In his speech on International Holocaust Remembrance Day, Trump’s remarks constitute a form of banalization of the Holocaust

The following quote is from a news article which you can read in full at http://www.jpost.com/Opinion/De-Judaization-of-the-Holocaust-the-two-faces-of-Trump-481842

Begin quote from Trump’s speech:

“It is with a heavy heart and somber mind that we remember and honor the victims, survivors, heroes of the Holocaust.
It is impossible to fully fathom the depravity and horror inflicted on innocent people by Nazi terror.”

It is with these words that Donald Trump chose to commemorate International Holocaust Remembrance Day on January 27. This statement is alarming as it ignores the Jewish specificity of the Nazi genocide, as the Yad Vashem Memorial in Jerusalem also pointed out in its official statement, recalling that the Holocaust, a crime perpetrated by Nazi Germany and its collaborators, saw in a relatively short period of time, 6 million Jews murdered, and that it constitutes, in this sense, an unprecedented genocide. This correction of the historical record was necessary because Donald Trump’s comments – far from being benign – are disturbing in several respects.

Following these criticisms, on January 29, Reince Priebus, White House chief of staff, justified the president’s remarks, saying in an interview on BBC, “[E]veryone’s suffering in the Holocaust including, obviously, all of the Jewish people affected….”

However, even if the phrase was taken out of context, even if elsewhere in the statement the chief of staff did refer to the genocide of Jews, the fact remains that this “inclusive form of rhetoric” to describe the Holocaust is unacceptable.

End quote from news article

Note that the news article mentions that 6 million Jews were murdered in the Holocaust. The official death toll is now 1.1 million, but Trump should have mention the sacred 6 million.

Where was Trump’s Jewish son-in-law when Trump was preparing this speech? Jared Kushner should have advised Trump on the numbers.  “Into the valley of death rode the 6 million” or words to that effect.

If Trump doesn’t want to get himself killed, he had better bow down to the Jews — and quickly.

The Holocaust started at the Chelmno death camp

The Chelmno death camp has historical significance because it is the first place where Jews were allegedly gassed in the genocide known as the Holocaust, which allegedly took the lives of six million Jews. The current official number of Jewish deaths in the Holocaust is 1.1 million.

According to Holocaust historian Martin Gilbert, the “Final Solution” began when 700 Jews from the Polish village of Kolo arrived at Chelmno on the evening of December 7, 1941 and on the following day, all of them were killed with carbon monoxide in gas vans. The victims were taken on 8 or 9 separate journeys in the gas vans to a clearing in the Rzuchowski woods near the town of Chelmno.

In his book entitled “Holocaust,” Martin Gilbert wrote the following:

Begin quote

On 7 December 1941, as the first seven hundred Jews were being deported to the death camp at Chelmno, Japanese aircraft attacked the United States Fleet at Pearl Harbor. Unknown at that time either to the Allies or the Jews of Europe, Roosevelt’s day that would “live in infamy” was also the first day of the “final solution.”

End quote

The text on the Memorial stone, in the photo above, says that “about 350,000 Jews – Men, women and children – were murdered at Chelmno.”

Martin Gilbert wrote in his book, entitled “Holocaust,” that 360,000 Jews were killed at Chelmno, just in the first phase of the killing, between December 7, 1941 and March 1943.

The US Holocaust Memorial Museum says that “at least 152,000” Jews were killed at Chelmno.

The Museum at the villa in Wannsee, near Berlin, says that “152,000 Jews and 5,000 Gypsies” were killed at Chelmno.

In other words, none of the Holocaust experts seem to know how many Jews were killed at Chelmno. My guess is that no Jews were killed there. I believe that Chelmno was a transit camp, where Jews were held until they could be sent on to a concentration camp.

Holocaust website can’t explain why the Holocaust happened

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust, Uncategorized — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 11:57 am

Jewish men

With nothing better to do, I logged onto this website:

http://shadowsofshoah.com/education/Materials+and+Resources/WHAT+IS+THE+SHOAHHOLOCAUST.html
The Holocaust raises many perplexing questions.

The following quote is from the website, cited above:

Begin quote

Why did so many ordinary Europeans cooperate with Hitler’s programme of Jewish persecution (actively or passively), and why did relatively few resist?

