Famous Holocaust survivor Eva Moses Kor

Holocaust survivors walking out of Auschwitz-Birkenau

As far as I know, Eva Moses Kor is not in the photo above, which shows Holocaust survivors walking out of a death camp. I am using this photo to show that the Holocaust survivors were in good health and appeared to have been well fed and taken care of.

This recent news article has a different take on the story of the Holocaust.

Quite from news article:

INDIANAPOLIS — A documentary film about the life of Holocaust survivor Eva Mozes Kor will have its world premiere at Clowes Memorial Hall at Butler University on Thursday, April 5, 2018.

The film explores Kor’s life as a Jewish girl on a farm in Romania, to the time she spent at Auschwitz, to the now 83-year-old’s journey to forgiveness and healing.

“I heard (Nazi Dr. Josef) Mengele say that I only had two weeks to live, and I decided I was going to prove him wrong. I didn’t understand what I did. Why did Hitler hate me?” asked Kor.

Tickets for  the “Eva” premiere on April 5 are $40 and go on sale on Friday, January 19, at 10 a.m. through the Clowes Memorial Hall box office and Ticketmaster.

The film is a partnership between WFYI, Ted Green and Mika Brown.

I have no sympathy for Holocaust survivors who use their time in a Nazi prison to make a fortune on sales of books and films. Old photos show that these prisoners were not treated badly. There was a war going on, and these Jews were put in prison to prevent them from aiding the enemy.  Watch the new trailer below.

How the Holocaust began….

Filed under: Uncategorized — furtherglory @ 10:14 am

As far as Americans are concerned, the Holocaust began with the movie Schindler’s List.

I took the photo below in Kazimierz where Schindler’s List was filmed.

My photo above shows the courtyard in Kazimierz which was used for  the movie location.

In 1993, when Stephen Spielberg made a movie out of a novel called “Schindler’s Ark,” written by Australian author Thomas Keneally, he needed an authentic Jewish quarter for the scenes depicting the Jewish ghetto of Podgorze in Krakow. He chose the Kazimierz district of Krakow because this area had not changed since the 1940s, while Podgorze had been partially rebuilt with modern buildings.

Schindler’s List tells the story of how Oskar Schindler, an ethnic German industrialist from the Sudetenland in what is now the Czech Republic, saved 1098 Jews from the misery of having to work at the Nazi forced labor camp at Plaszow, by employing them in his factory in the Zablocie district of Krakow.

Schindler’s factory became a sub-camp in the Nazi concentration camp system; the Jewish prisoners lived in barracks which Schindler built for them on the grounds of his factory. Instead of paying wages to the Jews, Schindler paid less than normal wages to the WVHA (SS Economic Office in Oranienburg) for their labor. Although Schindler didn’t mistreat his Jewish workers, he did profit from their slave labor. Initially, he was motivated by the desire for money, not by a desire to save the Jews.

The photo above shows the balconies in the courtyard from where the suitcases were thrown down in the scene in Spielberg’s movie in which the Podgorze Ghetto is liquidated. According to my tour guide, a courtyard such as this is typical of the way living space was traditionally arranged in the old Jewish quarters of Polish cities.

Since the fall of Communism in Poland in 1989, Kazimierz has been revived as a Jewish community, and it has also become a popular tourist attraction with special tours of the places where the movie was filmed. In October 1998, I took a guided tour of Kazimierz and shot some photographs of the places where Schindler’s List was filmed.

One of the most memorable passages in the novel Schindler’s List is the one where Mrs. Dresner hides under a stairwell when the Nazis come to round up the Jews in the Ghetto in June 1942 to take them to the Belzec extermination camp. According to the book, after this roundup in which many of the Jews escaped, the Jewish Combat Organization (ZOB), a group of resistance fighters, bombed the Cyganeria Restaurant and killed 7 German SS soldiers. Next the SS-only Bagatella Cinema was bombed in Krakow. In the next few months the ZOB sank German patrol boats on the Vistula, fire-bombed German military garages in Krakow and derailed a German army train, besides forging papers and passports for Jews to pass as Aryans. In the movie, the date of the scene where Mrs. Dresner hides has been changed to the day of the liquidation of the ghetto on March 13, 1943.

The photograph below shows the stairway used in the scene in which Mrs. Dresner hides from the Jewish police who were helping the Germans to round up the Jews for “transportation to the East,” a euphemism for taking them to the gas chambers.

Stairs where Mrs. Dresner hid in Schindler’s List

The guided tour that I took in 1998 was called Schindler’s Steps. From Krakow, the tour entered Kazimierz on Jozefa street and the first thing we saw was the courtyard, which links Jozefa street with Meiselsa street, and the stairwell where the hiding scene in Schindler’s List was filmed. Mrs. Dresner hid under the stairwell, pictured above, after a neighbor allowed her daughter, but not her, to hide behind a false wall in an apartment. Mrs. Dresner was the aunt of Genia, the little girl in red, in the movie.

