Thanks daddy.



A girl who grew up in a concentration camp was asked to draw a picture of "home" while living in a residence for disturbed children, 1948

Oh man. This one really made me wonder about horrors of the concentration camps.

Yes. Hitler also blamed the Jews for the economic crisis.

He believed that the Jews were an inferior race.

Jews were not considered people by Nazis.

Hmm I don't think I've ever seen that movie.

I watched the Pianist today because it was up on TV and remembered about this thread.

The Pianist is probably one of the best movies I watched.

Posting this picture today because of this historical moment: ‘Naming them is justice’: Poland publishes fullest-ever list of SS personnel at Auschwitz

A sign that reads "Stop" placed near a barb wire is seen at the German concentration camp in Auschwitz-Birkenau

14-year-old Auschwitz prisoner, 1942 colourized

The man who took the picture was quoted saying: "She was so young and frightened. The girl did not understand why she was there or what is being said to her. So this German woman, she took a stick and hit her in the face. She unloaded her anger on the little girl. Such a pretty lady, so innocent. She cried, but she could not do anything. Before the picture was taken, the girl wiped the tears and blood off her face. To be honest, I felt like it was me who got hit in the face, but I couldn't do anything either. They'd have killed me. You were not allowed to say a word."

The girl died in 1943 in Auschwitz, a month later after her mother died.

Out of 230 000 men and women under the age of 18, only 650 survived Auschwitz.

Quite the contrarily I have heard the real reason that prompted Hitler to adopt that inhumane approach towards Jews was because he was scared of them and their superior intellect, or something like that. He believed had he not exterminated them, they would one day take over the world. As he couldnt openly speak about it, he came up with the Aryan race is master race bs and Jews are inferior race bs. He must have thought Jews posed a threat to the Aryans. 65% of European Jews were killed by the time the WWII got over.  If you look at the number of famous Jews who have excelled in various fields of art and science, like Einstein, Oppenheimer etc. And we all know Hollywood is ruled by Jewish people more or less lol.  So perhaps there was some meat in that theory after all u know.

Yes, I think you are right. It was me who made a mistake.

Hitler's first girlfriend was, in fact, Jewish - to top all of your points.
