You can read a news article here about Dr. August Hirt, who experimented on Jews at the Naztweiler concention camp during World War II.

I wrote about the Natzweiler gas chamber on this previous blog post:  https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2011/08/04/the-so-called-lethal-gas-chamber-at-natzweiler/

I have a page about Dr. August Hirt and his experiments on my website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/Natzweiler/History/GasChamber.html

The following quote is from my website:

Le Struthof, as the Natzweiler camp is known to the French, was located 31 miles from Strasbourg where Dr. August Hirt, a Professor at the University of Strasbourg, was conducting research on racial characteristics. When he requested Jewish skeletons that were undamaged by bullet holes or body blows, Heinrich Himmler ordered that Jews should be brought from Auschwitz to Natzweiler so that they could be killed in a gas chamber there.

In August 1943, a special gas chamber was constructed by adapting an existing building, formerly owned by the Struthof hotel, which was located about a mile from the concentration camp on a side road. This room had previously been used as a refrigerator room by the hotel.

Killing the Jews in one of the gas chambers at Auschwitz and shipping the skeletons to Strasbourg wouldn’t do — the skeletons had to be prepared with great care by Dr. Hirt himself.

According to a Tübingen Professor, Dr. Hans-Joachim Lang, two anthropologists, who were both members of the SS, Dr. Hans Fleischhacker and Bruno Beger, were sent in June 1943 to Auschwitz to select Jews to be gassed so that their skeletons could be added to the rassistische/rassenideologische collection of Dr. August Hirt. There were 57 men and 29 women in the group that was selected.

What is the slogan of the Jews? Revenge, Revenge, Revenge

You can read about the Jewish slogan of Revenge for the Holocaust at http://www.reformjudaism.org/how-should-we-jews-treat-issue-revenge

I thought about this today when I read about yet another film about Jewish revenge: http://www.jewishjournal.com/hollywood/article/plummer_plays_auschwitz_survivor_in_venice_film_remember

This quote is from the news story:

Christopher Plummer plays an Auschwitz survivor searching for a former camp guard in a film that explores the themes of memory and undying anger.

In Canadian director Atom Egoyan’s “Remember”, competing for the top prize at the Venice Film Festival, Plummer, 85, plays Zev, a dementia-stricken resident of a Jewish home for the aged in New York.

At the behest of wheelchair-bound resident Max (Martin Landau), and as a promise to his dead wife Ruth, Zev sneaks out one night on a quest to find the concentration camp guard — and to kill him with a Glock pistol.

“It’s the last time we can tell this story in the present tense. In 10 years it would have to be a period piece,” Egoyan told Reuters in an interview, referring to the advanced age of the remaining Holocaust survivors.

“It’s very important to understand that even though we all would love to live with the cliche that time heals wounds, and that there is the possibility of rapprochement, there are a lot of people who live with rage.

“There are a lot of people who are still as angry as though it was yesterday.”

Plummer, whose most famous role was as Captain von Trapp in “The Sound of Music” (1965), was not in Venice for the premiere but told a news conference by video link that he’d been intrigued by the character of Zev, whose memory fades in and out.

In order to carry out his mission, Zev reads instructions in a letter given him by Max, who by telephone arranges everything from limousines to hotel rooms in the quest across America and in Canada to identify one of four people, all living under the same name, as the actual camp guard.

“It was not easy, let me tell you, because I’d never done anything like this in my life before. Although I’ve played a lot of different people, they’ve all had great confidence and great authority and some (were) even royal,” Plummer said.

“So…I was dying to play an ordinary man, a simple, intelligent and educated man but who was very introverted, to say the least, and it was something very foreign to me but I was dying to accept the challenge.”

German actor Heinz Lieven, who plays one of the four men Zev has been tasked by Max to track down, said it was important that the film was made, to help keep the memory of the Holocaust alive and to educate younger generations.

“When Hitler came to power I was four years old and when he was at his end (I was) 17…which means I know these times, the incredible murdering,” Lieven said.

“Younger people have to learn, have to know it,” he said.

The film won mixed reviews in the trade press, with Variety praising Plummer’s performance but describing it as a “state-hopping Nazi-hunt mystery that puts a creditably sincere spin on material that is silly at best.”

The Holocaust is a never ending story, as Jewish revenge for the Holocaust is never ending.  You don’t hear the Germans endlessly complaining about the way that German cities were bombed during World War II.

A blast from the past, memories of 9/11

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 8:59 am

I have written several blog posts about the 9/11 attack, including this one:

This blog post about Barbara Olsen is about the 9/11 attack:

This blog post is about an interview with Ward Churchill:

This blog post, which continues the story of Ward Churchill, has lots of links which add to the story:

This news article claims that Jews did not stay home on 9/11 and that there were several Jews who died in the attack:

http://www.nowtheendbegins.com/pages/israel/were-4000-jews-told-to-stay-home-on-911.htm

The usual story is that 3,000 Jews stayed home that day, but the news article, cited above, claims that there were 4,000 Jews who worked there and some of them were killed that day.
