And to all the people giving laughing awards, fuck you to hell and back. You pussies hide behind anonymity to avoid hate and would collapse behind your screens if you even got down voted for it. Every one of you can fuck off out of this subreddit.
And condolences to the kid who posted it, I went through the same thing last month with my grandfather. You're not alone friend

Why did the Nazis let my great-grandfather go to the hospital?
Basically, my great-grandfather was sent to a labor camp in the Netherlands in early 1944 and contracted a staph infection that led to his death at age 27. He was Jewish and his wife was not so his deportation was delayed after a few call-ups but they eventually sent him. I'm wondering why they would have let him go to a hospital in a nearby city. I'm assuming it was most likely just so that he could keep performing labor, but couldn't they have easily let him die and arrested another person? His career wasn't in labor and it was fairly shortly after he got to the camp, so I can't imagine that he would have been particularly "outstanding." I don't have many details but I do know for sure that he died in a regular hospital off of the camp. His family was even allowed to visit him in his last moments and my grandmother has told me that while the conditions were awful, the laborers still had communication with home and could even go to the city on the weekends. Why was he taken to the hospital? Why were they fairly "lenient" as opposed to other camps?
(Also: very uninterested in any kind of "the Holocaust wasn't as bad as people think" comments or thoughts.)

I found my Great Grandfather's season ticket for 1905/06. It granted entry to the grounds of all football teams in the Manchester League.
An Arab family residing in Europe was considering putting their grandfather (Abdullah) in a nursing home. All the Arab Facilities were completely full, so they had to put him in an Italian one. After a few weeks there, they came to visit their Grandfather.
"How do you like it here?" asked the grandson. "It's wonderful! Everyone here is so courteous and respectful," answered grandpa. "We're so happy for you," said the Grandson. "We were worried that this was the wrong place for you, since you're a little different from everyone."
"Oh, no! Let me tell you about how wonderfully they treat the residents here," Abdullah said, with a big smile on his face. "There's a musician here--he's 85 years old. He hasn't played the violin in 20 years, and everyone still calls him Maestro! There is a judge in here--he's 90 years old. He hasn't been on the bench in 25 years, and everyone still calls him Your Honor! There's a dentist here too--95 years old. He hasn't fixed a tooth for 30 years, and everyone still calls him Doctor!"
"And Me--I haven't had sex for 35 years, and they still call me The Fucking Arab."
[apologies for the racism; if it's any consolation, am partly arab, so, yeah--just trying to laugh at myself whenever I can... cheers.]

It took me five years to track down (and then visit) the location of this WW2 photo of my grandfather. Montecatini Terme, Italy. 1945 and 2017.
Turns out he did finish what his grandfather had started — saved someone he cared about from dying.

This is me and my 79-year-old grandfather. Three and a half years ago, I taught him how to play hearthstone. He hasn't missed a daily quest ever since and today, he got a Tavern Mug for Christmas. reddit.com/gallery/kjmt7y
The day after his grandfather was murdered at the age of 61, a young CP3 who was in high school dropped 61 points as a tribute...In that game, he had 59 points, proceeded to hit an and-1 layup to reach 61, airballed the freethrow, and walked off the court.
> His total left him just six points away from the state record for most points in a game. But as he walked to the foul line, that didn't matter. But the number 61 did. "I walked to the free throw line, he gave me the ball and I shot an air ball right out of bounds," Paul said. "And my coach took me out. I just looked at my dad and started crying." His father had been watching, stunned. "It was just like everything came out of him," Charles Paul said. "He just walked over to me and gave me a hug. He just fell in to my arms. It just tore me up because of what he had just done." Chris Paul said the incredible moment on the court helped with the pain. "I believe it makes me stronger but it's so hard because … we're still getting through it," he said. "My granddad did so much for our family that it's unreal. It's hard to go on right now … I'm thankful for my granddad and I'll never forget him. Ever."

My grandfather passed away a week ago. I'm helping my mother and aunt clean the house. We found 25 rifles and shotguns throughout the house. Under his bed, behind the fridge, behind doors. The oldest one was made in 1894. imgur.com/gallery/LXBiDkp
