Grafeneck Gas chamber

GRAFENECK GAS CHAMBER AT GRAFENECK CASTLE

Grafeneck Castle

The former medieval castle Grafeneck was built on a hill near Marbach.
On 24 May 1939, members of Aktion T4 visited the buildings in order to find out if it could be used for their killing programme. On 14 OctoberGrafeneck Castle was duly confiscated. Between 10 and 15 manual labourers from nearby villages started to convert the castle into a killing centre.

300 m away from the castle several barracks were built, fenced in with a hoarding up to 4 m high. On the first floor of the castle the following facilities were installed: accomodations and offices for the doctors, a registry office, a police office, the office for the comfort letters and others. On the second floor, small living- and sleeping rooms for the personnel were installed. The main building of the killing facility was a barrack (68 m long and 7 m wide), which included several rooms. In one of them 100 beds were placed, covered with straw-bags. Three big buses for transportation of the victims and an ambulance car stood in a wooden garage. Two mobile cremation ovens were located in another wooden barrack. Because of the immense heat, generated by the round-the-clock cremation, the roof of the barrack was removed and after a short time the surrounding trees even blackened. The gas chamber, resembling a shower bath, could hold 75 persons.
A former horse stable (round, and 15 m in diameter) probably served as storage room for the corpses. At the bottom of the hill, at the access road, a high hoarding and a guardhouse were built. Fences with barbed wire surrounded the whole castle whilst armed guards with dogs patrolled these perimeters.

In mid-November 1939, SS men, typists and other personnel arrived and were supplemented during early January 1940 by approximately 25 nurses, some being male. In mid-January the cremation ovens were delivered. On 18 January 1940 the first transport of 25 handicapped men arrived fromEglfing-Haar near Munich, managed by the Grafeneck chief Dr Horst Schumann. He joined T4 since early October 1939, after a meeting with Viktor Brack in Hitler‘s chancellery. In early summer of 1940 he was ordered to the Sonnenstein euthanasia centre. Successors in Grafeneck: Dr Ernst Baumhardt and finally Dr Günther Hennecke.
Chief of administration became Christian Wirth, a detective superintendent and SS-Obersturmführer. He supervised the first gassings. Later he became inspector of all Aktion Reinhard extermination camps.

The killing continued until 13 December 1940. Then Grafeneck was no longer part of the euthanasia programme because, according to the plan, all handicapped persons from the Grafeneck operational area had been killed. Some of the personnel went on holiday while some were ordered to theHadamar euthanasia centre. A few remained at the castle to cover up all tracks of the actions that happened there.
10,824 victims were gassed and cremated at this facility.

zyklon B

WHAT IS ZYKLON B?

zyklonb

Zyklon B (German pronunciation: [tsykloːn ˈbeː]; also spelled Cyclon B or Cyclone B) was the trade name of a cyanide-based pesticideinvented in the early 1920s, and manufactured by German chemical conglomerate IG Farben. Zyklon B consisted of hydrogen cyanide(prussic acid), a stabilizer, a warning odorant (ethyl bromoacetate), and one of several adsorbents. Zyklon A was a previously produced liquid pesticide, which released hydrogen cyanide in a chemical reaction with water. After the invention of Zyklon B, Zyklon A production ceased.

The product is infamous for its use by Nazi Germany to murder an estimated 1.2 million people, including approximately 960,000 Jews, ingas chambers installed in several extermination camps during the Holocaust. One of the co-inventors of Zyklon B, chemist and businessman Bruno Tesch, was executed by the British in 1946 for his role in this operation.

The containers above hold Zyklon-B pellets (hydrocyanic acid) that vaporize when exposed to air. Originally intended for commercial use as a disinfectant and an insecticide, the Nazis discovered through experimentation the gas could be used to kill humans.

The brand of Zyklon-B used by the Nazis contained substances which gave the pellets a blue appearance and left blue stains inside gas chambers which can still be seen today in chambers that were left intact.

During the killing process, prisoners at Auschwitz and other killing centers were forced into the air-tight chambers that had been disguised by the Nazis to look like shower rooms. The Zyklon pellets were then dumped into the chambers via special air shafts or openings in the ceiling.

The pellets would then vaporize, giving off a noticeable bitter almond odor. Upon being breathed in, the vapors combined with red blood cells, depriving the human body of vital oxygen, causing unconsciousness, and then death through oxygen starvation.

Josef Rudolf Mengele (German: [ˈjoːzɛf ˈʁuːdɔlf ˈmɛŋələ] ( listen); 16 March 1911 – 7 February 1979) was a German SS officer and a physician in the Nazi concentration camp Auschwitz. He earned doctorates in anthropology from Munich University and in medicine from Frankfurt University. He initially gained notoriety for being one of the SS physicians who supervised the selection of arriving transports of prisoners, determining who was to be killed and who was to become a forced laborer, but is far more infamous for performing human experiments on camp inmates, including children, for which Mengele was called the “Angel of Death”.

In 1940, he was placed in the reserve medical corps, after which he served with the 5th SS Panzergrenadier Division Wiking in the Eastern Front. In 1942, he was wounded at the Soviet front and was pronounced medically unfit for combat. He was then promoted to the rank ofSS-Hauptsturmführer (Captain) for saving the lives of three German soldiers. He survived the war and, after a period of living incognito in Germany, he fled to South America, where he evaded capture for the rest of his life, despite being hunted as a Nazi war criminal.

