Jews who were “saved from the horror that the Nazis imposed on the continent of Europe”

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust — furtherglory @ 8:31 am

Today I am commenting on a news article which you can read in full at http://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/.premium-1.731810

The title of my blog post is a quote from the news article, cited above.

During World II, Theresienstadt was a prison camp for Jews; it was known as the “Paradise Ghetto”.

I have a section on my website about Theresienstadt at: http://www.scrapbookpages.com/CzechRepublic/Theresienstadt/TheresienstadtGhetto/index.html

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

Israeli crowdfunding site Headstart added an unusual project last month: An appeal to raise 20,000 shekels ($5,180) to publish the diary of a teenage girl who chronicled the last days of the Theresienstadt ghetto.

Alisa (Alice) Ehrmann Shek wrote her journal in Theresienstadt (also known as Terezin concentration camp) when she was 17. The Beit Theresienstadt museum – an educational center and museum located in Kibbutz Givat Haim Ihud – is behind the funding project. “The diary has only been seen by historians in the field of Holocaust research,” says Beit Theresienstadt’s director, Tami Kinberg. “It represents the only documentation of its type of the last days of the Terezin ghetto.”

With two weeks to go, three-quarters of the target has already been raised on Headstart.

The interesting thing about this news story is that Alisa (Alice) Ehrmann had nothing to complain about during World War II. She was treated well in “the Paradise ghetto.” She survived, and her husband, who volunteered to go to Auschwitz, also survived.  Yet, her diary will become a book because every word, ever written by a Jew, is precious. The goyim must bow down and worship the Jews at every opportunity.

Where are the diaries of the Germans who suffered during World War II? Few of the Germans were writing diaries, as they cowered in underground bomb shelters.

After World War II ended, some of the perpetrators of the alleged genocide of the Jews eluded justice, but most of them were captured, brought to trial, and swiftly executed.

Two of the Commandants of Theresienstadt, Karl Rahm and Siegfried Seidl, were executed after being convicted in courts in Litomerice and Vienna.

Karl Rahm was the last Commandant of Theresienstadt; he served from February 8, 1944 to May 5, 1945 when he escaped after handing the camp over to the Red Cross. Rahm was captured in Austria and charged with crimes against humanity for his part in sending some of the Jews to Auschwitz.

The third Commandant of Theresienstadt, Anton Burger, and the camp inspector, Karl Bergel, managed to escape from justice, although they were both tried in absentia and condemned to death. From 1945 to 1948, the Small Fortress was used as a prison where German war criminals awaited trial and subsequent execution for their crimes against humanity.

In other words, the Nazis got no credit for treating the Jews well at Theresienstadt, nor at other camps.

      Wolf Murmelstein is gone, but not forgotten. We miss him. He is probably in a hospital, fighting for his life. We wish him well.

        Or he just decided to stop reading and posting comments on your blog because that had deleterious effets on his health and mood. I have vague memories of him saying that his doctors had advised him to do that.
