British teenagers arrested for stealing artefacts from Auschwitz-Birkenau

Update June 27, 2015:

The photo below accompanies a news article about the recent theft of artifacts from Auschwitz.

Is Auschwitz-Birkeanu located on a hillside?  No, the place where the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp was located is flat as a pancake. Only the camera was tilted. This photo should have been straightened in Photo Shop.

Update June 25, 2015:

This quote is from the Guardian, a British newspaper:

“Two British schoolboys arrested at Auschwitz have each received a year’s probation, suspended for three years, and a 1,000 zloty (£170) fine after admitting stealing artefacts from the former Nazi death camp.”

Included in the news article, cited above, is a photo of the precious items that were stolen.

These items were stolen from the site of the Canada warehouse at Auschwitz

Continue reading my original post:

This morning, I was shocked to read in a news story that two British teenagers had spent a night in jail after being arrested for stealing precious artefacts from the Auschwitz-Birkenau memorial site.

This quote is from the news story:

Two British schoolboys were spared jail yesterday after stealing artefacts that belonged to prisoners at the Auschwitz concentration camp.

Marcus Dell and Ben Thompson, both 17, were arrested during a school trip to southern Poland to learn about the horrors of the Holocaust.

The pair, who attend Cambridge’s exclusive The Perse School where fees are more than £15,000 a year, were spotted acting suspiciously on Monday afternoon.

My first impression was that these boys had somehow managed to take items from the glass cases in Block 5, one of the buildings in the Auschwitz museum.

Blocks 4, 5, 6, and 7 at the former Auschwitz I concentration camp have been converted from barracks into museum rooms with glass display cases. All of these exhibit buildings are located on the second cross street, to your right after you enter through the “Arbeit Macht Frei” gate into the main Auschwitz camp.

In Block 5, there are displays devoted to the “Material Evidence of Crime.” One of the saddest sights at Auschwitz is the display of shoes in a huge glass case that takes up half a barracks room in Block 5. The shoes seem to be deteriorating and are mostly the same dark gray color, except for a few women’s or children’s shoes that are made of red dyed leather. The red shoes stand out like the red coat worn by the little girl in Schindler’s List, a black and white picture.

Did these British teenagers break the glass in the display cases at Auschwitz and steal several items, while thousands of witnesses watched?

There are currently 1.5 million visitors per year at Auschwitz, and it is almost impossible to get up to the glass cases to see the items on display. On my second trip to Auschwitz in 2005, I wanted to take a photo of the stairs that have been worn down by millions of footsteps, but it was impossible because of the steady stream of visitors, which did not stop for a second.

However, the news article explained that the boys had been digging in the location of the building, known as Canada, where all the clothing taken from the Jews had been stored.

I think that the folks at the Auschwitz museum should be glad that these young boys have found a few precious objects to add to the evidence of the murder of the Jews at Auschwitz. Every item that was ever touched by a Jew at Auschwitz is precious and should be preserved for time and all eternity.


  1. This is getting old. When are we gonna start on the allies? I’m guessing no one wants to talk about it,because their not jew deaths we’re talking about. Stalin. Low estimate of the blood on his hands. 20,000,000. It makes me sick everytime I see that douchebag sitting with Churchill and FDR(there again those weren’t exactly Angels). What gives with Dresden? 20,000 dead (murdered). How come nobody was hung for that one. The Ruskies are such Herod. Yeah right. Takes a big man to rape a woman. Hell,as f**ked up as the ready army was they were probably running around raping little 5 year olds. I love my country. I was born an American and I’ll die as such. Years back my country told me to go fight in a war,so I did. Yet if we’re gonna start pointing fingers,we need to point at the person we see in the mirror. You got the holocaust taking the spotlight. Whatever crimes the allies commited,will be swept under the rug. When someone discovers them,I ain’t gonna matter. Shit happened so long ago nobody will give a damn. Next time someone wants to knock off a group of people,let’s nail the French. Their assholes

    FG, how do you manage to speak with your tongue so firmly jammed in your cheek ?

    I had a quick look at the Mail website … crap site .. but the comments … wow talk about hate… just because these lads come from a private school they have been hung drawn and quartered… quite apart from the outcry about them bringing shame on the whole country

  3. Perhaps those boys just wanted to wash the Holo-shoes they had found and taken. Most Brits are very good at shining Jewish shoes after all… 😉

  4. I believe Germar Rudolf spent only five years in prison, not 14 years. After he was released he spent another year waiting in Mexico to get cleared to re-enter the USA and be re-united with his American wife and their children. These Holocaust skeptics are currently serving sentences in German jails. Send them a card. Wolfgang FRÖHLICH -JVA Stein – Steiner Landstr 4 – A-3504 Kreims-Stein / Wachau – NO – AUSTRIA

    • Thank you for catching this error. I was confused because he was at first sentenced to 14 MONTHS in prison. I will make a correction.

    • Those are people that got lockdown because they questioned the holocaust. Correct

  5. Also, knowing the habits of ultra-PC BBC, I wonder how “British” the “British teenagers” are.

    • Thanks. Fox was the last news channel I watched. I still watch it every now and again. As of late I’ve been a BBC fan ( hey. A corporation that gives us Dr. Who and Chef Ramsey can’t be half bad). I’ve notice they’ve gotten a bit questionable . You just provegd my suspicions I guess. Don’t look to CNN to mention this story . All they’re good for is carrying Barry’s water. They’ve done it since he was elected. CNBC ain’t gonna say shit unless Al Sharptons fat ass can get mileage out of it. The Jews weren’t black so he ain’t gonna worry about it.

    • You know how to unpack a BBC load of steaming pravda alright. Ben from Hitchin, key town there in Herfordshire that raises the probability density of tribal membership, and the use of language by his parents, apparently he was “scared”. Yeah like any of these public school creeps do anything other than act superior at all times.

      Anyway what do you expect when entering a clip joint?

  6. Teenagers doing silly things is not very exceptional. That such trivial misdemeanours should be the one of the top news items on most western MSM outlets is a reflection of worldwide Jewish power in 2015 .

  7. “In a time of universal deceit – telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” – George Orwell. That is why Rudolf went to prison

  8. Here’s my question. Are they going to start a new dig site there and take credit for it or are they gonna fess up and say,”well thanks to these fine young men……..”

    Comment by Tim — June 24, 2015 @ 12:12 pm

    • I personally think that they will start a new dig at the site of the former warehouse. “these fine young men” will not get credit, unless they are Jewish.

      Comment by furtherglory — June 25, 2015 @ 9:42 am

      • You’re the one who’s been exposed to this juncture in human history longer than most of us,so I’ll bet my money on you. Best case scenario,these young men will be tied to the whipping post.

  9. Well, I guess some of knew immediately that they did not chip away and steal any cyanide-laden material from the inside walls of the (alleged) gas chambers in Auschwitz-Birkenau. Because as has been shown more than once, there is no cyanide-laden material to be found there. Oddly enough.

    Comment by eah — June 24, 2015 @ 10:14 am

    • I am not sure, but I think that the ruins of the gas chambers at Birkenau are now roped off and out of bounds for visitors. In any case, no Holocaust True Believer would ever descend into the ruins of the gas chambers, which are holy places. Only a heretic like Germar Rudolf would ever commit a crime of that magnitude. He spent 5 years in prison for committing this crime.
