Holocaust denial on the rise in Eastern Europe


LifeSupport

After Lithuania changed the definition of ‘genocide’ and Baltic countries have turned murderers of Jews into national heroes, Holocaust researchers are accusing the State of Israel of standing idly by as history is being re-written.

ed note–the entire ‘Hollercost’ meme is losing its steam for 2 reasons-

(1) Organized Jewish interests DEMAND sympathy from those they oppress and terrorize, therefore the ‘sympathy’ that is maintained towards them is not genuine, and

(2) Holocaustianity has become like one of those aged Hollywood stars that has undergone 100 plastic surgery procedures and now has become a freak. Jews demand that Gentiles keep the ‘holy of holies’ fixed as an item of foremost importance in their lives, all the while that the world and all its systems are falling apart.

Ynet

The testimonies are fading away, the memorial sites are turning into entertainment centers, and the historical story is seen as just another “Jewish narrative”: If anyone thought that Holocaust denial was a marginal phenomenon among a few anti-Semites and Israel haters, evidence shows that is it a much wider, more well-established and dangerous phenomenon that is receiving reinforcement on the ground from eastern European countries.

In Lithuania, for example, people are doing everything to downplay the significance of the horrors of the war as a unique event in the history of mankind, and in Ukraine a famous mass murder site has turned into a thriving jogging spot.

According to Dr. Efraim Zuroff, a Nazi hunter and director of the Simon Wiesenthal Center office in Jerusalem, many countries have adopted an intentional policy leading to de facto Holocaust denial. While researchers and historians are trying to fight the new phenomenon and to get western Europe to join the battle, the State of Israel is actually standing back and doing nothing.

Speaking at the Shem Olam Institute‘s international conference “A Past that Doesn’t Pass,” which opened in Europe Monday, Dr. Zuroff pointed at Lithuania as the country leading the change. He noted that it initiated a change in the definition of “genocide,” thereby essentially “uniting” the memory of the Holocaust with the memory of communism.

In Ukraine, the parliament approved a law banning denial of the communist holocaust and imposing a two-year prison sentence on those violating it.

According to the Nazi hunter, this is part of an ongoing attempt to convince the world that there were two holocausts, and that therefore the European Jews’ Holocaust was not a unique radical event. “August 23 is marked as a memorial day for the victims of the totalitarian regimes,” he noted. “The memory of the Holocaust is being pushed away as part of this process.”

Rabbi Avraham Krieger, head of the Shem Olam Institute for Holocaust education and research, believes the new Holocaust deniers are driven by a psychological motive, namely an attempt to dissolve the perception of the Holocaust as a unique phenomenon in favor of a historical description which will minimize the feelings of guilt among the countries which actively participated – or whose citizens actively participated – in the murder of Jews.

Dr. Zuroff sees it too. He says there is an attempt to conceal and blur the eastern Europeans’ role in the massacre. “In Lithuania there was a systematic killing of Jews by the local population,” he explained. “That is the reason why 96 percent of the Jews there did not survive and many communities were completely erased. The intentional goal is to conceal this fact.

“The mass murderers of Jews among the local population are perceived as national heroes because of their war against the communists, and streets, squares and governmental institutions have been named after them. How can anyone acknowledge their role in the annihilation if the murderers are considered heroes?”

Lithuania is not alone. According to the two researchers, “soft denial” is taking place in Baltic countries like Estonia and Latvia, as well as in Poland, Croatia and Hungary.

Bodies of thousands of Jews under a green park

“For example Joanna Bator, a local historian, describes construction works for the erection of a square named after a local hero who fought communism on the street which included the entrance gate into the ghetto,” says Krieger. “It can also be interpreted in a very innocent manner, but of all places in Warsaw, they had to do it on a street with such a significant historical memory?

“There is also a plan to erect a huge monument for Righteous Among the Nations in the center of the ghetto, although one already exists opposite the Holocaust museum in Warsaw. There seems to be an attempt to downplay the fact that many Poles were far from being righteous gentiles, but were rather played a role in the annihilation in wide areas in Poland as the Nazis’ active partners. There are Poles who are finding it difficult to accept this fact and of course to take responsibility for its meaning.”

