Mister Barister: The problem is so many books about the Holocaust have a similar issue as night. Unless each author...
“Never shall I forget that first night in camp, which has turned my life into one long night, ... Never shall I forget that smoke. Never shall I forget the little faces of the children, whose bodies I saw turned into wreaths of smoke beneath a silent blue sky.” Elie Wiesel, Night (original edition)
“Not far from us, flames, huge flames, were rising from a ditch. Something was being burned there. A truck drew close and unloaded its hold: small children. Babies! Yes, I did see this, with my own eyes ... children thrown into the flames.” Elie Wiesel, Night, p. 32
“The thousands of people who died daily in Auschwitz and Birkenau, in the crematoria, no longer troubled me.” Elie Wiesel, Night, p. 62
“Dr. Mengele was holding a list: our numbers. [...] I had but one thought: not to have my number taken down and not to show my left arm.” Elie Wiesel, Night, p. 72
Primo Levi, on page 27 of his highly-quoted book Survival in Auschwitz, writes that every prisoner had to have a tattoo. “It seems that this is the real, true initiation: only by showing one's number can one get bread and soup.” Without a tattoo, how did Wiesel survive?
Observation by a Jewish sociologist/camp survivor:
“...most of the memoirs and reports [of 'Holocaust survivors'] are full of preposterous verbosity, graphomanic exaggeration, dramatic effects, overestimated self-inflation, dilettante philosophizing, would-be lyricism, unchecked rumors, bias, partisan attacks...” —Samuel Gringauz, "Jewish Social Studies" (New York), January 1950, Vol. 12, p. 65.
Theater J (for Jewish) "caved" to the Nobel laureate when he FedExed a letter to the playwright that his lawyers would make sure her play, Imagining Madoff, featuring Bernie Madoff, Elie Wiesel and a secretary, never reached the stage. According to the Washington Post, Wiesel used the words "obscene" and "defamatory" and added, "Nothing of me is in your script!" The story, written by Ted Scheinman and Jonathan L. Fischer, is here.
Childhood home of biggest con-man in holocaust history becomes “education center” for hoax-a-cost lies
Museum to open May 18 in the Romanian town of Sighet
Above: Wiesel "childhood home" in Sighet, Romania in 2007 after remodeling. Note identifying plaque attached at right corner.
Same building as it appeared in 1965 before Wiesel's great fame. "Night" was published in 1960 but didn't start to sell until the 1990's when the US media establishment began to promote it and schools bought it.
The “learning center” will be dedicated to the alleged 13,000 local holocaust victims who will have been receiving monthly checks from the Federal Republic of Germany for the past 65 years (either they or their relatives).
This rip-off “education center” is sponsored by the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, the Romanian Jewish Federation* and Limmud FSU, plus the Government of Romania and the City of Sighet (it’s good for tourism). Interesting that the Conference on JMClaims can spend the money it gets from Germany on projects like this, but it can … on the basis that it somehow helps survivors. Indeed, it helps them to keep up their fiction. *I can’t find an organization of this name.
Everything is being done to establish physical memorials to Elie Wiesel in as many locations around the world as can be conjured up, in consideration of his advanced age (85) and inevitablility that his death could come at any time. As usual, though, the Jewish interests behind the “Elie Wiesel Legend” seek to use as much Goyim money as possible to cover the costs. Wiesel himself has been doing that exact thing during his entire career as a professional victim and survivor.
In January 2011, I featured a Letter of the Week from Hailey S. In November the same year I featured two more, from Shelby and Sarah. Now I have received three more complaints about this site from (another?) Hailey, a Katie and a Lauren — right in a row. Thank you ladies!
But it’s an odd thing — the latest three were all sent from the same computer. And with an email address that ends in the same edu., which I won’t reveal. I’m not even sure it’s legitimate … that is, a real school. Could these young ladies be friends conspiring together in writing their comments? Could they even be the same person using different names and slightly different email addresses?
The content and point of view is similar, but written in different ways. You will find that “belief” and “believing” are the major basis for, well, believing the “holocaust.” These comments are also similar to the earlier ones I published from Hailey S, Shelby and Sarah, although better written and thought-out. So I could reply to them all together, but since they are written to three different blog articles they appear on different pages. This is why I decided to reply to them here, under the title of “More Letters of the Week.”
I find the trivialization of the Holocaust extremely disgusting. It maybe that some don’t believe that Elie Wiesel was an actual part of the Holocaust, but that does not mean anyone has the right to make fun of or make light of a horrific historical event. An event that almost entirely wiped out an entire group of people. There is an amount of dignity that must be maintained when dealing with this horrific time in history.
I already replied to Hailey on that page, so I’ll just say here that she’s free to express her feelings but I hope she understands that that is all she’s doing. Hailey has been indoctrinated into believing that “Holocaust survivors” are telling the truth about their “horrific” suffering and that “an entire group of people [by which she means Jewish people] were almost entirely wiped out.” Honest research has shown otherwise, but Hailey prefers to ignore this research.
I think that there could be a logical explanation to explain the holes in Elie’s story. I cannot bring myself to believe that someone would fictionalize a story on the holocaust and its terrible events. When someone under goes a traumatic event they will most likely not be able to remember every detail perfectly therefore he may have been confused on the dates and times. Elie has also grown older in age which also may make it difficult for him to remember. His book Night, is very detailed and descriptive which makes it difficult to believe that he could make those events up. This blog also states that Elie has not been asked to explain his discrepancies in his “tale”. Could it possibly be because there is no solid proof to question his story? And if he wasn’t actually a survivor than his book is still an incredible account of a Jewish person in the Holocaust and is still educational and provides people with an insight to the terrible things that happened.
Poor logic here. Katie says, “I cannot bring myself to believe …” — she is also putting her belief first. How many times can we repeat that reality is not about belief. It’s about facts and evidence. Belief belongs in religion — in this case the religion they have all been brought up in: Holocaustism.
Katie brings up belief a second time, saying in essence that after reading Night, she finds it “difficult to believe that he could make those events up.” But Wiesel is primarily a fiction writer and has made up lots of stories about Jews; in fact Night was for a long time listed and sold as fiction! Good fiction makes us believe it’s real even when we know better.
As to the “logical explanation” Katie thinks could be found, she doesn’t come up with one. Illogically, she says that Elie was traumatized and thus not able to remember well. But Elie has always said he waited for 10 years to write his book so that he would have a clearer mind about it. Her other “logical explanation” is: Elie is now elderly and has a poor memory, thus he gets mixed up on dates and times. But Elie wrote Night in 1955, and it is in this book that the problems exist — the book itself is inaccurate and inconsistent. Since that time he has continued to say different things — inconsistent things.
Katie’s final remark falls back on what the bulk of “Holocaust” defenders come up with: Even if he wasn’t a survivor, it’s still an “incredible [fictional] account” providing an insight into the terrible things that happened. How does he know what happened if he wasn’t there? He made it all up, taking the framework for what others had already said about it. Stop defending this multi-millionaire shyster, Katie.
I find this constant speculation about the validity of the Holocaust and its survivors extremely disturbing. The Holocaust was not a glamorous event, therefore, I find it hard to believe that someone would make up a story about being a victim of such tragedy. While I realize that many people would consider my opinion to be a ‘too optimistic’ view of human nature and morality, there is a lot of information to support the fact that Elie Wiesel was at the camp without the information that Mr. Waltzer is supposedly with-holding.
Once more, we find the belief mode: “I find it hard to believe that someone would make up a story…” Why? Hundreds of fake survivors have done so. What does it take for you to give up this childish belief in a religion of sadistically persecuted Jews?
You say it is not a glamorous event … but for ordinary “non-glamorous” Jews it is the ultimate stardom, and a very lucrative source of money too. Not only from the books they write, but also from the talks they give on the “speakers circuit” — and how they love all that respectful attention. They also love fooling so many Gentiles.
You say “there is a lot of information to support the fact that Elie Wiesel was at the camp …” No, there isn’t! This entire web site is devoted to showing that the alleged “information” is false or simply does not exist. Yet you cling to your belief in the non-existent. That is religion, not history, Lauren.
You are also mis-stating the case when you say Mr. Waltzer is withholding information. He is withholding nothing, for he doesn’t have the information he claims. Your Mr. Waltzer is another fraud who’s been caught in his frivolous promises. I know it’s tough for you to accept. But logic should tell you that if Waltzer had the information he would have put it out there already. He is embarrassing himself as a university professor by remaining silent and not publishing it. In failing to do so, he is proving my point … not yours.
Well, young ladies, thanks for your written words. They are a treasure. You are of course welcome to write again, but I caution you that I expect you to address my replies to you in some way. If you just write more of the same I probably won’t publish it. I don’t want to bore the readers. So step up to the plate!

“How puzzling all these changes are! I’m never sure what I’m going to be, from one minute to another.” ― Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
Introduction: In Elie Wiesel’s book Night, we find the scenario and characters changing often, and in many cases, with little rhyme or reason that is apparent to the reader. One easily concludes that, like Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, it is a work of absurdity.
