      Sobrevivientes y delegaciones de varios países conmemoran este domingo en Auschwitz-Birkenau el 74 aniversario de la liberación de este campo de concentración, donde los historiadores estiman que fueron asesinadas más de un millón de personas.
      Los sobrevivientes llevaban bufandas de rayas que recordaban a sus uniformes en el campo, y algunos portaban una letra “P” roja, el símbolo que los alemanas empleaban para señalar que eran polacos Durante la jornada, varios ex prisioneros compartirán su experiencia con los asistentes, para unirse después en una oración en recuerdo de las víctimas que perecieron en este recinto de muerte Los actos conmemorativos dieron arranque con una ofrenda floral en el recinto del antiguo campo de exterminio. Las ofrendas fueron colocadas en el “Muro de la Muerte” El muro de la muerte se ubica en el patio del bloque 11 y a partir del otoño de 1941 fue el escenario de fusilamientos masivos de prisioneros Autoridades alemanas y polacas participaron del evento Activistas de ultraderecha también se sumaron a la ceremonia Auschwitz-Birkenau estuvo operativo desde 1940 hasta el 27 de enero de 1945, cuando fue liberado por el ejército soviético Se estima que más de un millón de personas, en su mayoría judíos, perecieron en Auschwitz y en el campo anexo, Birkenau, (Oswiecim y Brzezinka, en polaco) debido a los malos tratos, las cámaras de gas Zyjklon B, el hambre, el agotamiento y las enfermedades Hoy, Auschwitz-Birkenau es patrimonio de la Humanidad de la Unesco y un museo-memorial de 200 hectáreas visitado cada año por más de un millón de personas (Fotos: Reuters)

      Lesson for today. (John 17:3) “Why, Lord, Did You Remain Silent?” THESE were the words of Pope Benedict XVI, who visited the former concentration camp at Auschwitz, Poland, on May 28, 2006. 
      At the site where the Nazis killed hundreds of thousands of Jews and others, he added: “How many questions arise in this place! 
      Constantly the question comes up: Where was God in those days? Why was he silent? How could he permit this endless slaughter, this triumph of evil? . . . We must continue to cry out humbly yet insistently to God: Rouse yourself! Do not forget mankind, your creature!” The pope’s speech gave rise to animated reactions. Some detected revealing omissions, such as his failure to mention the anti-Semitism that was associated with atrocities at Auschwitz. 
      Others read into his words an attempt to play down the request of Pope John Paul II for forgiveness of sins that the church committed. 
      A Catholic journalist, Filippo Gentiloni, observed: “It was, however, logical that many commentators when confronted with the difficult question regarding where God was—a question without an answer—instead requested an answer to the easier question: Where was Pius XII?” The commentators were referring to Pope Pius XII’s silence during the Holocaust. The Holocaust and all the other acts of genocide committed throughout human history prove that “man has dominated man to his injury.” (Ecclesiastes 8:9) 
      Furthermore, man’s Creator has not been silent in the face of so much horror. Through the pages of the Bible, he has revealed his reasons for allowing wickedness. God has also assured us that he has not forgotten mankind. In fact, the time period during which God has permitted man to rule himself will soon come to an end. (Jeremiah 10:23) 
      Would you like to know more about GodÂ’s purpose for us? JehovahÂ’s Witnesses will be happy to help you to see the BibleÂ’s answer to the questions that perplexed Pope Benedict XVI. - JW.ORG

      She is Deliana Rademakers.  She was born in 1923.
      She was a Jehovah's Witness who was arrested while preaching from house to house. After being imprisoned in the occupied Netherlands, she was deported to Auschwitz to Ravënsbruck concentration camp. Deliana was registered on November 20, 1942 with the number 25563. In her farewell letter to her family, she shared her hope of freedom and spoke of Psalm 18: 5 [...]
      Then she sent greetings to her mother, her family , and the congregation where she met with the words "be brave and fearless. Because Jehovah is with us...  what is it that people can do to us?
      According to the death certificate, Deliana died on December 10, 1942.
      The Nazi ideology was completely against morality and good manners. The incomplete documentation and the various ways in which the prisoners were qualified makes it almost impossible to determine how many Jehovah's Witnesses were at Auschwitz. However, as far as was known, 387 of our brothers died in this field in a span of 5 years. This includes at least 138 people classified as the category "IBV" (Internationale Bibelforscher-Vereinigung) International Society of Bible students, who were marked with the purple triangle...
      She  is  in  Jehovah's  MEMORY.....

      Am 22. März 1943 wurde der Bau des Krematoriums IV in Auschwitz II-Birkenau abgeschlossen
      Der Entkleidungsraum und die Gaskammer wurden im Erdgeschoss gebaut. Die Gaskammer (auf der Rückseite des Archivfotos sichtbar) war in drei Räume unterteilt und hatte insgesamt 236,78 Quadratmeter. Die Außenwände hatten Löcher mit gasdichten Falltüren zum Einsetzen von Zyklon B. In der Mitte des Gebäudes befand sich der Entkleidungsraum. Im Hintergrund - ein Krematoriumsofen mit acht Öfen. Nach Berechnungen deutscher Hersteller konnten in diesem Krematorium alle 24 Stunden 768 Leichen verbrannt werden. Das Krematorium wurde am 7. Oktober 1944 von den Gefangenen des Sonderkommandos bei ihrem Aufstand niedergebrannt und anschließend demontiert.

