Carolyn discusses the “Big Lie” that Elie Wiesel was ever in Buchenwald concentration camp and liberated from there in 1945. An article she is preparing for Elie Wiesel Cons the World, she hopes will be the definitive “stake in the heart” of this long-running fraud, along with all it’s related elements. Unfortunately this program was marred by a technical problem and then a Skype failure in the first hour, but the most important points made were:
- Hasidic Judaism, prevalent among Eastern European Jews, emphasizes, through oral stories, the acceptance of unbelievable occurrences, miracle-working, and fortune-telling (predicting the future);
- Historian Kenneth Waltzer of MSU has, since Oct. 2012, wiped off the Internet all his pages about Buchenwald and Elie Wiesel, his specialty for several years;
- Elie Wiesel’s claim in Night and in his memoir that he became deathly ill with food poisoning 3 days after the Buchenwald liberation (April 14), spending the next two weeks in hospital, wipes out Waltzer’s “evidence” for Wiesel’s presence in Buchenwald, including being in the photograph taken on April 16! (above);
- The account in Night of the date of arrival at Buchenwald, followed by the timing of “Father’s” death, is way off from the official records at Buchenwald Memorial;
- And much more.
