Darkmaster post[edit]

The HD section is a mess...[edit]

... written by someone who is as informed about the Holocaust as Styx.

For example, the claim is made: "He insists that Zyklon B was a mostly harmless delousing agent, and Auschwitz was burning through so much of the stuff mostly trying to keep lice from spreading the typhus epidemic brought about by Allied firebombing.[20] This is false"

Actually most of Zyklon B was used for delousing purposes, and only a small amount was used to kill hundreds of thousands Jews because it doesn't take much to kill people.


"By far the greater part (over 95 percent) was destined for delousing (effects and buildings) while only a very small part (less than 5 percent) had been used for homicidal gassings."

Another claim: "In the same vein, he supposes the "shower" of Auschwitz to have been an actual shower. The "showers" were, in fact, disguised gas chambers."

That's just meaningless gobbledygook though. Auschwitz had lots of real showers and lots of gas chambers disguised as showers, one doesn't exclude the other.

Fighting ignorance with more ignorance is not the way. 2001:16B8:24E4:F400:F912:C1D3:E2BF:81DB (talk) 13:12, 24 January 2021 (UTC)

If you wish to rewrite the section to be more accurate, it would be welcome. Thank you for providing reputable sources. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 13:23, 24 January 2021 (UTC)
i learned that narrative about zyklon B in school from reading some book by ellie wiessel. what do you mean its false? That's what zyklon b was invented for. lice. they used it on the prisoners when they ran out of food. why is this even an argument in this page? — Unsigned, by: / talk
You must understand saying Zyclon B was invented for killing Lice is evil and anti-sematic no matter the context. Because after all there has never been an invention created for benign purposes and later repurposed for ill intent. That has obviously never happened. Alsoa reminder that the clip being used is over 9 years old and out of context.2600:1702:2A00:B3F0:D04D:7C50:7E33:C365 (talk) 17:00, 17 February 2021 (UTC)
