Yes Virginia, there is a gas chamber at Dachau

Filed under: Dachau, Germany, Holocaust — Tags: , — furtherglory @ 1:53 pm

For all you Holocaust deniers, who don’t believe that the shower room at Dachau was really a gas chamber, this recent news article about the Dachau gas chamber is a must read.

This quote is from the article:

The “new” [Dachau] crematorium (which had to be built because the old one proved inadequate for the number of corpses that had to be cremated) is even worse. Not only do the ovens, designed to accommodate human bodies, seem like unthinkable technical devices; the supreme horror is to stand in the gas chamber and imagine what it was like to be herded in there, the doors being closed and bolted, and to hear the hiss of poison gas escaping from the nozzles in the low ceiling above your head.

The gas chamber was disguised as a shower room — even now there is a sign on the wall next to the door reading [Brausebad] “Brauschbad” (or “Brauschenbad”, if I recall the word correctly). Arriving there for a “shower”, prisoners would enter, probably being fooled by the fact that the openings of the gas nozzles are disguised to resemble shower heads, as well as by the drainage grids on the floor, only to have the doors bolted behind them before realising that this was a death chamber.

Contrary to what the news article says, there was no way to bolt the door into the shower room gas chamber.

The article, which I have quoted above, does not have any photos to illustrate it, so I have added some of my own photos below.

Caution:  Don’t deny that the shower room at Dachau was really a gas chamber, or you might end up in prison for 5 years — or more.


  1. Even in 1943 the Nazis strictly avoided the words “Ausrottung” and “ausrotten” – extermination.exterminate and spoke about “Umsidlung” – change of living place – but avoiding to say where the new living place would be. At Wannsee they spoke about “Sonderbehandlung” – special treatment. You can kill people placing them into harsh living conditions and deseases, let them go starving, shot them or, in order to speed the action, by mass killing devices – Gas Chambers.. The Wannsee meeting had occured after the Wehrmacht had been stopped at 40 Km from Moscow and USA entered WWII, So the Nazis looked for a speeder way of getting rid ot the Jews and found the mass killing device Gas Chamber operating with Zyclon B which had been a suitable German product. Another problem the Nazis had here was: WHO IS A JEW? For the Nazis even the grandson of a Jew converted to other Faith was not a full German – Volksgenosse. So how to consider the nun Edith Stein, a jewess converted to Catholicism? So the number 6000000 – six milion victims – ought to be read “at least six milion victims as even converted Jews had been sent to the Extermination Camps but are not considered by Jewish statistics. Enough for today.

  2. People continue to believe in the myth called the holocaust and no I won’t capitalize the word. Its an insult to mine and every American’s intelligence. This is a giant ponzi scheme. Yes, Camps were modified after the war. The real holocausts happened in Dresden and in the Ukraine the Holodomor. No forensic evidence was presented at the trials. Confessions were produced by torture. The word holocaust was not a widely know one until the 1970’s and neither Churchill, Eisenhower, or de Gaulle mention them in their memoirs.

    Stories of Jews who claimed to have been in 6 or 7 camps and witnessed people gassed who allegedly die in 3 mins are fantasy at best. Zyklon B was delousing agent.

    This whole myth is built on indoctrination which has been helped along with the 38 holocaust museums in the US alone and the alleged event didn’t happen here and it also receives taxpayer funding. The DC location was built on prime public land given by President Carter. As for pictures taken in 2007 they prove nothing. Eric Hunt has done some wonderful work.

    The Dachau homicidal “Gas Chamber” is not a homicidal gas chamber because it was originally a real, operational shower room that US Psychological Warfare units modified to look like a “gas chamber disguised as a shower room” shortly after camp liberation. Among other crude modifications, they plastered a lower ceiling below the original, much higher ceilings.

