"Jew" Teaches Holocaustolatry at Catholic School

July 27, 2007

EDITOR’S NOTE: This program has the full support of Catholic officials, from the USCCB to the Pope. Auschwitz is supplanting Calvary with their assistance.

Fellowship gives teacher the chance to learn more about the Holocaust

“I want the kids to think about, ‘How can I make a difference? I can’t just be a bystander.’ ”

Teacher Kimberley Klein

For a seventh-grader, history can be boring.

There are dates to memorize, historical figures to remember and, sometimes, huge numbers to wrap your mind around.

Like this one — 6 million Jews died during the Holocaust.

But Kimberley Klein, a language arts teacher at Curé of Ars Catholic School in Leawood, teaches more than cold, hard facts.

“It’s not just a number,” she said. “It’s a person with a name, a person with a face.”

Klein was recently named an Alfred Lerner Fellow by the Jewish Foundation for the Righteous, an organization that provides financial assistance for elderly or needy people who helped Jews during the Holocaust.

The organization also shows educators how to better teach the Holocaust.

As an Alfred Lerner Fellow, Klein recently went to Columbia University in New York City for an intense academic seminar taught by Holocaust survivors and scholars.

Thirty-four educators from 12 states and two European countries — Croatia and Poland — participated in the program.

Even though she has several degrees, Klein said she’d never prepared so much for a course. Before she even set foot in New York, Klein had pored over 1,300 pages of assigned reading. But the most valuable information Klein gleaned from the program, she said, came from the accounts of Holocaust witnesses.

There was the German Jewish woman who said that as a girl, during the war, she couldn’t go to school because it was too dangerous. But a Catholic nun visited almost every day to continue teaching her, even though she was of a different faith.

And then there was the Holocaust survivor who said a Catholic priest saved her life. She still visits him once a year.

There were also countless farmers who hid Jews in barns or basements to save them from concentration camps.

“It’s very humbling to hear someone say ‘I appreciate what someone did for me,’ ” Klein said.

Klein was the first recipient of the Eduard Sonder Scholarship, which paid the program entrance fee. The scholarship was funded by two women whose grandfather, Eduard Sonder, died in the Holocaust. Sonder’s life insurance policy funds the scholarship.

Stanlee Stahl, JRF executive vice president, said Klein was chosen to receive the scholarship and become an Alfred Lerner Fellow because she was impressive on paper.

But, more than that, Stahl said, “there was a passion there that came through between the lines.”

Stahl said she was also surprised to find a teacher with such a thorough Holocaust unit in a Catholic school in a town with a relatively small Jewish population. She said most Alfred Lerner Fellows come from the East or West coasts, with only a handful of applicants from the Midwest.

Klein was nominated to be an Alfred Lerner Fellow by the Midwest Center for Holocaust Education. She serves on the center’s teaching cadre.

Klein says her passion isn’t just for history — it’s for using history to better the present and the future.

“I want the kids to think about, ‘How can I make a difference? I can’t just be a bystander,’ ” Klein said.

Klein’s students read the newspaper and do community service projects, and they do their own research into the Holocaust.

Klein also uses her Holocaust lesson to teach basic curriculum. For example, students are supposed to be able to identify persuasive writing in seventh grade. Klein’s students analyze WWII-era German propaganda and how it affected public opinion at the time. Klein said that helps her students to become independent thinkers.

Since events that happened half a century ago can sometimes be difficult for a 13-year-old to relate to, Klein has to sometimes get creative. For example, her students research fashions of the 1930s on the Internet, then they look at photos taken at concentration camps. Often, the children in those photos are wearing contemporary trends, just like students today.

“These kids were just like you and me,” Klein tells her students.

Klein’s methods appear to be working. She said some of her students are inspired to do extra volunteer work. Recently, two of them joined an organization that helps the people of Rwanda, who in 1994 suffered genocide not unlike the Holocaust.

For Klein, there is no better reward than seeing her students use their knowledge of the past to better the present.

“That’s when I get excited,” she said. “When a student teaches me something.”

neoBolshevik Warfare Taking Place in Catholic Classrooms

July 25, 2007

Courses include: “History of Jewish/Catholic Relations: From the Gospels Through Hitler.”

I have an idea for one, “Murderous Racial Supremacy: From the Pharisees Through Maimonides to Hitler, Founder of the Racial Supremacist State That Calls Itself ‘Israel’.”

Fontbonne offers semester on Judaism

EDUCATION

BY PAUL HACKBARTH, SPECIAL TO THE JEWISH LIGHT

For the first time in its history, Fontbonne University will offer a “dedicated semester” to studying Judaism with 14 new or previously taught courses this fall semester.

