BUSTED !........ 'survivor' admits he is a fraud

Postby gonzo » 1 decade 4 years ago (Wed May 11, 2005 9:16 am)

got him!

something to make your day my friends !........They say a "historian" exposed him...



http://www.news.com.au/story/0,10117,15 ... 09,00.html

A SPANISH citizen who was chairman of an association of Spanish Republicans deported from France to Nazi concentration camps during World War II has admitted his tale of surviving the Flossenbuerg camp was a lie.

Enric Marco, 84, chaired the survivors' association right through to the eve of this week's 60th anniversary of the liberation of the Mauthausen camp in Austria, but now says he never set foot in a Nazi camp.
A historian researching the Mauthausen anniversary used the opportunity to look into events at Flossenbuerg – and failed to find any trace of Mr Marco ever having been there

Spain was neutral in World War II following its civil war, which ended in 1939, but thousands of Republicans hostile to the victorious regime of General Francisco Franco fled to France and were interned in camps from which many were later deported to Germany.

Mr Marco was already in Austria for the Mauthausen ceremony when the news of his deception emerged and the association ordered his return.

"I admit I never was interned in the Flossenbuerg camp, though I was in preventative detention accused of plotting against the Third Reich," he said.

He said he was freed and sent back to Spain in 1943.

Mr Marco has given hundreds of conferences in schools about his pretended experiences and wrote a biography called Memory of Hell in 1978.

He was also secretary general of the Communist CNT union and chairman of a pupil- parents federation.

The association's treasurer, Jesus Ruiz, said Mr Marco's deception was a sorry affair.

"This story is a boon for the (Holocaust) deniers," he said.

Not only was he not in any camp, but he was actually turned loose by the Nazis and sent home. I wonder what horrors he claimed to witness.

Gives a whole new meaning to the Der Stürmer cartoons.

The saddest thing is that he must be one of thousands who have lied about their experiences during WWII...

Well, more correctly called Revisionists and advocates of science, it is indeed a "boon".

And there is not a single 'survivor'/'eyewitness' tale, which supposedly confirms the story as it is alleged, that hasn't been or cannot be shredded by Revisionists at this forum. A simple fact.

The 'holocau$t', falling apart faster than a cheap suit.

If it can't happen as alleged, then it didn't.

Just the words that came to my mind. Hopefully the more cases like this there are, the braver historians will be in examining and exposing them. These guys have been conning us for far too long, and I only wonder how many liars there are still peddling their lurid tales.

Then there's Arnold Friedman, re-named Rudolf Vrba, the supposed co-author (the other author never surfaced) of the 1944 War Refugee Board Report who testified at the 1988 Zundel Holocaust trial in Toronto that:

- he watched the Birkenau Cremation chimneys belch smoke and flames, even though engineering drawings show the Cremation furnaces were built to prevent the release of smoke or flames,

- he could tell the number of inmates being transported to the Crematoriums by the sound of the trucks passing his barrack, even though everyone knows this is not possible, and

- he could tell by the smoke color whether the burning corpses were fat or skinny, Ukranians or Poles, even though smoke experts testifed this is impossible.

Friedman doesn't have to admit he's a fraud, his trial testimony proves he is another lying Communist stooge.

It is called the"martyr's syndrome".

It is quite understandable if you ever served in an army.
No need for "Psychoanalysis" on this one.
It's self evident.

Is there an article somewhere that lists the physically impossible lies of the supposed witnesses?

A biography of the deceptive Enric Marco by Javier Cercas came out in 2018. It is said:
"For three decades, Enric Marco, a Catalan mechanic, was a prominent public face of Spanish survivors of the Holocaust — president of a survivors’ association, the recipient of a number of awards and distinctions. He spoke at Parliament and frequently visited schools, well into his 80s, to tearfully recall his time at the Flossenbürg concentration camp; the torture and killings he witnessed; his eight months of solitary confinement. In 2005, the story was revealed to be a hoax."

Here is a recent review:
https://www.nytimes.com/2018/08/28/books/review-impostor-javier-cercas-enric-marco.html
This may shed light on the motivations of such people. In Marco's case, he seems to have just been a pathological liar who saw nothing wrong in deception if was reckoned to be in a good cause.

May I speculate that the general nature of Marco's deceit as per the hoax is far from unique.
It's easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled
