        Your response to the words of compassion from others reveals that you are scared and angry.
        I pray that your life has not been of such a brutal nature that you can not feel or voice compassion for others yourself. If it has been than I am very sorry for your pain and the hurt and fear you feel and express to others.
        So many folks are seeing for the very first time in their lives the cruelty and inhumanity of pure evil and wickedness and hearing their compassion speaks volumes for their character and their hearts. These folks are those that willdo something in their lifetime to make a difference and to help others and to spread the word and their knowledge of what did in fact happen and no excuse can be made for it.
        I am praying for you Anonymous.It takes ALL peoples to know the truth to stop the lies being told concerning the Holocaust and the reaity of what did in fact happen.There will come a time when you will have to trust someone and to conquer fear.
        It isn’t always easy when one has been deeply hurt which I feel you have been and are hurt.
        There is more inside you that makes you valuable as a person and I Pray that you will begin to see this and not hate others.

      they cant help that there like that its all becuse one man has 0 tollorince for jewish people and all of them are inisant

      • jess says:

        um i know the main thing was jews but there were others that were killed

      • penei says:

        They cant help that THEY’RE like that. IT’S all BECAUSE one man has 0 TOLERANCE for Jewish people, and all of them are INNOCENT.

        Not trying to be mean, but it’s hard to consider or think about someone’s opinion when the grammar is really bad. I mean, everyone makes typos, but having a lot makes it really disracting and stuff…. just a tip for the future. (not meaning to be rude in anyway)

        have you not learnt about the holocaust before?
        the germans wouldn’t feed them and got them to do all sorts of work for them and they took them away from their homes and jobs to put them in these camps because they convinced the whole country and more that they were horrible people, so bad that they werent even people at all, that they were so low that it wouldn’t even matter if they were all gone.

      • Anonymous says:

        Correction on the German bit- It wasn’t the germans as a nation, it was the Nazi’s and Hitler. A nation will lead whoever dictates them- The innocent people of Germany and some of the soldiers were shown the concentration camps and were absolutely horrified ;.; Really nasty stuff.

        All in all, Hitler = prick

      • random says:

        correction to whoever said it was the only the Nazis(i believe it was Anonymous). no offense, but you are wrong. All the Germans knew what was happening, yet they said nothing. and they heard the screams of the children being burnt, alive- yet they did nothing. There were actually many cases of German suffering from insanity after the camps were liberated and the Allies invaded, and they were suffering from insanity from the tremendous guilt, because it was said they could still see the people being murdered, and hear the children scream, yet they did nothing. So, the people were also at fault in a way too

        isaw the movie so sad

      • annymous says:

        i am learin bout that too half of my teachers family was killed because of fucking hitler she only has 1 cuz a mother and father and a bro

      • Zeph says:

        To Random..

        You are missing the whole point. More then Half of Germans was in the army..Which the army was under Hitler’s command. Meaning, they still served this “sick” leader.
        And another thing..If Germans were so “against” the killing of Jews..Hitler wouldn’t been in power..Nor would he gotten a 90% approval rate from Germans..
        Hitler raised to power, because he looked to blame Jews for all the “issues” that the world was in.

        And the other thing..Not only did Germans be the one to spit onto Jews, but aswell, the whole world did.
        Yes, some countries..Very few countries, ever tried to save Jews..But more then all.. The world looked down..On Jews.

        And the sad part about everything, was that even the allies, that went to fight Germany, looked down apon Jews, they turned millions of Jews back to Germany..As did America turned down more then half the Jews that did try to leave Germany.

        Before you start posting shit like you understand what they went thru, and think you know every dam bit about what happen, at least, try and use Wiki…(I used books made by Historicist and survivors)

        And for one dam sure thing, if you aren’t one of the survivors, then you have no right in God’s name, to say that you understand how they felt.

        And another correction, German’s did feed the Jews..As the book “Night” says that the whole 10000+ inmates was feed lunch and a small dinner. But in all..They really had a half of a serving of food a day…

        And not all Jew inmates wore striped pyjamas.. Most went with a sort of “jeans” and a “button-up shirt”…Or most, nothing.

        And back to the “Hitler was a mad man”..
        Hitler wasn’t really a mad man..He did what he did to gain favor of his men, and his people. But he did, in all, be the coward, and looked at the Jews for blame of Germany’s mistakes, and the world’s mistake…
        And to finish this up, read about how the Jews were seen pre-war.. You will see, that Jews were still looked down apon..

        In all, Hitler did what any other man or women would do. Blame someone else.
        As we all are humans, we look for others to take blame for our own self need.

        ~Act before you have the second thought, as always, the second thought is what makes you less of a man~

      • Hadiyah says:

        I completely agree… i just think of these people and what they went through… their families… the survivors… and even the people of Germany that had no idea that this was going on… i just look at pictures like this and think their lives were cut oh so short by someone who thought he knew what was right… they are in a better place now… and the families are reunited… we all remember them (whoever they all may be)… and know that they suffered more than need be just because they were Jewish… I just think when i look at these pictures that i never want to judge anybody for any difference.. the holocaust is just an extreme example of predujice… so sad that people are like that even today….

      • Anonymous says:

        such lies, no and no you are wrong, the US bailed all of the victims out from the camps as soon as possible. All people have the same rights, and the people of the usa gave their lives to stop the killing. You should be ashamed of the poison you spew. Stop slamming the only country that STOPPED the holocaust, and thank them.

    This is the most disgusting display of hatred towards any race that has turned up throughout history. People who doubt that there was a holocaust need to look at these pictures, and accept the facts. Hitler was a horrible person, killed many innocent people, and deserved to die a painful death, not his quick suicide that he provided for himself. I don’t even think Hitler was capable of human emotions, for if he was, he wouldn’t be able to subject these innocent people to such pure hatred, by the mangling of their bodies, the malnourishment, and the imminent death. The world is a better place without Adolph Hitler.

