Powerful stuff.

I recommend to watch that video Arnold made back in March, referenced in the article.

What took him so long to visit? His father was a decorated Nazi.

Gustav Schwarzenegger was a Nazi Sergeant, having risen to the rank of master sergeant with the Feldgendarmerie, the military police wing of the Nazis, during the war.

He probably had his reasons

He should visit the Palestinian territories next so he can see the modern day equivalent!

*a) *Arnold Schwarzenegger, one of the most likable people in the world.

b) That picture of him hugging Lydia Maksimovicz. Beautiful. The kinda stuff that warms our hearts and restores our faith in humanity.

Arnie is recognizing and realizing the horrors that were done in his people's name. Lest we forget, Adolf Hitler was an Austrian who became a German and took over Germany with his Nazi madness. In 1938 the Anschluss occurred due to traitors within Austria itself. The two German-speaking nations were forcefully united and the Austrians as well as the Germans have had to deal with the shame and disgrace their evil regime did in their name.

This is Arnie on a mission of peace and reconciliation. We need to see more of this.

I commend and salute the Terminator for his efforts to terminate the hateful evil legacy of fascism everywhere!

Well, it’s a bit more complicated then that, but you’re kind of partially right.

A powerful experience, I would recommend to everyone to visit Auschwitz and Birkenau next door, just don’t expect to be the same person coming out as you were when you went in.

Good on him for at least trying, he could have ignored his family history and lived a comfortable life in California, to confront that past and seek to help prevent it happening again is worthy of respect.

Yes, but the Germans have arguably been more successful than the Austrians who would like people to believe that Hitler was a German and Beethoven an Austrian (a joke that riffs on the unwillingness of many Austrians with their insular mind-set to come clean about their enthusiastic embrace of their native son). Arnie should be applauded for his recent humanistic gestures, now by his visiting Auschwitz and calling for reconciliation.

LOL. When he was "Governator" of California, Leftists positively spewed hate against Schwa-chan non stop. Now? They lionize him like they lionize...Lynn Cheney? LOL What is going on in the world?

Lenin used to call such people "Useful Idiots". You all might want to learn the meaning of the term...

Humans need to give sovereignty and respect freedom of all kinds of peaceful expression, otherwise holocaust could return to modern history too, just like Russia vs Ukrain war. Don't treaspass, give an arm length distance, say excuse me and move on.

A Jewish bitch not to bark and bother anybody or holocaust on them again.

Muslim bitches not to bark and bother anybody or holocaust on them again.

Leave us alone and we leave your stupid animal nature sort of people alone.

I am war ready with big Arnold guns when necessary.
