"Why I Hate My Uncle," by William Hitler (Look magazine, 1939) – Boing Boing

A copy of Look Magazine from July 4, 1939 will cost you $950, because it has a a six-page photo-illustrated feature by William P. Hitler, called “Why I Hate My Uncle.”

William Patrick Hitler was born in Liverpool in the UK in 1911. His father was Adolf Hitlers brother Alois Hitler. William moved to Germany in 1933 in an attempt to benefit from his uncles position of power. It appears William, who was familiar with Adolfs family background, was an embarrassing thorn in Adolfs side during the 1930s. Moving to the United States in 1939, William served in the US Navy in World War II. After the war, William Hitler changed his last name to Stuart-Houston.

Looks article is written by William and reveals what it was like to be Adolf Hitlers nephew. Here are some excerpts:

The July 4, 1939 issue of Look Magazine is scarce with just the single copy listed for sale on AbeBooks. It is offered by Rare Non Fiction, a seller located in British Columbia, Canada.

Look was a rival to Life Magazine, and was published between 1937 and 1971. Prominently featuring eye-catching photography and well known people, Look employed Stanley Kubrick as a staff photographer from 1946 to 1951.

Originally priced at 10 cents, this copy features Hollywood film stars Hedy Lamarr and Robert Taylor on the cover, and also has articles on Americas most wanted criminals, nurses, and horse racing. It is comfortably the most expensive copy of Look listed for sale on AbeBooks.

Austrian City Puts Nude Statue Donated by Hitler Back on Display – Heat Street

An Austrian city has returned a controversial statue donated by Adolf Hitler to public display.

Linz, one of Hitlers favorite towns in the Third Reich, received the bronze sculpture as a gift from the Fhrer in 1942, at the height of the Second World War.

The artwork, a personal gift from the Nazi leader, was meant to help establish the settlement as one of the cultural capitals of his dominion.

It was set up in one of the citys parks, where it stood for decades as its origin faded from memory. (It is pictured above at the site in 2001)

But in 2008 it was removed after a group of local art students dug up its history and complained.

The bronze has been in storage for almost a decade but will now be made available for public viewings again.

An announcement from a local museum, the Nordico, said that letting people see the statue was an act of remembrance.

It argued that displaying it with large amounts of historical context was better than attempting to dismantle history by hiding it away.

Local politicians were more or less unanimous in supporting the decision, according to the AFP news agency.

Some pointed out that keeping it at an indoor museum will make sure it does not become a site of pilgrimage for Neo-Nazis.

Linz has a personal connection to Hitler, who lived there for eight years while he was growing up.

Like many areas linked to the Nazi leader, it has agonized over the right way to acknowledge the connection in the modern era.

Many sites associated with his life have been demolished, partly to prevent Hitler devotees flocking to them.

His birthplace in Vienna has been subject to a particularly fierce dispute, especially as the owner and the government disagreed over what to do with it.

For decades, the Austrian government rented the property from landlord Gerlinde Pommer to make sure nobody else could misuse the site.

But late last year, authorities decided to pass legislation to reclaim the building, which is due to be knocked down and replaced with either a charity building or government offices.

German paramedic sacked for drawing a HITLER moustache on … – The Sun

Sick prank carried out on drug casualty being transported in ambulance

A PARAMEDIC in Germany has been fired after drawing a Hitler moustache onto the face of an immigrant being ferried to hospital for a suspected drink and drugs overdose.

The incident happened at Christmas but only came to light this week when medical assistant Thomas Wagner posted a video and photos in a WhatsApp chat room set up by him for the Johanitter care group in Frankfurt.

He wrote on a photo of the victim : Victim#1 today: trendy beards.

And a friend responded with a tasteless quip about the Nazi Holocaust writing: The Yolocaust. Another wrote: Oh, how peaceful it slumbers!

Yolocaust yolo stands for you alone referred to selfies taken at sensitive Holocaust remembrance sites in Germany.

On the video the patient is seen slumped over the gurney inside the ambulance.

Wagner is not seen but can be heard saying: Are you coming into the hospital with us to get sober?

The victim responds weakly: Yes.

Then there is more laughter from the ambulance crew when one says: Youre supposed to lie on the stretcher, not over it.