    Okay, making this anonymous mostly cause a lot of people would be angry, but hear me out. Without Hitler, we’d be dying 20 years earlier than we are today. As bad as it is, he managed to achieve 100 years future technology which increased life span. I’m not saying what he did was right, but there was at least one good outcome. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely hate what he did, but at the same time am a little grateful for his advancements… does that make me a bad person?

  52. santitafarella says:

    Pauline:

    You ask: Where was God?

    The Holocaust is Exhibit A for the problem of evil and the notion that prayer doesn’t work. Obviously, the Jews prayed for deliverance. If God didn’t answer them, why would he answer us today?

    One of the sobering things that is suggested by the Holocaust is that humanity is forsaken and on its own.

    • Holocaust Jew says:

      Or maybe this is only a relative extreme evil as it pertains to our human minds. In order for their to be a much greater good there needs to be a great evil, it’s one of those paradoxes or you wouldn’t be able to understand good or evil, let alone use free will to choose between the two. Perhaps they will be rewarded in heaven for their prayers and devotion unto the end, unlike people like you who rely on short-sighted logic to come to teenage-conclusions.

      • Anne says:

        Dear Pauline, I know u feel so angry because me 2. And I agree with u.. u absolutely right, WE MUST NOT LET THIS HAPPEN AGAIN. And I things WE ALL Pauline. WE ALL SO SORRY BECAUSE COULDN’T HELP OR DID NOT DOING SOMETHING, SO HOLOCAUST TRAGEDY NEVER HAPPEN. But if u ask where was God, the answer is GOD ALWAYS THERE Pauline. And ONLY GOD WHO KNOWS WHAT THE BESTING 4 ALL PEOPLES IN THIS WORLD. Too many things we cant understand, BUT WE MUST TRUST GOD. As a Christians followers, my answer ” AND WE KNOW THAT ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD TO THOSE WHO LOVE GOD, TO THOSE WHO ARE CALLED ACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSE ” (ROMANS 8:28). And BECAUSE THE POWER OF GOD, USA AND ENGLAND CAN WIN in WORLD WAR I AND II, and Hitler and NAZI are loser.. Evil is LOSER. NOT BECAUSE OF MAN.

    You sound like you deny that the Holocaust occurred. Am I reading too much into your comment? Could I ask you if you agree or disagree with these three propositions:

    1. Approximately 6 million Jews died in the Holocaust.
    2. In a substantial number of cases (such as at Auschwitz) gas was used on Jews as a means of extermination.
    3. The Nazi government had an eliminationist policy toward Jews, either killing the adult healthy by forced labor or killing forthwith the unhealthy, the old, and the sick.

    @Santi….My opinion of / belief in the verb holocaust turned noun Holocaust will remain mine and mine alone; as it is basically irrelevant to the “fact correcting” posts that I have made at this site. To take the moral high ground is one thing; to take the moral high ground because it is the politically correct thing to do is another. Fantasy is easily conjured in an uneducated mind; facts however, are supported by evidence. If you are truly interested in discovering the facts and weeding out the fantasy, you will find it a necessity to dance with the devil. There are a host of sites out there that support an alternate (revised) view. Fantasy is easy on the brain, requires little effort. Systematic fact gathering is hard work and requires dedication and effort…Is it no wonder that fantasy usually prevails…Good luck.

    • Samantha Webber says:

      Hey are you okay? See the problem with people like you is that you automatically assume and refuse to hear the truth… So some guy says he thinks there’s another story. I KNOW the Holocaust is real, but that doesn’t mean I assume anybody who doubts it is an “Antisemite and Holocaust-denying crank”. People like you are the kind who are messing up the world.

      You cannot know you are right untill you consider being wrong.

      • Holocaust Jew says:

        You are ignorant to suppose that you could possibly know with complete certainty what the truth is. Just because most people believe something, you call anyone who does not a monster. If you were truly curious and desired to know the truth, you’d be willing to hear any side of the argument, because that is how we progress towards the truth.

        You hear your truth about how the Holocaust happened and dismiss any other thought. Yet he is not hearing the other thought as truth, nor yours. What he is doing is USING HIS MIND and not just listening to the massing opinions of the opposition to the Nazis.

        As I said in a different comment, the Nazis convinced the Germans that the Jews were evil because of the atrocities the Jews had committed against Germany. They all chose to believe it, and not believing it was “refusal to hear the truth.” In order for us to be educated and attempt to unveil the truth, we must investigate ALL sides of any matter, not just the ones that fit our initial biases.

        So stop characterizing people as something evil when they only wish to open up their minds and explore truth. You are stifling the progress of discovery. Yes, it is VERY LIKELY to very near 100% that the Holocaust took place. But in order to keep our minds and the pursuit to truth pure, we must investigate any possibility that we can think of. This was the work of Descartes, Aristotle, and ANY philosopher of prominence. If you can have any doubt, you are not certain, and must investigate further.

        If you believe you do know for sure, do not dismiss and criticize him. Help him understand. Do this not by biased and random statistics, but by historical accounts of actual people from both sides. Not by just a few either. Overwhelm the evidence and formulate your own arguments.

  68. RobertM says:

    No society is good, whatever its intentions, whatever its Utopian and liberationist claims, if the men and women who live in it are not free to speak their minds.

    I don’t think you practice what you preach. Why did you delete the post of Citizenkn?

  69. santitafarella says:

    RobertM:

    I specifically removed his post to show him that I’m serious about keeping him off of my site. I suspect he won’t try to write here again, and if he does, the moment I see it, I’ll simply delete it unread.

    Citizenkn can start his own blog and write whatever he wants. There are lots of Holocaust denial sites on the web and he can exercise his free speech as he pleases from his own space, or from a space sympathetic to his opinion.

