Holocaust survivor asked God “Why me?”

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust, Uncategorized — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 9:01 am

Today, I am commenting on a news article, which you can read in full at http://www.coloradoan.com/story/news/local/csu/2017/02/21/holocaust-survivor-lost-my-live/98211626/

The following quote is from the article:

Begin quote

Fanny Starr lay in a field in Auschwitz more than 70 years ago, looking at the night sky and asking God how it was she ended up there.

White flakes fluttered through the darkened sky. It was not snow, but the ashes of bodies burned in ovens.

Her mother, two of her siblings and her extended family members were gassed and burned when they arrived at Auschwitz, which is in present-day Poland, and her father later starved himself in Dachau, she says. Her pain has not receded in the intervening decades.

End quote

Why were Fanny’s family members gassed and burned? More importantly, why was Fanny spared? I believe that the Nazis spared her, so that she could tell her story to gullible students 70 years later, and collect money from the stupid goyim.

The Nazis didn’t want all their “gassing and burning” to go to waste, and for future generations to know nothing about the gassing and burning of Jews. If young Jews like Fanny had not been spared, no one would be talking about the Holocaust now and the Jews would not be getting billions in reparations.

This quote is also from the news article:

They [Fanny’s family] arrived at Auschwitz, where they were shaved and undressed. Starr and her younger sister, Rena Alter, survived. So did a cousin and an uncle. She wouldn’t find out until 1964 that one of her brothers also survived. The rest of her family members died — they were among 6 million Jews and more than 11 million total people who died during the Holocaust. [the official number of Jewish deaths in the Holocaust is now 1.1 million]

Starr and Alter were dressed in gray-striped outfits at Auschwitz, but they weren’t tattooed because there were too many people coming through the camp at the time. It was then that Starr said that she gave up.

End quote

What? Fanny has no tattoo? This is a clue that Fanny was never in a concentration camp! The prisoners had to show their tattoo in order to get their food. This was done to prevent prisoners from going through the food line twice.

There is a photo of Fanny, which you can purchase, included with the article. Will the Jews stop at nothing, to make money off the Holocaust! Will the stupid goyim ever stop giving money to the Jews? The answer is No! The German people will go on paying, as long as there is a German person left in this world! There are millions of Jews back in Germany now, keeping the Germans in line, and collecting money from them.

Don’t shade your eyes — plagerize

Filed under: Holocaust, Uncategorized — Tags: , — furtherglory @ 9:05 am

There is an on-going argument about the photos used by Caroline Yeager in a small book which she published many years ago. You can see a photo of the cover of the book on Ms. Yeager’s website at http://carolynyeager.net/auschwitz-underground-guided-tour

You can see the same photo on this page of my website: http://www.scrapbookpages.com/AuschwitzScrapbook/History/Articles/Crosses.html

This is the caption on my photo:

[My] 2005 photo of building where Carmelite nuns formerly lived

As you can see, the place where nuns formerly lived, outside the camp, has nothing to do with the subject of Yeager’s book.

When Yeager published her book, she was a complete newb, and she got much of her information from me. Now she specializes in attacking me. That’s the thanks I get for helping her.

Don’t shade your eyes — plagiarize

Filed under: Holocaust, Uncategorized — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 1:30 pm

Years ago, Carolyn Yeager wrote a book which she entitled

Auschwitz: The Underground Guided Tour

She wrote this book after a whirlwind guided tour of Auschwitz, during which she took no photos. Where did she get the photos that she used in her book? She got them from my scrapbookpages.com website.

Check out her book at http://carolynyeager.net/auschwitz-underground-guided-tour  and let me know if you spot any photos that are not on my website.

The two photos below were taken, by me, at Dachau, not Auschwitz.

There are many other photos in Carolyn’s book, which were copied from my website and used without my permission. Now she has the nerve to write comments that are critical of me. No more! She has been kicked to the curb.

The Jews who were forced to work in Nazi death factories

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust, Uncategorized — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 8:57 am
Survivors of Auschwitz-Birkenau with Russian liberator

Survivors of Auschwitz-Birkenau with Russian soldier who helped to liberate the camp

A photo that is very similar to the one above is shown in a news article about the Sonderkommando Jews who were forced to help the Nazis, in the killing of the Jews at Auschwitz-Birkenau.

