On the 19th of December, 2008, an article titled 'Holocaust survivor escaped with gems' appeared in the web edition of the Miami Herald. The article, which has since been removed from their website, encapsulated the story of Irene Weisberg Zisblatt, a Hungarian Orthodox Jew and alleged World War II holocaust survivor.

Born Chana Seigelstein in Hungary around 1931, Zisblatt remained silent for 50 years, deciding to go public with her account of suffering, torture, medical experimentation and eventual escape from the notorious Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland, after having been inspired by the Steven Spielberg film, Schindler's List. She would later appear in Spielberg's award winning documentary film, The Last Days, which was centered around five Hungarian holocaust survivors.

At the center of Zisblatt's tragic story, the complete version of which is available in her book, The Fifth Diamond, are four diamonds given to her by her mother "to be used to buy bread should she ever find herself hungry". Zisblatt is portrayed as the fifth diamond, however like many alleged holocaust survivors before her, there are many grave problems with her story.

A copy of the Miami Herald article is provided here for reference since we will be examining it rather closely:

Holocaust survivor escaped with gems
Special to The Miami Herald

Her mother gave her four diamonds to be used to buy bread should she ever find herself hungry during World War II, but those diamonds gave Irene Weisberg Zisblatt the fortitude to survive the Holocaust.

"I can not buy bread with your diamonds, mother, but as long as I am alive they will stay with me," she wrote in her memoir, The Fifth Diamond: The Story of Irene Weisberg Zisblatt.

A resident of Pembroke Pines since 1990, Zisblatt recently discussed her book and appearance in Steven Spielberg's documentary, The Last Days, at Nova Southeastern University.

Born Chana Seigelstein, Zisblatt lived in Hungary with her parents and five siblings. In 1942, when she was 11, her mother, Rachel, sewed the diamonds into the hem of her skirt before she was taken by the Nazis to the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp in Poland.

Zisblatt's entire family was killed in the gas chambers, and those four diamonds were the last mementoes of them. The only way Irene could keep the diamonds hidden was to swallow and retrieve them over and over again. She did this for 15 months.

Zisblatt told the audience how, as a young prisoner in the camps, she was a favorite of Dr. Josef Mengele, who performed experiments and surgeries on her and other prisoners without anesthesia. A girl named Sabka was another of Mengele's regular victims. Though they weren't allowed to speak, they formed a friendship and Zisblatt drew strength from their bond.

"The diamonds survived because, to me, they were the strength, the hope, the courage, and my mother, so they had to survive," Zisblatt said. In having a valuable secret from the Nazis, she felt that she was defeating her torturers. "For every time that I was hungry, beaten or was tortured with experiments, I was hitting back by keeping my mother's diamonds."

Mengele injected chemicals into her eyes in an attempt to change their color and forced her to remain in a cold room for days. He injected viruses under Zisblatt's fingernail and surgically experimented on her to find a way to remove the numbers tattooed on her arm. Afterward, he ordered the nurse to administer a lethal injection to both girls, but the nurse worked for the underground and was able to free them, one of many miracles Zisblatt experienced.

"Mengele was the most good-looking man," she said. "He could have been the one scientist in the world who could have developed extraordinary things for humanity, but he became a murderer. He would look at me and smile and at times I could not believe this man could ever hurt me, he could be so charming. But the next minute, he was cutting me up into little pieces."

In 1945, Irene and Sabka were part of a group of 5,000 prisoners forced to march in the cold. Every day, weakened prisoners dropped dead around her. After two months, they escaped. Exhausted and covered in lice, they walked through the forest and managed to stay alive by digging up food.

The pair were finally liberated by Gen. George Patton's Third Army, but Sabka died the very next day. Once again, Zisblatt lost her only family. After her recovery, she was taken in by relatives in America and began a new life with a new name. She married in 1956, and although she had been given watery soup filled with chemicals to destroy her reproductive organs, she gave birth to a son and a daughter in the 1960s.

