Why have so many Holocaust survivors lived to an advanced age?

Holocaust survivors return to visit Auschwitz to mark this year’s 70 years of liberation.

Note that the Holocaust survivors, shown in the photo above, appear to be in fairly good condition, even after their ordeal in a Nazi “extermination camp.”

The photo above was taken in the Auschwitz main camp; these survivors had been prisoners in the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp, not the main camp.

I think that the secret to their survival is the turnips that they ate while they were prisoners at Birkenau. I have lived to the age of 83 and one of my favorite foods is turnips. I also eat a lot of potatoes, which is another food that the prisoners ate. My favorite food, which I eat almost every day, is potato salad. I eat very little meat, just as the prisoners ate almost no meat.

The following quote is from the news article, cited above:

Begin quote

More than 100 Auschwitz survivors from at least 19 countries arrived in Poland on Monday as part of the World Jewish Congress’ delegation to participate in the upcoming ceremony and events. From the United States, 21 American survivors of Auschwitz will participate in the January 27 observance of the 70th anniversary of the camp’s liberation for the International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

Given the age and conditions of the survivors and the heavy emotional experience, the WJC also arranged a special medical team of 12 doctors, psychologists and nurses who will accompany the survivors throughout the visit.

“I deeply admire the courage of these survivors,” said Ron Lauder, WJC President, who joined the survivors today at Auschwitz. “For some of them, this was the first time they returned to the place of their nightmares. Each survivor is a living testament to the triumph of good over evil, of life over death, and they are my heroes.”

Lauder has been involved in the restoration and preservation of Auschwitz-Birkenau for more than 20 years and has helped to raise $40 million from 19 countries to ensure that the camp forever be preserved for future generations.

These survivors were not prisoners in the main camp, where the “Arbeit macht Frei” sign is over the gate, as shown in the photo above.  They were prisoners at the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp, which is now in ruins.
The following quote is also from the news article:
Begin quote

During the Holocaust, Auschwitz was the largest site of extermination of Jews in Europe since 1942. The Nazi Germans killed at least 1.1 million people there, most of whom were Jewish but also Poles, Roma and Soviet prisoners of war and prisoners of other ethnicities.

On January 27, 1945, the death camp was liberated by Soviet troops.

End quote

Note that the news article mentions the number of 1.1 million, which is the current number of people, claimed to have been killed at Auschwitz-Birkenau, down from the original claim of 4 million, although the 6 million number never changes.  “Into the valley of death rode the six million.”

  1. “Why have so many Holocaust survivors lived to an advanced age?”

    Because the Holohoax is full of anti-Occident.😉

  2. You ask;- “Why have so many holocaust survivors lived to an advanced age”

    Well, it would appear that to qualify as a Jewish “holocaust survivor” you must have lived in Nazi Germany either during the war itself, or before WW2 broke out in 1939. In addition, any Jewish person living in Nazi-occupied Europe, or North Africa, during the conflict is also eligible for this status.

    This means, that regardless of whether or not you were deported to a ghetto, a labour or a concentration camp, you automatically become a “holocaust survivor”, and of course are then entitled to a share of the generous amounts of life-long compensation bounty, in which to purchase good quality food and exquisite delicacies to fill your belly and maintain a healthy body.

    So even if a Jew emigrated from German-occupied Europe before WW2 broke out – or even during the first two years of the conflict – then you are a “holocaust survivor”. But equally, if you were Jewish and not deported, but remained at home in your own country throughout WW2, then you, too, are classified as a “survivor”.

    The general public have been subjected to such a massive, intensive, holocaust campaign over the decades, that everyone thinks that all Jewish people living in Europe in WW2 were subjected to a terrible nightmare of being crammed into “cattle trucks”, “extermination camps”, and “death marches” – when the reality is nowhere near as horrendous as all this.

    • First of all there weren’t that many Jews that were there most of them left by 1939 they were probably around a couple hundred thousand in Germany alone so that wasn’t a big issue second, l they exaggerate tremendously about the suffering they experienced and of course the biggest thing that the experience that upset them was getting their haircuts and the fact that they had to work that was something against their principles of life. So the Jews didn’t experience anything that was bad do it too young to experience some of these things anyway if they are 75 years old today. If they were 90 or 100 and they’re old enough but most of them in those pictures aren’t that old. Sgain this is just their typical scam trying to get people to feel sorry for them like they suffered more than everybody else I am doing these interviews with German survivors the German people suffered even more than the Jews but no one wants to talk about that.

      • Good for you, Jim Rizoli – you’re trying to re-dress the balance with your series of interviews. The holocausters have had a free ride for far too long in this world. It is way past time that others who suffered in WW2 – especially German civilians – were allowed their rightful place in the history of this traumatic period.

        The plight of the Germans at the end of the war, and long afterwards, has been sadly neglected by official historians, whereas the Jews have had oceans of everlasting sympathy and compensation money showered upon them.

        And then it turns out that up to two thirds of what these holocausters have been telling us over the years is either untrue, or heavily exaggerated. So therefore, the world must not expend another dime, or waste any more tears, upon these so-called “holocaust survivors”.

        Let us all instead, have a jolly good old belly-laugh at them!

