reporter who walked three times through the ashes of Auschwitz lauds Elie Wiesel

The following quote is from a news article which you can read in full here.

Begin quote

Three times I’ve walked through the ashes of Auschwitz, the most meaningful being that day with [Elie] Wiesel. I emerged looking not just at the big picture of persecution, but also looking at the small one. Asking questions like, how would I have handled it if someone stole my shoes? For inmates slavishly worked to the edge of extinction, shoes could be the margin between life and death.

End quote

I have been to Auschwitz I and Auschwitz II three times, but I have never walked through any ashes there. Where are the ashes?  Visitors to Auschwitz-Birkenau [Auschwitz II] are advised to stay on the road through the camp because there are pot holes hidden in the tall grass that covers the remains of the camp.

Maybe Greg Dobbs, the man who wrote the article, was writing metaphorically. Allegedly, there was no grass when Birkenau was in use because the prisoners allegedly ate the grass.

This quote is also from the article:

Begin quote

But at the same time, one might have thought that Wiesel also, somehow, could have been happy, 40 years later, in that singularly sad spot. Happy that the degenerate dregs of Auschwitz no longer were a death camp but a muscular monument to his people’s survival. Happy that by becoming the archivist of arguably the most malicious mass murders in the history of mankind, he was rich, he was revered. And that because of what he wrote, the rest of us might never forget.

But he didn’t look happy. He didn’t talk happy. He didn’t act happy. He was sad.

Sad that necessity had forced him to put pen to paper, sad that for many years after the war, relatively few among its survivors dared to speak of the Holocaust, let alone write about it for the sake of time immemorial.

End quote

Why did other Holocaust survivors not dare to speak of the Holocaust? I think that it was because they didn’t want to lie about events that never happened.

  1. There is something deeply suspicious about these so-called “human ashes” scattered around the Auschwitz complex. There was no physical search, archaeological digs, or forensic examinations carried out on any human remains in the post-war years: and more tellingly – no official Soviet, Polish or International report was ever produced that claims that bodies or human ashes were discovered there.

    All we have to go on is the verbal assertions of former inmates, and the dubious testimonies of some of the SS personnel. But what kind of credibility can anyone award to ex-prisoners, who would have a very large axe to grind against their former jailors?. And what kind of threats, inducements and violence was used against the SS guards to get them to issue their unverified statements?.

    The absence of a truly independent and international body of experts to carry out a thorough search for human remains at Auschwitz is a wide, gaping hole in the holocaust legend. And we would be very foolish indeed to rely solely on the uncorroborated ( and quite likely fabricated) testimonies and statements collected by Nazi Germany’s mortal enemies – the Soviets and the Poles.

    • I thought I heard someone say,all those ashes were dumped in a river.

      • Yes, that’s what I’ve heard too, but there is no credible evidence to support that idea. Once again, its just verbal assertions from dubious witnesses whose testimony simply cannot be relied upon.

        There are other accounts of the ashes being used as fertiliser and dug into the fields of the Birkenau farmland. Some witnesses have even claimed that the human ash fertiliser was sold on the open market to – well…whoever!

        Some stories talk about ashes being scattered in the nearby woods, while others claim that they lie buried inside the Birkenau camp itself. They insist that hollows, or depressions in the ground are “ash pits, or that that the human remains were dumped in shallow ponds that lie adjacent to some of the crematoriums.

        The Auschwitz authorities have erected groups of marker stones scattered around the camp, that say something like;- “Here lie the human remains of those who were murdered here”. But in reality there is no proof that such remains lie buried in the areas that they claim.

      • In the above web page, FG wrote the following;- ” After a few weeks in quarantine at Auschwitz, Elie Wiesel says that he and his father were sent to Auschwitz III, aka Monowitz, to work in a factory “.

        The weasel never supplied any details of the actual work that he and his father were alleged to have undertaken at Monowitz. All we are left with is a nice vague assertion of “factory work” – and of course, he knew very well from official accounts that Monowitz was an area of factories and industrial plants, so he couldn’t go wrong with his explanation. Thus no one could ever have challenged him on this issue.

