Between April 29, 1942, and November 3, 1943, Jewish prisoners were the overwhelming majority of prisoners registered at Majdanek. Recent research indicates that the SS deported between 74,000 and 90,000 Jews to the Majdanek main camp (excluding subcamps).
The SS killed tens of thousands of Jews at Majdanek. The majority of them arrived in Majdanek as forced laborers and either died as a result of the brutally inhumane living conditions or were killed in the gas chambers after the Germans determined that they could no longer work. Majdanek’s gas chambers were also used to kill prisoners from other camps in Lublin, such as the Lipowa Street camp in Lublin, who were no longer able to work. Some Jewish victims were killed in the gas chambers upon arrival, though presently available documentation does not permit estimates. Many, however, were killed in shooting operations. Many others died of disease, starvation, exposure and overwork.
In late July 1944, as Soviet forces approached Lublin, the Germans hastily evacuated Majdanek. The SS had evacuated most of the prisoners to concentration camps further west during the spring of 1944. Soviet troops captured Lublin and liberated Majdanek on July 24. The Germans did not have time to dismantle the camp entirely. Captured virtually intact, Majdanek was the first major concentration camp to be liberated. Soviet officials invited journalists to inspect the camp and evidence of the horrors that had occurred there.
During the Agudat Israel congress in Vienna, apart from Daf Yomi, Shapiro announced one more project concerning the creation of a modern Talmudic academy. Lublin was selected for its site because of its venerable traditions. A yeshiva had functioned there from the 16th century, and its sages became the patrons of the planned academy.
Mr. Fred Leuchter, Scientist, Engineer, U.S. Gas Chamber Expert
"In early 1988, Leuchter and his team carefully investigated the so-called gas chambers at first, the Auschwitz main camp, second, the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp, which is supposed to have been the most terrible Nazi extermination center, and, third, the Majdanek camp near Lublin, where the Allies claimed at Nuremberg that a million and a half people were killed. As an expert witness testifying under oath in April 1988 in the second Zündel trial, and in his published report of his on-site investigation, Fred Leuchter explained in detail that the supposed gas chambers at Auschwitz, Birkenau and Majdanek could not possibly have been used to gas people as alleged.
Leuchter's findings demolish the core of the Holocaust legend -- the Auschwitz gassing story. British historian David Irving found Leuchter's forensic investigation so compelling that, as he has publicly acknowledged, it was a major factor in persuading him finally to reject the Holocaust extermination story."
My comment about the supposedly gas chambers:
"None of the facilities could have supported multiple executions utilizing hydrogen cyanide. The Jews claim 6 million Jews were gassed in 3 years. There was no technology to execute 6 million Jews in the 1940s."
Mr. Fred Leuchter responded on February 23, 2014:
"Patricia, We haven't that technology today. If I were to try that and I had a leak, which is most likely, I'd kill half of the people in the area including myself."
Jews were writing about "6 Million Jews" being killed back in 1915, before anyone ever heard of Hitler! Watch this video for proof!

The Total Tutor will interview author J Dylan Yates author of he Belief in Angels is a riveting page turner, set in Boston and New York. It follows the two intersecting stories of Jules Finn and her grandfather, Samuel Trautman––two wounded souls, one struggling to survive her childhood with her sanity intact, the other haunted by memories from his past. Growing up in a volatile hippie family on a tiny island off the coast of Boston, Jules’s imaginative sense of humor is the weapon she wields as a defense against the chaos of her home life ––until her younger brother Moses dies. It's a blow from which Jules may never fully recover. Jules’s grandfather, Samuel, wants to help his grandchildren, but he’s wrapped up in a sad story of his own. Once called Szaja, Samuel is an orthodox Jew who lived through the murderous Ukranian pogroms of the 1920s, as well as the Majdanek Death Camp—but his survival came at an unspeakable price. Together, Jules and Samuel must decide whether to surrender to the grief that threatens to destroy them, or find the strength to swim for the surface.

The Lion of Judah (2012), a documentary written and directed by Matt Mindell, tells the story of Holocaust survivor Leo Zisman. Hoping that his horrific suffering can help the next generation better understand what happened, Zisman leads a group of young adults on a journey back to Poland and through humanity’s darkest period. Inspired by the strength of Leo, The Lion of Judah’s powerful message encourages viewers to remember the past and use it to change the world for the better. In film, the group retraces the tragic path Zisman was forced to travel, from the Warsaw Ghetto where he was separated from his family to the Stutthof concentration camp. From there he was sent to Auschwitz, where he survived the war. The group visits Majdanek and other concentration camps throughout Poland. Woven within the context of Leo’s tragedy, the film features trip participants who speak of their own search for answers and identity. Eric Gorenstein, whose father was a concentration camp survivor. Young Poles are also asked their opinions of Jews and the Holocaust, some sadly unchanged from their parents and grandparents deep-rooted anti-Semitic feelings. As the film analyzes viewpoints, it is discovered that the Holocaust is not a thing of the past. Mindell, the Executive Director of the Jewish Enrichment Center in Manhattan, was a producer of The Lion of Judah along with Joe Kavitski, who also served as a cinematographer on the trip. Kavitski, a non-Jew, was so moved by his experience that he has since taught middle school students in the United States about the Holocaust.
