The following quote is from the article, cited above:
But by the sheer force of his personality and his gift for the haunting phrase, Mr. Wiesel, who had been liberated from Buchenwald as a 16-year-old with the indelible tattoo A-7713 on his arm, gradually exhumed the Holocaust from the burial ground of the history books.
It was this speaking out against forgetfulness and violence that the Nobel committee recognized when it awarded him the peace prize in 1986.
Note that the lies told by Elie the Liar have not been rubbed out.

This news article is about the failure of the Allies to bomb Auschwitz-Birkeanu in order to save the Jews from being gassed: http://www.jpost.com/Opinion/New-whitewash-of-FDRs-failure-to-bomb-Auschwitz-453127
The following quote is from the news article:
If only Alonzo Hamby had met George McGovern!
Hamby is the author of a new biography of president Franklin D. Roosevelt which defends FDR’ s failure to bomb Auschwitz, on the grounds that it was too far away for US planes to reach. McGovern, the US senator and 1972 Democratic presidential nominee, was one of the World War II pilots who actually bombed oil sites at Auschwitz – proving that it was, in fact, not out of reach at all.
On August 7, 1944, US bombers attacked the Trzebinia oil refineries, just 21 km. from the gas chambers. On August 20, a squadron of 127 US bombers, accompanied by the all-African American unit known as the Tuskegee Airmen, struck oil factories less than 8 km. from the gas chambers.
A teenage slave laborer named Elie Wiesel witnessed the August 20 raid. A glance at Wiesel’s best-selling book Night would have enlightened Hamby. Wiesel wrote: “If a bomb had fallen on the blocks [the prisoners’ barracks], it alone would have claimed hundreds of victims on the spot.
But then again, McGovern’s statements about bombing Auschwitz have been widely available on the Internet for more than a decade now. Hamby could have located them with even the most cursory search of the literature on the subject. Thus one suspects that even if Hamby had known of McGovern’s experiences he would have looked for some other way to exonerate the Roosevelt administration for its refusal to bomb Auschwitz.
But FDR and his administration do not deserve to be exonerated. Dropping a few bombs on Auschwitz or the railway lines leading to it would not have undermined the war effort; it simply would have conflicted with Roosevelt’s view that the war against the Jews was a sideshow which was not America’s concern. The president who presented himself to the public as the champion of the “forgotten man,” as someone who embodied humane values and cared about the downtrodden, turned his back on the most compelling moral challenge of our times.
The author is founding director of The David S. Wyman Institute for Holocaust Studies.
The author should update his information. Elie Wiesel has finally admitted that he was never in Auschwitz-Birkenau, nor in any other camp.
In my humble opinion, bombing Auaschwitz-Birkenau would have killed more Jews than would have been saved. FDR was no dummy!

Elie Wiesel has recently admitted that he has no ID number tattooed on his arm, which is an admission that he was never in a concentration camp, as he has been claiming for years.
He was not a prisoner at Auschwitz, where all incoming prisoners were immediately tattooed with a number on their arm.
The gate into the Buchenwald camp is shown in the photo above.
He was not at Buchenwald which was a class II concentration camp in Germany. The sign on the gate into the camp reads “Jedem das Seine” which is German for “Everyone gets what he deserves.”
I have a section about Buchenwald on my website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/Buchenwald/index.html
According to a recent news article, Elie Wiesel was quoted as follows:
“I belong to a generation that has seen probably the darkest of its moments and lived them …but also the happiest. The Day of Liberation [of Buchenwald]…when suddenly, the Americans came in! Days earlier, 10,000 left Buchenwald [to be killed] and [we] were the last to leave literally the last…. we were supposed to leave the next day. ”
I have written extensively about Elie Wiesel and the liberation of Buchenwald on my scrapbookpages.com website:

I received an e-mail this morning in which I was alerted to a new blog post by Carolyn Yeager entitled “Elie admits he doesn’t have tattoo A7713.”
