"... Some Bastard Will Get Up And Say That This Never Happened" -
General Dwight D. Eisenhower. 1945, Germany
Helmet tip to Yankee Charlie

Honestly, I'm not trying to beat up on Britain... but so much blatant stupidity keeps coming out of the UK. And I'm sure many of you have seen this few month old e-mail lighting up the internet. But for those who haven't --- (emphasis mine)

Dwight Eisenhower, when he found the victims of the death camps he ordered all possible photographs to be taken, and for the German people from surrounding villages to be ushered through the camps and even made to bury the dead.

He did this because he said in words to this effect: "Get it all on record now - get the films - get the witnesses - because somewhere down the track of history some bastard will get up and say that this never happened"

"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing" - Edmund Burke

In Memorial
This week, the UK removed The Holocaust from its school curriculum because it "offended" the Muslim population which claims it never occurred. This is a frightening portent of the fear that is gripping the world and how easily each country is giving into it.

It is now more than 60 years after the Second World War in Europe ended. This e-mail is being sent as a memorial chain, in memory of the 6 million Jews, 20 million Russians, 10 million Christians and 1,900 Catholic priests who were murdered, massacred, raped, burned, starved and humiliated while the German and Russian peoples looked the other way!

Now, more than ever, with Iran, among others, claiming the Holocaust to be a myth," it is imperative to make sure the world never forgets.

This e-mail is intended to reach 40 million people worldwide! Be a link in the memorial chain and help distribute this around the world. How many years will it be before the attack on the World Trade Center "never happened" because it offends some Muslim in the U.S.?
And yes --- some of the stats given were off the mark. Such as 20 million Russians not being counted as either Christian or Jew. I'm quite sure that the vast majority of those 20 million were Russian Orthodox, and very few were killed in the Nazi death camps. It was either in battle or in SS massacres on Russian soil. And I really don't know why the Russian people are being accused of "looking the other way". Russia (either the people themselves or Stalin's government) had nothing to do with Hitler's Final Solution. Besides, Stalin was busy killing his own people.

And as far as the 1,900 Catholic priests killed... that number is open to discussion as well. I once had the Auxiliary Bishop for the US Military Archdiocese tell me that the number was closer to 5,000.

But the essential truth here is that millions DID die in the Nazi Holocaust, and there are those in Britain... those in positions of authority and leadership... who are eradicating such from the schools.

And in all fairness, there is some question as if this particular curriculum ban is nation-wide in the UK, as reported by The Times of London, or simply in one northern English city, as reported by Snopes.com.

Either way... it looks as if General Eisenhower was right. Some bastard DID get up and say this never happened.

Not to be disagreeable with you, but, according to Snopes.com only one school banned this from their curriculum. It's like a private school choosing to not teach a particular piece of science.

ANM,
That very well may be true... but like I said at athe end of my post; "it looks as if General Eisenhower was right. Some bastard DID get up and say this never happened."

These muslim bastards always say "it never happened". But what to expect from a religion who's founder was a raiding, murdering pedophile? His deeds are well recorded.

It's a total fabrication.

This went around some friends from Church back in April last year. Living in the UK with two kids in school I was able to check with the school my kids attend, with the local education authority and with a few people I know who teach. It's totally false, and was just the one school that removed it for a particular reason at a particular time, but was not removed totally from their curriculum.

It was not and is not a nationwide ban. Good to keep on these things though, that we shall never forget.

"Besides, Stalin was busy killing his own people."

Yes, multi-millions of his own people but also plenty of others, including many Poles. While still allied with Germany, the Soviets invaded Poland (1940, I beleive) and murdered about 15,000 Poles in the Katyn Forest. Among those killed included approximately 8,000Polish military officers and all the cadets from the Polish militar acadmey, the equivalent of our West Point.

The main point of your post is very worthy of how others are kowtowing to the moslems.

So draw your own conclusions.

This is only the beginning. We've heard the-holocaust-never-existed bit for a while, and many are content to deny, or rationalize such claims. But what ought we make of a quarter of Brits thinking Winston Churchill is a fictional character?
