I identified the German uniforms. Should I have commented that the victim in the photo was bald or not like you did, instead? :lol:

Glad you don't practice law here... you'd be looking for a job elsewhere.

Anyone who states that these are Polish uniforms has no credibility. polish officers wore a totally different style of cap than that. Their shoulder-boards, IIRC were different.

The CODOH crowd is upset about this picture:

https://forum.codoh.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=3309&p=85375#p85375





There is a suggestion that the photo is faked, with the implication being that the head and arm added later to give the false impression that this man died trying to dig out from a burning barn.

However, if you look closely you can see that the shirt matches the color of the dirt the man is lying in, that the arm is covered in dirt and that there is detritus in the man's hair. Also, the man is lying in a depression, the boards are splintered and conform to the corpse and that the dirt looks displaced by the man's body.

All of this was pointed out by a certain "Metal Murphy" which, for a denier, seems like not such a bad fellow.

:D

It looks like a photo of the Gardegelen massacre. Blatman has a long section of his book on the death marches on the incident, if I am remembering the photo correctly. This massacre took place after the Final Solution had been halted.
"World peace is certainly an ideal worth striving for; in Hitler's opinion it will be realizable only when one power, the racially best one, has attained complete and uncontested supremacy. That can then provide a sort of world police, seeing to it at the same time that the most valuable race is guaranteed the necessary living space. And if no other way is open to them, the lower races will have to restrict themselves accordingly."

That's the background CODOH has, naturally they doubt it actually happened. If it did it wasn't as bad as reported by "court historians." There's a lot of talk the whole thing was staged.

Blatman covers the massacre in depth. I am guessing they have voluminous sources from which they've 1) reconstructed the events in Gardegelen and 2) laid out how, when, why, and by whom the photo was doctored. Right?

Also, there are many photos of the massacre (Google: "gardelegen massacre" in Google images and they come up). They explained the rest of the photos in this scenario, each and every one?

(sorry for the typo, it's Gardelegen)

This sent me off on a wild tangent but that happens to me a lot.

Here is a video, no sound:

https://archive.org/details/ADC-4209a

You can see a different angle of the man laying on the ground.

Most of the links on the CODOH thread are dead links.

The active one includes FG's website:

https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2010/04/25/letter-from-american-soldier-describes-gardelegen-massacre-on-april-13-1945/

Most of the pictures they link to are there. They also include a YouTube video.

And this, this is one I've seen before:



These massacres are well documented. The Germans had a knack for locking people in structures, setting it on fire and then shooting anyone who tried to escape, Jewish and non-Jewish.

I found it amusing that the CODOH crowd got their knickers in a bunch over a series of photographs.

Blatman's reconstruction is really worth reading. In fact, it's kind of, er, revisionist, in the real sense of the word.

I thought those looked like hanging/sliding doors. Seems that's correct(?) and they are shown in this ytube (I think it's the same one you linked to) and the body in the depression under one of them at 2:02.

I do appreciate his sympathy, but isn't it about time that guy actually does something?

Here's another one:



The caption on it says:
The bodies of Jewish people are piled up in a huge grave after a mass execution in the Blezec extermination camp in Belzec, Poland in 1942.


https://www.google.com/amp/www.nydailynews.com/amp/news/remembering-holocaust-gallery-1.2957412

Anyone know if that's the case? It doesn't look like it fits and I don't think I've ever seen that picture connected to Belzec.

Gettyimages:

http://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/mass-execution-in-the-concentration-camp-belzec-poland-news-photo/53313247?#holocaust-mass-execution-in-the-concentration-camp-belzec-poland-picture-id53313247

It identifies it from January 1st, 1942, that predates the death camp. Probably Red Army soldiers.

If someone has something that contradicts that let me know.

I've seen it in two places:

The CODOH crowd loves SNOPES for finding a forged picture!!!!!

I’ve never seen the miniseries they are discussing but anyone can see it’s a screen capture. Also, if genuine the photographer would need to be hip deep in bodies to pull off that shot.

"Also, if genuine the photographer would need to be hip deep in bodies to pull off that shot." //// How's that? Shot has "an angle" on it...........looks like what would be taken if standing on the edge of a pit.....or slightly uphill on the pit as is the guard shown?

Or.......taken at ground level kneeling down with a "short" lens that gives a straight on head shot, close focus, and a downward looking foreground.

aka.........you can do almost anything with the right lens.
