Trump on “history’s darkest hour”

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017
We traditional Southerners are a Christian people, and as such, we seek to honor our God in every way. This includes discerning the truth–and lies–of history, the unfolding of His

The Holodomor’s Bitter Harvest

Monday, March 6th, 2017

Anti-whites like to say Diversity is “freedom”

Monday, September 17th, 2012

Anti-whites like to say Diversity is “freedom” for non-Whites to enter White living space and “mix in” with whomever they wish.

However, White people are not allowed to refuse this freedom, so it is your diversity we are FORCED to accept.

If Hitler made every male Jew live in a west African nation and every female Jew live in an east African nation and they were allowed to mate with whomever they chose within those nations, would it have been genocide? Duh, yea yuh.

NO to White geNOcide!

It isn’t a law that people have to mix.

Monday, September 17th, 2012

“It isn’t a law that people have to mix.” There are laws to enforce integration in White nations, by gunpoint if needed. If Hitler made every male Jew live in a west African nation and every female Jew live in an east African nation and they were allowed to mate with whomever they chose within those nations, would it have been genocide?

Genocide is genocide, whether accomplished by bullets ,mustard gas, or mass immigration and social engineering.

Brazliian Jewish Lawmaker Sues Over ‘Nazi’ Jibe

Friday, August 31st, 2012

A Jewish politician from Brazil said he would sue a colleague for suggesting he was a Nazi.

Isaac Tayah, president of the city council of Manaus, said he would file charges in a federal court for racism, libel and defamation, according to A Crtitica, a Brazilian news site.

Earlier this month, councilman Mario Frota published in his blog a photomontage of Tayah’s face on the body of Adolf Hitler wearing a Nazi uniform.

Frota told several newspaper that it was a “bad joke,” but Tayah said he would not let it go.

“I can’t just ignore this. Even of the trial goes on for 10 years, Frota will have to answer for this,” he told A Critica. If Frota wanted to make a joke, Tayah added, “he could have presented me as a ballerina. He wanted to create a polemic.”

The umbrella organization of Jewish communities of the Brazilian state of Amazonas – the capital of which is Manaus – expressed “solidarity” with Tayah.

“Comparing Jews to Nazism is offensive to the Jewish people and religion,” a recent statement by the organization, CIAM, read. It added Tayah was a “prominent member” of the Jewish community of Amazonas.

The Wannsee Conference

Monday, August 6th, 2012

On January, 20, 1942, Reinhard Heydrich, Himmler‘s second in command of the SS, convened the Wannsee Conference in Berlin with 15 top Nazi bureaucrats to coordinate the Final Solution (Endlösung) in which the Nazis would attempt to exterminate the entire Jewish population of Europe, an estimated 11 million persons.

“Europe would be combed of Jews from east to west,” Heydrich stated.

The minutes of that meeting have been preserved but were edited by Heydrich substituting the coded language Nazis used when referring to lethal actions to be taken against Jews.

“Instead of emigration, there is now a further possible solution to which the Führer has already signified his consent – namely deportation to the east,” Heydrich stated for example when referring to mass deportations of Jews to ghettos in occupied Poland and then on to the soon-opened death camps at Belzec, Sobibor, and Treblinka.

“…eliminated by natural causes,” refers to death by a combination of hard labor and starvation.

“…treated accordingly,” refers to execution by SS firing squads or death by gassing – also seen in other Nazi correspondence in a variety of connotations such as “special treatment” and “special actions” regarding the Jews.

Which Way Western Man?

Saturday, June 23rd, 2012

When the environment changes, behavior that was so adaptive that it made a population supreme may be so maladaptive that it leads them towards extinction. Such is the case with whites, whose intra-group cooperation and altruism took them to the top, but now that they are no longer isolated from other races, their altruism is their Achilles’ heel, leaving them a mere resource to be used by others. Yet changing their innate, now maladaptive, behavior may be more difficult for them than watching their race disappear forever. To paraphrase Woody Allen’s dark humor:

We stand today at a crossroads: One path leads to a slow diminishment of our numbers, a weakening of our ability to defend ourselves, and the likely extinction of our people. The other leads to vicious conflicts with immense losses on all sides and the possible extinction of our people. Let us hope we have the wisdom to make the right choice


    The decline of the West has been lamented, 1 but warnings go unheeded and we continue to decline; indeed, our decline is accelerating. All the signs of a catastrophic collapse are there, and getting worse all the time – financing current consumption by massive foreign debt, lowering the national average IQ by subsidizing the reproduction of the less intelligent and permitting them to enter the country (La Griffe du Lion, 2005), and wasting thousands of lives and hundreds of billions of dollars on counterproductive military adventures. Struggle and suffering can make a people great, but once they have achieved greatness they flee the caldron that made them so, lose their edge, indulge in hedonism and baseness, and are no longer the equal of those who begot them.
Today, white men in the military fight all over the world, but they do not fight for the one thing that is most important to the survival of their kind – who impregnates their women. 2 They not only condone the impregnation of white women by other races, 3 they not only facilitate it, they actually celebrate it! Unless they throw off the shackles of egalitarianism and fulfill their biological destiny, there will soon be no more white babies and no more whites.
Almost nothing is as maladaptive for whites as admitting non-white immigrants and refugees into white homelands (Salter, 2002a), yet every year white elites in churches and governments bring in tens of thousands of non-whites. Our territory is lost and our gene pool is desecrated, a slow genocide of the white race, all so the white elites can gloat in their supposed moral superiority.
The closer the West moves towards the precipice, 4 the more difficult it becomes to reverse directions and save it. (Stang, A., “A Warning for America from South Africa,” Nov. 6, 2008). The West is nominally democratic, and the best survival strategy in a democracy is to form an interest group and vote yourself somebody else’s money. There are dozens of coalitions of like-benefiting people – seniors for old-age benefits, blacks for affirmative action and welfare, Jews for foreign aid and military support for Israel, trial lawyers for laws that benefit plaintiffs, farmers for agricultural subsidies, manufacturers for tariffs on imports, and so on, with the government taking a “handling fee,” which can amount to as much as 90% of the money transferred. Each coalition is a small minority, but few politicians can afford to lose their votes or campaign contributions, so the coalitions and their power increases. Everyone ends up putting the interest of his own group first, until the system collapses.5 Since no coalitions are permitted to represent the interests of the whites who made the West – that would be racism – the only solution is to reduce the power of government so that it can no longer take from one person and give to another, but that is unlikely to happen. 6
Because whites are genetically programmed to be altruistic, it is difficult for them to resist financing their own extinction. 7 Every year billions of dollars are transferred from whites to blacks, 8 subsidizing blacks and their children while whites forego, postpone, or limit childbearing because of the expense. These transfers consist not only of government welfare payments, housing subsidies, food stamps, Medicaid, aid to schools and black organizations, but international aid to Africa. In addition, individual whites make huge transfers of funds to blacks in the form of donations to black organizations and scholarships, 9 and white businesses lose money complying with affirmative action laws 10 and paying out damages for discrimination. 11 A hidden cost, which extends indefinitely into the future, is the lost opportunities that whites would have had to survive and propagate, had they helped themselves and had not aided the survival and propagation of other races, all due to egalitarianism, the greatest triumph of ideology over adaptation in man’s entire lineage. 12
A conquering tribe claims the territory, resources, and women 13 of the conquered. The massive amount of wealth transferred from whites to blacks, the ubiquitous white women with mulatto children, 14 and the tens of millions of Mexicans claiming most of the western states as their own, are the proof that whites are the vanquished.“…African-Americans … are clearly dominant over whites. There is a tremendous and continuing transfer of property, land, and women from the subordinate race to the dominant race.”


