News and Views on the 70th Anniversary Commemoration

Postby k0nsl » 4 years 7 months ago (Sun Jan 18, 2015 3:41 pm)

I caught this via carolynyeager.net, an article titled « News and Views on the 70th Anniversary Commemoration » with the following subheading « A Brief History of how the Masters of Make-Believe made the world believe in Death Camps ».

Excerpt:

Auschwitz as we know it is a Hollywood Creation
by the jan27.org Committee

Today’s Hollywood Jews are the heirs of the original crop of wartime Hollywood producers and directors who were called into service by the U.S. Army to “document” the concentration camps. Although they were not allowed into Auschwitz-Birkenau or Majdanek which were under the tight control of the Soviet Union, they actually had better film-making opportunities at the camps located in Germany proper which had suffered from intense American bombardment. With supply lines and infrastructure smashed to pieces, horrific scenes in these camps caused by hunger, poor hygiene and disease were not hard to find in 1945.

Commemoration: The Museum has launched a special website

70.auschwitz.org

This will be a Unique Anniversary

Interview with Dr. Piotr M.A. Cywiński, the director of the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum

"The future of our civilisation is in our own hands and we must take responsibility for the shape of that future. And a wise vision of future must be rooted in memory."

Map of World Remembrance

The main commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz will be held in front of the Death Gate of KL Auschwitz II–Birkenau. On this day – which, for ten years now has been commemorated as International Holocaust Remembrance Day – various anniversary events will be held in many countries: conferences, exhibitions, ceremonies, meetings… It will show that the tragedy of Auschwitz and the memory of its victims lies deep in the hearts of people all over the world.

We would like to show here how enormous the Map of World Remembrance is.

Any thoughts on the Putin affaire? I’ve read conflicting stories, fact is he will not attend this charade. If he is for real, why not open the archives and put an end to these sham proceedings?

Putin still has a week to change his mind; that's what I'm waiting to see.

Yes, She really is a heroine in this Dark Age; I wish a lot of people would call Her and offer support.

One small typo in your comment, Wilf.....when we speak of Sylvia, the German Joan of Arc, it's not "her", it's "Her". :D

Auschwitz: Sooner or later, it's always about the money :mrgreen:

Auschwitz Foundation Nears $156M Anniversary Goal


Philanthropists Push Fund Up to $140M

January19, 2015

In advance of the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, the Auschwitz-Birkenau Foundation announced that it has raised $140 million of its approximately $156 million campaign goal.

The total includes $9 million in newly announced donations from six leading philanthropists.

The campaign was created in 2009 by the independent foundation to fund a perpetual endowment to continue to preserve the authentic remains, buildings, ruins, artifacts, documents and artworks at the Auschwitz Memorial, which includes the Auschwitz I and Auschwitz II-Birkenau Nazi camps.

“Auschwitz, the Nazi German concentration and extermination camp, is a symbol of the Holocaust,” said Jacek Kastelaniec, director general of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Foundation, in a statement. “It is also a one-of-a kind educational facility where young people may learn about the terrible outcomes of anti-Semitism, racism and hatred.

The Auschwitz-Birkenau Foundation’s sole purpose is to make sure that the authenticity of this unique memorial will survive so next generations will be able to understand what the words ‘never again’ mean.” More than 1.5 million people from around the world visited the memorial in 2014. The number of visitors has continued to rise over the last decade.

To date, thirty-four countries have donated $136 million, with the largest contribution from the Federal Republic of German, followed by the United States and the Republic of Poland.

The private donors include Melinda Goldrich and Andrea Goldrich Cayton and the Goldrich Family Foundation; Elly Kleinman; Frank Lowy, a Holocaust survivor; Lily Safra and the Edmond J. Safra Foundation; Steven Spielberg’s Righteous Persons Foundation; and Ronald S. Lauder, president of the World Jewish Congress, whose prior funding modernized the memorial’s conservation laboratories.

Several hundred survivors are expected to attend the 70th anniversary commemoration on Jan. 27, in addition to the donors, as well as many heads of state. This anniversary is considered significant by Auschwitz Memorial leaders because it is likely the last time that such a large number of survivors will be in attendance due to their advanced ages.

"The Anguish of Liberation as Reflected in Art, 1945-1947" displayed in the Yad Vashem Museum of Holocaust Art, will open on January 27, as part of a special evening marking International Holocaust Remembrance Day at Yad Vashem.


20 January 2015

JERUSALEM (EJP)---Chairman of Yad Vashem Avner Shalev will deliver the keynote address at a United Nations event marking International Holocaust Remembrance Day, on January 27,as well as the 70th Anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau.

The event at the UN General Assembly will take place with the participation of UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, Israel's President Reuven Rivlin, survivors and liberators.

Yad Vashem will also open two new exhibitions – one to be displayed at the United Nations Headquarters in New York and the other at the Yad Vashem Museum of Holocaust Art in Jerusalem.

The new traveling exhibition "Shoah: How Was It Humanly Possible?" will open on January 26, 2015, at the United Nations Visitors' Lobby in New York City. The exhibition, which uses texts, images, and video clips to recount a comprehensive history of the Holocaust from 1933-1945, will remain on display at the United Nations through February 2015.

"The Anguish of Liberation as Reflected in Art, 1945-1947" displayed in the Yad Vashem Museum of Holocaust Art, will open on January 27, as part of a special evening marking International Holocaust Remembrance Day at Yad Vashem.

