Smithsonian Red-Faced after “Treblinka Star of David Tiles” Shown to be Not Jewish At All

The Smithsonian Institutes’ TV documentary division has been severely embarrassed with the revelation that its recently-released “Treblinka: Hitler’s Killing Machine” documentary—which claimed to have “proved” the existence of “gas chambers” at Treblinka because of the discovery of “tiles with Stars of David,” is an extremely amateurish hoax.

The Smithsonian advertised the documentary on its YouTube Channel by saying that “The watershed discovery of Star of David tiles confirms the existence of Treblinka’s gas chambers and becomes the key to reconstructing the death camp’s sinister workings.”

The Smithsonian YouTube Channel announcement that “Star of David” tiles have been found at Treblinka which “prove” the “gas chambers” at the camp.

The documentary follows British forensic archaeologist, Dr. Caroline Sturdy Colls, from Staffordshire University and her colleagues as they carry out diggings on the Treblinka camp site in eastern Poland in an attempt to refute Holocaust revisionists who say that the camp was only used as a transit area and not as an extermination center.

The complete lack of any physical evidence that the camp was used for exterminating hundreds of thousands of people, has long been a great source of concern for orthodox historians, to the point where the Jewish Daily Forward newspaper admitted in a 2014 article that the “absence of physical evidence allowed Holocaust deniers to maintain that Treblinka II was a transit, not death, camp.” (“Uncovering the Remains of Treblinka,” Jewish Daily Forward, March 27, 2014.)

The Smithsonian documentary showed Colls and her colleague Ivar Schute digging in a ditch and finding four pieces of ceramic tile.

The narrator of the documentary then announces that “Dutch archaeologist Ivar has just uncovered an orange tile with a Star of David on the base.”

The camera then moves to a close-up of Colls and Schute handling the tiles. Schute tells Colls that he has uncovered “four tiles, three yellow ones and one red one.

“As you see, the Star of David on the bottom, which is quite remarkable,” Schute tells Colls and the camera, then asks her, “But have you ever seen the tiles?”

Colls replies “No” and then Schute goes on to say that these tiles “fit in with the idea that we are in the area of the gas chambers.”

Colls then says what “immediately springs to my mind is that witnesses who were allowed in the gas chamber and the area talked about the Star of David on the outside of the gas chamber building to build up the illusion that people were going to somewhere that was safe.”

On this basis—that tiles had “Stars of David” on them—the narrator of the video then asserts that “Treblinka eye-witnesses have identified tiles just like these.

“Now for the first time, Caroline and her team have hard evidence confirming the existence of the gas chambers,” the narrator adds.  (See the clip below for verification).

Unfortunately for the Smithsonian, Colls and Schute, the “Star of David” to which they refer is nothing of the sort.

Firstly, the symbol—a six pointed solid star, with a dot in its center, surrounded by a circle, and with a clear “D” letter to its right, is imprinted on the back of the tile—which means that wherever it would have been placed, the symbol would have been cemented onto the floor, and would not have been visible.

This makes Colls’s claim that the symbol was there to “make people think they were going somewhere safe” complete nonsense.

The terracotta tile excavated by Ivar Schute at the Treblinka camp, and wrongly identified by him, Colls and the Smithsonian as a “Star of David.” The symbol is in fact a brand mark of the 125-year-old old Dziewulski i Lange porcelain factory in Poland.

Furthermore, no “eye-witness” has ever claimed that there were Stars of David “inside a gas chamber” at Treblinka—only that there was a large Star of David over the “front door” of the gas chamber.

But, even worse for Colls, Schute, and the Smithsonian, the symbol which they all claim to be a “Star of David” is nothing of the sort.

It is in fact a brand mark of the 125-year old Dziewulski i Lange porcelain factory in Poland. That factory still exists, although it was renamed the Opoczno Terracotta Products Factory in 1950 and is today just called Opoczno S.A.

The company’s symbol is known in the heraldic world as a pierced mullet star, as is not unusual for porcelain marks and coats of arms around Europe.

It borders on the grossly amateurish for so-called “specialist archaeologists” like Colls and Schute to make such a basic error—and for the Smithsonian to then broadcast it to the world as “proof” of a “gas chamber.”

To make matters worse, Colls also knew that the tile was made by Dziewulski i Lange—because she mentioned that on her official website dealing with the excavations.

The farcical documentary does not end there: After excavating for hours on end, the “specialist archaeologists” finally earthed what they claimed were 40 bone fragments, which they immediately pronounced as evidence of “three mass graves.”

