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.

    True. Even the world-renown [exterminationist] Auschwitz ‘expert’ Robert Jan Van Pelt has now conceded that the holes to pour the Zyklon B pellets are nowhere to be found today. In his expert report he writes:

    “Today, these four small holes that connected the wire-mesh columns and the chimneys cannot be observed in the ruined remains of the concrete slab. Yet does this mean they were never there? We know that after the cessation of the gassings in the fall of 1944 all the gassing equipment was removed, which implies both the wire-mesh columns and the chimneys. What would have remained would have been the four narrow holes and the slab. While there is no certainty in this particular matter, it would have been logical to attach at the location where the columns had been some formwork at the bottom of the gas chamber ceiling, and pour some concrete in the hole and thus restore the slab. ” – Source: [Robert Van Pelt, expert report, page 518; see too trial transcript, Day 9, January 25, page 187.]

    But a Professor of Architecture like Van Pelt should know that those holes could still be observed today if they had really existed and if concrete had been poured in them to restore the slab.

    Example: This sealed ventilation hole in the roof of Auschwitz Krema I: http://vho.org/D/rga2/Image303.jpg (http://codoh.com/library/chapter/1833 – Fig. 26). This hole has been closed after WW2 “for museum purposes” but it can still be observed today.

    One can believe Van Pelt and think the alleged Zyklon B holes existed but are invisible today as if by magic or one can conclude those holes can’t be observed today because they have never existed…
