When you google the word Holocaust, what comes up first?

Entrance to USHMM in Washington, DC

Out of curiosity, I googled the word Holocaust and the website of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum came up first in the search results.  Sorry, but I don’t think that the USHMM website is the best one to explain the True Believer side of the Holocaust story. Of course, there is nothing at all about the Holocaust denier side of the story. Whatever happened to the idea of a newspaper telling both sides of a story?

The following quote is from the beginning of the text on the USHMM website:

Begin quote

The Holocaust was the systematic, bureaucratic, state-sponsored persecution and murder of six million Jews by the Nazi regime and its collaborators. Holocaust is a word of Greek origin meaning “sacrifice by fire.” The Nazis, who came to power in Germany in January 1933, believed that Germans were “racially superior” and that the Jews, deemed “inferior,” were an alien threat to the so-called German racial community.

During the era of the Holocaust, German authorities also targeted other groups because of their perceived “racial inferiority”: Roma (Gypsies), the disabled, and some of the Slavic peoples (Poles, Russians, and others). Other groups were persecuted on political, ideological, and behavioral grounds, among them Communists, Socialists, Jehovah’s Witnesses, and homosexuals.

End quote

I don’t believe that the “German authorities” targeted anyone because of “racial inferiority.” Jehovah’s Witnesses” were targeted because they refused to serve in the German Army.  Homosexuals were targeted because homosexuality was against the law in Germany.  The Roma were targeted because everyone in Germany had to have a permanent address. The disabled were targeted because they were walking on all fours and were unable to function as human beings.

The USHMM building, shown in the photo above, which incorporates symbolic design features that are intended to be evocative of the Holocaust, was done in a modern architectural style, which Hitler would have called “degenerate.”

The USHMM was not designed to be a dull, boring documentation of historical fact, but rather it is intended to be an intensely personal experience in which the building itself is part of the exhibit. Nothing is spared to convey the horror of the Nazi tyranny and the annihilation of the Jews in Europe.

For visitors who know little or nothing about the Holocaust, a trip to the Museum is a gut-wrenching experience which could cause nightmares; it is not recommended for children under 11 years of age. However, a special exhibit, called Daniel’s Story, which is based on a book of fiction, is designed to introduce children as young as 6 to the basic facts of the Holocaust.

Located at 100 Raoul Wallenberg Place, the Holocaust museum is open from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. every day except Christmas Day and Yom Kippur, a Jewish religious holiday which falls on a different day each year, usually in the month of September.

At the beginning of 1933, according to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, there were 9 million Jews in all of Europe, including 568,417 in Germany, approximately 250,000 in Austria and 3,028,837 in Poland. On January 30, 1933, after Adolf Hitler had received 38% of the popular vote in the three-way 1932 German presidential election, he was appointed Chancellor of Germany by newly-reelected President Paul von Hindenburg. Two months later, Franklin D. Roosevelt was sworn in as the president of the United States.

In 1933, both America and Germany were in the throes of the Great Depression, caused by the stock market crash in 1929, but Germany was worse off because of its defeat in the first World War and the devastating terms of the Treaty of Versailles which Germany was forced to sign. Hitler blamed the loss of the war and all of Germany’s subsequent economic, social and political problems on the Jews.

Hitler’s first priority was to unite all the ethnic Germans in Europe under one government and one leader, himself. (“Ein Folk, Ein Reich, Ein Führer”) There would be no place for Jews or Gypsies in Hitler’s new Germany; only the Volkdeutsch (ethnic Germans) would be citizens.

Hitler planned to take back German land given to Poland after World War I, as well as the provinces of Alsace and Lorraine and other territory lost as a result of Germany’s defeat in World War I.

Hitler’s new Germany would be called Gross Deutschland (Greater Germany). Historians would call Hitler’s regime “the Third Reich.” The first Reich was the Holy Roman Empire of the German nation and the second Reich was the unification of the German states in 1871.

The capital of Gross Deutschland was to be Germania, which was Hitler’s new name for the city of Berlin. Hitler and his state architect, Albert Speer, began designing magnificent new state buildings in the classic style of Greek and Roman architecture, but none of these buildings were ever built. Hitler envisioned that his nationalist empire, which he called the Thousand Year Reich, would defeat the Communists, and after the demise of the Communists, Germany would be the dominant country in a Jew-free Europe.

