CNN show “Voices of Auschwitz” hosted by Wolf Blitzer

Last night, I watched the CNN special, entitled Voices of Auschwitz.  The show featured a select group of survivors of Auschwitz, who triumphed over the evil Nazis, by going on to become rich and famous. One of the survivors who was featured, very prominently, in the show was 81-year-old Eva Moses Kor, the twin sister of Miriam Moses, who died at an early age after she was liberated from Auschwitz, 70 years ago, on January 27, 1945. When the CNN show starts, we see a recent color close-up photo of the face of Eva Moses Kor.

I previously blogged about the killing of the Hungarian Jews on this blog post: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2014/11/17/update-on-oskar-groening-the-ss-guard-at-auschwitz-who-didt-kill-with-his-hands-but-was-part-of-that-killing-machinery/

Very early in my blogging career, five years ago, I blogged about how some of the incoming Jews were marched to the gas chambers at Auschwitz-Birkenau, while others were marched to the showers: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2010/12/07/the-people-who-walked-on-at-auschwitz-birkenau/

Then we see a photo of the famous sign that says “Arbeit Macht Frei” which is now the slogan of the Jews when they complain about the evil perpetrated by the Nazis in the Holocaust. I blogged about the meaning of this sign at https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2011/01/01/arbeit-macht-frei-slogan-hi-jacked-by-holocaust-historians/ The  Arbeit Macht Frei sign is over the gate into the Auschwitz main camp, which was a Class I camp for resistance fighters or illegal combatants. The famous “death camp” where Jews were gassed was Auschwitz-Birkeanau, which did not have this sign.

The “Arbeit Macht Frei” sign was used only at Class I camps, so it was not over the gate into the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp, where Eva Moses Kor was a prisoner. However, she claims, in the Voices of Auschwitz show, that she was taken to Block 10 in the main camp, where Dr. Mengele did experiments on her and her twin sister.

Block 10, where Dr. Mengele allegedly did his experiments, has been off limits to tourists for many years, and the windows are blocked out.  During last night’s show on CNN, Eva Moses Kor took Wolf Blitzer into an empty room in a  building, which might have been a room inside Block 10.

Very early in the show, Eva Moses Kor takes Wolf Blitzer to the place where she says that she got off a cattle car when she arrived at Auschwitz. She shows him the very cattle car on which she arrived.  I have a photo of this same cattle car on my website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/AuschwitzScrapbook/Tour/Birkenau/Judenrampe.html

Wolf Blitzer is apparently not an expert on the Holocaust, or he would have known that when the Hungarian Jews, including Eva Moses, were brought to Auschwitz-Birkeanu, starting in May 1944, the train tracks had been extended INSIDE the Birkeanau camp and the Judenrampe was no longer being used.

Very early in the show, last night, Wolf Blitzer says that the Nazis “had a plan to wipe out the Jews.”  Then why were the Jews, who are featured in this show, allowed to survive Hitler’s evil plan?  Why didn’t Hitler carry out his plan? The answer might lie in the story of Anita Lasker Waldfisch, who played violin in the orchestra at the main Auschwitz camp; she was later sent to Bergen-Belsen, where she also survived.

Hitler loved music and there were several orchestras at Auschwitz, including an orchestra which played near the Krema III gas chamber at Auschwitz-Birkenau, as the prisoners were marching inside to be gassed.

I blogged about this at https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2011/07/09/the-orchestra-that-played-at-birkenau-as-the-jews-marched-to-the-gas-chamber/ I previously blogged about Anita Lasker Walffisch at https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/tag/orchestra-at-auschwitz/

Early in the show, Eva Moses Kor tells Wolf Blitzer that she “was crawling and couldn’t walk” on the day that she was liberated by Soviet soldiers on January 27, 1945. By February 1945, she had recovered to the point that she was leading the liberated prisoners out of the camp, along with her twin sister.

One thing that was brought out in the CNN film is that the Jews had had a “wonderful life” before Hitler came along. We see photos of the Jews before the Holocaust, as the Jews explain that they had a “happy childhood” and “beautiful homes.”