READ  London Crashing into Nonwhite Nightmare

The “specialists” then quickly decide to rebury the bone fragments because, as Colls asserts, all they will do is “find more” (an incredibly poor reason to stop the digging). She then claims that these bone fragments and tiles “prove that [the] Treblinka I camp [was] more than just labor camp.” Of course, it shows noting of the sort, and is merely a concoction of a series of ignorant mistakes and ungrounded assumptions.

A few hours later, digging in another spot, this time in the alleged “Treblinka II” camp, some brick and mortar foundations are discovered, and, without any further ado, the Smithsonian narrator announces that the team has “Confirmed the existence of the gas chambers and [has] confirmed their location.”

In reality, nothing of the sort has happened.

All that happened was that the “specialist archaeologists” have completely misidentified a tile brand mark, found what they claimed to be 40 bone fragments, a handful of assorted personal items and some foundations.

These finds do not “prove” anything—and this very poor “scholarship” has not only placed a large question mark over the team’s ability to intelligently interpret data of important historic significance, but will also have added fuel to fire of the revisionists who question the Treblinka story.

  1. – Staff comment: The tiles were not, as you allege, the “sina qua non” of the Smithsonian documentary. As can be seen from the advertising for the documentary– reproduced above in the story from the Smithsonian YouTube channel–they specifically claimed the the “Star of David” tiles “”proved” the existence of a “gas chamber” at Treblinka.
    It is you, not this story, which is using a straw man argument.
    Furthermore, the uncovering of some foundations at a site at which no-one disputes that there were buildings, is also not “evidence” of a “gas chamber” any more than ruins found at Delphi in Greece “prove” that Zeus existed. To quote yourself: the “embarrassment is on you.”

     
    1. I see no shoddy journalism here. The point of the article was not to show that Treblinka was not a death camp, but to address whether the tiles found were proof that it was such and whether the video voice-over and participants jumped to conclusions. The story has significant evidence to back up the latter point.

      The headline (“Smithsonian red-faced”) is perhaps excessive, but it is accepted in journalism that headlines are to be read in the context of the story. If the headline is boring, no-one reads the story.

       
  2. –Staff Comment: Please do not make up things which are not in the story. Nowhere does the story say, claim, or insinuate, that the Smithsonian has “retracted their statement.” You have simply invented that claim.
    Certainly they are red-faced at being caught out at such an amateurish mistake–of claiming company pottery brand marks are “proof of gas chambers”–and it will be interesting to see what they do in the coming days. After all, it is not often that the Smithsonian is caught out in such a poor lie.

     
  3. Compare this with the thousands of bones fragments that still turn up yearly on the Battlefields of World War 1 and World War 2 as opposed to the handful of dodgy bones fragments that turned up at a place where it is said 1 Million died.

     
  4. Ms. Sturdy-Colls’ findings along with this story were discussed at length on Carolyn Yeager’s The Heritc’s Hour podcast last night. Forensic chemist Germar Rudolf and Dr. Fredrich Toben discussed inconclusive GPR (Ground Penetration Radar) and bore sample studies previously conducted at Treblinka. Both men who have spent time in prison for their sketipticism about the received history of the Holocaust discussed the legality in Poland (and the Eurosphere) of the outcome of Ms. Sturdy-Colls study. She would have broken laws and lost her career if she had concluded that Treblinka was a transit camp not a “death camp.” Thank you for this article.

     
  5. The Star of David fiasco actually pales into insignificance when compared with another piece of dishonesty in this documentary which has not yet been covered here.

    Whilst waiting for permission to investigate T2 Caroline digs some trenches at a site just south of the T1 penal camp. What the programme makers and Caroline do NOT tell their viewers is that she is actually digging in a location which is KNOWN to be a graveyard. It is therefore hardly surprising she found some bones.

    This fraudulent documentary is currently being eviscerated at the RODOH forum:

    http://rodoh.info/forum/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=1691

     
  6. The way one would go about a real forensic investigation would be how the Germans did theirs at the Katyn forest, the site where 1000s of Polish upper ranks were systematically shot one by one in the back of the head by the Russians.

    As with every other alleged investigation into alleged Holocaust sites we are told by all the various reports that care was taken as to not disturb the ‘graves’ according to Jewish law. The fact is they would be CRIME SCENEs not subject to any ethnic law. Yup, you can bet that anyone who tells you they can’t expose the alleged crime scene because of Jewish law knows they wouldn’t find anything, meaning they know it’s all a lie. It’s a big, giant, huge in your face.

