Elie Wiesel claims jews "burned alive in flaming ditches" and "ground spurted geysers of jewish blood"

"Every Jew, somewhere in his being, should set apart a zone of hate - healthy, virile hate - for what the German personifies and for what persists in the German." -Elie Wiesel 'Legends of Our Time' (1968), pp.177-178

A Prominent False Witness: Elie Wiesel

By Robert Faurisson

Elie Wiesel won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1986. He is generally accepted as a witness to the Jewish "Holocaust," and, more specifically, as a witness to the legendary Nazi extermination gas chambers. The Paris daily Le Monde emphasized at the time that Wiesel was awarded the Nobel Prize because: [1]
These last years have seen, in the name of so-called "historical revisionism," the elaboration of theses, especially in France, questioning the existence of the Nazi gas chambers and, perhaps beyond that, of the genocide of the Jews itself.

But in what respect is Elie Wiesel a witness to the alleged gas chambers? By what right does he ask us to believe in that means of extermination? In an autobiographical book that supposedly describes his experiences at Auschwitz and Buchenwald, he nowhere mentions the gas chambers. [2] He does indeed say that the Germans executed Jews, but ... by fire; by throwing them alive into flaming ditches, before the very eyes of the deportees! No less than that!

Here Wiesel the false witness had some bad luck. Forced to choose from among several Allied war propaganda lies, he chose to defend the fire lie instead of the boiling water, gassing, or electrocution lies. In 1956, when he published his testimony in Yiddish, the fire lie was still alive in certain circles. This lie is the origin of the term Holocaust. Today there is no longer a single historian who believes that Jews were burned alive. The myths of the boiling water and of electrocution have also disappeared. Only the gas remains.

The gassing lie was spread by the Americans. [3] The lie that Jews were killed by boiling water or steam (specifically at Treblinka) was spread by the Poles. [4] The electrocution lie was spread by the Soviets. [5]

The fire lie is of undetermined origin. It is in a sense as old as war propaganda or hate propaganda. In his memoir, Night, which is a version of his earlier Yiddish testimony, Wiesel reports that at Auschwitz there was one flaming ditch for the adults and another one for babies. He writes: [6]

Not far from us, flames were leaping from a ditch, gigantic flames. They were burning something. A lorry drew up at the pit and delivered its load -- little children. Babies! Yes, I saw it -- saw it with my own eyes ... Those children in the flames. (Is it surprising that I could not sleep after that? Sleep has fled from my eyes.)

A little farther on there was another ditch with gigantic flames where the victims suffered "slow agony in the flames." Wiesel's column was led by the Germans to within "three steps" of the ditch, then to "two steps." "Two steps from the pit we were ordered to turn to the left and made to go into a barracks."

An exceptional witness himself, Wiesel assures us of his having met other exceptional witnesses. Regarding Babi Yar, a place in Ukraine where the Germans executed Soviet citizens, among them Jews, Wiesel wrote: [7]

Later, I learn from a witness that, for month after month, the ground never stopped trembling; and that, from time to time, geysers of blood spurted from it.

These words did not slip from their author in a moment of frenzy: first, he wrote them, then some unspecified number of times (but at least once) he had to reread them in the proofs; finally, his words were translated into various languages, as is everything this author writes.

That Wiesel personally survived, was, of course, the result of a miracle. He says that: [8]

In Buchenwald they sent 10,000 persons to their deaths each day. I was always in the last hundred near the gate. They stopped. Why?

In 1954 French scholar Germaine Tillion analyzed the "gratuitous lie" with regard to the German concentration camps. She wrote: [9]
Those persons [who gratuitously lie] are, to tell the truth, much more numerous than people generally suppose, and a subject like that of the concentration camp world -- well designed, alas, to stimulate sado-masochistic imaginings -- offered them an exceptional field of action. We have known numerous mentally damaged persons, half swindlers and half fools, who exploited an imaginary deportation; we have known others of them -- authentic deportees -- whose sick minds strove to go even beyond the monstrosities that they had seen or that people said had happened to them. There have been publishers to print some of their imaginings, and more or less official compilations to use them, but publishers and compilers are absolutely inexcusable, since the most elementary inquiry would have been enough to reveal the imposture.

