***WARNING! DISTRESSING IMAGES***
I have been upset to discover that the old chestnut of ‘Holocaust Denial’, is going the rounds again. Far right propagandists in Britain, some other European countries, and even parts of America are going on record as claiming that the murders in the concentration camps of Nazi Germany never happened. They claim that they were ‘staged’ later, by the Allies, hoping to blacken the name of Germany throughout history.
This poor young woman was about to be subjected to obscene medical experiments.
There have been millions of pages of documented evidence of this staggering atrocity. Not least the careful records kept by the Nazis themselves, as well as the film records they were happy to shoot at the time. Then there is the heartbreaking testimony of the all-too-few survivors, the books written, and the tragic personal stories. In addition, we have the film records of those who liberated the camps; soldiers from Britain, Russia, and The United States.
I have found these photos online, for the benefit of those of you who might be too young to have seen such images, or perhaps chose not to look at them.
Please look at them now. Never forget what happened, and how it could so easily happen again.
I have decided not to caption any of the photos. They speak for themselves.
These are people, not objects. Not ‘things’. People, like you and me.
They had hopes and expectations, ambitions and aspirations. Families.
Try to imagine this happening to your family. I doubt you can
Neither can I.
