A newspaper article about a recent prison escape in America, which you can read in full here has brought back memories of a daring escape from Auschwitz, pulled off by two prisoners, Alfred Wetzler and Rudolf Vrba, in April 1944.

The news article about the American prison escape included this quote about Wetzler and Vrba:

Alfréd Wetzler’s escape from Nazi death camp Auschwitz is possibly the most important prison escape in history.

Wetzler, a Slovakian jew, escaped from Auschwitz [Birkenau] with fellow inmate Rudolf Vrba in April 1944 by hiding in a wood pile that other inmates soaked with tobacco and gasoline to fool guard dogs.

After four nights hiding among the wood, the two men donned stolen suits and overcoats and began a 80 mile journey to the Polish border with Slovakia.

In his pockets, Wetzler carried a report on the inner workings of the death camp, including a ground plan, details of the gas chambers, and a label from a canister of Zyklon B – the gas that the Nazi’s used to kill millions of inmates. It was the first detailed report about Auschwitz that the Allies regarded as credible, and led to the bombing of buildings that housed Nazi officials who dealt with the railway deportations.

120,000 Hungarian Jews are said to have been saved as a result.

I wrote about Rudolf Vrba on this previous blog post:

Scroll down, in reading my previous post about Vrba; the part about him is near the end.

Before I knew anything about the Holocaust, I read a book about Vrba and his famous escape from Auschwitz-Birkenau. I was amazed by his stories of life in Auschwitz.  He was living such a good life there, that I couldn’t understand why he escaped.  His motive in leaving the good life at Birkenau was apparently that he wanted to tell the truth lies about Birkenau.

The photo above is a still shot from a film made by the Soviet liberators of Auschwitz about 4 weeks after the camp was liberated. The children in front are wearing adult uniforms. The children at Auschwitz did not wear uniforms. Look at the chubby cheeks of the children; how did that happen in a death camp?


  1. FG. I’ve gotten to emails that have been in with the follow up comments I would get from some of these topics. All it says,” this message has no content “. What’s up with that? Thanks

    • I have no idea. I never send e-mails to people who comment on my blog.

      • It was one of those emails a person gets when a new comment is posted. This one was dealing with the lady that’s in trouble again in Germany for speaking her peice. It showed up in my email. It said ,”new comment”. Then the description of the topic it pertained to. Under that it said,”this message has no content”.does that make sense. That’s the best way I can explain it

        • I didn’t know this because I don’t get an e-mail when a new comment is posted.

          • Nevermind. I apologize . I don’t guess it would make that since this is your BBQ you’d be getting notified everytime someone one left a comment. Okay thanks.

  2. The Dominican Republic was one of the only countries at the Evian Conference that said it would take Jewish refugees from Europe during WWII. IIRC about 700 Jews settled there and commenced dairy and cattle farming. I believe their ancestors now have a virtual monopoly on meat and milk in that country. When Jewish gangster Meyer Lansky and his cronies were run out of Havana Cuba by Fidel Castro he went to the Dominican Republic to see what he could set set up there. I would venture to guess that the tourist industry in Santo Domingo and elsewhere is now overrepresented by Jewish luxury hotel owners a lá Miami and Las Vegas. Israel is a redout for Jewish oligarchs and gangsters of all stripe. It’s not a place rich Jews want to live so they don’t move there unless they have to. Of course, many keep homes there which they visit regularly. Tel Aviv is the Hebrew Honolulu. Ever notice the dearth of pictures of this city in the Western media? It glitters like Paris or New York at night because that’s where much of of the world’s wealth is hidden and invested. However, most of the pictures we we ever see of Israel are of orchards, settlements and the security wall. This is to keep everyone concerned about the precarious welfare of the only people on the planet who merit an exclusive nulcear ethnostate in the transglobal multicultural New World Order.

    • I’m surprised nobody tried to blame the Bugsy Siegal hit on some nazis that snuck into the country. At any rate I heard it was Luciano that wanted him gone. The jew did it to himself. In typical jew fashion he got greedy. Crossed the Italians . Wrong move.

