Courtroom pic of the Nuremberg Nazi Trials following WWII. Bringing these Nazi German monsters to justice was one of history’s most notable moments. Nothing could be more appropriate than to make them accountable for their crimes against humanity.

Evil knows no boundaries. Its destructive path is littered with traces of historical evidence from living survivor’s memories to their marked bodies. Crimes against humanity have been perpetrated by a comparatively small percentage against those whom have been the massive target of their heinous crimes. No one event in human history has left such an utter impressionable negative black scar, than the Nazi German Holocaust of Jewish people and others.

When American soldiers spread across Germany immediately following the end of WWII, General Eisenhower mandated that soldiers take German citizens on concentration camp tours. Eisenhower wanted the German people to have full knowledge of what took place in their own country. He wanted the display of crimes against humanity to be indelibly stuck in the German culture’s mindset. Eisenhower also desired to show through photograph and movie projector evidence the widespread sickening, heart rending and horrifying scale of Nazi war crimes. Instinctively he knew that the horrendous Holocaust would be a future subject of denial. So great was the Nazi German crimes against humanity, that the Nuremberg trials began,  bringing to justice those most responsible for the imprisonment, torture and deaths of millions of individuals.

This Moralmatters.org author encourages you, this website’s visitor,  to read the entire following New York Times piece. It is a sobering reminder of what takes place when evil people take control of a culture and of a nation. Also, do your own Internet research on the Holocaust. And, ask yourself: “Could such a thing happen today in my own country?”

The Holocaust Just Got More Shocking – nytimes.com/2013/03/03/

Excerpt:

>>>>>>>>>> The brutal experience of Henry Greenbaum, an 84-year-old Holocaust survivor who lives outside Washington, typifies the wide range of Nazi sites.

When Mr. Greenbaum, a volunteer at the Holocaust museum, tells visitors today about his wartime odyssey, listeners inevitably focus on his confinement of months at Auschwitz, the most notorious of all the camps.

But the images of the other camps where the Nazis imprisoned him are ingrained in his memory as deeply as the concentration camp number — A188991 — tattooed on his left forearm.

In an interview, he ticked off the locations in rapid fire, the details still vivid.

First came the Starachowice ghetto in his hometown in Poland, where the Germans herded his family and other local Jews in 1940, when he was just 12.

Next came a slave labor camp with six-foot-high fences outside the town, where he and a sister were moved while the rest of the family was sent to die at Treblinka. After his regular work shift at a factory, the Germans would force him and other prisoners to dig trenches that were used for dumping the bodies of victims. He was sent to Auschwitz, then removed to work at a chemical manufacturing plant in Poland known as Buna Monowitz, where he and some 50 other prisoners who had been held at the main camp at Auschwitz were taken to manufacture rubber and synthetic oil. And last was another slave labor camp at Flossenbürg, near the Czech border, where food was so scarce that the weight on his 5-foot-8-inch frame fell away to less than 100 pounds.

By the age of 17, Mr. Greenbaum had been enslaved in five camps in five years, and was on his way to a sixth, when American soldiers freed him in 1945. “Nobody even knows about these places,” Mr. Greenbaum said. “Everything should be documented. That’s very important. We try to tell the youngsters so that they know, and they’ll remember.”……..

…….. When the research began in 2000, Dr. Megargee said he expected to find perhaps 7,000 Nazi camps and ghettos, based on postwar estimates. But the numbers kept climbing — first to 11,500, then 20,000, then 30,000, and now 42,500.

The numbers astound: 30,000 slave labor camps; 1,150 Jewish ghettos; 980 concentration camps; 1,000 prisoner-of-war camps; 500 brothels filled with sex slaves; and thousands of other camps used for euthanizing the elderly and infirm, performing forced abortions, “Germanizing” prisoners or transporting victims to killing centers.

In Berlin alone, researchers have documented some 3,000 camps and so-called Jew houses, while Hamburg held 1,300 sites.

General (later U.S. President) Dwight D. Eisen...

Dr. Dean, a co-researcher, said the findings left no doubt in his mind that many German citizens, despite the frequent claims of ignorance after the war, must have known about the widespread existence of the Nazi camps at the time.

“You literally could not go anywhere in Germany without running into forced labor camps, P.O.W. camps, concentration camps,” he said. “They were everywhere.” >>>>>>>>>> – nytimes.com/2013/03/03/

  1. Apparently your critical faculties have deserted you. You might learn a thing from this theses that cost a Jewish professor his job:

    http://www.vho.org/aaargh/fran/livres8/hay.pdf

    • Robert in Arabia –

      Thank you for visiting http://www.moralmatters.org and for your comment. If your comment and thesis link is referring to the notion that the Holocaust wasn’t what it was (and is) reported and documented to have been, then I can’t concur with your opinion.

