Part 1 : Elie Wiesel and the Merchants of Mendacity
1. Where Are The Gas Chambers?
Last year’s Holocaust Memorial Day was also the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp. With the help of the Holocaust Education Trust, mainstream journo Matthew Tucker, a devout Zionist and subscriber to the orthodox Holocaust narrative, spoke to four British “Holocaust survivors” who live in London: Lily, Josef, Renee, and Zigi.
We will deal with their testimonies in Part 2 of this article but will initially set out the first principles of the Holocaust narrative. The main objective of this Holocaust narrative, we shall show, is to establish in the minds of the masses—by means of constantly repeated lies and distortions—the ineradicable idea of the Jews as Eternal Victims, cruelly treated and hated without respite for centuries.
This is done in three ways: (1) by playing on the emotions of pity and terror as in Greek tragedy; (2) by depicting the relationship between gentile and Jew as a grotesque, sadomasochistic caricature in which the gentiles are always perceived as pathological bullies and the Jews as their helpless victims; and (3) by producing, on an industrial scale, a genre of horror fiction centering around concentration camps and presenting it to the public as historical fact. We are dealing, in short, with premeditated deception on a monumental scale.
This is how the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust describes the Holocaust:
“Between 1941 and 1945, the Nazis attempted to annihilate all of Europe’s Jews. This systematic and planned attempt to murder European Jewry is known as the Holocaust (The Shoah in Hebrew).
From the time they assumed power in 1933, the Nazis used propaganda, persecution, and legislation to deny human and civil rights to Jews. They used centuries of antisemitism as their foundation.
By the end of the Holocaust, six million Jewish men, women and children had perished in ghettos, mass-shootings, in concentration camps and extermination camps.” (See here)
However, there is slight problem. To date, the Holocaust authorities have been unable to prove the existence of a single authentic gas chamber.
“Show me or draw me a Nazi gas chamber!” Holocaust revisionist Robert Faurisson once challenged his critics. “I’m still waiting!”
Unable to show him a single authentic gas chamber or to silence him, Faurisson’s detractors responded by throwing him into prison and beating him up. Here is a photo of Faurisson in hospital, his face covered in blood. Three Jewish fanatics were responsible for his facial disfigurement.
FAURISSON IN HOSPITAL
(one of eight separate attacks on the revisionist scholar by Jewish fanatics)
Organized Jewry’s response to this vicious attack on Faurisson was predictably defiant: he had it coming. “Someone who has provoked the Jewish community for years,” Serge Klarsfeld said cynically , “should expect this sort of thing.” (See this picture).
“Show me or draw me a Nazi gas chamber!” That was Faurisson’s simple request. The Pyramids of Egypt, roughly 4500 years old, are still available for inspection. Gas chambers, built a little over 70 years ago, are not. Why not? Where have the gas chambers gone?
No one has been able to demonstrate the existence of a single authentic gas chamber. Not one gas chamber has ever been produced as evidence that 6 million Jews were killed by the Germans, most of them in gas chambers. What is more, the general public don’t even know this. It is universally assumed that there are dozens of gas chambers dotted all around Germany and Poland when in fact there are none.
French author Paul Rassinier (1906-1967), pioneer of Holocaust revisionism, had toured Europe for years in search of somebody who was an actual eyewitness to the extermination of Jews in gas chambers during World War Two:
“. . . but be has never found even one such person. He found that not one of the authors of the many books charging that the Germans had exterminated millions of Jews during the war had ever seen a gas oven built for such purposes, much less seen one in operation, nor had one of these authors ever been able to produce a live, authentic eyewitness who had done so.” (See here)
For over 50 years, the staff at Auschwitz told visitors that the Auschwitz main camp gas chamber was original. Now it is admitted that the gas chamber is a reconstruction. The staff at Auschwitz had been lying to the public for half a century.
It is sobering to reflect that British historian David Irving—who probably knows more about the Holocaust than anyone alive today—was fined 30,000 marks ($21,000) for publicly stating what is now openly and authoritatively conceded: that the extermination gas chamber shown to tourists in Auschwitz was a mock-up or “dummy”. It had never gassed a single Jew. It had been built by the Russians after the war.
