J. Schwarz: You and I are on the same page. The nazis carefully and systematically caused the deaths of millions of Jewish Europeans. It may have been 6 million or even more or perhaps less. However, high school and college history teachers allow their students to believe a majority of the deaths happened behind barbed wire fences, which you agreed is clearly not the case.

I realize some wealthier Jewish citizens managed to escape from central Europe by airplane or boat in the 1930's. I'm curious how many of the less prosperous managed to move east or southeast to areas where the nazis had less organized police powers. Then, how many Jewish people made the desperate trek back west in early 1945 to escape the massive red army in the vain hopes of reaching the allies. How many actually made it?

I believe I found my copy on amazon or alibris. Sruoga was a leading Lithuanian writer, but the Soviet govt. would not allow this to be published for many years. Took a long time before it was translated into English. But that was still before the end of the Soviet Union, when there was still no knowledge of Lithuania or interest in its literature over here. I've read a number of concentration camp memoirs, but this one is unique - dark and mordant.

You ought to apply those wonderful critical insights to Mr. Duff, the editor of that rag you're always quoting, Lawrence A. Dickerson. He's not even a vet. He's just another crazy truther.

I looked at his article "proving" that it was a missile that struck the Pentagon instead of a commercial airliner. What garbage!

My nephew was on duty near the Pentagon on 9-11-01 and the airliner which hit the Pentagon almost took the light bar off his patrol car. You people need to get your information from someplace besides Tehran.

Surely you're not as bad as all that, Dickerson.

My pappy taught me that people with big mouths who constantly flame others are in fact cowardly milque toasts who have a low self esteem and many failures in their lives.That's been true to form without exception.

Why is it so important for the OP to determine how many starved? Doe this guy want a head count? Does he think they had chicken with potatoes every night? The bottom line is most likely MORE than 6 million Jews were killed by the Nazis in various ways. Take a look at the pictures of the people in the liberated camps, you know the ones that weren't laying in piles with their bones sticking out or the other ones burned. They look like walking skeletons. Maybe the OP wants to tell us how wonderful the Nazis were that only 4 million starved while 2 million were gassed. You see it really doesn't matter how many were starved, shot, gassed, machine gunned, experimented upon, it doesn't matter in the slightest. They are all dead all 6 million of them, and 350,000 Germans, and hundreds of thousands of homo sexuals and gypsies. The Nazis were equal opportunity killers with a blatant disregard for life.

Pete says:

"For balance check out: "Other Losses: An Investigation into the Mass Deaths of German Prisoners at the Hands of the French and Americans after World War II" by James Bacquel, esp the latest edition with new info obtained from the opening of records within the former Soviet Union. Many will remember the firestorm it ignited with first published in `89. Don't know if it happened or not, but woe to us if it did. "

This is a thought provoking title, I've read it. I f you though t that the allies let their germans go home when the war ended, and only the soviets made a policy of cruel incarceration, then this book will put you on the right track.

I found a Spanish language edition of it on Amazon, R. Largess. English is best for me, though.

I'll keep looking.

Then your PAPPY should have told you to look in the mirror. Sounds like both you and your pappy are wanting.

Thanks for the reference, R. Largess. That's a title I haven't seen before.

I'm sure your pappy taught you well, Lawrence A. Dickerson. I can only wonder why you defend phonies and bigots with such unswerving devotion.

Where did you go so wrong?

You'll find a description by a concentration camp inmate of the forced marched westward (from near Gdansk) in 1945 in Balys Sruoga's "Forest of the Gods". This is not an easy book to locate.

I sure do John.My pappy taught me how to recognize them when I see them.

You know all about phonies, Lawrence A. Dickerson. I'll concede your expertise on that and SPAM.

In reply to an earlier post on Aug 7, 2012 7:03:18 PM PDT
You asked for first hand experiences or evaluations that don't exaggerate.So far no one has posted to your question.

In reply to an earlier post on Aug 7, 2012 7:01:02 PM PDT
Prove me wrong John.Provide that review because you review every book you have read and then some.A phony is just that no matter where they are.You can't escape from yourself.

Now you're being silly, Lawrence A. Dickerson.

It is admittedly a step up from SPAM though.

It's amazing that John M.Lane has a critique of:

Bloodlands: Europe Between Hitler and Stalin
Published in 2010 yet he doesn't have an Amazon review written up for it.This is an example of being a tag along at any price just to try to impress people.

His profile page quotes him as a philosopher and a statesman neither of which has any credibility.
