Walter Dejaco and Fritz Erl, the engineers who designed the gas chambers at Auschwitz-Birkenau

Filed under: Holocaust — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 2:30 pm

Walter Dejaco and Fritz Erl were mentioned in an article in the Opinion section of The Australian newspaper today.  The article is critical of “the Fuhrer-fawning fringe”. (You know who you are.)

This quote is from the article, written by Nick Cater:

If the revisionists force us to examine yet again the banality of Hitler’s final solution to rexamine, for example, the blueprints for the factories of mass slaughter built at Auschwitz in 1943, and imagine what might have been going on the heads of architects Walter Dejaco and Fritz Erl, we are drawn irresistibly to Hannah Ardendt’s conclusion: “The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be either good or evil.”

I mentioned Walter Dejaco in a previous blog post, which I wrote at  https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2012/01/16/the-woman-who-slid-down-the-chute-into-an-auschwitz-gas-chamber/

Note the concrete posts, which were designed to hold up the roof of the alleged gas chamber, which was 5 feet below ground.  The alleged perforated metal columns, where the Zyklon-B gas pellets were poured into the  room, are not there.

Walter Dejaco and Fritz Erl were both put on trial as war criminals because of their work in designing the two main gas chambers at Auschwitz-Birkenau, which are known as Krema II and Krema III.  You can read about their trial at http://www.whale.to/b/1972_vienna_auschwitz_trial.html

This quote is from the website, cited above:

Between January 18 and March 10, 1972, two architects responsible for the design and construction of the crematoria [Krema II and Krema III] in Auschwitz-Birkenau, Walter Dejaco and Fritz Ertl, were put on trial in Vienna, Austria. During the trial, an expert report on the possible interpretation of the blueprints of the alleged gas chambers of the Auschwitz and Birkenau crematoria was presented to the court. The report concluded that the rooms in question could not have been gas chambers, nor could they have been converted into gas chambers.

My photo below shows a sign that is located at the ruins of Krema III. (Krema II was a mirror image of Krema III.)

The words on the sign, shown in the photo above are as follows:

A – Entrance to undressing room; C – undressing room; D- underground gas chamber; E – holes on roof for Zyklon-B pellets; F – five cremation ovens; G – chimney for the ovens; M – the International Monument built in 1967; K – gate on the main camp road which goes into the courtyard of Krema III. The dotted line across the bottom of the diagram denotes the main camp road. The five cremation furnaces, shown on the right on the display board, were triple muffle ovens with a total of 15 doors for shoving three bodies inside, so that 45 corpses could be burned at the same time. The ovens in Krema II could also burn 45 corpses at a time.

Note that the sign says “E-holes on roof for Zyklon-B pellets”.  Krema II and Krema III are now in ruins and no holes in the roof have been found by several revisionists who have examined the ruins.  That is the reason for the Holocaust denier cry of “No holes, no Holocaust.”

The photo below shows Krema III, as it looked in 2005 when I photographed the ruins.

The photo below shows a door, in the center of the photo, which was used by the SS men at Auschwitz Birkenau to enter the building without going through the undressing room.  This door was not included on the original blueprint.

Krema III was originally planned to be built at Auschwitz I, the main camp. The crematorium in the Auschwitz I camp had no morgue because the room, where a morgue was supposed to be, was a gas chamber.

The original blueprints for Krema II and Krema III called for corpse cellars that were completely underground and included a corpse slide which ended in front of the Leichenkeller [corpse celler] doors; this slide was never built. The SS entrance was built instead, but not in the same location as the originally planned corpse slide.

The photo above shows the ruins of the Vorraum [the underground vestibule] in the foreground of the photo, with the SS basement entrance on the right. This entrance allowed the SS men to enter the underground rooms in Krema III without going through the undressing room.

Notice the tour group, on the left hand side, in the photo above.

The ruins, shown in the photo above, are what is left of Krema III.  The building was called a Krema by the Nazis. Krema is the German word for crematorium.  Although this building was called a crematorium, not a gas chamber building, it had no morgue to hold the bodies, after 2,000 people had been killed at one time in the so-called gas chamber.  According to the True Believers of the Holocaust, the bodies were piled up outside the building to await burning in the 15 ovens, which could cremate 45 bodies at a time. The weather in Poland is extremely cold, and the bodies would have been frozen solid, if they had to be kept outside.  Allegedly, architect Walter Dejaco designed a crematorium with no morgue.

Don’t mention what you have read here in any of the 19 countries, now including Russia, where Holocaust denial is against the law, or you will find yourself confined to a prison cell for 5 years or longer.