Life was good for the Jews in Germany until 1938 when we see a photo of a store window that had the word “Juden” painted on the window.  This was a photo taken at the event known as “Krisstallnacht” when the Germans boycotted Jewish stores in Germany.  This was the beginning of the end for the Jews in Germany. Soon life was over for the Jews: Eva Moses Kor summed it up, on the show, when she said: “In 1944, [the Nazis] came on horses to get the Jews [in Hungary where she lived].”

I wrote about the Hungarian Jews on this page of my website: http://www.scrapbookpages.com/AuschwitzScrapbook/History/Articles/HungarianJews.html

Eva Moses Kor was saved only because she was a twin. She explained to Wolf Blitzer that, when she got off the train at Auschwitz, Dr. Mengele asked her mother if her two girls were twins. Her mother then asked Dr. Mengele if being twins were a good thing, and he said “Yes”.

The mother was sent straight to the gas chamber, but Eva and Miriam were saved, because Dr. Mengele wanted to do evil experiments on twins.

At this point in the show, we hear the story of Renee Firestone. I wrote about Renee Firestone in this previous blog post: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2014/04/06/renee-firestones-shoah-testimony/

On the CNN show, Renee says that she was sent, by Dr. Mengele (who else) to the right, and her mother to the left “and straight to the gas chamber.” At this point, we see young girls frolicking in bathing suits. What does this have to do with anything? My interpretation of the scene was that these were Jewish girls living the good life before the Nazis came along and sent them to concentration camps.

Just after the bathing suits scene, we see photos of the tracks going into Aushwitz-Birkenau with scenes of ominous looking railroad switches.  Jews are getting off the trains with lots of suitcases.

My interpretation of these scenes is that the Jews were rich and living the good life — until the evil Nazis interrupted their lives and sent them to Auschwitz for no reason at all. The Jews had everything, before the Holocaust, except their own country.  Now they have a country, but they are flocking back to Germany.  I wrote about this on this blog post: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2014/10/13/jews-flocking-back-to-germany/

At this point in the CNN documentary, we see a photo of the Brausebad sign at Dachau.  Wait a minute! Were the Jews, who were sent to Auschwitz-Birkenau, taken to Dachau to be gassed in the shower room there? As far as I know, the gas chambers at Auschwitz did not have a sign that said Brausebad.

Just after the Brausebad sign at Dachau was shown in the CNN show, we see a photo of Hungarian women, wearing dresses, marching toward the women’s camp at Auschwitz-Birkenau.

Hungarian women march toward the women's camp at Birkeanu after having a shower

Hungarian women march toward the women’s camp at Birkeanu after having a shower

At this point in the CNN show, it should have been explained that these women had been given a shower, in a shower room at Auschwitz-Birkenau, and their heads had been shaved to get rid of any possible lice that spreads typhus. Instead, we are led to believe that the Nazis humiliated these women by forcing them to wear plain dresses, not even letting them wear blue and white striped clothing.

Finally, we get to the segment about Rene Firestone.  It turns out that Rene was a talented dress designer before she was sent to Auschwitz. We see some of her sketches of women’s dresses. The black and white photo, shown above, was in this segment of the show. The photo shows how the women at Auschwitz-Birkeanu were humiliated by being forced to wear plain dresses.  Would it have killed the Germans to have provided stylish dresses for the women at Auschwitz?

After she was liberated from Auschwitz, Renee went to Budapest where she became a dress designer.

The next part of the show is about Martin Greenfield. We see the Arbeit Macht Frei sign again as the narrator explains that Greenfield was sent to the main camp to work as a tailor for the Nazis. He was just 15 years old.

Martin’s first job at Auschwitz was washing the shirts of the SS men. He ripped a shirt while he was scrubbing the shirt with a brush. He thought that he would be killed because of this, but the Nazis let him live. We see a scene taken at Dachau, when former prisoners walked out of the camp, followed by a scene which showed Martin’s tailor’s shop in America with his name on the top of the building.

Martin Greenfield wrote a book, entitled Measure of a Man, in which he told about his success in dressing several Presidents in hand-sown suits.

Finally, we get to the story of Anita Lasker Wafisch; we see a recent photo of her walking out of her nice home. Then we see the famous Arbeit Macht Frei sign in the main Auschwitz camp. Anita was sent to the main camp, where she played in the orchestra there.  We see the photo of the orchestra at the main Auschwitz camp, which I included in the first part of this blog post. We hear the band playing march music.

