My great aunt survived the holocaust while her sister died at 3 and her mother was murdered for helping them escaped. The American army found her when she was 5 years old.

And some of them, they starve so badly that you can see their bones and limbs.. Thank god she is alive.. Rest In Peace to all of the Jewish.. No one should make a Nazi joke.. Just think about if you were Jewish and seeing starving babies, women, girls, men, boys, think if you ended up like that.

So my dear Israel, do You still be trying to convince the whole World there were Polish concentration camps with Polish people killing others or was it nazi germans(funded by certain sources) who did all that? You are blocking Jedwabne exhumation for what reason? Are You afraid Your lies will come out? Trying to rewrite history as wish for Yourself, make Polish the aggressors as You are making Palestine and many more. The Truth is coming and will succeed. Thanks for the video.

I'm not Jewish, but when I read about or see documentary films or videos about the holocaust it breaks my heart. I know it was not only Jews that suffered but other people as well were persecuted. Many times throughout history people have mistreated and killed their fellow human beings for being different. I know this will never end or change. But please be kind to each other. We can be different and get along peacefully. Bless your grandmother for being strong and surviving such a horrific ordeal. And bless you for sharing her courageous story.