Whitney, 1999


There is no doubt that whites, in their own homelands, could not be vanquished by other races, if they only believed in their own right to exist and had the will to resist. It is their own conscience, their own decency, that has brought them down. What better way is there to destroy an enemy with a conscience than to convince him that he is the cause of the misery of others and therefore should not survive? 15 Whites have been convinced that they are evil – responsible for the poverty and suffering of others, the destruction of the environment, and the carnage of wars. Even the crimes that other races commit against whites are blamed on whites – those crimes are excused as justifiable reactions to the racism of whites. An unexpressed, but critical, thought in the mind of a white about a non-white is a thought crime – proof that whites oppress other races. Both mentally and physically, whites have been demonized, demoralized, and disarmed by the relentless self-serving anger of non-whites and their fifth column allies, white egalitarians. Since non-whites gain from the defeat of the whites, there is no one who can or will save whites but themselves.
Are there populations living today that, unlike most whites, try to preserve themselves? Yes, there are. In fact, every other population on the planet believes in its own goodness and tries to preserve itself, but the population that has done so most effectively is, perhaps surprisingly, the European Jews. They strongly discourage marriage to non-Jews, nor do they proselytize to bring non-Jews into their genetic fold. They have strong in-group amity and out-group enmity, a dual morality that is supported and justified by their religious rules, the Talmud,16 and they support policies for white countries (multiculturalism, open immigration, miscegenation, 17 civil rights) that weaken and divide their out-group, the non-Jews. 18 19 They encourage their daughters to marry the most intelligent Jews and have many children, thereby raising their average IQ to the highest of any population. 20 They have many cultural practices that increase group coherence, including their own religion, language, holidays, rituals, and even humor. They have their own clubs and organizations, even one for keeping Jewish criminals out of jail (the “Alternative Sentencing Proposals” of the ALEPH Institute). Were whites to emulate the European Jews, they would be unstoppable.
Neuroses, according to Karen Horney, (1945) are caused by unconscious conflicts. By cowering before the Equality Police, whites have internalized a conflict between their innate, now-subconscious ethnocentrism and their conscious thinking processes, which warn them that any expression of their ethnocentrism is dangerous. Thus, they act according to their ethnocentrism by avoiding other races, then use their conscious thinking to rationalize their choices, i.e., they are hypocrites. 21 This is, of course, unhealthy, as a person who has internal conflicts cannot function as well as a person who is of one mind. 22
There is some good news and some bad news. The good news is that the conflict will end when reality so blatantly conflicts with conscious thinking that the conflict can no longer be rationalized. At that time whites will have an epiphany and, in an exuberant feeling of joy and freedom, they will throw off their false view of reality and openly embrace their ethnocentrism. The epiphany will begin not with a few demoralized race realists on the fringes, who already know the score, but with a well-respected and loved leader who will stand up and say the obvious. There will be dead silence as whites wait for the Equality Police to push him down the memory hole. 23 When that does not happen, other whites will quickly agree with him because they have been waiting all their lives for a savior. The bad news is that whites may have to suffer considerably more before this happens.
In the meantime, a little push here, a bit of a nudge there, can only bring that day closer. David Davis, the Shadow Home Secretary in Great Britain, now admits that multiculturalism is not working. 24 Perhaps a prominent person in the US could do the same? (e.g., Putnam, 2007). A few college debates on the benefits of diversity, or the lack thereof, would be refreshing. How about a study showing that white mothers of mulatto children feel alienated from their children? 25 Or a bold statement by the CEO of a large company that a decline in IQ is occurring and that it is not in the national interest? A moratorium on immigration, including refugees, would probably be too much to hope for, but you never know. Or how about “Proud and confident explicit assertions of ethnic identity and interests among white people, and the creation of communities where such explicit assertions are considered normal and natural rather than a reason for ostracism.” (MacDonald, 2006).
In the final analysis, the most valuable possession whites have is their genome. They can lose territory and wealth but, if their genome is intact, they can survive and recover all that they have lost. 26 In today’s times, however, it is racist and immoral for whites to love and cherish their own racial uniqueness. So on to the precipice we go. It won’t be a pleasant descent, but the wise and well-prepared will perhaps survive and, after much suffering, will rise again.
I leave the reader with one last question to ponder: Suppose, hypothetically, of course, that the information presented in this book is mostly correct, despite being extremely politically incorrect, what action, if any, would he take?

Marion Barry: I Misspoke When I Said ‘Polacks’

Saturday, May 26th, 2012

Councilmember Marion Barry says he misspoke when he referred to the Polish community with the disparaging term “Polacks.”

Barry made the remark when he was meeting with Asian-Americans. That meeting was set up after Barry made two offensive statements last month about Asians. He later apologized.

Barry was asked Thursday about racial tensions in the United States and he said: “The Irish caught hell, the Jews caught hell, the Polacks caught hell.”

In a seven-word statement Friday, Barry says he misspoke and should have said Polish.

Does Hitler Have Enough Trained People to Fill All the Important Positions?

Wednesday, May 16th, 2012

Hitler does not intend to fill all positions with members of his own party. He has often said — and to parties and organizations that want to make their “claims” — that he will use all leading experts, men who really understand their fields,regardless of the party to which they belong. Men who have proved themselves will stay in their positions.

Hitler does not want to subject the German people to further experiments. We have had enough of the experiments of the Hindenburg parties, which brought us inflation, poverty, and economic collapse!

Čeněk Růžička: Politicians publicly compensate for weakness by crudely defaming Romani people

Tuesday, May 15th, 2012

Čeněk Růžička, chair of the Committee for the Redress of the Roma Holocaust in the Czech Republic (Výbor pro odškodnění romského holocaustu v ČR) and the organizer of the annual commemoration ceremony at Lety by Písek, criticized politicians during his speech there this year for worsening the atmosphere in society with their populism. He expressed great concern for the future. News server Romea.cz publishes his speech in full translation below.

Your Excellencies, precious guests, I bid you all good day.

This Sunday we have gorgeous weather and you certainly could all have chosen to spend time with your loved ones today instead of coming here. Please permit me to welcome you here all the more sincerely on behalf of the bereaved of the Romani victims of Nazism and to thank you for coming.

Romani and Sinti people, just like Jewish people, were all but completely slaughtered during the Second World War, and we are standing right now at one of the places where this happened. In Moravia, at Hodonín u Kunštátu, and right here, the government of the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia began running the so-called “collecting camps” 70 years ago. That is what the jailers called them. Those who survived them don’t call them anything but concentration camps. These are Romani people who survived Auschwitz, Ravensbrűck, and other concentration camps – so they know what they are talking about. In both of the camps run here during Nazism, hundreds of our people died solely because they were hated for their membership in the Romani nation.

