Gas Chamber Denial in the Palestinian Media
Following are excerpts >from an article, about the 1988 trial of a Holocaust
denier in Canada, entitled "The Legend and the Truth: An American Expert
Discusses the Details" which appeared in the Palestinian newspaper
Al-Manar, May 3, 1999:

"Nobody in the West dares to stand up, when the subject is the fictitious
Nazi Holocaust against the Jews of Europe. Since the end of WWII, the
victors have imposed their hegemony over history, and forged the legend
of the Holocaust to extort the entire world, using the face of the ugly
Nazi.They planted a thorn in the side of defeated Germany to extort it
forever.

Whenever the truth reached the tongues of western intellectuals, the
democratic regimes abandoned their liberalism and treated these scientists
of History the same way the Catholic Church treated the Italian scientist
Galileo when he tried to prove the world is round. His fate was to be
executed.

Because history does not acknowledge legends, no matter what lies they
include. the Holocaust legend faced the mighty winds of truth that tore it
up by its feeble roots. Dozens of intellectuals and politicians in the West.
refuted the false claims of this legend. ending with the renown French
intellectual Rojer Garaudi. who exposed the legends that served as the
foundations of the state of Israel, and first and foremost, the legend of
the Holocaust.


Despite the importance of all these. efforts, the knockout. came >from an
American expert, a specialist in building gas chambers in American jails.
This expert, Fred Leutcher, prepared a scientific field report about the
Nazi execution camps. [proving] that even if all of the Nazi camps had
been operating at full capacity, the total number of victims would not
have exceeded a hundred thousand, and certainly could not have reached
the one million mark.


Leutcher's report was prepared in 1988 to save an American intellectual
from imprisonment for challenging this mendacious legend.
French intellectual Roger Garaudi. referred to this report in his book that
enraged international Zionism and revealed the ugly face of western
democracies.


The Al-Ahram Al-Arabi newspaper [an Egyptian weekly] published this
scientific report which serves as an unprecedented historical document
and a death sentence to the bogus execution legends.

Leutcher's report. uses forensic evidence to refute the superstition of gas
chambers for Jews in the Nazi era. The story of this report begins in
January 1988, when internationally renowned lawyer Dr. Robert Faurisson,
was in Toronto, Canada, assisting in the defense of Ernst Zuendel. A
Canadian citizen of German origin, Mr. Zuendel was accused of distributing
fake information after publishing a book titled Were Six Million Really
Killed? Zuendel discussed the widespread claim that the Nazis killed six
million Jews during WWII, in gas chambers with, Hydrogen Cyanide the
'Zyklon B Gas...'


Faurisson says, 'I started talking to Fred Leutcher, an expert in the
design of execution devices...He amazed me with the proficiency of his
answers and his skill in explaining all the details of the process of executing
by gas. He explained the extreme danger of using Hydrogen Cyanide in
executions. This gas was first used in executions in the US in 1942, but there
were still many problems in designing gas chambers. in 1988, including
problems of gas leakage. I noticed Leutcher did not doubt the traditional
claim regarding the Jewish Holocaust.'


Faurisson added: '.Zuendel decided to ask Leutcher to prepare a scientific
perspective regarding the claims of gas chambers in Auschwitz, Birkenau
and Majdanek.'

Leutcher accepted the assignment. On February 25, 1988, Fred Leutcher and
his wife Caroline, along with the draftsman Howard Miller, cinematographer
Jurgen Neumann, and Polish interpreter Theodor Rudolph flew to Poland and
returned 8 days later.

On his return, Leutcher began writing a report that consisted of 192 pages,
including appendices. His conclusions were clear: there is strong evidence
that there were no gas chambers for executions in Auschwitz, Birkenau or
Majdanek. The places that were claimed to be execution chambers could
not have been used back then, cannot be used in the present, and cannot
even conceivably be used as chambers for executions by gas."

Faurisson says that on April 20-21, 1988, Fred Leutcher took the witness
stand at the Toronto court and began by answering the questions of the
defense... Afterwards, the prosecutor John Pearson, questioned Leutcher.
Another prosecutor assisted him and the two of them consulted constantly
with Jewish advisors sitting behind them...

All present, regardless of their personal view on the subject, knew [that]
they were participating in a historic event - the end of the legend of gas
chambers..

Faurisson says: "I think I was the first to point out that any research of
the German gas chambers using Zyklon B, should start with the study
of American gas chambers.. The theory of executions can only be proven
true or false by investigating the claim that Auschwitz was a death-factory.

The investigations held by the 'Correction Movement' proved those places
claimed to have been gas chambers, could not have been used for that
purpose... Those rooms. claimed to be gas chambers, were in reality,
warehouses for corpses...

It was imperative to find an expert of American gas chambers..Fred
Leutcher was that expert. He conducted the investigation, wrote the
report, and signed it in Canadian court. When I asked him if he was
afraid of dangerous consequences, he answered: 'the truth is the truth.'

After reading his report, the British historian David Irving, said that
this document would become an obligatory source for any historian
writing about WWII...'

It is possible that Ernst Zuendel will again be jailed for his research and
beliefs or that they will threaten to deport him. Anything can happen when
there is a cultural crisis and re-arrangement of historical notions to that
extent. His Correction Movement is the greatest cultural adventure of the
end of this century. Whatever happens, Ernst Zuendel is the victor.He is a
peaceful warrior who achieved his victory using his brains and convictions.

The strange thing is that on May 11, 1988, the jury decided to convict
Zuendel of publishing wrong information about the Holocaust. He was
sentenced to 9 months imprisonment, but was bailed out after signing
an obligation not to write or talk about the Holocaust until the end of the
appeals process. Thus, Zuendel joined truth facing the powers
of ignorance and lies."

My son had entered data in Family Tree for a large family sub group

When I merged the data that he sent me on the Gedcom disk, I found to
my surprise that there was no provision for identifying "duplicate
records" and since he had not extracted just some of the records I
wound up with many people appearing twice in my combined family file.
It then became necessary to check manually for duplicates and
determine which one was correctly "linked" and/or had the more

I understand that the FTJP, neccessarily has no provision for

Dear Genners,
I am totally confused. I have been trying to search the SS Death
Records, which I accessed through familytreemaker.com. At first I
entered a name of a person whom I later realized probably never had a
SS#. However, when I entered the name of a cousin, born in 1941 who died
in 1989, I should get a return, should I not? Is there some restriction
I am unaware of. I know that someone out there knows what's wrong. I
could use some help.
As always, thanks for all the wonderful information this group provides.
