Caller calls out Alex Jones on Holyhoax and as Controlled Op - Jones dodges, says he doesn't want to be associated with "jew-hating scum"

The jig is about up Alex.


CALLER (Fred in Florida): "I'd just like to air just a few grievances briefly, in a succinct, G-rated manner. I'm extremely T-d off. I wish you'd put up a Fred Toben banner, linked to the book "Did Six Million Really Die?", talk about the persecution of Ernst Zundel, question the Holohoax, and see how quickly you get arrested when you enter Canada, England, or Germany.

Now I notice you sometimes hang up quickly on articulate people who legitimately criticize you, then spend 5-10 or more minutes in a defensive tirade after you've disconnected them.

Seems you found a lucrative career in the Patriot business, making poor people running around chasing their tails, offering no real solutions, getting on the radio everyday..."

ALEX JONES: "Alright...let's stop right there. Let's stop right there. We're moving to try to get the states to declare sovereignty. We're moving to have the bankers arrested, and had Congressman on saying it 30 minutes ago. 35 minutes ago to be technical. We are moving to have an audit of the private Federal Reserve. We are moving to have the American people say 'no' to martial law.

You know, I have you on the show. We don't screen your call. You come on here, and you sit here and you insult, and you attack me, and you say all these terrible things about me and you say that I'm giving no solutions. I make a film that has cost me probably $80,000 or more to make, and I am going to release it for free on the internet, high-quality on, and you call in and say I'm bad. You call in and say I'm evil.

You know, here's the issue. I don't like the things Israel does, and I criticize Israel. But I also don't want to be associated with the type of scum that make it their lives to simply hate jews and everybody else. So you understand? I don't like what Israel is doing, and I don't like you either. It's very very simple, and I hope you realize that. You could have had your say, sir, but you had to spew lies so find another show.

Rosalie Simon's Holocaust™ tale - Another jew took her place in gas chamber, at 12 yrs old just "ran away" from Auschwitz, "somehow" escaped

Dr. Mengele personally sentenced Rosalie, then 12 years old, to die.

Rosalie still has a vision of Mengele, and saw her mother sent to the gas chamber.

When Rosalie was set to go to the gas chamber, another jewish woman volunteered to take Rosalie's place.

But that wasn't good enough for Rosalie. A jewish camp worker told her to run. So she did. And it worked. She escaped!

Her mother and brother were holocausted at Auschwitz. But her four older sisters and father survived the Holocaust.

It vas a miracle!

Holocaust survivors and their friends and family dance during a Hanukkah-time luncheon Dec. 16 at Jewish Family Services of Atlantic County in Margate. The luncheons have been held monthly for about the past eight years.

Holocaust survivors gather monthly to avoid topic

Many go years without talking about experiences during World War II, peers, family members say

By MARTIN DeANGELIS, Staff Writer | Posted: Saturday, December 26, 2009

MARGATE - Six million murders don't really make for great light lunchtime talk.

So the few dozen people who usually come to the monthly lunches at Jewish Family Services of Atlantic County mostly do not talk about the one key thing they have in common: They all survived the Holocaust, the Nazi murders of those estimated 6 million Jews in World War II.

Bethanie Gorny, of Linwood, who helped start the "survivor socials" eight or so years ago, remembers asking the group if they would like to invite a poet who writes about the Holocaust to be the speaker at one of their lunches.

"They said, 'No - too sad. ... Too depressing,'" Gorny said at this month's lunch. "They want to be together, ... but they don't want to relive it."

So the December get-together was far from sad, featuring a long string of Hanukkah songs led by Bob Seltzer and his guitar. The Hanukkah party also featured some of the elderly survivors dancing their way around the JFS boardroom, linking arms and twirling in a circle that grew as more dancers joined in.

Some survivors never talked about what they went through for decades after they were liberated, their children say. They apparently tried to leave their pasts in the past and not tell friends or even family in their new country how close they had come to being added to the tragic count of one of history's worst crimes.

Jack Gorny, Bethanie's husband, says he knew little of what his parents went through in the war because they did not talk about it to him or his brother. Only after his wife started getting together regularly with his mother - by then, Eva, Jack's mother, was in her mid-80s - did he start hearing his mom's Holocaust story.

"I learned it through Bethanie, because she'd come back and tell me," Jack Gorny said.

Silent no more

Gail Rosenthal, director of the Holocaust Resource Center at The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey and one of the regulars at the monthly lunches, says Jack Gorny's story comes with many names in many versions.

"Even today, there are people who don't want (anybody) to know that they're survivors," Rosenthal said.

But many of the people at these lunches went public as Jews who lived through the Holocaust after a coalition from Rosenthal's center and the JFS put out a call about 10 years ago for survivors. The mission then was to keep the survivors up to date on the possibility of reparations payments for them. But during their search, the searchers learned that there were desperately poor people who had been through the concentration camps living right around Atlantic County.

That led to a fundraising campaign to help those needy survivors, which raised $125,000 on short notice. And that fund led, in part, to these lunches - although the guests generally pay for their own meals.

And even if the Holocaust is not the standard topic of talk at their get-togethers, all the guests of honor have stories burned into their memories of how they survived the Nazi extermination efforts - and painfully often, how their loved ones did not.

Rosalie Simon, of Margate, put down her turkey sandwich at the latest lunch to talk about Dr. Josef Mengele - the infamous "Angel of Death" to inmates of the equally infamous Auschwitz concentration camp - personally sentencing her to die.

"I was too young," said Simon, 78. "In his opinion, I was unable to work because I was just 12 years old."

Simon saw Mengele's face and acknowledged that "I still have a vision of him." She also saw her mother sent to the gas chamber. Rosalie was "hysterically shaken" and crying, and another woman - whose child also had been sentenced to die - volunteered to take Rosalie's place in the gas chamber. The woman apparently chose dying with her child over living without.

"I was let off. A Jewish girl (forced to work at the camp) ... told me to run," Simon said, and somehow, through luck, she met up with her four older sisters. They all managed to survive the war, and her father did also. But her mother "was killed that same day, along with my brother," Rosalie said. Her brother was just 13, apparently also considered too young to work.

Rosalie never was one of the secret survivors, the people who tried to hide their Holocaust experiences when they got to their adopted country. There were parts that were too painful for her to talk about, especially to her own children, but after she told her story to a documentary crew, the kids learned the details that way. Still, she knows it would have been pointless to try to suppress or ignore the memories.

"This is going to live with us forever," she said, before going calmly back to her sandwich. "We cannot leave it behind. We live with it every day."

Always a reunion

The lunch group acts as a monthly reunion for its members now, but the hosts say they have seen some of their guests shocked into tears when they ran into people they haven't seen for years. That can be 65 or even 70 years for those reunions - since the Nazis drove the people from their homes in eastern Europe, or since they were forced together after that in the death camps.

Joe Rosenberg, 80, moved to Margate last year, but he lived most of his life around Bridgeport, Conn., after being liberated from Auschwitz - he can still recite from memory the camp serial number tatooed on his arm. He knew some Holocaust survivors in Connecticut, he said, but he had never heard of them holding regular gatherings until he moved down here.

He can tell his story to the people he meets at the JFS lunches and know they will understand, or he can listen to their tales and know what they went through. But, he said, he likes the fact that for the most part, "These lunches are just to get together," not to go back over the worst days of their lives.

Cyla Kowenski, of Atlantic City, one of the unofficial leaders of the group, also is happy just to be able to talk to people who share her experience. But because that shared background ended so long ago, the crowd for these lunches is already old, and getting older every month.

"You know, it's getting to be less and less Holocaust survivors," said Kowenski, who still prefers speaking Yiddish over English when she has the chance. "And this lunch is getting less and less (guests). But they say that if there's just one survivor left, they'll still have the lunches."

But of course, nobody in the group looks forward to being that last person at the table. Because it's the chance to be among other survivors that is the main draw of the monthly meals - even if the people don't care to spend that much time in the present talking about the horrors they shared in their pasts.

Jewish-controlled Hungarian Government Criminalizes Holyhoax Denial

Even constitutional protections for freedom of speech didn't stop them. Is America next?

Hungary criminalises holocaust denial

Tuesday, 23 February 2010

Hungary's parliament approved a bill making Holocaust denial punishable by up to three years in prison, but the measure may be unconstitutional.

Politicians passed the bill submitted by Attila Mesterhazy, the prime ministerial candidate of the governing Socialist Party, by 197-1, with 142 abstentions.

Earlier attempts to ban Holocaust denial were rejected by the courts for infringing on freedom of speech. Efforts to modify the Constitution to ensure the bill's legality also failed.

Mr Mesterhazy's proposal was backed by the Socialists and most of the Alliance of Free Democrats, a former coalition partner. Most members of Fidesz, the main centre-right opposition party, and their allies, the Christian Democrats, abstained after Fidesz's wish to also include the denial of Nazi and Communist crimes in the bill was rejected.

Free Democrat Gabor Horn, who voted in favour of the bill, questioned the timing of the Socialists' proposal and wondered why a similar effort by his own party a few months ago was not accepted.

