Liberation of Gunskirchen Lager

Gunskirchen, Austria - May 4, 1945

Recently I have been noticing a resurgence of Nazism. I have seen the way these groups have gone from being secret fraternities like the Ku Klux Klan to openly having marches in American cities.

Today, Thursday, October 20, 2005, I saw this news article:
Aryan newspaper's distribution garners complaints in Rogers.

A white supremacist newspaper distributed unsolicited literature to dozens of homes in Rogers on Tuesday, drawing complaints from a number of neighbors.

The Nazis along with the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) seem to be more open and are now actively promoting their propaganda once again. It seems that their ranks are growing and they no longer feel the need to operate in secret. The ones who were alive during World War II are becoming fewer and fewer. If you have a grandparent or great grandparent who saw the Nazi atrocities during World War II, you need to talk to them about the horrors they saw.

Your grandparents might not want to discuss the atrocities they witnessed, but you need to know that what went on during the 1930s to 1945. The hate groups are now saying that there were no atrocities during WWII. These lies and others that are being perpetrated today need to be shown for what they are.

Many have forgotten the lies that have been promoted by the Nazis.

A fellow minister in our church was a soldier in the 71st Infantry Division. What he saw at Gunskirchen is astounding. His division liberated Gunskirchen Lager and I have attempted to create as close as possible a reproduction of the original booklet published by the United States Army in 1945. Below is both the OpenOffice source and PDF files of the booklet.
