Auschwitz as Shoah Business

 

Hollywoodism’s part in creating the myth of “the Holocaust”  by Robert Faurisson

 

The Holocaust” of the Jews then became a sort of religion whose three main components are the extermination, the gas chambers and the six million martyrs.

According to an article of faith of this religion Hitler ordered and planned the methodical slaughter of all European Jews; in so doing he committed a crime without precedent, a specific crime, later called genocide.

Then, in order to commit this specific crime, he had a specific weapon developed, a weapon of mass destruction, the gas chamber, operating especially with a powerful insecticide, Zyklon B, whose active ingredient was hydrogen cyanide.

Finally, the result of this enormous crime was the death of six million European Jews. 

The Auschwitz-Birkenau camp was the focal point, the apogee, the Golgotha of that horror. After the war a whole propaganda developed around this holy trinity of “the Holocaust”, a whole industry of “the Holocaust”, a whole business: the “Shoah Business”.

In the United States the film industry has fed on this belief and spread it throughout the Western world. It is especially since 1978 that such propaganda has been developed, particularly with the four episodes of the U.S. miniseries Holocaust recounting the saga of the Weiss family. It is no exaggeration to say that the showing of that series became, as of 1979, practically mandatory in an entire portion of the world. It triggered a torrent of films including, by Steven Spielberg, Schindler’s List, by Roberto Benigni, Life is Beautiful, by Roman Polanski, The Pianist. In France, in 1985, Claude Lanzmann honoured us with a documendaciary running for over nine hours: Shoah. The number of Emmy Awards, Oscars and other prizes given to films like these is staggering. A mogul of the Entertainment Industry, Andrew Wallenstein, once stated in The Hollywood Reporter: “Let’s just say it: the real reason we see so many of these movies is that they’re awards bait.” It is such observations that have given rise to the saying “There’s No Business Like Shoah Business,” inspired by the refrain of the song, sung by Liza Minnelli amongst others, “There’s No Business Like Show Business.” For more see: http://robertfaurisson.blogspot.it/2012/02/against-hollywoodism-revisionism.html

From 1979 to 2009, that is, for thirty years, the proponents of the authorised version of Second World War history have failed in their attempts to reply to the revisionists on the level of history, science, material research and the careful study of documents and testimonies. To compensate for this failure the “Holocaust” worshipers have sought refuge via the reserves of imagination or belief; hence a remarkable propagation of novels, notoriously false “testimonies”, plays, films, ceremonies, pilgrimages. And so it is that “Shoah Business” and the “Holocaust Religion” have flooded the world with their products and their phantasmagoria.

Shoah Business loves the horror movie   by Carolyn Yeager

In the free-wheeling, anything-goes world of shoah business, movies are described as documentaries and documentaries double as movies. The division between entertainment and historical fact based on honest research becomes blurred, to say the least, and we are offered up a distortion of reality—although an entertaining distortion.

Movies are generally taken to be primarily for entertainment, but horror is a form of entertainment for many people. It’s not surprising then, since Hollywood has been overwhelmingly run by Jews since it’s early days, that a favorite type of horror movie deals with “the Holocaust.” We’ve had Sophie’s Choice and Schindler’s List as top box-office hits, both of which suggest, if they don’t actually, physically depict, horrors of “chilling” proportions going on behind the scenes. In Haaretz, Israel’s largest daily newspaper, Ruth Schuster explained why Hollywood likes to make these films in an April 7, 2013 article, “Beyond Schindler’s List: 10 Holocaust movies worth seeing.”

It is known as the Holocaust. Jews call it the “Shoah” – an ancient word for “disaster” or “catastrophe.” The mass, industrialized murder of European Jewry, the culmination of centuries of hate in an explosion of unimaginable brutality, left nearly six million Jews dead.

Except that none of what she said in that second sentence is true. Not the “mass, industrialized murder,” not the “centuries of hate,” and not “six million dead Jews.”

Not killed in battle or even casualties of war but done to death, often in factories built expressly for murder.

