Churchill, De Gaulle and Eisenhower Did Not Mention Holocaust in their Memoirs

by James Buchanan

There are many reasons to not believe the Holocaust story. The world population of Jews did not change significantly between 1939 and 1945, holding steady at about 15 million. Half a million Jews in Paris were still there after the war, despite claims that Nazis were killing Jews wholesale. How could the Nazis miss half a million Jews in a city they controlled for four years?

If the Jews were essentially wiped out in Europe, then how did Israel absorb about three million Jews after the war, and the U.S. well over a million? There were roughly five million Jews in Nazi-occupied Europe, and if you count the ones, who miraculously survived in continental Europe plus the millions, who immigrated from Europe to Israel and America, that pretty much accounts for all of them.

One interesting problem with the Holocaust is that the three great leaders of the West had nothing to say about the Holocaust in their memoirs. Did they perhaps know that the Holocaust was propaganda meant to demonize the Germans, and that eventually it would be exposed as false?

A book by Thomas Dalton reports “Postwar memoirs of three top Allied leaders — Eisenhower, Churchill, and De Gaulle — contain no mention of the Holocaust. Eisenhower’s book, Crusade in Europe (1948), is a single volume of some 550 pages — the smallest of the three. Reviewing the index, one finds no listing for either ‘Auschwitz,’ ‘Holocaust,’ or ‘gas chambers.’ The single entry on Jews refers to the following paragraph:”

“Of all these displaced persons, the Jews were in the most deplorable condition. For years they had been beaten, starved, and tortured. Even food, clothes, and decent treatment could not immediately enable them to shake off their hopelessness and apathy. They huddled together — they seemingly derived a feeling of safety out of crowding together in a single room — and there passively awaited whatever might befall. To secure for them adequate shelter, to establish a system of food distribution and medical service, to say nothing of providing decent sanitary facilities, heat, and light was a most difficult task. They were, in many instances, no longer capable of helping themselves; everything had to be done for them. (pp. 439f.)”

“No mention of extermination, mass murder, gassing, crematoria…”

“Charles de Gaulle’s work, The Complete War Memoirs (1954/1964), consists of three volumes and a total of more than 2,000 pages. In the index we again find no reference whatsoever to ‘Auschwitz,’ ‘Holocaust,’ or ‘gas chambers’ — nor this time even to Jews. This being the latest- written of the three works (French original in 1954), De Gaulle obviously had plenty of time to reflect on the Holocaust; evidently it merited no discussion at all.”

“The largest memoir was written by Churchill. The Second World War (1948-1953) is a massive, six-volume account of the war, consuming nearly 4,500 pages of text. Once again, the indices (one per volume) have no entries at all for ‘Auschwitz,’ ‘Holocaust,’ or ‘gas chamber.’ There are a few references to Jews, but most are simple passing comments. Only one entry, out of six volumes, addresses Jewish persecution. In Volume 1, page 58, we find one single phrase: ‘brutalities towards the Jews were rampant.’ 240”

“These men all knew what transpired at Nuremberg. They saw the concentration camp photos and they personally visited some of the sites. They had access to the most confidential information available. And yet, no extermination camps, no ‘6 million,’ no gas chambers, no Auschwitz…”

There is no reasonable explanation for why Churchill, De Gaulle and Eisenhower would not mention the systematic extermination of six million Jews aside from them knowing that it was propaganda invented after the war at the Nuremberg trial.
