(The Jewish Chronicle) This week, the Jewish press announced the death of a prominent rabbi — Dow Marmur — who, like many diaspora Jews, somehow managed to “survive the Holocaust” and live in six different countries — Poland, Uzbekistan, Sweden, Britain, Canada and Israel — as if he were a “citizen of the world.”
And like millions of other Jews, Marmur managed to escape his native Poland as the Germans swept in from the West by fleeing east — and finding safety deep behind Soviet lines, as his obituary in the JC freely admits:
…When the Germans invaded [Poland] in 1939, the family fled to Lwow (today Lviv in Ukraine) but were promptly transported by the Soviets to Siberia. After more than a year struggling to survive, they “escaped” to Uzbekistan where, from the age of seven, the young Dow helped feed the family by selling soap on the streets of Fergana.
When the war ended the Marmurs were repatriated to Katowice [Poland]. Only in 1948 did they finally manage to join his father’s sisters in Gothenburg, Sweden and nine years of living in constant fear came to an end…
What did Jews have to fear living safely behind Soviet lines during the war? As we have previously shown, there are plenty of photographs of these Jewish refugees smiling for the camera while they lived out the war in relative peace far away from any fighting.
Dow Marmur’s experience in World War II was hardly unique — according to a 1943 Carnegie Peace Foundation report, millions of other Jews found refugee behind Soviet lines during the war:
Of some 1,750,000 Jews who succeeded in escaping the Axis since the outbreak of hostilities, about 1,600,000 were evacuated by the Soviet Government from Eastern Poland and subsequently occupied Soviet territory…About 150,000 others managed to reach Palestine, the United States, and other countries beyond the seas. (April 1943, No. 389, as quoted in The Fraud of Soviet Anti-Semitism by Herbert Aptheker, p. 6, 1962)
And right after the end of the war, Collier’s Weekly Magazine — in its June 9, 1945 issue — stated the following:
Russia has 5,800,000 Jews, 41 percent of the present Jewish population of the world, of whom 2,200,000 have migrated to the Soviet Union since 1939 to escape the Nazis.
Louis Levine, President of the American Jewish Council for Russian Relief, wrote on October 30, 1946,
“At the outset of the war, Jews were amongst the first evacuated from the western regions threatened by the Hitlerite invaders, and shipped to safety east of the Urals. Two million Jews were thus saved.”
And David Bergelson, Jewish journalist, wrote in the Moscow Yiddish paper Ainikeit, on December 5th, 1942,
“Thanks to the evacuation, the majority (80%) of the Jews in the Ukraine, White Russia, Lithuania and Latvia before the arrival of the Germans were rescued.”
So here we have two independent sources that account for around 2 million of the alleged 6 Million™ Jews who were supposed to have been killed in the Holocaust — but actually survived the war in the Soviet Union. Why hasn’t the official 6 Million™ total been adjusted down to accommodate these facts? Need we ask?
According to the highly unreliable U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum — a pro-exterminationist propaganda mouthpiece — there were only 2,000,000 Jews left in Russia in 1950 — but that actual number is still debated today — 5.8 million cited by Collier’s is probably high.
The exterminationists will claim that if these 2 million Jews had not escaped to Russia, then 8 Million Jews would have died at the hands of the “Nazis” — but that would be impossible because the Kabbalistic rabbis would never allow their magical 6 Million™ figure to change.
Yet the Jewish population in Russia today is allegedly only 165,000 — which means that almost 6 Million™ Jews who were alive in Russia after the war have somehow “disappeared” — yet no one seems overly concerned about millions of unaccounted for Jews since they officially died in Gas Chambers™ and disappeared into the sky as smoke from the crematoria at Auschwitz somehow without leaving a literal mountain of ash behind.
We know millions of Russian Jews went to Israel since the end of the war, but what about the rest of them? Probably they went to the U.S. and western Europe, just like Rabbi Dow Marmur, and hoped that no one would notice.