What “factories” would these be? Can crematoriums and shower rooms and rooms to disinfect clothing be called “factories?” The old, discredited stories about conveyor belts carrying corpses from here to there, and electrical floors and walls for instant electrocution of hundreds of living people at a time, might be thought to be factory-like. But they didn’t exist in the crematorium buildings and shower facilities found in the camps. Ruth Schuster continues:

Since the gruesome discoveries of just how Nazi Germany set about eradicating Europe’s Jews, aided and abetted by anti-Semitic or just cowed populations, mankind has struggled to understand what happened. And to answer the ultimate question – could it happen again? The subject is exhaustively covered in media, literature – and cinema, too, where some set out to document, some to investigate and some even, finally, to riff. Directors wonder, dabble in alternate realities and ask: What if? And then what if?

So films are made in which directors “dabble” in possible or pretend scenarios. How it might have been.

What won’t you find on this list? Stephen Spielberg’s 1993 epic “Schindler’s List” – a movie the director himself said he felt compelled to do, rather than wanted to do; a work that has become almost a cliché for cinematic coverage of the Holocaust. Based on the book [novel – it is fiction] “Schindler’s Ark” by Thomas Keneally, it is a movie that shatters, explaining exactly how the stinking cesspool underneath a communal toilet can be a haven for a child. Here is a list in no particular order of 10 other movies our writers feel are worth seeing, some for sharing, and yes, some for the joy of it.

Schindler’s List” is already too familiar to be on the list. Schuster calls it “a cliché of the Holocaust.” True enough. Following this article on this page you’ll find a video featuring Ernst Zundel giving a detailed review of “Swindler’s List” – I recommend you watch it. But from the Haaretz list, there is only one film that could be called a real horror flick. It is

jan27_horror_RothINGLOURIOUS BASTERDS (2009) “Inglourious Basterds” is a quintessential Quentin Tarantino romp and an audacious revenge flick that defies categorization. One of the most chilling fairy tales in recent memory, this visual feast walks the blurred line between fantasy and horror – each uber-stylish scene dripping with more tension than the last. But its real power is in the outrageous rewriting of Holocaust history. Rejecting mere re-enactment and transcending the typical Hollywood history lesson, it makes a daring case for what might have been.

What might have been” in the case of Inglourious Basterds is the culmination of centuries of Jewish hate exploding into unimaginable brutality, leaving hundreds of “Nazis” and SS officers dead, just because they’re “Nazis” and SS officers. It is presented as justice, even though it’s idea of justice is delivered with a baseball bat used as a club

Reaching back to the old for something new

A different kind of violence is shown in a British film made in 1945, allegedly for German consumption only but never shown, that is being released “later this year” according to a Jan. 8, 2014 story in the Independent. It’s described as a documentary on German wartime atrocities, based on the footage of the camps shot by entering British and Soviet film units. (Actually, much of the film comes from American film units from the “liberation” of Dachau, Buchenwald, Ordruf and other camps in the American Zone.)

Known as a “Hitchcock” film, it actually was not directed or even pieced-together by the famous filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock. It was Sidney Bernstein, chief of the Psychological Warfare Film Section of SHAEF, who commissioned the film and got Hitchcock included in the production, along with editor Stewart McAllister. Hitchcock was more of an adviser on the film’s editing and some say his style is evident in places.

Dr. Toby Haggith, Senior Curator at the Dept. of Research, Imperial War Museum (which has painstakingly restored the film using digital technology), says it was suppressed because, by the end of 1945 when the film was finally ready, the political situation had changed for the British, leaving them wanting to work with the Germans, not alienate them.

jan27_horror films_man in camp

In this scene from the film, Dr. Fritz Klein, showing every sign of the brutal British treatment toward him, tells the camera that he’s been in Bergen-Belsen camp for one-and-a half-years, while in the background German SS guards are forced to carry typhus-infested corpses to a pit and arrange them for a mass burial. Klein was later sentenced to death and hanged at Hamlin jail in December 1945.

The film, with it’s many scenes of corpses and emaciated bodies, was shown once in Germany at the 1984 Berlin Film Festival, followed by a 1985 broadcast on American PBS under the title “Memory of the Camps.” It can currently be seen on the Internet at topdocumentaryfilms.com. The narrative is read by British actor Trevor Howard in what has been described as “sardonic understatement,” but which sounded to me like snide superciliousness with sarcasm added. In the new version, the narration is read by a new actor (so far unnamed) and the film has been retitled, also not yet revealed.

Will this kind of “horror movie” still work?

