BIRTH OF ELI SANDERS

The birth of Eli Sanders, father of Bernard ‘Bernie’ Sanders, occurs in ‘Poland’, meaning the Polish region of the Russian Empire (1900 boundaries).  Eli’s parents are Leon Sander and Ettel Horn (Ethel Horn).

“Their grandfather (meaning Leon Sander), who was born in Poland, was an active trade unionist.”
The New York Times – May 4, 2015.

Click on this map of Poland and Lithuania to enlarge.

Eli Sanders, born in Poland (then a part of the Russian Empire), has as his birth date, a date just before the time of the 1905-1907 Polish Revolution.
The Jews of Capitol Hill: A Compendium of Jewish Congressional Members (+) –  page 483 is a primary source of information regarding the location of birth, i.e. Poland.

The date of birth for Eli Sanders is December 1, 1900.  The date of death for Eli Sanders is October 6, 1965.  Eli Sanders is buried at Long Island National Cemetery (+) in East Farmingdale, New York, a distance of 36 miles from Brooklyn, New York.

Note:  The 1940 Census information states that Eli Sanders was 36 years old on April 10, 1940, an age at least 12 years older than his wife.  She probably believed that her husband was only 8 years older, hence the discrepancy.

BIRTH OF DOROTHY GLASSBERG (DOROTHY GLASSBU]\

[”RG)

The birth of Dorothy Glassberg (also: Dorothy Glassburg, married name Dorothy Sanders), mother of Bernard ‘Bernie’ Sanders, occurs in New York, New York.
1940 US Census
is the source of information regarding the ‘estimated’ date – April 10, 1940.
Her parents were Benjamin Glassberg and Brayna Greenberg (‘Bessie’ Greenberg), both were ‘Russian Jews’.  Dorothy was born at an unknown location in New York City.

Note:  Assuming that Dorothy, “died at age 46, when Bernie was 19,” as reported by Mark Leibovich, writing for the New York Times Magazine on January 21, 2007, then Dorothy could not have been born in 1913, as ‘Bernie’ Sanders did not turn 19 until September 8, 1960, and 46 years before that date was September 8, 1914.

ELI SANDERS LEAVES POLAND FOR A NEW LIFE IN NEW YORK CITY

Eli Sanders, father of Bernard ‘Bernie’ Sanders leaves Poland, “at age 17,” “after his family had been wiped out in the Holocaust,” (in 1917 or 1918).


Poland from 1918 until September 1939

The Jews of Capitol Hill: A Compendium of Jewish Congressional Members (+) –  page 483 is the source for both the age of when Eli left Poland and for the Holocaust claim.
The Jewish Telegraphic Agency also cites ‘Bernie Sanders’ as stating that his father came from Poland at age 17. 
June 10, 2015.

Note:  It is generally believed that the Holocaust did not begin until 1935, and before World War II it was confined to Germany.  Poland was not invaded by Germany until 1939.  The Polish Invasion is generally considered the start of World War II.

Assuming that the date of birth for Eli Sanders, of December 1, 1900, is correct, then the year for leaving Poland would be 1918, pursuant to the ‘October 1917 Bolshevik Revolution’.  This would suggest that the ‘holocaust’ referred to by Kurt Stone was actually the Bolshevik purge of  counter-revolutionaries.

Nevertheless, Mark Leibovich, writing for the New York Times Magazine stated on January 21, 2007, that, “Sanders’s parents were Jewish immigrants from Poland.  His father, Eli, a struggling paint salesman who saw his family wiped out in the Holocaust.”  Assuming that Leibovich is right, Dorothy Glassburg (Dorothy Glassberg) was also born in Poland, and not in America as has been claimed.  It should be noted that since Russia controlled Poland at this time, “Russian Jews” and “Polish Jews” were one and the same if they came from Polish territory.

On April 30, 2015, Sputnik International enjoined ‘further clarification’ by pointing out (falsely proclaiming) that: “His father, Eli Sanders, immigrated from Poland after witnessing family members falling victim to the Holocaust in World War II.”

MARRIAGE OF ELI SANDERS & DOROTHY GLASSBERG

Eli Sanders and Dorothy Glassburg were probably married in the year 1934.  Based on the reported age of Bernie Sanders at the time of Dorothy’s death, she was born in the year 1914 or 1915.  She may have been younger than 20 when she was married, but the 1934 date assumes she was 20.  Her husband, Eli Sanders was possibly 34, but she probably believed he was closer to 30.

JAMES MADISON HIGH SCHOOL ELECTION

Bernard Sanders (Bernie Sanders), “finished a distant third when he ran to be president of his class at James Madison High School in Brooklyn.”
Mark Leibovich, writing for the New York Times Magazine on January 21, 2007.

“It was the late 1950s, and Sanders was still a teenager, running to be class president at James Madison High School in Brooklyn, New York. His platform promised to raise scholarship money for kids in Korea orphaned during the recent war. ‘It was an unusual thing for a person so young to be involved in,’ remembers Larry Sanders (Lawrence Sanders), Bernie’s older brother. When the votes were tallied, Bernie fell short and lost. However, the winner (of the class election) adopted the Korean scholarship idea and made it happen.”

BERNIE COLLEGE SUMMARY – 23rd BIRTHDAY

“In Chicago, Sanders threw himself into activism—civil rights, economic justice, volunteering, organizing. ‘I received more of an education off campus than I did in the classroom,’ Sanders says. By his 23rd birthday, Sanders had worked for a meatpackers union, marched for civil rights in Washington D.C., joined the university socialists and been arrested at a civil rights demonstration. He delivered jeremiads to young crowds. The police called him an outside agitator, Sanders said. He was a sloppy student, and the dean asked him to take a year off. He inspired his classmates. ‘He knows how to talk to people now,’ said Robin Kaufman, a student who knew Sanders in 1960s Chicago, ‘and he knew how to do it then.’ He was a radical before it was cool.”

BERNARD SANDERS VOX INTERVIEW

‘Bernie’ Sanders, in a July 16, 2015 interview with Ezra Klein, at an unidentified location said, “One way which I find intriguing is that you basically provide $100 for every citizen in the United States of America, and you say to that person, ‘Here’s your hundred bucks, you can make a contribution, you can get a $100 tax credit if you spend $100 on any candidate you want.'” – United States Senator from Vermont and Democratic presidential candidate ‘Bernie’ Sanders.
Vox Policy and PoliticsJuly 30, 2015.

Two Minute Analysis:  320 million Americans times $100 is $32 BILLION dollars.  But since it is a ‘tax credit’, (probably good only for those 35% that itemize deductions) that means that at least 208 million Americans would not benefit, and of those that would, it’s statistically mostly the rich, and the VERY rich according to the graph linked.
