Josef Stalin, it turns out, was a historical revisionist. When Josef Stalin wanted someone erased from history, he not only killed him and his family, he also had them immediately removed from all official photographs, thus revising history as he saw fit. When the Soviets needed a scapegoat for the Katyn Forest massacre—in which Soviet troops shot scores of Polish officers in the back of the head and buried them in the woods—Stalin made sure his Bolshevik spinmeisters crafted an elaborate tale about Katyn being a Nazi atrocity.
And so too, when the Red Amry rolled into Germany and came across labor/prison camps the Germans had abandoned late in the war—filled with starving, sick and dying prisoners—Stalin did not miss an opportunity to make wild claims about a Nazi genocide taking place across Europe.
The Majdanek Camp in Lubiln, Poland, is a case in point. This camp was the first to be occupied by Allied forces, in this instance the Soviet Red Army. (I avoid the word “liberated,” because nobody overrun by the Red Army was liberated until the Soviet Union finally collapsed in 1991.) As a result, the Majdanek camp was the earliest focus of Soviet anti-German atrocity propaganda. Already by 1944, a Soviet commission was claiming—while the war was still raging—that as many as 1.5 million prisoners had been executed by the Germans in homicidal gas chambers in the Majdanek camp.
In subsequent decades, however, even mainstream historians agreed that the number of Jews and Poles gassed at Auschwitz was much lower; more like 360,000, or maybe only 235,000.
While it’s nice that mainstream scholars agree that all of the above figures assigned for the victims of Majdanek are preposterous, they still insist that at least 78,000 inmates died in that camp, among them some 60,000 Jews, some of which are said to have died in homicidal gas chambers.
And that is the end of the story.
Or is it?
Just recently, highly respected Revisionist scholars Carlo Mattogno and Jürgen Graf updated and revised their amazing treatise Concentration Camp Majdanek: A Historical & Technical Study. In this book, Graf and Mattogno make the astounding claim that there is not a shred of evidence to prove than even one prisoner was executed in a homicidal gas chamber at Majdanek, and that in reality this camp’s death toll is considerably lower than 78,000.
The claims they made in the first edition of this book caused a firestorm in Holocaust studies. A team of five mainstream historians gathered to publish a book in 2011 that would challenge Graf and Mattogno. They did so, claiming victory over the “evil” forces of “holocaust denial.”
However, the story is still not finished.
Graf and Mattogno have responded. Forcefully.
This updated and revised edition of Concentration Camp Majdanek refutes the mainstream version of events at the camp and in return offers a completely different reality—one based upon fact and not wishful thinking or discredited sources.
So, is it possible that not even one prisoner was gassed at this infamous “death camp” Majdanek—a camp that has been used again and again as an example of Nazi brutality and inhumanity?
