students in an American middle school sing the national anthem of Israel

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 9:21 am

In a news story, which you can read in full here, I learned that school children in the Illing Middle School in the town of Manchester, Connecticut sang “Hatikvah,” the national anthem of Israel and read Martin Niemöller’s famous poem “First they came for…” during a ceremony in the school’s Holocaust Children’s Butterfly and Remembrance Garden.

This quote is from the news article:

Illing Middle School students have been studying Nazi genocide in all its horrible detail — desperate fingernail scratches on gas chamber walls; piles of luggage and eyeglasses seized from doomed Jewish victims; hills of human ash.

These American students are studying the eyeglasses taken from the prisoners at Auschwitz. What do these eyeglasses prove?  It proves that the Nazis were thrifty and they saved everything to give to the German people who had nothing after their homes were bombed.

I seriously doubt that these school children understood Niemöller’s poem.  I blogged about this on this blog post:

I am appalled that school children in America are singing the national anthem of another country and gathering in a garden dedicated to the Holocaust religion.

This quote is from the article, which was published in June, 2014:

Phillip Axler, a special education paraprofessional at Illing, helped students understand Jewish culture, Parker said, and in a project titled, “Memory Tile,” students wrote poems about individual children who were killed.

In my humble opinion, I don’t believe that American school children should be singing the national anthem of another country, nor studying Jewish culture.  The Holocaust didn’t happen in America and should not be taught in American schools because the Holocaust has the status of a religion, and America allegedly has “the separation of church and state.”



  1. ” desperate fingernail scratches on gas chamber walls”

    The laws of physics say that fingernail can’t scratch walls and leave marks. But holo-witnesses says they can. Who should I believe? Reason or emotions? Hmmm… 😉

  2. TRADING ON GUILT: Holocaust Education In the Public Schools by Phillip Glidden.
    “…I wager that the whole book is a fabrication along with Glidden himself. The aim of such a book is obvious to me: shill-writing with an ulterior motive, hidden agenda and under-current. And bad shill-writing at that. The good writing is focused on how the Jews are the smartest people in the world and have subjugated just about every country. The author cannot resist bragging, boasting, taunting and grandstanding. Every other page he slams the reader with Hitler this and Hitler that. On and on and on about the Nazi’s. Mitigation hedges and dis-info about the slave trade. Even bum dope about the origins of words such as “taboo” and “manna.” This book is not about educating anyone.”

  3. Okay. This ones complete and total horses**t. This is America . We’ve only one anthem in our country . Truth be known,this is probably the doings of some brain dead liberal . These are the some people who you have to tip toe around to make sure you don’t offend their fragile senseabilities . The libtards wanna pull this crap in their own home,knock yourself the f**k out . Not in public though. I don’t give a damn if they want to rag about their constitutional rights being stepped on or not.

  4. I have written the author of the linked article a polite email to ask where “hills of human ash” were found.

    • I have studied this subject and AFAIK, there are no HILLS of human ash.
      When I visited Auschwitz in 1998 and again in 2005, I was told that the ashes were thrown into “ash ponds.” There are signs at Auschwitz, which mark the locations of the “ash ponds.” I took photos of the “ash ponds” which I put on this blog post:

      • …there are no HILLS of human ash.

        Of course there weren’t any. It’s another casual — absurdly casual — Holocaust lie that can be spread around without fear of questioning or contradiction. Because only evil ‘Holocaust deniers’ would question any claim about the ‘Holocaust’. And the younger those paying attention the better.

        • Keep in mind that Himmler had a degree in agriculture. He would have been careful about disposing of human ashes. I believe that the ashes were put into large urns and taken out of the Auschwitz camp when it was abandoned. The ashes in other camps, e.g. Dachau, were put into urns that were still there when the camp was liberated. I don’t believe that the ashes would have been thrown onto “hills” or thrown into the rivers.

    • Maybe they’re talking about Sobibor’s “Ash Mound”, now called “Memory Hill”…

    • I got a reply from the author that included this link:
      As a hint, the author said “Caption on first photo from [link] says the observers are Soviet soldiers.”

      • OK. I see. Already knew this picture. I didn’t dare suggest Majdanek because I didn’t think that anybody could call such little piles “hills”. Quite funny. One of the Soviets even had to bend over to examine that “hill”.

        7 tons of ashes were reportedly found at Majdanek. With a few kilograms of ashes per cremated corpses, that makes a few thousands cremations. Something like 3,000 to 6,000 cremated corpses if memory serves me right. Not a big deal. And certainly not a “Holocaust”…

  5. I wonder what language they sang Hatikvah in. I don’t THINK there are English words for it. If they sang in Hebrew, at least they wouldn’t draw any meaning from it.
    When taking German in public school in 1959 in the US, I learned the German national anthem, which had been sanitized from “Deutschland über alles” to “Deutschlandlied,” with the offending first two stanzas removed. The beautiful original melody, from Haydn, had been retained.
    I don’t see why Hatikvah (a beautiful melody from Bedrich Smetana) couldn’t be taught to HEBREW students.
