Skip to comments.Hitchcock’s Masterpiece On The Holocaust Concentration Camps Is Finally Released
Posted on 01/19/2014 7:01:29 PM PST by LUV W
This is a link to a video of nearly an hour that depicts the horror that the British military discovered at Bergen-Belsen after the Nazis were defeted. It was partially directed by Alfred Hitchcock. It is very hard to watch, but I believe, necessary so as not to forget what man can do to his fellow man.
WOW. Thank you so much for posting this.
crsytal meth and nazis
And Leftists wonder why we “cling to our guns.”
There, fixed it.
You know that it was found in film cans and not in video tape cans? Wow, who knew?!
Times change. In 1948, the Holocaust was a fresh memory and there was little resistance in the West and even enthusiasm for the establishment of Israel. Today Holocaust deniers are invited to attend international “peace” conferences. What’s more the demographics of the United States is changing. The election of Obama and the changing US policy toward Israel is not happening in a political vacuum. There is far less support for Israel in today’s America.
ironic a progressive’s blog site would host video of death camps
Thank you and bookmark!
Thanks for posting
Of course the Holocaust was terribe and unconscionable, and everyone except the most ideologically warped can see that. However, Leftists never make the connection between big government, leading to authoritarian rule, and then to genocide. Leftists can say, today we have big government, but not worry, there is no genocide, so everything’s fine. By the time that Hitler consolidated power, and assumed control of the totalitarian state, the Holocaust was an inevitability. Only intervention before Hitler’s rise to power before or shortly afterwards coud have prevented the disaster.
Education should be directed to exposing the rise of tyranny. Otherwise, the public will only recognize the disaster after its too late. But, I guess that’s the point. Lull the public into believing that relatively speaking, things really aren’t all that bad.
Thanks for posting this. I started watching and will definitely complete it. Too bad the original soundtrack was lost.
I will finish watching tomorrow. Thanks for posting.
Man’s incredible inhumanity toward his fellow man never fails to deeply sadden me.
I’ve often wondered how perpetrators of such things justify it to themselves so they can go on living.
Everyone who visits Europe needs to visit Auschwitz. It was heart-wrenching. I stood at the entrance of one room and just cried until my priest came over and talked with me.
At that time I was walking with a cane and had not gone through a hip replacement. The room was filled with canes, crutches, prostheses, etc. from people who had been killed.
First They Came for the Jews
First they came for the Jews
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the Communists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for me
and there was no one left
to speak out for me.
~Pastor Martin Niemöller
Community and individuality are not opposites. People cannot survive on their own. When the odds are stacked against you, you must rally with the oppressed and hated.
When a growing oppressive regime is taking hold, you must act, otherwise you will soon face your enemy alone and hopeless.
Strength of community is a strength as much as individualism, as long you are willing to face weaknesses in your own community. Ignoring slacking values will mean that you will be rallied against by those you oppress.
Niemöller affirms we must rally against unhealthy organized regimes. We must also stay vigilant with those that appear to be good natured, as all organisation attracts corruption. Niemöller also warns us that if it is you who are corrupt, then you will face a stronger combined force of foe!
Disturbing and depressing. I almost wish I hadn’t forced myself to watch all of this, but now I am of the opinion that every person in this country should be forced to watch it and understand what the end results of the leftist agenda is all about, IMO.
This reminds me of Communism and Islam. To think we have one in the White house makes me shudder.
I visited Dachau. It was permeated with evil. I’ll never forget it...the crematoriums and the gas houses.....
I posted this on Facebook, I have to wonder how many people took the time to watch it.
I did, too...and I did just watch the whole thing. I might not sleep tonight. :\
Heed the warning? Within a couple of years Stalin had began an extermination program that made this look like a picnic, and nobody cared. Mao managed to outdo Stalin and look how much business we do with China. Meanwhile the Soviets will be hosting the next Olympics. The only reason we hear about Germany is because they lost. Society hasn't learned a thing except how to conveniently forget.
Bump for later
bump for later.
Old technology, new terminology. It’s all video now. Just like we’d call the sound on an antique phonograph record, audio.
The difference is that the Nazis had the audacity to actually film their atrocities, they took so much pride in it, they wanted to chronicle it for their own posterity.
Bookmarked for later.
Memmory is for strangers. The way things are being teached in the schools and colleges this will not be seen by the students.
I watched it all. Very painful. It reinforces my belief that the entire German population knew what was going on. There were hundreds of camps. The tears of the locals in this film, in my opinion, were only because they were caught red handed and their ghoulish pleasure was ending.
Don’t forget the Abortion clinics in the USA. over 40 million unborn killed for the cause of the left and the demonkrats.
PBS broadcast this under the title of “Memories of the Camps” maybe a dozen or so years ago. I made a copy on video tape and showed it to my eighth-grade history classes for many years. I told them they were going to visit hell. The English teacher had them reading “The Diary of Anne Frank” at about the same time. She died at Bergen-Belsen about a month before the Brits liberated the camp. Her last moments in this world are what you see in this film. I figured my students would live most of their lives after the living memory of the Holocaust was over and they needed to remember what had happened. Every kidno matter how “cool”was moved by what he or she saw in this film.
Add to the list,
History repeats itself. And every time it does, the price goes up.

You beat me to it. The filming is what really ratcheted things up.imho