Tillion lacked the courage to give examples and names. But that is usually the case. People agree that there are false gas chambers that tourists and pilgrims are encouraged to visit, but they do not tell us where. They agree that there are false "eyewitnesses," but in general they name only Martin Gray, the well-known swindler, at whose request Max Gallo, with full knowledge of what he was doing, fabricated the bestseller For Those I Loved.

Jean-François Steiner is sometimes named as well. His bestselling novel Treblinka (1966) was presented as a work of which the accuracy of every detail was guaranteed by oral or written testimony. In reality it was a fabrication attributable, at least in part, to the novelist Gilles Perrault. [10] Marek Halter, for his part, published his La Mémoire d'Abraham in 1983; as he often does on radio, he talked there about his experiences in the Warsaw ghetto. However, if we are to believe an article by Nicolas Beau that is quite favorable to Halter, [11] little Marek, about three years old, and his mother left Warsaw not in 1941 but in October of 1939, before the establishment of the ghetto there by the Germans. Halter's book is supposed to have been actually written by a ghost writer, Jean-Noël Gurgan.

Filip Müller is the author of Eyewitness Auschwitz: Three Years in the Gas Chambers, [12] which won the 1980 prize of the International League against Racism and Anti-Semitism (LICRA). This nauseous best-seller is actually the work of a German ghost writer, Helmut Freitag, who did not hesitate to engage in plagiarism. [13] The source of the plagiarism is Auschwitz: A Doctor's Eyewitness Account, another best-seller made up out of whole cloth and attributed to Miklos Nyiszli. [14]

Thus a whole series of works presented as authentic documents turns out to be merely compilations attributable to various ghost writers: Max Gallo, Gilles Perrault, Jean-Noël Gurgan (?), and Helmut Freitag, among others.

We would like to know what Germaine Tillion thinks about Elie Wiesel today. With him the lie is certainly not gratuitous. Wiesel claims to be full of love for humanity. However, he does not refrain from an appeal to hatred. In his opinion: [15]

Every Jew, somewhere in his being, should set apart a zone of hate -- healthy, virile hate -- for what the German personifies and for what persists in the German. To do otherwise would be a betrayal of the dead.

At the beginning of 1986, 83 deputies of the German Bundestag took the initiative of proposing Wiesel for the Nobel Peace Prize. This would be, they said, "a great encouragement to all who are active in the process of reconciliation." [16] That is what might be called "going from National Socialism to national masochism."

Jimmy Carter needed a historian to preside over the President's Commission on the Holocaust. As Dr. Arthur Butz said so well, he chose not a historian but a "histrion": Elie Wiesel. Even the newspaper Le Monde, in the article mentioned above, was obliged to refer to the histrionic trait that certain persons deplore in Wiesel:

Naturally, even among those who approve of the struggle of this American Jewish writer, who was discovered by the Catholic François Mauriac, some reproach him for having too much of a tendency to change the Jewish sadness into "morbidity" or to become the high priest of a "planned management of the Holocaust."

As Jewish writer Leon A. Jick has written: "The devastating barb, 'There is no business like SHOAH-business' is, sad to say, a recognizable truth." [17]

Elie Wiesel issues alarmed and inflammatory appeals against Revisionist authors. He senses that things are getting out of hand. It is going to become more and more difficult for him to maintain the mad belief that the Jews were exterminated or were subjected to a policy of extermination, especially in so-called gas chambers. Serge Klarsfeld has admitted that real proofs of the existence of the gas chambers have still not yet been published. He promises proofs. [18]

On the scholarly plane, the gas chamber myth is finished. To tell the truth, that myth breathed its last breath several years ago at the Sorbonne colloquium in Paris (June 29-July 2, 1982), at which Raymond Aron and François Furet presided. What remains is to make this news known to the general public. However, for Elie Wiesel it is of the highest importance to conceal that news. Thus all the fuss in the media, which is going to increase: the more the journalists talk, the more the historians keep quiet.

