    That short film was riveting. I think of 1 Peter 4 as I see Christ also condemned by the Nazi officer. Yet, He died for them also to be forgiven and made new. I tried to chat but no one picked up. Do you lack people to man the chats?

    This has always hit a nerve with me. Always makes me tear up when a mention of what happened. I look and see all of this starting again but this time not just Jews but Gentiles as well. My heart aches for all of this, past and present. But I know that God wins in the end.

    You need to make a movie telling the prophesies of Yeshua in Zechariah 3:8,9. Isa 11:1,53:2, 4-5 and more, The main story is about God and His plan for all of us. How the Holy Feast Days with time and seasons, and statues of God. The real story of Yeshua and Israel needs to be told. The truth needs to come out.

    Why not show this in churchs.And say some Christians tell Jews they are going to hell for killing Jesus. What do you think now? Iwas born to a Jewish father and gentile Christian mother. I was raised in a Baptist church. People I have known have made anti-Semitic remarks which made me angry. The church needs to be told how it has mistreated the Jews.

    This video is sad. My Father’ was Jewish, he died in 1990. I have thought for years that if Jesus had lived in Nazi occupied Europe he would have died in a gas chamber. My Father felt that those members of his family that stayed in Russia died in the holocaust. .

    You might peek at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create article titles to grab people

    I think non Jewish world should know is that the whole Story of Jesus was made up. It was historical fiction. If you truly study your bible and understand all 613 commandments, you will find Jesus sined countless of times. Ask your self can G-d make you or ask you to sin on His behalf for His name and Glory? The answer is shocking NO you can’t. Examples: Did Mary have a choice to have Jesus? Answer NO, in short she was raped. Who circumcised Jesus? No Rabbi would circumcise a bastard child. Therefore in order for Jesus to be accepted in the Jewish community or to even go to the Temple Joseph would of had to lye on G-d’s behalf and call Jesus his son. I have several more, when Jesus performed a meaningless so called miracle of cursing the. Fig Tree that was in fact out of season to wither up and die, Jesus sinned. When his disciples father died and told them not to attend to there fathers death, Jesus caused them to dishonor there parents, and to break the several other G-d’s commandments. The list goes on. As a side note: the whole life of Jesus is a plagerized life of the story Dynisis and Isis written 300 years before Jesus. By the way Jesus wasn’t even his real name. his real name would of been Joshua not Jesus which is Greek not hebrew. The founders of this pagan christian cult changed names and events to be more self serving, and not factual. But in short if you want Jesus or it to be your plagerized greek godhead figured to be your savior so be it. But that basterd child didn’t die for me or any other Jew. So stop forcing your cult on us. Your cult has killed millions upon millions of Jews. How has your cults bettered the world? Your priest raping childern, your pastors stealing money, and sleeping with married wives, you allow homosexuals to be pastors, and even conduct homosexual marriages, the money given to your church goes to anything but trying to help the world. In conclusion spending millions of dollars to save the soul, from a mythical enemy satan and the league of fallen angels is a horrible way to use good money to help those who could really use it. FYI there is no such thing as a fallen angel, and the so-called Satan is a very Righteous Angel. He is the prosecuting attorney for G-d. The so-called evil in this world is not spiritual but us not following G-ds law and making bad choices.

    Rabbi writes teachers’ guide to Shoa films

    April 8, 2014

    Rabbi Bernhard Rosenberg, the son of Holocaust survivors and a longtime educator, has published a guide to assist teachers in conveying the horrors of the Shoa.

    The Holocaust as Seen Through Film will be available this month on Amazon.com and is available on-line here.

    The book is targeted for those teaching the Holocaust to high school seniors, college students, and graduate candidates. It consists of brief summaries of films and documentaries, plus discussion questions to guide viewers.

    The longtime religious leader at Congregation Beth-El in Edison and the township chaplain, Rosenberg formerly taught at Rutgers and Yeshiva universities and now at Middlesex County College in Edison. He was recently appointed to the New Jersey Commission on Holocaust Education.

    Rosenberg was born in a displaced persons’ camp in Regensburg, Germany, to Polish Holocaust survivor parents, who lost their entire families with the exception of one cousin.

    Rosenberg has written extensively about the Holocaust. One of his books, Theological and Halachic Reflections on the Holocaust, is now in its second printing.

