The disinfection sign at Auschwitz

Filed under: Uncategorized — furtherglory @ 9:52 am

With a new Holocaust movie in theaters now, there will be a lot of interest in the gas chambers where the Jews were allegedly killed, so I decided to do a google search to find out what a google search would turn up.

The first website to come up in my search was this one:

I consider the website, that is cited above, to be an excellent source for studying the Holocaust.  That is why it comes up first in a search. Young people will be going to this website first.

My Auschwitz gas chamber web pages are way down on the results page, where few people will bother to read them.

The photo below is shown on the H.E.A.R.T  website page about the gas chambers, but in a smaller size.

On my website, I have a photo of this same sign, which I took at Auschwitz-Birkenau in the SHOWER ROOM that is in the building called the Sauna, which is shown in my photo above.

This quote, which is about the first gas chamber building at Auschwitz-Birkenau, is from the H.E.A.R.T  website cited above:

Begin quote

A farmhouse belonging to one of the evacuated inhabitants of [Auschwitz] Birkenau, which Adolf Eichmann had identified during his first visit to Auschwitz, had its windows walled up, its doors strengthened and sealed by screwing them in place, and shafts drilled in the walls. The entrance door bore the inscription “To the Baths”, and on the inside of the exit door , which opened out into the open countryside, the inscription “To Disinfection” was emblazoned.

End quote

My two photos above show the original signs on the wall which can still be seen in the Sauna building. The first sign says “Desinfizierte Wäsche.” Before their shower, the prisoners had to first be submerged into a tub of disinfectant to kill any germs or lice on their bodies.

The second sign says “Brausen” which means Showers in English. The yellow and black stripes alert visitors that the doorway is very low because people were shorter back in those days.

The H.E.A.R.T  website page which shows the disinfection sign begins with this quote:

Begin quote
Initially the process of killing and ventilation of the gas chamber lasted several hours. Later, after the installation of ventilators, this period was shortened to about an hour.

After this time had elapsed, the prisoners of the crematorium squad proceeded to burn the corpses. All of this took place in the deepest secrecy, with participation limited to the minimum number of SS men from the camp command and the Political Department.

Among those who took part in these actions were Maximilian Grabner, Franz Hossler, and the disinfection expert Adolf Theuer.

The modest capacity of the crematorium, which could cope with 340 corpses in the space of 24 hours and the difficulty of keeping the whole action a secret, resulted in the operation being transferred to [Auschwitz] Birkenau.

End quote

What I am trying to say here is that young people who are studying the Holocaust should go to more than one website for information.  In a google search, the True Believer websites come up first.



  1. I paged up the H.E.A.R.T website, and there is a table of figures regarding the four Kremas in Birkenau. Apparently they are claiming that there were 84 workers in each of the Sonderkommandos who were allocated to Krema’s II & III. (That was for the day shift – they needed one extra worker at night for some unknown reason.)

    Well, from what I saw of these rather small and compact ruined structures in Birkenau, it would be physically impossible for these facilities to contain that number of workers, along with all the other hundreds of doomed victims. There is just not enough area available for them to occupy – considering that the furnaces, ovens and all the ancillary equipment would take up a considerable amount of space as well.

    H.E.A.R.T. also claims in their table, that the furnaces in Krema’s II & III could each cremate up to 1,440 bodies in 24 hours. But to achieve this figure, then all the ovens in one Krema would have to be in full operation over that entire period, so that each retort could cremate 96 bodies in each ( i.e;- four bodies per hour! ) I believe the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial Museum actually confirms these figures.

    But in all honesty, they are both wallowing around in the realm of fantasy here. Even if all the ovens could be operated at their maximum operating capacity, there is no way upon this earth that you could cremate four human bodies per hour in each retort.

    But the problem for the holocaust proponents is, of course, that Krema’s II and III were purposely designed and built as morgues and crematoria for the disposal of individual human remains. They could not possibly be converted into a mass killing machine, without a major expansion and a total re-design of the entire structures. The numbers that were really planned to be cremated in each of these two Kremas was less than four hundred per week – not one thousand four hundred per day!

    • There were 30 muffles altogether for Krema 2 & 3 weren’t there ? That would be 48 per day per muffle. But do we know the dimensions of the muffles. It is possible that there was a layering technique used wherein the next body was introduced before the previous was fully cremated. Although to pull it off with a 1200 degree furnace would be quite a feat.

      • On the ground floor of the crematoria buildings, known as Krema II and Krema III, there were 5 large ovens where the bodies were cremated after being brought up from the gas chamber on an elevator. Each of the ovens had 3 openings, called muffles or retorts, which means that there were 15 ovens which could each handle up to 3 bodies at a time.

        Krema II and Krema III were T-shaped brick buildings which were mirror images. Each of the buildings had an underground gas chamber where Jews were allegedly murdered with Zyklon-B, a poison gas that was also used for delousing the clothing at Auschwitz-Birkenau. Both buildings are now nothing but ruins; they were blown up by the fleeing Nazis on Jan. 20, 1945, two days after the camp was abandoned.

        The underground gas chambers in Krema II and Krema III were not directly underneath the oven room, which was the part of the building that was above ground. The gas chamber rooms were covered only by a reinforced concrete roof and a layer of dirt, so that Zyklon-B, which was in the form of pellets, could be poured into the room through holes in the roof.

      • H.E.A.R.T. is claiming that Krema II could cremate 1,440 bodies per day, and so could Krema III – which makes a total of 2,880; i.e;- 96 bodies per retort. That’s an interesting suggestion of yours, though, that bodies were fed into the retorts even before the previous ones had been fully cremated. But as you say, the tremendous heat given off, plus the dangers of an accident occurring while such a process was underway makes this scenario very unlikely indeed.

        No, what the holocausters are proposing is not technically feasible, and in fact defies common sense. They are in a hole, and can’t climb out. They have to convince the world that the reason there were no human bodies found in and around Auschwitz, is that hundreds of thousands of human remains were somehow reduced to ashes, either in these totally inadequate crematorias, or in burning pits ( of which no trace has ever been found ).

    • I think that the H.E.A.R.T website is basing their figures on the original belief that there were 4 million deaths at Auschwitz; this figure was later reduced to 1.5 million and it is now down to 1.1 million.

  2. Inscriptions made to fool the Red Cross Delegate Roessel who “visited” Auschwitz at the end of December 1943 and could see the two Familienlager So he could report that all was satisfactory.

  3. The sign ‘Desinfizierte Wäsche” is written in the Past Tense and to any German speaking individual would indicate a store room for clean laundry. There is no inference to any Gas Chamber.

    • would indicate a store room for clean laundry

      Ja, genau.

    • I took the photo of the Desinfizierte Wäsche sign in the building which is called the Sauna at Auschwitz-Birkenau. Incoming prisoners were taken to this building for a shower and clean clothes. The building had a lot of hot containers where the clothes of the prisoners were disinfected.

      Incoming prisoners had to walk through a passageway where they took off their clothes and then went through a place where they were dipped in a tub of disinfectant to kill any lice on their body. This is where the sign was located. The clean laundry was stored in another room.

      You can read about it on this page of my website:

  4. “I consider the website, that is cited above, to be an excellent source for studying the Holocaust.”

    I JUST don’t get it.

    • Of all the True Believer websites, I consider the H.E.A.R.T. website to be the best.

      Of all the revisionist websites, I consider Inconvenient History to be the best. Your articles are excellent.

      Before the H.E.A.R.T website came into being, there was another website, on which the participants could not agree on the facts of the Holocaust. I was one of the people involved with the original website which eventually turned into H.E.A.R.T.
