Peepo Choo vol 2
I think that a lot of tumblr would benefit from reading peepo choo idk
This is important.
The immediate reaction of German POWs upon watching uncensored footage of the concentration camps shot by the US Signal Corps.
People often forget that most of the German troops had no idea about what was going on, they weren’t all fanatic Nazis bent on genocide, they were just regular soldiers who answered the call when their country went to war.
THANK YOU SO MUCH OMG
NO NO NO NO
ENOUGH WITH THIS
THE GERMAN CITIZENS KNEW
The ghettos happened in cities, the apartheid laws happened under their noses, Jews were rounded up under their noses THEY FRICKING KNEW
Death camps and concentration camps were built WITHIN CITY LIMITS. Auschwitz, for example, is well within the city, and people take fricking strolls under its walls. I was fucking THERE, don’t even. The Polish knew, the Germans knew, it was LITERALLY IMPOSSIBLE not to know. It’s even in the historical record, it’s even in fricking civilian diaries, THEY KNEW.
I AM SO FRICKING SICK OF THIS REVISIONIST BS.
Sorry not sorry, German apologists, but what you’re seeing in this photo isn’t shock, it’s guilt. Richly deserved, completely merited GUILT. So take your, “Aw, those innocent little German soldiers, poor babies,” revisionist crap and shove it back up your collective butts.
I seriously cannot re-blog the commentary on this enough.
Every time you imagine the ghettos and camps being isolated, away from the germans, slap yourself. Get that imagine out of your head and see that these places were right around cities and towns.
Ok for starters Auschwitz is definitely not within the city limits, it’s about a twenty minute bus ride out of the city. And second, while I’m not saying the German soldiers didn’t know, this is Hitler we’re talking about. Do people really think that every able bodied man wasn’t forced into signing up? The way that most men in the UK were, or else be branded a conscientious objector and arrested? I just find this viewpoint incredibly offensive, my grandfather was a German naval engineer who happened to be caught up in a war he had no say in, much like the majority of both German and English soldiers. He was NOT a Nazi, and the insinuation that he was is personally distressing to me.
i am reminded that english is a flawed language every time I am forced to use “that that” in a sentence
So my mom and I have been working the same waitress job for 5-6 years now. She had been waitressing years before, but this is recently. Anyway, about… 15 minutes ago this guy she waited on left and told her to take care. Just that. Prior to this she had talked to him about Italy. Her people are from Florence, this and that, and she said she’s never been. She’s got 8 years of art education and she’s working a waitress job. It’s pretty… Sad and disappointing, I guess. Her and my father divorced 6 years ago and she hasn’t had a real job ever. Just been stuck in a small town she’s not from.
This man who we have never seen before tipped her 1000 dollars for a trip to Italy. Walked out, not another word.
Why does’t this have more notes
There are good fuckin people in this world man.
Maybe I should go back to waiting tables.
For a second I thought that the bill was $1000 and he only left a $60 tip…that’s how jaded the human race has made me -_- lol
10 Things Most Americans Don’t Know About America http://bananenplanet.wordpress.com/2012/07/17/10-things-most-americans-dont-know-about-america/ (via curlycherie)
There are two areas where the USA is way out in front of the rest of the world: war and prison. The technology of killing is the main investment of US national energy, and of course the semi-public semi-private incarceration economy is flourishing while schools and roads crumble. In many other quality-of-life terms — housing, healthcare, public transportation, public access to technology, mental health support, support for people with disabilities, childcare, primary education, maternity support, social safety net — I think a lot of US Americans personally know that things are not exactly rosy but see no options for fixing it.
