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.

African-American cop infiltrates the KKK

Ron Stallworth speaks about his experience with the Klansmen

In the late 1970s, the Ku Klux Klan was expanding in Colorado.  Ron Stallworth was an undercover cop who tried to infiltrate the group.  He disguised himself as a bigot and signed up with a local KKK chapter.

He began by answering a newspaper ad by phone and used what he said were all the buzzwords the Klansmen liked to hear.  They liked Stallworth, asked him to join.  Time went by and he became intimately involved with the group.  He even exchanged numerous phone calls with Klan leader David Duke, who would often mock or insult minorities on the phone with Stallworth.

He was considered one of the KKK’s most loyal members.  So one day, the group even asked him to be the leader of their local chapter in Colorado Springs.  But there was one huge hurdle Stallworth had to overcome during his work, he’s black.

Former police officer and card-carrying member of the Ku Klux Klan, Ron Stallworth joined Dan Abrams to talk about his extraordinary experience.

To read an excerpt from their conversation, continue to the text below. To watch the video, click on the “Launch” button to the right.

DAN ABRAMS, HOST, ‘ABRAMS REPORT’:  How does being black play into your undercover work?

RON STALLWORTH, WENT UNDERCOVER WITH THE KKK:  Well, obviously, it was an obstacle.  When this whole investigation started, I honestly didn’t think it was going to go very far.

I answered this ad in the classifieds.  It said, “Ku Klux Klan:  For information, call.”  And then there was a phone number.

And since I was in intelligence and investigator for the Colorado Springs Police Department, I called the number and didn’t think it was going to lead anywhere.  And lo and behold, another guy answered the phone and told me that he was starting a chapter in Colorado Springs and wanted to know if I was interested.  And I said, “Yes.”  I then spoke with him about why I wanted to join.

ABRAMS:  What did you say?  What would you say to him?

STALLWORTH:  I told him I was a pure Aryan, white man, which in and of itself is a joke.  But I said I was a pure Aryan, white-blooded American male, that I had been the victim of racial prejudice because of the dominance of blacks, Jews, and Mexicans, and other minorities, except I used the racial terms that they liked to use referring to those groups.

ABRAMS:  Right.

STALLWORTH:  And I even went so far as to tell them that part of the reason why I wanted to join was I had found out that a sister of mine had dated a black guy.  And that, to me, was just the ultimate offense.  And he couldn’t believe that.

And so he said I was just the type of individual that they were looking for.  They were interested in expanding and asked me if I wanted to join.  And I said, “Sure,” gave him my real name, and made arrangements to meet with him.

It turned out he was a soldier in the Army, stationed in Fort Carson, Colorado.  And I arranged to meet with him.  I gave him a physical description of myself, obviously didn’t tell him I was black, and told him I would be arriving at a certain type of vehicle and go from there.

ABRAMS:  And then you actually sent a white officer in your place to a meeting?

STALLWORTH:  Yes.  I gave my physical description, because I knew a good buddy of mine working the narcotics division for the department matched my physical description.  And what I did was I gave this officer all of my identification, minus anything with a picture, credit card, library card, this type of thing, and told him of my conversation on the phone, told him what I wanted to accomplish with a face-to-face meeting, and wired him for sound and sent him to the location.

He met with the guy.  The guy gave him some literature, KKK literature, gave him an application form, told him they were part of the Denver chapter.  Denver had a chapter at that time.  And they were forming one in Colorado Springs and were looking to just promote their pure, Aryan, white race agenda in the Colorado Springs area.

ABRAMS:  What did you learn about the Klansmen?  What kind of crimes do you think you were you able to prevent?

STALLWORTH:  Well, I was more interested, from an intelligence-gathering standpoint—obviously, any crimes that came up we would have followed up on.  But I was mainly involved from the intelligence-gathering aspect.  I do know that they planned several cross-burnings over the year that I had this investigation going, and I knew about those cross-burnings well in advance, so that we would have police officers saturating a particular neighborhood.  And during the entire year of this investigation, at no time was a cross ever burned in Colorado Springs.

ABRAMS:  Final question.  David Duke, you talked to him on the phone a couple times, and he said to you that he always knows when he’s talking to a black man on the phone.  He can always tell.  And he was confident that you were a white man?

STALLWORTH:  I talked to David Duke once or twice a week over the year that this investigation took place.  And David did tell me that he could tell I had a little fun.  I asked him one time.  I said, “Aren’t you afraid of being infiltrated by the police or maybe some black person trying to get information on the group?”  He said, no, he never worried about that.

And I asked him why.  He said, “I can always tell when I’m talking to a black man because they pronounce words and letters a certain way.”

And he said, “I can tell that you’re a pure-blooded white man, because you don’t pronounce your words in that manner.”  And from that point on, I started pronouncing those words in that manner just to play with him.
