Miko Peled, son of a famous Israeli general, explains the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , — furtherglory @ 9:19 am

With all of the fighting going on now between the Jews and the Palestinians, the conflict might be hard for Americans to understand.  So I am putting up a video which shows Miko Peled explaining the origins of the state of Israel and the history of the Palestinians.

One important point that Peled makes in his speech is that the current Jewish residents of Israel are not the descendents of King David and the original Jews who lived in Israel many years ago.  This is something that you don’t often hear on present-day news shows about the conflict in the Middle East.

The video is quite long, but please watch it until the 47 minute mark, at which point Peled finishes his speech.  Then you can watch the second video, which is a joke.

Philip Riteman is still educating students about the Holocaust

Filed under: Dachau, Germany, Holocaust — Tags: , , , , — furtherglory @ 10:33 am

This morning, I read in a CBS news story that Holocaust survivor Philip Riteman is still out on the lecture circuit, educating young students in Canada about the horrors of the Holocaust.

This quote is from the news article:

One of the last living Holocaust survivors in Atlantic Canada continues to tell his story, and says he worries the horrors he experienced could happen again.

It took four decades for Auschwitz survivor Philip Riteman to begin speaking about what he went through after he was captured by the Nazis when he was 14 years old.

The news article is very short, but it does give a hint that Philip’s story is worth some in-depth study.  I recognized his name, when I read the news article, and I remembered that I wrote about him extensively on my website scrapbookpages.com many years ago: http://www.scrapbookpages.com/DachauScrapbook/DachauLiberation/PhilipRiteman.html

One of the interesting things about Philip’s story is that he was liberated on May 2, 1945 by American troops. This date identifies him as one of the prisoners who were marched out of the Dachau main camp toward the mountains of Austria in April 1945, just before the main Dachau camp was liberated..

The following information is from my scrapbookpages website:

Acting upon Hitler’s orders, the Commandant of Dachau, Wilhelm Eduard Weiter, made an attempt to evacuate the Dachau main camp before the American liberators arrived. On April 26th, 1945, Weiter left the Dachau main camp with a transport of prisoners bound for Schloss Itter, a subcamp of Dachu in Austria. Weiter allegedly committed suicide when the prisoners on the march were liberated by the Allies, but the truth is that he was probably shot by the Americans.

This quote is from my website page on Philip Riteman:

On November 10, 2005, Riteman gave a talk to College students in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada; Keith Adolph took the following notes which he posted on his blog:

-Reitman went to school as a normal child in 1938
-Early on in the war it was seen as a fight against evil
-In 1939 Poland was invaded
-His father had ties to the Russian Gov’t and so they traveled to live under Russia and still it was not a good country to live in
-The Germans’ journey to Minsk took them through Reitman’s small town. For months they drove tanks through town
-They killed those in their way or caught watching them

-The Nazis approached the mayor and demanded 10 kilos of gold and 20 kilos of silver or they would level the town. They took the money and left after a time.
-They returned and surrounded the town before asking for more. This time the town could not pay.
-Days later, at 3 AM, the Nazis came to the houses and took people from their homes. They separated children from parents and marched the 3000 residents 60 km. Others (about 5000) were driven.
-During the march they killed roughly 200 residents.
-Before releasing the residents the Nazis took 14 people aside, striped them and shot them dead, letting their bodies drop into 7 graves already dug.
-The residents were then freed and reunited with the others.

-They were left in a small town that was entirely vacant.
-The village had been purged and the people were culled into a mass grave 50 x 100 and 7 feet deep
-En route they came upon a town and they were collected into a ghetto of 40,000.
-After Reitman’s group joined the ghetto, any person approaching the ghetto was shot.
The ghetto had no food.

-Nine months later the ghetto was liquidated
-The residents were told they were being taken to a farm.
-They were all collected into 120 freight cars with all they could carry.
-The trains traveled for hours – all day
-A baby starved to death on the journey
-A man dropped dead and was pushed to the wall
-The train kept going
-The train traveled for 6 nights and 7 days.
-No food, No water
-People were soiling themselves where they stood
-One man was using a spoon to catch snow drops falling outside for water
-Reitman and the others were taken to Auschwitz

-The doors were opened and everyone jumped out
-Reitman grabbed his little sister. Also in the car were his two brothers, his big sister and his parents
-The Nazis beat and pushed them onto a platform
-A woman chasing her baby was stabbed to death with a bayonet
-Reitman was told to pretend that he was 18 when the Nazis were dividing the Jews by age and gender.
-If you were 18-45 you had a chance of surviving
-Parents with their young children were taken straight to the gas chambers.

