    BBC ^ | 7/15
    A German court has convicted a 94-year-old former guard at the Nazi death camp at Auschwitz of being an accessory to the murder of at least 300,000 Jews.Oskar Groening, known as the "book-keeper of Auschwitz", was sentenced to four years in prison. He was responsible for counting the belongings confiscated from prisoners and had admitted "moral guilt". His lawyers said he did not facilitate genocide, but prosecutors argued that he had helped the camp run smoothly. Many observers have questioned whether Groening will ultimately be sent to jail, given his advanced age. He is expected to be one of the...

    Pope Francis is rapidly convincing me that he is not just a leftist, but a dope. Speaking to a group of young people in Turin, he departed from his script and launched into a rambling denunciation of, among others, arms manufacturers: “It makes me think of … people, managers, businessmen who call themselves Christian and they manufacture weapons. That leads to a bit a distrust, doesn’t it?” he said to applause. He also criticized those who invest in weapons industries, saying “duplicity is the currency of today … they say one thing and do another.” We are a long way...

    A large international conference of Holocaust deniers recently took place in the heart of London, Britain's Daily Mail reported on Saturday. "This is the biggest and most significant meeting of Holocaust deniers that Britain has ever seen. It is a very worrying development," the paper quoted Gerry Gable, an expert on the extreme Right who aided the news outlet's undercover investigation of the event, as saying. The event was held under a veil of secrecy at London's Grosvenor Hotel in a room draped with the Union Flag. A spokesman for the hotel said the room booking was made online and...

Klara Marcus, 100, from the town of Sighetu Marmatiej in the northern Romanian county of Maramures was captured in 1944 and sent to the infamous Nazi death camp Auschwitz in southern Poland. Then aged 30, she was forced to strip naked along with hundreds of other women and marched into the gas chamber. She said: "I was chosen towards the end of the day with a large group of other women and we were made ready for the gas...

I suspect that an entire generation or two born after that year, 70 years ago, may have little or no knowledge of what Auschwitz was. It was a Nazi death camp...

Witnesses to unfathomable depths of human savagery, these are among the last occupants of history’s most infamous slaughterhouse.

    Treasury Secretary Jack Lew will represent the United States at the 70th anniversary ceremony for the liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp on Tuesday—rather than President Barack Obama or Vice President Joe Biden—while other countries are slated to send their heads of state. Tuesday’s ceremony will likely be the last major anniversary where a significant number of survivors of the Nazi camp are present. About 300 are expected to attend, and most of them are in their 90s or older than 100. Nazi authorities killed 1.1 million people at the camp, mostly Jews, which was liberated by the Soviet army...

Protests surrounded the trip, and especially Distelmans himself. The German publication Der Spiegel described the trip this way: That evening, the group checks into the Hilton Garden Inn Hotel.

So says the guide, Rabbi Rafi Ostroff, who is also the head of the Etzion Bloc Religious Council. Ani Ma'amin has several tunes, one of which was composed by a Hassidic rabbi in the cattle cars en route to the Nazi concentration camps. The song was then adopted by other...

Shimon Samuels of the Simon Wiesenthal Centre called Prof Distelmans’s Auschwitz initiative “a travesty”. “The connection he’s making is perverse. He has to stand down, cancel the trip and make a declaration condemning the so-called ‘mercy euthanasia’ practised by the Nazis,” he said. Mr Samuels added that if the trip was simply a badly thought-out idea, the professor should at least admit he made a mistake. Prof...

