As an author, I am committed to the task of opening the lid on this material. A victim of the phraseology of the banal during my youth, I now attempt to grasp it by the "transcription" method (taking a formalistic approach so as to bring the events that took place into even sharper focus).
The alphabet of German fascism is composed of words of death. Yet these words of death speak not so much of death as of ACCUMULATED TOTALS, APPEASEMENT, BEING EMIGRATED, CHILD DEPORTATION, CLEANSING, DISINFECTION, DISINFESTATION, GV, meaning GASSING VEHICLE, J-ACTIONS, J-SHIPMENTS, JEW CLEARANCE, PACIFICATION, PROCESSING, ROUND-UPS, SPECIAL ACCOMMODATION, SPECIAL PASSENGER RAIL TRAFFIC, ST, meaning SPECIAL TREATMENT, and all involve THE CONSIGNMENT crushing against the doors of the gassing vehicle.
