Mr. Nix's recent article about the World Almanac's Jewish population figures needs some review, in my opinion. The original post had the following information:
Where Did Germany Get the Six Million Jews for the Holocaust?
World Almanac, 1940, pg. 129: World Jewish Population- 15,319,359
World Almanac, 1949, pg. 289: World Jewish Population- 15,713,638
World Almanac, 1996, pg. 646: World Jewish Population- 14,117,000
National Council of Churches 1930 - 15,600 ,000
American Jewish Committee Bureau of the Synagogue Council, 1939 - 15,600,000
World Almanac USA 1946 - 15,690,000
Statistical Handbook of Council of Churches USA 1951 - 15,300,000
My research indicates:
Jewish Population as recorded in the World Almanac
WJP = World Jewish population
AJC = American Jewish Committee
The prior statistics provided are misleading based on what the Almanac reveals. However, look at the numbers, and then please note my comments below.
The above table shows that the figure of 15,688,259 in the World Almanac of 1946 is really for the year 1939. Thus one must not conclude that the Jewish population was the same before the war (1935) and after the war, since the 1946 statistical figure is for 1939, prior to the war.
The first year in the Almanac where an after-war tabulation of the Jewish population is determined is in 1949. Here the World Almanac states on the authority of the American Jewish Committee that the World Jewish Population in 1947 is 11,266,600. This is a sizable drop from before the war. Let's do the math:
This is odd: 4,421,659 does not equal 6 million. It is 1.6 million less. Then why do the Jews say 6 million perished?
But wait, a very strange discrepancy occurs in the almanacs for 1946 and 1949 as they state their respective 1939 figures:
954,951 = around 1 million
So, when the AJC (or anyone else using the same statistics) calculated WWII Jewish losses using the 1949 figures, they would be about 1 million higher than before.
How did they arive at these two different figures? If we use the higher 1939 WJP number, then the total difference pre/post war is 5.4 million. I guess 5.4 is close enough to 6 million to call it 6 million. But by this time I think the game is up. There is a book titled The First Holocaust which states that the Jews were using the 6 million figure in pre-WWI days, apparently to obtain sympathy -- and, more importantly, money.
The real problem with all of the figures in the World Almanac is that the sole source for them is the American Jewish Committee, which is an anti-Christian, anti-Gentile, and anti-American organization. When you add those three things together, they sum up to massive disinformation.
May we not give heed to Jewish fables.
