Grandma Nisel and 15-year-old Elie Wiesel’s gold crown

Filed under: Holocaust — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 1:40 pm

The title of my post today is in reference to a long article, written by Caryolyn Yeager on her Elie Wiesel Cons the World blog.  I predict that some day Carolyn Yeager will be more famous than Elie Wiesel because of the fantastic job she has done in revealing the truth about Elie Wiesel.  Yeager’s latest article on her blog begins with the headline:

Why is Grandma Nisel not mentioned in Elie Wiesel’s Night?

Later on in the article, you will see this headline:

A fifteen-year-old with a gold crown?

Yeager questions Elie Wiesel’s claim that he had a gold crown at the age of 15, which he mentions in his book Night.  It is highly unusual for a person of 15 to have a gold crown on a tooth today, but it was not unusual for a Jewish teenager in the 1940s. Keep in mind that Anne Frank mentioned in her diary that she had to have a root canal on a front tooth while she was in hiding, so she had a gold crown when she arrived at Auschwitz at the age of 15.  (Did Elie Wiesel copy this little detail from Anne’s Diary?) The Frank family had invited a dentist to go into hiding with them because they anticipated that someone in the family might need some dental work.  The dentist brought all of his dental equipment with him.  Old photos of Anne’s father, Otto Frank, show that he might have had some gold crowns on his front teeth.

Yeager’s article is very long and involved, but it is a must read for everyone.  She has done a  detailed analysis of the books written by Elie Wiesel and also books that were allegedly written by Elie Wiesel.  You can read it here.  Prepare yourself to be shocked at her conclusions.


  1. I thought you were smarter than this furtherglory? “Allegedly written by?”

    Elie Wiesel wrote the books, the claim that he stole the identity another “Elie Wiesel” is an insane lie made up by another lying “Holocaust survivor.”

    It’s already been debunked – the Yiddish translation proves Elie Wiesel wrote it, not some much older “Lazar Wiesel” as Gruner claims, who didn’t say anything as another Jew assumed his identity and stole his book…

    CODOH needs to stop misleading truthseekers by running these idiotic, poorly researched lies.

  2. Thank you for the nice write-up and link. I’m not sure that a rool-canal requires a crown; I’m sure my first root canal was just given a large filling. In my experience, people usually don’t need crowns until the tooth has been filled a couple of times and there is not enough of the tooth left. Maybe Jews of European heritage have especially weak teeth (?), as here we have two Jewish teenagers with gold crowns. In pictures of Ann Frank smiling, she doesn’t open her mouth very wide and what you can see of her teeth is not good-looking.

    Can you imagine taking a dentist into hiding with you … instead of a doctor? Must have been a family friend to begin with. I don’t believe much about the Anne Frank story and would like to hear from the dentist himself. As for Elie Wiesel’s story, he says his gold crown was removed in the camp lavatory by a prisoner-dentist using a spoon to pry it off. This seems almost impossible, as dentists have to cut crowns in half with a drill, and then use other precision instruments to get them off. Elie would have been left with a stump that would have been quite vulnerable to infection. He doesn’t mention any further dental work either at that time or later. The subject is just forgotten.

    Perhaps making a point of a 15-year-old with a gold crown being something unusual is not a good point. It’s just the way it seems from my life experience … but I’m not Jewish.

    • The first SS men were required to be at least 6 feet tall and have perfect teeth. I wonder if this requirement was to weed out any potential Jewish candidates for the SS since the Jews were famous for being short and having bad teeth.

      I assumed that a root canal needed a crown, as I had a crown put on after my first and only root canal. (It was not a gold crown.)
