Nuremberg Farce Quote: Survivor & French Resistance Member Paul Rassinier’s Condemnation

After Germany’s defeat in WWII, the Nuremberg and later trials were organized primarily for political purposes rather than to dispense impartial justice. Wears War brings to you quotes from the many fine men and women who were openly appalled by the trials. All of these people were highly respected and prominent in their field, at least until they spoke out against the trials.

Paul Rassinier, a member of the French resistance and survivor of Buchenwald and Dora concentration camps during World War II, wrote in regard to estimates of Jewish losses at the Nuremberg trial:

The mechanism of this operation, which is so crude that it stares you in the face and which is found in all of the figuring of all of these people, is quite simple: in 1945, during the post-war turmoil, the Jewish communities of every country were supposedly invited to state very quickly what their losses had been so that Justice Jackson could take them into account in his speech for the prosecution at the Nuremberg Trial where such figures were prefaced with the expression: “it is estimated in full cognizance….”

The destruction of German towns and cities was so extensive, it beggars belief that accurate losses could be provided so quickly.

It was another one of the machiavellianisms of Nuremberg that every time that the prosecution brought forth an accusation for which they would not or could not give the source they used the expression “in full cognizance” or “from an assured source”—that was generally the case when the source was Jewish—and it was up to the accused to prove their innocence. At Nuremberg it was not up to the prosecution to prove guilt since the Allies recognized early that their adherence to the Anglo-American jurisprudential presumption of “innocent until proven guilty” would deny them the “convictions” which they sought.

He came to the following conclusion:
During the last 15 years, outside of Soviet-occupied territories, when someone named a witness who claimed to have himself attended the gassings, I went there immediately to record his testimony. And each time the same thing happened: with my file in hand, I asked so many precise questions to the witness, that he finally declared that a good friend, unfortunately deceased, whose testimony could not be questioned, told him about the matter. In this way, I have laid back thousands of kilometers across Europe.

    Best one yet – with the exception of the past one in which the ‘murdered’ man, as told the court by his brother, was recognized sitting in that very court by the German ‘murderer’.

      Paul Rassinier was a truly courageous man. Even though he was a member of the French resistance and suffered major hardships in two German camps, Rassinier felt it was his ethical duty to tell the truth and refute the false claims being made in the world’s press.

      Rassinier wrote extensively about his own experiences and observations in the German camps. He also began to research the entire issue of German genocide against the Jews during the war. Rassinier concluded that the death toll in the camps was far lower than alleged. He also concluded that the deaths in the camps were not caused by a German program of genocide.

      Rassinier had nothing to gain from taking his unpopular position, and after suffering greatly in the German concentration camps during the war, he then suffered intense persecution in postwar France for his courageous writings.

    Will you make an article about the danzig massacre?

      General Waffen,

      Chapter Three of my book “Germany’s War” talks about the violence against the German minority in Poland both before and after Germany’s invasion of Poland. In regard to the Danzig massacre, are you referring to violence against the German citizens of Danzig in September 1939?

  3. John says:

    General waffen,

    There was certainly violence and major discrimination against the German minority in Poland starting in May 1939. We have already run a lengthy article titled “A Blank Check and Forked Tongues: How Britain and Poland Started WWII & Blamed Hitler & Germans For Eternity!” that documents many of these abuses.

    In my opinion, the worst violence against the German minority in Poland was in September 1939. This would include the famous bloody Sunday in Toruń on September 3, 1939. We can run an additional article on this subject if you have an interest.

    • General waffen says:

      that would be helpful, I was talking about Danzig the other day where another fascist said that it was a German “paramilitary group” that attacked the Polish soldiers, I would like information on that. However, I see no corroboration between bloody Sunday and the reason of invading Poland since the invasion had already started then. Oh and will you make an article about Munich and Neville chamberlain? It would be much appreciated.

      • John says:

        General waffen,

        We will post an article about Munich and Neville Chamberlain. This is also discussed in Chapter Three of my book “Germany’s War”.

      • General waffen says:


        Damn it, I want information and your taunting me with that book, I want that book so badly but I can’t :'( I don’t have a damn Amazon account nor any at sites that sells your promising masterpiece. If only I can buy it at a book store 🙁

        Another thing, will you debunk things about Hitler being a Rothschild or working with them? It could be your next book 🙂

    General waffen,

    I will get with our editor and see if we can post an article on Munich and Neville Chamberlain. At this time I do not plan to write about Hitler being a Rothschild or working with them.