Days later Wagner seemed to realize the error of his ways and posted in the chat room: A few lines on the video I postedit shows how not to do it. I pledge to do better.

And a day later he pleaded with fellow users to erase everything he had posted, adding: I have to accept the consequences of my actions and will today hand in my notice.

digitalpictures-sm@thesun.co.uk

But his bosses beat him to it after viewing the chat room contents and sacked him.

Oliver Pitsch, Johanniter boss for the area, said: We saw the photos and video and his employment was terminated immediately and instantly.

But Wagners woes are not over: his bosses are mulling over filing a criminal complaint about his actions with local prosecutors for failing to properly care for a patient he was responsible for.

Sean Spicer and the ‘anyone I don’t like is Hitler’ rule – New Jersey Jewish News

by Jonathan S. Tobin Special to NJJN

April 27, 2017

The biggest Jewish news story during Passover was the latest example of a rule of political argument: He who mentions Hitler first always loses. I refer, of course, to Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary.

Spicer hit a new low when he seemed to say that Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad was worse than Adolf Hitler. In damning Assad for his use of chemical weapons, Spicer asserted that even Hitler didnt sink to using chemical weapons.

Perhaps Spicer was thinking about the fact that the Germans didnt employ chemical weapons when fighting Allied armies as they had in World War I, when both sides used poison gas as a military weapon. But you dont need to be a historian to know that poison gas played a prominent role in the Nazis war on the Jews. After a couple of inadequate attempts to rationalize his statement, Spicer apologized unreservedly.

While Spicer was a fool to compare anyone, even someone as bad as Assad, to Hitler, the anti-Trump resistance appears to have no such compunctions about the objects of their disdain. Its not enough to disagree with Trump and his minions or even to point out the alleged dangers of their policies. The political left has embraced White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannons credo that politics is warfare, in which anything may be said if it helps delegitimize a foe.

The Trump administration opened itself up to criticism when the president was slow to unreservedly condemn a spate of bomb threats at JCCs. But Jewish liberals werent content with blasting these blunders. Instead they claimed Trump was responsible for inspiring the threats and a new wave of anti-Semitism. But unlike the foolish Spicer, the groups that made those charges didnt apologize when suspects in the JCC threats turned out to be a disturbed Israeli teen and a left-wing American writer.

The Spicer gaffe also overshadowed a deliberate attempt to demonize Jews in the service of the war on Trump just a few days earlier. The Politico website, one of the most well-read and respected sources of political news, published a lengthy piece on the eve of Passover linking the Chasidic movement Chabad to a nefarious network of real estate moguls that tied the Trump family to Russian President Vladimir Putin. The piece, The Happy-Go-Lucky Jewish Group That Connects Trump and Putin, seemed to allege that the activities of Chabad, whose hallmark is Jewish outreach, provide some sort of proof for the charges that Trump is in cahoots with Moscow (an argument that has less cogency now that Trump has taken on Russia over Syria).

But it proved nothing of the sort about Chabad or Trump. Filled with errors and innuendo, the article was as much an example of fake news as anything cooked up by the far left or far right. The Anti-Defamation League correctly condemned it as a calumny that invoked age-old myths about the Jews.

Liberals guilty of anti-Semitism dont excuse offensive conservatives. But the moral of the story is that if you complain about Jew-hatred when it can be linked to false narratives about Trump, yet you dont get worked up about what Iran or the Palestinians are saying, let alone about Politico or liberal politicians with backgrounds as apologists for anti-Semites such as the Democratic National Committees deputy leader, Minnesotas Rep. Keith Ellison then maybe its time to question your motives.

Sean Spicer should teach us that the anyone I dont like is Hitler approach to politics or history always fails. Unfortunately, many of his liberal critics need to learn the same lesson.

Linz puts Hitler’s gift back on display in ‘active effort at remembrance … – The Local Austria

Austrian Nazi leader Arthur Seyss-Inquart is seated to the right of Hitler in this picture from a 1938 rally in Vienna. Photo: AFP

The Austrian city of Linz, where Adolf Hitler spent several years as a teenager, will once again display an Aphrodite sculpture offered by the Fhrer after keeping it in storage for years.