Twelve years later, at the end of the World War II, both Hitler and Roosevelt were dead, along with 6 million Jews, which was two-thirds of the total number of Jews in Europe in 1933.

Berlin had been reduced to a pile of rubble and Washington, DC was now the undisputed capital of the free world. Hitler’s Third Reich will be remembered for a thousand years, but as the empire which tried to destroy the Jews and failed, not as the glorious empire that Hitler had envisioned.

In the aftermath of World War II, Germany was divided into two new countries and Austria became independent again. Germany lost more territory and the ethnic Germans were scattered more than ever before. Soon after the defeat of Germany and its Fascist allies, the eastern half of Germany and all of Eastern Europe came under the control of our allies and Germany’s arch enemies, the Communists.

In order to hold back the threat of Communism to America, West Germany was made our new ally in 1948 and the Cold War against our former ally, the Communist Soviet Union, became the prime source of anxiety for Americans.

During this period, Americans were mainly concerned with building bomb shelters in their back yards, in preparation for the anticipated nuclear war; they had no interest in learning about the destruction of European Jewry in the last war. The word Holocaust was not yet in general use.

  2. Reading all the comments I believe that the only denomination for the extermination of Jews started by the Nazis is the hebrew word SHOAH., not Holocaust wich means a volutary selfsacrifice and can be turned in “selfdestruction” as stated by the Nazi philopher Heidegger, lover of Hanna Arendt. SHOAH can be translated here with DISASTER ot CATASTROPHE.

    Comment by Wolf Murmelstein — February 18, 2016 @ 10:09 am

    • According to Wikipedia, the word Holocaust is used by most people, but Shoah is used by the Jews. Most people in America do no know the meaning of the word Shoah.

      Comment by furtherglory — February 18, 2016 @ 11:08 am

    • Okay I’m confused. The definition of holocaust is;destruction or slaughter on a mass scale,especially by fire or nuclear war. They had a “historical meaning”. A Jewish sacrificial offering which is burned completely on an altar. Does that have anything to do with the word you were using?

      According to the 1948 book ‘Unity in Dispersion’ by the World Jewish Congress, the Jewish catastrophe/shoah ran from 1933 to 1945. So the word ‘shoah’ shouldn’t be used to name the alleged extermination of the Jews by the Nazis. Otherwise, one should claim the Nazis [allegedly] began to gas Jews in 1933.

      • HERMIE. WJC fugures knew nothing than and now the same.. Increasing events of violences and discriminations occured from 1919 on. The mass murder by gassing started with the gas vans in 1941 and in the Gas Chambers at the Death Camps at December 1941 at Belsec and in spring 1942 at the other Death Camps.
        So, among friends. The WJC leaders in the time of need had been highly ineffective and than launched heavy accusations against the Jewish leaders – allmost all martyrs – who stood in the European hell facing the nazi-fascists. Clear?

        • wolf wrote: “WJC fugures knew nothing than and now the same.. Increasing events of violences and discriminations occured from 1919 on.”

          The WJC called the era between 1919 and 1933 ‘the [Jewish] crisis’ (in their book ‘Unity in Dispersion’).

          wolf wrote: “The WJC leaders in the time of need had been highly ineffective and than launched heavy accusations against the Jewish leaders – allmost all martyrs – who stood in the European hell facing the nazi-fascists. Clear?”

          Once again, they were not highly ineffective. Their Zionist agenda required the worsening of the lot of Europe’s Jewry (especially the Jewry of Central and Eastern Europe, targeted by Zionism since its inception, living in an area that some Zionists used to call their ‘Distress Zone’). So they made their best to have you and your fellows singled out as Jews and persecuted by the Nazis and other regimes in Central & Eastern Europe. They knew the predictable result of their world boycott on German goods, their giant anti-German mass rallies in New York and London, their ceaseless media campaign of vilifying atrocity propaganda against Nazi Germany, their formal declaration of war on Germany on the behalf of all the Jews (Chaim Weizmann’s declaration of war on August 29, 1939), and so on. Their provocations worked perfectly well and brought the expected results. They were in fact highly effective. You just misunderstand their real intentions. Why, in your opinion, would a gang of diehard Zionists such as the leaders of the WJC have wanted an improvement of your lot in Europe and so also a cancellation of the reasons potentially turning you into a settler for the land of Palestine? That would have made no sense at all. They didn’t work to strenghten Assimilationism but to prove it was doomed to fail. And fueling anti-Semitism in Europe was their best weapon to do that.

