One thing I like about this video is that it has the German lyrics printed out at the bottom of the screen so that we can all sing along.

The gas chamber at Stutthof

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust — Tags: , — furtherglory @ 11:54 am

The alleged gas chamber at Stutthof is mentioned in this recent news article:

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

In Judith Meisel’s last image of her mother, Mina, she is standing outside a gas chamber at the Stutthof concentration camp in Poland, awaiting the same fate that befell 65,000 other prisoners there.

This summer, as she has countless times before, the St. Louis Park resident relived the experience in wrenching detail, but this time for a set of German prosecutors who, aided by Minnesota FBI agents, were racing to bring to justice the few Nazis still alive who can be linked to World War II-era atrocities.

The following quote is from my scrapbookpages.com website, written before I became a Holocaust denier:

Begin quote from my kosher website:

Some of the Jews who were selected for slave labor were sent to the Mauthausen concentration camp in Austria and its subcamps where they worked in German aircraft factories.

Others were sent to the Stutthof camp near Danzig, according to Martin Gilbert, who wrote the following in his book entitled “Holocaust”:

Begin quote from Martin Gilbert’s book:

On June 17 Veesenmayer telegraphed to Berlin that 340,142 Hungarian Jews had now been deported. A few were relatively fortunate to be selected for the barracks, or even moved out altogether to factories and camps in Germany.

On June 19 some 500 Jews, and on June 22 a thousand, were sent to work in factories in the Munich area. […]

Ten days later, the first Jews, 2500 women, were deported from Birkenau to Stutthof concentration camp. From Stutthof, they were sent to several hundred factories in the Baltic region. But most Jews sent to Birkenau continued to be gassed.

End quote

Will the Jews ever get enough revenge on the Germans. I don’t think they ever will. Soon German corpses will be dug up and brought into a courtroom to be put on trial.

Revenge, revenge, revenge!!!

How would you like to have a monstrosity like this built just outside your house? This is what people in Germany have to put up with now!

The following quote is from this news article which you can read in full at http://www.cnn.com/2017/11/23/europe/holocaust-memorial-german-politician/index.html

Begin quote

(CNN)Political activists built a replica of Berlin’s Holocaust Memorial outside the home of a far-right German politician to protest his call for Germany to stop feeling guilty about Nazi atrocities.

The Center for Political Beauty erected 24 large concrete slabs next to the house of Alternative for Germany (AfD) politician Björn Höcke, to serve as a reminder of the six million Jews who were murdered during the Holocaust.
The plan was first conceived in the aftermath of Höcke’s controversial Dresden speech in which he said that Germans were the “only people in the world who planted a memorial of shame in the heart of their capital,” referring to the 2,711 gray blocks that were first unveiled in Berlin in 2005.
Höcke also said Germany needed to make a “180-degree turn” when remembering its past and labeled the country’s citizens as “brutally defeated people.” He later described criticism of his remarks “a malicious and deliberately denigratory interpretation” of them.

The gate of death in the small fortress at Theresienstadt

Filed under: Holocaust — furtherglory @ 11:26 am

My photo of the gate into the Small Fortress

My photo of the gate of death

The Gate of Death, shown in the photo directly above, leads to the execution site outside the walls of the Small Fortress at Theresienstadt.

After visiting the firing range in the Small Fortress at Theresienstadt, tour groups go through the Gate of Death which is the gate through which condemned prisoners had to walk to reach an execution site outside the fortress.

If you don’t want to go through the tunnel to get to the execution site, you can reach the Gate of Death by walking straight ahead when you enter the Small Fortress, instead of turning left into the Administration Court.

You will then enter the Fourth Courtyard which is where my tour group emerged when we came through the Gate of Death.

My photograph above shows the Gate of Death, taken from inside the Fourth Courtyard. In the background, you can see the high wall of the firing range.

After we entered the fortress again through the Gate of Death, my tour group made a right angle turn to the left and walked a few yards to the swimming pool. The pool was built in 1942 for the benefit of the guards and their families.

