Oskar Klausenstock's amazing Hollywood-esque fairytale - numerous miracles, treked hundreds of miles on foot to escape Nazis

Oskar Klausenstock served as a doctor in the U.S. Army from 1955-57.

Summary of Oskar's tale:

Oskar survived many close calls. Every four or five days, he had an experience where he thought he was going to die, but he miraculously survived.

The closest was when a Nazi soldier was counting off every 10th Jew to kill, and he was mistakenly counted as No. 10, but the Nazi guard caught the mistake, and Oskar was actually only number 9.

Another time he escaped and travelled hundreds of miles eastward through the Polish forests, crossed a heavily guarded river, and was rescued by Soviet soldiers.

He was once strafed by British Spitfire planes along with other laborers at an airfield.

Another time he escaped from the Germans by hiding in a hay bale.

Then another time he snuck into a group of American POWs being marched to a camp, falling behind the last guy in the line. When he tapped the man on the shoulder, he responded 'Holy sh--!,' The Americans gave him a coat to blend in.

After the war was over, Klausenstock served as an interpreter for the occupying U.S. Army, he even spent some time working for Gen. George Patton.

Klausenstock was the only one of 38 family members to survive the Holycaust.

Joe Diamond's tale - Escaped being deathed in Auschwitz gas chamber by jumping out 20-ft high window and hiding in latrine

Joe was taken on a cattle car to Auschwitz with his family at 15 years old.

He says the German troops were "monsters", and that one soldier picked up a new-born baby off a train and "kicked it into a field."

Diamond was greeted by Dr. Mengele when arriving at Auschwitz. His mother and younger brother were sent to the gas chambers within 3 hours of arrival.

Joe says upon arrival at Auschwitz men who looked like workers went to the right to be used for labor, while women with small children, or that were pregnant, along with senior citizens, and handicapped people, were sent to the left to be gassed.

Joe was put to work hauling bricks and mortar for the construction of new gas chambers. After a few weeks, Joe got weak and was selected to be deathed in the gas chambers, but he escaped by jumping from a 20-foot high window, and then hiding in a latrine filled with human waste for a night.

Eventually Joe was put on a Death March, where he saw a camp decorated with skeletons outside the gates.

He says in the final days of the war, the German soldiers used the prisoners for target practice.

While in Auschwitz, Joe notes that Red Cross officials visited the barracks to take information from the prisoners. Why on earth did the evil Germans allow the Red Cross inside the camp, and let them talk to the inmates? Weren't they worried they would discover their master plan to kill every jew in the world? And why didn't the Red Cross report on any mass murders of inmates at Auschwitz? Chalk it up as another miracle of the Holocaust.

Joe says "gas on the stock market was going up because they were using so much, due to it's effectiveness in killing" and that the German people are all "murderers as guilty as Hitler because they supported and cheered Hitler."

After WWII, Joe came to America and was drafted into the Army during the Korean War. He was stationed in Germany, and was excited to "get even" with the Germans. On a three-day leave, Diamond walked the streets with a bayonet and gun, wondering how someone like him would even go about getting even, but he says he didn't kill anyone because “I’m not a killer”, rather “they [the Germans] were the killers.”

Joe says he tells his story to "fight intolerance."

Holyhoax survivor extraordinaire Thomas Blatt - At Sobibor "250,000 people roasted on huge pyres made from iron rails, and fueled with diesel oil"

"Vhat part of my story don't you believe?" [2]

Thomas Blatt is one of the most famous and most fanatical Holocaust™ propagandists.

He claims he helped lead the famous 1943 revolt at the "extermination camp" of Sobibor which led to 300 prisoners escaping.

Kosher Holocaust™ 'historians' claim that 250,000 jews were murdered at Sobibor.

Blatt was born in Poland in 1927. At the age of 15, he says the Nazis took him and his family to Sobibor.

According to Thomas, within an hour of arrival at the camp his parents and ten-year-old brother were shoved at bayonet point to the gas chambers.

Thomas survived the gas chambers on the whim of the SS commandant, who said to him, "Come, little one", as a selection was made of so-called "work Jews." Thomas was selected to be a shoeshine boy.

He says the Nazis later put him to work as a "fireman", burning the clothes and personal effects of those gassed upon arrival at the camp.

