The Irene Weisberg Zisblatt Big Lie Timeline (continuously updated)


Irene Weisberg Zisblatt came out on the Holocaust Promotion Scene in 1994, after a "fifty year silence" about her experience as a Jewish teenaged "Holocaust Survivor". Over her next fifteen years as a Holocaust Promoter, her stories would become more and more ridiculous, outrageous, scatological, racist, and impossible.

Irene Zisblatt claims :
  • She escaped from inside a gas chamber, (1995 - Current)
  • She barely avoided having her unblemished skin turned into a lampshade, (1995 - Today)
  • Doctor Mengele removed her tattoo, (1995 (but not Dr. Mengele) - Today)
  • She was thrown over the electrified barbed wire at the camps after escaping the gas chamber, naked, onto a train to another camp (1995 - Today)
  • A Nazi nurse gave her a phony lethal injection, (1995 - Today)
  • She repeatedly swallowed and defecated four diamonds for almost a year and a half while an inmate of the German concentration camps. (1998 - Today)
  • She was Mengele's guinea pig, and survived several "experiments", including one to make her eyes blue. (1995 (but Mengele isn't mentioned) - Today)
  • Multiple claims of Nazis draining blood from Jews. (2008? - Today)
  • She claims she General Patton visited her at a hospital in Pilzen, Czechoslovakia, where he gave her his "scarf" and his four star "buttons" (2008 - Today)
  • Along with even more outrageous, racist lies. (1994 - Today)
This is a Timeline, started on November 16th, 2009, attempting to sort how her story has exponentially become exaggerated and invented over the years Her fifty year silence has given the friends of truth a great gift - She left a trace of how her lies were created all across the internet and on video.


Zisblatt's Dreams Later Become Our Nightmares

In 1994, "Holocaust Survivor" Irene Weisberg Zisblatt broke a fifty year silence and came out on the Holocaust Promotion Scene.

Zisblatt went on the "March of the Living", which takes young Jews to the concentration camps, along with "Holocaust Survivors."

Zisblatt gave a speech at this event at Birkenau. 

This essay describes the speech - The Hell They Lived Through Built The Hell They Live Through

Key aspects of Zisblatt's speech emerge as DREAMS of hers. Later on they become reality.

Excerpt : 

By: Cynthia Morris
Ft. Lauderdale, Florida

In the past fifty years, the guilt felt by each survivor has surfaced in thousands of different ways. Three fairly common ways are nightmares, giving up on life, and keeping that period of their lives a secret. Irene Zisblatt told of her own nightmare while revisiting Birkenau on the March of the Living in 1994. In her dream, it is Passover and her entire family, who perished in the camps, is sitting around the Sedar table. Her brother is asking the four questions, but when she tries to find a chair for herself at the table, there is none. Everyone at the table explains to her that before she may sit with them, she must earn her chair. Now she realizes that in order for her to deserve her seat, she must first teach children about the Holocaust. The reason she feels that it is the children she must educate, is her own feeling of guilt for surviving as a child, while so many children did not (Zisblatt 4/8/94). Other survivors have horrifying dreams of what they saw while they were in the camps. One survivor kept dreaming of seeing a baby being torn apart by a Nazi and never understood why. It was not until May of 1994 that she realized that she had witnessed the incident during her internment at Birkenau (Zisblatt 5/24/94).

Zisblatt Claims To Be Featured In The Book Heroes of the Holocaust 

In 1995, Zisblatt read a story from the book “Heroes of the Holocaust” and had everyone believe she was in Pilzen, liberated by General Patton.

LISA LEITER Herald Staff Writer
Marvin Schneider, president of the Florida Social Club at Century Village in Pembroke Pines, recently asked Miami author Arnold Geier to talk to the group about his new book, Heroes of the Holocaust. Schneider also invited the condominium’s Holocaust Survivors Club to the event.
When survivor Irene Zisblatt, 64, got word that Geier would be coming to the Village, she was thrilled. She had read a story in Geier’s book about three girls in a labor camp in Pilsen, Germany. The girls were wearing KL dresses. Konzent lager means concentration camp in German. The girls were liberated more than 50 years ago.
Zisblatt, who was liberated from her labor camp at age 14, thinks she may be one of these girls. So she called Geier, who gave her the address and telephone number of one of the girls, Helena Finkelstein, who lives in New Jersey. Zisblatt plans to contact her next month, when she goes to New Jersey to visit her children. Finkelstein is apparently in Israel now.
This could be the making for a very emotional reunion, she said.
“This is the first person I’ve found since liberation that was in the same place as me,” said Zisblatt, originally from Hungary. “I don’t remember her personally, but we can try to remember each other and rebuild our past.”
Although she may not be her friend from those dark days, Zisblatt is still eager to meet Finkelstein and to try to find the other girl in the story, Hedy Greenstein.
“In 50 years, I have not met one person that was together with me, so I thought everybody was dead,” she said. “This is the first person that was kind of in my footsteps. It was so exciting to me when I saw that in the book.”
Zisblatt is working on a book about her life as a Holocaust survivor, which should be published this year.

