New book about Elie Wiesel and the Holocaust

New book about Elie Wiesel and the Holocaust by Warren B. Routledge

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/

Filed under: Buchenwald, Holocaust — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 8:16 am

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:

Begin  quote:

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