But there are historians who dare to raise their voices against the lies and the hatred. That is the case with Michel de Boüard, wartime member of the Resistance, deportee to Mauthausen, member of the Committee for the History of the Second World War from 1945 to 1981, and a member of the Institut de France. In a poignant interview in 1986, he courageously acknowledged that in 1954 he had vouched for the existence of a gas chamber at Mauthausen where, it finally turns out, there never was one. [19]

The respect owed to the sufferings of all the victims of the Second World War, and, in particular, to the sufferings of the deportees, demands on the part of historians a return to the proven and time-honored methods of historical criticism.


Elie Wiesel passes for one of the most celebrated eyewitnesses to the alleged Holocaust. Yet in his supposedly autobiographical book Night, he makes no mention of gas chambers. He claims instead to have witnessed Jews being burned alive, a story now dismissed by all historians. Wiesel gives credence to the most absurd stories of other "eyewitnesses." He spreads fantastic tales of 10,000 persons sent to their deaths each day in Buchenwald.

When Elie Wiesel and his father, as Auschwitz prisoners, had the choice of either leaving with their retreating German "executioners," or remaining behind in the camp to await the Soviet "liberators," the two decided to leave with their German captors.

It is time, in the name of truth and out of respect for the genuine sufferings of the victims of the Second World War, that historians return to the proven methods of historical criticism, and that the testimony of the Holocaust "eyewitnesses" be subjected to rigorous scrutiny rather than unquestioning acceptance.

2. There is one single allusion, extremely vague and fleeting, on pages 78-79: Wiesel, who very much likes to have conversations with God, says to Him: "But these men here, whom You have betrayed, whom You have allowed to be tortured, butchered, gassed, burned, what do they do? They pray before you!" (Night, New York, Discus/Avon Books, 1969, p. 79). In his preface to that same book, François Mauriac mentioned "the gas chamber and the crematory" (p. 8). The four crucial pages of "testimony" by Elie Wiesel are reproduced in facsimile in: Pierre Guillaume, Droit et Histoire (La Vieille Taupe, 1986), pp. 147-150. In the German-language edition of Night (Die Nacht zu begraben, Elischa [Ullstein, 1962]), on 14 occasions the word "crematory" or "crematories" has been falsely given as "Gaskammer" ("gas chamber[s]"). In January of 1945, in anticipation of a Russian takeover, the Germans were evacuating Auschwitz. Elie Wiesel, a young teenager at the time, was hospitalized in Birkenau (the "extermination camp") after surgery on an infected foot. His doctor had recommended two weeks of rest and good food but, before his foot healed, the Russian takeover became imminent. Hospital patients were considered unfit for the long trip to the camps in Germany and Elie thus could have remained at Birkenau to await the Russians. Although his father had permission to stay with him as a hospital patient or orderly, father and son talked it over and decided to move out with the Germans. (See Night, p. 93. See also D. Calder, The Sunday Sun [Toronto, Canada], May 31, 1987, p. C4.)

  1. I suppose you also believe that men did not walk on the moon but instead on the desert in Arizona. Just because he did not personally see gas chambers, does not mean they did not exist. I have not personally seen men walk on the moon, but if I ignore the evidence that they did, I am the ignorant one. This shows just how ignorant the author of this website is.

    1. oh suuuuure we walked on the moon. Uh huh. and oswald killed JFK. Yep uh huh. Please - kill your family jewscum troll, then yourself. Thanks.

    2. I would like for the moron who claims gas chambers exist to point me to a witness who saw it and has an identity - real german camp where they teach jews skills inmate Paul Rassinier dedicated his life to finding one eyewitness and he never did...

    3. I would like for the idiot who believes in gas chambers to point me to one eyewitness with a verifiable identity who saw the "gassings" which were supposedly carried out in delousing chambers and deliberately decided to follow the soviet jewish propaganda of "gas chambers" although common sense would tell you this isn't true at all... apparently the USA was also gassing people in identical facilities yes? fucking idiot... german camp to teach jews skills inmate Paul Rassinier after dedicating his life in the search of one eyewitness concluded that all were liars after he never succeeded in locating ONE EYEWITNESS!!!

  2. ^I suppose the "geyser of blood" that the Wiesel talks about "really existed" too? LOL.

    The only "gas chambers" at any of the camps were DELOUSING chambers used to kill lice and other pests in order to prevent disease.

