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.


  1. It is so sickening to see the worldwide holocaust hoaxers continue their blind dumb propaganda. Of course 6 million Jews did not die during ww2 given that their population remained stable from 1930 through 1945. What a joke.

  2. Another observation is the fuel required to heat the ovens/crematorium furnaces , it is estimated that 70 metric tons per 24hr was required to maintain the temperature. Combine this with there are no railway tracks or methods to move this fuel other than by human hands for 1100 days 24hrs per day (taking into account these building were built in 1942 to cope with the Typhus deaths and used until November 1944) Other reports also detail the furnaces had boilers attached and provided hot water for German soldiers to shower with. When you observe the semi attached building it is evident that these were actually shower/toilet blocks for the German army, based on fixtures and sealed floor penatrations for drainage and plumbing. Non destructive ground penatrating radar would confirm these services are still there.

  3. The Ruskies rebuilt it. Okay,what did they get out of it. Im just saying they’ve never gave a damn about what anyone thinks of them. I’d find it hard to believe they were being good samaritans.

  4. No gas chambers exist. Zyclon b is a delousing agent used to delousing the lice infested clothing after exiting the train.

  5. Hi, I’m the author of the article in question. I think you have misread my statement. I was simply saying that a chimney would have been used to evacuate the gas if that room had actually been a gas chamber, hypothetically. Maybe I could have written it a bit differently to make that more clear. The fake chimney they have there now obviously was not used for that since it’s not even connected to the building. And as another commenter pointed out, the real chimney wasn’t used for that purpose either.

    • Sorry that I misinterpreted what you wrote. The lack of a pipe to vent the gas out of the room is proof that the morgue at the main Auschwitz camp could not have been a gas chamber. You can read about how a gas chamber should be constructed at this website:

      This quote is from the website, cited above:

      “The inlet and exhaust system is designed for an air change every two (2) minutes. The air is supplied by a 2000+ cfm fan on the inlet side of the chamber and exhausted through the top of the chamber. The inlet and exhaust valves are both of the inwardly closing type to prevent vacuum loss and are timed to electrically open in sequence, the exhaust valve first. This is evacuated through a 40 foot high 13 inch diameter PVC pipe where the wind disperses the gas harmlessly. The intake air should have preheat capability to guarantee that no HCN will condense and thereby escape evacuation.”

      • No worries man, keep up the good work…

  6. The reason there is so much confusion about Auschwitz is because SS Grf Hans Kammler was in charge of top secret nuclear research at the plant. The same holds true for Mauthausen where Dr Schaumberger was designing top secret craft. Mystery solved.

  7. Following is a timeline of events relating to the chimneys of Krema I as gleaned from the text in my 1998 paperback edition (page numbers indicated)

    15.08.1940 – First chimney 10 metres tall completed (Chimney 1) and first cremation performed in the sole double-muffle oven (p.190)

    20.02.1941 – Second double muffle oven is completed (p.193)

    ??.04.1941 – Chimney height is increased to 20 metres (Chimney 2) to raise the performance of second oven by increasing the draft (p.197)

    23.06.1941 – Constant use results in the chimney cracking; cremations cease for 5 days whilst iron bands are put on the chimney (p.197)

    30.05.1942 – Installation of third double muffle oven finally completed; 8 months after it had been ordered! (p.209)

    30.05.1942 – Once all three ovens are fired up, the iron hoops on the chimney snap and deep cracks appear in the masonry. “The men of the Political Department began to fear that the smokestack would collapse on to their offices.” (p.212)

    12.06.1942 – Construction of a new chimney 15 metres tall begins (p.212)

    08.08.1942 – New chimney is complete (Chimney 3), cremations resume after 3 month gap during which a typhus epidemic raged (p.216)

    13.08.1942 – New chimney is damaged by the three triple muffle ovens constantly working at full capacity (p.216)

    ??.07.1943 – Cremations cease at Krema I (p.236)

    The authors make no mention of how cremations proceeded in Krema I following the damage caused to chimney no. 3 after just five days of operation.

    I should just mention that the air extraction systems of the both the crematorium and adjoining morgue (alleged to have been transformed in a homicidal gas chamber) dispelled the extracted air into the chimneys, or at least at times. Pressac & Van Pelt’s text is horribly jumbled and I don’t see the point in laying out their version of that issue out here. It’s besides the point.

    The image below is from Van Pelt and Deborah Dwork’s Auschwitz 1270 to the Present, and shows the plan for the new chimney (no. 3) following the installation of the third double-muffle oven (30.05.42) which wrecked the old one.

    The air extracted from the morgue was evacuated through the chimneys, at least at some points. See the cited book on the link for details or Mattogno’s book on crema I.

    • Good research black Rabbit. I did like the picture of the workmen constructing the benches for the show trial at Belsen on your web site. They look good and efficient ; I wonder if they had any advice from their US Dachau shower conversion workmen ?

  8. Once again, a case of not how the ‘organised cultured Germans’ would have done it, but more like how the ‘disorganised uncultured primitive Soviets’ would have done it.

    But nobody can see that

    Comment by DB — March 3, 2014 @ 8:02 am

  9. No high chimneys to evacuate poison gas (as the ones in the U.S. penitentiaries) and only a few meters between that “gas chamber” and the hospital, that Soviet propagandistic facility would have been a real Bhopal generator for sure.

    Would the Germans have converted such a gas chamber into an air shelter anyway? No doubt holes in the roof would have weakened the whole structure. Not a very proper place to protect people from bombs dropped by planes. And repairing the roof with concrete wouldn’t have helped as iron bars would have had to be cut when drilling the holes for homicidal purpose.

    • The alleged gas chamber in Krema I in the main camp was obviously a morgue to store the bodies until they could be burned in the ovens next door. Where did they put the 900 bodies, from each gassing, while they were waiting to be burned?

      A gas chamber cannot be next to an oven room because the heat would cause an explosion. A gas chamber cannot be right next to other buildings because the people in the buildings would be poisoned by the gas being vented through a pipe on the roof.

      Also, there was no undressing room for the Krema I gas chamber. Where did they put the clothes after 900 people undressed outside, before going into the gas chamber.

      If the Jews want to save the Holocaust religion, it is time to eliminate this gas chamber, the same way that a couple of the so-called gas chambers at Majdanek have been eliminated.

      • “If the Jews want to save the Holocaust religion, it is time to eliminate this gas chamber, the same way that a couple of the so-called gas chambers at Majdanek have been eliminated.”

        That’s true. But the Jews are doing the exact opposite. They are now trying to “resuscitate” the dead gas chambers – i.e. the “gas chambers” on the German-Austrian soil that they had formerly admitted to be propaganda lies – because they’ve understood that the “gas chambers” in Auschwitz, Majdanek, Treblinka, Belzec, Sobibor, Chelmno and Belzec weren’t in any way more proven than the “gas chambers” in Dachau, Belsen, Buchenwald, Mauthausen, Sachsenhausen, Theresienstadt, Ravensbrück, etc used to be. If ‘testimonies’ and ‘confessions’ have no probative value, they have nothing in their hands. And as physical evidence disprove the “Holocaust”, they now focus on the Reinhardt camps because they can avoid science with camps leveled to the ground. But they’re desperate people might know the only remaining “gas chambers” of the Holohoax were ‘documented’ by Soviet well-known liars.