Not wanting to remember her past, Zisblatt kept her mother's diamonds in a vault. Years later, at her husband's suggestion, she had the diamonds set into a pendant in the shape of a tear drop. She does not wear them regularly -- only when she speaks to future generations.

Zisblatt had vowed that if she survived, she would be a voice for her fellow prisoners. But it was not until her son asked her about the Holocaust that she was ready to share her story.

"For 50 years, I didn't say a word. I didn't want my children to live with my pain," she said.

After taking part in the March of the Living, a walk through the camps culminating in Israel, she began to share her story to educate children in order to rid the world of prejudice and indifference, and to teach future generations about the past and what hatred can do.

"I am a survivor of man's hatred," Zisblatt said. 'We were dragged from our homes, robbed of our childhood, yanked from our mothers' arms. I was living in a factory of death."

The above article appeared on the Miami Herald website just three days after Israel, the Zionist occupier of Palestine, unleashed a campaign of military terror which targeted schools, hospitals, homes and defenseless women and children within the ever shrinking, open-air prison known as the Gaza Strip. Operation Cast Lead was just another in a growing list of military actions undertaken during the course of Israel's six-plus decade slaughter of the Palestinian Arabs, whom it has been harassing, torturing, imprisoning, displacing and murdering since the end of the second World War in an effort to confiscate their land to meet the needs of the growing Jewish state. As a testament to the barbaric brutality of the Zionist settlers, the video below captures armed Israeli soldiers using rocks to break the bones of Palestinians as punishment for throwing the same, which are often the only weapons they have to defend themselves, their families, their homes, their schools and their farmlands against the constant influx of settlers and their well equipped military.

Video: Torture of Gazans :: Bone Breaking Method of Israel Soldiers

The 22 day slaughter by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) which began on December 27, 2008, incorporated the use of illegal weapons including white phosphorous and flechette shells. These barbaric weapons of mass destruction were intentionally deployed in areas occupied by civilians where they burned homes and people and sliced the flesh of anyone in their path. The civilian casualties, many of whom were women and children, made up the vast majority of the nearly 2000 victims of this particular instance of Israel's genocidal war.

In addition to subjecting the Palestinians to the more traditional weapons of war, Israel also uses them to test new weapons such as depleted uranium munitions and the "Dime bomb" which was developed by the US Air Force Research Laboratory.

As part of Israel's PR campaign to justify its U.S. backed genocide in Gaza and divert public attention from its policy of ethnic cleansing and encroachment into Palestinian land, once again the world would be browbeaten with the Jewish holocaust of World War II, this time in the form of yet another story about yet another alleged holocaust survivor whose cache of clichéd claims have been debunked decades ago.

Norman Finkelstein effectively sums up Israel's perverted use of the "holocaust card" to justify its persecution of the Palestinians during this brief and rather heated segment from a presentation given to students at the University of Waterloo in 2010, during which a naive Jewish girl displays her teary-eyed displeasure with Finkelstein's remarks:

Video: Zionism and the Holocaust Card - Dr Norman Finklestein

Though the subject of the Jewish holocaust is a sensitive one, i feel compelled to analyze Zisblatt's multifaceted story of her alleged experience in the German concentration camps of World War II, even if it is largely devoid of original content. While part of my motive is to simply examine the numerous extraordinary claims she has laid, i feel it is far more important to draw attention to the enormous historical, psychological and political impact which Zionism and the holocaust continues to have upon the world 70-plus years after the close of World War II.

