How does the story of Anne Frank prove the Holocaust?

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 10:26 am

The following quote is from an Op-Ed piece in the Los Angeles Times newspaper, which you can read in full here.

The [Rialto] school district has finally apologized — appropriately — and is dispatching all [Rialto School District] students and their teachers to the Museum of Tolerance’s new Anne Frank exhibition before they graduate next month. […]

Soon, nearly 2,000 teens from the Rialto School District will visit the Museum of Tolerance to meet and hear from Holocaust survivors. They will be encouraged to ask them questions and engage in a dialogue. Not one of them is likely to leave that day thinking the Holocaust didn’t happen. One day soon however, there won’t be any survivors left to share their real-life experiences. That’s when the ultimate challenge to truth will begin. Heaven help us all if we fail to provide young people with skills to recognize the difference between hate and history.

Sorry, but I don’t think that a display about Anne Frank is the right way to prove the Holocaust. In my humble opinion, the story of Anne Frank disproves the Holocaust, and here’s why:

1. Anne Frank was sent to the Auschwitz-Birkenau “death camp” after her hiding place was discovered, but she was not gassed.  She was somehow chosen to work, even though she was barely 5 feet tall and had no work skills of any kind.  When Anne arrived at Auschwitz, she was not in a healthy condition, after spending two years in hiding, yet she was not gassed.

After only two months at Auschwitz, Anne and her sister Margo were both sent on a SICK TRANSPORT to Bergen-Belsen.  The train that took them to Bergen-Belsen was monitored by the Red Cross because it was a SICK TRANSPORT.

2. Anne Frank’s mother died of tuberculosis after 5 months at Auschwitz-Birkenau. She was apparently sick when she arrived at the Auschwitz-Birkenau “death camp,” yet she was allowed to live, even though she was sick with a terminal illness.

3.  Otto Frank, the father of Anne Frank, was 56 years old when he arrived at the Auschwitz-Birkenau “death camp,”  where everyone over the age of 45 was automatically sent to the gas chamber.  Otto Frank was selected to work, but he didn’t want to work, so he paid a Jewish doctor in the camp to put him into the camp hospital, where he survived.

4. Otto Frank was allowed to stay in the camp hospital at Auschwitz-Birkenau, when the other prisoners were taken on a “death march” out of the camp.

5. Anne Frank’s school friends in Amsterdam didn’t go into hiding. They survived the Holocaust and went to Israel after the war.  They were sent to the Star Camp, the best section of Bergen-Belsen, instead of being sent to Auschwitz. After Anne’s family was discovered in their hiding place, they were sent to the punishment section of the Westerbork transit camp because they had gone into hiding, and from there they were sent to Auschwitz, instead of being sent to Bergen-Belsen.

6. Anne Frank was allowed to live at Bergen-Belsen, until she died of typhus, and was buried in a mass grave.

To sum up the Anne Frank story, everything in the saga is against the known facts of the Holocaust:

1. Sick prisoners were immediately sent to the gas chamber at Auschwitz-Birkenau upon arrival.

2. Old people were immediately taken to the gas chamber, upon arrival, at Auschwitz-Birkenau.

3. The prisoners at Auschwitz-Birkenau were forced to go on  a “death march” out of the camp for the purpose of killing them.

Here is one final quote from the Op-Ed piece in the Los Angeles Times:

But historians would no more debate whether the Holocaust happened than they would whether Nazi Germany unleashed the blitzkrieg on Poland on Sept. 1, 1939. These events are facts.

I am not a historian, so I DID debate the subject of  “whether Nazi Germany unleashed the blitzkrieg on Poland on September 1, 1939.”  on this post post:


  1. Have you been to Germany, or have you been to any of the death camps? Have you been to the Nazi Party Museum in Nuremburg? Or are you just another person who thinks that it is cool to reject and ignore history? The Germans were the most meticulous record keepers of all time, and the museum in Nuremburg is filled with historical evidence of the mass killings they performed during the war.

    I suppose that you also consider that the war crimes trials in Nuremburg, immediately after the war, where a huge number of people testified as to the brutality of the Nazis led to those concentration camp murders?