The restored film is scheduled to be shown on British TV in January 2015 as part of the 70th Commemoration of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau on Jan. 27. Before that, it will be shown in various locations during the last part of 2014. How will it be received by contemporary audiences? It is expected to be highly disturbing, perhaps even traumatizing to some. But will it be convincing—to a 2014 audience that has had the benefit of 20 plus years of revisionism which a 1945 audience did not have?

Holocaust

Display at Buchenwald with shrunken heads of “former prisoners,” pieces of tattooed skin and lampshade “made of human skin.”

For my part, as a revisionist, I counted nineteen baldface lies, which the psychological warfare section had to know at the time were untrue, even if they were being used at the Nuremberg Tribunal for Major War Criminals. (Note these National-Socialist leaders were designated “war criminals” before they were even tried!). The lies include the “shrunken heads” and “lampshades made from tattooed human skin” of detainees at Buchenwald—shameful excesses which have since been admitted to be false by all holocaust historians. Also false is the claim in the film that shower heads at Dachau emitted poison gas instead of water, which the Court at Frankfurt am Main during the Degesch trial in 1949 found to be incorrect. It accepted the expert testimony of Dr. Heli and Dr. Ra that “introducing Zyklon B gas into a room by means of a tap through fake shower heads” was impossible. If these items remain in the film, it should be interesting to see the reaction. (See Carlo Mattogno, “Court finds gassing through fake shower heads is not possible”)

Because the Imperial War Museum and other of the film’s sponsors realize the explosive nature of this film (which could drive audiences either way), another newly created feature-length documentary from Spring Films Ltd. will be shown at the same time as the older film. The purpose of the new film, titled “Night Will Fall” is to “tell the remarkable story behind the making of the 1945 film, the people involved, and the reasons why it was never shown.” This explanation is apparently deemed necessary to facilitate the acceptance of the 1945 footage by 2015 audiences.

What is surely the most “horrific” of all Holocaust horror film documentaries is soon to be released to selected cinema screens worldwide—but will it be believed?

Swindler’s List by Ernst Zundel

Abundance of Bogus Holocaust Memoirs is now a Widely Publicized Fact  by Hadding Scott

False memoirs have long been a common tool of propaganda.

Sometimes, as in the case of Yankel Wiernik’s A Year in Treblinka, the memoir is published by a government (in this case the post-war Communist government of Poland). Wiernik’s pseudo-memoir claims, among other fantasies, that a naked Jewish woman wrested a rifle away from a guard and leapt over a three-meter fence — which would be a world’s record even today.

Very often, however, this kind of lying occurs without direct sponsorship of any government. Private individuals will make up stories about themselves that conform to the prevailing myth, whatever it may be. The motive may be just to attract attention, or to make money, or of course to add to the overall campaign of propaganda. Also, when some accused person seems guilty but the evidence of guilt is inconclusive, it can always happen that some false witness will come forth to fill the gap. That person thereby makes himself important, and can rationalize in his own mind that he is aiding justice by lying.

One subset of this kind of liar that we commonly encounter is the person who claims to have “lost” some number of relatives in “the Holocaust.” If you hear somebody make such a claim, ask for details. If any are given, compare them to known facts. Be aware that there may be a kernel of truth augmented with fiction to make an otherwise dull story more interesting (as may be the case with Norman Finkelstein’s claim that his father was in both the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising and Auschwitz).

The Daily Mail (21 June 2013) carries an essay by novelist and sometime historian Guy Walters that scratches the surface of this phenomenon. The title asks: “Could there be anything more twisted than these Holocaust fantasists?” It says that “more and more people are making up memoirs about witnessing Nazi crimes.” Walters names the following as fake memoirs:

Towards the Dawn by Joe Corry (2001). Corry claims to be a former member of a “Special Service Unit” during the Second World War. Walters points out that Corry’s claim to have discovered an “experimental extermination camp” in Holland cannot be true.

Fragments: Memories Of A Wartime Childhood by Binjamin Wilkomirski (1995). Walters says that this author was  exposed as a liar in 1998 “by a Swiss journalist, who revealed the author had been nowhere near the camps; that he was in fact called Bruno Grosjean, and had been raised in an orphanage.” (The book had won the National Jewish Book Award in the USA and the Prix Memoire de la Shoah in France before Daniel Ganzfried exposed it as a fraud.)

