Kansas State Historical Society next week will remember Holocaust

April 15, 2010


— A Holocaust commemoration service takes place next week at the Kansas State Historical Society museum in Topeka.

Monday's event will include a talk by Holocaust survivor Eva Unterman, of Tulsa, Okla., who was 12 years old when World War II ended. She was a young child when her family was moved to Poland's Lodz Ghetto and later to the Nazis' Auschwitz concentration camp.

Republican state Rep. Lana Gordon of Topeka is one of the organizers of Monday's commemoration. Gordon says the presentation will give a firsthand account of the Holocaust and the effect on world history of Nazi Germany's killing of millions of Jews.

The commemoration service is open to the public.

Too bad the one-who-can-not-be-named is no longer around, or he will extol us with the brilliance of David Irving..... Or post some idiotic plagiarized statement from the "The Institute for Historical Review" (a notorious Holocaust denialist organization)

Of course the "one-who-can-not-be-named" would say he never denied the Holocaust, but then would spout the exact same lines as the denialists.

But he is (mostly) gone.

I am certainly enjoying this improvement in the LJW forums.

Please, everyone:

Ignore the Fred Phelps clan and the "Westboro Baptist Chuch" picketers. They are almost certain to be there.

Upon rechecking my posts to be SURE they were correct, I feel pretty stupid! It's spelled "Temple Beth Sholom", not "Shalom"!
