75 Years after the Liberation
of Auschwitz

Original Article

On January 27, 1945, the Red Army took control of Auschwitz away from the Nazis, where more than one million Jewish victims were liquidated that comprised roughly 1/6 of all the murders committed during the Holocaust. Unlike the Operation Reinhard death camps of Treblinka, Sobibor, Belzec, Majdankek, and Chelmo, which saw almost two million murders combined, Auschwitz functioned as both a concentration and a death camp. After the Operation Reinhard death camps had largely exterminated Polish Jewry by 1943, and since they had started to become a liability with the war effort swinging in favor of the Red Army, Auschwitz, located farther to the west, began killing more

A horrible example of what a few crazy people can do. We smirk at our totally demented members of Congress but can only imagine what they would do if they ever had complete control. Note to self, Buy More Ammo.

Could someone calculate the cost Germany caused the entire planet in the 20th Century? How much could have been invested in reducing human misery and advancing society? While it's convenient to blame a single event or a small group of evil fanatics the consistent and repeated behavior of a people might be ascribed to a culture. Russia, the middle east, China and North Korea, Africa? I wonder if it has anything to do with religion?

lftrny -- Anyone can try to estimate the resultant cost of Germany's actions in WW2, including you. If you're interested beyond a musing in a comment thread, do a web-search for the answer. In all of human history the information necessary to doing so has never been more commonly available than now. Mountains of research findings are yours just by querying a database. Religion, culture, human misery and society... These are huge subjects, in which people make careers learning about small pieces of them. Instead of asking enormous open-ended questions, why not pick one, try to answer it, and then post the answer you found? Perhaps then you'd be able to initiate a conversation that'd produce some substance for its participants. Here's a small contribution: Obviously religion was a factor in the Holocaust. Judaism is a religion, not a race. Hitler admired islam, particularly its seamless integration of political power with religious dogma. He allied with Arabs in the Middle East during WW2, and even sought their advice about handling Jews effectively. The Nazis systematically and ruthlessly attacked Christians and Christianity, as did the Soviets and their socialist brethren, and they're still doing it today, for the same reason: religion challenges the power of the state.

We no longer teach history in our schools. Although we do teach how evil the United States is. And more important is we should be teaching in detail the History and politics of WWII as is is the single largest conflict in world history. Estimates of deaths including civilians and military run from a minimum of 60,000,000 to 85,000,000 total. Civilian deaths account for at least two thirds if not 80% of the total. The Nazis murdered approximately six million Jews and at lease another five million made up of Eastern Europeans, Gypsies, Mentally Ill and handicapped individuals. The point is, if you do not learn from History you are doomed to repeat it and I feel we are doomed to repeat it. The term Nazi is used constantly on a daily basis by the left. They don't have a clue what a Nazi really was!

I disagree with the author regarding intentionalism vs functionalism, I fail to see where the functionalism concept requires more a more complex set of assumptions. As a matter of fact I see that unfolding before our eyes right here in River City. I don't think our progressive neighbors have the complete annihilation of constitutionalists in mind, but I see a slippery slope and incremental slide in progress. Just wait, left unabated, the progressive movement will destroy capitalism. Once they suffer the economic devastation that is the inevitable outcome of destroying the producers in society, they'll still see constitutional capitalists as the cause. Then look out. They already don't hesitate to destroy the lives of the political opposition, they have transitioned from seeking to defeat the opposition in elections to destroying them. Is killing that hard to see on the horizon? Que up CCR Bad Moon Rising here____

Take AOC and Gramps and pin their eyelids wide open and force them to see the horror of the Holocaust. Photos, films, the piles of human bodies including children, skulls and bones, and piles of shoes the people were forced to removed just prior to being killed as they fell into the mass grave pits. Have that Swedish climate change brat have a look just in case she isn't aware I only wonder why God did not Intervene and burn the Nazis alive for doing what they did.

#4 thanks for your passionate input but I guess you missed the point that a people's culture seems to be unchanging and maybe should be the base factor in dealing with them. Like the historical pride and superiority that drove the Germans. Not unlike the tone of your post.

Oh yes, the master plan was there alright. After recruiting and brainwashing his top people and taking over the minds of the Germans by force of will, Hitler began breeding blond haired, blue eyed children by fathering them with SS Troopers to create the master race. His VW cars and plans for giant trains convinced them that Germans were already superior and they loved the concept. Jesse Owens victories in the 1936 Olympics drove Hitler the rest of the way to insanity. They gathered all of the civilian weapons under threat of death before Krystalnacht. The trains systematically rounded up Jews and "misfits" from all over Europe and "processed" them through the death camps. Hitler was fascinated by the cult of Islam and by the Occult, which may or may not have included Satan worship. There were Germans who saw Hitler for what he was but all followed him out of fear. One could argue that it was lack of religion that caused WW2 and the Holocaust. The true cost will remain an open estimate because one can not possibly know what the millions of murdered people would have contributed to the world. We have many historical reference examples of large groups following one fanatic because they are made to feel "special." I cite Jim Jones, L. Ron Hubbard, Mohammed, Joseph Smith, Charles Manson, Fidel Castro, Pol Pot, Hugo Chavez, Idi Amin, the NK Kims and others.