     
  7. Careful what you say and where you say it! It is illegal in many European countries including France & Germany to even question any accepted ‘facts’ about the holocaust!

    Even the figure that 6 million jews were murdered in death camps. Never mind the original 6 million figure included 4.5 million gassed aft Auschwitz. This figure has now been officially reduced to 1.1 million.

    So why has the ‘official’ 6 million never been reduced by the 3.4 million accepted difference to 2.6 million?

     
    1. France, Germany are “BASTION OF DEMOCRACY, FREEDOM, & FREE SPEECH with one exception TRUTH ! Because TRUTH IS HATE SPEECH, THEREFORE TRUTH IS BANNED BY THE HUMAN RIGHT COMMISSION, THE “INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY” & WORLD…..

       
    2. The “Real Holocaust” was the actual bombings of US and Allied forces. Dresden, Hamburg, Berlin, Japan’s two cities as well as the 1000 Sorties that burned alive 16 square miles of Tokyo’s civilian’s to death.

      The above bombings started in October when many German’s had filled their basements with coal & coke and that ignited the firestorms that would follow. Cooking pans can been seen in old WWII photos melted in pools from the intense heat.

      This would under the auspices of Communism later kill Million’s in Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia as well as the US lead genocides in East Timor, Guatemala, Chile, Iraq and so on. As long as “EVIL” is the alleged target American’s comprised of predominately Christian’s will and have Murder 30,000,000 since Korea (Mostly Civilian’s) as they built the now crumbling Empire of LIES.

      Only through American Exceptualism can one believe that America and who’s President awarded a Peace Prize who is currently bombing in 7 Countries that have NEVER attacked the USA and who the USA with YOUR TAX DOLLARS funds the very groups they like the former Mujaheddin of Afghanistan are trying to kill because of CIA’s BLOW BACK.

      Just as in the Ukraine where as Million’s of American’s STARVE, lost homes and credit due to TRILLION’s in Banking and Mortgage Fraud, 97,000,000 Jobless i.e. 1/3 of America… Also as our Veteran’s die either directly or by Suicide (22 a day) that Corporate America is pulling the strings as they strip the wealth of America and other countries for the IMF, FED and World Banking that hold the US DOLLAR as a GOD.

      Thankfully BRICS is the answer to this hegemony and the mighty EMPIRE is going to crumble. Yet all things BUILT on LIES eventually does.

      Sadly American’s are too worried about Justin Bieber and whether he was “PUNKED” while in Jail or the photos of some STAR on Hollywood to give a damn about this Country or its future. Media plays a part in the SWINDLE of AMERICAN’S.

       
    3. The well-known TV host Larry King has stated that the number of Jewish people killed by the Nazis was seven million. I wonder if this deviation from the standard figure puts him in jeopardy in nations that punish any questioning of it.

      beciaese there’s more compenstation in 6 tha 1.

      Too many politicians require jewish funding for elections. No one will police real figures

      Can you imagine public reaction if they find out that the whole thing was a lie?

       
  8. Well, easy solution.
    The Euro-eunuchs will simply make it illegal to mention this fake find (how many times) and perhaps even make it illegal for the neutered Europeans to even mention the old Dziewulski i Lange porcelain factory.

    Now repeat after me -six million times..

    Treblinka was a death camp. . . .that was proved when they found all the evidence of the buried bodies using ground penetrating radar, the standard tool of law enforcement all over the world when looking for buried bodies.

    ‘cept they didn’t find any bodies !! In fact the radar works by finding disturbed earth & they didn’t even find THAT – thus negating the back up story of “the Nazis dug the bodies up & moved them” when results don’t go the Holohoaxers way.

    Oh they found some foundations to the gas chamber did they. . . .and how do we KNOW that’s what it was.. Has residue of cyanide been found? any cyan blue staining??

    Slowly but surely the holoco$t is being picked apart and exposed for what it is – a “oh the poor Jews – we have to let them wipe out the SEMETIC Palestines and steal their land” – an excuse for their behaviour which has seen them thrown out of cities and countries for at least the last 1500 odd years

     
    1. At the Tel Aviv show trial of John Demanjuck who was accused of being ‘Ivan the Terrible’ of Treblinka the Judge asked if he could see a photograph of the Camp.

      A rough transcript of what followed is below:

      When he was shown one he was puzzled; he asked, ‘what is this?