The bronze work by the Nazi sculptor Wilhelm Wandschneider was brought toLinz in 1942 as a “personal gift” from Hitler, who wanted to make the city the”cultural capital” of the Third Reich.

For 65 years it stood in the rotunda of a park overlooking the city, wherethe German dictator lived between 10 and 18 years old.

But it was quickly removed in 2008 after a group of art students revealedits unsavoury origins.

Linz’s Nordico museum, which had stored the work, will now add it to itscollections, Doris Lang-Mayerhofer, who heads the city’s culture and tourismcommittee, said Tuesday.

A detailed explanation will accompany the Aphrodite, she said, adding thatthe city wanted to make an “active effort at remembrance” rather than”dismantle history”.

Lang-Mayerhofer, a conservative VP lawmaker, said the decision garneredunanimous support of parties represented on the city council, as well as thebacking of the federal chancellery.

The Greens backed the museum option since it would keep the statue frombecoming a beacon for neo-Nazi pilgrimages, while the far-right FP said itwould protect the work from “political vandalism”.

Despite Linz’s relative insignificance for Nazi Germany, Hitler named itone of his “Fhrer cities” alongside Berlin, Hamburg, Munich and Nuremburg.

Linz had organised in 2008 an exposition delving into this cumbersomeheritage.

The Failed Hitler Sitcom ‘Heil Honey, I’m Home!’ – Forward

What happens when you write a zany sitcom about Adolf Hitler, his wife and their Jewish next door neighbors? Well, not a whole lot.

Heil Honey, Im Home, a British comedy show produced in 1990, only made it one episode in before it was promptly pulled off the air.

The shows creator Geoff Atkinson spoke to Entertainment Weekly last week about his ill-fated sitcom, and explained that the aim was to laugh at bullies.

It seems like the right thing to do; as we speak, somebodys probably writing a Trump sitcom, Atkinson said. I would love to write a Trump sitcom.

Atkinson went onto say that poking fun of Hitler was actually an important move.

If you have a monster like that, and everyone says, You cant make fun of him, then weve made him even more a monster, he said. Thats what fascists want, to keep people in fear of them, when surely we should be debunking and destroying them.

The writer does have his regrets though like maybe he should have nixed the shows drunken conga line.

I think if we got it right, it would have been fantastic, and Id rather that than yet another sitcom about a 30-something couple that hasnt really got that much to say, he said.

RABBI SHMULEY: Would Holocaust Have Happened if America Struck Hitler? – Breitbart News

SIGN UP FOR OUR NEWSLETTER

On my third visit I have, in my my mind, two eras that, sadly, cannot be conjoined.

What would have happened if Hitler, right after Kristallnacht in November, 1938, had been hit by hundreds of American cruise missiles? What if some superpower had punished him for his pogrom against Jews with a superior weapon and made him feel that his crime would not go unchallenged?

Would he have proceeded with the Holocaust? Or were the monstrous crimes that followed the result of a belief that no one cared about the Jews?

The last time I was here, I visited with a delegation from the Israeli Knesset and much of the top brass of the Israeli military. Even as I walked among the very leaders of the modern miracle of the State of Israel, themselves the symbols of Jewish hope that endured the Nazi horrors that besieged us, I felt deep despair.

This time, I am here with the March of the Living. Along with an army of Jewish youth, twelve thousand strong all bursting with hope, strength, and pride. The mass-cascade of hopeful Jewish students, led by a delegation of survivors, is awash with the blue-and-white of the Israeli flag, which hundreds have draped across their shoulders or affixed to banners that rise triumphantly above the crowds.

The idea of the march is captured in this image. No longer will Jews be driven to their deaths at the barrel of a gun. Today, Jews step forward along the hallowed earth in a powerful parade, marked by our pride and resilience, our strength and our grit. It is, ultimately, a testament to our rebirth as a people. What was once a death march has become a march of the living.

And still, as I enter the sprawling complex of death, I felt loss, numbness, and confusion.

Today I pass under the notorious banner: Arbeit Macht Frei. Immediately, I am gripped by the thought that as the train-loads of Jews arrived here, they might have truly believed that work would set them free. For a million of those Jews, it would be a false and fruitless hope. They would never leave, but would meet their ends in chambers of poison gas. Not even their bodies would remain. They would be incinerated into ash in the crematoria.