    (AFP) - The city of Brussels officially recognized Sunday its complicity in the deportation of thousands of Jews to Nazi death camps during World War II. At a ceremony attended by Israel's ambassador and Belgian Deputy Prime Minister Joelle Milquet, Brussels mayor Freddy Thielemans acknowledged the key role the city's register of Jews played in raids that sent thousands to death camps. "Without this register of Jews, the progressive arrests and the raid of September 1942 would never have had the same impact in Brussels," Thielemans said, quoted by Belga news agency. Approximately 5,640 names were registered. On the other...
  • Volunteer For Auschwitz Among Polish War Heroes Buried In Mass Grave By Poland's Communist Regime

    Man who volunteered for Auschwitz among war heroes Poland searching for in mass grave WARSAW, Poland - It could hardly have been a riskier mission: infiltrate Auschwitz to chronicle Nazi atrocities. Witold Pilecki survived nearly three years as an inmate in the death camp, managing to smuggle out word of executions before making a daring escape. But the Polish resistance hero was crushed by the post-war communist regime — tried on trumped-up charges and executed. Six decades on, Poland hopes Pilecki's remains will be identified among the entangled skeletons and shattered skulls of resistance fighters being excavated from a mass...

    Hamas Blasts PA Official's Auschwitz Visit Thursday, August 02, 2012 By Tzippe Barrow Christian Broadcasting Network JERUSALEM, Israel -- Maybe if he had to do it all over again, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas' advisor for Christian affairs would not visit the Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland. Perhaps Ziad al-Bandak would think about the potential backlash for touring the gas chambers and crematorium, laying a wreath and lighting a memorial candle in remembrance of the 1.5 million who died there. But it's too late now. It's not clear why al-Bandak made the trip since many Palestinians and Islamists deny the Holocaust...

    Unidentified Spanish newspaper | January 15 2011 | Sebastian Vilar Rodrigez
    Here's an interesting viewpoint. The following is a copy of an article written by Spanish writer Sebastian Vilar Rodrigez and published in a Spanish newspaper on Jan. 15 2011. It doesn't take much imagination to extrapolate the message to the rest of Europe — and possibly to the rest of the world. "EUROPEAN LIFE DIED IN AUSCHWITZ" By Sebastian Vilar Rodrigez I walked down the street in Barcelona and suddenly discovered a terrible truth — Europe died in Auschwitz ... We killed six million Jews and replaced them with 20 million Muslims. In Auschwitz we burned a culture, thought, creativity,...

    Jerzy Bielecki, the Polish inmate who helped his Jewish girlfriend escape from Auschwitz in 1944, has died aged 90..at his home in Nowy Targ, southern Poland. In July 1944, the 23-year-old Bielecki used his relatively privileged position as a German-speaking Catholic Polish inmate of Auschwitz to orchestrate the daring rescue of his Jewish girlfriend, Cyla Cybulska. He secretly acquired a complete SS uniform and pass from a fellow Pole working at a uniform warehouse. Pretending to take a Jewish inmate out of the camp for interrogation, he led Cybulska to a side gate, where a sleepy SS officer let them...

    Episode three of the hard hitting new series on youtube which shows how socialized medicine and gun control lead to genocidal tyrannies that destroy God given rights. In this episode featuring scenes from Psychiatry an Industry of Death, we see healthcare in Germany and how psychiatrists using the false science of eugenics contributed to the holocaust and how liberals intimidated the Nuremberg Judges to spare several violent nazi doctors from their just rewards. We then go inside a universal healthcare facility to see what is in store for undesirables...

    A former British soldier and prisoner of war has recalled the horror he felt after swapping uniforms with a Dutch Jew - and breaking into Auschwitz. Denis Avey, 92, was captured during World War II and sent to the IG Farben plant, known as Auschwitz III, where the deadly gas was produced. But when Mr Avey was told about the mass killings and smelled the horrendous stench from nearby crematoriums he vowed to witness the atrocities for himself. The brave soldier bribed guards with cigarettes and swapped uniforms with a Dutch Jew who was roughly the same height. With the...

    If you needed any more proof of WikiLeaks’ extremist agenda, look no further than Israel Shamir, the Holocaust denier who is in charge of distributing the organization’s documents to the Russian media. The involvement of Shamir, who also supports Ahmadinejad and refers to Palestinian terrorists as “martyrs,” should put to rest any doubt that WikiLeaks’ rhetoric about transparency is just a cloak for its anti-American and anti-Western agenda. As Michael C. Moynihan exposed, Shamir has a long track record of anti-Semitism, including Holocaust denial. Shamir described Auschwitz as “an internment facility, attended by the Red Cross (as opposed to the...
