Holocaust Hoaxer: ‘Lied to Enhance the Truth’

A shocking insight into the duplicitous minds of Jewish holocaust hoaxers has been provided with the confession by a prominent “survivor” that he made up Auschwitz lies “in order to enhance the truth.”

Joseph Hirt, who has spent the last 15 years touring schools and educational institutions all over the US East Coast, was exposed as a liar last month by a local schoolteacher.


Hirt claimed he had been sent to Auschwitz and was given prisoner number tattoo I94517, but “spared the gas chamber because he identified himself as a nurse and was pressed into service by a doctor who was himself a camp inmate.”

He also said he came “face to face with the so-called Angel of Death, Dr. Josef Mengele, while at Auschwitz,” that he had escaped from that camp, and had also attended the Olympics in 1936 in Berlin with his father where he saw Adolf Hitler refuse to shake hands with American Olympian Jesse Owens.

After all of these claims were exposed as ridiculous lies, Hirt then went into hiding, but has now issued a formal apology via his local newspaper, Lancaster Online in Pennsylvania.


However, what makes his apology so shocking is that it is not just a “sorry” for lying to tens of thousands of people over the past 15 years, but is instead a justification for the lies, saying they were necessary because so many other people say the holocaust was a lie and is exaggerated.

“I am writing today to apologize publicly for harm caused to anyone because of my inserting myself into the descriptions of life in Auschwitz,” Hirt wrote.

“I was not a prisoner there. I did not intend to lessen or overshadow the events which truly happened there by falsely claiming to have been personally involved,” he said.

“Both young listeners and adults responded to my presentations with feeling and often with a desire to share in the task of never forgetting and bearing witness. It wasn’t about me.

“I was wrong in using an untruth (my presence) in an attempt to enhance the important truth of the suffering and death of so many—not only Jewish people, but also others held in disdain by the Nazi movement.

“I was wrong. I ask forgiveness. I used poor judgment and faulty reasoning, risking a sullying of the truth I was trying to share.”

He went on to say that “Information about concentration camp behavior exists because of the sharing of details by a relatively small number of inmates who managed to survive. Soon Holocaust memories will be held entirely by those who were not there!”

He then also tried to explain why he had a fake prisoner number tattooed on his forearm. The number actually belonged to Primo Levi, another famous “survivor” who later committed suicide.

Incredibly, Hirt denied that he had tattooed the number on his arm in order to pretend to be a survivor:

“To commemorate his life and as a constant reminder to myself of his [Levi’s] influence on my thinking, I had his camp number tattooed on my left forearm—in no way an attempt to take on his identity, but in an effort to incorporate his symbol as a way of remembering him and mourning his loss.”

Hirt then went on to say that he had started with his lies after visiting Auschwitz and finding it a “clean and polished tourist destination.”

Furthermore, he said, “visitors commented quite openly that stories circulating about Nazi cruelty, persecution, and death were ‘propaganda.’ Laughter and joking accompanied denial.”

It was this “flagrant denial and ignorance of the truth” which “made me determined to keep the memories alive,” Hirt said.

Thus the logic: make up lies, because too many people are questioning the holocaust story, so lies upon lies have to be generated to “keep the memory alive.”

    (Jesus speaking to the Jews) “You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.”
