Ladino classes for children – how?

It is not only South Asian Indians who enroll their children in their respective language classes, whether Telugu or Gujarati or others.  Greeks in the US have routinely been offering Greek classes for their children in their Greek congregations for years.

One is left wondering why Sephardic Jews – at least temporarily – dropped their own language?  That becomes a question to mull over at home nd for congregations to begin discussing.  For what exists now is a glaring gap in the education of Sephardic youngsters, leaving them without the heart of their own culture.

How hard would it be to begin to correct this stark omission?

Not hard at all.

There are students taking college courses in Ladino who would be capable of offering beginning classes to little chldren if there were simple primers to follow, as inexpensive as the stapled primers used for beginning Hebrew.  And those college students could earn income from teaching the classes parents pay to enroll their children in, thus creating demand among college students for Ladino classes for themselves.

Studying Ladino would be a route to teaching children Ladino.  Children taking Ladino would be graced by having college and graduate students to teach them, making no demand on a congregation but bringing young people and children together.  Older Ladino speakers might come to contribute, uniting even more generations and creating a bond through the language.

And in terms of bonds, university students who have been studying Ladino could take up residencies in smaller communities in order that they, too, could benefit.   Those university students would find themselves especially welcome and the traveling students would not only  bring Ladino to the smaller Sephardic communities but connect communities through their stays.

Those creating the primers would be publishing books in Ladino.  Add those to the text books for university students and a small Sephardic industry would begin to grow.

What is the direction of all this?

College Ladino classes lead to university students as teachers for young Sephardic students, which leads to parents having an avenue for their young children to learn the language, which leads to children developing language skills that are unique and a source of pride and accomplishment, which leads to Sephardic kids beginning to converse with existing Ladino speakers, which leads to excitement in the entire Sephardic community as they do a stunning but, oddly, very do-able thing – bring Ladino back into the life of the community.

For overtime, the young teachers will become more skilled themselves, the primers will develop, and the young students will become fluent.

And paradoxically, with Ladino as a language, the world opens up to those young people the more deeply immersed in their own culture and history.

What is the alternative?  Sephardic parents could buy their children corporate T-shirts (“It’s not a party without a Sephardi”), hoping that and occasional boyas serve as culture, and meanwhile sigh at vulgar English slang.  In Ladino, is there a sneering use of  the word, “Whatever!” for teens to answer flippantly to their parents’ remarks, as happens so typically in English?  One can hope there isn’t.

* A note to those in congregations which include Persian Jews or others whose language would not be Ladino.  This route to teaching children family languages that are being lost is open to everyone, and there is no reason a congregation might not have more than one language class for children – all dependent on university students acquiring enough knowledge to use primers with the children.

Ladino classes for Sephardic children

Perhaps Sephardic parents would ask, “Why should I pay for my child to learn Ladino?”

The reasons are many, even if one discounts Ladino central role in what it actually means to have be part of a authentic Sephardic culture that goes beyond “Love me, I’m Sephardic” T-sihirts.

Put that main reason aside and move on to the benefits of your child speaking Ladino.

1.  Perhaps you might consider how fluency in Ladino would look on a college application.  Foreign language skills are always highly valued.  But to speak a medieval language would outstrip French and Spanish.  It would stand out.

2.  Speaking Ladino allows one to converse in Spanish, so it doesn’t isolate the speaker because the language is special.  Far from being a language that make it hard to speak to others, the entire Spanish speaking world would understand, and any Spanish speaker would be curious and interested.  Ladino open even more doors than Spanish, to meeting others.

3.  Speaking another language is good for thinking in general, for learning in general.  And if one is going to learn another language, why not study one’s own language?

4.  For parents, there would be satisfaction of knowing and telling friends and family, “My child is learning Ladino.”  It would not only be an accomplishment of the child’s but one of the culture.

5.  The children who learn Ladino automatically would have their own language between themselves and their Ladino speaking peers, which becomes a bond. And that bond is contributes to bonding a future Sephardic community.

6.  Learning Ladino would educate a Sephardic child in the basics of their own culture – with their simultaneously learning history about themselves and other places Sephardic Jews have lived,, picking up wisdom about living a good life, becoming imbued with the humor in the language, and altogether widening their world even as they become more closely connected to their own – truly their own – culture.

7.  Learning Ladino presents future job possibilities, since interest in unique cultures is growing.

8.  Ladino classes are already happening and the demand will spread.   Those who speak it will be in a wonderful position to teach it.

9.  Your children will thank you for the special gift you gave them.

10.  There would be many other reasons, but to culminate this list with a number, there is the undeniable fact that speaking Ladino – not to put too fine an English a spin on it – is simply “cool.”  It’s reason for pride.

The next question might be how this can happen.   A future post will discuss the possibilities and ease of implementation.

In the US and elsewhere some universities are now offering classes in Ladino.  This is a marvelous thing and arises out of work by people like Mathilda Koen-Sarano who created texts books for just this purpose.

But this fall, 2013, classes in Telugu are being offered to small children by the SouthAsian community, even though

1.  Telugu as a language, unlike Ladino, is not under threat of losing its native speakers.

2.  And unlike Ladino, there are millions of Telugu speakers in India and world wide.

Yet starting on September 15, 2013, classes in Telugubadi are being offered to Indian (South Asian) children living in the United States.  What’s more, those classes are not inexpensive.

For the kids ages 6 and above:

1.       Interested parents have to register/enroll their kids online … before Sept 15, 2013, with a fee of $350.00 ….

2.      All enrolled kids have to take an entrance exam on September 15th, which will place them in the respective classes of Pravesam and Prasunam after the evaluation.

The effort to have the children be fluent and proficient in Telugu, even its script, is taken quite seriously, because without such an effort, children of Telugu-speaking parents would lose much of the language and be poor speakers and perhaps non-readers of it.  Their own children would be less capable.

Here is an example of the work the children are doing.

How does this apply to Ladino?

Those teaching Telugu begin with this statement:

The greatest and most powerful gift a parent can give their children is to pass their language and culture.  Literacy in the mother tongue strengthens cultural identity and heritage. The mother tongue plays a very important role in developing thoughts, shaping experiences, exploring customs, and articulating values.

