thousands of people were homeless and seeking a new life. These were known at the time as "displaced persons." Among them were several hundred thousand Jews who had either survived the horrors of the concentration camps or escaped the Nazis altogether. Resettling these displaced persons was the job of the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration (UNRRA). In 1947, because of problems with the UNRRA, a new organization, the International Refugee Organization (IRO) took over the work of finding homes for the displaced persons.

Resettling the survivors was not an easy job. When the IRO took over in 1947, there were approximately 1,200,000 Jewish and non-Jewish people looking for homes. In the next four years the IRO was able to resettle about a million people.

The Jews represented a serious problem for the IRO. They did not want to return to the homes they had before the war. Some Jews were, in fact, murdered by mobs when they tried to return to Poland. Others did not want to return to countries now run as Soviet puppet states. The problem was complicated because many countries refused to allow the survivors to enter. A large number of Jewish survivors wanted to go to Palestine; the British were against such immigration and allowed fewer than 100,000 Jews to enter before Israel declared its independence in May, 1948.

Another complication was the attitude of certain officials in the United States who deliberately impeded Jews from immigrating there despite the policy of the government to allow them to find new homes in the United States. In 1945, President Harry Truman had appointed Earl G. Harrison to make a report of the condition and needs of refugees, especially Jews. His excellent report resulted in a reorganization of UNRRA and, later the establishment of the IRO. Truman asked Congress several times to relax immigration restrictions for displaced persons and, on December 22, 1945, announced in the Truman Directive that the policy of the United States was to give preferential treatment to displaced persons. President Truman continued to be personally interested in this problem, but was unable to effectively put his policies into action.

Looking for new homes approximately 137,000 Jews came to the United States (which admitted almost 400,000 refugees). Other countries where Jews found new homes were France, Canada, Great Britain, and Israel. The two countries receiving the largest numbers of emigrés were the United States and Israel.

In the judgment of one historian, the efforts made by the United States and other countries did not meet the needs of the Jewish refugees in Europe, who were often denied the opportunity to find new homes and new lives. As Leonard Dinnerstein states in his book about the refugees: "In sum, strong national prejudices, procrastination in Congress, and some less than dynamic leadership from the White House combined to prolong the miseries of those Jews who survived the Holocaust."
