THE OVITZ FAMILY
Good day mates! Has everyone had a great week? Even if not, count you blessing for if you believe in Jesus you truly are blessed.
But there are those among us that have been lead so astray that they will do anything. One such person was Mengele, the death angel. But a whole family, the Ovitz, survived his sadism…
The Hungarian jewish family, the Ovitz, had twelve members, seven of which were dwarfs. They were a working family as a singing and musical instrumental group. The seven dwarfs were the performers while the rest of the average sized family worked back stage. In 1944 they were captured by the Nazis. “The war was a little less than a year from closing, yet this was the most dangerous time at Auschwitz. Fresh trains arrived daily, bringing new loads of Jews from Hungary, who the Nazis had just recently begun deporting and murdering. Nearly all of these new arrivals were sent immediately to their deaths, the camp being unable to house the hundreds of thousands of arrivals when it was already packed with 150,000 souls. In its time some 30 million would pass through its gates, the majority never to depart through them again.”1
Auschwitz, unfortunately was were the “death angel”, Josef Mengele, was stationed. Mengele is infamous for his cruel and tormenting experiments performed on certain subjects in his drive to fulfill his curiosity of human “evolution”. He believed that malformations in humans was the key. “The sight of an entire family of dwarfs caused an SS officer to immediately order the awakening of Josef Mengele, although the hour was early in the morning…Mengele was always interested in people who were malformed or greatly different from the norm. Such people, including twins, were often reserved to him for his ‘experiments’ which experts have discerned were little more than sadistic rites of torture. As 3,100 of the 3,500 people aboard their train arriving from Hungary went immediately to the gas chambers and were dead within hours, the Ovitz family was spared and loaded onto a truck to be carried away and tortured at Menglele's hands. Etched into their memories was the fresh knowledge of the crematoriums, other Jewish prisoners explained to them upon their arrival.
The flames from the chimneys seared themselves into memory.”2
I will not get into the torturous experiments Mengele took pleasure in, but I will say this; the Ovitz family suffered greatly and unnecessarily. The experiments were preformed without anesthetic and even when the victims fainted from the pain and loss of blood this horrendously sadistic man would wait for them to revive before he continued.
How can a person become so cruel? When one draws away from the one and only true God, Jesus Christ, they are open to Satan and all his evil ways. If one believes in evolution, then all humans come from scum and life is not valuable.
Dwarfism has nothing to do with evolution. It is “short stature that results from a genetic or medical condition.Dwarfism is generally defined as an adult height of 4 feet 10 inches (147 centimeters) or less. The average adult height among people with dwarfism is 4 feet (122 cm). Many different medical conditions cause dwarfism. In general, the disorders are divided into two broad categories:
• Disproportionate dwarfism. If body size is disproportionate, some parts of the body are small, and others are of average size or above-average size. Disorders causing disproportionate dwarfism inhibit the development of bones. (This is what the Ovit's had).
• Proportionate dwarfism. A body is proportionately small if all parts of the body are small to the same degree and appear to be proportioned like abody of average stature. Medical conditions present at birth or appearing in early childhood limit overall growth and development.”3
As for the Ovits, “eventually, the Russians came to liberate the camp and by great fortune, the entire family survived. They returned home to find their valuables where they buried them, a rare success for Holocaust survivors. They then resumed their acting careers until one by one, they grew old and frail and died.”4
As for the death angel, “Mengele escaped to Argentina, and later Paraguay, where he eluded justice for the rest of his life. He eventually drowned in Brazil during a swim, but at that time, his health was already failing. He never facedearthly justice for his crimes.”5 But every knee will bow, and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is God. He will get what is coming to him by our just God.
Until next time, God bless and take care,