In Lewis Carroll’s classic, nothing makes sense because nothing has to make sense – the intention was to be a “childish” type of foolishness or make-believe from the start. It is an example of literary nonsense1 genre. Interestingly, we find similar examples of nonsense and absurdity in many of the stories and writings of self-proclaimed “holocaust survivors” – and we put Elie Wiesel into this category. This is why Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is such a good fit for a parody of Elie Wiesel’s Night.
Cast of Characters:
Elie = Elie Wiesel
White Rabbit = Ken Waltzer
Father = no such person has been found
The King and Queen of Hearts = SS-Totenkopfverbände (SS-TV)
The Duchess = Hilda Wiesel
The Cheshire Cat =Carolyn Yeager
The March Hare = Antonin Kalina, Czech communist block leader
The (Mad) Hatter = Gustav Schiller, Polish Jew block leader
Elie is quite bored one warm afternoon at the Jewish orphan’s mansion in France where he lives. This is not unusual for Elie, who has absolutely nothing to do all day but play chess or study the Talmud or other holy texts of which he is known to be almost fanatically fond. Today, though, no one was around the chess table that had been set up outdoors under a large tree, and Elie becomes a bit dreamy, maybe even sleepy. He is suddenly brought wide awake again when he sees a White Rabbit run by, looking at its pocket watch and muttering “Oh dear, oh dear, I’m going to be late!”
Elie, having never heard a rabbit speak to itself before, let alone have a pocket watch, impulsively runs after the comical creature right into a large rabbit hole. He feels himself slowly falling a long distance before he comes to solid ground. When he does, an unrecognizable landscape of trees, shrubs and creatures such as he has never seen before greets his blinking eyes, and a feeling of being an innocent young girl in an enchanted garden comes over him.
Before he can wonder too much at this, he catches sight of the White Rabbit again and follows him until he is stopped by a barbed wire fence. Standing before it, just the thought of how he might squeeze through the wires to the other side as the rabbit did causes him to shrink to just the right size to step through. As he does—suddenly—he is in a closed railway car with many other people, Jews like himself.
Elie is so unhappy at this turn of events he begins to cry. He cries so much and so hard his tears flood the rail car, making all the others inside very angry, including his own late father whom now, however, seems to be very much alive. As the water made up of Elie’s tears rises closer to the top of the boxcar, the door opens and the inhabitants swim out with the rushing flood.
Appearing for all the world like a catch of wet fish flapping on the platform, the unfortunates find themselves being questioned by a large Caterpillar-looking officer seated on a high stool smoking a hookah. But not one of them is able to answer the officer’s questions as to the particulars of who they are.
“I’m afraid I can’t explain myself, sir. Because I am not myself, you see?” ― Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
The Camp Buchenland
The hookah-smoking officer tires of their inability to name themselves and, pointing in a certain direction, tells them to march that way to a camp where they will get dry clothes. Once there, the group lines up in an open assembly area and is told they are in Buchenland, the kingdom of the Queen of Hearts who, in spite of her kindly-sounding name, gives orders that must be obeyed. Ordered to now go to the showers where they would also receive the promised new clothing, Elie and Father already fail to obey.
The entrance to the showers is crowded with pushing, shoving people. Father sits down on the ground outside, “I can’t go on anymore; I’ll wait here until we can go into the showers.” As the two lose themselves in an argument over the subject of impending death, the electric lights go out and a loudspeaker commands that all must now be in their assigned barracks.
In haste, Elie follows a crowd into a nearby barracks, where, still unshowered, he falls to the floor and sinks into a dreamless sleep. It is only in the morning that he realizes he is alone; he must have lost his father in the rush to the barracks, and then forgotten about him! Going in search, he wanders about the camp for hours, unmolested by any officers or guards of the Kingdom. Happening upon a place where coffee is being distributed, he gets in line for a cup and magically hears the voice of his father calling to him.
From then on, for the next 7 days (as well as days can be counted in Buchenland), Elie keeps coming back to his father, looking after him in a rather haphazard fashion. Father is not well, not well at all, and Elie, “for a ration of bread,” is able to secure a cot next to his father in the barracks.(2) But a few days later, Elie is sleeping on the upper bunk, above his father, because of his (Elie’s) bandaged foot.(3)
The time comes that Father passes his last breath in his bunk during the middle of the night. According to Elie’s reckoning, it is February 8th-9th, 1945. But elsewhere, Elie states his father died on the night of January 28-29, and again on the 18-19 of Shevat, 5705, which corresponds to February 1st.(4) Elie is both secretly relieved and personally devastated over the loss of Father and blames it on the cruelty of the officials of the Kingdom of Buchenland, calling it murder.
The Queen of Hearts learns about young Elie’s defamations against her health care system, and at the same time the multiple death dates he asserts for his father, and proclaims with great indignation that this cannot be allowed in her Kingdom. The King agrees and they summon the culprit to their presence. After listening to Elie’s disconnected narrative of how he came to be in Buchenland and how he lost his father, she loses patience with the constantly changing versions of his story and shouts “Off with his head!”
Elie is put on trial
Elie is taken to court to be tried for the offense of butchering his father’s date of death. The King and Queen are seated on the high bench. Elie is formally charged with reckless endangerment of the facts of his father’s death. To everyone’s surprise, The Duchess arrives at the court, accompanied by her cat, and asks to testify for the accused. She is granted her request and takes the stand.
You know, [father and son] did a long march from Auschwitz, then they put them on the train to go to Buchen[land]; [Father] died gasping for air. When he stepped off the train, he died gasping for air; at Buchen[land]. But [Elie] knew the date. (5)
The Queen frowns; she is impatient of such testimony that adds even another version of the death in question—what can The Duchess be up to anyway? Then the Duchess’ Cheshire Cat begins to speak, saying the entire court is out of order because the father of the defendant is not the same as the 44-year old man who actually died and is listed in the Buchenland death records; therefore the date that Elie’s father died is irrelevant. Angered to hear it said that her court is out of order, the Queen shouts “Off with his head!” pointing to the Cheshire Cat. As the Queen’s guards move toward the cat to seize him, he cleverly disappears his body, leaving only his head for the spectators to see. How then can his head be chopped off?
Realizing she has been outwitted by a cat, the Queen then turns to Elie and declares him “Guilty! Off with his head!” As Elie is being escorted to the place of execution, he and his guards meet up with the Cheshire Cat again, now sitting in a tree. The Cat advises them to go to the March Hare’s house instead, warning, however, that the Hare is quite mad. “But then, everyone here is mad,” the Cheshire Cat adds with a grin, before he disappears altogether, leaving only his grin still floating in the air.
“Who in the world am I? Ah, that’s the great puzzle.” ― Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
The Hatter’s Tea Party
The White Rabbit is again spotted running ahead as if leading them to the house of the March Hare, which turns out to be another barracks, this one called the “Children’s Block.” Inside, the Hare and his companion The Hatter (also mad—in fact “mad as a hatter”) engage the children in a continual tea party intended to take their minds off the dreariness of their surroundings.
Elie, feeling grateful (for a change) to still have his head on his shoulders, takes a place at the tea table. He is hoping for something good to eat, as he has now lost interest in everything around him except food. But while the Hare and the Hatter provide nothing in the way of food themselves, Elie still finds the tea party routine—one of constantly changing seats, asking unanswerable riddles and reciting nonsensical poetry— much to his liking.
The Hatter has red hair, carries a big stick and likes to boss the children around in his Polish Yiddish. The March Hare is actually of Czech origin and is known to be at his most mad during the month of March, which it happens to be at this very time. Thus do the days pass in the children’s block.
The overthrow of the Queen
However, when the month of April rolls round, the Queen of Hearts discovers that Elie has been hidden in the house of the March Hare and commands the whole place be evacuated. Every day, for several days, Elie is marched to the camp gate with the other children—rumor has it either to be taken away and disposed of or to be given bread and marmalade outside the gate—but every day he is stopped right before the gate and returned to the March Hare’s house. No marmalade and no explanation given.
On the 11th, the enemies of the Queen from outside Buchenland arrive in such great numbers that all the King and Queen’s guards are forced to flee, leaving Buchenland in the hands of the Mad Hatters and the March Hares. In their celebratory mood, on the third day of what they term the “liberation,” they throw open the Queen’s royal pantries and a real party begins. Elie greedily gorges himself on whatever comes first to hand, causing a poisonous shock to his system. He falls unconscious, is taken to a hospital and doesn’t recover for two weeks.
Buchenland doesn’t even notice Elie’s absence. The new owners are busy taking photographs(6), writing publicity propaganda and giving tours of the place. Hunting down every last subject of the former Queen also occupies their attention. The non-descript intruder named Elie (not the only one so named!) is quickly forgotten.
