The following is a copy of a letter I sent to my local paper. My original headline was "More than one Holocaust" - but the Derby Telegraph never will leave my headlines alone! Dr. Saros Kavina is a retired apparatchik of the race relations industry who frequently writes to say how beastly and racist Britain is. A while ago, he actually wrote that Stalin was preferable to Hitler because he was not "racist"!
SAROS Kavina gave us a timely reminder that we should not forget the horrors of the Nazi holocaust.
Many of the officials involved (called Schreibtischtaeter in German – desk criminals) went on to successful post-war careers in German and European politics, administration and industry.
Yet the notoriety of the Nazi horror somehow eclipses the far greater slaughter inflicted by Communist regimes in the name of the workers of the world and the brotherhood of man.
So far, nothing has outstripped the 70 million who were "deprived of existence" by the Chinese Communist regime, although Soviet Russia's executioners and starvation camp commandants far outdid the scale of Hitler's beastliness.
The historian Robert Conquest was the first to quantify the scale of the Soviet Terror and he composed a rather grim limerick as a reminder:
There was an old Marxist called Lenin,
Who did one or two million men in.
That's a lot to have done in, but where he did one in,
That old Marxist Stalin did ten in.
The French parliament recently passed a law making it an offence to deny the genocide of Christian Armenians by the Muslim Turkish Empire in 1915.
Oddly enough, Heinrich Himmler used this example to quieten his lieutenants' fears of retribution.
"Who remembers the Armenians now?" he asked in the thirties. Well, it seems the French do.
A historian or apologist for the Turks might deny the fact of this genocide in Britain.
He could then be extradited to France for this new offence under the European Arrest Warrant.
A crime does not have to be committed in the country issuing the warrant and you can be arrested and extradited to any EU country for offences which are not crimes under British law.
So much for freedom of speech in the supposedly democratic EU.