This quote is from the e-mail message:
Elie admits he doesn’t have the tattoo A7713
A7713 IS A NUMBER that is widely recognized because of the story Night written by Elie Wiesel.
According to the story, 15-year old Eliezer had that number tattooed on his left forearm two days after he arrived at Auschwitz-Birkenau in May (or was it April?) 1944.
Wiesel says the story is a true report of his life experience and that he has that number on his arm still today. Yet by refusing to show it to the public for the past 60 years, he is as good as admitting that he does not have it.
In courts of law, whenever a claimant fails to provide proof of his claim, he forfeits his right to that claim. Wiesel has failed to provide proof that he has the tattoo so he must give up the claim. This is the clearest admission he could make, would you not agree? I mean, we’re not talking about a private area of his body that he would not want to expose, but only his left forearm.

I wrote about Elie Wiesel on my website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/AuschwitzScrapbook/History/Articles/HungarianJews4.html
I wrote the web page, cited above, before Caroline Yeager started her blog. In other words, I was questioning Elie Wiesel’s story long before this became an issue.
I have written several blog posts under the tag “Elie Wiesel” which you can read at https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/tag/elie-wiesel/

I am currently reading a new book, written by Warren B. Routledge, about the Holocaust High Priest, which you may have guessed is Elie Wiesel. The sub-title of the book is “Elie Wiesel, Night, The Memory Cult, and the Rise of Revisionism.”
I usually don’t start reading a non-fiction book by beginning on the first page. I like to skip around, using the index, to locate the best parts. In this case, the index is not designed for that kind of reading.
The Forward of the book starts off by describing how Elie Wiesel and his father followed the Germans when they abandoned Auschwitz, although they had been given a choice: Elie could have stayed in his cozy, warm hospital bed and waited for the nice Soviet soldiers to liberate him. Instead, he jumped out of his hospital bed and followed those evil German SS men out of the camp. Why wasn’t he afraid of being Holocausted?
So right away, this book tells you “Something wrong!” Why would Elie and his father march for miles through the snow, following those evil Germans when there were nice Russian soldiers coming to save them?
I thought that I knew everything about the Holocaust and Elie Wiesel, but in Chapter 1, I learned new information that I didn’t know before. So I am very glad that I didn’t skip around in reading the book, as I usually do.
Chapter 1 gets started on page 19. It is about a man that I had never heard of. My first thought was that I certainly would not have started a book by writing some boring story about a man that nobody had ever heard of before. But I kept on reading and learned that this information is extremely important.
I am almost to the end. On the very last page are two photos of the 1947 drawings done by David Olere, which depict Elie Wiesel’s description of what he saw on his first Night at Auschwitz.
I learned something new about the painting shown in the photo above. The left side of the painting, as shown on my website, has been cut off. So to sum up, there is more to the story of Elie Wiesel that I didn’t know until I started reading this book.
In the book, there is a lot of coverage of the famous photo taken at Buchenwald, which allegedly shows Elie Wiesel. The author of this book gives a lot of information regarding the photo.
I wrote about the photo on this blog post: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2010/03/25/famous-photo-of-buchenwald-survivors-revisited/

Yesterday, I tried to order the new book by Warren B. Routledge, which has just been published, but it was not yet available on Amazon.com. Today I received an e-mail from the author himself, who alerted me to the news that the book is now ready to order. I put in my order as fast as I could and now I am eagerly waiting for the book to arrive.
