I didn’t learn about the Holocaust when I was a child — because I could not afford comic books

You can read here about the Holocaust and comic books: https://nypost.com/2018/04/30/how-comic-books-taught-america-about-the-holocaust/

I didn’t know anything about the Holocaust when I was a child in the 1930ies and 1940ies because my family was very poor and I could not afford comic books. When I did earn a little money by doing chores for the neighbors, I spent my money on movie magazines, not comic books.

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

Before high schools taught about the Holocaust, before there were dedicated museums and before “Schindler’s List,” kids learned about the horrors of Hitler from comic-book superheroes.

At a time when most adults considered such fare brain-rotting junk and the topic of genocide too taboo to discuss openly, the largely Jewish comic book industry was quietly educating a new generation about the Nazis’ atrocities. Comic books featuring superheroes such as Captain America and with titles like “Blitzkrieg” and “War Is Hell” — their covers splashed with exclamation points and sound effects — often tackled the deadly serious subject matter inside.

    Did you read any movie magazine about the movie The Song of Bernadette? Vincent Price uses the word “holocaust” in that movie! I noticed that about a decade ago when it was on TV. I forget the exact context in which it was used.

    • I see that the whole movie is on youtube!

      If someone watches this, please tell me the exact place the VP uses “holocaust”

      • I think the term “holocaust” is used more than once; but I heard it at 1:36:46

    • You wrote: “Did you read any movie magazine about the movie The Song of Bernadette?”
      I remember that movie, but I don’t rememeber the word “Holocaust” being said in the movie. The word Holocaust was unknown when I was a child [I am now 85 years old].

        • What I find interesting about all the HoloHuxsters site is this……they are not wrong in anything they say!
          Sure 6 million people were killed in fake homicidal gas chambers with bug spray, what of it?
          Sure most of the German testimonies were taken from as a result of torture and threats, what of it?
          Sure Gerstein said 40 million people were killed in diesel gas chambers that can’t kill ya what of it.
          Sure says Gerstein, there ware piles of clothing 120 ft high in Treblinka what of it?
          Oh by the way his testimony wasn’t excepted at Nuremberg?? Gee I wonder why?
          His death was pretty suspicious later…..like all the ones who made ridiculous statements or even told the truth, like Richard Baer the last commandant
          who was going to testify in the Frankfurt Auschwitz trials during the 60’s to say he didn’t see anything happening in the camp that showed people being killed. Yet he also died mysteriously before he testified.
          Are we seeing a patten here.

          Bottom line…..we are still looking for the forensics to show there were mass murders going on, where are the mass graves with bodies in them?
          We are still looking for a picture of a real homicidal gas chamber and not ones that are being presented that were used as fumigation chambers.. We are still looking for pictures of thousands of children’s bodies that were supposed to of been killed under the age of 15 who entered the camp. Interesting this is the age of most of the Jews alive today who are giving their false testimony. Why they weren’t killed if the policy was to kill them upon arrival. Sure seems like most of the young ones survived to tell their stories. I guess they went to through the right door. They say thousands were killed but no pictures of the bodies of these younger ones.
          Remember, we revisionist don’t have to prove anything the HoloHuxsters have to prove what they say happened.

          The Holohoax is the biggest scam that ever came down the pike and the HoloHuxsters have done very well in keeping the lies going.
          In fact they have made it illegal in upward of 35 countries that it’s against the law to say anything that goes contrary to the official Jewish version. I mean really, making it against the law to present the other side of the controversy?? What other topic in the world has this happen with?
          The truth stands on it’s owns merits and you don’t have to use the legal system to protect truth, you need the legal system to back up lies.
          So this fact alone should get people thinking about why has the HoloHoax topic survived so long without scrutiny.
          What we have is a made up horror story that was written after the fact, and when stories are written after the fact you can say whatever you want to make all the pieces fit.
          It’s like having the answers to all the questions, before you take the test.

            • Complete nonsense!