    But he cannot step onto the platform that I’ve set up here and say what he wants with impunity. I’m super lenient generally. I put up with a lot of views contrary to my own, and am happy to engage with people who disagree with me. I learn a lot from disagreement. But I won’t have anti-semitic and Holocaust-denial propaganda mixing in with what I regard as reasonable boundaries for debate in the threads here. I will not defame the Holocaust in that way. That is my right as someone who maintains this site. I also routinely delete people who I notice using the n-word toward Obama (a common thing during the election). I regard Holocaust deniers as a peculiarly perverse subculture in our society and I won’t be a party to supporting their linking about on the web. I think it would be irresponsible of me, frankly, to let people go without limits on my blog. I also will delete any person who speaks, for example, with gross disrespect toward women, calling them “b’s,” or someone who promotes NAMBLA. If you can’t make the distinction between free speech for people on their own platforms and on their own dimes, and the platforms that you might set up for your own blogging (and the tone that you want to set), then I can’t help you. This site—Prometheus Unbound—is never going to be a particularly friendly place for racists, pedophiles, Holocaust deniers, people who substitute profanity for argument, young earth creationists etc.

    I might (if I have the energy) debate with such people for a bit, and keep their posts up for others to see their inanity exposed, but if I’m in no mood for it, they run the risk of simply being deleted. I have no desire to support a platform suffused with crazy bullshit (unless it is my own!). : )

    In fact I have, in the past, carried on a dialogue with Holocaust deniers, and I got exhausted by their stupidity, and simply had to drive them off. That’s my current mood toward Holocaust deniers right now. Holocaust denial has the academic credibility of young earth creationism (that is, none). That’s not censorship; that’s respecting my right to control my own platform. Fences make good neighbors. And neighbors who are Holocaust deniers need to stay off of my porch.

    I, personally, am alarmed by the amount of Holocaust denial in our society. I won’t be a part of it.

    • Holocaust Jew says:

      You’re refusing to hear criticisms of the other side? You share the same gullibility as the Germans who believed the Jews evil if you so refuse to hear anything different. And while you may have had argument with deniers, others have not. So maybe you should be a good person and encourage debate, as it allows people of both sides to learn. If you know, fine, but allow the many other people who come by and read to be encouraged.

  70. RobertM says:

    Thanks for your reply. You may want to state your position better in your “About” as the ideology of I.F. Stone is in my opinion not a good example of what you just espoused. I have followed this post and others on rss and honestly, I did not see anything from Citizenkn’s first post (which is now gone) other than what may have ended up in a long drawn out debate on a tired, headache causing issue. I noticed he made another post here:

    [This link removed by the arbitrator of this blog.]

    Do you also consider that to be from an emotionally unbalanced Antisemite and Holocaust-denying crank?

    I’m curious because, I am going through my rss feeds deleting those that no longer hold my interest. Thanks Bob

  71. santitafarella says:

    RobertM:

    You have every right to no longer visit or contribute to this blog with comments if (in protest) you have a different standard for what constitutes censorship. I’ve given you my view of censorship above. It is not inconsistent (in my view) with Stone’s statement. You see it differently.

    As to the image and comment you link to, I do think that, yes, the writer is misrepresenting a piece of photographic evidence from the Holocaust for the purpose of denying the Holocaust. I also believe that people who deny the Holocaust and/or subscribe to Holocaust literature are likely to be eccentric cranks obsessed with conspiracy theories. And if they are not merely conspiracy obsessives, then they are either sick, evil, or stupid.

    I continue to intend to remove Antisemitic and Holocaust denial comments made at this site, including the one you directed me to. I obviously missed that one.

    • Holocaust Jew says:

      Santi I could totally own you in a debate about anything, any day, any time. You hold a blog only so you can hold power, so that you can simply remove anyone who has a wit to oppose yours. To me, this is a move of cowardice and retreat, one that signifies your inability to hold your own against an opposing viewpoint.

      Are you one of those high-school drop-outs who is thoroughly convinced of their own intellect? A self-proclaimed genius? It would make a lot of sense. Perhaps you should seek to prove me wrong and welcome opposing viewpoints. The path to truth comes only through dialectic. This is the meaning of Greek philosophy and much of modern thought, and you should consider employing it.

  72. RobertM says:

    Well, it was just a bit frustrating to me to spend a good thirty minutes preparing a three paragraph response to Mr.Citizen’s comment about the crematoria doors at Dachau (which btw I agree with his assessment that you have captioned it incorrectly). So, now that you have labeled him an Antisemitic and Holocaust denier my comment to that post would have more than likely had the same insult thrown at me. I am an old man Mr. Tafarella, a retired history teacher. I rarely post on blogs, but when I do, I like to be treated with respect and dignity. Yes, I am going to delete your rss feed simply because I really do not think you truly understand the lessons that I.F. Stone left us. Accuracy, Evidence and Responsibility.

      hey, i’m part german and my great grandfather was a Notzi. and he was forced to be on. So no the Germans didn’t want to do this, they were friends with the Jews. Hitler killed my great grandmother because she refused to be one, so my grandfather did it so he can stay alive to take care of my grandfather.

  76. mopar7080 says:

    The holocaust brought attention to the discrimination across the world and opened the eyes of people otherwise blinded by their own selfishness and lack of concern for their brother. So many times I have seen people question why God stood idly by while the holocaust persisted, however deplorable it may have been. But people don’t stop to realize that god did not CAUSE or ELECT the occurrence of the holocaust, but perhaps he allowed something to occur for reasons beyond our own understanding. Are we so arrogant that we believe that we should understand every move our maker makes? That our level of comprehension is comparable to that of an omnipotent God? And as a response to the question as to where God was in all this massacre and anguish, while all these sons and daughters, mothers and fathers were dying… well he was in the same place then as he was when his son was stripped of his flesh and life, nailed upon a cross.

    Hitler was a genius in his own right, DO NOT MISTAKE ME FOR DEFENDING HIM, I AM DEFINITELY NOT DOING SO. However I am saying I truly believe him to be one of the most intellectually amiable people, not morally amiable. Consider this. Hitler was able to kill off almost an entire race that was physically the mirror of himself. He was not a member of the Aryan race he was determined to create. He did not have blond hair or blue eyes, with fair olive skin and of a non-Semitic decent. He convinced an entire populous to kill off people matching his description without having them even notice or question it. They did not see him as inferior, like those they so shamelessly executed, rather the idealistic leader of the new Reich. It is a shame to mankind that we allowed the conditioning of such evil. Imagine how much good could have been accomplished if we only paid attention to our neighbor and their struggles. Perhaps then, we would not have produced such a deep, raw hatred like what we saw in Hitler, rather a leader who could have improve the quality of life in his rule. The holocaust was a horrible, terrifying and dismal time in human history and I hope we can all honor the martyrs of this horrible and appalling genocide.

