Israeli teens taking selfies at Auschwitz…

My 1998 photo of the entrance into the Auschwitz I camp

When I visited Auschwitz for the first time in 1998, I had an old-fashioned camera, which used film. Photoshop did not yet exist, so what you see is what you get.

I also had, with me, one of the first digital cameras ever made.  I took photos with my 35 mm film camera, and then pulled out my digital camera, which amazed my tour guide, who had never heard of such a thing.  I explained to her that, in case my photos on film didn’t “turn out,” I needed back-up photos on my new digital camera, which recorded photos on small computer disks.  I had a disk reader for my Macintosh computer which I could then use to transfer the photos to my computer.

Imagine if I had taken a “selfie” with my digital camera at that time.  My guide would never have recovered, even to this day.

Now, I have learned the shocking news that some Israeli teens are taking “selfies” at Auschwitz-Birkenau where their great-grandparents were murdered in gas chambers.  You can read all about it here.

This shocking quote is from the article, cited in the link above:

Two months ago, the Israeli Ministry of Education approved a new Holocaust education program that will introduce the sensitive subject as early as kindergarten. The plan has received a lot of criticism from parents, who see it as traumatizing for the children and part of a “brainwashing” by the current government. In one of the posts on the page, a picture of Israel’s education minister reading a book to the children is seen, and the caption reads: “Along came big, bad Hitler…”

About a year ago, I wrote a blog post, in which I mentioned that my grandson was told about the Holocaust in kindergarten in America:

If American students can learn about the Holocaust in kindergarten, why can’t Israeli students?

There is nothing wrong with taking “selfies.”  My grandchildren take photos of their food before eating it.  They have never been to Auschwitz, but if they did go, they would probably take a “selfie” with the Arbeit macht Frei sign in the background.

  3. In England at present we have a lot of media coverage of prominent people who have gotten away with sex crimes against children because of the right connections. Surprising as it may seem the perpetrators were never prosecuted as the children involved were considered worthless to the authorities.
    One of the main perpetrators who has committed vile crimes against children including rape is a certain Greville Janner who was given his peerage by Tony Blair and is now Lord Janner. He was a Labour MP, chairman of the Jewish board of deputies of England, and Chairman of the Holocaust Educational Trust.. The latter body abuses children in the UK by sending them to Auschwitz with tax payer money so they can learn to hate Germans.
    He has gotten away with committing the foulest of crimes and will not even be named because his friends are protecting him. He was incidentally very keen for dementia patients to be prosecuted in Germany for being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

  4. …introduce the sensitive subject as early as kindergarten.

    It would be interesting to know exactly what they mean here by “sensitive”. I mean, the Jews absolutely roll around in it. It’s their ‘get out of jail free card’. Also a general means of profitable extortion. They’re doing their best to make sure everyone on earth knows about it. And if you’re familiar with the movie ‘Contact’, any aliens monitoring electromagnetic emanations from earth certainly also know about the ‘Holocaust’.

    And Jews wonder why people don’t like them.

    • “And Jews wonder why people don’t like them”….ahh no, they don’t. “Why us?” Is a question they NEVER ask themselves

  5. Why do they have to go there? To be thoroughly brainwashed and indoctrinated.
