Councillor Terry Kelly: Force ‘Them’ to Live as Denis Avey Volunteered For

Today is the 65th Anniversary of the opening of Auschwitz-Berkenau by advancing Soviet troops. One recent discovery is the story of 91 year old Denis Avey (pictured right with his sister on the outbreak of war), a British PoW being held at the satellite camp of Monowice.

He befriended Jewish inmate, Ernst Lobethall (pictured top) who passed on the address of his sister, Susanna who had escaped to London before outbreak of war. A coded message to her resulted in a delivery of chocolates and cigarettes possible under rules of PoWs, which Avey supplied to Lobethall in order to barter for warmer clothes which undoubtedly saved him during the death marches as the camp was evacuated in the face of advancing Soviets.

Yet, the most amazing part of his story is when he willingly traded places *twice* with Lobethall in order to gain access to the hell-camps and bear witness to the tales of horror emerging from them:


He fully intended to get as far as Birkenau, where the gas chambers and crematoria were constantly in operation, belching acrid fumes.

He only made it as far as Auschwitz III, where he spent the night on two occasions. Detection, he said, would have meant death.

Denis Avey: “They knew they’d only last five months”

“They’d have shot me out of hand”, he said. “I took a hell of a chance.”

He was determined to bear witness with the intention of telling the world after the war. He recalled the camp as being “evil” like “Hell on earth”.


Avey briefly met up with Susanna Lobethall after the war, when it was believed Ernst had perished. They lost contact, and she later was unable to reveal to him that her brother had survived and moved to the USA.

Now known as Ernie Lobet, he recorded a video testimony for the Shoah Foundation in 1995 in which he referred to a British soldier whom he remembered only as “Ginger” who had undoubtedly saved his life with gifts of cigarettes.

Avey was unable to speak for over 60 years of the vision of Gehenna he saw. Now living in Derbyshire, he recently did and this enabled Susanna to be traced and for him to find out that he had made a difference.

Sadly, this came too late to be reunited with Lobethall/Lobet who died in 2002, but Avey is currently in line to be made one of the Righteous Amongst Nations by Yad Vashem in Jerusalem.

Meanwhile, taking full advantage of the free rope offer at Harry’s Place, Councillor Terry Kelly – who is some sort of socialist  – says:

here are all these tough guy Zionists breathing fire all over the place; Google ( Harry’s Place ) and see. What would these cowards have been like in the Warsaw Ghetto if they can’t face me?

What, fighting long and hard – including the Zionists amongst them – and kicking serious Nazi arse before taking the role called of them elsewhere by Kelly, and dying valiantly?

Not only are they quivering behind anonymity;

Your name vill alzo go on ze lizt. Vot ist it? Don’t tell him, Pike!

some of them are still clinging to the obvious fiction that it was me who wrote these comments;

No, Terry, there’s plenty on your blog to provide endless amusement.

Zichrona l’ivracha to Denis Avey. Something else to Terry Kelly. Same for that mackeral-slapper, Bishop Tadeusz Pieronek.

    Amen to all that.

    Kelly would run a mile, his beer-gut quivering, if confronted by a self-confident modern Jew – or by one of the heroes of the Warsaw ghetto.

    So would the antisemitic bish.

    BTW, it’s zichrono l’ivracha for a bloke :)

  2. efrafandays Says:

    Oh, I think Avey as he is now would be able to beat Slug Supreme in an arm-wrestling competition:

    Same for Alan Edwards. And, just to show there are some truly Righteous members of my tribe, consider Jean Haining in that same link.

    On the subject of Holocaust Denying bishes, I am hoping that Richard Williamson doesn’t visit a nearby monastery which his Order has links to. Not that Golgotha Monastry has any truck with his extra-curricular activities, or even the monks now worshipping in a garage.

    Still, where are the Vikings when you need them?

    PS Cheers for that. I was still thinking of Miep Gies. She died too young.

    Hi Alec

    Did you see this from Terry Kelly?

    I wonder if Israel will have the effrontery to award people with the “Righteous Among the Nations” award after they have finished cleaning away the blood of the children massacred by them, what moral authority does Israel now have, can Israel or anyone who supports their actions ever use the phrase “Righteous Among the Nations” again? and remember we still haven’t had the election yet, anyone with any shred of decency who is offered the award of “Righteous Among the Nations” should refuse to accept it and those who have this award should return it.

    Just profane.

    Nice one for remembering Denis Avey

  4. tevya Says:

    sorry, meant to add the link

  5. efrafandays Says:

    He’s not an ervah. An ervah is beautiful and interesting object…

  6. tevya Says:

    ervah = naked?

