Listen up people!
Get the facts straight about the Holocaust and Hitler’s use of Zyklon-B gas to kill handicapped children and Jews.
You can read about the gas chamber used at Auschwitz on this page of my website: http://www.scrapbookpages.com/AuschwitzScrapbook/Tour/Auschwitz1/Auschwitz08.html
The first thing that I saw on TV this morning was a very subdued Sean Spicer apologizing for his mistakes when he talked about gassing people. It was mentioned that handicapped children were gassed, implying that these children had only a minor handicap.

The following quote is from the news article:
Under the rule of Adolf Hitler, German authorities, beginning in 1939, gassed millions of people to death. The first victims were German citizens deemed handicapped and thus “unfit for life.”
On my website, you can read about the gas chamber at Hartheim Castle, and see photos of the gas chamber where handicapped people were killed: http://www.scrapbookpages.com/Hartheim/gaschamber01a.html
The news article continues with this quote:
After Germans with local assistance had shot about a million Jews in Eastern Europe, gassing was added as a second technique of mass murder. Jews were killed by carbon monoxide at Chelmno, Belzec, Sobibor and Treblinka, and by hydrogen cyanide at Auschwitz.
Spicer’s comments on Tuesday must be understood in the context of how the White House chose to reflect upon Holocaust Memorial Day in January: by deliberately ignoring the Jewish victims of the Holocaust. This is the key to the whole affair: the White House cannot acknowledge the basic politics of the Holocaust.
This incredible statement by Spicer – which erases the use of deadly chemical agents by Nazi Germany – fits very well into the general historical politics of the Trump administration. The name of Hitler is invoked to criticize the enemy of the moment (today Assad, not long ago American intelligence officers).
The general consequence is to minimize the scale of Hitler’s crimes: we are instructed that intelligence agencies are acting like Nazi Germany, or we learn what Hitler supposedly did not do. And this is an administration that is not very clear on what Adolf Hitler in fact did.
