A memorial to remind people of the long standing and present day trauma and brutality the Palestinians are suffering in the open air prison camp they are being held captive in by their occupiers should be considered also.

People need to also be reminded that Palestinians are Semites too.

"Palestinians are Semites too". So true. They all came from the same part of the world. Central Asia. Not Africa, I mean the "middle east". Called the "middle east" in about 1921 by the British. Check it out. Then check them out.

Go to the community pool that your taxes help fund. A pool in your back yard is a pleasure MANY DO NOT share in. The 'American Dream', i.e. your back yard pool, can be obtained by working hard, saving and prioritizing; it won't be handed to you and it won't appear overnight. No one ever said it was going to be easy; if they did, they were full of hot air.

I am Jewish.

There is wasted space where the City Center was. A facility could be built (jobs) and in that facility we can reflect on the evil atrocities that have happened to so many of us and our ancestors. I think it should be all inclusive..

If people don't learn what happened then history will repeat itself. It always does. I've seen a lot of hate spewed on this forum against ethnic, religious and cultural differences. Much of the mentality displayed here is what has cost so many lives throughout centuries.

Andrew Jackson was a murderer and a bigot. He also conducted outright genocide and Nazi behaviors toward Native Americans. Yet, for some reason we honor him every hour of the day by displaying this despicable man on the twenty dollar bill.

Now wouldn't it be amazing to include many atrocities within a museum here and learn many life lessons from them?

By law, the State of Ohio will have to allow any group that experienced overseas war losses to erect monuments at the Statehouse. They will then have to erect a monument to Lithuanians killed by the Bolsevik Red Army for their Christian faith.

Fantastic, I agree with you.
I also am hurt and surprised at how many people on this forum have Hitler's mentality. Most of my family were tortured and murdered during the Holocaust. It makes me sick to read these hateful comments.
Believe me, I am no fan of Kasich, however, I think it's admirable that he is considering a memorial. I am not sure that putting it in the rotunda is a good idea though. I would like to see a nice stand alone facility downtown dedicated to the horrors of mankind including the Holocaust.
Thank you for your comment.
Glad to see you also question the Rotunda as proper place for said memorial. I have seen the tattoo, I have seen the bayonet scar that went the entire length of his chest, I heard his story of while his camp was being liberated, the Nazis shot all they could, but when they got to him they had run out off bullets. He told me he owed his life to an American surgeon...Yes, the Holocaust must not be forgotten. I won't forget Ben, I will never forget. But after so much effort and money was put into restoring the Rotunda to its 1860's look, and 1940's memorial would be very out of place.
Thanks for acknowledging not all opposed to a Holocaust memorial in the Rotunda are anti Jewish whack jobs.

This is as it would be to pay respect to alcoholic survivors, by drinking alcohol.

Hey I'm right here, and I'm glad because its easier to for us together with the liberals to stop his decisions than it is for us alone to stop the decisions of the liberals.

"anti semitic" is so unbelievably ignorant a term I can't believe people actually use it, even the gov. Seinfeld, jewish, even made fun of it. Semitic means from shem. The bizarre Jewish geneology quest in "modern israel" uses an arab as the DNA standard. I know, I directly debated live a lead scientist involved in it. Admittedly, no one argues arabs descendency from shem. These same scientists have found it interesting and began mentioning that white europeans also have the same DNA characteristic they use to identify as Israel or "semitic" yet that quickly became a "hush, hush."
Lastly, Shem has little to do with who Israel is. Shem was a son of Noah many, many generations before Jacob the father of Israel and probably thousands of family branches that are not Israel but are "semitic." Probably 99+% of people on earth have semitic blood. Shem wasn't given the promises or the birthright as "gods' chosen" anyway. It was Jacob many generations and branches later.
