Jewish survivor of Mauthausen camp reveals that he wore a bracelet with his prison number

Holocaust survivors usually show their prison number tattooed on their arm, but not this survivor.

You can read about the Holocaust survivor Ed Mosberg who was not tattooed, but instead wore a bracelet on his arm which was engraved with his prison number: http://www.newstatesman.com/culture/2017/06/every-day-holocaust-day-me-concentration-camp-survivor-ed-mosberg-reliving-trauma

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

A 92-year-old man is sitting at a café terrace on London’s Southbank, munching resolutely on sugar lumps. Bright morning sunshine bounces off the dome of St Paul’s Cathedral, whose bells you can hear across the river where he sits.

As he sips black coffee, his checked blazer sleeve rides up to reveal a bracelet bearing the number 85454. It is the original prison number plate, about the size of a razor blade, he was forced to wear on a wire around his wrist by the Nazis at Mauthausen concentration camp.

“That was my name,” he says, when he catches me looking. He had it fixed to a gold chain, so that whenever someone asks him what it is, he can tell his story.

End quote

I have a whole section on my website about the Mauthausen camp: http://www.scrapbookpages.com/Mauthausen/KZMauthausen/index.html

  1. Look at what Ed the liar says here….I guess no one will check the facts so he can say what he wants.
    All complete nonsense.

  2. Just another HoloHuxster who put together his own HoloHoax Horror story.
    I think his eating all those sugar lumps has caused him to live in perpetual diabetic shock and now he’s delirious.

      He was not able to eat meals while he was in a camp because the prisoners had to show their tattoo in order to get their food. Their tattoo number was written down so that they could not go through the food line twice. The fact that he had no tattoo shows that he is lying.

        Only in Auschwitz-Birkenau. Not in Plaszow, Mauthausen and Litz, i.e. not where Ed Mosberg was held during the war.
