Now I understand what Quora is… (updated)

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 9:28 am

I was mystified by Quora, but someone explained it to me. Quora is the Jewish Wikipedia.

Anyone can put up something on Wikipedia, and anyone can put up something on Quora, but anything put up on Quora must follow the Jewish version of the truth.

Here is an example of something put up on Quora: https://www.quora.com/Are-there-any-surviving-original-gas-chambers-from-the-Holocaust

If you click on the link above, you will find an article which includes a photo that is very similar to a photo that I took at Hartheim castle. The photo, which was taken by someone else at Hartheim Castle, was claimed, on Quora, to be a photo of a gas chamber.

This photo, taken by an unknown person, is not a photo of a gas chamber at Hartheim Castle.

My photo of the same ramp at Hartheim Castle is also not a photo of a gas chamber. The place at the end of this ramp is not a gas chamber.

Irene Zizblatt is still telling her Holocaust survivor story to students

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust, Uncategorized, World War II — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 3:32 pm

I have written several blog posts about Irene Zizblatt in the past: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/tag/irene-zisblatt/

This blog post is my best one about Irene: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2012/11/25/stuck-in-the-door-of-the-gas-chamber-how-irene-zisblatt-survived-auschwitz-birkenau/

Irene is still out talking to students in America about how she manged to survive during the Holocaust.

The following quote is from this news article: http://cornellsun.com/2017/05/04/holocaust-survivor-irene-zisblatt-shares-experience-at-concentration-camp/

Begin quote from news article:

Irene Zisblatt, a survivor of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp and other atrocities during the Holocaust, shared her story on Wednesday.

The event, hosted by Cornell Hillel, invites a Holocaust survivor every year, “so people truly understand what happened during the Holocaust and get an account from someone who [was] there,” according to Jeremy Marchuck ’19, chair of cultural programming.

“We are the last generation who are able to do this so we want to ensure that as many people hear these stories as possible,” Marchuck said.

During the presentation, Zisblatt described how her youth and her family were destroyed by Nazi hatred.

“At the age of nine, I was thrown out of the one thing that I loved most, my school, because I was a Jew. And from that day, my world changed, and so did the world,” she said.

She then shared her experiences in a ghetto after being forced there with fellow Hungarian Jews.

“I didn’t even know what a ghetto was, but they made me feel that I had to be punished for something and leave my home,” she said. “The ghetto was a brickyard, but there were no bricks being manufactured. There were just people everywhere suffering.”

Zisblatt also discussed her experiences in Auschwitz, in a labor camp and on a death march.

“I was reduced to a number that represented a nothing. I was stripped of my identity and my dignity,” she said. “That was their first process of dehumanizing us.”

The Majdanek concentration camp is in the news

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust, Uncategorized, World War II — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 2:34 pm

I have visited the Majdanek camp, and I wrote about it on my website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/Poland/Majdanek/index.html

This news article tells about the Majdanek concentration camp in Poland: https://www.wired.com/2017/04/vr-holocaust-history-preservation

The photo below is at the top of the news article.

The Majdanek monument in the far distance looks like a hat on the head of the man in the photo

You can read more about the Majdanek camp on my web site at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/Poland/Majdanek/Majdanek01.html

My photo of the monument

This huge monument is very near a major highway which goes past the former Majdanek concentration camp.

My photo of the other side of the monument

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

Pinchas Gutter has returned to Majdanek at least a dozen times, but this trip is his final one to the onetime Nazi concentration camp. His first was one he was 11, when he was taken to Majdanek; now he’s 85 years old, and this is the last time he’ll come here to tell people what the Nazis did to his family. As he rides up to the shuttered camp in the backseat of a chauffeured sedan, he talks about why he’s told his story so many times. Without that living, breathing reminder, the Holocaust becomes easy to forget—or even deny. Without personal accounts, Gutter says, it’s hard for people to accept its atrocities as “the gospel truth.”

Gutter is right about that. That’s why his trip to Majdanek, and the horrific experiences he recounts in the camp’s barracks and crematorium, are being preserved with virtual reality—thanks to the USC Shoah Foundation.

