Other faces of the holocaust by RedOut Other faces of the holocaust by RedOut
Though the jewish community gets most of the sympathy for the holocaust, they werent the only ones in the camps. Most of these people were given a symbol of identification, coloured triangles. Some of these symbols went on to represent the group of people after the holocaust (homosexuals, for example)

Red: Political prisoner, often a communist or socialist that is not a nazi.

Pink: Homosexual

Brown: Sometimes used for undesirables or antisocials (like non-comformists) instead of black triangle, which was sometimes reserved for lesbians.

Purple: Jehova's whitness

Blue: Emigrant

Black: Antisocial

Green: Criminals

Yellow: Jew, 2 triangles used to form a star of david, this second star can be combined with any of the other triangles to form the star if they happen to be jewish too.

I felt like doing something informative, so here it is.

Actually, Pink was not just for homosexuals. Pink was at actually for sexual offenders that also included Rapists and Pedophiles. Brown was later given to the Gypsies, Black was "work shy" which included alcoholics, drug addicts, Lesbians, prostitutes and the like. And there is also the Red UnInverted triangle which was reserved for POW, spies and deserters.

I know Hitler is a Bastard but I hate how everyone hates the Germans for what he did. Earlier they were under his Control, mostly because they were Scared...but why do they call every German nowadays a Nazi? I mean...That's just mean.

What happened was shit though, I had ancestors who were Nazis and I had Ancestors who had died in Holocaust for many different reasons. I can't understand how they would think of doing something this cruel.

I went to the holocaust Museum in DC; it was amazing and horrifying and so many other things, but the one thing that truly stuck out to me was the a of information on people who weren't Jewish. We shouldn't forget or discount anyone or history is bound to repeat itself, was what the museum's message was, but there wasn't much about other people. Thank you so much for this piece and who it represents.

You know what?
Come on, child; walk in my ancestors shoes:
...Oh wait; that's right, you can't walk in them-
Because there shoes were thrown down in a flibbing PIT,
after they got their freaking SKULLS SMASHED IN BY SOME FASICT BASTARD WHO DIDN'T
EVEN KNOW THERE NAMES!
Oh, and that's not even the WORST PART; after their skulls were smashed,
the guard decided that they weren't DEAD ENOUGH, so he hung them by their feet and SHOT THEM
IN THE ANKLES UNTIL THEIR FEET WERE SEVERED FROM THERE LEGS, and then they'd be hung by their
hands and he'd REPEAT THE CYCLE!Oh, and i'm not done yet-
After all that their bodies would be creamated into little, tiny, pieces of ASH.

So, next time you want to say 'they had it coming', THINK, you little arrogant son of a bitch.
THINK!OH, AND EVEN IF YOU COULD WALK IN THEIR SHOES, YOU WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO FIT THEM!
YOU WANT TO KNOW WHY??BECAUSE EVEN WHEN THEY WERE LITTLE, TINY, SHIT ASHES; THEY WERE STILL
ONE-HUNDRED TIMES THE PITIFUL EXCUSE OF A HUMAN BEING THAT YOU DARE CALL YOURSELF TODAY.

Well jews back in pre ww2 german were very aggressive about owning things, and even boycotted germany around the world before hitler came to power to try and cause its downfall. I don't think the holocaust happened, but if it did, I only feel sorry for the kids.
And lol I use to listen to that band back in like 2005 back when I was 12

Well I was big into 80's underground hardcore, like black flag and the dead kennedys, But I still like them, But 99% of my music now is various forms of classical music and Celtic musics. For celtic music mostly the Dubliners (When Luke Kelly was alive and singing) and for classical stuff, Bach, Wieniawski, Max Bruch, Paganini, Vivaldi, ect ect. What about you?

PoppySeedz Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Cool!I love Celtic music!(A-a-and I d-don't know what you're talking about..!Luke Kelly is still a-alive!*in denial*)On the classical part I usually listen to Beethoven, Bach(You too??), Rezső Seress(I supose he could be considered 'classical') Mmm, I kinda keep it on the down-low with the 80's and most of the stuff I listen to now are Polish bands like Lao Che and Republika,(i'm tapping into my roots, too!)the 60's & 70's (Fleetwood Mac, the Beatles, James Taylor, ect...), and a bunch of other music that would probably bore you to death.But, in general, I like all music!Play any instruments?
