Did The German People Know About The Nazi Death Camps. ?

The Nazi death camps were part of Hitler's final solution. Most of these camps were located in Poland and Jews were herded into these camps and 'executed'. Either they were shot or buried alive. Others were gassed to death with poison gas. It was terrible but many Germans aver that the common people were unaware of these camps. Is it so ?

The running of these camps was a full fledged exercise that involved thousands of ordinary people like doctors, scientists , Financiers and many more. They were manned by the Gestapo and these men had relations spread over Germany. Hence

it is more than probable that the German people were aware of the death camps , but they shrugged of the camp as an inevitable part of history.

The US soldiers who were interviewed after the war were clear that most if not 90% of theGerman populace were aware of


the death camps. They never discussed these camps as they feared to be sent to the concentration camps which Hitler ran for men who opposed him.

 The death camps are a blot on German character. One cannot visualize how in the 20th century Hitler could send enmasse so many men and women including children to their death. Perhaps teh seeds lay in the weakness of the Allies who allowed Hitler to thrive.

What of the future. The death camps are gone but a hideous form of government is still on on. Countries that believe in beheading and consider the Holocaust a myth. Yes ! this is the statement of the of the Iranian President.

It is about time the world awoke to a menace of another Hitler. There is a beast in man and that surfaces now and then.
