What does one do when in Warsaw on a visit? Honor the Jews, of course.

I took this photo of the Warsaw Monument to the Jews on my trip to Poland in 1998.

You can read about Ivanka Trump’s visit to Warsaw on this news article:

https://www.algemeiner.com/2017/07/06/in-warsaw-with-father-ivanka-trump-honors-polish-jews-killed-during-holocaust/

Begin quote from news article:

While in Warsaw on Thursday, Ivanka Trump visited the Monument to the Ghetto Heroes and the POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews.

In a social media post, President Donald Trump’s Jewish daughter called the experience “deeply moving.”

“It was a privilege to be able to pay my respects and remember with gratitude those who fought with such tenacity against all odds,” she wrote.

Ivanka Trump — joined by her husband Jared Kushner — is accompanying her father during his current trip to Poland and Germany.

In a speech delivered in Warsaw’s Krasinski Square on Thursday, President Trump warned against the threats of “terrorism and extremism.”

“As the Polish experience reminds us, the defense of the West ultimately rests not only on means but also on the will of its people to prevail,” Trump said. “The fundamental question of our time is whether the West has the will to survive.”

End quote from news article

The date that the Nazis chose to destroy the Warsaw Ghetto was on Passover, April 19, 1943, a Jewish holiday. But the leader of the Jewish resistance movement, Mordechai Anielewicz, was determined not to give up without a fight.

By this time, the Jews in the Ghetto knew that the daily trains to Treblinka were not transporting the Jews to resettlement camps in the East, but were taking them to a death camp to be killed in gas chambers. It was because the ghetto residents began refusing to get on the trains that the Nazis decided to liquidate the ghetto.

Ukrainian and Latvian SS soldiers marched into the ghetto on April 19, 1943, entering at the northern border of the Ghetto on Zamenhofa street.

It was not until May 16 that the SS was able to defeat the handful of resistors, who lasted longer than the whole Polish army when the Germans and the Russians jointly invaded Poland in September 1939.

On April 19, 1988, the 45th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising, a Memory Lane was marked out through the former Ghetto. The route starts at the corner of ul. Anielewicza and ul. Zamenhofa where a plaque tells you that this was the site of the former Ghetto.

The buildings were severely damaged during the fighting, and the Ghetto was torn down. Jewish prisoners were sent to Warsaw from the Auschwitz death camp to clear the ruins of the Ghetto.

More about the Clay Higgins video

The video that was put up by Clay Higgins should have been entitled “Jews good, Germans bad”. Sub title: “That’s all you know on earth, and all you need to know.”

The article should have mentioned that, over the years, Jews have been expelled from every country on earth, not just from Germany.

The first mass murder of Jews in Germany took place in the German city of Rothenburg on June 25, 1298. The Jews did not let that stop them from going back to Germany, where they would continue to lie, steal and cheat, causing them to be thrown out of Germany many more times.

I have a section about the Jews in Rothenburg on my website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/Rothenburg/Tour/JewishQuarter.html

The video done by Clay Higgins does not say that the Jews have been given billions of dollars in reparations by the Germans, and that they will continue to collect money from Germany until there are no more Germans left. Then the Jews will go after people of German heritage in other countries, demanding more money.

At the very end of the video about Auschwitz, done by Clay Higgins, there is a photo which shows a small hill of grass, right next to the back door into the gas chamber in the main camp. I have a photo of this hill on my website, as shown below.

The photo above shows a brick chimney that is a reconstruction that was done in 1947. Note that the chimney is completely detached from the building and it is not connected to the reconstructed crematory ovens.

The original chimney was round, according to Filip Müller, a prisoner who worked in the crematorium, but it had to be replaced and the new chimney was square shaped. Other witnesses say that the original chimney was square.

What does this have to do with anything you say? When someone puts up a video, they should identify everything in the video and say what it has to do with subject, about which they are bloviating.

Ich hatt’ einen Kameraden (Leni Riefenstahl version)

The film Triumph of the Will has a very good rendition of “Once I had a comrade”.  I have set this clip to start 34 minutes and 34 seconds into the movie.  If you click on the video, you can start at that point and hear the song.  The song is used dramatically as the back ground melody for this segment.  This segment begins with a few seconds of a German youth speaking.

I previously posted another version of this song on the link you that you can follow above.

I copied this video news article below.  This is my third blog post about Clay Higgins.

Congressman goes inside Auschwitz “gas chamber” and completely misunderstands everything

Congressman Clay Higgins poses beside two cremation ovens at Auschwitz

My photo of the ovens where Congressman posed

What’s wrong with posing for photos inside the oven room at Auschwitz, you ask?

What the Congressman did was completely disrespectful to the Jews who were gassed and burned during the Holocaust. My photo above shows the back side of the ovens where Jews were burned.

When I visited Auschwitz three times [in 1998, 2005 and 2007] there were signs everywhere, telling tourists that photos were not allowed. I ignored these signs. I am a senile old woman who does not know how to use a camera — my camera kept going off by itself.  That’s my story — and I’m sticking to it.

My photo of the device used to shove the bodies into the oven

Oven on the left — gas chamber on the right

As everyone knows, a gas chamber should not be in a room that is only a few feet from an oven, but the Nazis somehow managed to kill Jews in gas chambers without blowing up the whole building.

I blogged about Clay Higgins in this earlier blog post.
