This came in an e-mail from my sister in GERMANY! I've changed the content to match what I've found on the news about UK schools. It's sentiment remains. Apparently, this e-mail is one that's been circulating, but the part about UK schools was based on false information.
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 bastard will get up and say that this never happened"
All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do
Some UK schools and some teachers are avoiding the teaching of the Holocaust for fear of offending Muslims. (It used to say: In Memorial
this week, the UK removed The Holocaust from its school curriculum
it "offended" the Muslim population which claims it never occurred. )
This is a frightening portent of the fear that is gripping the world
and how easily each country is giving into it.
It is now more than 60 years after the Second World War in Europe
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
while the German and Russia peoples looking the other way!
Now, more than ever, with Iran, among others, claiming the Holocaust
it is imperative to make sure the world never forgets.