Thomas says the bodies of those murdered at the camp in the gas chambers were then burned on "roasts" -- huge outdoor fires on pyres of iron rails, fueled with diesel oil.

After six months at the camp, Blatt eventually escaped after an inmate uprising at Sobibor, surviving in the forest.

While hiding out in the forest, he claims he survived being shot in the face, and still has a bullet lodged in his jaw.

Blatt has written two books: "Sobibor: The Forgotten Revolt" and "From the Ashes of Sobibor."

Thomas says he tells his story so that "no one forgets the horrors of the Holocaust™."

He tirelessly travels all over the world on the Holocaust™ speaking tour, usually telling his tale to young school children.

Thomas Blatt holds up a newspaper showing himself along with Karl August Frenzel, a member of the Nazi S.S. staff at the Sobibor extermination camp, where Blatt was part of a revolt that led to his escape from the camp in 1943. [1]

Jafa Wallach's tale - Hid from the Germans with 3 other people in a 6x4 ft hole for 22 months

Jafa Wallach with her daughter Rena Bernstein. She is holding her memoir, "Bitter Freedom"

Jafa claims she, her husband Natan and his two brothers hid from the Germans in a 6- by 4-foot hole beneath basement floor boards in a mechanic’s workshop in southwestern Poland...for 22 months, in a space too small for them to stand or walk.

Apparently they never left the hole because she says "its was some time before she could walk again."

This story sounds familiar. Oh, right, Lola Rein Kaufman claims she hid from the Nazis for nine months in a 6x4 ft hole.

Testimony from the Eichmann Trial by Leon Wells - Dug up and burned bodies, used bone-grinding machine, ate lunch on top of corpses

The USHMM claims this is a bone-crushing machine used to grind human bones in order to obtain fertilizer in the Janowska concentration camp. Poland, August 1944.[1]

Dr. Wells says he worked in the "Death Brigade", the Sonderkommando 1005, at the Janowska camp in Poland.

The job of the Death Brigade was to dig up bodies of people murdered by the Nazis and erase all traces of the evidence.

They piled the bodies in heaps like a pyramid, sometimes up to 2,000 bodies.

The Nazi in charge of the Death Brigade would lead the jews to work in the morning dressed in a devil's costume, with a hook on his hand. He would force Jews to make up songs as they marched to work. He also had an orchestra made up of Jewish prisoners march alongside the Jews, and accompany them as they sang their songs.

After burning the bodies, they put the bones into a bone-grinding machine, and then the "Ash Commander" would have them toss the ashes into the air to make the ashes disappear.

While at work, they ate lunch on top of the corpses.

Leon died Dec 19, 2009 at the age of 84. He was was the only member of his whole family of 76 people, including all cousins, uncles, his parents and six siblings to survive the Holocaust.

A personal friend of Elie Wiesel, his fairytales are "universally considered classics of Holocaust literature."

The Trial of Adolf Eichmann
Session 23

(Part 2 of 5)

(2 May 1961)


Q. Now you were back at the Janowska camp?

A. We marched in, to music played by a big orchestra.

Q. What orchestra?

A. We had, in the concentration camp - also in the Julag we had an orchestra playing every morning and every evening, when we went out to work and when we returned from work and also when people were taken to be shot - the orchestra used to have to play. It was made up of Jewish prisoners in the concentration camp and the orchestra at Janowska once amounted to sixty people, sixty musicians.

Q. Who ordered this orchestra to be organized and to play?

A. I believe that in general, it was something more than an order given by a single man because it happened that also in the Julag - also afterwards in the Death Brigade, in the concentration camp where there were different leaders, in every place an orchestra was formed, so I don't believe it was a specific idea...due to a Wilhaus or some other, when they came and started at this time.

Q. Dr. Wells, before we go on, tell me - now you had seen all your family dead, you were now back in the Janowska camp - how could you stand it? How could you survive it? What gave you the will to go on?

A. It was the will of responsibility, that somebody had to remain to tell the world that it was the idea of the Nazis to kill all the Jews - so we had a responsibility somehow to withstand this idea and to be alive. There was not one of us, as will be shown later, that had any interest whether it was he or the second man; it was always: who will be the best to survive and the others will go to death - so as to feel that one man or at least somebody would survive out of all of this.

Q. Now on 15 June 1943, forty people were taken out of the Janowska camp allegedly for road-building. You were among them?