How can one stand in this temple of horror and destruction, this barefaced symbol of G-ds abandonment of his people, this monument to the infinity of mans capacity for evil, and feel anything within the sphere of hope? No, here there is nothing but darkness. It is a world of shadows, impenetrable to all light. Endlessly deep and profoundly unforgiving, Auschwitz is an abyss from which no soul can possibly escape.

I have given up on finding meaning here. But I have come across something else. There is an unrelenting message that is cast upon me in all directions by the camps decaying brick walls, sullen barracks, and looming guard-towers. It is a call that springs upon me from the earth, from the hundreds of thousands of voices that were silenced here seven-decades ago the victims whom I can, somehow, still hear.

In a chorus of urgency and desperation, the victims impart to me the most hallowed command: stop the horror. Never allow our fate to be thrust upon yet more innocent victims. Treasure our memory, and protect those for whom help can still arrive, for whom hope is not yet fruitless.

In Auschwitz, I find Ive been given a mission.

This is a mission, I know, that has never been as crucial as it is today.

Even after witnessing the decimation of European Jewry in places like this, the world allowed mass slaughter and genocide to rage largely untouched in Cambodia, Iraq, Pakistan, Guatemala, Bosnia, Rwanda, and Darfur among many others.

Today, the killing goes on in Iraq at the hands of ISIS, who launched a genocide of the Yazidis and Christians; and in Syria, where government forces, along with the Iranian-funded Hezbollah army of terror, are targeting Sunnis and Arab children for mass extermination.

For years now, the mullah-led murderous government in Iran has continued time and again to threaten yet another Holocaust against the Jewish people. Just four months ago, Irans defense minister promised that should President Donald Trump pull out of Obamas nuclear deal, the result would be the immediate destruction of the Zionist Regime. Half a year before that, an Advisor to Irans Revolutionary Guards bragged that he would raze all of Israel to the ground in less than eight minutes.

In return for that talk, the world awarded Iran a nuclear deal that all but allowed the continuation of the nuclear program designed to make its genocidal dreams possible. They also flooded the mullahs coffers with one-hundred and fifty billion dollars and legitimized trade with their putrid, autocratic, and gay-hanging regime.

What is, however, most horrific is thatjust this month, Syrias illegitimate murderer-in chief Bashar al-Assad took a note from the Nazis and employed poison gas to choke up to one hundred civilians to death in Idlib. To his credit, President Trump avenged their deaths with dozens of airstrikes against Syrian airfields. But from the very fact that such attacks still occur, it is undeniable that our world has yet to learn from the Holocaust, and harkened to the call of its victims a call that still rings in my ears.

We at the World Values Network have therefore taken it upon ourselves to create a robust and fully-functional anti-genocide center that will work round-the-clock to shed light on peoples at risk across the world, bringing their plight to the forefront of global consciousness. Never again will people and governments be able to claim, as they always have, that they simply did not know.

I am here at the March of the Living with my friend Elisha Wiesel, who is speaking at the march about the memory of his illustrious father. At my home for the Sabbath recently, Elisha shared a beautiful Torah thought. Why did God make the Nile river run red with blood as the first plague in Egypt? So that the Egyptians would never be able to deny that they had perpetrated a genocide of Jewish children in the river. The very waters cried out with blood.

We may have come late for those who rest here in Auschwitz, Rwanda, and the countless mass graves that lie all across our world. Still, their voices rise up from the earth begging to finally be heard. Even as it wont save them, it can still save others.

And, my friends, so can we.

Lets join together and build an organization that will finally endow meaning to life in a world that is so often blind to it.

Let us finally hear the screams in the silence of Auschwitz. For within them there is not just a cry of death, but a mission of life.

Its a mission that simply cannot wait.

The incredibly realistic images show men dressed as Nazi soldiers trying to hold off Russian troops as Germany is invaded.

The use of flamethrowers in the deadliest war ever has been well documented and the history fans did not hold back from using them.

Some 1,400 military enthusiasts and 100 stuntmen took part in recreating the Red Armys capture of Berlin, watched by 7,000 spectators.

Several of the snaps shows men engulfed in flame as the horrors of the battle are glimpsed.

