New article by Carolyn Yeager accuses Professor Ken Waltzer of being a “fraud”

I just got a pingback from wordpress because another blogger quoted a comment on my blog in a new post that went up this morning on the blog entitled Elie Wiesel Cons the World.

This quote is from the article, written by Carolyn Yeager, that you can read in full here:

I [Carolyn Yeager] wrote back to him [Ken Waltzer] asking where I could find it [his essay] because I wanted to read it. No reply – which is typical because factual information is not his forte, emotional rhetoric is. What might be in his essay on Elie Wiesel and Buchenwald? Will it be the same as he wrote in a March 6, 2010 comment at Scrapbookpages Blog, when he said:

[Begin Quote]
For the skeptics [I was using the name skeptic then -cy] and know-nothings who have written in suggesting Eli Wiesel was not in the camps, that Night is purely fiction, you are all dead wrong. The Red Cross International Tracing Service Archives documents for Lazar Wiesel and his father prove beyond any doubt that Lazar and his father arrived from Buna to Buchenwald January 26, 1945, that his father soon died a few days later, and that Lazar Wiesel was then moved to block 66, the children’s block in the little camp in Buchenwald. THese documents are backed up by military interviews with others from Sighet who were also in block 66, and by the list of Buchenwald boys sent thereafter to France. All of this is public domain.

Wishful thinking by Holocaust deniers will not make their fantasies true. While Wiesel took liberties in writing Night as a literary masterpiece, Night is rooted in the foundation of Wiesel’s experience in the camps. The Buchenwald experience, particularly, runs closely to what is related in Night.

I usually don’t allow name calling in the comments on my blog, but I let “know-nothings” pass because Know Nothings refers to a political party from the dim past.

Ms. Yeager wrote in her latest blog post that the web page, in which Ken Waltzer identified Elie Wiesel in a photo of the boys of Buchenwald marching out of the camp, has been taken down and replaced by another page.   I previously blogged about the web page that was taken down; you can read my blog post here.

Carolyn Yeager is absolutely fearless.  She’s not afraid of Ken Waltzer, as he is finding out.  I would love to know what is going on behind the scenes, among the True Believers, in view of this latest accusation of fraud.

The day that the crematoria at Auschwitz-Birkenau were destroyed — according to Elie Wiesel’s book “Night.”

Filed under: Holocaust — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 9:29 am

Carolyn Yeager posted a new article on her blog Elie Wiesel Cons the World yesterday.  The title of the article is Elie Wiesel Knows Soviet “Liberators” Destroyed the Birkenau Crematoriums.  You can read the article in full here.

This quote is from Ms. Yeager’s blog:

The official Holocaust narrative has it that the Red Army did not arrive at the Auschwitz labor camps until January 27th, 1945—where they found some of the barracks burning, and also blown-up crematorium buildings which had housed “gas chambers.” This is the date that is commemorated all over the world as the Liberation of Auschwitz.

However, on page 87 of the novel Night it is stated that the Russians “liberated” the inmates who were left behind at Monowitz (Auschwitz III) on January 20th, two days after the bulk of the prisoners left on the one-day forced march to Gleiwitz, from where they were put on a train to Buchenwald.

I have always suspected that the Germans did not come back and blow up Krema II and Krema III two days after they left the camp on January 18, 1945.  Now we have the proof, from Elie Wiesel’s book which is required reading for every school child in America.  I read the book years ago, but I missed the significance of the statement that the Soviets arrived two days after the Germans left.

The official story of the Holocaust is that the Germans blew up the crematoria (the buildings which housed the gas chambers) in order to destroy the evidence of the gassing of prisoners at Auschwitz-Birkenau.  But we are asked to believe that they fooled around for months, while the Soviets were advancing across Poland, and did not destroy the evidence of gassing before they abandoned the camp.  The official story is that the Germans not only came back twice to blow up the gas chambers, but they filled in the holes in the roof so that, if the gas chambers were not completely destroyed, there would be no evidence of the holes through which the Zyklon-B was allegedly poured.

In the photo above, the collapsed roof of the underground gas chamber in Krema II can be seen in the foreground. The ruins of the undressing room, which is at right angles to the gas chamber, can be seen on the left. The International Monument, built in 1965, is in the background.  The ruins of Krema III are on the other side of the International Monument.  The International Monument was built on the road that leads to the Sauna where the incoming prisoners took a shower.  The Holocaust survivors, who are alive today and giving their testimony, saw the prisoners headed towards this road, where they turned and went to the shower room in the Sauna building where the clothing was disinfected.

The road to the Sauna building starts where the International Monument is now located
