Bernard Marks is back in the news; you can read about it at http://metro.co.uk/2017/03/29/history-is-not-on-your-side-auschwitz-survivor-confronts-trumps-immigration-tsar-6541709/

I previously blogged about Bernard Marks, the Holocaust survivor who has no tattoo, on this blog post: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2014/03/08/how-holocaust-survivor-bernard-marks-survived-auschwitz-without-a-tattoo/

Jared Kushner, the son-in-law of Donald Trump, should have immediately confronted this guy, asking him “Where’s your tattoo?” Kushner has relatives who lived in a hole in the ground, during the Holocaust, so they were survivors who had no tattoo, but this is very rare.

Sometimes the prisoners at Auschwitz would try to go through the food line twice. To stop this, the Nazis required each prisoner to show his tattoo before getting any food.  How did Bernard Marks get any food while he was a prisoner at Auschwitz?