    Okay, fine. But that’s different from calling the contemporary heads of these companies Nazis. For all you know, some of the people at the heads of these companies could be the grandchildren of American soldiers who fought against Hitler, or the grandchildren of Holocaust survivors. It’s an ugly thing that you’ve asserted. I wouldn’t like to work for one of these companies and find comments on the Internet insinuating I’m a Nazi because I work for, say, Ford. Ford was, undeniably, an anti-Semite. It doesn’t mean that most people working for the company today are.

    Also, my bet is that these companies are more humane to, say, gay people and religious diversity than most countries are. In some ways, multinationals advance human decency. It’s complex.

People are being slaughtered…right now…today and 50 years from now your grandchildren will ask what you did to stop it.

    • jonolan says:

      Gina,

      Darfur’s a lot different from Nazi Germany. Just how would you plan on ending the genocide there? The Sudanese government will only respond to force and the Arab League would back them against any Western use of force.

      400,000 dead now. How many die if we do the only thing that stands a chance of stopping it? Care to do the math on that one? I did and the probability chart made me sick to my gut.

  96. santitafarella says:

    Gina,

    I too find it interesting (and weird and sometimes disappointing) what people say in response to Holocaust photos. And your Darfur activism is admirable.

    A book to recommend to you: Sociologist Zigmund Bauman’s book on the Holocaust titled “Modernity and the Holocaust.” A really interesting reflection on how genocide in the modern era is always a danger (because of modern phenomena like dispersed responsibility, technological means of inflicting suffering and death, and bureaucratic efficiency).

    Who’s responsible for the 1 million Iraqis dead in the Iraq War (for example)?

    —Santi

    • jonolan says:

      I understand your point, Santi, but you’re citing figures that are not backed up by independent verification when you describe 1 million dead in the Iraq War. Try reviewing this site: http://www.iraqbodycount.org/database/ which admittedly only lists civilian deaths, but Iraq’s military wasn’t that big.

      As odd as it may sound to many people, the Iraq War probably saved a lot of lives. Iraq’s infrastructure had been so mangled by years of “peaceful” sanctions, that it’s likely that’s where you’d really find 1 million Iraqis dead.

  97. santitafarella says:

    Jonolan:

    I could very well be wrong about the figure. My understanding is that one way of counting war dead is to ask what the mortality rate was pre-war and what it is during the war, and then immediately post-war. People die for a whole variety of causes during war. For example, people might die because they didn’t get medicines that, in peacetime, might have been readily available. They might die from lowered immune systems from the stress of war, or heartbreak a year after losing a loved one, or from not getting enough to eat. How many people would be alive who are now dead because of the Iraq War? The figure, when taking all these factors into account, may well reach a million people, and I think that this should factor into any president’s decision in starting a war. How many will be dead at the end of this who would likely have still been alive if I don’t start a war? I’m not laying all the culpability for death, in this instance (whether we say it was 100,000 or one million deaths during the war) on the United States. Hussein bears a good deal of blame for wrecking his country. My point is that so do people who pay their taxes and carry out policies on behalf of the war machine (think Thoreau here).

    —Santi

  98. jonolan says:

    Well hell, Santi. We agree on something. I too believe in a “cascade” of culpability in these matters. That is,perhaps, why I care about those numbers; I prefer to know what price has actually been paid and what the weight of the burden is that my soul must carry.

  99. santitafarella says:

    Jonolan:

    Shock. We agree? You said: “Weight my soul must carry.” I like that. Yikes. I’ll be reading Friedman and Ludwig von Mises soon (if I’m not careful).

    Also, the reason I like the Bauman book I suggested above is how he shows the ways in which a highly technologized and buereaucratic society (trained to split emotions from duty and follow procedures), can turn into a death and torture machine with no single person apparently culpable for the mutation. Bauman thinks that the Holocaust is not a “one off” historical event, but something likely to happen again and again in a world structured the way global societies are today. I think the Iraq War was a mini example of this phenomenon.

    —Santi

    • jonolan says:

      Bauman has some very good points – scary points, but good all the same. They’re also points in some cases where I have direct personal experience with so am unable to refute them honestly.

      What is scarier to me is when the cause for potential atrocities is not splitting of emotion from decision making, but a shift in priorities and willingness to sacrifice ones’ self for a greater cause.

      The scariest and bravest man I knew was convinced that what he and I did in the course of our duty had damned us to Hell for all eternity and he viewed that as “acceptable collateral damage!”

  100. santitafarella says:

    Jonolan:

    That’s a disturbing story that you shared. If you have a link to your blog where you write about your military experiences, feel free to share it.

    As for sacrifice, I too find Hegelianism terrifying. I don’t want the historic movement of history mowing me down either (to some “higher” good, secular or religious).

    To me, Hegelianism is religious theodicy turned secular, so it’s not surprising your buddy spoke of going to hell as acceptable collateral damage. It’s coming from the same place—the same intellectual family of ideas.

What he accomplished was nothing short of miraculous: the testimonies of over fifty thousand survivors from 32 countries, preserved in perpetuity.

I’ll agree the picture is a very painful reminder of Nazi Germany, but please try to show more respect. It wasn’t just Adolf Hitler who did this, but many people who followed him too.. This was so well hidden from the world at that time, that many Nazi’s and their families didn’t know..let alone people who were fighting them. Germans were raised to think that the Jews and Gypsies were to blame for their economic and social downfall and they were taught to hate them.
    I’ve been to Auschwitz and studied much about the camps and feel a true sorrow for what the jews and my (Polish) ancestors went through. I would suggest everyone be taught about the Holocaust to keep it from ever happening again.