Dear listeners, I believe you will agree with me when I say we are here to thoroughly reject the opinions of extremists and Holocaust deniers. Let’s remember the names of the victims of the most recent racist murders here as well. The suffering of the Romani people has not ended.

Ladies and gentlemen, we, the bereaved of the victims, come here year after year to call for the removal of the pig farm from this place where the members of our families perished. This year, it’s no different. I call on the politicians of this country, and those citizens who are not indifferent to its reputation: Commit yourselves to getting rid of the national shame that is a pig farm on the site of a former concentration camp. We will never release you from your responsibility in this matter. Return the victims their dignity. Make sure the Czechs do not have to be ashamed of themselves. Get rid of this shame for us. I think our country, and indirectly, Europe, really deserves this, given the facts of history.

Dear listeners, the lives of Romani people in this country are permanently threatened by neo-Nazi groups, and recently, ever-larger numbers of ordinary citizens have been joining them. They are joining them because some candidates and politicians publicly compensate for their own weaknesses by crudely defaming Romani people, with the aim of winning as many sympathizers and voters to their side as they can. Shucks, why shouldn’t they? After all, they know what works for a significant portion of the Czech electorate. They have tested this innumerable times, it’s all the same to them that they are fomenting anti-Romani hysteria in society.

In this context, we might object that there are, after all, laws to address discrimination and racially motivated attacks against Romani people. However, it is also true that those committing the discrimination and hate attacks take no notice of these laws.

The bereaved of the victims of Nazism – and I think part of the nation as well – were just as shocked as I was by the television clips broadcast online by Romea.tv showing a crowd of ordinary citizens in a town in the Šluknov foothills singing the Czech national anthem and then setting out to attack Romani families. What are we to make of this?

If it were not for the police intervention that time, there could have been fatal results. Is this how the Czech national anthem is to be treated? What am I to make of the people turned fanatics in Rotava? I was personally present for the march by the citizens of Rotava together with followers of DSSS leader Vandas and German neo-Nazis in an anti-Romani parade, where the mayor and local teachers led that march with them. How are we to raise our children in such an atmosphere?

There are more and more frustrated Romani people, and the frustration of the majority is also dangerously increasing. What might come of this? We are aware how easily the events we are commemorating here can occur.

In that context, I must recall the following: Responsibility for Romani integration, which is to say, for improving Romani lives, rests with the state and the regional authorities. They should cooperate closely, for example, by releasing EU funds for special programs. The Czech Republic is drawing several billion crowns from EU Structural Funds for addressing this area, but somehow I do not have the feeling that anything has changed for the better. I recently saw a news report that two towns had financed projects through those EU funds that have nothing whatsoever to do with the issue they are supposed to address. Who is monitoring and overseeing how that money is really spent? The EU funds’ coffers are not bottomless, after all. The problem of the coexistence of the majority with Romani people deserves the greatest attention.

Dear listeners, the chair of our newly-created Equal Opportunities Party, Mr Štefan Tišer, is here – and my colleagues and I know what will happen in relation to the Romani minority on the political scene during the upcoming elections. Because we are aware of our co-responsibility for the future development of the relationship between the majority and Romani people, I will give the floor to Mr Tišer next. Mr Tišer will take the opportunity of your presence here to publicize the party’s call to action.

Dear, precious guests, we sincerely thank you for your participation and for the beautiful flowers and we believe we will see you here again next year. After this we will go to the parish cemetery in Mirovice, where the child victims of Lety, mostly, were buried, and where the memorial has been designed to our specifications. Thank you for your patience.

Hail Moscow! by Joseph Goebbels

Sunday, May 13th, 2012

Following the celebration of the ten year anniversary of the Russian Revolution, three young Berlin communists from the Köpernick district committed suicide after they had taken a touching farewell from their comrades. They explained calmly that they had lost faith in the future of the International.

It is said of Ernst Thälmann, the communist leader, that during the Hamburg uprising he laid stone drunk in his own vomit. In Berlin-Wedding a few weeks ago, Ruth Fischer spoke at a meeting of the KPD opposition, calling for a fight against the Third International. When a representative of the KPD began to speak he was shouted down by his former comrades and thrown out the door. The affair ended in a general melee.

The tenth anniversary of the Russian Revolution was recently celebrated in Moscow. As the honored guests from the entire world who had gathered to praise Moscow’s principles watched, the opposition to the workers’ and peasants’ state stormed the gathering and took over the university. The end of the story: twelve leading Bolshevists, nearly all Jews of the old guard, were expelled from the Communist Party.

What does this all mean?

Things are becoming clear all over. The smoke of rhetoric is vanishing, and all that remains is a miserable remnant of fantasies that absolutely no one confuses with reality. The German proletariat is one hope poorer, perhaps its last one. Marx’s game is over. Nature is in charge once again, and it has made the eternal laws pitilessly and unmistakably clear: the laws of personality, struggle, and race.

Did things have to turn out this way?

Yes, a thousand times yes.

There was no other possible outcome. We have it prophesied a hundred times. If the Jews speak, the people must beware. The Jew is rootless, a ferment of decomposition. Whether he lives as a capitalist or a Bolshevist, his nature remains the same: Ahasver, the eternal destroyer. His gospel is chaos, and where he succeeds in fomenting revolution, he rises to the top. He brought the worker’s movement to its present deplorable state: a mixture of phrases, cowardice, terror and class hatred. What does the cause of the proletariat have to do with pacifism, protection of the republic, the elimination of personality and the destruction of national dignity and honor? Where is it written that utopias, wishes, programs and books rule the world instead of strength and the facts? Why do you demonstrate here for the national freedom of the oppressed colonial peoples, yet forget that Germany is a province of high finance? Why shout “China for the Chinese,” yet stand by in cowardice as the Jews sell Germany piece by piece and turn it over to the world dictatorship? You cry “Reaction” when one speaks of a lost fatherland. You smell treason when one names things by their right names. You retreat stubbornly and silently to your own troubles, and find that nothing remains but desperation and suicide.

Do not say that the First, Second or Third International is responsible! Found a new one, a Fourth! It will betray you just as its three predecessors did.

The International itself is in error. It is thought out, not lived. The Jew preaches it to you because it is his last chance to hold power. It has destroyed nations and peoples. It sets citizen against citizen, destroys and poisons the community, sows mistrust between the peoples. Above it all is the triumphant mocking laughter of your enemy, of our enemy: The eternal Jew!

You stand over hecatombs of corpses. The scent of blood surrounds you. Children beg, mothers weep, nations perish! What have you gained: Nothing but chaos, hopeless, hunger, and desperation!

It that the way you want things to remain?

Stand up and demand a Germany that belongs to you, one that is free of the chains of the oppressor. This is the historic mission of the German working class.

Freedom and prosperity!

This is the war cry against the rotting world of capitalism!

Away with the empty rhetoric! Risk looking cold reality in the face.

Hold out your hand, German working men! The day of freedom is coming, if only you want it!

Adolf Hitler is showing you the way!

