Remembering the Nazi-Islamic years...

Reader comment on item: [Brandeis University President Jehuda] Reinharz, Israel and Me

Having been born in 1930 into an American family interested in current events, it was easy to be exposed to events leading up to Hitler's incarceration and extermination of Europe's Jews, Gypsies and Anthroposophists. I vividly recall seeing graphic photos in our weekly editions of Life magazine, via radio and movie films exposing the slaughter of Poland's Cavalry by Nazi Panzer tanks during the conquest of Poland, dead Austrians lying in the snow following the Nazi invasion of that country, and on and on.

It became common knowledge to me during the early 1940's of Nazi Concentration Camps existing for the sole purpose of murdering millions upon millions of European Jewish citizens, and all this I vividly remember! To talk to American neighbors returning from the European theater of WWII was horrifying in additional education of the horrors of the Nazi extermination of Jewish people, so politely called the Holocaust.

As I grew up into my later years, it was common to come across displaced Europeans indelibly marked with their concentration camp numbers tatooed onto their wrists! Those who dare to spout there was no Holocaust are denying reality to their own self-serving purposes.

Far more could be stated as a witness to these events, while I shall for now rest my case with the hope there are at least a few individuals who might be open to hearing TRUTH!
