Teenagers having fun at the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin

The following quote is from the news article, cited above:

Begin quote

A newly unveiled online project called “Yolocaust” delivers a stinging message for those who not only act disrespectfully at a Berlin Holocaust memorial but capture their behavior and share it with their friends on social media. The project, which debuted on Wednesday, was visited by so many Germans that the computer server hosting it crashed, according to reports in the German media, where it was covered with great interest.

The project, created by Berlin-based Israeli satirist and author Shahak Shapira, aims to “explore our commemorative culture by combining selfies from The Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe in Berlin with footage from Nazi extermination camps.”

The site features real colorful selfies of young people have taken at the Holocaust memorial that Shapira found on Facebook, Instagram, Tinder and Grinder, and includes captions like “Jumping on dead Jews @Holocaust Memorial”. When the viewer moves their computer’s mouse over the photos – without even a click – they suddenly transform to black and white, and graphic black and white photographs of the extermination camps appear in the background.

End quote

My personal opinion is that this eyesore, in the heart of Berlin, should be torn down. Allegedly, Hitler’s bunker is underground at this site. It should be opened and shown to tourists.

  1. Final Solution

    By [student’s name]

    Final Solution
    The term “Final Solution” was used to refer to their plan to exterminate the Jewish population; however, there are no definite facts about the date, when Nazi leaders definitively decided to put the “Final Solution” into practice.
    What were the legislative steps in the evolution of the Final Solution and what was their purpose?
    The legal steps, taken by the German government to legalize and prepare for the Final Solution of the “Jewish Problem” were carefully organized. Final Solution was preceded by a number of laws, which were instituted according to governmental procedures. The following legal steps preceded the evolution of the Final Solution:
    1. February 28, 1933; adoption of the Emergency Decree for the “Protection of People and State”. This law provided the police with the power and ability to arrest anyone, who was considered anti-Nazi or presenting a political threat to Germany (Browning, 2004).
    2. March 23, 1933; The Enabling Act, “Law for the Relieving of the Distress of People and Reich”. The Parliament voted for giving the rights to Hitler and his cabinet to make laws (Browning, 2004). As a result, Hitler was given the legal right to organize government by the decree and he could get rid of essential civil rights from Germans, which he found precarious to the Reich.
    3. April 1933; adoption of “Law Regarding the Admission to the Bar”, according to which people of “non-Aryan descent” (i.e. Jews) were forbidden to practice law (Browning, 2004).
    4. April 1933 adoption of “Law against the Overcrowding of German Schools and Institutions of Higher Learning”. The law decreased the number of “non-Aryan” (Jewish) students in schools (Browning, 2004).
    5. July 14, 1933; Proclamation and establishment of the Nazi Party as the only official and legitimate political power in Germany (Browning, 2004). The purpose of these legislative steps was to derivate the Jewish population of all the rights and freedoms and their gradual removal from all the spheres of life of the country in order to purify the nation. Taking into account the hatred of Hitler to the Jews, he aimed at getting rid Germany of them.
    What were the non-legislative steps involved in the Final Solution and what was their purpose?
    The second stage of the implementation of the Final Solution into practice consisted of non-legislative steps and actions, which involved forced exclusion of the Jews from Germany through deportation to Poland. Non-legislative steps included placing the Jews into concentration camps. Taking into account that as a result of arrests of political opponents, the prisons were overcrowded, therefore, concentration camps were built. To relieve this problem, concentration camps were opened. Except political opponents to the Nazi, the Jews were the major prisoners. The non-legislative acts, involved in the Final Solution, were burning of synagogues, destruction of homes and shops, killings and imprisonment of the Jews in the concentration camps. Jews were to be progressively more isolated from the German society so there were no feelings of responsibility toward them on the part of the German population. In its total, the Final Solution included the actions of gassings, shootings, and systematic acts of terror, disease, and starvation, that have resulted in the deaths of about six million Jews. The purpose of these actions was elimination of the Jews from society. The aim of the actions, included in the final Solution can be explained in the following phrase, belonging to Lucy Dawidowicz :” Hitler believed that before monotheism and the Jewish ethical vision came along, the world operated according to the laws of nature and evolution: survival of the fittest. The strong survived and the weak perished. When the lion hunts the herd the young, the sick and weak are always the first victims. Nature is brutal, but nature is balanced” (Dawidowicz, 1975).

  2. This Yolocaust project itself is very telling. Jewish ‘artists,’ satirists & humorists always advocate and use their [alleged] right to burn idols and make fun of sacred things, their [alleged] right to blasphemy…as long as such idols and sacred things are Gentile idols and sacred things, especially the Gentile idols and sacred things barring the path to Jewish hegemony. But as soon as a few young airheads (fed on a kosher “nothing’s sacred” diet since their birth) don’t show enough respect for the Holohoax sacred cow, one can see the Talmudic gang of tyrants disguised as libertarians get mad in the minute and viciously attack the naive offspring of their past and present corrosive actions. One can clearly see that the boundaries of sacredness are in fact located where the Jewish-Zionist most vital interests lie and that the so-called right to blasphemy, criticism and ridiculing jokes is nothing but a scam intended to make the vicious attacks on Gentile civilizations by Jewish corroders and their useful idiots possible under a disguise of free speech and humor. But the humorless Jewish overreactions such as this specific one and numerous other ones expose the scam of Jewish ‘free speech’ and ‘humor’ in full light to whoever knows how to look and understand these things. Food for thought. Think about it next time you hear some Jews advocate their [alleged] right to promote degeneracy and decadence among Gentiles without being disturbed by so-called stupid bigots, murderous haters, brutal White supremacists, evil anti-Semites and so forth.

  4. Hard to believe they can get away with all these Memorials dedicated to their HoloHoax Cult.
    Imagine having a HoloHoax Museum in the USA dedicated to Euopean Jews who never stepped foot in America (until some did Later) The reason why this can happen is because it’s all about the Jews and how they are the most important people in the world. Their small amount of deaths, under 500k, equal all the other war deaths many times over.
    And not only do they get away with their Cult Museum, they get us to pay for it. What a deal!

  5. The ONLY country in which Holocaust memorials should be permitted is Israel.

    Comment by Jett Rucker — January 21, 2017 @ 11:10 am

    • You wrote: “The ONLY country in which Holocaust memorials should be permitted is Israel.”

      Why? The Jews had a chance to go to Israel, but they wanted to stay in Germany, or move to the USA. FDR would not let them into America.