A. Yes.

Q. But this was not for road-building. It was the Death Brigade. The Sonderkommando 1005 (Special Commando).

A. Yes.

Q. What was the job of this Sonderkommando?

A. The job was to remove at any time traces of the murdering of the people by the Nazis.

Q. What did you have to do?

A. We used to uncover all the graves where there were people who had been killed during the past three years, take out the bodies, pile them up in tiers and burn these bodies; grind the bones, take out all the valuables in the ashes such as gold teeth, rings and so on - separate them. After grinding the bones we used to throw the ashes up in the air so that they would disappear, replace the earth on the graves and plant seeds, so that nobody could recognize that there ever was a grave there.

In addition to this they used to bring new people - new victims; they were shot there - undressed beforehand - we had to burn these new bodies too.

Q. There was a Brandmeister - (Chief Fireman) what did he do?

A. The Brigade was divided into different corps. There were, in the beginning one, afterwards two Brandmeister, there were two Zaehler (Counters), there was an ash commander, there were carriers and there were pullers, and also there were cleaners. The Brandmeister was in charge of the fire. When they put up a heap like a pyramid, sometimes up to 2,000 bodies - one had to watch out so that the fire didn't go out. He was in charge of this fire, while the Zaehler was keeping a count of how many bodies were burnt to check out with the original list - how many were killed, because sometimes if we uncovered a grave we were looking sometimes for hours for one body or more because it was buried on the side; there was an exact list of how many people were killed. So he kept the number of bodies burned and taken out of each grave.

Attorney General: And in the evening a report had to be given to the Untersturmfuehrer - is that so?

Witness Wells: Yes, to Untersturmfuehrer Scherlack and, in his absence, it was Hauptscharfuehrer Rauch.

Q. How was the form of the report?

A. The report was given over with the pencil and paper - because we couldn't have with us anything left - and it was forbidden for anybody to tell the number, and he had himself to forget. So that if the Hauptscharfuehrer or Untersturmfuehrer next morning asked: "How many were burned yesterday?", he couldn't any more tell. He had to say: "I forgot."

Q. Tell me, how many hours did you work - burning corpses like that? How many hours a day?

A. Some days - eight; some days - ten hours; but normally it was an eight-hour day because here, all the Schutzpolizei and the SD men had to be on the job with us all day. When they finished work - we could go back.

Q. Were you fed while you were working? Did you get any food?

A. We got a lot of food.

Q. Where did you eat? Amongst the corpses?

A. On the corpses.

Q. On the corpses themselves?

A. Yes, on the corpses.

Q. Now 21st May, do you remember? This year...gravestones from the Jewish cemetery arrived - the Jewish cemetery of Lvov. Do you remember?

A. It wasn't 21st May.

Q. 21st June. I'm sorry - 21st June, 1943.

A. There arrived from the gravestones - we weighed them out and made a place for the Brandstelle (Burning Site) and the Aschkolonne (Ash Column).

Q. What was the work of - we'll leave that. You tell me that you collected the gold and so on - can you give the Court an idea how much it came to a day?

A. Some days it came up to 8-10 kilos gold, when it was only from bodies. But when they used to bring new people - like if they brought 2,000 or 1,500 people - the amount of gold and rings and also money would be much more. But on some days, only from corpses, we used to get about eight to ten kilos a day.

Q. How was the murder of those who arrived alive at the fires carried out?

A. It depends. For example - at one time there arrived only two or three hundred people, or at other times there arrived 1,500 or 2,000 or 2,500 people. When, for example, arrived 24 of the girls from the concentration camp - on 26 August 1943 - after the night that they spent with the SS people - they were picked from the concentration camp. When they were offered to stay with the SS people - some of the girls started to run away and were taken this time right away to the fires. This time they were standing on the trucks; the trucks backed up to the fires and they were standing at the edge of the truck. Every one of them got a shot in the neck and was then kicked so that she fell straight into the fire.

