Numerous discrepancies exist with the records and with his story - discrepancies too significant and too numerous to be offhandedly dismissed as mere clerical errors
Any failure on Elie's part to comment or explain can only reinforce the doubts that have been raised.
Obviously, investigation is in order. For revisionists, this is an opportunity absolutely not to be neglected.
Concerning the tattoo; we should not be unduly surprised if we should get to see one sometime in the future. "Elie" has had more than enough time to have remedied that problem. Surely a discreet tattoo artist can have been found who could produce the necessary tattoo - even one having the appearance of age. The appearance of fading by age could then be given as explanation for its not being visible in photographs.
Or "Elie" can persist in the old tried and true dodge that such unseemly accusations do not merit reply.
That dodge has very worked well for them so far. Deborah Lipstadt, et al., have developed it into an art form.
I'm not an old-timer here, but I welcome you to the forum just the same. Especially with the great message you have put forth.
Yes! Bringing down Elie the Weasel can be done; therefore it should be done.
I go along with The Warden that EW would probably make more problems for himself than solve any by trying to get a tattoo now. I think we can expect him to apply your second dodge and depend on his PR firm and all those loyal money-bags who fund universities like BU and Chapman, and have so much influence over people like Presidents of the U.S.!
Therefore, the strategy is to press hard, not worrying about what "they" might come back with. If we've learned anything in H. Revisionism, it's that "they" don't have any ammunition. They do have plenty of money, of course.
We can only make up for that with our enthusiasm, hard work, committment, dedication and participation. Everyone can think of something they can do on a continual basis, even if it's only offering one hour a week. In that case, write a letter somewhere, or pass some new information along to others. Certainly encourage as many as one can reach out to, to view and read the website, eliewieseltattoo.com
We can't have too many videos on youtube, imo. The more people "run into them", the more they will think "Hey, this must be real." The really great warriors for truth are those who will venture out to Elie Wiesel public appearances with signs and flyers to demonstrate and talk to the press.