    Rosenberg frequently appears on radio and television and has received many awards, including Chaplain of the Year, for his efforts following 9/11, and the Rabbi Israel Mowshowitz Award from the New York Board of Rabbis.

    Subject: I do not agree with those who are attacking the video showing Jesus carrying a cross and being sent to the showers from the gates to Auschwitz

    I am the son of Holocaust survivors. Most of my family perished in the Holocaust, either in the crematorium or they were shot dead on the street. Like many children of Holocaust survivors I never had grandparents. I became a rabbi as a concept of never again. I vowed that I’d do everything in my power to stop evil and to make certain that people that are like the Nazis, demons that they are, would never succeed.

    When I viewed the film, “That Jew Died For You,” I recognized it as a movie of compassion. I am not a stranger to this subject having just authored a new book The Holocaust as Seen Through Film, one of the many books that I have written with a Holocaust theme.

    I do not believe that Jesus was the Messiah but I do believe he was a Jew. I am completely non-judgmental with regards to anyone’s religious observances. I don’t judge anybody because I did not go into the clergy for religious sake. I went into clergy for humanity’s sake. There are not too many Holocaust survivors’ kids around that think the way I do.

    I do not agree with those who are attacking the video showing Jesus carrying a cross and being sent to the showers from the gates to Auschwitz. If Jesus were at Auschwitz he would have been murdered just for being a Jew. If anything the attack on this video bolsters Jews for Jesus, which I’m sure was not the intent of those critics. I think that the purpose of the video was to show that indeed Jesus was a Jew; whether you accept him as the Messiah is up to you. LET ME STATE CLEARLY: I DO NOT ENDORSE JEWS FOR JESUS OR THEIR BELIEFS. But I think their intent was not to harm our Jewish people but to depict Jesus as the observant Jew he was. The historical Jesus was a devout Jew.

    I witnessed Mel Gibson’s Passion of the Christ in Manhattan when it first came out and there was an uproar—there was a fear that it would create a lot of anti-Semitism because of the way that Jesus is persecuted and victimized. The fact is Jesus, at least the spiritual Jesus, was supposed to die and be resurrected and that did happen in this film. It was not the Jews that killed Jesus; rather it was Pontius Pilate and the Romans. In fact, if you saw that picture, you would see that the Roman soldiers did the floggings. Many people do not understand history at all.

    I believe that it was the teachings of the Church, not Jesus, that allowed Hitler to spread his ideology of hatred for the Jews. I am happy that the teachings of the Church regarding the Jewish people have changed. A special thank you to the Christians who support the state of Israel.

    The bottom line is that Jesus’ message was not to hate the Jews, but to love all humanity, and he would certainly not say that one should hate his own people. Instead of hatred in the world, there should be love. And if that was the message Jesus communicated, then that was an outstanding message for all of mankind. During this period of Easter and Passover, as well as the remembrance of the Holocaust, may love conquer evil and may we together fight hatred and intolerance.

    Not a single document has ever been found which substantiates or even refers to an extermination program or policy.

      Please read this: http://www.jewsforjesus.org/publications/issues/v20-n04/sobibor-s-sock-knitters
      Take note of the Nazi flowchart detailing the most efficient ways to kill the Jewish prisoners.

      Then read this: http://www.ushmm.org/wlc/en/article.php?ModuleId=10005192
      Take note of this paragraph: “After some experimentation, the camp authorities began regular gassing operations in May 1942. Trains of 40 to 60 freight cars arrived at the Sobibor railway station. Twenty cars at a time entered the reception area, where the camp guards ordered victims out of the trains and onto the platform. German SS and police officials announced that the deportees had arrived at a transit camp and were to hand over all valuables. The Germans ordered the Jews into the barracks and forced them to undress and run through the ‘tube,’ which led directly into gas chambers deceptively labeled as showers. The women’s hair was shorn in a special barracks inside the ‘tube.’ Once the gas chamber doors were sealed, in an adjacent room guards started an engine which piped carbon monoxide into the gas chambers, killing all those inside. The process was repeated with the next freight cars.”

    This video has nothing to do with the Holocaust. And Jesus did not die in a concentration camp nor did he die for ANY jew on the planet. Though, he would have been starved, shot, hung, gassed and burned like every other Jew , since he was one himself. The point of this offensive insensitive video is to merge the death of Jesus with the mass murder of 6 million Jews. This is done by rabid missionaries who would gladly try to convert Jesus himself if he stood before them, because they have no respect from where their own G-d comes from and they just can’t leave Jews alone. The only roll Christianity played in the Holocaust was when a Christian decided to behave Christ-like and save a Jew … Or anti-Christ like help butcher their neighbors.

