The Holocaust Just Got More Shocking

THIRTEEN years ago, researchers at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum began the grim task of documenting all the ghettos, slave labor sites, concentration camps and killing factories that the Nazis set up throughout Europe.
What they have found so far has shocked even scholars steeped in the history of the Holocaust.
The researchers have cataloged some 42,500 Nazi ghettos and camps throughout Europe, spanning German-controlled areas from France to Russia and Germany itself, during Hitler’s reign of brutality from 1933 to 1945.
The figure is so staggering that even fellow Holocaust scholars had to make sure they had heard it correctly when the lead researchers previewed their findings at an academic forum in late January at the German Historical Institute in Washington.

Anyone who doesn’t studied history is doomed to repeat it.
If you wonder why the tin foil hats are crazed about the size and power of Gooferment, read this. Talk to those who have lost their entire families for being scapegoats!
I had that conversation when I was young. I was confused so I talked to my teacher, a Christian Brother, and he told me that not only was it true, but he’d seen it first hand. And, that was one of the reasons he became religious. He talked to the class about it and said that when we disrespect anyone’s beliefs were on the same path. Made an impression.
I don’t have to agree with you, like you, but I must always respect the Zero Aggression Principle. First do no harm! Because I want the same for myself and every human being.
Even if they believe in the Flying Spaghetti Monster as the “Creator”.
Hey, they could be right or wrong, that’s no reason to disrespect the rights of others.
I remember that as on top of the report cards. (One of the few things I get a good grade in!)
This story tells why it was!