        But I would suggest that anyone who had genuinely worked there would willingly tell the world whereabouts in Monowitz he was stationed, and what he was employed doing there – a drill operator?, lathe turner?, welder?, fitter?, electrical or mechanical engineer?, maintenance operator?, or maybe just a general labourer or handyman.

        He soon found out, however, that the famous Primo Levy was based at Monowitz, so the weasel craftily used the Italian Jew’s name and prestige to enhance his own credentials as a great writer and holocaust survivor. He even claimed that he met Levy while in Monowitz – thus giving the world the impression that two intellectual giants were having a “meeting of minds” while enduring their horrific experiences at Auschwitz.

          When Primo Levi was sent to Monowitz, it was not known that he was a Jew. Jews were not sent to Monowitz because they could not be trusted.

          • That’s interesting, FG – if Jews were not knowingly sent to Monowitz because of their untrustworthyness, then this suggests that Weisel was indeed lying about his time there.

            • You wrote: “if Jews were not knowingly sent to Monowitz because of their untrustworthyness, then this suggests that Weisel was indeed lying about his time there.”

              Jews were not given important jobs at Monowitz. They were given mundane jobs as unskilled workers.

          • The problem with the Jews was they were mostly Communist in nature and would sabotage things. In the Dora factory near Buckenwald, as I understand sabotage was the name of the game with all the groups working there, especially on the V2 rockets. I recommend highly Paul Rassiniers book Debunking the Genocide Myth. Chapter six p.100-102 is called Shipwreck for good reason as the topic is how things were half ass assembled and not working right when they left the factory.
            Of course anyone caught sabotaging the goods were shot. His book gets into the inner workings of the hierarchy structure of the camps and who ran what.
            You don’t get too many HoloHuxsters reading or commenting on Rassiniers book for good reason, he tells the truth of what went on in the camps from his prisoner working there prospective. You won’t the the Hollywood Jew version with his book.

              For any newbs who might be reading this, Rassinier was the father of Holocaust denial. I mentioned him on this blog post:

    • But what work was Weisel actually engaged in while it is alleged he was in Monowitz? He must have had some job there – because otherwise he would have remained in Birkenau. Only those who were deemed to be productive workers would be sent to Monowitz.

  3. So true about them not wanting to lie….but what about the millions of Non Jews…..Not a peep from them either.
    It’s hard to tell a story that doesn’t jibe with the facts so why tell it….but if you make money on telling a lie then that is ok.
    E-lie the Weasel made a bundle doing that. People seem to like lies. They are more exciting to read and watch.
    If these HoloHuxsters had to be cross examined in a court of law they would be in big trouble.
    That is why the HoloHoax never makes it into a court setting, except of course the Zundel case in 1988 that pretty much blew the lid off thew HoloHoax lies.

    Those pro-exterminationist (Raul Hilberg) being one of them, testifying at the first trial never came back for the second I wonder why….LOL
    The HoloHoax doesn’t fare too well under scrutiny and thats why they make laws to ban the topic in 19 countries and counting today.
    Of course the David Irving case was just plain handled wrong and thats why he lost…..If the right people were there to testify in behalf of him I’m sure the verdict would of been different but then again you are in the jews court and can’t expect justice to be served by these vindictive lying bastards.
    Pretty soon they will ban us from commenting on the internet……it’s all part of the plan.
    Did you notice that The Weasel man had a private memorial service?? Didn’t want to attract attention to those that might protest his false exploits that he said happened that didn’t happen. No doubt that would be embarrassing having to interview those that knew the Weasel man was a fraud….

  4. “How would I have handled it,if someone stole my shoes”. He don’t get it. When you locked down,your personal shit is about all you have,that the screws don’t control. Your ass is property of the state. Your personal shit still gives you a sense of individuality and control. I saw a guy damn near beat his cell mate senseless over a cigarette that he stole from him. Some how I don’t see the Jews turning on each other over a pair of stolen shoes. If shit happened the way history said it did,the Jews are gonna stick together for survival. Locked down in the pen,you just worried about yourself. Yeah there were cliques in there,but at the end of the day they’d each have to defend themselves if an outsider moved on them. Somehow I don’t see that happening in the nazi prisons