-The Nazis began to divide the men by occupation
-Reitman pretended to be a locksmith
-The intellectuals were collected (about 300 of them) and machine gunned to death. The Nazis only needed workers.
-They were ordered to strip naked and shot if they moved too slowly.
-The Jews were shaved from head to toe.
-Body searches were conducted. Those caught hiding anything, even their gold teeth were executed.

-If you spoke German in the camps, the Nazis would bring out ‘interpreters’ who beat you with sticks so that you would never speak German again.

-Hundreds of men were put into cold showers and then given striped clothes.
-They were given a bowl, no utensils.
-They were then tattooed.
-Over 2 million died at Auschwitz.
-They were made to march. If you refused, your legs were broken.
-The Jews marched better than the Nazis.
-The Nazis would lock them into their barracks each night.
-They fit 7 into each bunk.
-There were 125,000 men at Auschwitz [main camp] at this time.
-Only 20,000 were Jewish. The others were Russians, Gypsies, Blacks and so on.

-Reitman spent 2 years at Auschwitz [main camp] and then 2 years at Dachau [subcamps]. In between he spent 6 months in Birkenau [AuschwitzII] where there were 2000 men to a barrack
-Smaller camps would kill their population and then call on larger camps to replenish their numbers. This is why Reitman moved around so much.

-Reitman says he had to close his mind to survive. He was like a zombie.
-He learned to never be first or last in line. Always be in the middle.
-He lost five brothers, his parents, his grandparents. He lost nine uncles and nine aunts and many cousins.
-He was the only survivor in his whole European family.
-He could not talk about the camps or his family for forty years.

“What kept you going?”
-If there is a God somewhere he will help me.
-He would have liked to have eaten one big meal and then died
-They ate one bowl of soup a day.
-If they had lost their bowl they were accused of sabotaging the Nazi Gov’t and beaten to death with sticks
-They wouldn’t waste the bullet.
-By comparison, the homeless today live in heaven. The Nazis burned them.
-If you limped, you were shot.
-Those who escaped got only 100-1000 feet and they starved to death.
-When they returned they were shot and burned by their fellow prisoners at the start of their day (5 AM)

-After 6 months in the camp Reitman found an old class mate who was in the camps because he was a Baptist.
-The boy recognized Reitman and called out to him.
-The Nazis had wanted his family’s cattle but the boy’s father would not give it to them. He was shot.
-His mother attacked the Nazis and she was hung in the town center.
-His sisters were cut and raped and shot in the heart.
-His little brother was chased into the woods and shot.
-The boy joined Reitman’s work group on a farm and was instantly hated by the Nazis.
-One day he was stripped and put into a water trough. The Nazis took steel wool and tried to take his freckles off.
-The boy died in the trough which was full of his own blood.
-Reitman and the others had to take the boy back to camp to be burned.
-He was Reitman’s best friend.

-Reitman was sent to another camp. When he arrived the barrack was full of all the dead.
-He and the others were forced to bury the bodies, but they were forbidden to pray.
-At another camp he spent a month in an airplane hanger.
-At Dachau the barracks were filled with bodies piled 7 ft high.
-When they tried to remove them the bodies came apart in their hands.
-These barracks were sunken into the ground 

[the barracks at the Kaufering IV camp were sunk into the ground - http://www.scrapbookpages.com/DachauScrapbook/DachauLiberation/KauferingIVLiberation.html ]

Barracks at Kaufering IV sub-camp of Dachau were partly underground

-They were marched for 2-3 weeks in the winter with only the snow to eat.
-Reitman estimates that 50,000 were killed for their weakness.
-They marched with tanks so that American planes would not bomb the convoys. The Jews wished they would though, just to kill the Germans.
-One night the camp was empty, not a German in sight. In the distance he could see the Americans coming, calling “You’re free!”
-This was May 2, 1945. Reitman was 18 years old and 75 lbs.

