Toddler and other young ‘enemies’ of the state

1317302-medium

I have posted similar blogs like this before and I won’t apologize for that because it is important to understand how warped the Nazi ideology was.

They killed babies and children not by accident but deliberately, Children who often could not even walk yet were seen as enemies of the state.

The above picture is of Betty Jas , she was only 2 years old when she was murdered at Auschwitz-Birenkau on October 12, 1942.

Eva Kovach

Annie Dirnfeld age 2 was sadly deported to Auschwitz then murdered on July 5, 1944.

Alfred Schenkel

Alfred Schenkel gassed in Auschwitz on Apr. 15, 1944. Alfred perished 3 months before his 7th birthday.

What is most disturbing is many of those who send these kids to be gassed had children themselves, and yet to did not perceive their acts to be evil.

The 4 year old enemies of the state.

In this blog I will only show pictures of 4 year old children who were murdered by the Nazi regime. You can make up your own mind what you think about that. But before you do look at your own 4 year old child, or the child of a relative,neighbor or friend and try to determine how big an enemy this child would be.

4 YEARS OLD.

Micha Kalichowski was only 4 when he was sadly murdered in a town Bronogura, Poland in 1941 during the Holocaust.

The pictures of these 4 children is disturbing enough, what is more disturbing is that I could have posted thousands of pictures of 4 year old children who suffered the same fate.

I am going to keep this one simple. This is a blog about babies killed while they were still in diapers. What danger did they pose?

These are picture of babies killed by the Nazi regime. I don’t have a name for the baby above, only the age. 1.

The unwanted Children

004as

There is a misconception that the Nazi’s only killed Jewish and Gypsy Children. In fact they killed their own Children too.

Any child with a physical or mental disability risked being subjected to the T4 or 14f13 programs, and the disabilities did not have to be severe, the slightest disability was seen as an impurity which would contaminate the Aryan race.

Heinrich Sund

Heinrich was described of being diagnosed with microcephaly (abnormal smallness of the head associated with incomplete brain development) then sadly killed by being overdosed with a morphine drug on August 17, 1943 at age 8 years.

Rolf Haubenreisser

Rolf Haubenreisser

Had seizures and difficulty speaking. Died of starvation on May 16, 1945 at age 9

Werner Gross

Werner Gross

Werner was described as suffering from inflammation of the ear which caused him to have trouble hearing and speaking. He was unable to walk by himself. He was transferred to the “Heil- und Pflegeanstalt Eichberg” & was  killed by a medical experiment on October 6, 1943 at age 4.

Alfred Rahnhert

Alfred Rahnhert

Diagnosed with a debility, murdered in the gas chamber on November 1, 1943 at age 5.

What is even more disturbing there are several governments who are re-introducing elements of the T4 an 14f13 programs, be it with different names.

A threat to the nation

9d0702eed83a60036bbb6be48be19250 (1)

I can nearly understand why adult civilians could be perceived as a threat to the nations.Although I know the reasons why I still don’t comprehend them.

But children, why? Of course this is the way the Nazi’s wanted to ensure that the ‘undesirables’ would have no future. I have done blogs on the young victims of the Holocaust before and this is another one,because there are still too many who do not realize the implications of the Holocaust. This could happen again and to an extend it is already happening in some parts of the world.

The next time it could be you and your children.

These are pictures of young children who were murdered in Auschwitz.It is not easy to look at these children but we can not afford for these children to be forgotten.

The Holocaust from the eyes of a child

1a730ae8672f2e765ab86f8342b17c79

The Holocaust is often best described in the simplicity of the art and words of the children who were the victims. Below are some poems and drawings from children of the Holocaust.

The picture above is a painting by a child interred in Terezin camp during the Holocaust. She dreamed of seeing butterflies again.

At Terezín

When a new child comes
Everything seems strange to him.
What, on the ground I have to lie?
Eat black potatoes? No! Not I!
I’ve got to stay? It’s dirty here!
The floor- why, look, it’s dirt, I fear!
And I’m supposed to sleep on it?
I’ll get all dirty!

Here the sound of shouting, cries,
And oh, so many flies.
Everyone knows flies carry disease.
Oooh, something bit me! Wasn’t that a bedbug?
Here in Terezín, life is hell
and when I’ll go home again, I can’t yet tell.