"The difference is that six months ago there was no campaign," Mr Horn said.

Parliamentary election will be held in April and polls show Fidesz leading the Socialists by a substantial margin. Jobbik, a relatively new far-right group accused by critics of racist views, is expected to easily clear the five % threshold needed to enter parliamentary.

Hate speech and incitement to violence against minorities is already a crime in Hungary, but the new bill adds "denying, questioning or making light of the Holocaust" to the penal code.

Karl Rove to Tea Party: "Ditch the cranks and conspiracy nuts" - Tea Party to Turd Blossom: "Conspiracy Nuts" Founded this Party, Your Day is Done

Rove: Tea Party groups must cut off cranks

Published: Feb. 18, 2010

WASHINGTON, Feb. 18 (UPI) -- The U.S. tea party movement must separate itself from "cranks and conspiracy nuts," Republican pundit Karl Rove said Thursday in an opinion piece.

Rove, President George W. Bush's deputy chief of staff and chief political adviser, also said the movement and the Republican Party should not join forces.

"The tea party movement will be more effective than it otherwise would be if it refuses to allow itself to become an appendage of either major political party," Rove said in an op-ed piece in The Wall Street Journal.

Rove warned the movement could be co-opted by third parties. He said the leadership includes a "small fraction" of people frustrated by failing to win office in the Democratic or Republican parties.

"If tea party groups are to maximize their influence on policy, they must now begin the difficult task of disassociating themselves from cranks and conspiracy nuts," he said. "This includes 9/11 deniers, 'birthers' who insist Barack Obama was not born in the U.S., and militia supporters espousing something vaguely close to armed rebellion."

ATTN Karl Rove, Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, and other neo-con Establishment hacks: 9/11 truthers and right-wing Militia types founded the Tea Party.

Independents and Tea Party a "small fraction"?? Oh, like how the overwhelming majority of Massachusetts voters in the election a few weeks ago were registered Independents? The Sheeple are abandoning the Republicans/Democrats, and are awake to NWO/Establishment shenanigans.

So STFU, and GTFO. Your time is running out.

Oh, and Ron Paul...that goes for you too...peddler of the 9/11 official story. We know you're a fraud and Judas Goat. And where did all that money bomb money go?

"Cover Up In Oklahoma" - The 1995 Bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City an Obvious False Flag

Cover-Up In Oklahoma uses eyewitness accounts, expert testimony and extensive 'live' local newscast footage to prove the 'truck bomb' scenario promoted by the government and the mainstream media does not fit the facts. The video shows:

* The damage sustained by the Murrah Federal building could not have been produced by a bomb on the street without additional charges placed on or near internal structural columns.

* The initial news coverage, supported by statements from state, federal and local government officials, described the removal of multiple unexploded bombs from inside in the Murrah Federal building.

* Blast debris was blown out and away from the Murrah Federal building not into it, as would occur with a truck bomb on the street.

* The truck-bomb 'crater', described in the national media, appears to have been an outright hoax.

* Murrah bombing survivors experienced multiple blasts and describe events consistent with the placement of explosives both on the street and inside the Murrah Federal Building.

The presence of bombs within the Murrah Federal building raises disturbing questions about who might have had the access needed to place bombs inside a protected Federal building.

In Testimonial of Murrah Bombing Survivor: Jane Graham a federal government employee and the head of her local union describes unfamiliar workmen inside the building, days before the blast. These workmen had architectural plans, wiring and other materials, that fit the description of explosives. Some of these unfamiliar workmen were in GSA attire. Ms. Graham has been unable to get the government to either identify these workmen or to act upon her testimony, which undercuts the government's 'truck bomb' story.

Jerry Longspaugh, the producer of this video, notes, "Cover-Up In Oklahoma is significantly comprised of broadcast video footage that was recorded in the homes of citizens all across the country...due to the origin of the video footage within Cover-Up In Oklahoma, some of it is of marginal technical quality...viewers are urged to concentrate on extracting the abounding content of suppressed information rather than to be sidetracked by any shortcomings of superficial technical quality."

Joe Stack

"I can only hope that the numbers quickly get too big to be white washed and ignored that the American zombies wake up and revolt; it will take nothing less. I would only hope that by striking a nerve that stimulates the inevitable double standard, knee-jerk government reaction that results in more stupid draconian restrictions people wake up and begin to see the pompous political thugs and their mindless minions for what they are. Sadly, though I spent my entire life trying to believe it wasn’t so, but violence not only is the answer, it is the only answer. The cruel joke is that the really big chunks of shit at the top have known this all along and have been laughing, at and using this awareness against, fools like me all along." -Joe Stack

Putin tells Netanyahu that Russia will build a HolyHoax museum; In return, Netanyahu says Khazaria/Shitzrael will erect a monument to the Soviet army

Also, Netanyahu says Khazaria is not planning a war against Iran. Ha!

The monument to the Soviet butchers is scheduled to be completed in time for Putin's scheduled trip to Khazaria next year to mark the 66th anniversary of the end of World War II in Europe.

Why celebrate the 66th anniversary?...mythical 6 million, hexagram "star of david", 666...channeling Lucifer

Netanyahu in Moscow: Israel not planning war

By Associated Press, Haaretz Service

Prime Minister responds to Iranian claims that his government is eyeing a 'spring or summer offensive'.

Israel is not planning any sort of war, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Tuesday following talks with Russian leaders in Moscow.

"Israel is not planning any sort of war," he told journalists following a meeting with Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.

Netanyahu was apparently responding to claims made earlier in the day by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who reportedly accused Israel of "planning a spring or summer war".

"It was the Iranians who began talks with Syria on this issue and they are using all sorts of manipulations," Netanyahu said.

He added: "It would not surprise me if Iran's behavior is a direct result of the growing international debate on sanctions against Iran at the UN Security Council."

In a recent telephone conversation, Ahmadinejad reportedly told his Syrian counterpart Bashar Assad that if Israel goes to war, "we need to put an end to the Zionist regime once and for all".

Earlier on Tuesday, Putin told netanyahu that Russia would build a Holocaust remembrance museum.

In return, Netanyahu said Israel would erect a monument to the Soviet army, to be completed in time for Putin's scheduled trip to Israel next year to mark the 66th anniversary of the end of World War II in Europe

Russia, which was allied to Germany until the Nazis invaded it in 1941, hopes to erase any doubt about the Soviet Union's role in the allied victory.

Meanwhile, Netanyahu appeared to be making progress toward the main goal of his visit - persuading Russia to back new international sanctions against Iran.

Israeli officials traveling with the prime minister said Russian President Dmitry Medvedev had made "harsh statements on the Iranian issue, the likes of which we've never heard from him".

Russia also reportedly agreed to delay the delivery of advanced S-300 anti-aircraft missiles to Iran, another key Israeli request.

"Epic Beard Man" Beat Down - 67 yo bearded White Man Whips Ass of Black Thug on Oakland, CA Transit System

Going viral all over...too good to not pass along.

Some typical Afro-American shit-talking pussy thug-wanna-be picks a fight with an old man, now being called "Epic Beard Man", on the Oakland, CA transit system, and gets his ass beat -- leaving him spitting up blood and asking them to "bring da amba-lamps". Some "sista" filmed the whole incident, and female groids egged on the thug saying "say it again pinky...beat his white ass".


and if you literally want to lyao...

This incident is a microsm of life in America. Hood-rat, 70 IQ negroes with unwarranted puffed-up bravado from years of JewMedia propaganda telling them they are "gangsta" and "whitey" is "weak", exhibiting their outright hatred for "whitey" for all the past "injustices."

The female negroids are calling for their "brotha" to "kick whitey's ass"...but then when whitey actually kicks the ass of their "strong brotha", suddenly they want to press charges. And the negro was the one who instigated the confrontation. No hypocrisy there. Then they steal the white man's bag to boot.

I think Epic Beard Man has been arrested for the incident....for what amounts to self defense. Haven't heard if the Negro buck is in jail. If the incident wasn't filmed/documented, they'd probably get away with convicting the old man of a "racist hate crime."

These completely delusional and blatantly hypocritical negroids would probably tell you straight-faced that "they's ain't racists", but "the Old Bearded 'Cracka' probably is racist", and "we's didn't steal his bag." Even when they were stupid enough to upoad the video to the internet with the evidence contained therein for all to see.

It'll be a cold day in hell before Tyrone is charged with a "hate crime" for attacking this man, or the female groids are castigated as "racists" by the JewMedia for yelling out "kick whitey's ass!", or the she-gorilla is charged for stealing the man's bag.

But it looks like "whitey" is going to have the last laugh.

Rachel Levy's Holocaust tale - Escaped the Auschwitz gas chamber by hiding behind people carrying soup

The story is that Rachel's mother, brother, and two sisters were immediately gassed upon arriving at Auschwitz.

Then one day Mengele payed her a visit and picked her for the gas chamber.

