Holocaust website can’t explain why the Holocaust happened

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?

White House Holocaust Remembrance Day statement failed to mention Jews

This news article tells about Donald Trump’s Holocaust Remembrance Day statement:

http://www.slate.com/blogs/the_slatest/2017/02/07/republicans_block_vote_on_resolution_stating_that_holocaust_targeted_jews.html

The Donald failed to mention Jews in his Holocaust Remembrance Day statement.

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote from news article:

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

So-called “other groups” who were killed by “Hitler’s regime” don’t count. The Holocaust is about the Jews. Why didn’t Trump’s Jewish son-in-law advise him on this subject.

My blog is breaking all records for the number of hits

Filed under: Holocaust, Uncategorized — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 1:27 pm

In the last two days, my blog has been breaking records for the number of hits. This morning, I set out to find out why.

It seems that it is one of my blog posts, written several years ago, that is suddenly getting thousands of hits: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2011/09/06/dying-victims-scratched-the-walls-of-the-auschwitz-gas-chamber-with-their-fingernails/

I believe that these scratches on the wall have been made by tourists in recent years. I don’t believe that little babies were held up to scratch the gas chamber walls, in an attempt to get out.

The famous Wannsee house — then and now

Famous house where the Holocaust was planned

Famous house where the Holocaust was planned

I copied the photo above from a recent article in USA today that you can read here.

My photograph above, taken several years ago, shows the front of the Wannsee villa, as you approach from a short straight driveway off a street named Am Grossen Wannsee. (Wannsee is pronounced VON-say.)

The property has now been converted into a Holocaust Museum, which opened in 1992 on the fiftieth anniversary of the conference.

Wannsee is a famous suburb of Berlin, where Brad Pitt once rented a house, when he was making a movie in Germany several years ago.

My blog post today has nothing to do with Brad Pitt, but I wanted my readers to know that Wannsee is a famous location in Germany — where the rich and famous live.

More important is the fact that Wannsee is famous as the place where the Holocaust was planned.

The following quote is from my website:

After World War II ended on May 8, 1945, the Allied powers began a search for the Nazi documents that they would need as evidence at the Nuremberg International Military Tribunal which was set to begin in November 1945. They found tons of paperwork including secret documents hidden in salt mines and behind walls in the Nazi administration buildings. But the one most important document, the order signed by Adolf Hitler which gave the authority for the genocide of the Jews, was never found.

Finally, in 1947, long after the first proceedings of the Nuremberg IMT had ended, the minutes of a conference held on January 20, 1942 at a villa in Wannsee, a district of Berlin, were found. At this conference, the plans for the “Final Solution to the Jewish Question” had been discussed. Today, tourists can stand in the very room where the plans were made for the genocide of the Jews.

Fifteen top officials of the Nazi bureaucracy and the SS attended the Wannsee conference, which was led by 38-year-old Obergruppenführer Reinhard Heydrich, the chief of the Reich Security Main Office (RSHA).

On May 27, 1942, Reinhard Heydrich was wounded when a group of Czech resistance fighters, who had escaped to England, returned and made an attempt on his life in Prague. Heydrich died of his wounds on June 4, 1942.

The minutes or protocols of the Wannsee meeting, 15 pages in all, were written by 36-year-old Adolf Eichmann. The copy that was found in 1947 was undated and unsigned; it had no stamp of any Bureau. The copy appeared to be a draft report of the meeting that was held on January 20, 1942 at Wannsee.

The full title of the Conference was “The Final Solution of the Jewish Question in Europe.” The original phrase was “a final territorial solution of the Jewish question.” The term “Jewish Question” referred to a question that had been discussed for years: Should the Jews have their own state within the country where they lived, or should they assimilate?

On the witness stand at the Nuremberg IMT, Hermann Goering said that the conference was about “the total solution to the Jewish Question” and that it meant the evacuation of the Jews, not extermination.

What happens when you google “Did the Holocaust happen?”

Quote from the article, cited above:

Begin quote

Googling “Did the Holocaust happen” leads to numerous top-ranked search results from white supremacist and Holocaust denial sources, including a top-ranked result from online neo-Nazi site Stormfront, the Guardian reported Sunday.

Google is still pulling up a Stormfront forum post calling the Holocaust, the brutal Nazi mass murder of at least 6 million Jews, 1.8 million Poles and millions of other persecuted peoples during World War II, a “lie” as of Monday evening. The Stormfront thread appears before the Wikipedia article on Holocaust denial and a list of common FAQs on the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum’s website.

End quote

There are two sides to every story — except the Holocaust. When it comes to the Holocaust, there is one side that you must believe in 20 countries around the world, if you don’t want to go to prison.

America still has free speech, but not for long. I am expecting that a Holocaust denial law will soon be passed in America. When that happens, I will be on my way to prison. I will be on the wrong side of history.

What is the real story on Jan Karski?

Jan Karski

One of the readers of my blog put up a link to an old article about Jan Karski, which was written in the year 2000.

