What is Quora — and do they have a license to steal?

Filed under: Holocaust, Uncategorized — Tags: , — furtherglory @ 2:46 pm

While I was searching for something else, I came across something called Quora, which has a web page with a number of photos, but no credit given to the person who took these photos.

All of the photos shown in the link above were taken by me, but no credit was given to anyone.

Whatever or whoever Quora is, this organization should print the following under their logo: “We have a license to steal, so don’t worry if your photos are stolen and used by us.”

They could add “We know that you, whoever you are, spent a lot of money to travel to foreign countries, to take these photos, but we don’t give a damn.”

Here is a link to the page on my website, where I put up this photo:

A photo that was stolen from my website

Do you know what it took for me to get this photo from a place that had a sign saying “No photos allowed”?  I could have been arrested and thrown into prison in a foreign country, where I would have had a hard time getting out because I broke the law to take this photo.

On the far right side of the photo, you can see a small sign, about a foot square, which says that you will be arrested if you take a picture here.

Here is what I wrote on my website about this photo:

The photo above shows the room where a crematory oven once stood; a light shines on the spot where the oven was located. On the right, there is a hole in the floor covered with glass. Note the vaulted ceiling which shows how the ceiling of the gas chamber looked before a passageway for a ramp was cut through the walls. This is not the gas chamber, as some people have mistakenly identified it.


Ich Bin ein Hamburger

The title of my blog post today is the way that a German person might say that they live in the city of Hamburg in Germany.

In the video below, a German woman is shown, as she pronounces the name of the city known as Hamburg.

I have set the video to start at 35 seconds in, when you can hear the German woman start speaking.  She is speaking about the devastation that took place in the city of Hamburg.  Even if you can’t understand what she is saying, you can still view the photos.

In the photo below, you can see an American food that is known as a Hamburger.  American news reporters sometimes pronounce the name of the German City and the name of the American food the same way, but if you listen carefully to the woman in the video, the German pronunciation  of Hamburg sounds very different.

This is an American hamberger

Deutschland Über Alles

SS marschiert in Freindesland

This version above has both English and German subtitles! It also features modern CGI graphics clips from Girls und Panzer.

The version below has German subtitles plus subtitles in some other language. I believe it is Spanish.  Some may prefer the more classic WW2 black and white footage that accompanies the music.  Both videos have the exact same sound track.


You can read more about this song on Wikipedia, including a translation of the words into English.
