About Holocaust jokes....

Postby StuDewan » 5 days 15 hours ago (Wed Jul 21, 2021 8:38 pm)

A few weeks ago someone posted a joke related to the Holocaust and was, of course, attacked.

He posted that he was "as surprised as a jew seeing water come out of the shower". Funny or not, it's a remark that supports the Holocaust narrative that jews were gassed thru showers.

Other jokes do the same.

"What is the difference between a jew and a pizza? The pizza doesn't cry on the way to the oven."

Again, it supports the (wrong) idea that jews were sent alive to cremation.

"How many jews can you put inside a VW Beetle? A hundred, one driving, 99 on the ashtray."

Supports the narrative that cremation leaves just a tiny amount of ashes and that's why such ashes were never found.

Even the omnipresent doctor stars some jokes.

"Dr.Mengele was addressing the inmates during the morning call and says 'Next week half of you will be sent to Switzerland'.
As the inmates rejoice he says 'The bottom half.'"

So the questions is: Are there jokes that support the revisionist (or true...) view of the Holocaust?

A funny little web site with a few holocaust jokes, some are even funny!

I think my favourite is this one...
One day during the war, Hitler gathered his top advisers to hold a top secret meeting. He said "Ok, tomorrow ve vill kill 1,000 Jews and three hamsters". His advisors looked at one another, and one said, "But Hitler, vhy ze three hamsters". Hitler smiled at his advisers and replied, "You see, no one cares about ze jews!"


Probably not what you're looking for but I thought I'd lighten the load.

Indeed those jokes were always part of the framing. This is probably also why some rather ridiculous stories were told right from the beginning . Soap from human fat, lamp-shades from human skin, etc. That stuff is preposterous on its face, but is guaranteed to keep people talking about it. Dry mass execution stories don't have the marketing value, that kind of macabre tell-tales do have.

These sorts of jokes are just meant to be distasteful. They aren't intended to undermine the Holocaust or offer any deeper commentary. They take something that is normally treated reverentially and instead treat it in a flippant way. Shock value. If you're looking for a more revisionist style joke you'd want it to have more of a satirical edge to it.
