Wikipedia and the various versions of “history”
Wikipedia is a useful resource if used with a sceptical attitude. For example, I saw this piece about one Anna Seghers, a Jewish woman who became a Communist Party member in Germany in 1928: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anna_Seghers.
According to that article, Anna Seghers was “arrested by the Gestapo” in 1932. That would in fact have been impossible, if only because the Gestapo was established only in 1933, at which time it was a police organization purely in the region of Prussia, having been set up by Goering. It became a nationwide organization three or more years later, in and after 1936: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gestapo.
Anna Seghers was from Mainz, in the Rhineland-Palatinate, and spent all or most of her life until 1934 in that region of Germany, mostly in Koblenz and Cologne. In other words, in the part of Germany where she lived, and when she lived there, there was no Gestapo.
It is possible that this Anna Seghers was questioned by local police, though not Gestapo, or even that she was briefly detained in 1933 or 1934 in Prussia (where there was a Gestapo), though that seems unlikely. Whatever the true facts, and even if she was arrested, she was then released. So she was not (as typical postwar propaganda would have it) brutalized, imprisoned, sent to a concentration camp, shot, “gassed” or her skull exhibited by SS-Ahnenerbe…
In fact, she went —and was allowed to go— to Switzerland in 1933 or 1934, and from there she went to Mexico.
“While still in Paris, in 1939, she had written The Seventh Cross, for which she received the Büchner-Prize in 1947. The novel is set in 1936 and describes the escape of seven prisoners from a concentration camp. It was published in the United States in 1942 and produced as a movie in 1944 by MGM starring Spencer Tracy. The Seventh Cross was one of the very few depictions of Nazi concentration camps, in either literature or the cinema, during World War II.” [Wikipedia]
So look at that above paragraph: The Seventh Cross was “one of the very few depictions of concentration camps” before 1945, yet that description is entirely fictional! Anna Seghers was never anywhere near a concentration camp or any kind of camp! In fact, she had left Germany in 1933 or 1934, i.e. before or within a few months of Hitler’s accession as Chancellor.
Reminiscent of the above is the 1993 film Schindler’s List, which many think of as “history”, whereas in fact it was based on a novel, Schindler’s Ark, written by an Australian who was only born in 1935, and whose novel (i.e. a work of fiction, which in fact won the Booker Prize for Historical Fiction) was published in 1983.
Naturally, a few real facts are woven into the fictional narrative. This is common to all “faction” writing (cf. The Day of the Jackal etc).
Another is the film Sophie’s Choice, which is completely fictional, but which many naive people cite as a “true story” and an example of the behaviour of the SS etc!
The “Working Class History” Twitter account weasels about Anna Seghers having “survived”, as if “the Gestapo” did terrible things to her instead of…nothing. The tweet there is very misleading, implying that Anna Seghers was detained for years, maybe until 1945!
If Anna Seghers had any contact with the German political police at all, it was probably no more than I had when a pack of Jews made a malicious report about me to the Essex Police in 2017: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/.
I notice that self-describing “historian” and “journalist” Mike Stuchbery, a twice-sacked temporary schoolteacher now living in Stuttgart, Germany, retweeted the above misleading tweet. He really ought to start to check his facts, in the manner of a real historian…[https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/10/23/a-few-words-about-mike-stuchbery/].
The BBC is riddled with traitors, as are all msm outlets.
I should like to know how many people now listen to BBC Radio 4 shows such as PM or Broadcasting House? Few, I think.
A couple of “Campaign Against Antisemitism” [“CAA”] Jew-Zionists discuss one of the women they and their friends used to troll mercilessly online (using pseudonymous Twitter accounts), a fact the lawyer for the “CAA” had to admit in open court during one of the court hearings in one of the Alison Chabloz cases.
They also made malicious complaint against people offline, ruining, for example, the (until-then successful) photography business of Jo Stowell. Now they still push a stick in on Twitter from time to time.
The odd thing about the above-noted remark by Applebaum is the contemptuous reference to the lady’s “failure in life“. A not uncommon remark by (((individuals))) like him, but does he ever look in the mirror? A former occasional/freelance scribbler, specializing in film, who has not had much published for quite a number of years (the occasional piece appears in the Jewish Chronicle). Applebaum is now, in effect, a 40-something house-husband. What right has he to look down on anybody?
Has Applebaum just explained, en passant, why he is so obsessive (about “anti-Semites”)?
My own experience (one of a number) of “CAA” malice: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/

“Priti Patel bullied staff” [news reports]. It is well-known that Indian women often bully their staff, eg household maids etc. That is even more true of those employers (or, in Sun-speak, “bosses”) brought up in modest circumstances (as Priti Patel was— her parents were small shopkeepers who built up a chain of profitable small shops). What surprises me is the surprise shown by all (in the msm etc).
Actually, exactly what do you have to do now to get permanently binned as a minister or Cabinet minister? Seems that bullying your staff is not enough. Neither is being corrupt, nor being an agent of Israel. Priti Patel has now achieved the hat-trick…yet there she sits on her huge rear end, still posing as Home Secretary. Jesus CHRIST!
Jan Morris, the writer, has died. As a travel writer, particularly, Jan Morris was unequalled, though “In an interview with BBC in 2016 she told Michael Palin that she does not like to be described as a travel writer, as her books are not about movement and journeys; they are about places and people.” [Wikipedia]; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jan_Morris.

“Public sector pay freeze to pay for lockdown and furlough” [news reports]
Still want more “lockdown” (shutdown), and more facemask nonsense?
If so, don’t complain about the inevitable consequences…
Ah. MSM drones who never said a single word in defence of Alison Chabloz, Jez Turner, me, others, are finding out now that their own freedom of expression is disappearing because it is convenient for ZOG/NWO to repress it.
This is what the MPs who are members of Conservative Friends of Israel (80% of Con MPs) and Labour Friends of Israel (many, inc. Jess Phillips, Rachel Reeves, Yvette Cooper, Keir Starmer etc) are supporting. Dictatorial Jew-Zionist power both in the Middle East and also in Europe, including the UK.
Those who are or think that they are “Left” or “socialist” should simply call those they criticize what “they” really are, behind all the other “identities”… eventually, they must express themselves clearly as to the menace…
