Big numbers, little numbers

Yad Vashem is using a new Spectrum XF system to scan millions of Holocaust documents. The digitized images of the documents will be accessible to the public via the organization's Web site. The database includes personal testimonies, artifacts, more than 263,000 photographs and tens of thousands of lists, which include the names of millions of Jewish victims of the Holocaust.

The digitization project is part of a larger development plan designed to facilitate and modernize Holocaust research and scholarship. In addition to document imaging, the recently completed development plan included the opening of the International School for Holocaust Studies, the world's largest school dedicated to teaching the history of the Holocaust; new offices for the International Institute for Holocaust Research; a new Archives and Library Building; a new Visitors' Center and a new, state-of-the-art Museum Complex that includes a Holocaust History Museum, Hall of Names and Holocaust Art Museum.

Meanwhile, here are three new illustrated articles by Fritz Berg created from a different point of view. Not millions. Three.

NAZI Railroad Delousing Tunnels for Public Health or Mass Murder!
Hamburg Victims of Allied Terror Bombing
German Hospitals Destroyed by Allied Terror Bombing

And then there is the simple “One Percent” offer from The National Association of Forensic Criminologists, Archeologists, Skeptics and Historians (NAFCASH) is offering a $100,000.00 reward for anyone who can locate one of the alleged “huge mass graves” at Treblinka where allegedly 870,000 victims were buried. You have to prove the exact location of the grave and the exact dimensions. And then there is the easy part. You have only to prove that the grave/s contains the remains of one (one) percent of the bodies allegedly buried there.

And if you think that is easy, just wait until you see how easy THE FINAL SOLUTION FORENSIC CHALLENGE is soon going to be.

I'll give you a hint:

1/10th of one percent.

Yes, you read that correctly - 1/10th. And that's not all. There will be other changes to make laying claim to the reward even easier also.

I hope to have the new requirements posted / official by the end of the week.
