He is a 'Jude'.

Reader comment on item: The Fatal Stabbing of Angelo Frammartino, Palestinian Apologist

While reading the comments about mistaken indentity it reminds of the day when the Nazi occupation Army marched with music into Warsaw Poland in September of 1939. I was a twelve year old jewish boy living in the future jewish ghetto on Niska Street. Similar to other occupation Cities the Warsaw residents greeted the occupiers enthusiatically with applauds and Heil Hitler while not knowing what the future will bring. It was the end of Poland on that day for next five years.

needless to say that on the Street the greeters were tired of the War, hungry an afraid of their occupiers. Despite that, they got the tired hands to applaud the victors and future oppressors. The next the day the Germans brought mobile military kitchens and started to hand to everyone a slice of bread and bowl of soup. I was there, and after standing in a long line I got one portion of bread and a bowl of soup. When I got home I shared the food with three family members. I said look, the Germans are good people, they give food to anyone. Wait, the party was over the next day. I was standing in line like everyone else and almost got the food when a Polish boy my age walked over to the German Soldier and pointed the finger on me saying he is a Jude. That was the end of my journey for food.

Three months later when my mother, sister and older brother where traveling in a polish train in the direction to the Polish- Russian border in order to escape to Russia, a German SS officer came into our cabin asking if there are jews here, A polish young man stood up and told the SS man that this is his family and we are all polish catholics. Because my mother was born with blond hair and we had similar hair this saved our lives to tell the story now. My father was not with us because he used a different route to Bialystok. We survived the War in the Ural Mountains for six years.