At the start of 1945, Adolf Hitlers German army was crumbling after fighting a war on two fronts.

Smelling blood, Soviet dictator Josef Stalin tasked his two marshals Georgy Zhukov and Ivan Konev with invading Nazi capital Berlin.

And in a bid to motivate the Russian troops, Stalin pitted both Zhukov and Konevs battalions against each other to see which group could crush the Germans first.

After Zhukovs group entered Berlin from the north and Konevs from the south, by April 23 the two armies had encircled and taken the city.

On April 30, Hitler committed suicide in his bunker in the capital as the advancing Red Army lay siege to Berlin.

"Why I Hate My Uncle," by William Hitler (Look magazine, 1939) – Boing Boing

A copy of Look Magazine from July 4, 1939 will cost you $950, because it has a a six-page photo-illustrated feature by William P. Hitler, called “Why I Hate My Uncle.” William Patrick Hitler was born in Liverpool in the UK in 1911. His father was Adolf Hitlers brother Alois Hitler. William moved to Germany in 1933 in an attempt to benefit from his uncles position of power. It appears William, who was familiar with Adolfs family background, was an embarrassing thorn in Adolfs side during the 1930s. Moving to the United States in 1939, William served in the US Navy in World War II. After the war, William Hitler changed his last name to Stuart-Houston. Looks article is written by William and reveals what it was like to be Adolf Hitlers nephew. Here are some excerpts: The July 4, 1939 issue of Look Magazine is scarce with just the single copy listed for sale on AbeBooks. It is offered by Rare Non Fiction, a seller located in British Columbia, Canada. Look was a rival to Life Magazine, and was published between 1937 and 1971. Prominently featuring eye-catching photography and well known people, Look employed Stanley Kubrick as a staff photographer from 1946 to 1951.

Austrian City Puts Nude Statue Donated by Hitler Back on Display – Heat Street

An Austrian city has returned a controversial statue donated by Adolf Hitler to public display. Linz, one of Hitlers favorite towns in the Third Reich, received the bronze sculpture as a gift from the Fhrer in 1942, at the height of the Second World War. The artwork, a personal gift from the Nazi leader, was meant to help establish the settlement as one of the cultural capitals of his dominion. It was set up in one of the citys parks, where it stood for decades as its origin faded from memory. (It is pictured above at the site in 2001) But in 2008 it was removed after a group of local art students dug up its history and complained. The bronze has been in storage for almost a decade but will now be made available for public viewings again. An announcement from a local museum, the Nordico, said that letting people see the statue was an act of remembrance. It argued that displaying it with large amounts of historical context was better than attempting to dismantle history by hiding it away. Local politicians were more or less unanimous in supporting the decision, according to the AFP news agency. Some pointed out that keeping it at an indoor museum will make sure it does not become a site of pilgrimage for Neo-Nazis. Linz has a personal connection to Hitler, who lived there for eight years while he was growing up. Like many areas linked to the Nazi leader, it has agonized over the right way to acknowledge the connection in the modern era. Many sites associated with his life have been demolished, partly to prevent Hitler devotees flocking to them. His birthplace in Vienna has been subject to a particularly fierce dispute, especially as the owner and the government disagreed over what to do with it. For decades, the Austrian government rented the property from landlord Gerlinde Pommer to make sure nobody else could misuse the site. But late last year, authorities decided to pass legislation to reclaim the building, which is due to be knocked down and replaced with either a charity building or government offices.

