Did the late Elie Wiesel have a concentration camp tattoo or not?

I have blogged until I am blue in the face about the late Elie Wiesel, and his lack of a Holocaust camp tattoo.

What does it matter? Why should we be concerned about whether Elie Wiesel had a tattoo or not?

If Elie had a tattoo, that means that he might have been a prisoner in a Nazi concentration camp. Or maybe NOT! He could have had a fake concentration camp tattoo put on his arm much later.

If he did not have a tattoo, that probably means he was hiding out in his home town, and was never captured, nor sent to a camp.


Descendants of Auschwitz staff members are now being harassed

The first three laws of the Jewish religion are 1. Revenge 2. Revenge and 3. Revenge.  The Jews can never get enough Revenge.

In this recent news article, you can read about how the descendants of Auschwitz staff members are now being harassed by today’s Jews:

Begin quote from the news article:

The Auschwitz Museum is asking Germans and Austrians to donate Nazi documents about the death camp and it’s making a big concession in return.

It’s promising to grant the donors anonymity — and a guarantee their identities won’t be shared. The names of Auschwitz staff are already online, but descendants might not want to publicize that aspect of their family history.

“Without a comprehensive analysis and understanding of the motivation and mentality of the perpetrators, our efforts to wisely counsel future generations will only remain intuitive,” said Museum Director Dr. Piotr M. A. Cywiński in an appeal published on the museum’s website.

After the war, only a few sets of photos and private letters from SS staff members were found, alongside some single diaries.

To change that, the museum is asking for any documents, photos, personal letters or diaries that used to belong to SS officers or other people working at the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp.

“I am absolutely convinced that only a mutual effort can lead to a fuller understanding of the mechanisms of hatred,” Director Cywiński said. “Analyses from the perspective of the victims … cannot fully serve the purpose.”

The museum is reaching out to newspapers in Germany and Austria to publicize the cause.