But for this particular Elie, when he awoke again, it was like being reborn. The absurd world he had found himself in after following that White Rabbit down the rabbit hole existed no more; he was back at the mansion in France, unthreatened by any harm. It must have been a dream, he thought. But then, “I shall write about what I remember—now, before I forget. Even though it didn’t really happen, perhaps it could have happened. And since it’s there in my mind like a memory, that makes it real enough! Plus it’s a jolly good story.” So, going inside the mansion, he found paper and pencil and began writing of his amazing adventure in Buchenland, as he remembered it. And he called it Night.
“Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” ― Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
1. Literary nonsense (or nonsense literature) is a broad categorization of literature that uses sensical and nonsensical elements to defy language conventions or logical reasoning.
Nonsense is distinct from fantasy, though there are sometimes resemblances between them. Everything follows logic within the rules of the fantasy world; the nonsense world, on the other hand, has no system of logic, although it may imply the existence of an inscrutable one, just beyond our grasp.
2. “For a ration of bread I was able to exchange cots to be next to my father.” Night, Marion Wiesel translation, 2006, p.108.
3. “The sick stayed in their bunks [during roll call]. My father and I thus stayed inside. He — because of his dysentery and I — because of my bandaged foot. Father was lying in the lowest bunk and I — in the uppermost.” Un di Velt hot geshvign, 1955, p.235.
The bandage refers to the foot operation the fictional Eliezer had before he left Monowitz on or about Jan. 15-16. Could he still be wearing the same bloody bandage he arrived with? Of course not—which means he received treatment that he doesn’t want to tell about.
There is no mention in Night that Wiesel’s foot was still bandaged after 7 days in Buchenwald, and that he could be considered “not fit” for even the ordinary routine. After the march on foot to Gleiwitz, from Auschwitz, Elie never again refers to his foot in Night.
Elie Wiesel did not have a visit with Chapman University students this spring. Up until this year, he had completed only two years of his five-year appointment as a Distinguished Presidential Fellow at the university. 2013 would have been year three. Wiesel previously arrived at the end of March or in April for about five days. Now it is already June and school is out.
I searched the March 2013 archives of The Panther, Chapman U’s student-run newspaper, and found nothing. It always covered Wiesel’s visits in the past.
The last public appearances that I know of are his speech at Kent State University in Ohio on April 11th, and his participation in the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM) 20th anniversary on April 28-29, during which he had to meet lots of people. He looked frail at both events and I imagine he didn’t think he had the energy for more than those.
I have a suspicious thought, however, that he simply ran out of anything of even pretend-value to say to young students, and is now begging off his 5-year appointment. I think at the time, shortly after the Bernard Madoff scandal broke, Wiesel felt he needed money and the California Jewish funders of Chapman University’s holohoax wing came up with this idea. Wiesel grabbed it, but now doesn’t care as much, being that his son is a Vice-President at Goldman Sachs. He’s probably made up his losses already.
Wiesel had heart by-pass surgery last year, about which he wrote a book, naturally. So though he shouldn’t be having heart trouble, we may be seeing quite a bit less of him from now on. At 84, he needs to conserve his energy.
Pictured right: Elie Wiesel in younger days poses with a large bronze bust of himself that adorns the entrance to the Sala and Aron Samueli Holocaust Memorial Library at Chapman University. It opened in April 2005 and is like a little holocaust museum right there on university grounds.

I have updated the Page titled “Famous Photo of Buchenwald Survivors”, which is accessed under “The Evidence” > “Photographic Evidence” on the upper menu bar. I hope you will take a look at it. I’ve added quite a bit to what was there, and also removed some things that I no longer agree with.
This photograph is an amazing study in the use of photo-montage and general photo-manipulation by the U.S. Army OSS, and the false claims by “survivors” to be in the picture. In many cases, it seems to be mainly ego-gratification–to claim to be in an iconic image representing an important historic time of one’s people. But there is also in some cases a desire to add one’s own “witness” to the false ideas attributed to Buchenwald–a climbing on, so to speak. Such a willingness to bald-face lie is hard for non-Jewish people to fathom.
How the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington DC uses our money to further goals that serve International Jews.
Elie Wiesel and the above-named holohoax museum are as linked together as the military-industrial complex. Wiesel serves Israel and the International Jewish power structure, and in turn, it looks after him and ensures that he is not only wealthy, but famous and covered with honors and decorations that bring him respect.
The United States, since Woodrow Wilson and the 1913 takeover of the U.S. Treasury by the Jewish banking cabal’s Federal Reserve System, has been a captive nation. Even though it appears to be the most powerful nation on earth – that is appearance only if you define a nation as being governed by and serving the people who formed and created that nation.
The truth is, the American people have a foreign parasitical entity attached to our nation, which has changed its very demographic make-up and just keeps spawning more and more anti-American policies. One of the spreading tentacles of this parasite is the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
When one studies this museum, how it came into being and how it operates, one can clearly discern it’s parasitical nature – and why, rather than contributing to the national well-being, it takes away from it.
This week, Sunday and Monday April 28-29, is the culmination of several months of “commemoration” of the museum’s 20th year of existence.1 It celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2003, so I assume there will be a propaganda-filled anniversary commemoration every 10 years from now on – and maybe they’ll throw in a 25th too – unless it is put out of business. Following are some reasons the USHMM should be closed down.
It was organized and brought into being under false pretenses and for illegitimate reasons
In the 1970′s , a group of Jews (Elie Wiesel among them) began meeting for the purpose of organizing into a cohesive force to bring about a major memorial to “holocaust survivors” located in the United States.
No Americans had been involved in the deportations or internment in camps in Europe between 1941-April 1945, so a memorial in the U.S. to the people who were had no justification. However, many European Jews had managed to emigrate to the U.S. in the 1950′s and 60′s and formed in enclaves. These Jews were encouraged to use their time-honored tactic of eliciting sympathy for their alleged persecutions in order to win non-Jews over to the cause of Israel.
Since Americans are so highly propagandized (by Jewish Hollywood and Jewish media), it worked. During the 1970′s a highly-watched television miniseries “Holocaust” and lots of magazine and book attention preceded their proposal to President Jimmy Carter to appoint a special commission to look into a U.S. memorial to “The Holocaust.” In 1978 Wiesel sold the idea to Carter, when Carter was having difficulty showing successes by his administration. Winning the favor of the Jewish voting block was an obvious necessity for a second term. In this atmosphere, Carter appointed Wiesel to head The President’s Commission on the Holocaust to explore the idea of a memorial, with the aim, as Wiesel wrote to Carter, of “fighting genocide.” The American people had nothing to say about it.
A report was submitted to Carter on Sept. 27, 1979, recommending the establishment of a museum, an educational foundation and a Committee on Conscience. (Did the American people need the Jewish immigrants they had treated so graciously to “prick their conscience” to help them become aware of guilt they didn’t know they had?)
Right: Jewish contributors, The Meeds, meet Pres. Carter as he officially receives the holocaust commission report from Elie Wiesel, standing behind Carter. It’s all politics.
One paragraph taken from the very long report reads:
Granted that we must remember, Mr. President, the next question your Commission had to examine was whom are we to remember? It is vital that the American people come to understand the distinctive reality of the Holocaust: millions of innocent civilians were tragically killed by the Nazis. They must be remembered. However, there exists a moral imperative for special emphasis on the six million Jews. While not all victims were Jews, all Jews were victims, destined for annihilation solely because they were born Jewish. They were doomed not because of something they had done or proclaimed or acquired but because of who they were: sons and daughters of the Jewish people. As such they were sentenced to death collectively and individually as part of an official and “legal” plan unprecedented in the annals of history. [my underlining -cy]
And you might be surprised at the names of the 34 members – some quite recognizable, but all Jews, except maybe Telford Taylor of Nuremberg fame … or is he too?2
Consider that Carter was now gearing up for his re-election campaign, which was going to be very tough, and the members of the House of Representatives were also facing re-election, plus a third the Senate. Congress voted unanimously to establish the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Council, with Elie Wiesel as Chairman.
Once they got that far there was no turning back.
From 1980 to 1993,3 Jews put their plans in motion
Almost 2 acres of land adjacent to the National Mall were freely given by the federal government (again, without the people’s consent) for the construction of the building, which was paid for by private donations. This way, Jews had total control over the design.
You can see from the model at left (which apparently the museum directors do not want to be seen as it’s not on the USHMM website) how close the museum (which you can recognize by the temple-shaped structure on the Plaza side) is to the Washington Monument, arguably the most defining national monument in the city.
Groundbreaking ceremonies took place in 1985 – you can be sure officiated by plenty of rabbis blessing the effort. They even got one of the streets that bordered the construction renamed Raoul Wallenberg Place.4
Dedication ceremonies took place on April 22, 1993 (pictured right), and included speeches by President Bill Clinton, Chaim Herzog, president of Israel; Harvey Meyerhoff, Chairman of the Memorial Council; and the museum mascot Elie Wiesel. The sell-out of a nation!
