George -- I feel compassion for all innocent
victims of war, the crime I call Innocenticide.
I do not reserve my compassion only for the Jewish
victims, which is a fault committed by many (though not
all) Jews, and which in the long run just generates more
If the Nazis
locked you up as a ten year old Jewish child, that was
clearly wrong. But the Americans (the CIC) did precisely
the same to the children of the Nazis in 1945: Edda
Göring, then aged seven, was locked in prison with
her mother. Do you approve of that? I am sure you don't.
This was done purely as a means of applying psychological
pressure to the prisoners, to sign on the dotted line at
Your father was
murdered, you state, by the SS guards at Belsen. You do
not say how and why (if there was any reason). Please
expand, since it is hard to respond otherwise.You also do
not explain why you were hospitalized for 24 months. My
guess would be under-nourishment or typhus, or both. For
which we Allies bear an equal measure of the blame with
the Nazis, since we bombed the transportation, the
pharmaceutical factories, and the food supplies with
precisely the intention of producing such conditions.
In fact we even
encouraged the underground resistance movements to
typhus bacilli among
their enemies. But microbes are poor respecters of
uniforms and frontiers.I look forward to hearing from
you; I imagine, by the way -- and you will forgive me for
this, I hope, if I am totally wrong,-- that you have
received, and are probably still receiving today, over
fifty years later, large sums of money from the German
taxpayers in compensation for the wrongs done to you?
Which leaves you rather better off than the other
innocents who suffered equally elsewhere.