But the gas chamber was right next to the kitchen, so Rachel managed to sneak behind some people carrying soup and escape.

The Germans then apparantly just forgot to gas Rachel.

It was a miracle.

Rachel did not speak of her tale for 50 years. Now she tells her story to youngsters in England.

Holocaust survivor Rachel Levi tells Brindishe School pupils, about her harrowing experiences in Auschwitz LC6494

The nightmares never go away

News Shopper
Sunday 21st January 2007
By Louise Tweddell

THE Holocaust may be history but as the annual remembrance day approaches, mental wounds remain open for one survivor.

BEFORE German and Hungarian forces invaded Czechoslovakia in March 1939, life was idyllic for Rachel Levy, her parents and four siblings.

The Orthodox Jewish family, whose village nestled in the Carpathan Mountains, had little idea of the trauma to come.

Restrictions were imposed on Jewish families. Schooling and property ownership was banned.

In 1942, Rachel's father Solomon, then aged 40, was torn from the family and sent to work for the occupying forces.

Two years later Rachel - who now lives in Bromley - was captured along with her mother Shlima, aged 37, her elder brother Chaskel, 16, younger brother Ben-Zvi, three, and two younger sisters, Eta, eight and Rivka, 10.

With 100 other Jewish villagers they were herded on to trains destined for the infamous Nazi concentration camp Auschwitz in Poland.

Calmly recalling events leading to her capture, the grandmother-of-two, who was 14 at the time, said: "Our neighbours had been hiding us in the woodland but they were threatened with execution and forced to give us up.

"The troops were terrifying. We were crammed into trucks with no food, drink or sanitation.

"When we got off the train, the Gestapo officers were waiting.

"They separated children and older women and my older brother was taken to the men's camp.

"It was the last time I ever saw my mother, sisters and younger brother.

"They were taken straight to the gas chambers. I was totally alone."

Now 76, the mother-of-two added: "It's still painful and fresh in my mind after all these years.

"I was just bewildered. I didn't know what was going on."

During her imprisonment, Rachel was visited by the 'Angel of Death', Dr Josef Mengele, who chose which people would be sent to the gas chambers, and which would be sent to work.

Rachel said: "He picked me (for the gas chamber).

"I was numb and then I was outside the chamber knowing it would end beyond the gates.

"It was next to the camp's kitchen and I managed to get behind people carrying soup and escaped back to camp."

There was little to do in camp and Rachel added: "We talked about food mainly, because we were so hungry."

In January 1945, the Soviet Army forced the Germans to retreat from Poland, so Auschwitz was cleared and prisoners were marched to Belsen, Germany.

Rachel said: "We marched for 21 days without food and we scavenged the fields for things to eat.

"People died on the way. Some were shot for not keeping up and others could not continue.

"When we reached the camp, it was the worst thing I've seen."

At Belsen, Rachel found her mother's younger sister, also called Rachel, but she was severely ill.

She remembered: "We were lying on the floor covered in lice and picking them off our skin.

"There were dead bodies all over the ground. Nobody was buried, they just threw the new bodies on top of the old ones."

A devastated Rachel watched as her aunt was added to the piles a few days after their reunion.

In April 1945, the British Army liberated Belsen and eventually Rachel was taken to Prague, then Bratislava, where she finally found some reason for hope.

She said: "One day I heard footsteps and sat up in bed and my brother came in.

"I was stunned; it was such a special moment."

With the help of the Central British Fund for World Jewish Relief, Rachel and Chaskel were among 700 youngsters flown to the UK.

The pair were taken to Belfast in February 1946 and shortly afterwards moved to south London.

Rachel, who married Phin, a Jew from Brixton, in 1953, trained as a dressmaker and worked in London's West End.

Chaskel trained as an accountant and became director of a financial company before he died of tuberculosis in 1976, aged 48.

Rachel never discovered what happened to her father.

As part of Holocaust Memorial Day next Saturday, Rachel has told her story to youngsters from Brindishe Primary School, Wantage Road, Lee Green.

The pupils will perform a drama about her life next Sunday at The Broadway Theatre, Catford Broadway, Catford.

Children from Lewisham schools including John Stainer, Ashmead, Fairlawn and Rushey Green will also perform.

Rachel did not speak of her experience for almost 50 years and said: "The nightmares don't go away, but they lessen slightly.

"There are so few of us left to talk about it and it's important people know what happened."

A memorial service will be held next Saturday at Catford Synagogue, Crantock Road, Catford, between noon and 1pm.

For tickets to the theatre performance, call 020 8690 0002.

Tickets to the memorial service are free. Call 020 8314 8636.

Alex Jones Crashes Austin Pro-Gun Rally, Then Lies About It On His Show

Transcript of audio from Alex Jones radio show, 1/27/2010:

ALEX JONES: "I really appreciate Darwin Beddicker. I really twisted his arm to come to the protest on Monday, to get him up here from San Antonio. And he wanted me on air right now to thank all my listeners that came out to that event and made it such a success.

They're not gonna stop. They think this their town. They think the people of Austin belong to them. That is the City Council, the ATF, and the Police Leadership. The average cop out there is disgusted by this. The reason I know is my Dad came to the protest, and I didn't notice him, because the whole time I was there I had like COINTELPRO poking me and getting in my face. And I sure some of them were because later I found out about a meeting afterwards with some people we know are connected to some operations -- about how they want to get me, and go after me. It's a whole other subject, but it borders on illegal. But, uh, luckily we had people inside who found out about that, and called me about it. But separate issue. Any time you come out for the Second Amendment, you're gonna have disrupters who are gonna try to spin things and do that. But they failed miserably."

Hunter of "Torah scrolls that survived the Holocaust", Rabbi Menachem Youlus, exposed as a fraud- Not a single name, date, document to support claims

Rabbi Menachem Youlus, so-called "The Indiana Jones of Torah Scribes," claims he has rescued over 1,000 sacred Torah scrolls that "survived the Holocaust" -- including scrolls he claims he dug up from mass graves in the Ukraine, unearthed at Auschwitz, and even one he stumbled upon while on a tour of Bergen-Belsen when he fell into a hole in the corner of the floorboards of one of the buildings, and felt around with his hands finding a scroll.

The scrolls are always remarkably in good condition despite allegedly being buried in the ground for over 60 years. And the Rabbi is unable to provide a single name, date, photograph or document to support the claims of the origin of any of his scrolls.

The jews who bought Torah scrolls from Rabbi Youlus have now discovered that he is a fraud, and are pissed they were conned out of thousands of dollars. If Rabbi Youlus was swindling the "goyim", the jews probably wouldn't have said a word, but he was swindling his own people. Jewry wrestled with whether to expose the Rabbi as a con artist, or suppress the truth and "serve the greater good" of supporting the official Holocaust story. They have apparantly figured the case of Rabbi Youlus is too glaring of a hoax, and it would be better to announce through their press that the Rabbi is a fraud, than to suppress it and have their enemies expose the truth.

Rabbi Menachem Youlus regales believers with dramatic stories of Holocaust-era scrolls he says he has rescued and restored. But are his tales true?

Rabbi to the Rescue: Menachem Youlus is called the Indiana Jones of Torah recovery and restoration. But there are doubts about his thrilling tales.

The Washington Post

In October of 2001, Robert Kushner of Pittsburgh received an e-mail that got his heart racing. His nephew had come across a notice in a Jewish genealogical newsletter about a mass grave discovered outside the Ukrainian town of Kamenets-Podolsk. Along with the remains of Jews killed in the Holocaust, the grave contained two sacred Torah scrolls, one of them wrapped in a "Gestapo body bag." A Maryland man had bought one Torah, the newsletter said, but the second scroll needed a home.

Kamenets-Podolsk was the town from which Kushner's father had emigrated in 1920. One of his father's sisters never left, and Kushner, 74, wondered, "Could her body be one of those buried in that mass grave?" He contacted the man who had made this horrific yet miraculous find: Rabbi Menachem Youlus, co-owner of the Jewish Bookstore of Greater Washington. Kushner and his wife traveled to the bookstore in Wheaton and found themselves charmed by the slightly built, chatty Orthodox rabbi.

"We literally fell in love with him," Kushner says. "He exudes honesty, integrity. He's as pleasant as could be."

Youlus showed the Kushners the antique scroll and recounted his adventure: While traveling in Ukraine, Youlus was approached by an unnamed farmer who offered to sell him a handwritten map. As Kushner remembers the story, the farmer said he had been told by his father that if he ever encountered anyone wearing a skullcap, he should show him the map. The farmer led Youlus to his land, which had a pigsty built on a foundation of Jewish gravestones. Seeing Hebrew writing on the map, Youlus bought it and went off with the farmer to a spot marked on it. The rabbi started digging and uncovered a mass grave containing the bones of more than 200 people, as well as two relatively intact Torahs. He and his driver reburied the human remains and marked each individual grave with verses from the Book of Psalms. Months later, Youlus -- who is also a Torah scribe -- restored the Torahs to kosher condition so they could once again be read in synagogues.

