Rialto students will visit the Museum of Tolerance to learn the truth about the Holocaust

Filed under: California, Holocaust — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 8:00 am

Just a short message today to give a heads up to the students in Southern California, who were recently assigned to do an essay, using critical thinking.  The students have now been assigned to visit the Museum of Tolerance at the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles, CA. so that they can learn the truth about the Holocaust, after they were subjected to the horror of reading a Holocaust denial website.

One of the displays at the MOT, which really impressed me, was the one which showed babies being thrown out of a third story window by the Nazis. You can read what one visitor said about this display here.

This quote is from the web page, cited above:

… a family was watching from behind a fence as their niece (who had given birth 7 days prior) was rounded into the cattle cars with other hospital patients. After she left the family noted that an officer appeared in a window a few stories up. He began to toss babies out the window to their death into waiting cattle car beneath. Babies!

The other display, that I can’t forget, is the one which shows the drawings done by Simon Wiesenthal.  I blogged about these drawings on this blog post:

A word to the wise:  there are guards at the Museum of Tolerance, listening to every word you say.  Don’t be making comments about the displays, or you could wind up being put on trial for Holocaust denial. Not in America, which still has free speech, but you could be renditioned to Germany for trial.  If you don’t know what renditioned means, read my blog post about it at

That’s all, folks. Happy Mother’s Day

  2. Oh yes Wolf, that could possibly come under what’s called “collective punishment”.

    Just ask the Palestinians what that is, if you really want to know about it.

    It’s real, and it’s happening now, rather than a pack of 70 year-old lies about a bunch of East European village idiots

    • Ich habe dich nicht gefragt. So halt die Goshen.

      • Oh sorry, did I touch a sore point there?

        • DB
          No, he days: I did not ask you, so keep your trap shut (Dr. M used Austrian slang “Goschen” for mouth!

          • Yes Herbert thanks, I’m aware of some of these phrases.

            But anyway, Wolfie seems to get quite angry when people say things he doesn’t like. A bit like Israel

          • Thanks for explaining the use of the word “Goshen.” Is it Goshen or Goschen?

            Comment by furtherglory — May 12, 2014 @ 6:33 am

            • THE WORD IS GOSH, IN PLURAL GOSHEN. In the comment facility of this site typing mistakes are easy to occure. As to above commentatorrs my name is WOLF and not Wolfie. Clear?

              • When I write a comment on my own blog, I have the ability to correct a mistake. If a word is misspelled, I am alerted to this, so that I can correct it. I also have the ability to go back and correct something, or add something, AFTER I have posted the comment. I don’t know if other people have the ability to do this, when writing a comment.

                • Yes thanks for that. I am aware that I have incorrectly spelt a word usually after I have posted it, and then I can’t correct it!.

                • I have the ability to correct the spelling in any post, including comments made by others. If you want me to correct your spelling, I will do it.

            • FG
              The spelling is ‘Goschn’ (not derogative). Alternative: ‘Fotzn’ = Mouth. Is derogative, but also a pretty filthy description of the female vagina, freely used in coarse Bavarian/Austrian slang. Source: Austro Dictionary.

  3. May I know the age and knowledge of European History, Geography and Demography of the youngsters supposed to answer the question whehter the Shoah occured or not? I, myself a survivor, am fed up with useless talking about a tragedy where also relative of mine had been murdered. The fact is that in 1931 in East and Central Europe there had been great Jewish Comunities which after WWII simply did not exist any more. Another fact is that the nazis considered as jewish also those who did not affiliated to a Comunity but had accepted Baptism, became atheist or had only jewish parents or grand parents. In Poland even the non jewish spouses of moxed marriages had been considered as Jews by the Nazis. Briefly: even who did not share the Jewish Faith shared the Jewish Fate.

    • In central Europe there were huge German cities like Breslau, Danzig, Stettin each of which was had over 1/2 million Germans in the 1930s…..and twenty years later the same cities existed without any Germans ! I could conclude that they had all been exterminated by the Soviets. Actually many died in air raids and other brutalities but the majority survived and found homes in rump Germany and overseas. Likewise you will find that the majority of pre war Polish Jews found there way to Palestine, the UK, Florida or France etc

      • West Germany after 1945 gave heaven to about 12.000.000 etnic Germans expelled from East Europe. The Jews emigrated from East and Cdentral Europe to Israel after 1945 until 1960 were less than one milion Note that the State of Israel had to give heaven to a mass of Jews expelled from the Arab Stetes, the same that keep the Palestinians, already in third generation, in the famous Camps at the expenses of the UNO agency. Only few found heaven in USA, South America, Australia, or West Europe as shown by Hilberg. Teh majority of Central and East Europa Jews had been murdered exactly by the SS in the Gas Chambers. Do You share the nazi murder doctrine’

    • Again: May I know age and level of knowledge of European History and Geografy of those joungster supposed to answer questions about the occuring of the Shoah?

      Comment by Wolf Murmelstein — May 12, 2014 @ 10:14 am

      • The age of the students in this story is 13 or 14 years old. They are in the 8th grade, which means that they are in their 9th year of school, which began when they were in kindergarten, at the age of 5. In America, Holocaust education begins in kindergarten, but American children do not learn anything about European History unless they learn it in college. As far as I know, American college students are not required to learn European History.

        American children have “social studies,” not History. Geography is no longer taught in California schools.

        • Dear Webmaster! Thanks for the above information which explains why USA foreign policy had been – and is – handled in the well know foolish way. President Wilson did not follow the wise Monroe Doctrine and so he entered the European mess without any knowledge of things, and so USA is involved in many problems. So what can these youngster understand about Shoah?

          Comment by Wolf Murmelstein — May 25, 2014 @ 9:01 am

          • The American people worshiped Woodrow Wilson in former years. I know this because my family was totally in awe of him. One of my relatives was named Woodrow, after the president, and there were many more Americans named Woodrow. I know the day of Woodrow Wilson’s birthday (December 28) because many Americans celebrated that day, long after Wilson was dead.

            You can read about how Americans were in love with Woodrow Wilson on this website:

            Comment by furtherglory — May 25, 2014 @ 10:35 am

            • Just like the many Germans worshiped Adolf Hitler almost until the end. You certainly agree that a historical figure should not be worshiped but evaluated considering the effects of his actions. Nor did you rebuke my opinion about the policy of Woodrow Wilson who won the 1916 election with the promise to keep USA out of war.
