The Nazis counted Jews and murdered every tenth person, says Holocaust survivor

My photo above shows the bunk beds in one of the barracks buildings at Auschwitz-Birkenau. The flowers are on the stove which runs the length of the building.

The title of my blog post today is a quote from a news article which you can read in full at http://www.mycentraljersey.com/story/news/local/how-we-live/2016/05/22/holocaust-survivor/84233700/

I know what you are thinking, dear reader: Why would those mean ole Nazis allow every tenth Jew to live during the Holocaust? Obviously, it was to insure that there would be survivors, who would live to be at least 90. The survivors would write great books and give lectures, telling their stories to the children of future generations of goyim. This was intended to be a warning to future generations: Never kill a Jew because, if you do, you will never hear the end of it.

This survivor’s name was Margit Feldman, which reminded me of a character, named Feldman, in the Seinfeld TV series, which I still watch every night. The Seinfeld show has helped me to understand Jews and why the act as they do — lying, stealing and cheating.

The news article begins with this quote:

Feldman’s life after liberation from Auschwitz has now been chronicled in a documentary film titled ‘Not A23029’

She was 17 years old when she arrived in America in 1946 with hopes and dreams for a life filled with possibilities. But for Margit Buchhalter Feldman who had endured life in a German concentration camp and witnessed the demise of her parents in Auschwitz, the memories would form an invisible shroud around her as she attempted to assimilate into the exuberance of life in post war America.

Feldman’s life after liberation has now been chronicled in a documentary film titled: ‘Not A23029’ – produced by Peppy Margolis, director of community programs at Raritan Valley Community College (RVCC) Institute for Holocaust and Genocide Studies established in 1981. Feldman is a founding member.

End quote

The title of the film “Not A23029” means that Margit Buchhalter Feldman was not the number tattooed on her arm. No, she was a person who retained her humanity in spite of the fact that the Nazis tried to reduce her to a number in the Auschwitz death camp.

Here is another quote from the news article:

A23029 is the number stamped into Feldman’s left arm. According to Margolis, one of the key messages of the film is that Feldman, who settled and has lived in Central Jersey for decades, would not be defined by that Holocaust number but by the courage to share her experiences and establish a new life.

Feldman, born on the same day and year as author Anne Frank, said because she survived, she has a responsibility to speak for those who could not speak for themselves. Frank and Feldman were both forced into the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in Nazi Germany [after they had survived Auschwitz]. However, Frank, author of “Diary of a Young Girl,” did not survive [Bergen-Belsen].

Margolis developed the 26-minute documentary with filmmaker Harry Hillard, adjunct professor of film at RVCC and proprietor of Warehouse Photography and H2H Films in Somerville. The final version of the film will be narrated by Michael Berenbaum, an internationally recognized Holocaust scholar.

  1. Why didn’t she just say they were going ,”enie menie miny mo. Catch a tiger by the toe”. This is really getting ridiculous. I’m trying to keep an open mind,but when they come up with BS like this,I gettin hard to. Why are we just now hearing this? What next? They made them draw straws? People with an odd age get waxed on weekends only,while folks with an even age number get bumped 9 to 5 Monday through Friday .

    I’d rather say that claiming 6 million Jews had been killed during the war was intended to be a crystal-clear demonstration that the alleged tragedy of Jewish national homelessness had to be settled once and for all without any further delay and that as a result the British government just couldn’t apply its so-called inhumane policy of depriving Jews of a country of their own forever the way it was doing it with the British ‘MacDonald White Paper’ of May 1939. Subsequent Holo-ramblings were/are only intended to keep the flame burning and so justify additional Zionist wars, land grabbings and ethnic cleansings, especially among the US population. Pure political marketing…

  3. I dunno about Margit Feldman – but I do remember another comedian, named Marty Feldman. He appeared in the 1974 movie ‘ Young Frankenstein ‘ where he played the part of Igor (pronounced “EYE-gore” – as a comic response to Doctor Frankenstein’s claim that his own named was pronounced “FRONK-EN-SHTEEN”

    Igor’s story is something like a holocaust survivor’s account. He was also a poor slave forced to work for his master – the evil Dr. Frankenstein (Mengele?), and was ordered to break into the “brain depository bank” in the middle of the night to steal a brain for his master’s human creation. Unfortunately, he smashed the glass jar holding the brain that he was supposed to get hold of, and brought back an abnormal brain instead.

    I just wonder if something similar happened at Auschwitz – that Dr. Mengele was implanting replacement abnormal brains into his luck-less victims, and that’s why today we have so many mental defectives among the holocaust survivors.

    • You wrote: “today we have so many mental defectives among the holocaust survivors.”

      I don’t think that the Holocaust survivors are “mental defectives.” I think that they are just liars.

    • Hey I remember that one. He told Gene Wilder the name on the outside of the jar said,”Abby Normal”. The Dr. Kept telling him he could do something about the hump on his back. Igor would always say,”what hump”. I’ll say one thing. Mel Brooks is one hilarious Jew .

  4. So what exactly was the bad thing that happened to this woman in the camps……she had to Work! Wow! That was really bad I’m sure that will be another Horror Disneyland tale to go on for another 100 years.
