  • How to Assist Evil

    "Engineering Evil" is a documentary recently shown on the Military History channel. It's a story of Nazi Germany's murder campaign before and during World War II. According to some estimates, 16 million Jews and other people died at the hands of Nazis (http://tinyurl.com/6duny9). Though the Holocaust ranks high among the great human tragedies, most people never consider the most important question: How did Adolf Hitler and the Nazis gain the power that they needed to commit such horror? Focusing solely on the evil of the Holocaust won't get us very far toward the goal of the Jewish slogan "Never Again."...

    Catholic World Report ^ | April 3, 2014 | Thomas L. McDonald
    Pope John XXIII is pictured in this undated photo. (CNS photo) The press called him a caretaker pope. Elected on October 28, 1958, at the age of 77, he was expected to warm the Chair of Peter for a few years without making any great waves. They could hardly have been more wrong. The people called him Good Pope John because of his genial nature, and few popes have been more loved. His successor, Paul VI, hailed him as “an incomparable pope.” But the Jews had a special relationship with John XXIII, and it is their love for him...

    American Thinker ^ | 3-31-14 | Bruce Walker
    In a recent interview, Oliver Stone, defender of Marxist thugs, complained that Jewish domination of the media prevents Americans from putting the Holocaust in context. Stone also opined that Hitler was the product of industrialists and that the Nazi invasion of Russia caused more deaths than the Holocaust. In one fell swoop, Stone revealed the Orwellian thought control that is the black heart of leftism. The Holocaust was a crime of almost unimaginable human suffering, and if Stones remarks were intended to remind us that Polish Catholics and Gypsies, particularly, suffered genocide at Nazi hands as well, then perhaps Stone...

    Exactly 70 years ago on February 24, 1942 19-year-old David Stoliar terrifyingly clung to bobbing debris in the Black Sea. At first he heard screams in the frigid waters but the voices died down. It eventually emerged that Stoliar was the sole survivor of the Struma, an un-seaworthy vessel chuck-full of frantic Jewish refugees. World War II was already in fever pitch. Against the enormity of the then-unfolding Holocaust, the loss at sea of 768 Jewish lives (103 of them babies and children) was at most blithely overlooked as a marginal annotation. Moreover, although these Jews fled the...

    LONDON (AP) Alice Herz-Sommer, believed to be the oldest Holocaust survivor, died at age 110 on Sunday, a family member said. The accomplished pianist's death came just a week before her extraordinary story of surviving two years in a Nazi prison camp through devotion to music and her son is up for an Oscar. Herz-Sommer died in a hospital after being admitted Friday with health problems, daughter-in-law Genevieve Sommer said. "We all came to believe that she would just never die," said Frederic Bohbot, a producer of the documentary "The Lady in Number 6: Music Saved My Life." ''There...

SNCF runs some of the fastest and most efficient lines in the world but has a dark history which saw it transport thousands of Jews to their deaths in German concentration camps. Now senators in the US state of Maryland have proposed a bill which would make it illegal for the French to apply for prestige projects.

    When the White House scribblers were putting the finishing touches on the State of the Union address, President Obama took a moment to commemorate memory. Monday was International Holocaust Remembrance Day, the 69th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, the most notorious of Hitler's death camps. "Each year on this day," he said, "the world comes together to commemorate a barbaric crime unique in human history." But not quite the whole world. Anti-Semitism thrives in the Middle East, where certain politicians vie to see who can say the ugliest things about Jews, and such sentiment is surging in Europe. Bloody...

    On the surface, it is very moving to see half of the members of Knesset at Auschwitz marking International Holocaust Remembrance Day. But in a larger sense, it is not at all clear why this is necessary. The Jewish people have Yom HaShoah VHagevura, our own national day of mourning for the genocide of our people in Europe. More importantly, we carry the legacy of the Holocaust inside of us. Every day, at some level, we experience the ulcerative loss of a third of the Jewish people in the hell of Europe, because we feel the hollow absence of the...

    Alfred Hitchcock's lost documentary about the horrors of the Holocaust is scheduled to be screened in full for the first time. The legendary moviemaker created the documentary using footage filmed during the liberation of Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in Germany in 1945, and Hitchcock was reportedly so traumatized by the shocking scenes, he took a week off work to recover. The project, originally titled Memory of the Camps, was eventually shelved, and the film reels were given to the Imperial War Museum in London. Some of the documentary was later cobbled back together and an incomplete version was screened at the...

    On July 10, 1941, half the residents of Jedwabne, a Polish village 85 miles northeast of Warsaw, murdered the other half. The mob, led by the mayor, were Catholics; their 1,600 victims were Jewish, slaughtered over several nightmarish hours with bats, knives, rifles and other improvised weapons. Those who survived the massacre were then rounded up in a barn donated by a local farmer, which was then set ablaze. A plaque erected at the site blamed Nazis for the massacre, but, in fact, Nazis had only authorized it. Locals walked by the plaque for half a century, knowing the truth,...

