Email Chain: Remember

I received this by email. Whether the quote is true or not, the sentiment is...

Growing up after World War II, when I was a kid I couldn't understand why Eisenhower was so popular. Maybe this will explain why...

General Eisenhower warned us. It is a matter of history that when the Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces, General Dwight Eisenhower 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 road of history some bastard will get up and say that this never happened.'

This week, the UK debated whether to remove the Holocaust from its school curriculum because it 'offends' the Muslim population which claims it never occurred. It is not removed as yet. However, 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, raped, burned, starved, beaten, experimented on and humiliated while the German people 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.

I think it is the height of antisemitism to not only deny but also minimize the shoah. I have had it with any other people, any minorities or whoever that say 'what about slavery, what about this or that?". For years, Jews have fought for the recognition of the suffering of others!

I think for the first time ever, I actually agree with you.
