“Those who control the past, control the future: who controls the present controls the past.” - "1984" by Eric Blair aka George Orwell
somewhere between 1948 and 1963 4 million disappear on this chart; And then around 1994 6 million reappear. Should expect a more clear graphic of world Jewish population.Also the horizontal axis jumps from 1946 to 1948, then to 1963; two years equal 15?
Thanks, for spotting the horizontal axis irregularity. The graph has to be studied carefully to get a true picture of the growth and decline of the world Jewish population.But having allowed for this - there is still no decline in the number of Jews during the 1940's. If my reading of the graph is correct, then the sizeable collapse of 4 million Jews happened over a ten year period from the early 1950's to the early 1960's.Why should this be ? - perhaps all the displaced Jews of WW2 had, by then, settled down into new lives in various countries across the world, and many didn't register as being Jewish anymore. The post-war years had brought about economic growth and prosperity, and they may well have wanted to forget the past, with all its wartime deprivations and upheavals.
Why is everybody anonymous here?For the Big brothers are watching over everything?
