I think myself a christian, but i have read many true story books about what happened to jews, but not only jews in the war, and seen many films about true stories on ascapes from camps by children and what happened to them and the people that helped them after when some people were caught.
Sorry but we should never be allowed to forget all this, what is so upseting in modern days is the fact of what is happening now by jewish people, have they forgot.
Why cant people and countries get on with each other, have we not seen enough murder in the world on the battlefield without seeing it in modern day camps.
English were no better we had camps like the germans, just not that bad thank god.
The HOLOCAUST must never be forgot, NEVER.
We certainly did NOT have camps like the Germans!!!! Even the concentration camps used during the Boer War were only holding camps.
The camps used by the Germans were death camps and extermination factories, there is no comparison at all and it is crass to suggest so.
What is happening in the Middle East today is a continuing fight by the Jewish people to protect themselves from others who would wish to see them exterminated.
Dear Martinuk777, As much as you would like to re-write history, the BRITISH invented concentration camps, not the Germans. Even though they outnumbered the Afrikanners, they realised they could not win the war against the South African men DEFENDING THEIR COUNTRY against the British who wanted ownership rights on the diamonds and gold. So they burnt the farms, raped and humiliated the women and children and rounded the surviving women and children into camps, where they starved them, tortured them, and got other kicks by medical experiments. They were only interested in Afrikaans women and children. Sound familiar? Not seen the photos taken by BRITISH journalists of abused and starved children? Not seen the article where the corpses contained glass pieces? Let me explain! The British not only starved them, but when they gave them food they mixed it with broken glass which resulted in death by internal bleeding. Shall I go on? Or perhaps you thought the British are still hated in South…
About feeding them glass,it angers me,why? It was no secret they were killing them,why did they do it in such a way like feeding glass,it would of been better for them to just go fast because they were going to be killed eat her way...it breaks my heart to learn of such horrifying painfully deaths they put them threw.........
>the BRITISH invented concentration camps, not the Germans.
I think you have been misled by Nazi propaganda.
"The persistent belief that the British invented the concentration camp has been the
war's [WW2] most enduring propaganda issue."
page 13, Propaganda and Mass Persuasion: A Historical Encyclopedia, 1500 to the Present.
According to Robertson, Patrick. "The Book of Firsts," Clarkson N. Potter,
Inc., New York, 1974, p. 44.
"The idea that the British 'invented' concentration camps was fostered by
Dr. Goebbels during the 1930s."
For example, Imperial Spain's RECONCENTRADO POLICY operated 1895 - 1899 which is four years before Kitchener's adoption of concentration camps in the Second Anglo
The RECONCENTRADO POLICY was implemented by Valeriano Weyler y Nicolau, who had a Prussian background. Maybe that's why people think concentration camps are a German invention.
