The Majdanek concentration camp is in the news

I have visited the Majdanek camp, and I wrote about it on my website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/Poland/Majdanek/index.html

This news article tells about the Majdanek concentration camp in Poland: https://www.wired.com/2017/04/vr-holocaust-history-preservation

The photo below is at the top of the news article.

The Majdanek monument in the far distance looks like a hat on the head of the man in the photo

You can read more about the Majdanek camp on my web site at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/Poland/Majdanek/Majdanek01.html

My photo of the monument

This huge monument is very near a major highway which goes past the former Majdanek concentration camp.

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

Pinchas Gutter has returned to Majdanek at least a dozen times, but this trip is his final one to the onetime Nazi concentration camp. His first was one he was 11, when he was taken to Majdanek; now he’s 85 years old, and this is the last time he’ll come here to tell people what the Nazis did to his family. As he rides up to the shuttered camp in the backseat of a chauffeured sedan, he talks about why he’s told his story so many times. Without that living, breathing reminder, the Holocaust becomes easy to forget—or even deny. Without personal accounts, Gutter says, it’s hard for people to accept its atrocities as “the gospel truth.”

Gutter is right about that. That’s why his trip to Majdanek, and the horrific experiences he recounts in the camp’s barracks and crematorium, are being preserved with virtual reality—thanks to the USC Shoah Foundation.

    Don’t worry, Pinchas. It’s also hard to do that WITH personal accounts. 😉

  2. tell people what the Nazis did to his family

    I thought he looked rather lonely standing there — so I assumed he’s alone because — wait for it — the Nazis killed the rest of his family in the gas chambers.

    His first was one he was 11 (sic)

    Huh? — yes, OK — so the story is the Nazis killed those unfit for work — yet here they apparently gave an 11 y/o boy a break.

    now he’s 85

    Born in 1932 then — at the end of the war he was 13, ie still a boy — he must have been given nothing but breaks — lucky guy.

    Without personal accounts

    There is no ‘Holocaust’ story — period — because that is virtually all the “evidence” there is.

      They know it. This news article states:

      “a survivor’s testimony—captured in the camp where he was imprisoned—is about the most powerful tool imaginable for preserving history.”

  3. That’s a monument? Looks like a pile of dog shit. Did I miss something looking at it?

    • Sauer-Kraut Tim
      Yes, what you missed, is to wash out your mouth – than again down there in Texas, a Scheisskopf like you would not know the difference between your elbow and your Arschloch, if if you suck on them!

      • Yee haa ! What’s on your mind hillbilly ? That’s right. Texas “is” good ol boy territory. Like Don and June wrote one time. “The cactus flats,are tough on hats. Deep in the heart of Texas. Perhaps that’s why,we all wear chaps. Deep in the heart ,of Texas.”
        Hell yeah ! We’re damn proud of this state. La Grange ( Fayette county). That’s where I live. It was settled by Krauts. Come to think of it,lot of this area was.
        Don’t forget General Sam Houston and his rag ass army,took down Jaun de Lopez Santa Anna and his vastly superior forces. Yeah,this is a great state. All the wetbacks we have here,were probably the idea of the Jews.
        It’s kind of a good feeling. I’m getting insulted like our favorite “wild man Dago”,Jimbo. The difference between you and Jimbo, he brings something to the table.
        Same with FG. She brings something to the table. They present facts to back their ass up. When j first saw this site,I thought,”oh more Jew haters”. I don’t think people hate Jews,as much as they hate the lies.
        Since I’ve been following this site,I’ve seen the people at the Jew museum,say the number of dead Jews went from 6 million,down to 850,000. Are they that damn stupid ! How the hell can your numbers be off,that f–kin much?
        Then we’ve got Ellie the weasel. The idiot that lied about having a tat from the prison he was at,when he “admitted “,he didn’t have one. The Jew museum told everyone to weep for this asshole,when he passed on. Sorry. I don’t think the kids in school need to be taught about a liar.
        I don’t have a problem with the individual Jew . My Sargent I had when I went to Southeast Asia,was a damn good man. He taught me how to stay alive. My problem is the entire,”Jew collective”. They’re the ones that come up with all the lies.
        Okay Maricon,you tell me why these spineless countries allow,”holo denial laws”? That’s taking away a persons GOD GIVEN RIGHT,to freedom of thought. Usually when shit like that comes about,people are trying to hide shit. Yeah. People question shit to much,truth might come out. What? Bring about holo denial laws,so the Hebs don’t get their feelings hurt. Welcome to the world slick. NOBODY IS LOVED. Trell the Jews to get off the damned,”boo hoo” kick.
        Here’s another one I find,dumber that I pile of sire shit ( sire is the bull that’s bred to a particular herd.) . Germany pays money to Jew survivors. WTF? Okay. To avoid an argument on this stupid ass subject,let’s say everything did happen the way the Jews cry that it did. Why does Germany have to foot the bill? It would’ve been,”the nazi party that did it”. I don’t give two shits if this was to have taken place in Tallahassee or Timbuktu. It’s NOT,the country of Germany,that would’ve been the offending party. It would’ve been the Nazi government that would’ve been the offending party.
        This is why I’ve turned against the holo,since I’ve been following this site. The proverbial “2 plus 2″,is not adding up to 4.
        I tell people,”did something bad happen? Probably so.” Guess what Tonto? It was a war. Bad shit happens in a war. I saw that shit when I pulled my tour in the Nam. That was not part of jungle training in Fort Polk. Bottom line,bad shit happens. The Jews exploit the shit out of it.
        What happened to all the innocent civilians murdered at Dresden?
        Take your insults on down the road. I had an assistant DI back when I was in boot. Biggest,blackest,meanest son of a bitch in the world. You’ll have to get up pretty early ,to top his insults . Let’s not forget the time he knocked me flat on my ass either. Later days puta.