        • Can we still have a pig roast for them?” I want my, babyback,babyback,babyback,babyback ribs. Chillis,babyback ribs?” To make the Jews feel at home,we’ll also serve,gefilte fish

  3. Calorie restriction is well known to have specific and significant effects: Calorie restriction without malnutrition has been shown to work in a variety of species, among them yeast, fish, rodents and dogs to decelerate the biological aging process, resulting in longer maintenance of youthful health and an increase in both median and maximum lifespan — obviously experiments to determine if the same effects appear in humans are problematic — despite what is sometimes claimed in comments here, I don’t think a stay in a camp was a sort of involuntary working Pauschalurlaub for Jews — they suffered and died — part of that suffering was not getting enough to eat.

    For at least half of them, this was probably their first visit ever to a real concentration camp.

    Yes, this could well be true for some “survivors”.

  4. When your state religion becomes the ” Holocaust” and your state motto, ” degeneracy, multiculturalism and national suicide ” . then all sorts of things result which were once unimaginable
    …..like Syrian suicide bombers .

  5. They look like contestants in a holocaust survivor beauty contest – but perversely the winner will be the ugliest one of the bunch.

    And just look at the sinister Ronald S. Lauder towering over the contestants in the background. That man always gives me the shivers. But I suppose he is the judge of the contest and will award the winner a “facial make-over” program. Second prize will be a case of wrinkle remover cream, and the runner-up will receive a can of Zyklon B for fumigating all the bedding at home.

    • Facial makeover. Max Factor,Estée Lauder and Trish McEvoy will have to go to the day labor place and hire some for a week. The production will have to be double for an xtra heavy duty make over. Then that Jew can go on the Oprah show,so whatever BS Ellie didn’t get to Oprah,this Jew can. They can all celebrate by having a pig roast. The Jew would probably die being that close to pork.

  6. This story reminds me of an Air Force buddy of my dads. They’d have lunch every Wednesday and Friday,like clockwork. Every now and again pop would take me,if it was when school was out for summer break. What this man ordered to eat,was predictable. A salad and glass of ice water. Every now and again,he,his wife and 2 boys would come over to eat. I remember one time,moma made meatloaf . All that man ate was a sliver of meatloaf. One slice buttered bread and one piece of broccoli with cheese sauce on it. He struggled to get through that. One time me and pop were having lunch with him. I asked him how he got by on eating so little. Turns out he ate like that,because of the treatment he got at the niponese POW prison. When the war ended and he was released,I forget how long he had to stay in the hospital for being rehabilitated. The Dr’s did the best they could. He said his Dr. basically told him,”you’ll never be able to eat full meals again. He also had other long term health issues,because of the treatment he got as a POW. He showed me a pic of what he looked like before he got locked down by the nips. This man was big. He looked like he could toss 50lbs bales of hay,all day long. He was in best shape he could be in when I met him,but the post ww2 look as opposed to his pre ww2 look,was night and day. That’s the first thing that goes through mind when I see the pic of all the supposed Jew survivors. They look nothing like this man. Some of them look like they could miss a few meals. This wasn’t an isolated incident with this man. He said a lot of his fellow POWs are in the same shape if they were still alive. Yeah it turns out the treatment the Nips gave them,cut down on long full life,for some of them. Bottom line though,they were all f–ked up. Looking at all the tubby ass Jews with their shit eatin smile,I don’t think a lot of them knew rough. I’m not saying,some of them didn’t get dealt a shitty ass hand,but the Jews I’m looking at in the picture,didn’t get f–ked over,like our boys in the Pacific theater did. Truth be known,I imagine our boys would’ve rather been at one of the nazi prisons. Least they wouldn’t of had to worry about getting a daily beating,because they surrendered and the Niponese looked down on people like that.

    • The Germans definitely treated the American prisoners better than the Japanese.

      • yeah,but the Niponese were still better to our boys. That’s what history would have a person believe. If that’s the case,how come we never hear of Our boys that were guest of the Germans getting f–ked over by them. I don’t see where the Germans treated our boys like the Nips did when they put them on the hell ships. Did the Germans give our boys a forced march,like the Japs did with the “Bataan Death March”,killing our boys along the way,if they dropped from exhaustion? This biggest one of all. Did the German soldier look at our boys as not worthy of living,simply because they surrendered? Yeah. The Germans were real assholes towards our boys

  7. For at least half of them, this was probably their first visit ever to a real concentration camp. The required age of a Holocaust survivor keeps going up, but the number of them just WON’T go down. Isn’t that something? They certainly ARE a treasure . . . to someone or other.

  8. Nice to see these “Survivors” from Hotel Auschwitz all are alive and well…..Not bad considering they were in a “Execution” camp but sure seem to survive and lived to tell their Horror Disneyland stories of, having their hair cut, having to work, being protected in the camp from allied bombings. Having enough food to sustain them while most of the Germans starved around them who lived outside the camp.
    Ya….it was a horrible place to live but we managed to survive those nasty gas chambers, and didn’t end up in an ash pit.
    Excuse me! You survived, why are you even complaining and not only that why are you lying about your stay on Hotel Auschwitz?
    Was the room service that bad.
