The conditions at Bergen Belsen.

I was in two minds on how to do this blog. Initially I was considering adding graphic pictures to accompany the text , but then I thought that the pictures may just be too horrific and it would turn people away from reading the text.

There are still many who think that the Nazi atrocities were only carried out by the SS, SS-Totenkopfverbände, Einsatzgruppen and Waffen-SS but not by the regular German Wehrmacht soldiers or Luftwaffe. However in recent years evidence has emerged that especially ‘das Heer’ were also responsible for atrocities and some even worse then the SS.

Often helped by Nazi sympathizers or worse yer by allied forces. Aribert Ferdinand Heim (28 June 1914 – 10 August 1992)was anContinue reading “Dr.Aribert Heim-AKA Tarek Hussein Farid-AKA Dr.Death”
