The text quoted below was printed in the online Clay Center Dispatch on February 15, 2013:
Students at Clay Center Community High School had an opportunity to meet history face to face Tuesday when Holocaust survivor Eva Rappart Edmands visited CCCHS [in Lawrence, KS] Tuesday afternoon.
Edmands who lives in Lawrence opened her morning presentation by asking students to complete a quotation often attributed to Edmund Burke: “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is . . . “ (that good men do nothing.)
She went on to explain that’s what happened in Germany that allowed Hitler and the Nazis to do so much evil. [….]
By conservative estimates more than 1,000 priests and ministers died in the gas chambers because they helped Jews, Edmands said.
The Clay Center Dispatch did not report whether Ms. Edmands told the students which gas chamber was used to kill priests and ministers. Dachau was the concentration camp where the priests and ministers were sent. Were the priests and ministers killed in the Dachau gas chamber? You can read about the priests at Dachau here.
What right do “Holocaust survivors” have to come into American schools and tell lies about the Holocaust? Ms. Edmands survived because she hid from the Nazis. She was never in a concentration camp.
This quote from The Dispatch shows that Ms. Edmands is not qualified to talk to students on the subject of the Holocaust:
As for those today who would deny the holocaust, the German’s own records prove it happened.
“The Germans kept excellent records of the trains that went to the death camps. The records had the names of the people who were on the trains,” Edmands said.
It is well known that the “records of the trains that went to the death camps” have never been found. That is why it is ESTIMATED that 1.3 million Jews were sent on trains to Auschwitz; the exact number is unknown.
The train records were kept on IBM Hollerith cards, but those cards were confiscated by the Soviet Union and have never been released. The Soviet Union claimed at the Nuremberg IMT that 4 million prisoners had been killed at Auschwitz, but there was no evidence submitted to back up that claim.
This quote is from the website of the Auschwitz Museum:
We should remember that the Nazis destroyed most of the documents they created and that a list with the names of all Auschwitz victims does not exist.
Should Ms. Edmands be arrested and sent to prison for 5 years for lying about the Holocaust? No, it is only “Holocaust deniers” who are sent to prison for as long as 5 years in 19 countries. A “Holocaust denier” is defined as a person who does not believe Holocaust lies.
