How Holocaust remembrance 24/7, 365 days a year affects people today.

Today I read in the news that some people in Greece are becoming fed up with the Holocaust. This quote is from the news article, which you can read in full here:

ATHENS, Greece (JTA) — The Greek neo-Nazi Golden Dawn Party questioned the country marking International Holocaust Remembrance Day, calling it “unacceptable.”

In the Greek Parliament last week, Golden Dawn lawmaker Ioannis Lagos asked the Education and Interior ministers why state institutions and schools commemorate the remembrance day, which is marked on Jan. 27 each year — the day in 1945 that Soviet forces liberated the Auschwitz death camp.

“We have received complaints that on this day, in Greek schools, texts are read which praise the Jews and at the same time portray them as heroes,” Lagos said. “Given that at the same time Greek children are completely ignorant of important moments in Greek history and of the real holocausts and heroes of the Greeks, we find it unacceptable that they are taught about the Jewish Holocaust in detail.”

I previously blogged about Holocaust Remembrance Day here.

To give you an idea of how Holocaust education affects people today, I will quote from an essay written by ROBERT HALFON, MP FOR HARLOW, after a trip to Auschwitz.  Halfon starts out by explaining how he came to hate the German people at a very young age.

Quote from the Harlow Star online newspaper:

It was all because I had watched a series about the Nazi Holocaust on television. Suddenly the German adult who had befriended me became an enemy who (sic) I started to hate.


As a Jew who had relatives in another concentration camp (Bergen Belsen), I have grown up with the Holocaust always in my cultural background. I have read about it, watched films about it, heard about it and visited the Holocaust Museum in Israel, known as Yad Vashem, on a number of occasions.


If one thing Auschwitz teaches you it is not to hate Germans . . . or anyone else for that matter. If not checked, hatred grows and grows.

From demonisation to marginalisation to extermination,that is the story of genocide – not just during the Second World War but the world over.

That is why I know I was so stupid in my behaviour to that German lady as a child and why I have learnt my lesson ever since. We can’t visit the sins of the fathers on the sins of the children.

We must learn from the past but not live in it.

Unfortunately a guided tour of Auschwitz DOES teach hatred.  Halfon’s essay is very well written; it is like poetry, but, unfortunately, his essay contains nothing but hatred.

This quote is from the essay written by Halfon:

Auschwitz I is where the Devil’s sign ‘Arbeit Nacht (sic) Frei’ (Work makes you free) is. As we walked around and went into the huts where artefacts (sic) were displayed, there is a sense that the Nazis ran it as if it were a series of conveyer belts in a factory.

Did anyone ever explain to Halfon and the British students, on their one-day trip, why the Auschwitz main camp has an “Arbeit Macht Frei” sign over the gate, but this sign is not on the gate into the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp? I previously blogged about the sign at Auschwitz here.

Continuing the quote from Halfon’s article:

Prisoners arrived, had their possessions taken away, their hair cut and then many were sent to the gas chambers. In one hut we saw rooms full of human hair which the Nazis used to make textiles, rows of suitcases, piles of spectacles, even hundreds of false legs and arms that were seized.

Then you come out of the huts, walk close to a gas chamber and you have another shock. Right opposite is the house of the camp commandant, Rudolf Hoess. A nice house that would have fitted well into a suburban setting, it is hard to believe that this man, lived there with his family whilst mass murder was being committed on his doorstep.

The organisation (sic) of the camp was extraordinary. With all morality gone, evil had become a science.

The house of the commandant, Rudolf Hoess, is not exactly OPPOSITE the gas chamber in the main Auschwitz camp.  The building that is opposite the gas chamber is the SS hospital.

To any reasonable person, the fact that the SS hospital was across the street from the alleged gas chamber, should be a clue that the alleged gas chamber building did NOT house a homicidal gas chamber.  The house where the Commandant lived was down the street from the so-called gas chamber at Auschwitz. The house is shown in the photo below; notice that the building OPPOSITE it is NOT the gas chamber building.

The quote from Halfon’s essay continues below:

It was a very cold day when we visited Auschwitz. The temperature dipped to -5 degrees and it snowed constantly. But when we arrived at Auschwitz Birkenau I felt a much deeper chill right inside. I shuddered as if I had had a fright. This was the place where the Nazis killed 1.5 million Jews.

The figure of 1.5 million was suggested by Lech Walesa. In January 1945, the New York Times reported that the number of prisoners who had been killed at Auschwitz was 1.5 million.

The number of Jews who died at Auschwitz is unknown, but the current estimate is 1.1 million deaths, including Jews and non-Jews.  The estimate of the number of Jewish deaths is 900,000. You can read about how the numbers at Auschwitz have changed here.

Continuing the quote from the essay by Halfon:

Strangely for me, the part of Birkenau that had most effect was standing on the railway platform. The Nazis had to ensure the trains ran on time to Auschwitz from almost every destination in Europe. From Corfu to the Netherlands, Jews were squashed in cattle trucks without food or water and, taken to this railway platform.

When they got out of the train, they were put in ‘selection’. The fitter, healthier looking ones became prisoners for slave labour, the others taken to the gas chambers having been told they were going to have showers.

When they walked into the shower huts, gas came through the roofs. The dead bodies were then taken by other prisoners to giant ovens where they were burned.

The “shower huts”? “Gas came through the roofs”?  No, the story told about Auschwitz-Birkenau is that the prisoners went into an underground undressing room, took off their clothes, and then proceeded into gas chambers which had NO SHOWER PIPES and NO HOLES in the roof, through which to input the Zyklon-B gas pellets.

