Holocaust survivor writes his memoir at the age of 90

90-year-old Holocaust survivor Samuel Pivnik visits  the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp where he was a prisoner

Note that, in the photo above, you can see a faint view of the gate into the camp. My photo below shows the same view of the gate into the Auschswitz-Birkenau camp.

My photo of the gate into Auschwitz-Birkenau

Auschwitz-Birkenau was a death camp where Jews were killed in gas chambers with Zyklon-B gas; why was Samuel Pivnik spared?

The following quote is from a news article which you can read in full at http://www.dw.com/en/why-one-of-the-last-remaining-auschwitz-survivors-wrote-a-memoir-decades-later/a-39208305

Begin quote

DW: Mister Pivnik, you are 90 years old. Why did you decide to tell your story in a book recently? The book, “Survivor: Auschwitz, the Death March and my Fight for Freedom,” was published in English in 2013 and in German in 2017. Why not earlier?

Samuel Pivnik: It was only in the late 1990s that I seriously started to consider writing my memoirs. Other survivors I knew had already written books.

Sam Pivnik (Philip Appleby) Pivnik, now 90, lives in London

There was really no interest in our stories immediately after the war. It wasn’t until I was approached by a close friend of mine in 1999, the artist David Breuer-Weil, who urged me very strongly to write. He felt that I had an obligation to humanity to tell my story so that people could learn lessons that may help to prevent them from descending into the depths of depravity again. I then began to seriously start the process. It wasn’t until 2011 that my agent introduced me to a professional ghostwriter named Mei Trow. As a result of my work with him, the book started to interest big publishers.

End quote

The photo at the top of this page shows the railroad tracks into the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp. Jews were brought on trains to this death camp and were allegedly gassed to death immediately with Zyklon-B.

Auschwitz is a name that was virtually unknown before 1989. Now it has become a symbol for The Holocaust, which was the Nazi plan to systematically exterminate all the Jews of Europe; this allegedly resulted in the deaths of 6 million Jews.

Auschwitz is the site of the greatest mass murder of all time, the most infamous Nazi death factory, the primary killing site where the “Final Solution to the Jewish Question” was carried out by means of homicidal gas chambers, the most heinous place on earth.

An estimated 1.3 million victims arrived at Auschwitz between June 1940 and January 1945 and 1.1 million of them died there, including over 900,000 Jews. Today there are millions of visitors who tour Auschwitz-Birkenau each year.

The world first learned that the Jews were being gassed at Auschwitz when resistance fighters in the Polish Underground passed this information on to the Polish government in exile in Great Britain.

On June 25, 1942, The Telegraph, a British newspaper, ran a story about the mass murder of Jews in gas chambers at Auschwitz. The headline read “Germans murder 700,000 Jews in Poland.” According to this first report, which was also broadcast on the radio by the British BBC in June 1942, a thousand Jews a day were being gassed.

Auschwitz is more than one place: it is a small town in what is now Poland, but the name Auschwitz also refers to three separate prison camps called Auschwitz I, Auschwitz II and Auschwitz III, all of which were located just outside the town. The Auschwitz complex was an extermination camp, a labor camp, a transit camp and a concentration camp, all rolled into one.

Auschwitz I was the main camp; it was a Class I concentration camp, which was opened in June 1940 in the barracks of a former Polish Army garrison. The first prisoners were mostly non-Jewish Polish political prisoners, but a few Jews were also imprisoned there.

Auschwitz II was the death camp where million of prisoners, mainly Jews, were allegedly killed, mostly in gas chambers; today, Auschwitz is the world’s largest Jewish graveyard, the place where the ashes of innocent victims were scattered over the fields, thrown into the rivers, or dumped into several small ponds sixty five years ago.

Auschwitz III was a work camp where prisoners worked in the factories of the I.G. Farben company, along side civilian workers who were not prisoners.

The town of Auschwitz, which was originally founded by Germans in 1270, is now known by its Polish name, Oswiecim, and the three camps are known as Auschwitz, Birkenau, and Monowitz. The Polish name for Birkenau is Brzezinka and Monowitz is called Monowice by the Poles.

In June 2007, the United Nations officially changed the collective name of the three Auschwitz camps to Auschwitz-Birkenau, German Nazi Concentration and Extermination Camp (1940-1945). This change was made at the request of the government of Poland so that people will know that Poland had nothing to do with setting up the camps or running them.

