In part one we left off with with a ‘close shave’ in the tale of the incredible escape from Auschwitz. The SS men were closing in on Vrba and Wetzler’s hiding spot in a woodpile, but stopped mid-way through. As you do when you’re on a manhunt. Search everything from top to half-way.
After the close call Vrba and Wetzler simply sprinted out of Auschwitz in the middle of the night. Implying that the guards aren’t guarding at night.
In the tweet above Mack also claims that the Nazis had replaced all local people with Nazi sympathizers. Even my robot assistant, Bill, is calling BS on that one. This is a great example of how people will ascribe extraordinary powers upon the Nazis when it suits their narrative.
Vrba and Wetzler allegedly escaped from Auschwitz on April 7, 1944 and the temperature in the area was just in the freezing range (32 F). The route they allegedly took mostly followed a railway and avoided certain towns. Seems reasonable, for once.
However reasonable the escape route to Slovakia seems to be I do not believe that Vrba and Wetzler escaped from Auschwitz because the rest of the story is unreasonable.
I asked Bill if there was any record of Vrba’s escape. Bill said there is not. To check this I looked for Vrba in the United States Holocaust Memorial and Museums’ database of Holocaust survivors and victims. This database “brings together information from the Museum’s collections, as well as from other organizations, about individual survivors and victims into one search tool.” There was no entry with documentation for him under Rudolf Vrba or his given name, Walter Rosenberg. Although there is a record of Alfred Wetzler being in Birkenau.
Bill says the explanation for the lack of documentation of Vrba’s escape is that, “The Nazi regime, particularly the SS (Schutzstaffel) and the camp administration, sought to prevent and suppress escape attempts to maintain control and instill fear among the prisoners. It is more probable that they would have focused their efforts on capturing escaped prisoners rather than extensively documenting individual escapes.” There is literally no reason the Nazis couldn’t have focused on capturing escaped prisoners and also kept a record of the incident. Bill is coping.
According to the third paragraph from Bill’s response (above) the main source of information on Vrba’s escape was from witness testimony and from Vrba himself, a known liar. Historical research just means that his story coincides with the official narrative of the Holocaust. Witness testimony just isn’t going to cut it for me. Especially testimony from an unreliable witness like Vrba.
Bill’s response about the escape record left me unsettled. So I gave him a break and asked another question:
I should not be surprised that Bill’s two answers contradict each other. The official Holocaust narrative is rife with contradictions. I wonder why…
Continuing on, Mack states, “Vrba & Wetzler didn’t produce an emotional report about how they killed his first love.” That was probably because Vrba hadn’t thought of it yet. I have previously written about the ‘objective report’ that Mack mentions. It is known as the ‘Auschwitz Report’ or the ‘Auschwitz Protocols’. In my article I detail the issues with this report and instances of Vrba and Wetzler being dishonest in their other writings.
Fortunately Mack provided one of the bigger problems with the Auschwitz report. This being the ‘rough ground plan’ of the crematoria in Birkenau. In my aforementioned article I illustrated how this drawing (below) looks nothing like any of the alleged gas chamber buildings in Auschwitz/Birkenau. Vrba’s report might have not been emotional, but that doesn’t mean it was objective or accurate.
Continue to part three to learn the aftermath of Vrba’s report and of his life after Auschwitz (assuming he was even there in the first place).