In the following year, 1994, seeking to make more of a connection to American citizens (perhaps there was some criticism as to why this grotesque edifice even existed amongst our national monuments in the prime “tourist” section of our nation’s capitol?), the plaza shown here was dedicated to General Dwight David Eisenhower and the “soldiers who fought under his command.” Guess they had forgotten to do that earlier, caught up as they were in their self-love and self-congratulation.
Twenty years later, the “after the fact” narrative and the guilt-tripping just gets bigger
To mark it’s 20th anniversary, the museum is having a “historic gathering” of ” survivors” and WWII vets, plus a four-city traveling exhibition tour with the aim of impressing into impressionable minds the “continuing relevance of the Holocaust.” The four cities are Boca Raton, Los Angeles, New York and Chicago. It costs a lot of money to send full-scale museum exhibitions around the country like this.
Today, Monday, April 29, is the big “geriatric parade” at the museum, with speeches by former president Bill Clinton and Elie Wiesel, who were both on hand 20 years ago. They make the claim it was WWII veterans who “ended the Holocaust.” The purpose for that claim is to connect the holohoax to America via the American GI’s who allegedly liberated some of the camps. That’s why Susan Eisenhower (pictured right), granddaughter of ‘General Dwight David,’ was awarded this year’s “Elie Wiesel Prize”, their highest honor. (By engineering a Nobel Peace Prize for Wiesel in 1986, “holocaust survivors” assured themselves of a greater perception of legitimacy.)
Museum Director Sara Bloomfield emphasized that the museum’s main goal is to honor the memory of the 6 million murdered Jews. “We felt it important (while the vets are still with us) to make a commitment to them that this institution will carry forward this legacy.” Thus, the theme for this 20th anniversary is “Never Again: What you do matters.” It’s actually a giant guilt trip on White Euro-Americans.
The special anniversary exhibition is titled “Some Were Neighbors: Collaboration and Complicity in the Holocaust” (poster for the exhibit pictured right), an allusion to all those guilty ones who stood by and did nothing to prevent the “terrible treatment” of the Jews. What they never consider however, is how many thought the Jews deserved it. Of course, it must be understood that the narrative of the horrendous suffering of Jews has been wildly exaggerated beyond all semblance to the reality. This, however, is not allowed to be said.
A feature of the exhibit is sound recordings of “survivors” telling their strange stories – like Stanislaw Ochmann who, in Poland, says he transported Jews in a wooden wagon to a cemetery to be shot. As the mothers were raked by machine-gun fire, their little children clinging to their skirts were not hit, but all fell together into the pit and were covered over with dirt. Then – “the earth was moving” because “they were still alive!” This is the typical make-believe these “historians” and “researchers” at the USHMM want Americans to believe.
The museum spends an inordinate amount of time and resources talking about Nazi Germany. Yet the curator of “Some Were Neighbors,” Susan Bachrach, says she is challenging the idea that the “Holocaust” was primarily about Hitler and other Nazi leaders. “The Holocaust wouldn’t have been possible without enormous indifference (Wiesel’s favorite word) throughout Germany and occupied Europe, but also thousands of people who were ‘just doing their jobs’.”
All of the above indicates that the goal of the powerful Jewish holocaust lobby is to convince Euro-American Whites that it is their duty to forever protect the rights, interests and privileges of Jews in non-Jewish societies. They want to convince us that Jews are the people most vulnerable to persecution, through no fault of their own.
This is the game plan. How is it working?
What does it cost the nation and why not let them do it all themselves?
According to their own accounting, which you can see here, their 2011 financial report5 shows this:
2011 - $48,400,000 Federal …. $36,500,000 Non-appropriated Total $84,900,000
2010 - $48,000,000 Federal … $33,600,000 “ “ Total $81,500,000
Sept 30, 2011 Financial Position
Cash balance: 16,000,000
Long term investments: 205,179,192
The museum is exempt from income taxes, and presumably property taxes on their prime real estate.
The museum received $48.4 million from the federal government, but they raised $36.5 million on their own. It also has “long term investments” – money invested in stocks and securities - totaling over $200 million. With that kind of money available to them from private sources, they can support this entire project on their own. Without the federal funding, they would get even more money from private donors. The reason they went after federal government sponsorship is to give themselves the legitimacy it brings to their cause: eternal “Holocaust Remembrance.” To be able to present themselves as “speaking for the American nation,” not as speaking for Jewry, which is what they are actually doing.
In the now-official mission statement of the U.S. Holocaust Council, it’s first and only requirement, along with creating a museum memorial, is to conduct the annual civic observance of the “Days of Remembrance.” But they want to go way beyond that. They keep increasing their goals to be achieved. For instance:
In 2011, they continued to expand the victim’s names list and shared the information with Yad Vashem. Assisting a government institution of another nation, using our nation’s funds! In the world’s only Jewish state too. This is clearly Jews helping Jews in a Jewish project that only Jews care about. But also, who cares what the victim’s names are? Add the fact that this is totally unreliable information, but neither the USHMM or Yad Vashem care one bit about reliability, but only whether it’s good-sounding propaganda for their cause.
Another costly project of 2011 was the distribution of 6,500Days of Remembrance DVD Planning Guides – an increase of 30% over 2010. The Guide was sent to 67 military installations abroad, including Iraq, Afghanistan, Germany and South Korea. These are elaborate how-to packets, featuring historical background material (lies), poster sets, videos, readings, personal histories and even that victim name list. This is pure Jewish propaganda from their point of view only, all coming under the auspices of a U.S. government-approved program.
The museum also “served” over 3000 members of the judiciary in nine states, giving them Continuing Legal Education credits in Ethics (?! Jews are the least ethical people) for completing their course of study. Can it get any more obvious what is going on? The USHMM is in the same business as the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith. The report also brags that over 2000 law enforcement officials completed “training,” including 150 Chiefs and top leaders.
Finally, they implemented a Propaganda Initiative aimed at journalists and diplomatic officials via special programs such as:
DVD on propaganda distributed nationally to educators,
A Fred Friendly program on “The Context and Consequences of Propaganda” distributed by the leading distributor of college, university and secondary school resources (films) in the U.S.
A final note: For their 20th anniversary, the museum launched a campaign to raise $540 million by 20186. It has already secured gifts totaling $258.7 million. The campaign will double the sizeof the museum’s endowment. Also, a $15 million gift from “holocaust survivors” David and Fela Shapell will help build a new Collections and Conservation Center. This shows the limitless amount of money available to them.
Should the American taxpayers, who are overwhelmingly NOT Jewish and never involved in the holohoax in any way, be used to promote a singularly Jewish perspective on world history and current affairs? The answer has to be no, but then there is that fear of the jews ….
1. Some interesting numerology on the date carved into the museum plaque (first picture). Note that the date on the museum is April 22, 1993. That adds up to 4 (april) plus 4 (22=2+2= 4) plus 4 (1993 = 1+9+9+3 = 22 = 4). So it is 4+4+4 = 12. The Twelve Tribes of Israel? Do you think Jews would let their museum founding fall on just any old date?
2. Telford’s second wife, Toby Golick, is Jewish. They had two sons, Benjamin and Samuel.
3. 1980 to 1993 is 13 years. Again, 1+3 = 4. Coincidence, I guess.
4. Wallenburg, a Swedish diplomat, is one of the the “Christian” heroes who “rescued” many Hungarian Jews, according to their narrative.

Wiesel demonstrates he has nothing to say to the world when the only news outlet to write anything at all about his speech is the Cleveland Jewish News.
This much-ballyhooed return visit to Kent State University on the April 11 anniversary of the “Buchenwald Liberation” in 1945 proved to be as “much ado about nothing” as the earlier event 68 years ago really was in retrospect.
One of the major themes of Wiesel’s speech was the importance of having hope and his struggle with believing there is such a thing.
“Where there is no hope, our road and our path is to invent it,” Wiesel said. “I am here to teach you my hope because without it, I wouldn’t be here today.”
Invent it. That’s what Wiesel is good at: inventing things. He offered other similar thoughts that Kentwired considered worthy of quoting but are, in my opinion, devoid of any relevance when pondered for a few seconds, such as:
“For every word that a holocaust survivor writes, there are 10 more that haven’t been written,” said Wiesel. “Whoever listens to a witness becomes a witness.”
My comment on the first sentence: This is true of everyone’s written words. On the second: This well-worn phrase of his might be what is engraved on his tombstone – he has used it so often. Of his supposed liberation by U.S. soldiers at Buchenwald, he said:
We had lost every concept of how to feel. We did not know what it was like to be free.
“I believe in the virtue of gratitude,” Wiesel said. “Simply to say to each other, thank you.”
The first is patently false. It discounts all the uprisings that supposedly took place, all the resistance activity in the camps, and the fact that Wiesel only claims to be a detainee for one year. One doesn’t lose memory of freedom in one year. The second bit of wisdom takes care of not answering questions about Buchenwald nicely, doesn’t it.
