Quite true. History records no instance of the 6 million Jewish men, women, and children who quietly went to their death in the concentration camps as having been sued for assault and battery.

Here is an eyewitness account of -- as Shirer says -- a relatively minor mass execution carried out in the Ukraine on October 5, 1942. This was from a sworn affidavit by Hermann Graebe, the manager and engineer of a branch office in the Ukraine of a German construction firm. The Einsatz commandos supported by Ukrainian militia made use of the execution pits of Dubno to liquidate the town's 5,000 jews:

"...My foreman and I went directly to the pits. I heard the rifle shots in quick succession from behind one of the earth mounds. The people who had got off the trucks -- men, women and children of all ages -- had to undress upon the order of an S.S. man, who carried a riding or dog whip. They had to put down their clothes in fixed places, sorted according to shoes, top clothing and underclothing. I saw a heap of shoes of about 800 to 1,000 pairs, great piles of under-linen and clothing.

Without screaming or weeping these people undressed, stood around in family groups, kissed each other, said farewells and waited for a sign from another S.S. man, who stood near the pit, also with a whip in his hand. During the fifteen minutes that I stood near the pit I heard no complaint or plea for mercy...

An old woman with snow-white hair was holding a one-year-old child in her arms and singing to it and tickling it. The child was cooing with delight. The parents were looking on with tears in their eyes. The father was holding the hand of a boy about 10 years old and speaking to him softly; the boy was fighting his tears. The father pointed to the sky, stroked his head and seemed to explain something to him.

At that moment the S.S. man at the pit shouted something to his comrade. The latter counted off about twenty persons and instructed them to go behind the earth mound... I well remember a girl, slim and with black hair, who, as she passed close tome, pointed to herself and said: 'twenty-three years old.'

I walked around the mound and found myself confronted by a tremendous grave. People were closely wedged together and lying on top of each other so that only their heads were visible. Nearly all had blood running over their shoulders from their heads. Some of the people were still moving. Some were lifting their arms and turning their heads to show that they were still alive. The pit was already two-thirds full. I estimate that it contained about a thousand people. I looked for the man who did the shooting. He was an S.S. man, who sat at the edge of the narrow end of the pit, his feet dangling into the pit. He had a tommy gun on his knees and was smoking a cigarette.

The people, completely naked, went down some steps and clambered over the heads of the people lying there to the place to which the S.S. man directed them. They lay down in front of the dead or wounded people; some caressed those who were still alive and spoke to them in a low voice. Then I heard a series of shots. I looked into the pit and saw the that bodies were twitching or the heads lying already motionless on top of the bodies that lay beneath them. Blood was running from their necks.

The next batch was approaching already. They went down into the put, line themselves up against the previous victims and were shot."

And so it went, batch after batch. The next morning the German engineer returned to the site:

"I saw about thirty naked people lying near the put. Some of them were still alive... Later the jews still alive were ordered to throw the corpses into the pit. Then they themselves had to lie down in this to be shot in the neck... I swear before God that this is the absolute truth."

If justified by the circumstances, I will not hestitate to use what force is necessary to stop the threat to me or my family. If the OSA boys with the dangling cigarettes should think twice before attempting any act of violence or credible threat to me or my family.
