Rabbi Arthur Schneier was born in Vienna and fled from the Nazis at age of 9,
moving to Budapest with his widowed mother. There, he survived the

The figure “six million” Jews killed in the holocaust has
been repeated so many times that it has come to be accepted by
the Jews as absolute truth, and anyone who dares question its
veracity is automatically and vehemently attacked by their
leaders as an “anti-Semite”.
The New York Times, then a non-Zionist newspaper,
commissioned Harrison Salisbury after World War II to do a world
survey of the Jewish population, and his findings were duly

He twice escaped from forced-labor camps, and left Hungary after
diplomat Raoul Wallenburg provided him with a Swedish-protected
passport and declared him a Swedish citizen. Lantos said “these
miraculous, worthless pieces of paper worked”, and later immigrated
to the U.S.
After the way, he managed to reunite with his childhood friend Annette
Tillemann, who had escaped to Switzerland, and later immigrated to the
