You are right. The Death March is complete at this point and the surviving prisoners are at Camp O’Donnell.
I’ve been in that room. And all indications were that it had not been used for mass extermination. The records from that camp back that up.
Oh, sorry. I forgot this is an ecumenical thread.
I tried looking up more information on the saint in question but didn't find much. I then contacted the publisher (it is a periodical called Magnificat, a fact I should have included in the reply) and relayed the three points for which you question the accuracy. If I get a response I will pass it along.
Were the Battling Bastards of Bataan,
No mama, no papa, no Uncle Sam,
No aunts, no uncles, no cousins, no nieces,
No pills, no planes, no artillery pieces,
And nobody gives a damn!
Written by Frank Hewlett, 1942

Nope, no ecumenical tag, so it’s fair game. < /g >
Just struck me as being a bit oversold. I may dig around and see if I can find anything on the Vatican site.
Although many people died at Dachau, it was not a death camp. Of those, there were six: Belzec, Treblinka, Sobibor, Chelmo, Maidjaneck, and Birkenau [Auschwitz II].All in the East.
Oberg’s appointment will be Heydrich’s last trip. He’ll be in three weeks, and die in five.
Rascher was a Luftwaffe doctor, who was notorious for his high altitude tests on KZ prisoners [with using female prisoners to wrm them up]. He had requested Himmler to allow him to ‘work’ at Dachau, but was not SS.
Rascher, along with his middle-aged wife kidnapped ‘Aryan’ looking babies in the camp, and passed them off as their own [trying to score points with Himmler’s mania about fertility]. when Himmler found out, he had Rqscher shot.
Heydrich will be wounded in three weeks [assasination attempt], and die in five.Sorry. Brain outran my fat fingers.
Makes sense, the Germans didn’t want the local populations in the Reich to be able to smell the burning bodies that they would have had to dispose of, that’s why the death camps were located in Poland.