    After the Nazis had taken Germany politicaly it was forbiden for my father to play with German kids because of his name.IT was only a name!!!!(For all those who deny the holocaust)
    My grandfather went into the Naziparty after proving that we are Germans from begining what every German had to do at that time and saved our famely that way, but on the streets and dayly life things didn’t change!

And just to think about what those people had to go through sickens me to the very pit of my heart. Things like this are ignored all over the world, such as all of the children recruited into rebel armies, these types of things are FORCED upon children, to the point where if they live through it, they feel so terrible for what they were forced to do, that they kill themselves to make up for it.

        I’m probably going to leave a few of your comments up for the same reason, but your redundant and profane posts, I’m deleting those. And if you have something interesting or novel to say, I might let that stand. I tend to take posts on a case by case basis, and not just ban an individual automatically. But I’ve debated with Holocaust sympathizers and deniers before. It’s informative because I’m interested in human psychology and critical thinking, and how people’s reasoning processes work. But I do find the back and forth tiresome and repugnant after a while, so I just am not tolerating it much at my site. Sorry. You seem like a smart person, but also a bitter one, and I doubt that you have seriously read respected academic books on the issue. Like young earth creationists, Holocaust deniers tend to be people who have a visceral resentment of professionally trained historians and scientists, and the consensus opinions that they arrive at based on multiple lines of converging evidence.

        By the way, you’ll notice that I’ve left your critique of one of my posts as high schoolish up (precisely because you came at the issue in an intelligle and novel way).

        I wish you well. I have no interest in demonizing you as a person, but I hope you’ll reconsider your views. I think that they are very, very damaging to the human heart (to absorb Holocaust denialism or fascist ideology).

However, my personal opinions are of very little utility to the people, who should learn not what is right to think but what process in which to think. Debate should never grow tiresome, for it is the only way we learn. To grow tired of arguing is to grow tired of learning. Yet, I will admit that some do not offer a viable form of debate, but argument in a rational form is always good.

        As for your assumptions as to the nature of Holocaust deniers I will have to disagree. I am actually an astrophysicist, and I find many other scientists are just as interested in playing devil’s advocate and doubting everything. In fact, as Richard Feynman (a great physicist) once said, “Science is the belief in the ignorance of experts.” To doubt is to think, and to think is to find truth.

        And I must admit I’m both surprised and relieved you left this comment up, and agree with the criteria through which you evaluate what is to deleted.

        Holocaust Jew:

        I’m glad to hear that you are not a Holocaust denier. Since you like critical thinking topics, there’s a very good book on critical thinking that you might be interested in getting: How to Think about Weird Things (by Schick and Vaughn). You can find it at Amazon. I don’t believe that there is anything on Holocaust denial in it, but it has many other interesting topics. I understand the impulse to be a contrarian and to make people think, but I believe that you have completely lost your sense of proportion as to what is sensible to provoke people concerning. Rational intelligence should go with wisdom and emotional intelligence. There are lots of topics that you can provoke critical thinking in people with and play devil’s advocate on (which is why I recommended the book to you). I just don’t think that the Holocaust should be treated in that way.

        Holocaust Jew:

        One more quick thought. When I posted Holocaust images at my site, I was surprised at how many people felt a desire to simply text brief responses of revulsion to them. I let them stand because they remind me of Goya’s book of one line responses to the horrors of war (accompanied by some drawings that he had made). Thus these threads are really not the best forum for having a substantive historical discussion (because people are having visceral responses to an image).

    This was nothing to joke about, and it still isn’t. These weren’t just Jews either. Slavs, Jews, Soviet POWs, anyone who was DISABLED or MENTALLY ILL (not joking here), homosexuals, and Jehovah’s witnesses were all rounded up same as the Jews. Hitler was a sick man.

  120. u people really need to learn to spell and also have any of u even heard of the holocaust apart from a couple i can see know. Even after the Jewish people were rescued from the concentration camps they died because they were to exhausted to even swallow and digest the food they needed. They are naked because as soon as they got to the extermination camps they were stripped of all belongings including clothes and some were sent to gas chambers to die and some were worked to death. Read about Hitlers childhood Jewish organizations helped him when he was young and yet he still hates them. Seriously read up on these things plus i realise your americans and you dont learn about these things in your education but you should still learn look up and read about this america is still treats people like crap for no reason other than their nationality and skin color so if you think this is bad relate it.

    • Anonymous says:

      ummm. well don’t tell people they need to learn how to spell because you spelled realize wrong. and yes you have the right idea. people are idiots.

  121. really it was mostly jews sure people who protected the jews and hid them even people who were mentally ill or incurable as Hitler called it the Polish were slaughtered again no reason but if you look at the numbers it was mostly jewish people because they were on the bottom of Hitlers list they were thought as the most inferior race of course the Master Race was non-jewish, non-mentally ill Catholic Germans they experimented on POW jewish people and made so called official discoveries that were meant to prove they were the master race. Then they tried to create another plague that wouldn’t affect the master race and a lot of germans disagreed with hitler anyway there were many assasination attempts on hitler sadly all failed. Plus everyone who said they would go back and kill hitler he was more protected than anyone is today or ever. To think some people dont even believe the holocaust happened shows how stupid people are some think that all the pictures and eyewitnesses are lies even the survivors. But Hitler made a massive mistake Russia and Germany were allies then hitler decided to attack the russians no one has ever defeated the russians on home soil (snow) to date so you can see how that turned out. Hitler lost half his army we have a lot to thank russians for in that regard although they just used their famous run tactic because usually their opponents don’t know how to deal with their freezing environments they did fight as well and were the first to Berlin and the only to know Hitlers true fate until released later on. Hitler got married just before he killed himself and the wfe had the great pleasure of dieing with him. He killed his own dog to test the poison given to him to see if it was real. So knowing this took the poison and shot himself in the head wife followed or before not entirely sure. He was a horrible person. Cartman in south park is a kid version of hitler if he was on happy pills really fkn strong ones.

