A picture is worth a thousand words: Is that Stephan Ross in a photo taken at Dachau? (Updated)

Recent photo of George Scott, who was liberated from Dachau concentration camp

I have received an e-mail from George Scott who doubts that Stephan Ross is in the photo below, which was included with his e-mail message to me. Stephan Ross has identified himself as the young boy on the far left, but was he actually at Dachau on the day that the camp was liberated?

George Scott is the 14-year-old boy, 2nd from the left

George Scott says that he is the 14-year-old boy, 2nd from the left, at the liberation of Dachau

This quote is from the e-mail message that I received from the son of George Scott:

“The young boy on the left” in this picture is NOT Stephen Ross, it is my father, George Scott. I have reached out to his family who have not ‘cleared the miscommunication”. His son Michael P. Ross sits appointed by President Obama…

The photo above is from a book about George Scott, who has identified himself in a photo taken at the Dachau liberation.

The reason that I am putting this up on my blog is that it is possible that Stephan Ross is receiving honors that should go to George Scot.

I have a whole page on my website devoted to the story of Stephan Ross because, frankly, I don’t believe his story.

The story told by George Scott is more believable: he mentions that he was a prisoner in one of the 11 Kaufering sub-camps of Dachau. In the last days, before the Dachau camp was liberated, the prisoners in the Kaufering camps were brought to the main Dachau camp.

George Schoot mentions that he was in one of the Kaufering sub-camps of Dachau

George Scottt mentions that he was in one of the 11 Kaufering sub-camps of Dachau

This quote, regarding Stephan Ross is from my website:

Begin quote

According to the book “Dachau 29 April 1945, the Rainbow Liberation Memoirs,” edited by Sam Dann, Stephen Ross (real name Szmulek Rozental) was one of the lucky few who was rescued in the nick of time when Dachau was liberated. Ross was interviewed for the book and according to his own story, he was one of the 1,800 prisoners who were crowded into one quarantine barrack, which was designed to hold only about a hundred prisoners.

Ross said that the prisoners in the quarantine barrack had not been fed for two weeks before the Seventh Army arrived. Food was scarce, and according to Ross, the prisoners were fed only occasionally when they were given “a biscuit, hard as a rock and covered with mold.”

From the quarantine block, Ross said that 80 to 100 prisoners a day were carried out and put on the pile of dead bodies near the barbed wire fence, from where they were taken to the crematory.

According to Ross, the quarantine block was where the German SS Doctors Sigmund Rascher and Klaus Schilling selected prisoners for their ghastly experiments. The doctors “removed thirty to forty prisoners on a daily basis for experiments” according to Ross.

Ross said that he “had been isolated in quarantine for experiments since 1944.”

On the day of liberation, Ross made his way to the main gate, although he said that he “was very weak and hardly able to walk.”

With the help of his brother, who was also in the camp, Ross made it to the front of the crowd and was included in one of the most famous photographs of the liberation, shown at the top of this page.

The photo above shows Stephan Ross with his son Mike Ross in June 2002.

Quoted below is the continuation of the article on my website about Stephan Ross.

Begin quote

After the liberation of Dachau, Ross had to stay in the camp until the typhus epidemic was brought under control. When he was released, he made his way to Munich where he was hospitalized for 6 months and treated for tuberculosis.

He was then sent to a Displaced Persons camp for orphans at a former forced labor camp in Landsberg am Lech, near Munich. Finally, he was brought to America where he was able to recover his health.

Stephan Ross is the founder of The New England Holocaust Memorial in Boston.

Like so many others Stephan Ross suffered terribly. His back was broken by a guard who caught him stealing a raw potato. Tuberculosis wracked his body. He once hid in an outhouse, submerged to his neck in human waste, to save himself from being shot. At one time he was hung [by his arms] for eating a raw potato. At age fourteen he was liberated from the infamous torture camp Dachau by American troops. Stephen will never forget the soldiers who found him, emaciated and nearly dead. They liberated him from a certain death.