  7. efrafandays Says:

    Female pudenda, I assumed. Just as the orlah is a BBC journalist.

  8. tevya Says:

    Forbidden fruit?

  9. efrafandays Says:

    The orlah, as in Orla Guerin? I assumed that was synonymous with foreskin, as in Genesis 17:11.

  10. Mary's Little Lamb Says:

    Denis Avey is a Mensch!! And there is nothing sexier then a red head too!

  11. tevya Says:

    ha ha, but this from Chabad (who I’m a bit sorry to be quoting)

    Orlah: (a) The prohibition of benefiting from the fruit of a tree for the first three years after it is planted. (b) The forbidden fruit. (c) The tractate of the Mishnah that discusses these laws.

    top blog by the way

  12. tevya Says:

    bows to expertise

    why rabbits btw?

    • efrafandays Says:

      Not so much expertise as, with one particular question occurring, finding out as much as I could about only it.

      As for the treffy nature of the blog, a combination of reading Watership Down at the time of founding, and knowing someone called Efrat.

  13. Terry Kelly Says:

    Someone told me about this reference to me and Allthough I don’t usually read other blogs, I read this and I recognise Mr. Avey as exactly the kind of man who won the sympathy and respect of people all over the world after the second world war.

    I can’t help wondering now what Mr. Lavey thinks or would have thought of Israel today and what his reaction to the attack on Gaza approx 1 year ago is or would have been? Could someone hazard a guess without prejudice or invective and let me know?

    • efrafandays Says:

      Sweet merciful Jesus! Before I start the inevitable piss-ripping, Terry, could you confirm this is you on your blog?

      Man gotta know!

  14. Terry Kelly Says:

    Will your “piss-ripping include an answer to my question?

    • efrafandays Says:

      Not necessarily one you would wish to hear, but yes.

      You must appreciate my reticence, as Councillor Terry Kelly has made complaints to the Police about alleged spoofing on the Internet.

  15. Terry Kell y Says:

    I thought the nature of my comment would have suggested that it was from the real Terry Kelly.

    • efrafandays Says:

      That’s what was thought at Harry’s Place and Comment is Free, when even those of us who were familiar with your blog were taken in by the Turing test.

      A simple post on yer blog, with a link back to here will be sufficient. You can even call me an “anonymous coward” if you like ;) I will be happy to start a new thread; although it might take an hour or so, as I’m the only one maintaining this blog.

    I have told you already; I am not prepared to take part in your squalid little game.

    You are not prepared to take part in an honest argument so I’m not very concerned what you say.

  19. Terry Kelly Says:

    efrafandays Says: 22/02/2010 at 20:51

    As I suspected your mind is twisted and closed.

  20. Terry Kelly Says:

    Ana Says: 22/02/2010 at 21:02

    Ana you insisted that English was your first language; try looking up the word ‘maybe’

  21. Terry Kelly Says:

    o Ana Says: 22/02/2010 at 22:41
    “Your ‘explanation’ further compounded the offensiveness of the comment, as has been pointed out to you @ 20.32”

    It suits your lie filled existence to be offended.

    In this discussion you have

    *Stated you do not support the existence of Israel – correct.
    *Refused to condemn an attack on a synagogue – wrong I refuse to comment because I object to you exploiting the Jews who worship there.
    *Described yourself as an enemy of Israel, – correct. the worlds only Jewish state – correct and seen as the symbol of Jewish self determination by the majority of the worlds Jewish population – crap.
    *Lied with regards to your boycott of Israeli goods – nonsense go and read it again with reference to the use of the word ‘maybe’
    None of this makes you look good. You do neither yourself, nor your cause any favours by your behaviour here.
    I’ll live with that since it comes from you, you could of course be describing yourselves here.
    Place names, particularly if that place name is Auschwitz, deserve to be spelt correctly
    There are several different spellings of Auschwitz and it is a very weak point.

  22. Terry Kelly Says:

    Ana Says: 22/02/2010 at 22:47

    I think I know what is going on; how could i have missed it, you are kids aren’t you?

  23. Terry Kelly Says:

    o efrafandays Says: 22/02/2010 at 22:20
    Your questioning my ability to deal with my Jewish constituents problems does not bother me.
    “If a Jewish constituent approached you seeking assistance after they had been taunted with Hezbollah symbols at work, what would you do”?
    Help them.
    “Also, what d’you think of suicide-terrorism against soft-targets in Israel (such as pizza-shops or shopping arcades)?
    I think it’s a tragedy.

  24. Terry Kelly Says:

    Patricia Says: 22/02/2010 at 23:02
    I have answered questions as honestly as I can; it may not be what you want to hear but I can’t help that.
