  • 1941: Not Shaike Iwensky, “standing in line to be killed”

    On this day in 1941, seventeen-year-old Shaya “Shaike” Iwensky came within seconds of being shot by the Einsatzgruppen outside the city of Daugavpils, Latvian SSR. Sheer dumb luck — and a slight miscalculation by the Germans — saved his life. Shaike was born and raised in Jonava, Lithuania and fled to Daugavpils with his brother when the Germans invaded the Soviet Union in June 1941. On June 29, he was arrested along with the other Jewish male adults in town. His brother, who was fifteen years old, was arrested alongside him, but released the same day because of his age....
  • The Lid Exposed Helen Thomas A Decade Ago-And The MSM Is Still Protecting Her

    The Lid Blog ^ | 4 June 2020 | Jeff Dunetz
    There were two valuable lessons I learned in the process of “outing” Helen Thomas as a hater ten years ago today. The first was the importance of making sure what a post is accurate because it can ruin someone’s career (what I posted was correct, and it ruined Ms. Thomas’ career). The other lesson is that mainstream media will do and say anything to protect one of their own. They protected her ten years ago, and many of them are still protecting her. Lid took down Helen Thomas. My “association” with Helen Thomas began Friday, June 4th, 2010, when a...

    On this date in 1962, the architect of the Final Solution received such justice as could be meted to him on earth at Israel’s Ramla Prison. Adolf Eichmann, the vacuum cleaner salesman turned SS Obersturnbannfuhrer, remains the only person judicially executed in the history of modern Israel, whose intelligence services kidnapped him from Argentina where he had settled after the war.
  • GENE SIMMONS SHOWN MOM’S NAZI VICTIM STATEMENT

    05/05/2020 7:21:53 PM PDT · by nickcarraway · 28 replies
    Gene Simmons was shown documents relating to his mother’s release from a Nazi concentration camp 75 years after it happened, including the victim impact statement she wrote. Flora Klein was 19 when American troops liberated the Mauthausen camp on May 5, 1945, three days before the end of World War II in Europe. She and her Jewish family had been subject to Nazi Germany’s attempts to wipe out her race; she was the only member of her family to survive. She died at 93 in 2018. Simmons' reaction to the documents, discovered by Bild, was revealed to mark the anniversary....
  • Iran Challenges Europe to Hand Over Holocaust 'Proof'

    TEHRAN (AFP) - An Iranian government-sponsored body set up to probe the veracity of the Holocaust has challenged Europe to hand over documents about the mass slaughter of Jews in World War II. Mohammad Ali Ramin, the head of the "World Holocaust Foundation" created after Iran's controversial Holocaust conference last year, said Austria, Germany and Poland in particular should supply documents. "They should hand over the proof for the dossier on the organized massacre of Jews in Europe during World War II to the independent international fact-finding committee affiliated to this foundation," the IRNA state news agency quoted him as...

    Direct IBM involvement in Holocaust revealed By Edwin Black, Special To 'The Jerusalem Post' WASHINGTON (March 27) - Recently discovered Nazi documents and Polish eyewitness testimony make it clear IBM's alliance with the Third Reich went far beyond its German subsidiary. During the rape of Poland and the Holocaust there, which killed millions and plundered a nation, IBM technology was a key factor. That custom-tailored technology was provided not through the German subsidiary, but directly through a new special Polish subsidiary reporting to IBM New York, mainly at its headquarters at 590 N. Madison Ave. in Manhattan. When the Nazis...
  • Grondahl: For Holocaust Survivor Hedi McKinley, Turning 100 in a Pandemic Is a Tough Time to Pause

    You can save the sentimental claptrap on turning 100 for some other centenarian. Hedi McKinley, who hits triple digits on Wednesday, is not interested in any sort of triteness. She is a Holocaust survivor and a woman who has looked evil in the eye and never blinked. “I didn’t expect to make it to 100, but here I am,” she said. “I don’t know why anybody wants to live this long. The world isn’t such a wonderful place, but I don’t know what the alternative is.” She spoke by phone Saturday from her apartment in Beverwyck, an independent senior community...

    Academic Emergency Medicine ^ | Mar 2002 | Joel Martin Geiderman, MD
    Physician complicity in, and indeed responsibility for, certain Nazi crimes against humanity has been well documented in books and treatises by historians and other scholars. The Nuremberg Doctors’ Trial provided the first public examination of these acts, but has subsequently been criticized for its narrow focus on a relatively small number of defendants. For the better part of 50 years, mainstream medical literature all but ignored this subject (a notable exception being the article by Leo Alexander, a physician consultant at the Nuremberg trial, which appeared in the New England Journal of Medicine in 1949. Part of this agnosia was...