Comparing Planned Parenthood abortions to the Holocaust is fair game

Filed under: Health, Holocaust, Uncategorized — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 4:16 pm

The title of my blog post today is the title of a news article in the Kiowa County Signal by Rich Kiper. You can read the article in full here: http://www.kiowacountysignal.com/opinion/20170402/rich-kiper-comparing-planned-parenthood-abortions-to-holocaust-is-fair

Kiper is defending the remarks of Senator Fitzgerald, who compared the seven million babies killed by planned parenthood to the six million Jews killed in the holocaust.

I blogged about this same article once before in a blog post entitled “I have been to Dachau” which you can read here: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2017/04/03/i-have-been-to-dachau/  I am writing more about this article from a different angle.

The following is a quote from the Kiowa Signal news article:

Begin Quote

Since the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion, Planned Parenthood has performed 6,937,406 abortions. This number is based on PP annual reports of 1978-2014 and studies conducted on PP abortions between 1973 and 1978. The numbers do not include abortions performed in 2015 and 2016. Therefore, according to its own reports, PP has exterminated more babies that the Nazis exterminated Jews during the Holocaust. Based on the numbers, Sen. Fitzgerald is correct in that PP is “more insidious than (the Nazis).”

End Quote

Was planned parenthood more insidious than the Nazis?

Begin Quote from Kiawa County Signal news article:

Sen. Fitzgerald is right to be angry with an organization that has killed more babies than the Nazis killed Jews….

He [Fitzgerald] did, though, very clearly compare PP aborting 6,937,406 unwanted babies to the Nazi killing of six million unwanted Jews. Abortion is a horrific act that involves killing an unborn child. Pro-life adherents should praise Sen. Fitzgerald for having the courage to speak truth, knowing full well that he would be subjected to attack by those for whom facts are irrelevant and the life of the unborn is not sacred.

End quote from news article

I think that Kiper is confused.  The Jews are sacred; unborn Children are not.  I am surprised that I need to explain this to you people.

If this were not the case, we would need to be building a lot more monuments to the 7 million children insidiously murdered by planned parenthood.

The annual “March of the Living” is coming up soon

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust, Uncategorized — Tags: , — furtherglory @ 3:20 pm

During the annual March of the Living, Jewish students from Israel, and from many other countries around the world, march from the gatehouse at Auschwitz-Birkenau to the International monument which is at the other end of the camp.

My photo of the Auschwitz-Birkenau gatehouse, taken from inside the camp

My 2005 photo of the International Monument

The first time that I ever visited Auschwitz was in 1998. I had  hired a tour guide who flew to Poland from New York City and met me at my hotel in Warsaw. She warned me, that if I ever wanted to come back to visit Auschwitz at some time in the future, that I should avoid the time when young people from Israel would be there for the annual “March of the Living.”

I took her advice and was never there during the annual “March of the Living”.  It is too late for me now — I will never get to see the Jewish victory march through what is left of the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp.

My 2005 photo shows another view of the International Monument

Today, I was alerted to the annual “March of the Living” in this recent news article in the Jerusalem Post: http://www.jpost.com/Diaspora/Elie-Wiesels-son-to-light-torch-at-March-of-the-Living-486497

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote:

The focus of this year’s event –the 29th of its kind– is how to preserve the memory and lessons of the Holocaust after the last survivor has passed away.

In the framework of the march, Ministers of Education from 12 European countries will participate in an unprecedented gathering on the eve of Holocaust Martyrs’ and Heroes’ Remembrance Day, organized by March of the Living organizers and the Austrian Federal Minister for Education, Dr. Sonja Hammerschmid.

“Every country and society has its own episodes of painful history, be it connected to events of mass violence, to colonialism or others” said Hammerschmid. “Austria and Austrian schools need to confront the long history of antisemitism, including before the rise of the Nazis, and especially the involvement of so many Austrians in atrocities during World War II – and foremost the Holocaust. We in Austria feel privileged to learn from the experiences of other countries – like Israel – and we gladly invite others to share ours.”

