Judging from the headline, few of us can attest to what this man did.

It is impossible for me to fathom the depths of emotion that the liberators of those camps must have experienced.

As someone who has walked through the camps and has also talked to survivors in English and German, fark you, fark you and all the other deniers with a rusty spoon. If a genie was to grant me one wish it would be to eliminate such people from the gene pool, such inability to learn from the horrors of our own history is probably the worst part of humanity.

Another thank you.  And another fark you to the deniers.

The exchange with the little boy cowering behind the mound was the kicker.  Glad I wear waterproof mascara.

RIP, good man.

They'd eat forever. If it wasn't forbidden.

Legitimate question since more Gentiles died in the camps then the Jews. I guess they need better pr people

It's almost like a person might ask for a specific group of people they can help in a dire situation with limited resources due to close cultural, religious and language ties so as to maximize their ability to aid through the use of a skills and knowledge largely unique to them.

But, no, I'm sure you're right. It's probably safe to assume he was just being a racist dick.
 
2013-03-27 08:26:36 AM  
Buchenwald? Let's be honest. The real victims are the people here who had difficulty clicking on a New York Times link.

Yeah but it *was* the general thinking of two generations ago (and one still very much alive in many parts of the world today): your clan comes first. Never mind countries. Never mind mixing (the sacrilege!). When push comes to shove, you take care of your own. And your priest/whatever determines who 'your own' are.

His father, Pincus, was a seventh-generation shochet, or ritual slaughterer

I take it that that his name "Schacter" is a variant of "schochet".

A little ironic, don't you think?.

I'm not sure if this post is just narrow minded or the greatest troll in a holocaust thread evar.

Also, why not use that wish to make the holocaust never happen? Seems like a waste.

With WWll and holocaust America wouldn't have risen to a superpower. It's best for the world that America is powerful as it is. It's a shame the Zionists used what happened for thier own gain thou.

"What difference does it make?" Lulek, who was 7, said. "I'm older than you, anyway."

"Why do you think you're older?" Rabbi Schacter asked, smiling.

"Because you cry and laugh like a child," Lulek replied. "I haven't laughed in a long time, and I don't even cry anymore. So which one of us is older?"



Well, damn.

I was 'fortunate' enough to visit Buchenwald in 1991, not long after the reunification of Germany.  At that time the museum at the camp was still the one that had existed for the East Germans to visit.  It focused on the plight of the anti-fascist insurgents who had been imprisoned there, along with the Communists and the Catholics and the Gypsies.  I could find the word "Jew" or "Jewish" in only one single display in the entire museum, and that was a passing reference to Jewish children who were freed from the camp along with the other classes of children.  As sickening as the camp would have been in its own right, the fact that the East Germans had then whitewashed their history was even more repulsive.

If I recall correctly, a few years later, they found thousands of bodies in mass graves in the forests around the camp.  But the graves dated to the period AFTER the war, and were the bodies of undesirables disposed of by the Soviet / East German regime.

/and for any of you deniers who aren't just trolling for the lulz, fark you too.

The Japanese made sure we were part of WWII regardless of what the Germans did.

I'm just sayin ghtat if you hate the holocaust so much that you would like to kill everyone who denied its existence you might want to use your one magical wish to make the thing you hated not exist. See, my way, 6,000,000 people not involved in the war don't have to die. That doesn't mean germany still wouldn't invade Poland...

One could argue that the holocaust was in the long term good for the Jews/Zionists. They get a free pass to do what they want in thier illegal nation.
