If Journalism is about Collecting FACTS, History is about TRUTH !
Alfred Hitchcock, in a whole other genre (well maybe not.)
A film the British Government deemed too grisly for release after World War II – has received its public debut on British television. Fifteen minutes of the black-and- white film, which was shot by the armed forces after the war.
Approximately 11 Million People were killed in the Nazi Concentration Camps out of which 6 Million were Jews. Others Consisted of Gypsies, Political Activists, Intellectuals, Homosexuals, Mentally ill psychiatric patients as well as Pysically disabled, POW (Prisoners of War: When deemed inferior), and even Blacks. Many of whome were also subject to so called “Scientific” experiences by Nazi Doctors.
The Term Concentration Camp existed before the Nazi’s Final Solution, and literally refers to an Open Air area where a group of people are gathered and kept in custody. However it has become intimately associated to the Nazi Extermination Camps eversince the knowledge of the gruesome Reality of the Holocaust. Many Neo Nazi Revisionists and Holocaust deniers having failed in their attempts to prove that the Holocaust never existed try to minimize the dark reality of the Holocaust by refering to the term Concentration Camp and thus banalizing the fact that the Nazi Camps were in reality “Extermination Camps”.