On Videotape providing "testimony" for Steven Spielberg's Survivors of the Shoah Visual History Foundation

Irene Weisberg Zisblatt gives an approximately three and a half hour videotaped "testimony" for Steven Spielberg's USC Survivors of the Shoah Visual History Foundation. 

In 2009, Eric Hunt accessed the private archives. Although the archives give researchers no way to save videos they view, Hunt, being an expert in computers, found a workaround and saved the remarkable videos, which not only disprove Zisblatt, but Steven Spielberg's Oscar winning Holocaust Documentary "The Last Days", which Zisblatt is the star of.

Irene Zisblatt piles on the lies in the following video. Lampshades, tattoo removal, and phony lethal injections.
In the following video, ridiculous liar Irene Zisblatt describes how she escaped from inside a Gas Chamber.


The Last Days

The Steven Spielberg produced documentary "The Last Days" is released. Zisblatt is by far the most memorable liewitness, and her story about repeatedly swallowing and defecating four diamonds is relayed in four star reviews in newspapers worldwide.

The Fifth Diamond

Irene Weisberg Zisblatt publishes her memoir, The Fifth Diamond.

The Fifth Diamond

  1. Over sixty-five years after the start of the events described, Zisblatt created an “autobiography” which features:
    1.  Sixty eight words of dialogue on page two alone
    2.  One thousand words of dialogue by page twenty.
    3.  An unbelievable and humanly impossible approximately 8,060 total words of dialogue (including roughly 1,250 words of “inner dialogue”) “remembered” more than 65 years after the start of the events described.
  2.  Authors and Artists publishers, Inc., and CEO Joan Mayor, who Zisblatt claims recruited her, published Irene Weisberg Zisblatt’s “autobiography”, The Fifth Diamond in the year 2008.
  3. Steven Spielberg, who produced the 1999 Academy Award winning “documentary” The Last Days ((which features Zisblatt’s lies refuted by her 1995 Survivors of the Shoah Visual History Foundation testimony (founded by Spielberg)) in which Zisblatt is prominently featured, gives credibility to Zisblatt’s vicious lies and Spielberg provides the sole quote on the back cover of The Fifth Diamond, promoting Zisblatt as being both honest and uplifting:
    1. ”Irene Zisblatt eloquently speaks and inspires today’s generation with her personal story of remembrance and survival.” - Steven Spielberg
  4. The book The Fifth Diamond is described inside as cataloged in the Library of Congress under “History/Auschwitz/WWII/Autobiography”.
  5. On page xvii of The Fifth Diamond, a genealogy chart states that Zisblatt’s brother, “David Seigelstein – seven – perished in Auschwitz.” However, videotape testimony from “The Survivors of the Shoah Visual History Foundation” Plaintiff accessed at Stanford University proves that Zisblatt herself claimed in 1995 that her brother died around the age of five of Scarlet Fever in Hungary well before deportation. 
  6. Zisblatt claims to have repeatedly ingested, defecated and sifted through her feces in order to hide four diamonds given to Zisblatt by her mother to hold onto to buy bread, over the year and several months Zisblatt spent in Nazi concentration camps. This, despite not mentioning anything past swallowing the diamonds once on arrival in her original 1995 Shoah Foundation Visual History foundation videotaped testimony. 
  7. The “autobiography”, as categorized in the Library of Congress, impossibly jumps back and forth to and from a Lithuanian Jewish girl’s first person narrative, although “Sabka” is at times hundreds of miles away from, and hasn’t even met Zisblatt yet. Somehow “Sabka” tells her story with dozens of lines of dialogue, which she hears and says. This, despite the fact that Sabka allegedly dies, coincidentally on the day Germany officially surrenders. “Sabka” also barely speaks to Irene in the camps, due to the threat of “gassing” for speaking to another inmate. To highlight Zisblatt’s blatant inconsistency, Sabka is Polish in Zisblatt’s videotaped testimony. Plaintiff questions if this character even existed, and certainly not to the degree of following Zisblatt through every stage and location of suffering, even being separated and reunited several times by bizarre escapes, such as Zisblatt’s “escape from the inside of a gas chamber.”
  8. Irene Weisberg Zisblatt claims to have been selected to have her skin turned into a lampshade but avoided it when Ilsa Koch (the German woman that, after the war, Jews and the Allies promoted as an inhuman, monstrous character, claiming that she made lampshades out of Jewish skin, etc.,) didn’t show up when Zisblatt walked in (one day, then back) to Majdenek, which is two hundred miles away from Auschwitz. For instance, Zisblatt writes on page 45:
    1. “Panic welling in the pit of my abdomen, I followed the guard with the other girls. I observed their unblemished skin. Could it be true that I was about to become a lampshade?”
  9. Zisblatt claims to have been the “guinea pig” of Dr. Mengele on several occasions, and claims he removed her tattoo. Evidence I have gathered disproves this, especially Zisblatt’s own 1995 videotaped Shoah Foundation testimony, as well as other sources. Zisblatt claims to drink urine while inside a dungeon during one experiment. She later describes swallowing feces-covered diamonds in a hurry, a story which changes in several of her interviews.