    An 88-year-old Holocaust survivor suffering from coronavirus reportedly became the first person in Israel to die from the illness. Arie Even, who immigrated to Israel from Hungary in 1949, contracted the virus while staying in an assisted living facility where several of the residents have tested positive for COVID-19, according to Haaretz. “He was a beloved and dear man, lived a full life, was dedicated to his family, and showed strength until his very last moments,” his son said in a statement to the newspaper.
  • ‘Missing the mark’: Ex-Warren staffers face outrage over campaign tattoos eerily similar to Holocaust concentration camp numbers

    Former staffers for Elizabeth Warren have been taken to the woodshed over tattoos meant to memorialize her ill-fated campaign – which just happen to closely resemble markings given to Holocaust concentration camp prisoners. Oops! Intending to commemorate the Democratic senator’s failed bid for the presidency, at least two former Warren staffers thought tattoos displaying the hex code for the campaign’s “Liberty Green” theme would be a clever tribute – until Twitter caught wind of it. In an avalanche of criticism, netizens wasted no time in pointing out the obvious – albeit accidental – reference to Nazi atrocities proudly displayed by...

    ... On Thursday, the memorial site will be visited by the most senior Muslim figure to date: Sheikh Mohammed al-Eissa, the secretary general of the Muslim World League, who represents over a billion Muslims worldwide. Al-Eissa, who previously served as Saudi justice minister, will make his way to the former camp with David Harris, the director of the American Jewish Committee (AJC). This joint visit by a high-ranking 54-year-old Islamic scholar and a 70-year-old descendant of Holocaust survivors is nothing short of remarkable.

    In my last column, "Newsweek Hits a New Low," I wrote about Newsweek's dishonest description of what I had said on one of my weekly PragerU "Fireside Chats." A viewer had asked me to respond to a statement Anne Frank made in her epic Holocaust diary. Frank said, "Despite everything, I believe that people are really good at heart." The Newsweek headline, "Conservative Radio Host Ridicules Anne Frank," was simply a lie. In order for readers to appreciate the level of mendacity, I had my entire response transcribed and placed it in the column.A few days later I received a...
  • Grave of top Nazi leader Reinhard Heydrich opened in Berlin

    BBC ^ | 12-16-19 | BBC
    Berlin police are trying to find out who opened the unmarked grave of SS officer Reinhard Heydrich, a top Nazi killed by Czechoslovak agents in 1942. An employee at the Invalids' Cemetery in central Berlin found on Thursday that the grave had been opened. No bones were removed, police say. Heydrich was a key organiser of Nazi Germany's mass murder of European Jews. He chaired the Wannsee Conference in January 1942, where Hitler's genocidal "Final Solution" was planned. Tampering with a grave can be prosecuted under a German law against "grave defilement".

    President Donald Trump has achieved more concrete progress for blacks, gays, and Jews than any other American president.That claim is sure to be disputed, if not mocked, by those for whom grievance and identity politics are a profession or a psychological crutch.Yet it remains true — and was thrown into sharp relief this week, as the Jussie Smollett case turned from one of the most horrific attacks in recent memory to the worst hate crime hoax in history.There are two reasons the media, Hollywood, and the Democratic political elite believed Smollett’s claims.First, he belongs to several victim categories: black, gay,...

    Wednesday night at York University in Toronto, members of the group Students Against Israeli Apartheid (SAIA) assaulted Jewish students attempting to attend a pro-Israel event at the university. A group of Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) reservists came to York to speak to students and the public about their experiences in the army. This simple act caused the anti-Israel group on campus to conduct a “no killers on campus” campaign in which they not only disrupted the event but attempted to smear the reputation of multiple IDF soldiers by photoshopping them into violent situations. Many protestors yelling in the hallways to...

    It was 1944. Martin Gelb, an orthodox Jew from Brooklyn, was behind Nazi lines with a .45 and a Tommy gun. “I was asked to do a lot of strange things, but you follow orders. It did get a little crazy,” the 100-year-old OSS veteran from Hudson, N.H., told the Herald last week. He was part of William “Wild Bill” Donovan’s small crew of intelligence operatives working with the French resistance, hunting down German scientists and rounding up war criminals. He was an expert radio operator who knew Morse code and International Morse code who slipped into France and Germany...
