    A survivor of the holocaust but a supporter of Palestinian oppression and massacre that is still happening since 1960. Hardly reformed. What went wrong?

    Hey if anyone is interested in other Dutch Resistance members (although not Jewish), I HIGHLY suggest you check out Freddie Oversteegen and Peter Tazelaar.

    I am unfortunately unaware of anyone else who was both Jewish and in the Resistance.

    The Netherlands’ performance vis a vis Jews during the Holocaust was mixed to be generous, unfortunately.

    I say that as a Dutch Jew.

    She is right about COMMEMORATIONS. I had no idea about Juneteenth (or that there was an influential Black Community in Tulsa) until DJT scheduled a rally in Tulsa on that day. I was stunned that I had no clue; how was that even possible? People, please, never stop telling your history, your stories; to do so, is to take for granted that everyone else knows about them.

    Trevor’s right, read this book. it’s not an easy read, but nonetheless important.
    another great book is ‘not then, not now, not ever’ by Truus Menger Oversteegen, who was part of a communist Dutch resistance group actively fighting the nazis. never thought it possible to despise the nazis even more

    My fathers first memory was as a two year old, on his mother’s arm on the balcony watching the Canadians fly over on the fifth of may. He’s 77 now and has Parkinson’s so these memories are slowly fading. It’s amazing for me to see the Daily show talk about Dutch Liberation Day. Thank you Trevor.

    As a Jew I know the importance of remembering the Holocausts, It was the biggest and most organized extermination of a people for having different beliefs, and because of the difference it is easy to blame all the bad on them. Unfortunately mankind is dumb. Different Groups have been and are still being targeted today because they are different and they are always to blame for everything bad that has ever happened

    “Dear President Biden!
    I would like to make you a Proposal regarding the issue of the Minimum Wage.
    There would be no problem with bankruptcies. And why do I talk about this topic safely?
    Because I was an eyewitness and intellectual witness of what happened in Germany with companies and factories that went bankrupt on purpose by their owners who left them with their own bags, and the money given to them by the solidarity tax for the reconstruction of the former DDR, East Germany.
    Investors from their country, the USA, taught the workers in these companies and factories to buy the company and put it on the stock exchange and those same workers who left the employees’ status and became the owners of the company had their efforts Harvesting Profits $$ instead of Bankruptcy.
    Which obviously had no repercussions in Germany, which is not really a democratic country, much less just and liberal. They quickly stifled this issue and called the same investors, the American investors, with “Grasshoppers of Capitalism”, which was a very low blow and False.
    This was just one of the measures to solve a problem in the transfer of funds to companies and a solution to the issue of the Minimum Wage.
    So we leave the company of an owner alone and pass it on to the company of all the Workers who are working there.
    One can also analyze a Capital for those who want to start their own company in economically weak places.
    Make this investment with all these smart fronts and put the USA in the magnificent Democratic place that it has always been and are, this the country that we all love, wherever we are.
    I love the United States of America and I wish you and all your team and management all the success that you all deserve !!
