I don’t believe this story for a moment. Just some guy trying to make some quick cash for his kids.
So he’s in a camp, but bribes a guard with cigarretes to escape, trades place with a Dutch Jew to sneak into a concentration camp to see what’s happening there so he can tell the world. Funny thing is, he doesn’t tell the world till 60 years later.
So if he could sneak out of the camp, why would he sneak back into the camp he previously was in? And why would the Dutch Jew go back to his concentration camp? If you were them, wouldn’t you take off running!?
Could you sneak out of the local prison and then sneak into another local prison in your local area? Heck no. Well obviously those prison camps in WWII were packed to the gills with guards and machine gun towers. Seriously it’s a total scam.
Here’s another mistake in the story. He bribes the guards with cigarettes and chocolate from the Red Cross package. Don’t you think the guards would already be rummaging through those care packages? And would you, as a prison guard, let some prisoner escape and come back in for chocolate and a smoke? I sure as heck wouldn’t risk it for chocolate when I could just take it right out of their care packages for myself.
I feel somewhat the same disbelief.
Why haven’t we heard this story long before?
The only holocaust survivor I ever met talked about sneaking out of the camp at night and stealing eggs and such to bring back and share with his family and friends.
Yes. And the Zionists paid him well./sarc
“Then, during a radio interview a few years ago he opened up and told his story, and since then has gained recognition for his bravery from Holocaust organisations and politicians.
The International Raoul Wallenberg Foundation has honoured Mr Avey with a diploma. A spokesman in Israel said: ‘We feel that his story is genuine,’ adding that a fellow survivor corroborated his account to the foundation’s satisfaction.”
I’m still skeptical, but the Raoul Wallenberg Foundation says they have corroboration.
