Lessons of the Holocaust
GREENSBORO — […]
[Stefanie] Seltzer, 69, is president of the World Federation of the Jewish Child Survivors of the Holocaust, and she has been telling her story worldwide for more than 28 years. She was in town this week from Philadelphia, visiting family, when she was asked to speak at the library.
“It’s not a fun thing, but it’s an important thing for our children to hear,” said Teqita Williamson, who organized the event. “Unfortunately, time marches on and our friends are leaving, and when they’re gone, the story is gone with them.”
Though many memories have faded with time, Seltzer remembers:
• Seeing Jews executed after being forced to expose themselves to German police who were looking for circumcised men.

Webmaster note: It’s a wonder the Nazis had any Jews left to fill the gas chambers, considering this mode of execution. Can you imagine how many German soldiers would have jumped at the chance to examine the private parts of other men? The only unbelievable aspect of this story is that it seems to be so poorly known outside of eyewitness Seltzer’s account. What kind of a world do we live in where hundreds, thousands, or hundreds of thousands of men can be gunned down in the street with their pants around their ankles, and only one woman is brave enough to come forward with the truth?