German paramedic sacked for drawing a HITLER moustache on … – The Sun

Sick prank carried out on drug casualty being transported in ambulance A PARAMEDIC in Germany has been fired after drawing a Hitler moustache onto the face of an immigrant being ferried to hospital for a suspected drink and drugs overdose. The incident happened at Christmas but only came to light this week when medical assistant Thomas Wagner posted a video and photos in a WhatsApp chat room set up by him for the Johanitter care group in Frankfurt. He wrote on a photo of the victim : Victim#1 today: trendy beards. And a friend responded with a tasteless quip about the Nazi Holocaust writing: The Yolocaust. Another wrote: Oh, how peaceful it slumbers! Yolocaust yolo stands for you alone referred to selfies taken at sensitive Holocaust remembrance sites in Germany. On the video the patient is seen slumped over the gurney inside the ambulance. Wagner is not seen but can be heard saying: Are you coming into the hospital with us to get sober? The victim responds weakly: Yes. Then there is more laughter from the ambulance crew when one says: Youre supposed to lie on the stretcher, not over it. Days later Wagner seemed to realize the error of his ways and posted in the chat room: A few lines on the video I postedit shows how not to do it. I pledge to do better. And a day later he pleaded with fellow users to erase everything he had posted, adding: I have to accept the consequences of my actions and will today hand in my notice. digitalpictures-sm@thesun.co.uk But his bosses beat him to it after viewing the chat room contents and sacked him. Oliver Pitsch, Johanniter boss for the area, said: We saw the photos and video and his employment was terminated immediately and instantly. But Wagners woes are not over: his bosses are mulling over filing a criminal complaint about his actions with local prosecutors for failing to properly care for a patient he was responsible for.

Sean Spicer and the ‘anyone I don’t like is Hitler’ rule – New Jersey Jewish News

by Jonathan S. Tobin Special to NJJN April 27, 2017 The biggest Jewish news story during Passover was the latest example of a rule of political argument: He who mentions Hitler first always loses. I refer, of course, to Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary. Spicer hit a new low when he seemed to say that Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad was worse than Adolf Hitler. In damning Assad for his use of chemical weapons, Spicer asserted that even Hitler didnt sink to using chemical weapons. Perhaps Spicer was thinking about the fact that the Germans didnt employ chemical weapons when fighting Allied armies as they had in World War I, when both sides used poison gas as a military weapon. But you dont need to be a historian to know that poison gas played a prominent role in the Nazis war on the Jews. After a couple of inadequate attempts to rationalize his statement, Spicer apologized unreservedly. While Spicer was a fool to compare anyone, even someone as bad as Assad, to Hitler, the anti-Trump resistance appears to have no such compunctions about the objects of their disdain. Its not enough to disagree with Trump and his minions or even to point out the alleged dangers of their policies. The political left has embraced White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannons credo that politics is warfare, in which anything may be said if it helps delegitimize a foe. The Trump administration opened itself up to criticism when the president was slow to unreservedly condemn a spate of bomb threats at JCCs. But Jewish liberals werent content with blasting these blunders. Instead they claimed Trump was responsible for inspiring the threats and a new wave of anti-Semitism. But unlike the foolish Spicer, the groups that made those charges didnt apologize when suspects in the JCC threats turned out to be a disturbed Israeli teen and a left-wing American writer. The Spicer gaffe also overshadowed a deliberate attempt to demonize Jews in the service of the war on Trump just a few days earlier. The Politico website, one of the most well-read and respected sources of political news, published a lengthy piece on the eve of Passover linking the Chasidic movement Chabad to a nefarious network of real estate moguls that tied the Trump family to Russian President Vladimir Putin. The piece, The Happy-Go-Lucky Jewish Group That Connects Trump and Putin, seemed to allege that the activities of Chabad, whose hallmark is Jewish outreach, provide some sort of proof for the charges that Trump is in cahoots with Moscow (an argument that has less cogency now that Trump has taken on Russia over Syria). But it proved nothing of the sort about Chabad or Trump. Filled with errors and innuendo, the article was as much an example of fake news as anything cooked up by the far left or far right. The Anti-Defamation League correctly condemned it as a calumny that invoked age-old myths about the Jews. Liberals guilty of anti-Semitism dont excuse offensive conservatives. But the moral of the story is that if you complain about Jew-hatred when it can be linked to false narratives about Trump, yet you dont get worked up about what Iran or the Palestinians are saying, let alone about Politico or liberal politicians with backgrounds as apologists for anti-Semites such as the Democratic National Committees deputy leader, Minnesotas Rep. Keith Ellison then maybe its time to question your motives. Sean Spicer should teach us that the anyone I dont like is Hitler approach to politics or history always fails. Unfortunately, many of his liberal critics need to learn the same lesson. Jonathan S. Tobin is opinion editor of JNS.org and a contributing writer for National Review.

