Was the Polish Holocaust Also a Hoax?

Putting the Jewish holocaust in context
Six million Poles, or 22% the total population,
were systematically murdered in WW2.
Half were Jews; half were Christians.
The Nazis waged a genocidal war against Poles and Russians,
as well as Jews. Why do we never hear of this?
Adolf Hitler: " The destruction of Poland is our primary task....Be merciless! Be brutal...proceed with maximum severity. The war is to be a war of annihilation."
(Lucas, The Forgotten Holocaust, p.4)

Hardly a week goes by without attempts by Internet die-hards to debunk the Jewish holocaust as a "holohoax."
I understand the motivations of holocaust minimizers but they discredit themselves as unfeeling ignoramuses.
Three million non-Jewish Poles were killed by the Nazis. No one
questions this. The Jews were below Poles in the scale of "untermenschen"
(subhumans.) (Poles received about 650 calories per day in rations
compared to 450 for Jews.)

Do the die-hards expect us to believe the Nazis would exterminate Poles and somehow spare
In a speech August 22,1939 at his Obersaltzberg HQ, Hitler said his aim is to "kill without pity or mercy all men, women and children of Polish descent or language. Only in this way can we obtain the living space we need...: (Gumkowski, "Poland Under Nazi Occupation" p.59)
In "Forgotten Survivors: Polish Christians Remember the German Occupation" (2004), Richard Lukas writes:
"The Germans killed their Polish victims in a variety of ways--shooting, gassing, hanging, torture, hard labor, lethal injections, beatings and starvation. The first victims of the gas chambers at Auschwitz were Poles and Russian POWs. The Nazi determination to obliterate the Polish intelligentsia resulted in wiping out 45% of Polish physicians and dentists, 40% of professors, 57% of attorneys, 30% of technicians, and a majority of leading journalists..." (p.9)
first days of occupation, the Nazis began a merciless and systematic
campaign for the biological destruction of the Poles. Polish POW's were
slaughtered; statues and cultural sites razed and 200,000 Polish
children with Aryan characteristics sent to Germany for
There was a general attack on Polish culture. Schools were shut down; use of the Polish language was banned, and in some places as many as half the clergy were murdered. (Lukas, 13)
The Jewish holocaust took place in the context of "Generalplan Ost" ("General Plan, East") the planned genocide of over 50 million Slavs, 75 % of the population of Nazi-occupied Poland, Ukraine and Russia. The Nazis intended to "Germanize" a few of the remaining 25%, and keep the rest as agricultural serfs who wouldn't even learn to read.
The Nazis managed to kill 20 million Russians including 7 million civilians by a variety of means. Three million Russian POWs died from bullets, deliberate typhus infection and starvation.
I deplore the persecution of people who question the details of the Jewish holocaust. Nothing casts more doubt than attempts to control free inquiry and speech. In my view, the die-hard's real objection is to the Zionist exploitation of the holocaust for political gain, i.e. the immunity from criticism and prestige it gives them.
They could neutralize its propaganda value by drawing attention to the pattern of Nazi-elite Jew collaboration (Judenrat, Jewish police, Zionist) and by talking about the Jewish role in Stalinist mass-murder. (See Below: "Stalin's Jews.") Essentially the Nazis and Communists were two branches of the same satanic cult that controls the world today. They were both conceived for the purpose of advancing the bankers' "New World Order" through war. Zionism is another branch.
The treatment of Jews in Nazi-occupied Europe depended on the changing Nazi relationship to host nations and allies. For example, the 5,000 Danish Jews were mostly unscathed because the Nazis wanted good relations with the Nordic Danes, and access to their farm produce. Unlike the Poles, the Danes were very protective of their Jews.
Nazi persecution was held in check as long as Hitler desired peace with England, or good relations with Russia. However the invasion of Russia June 22, 1941 signalled the beginning of a genocidal death-struggle. In this war zone, Slavs and Jews who were unfit for slave labor, (i.e. 70-90% of the total) were marked for extermination.
In the Nazi mind, all Jews represented the Bolshevik peril. "German National Socialism and Jewish Bolshevism could not coexist," German soldiers were told. "This is a war of extinction." There is simply no way Jews could escape the fate of Russians in general. By July 1942 the first extermination camps Belzec, Sobibor and Treblinka were opened.
During the winter of 1940-41, there were food shortages and public grumbling in Germany. The Nazis realized the food was the key to public support. According to historians Deborah Dwork and Jan van Pelt, the Nazis calculated that "tens of millions of Russians would have to die in order to safeguard German meat rations. German food would not go east to the invading army; rather [2.5 million] German soldiers would be fed at the expense of the local population." ("Holocaust: A History" p 265.)
The Nazis "looked to the east to become the breadbasket of New Europe...a true granary [characterized by] low density of settlement...prosperous farms and attractive small towns." They envisaged "the deportation of 41 to 51 million people which included 80-85% of all Poles...It was tacitly understood that they would be killed." (266)
Goring remarked to Italian Foreign Minister Ciano in Dec. 1941: "This year between 20 and 30 million persons will die in Russia of hunger. Perhaps it is well that it should be so, for certain nations must be decimated." (190)
At the same time, the Allies subjected the German civilian population to a murderous bombing campaign. In July 1943 in a Hamburg fire storm, 50,000 people died in "Operation Gomorrah." 800,000 fled the city in the aftermath.
World War Two was a time of unparalleled savagery and ethnic cleansing. I will not attempt a complete inventory here. The Romanians used the cover of war to kill 250,000 Jews at their own initiative. The Croats murdered 350,000 Serbs. The German army lost 4 million men killed and 4 million wounded. The Soviet army lost over 9 million dead and 18 million wounded. Civilian losses were 1.8 million in Germany and 11.5 million in Russia. China lost 20 million civilians.
The real holocaust was the war itself. The Jewish holocaust should be seen in this context. The injustice is focusing on the Jewish experience, which is racism in the name of anti-racism. It implies that only Jewish lives matter. Of course, this is part of a deliberate Jewish supremacist agenda.
The challenge is to mourn the Second World War as a collective tragedy for humanity and to recognize that it was perpetrated by the Judeo Masonic central banking cartel which controls the world. It wanted to destroy the enemies of "Jewish bankers," discredit concepts of race and nationalism, trauma-brainwash Jews to establish Israel, defeat the German people once and for all, expand Communism to Eastern Europe, brutalize and demoralize mankind and turn a profit, all at once.
The Allies could have prevented the German rape of Poland had they attacked Germany right away from the West. Germany had only 25 Divisions in the West compared to 110 French and English Divisions. But the goal always was to prolong the war and sacrifice Poland as a pawn in order to trap and destroy Germany in a two-front war.
As you can see, ordinary people cannot afford to embrace causes without first discovering the hidden agendas or consequences. Obviously we need to stop arguing about how many Jews died 75 years ago and focus on preventing World War Three and the NWO.
Major Robert H. Williams reported in his "Williams Intelligence Summary" for February 1950 about James P. Warburg's part in the plot against Christendom. He said: "Last November, the widow of the late General Ludendorff, on trial at Nuremberg, explained why her husband broke with Hitler, confirmed the reports in convincing detail.
She stated that, '...as early as the summer of 1929 James P. Warburg had undertaken an assignment from financial circles in America, which desired to exercise solitary influence on Germany in the unleashing of a national revolution. Warburg's task was to find the suitable man in Germany, and he entered into contract with Adolph Hitler who subsequently received sums of money amounting to 27 million dollars up to January 30, 1932, and still another seven million thereafter, enabling him to finance his movement.'"

