it is almost impossible to grasp the gravity of the Holocaust

Filed under: Holocaust — furtherglory @ 8:25 am

The title of my blog post comes from a line in this news article, which is about this year’s March of the Living.  If you don’t know what the March of the Living is, I can’t help you. You are too far out of the loop.

O.K. I will take pity on you and tell you about the March of the Living and the Ride of the Living: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/tag/ride-of-the-living/

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

Perhaps the reason we struggle to comprehend the Holocaust is because it is almost impossible to grasp its gravity. I find myself mourning the lives of six million strangers. The Holocaust to me is the ghetto wall of Warsaw, the empty synagogue of Tykocin, the mass grave of children in Kielce, the gas chambers of Auschwitz, and the train tracks of Birkenau. It is the unfinished story of every life that ended prematurely due to terror and unjust hatred. It is one of the most horrific events in history and it is our job as human beings to stand in united opposition of prejudice and all those who would seek to take up the practice of genocide.

End quote

Here are some of my photographs which illustrate the places mentioned in the news article, plus a photo that I took of the gate into the Dachau camp.

  1. More kids survived then they want you to know they want you to think that all the kids were killed in the camps but then we have all these Holocaust Survivors children out there telling their stories you can’t have it both ways.

    • Is that why only 8 Jewish children survived Majdanek?

      • You wrote: “Is that why only 8 Jewish children survived Majdanek?”

        I think that there were more than 8 children who survived, although they might have been non-Jewish children.
        This quote about the children at Majdanek is from my own website:

        Begin quote:

        According to a Museum booklet, a large percentage of the inmates at Majdanek were “rural people” or “peasants.” Some of these Polish civilians had been imprisoned as resistance fighters after they had been ejected from their homes as part of the German plan to colonize Poland, which the Nazis referred to as “the German east.” Others were from Byelorussia, a province of the Soviet Union known to Americans as White Russia, where women and children were taken prisoner in reprisal for heavy partisan fighting in that area. The Polish peasants were not shown among the survivors in the movie because they had taken the opportunity to escape while the Germans and the Russians were fighting a last-ditch battle for the city of Lublin, which lasted for two days.”

  2. and im sure Eric played the “show your arm” trick

    No, he didn’t — Hunt had legal representation — on the witness stand, Wiesel was asked directly if he had tattoo A7713 — he said, under oath, that he did — there was no follow-up request by defense counsel that he show his tattoo in court — it is certain that the prosecution would have objected to that, and also certain that the court would have upheld the objection — that’s just the way the establishment behaves in these matters.

    he literally doesn’t give you people the attention you demands

    A rather convenient excuse/justification — does anyone imagine Wiesel is unaware of the controversy about the tattoo? — of course he is aware of it — so why doesn’t he shut all those ‘deniers’ up by simply showing the tattoo? — what does he/could he possibly have against that? — many other ‘survivors’ willingly show their tattoos — in fact, many do so at any/every opportunity.

    Given the circumstances, people are going to/are entitled to ask: Is Elie Wiesel a perjurer?

    But Wiesel has a perfectly understandable reason for refusing to show his tattoo:

    Wiesel Lost “Everything” to Madoff

    Wiesel acknowledged that in addition to having lost his foundation’s assets, he lost his personal wealth to Madoff…His foundation, the Elie Wiesel Foundation for Humanity, lost substantially all of its $15.2 million in assets to Madoff; including his personal investments, total losses may be as high as $37 million.

    So Wiesel reportedly lost approx $20m of his personal fortune in the Madoff scandal — which of course means he was able to amass that fortune in the first place — Elie Wiesel has become a rather wealthy and famous man, feted around the world, all and only via his ‘Holocaust’ persona, including the claim he has a tattoo — the revelation that he has no tattoo would be disastrous to all that.

    The fotos posted here, purportedly to show that tattoos “fade” over time, are absurd — they do not “fade” to the point of being invisible, which the fotos do actually prove.

    The news article extract that FG quotes above would be more truthfully expressed like this;-

    Perhaps the reason we struggle to comprehend the holohoax is because it is almost impossible to grasp its absurdity. I find myself mourning the lives of six million phantoms. The holohoax to me is the Hollywood movie; the mainstream media; the compensation racket; the mass classrooms of children being indoctrinated; the pantomime stage-set of Auschwitz; the “survivors” fairy tales of Birkenau. It is the unfinished story of milking a non-existent event to death, that could end prematurely due to the general public waking up and realising that they’ve been “had”. It is one of the most horrific scams in history and it is our job as human beings to stand in united opposition to falsehood and all those who would seek to take up the practice of lying.

    Yet, somehow, deniers have no evidence otherwise.

  5. They really should interview a real Holocaust Survivor who has just come out of the closet from 75 years of hiding.
    The pain was just too much for him….Lucky for you we found one. He even comes with a super special tattoo.

    • Jim… This is exactly why your youtube channel was taken down… Cause you posted idiotic things like the following.

      Comment by Lóegaire — June 30, 2016 @ 9:40 am

      • Elie has now admitted that he was never in a camp. I wrote about this at https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2016/01/08/elie-wiesel-admits-that-he-has-no-concentration-camp-tattoo/

        Comment by furtherglory — June 30, 2016 @ 9:51 am

        • Beyond Carolyn Yeagers email, what evidence is there of this? Well FG?