Then we see a photo of the Sauna at Auschwitz-Birkenau, where incoming prisoners had to take a shower. Anita explained that the prisoners had to stay in the “quarantine camp” near the entrance to the Birkenau camp. Previously, in  the CNN show, we had seen Eva Moses Kor showing the barracks in the quarantine camp, while she claimed that these were the barracks where she had to live.  Is Eva Kor losing her memory? The photo below shows the barracks in the quarantine camp which are open to visitors.  Eva Kor did not live in  the quarantine barracks, shown in my 2005 photo below.

Quarantine barracks near the entance to Aschwitz Birkeanau camp

Steven Spielberg was shown in the CNN show, as he says: “Auschwitz was an efficient killing machine.” This show was about SURVIVORS of Auschwitz, who went on to fame and fortune, not about prisoners who were killed.

We see Spielberg as he walks under the Arbeit Macht Frei sign; he puts his hand in some mud, and then says that he has the “remains of mass murder on his hand.”

Then we hear Renee Firestone say that Auschwitz was the “worst atrocity in human history.”  There have been numerous atrocities in human history, and this CNN show is one of them.

  1. Oldie but goodie

    Why believe HoloHoax?
    Holocaust or Hoax Jurgen Graf p.149-51

    A question to which revisionists would like a convincing answer: What is the explanation for the irrational behaviour of an entire people which apparently believes in an absurd (Holocaust) legend? 
    The Holocaust — with its gas chambers which constantly change location; its millions of victims who disappear without a trace into blue vapour at Auschwitz, Majdanek and Treblinka, after being murdered by Hitler’s SS butchers, either with Zyklon B insecticide or Diesel exhaust, not to mention mass shootings Babi Yar-style (where the victims also disappear without a trace) — is, and remains, first and foremost a unique proof of the monumental stupidity of our age. In the early 1980s — when the major absurdities of the Holocaust swindle had already been exploded, with the exception of a few details — most revisionist researchers thought it inconceivable that the legend could persist more than a few more years. Since then, more than 35 years have elapsed, and the Lie continues to drag out its existence, filthier and more luxuriant than ever! Cracks are appearing in the edifice of lies, doubts are appearing — here and there, in the press, in a few articles, in many private conversations — as to the truth of the Establishment version of the fate of the Jews under the Third Reich. 

    People mention the possibility of minor errors or exaggerations; but almost everyone continues to accept the story as basically correct. It is precisely this general acceptance which is the biggest puzzle to revisionists — and to any reasonable person 
    with a minimum knowledge of history. Really, how can anyone of normal intelligence, for example, view the room which is shown to millions of tourists on the grounds of the former camp of Auschwitz as the “only Nazi gas chamber remaining in original condition”, without immediately realizing that the physical capacity of the room — not to mention its immediate surroundings, for example, its proximity to the hospital located nearby — would make any mass execution using a highly dangerous poison gas impossible? The unspeakable atrocity stories spewed forth to visitors by officials of the Auschwitz Museum, deserve only ridicule. But the very opposite occurs: in these shrines dedicated to the Holocaust religion, people become intellectual cripples: awe-struck, their senses paralyzed, they gape at everything as if it were plausible, and solemnly swallow nonsensical fairy tales! Even the generation of Germans which lived through the war — i.e., the “generation of criminals”, those who supported the National Socialist system which is now slandered all over the world, who remained true to that system and fought for it to the bitter end, with unprecedented self-sacrifice and devotion of spirit — that generation no longer knows what to believe after half a century of filth and lies. 

    They confuse their personal firsthand experience, that which they saw and experienced themselves, with that which they think they should have seen or experienced (according to the official version of history). Faced with the accusations and ignorance of succeeding generations, the generation of the war years joins in with the chorus of self-incrimination or takes refuge in resigned silence. And yet, – if the gas chambers were technically impossible and the whole story is therefore a lie; – if no material evidence of the crime remains, since the Nazis “destroyed all traces of their crimes at the last moment”; – if millions of bodies simply disappeared into blue vapour, so that not a single body of a single gassing victim has ever been found; – if the official version of history is based on nothing but contradictory “eyewitness testimonies” of witnesses who were never subjected to cross-examination, and confessions extorted from “criminals”; – if a forensic report, including a reconstruction as is ordinary practice in an ordinary murder case, has never even been attempted; – if expert reports on the technical feasibility of the mass gassings are never performed by the courts, but only on behalf of private parties, and if no technical refutation of these reports can be produced. Then how is it then possible for the world to believe this series of grotesque hallucinations? 

