I met a holocaust survivor and she was taken. Her sister and and mother were digging up their graves when all of a sudden a Nazi soldier shot them both. They both fell in their graves and that's that last time the woman saw them. It was so sad. Her name was Mala Helfgott

Look, that her grandma is a holocaust surviver is amazing and a great history lesson to all. But the way its been presented in this video could've been done a lot different. "She was so badass" or "he had the hots for her" sounds way to glamorous and too "Buzzfeed" for this serious subject manner

Why did you blur out the faces of those nazis? Do you honestly think they will see this video and sue you for not getting their consent to put them in your video? THEY ARE WAR CRIMINALS. They don't have rights as American citizens, or German or any other countries. Why not embarrass them?

I'm sorry, but your story sounds VERY fake. The key that it's fake? Leon couldn't bribe the officers without a diamond because he would not have had his coat. His coat would've definitely been taken upon arrival to the concentration camp. Your grandmother can't strangle a German soldier because she would've most likely been weak and malnourished. I am not denying the Holocaust. It was definitely real. I am just denying the story this girl is telling.

I admit this story does seem kind of.. odd. The holocaust is real but I think her grandma over-exaggerated a bit.

This story is fake. The Holocaust is not, but this story is. I've actually been to a concentration camp before. Let me tell you; if ANYONE disobeyed, they'd get shot immediately, or executed later on. How should a teen choke a SS soldier that's 6 times more muscular than her, who wears rifles? And 4:32 ; couldn't be possible, all prisoners were stripped naked and got all their belongings taken away, even their hair. Yup, they shaved it right off. It's BuzzFeed. This story is as fake as their social justice system. BUT THE HOLOCAUST DEFINITELY HAPPENED. coming from someone who's actually German.

That nazi officer did not deserve to be blurred out. The face should've been shown, because they need to be exposed. They committed atrocious crimes to the jewish people.

We are learning about the Holocaust in school and reading * Number the Stars *. A Holocaust book. It’s a shame that they had to teach us about this and told us to prey it doesn’t happen again.

Watch guta's tapes. You'll see how the details of the story were twisted for views. Not saying Holocaust was fake, or the story of guta. But this video twisted the details a bit.