      22 March 1933 | 85 years ago the first official concentration camp was opened in Nazi Germany at the site of an unused gunpowder and munitions factory near the town of Dachau 16 km from Munich. It was indented to hold political opponents of NDSAP.
      The first commandant of Auschwitz Rudolf Höss began his career in SS-Totenkopfverbände in KL Dachau. He was assigned there in December 1934 & held the post of Blockführer. Another link between the two camps is the use of "Arbeit macht frei" slogan at their gates.
       
      On March 22, 1943 the construction of crematorium IV was completed at Auschwitz II-Birkenau
      The undressing room and the gas chamber was built on the ground level. The gas chamber (visible at the back of the archive photograph) was divided into three rooms and had a total of 236.78 square meters. The exterior walls had holes with gas proof trapdoors for inserting Zyklon B. In the middle of the building there was the undressing room. In the back - one eight-oven crematorium furnace. According to the calculations by German manufacturer, 768 corpses could be burned in this crematorium every 24 hours. Crematorium was burned by the Sonderkommando prisoners in their revolt on October 7, 1944 and subsequently dismantled.

    • John Houston said: Sure it was. Read any decent books on geology and paleontology. The earth formed about 4.7 billion years ago, the earliest traces of life are at least 3.5 billion years old, macroscopic life with hard parts first appeared about 550 million years ago. Within a short time predators appeared. Do you not accept this? Ah, you're a young-earth creationist. No wonder you say such things. So if scripture said the moon is made of cheddar cheese, would you believe it? So you think the Bible trumps science and the fossil record. Most predators are both scavengers and active hunters. Problem solved. Predators that also scavenged. The fossil record records plenty of examples of predator/prey interaction. For example, many trilobites, up to 520 million years old, exhibit bites taken out of their shells. A few of these exhibit partially healed bite marks, showing that they survived an attack and lived on. That is not possible in a young-earth creationist view. So again, which do you accept? The fossil record and science, or the fallible biblical interpretations of a few religious leaders?
    • I would like to say this... when I read about the creation, life was not created as "red in tooth and claw" as you put it. Life was not eating each other to exist. At death maybe, but no life form was hunting another for food in the beginning. Things have to make sense if one believes in scripture. Can't believe in one concept and not another. If it is written that life was to eat, and that was ALL LIFE, green vegetation, then common sense would tell me, the only meateating was going on at death, scavengering a carcass. No, wild ferocious dinosaurs as science think they know from bones. But ask yourself, what cleaned away these massive bodies after they died? We have sharks in the seas, what is left over it settles on the bottom for scavenging. And we see that today. Animals not created to live forever had to be removed, cleaned up after, who,did that Adam? Come on think about it.
    • And yet the Prism and South of Baghdad says otherwise.
    • Yes. But with no change to the meaning or interpretation of the term "high crimes and misdemeanors" as we can see by every example of those officials who were impeached during the years when that phrase still held the British meaning. And we can also compare every example of those officials who were impeached in Britain during the centuries and decades leading up to the US Constitution, and beyond. I should also add that I think Trump is guilty of many abuses of power. If he was right about the way that he says Obama was guilty of abuses of power (and I think he was) then Trump must be guilty by his own admission. I also think that Trump definitely had in mind a quid pro quo with Ukraine. This doesn't mean that he got his way, however. The people around him often tend to reel him in, or just end up doing the more politically legal thing, even if Trump is ready and proud to do something illegal or unethical. Even if Trump only did the right thing after he was "caught" as Democrats would like to say, it doesn't make the desire to do the wrong thing, or even the request "impeachable" on its own. Trying to do the wrong thing, is not the same as doing it. One can point out the fact that aid was held up, and even that it was held up so that he would get something he wanted of personal benefit. But if the other side did not give him what he wanted, then we don't have the crux of the quid pro quo anyway. Personally, I don't even think it's the right thing to give aid to Ukraine. The whole point is to paint Russia as an evil adversary or enemy when we are not at war, or shouldn't be. We keep a proxy war going through Ukraine only because we (and especially Democrats) love the idea of a powerful bullying empirical power that shows it wants to stand up to Putin, even if this teases out a WWIII. The Democrats want to look even stronger against Putin, because they are still stuck on this missed chance to make it look like Trump is weak on Putin, or somehow in cahoots with Putin. Trump actually tends, most of the time, toward a foreign policy that is less hawkish than Democrats. Of course, that probably doesn't sit well with several of the military agencies and contractors who "need" more war. Many of Trump's "walkbacks" have been over times when he wanted to scale back military operations and expenditures, but came back the next day to show that it wasn't a real scaling back. Some say they can see a pattern which was especially predictable with Bolton, Pompeo, etc. As his advisors and cabinets change personnel, his own statements will still always be unpredictable, but his "walkbacks" are less so.  After listening carefully to a few minutes of the testimony today, I'm thinking that Biden's son was picked by Burisma for the same reason that a corrupt company like Theranos put Reagan-era George Schultz on its board. It is a way to pay for some credibility or even protect from too much inquiry or investigation. And after watching him become the most hated mayor in America, Giuliani is just about the kind of person I would expect to be looking for these same kinds of deals for his friends and relatives. Also I got the impression that the phone transcript of Trump's "perfect" call is not the full transcript. There was too much legal activity going on immediately after the call to make sure that transcript would become legal. There were some hints in the way legal-savvy people word their answers that raised some flags for me.  
    • And, as I remember, the Colonists thought the British Interpretation of how things should be handled that was an onerous burden to them ... sufficient enough to go to war against the mightiest  army and navy of that time period.
