This is Czesława Kwoka taken at the Auschwitz concentration camp, just minutes before she was murdered by the Nazis.
Her crime was being Polish, Catholic, and 14 years old. Her red triangle was for political prisoners, because of where she was born in Poland. After this photo was taken, she was killed in Auschwitz extermination camp on March 12, 1943 with a phenol injection in the heart. Just before the execution, she was photographed by prisoner Wilhelm Brasse, who would later testify against the executioner of Czeslawa, a woman. Just before the photo was taken, the executioner punched Czeslawa in the face, as the hematoma on her lip shows. This is the face of a terrified little girl, who didn’t even speak the language of her executioner. She had lost her mother a few days before. But she dried her tears to look presentable for the photo. They took her hair and her life, but they couldn’t take her dignity. She was only one of about 250,000 children and minors who were executed in Auschwitz-Birkenau. This is what happens when hatred is cultivated in a nation and thugs gain control. If you don’t think could happen here, you need to read Gulag Archipelago.
According to this article, between 1.1 and 1.6 million people died in Auschwitz.
Here we see the train tracks heading towards Auschwitz. The Jews and others the Nazis wanted to kill were loaded on cattle cars and taken by train to Auschwitz.
According to the Holocaust Encyclopedia at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum the number of Jews killed during the Holocaust is 6 million. A staggering 7 million Soviet civilians were killed. And a further 1.2 million non-Jewish Polish civilians. 3 million Soviet prisoners of war were killed as well.
I’m proud of my PapPap (paternal grandfather) for fighting the Nazis in Europe during World War 2! He helped put an end to the monstrous evil of Nazi Germany.
Never Forget! Sadly man’s heart is desperately wicked and utterly depraved. We have seen tens of millions of people die in genocide since World War 2 ended. We will continue to see such evil until Christ returns!
One response to “Auschwitz”
The basis by which Israeli strategic foreign policy endeavors to negotiate with India and the countries of the Middle East and North Africa.
The non-alignment movement (NAM) promotes neutrality and opposes military alliances. The NAM provides a forum for developing countries to interact constructively with developed countries. The Panchsheel Resolution: POLICY OF RESISTING COLONIALISM, IMPERIALISM, RACISM:
i) Mutual respect for another’s territorial integrity and sovereignty
ii) No retaliation against one another.
iii) No intrusion into each other’s personal lives.
iv) Equality and mutual benefit
v) Coexistence in harmony.
Israel rejects and opposes attempts by foreign nations to determine the international borders of the Jewish State by any foreign nations which do not share a mutual international border with Israel. Distant foreign countries who attempt to determine the international borders of any other country which they do not share with an international border, whether conducted through “diplomacy” on an Ambassador level, or by means of the UN General Assembly resolutions and\or Security Council, that all such attempts violate international law by the crime of imperialism, and possibly racism.
The Charter of the UN does not empower this post WWII establishment organization; the UN has no mandate to negate the internal domestic Sovereignty of any nation. How much more so, foreign powers possess no mandate to determine or establish the international borders of any non-neighboring countries with which they share no common border.
Furthermore, any attempt to transform a stateless refugee population into an independent nation; any attempt to carve up one nation by means of an international proxy alliance, with the objective to establish any refugee non nation into a nation, with the intent to cut this refugee non nation away from any actual pre-existing nation, like British imperialism did with the artificial borders of India and Pakistan, Iraq and Kuwait, such actions define criminal militarism, colonialism and imperialism. Attempts of criminal imperialism, flagrantly/impudently\ violate International law. The illegal US military intervention and invasion into the Vietnam Civil War, the Iraq\Kuwait border dispute, and Afghanistan, these most recent examples, they serve as disgraceful attempts of Great Power imperialism.
No foreign nation(ies) possess any moral mandate to determine the international borders of other countries to whom they do not mutually share a common border. How much more so, any and all attempts by any foreign country(ies) to impose or determine the Capital City and\or the borders of that Capital City, which any sovereign country has chosen as their Capital; which that People rule and establish order within their society and civilization. No foreign power, which includes the United Nations General Assembly or Security Council, has the power to unilaterally declare the borders or Capital City of any sovereign country on the Planet Earth.
