Rohrbach Commission Report?

Rohrbach Commission Report?

Postby wmfinck » Tue Sep 13, 2016 12:05 pm

I recently received this inquiry, and have not been able to help with it. Maybe someone here knows something more.

I have been reading about the indescribable Satanic horrors of the Bolshevik terror against Christians and have become aware of the findings of the Rohrbach Inquiry, which was able to enter Kiev during 1919 when the White Russian army had briefly liberated Kiev from the Bolsheviks, where they found the unspeakable horrors of the Cheka execution room.

I have found several references to this. Most of these refer to the Rohrbach Commission as an American Government sponsored inquiry but one reference I have Benton L Bradberry's _The Myth of German Villainy says it was a British government inquiry. Can you clarify this?

References to Rohrbach online appear to have been censored. (I hope this isn’t just my incompetence at the internet!) Similarly I note that the online references that can be found all seem to be sourced from _The Defender Magazine_ of October 1933. But when one searches online for The defender one gets the Labour Defender which if anything appears to be pro-Bolshevik. Can you direct me to somewhere where I could read the original Defender articles or anything else authoritative about Rohrbach Commission – ideally his report itself ?

Grateful for any assistance or advice....

Here was my hopeless answer:

I have not been able to find any orginal documentation on the Rohrbach Commission report you mention. Of course, I would like to, because I would be happy to post it at the MK Project site along with the other documentation which I have there. So you are not alone...

As for Defender magazine, neither do I know much about that. It seems to be way before my time. The people who wrote articles mentioning it (i.e. Willie Martin) are now deceased.

Sorry to disappoint you, but I will keep this in mind, and perhaps post it to my forum. Some of the members there may know more.

Haven't heard of it myself, but would also like to know more about the event, especially this Cheka 'execution room.'

Bolshevik Russia was a look into what hell on earth looks like, and I imagine the White Army witnessed horrors similar to what the Germans found during Operation Barbarossa.

Of course, we all know that only Germany was capable of war crimes, since Russia was one of the Allies of Evil.

I've looked into this alleged "Commission Report," and it raises a lot of red flags. All references to it are found mostly on White Nationalist websites--or anti-communist websites--and they all refer to each other and use the same reference, which cannot be traced.

If the Rohrbach Commission were, in fact, a real Congressional commission, there would be references to it, but there are none. It reminds me of the allegation that the "Nazis" used fluoride in the water at the concentration camps to "sedate" the prisoners, and the reference is always the same: "The Rise And Fall Of I.G. Farben," but the problem is that no reference appears in that book concerning fluoride. But "truthers" still reference it anyway, because conspiracy guru, Jim Marrs says it's true.

Orthodox revisionist Matthew Raphael Johnson mentions the so-called Rohrbach Commission in the following essay, in which he asserts that neither the commission nor the report ever existed.

http://www.rusjournal.org/wp-content/up ... R_Cold.pdf

However, Johnson seems to imply that the ficticious Rohrbach Commission Report was based on the very real proceedings of the Overmann Commission, which investigated U.S. corporate relationships with the Soviet Union:

The western love affair with the USSR was shown to be overwhelming as early as 1919. The
Rohrbach Commission in the US Congress did not exist. Unfortunately, amateur researchers
usually bite off more than they can chew, and this non-existent “Commission” has been used as a
club to beat revisionists over the head with for years.

However, the Overmann Commission was quite real. The facts unearthed led to a
firestorm of denunciation by the State Department, the British government and academia. In a fit
of total dishonesty, it is connected to “Joe McCarthy” regardless of the fact that it took place in
1919. There is good reason for establishment figures to condemn it in unison, since those
testifying before the committee were major figures themselves. The fact that their testimony is
censured from each and every history textbook on the USSR should give an indication of the
quality of academic study on this topic.

Those testifying were Professor Harper of the University of Chicago, an eyewitness to the
revolution before the Bolshevik takeover. The head of the Methodist Mission to Petrograd
George A. Simons. The latter, while rejecting all forms of antisemitism, says that “I have a firm
conviction that this thing [the Red forces] is Yiddish, and one of its bases is in Brooklyn, NY”
(Overmann, CR, 112; all pages come from the Report itself) He goes on to explain (113-116) that
most of the Soviet activists he met with in Petrograd and elsewhere were Yiddish speakers
primarily. He also adds that the only reason the American delegation was unwilling to recognize
Lenin was the Brest Treaty (118)


Hope this helps...

Thanks EzraLB! Yes, I was afraid that this may be the case, and hoped it could be verified somewhere. There are mentions of an Overman Committee/Commission in some of the book posted at the Mein Kampf Project. And just now trying, I was able to turn up a copy of a 1200+ page book containing its reports at archive.org:

https://archive.org/details/cu31924030480051

Fortunately, there are no references to the "Rohrbach Commission" at Christogenea. However Willie Martin swallowed the pill and repeats the same tune found on a lot of the sites you mention which simply repeat things they hear and do not check the facts for themselves.

There is far too much of that on the internet...
