From time immemorial, however, the Jews have known better than any others how falsehood and calumny can be exploited... One of the greatest thinkers that mankind has produced has branded the Jews for all time with a statement which is profoundly and exactly true. Schopenhauer called the Jew "The Great Master of Lies". Those who do not realize the truth of that statement, or do not wish to believe it, will never be able to lend a hand in helping Truth to prevail. -- Adolf HitlerAbe Foxman, National Director of the Anti-Defamation League, recently published an op-ed regarding the Wannsee Conference, the alleged 'infamous meeting where the Nazis formally adopted the "Final Solution" and put it into practice as state policy.' Serious scholars have raised all sorts of issues with the mainstream, kosher approved version of this historical event, but let's hear Abe out. He writes:
As the national director of the Anti-Defamation League, I have articulated on many an occasion and have initiated many programs on the basis of the idea that the Holocaust should teach us profound lessons about hate in general. ADL has a variety of programs, for the FBI, the CIA, local law enforcement, teachers and students that embody these messages about what we need to learn about the horrors that took place in Europe before and during World War II.Hmmm... sounds like the typical narrative I've grown up with and learned about in school. You know, evil Nazis; poor, persecuted Jews; gas chambers and death camps.
As we commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Wannsee Conference, that infamous meeting where the Nazis formally adopted the "Final Solution" and put it into practice as state policy, however, it is a moment to focus on what was unique about the Holocaust amid the other atrocities and genocides of the modern era.
Wannsee, convened by SS leader Reinhard Heydrich on January 20, 1942 in an affluent Berlin suburb, was all about a modern state in one of the most civilized nations on earth committing itself to the systematic destruction of another people. [...]
The Jews of Europe were not involved in any war against the Germans. They were unarmed civilians who lived in countries on both sides of the conflict but none of that mattered.
I came across some interesting pieces of information which challenge Abe's version of not only the Wannsee Conference, but the entire historical narrative of what happened in World War II. Maybe he has an explanation for me?

As J.B Campbell explained in his fine article titled, Behind the Holocaust: What was Hitler's Unforgivable Sin?, "Hitler never attempted to destroy Judaism but rather to isolate it and perhaps remove its adherents from Europe." Upon closer inspection, J.B.'s concise summation of Hitler's intentions in regards to the "Jewish Problem" in Europe make a lot of sense. I'm sure Abe disagrees, and would be happy to explain why, right Abe?
