Holocaust survivor says the Nazis were in such a hurry to kill the Jews that they didn’t bother with tattoos in the last days of Auschwitz

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust — Tags: , — furtherglory @ 10:25 am

In a news article in the online Wellsville Daily, which you can read in full here, Eva Abrams tells how she escaped death at Auschwitz-Birkenau.

This quote is from the news article:

Following the horrific account, students asked questions about her scars. She wasn’t tattooed.

“It was near the end of the war and they were in too much of a hurry to kill us, so they didn’t bother with the tattoos,” Eva said.

To go back to the beginning of the Eva Abrams story, this quote from the news article tells about how she survived:

[Eva and her family] arrived at Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland in the spring of 1944.

D-Day was a few weeks away and the Nazis were in retreat as Allied bombing increased, but the SS was determined to complete its “Final Solution” and eliminate as many Hungarian Jews as possible, Abrams told students at Bolivar Central School Friday as she gave her personal account of the Holocaust.

[…]

“As we got off the train, there was Mengele (Josef Mengele, an SS physician, infamous for his inhumane medical experimentation upon concentration camp prisoners at Auschwitz) and he pointed for my mother to go to the left and me to go to the right. My mother was only 50 years old and she was worried about what was going to happen to me,” Abrams said. Her mother and niece were sent to the gas chamber/crematorium. Abrams was sent to a barracks holding 1,000 women.

[…]

Abrams came very close to not surviving the concentration camp. Her mother, father, an older sister and her young niece didn’t survive. She recalled the 500-mile forced march, in the dead of winter, she and 1,000 other, starved, barefoot and nearly naked women, including her two older sisters, endured and how at the end of it only a family quirk may have saved her life when the German soldiers opened fire with a machine gun aimed at her and five other women.

“I fell down before they started firing. I don’t know why,” Abrams said.

  1. It is a known fact that many victims and survivors were not tattooed. My grandmother was not tattooed. She was liberated from Bergen-Belsen….your point? Once again where did all those 15 million people end up? Where are there only 14 million-16 million news on the planet. Do you have a fully functional brain?

    If there were no gas chambers why didn’t Eichmann use it as a defense? Rather his defense was yeah I did it only problem was I missed the other 4 million…but hey I was following orders.

    It took me not two seconds to find your precise quote. Typical nonsense. if there was any doubt about the gas chambers, let me assure you it would have been used in Eichmann’s defense…another common sense thing….I might want to find your source, because I don’t think that one is addressed. Other nazis also confessed…but the standard denier will just claim those are false testimony, I saw the auote in your lit, so save yourself the trouble…I know every one is lying the nazis the Jews, the German government. The allies, the Russians.

    But put it all aside, and just do the math.Revionists cannot explain how 15+ million in 38′ became 14-16 million in 2011….not without a massive killing.

    If you want to see a response to your cut and paste nonsense, and all the contradictions here is a collection of responses. But like I said just do the math and you can debunk yourself without it. If population Jew = 15 million in 1937, how can it only equal 15 million in 2012?

    • The answer could be a stable population, you clown. The only real increase in the UK population for example, is due to immigration and older people living longer. The Jewish population of the US was pretty stable until millions of Jews arrived post WW2, and I wonder where they came from?
      ‘Do the math’ my arse!

    • Neverforget you really should read the ADL/ Wiesenthal manual before commenting.on the Holocaust.
      Numbers of ethnic groups change over time and decline most commonly due to declining birth rates and for the Jewish people intermarriage.
      The English population of London in 1939 was 8 million now its is 3.8 million and London is a white minority city. That doesnt mean 4 million people have been holocausted.
      Having myself grown up in the UK and attended a good university I can estimate about 1 in 5 of my contemporaries would tell me they had a Jewish parent or grandparent but they themselves were not Jewish.

      Only laborers were tattoed and Belsen was not a labor camp. Maybe your grandmother was too young to be a camp laborer. Where was she imprisoned? Only Belsen or also other concentration camps?

  2. I only hope that these “survivors for profit” sow some seeds in the minds of some of these students. Maybe not due to the dumbed down education system where critical thinking is frowned upon.

    The lies are getting more and more far fetched, one hopes that a switched on student gets up and pokes holes in all their lies. A dream perhaps? Maybe but it’ll happen sooner or later.

  3. How could one or two SS guards climbing onto a roof to pour Zyklon B through holes and a few jewish inmates forced to drag the dead bodies out of the gas chamber and to cremate them prevent the Germans from tattooing their new inmates?

    Eva Abrams said: “In the concentration camp, she recalled, “We had prayed that President (Franklin D.) Roosevelt would come to our rescue. We didn’t realize then that he didn’t give a damn about what was happening to us.””

    She doesn’t even seem to know Auschwitz was liberated by Uncle Joe (Stalin) and not by Roosevelt. Suprising ignorance for an alleged Auschwitz ‘survivor’.

    Wasn’t this new obviously fictional story only written to answer the embarassing question “where is Elie Wiesel’s tattoo?”? 😉

  4. Another day, another liar.
    ‘She recalled the 500-mile forced march, in the dead of winter, she and 1,000 other, starved, barefoot and nearly naked women…’
    How do they get away with it?
    “I fell down before they started firing. I don’t know why,” Abrams said.
    Absolute nonsense…
