~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~《TW: Nazi's》~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
There's this thing that has been bothering me for a while now. Every. Single. Book. Fair. has a solid 5 books about the Holocaust. Don't get me wrong, it's important for kids to know about what happened and that it was wrong. But I feel like it's being romanticized...like...why are there so many books about the Holocaust for CHILDREN...WHY!? You don't need to rub it in Jewish people's faces that they were persecuted. I feel so fucking bad for them. They can't even go to a BOOK FAIR without being reminded of the horrible things that happened. jesus christ.

I saw your post about Holocaust Remembrance Day - thank you for the resources. I’ll be using them with my students.
Sorry to be tacky and ask but ... will we be getting more of the Alaskan story?
Oh my goodness, I’m so honored that you’re even considering it!! Big Sonia (nonfiction, documentary) or Lena’s 100 Children (feature film, way down at the bottom) would be fantastic as they’re INCREDIBLY informative but not overly graphic.
I also can’t recommend “The Girls of Room 28” highly enough. (not sure how old your students are or even for you, personally) It involves many different narratives of young women who lived through Theresienstadt and Auschwitz-Birkenau... and it even references “Hana’s Suitcase” if that’s already in your curriculum.
Ha! As for Alaska, I have MUCH MUCH more planned. I’m currently working on getting Metamorphosis wrapped up, but DINNA FASH, Alaska will continue, I promise. 💕🐾

DEATH FUGUE
Black milk of morning we drink you evenings
we drink you at noon and mornings, we drink you at night.
We drink and we drink.
A man lives in the house he plays with the snakes, he writes.
He writes when it darkens to Deutschland:
Oh, your golden hair Margarete.
He writes and steps in front of his house and the stars glisten and he whistles his dogs to come.
He whistles his jews to appear:
Let a grave be dug in the earth.
He commands us play up for the dance.
Paul Celan 1944

This is going to be a small rant, because wtf. (cw: talk about the h*locaust)
To start off, I live in Germany and my town isn't really too "open" about the German history and stuff. This is why most old people are really bigoted (which i won't excuse btw, it just helps "understanding" this story).
Today I was just working in our garden and saw one of these old ladies talking to our neighbour (also an old white lady). They were talking about how bad the virus situation is and really seemed to emphasize that all of us shitty young people seem to endanger them by spreading the virus. The irony here is that both of these women just recently got out of quarantine after being infected with the virus because they met up with ten people, leading to another person probably dying, because her immune system is terribly weak (she has incurable cancer and tested positive).
In the same breath of saying that all teenagers are selfish bastards for meeting up with others (which really isn't true for my area, most people only meet up with one person or even no one), they also talked about the vaccinations.
oh boy.
They started insulting the politicians and saying that, if the government would ever push through a mandatory covid vaccine for everybody, they would rather die.
And here is the thing:
While they talked about this, they started comparing it with actual fucking dictatorship (and you probably know which dictatorship i mean). One of them said, and here is the absolutely disgusting part, "Yeah, soon they will tear apart our country and put the people that don't want to get poisened (get the vaccine) into camps. And on the entrance they'll write that the vaccination sets you free." (obviously translated from German to English)
To explain the last part: she used one of the phrases "work set you free", a horrible phrase written on the entrance of Auschwitz and used it for their own stupid point.
I did call over to them, pointing out that this comparison is so far from ok, but i don't think that they truly gave much of a shit.
Hearing that just really made me feel like throwing up. We visited a concentration camp in school. We saw and heard the horrible, horrible things that happened to jewish people, sinti, roma, homosexuals etc. for thing they could not control, just because others followed a disgusting ideology. And then there a these old cunts, that think they can compare their poor decisions with mass genocide. Sometimes I really wonder if people just choose to be ignorant or if they genuinely don't know what they are spitting out.

We must stand united against hatred, prejudice and intolerance. Humanity owes it to each victim that it never happens again. We cannot change history, but history can change us. We must never forget.

