SS guards dumping bodies into mass grave in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp I have been watching with increasing dismay, and disgust, at the Trump-hating hordes invoking terms such as “Hitler,” “Nazis” and “concentration camps’ to show their opposition to the Trump Administration. Making absurd and outrageous comparisons shows very sloppy thinking, and it only increases the hysteria that the Democrats are creating about our immigration policy. Here is a “gem” from Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Dummy): Dem CT Sen Blumenthal: This policy of family separation reminds us of the cattle cars of Nazi Germany when children were separated from their parents and marched to supposed showers..it reminds us of all the darkest periods in American history..it should be stopped right away....

Today is Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day. With all the unspeakable evil of that time, there were also shining examples of humanity and love. This is one of those stories: Via Times of Israel: Truus Wijsmuller saved thousands of Jews in WWII. Why has no one heard of her? ….Other rescuers are household names: Steven Spielberg made a Hollywood film about Oskar Schindler. Streets in countries worldwide are named for Raoul Wallenberg. Nicholas Winton was knighted by Queen Elizabeth. But few, even in the Netherlands, have heard of Wijsmuller since her death in 1978 at 82. Seventy-two years after the end of World War II, not many of the mainly German- and Austrian-Jewish children whom Wijsmuller rescued are still alive...

Maybe this is not just a case of a poor marketing idea, given the recent tension between Poland and Israel over Poland’s new “Holocaust Law,” forbidding any reference to Auschwitz and the other death camps in Poland as “Polish.” And Poland’s PM has come out with the preposterous claim that Jews were also perpetrators of the Holocaust. The socks have been renamed “Patrick” after a complaint from the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum. But I am thinking of getting a few pair, to send to Joy Behar, Ana Navarro and other idiots Libs who call POTUS and his supporters “Nazis.” Via NY Post. A Polish company is under fire for trying to sell socks that look like Adolf Hitler. The questionable...

Yesterday was International Holocaust Remembrance Day, and this video clip has been making the rounds on Twitter. Well worth the watch: Sir Nicolas Winston risked his life to save Jewish children during the Holocaust, years later the survivors gather just to say thank you, watch and you will cry #HolocaustMemorialDay pic.twitter.com/JrabiSgyrK — Yanki יענקי פרבר (@yankifarber) January 27, 2018 Holocaust ‘hero’ Sir Nicholas Winton dies aged 106

This episode of the PBS series “Finding Your Roots” is scheduled to air tonight, October 31. Via Times of Israel. In the forthcoming episode of the PBS series “Finding Your Roots,” American Jewish actress Scarlett Johansson discovers the tragic fate of her relatives who died in the Holocaust…. Johansson’s grandfather left Poland for the United States, where he worked as a grocer in New York. The PBS show used documentation from Yad Vashem to determine that his brother and family died in the ghetto…. “It’s crazy to imagine that Saul would be on the other side selling bananas on Ludlow Street. And how different it would be being in America at that time,” the 32-year-old actress says. “The fate of...

A very meaningful and touching gesture from the Duke and Duchess. Via Jewish Chronicle. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited the Stutthof concentration camp in Poland…where they met Holocaust survivors. As many as 110,000 Jews were imprisoned in Stutthof, east of Gdansk, before the camp was liberated by the Allied Forces in May 1945. The visit was part of the royal couple’s five-day tour of Germany and Poland. The Holocaust Educational Trust (HET) arranged for the Duke and Duchess to meet Manfred Goldberg and Zigi Shipper, both 87, who recounted the ordeal of life in Stutthof, where they were both imprisoned. Both men settled in north London after the war, and regularly visit schools across the UK to share...

Wait, there’s more: This Yale Ph.D (not kidding) also compares Dr. Ben Carson to a Holocaust Denier, because he says transgender people are really “men and women in disguise” – which means Carson does not treat them as “fully human.” Via College Fix. Freedom of speech must take a backseat to freedom from offense because the Holocaust happened. That’s the nutshell argument by a New York University vice provost in favor of universities blocking students and faculty from inviting controversial speakers. Ulrich Baer, who oversees faculty, arts, humanities and diversity at the elite Manhattan college, writes in The New York Times that “personal experience and testimony” can be more important than “the primacy of argument,” as evidenced by the testimony...

Today is Yom Hashoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, which falls out five days after the end of Passover, this year on Monday, April 24. Via Times of Israel. Israelis across the country paused for two minutes Monday morning in memory of the six million Jews who were murdered in Europe under Nazi rule as a siren pierced the clear blue sky in an annual marking of Holocaust Remembrance Day…. Decades after the liberation of the Nazi camps, the annual Holocaust Remembrance Day continues to be marked with solemnity in Israel, with restaurants, stores and entertainment centers closed and Holocaust-themed movies and documentaries broadcast on TV and radio….