In the movie, the Nazis went through the Podgorze ghetto, room by room, and tore down walls as they looked for Jews who were hiding. While they are searching for Jews, a German soldier stops to play the piano. The Nazis loved classical music and this is a reference to the Jewish saying that the Nazis literally put down their violins in order to kill the Jews.

Germany was the most civilized and advanced country in the world in the 1930s, which makes it all the harder to understand how the Nazis could have planned the deliberate genocide of the Jews.

According to the novel, entitled “Schindler’s Ark,” around 4,000 Jews were found hiding in Podgorze during the liquidation of the ghetto and they were executed on the spot.

However, during the post war trial of Amon Goeth, the Commandant of the Plazow camp, the charges against him mentioned that 2,000 Jews were killed during the liquidation of the Podgorze ghetto. Those who managed to escape from the ghetto joined the partisans of the Polish People’s Army, who were hiding in the forests of Niepolomice.

Unlike the novel, the movie “Schindler’s List” does not mention the heroic Jewish resistance fighters, who managed to escape from the Nazis, and lived to fight as partisans throughout the war.

The Schindler’s Steps guided tour, which I took in October 1998, started in Krakow with Schindler’s modern apartment building at #7 Straszewskiego Street, from where Schindler could look out his third floor windows and see the Planty, a narrow park all the way around Old Town Krakow which marks the area where the town walls once stood. This apartment, in a very ordinary, ugly gray building, was given to Schindler by the Nazis after it was taken, without compensation, from the Jewish Nussbaum family.

Straszewskiego Street ends at Wawel, the limestone hill where the ancient royal palaces still stand; during the German occupation of Poland, Hans Frank, the governor of occupied Poland, which was called “the General Government,” lived on Wawel hill in the Castle originally built by King Kazimierz the Great, founder of the separate city of Kazimierz. Schindler’s apartment in Krakow was north of the Kazimierz district and north of Wawel hill.

Street in Kazimierz before the German occupation

The next stop on the tour was Schindler’s Enameled Pots and Pans Factory, on the south side of the river Vistula, at #4 Lipowa Street.

Lipowa Street goes through Podgorze, and the factory is just east of the former ghetto and across the railroad tracks.

Enamelware was apparently widely used in Poland instead of pottery or china, judging by the large amounts of enameled dishes, that were brought to the concentration camps by the prisoners, which are now on display in the museums at Auschwitz and Majdanek.

Enamelware is the type of dishes that Americans associate with the Old West when cowboys ate the beans they cooked over the campfire on metal plates coated with mottled gray enamel.

The most popular color of enameled bowls, displayed in the museums in Poland, is a dull brick red. Enameled pots and pans, such as Schindler produced in his factory, were also popular in American kitchens up until the 1960s.

Oskar Schindler

Schindler obtained a contract with the Germans to supply mess kits and field kitchen pots to the German army. Schindler’s Krakow factory produced armaments as well as enamelware.

The Enamelware part of the factory remained open until 1945 with 300 Polish non-Jewish workers.
When the Plaszow camp closed, Schindler moved the munitions part of his factory to Brünnlitz in what is now the Czech Republic.

The factory produced 45 mm anti-tank shells, but none of his shells were ever used because Schindler deliberately set his machines so that the calibration was incorrect, according to the movie “Schindler’s List.”

Other sources claim that Schindler spent all the money that he made on his enamelware business to purchase shells on the black market which he then sold to the Nazis.

By that time, his purpose was not to make money, but to save his Jewish workers, and thereby save himself from being indicted as a war criminal.

Thomas Keneally, the author of the novel “Schindler’s Ark,” who is a native of Australia, mentioned in the book that in 1944, an Australian plane was shot down by the Germans over Schindler’s factory; the plane was not trying to bomb his munitions factory, but was dropping supplies to the Jewish and Polish partisans in the forest east of Krakow, according to the author.

Schindler’s factory building was still being used for an electronics factory when I visited Krakow in 1998 and I only saw it from the street.

The factory is an ordinary gray stucco three-story building with lots of windows, built right next to the sidewalk. The architectural style of the building is what Americans would call Art Deco; in Poland in the 1940s, this style was called Modern.

There is an iron gate at the entrance to the factory courtyard where Schindler built barracks for his workers. The factory was named Deutsche Emailwaren Fabrick (German Enamelware Factory) and was called DEF for short.

Jewish workers at Schindler’s factory

Oscar Schindler’s factory was later taken over by the Jewish Council in Krakow and the building now has a sign outside, just like the original sign, which says “Deutsche Emalia Fabrika – Oscar Schindler.”