Hearing this story, Kushner felt moved to buy the Torah, which was still for sale. He'd grown up poor. His immigrant father couldn't afford the big donation some synagogues used to request for the privilege of reciting Torah blessings during the High Holy Days. Choking up, Kushner recalls: "When this Torah became available, I said, 'You know what? I can't think of a better way to honor my father's memory.' " Youlus told the Kushners that several people had expressed interest in the Torah, but the scribe wanted them to have it, because "that's where your father was born; that's where his siblings were born." Kushner paid $15,000 for the scroll, which he donated to his synagogue, Beth El Congregation in Pittsburgh. He fondly remembers the dedication. "It was a beautiful ceremony. I spoke, my son spoke, through tears." Later, his grandson read from the Torah at his bar mitzvah.

For something buried underground for 60 years, the Torah was in remarkably good condition. The rabbi never showed Kushner any photos of the excavation or of the scroll before its restoration, or the farmer's map. Kushner, a retired lawyer, acknowledges that he was initially skeptical. "You know, the story itself is so bizarre. ... I did not know Menachem at that time, and I guess there was something in my voice," Kushner says. At Youlus's suggestion, Kushner called an Orthodox rabbi in Pittsburgh for a character reference. Kushner's sister called family friends in Maryland who also vouched for Youlus. When Kushner told his own rabbi about the background checks, the rabbi's reaction was: "You know what? You've done far more than you need to do. If a sofer [Torah scribe] tells you a story, you can believe him."


Rabbi Menachem Youlus has found scores of enthusiastic believers and willing buyers. Dubbed "The Indiana Jones of Torah Scribes," Youlus has regaled congregations and the media (including this newspaper in 2004) with tales of cloak-and-dagger adventures in Central and Eastern Europe. The 48-year-old rabbi from Baltimore says he has found Torahs hidden in walls, buried in the ground, piled in basements of monasteries, even under the floorboards of a concentration camp barracks. He says he has been beaten up, threatened with jail in Siberia, and has had to smuggle out Torahs in false-bottom suitcases.

"I guess you can say I'm on a mission," explains Youlus, who wears a neatly trimmed beard and the white shirt, black trousers and black yarmulke favored by the ultra-Orthodox. His stated mission, supported by the nonprofit Save a Torah Inc., is to recover, repair and resettle sacred scrolls from Jewish communities destroyed by the Nazis. His rescued Torahs have found their way into more than three dozen congregations in the Washington area and beyond. Billionaire investor David Rubenstein, 60, co-founder and managing director of the Carlyle Group, purchased two of these scrolls. He says, via e-mail, "I donated these Torahs to the synagogues so their congregants could have the sacred experience of reading scripture from scrolls that had survived the Holocaust."

The Torah is Judaism's most sacred text -- the first five books of the Hebrew Bible -- painstakingly handwritten on animal-skin parchment according to a strict set of rules. It is venerated as the core of Jewish worship and the basis for centuries of Jewish scholarship. Jews treat the Torah with the respect due an important person, standing when it is taken out of its ark and is carried in a synagogue. There's a tradition among some Jews of ransoming stolen Torahs, and scrolls damaged beyond repair are buried in a cemetery.

The stories Youlus has told over the years resonate so powerfully because they meld this centerpiece of the Jewish religion with the cataclysm of the Holocaust, providing a reassuring sense of continuity and hope. As survivors, Youlus's Torahs are brought out for Holocaust Remembrance Day, they're used to teach lessons in religious schools, and for many people, such as Robert Kushner, they have become part of a deeply personal family narrative. Youlus says in a video on the Save a Torah Web site: "Every single Torah that I rescued has a story."

At her white clapboard home in Somers, N.Y., Rabbi Shoshana Hantman, 51, takes a large scroll out of a custom-made, portable ark in her living room, rolls it out on her dining room table and shoos away her Siamese cat as it threatens to tread on the sacred parchment. "This is our old guy," Hantman says, as she prepares to tell the story of the Torah that Youlus sold to her congregation at the time, the Reconstructionist Group of Southern Westchester.

Her tale is almost identical to the one Kushner says Youlus told him. Hantman says she got in touch with Youlus in the summer of 2001 as she was preparing for her small worship group's first High Holy Day services. The member needed a Torah but couldn't afford the $25,000 or more for a new one. So she phoned Youlus and soon found herself captivated by his "angelic presence." "This was an Orthodox rabbi, you understand. Orthodox rabbis don't normally even speak to the likes of me," the clergywoman says. "He didn't only talk to me, he referred to me as 'rabbi.' So I already knew this was a special guy."

Youlus recounted how he had rescued the Torah -- one of a pair, Hantman recalls, that he discovered in the Ukrainian mass grave. The scribe offered the scroll to Hantman's congregation for $6,000. Hantman recalls that Youlus was finishing the Torah's restoration on Sept. 11. She remembers Youlus telling her that he was a member of a Jewish burial society and had to rush to the Pentagon to retrieve the remains of Jewish victims. "And in the middle of it, he [finished] this Torah," Hantman marvels.

The story of that Torah's rescue from the ashes of the Holocaust had special resonance that Rosh Hashanah, when smoke was still rising from Ground Zero. Several members of Hantman's worship group worked at the World Trade Center. Some would find an even closer connection to the story. Hantman recalls: "Once a gentleman came up and said his father was from Kamenets-Podolsk, and he just wanted to touch the scroll because it might have been his father's, and he had [lost] people. People have said that they felt -- you know, very mystical people -- that they felt emanations. ..."

Seated at a laminate table covered with scrolls in his bookstore -- the headquarters for his operation -- Youlus explains the spiritual charge he gets from supplying Torahs, new and restored, to congregations around the United States and overseas. "I've been to so many Torah dedications, and it never gets old," he explains, "because it's a chance to establish a special bond between God's chosen people and God." Around him, the Wheaton shop's two rooms overflow with books and Judaica: prayer shawls, menorahs, children's games, stickers and tchochkes. In the rear, several dozen antique Torah scrolls, many wrapped in black trash bags, lie on a set of shelves awaiting repair.

Customers, including local Jewish clergy, frequently interrupt Youlus, in person and over the phone. He greets everyone with a cheery, high-pitched "Hello" and punctuates the air with emphatic hand gestures. His life outside the bookstore is just as busy, he says: "Last week, I was in Europe once and on the West Coast twice."

As the store's clerk takes scrolls off the shelf and lays them gently on a table, Youlus eagerly describes the mechanics of being a scribe. He shows off turkey quills, used to write Torahs, bits of klaf (parchment) and explains the intense spiritual concentration required of his profession. Youlus says he uses high-tech infrared equipment to inspect the condition of the scrolls and "climate-controlled" ink to restore them. Touting his expertise in dating parchment, Youlus says he has studied with curators "in Europe," but pressed to say with whom he has studied, he won't give names. Ner Israel Rabbinical College in Baltimore confirms that Youlus graduated with a degree in Talmudic Law and was ordained in 1983. He also studied accounting at Towson State University.

On his Save a Torah promotional video, posted on the Web in 2007, Youlus says he has rescued 500 Torahs since he began his mission a quarter-century ago. The number Youlus gives on this spring afternoon in 2009 has soared to 1,100.

The fundraising video describes Youlus's rescue operation in dramatic fashion. While a violin plays a mournful tune, supporters give testimonials. The screen flashes archival photos of concentration camp barracks and piles of desecrated Torah scrolls. The message is clear: Make a donation so Youlus can parachute in, rescue these fragile survivors and breathe new life into the ancient text known as the Tree of Life.

One testimonial comes from Rabbi Leila Gal Berner of Kol Ami, a Reconstructionist community in Northern Virginia. Cradling a Torah from Youlus, Gal Berner, 59, relates its remarkable history. "There was a legend of a Torah scroll that had been hidden under the floorboards at Bergen-Belsen [the German concentration camp]. Menachem came to Bergen-Belsen on a tour and literally fell into a hole in the corner of the floorboards, felt something strange, suspected that this might be where it was. It was dug up. Indeed it was the Torah, fully there. After some negotiations, Rabbi Youlus was able to purchase the Torah." For Gal Berner, rescuing a scroll like hers means "that community didn't die when Hitler tried to kill it."

But Youlus's discovery at Bergen-Belsen comes as news to the historian at the camp museum. "I can definitely exclude that there could have been a find of the Torah scroll on the grounds of the Bergen-Belsen Memorial" in recent years, writes Thomas Rahe. In 1945, British troops burned down all the barracks to stop the spread of typhus.

Asked in the shop about his Bergen-Belsen adventure, Youlus at first jokes about his dumb luck -- being a "schlemiel" and literally stumbling on a holy treasure. Confronted with the camp historian's denial, he shoots back: "It's not Bergen-Belsen. ... She [Gal Berner] says it was Bergen-Belsen." Which camp was it? He can't remember: He says he has toured so many concentration camp sites. Why did he allow Gal Berner to tell this story on the video? He says he's never watched it.

