News from Germany, Tuesday, August 3, 1943

The Reichstag (German Parliament) voted Monday, after disturbing revelations of activities in certain "Work Camps" where Jews, Homosexuals and Gypsies were being "Held". Allegations that people were being gassed to death, bodies then stripped of all valuables including gold teeth and then incinerated in ovens was discussed on the Parliament floor. Arguments were made by the Hitler administration that while unpleasant, the operators of the camps were following the law and that all activities were legal and in order. A vote was called for to stop funding by the German government to continue these operations. It failed to pass the parliament. The camps continue to operate with German Government financial support.
And THAT my friends is what happened yesterday in the US Senate