    If you ask these questions, most people are either surprised or shocked. But some people, particularly, young people — who often react spontaneously and emotionally – immediately and spontaneously declare their conviction that the Holocaust is absurd. One hears remarks like the following: “How could I have believed such nonsense for all those years?” The revisionist may perhaps be pleased in the belief that he has won a new adherent. But in most cases, this is a great mistake. When the shock wears off — the shock which sets in following the discovery of a new truth, the new convert returns to his old environment, where it is almost impossible to find any information on the subject other than all-pervading Holocaust propaganda. The average person lacks the courage to deviate from his environment; the mass media, of course, are all around us. Upon the slightest expression of doubts, the inevitable reply will be that he has spoken with a horrid, lying Nazi, that he has heard a load of lies, and that he had better forget everything he heard. This is particularly true, unless the convert is a hero willing to jeopardize his social and professional position for historical truth. Since even the crudest lie can be obfuscated and explained away, the heretic falls away from his new belief and returns to the shrine of the incredible. Credo quia absurdum est. What at first seemed absurd — in comparison to reasonable information about the absurdity of the Holocaust religion — once again seems convincing. In a society in which propagandists control the media, those who stray from the fold are quick to permit themselves to be persuaded once again that the unanimous opinion (Vox Populi, Vox Dei) which confirmed the reality of the mass extermination of the Jews for over a half a century, bears incomparably more weight than the statements of a single “Nazi”. 

    This abandonment of the elementary duty to seek the truth can, however, have unexpectedly unpleasant results. Today, even re-educated Germans — despite their anti-fascist fanaticism — are regarded with mistrust, even hostility, by many people in all parts of the world. 
    The Zionists and their stooges are skilful at ensuring the perpetuation of this hostility, for example, through hundreds of films, largely produced by Jews, which depict German soldiers either as simple fools or sadistic beasts. 
    The passivity and cowardice of the majority of the German people today is their decisive contribution to the perpetuation endless hatred. All of German contemporary history has been turned into a sort of crime sheet by the Allied victors. The Germans swallow everything in complete passivity. 
    A person who refuses to defend himself, ought not to wonder if he is found guilty. He deserves no respect, and should expect none. Germans compete with each other in vomiting upon their own people and themselves at the same time. Do they really expect to gain any sympathy abroad in this way? 

    Let us nevertheless attempt to understand the reasons for this apparently illogical behaviour on the part of the German people. 
    Perhaps the main reason for it is the knowledge, or instinctive sense, that any critical discussion of the so-called Holocaust is dangerous; it can cost the victim his job, his position in society, and even destroy his family. In addition, many people don’t want to know much about the Holocaust, which is the principal accusation against the German people, since they intuitively feel that many things about it simply cannot be true. They are afraid to know whether the Holocaust is a pack of lies, or just a lie or two; anyone doubting the details of the official version of history runs the risk of being compelled to question the story as a whole. 

    And that is just what our contemporaries, set on their peace and quiet and comfort at any price, do not want. 
    On the other hand, it is not easy to live with a lie which one should long ago have recognized as such, and, at the same time, to act as if it were no lie at all. For example, how should the mother of a family, who knows to a certainty that the gas chamber yarn is a lie, answer a child who asks, eyes wide-open with wonder: “Mama, teacher told us that German soldiers gassed the Jews. Did Grandpa gas the Jews, too?” The best way to evade a question like that, which is complex and painful, is simply to know nothing. So the mother simply tells the over-curious child, “I don’t know, ask your teacher.”