      • You did not have the guts to read an academic thesis that disagrees with your politically correct and gullible acceptance of the holocaust cult. Reported and documented are not the same thing. One would have thought your research into Sandy Hook would have taught you that.

    • The author of that MA thesis (as in Dr. Hayward himself) has consistently repudiated that thesis. You are aware of that, right?

  2. What about taking a look at the terror that killed more than 50million throughout its reign. Trotsky, lenin and stalin and the bolshevik (red/jewish) revolution. Makes nazi germany look like playschool. Or are we not allowed to discuss this subject? Personally I do not believe much of these new claims. If at first you don’t succeed, lie, lie again. Now there are these new claims to debunk. However we are not allowed to scrutinize anything from this era or we will be labled anti semitic. Even the mention of bolshevik revolution and communism in soviet russia being jewish will get you this badge. The world is tired of hearing about 6 million reported for decades prior to ww2 being thrown in thei faces. Seems everybody is now aware of this hoax and 6 million figure which is why these new claims are being put out. Get a life holocaust worshippers. It did not happen as you have been told and the red /communists win hands down when it comes to comparison to nazi germany. You are sad example of someone who claims to seek truth.

    • lolathecur –

      Thank you for visiting http://www.moralmatters.org and for your comment (of denial) about the full thrust of the Nazi Germany WWII Holocaust. Before I posted this Moralmatters article, I was (already) anticipating some Holocaust deniers (at least to various degrees) to come out of the culture’s political correctness woodwork.

      As to your (implied) assertion that Communist crimes against humanity were greater in scale, numbers wise; I would not doubt. But what makes the German Nazi Holocaust crimes against humanity so distinct, is the systematized (attempted) eradication of a nation’s (whole) race of people. Also, what makes it so distinct, is the historical documentation that was intended by American liberators and the subsequent Nuremberg Trials. Had not all that taken place, those who accept the Holocaust as genuinely historical, would now be considered the culture’s conspiracy theorist carnival barkers. [Incidentally, “this” (I believe) is one of the reasons why the present Obama White House occupier’s administration has been and is so intent to continue its feverish historical revisionism of Obama’s presidential illegitimacy and his usurpation to the high office of US chief executive]

  3. Be careful, the Zionist is keen of using the Christian to promote their unholy, Jesus-denying agenda. Don’t be a pawn in their game.

    Do you see what they really think of us? There are many more links of Jews accosting good Christians.

    • Sherman Burrows –

      I don’t doubt that what you say and evidence is not a practice of some Jewish people. Hatred and prejudice are not restrictive of various racial and ethnic groups. I believe that any racial and ethnic group can and does come forth with some one-sided perceptions.

      • I detect that you do not hold the Jew to the same degree of scrutiny as the Muslim. We know the evil ways of Islam. Remember, it is the Jew who holds three seats on our Supreme Court, a disproportionate amount in Congress and as White House staff, they dominate banking, finance, Hollywood, pornography, and law in this country despite their small numbers. Be wary of those who wish to play Christians for the fool. Remember, they think they are God’s chosen ones. All who deny Christ are the true enemy of Christians be they Jew, Muslim, Buddhist, or especially Hindu.

        • Sherman –

          I don’t view people as you apparently do in the telescoping fashion of race and ethnicity.

          • Sir, you titled this “The German People Knew”. Is that not a blanket statement against an ethnic group.

            I, as you, should apply telescoping scrutiny to those who do not recognize Jesus. It is our duty to save them from damnation.

          • Sherman –

            I’ve given you adequate consideration to comment regarding this Moralmatters.org posting. Now, it is time for others (if they may, to give theirs); so consider any further comments by you to be closed on this article posting.

            I think that based upon your incessant comments it can be included that you have a certain “thing” for Jewish people; and, to at least a certain extent, you are a Holocaust denier.

            Furthermore, I believe you forget that Jesus Christ was a Jew. His immediate 12 disciples were Jews. The whole Old Testament and Christian Scriptures were humanly penned by Jews, (of course under God the Holy Spirit’s direction and inspiration).

