Joseph Goebbels’ Diaries Reveal Inconvenient Truths That Challenge Conventional Narratives

Joseph Goebbels was the ultimate Third Reich insider and had a strong personal relationship with Adolf Hitler. As such, he would have a good idea what was transpiring. He was also one of the leading anti-Jews in the regime.

Goebbels maintained a detailed personal diary that included reflections on all aspects of the war and operations. The diaries are extensive, encompassing 29 volumes of roughly 500 pages each, written in German.

Near the end of the regime, Goebbels gave orders that his diaries were to be copied for safekeeping using the new technique of microfilm. A special darkroom was created in Goebbels’s apartment in central Berlin, and Goebbels’s stenographer, Richard Otte, supervised the work.

Boxes of glass plates containing his microfilmed diaries were sent in April 1945 to Potsdam, just West of Berlin, where they were buried. The original handwritten and typed diaries were packed and stored in the Reich Chancellery. Portions were published thereafter.

Boxes of glass-plate microfiche at Potsdam were discovered by the Soviets and shipped to Moscow, where they sat unopened for decades. In 1992, German historian Elke Fröhlich discovered the plates, and the full and complete diary was published in German between 1992 and 1995.

When the documents were finally released, it was evident that Goebbels’ account often ran completely counter to court historians’ narratives in a number of areas — especially on what is called the “Jewish Question” — and what transpired in Hungary in 1944 in particular.

Goebbels in his diaries referred to partisan problems and even stated some numbers. He spoke of tens of thousands killed, not millions or even hundred of thousands.

The notion that millions of Jews fell into German hands in Russia is a myth. Many got out and placed instrumental roles in the Soviet war effort.

“Stalin … made use of the Jews to eliminate the intelligentsia of the Ukraine, and then exported the Jews by trainloads to Siberia.” Adolf Hitler, evening table talk on 22 August 1942

Apr 29, 1942 (II.4.201) **

The SD gave me a police report on conditions in the East. The danger of the Partisans continues to exist in unmitigated intensity in the occupied areas. The Partisans have, after all, caused us very great difficulties during the winter, and these difficulties have by no means ceased with the beginning of spring. Short shrift (kurzen Prozess) is made of the Jews in all eastern occupied areas. Tens of thousands must bite the dust, and the Fuhrer’s prophecy is fulfilled for them, that Jewry has to pay for inciting a new World War with the complete removal/uprooting (Ausrottung) of their race.

In addition to his Ministry responsibilities, Goebbels was Gauleiter (governor) of the Berlin District. He wrote:

Oct 1, 1942 (II.6.37)

I drive back to the Chancellery with the Führer. Once again we talk through the Jewish Question. Here the Führer takes the same radical standpoint I do. He is also of the opinion that we must completely deport the Jews out of the Reich (restlos herausschaffen), and above all from Berlin.

But this is apparently not so easy even in an uncontested city where the National Socialists had been in power for a decade. According to the exterminationist thesis, over 1.6 million Jews died in the six death camps alone.  At the beginning of 1943, two-thirds of the holocaust was allegedly complete.

Jan 23, 1943 (II.7.177)

The Führer is of the opinion that the Jewish Question in Berlin must be solved as soon as possible. As long as one still finds Jews in Berlin, we cannot speak of internal security. Also the Jews must be removed from Vienna (aus…heraus) as fast as possible.

As late as March 1944, the JQ in Berlin is still ongoing.

Mar 16, 1944 (II.11.490)

Six thousand Jews are still living in Berlin, partly privileged, and partly tolerated. I’m keeping an eye on them, and will still try to deport them (abzuschieben) at the earliest opportunity.

Goebbels had intelligence about the Zionist Israel project.

May 26, 1943 (II.8.370) **

An interesting report tells about the conference at Casablanca. According to this report it was decided that the Anglo-Saxon powers would create a national home for the Jews in Palestine after their eventual victory. This national home is to take care of 20,000,000 Jews. These Jews are to engage chiefly in intellectual and managerial tasks; the work is to be done, as decided in Casablanca, by middle European and especially German workers. For this a large-scale resettlement would be necessary that would, to a certain extent, depopulate (entvölkere) Central Europe. It isn’t hard to imagine what’s going on in the brains of these plutocratic statesmen who are dependent upon the Jews; but we also know what we must do to protect the German people against such a fate.

Over the last six months of 1943, there is scarcely any mention of Jews in Goebbels’ diaries.

Then Joseph Goebbels weighed in with his diaries on the Hungarian situation. Looks like Goebbels the insider and one of Hitler’s closest confidant’s thought something completely different was going on than the court historians convey.

