The Mass Extermination of Jews in German Occupied Poland, published December 1942, ignored by the world

Elder of Ziyon 20April2020 http://elderofziyon.blogspot.com/2020/04/the-mass-extermination-of-jews-in.html

The Mass Extermination of Jews in German Occupied Poland was published by the Polish government-in-exile in December 1942 and sent to the foreign ministers of the 26 government signatories of the Declaration by United Nations.

It was the first official document informing the Western public about the Holocaust.[

Though the document contained extensive information on the persecution and murder of Jews in Poland, its effect was limited because many people outside German-occupied Europe found it difficult to believe the Germans were systematically exterminating Jews. After meeting with Jan Karski, who had made multiple undercover trips into occupied Poland and escaped to warn the Allies, Jewish U.S. Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter said he did not think Karski was lying, but that he could not believe him.

Historians are divided as to why the Polish government in exile did not publicize this earlier.

The most important item in the brochure is known as Raczyński’s Note, by Edward Bernard Raczyński, the foreign minister of the Polish government-in-exile. Raczyński discussed the Germans’ initial shooting executions and subsequent lethal gassings of Polish Jews. As horrible as his descriptions are, the reality was even worse.

And the world stayed silent.

JERUSALEM (JTA) — Thousands attended the funeral in Jerusalem for the four victims of the attack on a kosher supermarket in Paris.Yoav Hattab, 21; Philippe Braham, 45;  Yohan Cohen, 22; and Francois-Michel Saada, 64, were buried Tuesday at the Givat Shaul Cemetery. They were killed Jan. 9 at the Hyper Cacher supermarket by an Islamic jihadist.“Dear families, Yoav, Yohan, Philippe, Francois-Michel, this is not how we wanted to welcome you to Israel,” Israeli President Reuven Rivlin said in an address at the funeral. “This is not how we wanted you to arrive in the Land of Israel, this is not how we wanted to see you come home, to the State of Israel, and to Jerusalem, its capital. We wanted you alive, we wanted for you, life.“At moments such as these, I stand before you brokenhearted, shaken and in pain, and with me stands an entire nation.”

The victims “were murdered on the eve of the Sabbath, in a kosher supermarket in Paris, in cold blood, because they were Jewish,” Rivlin said, adding, “This is sheer hatred of Jews; abhorrent, dark and premeditated, which seeks to strike, wherever there is Jewish life.”

He called on the leaders of Europe to work to “commit to firm measures” to protect their communities’ Jews.

The men were killed by Amedy Coulibaly, who took more than 20 people hostage at the market. Coulibaly was killed when police stormed the shop. He reportedly told the hostages during the standoff: “I will die today, but you before. You are Jewish, and today you are going to die.”

Some attending the funeral held signs in French reading “Je suis Juif” and “Je suis Israelien” — “I am Jewish” and “I am Israeli” — above photos of the victims.

The family members recited together the Mourner’s Kaddish after being assisted in tearing their clothes in the traditional Jewish sign of mourning. They then lit memorial torches for their loved ones.

“I have been saying for many years and I say it again today: These are not only enemies of the Jewish people, they are enemies of all mankind,” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said of the terrorists. “It is time for all people of culture to unite and uproot these enemies from our midst.”

Netanyahu issued a call, as he has several times since the attack, for Jews to make their homes in Israel.

“Jews have a right to live in many countries and have full security, but I believe that they know in their heart, there is one country which is their historic home, a state which will always accept them with open arms. This is the hope of the entire Jewish people,” he said.

French government minister Segolene Royal told the mourners in her native language that “Anti-Semitism has no place in France. Each hit suffered by a Jew is a hit suffered by the French people.”

Following her address, Royal bestowed the Order of the Legion of Honor, the country’s highest civilian honor, on each victim, and then went to each family member to express individual condolences.

