Simon Wiesenthal Center website uses newly altered 1944 Auschwitz photo!
|WW2 photos continue to be re-touched in attempts to support Holocaust 'eye-witness' stories: |
Since the photo was first published in 1978 it was not reprinted before inclusion on the 1999 Simon Wiesenthal Center website, which means the smoke was added in early 1999 just before the photo was shown on the site. If these Holocaust promtion groups believe mass-murders occurred they would not be continuing to alter photos to support their own 'eye-witnesses'.
|The website caption: "As these prisoners were being processed for slave labor, many of their friends and families were being gassed and burned in the ovens in the crematoria. The smoke can be seen in the background. June 1944".||In the May, 1944 photo of new arrivals in camp there is no smoke above the background fence-posts and poles. Air photos from 5 days in 1944 also show no visible smoke. Photo from The Auschwitz Album, 1978 (First edition)|
|Smoke has been drawn on in an attempt to support 'eye-witness's' stories of smoke billowing from the Cremation building chimneys. As it was not previously re-printed the photo was almost certainly altered in early 1999 to include on the Simon Wiesenthal site. |
