I have been to Dachau

Filed under: Dachau, Germany, Holocaust, Uncategorized — Tags: , — furtherglory @ 8:12 am

The title of my blog post today is a line from a news article which you can read in full at http://www.kiowacountysignal.com/opinion/20170402/rich-kiper-comparing-planned-parenthood-abortions-to-holocaust-is-fair

I have been to Dachau several times and I have a whole section about the camp on my website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/DachauScrapbook/KZDachau/index.html

The quote from the news article continues with this:

The site of the crematoriums and the chilling sculpture of humans entangled in barbed wire is a visual representation of an evil that condemned six million Jews to death for being guilty only of being Jews. The fact that six million innocent Jews were exterminated is verified by the US Holocaust Memorial Museum as well as innumerable other sources. Only Holocaust deniers refute that number.

The photo immediately above was taken during a light rain. It shows the back side of the monument at Dachau.

But to get back to basics, the news article begins with this quote:

Begin quote

Sen. Steve Fitzgerald recently was attacked by Planned Parenthood (PP), the Kansas Interfaith Action organization, and the Midwest Center for Holocaust Education. The attacks resulted from a letter that Sen. Fitzgerald wrote to PP regarding a donation that had been made to PP in the senator’s name by a Prairie Village resident.

The pro-life senator expressed his “dismay” that someone would make a donation to PP in his name. He went on to state that “This is as bad – or worse – as having one’s name associated with Dachau.” Dachau was a Nazi concentration camp in which 41,500 Jews and political prisoners were exterminated.

End quote

Notice that Jews were always exterminated, like bugs, but never murdered nor killed. That is because Jews were allegedly killed with Zyklon-B, the same way that the lice in the clothing was killed.

I have a whole section on my website about the Dachau gas chambers: http://www.scrapbookpages.com/DachauScrapbook/GasChamber/Index.html

You can read a news article here about Vice President Mike Pence and his recent visit to the Dachau memorial site: http://www.jta.org/2017/02/19/news-opinion/politics/mike-pence-visits-site-of-nazi-camp-dachau

The point of the article, cited above, is contained in this quote which is at the very end of the article:

Begin quote

The visit [to Dachau] comes after an outcry over the Trump Administration’s statement issued last month for international Holocaust Remembrance Day, which did not specifically mention Jews.

End quote

There is a law in Germany that any official visitor must first go to Dachau and place a wreath in honor of the Jews who were killed by the Germans. After all these years, the German must still be demonized and they must forever hang their heads in shame. That’s what happens when you kill God’s Chosen People.

There are now over one million Jews back in Germany and they are keeping an eye on the Germans, to make sure that they bow down to the Jews.

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

The Pences visited the International Memorial at the center of [the Dachau] camp, where they laid a wreath.  They also visited a Jewish memorial and a Catholic memorial on the grounds, and attended a service at the Church of Reconciliation, located on the camp grounds.

They also toured the barracks, a crematorium, and a gas chamber.

Naor described to Pence the work he did at the camp, and a typical meal, which he said was a slice of bread. “If it was a miracle that we survived, I don’t know” what it was, Naor said.

End quote

Maybe it was a huge chunck of bread and a bowl of soup that this prisoner was given for each meal, and that’s how he survived.

I wrote about Dachau on this previous blog post:

https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2015/04/14/how-many-prisoners-were-murdered-at-dachau/

The following quote is also from the news article:

Begin quote

Dachau was established in 1933, and served as the model for all other Nazi camps. Over 200,000 people from across Europe were imprisoned in Dachau and over 41,000 killed. U.S. soldiers liberated Dachau in April 1945.

End quote

That is old news. The number of prisoners who died at Dachau has been lowered considerably. I wrote about the number of prisoners that were killed at Dachau on this blog post:

https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2015/04/14/how-many-prisoners-were-murdered-at-dachau/

The point of all this is that, no matter how low the Germans bow down to the Jews, they can never be forgiven for Dachau, or any of the other camps where Jews were imprisoned.

Jewish Degenerate art which Hitler hated

New Holocaust Museum in Skokie, Illinois

New Holocaust Museum in Skokie, Illinois

You can read about the new Holocaust museum in Skokie in this news article: http://chicagotonight.wttw.com/2016/01/05/architecture-tells-its-own-story-illinois-holocaust-museum

The architecture of the Museum is an example of the “degenerate art” which Hitler hated.

The following quote is from the news article:

Originally opened as a small storefront in Skokie in 1984, the Illinois Holocaust Museum initially came out of a protest to a neo-Nazi rally in the late 1970s. The rally never happened and instead, in 1981, the Holocaust Memorial Foundation of Illinois was formed, largely via the efforts of local survivors.

I previously blogged about “degenerate art” which Hitler hated: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2010/04/17/entartete-kunst-degenerate-art/

The point that I am trying to make here, dear readers, is that there was a vast difference between the thinking of the Jews and the thinking of Hitler and the Nazis.  Hitler wanted the Jews out of Germany because he wanted a country for the German people, not a country for Jews.

This quote is from the beginning of the news article, cited above:

Like Star Wars, the space we’re currently standing in has physical “light” and “dark” sides, says my tour guide, a petite blonde who grew up in Chicago and “geeks out” over all things architecture.

She’s referring to a critical component of the overarching design of the Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center, a building designed by Chicago architect Stanley Tigerman which opened to the public in 2009. The light and dark refer to the architectural experience visitors are meant to have as they move through the museum, beginning with a stark industrial feel at the onset, ultimately moving towards rounded white rooms flooded with natural light. At the time it opened, Chicago Tribune architectural critic Blair Kamin called it both “moving and flawed.”

Today, we’ve just missed the school tours and the building is relatively quiet, save for TVs in the exhibits, many of which contain survivors talking, remembering.
