"Urban myth?" Sort of like how you regard other aspects of the Holocaust?michael mills wrote:Penn 44 wrote:
The above sounds like an urban myth to me. Could we have some evidence please?The impact of these Nazi biological myths on actual events often took bizarre forms. For example, when the Jews of Berlin were deported east, they had to leave their pets behind. Instead of giving these pets to Aryans (some of these animals were high quality, expensive animals), the Nazis chose to exterminate them instead because the Nazis feared that the animals had become "Jewish" animals from having lived in close proximity to their Jewish owners.
The German authorities had no qualms about issuing to ethnic German refugees clothing that had previously been worn by Jews and had no doubt absorbed quite a bit of Jewish sweat and other bodily fluids.
Clothing can be laundered. Although you can wash a pet, and as far as your friends believed, if the Jewishness gets into the critter's blood, its lost to its animal race. I can no longer be an Aryan pet. You should know that Herr Mills. I am surprised that you didn't refer to these animals as "Jewish-Bolsheviks." You've revised many other aspects of the Holocaust, I don't suppose that there isn't any reason for you to deny this "Pet Holocaust."
The Nazis ordered banned German Jews from having pets on 15 May 1942. Jews were ordered to turn over these animals to the police.
Herr Mills asks for evidence. I recall reading of this account in an academic work several years ago, but I can't recall the title. However, here are some hits online that you can savor:

In May 1942, an order was issued to all Jews keeping animal pets to surrender these pets (Fürth, Germany).

Hey, Mills, again, I ask you, were these Jewish-Bolshevik pets?
