Chat with Holocaust Survivor Toivi Blatt

"THE SOBIBOR REVOLT" > Page 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

Host Lisa_Katz says:

Toivi, want is the best way for us to deal with Anti-Semitism we meet today whether it be in a chat room or at work or wherever?

Host Toivi says:

I think the Pope last week said it best; he said we should all feel guilty (meaning Europe) that they allowed it to happen to the Jews.

Susan says:

when people spoke out (rare) Jews were treated better, like Danish Jews

BarbO says:

Why do you suppose the Pope excluded Americans in that statement?

Host Toivi says:

The Danes considered the Jews as Danes rather than Jews

Susan says:

I heard Danish Jews were treated relatively well by the nazis because their king spoke out

ZHL says:

There was a movie about the Danes and how they helped

Susan says:

is it true or rumor, that the Danish king wore a yellow armband like the Jews had to wear?

Host Lisa_Katz says:

Can you get BarbO's question, Toivi - why did the Pope exclude Americans from his statement.

Host Toivi says:

The crimes were going on in Europe.

Host Lisa_Katz says:

yes, that makes sense. they were closer to it and could have done more to stop it.

MSS8 says:

ditto

Host Toivi says:

Thank you, Lisa.

Host Lisa_Katz says:

I wanted to know how you think we should deal with anti-Semitism we encounter today in our lives.

Host Toivi says:

Be involved in groups that fight against prejudice, not only against Jews.

Host Lisa_Katz says:

very nice. do you have names of some groups in particular. Anti-Defamation League for instance.

BarbO says:

That sounds like very good advice.

ZHL says:

Toivi where you the one in the Movie that ran into the gas chamber area to get the general with the boots?

Host Toivi says:

No, I was luring the Nazis to place where they would be killed

Host Lisa_Katz says:

how did you lure them there?

Host Toivi says:

Watch the movie or read the book.

ZHL says:

they were supposed to have clothing for them

BarbO says:

lol

ZHL says:

It was really cool

Host Lisa_Katz says:

:-) I sure will do that!

Susan says:

according to the movie, playing on their greed and vanity

Host Toivi says:

The books are available on Amazon internet and other book stores. From the Ashes of Sobibor: A Survivor's report and Sobibor: The Forgotten Revolt, a research book.

MSS8 says:

Can the big lie happen again, or have we evolved enough to live the truth.

Host Toivi says:

We hope that it will never happen again. Remember the constitution is as good as the people in the country. Remember the black people were legal slaves and the Japanese Americans were interned during the war despite that their fathers and brothers fought for this country.

Kesem_HostJSingles says:

I think it can happen perhaps not to the Jews again but to another minority group look at the Kurds

Orin1 says:

the thing is it keeps happening. no one has shot milosovich. he is still in power

Host Toivi says:

And many others.

Orin1 says:

it is happening right now in kosovo

Susan says:

at least there's an international effort, even though they're not very successful

Case says:

yes it can and in many countries it is still very much a threat. But if we all try to be aware....I think it helps

Orin1 says:

to think something can't or won't happen again is delusional