At the Cleveland Jewish News (CJN), reporter Carlo Wolff (firstname.lastname@example.org) tries to build up the importance of Wiesel’s utterances by writing that he “delivered a lesson in history, literature, philosophy and morality, demonstrating his didactic prowess and his belief in the power of continuity.” I must not be intelligent enough to grasp the greatness of this speech, which Wolff tells us was appreciated by “a rapt, sell-out audience of 5000″ … mostly fellow Jews, I would say. I’m convinced that Jews from all around the broader area drove to Kent to see, hear and support one of their own, who has always fought for Jewish and Israeli interests.
No one noticed Wiesel’s mic was off for first 20 minutes
But Wolff had enough of the journalist in him to tell us about the following screw-up that must have embarrassed Kent State President Lester Lefton, also a Jew and the man who invited Wiesel to the campus.
The first 20 minutes of Wiesel’s April 11 talk almost fell on deaf ears because his microphone wasn’t turned up; most followed his eloquent words as they scrolled out on giant screens flanking the stage.
According to Wolff, Wiesel didn’t refrain from his familiar finger-pointing at the Germans.
He remains appalled by the Nazis. “The enemy managed to push its crimes beyond language,” he said, explaining the difficulty he has (and the obsessions that dog him) in telling a story that can never ultimately be told.
“They had education. They had degrees. So what happened?”
What happened? Their education helped them see clearly that Jews were a danger to their German social order – and so they were, and are. It is really only Jews who commit crimes “beyond language,” if such a thing exists. It is Jews in Israel that force pornography into Palestinian homes via their television sets, at the same time they are attacking them militarily. Only Jews would dream up something like that. Likewise, only Jews would dream up the kind of concentration camp atrocity stories they tell, atrocities that Germans, Nazi or not, would never think of themselves, and therefore never do.
Tweeting the most pithy remarks of the evening
Kentwired had someone tweeting the highlights of the evening as it progressed. Here is an example of the “best of Elie Wiesel”:
“My first passport was an American one. It’s still a symbol of human passion,” said Wiesel. “I owe America.”
“Remember there will always be questions that have no answer,” Wiesel speaking about his experience as a Holocaust survivor.
“I believe in memory because without it nothing is possible.”
“The moment we stop remembering, we stop believing.”
“Could humanity get Alzheimer’s? Could history get Alzheimer’s?”
“History has gone beyond its limits and therefore forget it no more,” Wiesel says on making sure people don’t forget.
“The love of children is the purest of all,” says Wiesel on trying to understand why children were killed during holocaust. [Wiesel had one child who grew up to go to work for Goldman Sachs - cy]
The following were probably answers to softball questions from the audience:
“History has not found balance,” said Wiesel on all the chaos in the world. “We are still waiting for redemption.
“I simply feel, again, that I have done something,” said Wiesel on his many honors and awards
“I couldn’t be who I am if not for those books,” said Wiesel on the many books he’s written
Have you had enough? It doesn’t get any better. And it all sounds very similar to Wiesel’s speech last year at Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio. To sum up, Wiesel is a fading star who may not last much longer. What can last is the incredible mythology built up around him unless we work very hard to separate reality from nonsense. This takes a consistent effort, not once-in-awhile comments about the same old themes. As we can see, that is actually Wiesel’s style and it’s not very effective. When it comes to the Elie Wiesel myth, it’s the media that has done all the heavy-lifting, not E-lie himself.
This time, even the media didn’t have an appetite for it.
Just recently, the Chief Rabbi of France, Gilles Bernheim, has admitted to plagiary and lying about it.
He is a 60 year-old “trained philosopher” who was elected in 2008 as the religious leader of the third-largest Jewish community in the world, numbering approximately 600,000. (Note the two symbolic sixes in the foregoing.) At issue were several parts of his book Forty Jewish Meditations that were found to be taken from other sources.
Right: The Great Rabbi of France Gilles Bernheim attends the UMP party‘s debate on secularism in Paris, France, April 5, 2011. No, he’s not blind, maybe just exhibiting his affinity for denial.
The plagiarizing is one thing; the trail of lies this flawed man came up with to deny it is the real scandal. Just last December, Pope Benedict XVI quoted from a recent essay by Bernheim on same-sex marriage; now there are charges that parts of that essay, too, were similar to the work of others. On Monday, a French Web site, Archeology of Cut and Paste, accused the rabbi of using passages in his essay that were close to those in a book by a priest, the Rev. Joseph-Marie Verlinde. No wonder the Pope liked it!
The exposure of the plagiarism started in March (last month) when a website named Strass de la philosophie discovered similarities between Bernheim’s work and an interview of the philosopher Jean-François Lyotard in the 1996 book Questioning Judaism by Elizabeth Weber.
A few days later, in a childish, yet cynical attempt to cover for himself, Bernheim answered by saying that some of the meditations in the books were transcripts of lessons he gave in the 1980s, as a chaplain for Jewish students, and that these lessons were often recorded while copies of his personal notes were handed to pupils – thus implying that Lyotard, who died in 1998, plagiarized him, and not the opposite.
But Elizabeth Weber subsequently refuted Bernheim’s version, saying that Lyotard had answered her questions without any notes. Also, Jean-Noel Darde, a senior lecturer at Paris 8 University, who runs a website that specializes in academic plagiarizing, suggested that the Chief Rabbi might have also used fragments of other books, written well before the 1980s, by authors such as Elie Wiesel, Jean-Marie Domenach and Charles Dobzynski.
Faced with this, the rabbi then blamed inadequate oversight of a student who did some of the writing. He said he had hired the student because of a busy schedule and had not informed his publisher of the arrangement. “It is the one and only time I made such an arrangement,” he wrote in a statement. “It was a terrible mistake. I have been fooled. However, I am responsible.” He also apologized for initially denying the accusation, calling his reaction “emotional, hasty and clumsy.” He said. “I retrospectively analyze it as denial.”
However, further proof of the man’s lying nature emerged when it was shown that Rabbi Bernheim had claimed an academic achievement that he had not earned. His Who’s Who entry, based on information he provided, says he was awarded from the Sorbonne an “agrégation de philosophie,” an elite and highly competitive academic distinction. But there is no record that he won such an honor. (Who does that remind you of?)
Left: Bernheim with former French President Nicolas Sarkozy, also a Jew, who awarded him the Legion of Honor in 2010. Sarkozy said twice that Bernheim is an “agrégé de philosophie,” a very competitive academic distinction in France.Bernheim did not contradict him.
There is growing pressure for Rabbi Bernheim to resign, but in a radio interview Tuesday night, he said he would not step down, adding that although he had made mistakes, “I have not committed fault in the exercise of my functions” as France’s chief rabbi. [UPDATE: On Thursday, the rabbi-in-denial faced reality and resigned. See here.]
At the same time, some fellow Jews rush to defend him. Richard Prasquier, a friend of the rabbi and president of the Representative Council of Jewish Institutions of France, appealed to him to set the record straight and spoke movingly of the “torment” the rabbi must feel. Oy vey.
“Gilles Bernheim is my friend,” Dr. Prasquier said in an editorial on Tuesday in the organization’s newsletter. “A life like his cannot be hostage to a few failures in an area of intellectual or academic qualification related to his activity as a rabbi.” Dr. Prasquier said Rabbi Bernheim ought to be able to continue in his job, “where he has presented, in an eloquent voice, a Judaism open to the city and rigorous in its principles.”
The position of Chief Rabbi of France comes via the Centrale Consistoire, which was created in 1808 by Napoleon to oversee Jews in France. It was intended to make sure the unruly Jews followed the laws of France concerning military service, especially, and should take up mechanical trades; but that was lost sight of long ago.
Nobody ever said that Jews held high standards for themselves. The fact that Bernheim told pathetic lies implicating innocent persons in wrong-doing that he knew was his own doing, is inexcusable in a religious leader of any rank, let alone the highest rank. However, lying about his record at the Sorbonne, giving himself high academic distinctions that were never his, is actually typical Jewish behavior. We see it with Elie Wiesel, too.
How does this relate to Elie Wiesel, or to Kenneth Waltzer?
It relates to Jews who hold respectable, responsible positions in society, who are not really qualified, in spite of degrees from the Sorbonne or Harvard. These men WILL make mistakes and will cheat. In the case of Wiesel, every degree he has is honorary, and not much is expected of him. But in the case of Waltzer, he’s expected to demonstrate serious academic ability which, so far, he has not. I will be returning to this theme, and to three photographs which have been claimed to be Elie Wiesel, that are tied to key elements in the story of Elie in Buchenwald. These three photographs can be seen here, here and here. All three have been mislabeled, and there is no effort at all to correct the record. Just as there has been no effort to answer to Verena Dobnik’s false claim that she saw Elie Wiesel’s “death camp” tattoo during her interview of him in October 2012.
