Adolf Eichmann’s Boasts About the Holocaust Unearthed – Opinion

It is a world so consumed by itself, that misgendering LARPs has been deemed a violent crime. It is a land of microaggressions and even more micro tolerance of anyone and anything that doesn’t play along with whichever let’s pretend game one chooses to play. The Emperor’s New Clothes used to be a children’s story warning against pride’s folly. Now, it’s a documentary script.

It is possible to feel hurt but not actual evil. This is evident in mass graves and in the treatment of human beings in cattle cars. They are treated less dignitively than cattle, as they are taken from their homes and families to be slaughtered. The gas chambers at Dachau and Auschwitz are the real evil. They still have the marks of the dead trying to get out. Today’s trivial pursuers, self-obsessed and self-satiated, unshakable in their belief fantasy trumps human biology and so little as a quizzical glance cast their way constitutes a capital offense, need history’s stark reminders of what constitutes genuine oppression.

This reminder is brought to you by recently found taped interviews with Adolf Eichmann (Holocaust overseer). Although not the Holocaust’s planner, Eichmann was in charge of its logistics. Eichmann was responsible for data collection of Jews in Germany, German-occupied territories and forced movements of Jews to concentration camps.

The interviews, conducted in 1957 in Argentina by Dutch journalist and Nazi collaborator Willem Sassen, showed Eichmann freely admitting to his role in mass murder.

“If we had killed 10.3 million Jews, I would say with satisfaction, ‘Good, we destroyed an enemy,’ Eichmann says.

“Then we would have fulfilled our mission.”

In 1960, Mossad agents captured Eichmann in Argentina and took him to Israel. After a trial, the court found Eichmann guilty. He was hanged in 1962. Eichmann’s cowardice during this, as he denied culpability for his crimes, contrasts with his own words recorded during the interview.

“It’s a difficult thing that I am telling you and I know I will be judged for it,” he admits.

“But I cannot tell you otherwise. It’s the truth. You can’t deny that it is true.

“Nothing annoys me more than a person who later denies the things he has done.”

Although transcripts of portions of Sassen’s interviews with Eichmann were published in 1960, given that Sassen oversaw the transcriptions their accuracy is suspect. The recordings themselves remain hidden from the public eye until this point. Kobi Sitt, an Israeli documentary filmmaker, was granted permission by the German government to use tapes from his documentary. The tapes were given anonymously by a donor company. The Devil’s ConfessionThe current Israeli television broadcast of the show is titled “The Message from Jerusalem”.

We must never forget the Holocaust’s horrors. We should never accept the role of drama princesses or princes. They are often embodied within the same person crying outrage, letting slip tweets about butthurt, and deserve consideration at the same time as the people who have throughout history cried chaos and allowed slip the dogs and cats of war. Genuine evil laughs in hurt feeling’s face. We should too.
