Photos of the ruins of Krema II at Auschwitz-Birkenau

Filed under: Holocaust — Tags: , — furtherglory @ 11:55 am

A picture is worth a thousand words, so I am putting up some pictures of Krema II (the gas chamber building) at Auschwitz-Birkenau. The building was allegedly blown up by the Nazis on January 20, 1945. Or maybe by the Soviet liberators — who knows?  (The SS men had left on January 18, 1945, leading a death march out of the camp.)

These photos were taken by me in October 2005.  The ruins of Krema II have probably collapsed more since then, so I am sharing these photos.

Several revisionists have climbed down into the gas chamber, which is located under the collapsed roof shown in the photo above.  I am not sure if the hole shown in the photo is the hole that was used to climb down into the gas chamber.  These are NOT the holes that were used to pour the Zyklon-B pellets into the gas chamber.  Those holes have never been found.

April 26th, the anniversary of the day that Dr. Sigmund Rascher was allegedly executed at Dachau in 1945

On this website, you can read an article with this headline:  1945: Sigmund Rascher, feared science

The article on the website cited above begins with these words:

It’s on this date in 1945 that Sigmund Rascher is supposed to have been summarily executed in Dachau.

If that’s what happened, it’s no more than Rascher (English Wikipedia page | German) deserved.

There is a link in the article to a page on my website which you can read here. (the link on the website with the article does not work)

I don’t believe that Dr. Rascher was executed at Dachau.  I wrote a blog post about the alleged execution of Dr. Rascher, which you can read here.  (the website with the article links to my blog post)

Dr. Rascher conducted some very cruel experiments for the Luftwaffe (German Air Force) at Dachau.  America also conducted experiments for the American Air Force, but stopped short of letting the subjects die during the experiments.

The photo above shows a Russian POW who was the subject of one of Dr. Rascher’s experiments.  You can read more about Dr. Rascher’s cruel experiments on my website here.  I was horrified when I saw the photo above at Dachau.  The man looks like an American, but I learned later that he is Russian.

If Dr. Sigmund Rascher had not been killed, he would probably have been brought to America, along with other German scientists and doctors, after the war.  Or he might have been put on trial in the Doctor’s Trial at Nuremberg.
