Hedy Epstein (the Jewish woman who was arrested in St. Louis) confronted Herman Goering at Nuremberg

Ninety-year-old Holocaust survivor Hedy Epstein has been in the news recently because she was arrested in St. Louis, MO as she protested against Gov. Jay Nixon’s actions in the aftermath of the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO.

A news story, which you can read here, mentioned that Hedy Epstein had “aided Allied forces” in the trials of the Nazi war criminals at Nuremberg in 1945.

This quote is from the news article:

“Epstein, who aided Allied forces in the Nuremberg trials, was placed under arrest in downtown St. Louis, Missouri, “for failing to disperse” during a protest of Gov. Jay Nixon’s decision to call the National Guard into Ferguson. Eight others were also arrested.”

I was dubious about Epstein’s involvement in the Nuremberg trials, so I did a search and found the video below. In the video, she explains about how she taunted Herman Goering, who was on trial at Nuremberg.

  1. IF HEDY WAS ON THE SIDE OF THE PROSECUTION AT THE NUREMBERG TRIALS,
    SHE WAS ON THE SIDE OF WHAT OUR SUPREME COURT JUSTICE HAS THE BALLS TO CALL\
    “A HIGH-CLASS LYNCHING.”
    ENOUGH SAID ABOUT HEDY.

  2. It should be possible to verify whether she was employed by the Allies at Nürnberg or not — her story is not, on its face, as laughably implausible/impossible as many others. If in the end it turns out she was not there, then it can be seen as just more proof that people — and organizations, for that matter — feel absolutely free to tell the most absurd lies about the ‘Holocaust’, without any fear of contradiction.

    Regarding this video, anyone who has seen Göring’s demeanor at Nürnberg — ie his defiance, including his at times masterful performances on the witness stand — will have a hard time believing he would “squirm” before a little woman.

  3. According to Hedy Epstein, at the Nuremberg Doctors’ “trial”, there was an Allied judge ignoring what a concentration camp was. In other words, at some time between December 1946 and August 1947, we are supposed to believe that an Allied judge had never heard anything about what had been at the center of Allied atrocity propaganda during WW2 (especially during the last months) and the overhyped one-year-long “trial” which had just been held during the previous months. Really? Was she serious? Were there judges living in caves at Nuremberg? What an idiotic allegation! What a shameless liar!

  4. In a research a historian found that this lady left Germany in 1939 with a KIINDERTRANSPORT to UK and can hardly be considered as a Holocaust survivor. I am eager to learn how she could be helpful at the Nurenberg trial at the age of 21.
