‘Donald Trump Hitler-like’, Anne Frank’s step-sister says

This video from the USA says about itself:

Eva Schloss, step-sister of Anne Frank tells her story in Northridge, California.

On January 23 2013 Eva Schloss, step-sister of Anne Frank was invited by the Chabad group at California State University Northridge to tell her story of survival in the early years of occupation in Amsterdam and how the Diary of Anne Frank came to be published. This one time event was presented to “filled to capacity” auditorium of both young and old. A rare event for those who would rather learn from history, then repeat it.

From daily The Independent in Britain:

Anne Frank‘s step-sister says Donald Trump is ‘acting like Hitler’

A win for the Republican frontrunner in the presidential elections would be a ‘complete disaster’, Eva Schloss says

Anne Frank’s step-sister has said Donald Trump is “acting like another Hitler by inciting racism”.

Eva Schloss – whose mother married the father of the German born diarist who became one of the most well known Jewish victims of the Nazi regime – spoke out about the would-be Republican presidential candidate in an interview to mark Holocaust Memorial Day.

“If Donald Trump became the next president of the US it would be a complete disaster,” Ms Schloss told Newsweek.

Criticising the current British, American and Canadian refugee policies, Ms Schloss said: “Fewer people would have died in the Holocaust if the world had accepted more Jewish refugees.”

It is “even harder for today’s Syrian refugees,” Ms Schloss said, because they have “a very different culture”.

As “assimilated” European Jews, Schloss’ family was still “treated as if we had come from the moon” when they arrived in the Netherlands in 1938, she said.

“I was shocked that I wasn’t accepted like an ordinary person,” she said.

Her family fled Austria in 1938 after it was annexed by Nazi Germany, settling in Amsterdam where they knew the Franks.

Both families went into hiding in 1942, but were betrayed and taken to concentration camps two years later. While Ms Schloss was liberated from Auschwitz in 1945, Anne Frank died of typhoid weeks before her camp, Bergen-Belsen, was reached by Allied troops.

Anne Frank’s father, Otto, married Ms Schloss’ mother, Fritzi, after the war. …

Anne Frank and her family would have lived, Ms Schloss suggested, had the US accepted Otto Frank’s visa applications in 1940.

“He tried everything to save his family from the Holocaust…but his request was rejected,” she said.

“America didn’t want to take any more refugees.

“The situation today is worse than it was under Hitler because at that time all the Allies – the US, Russia and Britain – worked together to combat the terrible threat of Nazism. If we don’t work together, the world will never be able to resolve the threats it faces today.”

‘Don’t Stand By’ is the theme of this year’s Holocaust Memorial Day, but “more people than ever are being bystanders”, said Ms Schloss.

“We haven’t really learnt anything—I’m depressed by the current situation.”

She is not the first to compare Donald Trump to Hitler.

Following the presidential nominee’s December call for a ban on Muslims entering the US, Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter accused Mr Trump of taking “a page from the play book of Hitler”, saying his comments “engender a level of fear mongering that we have not seen literally since the 1930s and 1940s”.

Former New Jersey Republican Governor Christine Todd Whitman also told CNN that Mr Trump‘s remarks were “the kind of rhetoric that allowed Hitler to move forward.”

“You have people who were scared the economy was bad – they want someone to blame,” she said.

The Philadelphia Daily News responded to Mr Trump‘s call for a ban with a cover that punned on Führer, the German word for ‘leader’ and Hitler’s title.

In November, fellow presidential nominee Jeb Bush’s advisor Max Boot also called Mr Trump “a fascist” on Twitter.

From CNN:

“I remember how upset the world was when the Berlin Wall was erected in 1961,” Schloss said. “And now everybody is building walls again to keep people out. It’s absurd.”

Donald Trump is not only infamous for attacking, eg, Muslims and African Americans. He also wants to deport Mexicans and Mexican Americans, whom he smeared as ‘rapists’. Ironically, about a hundred years ago, Jews who had to deal with anti-Semitism in Europe, jokingly called themselves ‘Mexicaner’ (Mexicans); derived from Yiddish language ‘’s meg sie kaner‘, nobody likes them.

DESPITE APPEALS FROM O’REILLY, TRUMP VOWS NOT TO APPEAR AT DEBATE TONIGHT “Bill O’Reilly wants Donald Trump to be the bigger man in his ongoing feud with Fox News, but Trump is promising an ‘eye for an eye’ instead.” Take a look at why Trump’s latest move is another example of him “hacking the media,” and here’s what the Republican debate will look like without him.

ARIANNA HUFFINGTON: ‘CALLING ALL TEENS WHO DON’T WANT TO GROW UP IN DONALD TRUMP’S AMERICA’ “We’re launching a contest for teens to tell us: why don’t you want Donald Trump to be president? Because as we approach this election, it’s more important than ever to hear the voices of young people who will live with its consequences, even if they aren’t able to cast a vote.” [HuffPost]

Obama invokes Hitler’s rise in stark warning to America. ‘That’s what happened in Germany in the 1930s’: here.

TRUMP JR.: DEMS ARE NAZIS Donald Trump Jr. said Thursday that the platform of the Democratic National Committee is “awfully similar” to that of the Nazi Party. He made no mention of his father’s supporters who identify as white supremacists, white nationalists and neo-Nazis. [HuffPost]

    DOZENS of elderly Holocaust survivors lit candles at Auschwitz yesterday on the 71st anniversary of the nazi death camp’s liberation by the Soviet Red Army.

    Some survivors wore sashes or scarves that recalled the striped pyjama-style clothing that prisoners were forced to wear.

    They placed candles and wreaths at a wall where many prisoners were shot dead before joining the presidents of Poland and Croatia for official ceremonies.

    The nazis killed more than a million people at Auschwitz, most of them Jews but also Roma and many others.

    “We must be honest enough to admit that more than 70 years after the Shoah, anti-semitism is still alive in our ‘civilised’ European Union,” said EU foreign affairs head Federica Mogherini.

    Germany’s Bundestag parliament gathered to hear Austrian-born writer Ruth Klueger tell of her experience as a camp inmate and slave labourer.

    She contrasted the immediate postwar denial of nazi crimes in Germany with attitudes in the country now.



  2. In fact, speaking as a post-Holocaust Jew, there is a little known, but much closer comparison. I was also a refugee among the Hungarians after the revolution of 1956, and it seems to me, oddly enough, that my experience is a closer to current events than the Holocaust, though being Jewish was central to it.

    Now almost,and regrettably forgotten, the Hungarian Revolution of 1956 was led by an inspired Worker’s Council, though the former fascists and pogromists appeared at its edge and mainly former Arrow Cross [Hungarian nazi] dudes [were] prominent in refugee camps. You had to learn early to fight with knives, run like hell, and endure praise for the murderous “freedom fighters”.

    We escaped late, and I experienced genuine pogroms among refugees, and all that which the poor refugees suffer, including rapes. murder, and doo-doo stalns on bathroom walls.

    My heart breaks.
