The Holocaust just got more shocking

There were at least 42,500 Nazi ghettos, death camps, forced labour camps, brothels and other sorts of torture camps established through Europe:

“We knew before how horrible life in the camps and ghettos was,” he said, “but the numbers are unbelievable.”

The documented camps include not only “killing centers” but also thousands of forced labor camps, where prisoners manufactured war supplies; prisoner-of-war camps; sites euphemistically named “care” centers, where pregnant women were forced to have abortions or their babies were killed after birth; and brothels, where women were coerced into having sex with German military personnel.

Auschwitz and a handful of other concentration camps have come to symbolize the Nazi killing machine in the public consciousness. Likewise, the Nazi system for imprisoning Jewish families in hometown ghettos has become associated with a single site — the Warsaw Ghetto, famous for the 1943 uprising. But these sites, infamous though they are, represent only a minuscule fraction of the entire German network, the new research makes painfully clear.

As one of the researchers notes, “You literally could not go anywhere in Germany without running into forced labor camps, P.O.W. camps, concentration camps,” he said. “They were everywhere.” Rather puts the lie to the claim that the majority of Germans “didn’t know” what was going on.

    I was at what was the Gestapo headquarters in Cologne last week. It was a small, 10 cell prision with over 1800 inscriptions on the walls written by prisoners. It was the most evil place I have ever been to. But in terms of what the Nazis did, it was nothing.

    Yet to the people who were tortured and/or exicuted there it was the worst thing that could possibly be done.

  2. Lynne says :

    Tiger Mike, it is just unbelievably evil, isn’t it? I believe the frightening aspect of the new research is that it reveals how widespread the evil was and refutes many of those who said that they were “unaware”. It was too conspicuous for that to be true in most cases.
    What really sickens me is that so many Europeans now “claim” to be concerned about the Palestinians, when they are not, and it’s just a way to try to destroy Israel, by reputation, if not in fact. These people need to look at their own past.

  3. ROSENBERG says :

    As I see it,” says DR. YEHUDAH Bauer, MAJOR HOLOCAUST HISTORIAN, “Holocaust survivors are only those people who were physically persecuted by the Nazis or their cohorts. This means people who lived in ghettos and concentration camps or compulsory labor frameworks, who hid or who joined the partisan ranks. I don’t mean to denigrate the suffering of people who suffered from race laws and anti-Semitic decree, or those who fled with nothing in their possession, but these are not Holocaust survivors.”I AGREE AND REJECT ANY OTHER DEFINTION. RABBI DR. BERNHARD ROSENBERG

    The Holocaust can no longer be about the brutality, the murder of 6 million, the murder of 1.5 million children, all the horrors that go along with it,”It needs to be about what these brave souls went through, what we can learn from it. We need to charter that into education about love, about caring. If we take from it only the horrors and the murders, that will destroy the relevance of the Holocaust.

    RABBI DR. BERNHARD ROSENBERG

    Well, according to a review of “The Gatekeepers” we now have evidence that modern Israel is just the same as the Nazi evil empire. So say the former shabak bosses. Incredible.

    And remember one important point, that the Holocaust was not only a German evil endeavour, it was an anti-Semite endeavour across all Europe!! Even the France acted against Jews, no to mention other countries in Europe!!

    And last but not least, remember that even the so-called Palestinians participated actively in the Holocaust, ACTIVELY recruiting Muslims all over Europe and participating themselves to help the Germans complete their final solution to wipe out Jews from the surface of this Earth!!!

    In particular, remember the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem (al Quds) Haj Amin al-Husseini who actively participated in the Holocaust of Jews all over Europe and he even tried to implement the final solution in the Palestine of the British Mandate.
    A simple Google search with the following keywords should give you ample information on this evil Palestinian: Haj Amin al-Husseini Nazi.
    —Read “Haj Amin al-Husseini and Nazi Racial Policies in the Arab World” at http://allanbogle.hubpages.com/hub/Husseininationalsocialism
    —Read “Relations between Nazi Germany and the Arab world – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia” at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Relations_between_Nazi_Germany_and_the_Arab_world

    As on one would never have dared asking the survivors of the Holocaust to live among former Nazis, the Israelis today in Israel should not forced to live among the Palestinians, a people who who actively participated in the Holocaust of the Jewish people!!! The Palestinians who have a second final solution, this time involving the killing of the Israeli Jews in Israel and the transformation of the Jewish state of Israel into a Muslim state, not only in the West Bank but also in Tel-Aviv, Haifa, you name it.

      Wipe — but you also have to remember that there were people like Khaled Abdul-Wahab who saved several Jewish families –more than two dozen people –by hiding them in his home and providing for them throughout the war. And there was Saide Arifova, a Muslim woman in the Ukraine who saved nearly 100 children and found them hiding places –the Nazis suspected her activities and arrested and tortured her. Abdol Hossein Sardari was the Iranian Schindler who saved nearly a thousand Jews by issuing them false documents, and there were dozens of Muslim families in Croatia who hid their Jewish neighbours. It is never a zero-sum game.