All of this will be tied together under the banner of perpetual lies by people in high places. But to what degree is Elie Wiesel the source of them? Who is running the show?
Kenneth Waltzer is a professor of history at Michigan State University since the early 1970′s. He helped to create the Jewish Studies program which opened in 1992, and which he heads. In the photo at right, he is looking at a Buchenwald registration card at The International Tracing Service in Bad Arolsen, Germany. Waltzer has been researching into evidence of a special ‘boy’s protection program’ run by prisoners at Buchenwald for going on 10 years now. As an “approved” researcher, he is allowed to peruse all the files there, something that is made much more difficult, if not impossible, for revisionists.
Waltzer is considered one of the top scholars in the U.S. of the ill-named holocaust but his work has been sloppy, and his attempts to cover up the sloppiness amount to fraud. This, along with his continual promotion and defense of Elie Wiesel as a Buchenwald survivor, is what has drawn me to study him ever more closely.
Because of the seriousness of the charge I am making against him, I will list right up front my reasons for thinking it is time for such a call. They are:
Waltzer habitually tells fibs in the form of false information which is intended to mislead. When called out for it, he tells more fibs to cover for the first ones.
He has been in the service of the “Holocaust Industry,” not academic rigor and fair-mindedness, from the very start of his career.
He knowingly defrauds his students, his university and the public (you and I) with his dishonest “holocaust scholarship.”
While he is drawing high pay as a tenured American professor of history at MSU, he is working to advance the State of Israel.
I am going to show that these charges have a strong basis in fact. Fraud is commonly understood as dishonesty calculated for advantage. A person who is dishonest may be called a fraud. In the U.S. legal system, fraud is a specific offense with certain features. (see here)
Legally, fraud must be proved by showing that the defendant’s actions involved five separate elements: (1) a false statement of a material fact, (2) knowledge on the part of the defendant that the statement is untrue, (3) intent on the part of the defendant to deceive the alleged victim, (4) justifiable reliance by the alleged victim on the statement, and (5) injury to the alleged victim as a result.
I am not intending to bring legal charges of fraud against Prof. Waltzer, but to try him in the court of public opinion. Therefore, it will be up to Waltzer to defend himself against my charges.

Two years ago, I asked the question on this web site: “What happened to Ken Waltzer’s book about the boys of Buchenwald?” It was claimed to be, at that time, in it’s final stages. Eight years after he publicly announced he was researching for a book about the so-called children’s barracks at Buchenwald (Barracks #66 ), it still has not materialized. Five years after his book was described as “upcoming,” it still has not materialized. During this time, he has not produced another book, or any major work that would have taken precedence over this book. So what is the delay?
It’s pretty plain that the book’s thesis has shifted considerably since 2005, when his MSU website featured Elie Wiesel as the most recognizable and famous child survivor from Buchenwald. That website was taken down between one and two years ago and is completely wiped clean from the Internet. The banner on all the six to eight pages that were included showed a photograph very similar to the one below of the “boys” being marched out of the main Buchenwald camp to temporary quarters at the former SS barracks.
The USHMM (national holocaust museum in D.C) website dates this picture as being taken on April 17, 1945, six days after liberation.1 At this time, Elie Wiesel, by his own account in two books, was laying in a hospital sick almost unto death from food poisoning. Details like this don’t deter Prof. Waltzer from backing up in every instance the standard holocaust narrative. “Elie Wiesel in Buchenwald” is the standard narrative, so evidence must be found for it.
Ken Waltzer claimed for years that one of these boys was Elie Wiesel. But Wiesel is not in this picture!
From at least 2005 (eight years now), Waltzer has identified the boy third or fourth from the front (hard to tell) in the left-side column (dressed in a black suit and in front of the tall boy wearing a beret) as Elie Wiesel, based on nothing but his own fraudulent intention that there was enough resemblance that people would believe it if he said so. In this article , I exposed this lie. Waltzer has never admitted that he was mistaken or was perpetrating a falsehood that he intended to put into his book. Instead, what he did when his fabrication was sufficiently exposed was to take the entire site down and not mention it again.
Leftis a close-up of the boy Waltzer has maintained for several years is Elie Wiesel. Anyone can tell it is not and that’s why no one else ever publicly agreed with him.
I have some of what was on that site copied into articles here at EWCTW and also in my files. At left is the cropped section of the photo that Waltzer used on the banner of his MSU-Newsroom/Holocaust website that was very much dedicated to Elie Wiesel. (Another reader, Chris, informed me that he had found pages from the site using the Way Back Machine. Many thanks to him.) This shows that Waltzer definitely identified the boy in the black suit as Elie Wiesel. In addition, Jack Werber, a known dishonest survivor, was the supposed supplier of the picture.
Below right, a screen shot of one of the pages as it existed then, sent by a friend of EWCTW. It shows more of the emphasis on Elie Wiesel.
When I pointed out much of this in a podcast of March 25th, Waltzer sent me an email on March 28th stating,
My websites at UM FLint are down because I was appointed there one year and am now back at Michigan State.
Of course I never mentioned UM Flint and never even saw his website there. I was speaking about his MSU website, which was titled something like Ken Waltzer’s “MSU Newsroom Special Report.” It was full of information about his projects and especially what he calls “the rescue operation of children at Buchenwald.” It was up on the Net since at least 2008 2, then suddenly disappeared, with not even cache pages to be found. Did Waltzer tell me a fib, or did he just read the podcast program description and misinterpret what it said about “taking down web pages?” By now, he will know what I mean and may answer.
I think it is very possible that he timed the take-down of his MSU “Newsroom” site with his one-year visiting professorship at UM Flint — putting up a temporary website there which he could take down when he left. This is a way of confusing the picture in order to distract as much as possible from his more recent decision to put more distance between himself and his prior (false) assertions about Elie Wiesel.
His intention was and is clearly to deceive. The harm is caused to ordinary people who believe and trust that they are getting knowledgeable answers from a professor of history and a holocaust scholar. In this particular case, all five of the elements necessary to prove fraud are there.
First, he sets up a University-sponsored website maintaining falsely that Elie Wiesel is the boy in the photograph of youthful “survivors” marching out of the camp (1). He knows it is false because he has no evidence or proof, only his own “wishful thinking.” The USHMM never identified Wiesel in that group of boys, nor did anyone else (including Wiesel himself), unless they did so from following Waltzer’s example (2). Waltzer’s intent was to make the public believe something that was not true – that he had proof of Elie Wiesel being one of the “rescued children” (3). Because Waltzer is a Professor of History and “holocaust expert” at a major university, and is at all times written up very favorably in the media, the public (you and I ) and his students will rely on his statements (4). These same students and public are injured when photographs are mislabled in order to foist on them a certain belief about an influential historical event that affects their entire world view (5).
* * *
This is just one instance of the untruths that Ken Waltzer has told over the years. Another tactic he uses is to promise an upcoming answer to your doubts which he cannot or does not produce now. As we have seen, we continue to wait as he continues to promise. Still another tactic is to accuse others of lying when it is he who is doing so. But only people who are knowledgeable enough about these complex and purposely obscured issues can see who is doing the lying. In this same email, he wrote:
The book is on track, and I have also completed a separate essay to be published on Elie Wiesel and Buchenwald.
Completed, he says. And separate. Why separate? I wrote back to him asking where I could find his essay because I wanted to read it. No reply – which is typical because factual information is not his forte, emotional rhetoric is. I feel it’s quite possible he wrote a separate essay on Elie Wiesel so as not to tarnish his book with the false “facts” about Wiesel in Buchenwald. He can always get rid of an essay, if necessary, later – but not his entire book. What might there be in this essay? Will it be the same or quite different from what he wrote in a March 6, 2010 comment at Scrapbookpages Blog, when he said [my underlining-cy]:
For the skeptics [I was using the name skeptic then -cy] and know-nothings who have written in suggesting Eli Wiesel was not in the camps, that Night is purely fiction, you are all dead wrong. The Red Cross International Tracing Service Archives documents for Lazar Wiesel and his father prove beyond any doubt that Lazar and his father arrived from Buna to Buchenwald January 26, 1945, that his father soon died a few days later, and that Lazar Wiesel was then moved to block 66, the children’s block in the little camp in Buchenwald. THese documents are backed up by military interviews with others from Sighet who were also in block 66, and by the list of Buchenwald boys sent thereafter to France. All of this is public domain.
Wishful thinking by Holocaust deniers will not make their fantasies true. While Wiesel took liberties in writing Night as a literary masterpiece, Night is rooted in the foundation of Wiesel’s experience in the camps. The Buchenwald experience, particularly, runs closely to what is related in Night.
