The photo above shows Settela looking through a window on a freight train bound for Auschwitz-Birkenau.

You can read about the Roma and Sinti in this recent news article:

http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4836557,00.html

One must never call these people “Gypsies” which implies that they gyp people. Years ago, the word Gypsy was created for these innocent people who have never gypped anyone.

I previously blogged about these people at https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2011/02/05/famous-photo-of-settela-steinbach-a-gypsy-girl-who-was-gassed-at-auschwitz/

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

WARSAW, Poland (AP) — Roma Holocaust survivors and community leaders paid tribute at the former Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp Tuesday to its Roma and Sinti victims who, like the Jews, were condemned to destruction under Nazi Germany’s murderous ideology. […]

Commemorations are held every year on Aug. 2, marking the day in 1944 when the last group of nearly 2,900 Roma and the closely related Sinti at the Nazi camp in occupied Poland were killed in the gas chambers.

End quote

I have a page on my website about the Gypsy Museum at the former Sachsenhausen concentration camp: http://www.scrapbookpages.com/Sachsenhausen/MemorialSite/GypsyMuseum.html

    Jett already talked about his Jewish wife in some of his past comments.

    Did you just miss that? Or did you forget that he did mention his wife? Yet, your memory seems excellent.

      I have been blogging for over 6 years, and I have read millions of comments. I don’t remember “a Jewish wife”. If I did read that, I would have thought that it was a joke.

      • Have you ever done an article on quotes Hitler had made? I know this is off topic,but since you made this comment,I will be able to ask you directly,if you’ve ever wrote any articles like that. I ask,because I was going over some of his quotes awhile back. Now I’m not trying to defend him one way or another,but I didn’t run across any quotes that advocated,killing a group of people,based on their race. I’m not saying he may not have made any. I just didn’t run across any. I figure the way most of the Internet is run by liberal pukes,that would be a gold mine,if they could put up quotes by Hitler advocating the extinction of a race,because he didn’t agree with the race. I ran across more questionable quotes by Papa Joe,than I did Hitler. Hitler made a quote that went,” whoever lights the torch for war in Europe,can wish for nothing but chaos”. Not much gray area there. Stalin was just as straight forward too. He made a quote,”death is the solution to all problems. No man,no problem”. Clearly,murder was his answer to all the problems. I read something about Will Rogers boy. He was a politician in ’42 and ’43. It said in ’43 he joined a committee called,” emergency committee to save the Jews in Europe “. To me that shit sounded like one big ass facade. From what I read,the state department tried to block any actions to rescue Jews . They claimed we’d already taken a shit load of Jews into America (that’s kinda funny,considering we turned boat loads of Jews away. They “talked”,about setting up refugee camps for the Jews in Switzerland,Spain and some other countries. In ’43 there was a Gallup poll. They asked people of they thought the holo was real . 47% thought it was real.,30% saw it as a rumor. The remaining balance didn’t give a shit one way or another. I don’t think those 47% knew about our government trying to shoot down any plan to help the Jews . If they did know about that,they would’ve been asking the federal government,”why ain’t you trying to help those people out,”? We clearly didn’t give a shit about the Jews and what may or may not have happened to the Jews . Yet whenever Nuremberg rolls around,we were quick to wag our fingers at the nazis in the courtroom. Shits pitiful

          • The reason I asked is because when I juxtaposed Hitler with Stalin,Stalin seems to be the one with inflammatory remarks. Some of his remarks show he places little value on the individual. In one of his remarks,he pretty much tell the folks his idea on how to grab real estate. He had somewhat of an idea as to how the human mind functioned. At the end of the though,he still reminds me of some “good ol boy”,at the bar on Saturday night. Looking just to knock back a few and get into a fight. Once again,I’m not saying Hitler was perfect. He did however have a great insight as to how the human mind worked. He placed a high value on his Christian faith. He knew how to speak to people. A person might even say,he somehow was able to see the future. I’m not saying that in the “supernatural” sense either. This quote ain’t verbatim,but it goes something like this. ” Germany will either be a world power,or it will not be at all”. Some people might say that’s somewhat of a defeatist attitude,I just call it being a realist. I figure a person might need to look at a time frame as to when he made these quotes. I’m guessing some were made before he came to power. If that’s the case,it shows ( from my point of view) he had a game plan. He wasn’t gonna jump into this without somewhat of a direction. Papa Joe on the other hand seems to put little value on human life and just looks to gain everything through force. However like I said,I still don’t see where Hitler was promoting the murder of a group of people,just because they were not inline with him.

