Continuation of this theme

-----------------------

64 years ago, at the end of January 1945, 'Das Konzentrationen Lager Auschwitz-Birkenau' was abandoned by retreating SS-troops and few days later was taken care off by Red Army.
Certain chapter of human history has ended that day.

-------------------------------

In the darkest era of human history, one nation of the great world's achievers, decided to choose the leadership of a man who openly declared a wiping of certain human race from the surface of the planet.
Incredible strength of that nation was given to that man, who started to realize his goals as promised with great efficiency and precision his nation is well known for.
He has chosen to murder the people who in no any way possible could defend themselves.
He has chosen the people responsible for half of the world's greatest achievements in science, medicine, art, music, film, economy, literature, physics, philosophy…
He has chosen the people without whom - quite possibly - that great nation in the middle of Europe wouldn't even have that strength and power of deciding the future of humanity.
He had chosen the people, who accomplished the greatest of human inventions, except: They never had to their disposal - the government, the army, and generals, and machine of war, and weapons, and administration of defense (read: attack), and ministries of war propaganda - which are absolutely necessary if you need to "defend" yourself, or better yet: If you plan to destroy the world, just because… (it is also called: A Defense… What else ?).
He had chosen the people who had no country, no capital city, no even a flag, no parliament, no national holidays to celebrate with the parades of strength and love to show off for their beloved leaders… The glorious parades - mind you… With the metallic clanks of the tank caterpillars' parades....The real parades… The parades with the millions of boots stomping in the thundering unisono onto the pavements of the street...

His goal was to eliminate he people so meek in their characters, that they let their executioners to be hurled in to the endless train like herds of cattle and delivered to dozens of the extermination camps.
Day and night those cargo trains were crossing the entire, highly civilized Europe and the rest of the world stood by and did NOTHING to stop it.
The slaughtering finally ended ONLY because the war has finally ended. Not a day before.

Thousands of battlefields and highly celebrated victories, and campaigns, and maneuvers and not even one to liberate a single concentration camp with tens of thousands of human skeletons waiting for salvation.
They were "liberated" because the Nazis retreated in panic a day before...
Millions of soldiers died defending or attacking most idiotic, bizarre places: Hills, mountains, river crossings, deserts, bridges, towns and villages without ANY military meaning (ambitions of the glorious leaders, eh?), but not to salve the humanity of the people who NEVER, EVER in the history of human civilization did ANYTHING to be punished for.

-----------------------------------

Today…
There are people with the desire to do it AGAIN !
And they declare it openly, in front of millions of their loyal followers and in front of the network of microphones and TV cameras, and I have never ever heard one STRONG condemnations of their actions from the BIG and POWERFUL of our world.
They are just shrugging their shoulders and (like sixty years ago), pretending that there is nothing to be worry about.