That statement applies to Ladino as strongly as it does Telugu, if not more so since Ladino is a language carrying traces of multiple cultures and other languages within it, because of the history of the Sephardim’s expulsion from Spain.  Ladino is the essence of Sephardic culture (as is true of other languages, just as the Telugu speakers recognize), yet it has been swamped in the US by a corporate, religious and ethnic culture none of which belong to Sephardic Jews.  That not-of-their-own culture is what Sephardic children are being brought up in, with English distinct from their own history and carrying none of its humor, values, wisdom.

So the question is why Sephardic Jews are waiting til college to take classes in Ladino, when Sephardic parents could be requesting classes in Ladino for their young children.

The next posts will discuss how this is not only possible but why it may be important to Sephardic parents who don’t even speak Ladino themselves.

To give a sense of the possibilities, here is a small child, only 5 years old, singing in Ladino.

Your thoughts create Ladino’s life

The way forward is inside you

The last two posts – on the Vatican planning the Holocaust and on UNICEF sterilizing and killing North African Sephardic children – were about who was really behind the terrible things that were done to us.  The Vatican – the very entity that invented the horror of the Inquisition, first hidden behind the Nazis and then behind the UN which it controls.

This has implications for Ladino even now, because out of ignorance of the UN’s connection to the Vatican, and of UNESCO’s specific eugenic intent, Sephardic Jews are actually working with UNESCO around the collection of our books in Ladino.  An agency committed to a singe world culture?  We do not need their help.  Why are we giving anyone access to our private works, especially a agency of the UN, related to the Vatican, which killed the writers and owners of those books?  Why?  No Sephardic Jews should be sharing anything with UNESCO or submitting the children to anything UNICEF is recommending.

The intent of the UN is a single world government and in the service of that, they want everything catalogued, every animal tagged, every person identified, in a Nazi-on-steroids effort at maximal control.  That may be their plan but Sephardic Jews have a lot of reasons not to be helpful to them.

You can see that truthful negative information is crucial if we are to free ourselves from potentially more danger to our culture.

But it is not only negative truths that have been kept been kept from us, but the largest possible positive knowledge and about our own power.

As you listen to the following video, notice that the critical material we needed was removed from early religious texts.  It was removed by the Catholic Church.  And as you listen, think whether attending a conference about “disappearing languages” in reference to Ladino, or even using the term “disappearing language” in connection to Ladino wouldn’t be a devastating mistake.

Please forgive all the “shocking” messages.  The true messages are very meaningful.

This article encourages you to reject any agency other than yourselves.  And to use words that do not threaten Ladino’s existence by concretizing its demise, disappearance, death, etc.

Hold a non-Vatican, non-UN conference.

Hold a  conference just for Sephardics and lovers of Ladino, celebrating Ladino.  No language used there about dead or disappearing or dying.  Instead, a great deal of joy at all that has been accomplished and pleasure in all the good people.  Then,  take time to sit quietly there, sharing a wonderful feeling state about Ladino (and a feeling state shared is raised to the power of the number of people involved).  What state might that be?  The one that arises in picturing a child greeting an adult in Ladino.

That feeling state holds the key.

UNICEF’s role in sterilizing and killing Sephardic children

The last post indicated that the Vatican was responsible for the murder of Sephardic Jews on Rhodes, in Salonika and elsewhere at the very end of WWII, in a last minute sweep.  Only 5 years later, 100,000 Sephardic Jewish children whose families had escaped the Nazi sweep of Sephardim from the Balkans and Greek Islands, were massively irradiated upon entering Israel.  The xrays – 3,500 times stronger than “normal” – sterilized the children and of those who did not die soon after, most have died early over time, from cancers.

Are the two horrors within so short a time, related and purposeful?

In understanding that the Vatican planned the Holocaust in exquisite detail, we are left with the reality that the Sephardic Jews in the Mediterranean basin who were swept up for mass extermination, were killed by the exact same entity that had tortured and killed part of their community and driven the rest into exile from Spain 450 years earlier.

The perversity of this elimination of the involvement of the Vatican is made even more perverse by the insistence of the Vatican on describing the mass murder by fire of over 18 million innocent people–The Holocaust.

The word Holocaust is oldest theologically correct term still used in relation to the official doctrine of satanists in the burning of people alive. The word “Holocaust” is at least as old as the 3rd Century BCE and comes from the ancient Greek word holokauston, meaning “a completely (holos) burnt (kaustos) sacrificial offering”, or “a burnt sacrifice offered to God”.

Therefore, by insisting the word “Holocaust” be used, the Vatican has hidden its complete complicity in such absolute evil and mass murder in the plain sight of the entire planet, with no one questioning its motive for such a word.

One of the first sets of evidence to be destroyed by Allied command were the long metal stretchers used to carry people to the ovens—stretchers with locks on them so that a person chained on the stretcher could not free themselves.

We also know now, as well, that the Vatican has been deeply involved in child torture and child sacrifice and that it controls the UN.


The big question about the irradiation of the Sephardic children from North Africa has been who ordered it.

“The primary agent behind these ringworm eradication operations was UNICEF,[17] which even assisted in the purchase of x-ray machines for this purpose. It even supplied the two x-ray machines that operated in the immigrant intake and processing facility for immigrants in Israel – Shaar Haaliyah south of Haifa.” (Citation from an article that minimizes the number of children involved and attempts  to normalize the procedure, though does not address rads of 35,000 times the normal amount.)

UNICEF, the part of the UN that deals with children, was responsible. From their website.

UNICEF is the driving force that helps build a world where the rights of every child are realized. We have the global authority to influence decision-makers, and the variety of partners at grassroots level to turn the most innovative ideas into reality.  That makes us unique among world organizations, and unique among those working with the young.

And UNESCO is also part of the UN (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation) so is also under the control of the Vatican. It works closely with UNICEF, especially around issues of education and culture.  The irradiation of the Sephardic children occurred primarily in school settings, using educational staff against a particular culture.

UNESCO, established in 1945 immediately at the end of the war, is explicitly founded on eugenics.  Both time-wise and philosophically, it picks up where Hitler left off.

As the first Director of UNESCO,, Sir Julian Sorell Huxley (1887-1975) wrote a paper entitled UNESCO Its Purpose and Its Philosophy (1946) [1] in which he outlined his vision for the newly created international organisation ….