Was the systematic murder of Jews on an industrial scale an anomaly of history, or merely the worst manifestation of a hatred that for thousands of years has simmered and frequently boiled over?

How was it possible that a “Christian” society as highly educated and cultured as that of 1930’s Germany could spawn such evil?

Shadows of Shoah [website], alone, cannot provide satisfactory answers. It can and does, however, convey some of what happened and, importantly, it provides a human face for what has become, for many, merely a faceless statistic.

End quote

What did the Jews ever do that caused so many non-Jews to hate them? The Jews have never done anything wrong in the entire history of the world, so why do so many people hate them?

The kosher version of the Holocaust — suitable for all

My 1998 photo of the main Auschwitz concentration camp

The photo above shows the scene that tourists see just after entering through the “Arbeit macht Frei” gate.

When I first put up this information about Auschwitz on my website, I was a True Believer: http://www.scrapbookpages.com/AuschwitzScrapbook/Tour/Auschwitz1/Auschwitz12A.html

The information on my scrapbookpages.com website is suitable for elementary school children who are studying the Holocaust.

The following quote is from my website:

My photo above shows the view looking into the Auschwitz main camp, just after you enter through the Arbeit Macht Frei gate. The first brick building on the right, in the photo, is Block 15, where visitors begin their tour of the Museum exhibits.

Block 17, to the right on the first camp street, but not shown, is the barrack building where Elie Wiesel and his father [allegedly] stayed for three weeks before being sent to Auschwitz III to work in a factory. Block 17, [in 2005] housed exhibits about the Yugoslavian prisoners held at Auschwitz.

My 2005 photo of the gas chamber in Auschwitz

The Krema I gas chamber in the main Auschwitz camp, shown in my photo above, is a reconstruction which was done by the Soviet Union in 1947. The original gas chamber had been converted by the Germans into an air raid shelter in September 1944.

A new entrance door, which can be seen in the background of my photo above, had been added. In September 1944, the original gas chamber had been divided into four small rooms. In my photo above, you can see the reconstructed opening into the oven room on the left hand side. This opening had been closed up when the gas chamber was converted into an air raid shelter. During the reconstruction, the opening into the oven room was moved a few feet.

The main thing that you must believe, dear children, is that the room shown in my photo, immediately above, is a gas chamber. It is currently the law in 20 countries that you must believe that the room shown above is a gas chamber. America will soon be the 21st country where one must believe in the Holocaust — or go to prison for 5 years or more.

 

 

Here is what you will need to know when America passes a Holocaust denial law

My photo of the entrance into Dachau camp

This morning, when I started my day by reading the most recent Holocaust news, I read an article which includes all the false information that you will need to know when America becomes the 21st country to pass a Holocaust denial law.

You can read the news article at http://www.edmondsun.com/news/central-th-graders-study-holocaust-survivors-son-shares-parents-story/article_4be3e71a-f30c-11e6-84b8-d3a4e27fa8d5.html

The news story begins with this quote:

For Central Middle School eighth graders, their yearly study of the “Diary of Anne Frank” was made even more real as Edmond resident Mike Korenblit visited them and shared the Holocaust through his parents’ eyes. He has written a book about his parents, Manya and Meyer Korenblit titled “Until We Meet Again: A True Story of Love and Survival in the Holocaust.”

End quote from news article

Years ago, before I became a Holocaust denier, I wrote about Manya and Meyer Korenblit on this page of my scrapbookpages.com website: https://www.scrapbookpages.com/DachauScrapbook/DachauLiberation/LiberationDay2A.html

Begin quote from my website:

Also among the prisoners on the march [out of Dachau], who were liberated by the Americans, was Majir Korenblit, who had changed his name to Major Kornblit when he moved to Ponca City, Oklahoma in 1951. In 1983, his son Michael Korenblit co-authored a book about the Holocaust experience of his father and his mother, Mania, who changed her name to Manya after the war. The book is entitled “Until We Meet Again: A True Story of Love and War, Separation and Reunion.”

