Anne Frank’s step-sister and Holocaust survivor Eva Schloss claims photos of the Soviet liberation of Auschwitz are FAKE because soldiers hadn’t brought cameras and were taken at other camps

  • Eva, 90, appeared on Good Morning Britain to discuss surviving the Holocaust
  • Today marks 75th anniversary of liberation of concentration camp Auschwitz
  • Eva was sent to Auschwitz aged 15 with her mother, Fritzi and father and brother
  • Says pictures showing Russian liberation of Auschwitz aren’t real, as none exist

A Holocaust survivor has claimed that photos showing the liberation of Auschwitz aren’t real, because none were taken at the Nazi-occupied concentration camp.

Anne Frank’s step-sister Eva Schloss, 90, who was sent to the notorious camp in Nazi-occupied Poland at the age of 15, appeared on Good Morning Britain today to discuss the 75th anniversary of its liberation.

Eva was 23-years-old when her mother Fritzi married Otto Frank, making her the posthumous stepsister to Anne Frank, who had died eight years earlier in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in 1945.

She spent eight months at Auschwitz before the camp was liberated, and avoided being taken on a death march by the Nazis who fled with prisoners to try to cover up their crimes, because she and her mother overslept and were left behind.

However, the survivor has alleged that pictures of Soviet Red Army liberating the camp are fake, because Russian soldiers hadn’t brought cameras, and says there was a heavy snowfall at Auschwitz at the time, which isn’t shown in pictures.

She claimed that the photos, which apparently show the liberation, were in fact taken at other camps, but she didn’t give an explain her theory further in the interview.

She said: 'It wasn’t just Auschwitz , they liberated all the camps in [Nazi-occupied] Poland and that is really not known.

'Another thing I wanted to point out, there are many pictures about the Russians liberating Auschwitz and there’s never any snow.

‘Only much later they took pictures, you see now, but this is definitely not in Auschwitz and not the liberation of Auschwitz.’

It is estimated that 1.3 million people were sent to Auschwitz, and 1.1 million died there including 960,000 Jews, 74,000 non-Jewish Poles, 21,000 Roma people, 15,000 Soviet prisoners of war, and up to 15,000 other Europeans.

Eva told of her horrific experience in the camp, detaining the inhumane conditions of the Nazi-occupied camp, and telling how she would wake up to dead bodies in her shared bunk.

She said: 'This was an enormous area of concentration camps. There were tens of thousands of people in inhumane conditions, without food or clothing.

‘With illnesses and lice, no toilets no drinking water, working in the hot summer the big snow, you slept in a bunk with eight people.’

She added how it was ‘very awful’ in the morning to find the person to you hadn’t woken up, and you’d ‘spent half the night next to a dead body’.

Like the Frank family, Eva and her family were discovered hiding in Amsterdam, arrested by Nazi soldiers and sent to a concentration camp when Eva was just 15.

Eva and her mother survived the notorious Auschwitz camp, however her father and brother didn’t.

On their return to Amsterdam Fritzi fell in love with Otto Frank, the only member of the Frank family to survive the Holocaust, and they married in 1953.

She told of how she had originally thought her mother had been sent to her death after being selected to be gassed, and was forced to tell her father the news.

’ My mother was actually selected to be gassed,’ told Eva.

'We had to parade naked and if they thought you were too thin, you couldn’t work anymore, you went to the wrong side.

‘I thought I had lost her but again a miracle, she was not lost.’

When asked how she survived the horrific camp, Eva told how she simply felt too young to die, and wanted to go on and ‘get married and have a family’ - but says it was ‘miracles’ that saved her.

She said: 'For me it was when I was arrested on my 15th birthday, I didn’t want to die, who wants to die when they’re young?

'We had a beautiful life in Vienna, I wanted to get married and have a family so I never gave up.

‘Never the less, without a miracle I wouldn’t be here, little things that saved your life in some kind of ways.’

Imagine that: she missed out on a DeathMarch™ because she overslept.

Because.

She.

Overslept.

It is estimated that 1.3 million people were sent to Auschwitz, and 1.1 million died there including 960,000 Jews, 74,000 non-Jewish Poles, 21,000 Roma people, 15,000 Soviet prisoners of war, and up to 15,000 other Europeans.

From 4 million, to 1.5 million, to 1.1 million, and now 960,000 – those numbers just keep dropping and dropping. However, it’s an arithmetic miracle: it still adds up to SixMillion™. Amazing how that works.

However, the survivor has alleged that pictures of Soviet Red Army liberating the camp are fake, because Russian soldiers hadn’t brought cameras, and says there was a heavy snowfall at Auschwitz at the time, which isn’t shown in pictures.

So does this make Eva a Holocaust denier? Shouldn’t she be in jail for saying that?

Original Soviet footage of the Liberation of Auschwitz

Have fun, this backs up Anne Frank’s step-sister’s claim of snow and the lack of it in all the alleged photos. Back this up. It was hard to find.

The first photos taken by allies at Auschwitz were not taken on liberation day as the Russian and Ukrainian troops didn’t have cameras.

Read the OP before shitting up the thread with your hot takes.

I read it dip shit and I don’t need your direction.

You obviously didn’t read the OP.

Of course I did and the recorded history supports exactly what I stated.

Winter of 45 in that part of Poland wasn’t particularly hard or snowy and it’s long been known the photos were not taken on liberation day.

Bullshit - the liberation photos are still being passed off as legit. Make yourself useful and go tell History Channel they done goofed.

The actual liberation video is posted above and contains snow backing up what Anne Frank’s step-sister is saying.

“After” dumbass, “After”.

Several of the Auschwitz camps had been abandoned and had been “liquidated” before the Russians and Ukrainians even arrived.

Auschwitz was not a single camp, it was a series of camps scattered around the area locally.

What a clown. You just make shit up as you go along don’t you @TWR

January 5, 1945

Snow is lying thickly on the ground across the Auschwitz complex. Temperatures are well below freezing.

And one more time just for you, the photos were not taken on liberation day.

Oh yes - I forgot I need to repeat myself with you.

I AM REPLYING TO YOUR STATEMENT ABOUT THE WEATHER (which is obviously bullshit)

Regarding the photos - did the “survivors” leave and then all come back for a photo op for later when they all get reunited?

Holocaust survivors Miriam Ziegler, Paula Lebovics, Gabor Hirsch and Eva Kor are pictured above with the original image of them as children taken at Auschwitz in 1945. They are seen above in this 2015 photo

And you’re still failing to grasp even the simplest details.

Snow was common as were freezing temps in January of 45 in that part of Poland, thus “not particularly cold or snowy” is perfectly accurate. It was a fairly mild winter, that doesn’t mean it was tropical conditions.

What was Liberation day? When were the first photos taken?

Let’s clear this up. Which is it?

Many of those photos we see were taken by the Germans, not the liberators and yes, a great many of the prisoners who had been marched off during the liberation returned because they had no where else to go.

In many cases once the guards got them away from the camps they themselves took off worried that the Russians would overtake them.

It’s long been noted that many of the photos of Auschwitz taken by the Allies were of reenactments AFTER the liberation.

Read, learn, it won’t hurt.
