The Holocaust was the darkest point in human history since the jews killed Jesus
By: Matthew Parten

Holocaust. Concentration camps. A mere three words, yet they symbolize the pain and the suffering of millions.

They symbolize the pain of Jewish villagers. The pain of captured Allied soldiers. The pain of students pulled off the streets of Krakow and of other European cities. The pain of American visitors, arrested despite their American passports.

The story behind these words tells of how they were crammed into the cattle cars of trains, without room to even sit down, up to eighty people in each car. It tells of how the prisoners were deported, often traveling for a week or more without food, to the concentration camps. It tells of how the trains stopped only to have the prisoners throw out the bodies of those who died during the terrible trip.

It tells of how they were gassed. It tells of how they were tortured. It tells of how they were beaten. It tells of how they were hung. It tells of how they starved. It tells of how their bodies were burned. But, most of all, the story of these three words tells of how they were killed.

And what of those who managed to survive? It is their story also.

Those who bear the nazi identification numbers engraved on their left arms. Those who came out of the camps weighing barely a fraction of their previous weight. Those who watched their sisters, their brothers, their parents, and their friends waste away and die. Those who felt the same happening to themselves. Those who are still in therapy, more than 50 years after their liberation. Those who were stripped of their self pride even as they were forced to strip away their clothes and run past SS officers who would decide whether they lived or died. Those who were forced to work in the crematoriums, those who added their parents’ bodies to the raging inferno of human flesh. Those who were so hungry, so desperate, that they cut off the buttocks of corpses and ate them, before adding the bodies to the crematoriums. The hundreds of children who felt the world had betrayed them and committed suicide, or gave up trying to live, after they were liberated.

Does it not make one wonder if, perhaps, it might have been better had they died during their first weeks?

Perhaps some may ponder what was the worst of the atrocities committed at the concentration camps.

What can be worse than that the camps existed at all?

The Holocaust was HI-LARIOUS!

Stupid jews...that's what you get for fucking with our boy Jesus.




Seriously though, I'd totally fuck Anne Frank.