          Also why are you linking this? What does my comment have to do with Elie Wiesel. It’s a very simple point that his channel was taken down cause of is humor.

          Comment by Lóegaire — June 30, 2016 @ 10:03 am

          • Elie Wiesel has admitted that he is a fraud. I wrote about this years ago at https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2012/01/20/should-elie-wiesel-come-clean/

            Comment by furtherglory — June 30, 2016 @ 10:17 am

            • Again he never admitted, read the page FG, read the page you link as your source. They are claiming admission cause he doesn’t respond to deniers. To bad for this claim as generally survivors don’t respond.

              Now again as stated FG, Give an actual statement from Elie Himself which states that he was never at Auschwtiz. Down to the last word. If you do not have this, then your completely are just relying of Yeager, which doesn’t count. Elie still according to everything I have seen still claims to both have a Tattoo and to have been at Auschwtiz.

              There is no argument.

                I wrote about Elie’s admission that he was never in any camp on this blog post:

                • That is not an open admission, nore is it even an admission. He swore and the Hunt trial to have the tattoo and im sure Eric played the “show your arm” trick. His unwillingness to respond to deniers is not an admission, it’s that he literally doesn’t give you people the attention you demands.

                  There is no direct statement in your blog FG. This is no admission and Yeagers writing to try and debunk the image which shows his tattoo are very poor.

                  Yeager tried to argue that tattoos are large, but this is not always true. As somethings they are small.

                  Sometimes they are large.

                  Some times they are readable

                  Some times they are faded.

                  Sorry to say it but Tattoos fade over time.

                  This is why I’m not going to rely on Yeager.

          • You wrote: “It’s a very simple point that his channel was taken down cause of is [his] humor.”

            Jim is an American citizen, so he has freedom of speech. The 19 countries that have laws against freedom of speech with regard to the Holocaust can legally take down his video, but in America, this is against the Constitution which guarantees freedom of speech.

            Comment by furtherglory — June 30, 2016 @ 10:57 am

            • Yeah but even if he has free speech, he also has to follow YouTubes Terms of agreement. On that website the Terms of Agreement stand over Jims rights to freedom of speech FG.

              Do you understand this or no?

              YouTube doesn’t provent him from having an opinion, it will provent him from uploading idiotic things like dressing up as an Orthodox Jew to advertise his website.

              You do understand that YouTube is not “America”… Right?

              Comment by Lóegaire — June 30, 2016 @ 11:24 am

              • You wrote: “he also has to follow YouTubes Terms of agreement.”

                I have never tried to put anything up on YouTube, so I don’t know the terms of agreement. Which terms of agreement did Jim violate, which caused his video to be taken down?

                Comment by furtherglory — June 30, 2016 @ 12:29 pm

                • They have policy that stands against offensive videos, in which Jims video (like the one we have seen) would fall under offensive. Though generally people can upload what ever content they please, and tons of videos by holocaust deniers are still up without problem. Generally it will only get your video age restricted, but if enough people flag videos like Jims ‘humor’ video above… It can have it taken down and put as a strike. You get 3 strikes your channel is down and technically your not supposed to make a new channel after that.

                  So let’s just say Jims videos like his “Holohoax 101” series would be alright. His video above where he pretends to have a tattoo will generally get flagged. Mind I do understand YouTube has a lot more offensive content, mostly as an active consumer of it I can say pretty well it’s quite funny. But generally the YouTube community has its standards. And if you upload what they may find to be racist, it will be taken down. This would mean videos like when Jim pretended to be an Orthodox Jew and to have a tattoo would be flagged. And no it’s not the video you can see here.

                  He’s dressed as a Hasidic Jew and the tattoo on his arms is a smiley face. Generally people view this kind of humor in a revolting fashion and will flag the video.

                  It’s not exactly fair I guess. But it’s how YouTube makes money. It’s off ad-revenue and well Jims videos like that are arguably ‘intolerant’. I use that wording lightly.

                  Comment by Lóegaire — June 30, 2016 @ 6:01 pm

        • Also the reason for saying it was the way he dressed up as an inmate -.-

          Comment by Lóegaire — June 30, 2016 @ 10:05 am

    • You pronounced Eli Wiesel’s name as E-lie. Was this deliberate? I think that his name is correctly pronounced as E-lee with the accent on E. His last name is prounounced VEE-sell or sometimes as Vee-SELL. In any case, Elee has now admitted that he is a fraud; he was never in any camp.

      Comment by furtherglory — June 30, 2016 @ 9:48 am

    • Jim, I’d expect a man of your age to have a more advanced sense of humor, something higher than a 10-year-old.

      Comment by Jeff K. — June 30, 2016 @ 11:11 am

      • I don’t really understand why you would expect him to have a sense of humor… The guy just quotes inflated testimony calling it evidence for his side…

        I pretty much would expect a simplistic sense of humor… He seems like someone who’s into dry humor.

        Comment by Lóegaire — June 30, 2016 @ 11:31 am

    • Yeah, but what was your job in the death camp – playing the trombone in the orchestra; being a lifeguard at the swimming pool; or handing out the condoms at the brothel? Maybe you held the ladder steady while the SS guard climbed up on to the gas chamber roof to pour in the Zyklon B pellets.
