I find it discrimination that the BBC can make and screen a popular TV series about captured POW's

who were Officer held in Colditz, yet ignore the two dozen concentration / death camps foe Jews., where

in excess of six million were brutalised and murdered.

A very powerful and graphic picture of the distinguished Belfast, Ulster, and Westminster politician and social activist, Gerard (Gerry) Fitt,... later Lord Fitt, the Baron Fitt.

"Gerry stood there motionless for more than the two seconds that the frame took."

"He was staring at his wedding album, which was burnt to a cinder on the floor, and he was just reflecting on that it was almost like a Hitchcock moment."

"He later told me that he believed that the picture got him a peerage because the British government saw that moderate nationalism didn't have a voice in the area - after Gerry Adams had taken Fitt's West Belfast seat - and a way of giving that voice to them was to put Gerry Fitt in the House of Lords."

An appalling act against a decent fellow.   >:(
Justice for the Massacred of La Mon and other atrocities.  The TRUTH will set them FREE.