  3. Latest news from ” Germany” an 86 years old lady has had her home ransacked by the police looking for evidence that she is a Holocaust Denier.

    • How is post war Germany any better than Nazi Germany? Still the same. The only difference is the Jews package it with smiles. Say I wonder what would happen if dropped a quick line to the German consulate in Houston ( it’s the one nearest my location) and ask how they call themselves a free country when they pull crap like this.

    • That should read,” had her house tossed by the jew nazis”

  4. FG something don’t make sense here. This question comes from the fake passport article you wrote. This “Evian conference “. They had it so they could decide where the Hebs could go to find safe haven “from the coming halocaust”. I could be wrong here ( if I am say so),but to me those four words seem to be talking about something that is “actually going to happen in the future”. If that’s the case and we knew all along,why did we play like a bunch of air heads at the end of the war when this shit started popping up? They had this conference to act like they were concerned for the jews. They said there was 32 countries present. I’ll bet dollars to donuts that every last one of those countries,were the ones that didn’t want the Jews . There was a part in there that mentioned what Uncle Adolph said when he heard about this conference. He said he hoped these countries would be practical enough to convert their sympathy for the criminals ( yeah that’s how he refered to the Hebs ) into practical aid. He went on to say in so many words,I’ll do what ever you want me to do if it means getting rid of them. He said he’d put em on luxury liners if he had to. Now to me that sounds like the thoughts of a rational individual. Not only that,but someone who is more than willing to work with other countries to get the Jews on their way. So if nobody wanted to adopt these knuckleheads,what was the point to this conference? What did they do? Have a pig roast with a couple kegs?

    • The quote you give comes from Wikipedia. It is attributed to Ronnie Landau’s book of 2006 and oft repeated since. There seems to be no reference to it before 2006 and the German Wiki which is highly pro Zionist doesn’t contain the quote. As Hitler didn’t speak English it would be interesting to read what he actually said in German. I am sure he was of the opinion that Jewry was a criminal conspiracy. Maybe an intelligent chap like you Ted could look into this?

      • I know he didn’t speak English . That’s probably not even verbatim. Who knows who he said that to. I took notice ,because it’s not the first time I’ve read comments he’s made to that effect. It seems to me by his “sympathy” line,that he figured it was all BS at that conference. I don’t remember history saying anything about huge amounts of jews rolling into this country or any other as far as that goes. Everytime I think about this story of woe from the Jews it reminds me of the Bill Murray line from the movie “Stripes”. “It means our forefathers were kicked out of every decent country in the world. We are the wretched refuse”.

    • “So if nobody wanted to adopt these knuckleheads,what was the point to this conference? What did they do?”

      The point of the conference was the admission of large numbers of European Jews into Palestine through unrestricted immigration. At that time, the British leaders were restricting Jewish immigration into Palestine (see the British White Paper of 1930 (partly cancelled by the MacDonald letter) and the British White Paper of 1939 (still debated at that time)) in order to avoid a general riot by the very numerous Muslims within their empire. So Zionist atrocity propaganda about Nazi Germany had been running at full speed for years when the Evian Conference was held. That’s that Zionist atrocity propaganda which brought the Evian Conference (as the Zionist Holohoax later brought the Bermuda Conference).

      Zionists always claimed that the spoliation of Palestine from its Arab inhabitants was the final/permanent/total/complete solution to the Jewish problem/question (in their own words). When you claim thay you bring the solution to a problem, you need that problem as crucially as a diabetic need insulin injections. Zionist atrocity propaganda was supposed to prove that there was no way out but the establishment of a Jewish state in Palestine. And that’s what the Holohoax finally achieved after the end of WW2…

    • I wrote about the Evian Conference on my blog in December 2010, a few months after I started blogging.

