May you be blessed! You're an incredible man and a hero. I hope this evil never ever comes again and thoes responsible must pay for their evil crimes!!!!! May all the Jews be blessed and protected by G-d. We must stop the hatred now!! We can all learn to live and love each other. Learn from others who are different. There is so much to be learned and shared by all in G-d's world to make it a better place FOR EVERYONE! Reply

Dennis is a hero & telling us the TRUTH & exposing the evil of the Nazi regime is a great revelation to the younger generations & those who claimed it never happened,but isn't it ironic that concentration camps were invented in Britain & Hiltler gained most of his ideas from British Empire building!