Zisblatt's Pilzen / General Patton Story Stolen From The Book Heroes of the Holocaust

  1. Zisblatt claims to have been liberated by a Jewish-American soldier, and sent to an American Army hospital in Pilzen, Checkoslovakia, where General Patton paid her a bedside visit and gave her several items he was wearing at the time (In her 1995 testimony, she only sees Patton “always yelling” in the forest). Two months later, still at the hospital, Zisblatt claims American soldiers brought in a Jewish woman who told her that the Nazis drained her daughter of blood (to death) for German soldiers. Historical facts show that days after Patton’s liberation of Pilzen, the Americans withdrew and the Soviets had control of the city for many years after that. Therefore, it is quite unlikely that Americans were anywhere near Pilzen in order to bring in a woman to a Soviet controlled area, and it is also questionable why Zisblatt never mentioned the changeover, if she was even in Pilzen in the first place. 
  2. Mr. Hunt has uncovered a newspaper article from The Miami Herald on January 22, 1995 which proves that Zisblatt tried to claim that she was one of three Jewish girls in a chapter of the Arnold Greir book Heroes of the Holocaust, in which a Jewish-American soldier liberates three Jewish girls near Pilzen. This, despite the fact that all three girls are mentioned by name, and are known not to be Zisblatt. This proves that Irene Weisberg Zisblatt blatantly stole other Jewish people’s experiences during World War II and passed them off as her own in order to further the Jewish political agenda and profit off of these fantastical tales.
  3. There is no documentation at this time to prove Zisblatt was in Pilzen. In fact, all documentation proves she was liberated in Volary, Czechoslavaka.
  4.  Volary is over 100 km from Pilzen.

Zisblatt studies at The Elie Wiesel School Of Lying in your Holocaust Memoirs

  1. Zisblatt's book takes several cues from Elie Wiesel's “nonfiction” book Night. For instance,

“Not far from us flames were leaping up from a ditch, Gigantic flames! They were burning something. A lorry drew up at the pit and delivered its load - little children. Babies! Yes, I saw it - saw it with my own eyes ... those children in the flames. “

                                                - Night

“I heard whispers of lampshades…of beautiful skin. The rumor was that a lady named Ilsa Koch was choosing women with beautiful skin…to use their skin to make lampshades. Lampshades! I would have never believed the prospect, but now…after what I had seen in the past two months…anything was possible.”

                                                - The Fifth Diamond, p. 45

Zisblatt Attacks "Holocaust Deniers"

  1. In The Fifth Diamond, Zisblatt attacks “Holocaust Deniers”, as if they are evil liars.
    1. She writes: “There are those who say the Holocaust never happened. I am one of the workers against those who tirelessly deny the Holocaust. Those who deny will not succeed because we remember.” 

Tormenting Naive Children, Trusting of Little Old Ladies and their Teachers

  1. The Fifth Diamond is currently in several public libraries and is promoted and forced upon American public grade school students in several states.

Steven Spielberg and Irene Zisblatt Sued For Libel

After reading and researching the book and then accessing Zisblatt's incredible original testimony, holocaust denier Eric Hunt sued in order to protect American public school children from the torment he endured in New Jersey public schools after realizing he'd been lied to all his life.
The Book The Fifth Diamond - To be put into evidence in the lawsuit

The Defendants have yet to respond to the mountain of evidence Hunt has compiled which proves Zisblatt is a liar.
They are trying to get the case thrown out on a technicality, but now Hunt is in contact with multiple lawyers who are assisting him.
Eric Hunt will not stop if this case is thrown out, Zisblatt will be exposed and the various men and women currently in prisons in Europe and Australia simply for writing or speaking the truth about World War II labor camps will be vindicated 


Irene Weisberg Zisblatt is the Female Elie Wiesel. She has taken the suffering she endured as a labor camp inmate in World War II, as well as the loss of her family members (almost certainly of disease, rather than gassing), and acted out against the non-Jewish world with revenge, all the while disguising herself as a kind, peaceful, walking miracle. 

Her hate and lies have tricked Pulitzer Prize winning film reviewers and middle school children.

It is absolutely impossible for anyone to win a debate against me, Eric Hunt, on the issue of the veracity of Irene Zisblatt, her memoir "The Fifth Diamond", or Steven Spielberg's 1999 Academy Award winning "documentary" "The Last Days." 

I would very much like for someone to try, rather than resort to name calling.
