Recounting the nightmares of the Holocaust

By Lauren Russell, CNN

Photographer Maciek Nabrdalik was visiting a Holocaust memorial and museum in Poland when he noticed an obituary posted for one of the survivors. The next day there was another one.

“At that moment I realized that we are the last generation who can approach them to talk and ask questions,” he said.

Since then, he has sat down with more than 40 former camp prisoners to help tell their stories for his ongoing project, “The Irreversible.”

    If the first person atheist Joe Stalin murdered had been himself 60 million people and their descendants would have lived and be alive today. What is worse the mass murder of millions by one atheist or the suicide of one atheist, something that will not live anyway.

Few hindered years later, ruling time of Ptolemy the 3rd hindu's pagans of Egypt hindu's pagans entered Philistine with hindu, corrupted Torah and some how managed to marry in to influential family of beni Israel, and started to inter fear in to affairs of Beni Israel. With help of hindu pagan Egypt they started to impose hindu corrupted Torah on Beni Israel by force, By the time of Sayadana Easa.

      There should be a distinction between genocide and poor policy. Genocide has to be purposeful. In Uganda, there was a clear intent by one tribe to try and eliminate another tribe. Think of Stalin, a perpetrator of both genocide and poor policy. The mass execution and enslavement of the Kulaks was genocide. His poor agricultural policy was just a trsgedy which resulted in millions of deaths.

      Not really. There are numerous political, social and cultural issues which contribute to The Troubles, with religion being just one. Catholic and Protestant have just become useless labels to describe Nationalists and Unionists (which themselves are just marginally more useful labels).

    • fred

      Some truth in what truth be told did not tell you. The Word of God is very simple so there can be no confusion. There was Able and there was Cain. From the first descendents to the last they will have the disposition towards God as Able had while the other will have the disposition of Cain. Atheists mock and reject the hope of Able which even if there is no God brings darkness into the world. If there is a God then they are at serious risk eternally for themselves and others. Others if they are weak in their faith may fall for some of the Dawkins tricks that are well planned out.
      God allows atheists and specifically says not to wish harm on them. In this regard tbt atheists have put you at risk also because you allowed evil to get under your skin. I suggest you follow Christ’s lead and the teachings that were from the beginning. Please take your thoughts that may harm others to Christ in prayer and ask that the truth remove anything that does not bring glory to God.

      The true atheist has forsaken the qualities that make it a human being. They are all lost to this world and the next and their immediate loss by self inflicted wound would not alter their ultimate destination in the least. The greater good would be to the innocents that would be spared, sadly the self deceived atheist is without the courage required to ever help mankind.

      Think the mark of Cain not the person. Think also the judgement of evil in the cleansing of the Hebrew homeland. There is no place in this world or the next for the self deceived atheist. Beyond their unspeakable lies, tortures and murders they impede the Glory of God. if it were not for the presence of the Christian they would all be swept away like the sinners they are.

      Akira. I'm very fortunate to have met some survivors. Some of the most honest, caring and giving people I have ever met. One couple, where I used to by my jeans and shirts from regulary, always greeted me by name, and we would chat. One day, after I enlisted, I went back, some two years later, in uniform. The woman rushed up to me and cradled my face in her hands an cried, for joy and for what I represented to her, an American army that liberated their camp. They are long gone now, and I miss them, but their memory, and the love they showed me, lives in my heart. It's sad what people can do to one another in the name of idealogy/religion.

      Akira. Yes I'm aware of that fact. My grandfather was from Poland, came over before WWI. He lost family to the camps as well. He would tell me about them. Hard for a youngster to know and understand. Seeing the numbers tattoed on my friends arms brought it home quite forcefully. I cried inside, it really hurt to know that some were willing to hurt them. It also made me very angry, and I'm not tolerant of those who would push/force their agenda on people.

      So if Hitler wasn't a true Scotsman, what about the rest of the German people at the time?
      Nazi uniforms were emblazoned with the slogan "Gott mit uns" – "God is with us".
      Was there not a single "true Christian" in the German army between 1930 and 1945?

      January 28, 2013 at 1:24 pm |
    • VanHagar

      Doc...I'm going to throw this out for comment...whether one is LIVING as a "true Christian" (and I'm not particularly certain how to even define that) isn't established simply by their words, and most certainly it isn't established by some motto on a uniform, but rather how they live their lives–proof is in the pudding I suppose. Was there a true Christian in the German army–sure. Were there true Christians buying into the Nazi propaganda and the final solution–you'd be hard pressed to convince me.