              Comment by Jim Rizoli — May 4, 2018 @ 2:27 pm

            • How about reading the truth now…..

              From the Ernst Zundel case study

              In the early 1980s, Samisdat Publishers Ltd., under the signature of its president,
              Ernst Zündel, published a 32-page booklet entitled Did Six Million Really Die?. The
              booklet was published under a licence from Historical Review Press in England which
              prohibited Samisdat from making any changes whatsoever to the publication.
              Samisdat sent the booklet to hundreds of teachers, ministers, politicians and media
              personalities across Canada in the hope that interest could be aroused in discussing
              the subject explored in the booklet: did six million Jews really die pursuant to a
              systematic policy of extermination by Nazi Germany during World War II?

              Samisdat received no complaints regarding the booklet’s factual accuracy.
              Nevertheless, in 1983, Samisdat’s president, Ernst Zündel, was charged under a
              private information laid by Sabina Citron, a founder of the Canadian Holocaust
              Remembrance Association, with the criminal offence of “spreading false news” likely
              to cause racial and social intolerance. The charge was later assumed by the Crown and
              led to two lengthy jury trials in 1985 and 1988, both of which ended in convictions.
              There is no doubt that Did Six Million Really Die? contained errors. It was written
              hastily by a young University of London graduate, Richard Verrall (who used the
              pseudonym “Richard Harwood”) in the early 1970s.

              The errors, however, were the
              type of minor error which one can find in the first edition of any non-fiction book. For
              example, Verrall wrote that the first allegation of mass murder of Jews was made
              against the Germans in 1943 by the Polish Jew Raphael Lemkin. In fact, the first
              charge of mass murder was made by the Allies in a Joint Declaration issued on
              December 17, 1942. The error played no significant part in the argumentation of the
              author. The significance and importance of Did Six Million Really Die? lay in its
              logic, its reasoning and its opinions. It critiqued the weaknesses of the evidence and
              arguments provided in orthodox “Holocaust” literature and it gave to the reader littleknown
              alternate views of what happened in the camps, such as those of Dr. Russell
              Barton (who was present in Bergen-Belsen immediately after its liberation) and Thies
              Christophersen (who was stationed near Auschwitz during the war). It summarized
              the findings of the French revisionist historian Paul Rassinier, whose works at that
              time were not known at all in the English-speaking world. In short, Did Six Million
              Really Die? did what polemical works were meant to do: it provided the reader with
              an alternate viewpoint on a historical event.

              Two juries convicted Zündel notwithstanding devastating cross-examination of
              Holocaust “survivors” and Holocaust historians by defence attorney Douglas H.
              Christie and notwithstanding expert evidence which crushed the basis of the
              Holocaust story, namely, the allegation that millions of Jews were done to death with
              industrial efficiency in gigantic gas chambers and disposed of in crematories and
              burning pits. It did not matter to the jury in the second Zündel trial in 1988 that the
              warden of a United States penitentiary, Bill M. Armontrout, testified to the enormous
              difficulties of gassing even one person today in gas chambers. It did not matter to the
              5
              jury that a forensic investigation of Auschwitz, Birkenau and Majdanek by the only
              expert in gas chamber technology in the United States, Fred A. Leuchter, Jr., resulted
              in Leuchter’s opinion that no gassings could have taken place in the alleged Nazi gas
              chambers. It mattered not that the Canadian crematory expert, Ivan Lagacé, testified
              that the thousands of persons alleged by Holocaust historians to have been cremated
              in Birkenau and Auschwitz daily were “ludicrous” and “beyond the realm of reality.”
              It did not matter to the jury that the internationally-known British historian David
              Irving testified that he no longer believed in the “Holocaust” as it had been defined by
              its historians. It did not matter that Holocaust historian Raul Hilberg refused to return
              to testify in 1988 after testifying in 1985 for fear of cross- examination. It did not
              matter that the Crown could not produce one expert witness in gas chambers or
              crematories to refute the defence expert evidence.

