Frank Misa Grunwald as a young child

Around a year ago, I blogged about Frank Misa Grunwald, who is a regular on the lecture circuit, telling young students about his story of surviving several death camps and the gas chamber.

Frank Grunwald is still out on the lecture circuit educating young students about the Holocaust.  You can read about him in the news here.

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote:

A presentation, “Escaping the Auschwitz Gas Chamber,” with special guest survivor Frank Misa Grunwald, will take place at CANDLES at 6:30 p.m. Thursday.

Frank Grunwald was 6-years-old when German troops invaded Czechoslovakia in March 1939. In the summer of 1942, he and his family were deported to the Terezin ghetto and in December 1943 to Auschwitz. At the last minute, he was pulled from the line leading to the gas chamber and placed with older children to work sorting the clothes of new arrivals. He survived a death march and four other concentration camps before U.S. soldiers liberated him in May 1945.


Frank’s story was documented in the award-winning 2012 film. Misa’s Fugue.

End quote


  1. Why would the Nazis have supposedly disguised their homicidal gas chambers as fake shower rooms, used code words an euphemisms in their own internal documents, tasked special units with the obliteration of any trace of their [alleged] crimes, et cetera, if even10-year-old boys knew that they were in fact walking to homicidal gas chambers? The ‘Holocaust’ is a mere compilation of dumb horror stories for gullible kids…

  2. Whatever didn’t happened if this Grunwald character was even at Auschwitz, he has come to believe in his Jew-warped mind as having happened. The “survivors” stories are formulaic. They must include at least a trip to Auschwitz. It’s as canonical to holocaustianity as First Communion is to Catholicism and equivalent to the haj for a devout Muslim ). There is usually a part of the story about the “selection” on the train platform of those to be used for work and those going “to the gas chamber” on the train platform and it is always Doctor Mengele who made the selection. Millions of “victims” passed through Auschwitz and Mengele is the person whom every survivor who
    There were no homicidal gas chambers Auschwitz, or Majdanek or Chelmno or Belzec or Sobibor or Treblinka. much less than Theresienstadt. But then his story really sucks if it doesn’t include Auschwitz and his being miraculously fortuitous plucked out of the line leading to the gas chambers. Who would waste time to attend a lecture from a “holocaust survivor who hadn’t been to Auschwitz or “selected by Mengele” or been miraculously saved from the gas chamber. That’d be like going a fireworks display and discovering it’s a Cub Scout troop waving sparklers.

    • There was an error in transmitting my comment. With regard to Mengele, it seems an important part of the formulaic survivor “holomanurmoirs”* that the ubiquitous and nefarious Mengele was ever the only “camp greeter”. It occurs to me that if Mengele met all these train loads of millions ? of unfortunates and made all these “selections” he would not have had time to do all those horrifying experiments. N’est pas?
      *holomanurmoirs is a portmanteau neologism of my creation- it’s a combination of holocaust, manure, and memoirs and are descriptive of holocaust survivor memoirs that smell of taurum stercore.

      • Dr. Mengele is remembered by all the Jews, who were sent to Auschwitz, because he was handsome and charming. He whistled while he worked and waved a baton. He was nice to the children, upon whom he experimented. He was doing experiments to find out how genes are passed on; he wanted to wipe out hereditary diseases which were prevalent among Jews because they were in the habit of marrying close relatives in order to keep the money in the family.

  3. And just think how many people believe this bullshit!
    The so-called Holocaust survivors survived that’s the point so I guess it wasn’t so bad fot them. They seem to still have the hands and legs and eyes and all their body parts so I really would like to know what happened to them that was so horrible.
    Oh, now I know they had to work!

      You shouldn’t comment in a way that seems to downplay the Nazi regime of deportation, internment (often under very cruel conditions), and forced/slave labor.

      • “You shouldn’t comment in a way that seems to downplay the Nazi regime of deportation, internment (often under very cruel conditions), and forced/slave labor.”

        Say that to Zio-King Chaim Weizmann (who publicly declared war on Germany on behalf of all Jews in 1939) and Zio-moguls Stephen Wise & Samuel Untermyer (who started and vigorously promoted a worldwide boycott on German exports as early as March 1933). The Japs of America had been deported and interned by Zio-puppet FDR long before the Emperor of Japan or any other Japanese official had time to say the same thing to any of them or to lead any economic war against America.

  4. You should invent a new tag — perhaps ‘Escaped a gas chamber’ — in order to better keep track of how many survivors claim to have either escaped directly from a gas chamber, or to have been, at the last moment, pulled out of a line going into a gas chamber.