-The Americans brought food and medicine.
-Reitman had never seen bananas before, or a coloured person.
-A coloured soldier taught him to peel bananas.
-He would drink 3-4 cans of milk a day

-Reitman says he will never go back to the camps, but urges young people to visit them.
-He says he sees the camp every time he closes his eyes, even when he lived in Newfoundland.
-It would take Reitman 5 years to tell the story of his 5 years in the camps.

-He cannot forgive or forget what happened. Only God can forgive.
-Reitman says he does not hate the Germans he met after the war. He only hates the Nazis

-“I am speaking for millions who cannot speak”

-When he saw Americans he applied to go to the USA.
-The Red Cross took care of him in Europe and asked him about his history which they compared to his records held by the Nazis
-A month later he received a letter from Newfoundland from his mother’s sister.
-Then he got another letter from Newfoundland with 20 US $ in it.
-And then another from Montreal with 10 US $
-Then New York from his father’s sister and an uncle who had left Europe in 1890 and another in 1905.
-They were all relatives that he had never known to exist.
-In 1946 he was to come to Canada but the Canadian Gov’t would not allow Jews into the country.
-Newfoundland was not part of Canada at the time and they brought him right over.
-He traveled from Munich to Paris to New York to Newfoundland.
-He had never been on a boat before and he was very sea sick.
-The Newfoundland Gov’t said he was a free man. He was a Newfoundlander.

Most people would give the prize for the best Holocaust lies to Irene Zisblatt, but I think that Philip Riteman is a contender for this prize.  He at least deserves an honorable mention in the list of  Holocaust liars who have told the most egregious Holocaust lies.

From the details of his story, it is clear that Riteman was a political prisoner who was first sent to the Auschwitz main camp.   He was not among the Jews who were rounded up in order to be “exterminated” at the Auchwitz-Birkeanau camp. Riteman was marched out of the Auschwitz camp, and taken to Dachau, where he was then sent to one of the sub-camps to work.  He was brought back to the main camp, and then marched out of Dachau, on a march led by the Commandant of the camp, indicating that he was one of the prominent prisoners that the Nazis wanted to save.

No Jews died of starvation at Auschwitz-Birkenau

Filed under: Holocaust — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 10:29 am

I was very pleased to learn, from the website of the Auschwitz Memorial and Museum website, that all the Jews who died at Auschwitz were killed in the gas chambers.  Apparently, no one died of starvation or illness.

This quote is from the website: “Of the approximately 1.1 million Jews deported to Auschwitz, about 200 thousand were chosen in this way [for labor]. The remainder, about 900 thousand people, were killed in the gas chambers.”

What?  No Jews died of typhus at Auschwitz?  This must have been because the Nazis  forced all the Jews to take a shower immediately upon arrival, and then shaved their heads to get rid of any lice; they regularly disinfected the prisoner’s clothing with Zyklon-B gas to eliminate the lice that spreads typhus.

This quote is from the home page of the Auschwitz Memorial and Museum:

All over the world, Auschwitz has become a symbol of terror, genocide, and the Holocaust. It was established by Germans in 1940, in the suburbs of Oswiecim, a Polish city that was annexed to the Third Reich by the Nazis. [Oswiecim's] name was changed to Auschwitz, which also became the name of Konzentrationslager Auschwitz.

The direct reason for the establishment of the camp was the fact that mass arrests of Poles were increasing beyond the capacity of existing “local” prisons. Initially, Auschwitz was to be one more concentration camp of the type that the Nazis had been setting up since the early 1930s. It functioned in this role throughout its existence, even when, beginning in 1942, it also became the largest of the death camps.

Way back in 1998, after my first visit to Auschwitz, I wrote about the town on this page of my website: http://www.scrapbookpages.com/AuschwitzScrapbook/History/Articles/AuschwitzTown.html  I updated the page, after my second visit to the town in 2005.

Today’s students, who are taken to see the Auschwitz camps, are first taken to the town, where they are told that the town was originally a Polish town named Oswiecim, and that the name was changed to Auschwitz by the Germans.

I blogged here about British students on the HET tours who are first taken to Oswiecim where they are told that the town was built by the Polish people.  Not true. The town dates back to the year 1270 when it was built by the Germans.

