If I lived to be 110 I'd feel like a bag of bones and wouldnt mind going

Rest in peace. You've earned it..

I survived the holocaust by being born decades after and not being Jewish.

110? She must have thought life was a gas!
 
2014-02-23 08:22:44 PM  
Pffft, like the Holocaust even happened.
 
2014-02-23 08:22:51 PM  
I'll have to watch the film about her.  Her life sounds interesting.

When 110 years old you age, look as good you will not, hm?

Yep . . .  this item is notable - because she was a remarkable person, but I wouldn't give it the "sad" tag.  At that age, she was just asking for it!

FTA: "We all came to believe that she would just never die," said Frederic Bohbot

Yikes ! !   A zombie ! !

I guess now the Holocaust deniers can claim that it didn't happen because there is no one who remembers it.

No kidding.  I see 60-years-olds every week in worse shape than her.

The Jews are hardly the largest group of holocaust victims, despite what 70 years of media and rewritten history would have you believe.

Seriously? She was the oldest survivor not the last survivor.

I understand she wasn't a big fan of tattoos.

RIP, you great old broad - you have earned your stars.

Hitler has been dead for almost 70 years. You won.

Yes, I would.

2014-02-23 09:09:59 PM  
Good. Tired of the Holocaust bullshiat. The fact that it's remembered while more recent atrocities are ignored just goes back to the whole chosen people myth.

The Holocaust gives excuse for Jews to be assholes.

Well, as far as reasons to be an asshole goes, I'd say surviving the Holocaust would be a good one.

So what's yours?

I could be wrong, but you kind of sound like you are unaware of the ongoing and presently happening war atrocities, genocide campaigns, and ethnic cleansings currently happening. Like right farking now.

Or do those not count because the victims haven't had enough movies made about them?

"Oscar-nominated?"  Not anymore.  Holocaust movies are already pretty sure bets, and the death of the subject upgrades it to "Oscar-winning" pretty definitely.

You said it quite well. She will live on through her film. She lived long enough to see it completed and its nomination for an Oscar.

Exactly.  You'd think there would be some eye witnesses if it did.  Show me just one that would be willing to have an interview.

And why do we not get to hear the Nazi's side of the story?

Jews own the media and they continue to push their agenda. I mean really, I've heard better yarns coming out of North Korea.

And just how many of them have purpose-built facilities for mass murder made just for them, where all other industries and business yield to their logistics? I'll wait.

OK, sorry, but it is not sad when someone lives to a hundred freaking ten.

Oh, and I hate all the anti-Semetic libtards in here.

That is all.

FTA :

As a girl, she met the author Franz Kafka and delighted in the stories he told.


She remembered Kafka saying, "In this world to bring up children: in this world?"


How Kafkaesque.

So corporate compliance and the level of dedicated infrastructure is a delineation point for you on validity of the horrors of genocidal horrors? That's some weapons grade rationalization right there.

Oh, and since EVERY global corporation doing business with ANY state practicing any of the aforementioned atrocities is 'yielding to their logistics', the answer is: lots.

But keep feeling special, I'm sure all the other people currently dying will feel better knowing your feelings are more hurt than theirs because you think their executions aren't as well organized.

Oh, and frankly, I was hoping the poster I was responding to was gonna come back and say something like 'no you ass, I meant nobody, including those currently suffering, should ensure what she did'.

But, as I suspected, some twatwaffle was going to go into 'but my genocide was worse because reasons' mode. And you are that guy apparently.

Rwandan genocide.  1,000,000 Tutsi and Hutus killed in 100 days amounting to approximately 20% of the entire country's population (to compare, the Holocaust killed 6,000,000 Jews, or 17,000,000 in total if you take into account all events post-Kristallnacht, but that was over 7-8 years).  Planned by the government that started with a planned assassination, and a planned militarization of the civilian population so that they could kill their Tutsi and Hutu neighbors.  No purpose built facilities, but at the time it wasn't necessary when you had a truck full of AK-47s in every neighborhood and anyone could get one by producing their ID card proving they weren't Tutsi.

Cambodian genocide under the reign of Pol Pot.  The "killing fields" and the extermination of the Cham Muslim minority.  Forced relocation into forced labour camps.  The mass murder of close to 3,000,000 people in four years.  The purging of "professional" classes such as doctors, lawyers, and teachers.

Darfur.  Right now. estimated hundreds of thousands at the moment, but unclear because it's still going on.  Establishment of forced labour and concentration camps.  Purging of non-Arabs.

You don't need purpose built facilities to have a genocide on your hands.  The Holocaust is the most famous and the most chilling of these, but don't think for a second that it was the last.