When Stephan and his older brother, Harry, the only other surviving family member, were released from the Dachau Camp to seek medical attention, they came upon a U.S. Tank Unit. One of the soldiers jumped off his tank, gave Stephan and Harry his rations to eat and put his arms around Stephen. Stephan fell to his knees, kissed the G.I.’s boots and began to cry for the first time in five years.

The soldier took out of his pocket a piece of cloth and gave it to Stephan to wipe his tears. Stephan later found out that it was a small American Flag with 48 stars. This small flag is a treasured item and it will be kept by Stephan and his children as a symbol of freedom, life, compassion and love of the American soldiers.

At the age of 16, Stephan was brought to America in 1948 under the auspices of the U.S. Committee for Orphaned Children. He was illiterate, having had minimal education prior to the Nazi occupation of Poland in 1939. Over the years, he managed to earn three college degrees. Stephan made a new life in the Boston area and has worked for the City of Boston for over forty years.

  2. The presently running Jewish show trial in Germany of Oskar Groening is giving the MSM-Holocaust-Propaganda department massive publicity to further entrench the ” message”.
    Whether this gentleman was ever in Auschwitz as a guard or book keeper is unclear and from what periods is also unknown. He is most famous for being a fighter against ” Holocaust Denial ” according to Wikipedia the Jewish internet Encyclopedia.
    He emerged in the 1980s just when people started to realise that there were many questions with regard to the ” gas chambers” and has been very very useful to the Jews. A man who was totally unknown rather like the English fantasist Denis Avery suddenly obtained media attention by taking a few memories from half a century before and molding them to fit the narrative. He became the ” good guy” and who wouldn’t want to be the ” good guy” . His family could be proud of him as he was fighting the evil deniers and old dead Nazis!
    He even has a IMDb page . He didn’t expect to appear in a trial in 2015 but I m sure he has been reassured that as long as he keeps to the script he will be ok.
    The Daily Mail which earns money by propagating the Jewish story headlines this trial every day. A couple of comments got through at 6 am attached to todays report indicating that the censor was not on the ball. The comments pointed out that next to the ” gas chambers” was a football field. These comments have now been removed and no doubt the ” moderator” reprimanded.!

    • Could Peter provide a link for Groening’s IMDBpage, please. There is also an interesting discussion on the RODOH discussion forum about Groening.

    • Thanks for telling us about the IMDb page. I didn’t know what this was, so I looked it up on Wikipedia.

      I think that you are correct that Oskar will be O.K. He is too old to go to prison, and he will be sent to a nice nursing home, if he lives long enough to get through the trial. At this point, he can still use a walker to get into the courtroom, and he doesn’t have to be wheeled in on a stretcher. This trial will point out the difference between the Germans and the Jews; it might make people understand why Hitler wanted the Jews out of Europe.

  3. No one was “gassed” at Auschwitz or any other German camp. Although many autopsies were made on the dead by the Allies, none showed any evidence of gassing or poisoning. The evidence for “gassings” consists entirely of “eyewitness” statements. ALL of the “eyewitnesses” were LIARS and are easily shown to be liars; there are NO exceptions. The Germans who confessed about “gassings” did so o-n-l-y because of torture–far more brutal and sadistic than anything done by the US recently.

    The huge numbers of “holocaust survivors”–well into the hundreds of thousands, still alive today–are undeniable proof that the extermination claims are a hoax. “They” survived because the Nazis never tried to exterminate them in the first place. The Nazis kept them alive as best they could under nearly impossible circumstances. The r-e-a-l mass murderers were the western Allies.

    • Exactly. How many civilian targets did we bomb? How many innocent people were murdered through the bombing? Politicians and special interest groups think we’ll never notice the lies they’re trying to spoon feed us. I know I saw a picture on here where a soldier was standing in front of a bunch of caskets at Dachau. They want us to believe Hebs were gassed and torched there. Here’s my question. If they were gassed and baked there,why did they need caskets? That pic was staged like all the rest. That one bit em in the ass though

    • You are correct. The bodies of prisoners who died at Dachau were dug up by the American liberators and none were found that had been gassed. The body of a person, who is gassed, turns red as the person dies a horrible death. There were piles of bodies at Dachau, but they had died of typhus. There were no bodies, which had turned red, that were found. There were very few gas chambers, anywhere in the world, in the 1940ies. AFAIK, there were no homicidal gas chambers in Germany.

