what the world needs now is more Holocaust museums

You might think that the world has enough Holocaust museums and monuments, but you would be wrong. The world can never have enough Holocaust remembrance.

The following quote is from a news article, which you can read in full at https://www.apollo-magazine.com/challenge-designing-holocaust-memorial-britain/

Begin quote

On 18 November, the Government [of Great Britain] announced the 10 shortlisted teams in the running to design a £50 million national Holocaust memorial for Britain, to be erected in Victoria Tower Gardens just outside the Palace of Westminster. The memorial project is a legacy of the coalition government led by David Cameron, whose cross-party Holocaust Commission recommended its construction after a survey revealed that of 8,000 British secondary school children, less than a third knew what ‘anti-Semitism’ was, and ‘the majority of those surveyed did not know some of the most fundamental facts that explain why and how the Holocaust happened’.

Announcing the subsequent design contest, Cameron’s successor Theresa May said: ‘We need to ensure that we never forget the horrors of the Holocaust and the lessons that must be learnt from it.’

The shortlist is impressive. It includes well-established firms such as Ralph Appelbaum Associates (best known for designing the US Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington D.C.) and Studio Libeskind (founded by ‘starchitect’ Daniel Libeskind, whose existing projects include the Jewish Museum in Berlin and the redevelopment of the World Trade Centre), alongside artists Rachel Whiteread and Anish Kapoor, and prominent authors James E. Young, Jonathan Safran Foer, and Simon Schama, whose works, in one way or another, have dealt with the theme of memory.

All are well-versed in the international vernacular of commemorative architecture, not least Young, who served on the judging panels for both Berlin’s Denkmal for the Murdered Jews of Europe and the National September 11 Memorial in New York. We must assume that our collective memories are safe in the hands of these experts in the sombre, grey palate of 21st-century memorialisation.

End quote

I have written several blog posts about Daniel Liebeskind, and his “degenerate art” which you can read at https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/tag/daniel-libeskind/

I have a section, on my scrapbookpages.com website, about Daniel Liebeskind and his art: http://www.scrapbookpages.com/Berlin2002/JewishMuseum/JewishMuseum01.html

Jewish art in Berlin by Daniel Liebeskind

My photo of Jewish art in Berlin, designed by Daniel Liebeskind

Thank God that Daniel Liebeskind’s contract to put Jewish art in the city of Sacramento was canceled. Instead, his proposed Sacramento design was installed inside a park in Russia.

  1. Of course the world now needs more Holocaust museums. That’s the best way to explain to the British people of today that they have to live in an unpleasant Muslim-populated country and ultimately disappear from the surface of the earth for the only sake of looking like morally superior anti-racist Humanists. Without the Holo-cult and its temples, the Globalist “Diversity is our strength” blue pill feels like a huge suppository… 😉

  2. Quote from the article above;- ” We must assume that our collective memories are safe in the hands of these experts in the sombre, grey palate of 21st-century memorialisation. ”

    Yes, indeed – we really must assume that our collective memories are safe in the hands of these money-grubbing architects, who are always on the prowl for gullible victims and a quick buck. And a 50 million pound budget to erect some shapeless forms in sombre-grey reinforced concrete is certainly a marvellous way to achieve a lucrative profit margin for the successful bidding team who is able to produce the largest enough bribe to satisfy the panel of adjudicators of this wonderful, and absolutely necessary architectural project.

    The only good thing about FG’s photo showing an example of “Jewish art in Berlin, designed by Daniel Liebeskind” is the green foliage which is beginning to hide the grotesque, monstrous structure. And with any luck, nature will fully complete its task in just a few years time.

    I did note that of a survey of “8,000 British secondary school children, less than a third knew what ‘anti-Semitism’ was.”

    Well, lucky old them – because, I too, haven’t got a clue what it means. I do recall somewhere, though, that an obscure 19th century Jewish geezer, named Theodore Herzl, dreamt up this phrase because he thought it would do him and his Zionist chums some good over the long run.

  3. The Jews hit pay dirt when they got the US HoloHoax Museum going…..they sure know how to extract money out of the US taxpayers without them even knowing. Taxpayers shouldn’t be paying a dime for this. Truly despicable people.
    These museums are just gold mines for the Jews…they take the cash in by the barrel load with their HoloHoax Horror Disneyland displays. These are the only places where you can see a NAZI flag on display without the Jews complaining. They love displaying NAZI paraphernalia as long as they are the ones displaying it. If you or I did it we would be attacked as haters and Nazis.
    Some more info on the background of it ….

    • It is not just Britain that is destined and fortunate enough to be graced by a forthcoming Holocaust Memorial, because Guatemala is going to be lucky too!

      According to the IHRA, dated 6th December 2016 –

      Quote;- ” A colonial-era house in Guatemala City, Guatemala, will be the site of the Museo del Holocausto, the first Holocaust museum in Central America. It is set to open before the end of the year according to an official statement on its website.”

      Well isn’t that good news, which will certainly send a tingle of excitement through the good folk of Guatemala. If it opens in time, they might be able to spend Christmas this year worshipping the Jews and paying homage at this new holocaust shrine.

      And what does IHRA stand for ? Well, the top entry on Google is the “International Hot Rod Association”, but further down the page we find the “International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance”. But I can’t help feeling that young Guatemalans will find Hot Rod racing far more entertaining and rewarding than traipsing round a stuffy old museum full of photos and junk from an event that happened more than 70 years ago, and had nothing whatever to do with them, or their nation, at all.

      • The Guatemalans will be very disappointed when the walk into this HoloHoax museum thinking that there are some souped up 57 Chevys lined up in the rotunda.
        Maybe there will be some souped up 1940 Volkswagen sedans there instead with super exhaust mufflers.
        Something to please everyone.

        • Yes – maybe they’ll have some vintage gas vans on display, or even race them round the block with the visitors locked inside.