Angel at the Fence by Herman Rosenblat (2008). Rosenblat had gained notoriety through an appearance on Oprah in 1996. After the book was published, former inmates of the camp where the story was alleged to have taken place said that it was impossible, and within months Penguin withdrew the book from publication.

Misha: A Memoir Of The Holocaust Years by Misha Defonseca (1997). This Jewish woman claimed to have survived the Warsaw ghetto and been raised by wolves. She explained: “It’s not the true reality, but it is my reality.”

The Man Who Broke Into Auschwitz by Dennis Avey (2011). Walters himself exposed this as a fraud. (But not until after Carolyn Yeager exposed Avey first here, here and here. -ed)

Survivor Of The Long March: Five Years as a PoW 1940-1945 by Charles Waite (2012). This author claims to have witnessed a Jewish baby being snatched and killed by a guard in front of its mother. Walters notes that such episodes have become a staple of Holocaust literature; he considers them to lack credibility “for the simple reason that killing babies in front of their parents is not the best way to pacify a train full of prisoners.” Walters also suggests that most guards probably did not want to kill babies.

Do The Birds Still Sing In Hell? by Horace Greasley (2013). This author claims to have escaped from a German POW camp more than 200 times. Walters comments: “Mysteriously, Greasley’s PoW record held at the National Archives does not make one mention of these 200 ‘escapes’. Working camps for NCOs such as Greasley were not the tightly-guarded places conjured up by our collective imagination, which is weaned on images from Colditz and The Great Escape. In fact, bunking out of one’s camp to fraternise with local girls was hardly unusual, and certainly not ‘escaping’ in the sense most of us understand it.” One may infer that Greasley’s reference to his German POW camp as “Hell” is likewise an exercise in histrionics.

Defects in Walters’ Criticism

While presenting information that by its very nature suggests that the Holocaust story in general ought to be questioned, Walters has not gone all the way. On the contrary, Walters has taken preventive measures against being called a Holocaust-Denier, and against being called an anti-Semite. He has compromised his veracity in order to do that.

In the first place, Walters pretends that lying about “the Holocaust” is a relatively new phenomenon that only became common in the 1990s*. Walters is either shockingly ignorant of the history of disputes in this field or he is putting us on. Yankel Wiernik’sA Year in Treblinka was published in 1945.  Paul Rassinier, a Socialist who had been an inmate of Buchenwald and Dora, criticized the dishonesty of other former inmates with  The Lie of Ulysses: A Glance at the Literature of Concentration Camp Inmates as early as 1950, and continuing with other books into the 1960s. The observation that many people have lied about what they experienced during the Second World War dates from the war itself.

In his discussion of Joe Corry’s pseudo-memoir, Walters refrains from stating a fact that casts the entire Holocaust story into doubt. Walters does not point out that the Holocaust story has changed drastically since 1945. Mainstream historians today do not claim that there was any extermination-camp west of the current border between Poland and Germany, but the propaganda of 1945 claimed more extermination-camps spread over a wider area. (You will still encounter people who think that there were gassings at Dachau, Bergen-Belsen, and Buchenwald, but these are people that haven’t gotten the memo.) Corry’s tale of the “experimental extermination camp” might have been treated as credible in 1945 but it is not consistent with the official story that is enshrined today. Walters avoids mentioning that the Holocaust story has changed.

Walters covers himself against accusations of anti-Semitism by quoting a Jew who also complains about the lying. That Jew is one Felix Weinberg.

Based on the briefest perusal of what is available online of his book, I can say that Weinberg himself seems to be far from rigorously truthful. I noticed some obvious problems. Weinberg says: “…. the fact that inmates disappeared exactly six months after their arrival and that the chimneys were spouting smoke conveyed an ominous message.” Is it really true that inmates consistently disappeared six months after arriving at Auschwitz? It is hard to argue with Weinberg’s claim, because he could simply say the person who had allegedly spent more than six months in Auschwitz was lying — but the most easily available material indicates that there are such people. In any case Weinberg’s assumption that anybody who disappeared had been gassed is nothing more than an assumption and a rumor.

But it seems that Weinberg also fabricated aspects of his own story. Weinberg claims that the Germans made inmates waste their valuable labor in purely sadistic exercises, like digging holes and refilling them, and carrying bricks around in circles. For a highly educated nation at war, which was at the time suffering a severe shortage of labor, this is obvious poppycock.