          Comment by hermie — February 20, 2016 @ 7:46 am

          • HERMIE. The WJC figures Stephen Wise and Nahum Goldmann had been only highly ineffective when other Jewish leaders stood in the hell facing the Nazis. As to their supposed zionist agenda remember that Nahum Goldmann tried to prevent Ben Gurion to declare the establshment of the State of Israel.

            • wolf wrote: “The WJC figures Stephen Wise and Nahum Goldmann had been only highly ineffective when other Jewish leaders stood in the hell facing the Nazis.”

              There would be no alleged ‘Nazi hell’ in the orthodox narrative of the pre-WW2 era and WW2 without the WJC figures, Stephen Wise, Nahum Goldmann, Peter H. Bergson, Yitzhak Gruenbaum, Jacob Robinson and a few other Zionist leaders. Their own atrocity propaganda was turned into ‘history’ after the war. You could at least be grateful to them for that.

              wolf wrote: “As to their supposed zionist agenda remember that Nahum Goldmann tried to prevent Ben Gurion to declare the establshment of the State of Israel.”

              When? Why?

              In late 1946 and early 1947, Nahum Goldmann was the Zionist leader who devised and secured the partition plan of Palestine which finally gave birth to the state of Israel – the ‘Goldmann Plan’. Your pathetic attempt to turn Goldmann into a non-Zionist or even anti-Zionist Jew is utterly ridiculous. But let’s see where that leads. I feel like laughing today. 😉

  3. I am considered as a SPECIAL CHILD SURVIVOR as my late Father stood in the first line in the fight for survival. I realized that in order to study the true SHOAH history – called here Holocaust – we ought to consider the conditions which made possible the rise on power of Hitler and other dictators. Furthermore we ought to look at decades – from the seventies of century XIX on – of increasing anti-Semit literature and violences. I have looked at two time tables and found that they start with 1933 when Hitler had caught the power in Germany. Indeed, Martin Gilbert starts in his timetable listing the Russian Pogroms, the Dreyfus Trial and so on. I am angry. Will watch other sites..

    Comment by Wolf Murmelstein — February 18, 2016 @ 12:03 am

    • What are Russian Pogroms? As far as Alfred Dryfus is concerned,how much dud antisemitism affect the outcome of his trial? I ask because after he was sent to lockdown at Devils Island,something popped up,stating there was a cover up dealing with his trial

          • At least you and Mr. Irving can be sure you won’t be plagiarized by the Tribe on that one. A Jew asking ‘Why us?’, nobody has ever seen such a thing…

    • I am angry.

      Hello Wolf, sorry that you are angry/offended — I hope you will be back soon.

    • Wolfe even though I think you jews got off easy as most of you just were put in work camps working. You all seem to jump on the bandwagon to think that you had some special targeting from the Germans to eliminate you because you think you’re so special. I guess you fail to see that the way you used operate in the towns or cities that you live in is the reason why Hitler came after you in the first place. Most of the Jews were of communist origin or at least backup the communist they were subversive treasonous people.
      You failed to mentioned in 1933 that the Jews in the United States organized and boycotted Germany and the goods so they’re the ones that short the first shot to come against the Germans so Hitler had perfect right around you people up and put you in camps that contain you because you were out to bring that country down. If you did this in the United States the same thing would have happened so you make it sound like everything was fine with you people you didn’t do anything wrong but you Jews were the first ones to come out to Hitler and he just responded and now you’re all upset about it of course in 1938 Hitler on wanred to move you all from the country anyway but that didn’t work out 100% and he had to deal with you. Hitler’s plan was to deport of all you people after the war but it didn’t turn out that way since there still was a good amount of you around Hitler have to do something with you and that’s why he put you in the camps and the ghettos but of course you turn it into its all about YOU Jews being exterminated.
      Another thing that bothers me about you is the fact that you were just a very little boy at the time so everything that you learned about this came from your father can I really have doubts that you were told the true story anyway so you were just parroting second hand information that you didn’t even see happened like most of the Jewish stories You embellish a lot and then all the sudden you are the victims when in reality you were the avaricious Villians.
      I still don’t understand why you complain so much the Jews got plenty of compensation for their work time in the camps you got great victim status everyone feel sorry for you you accomplished what you wanted to accomplish you should feel proud of yourself, where we in this world have to look at you in disgust because of how you scammed everybody with your Holohoax lies.
      Hasn’t 75 years of scaming everyone been enough for you?

