What the world needs now — more Holocaust museums!

In this news story, you can read about a new Holocaust museum that will soon be going up in Great Britain:

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

On 18 November, the Government 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.’

  1. Quote from the above Apollo magazine;- ” 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’ ”

    I’m truly surprised that anything like one third of these students knew what ‘ant-Semitism’ was. Most modern youngsters haven’t a clue what it means – and don’t want to know either. The phrase itself is opaque and practically meaningless. Some adults today would have a vague notion that the phrase has some kind of historical resonance, but like the Temperance societies, and the Suffragist movements of the early 20th century – it’s all just baggage from the past.

    Students today are interested in their technical gizmos, such as computers, cell phones and Play Stations. They are busy socialising with friends; engaged in sport or night-clubbing; or learning subjects that will stand them in good stead when they come to look for employment. So what possible interest have they got in anything which is deemed to be anti, or even pro, Semitic. Their attitude could be summed-up in one short sentence;- “if the Jews are behaving themselves and are engaged in honest and worthwhile activities with the community at large – then all well and good”.

    And as for the claim that ‘the majority of those surveyed did not know some of the most fundamental facts that explain why and how the Holocaust happened’. Well, that is good news, because the students can now be re-assured that no holocaust ever took place, and thus there is no need to explain to them any fundamental facts, because they will either be totally or partially untrue.

  2. Yes, I am aware of this. What a disgrace !, this is nothing other than a monument to Jewish dominion over the British people.