      Comment by furtherglory — April 20, 2015 @ 1:58 pm

      • It is wrong to say there were “very few gas chambers, anywhere in the world in the 1940ies.” The Germans had plenty of small gas chambers and even large gas chambers with which they fumigated entire railroad trains. Those gas chambers would have been ideal for mass extermination, Please visit my website and read:

        • A question please. Dr. Mingle was labeled a “sick f**k. He was fascinated by midgets. Now this part is what I heard. If they had any midget s come through,he’d slice and dice em. One group of midgets came through t. The Ovitz family. They were entrrtainers. He pulled them off to the side. They kept him amused, if he was such a hard nosed, evil person why dId he go out on a limb for the midgets

          • Dr. Mengele was a perfectly decent doctor who never engaged in any atrocities. Tales like Tim has recited above are based on nothing but outright lies–and NO real evidence, documentary or otherwise, at all

            • Hey Susie. I’m here trying to figure out the truth. Demonstrsble you missed my point. I’m asking “if he was such a monster,why would he bother saving people?” I’m not the one spreading BS. You got the liberals doing that. Process what you read before you open your mouth.

              Comment by Tim — April 21, 2015 @ 4:23 am

            • Okay. I remember hearing about all the experiments that went on there. At the time when heard about them,some I found questionable,but I still bought into it. I saw something today where they’re prosecuting a guard at auschwitz ( provided he lives through the trial). He’s talking to the press while he’s on trial (at least that’s what I’ve deduced). I’m not sure how the laws work in the country he’s in,but I’m pretty sure his defense attorney is gonna tell him ,”keep your piehole shut”. I mean he makes some comment outside the court,they’ll use it against him. This fool is yammering on about how he was aware of some 300,000 deaths. At the same time I saw an article in Stars and Stripes were Wiesenthal said something to the effect that,” time we move on”. He said don’t forget what happened,but enough is enough. He said he don’t want to see grand children or great grandchildren,pointing fingers and saying things like,”there’s there relatives of murderers . There was also in some issue of Stars and Stripes ,a letter Wiesenthal wrote saying,”the only place that had gas chambers was Poland “. He also said auschwitz was never a death camp. I imagine if I spend a bit more time,I could probably find that 2nd article. I found something else. Spielberg had made a little documentary. It was put together with video interviews with survivors. He’s got a ton of them at some Jewish museum he has. Well somebody else made a documentary on camp life. They had video taped interviews with survivors. The camp they were in wasnt Club Med,but it wasn’t hell. There was a picture of a sign at the camp. I don’t remember where they said the sign was,but it was a sign that listed the camps daily schedule. It didn’t look like an easy schedule,but it was structured. This one lady spoke of there was a piano in one of the buildings. Not hard to figure it wasn’t im the best shape,but they were allowed to use it. One of the camp members every once in a great while the would see films. Yeah they German films. Better part were propaganda. Wouldn’t expect anything less.

      • “The body of a person, who is gassed, turns red as the person dies a horrible death.”

        Not really. The body of a gassed person turns red because of a bright red pigment in their blood called carboxyhemoglobin (carbon monoxide poisonings) or because of increased venous hemoglobin oxygen saturation (hydrogen cyanide poisonings), not because of any kind of pain. Numerous people die every year, quietly falling asleep, without even noticing that they are being gassed to death with carbon monoxide.