      • By the way stomping man,I’m not a Kraut. So you calling me sauerkraut,don’t fly.

      • Hallo Herr Stolpmann,

        das Denkmal ist eigentlich sehr hässlich — sehr sehr hässlich.

        Comment by eah — April 21, 2017 @ 6:48 am

        • eah
          Es geht hier nicht um das Denkmal,sondern nur die erniederungen Ausdrücke von dem Texas boy! [ It is not about the memorial, rather the constant demeaning expression of the Texas boyh

          • Hey Stump.
            “Well you can call them country and they don’t care and if you don’t like the way they wear their hair,you can take your like and shove it up on the line,people in Texas don’t care if the sun don’t shine.”
            Okay Stump,I got one for you.
            “di xuong dia nguc dien ngu me “. That’s one I bought back from Nam. I know how to say,I just had to look up how to spell it.
            You’ve still bought “nothing”,to the table. I told you FG and Jimbo always back they’re asses up with facts. Not just a bunch of BS lies like the Hebs fling around.
            You know what Stump? If you’re lucky the lying ass Jews might feed you,teach you to do a few tricks,tie a pretty pink bow in your hair and you can be their lapdog.
            Why don’t you come visit us in Texas . I’ll take you hog hunting. Get a 150 lbs. hog charge your sorry ass. You’ll have something to cry about then.

            • You wrote: “Hey Stump.”

              Herbert Stolpmann probably doesn’t know what you mean. The letters St in a German word do not sound the same as the letters St in the word Stump in English.

              I learned to speak German when I lived in Germany for 20 months. The Germans would always smile and show approval when an American pronounced a German word correctly. However, they would not say anything when you mispronounced a German word.

          • “the constant demeaning expression of the Texas boy”

            Blasphemy !!! Tim doesn’t worship the Holo-golden-calf like you do. So he doesn’t use the reverent religious vocabulary requested by the rabid worshipers and inquisitors of the Holo-cult. I’m afraid Holo-bigots will just have to learn to live with such a behavior until there is a law against that where ‘Texas boy’ lives.

    • It looks like something you’d scrape off the inside of a sewer pipe.

      As a matter of fact, that’s actually where it came from, in a metaphorical sense.

      • Actually looking at it again,it looked like someone did a bit of boozing,before they trimmed the hedges.

        Comment by Tim — April 21, 2017 @ 12:30 am

  4. Well, folks ….. now you’ve heard it straight from the Gutter!

  5. Another Horror Disneyland for all the Jews to cry over.
