Unarmed Jews defeat mass murder: Revolts at the extermination camps – The Washington Post
“Violence never solves anything”.. except in the case of deliberate genocide where violent revolt saved hundreds of thousands of lives. Today’s liberal academics overlooked that obvious example.
By David Kopel- Some people claim that firearms did not make, and could not have made, any difference in the Holocaust. The Sobibor and Treblinka extermination camps show the opposite is true. Once the formerly-unarmed Jews got their hands on firearms, the extermination camps were on their way out of business. There is a reason that people in death camps are not allowed to have arms. There is a reason why governments which intend to send people to death camps always disarm them first. Once the genocide targets are armed, genocide becomes much more difficult. Killing armed victims is much more difficult than killing unarmed ones.