The photo below shows the ruins of Krema II, one of the alleged gas chambers at Auschwitz-Birkenau.

Ruins of Krema II gas chamber have no holes in the roof for inputting the gas

The hole that is visible in the photo above is a hole in the roof of Krema II through which at least three Holocaust revisionists have descended and found no evidence of gassing, and no evidence of holes that might have been closed up before the building was blown up.  No holes, no Holocaust!

The trips, taken by the British to Auschwitz, are nothing but propaganda, designed to promote nothing but hatred, and people the world over are getting sick of it. Enough already!


  1. “The Golgotha of modern mankind is Auschwitz. The cross, the Roman gallows, was replaced by the gas chambers.”

    – Rabbi Ignaz Maybaum (1965)

    “The Archbishop [read: Elie Wiesel] himself explained to us why the Church [read:Holocaust Educational Trust] has such powers, and why it strives to keep the education of children in the hands of the clergy [read: Holocaust profiteers]. He knows how important it is to impart religious instruction [read: Holocaust education] to young people, who are incapable of forming a reasoned judgement on the subject in which they are instructed, and who take on trust the teaching of their elders. The clergy [read: Holocaust profiteers] know very well what is the result of ramming into the heads of children from seven years old upwards the ideas for which (Archbishop) Cieplak [read: Elie Wiesel] stands; by this means they catch them fast from tender years in tentacles of religion [Ho£ocaustianity],”

  2. Furtherglory/Scrapbookpages Blog: I read the references to the stockpiles of hair, clothing, and other accumulations in the alleged “Extermination Camps” that were discovered by the so-called “Allies.”
    You may know that it was mandatory for all inmates/political prisoners in all of the work and transit camps to have their heads shaved in order to prevent the spread of typhus bearing lice.
    With the exception of the human hair,the stockpiles of clothing and other accumulations were in part or whole, donations made by the people of Germany to the inmates of the work and transit camps.
    On more than one occasion, the National Socialist Government made requests for donations to the camps, and I am somewhat surprised that no mention is made on your blog, and this includes comments made by Carolyn Yeager, relating to the involvement of the IRC (International Red Cross) in the monitoring and inspection of the work and transit camps from 1940, in order to counter the outrageous propaganda lies of the Soviet Communist Allies: Soviet Communist Britain: Soviet Communist Russia and Soviet Communist America. Adolf Hitler granted unprecedented access to the International Red Cross in 1940 to monitor and inspect all of the work and transit camps in the countries that were occupied by Germany as the Protectorate against Bolshevik Communism.
    The International Red Cross was denied access to any of the extermination/slave labour camps in Soviet Communist Russia. Carolyn Yeager has done much to dispel and counter the rubbish Communist propaganda relating to the Hollow Hoax and the alleged claims that Germany was the cause of WW2, but my gripe with Carolyn Yeager is her apparent refusal to acknowledge, at least publicly, that Soviet Communist America and Britain were instrumental in the destruction of German cities and the real political reasons why Britain and America allied themselves to Bolshevik Communist Russia. Perhaps it shames Carolyn Yeager and many Americans that Soviet Communist America was so instrumental in the destruction of Germany.
    With regard to the “alleged” Hollow Hoax, it should be stated that in 1945 British and American medical teams carried out thousands of autopsies on the corpses of people who were alleged to have been gassed, and in not one instance was death by gassing recorded. All deaths were recorded as death by typhus, typhus related disease and starvation; and to this day no autopsy reports have ever been published to confirm this fact, and the same applies to the inspection reports by the International Red Cross of the work and transit camps.
    As for the feeble minded who visit the “alleged” extermination camps who make equally feeble minded comments by describing the National Socialists and Germany as the “personification of evil,” their comments do not merit any response because they are based solely on a profound (conscious/sub-conscious) hatred of National Socialists and Germany that reflects a profound ignorance of the factual history of WW2.
    On the basis of the Zionist/Communist propaganda education in most Western countries, including America, I would have no hesitation in saying that the vast majority of people who visit the “alleged” extermination camps and support the Communist propaganda Hollow Hoax, have a mental age of an 8 or 9 year old child.
    These feeble minded supportes of the Hollow Hoax should visit the remains of the Soviet Gulag in Russia and familiarise themselves with the history of Bolshevik Communism from 1917/1953 and the estimated 80/100 million ethnic Russians and Eastern Europeans who were physically exterminated by the Soviet regime.
    An excellent reference to a comment by Max Nordau at the Zionist Congress of 1911, 22 years before Adolf Hitler came to power, and 3 years before WW1, Max Nordau said:” How dare the smooth talkers, the clever official blabbers, open their mouths and boast of progress…Here they hold jubilant peace conferences in which they talk against war…But the same righteous Governments, who are so nobly, industriously active to establish the eternal peace, are preparing, by their own confession, complete annihilation for six million people, and there is nobody, except the doomed themselves, to raise his voice in protest although this a worse crime than any war…”
    An excellent Communist propaganda book worth reading is:”Behind The Dictators” by E. H. Lehman. Jomi

  3. One only has to look at any organ of the western MSM to realize that everyday is Holocaust memorial day.. The French revisionist Vincent Reynouard correctly observed that the thousands of tons of bombs which fell on the axis during the war has been replaced by the thousands of books and newspaper articles which fall on the western public every day.
