All Erotic Sleepovers include full course gourmet meals, more than enough liquid courage, adult novelties, unique adult entertainment, thousands of condoms and highly trained security guards.

No but this is a heartbreaking and here’s why:
The man in the picture is Leon Greenman (prisoner 98288) and he is the Englishman that survived Auschwitz and pretty much every other death/concentration camp set up by the Nazis, and his story is quite remarkable. 
I can’t remember the exact details, but he, his wife and his young child, all Jewish, lived in Rotterdam and during German occupation they were found out and sent to a concentration camp on the outskirts of Rotterdam. He had left his families British passports with friends back home, but the friends became afraid of hiding the passports of Jewish people so they burnt them. Leon requested multiple times for new passports so that they could get back to London, but the passports never arrived in time and Leon, his wife, and his child were separated and sent to Auschwitz. He never saw his wife or child again and he never remarried.
 He was moved from camp to camp throughout the war, and collected mementos from each camp as he went, until they were liberated by the allies in 1945, and he gives a first hand insight of what the Holocaust was like and what happened afterwards to the people that survived in his book. It’s called “An Englishman in Auschwitz” and is a humbling read.
My history teacher used to work at the Imperial War Museum in London and she had the pleasure of meeting him and listening to his story before he passed away in 2008 aged 97. He worked closely with the Jewish Museum London and fought fascism for the remainder of his life.

Alive, Church, and Confused: "Here is the list of Jews you required. Bishop Chrysostomos, 1943 Accidental Talmudist.com girlactionfigure: Bishop Chrysostomos, the spiritual leader of the Greek island of Zakynthos, stuck his neck out to save all 275 of the island’s Jews during the Nazi occupation of Greece. On September 9, 1943, Germany occupied the Italian territories, including Greece. Immediately, the German commander ordered all Greek Jews to be assembled for deportation to Poland. The mayor of Zakynthos, Lucas Carrer, was ordered to prepare a list of Jews on the island. Mayor Carrer made the list but before handing it over to the Nazis he went to the local church leader, Bishop Chrysostomos, for counsel. The bishop told the mayor to burn the list. He then went to the German commander and begged him not to deport the Jews. They were law-abiding citizens with the same rights as all other Greeks. The officer was unmoved and insisted on receiving the list of all Jews on the island. Bishop Chrysostomos took out a slip of paper, wrote his own name on it, and handed it to the German officer. “Here is the list of Jews you required,” he said. This action confused the Nazi, and gained the bishop and mayor the time they needed. Together, they warned all the Jews of Zakynthos that their lives were in danger. They urged their Jewish brethren to hide in the mountains, and promised that Greek islanders would provide them with food and shelter. The people of Zakynthos, led by their brave bishop and mayor, kept their hidden Jews alive until the island was liberated by the Soviet army in late 1944. In 1978 Bishop Chrysostomos and Mayor Carrer were honored as Righteous Among the Nations by Yad Vashem in Jerusalem. For their great leadership and courage in saving the lives of 275 Jews, we honor Bishop Chrysostomos and Mayor Carrer of Zakynthos, Greece as this week’s Thursday Heroes at Accidental Talmudist.

Ass, Christmas, and Life: 9% mevr app Want ot aitah Christmas dtey l0 you shaderiahcarey: jameshawking: shaderiahcarey: Little known fact: In 1994, Mariah Carey released her album Merry Christmas, which featured the holiday classic “All I Want for Christmas Is You”. This album marked a huge change in the way people celebrated Christmas. Due to the fear of communism during the Cold War, the color red had entirely been banned in the US. This directly affected Christmas. People did not celebrate the holiday in fear that they would be branded a communist and immediately arrested.  But then came Mariah. She decided the people had had enough of the oppressive US government and made an entire Christmas album in rebellion. She even went as far as to wear a daringly red Santa Claus suit on the album cover. Many lawsuits came her way and she was jailed for a brief period, but the public outcry was so large that the CIA had no option but let her go. A few days later, Congress lifted the ban on the color red and the holiday spirit was restored. Now we all celebrate Christmas freely thanks to Mariah Carey. Are you actually stupid?  You think the US Congress banned the color red? I don’t even need to cite anything for this.  But how about this: That’s Nancy Reagan wearing wearing a red dress as the First Lady.  We didn’t even ban the Communist Manifesto and taught it on campuses across the country, and you think we banned the color red? In short: you’re making stupid shit up out of your ass. Mariah Carey not only freed us from governmental oppression but in fact founded Christmas with Santa Claus himself in the North Pole.But I’m real glad you took the time out of your life to photoshop that picture of our former First Lady Nancy Reagan… Just sad really… seriously you people have to learn your history. Mariah freed us from the shackles of neo-liberal policies and free-market Reaganomics. She liberated Americans to once again love christmas. I hate ignorance tbh
