Russians revise holocaust plaque, offend Jerusalem Post

Nearly 70 years after the massacre of more than 27,000 Jews in Rostov, on the banks of the River Don, the Russian Ministry of Culture has announced it will replace the plaque adorning the monument to the dead. But once the text of the new inscription was revealed, it became clear that this was not merely an exhibition of the low level official’s love of new unveilings and plaque dedications. Rather it was another attempt by a European state to revise the history of the Holocaust and remove the stain of genocide from the national consciousness.

The original plaque recorded the event soberly and factually as follows: “On 11/12 August 1942 there had been destroyed by the Nazis more than 27,000 Jews. It is Russia’s largest Holocaust memorial”.

The new inscription immediately smacks of the sort of flowery, bloated language of patriotism more in tune with Stalin’s Russia than with a modern state. And it foreshadowed a return to the sort of euphemisms and terms of convenience rather than truth which were a feature of the old rule – and are increasingly becoming a feature of the new.

The amendment to the text was not merely an exercise in semantics.

Firstly, the victims of the massacre were no longer Jews, rather, “peace-loving Soviet citizens of all nationalities”.

Gone too is any reference to the Holocaust. Now the massacre is described as having occurred in the context of The Great Patriotic War.
No need to say much more. How dare they mention the goyim who died!? Jews suffered the most!! Jews! Holocaust! 6 million! Antisemite! How dare you mention the non-Jews who died and subject us to a lower status! Our event was unique! Fuck those Poles, and fuck the Russians! Holocaust deniers! Antisemites! SIX MILLION! SIX MILLION! NEVER FORGET THE SIX MILLION!!!!

Maybe Russia is trying to send a message that they might just decide to release some damning documents from their archives regarding the Holocaust TM, in case someone decides to do something stupid like attack Syria or Iran.
"When people learn to identify the source and nature of these influences swirling around them, it is sufficient. Let the American people once understand that it is not natural degeneracy but calculated subversion that inflicts us, and they are safe. The explanation is the cure." -- Henry Ford, 1922

Antonov was a Soviet company founded in 1946 by Russian engeneer Oleg Antonov in Novosibirsk. In 50s it moved to Kiev. Antonov suffered of big misfortune - after collapse of USSR it was left in independent Ukraine.Today the remnants of unlucky Antonov do not produce airplanes.