    And do you also refuse to believe that the SS roving death squads (Einsatzgruppen) in Russian were also a hoax? This organization was responsible for over a million executions, and is extensively documented. A simple Google search, will reveal a large number of authoritative sources of evidence about these groups, their methods, locations where they operated, etc.

    Your insistence that we have been led to believe “only” survivors is absurd, those survivors told their stories in hopes that everyone would hear what they went through, and attempt to not have it happen again. But with the incredible pile of evidence left behind by the Nazis, it is not necessary to depend upon survivor memories, the truth is contained in those Nuremburg museum records.

    Educate yourself, because your ignorance is being displayed when you continue to insist that the holocaust was a hoax.

    • I have been to Germany many times; the last time I was there was in 2008. I lived near Nuremberg for two years in 1957 and 1958. I visited Nuremburg for the last time in 1997. I have not had the opportunity to visit the new Museum in Nuremberg, but I did blog about the new Museum at

      I have been to many of the former camps, including Dachau (many times), Buchenwald, Sachsenhausen (twice), Auschwitz main camp and Auschwitz-Birkenau (twice), Majdanek, Natzweiler, Plaszow and Theresienstadt (twice).

      I wrote about the Nuremberg IMT on my website,
      This quote is from my website:
      Begin quote:
      For the most part, the International Military Tribunal charged the defendants, not with individual responsibility for specific crimes, but with a “Common Plan” to commit crimes.

      According to the book “Justice at Nuremberg” by Robert E. Conot, the idea for the Common Plan charges against the Germans came from Lieutenant Colonel Murray C. Bernays, a Lithuanian Jew who had emigrated to American in 1900 at the age of six. Before the trial, according to Conot’s book, Churchill and Roosevelt’s advisor Henry Morgenthau, Jr. had advocated that “the principal Nazi leaders should be charged with their crimes, then summarily shot.” Bernays argued for a trial as “the educational and therapeutic opportunity of our generation.” Regarding the Nazi crimes, Bernays wrote “The crimes and atrocities were not single or unconnected, but the inevitable outcome of the basic criminal conspiracy of the Nazi party.”

      There was nothing in international law which allowed a charge of participating in a “Common Plan.”

      The German war criminals were specifically charged with violating the Hague convention of 1907 by invading and attacking countries without a formal declaration of war and with the violation of the Kellogg-Briand Pact of 1928 which called for Renunciation of War as an Instrument of National Policy. Under each of the three counts in the indictment, a detailed list of all the German crimes was entered by each of the four Allied countries: Great Britain, the United States of America, France and the Soviet Union.

    • I have updated this blog post:

      It is the hoaxers themselves who cause people to become deniers. Beware of using photos which cause Holocaust denial.

  3. Your use of quotation marks whenever you use the term “death camp” shows your bias quite clearly.

    Comment by Nancy — June 2, 2014 @ 2:25 pm

    • I used the quotes because Auschwitz-Birkenau was a camp to which many Jews were brought, but were not killed. The term “death camp” means that it was a place where people were intended to be killed. Anne Frank was sent to Auschwitz-Birkenau but she wasn’t killed. If I had left out the quote marks, it would have sounded stupid to call the place a death camp, when people were not killed there.

  4. Los Angeles Times: “One day soon however, there won’t be any survivors left to share their real-life experiences. That’s when the ultimate challenge to truth will begin.”

    Concession about the fact that there exists no proof of a Nazi extermination of Europe’s jews during WW2? Except words told by ‘survivors’ – who could as well have said that they were deported to Mars in flying saucers and miraculously survived that trip – and by ‘perpetrators’ – trying to save their neck or having any other good reason to sing the victors’ song after Germany’s defeat in 1945 – of course.

    Whatever. The Rialto case is very illustrative of the Holohoax and what it’s built on. Bilateral discussion offered. Response: forced deportation to the Museum of Tolerance and emotional brainwashing by professional ‘survivors’ instead of an honest debate between students, which could have been a good opportunity to prove that there exist very numerous undeniable proofs of a mass murder of Europe’s Jews during the Second World War (as Kosher media and academics tell us). What a weird reaction from people allegedly having so many solid proofs on their side. What do they have to hide? What are they so afraid of?