From Rav Lazer Brody:

A Nazi by Any Other Name…

27April2014 http://lazerbrody.typepad.com/lazer_beams/2014/04/a-nazi-by-any-other-name.htmlIn “Romeo and Juliet” by Shakespeare, Juliet says: “What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.”Tonight and tomorrow is Holocaust Remembrance Day. If it were up to me, I’d remove the “remembrance” part and simply call it “Holocaust Day”. Why? The Holocaust still lurks all around the world. It’s ugly and deadly seeds are germinating and sprouting in the fertile growth medium of growing antisemitism.To paraphrase Juliet, “What’s in a name? that which we call a Nazi by any other name would smell as foul.”Here’s what I mean:

Today’s USA: The Ku Klux Klan, Skinheads and Neo Nazis

Today’s Ukraine: Svoboda

Today’s Italy: Casa Pound

Today’s France: Front Nationale

Today’s Greece: Golden Dawn

Today’s Hungary: Jobbik Party

Every other country in Europe has growist Fascist and neo-Nazi movement, some already violent, like the one in Poland.

Now, let’s add the growing global Jihadi groups, many hiding behind the back of so-called “moderate Islam”, in Scandinavia, the UK, Germany, France and the USA.

How many times have the Iranians, Hizbulla, Hamaz and Islamic Jihad declared their intent to destroy Israel? Don’t be foolish enough to think that they’re only talking about Zionists; that’s merely a polite term for Jew. An Al-Qaida bomb in New York City or a Hizbulla booby trap in Buenos Aires is not intended for Zionists – the target is Jews.

There’s a concept in the Jewish Laws of Purity: Immersion in the mikva doesn’t help someone who is holding a dead mouse in his or her hand.

Why cry about Holocaust Day while perpetuating the Diaspora and being the victim of another potential Holocaust? Why aren’t people reading the global anti-Semitic writing on the wall? Can’t they realize that Hashem is telling everyone that it’s time to come home?

Do you really want to do something about the Holocaust? Do you really want to prevent another Holocaust, G-d forbid?  Rabbi Yehoshua Fass of Nefesh B’Nefesh is a dear friend of mine. Write him an email right now (tell him that Lazer sent you) and tell him that you’re interested in getting the ball of your aliya rolling. He’ll tell you what to do.

The greatest memorial for the 6,000,000 Jews who died in the Holocaust is a strong, truly Jewish homeland. Cherished brothers and sisters, help us build it. Come home now; we’re waiting for you with open arms.

Last week at your Pesach פסח (Passover) Seder when you said “Next year in Jerusalem” did you really talk to your family about making Aliyah (immigration to Israel) and come on home to your real home and homeland! No matter what your situation in life you can make Aliyah and really live and grow as a Jew. Come home to the Land of Emuna

Reb Shlomo Carlebach -The Last Seder In The Warsaw Ghetto- שלמה קארליבאך

Remember that our return to Hashem in the holy Land of Israel is the only guarantee that there’ll never again be a Warsaw Ghetto. Let’s hope that this coming Pesach will be the real freedom holiday for our people Israel, once and for all coming home to the Land of Israel and the rebuilt united Jerusalem, amen.

Shema Yisrael: Yaacov Shwekey

15September2013 http://lazerbrody.typepad.com/lazer_beams/2013/09/shema-yisrael-yaacov-shwekey.html
Rabbi Yosef Shlomo Kahaneman (1886-1969), The Ponovicher Rov of blessed memory, saved orphaned Jewish children from Catholic orphanages after the close of World War II. Although the priests and nuns denied that there were any Jewish children there, The Rov – accompanied by American officers – visited the orphanages at bedtime. He would call out “Shema Yisroel” and instinctly children raised their hands to cover their eyes, while crying in Yiddish, “Mama! Mama!” The holy Skolener Rebbe of blessed memory saved children in like fashion, one of whom lives in Ashdod and frequents our synagogue.

