Wit is not in the world, it is said, and if that is true, then the untrue story that Peter Loth tells about his life is still true. Because the Holocaust Museum in Washington keeps him in his private archive as a survivor of the Shoah, control number 00356127, family number 00275927, persecution category: Jew, places during the war: KZ Stutthof, among others.
But that could soon be over. On Monday, the American Loth withdrew his admission as a co-plaintiff in the Hamburg district court through his lawyer. It turned out that he was neither born nor lived in a concentration camp and is also not a Jew. Loth’s life lie collapsed.
