Holocaust Memorial Day: Auschwitz

This video is from the UK Telegraph.

Hitchcock's Holocaust documentary, "Night Will Fall", should be required in school:  "Viewer beware: Once seen, the graphic images cannot be unseen. Even those who have sat through all nine-plus hours of Claude Lanzmann’s 'Shoah' or watched Alain Resnais’ 'Night and Fog' might not forget what Hitchcock put on display. We see body parts strewn in piles, punctured skulls dotting empty fields, corpses  thrown like mannequins into mass graves, survivors with skeletal frames and hollowed eye sockets staring into the camera." Contrast that with these photos from an SS guard's album.

This is what the Holocaust-deniers want: that you don't see any film footage, that you never see the photographs, that you ignore the witness statements, because then you might tend to believe that the barbaric extermination of 6 million Jews actually occurred. You can't fake crematoria, gas chambers, pits full of bodies, or Mengele's experiments. If it were any other ethnic group but Jews, nobody would have the slightest trouble accepting it.