My dear and esteemed friend Yaacov Shwekey sings a moving rendition of the above story in “Shema Yisroel”. In answer to all the Holocaust deniers, here is Yaacov singing with the backdrop of photos and film clips from the Holocaust. If you want to know why we need unshakable emuna and our uncompromising presence in our holy Land of Israel, see this (don’t be discouraged by the first 60 seconds which tells the story of Rabbi Kahaneman in Hebrew). This is a must see:

The home page of Yad VashemYom HaZikaron laShoah ve-laG’vurah (יום הזיכרון לשואה ולגבורה; “Holocaust and Heroism Remembrance Day”), known colloquially in Israel and abroad as Yom HaShoah (יום השואה) and in English as Holocaust Remembrance Day, or Holocaust Day, is observed as Israel’s day of commemoration for the approximately six million Jews who perished in the Holocaust as a result of the actions carried out by Nazi Germany and its accessories, and for the Jewish resistance in that period. In Israel, it is a national memorial day.On Yom HaShoah, ceremonies and services are held at schools, military bases and by other public and community organizations.On the eve of Yom HaShoah and the day itself, places of public entertainment are closed by law. Israeli television airs Holocaust documentaries and Holocaust-related talk shows, and low-key songs are played on the radio. Flags on public buildings are flown at half mast. At 10:00 a.m., an air raid siren sounds throughout the country and Israelis observe one minute of solemn reflection. People stop what they are doing and motorists stop their cars in the middle of the road, standing beside their vehicles in silence as the siren is sounded.

YNet Logo https://www.ynetnews.com/How Nazis taught German children to hate Jews

During the 12 years of the Third Reich, multiple children’s books were produced to instill in young Germans a belief that Jews were greedy, conniving and even murderous

Chen Malul | Published: 21April2020 https://www.ynetnews.com/article/SkCZHw2OI

Among the dozens of children’s authors active during the 12-year reign of the Nazi party over Germany, Elvira Bauer might be the most successful and well known of all.

The secret of Bauer’s success is exceedingly simple: From 1936, every six-year-old German child received a present from the state – a backpack filled with books explaining concentration camps, the importance of obedience and tales of children who grew up to serve in the Fuehrer’s army.

One of the coloring books included in the gift bag is the notorious book “Trust No Fox on his Green Heath and No Jew on his Oath.” The book was written by Bauer and illustrated by Philipp Rupprecht, the caricaturist of the Nazi tabloid Der Stürmer.

While information about her life is scarce, it is known that Bauer wrote her first book at the age of 18, around the same time she embarked on a career as a kindergarten teacher.

The stated purpose of Bauer’s book was to teach the children of Germany how to read. The secondary purpose was to instill feelings of hatred and fear towards Jews from a young age.

When Bauer compared Jews to foxes, she tried to instill two anti-Semitic concepts: Firstly, that Jews were conniving creatures much like foxes and secondly that they spreads disease.

Bauer wrote three other books in the service of Nazi Germany, all dripping with blatant and venomous anti-Semitism.

One such publication was “The Father of the Jews is the Devil,” a book written relatively late by Bauer and that has since been translated to English.

Anti-Semitism also featured in high school classes, where race-based anti-Semitism was taught – no longer was the Jew only responsible for the death of Jesus Christ, from now on the Jew was the enemy of the entire master race.

Bauer’s picture books employ many historic anti-Semitic beliefs and imagery to convey Jews as a lesser race, including early anti-Semitism based on Christian pseudoscience, a variety of folk tales and “real” current events.

In 1938, new children’s book “The Poisonous Mushroom” (Der Giftpilz) was published, penned by Der Stürmer editor Julius Streicher and again illustrated by Rupprecht.

One of the mushroom’s many tales deals with kosher slaughter and depicts Jews as reveling in animals’ prolonged suffering.

The eighth tale in the book depicts the Jews as a potential rapists through a story about a Jewish man who tries to seduce a young German girl with candies only to be arrested by two German police officers.

According to historian Randall Bytwerk, the Nazi expansion of anti-Semitism did not stem from racial difference but on its insistence on depicting Jews as a constant danger and who caused great pain to the world from the shadows.

From an early age, German children were taught that Jews, even their own neighbors, were no more than poisonous mushrooms, conniving foxes, rapists and potential murderers.
