However, there lies within this article something that should immediately stand out to any revisionist worth his or her salt. Take a look at the one of those names mentioned in the article - Mermelstein. That's right, Mermelstein. I found the following rather odd:
But mostly they stole my family. Of all of us, five brothers and sisters, my father, my mother, my grandmother, I'm on the only one who survived.
So he's the only Mermelstein who survived, then? Funny, as a more famous Mermelstein, our old friend Mel, also 'survived'. Mel was also from Hungary - he was born in Munkacs. As far as I am aware many of these Eastern European Jewish families were very clannish, and that in spite of the fact that Mermelstein was a fairly common name among Hungarian Jews there was little dispersion beyond their community base - this makes it likely that Mel and David Mermelstein were related. Maybe Mel, who lives across the other side of the US, is one of David's 'lost' brothers - according to Mel's memoirs, he 'lost' a brother too. Was this David Mermelstein born in Munkacs?
More intriguingly, is he the same David Mermelstein who submitted his details to this genealogy website, who was also from Munkacs (Munkach)? Did he have a brother called "Mor," "Moric" (or "Moritz"), and (at home) "Moishe"?
We could be onto something here, folks. Maybe Mel and David are related. Like Mel, David shared the same ability to escape impending doom through 'various twists of fate' - maybe it was a family thing, this uncanny Houdiniesque ability. Maybe someone who was said to have died in the 'Holocau$t' didn't. Maybe poor old Mel's family are all alive and well after all. As revisionists, we should be pleased to share what might be some wonderful news.
Also, have a look at this site which also relates the story (or should we say saga) of the Hungarian Jews and their mysterious treasure train:
Look at the figure of 800,000. "In 1945, the suit contends, U.S. troops looted the Hungarian Gold Train of valuables the Nazis seized from 800,000 Hungarian Jews." This was the figure for the entire Jewish population of Hungary - and according to the legend only half of these were 'transported' to Auschwitz where they were later allegedly poisoned with Zyklon-B. Yet, by some stroke of magic or supreme management (not the Nazis strong suit, according to some), goods belonging to the entire Hungarian Jewish population was somehow on this train. What complete and utter baloney. As if you could store the property of 800,000 people in 29 (or 24, dependent on which of the two cited sources you choose to accept) boxcars anyway.
The saga of the Magyar Jews is probably the biggest basket of lies of the entire 'Holocau$t' story - there are enough contradictions, anomalies and absurdities there to keep any historian busy for years.
