You seem to be missing the point, which is: why was the six million figure mentioned in
1919, too? This, along with other info posted about this figure (see below) makes one
suspect that the figure of six million has some sort of significance for the Jews and was
chosen for that reason, not because it was the actual number of Jews killed in the
Holocaust or threatened with starvation in Glynn's article. BTW, this article was posted
by Michael several weeks ago verbatim and no attempt was made to say that Glynn was
referring to the Jews' being exterminated, and the source was stated as being a
periodical, The American Hebrew. As I said, that isn't the point.

The Crucifixion of Jews Must Stop!
By Martin H. Glynn
(Former Governor of the State of N.Y.)
>From across the sea six million men and women call to us for help, and
eight hundred thousand little children cry for bread.
These children, these men and women are our fellow-members of the
human family, with the same claim on life as we, the same
susceptibility to the winter's cold, the same propensity to death
before the fangs of hunger. Within them reside the illimitable
possibilities for the advancement of the human race as naturally would
reside in six million human beings. We may not be their keepers but we
ought to be their helpers.
In the face of death, in the throes of starvation there is no place
for mental distinctions of creed, no place for physical
differentiations of race. In this catastrophe, when six million human
beings are being whirled toward the grave by a cruel and relentless
fate, only the most idealistic promptings of human nature should sway
the heart and move the hand.
Six million men and women are dying from lack of the necessaries of
life; eight hundred thousand children cry for bread. And this fate is
upon them through no fault of their own, through no transgression of
the laws of God or man; but through the awful tyranny of war and a
bigoted lust for Jewish blood.
In this threatened holocaust of human life, ............."

Good Morning from the Zundelsite:
I have just started reading David Irving's newest - "Nuremberg: The
Last Battle" and thought that I should share with you a segment of a
chapter appropriately called "The Origin of Six Million."
It starts on page 61, describing an interesting visit between the
American chief prosecutor, Justice Robert H. Jackson and three sage
". . . A few days before leaving for London Jackson visited
F.B.I. officials in New York on June 11, 1945. Here he had, probably
not at his own wish, his first meeting with several powerful Jewish
organizations who had already made quite clear to him they wanted a
hand in running the trial. In an office provided by the F.B.I. in the
Federal Building, three leading lawyers, Judge Nathan Perlman, Dr
Jacob Robinson, and Dr Alexander Kohanski, came to exert pressure on
behalf of a coalition of representative American organizations.
They began by heaping picturesque praise on Jackson's first
report to the president, which had now been published, describing it
as 'like rain on the desert to the Jews.' While others had looked for
precedents in the seventeenth or eighteenth centuries, they flattered
him, Jackson had taken his 'from the twenty-second century.'
These lawyers, who greatly impressed him by their intelligence
and erudition, had hopefully read into his report to the president the
implication that he intended to treat the Nazi persecution of the Jews
as a crime in its own right. Dr Robinson handed him a copy of the
treaty of Sevres in which the Allies had laid down penalties on the
Turks for their atrocities against the Armenians during World War
One. This might serve as a useful precedent. Robinson also suggested
that the tribunal prosecute Alfred Rosenberg in his capacity as chief
Nazi philosopher; they were not seeking vengeance, swore Robinson,
'nor, of course, compensation for Jewish losses'.
How great were these losses, inquired Jackson, seeking a figure
to use at the coming trial. 'Six million,' responded Dr. Robinson, and
indicated that the figure included Jews in all Nazi-occupied lands
'from the Channel to Stalingrad,'
Jackson noted that day:
'I was particularly interested in knowing the source and
reliability of his estimate as I know no authentic data on it.'
Robinson said that he had arrived at his figure by extrapolation
from the known statistics for the Jewish population in 1929 and those
believed to be surviving now. In other words, his figure was somewhere
between a hopeful estimate and an educated guess. 'The difference are
assumed to be killed or in hiding,' he said. Given the turmoils and
tragedies of a war-torn Europe ravaged by bombs and plagues, it was
not a data basis on which a statistician would properly have relied.
Where were the shifting frontiers? Who, indeed, was a Jew? These were
questions about which cartographers, ethnographers, religious
fanatics, and politicians are still at each other's throats. Six
million? By sad but extraordinary coincidence, the American Jewish
community had raised a similar outcry about a 'holocaust' a quarter of
a century earlier, after World War One. In a 1919 speech the governor
of New York, Martin Glynn, had claimed that 'six million' were being
The delegation expressed to Jackson their fears that the Allies
would choose the less onerous course, of merely prosecuting the Nazis
for lesser offenses. These men wanted a decision based on the
persecution of the Jews which, they averred, all the post-war trials
so far conducted had sidestepped. They even asked for a separate court
to try these charges, and failing that, they asked for the right to
have an _amicus curiae_ in Jackson's courtroom to 'represent the six
Foreseeing inevitable problems, Jackson demurred. All the other
persecuted minorities would then feel entitled to the same rights. He
gave the delegation no encouragement, but promised to think about it.
Having obviously failed in that mission, they then asked him at least
to appoint an officer on his staff specifically to handle their
Reading these it looks to me like the six million figure was chosen for some
other reason than accuracy.

