1978 the year the ‘holocaust’ was created

On November 1, 1978, President Jimmy Carter established the President’s Commission on the Holocaust, and charged it with the responsibility to submit a report on three significant issues: the creation of an appropriate memorial to those who perished in the Holocaust; the feasibility of creating and maintaining a memorial through contributions by the American people; and recommendations for appropriate ways the nation could commemorate Days of Remembrance each year for victims of the Holocaust.

Many reference works, including encyclopedias and dictionaries, show no listings under “Holocaust” until 1978. For example, the 1976 CBS News Almanac makes passing reference to “the Nazi holocaust that took the lives of six million Jews,”25 while the 1976 Information Please Almanac makes no mention of the Holocaust. Three years later, however, the 1979 edition of the Information Please Almanac not only refers to the Holocaust in its timeline of history, but also explicitly defines the term in a lengthy sidebar.

A computerized search shows that no PhD dissertations prior to 1970 used the word “Holocaust” in the title, while between 1970 and 1975 there were 21, with 97 dissertations between 1976 and 1980, and 274 between 1981 and 1985.26

The turning point was the four-part NBC miniseries “Holocaust,” which aired in April of 1978.  By the next year, Congress had approved plans for the US Holocaust Memorial Museum, and from that point on, “holocaust” became “the Holocaust” when describing the fate of the Jews during the Second World War.

    BLACKMAIL & SCAM ! – During WW2 France was an occupied country.

    Latest update : 2014-12-05
    The French Foreign Ministry and US State Department jointly announced a deal on Friday to provide millions in compensation to Americans and others deported to death camps by French state railway company SNCF during the Nazi occupation.

    The $60 million (€49 million) compensation fund will be financed by France and managed by the United States.

    France’s parliament must approve the agreement before any payments can be made.

    In exchange for the $60 million sum, the US government pledges to “recognise and affirmatively protect the immunity of France … with regard to Holocaust deportation claims in the United States”, a statement from the State Department said.

    The French government has already paid more than $6 billion in reparations, but only to French citizens and certain other deportees. The new deal will provide compensation for American citizens, Israelis and others.

    SNCF transported about 76,000 French Jews to Nazi concentration camps during the war.

    State legislators in the United States have in the past sought to block SNCF from bidding for rail contracts because of its wartime actions.

    In June, Senator Joan Carter Conway introduced a bill in Maryland’s state legislature that would ban the Keolis transport firm, whose majority stakeholder is SNCF, from bidding on a €4.4 billion US contract.

    Conway and fellow Democratic lawmaker Samuel Rosenberg said Keolis should be kept out of the bidding process until SNCF compensated the families of Holocaust victims.

    SNCF in the past has resisted pressure to take direct responsibility for the 1940-1944 deportations of Jews to Auschwitz and other death camps, claiming it had been requisitioned by the Vichy regime that collaborated with the German occupiers.

    The truth of the Covenant off the Prophecy of Jeremiah in 2 Maccabees 2 relates to the words of Christ of the manner “You know not the Father neither the Son but them unto whom the Son pleases to reveal” which would be just as Moses witnessed the Inheritance upon the mount to the Eternal Inheritance of God, the revelation of which is found to totally Contradict Zionism, its nationalism & all that surrounds it, for behind this Abomination lie the Biblical “False Prophet” identified as ‘theosophy” the basis that governs Freemasonry to Zech 5 – the curse of the flying scroll (Freemasonry) governed by the wickedness(Theosophy) in an Ephah established upon her own Pedstral in the land of shinar spiritually called the United states born of England. Freemsonry so happens to be the very Entity off that Enmity from Eden, & its character today is “Sodom” come as the very Marker. The Abomination of the many alters figured in the British Freemasonic Israeli supreme court- denoting the Hindu Vishnu to ‘Egypt’ says much to its secretive ways.