Weinberg’s warning against Holocaust-liars seems to be a diversion. It’s analogous to a thief saying, “Watch out for pickpockets!” as he dips his hand into your pocket.

Walters does more than just quote Weinberg, however. He concludes his essay with: “We should all share the repugnance felt by the late Professor Weinberg, and read his book instead.” Really? Walters surely realizes that very few readers of his essay will bother to obtain Weinberg’s book. If they do, and if they have learned from Walters’ essay to exercise some skepticism, they will realize that Weinberg is hardly better than those he criticizes. And they will realize that Guy Walters does not tell the whole truth.

I suppose that Walters had to hide behind the apron of some Jew in order to get his essay published in mainstream media without suffering repercussions (such as have been experienced by David Irving) that would make it the last time he could get such exposure. After all, if it is true that publishing false memoirs damages the credibility of the Holocaust story, the key element in that damage is the exposition of the frauds, and Walters has contributed to that. I hope that Walters at least felt the urge to hold his nose while endorsing Weinberg in order to use him as a shield.

I cannot know for certain what Walters’ real intention was, but it seems to me that despite his stated intention to save the Holocaust from critics, despite his commendation of some allegedly legitimate Holocaust memoirs, the admission in a major news-source that much of the writing about the Holocaust is false — something that the general public likely did not know — represents a net plus for historical truth.

*I will concede however that the growth of Holocaustomania may have required a decade or so to peak after the NBC mini-series “Holocaust” initially popularized the term and the concept in 1978. Also, the end of the Cold War, and the fact that people in general were freed from worrying about themselves being incinerated in a nuclear holocaust, may have increased public receptivity to propaganda that urges pity for Jews to the near-exclusion of everybody else.

Auschwitz as we know it is a Hollywood creation  by the jan27.org Committee

Today’s Hollywood Jews are the heirs of the original crop of wartime Hollywood producers and directors who were called into service by the U.S. Army to “document” the concentration camps. Although they were not allowed into Auschwitz-Birkenau or Majdanek which were under the tight control of the Soviet Union, they actually had better film-making opportunities at the camps located in Germany proper which had suffered from intense American bombardment. With supply lines and infrastructure smashed to pieces, horrific scenes in these camps caused by hunger, poor hygiene and disease were not hard to find in 1945.

Frank Capra as a Major in the U.S. Army editing film.To tell the story, let’s go back to the beginning when George C. Marshall, U.S. Army Chief of Staff, called upon award-winning Hollywood director Frank Capra to head a special section on morale to explain to soldiers “why the hell they’re in uniform.” Marshall explained to Capra that these were not to be “propaganda films like those created by the Nazis and Japan, but sensitive and objective troop information films.” That, however, they were not.

Capra worked directly under Marshall, bypassing the Signal Corps, the Army’s film-making/propaganda department. During his first meeting with General Marshall, Capra was told his mission:

US Army Chief George Marshall pins a medal on Frank Capra for his outstanding service“Now, Capra, I want to nail down with you a plan to make a series of documented, factual-information films – the first in our history – that will explain to our boys in the Army why we are fighting, and the principles for which we are fighting … You have an opportunity to contribute enormously to your country and the cause of freedom. Are you aware of that, sir?” [Frank Capra, The Name Above the Title: An Autobiography, Capra, McMillian 1971, p. 326]

Capra went on to make the seven-episode Why We Fight series, which is full of inaccuracies and false statements about National Socialist Germany and its leadership – as well as the film, The Negro Soldier in 1944. Animated charts were created by Walt Disney and his animators. A number of Hollywood composers wrote the background music.

Officials made efforts to see that the films were seen in theaters throughout the U.S. They were translated into French, Spanish, Portuguese, and Chinese for use by other countries. Winston Churchill ordered that all of them be shown to the British public in theaters. They are today often broadcast on television and used in schools.

Charlie Chaplin satirizes Adolf Hitler in his film The Great Dictator in 1940.

Even earlier, Hollywood Megastar Charlie Chaplin, a communist, made The Great Dictator, satirizing the German Fuehrer as a megalomaniac who wanted to own the whole world. Making a comedy about Adolf Hitler in 1939 was seen as highly controversial, but Chaplin was determined to do it. It was a huge box-office and financial success.

