The Dresden Holocaust

February of 1945, the outcome of the war in Europe is already determined. Germany is finished and formerly surrenders 3 months later. The heinous slaughter and murderous firebombing of the beautiful city of Dresden was done because Winston Churchill wanted to impress the Russians. Stalin's fame of savagery and brutality made Churchill feel inadequate.  Not wanting to seem weak Churchill came upon the idea of barbarism so foul and murder so heinous that it would make the butcher of Stalingrad pause.
Winston Churchill choose "Ash Wednesday" to carpet bomb a defenseless city with ZERO military value.  That city was Dresden Germany.  A city which had become a hospital city catering to orphans and wounded soldiers. Dresden had no antiaircraft guns, no Luftwaffe airplanes to defend it, no tanks, and only wounded soldiers within it's city limits.  However, 500,000 refuges fleeing the inhumane horror of the Russian advance increased the city's population to over a million souls.  
On February 13-14 1945: The Holocaust came to Dresden, known as the Florence of the North.  More than 700.000 phosphorus bombs were dropped on 1.2 million people. One bomb for every 2 people. The temperature in the center of the city reached 1600 o centigrade. More than 260.000 bodies and residues of bodies were counted. But those who perished in the center of the city can't be traced. Approximately 500.000 children, women, the elderly, wounded soldiers and the animals of the zoo were slaughtered in one night. 

The death toll of Churchill's slaughter was staggering. The full extent of the Dresden Holocaust can be more readily grasped if one considers that well over 500,000 innocent souls died screaming and burning within a single 14-hour period.  Yet, the estimates of those who died at Hiroshima from an atomic bomb range from 90,000 to 140,000.   


These are Politicians voted into office, entrusted with the welfare of  a nation and it's peoples.  An elected official  roasted alive 500,000 innocent people all because one BUTCHER wanted to "impress" another MASS MURDER.
