For an 89 year old Jew the idea to deny the holocaust, is as the equivalent of a person to deny the existence of the moon,because it disappears from sight on occasion, or appears different to the naked eye at different times. The moon to them is an illusion. I was born in Canada and my only experience of the holocaust is through the words of relatives of the murdered who may have actually been there, or cannot explain the disappearance of some people. Imagine Jews throughout the world, in secret, developing the thesis the Jews were murdered, then hiding the murdered with new identities. Plain and simply preposterous but anything is possible with Jews , they are so clever!!

As time passes there will be more efforts to say that Jews use the holocaust to advance their own interests or the interests of Israel. The deniers are born anti-Semites taught by their parents,or people with a political agenda. The holocaust has become a symbol of killing not particular to Jewish people only. This can be proven as some Jihadist deny a holocaust happened and then  state that they will create a new holocaust for Jews .

I am reading an article by Robert Rozett who examined the letters by Sammy, a Jewish American soldiers who liberated the death camps and he writes , on a street in the town of Dachau just outside the camp they came upon a train filled with 5,000 dead bodies of people, amoung them women and children who had nearly starved to death. It became known as the Dachau Death Train, and had travelled from Buchwald to Dachau but because of bombing of the tracks could not reach Dachau. It travelled for 3 weeks without food and water and the Germans machine-gunned the people as the train could go no further. The letters were written 2 days after the event and were unsolicited testimony, free of bias. Jake from Brooklyn wrote, if you had any doubt about the authenticity of the atrocity stories, you can remove it right now.

Holocaust denial is a political weapon used by anti-Semites and opponents of the state of Israel because its existence breeds sympathy from the uncommitted  people of the world who are in the majority.

“Europe against the Jews” 1880-1945- is a tell all book by Gotz Aly, a German national who completes the story of why the holocaust ,under its original aim to wipe out the Jewish people in Europe, was so successful until the end of the second world war. Before, during and after the first world war there was no lack of anti-Semites in Europe. I am not going to name the counties who took part in this misadventure. I don`t have to, as all the nations of Europe were in one way or the other accomplices except Denmark completely innocent, because they too took all their Jews and placed them in Sweden which was neutral in the war and not available to the German army and Belgium where the job was only half-done as bankers, notaries and judges who had information about the accounts and property  of Jews refused to be complicit in the actions taken by the German army against the Jewish people . England was an accomplice ,in that Jewish refugees fleeing from the persecution of Jews in Europe in all of the 19th century, and before the second world war refused to take in Jewish refugees and as well banned Jews from entering Palestine .France after they surrendered and the Vichy govt of unoccupied France was formed was very active in helping round up the Jews . I should mention that the Americans were guilty as well. Yes, Franklin Delano Roosevelt the American president before and during the second world war banned Jews from emigrating to  the North American bastion of freedom. And to this day American Jews vote Democrat because of this so-called friend.

Hitler went after the Jews because he knew anti-Semitism was common all over Europe. He did not have to produce anti-Semitism , it was there waiting to be used for his desire to make Germany a powerful country. If he had continued killing Jews there was no problem in Europe. He went wrong by invading Russia which was just too much for the German army in too short a period of time. With Russia and the U.S. as enemies, and with the Americans involved in invading Europe, the two front situation brought him down. In 1939, 9,855,500 lived in Europe. By 1945 that number was 3,833,000. In the parts of Europe under German control, some 1,4million Jews survived the Holocaust. Between 1948 and 1951, 715,ooo European Jews left for Israel, while 120,000 emigrated to North America. Six years after the end of the second world war more than half of the Jews who had escaped the German machinery  of murder and lived outside the Soviet Union voluntarily left Europe


How was this complicated job of wiping out a people accomplished  nearly so completely. With the help of many Europeans, but not all. I would be derelict in writing this article if I did not mention that some Europeans risked their own lives by hiding Jews as Anne Frank was hidden in the Nederland’s .The German army came in with some soldiers given the job of finding Jews,  and confiscating their property. Except when these European citizens of Jewish heritage had a Jewish sounding name, how to find the Jews? It was accomplished with the help of the Europeans who found out if the Jews were named their properties and assets were put up for auction and they could take over the assets of the Jews headed for concentration camps and eventual death. I also should mention that the Europeans who named the Jews were probably not aware of the dire consequences of their actions or if aware did not care.With so many anti-Semites in Europe and the possibility of taking over the Jewish properties , the incentives were there and acted upon. When the lucky Jews who survived the death camps came back to redeem their stolen assets it goes without saying they did not face a happy welcoming.

  • So very well written and so extremely relevant in today’s world.
    Had there been an Israel in those years there wouldn’t have been 6 million murdered.
    Like no other country at that time, Israel’s doors would have been open to every Jew!
    In today’s world… without an Israel… no Jew is safe.

    • Thank you. We are headed in the same direction. What is missing is a sicko like Hitler Fran– Europe to-day is similar to Europe in the 30`s, but the Jews do nothing. We need Israel very much