Because those who question the official version of Jewish holocaust history immediately open themselves up to criminal prosecution, ridicule, defamation and labels such as anti-Semite, racist and even 'self-hating Jew' should they be Jewish, i want to make it very clear at the outset that i am not a member of any race related organization, nor do i hate any group based on religious beliefs, skin color, origin or any other common attribute, nor do i view my race as superior to another. I believe that the vast majority of people, Jewish or otherwise, are well intentioned and that the world would be a far better place if our benevolent qualities and creativity were allowed to flourish instead of being repressed by those powerful few who seem to lack even a modicum of compassion. Having said that, and where it concerns those few, extraordinarily powerful people who have unethical and criminal intentions, be they Jewish or otherwise, the gloves are off and i care not where the chips may fall in my pursuit of the truth.

Gun Control and the Nazis - Setting the Record Straight

This article examines the popular claim that Adolf Hitler disarmed the German people at large in order to facilitate his goal of ridding Germany of the Jews.

Quite often i find misinformed people and the mainstream media drawing sensationalist parallels between the political climate of Hitler's Germany and that of the United States at present. 1 2 3 Though there are indeed disturbing similarities, the context in which the policies are rooted could hardly be more at odds; while Nazi Germany was essentially a police-state dictatorship, similar to that which the U.S. is devolving toward today 4 5 6, it is quite clear that the ideology driving the politics in Hitler's Germany was intended to avoid the same sort of tyranny, corruption and moral erosion which the people of the U.S. and elsewhere find themselves battling at present.

One very popular example of such a parallel asks us to compare gun control laws in the U.S. with those of Nazi Germany. Here we are led to believe that Hitler disarmed all German citizens, resulting in the slaughter of six million defenseless Jews on his way toward world domination. Those who have researched German's role in World War II beyond the history fabricated by western governments and mainstream historians however, are likely to have reached very different conclusions regarding Hitler 1, the Jewish holocaust 2, and our subject of focus here; the gun control laws in Hitler's Germany.

Many are aware of the depth to which corruption is embedded in all levels of government and how its mouthpiece, the mainstream media, falsifies, minimizes or simply omits many subjects of importance. 1 2 We know that officials cannot be blindly trusted and that our history books do not always portray an accurate account of historical events, yet many still subscribe without question to the official narrative regarding Germany's role in the Second World War, never bothering to question whether those that wrote the history may have had an agenda that would best be served by altering it.

In order to paint an accurate picture of who was disarmed and why, i think it is necessary to briefly examine the circumstances behind Hitler's rise to power, for there is a great deal more to the story than what is revealed publicly. To begin, we must put into context the mindset of the German people during the 1920's, as well as the mindset in general throughout the developed world at that time, a time during which African Americans were still being lynched in the United States. 1

Prior to World War II and before Hitler rose to power, the Jews had been expelled from approximately 67 countries including Austria, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Lithuania, Netherlands, Portugal, Prague, Russia, Spain, Switzerland and the Ukraine, sometimes more than once, and persecuted in other forms in as many more according to Jewish history. 1 Rather than automatically attributing the lengthy historical persecution of the Jews to antisemitism as many Jewish organizations would have us do, one might consider why no one wanted the Jews. The expulsion of the Jews was obviously not unique to Germany, nor was the internment of subversives and undesirables which had occurred in many countries both before and during the war. 2 3 4 5 The United States government forced Japanese, Italian and German-Americans into concentration camps during the this period, subjecting some detainees to forced labor in at least one case. 6 7 8 9

The Treaty of Versailles after World War I, which wrongly laid the blame for the war entirely upon Germany, was heavily influenced by powerful Jewish businessmen and politicians, including Louis Rothschild, Phillip Sassoon, Bernard Baruch, Stephen Wise, Paul Warburg (former Chairman of the Federal Reserve) and his brother Max Warburg. 1 The treaty succeed not only in robbing the German people of their dignity, but also in gutting the state financially and militarily, as well as dividing large portions of her land among the victors. 1 2 The erosion of German values and corruption of its political, financial and media institutions continued after the first war as Jewish politicians, lawyers and businessmen took up residence in Germany where they undermined the government and spread Marxist propaganda through the radio and print companies which they controlled. 3 German culture and morals were further assaulted by the pornography that came with the Jews, who were prominent in the industry then as they are today. 4 5 6 7 8 9