According to Dr. Zuroff, sites of mass killing across Europe are being deserted or turned into parks which attract families on Sundays. In the Majdanek concentration camp it happened even when the murdered Jews’ bones were still scattered around in a visible manner.

The Babi Yar mass murder site in the heart of Kiev, where one of the deadliest massacres in Eastern Europe took place, has become a green band of jogging and baby strollers. “Apart from a symbolic monument, there is no trace of the fact that under the thick plants there are thousands of bodies of Jews who were systematically eliminated.”

When did you realize something was going on?

“It didn’t happen right away,” Rabbi Krieger admits. “The person who headed the Holocaust commemoration enterprise in Poland until 2009 was a Pole who had been sent to Auschwitz himself, and he was very committed to the matter. Since then, a wave of new appointments began in all of the country’s commemoration sites, and there are constant changes. I’m not sure that they are officially guided, but this is the new wind blowing there.

“There are all kinds of ‘renovations’ taking place in concentration camps, covering historical truths which took place there. In Chełmno, for example, there was a pit with Jewish items and human remains, so they went and covered it all up with gravel. They didn’t leave a trace of what used to be there, not even a sign. There is no trace of the large holes which were used for the horrific act of destroying the bodies.

“Museums are turning into a place for the presentation of this local narrative, instead of presenting history. This joins all kinds of concrete Holocaust denials by local historians in new studies. If once we witnessed a spirit of taking responsibility for the past – it is now gone.”

According to Dr. Zuroff, Eastern European countries’ efforts to “conceal the evidence” and blur history have increased since the Baltic countries became part of the European Union. “It’s mostly common there because they really have something to hide,” he said. “The fact that they were living under a communist regime prevented them from holding an open debate on the truth.”

Anti-Semitic but friendly towards Israel

“It took France 40 years to acknowledge the crimes of the Vichy government (a Nazi puppet regime established in central France). And most importantly, it’s a governmental-diplomatic trend, not a private initiative or social phenomenon. The EU is keeping quiet. There are no condemnations or appeals on their part on this issue or a request to maintain the European narrative of the Holocaust.”

And where is the State of Israel in this grim picture? “I am very embarrassed,” Zuroff admits. “I care about the state so much and I feel bad criticizing it, but the situation is not good and I must present the dangers created by its silence. The feeling is that a state which sees itself as the inheritor of the Nazis’ victims, and was first in line to receive financial benefits, has an interest in keeping quiet. So it’s keeping quiet.”

The researcher’s explanation is that “the leading countries in Holocaust denial today have good relations with Israel, even if they may be anti-Semitic towards Jews. So instead of crying out against what was done to the Holocaust victims, Israel is keeping quiet.”

According to Zuroff, the United States, which became slightly involved in the issue in the past in an attempt to influence the situation, is keeping quiet too, as are France and Germany.

“The fact that there are countries in Europe which have not taken responsibility for the Holocaust must be acknowledged. In Austria, for example, they are still using all kinds of legal measures to prevent the prosecution of Nazi war criminals. Only recently, they rejected our request to try a woman who was responsible for putting women in gas chambers, arguing that she only played “a passive role” which she cannot be prosecuted for.”

Is anything being done nonetheless?

“A book which is expected to be released in Lithuania next month is going to create a major scandal,” Dr. Zuroff says. “A famous Lithuanian author, Ruta Vanagaite, wrote a book with me about the Lithuanians’ role in the murder of Jews during the Holocaust. She began showing an interest in the issue after discovering that her family members had been involved in it. We studied the scope and the motivation and listened to testimonies from eyewitnesses. It’s a very grim picture. Let’s hope it raises a discussion on the issue.” 

“First of all, let’s not think that we have done what we have to do by remembering and commemorating relatives who were murdered in the Holocaust,” Rabbi Krieger adds. “If at the same time someone changes the entire historical picture, it’s as if we didn’t do a thing. Young Jews visit those countries, go to museums, are exposed to ‘that narrative’ and even adopt it – and that’s a huge danger.

