The core lie of The Invisibles is the claim that Jews had to remain "hidden" to survive in Berlin. In fact there were significant numbers living openly when the Soviets arrived. The Jewish Virtual Library gives the figure 8,000. Approximately 4,000 were Jews married to German citizens, something which, oddly, gave favored status.
Another fact on the edge of the Memory Hole is the Wartime existence of a large Jewish hospital on Heinz-Galinski Strasse. Jewish doctors and nurses treated Jewish patients throughout the War. Usually explained as a "miracle" the hospital served thousands of people including orphaned children. It appears that Jewish prisoners were brought from prisons and concentration camps to be nursed back to health. Today the hospital mainly serves guest workers from Turkey and the Middle East.
A significant cause for the drop in the Jewish population of Berlin was relocation outside of the City due to massive Allied bombing. There were over 365 raids on the city during the War and British bombers alone dropped 45,517 tons of bombs on the civilians of Berlin. By April 1945 40% of Berlin's population moved out of the capital.
In the last months of the War many protected Jews were drafted into labor service. Berlin resident Victor Klemperer wrote a diary of his wartime experiences filled with complains like not getting good coffee! He describes being moved out of Berlin into a Judenhaus with other mixed couples.
They are certainly making a few "Holocaust" movies every year. Sometimes I'll be able to sit through one, but watching that trailer completely turned me off that movie. How did they get away with not having Ariernachweis? Forgery?