When German blood and the German nature triumphed, another view naturally had to fall, one that the Jews and their allies had suggested for decades, namely that labor was the curse of God in this world. The German never saw labor as a regrettable burden, but rather always as a blessing. To eat the bread of the sweat of his brow was to him no punishment, but rather something self-evident. He had contempt for the lazy and indolent man who believed that he could live at the cost of others. It was therefore relatively easy to restore the German viewpoint in this regard. It was made even easier by the experiences of the German people before the takeover of power. It saw how nothing was fought more bitterly than the concept of labor. It was not only degraded to being a commodity, but was seen as an evil that had to be eliminated. The ideal condition was to work as little as possible, or not at all. This was achieved by the failings of the government at the time: Unemployment came to Germany. The army of the unemployed grew from day to day, millions and millions of them.

The individual who was unemployed felt how meaningless life without work is. The whole German people, however, saw that beyond the misery of the individual, a man without work loses his foundations and becomes over time a danger to the community. For these reasons, the Führer’s first task was to eliminate unemployment and once again give the German purpose and meaning for life through his labor.

The Führer was not satisfied when he achieved this goal. He wanted to free labor from the chains resulting from a shortage of raw materials. For years the Führer attempted to negotiate with England and other countries to purchase the raw materials they possessed in abundance at a reasonable price. This attempt was in vain. The hostile attitude of international high finance in London, New York, and the other power centers of the Jewish bankers, rose at times to boycotts.

After such rejection, the Führer introduced the necessary measures in the Four Year Plan to guarantee the freedom of German labor. Although this was entirely a matter of domestic German policy, plutocrats throughout the world protested. The Führer ignored them, and went his way to win the freedom of our labor.

Plutocracy has the revolution of labor not only in this area, but it was distressed to see that the Führer wanted to overturn the social order they thought self-evident.

Until the takeover of power, the manual laborer was seen as a second class citizen in Germany as well as in the rest of the world.

In National Socialist Germany, the manual laborer has become a fully equal people’s comrade.

The concept “worker,” which was earlier a sign of inferiority, is today the most honorable title of the German people! As an eternal, living monument, the Führer created the Reich Labor Service, which constantly reminds the German that honest labor is never a disgrace, but rather is always an honor. On 1 May, the whole German people comes together to honor a fundamental concept of the National Socialist world view: “Labor.”

The secretary-general of the communist party in Czechoslovakia, whom John Gunther identifies as a Jew, was Rudolph Slansky. Like the other satellite dictators, he was placed in command when the communists took over in the aftermath of WW2, Slansky, incidentally, was eventually purged by the party. On page 10 of the Dec. 10th Quick magazine Stansky is identified as the “former Red Boss” of Czechoslavakia, but he is not identified as a Jew.

John Gunther summarizes in “Behind the Iron Curtain” on the Jewish roles in the years immediately after WW2 and through the 1950s: “Jews play a very prominent role in several governments….The three “Muscovites” who run Hungary are Jews, the men who dominate Poland are Jews, the secretary general of the Communist party in Czechoslovakia is a Jew, Anna Pauker of Rumania is a Jewess.”

Poland has shared the tragic fate of Hungary. The men who dominated Poland in the years just after WW2 were the Jews, Mine, Skryesiewski, Modielewski, and Berman. The first three are of cabinet rank, while Jacob Berman’s official position was that of Under-Secretary of State – a minor office, Yet it was actually Jacob Berman who was the undisputed boss of Poland. Berman, a product of the Warsaw ghetto, had lived in Russia, and was installed as dictator over Poland when the Russian armies took over the country. He preferred to work behind the scenes as much as possible – a device frequently used to hide the Jewishness of communism, Poland’s Jewish bureaucracy was perhaps the largest of any Iron Curtain country outside of Russia proper. Although Jews comprised less than 3% of the total population behind the Iron Curtain, they occupied virtually every position of authority.

Neo-Nazis Hold Rally: Verbal Sparring But No Frankfort Arrests

Thursday, April 26th, 2012

A neo-Nazi demonstration at the state Capitol ended peacefully Saturday after more than an hour of white-separatist rhetoric and caustic shouting matches with those participating in a counterprotest.

About 50 members of the National Socialist Movement and the Ku Klux Klan brandished Nazi symbols, yelled “white power” and performed Nazi salutes from the Capitol steps as speakers called for political revolution.

Another 200 protesters — separated from the rally by a line of police — gathered on a side lawn to condemn the movement, holding up signs and chanting for the neo-Nazi demonstrators to “go home.”

But the clash never rose above insults and profanity, and the Frankfort police reported no arrests.

In the most heated moments, speakers from the neo-Nazi movement shouted rants against illegal immigrants, Jews, homosexuals and communists, and called for African Americans to return to Africa.

They accused the counterprotesters of treason against their own race and referred to them as inbred drug addicts.

“If you are black, we don’t want you back,” yelled one demonstrator.

But most of the speeches centered on policy — everything from high gas prices to education and welfare.

“The National Socialist Movement has been all over this country fighting for white civil rights,” said NSM commander Jeff Schoep. “We have a lot of support in this state, and we are going to continue to grow and expand in the state of Kentucky.”

Dozens of law enforcement officers from Frankfort police, the Franklin County sheriff’s office, Kentucky State Police and facilities security, maintained broad separation between the two groups.

Chris Hartman, who serves as director of the Fairness Campaign — which advocates for the rights of those in the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community — and helped organize the counterprotest, said people from more than a dozen social and advocacy organizations showed up to condemn the rally.

One waved a sign the read “nerds against hate.” Another read “no human being is illegal.”

SA Jews call for firing of pro-Nazi banker

Wednesday, April 25th, 2012

PRETORIA, South Africa – The South African Israel Public Affairs Committee (SAIPAC) called on Sunday for the director of the South African Reserve bank to be fired from his post because of his pro-Nazi opinions.

In interviews and articles last week Stephen Goodson expressed his admiration for the Nazi regime, and claimed that the Holocaust was a “huge lie.”

Speaking at the Holocaust Remembrance Day ceremony held in Pretoria on Sunday, David Hersch, head of SAIPAC, called on the South African Reserve Bank to release Goodson immediately from his public position.

“Goodson should be fired immediately or made to resign immediately. The Reserve Bank should be ashamed to have someone like this on their board of directors and now that he has been exposed, they should act immediately,” he said. Hersch emphasized that the bank’s reaction to the issue, stating that Goodson’s mandate would end this July, “is not good enough.”

Hersch also called upon the South African government to issue a clear statement “condemning Goodson and distancing them from him and his statements, opinions, his denial of the Holocaust and adherence to anti-Semitic hate speech and complete falsehood.”

The South African Mail and Guardian revealed last week that Goodson has written articles depicting an “historical analysis of banking history,” according to which Jewish bankers invented the Holocaust just to extract money from Germany. In an interview with an extreme-right American radio station two years ago, Goodson refers also to “ritual murder” executed, so he claimed, by Jews in the early centuries.

The South Africa Jewish Board of Deputies assured the Jewish community on Monday that they are following up very closely on the issue, as they systematically do on all anti-Semitic incidents.

David Jacobson, executive-director of the board in Cape Town, stated that the community was “shocked” over the “grossly anti-Semitic and racially inflammatory views” propagated by Goodson, and that the community welcomed the fact that the Reserve Bank has distanced itself from the opinions expressed by him. This adds to the statement made by the Board’s chairman, Mary Kluk, last week, condemning Goodson’s “hurtful and offensive” views.

