Every one of the American WW2 Vets who liberated various camps said as
they approached the camps, the smell of dead bodies was so over powering
that it sickened them. They began to smell it within one mile before
reaching the entrance to the camps. For any Nazi to say they
"didn't know", "didn't see" "was not
aware" is impossible as. the smell of death was terrible and
permeated the surrounding towns.
maybe with Damascus about to fall, we can find more info about Alois
justice, Israeli style.
What if he really was just a cook? Imagine objecting to what was being
done, and getting shot? Not exactly a parallel, but "I was just a
Settler for the financial benefits".... l
these were guards that oversaw the mass murder through gassing,
starvation, bullets, and slave labor till death of literally over a
million people. You think the SS had people innocently preparing meals
in their KZ, they had slaves to do all manner of work for them. This was
a slave/death camp and most certainly all SS personnel working there
were guilty of conspiracy in mass murder. Perhaps he cooked the watery
soup that the prisoners slowly starved to death on. Absolutely
General Gubernia (Gnau) in Lublin Voivodship. The Jews were sent to
camps like Oswiecim (Aushwitz) The housing of diplace Polish citizen
(Christian and Jews) were given to Germans evacuated from eastern
Poland by Soviets. So the guy may have been a cook in Aushwitz
nevertheless he or she were Nazi supporters. Non Nazi supporters would
not get to work as free persons in Aushwith. The non Supporters would be
inmates in stripped garbs. I do research on the history of Nazi occupied
Poland and Western Soviet Union republics now Belarus, Lituania, Ukrain,
Bessarabia and Moldova. Even as a "cook he was a Nazi operative
assigned to the kitchens in Aushwitz!
