11 April: International Day to Remember the Liberation of the Prisoners of the Nazi Concentration Camps
A vid on the surviving buildings of Auschwitz I camp… yes, Virginia, it DID exist, and Williamson is spouting rubbish on it (he’s been convicted in court of Holocaust Denial)…
Click here for a three-minute vid in English on the Mauthausen Concentration Camp Memorial. The Holocaust Deniers are in full cry on the right… don’t listen to them! The beastliness of the Nazis was real… reflect on the fact that they killed more people than the Commies ever did, in only twelve years (with most of the killing concentrated in four short years, 1941-44). You could survive the GULag (and most prisoners did), but you didn’t have a prayer if you were sent to Auschwitz. Do ask the few surviving Carpatho-Russian Jews about that… they’ll tell you the truth (the Carpatho-Russian people lived in peace with their Jewish neighbours… the Nazis had to use Lithuanian, Galician, and Russian collaborators to round up the local Jews).
Pause a moment and keep a moment of vigil in respect for the innocent victims of the Nazis… and reflect on the fact that the contemporary rightwing glosses over this evil. NEVER AGAIN…
A Monument “Not Made by Hands”
The Russian title includes the word нерукотворному (nerukotvornomu: literally, “not made by hands”), which would bring to mind for any educated Russian (of whatever religious background) the word нерукотворные (nerukotvornye), which is the title of a famous Russian Orthodox icon type. The word “Chebarkul” on the base is the name of the locality where the meteorite fell. By the way, Governor Yurevich is the head of Makfa, a food processing company known mainly for pasta (Russian pasta? I shit you not… their website has some dynamite recipes).
Online voting to determine the five best ideas for a memorial to commemorate the fall of a meteorite in the Urals began on the official website of Chelyabinsk Oblast Governor Mikhail Yurevich. Sergei Yolkin takes a sardonic look at it all.
20 May 2013
On 25 April 2013, our beloved Cossack brother Nicholas Dubovsky died in a fatal car accident. Nicholas had just returned home from a trip to Russia. Nicholas was one of the very first supporters of the Cossack Congress in America; he did everything possible to see Cossacks united in America. The Kuban Cossack Host, and the Cossack Congress in America, lost one of its best Cossacks; we’ll dearly miss him. We ask that all Cossacks who can, please, attend Nicholas’ Pannikhida on 29 April at St Mary Church, 316 Cassville Road, Jackson, NJ 08527 at 18.00 and his funeral at 10.00 on 30 April.
