WWII photos and why they are more important than ever in 2008

General Eisenhower was correct when he predicted that future generations
would attempt to forget these tragic events from the holocaust.

It is a matter of history that when Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces, General Dwight Eisenhower, found the victims of the death camps, he ordered all possible photographs to be taken, and for the German people from surrounding villages to be ushered through the camps and even made to bury the dead.
He did this because he said in words to this effect:
'Get it all on record now - get the films - get the witnesses -
because somewhere down the track of history
some b*stard will get up and say that this never happened'
'All that is necessary for the triumph
of evil is for good men to do nothing'
Edmund Burke
This week, the UK removed The
Holocaust from its school curriculum
because it 'offended' the Muslim
population which claims it never occurred.
This is a frightening po rtent of the fear that is gripping
the world and how easily each country is giving in to it.
These photos were taken in Germany by James Emison Chanslor,
an Army Master Sergeant who served in World
War II from 1942 until 1945.

It is now more than 60 years after the Second World War in Europe ended.
This e-mail is being sent as a memorial chain, in memory of the
six million Jews, 20 million Russians, 10 million Christians and 1,900 Catholic priests who were murdered, massacred, raped, burned, starved and humiliated with the German and Russian peoples looking the other way!
Now, more than ever, with Iran, among others, claiming the Holocaust to be 'a myth,' it is imperative to make sure the world never forgets.
This e-mail is intended to reach 40 million people worldwide!
Be a link in the memorial chain and help distribute this around the world.
Don't just delete this. It will only take a minute to pass this along.
Let's cover the world and remember because we cannot let it ever happen again.