Linz puts Hitler’s gift back on display in ‘active effort at remembrance … – The Local Austria

Austrian Nazi leader Arthur Seyss-Inquart is seated to the right of Hitler in this picture from a 1938 rally in Vienna. Photo: AFP The Austrian city of Linz, where Adolf Hitler spent several years as a teenager, will once again display an Aphrodite sculpture offered by the Fhrer after keeping it in storage for years. The bronze work by the Nazi sculptor Wilhelm Wandschneider was brought toLinz in 1942 as a “personal gift” from Hitler, who wanted to make the city the”cultural capital” of the Third Reich. For 65 years it stood in the rotunda of a park overlooking the city, wherethe German dictator lived between 10 and 18 years old. But it was quickly removed in 2008 after a group of art students revealedits unsavoury origins. Linz’s Nordico museum, which had stored the work, will now add it to itscollections, Doris Lang-Mayerhofer, who heads the city’s culture and tourismcommittee, said Tuesday. A detailed explanation will accompany the Aphrodite, she said, adding thatthe city wanted to make an “active effort at remembrance” rather than”dismantle history”. READ ALSO: ‘Crap’ Hitler painting goes on show in Italian Museum of Madness Lang-Mayerhofer, a conservative VP lawmaker, said the decision garneredunanimous support of parties represented on the city council, as well as thebacking of the federal chancellery. The Greens backed the museum option since it would keep the statue frombecoming a beacon for neo-Nazi pilgrimages, while the far-right FP said itwould protect the work from “political vandalism”. Despite Linz’s relative insignificance for Nazi Germany, Hitler named itone of his “Fhrer cities” alongside Berlin, Hamburg, Munich and Nuremburg. Linz had organised in 2008 an exposition delving into this cumbersomeheritage. The Aphrodite sculpture pictured in Linz before its removal in 2008. By Ruchhft-Plau – Own work, CC BY-SA.3.0

The Failed Hitler Sitcom ‘Heil Honey, I’m Home!’ – Forward

What happens when you write a zany sitcom about Adolf Hitler, his wife and their Jewish next door neighbors? Well, not a whole lot. Heil Honey, Im Home, a British comedy show produced in 1990, only made it one episode in before it was promptly pulled off the air. The shows creator Geoff Atkinson spoke to Entertainment Weekly last week about his ill-fated sitcom, and explained that the aim was to laugh at bullies. It seems like the right thing to do; as we speak, somebodys probably writing a Trump sitcom, Atkinson said. I would love to write a Trump sitcom. Atkinson went onto say that poking fun of Hitler was actually an important move. If you have a monster like that, and everyone says, You cant make fun of him, then weve made him even more a monster, he said. Thats what fascists want, to keep people in fear of them, when surely we should be debunking and destroying them. The writer does have his regrets though like maybe he should have nixed the shows drunken conga line. I think if we got it right, it would have been fantastic, and Id rather that than yet another sitcom about a 30-something couple that hasnt really got that much to say, he said.

RABBI SHMULEY: Would Holocaust Have Happened if America Struck Hitler? – Breitbart News