Ugh. For a man who the press will make things up about to attack, it’s a disaster to make such a remarkably stupid comment, and on top of it all, on Passover! This is the big league, and if you actually think about making a Hitler comparison, please get it right. At this point, I’d say getting another press secretary is not a bad idea. Via NBC. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer apologized Tuesday evening after causing a firestorm for saying that Adolf Hitler “didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons” against his own people like Syrian strongman Bashar Al-Assad. Spicer, speaking from the White House podium at the daily press briefing, said that Hitler, whom he called “despicable,”...

Today is International Holocaust Remembrance Day. In honor of the millions of souls who were murdered, all the Trump-hating Dems need to stop comparing President Trump with Hitler; the “comparisons” are vile and disgusting, and trivialize the horror of all that happened during WWII. Via NY Post. Dozens of Auschwitz survivors placed wreaths and flowers Friday at the infamous execution wall of the former German death camp, paying homage to the victims of Adolf Hitler’s regime exactly 72 years after the camp’s liberation. January 27, the anniversary of the day that the Soviet army liberated the camp in German-occupied Poland in 1945, is recognized as International Holocaust Remembrance Day. Commemorative events also were being held across Europe and Israel…. Elderly...

The idea of a Holocaust-themed ice-skating routine is historically inaccurate. There was probably no ice-skating rink at Auschwitz. Just a hunch. Via NY Post. Tatyana Navka, the wife of Vladimir Putin's powerful spokesman, did a holocaust themed skating performance tonight in Russia. pic.twitter.com/XxVRn6GeIV — Yashar (@yashar) November 27, 2016 The wife of Vladimir Putin’s top spokesman has sparked international outrage over a Holocaust-inspired ice-skating routine in which she donned a death-camp uniform and mimed shooting her partner for a cheering audience. Competitive skater Tatyana Navka and her partner, Andrew Burkovsjy, glided across the ice grinning in black-and-white striped pajamas emblazoned with the Star of David and death-camp serial numbers, according to the Daily Mail. The duo performed the questionable piece...

Rob Reiner’s character on the 1970’s hit TV show All In The Family was nicknamed “Meathead.” Seems like it is still a very good name for him. His comments comparing Donald Trump to “Jewish policemen in the Warsaw ghetto” are repulsive, ignorant and extremely offensive. HT NewsBusters. But not to be outdone in the “crazy department,” ObamaCare numbers cruncher Charles Gaba posted a very disturbing clip from Schindler’s List on his blog. Via NewsBusters. There have been many liberal mental meltdowns since Donald Trump’s election last week but few of them have approached the epic proportions of ObamaCare numbers cruncher Charles Gaba…. His quick plunge into the completely unhinged began early on the first morning of the Trumpocalypse and culminated...

An amazing story of courage and faith in the face of unspeakable horrors. Via Fox News. A Holocaust heroine’s last will and testament has been unearthed in church archives in Scotland, offering a glimpse into the incredible life of Jane Haining, who died in Auschwitz in 1944. The handwritten will and previously unpublished photographs were recently found in a box in the Church of Scotland World Mission Council’s archives in Edinburgh. Haining, a Christian missionary who spoke fluent German and Hungarian, moved to Budapest from her native Scotland in 1932 to work as matron at a church-run school that provided safe haven to Jewish schoolgirls, many of whom were orphans. Advised to return home during World War II, she remained...

For most people, the name “Raoul Wallenberg” is unknown. But for anyone who is familiar with the history of the Holocaust, his name evokes admiration and gratitude…and heartache for his mysterious disappearance. Raoul Wallenberg was a Swedish diplomat who saved tens of thousands of Hungarian Jews from deportation to Nazi concentration camps. He was last seen in 1945, and his disappearance has remained a mystery. Until now: Via Telegraph. The newly-published memoirs of the first chief of the KGB may shed light on the fate of a Swedish diplomat who saved thousands of Jews from the Holocaust only to disappear in the final weeks of the Second World War. Raoul Wallenberg is honoured around the world for rescuing tens of...

**Bumped Up From TAMWire. Posted By Bamconola** Survival, hope and love have the last words against evil. When so much sadness seems to win the day, this article affirms life. Via Today. Jessica Glatt should not, by all accounts, be here. For her to be born, both her grandfather and her grandmother had to survive the Holocaust — they miraculously did, by mere chance and fate. The fact that they went on to live long enough to see the birth of their great granddaughter, Glatt’s oldest child, Harli, was so significant that the family decided to commemorate their meeting with a picture of then 3-month-old Harli holding her great grandfather’s arm, his concentration camp tattoo still etched in his skin...