Huxley, an evolutionary biologist, humanist, and ardent internationalist held many titles including: …. Vice-President (1937-44) and President (1959-62) of the British Eugenics Society. He …. also coined the term “transhumanism” (as a means of disguising eugenics) …. Huxley also received many awards including …. the Lasker Foundation in the category Planned Parenthood – World Population (1959) ….

One sees quite clearly the continuation of the Nazi philosophy of eugenics, spoken by the man who founded UNESCO.

“Our first task must be to clarify the notion of desirable and undesirable directions of evolution, for on this will depend our attitude to human progress – to the possibility of progress in the first place, and then to its definition.” ….

“But once more a new and more efficient method of [evolutionary] change is available. …. Thus the struggle for existence that underlies natural selection is increasingly replaced by conscious selection ….

Brent Jessop, the author of the article on UNESCO (UN Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization) being cited here, underscores Huxley’s UNESCO philosophy.  The genocidal intent that the world thought had been eradicated with the end of WWII turns out to have been the founding basis of the UN’s agency for “education”.  Jessop points out:

In the philosophy outlined above [Huxley’s], there is a lot of high sounding idealistic language about equality. For example the quote below.

“Further, that humanism must clearly be a world humanism, both in the sense of seeking to bring in all the peoples of the world, and of treating all peoples and all individuals within each people as equals in terms of human dignity, mutual respect, and educational opportunity.” – 7

Of course, for eugenicists like Huxley, some are more equal than others.

“There are instances of biological inequality which are so gross that they cannot be reconciled at all with the principle of equal opportunity. Thus low-grade mental defectives cannot be offered equality of educational opportunity, nor are the insane equal with the sane before the law or in respect of most freedoms. However, the full implications of the fact of human inequality have not often been drawn and certainly need to be brought out here, as they are very relevant to Unesco’s task. […]

“Still more important, any such generalisations will give us a deeper understanding of the variations of human nature, and in doing so will enable us correctly to discount the ideas of men of this or that type. […]

“There remains the second type of inequality. This has quite other implications; for, whereas variety is in itself desirable, the existence of weaklings, fools, and moral deficients cannot but be bad. It is also much harder to reconcile politically with the current democratic doctrine of equality. In face of it, indeed, the principle of equality of opportunity must be amended to read “equality of opportunity within the limits of aptitude.” ” – 18

UNICEF appears to have been following the education and cultural principles of UNESCO.  It singled out one group, a less educated, darker emigrant one, from another fairer group of children who came from European educational backgrounds.

UNICEF had North African Sephardic children sorted out from their Ashkenazi peers.

“I was in class and the men came to take us on a tour. They asked our names. The Ashkenazi children were told to return to their seats. The dark children were put on the bus.”

UNICEF had to know it was hurting the children since they were screaming in agony:

…. the Moroccan lady describe[d] what getting 35,000 times the dose of allowable x-rays in her head feels like. “I screamed make the headache go away. Make the headache go away. Make the headache go away. But it never went away.”

But UNICEF not only didn’t stop be continued for years, having thousands of Sephardic children burned with radiation,

UNICEF did not do this by accident since it kept this “program” going from 1948 to 1960 though children were clearly in intense pain and many were obviously dying:

“6,000 of the children died shortly after their doses were given, while many of the rest developed cancers that killed thousands over time and are still killing them now. While living, the victims suffered from disorders such as epilepsy, amnesia, Alzheimer’s disease, chronic headaches and psychosis.”

Of those who survived, many were sterilized by the radiation.  It is important to note that finding a sterilization method that could be disguised as a health treatment was a prime aim of the Nazi experiments at Auschwitz.

“Auschwitz was the largest and one of the most infamous of the camps and the site of numerous ‘medical’ experiments. This historical study uses primary source documents obtained from archives in England and Germany to describe one type of experiment carried out at Auschwitz — the sterilization experiments…

“Dr Adolf Pokorny, a Nazi physician wrote to Himmler in October 1941: “Should we succeed in obtaining a method, permitting as quickly as possible to sterilize people without their knowledge, then we would get hold of a new, most effective weapon.”

The following material reads as a Nazi eugenics text but it is, in fact, the original and bedrock principles of the UN agency for children, UNESCO, as laid out by its founder:

“Biological inequality is, of course, the bedrock fact on which all of eugenics is predicated. …. But the inequality of level or standard is undesirable, and the other primary aim of eugenics should be the raising of the mean level of all desirable qualities. While there may be dispute over certain qualities, there can be none over a number of the most important, such as a healthy constitution, a high innate general intelligence, or a special aptitude such as that for mathematics or music.

At the moment, it is probable that the indirect effect of civilisation is dysgenic instead of eugenic; and in any case it seems likely that the dead weight of genetic stupidity, physical weakness, mental instability, and disease-proneness, which already exist in the human species, will prove too great a burden for real progress to be achieved. Thus even though it is quite true that any radical eugenic policy will be for many years politically and psychologically impossible, it will be important for Unesco to see that the eugenic problem is examined with the greatest care, and that the public mind is informed of the issues at stake so that much that now is unthinkable may at least become thinkable.” – 21

That is, Huxley faces the fact that what he was suggesting – eugenics as the door to murder – was politically and even psychologically unfeasible to accomplish at the time,  but he had hopes that UNESCO could one day be open about its intent to destroy “the dead weight” of children it had singled out as inferior.  This was to be done in the interest of intelligence, mathematics, music.

Funding also came from the US:

In 1951, the director general of the Israeli Health Ministry, Dr. Chaim Sheba, flew to America and returned with seven x-ray machines, supplied to him by the American army.  [UNICEF claims on its website, in its very introduction, that it hasthe global authority to influence decision-makers and the variety of partners at grassroots level to turn the most innovative ideas into reality.  That makes us unique among world organizations, and unique among those working with the young.”  Was the US such a partner, asked by UNICEF and thus by the Vatican, to contribute these machines, to be used against Sephardic children?]

