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.
