“The first gassing of human beings at Auschwitz, a pivotal nadir in human history, is claimed to have occurred on Sept. 3, 1941. The accounts reporting it are the archetypes for all later gassing accounts.
In Auschwitz: The First Gassing, renowned Italian Holocaust historian Carlo Mattogno exhibits the sources about this alleged event and analyzes them critically. He shows that these sources contradict each other in every essential point, rendering it impossible to extract a consistent story. Original wartime documents inflict a final blow to the tale of the first homicidal gassing.
Every historical proposition that moves the world depends critically on its purported genesis. Pointing to “how it all began” decides whether the masses will accept or reject the story.
Hence unparalleled efforts were made to concoct a historical origin for the gas chamber myth, with which then an unprecedented world propaganda was started: The story of “the first gassing.”
But this study demonstrates that the officially sanctioned version of this alleged event turns out to be mere fiction, an invention of political historiography with no historical basis at all.