According to the official narrative, the deportation and gassing at Auschwitz of 437,000 Hungarian Jews occurred with great efficiency between April 29 and July 9, 1944.

Mar 23, 1944 (II.11.530-531)

At the moment, the [Hungarian] Jews are not under arrest, but rather confined to the ghetto. We can therefore use it well in Budapest, because they will serve to some extent as hostages against enemy air raids. The people of Budapest were always of the opinion that, so long as there are Jews in the Hungarian capital, they would not be attacked by enemy aircraft.

Apr 18, 1944 (II.12.44)

The Führer then explained to the Gauleiters the background of his campaign in Hungary, and how it was designed. He gave an amusing description of his talk with Horthy. He had to use strong-arm tactics because the old man was not comfortable with the necessary measures. The Führer left him in no doubt, that either it would be a fight to the death or that he had to submit. The Führer had so many forces to apply to this campaign that Horthy offered no serious resistance. In particular, the Führer expected contributions from Hungary of food, oil, manganese, and people. In particular, he wants the 700,000 Jews in Hungary involved in beneficial activities for our war effort.

Apr 27, 1944 (II.12.199)300,000 Hungarian Jews have been detained and imprisoned in the concentration camps. They should come, in large part, to Germany as a workforce. Himmler will take care of this; above all, they are to be used for our difficult war production programs.

May 4, 1944 (II.12.232)

Our plenipotentiary in Hungary, Veesenmayer, gives an excellent speech on the decisive Hungarian factors. …In particular, it’s to his credit that the Hungarian potential is now in large part requisitioned for our war efforts. Also, the Jewish Question is now being handled more energetically. I insist that the measures taken against the Jews in Hungary have a factual basis. It’s not enough that one only announces in the press what happens, but one must also explain it. In Budapest the Jews are starting to be gathered into ghettos. The ghettos are built in the vicinity of the armament factories, because air attacks are likely there. It is hoped thereby to avoid British-American attacks on Budapest, if at all possible.

By 1944, Germany’s war production had relocated factories to bomb-proof underground locations, and small, satellite camps near factory locations. In Hungary the Jewish labor force was already on or near location. But labor shortages were so dire that Nazi officials requested 70,000 Hungarian Jews be pulled from the satellite camps and brought to Germany for labor in armaments production. In 1944, any and all Europeans were conscripted into the labor force.

Many able-bodied Hungarian Jewish men were also up in the Carpathian mountains building massive in-depth defensive fortifications in summer 1944. They usually were labor battalions under Hungarian command.

A letter from Hitler to Horthy was uncovered. Hitler says Hungarian Jews will not sit out war. A week later, on April 9, 1944, Prime Minister Sztójay places 300,000 Jewish laborers at the disposal of the Reich. Winter Watch note: There were 750,000 Jews in Hungary at this time.

Even so in this Times of Israel article from 2016 we see a fessing up, describing the “Glass House” operation whereby 50,000 to 80,000 Hungarian Jews were given passes to leave the country to Palestine.

In 1944, the Jews were still a strongly entwined group, especially in the economy. The expulsion of all Hungarian Jews, or even of only those in the provinces outside Budapest, in an interval of two months, would have been like a virtual atom bomb dropped on the Hungarian economy.

As of April 19, 1944, the German authorities in Hungary were “encountering greatest difficulties” procuring rail transport even for 10,000 employable Jews on their hands. On April 27, they reported that, while transport had finally been arranged for 4,000 of them, rail shortages were still delaying the deportations for labor, which at that point contemplated 50,000 employable Jews.

Auschwitz was a large industrial complex. Much smaller contingents of Hungarian Jews would have been sent there as labor. But to use scarce rail stock to ship the infirm, elderly and children off to Auschwitz?

Yet, a fictitious claim attributed to the Auschwitz “camp resistance movement” states that from May 15 to May 25, 1944, each day saw 13 trains arrive, each train consisting of 48 to 50 cars, 100 Hungarian Jews to a car. That’s 62,400 to 65,000 per day. There are no records of protestations from German officials about having these valuable rail assets commandeered.

Other claims place 147 separate trains with box-car transports that were used. From Aug. 7-30, 1944, some 74,000 more Polish Jews were railed in from Lodz. In the midst of it, 7,503 ghetto inhabitants from Terezin (Theresienstadt), in western Bohemia, were sent 400 miles east to Auschwitz on three transports (May 15, May 16 and May 18, 1944).