Budd Schulberg in the navy.

Budd Schulberg, a Jewish film writer, son of producer/director B.P. Schulberg and nephew of Sam Jaffe on his mother’s side, was assigned during the war to the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) in John Ford‘s documentary unit. His job was to gather evidence against “war criminals” which led him to arrest Leni Riefenstahl at her chalet in Austria for questioning.
Ford rose to become a top adviser to OSS head William Joseph Donovan, who wanted a psychological study of Adolf Hitler that could be used if/when he was captured alive. Walter Langer, a Jewish psychologist who never met or talked to the Fuehrer was taken on by Donovan and wrote up an imaginative “profile” of Hitler as a dirty-minded derelict. [See here]

Billy Wilder in 1942

Billy Wilder was born in 1906 in Poland to a Jewish family. After high school he went to Berlin as a journalist, then screenwriter; in 1933 he moved on to Hollywood where he became highly successful.
In 1945, he directed a propaganda film Death Mills (Die Todesmühlen in German), for the Psychological Warfare Dept. of the US Department of War. Intended to be shown first to German audiences, its purpose was to indoctrinate them to believe that the wildest “atrocities” imaginable had been committed by the National Socialist regime and the SS.

Stanley Kramer directing.

Stanley Kramer was born in 1913 in New York City to Jewish parents who separated when he was very young. His mother and uncle Earl Kramer both worked at the NY offices of Paramount Pictures and Universal Pictures respectively.
Kramer wrote a weekly column for his college newspaper (NY University), and upon graduation was offered a paid internship in the writing dept at 20th Century Fox. Kramer went on to become a top director in Hollywood who took on controversial subjects, such as racism and fascism, as in Judgment at Nuremberg. Of its 1961 world premier in Berlin, Kramer wrote:

[T]he film went on, and when it was over there was a deafening silence. . . . The film was totally rejected [by the Berlin audience]: it never did three cents’ business in Germany. It played so many empty houses it just stopped. (Stanley Kramer: Film Maker by Donald Spoto, 1978, Putnam, p. 229)

The film showed newsreel footage of wartime Germany, questioned the legitimacy of the Hitler government and indicted the German people.

George Stevens, Oscar-winning film director

George Stevens was already a major Hollywood director when he joined the U.S. Army Signal Corps and headed a film unit from 1943 to 1946, under General Eisenhower. He shot footage of the liberation of Paris and the meeting of American and Soviet forces at the Elbe River, as well as “horrific scenes” from the Duben labor camp and the Dachau concentration camp. Stevens also helped prepare the Duben and Dachau footage and other material for presentation during the Nuremberg Trials.
In 1959, he directed the film version of The Diary of Anne Frank, which was based on the play of the same name.

Otto Preminger dressed to kill

Otto Preminger was born in 1905 in Bukovina (Austria-Hungary at the time) to Jewish parents. Among his very many hit films, he produced and directed Exodus in 1960. Widely characterized as a “Zionist epic”, the film was enormously influential in stimulating Zionism and support for Israel in the United States.

John Schlesinger

John Schlesinger, born in 1926 into a middle-class Jewish family in London, became an English film and stage director, and actor. He directed the 1976 Marathon Man, starring Jewish actor Dustin Hoffman, about “Nazi” war criminals hiding in America after the war.

Alan J. Pakula wrote, directed and produced "Sophie's Choice."

Alan J. Pakula was born to Polish-Jewish parents in 1928 in Bronx, NY. He attended Yale Univeristy where he majored in drama, then began his Hollyoood career in the 1950’s. He produced the anti-racist To Kill a Mockingbird which was nominated for best picture in 1962, and produced and directed the “holocaust hit” Sophie’s Choice, released in 1982. Pakula adapted Wm. Styron’s NOVEL for the screen—yes, a completely fictional story, although moviegoers are encouraged to think it really happened, that at Auschwitz “Sophie” (played by the very popular Meryl Streep) was forced by a cruel SS man to choose which of her two children would go to the gas chamber and which would proceed to the labor camp with her. Nothing like that ever happened.

