Natasha Kaplinsky cries for family Nazi deaths

Newsreader Natasha Kaplinsky has told for the first time how members of her family were massacred in the Holocaust.
The 34-year-old broke down in tears as she discovered the terrible truth about her ancestry while filming BBC1 series Who Do You Think You Are?
Kaplinsky is descended from Polish Jews on her father's side. For the programme she travelled to the small town of Slonim in Belarus, which was part of Poland during the Second World War, to research her history.
Her time there was "the bleakest four days of my life", she told the Radio Times.
Her great-uncle Abraham committed suicide in 1942 days after the Nazis murdered his youngest daughter, who was just two. A month after his suicide, Abraham's wife and nine-year-old daughter were also killed.
The girls were killed by hand because, as Kaplinsky explains: "The Nazi murder squads wouldn't waste a bullet on a child... I just couldn't process that. I couldn't handle it".
Her great-uncle Isaac and his wife were rounded up along with thousands of Jews in the town square in May 1942. Because he was wearing an armband to show he was a doctor, the local mayor chose to spare his life. The rest were not so lucky; that day, 2,524 Jews were shot dead and buried in mass grave in the forest.
Isaac went on to enlist with the Polish resistance. Kaplinsky's great-grandparents, Raphael and Melka, are believed to have been burned alive when the Nazis torched a synagogue.
Contrary to reports, her grandfather Morris was not killed - having moved to South Africa in 1929. He lived until his mid-70s. [That means only 5,999,999 jews died in the holocaust. Kaplinsky ought to be imprisoned for 5 years for denying the holocaust! Also, if the jews lied about grandfather Morris, they would lie about other fake holocaust victims, to generate sympathy and shekels.] Kaplinsky said making the programme had taken an emotional toll on her.
"It's funny, when you say you're doing Who Do You Think You Are?, people ask, 'Did you find any skeletons?' Well, I literally found skeletons. I found the saddest information you could possibly imagine. And it will be with me forever.
"When I came back from Belarus, I was in a state of shock. I came back into the newsroom, and people asked, 'How did the filming go?' I didn't know how to tell them that it was absolutely horrific, that I cried on camera, that I'm very distressed about what my family went through.
"I've never cried in such a public way before. As a journalist, my job is to be dispassionate - I should never tell people how they should feel about a story.
"Suddenly to be the centre of a story and to be crying, it made me feel very insecure."
I bet the BBC "forgot" to check if she is related to the Kaplinsky who was Kommandant of the Abu Ghraib torture center.
