I know what you mean. Nazis = Communists. Why should it be any other way?

I'm waiting for investigation of Soviet camps.

How many russians are murdered by communist goverment? How many german prisoners have been killed in Siperia? How many polish prisoners have been murdered in Katyn? Somehow that is not talked a lot about but german camps are also much more mediasexyer.

How many peoples has communism killed in the world? About 120 millions, and mostly own citizens in peace time. That is a big pile of bodies. Somehow no-one wants to remember them.

@ Sherman:

It was meant as sarcasm, I guess it just came out wrong or maybe you jumped the gun too early whilst not understanding the full meaning of it.

What I think about when I see or read about the camps like Treblinka or Auschwitz, what strikes me is the methodical, mechanical, totally detached manner by which the Jewish people were killed. I might could see a situation in which a prisoner or prisoners of war would have to be executed but not in such a fashion. Man's inhumanity to man, I'll never understand nor will I try.

We will never know.
An incredible amount of Koreans have died because of Communism as well. From the massacre of South Korean Christians during the Korean War, and also the Stalin's forced moving of Koreans in the Vladivostok area to Kazakhstan. The rail route took them through Siberia. They were in uninsulated rail cars. The old volunteered to be the outer layer and they put the young in the middle. They made the insulation that way. Needless to say countless people died on that trip and as a result of the relocation, there is a significant Korean community in Kazakhstan.
Not to mention the ongoing doings in North Korea, though it seems more died as a result of the failure of Communism than actual murders.

But of course we all know about Cambodia... another fine thing that is being covered up like there's no tomorrow. I believe they had a population of what... 6 million? They killed off anywhere between a million to two million people. When I was in Belgium and talked to people there about this, they didn't know. I thought it was just incredible. Here are two couple sitting here with their baby, believing that Capitalism is evil and Communism is the answer, and they don't even know what happened in Cambodia!!!!

Not trying to justify their deaths here, but if you think about it, the operations to kill off the Jews probably took away a LOT of the supplies and ate up a lot of the logistics that could have been used on the fighting fronts. So in a way, these people who died in the camps ended up being probably the most unsung as Heroes who helped win the war.

That's why gas chambers were erected...the Nazis figured they spend too much ammo and that shootings take too long.

Didn't alleviate their railroad needs. Railroads were vital to the war machine but they tossed that resource away and used it to send millions to the camps instead. Their Reich was almost totally collapsed and still the trains went on their way to the camps.

Any idea how much logistical effort it takes to round up and transport all those people?? Not to mention the cremations. That used up all kinds of fuels that could have been used elsewhere. Imagine if all that effort was put into re-equipping and resupplying their soldiers at the fronts.