The Holocaust was the most important thing that ever happened in the entire history of the world

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust, Uncategorized, World War II — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 8:33 am

On my blog today, I am commenting on a news article, about Bronia Brandman, which you can read in full at https://www.brooklyneagle.com/articles/2017/5/8/holocaust-survivor-makes-emotional-return-auschwitz

The news article starts off with this quote:

Begin quote

In an emotional journey that served as her ultimate triumph over the Nazis, an elderly Borough Park resident [Bronia Brandman] who survived the horrors of the Holocaust paid a return visit to the infamous Auschwitz death camp — this time as a free woman.

It was the first time Bronia Brandman, 86, had seen Auschwitz since her liberation nearly 72 years ago.

End quote

Then Brandia’s story continues with her own story of what happened to her during the Holocaust:

Begin quote

“I came to Auschwitz in 1943 as a child of 12. My parents and four siblings were consigned to the gas chambers. The daily bestiality and dehumanization was beyond words, and the world’s silence was deafening,” Brandman said in a statement. “I never wished to return to that place of our degradation and annihilation, but to return in the presence of our noblest, the bravest of the brave — our IDF soldiers, allows my spirit to soar with pride and hope.”

Her journey back to Auschwitz was part of a 10-day trip to Poland and Israel sponsored by FIDF.

Israeli soldiers and FIDF supporters accompanied a group of Holocaust survivors across Poland and Israel. The trip began on April 24 and ended on May 3.

End quote

What am I complaining about now, you ask? I am writing about this woman because she has no conception of why the Germans put Jews into camps during World War II. She also has no conception of the reason why she was not killed, along with the 6 million Jews who were allegedly killed.

Why did the Nazis save young children who would live for years and tell the world about the Holocaust? Stupid Nazis!!!

Wolf Blitzer — the son of two Holocaust survivors

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust, Uncategorized — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 2:56 pm

What are the chances that two Holocaust survivors would marry and produce a son who would become a world famous journalist?

Wolf Blitzer Grills Sean Spicer on Holocaust: Did You ‘Not Know’ Nazis Used Gas Chambers?

Quoted above is the headline of a recent news article: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2017/04/11/wolf-blitzer-grills-sean-spicer-on-holocaust-did-you-not-know-nazis-used-gas-chambers.html

The following quote is from the article:

Begin quote

A pained-looking Sean Spicer faced off with a disgusted Wolf Blitzer on Tuesday evening in a tense exchange that did not leave the White House press secretary in better shape following his outrageous claim earlier in the day that Adolf Hitler “didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons” in World War II.

First, Blitzer just wanted to know why Spicer decided to make an analogy between Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad and the perpetrator of the Holocaust in the first place. “As you know, 6 million Jews were killed in the Holocaust, many of them with poison gas,” the CNN anchor reminded his guest.

“I was obviously trying to make a point about the heinous acts that Assad had made against his own people last week using chemical weapons and gas,” Spicer said. “And frankly, I mistakenly used an inappropriate and insensitive reference to the Holocaust, for which frankly, there is no comparison. For that, I apologize. It was a mistake to do that.”

End quote

Excuse me, but I don’t think that a world famous news man should complain about someone not mentioning the Holocaust. Wolf Blitzer will cause more people to deny the Holocaust. What kind of Holocaust is it when two people are left alive, to produce  a world famous journalist?

Holocaust victims had to wear “ersatz trousers”

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.

My final thoughts about Majdanek

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 12:54 pm

Here are my final thoughts about Majdanek, a former Nazi death camp in Poland:

Imagine you are driving down I-5, a super highway in California, and there is heavy traffic, with no place to pull over and stop. Imagine that someone says to you “Look over there and you will see a gas chamber building where the Nazis gassed Jews.”

You look out the window and you see two identical buildings, so you say “Which one?” Your guide tells you that the gas chamber is the building on the left, and that the identical building on the right was used for delousing the clothing of the prisoners.

You say: “Can I see the delousing building first?” and your guide says “No, you may not. You may not go anywhere near the delousing building and you cannot peek into the windows because they are covered.”

At this point, you say to yourself: “Something wrong!”

Then imagine that you drive a few more feet down this major highway, and your tour guide says “Look over there, that two-story white house is where the Majdanek Commandant lived with his wife and three young daughters.”

