For Aging Survivors, a Prescription for Disaster

David Irving comments:

ROSENSAFT? That sweetsounding name rings a bell. Ah yes, a Menachem Rosensaft is said to be married to a "Hadassah Rosenzaft". In her previous existence she was none other than Ada Bimko, so we are told, the perjured witness at the Belsen trial whose testimony served to send several of her former captors to the gallows.
   Sample and relish her evidence, roll it around your tongue like a fine wine: an SS man whom she had befriended (!) had led her into an upstairs room of the Auschwitz gas chamber, where she had seen for herself the huge cylinders of gas and pipes leading into the gas chamber below. [*]
   Ahem, the poison gas that all the other survivors testified to was Zyklon B, a crystalline pesticide substance that came in small tins.
   Needless to say, Prof Robert Jan Van Pelt, the Auschwitz expert who was highly paid to testify for Lipstadt in the Lipstadt trial, while relying heavily on the Bimko evidence, failed somehow to include the sentences referred to, and had some difficulty in Court under cross-examination explaining why he had omitted them.
   They did after all tend to cast "a reasonable doubt" on her evidence, which is a polite way of saying that they showed up Rosensaft/Bimko as a homicidal liar.

THE American government, meanwhile, should accord all American Holocaust survivors the status of veterans of the American armed services, and free access to Veterans Administration hospitals and facilities. The French, Swiss, Austrian, Polish and other European governments should also contribute meaningfully to a fund to provide comprehensive medical care and other fundamental social services to those whom their predecessors betrayed or robbed.

Menachem Rosensaft, a partner in the New York law firm of Ross & Hardies, is the founding chairman of the International Network of Children of Jewish Holocaust Survivors, and a member of the United States Holocaust Memorial Council.

CORRECTION: I am informed as follows: "Ada Bimko (died 1997) was the mother, not wife, of Menachem Rosensaft (born at Belsen in 1948). Ada's husband was Josef Rosensaft, who married her in 1946; he died in 1975. Menachem's wife is Bloch Rosensaft, also active in the Holocaust racket, but not as notorious as her relatives."
