Anne Frank in today’s news

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust — furtherglory @ 2:51 pm

The following quote is from the very end of a news story about Anne Frank: http://www.jpost.com/Diaspora/Soccer-teams-protest-reading-of-Anne-Frank-diary-passages-at-games-508649

Begin quote

The diary passage [in Anne Frank’s diary] that is being recited at football games reads: “I see the world being slowly transformed into a wilderness, I hear the approaching thunder that, one day, will destroy us too, I feel the suffering of millions. And yet, when I look up at the sky, I somehow feel that everything will change for the better, that this cruelty too shall end, that peace and tranquility will return once more.”

End quote from Anne Frank’s diary

The importance of this diary entry is that it shows that Anne was a good writer, and that she was an innocent child who tried to make the best of the situation.

What is never mentioned in these news articles about Anne Frank is that her father was a convicted criminal who was engaged, at that time, in lying, cheating, and stealing.

Otto Frank had tried to escape to America, along with his brother, but Otto was not allowed in because of his criminal record. His brother was also a criminal but he manged to lie about his criminal record and he got in.

The point that I am making here is that Jews have a reputation for lying, cheating and stealing and that is why they have been hated the world over, since the beginning of time.

Note to readers of my blog in Germany

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust, World War II — furtherglory @ 11:36 am

Dear readers of my blog in Germany: Everything that I write on my blog is against the law in Germany.

It is O.K. for American soldiers who are stationed in Germany to read my blog, because German laws do not apply to them.

However, German citizens in Germany are in danger of going to prison if they are caught reading what I write.

Read this article which explains the laws in Germany: https://smartergerman.com/german-politics/holocaust-denial-crime-germany/

The following quote is from the article

In today’s Germany the outright denial and even the trivialization of the Holocaust in public is a federal crime, punishable by up to 5 years in prison. Why is that? And since when do these legal provisions exist?

End quote

The Jews are back in Germany, and the Jews rule. So don’t go denying the Holocaust in Germany.

The following quote is also from the article:

History of laws againgst Holocaust denial

Therefore, it comes as no surprise that in 1960 the first law against Holocaust denial was passed as a reaction to the re-emerging anti-Semitism in German society: On Christmas Eve 1959, just a couple of months after its widely celebrated re-opening, the synagogue in Cologne was besmeared with swastikas and anti-Semitic slurs by two members of a right-extremist party.

In the following months an entire wave of anti-Semitic acts swept over Germany. The administration of chancellor Konrad Adenauer (CDU: Christian Democratic Union) saw itself under considerable pressure to act and therefore decided to pass a law against ‘incitement’ (Volksverhetzung). The purpose of this law was to, among other things, make the denial of Nazi crimes against Jews a crime.

The mind-set of the deniers was seen as the foundational myth of new forms of anti-Semitism that focused on the state of Israel and its alleged moral blackmailing of the German state based on the – in the eyes of these anti-Semites – ‘historical lie’ of the Holocaust.

Once passed however, the law was never really used to sentence Holocaust deniers as the judicial qualifications necessary for a conviction were set very high. Furthermore, the German judicial system was still full of officials who started their careers in the Third Reich and in most cases were not willing to really confront their, and their country’s past.

That does not necessarily mean that they still held on to their old beliefs – even though that could be found too – but they were very reluctant to address the topic of Vergangenheitsbewältigung (the process of coming to terms with one’s past) and therefor bring charges against Holocaust deniers.
