'gassing victims' later found alive

Postby Tomt » 4 years 9 months ago (Thu Sep 24, 2015 11:49 am)

Has there been any stories that have come out over the years where a survivors family which were thought to have been gassed but were later found to have been transported to another camp and ended up somewhere else after the war? I know about the one from the Montel show about the hanging.

[For clarity and the intent of the OP, the thread title was changed from gassing victim to 'gassing victims' later found alive. M1]

Not precisely what you asked, but kinda relevant:

Jews presumed gassed at Auschwitz reappear at Belsen

The following is from the June 18, 1945 affidavit of Yugoslavian Jew and Doctor of Medicine Ruth Guttman, aged 32, given to Lieutenant-Colonel John Genn of the War Crimes Investigation team at Belsen. This affidavit became Exhibit 184 at the First Belsen Trial:

Selections of prisoners for one purpose or another were a frequent occurrence in AUSCHWITZ, taking place on an average probably three times a week. We were never told what such selections were for, but it was generally believed that some were for the Gas Chambers. All I can say about them is that they were usually conducted in the open by an SS AUFSEHERIN, though on one occasion I saw, at a distance, one made by DOCTOR MENGELE outside a Hut for which the women were paraded naked and from which some were taken away in a Transport. I am myself convinced that this selection was to find women suffering from Scarlatina, of which there was a mild epidemic in the Camp at the time. I do not know what happened to the women who were taken away on the transport. Generally, in regard to these selections, I can say that I have, since coming to BELSEN, seen many acquaintances who were taken away on Transports from AUSCHWITZ after such selections, which had been for working parties or for moves to other places. On the other hand, I remember one or two transports which we believed to be going to the Gas Chamber, and from among my acquaintances on such Transports I have never seen any at BELSEN or anywhere else. I myself left AUSCHWITZ having been selected for a Transport in the middle of October 1944 and was taken to an Arbeitslager at GUBEN. I remained there, continuing my work as Block Doctor, until the end of January 1945. I then came to BELSEN, arriving in early February.

Nazis tried to create super-soldiers, using steroids ... they sought to reanimate the dead—coffins of famous Germanic warriors were found hidden in a mine, with plans to bring them back to life at the war’s end.

This is what I was looking for pretty much. I found a bunch of You tube stories of Holocaust survivor reunions. They really didn't come out and say that they though that they died in the gas chamber. I am pretty sure that would be edited out. This was in the last 10 years. If we had internet back in the 40's I am sure that its possible that many more would have been found, Even in the 90's when Phil Donahue and Montel Williams were doing the David Cole rounds it took that to discover someone who was thought to have been executed was actually alive and well.

Regarding the Hollander brothers, the one who was thought dead was Zoltan. Because he was actually hanged by a Nazi. But the rope broke and he either escaped or played dead. I can't remember all the details, but I think Mark Weber wrote an article about it.

Here is the article Weber wrote.

"It is dangerous to be right in matters on which the established authorities are wrong".
