Elie Wiesel in reference to his own writings
Elie Wiesel dead at 87. Was the man who personified the Holocaust a fraud?
Auschwitz inmate Miklos Gruner, 87, says the real “Elie Wiesel” doesn’t exist. The imposter assumed authorship of a novel by Lazar Wiesel whom Miklos knew personally.  The novel, “Night” gained Wiesel the Nobel Prize.
The man “Elie Wiesel” identified as himself looks way older than 17. He and Gruner are in the famous Buchenwald photo (See below main story)  In 2011 Gruner sued one of Wiesel’s accomplices, a rabbi, for slander, but lost.

Miklos Gruner personally approached this journal a few days ago to propose an interview. Gruner was accompanied by a friend, an Hungarian medical doctor. 
In May 1944 , when Miklos Gruner was 15, he was deported from Hungary to Auschwitz-Birkenau with his mother and father as well as a younger and an elder brother. He says that his mother and his younger brother were immediately gassed after their arrival in the camp.

Then he, his elder brother and their father had an inmate number tattooed on their arms and were sent to perform hard work in a synthetic fuel factory linked to IG Farben where his father died six months later.
After that, the elder brother was sent to Mauthausen and, as the young Miklos was then alone, two elder Jewish inmates who were also Hungarians and friends with his late father took him under their protection. These two protectors of the young Miklos were the Lazar and Abraham Wiesel brothers.
In the following months, Miklos Gruner and the Wiesel brothers became good friends. Lazar Wiesel was 31 years old in 1944. Miklos never forgot the number Lazar was tattooed with by the Nazis: A-7713.
In January 1945, as the Russian army was coming, the inmates were transferred to Buchenwald. During the ten days this transfer took, partly by foot, partly by train, more than half of the inmates died. Amongst them was Abraham, the elder brother of Lazar Wiesel.
In April 8, 1945, the US army liberated Buchenwald. Miklos and Lazar were amongst the survivors of the camp. As Miklos had tuberculosis, he was sent in a Swiss clinic and therefore was separated from Lazar. After recovering, Miklos emigrated to Australia while his elder brother, who also survived the war, established himself in Sweden.
Years later, in 1986, Miklos was contacted by the Swedish journal Sydsvenska Dagbladet in Malmo and invited to meet “an old friend” named Elie Wiesel… As Miklos answered that he doesn`t know anyone with this name, he was told Elie Wiesel was the same person Miklos knew in the Nazi camps under the name Lazar Wiesel and with the inmate number A-7713…
