RE: THE HOLOCAUST The fact that the holocaust was carried out by a supposedly civilized group of people is a sad commentary on the concept of 'March of Civilization." It is unthinkable that the cultured Nazi SS members could be as bestial as the Roman Legionnaire of CE 70, 110, 132 despite their nurturing in a Christian Society that emphasizes love and forgiveness. How did 34 percent of Germany that supported the Nazis in 1933 dominate and enslave the other 66 percent of Germans? The annihilation of innocent Jews, especially children, who were not guilty of murder had confounded many but is now readily explained by the SS's and Nazi Gauleiters' desire to rob the Jews of their considerable wealth. Jews world wide are hereby warned to restrain from flaunting their wealth in the face of the rest of mankind. Unbelievably as it may sound, the holocaust may happen again! Jews are today being accused of being in a worldwide conspiracy to enslave others economically and being the cause of Ukraine crisis. Reply

EVA SCHLOSS ANNE FRANK'S STEPSISTER I was absolutely spelbound by all you went through and the miracles that happened to you and your mother. It is obvious that there is only ONE who runs this world and who knows and sees everything. We must have faith in Hashem all the time even when we are down and the future looks bleek. You have shown this very comprehensively. I am very impressed with the facts you stated so clearly with no stuttering or stammering. I wish all the very best in all things that you do. Hatzlachah.

Dear Ms. Schloss, Thank you for your time and placing your life story out for us to learn with your relations to Ann Frank. I have been very moved and humbled. The years of WWII by the 3rd Reich power still reaches me as unimaginable to conceive. The story of the Holocaust continues to just grip me of its horror with individual human lives taken into disgraces beyond reason. The roles of individuals taken to believe without any conscious feeling and going to levels of torture and horrendous treatments of the Jewish children, women, and men is a scope of history that is a must to tell forever. I am so pleased you have come to let us know of your history. My best wishes to you and your family. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Reply

I need to say that i am touched by Ms Schloss story.
There are no words to express my warm feelings for the survivors who still fight for humanity and justice.
As she said: iT is our duty to fight for humanity and justice and to stand up if we have to.
Very true!

I really do not know how the survivors were able to go on with life considering the terrible memories they were haunted by. Listening to these stories always gives me nightmares but it is so important that the world not be allowed to ever forget. Reply

Truly , an Honor to meet yet another Survivor When I was just 7-8 yrs. old ,I came across the pictorial History of WW2 .Within the pages of the "European Campaign " were all of the concentration camps , each with their own common stories of Man's Inhumanity to his Fellow Human Beings .All throughout my life , I have been drawn to Jewish History and their wonderful Spirit for Life in the face of death ! As a boy , my 2 Israeli hero's were Golda Maier and that gutsy General Moshe Dyan and then in 1982 , I got to go to Israel ,walk the streets of Jerusalem, work in 2 Kibbutzim and best of all , I got to work for the Survivors as a house cleaner ! I loved their trust and they allowed me to ask questions and their replies were of course very sensitive . The as I moved to Canada , here in the Okanagan , my landlord was the Italian Ambassadors Translator in Berlin in WW2 ! She was Jewish ! Such a wonderful and gifted , lovely group of families of Human Beings . I am Truly Honored to know you . Here , in my little home and shop ..WELCOME ! Reply

We must never forget. thank you for sharing your story Thank you for sharing your story. I am American But My fathers grandparents were all born in Poland. and Even in the USA the anti-Semitism is horriable. and every time someone says you can't I give them 6 Millions reasons why I can and I do. Every holiday every Shabbat I think about that. I am single and I will ONLY marry a Jewish man. so I will make sure that 6 million including your father and brother along with Anne Frank Will never be forgotten. and I personally won't and I was born in 1970. I am Jewish and proud. again thank you for sharing your story. Reply
