Germans under the Allied Inquisition Part II

By J Bellinger.

January 1945

Two members of the Waffen SS were pulled out of their camouflage holes , led to a hollow and shot. Both of their hands were raised at the time.

A Waffen SS member, K., who was convalescing in a hospital due to a bullet in his lungs, was shot to death by an American soldier as he was being transferred to another hospital in the company of a Red Cross Nurse.

April 1945

Paderborn. An SS officer is ordered by his interrogators to take off his shirt and undershirt. He is then beaten about the face and back with a whip. An MP extinguishes his lit cigarette on the man’s back. He is then ordered to stand with his face against a wall, while his interrogators press the muzzle of a gun against his neck. A chain is placed around his wrist and twisted until the man collapses from the pain.

Bavaria. A Police General is taken prisoner and led to a cell, where an American soldier holds a pistol to his head and then urinates all over his body.

At a special camp run by the Americans for captured SS and Nazi Party members, a sadistic American Sergeant, Paul Doyle, brutally torments the men under his charge. Daily he beats men into unconsciousness, often breaking their ribs. The men are beaten so frequently and so badly that they have to be hospitalized. One night he enters a cell and beats a man for an exceptionally long period of time. When the victim becomes unconscious, water is thrown into his face to revive him. He is then beaten again. Finally, he is dragged from his cell unconscious. The man is later hospitalized for severe injuries, internal and external. Another SS officer is so badly beaten by Doyle that he later dies of his injuries. Another victim has his head pushed under water for long periods of time and his buttocks so severely whipped that the skin is torn and hanging.

An SS man is beaten repeatedly on the soles of his naked feet.

Two SS men are forced to smear each other’s face with human vomit.

Two SS men are shot to death after they surrender their arms to Americans.

Schesslitz. A deputy Ortsgruppenleiter is beaten bloody by Americans with rubber truncheons and fists about the head. He is then compelled to eat lit cigarettes. In a garden the form of a grave is measured out, then the man is bound hand and foot and is left lying on the floor all night long in a room lit by candle light. The next day the man is ordered to dig a grave and then stand in it, while an American soldier has his picture taken defecating and urinating in the pit.

Two SS men are spat at by an American Sergeant and then kicked in the genitalia until they collapse.

May 1945

An SS member is burned repeatedly with cigarette butts all over his body.

An SS man is chained by his legs and hung up over a latrine with his head in the toilet.

Altenburg. SS members are forced to completely disrobe. Americans then whip them so badly that they lose consciousness. In that condition they are left lying on the floor.

Herford. A severely wounded SS officer is compelled by the Americans to carry heavy rolls of barbed wire on his naked shoulders, running at double time. The man soon collapses when the skin from his back is ripped from his body.

June 1945

A group of SS leaders are laden down with heavy stones and then commanded to exercise barefoot over broken stones and gravel, until they collapse and have to be carried away.

Two amputees are bound together with cords and forced to remain standing without any nourishment for 48 hours. Whereupon the "interrogator" Sergeant Wertheim quips: "Now you have two legs."

Cage 22: Prisoners are forced to clean the latrines night after night-with their bare hands.

Cage 23: The American camp Sergeant whiles away the hours by sticking needles into the stomachs of helpless prisoners. Note: The above occurred in camps in France.

July 1945 Stuttgart. A man was dragged out of his bed in the middle of the night by American soldiers because he was accused of being a member of the Allegemeine SS.
He was dragged into the street and cudgeled. One half hour later, he was again dragged out of his bed by 2 Americans and driven to an open field and ordered to get out. The man refused, fearing he would be shot in the back. Consequently he was beaten with rifle butts and fists until he was unconscious. Water was thrown on his face and he regained consciousness, whereby he was again beaten unconscious for a second time. As a result of the attack he suffered broken ribs, gaping head wounds, brain damage, and loss of teeth.

In the vicinity of Munich, Waffen SS members were forced to eat their uniform insignias.

August 1945

In the POW camp Wolfhagen, a severely wounded SS corporal is tortured by Americans in order to extract a confession. He is kicked in the genitals and burned over and over again with lighted cigarettes. The young man is 20 years old.

Weiden. POW camp. Two SS men are handcuffed to each other while interrogators beat them. They are repeatedly struck in the kidneys. Special mention should be made for the Ziegenhain camp, where we have the identities of the American inquisitors. The methods of torture used were even worse than the above mentioned cases. The chief interrogators at this camp were Inspector Simon, Watson, and Lieutenant Goodman. One of their favorite games was to play "Autobahn", whereby a victim had the hair of his eyebrows and eyelashes cut or ripped out. Later the hair was shoved into the victims mouth or nostrils for long periods of time. Here are a few more examples of "special treatment":

A machine technician had his head banged into a wall so many times that blood spurted out of his nostrils.

A man was brought in for "interrogation". He was beaten extensively on the hands, face, neck and ears with a rubber truncheon festooned with barbed wire. Afterwards he was struck in the face repeatedly with bare fists. He was forced to stare in blinding lights for hours on end and threatened with hanging or shooting. He had swastikas painted on his neck and forehead.

A victim is forced to swallow a postcard with Hitler’s photo, along with a burning cigarette.

A man is led into one of the torture chambers. There he is compelled to undress and lie in vomit, urine, and filth. He is then compelled to perform acts so disgusting that they shall not be recited here.

"Inspector Simon" forces a man to swallow lit cigarettes and then knocks his teeth out. An interned Jew, who had been in Auschwitz, confides to a co-prisoner, that he had never been beaten by the SS when he was at Auschwitz, but now he was being beaten by the Americans.

So it went, day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year. The dungeons of the Spanish Inquisition could hardly have appeared more sinister than these "centers for interrogation". It even appears that the Spanish Inquisition served as a model for the allied Torquemadas and Matthew Hopkins. One curious fact concerning these trials is that most of them were held by Americans, as is evidenced by the following:

"The British, French, and the Russians withdrew from Nuremberg after the first and only "International Military Tribunal"...the other twelve trials which subsequently took place at Nuremberg and only came to an end in 1948, were all-American shows. The judges and prosecutors were all American citizens; the trials were held under the American flag; the proceedings began each morning by the Marshal of the Court asking God’s blessing on the United States of America, plaintiff versus the defendants. Nevertheless the tribunals were supposed to be "international" and to derive their authority from the Allied Control Council even after the latter ceased to exist." (18)

Needless to say, not one of the interrogators employed by these modern day inquisitors was ever charged with a crime or brought to justice. The dark deeds of their crimes might never have seen the light of day had it not been for the persistence and courage of the few who documented their offenses. How laughable it is to me when I read that some non-revisionist "historian" claims that confessions were never extracted from the Germans by coercion or torture. The power of these "historians" lies in their belief that the truth will never reach the public.

Knowledge is power-without knowledge we will forever be at the mercy of those who wish to do our thinking for us.

Now that we have exposed the methods of interrogation used by the allies against the ordinary soldier as well as the common man in the street, let us proceed to examine Nuremberg as well as the various trials held against ex-concentration camp commanders and/or staff, otherwise know as the "major" Nazi war criminals. As previously stated, and in view of the overwhelming evidence thus presented, it is inconceivable that the allies should not have used torture on those Nazis accused of crimes in order to glean "confessions". The very wording of the documents signed by those accused is open to suspicion:

"The above statements are true; this declaration is made by me voluntarily and without compulsion..."

Without compulsion, indeed. Let us begin with Nuremberg.
