Note from Mohammed von Goldstein, Historian--Jews consistently call for the removal of Christian symbols from Auschwitz even though statistics at Auschwitz demonstrate that at least 80% of the labor at that work camp were non-Jews--e.g., Christians and Moslems--yet the Jews are only interested in Jewish-oriented deaths and not in the others. Very few persons who survived Auschwitz discuss the gassing of Jews or others there, except for the Jews who were interrogated for the Nuremberg Show Trial in 1947. In addition, the Red Cross was on-site at Auschwitz for all three years in question and reported no gassings at all occuring. This is embarrassing to the Simon Wiesenthal Center. At Nuremberg, the figure of 4.5 million Jews gassed at Auschwitz was offered based not on facts but on a mathematical formula--e.g., if the ovens worked full time 24 hours per day, 4.5 million could have been consumed, and, therefore, we know it happened. This was a specious argument, and recently the real figures of deaths at Auschwitz were released in Moscow to the chagrin of the ADL and Wiesenthal Trotskyite Factionalists. In addition, the same types of testimony given by Jews about Germans gassing people at the work camps were given by Polish testimonials concerning the Germans lining up the Polish officers at Katyn Forest and killing them; however, no German EVER killed a Polish Officer at Katyn, because the Russians (who took testimonies for BOTH Katyn Forest and Auschwitz for use at Nuremberg) admitted killing all of the Polish Officers at the Katyn Forest. So, since probable lies were admitted as testimony concerning the Katyn Forest Massacre of 40,000 Poles by Germans when all along the Russians knew Russian Jews did this, then all of the testimony at Nuremberg is called into question, because all of it came from Russian interrogators who let those testifying know that there were certain things they wanted to hear or else. Rudolf Hess and others were tortured to make them submit "properly approved" testimony at Nuremberg.
With this background of historical hucksterism by the Nuremberg authorities in mind, the Jews in the story below look very foolish. Read this Associated Press Article illustrating the one-way street of the Jewish focus concerning World War Two which shows a one-way-mirror-vision and a highly racist, anti-Christian bias. After all, only 73,000 deaths were really recorded at Auschwitz and of those we can suspect that 80% or 53,400 were Christians and only 19,600 were Jews. Is this attitude Jewish chutzpah, or what? Without the ADL and Simon Wiesenthal Center goons running around Europe enforcing anti-freedom-of-speech laws about the holocaust, would this not be an open and shut affair in that the Jews are wrong about Auschwitz, their Holy of Holies in the Holocaust Affairs fo this World? Keep in mind that the Holocaust is a very productive industry for the Jewish People. Many museums, magazines, and social programs featuring Holocaust memorabilia and lectures, all of it based on very little forensic evidence or even photographs, few of which are available and all of which are specious in interpretation and shown over and over again on Jewish-owned networks and movie studio films.

PRESENTING THE ARTICLE IN QUESTION SHOWING JEWISH ANTI-CHRISTIAN BEHAVIOR ATTITUDES
New Crosses at Auschwitz Anger Jews
Poland Will Not Take A Stand
Tuesday, August 4, 1998, The Associated Press
top of page
WARSAW, Poland-New crosses erected outside Auschwitz have deepened the dispute over religious symbols at the infamous Nazi death camp, but Poland's government said Monday it has no intention of getting caught up in the controversy.
In the last week, Roman Catholics, many of whom listen to a conservative radio station, have erected 50 smaller crosses around a 26-foot-tall cross put up a decade ago. And over the weekend, a nationalist movement in Silesia erected another cross, this one 10 feet tall.
The crosses have angered Jewish organizations, who want them removed. But Foreign Minister Bronislaw Geremek said Monday the government would leave the matter to proper authorities, meaning the Roman Catholic church in Poland. "The Polish government hopes that the cross in Poland will always be a uniting symbol and will not be used for political manifestations," he said.
Local Archbishop Damian Zimon said placing more crosses at Auschwitz was "unnecessary manipulation." But he didn't say if the church would remove them.
Church officials say they have no plans to make any decision on the matter in the near future.
Israel's Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial on Sunday called the crosses a provocation that should be removed, warning they "may prevent further dialogue between the sides about the future of the site."
The dispute over crosses near the camp began in 1988, when the largest one was erected to commemorate a 1979 Mass in the area celebrated by Pope John Paul II, who is Polish. It is outside Auschwitz, on neighboring land that used to be a Carmelite cloister.
Jewish organizations complain that the cross, which is visible from the former death camp, violates the memory of Jews who died at Auschwitz.
Many Poles consider the large cross a symbol of the nation's martyrdom under German occupation.
Mohammed von Goldstein's Comment: Since Poles consider the large cross a symbol of the national martydom under German occupation, is the Jewish attitude not rather "insensitive" to Polish national feelings and symbols? And whose feelings are better suited in a sanctuary which is within Polish national territory and were any victims were only 20% Jewish and certainly far less than indicated at the Nuremberg Testimonial Frauds? And even today, the numbers on the plaque at Auschwitz says only 1.1 million instead of 4.5 million, a recovery of 3.3 million who did NOT die there as Nuremberg indicated, and going down. Someday soon, the real figure of only 73,000 may be on that plaque if "honesty in history" and no blink allegiance to Post-War Propaganda in the days following World War Two are taken into account.