After the Nazis had conquered Poland in September 1939, Majir Korenblit and his teen-aged sweetheart Mania hid from the Gestapo, along with a handful of other Jews, in a hand-dug crater underneath a three-story haystack. Eventually, hunger forced them out of their hiding place and they went to work for the Nazis in the Hrubieszow ghetto.

When the Gestapo came to the ghetto, Major and Manya separated and escaped, spending the next 2 1/2 years on the verge of death. Between them, Majir and Mania survived 13 concentration camps, including Auschwitz where both acquired a tattoo on their arms when they were registered.

Mania survived Auschwitz because she volunteered to work in Czechoslovakia where she was liberated by the Soviet Army. Majir was sent to Germany to work and wound up in Dachau in the last days of the war.

Mania and Majir lost their entire families in the Holocaust, except for Mania’s younger brother Chaim, who moved to Great Britain after the war. Mania and her brother were reunited in 1982.

End quote from my website

To get back to the news article, the following quote describes how students are taught today about the Holocaust.

Begin quote from news article:

Without trivializing the Holocaust, Mike explained to the students that the Holocaust started with a group of people being bullied. The bullies, the German soldiers, targeted certain victims, not only based on who they were, but on their appearance, sexual orientation and religion.

“There were also those who stood by and watched while others were victimized, and didn’t do anything to stop it. In many ways, the Holocaust shared the characteristics of school bullying,” Mike said.

End quote from news article

News articles like this are very upsetting to me. Rarely does a news article explain what really happened. Nobody cares about the true story of what really happened.  It’s all about teaching the Jewish version of history to young people today.

Were there two women at Auschwitz, named Edith Stein and Edith Steiner?

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust, Uncategorized, World War II — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 10:24 am

Sometimes it is possible to find the light of love even in the darkest of times. Like Edith Steiner who was just 20 when she barely escaped death while being held at the Auschwitz concentration camp by the Nazis. John Mackay, the then-23-year-old Scottish soldier who saved Edith, is still with her celebrating their 71st Valentine’s Day together. Edith and her mother were the only remaining members of their family who had not been sent to the gas chambers which meant certain death. But they were saved by a commando team – which Mackay was a part of – that freed a number of Jewish prisoners from the clutches of the Nazis in Poland.

I wrote about the liberation of Auschwitz on my website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/AuschwitzScrapbook/History/Articles/Liberation.html

The following quote is from my website:

The Auschwitz main camp, the Birkenau death camp and the Monowitz labor camp were liberated by soldiers of the Soviet Union in the First Army of the Ukrainian Front, under the command of Marshal Koniev, on January 27, 1945.

How could I have been so wrong! Now I know that it was actually Scottish soldiers who liberated Auschwitz — NOT!

 

Famous house that was shown in the movie Schindler’s List

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust, movies, Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 7:30 am

You can read a recent news article about Amon Goeth at http://jewishnews.timesofisrael.com/petition-to-conserve-schindlers-list-nazi-torture-house/

To refresh your memory, Amon Goeth was a German military officer, who shot prisoners, that were working in the Plasow camp, with a high-powered rifle, from the balcony on the back of his house.

The prisoners were working in an area that was on the other side of the house, but Goeth had a special rifle that could shoot over a house. [just kidding]

My 1998 photo of the front of the house

My photo directly above, taken in 1998, shows the front of the house where Amon Goeth lived during the time that he was the Commandant of the Plaszow camp near Krakow, Poland. His mistress, who had been introduced to him by Oskar Schindler, lived with him in this house.

The house has apparently been remodeled, and it only vaguely resembles the original house.

The photo below shows the back of the house, which has a balcony on the top floor.

The photo above shows a tour group standing behind the house where Amon Goeth formerly lived. At the top of the photo is the famous balcony from which Goeth allegedly shot prisoners at random with a high-powered rifle.

Goeth’s house was on top of a hill which overlooked a concentration camp where prisoners were forced to work.

The novel, Schindler’s Ark, upon which Spielberg’s movie is based, mentions that Goeth stepped out of the front door of a “temporary residence” and shot prisoners at random.

Later when Goeth moved into the three-story white house on Jerozolimska Street, he shot prisoners from his balcony, according to the novel Schindler’s List.

