You can see photos of the Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC on my website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/USHMM/Intro.html

In my blog post today, I am commenting on this news article: https://dailygazette.com/article/2018/03/25/route-7-couple-opposes-proposed-holocaust-museum

The following quote is from the article:

Begin quote

A Niskayuna couple believes a Holocaust memorial proposed for Route 7 should not be located in a residential part of town.

Bob and Sheila DiSarro, who live on Old Troy Road off Route 7, have offered other reasons why they oppose the memorial — which would be built across the road from their home of more than 30 years.

Their list of reasons includes quality of life change for residents, the potential for traffic and vandalism problems and fears property values will decrease.

Initial plans for the Capital District Jewish Holocaust Memorial first were discussed during a November session of the Niskayuna Planning Board. The project has been proposed by Latham-based orthodontist Dr. Michael Lozman — who has defended the merits of the memorial.

The memorial is scheduled for discussion at Monday’s session of the Planning Board. Discussions for variances, site-plan approval and building permits are still ahead.

If the project wins town approval, the memorial will be built on about two acres of land situated just east of Most Holy Redeemer Cemetery on Route 7. The land is part of the cemetery — owned by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany — and would be donated for construction of the memorial.

The answer to the question in the title of my blog post is No, there can never be too many Holocaust Museums. The Jews can never have enough revenge.

The article continues with this quote:

Memorial components would include a replica of the double-gated entrance to the Auschwitz concentration camp; a railroad box car that would symbolize the methods Jews were transported to the camps; a wall 80 feet long and 20 feet tall that would symbolize camp gas chambers that were used to kill millions; and fencing that would replicate post-and-cable fencing common in the European camps during the World War II years.

The plans also say the memorial will be self-guided. If approved, it will be open from dawn to dusk.

Bob DiSarro said the memorial will be designed to simulate the feelings one must have felt inside one of the camps.

The following quote is from the website cited above:

Hitler and germans felt shame for germanys loss in WW1.they had to blame someone,jews were easy to blame.hitler believed white european people to be the founders of culture and specifically blonde hair blue eyed northern europeans to be the peak of human kind,jews did not fit these ideas culturally or racially.Jews were seen as non-german and alien to german culture.The nazis wanted to purge everything non-germanic out of germany,not just racially,but in art and science and also education.The nazis were not christians and hitler wasnt religious either.He however recognised christianity was the religion of white people and accepted it,but made no plea for germans to be religious.

Jews at this time had no country of thier own,but yet were and still are very successful in buisness and living standards.This enraged hitler ,and he called the jews ‘parasites’ for entering european countries and making good lives for themselves and holding good jobs in society.

Note that this is the Jewish explanation for why the Germans hated the Jews.