“We must understand that we are standing at a decisive junction in the history of the Holocaust. Most of the survivors can no longer cry out and speak, so it’s our mission to make sure that Europe, which wants to forget, will not forget.”

    What we need is a few good communist hunters, looking for the red-jews who killed so many Christian Gentiles, throughout Russia proper, and Europe; it will not be a difficult task as there were so many, and they all have murdered and plundered with impunity – not even one, so far as I know, being hung for murder. Perhaps even a museum of “Marxitrocities (my term) and other hidden holocausts should be established?

    Please pass this article round everywhere you can, confirming that the WWII Jewish-controlled British Government requested the higher members of the British clergy and the BBC to go along with the proposed construction of fictitious accounts of the Holocaust of the 6 million Jews In WWII by National Socialist Germany, being constructed by the Ministry of Truth, to provide distraction and cover for what the ‘Allied’ Jewish-controlled Russian government had done in 1917 and afterwards, and were about to do to the rest of Europe if they got their way.

    http://careandwashingofthebrain.blogspot.co.uk/2015/12/british-ministry-of-truth-said-in-1944.html

    February 29, 1944 letter to the BBC and higher members of the British clergy, from the British Ministry of Information;

    “I am directed by the Ministry to send you the following circular letter:

    It is often the duty of the good citizens and of the pious Christians to turn a blind eye on the peculiarities of those associated with us.

    But the time comes when such peculiarities, while still denied in public, must be taken into account when action by us is called for.

    We know the methods of rule employed by the Bolshevik dictator in Russia itself from, for example, the writing and speeches of the Prime Minister himself during the last twenty years. We know how the Red Army behaved in Poland in 1920 and in Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Galicia and Bessarabia only recently.

    We must, therefore, take into account how the Red Army will certainly behave when it overruns Central Europe. Unless precautions are taken, the obviously inevitable horrors which will result will throw an undue strain on public opinion in this country.

    We cannot reform the Bolsheviks but we can do our best to save them — and ourselves — from the consequences of their acts. The disclosures of the past quarter of a century will render mere denials unconvincing. The only alternative to denial is to distract public attention from the whole subject.

    Experience has shown that the best distraction is atrocity propaganda directed against the enemy. Unfortunately the public is no longer so susceptible as in the days of the “Corpse Factory,” and the “Mutilated Belgian Babies,” and the “Crucified Canadians.”

    Your cooperation is therefore earnestly sought to distract public attention from the doings of the Red Army by your wholehearted support of various charges against the Germans and Japanese which have been and will be put into circulation by the Ministry.

    Your expression of belief in such may convince others.

    I am, Sir, Your obedient servant, (signed) H. HEWET, ASSISTANT SECRETARY

    The Ministry can enter into no correspondence of any kind with regard to this communication which should only be disclosed to responsible persons.”

    This letter is reproduced in a 1958 book entitled: Allied Wartime Diplomacy: A Pattern in Poland by Edward J. Rozek.

    The Holocaust which means ” Burnt offerings ” is the religion of the Jew NWO/Antichrist .

    It’s taught as a faith you are compelled to believe in …its catachyism universally used by the secular ,religious and Left /Right.

    It claims ” 6 million Jews where put go death “,by the Axis powers in Europe during WW 2, for a variety of reasons to fit the ignorance ,conditioning ,and prejudice of the audience.
    ,” Eugenics,,jealousy ,Paganism ,Catholics/Martin Luther, theft,Capitalism ,Socialism, Satanism ,or just because the ” Nazis where evil”.

    The foundations of Holocaustism is to put Jews above all criticism ,and replace ALL Gentile beliefs on the defense as potentially presaging a new one.

    The Jews died …666 million of them ( Jewish magic number ) for the world’s sin in not fully allowing them to rule it,according to God ( Yahweh’s ), commands.

    The same people who do not question but simply read and believe every tall tale recorded in the Old Testament, are the same people who read and believe every tall-tale connected with the holohoax. With both sets of tall tales being the product of the Jewish mind which apparently remains unchanged over the past 4,000 years.