    Subject: I do not agree with those who are attacking the video showing Jesus carrying a cross and being sent to the showers from the gates to Auschwitz

    I am the son of Holocaust survivors. Most of my family perished in the Holocaust, either in the crematorium or they were shot dead on the street. Like many children of Holocaust survivors I never had grandparents. I became a rabbi as a concept of never again. I vowed that I’d do everything in my power to stop evil and to make certain that people that are like the Nazis, demons that they are, would never succeed.

    When I viewed the film, “That Jew Died For You,” I recognized it as a movie of compassion. I am not a stranger to this subject having just authored a new book The Holocaust as Seen Through Film, one of the many books that I have written with a Holocaust theme.

    I do not believe that Jesus was the Messiah but I do believe he was a Jew. I am completely non-judgmental with regards to anyone’s religious observances. I don’t judge anybody because I did not go into the clergy for religious sake. I went into clergy for humanity’s sake. There are not too many Holocaust survivors’ kids around that think the way I do.

    I do not agree with those who are attacking the video showing Jesus carrying a cross and being sent to the showers from the gates to Auschwitz. If Jesus were at Auschwitz he would have been murdered just for being a Jew. If anything the attack on this video bolsters Jews for Jesus, which I’m sure was not the intent of those critics. I think that the purpose of the video was to show that indeed Jesus was a Jew; whether you accept him as the Messiah is up to you. LET ME STATE CLEARLY: I DO NOT ENDORSE JEWS FOR JESUS OR THEIR BELIEFS. But I think their intent was not to harm our Jewish people but to depict Jesus as the observant Jew he was. The historical Jesus was a devout Jew.

    I witnessed Mel Gibson’s Passion of the Christ in Manhattan when it first came out and there was an uproar—there was a fear that it would create a lot of anti-Semitism because of the way that Jesus is persecuted and victimized. The fact is Jesus, at least the spiritual Jesus, was supposed to die and be resurrected and that did happen in this film. It was not the Jews that killed Jesus; rather it was Pontius Pilate and the Romans. In fact, if you saw that picture, you would see that the Roman soldiers did the floggings. Many people do not understand history at all.

    I believe that it was the teachings of the Church, not Jesus, that allowed Hitler to spread his ideology of hatred for the Jews. I am happy that the teachings of the Church regarding the Jewish people have changed. A special thank you to the Christians who support the state of Israel.

    The bottom line is that Jesus’ message was not to hate the Jews, but to love all humanity, and he would certainly not say that one should hate his own people. Instead of hatred in the world, there should be love. And if that was the message Jesus communicated, then that was an outstanding message for all of mankind. During this period of Easter and Passover, as well as the remembrance of the Holocaust, may love conquer evil and may we together fight hatred and intolerance.

    The Roman Gentiles killed Jesus when he was on earth. The German Gentiles would have done the same during the Holocaust.

            I watched the video again and I don’t see any thing at all that even hints at the idea that Jesus is offering a drink of water, just a hand to help the girl up. So there was absolutely no intention to show a reversal of roles from when Jesus went to the cross. And there was absolutely no intent to even hint at the thought that the Jewish people deserved it because they rejected him.

    I just “happened” to listen to Janet Parshall today on Moody. Your portrayal of Jesus heading to death at the hands of the Nazis is powerful. I just returned from a tour of Israel and realize even more fully how God has a plan for that tiny country. They just need to know the savior! And one day they will.

    Jewish teaching promotes the idea that the death of Jews in the Holocaust accomplished kiddush ha Shem, the sanctification of God’s name.

    OK, at first conservative rabbis did take this position, but then there was a significant backlash.

    Why make G-d into a pro-Nazi zealot?