On a Sunny Evening

On a purple, sun-shot evening
Under wide-flowering chestnut trees
Upon the threshold full of dust
Yesterday, today, the days are all like these.

Trees flower forth in beauty,
Lovely too their very wood all gnarled and old
That I am half afraid to peer
Into their crowns of green and gold.

The sun has made a veil of gold
So lovely that my body aches.
Above, the heavens shriek with blue
Convinced I’ve smiled by some mistake.
The world’s abloom and seems to smile.
I want to fly but where, how high?
If in barbed wire, things can bloom
Why couldn’t I? I will not die!

Michael Flack, 1944

It breaks my heart but that is a small price to pay to remember the slaughter of innocence like the two year old children below.

Sidonie de Winter was only 6 years old when she was murdered at Sobibor death camp on July 23, 1943.

Ending this on a positive note

Just before Dachau was liberated on April 29, 1945, the women and their babies were evacuated from the Kaufering camp and put on a train bound for the main camp. On the way, the train was hit by Allied bombs, but the women and their babies survived; they arrived at Dachau shortly after the liberation.

Where’s the baby? Oh, just playing outside. In the cage!

Baby Cage

City apartments, as many people know, can be small and stuffy. And while fresh air is a wonderful, healthful thing for people of all ages, in the late 19th century, the idea of actively “airing” your baby to promote health started cropping up in parenting books.

The concept was introduced by Dr. Luther Emmett Holt who wrote about “airing” in his 1894 book The Care and Feeding of Children.

8ca5f0495e8e758cc1571f5e79fb09a3

A similar idaemakes an appearance in Louis Fischer’s 1920 book The Health-Care of the Baby, which describes “a convenient outdoor sleeping compartment readily attached to any window,” called the Boggins’ Window Crib. The wire device, 36″ x 24″ x 27″, is described as being “admirably adapted for city apartments,” with an insulated roof that will keep the baby cool enough to build up a cold-weather tolerance even in summer.

crib

In the 1930s baby cages were touted as the ‘it’ parenting product in Britain, with mothers everywhere dangling their tots out of windows and inside hutch-like contraptions so that their bundles of joy could be ‘aired’ and enjoy the fresh, outdoor air – without crawling away.

Just imagine walking through your town and seeing a baby dangling out of window these days.

Perhaps unsurprisingly the cages were out of fashion by the 1940s – and there hasn’t been resurgence since.

Babies would be placed in cages out of windows so that they could get ‘fresh air’

cagey

Built in 1937 and distributed in London to members of the Chelsea Baby Club, the baby cage was meant for women with children but without a backyard, garden or terrace for them to play in or on.

Thank got we don’t treat our children like animals anymore.

Why them?

title

I find it very hard to fathom any of the atrocities committed by the Nazi regime, but the one thing that gets to me most is the murder of children.

They did not pose any threat or any kind of danger, neither did their parents, but the children had no option to defend themselves.

They weren’t even led like lambs to the slaughter, because at least there is a purpose to slaughtered lambs. These children were killed because of some warped ideology that did not see them as human beings and often not even as animals.

In this blog are some pictures of children, no names, just the images of children.No graphic pictures. Their innocence will tell the story.

Followed by a poem I wrote to remember them.

Little child, you are someone’s treasure, a product of love.

You are born like any other child, no burden nor danger are you.

And yet, they fear you and want to eradicate you as if you did not exist.

Why do you anger them and what makes them hate you so much?

 

Your eyes are sparkling like diamonds or bright stars above.

A pure miracle created by two people who are now in awe of you.

But alas that is not enough for you to be granted a long fulfilling life.

For there are those who do not see that purity, to them you’re less than a thing.

 

It is not your fault nor is it your parents mistake.

You are perfect but the world you’re born into isn’t

Little child you are someone’s treasure, a product of love.

But that just isn’t enough.

The Children of WWII-Part 6

girl-with-union-jack (1)

A child is born with no state of mind,blind to the ways of mankind.

During WWII,as in any other war, all the children were victims,without exception.Of course the degree and severity on how they were victims had a significant difference. Some lost their lives,while others lost their innocence. Many of those who lost their innocence had to live with the emotional scars for the rest of their lives, for they had been forced to do things no child should ever have to do.

The only ‘crime they committed was being born at the wrong time,in the wrong place and sometimes to the wrong parents.

They did not start the war, nor did they ask for it but yet it affected them more then anyone else,because they would have to live with the aftermath.