According to a pamphlet that we were given “It was constructed by students of Roudnice and Jewish prisoners who were tortured and beaten while working.”

The pool is quite small and no more than six feet deep. The pool is located in the northeast corner of the fortress and behind it is a bastion which sticks out on the outside of the fort.

Austria accepted it’s Holocaust guilt

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust — furtherglory @ 1:20 pm

You can read about how Austria has accepted it’s Holocaust guilt in this news article:

https://azjewishpost.com/2017/austria-accepted-its-holocaust-guilt-so-why-is-its-far-right-on-the-rise/

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

VIENNA (JTA) — When it comes to the Holocaust, Austria has made a lot of progress assuming responsibility.

In recent years, Austrian officials have consistently acknowledged their country’s support of Adolf Hitler, an Austria native, and his war of annihilation against Jews. In the early 2000s, the government dropped the claim that the country was mostly a victim of German Nazism, citing “the special responsibility imposed on Austria by its recent history.” Instead, teaching about the Holocaust has become mandatory, with visits to former death camps and teacher training in Israel.

The government has paid nearly $1 billion since 2005 in compensation to Holocaust victims, and since 2012, Holocaust memorial projects have popped up at an unprecedented rate.

End quote

Will the Germans and the Austrians never learn? They can never be forgiven for putting Jews into camps, no matter what they do.

The Jews believe that they are God’s Chosen People and that they can lie, cheat and steal as much as they want to.

On my scrapbookpages.com website, you can read about the Mauthausen camp where Austrian Jews were sent.

Sacramento park — I never promised you a rose garden

Famous rose garden in a very old Sacramento park

The photo below shows what the rose garden in Sacramento used to look like, before it was ruined by drug users.

In this recent news article you can read about how a famous park in Sacramento, California has been ruined by drug users: http://www.sacbee.com/news/local/news-columns-blogs/citybea/article185288903.html

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

Hypodermic needles are being flushed so often down the toilets in McKinley Park, damaged sewer systems have forced the city to shut down the bathrooms twice in recent months.

City officials think they may have found a fix.

The City Council will consider Tuesday spending $50,000 for a mechanical grinder that would chew up needles and other objects flushed down the toilets in the East Sacramento park. The bathroom is next to the city’s most heavily used playground, and city officials want to avoid permanently shutting down the facility.

I have many happy memories of taking my children to this park to walk among the roses. Those days are gone for today’s children.

Charles Manson — dead at 83

Filed under: True Crime — furtherglory @ 9:25 am

You can read about the death of Charles Manson at

http://ewn.co.za/2017/11/20/watch-charles-manson-dead-at-83

Charles Manson had a swastika carved on his forehead. He wanted to be known as a killer, but he never killed anyone himself. He ordered his young women followers to go out and kill.

The most famous crime that Manson ordered was the death of Sharon Tate who was 8 and 1/2 months pregnant when she died. The Black Panthers were accused of this crime.

For some strange reason, beautiful young girls became Manson’s followers. Group sex was mandatory.

How many young people today know who Charles Manson was — not many, I am guessing.

Warsaw Ghetto museum will soon be built

Filed under: Holocaust — furtherglory @ 1:43 pm

You can read here about the new museum that will be built soon: http://www.hurriyetdailynews.com/poland-to-build-warsaw-ghetto-museum-122649

The following quote is from the article:

Begin quote

Poland will build a museum focused on life and death in the infamous World War II-era Warsaw Ghetto, where Nazi Germany imprisoned nearly 500,000 Jews during the Holocaust, a minister said on Nov. 17.

“The museum will be located in a building that had been used as a children’s hospital inside the ghetto and will be established in collaboration with the Jewish Historical Institute,” Culture Minister Piotr Glinski told reporters, without specifying a timeline.

“It was the largest ghetto in the Nazi-occupied Europe and the most tragic, there is so much to tell,” Pawel Spiewak, who heads the Jewish Historical Institute, told AFP.

The former hospital, located in the heart of the Polish capital, stands right next to the only remaining fragment of the ghetto wall.

