April 9, 2021: This is the most important article published by Extremely American.

Holocaust survivor and founder of the Alliance for Human Research Protection, Vera Sharav, testified before the German Corona Committee this week. Vera Sharav’s comments offer the unique context that only a Holocaust survivor could ever express - her words of concern and alarm over events occurring in these times should shake everyone to the core. I will not even attempt to summarize Sharav’s 45-minute testimony as her official statement before the German Corona Committee cannot be stated in better words than those that she provided.

Anyone not currently taking government and public health policy excesses and abuses seriously, must take the time to read the transcript and watch the full 45-minute testimony provided in the link below. For the purposes of this article, I have transcribed the first seven minutes – the link provided at the end of the transcript allows access to the full video. The words and video footage of Vera Sharav should inspire all concerned citizens around the world to demand truthful answers from their elected officials and health authorities. It is critical for everyone to share the information from this article with family and friends as well as their elected officials as soon as possible.

Transcript: Vera Sharav - German Corona Committee Testimony (April 6, 2021)

As a child survivor of the Nazi reign of terror, I learned indelible lessons about the nature of evil. I know the consequences of being stigmatized and demonized as a spreader of disease. My perspective is informed by my experience, by the historical record, and by the empirical evidence. We were required, as Germans know, to wear a yellow star of David to identify us. To segregate Jews, exclusionary laws barred the family from normal life, from attending ordinary activities, and our property was impounded. We were forbidden to participate in all educational, religious, and cultural gatherings. Travel was forbidden for Jews, so there was no escape.

These painful memories of my childhood sensitized me to the threat posed by current restrictive government dictates. In 1776, Benjamin Rush (a doctor and signer of the Declaration of Independence) foresaw the danger of medicine organizing as an ‘undercover dictatorship’. Under the Nazi regime, moral norms were systematically obliterated. The medical profession and institutions were radically transformed. Academic science, the military, industry, and clinical medicine were tightly interwoven – as they are now. The Nazi system destroyed a social conscience in the name of public health. Violations against individuals and classes of human beings were institutionalized. Eugenics-driven public health policies replaced the physician’s focus on the good of the individual.

German medical profession and institutions were perverted. Coercive public health policies violated individual civil and human rights. Criminal methods were used to enforce the policies. Nazi propaganda used fear of infection and epidemics to demonize Jews as spreaders of disease – as a menace to public health. This is a hallmark of anti-Semitism - blame the Jewish people for existential threats. In the middle ages, Jews were blamed for the Bubonic Plague and the Black Plague. Fear and propaganda were the psychological weapons the Nazis used to impose their genocidal regime.

And today, some are beginning to understand why the German people did not rise up. Fear kept them from doing the right thing.

Medical mandates today are a major step backward toward a fascist dictatorship and genocide. Government dictates and medical interventions - these undermine our dignity as well as our freedom. First it was vaccination mandates for children, now it is for adults. The stark lesson of the Holocaust is that whenever doctors join forces with the government they deviate from their personal, professional, and clinical commitment to ‘do no harm to the individual’. Medicine can then be perverted from a healing and humanitarian profession to a murderous apparatus.

What sets the Holocaust apart from all other mass genocides is the pivotal role played by the medical establishment, the entire medical establishment. Every step of the murderous Holocaust process was endorsed by the academic and professional medical establishment. Medical doctors and prestigious medical societies and institutions lent the veneer of legitimacy to infanticide and mass murder of civilians. The murderous operations were methodical and followed protocol very carefully. Questionnaires were sent out to all institutions requiring detailed information about each patient. A committee of 54 psychiatrists/doctors made the final ‘life and death’ decisions for each patient. The objective was to eliminate the economic burden of those the regime and the doctors deemed worthless.