      January 28, 2013 at 2:09 pm |
    • End Religion

      VanHagar, Christians Nazis make perfect sense. Your bible already says blacks are cursed and that you should kill gay people. Your rule book is filled with capricious murder and genocide. Your buddy William Lane Craig even advocates genocide as righteous. Most religions are tailor-made for generating the hatred which leads to genocide. Just accept that you're a part of the problem.

      January 28, 2013 at 3:03 pm |
    • VanHagar

      @End religion...the Bible does not say blacks are cursed–why give Truth Be Told more false ammunition to claim that you're a liar? There are, indeed, a number of very harsh penalties for sin–you'll have to debate a Jew to discuss–as a Christian, I'm not under those laws and do not follow them except to the extent the NT demands it. As for William Lane Craig–I honestly don't know who he is–but I will reiterate that while one's words may prove whether one is a Christian, one's actions most certainly will. There is nothing Christian about advocating genocide.

      January 28, 2013 at 4:17 pm |
    • Akira

      Vanhagar, there was a person claiming Hitler was an theist.
      Clearly they were lying; they were presented with evidence that Hitler was, indeed, a Christian.
      Naturally, according to you, not a true Chistian, but nonetheless, he WAS a Christian.
      It is always lovely to see people backpedal through the truth in an effort to substantiate the original lie: that Hitler was atheist.
      He. Wasn't.

      Whether you claim they are "true" or not, LDS is categorized as Christian. They claim the curse of Ham is a biblical curse against blacks. There's no need to finger point at whose cult is crazier, whatever yours is, VanHagar, it is just as looney as any other and likely bears the weight of just as many atrocities claimed as righteous.

    "truth be told" – the one of the greatest proponents of atheism on the Belief Blog!

      I purposefully didn't put it in the thread. I only put nonsense in truth be told threads.

    The holocaust, just one example of what atheism has done for mankind. Atheists have tortured and killed more people in the last 100 years than were killed in all previous centuries.

      All atheists are liars and it appears stupid as well.

      Please explain why YOU think the Holocaust was done by Atheists. Be specific.

      hitler was an atheist.
      All atheists are liars, they cannot help themselves, given opportunity they are also mass murderers. History shows that ALL countries ruled by atheist dictators were the sites of mass murder.

      Hitler was by no means an Atheist. He wasn't even close. Read some history. Have a grown-up help you with the bigger words. Thank you for showing everyone how much sense you really lack, and for proving that your screen name is a direct oxymoron to your posts.

      I'm sorry, "truth be told", but your repeated assertions regarding atheism are unfounded. Hitler was a devout Christian. Furthermore, "truth be told", there is no data indicating that populations under ruthless dictators of past regimes have committed atrocities in the name of atheism. However, there is data indicating that segments of populations under different religions have committed atrocities in the name of their respective religions. Using my Idiomatic Expression Equivalency module (IEE), the expression that best matches the degree to which your repeated unfounded assertions may represent truths is: "EPIC FAIL". Perhaps the following book can help you cope with the problem of repeating unfounded assertions:

      "hitler was an atheist."

      "My feelings as a Christian points me to my Lord and Savior as a fighter. It points me to the man who once in loneliness, surrounded only by a few followers, recognized these Jews for what they were and summoned men to fight against them and who, God's truth! was greatest not as a sufferer but as a fighter. In boundless love as a Christian and as a man I read through the passage which tells us how the Lord at last rose in His might and seized the scourge to drive out of the Temple the brood of vipers and adders. How terrific was His fight for the world against the Jewish poison. To-day, after two thousand years, with deepest emotion I recognize more profoundly than ever before in the fact that it was for this that He had to shed His blood upon the Cross. As a Christian I have no duty to allow myself to be cheated, but I have the duty to be a fighter for truth and justice.... And if there is anything which could demonstrate that we are acting rightly it is the distress that daily grows. For as a Christian I have also a duty to my own people.... When I go out in the morning and see these men standing in their queues and look into their pinched faces, then I believe I would be no Christian, but a very devil if I felt no pity for them, if I did not, as did our Lord two thousand years ago, turn against those by whom to-day this poor people is plundered and exploited."

      -Adolf Hitler, in his speech in Munich on 12 April 1922

      Truth...I'm beginning to wonder if you aren't really an atheist or agnostic attempting to make believers look bad. If that is the case, then that's your cross the bear. If you are a Christian, I hope I speak for the rest of the true believers who regularly come here when I say: "Stop it–You're not speaking in truth, in faith, in love or in any other way Christ commands."

      @ Robert, you couldn't fight your way out of a wet paper bag, coward. Want to fight, azzhat? Enlist, go to war. See how you like fighting.