In 2005,  when I went back to visit Auschwitz again; I took photos of the town which you can see on my website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/AuschwitzScrapbook/Tour/Oswiecim/index.html

the father of Assemblywoman Cheryl R. Brown helped to liberate Auschwitz

The following quote is from a news article, which you can read in full here.  The title of the article is California School’s Holocaust Denial Assignment Requires ‘Reeducating’ of Misled Youth.

Assemblywoman Cheryl R. Brown (D-San Bernardino) revealed that her own father had served during WWII and had helped to liberate the Aushwitz (sic) concentration camp in Poland. He had told her about the smell of burned bodies as a child, writes the Times. “As a result of this assignment, we must now deal with reeducating young people who have been misled by this district,” Brown told the school board.

Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.  And black soldiers in the U.S. Army liberated Aushwitz.  This was not the Auschwitz “death camp” but a different camp, in Poland, called Aushwitz. (Note the difference in the spelling of the names of these two camps.)

This quote is also from the article:

One frustrated Pasadena-based attorney Neal Fialkow, who was also present at the board meeting, said the damage may already be done, notes the Times. Addressing the school board, he said “You’ve planted a seed of doubt… Congratulations. You’ve taken a[n] historical fact and made it a matter of opinion. What’s next, 9/11 never happened?” he posited. “Every single child now has been infected.”

What a revolting development this is!  “Every single child [in the Rialto school district] has now been infected.  Is there any hope for these children?

“Days of Anger” in France, as thousands call for Jews to “get out”

Filed under: Holocaust — Tags: , — furtherglory @ 10:03 am

You can read about the “Days of Anger” in France, in an article, written by Ian Tuttle, a William F. Buckley, Jr. Fellow at the National Review Institute.

This quote is from the article:

…. Jewish leaders blame the upswing in anti-Semitic attacks on four factors, the Post reports: “classic scapegoating amid hard economic times, the growing strength of far-right nationalists, a deteriorating relationship between black Europeans and Jews, and, importantly, increasing tensions with Europe’s surging Muslim population.”

It is this last cause that helps to explain how thousands of citizens in a country oppressed by the Third Reich not even 75 years ago has come to dally, at least rhetorically, with the notion of a Final Solution. [...]

Nationalistic tripe is one thing. But the protesters also took to proclaiming “Faurisson is right! Gas chambers are bulls**t!” Robert Faurisson is a French academic with a history of World War II revisionism. In 1978 he published an article entitled “The Diary of Anne Frank — Is It Authentic?” and he has declared, “Never did Hitler order or permit the killing of a person because of his or her race or religion.” For his “courage” he received an award in 2012 from Iran’s then-president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. That French anti-Semites have landed on Faurisson for an intellectual leader is alarming, to put it mildly.

I agree that Robert Faurisson is not the best of the revisionists, but he is French, so I think that is why he is admired by the French people who want the Jews out of France.

In my humble opinion, Faurisson was completely wrong in his analysis of the Diary of Anne Frank.  I wrote about this on a blog post at http://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2010/02/19/the-dairy-of-anne-frank-is-it-authentic/

Holocaustianity — a religion created by the Jews for gentile consumption

The photo immediately above shows the altar in the 6,000 square-foot Hall of Remembrance on the second floor of the US Holocaust Memorial Museum, which is on 14th Street in Washington, DC. The room has 6 sides which represent the 6 million Jews who were murdered in the Holocaust, and the 6-pointed Star of David, which is the Jewish emblem. The Hall is three stories high and there is a 6-sided skylight at the top.

The US Holocaust Memorial Museum is a place for non-Jews to worship in the Holocaustianity religion. When I visited the Museum, a few years ago, I did not see anyone that I could identify as Jewish.

The title of my blog post today comes from an entry on Metapedia which I have quoted below:

Holocaustianity (also known as the Holocaust religion and Shoaismus) is a secular religion, created by proponents of Talmudism for gentile consumption since the late 20th century. It is based primarily upon enforced guilt and self-loathing over alleged Jewish casualties during World War II and the supposed “moral authority” in the world of Talmudic Jews. It acts as the spiritual wing of the international exploitation racket known as the Holocaust industry. The religion is the de facto state religion in Germany, United States, France and elsewhere. The pilgrim’s site “Israel” which is at the same time also a home of many priests of the Shoaismus is visited by believers often and with pleasure and seems to the pilgrim to give plentiful material blessing.

