"Messenger of Humanity" Elie Wiesel called a fraud in Hungarian paper.


For decades, Elie Wiesel has marketed himself as a “holocaust survivor” who commands exorbitant speaking fees for telling stories about his alleged experiences in various concentration camps. Now a major newspaper in Hungary has published a story by Mikos Gruner, a Hungarian Jew who was rescued by American forces along side a Lazar Wiesel. Elie claims to be this Lazar. Gruner says he is not.

Gruner claims Wiesel stole the identity of a real camp inmate and may have even stolen the story for which he won a Nobel Peace Prize. Gruner has been trying to tell the world that Elie is a fraud since 1986.

Lazar is pictured in a famous photo of inmates liberated by US forces at Buchenwald.

Elie Wiesel has his own left-wing non-profit foundation. The foundation claims to have lost 15 million dollars to Bernie Madoff. Wiesel also claims to have lost much of his personnel fortune to Madoff as well.
