It has furthermore come to my attention that a "Waggon mit Sonderbehandlung" means a diverted carriage – a railway car set off on another stretch of track. Does that mean the passengers are going to get murdered? If it is a freight car, there aren't even any passengers!
I have lost count of the number of times I have come across the words "Sonderbehandlung", "Sonderaktion", and all the rest of it in perfectly ordinary German commercial texts and contracts. These are perfectly ordinary words in German. So much for the "proof" of the gas chambers and so on and so forth, introduced by people like Robert Jackson or Chief Justice Lawrence, neither one of whom had any knowledge of the German knowledge. The real question is: why do Germans believe it?