"For all too many Jews, the Soviet Union was a land of promise. A significant part of the secular Jewish community in Poland greeted the Soviets as friends and collaborated with them in every way until the mid-1950s, thus contributing mightily to the destruction of Polish economy, culture, and population. Similar things could be said about the Polish-Soviet war in 1919, when mendacious gossip of "pogroms in Poland" was spread by Marxist and non-Marxist Jews in the West, to prevent the creation of a non-Marxist independent Polish state (Norman Davies, God's Playground, vol. 2, Columbia 1984, 262-3). In contrast, for Polish Christians the Soviet Union was, from the beginning, the country of the Gulag, a sworn enemy bent on destroying the Polish identity.
This aspect of World War II is virtually unknown in the United States. Here we touch upon an issue which is extremely sensitive and has to be approached not in the spirit of accusation but in the spirit of understanding. In Revolution from Abroad: the Soviet Conquest of Poland's Western Ukraine and Western Belorussia (Princeton, 1988), Professor Jan Gross says: "For the record, it must be stated unambiguously" that when the Red Army attacked Poland, it was welcomed by smaller or larger but, in any case, visible, friendly crowds in hamlets, villages, and towns. These crowds were largely Jewish ( Gross 29).
As I said in my article on the Katyn murders and the Warsaw Ghetto uprising (World War 2 and the Soviet People, edited by John & Carol Garrard, St. Martin's Press, 1993, 213-233), for Jews, the choice between Nazis and Soviets was clear. Throughout the war, a highly visible percentage of Jews in eastern Poland sided with the Soviets and not with the Poles. For Polish Christians, this was an act of treason.