            Sherman – You’ve said enough about Jewish people to make one like myself believe that you have it in for them. Your bigotry shows. Why don’t you give this special race of people special complimentary consideration? You claim to be a Christian; yet, don’t you realize what Jesus stated in the Gospel of John 4, that “salvation is of [emanates] from the Jews?” You ought to be rejoicing in that Jewish heritage; yet, you illustrate by your remarks that you continually speak negatively about them!

            You need to think more positively about the Jewish people. The Jews as a race have been highly favored by the Triune God whom you claim to offer your allegiance. Can’t you at least say something good about Jewish people? Don’t you also realize all the inventions and technology that have been attributed to Jews?

            Finally, I think that you ought to evaluate your self-proclaimed Christianity. Also, check out the Gospel of Matthew 25 and what Jesus stated about the “least of these my brethren.”

            As to your insinuating snipe about me pointing out the German people, I will tell you that my ethnic background is mostly German. And, I will further state that I am not proud of my WW II era ancestral heritage. While I write this comment reply to you, I am listening to the German (George Frideric Handel’s “Messiah) which is accredited to be one of the greatest of all musical compositions. I remarked to my wife at dinner that one of history’s greatest (and saddest) ironies is that Germany was the culture and land of the (enlightened) Protestant Reformation which broke away from the Dark Ages of the then corrupted Roman Catholic Church; yet, Germany (then) became the place and culture of one of history’s greatest barbaric experiences – namely, the Holocaust.

  4. There is much evidence that this so-called Holocaust is a grand exaggeration. There are many researchers who have found the death tolls to be wildly inaccurate. Yes, Jews were imprisoned, tortured, and killed by the Nazis. I do not believe it is anywhere near 6 million. Any one who questions this is labelled an anti-Semite by Jews.

    One must ask the question, why the Jews are so insistent on injecting the Holocaust into our American culture. It is an omnipresent phenomenon. We hear little in comparison to the genocide of Pol Pot, Rwanda, African slavery, Armenian genocide, and Israeli support of Apartide. Why must we have Holocaust museums all over the United States? Is it not strange they could not find a real Holocaust rail car and just used “one similar”.

    http://www.ushmm.org/wlc/en/article.php?ModuleId=10005445

    Surely truth seekers must smell something fishy here.

    • Sherman –

      Your purported example of not finding “a real Holocaust rail car” lacks. I think you need to guard yourself over excessive obsessing about the large scale (alleged “lesser numbers”) regarding the Holocaust.

  5. To not obsess over the truth would be a sin. Your pursuit of Resident Obama’s birth place is a similarly just obsession.

  6. Sherman –

    I repeat myself:

    I’ve given you adequate consideration to comment regarding this Moralmatters.org posting. Now, it is time for others (if they may, to give theirs); so consider any further comments by you to be closed on this article posting.

    • You are a good man, Nathan.

      There have been many holocausts and holomodors throughout history. Russia, Germany & China, now America.

      I cant believe this is happening again.

  7. […] The German people knew: Holocaust crimes against humanity concentration camp sites still being resea… […]

  8. When I was a child in the 1950s, I was personally well acquainted with a refined lady from Austria. She told me in detail the horrific & terrified saga of her escape from the Nazi transport train on it’s way to a concentration death camp in Poland. She and her husband, a Vienna symphony orchestra conductor and music writer, were about to board the train cars…[wagon lits type]. She offered the German guard all of her diamonds. He took the jewels and let them hurry away from the platform. Her husband later died of natural causes and she immigrated to the USA in the mid-1950’s. My lawyer stepfather obtained for her employment as a foreign language translator in ___ ___ Superior Court. She gave me several cigar boxes of her husbands ink pens and music writing tools. That was a truly terrible time.

    • dougster –

      Thank you for the personal account. There are so many of these personal accounts that people could tell. I could tell of my grandmother’s brother and his experience of him being in Nazi Germany immediately following WW II’S end. But, the point being, – as I stated at the beginning of the article; there are personal memories conveyed (historical testimonies) along with the marked (tattooed) bodies. That Holocaust evidence is in addition to the photographs and WWII news reel movie footage. How Holocaust deniers can continue to proliferate their denial, is beyond me!

  9. Is this a joke; the responses from the deniers, that is? At the Wannsee Conference there was much more called on than the “deportation and ghettoization”. Heydrichs original extermination called upon no less than 11 million Jews. The Wannsee Conference was just simply a reaffirmation of what the higher ranking Nazi’s Hitler, Goering, Himmler, etc. had already called for.