      ‘It is a photo of a model of Treblinka, your honor’

      ‘Why am I not shown a real photo of Treblinka?’ the Judge asked

      ‘Because none exists, your worship’

      ‘Who made this model?’

      ‘The Israeli Police made the model, your Honor’

      ‘Okay, so what is this model based on?’

      ‘It’s based on the memory of Treblinka by a survivor, your honor’

      ‘Can you see to it this survivor appears before this court?’

      ‘That presents some difficulties, your honor’

      ‘What difficulties?’

      ‘The survivor is dead, your honor’

      ‘Good grief!’

      The accused stood behind his bullet proof glass shield grinning like a goat in a garden. He was acquitted but hounded to his death for the next 30 years.

       
      1. This truly is the shame that is difficult to understand, to hold the world captive, to create unconstitutional laws and prevent investigations and then destroy people who are curious about the facts and the truth, is simply incomprehensible. The betrayal is unforgivable! How could a collective come together and destroy lives, scapegoat innocent people and persecute anything that stand in the way of an unrealistic and immoral goal, and then have the audacity to accuse others of hate? Where is the honor when it reeks with disgrace and yet there is a pile on of the same nonsense and a collective hardening where there can be no remorse because they and not world are the victims. From Adolf Hitter The Founder of Israel, 1974, Hennecke Kardel writes,

        “Shortly after the turning point of the War, the December 1941 catastrophe at Moscow, on January 20, 1942, in a Villa of the Berlin’s suburb Wannsee, a conference was held on the “Final Solution of the Jewish Question”, presided over by the proudly chest bearing Commander-in-Chief of the German Security Police, half- Jew Reinhard Heydrich, who declared that he is in charge of the whole operation. In addition to Eichmann were present representatives of Rosenberg’s Ministry of the Occupied Territories, of Frank’s General Guberniya in Poland, as well as of the Interior and Foreign Ministries. The task of the operation was outlined by Heydrich:

        (a.) to prepare for an increasing emigration of Jews;
        (b.) to guide the stream of moving emigrants;
        (c.) in certain cases to accelerate the emigration process. .He called this “the goal of cleaning the German living space of Jews in legal ways.”

        What is never mentioned is the fact that the Zionist had an agreement with the Nazi to immigrate rich Jews to Palestine. The Zionists did this in secret, they lied to their own people, they betrayed the Nazis, the scapegoated the Germans, attacked the British and they lied to the entire world to hide all their lies, and crimes. See Klaus Polkehn’s “The Secret Contract: Zionism and Nazi Germany 1933-1941” that produced the Haavara Agreement:

        “The first days of Nazi domination in Germany also brought about the beginning of economic collaboration between fascists and Zionists…The Haavara negotiations of 1933 were one of the occasions of Zionist history over which a veil has been drawn.”

         
  10. Thank you for exposing the phony archeology performed to serve ‘Holocaustianity’. The record of Treblinka’s commandant,Odilo Globonik (who wasn’t German), is a sordid one, which although long ago, the US and UK governments would rather conceal; see Gregory Douglas 3 volumes “The Interrogation of Gestapo Mueller”, an eye opening history the Bush administration tried to suppress, and although initially a bestseller, banned in Khazar occupied Germany. We look forward to the Smithsonian doing a piece on the current Israeli war crimes in Gaza and Syria.

     
  11. Here in Canada, it is extremely dangerous to express not only public doubt about the Holocaust — but even to decry to brutality of recent events in Gaza. The government is entirely in the pocket of Greater Israel. Since we live in a time of total cover-up of so much truth, and since so many ‘professionals’ in academia, media, government, the science and medical establishments, and businesses of all kinds, are all complicit in the tyranny, an honest person must either starve or compromise. Personally, I regard myself as garbage, and I can barely stand looking in the mirror every day.

     
    1. Don’t ya love living in a “free” western democracy,where you have the “Freedom of Speech” not like in the bad, bad, Russia of the bad, bad, Putin??

      USA ! USA ! USA ! USA ! USA ! USA !

      BTW They HATE OUR FREEDOM !

       
  12. I do not wish to express an opinion here about gas-chambers anywhere, one way or another, but my recollection, if correct as I made no recording of the TV program, is that Colls was told by the American Chief Rabbi of Poland that she was not to dig into the sacred area where Jewish bodies were buried. A main presumed objective of the forensic archaeology was thereby frustrated from the outset, and open-minded viewers must draw their own conclusions.