Between 1938 and 1945, the Austrian Jew and left-wing socialist Benedikt Krautsky lived in Dachau, Buchenwald and Auschwitz. He survived them all. After the war, he wrote a book called Teufel und Verdammte (‘Devil and Damned’) in which he claimed that 3.5 million Jews were exterminated at Auschwitz. We now know this to be untrue, since in 1989 the Soviet Union released official figures stating definitively that only 1.5 million people, not all Jews, had died at Auschwitz—a revision on the previously inflated 4 million figure of 1948. (See this picture)
However, when pressed for details by Rassinier, Krautsky admitted that “never at any time had he seen a gas chamber and that he had based his information on what others had ‘told him’.”
The reduced figure of 1.5 million dead Jews at Auschwitz was soon reduced to just under one million. Officially reduced. No reduction was made, however, to the overall figure of six million Jews who are said to have died in the Holocaust. The six million figure remain sacrosanct—unalterable and set in stone for all time, in complete defiance of the laws of mathematics:
6 million minus 3 million . . . equals 6 million!
Entire books have been written by Holocaust survivors giving sensational accounts of the horrors of Auschwitz. From start to finish, these books are pure fiction and fabrication. One such book is Olga Lengyel’s Five Chimneys: A Woman’s True Story of Auschwitz (2005), originally entitled I Survived Hitler’s Ovens. In this she makes the ludicrous claim that 24,000 Jews were gassed at Auschwitz every day.
The Romanian Jew Miklos Nyizli (1901-1956) went a bit further and made it 25,000 Jews gassed every day at Auschwitz. The chimneys never stopped belching black smoke. In his book Auschwitz: A Doctor’s Eyewitness Account, he claims to have seen the gas ovens himself, to have worked under Mengele carrying out horrific experiments on his fellow Jews under coercion, and to have witnessed a live victim, a young girl, still writhing under a mound of corpses in one of the gas chambers.
As noted elsewhere:
“According to this doctor at Auschwitz, 25,000 victims were exterminated every day for four and a half years. This would mean a total of 41 million victims at Auschwitz by 1945, two and a half times the total pre-war Jewish population of the world.” (See here)
Apologies to our readers. Link disabled. Ed
Today, international Jewry and the mainstream media they control refuse to discuss the details of the Holocaust with anyone who questions the event, because, they insist, the murder of 6 million Jews is “obvious.” Anyone who dares to doubt this “obvious” truth is now thrown into prison in 17 countries:
“Holocaust denial is already either implicitly or explicitly a crime in 17 countries, including Austria, Belgium, Canada, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Israel, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Switzerland and Romania.”
Italy is all set to be the 18th country to make Holocaust revisionism a crime. (See here)
2. Holocaust Fiction Presented as Fact
One of the earliest attempts to pull the wool over the eyes of the public was Jerzy Kosinki’s The Painted Bird (1965), a book that can be described as “sadomasochistic Holocaust horror fiction disguised as fact.” The book, now admitted to be a novel, purports to be an autobiographical account of young Jerzy’s wanderings as a child through rural Poland during World War II.
Wherever Jerzy goes, he encounters sadistic, sexually perverted Poles with an undying hatred of innocent, lamblike Jews like himself: Jews always on the run in a cruel, godless world of evil Christians whose only delight lies in killing Jews and raping Jewesses, preferably by hacking off their breasts—a recurrent motif in many of these Holocaust narratives.
What is particularly nauseating about this essentially pornographic book masquerading as history is the fact that, far from undergoing persecution at the hands of sadistic Polish peasants, Jerzy Kosinski and his family were treated with Christian kindness by all the Poles they encountered. They were protected by a Polish Catholic family, fed, clothed, cosseted, and at no time mistreated.
The New York Times, nevertheless, was to describe The Painted Bird as “one of the best indictments of the Nazi era, written with deep sincerity and sensitivity.”
Passed off as an autobiographical memoir, The Painted Bird, it turns out, was either a plagiarism or cobbled together by a ghost writer at Kosinki’s publisher. Apparently, at the time of writing the book, the degenerate Polish author could barely speak English. “Kosinski was in many respects a fake,” M.A. Orthofer, one of his acquaintances, noted. “He liked to pretend he was someone he wasn’t. He plagiarized and forged left and right.”
This vicious, sexually perverted novel, an example of Holocaust horror fiction at its worst, went on to become an international bestseller. Translated into several languages, it finally became a basic Holocaust text book, diligently studied in schools and universities throughout the world.