              If the evidence presented at the 1988 trial of Zündel was not enough to convince the
              jury to acquit him, it was enough to start an explosive chain reaction of books and
              studies into the veracity of the gas chamber claim. The evidence of Fred A. Leuchter,
              Jr. and his report on the gas chambers at Auschwitz and Majdanek by far caused the
              most reverberations. The Jewish Holocaust lobby at first ignored the Leuchter Report,
              but as its influence mounted internationally, they scrambled to attempt to refute it.
              The Beate Klarsfeld Foundation published the books Auschwitz: Technique and
              Operation of the Gas Chambers and Truth Prevails: Demolishing Holocaust Denial:
              the end of “The Leuchter Report.” The success of these books in “demolishing” the
              Leuchter Report can perhaps be measured by the fact that almost no one has heard of
              them; the mass media, usually so willing to use anything to smear Holocaust
              revisionism, has virtually ignored them.

              Apparently unable to find competent experts to support the gas chamber claim among
              engineers and crematory experts, the Jewish Holocaust lobby turned the use of their
              considerable resources instead to ensuring the destruction of Fred Leuchter’s career
              and the passage of laws in France and Austria making “denial of the Holocaust” a
              criminal offence. A full account of the tactics used against Leuchter can be found in
              his article “Witch Hunt in Boston” (Journal of Historical Review, vol. 10, pp. 453-
              460). While the Jewish lobby has succeeded in the political arena in having repressive
              laws enacted against revisionism, they have not succeeded in refuting revisionism on
              its merits, most importantly its technical and forensic evidence. The report of Fred A.
              Leuchter, Jr., has engendered three further studies of the gas chambers.

    • You wrote about “The Gassing lie”.

      Back then, few people knew what a gas chamber was. I lived 25 miles from Jefferson City, Mo. where there was a real gas chamber. When I was a child in grammar school, my 2nd grade class went on a trip to Jefferson City, and one of the things that we saw was the gas chamber there. It was a small metal box where two people could sit in a chair while they were gassed. I thought that this was totally stupid because they could have just shot them, instead of using dangerous gas. When I first read about the Holocaust, I thought that the Jews were gassed two at a time, and I didn’t believe that the Jews were gassed. Why use such a dangerous procedure when it would have easy to just shoot the Jews?

      • I’ve been very busy the last 2 days entertaining the media from across the world wanting to deal with this topic of my brother’s bus incident. So that’s what this is all about my brother had a incident on the Mass Pike and it went viral all over the world and I’ve been dealing with all the calls and interviews and all that type of stuff for the last 2 days I’m pretty exhausted actually from at all.
        Pretty much almost every major media Source has been in touch with us doing interviews in getting the video which has been spread around or call across the world.
        I only wish that the topic of the Holocaust would have got as much attention.
        If you do a search on, man jumps on hood of school bus you will find all the videos which I actually put up first and the other media sources are using.

  4. From the news article:

    At a time when most adults considered such fare brain-rotting junk and the topic of genocide too taboo to discuss openly, the largely Jewish comic book industry was quietly educating a new generation about the Nazis’ atrocities.

    “After the war, there were comic-book stories in regular publications that talked about the Holocaust when other people weren’t talking about it,” said Neal Adams, the enormously influential New York comics artist who created the book with Holocaust scholar Rafael Medoff . “The comics industry is filled with Jews. Almost all of the artists and writers were Lower East Side kids who as teenagers got into comics,” he said. “I had expected we would find the stories in war comics. But I was surprised to find Holocaust themes in mainstream superhero comics like ‘Captain America,’ ‘Batman,’ ‘X-Men,’ ” Medoff says.

  5. The comic book scene is all part of the Jews agenda to take down America.
    Seems like they are doing pretty well at that.

    • Do deniers have comic books, Jim? Seems apropo.

      Comment by brycesdaddy1105 — May 2, 2018 @ 12:13 pm

      • I don’t think that there are any denier comic books.There are not enough deniers to buy comic books like that.
