The Forgotten Holocaust

  1. This has to be one of the most heartbreakingly sad and perplexing things I have seen in a while.

    I don't understand. Half a million Russian Jews displaced, 100,000 killed. A total of 600,000 killed and persecuted Jews.

    Then 12,000 German Jewish soldiers serve in the German military in WW I and yet...the Holocaust of WW II still happens.

    Jewish soldiers were recruited and yet...nobody did anything about all the pogroms. All these countries recruiting Jewish soldiers--why didn't they do anything to help them?

    This is very shocking and yet ask most people and the only tragedy they know about Russia and WW I is the murder of the tsar and his and family.

    An eye opening post.
