I guess lying doesn't pay after all.. she's one who got caught but I wonder how many other stories have been faked to make the almighty dollar from the holocaust?.



Woman who MADE UP entire bestselling holocaust memoir is forced to pay back $22.5 million after her lies are revealed 17 years later... and she's not even Jewish Misha Defonseca won $22.5 in a copyright case against her publisher It was later revealed that her bestselling holocaust memoir was mostly fictional Defonseca has been ordered to forfeit the money by a Massachusetts court

Silly woman.
I don't think many survivors from that time have lied and maybe this is a one off.
Couldn't she have just made it a work of fiction? I bet she has spent a good deal of that money already..

Well, what about the bible then? They push that as truth but have no proof.

I was just being silly, its the weather I think


I was thinking like you mentioned above, what if she's spent a lot of it! With that much dosh I'm sure you could make some of it vanish before it reached court. I wonder how much interest was earnt while she had it in her bank?

Also she must be getting on now so is she bothered? she may have already paid for her retirement home and stuff.

Well here's a dead giveaway:


One of the pack: In her memoir, Defonseca wrote that she lived for a time with a pack of wolves while hiding from Nazis


It doesn't even sound like she was trying too hard to be believable.

Utter BS.
The ball point pen was in use by the RAF in 1939 it was invented in 1938.
The Biro ball point pen was made Under Licence By the British Government in 1939 yes People 1939
and was Issued to all Allied Aircrews from 1939 to 1945 and the Total Aircrew was over 232,400.
You do know holocaust denying is no allowed on ATS btw?.
Also people claim it had ballpoint pen in but has not been proved.

It seems in order to deny ignorance we must deny the hologram/caust as well.
I would like a mods clarification though.
Mods, do we need to lie??

The problem is holocaust denial is illegal in many countries...If ATS allows it to go on these countries will just ban ATS.

en.wikipedia.org...

Plus it attracts nazis.

Yeah the holocaust is a complete lie!

Hitler and the NAZI's just wanted to spread love and happyness to all the non aryran and anti NAZI peope of Europe.

Auschwitz which I visted? Well just a happy holiday camp! Those were not gas chambers I saw just happy fun fun rooms and the crematoriums? Well just to keep people warm. The mass graves and piles of bodys found? Just people that died of all the joy and fun!
.................
O if you have not worked it out in your little pea brains (and you have to have a pea brain to deny the holocaust) i was being sarcastic!

Interesting thing ehh?
Does this mean this woman's lie cannot be reported on in other countries??
It is a form of denial.
There was a holocaust for sure, millions of folks died.
Problem is, the jews hijacked the victim card and have played it since.
Just what if all of the hologram/caust stories were as fake as this womans??
It is not the fault of ATS that other countries cannot stand up for the right to free speech.

Diffrence between a fraudster and complete holacaust denial.

And yes I too get sick of some jews hjacking it and makeing it primary about them when so many other groups suffered too along side them.

Still people with agenders aside it still happened and many groups suffered.