You are very upset! You say “Do you mean to say that three young girls were living in a house that was literally a stone’s throw from a homicidal gas chamber?”

Your tour guide says “Don’t worry, the wife and daughters  were not isolated. This highway goes into the city of Lublin (pronounced Loo-Bleen), which is only a few miles away. Lublin is a major city.”

You say, “But the three children must have been very unhappy because they were cooped up in the house, and could not play outside.”

Your guide says, “No, the girls played outside every day; their yard was very large and they had a doll house and a swing set.”

You are appalled! Little girls playing outside, while, a few yards away, Jews are marching into gas chambers to be killed.

That’s when you begin to understand that the Nazis really were the worst people in the world.

the Kraków report

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust, World War II — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 8:56 am

A reader of my blog mentioned the Kraków report in a comment. Other followers of my blog might want to know what was in the Kraków report.

The following quote is from the Kraków report:

An Official Polish Report on the Auschwitz ‘Gas Chambers’

Kraków Forensic Institute Confirms Leuchter’s Findings

A recent investigation by a Polish government agency has authoritatively corroborated the findings of Fred Leuchter from his detailed 1988 on-site forensic examination of supposed German wartime extermination gas chambers.

The American execution expert concluded that the “gas chambers” in the former concentration camps of Auschwitz, Birkenau and Majdanek were never used to kill people. (On Leuchter’s findings and the resulting international controversy, see his detailed Report, as well as The Journal of Historical Review, Summer 1989 and Winter 1990-91, and the IHR Newsletter, October 1990 and January 1991.)

Concerned at the impact of Leuchter’s widely-circulated Report, the Auschwitz State Museum, a Polish government agency, commissioned the Institute of Forensic Research (Instytut Ekspertyz Sadowych) of Krakow to carry out its own investigation. The result: In a carefully worded six-page internal forensic report, the Institute’s experts essentially replicated Leuchter’s findings and implicitly corroborated his conclusions.

End quote

In spite of this, it is still against the law to deny the Holocaust gas chambers in 20 countries.

Heinrich Himmler,”the monster in the round spectacles”

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 10:14 am

The title of my blog post today comes from an article which you can read in full at

http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/diary-reveals-heinrich-himmler-enjoyed-back-rub-before-killings/news-story/d190b719131293ada01bd5d931ec12a7

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

Himmler had been the one responsible for the introduction of gas chambers, after ordering that more “efficient” ways be found to complete his assigned task of killing Europe’s 11 million Jews.

The scale and horror of the task, however, did not daunt [Himmler] the monster in the round spectacles.

Himmler, like Hitler, liked to rise late and work well into the evening or the early hours.

A typical day, according to his diaries, began with a two-hour massage from Dr Felix Kersten to prepare for his day.

Another daily feature, dutifully recorded in his diary, were [was] his phone calls home to “Mammi and Puppi” — his pet names for wife Margarete and daughter Gudrun.

End quote

I had a childhood friend, whose nickname was “Poopie” which is the way that the word Puppi is pronounced. Correct me if I am wrong, but I think that the word Puppi means “little doll” in German.

The German word Mammi is pronounced the same as the English word Mommie, as far as I know. However, I believe that the German word Mutti, pronounced Mooty, was used more often back then.

The following quote is also from the news article:

Begin quote

The diaries cover 1938 as well as the crucial war years of 1943 and 1944. Historians studying them say they are “of shudderingly outstanding historical significance”.

Again, the understated nature of the entries about hugely significant events is staggering. For example, entries for October 4, 1943, recorded a visit to Poznan, in occupied Poland, for a series of meetings, lunch and, “17.30: speech to SS officers”.

The speech, in fact, was Himmler’s most explicit public description of the Holocaust, in which he described the SS’s mission as “the extermination of the Jewish race”.

He congratulated himself and the rest of the SS for carrying out this “difficult duty” while still being “decent fellows”.

End quote

After the war, Heinrich Himmler tried to escape by putting on a Wehrmacht uniform and a patch over one eye, but he was captured by the British Army about two weeks after the Germans surrendered.

Himmler allegedly committed suicide by biting down on a cyanide capsule, that he had managed to keep hidden in his mouth while eating a sandwich during his interrogation by the British.

Himmler’s daughter did not believe that her father committed suicide. Himmler and his daughter, Gudrun, are shown in the photo below.