Gal Berner -- a historian who has taught at leading universities -- stands by Youlus even after being informed of the facts and of Youlus's denial. In an e-mail, she skirts the question of what the scribe told her about the Torah's origins. "I believe that Rabbi Youlus is an honest man who is doing holy work," she says. "I believe that he must navigate complicated territory in order to find and rescue the Torah scrolls he finds."


In the spring of 2008, Central Synagogue, a prominent temple in Manhattan, dedicated another of Youlus's rescued Torahs. This one came with an iconic name attached. Youlus says he secretly unearthed it in Oswiecim -- the Polish town made infamous by its German name, Auschwitz. Oswiecim Jews, Youlus said, buried this Torah in a metal box in their cemetery to save it from the Nazis. More than six decades later, he told the New York Times, he located the scroll with a metal detector and dug it up. But it was missing four parchment panels. The local Jews removed these panels, he said, before burying the Torah, and later somehow spirited the fragments into the camp. Youlus says he placed an ad in a local newspaper offering to pay for parchment with Hebrew writing on it. Miraculously, a priest -- a former Auschwitz prisoner -- responded the very next day and sold him four panels that proved to be an exact match.

Central Synagogue's rabbi, Peter Rubinstein, acknowledges that he was initially baffled as to how the parchment had come into the camp. But he did not seek an independent appraisal or ask for documentation. Rubinstein says he ultimately trusted Youlus, and he trusted the man who had purchased the Torah and wanted to donate it to Central Synagogue.

That donor was David Rubenstein (no relation to the rabbi) of the Carlyle Group, the D.C.-based private equity firm. The billionaire philanthropist -- who has lent a copy of the Magna Carta to the National Archives -- was not a member of Central Synagogue. But he came well recommended by a congregant: Arthur Levitt, the former Securities and Exchange Commission chairman. "That's how the connection was made," Rabbi Rubinstein recalls. "That's how the world works." As he remembers, donor David Rubenstein "said he wanted exposure for the scroll in New York."

So with great fanfare, the Torah from Auschwitz was dedicated in New York on Holocaust Remembrance Day 2008. Months later, on the Jewish New Year, the congregation again took the Torah down from its imposing two-tiered ark. In his sermon, Rabbi Rubinstein repeated the story of the Torah's wondrous rescue from the killing fields of Oswiecim. Reflecting back on that homily, he says: "Remember, this was two days after the market dropped 700 points, and I was trying to talk about retrenching, not financial retrenching, [but] what are the things that are the anchors of our lives."

Reached for comment about the Auschwitz Torah, Poland's chief rabbi, American Michael Schudrich, responds in an e-mail: "I cannot confirm anything that Menachem has written. I do not know the people he is referring to." Youlus's discovery is also a mystery to Tomasz Kuncewicz, director of the Auschwitz Jewish Center, which cares for the Oswiecim cemetery, and to Dorota Wiewiora, head of the tiny Jewish community still living in the region. She is dismayed at the idea that someone would dig among human remains. And, Wiewiora adds, if such a Torah really was dug up, it would rightfully be the property of her community. "No one would sell it. It's not ethical."

Asked why no one in Oswiecim knew about his ad hoc archaeological dig, Youlus changes major details of the story he told Central Synagogue and the New York Times. He says the box containing the Torah was not made of metal, though he can't say exactly what the material was. Youlus says he simply took an educated guess as to where it was buried, hired a crew to dig and found it in the ground beyond the old cemetery walls. As for the priest who supplied the missing parchment panels, Youlus didn't find him through a classified ad. He says his great aunt -- friends with an unidentified Polish cardinal -- helped find the priest. What was the priest's name? "I have no idea," Youlus says. According to the Archdiocese of Krakow, the last local priest who survived Auschwitz died years before Youlus says he arrived on the scene in 2004.

In a 3-hour interview, Youlus is unable to provide a single name, date, place, photograph or document to back up the Auschwitz stories or any of the others. He says that until Save a Torah was founded in 2004, he kept no records. He refers all requests for documentation since then to the foundation's president, investment banker Rick Zitelman of Rockville.

But in a late December meeting at The Washington Post, Zitelman, 54, shows no documentation for any of the scrolls, despite requests. Zitelman says the only paperwork he gets from Youlus is an invoice the rabbi himself writes up for each Torah. He says Youlus does not submit any airline tickets or hotel receipts for overseas missions. So where does he think Youlus finds the Torahs? "It's my understanding these Torahs come from various locations, including monasteries, museums, antique shops, private owners and other places like that," he says.

Eastern European countries consider the scrolls their cultural property and severely restrict their export. Zitelman says, in a follow-up e-mail: "These Torahs do not belong to the people/organizations/museums/churches that hold them. They belonged to synagogues or Jewish communities or families that were destroyed or killed during the Holocaust. ... These stolen Torahs are no different than art that was stolen from Jews by the Nazis and others, and is now being returned to its rightful owners."

Many state museums and archives in Eastern Europe -- including some in former monasteries -- do hold hundreds of scrolls. And half a dozen major Jewish organizations, backed by the U.S. State Department, have been pressing governments in the region to return them to Jewish hands in an orderly fashion. Wesley Fisher, director of research for the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, is working on the issue. He acknowledges that the slow pace of negotiations "leads many people to think, 'Well, they should just be taken.' " But he says he believes the Jewish people should not "repeat theft," and with the revival of Jewish life in the region, it's "not a matter for individuals to decide in cowboy-like fashion" who should have these scrolls. Such decisions should be made in consultation with local communities, he says. Fisher adds: "I'm not aware that Save a Torah is actually trying to deal with Torahs that are held in government hands in the countries of Eastern Europe."

Jews in Ukraine report that Torahs periodically disappear from museum shelves -- sold privately by corrupt curators -- and end up overseas. Youlus is aware of these shadowy dealings: "I think that there is a gray market in some of these areas. And I am very, very careful whom I deal with." But he won't name the people with whom he deals, so, for now, the source of his old Torahs remains murky.

It's not hard to determine where most Holocaust Torahs in American synagogues come from. Most are on loan from a collection of Czech Judaica gathered at the Jewish Museum in Prague during World War II and later sold to a philanthropist in London. The wartime curators meticulously labeled the town of origin of each of those Torahs. Establishing the provenance of other scrolls, though, can be tricky. The text of the Torah is immutable. Scribes never sign their name, the date or the place where they have penned the scroll. Judging by the calligraphy, the parchment and sometimes the penmanship, experts can estimate within a few decades a scroll's age and region of origin. But even if a Torah is determined to have been written in Europe before the Holocaust, there is no way to tell simply by looking at it where it has been since it was written. It's not hard to find old Torahs for sale: Synagogues close; congregations consolidate and sell off scrolls. And many of the old scrolls come from either Eastern Europe or scribes who trained there. EBay has pages of listings. Some old scrolls for sale, indeed, may be survivors of vanished Jewish communities, but it's hard to say for sure.


What's also hard to ascertain is how the two Torahs Youlus says he found in a mass grave in Ukraine wound up in the hands of five different buyers.

The first was Martin Ingall, 50, of Potomac, who reported Youlus's discovery to the Jewish genealogical newsletter. Its August, 2001, issue states that Ingall, president of Technology Information in Rockville, bought one of the two Torahs and suggested that someone else might want the second. After reading this, Kushner then purchased what Youlus told him was the second scroll. But another Pennsylvania couple, Phyllis and David Malinov, also read the notice and felt a tug on their heartstrings. Phyllis, 71, knew her mother had immigrated from Kamenets-Podolsk. So the couple, a teacher and a physician, headed off to the Wheaton bookstore. After they told Youlus about their family connection to the town, David Malinov, 72, recalls, the scribe "was in favor of our receiving the Torah." They paid about $10,000, they say, for what Youlus told them was one of two Torahs, and took it back to their Jewish fellowship group in Pike County, Pa. Around the same time, the Pearlstone Conference and Retreat Center outside Baltimore, which caters to Jewish organizations, was looking for a Torah. The center's executive director, Carol Pristoop, wrote down the incredible story that Youlus told the Pearlstone donors, who paid $10,000 for the scroll. She saved her notes, which state the Pearlstone Torah is one of two found in a mass grave.

Hantman also remembers Youlus telling her that her Westchester County congregation was receiving one of two Torahs from the mass grave. Youlus declines to explain how five parties believed they had one of these two Torahs. But Zitelman says: "There's a total of eight Torahs -- two that were in the mass grave and six that were from the general community. I don't know what Rabbi Youlus said specifically to anybody."

When Hantman hears about the mystically multiplying Torahs, she pauses and says she has to gather her thoughts: "I hope you've read 'To Kill a Mockingbird.' At the end, a truth is concealed for the better good of the community. ... If there is any deception going on ... also think about what he's done that's good." She wrestles with what she has heard. "Destroying this man, if he is guilty of what you suspect, may very well be in service of the truth but in disservice of a greater truth," Hantman says. What, for Hantman, is the greater truth? "The Jewish reverence for the past, for heritage and for those who suffered and died because of the Nazis."