The following quote is from the news article which you can read in full at http://www.haaretz.com/world-news/europe/.premium-1.773405

Begin quote from news article:

The members of the Sonderkommando in Auschwitz worked in the gas chambers. They were posted to the undressing rooms, where the victims had to disrobe; they were responsible for the removal of the bodies after the murder; for removing valuables from the bodies; for burning the bodies; for dealing with the body parts that did not burn completely; and finally they carried the ashes to the river and dumped them in the water.

As Shaul Chazan, one of the Sonderkommando survivors, told me: At 9:30, a transport of 3,500 people would arrive, and four hours later, not a trace of them remained – as though they had never existed. [Chazan’s testimony appears in Greif’s “We Wept Without Tears”; Yale University Press, 2005.] The Sonderkommando carried out all those tasks, but it’s important for me to emphasize that they never took part in the work of murder itself. They did not murder anyone. Only the Germans threw the deadly gas into the chambers.

End quote from news article

I wrote about the Sonderkommando Jews on my scrapbookpages.com website BEFORE I became a Holocaust denier.

Begin quote from my scrapbookpages.com website:

One of the survivors of Auschwitz was Samuel Pisar, who was first sent, at the age of 13, to the Majdanek death camp, in August 1943, when the Bialystok ghetto in Poland was liquidated. A few months later, he was transferred to Auschwitz-Birkenau where he was put to work.

In an article in the Washington Post, published on January 23, 2005, Samuel Pisar wrote the following about his experience at Birkenau:

My labor commando was assigned to remove garbage from a ramp near the Crematoria. From there I observed the peak of human extermination and heard the blood-curdling cries of innocents as they were herded into the gas chambers. Once the doors were locked, they had only three minutes to live, yet they found enough strength to dig their fingernails into the walls and scratch in the words “Never Forget.”

One of the Auschwitz-Birkenau prisoners, who loaded the corpses of the murdered Jews into the Crematoria ovens after they were killed in the gas chambers with Zyklon-B, was Schlomo Venezia who described his work in an interview with Adam L. Freeman, a reporter with the Bloomberg News, on December 17, 2007.

According to Freeman’s article, posted on the web site http://www.bloomberg.com, Schlomo worked for eight months at Birkenau in 1944, “…12 hours a day, seven days a week, cadaver after cadaver until it became a mechanical task, like feeding a heating furnace with cords of wood.”

Schlomo Venezia wrote a memoir entitled “Sonderkommando Auschwitz,” which was originally published in French; a new Italian version was published in 2007.

The following quote about Schlomo’s story is from Adam L. Freeman’s article in the Bloomberg News on December 17, 2007:

Begin quote from news article:

He [Schlomo] recalls, for example, the day he met his father’s emaciated cousin in an undressing room at the gas chambers. Venezia offered him the only solace possible, he writes — some sardines and a lie that the Zyklon B would kill him quickly.

“It was just terrible to have to lie, but there was no way around it,” Venezia explains. “I tried in some way to make the horrible situation easier.”

The Sonderkommandos, as the prisoners working at the gas chambers were known, were privy to how the Nazis went about their butchery. Determined to keep their methods secret, the Nazis killed members of these units at regular intervals, making Venezia’s memoir rare.

He was 20 years old at the time; he will turn 84 on Dec. 29. His own mother was murdered at the camp while he worked at the ovens — one of more than 1 million Jews killed there.

As we talk over a table of ties in his one-room shop near the Trevi Fountain, Venezia remains almost motionless. His Hungarian-born wife, Marika, tends to shoppers entering through the glass door. At one point, she places a box of coffee-filled chocolates between us.

The descendant of an old Jewish family from Spain and Italy, Venezia was born in the northern Greek city of Thessaloniki, where he grew up fatherless and poor, speaking Greek, Italian and Ladino, a Spanish-Jewish dialect.