Members of the Jewish community emphasized that although they identify with the call to fire Goodson, they understand that legally the Reserve Bank cannot do so, as he is serving as a non-executive director, representing the Reserve Bank’s shareholders, and is not employed by the bank.

Jews in Top Positions in Lenin’s Government

Tuesday, April 24th, 2012

Four Marxist revolutionary parties banned together to overthrow the Czar in the October Revolution of 1917. Today we know that all four were headed by Jews and two were 100% Jewish. They were the Jewish Bund headed by Abramovitch and Lieber, The Mensheviks headed by Martov and Dan, The Social Democrats headed by Danishevsky and the Bolsheviks by Lenin and Trotsky. (The last two had Gentile members).

Immediately after the overthrow of the Czar, Lenin placed Jews in every position of power over this Christian nation. He immediately went to work to destroy the farmer/landowners and the religion of Christianity.

Communists in the Democratic Party

Tuesday, April 24th, 2012

Sen. Howard Metzenbaum (D-Ohio) served as the Secretary of the National Lawyers Guild (NLG) in 1936. It was named by the House Committee on Un-American Activities as a Communist Front. The NLG was started in 1925 as a branch of International Red Aid.

They provided free lawyers to members of the U.S. Communist Party and such notorious Jew spies as Martin Sobell and Judith Coplon.

In 1944, the Jew Metzenbaum was one of three men who incorporated the Ohio School of Social Sciences, later revealed to be another Communist Front.

Metzenbaum promoted the Communist Party’s goals as a member of both the Intelligence and Judiciary Committees of the US Senate. Most of the anti-gun agitation there has been his handiwork and Ohio voters should make sure that his son-in-law Joel Hyatt does not carry on his sinister mission upon his retirement this year.

Former Rep. Bella Abzug, a Jewess from Brooklyn, was a feminist leader in the Democratic Party. She was a member of the board of directors of the NLG and was a leader of the Communist front. Women’s Strike for Peace, during the Vietnam War.

Anne Braden, of Louisville, KY is a life long member of the Communist Party and one of their most important organizers for Southern States. In November, 1988 she was an elector in Kentucky for Gus Hall for President.

Braden worked in the South as an aide to Martin Luther King. At one time she bought a home in a Louisville neighborhood. The home was then bombed and Anne Braden and her husband Carl were charged in the incident. The motive given by the District Attorney was that she was attempting to recruit Blacks into the Communist Party by blaming Whites for the bombing. In 1980 and 1984 Braden was a delegate to the Democratic Party national conventions.

The Soviet formed “World Peace Council” had as its President, Romesch Chandra, head of the Communist Party of India. He visited the U.S. in 1978. A committee of Congressmen was organized to host the event. They included John Burton (CA), Don Edwards (CA), Charles Rangel (NY), Ted Weiss (NY), John Conyers (D-MI), Mervyn Dymally (D-CA), George Crockett (D-MI), and Mickey Leland (D-TX).

What all this means is that the Democratic Party has become the new Communist Party!Original Founders of Communism Were All Jews

“The Jews in Russia, in their total mass, were responsible for the Revolution.” -Angelo S. Rappaport, ‘The Pioneers of the Russian Revolution’, P. 250, Stanely, Paul and Co., London 1918″There is much in the fact of Bolshevism itself, in the fact that so many Jews are Bolshevists. The ideals of Bolshevism are consonant with many of the highest ideals of Judaism.” -‘Jewish Chronicle’, London, April 4, 1919

The Bolshevist revolution in Russian was the work of Jewish brains, of Jewish dissatisfaction, of Jewish

planning, whose goal is to create a new order in the world. What was performed in so excellent a way in

Russia, thanks to Jewish brains, and because of Jewish dissatisfaction and by Jewish planning, shall also,

through the same Jewish mental and physical forces, become a reality all over the world.” -‘The American

Hebrew’, Sept 10, 1920

“Bolshevism is a religion and a faith. How could those half- converted believers dream to vanquish the ‘Truthful’ and the ‘Faithful’ of their own creed, those holy crusaders, who had gathered around the Red standard of the prophet Karl Marx, and who fought under the daring guidance of those experienced officers of all later-day revolutions – the Jews?” -Dr. Oscar Levy, Preface ‘The World Significance of the Russian Revolution’ by George Pitt-Rivers 1920″It is often said that Judaism is the driving force of communism; but this does not prove anything beyond that which is expected and only natural… It is surprising that Judaism should become the fermenting and destructive element in countries which have always despised and persecuted it? That peculiar faculty for intrigue, stratagem, conspiracies, and that patient, almost uncanny waiting for the hour of never-failing revenge, are all characteristics of the chosen people.” -Prof. F.A. Ossendowski, ‘The Nineteenth Century and After’, (London), p. 29, Jan 1926

Historians have long held that while a majority of the founders of the Communist movement in Russia were Jews its head was the Gentile, Vladimir Lenin. Today it has been revealed that Lenin was a secret Jew. He spoke fluent Yiddish, was adopted by a Jewish family and his wife was a Jewess.

The Broward Jewish Journal of 2/25/92 revealed that the story of Lenin’s heritage was discovered in the secret files of the Communist Party in Moscow. Linin’s grandfather, Alexander Blank, had been born to Jewish parents. When the parents died, Lenin and his brother were adopted by a Jewish family.

Students say presentation on Holocaust changes attitudes

Thursday, March 8th, 2012


Like narrating a movie, Scott walked students through a scene in which a victim of the Holocaust, facing death in a gas chamber at the hands of Nazi German soldiers, pried himself from the clutch of his terrified younger brother to climb a pile of dead bodies in a failed attempt to save himself from the poisoned air that was rising from the floor.

It was “your” brother who had already died in the corner as you struggled to stay alive for a few seconds more, Scott said, in attempts to make the history more personal to the students.

“The challenge of Holocaust education is to make those numbers meaningful,” Scott said in an interview after the presentation when he explained his word choice.

At the introduction, Scott said the Holocaust occurred from 1933 to 1945, during which an estimated 7 to 10 million people died. And it wasn’t only Jews who died, but gypsies, homosexuals, clergy of other faiths, communists, socialists, trade union people, the disabled and people who hid Jews or tried to rescue them from the Nazis.

During the second part of the presentation, Scott gave examples of how hatred, racism and prejudice still permeates society in the United States. He called that hatred signs that the Holocaust is “alive and well” today.

He showed video clips of the Ku Klux Klan, National Socialist White Workers Party and skinheads. He spoke of the victims of hate, James Byrd, Jr. in Japser, Texas in 1998 and Matthew Shepard in Laramie, Wyo. in 1998 and students at the tragic shootings at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colo in 1999.

He also shared examples of essays he’d received from students who had listened to his previous presentations, and some students’ essays included derogatory remarks towards people who were of a particular race. Scott shared those remarks without censoring them.

Scott said examples of how the Holocaust is present today is even visible in the way popular and so-called unpopular students don’t get along.

Some of the students who saw the presentation shared their reactions.

Student Michael Maniak said he remembered the bad words shared during the presentation.

Student Katie Pulver said the program was full of impact, especially hearing how some people vandalized a synagogue by writing “Die Jew,” on it in Madison.

