Should “stepping stones” be placed on the streets of Munich?

Stepping stones with the names of dead Jews

The photo above is at the top of a  newspaper article with this headline:

“Munich Jews feud over Holocaust remembrance”

The article was recently published at: http://www.thelocal.de/20151126/munich-jews-feud-over-how-to-remember-holocaust

This quote is from the article:

For the one side it is a desecration of the names of those sent to their deaths by the murderous Nazi regime. For the other it is the largest and most democratic commemorative project in the world.

The argument centres on Stolpersteine – stumbling stones – small bronze plaques set into the pavement in front of the last place of residence of people murdered in the Holocaust.

A familiar sight in Berlin since 1996, Stolpersteine can now be found in 1,000 German municipalities and in 20 different European countries.

The photo below shows stepping stones on a street in Berlin.

Of the roughly 6 million victims of the Holocaust, 55,000 now have Stolpersteine as permanent markers of their murder.

But Munich stubbornly remains out of step. Not a single Stolperstein can be found on the southern city’s streets – despite the fact that at least 4,500 of the city’s Jews died in the genocide.

Charlotte Knobloch, President of the Jewish Community of Munich and Upper Bavaria (IKG), is fiercely opposed to the cobblestone memorials.

The 82-year-old Knobloch is herself a Holocaust survivor and, writing to the city parliament in 2014, criticized the Stolpersteine as “dishonorable and impious.”

Memorials to the Holocaust should never be placed on the ground, Knobloch argued, because they remind survivors of the dead and injured Jews who lay on the floor of concentration camps and the ruthless German soldiers who would step on them.

Oh no! The ruthless German soldiers stepped on the dead Jews?  Where were the dead Jews that were used as stepping stones?

The photo above shows Fritz Klein, a German soldier who is stepping on the dead bodies at Bergen Belsen.  Is this what Charlotte Knobloch is talking about?

In my humble opinion, Munich should NOT have stepping stones.  Leave the poor suffering Germans some pride.  Jews are now returning to Germany, and the Germans are being shoved out of the way, so that the Jews can take over again.

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

The news article continues with this quote:

Constitutional right

“1,000 other communities in Germany looked at Stolpersteine before approving them and said they were in accordance with regulations for public space and the German Constitution,” says Swartzberg, a journalist who has lived in Germany for four decades.

“Munich agreed that all forms of decentralized commemoration are permissible but not Stolpersteine. We say this distinction can’t be made.”

End quote

To sum up:  The German people have no rights, not after killing 6 million Jews.  The Jews are back and they rule Germany. Every street in Munich must have stones on the sidewalks to honor the Jews who were killed in the Holocaust.

Munich, Germany

My blog post today is about a new Jewish center that has been built in Munich, a famous tourist destination in Germany, where the Nazis formerly had their headquarters.

You can read about the documentation center in a recent New York Times article here.

This quote is from the New York Times article:

Munich is the birthplace of the Nazi party. There are walking tours of Munich which take tourists to the places associated with Hitler and the Nazis, including the house on Schleissheimerstrasse where Hitler stayed when he arrived in Munich in 1913, the Hotel Torbau which is the site of the beer hall where the SS was founded, and the room upstairs in the Hofbräuhaus where the Nazi party proclaimed its 25-point program. It was at the Hofbräuhaus that Hitler gave a two and a half hour speech on February 24, 1920 to 2,000 supporters.

A few blocks from the Marienplatz is the Feldherrenhalle where a plaque in the pavement honors the four policemen who were killed during the climax of Hitler’s Beer Hall Putsch, which also claimed the lives of 16 Nazis.

Yes, Munich is the birthplace of the Nazi party. The last time that I visited Munich in 2007, there were walking tours which took tourists to the places associated with Hitler and the Nazis, including the house on Schleissheimerstrasse where Hitler stayed when he arrived in Munich in 1913, the Hotel Torbau which is the site of the beer hall where the SS was founded, and the room upstairs in the Hofbräuhaus where the Nazi party proclaimed its 25-point program. It was at the Hofbräuhaus that Hitler gave a two and a half hour speech on February 24, 1920 to 2,000 supporters.

But all this Munich history is shon forbei. Now it is all about the Jews who are in control of Germany, and especially in control of Munich.

The Jews now  have their  own country, thanks to Hitler, but they want to live in Germany, where they want to put up their own  style of  architecture in historic German cities.

The point that I am trying to make here, in case you missed it, is that Jewish architecture does not belong in Germany. It belongs in Israel. For example, the building shown below, which is in the German city of Berlin, belongs in Israel.

Jews now saying that the country responsible for the Holocaust is “better than Israel.”

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust — Tags: , — furtherglory @ 9:31 am

According to a news article which you can read in full here,

A Facebook campaign which emerged earlier this month, urging frugal Israelis to emigrate has caused an unprecedented level of controversy over the role of economics in public opinion in Israel, as well as the strength – or weakness – of Zionism among younger Israelis.

[…]

However, an official tally indicates that emigration appears to be at the lowest rates in recent history, with liberal estimates stating that just 15,000-18,000 Israelis are living in Germany today.

Why would Jews ever want to live in Germany, the country that perpetrated the Holocaust, murdering 6 million Jews, who had never done them any harm?

According to Eliyus Paz, the head of the World Bnei Akiva in Germany, as quoted in the news article:

“People who are coming to Berlin are, more than they are saying, ‘Germany is cheap,’ they are saying ‘We have something against Israel,'” Paz stated, adding that they are “mocking Israel” by saying that the country responsible for the Holocaust is “better than Israel.”

“the country responsible for the Holocaust is better than Israel.”  What a revolting development this is!

Regarding the Facebook page which urges Jews to live in Germany, this quote is from the article:

Much controversy has been raised over a Facebook page urging Israelis to move to Berlin, with some saying the page is “anti-Zionist.”

I can’t give you the URL of the Facebook page.  You need a Facebook page of your own in order to access the pages of other people.

It is not just Berlin, but other cities in Germany, that are attracting Jews.  New synagogues are being built in Germany, including the new synagogue in Munich, which is shown in my photo below.

Why does this concern me?  Are the Jews now saying that the Germans, who killed 6 million Jews, are better than the Israelis?  I’ve never been to Israel, unfortunately.  I wanted to go there, years ago, but a Jewish person advised me that it was too dangerous  for a non-Jew to go there.
