The RAF bombed the last food train to Belsen, so the prisoners there were starving. The food train was probably bombed deliberately in order to create a opportunity for a photo op when the British Army liberated the camp. The Americans seem to have been prepared for a photo op. Eisenhower turned up with high-ranking psy-ops officers from Washington. The British intercepts from Belsen were no doubt decoded at Bletchley Park. So the British would have known the time and route of the food train.
The photos from Belsen are much worse than those from other camps, where the main problem was typhus, not starvation. The photos from other camps show prisoners who look reasonably well fed, while those who appear to be starved were suffering from typhus. The Belsen photo op played a major role in subsequently justifying what has been described as an unnecessary war. It should be added that, although there were allegations of gas chambers in the camps in Germany, it is now universally accepted that if there were any gas chambers at all, they would have been in Poland. However, the Poles themselves have admitted that Stalin built the Auschwitz gas chamber in 1946. The only traces of Zyklon B have been found in the blue-stained walls of rooms used for fumigating clothes in order to eliminate typhus.
Zyklon B was designed for fumigation, but was released too slowly to be suitable for executions. Deception is at the heart of the Jewish religion. The most important prayer of the Jewish year is Kol Nidre, which is a deceiver’s prayer. Judaism seems to be a psychopathic religion. In warfare, the first people to be deceived are the soldiers themselves.
