So hard to watch... So necessary to watch!

This is such a hard video to watch... and yet so necessary. The world today is so ignorant of what happened... and thus... sliding right back into it again.

Where can I find the complete series of "Miracle of Israel". I would like to educate my friends by posting one episode a week on my facebook page. Thank you.

Visit a survivor

My children have met Mr. Ross our neighbour and survivor of Aushwitz. I told them and my friends and collegues, their grandchildren will tell their grandchildren (circa year 2200 BEZRAT"H) that their grandmother's grandmother met a survivor - that will be the unbroken chain of transmission.

Never again

Only G-D knows why there are still deniers. Maybe so we can keep on saying: Never again! I have 6 million reasons so tell the world what happened.

God only knows, if anyone is entitled express paranoid opinions, it is the Jewish People. The danger is that this can alienate friends, the real friends of the Israel State. On one of my trip to Israel a very smart fellow suddenly said at the dinner table, "Israel has no friends. I don't care about anybody but us." I told him and everyone else that this is not true. The American people are Israel's friends and a very large percentage of Western Europe is too. I even know Arabs who confess a preference for Israel ove the Palestinians. I think even as you look back in history you see a definite a definite bias in favor of Jews, side by side with the anti-semitic diatribes. It is to be noted that AFTER the Kristalnacht, attitudes hardened in the US and Britain towards Hitler (whereas at the time of Munich, even Roosevelt congratulated Chamberlain). Hitler's persecution of the Jews was a nail in his coffin. Israeli's know their security needs and we support you in meeting those needs. However, non-Israelis, Jewish and non-Jewish, are looking ahead to a solution to all these problems. It is clear to everyone whose sight is not fogged up with anger and frustration, that the Palestinians will be infinitely better off at peace with Israel and that Israel can live with a friendly and cooperative Palestininan neighbour. That is the direction in which to go even when the Palestinians are staying stubborn and foolish. The point for Israel and for Jews is that you have friends. I suppose we look slow and simple minded sometimes, but we are there for you. I have no doubt that if Israel were ever subject to an attack she could not handle, our airforce and our soldiers would be rushed to bolster Israel's resistance. I myself would certainly go--just give me a

Neo-nazism to be watched carefully as it shows the DNA lineage

What worries me most is how a fascist regime & its people & instritutions like churches, social groups, intellectuals sided to such a holocaust. How SS group(more cruel than Hitler)- group of many hitlers - not a single sided with the victims - Ho, can''t think of it

The Filmreels should be played on public marquees all over Europe and Britain NOW

Europe and Britian have become IslamoNazi havens and the ordinary citizens by the millions need to see these filmreels again. They need to remember what the Nazis did, and they need to understand that the Islamist Facists they have allowed to immigrate by the millions into their countries will do the SAME THING and that indeed these facists were in league WITH the Nazis back then - and that in fact their goals have never changed. To rule the entire world and to exterminate every Jew alive. These filmreels should be shown together side by side with films showing modern day IslamoNazi Imams and Clerics preaching to millions of Arabs both in mosques and on the internet, directing them to murder Jews and drink their blood, along with the rest of their rhetoric. And it needs to be made VERY CLEAR that these are no longer "fringe" Muslims, but mainstream and that they are in EVERYONE'S backyards all over Europe. As well, it is happening here in the USA in mosques all over the country, however the general public is not aware of it. The citizens of the USA are asleep. We would do well to take a lesson from Turkey, which had known listening devices in every Mosque in Turkey for many years precisely to keep the IslamoNazis from being able to preach their Facism there, to keep them from infiltrating and stealth Jihading. And it worked well for decades. Jihad by Stealth (an excellent book, by the way everyone should read it) is happening here just as it has happened in Europe, and the sooner the public is made aware of it the better. These filmreels should be shown side by side with the recent films of the IslamoNazi Facist Imams and Clerics. In every school, including Universities. ASAP. The public needs to wake up and see what is going on.

Never Forget....

I was born in 1942 and I remember a book my mother had when I was a young child. It had pictures of the Holocaust. It left a lasting impression on me and I never forgot. A well kept secret is that the Arabs were instrumental in aiding Hitler. Perhaps that's why they try to deny it ever happened. May G-d bless Israel and always pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
