Earlier this week, Romea.cz reported on vulgar contributions insulting little Natálka Siváková which are being made by neo-Nazis on the discussion forum hooligans.cz. Now the web server Antifa.cz has reported further evidence of the openly monstrous racism of the members of the Autonomous Nationalists and the Workers’ Party. News server Prvnízprávy.cz cites the Antifa.cz article in its own reporting. Little Natálka has received many Christmas gifts from various people and has thus become a thorn in the side of Jan Fuksa, a Workers’ Party member and candidate. Fuksa has openly threatened anyone and everyone who has sent the child presents, writing: ”Those who send even the smallest gift to a colored girl do not deserve to live in a white society. One day we will select them for removal.” Tomáš Skyba, a member of the Autonomous Nationalists in Zlín region, wrote in: “I’d put a can of Zyklon under her [Natalka’s] Christmas tree.” (Editor’s Note: The Nazis murdered the prisoners interned in their concentration camps with Zyklon B gas in the gas chambers). Neo-Nazi Jan Bareš wrote: “I’d give her a nice little bottle of gasoline and matches, since it’s Christmas!” Prvnízprávy.cz reports that the worst contributions have been made by 21-year-old neo-Nazi Martin Grund of Teplice, who writes on Facebook under the nickname Obergruppenfuhrer Böhse Onkel and called Natálka a “gypsy beaver”, writing: “I would send her a beautiful package of anthrax so she can breathe better.”
Glorification of those involved in Nazi crimes is absolutely inadmissible, it was declared by the Russian representative Grigory Lukiantsev. Mr Lukiantsev was speaking at the United Nations Headquarters in New York during the Third Committee of the United Nations General Assembly before voting on the Draft Resolution “Inadmissibility of certain practices that contribute to fuelling contemporary forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance.” “Such “feeding” of contemporary forrms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance cause deep concern,” said the Russian representative. The Draft Resolution was approved by 124 votes “for” with 55 abstentions. Only the USA made a stand against it.
The Anti-Defamation League took the Catholic Church to task this week, disputing “historical evidence” cited by Church officials as proof that WWII-era Pope Pius XII had worked to save Jews from the Holocaust. The evidence in question was presented at a conference in Rome in September 2009 and apparently cleared Pius XII of accusations that he was silent in the face of the atrocities taking place in wartime Europe.
Members of neo-Nazi organizations contributing to the “hooligans” web page, the Facebook social networking site, and several publicly accessible neo-Nazi web pages have verbally assaulted Natálka Siváková, the little girl who suffered serious burn injuries as a result of an arson attack in Vítkov. František Bublan, former Czech Interior Minister and chair of the Committee on Security in the Czech lower house said today that he was handing over all available evidence to staff of the Czech Republic Police Presidium in Prague, news server Prvnizpravy.cz reports.
A U.S. appeals court has dismissed a lawsuit by Holocaust survivors against the Vatican bank, ruling not on the allegations against the bank but rather on jurisdiction. The plaintiffs %u2013 Jewish and other survivors from Yugoslavia, Croatia and Ukraine – claimed that the Vatican bank and others stored and laundered $50 million worth of their valuables that had been stolen by the Nazi-backed Ustasha regime that controlled Croatia. Representing over 300,000 Holocaust victims and their heirs, they sought an accounting, restitution and damages from the Vatican %u2013 in the form of the return of that portion of the Ustasha treasury that had been transferred to the Vatican, the Franciscan Order, and other banks after World War II.
Poland’s supreme court has agreed to consider whether the Polish survivor of a Nazi World War II massacre can sue Germany for compensation in a Polish court, a court spokeswoman said Tuesday. Judges decided that the case, brought by 71-year-old Winicjusz Natoniewski, should be dealt with because it hinged on a “crucial legal issue”, supreme court spokeswoman Teresa Pyzlak told news agency AFP. “The question is whether the Polish courts have jurisdiction in a case pitting an individual against another state, and whether legal action can therefore be taken,” Pyzlak said. Natoniewski was disfigured by severe burns he suffered during a February 1944 massacre of civilians by Nazi troops and police in his home village, Szczecyn, in southeast Poland. In his bid for compensation from the German state he had failed to get a hearing in two, lower-level Polish courts before taking his case to the supreme court. To date, German state compensation to Polish war victims has been paid out under a swathe of bilateral and multilateral agreements.
Former Ku-Klux-Klan head David Duke, who was expelled from the Czech Republic last April but the prosecution was later halted, will again arrive in the country in end-January, Tyden.cz reports today. The police accused Duke of denying the Holocaust in his book My Awakening that was also published in the Czech Republic. Duke’s forthcoming visit is again organised by Filip Vavra who is often linked with the neo-Nazi organisation National Resistance, Tyden.cz writes.