She said she believed the presentation will help the school.

Student Sierra Crowe said, “It was just really unbelievable.” She said she never thought examples of recent racism could happen in the Dells or in rural communities. She said she is a changed person in how she’ll interact with people.

“I think I’ll get to know them a lot better before I judge them,” she said.

Student Taylor Jarzynski said Scott explained the Holocaust to show the students what it would have been like to be there.

“I thought it was really good how he described it,” he said.

He said he’d been changed by the presentation of the Holocaust.

“I didn’t know how serious it was,” he said.

Part of Scott’s presentation addressed why it is important to study the Holocaust. With examples such as the ones he gave of present day hate crimes, he said, “It’s not lame history anymore.”

He quoted George Santayana who said if people don’t study history they will repeat it.

In the interview, Scott said he didn’t want to oversimplify the cause of the Holocaust. He said factors contributed to it, such as German leader Adolf Hitler’s background growing up in an anti-Semitic environment, an economic depression, wounded pride after World War I, impossible sanctions in the Treaty of Versailles after World War I that left Germany with debt, Social Democrats wanting freedom and the rise of communists.

Scott’s website is www.putouttheflame.com. He strives to “put out the flame” of racism, prejudice and hatred today that were encouraged during the Holocaust.

French politician says he was verbally assaulted by group

Friday, March 2nd, 2012

A Socialist politician in France and his partner said they were verbally assaulted by a group who shouted an anti-Semitic slur as well as support for the far-right National Front Party.

Arnaud Montebourg, a leading Socialist politician, and his partner, television broadcaster Audrey Pulvar, said Wednesday that a group of approximately 15 people called them “Juden” the previous day as they were leaving a restaurant in a high-end western Parisian neighborhood. Neither are Jewish. They said the group also shouted “Le Pen for president,” referring to Marine LePen, leader of the far-right National Front Party, and “France for the French.”

Police are investigating the incident, Reuters reported.

LePen condemned the incident, but said police would have to investigate whether members of the group were truly attached to her party.

Montebourg has been a sharp critic of what he describes as Le Pen’s ties to neo-Nazi groups in Europe.

Nazi Ideology

Sunday, February 12th, 2012

Nazi ideology drew on the racist doctrines of the comte de Gobineau and Houston Stewart Chamberlain, on the nationalism of Heinrich von Treitschke, and on the hero-cult of Friedrich Nietzsche, often transforming the ideas of these thinkers. Nazi dogma, partly articulated by Hitler in Mein Kampf, was elaborated by the fanatical Alfred Rosenberg. Vague and mystical, it was not a system of well-defined principles but rather a glorification of prejudice and myth with elements of nihilism. Its mainstays were the doctrines of racial inequality and of adherence to the leader, or Führer; its constant theme was nationalist expansion.

According to Nazi dogma, races could be scientifically classified as superior and inferior. The highest racial type was the Nordic, or Germanic, type of the “Aryan” race, while blacks and Jews were at the bottom of the racial ladder. Intermarriage contributed to the deterioration of the superior race, and the Jews, knowing this, had furthered prostitution and seduction to defile the Germans. Consequently only small islands of the pure remained, but it was their destiny to govern their inferiors and, through scientific breeding, to extend the “master race” and limit inferior races.

The Nazis accused Jews of obstructing the conquering path of the “master race.” Marxism, international finance, and Freemasonry were all said to be Jewish devices created to dominate the world. Even Christianity was denounced by Rosenberg as a Jewish creation, but Hitler hedged on this point. International Jewry was blamed for the humiliation of Germany in the Treaty of Versailles (1919), and German Jewry was accused of betraying Germany in World War I.

Nazi expansionism was linked to race in the geopolitical theories of Karl Haushofer; from the degenerate Slavs in particular the Germans would wrest Lebensraum [living space]. The ruling “master race” itself was to be organized into an authoritarian pyramid, at the apex of which stood the infallible Führer. Strength and discipline were deified by the Nazis, and democracy was spurned as a depraved form of government that protected the weak and mediocre.

Both sides in civil rights battle said the other aided Communism

Monday, February 6th, 2012

If the name Walter White means anything to people these days, it’s connected with the lead character in the cable television show “Breaking Bad.”

But when then-NAACP Executive Director Walter White came to Springfield in January 1949, he argued that the U.S. was giving Communist Soviet Union a huge propaganda break every time Americans failed to stand up to racial discrimination.

A program from Walter White’s Springfield appearance is part of the Black History Month exhibit that opens Wednesday at the Heritage Center of Clark County. Admission is free.

White’s visit was hosted by the Wesleyan Union at a meeting led by the Rev. W.P. Kellogg of Wiley Methodist Church.

In a nod to an earlier form of what’s now called multiculturalism, the invocation was given by Rabbi Sidney Brooks. A reception followed in the North Street AME Church.

“Last night at Athens, Ohio, the Ku Klux Klan burned a fiery cross in front of the home of a nearby Negro family,” White told a large crowd in Springfield’s Memorial Hall.

“As we sit here tonight, news of this is being sent over the world, destroying our democratic reputation,” he said.

“Imagine the field day Moscow radio will have if the 17 Southern senators carry out their threat to filibuster against civil rights legislation,” he added.

White also invoked the specter of Hitler.

Saying that while in Germany he had asked how people could have fallen for Hitler’s theories of racial superiority, White said he heard the response: “How can you ask us that, when you have a segregated Army with whites and Negroes openly antagonistic to each other?”

“Your soldiers and officers tell us privately that they believe Hitler was right in attempting to wipe the Jews from the face of the Earth,” White said he was told.

“And, at the same time,” he said, “we presume to tell the rest of the world how it should conduct its affairs.”

White called blacks burned out of their homes by the Klan “displaced persons, just as the Jews who were driven from their homes in Nazi Germany,” and complained that Americans had displaced their own values in putting off the struggle for civil rights.

“All presidents, including the great (Franklin) Roosevelt, had always told us that the time wasn’t right — that it would have to be a slow process — and that they couldn’t afford to antagonize the South,” he said.

He praised Harry Truman, who would be inaugurated days later, for being the exception, then claimed that the support of blacks was critical in his election.

Arguing “it is well within the range of possibility that by 1952 … there will be more than 2 million Negro voters in the South,” White declared that “now is the time in human history that democracy can prove its belief in freedom.”

That, of course, did not happen.

Nor was White’s side of the civil rights battle the only to say the other side was furthering the cause of Communism.

Three months to the day after reporting White’s speech, the front page of Springfield’s morning newspaper, The Sun, reported the testimony of a black man who said he’d been trained in the Soviet Union to help organize blacks in the South to rise up in revolution and establish a black nation across the old Confederacy.

Parroting a pattern in the Gettysburg Address, the story added: “Out of this blood bath was to come a new Negro nation, conceived in violence and dedicated to extending the Communist revolution throughout the United States.”

Opponents of civil rights sought to pair fear of greater freedom for blacks with fear of the Soviet Union, trying to show both as part of a new world order they didn’t want to live in.

