Irene Zisblatt was 13 years old, 4 feet tall and weighed 60 pounds when she got stuck in the door of the Krema III gas chamber at Auschwitz-Birkenau.
During a routine roll call, Irene was confronted by Dr. Josef Mengele who asked her: “Was machst du da?” She should have been sent to the gas chamber long ago because she was only 13 and everyone under the age of 15 was gassed immediately.
A photo of the Krema III gas chamber building at Auschwitz-Birkenau is shown below. Note the 10 ft. high barbed wire fence around the building. Right next to the fence is a convenient railroad track where a gondola railroad car was parked on the day that Irene was sent to the gas chamber by that evil monster Dr. Josef Mengele.
Irene was all alone, and the gas chamber was already full. She tried to squeeze into the gas chamber, but she got stuck in the door. But not to worry. An SS man pulled her out of the doorway. Then a young Sonderkommando came to save her; he wrapped her up in a blanket and tossed her over the 10 ft. high fence, into a gondola car that was parked outside the gas chamber building. (The Sonderkommandos were Jews who helped the Nazis, by carrying the victims out of the
morgues gas chambers after they were gassed.)
According to this quote from another blog which you can read here:
…the young man must have been an athletics champion, as the distance between the railroad tracks and the fence around crematorium III was over 100 ft., the fence had a height of about 10 ft., and Chana weighed about sixty pounds. Fifth, if there had been a train with open cars waiting with prisoners near the crematoria, it would have been guarded by SS personnel who doubtlessly would have noticed the unconventional arrival of Chana by “air lift.” And last not least, she would have been noticed at the latest at roll call on arrival, because her name would not have appeared in the transport list.
A gondola car is a railroad car that is open on top; it is used primarily to haul coal or similar items, not passengers. The photo below shows a railroad car of the type that was used to transport passengers to Auschwitz.
Irene Zisblatt recorded her story of how she escaped from the gas chamber and you can hear her tell it on a YouTube video. Don’t try to deny her story or you might wind up in prison for 5 years in 20 different countries.