There are several quotes from individuals on the Metapedia page for Holocaustianity, including this quote from Eli Wiesel:

In the beginning was the Holocaust. We must therefore begin again. We must create a new Talmud and compile new midrashim, just as we did after the Surban, the destruction of the Second Temple. We did so then in order to mark the new beginning until then we lived one way, from then on nothing could be the same.

Metapedia acknowledges that, as in all religions, there are heretics who don’t believe the gospel truth that is promoted in Holocaustianity.

The following quote is from Metapedia:

Like other religions before it has also got of the Shoaismus to lift the separation of state and religion. In some states, as for example of the FRG, this connection of Shoaismus and state is so narrow that heretics, i.e. the apprenticeship deviating from the Shoaismus is pursued drastically by criminal law. In addition heretics which are called themselves Revisionists are pursued by the Shoaists as a Holocaust-doubting people and are incarcerated every now and then also for several years. [H]eretic works are put on an index to prevent the spreading or also immediately drawn and pulped.

Besides, one must write by no means heretic so revisionist, Holocaust-denying everything, works to be pursued as a heretics, but it is enough just like that to express doubt in from the Shoaists as an evident fact the honoured holy Holocaust. Also bare sympathy manifestations for Revisionisten or revisionist works are sufficient to loose favour of the ruling.

According to the Metapedia page, Angela Merkel and Glenn Beck are both “Known Shoaists.”   I don’t think so.  IMHO, they are both just trying to protect themselves.

New Jersey schools teach students about “Greek atrocities in World War II”

This morning, I read an article in the on-line NJSpotlight newspaper, which is about Paul Winkler, who is entering his 40th year leading the nation’s first Holocaust education program.

The article included the quote below:

The [New Jersey Holocaust] commission is best known for its Holocaust curriculum, but it has also developed curricula on 13 other acts of horror throughout modern history, from the Native American genocide through Darfur. The most recent was a 20th anniversary presentation about the mass killings in Rwanda, as well as curricula on Greek atrocities in World War II and Soviet leader Josef Stalin’s gulags.

The Greeks committed atrocities in World War II?  How could that be?  Only the Nazis committed atrocities during World War II, never the Allies.  I hurried to Wikipedia, as fast as my fingers could take me, to find out the truth.

Here is what Wikipedia has to say about atrocities in Greece in World War II:

In early December 1943, the German Army’s 117th Jäger Division began a mission named Unternehmen Kalavryta (Operation Kalavryta), intending to encircle Greek Resistancefighters in the mountainous area surrounding Kalavryta. During the operation, 78 German soldiers, who had been taken prisoner by the guerillas in October, were executed by their captors. The commander of the German division, General Karl von Le Suire reacted with harsh and massive reprisal operations across the region. He personally ordered the “severest measures”—the killing of the male population of Kalavryta—on 10 December 1943.

So it seems that students in New Jersey schools are not only learning about the Jews killed by the Nazis, they are also learning about reprisals, which were legal during World War II.  There were reprisals against the Greek Resistance fighters, who were illegal combatants in World War II; the purpose of these legal reprisals was to stop the illegal killing of German soldiers who were fighting on the battlefield.

The most famous reprisal during World War II was the one at Oradour-sur-Glane.  I have written several blog posts about Orddour-sur-Glane, including this one: http://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2013/06/09/june-10th-the-anniversary-of-the-oradour-sur-glane-tragedy/

If the New Jersey schools want to teach students about atrocities during World War II, the reprisal at Oradour-sur-Glane is the best example of the Germans fighting legally against the illegal combatants in World War II.

At least 50 students denied the Holocaust in Rialto critical thinking essays

According to a news article, which you can read in full here, at least 50 of the Ridalto 8th grade students, who participated in a “critical thinking” assignment about the Holocaust, wrote an essay in which they expressed doubt about the Holocaust, or flatly denied it.

What a revolting development this is! [1]

This quote is from the article: “To write the in-class essay, students were given printouts from About.com, History.com and Holocaust denial site BibleBelievers.org.au.

I went to the BibleBelievers.org.au website and read their “Holocaust Denial” web page.   Very clever!  Click on the link and see for yourself.  The article starts out by mentioning Fred Lauchter. As everyone knows this is the kiss of death because Lauchter has been thoroughly discredited by the Holocaust Believers. Fred doesn’t have a degree in Engineering, so what does he know!