Here is the full title and information about the book: Holocaust High Priest: Elie Wiesel, “Night,” the Memory Cult, and the Rise of Revisionism (Holocaust Handbooks) (Volume 30) Paperback – April 17, 2015 by Warren B. Routledge (Author)
To prepare for reading this book, you might want to read this website: http://www.eliewieseltattoo.com/
I have written extensively on my blog about Elie Wiesel and his claim that he was in a famous photo, taken at Buchenwald. https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2012/01/23/the-famous-buchenwald-photo-is-that-elie-wiesel-or-a-40-year-old-man/
Here is a quote from the promo of the book:
Holocaust High Priest weaves together five compelling and interrelated narratives. The book’s main concern is to present the world’s first unauthorized biography of Elie Wiesel. It shines the light of truth on the mythomaniac who, in the 1970s, transformed the word “Holocaust” and made it the brand name of the world’s greatest hoax: the unfounded claim by an extremist segment of World Jewry to the effect that the German government’s wartime policy of territorial transfer of Europe’s Jews out of the Reich was in actuality an “extermination program.” In these pages, both Wiesel’s personal deceits and the whole myth of “the six million” are mercilessly exposed and laid bare for the reader’s perusal. Unfortunately, Zionist control of the U.S. Government as well as the nation’s media and academic apparatus has allowed Wiesel and his fellow extremists to force a string of U.S. presidents to genuflect before this imposter

The photo immediately above shows the altar in the 6,000 square-foot Hall of Remembrance on the second floor of the US Holocaust Memorial Museum, which is on 14th Street in Washington, DC. The room has 6 sides which represent the 6 million Jews who were murdered in the Holocaust, and the 6-pointed Star of David, which is the Jewish emblem. The Hall is three stories high and there is a 6-sided skylight at the top.
The US Holocaust Memorial Museum is a place for non-Jews to worship in the Holocaustianity religion. When I visited the Museum, a few years ago, I did not see anyone that I could identify as Jewish.
The title of my blog post today comes from an entry on Metapedia which I have quoted below:
Holocaustianity (also known as the Holocaust religion and Shoaismus) is a secular religion, created by proponents of Talmudism for gentile consumption since the late 20th century. It is based primarily upon enforced guilt and self-loathing over alleged Jewish casualties during World War II and the supposed “moral authority” in the world of Talmudic Jews. It acts as the spiritual wing of the international exploitation racket known as the Holocaust industry. The religion is the de facto state religion in Germany, United States, France and elsewhere. The pilgrim’s site “Israel” which is at the same time also a home of many priests of the Shoaismus is visited by believers often and with pleasure and seems to the pilgrim to give plentiful material blessing.
There are several quotes from individuals on the Metapedia page for Holocaustianity, including this quote from Eli Wiesel:
In the beginning was the Holocaust. We must therefore begin again. We must create a new Talmud and compile new midrashim, just as we did after the Surban, the destruction of the Second Temple. We did so then in order to mark the new beginning until then we lived one way, from then on nothing could be the same.
Elie Wiesel: High Priest of Holoaustianity, 1967
Metapedia acknowledges that, as in all religions, there are heretics who don’t believe the gospel truth that is promoted in Holocaustianity.
The following quote is from Metapedia:
Like other religions before it has also got of the Shoaismus to lift the separation of state and religion. In some states, as for example of the FRG, this connection of Shoaismus and state is so narrow that heretics, i.e. the apprenticeship deviating from the Shoaismus is pursued drastically by criminal law. In addition heretics which are called themselves Revisionists are pursued by the Shoaists as a Holocaust-doubting people and are incarcerated every now and then also for several years. [H]eretic works are put on an index to prevent the spreading or also immediately drawn and pulped.
Besides, one must write by no means heretic so revisionist, Holocaust-denying everything, works to be pursued as a heretics, but it is enough just like that to express doubt in from the Shoaists as an evident fact the honoured holy Holocaust. Also bare sympathy manifestations for Revisionisten or revisionist works are sufficient to loose favour of the ruling.
According to the Metapedia page, Angela Merkel and Glenn Beck are both “Known Shoaists.” I don’t think so. IMHO, they are both just trying to protect themselves.

A news article from Canada, which you can read in full here, clarifies the new rules regarding what you can say about the Holocaust without fear of going to prison for 5 years.
This quote is from the news article:
Forms of Holocaust denial also include blaming the Jews for either exaggerating or creating the Shoah for political or financial gain as if the Shoah itself was the result of a conspiracy plotted by the Jews.
Are there any Holocaust survivors out there, exaggerating or writing books for financial gain? No, of course not. Elie Wiesel hasn’t made a penny off his exaggerated Holocaust claims. Neither has Eva Kor, nor Irene Zisblatt.