I can think of no better quote to summarize the reason for Hitler's rise to power than that which was spoken by Ernst Zündel during a 1996 interview by an Israeli journalist in which he stated that "Hitler was an organic outgrowth to Jewish behavior". 1 2 Although i have not thoroughly researched the circumstances under which the Jews had been expelled and persecuted in more than one hundred countries prior to World War II, it appears their behavior was a key factor in many instances. Certainly many of us today see the devastating impact of Zionism in Palestine 3 4 as well as the heavy handed and disproportionate influence powerful Jews wield in the worlds most important institutions, including the news media, entertainment, government, politics and finance. 5 6 7 8 9 10 Hitler had a solid insight regarding the effects that world Jewry and their central banks had upon Germany. 11

At this point i think it is important to state that it is not my intention to imply that the Jewish people as a whole are responsible for all the worlds problems, however when one considers the impact that portions of Jewish culture and ideology has, and continues to have upon various nation states, i think it is abundantly clear that this influence is responsible for a significant number of the most important problems we face, at least to some degree. Ultimately however, i think we only have ourselves to blame; we, the "99%", Jewish or otherwise, who make it possible for the "1%" to maintain power, enslave us with their monetary systems, brainwash us with their media, and send us to fight and die in lucrative wars which are engineered and financed by corrupt politicians and international bankers for reasons which seem to consist of little more than personal greed and geopolitical control. The Jewish people as a whole are also victims of these self-serving elitists, as well as any nation which has succumbed to the international bankers. Hitler planned to eliminate the threat that this sect of Jewry posed by expelling the Jewish businessmen from his country. In a broadcast to the German people in 1941, he stated in part:

This conspiracy of democratic Jews and Free Masons dragged Europe into war two years ago. Arms had to decide.

Since then a struggle has been taking place between truth and lies and, as always, this war will end in the victory for truth. In other words, whatever lies British propaganda, international world Jewry and its democratic accomplices may concoct they will not change historical facts. And it is a historical fact that for two years now Germany has been defeating one opponent after another.

I did not want it. Immediately after the first conflict I again held out my hand. I have been a soldier myself and I know how difficult it is to win a victory.

My hand was rejected. And since then we have seen that each peace offer was immediately exploited by the warmonger Churchill and his confreres so that they could say it was proof of our weakness.

In March of 1933, less than a month after Hitler was appointed chancellor and prior to his order to boycott Jewish businesses and Kristallnacht, powerful Jews declared economic war upon Germany in the form of a world-wide call to boycott German businesses, the goal of which was the complete economic destruction of the country. 1 2 3 This declaration of war occurred well before the German government began restricting the rights of Germany's Jews.

Judea Declares War on Germany

Upon economic warfare having been declared by international Jewry, it would appear that the German government had the legal right, according to international law, to confiscate the arms of a self-established enemy residing within its borders, however this confiscation would not take place for another five years when, in November of 1938, Herschel Grynszpan, a Polish Jew, assassinated Ernst vom Rath, a popular German diplomat 4 5 and thus the popular claim that all Germans were disarmed, or that Jews were illegally disarmed, are factually incorrect. While the somewhat restrictive gun control law from 1928 was left in place for the first five years after Hitler was appointed chancellor, the revised firearms law enacted by the government in 1938 actually removed or relaxed many restrictions regarding firearm ownership. Following is a summary of the gun control laws in Germany by date: 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13