Between Sept. 28 and Oct. 28, 1944, with the war lost and German columns pinned down all over Europe, the SS allegedly transported 18,402 Jews from Theresienstadt, Bohemia (today’s Czech Republic) to Auschwitz, Poland, in 11 transports (over 180 box cars). The gassings allegedly continued until late October 1944.

These multiple mass movement of people operations would have to occur throughout the summer and fall of 1944 as German lines crumbled before Allied and Soviet offensives. Axis forces faced severe manpower and supply shortages largely impacted by transport and deployment. See next clip for the non-cartoon world background on aerial attacks against German trains.

D-Day was in June 1944. At about the time of the Normandy breakout at St. Lo, a massive Soviet offensive called Operation Bagration started on June 22, 1944, that caught the Axis poorly deployed.

The Soviets focused their massive attacks on Army Group Centre — not Army Group North Ukraine, as the Germans had originally expected. More than 2.3 million Soviet troops went into action against German Army Group Centre, which had a strength of fewer than 800,000 men and only 40 fighter aircraft. At the points of attack, the numerical and quality advantages of the Soviet forces were overwhelming.

The story in Normandy of Germany’s greatest tank commander further illustrates the desperation.

Read “‘Black Baron’ Tank Ace Michael Wittmann: The Greatest Unsung Soldier of All Time”

The Germans would have needed every rail car and all personal available to counter this.

By early August 1944, the Soviets were just east of Auschwitz, approaching Krakow, Poland, and were in eastern Slovakia. The German Luftwaffe was effectively neutered in these offensives, and making desperate attempts to interdict Allied air raids. At this point, Germany was facing a refugee onslaught in the evacuation of its own nationals.

Furthermore, if extermination was the objective, why not improvise means to kill them in Hungary, and perhaps even blame it on the Hungarians? In fact, there are sites in Hungary that need to be disinterred. Although sites like Cservenka and Kerecsend have turned up smaller numbers of bodies, historians wedded to the Auschwitz story keep the forensics proceeding slowly, if at all. In actuality most of the mass graves unearthed in Hungary contained the bodies of Hungarians who supported the Axis war effort.

5 Comments on Joseph Goebbels’ Diaries Reveal Inconvenient Truths That Challenge Conventional Narratives

  1. Any rational thinking person would know the supposed transport and mass killing of Jews in the final months of WWII is not only an impossibility, but makes no sense. As the old saying goes, “truth is the first casualty of war”.

    • I don’t “deny” anything, I am simply pointing out the Allied and Soviet aircraft dominated the air at that point and shot up rolling stock and rail lines in abundance. German supply and logistics were in dire straits in autumn of 1944. The Soviet lines after Operation Bagration that summer were close to Krakow and Auschwitz.

      Specifically your list mentioned eleven large organized train loads of 180 boxcars leaving Terezin in one month, taking a long slow exposed 400 mile trip EAST toward the Soviet advance. Those would have attracted considerable attention from the air leaving about every three days. German nationals were being hard pressed and desperately shipped WEST out of East Prussia at the same time. Doesn’t combine.

    By Paul Rassinier (A Jew who was in Buchenwald concentration camp).
    Statistics: Six Million or …
    After some fifteen years of historical research, I have come to the following conclusion:
    Here, then is the Jewish population of the world in 1962, calculated on the corrected data of the World Center of Contemporary Jewish Documentation.
    1. World Jewish population in 1939: 16,643,120
    2. Jewish victims of Nazism: 1,589,492
    3. World Jewish population living in 1945(l): 15,053,628
    4. Jewish natural increase of 16% since 1946: 2,408,580
    5. Total Jewish population on 1962(2): 17,552,208
    And here is the same as calculated on the corrected data of Mr. Raul Hilberg:
    1. World Jewish population in 1939: 16,643,120
    2. Jewish victims of Nazism: 987,592
    3. World Jewish population living in 1946: 15,655,528
    4. Jewish increase of 16% since 1946: 2,504,884
    5. Total Jewish population in 1962: 18,160,412

    To the everlasting credit of Paul Rassinier is the fact that with his L’opération “Vicaire” he undertook the defense of the “highest moral authority on earth” in spite of the fact that he was a professed atheist. It was likewise honorable for this former deportee, the poor victim of the hell of the concentration camps, to refrain from capitalizing on his experiences as a camp inmate and, instead, to put himself at the service of historical truth concerning the German camps and the “Jewish holocaust.” Clearly, Paul Rassinier belonged, as his friends and admirers were always able to appreciate, to this elite of men whose sole ambition is never to repudiate themselves and to conserve an unswerving allegiance to the principles they have chosen to serve.

