Holocaust survivor testifies

Begin quote from news article:

A Holocaust survivor and U.S. military veteran testified against anti-immigrant bills pending in the Michigan House of Representatives, describing a childhood lived in constant fear and comparing Trump’s mass deportation force to the arrests of Jewish people by the Nazis.

Civil rights advocate, Rene Lichtman, 79, noted his testimony fell on the anniversary of the tragic 1939 voyage of the SS St. Louis. Due to anti-Jewish hostility, the ship—carrying nearly 1,000 Jewish refugees—was turned away from Canada, Cuba, and the U.S. While a handful were able to disembark in Cuba, the rest were forced to return to Europe and an untold number died in the Holocaust.

At times holding up old black and white photos of family members, Lichtman warned legislators—and the rest of us—that he now sees “a lot of parallels” in the Trump era.

In spite of the fact that his son-in-law Jared Kushner is Jewish, Trump does not seem to have much sympathy for the Jews.

Lies about Anne Frank in today’s news

You can read the latest version of the Anne Frank story in this recent news article: https://www.livescience.com/59449-anne-frank-diary-75th-anniversary.html

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

Teenage Anne Frank, who was only 16 when she was killed in the Nazi death camp Bergen-Belsen, wrote in this diary throughout the two years she spent in hiding with her family and four other Dutch Jews, between 1942 and 1944. Their refuge was a secret attic apartment, concealed behind her family’s business office in Amsterdam.

End quote

Bergen-Belsen was NOT a “Nazi death camp” — it was an EXCHANGE CAMP where prisoners in Germany were exchanged for prisoners in America.

I wrote about the Bergen-Belsen exchange camp on this blog post: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2016/01/04/anne-frank-died-in-bergen-belsen-extermination-camp-who-knew/

I have a detailed description of the house where Anne went into hiding, on this page of my website: http://www.scrapbookpages.com/AnneFrank/AnneFrank03.html

Everybody loves Anne Frank. Her story is used to incriminate the German people. Every school child in America knows that poor little Anne Frank was cooped up in an attic because the bad Germans were after her father who never did anything wrong, but was wrongly discriminated against just because he was Jewish. Otto Frank was actually a fugitive from justice because he was a wanted criminal.
