German TV and correspondents from the major papers thronged to this conference which dealt with one of the most difficult aspects of Holocaust history: faked biographies of Holocaust victims which put into question the genuine testimony of the survivors. Professor Julius Schoeps and his Moses Mendelssohn Centre in Potsdam near Berlin assembled a large number of scholars from the USA, Switzerland, Germany and Israel to comment on the strange case of a world wide bestseller Binjamin Wilkomirski: Fragments, which claimed to present the reconstructed memories of a child who survived the concentration camp.