    Hitler saved Germany and the world from Communism by attacking the evil USSR. FDR and Churchill prolonged the misery of Communism another half a century by siding with USSR which resulted in “Cold War”. Billions were spent on ICBMs etc during the “Cold War” which could have spent for uplifting the living conditions of the billions on this planet.

    ONE THIRD (of those who have been taught in schools about it) doubt the orthodox holocaust storyline, according to ADL poll.

    “Only 54 percent of the people surveyed by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) in a massive, global poll have ever heard of the Holocaust. Even more disturbing, 32 percent of these believe the event to have been greatly exaggerated or a myth.”

    Elie admits his true stories never happened

    In his autobiography, Wiesel recounts a time when, visiting Israel, he went to see the “young” Rebbe of Wizhnitz, whose father he remembered with reverence from his childhood. At the end of the visit, which took two pages (273-75) to tell, the Rebbe questioned the young writer without being satisfied with his answers. Then:
    The conversation became more relaxed. He asked me about my work. He wanted to know if the stories I told in my books were true, had they really happened. I answered not too convincingly: “In literature, Rebbe, certain things are true though they didn’t happen, while others are not, even if they did.”
    I would have loved to have received his blessing.1
    Notice that he first says he is writing “literature”2, not faithful accounts of his own experience.

    These passages are the foundation of Israel’s “SELF written deed” to the land of Palestine.
    If they are not ALL true, then the entire book THEY WROTE, IS NOT TRUE.
    Why are land claims BASED ON GENOCIDE and WAR CRIME even considered?!

    Deuteronomy 7:16, 20:16 “And thou shalt consume all the peoples which the Lord thy God shall deliver unto thee; thine eye shall not pity them…thou shalt save alive nothing that breatheth.”

    KILL THE SICK and CRIPPLED

    Deuteronomy c.2 v.34 People of Heshbon
    Deuteronomy c.3 v.6 really the whole chapter. threescore cities

    OCCUPY YOUR VICTIM’S DWELLINGS/LAND
    Numbers c.21 v.25

    Jews SELF-anointed “The CHOSEN People of GOD”
    Nazis SELF-anointed “The CHOSEN People of GENETICS”.
    TODAY Israel states that it is creating “A PURE Jewish State”
    YESTERDAY the Nazis were creating “A PURE German State”
    And they utterly destroyed all that was in the city, both man and woman, young and old, and ox, and sheep, and ass, with the edge of the sword . . . (Joshua 6:21)

    The Baltic countries are beautiful. I visited there several times. Riga and Tallinn are two of the most beautiful cities in the world in my opinion. I love those cities.

    When Germany and the USSR signed the non-aggression pact, Germany wanted the Baltic countries to be free and independent, but the USSR would only sign if Germany agreed to a secret protocol (the contents of which was only released at the last moment) and that protocol was the handing over of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania (minus German Memel, my mother’s hometown) to the USSR.

    When the Soviets (Jews) moved in these countries lost huge portions of their small populations. Hundreds of thousands were sent to Siberia and Kazakhstan, thousands of miles away, many never heard from again and some came back decades later after the war. The Jews that founded the Soviet Union dominated the Soviet Secret police, the NKVD and they were the torturers and murderers.

    When German troops arrived in these countries, people took revenge on the Jews, just as what happened in Ukraine. Their young men also joined up with the Waffen-SS to fight for their countries independence.

    It would be only fair to note that these countries were a part of the Russian Empire before 1919 and they were the most prosperous part of the empire. They each had large German populations and working together with the ethnic natives and Russians there, these were advanced areas. Many Russians may have viewed these areas as there’s, but after 1917 the USSR was a Jewish empire run for them.

    Like many places in Europe, the Jewish murderers were despised and that is why the overblown, exaggerated and lied about “holocaust” occurred..

    Regarding my earlier comment containing a quoted letter from the British government Ministry of Information by Assistant Secretary Hewet, dated February 29, 1944, I have just read further information suggesting that the letter might have been false information deliberately designed to show up as non-genuine, so please treat that quoted letter with great caution, as on VNN, one correspondent says there never was an Assistant Secretary Hewet.
