The following quote is from the news article, cited above:

Begin quote

AUGUSTA — The Messalonskee High School Mastersingers performed for more than 200 people as part of the Holocaust Remembrance Day program at the Holocaust and Human Rights Center of Maine Sunday afternoon.

The group of nearly 40 singers performed eight “Songs of Darkness and Hope” which were sung by Jews during the Holocaust, including Ani Ma’amin, known to have been sung by dozens of Jews as they were marched to the gas chambers in Nazi death camps. The students worked on the project for nearly a year in preparation for their Yom HaShoah performances.

According to the official guide book for the Dachau camp, which I purchased on my first visit to the camp, the Jews were forced to sing on their way to work.

Begin quote from guidebook:

“Nevertheless, in the first years the concentration camps offered to the outside world a picture of diligence, order and cleanliness. Terror and oppression were not immediately noticeable. When official visitors were conducted around the camp, they saw sparkling clean barracks, well-tended flower beds, and – from a distance – prisoners marching to work singing.”

End quote

Did those evil Nazis really force the Jews to sing on their way to the gas chamber in Auschwitz, or were they singing on their way to work?

I wrote about the Jews singing on their way to the gas chamber on this previous blog post:

The following quote is from the same news article, cited above:

Begin quote

Yom HaShoah, as it is known in Israel and colloquially, commemorates the 6 million Jews killed during the Holocaust by Nazi Germany and its allies. [the American] Congress designated an eight-day period of remembrance from May 1-May 8 in 1980.

The next exhibit at the Holocaust and Human Rights Center of Maine, “Children’s Reactions to the Holocaust,” opens May 16 and runs until August 12.

End quote

What ever happened to separation of church and state in America? Apparently this doesn’t apply to the Holocaust religion.

  1. No doubt the song Hatikvah will be part of their Holo-playlist. The Big H is mainly Zionist propaganda after all…

  2. Did those evil Nazis really force the Jews to sing on their way to the gas chamber in Auschwitz…?

    Well:

    …known to have been sung by dozens of Jews as they were marched to the gas chambers…the 6 million Jews killed during the Holocaust

    If they did, they only forced “dozens” to sing (that song), whereas they killed “6 million” — so it could have been worse: they could have forced every one of the millions of Jews murdered in gas chambers to sing.

    These stories are so childish — it is fucking unbelievable.

    • Why would Jews have sung when marched to shower rooms in the first place? Except if they sang ‘We’re gonna be as clean as a whistle in 30 minutes,’ that makes no sense at all. This dumb narrative ‘omits’ that the Jews allegedly doomed to be gassed, were supposedly unaware of their imminent death. Why the alleged Nazi effort to make gas chambers look like shower rooms (and all the alleged other Nazi ‘secrecy’ tricks) when any Auschwitz inmate knew that he or she was going to be gassed to death within the following minutes as implied by this narrative? Ridiculous and nonsensical…

    • After studying some those photo images that you selected from the Auschwitz Album, I begin to feel sympathy for the SS personnel who had to process and look after these undesirable and (dare I say it, lest I’m accused of being an anti-Semitic hater) dirty, unwashed people. You’re quite right when you say that the scenes are reminiscent of the “Wild West”. Many of the menfolk look at least 80 years out of time, and I’m sure they would fit in well to a street scene from Dodge City back in 1862.

      • None of the Jews in the photos from the Auschwitz Album are singing on their way to the gas chambers, even though the captions clearly state that these people are shortly to be exterminated there. What the images do suggest, however, is that many of them are enjoying a nice picnic lunch among the grass and birch trees at the back of the Birkenau camp. I must admit, its probably better to be gassed on a full stomach, rather than go to one’s death feeling a bit peckish.