From “Judiasm and the Foundations of American Law” [????] to “History of Jewish/Catholic Relations: From the Gospels Through Hitler,” Fontbonne’s dedicated semester will include courses across several curricula for students interested in learning more about “Judaism and its Culture.”

Nancy Blattner, Fontbonne’s vice president and dean for academic affairs, said some of the courses have been taught on a regular basis before, such as the Hebrew Bible course.

“The courses run a range from business, communication, fine arts, both arts and music, government, history, religion, law and sociology,” Blattner said.

“We asked faculty to emphasize a topic in their area. For instance, the Middle East conflict class in communication is a debate class. It has been redirected for the focus on Judaism. At least half a dozen others have been created new for the semester upcoming,” she said.

Since Fontbonne is predominantly a Catholic school, choosing Judaism as the topic of its dedicated semester may seem atypical, but the school’s Judeo-Christian roots were the reason for Fontbonne’s pick.

“We were interested in looking at a way that Fontbonne could highlight and give emphasis that talks about our mission statement involving Judeo-Christian tradition,” said Blattner.

While Blattner said the campus community gives credence to the Christian part of that statement on a daily basis, the semester helps value the Jewish roots.

“Pope John Paul II talked about Jews as our elder brothers and sisters, and all Christian traditions derive from Jewish traditions,” she said …

In addition to the courses, throughout the semester, Jewish films will be shown in the evening, panels of rabbis will come to the Fontbonne campus for discussions from different perspectives, ranging from conservative Judaism to liberal approaches. Fontbonne will also celebrate the Jewish holidays during the fall semester.

Freshman will also be asked to read a novel The Chosen before their orientation in August. During orientation, the freshman will participate in discussion groups with faculty and staff to “talk about the themes in the novel, ask questions, show how they mark connections with the novel and there will also be an essay contest,” Blattner said. “They should understand this is the topic of the semester.”

The NeoEuropean Dark Age is Now

February 15, 2007

Judaic Inquisition, 2007

EDITOR’S NOTE: Failure to assent one’s will to the holy dogmas handed down by the High Priests of Holocaustolatry in Europe brings harsh penalties which one can be assured will grow much harsher unless people wake up and protest this madness.

Zundel jailed five years for Holocaust denial

Canadian PressPublished: Thursday, February 15, 2007

MANNHEIM, Germany – … Ernst Zundel was convicted of 14 counts of incitement Thursday for Holocaust denial and sentenced to the maximum five years in prison.

The 67-year-old, who was deported from Canada in 2005, was accused of years of anti-Semitic activities, including denying the Holocaust a crime in Germany in documents and on the Internet. Zundel and his supporters have argued that he is a peaceful campaigner denied his right to free speech.

Zundel was born in Germany in 1939. He came to Canada in 1958 and lived in Toronto and Montreal until 2001. Canadian officials rejected his attempts to obtain citizenship in 1966 and 1994.

He then moved to Tennessee, where he married … Ingrid Rimland, but was deported to Canada in 2003 for alleged immigration violations.

Upon arrival in Toronto, Zundel was arrested and held in detention until a judge ruled in March 2005 that his activities posed a threat to national and international security, and he was deported to Germany.

That decision was welcomed by Jewish … groups in Canada and elsewhere.

Zundel has been standing trial in Germany since November of last year …

… “You might as well argue that the sun rises in the west,” [prosecutor, Andreas] Grossmann said when asking that Zundel be given the maximum sentence. “But you cannot change that the Holocaust has been proven.”

Arguing that the sun rises in the west isn’t punishable by long prison terms, however. And neither is the denial of any matter of historical record or any dogma of any religion aside from Judaism and it’s “Jewish race” apotheosis dogmas in their Holocaust guise, in which case, such dogmas are held to be as undeniable as the laws of physics and enforced by state law.

Who is behind this holocaust denial legislation madness? The alchemist, Pat Buchanan would have you believe that it’s “the Germans” who are behind Germany’s holocaust denial laws. But that doesn’t coincide with reality.

Who has the audacity to lobby the Vatican to declare their own non-Catholic dogmas to Catholics? “The Germans”?

Pope hears Holocaust denial plea

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert asked Pope Benedict XVI on Wednesday to urge Christians to protest Holocaust denials, Israeli government officials said. During their meeting at the Vatican, Benedict told Olmert he would consider the request, which followed an Iranian conference questioning the Nazi genocide against the Jews. Benedict met with Olmert alone for 35 minutes and praised Israel’s restraint in Gaza, Israeli spokesman Jacob Galanti said. Olmert’s request that the pope denounce Holocaust denials in his next homily came one day after the Vatican issued a statement calling on people to remember the Nazi campaign of extermination.