SIGN UP FOR OUR NEWSLETTER On my third visit I have, in my my mind, two eras that, sadly, cannot be conjoined. What would have happened if Hitler, right after Kristallnacht in November, 1938, had been hit by hundreds of American cruise missiles? What if some superpower had punished him for his pogrom against Jews with a superior weapon and made him feel that his crime would not go unchallenged? Would he have proceeded with the Holocaust? Or were the monstrous crimes that followed the result of a belief that no one cared about the Jews? The last time I was here, I visited with a delegation from the Israeli Knesset and much of the top brass of the Israeli military. Even as I walked among the very leaders of the modern miracle of the State of Israel, themselves the symbols of Jewish hope that endured the Nazi horrors that besieged us, I felt deep despair. This time, I am here with the March of the Living. Along with an army of Jewish youth, twelve thousand strong all bursting with hope, strength, and pride. The mass-cascade of hopeful Jewish students, led by a delegation of survivors, is awash with the blue-and-white of the Israeli flag, which hundreds have draped across their shoulders or affixed to banners that rise triumphantly above the crowds. The idea of the march is captured in this image. No longer will Jews be driven to their deaths at the barrel of a gun. Today, Jews step forward along the hallowed earth in a powerful parade, marked by our pride and resilience, our strength and our grit. It is, ultimately, a testament to our rebirth as a people. What was once a death march has become a march of the living. And still, as I enter the sprawling complex of death, I felt loss, numbness, and confusion. Today I pass under the notorious banner: Arbeit Macht Frei. Immediately, I am gripped by the thought that as the train-loads of Jews arrived here, they might have truly believed that work would set them free. For a million of those Jews, it would be a false and fruitless hope. They would never leave, but would meet their ends in chambers of poison gas. Not even their bodies would remain. They would be incinerated into ash in the crematoria. How can one stand in this temple of horror and destruction, this barefaced symbol of G-ds abandonment of his people, this monument to the infinity of mans capacity for evil, and feel anything within the sphere of hope? No, here there is nothing but darkness. It is a world of shadows, impenetrable to all light. Endlessly deep and profoundly unforgiving, Auschwitz is an abyss from which no soul can possibly escape. I have given up on finding meaning here. But I have come across something else. There is an unrelenting message that is cast upon me in all directions by the camps decaying brick walls, sullen barracks, and looming guard-towers. It is a call that springs upon me from the earth, from the hundreds of thousands of voices that were silenced here seven-decades ago the victims whom I can, somehow, still hear. In a chorus of urgency and desperation, the victims impart to me the most hallowed command: stop the horror. Never allow our fate to be thrust upon yet more innocent victims. Treasure our memory, and protect those for whom help can still arrive, for whom hope is not yet fruitless. In Auschwitz, I find Ive been given a mission. This is a mission, I know, that has never been as crucial as it is today. Even after witnessing the decimation of European Jewry in places like this, the world allowed mass slaughter and genocide to rage largely untouched in Cambodia, Iraq, Pakistan, Guatemala, Bosnia, Rwanda, and Darfur among many others. Today, the killing goes on in Iraq at the hands of ISIS, who launched a genocide of the Yazidis and Christians; and in Syria, where government forces, along with the Iranian-funded Hezbollah army of terror, are targeting Sunnis and Arab children for mass extermination. For years now, the mullah-led murderous government in Iran has continued time and again to threaten yet another Holocaust against the Jewish people. Just four months ago, Irans defense minister promised that should President Donald Trump pull out of Obamas nuclear deal, the result would be the immediate destruction of the Zionist Regime. Half a year before that, an Advisor to Irans Revolutionary Guards bragged that he would raze all of Israel to the ground in less than eight minutes. In return for that talk, the world awarded Iran a nuclear deal that all but allowed the continuation of the nuclear program designed to make its genocidal dreams possible. They also flooded the mullahs coffers with one-hundred and fifty billion dollars and legitimized trade with their putrid, autocratic, and gay-hanging regime. What is, however, most horrific is thatjust this month, Syrias illegitimate murderer-in chief Bashar al-Assad took a note from the Nazis and employed poison gas to choke up to one hundred civilians to death in Idlib. To his credit, President Trump avenged their deaths with dozens of airstrikes against Syrian airfields. But from the very fact that such attacks still occur, it is undeniable that our world has yet to learn from the Holocaust, and harkened to the call of its victims a call that still rings in my ears. We at the World Values Network have therefore taken it upon ourselves to create a robust and fully-functional anti-genocide center that will work round-the-clock to shed light on peoples at risk across the world, bringing their plight to the forefront of global consciousness. Never again will people and governments be able to claim, as they always have, that they simply did not know. I am here at the March of the Living with my friend Elisha Wiesel, who is speaking at the march about the memory of his illustrious father. At my home for the Sabbath recently, Elisha shared a beautiful Torah thought. Why did God make the Nile river run red with blood as the first plague in Egypt? So that the Egyptians would never be able to deny that they had perpetrated a genocide of Jewish children in the river. The very waters cried out with blood. We may have come late for those who rest here in Auschwitz, Rwanda, and the countless mass graves that lie all across our world. Still, their voices rise up from the earth begging to finally be heard. Even as it wont save them, it can still save others. And, my friends, so can we. Lets join together and build an organization that will finally endow meaning to life in a world that is so often blind to it. Let us finally hear the screams in the silence of Auschwitz. For within them there is not just a cry of death, but a mission of life. Its a mission that simply cannot wait.