Janusz Korczak, a renowned pre-war Polish-Jewish children’s author and pediatrician, worked at the hospital before the war.

The innovative educator who cared for orphans in the Warsaw Ghetto, died along with his young charges in the gas chambers of the Treblinka death camp.

He and the nearly 200 orphans in his care were among the 260,000 Jews who perished in the ghetto’s liquidation, launched in July 1942.

A year after invading Poland on September, 1 1939, Nazi Germany set up the Warsaw Ghetto in the heart of the occupied Polish capital in October 1940.

End quote

I have a section on my scrapbookpages.com website about the Warsaw Ghetto: http://www.scrapbookpages.com/Poland/WarsawGhetto/index.html

Start by reading this page on my website:

http://www.scrapbookpages.com/Poland/WarsawGhetto/Introduction.html

The following quote is from my website:

Before World War II started on September 1, 1939, there were 375,000 Jews living in Warsaw, as many as in all of France, and more than in the whole country of Czechoslovakia. Only the city of New York had a larger Jewish population than Warsaw.

The first Jews had settled in Warsaw after King Kasimierz the Great welcomed Jewish refugees from Western Europe to Poland in the 14th century, but during the 15th century they were expelled from the city of Warsaw, just as they were in Krakow. Between 1527 and 1768, Jews were banned from living in Warsaw.

After Poland was partitioned for the third time in 1795 between Russia, Prussia and Austria, the Jews began coming back to Warsaw, which was in the Russian section, and by the start of World War I, Jews made up forty percent of the population of the city. During the 19th century and up until the end of World War I, Warsaw was in the Pale of Settlement where all Russian Jews were forced to live; when Poland regained its independence after World War I, Warsaw was once again a Polish city. From the beginning, the Jewish district was located southeast of Old Town Warsaw.

The Nazis liked to take action against the Jews on Jewish holidays, so it was on Yom Kippur, the Jewish Day of Atonement, that the announcement was made on October 12, 1940 that “Jewish residential quarters” were to be set up in Warsaw. The Ghetto would comprise 2.4 percent of the city’s land, but would contain 30% of the city’s population, according to the U.S. Holocaust Museum. To create the Ghetto, the Nazis moved 113,000 Christian residents out and moved 138,000 Jewish residents in. The rest of the Warsaw Jews were already living in the neighborhood of the Ghetto.

The story of Bergen-Belsen

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust — furtherglory @ 10:10 am

Years ago, I wanted to visit Bergen-Belsen, so I called a cab and said to the driver: “take me to Bergen-Belsen”. He said “which one — Bergen or Belsen”. I was stumped. I didn’t know that Bergen and Belsen were two different places.

All of this came back to me today, when I read this news article: http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/newslocal/central-sydney/holocaust-survivor-olga-horek-shares-story-of-liberation-as-jewish-museum-celebrates-25-years/news-story/61a9cf16d86a4cec72ba71bdb3530694

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

When Olga Horak was liberated from the Holocaust camp Bergen-Belsen in 1945 she had lost her whole family. She was 16 years old, had typhus, weighed 29kg and was carrying a blanket.

The blanket was made by her fellow death camp prisoners, who had been forced to weave their own hair with wool to make a warm covering for their Nazi wardens.

When the camp was liberated by British and Canadian forces, the Nazis fled, leaving behind a decimated population of Jews from all over Europe and importantly for Horak, the blanket.

End quote

Olga Horak is shown in the photo below

For Mrs. Horak, who survived five death camps, the blanket and the museum serve as a powerful reminder: we must never forget.

[My comment: How does one survive 5 death camps? Are Jews that hard to kill?]

“I feel compelled to talk about it, to teach the younger generation in order never to forget what happened,” Mrs Horak said.

“This is history, it cannot be erased and … as long as we can talk, we do ask the people who are willing to listen to us to listen,” she said.

Founded by the late John Saunders AO and members of the Australian Association of Jewish Holocaust Survivors and Descendants in 1992, the museum has grown over the past 25 years to become an integral part of the cultural life of Sydney and a second home to many Holocaust survivors.