  4. “Holocaust” was in extensive use prior to its appropriation for reference to German-Jewish interactions after 1933. In its prior usage, it almost always came after the word “nuclear.”

    How it was used prior to 1945, I wouldn’t know. No nuclear holocausts then, though.

    Comment by Jett Rucker — February 17, 2016 @ 12:31 pm

    • That popped up as the 2nd one. Guess they figure if people look up holocaust,then they “have to” being looking for the Jewish holocaust. God forbid they’re looking for any other type.

    • The use of ” Holocaust ” to describe the events 1933-1945 with respect to the European Jews came into the general discourse in the mid 1980 s . Prior to that I agree it had many uses and was often associated with a nuclear event. It is now one of the world’s most rapidly growing cults and has official status in many countries including Germany.

      • Peter wrote: “The use of ” Holocaust ” to describe the events 1933-1945 with respect to the European Jews came into the general discourse in the mid 1980 s.”

        True. First introduced with the Zionist over-one-year-long media circus orchestrated by ‘Nazi’ Crypto-Jew Frank Collin (aka Joseph Cohen) at Skokie, Illinois in 1977-78, and the NBC miniseries ‘Holocaust’ in 1978.

        Peter wrote: “Prior to that I agree it had many uses and was often associated with a nuclear event.”

        A word often used as a synonym of war. During WW1 (and WW2 too), the war itself was often called ‘the holocaust’. In Judaism, a holocaust was a sacrificial ‘burnt offering’ cremated on a pyre accessible only through a ramp (obvious inspiration for the alleged death camps’ ‘Judenrampe’ in Holo-tales).

  6. What you have here is the Hollywood version of the Holocaust. This is the version that they want people to see foremost but if you’re ambitious and you like to do a lot of research and dig a lot deeper into the internet you will find what the truth is. if you look up topics like Holocaust deniers Holohoax, revisionism, holocaust liars, HoloHoaxers, any deviation of those words of course the main line revisionist are out there telling the truth you definitely will find the truth.
    All you can stay with the Hollywood version that is based on lies and misinformation and you will find that you have a great fictional book or movie to watch or read whatever. If that’s where you’re coming from then you have plenty to see cuz there’s thousands and thousands of people that are lying about this topic.
    Oddly enough I probably produced the most videos from one person that is dealing with the topic. Sadly many of them are banned in the 19 countries where free speech and free thought is not permitted for people to investigate this issue.
    What particularly got me interested in the topic of the Holocaust was the fact that they put all this time and effort in stopping people who have another side of the story. I couldn’t understand why would that be if the truth stands on its own merit why stop these people that logically present their side of it. Why do they they come after these people and put them in jail for hsving an opinion. That’s what got me into it because that is not how you deal with the topic by preventing other people from presenting their case so that showed me right from the beginning that the people who believe in the Holocaust from the official Jewish version have something to hide. Then when I did my investigation even more so and I found out that the majority of the people that were used in testimony for the holocaust topic actually heard the information second hand or they were just outright liars. As I did more investigation and came to find out that the Nuremberg trials that everybody keeps pointing to as being a place where all the Germans admitted what was going on actually was a show trial against the German people as a whole and most of the testimony that was given was either paid false witnesses or just plain vindictive people that had an axe to grind against the Germans. As you look back at the Nuremberg trials now and the other trials that came later you will see that the majority of the information presented in court was not true. Some famous people have even said that the trials were a farce again showing that the Jews and the Allies had a story to tell and they were going to tell it no matter who was hurt in the process and even killed so hopefully people will open up their minds and hearts to what the truth is and this website here is an excellent place to learn some of the truths having to do with the holocaust topic.
