Crematorium chimney in Auschwitz main camp not connected to anything

Filed under: Holocaust — furtherglory @ 4:04 pm

Today, I read an excellent article here, which I believe contains one tiny mistake; the article is entitled “Zionist exceptionalism, fears WW2 truth.”

According to the article, the chimney that is located beside the gas chamber, in the main Auschwitz camp, was used for the purpose of venting the Zyklon-B gas from the gas chamber, which was inside the crematorium.

Although a gas chamber is supposed to have a 40 ft. high chimney to vent the poison gas out of the room, the chimney at Auschwitz was not used for that. The original chimney was connected to the oven room in the Auschwitz crematorium; the chimney that tourists now see is a reconstruction, done by the Soviet liberators.  It is not connected to anything.

This quote is from the article, cited above:

Revisionist historians had long held that the [gas chamber] room was a fraudulent post-war contrivance of the communists and that it had never functioned as a gas chamber, but was actually a morgue that was later converted into an air raid shelter.

Some of the glaring problems with the structure include: the chimney, which was essential for evacuating the gas, is not connected to the building; the plain wooden doors at either end of the room are not air-tight; there are clear marks on the walls and floors showing where walls had once stood and toilets had once been; and multiple holes had been crudely smashed into the ceiling to give the appearance of openings for Zyklon-B gas pellets to be dropped from. The location of the chamber was also conspicuous, situated extremely close to the hospital and other buildings. The poison gas would have infected the whole area, creating an environmental disaster.

My 1998 photo above shows the entrance to the alleged gas chamber at the Auschwitz I camp; the alleged gas chamber was converted into an air-raid shelter by the SS men at the camp. When the Auschwitz camp was liberated by the Soviet Union on January 27, 1945, this was the entrance into the air-raid shelter, but the Soviets claimed that this was the entrance into a gas chamber.

The photo above, which I took early in the morning, in order to avoid the crowds of tourists, shows that the chimney is not connected to the building.  This is a chimney that was reconstructed in 1947, by the Soviet Union, at the time that they reconstructed the gas chamber.

Note that the chimney is completely detached from the building and it is not connected to the reconstructed crematory ovens.

The original chimney was round, according to Filip Müller, a prisoner who worked in the crematorium at the main camp.  When the chimney had to be replaced, by the Germans, the new chimney was square shaped. Other witnesses say that the original chimney was square.

In the photo above, the SS hospital is shown at the top of the photo. If this chimney was used to vent the gas out of a gas chamber, it would have poisoned the SS men in the hospital.  All of the photos of the alleged gas chamber in the main Auschwitz camp point to the fact that this could not have been a gas chamber.