"In principle, we and I condemn the massacre carried out by the Nazis in the World War II," Rouhani told Charlie Rose.

The remark came in response to Amanpours question if he accepted that the Holocaust occurred. "I am not a historian and when it comes to speaking of the dimensions of the Holocaust it is the historians that should reflect," he said. "But in general I can tell you that any crime that happens in history against humanity, including the crime the...

But Rouhani went on to take a swipe against Irans archfoe Israel, which was founded after World War Two as a Jewish state in part of what had been British-mandate Palestine. This does not mean that on the other hand you can say Nazis committed crimes against a group, now therefore they must usurp the land of another group and occupy it, he said. This...

"President [Mahmoud] Ahmadeinejad said that the Holocaust is a myth," said Curry, wearing a head scarf. "Do you agree?"

    The Mind Renewed ^ | 9/13/13 | Dr. Julian Charles
    We are joined by Pastor Mark Musser, author of the book Nazi Oaks : The Green Sacrifice of the Judeo-Christian Worldview in the Holocaust, who explains how the worldview of the Nazis, which led to the abominations of the Holocaust, was deeply-rooted in the ecological undercurrents of the anti-Semitism, anti-theism, and anti-humanism of the early German green movement. Gathering together the strands of a bewildering number of influences, from Romanticism to existentialism and Social Darwinism, this ecology served to rationalise (in their eyes) and invigorate their racist and eugenicist 'purification' of land and people ...

    Hitler's ghost was roaming about Europe until 1970 Posted on Saturday, May 07 @ 18:08:37 CDT His mortal remains were reburied 8 times and eventually destroyed by fire Adolf Hitler put down his own funeral arrangements back in 1938 as he dreamt of the world domination and his worldwide glory. He wished to be laid to rest in the city of Lintz, in a giant burial vault of the National Socialist Party. A golden sepulcher decorated with gems from the Ural Mountains should have been installed in the center of the vault. A badly charred corpse of Hitler was found...
  • Did 'executed' Nazi criminal in Schindler's List escape justice?

    'Revelations about the execution of a notorious Nazi war criminal, immortalised in Schindler's List, have raised questions about how the mass murderer died and whether he was even hanged at all. For decades Amon Goeth, who was responsible for the deaths of tens of thousands of Jews and Poles during World War Two, was believed to have been filmed being executed in 1946. A black and white video shows executioners twice botching a hanging before he was eventually killed. But historians claim in a new National Geographic documentary called Bloody Tales that the video was from 1947 and shows Dr...

    STOCKHOLM (AP) President Barack Obama is drawing parallels between the actions of a Swedish diplomat who saved Jews during the Holocaust and the action he wants the world to take to help Syria's people. On his first presidential visit to Sweden, Obama said Raoul Wallenberg's actions are a reminder "of our power not simply to bear witness, but also to act."(continued)
  • Striving to Preserve the Rich Heritage of Yiddish

    As the number of Yiddish speakers declines, those who love the language look for ways to ensure its survival.In the misery of a Jewish ghetto in German-occupied Poland, Jack Lewin remembers, the books helped him survive. Reading the Yiddish words late into the night, Lewin could forget the hunger that sometimes brought him to tears. "I lived with the characters of the books," he says in his home near Wilshire Boulevard, his green-and-gray eyes distant with memory. Maybe it was those books that made it possible for him and the others to be human after Auschwitz. Now he traces his...

    BUDAPEST, Hungary -- What do you do when you learn you are not the person you thought you were, when you learn you are the very thing you hated? It was a question Csanad Szegedi was confronted with -- one that led to a remarkable transformation. Szegedi was once a rising star in Hungary's third largest and most controversial political parties, Jobbik. Jobbik has been labeled fascist and anti-Semitic. Its leader once asked for a list of all the Jews in Hungarian government. And Szegedi, still in his 20s, was on a trajectory to lead the party someday. "I joined...

    Over the weekend a memorial was held at the Treblinka concentration camp to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the 1943 uprising at the camp. Roughly 875,000 people were murdered in Treblinka during the Holocaust, nearly all of them Jews. In 1943 prisoners rebelled. While most were killed, several hundred managed to escape, and the uprising damaged the camp badly enough to slow the mass murder at the site. Deputy Minister of Education Avi Wortzman represented Israel at the ceremony. In his speech, he spoke about the horror of the Holocaust, and also replied to an Arab-Israeli MKs recent claim, in...
  • Writer compares black incarceration to Jewish Holocaust

    Your Black World ^ | Dr. Boyce Watkins
    "Were being locked away in a mass incarceration epidemic that is as bad as the Jewish holocaust." Dr. Boyce Watkins, in a commentary criticizing rap star Jay-Z for his disrespect of Harry Belafonte, made the above remark when lambasting Jay-Z for not doing more for the black community. I am sickened that someone can compare the attempted extermination of an entire group of people to the consequences of criminal actions leading to imprisonment. Not a soul commented on that passage via the website (which I stumbled across through a Facebook "friend.")
