By checking encyclopedias, especially those printed before WW1, there is reason to believe that there could NEVER have been enough "jews" in the
world to have six million of them murdered by 1945.
In a 1959 book entitled WORLD JEWRY TODAY, lists in Table 1 on page 29 the Total Jewish Population in the world to be 12,603,387. Since this book was
printed 14 years after V-E Day, we must therefore assume that there were approximately 17-18 million Jews in the world before the Second World War to
have 6 killed.
If you were to go to an excellent university library and start with the oldest encyclopedias and read the entries for JEWS these are the numbers you
Chambers Encyclopedia 1875: "The entire number of J. in the world is reckoned variously between 3 1/2 and 15 millions. Taking the former estimate,
... The whole of Europe is supposed to contain 2 1/2 millions." Chambers Encyclopedia gives a range between 3.5 and 15 million, but uses the 3.5
million number as its breakdown source.
Can you find a possible six in there that MAY NEVER HAVE EXISTED? Let us continue comparing sources.
The American Cyclopedia of 1883, under the entry for HEBREWS, states: "The number of Jews in most parts of the world is hardly less than 6,000,000 or
more than 7,000,000." These numbers are both well inside the range from 1875; but what population growth must one segment of the population have to
go from 7 million in 1883 to 12 million in 1959? It seems reasonable to double in that time, but not with a loss of six million. What about the 8
MILLION Jews who disappeared in these eight years, why has no one created museums for them?
In the 1886 Chambers Encyclopedia we find: "The entire number of J. in the world is reckoned variously between 3 1/2 and 15 millions. A recent
estimate gives their number at about 7,000,000, of which total 5,500,000 are assigned to Europe, 250,000 to Asia, 750,000 to Africa, 300,000 to
America, and some 20,000 to Australia." It appears as though Chambers has gotten more accurate with its listing, but still fails to report about the
MISSING 8,000,000! And no one has cried for them, yet.
The 9th Edition of the Encyclopedia Brittanica v13 (1892) spends pages breaking down the history and census figures of Jews around the world and
concluded on page 687: "From the numbers of the Jewish population which we have given it results that there are about 5,000,000 Jews in Europe ...
The total Jewish population of the world would thus be 6,200,000."
In 1895 the Johnson's Universal Cyclopedia lists a grand total in a chart as 6,364,000. So it appears as though before 1900, it was a well
established fact in a variety of encyclopedias that the Jewish population in the world was between 6 and 7 million.
By 1910/1 the 11th Edition of the Encyclopedia Brittanica they had started to use the AMERICAN JEWISH YEARBOOK and other Zionist propaganda outlets
like the JEWISH ENCYCLOPEDIA as their source for statistics instead of the census figures from various countries/empires. Within 20 years from the
9th Edition (primarily by changing its sources) the E.B. reports 11,500,000 in the world! Almost a complete doubling of population just by changing
the source from census figures to a source created in the fervor of Herzl's International Zionist Congresses.
The American Jewish Yearbook is straight propaganda from the Zionist Congresses. It's first year of publication states that the Jewish population in
Romania was 300,000. It's second year stated 1,300,000. But in it's third year it lists 269,000 for Romania without a corrections area to the
extra million from the year before. Following this source through WW1 we find that no "JEW" died in WW1 according to this source.
Why should anyone believe this source in 1946, if they don't record ANY DEATHS of Jews during the years of fighting for WW1!?!