,קבוצת פנסיונרים ילידי הארץ יוצאים למסע שורשים בפולין. אף לא אחד מהם ניצול שואה במישרין. הוריהם הספיקו לעזוב את אירופה לפני השתלטות הנאצים, כדי לממש את הציונות. כולם גדלו בלי סבא וסבתא שנשארו "שם". עבור כולם, מראות האימים של השואה הם חלק מהילדות האישית והציבורית. ברובד הפרטי נשמרה השתיקה לאורך השנים, ברובד הציבורי תועלו סיפורי הזוועות, שנשמעו בחדרי-חדרים לעיצוב טקסי המדינה שבדרך, המדינה שבנו בגופם. עכשיו, כשהילדים  כמעט     "מסודרים" והם בעצמם כבר סבים וסבתות, הם מתארגנים כקבוצה ויוצאים ל"שם". את המסע ל"שם"   מוביל יעקב גוטרמן, מאייר, אמן וקיבוצניק, בעצמו יוצא שואה. את הטיול  מכנים לעיתים "קוקטייל מחנות", בספרי התיירות מתייגים אותו כ"פולין ההיסטורית" ומשרדי התיירות בישראל משווקים אותו כ"פולין היהודית". את הקבוצה מדריך יעקב גוטרמן, אמן ומורה לספרות, חבר קבוץ העוגן, שכילד, בזמן המלחמה, הסתתר בוורשה וברחבי פולין בזהות שאולה. יעקב מוליך את הקבוצה דרך מראות שעליהן חונכו: מקורות הזיכרון שלהם שאובים מתמונות, סרטי יום השואה, ספרים שקראו וסיפורים ששמעו מקרובי משפחה, שהצליחו לשרוד את התופת והעזו לשבור את מחסום השתיקה. בפולין נשארו רק מסמנים; מראי מקום, שאריות בניינים משומרים ומשוחזרים, מצבות משופצות ואנדרטאות במגוון סגנונות. מפת פולין המודרנית מלאה בנקודות ציון לזכר העבר, המשמשות בהווה כר נרחב לפעילות הנצחה טקסית ופולחנית. אל נקודות ציון מתרכזים עולי רגל מרחבי העולם, כבר לא בהכרח יהודים וישראלים. כל עם וסגנון ההנצחה שלו. השם "ה "כאב מדומה" לקוח מציטוט מסדרת הטלוויזיה "פו-לן-יה", שבה צופים חברי הקבוצה במהלך הנסיעה באוטובוס. במהלך הסדרה מדמה היסטוריון יהודי ממוצא פולני את היחס הבעייתי השורר בין פולין של היום לעם היהודי לתחושת הכאב המדומה של נכה קטוע איבר שמקום שבו נגדע הגוף. יחס שכזה אכן חווים  חברי הקבוצה; פולין של העבר היא חלק ממה שהם, מעברם האישי והלאומי. בפולין של היום, מלאה בסימני העבר, המסע הוא ניסיון למלא בתוכן ממשי את מסגרות ההתייחסות שאיתן באו למסע, את אמונותיהם, ציפיותיהם ונסיבות חייהם האישיות שקדמו למסע הזיכרון. בסרט משולבים יצירות ספרתיות ומוסיקאליות מהעבר ומההווה של תרבות פולין ומהתייחסויות של יוצרים יהודים לשואה. השאלה- האם יש מקום ואפשרות להתייחס ל"שואה" בכלים אומנותיים- נדחקת מול ההכרח ליצור.

Stop censoring the holocaust. This isn’t some tv show where you can look away and still learn the lessons it has to teach somewhere else. This is the worst event in modern history. If you do not learn about it, you will never learn from it.

Irena Stanisława Sendler
When the Nazis rounded up half a million Polish Jewish children to be gassed, a nurse and humanitarian, Irene Sendler managed to save the lives of hundreds of Jewish children by smuggling them out and placed them in homes and orphanages under different identities.
Even after she was caught and tortured, she managed to escape. When the war was over, she dug up jars that contained papers of the true identities of the adopted children and reunited them with their families.
She was awarded the Order of the White Eagle, a polish award for her spectacular deed.

30 Day Movie Challenge Day 8: A movie that makes me sad - The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas (2008)
I'm crying as I'm writing this blog. I seriously need some tissue.
I admit that I’m a sensitive person and I easily cry when watching certain movies and The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas was one of them. Bruno, the German boy, and Shmuel, the imprisoned Jewish boy, didn’t allow their racial and religious differences come between them and they formed a strong friendship.
The Holocaust was responsible for the death of over six million Jews whose only crime was being a different race. Other groups of people such as Jehovah’s Witnesses, Black Germans, the Roma, Soviet civilians, and Poles were also victims of this evil atrocity committed by Nazi Germany.
The principal message of this film is heart-warming but horrific at the same time. The story shows that even in the worst cases of prejudice and discrimination, people can still find the best in each other and we should never let our ignorance stop us from treating every single person with respect and kindness. We are all equal in the eyes of God. 
God created one race: the human race. Man was the one who created racism. We should have compassion for one another.

goyim... y’all gotta stop with this... like... what the fuck??? this isn’t a lil tiktok trend. also using “locked out of heaven” is an extremely inappropriate song choice as there is no jewish heaven. STOP. oh, and while we’re at it, stop comparing the holocaust to other genocides/tragedies. been seeing that too.

reminder that y’all need to stop comparing things to the holocaust.
the reason why i’m saying this is because i’m sick of seeing posts that say that the genocide happening in China right now has passed the number of deaths that were caused by the Holocaust. Not only is this statement falls considering the fact that we still don’t know the death toll of the muslim genocide OR the Holocaust, it’s also just generally disrespectful to use jewish peoples historical trauma in the name of spreading awareness.
I know that most of the people that are doing this are genuinely trying to help, but comparing two tragic events to make one seem like it’s more serious than the other doesn’t help anybody.
Do better
