NEVER FORGET

68 years ago, US Army units entered the Buchenwald concentration camp. This is what they saw:

Deformed by malnutrition, a Buchenwald prisoner leans against his bunk after trying to walk. Like other imprisoned slave laborers, he worked in a Nazi factory until too feeble.

As German officers and Weimar civilians bear witness, after Buchenwald's liberation, to atrocities committed at the camp, a dummy in striped prisoner garb hangs from a gallows — a gruesome demonstration of one of the many public ways that inmates were murdered at the camp.

Story to Remember:
In the 1920s and 1930s Germany was the most advanced society on Earth in terms of science, technology, philosophy and the arts; every single German Jew who went to the concentration camps was a full citizen of that country - many of whom served their country honorably in the First World War - all of whom arrived in those death camps by obediantly complying with the laws of their land.

Lesson learned:
When the Government says "We are hear to help you," - NEVER trust!

The Israeli monument in front of the Headquarters building at Dachau Concentration Camp says:

  1. Oh my God....Photo number 5, the fellow in the lower right corner....looks just like a guy in our small town.
    Whenever I see photos like this; I seem to "glaze" over. But seeing that familiar face...whoa! It now really does seem real.
    I hope and pray that God will be swift in His return and take us out of this madness that man has created.

  3. Fortunately, all those people in the camp pictures -- and all the other "Work Shall Make You Free" camps -- were not allowed by the Government to own firearms. If they'd had guns, they'd just have got hurt. Gun Control is good.

    Isn't it?

  4. You don't have to look very hard at some of the other comment pages (Huff post & MSN come to mind) to realize that there are more than a few people in our society that would happily reopen those camps & fill with Christians & Jews.