Comment by kenwaltzer — November 14, 2010 @ 6:57 am
How much untruth is contained in this, in order to defraud us all in his devoted service to the “Holocaust Industry” and the state of Israel? Plenty. As proof that Elie Wiesel was in Buchenwald, he points to documents for Lazar Wiesel and “his father.” It is even more absurd because Lazar Wiesel’s relative was only 13 years older than Lazar – it was in fact his brother Abram! Waltzer is passing off Lazar for Elie simply on the basis that Lazar also came from Sighet, Elie’s hometown and carries the same name. Sighet was a city of 50,000 or so with a very large Jewish population, and Wiesel was a common name. But the “scholar” who has taken years to research this and still isn’t finished, wants us to believe there can be only one Lazar Wiesel, who is Elie. He attributes the difference in their birthdates to bureaucratic error.
Previously I may have called this stupidity, but now I’m calling it fraud, based on the above-given definition. Of course Waltzer can see the discrepancies here, but he hopes he can convince you not to see them. The Military Interview mentioned with Lazar Wiesel’s name on it also does not have the right birthdate for Elie Wiesel, nor does the signature match Elie’s handwriting.
Will Waltzer repeat this nonsense in his latest “completed” essay? Notice that Waltzer never fails in the name-calling department, here calling his critics names such as “know-nothings” and “Holocaust deniers.” Several months later, he wrote a similar comment at EWCTW to the blockbuster article: “Signatures Prove Lázár Wiesel is not Elie Wiesel”
On November 14, 2010 at 10:34 am
Contrary to Carolyn Yeager’s wishful thinking, Eli Wiesel was indeed the Lazar Wiesel who was admitted to Buchenwald on January 26, 1945, who was subsequently shifted to block 66, and who was interviewed by military authorities before being permitted to leave Buchenwald to go with other Buchenwald orphans to France. Furthermore, there is not a shadow of a doubt about this, although the Buchenwald records do erroneously contain — on some pieces — the birth date of 1913 rather than 1928. A forthcoming paper resolves the “riddle of Lazar” and indicates that Miklos Gruner’s Stolen Identity is a set of false charges and attack on Wiesel without any foundation.
The promise of a forthcoming paper turned out to be a fib. From Nov. 2010 to now, there has not been any paper. Maybe it the the essay he mentioned in his March 28th email. “Forthcoming” to Waltzer means up to two and a half years, it seems. That in itself is the sign of an unreliable person.
There can be only one reason Ken Waltzer allows himself to look like a buffoon and a shyster. He doesn’t need to do it to keep his position at Michigan State University. He does it because it is his larger job to keep the Buchenwald atrocity stories and Liberation lies, including the Elie Wiesel myth, alive and well in the mind of the public. He works for purely Jewish interests – I will be writing a future article on the priority, meaning and funding of Jewish Studies programs in American universities. For now, I can add that Waltzer is more of a public relations (PR) worker for the Holocaust Industry, the State of Israel and maybe AIPAC, than he is an honest-to-god academic. Another organization connected to Israel that he serves is Scholars for Peace in the Middle East. He has written four attack-dog articles for them since 2009, functioning in a sort of Abe Foxman-pitbull style.
In Nov. 2009, he attacked Alison Wier as another “know-nothing” because she speaks up for Palestinian rights on college campuses, where she is popular.
In May 2010, he went after John Mearsheimer for calling Israel “an apartheid state” and also took out after Noam Chomsky, Norman Finklestein, and “the crackpot Phil Weiss.”
Also in May 2010, another target was Judith Butler, who campaigned at the Berkeley campus for the university “to divest from companies making military weapons which Israel employs to commit war crimes.”
In August 2011, he wrote on the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, arguing for Israel’s interests to be well and strongly presented on college campuses.
But this is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Walzer’s pro-Israel activities. I will be writing further articles that present the evidence for Ken Waltzer being guilty of fraud in his public writings and during his entire career. Much of it revolves around Elie Wiesel and the Industry’s need to place him at Buchenwald. My position, if you have somehow missed it, is that Elie Wiesel was never at Buchenwald. I am also saying that Waltzer is backing down or “stepping back” from his blatant, dishonest claims about Wiesel, but he can’t back down altogether. This article will become Part One.
1. I have also seen it dated April 27 at the USHMM and have used that date in other articles here. Now I have only found this one picture which is very officially dated the 17th. There may have been an attempt to move the date to the 27th so that Wiesel could be in the picture (though he supposedly would not have been released from the hospital until the 28th). It is really too bad the USHMM cannot be relied upon; nor can Yad Vashem. When the museum “researchers” are involved in lying or in complacency, one really has nowhere to turn.
Elie Wiesel is known for putting big ones over on the American (and other English-speaking) people , so it is no surprise to us that he is also faking his knowledge of Hungarian. I had already noticed that on the rare occasions he is shown speaking that language, he doesn’t go beyond short phrases or even just one-or-two-word questions and answers. Not being linguistically gifted myself, I didn’t feel I could say much about it.

But now a Hungarian-American reader named John contacted me about the video “Elie Wiesel Goes Home.” He began by watching the short segment (2 min 29 sec) that is available on Youtube. He noticed discrepancies right away.
According to John:
Wiesel is speaking Hungarian words, but they are not spontaneous and his “inflections” are all wrong. The person he is speaking with IS speaking spontaneously, with proper Hungarian (very language specific) inflections, and using the proper idiomatically correct sentence structures. Wiesel is speaking in a short, pressured, and monotone manner – more like if a foreign-born person would have studied a travel guide.
Also, Wiesel’s accent while speaking English is not like a native Hungarian who is speaking English. Listen to former Senator Tom Lantos – he was from Hungary and also of Jewish descent; his accent, while speaking English, has the distinctive Hungarian characteristics that I am familiar with.
John told me why he thinks he is a competent judge of Wiesel’s language skills:
I was born in Hungary and escaped from there in 1956. I am fluent in Hungarian (without any accent) and I am fluent in English (without any accent). I was educated both in the U.S. and (some) in Europe, I have traveled a lot and I understand “cultural idioms.”
In his first message to me, John detailed a few translation errors in the video segment.
Video captions vs. the correct translation:
@48 seconds into the video the caption reads “This is the most important” – the correct translation is “This is the most interesting”
@ 54 seconds into the video the caption reads “A farewell letter. When they knew they’d be taken away.” – the correct translation is: “This is a farewell letter, [written] while they were alreadywaiting, to take them away”
@ 57 seconds into the video the caption reads “I had a Christian employee” – the man simply says “I had an employee.”
John then did an exact word for word comparison of the captions on the film segment versus what was actually spoken between the two men. The Hungarian is showing some family photos to Wiesel as they speak. What we notice is that Elie Wiesel said very little, and at times the Hungarian man didn’t seem to understand Wiesel’s words. In order to demonstrate that, I will now copy just the actual words that passed between the two, leaving aside the captions. Wiesel’s speech is in blue boldface.
My brother’s family. You said you knew them? Yes. This is with his wife. His children, my oldest brother, who might have known you. [Note that Wiesel does not answer.-cy] And, ah, did they go to Auschwitz? What’s that?
They went to Auschwitz.
Everyone. They don’t exist to anyone. I would remember. They don’t exist.
This is my mother. Mother.Did she die here in Sighet or Auschwitz?
Iske died in Sighet, she lived until ’34.
This is our entire family … as we were [as all of us that were around]. And this?
This. This is the most interesting. This … is a farewell letter, while they were already waiting, to take them away. Yes.
Then … I had an employee … [Wiesel interrupts as if he doesn't know what was said about the employee.-cy] They didn’t know about Auschwitz.
They didn’t know, of course no one knew, and it came to us [later] what was to be.
Then they, the children, wrote me a farewell letter, because they knew then that … I had sent the man from the forests to find out what’s going on … [“forests” could refer to a region, i.e. Transylvania in Hungarian is “Erdély” meaning “The Forests” - John] and afterwards, on the last day, they sent me this letter — that the children, he, his wife and my father say farewell to me. This is very important.
Wiesel turns to one of his crew near him and says in English: “This is a collective letter of farewell that the entire family wrote to him the day of the deportation, this is very important.”
This is very important.
Yes. From the content you’ll see – Exactly.
what kind of mood, sadness, they didn’t know what was going to happen … they were sitting on their luggage and waited for them to come … poor things … and then, well, the rest of it we already know … we didn’t know what would be desired to happen, or what will happen. I told all of this stuff to Militka in English. No one came back?
What? No one came back?
No one in the world. No one.
There would still be a lot more, but these are the most important. I am very happy for this because it would have been lost. This … it was left.
It is clear from this that Wiesel’s part in this conversation consists of very few words, spoken repetitively. Add to this the claim by Nikolaus Grüner that Wiesel declined to speak with him in Hungarian when they met in Stockholm in 1986, and other situations wherein Wiesel had the opportunity to show off his Hungarian but didn’t … and we have to assume that he is simply unable to speak it with any fluency.
What else can explain Elie Wiesel’s lack of understanding of the Hungarian language?
As I have written in earlier articles, Elie Wiesel did not like public secular school, but he loved Jewish religious school. As a youth, he often played sick and missed school. Yiddish was the common language spoken in the home and in the community. Wiesel learned Hebrew and devoted himself to the Talmud and other Jewish religious texts. He did not like Gentiles and avoided them; Hungarian was the language of the enemy. Later, at age 17 (or earlier?) he went to France and became a French speaker.
But why doesn’t he just say so? Why does he prefer to give people a false impression about himself? Is this just another aspect of his need to lie — to make up stories, to see that which didn’t happen as if it did happen, and that which did as not having happened? Is Elie Wiesel just an inveterate, or compulsive, liar?
“Holocaust survivors” are mostly people who tell lies. The late Senator Tom Lantos (below left) is a good example. It turns out that he and Elie Wiesel are the same age — both born in 1928, in February and September respectively, and according to their own accounts (no other confirmation) were arrested in Spring 1944 in the Jewish round-up in Hungary. Wiesel says he was sent to Auschwitz and got tattooed, along with his father. Lantos tells a different story.
Is there any reason to believe the story Tom Lantos tells of being a “holocaust survivor?”
Tom Lantos was born in 1928 (same year as Elie Wiesel) to a Jewish family living in Budapest. According to his Foundation biography, “as a teenager he was sent to a forced labor camp by the German Nazi occupant military. After escaping the labor camp, he sought refuge with an aunt who lived in a safe house operated by Raoul Wallenberg …”
In March 1944, [Lantos] was sent to a labor camp in Szob, a small village about 40 miles north of Budapest. He and his fellow inmates maintained a key bridge on the Budapest-Vienna rail line. Lantos escaped, was captured and beaten, then escaped a second time and returned to Budapest.
Do we know that Lantos was not paid for this labor – as so many were – but still “ran away” and returned to Budapest, where he met up with some form of resistance organization? No we don’t. No research has been done; no proof or records of any of this has been presented. It is simply accepted that Tom Lantos is a holocaust survivor and entitled to the sympathy and prestige that accompanies that status, plus payments for life from the “perpetrators.” His Foundation biography continues:
“After the Russians liberated Budapest in 1945, Tom tried to locate his mother and family members but came to realize that they had all perished …”
Tom was in Budapest all that time and didn’t try to locate his mother?! His story is that he was “able to move around freely due to his having blond hair and blue eyes, which to the Nazis were physical signs of Aryanism” … as if the German police were even in Budapest and, if they were, would be unaware that Jews could also have blond hair and blue eyes. “As a result, he acted as a courier for the underground movement and delivered food and medicine to Jews living in other safe houses.” Naturally, he is presented as a positive figure, similar to Max Hamburger.
There is nothing finally said about what befell his family members, yet Wikipedia states, without any source or reference whatsoever, that “his mother and other family members had all been killed by the Germans, along with 450,000 other Hungarian Jews during the preceding 10 months of their occupation.” Believable? The source of all this can only be Tom Lantos himself, who has already been outed (by Eric Hunt, for one, in his film “The Last Days of the Big Lie“) as a practiced liar in hearings about Iraq on Capitol Hill. But heck, we all know …
His experiences in the Holocaust and afterward were highlighted in the Academy Award winning documentary The Last Days (1998) produced by Steven Spielberg‘s Shoah Foundation.
Some things we can learn from all this:
Sixteen-year-old boys in Hungary were just as likely to be sent directly to nearby labor camps, and not to Auschwitz, in which case they would NOT have been tattooed with an Auschwitz camp number. This could explain something about Elie Wiesel.
It was not too difficult in 1944 to escape custody and join the “resistance” without being discovered, especially if you had close relatives who had managed to avoid deportation.
These 16-year-olds had fathers, mothers and siblings that were also capable of work, but supposedly were not sent to labor camps as Tom Lantos was, but for some unexplainable reason to Auschwitz to be killed. In any case, it is always said that none survived.
Have you ever wondered that? I sure have. If this website Elie Wiesel Cons The World is telling lies about him, it would be the natural thing to do. In the same vein, if Elie Wiesel has the number A7713 tattooed on his arm, as he says he does, it would be very easy to show it to the world and put me out of business. It is inexplicable that he doesn’t do it if he could. The only logical conclusion to reach is that he can’t … because he doesn’t.
Not only does Elie Wiesel not sue me, he doesn’t go after Nikolaus Grüner either, who called him a liar before I did. Grüner did try to sue Elie Wiesel, though, but was prevented from doing so by the courts and legal systems that protect Wiesel according to Zionist orders.
I’m told the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum closely follows this blog. I have said many negative things about the museum, too. For instance, that it is a criminal conspiracy to defraud the American people — certainly to defraud the American taxpayers out of fifty or so million dollars a year. I have accused the USHMM of blatant lying, of perpetuating false information even after it knows it is false, of creating an atmosphere of hate against anyone Jews don’t like. And, yes, of being totally run by Jews for Jewish interests — not the interests of history — very similar to the OSI (Office of Special Investigations) in it’s disreputable and downright illegal tactics.
Elie Wiesel and the USHMM – a mutually beneficial relationship
I have previously written about the symbiotic connection between Elie Wiesel and the national holocaust museum he was instrumental in creating in this country – the USA. Built in Washington D.C. on federal ground amidst the national monuments to American history, this parasitical monstrosity pretends to be something that helps to insure the American idea of freedom and democratic principles around the world!
A faithful reader recently wrote to me:
Did you know the USHMM was closely following your blog?
Two weeks ago, I landed on the Oral History site; I did not intend to watch the VDO, but scrolling down the page, saw there was a clickable link to the transcript of the interview in .doc or .pdf format. That’s quite handy and I downloaded a couple every day till the 26th, when I posted my comment [here at EWCTW] with a link to their site on one of the rare pages without a clickable link. Guess what? – on the evening of the very same day each and every link had been disabled.
Well these testimonies have been recorded in the late 80s or early 90s, before the advent of the net and they believed they could get away with telling anything … (Bomba tells he dug a bunker in the ghetto for 50-60 people, loading it with food for 2 YEARS, apparently in a matter of days … to fifth-graders).
I am not surprised at that. I too see changes based on what is exposed on Elie Wiesel Cons The World. Just one example is Wiesel’s now more secret visits to Chapman University after I so effectively panned his first visit as a “Distinguished Presidential Fellow” in March 2011, based simply on what I read in the local and campus newspapers. We also had a fellow, Steve, pass out flyers at a Wiesel talk during that same visit. Since then, Wiesel’s visits and talks have been handled differently. In his 2012 visit to Chapman, there was no publicity and Wiesel only appeared to students in very private and secure settings. So far, there have been no announcements of his 2013 visit that I have seen.
So they react, but they are careful not to ever mention this web site or my name in any way. To object in any way about it or me would mean they would have to show, demonstrate, prove, provide evidence or give testimony that I am wrong. They know beforehand they cannot do that because they know they are the liars, not me. They depend on the news and entertainment media to keep the public believing they have noble aims.
I would have to say that Elie Wiesel and the USHMM are afraid to touch this web site because of the deep research I have done, to which they have no answers or rebuttal. Without the power of the media covering for them, and all branches of the U.S. government backing them, they would wither and die from their lack of credibility.
Their chosen method is to stay in generalities and avoid specifics
The powers that are behind Elie Wiesel and the USHMM know that they can only succeed by using generalizations like “hate,” “genocide,” “anti-Semitism,” “religious persecution,” “6 million,” etc. along with such vague “legal” language as “stirring up racial hatred” and “encouraging contempt for individuals or groups”. No legal system that has acquiesced to what the Jews want in the way of protections for themselves will allow for introduction of evidence that actually pertains to truth or falsehood of specific elements of the narrative.
Both Elie Wiesel and the USHMM make specific charges against those they call the perpetrators of evil, but they will never answer to the denial by said “perpetrators” that they committed these evils. Via the total postwar power assumed by the victors of World War II (those who brought about WWII in order to gain this power!), this question was never allowed consideration. Again, it was the media that did the job.
Legal Definition of libel
1) n. to publish in print (including pictures), writing or broadcast through radio, television or film, an untruth about another which will do harm to that person or his/her reputation, by tending to bring the target into ridicule, hatred, scorn or contempt of others.
What I do here seems to fit that (apart from the word “untruth”), but there is no response from those who are so targeted. Of course, my intention is to discover and to tell the truth, not to slander. The only complaints I get are a few comments, and once in awhile an email, from ardent fans of Elie who chastise me for being insensitive to the man’s suffering — which to their illogic means to them he can have no reason to lie about it and would only tell the truth. (And if he doesn’t, well – that is excused on the same grounds.) To their thinking, Jewish suffering excuses all moral failings. These writers are mostly female and young, appearing as though they had looked up Elie Wiesel on the Internet, come upon this site and were shocked by it. Unfortunately, these young’uns would be the first to use the “chosen method” described above, that is, to judge harm done according to “selected” peoples’ feelings. That is the only way anyone will ever touch it.