    And who says Isa 53 applies to Jesus? More bad theology. Not even the NT says

      Aaron,
      There are several instances in the New Testament that state that Isaiah 53 does apply to Jesus. For example, Matthew 8:17: “This was to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah: ‘He took our illnesses and bore our diseases.'” (Isaiah 53:4); Mark 15:27: “And the Scripture was fulfilled that says, ‘He was numbered with the transgressors.'” (Isaiah 53:12); Luke 22:37 (Jesus speaking): “For I tell you that this Scripture must be fulfilled in me: ‘And he was numbered with the transgressors.’ For what is written about me has its fulfillment.” (Isaiah 53:12); John 12:38: “so that the word spoken by the prophet Isaiah might be fulfilled: ‘Lord, who has believed what he heard from us, and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?'” (Isaiah 53:1); Acts 8:32-35: “Now the passage of the Scripture that he was reading was this: ‘Like a sheep he was led to the slaughter and like a lamb before its shearer is silent, so he opens not his mouth. In his humiliation justice was denied him. Who can describe his generation? For his life is taken away from the earth.’ And the eunuch said to Philip, ‘About whom, I ask you, does the prophet say this, about himself or about someone else?’ Then Philip opened his mouth, and beginning with this Scripture he told him the good news about Jesus.” (Isaiah 53:7-8)

        American soldiers dying in Germany also had nothing to do with the German attempt at extermination of the Jews. America didn’t even officially know it was happening until after the war.

    Dear Producers of this film,

    I don’t mind any person or organization expressing their religious views in a video when such a production includes historical content and it is utilized accurately. However, in this video, there is offensive historical content which needs an edit and correction. In the beginning at 2 seconds into the video, there is a caption that reads, “Poland 1943”, which is historically inaccurate. In the year 1943, Poland no longer existed on the map of Europe as a sovereign nation as it was occupied by Nazi Germany and the German “General Government” made all governmental and administrative decisions. Such misleading information in the form of captions could convey to unaware viewers that the Holocaust had taken place in “Poland”, which is incorrect. The Holocaust had taken place in “German Occupied Poland” and was implemented by Nazi Germany. Hence, the caption should read “German Occupied Poland 1943”.

    Would the producers please kindly correct this caption in the video for the sake of historical accuracy, and to avoid offending anyone? Thank you.

    Actually, all those Jews died for themselves.
    All of those Jews.
    And many, many of the people who killed them went to church every Sunday.
    Maybe the guy with the cross should have said something then . . . before he got the movie deal.

    Please pray for the people of the Ukraine and especially the Jewish people particularly of Donetsk region who were given leaflets appearing to be from the government as they left the synagogue last weekend. The leaflets told them they had to register because they were Jews. This is extremely disturbing and reminiscent of policies of Nazi Germany.

    Thank you for that video “That Jew Died for You” for that video, you will be persecuted, but know this, you created the truth, and enraptured the true meaning of the cross, resurrection, everything. Stay strong, do not waver. Jesus was a Jew, and I’m glad He died for me. By the way, I’m not a Jew.

    What I take away from this video is that the Nazi officers making the selection process—and I think by inference we could say that about anyone totally committed to the Nazi party or agenda—is that they did not regard Yeshua as their Lord and Savior, their Redeemer. They had real disdain for Him. Jesus Himself said, “No man can serve two masters.”

    But my worry about this video clip is this:- Jesus did not die as a Jew for us, The Son of God, Who is God Him self came on this earth, even if He was born as a Jewish man, He represented us all, Jewish and gentiles while He took up our sins and iniquities on Himself the innocent Lamb or God died for us, Jesus is not just another Jew, He was and is the Son of God.

    When you say a Jew died for you, know this, you are lifting up your position in His own and as well as you are bringing His position lower to yours. After all, you are born Jew not because you want it but God want you that way. Jesus came in this earth as a Man on His own will in obedient to His Father no one impose this on Him. He choose to come as a Jew because of the promise God made to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob not because the Jewish people are supper’s in God’s sight.

    People of God you need to be very very carful when you try to make God’s story your own story, know that you are stepping in a mistake territory. That is exactly the reformer Martin Luther did ones, he became a reformer of catholic church and he establish a new religion or a reformed one, he felt he is some one on doing a great thing for God, and want to claim Jesus Christ as his property and wrote all bad things about the Jewish people forgetting that Jesus walk in this world as a Jew not a white man with blue eyes.

    Now I know why God never want to show us how He look like because the next thing we will do is, we want to look like Him when He told us in plain word He created us in His likeness. We often forget this truth and think the reverse that as if God is created in our image. I believe which lead the Natzis to create the antikable holocaust. Know that it is not only Jewish died on the Holocaust there were 14 Millions of other nations died on the Natzis hand as well. They also will tomorrow clam the same way you are claiming in here.

