Edith Fox. What a made-up bunch of baloney. She says they made Jews run as a fitness test and shot those who didn't run fast enough. Her mother didn't run fast enough so she was shot. 13 year old Edith, then, rather than being in shock and hysterical, courageously asks the nazis to shoot her too, but they said "no, you are going to work." Then up ahead: A rabbi with both feet cut off.
Then she's in the line where Mengele sent people to the right or left. Not because this really happened to her, but she knows that this is what you say when you tell your Auschwitz survivor story.
I saw people coming into Auschwitz from different places who were sent to take a shower and were killed. Then they took them to the crematorium.
She doesn't know that the crematorium was in the same facility, and so in her mind they take all the dead victims somewhere else, to the crematorium.
He told me to come to that spot once a week and he’d throw me a package. Shoes or clothes. Maybe they were from people they killed in the gas chamber, I don’t know.
She's ripping off the the Herman Rosenblat 'apple over the fence story.' But as historians pointed out: you can't just walk up to a fence from the outside at a concentration camp, and throw stuff over.
As the war was ending, Nazis put all of us who were strong enough and could still run fast
I've never encountered another alleged holocaust survivor who claimed the "run fast life or death fitness test" But same thing happened to her again at the end of the war, in a totally different part of Europe with different personnel. Yet no other alleged holocaust survivor mentions running fast as a test.
As the war was ending, Nazis put all of us who were strong enough and could still run fast – the young ones – on a freight train with open boxcars without water, without food.
Open box cars sets up her story of escape, but clearly the Germans would have closed the boxcar door.