  • 1919: Gun ownership is restricted to persons possessing a weapon or hunting license. Arrangements are made by the allies to confiscate all privately owned firearms under the threat of sanctions.
  • 1920: The German population is to be disarmed with severe penalties for violates.
  • 1927: Production of handguns with a barrel length of 98mm or greater and a bore of 8mm or larger is banned.
  • 1928: The general prohibition on the acquisition of firearms is lifted, however strict provisions are made requiring separate permits to own, sell, carry and manufacture firearms and ammunition. A license is still required to own long guns.
  • 1931: Due to the rising political crises, the acquisition of firearms and ammunition is subject to further restrictions.
  • 1933: Nazis seize power.
  • 1938: A weapon permit or hunting license is required for handguns only, the permit restriction for long guns is removed. The acquisition and transfer of rifles and shotguns, as well as the possession of ammunition is deregulated. The age limit for purchasing firearms is lowered from 20 to 18. Firearms permits are valid for three years instead of one. Holders of annual hunting permits, government workers and NSDAP members are no longer subject to firearm ownership restrictions. Jews are prohibited from manufacturing, dealing, possessing and carrying firearms and ammunition (violators are subject to imprisonment for up to five years).
  • 1945: Legislative power is transferred to the Allied Military Commission.
  • 1945-1946: All of Germany is disarmed, including the military, police and civilians. All firearms must be turned over to the nearest Allied Commander within 10 days. The maximum punishment for possession of a firearm is death.

The relaxing of the German gun laws of 1938 by Hitler's government sits in stark contrast to what we are experiencing today in the United States where there is an obvious effort to circumvent the 2nd amendment to our constitution by what many see as a criminal and tyrannical government hell-bent on widening its scope of power. While it is true that Hitler set up a fascist, police-state dictatorship, one must account for not only the reasons why he did so, but why so many Germans initially tolerated and later overwhelmingly supported him with their votes. Germany was facing an extremely desperate situation prior to Hitler as a result of severe hyperinflation and unemployment, widespread prostitution and pornography, drug use and general lawlessness. The country was also facing a very real threat of a communist takeover by the Bolshevik Jews who influenced the political, legal and educational systems, as well as the media. 1 2 3

In the early 1920's a loaf of bread cost hundreds of billions of reichsmarks and a kilogram of butter cost thousands of billions. 1 Hitler proposed real solutions to the dire problems  Germany was facing and thus gained the support of the German people because he produced tangible results. In just a few short years he created millions of jobs and completely reversed the exponential downward spiral of Germany's economy at a time when much of the rest of the world was still battling the effects of the banker engineered Great Depression. 2 3 4 Most importantly, Hitler restored the dignity of the German people which had been stripped of them by the Jewish-backed power-brokers who influenced the Treaty of Versailles. These dramatic changes would not have been possible without the removal of the influential Jewish bankers, businessmen, politicians and communists. 5 The overwhelming support which Hitler came to enjoy -- an unheard of 90% at one time -- resulted in some of the largest and most enthusiastic rallies the world has ever seen. 6 Widely praised for his accomplishments by leaders and economists the world over, no nation state before or since has been able to replicate what Hitler accomplished in just a few years.

Unlike Barry Soetero and the rest of the Jewish-Zionist funded presidents that have occupied the White House after the murder of John Kennedy, Hitler's campaign did not rest on wish-washy words like "hope". Instead it rested firmly upon clear, concise goals which were met through decisive action. Hitler did not require a fleet of armored vehicles and bullet-proof barriers between himself and the admiring crowds while he spoke to and mingled with millions of Germans in the streets because nearly all of Germany and, in fact, much of the world respected and admired him. Which politician in Washington, D.C. can say the same today?

While there are indeed parallels between Hitler's Germany and the U.S. today, it is abundantly clear that the foundations of those politics could hardly be more different. There can be no comparison between the corrupt, lobbyist-fueled, weak-kneed whores who have occupied Washington, D.C. for decades and Adolf Hitler, who did not bow to the Zionist mafia or worship at the Wailing Wall while our countrymen pay the price in blood and tears and taxes and bailouts as the nation loses its sole, descending dangerously close to the conditions that existed during Germany's Weimar Republic period of the 1920's and 1930's.