They were to be used in a mass atomic experiment with an entire generation of Sephardi youths to be used as guinea pigs. Every Sephardi child was to be given 35,000 times the maximum dose of x-rays through his head. For doing so, the American government paid the Israeli government 300 million Israeli liras a year. The entire Health budget was 60 million liras. The money paid by the Americans is equivalent to billions of dollars today.

The film made it perfectly plain that this operation was no accident. The dangers of x-rays had been known for over forty years. We read the official guidelines for x-ray treatment in 1952. The maximum dose to be given a child in Israel was .5 rad. There was no mistake made. The children were deliberately poisoned.

The central involvement of UNICEF in the sterilizing and deaths and diseases of Sephardic children is without doubt.

The dates below, the political philosophy expressed, and the putting in a power at the UN a Nazi war criminal, appear to indicate a movement of Nazi programs from Germany as it was collapsing, into the UN and its agencies.  Shortly after those agencies were set up, North African Sephardic Jewish children were brains were burned with lethal levels of radiation

In 1944 the Nazis arranged the shipping out of the Mediterranean of tens of thousands of Sephardic Jews, people whose relatives had survived the Vatican’s Spanish Inquisition and lived safely under the Ottomas for hundreds of years,  to Aushwitz and other Nazi death camps for a Holocaust (defined as a sacrificial burning – arranged in great detail by the Vatican).

This was done under the direction of Nazi officer Kurt Waldheim.

The World Jewish Congress announced [in 1986] that it has obtained secret German war-time documents linking Kurt Waldheim directly to the deportation of Greek Jews to the Auschwitz death camp in 1944.

The documents, located at the federal archives in Freiburg, West Germany, show that the deportation of 2,500 Jewish men, women and children from the islands of Crete and Rhodes were carried out on the instructions of Waldheim’s intelligence headquarters unit, known as the “IC/AO” section. Waldheim was the deputy chief intelligence officer of the section.

The documents, the first to connect Waldheim directly to the deportation of Jews, contradict his repeated assertions that he knew nothing of the deportations at the time. Last March 7 he said in a cable to WJC president Edgar Bronfman that he had “never been informed” about them.

From the New York Times.

… he was a lieutenant in army intelligence, attached to brutal German military units that executed thousands of Yugoslav partisans and civilians and deported thousands of Greek Jews to death camps from 1942 to 1944. Waldheim lied about his wartime service in the Balkans, maintaining that his military career ended in 1942 after he was wounded in a battle on the Russian front.

But more than four decades later, his assertions were disputed by witnesses, photographs, medals and commendations given to Waldheim, and by his own signature on documents linked to massacres and deportations.

…. By early 1948, the UN War Crimes Commission listed him as a suspected war criminal subject to trial. Yet no government pressed to bring Waldheim to account or even to reveal his unsavory history.

The war ended in May 1945.

The UN was founded immediately afterward, in October of 1945.

Later in 1945, UNESCO, an agency of the UN founded explicitly on eugenics – the Nazi philosophy of genetic superiority, seeking the elimination of those with inferior genes – was established as a “respected” international body, thus inserting Nazi doctrine into the UN around issues of education, science and culture.

In 1947, UNICEF, the UN’s agency over the world’s children, was founded and began working closely with UNESCO.

In 1948, UNICEF directed Israel to begin an irradiation program using 35,000 times the normal amount of rads (thus a holocaust – a burning ) on the children of yet more remnants of the Spanish Inquisition, killing many, maiming and causing life-long diseases in the others.  That holocaust went on until 1960.  Anyone familiar with Mengele’s “medical experiments” may recognize the same viciousness in what was done to these children, as well as the disinterest in their pain or deaths.  One might surmise that this was being watched and recorded as an experiment, no different from Mengele’s except having moved into the public sphere, under a “humanitarian agency” and was to be regarded as a medical treatment, its use as a test of radiation on children hidden, and its sterilizing impact on a whole generation of children invisible,  exactly what the Nazis had been working on in Auschwitz for years.

In 1972 Kurt Waldheim, Nazi war criminal, was appointed as the fourth Secretary-General of the United Nations and served two terms, until 1981.

Sephardic Jews have not seen the possibility that their deaths in the Holocaust in Europe may be connected to the soon to begin irradiation of Mizrahi Sephardic children in Israel.   The guise of those killing Sephardic Jews may have changed form from a monstrous Hitler to a humanitarian UN, but both appear to have been controlled by the Vatican, which has killed Sephardic Jews in the Inquisition and made them refugees from their homeland, 450 years before.  It may all be one related story line, rather than many, or as the website with information on the Vatican and the Holocaust is named, One Evil.

One can only hope it has value in stopping yet more to harm to the world.  The connection of the UN to the Vatican, to Waldheim and to eugenics is a matter of serious concern.  Currently, UNICEF is attempting to undermine free speech rights of parents, doctors and scientists who are discussing the safety of certain treatments for children.  Of significance, given the Vatican and Nazi connections of the UN, the questions that UNICEF is trying to smother concern the treatment that the Nazis were experimenting with at Auschwitz for use at doctor appointments, a treatment in which it is impossible to tell what is included.  (“Adolf Pokorny, a Nazi physician wrote to Himmler in October 1941: “Should we succeed in obtaining a method, permitting as quickly as possible to sterilize people without their knowledge, then we would get hold of a new, most effective weapon.”

Caring people might want to look more closely at anything the UN and its agencies (UNESCO, UNICEF, WHO, etc.) are promoting in the name of “helping.”  Right now, UNESCO, the agency of the UN with a declared eugenic agenda, is getting involved with Sephardic Jews around Ladino. 

The Israeli government and private foundations are making efforts to rescue and promote Ladino. Israel has declared both Yiddish and Ladino to be endangered languages, and it has established the National Authority for Ladino and its culture. Israeli government programs include training for dozens of high-school teachers in Ladino.

Private groups have begun to move, too. The Ma’ale Adumim Institute for Ladino, located a short drive from Jerusalem, is trying to collect and catalog all Ladino books in order to preserve Judeo-Spanish heritage. It has added 300 volumes over the past three years, and its director is actively trying to locate more Ladino books.

In 2002, the United Nations got involved. UNESCO, or the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization sponsored an international conference on Judeo-Spanish language and culture, held in Paris in June 2002.

(Emphasis added.)