Over 10,000 youths from around the world will participate in the march, alongside an honorary delegation of 75 Holocaust survivors from different countries, the eldest of which is 103 years old.

American students were asked to debate in favor of the Holocaust

Filed under: Dachau, Holocaust, Uncategorized — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 8:29 am

Photo that is displayed in the United States Holocaust Museum shows Jews marching to the gas chamber

I am blogging today about a news article which you can read in full at http://www.attn.com/stories/16077/students-asked-debate-holocaust

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

Students in Oswego County, New York were asked to argue for and against the Nazi’s “Final Solution” as part of an assignment.

The “Final Solution” was Nazi Germany’s plan to exterminate the Jews, which was formulated and implemented during World War II as an answer to the so-called “Jewish Question.” As the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum explains, “Six million Jewish men, women, and children were killed during the Holocaust—two-thirds of the Jews living in Europe before World War II.”

End quote

What a revolting development this is!

As everyone knows, the Jews were killed for no reason. Jews are “God’s Chosen People” who are allowed to lie, steal and cheat because they are Jews.

The article says that “six million were KILLED”. Apparently the Jews were taken care of so well that no one died of disease; the Jews in the sacred “six million” were all killed.  Apparently, no one died of typhus or any other disease.

Bodies of Jews were cremated in ovens like this at Dachau

The bodies of the dead Jews were cremated in an effort to stop the spread of disease. However, no Jews died of disease, according to the official Holocaust story.

Ashes of unknown prisoners, who died of typhus, are buried in this grave at Dachau

Begin another quote from the same news article:

The assignment was offered in a “Principles of Literary Representation” class taught through the CiTi/BOCES New Vision Program — which allows high school students to take college-level courses on SUNY’s Oswego campus three times a week. According to Syacruse.com, there were no Jewish students in the class that year.

According to the text of the assignment, the debate was not meant for people to be sympathetic to the Nazi point of view, but rather the assignment was meant to get students out of their comfort zones and teach them to debate points that are against their ideological perspectives, Syracruse.com reports.

Bronia Brandman watched two of her sisters being sent to the gas chambers at Auschwitz-Birkenau

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust, Uncategorized, World War II — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 2:38 pm

The title of my blog post today is a quote from a news article which you can read in full here: http://www.jewishpress.com/news/us-news/holocaust-survivor-86-returning-to-auschwitz-with-idf-officers/2017/03/28/

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

Forty supporters of Friends of the Israel Defense Forces (FIDF) from across the US will embark on an unprecedented mission to Poland and Israel on April 24 to May 3, with IDF soldiers and officers, as well as Holocaust survivors – one of whom is returning to Auschwitz for the first time since her liberation.

Bronia Brandman, 86, who was born in Jaworzno, Poland, watched two of her sisters being sent to the gas chambers at Auschwitz-Birkenau. Except for her older brother and cousin, who also reside in the United States, her entire family perished in the Holocaust.

End quote

Can you believe this! Those cruel Germans sent two girls to the gas chamber and made a third girl watch as her sisters marched to the gas chamber!!!

My photo of Talbrucktor tower above the gate into Marienplatz in Munich

As I have written several times, I lived in Germany for 20 months, after World War II was over. I met many German men and women who were all very nice to me. I was amazed that the German people never got upset about anything.  Maybe it was different during the war, and maybe Jews were treated differently by the Germans.

Brandia is the girl on the right in the front row

Begin quote from news article:

“I came to Auschwitz in 1943 as a child of 12,” Brandman said. “My parents and four siblings were consigned to the gas chambers. The daily bestiality and dehumanization was beyond words, and the world’s silence was deafening. I never wished to return to that place of our degradation and annihilation, but to return in the company of our noblest, bravest of the brave – our IDF soldiers, makes my spirit soar with pride and hope.”

End quote

Bronia Brandman did not give any explanation for why her parents and four siblings were sent to the gas chambers, but she was spared. It seems that the Nazis made sure that there were child survivors, who would live a long time, and tell the world about the gas chambers where 6 million Jews were killed.

