Why Didn't Holocaust Victims Fight Back?

I saw this image on a friend's Facebook wall today which prompted me to think... and reply.

The Holocaust, despite a vocal handful of deniers, was a tragic and real event in world history.

While the image and caption here offer a warning to Americans that should be considered, it also portrays significant misconceptions about the Holocaust that should be dealt with.

First, six million people did not perish in the Holocaust. Over 11,000,000 died.

Second, holocaust survivors and their children take great exception to the notion that Jews (the largest, though not only, group of victims) did not fight back.

Holocaust Victims DID Fight Back

Historians point to numerous acts of defiance and a handful of times large scale resistance was mounted, most notably the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, as proof victims did not always march blindly to their death.

However, this was far from the only uprising to be found in the annals of history. Jewish partisans rose up against their oppressors despite the harsh odds. I encourage you to consider the true story of these Jewish partisans who fought the Nazis during World War II as described in the PBS documentary Resistance. (Click Play on the video to watch the full documentary free.)

Who Blindly Followed Death?

Yes, many Holocaust victims were duped into believing circumstances weren't as dire as they were.

This is understandable. Who can fathom the depths of human depravity that would fashion the world's first facilities to mass exterminate millions of fellow human beings?

Most of us want to believe in the kind spirit of humanity despite evidence to the contrary. And most of us cling to hope beyond hope.

Sadly, history repeatedly shows the heart is desperately wicked: who can know it?

Yet the true blindness wasn't found in the Holocaust's victims or survivors.

The blind were the common members of German society.

How Do You Kill 11 Million People?

Beside the obvious comparisons many make with gun rights and other freedoms, there is one critical aspect of American society which parallels Hitler's Germany leading up to the Holocaust.

A dearth of truth.

Lying politicians and the corruption found between big business and government regulation has become so commonplace as to no longer inspire outrage in Americans. (I'm a firm believer in the free market and capitalism, but corruption is wrong no matter where it's found.)

What once would have led to cries for impeachment is now a weekly or daily ho-hum news headline to soon be replaced by the next scandal.

The problem in America - just like in Nazi Germany - is a lack of insistence by the public on truth and right. We're so off base I wonder if half of Americans could even define where right is any more.

So yes, we would do well to heed the warning in the image.

I don't see any extermination camps on the horizon in America.

But I don't believe the Germans did in the 1930s, either.

Beside watching the movie above, I HIGHLY recommend buying and READING "How Do You Kill 11 Million People" - this short, 80-page book by Andy Andrews.

It's a true eye opener to the foundation of the Holocaust. Particularly, it helps us understand how so many everyday Germans could let such outrageous events happen all around them without lifting a finger to prevent them.

Will WE learn from this history lesson? Or not?

    Did the NWO take down the video? They recently made their interference in my affairs known by disabling audio on YouTube sites I have frequented on subjects they don't like me to know about, i.e. experiences of Phil Schneider and Al Bielek. I know this by the fact that the audio works on other types of sites or ones I have not yet spent a lot of time on, while anything I had watched lots of from these guys I suddenly cannot hear the audio for. A modern-day prophet named Patricia [something?] was another one that apparently upsets them, which only lends credence to what she said God showed her. The thing is, I watched all of these videos so much that I remember almost all of what was said, so interference by NWO ppl only makes the messages credible! Also, when I recently did call center work from home I got heavy breathing and other interfering phone calls that were so frequent that I don't believe they were all from late-night bored men. I just gotta wonder.

    I'm with you, my friend, on what you are doing. I hope to join you guys in AWAI in a couple of months. Unfortunately, I think your prepper market is the market I will want to reach too, but I can't compete with you. This site and your experience are awesome! Although I do have both a marketing degree and a communications degree in addition to much supply chain experience as relates to commercial aircraft manufacturing, my interest lies in helping people prepare for the evil future the elite have in store for us.

    I'm almost done trying to persuade family and friends that major calamities are coming. They'll only continue to make jokes about me, do nothing for themselves and then come for the supply I hope to afford some day if they know where I live at that time. So I think it would be more productive to help the people who "get it" - the ones who "have an ear."

    Thanks for listening.

      When the government wants to take care of everything in the country ,guys, it looks like socialism (communism). I have lived in that system for 25 years (former USSR), Praise God it’s been broken by our Mighty God. First they say they care about everything then they start to controll through their “care”. May be you won’t believe me ,but with the time people(mostly unbelievers in the country) start putting their trust into government ,like in God. Those who want to take God’s place in people’s lives are sinners and don’t know God.

      That's the best answer by far! Thanks for contributing.

    Thanks for the note - just saw this one. It appears the video was taken down since I originally shared it here last year but that could simply be PBS wants to make money from it now as I see you can purchase the video here: http://www.shoppbs.org/product/index.jsp?productId=3372554

    Their intellectual property and can't fault them for earning some money from it... not necessarily anything nefarious. 🙂

    And there's more people every day looking into preparing for an uncertain future. Some estimates place the number of preppers over 3 MILLION! So more than enough market share left if you ever want to jump in the preparedness market copywriting waters with me.

    Until then, keep your ears to the ground and your powder dry.
