Nazi soldiers would line Jewish children up along a pit – toddlers some of them – and shoot them in the head one by one. Others would be torn from their mothers’ arms and herded into cattle wagons where they would either die in transit or end up being gassed in the gas chambers of Nazi extermination camps.
Inmates recall regularly hearing cries of “mummy, mummy” as the children were murdered.
These were the ‘lucky’ ones. Older children would often be forced to work in Nazi Labour camps where they would slowly die of disease, or were slowly worked and starved to death.
Approximately 1.5 million children were murdered by the Nazis in this way.
THIS IS THE REALITY OF THE HOLOCAUST. That is the reality of real antisemitism.
This is what my own father – an unpolitical man – wrote on Facebook this year about the murder of his own Jewish grandmother at the hands of the Nazis:
Today is Holocaust Memorial Day.
I can’t help but get upset and very angry about something that happened so many years ago.
My grandmother on my father’s side a frail, old, innocent, lady, who never did anyone any harm was stripped naked herded into a “shower room” in front of young German soldiers, probably laughing, then gassed, and dumped in a pit!
I sadly never had the chance to meet her, but I often think of her and wonder how could any other human do that to an old lady.
Very hard to forgive!
This is why I am INCANDESCENT with rage at how anti-Corbynites in the right-wing press, in the Tory Party and on the right of the Labour Party are using this horror for their own political ends and abusing the memory of these victims for the sake of petty party politicking.
Margaret Hodge even compared the plight of Jews fleeing the Nazi horror to her own recent petty party spat.
HOW DARE SHE AND OTHER ANTI-CORBYNITES BELITTLE THE HOLOCAUST JUST BECAUSE THEIR PARTY CHOSE A PARTY LEADER THEY DON’T LIKE.
This disgusting abuse of the tragedy of so many millions has to stop. NOW.
Please share. Thank you.
