Typical American Jewish propaganda piece design to blame Poland and Poles for holocaust, full of distorted history and lies presented as a viewpoint of some uneducated Jew who does not even know his own History. Sad really, one would think it’s in your peoples interest to keep the memory alive. The author is not wasting any time he just goes on the offensive right off the bat.
“When we arrived in Krakow, the weather was very different from the sunny clean air of Israel. It was cold and dreary with no sun, and the people had an unfriendly demeanor.”
Then he goes on to state
“even today Jewish groups do not go to Poland without a bodyguard.”
I’m not surprised, really for it’s the state of Israel’s policy to provide the bodyguards for the youth tours more to do with keeping them away from locals so they are not tainted with the real historical truth and to keep them out of trouble for they are prone to violence and show them where the bathrooms are so they don't smear the s**t on the walls of their Hotel rooms then with the reality he’s suggesting.
“even that thousands of Jews that were killed here, but today people picnic on this memorial ground, a clear indicator of the indifference towards the horrors of WWII.”
Oh please try to be more creative and original next time, we all seen the images’ of young Israelis taking a tour to the border of Gaza and picnicking while IDF dropped bombs on defenseless civilians in Gaza. Just because your people are accused, of with pictures to prove it and most important capable of does not automatically mean everyone else does this sort of thing.
I stopped reading it after paragraph and a half, just had enough. Looks to me like the author has a great future in Journalism, his education now is complete and equal to that of other American Jewish pseudo Journalists’. This article is full of ignorant statements design to provoke hatred. I.E.
“The only reason the synagogue was even there today was because it was used to store bodies during the war.”
Is the author even aware that after the Nazis had ruined it during WW2, the Old Synagogue was rebuilt in the mid-1950s and since 1961 the Old Synagogue at 24 Szeroka street has housed the museum of Jewish history and traditions, it has been crammed with relics of Krakow’s former Kazimierz Jewish quarter, items relating to religious rites and family traditions, pictures, old photos, documents presumably all thanks to the righteous Germans and none existent Jews that had been all murdered by the Poles.
Over all, an eye opening, informative piece for those that want to join the Jewish equivalent of Hitler Youth Vladi.
