“the evidence room” is back in the news about the Holocaust

Door into Auschwitz gas chamber has a glass window

I have visited the Auschwitz gas chamber several times. On my visits, I took photos of the reconstructed holes through which the Zyklon-B gas pellets were allegedly poured.

The following quote is from a news article which you can read in full at https://www.theglobeandmail.com/arts/art-and-architecture/rom-reveals-architecture-of-the-holocaust/article34731202/

Begin quote:

Now there is another book, The Evidence Room, written by Prof. van Pelt and three colleagues – Donald McKay, Anne Bordeleau and Sascha Hastings – to supplement the exhibition.

“It is difficult to imagine the details of a gas chamber, where humans were locked in to die,” says one Holocaust survivor, quoted in the new book.

Published by New Jewish Press, a Toronto firm, it will be available at select bookstores during the ROM run.

“One has to feel the double grates that protected the bucket filled with poison pellets from the desperate hands of the condemned, peer into the bucket, imagine the pellets melting away, the poison oozing out of them,” says the survivor. “Only then can real awareness arise in the soul and place the viewer inside the gas chamber.”

Most people are aware of the Holocaust, but to be taken inside the obscene killing machine is by all accounts an overwhelming and unforgettable experience. The Nazis killed about six million Jews, including three million in gas chambers (one million in Auschwitz and two million elsewhere).

“I touched the gas column – a reproduction of the device that inserted Zyklon B into the gas chambers at Auschwitz,” says the same witness to the 20th century’s worst nightmare. “As a Holocaust survivor, I felt the cold hand of history on my spine. I knew a good deal about the Auschwitz-Birkenau murder factory, but the gas column really shocked me. Because of what I had read about people thinking they were going into a shower room, I had always imagined the gas being dispersed by sprinklers.

Touching that construction had a profound effect on me – a new visceral recognition all these years later.”

The plans behind the killing machine are at once simple and obscene. The designers, engineers and architects who created it came up with a cheap and shocking solution.

The exhibit provides a reconstruction of the steel mesh gas column through which the Zyklon B pellets were lowered into the chamber. Viewers also examine a reproduction of original architectural drawings. Among the details: the door of the gas chamber with a tight seal around the edge.

  1. The fotos are excellent, and show well how absurd it is to claim this was a gas chamber: anyone who believes that is beneath contempt — also, as Rudolf points out, the rough concrete surface is almost ideal for the accumulation of Prussian Blue via repeated exposure to HCN gas — have the walls of the alleged gas chamber at Auschwitz I ever been tested for such CN residue/products? — while any found would not approach the concentrations seen in the former delousing chambers (which are so heavily stained you can clearly see the intense blue color from the outside), it would certainly be significantly above the concentrations found in control samples from other buildings — such a simple test which showed elevated levels of HCN residue would shut many ‘deniers’ right up — but of course it has not and never will be done.

  2. The holes are not “reconstructed”.

    They were knocked in the ceiling AFTER the war.

    There were no holes to “re” construct.

    • That’s right.

      The location of the “reconstructed” holes makes no sense. Coarse Bolshevik forgery…

  3. the Auschwitz-Birkenau gas chamber

    The phony holes are in the phony gas chamber in the Stammlager, aka Auschwitz I — not A-B.

    • You wrote: “The phony holes are in the phony gas chamber in the Stammlager, aka Auschwitz I ”

      You are correct. Thanks for catching that mistake. I have corrected it.
