The Bears Of Buchenwald

The Story Of The Buchenwald

Two bears mauled you and then an eagle picked the bones

Disguised As A Zoo

Countless Jews Died At The Paws Of These Bears

Buchenwald Was A Camp Of Horrors

Ari L. Goldman Of Columbia University

The story of the Buchenwald bears is verified by Ari Goldman. Professor at Yeshiva; M.S., Columbia; New York Times Fellow, Harvard Divinity School; Visiting Fulbright Professor, etc. His story appeared in the New York Times.

Ari Goldman’s writings --- Published in the NY Times

On November 10, 1988, The New York Times carried carried an article to mark the 50th anniversary of Kristallnacht ("Time 'Too Painful' to Remember," Ari L. Goldman).

It included this recollection by Morris Hubert, a onetime Buchenwald inmate:

The story

"In the camp there was a cage with a bear and an eagle, and every day, they would throw a Jew in there. The bear would tear him apart and the eagle would pick at his bones."

"But that's unbelievable," whispered a visitor.

"It is unbelievable," said Mr. Hubert, "but it happened."

The Buchenwald Trial

Roosevelt, and Morgentheau, had established a special tribunal of Jewish prosecutors and judges, and they ran the Nuremberg trials.

The Buchenwald Trial

In this trial, before a U.S. military tribunal at Dachau, from the 11th April 1947 to the 14th August 1947, Thirty-one members of the staff of the Buchenwald camp were found guilty of atrocities and twenty-two were sentenced to death, eight being subsequently commuted, the rest to various terms of imprisonment. Twelve of the defendants were executed on various dates.

The Commandant's Wife

Ilse Koch was known as the “Bitch of Buchenwald” for her bestial cruelty and sadistic behavior. She was especially fond of riding her horse through the camp, whipping any prisoner who attracted her attention.

Ilse would specially select prisoners with distinctive tattoos on her rides around the camp. These prisoners would be killed and their skin tanned and stored for later use by the SS guards. Her taste for collecting lampshades made from the tattooed skins was described by a witness at The Nuremberg Trials after the war:

Jewish Wedding Rings

Special Army investigators document that Ilsa had a crate of wedding rings.

Ilsa Had Jews Burnt Alive

Ilsa Koch Was A Monster

Prisoners there were locked in the doghouses, chained by the neck, and forced to lap up their food from a bowl. Anyone failing to bark when Koch walked by received twenty-five lashes with a cane. Koch had one prisoner beaten senseless, then ordered guards to stop up his anus with hot asphalt and force him to drink castor oil.

  3. Both of you are assholes just accept the website

  4. I don't deny the holocaust or dispute the number of victims, but this website is full of bs. There was no cage with a bear and an eagle at Buchenwald, and mainstream holocaust scholars readily acknowledge this. The bear and eagle cage myth is one of the odder myths ever spun about the holocaust. Buchenwald wasn't even a death camp, brutal though it was. It was a forced labor camp. The extermination camps were all located in German occupied Poland.

    Honestly, people who spread hyperbolic myths about the holocaust only serve to sew doubt in the minds of ordinary people as to the actual events that did occur.

    I stated at the outset that I do not dispute the number of victims (usually given as 6 million) and frankly even if the actual number were only a fraction of that it wouldn't change the fact that the Nazi's intent was clearly to kill all the Jews of Europe.

    Having said that however, I think it must be said that another thing that has always bothered me is how the death toll remains at 6 million after it was determined - by mainstream scholars -that the number killed at Auschwitz was initially overestimated by about 3 million (for decades the official narrative held that 4 million Jews were killed at Auschwitz alone; now it is accepted universally that about a million Jews were killed there).

    So, did they just happen to find 3 million previously unknown murders at the same time? It strikes me as extraordinarily dubious that the 3 million overestimate at Auschwitz was offset by the more or less simultaneous discovery that there had been a 3 million undercount elsewhere.

    Again, I'm really not a holocaust denier or revisionist but it's hard not to get the impression that there is something 'sacred' about the 6 million figure such that if, as in the case of Auschwitz, it is learned that there were far fewer killed there than initially believed, the 6 million count will be sustained nonetheless, usually by increasing the number of victims of the Einsatzgruppen, the number of whim's victims is notoriously difficult to accurately assess.
