General Eisenhower was correct when he predicted that future generationswould 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 historysome b*stard will get up and say that this never happened''All that is necessary for the triumphof evil is for good men to do nothing'Edmund BurkeThis week, the UK removed TheHolocaust from its school curriculumbecause it 'offended' the Muslimpopulation which claims it never occurred.This is a frightening po rtent of the fear that is grippingthe 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 WorldWar II from 1942 until 1945.
