In what is unquestionably a highly embarrassing concession, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM) has finally admitted that the Majdanek camp in Poland was not an “extermination camp” at all but merely a “storage depot” and Jewish “labor camp”—exactly as Revisionists have always said.
The latest admission—published on theUSHMM’s official website here—says that
“Though many scholars have traditionally counted the Majdanek camp as a sixth killing center, recent research had shed more light on the functions and operations at Lublin/Majdanek. Within the framework of Operation Reinhard, Majdanek primarily served to concentrate Jews whom the Germans spared temporarily for forced labor.” (Killing Centers: An Overview". encyclopedia.ushmm.org).
Of course, this admission flies in the face of decades of claims that Majdanek was a “mass extermination center” complete with “gas chambers” whose only purpose was a “killing center.”
Recognizing the significance of this admission, the USHM goes on to add by way of explanation that that the camp
“occasionally functioned as a killing site to murder victims who could not be killed at the Operation Reinhard killing centers: Belzec, Sobibor, and Treblinka II. It also contained a storage depot for property and valuables taken from the Jewish victims at the killing centers.”
I detailed the absurdities and lies of theMajdanek camp in Chapter 16 of The Six Million: Fact or Fiction.
These outrageous claims included:
- That the prisoners were showered before being gassed;
- That prisoners were gassed with carbon dioxide;
- That gas chambers had glass windows . . .
and many more.
It is now clear that the weight of logic and truth has finally forced the Holocaust Storytellers to back down from this, one of the most outrageous and easily disproved lies—and admit that Majdanek was, as was obvious from the very beginning, just a transit and storage camp which also provided labor for the nearby Steyr-Daimler-Puch weapons and munitions factory, among others.