In the midst of the Cold War, the two sides of the civil rights struggle may have agreed on just one thing: To use the hammer and sickle from the Soviet flag to attack one another’s positions as being an enemy to American freedom

‘Israel jails worse than Nazi camps’

Sunday, January 15th, 2012

A Palestinian official says Palestinian prisoners are subjected to the most inhumane treatment and are tortured in Israeli prisons, which are even more gruesome than Nazi concentration camps.

In an interview with Iran’s Fars News Agency on Sunday, Palestinian Minister for Captives Affairs Ataollah Abu Sabah said of the 44,000 Palestinian inmates currently languishing in Israeli prisons, seven are women and 23 are members of the Palestinian Legislative Council.

Abu Sabah described the desert prison of Naqab (Negev), where the detainees are kept in tents, as the Israeli regime’s worst prison.

Last year, an Israeli TV station released video footage of Palestinian detainees being tortured by Israeli troops in the notorious Naqab prison in 2008, as a result of which one Palestinian died and several others sustained injuries.

The Palestinian official further confirmed reports that the relatives of the inmates and sometimes even their lawyers are forced to strip and are interrogated.

In late December 2010, a human rights group called Public Committee against Torture in Israel revealed that Palestinian detainees are systematically denied the right to meet a lawyer during interrogations.

Being shackled to chairs for long periods, sleep deprivation, intimidation, torture and excruciating detention conditions are some of the instances documented by the rights group in its report.

Abu Sabah went on to add that stripping captives in the subzero cold in the winter is one of the most common torture methods of the Israeli regime.

The ill captives, he said, are deprived of even the most basic medical treatment, adding that the inmates suffering from medical conditions are not few in number and face gradual death in the regime’s prison

Israel has some secret prisons where it keeps some of the first captives of the Resistance Movement, Abu Sabah said, adding that the regime has even abducted activists from other Arab countries, whose fate is unknown.

Israel Prison Service (IPS) Director Aharon Franco announced in October that there are several prisons in Israel, including Damon prison, Ramle’s Neve Tirza prison, and the Ma’asiyahu prison, that are no longer fit for inmates.

Franco also said the standard in the US is to allocate eight meters of space for each inmate and the standard is six meters in Europe. In Israel, however, just four meters are allocated for each inmate.

LA judge, who ruled against Holocaust-deniers, dies

Sunday, January 1st, 2012

The Los Angeles judge who imposed a major setback on Shoah-deniers by ruling that the Holocaust was “a fact and not reasonably subject to dispute,” died Dec. 28 at 88 at his Pacific Palisades home.
As a Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge, Thomas T. Johnson made history in 1981 by his ruling in a case pitting Mel Mermelstein, a survivor of Auschwitz and Buchenwald, against the Institute of Historical Research in Torrance.
In 1980, the institute, which labels the Holocaust as a myth, had offered a $50,000 reward to anyone who could prove that Jews had been gassed at Auschwitz-Birkenau.
In turn, Mermelstein submitted a notarized account describing how he saw Nazi guards take his mother and two sisters to what he later learned was the Birkenau gas chamber. When the institute reneged on the payment, Mermelstein sued for $17 million.
During the trial, Johnson resolved the most controversial aspect of the case by applying the doctrine of judicial notice, which allows courts to recognize as fact information that is common knowledge.
“The court does take judicial notice that Jews were gassed to death in Poland at Auschwitz in the summer of 1944,” when Mermelstein and his family were there, Johnson ruled.
William John Cox, Mermelstein’s attorney, described the judge’s “courageous decision” as “the greatest ruling I could have hoped for.”
Johnson, a native of Kentucky and World War II veteran, presided over a number of headline-grabbing cases, involving such names as entertainer Rudy Vallee, tennis star Billie Jean King, and philanthropist Norton Simon.
However, none of these cases, the Los Angeles Times commented, “matched the historical significance of the lawsuit that asked him to decide whether the Holocaust actually took place.”
Mermelstein ultimately won a $90,00 settlement and a formal apology from the institute. The trial was dramatized in 1991 in the television movie “Never Forget,” with actor Leonard Nimoy in the role of Mermelstein, and described in detail by Mermelstein in his autobiography “By Bread Alone.”
Now an 85-year old Long Beach resident, Mermelstein could not be reached for comment. – By Tom Tugend, Contributing Editor

Neo-Nazi Monopoly: Pass the swastika, collect £200

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011


Pogromly is designed in the same way as a traditional Monopoly board, but instead of players racing around to purchase properties, it features pictures of Hitler, caricatures of Jews and concentration camps in the spots usually reserved for stations or “chance” cards. Instead of Water Works and the Electric Company there is a “gasworks” property and instead of Go, players start on a swastika symbol.

The “game” is understood to have been around for 13 years and to have been developed by members of the National Socialist Underground, a terrorist group allegedly behind the murders of at least ten people since 2000.

According to Germany‘s FAZ newspaper, Pogromly has been sold to neo-Nazi activists to fund their activities over the years. One member of the cell wanted for murder surrendered to the German police last month, enabling the game to come to light.

Elan Steinberg, the vice-president of the American Gathering of Holocaust Survivors and their Descendants, said that the game itself was “merely a trivial footnote to the monstrous crimes these individuals are charged with”.

Holocaust survivors in Israel send their books back to Germany

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011

When Jewish refugees left Nazi Germany for Israel in the 1930s and 40s, many packed the very books the Nazis were burning. Now, the Holocaust survivors are sharing their libraries with German students.


The pupils in class 9S at the Grabbe Gymnasium in Detmold have a particular reputation for boisterousness. But on the day that the package from Jerusalem arrived, you could have heard a pin drop, said 15-year-old Charlotte Schimanovsky.


“Our teacher came late to history class,” Charlotte remembered. “We were all wondering what was going on. Then he arrived with this package, and we opened it and out came these beautiful books.”


Bildunterschrift: Großansicht des Bildes mit der Bildunterschrift:  The students sent a package of their own back to Israel

The six yellowing books were once the proud possessions of a Jewish girl named Ada Brodsky. Born in Frankfurt an der Oder in 1924, Ada was barely 15 when she was forced to flea Nazi Germany – almost exactly the same age as Charlotte and her classmates.


“She was an amazing woman,” said Charlotte, who studied the little biographical pamphlet included in the package with growing admiration. “I’m so impressed by everything that she achieved.”


Bridging the culture divide


Despite the horrors of the Holocaust, Ada Brodsky remained determined to celebrate the good things about the culture she had grown up in. She lovingly preserved the German books which had escaped with her, and even built a successful literary career on introducing German classics to a Hebrew-speaking audience.


Now, after over half a century, her books have arrived back in Germany as part of a project called No Lightweight Packages. It’s the brainchild of Simone Lenz, director of the Goethe-Institut in Jerusalem.


When Lenz arrived in Jerusalem six years ago, she found herself inundated by requests from the families descended from German Holocaust refugees hoping to find a home for the books they had brought with them from Germany.


Bildunterschrift: Großansicht des Bildes mit der Bildunterschrift:  Charlotte could identify with Ada Brodsky

Most second and third-generation Israelis have long since lost contact with the German language of their grandparents, so the volumes were simply gathering dust. Something about the books, however, caught Lenz’s eye.


“I was moved that they brought us these books of the very authors who were burned in Germany in the 30s,” recalled Lenz, who immediately set about hatching a plan to return the books to their country of origin.