Clark University professor Deborah Dwork, co-author of a history of Auschwitz, says she has an "allergic reaction" to the notion of a greater truth, because, she says, such tales can play into the hands of Holocaust deniers. For her, the historical record must be "absolutely crystal clear. Anything that deviates from that one whit does the memory of the Holocaust a huge disservice," she says.

So why have so many of Youlus's customers accepted his dramatic rescue stories without evidence? Is it because he carries the title "Rabbi"? Or is it because so many unimaginable things did happen during the Holocaust? Perhaps, as sociologist Samuel Heilman says: "There's a sensitivity because of Holocaust denial. If you say some stories aren't true, you may have to say that all stories are not true. So best not to touch on a sensitive topic." Heilman -- who has written numerous books about Jewish communities and is a professor at City University of New York -- suggests that some American Jews feel guilty: "They didn't manage to rescue the people, so they rescue the Torahs." Dwork has her own theory: "The loss was so devastating that we crave tales of survival."


David Rubenstein does not want any lingering doubts about provenance to taint the Torah he donated to New York's Central Synagogue, or another scroll he donated to the Sixth & I Historic Synagogue in downtown Washington. Youlus said that Torah was read by inmates at the Dachau concentration camp. But the archivist at Dachau, Albert Knoll, says he has no record of a Torah being smuggled into the camp. After Rubenstein was told that experts questioned the stories about the Torahs, he hired noted Holocaust historian Michael Berenbaum, 64, to investigate. Berenbaum, a former director of the research institute at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, spent an hour and a half with Youlus, spoke with people in Poland and searched through archives and oral histories. "Based on Dr. Berenbaum's investigation," Rubenstein wrote in a September e-mail, "we cannot fully and unquestionably establish that the Torahs are what I had been led to believe." Rubenstein asked Berenbaum to find Torahs "whose Holocaust provenance is not in question. When such Torahs are located and secured, I will donate them to the synagogues -- to ensure they will have what I originally intended them to have." Since then, Berenbaum says, he has secured a replacement Torah for Central Synagogue from a Romanian collection recently transferred to Israel. Sixth & I will receive a scroll from Poland. The Carlyle Group reports that Rubenstein is also paying for the restoration of a historic building for Jewish youth in Poland "as a sign of goodwill and appreciation."

As for Youlus's Torah rescue stories, Berenbaum came to his own conclusion. "A psychiatrist might say they are delusional. A historian might say they are counter-factual. A pious Jew might call them midrash -- the stories we tell to underscore the deepest truths we live," he says. Midrash, in this context, refers to the ancient tradition of rabbis telling anecdotes and fables to convey a moral lesson. "Myth underscores the deepest truth we live," Berenbaum says.

But for Kushner, who to honor his father bought a Torah he believed was from a mass grave, "It's better that I should know the truth than I should go on the rest of my life believing in a myth."

Oskar Klausenstock's amazing Holocaust™ fairytale

Klausenstock's tale reads like a Hollywood script.

Oskar survived many close calls. Every four or five days, he had an experience where he thought he was going to die, but he miraculously survived.

The closest was when a Nazi soldier was counting off every 10th Jew to kill, and he was mistakenly counted as No. 10, but the Nazi guard caught the mistake, and Oskar was actually only number 9.

Another time he escaped and travelled hundreds of miles eastward through the Polish forests, crossed a heavily guarded river, and was rescued by Soviet soldiers.

He was once strafed by British Spitfire planes along with other laborers at an airfield.

Another time he escaped from the Germans by hiding in a hay bale.

Then another time he snuck into a group of American POWs being marched to a camp, falling behind the last guy in the line. When he tapped the man on the shoulder, he responded 'Holy sh--!,' The Americans gave him a coat to blend in.

After the war was over, Klausenstock served as an interpreter for the occupying U.S. Army, he even spent some time working for Gen. George Patton.

Klausenstock was the only one of 38 family members to survive the Holocaust.

Oskar Klausenstock served as a doctor in the U.S. Army from 1955-57.

Tiburon man recounts escapes during Holocaust

Marin Independent Journal
Brent Ainsworth
Posted: 01/26/2010

Wednesday is International Holocaust Memorial Day, which marks the 65th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz death camp.

Dr. Oskar Klausenstock of Tiburon never spent time in Auschwitz, but he vividly remembers the names of five camps where he did spend time: Plaszow, Gross-Rosen, Ganacker, Flossenburg and Dachau.

"There were several others," said Klausenstock, 87.

A retired radiologist/oncologist, Klausenstock sits in his comfortable Reed Ranch home and marvels that he survived so many close calls. The closest: when a Nazi soldier was counting off every 10th Jew to kill, and Klausenstock - then in his late teens - was No. 10.

"He counted sieben, acht, neun ... and then for some reason he looked at me and said neun again," Klausenstock said. "And the man next to me had to step out and be No. 10."

Klausenstock was the only one of 38 known family members that survived the war. Two aunts and one uncle escaped to Palestine before the war broke out.

"Dad's an amazing man," said Dan Klausenstock, 48, son of Oskar and Judy Klausenstock, who were married in 1952. "To overcome what he has experienced and still have a positive attitude and be upbeat about humanity at all, it amazes me."

Klausenstock was born in a tiny village in southern Poland. "My shtetl made the one in 'Fiddler on the Roof' look like a metropolis," he said. As a teen he apprenticed to a weaver and a furrier and played goalie for his school soccer team. All that changed on Sept. 1, 1939, when World War II began with the German blitzkrieg.
The area was quickly overrun and the apartment he shared with his mother and stepfather was ransacked. Jews were rounded up and detained.

In the first of his many escapes, Klausenstock received a break from an old soccer friend who had been recruited to work for the Germans. A planted note from the friend told him to scale a wall at midnight, so young Oskar did just that, slicing his hands on the glass shards protruding from the top. He fled with a younger cousin hundreds of miles eastward through the Polish forests, forded a heavily guarded river and was welcomed by Soviet soldiers.

He assumed the life of a Ukrainian farm boy but was overrun again by the Nazi forces. His first concentration camp was Plaszow, made famous by "Schindler's List" - a film Klausenstock is forbidden to see by order of his wife. He was often transferred to other camps and worked in quarries, as a blacksmith and as a welder.

At Flossenburg, he was detained along with the son of Soviet premier Jozef Stalin. He narrowly missed being assigned to an unexploded bomb detonation detail in which many Jews were killed.

He was once strafed by British Spitfire planes along with other laborers at an airfield where the Nazis were testing the first jet plane, the Messerschmidt Me-262.

"Somehow my luck followed me the entire war, and I don't know why," Klausenstock said. "Every four or five days, I had an experience where I thought I was going to die."

In May 1945, he was being marched outside of a camp with a group that had started as 800 emaciated and exhausted prisoners. Anyone who stumbled and fell was shot. The group, down to about 45 survivors, was stopped for a rest at a barn. Klausenstock hid in a hay bale and was stunned that no German soldiers checked the bales with a pitchfork.

When he came out the next day, he saw in the distance American POWs being marched under guard toward a camp. He sneaked behind the group while wearing his prison camp striped pajamas and tapped the shoulder of the last man in line.

"He said two words I'll never forget: 'Holy sh--,'" said Klausenstock, who knew enough English to understand.

He was given a coat to blend in with the marchers. Arriving at the camp, the prisoners cleaned up their new mascot by soaping him up in a pigs' trough. "That was my baptism," Klausenstock said.

A few days later, an Allied victory was declared. Within weeks, Klausenstock was serving as an interpreter for the occupying U.S. Army, and that fall he spent some time working for Gen. George Patton just before the general died from injuries in a traffic accident.

When the Allies were staking European claims in the months after the war, the Soviets had eyes for the famed Lipizzaner Stallions, which had been moved from Vienna to Simbach, Germany. As far as the Soviets were concerned, the show horses were property of the Hungarian military and thus could be turned into cavalry horses. Klausenstock orchestrated a transfer of the horses into American hands and later learned to ride the stallions himself.

Klausenstock studied medicine in Frankfurt, Germany, before coming to the United States in 1949 with the aid of U.S. Army contacts. He had $1.90 to his name when he was accepted at Boston University.

He laughs as he recounts the three years he worked as a doctor at Fort Huachuca in Arizona. "Imagine me, after what I had been through, a captain in the U.S. Army right next to Tombstone, Ariz.," he said. He finished his studies at Stanford, worked at two hospitals and then opened his practice in San Francisco in 1959.

Klausenstock has soothed himself by writing his memoirs, mostly unpublished, and immersing himself in poetry. He has never attended a Holocaust survivors meeting.

"When it was all over, foremost in my mind was to forget it," Klausenstock said. "Some people have more difficulty than others in doing that. My healing was that I was not a Holocaust survivor, I was a human being. In a way, I have become a stranger to myself, but it is a good estrangement."

German blogger: Hitler was a Zionist-British agent

Using google translate, it's mostly understandable.

source: BRD-GMBH

Hitler was a Zionist-British agent

How to get to such a claim?