What is your problem with the obvious default assumption that it
simply represents an honest estimate, being a total (rounded off)
of various national estimates as you can find in any number of
books about the Holocaust? Why would you lend even the slightest
credence to the idea that this number was "chosen" on any other

It has no religious significance that I am aware of. It is an estimate
made shortly after the war, at which time the horrors of the camps were
just becoming known, and it stuck in people's minds. It is easier to
remember than 5.1 million, or 5.7 million, and is reasonably accurate
for the number of Jews killed. The reason there is a focus on Jews is
that Hitler himself targeted them. C.f. the following quote:
Hitler said that the results of the next war
w=FCrde "nicht die Bolschewisierung der Erde und damit der Sieg des
Judentums sein, sondern die Vernichtung der j=FCdischen Rasse in Europa"
(would not be the Bolshevization of Europe and therewith the victory of
Jewry, but rather the annihilation of the Jewish race in Europe).

> Ashes? Where?
At Auschwitz the "ashes" of the victims, according to Ho"ss (and others)
were "constantly removed and crushed to powder" and dumped in the Vistula
RIver. Even so, incinerated remains of the victims have been found:
In 1965, Hydrokop, a chemical mining enterprise based in Krakow,
was commissioned by the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum to carry
out geological tests at Birkenau aimed at determining the
locations of incineration pits and pyres. Specialists of
Hydrokop bored 303 holes up to 3 m deep. Traces of human ashes,
bones, and hair turned up in 42 sites. Documentation of all the
holes and the diagrams of their distribution are preserved in
the Conservation Department of the Museum

Camp_, p. 179n).
> Coal residues from cremations? Where? Weight?
Some 240 coke delivery reciepts to Auschwitz have survived which show that
between February 1942 and October 1943 that show some 1,005 tonnes of coke
were delivered to Auschwitz. (cf. Pressac, _Technique_, p.224.)

