New York City 2020 versus Auschwitz 1944
by Carolyn Yeager
NEW YORK CITY, one of the largest, wealthiest cities in the world, struggles to handle the death of 600 persons per day from the coronavirus pandemic — which begs the question: how did a relatively small work-and-transit camp under German control manage to dispose of 6,000 bodies a day???
From the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, America’s perceived top authority on such questions, we read:
At the height of the deportations, an average of 6,000 Jews were gassed each day at the Birkenau killing center using Zyklon B, a poisonous gas.
The “height of the deportations” referred to took place in 1944, most notably from Hungary with an alleged 400,000 in two months (April to June).
How did they do it? The only possible answer is, they didn’t! If we cannot manage 600 bodies a day in the largest US city, they surely couldn’t handle 10 times that many daily in the small Birkenau facilities.
Because of the tremendous number claimed for the “Holocaust,” the disposal of the bodies is a burning, yet still not satisfactorily answered, question. Allegedly they were cremated in the three crematoria facilities at Birkenau. But this being insufficient, outdoor burning of bodies piled onto makeshift pyres was resorted to. But neither aerial photographs taken at the time nor evidence on the ground of the mountains of ash and bone that would have resulted, back up such a story.
There is no physical evidence that such massive numbers of prisoners were murdered. There is only the testimony of ‘survivors’ which is almost all hearsay.
Now we have the Covid-19 deaths coming fast and furious (although nothing like what is claimed for the so-called “death camps” in Europe during WW2) and we see the difficulty of such body disposal even in advanced, highly developed modern Western nations. If we can’t do it now, how could the Germans have done so much more 80 years ago while under unrelenting attack on two major war fronts? It boggles the imagination.
The answer they’ve always given is: They did it because we say they did. And that cannot be questioned.
Are the people and world ‘leaders’ going to think about this? Will it make them question their easy assumptions? I wouldn’t bet on it but we should push for it, demand it, nevertheless. Demand answers, not equivocation.
According to the Daily Mail, the number of burials on Hart Island has quadrupled amid the pandemic.
The city has used Hart Island since the 19th century to bury New Yorkers with no known next of kin or whose family are unable to arrange a funeral.
Typically, about 25 bodies are buried there once a week by low-paid Rikers Island jail inmates. That number began increasing last month as the new coronavirus spread rapidly and New York became the epicenter of the pandemic.
They are now burying about two dozen bodies a day, five days a week, DailyMail.com has been told.
Only 125 per week! NYC is way behind the number of “body bags” that are piling up in the morgues and refrigerated trucks.
Burial operations continue to be supervised by the Dept. of Corrections, who has been performing this duty on Hart Island for over 150 years.
For burial on the island, the dead are wrapped in body bags and placed inside pine caskets. The deceased’s name is scrawled in large letters on each casket, which helps if anybody needs to be exhumed later. The caskets are buried in long narrow trenches excavated by digging machines.
The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner (OCME) can store about 800 to 900 bodies in its buildings and also has room to store about 4,000 bodies in some 40 refrigerated trucks it can dispatch around the city to hospitals that typically have only small morgues (about 100 bodies per semi truck).
