The Beate Klarsfeld Foundation was established to bring to justice Nazi criminals, to oppose crimes against humanity, to help Jewish people where persecuted, and to identify important documentation and preserve a historic record.
 2007-11-23 21:07:13 - PARIS (AP) -

President Nicolas Sarkozy on Friday awarded the country’s top honors to a Nazi hunter and her son. Beate Klarsfeld was made an Officer in the Legion of Honor — an award already given to her husband Serge, the country’s best-known Nazi hunter — in recognition of her tenacious search for war criminals, some of whom operated in France during World War II. “Germany and France are lucky to have you as a daughter,” Sarkozy told the German-born Klarsfeld, 68. Her son Arno was named Knight in France’s National Order of Merit. He notably represented the Sons and Daughters of Deported Jews of France in the 1998 trial of Nazi-era collaborator Maurice Papon, a former French budget minister convicted of complicity in crimes against humanity.

Arno Klarsfeld also worked closely with Sarkozy when he was interior minister, notably dealing with immigrant families who were in France illegally but had children in French schools.

“Courage, Conviction, Compassion, Decency, Justice, and Self-Sacrifice to the point of personal danger — these are the words that come to mind when one hears the name Beate Klarsfeld. … To Israel and the Jewish people, Mrs. Klarsfeld is a Woman of Valor — a title that has no peer in Jewish Tradition.”
  TELFORD TAYOR Former Chief U.S. Prosecutor at the Nuremberg Trials.
Wherever They May Be! is especially valuable because it explores and illuminates the continuing impact of Nazism on those too young to have experienced it during the Hitler period.”

Technique and operation of the gas chambers

Jean-Claude Pressac ©1989,
The Beate Klarsfeld Foundation
From WIKIPEDIA, the free encyclopedia:
"Pressac was originally a Holocaust denier who, with Robert Faurisson, attempted to disprove what he considered historically inaccurate depictions of the concentration camps Auschwitz and Birkenau as extermination camps. Upon visiting Auschwitz, however, Pressac was able to view first-hand the extensive archive of construction documents which had survived due to being located in the construction office rather than the administrative offices. These convinced him that his former views were in error, an event he describes in the postface of Auschwitz: Technique and operation of the gas chambers,"
The Jews: History, Memory, and the Present
A technical expert of this (somewhat sinister) kind of archaeology exists. His name is Jean-Claude Pressac, and his major work was published in New York"
"An interesting, if disturbing, resource Auschwitz: Technique and Operation of the Gas Chamber (1989) was written by Jean-Claude Pressac a Holocaust doubter who wanted to prove to himself and the world that the concentration and death camps really existed. It is a "scientific rebuttal of those who deny the gas chambers."

The Holocaust and the Neo-Nazi Mythomania
Serge Klarsfeld (Editor) ©1978
The Beate Klarsfeld Foundation - New York
Translated from the Original French
by Barbara Rucci

Febuary 22, 1979  
“The Holocaust and Neo-Nazi Mythomania is a documentary work. It consists of two studies — "The Launching of the Final Solution of the Jewish Question" and "Reply to the Neo-Nazi Falsification of Historical Facts Concerning the Holocaust." Sandwiched in between are extensive footnotes, letters and a bibliography relating to the genocide. Appended is a coup, a "first," the unabridged publication of two "Korherr Reports" in German and English.”

“It is an album filled with photographs of people on the edge of death, the new Jewish arrivals at Auschwitz in 1944. A young survivor found the album and, in it, her own photograph and those of her parents, grandparents and little brothers, now all dead. She kept the album for 36 years.
“It was not until three weeks ago that Serge Klarsfeld, a Nazi hunter, found Lili Jacob, now Mrs. Eric Meier, a waitress in Miami Beach, and told her the album was, in his words, "a holy document" containing all but three of the known photographs of the Jews at Auschwitz."  
“It has been said that there will never be people as innocent as the victims on the threshold of the gas chambers.”

Study of the Gassing at Natzweiler-Struthof
of 86 Jews Whose Bodies Were to Constitute a
Collection of Skeletons: A Photographic Document

Presented and Commented by
Jean Claude Pressac
Serge Klarsfeld (Editor) © 1985
The Beate Klarsfeld Foundation
Translated from the French by
Jan Green-Krotki
This book contains extremely graphic images that are not appropriate for young or sensitive readers

Copied from:
“In 1985 Jean-Claude Pressac published a book in the United States that revived the Jewish memory, and that of the medical experiments. The Struthof Album explained, with backing by documents, for the first time exactly how the Struthof gas chamber operated. The French translation, L’Album du Struthof : étude du gazage au Struthof de 86 juifs destinés à la constitution d’une collection de squelettes, appeared shortly afterwards.”

“Nous avions également à notre disposition pour réaliser ce travail quelques excellents ouvrages d'ordre général, à savoir entre autre des études de U.D.Adam sur les universités allemandes pendant le national-socialisme, de L.Kettenacker sur la politique nazie en Alsace, de M.H.Kater sur l'Ahnenerbe, de E.Klee sur l'euthanasie, de A.Mitscherlich sur le procès des médecins nazis, de J.C.Pressac et S.Klarsfeld sur The Struthof album, et de J.Ziegler sur ce même camp. Un atlas sur le troisième Reich de C.Zentner et F.Bedürftig nous a particulièrement aidé à nous orienter dans le dédale des administrations et des organisations nazies.”