Clearly, Sephardic Jewry is not a culture the UNESCO/UNICEF has valued.  Quite the opposite.  Sephardic Jews need to understand their own history  and take it seriously.  UNESCO’s eugenics commitment and and the UN’s connection to the Nazis and to the Vatican which killed so many of us, in both the 1500s and the 20th century are real.  Rather than be taken in by the “support” of an agency of the UN, Sephardics need to recognize the danger of sharing information with or being financially dependent in any way on agencies that refer to

“the dead weight of genetic stupidity, physical weakness, mental instability, and disease-proneness,”

while it’s brother agency, UNICEF, has dark children called out of classrooms to be mentally destroyed with radiation.  Eugenics is embedded in UNESCO and Sephardics are naive to think it is safe to deal with them or that they care about democracy.  The following Huxley quote about the establishment of UNESCO is a direct appeal to totalitarian (fascist) control.

“the existence of weaklings, fools, and moral deficients cannot but be bad. It is also much harder to reconcile politically with the current democratic doctrine of equality. In face of it, indeed, the principle of equality of opportunity must be amended to read “equality of opportunity within the limits of aptitude.”

We need to bring back Ladino on our own, NOT in concert with an international agency connected to those who helped kill our relatives and destroy Ladino in the first place.

With apologies to the Sephardic community for bringing up so much pain.   May it help open more doors to healing.  May it help protect the Sephardic community from more harm.

Here is the documentary on what was done to North African Sephardic children under the direction of UNICEF.  May their souls be blessed.  May the survivors feel that they are not alone and the crime against them one is known to the whole the Sephardic community which holds them and those who died, as precious, and sees increasingly clearly those who harmed them.

The Vatican intricately planned the Holocaust

This blog was started to encourage Sephardic Jews, the people who faced the Vatican’s Inquisition in Spain and were then expelled in 1492, to realize how precious their language – Ladino – is to their identity and culture.  The fundamental reason that Ladino is threatened with dying out is the Nazi round-up in the last months of WWII of thousands of Sephardic Jews who had escaped the Inquisition and had been settled for hundreds of years across the Balkans to Turkey, in what had once been the safety of the Ottoman Empire, away from Catholic Europe. The relatives of those early refugees from the Inquisition, the ones who went east, were sent to Auschwitz and murdered there.  Zionism pushed others to move to Israel where the language has been all but lost to assimilation, as it has in all the places to which this group of people moved.  For the Jews of Spain who went west in 1492 and ended up in South and Central America, the Vatican set up the Inquisition there as well, burning Sephardic Jews at the stake.   That inquisition continued into the 20th century.

 Encouraging Sephardic Jews to hold onto Ladino has been the purpose of this blog.  The dark history of responsibility for the deaths of Ladino’s speakers was not the point, though it has felt that keeping the language alive, is a way of honoring those people, in some way keeping their beings alive through continuing the sounds they spoke and heard.  The intent was not to focus on history, something has come to light that makes a focus on history essential right now.

Someone in the Sephardic language community (Ladinokomunitika) sent an email mentioning that the new Pope had extended good wishes to Jews around the world for the New Year.

El Papa Francisco saludó a los judíos en su Año Nuevo

El Papa Francisco saludó a los judíos en su Año Nuevo

This was disturbing since it has been known for sometime that the Vatican was complicit with the Nazis in World War II.

Pope Pius the XII was pope at the time.

It is …. a matter of public record that the Pope had sided not only with Mussolini but also with the Nazis who committed the holocaust against six million Jews. The big question, then, is why, despite Pope PiusXII’s well known record, the Vatican prefers to ignore the crimes he has been associated with and raise him to sainthood …. ?
A) The Catholic church hierarchy, acting under Vatican orders, played the decisive role in making Hitler the dictator of Germany.
B) Subsequently, the Catholic hierarchy was active in Nazi movements outside Germany, for example in the Balkans, where the church was the institutional base of the Nazi puppet State of Croatia.
C) Although at Yad Vashem, in the year 2000, Pope John Paul II described the Nazis as having “a Godless ideology,” in 1933, when it mattered, the Vatican ordered German Catholics to love, honor, obey and protect the Nazis. 
But these are mere details and do not touch the reality and depth of the Vatican’s central role in the Holocaust.  To understand that role, however, requires understanding some deeply disturbing things first, including the connection between the Vatican, international child trafficking, child rape, and child and adult sacrifice.  The previous pope is in hiding in the Vatican now because he is wanted for such crimes against humanity and would be arrested if he left.  The current pope is also being charged with crimes. 

On August 4 the Brussels Declaration of the ITCCS (International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State) proclaimed the Roman Catholic Church to be a transnational criminal body under international law, and “the Italian parties agreed that the time has arrived for “decisive political action on behalf of all of the victims of the papacy.”  (see, August 3)

On Septemberi 1, the pope released his Apostolic Letter which is meant to put the Church outside the reach of all other courts and ….

Even worse, anyone who reports any of these crimes within the church now faces even stiffer punishment for doing so.  The Letter states. 

“I establish that the competent Judicial authorities of Vatican City shall also exercise penal jurisdiction over crimes committed against the security, fundamental interests or the patrimony of the Holy See.” 

Penal jurisdiction means the power to prosecute and jail.  And the same jurisdiction applies as well to any leakage of information from the church, including standing church laws like Crimen Sollicitationas, the reporting of child rape and trafficking. 

Let me say that again:  it is a crime under Catholic law to report the rape of a child. 

I am the State, declared Louis the 14th of France.  But Pope Francis has now proclaimed, I am the Law. 

From Would you Trust Al Capone to Police himself? Unmasking the latest Papal Deception: A Critique of the “Apostolic Letter”

In Canada alone, the Vatican was involved in the genocide of over 50,000 Native children, many of them raped, tortured and murdered and it was in response to arrests warrants brought to the Vatican that the previous pope resigned and went into hiding within the Vatican walls.  Plans to hold the Vatican accountable were recently driven further forward by the eyewitness account of child sacrifice and torture

But while it appears that the crimes the Vatican is hiding are “only” child trafficking, child rape and human sacrifice, in fact, the most crucial things they must hide is their responsibility for the Holocaust and more importantly , why they wanted it.  To be able to grasp the scope of the evil involved, one must understand that the Catholic Church has been involved for centuries in human sacrifice, with some of it occurring in the Vatican itself.  But those sacrifices have been occurring in other places as well, attended by major leaders in the world who are controlled by the Vatican.  Bohemian Grove in California is one of the sites and attended by  world leaders and US presidents.  There, an effigy of the “God” Moloch has been erected and eye witnesses have said that children and adults have been sacrificed to it.