The evening will be held in conjunction with UNESCO, in the presence ofdozens of diplomats and Thomas Geve, one of the survivor-artists.The exhibit, comprises works from the Yad Vashem Art Collection, features some 30 pieces produced at the time of liberation or in its immediate aftermath by 17artists: 15 survivors, one liberator and one witness.

These artworks depict the moment of liberation, as well as the devastation and loss the survivors found upon their return. Consequently, some works give voice to feelings of suffering and turmoil, while others relate to the artists’ newly found sense of freedom.

We must educate the new generations


What more?

The "holocaus"t is every day in the news!

Not a day without a story about the"nazis, "Auschwitz death camp", "holocaust survivors" ... and so on!


Artist depicts The Simpsons as emaciated Jews in concentration camp for Auschwitz anniversary


AN ITALIAN artist and activist has ‘Simpsonised’ the Holocaust in a series of unsettling cartoons.

aleXsandro Palombo redrew the beloved Simpson characters as Jews in Auschwitz to mark the 70th anniversary of the concentration camp’s liberation.

He said the project, called ‘Never Again’, is “an invitation to reflection, an artwork to raise awareness, an indictment against intolerance, a punch to inhumanity.”

One image shows Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie emaciated in a gas chamber, while another has the cartoon family looking dejected behind a barbed wire fence.

Image

Controversial ... Palombo depicted The Simpsons as Jews in Auschwitz to mark the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the concentration camp

Image

Troubling ... Palombo said his art is ‘an invitation to reflection, an artwork to raise awareness’.


We must educate the new generations and tell them what happened. We have to do it without filters, bluntly, over and over again, through the memory of facts and terrifying images that reflect the horror of the Holocaust and the extermination of millions of human beings,” the satirical artist explained

it becomes of the utmost importance that the lessons of this turning point in history are kept alive.


Turning point in history...

Like: "un point de détail" :wink:

I have said, and I repeat, at the risk of appearing sacrilegious, that the gas chambers are a detail of the history of the Second World War. … If you take a book of a thousand pages on the Second World War, in which 50 million people died, the concentration camps occupy two pages and the gas chambers ten or 15 lines, and that's what's called a detail.

Free online lessons launched to teach young about the Holocaust


Two free online courses about the Holocaust and its continued relevance today have been launched to coincide with Holocaust memorial day 2015.

Both these massive open online courses courses (MOOC) last three weeks and require attendants only to have access to the internet.

Through the courses, students will follow the history of the Holocaust from the emergence of Nazi ideology through to the Final Solution using diaries, official documents, news reports and films.

One of the topics discussed in these lessons will be the effect the day-to-day life of the concentration camp had on the human psyche.

These lessons were created by Tel Aviv University working with Yad Vashem’s International School for Holocaust Studies in Jerusalem and will be available through the FutureLearn website.

Mark Lester of FutureLearn said: ‘As the world reaches the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the concentration camps and the number of living survivors decreases, it becomes of the utmost importance that the lessons of this turning point in history are kept alive.

‘Massive open online courses have emerged as an important means of reaching thousands of learners around the world with the highest quality learning material on a range of topical issues.’

The first of these two courses begins on April 20.

Postby Hannover » 4 years 7 months ago (Tue Jan 27, 2015 6:27 am)

The laughable "holocaust' is now being marketed every hour, 24/7. This is simply because Revisionist research has demolished the impossible but very profitable lies. Desperation and panic has set in, the increasing indoctrination is proof. In the long this hyper-promotion raises eyebrows and drives more & more people to demand free speech on the matter. Free speech is the enemy of the absurd 'holocaust' storyline.

Their shrill demands are backfiring, Jewish supremacists "doth protest too much".

- Hannover

The 'holocaust' storyline is one of the most easily debunked narratives ever contrived. That is why those who question it are arrested and persecuted. That is why violent, racist, & privileged Jewish supremacists demand censorship. What sort of Truth is it that crushes the freedom to seek the truth? Truth needs no protection from scrutiny.
The Internet is demolishing the false narrative promoted by arrogant Jewish supremacists. From the slaughter of the Palestinians to the lies of Auschwitz the world is recognizing the dangers of Jewish supremacism.
The tide is turning.
If it can't happen as alleged, then it didn't.

Here are two newspaper stories doing their stuff today. They are interesting on some very obvious levels...

The Independent:

Auschwitz liberation 70th anniversary: Woman sent to three Nazi death camps describes surviving gas chamber


One need not read any further really. The headline says it all so why on earth do people buy in to these lies.
http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world ... 03895.html

The Daily Mail:

The high street haunted by mass murder: Chilling then and now pictures of the town next to Auschwitz where death will forever hang in the air


Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article ... z3Q1TvGd9N
Apart from an interesting view of then and now it doesn't really say too much, though of course it cannot resist the 'death was everywhere' routine. However further down the page we get an interview with a survivor, a Mr Mayer.

Mayer was finally freed from the Nazis by the Red Army in 1945 after surviving Auschwitz and eight other concentration camps. After the war, he settled in Manchester and worked as a tailor - devoting his life to raising awareness of Hitler's atrocities.


If this story alone doesn't disprove the 'final solution' then nothing can. This guy claims to have been through NINE camps and survived. But the jews were to be exterminated weren't they???
'Of the four million Jews under Nazi control in WW2, six million died and alas only five million survived.'

'We don't need evidence, we have survivors' - israeli politician
