Organization seeks to give a final resting place to Jews brutally murdered during the Holocaust

Before traveling to Israel for the August 2011 Restoring Courage event, Glenn visited Auschwitz with his family. Over the years, Glenn has discussed the impact that trip had on him, but the visit actually served as a life changing pivot point for another person who made the journey. Because of his experience in Auschwitz, Johnny Daniels decided to start an organization, From The Depths, and he spoke to Glenn about his work on radio this morning.

“You went with us, and we didn't know each other,” Glenn said of Daniels. “We got to know each other in a very, very deep and profound way. It was a pivot point for my life, but a pivot point for you really.”

When Daniels first met Glenn, he was working at the Israeli Knesset. Born in England, he moved to Israel when he was 18 years old. Daniels had never been to Auschwitz before, but he had heard many stories about the concentration camp over the years. He lost several family members during the Holocaust.

“That trip with you, Glenn, it changed my life completely,” Daniels explained. “I had avoided going to Poland. I had grown up in stories of the Poland of past and reading stories of the Holocaust and the terrors and the horrific things that happened. I just simply never wanted to go. I kept away as far as I possibly could. When you reached out and I went there with you, something happened to me… It flipped my life.”

After touring the complex, Daniels realized he must do something to honor those who were killed. He began to spend more and more time in Poland and studied more about the Holocaust and Nazi Germany. What most people don’t realize, Daniels explained, is the majority of killings did not take place in the concentration camps.

“You went to a place here recently because… you set up an organization From the Depths and you are actually trying to repatriate and bury the dead,” Glenn said. “You told me yesterday… there is a place where they used to march the Jews [to] dig their own graves… They would just march them in and shoot them… The people that fought said that it was so full of blood the hill actually bled blood a couple months afterward. You were just there. It's now a volleyball court?”

“It's a volleyball court,” Daniels confirmed. “People don't realize that the majority of Jews weren't killed in the concentration camps, they were marched into these mass graves, shot, and thrown into these pits. What we're seeing now is we're finding these sites all over Poland.”

Daniels is able to find these locations because local townsfolk who lived through the Nazi occupation are beginning to speak out about what they saw and where these mass graves exist. In going to these sites, Daniels began to come across human remains that have come to the surface after years of erosion.

“In Judaism, there's a strong connection between the body and the soul. We bury the dead. We don't touch a body since it's been buried,” Daniels said. “And to find these bones of these Jews that have been so brutally murdered just left for the animals and for the elements was shocking. So we picked these bones up… and we buried them according to Jewish law.”

Through his organization, From The Depths, Daniels is looking to connect to and highlight past atrocities to ensure such things never happen again. In doing so, he is also giving a proper burial to countless people who were brutally executed decades ago.

“Unfortunately, we're not finding full skeletons,” Daniels said. “We're sending forensic experts people to bury them there. We're giving a final resting place to these Jews that were so brutally murdered.”

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.