A literary homecoming


Together with the young scholar Caroline Jessen, Lenz worked on compiling biographical information about the books’ donors. Then she contacted various German schools, offering teachers the chance to receive a parcel of books intimately linked to the biographies of individual Holocaust survivors living in Israel.


Steven Förster, a 31-year-old teacher at the Grabbe Gymnasium in Detmold, jumped at the chance to get involved in the project.


“The problem is that if you don’t have a personal story which the pupils can relate to, then it’s just an ordinary lesson,” Förster explained. “But if you can get them to emotionally connect to the life of Ada Brodsky, then it goes much deeper and lasts a lot longer. That’s what history lessons should be about.”


Bildunterschrift: Großansicht des Bildes mit der Bildunterschrift:  Förster says it’s crucial to connect students to personal storiesAccording to Förster, the benefits of developing a personal connection to historical events are social, as well as educational. “If a pupil really reflects on something, then he or she can reach the right conclusions,” said Förster. “That doesn’t just help the pupil, it helps society as well.”


Sadly, Ada Brodsky died before her parcel of books reached Germany. Nevertheless, Förster’s pupils have sent a package of their own to Israel, full of letters expressing their thanks for the gift of her books. They are hoping that her family will read the letters, and that this will be the beginning of a lasting connection.


In the meantime, their teacher has been so inspired by the project that he is keen to try out a similar scheme with people who lived through the communist dictatorship in East Germany.

Boycotts are a great Jewish tradition

Friday, July 15th, 2011

The anti-boycott law is a deviation from the ancient Jewish tradition; only an ignoramus when it comes to Torah could be caught in such an heretical act.


And more about the Boycott Law, which was passed this week by irresponsible people, while the frightened captain hid in the belly of the ship. The 18th Knesset will become infamous as for being light-headed but causing heavy damage, which is probably irreparable.

It seems everything possible has already been said about this law: That it’s anti-democratic and anti-constitutional, and exposes Israel to public disgrace. But nobody has said that it’s a deviation from the ancient Jewish tradition, from a rich national culture. Only someone lacking in Jewish awareness, an ignoramus when it comes to Torah, could be caught in such an heretical act.

What is the value of purification and cleansing on Yom Kippur eve, in the Kol Nidrei prayer, without the boycotts of the preceding year and those to be decreed in the coming year? And how can we be released after the fact from all the vows, obligations, oaths or anathemas, if we didn’t impose them in the first place? The new law obviates the purpose of the prayer.

After all, it’s well known that every good Jew needs at least two synagogues, one to pray in and one to boycott: He will not set foot in it under threat of death, nor cross its threshold. A congregation that does not have a few ostracized people or institutions cannot be considered a holy and mentally sound congregation; and a boycott on Shabbat is a pleasure.

It’s not clear that boycotting and ostracism are a Jewish invention, but there’s no question that Jews are among its outstanding developers. Some kind of demon suddenly entered this coalition, which is inciting it to deeds that are not part of Jewish nature – for that alone they deserve to be boycotted.

I would expect the minister of education – another deserter from the Knesset plenum – who nurtures heritage and Israeli culture studies, to enlighten his culturally disadvantaged colleagues: What do you have to do with this legislation – as though you were “post-Jews” – that ignores the boycott that was imposed on Akavia Ben Mahalel; that rejects Shimon Ben Shetach, who wanted to boycott Honi the Circle-Maker; that hardens itself against Rabbi Gershom – the “Light of the Diaspora” – whom we would probably not remember were it not for his boycott.

And where are those guys Baruch Spinoza and Uriel D’Acosta, whose names are familiar to the initiators of the law only due to the boycott imposed on them by the rabbis of Holland, and not necessarily due to their philosophical teachings?

And how will we learn and be taught about historical boycotts of Hasidim against Mitnagdim, and mainly Mitnagdim against Hasidim? And about the Orthodox world that observes negiah (prohibition against physical contact between unmarried men and women ), and has been excommunicating the Reform movement for over 200 years.

How goodly are your boycotts, O Jacob, your ostracized ones, O Israel, only some of which we have enumerated, and why interrupt a magnificent historical chain? But the minister of education is silent, finding refuge in the den of the patriarchs.

The law is not only anti-Jewish, it is anti-Zionist. The path of the nascent state was paved with boycotts: Boazim (Jewish farmers ) boycotting halutzim (pioneers ) and vice versa; protectors of Israeli produce boycotting Arab labor; Ze’ev Jabotinsky boycotting the Zionist Histadrut labor federation, and David Ben-Gurion paying him back.

If only the disciples of Jabotinsky had learned how to break – yes, to break – and not only how to boycott. But as post-Zionists, they knew only how to climb the iron wall.

And eventually, after independence, Ben-Gurion removed Herut (the forerunner of Likud ) and Maki (the Israel Communist Party ) from the Israeli community and buried them outside the fence. They were great men, the founding fathers, with great boycotts and great dreams; their successors are grasshoppers, for whom even a small boycott is too big.

Faithful to tradition, let us boycott settlements and their products, and even call on others to follow in our footsteps. And we won’t be counted among post-Jews and Zionists, the new Hellenists, Zeev Elkin and his partners. And the more they legislate for us, the more we will violate unacceptable laws. Because there is no longer a choice: If we don’t want to swallow them, then we can only vomit them out.

Parliament urges Germany to hike Nazi victims’ pensions

Wednesday, April 27th, 2011
BERLIN - JANUARY 26:  German President Horst K...

Image by Getty Images via @daylife

BERLIN (AFP)—The German parliament has urged the government to raise the pensions paid out to Holocaust survivors from the former Soviet Union living in Germany to redress what it called an enduring injustice.

“The Bundesrat (upper house) calls on the federal government to recognize Jewish Holocaust victims from the former Soviet Union as ‘persons persecuted by the Nazi regime’ and to create the legal basis for independent pension claims for these people,” it said in a resolution.

“Due to the age of the Holocaust survivors, we call on the federal government to table a draft law without delay.”

The Bundesrat, which represents Germany’s 16 states, said that the Jewish former prisoners of concentrations and ghettos had fallen victim to a legal loophole that exempted them from the list of recognied victims of the Nazis.

As such, they were not entitled to state pensions accorded to people persecuted under the Third Reich and were thus dependent on much smaller monthly subsistence payments

A policy approved in January 1991 allowed Jewish Holocaust survivors from
the former Soviet Union to emigrate to Germany as refugees.

That status, however, has meant they had no right to state pensions for
Nazi victims and must even report any savings they had accumulated, for
example from support payments from the Jewish Claims Conference.

Those funds are then counted against them when calculating their welfare
payments in Germany.

The Bundesrat could not immediately provide an estimate of how many people would be affected by a change in policy.

Germany has paid out the equivalent of more than 67 billion euros ($97
billion) to victims of the Nazis including survivors of concentration camps,
ghettos or forced work camps.

During the Cold War, West Germany only offered restitution to people living
in the West and referred those living in the Eastern bloc to the government of
communist East Germany, which refused to assume any responsibility for Hitler’s crimes.

After German unification in 1990 and following negotiations with the Jewish
Claims Conference, the country agreed to establish a new fund for Holocaust
survivors from eastern Europe.
