This is typical of the many findings of trench burials outside
concentration camps. It doesn't matter if the Jews here died of gassing,
disease, starvation, or gunshots. Dead is dead. Those who are incarcerated
are the sole responsibility of all those who guard them while they are
there. People have the right to be treated fairly and humanely and kept
>from  harm. Period. Here is another of thousands of discoveries. It just so
happens, it was discovered just two days ago:

Mass grave unearthed in Austria

VIENNA, Austria - Workers building a power plant unearthed what appears to
be the mass grave of Holocaust victims, state television reported Tuesday.

Two trenches filled with skeletons were discovered during earth-moving
work for the hydropower plant near Lambach, about 140 miles west of
Vienna, according to the television report. 

There was no independent confirmation of the report. The Interior Ministry
sent officials to the site to investigate. 

The construction crew exhumed six skeletons believed to be of men in their
early 20s, state television said. It was not known how many more remains
the trenches might contain. 

The construction project is near the site of the Gunskirchen concentration
camp, set up as late as March 1945 as part of the infamous Mauthausen
death camp, where Nazis killed thousands of prisoners. 

Most of the Gunskirchen prisoners were Hungarian Jews, who died by the
dozens in the waning weeks of World War II when a typhoid epidemic swept
the camp. 

U.S. troops liberated Gunskirchen in May 1945, and found 12,000 emaciated

Tuesday's discovery halted construction. Ecologists have been trying to
trying to stop the project permanently, claiming the power plant would
harm wildlife and is unnecessary. 

Simon Wiesenthal, an authority on Nazi death camps, said World War II mass
graves could be found "everywhere" in Austria. 

In a television interview, he said there were many mass graves in Upper
Austria, containing mostly Jewish inmates farmed out from overcrowded
Mauthausen to other camps. 

"If one does a lot of digging in Austria, one finds Roman ruins. At the
same time you can find people who were shot to death" by Nazi death camp
guards, Wiesenthal said. 

Note: We all know that these camps caused the deaths of thousands of human
beings, especially Jews. It must never happen again. Nazis are total scum
and represent an authority based upon lower class support for its power
base. Hitler corrupted the German people in this, as most revolutions are
corrupted. If he had been a fair man, he would not have done this. Hitler
was a turd.