Q. Who shot them?

A. One of the SS people always - whoever was available that morning.

When on Tuesday, 29 June, 275 people came in they were shot by setting them up in 25 with the machine gun. After the first 25 stepped in, the next 25 stepped in. With these 275 that were shot on 29 June 1943, on Tuesday, it explained one thing that we found before some graves where it didn't seem to us that the people were shot...but with their tongues out and open mouths it was more like suffocated people and it told us how these people were buried alive. Because when we came out to burn the bodies we found that some of them were only slightly injured due to the machine gun taking 25 people in one some of them were slightly injured in the arm and they fell down and above them the other people. So it happened at this night when we picked up a body and put it in the fire, at the last moments these bodies started to scream - yell aloud because it was still alive.

Q. So you were provided with hooks by the commanders of the Commando?

A. Yes.

Q. And with gasoline and oil?

A. Gasoline and oil and wood, piles of wood, and a grinding machine.

Q. And you had to do your job very carefully and very efficiently so that nothing should be left of the bodies?

A. Yes, it was necessary to look on the ground for any hair, a piece of bone that was left and even a piece of paper, everything was burned.

Presiding Judge: What was a grinding machine?

Witness Wells: It was like a cement machine that was running and in it big heavy steel balls and the bones were put in from one way and when these balls were...

Presiding Judge: The bones or the bodies?

Witness Wells: So the steel balls were hitting bones. First the fire burned the bones and some of the parts of the body were burned to ashes. These went to the ash column and the ash column sifted through what was remaining in the sieves. The sieves were like sieves we use for flour, to sift flour. And what was left in these sieves was put into the grinding machine and the grinding machine ground them and again got out what was left over, and gold or platinum was in it. These were picked up and afterwards went to the grinding machine. It was a year and a month later when I uncovered also the grave where they looked for the 182nd body which had to be there.

Attorney General: May I ask the Court for the witness' book. I should like him to identify a number of pictures.

Presiding Judge: I didn't understand your last reply, Dr. Wells.

Witness Wells: It was in July, at the end of June 1943 I dug up the grave where I had to be buried the year ahead when I escaped among the 182 people.

Presiding Judge: I see.

Witness Wells: And they were looking that they were missing a body, and we looked about two days for a missing body.

Attorney General: Who had lists of the bodies?

Witness Wells: I don't know who had the list, but it always came. They often, one of the SD people will uncover, it will be exactly the location of the grave...and we will even go and it will be said from this corner you will have to measure six steps, right, south, east and so on. We measured and here we started to make the grave. It was also written how many people had to be in this grave.

Q. And they knew how many bodies were there exactly?

A. Exactly, because we were looking to fit this number with the Zaehler.

Q. There are some illustrations in your book, some pictures taken of the brigade during its work - how did you get those pictures?

A. These pictures weren't supplied by me - they were supplied by the Historical Commission in Poland...

Presiding Judge: But that's how it looked - just look at it.

Witness Wells: That's how it looked.

Presiding Judge: Do you know how the photographs got to this Commission?

Witness Wells: No.

Attorney General: Now, when you went to work in the morning and came back in the evening, you say you had to sing?

Witness Wells: We had to make up songs and sing while we were going to work, and also the Brandmeister would march in front, he was clothed like a devil; he had a special uniform with the hook in his hand and we had to march after him and sing. Afterwards we were also joined by an orchestra which would play as we sang and accompany us on our march to work.

Q. Sometimes people in the brigade identified bodies of their relatives?

A. Yes. Even more - I remember the name Mr. Brill - he was in his late forties at this time...He was taken to the concentration camp, to the Death Brigade; and he was brought together with his two young daughters, one of sixteen and one of eighteen. They were shot and he was put into the Death Brigade, and an hour later, while they were still warm, he himself had to put them in the fire.

Q. Let us continue. Do you remember Tuesday, 29th June?

A. Yes, I mentioned those 275...

Q. Now tell me - how long did a man in such a brigade usually live?

A. Normally, by order... we were told that after eight to ten days we had to be exchanged - we would be shot and another group would come; so when visiting SD men came over to the Death Brigade and asked us how long we had been there it was forbidden for us to say that we had been longer than six, eight, up to eight or ten days - no longer...

Rachel Levy's tale - escaped the Auschwitz gas chamber by hiding behind people carrying soup

Rachel Levy

Rachel Levy is from an Hungarian Orthodox jewish family.

In 1942, she says that she, her mother, father, two brothers, and two sisters were taken by the Nazis to Auschwitz.

Rachel claims that immediately upon arrival at Auschwitz, her mother, sisters and younger brother were taken straight to the gas chambers.