     
  13. CSC refuses to answer the following very simple questions about Treblinka – despite the fact that she can earn thousands of dollars in reward money from – The National Association of Forensic Historians ( http://www.nafcash.com ) for doing so:

    Part Five – Treblinka II Questions – (What do we know for certain about the claimed / alleged / insinuated mass graves / physical evidence at Treblinka II?):

    #31 – Is it known – with the utmost certainty – that; during WW II, Germany actually constructed and administered a camp called Treblinka II – Yes. – or – No. – ??

    #32 – Is it known – with the utmost certainty – that; during the period of time in which the Germans are said to have administered the Treblinka II camp, at least one human corpse was actually buried in a grave that was located within the boundary of the camp – Yes. – or – No. – ??

    #33 – Is it – True. – or – False. – that; archaeologists / forensic investigators have searched for extant graves within the boundary of the Treblinka II camp – using modern geophysical / forensic science technology – ??

    #34 – Is it known – with the utmost certainty – that; at least one extant grave has actually been located / proven to exist within the boundary of the Treblinka II camp – which currently contains scientifically verified human remains that were buried during the period of time in which the Germans are said to have administered the camp – Yes. – or – No. – ??

    #35 – It is known – with the utmost certainty – that; as of – 3 / 15 / 15 – no more than and no less than __?__ extant graves have actually been located / proven to exist within the boundary of the Treblinka II camp, in which legitimate archaeologists / forensic investigators have, via bona fide, verifiably honest and conclusively documented forensic science, literally / actually – physically unearthed / tangibly located – scientifically verified human remains.

    #36 – After measurement with verifiably accurate measuring devices and honest techniques, it is now known – with the utmost certainty – that; (measured from ground level) the deepest extant grave identified in the answer given to question #35 – has a depth of: __?__.

    #37 – After measurement with verifiably accurate measuring devices and honest techniques, it is now known – with the utmost certainty – that; the most voluminous extant grave identified in the answer given to question #35 – has a volume of: __?__.

    #38 – It is known – with the utmost certainty – that; at Treblinka II, archaeologists / forensic investigators have literally / actually – physically unearthed / tangibly located – the remains of at least 19 people in __?__ of the 11 claimed / alleged / insinuated extant “huge mass graves” that are identified in the map linked to below.

    #39 – As determined by legitimate archaeologists / forensic investigators – via bona fide, verifiably honest and conclusively documented on-site archaeology / forensic science, it is now known – with the utmost certainty – that; the extant “huge mass grave” that has actually been located / proven to exist within the boundary of the Treblinka II camp – which has the most conclusively documented scientifically verified human remains currently in it – is: grave # __?__.

    #40 – As of – 3 / 15 / 15; archaeologist Caroline Sturdy Colls has located / proven the existence of __?__ extant graves within her claimed boundary of the Treblinka II camp.

    Remember, legitimate scientists / archaeologists do not fear answering pertinent questions about their claimed discoveries! If the so-called “scientific proof” for the existence of these phantom “huge mass graves” really does exist – as is deceptively insinuated – then the numerous cash rewards offered by The N.A.F.H. (which total up to $100,000.00) would be claimed by the dissembling defenders of this big-lie – in a heartbeat.

    What is Colls waiting for?

    What is she so afraid of?

     
  14. 1.6 million and all they can find is a few bones and some tiles? Calculate how much wood it would take to burn the bodies of 1.6 million people, even with a professional gas crematorium many bone parts still have to be crushed. The numbers and stories do not add up.

     
  15. Jerry: “The tiles were never the sine qua non of this story” OK, but why then a video of presentation of “Treblinka: Hitler’s killing machine” which has the title “Excavating a Secret Gas Chamber” presented by Smithsonian Channel has as text of description:
    “The watershed discovery of Star of David tiles confirms the existence of Treblinka’s gas chambers and becomes the key to reconstructing the death camp’s sinister workings.”
    Aren’t those “Star of David tiles” the key of all that stuff, the material proof of the existence of “gas chambers” according to Smithsonian?

     
  16. What is really sad if not criminal is the fact that no more then 10 minutes ago did I finish watching the same program in question on the Smithsonian channel. Today’s date is 2/08/2016!! If these so called facts have been proven false then why is this program allowed to constantly be shown to people as proof of gas chambers and death camps? This program is being allowed to air almost a full 2 YEARS after the so called evidence is proved false! WHY and who continues to allow this?