    Having joined the Socialist Party, SFIO, in 1934, Paul Rassinier became the head of that party in the Belfort area when the war broke out in 1939. Following the German occupation of France, he participated in the founding of the “Libre Nord” organization which became involved in various forms of “passive resistance,” including the smuggling of Jewish refugees over the Franco-Swiss border into Switzerland in cooperation with the Swiss Jewish Committee. Rassinier’s activities eventually came to the attention of the German authorities who caused him to be arrested and to be deported to the concentration camp at Buchenwald. Later he was sent to the camp at Dora where he was incarcerated until the end of the war.

    The following are two quotes from unpublished sources whose content I have tried — so far unsuccessfully — to have verified by rabbinical scholars. I suspect that their ultimate source is the book The Holocaust Dogma of Judaism by Ben Weintraub. The meaning of the second quote is made clearer if one understands something about Gematria, the Kabbalistic practice of interpreting texts by associating words and numbers. This material by itself does not prove the scriptural origins of the Six Million, but in combination with the fact that the number was used in other places (see below), this seems to clinch the case.
    [Quote 1] Jewish prophecies in the Torah require that 6 million Jews must “vanish” before the state of Israel can be formed. “You shall return minus 6 million.” That’s why Tom Segev, an Israeli historian, declared that the “6 million” is an attempt to transform the Holocaust story into state religion. Those six million, according to prophecy, had to disappear in “burning ovens”, which the judicial version of the Holocaust now authenticates. As a matter of fact, Robert B. Goldmann writes:
    “. . . without the Holocaust, there would be no Jewish State.”
    A simple consequence: Given six million Jews gassed at Auschwitz who ended up in the “burning ovens” (the Greek word holocaust means burned offerings), therefore, the prophecies have now been “fulfilled” and Israel can become a “legitimate state”. –Unknown
    [Quote 2] Regarding the ‘six million’ number you should know the following:
    In the Hebrew text of the Torah prophesies, one can read “you shall return”. In the text the letter “V” or “VAU” is absent, as Hebrew does not have any numbers; the letter V stands for the number 6. Ben Weintraub, a religious scientist, learned from rabbis that the meaning of the missing letter means the number is ‘6 million’. The prophesy then reads:
    You will return, but with 6 million less.
    See Ben Weintraub: “The Holocaust Dogma of Judaism”, Cosmo Publishing, Washington 1995, page 3. The missing 6 million must be so before the Jews can return to the Promised Land. Yahweh sees this as a cleaning of the souls of the sinful people. The Jews must, on the return to the Promised Land, be clean — the cleaning shall be done in burning stokes. –A Correspondent

    A.On page 482 of the article on ‘Anti-Semitism’ in the 10th Edition of the Encyclopedia Britannica (1902) is found the words:
    “While there are in Russia and Rumania six millions of Jews who are being systematically degraded…”.
    B. In the American Hebrew Magazine of October 31, 1919, there appeared an article entitled “The Crucifixion of Jews Must Stop!” By Martin H Glynn, former governor of the state of New York. This article begins, “From across the sea, six million men and women call to us for help …”. The article was published approximately 20 years before the outbreak of WW2.
    Many commentators have noted that anti-Semitism does not exist in a vacuum, but instead is a result of the behavior of Jews themselves. This is reinforced by the fact that, at one time or another, Jews have been expelled from virtually every western city, country, state and principality. This, then, suggests strongly — without consideration of any other historical facts — that Jews themselves were responsible for the Holocaust. This theme has been elaborated upon by Canadian Jew Henry Makow, who has argued that the Zionists — that great cheerleading squad for the promotion of Israel — were themselves responsible for the Holocaust.
    From the above considerations, the conclusion is obvious: While the Jewish Establishment spends millions and billions of dollars promoting the Orthodox Jewish Version of the Holocaust, the ugly fact is that the Holocaust story is a lie used to promote Jewish interests and pick gentile pockets, and to cover up the fact that — far from being Eternal Victims — the Jews are actually ETERNAL VICTIMIZERS.

    236 references to 6,000,000 Jews prior to the Nuremberg Trial announcement.
    The erudite internet writer known as “Toshiro” has compiled a list of 236 references found in newspapers, magazines and books — spanning 45 years, from 1900 to 1945 — in which Jews have claimed that SIX MILLION Jews were (a) about to be killed, (b) were in the process of being killed, or (c) had been killed.
    The words have been repeated like a mantra, a numerological litany from which there is no escape. As there is naturally much repetition, we select here only a handful of these references just to give the reader an idea of the intense process of mass hypnosis that started roughly in 1900 and has been continuing relentlessly for over a hundred years.