The story is that Himmler had a cyanide capsule hidden in a hole in one of his back teeth. However, his daughter said that Himmler had a perfect set of teeth with no cavities nor holes.

Auschwitz guards put wounded prisoner Max Eisen on a stretcher to carry him to the gas chamber

Max Eisen was saved when he was pulled off a stregher taking him to the gas chamber

You can read the full story of Max Eisen in this news article: http://bcc.rcav.org/canadian/6355-holocaust-survivor-tells-story-of-his-lucky-escape

Begin quote from news article, cited above:

Canadian Max Eisen shares his experience surviving Auschwitz and the Holocaust in his new memoir “By Chance Alone.” Michael Swan / The Catholic Register.

[…]

As students ask him [Max Eisen] again how he found the will to survive even after his father and uncle had been gassed and he was living alone in the [Auschwitz-Birkenau] camp, Eisen again talks about family.

“We were living in a place where life was not worth a plugged nickel. My father tried to instil [instill] in me the will to go on,” he said. “You needed to be very resilient and you needed a lot of luck.”

Luck came in the form of a Polish doctor in the camp who treated Eisen for a serious head wound that resulted from a run-in with one of the SS guards.

He [Eisen] was still weak and woozy after his treatment, so the guards put Eisen on a stretcher to carry him to the gas chambers. The doctor pulled him off the stretcher, gave him a lab coat, and made him his cleaner and general dogsbody.

The story of Max Eisen illustrates how nice the Nazis were. After Eisen had a “run in” with an SS guard, he was not left lying wounded on the ground. No, he was carried ON A STRETCHER to a gas chamber so that he could have a proper Holocaust death.

Yes, the Holocaust happened; just ask Dr. Wolf Murmelstein

“Yes, the Holocaust happened.”

The title of my blog post today is a line from the letter which I received this morning from Dr. Wolf Murmelstein, the son of Dr. Benjamin Murmelstein, the last Jewish “elder” of Theresienstadt.

Yes, the Holocaust happened, and little nine-year-old Wolf was there, right in the middle of it.

This quote is from a letter written to me by Dr. Murmelstein, who is still mentally suffering from his childhood ordeal.

Begin Quote from Dr. Wolf Murmelstein’s letter to me:

Yes, the Holocaust happened. The Gas Chambers in the Death Camps were operating, the mass shootings were taking place (mainly in Russia and Ukraine), the Ghettos (including Theresienstadt) were places of starvation and disease; they were the anti-chambers to the Death Camps.

And no one who is commenting here [on this blog] — the fault-finding commentators — can answer this question: In what direction, and how did the large East, Central and South European Jewish communities disappear in the years from 1939 to 1945?

Asking your blog readers to think better about the Shoah, the Holocaust matter, I am

Sincerely yours,

Wolf Murmelstein.

Gate into the walled ghetto formerly known as Theresienstadt

Gate into the walled ghetto formerly known as Theresienstadt

Here is the full text of the letter which I received today from Dr. Wolf Murmelstein:

Begin quote:
My parents and myself survived at Theresienstadt for the simple reason that Eichmann, after the INTERNATIONAL RED CROSS visit of April 6, 1945 had no possibility, any more, of liquidating the so-called ‘Model Ghetto.”

The conclusion, that our survival proves that the Holocaust never took place, is very offensive.

Indeed, we have relatives who survived Auschwitz and the Death Marches, and relatives that we do not even know where, when and how they were murdered. We remember friends who left and never returned. Comments, that say they emigrated and changed names, are offensive and very stupid.

Mr. Berg and Mr. Leuchter simply do not acknowledge that, in USA prisons, the Gas Chambers can murder one or two victims at a single execution, but German Holocaust Technology solved the problem of mass murder in Gas Chambers by employing Zyclon B, which is lethal for lice, as well as lethal for human beings — even in rooms not sufficiently aired after “disinfection” or “murder”.

As the Nazis had been able to keep secret the details and designs of Gas Chambers employing Zyklon B, they had been kept secret; simple. Besides, Death Camps had been located far away from important cities; Auschwitz had been an exception for logistic reasons.

I started asking about what had occurred, and how it had occurred, some time after Liberation, when I was nine years old. I learned that events had to be studied while considering general historical background.

So I went on studying the Shoah – Holocaust – and history linked with the general, economic and social history of Europe.

