hol cover.jpgA group of Orthodox Jews from Israel have broken in to the former Nazi extermination camp of Majdanek in eastern Poland. Security guards at the camp, now a museum, called police when the 33 Orthodox Jews penetrated the camp after the end of visiting hours.

“They forced open two gates that lead to the army barracks of the former Nazi camp,” Lublin police spokeswoman Anna Smazak said. She says that the matter had been sorted out amicably after contact was established with the Israeli embassy in Warsaw.

“The head of the group, a man of 28, said that all the damage would be reimbursed,” the police spokeswoman said.

The group’s motive for trying to gain access to Majdanek was not immediately clear.

At the Majdanek death camp, set up by the Nazis near the eastern Polish city of Lublin, 360,000 people died between 1941 and 1944, either in the gas chamber or at the hands of firing squads.

  1. its not lashon harah because no one was accused of doing anything, all it says is “A group of Orthodox Jews from Israel” did something that bothered the people who killed us. that narrows it down to about 33 out of 500,000+
    but who says it was wrong to bother the Poles anyway? they are /were worse than the Germans according to most.

  2. I CONTANTED THE CHEVRAH ON THE TOUR AND THEY TOLDME SOME OF THE NOT REFINED CHEVRAH DECIDED TO TAKE THE DOOR HINGES OFF BECUASE THE CAMP WAS CLOSED OR IN OTHER WORDS THE CHEVRAH SAID “MEN VET MACHEN SEDER” AND IN THEY WENT THEN ON THE WAY OUT THE GUARD CAME AND THEY CALLED THE POLICE TO ARREST THEM SO THEY CALLED MK RABBI LITZMAN AND MK RABBI COHEN BUT THEY COULDN’T RESOLVE THE ISSUE FINALLY SOMEONE SAID LETS CALL MK RABBI MEIR PORUSH AND HE GOT THE AMBASSADOR OF POLAND ON THE LINE AND BORUCH HASHEM HE RESOLVED IT QUICKLY AS USUAL THE BOTTOM LINE IS IF IT’S CLOSED “MACH NISHT SEDER”

    It’s recommended NOT to jump to conclusions just because you got a bone to pick at.