Watched a show on the History Channel the other day and there were piles of eye glasses, suitcases, gold teeth(extracted from Jewish Death Camp Casualties), piles of shaved victims hair(to be used for whatever the Nazi murderers designated?) Victim survivors commented on the Cattle Cars used to transport Jews to the Death Camps etc. When the Americans came to a particular Camp to free the people the surviving member's pounded on the chests of the soldiers screaming despairingly: Why didn't you come sooner! The Evil the Nazi's and Hitler did was unbelievable to all especially the actual surviving victims?

The late Hollywood director George Stevens was in charge of doing all the filming as each camp was liberated. It so scarred him that when he returned to Hollywood to pick up his career, he never made another comedy, only dramas. It's a Wonderful Life was one of those movies he made upon his return. The dark nature of that movie was basically a look into Stevens very soul after the war. Several of Hollywood's most iconic movies were made after the 5 Hollywood directors came back from doing their part to support the war effort. Netflix has some great documentaries on their streaming right now, regarding the 5 directors who went to war, and also some new documentaries regarding nazis and some of the prison camps. I know everybody is angry with Netflix, but believe me, Obama and company are just a TINY part of that company. They offer some fascinating and educational documentaries about that era of our nation's history along with some great entertainment if you avoid the category Netflix Original programming.

I am old enough to have had the opportunity to meet and talk with several Auschwitz and other Holocaust survivors. There were once thousands of European Holocaust survivors that had immigrated to the U.S. after the war. Now there are very few left.

I am hardly a holocaust 'denier' but reading a contemporary account am curious. That particular camp survivor and other accounts advanced the idea that victims weren't shoved into the ovens as much as left to die of malnutrition and disease and then... shoved into the ovens. That doesn't negate the role of Zyclon B or the many psychopaths who manned the camps and committed atrocities by other means of course.

I visited Dachau once, on a freezing, dreary January day. Nothing could have prepared me for what I saw and what I felt -- and Dachau was a concentration camp and not one of those train-fed murder factories.like Auschwitz, which were vastly worse! It´s not easy to get to the Dachau camp. One takes a train from the Munich Hauptbanhoff to the train station in Dachau, which is a lovely, leafy suburb of Munich. Two busses run to the camp every day, and the Germans on board the busses can hardly contain their contempt for Americans and Brits and Frenchmen, et al. who go to that place to look evil in the eye. The museum was comprehensive and absolutely excellent. One barrack and one crematorium still stand as witnesses to what happened there, in a lovely suburb of a beautiful city! In the 1930s the Germans were almost certainly the best-educated and most cultured people on the planet. If they can fall for an Austrian nutter, then any nation can fall for a spellbinding devil.. I realized at that place the the Naziis weren´t monsters: they were somebody´s neighbor, or husband, or father. How could the Germans (of all people) fall for Hitler and Goebbels, and Leni Riefenstahl. Those who have the opportunity should visit one of the camps. It´s HARD!! But you´ll never take your freedom for granted again, never. Prayers for all who died, and for those who managed to survive.

Like #20 I visited Dachau in the winter time back in 1975 when I was backpacking through Europe. I beheld a photo there that brings on tears each time I recall it: a pretty young mother carrying a baby was hurrying along while her young son (~5) followed behind with a smile on his face, he thought it was play time. They were headed to the "showers". I'm having trouble finishing this but need to say that a world that has done this not just once but many millions of times and treats it like nothing has to be soulless (what amount of money, power, land, etc. is worth the butchering of even one innocent?) while we with souls must not only somehow bear it but figure out how to stop it, with our lives if necessary, now and forever and ever or there can never truly be Peace in this life or the next.

Rose, who played from 1963 to 1986, holds major league records for games played (3,562), at bats (14,053), hits (4,256), and singles (3,215). He had a lifetime batting average of .303. Those are Hall of Fame numbers. But the player known as “Mr. Hustle” has never been inducted into Cooperstown because of a scandal that marred his post-player career.

Joe Biden brought his “No Malarkey” tour to a New Hampshire debate stage on Friday night.

Rose, who played from 1963 to 1986, holds major league records for games played (3,562), at bats (14,053), hits (4,256), and singles (3,215). He had a lifetime batting average of .303. Those are Hall of Fame numbers. But the player known as “Mr. Hustle” has never been inducted into Cooperstown because of a scandal that marred his post-player career. In 1989, three years after his retirement, Rose was kicked out of baseball amid accusations that he bet on baseball games while playing for and managing the Cincinnati Reds.

The year the Oscars had its highest viewership, Titanic won best picture. That was 1998, when the broadcast drew in 55.25 million viewers. “A billion people tuning in to see,” Billy Crystal sang in his opening monologue. A small fraction of a billion, perhaps, but the claim wasn’t as ludicrous then as it would be now. The Oscars had its worst year ever in 2018, with a measly viewership of 26.5 million. The following year’s host-less Oscars saw a slight bump to 29.6 million — though it’s still a far cry from years past. Host-less again, the Oscars might expect to see a similar bump in numbers this year.
