The Stairs of Death at Mauthausen are back in the news

When I checked the stats for my website this morning, I found that my pages  about the Stairs of Death at Mauthausen had gotten the most hits.

I did a search and found this news article about Mauthausen:

The news article includes two of my color photos of the steps, which you can see on my website. No photo credit was given.

I complained about this article when it first came out and wrote about the stairs in a blog post that you can read here.


  1. Hard to believe people believe this crap?
    From article on FG site…

    While most inmates were killed by shooting, hanging, beating, starvation, and disease, Mauthausen did have a gas chamber capable of killing about 120 people at a time. The gas chamber was usually used when transports of prisoners arrived. Special demonstration mass killings were organized for the benefit of visiting Nazi dignitaries, such as Heinrich Himmler, Ernst Kaltenbrunner, and Baldur von Schirach, who were able to observe the killings through a small viewing window in the entrance door.


    So let me get this straight…the “gas” chamber in above article looks like a regular shower room, so maybe someone with gas chamber expertise can show me how you get the poison gas to come out of the shower heads. Was it Zyclon B gas? In my wanderings around researching the issue ZB doesn’t work that way. I don’t know how ANY gas could work that way??? Without some big time set up and distribution system that would look like a Texas Refinery.

    To really get a good understanding on how gas chambers worked the Leuchtner report will fill you in.
    Or you can stay dumb and believe what the HoloHuxsters tell you which is….6 million jews or whatever ridiculous made up number they want you to believe this week, were killed in rooms that had no airtight seals, some with windows, no ventilation fans, no heaters, and in some cases no holes in the roof to drop the ZB pellets in. Or they show you real shower room telling you that the ZB or whatever silly gas was sent through the pipes eventually coming out of the shower heads which by the way would be logistically pretty hard to do.

    Or you can save yourself some time and read the Leuchter Report that gives you all the information you need to come to your own conclusion and have some common sense facts to back you up..
    Fred was one of the few that knew the process from a-z.

    • You quoted from my website about the Mauthausen gas chamber.
      When I went to visit the Mauthausen camp, there were signs all over the place, saying that photos were not allowed. I took photos anyway, and no one tried to stop me. No one said anything to me. If they had, I would have said “I’m old. I don’t understand what you are saying. I don’t know how to work my camera — it just keeps going off for some reason.”

      • There is no doubt you have the best pictures of the camps of anyone and we appreciate that.

          Did I ever mention that I won 1st prize in Photography at the California state fair one year?

          Each city in California was allowed to enter one photo. My city of Sacramento entered my photo after it was voted first prize for Sacramento by camera club members. Then out of all the first prize winners in every city, there were 400 photos picked for the final voting. The final vote was cast by 40 judges from 40 cities in California; these judges were professional photographers. I was as surprised as anyone that I won. A simple photo of a white flower wins in a contest in which 4,000 photos were entered, by professional and amateur photographers.

          My photo was a simple picture of a white flower; it was a picture that anyone could have taken, so why did it win? It won because the photo had pure white and pure black, and every shade of grey in between. It represented perfect exposure and perfect darkroom work, as well as perfect design.
