World History

Tuesday, October 10, 1944. :   In the WWII Holocaust, 800 gypsy children are murdered.

     Gypsies are an ethnic group originating in India. During medieval times they took to wandering beyond their homeland, spreading to and throughout Europe. As with the Jewish people, Gypsies were singled out for racial persecution by the Nazis. Whilst they conformed physically to the "Aryan" ideal favoured by the Nazis, suspicion of the nomadic race prevailed, and the Gypsies came under the same attack as the Jews. In all, about 250,000 Gypsies were sent to Auschwitz and other extermination camps, where they were either treated as guinea-pigs for experimental medicines, or executed. On 10 October 1944, about eight hundred Gypsy children were murdered at Auschwitz.

Thought For Today
Don't do anything from selfish ambition or from a cheap desire to boast, but be humble towards one another, always considering others better than yourselves.
Philippians 2:3 (c) GNB
People can sense the true motivation behind any action. Don't dirty your reputation with cheap tricks.
