    A student claimed that the Holocaust may not have happened!
    An ARC student asked me the following question during my presentation about the Holocaust which I was victim of:
    What would you say to the student or anyone else who claims that the Holocaust did not happen?
    My answer was: “I was there!”
    20 members of my family including my mother and father died in the Aushwitz-Birkenau extermination camp.
    Ten of thousands have testified to the Holocaust.
    General Dwight Eisenhower warned as he liberated the extermination camps. He said:
    ‘Get it all on record now – get the films – get the witnesses -because somewhere down the road of history, some bastard will get up and say that this never happened’
    I could have added:
    The nature and the number in the millions of the crimes committed against innocent people were such that it is difficult if not impossible by some that a country like Germany with a population of educated, brilliant people in engineering, science, art, music, etc. could have so willingly participated in the Holocaust monstrous crimes. It defies the human logic.
    The atrocities ranged from gassing to drowning, beatings, burning people alive, killing babies and children by throwing them against walls, property crimes, torture, experiments. The crimes carried out by the Nazis were justified as acceptable according to the national laws Hitler passed.
    It is now more than 70 years after the Second World War in Europe ended. I speak in memory of the 6 million Jews, 20 million Russians, 10 million Christians, and 1,900 Catholic priests who were ‘murdered, raped, burned, starved, beat, experimented on and humiliated’ while the German people looked the other way!
    We must do everything possible to make sure that we do not let another Hitler corrupt the minds of good people to be.
