These past days marked the 70 years of liberation of the infamous Death Camp back in Auschwitz, Poland. Men like the ‘Angel of Death’, Josef Mengele served here during the War and performed unholy experiments on human beings. Doctor Mengele alone was responsible for the deaths of 400 thousand minorities, amongst them, mostly Jews. To call this animal a ‘Doctor’, a man that left his Hippocratic Oath in the gutter of madness!
However, other people did serve as slave labour inside the Camp. Those other minorities were not only Jews but Gypsies, Homosexuals, Jehovah’s Witnesses, people with mental illnesses and political prisoners. These were the targets of the SS troops and Nazi Germany’s brutality. All to eliminate those mentioned above from the face of the earth.
For six long years the horrors continued until the allies invaded Poland and liberated these poor souls. Out of 12 million killed in the Death Camps (Jews were half that number), at least two million of its victims came from Auschwitz.
The Nazis devised a plan and ‘thanks’ to Joseph Goebbels came out with a systematic solution of elimination. The strategy was as follows: those unfit for labour, as the elderly and children would be placed into the gas chambers soon after their arrival and killed off immediately. The others would serve as the slave workforce for the 3rd Reich. Sometimes in one day, 10,000 victims would be forced into gas chambers.
To call Auschwitz the worse Concentration Camp is an understatement. This machination of horror was insane and full of sheer brutality. In a time when the Aryans (Hitler believed to be the pure race) wanted to impose their brute mentality and blame all their problems on minorities; sounds a lot like present-day mass murderers and their stupid excuses on why they kill. There are no reasons to justify the insanity of losers whom perpetrate these actions.
By the War’s end, many of the Nazi war criminals [in the thousands] cowardly fled Germany for places like: Bariloche, Argentina or Brazil. Mengele had a heart attack and drowned in Brazil, never to face criminal charges. Adolf Eichmann was caught in Argentina nearly 20 years later and taken to Israel by the Mossad (Israeli Spy Agency), where he was hanged for his war crimes. People whom are usually cowards and guilty, run…
This is a dedication to remember the brave victims and that acts like these should never be repeated! That’s why, “We never forget!”
Another people to dedicate this writing are the survivors, without there sacrifices I wouldn’t be here. What greater revenge than to have survived, to live and flourish in prosperity.
To the minorities of the world, this is my dedication—you are ‘the salt of earth’. May humanity stop these ridiculous waves of ignorant-hate crimes across the world! And teach the substitution of racism and prejudice for love, acceptance and tolerance. Thank you!
