Murray Goldfinger's tale - Miraculously survived when "bullet bounced off his skull" and "American planes spotted his impending execution"
Article #1: "Holocaust survivor to share memories in Kristallnacht talk"
Extended version of Murray Goldfinger's comical tale:
Murray Goldfinger shows where he says he was shot while working in a coal mine in a concentration camp.
One time, Murray claims he was so hungry he at some dog biscuits. A Nazi found out, but didn't shoot him because of his good work. He was personally greeted by Mengele when he arrived at Auschwitz. A non-jewish doctor saved him from the bullet wound to his shoulder because he "didn't look jewish." For his operation, he was put to sleep, "unlike other Jews, who were not given any type of anesthesia." Mengele even came to check on his condition several times. Goldfinder was Death Marched to Buchenwald, but survived when the Americans came just before he was to be executed.
