If you have not read part one please do so now, otherwise you might get lost. I’ll wait.
Now that we’re all on the same page I can continue presenting claims made by the Auschwitz Memorial official Twitter account.
Auschwitz Memorial (AM) does not only present the death of children in the course of disseminating Holocaust propaganda. Below is a tweet about an adult, Otto Teller, that ‘did not survive’ the Holocaust.
I have no doubt that Otto was a real person. Unlike with Agnes Fuchs from part one, I was able to find a record of him outside of the Find a Graveyard site and the Yad Vashem database (YVdb). The following is the record of his transfers to different facilities. What I do question is if he actually perished during the war, and if so, how. And because I do not have access to the original record of these train manifests I do not know if Otto’s death was recorded in these documents or if it is an assumption made at a later time.
The YVdb entry for Otto Teller (see image below) makes the assumption that he was murdered in the Shoah (Holocaust). However, they have a board definition of murder: “During the Shoah, Jews were murdered in a variety of ways, among them gassing, shooting, burning, drowning or burial alive, exhaustion through forced labor, starvation, epidemic diseases, deprivation of medical care and minimal hygienic conditions, and more. Some Jews took their own lives in order to escape arrest and further persecution, or to end their hopeless, relentless suffering.” I could go off about how they don’t have any proof for most of these claims, but this article is not the place for that.
Instead of the source for Otto’s entry being pages of testimony, as it was with most people I looked at, it is sourced from the list of Theresienstadt camp inmates. This leads me to an answer for the persistent Holocaust affirmer gotcha of, “Where are the missing people?” Stepping over the fact that the appropriate question is “Where are the 6 million human remains?”, the case of Otto Teller helps illustrate a possible and likely scenario. Here we have a man that did not have any family members to submit a page of testimony for him, rather he is known because his name is on a list of camp inmates. It is possible that he died during the war, but it’s also possible he just became unaccounted for. Did anyone even try to locate Otto Teller?
Even my robot assistant, BIll, agrees that people can become unaccounted for after a war:
Now let’s look at the YVdb search results for a Hungarian girl named Györgyi Einhorn. There is nothing particularly interesting about her case aside from the fact that her alleged murder is counted three times. Yad Vashem boasts that their database contains 3 million entries. What they don’t boast about is the countless duplicates or the fact they have listed living, well-known, Holocaust survivors as being murdered. Even with all the duplicates and inaccurate listings the YVdb only contains half of the alleged 6 million victims.
Another case that helps illustrate what might have happened to the missing people is that of Fanny Cukier. Fanny was born in Poland but was living in France prior to WW2. She was deported to Auschwitz during the war where it is claimed that she was murdered.
Like Otto, Fanny also has physical documentation of her existence. Her name appeared on a French transport list and so did the names of her children, Irene and Ginette.
When looking for Fanny on MyHeritage a entry for a 1948 Ellis Island passenger list came up.
Fortunately MH provides the original immigrant manifest (click here for the full size image). Is this the same Fanny? The age is off by 15 years and it has the birthplace listed as Klon, Germany. However there are things listed that match what we know about Fanny. That she read French, that Poland was her nationality and that her race was Hebrew. Although Hebrew was crossed out and replaced with White, but we’ll get to that later. I also can’t find a different Fanny Cukier that was born around 1923. I’m not saying this the same Fanny that was claimed to have been murdered in Auschwitz, although I’m not going to rule it out. It is known that after the war Jews immigrated to America and places all over the world. It’s also known that American Jews changed their last names, although not at Ellis Island as is commonly assumed. Here we have more stumbling blocks when comes to trying to account for the missing people of the Holocaust.
I asked Bill about this matter of Hebrew being crossed out and replaced with White, which was done twice on the manifest from above. His response was, “There were specific quota systems and restrictions in place that limited the number of immigrants from various countries. The category “Hebrew” was used on immigration manifests to denote individuals who were of Jewish descent. However, the United States government did not have a specific quota for Jewish immigrants. Instead, Jewish immigrants were counted within the broader category of “Whites.”
Turns out Bill is correct. The following are statistics from the US Census Bureau. After 1943 Hebrews, aka Jews, no longer have their own category in the immigration statistics. This hides the number of Jewish immigrants to America. A hurdle that hinders the tracking of groups of missing people.
When AM presents their claims of murdered children they expect you to just believe them and not look into it. While today’s article cannot draw any hard conclusions, what it is meant to do is get you to ask questions. There’s a lot of information that Holocaust officials leave out when presenting their narrative and it is really quite amazing how their stories fall apart when you ask the right questions.