Years ago, I put up a page on my scrapbookpages.com website, on which I quoted the Leuchter Report on the Dachau gas chamber, with links to my Dachau photos to illustrate what he was talking about.  I got a lot of flak for doing this, and I had to refuse many requests, from Holocaust Believers, to take down this page.

This quote is from the news article:

Rialto Unified School District administrators, besieged by criticism after the assignment became public in May, claimed at the time that none of the students who completed the assignment questioned or denied the Holocaust, but a survey of the students’ work by this news organization found numerous examples of students expressing doubt or flatly denying that the Holocaust occurred.

[...]

Administrators have said the district’s roughly 2,000 eighth-grade students were assigned the essays in April as a critical thinking project. After the assignment became public, the district was roundly criticized by angry parents, Jewish advocacy groups and scholars and members of the state Legislature.

“Students got high praise and grades for writing that the Holocaust was a hoax. I’m sick about that, I’m sick about that,” said Rabbi Suzanne Singer of Temple Beth El in Riverside. “It’s worse than I thought it was.”

At the time that the news came out, about this story, I was highly suspicious of the claim that none of the students had written an essay in which they had expressed any Holocaust denial.  I wrote several posts about this subject, including this blog post: http://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2014/05/10/critical-thinking-assignment-started-with-the-study-of-the-diary-of-anne-frank/

This morning, I went to the About.com website and checked it out.  I decided to see what About.com says about the Dachau gas chamber: http://history1900s.about.com/library/holocaust/bldachau26.htm

I have the same photo, which is shown by About.com, on this page of my website:  http://www.scrapbookpages.com/DachauScrapbook/GasChamber/disinfection01.html

If you want to stay out of prison in 19 countries, you should get your Holocaust education from About.com.  Don’t be reading my website, or you could wind up in prison for 5 years.

How to teach the Holocaust to students in Pennsylvania

I am commenting on an article, which you can read in full here.  This article, written by Ms. Abby W. Schacter is entitled “Simplest, most important lesson of the Holocaust is missing.”

According to Ms. Schacter, the “missing lesson” of the Holocaust is the Sixth Commandment:  Thou shalt not kill.

Excuse me, but I think that Ms. Schater’s theory is completely and totally wrong, and I will tell you why after you have read the following quote from the article.

This quote is from the article, cited above:

The trouble stems in part from a lack of focus on the purpose of such a curriculum. [Rhonda] Fink-Whitman says it’s needed because children are confronted on college campuses by Holocaust deniers. “If we give them that knowledge, then when they get to college and they hear these liars come onto their campuses and tell them these untruths then they have something to counter with.”

Mike Crossey, president of the Pennsylvania State Educators Association, said Holocaust teaching focuses on “a human rights issue,” as is the teaching of “atrocities around the world.” Crossey adds that “by learning and understanding history, our children, hopefully, will be able to make wise decisions for the future” rather than repeat disastrous “mistakes,” let alone “atrocities” of the kind shockingly condoned and carried out during World War II. The new bill means “educating our students about our world’s historic atrocities [to create] an understanding of the need for tolerance and an understanding of the consequences of bigotry and hate,” said Matt Handel, chairman of the Pennsylvania Jewish Coalition. “We must never forget the horrors of what has happened so that we do not allow these tragic chapters of history to be repeated.”

Studying the Holocaust in Pennsylvania public schools is allegedly going to counter Holocaust denial on college campuses, lead to greater tolerance, prevent genocide, promote human rights and lead citizens to reject all bigotry, hatred and prejudice. A tall order indeed, and this isn’t even the full list of concepts included in the proposed curriculum.  [...]

…My own answer is simple: We turn to a more authoritative law, to the fundamental moral code of our civilization and of the three great religions whose basic text is the Jewish Bible. We turn to the Sixth Commandment, which prescribes: “Thou shalt not murder.” This, in my view, is the primary lesson of the Holocaust.

It is because of the Sixth Commandment that we must oppose mass murder anywhere, anytime, against anyone. Yet, this central lesson is nowhere to be found in Pennsylvania’s new law.

