The Allied bombing of Dresden cast 300,000 tormented souls into a holocaust. Such was its horror and magnitude that a fake holocaust was created to justify it. Yet Dresden was only one of hundreds of European cities and towns to be cremated by the Allies. By comparison many cities fared worse: When on April 4, 1945, the City of Kassel surrendered, of a population of 250,000, just 15,000 were left alive.
During the summer of 1940, 18 months before the United States trade sanctions provoked the Japanese into punching their way out of the trade headlock by attacking Pearl Harbor, Congress appropriated $23 billion for the War Department.

The total destruction of the German city of Dresden in February 1944 has never been justified. There are squalid attempts to downplay the numbers of martyred civilians. Over three days of infamy, 1,249 USAAF and RAF bombers removed from the face of the earth a once-great city. The holocaust, to give the inferno its proper term, is falsely claimed to have led to the loss of 22,000 to 25,000 lives.
