Ward Churchill Ignorant about Adolf Eichmann's Central Role in the Holocaust

Musical selections from Schindler's List

"Eichmann took a keen interest in Auschwitz from its founding and visited there on numerous occasions. He helped Höss select the site for the gas chambers, approved the use of Zyklon-B, and witnessed the extermination process." [full text]

Here is a short video about the NAZI war criminal Adolf Eichmann: Nazi Criminal Adolf Eichmann Sentenced to Death - 15/12/1961

A female college student got into a discussion with Ward Churchill [video] about what Adolf Eichman did in NAZI Germany during the Holocaust. Ward Churchill showed himself to be extremely ignorant or mendacious about Eichmann's role in the Holocaust. Probably both.

Ward Churchill characterized the people who died in the World Trade Center on 9-11 as "Little Eichmanns," but he was very offended that "brave" people anonymously use the internet tell other people how "wrong" they are even though the "brave" people don't know the people they are criticizing.

Ward Churchill seems to be suggesting that the criticism of him for his cruel words about the victims of 9-11 is unfair because people don't know him; however, it seems to me that Ward Churchill is always telling the whole world how wrong the "Little Eichmanns are, and he doesn't know them.

Ward Churchill is also fond of writing anonymously. He even writes articles, has other people sign them, and then cites his own ghost-written articles!

Ward Churchill!

Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye, with never a thought for the great plank in your own? Or how can you say to your brother, "let me take the speck out of your eye", when all the time there is that plank in your own? You hypocrite! First take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s. [Matthew 7:3 through 7:5]

When I watched this [video], I realized something about Ward Churchill's debating style. He argues by calling his opponent as well as his opponent's ethnic or religious group ignorant. Then he spews out a lot of made-up "facts" as if he is some big expert.

The young woman speaking in the video said she was confused about why Churchill called the people murdered on 9-11 "Little Eichmans."

The arrogant Churchill responded by belittling the young woman's education or intelligence, saying, "I'm sure that there's more than one thing confusing you [about my views]."

Churchill suggested that perhaps this bright young student did not even know who Eichmann was. When she told him that she knew who Eichmann was because she is Jewish, Churchill found fault with Jews and claimed that "a whole lot of Jewish people [mistakenly] thought [Eichman] ran Auschwitz."

In fact, Eichmann was an administrator at Dachau. He visited Auschwitz and involved himself in the decisions about the gas chambers at that huge death camp.

"Eichmann helped Heydrich organize the Wannsee Conference in Berlin during which Heydrich and Eichmann along with 15 Nazi bureaucrats planned the extermination of the entire Jewish population of Europe and the Soviet Union...Eichmann took a keen interest in Auschwitz from its founding and visited there on numerous occasions. He helped Höss select the site for the gas chambers, approved the use of Zyklon-B, and witnessed the extermination process. [full text]

The young woman said that Eichmann massacred Jews.

Churchill told her "no," that she was wrong about Eichman massacring Jews, although he was "accused by Israel of doing that." Churchill minimized Eichmann's crimes and claimed that Eichmann "primarily arranged train schedules."

This is disgusting. Adolf Eichmann was the person who organized the logistics for getting the Jews to the camps.

Churchill claimed that Eichmann wasn't accused of massacring Jews. He said there was one charge that he killed someone but that the person who made the accusation wasn't credible. In fact, Eichmann was convicted on all counts, including crimes against humanity and war crimes.

Churchill told the young students that they should read Eichmann in Jerusalem.

According to Wikipedia, Eichmann "was a high-ranking Nazi and SS Obersturmbannführer (equivalent to Lieutenant Colonel). Due to his organizational talents and ideological reliability, he was tasked by Obergruppenführer Reinhard Heydrich to facilitate and manage the logistics of mass deportation to ghettos and extermination camps in Nazi-occupied Eastern Europe....

In 1933 when the Nazis came to power in Germany, Eichmann returned to that country and submitted an application to join the active duty SS regiments. This was accepted, and in November of 1933, Eichmann was promoted to Scharführer and assigned to the administrative staff of the Dachau concentration camp....

In 1942, Reinhard Heydrich ordered Eichmann to attend the Wannsee Conference as recording secretary, where Germany's anti-Jewish measures were set down into an official policy of genocide. To this Final Solution of the Jewish Question Eichmann was tasked as Transportation Administrator, which put him in charge of all the trains which would carry Jews to the Death Camps in the territory of occupied Poland...

[I]n 1944, he was sent to Hungary [and] at once went to work deporting Jews and was able to send four hundred thousand Hungarians to their deaths in the Nazi gas chambers." [Full text]

It seems to me that Churchill is the one who doesn't know who Eichmann was.

Churchill falsely claimed that he has been tenured and the University of Colorado for 20 years.
