The Zionists have developed some very interesting ways to sell their narrative of Shoah (Holocaust) – from porn to museums. Former Israeli foreign minister Abba Eban had once said: “There’s no business like Shoah business“.
Efthymios Kontopoulos 83, is a retired engineer from Greek railway. After he retired in 1985, he became a collector. He convinced the city officials to donate the Thessaloniki’s abandoned railway building for the purpose of establishing a Railway Museum. The building contains his collection of old railway carriages, photographs, maps, uniform buttons, an Ottoman-era conductor uniform, Morse code devices and a bathroom set salvaged from the Greek royal railway carriage.
Kontopoulos claims that four of the wooden cattle carts among his collection, were used to ship nearly 4,000 Greek Jews to Auschwitz. Though he has no historical proof to back-up his claim – but the Holocaust Museum industry has accepted Kontopoulo’s claim as part of its narrative of 49,000 out of 55,000 Jews living in Thessaloniki being deported by the Nazis during the WW II.
Kontopoulos says his claim is based on common stories among the railway workers that these Belgium-made carriages for tranporation of goods and cattles were used to transport Jews to the Nazi labor camps. After the WW II, some of them were converted to dormitory compartments for the railway workers.
Even though, there is no official record to prove that these are authentic Shoah carriages, some Jewish historians agree with Kontopoulos’s claim on the basis that Greeks traditionally are not strong on keeping records!
These ‘Shoah carriages’ are going to be the main attraction as the Thessaloniki Jewish community plans to mark the 70th anniversary of the deportations, this month.
The Jewish Federations of North America has already sent a large batch of Jewish pilgrims to Thessaloniki to witness the horors of the Shoah, which late Canadian Chief Rabbi Wolf Gunther Plaut claims in his 1990 book, ‘The Man Who Would Be Messiah‘, was committed by Frankist Jews.
One Elie Wiesel-style ShoahMuseum already exists in Athens for the 3,000-strong Greek Jewish community. However, Athens is the only European capital city which doesn’t have a single mosque for 310,000 Athenian Muslims to pray even though under Muslim rule (1500-1821), the city used to boast over 70 mosques. Greece has a Mulim population of over 700,000.