    To the main contention…of course they knew, the general German population. How do you ignore packed trains with people marked? How do you ignore the death camps sometimes mere kilometers from areas that you grew up in? The stench of death in itself carried at least that far. Denial of the Holocaust is sheer idiocy. How many people do you see denying the Holodomor? Boznia or Herzegovina? Rwanda? Cambodia? Armenian? Or the Herero and Namaqua Genocide? You don’t. Deniers of the Jewish Holocaust in general are anti-Semites.

    There was not a country on this planet that was not culpable to some extent in the Jewish Holocaust. Even my country which I love, the United States of America, was culpable when they turned away boat loads of Jewish refugees. They can use such excuses as the depression etc. but later acts against the Jewish people in this country in the 1950’s and 1960’s prove this.

    • Raymond –

      Thank you for your visit to http://www.moralmatters.org and for your excellent pro-Jewish comment. I agree. And, I’ll have you know that I have not published some comments submitted in response to this Moralmatters posting. I grow weary of what you (rightly) conclude is, essentially the anti-Semitic nature of those who would either mitigate the scope and gravity of the Holocaust, or deny it, entirely!

      • Seems we (as a people) will always have folks among us who deny atrocities.
        Russia denies their atrocities as well.

        For this reason, we will be victims of what we deny.

        • [To] The Mad Jew –

          Recently I saw a video of a NJ Professor who claimed claim that no mass murders ever occurred in the former Soviet Union. I’m old enough to have known survivors from both Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union so I’m absolutely certain the deniers are living in a fantasy world.

          As to the numbers, when millions of people disappear there is no way to determine an exact number…. The tolls from the Nazi camps included Jews, dissidents, homosexuals, Gypsies, Communists, Eastern European POWS and anyone else the Nazis had a real or imagined grudge against;- a total of over 11,000,000 is not an unrealistic number. The German people had to know something was going on, even if they didn’t know the details. It took a lot of manpower to round up, guard and eliminate all those people. Soldiers don’t live in a vacuum, they talk….

          You won’t hear much about the mass killings in the USSR or other Communist counties because it paints a true picture of Communist dictatorships. Our Schools and Media are controlled by the communist leaning far left- It would be impossible for them to achieve their idea of utopia if people knew the truth.

  10. Whatever the number of victims were, they were huge…millions. Its like arguing about how many angels can dance on a pinhead.

    The US now has a communist person as acting president. Only a communist who HID his past could ever be elected or fraudulently installed as a US president. BHO is a lifelong communist. All of his IDs are fake for a reason. He has paid lawyers over $5 million dollars to hide his past. He pays $250,000 each time one of his crooked lawyers appears in court. He pays $50,000 or more per letter to a Judge. [Actually the DNC pays…so if anyone gave $s to the DNC, it goes for these legal fees.]

    His fake Sandy Hook event is 100% proof that he’s attacking the US from the Oval Office. He’s using fake dead children to further his political agendas. What kind of a person would do that?

    His goal? The total destruction of the US and the burning of the US Constitution. If you do not understand this, you’re brain dead.

  11. You say this is the darkest history has seen, so I implore you to look into Nanking.

    • KAtBarre –

      I’m not sure that I said what you claim. However, I am willing to read what you are suggesting. Please leave an informational link. Somewhere in the past I ran across something about Naking, China.

  12. […] The German people knew: Holocaust crimes against humanity concentration camp sites still being resea… […]

  13. Amazing how Christians, who hate Jews, forget that Christianity came from Jews.

    The Holocaust happened. The Communists killed millions too. And yes those killed by the Communists and tortured and mistreated in various ways should be remembered also.

    Do Holocaust deniers say WWII photos were faked or doctored ( decades before photoshop on computers), that the Allied Forces lied, staged scenes, etc? Can Holocaust deniers prove their charges? No.

    An uncle of mine who was in the Army saw what Hitler did to the Jews, gays, intellectuals, etc. at the concentration camps. Another uncle witnessed what the Japanese did to POW’s.

    So you Holocaust deniers just keep on denying, like those who deny man walked on the moon, and other ridiculous conspiracy theories.

    It can and will happen again. Genocide is happening all over the world today, though not at the scale that the Nazis operated.

    In the U.S.A. blacks are calling for the killing of all Whites. The New Black Panther Party is the group leading this. They follow communism, believe blacks are superior over all races, promote violence, praise criminals and murderers, intimidate Whites, a lot of members are Muslims. Obama and Holder, the Baltimore Mayor and Maryland D.A. and othet black politicians support the Black Panther thugs. So yes, there is always a chance for another Holocaust. ISIS is a good example of mass murderers.
