Air Photo Evidence

John C. Ball, 'Air Photo Evidence'

I remember the day when I held John C. Ball’s seminal 120pp. oversize book Air Photo Evidence (1992) in my hands. It blew my mind. Who could possibly resist the convincing power of air photos mainly taken by Allied war planes over sites claimed to have been the locations of Nazi mass murders? After the Leuchter Report, I think it was this very work which struck the most fatal blow to the orthodox Holocaust narrative. For the first time this work made accessible for the general public numerous photos taken by Allied and German reconnaissance airplanes during the war. And the best of it all was that Ball thoroughly and expertly analyzed these photos, explained them to the lay reader, and brought them into a comprehensible context. Due to its massive size, it has never been posted online. Finally, here it is:

Post Scriptum

In early 2004, the British National Collection of Aerial Photographs published a press release claiming that it has in its archive an air photo of the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp of Aug 23, 1944, showing evidence of the mass murder allegedly going on there at that time (echoed, for instance, by the German news magazine Der Spiegel, Jan. 19, 2004). The photo can be seen here.

In my book Lecture on the Holocaust I have analyzed this and other air photos (pp. 156-164, here p. 159) and have juxtaposed them to what we should see if the eyewitness claims, and based upon this the orthodox Auschwitz narrative, were true. Result: the photos actually prove the opposite of what orthodox scholars claim. Read it, and judge yourself! (My book can be download as a free PDF file here).