I was 14 when I read [Eugene] Kogon about Buchenwald and 16 when I read the memories of Schacht about the German Economic problems during and after WWI and so on.

[“Der SS-Staat,” is a book written in 1946 by Eugen Kogon, an Austrian Social Democrat who was sent, as a prisoner, to Buchenwald because he was a political activist. This book is a rewrite of the Buchenwald Report, compiled by the US Army from interviews with the survivors.]

About Theresienstadt, Jewish emigration and Eichmann, I was able to speak with my Father about this for 40 years.

So I can answer many questions [about the Holocaust] on this blog according to my best knowledge.

When I am asked for forensic proof, such as autopsies of Death Camp victims, I can only say that I am fed up with all the fault finders and trouble makers, who have had their fun torturing survivors by questioning them, using well known police techniques, which often obtain confessions from persons who then turn out to be innocent; this often happens twenty years after they have been murdered in the Gas Chamber of a place of lawful executions.

Clearly, I would like to see many careless journalists, “historians”, and writers in the deepest hell, because their careless writing and talking about a tragedy is helpful … for the [Holocaust] deniers.

Political Zionism came about as the result of racism and antisemitism “fin de siecle” of the nineteenth century when Theodore Herzl reported to the Vienna NEUE FREIE PRESSE about the Dreyfus case. For European Jews it had been hard to emigrate to Palestine/Israel. But for many survivors, Israel had been the only possible solution as they could not return to Poland, Hungary, etc.

Photographs of the human hair in the Auschwitz Museum are no longer allowed

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 11:03 am

From a news article, which you can read in full here, I have learned that photographs of the hair, cut from the heads of the Jews at Auschwitz, are no longer allowed. Is this because the hair might be harmed by the flash of cameras? No, I think it is to prevent tourists from being trampled to death.

This quote is from the news article:

Knowing what was behind the glass [display cases] made it all so surreal.

Kevin Wagner of Carlisle was told heading into the [museum] room that no photography was allowed; that the contents [of the display cases] were considered holy by Jews.

There piled high from floor to ceiling [in a display case] was a mound of human hair shaved from the heads of men, women and children doomed to suffer an untimely death in the gas chambers of Auschwitz.

It was a co-mingled mass of strands colored black, brown and red with some even done up in braids. It was way too much to process…way too much to take in at once. Overwhelmed, Wagner broke down and cried while two others in the group left the room unsettled by the sight of so much lost humanity.

“How could another human being do this to somebody?” recalled Wagner, social studies program chair for the Carlisle Area School District.

“It was methodically efficient,” he added. “You can’t wrap your head around how someone can come up with that.”

Wait a minute! Was the hair cut from the heads of the Jews before or after they went into the gas chamber?  It would have been difficult to cut the hair from the dead bodies AFTER the Jews were gassed, so the hair must have been cut BEFORE the gassing. So why does the hair show the effects of gassing?

Personally, I think that the reason that photographs of the hair at Auschwitz are no longer allowed, is because there were, in the past, so many tourists crowding around the hair exhibit, trying to take photos, that there was a serious danger of someone being trampled to death.

When I first visited the exhibits in the main Auschwitz camp in 1998, there were so many people trying to take photos of the hair that I could not get close enough to take a photo. I had to be satisfied with taking a photo of a small amount of human hair.

Hungarian Jewish women head to their baracks aftr their heads were shaved

The photo above shows that the hair of the women at Auschwitz was cut before they were sent to the gas chamber.  In fact, these women look as if they have been selected to work at Auschwitz-Birkenau. Why was their hair shaved?  The hair must have been shaved to prevent typhus, which is spread by lice that hides in the hair. Their public hair was also shaved — by a man.

This quote is also from the news article, cited above:

As World War II in Europe drew to a close, the Red Army of the Soviet Union was advancing rapidly from the east. Eager to hide evidence of the Holocaust, the Nazis burned to the ground the death camp at Belzec.

Wagner [who visited Belzec] described that memorial as a lunar landscape on a slope with a center path where visitors walk down a ramp to a wall carved with hundreds of Jewish surnames. The further Wagner descended, the more confining the space until he felt as though he was about to suffocate.

On my trips to Poland, many years ago, I did not visit Belzec because my tour guide told me that there was absolutely nothing there to see, except an empty field; the memorial had not yet been built. The Holocaust allegedly started with the gassing of Jews at Belzec, so why did Belzec get no respect for many years?
