One of my Polish-American kin, Alex Storozynski, wrote this article on his Huffington Post blog. I used to respect Storozynski as he is passionate promoter of Polish culture in the New York City area. He usually tries to get Polish-Americans to reconnect with their native land and culture without too much in your face nationalist pandering. However, with this little number, he has proven himself to be a dense goy, doomed to delusion.
The media’s slander of Poland: Ignorance, lazy editing, or malicious libel?
By Alex Storozynski
The New York-born Chief Rabbi of Poland, Michael Schudrich, says, “Accusing Poles of participation in the Holocaust is a sin.” Yet on a regular basis, American journalists do just that by calling Auschwitz a “Polish concentration camp.” This is Holocaust revisionism.
SoE: The correct term here would be “incorrect” or “inaccurate Holocaust revisionism.” The reasons for this are, of course, way above Storozynski’s head which is packed with gas chamber myths and other assorted nightmares. Also it is worth noting that Storozynski automatically assumes revisionism is a bad thing despite many good having come from revised ideas and viewpoints.
The Nazi concentration camps were built by Germans, run by Germans, and guarded by Germans. The victims of those camps were Polish. Newspaper editors justify use of the term “Polish concentration camp” as geographical shorthand for “a German concentration camp in occupied Poland.” But this shorthand is Orwellian doublespeak that turns victim into perpetrator and distorts history. It perpetuates ignorance about the Holocaust and gives impressionable readers the idea that Poles built the camps. The Auschwitz killing factory was a product of German engineering, and both Polish Jews and Catholics were murdered there.
SoE: Actually they were built by prisoners of the Germans, which included Poles and Jews. Victims (of the typhus epidemic) were everyone, though the Polish Jews with their fear of showering and general lack of cleanliness succumbed to disease more than others in the supposed “killing factory” that they helped build.
Ironically, Storozynski is the victim and perpetuator of Orwellian doublespeak as he holds myth as reality and fails to see it.
On Sept. 1, 1939, the German blitzkrieg stormed into Poland to burn down cities, enslave the populace, build gas chambers to murder Jews and execute Christian Poles that helped them. Two weeks later, Soviet Russia sent tanks into eastern Poland to execute the leadership and destroy its capitalist system. Poland fought Nazi Germany longer than any other country and the Germans used Auschwitz to kill Polish soldiers and political prisoners, before constructing gas chambers to murder Jews.
SoE: So now the Germans invaded Poland just so they could build gas chambers? Despite the fact that they had their own, ones they NEVER used for murder. Read up on the German company Degesch that manufactured large gas chambers for fumigating rail cars and then see that those small stone rooms in Auschwitz, Majdanek and other camps look nothing like them.
At least, Storozynski is right in saying that the USSR invaded Poland, it’s true, but he fails to see why the great Western Allies didn’t declare war on the Soviet invader like they did on the German.
And actually, the USSR fought Germany longer than Poland, as did the Western Allies, but maybe Storozynski just used shorthand for “Poland fought Nazi Germany longer than any other country at the start of war” despite the fact that he admitted to not approving of shorthand due to the inaccuracies it causes.
Adolf Hitler wrote in Mein Kampf, “in the big lie there is a certain force of credibility, because the broad masses of a nation are easily corrupted … and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie.”
SoE: Yes, Hitler did write that, but maybe you’d care for context and accuracy? That part of the quote DOES NOT end with a period, there is a comma and the quote continues:
“…since they themselves lie in little things, but would be ashamed of lies that were too big. Such a falsehood will never enter their heads and they will not be able to believe in the possibility of such monstrous effrontery and infamous misrepresentation in others; yes, even when enlightened on the subject, they will long doubt and waver, and continue to accept at least one of these causes as true. Therefore, something of even the most insolent lie will always remain and stick-a fact which all the great lie-virtuosi and lying-clubs in this world know only too well and also make the most treacherous use of.
The foremost connoisseurs of this truth regarding the possibilities in the use of falsehood and slander have always been the Jews; for after all, their whole existence is based on one single great lie, to wit, that they are a religious community.”
Hitler was talking about the Jews’ method of lying and definitely not endorsing it. He was pointing it out. Dense goys do make the best goys.
Hitler vowed to get rid of “Jews, Polacks and riff-raff.” He would be pleased that today American newspapers blame Poles for his Nazi death camps rather than the Germans. The Nazis themselves gave the camp a German name, “Auschwitz” and then hung a sign over the entrance in German, “Arbeit Macht Frei.” Calling it Polish is either lazy or malicious.
