"In those days, to be a Jew in Nazi-occupied Europe meant that a man would be dragged from his home, put into a train with thousands of others, deported to a distant camp with or without his wife and children, beaten, starved and humiliated for a few days or weeks of forced labor, after which his emaciated, wrecked and shambling body would be scientifically asphyxiated, his hair shaven off to make mattresses, his bones crushed and melted down to make soap. The gold fillings from his teeth would be assembled to sustain the declining German war effort. His wife and children would be submitted to similar agonies, tortures and murders in specially constructed camps. Particularly unbelievable but patently true was the fact that a million Jewish children were being flung into furnaces and burned to death."Let me get this straight, in Nazis camps men, women and children were turned into slaves, tortured and murdered, and then their remains were turned into mattresses and soap. Very gruesome indeed, yet some people like to compare what the Nazis did at their camps, to what is currently happening at Gitmo under the Americans. For the life of me, I fail to see how that is a realistic comparison.