      This quote is from the blog post cited above:

      “After Austria and Germany were joined together [in 1938], the Jews were ordered to leave and most of them left for other countries in Europe. America had laws that had been passed in 1920 and 1921 which limited the number of emigrants from Germany and Poland. These laws were designed to keep Jews out of America. Instead of demanding that Congress change those laws, President Roosevelt called for a conference to find other countries willing to take the Jews.
      The Evian conference was a failure because no country wanted to accept the Jews, but the United States did agree to admit the full quota of Eastern Europeans and Germans allowed by our immigration laws, which had not been done up to that time.”

  5. Didn’t you say there’s usually “2sets” of photos ? You said 1 set was the real McCoy . The 2nd set somebody would Dr the hell out of to make it look worse than it was. These little shits in these pics are some pudgy looking bastards. I ain’t gonna shed any tears. Oh well like the Snickers commercial goes,”you’re not you when your hungry”.

  6. Thousands of people, Polish civilian workers and staff were coming and going daily at Auschwitz and Majdanek. Inmates were also released in large numbers during the war. Curiously none of them came with any credible story of mass homicide until May 1945.

    Comment by peter — June 8, 2015 @ 2:10 pm

    • At Auschwitz there had been different treatments of Polish political prisoniers and Jewish racial – spared at selection – ones. At any rate who at that time had to do with a Nazi Camp – whether Concentration or Extermination – was aware of the need to avoid to see and hear things going on there.

      Comment by Wolf Murmelstein — June 9, 2015 @ 12:26 am

      • Thousands of people coming and going and not one whispered to anyone that ” they’re gassing Jews in there ” . Not believable.
        Choosing a place in the middle of the biggest industrial centre east of Berlin as a secret location to murder millions. Not believable.
        This is probably the reason why you have to go to jail in most western countries if you fail to believe.

        Comment by peter — June 9, 2015 @ 1:35 am

        • You’re right, Peter. The Vrba-Wetzler part of the Auschwitz narrative is quite ridiculous. Thousands of inmates had escaped or had been released (after serving their penal sentence) before the Vrba-Wetzler episode. And Polish resistance had infiltrated all parts of the Auschwitz-Birkenau-Monowitz complex. Imprisoned Polish resistants were in contact with their “colleagues” outside the camp. They exchanged information, food and even medicine with them. Had there been an industrial slaughter of Jews in titanic homicidal gas chambers at Auschwitz-Birkenau, the world wouldn’t have needed Vrba and Wetzler to know what was going on there years before summer 1944.

          The Vrba-Wetzler episode better suited the old and now dropped “We knew nothing of the Nazi Top Secret extermination before entering Buchenwald, Dachau and Belsen” version than the new “Everybody knew but did nothing because they all hated Jews” version…

  7. Rudolph Vrba’s given name at birth was Rudolph Rosenberg. He was the cousin of British intelligence agent Vera Atkins (nee Rosenberg). At the Zundel trial in Toronto Verba/Rosenberg’s testimony was deconstructed and shown to be a tissue of lies by Ernst Zundel’s defense lawyer the late Douglas Christie. He reduced Vrba and Holocaust historian Raul Hillberg, the prosecution’s two star “lie witnesses,” to comic book to Der Sturmer type caricatures prevaricaring horn billed Hebrews. The story of Vrba’s humiliation in the witness box can be found in two books about the Zundel trials, The Holocust On Trial by Robert Lenski and The Great Holocaust Trial: The Landmark Battle for the Right to Doubt the West’s Most Sacred Relic by Michael Hoffman. I have David Garnett’s The Secret History of the PWE (The Political Wafare Executive 1939-1945) in front of me and I can find no entry for “Holocaust” in the index of this door jam sized miracle of obfuscation. Vera Atkins’ name isn’t in there either. I suspect the Nazi gassings story was put into circulation as “black propaganda” by the PWE and never decomisssioned because it soon became obvious to the machers orchestrating things behind the scenes at the Nuremburg IMT (Mickey Marcus, Murray C. Bernays and Herbert Marcuse) that fables like Vrba’s were going to be The Goose That Laid the Golden Egg for Zionists and all manner of reparations racketeers.