Poverty sharpened his wits, he says. Working the black market in Nazi-occupied Greece, Venezia learned some German, which may have saved his life. In the camp, he escaped beatings by understanding when guards shouted out the number tattooed on his arm: 182727.

Cutting the hair off cadavers, pulling their gold teeth and dragging them to the furnaces became mechanical, Venezia says, because it was the only way to stay sane. The routine broke down only once, he recalls, when the prisoners were confronted with the lifeless body of a woman possessing “the absolute beauty of an ancient statue.”

She looked like “a woman in a painting,” Venezia says, pausing for a moment in reflection. “Like Mona Lisa.” Yet there was nothing to do but cremate her.

Another day, his unit found a live baby trying to suck its dead mother’s breast among a heap of corpses in a gas chamber. The prisoners watched without protest as a Nazi guard unloaded his pistol into the infant.

“There were so many terrible things that happened,” he says. “Every day it was something else.”

Jews who wrote songs at Theresienstadt were gassed at Auschswitz

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust, Music — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 8:40 am

Yes, it’s true, dear readers. Jews were allowed to compose music at Theresienstadt, but were then taken to Auschwitz and killed in the gas chamber.

Obviously, the Nazis wanted to steal music from the Jews before killing them. As everyone knows, the Germans can’t carry a tune in a basket!

You can read about this terrible crime in this news article: http://www.poconorecord.com/entertainmentlife/20170204/work-by-jewish-holocaust-victims-lives-on-in-ute-lempers-songs-for-eternity

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

A lot of work [by Jewish composers] actually was written at Theresienstadt, and there are a bunch of songs that are out of this history of this specific camp, but all of those were works written by artists who, in ’44, were brought on the trains to Auschwitz, and all of them were gassed. There was a quite incredible repertoire [of music] out of this concentration camp.

End quote

You can’t get any more cruel than that: the Nazis allowed the Jews to compose music, while they were prisoners in a ghetto, and then they killed them in gas chambers. Oh, the humanity!

The following quote is also from the news article:

Begin quote

Not only does every song have a story, every composer has a story. There’s Ilse Weber, a poet, writer and composer in the Prague ghetto who was brought to Theresienstadt and then brought with her entire family to Auschwitz later on and was killed, but her husband survived, and he was able to hide scrolls of her music in the columns of the horse stables of Theresienstadt. After being liberated from Auschwitz, he made it back to Theresienstadt to look for those scrolls, and he found them and published them many years later.

End quote

My photo below shows the horse stable at Theresienstadt

On my scrapbookpages.com website, I have a large section about Theresienstadt: http://www.scrapbookpages.com/CzechRepublic/Theresienstadt/TheresienstadtGhetto/index.html

To learn all about Theresienstadt, start with this section on my website: http://www.scrapbookpages.com/CzechRepublic/Theresienstadt/TheresienstadtGhetto/History/index.html

The following quote is also from the news article:

Begin quote:

…. an amazing story about Ilse Weber that really was breathtaking and horrible to tell. She became a nurse at Theresienstadt in charge of the children. She brought them with her on the train to Auschwitz, and she knew for some reason when they arrived they would all be brought straight to the gas chambers.

She told the children once they entered the gas chambers to sing. Because she had always sung with the children. That was always her way of making them feel better. She told them to breathe in deep and sing loud once they would enter the shower rooms, because she knew it would initiate death faster through deep inhalation, so the struggle would not be so long. It’s just so horrible.

End quote

How fortunate that this woman knew all abut the gas chambers! Why didn’t those stupid Nazis keep the gas chambers a secret?

I visited Theresienstadt for the second time in the year 2000 and took photos which you can see here: http://www.scrapbookpages.com/CzechRepublic/Theresienstadt/TheresienstadtGhetto/GhettoTour/Tour05.html

Holocaust victims had to wear “ersatz trousers”

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust, Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 9:24 am
Holocaust survivor holds her late husband's trousers that he wore at Auschwitz

Holocaust survivor holds the trousers that her late husband wore at Auschwitz where he was a prisoner

The following quote is from a news article which you can read in full at http://www.telegraph.co.uk/men/thinking-man/antiques-roadshow-discovering-lost-objects-holocaust/

Begin quote

In a carrier bag stowed at the top of her wardrobe, Sybil Van der Velde keeps a pair of trousers. They are made of a thick ersatz cloth, striped blue and a white that has slowly yellowed over the decades.