  2. Everybody wants to jump on the band wagon for this one. Mexico City. They’re the latest to open a museum. It’s called the “memory and tolerance museum”. What possible reason would they need a museum there,exhibiting the crap the nazis pulled. The population of Jews in Mexico is about 40,000. The majority being in Mexico city . Mexico has a population of about 120 million. 1.7 million are Mayan . The Mayans experienced genocide. The entire country of Mexico has a Jewish population of about 44,000. That’s a drop in the bucket. Considering Guatemala ( where the Mayans fled from to avoid genocide) is Mexicos next door neighbor . Wouldn’t it make more sense to have an exhibit to illustrate the crimes that occurred in Guatemala against the Mayan people? I mean there’s hardly dick for Jews living in Mexico .

    • The Holocaust Museum in Mexico will be for the goyim. When I visited the US Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC. I did not see any visitors whom I could identify as Jewish.

      The low-level people who worked there were almost all young African Americans. I interpreted this to mean that these jobs are not high paying jobs that Jews would want.

      Comment by furtherglory — February 10, 2015 @ 7:16 am

      • I just found it odd. I figure doing an exhibit on the Mayan genocide in Guatemala would make more sense. Guatemala is their neighbor . Their country is going to the proverbial “dogs” big time. I don’t know what the cost of the building was. Whatever the cost was,that money should’ve been invested in their country. The blacks were probably employed so the upper crust at the museum could dog the s**t out of them. I lived in south Florida years back. It had a high population of Jews . I have never scene one group of people that were as racist towards the blacks,as the Jews . Some of the Jews I knew,would make the Klan look like Boy Scouts .

        Comment by Tim — February 10, 2015 @ 8:30 am

        • Tim — Holocaust museums are built with Jewish money. Jews want a Jewish genocide museum, not a Mayan genocide one, so that’s what they get. For the Mexicans it’s one more tourist attraction in their city, so why not?

          Don’t try to use your kind of reasoning when it comes to Jews and “Holocaust.” :-))

    • Every morning, I check the statistics for my blog, so that I can see which country the visitors are from. There is never more than one visitor from Mexico. Almost all of the visitors to my blog are from the USA and the UK, plus a few from each country in Europe. Curiously, very few people in Germany read my blog.

      The lack of visitors to my blog, who live in Mexico, indicates to me that the people in Mexico are not interested in the Holocaust.

      Comment by furtherglory — February 10, 2015 @ 7:32 am

      • I’m not surprised. Why would they have any reason to study up on the holocaust. I don’t see where they can relate to it. The closest they came to being involved in WW2 was when hitler ask the then leader to invade Texas . That’s why I said if they want to have that museum,set it up to where he citizens of Mexico have something to relate to( genocide in Guatemala ).

          • Trust me on this. I’m a native Texan .its not in the history books. In 10th grade we were studying the Alamo . Our teacher mentioned how we booted Antonio Lopez Santa Anna out of the country. She said if hitler had his way,we’d be kicking the Mexicans out again. Something about how he’d give them Texas back. Now we got La Raza wanting Texas and Arizona back. La Raza is the Mexican version of the KKK

  3. “One thing that was brought out in the CNN film is that the Jews had had a “wonderful life” before Hitler came along. We see photos of the Jews before the Holocaust, as the Jews explain that they had a “happy childhood” and “beautiful homes.” Life was good for the Jews in Germany until 1938 when we see a photo of a store window that had the word “Juden” painted on the window.”

    Yes, pre-Nazi Germany was a real heaven on earth for Jews, but it was also a hellish hole for most non-Jews. But has Germany been created only to be a nation of a great majority of Aryan serfs and a small minority of Semitic aristocracy forever? The Torah and the Talmud would of course answer: Yes! Our beloved democratic leaders would give a similar answer. The curse of history also tends to show that the right answer is “yes”. But others would give another answer if they were offered such an opportunity by a great liberator?

    I guess that lice also regard delousing as an infamy. But should anybody let his pet be harrassed by lice bitings for life only because lice dislike delousing?😉

  4. . Doesn’t the following ring like something from WW2? Was there a holocaust in NYC in 1890? Why not?

    Quote:
    … Typhus fever and small-pox are bred here, and help solve the question what to do with him. Filth diseases both, they sprout naturally among the hordes that bring the germs with them from across the sea, and whose first instinct is to hide their sick lest the authorities carry them off to the hospital to be slaughtered, as they firmly believe. The health officers are on constant and sharp lookout for hidden fever-nests. Considering that half of the ready-made clothes that are sold in the big stores, if not a good deal more than half, are made in these tenement rooms, this is not excessive caution. It has happened more than once that a child recovering from small-pox, and in the most contagious stage of the disease, has been found crawling among heaps of half-finished clothing that the next day would be offered for sale on the counter of a Broadway store; or that a typhus fever patient has been discovered in a room whence perhaps a hundred coats had been sent home that week, each one with the wearer’s death warrant, unseen and unsuspected, basted in the lining.

