Family of deceased “Righteous among Nations” award recipient rejects highest Jewsish honor

One of the most famous recipients of the Jewish honor, known as “Righteous among Nations” was Oskar Schindler who saved 1,200 Jews from certain death, as told in the famous Spielberg film Schindler’s List.

Family members of the first Arab to be given this prestigious honor “have rejected the accolade because of their hatred for Israel,” according to a news article which you can read in full here.

According to the article: “Egyptian doctor Mohamed Helmy was honored posthumously last month by Israel’s Holocaust memorial Yad Vashem for hiding a Jew in Berlin during wartime.”

So an Arab has been honored for saving only one Jew?  The Jews at Yad Vashem must be scraping the bottom of the barrel to find non-Jews who saved at least one Jew during World War II.

Most non-Jews had no sympathy for the Jews during the Holocaust, and did not want to risk their own lives to hide a Jew.

When Oskar Schindler left his factory, which was a sub-camp of the Gross-Rosen concentration camp, to escape from the Nazis at the end of the war, he was given a ring by the Jewish prisoners whom he had saved.

The ring had been made by the prisoners, who  used gold from the dental work taken out of the mouth of Schindlerjude Simon Jeret. The ring was inscribed “Whoever saves one life saves the world entire.”  Is this what it really said inside the gold ring made by the Jewish prisoners?  Some Holocaust deniers claim that the ring said: “He who saves ONE JEW saves the world entire.”

Do the Jews really believe that saving the life of one goyim is the same as saving the life of one Jew?

Wait a minute!  That “Nazi monster” Amon Goeth saved Jews from being sent to the Belzec death camp when he accepted bribes in exchange for sending these doomed Jews to a labor camp instead. Goeth should be given a posthumous award for saving hundreds of Jews from certain death at Belzec.  An Egyptian doctor saved one Jewish girl in Berlin and he gets Israel’s highest award for a non-Jew.  And then, his family rejects the award. Allegedly, there were 10,000 Jews who hid in Germany and were never sent to a Nazi camp.  There could be as many as 10,000 Righteous Gentiles in Germany who deserve a Yad Vashem award.

Sidney Glucksman was a witness to the atrocities at Gross-Rosen and Dachau concentration camps

Someone who is doing research on 11 men, who were possibly sent to the Gross-Rosen concentration camp as Nacht und Nebel prisoners, e-mailed me with a request to find an eye-witness who was at Gross-Rosen.  I don’t know much about Gross-Rosen so I had to do a google search; my search turned up the name of a witness (Sidney Glucksman) on my own website  Sidney Glucksman was 12 years old in 1940 when he was sent to the Gross Rosen camp; he was later transferred to Dachau where he was liberated by American soldiers on April 29, 1945.

This quote is from a page on my website. Scroll down, it is at the bottom of the page. You can read the page in full here:

Sidney Glucksman was a prisoner at Dachau working in a factory, located just outside the concentration camp, which made German uniforms. When he was liberated from Dachau by American troops, Glucksman told Jewish American soldier Jerome Klein that he had not had a shower for six years. Klein gave him a bar of soap and a clean American uniform to wear.

Contrary to Nerin E. Gun’s discription of babies being gassed along with their mothers at Dachau, Glucksman told Kim Martineau, a reporter for The Hartford, CT Courant, that he remembers mothers separated from babies, walking naked to the “showers” to be gassed, their babies thrown into sacks and beaten or tossed in the air for target practice.

Strangely, Glucksman was not gassed at Gross-Rosen, even though he was only 12 years old when he was sent there. He was allowed to live, even though he was a witness to the gassing of prisoners at two different camps and the killing of babies in sacks.

Glucksman was a concentration camp prisoner for six years (1940 – 1945), but he never took a shower the whole time.  Apparently, that’s how Glucksman managed to survive: he was smart enough not to enter a shower room, so he was not gassed like the rest of the prisoners.

Gross-Rosen is now in Poland, but it was in the Greater German Reich when a concentration camp was located there.  On the map below, Gross-Rosen is shown on the far left side.
