Another “Holocaust Survivor” Caught Lying

Plaques at Auschwitz

by Ian Mosley

This is actually starting to happen with some regularity now: Elderly Jews and others who want to get in on the Holocaust racket are inventing truly ridiculous stories and are being caught in their lies.

Ironically, attempts to document the Holocaust by getting survivor testimony before they die may be backfiring. A considerable number of Jews have actually given accurate accounts of daily life in Auschwitz or Dachau or Treblinka, which bear no resemblance to the mythical claims of exterminations. Are all those Jews anti-Semitic or guilty of Historical Revisionism and defaming the dead? Their stories sound very similar to the stories of Japanese, who were locked up in the US in concentration camps like Manzanar by the FDR regime.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt began the first wholesale imprisonment of enemy aliens by race during World War Two. Hitler began locking up Jews by race in retaliation only after Roosevelt locked up Japanese and first generation Italians and Germans. That part of history however is extremely “inconvenient” for the Allies, and is almost always swept under the rug. By 1945, the original reason for going to war, “saving Poland” was no longer relevant because Churchill and Roosevelt had sold out Poland to Communist occupation and slavery. A new reason to justify the war had to be invented so the Allies “discovered” at Nuremberg in 1946 that the concentration camps full of Jews “were really extermination camps” and the Holocaust story was born.

An article by Robert Faurisson shows how little freedom there is in much of the world regarding the Holocaust: “Writings such as this essay cannot be sold openly in my country. They must be published and distributed privately. In France, it is forbidden to question the Shoah — also called the ‘Holocaust.’ A law on the ‘freedom of the press’ enacted on July 13, 1990, makes it a crime to question the Shoah, in its three hypostases: the alleged genocide of the Jews, the alleged Nazi gas chambers, and the alleged figure of six million Jewish victims of the Second World War. Violators are subject to a prison term ranging from one month to one year, a fine of 2,000 to 300,000 francs ($333 to $50,000), an order to pay considerable damages, and other sanctions. More precisely, this law makes it a crime to question (‘contester’) the reality of any of the ‘crimes against humanity’ as defined in 1945 and punished in 1946 by the judges of the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg, a court established exclusively by the victors exclusively to judge the vanquished. Debates and controversies about the Shoah are, of course, still permitted, but only within the limits set by the official dogma. Controversies or debates that might lead to a challenging of the Shoah story as a whole, or of a part of it, or simply to raise doubt, are forbidden. To repeat: on this issue, even doubt is proscribed, and punished.”

That all sounds about as fair as the Treaty of Versailles. Someone should tell the French government that an unjust peace can come back to bite them.

While the testimony of honest Jews, who describe the routine happenings in the concentration camps wasn’t exactly what the pro-Holocaust side wanted, they can’t be too happy with the lunatic ramblings of some alleged Holocaust survivors, who are obviously angling for a Hollywood screenplay or book deal.

An article on Fox News reports: “Almost nothing Misha Defonseca wrote about herself or her horrific childhood during the Holocaust was true. She didn’t live with a pack of wolves to escape the Nazis. She didn’t trek 1,900 miles across Europe in search of her deported parents, nor kill a German soldier in self-defense. She’s not even Jewish.”

“Defonseca, a Belgian writer now living in Massachusetts, admitted through her lawyers this week that her best-selling book, ‘Misha: A Memoire of the Holocaust Years,’ was an elaborate fantasy she kept repeating, even as the book was translated into 18 languages and made into a feature film in France. ‘This story is mine. It is not actually reality, but my reality, my way of surviving,’ Defonseca said in a statement given by her lawyers to The Associated Press. ‘I ask forgiveness to all who felt betrayed. I beg you to put yourself in my place, of a 4-year-old girl who was very lost,’ the statement said.”

Hmmm, a four year old girl who was living with wolves and killing Germans. That’s almost as good as the famous, Mr. Friedman, who claimed he could tell who was being cremated at Auschwitz from the smoke. For anyone interested, this source from the Ernst Zundel trial notes “Many observers in the packed courtroom were left shaking their heads or fidgeting uncomfortably as Mr. Friedman, 56, then agreed that perhaps Jews were not being burnt in the chimneyed buildings. Over a two-day span, Mr. Friedman has testified repeatedly to seeing thousands of boys herded toward the crematoria, and of seeing trainloads of people unloaded near the ominous buildings. He told of how he and other internees even thought they could tell whether fat or skinny people, Ukrainians or Poles, were being cremated by looking at the color of the smoke.”

The Fox article continues “Defonseca, 71, has an unlisted number in Dudley, about 50 miles southwest of Boston. Her husband, Maurice, told The Boston Globe on Thursday that she would not comment. Defonseca wrote in her book that Nazis seized her parents when she was a child, forcing her to wander the forests and villages of Europe alone for four years. She claimed she found herself trapped in the Warsaw ghetto and was adopted by a pack of wolves that protected her.”

“Her two Brussels-based lawyers said the author acknowledged her story was not autobiographical. In the statement, Defonseca said she never fled her home in Brussels during the war to find her parents.”

“Defonseca says her real name is Monique De Wael and that her parents were arrested and killed by Nazis as Belgian resistance fighters. The statement said her parents were arrested when she was 4 and she was taken care of by her grandfather and uncle. She said she was poorly treated by her adopted family, called a ‘daughter of a traitor’ because of her parents’ role in the resistance, which she said led her to ‘feel Jewish.’”

“She said there were moments when she ‘found it difficult to differentiate between what was real and what was part of my imagination.’”

This woman told pathological lies about her past and should probably have been institutionalized, and yet because she claimed to be Jewish and her fantasies (that never happened) supported the Holocaust, she was believed without question and she has now produced a movie, that will no doubt be played to future gullible generations, some of whom will think it’s true.

Why are stories like these being accepted so quickly and embraced so fully? Maybe no one in France was willing to say out loud what a load of BS this woman’s story was for fear of being prosecuted under their Holocaust protection laws.

I tend to celebrate whenever a story like this is passed off as Holocaust lore because it is so far-fetched, it can’t help but wake up intelligent people to be skeptical of the Holocaust.