    It’s amazing how immature people are being on here, honestly before you feel the need to put your two sence in here maybe you should study the damn war. First it was not all Jewish people, it was homosexul, disabled, the elderly and anyone that did not beleieve in what Hitler was preeching.

    Second, they didn’t have any choice they weren’t fed there for they ended looking like this and these people more or less probably did not die of starvation this was them after being gassed and then they were going to be burned, because that was the unlimate way of killing Jewish people.

      • Holocaust Jew says:

        Step 1. Realize shock humor when you see it.
        Step 2. Realize its paramount purpose is not generally to degrade. See Borat. You might think that movie’s purpose was to ridicule Jews. However, you’ll find the main actor is a very Jewish graduate of Cambridge University in England. He employs shock humor so that people might see how stupid their prejudices sound when taken a few notches up. So maybe you shouldn’t be so quick to attack.

        As for me, I’m not Jewish, and I think your ancestors deserve what they got.

  133. Mary says:

    Ok- read a few comments, and I have somethin’ to say.

    Some people were saying things about them dieing from eating? And some people saying it wasn’t true? It is.

    When you don’t eat enough, your body just begins to become disfunctional. A LOT of the people who were starved died from being FED. The soldiers giving them whole foods didn’t know that the skeletal bodies couldn’t take in whole food, and need to be fed soup and liquid that could be contained. A loaf of bread just wasn’t going to work, and killed them.

    Also- Hitler, as a boy, wanted to become a painter, I also heard he wanted to be a priest, but I won’t stand by that. His father was more a military man, and forced him into much harder training. I’ve heard rumors of a Jewish man was his mothers doctor? Who died? I can’t say anything on that, either.

    And that’s correct- not to many people REALLY knew what was happening in the concentration camps. Although, I know more on the inmates and how they lived than I do about the Germans.

    If you enjoy learning more about this, just look it up, and some books and movies about the Holocaust are- The Boy In The Striped Pajamas(Fictional)
    Anne Frank(Recommended)
    Night(Recommended)
    A Woman In Berlin(Movie, based off a womans diary)
    The Kommandants Girl(I liked this, and the author is a historian, but it is fictional.)

    I’m 15 and i’m currently learning about the Holocaust at school… it truly amazes me that some of you dipshits are so fucking clueless about what the Holocaust was really about. You say anything about Hitler and Nazi Germany like you know the whole fucking history of the world.

    First of all, THE HOLOCAUST HAPPENED. Some of you are taking it so lightly, its gonna take another holocaust just to persuade you how horrible it was.

    Some of you morons dont even BELIEVE it happened… likw wtf? Are we freaking dumbasses for teaching this in schools and publishing the atrcoiaty in books? This was a widespread persecution that happened to millions of Jews, they arent fucking retards for spreading their stories all over the world. And there’s fucking evidence to prove it too. IT AINT NO FAIRY TALE.

    I read this one moronic comment about the photos being photoshopped. It was so stupid, I actually laughed. How can the photo be PHOTOSHOPPED?? These photos were taken decades ago, computers weren’t invented you dumbfuck.

    I feel absolutely horrible about the persecution of not only the Jews, but everyone who opposed Hitler. I’m not sure what they did to deserve this… none of you know Hitler so stop pretending like you know why he did this. He was a great dictator (great in the sense that he was genius enough to get so much of Germany to follow his plan). I’m DEFINATELY not saying the sick bastard did good things. He was the farthest thing from being human. Instead of building humanity, he tried to destroy it.

    So I guess this is all I have to say… God bless everyone who has the heart to feel for these victims.. everyone else, burn in hell.

    Hitler tricked Germans into believing that the Jews were bad people. A fire burned the stateshouse and he blamed it on the jews and they became the internal enemy in Germany. he was an evil genius in every sense of the term. He believed the Aryans were the master race though he himself did not look like his mater race. Hitler sctually believed and convinced other people the moon blew up and the Aryans were the only people to survive. His ideas were crazy and he was unreasonable. He was beat as a child by his father tot he point of almost unconciousness nightly. It is said his father did this because Hitler may have been someone elses child. His mother was a servant and possibly her boss who was Jewish was Hitlers father. So Hitler himself may have been Jewish. He became a sociopath from the beatings. His mother lost a batlle breast cancer and he was outraged at the doctor who experimented on her with what we now know as chemotherapy. The doctor that experimented was jewish. Part of the killing of Jews was to avenge his mothers death. Hitler was heavy into meth as well. He took it daily while his parkinsons disease was eating him alive. It is also believed he might have been gay when his girlfirend commited suicide. He also took over Austria in spite of his father who would have disaporved of this and been outraged. For someone who hated Jews so much and different people he took blonde hair and blue eyed children for his mater race from Norway.

    Bottom Line Hitler was a mad man

    The images are not gross they are a look into our ashamed past of something we did not prevent or believe in…

    Germans knew what was going on what were they going to do to stop it…..if they tried they toow ould be killed…..”the walls in Germany had ears” they were not to talk about what happened and many Germans today will say that they believed the camps were bakeries where the people made breads and such…….

    when it came to killing the jews the germans were told”he owuld not like it if Germans did such things gladly. But their concious was no way impaired, for they were soliders who had to carry out every order unconditionally. He alone had the responsibility before God and Hitler for everything that was happening………..and he act was acting from a deep understanding of the necessity for this opeartion” FINALL SOLUTION SS leader Himmler

    Also I wanted to say that as far as the people starving the Nazis found out down to a t how to figure out how many calories the jews would need by their weight to work and have the energy to do what they needed and thats it. They would give them just that many calories and they would do their job and get nothing more. They did eat but they were still starving. Usually then when they became too weak then they were killed.