“Into the valley of death rode the 6 million.”

6th grade students in America should not be taught the Holocaust

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust, Uncategorized — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 5:12 pm

Block 11 in Auschwitz main camp

Fat-faced survivors march out of Auschwitz-Birkenau after the camp was liberated

This recent news article tells about how sixth graders in America are being taught the Holocaust:

http://www.tcpalm.com/story/specialty-publications/your-news/st-lucie-county/reader-submitted/2017/03/27/holocaust-survivors-recount-history-sixth-graders/99685370/

What am I complaining about now, you ask. I don’t think that the Holocaust should be taught in the 6th grade in America. The Holocaust didn’t happen in America. The story of the Holocaust has nothing to do with America, where no Jews were killed during World War II.

Sixth grade students in America are so far removed from the Holocaust that they can’t possibly understand why the Jews were Holocausted.

Republicans blocked a resolution which declared that Jews were the primary victims of the Holocaust

Filed under: Holocaust, Trump, Uncategorized — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 10:04 am

I am blogging today about a news article which you can read in full at http://www.slate.com/blogs/the_slatest/2017/02/07/republicans_block_vote_on_resolution_stating_that_holocaust_targeted_jews.html

This is the headline of the article:

House Republicans Avoid Voting on a Resolution Stating That the Holocaust Targeted Jews

The following quote is from the news article:;

Begin quote

The resolution, a shrewd effort to pin Republicans down on something the Trump administration has needlessly made an issue, condemned the White House’s Holocaust Remembrance Day statement, which failed to mention Jews or the anti-Semitism that led to Adolf Hitler’s genocide against them. It also called for the House to reiterate “the indisputable fact that the Nazi regime targeted the Jewish people in its perpetration of the Holocaust,” condemn Holocaust denialism, and demand acknowledgment from the White House that Jews were targeted.

In the wake of controversy over the Holocaust Remembrance Day statement, the White House defended it, saying that it had wished to be inclusive by acknowledging that other groups had been killed by Hitler’s regime as well.

End quote

The problem is that President Donald Trump has not bowed low enough to the Jews, in spite of the fact that his daughter Ivanka and his son-in-law Jared Kushner are both Jewish.

The victims of the Holocaust included many categories of people besides Jews. However, the non-Jews that were killed are not important. Only the Jews count, and Trump seems to ignore this. What is WRONG with him?

The attacks at these cemeteries has me pondering

Filed under: True Crime, Uncategorized — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 5:53 am

The title of my blog post today is a line from this news article:

https://holohoax.wordpress.com/2013/10/26/holocaust-or-holohoax-05-20-amazing-facts/

You can read the original article in The Detroit news at http://www.detroitnews.com/story/news/michigan/2017/02/27/bomb-threats-defaced-graves-alarm-local-jewish-centers/98507850/

The reason that I am quoting this line from the news article is because the recent attacks on Jewish cemetaries also has me pondering. Why would someone be smashing Jewish grave stones now? I immediately thought that it was Jews who were smashing Jewish gravestones in order to get attention.

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

Two years ago, I interviewed some Jewish Holocaust survivors in southeast Michigan exploring a central question: How far has America come since the Holocaust?

I wanted to find out if they thought we as a nation had learned from that scourge on history.

Because looking back, America arrived painfully late in denouncing the atrocities against Jews carried out in Nazi concentration camps during World War II.

Among those I spoke to was Guy Stern, a Holocaust survivor and former member of the Allied forces who is the current director of the Institute of the Righteous at the Holocaust Memorial Center in Farmington Hills.

Stern told me the world is still dealing with the bitter legacy of the Holocaust and the lesson is that we must continue to speak out against anti-Semitism, racism and other forms of bigotry wherever they are.

End quote

One of the cities where grave stones were first demolished is St. Louis, MO.  Years ago, the Jews in St. Louis had their own enclave where only Jews were allowed to live. This was one of the first gated communities in America. The Jews in St. Louis would not allow non-Jews to live in their walled-in gated community.
