Keep up the pressure

The President of the Zionist Federation of New Zealand Rob Berg cannot believe that Mt Hutt Ski Area and NZ Ski think it is acceptable to name a ski slope and a restaurant after an unrepentant officer of the SS, as well as have a plaque erected to “respect his legacy”.

Willi Huber

There is currently an online petition to get Mt Hutt Ski Area to change their decision. A decision that is wrong in every way. The petition has nearly 5,000 signatures and Mt Hutt and NZ Ski are feeling the pressure. We need to keep this up until they change their decision.

Willi Huber was a key figure in the history of Mt Hutt Ski area near the Canterbury Plains on the South Island

Rob Berg says he was also deeply embedded in the Nazi killing machine during WW2.

According to Berg, Huber, at the age of 17, volunteered to join the Waffen-SS.

He states: “He could have joined many of the various units of the Nazi apparatus, but specifically chose the Waffen-SS where he became a decorated officer reaching the rank of Captain. Huber was also an unrepentant Nazi who in a 2017 interview with New Zealand’s Sunday Programme said, “Hitler was a clever man. He brought Austria out of the dump”. However, we all know what bringing “Austria out of the dump” meant for opponents of Nazism in general and specifically for the Austrian Jewish community.

Huber also claimed he knew nothing of the Holocaust until the very end of the war. A highly improbably scenario for a Captain in the Waffen-SS.  The Waffen-SS was declared a criminal organisation at the Nuremberg Trials due to the war crimes they committed. According to the Simon Wiesenthal Centre, they were responsible for many atrocities and were directly involved with the Holocaust.

The very unit Huber served in, the 2nd SS Panzer Division Das Reich, was directly responsible for the slaughter of 920 Jews near Minsk in September 1941 and the massacre of 642 French civilians in the village of Oradour-sur-Glane in the Limousin region on 10 June 1944.”