    The health officers call the Tenth the typhus ward; in the office where deaths are registered it passes as the “suicide ward,” for reasons not hard to understand; and among the police as the “crooked ward,” on account of the number of “crooks,” petty thieves and their allies, the “fences,” receivers of stolen goods, who find the dense crowds congenial. The nearness of the Bowery, the great “thieves’ highway,” helps to keep up the supply of these, but Jewtown does not support its dives. ….

  5. Painting the windows so no one can see in? In a word,”drama”. What. Bad memories will come up if survivors of tourists happen to in there. The entire place should bring up bad memories. The livestock rail car was the “exact one” that lady came in on ? I want her secret to memory retention. I can barely remember what I had for breakfast. 10 bucks says that railcar has been restored. If not,it’s held its age damn good. If it was restored,it’s not gonna look like it did on the day it bought her to that camp. CNN was involved in this. They probably told her to what to say and what not to say. This is beginning to be the proverbial definition of “overkill”.

  6. Wolf Blitzer himself was born in Germany, in a displaced-persons camp in Augsburg.

    Comment by Jett Rucker — February 7, 2015 @ 12:51 pm

    • Augsburg was a sub-camp of Dachau, which was very close to the Dachau main camp. Several Jewish women were sent there, from other concentration camps because they were pregnant.

      Other women, who were pregnant, were sent to one of the Kaufering sub-camps of Dachau, where their babies were born. Wolf Blitzer’s mother must have been one of the mothers who gave birth at a Dachau sub-camp at Augsberg.

      I blogged about new born babies at Dachau on this blog post; https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2010/02/12/new-born-babies-at-dachau/

      Comment by furtherglory — February 7, 2015 @ 2:30 pm

      • FG
        Dachau had four sub-camps in the Augsburg region:
        1. Augsburg
        2. Augsburg-Haunstetten
        3. Augsburg-Kriegshaber
        4. Augsburg-Pferrsee
        Only Augsburg-Kriegshaber had 500 Hungarian Jewish women which came from Auschwitz and was located at 160 Ulmer Strasse. Approximately 300 of them worked at the Michelwerke producing mainly electrical relays for the Luftwaffe. There is no mention that pregnant women from other camps were sent to any of these camps. Flora Klein who was an inmate and apparently lived after the liberation in the United States does not indicate anything like this, nor is it recorded during her statement in: Häftlingsberichte im Ermittlungsakt der Zentralen Stelle Lugwigsburg in: BArch Ludwigsburg, ZStL IV 410 147/75. (Prisoner investigative act of the Central Office in Ludwigsburg: BArch Ludwigsburg, ZSTL IV 410 147/75.
        What is your source?

        Comment by Herbert Stolpmann — February 7, 2015 @ 5:00 pm

        • I didn’t know that there were FOUR sub-camps at Augsburg. Thanks for providing all this information.

          Wolf Blitzer was born in Augsburg in 1948. This indicates that his mother was PROBABLY an inmate at a sub-camp at Augsburg and that she had previously been an inmate at Auschwitz-Birkeanau. She was PROBABLY marched out of the Auschwitz camp on January 18, 1945, and eventually taken to a camp in Augsburg. I recall that there was a DP camp at Augsburg after World War II ended. Augsburg must be a nice town, because I recall that many Americans in the military went there to visit the town.

          Wolf Blitzer’s mother might have stayed on in the town of Augsburg after the DP camp was closed. Or maybe the DP camp was in existence for several years after the war. The DP camp at Bergen-Belsen was in existence for 10 years after the war.

          In any case, the point that I was trying to make in my blog post is that Wolf Blitzer knew the truth about the Holocaust, but he went along with the lies told by the survivors in the CNN show. However, it is also possible that the survivors on the CNN show are losing their memory in their old age. I can’t remember everything that happened 70 years ago either.
