Betty Your Questions About Commandant Of Auschwitz

Betty asks…

Steve McQueen`s `Hunger`- have you seen/want to see?

This is the film where Fassbinder starves himself within an inch of death so as to approximate what the Maze prisoners in Belfast went through at the hands of Protestant captors.

It is just a pity that the technique was never used, appropriately, in films about the Nazi camps where Jews were starved (the least of the tortures); used as medical experiments; sterilized; and otherwise depraved by their Nazi captors.

Instead films like `Schindler`s List` romanticize the Holocaust.

What really galls me are the film`s preoccupations with vomiting up one`s food, excrement, as well as self-starvation as these (for me) characterise the fantasies of the Nazi commandants which were imposed upon unwilling victims.

I think it shows a deeply mistrustful instinct on the part of Channel 4 to sanction this kind of a film about the Maze riots. I wonder if they would have given it a `Go` had the proposal been about Auschwitz or Threisenstadt.

Someone should make a film about the Holocaust and I`d like to be the one to do it (before I die)

Our pick of the answers:

Bobby Sands starve to death, not within an inch of his life and he did so because he, and others, were treated like criminals and not political prisoners.
It was a political movement.
From what I remember, he was force fed and he died with a tube down his throat.

What happened during the holocaust was a systematic genocide. The two may bare some similarities but there completely different scenarios. And I think the exumation and burning of several hundred, maybe even thousands of holocaust victims is hardly romanticizing the holocaust.

Maria Your Questions About Commandant Of Auschwitz

Maria asks…

Can anyone tell me who said this?

This so-called ill treatment and torture in detention centers, stories of which were spread everywhere among the people, and later by the prisoners who were freed… were not, as some assumed, inflicted methodically, but were excesses committed by individual prison guards, their deputies, and men who laid violent hands on the detainees.
Was it:

A) George W. Bush
B) John Ashcroft
C) Donald Rumsfeld
D) Someone else

If you answered “someone else”, you’d be right. It was Rudolf Hoess, SS commandant of the infamous Auschwitz death camp where over 2.5 million people were murdered.

Please show the similarties between Auschwitz, Guatanemo, and terrorists that would gladly slice through your neck with a dull knife.

How can liberals make analogies like this? An apple is an orange is a banana?
