Sowohl bei seiner Vernehmung durch Captain Avner W. Less im Rahmen des Eichmann-Prozesses[1] als auch später im Juli 1961 vor Gericht[2] berichtete Adolf Eichmann, in den Lagern der sogenannten Aktion Reinhardt seien Menschen durch die Abgase eines russischen U-Boot-Motors getötet worden. Noch im Jahre 2010 erging sich der Holocaust-Überlebende und Berufszeuge Thomas „Toivi“ Blatt in gleichen Anschuldigungen.[3]

Da laut Gudmundur Helgason die Deutschen während des Zweiten Weltkrieges lediglich ein einziges U-Boot gekapert haben, nämlich am 4. Mai 1941 das von Lt. Cmdr. R. P. Lonsdale kommandierte britische HMS Seal,[4] stellt sich die Frage, woher genau dieser Motor eines russischen U-Bootes stammte.


  1. Jochen von Lang (Übers. & Editor): Eichmann Interrogated: Transcripts from the Archives of the Israeli Police., Farrar, Straus & Giroux, New York, 1983. (HTML):
    „Globocnik sent for a certain Sturmbannführer Höfle, who must have been a member of his staff. We went from Lublin to, I don’t remember what the place was called, I get them mixed up, I couldn’t say if it was Treblinka or some other place. There were patches of woods, sort of, and the road passed through – a Polish highway. On the right side of the road there was an ordinary house, that’s where the men who worked there lived.
    A captain of the regular police (Ordnungspolizei) welcomed us. A few workmen were still there. The captain, which surprised me, had taken off his jacket and rolled up his sleeves, somehow he seemed to have joined in the work. They were building little wooden shacks, two, maybe three of them; they looked like two- or three-room cottages. Höfle told the police captain to explain the installation to me. And then he started in. He had a, well, let’s say, a vulgar, uncultivated voice. Maybe he drank. He spoke some dialect from the southwestern corner of Germany, and he told me how he had made everything airtight. It seems they were going to hook up a Russian submarine engine and pipe the exhaust into the houses and the Jews inside would be poisoned.“
  2. State of Israel, Ministry of Justice: The Trial Of Adolf Eichmann – Record of Proceedings in the District Court of Jerusalem, Session 87 (5/8):
    „I arrived in Lublin and reported, indicated my assignment, and then, together with either one of Globocnik’s adjutants or another SS officer who knew the region, I set off in some direction which I was not familiar with, arrived at a site where I saw two medium-sized peasants’ cottages, which were being worked on by a captain in the Order Police, whom I found in his shirt-sleeves. He told me that he had to seal these cottages hermetically, and that the Jews were to be gassed here by means of a Russian submarine motor. I did not see any more there – the installation was not yet operating. […] I would therefore think that it was around the end of summer or autumn 1941.“
  3. Independent, 17. Januar 2010: Sobibor survivor: “I polished SS boots as dying people screamed” & Scotsman, 8. Januar 2010: True hell of life inside the Nazis’ death camp:
    „We heard the whine of the generator that started the submarine engine which made the gas that killed them. I remember standing and listening to the muffled screams and knowing that men, women and children were dying in agony as I sorted their clothes. This is what I live with“
  4. Captured U-boats:
    „The Germans captured one enemy submarine during World War Two (at sea), the British HMS Seal Commanded by Lt. Cmdr. R. P. Lonsdale on May 4, 1940.“
