Even when he’s telling us the truth about Lazar and Elie Weisel, Miklos Gruener is unable to refrain from embellishing and fabricating his holocaust story.
He claims that an SS officer stood up in a large hall in front of hundreds of Hungarian Jews and announced to them that Auschwitz-Birkenau was a “death camp” where they were required to work – and that they’ve already put to death all the babies who arrived with them on the train.
Are we seriously expected to believe that story? The Germans needed productive workers for their war factories. Now is it likely that they are going to get efficient, and committed labour out of people who have just been told that their infant children have just been murdered?!! And would you be the brave SS guard to announce this loudly and clearly for everyone to hear? Would you not be a little bit teezy-weezy that the assembled throng might rush forward and beat you to death with their bear hands?
In addition, he claims that he was on the train for 5 or 6 days before arriving at Birkenau, and everyone in his box car was in a terrible state without food or water. Well, we’ve no way of verifying that, but even in wartime conditions I would be surprised if it would take longer than 48 hours to get from anywhere inside Hungary to Auschwitz.
The photos in the Auschwitz Album give us a good idea of the real condition that the Hungarian Jews were in when they arrived at Birkenau. They all look in pretty good shape, healthy, fit, and well-clothed. They seem to be very calm and relaxed – even if they are naturally bewildered and confused about what is going to happen next.
For the sake of argument,let’s say history accurately recorded the events in nazi germany. Why would any Jew survivor want to embellish their story? What? The fact that x number of Jews got run through the gas huts,ain’t f–ked up enough? It don’t matter what kind of shit they may or may not have went through,dead is dead. Your ass Is taking a dirt nap
In those photos, nobody is actually lining up to visit old Elie’s alleged childhood home are they? I would have thought there would be lines of holocaust pilgrims, tourists, visitors and true believers flocking to view this sacred holy shrine. Where are the gangs of Israeli students, bedecked in blue and white scarves and flags? Where are the strict Hassidic and Talmudic adherents? Where are all the Zionist zealots from Brooklyn in New York; Skokie in Chicago: and Golders Green in London?
In Amsterdam, enthusiastic crowds gather each day to view Anne Frank’s former home. Is it because she was a genuine person (even if the authorship of her diary maybe a bit “iffy”), whereas the Weasel was a diabolical fraud, and everyone is trying to distance themselves from him as quickly as possible.
It was interesting that the Jewish community soon packed him off to the grave pretty smartly, and without any public ceremony.
Anne Frank’s House is actually very popular with tourists and sightseers, Tim. It stands right in the center of Amsterdam, and thus it is one of the main visitor sites in the entire city. You have to book online for tickets, otherwise you have to wait until late afternoon or evening to get in. Even then – during the summer season – you might have to wait for up to two hours !
They’re going to TEAR DOWN the birthplace of Wiesel’s bete noir, Adolf Hitler. If so, tear THIS one down, too. For me. And Germans everywhere. Don’t want it getting to be shrine, now, do we? For Neo-Zionists?
No, that’s just Schlageter. He thinks he’s being funny (I think).
The reality is he’s a pathetic loser, hopelessly stuck in the past where the glorious Fuehrer reigns supreme.
He insists that the Holocaust didn’t happen, however, if given the opportunity he would happily nuke every Jew on earth. He doesn’t see the irony in that. He can’t seem to get it through his thick skull that what he WANTS to do, Hitler had the power TO DO.
I thought you said you were getting burned out talking about this fella. Hey. Have any interviews or articles about Uncle Adolphs school mates or Army buddies ever been written ( post ww2)? I think I’d be interesting to see what they have to say.
