The World Jewish Congress and the Auschwitz Myth
For three days in January, 2017, the World Jewish Congress was allowed to have this installation operating next to the “Monument to the Victims,” the main tourist attraction at Auschwitz II – Birkenau.

So long as the Auschwitz Myth retains its terrible power, the recovery of our national self-esteem is virtually impossible.
This was written in 1979 by Wilhelm Stäglich, a Finance Court judge in Hamburg and former Army officer whose duties in 1944 put him in contact with the SS command at the Auschwitz main camp. Even though 38 years have passed, Germans have still not regained their self-esteem in 2017. The Auschwitz Myth and “its terrible power” is the reason.
The World Jewish Congress (WJC) not only virtually created the myth but since has led the campaign to keep its handiwork alive. It is in the interests of World Jewry to keep not only Germans but as much of the white world as possible in a belief of everlasting guilt for unspeakable crimes against the Jewish people. This means, 72 years after the so-called liberation of Auschwitz, the memory of the myth must remain fresh and alive. Thus, the WJC played a major role in getting a resolution passed in 2005 at the United Nations for a day of commemoration to “honor the victims of the holocaust” and, once accomplished, continues to participate strongly every year at remembrance ceremonies at the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial/Museum in Poland.
The World Jewish Congress has had a special relationship with the Polish leadership at the former WWII concentration camp going all the way back to 1942. You can get some idea of it by reading this article.
For three days in January, 2017, the WJC was allowed to have a giant screen displaying photos of people holding “We remember” or “I remember” signs operating next to the “Monument to the victims ...,” the main tourist section at Auschwitz II – Birkenau. The point of the scheme is to keep remembrance alive – that is, “Never Forget.” As long as remembrance succeeds, the Germans are denied their national self-esteem. Even worse, most Germans today have so bought into this myth that they don't even want their self-esteem back. They see it as dangerous! The result is a critically low birthrate among Germans. So what we have is the Jewish nation and its good pitted against the German nation and its salvation. Because, make no mistake, the German nation is dying and needs a strong turn-around to return to a state of health.
Of this installation at Auschwitz-Birkenau, World Jewish Congress CEO Rober Singer said:
"The goal is to reach those who don’t know much about the Holocaust, or who might be susceptible to those who deny it, and to remind the world that such horrors could happen again. Using the tools of social media we hope to engage the next generation, because, soon, it will be their responsibility to tell the story and ensure that humanity never forget.
"Auschwitz-Birkenau was the Nazis’ biggest killing site and is the best-known symbol for the Shoah world-wide.
"We thank the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum for allowing the screening on the grounds of the former death camp, and for supporting our campaign.”
In Germany recently, Björn Höcke , a regional leader in the populist Alternative für Deutschland (AfD) party said in a speech (and aroused a storm of protest led by Jews): “We are the only people in the world to plant a monument of shame in the heart of its capital,” referring to the acres of coffin-like concrete slabs designed as a memorial to murdered Jews in Berlin's city center. He added that Germans had the “mentality of a totally vanquished people.”
Höcke also said “German history is handled as rotten [bad, spoiled] and made to look ridiculous.”
So which way should you go? The way that will save the Jewish Myth, with it's terrible power to destroy the German nation – or the way that will save the German nation but destroy the myth? There is no meeting ground here - it is one or the other.