Then one day Mengele payed her a visit and picked her for the gas chamber. But the gas chamber was right next to the kitchen, so Rachel managed to sneak behind some people carrying soup and escape.

The Germans then apparantly just forgot to gas Rachel. She stayed at the camp until it was liberated in 1945.

It was a miracle.

Rachel did not speak of her tale for 50 years. Now she tells her story to youngsters in England.

"Leap into Darkness: Seven Years on the Run in Wartime Europe" by Leo Bretholz; Escaped Nazis 7 times, all over Europe, swam rivers, climbed Alps, etc

Barnes & Noble Review:


A harrowing, action-packed account of the author's series of audacious escapes from the Nazis' Final Solution--"riveting...a fascinating and moving piece of history" (Library Journal).

Young Leo Bretholz survived the Holocaust by escaping from the Nazis (and others) not once, but seven times during his almost seven-year ordeal crisscrossing war-torn Europe. He leaped from trains, outran police, and hid in attics, cellars, anywhere that offered a few more seconds of safety. First he swam the River Sauer at the German-Belgian border. Later he climbed the Alps on feet so battered they froze to his socks--only to be turned back at the Swiss border. He crawled out from under the barbed wire of a French holding camp, and hid in a village in the Pyrenees while gendarmes searched it. And in the dark hours of one November morning, he escaped from a train bound for Auschwitz.

Leap into Darkness is the sweeping memoir of one Jewish boy's survival, and of the family and the world he left behind.

Publishers Weekly

Bretholz was 17 when, in 1938, the Germans took over his native Austria. His mother, more realistic than other relatives, saw disaster and insisted that he escape, which is what he did for the next seven years, traveling not only through Germany and Luxembourg but to Belgium, France and, briefly, Switzerland, to jails and numerous internment camps. Bretholz relied often on his youthful agility and daring to save himself from much worse; he escaped from a train headed for Auschwitz in 1942. He spent the last years of the war working for the French Resistance, emigrating in 1947 to Baltimore, where he ran a bookstore (frequented by coauthor and Baltimore Sun columnist Olesker). Whether telling of running or hiding, every paragraph in his memoir is harrowing. In one wrenching story, he tells of a young female friend who is menaced by a gendarme while he is forced to stay hidden, "crouched on the floor, helpless, emasculated, sickened." Bretholz is also smartly observant of the Austrians ("`First victims,' they will call themselves when the world loses its memory."); opportunistic Swiss; and the French, so many of whom claimed to be Resistance. In the midst of many improbable escapes, there is also a sense of almost exhilarating determination--"I was now a miraculous athlete, a professional escape artist, a young man in perpetual flight. I was indomitable. Also, I was too terrified not to run for my life." For a man who assumed many false identities, the supreme irony came when Bretholz learned his true identity just six years ago--an event that provides a fitting climax to this inspiring and moving book. 40 b&w illustrations. (Nov.)


Leo Bretholz arrived in the United States in 1947 and settled in Baltimore, where he worked in the textile business and then as a bookseller for many years. He continues to lecture extensively about his Holocaust memories. Michael Olesker is a columnist for the Baltimore Sun and a commentator on Baltimore's CBS affiliate, WJZ-TV.

Erna Rubinstein's Auschwitz tale - Water, not gas, came out of showers - Escaped death from "an ocean of fire as fare as the eye could see"

Yehuda's summary:

Also with a sad tale is Erna Rubinstein.

Erna was taken to the Auschwitz Death Camp on a Death Train. The Death Train had no air.

Then Erna was taken to the Gas Chambers. But only water came out of the gas nozzles!

Then Erna was taken to the Death Flame pits. The death Flame Pits were an ocean of fire. Fire as far as the eye could see, in all directions. The evil nazis marched the Jews toward the Death Flame Pits. The Jews were right at the barbed wire gates. But no! The evil nazis sent them down a different road, and the Jews were spared.

Excerpted from "The Survivor in Us All - A Memoir of the Holocaust" by Erna F. Rubinstein

"Deprived of all strength and the desire to live, confused and exhausted, we were pushed into another room. Before we had a chance to notice exactly what was happening, men with shavers began to shave our hair. One shaved our heads, another our underarms, and a young boy in a pair of shorts shaved the hair of our genitals. The men were experienced; it seemed to take no time at all. Oblivious to everything, we moved like robots from one shaver to another, yielding without a word. Nothing mattered any more. The long room was full of hair, some blond, some brown, some black. None was gray as there were no older women left among us. Then we were rushed into another room with showers.

