Turkish Students Arrested for Nazi Salute at Polish Nazi Camp Site

By: JTA

Two students from Turkey were arrested in Poland for using a Nazi salute on a group of Israeli students visiting the Majdanek concentration camp.

The students made the Nazi salute and said “Heil Hitler” when they met a group of students from Israel according to Turkey’s Today’s Zaman newspaper. The Israeli group filed an official complaint, leading to the detention of the two Turkish students.

The students said that the action was a joke, but if they are found guilty of the charges of promoting fascist propaganda, they could face up to three years in prison.

    My wife and I have Israel on our prayers list everynight. I support the funds for Bibles for Israel every month as I can. Israel is Gods chosen nation and always will be. That is why other nations hate Israel because they are jealous of Israel and want to be apart of God but will not admit it.

  2. I am very sorry for this incident.
    Dear author please use the correct name for these camps. Not “Polish Nazi Camps” but “Nazi German camps in occupied by Nazis Poland”. These camps were designed, constructed and run by Nazi Germany and used to exterminate millions of Poles (not Jews) alongside Polish Jews, as well as Jews transported by the Nazis from across Europe.

    A bit of history from the official website of the Museum of Auschwitz
    Auschwitz Concentration Camp was set up for Poles, and Poles were the first political prisoners there. The number of prisoners grew steadily as a result of the constant arrival of new transports. In 1940, nearly 8 thousand people were registered in the camp. Almost all of them were Poles. There were also small numbers of Jews and Germans in the camp. At that time, the latter usually held supervisory functions as capos and block supervisors.
    In 1941, over 26 thousand people were registered in Auschwitz (about 15 thousand Poles, 10 thousand Soviet POWs, and more than 1 thousand Jews).
    As a result of the inclusion of Auschwitz in the process of the mass extermination of the Jews, the number of deportees began to soar. About 197 thousand Jews were deported there in 1942, about 270 thousand the following year, and over 600 thousand in 1944, for a total of almost 1.1 million. Among them, about 200 thousand people were selected as capable of labor and registered as prisoners in the camp.
    In this same period, from 1942 to 1944, about 160 thousand Poles, Gypsies, Byelorussians, Ukrainians, French, and others were registered as prisoners and given numbers. There were also more than 10 thousand people, mostly Poles, Soviet POWs, and Gypsies, not entered in the camp records or given numbers.
    The mass deportation of Jews to Auschwitz that began in 1942 radically changed the makeup of the prisoner population. After three months of deportation, in mid-1942, Jews already made up the most numerous ethnic group, and their share of the population rose steadily from about 46% in June 1942 to about 68% at the peak of the camp’s population, in August 1944. A total of about 400 thousand prisoners were registered: 195 thousand non-Jews and 205 thousand Jews.
    The number of victims:  
    Jews  1.1 million
    Poles   140-150 thousand
    Gypsies   23 thousand
    Soviet POWs 1  5 thousand
    Others   25 thousand
    Total
    Approx. 1.3 million

  7. Nissan Ben-Avraham , please note that the article you are refering to states that most of the acts of violence was provoked by Soviets or Soviet-dependent government. And please remember, that history of Jews in Poland has started almost 1 thousand years ago. Most of the time the releatins between our nations were quite good and Poland was a refuge for Jews for ages. I do not deny that there were acts of violence, but in my opinion it would be much better to focus on the positive aspects of history between our nations. This is the basis for mutual understanding. Modern Poles usually do not know how big impact on Polish culture had the Jewish community. And it seems that most of Jews has forgotten what Moses Isserles has sad: "if God has not given Jews Poland as a shelter, the fate of Jewish people would be really unbearable" (the citation may be not precise).

  8. Yechiel Baum says:

    why were the Turks there to begin with? don't they know about the Turkish holocausts of the Jews, Armenians, Kurds? Is this a big joke to the Turks? They must be low life peasants. No wonder why the Greeks hate them too.
