This one seems to have slipped under the radar here over the past few days so I attempt to put it right and make a few comments on the ludicrous nature of this whole charade.
Notice how the number 6 appears which is laughable when one understands the whole story.
The story goes like this, my comments added for perspective;
Someone (strangely unknown or probably kept very quiet) apparently went to Auschwitz about 20 years ago and found a bunch of human cremains which he stole. They were transported by him or another to the UK and were then given to the Imperial War Museum (I expect better of them and at least a modicum of detective work and IQ applied) which accepted both them and the crazy story that went with them.
The IWM then did slightly less than f--k all with them save to put them in a box and forget about them. Yet the claim in the story is that these remains are from six JEWS (I'll get to this madness in a minute), five adults and one child.
Now that we are in holocaust remembrance month it all comes out and hey presto we have world wide media reporting this stupidity.
So how on earth would they know these remains are a)from jews, b)were from Auschwitz, c) from people who were murdered and d)are from six people one of whom was a child???
Isn't it the case that recorded deaths (the holocaust claims of gassings and mass murder at the camps in particular Auschwitz, were from those not recorded in the system) are in the main from Catholics not jews. Thus the likelihood of these cremains being from jews is at best 50/50 and in reality much less than that, yet they appropriate all the given guilt and media coverage and whine as usual that they are the worst treated and the usual nonsense.
Those who have read the massive amount of media on this story may have found other holes in this laughable charade, please join in...
LONDON — The remains of six unidentified Holocaust victims were buried Sunday at a Jewish cemetery, after spending years in storage at a British museum.
The Imperial War Museum found the ashes and bone fragments during a stock-taking last year. They had been given to the museum, along with other items from the Auschwitz concentration camp, by an anonymous donor in 1997.
Tests determined the remains belonged to five adults and a child. Hundreds of mourners watched as they were buried Sunday at a cemetery outside London, in a coffin with earth from Israel.