        I guess you don’t check all the comments posted on your blog. Otherwise, as you said, you could probably remember Jett’s Jewish wife.

        And thanks for all the work you’ve done so far running this interesting blog. Appreciated. All the best…

        • You wrote: “… you could probably remember Jett’s Jewish wife.”

          That brings up the question: Why would any Jewish woman marry Jett Rucker?

          Comment by furtherglory — August 10, 2016 @ 1:39 pm

          • Perhaps because he’s not anti-Semitic or because he wasn’t when he married. Or because anti-Semites are not haters (unlike what is often told by kosher media for obvious reasons) but merely people resisting against the rise of Semitism (i.e. Jewish dominance). For a definite answer, It would be best to ask Jett.

              Perhaps he married for money. He mentioned one time that he lives in a rich neighborhood, implying that he lives in a Jewish neighborhood.

              • Yesterday, my blog set an all time record for the number of people reading it. It also set an all time record for the number of people in Germany who are reading it. I hope that the German readers are Jewish; otherwise they could go to prison for reading what I write.

                • The old adage,”truth hurts,don’t it” might come into the picture for a couple of them. Let me ask a question. Are there any young Jews out there that don’t buy into what their parents or grand parents told them of the holo?

                  Comment by Tim — August 11, 2016 @ 9:46 am

                  I don’t think so. Jewish education about the Holocaust begins in the first grade, or even in kindergarten. Even in public schools in America, Holocaust education begins in kindergarten.

                • I understand that,but the way kids are now days,a lot of them don’t accept the first thing they’re handed. I’ve also known some,that could give 2 shits one way or another. When I was in Nam,I served with Jeff Krulik ( I don’t know if his last name is spelled right). He was first generation Jew from Germany born here. He said his folks came over here in ’38 or ’39. They just got married and wanted to come to America ( them leaving Germany,had nothing to do with Hitler). I asked him one day about the holo ( that was back when I thought history told the truth). His only answer was,”what do you want me to say?” He told me when he finished his tour in Nam,he was gonna go back home,and start a life for himself. He told me whatever happened back then,he ain’t got time to mess with it. He didn’t give a shit one way or another. He wasn’t the kind of person that dwelled on the past. If someone crossed him,he’d educate them and move on. Thats kinda what I meant. Are there any young Jews out there that question what they were taught. Are there any out there like Wolf ( that was jeffs nickname . We called him Sgt. Wolf. I don’t know how he got that moniker). Ones that don’t concern themselves with the past,because they’re trying to build a future for them and theirs. Some kids now days are pretty damn smart. They think back on what school taught them,and they think,”something is really f–ked up with some of the shit I was taught”. Like Paul Simon sang one time,”when I think back on all the crap,I learned in high school,it’s a wonder,I can think at all”.

                Cynical theory…😉

                Comment by hermie — August 11, 2016 @ 4:54 pm

                • Possibly cynical. The bigger question, is, why did he mention that he “lived in a rich neighborhood? I don’t see what the significance of that was. It most certainly don’t have any effect on the topic at hand. I’ve known people before,that fling that kinda shit around. They think that shit sets them above the herd. I’m not saying thats why Jeff mentioned it. I’m not sure what article he made the comment on. I would have to read his entire comment,in order to figure out,how his statement of a expensive house,had any thing to do with the topic at hand

                  Instead of guess-works, it would be easier to just ask him about that next time he posts a comment on this blog. IMO, he merely became a ‘denier’ when he was already married and he mentioned his rich neighborhood for a reason related to the topic at hand. I can’t help much because I don’t remember that he mentioned his rich neighborhood.

