Night #1 and Night #2—What Changes were Made and Why, Part Two

Elie Wiesel questioned in a California courtroom in 2008:

Q. And is this book Night that you wrote a true account of your experience during WWII?

A. It is a true account. Every word in it is true.

 

Elie Wiesel mans his table at a Jewish book fair in Austin TX in 2006. This was the year the new translation of Night by wife Marion came out, and Oprah Winfrey selected it for her book club.

 

 

In Part One, I established that the decision to rebrand Night into an autobiography was the reason for the new translation, in which necessary changes could be made to better 'fit' the story both to the real Elie Wiesel and the known facts of the Hungarian deportation.

Carolyn Yeager and her guest Tanstaafl of Age of Treason blog take on the problem of “fear of the Jews” and why Whites don’t think in terms of “What’s Good for Whites”  as Jews always think in terms of "What's Good for Jews?" Topics include:
  • Are Whites committing suicide, or is it slow genocide?
  • Did we do this to ourselves? Are we our own worst enemies?
  • We shouldn’t talk about them, but should just talk about ourselves;
  • Talking about Jews is negative;
  • Because Jews are so clever and capable, we want them on our side;
  • The real problem is X: liberalism, Zionism, feminism… some other ideology;
  • Talking about Jews makes us look stupid/crazy/evil;
  • Ignorance of the nature of the Jewish threat and fear of social ostracism.

Carolyn reads from The Fire: The Bombing of Germany 1940-1945 by Jörg Friedrich in the first half-hour, about part of the bombing in support of the Allied push into the Reich.

We live surrounded by treason which we often don't recognize. The information below, written by 'Kladderadatsch' at Codoh Forum, would have been a good addition to my radio program of February 13. The picture shows one of the monuments that make up the memorial in the Heide Cemetery to the February 13-14, 1945 firebombing of Dresden ... which is anything but a memorial to the German victims of this very real holocaust.

Fake Holohoax hero admits lie; fellow survivers furious

Published by carolyn on Thu, 2012-02-23 23:12

 

Remember Herman and Roma Rosenblat? They wrote their story to "make people feel good" ... and to make themselves rich.

This just-for-fun piece was created by me from a real news story that appeared on Yahoo News on Feb. 23, titled "Fake 9/11 hero admits lie; fellow firefighters furious." It was just too perfect a fit to pass up. Hope you enjoy it.   -Carolyn Yeager

    FDR at Yalta 1945; Elie Wiesel in New York 1968

There is only one sin committed against mankind and its generation, and that is the falsification of history. ~Friedrich Hebbels

Carolyn Yeager begins the program reading from The Fire: The Bombing of Germany 1940-1945 by Jörg Friedrich about the firebombing of Pforzheim, the clock-and-jewelry-making city of 65,000 near the Black Forest. The following topics were:
  • Brief history of "Presidents Day" in the U.S.;
  • Leftists in Germany continue to re-write and minimize the bombing of Dresden and other cities;
  • Yalta "Big Three" Conference of Feb. 4-11, 1945 mandated the mistake of "Unconditional Surrender" and was a give-away to the interests of the Soviet Union, both of which resulted in the death and enslavement of many millions of European civilians;
  • Adolf Hitler's purported 1919 connection with the "Reds," as put forth by Harold Marcuse, debunked;
  • Changes made to Elie Wiesel's book Night in 2006 are for the purpose of turning a novel into an autobiography.

Rodney calls in commenting on distortions about National Socialism.

Night #1 and Night #2—What Changes were Made and Why, Part One

On Tuesday, January 17, 2006, Amazon.com announced that it was changing the categorization of a new translation of Elie Wiesel’s Night from novel to memoir.

Amazon would also revise the editorial description of the original edition to make clear that they consider the book a memoir, not a novel. “We hope to make these changes as quickly as possible,” said Jani Strand, a spokeswoman for the online retailer. The day before, Oprah Winfrey had announced that Night was her latest book club choice, displacing her previous selection, James Frey’s A Million Little Pieces.

Left: Oprah Winfrey and Elie Wiesel pose together at the  Elie   Wiesel Foundation for Humanity Award Dinner at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel on May  20, 2007.  Winfrey was honored  with  the  Humanitarian   Award for “positively impacting people all over the world, especially children.”  One year earlier, she had selected Wiesel’s “Night” for her popular book club “pick” which sent it immediately to the top of the national bestseller lists.

 

The sudden switch from fiction to non-fiction caused some discussion and questions, which Strand brushed away by saying,  “Amazon.com’s data source for the Oprah Book Club edition of Night inaccurately classified the book as fiction.” She declined to offer details. The book, re-classified as “Autobiography” and blessed by Oprah, was already No.3 on Amazon.com as of that Tuesday afternoon! Wiesel, interviewed later with his literary agent Georges Borchardt, insisted they had never portrayed it as a novel.
