“Son of Saul” was released in the US

The week before Christmas seems an odd time to release a Holocaust movie, particularly one as macabre as Son of Saul. It is a Tale from “Inside the Gas Chamber of Auschwitz,” presumably Morgue 1 of Krema II and focuses on a Jewish Sonderkommando named, Saul Ausländer. One reviewer describes the movie thusly, “For most of the 107-minute fiction film, the camera remains fixed on the face of one inmate at Auschwitz-Birkenau as he races around the death camp trying to bury a boy he believes is his son.”

Other reviewers described the movie as, “A season in hell…devastating and terrifying…unimaginable and unthinkable horrors.”


Saul is played by Hungarian Geza Rohrig. Mr. Rohrig’s main talent is his amazing ability to have a fixed blank stare. Rohrig has utilized his talent to open a new dimension in Holocaust films, that of a “zombie robot.”

Mr. Rohrig described his role, “I had to be this zombie robotic living-dead person, and on the other hand, I couldn’t become boring, so I had to compensate with the persistence, the intensity.”

Unpleasant miracles and implausible actions
Saul’s racing around Auschwitz was the result of a double miracle. Miracle One was the amazing survival in the gas chamber of a boy. Miracle Two is that Saul thinks it is his own son. The fact that Saul shuffles the boy’s body around Auschwitz and finds a place to bury him without attracting notice of the Camp administration is on the level of moving a corpse through Grand Central Station without drawing attention, highly implausible but not quite a miracle.

Largely Blurred
As a Revisionist, I wondered if director Laszlo Nemes would show the “gas chambers.” We have heard of Steam Chambers, diesel Chambers, and Electric Chambers: What was Nemes going to claim? Unfortunately, the film is “Shot entirely in closeups of Saul’s face or his immediate surroundings as he and his fellow Sonderkommandos go about their daily business of leading prisoners to their death.” and “The film is shot mostly in a tight close-up on Röhrig, and blurs out much of the chaos and carnage that surrounds him.” and  “graphic content is largely kept blurred in the margins of the screen.”

Son of Saul
Protected from Cyanide.

This obscurity is by design. Nemes and his co-writer, Clara Royer, drew inspiration from the early Soviet propaganda stories, but said they wanted to avoid “the stuff of books”. The result becomes odd when Nemes trys to address some obvious technical problems with the Gas Chamber Story. For example Nemes has his Sonderkommandos wearing scarves, presumably to protect themselves from the cyanide gas, a danger pointed out by Professor Faurisson and other Revisionists. Nemes also creates rooms many times the size of the actual rooms in the Krema II building wherein furtive Sonderkommando can hold meetings to plan revolts.

Forced to watch yet another Holocaust Drama?

A Flop.
Released in Hungary on 11 June by Mozinet in 46 theatres (two on 35mm and 44 as DCP), Son of Saul had taken 19,913 admissions in seven days.
Despite amazing ballyhoo on the part of the media, the movie was a flop. It’s gross for the first 10 day of US showings was a mere $34,060 with a total gross of less than $100,000.

Son of Saul follows on an earlier movie about Sonderkommandos, The Grey Zone based on an “eye-witness account by Miklós Nyiszli. It was also a box office flop.

So Why Make Such Film?

The role of Sonderkommandos has always been a problem for Holocaust Believers. The Sonderkommandos were vital helpers of the Germans. Allegedly, they tricked half a million people, including their own wives and children, into the underground undressing room at Krema II, convinced them to take off all their clothes, then led them along a narrow passage, past a small area next to the elevator and dissecting room and into a gas chamber, in groups of 2,000 people. After a gassing that lasted 10-30 minutes, they waded into the corpse filled room, untangled the bodies, dragged them back to a small elevator, moved them up a floor, and cremated them. In most stories, they are well-fed, well-clothed, and warmly housed. The problem with this version of the Story is that it makes the Sonderkommandos into collaborators of the worst kind. As one journalist suggested, “the members of the Sonderkommando were, “half-victim, half-hangman.”

A Clarification

Géza Röhrig, reacted with anger to this suggestion.

“There has to be a clarification,” he said. “They are 100% victims.”  …”the Sonderkommandos had a terrible rap….it’s either ignorance or very insensitive to blame and point fingers in 2015″ Son of Saul simply changes the Story to explain the inexplicable behavior of the Sonderkommandos, behavior that did not and could not have happened. It is also an attempt to remove any perception of wrongdoing from the Jewish Sonderkommandos. To do this, Nemes produces a film which is an essay into degradation and violence, all in an attempt to explain the creation of his 100% Victim Zombie Robots.

Take a look around.

    If a country were hell-bent on genocide, WHY WOULD THEY KEEP RECORDS?? WHY would they build “camps” hundreds (if not thousands) of miles away with sanitary facilities, housing, recreational, medical and other ancillary facilities. Would it not have been easier to just “eliminate” them without going through all of this trouble? The jewish communist Bolsheviks did just that with the non-communist civilian populations of the conquered countries in the communist orbit.

    Something BIG “stinks” in this whole jewish “holocaust ™” deal. It is no secret that jewish Zionists made “deals” with the Nazis in order to make life “uncomfortable” for jewish Germans.

    The establishment of a “homeland” was a Zionist “dream” since the 1800s. What better way to encourage “emigration” to a barren land than to make things difficult for the “cream of German society” (jews)?? The TRUTH about the so-called jewish “holocaust ™” is out . . .