This past week, on Oct. 20, The New York Times ran an obituary of Dr. George Mathe, which said that he had been sent to “a Polish concentration camp in a cattle car.” The shifting blame is getting so bad that in June, The Los Angeles Times even ran a piece in which its “Culture Monster” reviewer F. Kathleen Foley used the phrase “Nazi Poland.” This is libelous. The Los Angeles Times corrected the mistake on its web site. In May, The Wall Street Journal used the phrase “Polish concentration camp.” Polish-Americans protested outside the newspaper’s offices, however The Wall Street Journal refuses to remove the defamatory phrase from its web site. The Polish Consul General in New York, Ewa Junczyk-Ziomecka wrote a letter to the editor saying that the Journal is “indicating that Poland was a participant in the Nazi crime. In reality, my country was Hitler’s most brutalized victim with more than six million Polish citizens losing their lives during the war.”
Of the six million Poles killed during World War II, about half were Jewish while the rest were Christian. German soldiers also transported Jews from 27 other countries into Nazi occupied-Poland to be murdered in deaths camps like Auschwitz. Because Poland resisted Germany, Hitler ordered his army to bomb and burn Warsaw to the ground.
SoE: More “death camp” nonsense. Also, it’s a tough pill to swallow, but Poland could have saved herself by not ignoring Hitler and actually negotiating with him on his demands. Love him or hate him, Hitler was your neighboring leader and instead of making shady deals with Churchill and DeGaulle, my dear and beloved, but sometimes painfully naive Homeland, you should have not ignored your neighbor. One who proved to be very capable and who could have helped you fend off Soviet aggression.
This issue of historic accuracy was taken up by the United Nations, and in 2007, UNESCO officially changed the name of the Auschwitz to “The Auschwitz-Birkenau German Nazi Concentration and Extermination Camp (1940-1945).”
SoE: Well that’s an unpleasant, force-fed, Kosher mouthful.
Jewish leaders have also spoken out on this issue. In Jan. 2005, Executive Director of the American Jewish Committee, David A. Harris, issued a statement which said in part, “We would also like to remind those who are either unaware of the facts or careless in their choice of words, as has been the case with some media outlets, that Auschwitz-Birkenau and the other death camps, including Belzec, Chelmno, Majdanek, Sobibor and Treblinka, were conceived, built and operated by Nazi Germany and its allies. The camps were located in German-occupied Poland, the European country with by far the largest Jewish population, but they were most emphatically not ‘Polish camps’. This is not a mere semantic matter. Historical integrity and accuracy hang in the balance.”
SoE: LOL! A delusional, nightmare-perpetuating Zionist Jew and religion fanatic talking about “historical accuracy.” This may very well have just made my day.
In April 2006, Executive Director of the Anti-Defamation League, Abraham H. Foxman, wrote: “As an agency which prioritizes remembrance of the Holocaust, we share Poland’s concerns over the frequent description of the camp as a ‘Polish’ camp. Such a description implies that the camp was built in the name of the Polish people. As you know, this is manifestly not the truth. Auschwitz stands as a monument to the barbarity of Nazi Germany. We therefore respectfully request that the camp be officially referred to as the ‘Former Nazi German Extermination Camp, Auschwitz-Birkenau.'”
While there were Poles who committed atrocities against Jews during and after World War II, the Polish government convicted and executed those who killed Jews. The Polish underground established the Council to Aid Jews, Zegota, which rescued thousands of Jews. Irena Sendler saved 2,500 Jewish children from the Warsaw ghetto. Jan Karski sneaked through enemy lines to beg Churchill & Roosevelt to stop the Holocaust. They did nothing. Polish Army Captain Witold Pilecki volunteered to be arrested by the Germans and sent to Auschwitz to try to organize a prison break. The Germans executed thousands of Poles who tried to save Jews. The phrase “Polish concentration camp” desecrates their memory.
SoE: Shabbos Goy Storozynski has been effectively conditioned to believe that disgust with Jews is completely unfounded and irrational. He also thinks that ethnic Russians (albeit Soviets) were responsible for the massacre at Katyn, which decapitated the leadership of Poland. It was, in fact, secular Jews that were the majority of Soviet Commissars. Hence “Jewish-Bolshevism” is hardly a canard, rather an observation and succinct wording that more accurate than “death camp.”
The Polish newspaper Rzeczpospolita has published editorials calling for legal action against newspapers that use these defamatory phrases. But it doesn’t have to end this way. Newspaper publishers and the Associated Press can easily rectify this situation by changing their style books to banish the phrase “Polish concentration camps.”
Some editors justify the use of this phrase as a geographic location of the camps. But while editors can find lots of reasons to avoid doing the right thing and banning these phrases from news stories, there are six million reasons why they should.
SoE: The only reason these phrases are “defamatory” is because Storynski’s perception of WW2 is hopelessly (though understandably) misguided. The phrases should be corrected, yes, but not to stop defamation, but to make them accurate. This also involves getting rid of death camp lore. Six million lies is enough.
