Update on Holocaust “critical thinking” student assignment

You can read the latest on a school assignment for students in California, which required them to do some “critical thinking” by researching the Holocaust from both  sides.

This quote is from the latest news about the assignment:

After days, of putting up the barricades, the school board backed down, on Monday, May 05, 2014, and discovered that the Holocaust was real and admitted its error.

Coming upon the remains of the Holocaust, General Dwight Eisenhower demanded that the Nazi atrocities be explicitly documented. Eisenhower feared that with the passage of time some “son of a bitch” will deny it.

It seems some of those “sons of bitches” just might govern the Rialto school district. But use your critical thinking skills and make your own decision.

The link on the phrase “son of a bitch” takes you to a website which shows photos, which prove the Holocaust. I have copied some of the photos, that I have identified.

In the first photo above, notice what appears to be a wooden door leaning against something. The second photo shows this same door, which identities the photo as being taken at Dachau, a day or two after the camp was liberated. The bodies were piled up because the camp had run out of coal to burn the bodies. A couple of days later, the Dachau prisoners were put to work hauling these bodies away to be buried.

The photo above is the third photo shown on the website, cited above.  It shows newspaper reporters who were brought to Dachau to get the story. The bodies laid out in the photo are the bodies of prisoners who had died several days AFTER the camp was liberated. These are the bodies of prisoners who died of typhus AFTER the camp was liberated.

The fourth photo shown on the website is the photo above. This photo was taken at Bergen-Belsen, where there was a typhus epidemic in progress when the Germans turned the camp over to the British on April 15, 1945.

The photo shown below has the caption: “6 million Jews”.  The men in this photo are not Jews.  They are Russian Prisoners of War in the Mauthausen camp in Austria.

Moving right along, we see a very famous photo, which shows a BRITISH soldier shoving bodies at Bergen-Belsen into a mass grave. These are the bodies of prisoners who died of typhus. The British used a bulldozer so that they would not have to handle diseased bodies.

Remarkably, the caption on the bulldozer photo is this:

20 million Russians were murdered, raped and humiliated.
And now, much of the world denies or wants to forget about it.

And people wonder why there are so many “Holocaust deniers.”

Finally, we get to the last photo, which is the most disingenuous of all: a photo of the prisoners at Nordhausen who were killed by an American bomb that hit the camp.  This photo is frequently shown as a photo of Jews killed by the Nazis.
