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.”

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."
