I want to present an interesting article that comes from the Telegraph online news service out of the United Kingdom, at blogs.telegraph.co.uk, written by Tom Chivers. It is entitled: "Dresden Deserves To Be Remembered", and as the title states, even after 68 years we must always remember the poor victims of that horrible genocidal murder. Here is that article, and I do have my own thoughts and comments to follow:
Dresden deserves to be remembered
NTS Notes: One major glaring error in this article is where the author states that between 22,000 and 25,000 people died in this tragedy... The fact is that he is off by a factor of nearly 20x... Modern research has uncovered the fact that by that time of the second World War, the city of Dresden was swelled by some 1 million refugees that were fleeing the marching Soviet troops. Most of these refugees were massacred during the fire bombing itself!
It is also shocking that our so called "History books" continue to promote the leaders of our nations during World War II as great men... But the facts are coming out now that both Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Winston Churchill were mad men that allowed the extermination of innocent civilians in this attack on Dresden, as well as the fire bombings of other major German cities including Hamburg, and Berlin....
Yes, 68 years later, and there still has been no justice for the victims of this, a true "Holocaust". It is therefore important that Dresden remain in the forefront for the pursuit of truth about that period of history. The innocents deserve that much...
More to come