The bottoms are frayed and legs flecked with stains. Still, unmistakably, they are the uniform of the dreaded Auschwitz concentration camp. Clothes synonymous with the worst of humanity, and for Sybil’s husband Joe, the only possessions he had left in the world for four interminable years living in the shadow of the gas chambers.  [ http://www.telegraph.co.uk/history/world-war-two/11370972/Holocaust-Memorial-Day-Telegraph-revealed-Nazi-gas-chambers-three-years-before-liberation-of-Auschwitz.html ]

End quote

Ersatz was a word that was frequently used during World War II, when many things, such as coffee, were rationed. Civilians in America had to drink “ersatz coffee” because real coffee was rationed.

But coffee beans were not rationed; my family bought coffee beans and ground them in a coffee grinder, which I still have in my house, just as this woman has her husband’s “ersatz trousers”.

I vaguely recall reading about this woman’s story before, and as I recall, I blogged about it at that time.

How does this woman know that her husband wore this exact pair of pants?

The background in the photo shows that she is currently living in luxury, but she is still complaining. I think that she somehow found a pair of pants that look like what the prisoners wore at Auschwitz, but are not authentic.

Is Holocaust education needed more than ever?

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust, Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 10:35 am

Why am I asking this question? I have just read this news article which asks the question: http://www.israellycool.com/2016/12/01/does-statement-by-ryerson-student-union-border-on-holocaust-denial/

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

Begin quote

Today, the Ryerson [University] Student Union released this statement that seems to imply that Holocaust denial is a legitimate disagreement – by claiming that motions like this one on the Holocaust “invoke many views.” It implies there is a legitimate view other than “the Holocaust was a tragedy that needs to be addressed,” a viewpoint that is positively vile and a sign these students need Holocaust education more than ever.

End quote

What a revolting development this is!

There are two sides to everything — except the Holocaust. Regarding the Holocaust, there is only one side to the story. If you believe anything except the Jewish side of the story, you will soon be on your way to jail, in 20 countries, not including America.

Note that the gas chamber in the main Auschwitz camp was next door to the oven room, but for some unknown reason, the heat of the oven room never caused an explosion.

The “Nazi collaborator” who struck a deal with the Germans

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust, Uncategorized, World War II — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 7:51 am

In this news article, you can read about Rezso Kasztner, the man who saved Hungarian Jews from the Nazis during the Holocaust: http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/holocaust-hero-outed-nazi-collaborator-9264239

Auschwitz-Wartime 3

Hungarian Jews who were sent to  Auschwitz-Birkenau

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

A Jewish man [Kasztner] hailed as a Holocaust hero for saving thousands [of Jews] from the gas chambers during World War II was actually a Nazi collaborator, it has been claimed.

Journalist and lawyer Rezso (AKA Rudolf) Kasztner was known for his role as an underground leader – but new research suggests he was a “conscious tool” [of the Nazis] in the Holocaust.

Paul Bogdanor, an expert on Kasztner, believes the man actually helped the Nazis to murder almost half a million Jewish men, women and children during Hitler’s ‘Final Solution’.

Until now, the Hungarian [Kasztner] was considered a hero for rescuing fellow Jews from the clutches of the [Nazi] Gestapo.

He smuggled them out of Budapest on a secret train bound for the free world following the German invasion [of Hungary].

End quote

I blogged about the Hungarian Jews on this previous blog post:  https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2015/08/17/the-holocaust-is-mainly-the-strory-of-the-hungarian-jews/

And on this previous blog post: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2013/09/14/some-565000-hungarian-jews-were-murdered-in-the-holocaust-according-to-yad-vashem/

Most of the Holocaust survivors, who are out on the lecture circuit today, teaching young children about the Holocaust, were Hungarian Jews who survived Auschwitz.

What to expect on a visit to Auschwitz…

Most people join a tour group when they arrange a visit to Auschwitz. It is possible to go there completely alone, without a guide, but few people do.