Let’s not waste our time discussing in unnecessary detail Misha Defonseca’s Misha: A Mémoire of the Holocaust Years (1997) or Herman Rosenblat’s Angel at the Fence: The Story of a Love That Survived (2009, “canceled before publication”, but still somehow available on Amazon).
In the first of these, translated into 18 languages and made into a movie, Misha treks 1900 miles across war-torn Europe in search of her Jewish parents and is adopted by a pack of kindly and compassionate wolves who help to keep her alive, maybe even suckling her at the breast. For four years, from the ages of seven to 11, the Jewish orphan lives on wild berries, raw meat and food stolen from farmhouses, occasionally teaming up with friendly wolves who are always delighted to see her and accompany her on her travels. Very charming, but pure fiction.
So why hoax the public? Well, ask the Jewish writers and publishers. They can always justify their lies by quoting the arch-liar Elie Wiesel:
“Some events do take place but are not true; others are [true], although they never occurred.”
— Elie Wiesel, 1968
In the second book, the author Herman Rosenblat finds himself imprisoned in Schlieben concentration camp. In 1944, he meets at the electrified perimeter fence of the camp a beautiful nine-year old Jewish girl who is pretending to be a Christian in order to survive in the nasty, Jew-hating world outside. Roma, for that is her name, initiates the relationship by shyly tossing him an apple over the fence. Herman becomes curiously attached to Roma, this angel of mercy, who continues to bring him food parcels for the next seven months. He is then transferred to another camp and loses touch with her.
In 1957, however, Herman finds himself in New York. Restless and lonely and looking for his soul mate, he decides to go on a blind date to Coney Island. And guess what? Yes, you guessed it! There she is, waiting for him—his girlfriend of long ago!—now a nubile maiden in her early twenties, Roma, ripe and ready for true love, just waiting for Herman to pop the question and gallop off with her into the sunset.
No, I kid you not. Hermann quite literally proposes to Roma two minutes into his blind date. “You’re crazy!” she tells him breathlessly. “How can you marry me when you’ve only known me for two minutes?”
Six months later, he is married to her.
Here is the happy couple, 48 years later—the blushing bride now a beatifically smiling pensioner aged 73.
It turns out that the entire book was a tissue of lies, but not before it was lauded to the skies on The Oprah Winfrey Show, where it was gushingly described by Winfrey as “the single greatest love story we’ve ever told on the air.”
As for Herman, he was gracious enough to apologize to the public for attempting to deceive them. He was, he claims, nevertheless impelled only by the most elevated of motives. “I wanted to bring happiness to people,” Herman explains nobly, “to remind people not to hate but to love. My motivation was to make good in this world.” (Quoted here)
Well, Herman certainly went on to “make good in this world”, despite his initial setback of having been outed as a total fraud. A $25 million film adaptation of the book, titled Flower of the Fence, is all set for production by Jewish film producer Harris Salomon of Atlantic Overseas Pictures. As far as Salomon is concerned, fiction presented as fact is not a matter for undue concern. Entertaining the masses, indoctrinating them with Holocaust memes and making a box office hit, that’s all that really matters in the end.
It’s all good Shoah business. (See here)

Then there was Binjamin Wilkomirski’s Fragments (1996), a book described by the New York Times as “stunning” and by the Los Angeles Times as “a classic first-hand account of the Holocaust.” In 1996 the book won the National Jewish Book Award for Autobiography and Memoir; in Britain it received the Jewish Quarterly Literary Prize; and in France it was awarded the Prix Memoire de la Shoah.
Too bad the book turned out to be a complete hoax.
It is curious to note that Wilkomirski was outed as a charlatan by a real Jew, Daniel Ganzfried, himself the child of a Holocaust survivor. Normal Finkelstein huffs: “Half-fruitcake, half-mountebank, Wilkomirski, it turns out, spent the entire war in Switzerland. He is not even a Jew.” Equally scathing about Wilkomirski is Raul Hilberg, the most prestigious of Holocaust historians, who complains of the publishing industry’s “poor quality control” and who dismisses the book as “hovering between the highly unlikely and the utterly impossible.”
Despite the book’s fraudulence, it is still constantly lauded as an authentic document and is required reading in many university departments, particularly the one presided over by Barbara Lipstadt at Emory University.
For more on the Wilkomirski fraud, see this cult classic article by Holocaust revisionist author Prof. Arthur R. Butz: The Wilkomirski Affair: How a Holocaust Hoaxer was Rewarded for his Lies.