They conduct satanic rituals there.

With this background, it is now possible to introduce evidence of the Vatican’s central role in the Holocaust. 

Most of what follows comes from One Evil, a site with copious amounts of evidence, only a small bit of which is included below. a

The Holocaust – the mass sacrifice of over eighteen million innocent Protestants, Orthodox Christians, ethnic Jews and minority groups by burning several million of them alive in ovens in Poland and Russia less than seventy years ago by Catholic dictators Adolf Hitler S.J. and Fr Joseph Stalin S.J. represents the largest and most expensive act of mass human sacrifice in history.  

…. The effort to efficiently sacrifice the largest number of non-Catholics in 24 x 7 purpose-built ovens [24 hours a day, 7 days a week] was a massive logistical effort- not the least of which required the complete genealogy analysis of most of Europe. 

If not for the genius of fledgling American technology companies such as Innovative Business Machines, who created the first computers for the task of confirming who were to be saved and who were to be slaughtered, if not for the hundreds of millions of dollars in research by pharmacetical companies into advance nerve agents to render people unconscious in “gas” chambers for easy transport to the ovens, then the plan would have been impossible.

But most of all, if not for the willing and complicit support by Allied leaders not to interfere with the Vatican project, the Nazis managed to kill more innocent people by fire in 1944 and 1945 than all the other years combined.

…. At the end of the war, the first thing that the Allies did under Eisenhower was pull down and dig up as much incriminating evidence as possible. Many of the oven blocks—ahead of any other buildings—were quickly dismantled and destroyed in many camps. Some camps, such as the only human sacrifice camp dedicated to burning children (Lodz) was virtually wiped from history.  

By the time the time the Nuremberg Trials started (secretly directed by Georgetown University Jesuit Priest Edmund Walsh), many of the key Nazis behind the Holocaust were given fake deaths, or safely transported to new countries and new identities, the total number sacrificed was set at the “acceptable” level of six million and no mention of the Roman Catholic Cult, the Roman Catholic statues at the camps , nor the Occult was ever officially mentioned at the trials of hundreds of guards and officers. 

In appreciating that the Holocaust was not about killing Jews, but about killing non-Catholics, one can begin to see the Vatican hidden behind what happened.  And we can start to see how valuable and clever a focus on a “Jewish Holocaust” was to cover up the truth.

“We did not know”, became the official line of denial fed to the public of the winning side. Even evidence was conveniently “found” calling it the “Final Solution to the Jewish Question” in a former Gestapo Headquarters. The window of sacrifice was cut short from 1939 to 1945 to just three years (1943-1945) to minimize the complicity of Allied leaders. Yet of all the terrible and criminal lies created by the CFR-led American military and RIIA-led British military it was the argument that people were gassed to death because it was “cheaper” that remains the final and lasting insult to some of the darkest days of human history.

Twenty million people could have been murdered the same as many other dictators had done throughout in history, simply by mass murder and burial or the bodies disposed by creating great pits as was done during the plagues of Europe hundreds of years before which killed ten times more people. 

Yet the evil charade, that the Holocaust was merely a hatefully racist, expedient, Nazi system of “cost saving” extermination, remains the accepted view—an absurdity that defies all the evidence to the contrary. That the main architects of this terrible period remain protected to this day is a mockery to the memory of every single Jew, every Russian Orthodox, every Greek Orthodox, every Protestant, every Baptist and every person sacrificed in the ovens. 

The intense and insane anti-Semitic, anti-minority hatred prior to WWII was orchestrated by the Jesuits. 

When it became sufficiently pervasive ….

most Catholic Dictators were comfortable with the idea that the public would not erupt in rebellion if minorities were to be “safely” removed from society. 

However, a powerful new enemy appeared at the same time against the propaganda of the Jesuits spurning hatred and fear—Pope Pius XI himself. The Pope had become a fervent critic of the hatefully racist policies now being carried out by Roman Catholic Dictators thanks to Fr. Ledochowski S.J. and the hardliners.

The final straw came in 1939, when the Pope planned to issue a Papal Bull effectively making it a grave sin for any Catholic to act against another human being based on their creed, skin colour or political beliefs. The Jesuit superior general intercepted the Bull before it could be promulgated as new church law and a few days the Pope was dead, another victim of the Company’s “poison cup.”

A few weeks later, Pacelli was made Pope. A few months later the Jesuit-controlled, Roman Catholic dictators started World War II. 

Now the proof becomes visual. 

Historically, Geometry and shapes of power have also played a vital part in the planning and ceremony of real satanists. No shape is considered more powerful for the harnessing of negative energy to one’s human will than the Pentagram.

To form a Pentagram of supreme evil, Pope Pius XII and the Black Pope Ledochowski would need at least five sacrifice camps- one for each point of the star. But a system with just five camps would arouse immediate suspicion as to its nature. Instead, the human sacrifice camps and their precise geographic location was deliberately masked in a seemingly random and opportunistic landscape of work camps and other death camps.

But at the heart of this complex system of detention camps, torture camps and sacrifice camps remained the Pentagram of Pope Pius ….

It has been believed for millenia that just as the Earth possesses electro magnetic lines, that there also exist spiritual lines of energy — or “ley”lines. The same belief exists with the most ancient and powerful of Vatican and Jesuit satanists- hence the use of geometric systems of power. 

Therefore, if the Pentagram is to be believed the work of Pope Pius XII, the hardline satanists of the Curia and the Jesuits- then the ley lines should be a masterpiece of evil-unrivalled in the attempt to channel negative energy, connecting all the major favoured satanic centres at the time (1930’s). 

One of the lasting anomalies unique to the all the camps of the Pentagram (yet uncommon to most other pre-fabricated death and labour camps of the Nazis ), were their geometric layout – not the buildings, but the shapes formed by clusters of buildings and fences. 