The factory was later included on the Schindler’s Steps tour; visitors could see the stairs that were used in the filming of the movie.

Schindler’s original office is at the top of the stairs and visitors could sit at his desk. The rest of the factory was off limits, but visitors could look around the grounds. The factory interior was not used in the film, except for the stairs.

The photos below were contributed by Richard Stephenson, who took the Schindler’s Steps tour in December 2005.

On my visit to Poland in 1998, I stayed at the Hotel Cracovia in Krakow which was owned by Orbis Travel Agency, the tour company that I used.

Built in 1965, it is now a first class, but inexpensive, hotel where tour groups from all over Europe stay before visiting such places as Auschwitz, which is due west of Krakow. Tours of Kazimierz and the site of the Plaszow labor camp can be arranged from the hotel, as well as private tours of the Auschwitz concentration camp.

If you can, let me know what it says in the video.  I always wanted to know the truth about WWII.

The first complaint agains Matt Lauer was 20 yers ago

Filed under: Uncategorized — furtherglory @ 9:30 am

You can read about Matt Lauer being fired for “sexual misconduct in the work place” at

The first complaint against him was 20 years ago. Why didn’t someone do something about these complaints before now?

I think that I can answer this question. Years ago,  I worked in a company which placed people in jobs. When an applicant would come into my office, and hand me a resume, the first thing that I would do is turn the application over and read the references on the back. If the applicant had not listed his or her most recent employer as a reference, I would say to myself: “Something Wrong!”

I would ask the applicant [almost always a young girl] why she had not listed her most recent employer as a reference. The answer was always that her employer had molested her and that is why she quit. She had been told to tell future employers that she had not quit, but had been fired for not doing a good job.

Matt Lauer was known as “the Face of NBC news”.

Matt Lauer is 59 years old, and was making 25 million dollars per year. There had been rumors for years, but no one did anything about the rumors. You don’t fire a man who is “the Face of NBC news” especially not for molesting women. Who in the Hell cares about women!  Hopefully, that is changing now.

Stumbling stones stolen in Berlin

Filed under: Uncategorized — furtherglory @ 6:21 pm

What are “stumbling stones” you ask?

Stumbling stones are Holocaust memorial stones set into the sidewalks in German cities, as shown above.

The following quote is from a news article which you can read in full at

Begin quote

Multiple “stumbling stones” bearing names of people murdered or abducted by the Nazis were uprooted overnight in Berlin, German media report. Police are investigating, and some local politicians blame far-right extremists for the theft.

The Holocaust memorial stones were stolen from Berlin’s districts of Neukoelln and Britz, the Berliner Kurier newspaper reported on Tuesday. Local residents reported more missing stones later in the day, prompting police to launch an investigation into the thefts.

End quote

In other words, the Germans are getting sick of the Jews and it has gotten to the point that the Germans might carry out another Holocaust. Enough already!

The Jews have come back to Germany in droves because they think that they won’t be Holocausted again.

The Jews have their own country now — Israel. But they don’t want to live there; they want to live in Germany where they can lie, steal and cheat to their heart’s content and take advantage of the German people.

John Bolton said “after the last terror attack since 9-11”

Filed under: Uncategorized — furtherglory @ 9:46 am

When was it proved that the destruction of buildings in New York City on September 11th was a “terror attack”? What is John Bolton talking about?

Why would anyone, except the owner of buildings in New York, bring down the buildings, and then build new buildings in the same location?

It is time for everyone to admit that the 9-11 attack was done by the owner of the buildings because he wanted to build new, more spectacular buildings, in the same spot.

Halloween customs — then and now

Filed under: True Crime, Uncategorized — furtherglory @ 11:59 am

When I was a child, there were no treats on the night of Halloween — only tricks. Little children did not dress up in costumes and go door to door asking “Trick or treat?”

People stayed home so that they could protect their house from being the target of tricks.

When I was a child, the favorite trick that was done in the small town where I lived, was putting a large piece of farm machinery on top of a building where it would be very difficult to get it town.

This was done during the dead of night. The building was on Main Street very close to the Catholic church where Catholics would see it the next morning on their way to Mass.

In my town, instead of saying “better call Saul” the townspeople would say “better call Bill”.

Bill was my father. Bill could neither read nor write, but he was very smart — he knew how to get a piece of farm equipment down from a roof without breaking the machinery or the roof. He would bring ropes and direct the men in the town in the art of bringing a tractor safely down.

One year, my mother took me out in the cold, just after day break, so that I could watch as my father climbed up on the top of the building where there was a large piece of farm equipment, and then directed the safe removal of the machinery by several men in the town.