This quote is also from the news article:
Holocaust denial may include publicly denying or calling into doubt the use of principal mechanisms of destruction (such as gas chambers, mass shooting, starvation and torture) or the intentionality of the genocide of the Jewish people.
Why would anyone ever doubt the gas chambers? Every one of the gas chambers, used by the Nazis in the genocide of the Jews, was obviously a working gas chamber, air tight, with a 40 foot vent pipe on the roof, a means of heating the Zyklon-B pellets to 78.3 degrees, and a means of dropping the Zyklon-B pellets into the room — NOT!!!
You can see photos of the Nazi gas chambers on a previous blog post here.
The photo above shows a real gas chamber, and don’t you deny it, unless you want to go to prison for 5 years.
Note that the gas chamber is explosion proof, with no hot ovens next door — NOT!!! Note the wooden door in the background, which made the room air tight — NOT!!! Note the light fixtures, which are explosion proof — NOT!!! (The wooden door had been added when the room was converted into an air raid shelter by the Germans in 1943.)
This quote is from Fred Leuchter, a gas chamber expert, who says that the alleged gas chambers were not workable:
4. Construction [of the Nazi gas chambers]
Construction of these facilities shows that they were never used as gas chambers. None of these facilities were sealed or gasketed. No provision was ever made to prevent condensation of gas on the walls, floor or ceiling. No provision ever existed to exhaust the air-gas mixture from these buildings. No provision ever existed to introduce or distribute the gas throughout the chamber. No explosion-proof lighting existed and no attempt was ever made to prevent gas from entering the crematories, even though the gas is highly explosive. No attempt was made to protect operating personnel from exposure to the gas or to protect other non-participating persons from exposure. Specifically, at Auschwitz, a floor drain in the alleged gas chamber was connected directly to the camp’s storm drain system. At Majdanek a depressed walkway around the alleged gas chambers would have collected gas seepage and resulted in a death trap for camp personnel. No exhaust stacks ever existed. Hydrogen cyanide gas is an extremely dangerous and lethal gas, and nowhere were there any provisions to effect any amount of safe handling. The chambers were too small to accommodate more than a small fraction of the alleged numbers. Plain and simple, these facilities could not have operated as execution gas chambers.
Note that Leuchter mentioned “a floor drain in the alleged gas chamber.” The floor drain was actually in another room, which had a door with a glass window in it, that was added to the Auschwitz gas chamber by the Soviet Union when they reconstructed the Auschwitz gas chamber. At the time that Leuchter examined the gas chamber, the staff at Auschwitz was claiming that the gas chamber was original. Tour guides were claiming that the gas chamber included the room that has the door with a glass window and the floor drain.
I blogged about the floor drain in the Auschwitz gas chamber here.
I was first called a “Holocaust denier” when I pointed out the floor drains in the Dachau gas chamber here.
This quote is at the beginning of the news article about Holocaust denial:
“A Working Definition of Holocaust Denial and Distortion” – The present definition is an expression of the awareness that Holocaust denial and distortion have to be challenged and denounced nationally and internationally and need examination at a global level. IHRA adopted the following working definition of holocaust denial and distortion:
Holocaust denial is discourse and propaganda that deny the historical reality and the extent of the extermination of the Jews by the Nazis and their accomplices during World War II, known as the Holocaust or the Shoah. Holocaust denial refers specifically to any attempt to claim that the Holocaust or Shoah did not take place.
So what does this mean? At the Nuremberg International Military Tribunal, where the Nazis were put on trial after the war, the Soviet Union claimed that 4 million people had been killed at Auschwitz, and 1.5 million were killed at Majdanek. Now the ESTIMATE of the number of Jews killed at Auschwitz is 900,000, and the records at Majdanek show that 59,000 Jews died at Majdanek. Which figures are we required to believe, under the new definition of Holocaust denial?
