Czechoslovakia Breaking News!!!!!

After digging deep and searching for the facts about the Holocaust. How it happened, why the Jews, and most of all why didn't anyone rise against it. Years have passed but we have not gave up on the story, we have interviewed hundreds of survivors. We also have asked millions of questions all now have lead up to are facts and answers to all questions about the holocaust. Here is one of our interviews from about 1937; it is with Helmuth Hubener. A little boy that is living in Germany at the time of Hitlers rise to power. He is not Jewish but still stands up for what he believes in even when others do not. He is a brave, courageous soul that is fed up with the mistreatment of Jews and the unfair laws that have been set forth by Hitler. Therefore he rebels against Hitler and tries to attract as many followers as he can even though his life is on the line. Throughout his effort to stop Hitler he followed a small piece of wisdom "Stand up for what is right even if you are standing alone". He is remembered as a brave little solider that fought long and hard for what is right. He was put to death due to his rebelling against Hitler and the Nazis. Here are his finally words that Helmuth spoke before he was executed by the guillotine. Live from Czechoslovakia Breaking News.
