I was wondering why the 60th anniversary of the
liberation of Auschwitz is generating so much more
media attention. Far more hoopla and fanfare than the
50th anniversary. How about you? Usually the first,
tenth, twentieth, twenty-fifth, fiftieth,
seventy-fifth and one-hundredth anniversary dates are
given special emphasis. Then it hit me. The symbolic
number six. The magical, mystical, Cabalistic number
six! That's the key.
I recently read a Holocaust Revisionism Frequently
Asked Questions(1) document compiled by historian
Carlos Whitlock Porter. Thanks to Mr. Whitlock, it all
suddenly became very clear. It states:
12) What is the origin of the six million figure?
The six million figure is not based on any body count,
records, or census. The number came into use during
the war in Zionist propaganda and appears to have
symbolic numerological significance. When the digits
in six million are summed they add up to six. Six
million is six times ten raised to the sixth power. In
numerology the number six is considered 'perfect'. Six
is the number of days God used to create the earth in
the story of creation in the book of Genesis. It holds
a special significance for the Jews who use the
hexagram as their symbol. In the Holocaust itself, the
six million figure was used in propaganda emanating
from Zionist and Jewish organizations as early as
1941. Before the Russian Bolshevik revolution,
anti-Czarist propaganda generated by Jews used the six
million figure in describing the magnitude of the
plight of Russian Jews under the Czar. The chief rabbi
of Britain recently called for the re-examination of
the six million figure which he considered totally
arbitrary in nature.
Totally arbitrary, indeed.
When the digits in sixty are summed they add up to six
(6 + 0 = 6). Now you know why the 60th anniversary of
this non-event (to me) is generating so much more
media propaganda than the 50th. I wonder if the 66th
anniversary will receive even more?
Well, got to go now. I'm extremely tired. I've got a
very bad case of "Holocaust fatigue." How about you?
