    War and Racial Discrimination should never happen again. We should learn from the mistakes of the past. Its a shame we have enough artillery for war but not enough food for the poor and people we displace in these wars.

      imbecile You mean the same Elie Wiesel who claimed to be gassed 12 times, LIED UNDER OATH in court about a tattoo he did not have, and somehow met the teleporting Doctor Mengele who was stationed miles away from where he was?

      Crystina Alvarez i don’t know about you, but my class has read multiple books like Night by Eliezer Wiesel about their experiences at concentration camps . Yes, it should be more apart of our school systems, but if you’re interested enough you’d go out and learn more about it 🤷🏽‍♀️

    As the Chief Physician of the Gypsy Camp at Auschwitz-Birkenau, Dr. Mengele ordered that a Kindergarten with full playground be built for the Gypsy children. Oh, what an evil man he was.....
    “Gypsy children and young people made up the second most numerous group. For 17 months (February 1943-August 1944), like the Jews from Terezin, they [gypsies] stayed in a special family camp in Birkenau (sector BIIe). Among the 11 thousand children and young people who passed through this camp, almost 9.5 thousand were under 15, and 378 children were born there. For a short time, these children enjoyed certain privileges: they could live with their loved ones, and they received slightly better food. On orders from the head SS physician in the Gypsy camp, Dr. Mengele, a Kindergarten was set up in sector BIIe in the summer of 1943. It had the role of a day-care center and preschool, and featured a playground equipped with a carousel, sandbox, and swings. ” --

    It's nice kids can meet actual survivors in flesh and blood reality. The Christ-Killer stuff is a bit much. Not saying it couldn't happen...never heard it myself, but it is historically a pretty retarded taunt. Yeshua was Jewish, as was almost the entire First Century Church.
    Still, sitting with a survivor is a good way to impress upon kids a sense of immediacy of time and place.

    My moms uncle was 10, and he had a twin brother. They and there family escaped the consentration camp, the parents were shot and killed, and the twin brother. The one kid was left. There were guards shooting at him, and he ran into stacks of hay. He spent time with a non Jewish family, and then they moved to America. My moms grandpa was a teen aged at the time, and his family was dead. He was in a train to a death camp, he jumped off the train through a vent, escaped, and went to live is Israel. And he is still alive today

    Excellent guest for this video. What a devastating experience this man has had, and how honest he is. Thank you. Everyone needs to see this, and videos on this subject. We must never forget, and work to stop the genocides that are happening as we speak, and potential ones, as well. We must all speak up and act, so that is safer for others to do so, as well.

    If I was given the opportunity to talk to Henry, I would really want to but if he started talking to me like he was to them, I would of broken down crying and would give him the biggest hug. I can't believe something like the holocaust would ever occur. My heart goes out to all the countless lives lost in the war including my own.

    There are organizations who are trying to preserve these stories for the future. We need to support them for these purposes. Some of my family got out from Austria before then but others didn't make it. When some of them came to the US they changed their names and even their religion because they were afraid of what would happen to them here.

    That little black girls ancestors have gone through worst atrocities. Yet there is still no recompense. No trials, and no reparations just a “Get over it”. Glad he said there have been other Genocides as well.

    10k in that town and not all of them went into the camps. From the ones that did go 100% did not die. So the 6mill figure is pretty questionable. Yes I know they gathered people from all over not just that town, but keep in mind not all the people in the camps where Jewish either.
