Scotland Yard Releases Jack The Ripper Files
Chief Inspector Donald Swanson, who headed the murder investigation has released his notes to Scotland Yard, and there are some unpleasant surprises. For 100 years people were told that Scotland Yard wasn't sure who the slasher was. In July of 2006 the truth was revealed, Aaron Kosminski was the Ripper.
Chief Inspector, Donald Swanson
Chief Swanson identified Aaron Kosminski, a Polish-Jewish hairdresser living in Whitechapel, East London, as Jack the Ripper. Swanson believes he killed others.
Kosminski's Killing Ground
The districts of Whitechapel, Spitalfields, Aldgate, and the City of London proper.
How He Killed
Kosminski first strangled them, then cut their throats, after which the cadaver was cut at the abdominal region, organs were removed, and sometimes he preformed genital mutilation.
He ate some of the women's organs.
Who Was Aaron Kosminski
Kosminski was born in 1864 to a Russian Jewess, Golda Abrahams. This was a very unstable period for Russia, there were 'problems' with the Jews, and Tsar Nicholas 1 had to create the Pale of the Settlement to contain the problem. In the 1870's the Czar eased restrictions and soon Jewish merchants, doctors, and lawyers flooded the cities. In 1881 Tsar Alexander II was killed by Jewish sponsored revolutionaries.
The Russian populace started exercising pograms, breaking into Jew's houses and shops, looting and burning property, beating, raping, and frequently killing the inhabitants. Kosminski grew up in this environment.
There was no father in his childhood. He was raised by the mother and his two sisters, he saw the sisters as domineering mother figures. Aaron shares a bed with one or both of his sisters when he is living in the Pale, and begins to develop sexual fantasies involving his sisters. He witnesses his sisters' menstrual bleeding, and the fascination begins. Betsy would have been 12 years old in 1869, and Aaron was only 4 or 5 - and as a result of this becomes obsessed with the female sexual organs, imagining blood or violence to be associated with sexuality.
Kominski Starts Hating Women
At 16, during the Russian pogroms, he witnesses the rape of members of his family, and he enjoyed it. His sister's often ridiculed his compulsive masturbation, which in his mind signified their rejection of his sexual fantasies, and their rape was justice.
Russia Flushes It Sewers
Kominski immigrates and is now a Whitechapel hairdresser.
Murders Resembled Blood Libel
Many still think that Kosminski was acting out a form of Blood Libel. The long lower abdominal cut, strangulation, throat slitting, was the age old form Jews used for centuries in their horrid ceremonies.
Israel Schwartz saw Jack the Ripper, but when he viewed Kosminski, he refused to testify against him. He did not want the hanging of a fellow Jew on his conscious.
London's Jewish Community Wanted Silence
This occurred during the period where Russia flushed their sewers and over 200,000 Jewish immigrants landed in Europe, and especially London. This was probably the most anti Semitic period in Londoners history.
The Police Locked Him In Asylums
Kosminski was removed from society in 1890, and placed in the Mile End asylum. And then to Colney Hatch and Leaversden where under the care of his Jewish doctors, they see to it that Kosminski is drugged to the point he was brain dead. He died in 1919.
Is Hollywood Planning Any Movies?
Most people think of 'Jack the Ripper' as another Phantom of the Opera, or Headless Horseman, a legendary type thing. You read the details and Arron wasn't just a naughty boy, he was a genuine monster.
The best guess is this will be buried like the Leo Frank case.