    Dachau is the perfect example. Immediately after the war, the U.S. Army produced a "documentary" film saying that inmates were "exterminated in gas chambers" at Dachau. But guess what? They later abandoned those claims. Now even proponents of the "official" Holocaust story admit that NO ONE was exterminated at Dachau, and there was NOT a "homicidal gas chamber" at Dachau.

    But there WAS a gas chamber at Dachau....a DELOUSING chamber used to kill lice/etc. To prevent lice was the reason inmates heads were shaved, by the way.

    You know how those who died at Dachau died? From a typhus outbreak near the end of the war, not any "extermination program." This is because the sanitary conditions inside Germany broke down due to the war and the Allied bombing in Germany.

    This is the same for all the camps. Those who died at the camps did so overwhelmingly from DISEASE, not murder or any "extermination program."

    Read/see about Dachau at this article:

  3. @ Lone Wolf

    It's amazing how there's such ignorant people on this earth like you. What about the evidence that leads to the conclusion that there were deadly gas chambers. Plus, if it was just a typhus outbreak, then how come none of the German officials at the camp died? And how can you explain how 6 million Jews died? They would never just all die from a typhus outbreak. How do you explain the ovens filled with ashes of human remains.

    Please Think Before You Hate!

    1. @ lone jew liar, burn yourself alive please.

    2. seems like the Nazis gave all the scumbag roach jews lots of LSD so they could tell their little "stories."

    3. I reckon it might be true numerous lodgers of concenotation camps perished of typhus,maybe because othersickness hunger and cold. I saw in the film documentary 'Bergen Belsena'British soldiers are served liqor by a German guard who argues. 'how the high morality rate was due to damage caused by allied nvasion blocking vital provisions of medical equipment,drugs etc.and foods'.I ask 'if so many perished,was it a trial to create space for burials'?

  4. id love to throw you into one of those gas chambers, then have you tell me they didnt exit you fucking faggot

  5. i honestly don't care about this idiot's arguments because you really can't deny at least the horrible conditions that these innocent people were subjected to. THAT alone is horrible enough to be deemed horrible in our society. So in conclusion, stop backing up that the holocaust was a lie with facts that really don't have concrete footing as to why it never happened.

  6. I don't understand how people can be so racist. Just because everyone didn't see the gas chambers, doesn't mean they're fake. How would you like it if some random people who you never did anything to, come into your home, force you out of it, shave all your hair- including your pubic hairs- gave you a tatto that you would forever be called by, and started murdering you, your friends, your family and anyone you've ever known, just because you didn't look a certain way or because you believed in a certain something? You would be full of hate! And if you survived- which I'm positive YOU wouldn't- you would want the world to hate as well. Mr. Elie doesn't want people to hate, but he wants people to understand. And to not forget those who died. Look how many people died. Why would a person, an entire religion make up that six million of their own died? Why? No one likes death, so what would be the point of lieing about such gruesome things? I have read Mr. Wiesel's book Night, and every single word is complete non-fiction. The fact that you can't accept that the time when Hitler was in control was a horrible time is just sad. And if you are part of this future, and there are more of horrid people like you, I'm terribly afraid of wha's to come in the near future.

    1. I know, this is a seriously belated reply but I couldn't resist.

      You speak of racism yet you are totally unaware of the Jewish Talmud, the most racist work of literature (if one could call it that) ever produced by the minds of men. They taught their children that non-Jews (goyim) were sub-human, that they were animals, created to serve them, the Jews. And you make a huge assumption that the Jews did nothing to have German soldiers come and remove them from their homes and place them into work camps.

      Did you know that the Jews declared war on Germany in March of 1933? Jews around the world united and boycotted all German made goods. Jewish fighters (Bolshevik Partisans) went on a rampage and killed innocent ethnic Germans in Poland (Danzig). They mutilated men, women, and little children. That is the reason Hitler "invaded" Poland (In reality Hitler wasn't invading Poland since Danzig was part of Germany. It was the atrocious Treaty of Versailles that led to the seizure of Poland from the Reich).

      Germany depended on its imports to feed one third of the German people. The Jewish boycott was an act of war and a real threat that could have led to millions of Germans starving to death (which is what eventually happened in the late stages of the war).

