Self-Help Guru Supports the “Holocaust”

      Self-help gurus frequently mention the “Holocaust” in their quest to help people lead better lives. This article analyzes the writings of self-help guru and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Marianne Williamson concerning the “Holocaust.”

      Marianne Williamson writes of her visit to Holland:

      On the same trip, I visited the house of Anne Frank. It’s been years since I read The Diary ofAnne Frank, and I thought I had internalized her story and its meaning. Yet visiting the Anne Frank museum with my daughter on this trip, I could barely stop crying—in fact, I couldn’t stop crying—as I walked through the rooms of her family’s house. Seeing where she slept, unable to run outside and play or even look at sunlight through the window; seeing the places on her wall where her father pasted pictures from magazines so it wouldn’t seem quite so dreary; thinking of the extraordinary, daily tension and fear that were experienced by those hiding in those rooms as well as by their friends who were hiding them; thinking of all the years they survived that way, only to have their hiding place betrayed a year before the end of the war; and thinking of Anne’s horrifying days at Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, only to die one month before the liberation of the camps—I could hardly bear the weight of such sorrow, mixed with Anne’s profound and compassionate insights into the nature of the human heart. I thought about her father’s survival, his learning of his family’s death, his publishing Anne’s diaries—and always with the realization that this same tale of suffering was experienced not once but 6 million times.[1]

      The fate of Anne Frank, who is known around the world for her famous diary, is typical of many Jews who died in German camps during the war. Anne and her father were first deported from the Netherlands to Auschwitz-Birkenau in September 1944. Anne’s father contracted typhus at Auschwitz and was sent to the camp hospital to recover. He was one of thousands of Jews who remained at Auschwitz when the Germans abandoned the camp in January 1945. He survived the war and died in Switzerland in 1980.

      In the face of the advancing Soviet army, Anne Frank was evacuated to Bergen-Belsen, where she died of typhus in March 1945. While Anne Frank’s fate was tragic, her story is not consistent with a German plan of extermination against the Jews. Along with thousands of others at Bergen-Belsen, Anne died from a typhus epidemic and not from a German plan to commit genocide against European Jewry.

      Marianne Williamson further writes:

      There is a building in Amsterdam where all Jews were rounded up by the Nazis for deportation to the concentration camps, where many of them would be gassed immediately upon arrival. A plaque on the building says we should take a moment and remember them. In that moment, I think the departed souls feel our blessing; hopefully, in some way, it helps bring them peace.[2] 

      Williamson in this passage falsely states that Jews were gassed in German concentration camps during World War II. The reality is that there were no homicidal gas chambers in any of the German concentration camps. Reports, articles, testimony and videos from Walter Lüftl, Germar Rudolf, Friedrich Paul Berg, Dr. William B. Lindsey, Carlo Mattogno, John C. Ball, Richard Krege and David Cole have conclusively shown that there were no homicidal gas chambers at any of the German camps during World War II.  The number of 6 million Jews who died during the war is also a ridiculous exaggeration.

      Williamson states in a recent interview that Germany has paid $89 billion in reparations to Jewish organizations as compensation for the so-called Holocaust. She thinks these reparations are a good thing because they have helped to establish reconciliation between Jews and Germans. Williamson does not seem to understand that the official Holocaust story is a fraud. She also fails to explain why Germans should not be compensated for the millions of Germans who were mass murdered by the Allies after World War II.[3]

      Williamson also praises the luminosity of Oscar Schindler’s accountant. Williamson writes:

      In the movie Schindler’s List, the character of Schindler’s accountant, played by Ben Kingsley, demonstrates this luminosity: Barred by circumstances from fully speaking his opinions, the man’s moral substance has a profound effect on Schindler nevertheless. This change within Schindler saves many people’s lives. Philosophically, the accountant is the center of the movie, the miracle-worker, the conduit of truth, the bearer of a silent power that casts out evil through the awakening of good.[4]

      Williamson fails to acknowledge in this passage that Germany did not have a program of genocide against the Jews, and that Schindler’s List is a manipulative propaganda movie. She states that she is always open to learning more.[5] Hopefully, Williamson will eventually study the so-called Holocaust and learn that the official Holocaust story is fraudulent.

      Williamson, who is Jewish, also writes about the need for healing among nations:

      On August 1, 1994, the Polish nation commemorated the 50th anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising, in which 200,000 Poles were killed by German Nazis, and 500,000 more were transported to concentration camps.

      During this commemoration, German president Roman Herzog made an extraordinary apology to the Polish people. “Today, I bow down before the fighters of the Warsaw Uprising as before all Polish victims of the war,” he said. “I ask for forgiveness for what has been done to you by Germans…It fills us Germans with shame that the name of our country and people will forever be associated with pain and suffering, which was inflicted on Poland a million times. We mourn the dead of the Warsaw Uprising and all people who lost their lives in World War II.[6]

      Williamson fails to explain why the Allies should not apologize and reimburse Germany for the millions of Germans murdered after the end of World War II. She also does not realize that National-Socialist Germany was not primarily responsible for starting World War II. Williamson additionally fails to provide the context for the Warsaw Uprising. SS-Panzergrenadier Hans Schmidt expressed his view of Germany’s actions during the Warsaw Uprising:

      For the Poles to start the August 1944 uprising in their capital city at the very moment when the German soldiers of the Eastern front were in a desperate defensive battle with the Red Army proved a great miscalculation. It bears remembering that the numerous marshaling yards around Warsaw were the major railroad connections between the Reich and the Eastern front, and these connections had to be held at all costs. Consequently the German reprisals against both the partisans as well as against the general population supporting the underground fighters were both swift and brutal. The inner city of Warsaw was largely destroyed during the ferocious battles that lasted for two months. To make a special issue, as the Poles seem to do even to this day, of the fact that the Germans leveled the inner city of Warsaw during the uprising is ludicrous. By that time most German inner cities had been destroyed, and the Allies had even attacked targets in Rome and Paris, something the German High Command had always avoided. Considering everything, there was no reason for the German High Command to go easy on the residents of the Polish capital.[7] 

Conclusion

      Williamson and other self-help gurus frequently cite the Holocaust story in their books and teachings. They consistently claim that the so-called Holocaust is one of the darkest chapters in world history. I have yet to read one self-help guru who disputes the Holocaust story. Whenever a self-help guru repeats the official Holocaust narrative, I question their wisdom and let other people be inspired by their teachings.

Editor Comment:

Self-Help Gurus almost universally close ranks with the MSM on key narratives including slavery and the HolocaustTM. That white European men, women and children were raided, invaded and enslaved for centuries by Arab and African slavers, even after slavery was ended in America, conveniently escapes the Guru’s attention.

That white men, women and children in America were the slaves of Africans, Native Americans, Jews and other white people also escapes the attention of the self-help gurus. They cannot bring themselves to demand other races give an apology to the hundreds of millions of white American and European descendants of slavery. Why not?

Never Ending Reparations Based on Skewed Historical Narratives Are Not Healing But Eternally Lucrative!

In this article John Wear questions the ‘holocaustianity’ assertions by the guru Marianne Williamson, spiritual advisor to Oprah Winfrey (how lucratively mainstream can you get!). Marianne Williamson ignores the factual evidence to make White Guilt a ‘Religious’ Experience:
