Elie Wiesel at Jewish Book Fair

Elie Wiesel at a Jewish Book Fair

We are excited to welcome you to an adventure of discovery… exploring the mystery of Elie Wiesel. This website is still under construction, but enough of the most important parts to our challenge are in place for you to understand what we are doing. Here is a brief guide to what we have and where we intend to go from here.

As you can tell from the title of this website, Elie Wiesel Cons The World, we are not pulling our punches; we believe Elie Wiesel has a great deal to answer for, and that it is time he did.

The first thing you might want to read is ‘Where is the Tattoo?’ This is the starting point of our challenge. Following that, go directly to ‘The Evidence.’ Read The Documents carefully. Even if you have already read the articles by Carlo Mattogno on the Inconvenient History Revisionist Blog [Feb., March, May 2010], and perhaps even Miklos Grüner’s book Stolen Identity,  the documents here have been ordered to make a complex trail easier to follow. As new and pertinent documents come into our hands (and they will), we will add them to this page.

Also important in understanding the duplicity inherent in the Elie Wiesel legend is the analysis of the ‘Famous Buchenwald Photo,’ which it would be good to read next. By now, you may be floored and need to take a break. Some reflection at this point might be in order so that one does not take a hard position either for or against this information.


We want to promote a populist style of activism, thus we have Projects on our menu bar. So far, we have prepared a project called Boston University. This is the institution that has provided a haven of respectability for Wiesel for many years, and where he pretty much does and comes and goes as he wishes. After reading this page, and if you agree with us, we hope you will begin to act on our suggestions. We believe we are fully within our rights, and even our obligation, to demand the Department of Philosophy, under Department Chair Professor Daniel Dahlstrom, examine the background of Professor Wiesel, just as it would any other member of its academic community/department.


We are doing research on this matter that should have been done in the past but was not. We place it under Projects on the menu because everyone can research these issues, and we encourage each one of you to join in this work. If something intrigues you, or you would like an answer to a question in your mind, go after it. You may go down a rabbit hole and come up with gems no one else has discovered. There is so much mystery, so much confusion, so many contradictions, unknowns, surrounding Elie Wiesel, it is still largely unexplored territory for researchers.

One area we’re looking into is Elie’s whereabouts between 1945 and 1955. When did he first go to Israel? When did he go to Buenos Aires where his book Night was published? When and how did he meet the successful author Francois Mauriac, who drastically shortened and practically rewrote Night?

There is a group photograph of the orphans at Ambloy, France. The USHMM states that Elie is among them, but we haven’t been able to find a face that resembles his. (I wrote to the Museum asking them to point out which one was Elie, but have received no answer.) There is a picture of Elie on a boat, supposedly on his way to Israel in 1949. Was this his first trip there?

Elie Wiesel in 1954, age 26
Elie Wiesel in 1954, age 26 (NOT)

There is an “entry card to France” (not a passport) dated 1954 with Elie’s current profile—he looks very young and slender. We think this Elie looks younger than the alleged Elie in the 1945 Famous Buchenwald Photo, which was taken 9 years earlier. How are these matters reconciled?  UPDATE: Six years later, in 2016, I have realized this is NOT a picture of Elie Wiesel. It seems to resemble him, but Elie Wiesel was heavier and older-looking in 1954. His hair was dark, longish and wispy, not tightly curled. I don’t want to remove what I originally wrote here since it’s been available so long, and additionally it’s a confirmation for others who have been fooled by this image that it is NOT Elie Wiesel after all. 


How did Elie Wiesel become the world’s most famous holocaust survivor? Did he do anything exceptional? Did he suffer more than others? Our answer to both is no—in fact, to the contrary.  What he did was to write a book that became the most famous book about The Holocaust. That book is Night. It’s been required reading in many high schools and colleges for years, guaranteeing it exceedingly high sales. Who decided that this book was exceptional? The reading public? It was slow to gain any sales or recognition. It took three years to sell the first 3000 copies of the 1960 English translation, according to Wiesel himself. What happened to change that? We have not yet found a single comment to explain it, but like all successful books, music, movies, it needed an influential and well-heeled promoter(s) and it obviously got one. Who is or are these persons?

The book itself adds immensely to the suspicions about Wiesel, and we intend to do an in-depth investigation of Night. It was presented as fiction in its first editions; and re-categorized as non-fiction about the time when it started to really sell. But the account Wiesel gives of Auschwitz-Birkenau is fictional indeed, not conforming to the accepted historiography of the camp during the time he was supposedly there. For example, there is no mention of homicidal gas chambers in Night, which were allegedly working day and night during the summer of 1944 with the arrival of the Hungarian Jews, but he did write about outdoor pits of fire to which he was several times led with a group of others to be burned alive, but—with no explanation to the reader at all except “a miracle”—at the last minute the Germans directed him elsewhere. Strange things like that.

When he injures his foot, instead of being sent to a gas chamber (or the burning pit) because he is no longer useful, he is put into a hospital where surgery is performed on his foot! Not only that, his father is allowed to stay there with him. When the SS are abandoning the camp in January 1945, Wiesel chooses to go with them to another camp in Germany rather than wait for the Russian liberators, which over 7000 inmates did. They were still there when the Russians arrived.

Elie Wiesel has never adequately addressed these and other problems in Night. He is never asked to address them, except by revisionists. That most likely explains why he’s said, on different occasions, that he doesn’t want to be in the same room with a revisionist. His only answers are that there are no answers. “I cannot explain it,” he says.

With this website, we are asking Elie Wiesel to explain himself, to answer for himself. We are asking hundreds, and thousands, of you to ask him too; indeed, to demand that he respond to these questions. This is our beginning. Where we will end up is yet to be known.

    Of course, Elie Wiesel isn’t going to respond to any of the questions presented here. I forget the name of the rabbi who established the “no debate with doubters” gambit, but it’s carved in stone and silence is accepted as the proper response by all gatekeepers. The holocaust has become a theological “tremendum.” It’s priests would be giving legitimacy to questions like these about Elie Wiesel if they deigned to answer them.

    My question for Eli Wiesel investigators is where are his two sisters? He’s written that they survived and immigrated, too.
    If the sisters could be found they could be asked to confirm his identity.

    This man was in the Irgun (a militanly Zionist underground paramilitary cadre that terrorized the British army and civilians in Palestine before Israel’s statehood). He may have only been a polemicist or a journalist, but as any sort of Irgun operative he has no moral authority whatsoever. What he does have in spades are rivers of Muslim and Christian blood on his hands.

    Congratulations in finally getting this up and running. I know this information has been out there for some time and i hope more people will get to realise and see for themselves just one of the many cons and lies being pushed upon us.

    The Imagining Madoff affair with Wiesel’s defamation accusation is so telling.

    This community is living exclusively in fiction. All is fabricated. Even themselves. They are lost in their own lies.

    It’s all crumbling like a house of cards. So they hide in their theaters and movies, like under a mother’s dress.

    Wiesel so recognize himself in Madoff. Actors playing actors playing actors…

    Eli Weisel has been exposed as a liar so many times by so many people in so may ways that it’s disgusting to even see a photo of that creep.

    There’s a larger issue here. As with everything else in the holo-hoax, claims regarding tattoos are riddled with absurdities and contradictions.

    Why would the Germans have bothered to tattoo Jews before gassing them?

    Some Jews say the Germans targeted all Jews for gassing. Some say that only Jews at Auschwitz got tätowierung (tattoos). Why would the Germans only tattoo inmates at Auschwitz?

    The only “evidence” that Jews were tattooed is from “survivors” displaying their holo-hoax tattoos 65 years after the war. There are no documents, no photos or drawings of tattooing equipment — nothing. If the Nazis wanted to tattoo Jews, then the Nazis would surely have developed a machine for this, since it would take a long time to tattoo six million Jews before gassing them.

    Jews say that numerals at first were sewn on inmates’ clothes, but when the mountains of corpses piled up, the Germans found it difficult to identify them, so the Germans started writing numbers on the corpses’ chests with ink. Why identify corpses before tossing them into pits and ovens? Why identify corpses at all? Did the Soviets bother to mark or tattoo people when executing them en mass? (e.g. Katyn Forest Massacre)

    Jews claim that by 1941 the Germans started using a special stamp composed of needles to tattoo Jews that had been gassed or were about to be gassed. This tattoo was allegedly applied to the upper left part of the breast. Later, according to Jews, the Germans started tattooing Jews by using a single needle on the left forearm. Some say that inmates did this. Fine, but how do we know the Germans required it? Auschwitz was full of criminals, and it is a very common in any prison for inmates to tattoo each other.

    If Jewish inmates were indeed tattooed, then logically the Germans would have only tattooed foreign Jews that were habitual criminals so they could not alter their identities if they escaped amid the chaos of war. Then again, tattoos can be altered or defaced, so what good are they? Indeed, Edwin Black in his book “IBM and the Holocaust” (2001) says few if any Jews were tattooed. Instead, Jews and other camp inmates were identified by IBM punch cards kept in a file that followed inmates wherever they went.

    Internet pictures of Jews with alleged holo-hoax tattoos are inconsistent in the numerals, codes, styles, and symbols displayed. Some are on the inside of the arm; some outside. This is strange, given the Nazi penchant for efficiency and standardization. Since any tattoo can be covered by another tattoo, the location would have to be standardized if the tattoo were to serve for the possible identification of escaped inmates. That way, any person with a tattoo in that location would be suspect. Failing to put the tattoo in the same place each time would render it even more useless than ever.

    The whole business is absurd.

    Below is a YouTube video below that purports to show children being tattooed in the camps, but no children are actually shown with tattoos.

    In 1979 when I got out of the army, I went to work for a Jewish man north of Redding CA. He owned a ranch near Redding and a big motel in southern CA. He claimed to be a Survivor and told me his story. He said that as a child he was in the Warsaw Ghetto as a orphan. He said that he used the underground sewer lines to sneak in and out of of the Ghetto to steal food and other things from the Germans, which he brought back into the Ghetto for the other prisoners. He told me that he was in the Ghetto when the final small war erupted with between the resistors and the Germans, and that he escaped through the sewers. He then went on to tell of how he snuck out of Poland, across Germany, into France, where he caught some kind of boat to England. From England he said that he made it to New York, all as a 12 year old boy. He said that when in New York he was cared for for a few days by a charity that gave him a pair of shoes and then turned him loose on the street to fend for himself. He nearly cried when he told me how he got a new pair of shoes from the charity, that he was so proud of them that he just hung them around his neck by the laces and didn’t wear them because they were the first pair of shoes he had ever had. He told me that he had never ever been in a concentration camp. Again, he stated that he had never been in any camp.

    But guess what, he also showed me the number that was tattooed on his left forearm. The problem is, only inmates of Auschwitz were tattooed. The people living in the Warsaw Ghetto were not given tattoos. He lied to me. He lied to many people. I have no idea where or when he got his tattoo, but I would suggest New York city. He had his story down pat and told it like a pro, but I have no idea if any of it was true. It is sad that a person would do something like that, but people did do it. It is sad that people would try and profit the a mass murder of so many innocents. You can’t always believe the stories you hear, especially if a person charges 25,000 to speak and needs a chauffeured limo to boot.

    Well, it’s about time someone is not so afraid of the Jewish machinery of condemnation and starts to question some of the obvious lies told about the so called “Holocost”. You would think they were the only ones who suffered during the 2nd world war. And, not much is mentioned of the crimes the Zionist attacks on innocent people in order to get their agenda to become a reality. They continue to propogate these lies and exagerate them in order to gain sympathy for their cause. Thank you for exposing them.

    About tatoos.

    Here is what I found on the United States Holocaust Museum web site :

    “Initially, the SS authorities marked prisoners who were in the infirmary or who were to be executed with their camp serial number across the chest with indelible ink. As prisoners were executed or died in other ways, their clothing bearing the camp serial number was removed. Given the mortality rate at the camp and practice of removing clothing, there was no way to identify the bodies after the clothing was removed. Hence, the SS authorities introduced the practice of tattooing in order to identify the bodies of registered prisoners who had died.”

    This just dont make any sense.

    Why not just order the prisonner to undress before execution ?

    “there was no way to identify the bodies after the clothing was removed.”


    Because they were expecting to give them a grave with their number carved on it, or what ?

    How can this sort of total nonsense be considered museum material ?!

    You’re right. It doesn’t make any sense. It’s a kind of fantasy for fools. The USHMM sure doesn’t deserve the $50 million it gets from U.S. taxpayers this year to propagate misinformation like that.

    What I find disturbing is that you would be hard pressed to find a public school in the United States that doesn’t use Wiesel’s books to teach ‘history’.All compliments of the U.S. taxpayer of course.

    To Abdul Alhazred:

    Only Jews *registered* as inmates at Auschwitz were given registration numbers, and there is no doubt whatsoever that this numbering system was indeed enforced. According to the exterminationists the non-registered Jews were sent to be “gassed”, according to the revisionist hypothesis, which is the only one consistent with the documentary and material evidence, these unregistered Jews were only held at Auschwitz for a brief time before being sent elsewhere, mainly to the occupied eastern territories.

    As for the tattoos, there is little reason to doubt that they were carried out. That the inmates were tattooed with their numbers is also supported by documents, such as a report from September 1944 concerning a prisoner escape, in which is mentioned as characteristics of the detainees that they have numbers tattooed on their left lower arms; see

    TSK, TSK such racists as yourselves. Shame on all of you. Freedom of speech should only exist when it does not infringe on the rights of others. Racists and anti-semites should not be allowed their public platform as you are only inciting hatred in others. Why can’t you believe this man went through a horrendous ordeal. Be thankful that none of you ever have.

    You are the first one to write in opposition to what we are doing on this website. You are welcome to do so. But to only charge us with “racism” and “anti-Semitism?” Is this all you can offer? Where do you find either one — please point it out specifically.

    Or maybe you are speaking to the comments published here, not the website information. In that case, be more specific also. Where is the incitement to hatred that you say is here? What is hated is fraud, taking people’s money under false pretenses, promoting hatred and false witness toward an entire nation (Germany). I ask you to read everything on this website (not just the comments by other readers) carefully and then write again with specific criticism against what we present, and tell us why we are wrong.

    This website is about presenting facts. We will deal only with facts. Future comments that are only about name-calling will not be published, from either side of the argument. So when you ask “why can’t you believe this man went through a horrendous ordeal,” I say: No, why should we “believe” when there is no proof, and especially when there is proof to the contrary (as you will find on this website if you trouble yourself to read it). Believing is for children. It is your job, and his job, to prove Wiesel’s self-serving statements.

    No, no…**you** should be ashamed of your supremacism and racism.
    You, dear woman, are the racist for the very reason that you wish to elevate Jewish suffering above that of all other races of human beings in all of human history. That is racist and it ends right here, right now.
    Shall I school you, seeing as how you are ignorant of Allied history, in the myriad Allied crimes against the German people? Or shall I let you read about those monstrosities for yourself?

    I think I’ll let you read it for yourself, supremacist, so that you can get a sense of the crimes perpetrated by your people against no less than TWO MILLION civilians in the Axis nations.

    “Freedom of speech should only exist when it does not infringe on the rights of others.”(Deborah Barton)

    Then how come this man is permitted to accuse a whole nation (german people) of a crime (gas chambers) without any proof ?

    I call that calumny. Of the worst kind.

    Deborah, you are describing the Holohoaxers and not the revisionists. Elie and people like you are the ones inciting hatred in others.
    I can’t believe Elie went through a horrendous ordeal because he did not. It’s that easy. Many Germans and others went through far worse of an ordeal during the bombings of Hamburg and Dresden, and the when the Communist Jews took control of eastern Europe.
    You and your kind continually persecute innocent people for crimes that were never committed.

    You really should be ashamed of yourself for repeating the Holohoax lie, but like Elie, you don’t have any self respect.

    Dear Deborah:

    As you know the revisionist arguments never do apology of any crime or racism. The revisionism, as a movement, tries to start an open debate upon a subject that accuses innocent people of crimes that never existed. This debate is never possible, in many cases prohibited, and frequently the only answers are insults like yours (racists, anti-semites, etc).

    Don’t forget that there are many jews that are revisionists and, of course, they are not anti-semites. They don’t appear on the media, what a pity.

    Just imagine that the revisionist point of view is true: What wonderful news for all the World!! (germans ands jews included).

    Do a sacrifice and take a look at those peace arguments. Forget the official hatemongers for a while and, in your intimacy, through the internet, get informed.