    Days after liberation, a propaganda film was made by Jewish Hollywood filmmaker Philip Drell, of George Stevens’ (The Diary of Anne Frank, Shane) US Signal Corps unit. The film implies that inmates were gassed in this “gas chamber disguised as a shower room” and their bodies were stacked in the adjacent room.

    A sign once displayed in the fraudulently alleged Dachau “homicidal gas chamber disguised as a shower room” bizarrely read “Gas Chamber – Disguised as a Shower room – Never Used as a Gas Chamber.”

    Of course it was never used as a “genocidal gas chamber” – this was a Hollywood set!

  3. At the end of October 1944, the Auschwitz Gas Chambers stopped operation as ordered by Himmler. So, Commanders of remaining Camps like Dachau built one as their own way to obey Hitler’s order to kill Jews and political opponents. Eichmann tried to build a Gas Chamber at Terezin; works had been stopped on the order of Bohemia-Moravia Governor SS General Karl Hermann Frank who thought to reach a deal with the Allies, granting the survival of the last Ghetto.

  4. Please capitalize the word Holocaust. It’s a faith based religion. Thank you.

  5. I like your post. Yes they were gas chambers just like there were death camps that killed millions of innocent people. To deny the holocaust is moronic.

    • Apparently, you did not understand that my blog post was intended to be sarcasm. The title is a reference to a letter sent to a little girl, who had written a letter to Santa. I was trying to say that the belief in the Dachau gas chamber is analogous to the belief in Santa Claus.

      There are lots of morons, worldwide, who deny the Holocaust. That is why belief in the Holocaust is enforced by law in 19 countries. Why would laws be needed to enforce the truth?

      • Apologies for misinterpreting you post. A straight question for you. Do you deny that the Nazi’s wilfully murdered millions of people. A simple yes or no will suffice.

        • Yes.

          You can read about Holocaust denial on Wikipedia:

          This quote, which lists the beliefs of deniers, is from Wikipedia:

          Begin quote:

          Stories of the Holocaust were a myth initially created by the Allies of World War II to demonize Germans,[5] Jews having spread this myth as part of a grander plot intended to enable the creation of a Jewish homeland in Palestine, and now to garner continuing support for the state of Israel.[161]
          Documentary evidence of the Holocaust, from photographs to The Diary of Anne Frank, is fabricated.[5]
          Survivor testimonies are filled with errors and inconsistencies, and are thus unreliable.[5]
          Interrogators obtained Nazi prisoners’ confessions of war crimes through the use of torture.[5]
          The Nazi treatment of Jews was no different from what the Allies did to their enemies in World War II.[162]

          • You and other Shoah deniers ought to say where the great Jewish Communities of Central and East Europe disappeared to. You cannot say that they emigrated as emigration faced a lot of problems and barriers set just by USA and other states who after 1945 had interest to hide their own guilt for not having prevented the rise of Hitler to power and his first achievements (Austria, Bohemia, Moravia) and considered the Nazi Racist Laws and persecution of Jews an internal affair of Germany. The same powers are now bowing before the Islamic Fundamentalism who pledge to go on where the Nazis had to stop. My advice is to study better European History and Geography.

            • There were numerous Holocaust survivors who kept quiet for years and never spoke about how they survived. I blogged about one such survivor at

              There were many Holocaust survivors who came to America and the UK, after the war, but didn’t speak about being in a “death camp,” because this would have been denial of the “death camps.” There is no proof that the Jews, who were sent to Sobibor, Belzec, and Treblinka, were killed.

              Comment by furtherglory — January 4, 2015 @ 11:10 am

              • What went on in Sobibor and Treblinka, there are the statements in the interview by Gitta Sereny of the former Commander Stangle, who stood trial in the seventies in a West German Court. Not even Hoess of Auschwitz denied what happened. At any rate, the few survivors who after WWII reached USA, Israel or other countries are outnumbered by the large communities of Jews living in East and Central Europe before 1939. Besides, one should consider that it had been the Nazi doctrine to get rid of the Jews. Clear?
