German Soldiers and Jewish Holocaust Victims: Like Sheep to the Slaughter
Read about it in Koenigsberg’s revolutionary
Nations Have the Right to Kill: Hitler, the Holocaust and War
A limited number of copies still available at a special, discount rate.
What do German soldiers sent to the Western Front in the First World War have in common with Jews sent to death camps in the Holocaust (see photos to the right)?

Dr. Richard Koenigsberg suggests that in each case, innocent human beings were delivered to an unknown destination—where there was a high probability they would be slaughtered.

What we witness, Koenigsberg says, is a profound betrayal of trust, an experience that in each instance acted to shatter belief in the goodness of society and its leaders: human beings were transported “like sheep to the slaughter.”

This observation may seem novel at first, but like many of Koenigsberg’s insights—as Ruth Stein observes—the idea is “startling all the more for being self-evidence once it has been absorbed.”

The boxcars that transported Jews to their deaths in the Holocaust were the same boxcars that transported German soldiers to their deaths in the First World War.