    The so-called jewish “holocaust ™” has been turned into a de-facto “religion” in which no deviation from orthodoxy is permitted. In fact, in most European countries, independent investigation into jewish “holocaust ™” truths is strictly forbidden under pain of fines and imprisonment. In the USA, things are not quite as bad, only job loss and personal and professional destruction at the hands of those of the “tribe” that FEAR the real truth of the jewish “holocaust ™” being exposed is evident.

    The truth about this minor event in human history will change much of the world’s perception about those that are using this event as a “cash cow” that “keeps on giving”. . . “there’s NO business like “SHOAH business”.
    Jewish complicity in this event is carefully “covered up”.

    It is curious to note that jewish interests will hunt down and imprison a 90 plus year-old German “camp guard” while looking the other way when their “own kind” was involved in truly brutal actions. Camp “capos” and “sonderkommandos” (who were primarily jewish) come to mind. Not one of these jewish “collaborators” has been brought to (jewish) justice. I guess blood is thicker than water.

    A good example of present-day censorship is the fate that awaits those that dare question “official” jewish “holocaust” orthodoxy. Most European countries have criminalized ANY line of thought that deviates from the “official” jewish “holocaust” story. WHY?? In fact, TRUTH is no defense when it comes to “all things holocaust”.
    Ask noted WW2 researcher David Irving, who was forced to recant TRUTH in order to avoid punishment. . .

    If people only knew of the planning that took place (among those of the “chosen”) to engineer the jewish “holocaust”, there would be a pogrom of massive size. You see, the jewish “holocaust” was necessary in order to force the establishment of a jewish state. In this case, the ENDS justified the MEANS. There have been many “holocausts” of much greater misery throughout human history, yet the jewish “holocaust” is the only one that counts . . .

    Most jews will never be satisfied with knowing that those that commit evil deeds on earth in this lifetime will pay for it in the next life . . . they have taken vengeance from the Creator and appointed themselves the exacter of vengeance (in contradiction to mosaic law but not their anti-gentile talmud).

    Most jews are vengeful people that will never pass up a chance to “make a buck” by screwing a gentile (goyim) out of money or property. jews were hated in Germany for taking advantage of the non-jew Germans between the two world wars. The average German did not have a pot to piss in while his wealthy jewish neighbor was trading food for land . . . taking advantage of the jewish bankster situation in Germany.

    Look at the “commercialization of the so-called jewish “holocaust ™” while the much larger communist (true) holocaust is conveniently forgotten. To assure a continuing supply of jewish “holocaust ™” “survivors”, jews are tattooing their ATM (oops, I mean “camp” numbers) on their children and grandchildren.

    Since the jews declared war on Germany in 1933 (yes, 1933), the Germans had no choice but to complete the Zionist plan of marginalizing German jews (to say the least).. This fulfilled the Zionist plan of forcing German jews to emigrate to Palestine while making the world grant jews a “homeland”–Israel.

    Zionists have been predicting a jewish “homeland” for the last two-hundred years while predicting a “holocaust ™” of 6 million for the same amount of time. The ACTUAL number of non-combatant deaths in the European theater of operations is approximately 731,000, NOT 6 million (official International Red Cross figures).

    Regarding that “holocaust ™” “showplace” Auschwitz, there are engineering inconsistencies in the design of the so-called “gas chambers”. The doors are not of a gas-tight design; it would have been impossible to retrieve the bodies, and there is no means to ventilate the rooms after the so-called “gassing” took place”. From an engineering standpoint, these are very serious errors that would have caused the deaths of the “operators” of these supposed “gas chambers”.
    American execution expert, Fred Leuchter travelled to Auschwitz, surreptitiously obtained samples from the purported “gas chambers”, had them tested and published his results. The absence of methylene blue in ALL of the samples, save one, was PROOF that the “gas chambers” did not exist. The one positive sample was taken from a room used to disinfect clothing.
    Mr. Leuchter was rewarded for his search for TRUTH by his professional and personal character assassination by those of the “tribe”. He lost all of his federal and state contracts, and was prosecuted under an obscure Massachusetts “law” for “practicing engineering without a license”–a law which had never been used before or since. . .

    It is no secret that after WW2, the Soviets attempted to “create” the “death camps” for propaganda purposes.
    The engineering inconsistencies proves that these “death camps” were recreated for communist propaganda purposes. Germans were excellent engineers, and as such, would not have made the engineering “mistakes” that are evident.
    Yes, there was extreme deprivation and suffering–many people perished. However, the prime cause of death was typhus. As allied bombings destroyed most of the infrastructure, typhus was at epidemic levels. THIS is what caused the massive amounts of human deaths . . .NOT gassing.

    After the end of WW2, these same “camps” were used to intern German civilians. These German civilians were subject to much greater deprivation and suffering than the previous “occupants” of these “camps”. In fact, jews were controlling these camps, at the behest of the Allied forces, and were vicious in their treatment of those interned. In fact, the German civilians interned were defined as “disarmed enemy combatants” despite being civilians, so that Geneva Convention rules would not apply to them.

    In fact, it was JEWS that ran the internment camps after WW2. I guess vengeance was theirs, as the Germans made the jews WORK (manual labor in the camps) for the first time in their lives…

    Although brief, as it must be, this description of events relating to the “holocaust” is very well done, accurate and clearly presented. I would like to know more about the suffering of the German civilians after the war – references I can access.
    Thanks for being there.

    Son of Saul seems to be pretty much a flop at the box office.
    It makes all those reviewers who praised the movie look more like
    tendencious promoters than honest critics.

    Total ticket sales are reported as $201,327.

    What is amazing is that this horrible, dishonest, and exploitative
    was partially paid for with funds from the Hungarian government.