The answer is breathtakingly simple- if you are going to sacrifice innocent people to an ancient satanic god, then the place in which this evil act is done should ideally be a “Temple”. 

The evidence that the Vatican pentagram is for satanic power, shows up not only in the pentagram formation but in the actual physical layout of the five significant death camps, each repeating the layout of historic temples.

…. consider for the moment the following comparison starting with Treblinka Vatican Human Sacrifice Temple Complex at the top of the Pentagram. Here you have a camp – not designed as a rectangle as so many have incorrectly stated – but a shape more resembling the Key Temple complex of the ancient city of Ur

Moving south East to the next point of the Jesuit-Vatican Pentagram we come to the Sobibor Vatican Human Sacrifice Temple Complex, which reflected the essential design and location of key satanic temples of ancient Babylon.

Travelling further South we come to the Janowska Vatican Human Sacrifice Temple Complex which in design closely resembled the ancient Temple mount of Jerusalem during the days of the Sadducees.

Now travelling West we come to the vast Auschwitz-Birkenau Vatican Human Sacrifice Temple Complex which resembles the greatest of all ancient satanic temple complexes- the Temple of Baalbek– the home of Moloch.  

Then to Lodz, we have the ghetto carved out of the city in an exact shape of the Island of Tyre- the capital of the Sarmatian/Samaritan – city state empire, falsely claimed as the Neo-Assyrian Empire. The same city run by a handful of elite priestly families over 2,600 years ago with the rest of the inhabitants tattoed in ink as slaves from birth to death- working in the slave factories of Tyre. 

The camps of the Pentagram are without question designed to be spiritual replicas of the ancient temples to the satanic gods of the Vatican and the demon worshipping Sarmatian/Samaritans.

As the ley lines of the death pentagram are extended out, they each cross through or terminate in places with a history of Satanic rituals, and thus describe an immense matrix plotted to link together extremes of human suffering, terror and death.

The vibrational energy produced by terror is real as is the vibrational energy of love or caring, though they are quite different vibrations.  Love, in fact, is many times stronger.

We generate an immense energy field with our consciousness.  And when we are focused on love, amazing things happen.  But the vibrating energy field we generate has been used parasitically by them to harm us, rather than by us to free ourselves ….

We have the power, more than the power, to bring down the vibrational prison walls if we understand even the basics of how it all works. …. [What they are doing is structured [intentionally] to generalte incoherent heart energy and low vibrational thought and emotion such as fear, stress, anger, frustration, depression ….” 

They work to achieve it in controlling what we feel and focus on.  Think of the Colorado shooting  (now considered a staged event to frighten the public to override the 2nd Amendment.  [This is an early step in a UN plan to achieve the total disarmament of the American population.  The UN is run by the Vatican, and total disarmament of the public is what Hitler ordered before the Holocaust.]


Focus of our attention to elicit emotions is primary in generating the desired effect.  The militarized Olympics arranged for billions of people to direct their attention in unison to the bizarre opening “ceremonies” that included children in hospital beds cowering beneath a giant demon.  The scenes are reminiscent of the satanic worship at Bohemian Grove, or of pedophilia with a display of little children in terror in beds at night (!)

While we may not be aware that our feelings have power, one can sees an example of the effect of feelings on water, here. 


The Vatican pentagram was laid out to collect negative energies, with Rome both as the main terminus and with the most connections to the other sources of terror.  The connectors  multiply the energy.


What is the largest most powerful energy “machine” ever built? If you said the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) –the 27 Km wide (17 mi) energy particle accelerator beneath the France-Swiss border — then you would be wrong. The Nazis in collaboration with other Vatican-satanic groups built an energy machine seventy years ago more than fifteen (15) times the size of the LHC –so powerful it changed the course of history –and it is still operational today! 

One of the purposes of this article it to provide this to them (those who still doubt) – clearly and without embellishment so there can be no doubt who was responsible for WWII and who remains firmly in control of the world now under the modern brand – the New World Order (“NWO”). 

Yet there is a second and more urgent purpose of this third article — to understand the implications of the Vatican creating the largest “energy machine” in history. For if what we have been shown is indeed a machine- designed for the purpose of channelling the enormous negative energy formed through sacrificing over 18 million people in precise locations, then technically when did this machine get “turned off”? 

 It is one thing for the Allies of the Vatican to tear down the death camps — the Human Sacrifice Temples and hide evidence –but a massive spiritual “energy machine” is not just about putting innocents into a perpetual state of torment, it is also about keeping them there.  

At stake then is not merely the discovery of some supremely evil system which has been in force to keep certain satanic families and the Vatican led “New World Order” in power, it is the proposition that they continue to entrap tens of millions of souls in their machine – yet to find freedom. 

With the greatest respect for their memory, we hope you will read this article and consider the function and nature of this machine — and how it might finally be turned off. 

This blog post has relied on only a tiny fragment of the the stunning accumulation of logic and evidence at and everyone should be encouraged to read them all, as they turn world history on its head but in a way that offers the world hope to stop wars and threats to humanity. 

As a final message to Sepharadic Jews, the readers of the blog, one piece of supporting evidence of the truth of’s thesis, concerns Kurt Waldheim.  He was the Nazi officer in charge of the Eastern Mediterranean, and was responsible for the shipping of Sephardic Jews to Auschwitz’s in the very last months of WWII.  Many years later, he was proposed as a head of the UN and there was objection based on his known Nazi background and history, but he received the post regardless.  Now, in knowing that the Vatican sought the Holocaust and the deaths of millions of human beings, including the Sephardic Jews swept up by Waldheim, refugees from the Vaticans’ previous horrors, and that the Vatican controls the UN, it now makes sense that Waldheim became head of it. 

The voluminous information from One Evil makes it apparent that the Vatican, which caused the 15th century Inquisition in Spain with Torquemada burning victims at the stake, and  burning Sephardic Jews at the stake in the Catholic Americas , devised and was behind the Holocaust as well, its second Inquisition.  Once again it burned people alive, this time using ovens – this time burning people to death in the millions. 