        Unfortunately, Yael, you will always find exceptions that are by definition extremely limited in number. It applies to every single people on Earth!

        During WWII, there were a few Nazis who saved Jews, does it mean that the Nazis in general did not commit their atrocities that they did? Or that the Nazis were not anti-Semites only because a tiny few saved Jews?!!!!
        The same reasoning applies to the Muslims in general and especially to those living in Israel, Gaza, and the West Bank!!! Especially when one remember the Nazi Palestinian born in Jerusalem Haj Amin al-Husseini!!!

        The truth is that it is not the exceptions that should be the indicator on whether or not the Israelis should allow Muslims to live in Israel, the West Bank and Gaza (and even Jordan!) but it is what the majority of the Muslims think of Israel and of the Israelis that should be the indicator. Not to mention the true fact that the Muslims of the Middle East have been the Nazis of the Middle East for the State of Israel!!!
        And the overwhelming majority of the Muslims (99% of them in fact!!!), including those living in Israel, the West Bank and Gaza, they all want the killing of all the Israeli Jews and the replacement of the Jewish State of Israel by a Muslim state, not only in the West Bank and Gaza (the first step to the second final solution, the first one was done by the Nazis!) but also all over Israel: in Tel-Aviv, Jerusalem, Haifa, Eilat, you name it.

        Many Israelis act like ostriches concerning the Muslims in Israel but you Yael you surely know better than that.

        I know that my ideas are considered extreme in some ways but the survival of the State of Israel is at stake.
        Moreover, you should read “Israel’s Demographic Destiny – By Aaron David Miller” at http://www.foreignpolicy.com/articles/2013/03/13/israels_demographic_destiny_palestine

        No matter how long it will take, 30 years or two centuries or even more, one day will come when the Muslims in Israel, the West Bank and Gaza will join forces with the Muslims outside Israel with the only goal of exterminating the Israeli Jews living in the State of Israel and destroy the State of Israel. Even if Israel would create another bogus Palestinian Muslim state in the West Bank and Gaza!!

        Who, with any concern for the State of Israel’s survival and a view LONG-TERM, who would want to ask the Muslims living in Israel, Gaza and the West Bank to stay in Israel and participate in the future of the State of Israel LONG-TERM?
        The problems is that Israelis are very SHORT-TERM in their thinking. And when the problems are too serious, Israelis tend to brush them under the carpet I could say or worse they act like ostriches!!

        Yael, you are like your mother in many ways, an idealist concerning the Muslims in Israel. I respect that because idealists many times make idealistic ideas become reality. We need them. But not in the case of Israel unfortunately, it is the exception where idealists will never be right LONG-TERM!!!

        Me, I am more a person who bases his ideas on facts and the facts concerning the Muslims in general and the Muslims living in Israel, the West Bank and Gaza are so against these Muslims that not a single Muslim state would have tolerated these Muslims to stay in Israel if the roles had been reversed and the State of Israel would have been a Muslim state and the Palestinians would have been Jews. In fact, in such a case, the Muslim state would have killed these Palestinians for the many actions that they committed against the State of Israel, not to mention against Israeli Jews!!!

        Take care, Yael. I hope you are well and I send you my best wishes for anything that happens to you.

    I wanted to find an appropriate heading to give you this link to an article and, to my surprise, the Holocaust is a very appropriate heading to qualify this article. Slowly, no matter the number of years, a second slow-motion Holocaust occurs and it is done this time not by the Nazis from Germany but by the Nazis from the Middle East, the Muslims of the Middle East against the Israeli Jews this time in Israel!!
    —Read “Baby Critically Hurt in Apparent Rock Terror – Defense/Security News” at http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/166238#.UUIKLlePP54

    Yes, be it with rocks thrown at Israeli Jews to kill them, be it with rockets, be it with suicide bombers, the Muslims of Israel, Gaza and the West Bank have been, are and will kill Israeli Jews only because they are Israeli and/or Jews.

    Oh, I hear some of you say, it is an isolated incident?!!! How many of such isolated murders (not matter the means used) have there been so far even before the creation of the State of Israel? Many thousands, a number that is so big that it is scary to think of it!! And yet, each time it happens, the Israeli Jews systematically catalog these murders as isolated incidents, EMPHASIZING THE FALSE FACT THAT ALL MUSLIMS ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE OF THESE MURDERS!!

    Like 9/11, all were Muslim terrorists but yet Muslims are not responsible many have been saying falsely. The same perverted idea, again it is Muslims who threw these rocks with the intent of killing and yet the same false argumentation will be used by saying it is an isolated incident and not all Muslims are responsible. When these murders happen many times, each time done by Muslims, yes in such a case the blame is all on Muslims in general, in this case on Muslims living in Israel, the West Bank and Gaza!!!