You can also read about Jan Karski on this website: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1383612/Jan-Karski-warned-Holocaust-1942-believed-him.html

Jan Karski is famous because he is the man who first TOLD THE WORLD ABOUT THE HOLOCAUST. No one knew that the Nazis were killing Jews, until Karski BROKE INTO AUSCHWITZ and told the world about this horror. I wrote about this on this blog post: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2015/11/10/jan-karski-is-back-in-the-news/

One of my very first blog posts, back in the 2012, was about Jan Karski: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2012/05/27/bob-dylan-and-jan-karski-to-receive-the-presidential-medal-of-freedom/

I also wrote about how Jan Karski told the world about the Holocaust in another blog post: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2015/08/31/jan-karski-the-man-who-first-told-the-world-about-the-holocaust/

Treblinka memorial site is in today’s news

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust — Tags: , , , , — furtherglory @ 11:24 am

The first place that I visited, when I started traveling to Holocaust sites in 1998, was Treblinka, a camp in Poland where it is claimed, by Holocaust True Believers, that millions of Jews were killed. Holocaust deniers claim that Treblinka was a transit camp. I believe that it was a transit camp, but what do I know?

My 1998 photo of the huge monument at Treblinka

The huge monument at Treblinka, shown in the photo above, is located on the spot where the Jews were allegedly killed. No one is allowed to dig anywhere near this monument to prove, or disprove, that bodies were buried there.

You can read a news story about a trip to Holocaust sites in Poland, taken recently by Pam Kancher, on this website: http://www.heritagefl.com/story/2016/09/23/features/there-but-for-the-grace-of-god-go-i/6856.html

Begin quote

This past July, the Holocaust Center sponsored its first Jewish Heritage Tour to Poland and Prague. Thirty people joined me [Pam Karcher] on an emotional 10-day journey of reflection and remembrance. At our recent reunion we each shared a memory that stood out from all the rest. By far the most meaningful experience I had was visiting the Treblinka memorial.

Treblinka was the site of the Nazis’ second-largest extermination camp after Auschwitz-Birkenau. It is estimated that from July 1942 through November 1943 between 870,000 and 925,000 Jews were killed there-on average 2,000 men, women and children were gassed each day and their bodies burnt on huge, open-air cremation pyres.

Treblinka was not a work camp. It was built as a death camp. Jews were deported there from the Warsaw Ghetto as well as from other areas of Central Poland, primarily Warsaw, Radom and Krakow. Following an uprising by the prisoners in August 1943, the extermination camp was demolished and abandoned.

[The most important part of the news article is this quote:]

The Treblinka Museum of Struggle and Martyrdom, dedicated in 1964, was built in the shadow of the gas chambers, the original buildings having long ago been plowed and planted over. The only thing left were the ashes and memories. The outdoor museum is a symbolic Jewish cemetery made of 17,000 boulders of varying shapes and sizes-some say they represent the lost Jewish communities of the Holocaust. One hundred-forty of the boulders were engraved with the name of a town or village from which the Jews were deported.

End quote

There are no bodies that were buried in the location of the symbolic cemetery, shown in my photo above. That is why it is called a SYMBOLIC cemetery, not an actual cemetery where bodies are buried.  The purpose of this symbolic cemetery is to prevent anyone from digging up the ground to see if any bodies are  actually buried there.

In my humble opinion, there are no bodies buried in this area because Treblinka was a TRANSIT  camp, where no Jews were deliberately killed.

How did the Holocaust gas chambers really work?

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust — Tags: , — furtherglory @ 9:18 am

One of the readers of my blog asked this in a comment: “Lets just say for now that the Holocaust actually happened? How would you describe it?”

I assume that the real question is “How did the gas chambers work?”

I have been blogging for over six years now; in the year 2001, I wrote an explanation of how the gas chambers worked, according to two eye-witnesses who wrote books about it.

My photo of the gas chamber in the main Auschwitz camp

My 2005 photo of the gas chamber in Auschwitz

The Krema I gas chamber in the main Auschwitz camp, shown in the 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 the photo above, had been added.

In September 1944, the original gas chamber in the Auschwitz main camp had been divided into four small rooms. In the 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.

My photo above was taken with flash; the room is actually very dimly lit and looks much darker.

This YouTube video shows what tourists see today, when they take a tour of the main Auschwitz camp:

Elie Wiesel still lying his head off at the age of 87

Filed under: Buchenwald, Germany — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 7:42 am

Elie Wiesel has recently admitted that he has no ID number tattooed on his arm, which is an admission that he was never in a concentration camp, as he has been claiming for years.

He was not a prisoner at Auschwitz, where all incoming prisoners were immediately tattooed with a number on their arm.

The gate into the Buchenwald camp is shown in the photo above.

He was not at Buchenwald which was a class II concentration camp in Germany. The sign on the gate into the camp reads “Jedem das Seine” which is German for “Everyone gets what he deserves.”

I have a section about Buchenwald on my website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/Buchenwald/index.html

According to a recent news article, Elie Wiesel was quoted as follows:

“I belong to a generation that has seen probably the darkest of its moments and lived them …but also the happiest. The Day of Liberation [of Buchenwald]…when suddenly, the Americans came in! Days earlier, 10,000 left Buchenwald [to be killed] and [we] were the last to leave literally the last…. we were supposed to leave the next day. ”
