Sixty Minutes will be doing a story on the Holocaust tonight:

Update Oct. 8, 2015:

On the 60 Minutes show on Oct. 4, 2015, the narrator said that 1/2 of the Jews were executed in the forests and ravines in the Soviet Union.  A French Catholic priest, who spoke on the show, said that “it was a total annihilation of the Jews.  This priest did a mission to find the mass graves of the Jews.  He said that the Jews were buried like animals.

On the show, it was mentioned that in Moldava, the bodies are still there.

We were told, on the show, that the Jews were buried alive by the Einsatzgruppen in Lithuania.  The Einsatzgruppen killed Jews and Gypsies, shooting them so as to cause them to fall into a ditch, where the bodies were covered over with dirt.

Throughout the show, no reason for killing the Jews was given.  We were given to believe that the Jews were hated for no reason, and that the Einsatzgruppen were bad Germans who just liked to kill people for no reason whatsoever.

You can read the full story of the Einsatzgruppen on Wikipedia at

This quote is from the website, cited in the link above:

They [the Jews] lie in unmarked mass graves throughout the former Soviet Union, forgotten victims of the Holocaust whose stories haven’t been told. Father Patrick Desbois is determined to find them for history and for humanity. The French Catholic priest takes Lara Logan to some of the sites his work has discovered for a 60 Minutes story to be broadcast Sunday, October 4 at 7 p.m. ET/PT.

Unlike the victims of the gas chambers, whose names were meticulously recorded, victims of these mass killings remain mostly unknown and hidden.

End quote

Where can I find the names of the Jews who were murdered in the gas chambers?  They were meticulously recorded, according to the news story cited above.

I’m not blogging today…

I am taking a day off from blogging because there has been a death in the family.

I was planning to blog about Withold Pilecki.  You can read about him at

Feel free to discuss Withold Pilecki.

There is a lot of controversy about the will that was made out by my family member.  My advice to all my readers is that you should go to a competent lawyer, who specializes in drawing up wills. You might be tempted to go to Legal Zoom to do your will, but this could cause a lot of trouble.  It will cost you some money to go to a good lawyer, but in my humble opinion, it is worth it.