    It is said that in one of the camps that there were violins playing while the people walked to the “showers”. While on a tour it became apparent one of the older ladies had been there as a child with her family. The tour guide mentioned isn’t it nice you had grass here with violons. The response of the Jewish women who didnt miss a beat was m’am if there would have been grass here we would have eaten it.

    actually alot of you are wrong. hitler tried to take control of the government and failed. he was put in jail for about 9 months. while he was there he wrote his book mein kampf which was about his resentment towards jews, his plans to exterminate them and so on. hitler was released from jail and wrote a second part to his first book. he then made a political party called the national socialist german workers party. many joined this party. he went on advertisments of his party and convinced many germans he would help better germany. his logo was “germany above all else.” many germans believed him because he was devouted to his country. they were very influential when he started these advertisments and speeches because the great depression was happening during this time. and during this devastation they looked to someone with such a dedication to perserving germany’s power and where it stood. after he won over many germans he took power soon after their president was killed. he took over the state and central government. him and his fellow nazis started their extermination. he made all jews sew identifaction patches on all their clothing. which was the star of david. he then moved all jews into ghettos which were sectioned off parts of cities surrounded by stone walls with barbed wire at the top and nazis guarding the ghettos to prevent the jews from escaping. ghettos had bad living conditions. many died from lack of food and water. there wasnt much work so money was hard to come by. but the ghettos money wasnt actually money they usually used in germany it was fake money and they also had ration cards in which they purchased food. many died from low amounts of food. disease also spread quickly thoughout the ghetto killing hundreds. soon after the ghettos were established they, the inhabitants were shipped off to concentration camps. depending on which concentration cmap you arrived at you would most likely be given a number. you would no longer have a name only a number. you would be stripped of your possessions and anything the nazis thought valuable. this is if you were lucky to be chosen to stay alive. the old, sick, and ones to young to work would be immediately killed. some concentration camps werent as bad as others, like auschwitz. many feared the camp they were staying in would be liquidated and they would be sent somewhere worse. which happened quickly. at first there were many little concentration camps. but as time went by they created bigger camps to hold and kill more jews. the bigger the camp, usually, the worse it was. the worst concentration camp by far was auschwitz which by the end of the war killed over 3 million people. auschwitz was divided into three subcamps. the first camp was a forced labor camp. the inmates would be forced to work all day and get as much as a piece of bread to eat a day. after a back breaking (literally) day of hard work they would be sent back in front of their barracks (where they slept in wodden bunk beds with no blanket or pillow they were lucky to have straw in their bunks) for hours to be counted. once finished they would be sent to their assigned barracks to sleep. the barracks were controlled and looked after by inmates chosen by the nazis. these conditions were hard to live in. many died of starvation and disease. if you were to get sick or beaten too harshly by the nazis you would be sent to the infirmary to get better/heal. if you didnt get better/heal in the next few days that followed you would be killed. going to the infirmary was not something you wanted to do. during the day the nazis would go on killing sprees, beating/shooting/hanging/torturing any inmate they chose. they would even do this at night. they would go through barracks at random and beat/kill inmates, thats why the topbunks were fought over, the fear of being woken up by a nazi beating you to death in the middle of the night. this happened in each of the subcamps. the second subcamp was the holding camp where inmates were held until more room opened up in the forced labor camp. the third camp was the extermination camp. you were sent here for a couple of reasons. the first is when you first arrived you didnt pass the examination to see if you were able to work. these examinations were held regularly in the camp. if someone after being there for a while didnt pass the examination they would be killed. thats the second reason, you didnt pass the examination. the third reason is if you were unluckily picked out and sent here by one of the nazis. the extermination camp was a camp full of buildings. you would be sent inside the building and were told you’d be taking a shower. once inside, and the door sealed shut. the nazis would turn the “water” on. except water didnt come out of the nozels. gas did, suffocation everyone in there. the nazis had peep holes put into the walls of the buildings so they could watch the nazis die. once all the inmates that were gassed died the nazis would send people into the room to take the corpses to the chimneys. (the people who were sent to do this job were inmates the nazis chose) once all the bodies were transported to the chimneys they would check each of the mouths for gold teeth. remove the teeth then put the bodies into the fire burning chimney. if the chimneys were full then the inmates chose to do this job would take them to and put them in mass graves the inmates in the forces labor camps would dig. life here was horrible. the nazis would perform many ways of torture on the inmates. one way they tortured them was they put a candle in a room and some inmates in a room and seal the door. the candle would use up all the oxygen essentially suffocating the inmates. they would also put an inmates hands behind their back, tie a nuse around the hands, then put the other end of the nuse around a tree, pull the nuse till the inmates were lifted off the ground from their hands and make them hang there. this dislocated their shoulders and broke their arms. they would hang there in pain until they died of loss of blood or starvation. they would beat inmates to death. they would line up some inmates make them face away from the nazis then the nazis would stand with guns for a couple hours every few minutes killing another inmate and making them aniticipate their death. they would also preform many disgusting medical procedures on them. for example trying to put an inmates blue eyes into another inmates eye sockets that had brown eyes. they would take out their tongues, remove fingernails, remove ears, and even skin inmates. they did anything they wanted to them. it was horrible. and they most german citizens that werent jews and werent taken away didnt know this kind of thing was happening. they knew of the concentration camps but they didnt know what was going on. the nazis were sworn to secrecy and they werent even allowed to tell their families what they did. there were commericials on tv of concentration camps and they looked like the jews had it pretty well there. they would show families sitting down at a picnic table for lunch. they made it seem as though nothing was wrong with these camps. once the war was over many other countries came to relieve the camps. they had no idea of the extent of the happenings of the camps. actually my english teachers dad was one of the american soldiers that came and released the inmates at one of the camps. many things that happened at the camp werent even allowed to be put out to the public and on the internet. there are pictures that arent allowed to be released by the government and information about the occurences of the camps that is prohibited for the public to see.. its horrible

    If you do not know difference, it does not mean that there is not one.
    There were privileges even in concentration camp. Polish and Russian had rights to keep breathing, but Jews were subjects for immediate extermination

  190. amuslim girl says:

    iam sad about what happened for jews in the holocost oprations that was very hard for any person but exucuse me that is not areason for what they doing in palastin as there ar alot of the same operations to kill people and children . there is alot of countries lose many people like algiria lost amilion person . so pleas just think about what happen in palastin .

