To determine whether the information was credible, I tried to find where the information had been originally posted, but could not. I did find the same material posted in other places, however.
Whereas the compiler is credited only as “Admin” on the Darkmoon blog, on other sites, like Heretical, the compiler is named as “Germar Rudolf.” In fact the compiler is one Peter Stahl, who falsely attached Germar Rudolf’s name.
On 21 August 2016 Rudolf sent out this repudiation:
Please be advised that I had no part in compiling the numbers listed below. That’s one of Peter Stahl’s disruptive activities. See my article on him here: http://www.vho.org/GB/c/GR/StahlDouglas.html
Stahl did that list I think back in 2002 or 2003 without my knowledge or consent, and it lingers on the net. I have never seen any of these microfilms myself. I remember that Stahl told me once that he has them, and at some point he even offered them to me. But I never had my hands on them, let alone studied them (if they exist). For all I know, this could all be made up. Stahl has a history of lying, and of manipulating or outright forging documents, and the fact that he falsely claimed I had compiled these numbers is a strong indicator that this is fishy. I wouldn’t touch these numbers with a ten-foot pole. gr
Stahl’s apocryphal figure for the total number of Jews who died in Auschwitz is 60,421. Arthur Butz’ less precise but more trustworthy estimate from 1989 is “100,000-150,000” total deaths, of which “a large number would have been Jews” (A. Butz, JHR, fall 1989). It means that Stahl’s presumably fictitious figures are toward the low end of what is likely.
When making a controversial point, be sure that you know the original source of the information that you are using, and whether that source is credible.
