Holocaust – the comments

Hundreds of comments have been posted on General-History following publication last year of the article on The Holocaust. Some comments are learnéd, some are not. Many are openly anti-Semitic. A few show sympathy with the victims. Some question the figures quoted. Anyone can find out the figures for themselves simply by making enquiries in any office of records in any of the countries I am about to list, or simply asking for statistics in Tel Aviv. For those commentarists who claim the Holocaust did not actually happen one feels sorry for those who must endure life near them.

Around one million more than the total mentioned here died in ghettoes from hunger, disease and dehydration. Another million were shot by mobile death squads (Einsatzgruppen). In the Ukraine alone official figures show that 23,000 Jews were shot directly over pits dug by them at Kamianets Podilskyi; another 30,000 at Babyi Iar. For those who patronize Dean Swift in comments, one can only quote the old truth – “Beware ye who patronize, for ye shall be patronized!”

Official figures calculated to the nearest zero:

Soviet Union             750,000

Estonia                       26,000

Latvia                         70,000

Lithuania                   104,000

Poland                    2,600,000

Romania                   750,000

Bulgaria                      40,000

Greece                       60,000

Yugoslavia                  58,000

Hungary                    200,000

Czechoslovakia            60,000

Norway                        1,000

Denmark                         100

Austria                        60,000

Italy                              9,000

Germany                    180,000

Netherlands                104,000

Belgium                       28,000

Luxembourg                  3,000

France                         65,000

My total:-             5,168,100