  4. Wow ! This is great stuff ! Hid in the outhouse. Hey. I wouldn’t wanna go hand to hand with an “outhouse turd”. They are far more vicious than their domesticated brother,”the indoor plumbing turd”. This guy is one sick f**k! I found this PoS another site. The article was called,”a holy hoax museum”. This guy is nothing more than a “sick ass pedophile” ( a child abuser at best)! This sick f**k sat and regaled children with his BS lies. They had to resort to “cannibilism”(don’t know if that’s spelled right.dont really ).bet silence of the lambs is this dickheads favorite movie. He’d probably try to make you believe he’s a technical consultant on TV show,”the walking dead”. He then goes on to amuse the children by saying,”they carved animal figures from the bones”. WTF! This is one sick bastard! Who the f**k is this godless,son of a pig. The Donner Party came to an agreement. No one would ever know how they survived in the mountains. Someone let the”cat outta the bag”. They became outcasts. How does that line from the Castaways song go? “Liar,liar. Pants on fire. Your nose is longer than a telephone wire”. What did Dick Nixon say. ” I’m not a liar”. Hell no buddy. Compared this sack of shit,you’re a saint. He amused them with his anecdotes about arts and crafts with human remains. Damn near everything I saw when I went to ‘Nam,I’d rather forget. I sure as hell wouldn’t tell any child about those things. This f**ked up peice of offal obviously gets his jollies this way. Well if there is an afterlife,then I’ll look forward to meeting “Super Jew” in hell.

  6. OT (but related to this: …frankly, I don’t believe his story.)

    Just happened to see this: Leap into Darkness: Seven Years on the Run in Wartime Europe

    Young Leo Bretholz survived the Holocaust by escaping from the Nazis (and others) not once, but seven times during his almost seven-year ordeal crisscrossing war-torn Europe. He leaped from trains, outran police, and hid in attics, cellars, anywhere that offered a few more seconds of safety. First he swam the River Sauer at the German-Belgian border. Later he climbed the Alps on feet so battered they froze to his socks–…

    Etc etc.

    One has to be at least a bit skeptical of such accounts — no?

    But of course there are no skeptical reviews. I did notice this however: Leo Bretholz did not experience the things that the other authors did. That doesn’t mean that his story was not important but some others are more deserving of extra credit.

    So there you have the essence of what perhaps motivates some of these (often ludicrously improbable) ‘Holocaust’ tales — personal aggrandizement.

    However this cannot be discounted either: …he’s just another jewish liar doing his bit for the tribe by spreading tales of horror to guilt trip the goys into self-hate and eventual racial oblivion. He’s promoted as part of a psych warfare agenda to demoralize Whites.

    • You know what he looks like in the pic? A homeless jew on his way to the pawnshop,to pawn his most valuable treasures. Either that or he’s on the street corner in his LL Bean jacket,holding his “artifacts ” saying,”for a $100 dollars I will send you ,your very own,feel sorry for me. I’ve been f**ked over my entire life”. The donations will pour in so you can propagate your own lies. This guy is one lying ass PoS

  7. He once hid in an outhouse, submerged to his neck in human waste, to save himself from being shot.

    That’s probably where Spielberg got the idea for that famous scene in Schindler’s List.

    It seems safe to say his story is likely 90% lies.

    Comment by eah — April 19, 2015 @ 10:56 pm

    • You could be right that he got the idea for his outhouse story from the movie Schindler’s list, but I think that it is more likely that Spielberg got the idea from him. As I have explained before, the contents in an outhouse are not liquid. One cannot sink down, up to the neck, in an outhouse. My family had an outhouse when I was a child, so I know this for a fact.

      • …but I think that it is more likely that Spielberg got the idea from him.

        Yes, but…that’s also what I wrote — right? To repeat myself: That’s probably where Spielberg got the idea for that famous scene in Schindler’s List. My additional emphasis.

        But thanks for replying to my comment.

      …or where (Spielberg’s movie) Ross got the idea for his nice little horror tale. 😉

  8. Ross no doubt was a good buddy in Boston , the serially lying Paul Parks, who although exposed as a liar (No African Americans were part of any units that liberated concentration camps in Germany) douchebag Stephen Spielberg still him and his used his bullshit films. Spiel berg is an appropriate name for this POS. a rough translation is bullshit mountain.

      I would call that very rough.

      Spiel — the usual xlation would be game.
      — yes, Berg can mean mountain.

      • I left Spiel unxlated purposefully. Spiel as English slang has the connotation of sales pitch of a bullshit artist. I should have made that clearer. The blog has followers who manifest perspicacity as well as perspicuity.