    I can tell you this you can not compare what the Jewish people went through the holocaust with Jesus suffering on the cross for you and me. Remember what we did on Jesus was we made Him to bare all the sins each one of us done from the time of the fall in Eden to this day. We made God, the creator of every thing to come to this earth He created as mere man and that was not enough we killed Him. It is not only the Jewish who did this to Jesus, it is the entire mankind starting from Adam till today we made Him suffer. Know that His blood is alive today as well and when ever you and I sin we are hurting Him right in His heart.

    I am not minimizing the cruelty of Holocaust, it was man made cruelty of the heart to one another but what Jesus did for me can not be compared with any one’s sufferings, know that when we beat and crucified Jesus, with cruelty know that, it was a horrendous crime mankind made in collaboration with Satan to the almighty God who created every thing in this universe.

    Because this is the only way we can be saved God took it up on Himself and He chose to do it that way because in His perfect righteousness’ He demands that from you and me and in order for you and me not to suffer He Himself took our sufferings.

    Remember it was both the Jewish and the Gentile together who killed Jesus Christ. As a Jew you need to take responsibility for Jesus’s death so do I as a gentile too. It is all of us who killed Jesus, and it is all of us who will share His glory if we receive Him as our Lord and Savior in our life.

      Jesus was not just another Jew, but the point in the video is that to the Nazi officer, Jesus was “just another Jew.” Jesus, who was Jewish, received no special treatment from the Nazi officer. Jesus would have gone to the gas chambers, just as our Jewish people did. The other point is that Jesus can identify with our sufferings, including those in the Holocaust, because of his sufferings. The film is not making a statement that Jesus’ suffering and death were less than that of those in the Holocaust. We are not making a comparison.

      Jesus was not on the side of the Nazis—however, sadly, a great many people identified Germany as a “Christian” nation and also sadly, many who were in the camps saw their captors attend “church”. The Nazis took over the church in Germany quite early on and set their own rules for the leadership. Thus, Dietrich Bonhoeffer and many other truly Christian pastors had to leave the State church and form the “Confessing Church.”

    Thank you for making this video. It is well made and thought provoking.

    I watched this video from the perspective of someone who is not Jewish by heritage, so my viewpoint is that of a non-Jewish person.

    It has been said that we become like what we worship. This is something which I believe many people miss when discussing what happened in Nazi Germany. The Nazis did not worship the True and Living God of the Bible. They worshipped Hitler and the Third Reich and Germany (primarily, but other things as well). But not the God of the Bible. Watch the videos made of the crowds—some close to 100,000 strong—in stadiums calling out “Heil Hitler!” as Hitler and the Nazi party rose to power.

    Maria Von Trapp recorded in her autobiography that when the Nazis came to power in Austria one of the first things they did was indoctrinate the children with lies about Jesus—for example, one day the children came home and told their parents they had been told that Jesus was just a naughty Jewish boy who ran away from his parents.

    The Nazis replaced the Christian and Catholic youth groups with Hitler Youth. In Germany the churches were taken over by the Nazi authorities early on—read biographies of Dietrich Bonhoeffer and others working with the “Confessing Church” in Germany, read also Anita Dittman’s autobiography titled Trapped in Hitler’s Hell which is a firsthand account of someone who was cared for by Believing Christians in Germany during the time the Nazis were in power.

    From that standpoint, I think the video can be used to open up discussion and hopefully to move people from an antagonistic point of view to a point of view of being willing to consider Jesus.

      Hi again,

      The film is not meant to cover all the key questions, but it does attempt to make two critical points:

      1. Jesus has often been wrongly associated with the perpetrators of the Holocaust. In reality, He is to be identified with those who were the victims. As a Jew, if He were in Europe at the time, Jesus may well have suffered the same fate of the six million who perished in the concentration camps.

      2. Jewish teaching promotes the idea that the death of Jews in the Holocaust accomplished kiddush ha Shem, the sanctification of God’s name. How much more than the Bible tells us, Jesus’ death was intended by God for kiddush ha am, the sanctification of the people. Through Him we can be made right with God. (See Hebrews 13:12)

      We hope the film accomplishes both points and is used to have meaningful conversations with our Jewish people during this Passover season.
