headline: "Jews in Hungary Fear Annihilation (Levy) – 10"

This NY Times report during the war is as explicit as anyone could expect, including descriptions of mass murders in gas chambers (a typo on the beginning year, should be: 1941) and a remarkable estimate of five & a half million Jews murdered so far.

The report from Hungary itself is somewhat inaccurate.
One million is roughly the total of pre-war Hungarian Jews, of whom around 250,000 survived the war.
Of the remainder, 440,000 are "now" being shipped to Auschwitz and of those 90% will be immediately gassed.
The fate of the remainder is not clear, but, for example, 42,000 Hungarian Jewish forced laborers died on the Russian front in 1942-43.

Yet, somehow, no one knew until western allies actually went inside the camps with cameras a year from now.

Dang, $110 for hand-sewn, made-to-measure wool bathrobes. It’s the hottest May on record; what do you need a wool bathrobe for, anyway?

The Irony just hit me: Hitler wanted to kill everyone from the Eastern German border to past Moscow and take over the land for Germany. The Soviets eventually took over that land and killed a lot of locals along the way.

Sorry for the delay responding.
First Wikipedia:

And here is that 60 minutes interview with Steve Kroft, December 1998:

Of course, (now BJK speaking), whoever would concern themselves with George Soros Holocaust past, when the real threat to our republic is those billionaire Koke brothers and their conservative causes! </sarc>

Glenn Beck versus George Soros.

KROFT: (Voiceover) '…by–by posing as a Christian.'

Did he ever step inside a church during that time? Why not say …by–by posing as a Gentile?

That's one of those things the Left continually does to separate itself from National Socialism and the Holocaust.

Thanks. I still don’t understand how pure water increases horsepower.

Thanks. I still don’t understand how pure water increases horsepower.

When the engine is heavily loaded and running at full power, injecting water into the fuel-air mixture, or directly into the cylinder cools the combustion chamber. A cooler combustion chamber permits a denser fuel-air mix and can reduce knocking.

My understanding of water injection is that it doesn't provide much of a benefit at normal power settings.

I don’t understand the reference to Polish murder camps set up in 1419. I’m not aware of anything like that in medieval Polish history. Is it a typo for 1941?

Very interesting story. It’s obvious that from an early age he didn’t give a damn about anyone or anything but himself.

I asumed it was a dyslectic typesetter.

That makes sense. Thanks

The methanol-water injection operates on the same principle as water injection except the alcohol is combustible and acts like anti-freeze which is probably a bonus at 25K feet above northern Europe in January. I believe the methanol-water mix generally contains a small amount of lubricating oil.
