The Numerology & Theology of the Six Million Number

By John "Birdman" Bryant


As we all know, the Orthodox Jewish Version of the Holocaust (OJV) claims that the nazis killed 'six million' Jews.

This is not only false, but it is a gross and vicious lie, and I am going to prove it.

However, please do not misunderstand me -- I am not saying that most people are lying when they express a belief in the Six Million. There are many honest people who believe it, and in fact believe it so strongly that they will regard anyone who questions it as somewhere between demented and evil. But belief in something does not make it true.

Now I said above that I was going to prove that the Six Million is a lie, but let us first note that the Six Million number is now officially recognized as wrong. This we can verify by noting that the death claims for Auschwitz, the largest nazi concentration camp, have been reduced from the original 4 million to 1.1 million, which, logically speaking, reduces the Six Million to just three million. This reduction was formally recognized by a change of the plaques at Auschwitz which made the death claims, a picture of which may be seen HERE (scroll down to the bottom). As it happens, the 1.1 million is still a gross exaggeration, but it nonetheless represents a major victory for the Holocaust revisionists -- often somewhat-inaccurately called 'Holocaust deniers' -- and a major defeat for the supporters of the OJV.

The Holocaust revisionists have long noted that the claims of the OJV have little evidence in favor of them, and a tremendous amount of evidence against them. In my view, this constitutes a powerful refutation of the OJV; and for those who are interested, a good summary of revisionist work will be found HERE. Furthermore, the corpus of Holocaust revisionism makes clear that the OJV is a lie, but this conclusion must be reached by putting all the strands of revisionism together, and seeing that the OJV does not just represent a collection of inaccuracies or mistakes, but rather a congeries of deliberate falsifications. There is a much quicker way, however, to see that the OJV -- and specifically the Six Million -- is a lie, and this is to observe that in TWO other instances long before WW2 it was claimed by Jewish Establishment sources that 'six million Jews' were suffering abuse. The first claim is found in the 1902 edition of the Encyclopedia Britannica in the article on Antisemitism, wherein it is claimed that "... there are in Russia and Rumania six millions of Jews who are being systematically degraded...". The page on which this quote appears is reproduced HERE. The second pre-WW2 claim of the Six Million appeared in the American Hebrew of Oct 31, 1919, p 582, in which the former governor of New York, Martin H Glynn, claimed that "The crucifixion of Jews must stop!" (note the Christian symbolism) and that "six million human beings are being whirled toward the grave by a cruel and relentless fate".

Now in case the logical implications of the above material have managed to escape the reader, let me put it bluntly: If there is a seemingly-factual claim of 'six million Jewish deaths' (or near-deaths) in three entirely different historical contexts, then this is simply too big a coincidence to be believable -- three events within a half century, each of which involves six million Jewish deaths (or near deaths) is wildly improbable; and in fact, even ONE event involving as many as six million deaths is itself difficult to believe without extraordinary proof. Thus it is clear that what we have in the 'six million' claims are not three factual reports of historical events, but rather three cases of people 'crying wolf' in order to gain attention and sympathy. And that, if I may be so bold as to say so, is irrefutable proof of the fact that the 'Six Million' is a lie.

But if we can partly explain the Six Million situation as one of crying wolf (Ironically, Hitler was strongly associated with the wolf), it remains to explain where the six million number came from. The answer is evidently that it is rooted in Jewish scripture or Kabbalism. To explain, consider the Jewish practice of gematria:

"In Jewish mysticism, [gematria] is a traditional system of associating numbers with Hebrew letters for the purpose of discovering hidden meanings in words. This is accomplished by systematically associating letters with numbers and then finding other words with similar numbers. These latter words are regarded as comments on the original words. Systems related to the Hebrew implementation of gematria are still used." --

With the above in mind, consider the following three items, sent to me by correspondents:

Item 1: Jewish prophecies in the Torah require that 6 million Jews must "vanish" before the state of Israel can be formed. "You shall return minus 6 million." That's why Tom Segev, an Israeli historian, declared that the "6 million" is an attempt to transform the Holocaust story into state religion. Those six million, according to prophecy, had to disappear in "burning ovens", which the judicial version of the Holocaust now authenticates. As a matter of fact, Robert B. Goldmann writes: ". . . without the Holocaust, there would be no Jewish State." A simple consequence: Given six million Jews gassed at Auschwitz who ended up in the "burning ovens" (the Greek word holocaust means burned offerings), therefore, the prophecies have now been "fulfilled" and Israel can become a "legitimate state".

Item 2: Regarding the 'six million' number you should know the following: In the Hebrew text of the Torah prophesies, one can read "you shall return". In the text the letter "V" or "VAU" is absent, as Hebrew does not have any numbers; the letter V stands for the number 6. Ben Weintraub, a religious scientist, learned from rabbis that the meaning of the missing letter means the number is '6 million'. The prophesy then reads: You will return, but with 6 million less. See Ben Weintraub: "The Holocaust Dogma of Judaism", Cosmo Publishing, Washington 1995, page 3. The missing 6 million must be so before the Jews can return to the Promised Land. Jahweh sees this as a cleaning of the souls of the sinful people. The Jews must, on the return to the Promised Land, be clean -- the cleaning shall be done in burning stokes.

Item 3: "In his address to the [2006 Iran Holocaust revisionist] conference he [Rabbi Moishe Arye Friedman, chief Rabbi of the Orthodox anti-Zionist Jewish Community in Vienna, Austria] stated that the founder of Zionism, Theodor Herzl, already spoke in his first diaries of a number of six million Jews who were allegedly threatened in Europe and that, according to Herzl, the so-called Jewish state would only have a chance if there was a disaster for these six million European Jews ... [He also observed] that the Bolshevists and the British government already used the six million figure in their war propaganda against Germany during the first world war. He further talked about the collaboration between the Nazis and the Zionists, and added that he was sure that the last word about the real or actual number of the victims had not yet been spoken, mentioning that in 1990 the number originally specified of four million victims of Auschwitz had been reduced to approximately 900,000 to 1.1 million whilst the six million figure remained unchallenged. --Source document:

In short, it appears that the six million number is some kind of scriptural or kabbalistic justification for the establishment of the state of Israel. This is a matter of some importance, because religious Jews are deeply divided on the scriptural legitimacy of Israel, and in fact there are many religious Jews who actively oppose the Israeli state. Obviously the Zionists, whose work in establishing Israel began in earnest at the end of the 19th century, felt a need to attract orthodox Jews to their cause, and perhaps this was the reason why the earliest reference to the 'six million' which has so far been discovered appeared around that time.
