Oliver Stone Wants To Put Hitler Into 'Context' Because Jewish Dominated Media Made Holocaust America's Focus

Lets start with NewsBusters which reports an interview Oliver Stone gave to Sunday Times stating his belief that America's focus on the Jewish massacre was a product of the "Jewish domination of the media" and his new Showtime series will attempt to put views of Hitler into "context."

Director Oliver Stone belittled the Holocaust during a shocking interview with the Sunday Times today, claiming that America's focus on the Jewish massacre was a product of the "Jewish domination of the media." The director also defended Hitler and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and railed against the "powerful lobby" of Jews in America.

Stone said that his upcoming Showtime documentary series "Secret History of America," seeks to put Hitler and Communist dictator Joseph Stalin "in context."

Stone wishes to put the slaughter of millions upon millions, under the command of Adolph Hitler, into context and believes that Hitler was somehow misunderstood, because of the Jewish dominated media, and those misunderstand souls simply need to walk in Hitler's shows to understand the man better.

Where do we start?

I choose to start with the misconception of Stone's that the horrors of the Holocaust were highlighted, and "focused" on by the Jewish dominated media.

I choose to start with General Dwight Eisenhower after the United States Army’s 89th Infantry Division and the 4th Armored Division captured the Ohrdruf concentration camp outside the town of Gotha in south central Germany.

Ohrdruf was where they held over 11,000 prisoners on their way to the gas chambers and crematoria at Buchenwald.

From the Dwight Eisenhower memorial commission:

General Eisenhower understood that many people would be unable to comprehend the full scope of this horror. He also understood that any human deeds that were so utterly evil might eventually be challenged or even denied as being literally unbelievable. For these reasons he ordered that all the civilian news media and military combat camera units be required to visit the camps and record their observations in print, pictures and film. As he explained to General Marshall, “I made the visit deliberately, in order to be in a position to give first-hand evidence of these things if ever, in the future, there develops a tendency to charge these allegations merely to ‘propaganda.’”

General Dwight Eisenhower could have been speaking directly about people like Oliver Stone.

So began the media coverage. So much for the focus being created by Jewish dominated media. The atrocities alone gave focus. No one needed to create a focus, the evidence, the bodies, the photos and the first hand accounts gave the world a reason to remember and to document those memories so that people like Oliver Stone and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, president of Iran (known Holocaust denier) could not create their own narrative and could not rewrite history.

Moving along to Stone's assertion that Hitler himself needs to be put into "context."

In 2006, 50 million documents were released from Hitler's secret archives, documenting the horror and highlighting the victims of that horror.

CBS reported at the time:

But most of the names here are of unknown people. While the Nazis did not write down the names of those executed in the gas chambers at places like Auschwitz, they did keep detailed records of millions of others who died in the camps. Their names are listed in notebooks labeled “Totenbuch,” which means “death book.” The names are written here, single-spaced, in meticulous handwriting.

"Here we see the cause of death: executed. And you can see, every two minutes they shot one prisoner," Jost explains.

"So they shot a prisoner every two minutes for a little over an hour and a half?" Pelley asks.

"Yes. Now look at the date: it’s the 20th of April. That was Adolf Hitler’s birthday. And this was a birthday present, a gift for the Führer. That’s the bureaucracy of the devil," Jost says.

The time line of the events leading to the Holocaust spans from 1933, when the Nazi party takes power in Germany and Adolf Hitler becomes chancellor, or prime minister of Germany to 1945 when Adolph Hitler committed suicide in his Berlin bunker, not only show Hitler's determination to rid the world of Jewish people, but shows Hitler sanctioned experimentation on human beings, including but not limited to twins, children and the disabled.

Freezing / Hypothermia experiments conducted by Dr. Sigmund Rascher at Birkenau, Dachau and Auschwitz . Dr. Rascher reported directly to Himmler. Dr. Rascher publicized the results of his freezing experiments at the 1942 medical conference entitled "Medical Problems Arising from Sea and Winter".

The icy vat method proved to be the fastest way to drop the body temperature. The selections were made of young healthly Jews or Russians. They were usually stripped naked and prepared for the experiment. A insulated probe which measured the drop in the body temperature was inserted into the rectum. The probe was held in place by a expandable metal ring which was adjusted to open inside the rectum to hold the probe firmly in place. The victim was then placed in the vat of cold water and started to freeze. It was learned that most victims lost consciousness and died when the body temperature dropped to 25 C.

The resuscitation or warming experiments followed, experimenting the thawing using Sun Lamps, Internal Irrigation, Hot Bath, and Warming by Body Heat, which consisted of the use women to warm the frozen men and forcing them to copulate with the frozen victims.

Genetic experiments and finally experiments on twins, the descriptions of those experiments as sickening as the rest.

More on Medical experiments conducted by Nazis, found here.

Many suffered in those experiments, and it is true that Hitler did not only target Jews but they were the largest group targeted by the Nazis with their "Final Solution" ... genocide of the entire race.

"First They Came for the Jews"

First they came for the Jews and I did not speak out
because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the Communists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for me
and there was no one left
to speak out for me.

Rewrite it, try to change the narrative if you will, but photographs taken at the time, documentation that exists and first hand accounts that were given by survivors and those that liberated them cannot be erased from history and nor should they.

Put that into "context" Mr. Stone.