*      *      *

We now jump forward to the current crop of Hollywood Jews involved in the 2015 Holocaust Memorial Day commemoration at Auschwitz-Birkenau M&M. They have created much of the programming and fanfare for the 70th Anniversary year (Jan 1945-Jan 2015). At the top of the list can only be:

Steven Spielberg in a recent photo - perhaps the most successful filmmaker in history?

Steven Spielberg, born in 1946 in an Orthodox Jewish family. He began making films with his friends in his early teens. His first directorial hit came in the mid-1970’s with Jaws, the fantastic success of which made Spielberg a household name and one of America’s youngest multi-millionaires. His films Close Encounters of the Third Kind and E.T. The Extra-terrestrial carried the message that people who were “different” should not be feared, and may even be superior.

In 1985, Spielberg released The Color Purple about a generation of empowered African-American women during depression-era America. Whoopi Goldberg and Oprah Winfrey starred in this huge critical and box-office success.

His “holocaust” film came along in 1993 – Schindler’s List, based on the NOVEL Schindler’s Arc by Thomas Keneally,which was itself loosely based on the real-life character of NSDAP member Oscar Schindler. No doubt because of the subject matter, the film gave Spielberg his first Academy Award for Best Director and also won Best Picture. Spielberg used the massive profits to set up the Shoah Foundation, a non-profit organization that archives filmed testimony of “Holocaust survivors.” In 1997, the American Film Institute listed Schindler’s List among the “10 Greatest American Films ever Made” (#9) which moved up to (#8) when the list was remade in 2007. ??!! A look at the names of the members of the American Film Institute would probably explain that.

Amistad was another anti-White film based on a kinda-sorta true story (like Schindler’s List), about an African slave rebellion. Following that,  Saving Private Ryan glorified the WWII Allied landing at Normandy and the entire “good war” theme, and won him another Academy Award. Spielberg’s second film about Jews was Munich, about the events following the 1972 deaths of Israeli athletes at the Olympic Games. This film underperformed at the box-office.

Eric Hunt's documentary about a documentary

Never mentioned anymore by Spielberg, though it won an Academy Award for best Documentary, is his 1998  The Last Days, featuring interviews with five self-identified survivors of the deportation of Hungarian Jews to Auschwitz in 1944.  Revisionist and video-maker Eric Hunt has shown this documentary to be full of false claims and downright lies in his critical video which he named The Last Days of the Big Lie. Hunt even brought a lawsuit against Spielberg and Irene Zisblatt. who is featured in the film, because Spielberg’s film is advertised with the tag-line “Everything you are about to see is true.” Eric Hunt proved it wasn’t (not even close).

Spielberg’s estimated net worth is $3 billion.

Spielberg’s hand-picked fellow-members on this year’s Jan. 27 Holocaust Remembrance Day all-Jew program committee are:

David Geffen, Hollywood mogul

David Geffen, son of Eastern European Jewish immigrants, is openly gay. Having never graduated from college, he began his business career in Los Angeles by tampering with the mail! He worked in the mail room of the company to which he was applying for a higher-level job that required a college degree. He intercepted and “modified” the letter sent from UCLA informing the company that he did not graduate from there to falsely stating he did, then passing the letter on through to the company. Oh, but that’s excused for him because he was born in 1943, making his parents holocaust survivors of some sort or other. Geffen is worth an estimated $6 billion.

Jeffrey Katzenberg

Jeffrey Katzenberg is also the son of Jewish parents; his father was a NYC stockbroker. He is CEO of DreamWorks Animation, co-founded with Spielberg and Geffen, and was chairman of Walt Disney Studios from 1984-94. He began his career as assistant to Barry Diller, Chairman at Paramount Pictures. He is considered one of the Democratic Party’s top national fundraisers. His estimated net worth is $1 billion.

Harvey Weinstein heads the Weinstein production Company

Harvey Weinstein, Jewish, son of Max Weinstein, a diamond cutter, and Miriam (Postal), he grew up in New York City. He’s co-founder of Miramax Films and The Weinstein Company. He has been accused of being down and dirty in his business dealings, has shown a violent temper, and been involved in numerous lawsuits. Weinstein recently said, in regard to the Charlie Hebdo attack, that “It draws a parallel to the horrors of the Nazis and their mad attempt at Kristallnacht to destroy books.” Destroy books? Harvey needs to brush up on his “Nazi” history.
