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

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.

It sickens me to the pits of my stomach to learn that filthy, lying Jews like Levi are given carte blanche to traipse round British educational establishments filling the heads of our children with souped-up holocaust propaganda.

So 'traumatised' was Levi that the lying, old witch kept her mouth shut for fifty years. I wish that every 'holocaust survivor' would shut the fuck up for at least fifty years. Their incredible tales might fool impressionable kids, but they wouldn't fool anyone who has looked into the myth that is 'the holocaust'.

Yeah Fugazi, so what now? After she was so "traumatized" that she's having still having nightmares and couldn't talk about it for 50 years.

Of course, let's traumatize children with these fairytales.

In a post I made last March, I said that: "In order to perpetuate the Holocaust myth, Jewish propagandists and their sympathisers are compelled to use the state education system to implant their propaganda in the minds of young British students because the seemingly endless list of Holocaust 'survivors' aren't going to be surviving for much longer. And when these 'survivors' do finally depart this mortal coil, so too does their 'testimony'. Very soon, there will be no more Holocaust 'survivors' left alive."

This would explain why Levi has made such a remarkable 'recovery' from the 'trauma' that she has 'suffered' and 'kept to herself' for the last fifty years. For the holocaust myth to survive, our children need to be indoctrinated and brainwashed while the 'holocaust survivors' are still alive because sooner or later (the sooner the better), the Grim Reaper will come calling for these despicable lying Jews.

Wolf... I suddenly remembered that 65 years ago, I was in a concentration camp and they turned my brothers and sisters into soap. But I escaped by being at the back of a line and they miscounted the number of people in the line... I was #6,435, but they could only count to 6,434! Lucky me...

Then I was running around in the woods, living with the wolves for about a year, until the Germans shot at me 200 times, but after the 199th bullet missed me, I got wounded in the shoulder and I was captured, and brought back into the prison camp.

They failed to exterminate me a second time by another miracle, and I miraculously escaped by jumping over the 12ft high fence and I buried myself for a year in the mud with only a small breathing hole poking out above the ground!

They captured me a third, fourth, fifth, sixth, and seventh time, but I was able to escape the gas chamber each time by borrowing someone else's coat and I was led out of the camp in a work detail....

I was in 250 camps all together, and I survived them all!

You don't believe me? Then you are nothing but a holocaust denier!!

By the way, send me money... I suddenly remembered all of this after 65 years, and i want to go on the talk show circuit to make millions off of your goyim children!

There, that is my holocaust tale which I will be getting book deals, and I will be stinking rich shortly...

Lone Wolf said...

Vhaaaaatt Northern?

You didn't come face to face with Mengele?!

No death march?!

Overall good job. Your tale needs just a little bit of improvement.

Northerntruthseeker said...

But not bad for just thinking this up off the top of my head.... Just like the fantasy tales that these criminals have come up with!

Lone Wolf said...

just kidding bro

your tale is kosher by me

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

So those nasty Nazis were efficient enough to run Holocaust™ camps all over Europe, imprisoning millions, but can't keep track of one person inside one camp?

The Nightmare Never Ends? No Shit.

The portraits above are of the same man but in two different incarnations. On the left we see Martin "Gray" in retirement after a successful career peddling fake antiques to gullible collectors. He is holding his mass market paperback, For Those I Loved, which is filled with his exploits as a saintly "Holocaust Survivor" who was supposedly forced to help clear bodies out of the Treblinka "gas chamber." The earlier portrait on the right is of the youthful Gray as a decorated officer in the Soviet NKVD (the forerunner of the KGB), responsible for the murder of millions of Christians and gentiles in Russia and Eastern Europe. Even Establishment researchers have had to admit that Gray's book is as phony as the antiques he peddled. But Gray's scam is symbolic of countless other Communist ghouls who have managed to land on their feet in the West, disguised as poor, persecuted "Survivors of the Holocaust" and feted as the saints and martyrs of the universe. Meanwhile the holocaust they perpetrated against millions of Christians slips further down the dark environs of Orwell's memory hole.

The Germans, the supposed epitome of "mass murdering geniuses", let MILLIONS of jews survive the camps and in the areas they occupied during the war.

What kind of "jew extermination master plan" was this?

Straightaway something disturbed me before I even looked at the story. A picture certainly does tell a thousand words. Nearly half of these kids in the picture aren't indigenous Britains. Hey, but aint mass immigration and multiculturalism beautiful concepts.

I could just imagine the lesbian Marxist headmistress of this wonderfully diverse school introducing this old fleabag to the pupils and telling them what a terrible time she and the rest of the Jews had at the hands of White racists.

Rachel Levi traumatises the children of tales of how Jews were fed, clothed and housed and had access to better medicines and medical facilities than German soldiers fighting on the Eastern Front.