Not only is claimed in literature on this subject, Hitler was largely financed by Jewish sources, such as the banking houses Kuehn, Praise & Co, Baron von Schroder, Warburg's, etc., he also showed consistently one-British attitude which looked almost unparalleled. Despite his professed hatred of the Jewish financiers, he had never made in his speeches on the internationally active banking house of Rothschild Jewish banking family even though at that time had the reputation of various international criminal machinations have financed. This is connected with the fact that he himself, as has been claimed since the seventies, from different sides, a descendant of a Rothschild from Vienna was? One of Hitler's great-grandfathers was a farmer Alois Schicklgruber (1764-1821). His daughter, Hitler's grandmother, Maria Anna (1795-1847). She called her first and only child, Alois (1837-1903). At that time, she worked as a cook. Alois Hitler was the father (1889 -) are?.

The question now is whose child this was Alois. Maria Anna was unmarried at his birth, and married a Johann Georg Heidler only when the child is already five years old. Alois later took the name Hitler. Claims he was a descendant of the Jewish employer of Maria Anna was, until now not want to fall silent. While I could personally see no clear evidence yet, but think it was possible. But even if there is no clear evidence of Hitler's descent from a Rothschild or any other Jews, there is ample evidence that this is the case. Hitler employed all sorts of Jews, such as his favorite director, Leni Riefenstahl, Hans Frank, head of the Legal Department of NSDAPReichsleitung, Karl Adolf Eichmann, SS reach Lieutenant Colonel and head of the Jewish Department in the Reich Security Main Office and a few others about its objectives.

Above all, the outcome of World War II demonstrated the achievement of objectives is the Jewish-Zionist circles: The State of Israel was founded because many Jews before the specter of anti-Semitism largely orchestrated fled to Israel.

Zionism for the Jews of Europe had to invent a reason why they should leave the prosperous Europe to emigrate to the barren, little Palestine developed. So a great wave of anti-Semitism had to be directed at the Jews in their supposed home to scare away. Anyone who reads this Wolfgang Eggert, "Israel Geheimvatikan or Hennecke Kardel" Adolf Hitler - Founder of Israel. "Other objectives, such as the division of Europe, the Cold War, etc. were also realized with the active support of Hitler.

But we come to the most obvious relief, which Hitler carried out for the Allies. These reveal his true face: When the British Expeditionary Force in 1940 was forced to withdraw on his flight from the German army during the French campaign on a narrow coastal strip at Dunkirk, it was Adolf Hitler, who ordered the German panzer divisions advancing on Dunkirk, their rapid advance by one stop couple of days. Thus Hitler's English friends enough time, about 300 000 of its soldiers were just in time to sell to England. These 300 000 troops could have been captured without too much difficulty. Any commanding officer would have done so for obvious reasons - not that Hitler. 300 000 soldiers would be replaced once. If you look at the beginning of a war there, of whom every reader could calculate international newspapers that he is not in the near future, would be terminated by mutual loving statesmen who fall into each other's arms, it would be imperative for greater enemy quotas to capture every opportunity that offered, and certainly at a as in Dunkirk. But Adolf (Yehuda) Hitler did not win a war for Germany. For the jüdischstämmige Churchill, Roosevelt and jüdischstämmige the jüdischstämmige Stalin had something else agreed with him.

Hitler's so successful 'Battle of France, who was actually a plan by General von Manstein, was not to last to the reputation of the' leader 'as a brilliant military commanders to justify. Supported by the call he could make it easier from now on, no matter how well-intentioned advice about his experienced generals and put across his own ideas - to enforce the defeat of Germany -.

For example, in the summer of 1942, as the fiasco at Stalingrad offing. Hitler had ordered German troops to stop about 50 km from Moscow and not be an attack on Moscow to make. It was after all only the world capital of the Jewish Bolshevism, he pretended to fight. Instead, he ordered the German troops to advance into the Caucasus where they were to occupy the rich oil fields, which should cover the fuel consumption of the armed forces. A totally foolish undertaking, because each had previously been able to figure out that the Soviets would destroy the petroleum handling during their retreat from this area to tell them not to fall into German hands. This is what happened.

To get back into the damaged conveyor operation that was needed were a year or two. The troops, which Hitler had ordered into the Caucasus, but was also missing in the area around Stalingrad. The generals in command of the Wehrmacht, Hitler had become urgent to make an advance into the Caucasus only after the area around Stalingrad would have been completely occupied. Hitler had paid no attention, which resulted in the fact that no German troops were strong enough to hold Stalingrad.

The Commanding General Paulus, who had decided, therefore, break out of Stalingrad to the west, was ordered by Hitler meaningless to hold the position.

Ultimately, fell by 146 000 German and Romanian soldiers, about 90 000 were taken prisoner. Even if the attempt to break the German army in Stalingrad had not succeeded, it must be sought to blame Hitler, who had sent the required forces in the Caucasus.

In general, Hitler committed the mistake all too willing to withdraw from once a conquered territory to want no more, which he mostly stood in contrast to some of his generals.

Those generals who wanted to act strategically sensible, were ignored by him or dismissed from the High Command.

Hitler refrained from the Strait of Gibraltar, that is the strait between Spain and North Africa, to block what would be with relatively little effort have been possible. A Seeminenteppich, a destroyer and a couple of German U-boats would have sufficed. This would take the Anglo-American forces in North Africa fell considerably heavier foot. Sun, however, had to Rommel's Afrika Korps to see strong British and American units compared. Their landing at Casablanca would have a blockage of the Strait of Gibraltar but can not be stopped, but at Oran and Algiers in November 1942. Rommel went against the orders of Hitler, who achieved positions at all costs keep to the withdrawal and demanded by Hitler in March 1943, the eviction can not be the bridgehead for the soldiers fall into captivity. Hitler refused - as it could be different from -. Thus, the Africa Corps had on 13 May 1943 surrender. 250 000 German and Italian soldiers were forced to go into captivity.

In order to resist the German people against Hitler did not even have to come up, proclaimed Churchill and Roosevelt in January 1943 in Casablanca, the unconditional surrender of Germany as a war aim of the Allies. Completely covered by this requirement, the Allies deliberately strengthened the will to fight the Germans and their identification with the German leadership, as was clear by now that the Allies had expected nothing good. Similarly, German resistance groups could no longer feed the larger population, or the circle of hope for senior officers of the Wehrmacht. Even at the informal way the German resistance groups, no more good for the case of the fall of Hitler was promised.

During the retreat drew German troops from the east, Hitler once again the fact that he stubbornly clung to the front line of defense lines - despite contrary claims of several generals.

In addition, must be asked why Hitler had indeed seen very early in the war that the British possessed a large fleet of bombers to German cities lay in rubble and ashes, - which alone cost about a million German life - but he did not in a dream thought to increase according to the German bomber force for deterrence - or retaliatory purposes. According to England had recorded only about 34 000 casualties from bombing raids by German bombers. Not that I would like to see it, if more innocent civilians were killed on one side, it is confined to the question why Hitler, he wanted to win the war, as almost all modern historians' claims that so many wrong decisions met.

It is also now known that the Germans had towards the end of the war through a tested and deployable nuclear weapon. Why this has never been used by Hitler?

Allegedly, Hitler killed himself at the end of hostilities. The Western Allies, however, his deposition should have met privately. The Argentine author Abel Basti in his book about Hitler's post-war years. Hitler is said to have sold to Argentina in the southwest, in the small town of San Carlos de Bariloche, about 1350 km of the capital Buenos Aires. Basti documented this in his set put up a tourist guide book "Bariloche Nazi Tour Guide." The author relies on old documents, photographs and witness statements.

Detail of the subject, Hitler is also expressed by the New Zealand writer Greg Hallett with his' working under a pseudonym, co-author of "Spymaster." Her 2005 published book titled "Hitler was a British Agent" is based heavily on information from the intelligence environment . In it is described, among other things, like Hitler 1912/13 was educated in England. From circles of former KGB is further alleged that Martin Bormann, Eva Braun, have been KGB agents, and Hitler is said to have flown to discuss 1944 to Moscow.

Can all this be described here is really true? When you consider how politicians are currently creating over years and decades to deceive the public, it must be the answer "yes". Even Hitler was a demagogue, who arranged his thanks from Illuminatenkreisen, training was able to deceive the German people over years.

Through testimony from his environment, which are also illustrated by photographs, it is known that he rehearsed before a mirror gesturing for his speeches. Sure to be practiced by honest politicians rhetorical devices in the case of Hitler, these were, however, so unnatural, and placed that they draw conclusions about a lack of sincerity permit.

Forget the drivel from alleged eternal evil and guilty Germans. Any reparations claims should be sent to those human criminals, who have staged the First and Second World War and German not to the people. It is not my intention to represent all the Jews of the world as malevolent beasts, but unfortunately there are in Judaism, a significant number of Zionist fanatics shrink in front of her morbid Auserwähltheitswahn little about their useless goals. These guys need to stop immediately.