      So a little historical review; The Germans rounded up some (not all) Jews who had declared war on them. They were a danger to the Fatherland. The United States did it to the Japanese Americans without any evidence that Japanese Americans were a threat to America. Communist Jews had infiltrated Germany, murdered Germans, burned down the Reichstag and had economically devastated the German nation.

      So no, the Germans did not just start murdering people. That is a total lie. The great majority of Jewish prisoners were treated fairly and were made to work to support the war effort. Most who died did in fact die from typhus, this is a fact that even U.S. Army doctors confirmed. You can read their reports online. There is no evidence at all that millions of Jewish people were gassed to death by way of Hydrogen cyanide. The six million figure (as others have already explained to you) was a cabalistic number that Jewish Rabbis used as a symbol well before both world wars.

      There is no evidence at all to back up such a mad claim that six million Jews perished in WWII.

      Were some Jewish people murdered by the Germans? Yes, sure. And the Germans who murdered Jews were tried and then hung for murder. Guess what? Americans raped French women and bombed French towns to rubble but you don't read about that in the history books do you? American and British bombers murdered hundreds of thousands of innocent German civilians in Dresden and Hamburg (they killed more Germans in those fire bombings then they did when the dropped the two Atom Bombs on Japan).

      German was defamed and called the most racist nation on the planet yet it had the most diverse army in History. Even 150,00 Jews served under the swastika. American President Roosevelt wouldn't even look in Jesse Owen's direction yet Heir Hitler honored him by shaking his hand, something Owens himself has attested to (and even carried around a photo of the meeting in his wallet!).

      What is sad Mr."Anonymous" is that you, along with millions and millions of others, have been brainwashed into believing that Germans are evil monsters. Hundreds of movies have been made to reinforce this false version of history and millions of Germans over many decades have been paying the price for something neither they or their fathers did.

      Germany was only ever guilty of defending itself. Along the way they made some serious mistakes buy those mistakes are hardly equal to allied atrocities.

  7. It must be so desperate for someone who survived the Holocaust and witnessed the death of his family to don't be believed. I would be dying of madness!! COME ON!!! DON'T BE SO IGNORANT!!! LET HUMANITY LEARN FROM PAST MISTAKES!!!

  8. True, quintessential irony exists when the blogger uses a quote from Orwell's 1984 in his/her attempt to rewrite the past. Here is another quote from the same author:

    "All political thinking for years past has been vitiated in the same way. People can foresee the future only when it coincides with their own wishes, and the most grossly obvious facts can be ignored when they are unwelcome."

  9. you know what i say fuck the police also everyone stop arguing i will assume you all live in the free world so youre freeeeee to have you own opinion about anything from the moon landing to american idol its your opinion

  10. Germans did not get Typhus because they were healthier than the prisoners.
    Still, a lot of Germans starve. Also Jews would flee camps with the Germans because they did not want to be captured by Russians.


    Are you Jewish? You know what amazes me, is how the more proof that comes out on the non existent Gas Chambers, and that less Jews actually died.. the more Christian Zealots cry? Why do people get upset that the "Holo-fart" did not happen? you would think people would embrace the fact, that they were not mass murdered.. but instead its the subconscious opposite, wishing that it did happen. Interesting psychological insight you are

  11. Poor old Elie The Weisel is exposed by his own lie. He says that the pit that he was marching towards had gigantic flames emanating from it. But surely the heat from such a fire would prevent anyone from approaching to within 10 or 15 metres. But yet he says that he was just two steps away from jumping in before the guard ordered him and his father to turn left into a barracks.

    I've read a lot of fairy stories about massive open funeral pyres, and bodies being thrown in as the cremation process is underway. But how is this possible while the fire rages. No one could get close enough to add more bodies or wood fuel without being driven back by the tremendous heat being generated by the conflagration.

    Some witnesses have even claimed that instead of adding more wood to the fire, they used buckets to collect the molten fat from the burning bodies which lay at the foot of the pit or pyre, and then poured it back on top as additional fuel! This is ridiculous - totally impossible.

  12. u need only study the bolshevics to see the madness of these people



  14. Today, September 20,2014 I will celebrate the death of the lying rat-faced scum.