  191. Melanie says:

    ok the reason they died when they eat is because when a person has not had food in them for like say two months( your stomach is the size of a averge human fist) theyre stomachs will be the size or a small rock! so give that stomach food it’ll expolde cause its not use to it. And they killed all kinds of people not just jewish people he killed anyone that wasnt blue eyed perfeect german like hitler wanted even tho him self was jewish. pay attention in class btw im 16 & a junior in highschool

  192. dd says:

    i cant believe that hitler killed the jews because he wanted the race to be equal

  193. Ulanigida says:

    First their Rights were taken, then their Freedom was taken. Dignity nor Respect was shown or given then food was with held.They had clothes but they were ordered to remove their clothes and and told they would go through the ‘showers’ many were gased under that pretense and all the while the very clothes they had on their backs were rifled through and anything of value (including eye glasses) was taken by the Germans, often by means of using Jews themselves to do their dirty work in exchange for their lives and a bit of what was considered food and that was often not even given daily! Many would cut off their own fingers or flesh and eat them to stay alive. Most lived on hope that someone would care. Most died waiting! each of you may have seen one picture but there are many. Human beings were poisoned and while they died in excruciating pain their arms and legs were cut off.They were concious until either the poison killed them or they bled to death!
    Hitler was worse than an animal and his so called docters and scientists were even worse in the things they did. Sadists taken over by devils from hell!
    Some ask why the victims didn’t fight back. Some did. All had gotten to the point however of no return because the enemy worked gradually to remove rights and freedoms and when they isolated them, reality set in. They were captured behind walls and fences and mistreated by guards and gunned down if they resisted. This very thing is happening in America right now and people still believe the government would never do anything to hurt them. History repeats itself because America waited before doing anything to help those in camps, experimented on,murdered, starved…Be Not Decieved…God is NOT mocked for what so ever a man sows, so shall he reap. Leaders cause the nations they lead to reap the results of their decisions, actions and lack of actions because there are many that support those leaders right up until they themselves become victims of their own choices.
    You say you would do this or that but no one knows what they would do until they find themselves in the places they are talking about. Christ Jesus is the ONLY door to Father God and Salvation and Strength. Knowledge is freedom. Wisdom is sustaining and those who do not know will fall prey to the results!

    I would kill that hitler cuase he destroyed my religion and made people suffer for no reason, just becuase they were jewish. There are a half of a percent of jews in the world and i and my peers are trying slowly to rebuild our race and people. I hope you take my words very serious and i love the jews cause thats who i am and many other people
    thanks

    This is horrible do they feel power when they kill them? really. Are they so stupid that they can’t SEE that if they want people to work for them they need to have FOOD or warmth to be healthy and work. How could people just watch it happen and think it’s right to kill humans just like themselves

  197. WWII Dude says:

    you guys suck i mean there were more christians killed than jews!

  198. WWII Veteran says:

    You gnetlemen and ladies are blinded by what the Jewish authors are publishing, because they just will not allow you to realize that other races and religions were offected also. By the way, more Christians were killed than Jews, and pardon my saying, but that sucks so yes hurt Hitler(though not for the jews but for the Christians).

  199. Ulanigida says:

    To assume that we do not know or are not aware of the multitude of Innocents brutalized,tortured, starved and murdered is wrong.
    You simply can not put all victims under a broad spectrum and deny any of them.
    The point I am making is this, the intense hatred was pointed more directly and pointedly at the Jews. It has been that way far longer than just in Germany. It happened in the States as well.
    Hitler hated Jews,satan hates Jews because Father God has HIS Name upon and over them.
    The hatred of the enemy against the Jews included all other peoples they did the same vile evil and disgusting things to.
    Out of ALL those Innocents, men and women from all walks ONLY the Jews had no Nation of their own! They had NO one to care whether they had a home or a country or a nation except themselves and they fought and died and lived for every single thing they have gotten. No one GAVE them anything. In Abba Yahwhes time, which was just after that war,Abba Yahweh caused the NATION of ISRAEL to be Established and He keeps it because it and His People are His!
    He gave His People Dreams and Visions and drew them back to Israel and believe me they are still reurning and still having dreams and Visions.
    Let there be No Mistake, Abba Yahweh LOVES every single survivor and descendants of those survivors no matter what nation they live in and call home.
    The Land od Israel and Gods people have been maligned and accused of everything and while there are those that may not walk the walk, just as it is in every nation and country, they are still the most gracious and understanding of all nations. They offer unbiased help to all and seldom have I ever heard them run anyone or any nation down the tubes and NEVER have I heard them repute the same deaths and tortures and starvation and evil having been done to others the same as they.
    Some of their most beloved friends were other than professing Jews and they treasured them and treasure their memories yet today.
    The nations of the world tell a different story however and mislead people that do not know, have not been taught, have not seen the pictures or have not had family that survived that they were being ‘left out’ as it were of notice.
    There comes a time when every person MUST seek Truth for themselves instead of believing anyone elses assumptions, opinions or views. To do less is insulting to all those that went through that horrible black time and all descendants that are living today.I blieve in Justice and Justice begins with Truth…For ALL.

    I feel for these people esp. the innocent children. this is hatred in full bloom from one man. I believe we should all learn from this and lets not hate one another.

    God made everyone of us unique, we should except people as they are and not criticise them of their skin color, or race, or where they are from. Jesus Christ died on the cross for “everyone” not just for one race. Imagine how the world will be like if we love one another.

    This is weird, Time magazine named Hitler as 1938 ‘Man of the Year’. It wasn’t meant to honor him but to acknowledge his influence in world events.

    Hitler and the NAZI’s are often referred to as right wing fascists but they were also left wing socialists. Hitler appealed to the people by promising entitlements and wealth to the poor. He was also a very emotional speaker and pulled on the heart strings of the German people. The next time you hear a politician speak ‘from the heart’ instead of ‘from the head’…think about how dangerous it can be to mix emotion and politics.
