When HET students walked into the main Auschwitz camp, it looked something like this

When British HET students walked into the main Auschwitz camp in Jan. 2016, it looked something like this scene, taken 10 years ago

You can read about the latest Holocaust Educational Trust [HET] tour of Auschwitz in this news article:

http://www.suttonguardian.co.uk/news/14261657.

The following quote is from the news article, cited above:

Next, [on the tour] the gas chamber and crematorium [in the main Auschwitz camp]. Prisoners were told to remove their clothes before their “shower”, and even to remember which pegs they had left their possessions on, another perverse lie designed to keep order among the inmates.

End quote

My 2005 photo of the gas chamber in the main Auschwitz camp

My 2005 photo of the gas chamber in the main Auschwitz camp shows no shower heads, nor pegs for hanging clothes

There were no shower heads in the gas chamber in the main Auschwitz camp, and no pegs, upon which the prisoners could hang their clothes.

The article includes this photo of the scratches made by the prisoners as they were dying in the gas chamber:

Fingernail scratches on walls of gas chamber

Notice that the scratches are near the ceiling of the gas chamber. The adults held the babies up so that they could leave their marks on the ceiling as proof that people were gassed in this room. [Don’t deny this, unless you want to go to prison in 19 countries.]

This quote is also from the news article:

Slave labour was used to empty the chambers once all life had been snuffed out.

Did any of those “slave labour” men ever explain that there were no pegs for the clothing, and no shower heads on the ceiling?

This quote is also from the news article:

The 7,000 prisoners remaining at Auschwitz were liberated by the Red Army on January 27, 1945.

Why did the Nazis leave 7,000 prisoners behind when they abandoned the Auschwitz death camp? Didn’t it occur to them that these 7,000 prisoners would testify against them in future war crimes trials?

Actually, the prisoners were given the chance to march out of the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp, with German soldiers leading the way, tramping down the snow. The prisoners who stayed behind decided to stay in their warm beds and wait for the Soviet soldiers to rescue them.