So, perhaps the Jewish community would not appreciate New Year’s wishes from the new pope given his part in the Argentinian genocide, his protecting child rapists and murderers, and his being part of a “machine” that is till operating today.  Perhaps the victims of the Inquisition and of the Holocaust might instead, on this New Year, wish to be aware of upcoming plans to hold the Vatican accountable for its unspeakable crimes against humanity, including themselves, native peoples, Protestants, the disabled, gypsies, etc.

In this New Year May the evidence at One Evil help support the legal work at (The International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State) to free the world from the Vatican and the centuries of global nightmare it has inflicted on us all.  And may the work of be valuable to us in helping the souls of our dead find peace. 

This material is so huge and unsettling that it seems important to end with something loving and human, so, here is a repeat of Moshe Saul’s loving New Year’s wishes for the Sephardic community in its precious language, Ladino.

Radio Ladino


(Art work on this blog is copyrighted.)

In a conversation with Rachel Amado Bortnick, she mentioned having tried to have a chat group there were technological problems, and was too hard to deal with.

Ah ha.   If you are going to bring back and language, and you are having trouble doing so, the “not-working” places are where things are very rich.  Those are the stuck places.

Clearly, speakers need to speak with each other.  But more than that, speakers yearn to speak to each other. 

So, there is something that could be done immediately to significantly boost the regular speaking of Ladino internationally.

What would that be?  A regular radio show in which people can call in from anywhere and talk to the host or guests.    Or just enjoy listening.

Blogtalk radio offers a very inexpensive online radio program for anyone who wants to start a radio show.  There could be an international Sephardic radio show up and running in a few weeks.

And more, once it’s apparent that there can be such a show, there is no reason not to put it on many days a week and have those days be for different functions.

Here is a potential schedule:

Monday for three hours in the evening, Ladino speakers chat like crazy.

Tuesday for three hours, there would be a program to begin to encourage Sephardic communities around the world to listen and to use a little Ladino.  It would be meant to make people comfortable and bit by bit to introduce some Ladino so hearing it becomes normal.  Every communities could take turns being guests on the show (or hosting) and they could speak in English or French or Italian or whatever other language, about all that was happening in their community, letting others know what they doing and showing off a bit.  A kind of Sephardic advertising.  During part of those three hours, Sephardic music could be played and news of births and marriages, etc. would be announced but those announcement would be given in Ladino.  Each of those posting would be encouraged to write their own very short announcement in Ladino (for which they could scramble to get help).   Family members and synagogue members would be very proud to hear these formal announcement in Ladino.   In addition, anyone in the community who wanted to send greetings or good wishes or get well wishes to their family and friends, either in town or elsehere, could do so on the radio if they did it in Ladino.  It might be only a single sentence but it would be an achievement.  This program would be meant to pull in each community and for them to enjoy hearing themselves on the radio and to see who had the guts to speak Ladino, even for 30 seconds.  If a child or teen were going to read a sentence or more in Ladino, there is no question that aunts and uncles and grandparents and friends would be notified and listening eagerly for the child or teen’s big moment. Perhaps people would get a little certificate congratulating them on joining the community of those keeping Ladino alive.

Wednesday for there hours in the evening, there would be a beginning Ladino class.  It might be run by Gloria Ascher or Mathilda Koen-Sarano or Rachael Amado Bortnick or any of the many young people who are studying Ladino now and would be willing to conduct a beginners class.  The material for that class could be posted each week, days before the class, at this blog.  All people would have to do is copy the lesson and just follow along.  Perhaps some might be willing to speak a little if asked.  This may be the first international language class in the world, all for Ladino

Thursday for three hours in the evening, there would be an intermediate Ladino class.

Friday for three hours would be for Ladino speakers to chat and enjoy the Sabbath together.  (For the Orthodox, this wouldn’t work but for others, it would be a way to bring people together who have been lonely on the Sabbath and could use the regular connections.)  This show might be mixed with music.

Saturday and Sunday might be filled with Sephardic speakers and stories and other entertainment, part in Ladino.  This might be a good time for Ladino singers to actually teach Ladino songs, to children and to older people.  Those who felt comfortable might sing on Tuesday nights, to show everyone what they had learned.

This schedule is only for three hours a day.  With enough demand, it could offer more time.

The goal of Radio Ladino would be a  Sephardic radio channel for everyone, with Ladino speakers having a wonderful time being together and Ladino itself increasingly present for those who have been disconnected from it.  Needless to say, the meaning and joy and connections such a radio channel would bring older Sephardic Jews would be life-sustaining.  Many may not be able to write to Ladino Komunitika but they could enjoy listening to the radio, and perhaps with help, call in to chat.  Some would hear friends.  It’s possible that some time might be devoted to those in Sephardic homes, choosing music they want, reaching out to be sure  these homes in different countries are connected to each other.  With enough demand, it could be a 24 hour show, playing Sephardic music or other recordings at night.  This wold be especially kind to elderly Sephardics who are alone or home bound or in homes.  It would provide a continuous community and familiarity.

The documentary, Saved by Language, (directed and produced by: Bryan Kirschen, Susanna Zaraysky, Elad Wexler) tells about Moris Albahari in Sarajevo and how Ladino saved his life during the Second World War.  Mr. Albahari is almost alone in Sarajevo now.  With a radio show in which he could be instantly connected to the entire Ladino-speaking community worldwdie, Ladino might save his life again.

Perhaps everyone is asking – who would run this?  Who would pay for it?

Paying it simple.  It costs almost nothing.

As for who would run it, there are Sephardic communities now with Ladino programs – Seattle, LA, New York, Paris, etc.  One community could be in charge for a year or 6 months, ensuring the system is up and keeping it running so Rachel Amado Bortnick can focus on Ladino and forget technology.  She and all the other speakers would have tremendous support and outreach.  The main community for that year or 6 months would appoint students and synagogue members to host the different evenings (which in most cases would be little more than introducing the show in a warm way and putting on music the guests brought, for breaks for everyone.  With people in the student and Sephardic community taking an evening (which they could share with friends), the task is easy but the rewards would be great.

If the Sephardic community if serious about protecting Ladino, this is where they can start.  If they want to do something wonderful for their older family members, this would be it.  The impact of such a channel on the Sephardic community as a whole would huge, not only in terms of Ladino but in terms of connections across the whole culture.  The radio shows would create a powerful community.