No reason to wonder at all. According to Ho"ss, the commandant of Auschwitz:
The extermination process in Auschwitz took place as follows: Jews
selected for gassing were taken as quietly as possible to the crematories.
The men were already seperated from the women. In the undressing chambers,
prisoners of the Sonderkommandos, who were specially chosen for this
purpose, would tell them in their own language that they were going to be
bathed and deloused, and that they must leave their clothing neatly
together, and, above all, remember where they put them, so that they would
be able to find them again quickly after delousing. The Sonderkommando had
the greatest interest in seeing that the operation proceeded smoothly and
quickly. After undressing, the Jews went into the gas chamber, which was
furnished with showers and water pipes and gave a realistic impression of
a bath house.
The women went in first with their children, followed by the men, who were
always fewer in number. This part of the operation nearly always went
smoothly since the Sonderkommando would always calm those who showed any
anxiety or perhaps had some clue as to their fate. As an additional
precaution, the Sonderkommando and an SS soldier always stayed in the
chamber until the very last moment.
The door would be screwed shut and the waiting disinfection squads would
immediately pour the gas [crystals] into the vents in the ceiling of the
gas chamber down an air shaft which went to the floor. This ensured the
rapid distribution of the gas. The process could be observed through the
peep hole in the door. Those who were standing next to the air shaft were
klled immediately. I can state that about one-third died immediately. The
remainder staggered about and began to scream and struggle for air. The
screaming soon, however, turned to gasping and in a few moments everyone
lay still. After twenty minutes at the most no movement could be detected.
The time required for the gas to take effect varied according to weather
conditions and depended on whether it was damp or dry, cold or warm. It
also depended on the quality of the gas, which was never exactly the same,
and on the composition of the transports, which might contain a high
proportion of healthy Jews, or the old and sick, or children. The vicitrms
became unconscious after a few minutes, according to the distance to from
the air shaft. Those who screamed and those who were old, sick, or weak,
or the small children died quicker thn those who were jealthy or young.
The door was opened a half an hour after the gas was thrown in and the
ventilation system was turned on. There were no noticeable change in the
bodies and no sign of convulsions or discoloration. Only after the bodies
had been left lying for some time- several hours -did the usual death
stans appear where they were laid. Seldom did it occur that they were
soiled with feces. There were no signs of wounds of any kind. The faces
were not contorted.
The Sonderkommando now set agbout removing the gold teeth and cutting the
hair from the women. After this, the bodies were taken up an elevator and
laid out in front of the ovens, which had meanwhile been fired up.
Depending in the size of the bodies, up to three corpses could be put
through one oven door at the same time. The time required for cremation
also depended on the number of bodies in each retort, but on average it
took twenty minutes. As previously stated, Crematories II and III could
cremate two thousand bodies in twenty-four hours, but a higher number was
not possible without causing damage to the installations. Crematories IV
and V should have been able to cremate 1,500 bodies in twenty-four hours,
but as far as I know this figure was never reached.
During the period when the fires were kept continuously burning without a
break, the ashes fell through the grates and were constantly removed and
crushed to powder. The ashes were then taken by trucks to the Vistula
[River], where they immediately dissolved and drifted away. The ashes from
the burning pits near Bunker II and from Cremaotory V were handled in the

Meanwhile, according to Czech:
June 7 
The management of the crematoriums in Auschwitz II orders four sieves from
the DAW for sifting through human ashes. The sieves are to be equipped
with an iron frame. The openings of the sieve screens are to be 2/5 inch
** A former prisoner and member of the Special Squad, Szlama Dragon,
states during the H"oss Trial that the ashes of the burned corpses are
taken from the pits near the crematoriums, ground fine in special mortars,
and taken to the Sola River (APMO, Dpr.-ZO/28a, p. 127).

Are you suggesting, then, that this meant that the corpses of those
murdered in the gas-chambers _weren't_ incinerated in the Kremas? (Or the
incineration pits?) If not, where _were_ they incinerated? How where they
incinerated? Are you implying that they _weren't_ incinerated? (Or that
they were even murdered in the gas-chambers?) If so, what happened to
them? What evidence do you have that would support such "theories?"
Given that you have presented a series of fatuous "objections" (which is
par for the course for you) as to why the furnaces in the Kremas could not
have operated as they did, according to the designs, estimates, and
testimonies of those who built, managed, and operated them; I am, to say
the least, skeptical of your unsubstantiated claims otherwise.
> Surely, the cremation of more than 4.5 million would leave far more than
traces in 40 spots.
Why should it when the pits were emptied of the incinerated remains of the
victims by prisoners? According to Czech:
December 5 
The woodland demolition squad is created in Birkenau, to which 50 female
prisoner are sent. The squad works on the grounds of the so-called big
sauna and Crematorium IV. It must clear the grounds and fill in and cover
with grass all the pits previously used for burning the corpses of those
killed in the gas chambers. It must also sift through the human ash
remains before they are strewn in the Vistula.** LIttle trees are planted
on the leveled grounds.
** The male and female prisoners attempt to sabotage the orders of the SS
and avoid whenever possible removing the ashes of the murdered before the
pits are filled in, in the hope that these human remains- some
incompletely burned bones -will in the future prove the crime of genocide
that was committed here.
Source: Czech, _Auschwitz Chronicle_, p.759. Cf. APMO, D-AuII-3a/66b,
Labor Deployment List.
Obviously, some of these human remains that the labor Kommando
clandestinely left in the incineration pits were discovered by Hyrokop in