After all we had gone through during the last few days, it seemed that it was the gas that would now finish us. We looked at each other, realizing what our destiny was to be at last. No one uttered a word; we were resigned and ready.

Suddenly the showers were opened, and freezing water rinsed our naked bodies. We were alive.


It was now morning. Our discolored bodies were covered in the most ridiculous garments, and with the queer wodden shoes on our feet, we were quite a sight. We walked in fives.

`How funny you look.' Pola started laughing.

`And you, look at yourself!' Anna snapped.

`Stop it, girls. We all look funny, but we're alive, aren't we?' Mania

`Who cares? We might as well be dead,' Pola answered.

`Stop it, will you?' I said sadly; for we had just turned off the muddy road and were marching in a different direction. All we could see, at a distance clearly visible against the morning sky that was in front of us, was fire. An ocean of fire. As far as the eye could see there was fire, and no other way to go. The hard morning light revealed a landscape dark with people and illuminated each vacant face.

`What a beautiful sight,' Pola said acidly.

Behind us, a woman was holding her daughter's hand, and I heard her say: `After all we have been through ... after this monstrous shaving ... we have to go into the fire now?'

Her sixteen-year-old daughter replied calmly: `At least we shall be warm, mother.'

That was, in fact, how we all felt by now -- a moving wall of broken-down forms driven by cold and despair.

Despite all this, to me the fire also meant something else -- a tender reconciliation with my mother. In each little flame, I saw her kisses, her love, gliding toward me then heavenward. I heard her last words: `My angels, my dolls, may God help you.' We knew, now, that she must have been taken into the gas chamber during the night, and it was her body along with thousands of others, young and old, beautiful and ugly, that was burning in this inferno.

And somewhere, too, through the searing flames, I could see the last worry on my dearest friend's face, when she said to me: `Take care of my son.' She, also, must have found her tragic end last night. I thought of how the two women had died together.

We were now just a few steps away from the barbed wire separating us from the fire. At any given moment, the gate would open and we would be led into the fire where violent red flames were sending blue flecks into the dark, smoke-filled sky. It appeared that the Germans were playing tricks on us. During the last few days we had died an innumerable number of deaths; at first, the suffocation on the train, then the segregations, afterward, the showers, and now a fire. Most of us had experienced something akin to dying each time, and it was as if part of us had died each time. Yet this wasn't going to be the last time either. As soon as we were almost so close that there seemed to be no turning from it, we were led onto a different road and away from the fire. Nevertheless, the Germans had accomplished their goal, for in that fire, a great part of our soul had been obliterated -- the part of us that knew how to love, respect, and hope. Here was where our parents, our brothers and sisters, and most of our friends had died. We knew now what the gas chambers of Auschwitz had meant. As we moved away from the fire, the smell of burning corpes stayed with us all through our march -- as it would stay all through our stay in Auschwitz. Whether the smell was of freshly burned bodies or carried over from previous burnings, it was always there, and we could never help but be aware of it."

Edie Eger's tale - danced for Mengele, weighed 40 lbs at 17 yrs-old when liberated

As Edie danced for Dr. Mengele, she saw the black smoke from the gas chamber (not the crematorium), which likely contained the ashes of her mother.

Whenever Edie and her sister Magda showered at Auschwitz, "they never knew if they would receive water or gas."

Eventually an emaciated and thought-dead Edie was thrown in a mass grave in the woods behind a camp, but an American GI spotted her hand move and she was pulled from the pile of corpses. A miracle!

Elane Geller's tale - Survived on 400 calories a day, ate toothpaste and drank urine, had rats in hair, fertilizer made from jew bones

Elane Geller speaks to college students

Elane Geller is one of the youngest living Holocaust survivors, having lived in the camps as a child.

She spent the most time in, and was liberated from, Bergen-Belsen.

Elane says the average food intake of the prisoners was 400 calories per day, but that she didn't receive any food at all because she was not a "worker". Therefore, she had to share food with her aunt.

Her 16 year old sister was sent to Auschwitz where, as Elane says, she "fell victim to the oven."

