In Holland, two Muslim invaders savagely attack elderly Jewish Holocaust survivors in their home, blinding the husband, beating up the wife, and calling them “dirty Jews” while stealing the couple’s property, claiming it as “theirs now.”
Times of Israel via Frontpage (h/t ThisLittlePiggy) Diana Blug, 86, and her husband of 56 years Shmuel, 87, are both Holocaust survivors. Diana has scars from being attacked by Auschwitz guard dogs. The August 4 attack left Shmuel blind and with a broken thigh bone, and Diana suffering from “extreme pains,” according to the news site Ynet. Both have been in a rehabilitation center in the month since the attack, and are now confined to wheelchairs.
According to the Blugs, the two male attackers, apparently of Moroccan Muslim descent, dressed in black knocked loudly on their door and claimed to be police officers. When Shmuel opened the door, the men charged in, pointing guns and hitting and kicking the elderly couple as they demanded their jewelry and other valuables. At one point, they tied them up and began ripping jewelry off Diana’s body.
“They called us ‘dirty Jews’ and said: ‘You don’t need your jewelry anymore. You’ve been wearing it for too long. Now it’s all ours,’” Diana recalled, according to Ynet. “They wanted to chop off my finger because the rings didn’t come off fast enough,” Diana said.
After tying up the badly injured couple, the thieves ripped Diana’s jewelry off her body. At gunpoint, they forced the couple to tell them where the rest of the valuables in the apartment were located.
Samuel was blinded in the assault and suffered a broken femur. Both he and Diana, who were living independently before the attack, are now confined to wheelchairs at a rehabilitation center in Amsterdam.
“Those bastards have destroyed our lives,” Shmuel said in tears. “I have severe pain. I’m completely broken inside,” Diana added. Diana with her mother, twin brother and another brother were transported to Birkenau and then to Auschwitz when she was thirteen. Only Diana and her mother survived the horrors. She shows the number on her arm. “And on my stomach I have scars from the dog that bit me in the camp because I did not run fast enough.”
Police have publicized descriptions of the attackers, but no suspects have yet been apprehended.