In the movie, Schindler’s List, Goeth is shown standing on the balcony in the rear of his house, shooting prisoners, who were not working fast enough, using a high-powered rifle. According to my tour guide, Goeth actually shot prisoners from a hill overlooking the Plaszow camp because Goeth’s house was located behind this hill.

The old photo below shows Goeth standing on the balcony from which he allegedly shot prisoners in the camp, which was located on the other side of the house.

Amon Goeth was married and had two children, who were living in Vienna, while he was working as the Commandant of the Plaszow camp; his wife divorced him in 1944.

Goeth had been previously married and his first wife had divorced him in 1934, according to the book entitled “Schindler,” written by David Crowe.

Like Oskar Schindler, whose wife did not accompany him to Krakow, Goeth took a mistress, Ruth Irene Kalder, who was one of Oskar Schindler’s secretaries. Goeth lived lavishly and drank heavily, just like his friend Schindler.

Goeth’s mistress remained loyal to him and kept a photograph of Amon on her night table until the day she died.

In an interview with a British journalist in 1983, Ruth Irene Kalder, described Goeth as a charming man with impeccable table manners. She said that she never regretted, for one second, her relationship with Amon, which began when she was 25 years old. Kalder committed suicide in 1983, on the day after this interview.

Allegedly, Ruth Irene had become distraught when she learned that the 82-minute documentary, which the journalist was making, was not just about Oskar Schindler, but would include a negative portrayal of her former lover, Amon Goeth, who was also the father of her love child, Monika, born in November 1945.

Kalder was a young, beautiful woman with a slender figure, a former actress and an experienced secretary; why she chose to live with a monster like Amon Goeth remains a mystery to this day.

Trump failed to mention Jews in his Holocaust Remembrance Day statement

Filed under: Uncategorized — furtherglory @ 7:17 am

You can read all about the latest controversy on this news article:

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/donald-trump-holocaust-memorial-statement-international-remembrance-day-jews-racism-a7550491.html

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

House Republicans blocked a resolution advanced by Democrats on Tuesday declaring that Jews were the primary victims of the Holocaust. From the Washington Examiner:

Led by [House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe] Crowley, Democrats tried to force the House to vote on the resolution he introduced last week calling on the White House “to affirm that the Nazi regime targeted the Jewish people in its perpetration of the Holocaust.” More than 100 House Democrats co-sponsored the measure.

End quote

Where was Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner? Why didn’t Jared advise Trump that although some non-Jews might have died in the Nazi concentration camps, it is only the Jewish deaths that count. Nobody cares about non-Jews who might have died in a Nazi concentration camp.

On this previous blog post, I wrote about the records kept by the Nazis:   https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2013/05/10/30000-records-kept-by-the-nazis-but-not-one-name-of-anyone-who-died-in-a-gas-chamber/

In 1998, I wrote, on my scrapbookpages.com website, about the classification of the prisoners at the Dachau concentration camp. This was written before I became a Holocaust denier.

The following quote is from my scrapbookpages.com website:

Begin quote

The Dachau concentration camp prisoners were classified by nationality and by the type of crime allegedly committed. When the Dachau camp was liberated on April 29, 1945, the largest number of prisoners in the whole Dachau system, including the 123 sub-camps, were classified as political prisoners, who numbered 43,401; the majority of them were Catholic. The political prisoners included Communists, Social Democrats, anarchists, spies, and anti-Fascist resistance fighters from the Nazi occupied countries such as France, Belgium, Norway, the Netherlands, and Poland.

Before World War II started in 1939, the number of foreigners in the Dachau main camp was insignificant, as most of the prisoners were German or Austrian, including a few Jews. During the war, the Germans and Austrians were a minority among the Dachau prisoners; the average number of Germans at Dachau during the war was about 3,000, according to The Official Report by the U.S. Seventh Army, which was based on two days of interviews with the survivors of the camp.

The Official Report states on page 16: “Some two thousand Germans were evacuated and killed in the last big transport a few days before our occupation of Dachau.” Other sources say that the German prisoners were released and forced to serve in the German Army.

The largest national group in the main Dachau camp was the Polish prisoners, followed by Russians, French, Yugoslavs, Germans, Jews and Czechs, according to the Official Report.