In my humble opinion, the Holocaust had nothing to do with the Sixth Commandant, unless you are saying that the Jews were driven out of Germany because the Jews were breaking the Sixth Commandant.

The following quote is from my own website, scrapnbookpages.com:

Begin quote:

According to information in a display in the bunker at the Dachau Memorial Site, Dr. Albert Rosenfelder was among the first people to be arrested by the Nazis in March 1933; he was sent to Dachau on April 13, 1933.

Dr. Rosenfelder was well known because of his involvement in a criminal court case in which the defendant, a non-Jew named Huszmann, was accused of a murder in which the motive was said to be “unnatural lust.” The murder victim was 20-year-old Helmuth Daube whose body was found in front of his home in Gladbeck, Germany in March 1928. His throat had been cut and his genitals were missing; there were wounds on both hands, and a stab wound in the abdomen, although no blood was found near the body. Huszmann was acquitted and subsequently Julius Streicher, the notorious editor of an anti-Semitic newspaper called “Der Sturmer,” stated in his newspaper that Daube’s death had been a “ritual murder” committed by Jews.

The Dachau bunker exhibit says that Dr. Rosenfelder was responsible for Streicher being sent to prison in 1929. Streicher had been convicted of “libeling the Jewish religion under Paragraph 166 of the Weimar Penal Code” and his newspaper was banned for a time. [Streicher was sent to prison because he had published a list of ritual murders committed by the Jews.

No one knows if Dr. Rosenfelder’s disappearance was the result of a revenge murder or if he escaped, or was secretly released and allowed to leave Germany.

If I have not yet made it clear enough, here is what I am trying to tell you:  The stories of Jews committing “ritual murder” of Christians was one of the main things that caused the Germans to want to get rid of the Jews.  Ritual murder was also the cause of the Holocaust of 1298, which I wrote about at http://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2012/01/19/the-holocaust-of-1298-in-germany/

In the most recent Holocaust,  Jews were transported out of Germany, or killed in gas chambers, whichever story you want to believe, depending on your religion.

Note that the article, which I quoted above mentions that “children are confronted on college campuses by Holocaust deniers.”  This is a reference to Bradley Smith, who is causing trouble on college campuses by asking for the name of one person who was killed in a gas chamber.

Shame on Bradley Smith for asking colleges to provide the name of one person who was gassed!  This is a trick question because the Nazis did not record the names of the Jew who were gassed.  This simple fact should be included in the education of children in American schools.

American schools should start their education of the children by PROVING that there was a gas chamber at Dachau.

Holocaust educators should start by proving that this shower room was a gas chamber

German Jew played “La Paloma” for Nazi guards as they murdered thousands of innocent Jews, Roma, gays and others at Auschwitz

You can read here about Holocaust survivor Coco Schumann, who is still alive and well, playing music in Berlin.

Coco Schumann

Coco Schumann

This quote is from the article, cited above:

Schumann was saved from the gas chambers of Auschwitz because a guard who was charged with sorting out new arrivals recognized him from Berlin’s jazz scene and placed him in a Roma [Gypsy] musical group.

Previously, at Theresienstadt, Schumann had begun playing guitar in a band known informally as “The Ghetto Swingers.” He played “La Paloma” for the German guards at Auschwitz, as they murdered thousands of innocent Jews, Roma, gays and others.

It is well known that the German people love music, and it has often been said that the Germans literally put down their violins in order to murder the Jews.  Now the truth comes out: the Germans put down their violins to kill the Jews, but they forced other Jews to play music for them while the killing was going on.

This quote is from the news article about Schumann:

… In 1943, German authorities began deporting Germans of Jewish-Christian parentage – and someone had apparently informed the authorities that Coco Schumann’s mother was Jewish. Schumann received a letter from the police authorities that he was to report to the Alexanderplatz police station. The letter didn’t state his crime. He was promptly arrested upon arrival and sent to the Gestapo. They then deported him to the concentration camps.

“Theresienstadt. Auschwitz, Dachau. No one believed that I was actually in these places,” Schumann said. “For a long time, I felt that no one would understand what I saw. I didn’t understand it myself.”

So Schumann was sent to THREE different camps, all of which allegedly had gas chambers. Yet, he wasn’t killed.  And all because he could play “swing music” which the Nazis hated because it was un-German. He’s still alive, at the age of 90, and still playing his music.