I am going to go with 4 million at Auschwitz and 1.5 million at Majdanek, because this adds up to 5.5 million, a figure that is close to the 6 million that is the required belief. The figures of 900,000 and 59,000 add up to less than 1 million. Where did the other 5 million Jews die?
This quote from the news article explains “Holocaust distortion,” the new form of Holocaust denial:
What is Holocaust distortion?
Distortion of the Holocaust refers to:
a. Intentional efforts to excuse or minimize the impact of the Holocaust or its principal elements, including collaborators and allies of Nazi Germany;
b. Gross minimization of the number of the victims of the Holocaust in contradiction to reliable sources;
c. Attempts to blame the Jews for causing their own genocide;
d. Statements that cast the Holocaust as a positive historical event. Those statements are not Holocaust denial but are closely connected to it as a radical form of anti-Semitism. They may suggest that the Holocaust did not go far enough in accomplishing its goal of “the Final Solution of the Jewish Question”;
e. Attempts to blur the responsibility for the establishment of concentration and death camps devised and operated by Nazi Germany by putting blame on other nations or ethnic groups.
The last definition is a tricky one: Is it a crime to say that America had internment camps for “enemies of the state”? I would go with “Nazi Germany was the only country that put people in camps during Word War II.” Definitely, I would go with saying that Italy had no camps, because that would “blur the responsibility for the establishment of concentration and death camps” by Nazi Germany.
In my opinion, the new definition of Holocaust denial needs some explicit details, regarding what we are required to believe. For example, are we required to believe that the Nazis marched Jews out of the camps for the purpose of killing them by marching?
Are we required to believe that Ohrdruf, a sub-camp of Buchenwald, was a “holding camp” for prisoners waiting to be gassed in the gas chamber at Buchenwald?
Holocaust denial began when Paul Rassinier, “the father of Holocaust denial,” denied that there was a gas chamber at Buchenwald. Do we have to go back to the days when it was required to believe that there was a gas chamber at Buchenwald?
To be on the safe side, I would go with a “gas chamber at Buchenwald.” After all, Elie Wiesel, who claims that he was a prisoner at Buchenwald, although he has no Buchenwald ID number, says that he was saved from the gas chamber at Buchenwald, just in the nick of time.
July 17, 2013
I have a whole library of books about World War II and the Holocaust, but none that I have purchased recently. Today, I decided that it is time for me to read some new books because the Holocaust story is changing daily. That’s why I did a search to find out if Ken Waltzer’s proposed book about the Buchenwald orphans has been released yet.
The first website that came up in my search was Carolyn Yeager’s www.eliewieseltatto.com where I found this quote:
This writer [Carolyn Yeager] suspects that Ken Waltzer is having difficulty convincingly incorporating Elie Wiesel into the story of the “boys of Buchenwald” and their rescue. He has been a friend and devotee of Wiesel for many years, they are both strongly associated with the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, and Wiesel has been a part of his Buchenwald story from the beginning. But the real evidence for Elie Wiesel ever being an inmate at Buchenwald doesn’t exist. There are no photographs of Elie Wiesel at Buchenwald. There are no photos of Wiesel during his supposed concentration camp period at all.
I think Waltzer believed this slipshod approach he employs would pass without comment, but he didn’t count on the appearance of Elie Wiesel Cons the World website. We are a real problem for Ken Waltzer!
Yeager is the English spelling of the German word Jäger which means Hunter. You can read the definition of the word Waltzer here: [German Walzer, from walzen, to turn about, from Middle High German, to roll, from Old High German walzan; see wel-2 in Indo-European roots.]
What’s in a name? Carolyn is the hunter and Ken is the walzer. How appropriate! He has been dancing around for 6 years now, while she has been relentlessly hunting him down.
I think that Ken Waltzer has now tacitly admitted that Elie Wiesel was never in Buchenwald, nor in any other concentration camp. Waltzer has been saved from total embarrassment by Carolyn Yeager. She has prevented him from writing a book that would have been full of lies. He would have been disgraced as the new Rosenblat, if Carolyn had not saved him.