The model, Hitler 'in Russia

A Vladimir Zhirinovsky founded in 1990 in Russia, the LDPR, an alleged extreme right-wing party. Zhirinovsky was and is still chairman of the party, which was in the first Duma elections immediately and is still the second strongest political group represented in the Russian parliament. Although he lost since his early successes on the consent of the voters, he was elected in January 2000 after all, even as Vice President of the Duma.

Outwardly, he behaves as a tough anti-Semite and enemy of Israel. The whole thing does have one small catch: the allegation made by some for years he himself was a Jew, Zhirinovsky had to admit in an interview with the Israeli newspaper Ha'aretz in 2001 that his father was a Polish Jew, after he used it had always denied. His real name was Eidelstein to him at the age of eighteen years changed.

Zhirinovsky and his backers would have been able to conceal his Jewish ancestry, he would have been able to build, in fact, as a sort of new Hitler. He should also probably lead Russia into a new war that would have been contested by Israel and its Anglo-American friends.

Flashback - Cherokee Nation Voted in 2007 to Expel Descendants of Black Slaves

As proven by history, "nations" are composed of unique racial/cultural groups, not smorgasbords of different races living in any area or under the rule of any particular government.

The Cherokee asserted that it "was a matter of self-determination", "a basic, inherent right to determine [their] own citizenry."

It seems every race of people has this right to self-determination -- eg, to determine the racial make-up of their nations, to look out for the collective interests of those of their own kindred and race, etc.....except whites.

Cherokee Nation votes to expel slave descendants

Sunday, March 4, 2007
The Associated Press
Seattle Times

OKLAHOMA CITY — Cherokee Nation members voted Saturday to revoke the tribal citizenship of an estimated 2,800 descendants of the people the Cherokee once owned as slaves.

With a majority of districts reporting, 76 percent had voted in favor of an amendment to the tribal constitution that would limit citizenship to descendants of "by blood" tribe members as listed on the federal Dawes Commission's rolls from more than 100 years ago.

The commission, set up by a Congress bent on breaking up Indians' collective lands and parceling them out to tribal citizens, drew up two rolls, one listing Cherokees by blood and the other listing freedmen, a roll of blacks regardless of whether they had Indian blood.

Some opponents of the ballot question argued that attempts to remove freedmen from the tribe were motivated by racism.

Tribal officials said the vote by the 250,000-member Cherokee Nation was a matter of self-determination. "It's a basic, inherent right to determine our own citizenry. We paid very dearly for those rights," Cherokee Principal Chief Chad Smith said last month.

But the Cherokee freedmen see the vote as less about self-determination than about discrimination and historical blinders. They see in the referendum hints of a desire by some Cherokees to deny the tribe's slave-owning past.

"They know these people exist. And they're trying to push them aside, as though they were never with them," said Andra Shelton, who has at least one black ancestor. Shelton, 59, can recall her mother gossiping in fluent Cherokee when Cherokee friends and relatives visited.

People on both sides of the issue say the fight is also about tribal politics — the freedmen at times have been at odds with the tribal leadership — and about money.

Advocates of expelling the freedmen call it a matter of safeguarding tribal resources, which include a $350 million annual budget from federal and tribal revenue, and Cherokees' share of a gambling industry that, for U.S. tribes overall, takes in $22 billion a year.

The grass-roots campaign for expulsion has given heavy play to warnings that keeping freedmen in the Cherokee Nation could encourage thousands more to sign up for a slice of the tribal pie.

Many of the Cherokees' slaves accompanied the tribe when it was expelled from its traditional lands in North Carolina and Georgia and forced to migrate in 1838 and 1839 to Indian Territory, in what is now Oklahoma.

Thousands of Cherokees died during the trip, which became known as the "Trail of Tears." It is not known how many of their slaves also died.

The tribe fought for the Confederacy. In defeat, it signed a federal treaty in 1866 committing that its slaves, who had been freed by tribal decree during the war, would be absorbed as citizens of the Cherokee Nation.

The Cherokee Nation expelled many descendants of slaves in 1983 by requiring them to show a degree of Indian blood through the Dawes rolls. A tribal court reinstated them in March 2006. That spurred Saturday's special election, which received a go-ahead Feb. 21 when a federal judge in Washington denied the freedmen's request for an injunction to halt the balloting.

Friedrich Berg of on the Diesel Gas Chambers Fable

Part 2
Part 3

Friedrich Paul Berg was born in 1943, the son of German immigrants. He was educated in the United States and holds a degree in Mining Engineering from Columbia University. His professional engineering work has been primarily as a mechanical engineer.


"The Holocaust story relies on generally accepted --but totally false-- misperceptions about the toxicity of diesel exhaust. Although diesel exhaust does indeed smell terrible at times and may even look terrible, the appearance and smell have nothing whatever to do with the presence or absence of any toxic ingredient. The all important toxic ingredient is carbon monoxide; at full load, diesel exhaust contains less than 0.4% carbon monoxide. These numbers are the worst cases and apply to every Diesel engine ever built regardless of the condition of the engines. From diesels, even the highest CO levels alone cannot possibly kill more than a small minority of an average group of people. Only in combination with the reduced oxygen levels, which occur only when the engines are under "heavy load," can a combination of effects kill large percentages of people in half-an-hour. Any reasonable gassing arrangement would, however, have had to kill everyone. Gasoline engine exhaust, by contrast, easily contains 7% to 12% carbon monoxide and no oxygen at all. Even far more deadly, producer gas contains up to 35% carbon monoxide and no oxygen at all. More than 500,000 producer gas-driven vehicles were used throughout German-occupied Europe during WW2, any one of which would have been thousands of times more effective than any diesel arrangement. But, neither gasoline engines nor producer gas generators have ever been implicated in any of the Holocaust claims -- only diesels. How absurd and how inefficient those Nazis must have been!" [1]

Mohawk Indians evicting whites/non-Mohawks from their lands; Banned inter-racial marriages in 1981, Canadian courts uphold policy

The Kahnawake Mohawk Territory is an Indian reserve on the south shore of the St. Lawrence River in Quebec, Canada, across from Montreal.[1]

The Canadian courts have ruled that "Mohawks can make any membership policy they deem necessary for their survival as a people".

Well if it's kosher for Indians, Jews, and others to enact these policies for the preservation of their race and culture...then why can't WHITES/EUROPEANS do the same?

Non-natives being evicted

Given 10 days to leave Kahnawake; Mohawks concerned about 'protecting identity': 'This is part of revitalizing the community'

February 3, 2010

Saying there are too many non-natives living in Kahnawake, the local band council has issued eviction notices to 25 residents, giving them 10 days to leave the Indian reserve on Montreal's South Shore.

About 25 non-natives - mostly white people involved in relationships with Mohawks - are being asked to leave the reserve because Mohawk law does not allow them to live there, said Joe Delaronde, press attaché for the Mohawk Council of Kahnawake.

"They are people with no native ancestry at all," Delaronde said in an interview yesterday.

According to Mohawk law, non-aboriginals have no residency rights. About 7,500 Mohawks live on the reserve.

Band council chiefs began hand-delivering the strongly worded letter on Monday and continued yesterday.

"There have been numerous complaints regarding individuals contravening Mohawk law by residing in the Mohawk territory of Kahnawake without a right to do so. You were identified in these complaints," the letter says.

The eviction letter tells non-natives they have 10 days to leave the reserve.

"We trust that you understand the seriousness of this letter and that you will govern yourselves accordingly."

If the non-natives can't move by the deadline, they must contact the band council to make other arrangements, Delaronde said.

"We are not heartless," he added. "We know that not everyone has a brother or a parent in Châteauguay they can stay with."

In a press release on the band council's website, Grand Chief Michael Delisle said: "Every single Kahnawake Mohawk knows the law. It is unfortunate that some people have chosen to disregard the community's wishes."

In 1981, the community announced a moratorium on mixed marriages, which meant that non-natives who married Mohawks after that year would no longer have the right to live on the reserve. Any non-native who had married a Mohawk before the moratorium is still permitted to live on the reserve.

In the 1980s, some Mohawks contested the policy before the human rights tribunal, but lost. The courts have ruled that Mohawks can make any membership policy they deem necessary for their survival as a people

"We're very concerned about protecting our identity because at a certain point, the Canadian government will look at us and say: 'You are not even Indians,' " Delaronde said.

"We are very proud of our heritage and protective about it. We don't have a whole hell of a lot of it left. This is part of revitalizing the community."

The band council decided to act after receiving complaints from Indians who feel that too many non-natives are living on the reserve.

"We are responding to what the community wants," Delaronde said.

Although Mohawk law says that non-natives can't live on the reserve, they are allowed to visit and stay overnight, he explained.

"Sleeping over or staying for a week is a whole different situation," he said.

Delaronde said he hopes the non-natives accept the wishes of the community and leave peacefully.

If they refuse to move, their names will be "published locally," he said.

"I know that's not a nice thing, but if people refuse, names will be published and then it becomes a peer pressure thing."
