The title of my blog post today is a quote from a news article which you can read in full here: http://www.jewishpress.com/news/us-news/holocaust-survivor-86-returning-to-auschwitz-with-idf-officers/2017/03/28/

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

Forty supporters of Friends of the Israel Defense Forces (FIDF) from across the US will embark on an unprecedented mission to Poland and Israel on April 24 to May 3, with IDF soldiers and officers, as well as Holocaust survivors – one of whom is returning to Auschwitz for the first time since her liberation.

Bronia Brandman, 86, who was born in Jaworzno, Poland, watched two of her sisters being sent to the gas chambers at Auschwitz-Birkenau. Except for her older brother and cousin, who also reside in the United States, her entire family perished in the Holocaust.

End quote

Can you believe this! Those cruel Germans sent two girls to the gas chamber and made a third girl watch as her sisters marched to the gas chamber!!!

As I have written several times, I lived in Germany for 20 months, after World War II was over. I met many German men and women who were all very nice to me. I was amazed that the German people never got upset about anything.  Maybe it was different during the war, and maybe Jews were treated differently by the Germans.

Begin quote from news article:

“I came to Auschwitz in 1943 as a child of 12,” Brandman said. “My parents and four siblings were consigned to the gas chambers. The daily bestiality and dehumanization was beyond words, and the world’s silence was deafening. I never wished to return to that place of our degradation and annihilation, but to return in the company of our noblest, bravest of the brave – our IDF soldiers, makes my spirit soar with pride and hope.”

End quote

Bronia Brandman did not give any explanation for why her parents and four siblings were sent to the gas chambers, but she was spared. It seems that the Nazis made sure that there were child survivors, who would live a long time, and tell the world about the gas chambers where 6 million Jews were killed.

“Into the valley of death rode the 6 million.”

  1. Bronia Brandman did not give any explanation for why her parents and four siblings were sent to the gas chambers, but she was spared.

    I appreciate your astute comment/observation here — but as you have surely seen, probably to your great frustration, the ‘Holocaust’ is all about belief, ie not evidence and/or logic — and for those who for whatever reason cannot believe — eg because they have a brain — there is intimidation, ruination of their career (eg David Irving), and even criminal sanctions.

  2. Each of these patent liars should be prosecuted for anti-German & anti-Gentile hate speech. Might deter others from doing the same and stirring Germanophobia & anti-Gentilism until the end of times…

    • You wrote: “Each of these patent liars should be prosecuted for anti-German and anti-Gentile hate speech,”

      There are no laws against anti-German nor against anti-Gentile hate speech. There are only laws against anti-Jewish speech.

      • I thought there were just laws against hate speech in general, FG !? In fact, such prosecutions should be started anyway. Because they would force authorities to concede that the term “hate speech” only means anti-Jewish or anti-Zionist criticisms and anti-any-non-white verbal attacks, in other words that it is not about a struggle against verbal hate as alleged.

  3. I WONDER if, somewhere, somehow, Bronia’s sisters had survived, they might have claimed shares in some inheritance their parents had left behind? Maybe in a Swiss bank somewhere…
