David Hebden remarks on the interrogator of Rudolf Höss Thursday, March 20, 2003



The source of Höss's figures

FURTHER to my earlier letter, which sought to link the confession of Rudolf Höss to 2.5 to 3 million deaths at Auschwitz with the testimony of Pery Broad, I now think there is a more tangible connection:

1) A Major G I D Draper was the British Prosecutor at the Tesch & Stabenow trial.

2) In his autobiography, Höss recalled: "After some days I was taken to Minden-on-the-Weser, the main interrogation centre in the British Zone. There I received further rough treatment at the hands of the English public prosecutor, a major."

3) As pointed out by Robert Faurisson in his article "How the British Obtained the Confessions of Rudolf Höss", a photo published in the Tom Bower book, Blind Eye to Murder: Britain, America and the Purging of Nazi Germany -- A Pledge Betrayed (Granada: London, Toronto, Sydney, New York, 1981) portrayed a "Colonel Gerald Draper of the British War Crimes Group photographed as he finally secured the confession of Rudolf Höss, the commandant of Auschwitz, to the murder of three million people."

The conclusion that we are concerned here with one and the same person appears irresistible.
