I've put this in military history as the subject pertains to WWII, the NSDAP, the camps across europe, the migration to Palestine and subsequent campaign in Palestine which we all argued about when the drama was on called 'The Promise'. Many things have been on my mind since (and prior to) that drama both resulting from anomalies regarding history, but also regarding every contact I have with the Israelis, who for reasons that have escaped me previously, seem to treat me very well considering my views regarding the establishment of Israel in 1948. These extend from sending a very cute and cuddly Yemeni associate of Shin Beth to contact me in the early 90s, to throwing games of pool in India when I jovially quipped 'Shall we play for the freedom of Palestine then?' (Yes Airborne I know you played sone part in that, I did see those para tattoos everywhere I went in India, you were hardly covert, hope your families enjoyed your busman's holiday that year!) to their amiable treatment of me on this site. They seem quite happy to have me as an enemy of Israel in a kind of 'better the devil you know' scenario, in fact it has been put to me on a number of occasions that I am far more in line with many Israelis, both in manner, attitude, and politics than I could possibly know (which given I've never been there could be true). So to the subject of this thread, it is to discuss a revision of WWII and directly post history, specifically the Balfour Declaration ("The Promise"?) the NSDAP, the Final Solution, the camps and their residents, the planned partionioning of Syria-Palestina, the Zionist movement and the plans for Israel, the arrival of the Hebrews (and I would posit interesting 'others') from Europe, the Palestine campaign, and subsequently the establishment of Israel/Naqba. I'd like to state that it is no way holocaust denial (it is well known that the NSDAP were systematic in their application of the final solution and meticulous in their recording of the same), but I do want to discuss the hypothesis that we may not fully know about all the people that were in the camps, or should I say I may not know about all the people that were in the camps, which is why I'm interested in discussing this with people on arrse who may have little nuggets which will fit into a larger jigsaw. I'll posit some of my questions and hypotheses in subsequent posts.