In Effort to Keep Auschwitz-Birkenau as a Jewish Holocaust Exclusive
Even Though It Is Quite Possible that More Poles, Hungarians, Russians, and Others Died There than Jews
top of page
Kazimierz Switon, a veteran anti-communist and radical Roman Catholic with a history of anti-establishment gestures, has threatened to set himself on fire if the Polish government tries to remove him and the crosses from the sensitive site.
>From the bedraggled tent that is home to his campaign he has managed to give the government an intractable problem, the latest to dog attempts to better Poland's image abroad and improve relations between the country and Jewish groups.
``The conflict strikes a blow at Poland's interests and must be resolved as swiftly as possible,'' prime ministerial adviser Agnieszka Magdziak-Miszewska told the Catholic news agency. ``We are beginning to be perceived as anarchistic xenophobes ruled by our emotions,'' she added.
But even if the government quickly secures an eviction order against Switon, the affair has stalled efforts to put the management of the Auschwitz-Birkenau complex on a firm footing and made further conflict over the tragic site inevitable.
DO'S AND DONT'S AT AUSCHWITZ
At issue is the definition of what activity is appropriate at a place where Nazi forces occupying Poland murdered up to 1.5 million people, 90 percent of them Jews, in World War II. Papal intervention was needed to resolve a dispute over the presence of a Carmelite convent, which was moved out, and a crisis erupted over plans to put a supermarket near the site.
The presence of any religious symbols at the largest graveyard of European Jewry has been a particular irritant since Jewish groups regard them as a violation of the commemorative character and dignity of the complex.
Poland's center-right government scored a minor triumph in December when it removed unauthorized Stars of David and crosses from the dumping ground for human ashes at Birkenau.
A discreet deal between the government and an international Jewish coalition to remove a large cross under which Polish-born Pope John Paul prayed in 1979 came unstuck when press attention caused a nationalist uproar.
Switon's campaign to protect that and other crosses is backed by an informal alliance of right-wing clergy, radical worker groups, anti-Semitic skinheads and nationalists.
It received initial support from Polish Catholics with memories of Communist prohibitions on crosses in public places and from patriots determined that national suffering at Auschwitz, where thousands of Poles died, not be forgotten.
But Switon's support has ebbed since bishops and the government took the compromise position that the papal cross should remain and all new crosses be removed.
A U.S-led international Jewish coalition, which has broken off dialogue with Poland until the new crosses are taken down, is unlikely to accept the papal cross as a permanent presence. That issue, the presence of a church in an old Nazi building near Birkenau and a recent decision to allow a parking lot and shop near Auschwitz are the next obstacles to be negotiated.
``The cross is a major problem,'' said Ralph Grunewald of the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington. ``I don't know the answer but the cross, all religious symbols, all post-period elements should be the subject of behind- the-scene discussion.''
``We have to remove all the crosses that were put up to provoke the Jewish community,'' said presidential advisor Marek Siwiec, ``But I don't see any chance to have a serious and moderate discussion about the papal cross at the moment.''
POLISH DESIRE FOR DIALOGUE
Polish officials are irritated that the Switon affair has stymied efforts to sign a deal that would take the future of Auschwitz-Birkenau out of the political arena. Mindful of its campaign to join NATO and the European Union and anxious to expiate the guilt of a 1946 pogrom and an anti-Semitic campaign in 1968, authorities have been working to improve ties with Israel and the Jewish diaspora.
President Alexander Kwasniewski proposed a renovation, preservation and education program in 1996 and the state began work on costly local improvement schemes that also benefited the adjacent run-down town of Oswiecim. But a grander plan for the bleak sites in southwestern Poland, and international funding, are on hold.
The ambitious plan includes linking Auschwitz more directly to Birkenau, two miles away. Birkenau, built explicitly as an extermination center and where most Jews died, is harder to get to and visited less frequently.
A new walkway could join the two sites, passing by the ``Judenrampe,'' the railway siding where most of the Jews arriving from across Europe were offloaded, which is now neglected and overgrown with weeds. The tracks directly into Birkenau, familiar from photographs, were built in 1944 for Hungarian Jewish transports in the last phase of the extermination campaign.
``No. 1 is to preserve the site,'' said Miles Lerman, chairman of the U.S. Holocaust Museum Council. ``We're talking about preserving barbed wire, concrete, the crematories.''
A new visitors' center, educational efforts, a better defined protection zone, ground rules for what commercial activity is permissible nearby and an internationally accountable management board are also on the agenda.
Despite the frosty climate the government has high hopes for a new law taking all Nazi German camps on Polish territory out of local authority control, meeting objections that they are sometimes managed parochially. The law will cover camps where Polish political prisoners died and where Hitler's troops implemented the ``Final Solution,'' wiping out most of Poland's pre-war 3.3 million Jewish population.
``I hope this law will be accepted by the main Jewish circles because its absence was previously a barrier to creating dialogue,'' said Agnieszka Magdziak-Miszewska.
But officials accept that, despite good will and improving relations, Polish- Jewish dialogue is still vulnerable.
``We have to live with the fact that protests and controversies will be with us for a long time,'' said Stanislaw Krajewski, a leader of Poland's tiny Jewish community.