                • How did this question come up in the first place? Maybe I can ask that “anonymous ” person on here. He ( or she) ,seems to be jeffs,unofficial cheering section. Then again I’m still waiting on anonymous to figure out why I bought up Max Schmeling. He (or she) seems to be under the impression I wanted to talk boxing. If I’m gonna talk about boxing,I’m gonna talk about Genlteman Jim Corbett,John L Sullivan Bob Fitzsimmons,bare knuckle,50 to 75 round fights. That’s boxing. Roberto Duran,Mike Tyson or Sugar Ray ain’t gone shit on the bare knuckle fighters. Especially considering John Sullivan would be drinking whiskey and honey when he fought.

    • Jeffs wife is Jewish ? How did this topic pop up? All the Jews I knew in Florida,unless you were Jewish,you didn’t marry into the family. I’m not saying all Jews are,but the ones I knew could be snot nosed pricks at times. I remember from the movie “Good Fellas”,the character of,”Henry Hill”. There was one part in the movie where his future wife Karen,was taking Hill to meet her parents. They were getting ready to go inside,when she told Hill to hide his crucifix he was wearing. No sooner than he did that,her mother opens the door. The first thing she say,” Henry is half Jewish mom”. That’s pretty much the attitude the Jews had that I knew. Wether you were a good person or not,was of no import. They were more concerned if a person was Jewish or not. The way I was raised,you don’t judge a person on their roots or skin color

I think we’ll let you outta your cage sometime,so you can go educate the liberals in the world. However,please make sure you clean up your messes each time you destroy the liberals.

        • His name is “Jett”? Don’t I feel like the f–kin asshole ( I have a good amount of experience with that feeling) now. There’s a Jeff here too,right? Without my glasses,the Ts,look like,lower case,Fs. Okay. Which one lives in Grapevine? Well I don’t wanna go on yammering to the wrong “J”,talking about Tejas,if they don’t live here. Course that wouldn’t be a big deal. I’d just look like an idiot. That’s something else I’m well versed in. I have heard another male use the name,”Jett” before. It was on one of those local daytime talk shows in Houston . This gal had a male prostitute on her show named Jett. She did this show at the same time the movie “American Gigolo” was released. Poor gal didn’t realize there is a difference between gigolos and male prostitutes. Everybody that watched the show pretty much came away with the same view

  2. How come the Jews never promote the rememberance date for this shit. Gypsies implies they gyp people. I remember you said you were told by a German tour guide when you were in Germany,” wear your back pack on the front. That way the gypsies can’t boost your shit that’s in the back pack. It was something like that.

      On my first trip to Poland, back in 1998, the first thing that my American tour guide did was to point out a Gypsy to me, so that I would be able to recognize one. She was one of the two people, who told me to wear my backpack in front. The other person, that told me this, was a Jewish tour guide.

  3. How do they explain the large number of Gypsies living in Czecho-Slovakia, Hungary and Romania after the war?

    Comment by imdubious — August 9, 2016 @ 10:04 am

    • How do they explain the millions of Jews who survived?
      Jeff….we found you survivors who were sent to Treblinka and didn’t come back…LOL
      Bottom line Under 500,000 Jews, camp internees died in all the camps while millions survived enough to collect reparations…..
      Like 4 million of them, or so they say….of course many could be double dipping.
      From what I’m reading there were not that many Jews even around most left by 1939.
      It kinda reminds me of bus accidents in Boston the bus takes of with 20 people has an accident and 50 are reported on the bus….LOL
      The Jews are the bus accident after the fact….

  4. The “Gypsies” were rounded up because they weren’t the greatest people to have roaming around as they were noted for their corrupt ways. So now we have people that had dubious and corrupt ways of life being honored….not any different than what goes on in the political arena here today.

  5. I know a LOT of Jews (all my neighbors). Married one, too. I’m almost the only Gentile I know. Our kids are (very) secular.

    Don’t know any Gypsies but have found my occasional past contacts with them disagreeable.
