Holocaust records

Maybe this will help shut off some of the holocaust deniers who have used 
this list to spread their Neo Nazi propaganda, while calling themselves 

I wonder how that claim fits in with what HPB said... "Theosophists are all 
those engaged in the true service of Humanity without distinction of race, 
creed, sex, condition or organization"?

(excerpt from an e-mail letter circulated on the web last week)

This story was aired on Sunday, Dec. 17 (7PM ET/PT on CBS) on "60 MINUTES" 
about a long-secret German archive that houses a treasure trove of information 
on 17.5 million victims of the Holocaust. The archive, located in the German 
town of Bad Arolsen, is massive (there are 16 miles of shelving containing 50 
million pages of documents) and until recently, was off-limits to the public. 
But after the German government agreed earlier this year to open the archives, 
CBS News' Scott Pelley traveled there with three Jewish survivors who were able 
to see their own Holocaust records. It's an incredibly moving piece, all the 
more poignant in the wake of last week's meeting of Holocaust deniers in Iran. 
We're trying to get word out about the story to people who have a special 
interest in this subject.

It is now more than 60 years after the Second World War in Europe ended. This 
e-mail is being sent as a memorial chain, in memory of the six million Jews, 
20 million Russians, 10 million Christians and 1,900 Catholic priests who were 
murdered, massacred, raped, burned, starved and humiliated with the German 
and Russia peoples looking the other way!

Now, more than ever, with Iran, among others, claiming the Holocaust to be "a 
myth," it is imperative to make sure the world never forgets.