Gellar says that the German economy was failing, but with the opening of the new death camps, it helped "save" the German economy. She says the Germans made fertilizer out of the bones and pillows out of human hair.

Elane says that people near the death camps, such as Auschwitz, could see smoke billowing out similar to that when the twin towers collapsed on 9/11.

While at the camp, she says she had typhoid, typhus, and tuberculosis. But she never went to the camp infirmary. Geller says, “I had lice and rats in my hair. I stole, I ate toothpaste, I drank urine. I did, I did whatever was necessary to fill my belly and stay alive.”

Simon Rozenkier's Shoah tale - "Mengele cut the hump off a hunchback, Nazis sterilized Jews and Gypsies with X-rays to the genitalia"

Simon Rozenkier

Simon claims he was sterilized himself at Auschwitz from repeatedly being injected with chemicals that he was told were vitamin supplements.

The Nazis told him "These shots will give you muscles to work. Do you understand that, you redheaded dog?"

He said the sterilization shots "caused his genitalia to swell and bleed and caused wrenching pain for days."

Before being taken to a concentration camp, Simon escaped the ghetto in his native Poland and slept in a cemetery next to an aunt's grave for several months.

At Auschwitz, Simon says he was spared from the gas chamber "because the Nazi doctors thought he had unusual genes" and "were trying to figure out why this Jew got red hair."

Of Mengele, he says "sometimes he gave people a piece of chocolate, and the next minute he shoots them in the head."

Simon says he personally saw a hunchback who's hump had been cut off by Dr. Mengele, and that Mengele threw a man into a bath of ice and let him freeze to death. 

He also says he saw Nazi doctors administer X-rays to the genitalia of Gypsies in order to prevent them from reproducing. 

Rozenkier claims he lost his mother, father, four sisters, and a brother in the Holocaust.

NY Times reports in 1906 that Russia's "6,000,00 jews" facing a final "solution" of "systematic and murderous extermination"


- From the March 25, 1906 edition of The New York Times...archived here. Full article in PDF here.

Relevant portion of article:

Dr. Paul Nathan's View of Russian Massacre

STARTLING reports of the condition and future of Russia's 6,000,000 Jews were made on March 12 in Berlin to the annual meeting of the Central Jewish Relief League of Germany by Dr. Paul Nathan, a well-known Berlin publicist, who has returned from an extensive trip through Russia as the special emissary of Jewish philanthropists in England, America, and Germany, to arrange for distribution of the relief fund of $1,500,000 raised after the massacres last Autumn.

Dr. Nathan paints a horrifying picture of the plight and prospects of his coreligionists, and forecasts at any hour renewed massacres exceeding in extent and terror all that have gone before. He left St. Petersburg with the firm conviction that the Russian Government's studied policy for the "solution" of the Jewish question is systematic and murderous extermination.

Dr. Nathan read to the meeting a circular addressed to the garrison of Odessa, calling upon the soldiers to "rise and crush the traitors who are plotting to upset the holy Government of the Czar and substitute for it a Jewish empire."

He concluded with an appeal to the Jewish money powers of the world to arrest Russia's career as a borrower. The financiers of the world should call a halt to Russia, not only for humanitarian reasons, but for practical reasons. Russia's bankruptcy is an established fact, he added."

And why was Russia "persecuting" the jews in 1906 you might wonder? Well, the article cites the "paranoid", "antisemitic" belief by the Russian authorities of a jewish plot/conspiracy to overthrow the government of the Russian Czar and establish a "jewish empire". Hmmmmm. Well look what happened in 1917. Turns out this belief wasn't so "crazy" after all.

Furthermore, the article notes that the reporter to the Central Jewish Relief League of Germany made "an appeal to the Jewish money powers of the world to arrest Russia's career as a borrower." The "Jewish money powers of the world" have sufficient power to wage war on a nation by preventing it from being able to borrow money? And yet we're told it's just another "anti-semitic canard" that the jews dominate and control the world financial/banking industy. Interesting.

Add this to the other fabricated "holocausts of 6,000,000 jews", including:

- The "holocaust" of "6 million" jews that "occurred" in Romania, Poland and Ukraine in 1919 at end of WWI

- The "6 million jews who faced extermination by massacre" in Russia in 1921

- And, of course, THE Holocaust™ of exactly 6,000,000 jews during WWII in Germany and Poland.