RAPE , SEXUAL ASSAULT AND ABUSE BEHIND BARS………..BE WARNED, “NOT NICE”

THE HARSH REALITY OF WHAT CAN AND OFTEN DOES HAPPEN TO YOU BEHIND BARS ….

HERE ARE MORE INTERACTIVE AND CERTAINLY EDUCATIONAL INSIGHT DOCUMENTARY FOOTAGE (PARTS 1-7)  OF SEXUAL ABUSE , ASSAULTS AND RAPE THAT GOES ON BEHIND BARS IN MANY USA (AND ALSO HERE IN THE UK)  JAILS .

IF EASILY OFFENDED , DISTURBED, OR OF A SENSITIVE NATURE …. THEN BEST TO NOT WATCH THESE VIDEOS

 FROM WIKIPEDIA

Prison rape refers to rape in prison. It has come into common usage to refer to rape of inmates by other inmates, and less commonly to the rape of inmates by staff, or the rape of staff by inmates. Rape of corrections officers by inmates almost exclusively occur in the shower rooms.[citation needed] Rape committed in prison is thought to be more about power and control than sex. The experience of rape can be psychologically worse than regular violence, and inmates may use rape to dominate other inmates.[citation needed]

In 2001, Human Rights Watch estimated that at least 140,000 inmates in the United States had been raped while incarcerated, and there is a significant variation in the rates of prison rape by race.Just Detention International[1] estimate that young men are five times more likely to be attacked and that the prison rape victims are ten times more likely to contract a deadly sexually transmitted disease. In contrast to these high figures, a meta-analysis published in 2004 found a prevalence rate of 1.91% with a 95% confidence interval between 1.37–2.46%.[2] Applying that 1.91% figure to the nearly 2.3 million inmates currently incarcerated in prisons and jails in the United States[3] suggests that raped inmates number 43,800.

Smile stupid, you’re on CCTV: West Midlands Police release photos of looters… now help us identify them

CCTV images of looters who went on the rampage in Birmingham and Liverpool on Monday have been published by detectives.

Police are trying to trace the culprits who caused extensive damage in the city and looted dozens of shops.

The gallery of suspects has been posted on the web by West Midlands police who are urging anyone who recognises those snapped to call them on 0800 096 0095.

They are also appealing for anyone with photos or video of the disorder to email them attellus@west-midlands.pnn.police.uk

So far the force has made 330 arrests since Monday, including a 14-year-old Wolverhampton girl who was escorted to a local police station by an uncle who suspected her of coming home with stolen clothing.

Magistrates in Solihull have been working through the night to hear cases from defendants charged over the riots, which spread to the UK’s second city after a weekend of violence in London.

A total of 26 cases were heard between 7.30pm until 6am with charges ranging from burglary, arson, theft and violent disorder.

Now 20 of those are now in prison having either been sentenced or pending follow-up court appearances.

West Midlands Police Chief Constable Chris Sims, said: ‘We promised swift, decisive action against anyone suspected of causing trouble on our streets – and thanks to our colleagues at the courts we’re delivering on that promise.

‘More people suspected of being involved in disorder will appear before magistrates today as both Sandwell and Wolverhampton have court sittings dedicated to dealing with these prisoners.

‘We will not tolerate violent behaviour in the West Midlands and will arrest anyone who commit acts of violence or criminality…offenders can expect to be put before the courts and will face the full force of the law.’

Police chiefs confirmed that last night passed off peacefully in Birmingham.

Major roads into the city centre were closed from 9pm as a precaution but re-opened at 1.30am.

Chief Superintendent Phil Kay said: ‘Last night we worked closely with the communities of the West Midlands to appeal for calm and it is pleasing to see that these appeals were listened to and the streets remained quiet and peaceful.

‘Our focus was on maintaining a high visibility presence throughout the night and early hours, which helped prevent any further disorder.

‘We have seen the benefits of social media being used responsibly to send positive messages about the situation in the West Midlands and to dispel malicious rumour and innuendo. We would like to thank the community for their ongoing support.’

Some of the looters covered their faces, but police hope they could still be identifiedSome of the looters covered their faces, but police hope they could still be identified

They are hoping to be able to bring offenders to justice and want the public to email in names of anyone they recognise using disorderinvestigation@merseyside.police.uk or calling 0151 709 601.

Assistant Chief Constable, Andy Ward, said: ‘The public have an important part to play and I would urge everyone to look at the images in the media and tell us who these offenders are and where we can find them so they can be brought to justice.’

In Cambridge, police want to identify after a copycat riot left police officers injured during a night of violence.

Police clashed with a 40-strong gang of yobs as they tried to attack and loot The Grafton shopping centre on Tuesday night.

Two police officers were injured as hooded louts in their late teens and early 20s hurled missiles and smashed a window in skirmishes on Midsummer Common at around 11.35pm.

Det Chief Insp Chris Mead, of Cambridgeshire Constabulary, released CCTV images of nine of the men police want to speak to following the disturbances.

‘We are keen to hear from anyone who recognises these people. I would also urge the people who are pictured to contact police themselves.’

A police spokeswoman said three teenagers and two men were arrested for violent disorder as police foiled the gang’s attempts to lay siege to the shopping centre.
