There are many current hells on Earth right now, not many decades ago. At this very moment, thousands if not millions of people suffer.. Prisoners of opinion are everywhere. We only hear of their suffering when Uncle Sam is not happy with the regime that oppresses them. Remember Saddam?? But there are many dictators worse than Saddam. The following pictures are from a prison in Morocco. Mind you, Morocco is an Arab country that has ties with Israel. So, Uncle Sam is not unhappy with them, I suppose.

Animals rights activists are against such conditions in chicken farms but where are human rights activists?

And I didn't mention Guantanamo and more than 11,000 Palestinian prisoner in more than 30 Israeli jails.

Not to white wash any atrocities Germans committed, but that is correct, and something few Countries like to talk about:

Oct 28, 1938 - Nazis arrest 17,000 Jews of Polish nationality living in Germany, then expel them back to Poland which refuses them entry, leaving them in 'no-man's land' near the Polish border for several months.

In May 1939 - The St. Louis, a ship crowded with 930 Jewish refugees, is turned away by Cuba, the United States and other countries and returns to Europe.
Most of the passengers wound up in concentration camps.

In July 1940 - Eichmann's Madagascar Plan presented, proposing to deport all European Jews to the island of Madagascar, off the coast of east Africa.

March 1, 1941 - Himmler makes his first visit to Auschwitz, during which he orders Kommandant Höss to begin massive expansion, including a new compound to be built at nearby Birkenau that can hold 100,000 prisoners.

This was the beginning of transforming concentration camps into death camps.

June 29/30 1941 - Romanian troops conduct a pogrom against Jews in the town of Jassy, killing 10,000.

We all know what happened afterwards.

One must Marvel at the German Engineering, they have always been quite a bit ahead of the curve. Hense this Web Site and the related Products.

Niiiice.
On hind-site everything is 20/20. That is one of my main objections now but not the only objection.

I have a hard time believing in the number they put out that burned in ovens. Overly exaggerated IMO. I don't doubt the mass graves. And how come we only hear the term "6 million Jews?" What about the others?

Hopefully none too many died in the ovens, unless they were thrown in there while still breathing. I assume you mean the cremation ovens in concentration camps where dead bodies were burned. The ovens were obviously not used to kill people, but to dispose of the human remains.
